first_imgAbout the authorCarlos VolcanoShare the loveHave your say AC Milan boss Giampaolo: I always had faith in Reinaby Carlos Volcano20 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveAC Milan boss Marco Giampaolo thanked his players after their 2-1 win at Genoa.Lasse Schone had Genoa aheead before Theo Hernandez and Franck Kessie struck for the visitors. Pepe Reina secured the points with an injury-time penalty save.Giampaolo said, “I am quite cool-headed during a game, fortunately. I had doubts it was a penalty, but Reina has so much character that I had faith he would save it.“It was a difficult match, we went underwater and were under a lot of pressure, so I praise the lads for not letting go. I didn’t even care if they misplaced a pass or a goal, the important thing was to give a response in terms of character.“I want us to continue with this character, but obviously hope to get a sharper and higher quality style of football in future.“I want to see this team play better football, but it wasn’t possible today because they felt the pressure so much and needed the victory so badly. We had to scrape the last bit of determination and character. I couldn’t ask them for beautiful football today, as we had other objectives.” last_img read more

Opinion Columbus Blue Jackets primed to contend with NHLs best

Columbus Blue Jackets goalie Sergei Bobrovsky (72) makes a save with Minnesota Wild’s Jason Zucker (16) in front of the net during the second period on Jan. 19 at Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul, Minnesota.Credit: Courtesy of TNSThe 2015 NHL season has finally arrived, and that only means one thing: meaningful hockey games will be abundant.The Columbus Blue Jackets start off their season on Friday against the New York Rangers at Nationwide Arena starting at 7:05 p.m. Coming into the season, the Blue Jackets have big expectations after some offseason moves and look to continue to take steps toward a Stanley Cup coming to Columbus. With a new captain in place for the first time since Rick Nash was traded in 2012, forward Nick Foligno is ready to lead this team on the march for the playoffs.StrengthsIf one should give credit to anyone on the team, it is Sergei Bobrovsky. The goalie has emerged as one of the best in the league and is the backbone of the team. He took Columbus by storm in his first year with the team by winning the Vezina Trophy (the best goaltender in the league) in 2012-13. Bobrovsky has also been working a bit differently this year. He normally takes a few months off after the season to relax his body and mind away from the rink. This year, he worked more on and off the ice to be ready for this season.Having a healthy Bobrovsky is always a plus for the defense, which also has some bright spots. Ryan Murray, a young defenseman, has been considered the key to the defense. However, he has also been hurt quite a bit the last two seasons. If he can stay healthy, he can give Bobrovsky some relief from taking unnecessary shots. He has 70 shots on goal in his two seasons, meaning that he can bring the puck down the rink and even put the puck on goal.Alongside Murray is another young defenseman, David Savard. Savard is entering his fifth season in Columbus, and is coming off a 36-point campaign. Savard also had three game-winning goals last season, an impressive mark for a defenseman. Those two should help keep some pressure off Bobrovsky, and help keep the puck with the offense.Speaking of offense, the top line has not yet been mentioned. Center Ryan Johansen has made a statement over the last two years, and is now considered one of the best young players in the league.Teaming him up with Johansen is the new captain Foligno, who had an all-star year last season, even being named the captain of his squad in the 2015 All-Star Game at Nationwide Arena.He had a career year with 31 goals, 42 assists and three game-winners.Those two should be lined with a third potential all-star, in Brandon Saad.Saad comes over from Chicago, where he won two Stanley Cup Finals in 2013 and 2015. The forward is only 22 years old, but he is considered one of the up-and-coming superstars in the league. Having a top line of Foligno, Johansen and Saad should stack up against any other team’s.WeaknessesColumbus, on paper, doesn’t seem to have too many weaknesses, but that does not mean that it is perfect. After an injury-riddled 2014-15 season, regaining the team’s timing is going to take some time. With the loss of center Artem Anisimov, who was moved for Saad, that leaves a hole on the power-play and short-handed lines. Saad will be shifted to his spot, which he should be able to handle.The third and fourth lines are a mystery right now. Players such as winger Corey Tropp and center Mark Letestu’s departures could hurt the team’s depth. Tropp was a good physical presence last year, and gave fits to other defenses, while Letestu could score from the bottom lines — notching seven goals and six assists — and had a knack for ending up with the puck. This team, just like last year, needs younger guys to step up and produce in order to have any chance with the likes of the Pittsburgh Penguins, New York Rangers and Washington Capitals.Overall, this club has a good-looking roster to compete with any team in the NHL, especially with the blue-collar attitude that Todd Richards has incorporated into the Jackets’ play over the last few years.Expectations have changed in Columbus. The city expects the club to not just compete, but win. These are not the same old Jackets that were pushovers in the Western Conference. This team has tasted the playoffs, and can see the opportunity of this year. If it plays up to expectations, it should return there for the third time in franchise history. read more

KPBSD Contract Negotiations Set To Resume

first_imgDavid Brighton, KPEA President: “We have three sticking points with the District. The first is that we need to remove the healthcare cap. The second is we can’t agree with the district who says we’ll sign off on a contract now and figure the details out at the healthcare committee later. We need to know what the healthcare benefits are going forward. And finally we need to be sure that employees will take home a paycheck and not be forced to write a check to the district for the cost for their healthcare.” Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享The Kenai Peninsula Education Association and Kenai Peninsula Educational Support Association still remain without a contract after their last bargaining session which took place over a month ago. Contract negotiations are set to reconvene on August 13 with the Kenai Peninsula Borough School District. The associations voted on May 22 to authorize a strike over rising healthcare costs. The strike will take place this fall unless an agreement can be reached with the School District. KPBSD offered ideas for a new contract at the meeting on June 11, which took place just weeks after the two associations voted to strike.

Kerosene deregulation buzz price hike lift ONGC HPCL BPCL shares

first_imgShares of Oil & Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC) and Oil India Ltd flared on the BSE on Monday in response to the buzz that the government may eventually deregulate kerosene prices on the lines of diesel and cooking gas.ONGC shares were up 4.23 percent at Rs. 233.85 apiece, while Oil India was trading with gains of 3.34 percent at Rs. 374.20 on the BSE at around 1.40 p.m.The government hiked kerosene prices by 50 paise per litre last week after almost five years. The under-recovery in case of kerosene for July will be Rs. 13.12 per litre, up from Rs. 11.73 in June, according to a government statement.The likely deregulation of the commodity is being seen as a positive for ONGC and other state-run oil firms.”We believe the government may do a deregulation in kerosene prices also after diesel deregulation. The rise in kerosene prices by the government may be marginal but all these steps are positive for upstream firms and oil marketing companies”, brokerage Motilal Oswal said in a note on July 1, as reported by the Mint. “We view this as a directionally positive step as it’s indicative of the governments desire to reduce kerosene subsidy,” the brokerage further said.ONGC and Oil India are classified as upstream oil companies.The news also saw shares of state-run oil marketing companies such as Indian Oil Corporation (IOC), Bharat Petroleum Corporation Ltd. (BPCL) and Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Ltd. (HPCL) rise, though not as high as those of ONGC. IOC shares were up 1.27 percent, while BPCL and HPCL shares were each trading with gains of 1.42 percent. The rise in global crude oil prices and the consequent periodical increases in domestic diesel and petrol prices were also seen as contributing to the bullish sentiments on these stocks. “…the way petrol and diesel price changes are happening, I think that is giving a lot of confidence. So these stocks will now keep moving up in comparison to overall market PE, in comparison to overall portfolio weightage because of their own weightage,” Amisha Vora, Joint MD at brokerage firm Prabhudas Lilladher, told ET Now.BPCL shares hit a fresh 52-week high of Rs. 1,110.60 on Monday and were trading at Rs. 1,105.60, up 1.25 percent on the BSE at around 1.51 p.m.In a note in May this year, HDFC Securities projected improved prospects for state-run BPCL due to improved gross refining margin (GRM), lower interest burden and higher sales of petroleum products.The company’s GRM rose from $3.6 per barrel in 2014-15 to $6.6 in 2015-16. However, HDFC Securities also said that GRM could fall in the coming months. “Low crude prices have led to a robust demand in end products. However, we believe refining margins have peaked and a sequential decline may start soon,” it said in a research note.last_img read more

In response to the increased scrutiny, Facebook also published a draft version of a newly-worded privacy policy Wednesday.The policy doesn’t fundamentally change how Facebook treats the data of its users, but explains these uses in more detail, said chief privacy officer Erin Egan and deputy general counsel Ashlie Beringer in a joint blog post.“We explain the services we offer in language that’s easier to read,” they wrote. “We’re also updating our data policy to better spell out what data we collect and how we use it in Facebook, Instagram, Messenger and other products.”The two executives explained that the new policy isn’t set in stone yet, but that the company was looking for input from its users. “For the next seven days, you’ll be able to provide your feedback on the terms and data policy,” they said. “Once finalized, we’ll publish these documents and ask you to agree to them on Facebook, along with information about the choices you have over your privacy.”POPULAR VIDEO ON VARIETY Facebook is scanning private messages its users are sending to each other over Facebook Messenger, the company admitted in response to a Bloomberg story Wednesday.

It also analyses any images shared via Messenger to detect known child pornography, and monitors messages for other violations of its terms of service.

YouTube is taking on linear TV by opening up live

first_imgYouTube is taking on linear TV by opening up live streaming options for the first time to any channel that has more than 1,000 subscribers.The major expansion follows the introduction of live streaming functionality on the site in 2011, which has to now only been available to selected partners to air tentpole events such as the Coachella music festival coverage, and Felix Baumgartner’s record-breaking skydive.YouTube said that any channel with enough subscribers that are in “good standing” – ie follow the YouTube community guidelines – can now apply for live streaming with the functionality to roll out to these channels in the coming weeks.The features offered by the new streaming options include real-time transcoding in the cloud, with YouTube to make streams instantly available in all resolutions and device formats. Multiple camera angles, closed captions, ad inserts can also be used.The news, which coincides with Google’s I/O developers conference in San Francisco, follows the launch last week of a subscription channels pilot for its site, with 53 initial participant networks kicking-off the scheme.The new pay channels carry subscription fees starting at US$0.99 (€0.77) per-month and all have a 14-day free-trial, with many also carrying discounted yearly rates.last_img read more

Netflix cofounder and CEO Reed Hastings In the n

first_imgNetflix co-founder and CEO, Reed HastingsIn the next 10 to 20 years all television will be on the internet, with the internet sector in general “transforming our society,” according to Netflix CEO, Reed Hastings.Speaking on CNBC’s Mad Money show, Hastings said that while cord cutting is still very small today, in the long term “it’s a worry” for the cable TV industry. He also predicted that sports networks and linear channels will start to go on-demand.“You’ll be able to watch any game, you’ll be able to watch it on any device. Think of all the current linear networks – they’re going to go to on-demand also, just like HBO has,” said Hastings.Asked about the disruptive influence of Netflix, Hastings said: “The taxi cabs have not been able to hold back Uber, Walmart has not been able to hold back Amazon, so really it’s a sector thing; the internet just offers such power.”“There’s this big internet sector story that’s transforming our society – not as fast as we thought in the 90s but when you look at the big picture now it’s pretty impressive,” he added.Asked why Netflix’s success hadn’t been replicated globally, he compared the service to Starbucks – “it doesn’t seem that hard to make coffee, yet one coffee chain is amazing around the world.”He also praised Netflix’s workforce, “the heart and passion” at the company, and the execution of its strategy, for its ascent.Earlier this year, Netflix confirmed plans to launch in Portugal and Italy in October this year. In the same month it intends to go live in Spain for the first time.last_img read more
