Spalletti on Coppa Italia and Benevento

first_imgLuciano Spalletti has revealed his ambitions to win the Coppa Italia ahead of their clash with Benevento.Spalletti’s men may set up a quarter-final clash with Lazio if they end up beating the underdogs but the former Roma man has called for caution ahead of the tie.“As we saw last year, these games can hold hidden dangers, but the team is focused and learned from that experience,” the Coach told Inter TV and cited on Football Italia.“We have a stronger mentality now and will try to improve it further in this match. Benevento boss Cristian Bucchi has experience now and is very good at setting his team out, so his type of side can cause problems.“We also saw in Cup competitions in England and France that big clubs can be surprised by minnows. Benevento eliminated Udinese in order to get here, so in one-off matches, the gap between teams can be wiped out.”Romelu Lukaku, Serie A, Inter MilanCapello calls Lukaku “a modern striker” Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 The former Italian manager believes Romelu Lukaku is perfectly suited for Antonio Conte’s Internazionale Milan in the Serie A.Inter don’t have home advantage either, because it will be played behind closed doors due to repeated racist chanting from their fans.“It’ll seem a lot more like a training ground exercise, as without the crowd there, we lose the passion and emotional strength this sport gives you.“It was right to send a strong message, but also to reflect on what can be done, because we end up penalising people who have nothing to do with these incidents.”With Inter out of the Champions League in the group stage, can the Coppa Italia be their best chance of silverware?“It is certainly an objective. This is probably the simplest to achieve, because there are fewer games on the way to the Final. Big clubs take part and it’ll be tough, but a side like Inter must aim for victory.”last_img read more

See Neil Armstrongs Apollo 11 spacesuit all fixed up

first_imgNeil Armstrong wore this spacesuit on the Apollo 11 mission to the moon in 1969. National Air and Space Museum NASA isn’t the only space agency trying to land on the… NASA’s epic Apollo 11 mission to land humans on the moon launched on July 16, 1969. In preparation for the 50th anniversary celebrations, the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum in Washington, DC, went to work to conserve and preserve Neil Armstrong’s iconic Apollo 11 spacesuit. And it looks great.The museum unveiled the post-conservation spacesuit on Twitter on Wednesday. It will go back on display on July 16 for the first time in 13 years.

Robert Rodriguez/CNET The campaign pulled in over $700,000 (£530,000, AU$990,000) to pay for stabilizing the fragile suit, which required delicate fabric repair, stain removal, cleaning and preservation of fading materials and degraded plastic parts. The crowdfunding money also helped pay for a mannequin to wear the suit and a state-of-the-art climate-controlled display case. The suit will go on temporary display near the 1903 Wright Flyer before being moved to a permanent home in 2022 for a exhibition called Destination Moon.Armstrong’s suit kept him safe when he stepped foot on the moon. All these decades later, the Smithsonian was able to repay the favor and protect the spacesuit for posterity back here on Earth.

Tablet or Smartphone It Matters When Designing CloudBased Products

first_img This hands-on workshop will give you the tools to authentically connect with an increasingly skeptical online audience. Entrepreneurs are building cloud-based products for customers with an ever-growing list of ways to access those products. There’s the web browser, tablets, smartphones, phablets (which are still incredibly awkward), wearables, browser apps, plugins, bookmarklets, etc. Who knows what devices will deliver software products in five years (my money is on the computerized contact lens).The interesting part is that for any given piece of software, consumers are accessing it via different devices for different reasons. They’ll use the mobile phone app for a certain task while using the desktop for something else. Or they’ll use the tablet app for one thing, but the mobile phone app for another. These are the behaviors that must be understood to deliver a satisfying and delightful product experience. Entrepreneurs need to know which device customers are using to build appropriately.Related: The Man Behind Google Docs on Opportunities in the CloudThis “By Device-Action” concept is best illustrated with an example. At Kashoo, the company where I work, we build cloud accounting software for small business owners. As with most cloud-based applications, our customers can access Kashoo via web browser, a native iPad app and a native iPhone app. The typical Kashoo customer is what we consider the “new entrepreneur.” They’re not tied to a desk. They don’t work five eight-hour days. For better or for worse, the line between work and personal is blurry at best. Instead, they work from wherever, whenever, thanks to the devices that allow them to.Customer research and data analysis has showed us that our customers are doing specific accounting tasks on specific devices. For example, they’re using the iPhone app to quickly snap a picture of an expense receipt.That makes sense. Imagine someone at an airport food court opening up their laptop and holding a receipt in front of their webcam. No one would.Box is another great example. Typically, document generation happens on the desktop but once uploaded to Box, collaboration, access, editing, sharing and plenty more happens most often via mobile devices. Box understands this product use by device-action and thus builds accordingly.Extracting trends from your app analytics will help you understand how your customers are accessing the product and what specific tasks the doing. When the product is in its infancy, without a significant dataset, ask your current and potential customers what they might use your tablet app for versus what they’d use your smartphone app for. Have them tell you what they’d expect to get out of the desktop app. You’ll likely be surprised by their responses and you’ll have a better idea of how to build.Related: Could Nebula One Reinvent Cloud Computing for Businesses?

Sugar operating system A new OS to enhance GPU acceleration security in

first_imgResearchers at the University of California, Irvine presented Sugar (Secure GPU Acceleration), a new OS solution to enhance the security of GPU acceleration for web apps. Their research paper titled, Sugar: Secure GPU Acceleration in Web Browsers, is a collective effort of Zhihao Yao et al. Recently, GPU based graphics acceleration in web apps has become increasingly popular. WebGL is the key component which provides OpenGL–such as graphics for web apps and is currently used in 53% of the top-100 websites. However, several attack vendors have been demonstrated through WebGL making it vulnerable to security attacks. One such example is the Rowhammer attack which took place in May, this year. Although web browsers have patched the vulnerabilities and have added new runtime security checks, the systems are still vulnerable to zero-day vulnerability exploits, especially given the large size of the Trusted Computing Base of the graphics plane. Sugar OS uses a dedicated virtual graphics plane for a web app by leveraging modern GPU virtualization solutions. It enhances the system security since a virtual graphics plane is fully isolated from the rest of the system. Despite GPU virtualization overhead, Sugar achieves high performance. Unlike current systems, Sugar uses two underlying physical GPUs, when available, to co-render the User Interface (UI), One GPU, to provide virtual graphics planes for web apps The other one to provide the primary graphics plane for the rest of the system. Thus, this design not only provides strong security guarantees but also provides enhanced performance isolation. The two GPU designs in Sugar OS for secured web apps The researchers presented two different designs of Sugar in their paper; a single-GPU and a dual-GPU. In both these designs, web apps use the virtual graphics planes created by the virtualizable GPU. The main difference between the two is the primary graphics plane. Single-GPU Design target: They designed a Single-GPU Sugar for machines with a single virtualizable GPU. The main targets of this design are commodity desktops and laptops using Intel processors that incorporate a virtualizable integrated GPU (all Intel Core processors starting from the 4th generation, i.e., Haswell [99]). Primary Graphics plane, in this design, uses the same underlying virtualizable GPU but has exclusive access to the display connected to it. Dual-GPU Design target: The dual-GPU Sugar is designed for machines with two physical GPUs, one of which is virtualizable. The main targets for this design are high-end desktops and laptops that incorporate a second GPU in addition to the virtualizable integrated Intel GPU. Primary graphics plane, here, uses the other GPU, which is connected to the display. However, Dual-GPU Sugar provides better security than single-GPU Sugar, especially against Denial-of-Service attacks. Moreover, dual-GPU Sugar achieves better graphics performance isolation. The researchers demonstrated that Sugar reduces the Trusted Computing Base (TCB) exposed to web apps and thus eliminates various vulnerabilities already reported in the WebGL framework. They also showed that Sugar’s performance is high, providing similar user-visible performance with existing less secure systems.

A new low for nofrills flying easyJet assigns backless seat to passenger

first_imgTags: easyJet, Funny Wednesday, August 7, 2019 LUTON, ENGLAND — Hello, welcome to easyJet. Would you like a window seat, aisle seat, or a backless one?Sounds odd, we know, but for one woman a seat without a back was her only option on a recent easyJet flight from Luton to Geneva.In a photo uploaded to Twitter by fellow passenger Matthew Harris, the unidentified woman is seen sitting onboard the plane in an aisle seat that was completely missing a back. In his tweet, Harris wrote: “#easyjet beats @Ryanair to have backless seats. This is flight 2021 Luton to Geneva. How can this be allowed.”#easyjet beats @Ryanair to have backless seats. @IATA @EASA this is flight 2021 Luton to Geneva. How can this be allowed. @GeneveAeroport @easyJet_press @easyJet pic.twitter.com/EthMoWRR8P— Matthew Harris (@mattiasharris) August 6, 2019The airline responded to his tweet, thanking Harris for bringing the situation to their attention. It then asked Harris to remove the photograph and direct-message them before they investigate further.More news:  Help Princess Cruises break the world record for largest vow renewal at seaHarris refused to take down the photo, replying with: “One has to wonder how safe the rest of the plane was. This was her seat. The lady was moved to a spare seat once the flight was fully boarded. Not sure what would have happened if the flight was full.”Hi Matthew, thanks for bringing this to our attention, before we can investigate this could I ask you to remove the photograph & then DM us more info regarding this, so we can best assist you. Ross https://t.co/Qq2zhBAizh— easyJet (@easyJet) August 6, 2019In a follow-up tweet, easyJet assured passengers that despite what the photo may suggest, its main focus is safety.“Be assured safety is our highest priority and passengers would have never been allowed to fly in these seats as they were inoperative. If the flight had been full then two passengers would have been offered an alternate flight as they would not have been permitted to travel in these seats,” tweeted the airline.More news:  Virgin Voyages de-activates Quebec accounts at FirstMates agent portaleasyJet further clarified in a statement reported by Mashable that the woman was not “permitted” to sit in the seat as it was waiting for repairs.So, we guess they’re chalking it up to one big mix-up?

Academy Reserves Match SAINTS TV

first_imgJosh Simm scored the opener on the last tackle as Ryan Horne spotted a gap down the short side jumping out of dummy half. He fed it to Sam Royle who made enough of a break to feed Simm who stepped inside the full back to stride under the sticks.From the restart the Saints marched down field again attacking the Thunder down the right on the last. This time a sharp cut-out pass under pressure from fullback Harvey McDaid put Tom Nisbett away. He took it to the full back before feeding captain Royle to go in for the second try.The Thunder had a glorious chance to reply, but knocked on over the line before opening their account with a try from dummy half through Oliver Gowing.Saints extended their lead on the half hour through a Jake Wingfield try. A last tackle grubber from Horne was taken in goal and a great kick chase from the Saints meant the full back remained there.Man of the Match Lewis Dodd went through the line fed it inside to Kye Siyani who in turn fed Wingfield to go under the posts after juggling with the ball.But the thunder scored twice in the final five minutes of the half to go in only two points behind thanks to tries from Jack Allen and Thomas Wilcox.Saints Head Coach Traynor brought Harry Brooks off the bench to stiffen up the middle and boy did he do so with the Thunder finding it much harder to go forward.A good run from his own line by Harvey McDaid coupled with drives from Jamie Pye and yet another from powerhouse winger John Hutchings put the Saints deep into Thunder territory.On the last the ball found its way to the impressive Dodd whose weaving run towards the centre of the field gave him the chance to step through a chink of a gap before taking on and beating the full back to the side of the posts.His fourth conversion gave the Saints an eight point cushion, but on the hour mark several Thunder offloads culminated in a try down the left before the game was finally made safe with two tries in a five minute period.On the last a fabulous grubber from Wingfield was grasped out of the air by Dodd again to score his second of the game under the posts. Dodd then showed his class, carving out an opportunity for Simm to put the game to bed.A pass from Siyani was swept up by Dodd who side-stepped inside three would be tacklers before committing the full back, getting a whack for his troubles, in the process of putting Simm away. With Dodd receiving treatment Simm converted.There was just time at the end for the hosts to score a last gasp consolation try but Saints were home and dry.Next up, a tasty derby vs Wigan Warriors at Robin Park Arena on Saturday, 2pm kick off.Newcastle Thunder U19’s:Team: Anthony Dyne; Jack Allen, Isaac Nokes, Sean Croston, Callum Piert; Fergus Simpson, Thomas Wilcox; Rory Nettleton (C), Oliver Gowing, James McGurk, Nathan Clemmitt, Malik Steele, Lewis Howe.Interchanges: Mark Roberts, Tyler Walton, Cai Ellis, George Robinson .Tries: Oliver Gowing (23), Jack Allen (35), Thomas Wilcox (38), George Robinson (59), Isaac Nokes (78).Goals: Anthony Dyne 2 from 5.Saints U19’s Team:Team: Harvey McDaid; Tom Nisbett, Josh Simm, Jumah Sambou, John Hutchings; Ryan Horne, Lewis Dodd; Jamie Pye, Keenan McDaid, Warren Smith, Lewis Baxter, Sam Royle (C), Jake Wingfield.Interchanges: Joe Sharratt, Harry Brooks, Zac Lee, Kye Siyani.Tries: Josh Simm (6 & 72), Sam Royle (9), Jake Wingfield (28), Lewis Dodd (52 & 67).Goals: Lewis Dodd 5 from 5, Josh Simm 1 from 1.HT: 16-18FT: 24-36last_img read more
