Schmeichel Pogba hasnt won a war at Man United

first_imgManchester United great Peter Schmeichel insists Paul Pogba mustn’t be allowed to think he’s bigger than the club and backed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to extract the Frenchman’s full potentialAfter being left out of Mourinho’s final game in charge of United in their 3-1 defeat to Liverpool, Pogba was restored to the starting line-up for Solskjaer’s debut at Cardiff City.The World Cup winner responded with an incisive display that saw him provide two assists as United stormed to a convincing 5-1 win.But Schmeichel cautioned United against allowing Pogba to think he’s bigger than them.“Mourinho did put himself in the limelight, not in the correct way or the way that you want the United manager to be,” Schmeichel told BBC Radio 5 Live.“There were stories about the manager being at war with certain players. That’s happened many times, but the club has always been able to deal with that in the dressing room.“I want to see Pogba being a United player as good as everything else he does in life.“He’s absolutely brilliant on social media, and he’s projecting himself to be this incredibly important player.“We’ve seen it at Juventus, we’ve seen it with France, we haven’t seen it with Manchester United and what’s really important here is that no player, regardless of how much money they make, how much they’ve been bought for, has ever been bigger than the club or the manager.Victor Wanyama, Tottenham Hotspur, Premier LeaguePochettino admits Wanyama remains in his Spurs plans Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Kenyan international, Victor Wanyama, was the protagonist of a summer transfer saga, but in the end, he is set to stay at Tottenham Hotspur.“This has been now portrayed like Pogba has won a war, this doesn’t work for me, that cannot happen for United.“It’s now really important that the club deal with this situation. Pogba, or any other player, cannot be bigger than the club.”Night, Reds ❤️ #MUFC pic.twitter.com/dXl0HGR3FD— Manchester United (@ManUtd) December 22, 2018However, the former Danish goalkeeper expects old United team-mate Solskjaer to be the man to get Pogba to perform to his expected levels.“Ole is definitely a different personality and a different direction,” Schmeichel added.“He’s stuck to the tradition and the history of the club, and respected it all the way, and had a great run as reserve coach for the club, and this is significant, because he was dealing with players like Pogba and Jesse Lingard, and these players that seem to be the players that Mourinho had problems with.“I think this is key, and the brief that Ole has got is to tame that situation, make someone like Pogba play to the potential that we know already that he has got.”last_img read more

Facebook pages get facelift with new page layout design

first_img Comment Facebook 1 Facebook’s layout has shifted from three columns to two and removed a lot of clutter. Screenshot by Steven Musil/CNET If you think your Facebook page looks a bit different today, you’re not alone.The social networking giant appears to have rolled out a new page design on Tuesday, eschewing the previous three-column layout for one that incorporates only two. On the right is static information about the page, while the left side contains the feed of recent posts.Facebook tinkers with its design from time to time, but this is a pretty radical departure from the site’s previous appearance. In addition to the column change, the content on pages appears less cluttered, with plenty of eye-appealing white space and an increased emphasis on thumbnail images. It wasn’t immediately clear how widespread this rollout is or how different types of pages will see a face-lift.  Facebook didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.

The trial is set to begin later this year. ITN: What are the clinical questions that you hope Core 320 will answer?Dr. Rybicki: Core 320 is designed to evaluate CT in a new way. CT, in the heart, gives morphology data…anatomy and coronary imaging. It has pretty good spatial resolution and pretty good temporal resolution, and of course, it’s noninvasive. In many cases at the end of the CT scan, there are still several unanswered questions. The major hypothesis of Core 320 is that the perfusion data provides added information to morphology. ITN: Do you have an expectation going into the Core 320 on how CT will perfusion will stack up against SPECT and catheter angiography? Dr. Rybicki: Everyone that is involved in this has high expectations. Everyone in the community is pulling for a CT system, like a wide area detector system, to do good functional imaging and do good perfusion. rk. Having all those expectations is wonderful, but you really have to roll up your sleeves in terms of proving it. You can do all you want in a small, single-center study, but the proof will be in a multi-centered and multi-national evalution. ITN: You’ve had experience with the Aquilion ONE. Most clinicians are impressed with the spatial and temporal resolution. What has been your experience with the perfusion component?Dr. Rybicki: The perfusion component is still in evaluation. The perfusion images I’ve seen to date are very good technical quality, but perfusion CT is still not a clinical tool. It has to be emphasized that using any scanner, including theAquilion ONE for perfusion and relying on the presence or absence of a perfusionabnormality is in the realm of clinical research . The AquilionONE makes greatmorpholic images, gives good radiation levels and it can be a used for widevariety of things. We suspect there are good things to come. ITN: What still needs to be worked on or corrected with CT perfusion? Dr. Rybicki: It is hard to say because CT is so new and both modalities are attacking perfusion from different angles. In SPECT, we introduce a radioisotope that goes to the heart, then radiation is emitted from the heart out and detected by a detector system. CT is totally different. You’re putting the radiation outsidethrough and then detecting on a system. ITN: With CTA vs. catheter angiography, you measure the positive and negative predictive values. How do you measure CT perfusion’s performance versus SPECT? Dr. Rybicki: One way it to partition the heart muscle CT and SPECT images into segments, and then analyze each on a segment-by-segment basis. There is also a so called “bullseye” or polar map to do this kind of image analysis. These maps are also used by some imagers for diagnosesPatients with severe disease can be managed with catheter-based intervention or surgery. SPECT is currently a key tool to separate patients. Perfusion is one piece of the puzzle used to make that distinction. If perfusion imaging, SPECT and perhaps CT in the future, suggests that there is significant myocardium that poorly perfused by viable, this is very valuable information for revascularization management. On the flip side, if the patient has a large perfusion deficit and all the tissue is dead, a large, expensive, and potentailly dangerous surgical intervention is not needed. For quite some time people have been searching for one modality that can perform these functions, and we hope that 320-detector row CT is a large incremental step in this direction.ITN: If CT with perfusion performs well in this trial, could it be expanded to target a greater patient population rather than just low- to medium- risk patients?Dr. Rybicki: It’s unlikely that one test can do everything for all patients. Any vendor would like to be able to cover a great number of the patient population. The coronary CT part is still going to be limited by calcium. That’s not going to go away with the 320. I suspect that [CT with perfusion] will still be suited for low and intermediate risk patients.ITN: Even with the 320, heavily calcified arteries still present imaging problems for CT?Dr. Rybicki: Absolutely. That’s not going to change. One thing that would be really nice is that if you have an artery that is calcifed with multiple low-grade lesions, having a normal perfusion CT, if it were to validate that, would be very useful.

But death by backboard had probably never seemed like a possibility until last Thursday. Harlem Globetrotter William “Bill” Bullard almost suffered that fate at an event in Tegucigalpa. The renowned U.S. exhibition team was carrying out one of its trademark, theatrical slam dunks when the backboard support gave way during Bullard’s high-flying dunk. No related posts. Bullard hung on to the rim as the structure crashed down on top of him, and shattered glass across the court. The backboard popped him in the forehead, leaving a bloody gash. But besides that Bullard appeared unharmed. The Honduran periodical El Heraldo reported that Bullard remained motionless for a few minutes on the court while teammates and officials attended to him. The medical staff brought out a stretcher, but Bullard never needed it.Fortunately, he seemed to be a good sport about the incident. Bullard gave a thumbs up to the crowd as he walked off the court with a towel covering the wound on his head. Honduran basketball fans gave him an admiring ovation. After getting bandaged up, Bullard returned to salute the crowd. He greeted fans in their stands and signed autographs. Meanwhile, without a replacement hoop, the Globetrotters completed their act with a half-court game on the one basket still standing.The Globetrotters were in Honduras as part of a Central America tour. They wrapped up the leg with games in Costa Rica and El Salvador over the weekend.Matt Levin is a correspondent for The Tico Times Facebook Commentslast_img read more

Costa Ricas Tobías Bolaños International Airport to reopen nighttime service

first_imgStarting on Dec. 1, Costa Rica’sTobías Bolaños International Airport in Pavas, west of San José, will operate from 6-9 p.m. after night hours were suspended in October.As a cost-cutting measure, the terminal had been closed from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m., which helped save ₡180 million ($334,000) a year, the Civil Aviation Authority (DGAC) reported.The reopening will not affect the agency’s budget because pilots will not be assisted by airport flight operators whose schedules at the control tower end at 6 p.m. Instead, pilots will be able to take off and land with the assistance of operators from the Public Security Ministry’s Air Surveillance Service, who currently work at the terminal year-round, the DGAC reported in a news release Monday.Ministry staff will assist pilots and will be responsible for operating the runway’s lighting system, the DGAC stated. “Operators will use a radio frequency and procedures that were successfully tested last week,” the agency said.The DGAC stated that the move aims to promote Costa Rica’s tourism sector.

This is why the majority of the mobile app development companies are looking for integrating AI into their apps and handing this amazing technology into users hands.By integrating AI into mobile apps, phones will start to perform advanced technology functions like face recognition, barcode scanning, landmark recognition, text recognition, and image labeling. Here are some of the ways to incorporate AI into apps.Integrating AI in Mobile App Development ProcessSearch Process OptimizationWith integration AI into the search engine, the searching process would be more engaging, less troublesome, and quite easy. The spelling corrections, perform suggestions, and voice search are added with AI to the search process. This feature has more or less became a priority for the developers as the majority of apps have this and yours need one too for staying still in the competition.Learn Behavior PatternsOne of the most popular and common ways of integrating artificial intelligence into the mobile application is inserting algorithms that can analyze user behavior and patterns. The feature will not only study the user behavior but also provide suggestions as per the search and likes for ultimate user satisfaction. The customer experience with the app will be enriched by offering them personalized services and products. It would be of extreme importance for the sales and hence eCommerce apps and websites would prefer to use it.Intelligent Digital AssistantPlenty of users these days don’t feel like typing long sentences or let’s put it this way, they just hate typing. With AI and digital assistant, users can just speak and get their things done with their mobile device. Also, the customers in need of customer service no longer like to make calls or wait on hold or wait for hours to get their query resolved.The entire customer service process is transferred online with the help of AI. With AI, the customers can get access to the information they are looking for at any point of time without having any actual person to answer. Digital assistant like chatbots are implemented at every top company and the user is definitely in the support of it.App SecurityThe rate of cybercrimes is hyping with each passing day. The safety and security of the apps are placed at the highest priority and AI can be a very effective solution to this. AI provides an authentication process which is fast and highly secure. AI can also be conjoined with several recognition types to clear user identification and authentication. So, if you are a mobile app development agency looking to develop an eCommerce app or any app with sensitive user data, or apps involving payments.Utilize DataArtificial intelligence as technology would require a bulk of data to function everywhere it is integrated. The efficiency of this feature highly depends on its ability to analyze and process the data, current and future trends, user behavior, market pattern, app efficiency, clients condition, and several such things. This is why AI is considered to be of utmost importance in the finance sector.Why Should You Implement AI in the Apps :Undoubtedly AI is one of the most trending technologies ruling the app industry.

4 Considerations For Businesses Implementing Remote Working

first_img4 Considerations For Businesses Implementing Remote Working If you would like to have your company featured in the Irish Tech News Business Showcase, get in contact with us at Simon@IrishTechNews.ie or on Twitter: @SimonCocking By Shauna MoranThe working office environment is evolving.  Our dependence on a physical office to effectively do desk-based jobs and manage a team of people is rapidly decreasing. Remote working is increasingly being adopted by businesses across the globe and individuals desire to work in a more flexible way is rising.  Businesses are forced to rethink ‘office-based’ practises as they transition into a more digitised and diverse economy. But what does that mean for organisations that choose to adopt a new virtual collaboration strategy?Many leading multi-national organisations and SMB businesses have successfully implemented remote working over recent years. One of the major benefits of hiring remotely is the ability to hire the best candidate without location hindering the decision making process. Hiring remotely can also decrease the cost of infrastructures, such as costly office spaces or salary costs that bigger cities often demand.Research suggests that remote workers are in fact more productive and happier in comparison to their office-based counterpoints. With teams based in various locations, it’s much easier for businesses to expand internationally and reach a wider target audience by taking advantage of location-specific growth opportunities that might not have been available to them if they have one central location.Change is inevitable, especially in business, and developing new work-based practices around a distributed team brings a unique set of challenges and considerations. If remote structures fail to accommodate and support individuals and leaders effectively , it can negatively impact every aspect of the business and seriously harm the bottom line.As an expert in helping businesses scale their remote operations I’ve identified 4 primary considerations for any business modifying their office-based working policy in favour of a more flexible or fully remote-working structure.4 Considerations For Businesses Implementing Remote WorkingManaging Remote TeamsRemote working requires clear structures and processes tailored and catered to each department. It’s the responsibility of the leadership team to work with employees to define and implement structures around virtual management, technologies and methodological skills.The leadership team must strike a balance between their roles and responsibilities, effective leadership styles, and emotional intelligence according to the situation, individual and desired outcome. I’d recommend business to start by analysing how they have effectively managed teams in office-based environments, and explore ways to effectively translate that into a remote environment.A great tip I suggest is to set the correct expectations amongst teams and departments. For example, what do you expect from each member of your team on a daily, weekly and monthly basis. Leadership teams should clearly define and communicate the added responsibilities for each employee in a distributed team.I recommend that leadership explore the ways in which they can inspire, create visions, foster enthusiasm and take care of team energy levels on the remote team as well as the most effective ways to manage by principle instead of policy, helping team members focus on important issues and deliver expected results.Communication & Virtual CollaborationWhen it comes to team communication you need to challenge any assumptions you have about what information is ‘nice to know’ versus ‘need to know’.Before deciding if you need to communicate certain information with your team, put yourself in the position of your team – what is their level of understanding about the project, the team, or the organisation and does this information affect them?Communication is fundamental to remote working success. Failing to communicate and engage effectively can hinder projects, reduce employee engagement and lead to miscommunication. There are numerous communication and collaboration tools specifically designed for remote teams. The trick  is finding the right technology for the right purpose, and ensuring communication guidelines are clearly articulated and understood by each team member.Email, for example, is often useful for communicating facts, but not for delivering some of the meaning associated with those facts, in which case a video call might be more appropriate. Ensuring that individual ‘time-zones’ are taken into consideration as a critical success factor in successful collaboration and exploring the best methods and processes which allow teams to communicate synchronously (real-time) & asynchronously (delayed-time).I’d recommend businesses start by looking at what, when and how information needs to be shared both on a team and individual level. Recording & sharing important video meetings for team members based outside of the standard time-zones and having a place where all relevant project updates can be seen by all are all effective ways in building effective workflows.Employee Engagement & CultureBusinesses must implement employee engagement and culture strategies specifically tailored to individuals who don’t come into an office every day. businesses need systems in place that help them review how they manage and increase engagement for both existing and new employee.They shouldn’t rule-out opportunities for remote teams to meet in person frequently and should consider the benefits of in-person interactions and team-building activities.Social time or ‘water-cooler’ moments that would naturally happen in an office environment can be easily tailored to suit remote teams, but it requires a proactive approach and a team that is willing to engage in a new way of building more purposeful working relationships. Some of the most culture rich teams I’ve worked with have setup social time on a Friday afternoon on video calls, which replaces the traditional ‘after-work get together’.I recommend businesses look at the important ways in which they build culture in an office and translate that as best they can in a remote team. It’s about redefining our new social norms and adapting the ways in which we build relationships and trust.TechnologyTechnology is at the core of effective remote operations, as this provides the main way of communicating with the team. There are many aspects to technology when considering remote working, such as a virtual private network (VPN) and mobile device management, as well as the security and connectivity for each worker.Technology is also responsible for enhancing a teams ability to complete the project. This makes it increasingly important for businesses to provide a high-quality and highly functioning technology stack  designed to meet the needs of the team.Remote specific technology has improved considerably in recent years; video conferencing technology has evolved support virtual meetings, which means there’s a much more unobstructed view of the recipients face, chest and arms, and is often a preferred  alternative to in-person or face-to-face meetings. In terms of selecting the right technology, I recommend that businesses focus on the requirements of each department and select and trial a handful of technologies as opposed to adding too manage options, which leads to misunderstandings and too much noise.Regardless of what tools are used, businesses should consider how they control the use of technology, takes care of necessary tools and infrastructure needed to perform daily operations and focus on sharing data and enabling fluent communication.There’s no doubt that remote working presents significant growth opportunities for individuals, businesses and the economy. However, in order to have the greatest chance at success, it’s crucial that right processes and structure are implemented to reduce key challenges associated with distributed teams and get the best ROI from a virtual workforce.The most successful remote businesses I’ve worked with have invested time and resources into developing a remote strategy that’s unique to their values, teams and growth strategy and understand that in doing so, they are investing in their most valuable stakeholders, their employees.[Shauna’s Bio]Shauna is the founder of Operate Remote and is a qualified business and executive coach & consultant that specialises in remote working.

Temple holds Saraswathie Prayers

first_imgWebsiteWebsiteWebsite WebsiteWebsiteWebsite WebsiteWebsiteWebsite The Hindu Thirukootam & Shree Ganaser Temple held their Saraswathie Prayer at the temple recently.  On the first three days of Navarathri, ‘Mother’ is invoked as the powerful force called ‘Durga’ in order to destroy all our impurities, vices and defects.Over the next three days, Mother is adored as a giver of spiritual wealth in the form of Luxmi, who is considered to bestow on her devotees inexhaustible wealth.The final three days are spent worshipping Mother as the Goddess of Wisdom, Saraswathie.In order to have all-round success in life, we need the blessing of all three aspects of the Divine Mother. The Sanskrit word ‘Sara’ means ‘essence’, and ‘swa’ means ‘self’.Thus Saraswati means the essence of the self. Mother Saraswati is the divine consort of Lord Brama, who is the Creator of the Universe. Since knowledge is necessary for creation, Saraswati symbolises the creative power of Brahma.Goddess Saraswathi is worshipped by all persons interested in knowledge, especially students, teachers, scholars and scientists.However, a caution is that Her blessing alone will not get one to pass an exam – there must be hard work as well by the individual.The Hindu Thirukootam & Shree Ganaser Temple celebrated this Poojay with students playing musical instruments, a classical dance item and a speech by Dr Balkaran from the Department of Education.The Devi Homam was also performed and all devotees were given the ‘Saraswathie’ string to tie around their wrists.Supper was later served.last_img read more

first_imgZUJI creates brighter possibilities for under-privileged students in SingaporeToday, ZUJI Singapore, the region’s leading online travel agent, announced a partnership with The Straits Times School Pocket Money Fund (SPMF) and MasterCard to provide resources and experiences for Singapore’s under-privileged kids. As one of the richest countries in the world, it’s easy to forget that there are children from low-income families. ZUJI understands the impact that a disadvantaged home can have on a child’s future possibilities. This collaboration supports the ZUJI belief that every child – regardless of background – deserves a strong start in life and a dream holiday.The partnership, which falls within the ZUJI ‘A Lot Like Love’ campaign, taps into the growing desire to give back to the less fortunate. SPMF was selected as an ideal partner given its worthwhile cause of helping children get the right start – whether it be ensuring they have enough money for a proper breakfast or to sustain their day in school, or easing the family’s financial burden in providing for their children’s education and school needs.Chua Hui Wan, CEO for ZUJI Singapore shared the reasons behind the collaboration, “At ZUJI, we believe that opportunities should not be hampered by background or financial burdens. All children deserve the right to experience special events and see unique places. The joy of travel is for everyone, and through this partnership with MasterCard and SPMF, we hope to create bright and worldly possibilities for students in need.”Assisting SPMF in their mission, ZUJI will donate $0.50 for every new Facebook like on ZUJI Singapore’s Facebook Page from today until 1 November, and $2.50 for every booking made with a MasterCard during selected periods.Continuing the support on a more personal level, ZUJI and MasterCard will be spreading the fairy tale spirit to over 40 SPMF beneficiaries by treating them to the Beauty and the Beast musical at Marina Bay Sands MasterCard Theatres. The kids will also enjoy an exclusive meet-and-greet with the theatre characters after the production, getting the opportunity to ask questions and mingle with the stars.Extending the outreach to the beneficiaries and their families, come November, ZUJI will celebrate the joy of travel by surprising two low-income families from SPMF, who have not had the resources to go overseas, with all-expense paid holidays.“It is truly wonderful to experience the culture and sights of a foreign country, and it is even better when you relish it with your family. We want to give these two families the gift of travel without any financial worry. We hope the experience will not only be something that will stay with them for years to come, but open their eyes to a different worldly perspective and be a continuous inspiration for brighter future possibilities,” said Ms. Chua.Nagesh Devata, Senior Vice President for MasterCard, Asia Pacific Acceptance and Merchant Development shared his thoughts on the partnership and initiatives, “MasterCard is delighted to be partnering with SPMF and ZUJI to provide the trip of a lifetime to families that can’t otherwise afford to travel. The experience will allow families to take a break from everyday pressures and share priceless moments that will be remembered for years to come,”.Source = ZUJIlast_img read more

Agriculture minister promises action over water shortages

first_imgAgriculture Minister Costas Kadis said on Monday that new measures to tackle long-term drought should be introduced in September including more desalination plants and possibly a solar desalination unit.During a visit at the Famagusta district to discuss with the farmers the problems they are facing with water shortages, Kadis said that the installation of a solar desalination unit by an Austrian company was possible.He said that feedback from farmers was very important.“We want to be directly involved in the challenges they face and, through dialogue, to find the most appropriate solutions to the problems they face,” Kadis said.The main focus was water, he said, and how to best handle to the continued drought.He said that an Austrian company has expressed interest in installing new technology for the production of desalinated water with the use of solar energy.Another option, he said, is offering the possibility for groups of farmers install their own units.“All these are under the microscope of the government,” he said, adding that they want to shape these decisions in cooperation with farmers. There will be announcements on the matter, possibly within September, he said.Another issue of concern is lack of agricultural workers and he said he would discuss this matter with other ministries concerned.According to the general secretary of farmers group Panagrotikos, Tasos Yiapanis, the tour of Kadis in the area aimed at seeing “with his own eyes” the problems farmers faced.“The issue of water is the second national issue after the invasion,” Yiapanis said, expressing hope that the tour would help in the ministry taking measures that would offer substantive help to farmers.You May LikeBuzznFunThe 20 Most Beautiful Airports in the WorldBuzznFunUndoBlitzLiftCommon Beliefs That Have Been Debunked By ScienceBlitzLiftUndoflights50offThe Tool to Find Flights 50% Off is Finally Here!flights50offUndo House rejects presidential veto over repossession lawUndoModi versus Wild: Indian PM to join Bear Grylls in wildernessUndoLimassol police investigating attempted murderUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

Project aims to raise awareness of lionfish to defend against it

first_imgMaking Cyprus the first line of defence against the invasion of lionfish into the Mediterranean is the aim of the Relionmed-Life project, its officials said this week.The project was presented as one among a variety supported by the department of the environment. The department is the national contact point for such projects and aims to empower them, offering free support to applicants, before, during and after they are running a project.Among other measures to get rid of the invasive species, which threatens to eat other species, the organisers, the Life Cyclamen project team, suggest the exploration of small local market niches which would make removal of the fish economically sustainable.Though the fish has a venomous sting, it can be eaten, and one idea is to include it in restaurant menus and get fishermen to catch it for this purpose.Another idea is to make jewellery and other items from the beautifully-coloured fish.As a start, the risks associated with the invasion of the fish need to be assessed, and stakeholders will be informed.More than 400 lionfish will be collected during the project via coordinated removal competitions and surveillance system-guided expeditions.It is especially important to prioritise removal from areas such as the Natura 2000 and marine protected areas.“It is anticipated that by the end of the project most active divers – at least 100 – and their networks will contribute to the surveillance and removal of lionfish, while more than 300 other stakeholders such as fishermen and NGOs will become aware of the issue,” the team announced.They hope to develop mechanisms in Cyprus so the country can act effectively against the invasion and build knowledge from which other countries in the region can benefit.Partners in the project are the University of Cyprus, the University of Plymouth, Marine & Environmental Research (MER) Lab Ltd, the Envalia Nature Research Centre and the department of fisheries and marine research.The lionfish is known for its venomous fin rays. The potency of its venom makes it an excellent predator and hazardous to fishermen and divers.In addition to being a danger to humans, the lionfish is a strong predator, feeding on smaller fish and invertebrates and can cause large reductions in other species of the Mediterranean, resulting in significant ecological and socio-economic impacts. The species started to invade areas around Cyprus in 2016 and is rapidly growing.To learn more about the Life Cyclamen project visit www.lifecyclamen.com.cyYou May LikeYahoo SearchThe Early Signs Of Type 2 Diabetes.
