MS Dhoni tutors Rajasthan Royals players after leading CSK to thrilling win

first_imgMahendra Singh Dhoni had calmed down after Chennai Super Kings’ win on Thursday night and was seen mingling with a few Rajasthan Royals players after the match. Dhoni was livid just moments before the match ended as in the final over a no-ball controversy erupted and the Super Kings captain lost his cool.Dhoni had stormed on to the field after Ben Stokes delivered a waist-high full toss in the fourth ball of the final over. The umpire at the non-striker’s end immediately raised his arm signalling a no-ball but umpire Bruce Oxenford at square let, said it was a legal delivery.Chennai Super Kings at the time needed 6 runs from 2 balls. On-field batsmen Ravindra Jadeja and Mitchell Santner immediately got into an argument with the umpires while MS Dhoni, who had got out in the third ball of that over, charged onto the field from the CSK dugout and was involved in a heated argument with the umpires.WATCH: What happened there?https://t.co/QgrjBWBPDv #RRvCSK pic.twitter.com/4VYFQbuoV3IndianPremierLeague (@IPL) April 12, 2019Dhoni was fined 50 per cent of his match fees for his outburst after the game which the Super Kings eventually managed to win by 4 wickets to consolidate their position at the top of the table. It was also Dhoni’s 100th IPL win as captain, he is the first ever skipper to achieve the feat.With six wins from seven matches and 12 points in their kitty, Chennai Super Kings are very close to qualifying for the playoffs.advertisementDhoni was adjudged man-of-the-match and was seen speaking to a few of the Rajasthan Royals players after the post-match presentation.Pure class during match.

Province Opposed to Efficiency Rate Increases

first_imgThe provincial government is opposed to an application for energy efficiency rate increases for residential electricity customers, filed today, Nov. 14, with the Nova Scotia Utility and Review Board. The Department of Energy will write to the board to express its opposition to Efficiency Nova Scotia’s proposed increase of .135 cents per kilowatt hour. Efficiency Nova Scotia estimates this cost to be about $11 per year for the average residential customer. “While we recognize that energy efficiency efforts help reduce electricity costs for consumers, Nova Scotia residential rate payers should not have to bear these costs,” said Energy Minister Andrew Younger. “We will be writing to the board to express our displeasure with rate increases for residential customers.” Mr. Younger said government remains fully committed to removing the efficiency tax from electricity bills. “We are beginning our efforts to introduce more competition to the electricity market this winter and will be consulting broadly on the energy market, including energy efficiency programs, next year,” said Mr. Younger.last_img read more


Fords office denies ordering staff to stop using term climate change online

first_imgTORONTO – Emails from Ontario civil servants asking staff to stop using the term “climate change” on government social media accounts were based on false information, Premier Doug Ford’s office said Friday.Several internal emails published on a Toronto blog said Ford’s office had directed workers at the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry as well as Ontario Parks to not use the term online.A spokeswoman for Ford said the premier’s office has never issued such a directive to anyone in government.“The premier’s office has never given direction to anyone in the government not to use the term climate change on social media,” Laryssa Waler said in a statement. “To say otherwise is 100 per cent false.”In a memo to civil servants Friday, three of the province’s top bureaucrats said the government has launched an investigation into the matter and taken immediate action to correct the inaccuracy.“Integrity, accuracy, professionalism and the highest possible ethical standards are core principles of our work,” the memo said. “In order to ensure greater trust and integrity within the system, an internal audit is already underway to strengthen our security procedures.”Federal Environment Minister Catherine McKenna, who has clashed with Ford over the cancellation of cap and trade, had earlier tweeted that his government appeared to be “muzzling” staff with the order.“After Ontarians & Cdns have experienced extreme weather linked to climate change — extreme heat, forest fires, flooding — the Ontario gov’t appears to be muzzling @OntarioParks by banning words ‘climate change’,” she wrote on social media. “Time to focus on climate action. We have a plan. Ontario has no plan.”Green Party Leader Mike Schreiner wrote the province’s Environment Minister Rod Phillips asking him to clear the air on the controversy.“I am asking you to please clarify what has transpired and to state unequivocally that all public servants and political staff within your ministry and all government ministries and departments are permitted to speak about climate change,” he said.In a reply to Schreiner, Phillips calls the emails “a mistake” and says the province takes its commitment to fight climate change seriously.“We understand the importance of taking steps to ensure we protect our environment,” he said. “We care a great deal about the environment and remain committed to take action to encourage lower emissions.”Phillips has promised that a new provincial plan to address climate change will be unveiled this fall.last_img read more


Renard Morocco Should Play Argentina Like It Did Against Portugal Spain

Rabat – The head coach of Morocco’s national football team, Herve Renard, has discussed all the recent developments regarding his Atlas Lions. Renard also spoke about the future and Morocco’s friendly game against Argentina this month. “We are going to have to do the same things as we did against Portugal and Spain at the 2018 World Cup,” said Renard in an interview with CAFOnline. Renard is expecting his Atlas Lions to give the same performances they did during the 2018 World Cup. In the group stage of the World Cup, the Moroccan team played two decisive games against Spain and Portugal.Read Also: 2019 CAN: Egypt, Senegal Are Renard’s Favorites to Win Moroccans showed determination and high spirit during the two games, even after their unexpected defeat in the first game of the 2018 World Cup against Iran.“If we are at our level, we can compete. While knowing that they have an alien named Lionel Messi who makes everything change. It is an exceptional match in a career and for Morocco. I am sure the players will all be motivated,” the coach said.Renard also talked about Moroccan-Dutch footballer Oussama Idrissi, who recently announced his decision to represent Morocco instead of the Netherlands.“My greatest satisfaction is to have met a very professional player during our last internship. I was impressed by his rigour and his sense of collective spirit,” said Renard of Idrissi.He added that Idrissi’s decision was “very good news.”“It is up to him to impose himself now,” Renard added.Speaking about the Morocco-Malawi qualifier game for the Africa Cup of Nations (CAN), Renard said that the game will be an opportunity for field time for “some players who have not worn the national team jersey much.”He added that the game might be also an opportunity to “collect points for the FIFA ranking. It is always difficult to play in Malawi.”The Atlas Lions have already qualified for the continental championship. However, the latest monthly FIFA ranking showed Morocco losing three places, now sitting at 43rd place out of all national football teams, with 1,440 points.Renard still would not bet on Morocco winning CAN 2019.“By showing humility, it’s very difficult to win a CAN and I know what I’m talking about. Statistically, football lovers know that Egypt is a great country.” Renard previously won CAN in 2012 when he was coaching the Zambian national team.He added that he would rather “not be a braggart for Morocco but make the opponents fall on the field.”Renard also expressed gratitude for receiving the Confederation of African Football Coach of the Year Award.“It’s an honor because it is the third time I’ve won it since 2008.” read more


Loonie at 5 12year low as oil declines greenback strengthens on retail

TORONTO – The Canadian dollar closed at a 5 1/2-year low Thursday amid declining prices for oil and gold and a greenback that strengthened following a solid U.S. retail sales report.The loonie slipped 0.36 of a cent to 86.75 cents US.U.S. retail sales perked up in November with the start of the holiday shopping season, rising 0.7 per cent, led by online buying and purchases of autos, clothing and electronics.Oil prices fell below US$60 to a fresh five-year low on top of a $3 slide Wednesday after OPEC cut its forecast for global demand for the cartel’s oil. On Thursday, the January crude contract on the New York Mercantile Exchange dropped 99 cents to US$59.95 a barrel.Metal prices were mixed with February gold bullion down $3.80 to US$1,225.60 an ounce while March copper edged up three cents at US$2.92 a pound.The Canadian dollar has moved steadily lower in recent weeks as traders try to assess the damage that will be caused to the Canadian economy by oil prices that have fallen about 40 per cent since the summer. The fall has been sparked by lower demand prospects and an over-abundance of crude oil, thanks in large part to surging shale production in the U.S. and a refusal by OPEC to cut production to support prices.“Oil prices reached fresh lows . . . in a relentless drop, which will weigh on domestic growth,” said Camilla Sutton, chief FX strategist, managing director, Scotiabank Global Banking and Markets.“Canadian equities continue to underperform, warning that there is likely domestic and foreign selling, and therefore selling of the Canadian dollar.”Sutton added in a commentary that she expects weakness in the Canadian dollar to carry on into 2015.Also pressuring the loonie are questions about whether economic weakness due to falling oil will see the Bank of Canada putting off rate hikes even further. Economists have been looking for the bank to move late next year.

Google holds back Honeycomb source code indefinitely

first_imgYesterday, Google revealed that they will be delaying the publication of the source code to their latest version of the Android operating system (3.0, codenamed Honeycomb) indefinitely… and it’s a move that is prompting a lot of questions about how committed Google really is to open software.When Google first announced Android as an alternative to Apple’s new iOS mobile operating system, they painted Android in sharp relief against Apple’s “walled garden” approach: Android would avoid a “draconian future” in which one company controlled the mobile industry by keeping Android open, releasing the source code to developers and allowing users to download and install any programs from any source that they want.Needless to say, this hasn’t panned out, and today, it’s hard to even get the most up-to-date version of Android onto your handset if your carrier isn’t willing to allow it, let alone install any programs you want on any device you want. However, Google has continued to publish the source code for Android, allowing anyone who wants to to take a look at the inner workings of the OS. Now even that’s gone. According to Google’s Andy Rubin, it’s not permanent: the issue is that Honeycomb isn’t ready for mass consumption, and that Google cut corners to get Honeycomb onto tablets. They say they don’t even know if Honeycomb would run on a phone.This groks with Google’s claims that Honeycomb is, for now, a tablet-only OS, while Gingerbread is for smartphones. It’s also worth noting that Apple also forked its tablet and smartphone variants of iOS up until iOS 4.1, which was released last September.Even so, Google holding back the Android source code means that consumers owning Android tablets continue to be at the whim of manufacturers. If the Honeycomb source code were available, users might be able to bake their own versions of Honeycomb that would run on older devices — the Galaxy Tab, for example, or the Nook Color.Read more at Business Weeklast_img read more


Algorithm will tweet in your place after you die

first_imgAssuming that _LivesOn is real and it does launch in March as the company says it will, it is hard to take seriously. First of all, it would be extremely difficult for any algorithm to replicate a person’s interests and preferences. Will it track events in real-time, weighted towards your location, while understanding your tastes in media, favorite sports teams, and the websites you are most likely to discover? It’s more likely that a simple algorithm can understand when and how frequently you tweeted and build from there. Maybe it could tweet the most popular articles from a site you liked on a given day, or retweet the most-retweeted tweet from someone who you followed, but anything past that is pushing current technology.Of course, the question becomes, who would use a service like this appeal to? Likely only the most narcissistic of people, right? After all, if our nasty, brutish, and short lives teach us anything, it’s that we are not unique snowflakes. But if you are that self-centered, would you believe a box full of chips and cables would be able to replicate your tweets? Seems doubtful. And even then, what if your followers preferred the algorithms tweets to your own? Who could make their peace with that thought in mind? I guess we’ll see in March. Are you unable to imagine a world without your restaurant recommendations, complaints about local establishments, and humble brags about your jog times? Have no fear because a new service called _LivesOn aims to solve that problem. After you die, the service’s algorithm will analyze your tweets and start tweeting like you so that your friends, family, and followers will forever be comforted with your unique brand of Twitter commentary.The company only has a placeholder site up so far, but it does tell us that its “A.I.” will be able to analyze a Twitter feed and can use it to understand your “likes, tastes, [and] syntax.” Based on that information, it will be able to, ostensibly, follow current news, events, and trends, and then tweet like you would be tweeting had you not, unfortunately, stopped living.Before you pass on you’ll be able to test out your _LivesOn feed and judge how close the posts are to your tweets and how much you like your new, computer-generated personality. After the feed is adjusted it seems like — we’re still waiting on details — you’ll hibernate the account. Then, after you die, your executor will be able to manage your account.The company’s site doesn’t mention this, but it seems like the Twitter handle for your posthumous account could be [YourTwitterHandle]_LivesOn, which, if true, is rather unsettling. That said, given the company’s slogan — “When your heart stops beating, you’ll keep tweeting.” — the DeadPerson’sName_LivesOn joke is right on cue.In actuality, the whole thing seems like a joke, something formulated to upset a few columnists and possibly promote a not-very-good movie. Prank or not, the service has been getting some information-free mainstream media attention, though even they noted that _LivesOn is being built by a “London-based advertising agency.”@jondarren ha ha! thanks man, see you in the afterlife!— LivesOn (@_Liveson) February 13, 2013last_img read more


Small Publishers and Marketing Services

first_imgFor some publishers, acquiring their way into marketing services (in March, Penton bought online marketing firm EyeTraffic Media) may be the best option. Referencing the development of Meredith Integrated Marketing, Tom Stein, president and founder of b-to-b agency Stein Rogan + Partners, said it was based on six acquisitions and that former Meredith National Media group president Jack Griffin told him, “If we decided to do this in-house, we’d still be just talking about it.” However, most smaller publishers don’t have the war chest for six marketing acquisitions (or spending $350 million on a digital agency the way Hearst did for iCrossing). For them, entering marketing services requires a mix of in-house development and strategic partnering. Last week, Northstar Travel Media announced a marketing solutions division based around two internal staffers (a VP of marketing solutions in former TravelAge West publisher Michelle Rosenberg and a dedicated project manager), and a strategic tech partner in Decision Counsel to execute programs. American Business Media’s annual meeting this year took a single theme approach, focusing on the opportunity for b-to-b publishers to offer marketing services. While the core of marketing services is based on many things publishers already offer (content, data, lead gen), it’s also a different business with longer sales cycles, potentially lower margins, and a different sales and editorial mentality. It’s the latest example of publishers “chasing new money in a hurry,” according to Mitch Rouda, president of e-media at Farm Journal Media. Stage 1: Status quo—no projects. Customers should be addressed with best practices and industry trends. Stage 2: Discovery—the customer knows they need a project but isn’t sure what to do. Here, white papers and Webinars are applicable. Stage 3: Vendor selection. Here Summit presents customer testimonials, assessment tools in which prospects can enter data and increasing use of video. “For our market, they want to see the machines in action, says Newcorn. Stage 4: Short list. Vendor comparison charts. “Here, they need something downloadable,” says Newcorn. “A chart indicates they’re pretty far down the path. A boardroom PowerPoint is something junior execs can show to more senior, maybe less tech savvy execs.” The Summit proposal package includes a kick-off meeting with the content creators, written analysis and recommendations and a 12-month road map. “Now that we have the infrastructure to produce custom packages, now we have to look at how we sell it,” says Newcorn. Summit Media also debuted a new dedicated custom media group (“custom” is increasingly becoming a dirty word that marketing can’t relate too—hence the rise of “marketing solutions.”) with seven full-time people and multiple freelancers. “What’s interesting is [clients] want our expertise as content producers, not our audience,” said Dave Newcorn, vice president of digital and custom media. center_img Many of the services now falling under the umbrella of “marketing solutions” have previously been offered as value-added. “We need to change the nature of free with things like copywriting, consulting, white papers and surveys,” says Newcorn. “We charged one client $7,500 to put together a survey and send it. In any other kind of work, that’s consulting.” Summit came up with a price calculator that deducts hard costs but also incentivizes salespeople to sell high. Part of getting the new custom group off the ground was a “lunch & learn” campaign in which Newcorn and his group visited 108 customers in 15 cities, explaining the concept of lead nurturing. The publisher also did research identifying four stages of the buying process and what solutions to offer. They include:last_img read more

Qantas profit plunges downward but stays in black

first_imgQantas said it remained cautious today after reporting a $58 million profit after tax in the first financial half of the year, a fraction of the $210 million achieved a year earlier and has opted not to pay out a dividend this year.This result comes after sales dropped 14% down to $6.9 billion for the July to December period.Speaking to reporters this morning, Qantas chief executive Alan Joyce said the carrier’s performance was good given the state of the economy.He said domestic leisure demand remained strong but admitted that the global downturn significantly affected international premium traffic.“While international yields are improving, they are expected to continue to lag behind the recovery of the domestic market in the short to medium term” Joyce attributed the slower recovery in the international market to a lagging U.S. and U.K. market and increased competition on the Pacific route from V Australia and Delta, which have hiked capacity up by 30 percent.The carrier’s profits continued to be boosted by its low cost subsidiary Jetstar and its Frequent Flyer loyalty program which formed an alliance with Woolworths Group last year.Qantas said it would not pay a dividend due to the unprecedented and challenging operating environment.Aircraft to cut down on premium seating Qantas also announced it would invest $400 million to upgrade seats and in-flight entertainment on 9 Boeing 747-400 aircraft and reconfigure its A380 fleet.The Boeing aircraft will feature the carrier’s fully flat Skybed sleeper seats and state-of-the-art on-demand Panasonic inflight entertainment in all classes. They will also be stripped of all first class cabins and replaced by business seats.Joyce said the reconfiguration would see Qantas’s A380s pare down on first and business class seating and provide more premium economy and economy seats to meet slower demand.However, he stressed that the decrease in first class seats did not mean Qantas was pulling back from its premium business.Rather it was to align the A380 offering with forecast demand which is expected to be down by 40 percent, Joyce told reporters.Upgrades and reconfigurations to the aircraft will start from the end of 2011, with completion scheduled in 2013.
