BASEBALL: Third inning catches up to Cardinals in loss to Bears

first_img BEAUMONT — Playing the second-best team in the Southland Conference closer than the score would suggest, a big third inning against Lamar (17-35, 8-20 Southland) allowed Central Arkansas (28-24, 18-10 Southland) to get a 7-2 decision over the Cards.Starter Dylan Johnson worked through two scoreless innings before an error in the third caught up to him. A lead-off single reached second on what looked like a ground-out, then both advanced a base on the error that dribbled into right field. A hit-by-pitch loaded the bases before a sac fly scored the runner on third. A walk re-loaded the bases before Johnson struck out the next batter, and another walk scored the final batter Johnson faced. A single and a walk scored the final two batters Johnson was responsible for, but only one run was earned. After the Cards got a lead-off single from Reese Durand but left him stranded at third the score was 4-0 in favor of Central Arkansas through three innings.Kristjan Storrie, Erik Key, and Marcus Olivarez combined for the final six and a third innings with just one earned run between them, but two more errors allowed two more unearned runs to score for UCA’s seven runs in the game. Lamar got one run back in the bottom of the fourth on a lead-off single by Cole Coker, a one-out single by Anthony Quirion, and a sac fly from Robin Adames. Lamar’s second run of the game came in the bottom of the sixth. Cole Girouard was walked in six pitches and stole second before Coker advanced him on a 3-1 grounder. A sac fly by JC Correa drove Girouard the final 90 feet home.The Cardinals return to action on Friday with the second of three games against the Bears. Jason Blanchard is set for the start on Senior Day with the celebration of Lamar’s eight seniors set for 5:30 p.m. and first pitch at 6 p.m. Next Up Lamar sports informationlast_img read more

Bandara Internasional Tegel, Berlin: Terus Beroperasi Atau Berubah Jadi Pusat Bisnis

first_imgPerdebatan mulai muncul ketika rencana tersebut mencuat ke permukaan. Sebagian orang seolah tidak rela Bandara Tegel digantikan perannya oleh Berlin Brandenburg Airport, sedangkan yang lainnya bahkan mengutuk Tegel karena dinilai terlalu berisik dalam pengoperasiannya. Dihimpun KabarPenumpang.com dari laman Bloomberg.com (19/9/2017), seorang politikus lokal, Sebastian Czaja dengan lantang menolak perpindahan gelar bandara internasional utama di Berlin yang semula dipegang oleh Bandara Tegel.Sebagai bentuk penolakannya, ia membuat referendum tidak terikat dengan mengeluarkan sebuah petisi yang berisikan pengumpulan 250.000 tanda tangan untuk menolak rencana tersebut. Kelompok Free Democrat yang berdiri di belakang Sebastian mengangkat perdebatan mengenai Bandara Tegel sebagai isu utama kampanyenya di Berlin, dengan jargon “Tegel-saver” yang terpampang di seluruh papan reklame di kota tersebut. Langkah berani ini ditempuh untuk menujukkan perlawanan terhadap proyek infrastruktur besar yang tengah dijalankan, yakni proyek pembangunan Berlin Brandenburg Airport yang tak kunjung usai sejak tahun 2011 silam.Sementara itu, Greens yang diketahui sebagai rival dari Kelompok Free Democrat juga tidak mau kalah. Mereka memasang banyak poster yang berisikan kecaman terhadap Bandara Tegel yang dinilai menjadi salah satu sumber polusi suara di Berlin. Terlepas dari konteks perdebatan yang terjadi diantara kedua kubu tersebut, Berlin Brandenburg Airport atau yang umumnya dikenal dengan BER memang sempat melewati fase molor. Tidak tanggung-tanggung, sudah enam tahun pembangunan bandara tersebut tak kunjung rampung.Baca Juga: Yasser Arafat International Airport, Saksi Bisu Kekejaman Militer IsraelPembangunan bandara ini pertama kali dilakukan ditahun 2006 dan dicanangkan selesai pada tahun 2011 kemarin. Namun, banyak masalah yang ditemui dalam pembangunan bandara tersebut membuat target yang sudah ditetapkan di awal meleset. Lebih parahnya lagi, keterlambatan tersebut berdampak pada penggandaan nominal dana yang harus ditebus untuk menyelesaikan proyek itu, menjadi sekitar US$6 miliar. Tersiar kabar bahwa BER akan dibuka pada tahun 2019 mendatang, dan Bandara Tegel akan dijadikan Tech Business Park, dimana dapat dipastikan akan tumbuh puluhan gedung perkantoran dan apartemen di sana.Sementara itu, Kanselir Angela Merkel, yang mencalonkan diri untuk masa jabatan keempat dalam pemilihan, mengatakan undang-undang yang berlaku saat ini mengharuskan Bandara Tegel ditutup sesaat setelah BER terbuka. “Itulah situasi hukum yang berlaku.” tukasnya dilansir dari laman yang sama.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Like this:Like Loading… Related Sumber: wikipedia Selain dikenal sebagai bandara internasional utama di Berlin, Bandara Tegel yang juga menjadi saksi sejarah dari Perang Dunia II selain Bandara Tempelhof.

Chinese Social Media CEOs Insist Facebook Has Been Vanquished

first_imgRelated Posts Tags:#China#web dave copeland 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai…center_img Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg may have been spotted vacationing in China this week, but as far as the chief executives of his Chinese competitors are concerned, he’s no threat.Those CEOs routinely tell the state-controlled Chinese press that they’re beating Facebook, Twitter and Google+ in growth among Chinese users – never mentioning that Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and most other foreign social networks are banned from operating in China.“It’s always interesting when the CEOs of Chinese social media companies tell the press that they are beating the foreign companies in China,” said a member of a U.S. communications firm that has offices in China. “Not exactly difficult when your competitors are blocked. The press, both local and foreign, tend to stay away from the story. Nobody wants to lose access.”Zuckerberg has been traveling to China since 2010 in an effort to improve relationships and explore business opportunities. Not only would Facebook like to offer its service to the increasingly connected country, but the company has been forging relationships with Chinese software and app developers. While some Chinese Internet users are able to circumvent the so-called Great Firewall and access U.S.-based social networks, most are blocked and forced to rely on government-approved platforms.“We continue to evaluate entering China,” Facebook said in a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission as part of its initial public offering. “However, this market has substantial legal and regulatory complexities that have prevented our entry into China to date.”Earlier this year, China launched a pilot program in five cities requiring users of Twitter-like microblogging sites to register their real names. Known as “weibo” sites, about half of China’s 513 million Internet users access the sites, and their use has quadrupled in the past year.China has given no time frame of when or even if it will open up to U.S.-based social networks, but the pilot program seems to favor a social network that requires users to register with their real names. Twitter famously allows people to sign up anonymously, and Google+ was banned in China one day after it was launched last summer. But Facebook has tight rules on users registering their real names, and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is reportedly planning another trip to China.Despite the restrictions on free speech, which also prohibit Internet users from saying anything negative about the ruling political party, China remains the world’s second-biggest economy and a largely untapped market for major U.S. tech companies. Last year, Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg told Time “it’s impossible to think about connecting the whole world right now without also connecting China.”Image courtesy of Shutterstock.last_img read more

Surprise, you are in the data business

first_imgHow Myia Health’s Partnership with Mercy Virtua… Is Big Data really such a big deal?Now, “Big Data” sounds scary. But the truth is, because we all have a hand in creating and distributing it, we share both control and responsibility. The first step to harnessing that control and taking that responsibility is being aware. Data sharing and analysis can bring great benefit, and not just to businesses. Realizing benefits, however, and guarding against attendant risks requires that we acknowledge our parts. Only then can we create ways to keep ourselves safe, prepare for and combat worst-case scenarios, and, most importantly, positively contribute to the ecosystem in which we all operate.I won’t pretend covering these bases is easy, or fast. It is, however, possible, and the first step—knowing how to keep ourselves safe—begins with trust. Trust is currency. Without it, the data economy, the very basis of how we communicate and how commerce happens today, would grind to a halt. Companies must earn it, and customers must bestow it wisely. So since we’re all customers, consumer trust seems the best place to begin, by asking: How do we know who to trust with our data? And how much responsibility do we—or should we—bear for ensuring that data stays private, secure, and within our individual control? Trust is the epicenterDeciding whether or not to share personal information—name and address, credit card number, email—with a retailer, for instance, is usually where conversations about consumer trust begin. But sharing information is actually step two. Understanding that you have a choice comes first, and we as consumers often skip right past this consideration. You do not necessarily have to trade personal information to use online services. The amount and type of information an online retailer or social media platform requires you to share—and how transparent they are about that requirement—in order to make a purchase or use their service is your first indication of how trustworthy they are.  At the same time, companies need to realize their most valuable asset is their trustworthiness. Regaining lost brand credibility is difficult at best, often impossible, and at the very least incredibly costly. How much doubt are you as a company willing to risk inviting in order to gather information about your customers? Who will benefit most from the data you collect? What will you do if that data is compromised, or if your practices are called into question?If we return to the advance of the IoT and the increasing number and types of connected devices—from watches to refrigerators to family cars—it’s plain to see how easily questions of trust become more complex. Not only can we produce new devices and apps more and more quickly, they’re happening further and further from true tech. What then gets thrown into relief is companies’ and customers’ intent. Did I as a fitness tracker user intend for my average heart rate data to be exposed in the cloud and stored indefinitely, just so I could improve my health? Did I as a doll manufacturer intend when adding a recording feature, to capture and store minors’ private conversations without parental consent, just to deliver a personalized experience for kids? Harvey Anderson Related Posts Follow the Puck Are more laws the answer?Of course we need ways to hold businesses and individuals accountable, but we simply can’t implement laws quickly enough to keep up with tech changes. Further, laws that are rushed through can have unintended, unpredictable consequences. Most important, though, is that even the most thoughtful legislation won’t address the core issue here: awareness. But being aware that you’re in the data business isn’t enough—you need to be aware of what to do about that, and why. If we as vendors and consumers can influence more people to acknowledge and grasp this principle, we can then, for instance, write and enact standards and best practices, such as those I’ve been part of creating with the Online Trust Alliance. Then we’ll have actual criteria for deciding (when we’re consumers) who deserves our trust, and (when we’re businesses) whether or not we’re earning it. I look forward to sharing in upcoming posts more specific guidelines for consumers and companies to follow in making crucial purchasing, data-sharing, and business decisions in the IoT.center_img Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces Do you share information digitally, with other people or with companies, in your personal or professional life? Then you’re in the data business.That may come as a surprise to anyone who doesn’t work in Silicon Valley, or even in the tech field. The millions of people in manufacturing, healthcare, or education may not think they’re in the data business. But they are—we all are. The emergence of the Internet of Things and “Big Data” has blurred the line between being connected and offline in almost every way imaginable. Home and work lives overlap, industry borders are complicated, and the distinction between being a customer and a supplier is the most fluid it’s been. In fact, that line may no longer exist at all.

Governor Of New Mexico Donates $10,000 To UNM Hoops Star’s Cancer Charity

(Photo by Andy Lyons/Getty Images)Breast cancer is a very personal topic for University of New Mexico basketball star Hugh Greenwood. His mother is battling the disease, and just last week, Greenwood called out a Twitter troll who made horrific jokes about his mom’s illness as the source of motivation behind a 22-point, eight-rebound performance in a win over UNLV.Greenwood’s decision to admonish the Twitter user earned him plenty of support and generated some publicity for his charity, Pink Pack, which donates money to cancer research. In fact, New Mexico governor Susana Martinez was moved enough by Greenwood’s story that she donated $10,000 to his cause.Greenwood was touched by the gift, and acknowledged Martinez via Twitter:Absolutely Speechless! Words can’t even begin to describe how thankful I am to you @Gov_Martinez, and your $10,000 donation to @HGPinkPack!— Hugh Greenwood (@HGreenwood3) January 26, 2015What began as a cruel story about the ugly side of social media has transformed into a positive tale of human compassion.
