Ohio State womens basketball wins season opener

For the 17th consecutive year, the Ohio State women’s basketball team opened its season with a victory as the Buckeyes knocked off Tennessee State, 78-51, Sunday at the Schottenstein Center. Ten players scored for the Buckeyes, with senior guard Samantha Prahalis and junior guard Tayler Hill leading the way with 17 points each. Freshman forward Kalpana Beach, in her first-ever game for OSU, contributed 10 points and six rebounds. Beach said she found out just before the game that she was starting. “I knew it was going to be a lot different than high school,” Beach said. “So I just was going to go out and play as hard as I could and try not to make too many mistakes.” “(Beach) was nervous before the game,” Hill said with a smile following the victory. OSU surged out to a 48-21 halftime lead, holding TSU to 30 percent shooting in the first half and not allowing any second-chance or fast-break points. The Tigers kept pace with the Buckeyes during the second half with both teams notching 30 points. Coach Jim Foster attributed the drop in production in the second half to inconsistent offensive play. “I thought we started the game very aggressively,” Foster said. “I think it’s difficult to play 12 people and continue with continuity on offense. I think that’s probably what showed in the second half.” With Prahalis as the lone senior to go along with three juniors on the roster, OSU is the youngest team in the Big Ten, according to NCAA data. Foster said the early games in the season are vital in the development of the younger players. “I think one of the things that a young team needs to learn is that when you come in at halftime and sit down you’ve got to continue to be engaged when you go out there for the second half, regardless of what the score is,” Foster said. For the game, the Buckeyes shot 48 percent from the field to go along with a 23-for-29 clip from the free-throw line. OSU held a decisive advantage in free-throw attempts, with TSU only generating nine attempts from the line. OSU suffered a bit of a scare late in the second half when Prahalis, voted co-Big Ten Preseason Player of the Year by the conference’s coaches, was helped off the court by trainers when she fell and cramped up. Prahalis returned to action a few minutes later to finish the contest and assured reporters following the game that she was fine. The Buckeyes take to the Schottenstein Center court again to play Temple at 6 p.m. on Friday. OSU defeated the Owls, 84-75, on the road last season. read more

Bank Holiday Monday forecast to be hottest in 19 years with highs

This Bank Holiday Monday could be the hottest for almost two decades, with temperature expected to reach 27 degrees in south east England – warmer than the French Riviera, Southern Spain and Morocco.It is also likely to be the hottest early May Bank Holiday Monday since 1999, when 23.6C was reached on the 3rd of May 1999.However the record, when 28.6C was recorded in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire on May 1, 1995 , is unlikely to be beaten this year.The Met Office said the warm weather will be caused by an area of high pressure which is due to dominate southern Britain over the coming week.A spokesperson told The Telegraph: “It’s a warm sunny day for most of England and Wales, plenty of sunshine. It’ll widely be mid-twenties and a little cooler elsewhere but still pleasant and warm. It may be 22 degrees in the North West. Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Kepler le chasseur dexoplanètes est paralysé par un problème technique

first_imgKepler : le “chasseur d’exoplanètes” est paralysé par un problème techniqueMercredi, la NASA a annoncé que le télescope spatial américain Kepler connaissait un sérieux problème technique. Après 4 ans de bons et loyaux services la mission de 600 millions de dollars va-t-elle prendre fin ? Pour le moment, l’agence spatiale reste confiante.Alors qu’une nouvelle exoplanète nommée “planète d’Einstein” vient d’être découverte notamment grâce à Kepler, la NASA a annoncé une bien mauvaise nouvelle. Le télescope spatial américain ne fonctionnerait plus, paralysé par un sérieux problème technique. En effet, l’engin connaitrait un dysfonctionnement au niveau du mécanisme lui permettant habituellement de se tourner dans une direction donnée de la voûte céleste (dans la constellation du Cygne et de la Lyre, sa fenêtre d’observation). Ce problème a ainsi obligé la NASA à mettre le télescope “en mode de sécurité” afin de s’assurer que ses panneaux solaires font face au Soleil pour recharger les batteries et continuer à communiquer avec la Terre, a expliqué John Grunsfeld, le responsable de la division science de l’agence spatiale américaine. Cela fait en réalité une semaine que les ingénieurs de l’Agence spatiale ont constaté que le gyroscope de Kepler ne répondait plus à leurs commandes. La chose s’était déjà produite en juillet dernier avec un autre gyroscope de Kepler qui a cessé de fonctionner. “Initialement, il est apparu que les trois roues répondaient et que la rotation avait pu être stoppée avec succès”, mais la quatrième roue elle n’a pas montré une réponse normale. “C’est une indication claire qu’il y a eu une défaillance interne dans la réaction de la roue, probablement une défaillance structurelle du support de la roue”, explique la NASA dans un communiqué publié sur son site.Des tentatives de réparation Or, “malheureusement Kepler n’est pas à un endroit où l’on peut envoyer des astronautes” pour le réparer, souligne M. Grunfeld, [et les ingénieurs] “examinent les données très soigneusement [ … ] pour voir s’il est possible de reprendre les activités scientifiques du télescope”. Néanmoins, John Grunsfeld reste confiant, déclarant que “nous ne sommes pas encore prêts à déclarer la fin de Kepler”. D’autant plus que celui-ci semble stable et continue d’user normalement de son carburant.”Parce que le mode de sécurité est un nouveau mode pour l’engin, l’équipe surveillera étroitement Kepler, mais aucune autre action immédiate n’est prévue. Nous passerons les prochains jours et semaines pour évaluer nos options et développer des nouveaux produits de commande. Ces options incluent probablement des étapes pour essayer de retrouver la fonctionnalité de la roue et d’examiner l’utilité d’un mode hybride, utilisant à la fois les roues et les propulseurs”, précise la NASA. 2.740 exoplanètes potentielles découvertesÀ lire aussiDes chercheurs auraient découvert l’origine de la mystérieuse lumière verte observée par la NASAPour l’heure, aucune décision n’a cependant été prise quant à la suite des opérations et l’avenir du télescope dont la mission a jusqu’ici été “à tout égard un succès”, souligne John Grunsfeld. Rappelons que cette mission consiste à sonder l’espace à la recherche d’exoplanètes, Kepler étant le premier télescope spatial dédié à la recherche de planètes jumelles de la Terre dans d’autres systèmes solaires. Depuis son lancement en 2009, il a ainsi déjà détecté 2.740 exoplanètes potentielles dont 122 ont été à ce jour confirmées à l’aide d’autres télescopes et équipements.Le 16 mai 2013 à 12:40 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Billy Jack Haynes files 42page lawsuit against WWE

first_imgFacebook Google+ Former WWE star Billy Jack Haynes (who spent time in WWE from 1986-1988) has filed 42-page lawsuit against WWE in federal court this week claiming “egregious mistreatment of its wrestlers for its own benefit, as well as its concealment and denial of medical research and evidence concerning traumatic brain injuries suffered by WWE wrestlers.”Portland attorneys Steve D. Larson and Joshua L. Ross of the firm Stoll Stoll Bernie Lokting & Schlachter issued the following statement about the lawsuit by Haynes.“Under the guise of providing ‘entertainment,’ WWE has, for decades, subjected its wrestlers to extreme physical brutality that it knew, or should have known, caused long-term irreversible bodily damage, including brain damage. For most of its history, WWE has engaged in a campaign of misinformation and deception to prevent its wrestlers from understanding the true nature and consequences of the injuries they have sustained. WWE’s representations, actions, and inactions have caused its wrestlers to suffer from death, long-term debilitating injuries, lost profits, premature retirement, medical expenses, and other losses as alleged herein.”Portland Tribune: Billy Jack Haynes wrestles WWE into federal court Adam Martin RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR WWE responds to lawsuit filed by Billy Jack Haynes Pinterestcenter_img Update on lawsuit against WWE and Paul “Big Show” Wight Twitter Update on the lawsuit against WWE and Big Show WhatsApplast_img read more

Houston Will Have 11 Cooling Centers During The Hot Summer Months

first_imgPhoto captured from Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner’s Twitter feed / @SylvesterTurnerMayor Sylvester Turner talks about the importance of staying cool and hydrated during the hot summer months in Houston during a press conference held on June 15, 2018.Reliant, in collaboration with the City of Houston, is rolling out for the 13th year the “Beat the Heat” initiative, which will provide 16 cooling centers across Texas, the majority of them in Houston.Houston will specifically have 11 cooling centers, which are free of charge and will be located at all of the Multi-Service Centers managed by the City. They will feature air-conditioned spaces, bottled water, light snacks and entertainment and will be operative until the end of September.During a press conference held at the West End Multi-Service Center, Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner acknowledged there are Houstonians who have to work outdoors during the hot summer months, for example because they are construction workers, and noted: “I want to remind those who do work, play or exercise outdoors to stay hydrated and if you must go outside don’t do it during the hottest part of the day.”We should all remain alert to heat advisories. This summer let us all keep an eye on each other, especially our seniors and those without airconditioners. Thank you @reliantenergy for being a great corporate partner. Visit our 11 cooling centers throughout Houston. #beattheheat pic.twitter.com/IvkDm1a8mY— Sylvester Turner (@SylvesterTurner) June 15, 2018Turner also touched on the serious risks of leaving children, senior citizens or pets unattended in vehicles because of the high temperatures they quickly reach and, therefore, the health risks –including death— they can be exposed to. “Every summer we say this, but I cannot say it enough: Let’s not leave children or senior citizens or pets in vehicles unattended,” the Mayor underscored.As part of the initiatives being implemented this summer to help the community deal with the high summer temperatures, the Harris County Area Agency on Aging will distribute portable air conditioning units and the City’s Health Department will distribute portable power stations. Those interested in receiving a unit should call 832-393-4301.For a complete list of the cooling centers that are part of the “Beat the Heat” initiative in Texas (including Corpus Christi and Dallas), click here.Press Conference: 13th annual @nrgenergy and @HoustonHealth #BeatTheHeat Summer Kickoff is https://t.co/U3dOIhlcuq— Sylvester Turner (@SylvesterTurner) June 15, 2018 Sharelast_img read more

Bromium sets up business net around malware Update

The only headaches inherent in Bromium’s product might beset rival security companies that do business in anti-virus software and data protection. Ian Pratt, Bromium co-founder, said, “Traditional security products rely on being able to look at any document in advance and decide whether it contains malicious code which can be identified by `signatures’ already reported…. Yes, a bit like after the horse has bolted.” Malware can take ugly leap forward to virtual machines Citation: Bromium sets up business net around malware (Update) (2012, September 19) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2012-09-bromium-net-business-malware.html Bromium’s software product is called vSentry, and the technology approach rests on a micro-virtual machine—an isolated environment— that protects the underlying operating system and whatever content is stored on the machine from malware. The microVM isolates attacks, trapping malware and analyzing it so that IT staff can explore it further without interruption to employee computer users. According to its designers, a PC user at a company would not be aware that it is installed. The machine tracks employee use of the web. All the data from a website visit is contained. vSentry places each document into this virtual machine. If someone clicks a bad link, the micro-VM will keep it until the IT administrator views and disposes of it. The virus cannot escape from the safety shield of this environment to enter the actual computer. The company’s target is the enterprise customer, because that is where the opportunity lies for the virtual machine approach. vSentry is licensed per-user, enterprise wide, and priced according to volume. Security teams may have ample expertise but they cannot actively block attacks they never saw before. The vSentry appeal is not just that employees can be free to work without fear of bringing up viruses, but that the information captured for the dashboard provides information on the malware attempts. The company says that the information via vSentry’s “Live Attack Visualization and Analysis” (LAVA) feature delivers information about the attack’s origin, techniques, and targets.Rather than reducing the need for a security team, the product gives them more power to work on security protection for the business with better success. Bromium says its LAVA delivers high malware detection rates. Micro-VM analysis can look at forms of attack that include rootkits and bootkits and generate signatures for otherwise undetectable attacks. The idea is that an enterprise security team can in turn update security mechanisms or fortify defenses of specific attack targets. The drawback is that the product only works on Windows. Platform requirements in full are given as Intel i3, i5, i7 processor; 4 GB RAM; Windows 7 64-bit. It does not run on Macs and it does not run on ARM architectures.center_img More information: Credit: Bromium This document is subject to copyright.

Nonetheless, the company co-founders have told reporters that in time wider support is in the works including versions for Windows 8 and Mac OSX. This week’s product announcement had some sites voicing superlatives, implying the software can do a lot to mitigate the business angst and costs of computer malware.last_img

Does psychology have a conflictofinterest problem

first_imgGeneration Z has made Jean Twenge a lot of money. As a psychologist at San Diego State University in California, she studies people born after the mid-1990s, the YouTube-obsessed group that spends much of its time on Instagram, Snapchat and other social-media platforms. Thanks to smartphones and sharing apps, Generation Z has grown up to be more narcissistic, anxious and depressed than older cohorts, she argues. Twenge calls them the ‘iGen’ generation, a name she says she coined. And in 2010, she started a business, iGen Consulting, “to advise companies and organizations on generational differences based on her expertise and research on the topic”. Twenge has “spoken at several large corporations including PepsiCo, McGraw-Hill, nGenera, Nielsen Media, and Bain Consulting”, one of her websites notes. She delivers anything from 20-minute briefings to half-day workshops, and is also available to speak to parents’ groups, non-profit organizations and educational establishments. In e-mail exchanges, she declined to say how much she earns from her advisory work, but fees for star psychologists can easily reach tens of thousands of dollars for a single speech, and possibly much more, several experts told Nature. Twenge’s academic papers don’t mention her paid speeches and consulting. Yet that stands in stark contrast to the conflict-of-interest (COI) guidelines issued by the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE), an influential organization whose standards have been widely adopted by many medical and some psychology journals. Those guidelines say that such ‘personal fees’ should be declared as potential COIs in research papers because readers should be made aware of any financial interests that they might perceive as potentially influencing the findings.center_img Twenge is not a lone outlier; an analysis for this article found that several well-known academic psychologists do paid speeches and consultancy work and don’t declare them in their research papers. Many editors and psychologists say that this is fine and is standard behaviour. They argue that this kind of income should not count as a COI and that psychology should not be held to the norms of medical science. “Speaking fees and consultancies would not be obvious conflicts of interest, unlike, say, evaluating a drug produced by a company in which one holds stock, since there would not seem to be incentives aligned with making one claim versus another,” says Steven Pinker, a well-known author and psychologist at Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts, who can also be booked for speaking engagements.

Expedia eyes to double Japanese hotels listing by 2020

first_imgAs Japan is gearing up for 2020 Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics, online travel platform Expedia aims to double its hotel listing in the country. Mark Okerstrom, CEO of Expedia has confirmed that the online travel company is aiming to double Japanese hotels listings on its website to 22,000.Okerstrom also highlighted that the company could also offer to all the Japanese hotel operators artificial intelligence and machine learning capabilities to suggest ways that hotels can make their products more attractive to customers, such as pricing recommendations.Okerstrom said that Japanese hotels could use a new service called Rev+ launched last year that uses real-time customer demand data and competitive pricing information to help hotels set prices more flexibly.Expedia currently operates in over 75 countries and a gross booking of nearly USD 90 billion handled last year, the top executive sees a growing business opportunity in Japan.The world’s third-largest economy has seen record levels of foreign visitors in recent years. The government is seeking to increase the number of inbound tourists from over 28 million in 2017 to 40 million in 2020 when the Tokyo Games will be held.Okerstrom said that they will increase the focus for market expansion. He said wants to help more local governments in Japan promote their tourist attractions and drive more international travellers into Japan not only to Tokyo, Osaka, Kyoto but to other regions. In a country like Japan, they ensure that they have the full breadths of all travel products, airlines, hotels, car rentals, alternative accommodation.In April, Expedia signed an agreement to promote tourism with Hyogo Prefecture in western Japan and is looking for more partners, Okerstrom said. Expedia will continue to invest in research and development for the voice-controlled personal assistant, virtual reality and artificial intelligence technology to offer more customised travel services, the CEO said.last_img read more
