first_imgOusmane Dembele’s start to life at Barcelona has been frustrating so far, and with the recent arrival of Philippe Coutinho, the competition only gets tougher.Signed from Borussia Dortmund in August for a club record fee of 147 million euros ($175.3 million), now surpassed by the 160 million euros the Catalans spent on Philippe Coutinho, the Frenchman was brought to Camp Nou to replace Neymar.WATCH VIDEOLeft reeling after Paris St. Germain activated the Brazilian’s 222 million euro buy-out clause, Barcelona spent more than half of that money on a player who could light up their attack in the same way Neymar did.However on Dembele’s second start for the club, against Getafe on Sep. 16, he tore his hamstring.What followed was more than three months of recovery work, until he was finally able to make his return last week against Celta Vigo in the Copa del Rey last-16 first leg, as a substitute.That was followed by his first start since injury, in the 3-0 La Liga win over Levante on Sunday, playing well without making a large individual impact until he was replaced in the 67th minute.�??� [BEHIND THE SCENES]�??� The Inside View of @Dembouz ‘s return at the Camp Nou�??��??� Força Barça FC Barcelona (@FCBarcelona) January 7, 2018Although fans are anxious to see the winger perform at the level he managed at Dortmund, it may take some time for him to build up his form and fitness.Barcelona team mate Jordi Alba is certain the 20-year-old will get back to his best and improve beyond that too.advertisement”(Dembele) is adapting perfectly to the club and he’s a great kid. You have to have patience because he’s very young, but he’s going to make us better, he has tremendous qualities,” Alba told Gol TV.”We’re talking about a spectacular player and little by little his performances are going to get better.”He can strike a ball brilliantly with both feet, we don’t know if he’s left or right-footed. And he’s so quick. We haven’t done any tests but I think he’s quicker than me.”�??? A very special moment for @Phil_Coutinho!�??��??� #CoutinhoDay FC Barcelona (@FCBarcelona) January 8, 2018VERSATILECoach Ernesto Valverde picked Dembele on the right side of the attacking three midfielders in a 4-2-3-1 formation against Levante, a set-up he last used at Athletic Bilbao.In the second half the winger moved over to the left flank, showing his versatility, with Andres Iniesta coming inside and Lionel Messi taking Dembele’s original spot.”I know that I have a long way to go to get to my best level and I have to keep working for that,” Dembele told Barca TV.”The hardest thing during this time was maintaining the concentration to recover quickly, I need to have a lot of patience to integrate myself into the team bit by bit.”With Barcelona nine points clear of the competition in La Liga, Dembele has the chance to bed in without pressure and turn a troubled start into a perfect finish, with the club hoping for success on three fronts.last_img read more

first_imgNEWARK, N.J. — Gustav Nyquist and the Detroit Red Wings pulled out a victory over the New Jersey Devils that seemingly slipped away with a terrible start.Nyquist scored the only goal in the shootout, and the Red Wings rallied for a 5-4 win on Nov. 28. Detroit had trailed 4-1 before surging to victory.“We all said that things weren’t going good, and we had to forget about it and rebound,” Nyquist said.That they did, as Riley Sheahan, Xavier Ouellet, Justin Abdelkader and Drew Miller scored for the Red Wings in regulation. Backup goalie Petr Mrazek, in his second start of the season, made 21 saves through overtime.“It was a big win for us,” Mrazek said. “After the overtime, I was pretty excited, because it was my first NHL shootout. It was great, because I had to stay positive after a tough first period.“I couldn’t think much about it. But we all played hard and got it done. I’m really happy about this one.”Mike Cammalleri scored two power-play goals for New Jersey. Jaromir Jagr got his 709th goal, moving into sole possession of sixth place on the NHL career list — one ahead of Mike Gartner. Peter Harrold also scored for the Devils.New Jersey lost more than a game. Travis Zajac and Adam Henrique, the team’s two top centers, missed the third period. Their status for the Nov. 29 game on Long Island is “uncertain,” Devils coach Pete DeBoer said.Zajac has a lower-body injury. Henrique has an upper-body injury.Nyquist beat Cory Schneider in the third round of the shootout, and Mrazek sealed the win with a pad stop on Michael Ryder.Mrazek was the fourth backup the struggling Devils faced in five games. New Jersey has only three wins in 12 games.Jagr had two points, giving him 1,770 and moving him within one of Marcel Dionne, who is fifth on the career list.The Red Wings have won three in a row and five of six. Niklas Kronwell and Henrik Zetterberg each chipped in two assists.The Red Wings scored a third unanswered goal when Miller netted his first of the season at 10:07 of the third period to make it 4-4.Kronwell drove hard to the net, only to have his shot blocked. Miller swatted the loose puck into the left side of the net.“When you’re not scoring, you don’t get chances like that,” Miller said. “So I was lucky to find the rebound, and just put it in there. It feels great. It was a huge goal for the team and a huge goal for me.”Ryder had a solid chance to pull it out for Devils in the closing minutes, but couldn’t deposit the backhander.Jagr, Cammalleri and Harrold staked the Devils to a 3-1 lead after one period. With the teams skating 4-on-4, Jagr got the Devils rolling at 2:18.Detroit countered with a power-play goal at 3:50 when Sheahan deflected Kronwall’s blast from the left point by Schneider.Cammalleri put New Jersey back in front at 2-1, snapping in a shot from the left circle for a power-play tally at 13:52.Harrold, taking a feed that Jagr threaded through traffic, scored from the right circle dot at 15:18.It was the first goal in 49 games for the Devils defenseman, playing in his second game this season following a recall from the minors on Nov. 17.Cammalleri struck again on the power play, 28 seconds into the second period, for the Devils’ third unanswered goal.A seemingly secure advantage slipped away as the period progressed.Ouellet, left alone in the slot, got his first NHL goal at 1:55 to cut the deficit to two. That energized the Red Wings as they outshot the Devils 17-6 in the period.The Devils blew a golden opportunity to reverse the momentum with a 5-on-3 power play for 1:56. New Jersey managed only one shot in that span.“We had a chance to extend the lead and didn’t do anything with it,” DeBoer said. “That was a key moment in the game. Then, we took a lot of penalties and let them back into it. I expected us to have a little bit more of a killer instinct, but we didn’t have it.”Abdelkader, wide open in the slot, swatted a pass out from Henrik Zetterberg for a power-play goal at 12:52 to trim the Devils’ lead to 4-3. And the tide had turned in Detroit’s favor.“How many leads can we continue to lose, good healthy leads? There are no excuses for us,” Cammalleri said. “I hope we’re not ready to dwell over this. We can’t overthink things. We have to pull up our socks, man up and get ready to play a big one against the Islanders.”(MIKE FARRELL)TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

first_imgKolkata: Eight Trinamool Congress councillors from Halisahar municipality including Chairman Anshuman Roy, who had joined the BJP in May this year, returned to their old party on Tuesday.The official announcement in this connection was made by senior Trinamool Congress leader Firhad Hakim, who is also in charge of the state Urban and Municipal Affairs department. After being with the saffron party for a brief period of time, the councillors rejoined Trinamool Congress, in presence of party leaders Firhad Hakim, Jyotipriya Mullick and Nirmal Ghosh, at the Press Corner outside the Assembly. It comes as a significant move at a time when the BJP is trying to create a dent in the ruling party in the state by taking away their members. Also Read – Centuries-old Durga Pujas continue to be hit among revellersWith the return of these eight, the total number of Trinamool Congress councillors in the 23-member Halisahar municipality board has gone up to 12. The remaining 11 seats still belong to opposition parties. With the latest development, the Trinamool Congress is all set to regain Halisahar municipality from BJP, which had taken command over the activities of the municipality since May. It may be mentioned here that Trinamool Congress earlier had the strength of 21 out of the 23-seat municipality. Also Read – Bengal family worships Muslim girl as Goddess Durga in Kumari PujaAfter the eight councillors returned to Trinamool Congress, Firhad Hakim said that they had been forced to join BJP by Arjun Singh, who had unleashed a reign of terror in the area. Singh, who was a Trinamool Congress MLA from Bhatpara, joined BJP ahead of the Lok Sabha elections as he was denied ticket by Trinamool Congress. Singh subsequently contested from the Barrackpore Lok Sabha seat on BJP’s ticket and eventually came out victorious. “These eight councillors were forced to join BJP on gunpoint. They were threatened of dire consequences by Singh. After joining BJP, they soon realised their mistakes. They had been in a suffocating atmosphere within the BJP and hence expressed their desire to return back to our party. A woman councillor was even threatened that her son would be killed,” Hakim said. Hakim added that the eight councillors have also met party supremo and Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and sought an apology from her. They have also realised that BJP is not the party where they could stay for long. “They have heaved a sigh of relief after returning to Trinamool Congress,” Hakim said.last_img read more

In his latest report to the Security Council on the work of the United Nations Integrated Peacebuilding Office in Sierra Leone (UNIPSIL), Mr. Ban notes that “immense challenges” remain in generating jobs for young people, especially in the current economic climate.Currently, some 800,000 young people are unemployed, employed without remuneration or underemployed, he writes, stressing that reversing this situation requires stepped up international investment.The country’s former minister of fisheries and marine resources is still on trial for alleged corruption, and the number of cases being investigated by the Anti-Corruption Commission continues to be steady.UNIPSIL was established by the Security Council in 2008 to continue UN efforts to augment peace in Sierra Leone following the end of the country’s civil war in 2002. It has the mandate of providing political advice to foster peace and political consolidation, offering support and training to the national police and security forces and strengthening democratic institutions.The Secretary-General pointed to three significant developments that could potentially greatly impact UNIPSIL’s efforts to shore up peace in Sierra Leone which occurred in the March-August reporting period.Firstly, he writes, the country is already gearing up for the 2012 elections, and secondly, the Government has speeded up initiatives to wrap up several important mining agreements, which could allow Sierra Leone to become a major mineral exporter.Lastly, presidential elections in neighbouring Guinea could potentially usher in a new democracy in the Mano River Basin area of West Africa.“While generating great benefits for Sierra Leone, these developments could also carry considerable inherent risks that bring new and complex challenges, which the Government, political parties and other political stakeholders in Sierra Leone will have to anticipate and manage in the immediate future,” the report notes. 22 September 2010Although Sierra Leone has made strides in consolidating peace and fostering national reconciliation, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon says that the West African nation must address the issues of high youth unemployment and corruption to ensure that the gains are not reversed. read more

The bulk of the money, $56 million, is earmarked for road work throughout the county.Some of those funds will help pay for projects on Galveston Island. Work is also scheduled for communities such as Santa Fe, League City, Friendswood, and Texas City. Other funds are earmarked for projects in the unincorporated areas.Galveston County Precinct 4 Commissioner Ken Clark says more people are moving to the region but drivers are still using roads that were built for a smaller population. He cites as an example the intersections along State Highway 96 in League City.“With the increase in traffic you’ve got turning movement traffic interfering with the main lanes,” explains Clark. “And by adding additional storage you’ll be able to make those intersections run a lot smoother.”Voters also approved another $6 million in bonds for drainage work. Clark says most of that will be used along flood-prone Dickinson Bayou, which spilled out of its banks during Harvey.“We may be able to utilize state and federal funding to leverage the money that the voters approved to even get a more robust project moving forward, or multiple projects,” adds Clark.The bond issue also includes $18 million to upgrade county facilities. That includes renovations to the county annex in League City and expansion of the Galveston County Medical Examiner’s office. Sharelast_img read more

first_imgBy George Kevin Jordan, AFRO Staff WriterIt was the meeting that everybody and nobody saw coming all at the same time. In a wood paneled room last week at Rayburn House Office Building, in D.C., in a space designated for Committee on Oversight and Reform, D.C. representative to Congress, Eleanor Holmes Norton (D), flanked by Mayor Muriel Bowser, and Council Chair Phil Mendelson, to announce her plan to introduce H.R. 51, her bill to make D.C. the 51st state of the United States of America.“Yesterday as the 116th Congress began, I introduced my first bill of the session – H.R. 51,” Norton said to the audience that responded in applause. One hundred and fifty five representatives of the House already co-sponsored the bill, Norton added.Surrounded by District leadership, including Council Chairman Phil Mendelson and Mayor Muriel Bowser to her right, U.S. Rep. Eleanor Holmes Norton (D) advocates for D.C. statehood with the bill H.R. 51If the excitement about D.C. becoming the 51st state feels a little like deja vu, it’s because it has been a topic of District chatter for years, and Norton has been in a David and Goliath battle for full statehood since she first held office.During the 2016 D.C. general election the Advisory Referendum B District of Columbia was introduced to “ask the electorate if the Council should petition Congress to enact a statehood admission act to provide to the state of New Columbia and to approve a Constitution.”According to data from the D.C. Board of Elections 85.69 percent of voters (244,134) approved the referendum. Then in 2017 Norton introduced HR.1291 to the Senate.The movement has gained traction since then and now the support coming from D.C. carries a big gavel.Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi offered a statement regarding H.R. 51, the current Washington D.C. Admission Act: “The right to vote and to equal representation is the foundation of our freedom and a core pillar of our democracy. For too long, the residents of the District of Columbia have served our nation in uniform, paid taxes and contributed to the economic power and success of our country while being denied the full enfranchisement that is their right.“Democrats are working to pass bold, ambitious legislation to restore the Voting Rights Act, finally grant full voting rights and statehood to the District of Columbia and bring back integrity to Washington to ensure our government works (for) everyone,” Pelosi added.D.C. has a long history regarding state rights going back to the 1700s. But now with a Democratic House in place, the push for statehood could make it to the mountaintop.An old and valid talking point for statehood is the fact that residents of the District don’t just pay federal taxes they pay more per capita than anywhere else in the nation, according to calculations done by the Associated Press in 2017.“Twelve thousand dollars per capita is what you pay in federal taxes,” Norton said. “Higher than the taxes paid by or equal to any state in the union. Yet they pay those taxes without having any representation in the union whatsoever. And no final vote on the house floor.”The pathway to statehood is still bumpy as Republicans run the Senate and the Oval office.Norton laid out a two pronged plan to get the District there. The first thing is to seek a vote on H.R. 51 in the House of Representatives. Norton promised that a commitment was made by Elijah Cummings (D-MD), who will chair the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, to hold a hearing and a mark up on the bill.“At the same time we have to think strategically in this Congress,” Norton warned, mentioning the 60 votes needed in the Senate to move anything. “The second path will get D.C. closer to statehood by perfecting and improving the many outstanding sections of the Home Rule ACT that could easily pass in the Senate.”The Home Rule Act of 1973 gave D.C. residents and legislators more autonomy to self govern and pass laws and budgets. But according to Norton, Home Rule is still limited in scope. By tweaking the law, it could provide the District with more power to make and pass budgets and make laws effective immediately.Evanna Powell, a D.C. resident and ambassador for Statehood was on hand to show her support for a 51st state.“I am a citizen of the United states that does not have all the rights, privileges and immunities that are enumerated in the Constitution of the United States,” Powell said. “I want what I am entitled to as a citizen of the U.S.”Powell said she was enthusiastic about the bill’s chances to get passed, even with the current political affiliations of the Senate and President.“Hope springs eternal,” Powell said. “I believe it’s possible now if residents of the District step forward and do what is needed to make us the 51st state.”A representative from the Republican National Committee could not be reached for comment.last_img read more

first_img More information: Fox Armed Predator drone firing Hellfire missile. Image: Wikipedia. Citation: UT researchers show how easy it is to spoof unencrypted GPS signals used by drones (2012, June 27) retrieved 18 August 2019 from © 2012 Phys.Org This document is subject to copyright. Apart from any fair dealing for the purpose of private study or research, no part may be reproduced without the written permission. The content is provided for information purposes only. Explore further RQ-170 drone’s ambush facts spilled by Iranian engineer Up till now, the main concern regarding drones, other than privacy or moral issues, has been the knowledge that practically anyone can obtain a jamming device that prevents a drone from hearing GPS signals being sent by a satellite, thereby causing it to fly blind. Most such drones are programmed to land themselves if such an event occurs. Many believe this is exactly what happened last year when Iran claimed to have successfully brought down a US military drone flying over its airspace. Unfortunately, it appears, there is a far greater threat and it comes from spoofers, rather than jammers.Spoofers are devices that fool other devices into believing that it’s the device they are supposed to be communicating with. In the case of drones, a spoofing device can send out a signal that is stronger than the signal the drone receives from a satellite. By matching the signal, the spoofer is able to fool the drone into thinking it’s still getting its data from the satellite and thus becomes a trusted source. Once that occurs, those running the spoofing device can send commands to the drone causing it to behave as they indicate, ignoring those that come from other sources, in essence, allowing the drone to be hijacked by anyone with such a device. It should be noted that this is only possible with drones that use unencrypted GPS signaling, e.g. most non-military drones.Humphreys told the officials at the demo that all of his equipment together cost only about a thousand dollars to put together, meaning the technology is easily accessible by anyone wishing to take over a drone for purposes other than for demonstration. In such cases, drones could be made to crash into buildings, sporting stadiums, other planes or any other target they choose. Particularly troubling is the fact that the FAA has outlined a plan for allowing commercial drones to fly in the United States by 2015, most of which would be flying using unencrypted GPS signals.Humphreys and his team are hoping the demonstrations convince government officials to make changes to requirements on GPS signaling devices on drones before allowing them to fly in US air space. ( — Professor Todd Humphreys of the University of Texas is making a lot of people nervous. First he and his team demonstrated their ability to circumvent the signals a drone flying over the university stadium was using to plot its course, causing it to nearly crash into the ground, before suddenly saving it from certain destruction. And as if that wasn’t enough to make the point that drones flying using unencrypted GPS signals are vulnerable to spoofing, surely another demonstration he and his team gave for representatives of the Federal Aviation Administration and Department of Homeland Security drove the point home.

Banerjee also announced a financial support of Rs 10,000 to each Puja organiser in the state.She also urged the organisers to avoid “any outsider” wanting to fund their Puja with ulterior motives. “I would like to urge the organisers not to succumb to pressure if anyone wants to buy their Puja against a huge amount of money. It will lead to loss of their self-respect,” she said.

Representatives of Durga Puja organising committees were also present in the meeting, that was held at Netaji Indoor Stadium.Congratulating the Puja organisers for keeping up the tradition and culture of the state, Banerjee said: “With the support of the people from all communities the festival had passed peacefully, despite Bakri Eid and Durga Puja falling on the same dates for the past few years.” Also Read – Speeding Jaguar crashes into Mercedes car in Kolkata, 2 pedestrians killedShe repeatedly urged the Puja organisers not to lend their ears to any rumours and to contact police in case they find any rumour-monger. “Such problems never existed in the state earlier. Now, there is a political party that has no work other than creating differences among people. Last year, canards were spread through social media as only a day less was given for immersion of the idols. Rumours were also spread over promotion of government officials, which was fake,” Banerjee said, alleging that it was all done by the IT cell of the political party (BJP). Inspiring Durga Puja organisers to make preparations for Bengal’s biggest festival with enthusiasm, Banerjee said: “There are 3,000 Durga Pujas in Kolkata, while the number is 25,000 in the remaining parts of the state. Each of the organisers will be getting Rs 10,000. Kolkata Municipal Corporation (KMC) and the state Fire and Emergency Services department will look into the matter along with Kolkata Police, in the 144 wards of the corporation.Tourism department, Consumer Affairs department and West Bengal Police will take up the task for the remaining parts of the state. The total expenditure for the project will be Rs 28 crore.”Durga Puja organisers will be getting 20 to 23 percent rebate this year on the bill for consumption of power. At the same time, licence fees to civic bodies and fire department have also been waived.This year, the immersion will continue from October 19 to 22 and the Red Road Carnival will be held on October 23. 75 Puja organisers will be participating this year, in comparison to 55 in 2017.last_img read more

first_imgOut of Process Web Extensions in Firefox Nightly by Martin Brinkmann on July 11, 2017 in Firefox – 8 commentsFirefox Nightly users on Windows may configure the web browser to move Web Extensions to their own process in the most recent builds.Mozilla’s work on Firefox’s multi-process architecture continues. The organization rolled out the new architecture to Firefox Stable this year, and increased the number of multi-process content processes in the recently released Firefox 54 for some systems as well.The separation of Firefox core from websites and plugins improves stability of the browser, as crashes or slow downs that are caused by sites open in the browser won’t affect the core process anymore.Downside to this is an increase in RAM usage.Out of Process Web Extensions in Firefox NightlyFirefox users may flip a switch in the most recent Nightly versions of the web browser to move Web Extensions to their own process as well.This benefits browser stability and sandboxing as well, and it should improve the responsiveness of the main user interface further. All WebExtensions are moved to a single content process when the feature is enabled.  This means that they are less likely to crash or hang Firefox, and that security issues in WebExtensions are harder to exploit on top of that.Firefox Nightly users may enable out of process Web Extensions in Firefox in the following way:Load about:config?filter=extensions.webextensions.remote in the Firefox address bar. This should display the extensions.webextensions.remote on about:config directly.Double-click on the preference to set it to true.Restart the web browser.A value of true enables out of process WebExtensions in Firefox. You can undo the change at any time by setting the preference to false.When set to true, Firefox will use a content process for WebExtensions that are installed in the web browser. Note that this appears to be limited to WebExtensions; this means that legacy add-ons appear to still run in the main Firefox process.Firefox supports another preference that users may set to change the number of extension processes.Load about:config?filter=dom.ipc.processCount.extension in the Firefox address bar.The default value is 1. You can modify it by double-clicking on the value. Enter another value, e.g. 4 for four extension processes.Restart the browser.Note that the preference depends on extensions.webextensions.remote.Closing WordsMoving WebExtensions to their own content process improves Firefox in several significant ways. I’m not sure if the new feature applies to system add-ons that are WebExtensions as well, or if this is limited to user installed WebExtensions. If the former is the case, the move will benefit all users of the browser; if the latter is the case, only users who have installed WebExtensions will benefit from it.Now You: What’s your take on this?SummaryArticle NameOut of Process Web Extensions in Firefox NightlyDescriptionFirefox Nightly users on Windows may configure the web browser to move Web Extensions to their own process in the most recent builds.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more

first_img Top holiday drink recipes He said Australia would increase its annual “humanitarian intake” of refugees to 20,000 per year _ up from around 14,000 _ which he said was exceeded only by the United States.Human rights groups, however, have criticized the policy as discriminatory. It was announced last month and is reminiscent to one adopted by the previous conservative government. Human Rights Watch warned that asylum seekers arriving by boat could spend years in remote camps as their cases are processed. Those arriving by plane will still be screened in Australia.Thousands of asylum-seekers from countries including Afghanistan, Iran and Sri Lanka have attempted dangerous sea voyages from Indonesia to Australia and hundreds have died in the sea crossing over the past year. In late August, nearly 100 vanished in choppy seas off Indonesia after their overcrowded boat sank.Australia says the new policy will discourage new arrivals. “We believe this will send a powerful message,” Carr told a lunch of business people in New York.Carr was speaking in place of Prime Minister Julia Gillard who pulled out of the event because of an unspecified health problem. They are both in town for the annual gathering of world leaders for the U.N. General Assembly. Australia is lobbying for one of the rotating 10 non-permanent seats in the Security Council for 2013-2014.In his address, Carr gave an upbeat message about the Australian economy that escaped the worst of the global downturn, due in no small part to its natural resource exports to China.Carr played down the impact China’s current economic slowdown would have on its demand for Australian coal and iron. He noted growing demand for Australian natural gas from nations including Japan, South Korea and Malaysia.But he said in the years ahead, Asian economies would be looking less for raw materials than for goods and services to meet the demands of the continent’s fast-growing middle class.“We’ll need Asia-literate policies and Asia-capable people,” Carr said, adding that Australia must be ready to make and sell “the things that Chinese and Indian and Indonesian and Thai consumers are buying in 2033.”(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press.

Associated PressNEW YORK (AP) – Australia’s top diplomat on Monday defended a new, tougher policy on asylum seekers who emigrate to Australia from Asia’s poor countries and conflict zones, even as he laid out how his country could capitalize on the growth of the continent’s middle class.Foreign Minister Bob Carr said the plans to send asylum seekers to Papua New Guinea and the remote Pacific island of Nauru for screening was designed to deter human smuggling and would be more humane for the would-be refugees.
