Dermot Gallagher declares France penalty was wrong

first_imgFormer Premier League referee Dermot Gallagher has declared that the penalty VAR awarded to France was wrongly given during their 2018 World Cup final match against Croatia on Sunday.During the match, Referee Nestor Pitana had first missed Ivan Perisic’s handball inside the France box, but the official opted the award the spot-kick following a VAR review.Perisic’s view seemed to be blocked by Blaise Matuidi just before the ball struck the Inter Milan winger’s arm, and Gallagher has believed that it was “100% not a penalty”.Euro 2020Report: Euro 2020 qualifying Group H George Patchias – September 11, 2019 Euro 2020 qualifying Group H is being controlled by France and Turkey, but Iceland is still in with a shout.Reigning world champions France ran…“100% not a penalty.

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.

Eight charges for Dominican poachers due in court Tuesday

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 27 Jul 2015 – Held at gunpoint, 28 poachers were busted by TCI officers on Thursday afternoon in a collaboration between law enforcement and civilians which seemed to nab a group of Dominicans who had so far caught nearly 2,000 pounds of lobster, parrot fish and conch – illegally. Eight charges will be leveled against the men from the Dominican Republic tomorrow when they head to court, namely: Taking marine product without a license; taking marine product using breathing apparatus; possession of spear guns; taking marine product by use of a spear gun; use of unlicensed vessels; possession of egg-bearing lobster; possession of parrot fish; and possession of crawfish during the closed season. Magnetic Media is informed that this pilferage of TCI waters has been an on-going problem which eluded law enforcers. A civilian tip led to the red-handed capture; we understand that two boats got away…and still 14 illegal vessels were seized in the raid.

HTC Vive gives Firefox VR browser a boost

first_img Virtual Reality Firefox HTC Microsoft Mozilla CES 2019 Share your voice Post a comment Mobile Internetcenter_img 0 Tags Mozilla promotes VR sites and activities available with its Firefox Reality browser. Screenshot by Stephen Shankland/CNET HTC’s Vive virtual reality headset will include Firefox Reality, giving a boost to Mozilla’s web browser for VR devices and to its broader effort to build an immersive virtual realm on web technology that no single company controls.Mozilla released Firefox Reality in 2018 for the Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, Google Daydream and Magic Leap One. Now, HTC Vive owners won’t need to manually download the browser themselves, HTC and Mozilla said at CES 2019. Instead, Firefox Reality will be the Vive’s default browser.”By ensuring HTC devices have direct integration with a web browser, we make it easier for those creators and users,” Mozilla said Monday in a statement. Vive users can still use other browsers and change the default if they want. Mozilla declined to disclose terms of the partnership.Firefox once was second only to Microsoft’s Internet Explorer in terms of web usage, helping promote the idea that the web was a neutral foundation, not the domain of one powerful company. But over the last decade, Google’s Chrome grew to dominate browsing, and Mozilla’s browser has failed to gain a significant foothold on mobile devices.VR devices and their cousins for augmented reality offer Mozilla a chance to find a new foothold. But that’s only if VR devices catch on widely, which so far they haven’t.Mozilla also has been instrumental in developing technology called WebVR and its broader successor, WebXR, which standardizes the use of web technology to create VR and AR content. If that effort succeeds, it’ll be easier for developers to build software for multiple headsets and not have to recreate content separately for each one.”Through our exciting and innovative collaboration with Mozilla, we’re closing the gap in XR computing, empowering Vive users to get more content in their headset while enabling developers to quickly create content,” HTC Vive Vice President Michael Almeraris said in a statement.CES 2019: See all of CNET’s coverage of the year’s biggest tech show.CES schedule: It’s six days of jam-packed events.

Area 51 raid event to see them aliens removed by Facebook

first_img Sci-Tech Internet Over 2 million people signed up for the Facebook event. David Becker/Getty Images In July a tongue-in-cheek Facebook event was created to coordinate a raid on Area 51, the classified military base in Lincoln County, Nevada. It became an online sensation. Over 2 million Facebook users signed up, Jimmy Kimmel and Stephen Colbert gave it a spot on their respective talk shows, and the US Air Force strongly advised citizens against raiding the facility. But now, the Facebook event page has been taken down.It appears as though Facebook took the page down on Aug. 3 for violating community standards. Mathew Roberts, the event creator, posted a screenshot on his personal Facebook page of the notice Facebook had sent him saying it had taken down the event because it “went against” Facebook’s “Community Standards.””I never got any reason behind the event being removed,” Roberts told CNET. “I created a sister event which amassed about 15,000 people before being taken down for no reason.”After starting the Facebook event as a joke, Roberts is now planning an actual Area 51 festival in Nevada to take place Sept. 20, the day the facetious raid was to go down. He says he created another Facebook event, this time for the real festival that would take place somewhere that’s not a highly-classified military base, but this too was taken down by the social network. “I think it’s pretty reckless of Facebook, especially because I’m trying to direct people away from storming the base,” Roberts said. “And now I’ve lost my entire audience.” Roberts expects around 20,000 people to attend the festival. Facebook has been contacted for comment.The now-deleted Facebook event came with a brief description: “We will all meet up at the Area 51 Alien Center tourist attraction and coordinate our entry,” it read. “If we Naruto run, we can move faster than their bullets. Let’s see them aliens.””Naruto run” refers to the main character in the eponymous Naruto anime.The Facebook event created the Area 51 meme, which became a fixture on Twitter and Reddit throughout July. You can see some of our favourites below. Area 51 is a highly classified zone around 150 miles from Las Vegas, Nevada, a detachment of the famed Edwards Air Force Base. No one really knows what the base is used for, but it’s speculated to be a location for aircraft development, and as such Area 51 has become synonymous with alien conspiracies. The most popular involve alien spaceships or aliens themselves, all allegedly kept within the classified zone.The location reportedly received its name when, in 1951, the remains of the alleged Roswell UFO (said to have crashed in 1947) were brought to the base. In 2013, the CIA issued a 355-page declassified report detailing the birth of Area 51 and the U-2 spy planes developed and tested there.Originally published Aug. 5, 7:30 p.m. PT.
