Half-time: Fulham 2 Wigan 1

first_imgFine goals from Ross McCormack and Matt Smith gave Fulham the advantage despite Wigan controlling much of the play.The Whites began the game brightly and went in front after only four minutes.Sean Kavanagh rolled the ball to McCormack, who curled it brilliantly around Scott Carson from the edge of the box for his 13th goal of the season.But Wigan, in Gary Caldwell’s first game as manager, found their way back into the game and also converted their first chance, after 20 minutes.Having been restored to the starting line-up, Jermaine Pennant fired in a free-kick past Marcus Bettinelli after Scott Parker had fouled James McClean.With Fulham on the back foot for much of the half, McCormack almost grabbed his second, only to be denied at the last moment by a sliding challenge from Harry Maguire.And it was his strike partner who put Fulham ahead again 10 minutes before the break.Smith found a pocket of space 30 yards out and unleashed a sublime shot into the top corner to give the Whites an undeserved half-time lead.Fulham: Bettinelli; Grimmer, Turner, Burn, Husband; Hoogland, Parker, Tunnicliffe, Kavanagh; Smith, McCormack.

Class Action Lawsuit Accuses Apple and App Makers of Sharing User Data With Advertisers

first_imgWhy Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Tags:#Apple#NYT#web Apple, along with several prominent iOS app developers, has been hit with a class action lawsuit, accused of allowing iPad and iPhone apps to transmit users’ personal information to advertising networks without their consent.The suit was filed on Dec. 23 in federal court in San Jose, California and centers on the use of the Unique Device Identifier (UDID). According to the lawsuit, this unique identifying number “transmits that information along with the device’s location data to third-party advertisers.” The suit also contends that some apps share users’ location, age and gender with advertisers; Pandora, Dictionary.com, the Weather Channel, TextPlus and others are named, along with Apple, as defendants in the lawsuit.The lawsuit follows a Wall Street Journal story earlier this month that found that over half of the 100 popular apps it examined transmitted the UDID, along with other information, to other companies – all without users’ awareness or consent.For its part, Apple says that apps “cannot transmit data about a user without obtaining the user’s prior permission and providing the user with access to information about how and where the data will be used.” But according to the WSJ investigation, many apps seem to violate this rule, and Apple spokespeople have been mum on how the company interprets or enforces this policy. The lawsuit claims that the transmission of personal data is a violation of federal computer fraud and privacy laws. It seeks class-action status for all Apple customers who downloaded an application between Dec. 1, 2008 and last week. But as Bloomberg notes, it may be hard to prove that Apple has violated any laws given the terms of service we all agree to (but never read.) “Still,” writes Bloomberg, “it’s another sign that concerns about monitoring consumers’ behavior via their electronic devices is not about to go away anytime soon, as regulators and Congress prepare to take an even closer look at the issue in the new year.” Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hostingcenter_img Related Posts audrey watters 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Marketlast_img read more

What Happens to .ly Domains When Libya Shuts Down the Internet

first_imgA Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Tags:#Government#web audrey watters When the Libyan government pulled the plug on the country’s Internet access on Friday, many outside the country were concerned about the implications the shutdown would have on the country’s top level domain (TLD). After all, the .ly domain is a popular alternative to the .com, used by a number of companies, but arguably most commonly associated with its usage as a URL shortener.No surprise then, John Borthwick, CEO of Bit.ly was quick to respond to an inquiry on the Q&A site Quora that asked if .ly services would be interrupted with Libya offline. Don’t Worry about .lyThere’ll be no interruption, according to Borthwick. “For .ly domains to be unresolvable the five .ly root servers that are authoritative *all* have to be offline, or responding with empty responses,” he writes. “Of the five root nameservers for the .ly TLD: two are based in Oregon, one is in the Netherlands and two are in Libya.”Borthwick’s response should serve to reassure users of Bit.ly, at the very least. He says that the company will keep the service running, including “offering options around which top level domains you use.” Try .mp, for example (that’s the TLD for the Northern Mariana Islands).Or, Maybe We Should WorryHowever, Kim Davies cautions against a “sense of false confidence” and says we shouldn’t think “that country-code domains are impervious to these kinds of government-mandated Internet shutdowns.” He agrees that the effect of an Internet shutdown may not be immediate, but the effects can still be “devastating.” Davies points out that the servers outside of Libya are still reliant – eventually -on obtaining updates from the .ly registry within the country. “If they are unable to succeed in getting updates, at some point they will consider the data they have stale and stop providing information on the .LY domain.” Davies pegs that at 28 days.Unlike Egypt, which was offline for a week, Libya has had intermittent Internet access. The Next Web posits that the shutdowns in Libya echo some sort of nightly curfew – off at 11pm and on again at dawn. This makes it likely that other DNS servers will update their records and the .ly domains will continue working.Nevertheless, it’s worth noting that this isn’t the first problem that those outside of Libya have had with the TLD. Last fall, the Libyan government shut down Vb.ly, the URL shortener run by sex writer violet blue. The domain was yanked because of its content – as it “fell outside of Libyan Islamic/Sharia Law.” All this should serve as a cautionary tale for anyone obtaining a domain – in Libya or, frankly, elsewhere, as TLDs fall under government scrutiny and seizure, no matter the country.

Former Indiana Star RB Tevin Coleman Misspelled “Hoosiers” On This Trading Card

first_imgTevin Coleman Hoosiers Trading Card.Tevin Coleman Hoosiers Trading CardTevin Coleman played three years of football at Indiana, and was one of the top running backs in the Big Ten his last two seasons. He was selected in the third round of the 2015 NFL Draft by the Atlanta Falcons after leaving school with one year of eligibility remaining.Three years was plenty of time for Coleman to establish himself as a star on the gridiron, but apparently not long enough for him to learn to spell IU’s nickname. Trading card company Panini America includes athlete artwork in its packs, and Coleman’s sketch featured a misspelling of the word Hoosiers.Tevin Coleman’s 1 of 1 art card for Panini pic.twitter.com/5bJA1ZrCXj— Darren Rovell (@darrenrovell) June 15, 2015Ouch. That’s a pretty bad mistake by Coleman, and kind of odd that Panini didn’t want him to correct it. The IU faithful probably won’t be happy to see this, though we’re sure they’ll still accept Coleman due to the yeoman’s effort he put forth on the field for a sub-par team.last_img read more

Rescued canine makes it to dog squad of WB Police

first_imgKolkata: A stray canine, rescued by the police, has become the first street mongrel to join the elite dog squad of West Bengal Police. Asha, as named by the Kolkata Police officers who rescued her from stone-pelting kids on the city streets, has been trained in the last one-and-half years to become member of the dog squad of the West Bengal Police Training Academy, Barrackpore, deputy inspector general of police Dipankar Bhattacharya said. Also Read – Centuries-old Durga Pujas continue to be hit among revellers”Initially, we did not have plans to train her or include her in our dog squad as we never had any street dog in the squad. But the then inspector-general (Training) K Jayaraman thought of providing training to the stray dog and see if she could be included in the canine squad,” Bhattacharya said. Asha who will be joining “pedigreed” members such as German Shepherds and Labradors in the dog squad, has proved to be a good sniffer dog in detecting explosives, the DIG said.

She has proved herself to be as smart and intelligent as pedigreed dogs. “We are proud that we are successful in training a stray dog to handle situations. She is ready for work and will join the squad soon,” the IPS officer said expressing his willingness to try to include more street mongrels in the squad after training them. “Asha is a well-mannered dog. She picked up very quickly and started following instructions on how to heel and walk, crawl, lie down, roll over and salute just like others pedigreed dogs,” another senior officer in the West Bengal Police’s dog squad said. “But if you ask me, I will tell you that Asha was very good at training and most of the times, she was better than the pedigreed dogs. She is the fastest runner dog in our squad and quite clever. That’s her mettle,” the officer said.last_img read more
