Jose de Jesus Rodriguez leads Nova Scotia Open thanks to ace

first_imgHALIFAX, Nova Scotia — Mexico’s Jose de Jesus Rodriguez had a hole-in-one and another eagle Thursday in the Tour’s Nova Scotia Open en route to an 8-under 63 and a two-stroke lead. Rodriguez holed a 9-iron from 166 yards on No. 5, and made a 30-yard chip for eagle on the par-5 17th. ”I hit it very good and I had a lot of opportunities,” Rodriguez said. ”In the last tournament I hit it very good, but I didn’t make the putts. Today, I made the putts.” David Skinns, James Sacheck and Aaron Goldberg shot 65, and Canadian Adam Hadwin, the Chile Classic winner in March, was another stroke back along with Henrik Norlander. Hadwin had a bogey-free round. ”I didn’t struggle all day,” he said. ”I burned a few edges and had tap-ins for pars.”last_img

Torres wants Champions League glory

first_imgFernando Torres has revealed that he would rather win the Champions League than the Premier League this term to add to Liverpool’s impressive European heritage.The Spanish striker knows that the Premier League title is an ambition of many at the club, but he wants continental success after winning the European Championships with Spain last summer.Liverpool face Chelsea in the Champions League in midweek after maintaining the pressure on Manchester United in the title race at the weekend.“Domestic titles are very important but to win the Champions League you are saying we are the best team in Europe,” he told Liverpool’s offical website.“This club has a great record in the European Cup but now I want to be a part of that history.“Winning the European Championship was a great thing for me and I understood what it was to win a major trophy and what I had been missing. “On the way home from the European Championship I made a promise that I wanted more of this success with Liverpool and it does not come any bigger than the European Cup.”Torres is delighted that Steven Gerrard has signed a new deal at Liverpool and believes that the credit that he is being given this season is thoroughly deserved.“Stevie has been getting a lot of praise from some of the best players in the world,” he continued.“That is quite right because I think he is the best in the world. He is a great team player but he can also win a game on his own when maybe we are not playing so well.“I would love to see him have a lot more success. I cannot think of a player I would rather be playing with. “We know it is not going to be easy against Chelsea on Wednesday but both Stevie and I are happy with our form.”Source: Goal.comlast_img read more

Suanna wins Jaa Memorial trophy

first_imgKhao Kheow caddies pose with Tara Court Golf organizers at the conclusion of the 5th annual Jaa Memorial Cup.Tuesday, August 22, Khao Kheow – Jaa Memorial CupToday the Tara Court Golf Society helped organized the 5th annual Jaa Memorial Cup here at Khao Kheow Country Club.  This is held in memory of the late Jaa who was a very well liked and respected caddy here and who unfortunately died at the very young age of 26 years from a mosquito bite from which she contracted dengue fever.This is a very special competition which is confined to the caddies only, most of whom would have been very good friends of Jaa and all of whom very much want to get their names on the much coveted trophy.  The competition is co-organised and run mainly by the management and staff here and we want to thank them very much for all the work and effort they put in to it.The Cup is awarded to the best gross score and once again for the fifth year we got a new winner.  This year Suanna Kerdjaroen, who was playing off a nine handicap, had a gross 81 and came out the winner.  In second place was Sompis Sam-ang-in, handicap 11 and gross 82 while the third place went to Ms Prakaydao, handicap 12 and gross 84.  These were all excellent scores on what as everyone knows is a very difficult course. We had two long drives, which were actually very long drives and they were won by Panita Srisuk and Ms Puschanattha and the near pins were won by Panita Srisuk, Rungnapa Puengseeklao, Tippawan Kanpakdee and Aumpa Seehla.Khun Jaa.last_img read more

Leafs bolster lineup after acquiring Dylan Rantucci from Creston

first_imgThe Nelson Leafs dipped into the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League trade market to bolster the blueline as the Heritage City franchise continues to build its roster.Nelson acquired 19-year-old Dylan Rantucci from the Creston Valley Thunder Cats in exchange for forward Taylor Paulovich.“The trade was made to help strengthen our back end,” Leaf GM Lance Morey told The Nelson Daily. “I had tried to acquire Dylan earlier in the year, but we could not find a way to make the deal at that time.”“After Creston got off to such a rough start we were able to reopen the negotiations,” Morey added.The 5’8”, 180-pound Rantucci has two goals and four assists in 10 games with the struggling Thunder Cats. The Eddie Mountain squad currently sits last in the division with three wins in 10 games.“Rantucci has a very good offensive upside as well as help defensively immediately for us,” Morey explained. “He is a good skater and is very smart with the puck.”“We still have a few D prospects in Junior A, and we hope to still get at least one or two of them,” Morey added. “But we could not pass up this opportunity to get a player we have been trying to get for a while now.”Unfortunately, for Nelson, the team had to give up a prospect like Paulovich in the deal. “We were not looking to move Taylor, but we had to give up a good player to get a good player,” Morey said. “Creston was looking to add some size and toughness up front and Taylor Paulovich fit the bill nicely for them.”Morey is expecting the Leduc native to be in the lineup — providing carding goes through — when Nelson travels to Creston Friday to face the Cats.Leaf management will no doubt be double-checking the paperwork after Nelson was forced to forfeit points following a carding issue September 28th versus Castlegar.Nelson played in ineligible player causing KIJHL brass to deduct the points from the Leaf win and suspend head coach Mario DiBella one game.“Taylor Paulovich is a great kid and has a huge upside moving forward, but as I said we had to give something to get something,” said Morey.“We wish Taylor all the luck in the world in Creston, a place where he should immediately get more ice and a chance to be an everyday top six forward.”Morey is pleased with the deals the team has made to strengthen the club as the KIJHL enters its second month of action.“I know the coaches both really like the way Dylan plays,” said Morey.“We are a better team with the few guy’s we have added of late. (Tyler) Nypower has really helped us and so will Rantucci.”Nelson, tops in the Murdoch Division with an 8-2 record, hosts Osoyoos Coyotes Saturday at 7 p.m. in the NDCC Arena before facing Spokane Braves in a Sunday afternoon affair.The Coyotes are also struggling, last in the Okanagan Division. However, Sunday’s contest should prove to be a tough contest as Spokane is one of the surprise teams in the Kootenay Conference, third in the division with a 5-2-0-2 record.last_img read more

New York Times Puts Reader Comments on Main Page – Good Idea?

first_img8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Silicon Alley Insider spotted the New York Times web site displaying reader comments prominently under the top story on their front page today. The comments in-and-of themselves are not newsworthy — they came from a post on the site’s news blog and the Times has linked to comment threads on the main page before. But this is, to anyone’s recollection, the first time the site has actually displayed the actual comments themselves on the site.Henry Blodget at Silicon Alley Insider thought the move was a good one, writing, “Hats off to the company’s web team for this smart move!” Other bloggers weren’t so upbeat. While it seems that the NYT times took pains to make sure that comments from both ends of the political spectrum were represented for their main page selections — often to one extreme or the other — and comments were edited to fit the space, I do question the wisdom of giving reader commentary such prominence on the site’s index page.Image from Silicon Alley Insider.We’ve praised news sites for adding reader commenting as a feature to their web sites in the past, and we recently had kind words about the New York Times Facebook app. However, giving reader comments such a prominent position is dangerous. Readers of news sites (and blogs) go to those specific destinations to read news in the voice they expect — not to see a public argument from commenters.I would applaud an expansion of New York Times comments beyond blogs to general news stories — I think commenting is great; it gives readers an outlet for instant response and keeps writers honest. But publishing comments on the main page, especially so prominently under the main story, seems like a bad idea. What do you think?

On Alltop and RSS For The Masses

first_imgTop Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting I like Alltop. It is a simple app, so I think Mike Arrington had a valid point there. But it’s effective and it is definitely an easy scan for people looking for social news to read. It won’t satisfy many early adopter types, who will continue to use the likes of Google Reader and Newsgator for ‘heavy lifting’ of RSS feeds. And early adopters will continue to use the likes of Netvibes and Pageflakes for their Alltop-like reading – i.e. when you just want to scan a bunch of your top news sources – because those apps are much more functional and configurable than Alltop. Will Alltop entice mainstream readers to follow blogs and use RSS more? I hope it does, but there is still a psychological factor to overcome in getting mainstream people to read blogs. While some people recognize that blogs are as much a part of the news ecosystem as mainstream media these days, many others still see blogging as a way to let the world know what you had for breakfast. So a service like Alltop is unlikely to change the latter attitude, which is unfortunately the most common one (not helped by mainstream media, which often portrays blogs as superficial social networking sites).RSS for the masses? Not sure I’d go that far, but Alltop is a nice, simple service that you can start pointing your non-geek friends and family to. A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… richard macmanus Today Alltop, an aggregator of RSS feeds, launched. It’s a very similar product to one of my daily refreshes, OriginalSignal. Only Alltop covers a much broader range of topics, 40 in total. Alltop’s selection of feeds is savvy and wide-ranging – and I’m not just saying that because ReadWriteWeb is the first feed listed in ‘Social Media‘ (although I am very pleased about that!). The service is being positioned as ‘RSS for the masses’, because it makes it very easy for non-tech people to find new sources to read.Founder Guy Kawasaki described Alltop as “an ‘online magazine rack’ that displays the news from the top publications and blogs.”There have been varying reactions to Alltop. Mike Arrington at TechCrunch wrote that Alltop is “just a big pile of nothing.” I think he was referring to the fact that it is relatively easy to create an app like Alltop – and he referenced the Web 2.0 Workgroup homepage (developed by Fred Oliveira a few years ago) as an example. Others think that Alltop is filling a need, for mainstream people to get into the RSS reading scene. Mick Liubinskas wrote that “I can see my wife and even my dad using it.” Mick said that “they are now both looking for stuff to read and are ready to venture outside of the news sits they know, but they are not quite sure where to start.” Chris Shipley of GuideWireGroup came to a similar conclusion to Mick, noting also that the sourcing of material is an important part of Alltop. Chris said that Alltop is “a collection of the stuff that top bloggers, Twitterers, and social media buffs like to read. It’s not the wisdom of crowds, so much as the wisdom of the most engaged social media advocates.” I agree with Chris that the content selection on Alltop is smart and savvy – these are quality blogs. Certainly Alltop has a much broader set of sources than its inspiration, PopURLs (a collection of popular, but slightly cliched by now, blog and social media sources).

Security: Big Data and Machine Learning Poised to Disrupt Legacy SEIM Market

first_imgSEIM is a $5.3 billion market and is expect to grow to $12.9 billion by 2023, according to Research and Markets. That’s nearly a 20 percent annual growth rate. Paula Musich, research director at Enterprise Management Associates (EMA), told CSO that “auditors need a way to look at whether compliance was being met or not, and SIEM provides the monitoring and reporting necessary to meet mandates like HIPPA, SOX and PCI DDS. Now large organizations typically look to SIEM as a foundation for standing up the security operations center.” SEIM — Security Information and Event Management — is software that helps businesses identify details behind cyber security threats. SEIM provides real-time data about network activity. It examines log and event data generated by servers, applications and security devices. Possible problems are classified as malware activity or failed logins. SEIM helps businesses identify and respond to cyber-security threats. Next-generation SEIM software will be built from the ground up to take advantage of newer technologies, like big data and machine learning. The market can be due for a shakeup. But there’s a problem with SEIM, or at least a lot of the legacy products still on the market. Tim Matthews, chief marketing officer at Exabeam, said that “if you look at the current market, most of the incumbent players have been in the market for 10 or 15 years. These products were developed pre-big data and before the recent revolution in machine learning. So, they can’t scale, and they don’t actually use machine learning to help you make decisions .”last_img read more
