Photograph: Dan Mullan/Getty Images Read more Sheffield Wednesday beat Reading 3-1 to reach fifth roundSheffield Wednesday reached the fifth round of the FA Cup with a 3-1 victory over Reading.Atdhe Nuhiu scored twice and George Boyd was also on target for the hosts at Hillsborough, with Reading’s late response coming via a Cameron Dawson own goal. The result extended Wednesday’s unbeaten start under new manager Jos Luhukay to five games.Wednesday took a 29th-minute lead with their first attack of note. A great ball from Frederico Venancio found Nuhiu, who fired past Anssi Jaakkola with a low shot from the right-hand side of the area. The home side extended their lead in the 53rd minute when Marco Matias did well to send over a low cross from the left wing and Nuhiu produced a close-range finish. Boyd then made it 3-0 soon after, slotting past Jaakkola following indecision in the Reading defence.Reading pulled a goal back five minutes from time when a deflected cross hit a post and went in off Dawson for an own goal, but it was nothing more than a consolation for the visitors. Press Association Twitter Facebook Manchester United FA Cup fourth round: match previews Topics FA Cup Share on LinkedIn Yeovil Town Eight players who could light up the FA Cup fourth round Share via Email In the end, as the flares billowed red smoke and those on the away terrace hollered their approval into the chill of the Somerset night, Manchester United’s passage into the fifth round proved a saunter. All the anxiety whipped up over the opening half hour, when Yeovil Town had threatened to the beat of the drummer in the crammed Thatcher’s Gold stand, had been forgotten. José Mourinho could look back on his 55th birthday with a sense of satisfaction.There was plenty to cheer the Portuguese here. He had surveyed the scene through much of the second period with his arms crossed and feet propped up on the raised edge of the pitch, content that his team’s lead would not be eroded. There was a clap of hands with his high-profile debutant, Alexis Sánchez, who had set up United’s first two goals after bursts of pace and slipped passes to team-mates and survived the odd hefty challenge meted out on the highest paid player in the English game before retiring 18 minutes from time.Mourinho wondered whether the home side’s centre-half, Nathan Smith, might have been fortunate to escape more than the yellow card flashed for his crunch through the Chilean on the half-hour while the contest was still goalless. “I understand [the referee] Paul Tierney’s decision not to show the red card because this is a special day, and 10 against 11 in that moment of the match and it is ‘game over’,” he said. Sánchez may have departed with a hint of a limp from his first outing as United’s No7, bruised from a brush with League Two, but this was a tantalising first glimpse of his qualities at his new club.The early signs were promising, even if others showcased their qualities just as persuasively. Marcus Rashford, excellent throughout, had capitalised on the first hint of hesitation in Yeovil’s rearguard, exploiting confusion between Tom James and Smith as each waited for the other to shepherd the ball back to Artur Krysiak. The finish was dispatched crisply before either could react for a 10th goal of term, his anticipation a class apart. Yeovil never really came to terms with the pace at which he moved the ball. His interchanges with Sánchez and Juan Mata, in particular, were played out at breakneck speed.Then there was Michael Carrick, on only his second appearance of the season, who oozed the calm authority of a player who was never likely to see the tail-end of his glittering career spoiled by a Cup upset. Once he had found his rhythm, United purred at their core. Angel Gomes, at 17, almost scored with his first touch. Throw in cameos from Jesse Lingard – a player whose involvement may actually be threatened by Sánchez’s arrival – and Romelu Lukaku, dispatching a volley into an unguarded net in stoppage time at the end, and there was gloss to this display. Yeovil’s energy had rather fizzled out once the adrenaline subsided and reality kicked in. This was a meeting between the side currently second in the Premier League and a team two points above the cut-off in League Two. If the gulf was bridged in the early stages, it gaped again at the end.Not that the locals could bemoan their team’s display. Yeovil were excellent while the tie was so frantic in the opening half-hour, tearing into their illustrious opponents with gusto almost from their prematch huddle. Jordan Green was a nuisance while Sam Surridge and Francois Zoko, booked inside the first minute for a challenge on Marcos Rojo, snapped remorselessly at United’s rearguard. Had Omar Sowunmi met Jake Gray’s early free-kick with more conviction, or Green not scuffed an attempt straight at Sergio Romero, then the locals may have had their lead. “We caused them problems and gave it everything,” said Darren Way. “We lived the dream for 90 minutes and couldn’t have done any more. I just needed Sánchez in my team.”The Chilean’s class would tell, for all the close attentions afforded him by Yeovil’s defenders. It was his corner from which Mata, on the spin, looped a shot on to the top of the bar, and his sprint down-field after Yeovil’s first corner of the second half just after the hour which culminated in a slipped pass to Ander Herrera at his side. The Spaniard finished crisply beyond Krysiak – excellent earlier in denying Scott McTominay – and United’s lead was doubled. “I thought Sánchez was world-class,” added Way. “As hard as we tried to stop their best players, it’s very difficult.”The manager’s consolation was the green light to sign three players on the back of this run to the fourth round, of whom one, Alex Fisher, came off the bench near the end having driven down from Motherwell. Ryan Seager will complete a loan move from Southampton over the weekend, with another to follow. This tie could have far-reaching effects in their battle to avoid relegation from the Football League. For United it was merely another hurdle comfortably vaulted en route to the latter stages. Share on WhatsApp Pinterest Share on Messenger Reuse this contentlast_img read more

After Maamanithan, Vijay Sethupathi to act in a romantic musical film

first_imgAfter Maamanithan, Vijay Sethupathi to act in a romantic musical filmAfter wrapping up director Seenu Ramasamy’s Maamanithan, actor Vijay Sethupathi will star in a romantic musical film, directed by debutant Venkata Krishna Roghanth.advertisement India Today Web Desk ChennaiJanuary 18, 2019UPDATED: January 18, 2019 13:59 IST Vijay SethupathiVijay Sethupathi, who recently starred in his landmark 25th film Seethakaathi, received mixed reviews from the audience and critics. The actor makes it a point to act in at least four films in a year.Currently, the Vikram Vedha actor is shooting for director Seenu Ramasamy’s Maamanithan in Kerala. After wrapping up this ongoing schedule, Sethupathi will move on to his next flick, which will be directed by debutant Venkata Krishna Roghanth.The exciting part of this film is that it is a romantic musical film, which will be shot in and around a church. Speaking to a daily, the director said, “The entire film happens during two months – December and January – amidst Christmas and New Year revelry. So, a church forms the major backdrop. As per the script, we need it to be a really old church. After scouting for one and not finding any, we realised that it would be better if we erected a set of the church. Our producer Esakki Durai also agreed to this. Since the church has to be situated in a hill station, art director John Britto has taken references for its architecture from the actual designs of British and Indian architects of that time.”Also, Vijay Sethupathi will be sporting a new look for the untitled movie. “His character is more like that of a tramp, and he will have the look of a freaky musician,” Venkata Krishnan revealed.Nivas Prasanna of Sethupathi and Thegidi fame has been roped in to compose music for the film. He travelled to the US to research about musical films.advertisement”The music has to be a mix of western classical and folk, and Nivas felt that it would be better if we recorded the music in the US, so he went there for a few days to do the background work,” the director shared.ALSO READ: Karthick Naren teams up with Arvind Swami againALSO WATCH: Arvind Swami on #MeToo movement and censorship at Conclave south 2018Get real-time alerts and all the news on your phone with the all-new India Today app. Download from Post your comment Do You Like This Story?

Conservatives have advantage as barbeque circuit campaigning for fall election begins expert

first_imgOTTAWA (NEWS 1130) – With summer officially underway, federal politicians have spread across the country to hit up the so-called barbeque circuit, looking to secure your vote ahead of the election in the fall.David Coletto with Abacus Data believes the Conservatives have the upper hand as campaigning begins, with the sun shining on Andrew Scheer and his party. But while the Tories are front runners, there is still a lot of unpredictability to come.RELATED: PBO sets budget baseline for campaign vows with tools, deficit projections“Got a four to five point lead in most polls. If you look at who their voters are, they’re typically a little bit older, they’re more motivated to vote. I think the Conservatives have the advantage.”He says the unpredictability will likely come from the left, thanks to a big split of progressive votes between the Liberals, NDP and the Greens. The Liberals could use second place to their advantage by tapping into progressive fears.RELATED: Renata Ford, widow of late Toronto Mayor Rob Ford, to run for People’s Party of Canada“They can make the claim that the Conservatives are looking likely to win, so that can help consolidate those progressive voters. This is not a Conservative slam dunk victory. This is going to be a hard, competitive election.”Coletto says he expects some fierce campaigning on all fronts ahead of the October vote.last_img read more

Kavinder Bisht stuns world champ to enter Asian boxing Cship semis

first_imgBangkok: Kavinder Singh Bisht (56kg) upstaged reigning world champion Kairat Yeraliyev, while Amit Panghal (52kg) edged past familiar foe and Olympic champion Hasanboy Dusmatov, assuring themselves of medals at the Asian Boxing Championships here Monday. In the women’s draw, world silver-medallist Sonia Chahal (57kg) advanced to the last-four stage at the continental showpiece. Bisht clinched a split verdict over Yeraliyev, who hails from Kazakhstan, in a high-intensity contest to assure himself of a maiden Asian championship medal. Also Read – Puducherry on top after 8-wkt win over ChandigarhPanghal, who claimed a bronze in the 2015 edition of the event, also secured a hard-fought 3-2 triumph over Dusmatov, the former world champion Uzbek he defeated to claim the Asian Games gold just a few months ago. Before that, the two boxers had also clashed in the world championship quarters where Dusmatov had emerged triumphant. Sonia too fetched a similarly close victory over Korea’s Jo Son Hwa. Also making the semis was national champion Deepak Singh (49kg), who did not have to step inside the ring to fight for the spot after Afghanistan’s Ramish Rahmani gave him a walkover owing to injury. Also Read – Vijender’s next fight on Nov 22, opponent to be announced laterHowever, world championship bronze-medallist Lovlina Borgohain (69kg) bowed out of contention after a quarterfinal loss to reigning world champion Chen Nien-Chin of Taiwan. The highlight of the day was Bisht, who came into the tournament after a gold medal at the GeeBee Tournament in Finland. The boxer from Uttarakhand showed tremendous grit against a tough opponent. Yeraliyev succeeded in drawing Bisht into a trap in the opening three minutes of the bout but the Indian fought back hard in the next two rounds. Bisht fought mostly with a shell guard and managed to thwart Yeraliyev’s relentless attacks. By the second round, the Kazakh, who is a two-time bronze-medallist at the event, dropped his guard. Although Yeraliyev seemed the quicker of the two, Bisht was managing to outmanoeuvre him quite comfortably. Yeraliyev was also a bronze-medallist from last year’s Asian Games. Sonia also endured an exhausting bout against Hwa but came out trumps. The fast-rising boxer from Haryana struck some clean jabs in her thrilling win. In the evening session, Panghal and Dusmatov had the crowd on its feet with an engrossing showdown. The Armyman from India dominated the opening round with powerful uppercuts and jabs. Dusmatov came back strongly and was quite impressive in the second round but the resolute effort was not enough to find favour with the judges. However, it was deja vu for Borgohain. She was up against a rival, who defeated her just months ago in the world semifinals. The stage was different but the result was the same as Chen dominated the bout from start to finish for a 5-0 triumph. In another women’s bout, Seema Poonia (+81kg) lost to China’s Yang Xiaoli 5-0, ending another disappointing international outing for her. Poonia had got a bye into the quarters. In the last Indian bout of the day, Rohit Tokas (64kg) fought hard but could not avert a 2-3 loss to Mongolia’s Chinzorig Baatarsukh in the quarterfinals.last_img read more

Concerns raised over continuous postponement of LG polls

Concerns have been raised over the continuous postponement of the Local Government (LG) elections.The March 12 movement today drew attention towards the continuous postponement of the proposed local government election and other issues associated with it. The electoral term of Batticaloa Municipal Council was the first to end, which was around four years ago.  Subsequently, the electoral terms of numerous other local government institutions too concluded from time to time. The primary reason for this delay, was the new system of elections that was introduced with the mutual consensus of all the political parties. The two delimitation reports which were prepared in order to implement this mixed system of elections, while the first report was flawed and the second report was delayed, became the decisive factor that affected the delay in commencing elections. “Although such was the reasoning for the said delay, the point that warrants further contemplation is attributed to the fact that on which day, would be the local government elections which should empower the closest institutions to the general public, could be held. A continual postponement of this nature being imposed on elections would not at any rate be palatable for the general public whether or not the legal provisions set out in the constitution advocate accordingly. Even amidst the said delay, the immediate task at hand is the passing of the proposed draft amendments to the act that has already been presented to the parliament,” the March 12 movement said. March 12 movement urges the relevant stakeholders to submit nominations only for suitable candidates, having taken the relevant points above into consideration. And the said stakeholders are urged at the same time, to retain transparency throughout the entire process of selecting candidates.Moreover, March 12 movement expects that the 25% quarter allocated for women candidates as per the amendment act 01 of 2016 will not be changed via any of the provisions introduced in the draft amendment bill which is to be passed in the parliament.Carrying out the aforementioned tasks is the most immediate responsibility that should be fulfilled at present by the representatives of the general public. Creating a clean political culture is a collective responsibility that should be shouldered by the entire citizenry while the said responsibility is unavoidable for the members of the parliament as the representatives of the people. Apart from that, it is also can be known as a public consensus. Accordingly, March 12 movement requests all the representatives of the general public to honour the public consensus vested upon them while preserving the sovereignty by commencing the said election with immediate effect. Furthermore, it noted that in the proposed mixed system of elections, the selection of council members take place as per the nominations of the respective political parties.Hence it is revealed that the responsibility of selecting candidates with an impeccable conduct in politics and an untarnished character lies with the leaders of political parties and the organizers in districts and respective electorates. Accordingly, the contribution that can be made by the candidates towards the creation of a clean political culture is indeed immense. March 12 movement is a voluntary public movement comprising of various government and non-government organizations and institutions. The eminent persons who have extended their services beyond the realms of their respective organizational commitments, are also contributing to this movement in their individual capacities. March 12 movement which was initiated with the view to fostering a clean political culture in Sri Lanka, embarked on its mission of social activism with the March 12 declaration that was launched on the 12th of March in the year 2015 with the unanimous agreement of leaders of all the political parties in the country.

New top UN envoy in Kosovo visits flashpoint city of Mitrovica

But, he added, “We cannot bring people together by force.”Mr. Holkeri, a former Finnish prime minister was appointed Secretary-General Kofi Annan’s Special Representative and head of the UN Interim Administration Mission in Kosovo (UNMIK) last month to succeed Michael Steiner, a German diplomat.He again condemned the killing of two Serbian teenagers and the wounding of four others by unknown gunmen while they were swimming in a river in the Pec/Peja region earlier this month, and a gun attack this week in Bica/Binxhe.“These horrendous acts were carried out by the enemies of Kosovo’s future,” Mr. Holkeri said. “No stone will be left unturned until those responsible for the crimes committed in Kosovo are found.”Mr. Holkeri told journalists at the Cultural Centre, by the Mitrovica bridge that separates the mainly Albanian and Serbian sections of the city, that art and culture had an important role in bringing people closer together.“Art is a universal language,” he said. “The more dialogue we can facilitate, the more people will recognize their common interest in cooperation. Let us all learn from the arts and work for reconciliation.” “I hope this centre will increasingly function as a place where people from both sides of the Ibar River meet and discover what is common to them, through art and through culture,” he added. read more

Iraq top UN envoy welcomes adoption of draft text of constitution

Secretary-General Kofi Annan’s Special Representative Ashraf Qazi reiterated the UN’s commitment to assist the transitional process in Iraq in accordance with relevant UN Security Council resolutions.In a statement issued by the UN Assistance Mission for Iraq (UNAMI) Mr. Qazi urged the people of Iraq to participate in the referendum to exercise their democratic right of choice.“He also urged the Iraq Government to ensure conditions that would enable all Iraqis to peacefully and securely advocate their point of view, and to participate in the referendum free from intimidation and violence,” the statement added.He noted that the distribution of the draft text among the Iraqi people would enable them to make an informed choice on whether to accept or reject the document during the referendum scheduled for 15 October 2005.Over the past months, Mr. Qazi has devoted much of his time to trying to ensure the participation of all elements in the country’s political transition, particularly Sunni Arabs who largely stayed away from January’s elections that chose the transitional assembly.Sunni Arabs, who represent some 20 per cent of the population, were the dominant political force in Saddam Hussein’s ousted regime. Shiites represent about 60 per cent and Sunni Kurds some 20 per cent. There are also other smaller communities such as Assyrians and Turkmen. read more

Ohio State embracing The Grind as it takes the field for spring

The OSU football team returned to the practice field on March 10 at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center, less than 2 months after the Buckeyes beat Oregon in the 1st-ever College Football Playoff National Championship. Credit: Tim Moody / Sports editorThe Ohio State football team is coming off its eighth national title, returns three Heisman-caliber quarterbacks and a likely Heisman front-runner at running back — but it still has doubters.At least that is what senior linebacker Joshua Perry said Tuesday after the Buckeyes concluded the first day of spring practice.“It’s just the nature of the game and the nature kind of being in the position that we are in. We’re one of those teams that’s got a great tradition and we’ve been good in the past, but you know there’s always that little bit of doubt,” Perry said.While some might say it was indeed a fluke in 2014, the Buckeyes completed “The Chase” and have created a new motto for the 2015 season: “The Grind.”Perry said the new slogan was created by two people not on the playing roster: coach Urban Meyer and strength and conditioning coach Mickey Marrotti.“The grind is a lot of things. It’s what our program is about. You sharpen, you shape, you pulverize. It’s a lot of friction and so we like that,” Perry said. “It’s how you develop players and get the best out of people.”Meyer said he worries about motivating his players to make another run at a title, but that’s not his main focus at the moment.“Right now, we are not into the motivation. It’s just about improving. As long as a player or program feels like it’s getting better, then the motivation is going to be there,” Meyer said.The Buckeyes will have a plethora of experience on the 2015 roster as the offense and defense each graduate just four regular starters.Senior offensive lineman Taylor Decker said while he understands people doubting the Buckeyes, he and his teammates are not buying into any negativity.“I can see why there are reasons people could doubt us, not that I believe in those. We did lose players that were vital to that team last year,” Decker said. “It’s kind of scary, a team coming off a big season like we did, to have a let down because you don’t want guys to think they’ve arrived, or be entitled to winning games.”The current Buckeye senior class enters the 2015 season having won 38 of 41 games, and that figure doesn’t include redshirt-seniors like Braxton Miller. The quarterback returned to practice in a limited role on Tuesday for the first time since August.As Miller returns from a torn labrum, the majority of the Buckeyes are feeling healthy and are ready to begin “The Grind,” Perry said.“I think we did a really good job this offseason being smart and taking care of our bodies. Guys were talking about how fresh they felt, I felt fresh today and ready to go,” Perry said. “I think when you’re anxious to get back out there on the field, a lot of that stuff goes away. If you have a nagging ache or pain, you just wanna get back out there.”Perry said the people who might doubt the OSU football program are the ones who make the Buckeyes want to get back out on the field.“It gives you a little bit of extra energy. It wouldn’t be as fun if everybody was always just cheering you on,” Perry said. “You kind of need those doubters to give you a little bit of that extra edge.”With doubters fueling their drive, Decker said it’s time for the Buckeyes to get back to work, less than two months removed from a national title.“We have to start that next journey for next season,” he said. “We can’t idle because of what we did last season.”The Buckeyes are set for their annual Spring Game on April 18 at Ohio Stadium before opening the 2015 season on the road against Virginia Tech on Sept. 7. read more

Bryan Ferry shocked and saddened after exwife Lucy Birley found dead at

Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily  Front Page newsletter and new  audio briefings. Lucy and Robin Birley, pictured in 2013 Bryan Ferry has paid tribute to his former wife, Lucy Birley, who died alone and surrounded by her dogs in unexplained circumstances.The Roxy Music frontman said he was “shocked and saddened” to learn of the socialite’s “tragic” death at the age of just 58. The couple were married for 20 years and had four sons.The singer once credited her with saving him from a “distraught” time in his life.Birley, a former model and society heiress, was married to Robin Birley, the nightclub owner. She died while on holiday in Ireland.None of her family were with her and have all been making their way over to Ireland over the last 24 hours, the Telegraph understands.It is not known whereabouts in Ireland Birley died but her family has strong links with Connemara and Co Galway. The eldest, Mark, 65, owns a popular B&B in Co Clare.Birley married Ferry in 1982 and they had four sons, Otis, Isaac, Tara and Merlin, before “drifting apart” in the wake of her long battle with alcohol addiction and his focus on work. Lucy Birley, in 2004Credit:Matthew Fearn/PA In an interview in 2011, Birley explained how she had naturally shied away from the spotlight.”My family’s attitude to the press and publicity was very much that it was frowned upon,” she said.“You only appeared in papers if you were born, married or had died.”Her sons have had their own brushes with publicity. In 2004, Otis, the eldest, then 21, stormed the House of Commons to protest against the foxhunting ban. Three years later, he was briefly jailed following a scuffle with two women involved in a hunting protest.In 2005, she married Birley, the son of Lady Annabel Vane-Tempest-Stewart, who left her husband – entrepreneur Mark Birley, the founder of Annabel’s nightclub – for Sir James Goldsmith.Birley and her four sons said in a statement: “On Monday Lucy Birley (nee Helmore) passed away whilst on holiday in Ireland, surrounded by her beloved dogs, Daisy, Peg and Daphne.”Her husband Robin, and her sons – Otis, Isaac, Tara and Merlin – are understandably devastated and request that their privacy be respected during this difficult time.” Lucy and Robin Birley, pictured in 2013Credit:Tom Dymond/REX/Shutterstock Her father Patrick Helmore, a wealthy Lloyds underwriter, died in a devastating fire at the family’s picturesque fishery in Connemara in 1997, thought to have been caused by a faulty electric heater.The cover of one of Roxy Music’s best-selling albums, Avalon, featured the lake adjoining the 100-year-old wooden lodge.Birley had spoken of her fond memories of fishing on the lakes there during family holidays with her three brothers.

GFMS reports on platinum and palladium mine production

first_imgGFMS, a leading precious metals consultancy, has released its sixth annual report on the world’s platinum and palladium markets – Platinum & Palladium Survey 2009. GFMS noted in the report that global mine supply of both platinum and palladium in 2008 registered steep declines in output, of 7% and 10% respectively. For platinum, much of the fall was ascribed to South Africa’s 8% drop, where production was affected by, among other factors, the country’s energy problems and serious flooding and subsequent temporary closure of the Amandelbult mine. A near 10% drop in output from Russia, led by disappointing production from its largest producer Norilsk Nickel, compounded the annual decline. Increases in supply from Canada and Zimbabwe, however, of 11% and 6% respectively, served to offset these losses somewhat.The survey details how the onus of the 10% drop in palladium production fell in broadly equal measure on Russia and South Africa. In Russia, which generated over 40% of the world’s palladium output in 2008, a decline in output of just over 10% was due to a number of factors. These included extreme weather and plant maintenance downtime at Norilsk’s properties. South African production fell by 12%, hampered by losses at some of the country’s biggest mines, notably Impala. Canadian supply was severely affected by the collapse in prices which led to the closure of the country’s leading palladium mine, Lac des Iles, in October.GFMS reported that in 2008 platinum miners’ total cash costs (on a platinum equivalent basis) expanded by a little over 30% in US dollar terms. The report’s cost analysis is based on a platinum equivalent ounce basis in order to facilitate a like-for-like comparison between operations. Cost increases were primarily attributed to the industry’s high proportion of fixed costs coupled with lower metal production.Turning to the 2009 outlook for platinum and palladium mine supply, GFMS’ Senior Consultant, Peter Ryan noted that a broadly neutral outcome is expected in South Africa this year for platinum. Losses originating from the closure or downsizing of operations in recent months are expected to prevail, although these should be largely mitigated by a handful of greenfield project starts and in select cases a return to more normal operations following non-recurring events last year. The consultancy’s view for other regions is broadly negative. Declines are expected in Russia, USA and in Canada where the closure of Lac des Iles and, to a lesser extent, the temporary suspension of Vale Inco’s operations in Sudbury will create a meaningful shortfall. GFMS pointed out that in all three cases this will have a more pronounced impact on palladium supply.last_img read more

CES 2013s maybes unfinished products that show serious promise

first_imgThe cool thing about seeing any unfinished product at CES is that you’ve got a direct line to the manufacturer. You can offer opinions about a product before it is available, and the creator can make changes if necessary to ensure a successful product. Unfortunately, it also means that the cool gadget you just saw may never grace the shelf of your local electronics store.With CES’ forward-looking nature in mind, we’ve gathered up a couple of our favorite pre-production items from the show floor in the hope that they’ll be ready to sell some day. Read on and see what the future of gadgetry may behold…The DubSteinIt’s hard to walk past a booth that is clearly designed to force you to ask what a “DubStein” is. This huge mug features a pair of speakers, an FM radio, and a Bluetooth connection to pair to your smartphone. If you felt like your morning coffee was lacking in sick beats, or if you wanted a portable grill-side music player that also held an ice cold adult beverage, the DubStein is for you.The top of the handle includes a d-pad style layout for switching tracks and controlling the volume, while a display on the side of the mug offers up track information. The inside of the mug has a removable insert to hold either a hot cup of coffee with a spill proof lid or becomes a cavity large enough to snugly hold your beer bottle, making it pretty clear that those are the primary options for musically enhanced beverage consumption.The DubStein only exists as plastic models right now. The manufacturer hasn’t set a price point, shipping date, or anything resembling a product launch. At the moment, the founder isn’t even sure which version of Bluetooth he plans to use, or how large the battery that powers the speakers will be.The DubStein is about as far as you can get from being a complete product and still show off at CES, but as concept products go, this one seems quite fun.iPin laser pointerFew things on the CES show floors screamed “cat toy” as loudly as the iPin. This impressively small laser pointer plugs in to the headphone jack of your iPhone and, with the help of a one button app, turns your phone into a feline-friendly laser pointer.The 3.5mm jack adapter just barely sticks out of the top of the iPhone, and the 100mW laser that shoots out isn’t bright enough to do much more that illuminate a presentation screen in a dark room… or excite your cat. You could easily leave the iPin in your phone all the time, unless of course you use your headphone jack for headphones.There wasn’t pricing or availability ready to announce just yet for the iPin, but the hope is to have the accessory available for less than $20 when it hits shelves. According to the manufacturer there are plans to make an Android capable version as well, but the focus right now is to support iOS devices.Tylt Energi backpackNot many people are able to brag about the “all day” battery in their smartphone, tablet, or laptop. Most still need to plug in at some point during the day, especially if they are heavy users. So many users resort to huge battery packs that wrap around their phones, or that require tethering the device to a big battery in your pocket, purse, or backpack. In the past we’ve seen companies try to make bags with batteries and cords sewn in before, but the implementation has always been flawed. Powerbag, for example, makes a great bag with plenty of battery power, but the micro USB cable doesn’t charge fast enough to power current generation Android phones and there’s been no update for the Lightning port on the new iPhone and iPad. Tylt approaches the problem prom a fresh perspective by building the bag around the needs of as many users as possible.A 10400mAh battery powers three USB ports. One port offers a dedicated 2.1A circuit, while the other two split a 2.1A circuit, in order to offer enough power for smartphones and tablets and enough battery to charge both more than once. The backpack has been built to allow users to wire their own cables throughout the bag however they choose, including a slit in the bottom of the bag to run a cord straight to your hand in case you’d like to use the phone while it is charging. The backpack is also designed to be airport friendly and slides on top of roll-on cases with ease.Rather than manufacture and sell these immediately, Tylt has put the Energi backpack on the Kickstarter-esque ChristieStreet. If the project reaches $50,000, the company will start manufacturing the backpack and selling them directly. If you participate in ChristieStreet, the bag will run $169. After the project is funded, the backpack will retail for $199.As far as unfinished projects go, CES offered quite a few interesting concepts that would be really cool to see on shelves sometime this year. For many companies, this is a multi-year process. There are companies that were showing off launch products this year from concepts that were shown off last year. In many cases, some of the concept products seen at last year’s CES didn’t make it to shelves until Christmas this year, so there’s no telling how long we’d wait for any of these products if they even show up at all.Photography by Chris Sewelllast_img read more

Roland Garros pas de match pour les abonnés mobiles Bouygues et SFR

first_imgRoland Garros : pas de match pour les abonnés mobiles Bouygues et SFRFrance – C’est au tour des fans de terre battue de dénoncer la gestion des contenus exclusifs d’Orange. L’opérateur étant le seul détenteur des droits de diffusion sur mobile du tournoi de Roland Garros, il prive les abonnés SFR et Bouygues de tennis sur leur téléphone. Le groupe France Télévisions a beau détenir l’exclusivité de retransmission des matchs de Roland Garros sur le petit écran, c’est Orange qui possède ces mêmes droits pour les mobiles. De quoi contrarier les abonnés Bouygues ou SFR, qui ne pourront profiter du tournoi de tennis sur leur mobile jusqu’en 2013, date de la fin de l’exclusivité d’Orange. Jeu, set et match pour Orange donc, qui monte au filet sans laisser une chance à ses adversaires de participer à l’échange. Les mobinautes qui ne l’ont pas choisi comme opérateur ne peuvent observer qu’un écran noir s’ils se connectent sur France 2, mais aussi sur France 3 ou France 4 ! Trois chaînes perdues pour le prix d’une. Les abonnés grognent, rappelant qu’ils s’acquittent d’une redevance télé qui devrait leur donner accès à ces chaînes publiques. Des abonnés qui pourraient obtenir compensation de la part de Bouygues ou SFR… lesquels envisageraient alors certainement de demander à Orange de leur rendre des comptes.  Le 31 mai 2010 à 15:29 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Le monde des diatomées dévoilé au microscope électronique

first_imgLe monde des diatomées dévoilé au microscope électroniqueL’océanographe Paul Hargreaves a réalisé en collaboration avec l’artiste Faye Darling une série de clichés de diatomées, des petits organismes unicellulaires du groupe des algues brunes.A travers ses clichés, l’océanographe Paul Hargreaves dévoile un monde peu connu : celui des diatomées. Ces petits organismes, formés d’une seule cellule forment un groupe bien caractéristique appartenant à la classe des algues brunes.Impossibles à distinguer à l’œil nu, ils sont pourtant très répandus dans le monde et depuis très longtemps. Les scientifiques avancent que ces organismes étaient déjà présents à l’époque des dinosaures. On les retrouve presque systématiquement dans tous les plans d’eau douce ou salée. Les diatomées peuvent vivre seules ou former un amas de formes variées.Pour rendre compte de la diversité de ces organismes marins, Paul Hargreaves a réalisé une série d’images en collaboration avec l’artiste Faye Darling. Le principe de la réalisation consiste tout d’abord à prendre le cliché à l’aide d’un microscope électronique. L’image est ensuite confiée à l’artiste qui les colorise numériquement. À lire aussiPourquoi l’eau des océans est-elle salée ?A la base considéré comme un loisir, ce travail de colorisation est devenu petit à petit une activité à plein temps pour Faye Darling. Elle témoigne au DailyMail : “Ce travail peut me prendre moins de trois heures comme parfois près de 30 heures”. Son objectif consiste à rendre les clichés plus attrayants. “J’essaie de tourner ces photos en noir et blanc en des images plutôt inhabituelles et les transformer en des petits bijoux pour que les gens puissent en prendre conscience”, explique-t-elle. Un objectif réussi, la galerie de photos fait ressortir une multitude d’organismes ressemblant à des œuvres d’art modernes. Un surprenant observatoire multicolore.Découvrez ces images étonnantes de diatomée en cliquant ci-dessous :https://www.maxisciences.com/diatom%e9e/diatomees-un-scientifique-et-une-artiste-devoilent-leur-incroyable-diversite_art14151.html Le 21 avril 2011 à 16:38 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Bernardo is in the team at the moment,” he explained.“We’ve got players that have taken a while for whatever reason, not their endeavor but because of the form of the team.”“At this moment, the squad is in a good place in regard of numbers. Possibly there won’t be any business but if there is it will be minimal. You can never say no,” he commented.last_img read more

Kabir Singh row Kangana Ranauts sister targets Alia Bhatt to defend director

first_imgRangoli Chandel and Kangana Ranaut (left), Alia Bhatt in Gully BoyTwitterAt a time when Kabir Singh director Sandeep Reddy Vanga has been facing a lot of heat for his recent comments, Kangana Ranaut’s sister Rangoli Chandel yet again targeted Alia Bhatt while defending the director.Comparing the characters of Kabir Singh with that of Safeena played by Alia Bhatt in Gully Boy, Rangoli slammed people who have been criticising the film Kabir Singh for its apparent abusive nature.Kangana’s sister opined that while a lot of feminists have been lambasting Sandeep and his film’s character for its abusive behaviour, no one said anything about Alia’s character in Gully Boy, which was similarly violent in nature.Rangoli pointed out that Safeena in Gully Boy was shown breaking bottle on a woman’s head when she and her boyfriend played by Ranveer Singh started getting close. While Safeena repeatedly attacked girls who she felt were getting close to her boyfriend, but never questioned the guy, Rangoli pointed out.Rangoli ridiculed the people who found Safeena as a flawless character, but went ahead criticising Kabir Singh.Read Rangoli’s tweets below:”yeh jo berozgaar anpadh gawar feminazi jo Kabir Singh pe kood pade hai, Inko Gully Boy ke Safeena @aliaa08 mein kuch burai nahin lagi, she was violent, abusive and criminal beyond Kabir can ever be [sic].””Every time her boy friend slept with another woman please note she never said anything to him, woh Raja beta hai, but she broke bottles on woman’s head, they are hospitalised and criminal cases were put on Safeena [sic].””Woman against woman, if your man cheats on you don’t want to talk to you not take your calls go beat up the woman he likes, yeh sab feminist ispe khade hokar taliyaan marte hain… socho !! [sic].” While so much being said about Kabir Singh and its director, the controversy is far from being dead anytime soon. Meanwhile, Sandeep recently triggered another row with his comments, wherein, he said that people in deep love should have the liberty to slap or kiss their women.last_img read more
