Super Bowl 53: Rams RB Todd Gurley is 100 percent, coach Sean McVay says

first_imgRams coach Sean McVay is confident Todd Gurley will be 100 percent when the Rams face the Patriots in the Super Bowl. McVay provided an update on his running back Friday after the team held its final practice before Sunday’s game. He revealed Gurley is “feeling good” and he expects Gurley to “play a big role” against New England. Related News “He didn’t have that many touches, but he still played a good amount of snaps,” McVay said (via ESPN). “We just weren’t able to run it as much as we’d like to, because New Orleans did a nice job stopping us. Then, we were in some two-minute situations at the end of the game and the end of the half where you’re more inclined to throw it. He should be good.”When asked about his knee earlier this week, Gurley said, “I’m good.”The Rams are expected to have a completely healthy roster heading into the Super Bowl as there are no injury designations. Gurley, coming off a knee injury that caused him to miss the Rams’ final two regular-season games with inflammation, didn’t have many touches during the NFC championship game, causing some speculation as to whether he fully recovered from his injury.Gurley played 32 of the team’s 68 snaps, finishing with five touches for 13 total yards, including a 6-yard touchdown run against the Saints.

TALENTED SOPHOMORES PROSPECT PARK, OM & GIMME DA LUTE HEAD GRADE III, $100,000 AFFIRMED STAKES AT 1 1/16 MILES SUNDAY

first_imgARCADIA, Calif. (June 4, 2015)–Idle since running fourth at 3-1 in the Grade I Santa Anita Derby, Pamela and Martin Wygod’s homebred Prospect Park heads a talented field of five 3-year-olds going 1 1/16 miles in Sunday’s Grade III, $100,000 Affirmed Stakes at Santa Anita.Trained by Clifford Sise, Prospect Park was a dazzling 5 ¼ length allowance winner at a flat mile three starts back on Jan. 30 and was subsequently second, beaten 1 ¼ lengths by eventual Santa Anita Derby winner Dortmund in the prestigious Grade II San Felipe Stakes on March 7.Although he had accumulated a sufficient amount of qualifying points, Sise withdrew Prospect Park from Kentucky Derby consideration shortly after the Santa Anita Derby, citing a fever and an irregular blood count. A Kentucky-bred colt by Tapit out of the Bertrando mare Quiet Romance, Prospect Park was returned to his base at San Luis Rey Downs, where he has had five recorded works. Shipped to Santa Anita last week, Prospect Park drilled five furlongs here in 1:01.60 on May 31.“It was a little slow,” said Sise this past Sunday. “But he came home the last three eighths in 36. He had some kind of viral thing going on in the Santa Anita Derby. Two days later, he popped a temperature…This will be a good starting point back. He’s doing great, fantastic.”With an overall mark of 7-2-2-1, Prospect Park has earnings of $216,570.Trainer Dan Hendricks’ Om, who has the distinction of handing American Pharoah his only loss, a 9 ¼ length maiden drubbing last August at Del Mar, comes off a dominating 2 ¼ allowance win on turf May 10 and may merit second billing in the Affirmed.In explaining the return to the main track this Sunday, Hendricks said “We thought he would be a good grass horse, and he might be, but this time of the year I wanted to try the dirt and either get another option for him, or go back to the turf if he doesn’t like it…It’s a good time to try him, before Del Mar.”Owned by the Sareen Family Trust, Om, a Kentucky-bred colt by Munnings, will try a route of ground on dirt for the first time. With two wins from four starts, he has earnings of $82,500.California-bred Gimme Da Lute, who ran a disappointing third as the 9-5 favorite in Pimlico’s six furlong Chick Lang Stakes May 16, returns to his home base where he annihilated eight state-bred rivals in the 6 ½ furlong Echo Eddie Stakes three starts back on April 4.Owned by his breeders, Mike Pegram, Karl Watson and Paul Weitman, the bay colt by Midnight Lute was third, beaten six lengths, two races back in the Grade III, Pat Day Mile on May 2 at Churchill Downs. With two sprint wins at Santa Anita, Gimme Da Lute could be winging up front along with speedy Om. Gimme Da Lute is 5-2-1-2 overall with earnings of $187,560.A bona fide router, trainer Jerry Hollendorfer is well represented by Cyrus Alexander, who comes off a 2 ½ length allowance win at a flat mile April 16 and is a neck away from being unbeaten in his last three starts. Owned by Spendthrift Farm, LLC and Stonestreet Farm, the Kentucky-bred colt by Medaglia d’Oro will be ridden back by Rafael Bejarano. “Cy” has a win and a second at the Affirmed distance and with an overall mark of 7-2-3-2, he has earnings of $115,840.Hollendorfer will also be represented by Cross the Line, who was a well beaten fifth in the Grade III, 1 1/8 miles Illinois Derby April 18. A Kentucky-bred colt by Line of David, Cross the Line is winless since taking the 1 1/16 miles California Derby four starts back on Jan. 17 at Golden Gate Fields and will hope to get a stalking trip in the Affirmed. Owned by Red Cap Thoroughbreds, LLC, Michael Sigband, George Todaro and partners, Cross the Line is 7-2-2-1 with earnings of $155,920.With all horses assigned 118 pounds, here is the complete field for the Grade III Affirmed Stakes, to be run Sunday as the third race on a nine-race card, with jockeys in post position order: Gimme Da Lute, Martin Garcia; Cyrus Alexander, Rafael Bejarano; Cross the Line, Corey Nakatani; Om, Fernando Perez, and Prospect Park, Kent Desormeaux.                First post time on Sunday is at 12:30 p.m. Admission gates open at 10:30 a.m. –30–last_img read more

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

Finally! Google Updates PageRank: Here’s The Real Scoop From 139,000 Websites

first_img Don’t forget to share this post! AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to Email AppEmail AppShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to MessengerMessengerShare to SlackSlack Originally published Oct 25, 2007 11:54:00 AM, updated March 21 2013 Google Updates If you’re involved in Internet Marketing, chances are, you have read the news about the recent updates Google has made to it’s Toolbar PageRank number (this is the publicly available PageRank number). Much of the current discussion has been the loss of PageRank by some high-profile sites in articles like “Digg Favorites Slapped by Google” and “Google changing the PageRank Algorithm?”  There has also been a fair amount of speculation as to the cause of this PageRank loss for these popular (and in many cases, highly regarded) websites.(For those of you who don’t know what Google PageRank is, check out The Importance of Google PageRank.)The most common speculation is that these sites lost PageRank because they were selling links, and that this is a “penalty” being imposed by Google rather than just a “normal” update of PageRank. I don’t have a strong opinion (yet) as to whether this was indeed the cause, but I do have some facts related to this recent news. As it turns out, we have access to the Google PageRank data for over 139,000 websites.  This data was collected via our free SEO tool called Website Grader.  Website Grader looks at a number of factors about a website as part of its evaluation — including Google PageRank.So, here are some of the insights drawn from this database. Disclaimer: The following was derived from some quick database queries and should be used for amusement purposes only. I’m not going to try and defend the points below. You don’t have to believe me.  Also, I’d suggest using some of the numbers shown as relative measures indicating trends — not absolute numbers you’d hang your hat on.What You Can Learn About PageRank From 139,000 Websites1) Contrary to what some believe, this recent update did not just reduce PageRank for some number of websites. There were sites that have increased in PageRank as a result of the recent update. A quick scan showed at least a handful of sites with PR5 or higher than rose to PR6 or higher. (As you would expect, there were also improvements in PageRank for a lot of lower ranked sites as well).2) Overall, the average PageRank (across all sites) seems to bounce around a little. If we ignore sites with PageRank 0, the average PageRank for the home page of websites submitted to Website Grader was around 4.59 in March 2007. This increased to about 4.77 in April 2007. Coincidentally, there was a Google PageRank update in that month. I always suspected that the April update was reasonably “liberal” in its allocation of PageRank, now the data seems to back it up. Note: Technically, PageRank is assigned to individual URLs (not websites). What we tracking is the PageRank of the home/default page of a website as that is what most people talk about as a measure of the overall weight of their website with search engines.3) Currently, the average PageRank is about 4.22 in October 2007  (it was 4.16 in September 2007). So, it would seem to me that there has been a drift downward in PageRank overall since the peak back in April.Dharmesh Shah contributed heavily to this article.  In fact, he might have even posted it himself if he were not locked in the basement writing code for HubSpot right now.  (To any law enforcement officials reading this, don’t worry, he is not being held captive against his will.  He has a big smile on his face and is working on “really cool stuff”.)

My Dinner With Google & Madison Avenue

first_img What do you think:  (a) Is Madison Avenue going to grow over the next few years, (b) is it going to stay flat-ish, (c) is it going to shrink slightly, or (d) is it going to crater?  Vote below in the comments section. The whole business model of their industry is still centered around the “30-second (TV) spot.”  It sounds like they traditionally had made their money as a percentage of their clients spend on advertising, but that most of them had moved to a retainer type model that is closer to how law firms and consulting firms charge. while the Madison Avenue-ish firms were trying to hold onto the traditional marketing models.  transformation of marketing If you are an ad agency, a PR firm or a marketing services firm and think that the “Times Are A Changin,'” I’d encourage you to check out the marketing services transformation webinar. Last night I had a fascinating dinner hosted by the Massachusetts Interactive Technology Exchange that featured Google’s VP of Platforms, a bunch of senior executives from Madison Avenue-ish firms, a senior marketing exec from a Fortune 500 company, a marketing analyst and myself.  The conversation was really rich and enjoyable.  I felt like it ended up being HubSpot and Google arguing for the complete They were all exceptionally charismatic and convincing — Don Draper in the flesh.  I could see how these modern day Mad Men built huge businesses for themselves.  Regardless of what happens to their industry, their ability to sell will serve them well. Originally published Feb 18, 2010 9:33:00 AM, updated July 11 2013 I said that I thought the bright spot for Madison Avenue is that despite what many people say, I think creativity is more important than ever.  Back in 1970, if a 30-second spot came on the air, you basically had to watch it no matter how bad it was because you only had five crappy stations (a couple more with rabbit ear manipulation), no clicker, no cable, no DVR, no Hulu, etc.  In 2010, the content you create needs to be fantastic in order to get watched, get linked to, get shared on social media sites, etc.  I think the creativity bar today is an order of magnitude higher than it was 40 years ago.  Madison Ave has the talent to create remarkable content that will break through the clutter and this will serve them well through what I think will be a very rough decade. – Don’t forget to share this post! AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to Email AppEmail AppShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to MessengerMessengerShare to SlackSlack I was a little overshadowed on the charisma meter, but I made a couple of points that I didn’t think were half bad: I don’t know a lot of Madison Avenue bigwigs, so I learned a bunch of things that I’ll share with you below.  I’m hoping to create a dialog around what folks think the future of Madison Avenue looks like. Learn how HubSpot’s software, methodology and special programs for agencies and freelance marketing contractors can help you grow your business. There is a massive amount of consolidation going on in the industry by the big boys, but the valuations they pay are small multiples of EBITDA.  It struck me as odd that the big boys haven’t been more aggressive in buying some recurring revenue companies like Eloqua, Reachlocal, QuinStreet, etc.  One exception seems to be WPP, who has done some small investments in some really early (risky) startups — not sure why Sir Martin doesn’t swing a bit harder on getting recurring software revenue as it could give him a major competitive advantage.  These recurring revenue streams would smooth out the revenue/people lumps and dramatically improve their valuations. on our Company News Blog about our new marketing services transformation programs or download the slides from our I sat next to a great woman from one of the more forward looking Madison Ave-ish firms and part of her job was to manage her firm’s relationship with a major Fortune 100 client.  For this account alone, she had 80 people on her staff working on it.  From this conversation, I now understand why it is such a big deal when they lose a big account! It would be hard as hell to backfill those 80 people on a new account as it is really unlikely they are going to bag an elephant of that size around the same time as losing one, and it’s also going to be hard to spread 80 billable people around to other accounts in the meantime.  I suspect this type of situation must create major anxiety for managers and workers alike. @bhalligan Download the slides and audio from our webinar Download the audio and slides from our webinar where we relaunched the HubSpot partner program with significantly more benefits for marketing agencies. Webinar: Learn about the Benefits of Partnering with HubSpot I said that I thought Madison Avenue firms were going to have to dramatically change their business model.  In order to do so, they are going to have to dramatically shrink and then grow again.  My perspective is that they ought to do it willingly and proactively — rather than die by a thousand cuts like the newspaper executives are doing. Joey Parson For the most part, they all seemed to be in different states of denial about the demise of the 30-second spot.  They used clever lines like the only way the car companies are going to “move steel tonnage in volume” is by mass TV ad purchases.  Some convincing stats were spouted that sounded counter to everything I’d been reading, but they were relatively convincing.  To me, the denial feels like the newspaper industry denial 3 or 4 years ago, but I may be dead wrong about that. announcement I made today Photo Credit:last_img read more

What You Missed Today: June 25, 2013

It’s paying homage to architect Antoni Gaudi, who is most famous for designing the Sagrada Familia church in Barcelona (and may or may not be the origin behind the word “gaudy,” according to some in my friend circle). If you haven’t Googled yet today, the image is to the right — now you’ll understand why it was hailed by Mashable as “barely recognizable.”Anyway, there are more important things going on today than goodles (Google Doodles … think we can make it stick?).

Wait … what? Well, the idea is that Instagram sat back and watched Vine, learning from their mistakes.”Looking back, old App Store reviews now read like an instruction manual for the Instagram team, with the most negative reviews calling for nearly all of Instagram’s new features, like filters, better privacy settings, longer clip lengths, and the ability to upload previously recorded videos,” Warzel reports.I buy it … though the Topsy data showing Instagram link shares surpassing Vine link shares doesn’t convince me this is a permanent trend. I think it might just be people getting excited about this shiny new toy. We’ll see, though. Personally, I will continue to use neither, and let the more creative people out there rock it.Watch a Shark Eat a Cute SealOh … oh my … NO! Discovery Channel put out a commercial to promote 2013’s Shark Week, also known as the best week of television and the week I’ll be conveniently “working from home.” But then there’s also an adorable baby seal in the ad, and … well, yeah, just watch.It’s obviously meant to be funny (and it totally is), but I’m sure there are some seriously shocked seal fans watching out there. Either way, kudos to a job well done on your advertisement, Discovery Channel. As our regular readers know, I’m a big fan of well-executed ads, and Discovery Channel is one of the few that delivers A+ content on a consistent basis.QUICK! What’s Your Phone Number?Doctors in South Korea have identified a huge uptick in something called “digital dementia.” It’s prevalent among so-called internet addicts, and in short, describes the inability for people who are extremely digitally connected to recall basic details because of the ease with which they can typically access information.
