first_imgThe Livingston Enterprise has reported that a much-needed supply of ventilators is on its way to a hospital in Park County, Montana thanks to a “generous” donation by John Mayer.After reaching out to Livingston HealthCare to inquire what equipment was most needed, Mayer, who is a part-time resident of Park County, quietly donated an undisclosed amount to be used for the purchase of ventilators for the facility. He apparently sought no publicity for the good deed, but his name was released by the hospital’s spokesperson after a request by The Enterprise “in hopes of boosting community morale.”Related: John Mayer Missed Out On Gal Gadot’s ‘Imaging’ Video Due To Ariana Grande Song Mixup [Watch]The hospital is reportedly “faring well with equipment at this time,” but with national shortages looming, they are working to conserve personal protective equipment that is in short supply.The Livingston HealthCare Foundation has established an Emergency Response Fund to help meet the needs of caregivers and patients of COVID-19. You can follow John’s lead and make a donation by visiting the foundation’s website and clicking the COVID-19 link at the top of the page, or by donating to your local hospital.[H/T The Livingston Enterprise]last_img read more

first_imgThe NHL will celebrate Black History Month for the first time, shifting its focus in February from its wide-ranging “Hockey Is For Everyone” campaign to emphasize racial diversity in the sport.The league and NHL Players’ Association will announce the joint initiative Friday morning. It includes a traveling mobile museum devoted to the history of minorities in hockey predating Willie O’Ree breaking the color barrier in 1958 and going up to the present day. The museum will debut outside Madison Square Garden in New York on Saturday.As part of this, “Hockey Is For Everyone” is expanding to year-round. March will be gender-equality month, and the plan is to add acknowledgement of Hispanic heritage and “First Nations” next season.There are roughly 20 Black players currently on NHL rosters, though executive vice president of social impact, growth initiatives and legislative affairs Kim Davis said there is strong minority representation at youth levels.“I think a focus like this during Black History Month will affirm those many kids of color that are already playing our game,” Davis said. “I think we often underestimate the pipeline of talent that is already involved in our game.”USA Hockey only recently began collecting data on player participation by race, so it will take some time to show if the sport that is predominantly white at its highest levels is making inroads. Davis added that another aim is to educate all fans of the contributions of non-white players during hockey’s history.O’Ree, who has worked since 1996 as NHL diversity ambassador and director of youth development, says he’s proud the league is celebrating black history and has seen progress in more kids playing hockey over his two decades on the job.Blue Jackets defenseman Seth Jones, one of several Black stars who will be the subject of video specials this month, said “important conversations and perspectives will be shared as part of the Black History Month celebration.”Predators defenseman P.K. Subban, Sharks forward Evander Kane and Hall of Famers Grant Fuhr and Angela James will also be among those featured.___Follow AP Hockey Writer Stephen Whyno on Twitter at https://twitter.com/SWhyno___More AP NHL: https://apnews.com/NHL and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports Winnipeg Jets’ Adam Lowry (17) chases Columbus Blue Jackets’ Seth Jones (3) around the net during the second period of an NHL hockey game Thursday, Jan. 31, 2019, in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

first_imgThe County Board have released a statement this afternoon paying tribute to Micheal and his backroom team for their service shown to the Galway Senior Hurling team since taking up their position in December 2015. It is now understood that former Galway Hurlingmanager Micheál Donoghue has no wish to be reinstated to the position. Donoghueand his management team had announced their decision to resign last Tuesday week,after 4 years at the helm.It is believed that the Management team met on Tuesday night to discuss arequest to return to their position – the result of a meeting between theplayers and the Board – but there was no desire to return.A Hurling Board meeting took place last night and the next step now it appearsis to start the process of finding the next Galway manager. The Statement reads….Galway GAA County Committee wish to record their sincere gratitude and thanks to Team Manager, Micheál Donoghue (Clarinbridge), Team Selectors Francis Forde (Turloughmore), Noel Larkin (Meelick Eyrecourt), Damian Joyce (Cappataggle) and their complete backroom team and support staff for their commitment, dedication and sterling service shown to the Galway Senior Hurling team since taking up their position in December 2015. During their tenure, over the past four seasons, this management team have been instrumental in bringing the glory days back to Galway hurling; winning a National Hurling League title (2017), Leinster Senior hurling titles (2017 & 2018) and landing the coveted All Ireland Senior Hurling title in 2017, Galway’s first All-Ireland Senior Hurling title since 1988. Micheál and his team worked tirelessly during this period, bringing a professional and thorough approach to the role, and in doing so they ensured that the Galway Senior Hurling team achieved their ultimate desired goal of winning the Liam McCarthy Cup. We also thank their families for the sacrifices that they have made over these four wonderful years for Galway hurling. All in Galway GAA wish them every success in the future. print WhatsApp Facebook Twitter Emaillast_img read more

first_img Mosley finished the game with seven saves and three goals allowed on the defensive end for Nicholls. Lily Alfred registered three saves on the night for LSU. Clarke spearheaded the Tigers’ offensive efforts with a goal and an assist. Spencer Valdespino led the Colonels offensively with two shots (one shot on goal). Ainsley Pratt and Emily Werenskiold each had a shot on goal. LSU opened up the scoring in the 7th minute when Fernanda Pina took a pass from Clarke Summer and fired a shot passed the outstretched arms of Nicholls goalie Taylor Mosley. Only 11 minutes later, Clarke scored on a header off of a free kick from Natalie Gomez-Junco for the second score of the game. In the 28th minute, Pitre Christyna served a pass to Jorian Baucom who beat Mosley to the ball and finished with a header for the final score of the game.center_img LSU 3, Nicholls 0 BATON ROUGE, La. – After a short lightning delay, the Nicholls State University women’s soccer team was defeated by Louisiana State University on Tuesday night by a score of 3-0. The Colonels (2-3) fell behind early and could not and could not dig their way out as the Tigers (3-1) played keep-away most of the second half. The Colonels will play their first home contest of the season against the University of Louisiana-Lafayette at 4 p.m. on Friday at the Nicholls Soccer Complex.last_img read more

first_img8 September 2011 The levels of “contact crime” in South Africa – crimes usually involving violence – decreased by 6.9% in 2010/11, Police Minister Nathi Mthethwa said on Thursday, while adding that the fight was far from over. Releasing the country’s annual crime statistics in Pretoria on Thursday, Mthethwa said there was a decline in all types of “contact crime”, including murder, rape, assault with intent to do serious bodily harm, common assault, aggravated robbery and common robbery. Murder was down by 6.5% and sexual offences by 3.1%. Assault with intent to do serious bodily harm dropped by 4.5%, while robbery with aggravating circumstances was down by 12%. However, Mthethwa said the stats were still worrying. “Contact crime is an area of crime which by its nature leads to serious feelings of fear and insecurity, because it is this form of crime [with] which violence is normally associated.”Drug-related crime on the increase Noting the 10.2% increase in drug-related crimes in 2010/11, Mthethwa said the police, instead of focusing on arresting people in possession of drugs, would be mounting operations aimed at the leaders of drug syndicates. He said they would also be working with the Departments of Education and Social Development in addressing the challenge of affected children. “We also acknowledge that dealing with drugs is a global challenge that needs to be coordinated with our international counterparts.”Drunken driving on the increase Mthethwa said it seemed people were not taking the “don’t drink and drive” motto seriously, as drunken driving cases were up by 3.5% in 2010/11, following the previous year’s 10.6% increase. “We all have a duty to ensure that our roads are safe, and those who break the law will be severely punished.” Although the stats showed a general decrease in all crimes, Mthethwa said this was just a motivating factor for the police, and that the fight was far from over. “Victory against crime is now an achievable goal. However, for as long as young children are still under bondage of crime and drugs, for as long as businesses are robbed, for as long as women are abused and raped, for as long as South Africans are mugged and hijacked – none of us must rest.” Source: BuaNewslast_img read more

first_imgiPhone & iPadTweetBot 2.0 ($2.99 — iPhone/iPad)The staff was so excited by this app at the beginning of the month that I actually had to preempt them from using it as their Staff Picks for the Apps Of The Month and take it for myself. Multiple timelines, smart gestures, native push notifications, support for Read It Later and Instapaper, custom navigation, save drafts and locations. TweetBot has it all and it has a shiny new user interface that people have come to love. Quite personally, my favorite Twitter client for iOS is the official Twitter app for the iPad but I can get behind the TweetBot excitement and the fact that the company was ballsy enough to release it for $2.99. A paid Twitter client?! Say it ain’t so. Yet, this one may be worth the money. OnLive Desktop (Free — iOS, Android)OnLive brings your PC desktop to your mobile device via instant response from the cloud. View and edit Microsoft Office documents such as Word, Excel and PowerPoint and sync your entire PC to your Android tablet or iPad. The iOS version came out in January but the Android version was in February so we will give it an App Of The Month nod. My sister owns a restaurant in Charlottesville, Virginia and she got a new iPad for Christmas and came to me looking for cool apps to download (having the mobile writer for ReadWriteWeb as your brother is handy). About a month later she texted me out of the blue trying to find ways to sync her home desktop to her iPad so she could manage documents like schedules and invoices from her tablet while at work. At the time I pointed her to the Citrix Receiver and something from VMWare but OnLive might actually be the way to go. Staff PicksWe started Staff Picks last month and I promised that I would shame anyone on the staff that could not find an app for me in the month. I am going to hold back on the shaming this month because I did not actually give most of the staff a good amount of lead time before telling them when this month’s update was coming. So, instead of likening the staff to angry baboons (all in good fun, of course), we will just get straight to the picks. This month we got selections from John Paul Titlow, Jon Mitchell and Robyn Tippins. John Paul Titlow — WriterCamera Awesome (Free — iOS)The cameras that come built into iPhones, Android devices and Windows Phones are now capable enough to replace point-and-shoot digital cameras in most people’s lives. On top of that, we’ve seen the rise of photo-editing and sharing apps like Instagram, Hipstamatic and Camera+, all of which give new visual life to the images people snap on their phones. If you thought there wasn’t room for one more photo app, you obviously haven’t played around with Camera Awesome yet.The iOS app is really a few apps in one. Its basic picture-taking functionality blows the native iPhone camera app out of the water. Meanwhile, it has all the photo-editing features of many paid, stand-alone editing apps. On top of that, it has Instagram-style filters, textures and social sharing options.Check out here for the full review. 90º ($.099 — iPhone/iPad)I will admit it … I really suck at puzzle games. My mother used to kick my butt in Dr. Mario and Tetris on Nintendo when I was a kid and things are not much better more than 20 years later. Yet, 90º is a really neat game that is both challenging and fun so I gave it a whirl. I found out that I still suck at puzzle games. From the App Store description, “Your goal is to collect as much energy as you can whilst turning your wrench as few times as possible to get to the end. You have a limited number of rotations, so use them wisely!” Related Posts Tags:#mobile#web Game Your Video ($1.99 — iPhone/iPad 2)If you follow the tech press, you have probably seen Game Your Video on basically every tech site on the Web earlier this month. It won Best of Show at MacWorld and App of the Week in the App Store. It is a video editing app that lets you add motion effects, audio transformations, filters, themes without track-based scripts. Game Your Video will allow you to do all of this straight from the app while it is playing live with a gaming interface unique to any video editing software that we have ever seen. Definitely one of a kind and the biggest surprise is that it comes from a small studio in India that, until this month, nobody had ever heard of. Chrome for Android (Free — Ice Cream Sandwich Only)There are a lot of things to like about the Chrome Beta for Android browser. It will sync all of your Chrome browsers across devices, be a boon for HTML5 apps on Android and bring the Chrome OS closer to integration with its mobile counterpart. It is fast, can sync all of your bookmarks and has an incognito mode. There are a variety of Android browsers competing for user attention including the native browser, Opera HD and Dolphin but Chrome has the potential to come in and put them all to shame. The only problem now is that it only works on Android 4.0 which precludes about 99% of all Android users from actually getting their hands on it. Osmos HD ($2.99)Did I mention that I am terrible at puzzle games? Well, this may be an exception. Osmos HD is one of the simplest and most visually appealing puzzle games that I have come across in some time and it finally has made its way to Android. It is is like the classic Asteroids game met a stoner developer on a sandy beach looking up at the stars and was inspired by a jellyfish. You are a floating galatic mote that much is absorbs smaller lifeforms while trying to keep from getting eaten by larger entities. Float through space in this relaxing game from the developers at Hemisphere Games. Cartoon Camera (Free)There are no shortage of camera apps for iOS or Android but some of them stand above the crowd. Whether that is Instagram for iOS or Retro Camera for Android, there are some great things happening in the world of mobile photography. Cartoon Camera is a free Android app that does exactly what it sounds like: turns your photos from dreary looking real life stills into cartoon sketches worthy of any Anime or Waking Life followup. Cartoon Camera is similar to some of the effects that can be created in Camera Fun for Android but it is more polished and gives a better cartoon representation. Talking Pierre the Parrot (Free and $0.99)I have been trying to figure out why “games” like Talking Tom Cat and Pierre the Parrot are popular and have been drawing blanks. Then, I downloaded Pierre and it hit me. This is good old-fashioned fun with a parrot that lives in your Android. Talk to Pierre and he will imitate you but also remember what you said before and cobble together sentences from what he remembers. The possibilities are endless and the potential for having a dirty talking bird in your pocket has potential for pub time fun for everyone. I really just wrote that sentence. You can even record Pierre videos and upload to Facebook or YouTube or email or MMS them to people. Pierre is childish in so many ways that it actually becomes fun. Notable UpdatesIt is always important to remember to go into your device and update apps on a regular basis. Updates provide new functionality, performance and security upgrades and make sure that the bugs from the last version have been taken care of.iOS UpdatesNook by Barnes & Noble, Foursquare, Kinetik, Quora, Skype for iPad, Can I Stream It?, Atari’s Greatest Hits, The New Yorker Magazine, Newsy for iPad, StumbleUpon, WebMD for iPad, Google+, OpenTable, Spotify, IMDb Movies & TV, Hotspot Shield, Qik Video, Instagram, Discover, NFL ’11 for iPad, Wired Magazine, Opera Mini Browser, Path, Slice, Pulse, Flixster, Flipboard, Square, Words With Friends Free, HBO Go, Rdio, The Weather Channel, Skype, Twitter, Hipmunk Flight Search, NYTimes for iPad.Android UpdatesAdobe Flash Player 11, E-Trade Pro, Easy Task Killer Advanced, Facebook, Foursquare, Google Books, Google Maps, Google+, Hulu Plus, Kindle, LinkedIn, Lookout Security, Norton Mobile Utilities, Flixster, News360, NYTimes, Path, PayPal, Rdio, Skype, Swiftkey X, The Weather Channel, Twitter, WordPress, YouTube, Dolphin HD Browser, Evernote, Medscape, Opera Mobile, Pandora, Paper Camera, Skitch. Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement Clik (Free — iOS, Android)Brought to you by the fine folks at Kik, Clik is a remote control for any screen with a browser. That may sound ambiguous and a little esoteric but it is actually pretty cool. Point your desktop browser at ClikThis.com and then scan the QR code that comes up with your smartphone to sync the two. You can then use the smartphone as a remote to surf YouTube videos. There is no extra hardware, dongles, NFC chips or any other such nonsense. Just a browser and a smartphone with a camera and you now have remote access to videos on your computer from your phone. While it is just a proof-of-concept at this point, Kik’s CEO Ted Livingstone told Anthony Ha at TechCrunch that potential partners for the app are in the works, from music services to gaming companies. What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … Here is Robert Scoble’s interview developer Rahul Arun Shetty:Clear ($1.99 — iPhone)Clear is a task management app that brings one of the most innovative uses of gesture based input that we have ever seen. There are no static buttons in Clear but everythingis done via a swipe, pull, pinch or tap and hold. Create and item by pulling the list apart or pulling down, swipe right to complete it, left to delete, pinch vertically to shut it or pull up to clear it. Simple and clean, one of the better task managers that we have seen. As smartphones and tablets end up in the hands of more people, the volume of apps continues to rise exponentially. We noted that January had the highest download rate of the top 200 iOS apps from the Apple App Store than any month previous. February will likely break that record and it will be broken again in March. We are truly at the inflection point of explosive growth for smartphones and apps where it is no longer the early adopters looking downloading apps but everyone and their mothers. That makes it much harder to find useful or entertaining apps. There is a sea of apps in the App Store and Android Market and growing by thousands of submissions everyday. We are here to help with our Apps Of The Month column that examines what is new in iOS and Android and where you should be looking for great new functionality on your smart device. We brought back the Staff Picks section this month and the notable updates section is in its six month.We likely missed some great apps that you found this month. If you found something that should be on this list or you want to make the world aware of, let us know in the comments. Cross-PlatformGlancee (Free — iOS, Android)Glancee helps you find people that are nearby. It recognizes other Glancee users based on proximity and gives you an alert when somebody you know or somebody interesting is in your general vicinity. I cannot figure out if this is a really cool way to make serendipitous connections or just kind of creepy and stalker-ish. Think of Glancee as kind of a location-based social network for people you may know or do not know but think you might like to know sometime. MLB At Bat ( Free with $14.99 subscription — iOS, $14.99 Android)When I was a broke and in college and living away from Boston, the MLB.com mobile site that had pitch-by-pitch tracking was my favorite (and only) way to track the Red Sox on a daily basis in real-time. I was using it through Windows Mobile on a Samsung BlackJack and, at the time, I thought it was the coolest thing in the world. Over the years, the coolest thing in the world has gotten cooler … if you like baseball. The MLB At Bat app gives you live pitch-by-pitch tracking of MLB games through its GameDay feature and a subscription to MLB Premium ($125 a year) will let you stream any game from anywhere, live. This is not really new from the MLB At Bat 2011 app except for the pricing and subscription models have changed for iOS. Instead of having to buy the app twice for iPhone and iPad, it is just one purchase with a subscription. The Android version is much more functional than it was last year and improvements have been made to the iOS app. I have spoken with some of the designers that created the app for MLB and it is a fairly difficult process to take video feeds, audio feeds, real-time stats and news and pull it all from their direct sources (the MLB broadcast networks) and stream it in real time to your device. So, appreciate the hard work and, if you love baseball as much as I do, this is the must-have app for 2012. NPR Music (Free — iPhone/iPad)Everybody at ReadWriteWeb loves NPR. I very rarely listen to the radio but every so often in the car I will tune into NPR in search of intellectual stimulation or good classical music. Especially on long drives. The NPR Music app brings all goodness of NPR music straight to your iPhone or iPad with streams of over 100 NPR stations, a searchable list of music across different genres and reviews and information about the artists. It is like Pandora all of a sudden got really smart. Jon Mitchell — WriterBuzz Contacts ($0.99 – iPhone) As a replacement for the built-in iPhone phone app, I’m using a new app called Buzz. It replaces the endless, alphabetical scrolling lists built into iOS with big, tappable panes for custom contacts of your choice. You can put your contacts into groups, like work, family and friends. Each group gets organized into pages of four big contacts at a time. When you add someone to a group, you choose whether you’d like phone, text, email or FaceTime to be the default mode for them. Tapping once goes straight to that mode, tapping twice lets you choose from the others. The first update added the ability to swipe up and down between groups, so now it’s even easier to find the contact you’re looking for.The app does even more, and if you’re not yet convinced to replace the phone app with it on your home screen, check out my full ReadWriteWeb review.Robyn Tippins — Community ManagerFancy Pants ($0.99 — iPad)Fancypants is a new app for iOS from Electronic Arts. It’s not a new game, however, being available on consoles and as a flash game online for almost a year. Unfortunately, the move over to iPad doesn’t really take advantage of key iOS features at all. The moves that once were done with arrow keys are now done with arrow icons. You might expect a platformer to use arrow keys, but FancyPants could be so much more. When I handed the iPad to my daughter, who often plays FancyPants online, she immediately tried to use touch to slide the character around. When that didn’t work, she tilted the machine to move him. I think it’s fairly clear that arrow keys aren’t the expected movement mechanism for an iPad game.Despite the quirks, FancyPants is a solid game and certainly worth the $.99. I’m often disappointed by an iOS game, but this one will keep us playing for months. dan rowinski AndroidAirBind (Free)Sync your iTunes to your Android over Wi-Fi. Install the PC or Mac client on your computer then launch AirBind on your Android and your device will seek out your music on your computer. There are other services like such as DoubleTwist but AirBind is a new app that does one thing and attempts to do it well. Whether it does it well or not is a matter of debate as the ratings in the Android Market are pretty split between one star and five stars. Personally, with between Google Music and my Spotify subscription on my Motorola Atrix, I do not need to sync my iTunes and the idea seems to be two years old but some people might find value in it. If you have tried it, let us know in the comments what you think of it. Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces The Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technologylast_img read more

first_imgPresident Trump met with Senate Republicans at the U.S. Capitol on November 28 to again press for passage of the Senate GOP’s Tax Cuts and Jobs Bill. Shortly thereafter, the Senate Budget Committee approved the GOP tax bill, removing the last hurdle for the tax bill before it moves to the Senate floor.Approved Tax Bill The luncheon between the President and GOP senators concluded just prior to the Senate Budget Committee’s approval of the fiscal year 2018 budget resolution and GOP tax bill. The committee approved the legislation by a 12-to-11 party line vote. A full Senate vote on the bill is expected later this week but could come as early as November 29. Floor amendments to the bill are expected.GOP HoldoutsSenate Republican leadership, along with Trump, continue to press forward in their efforts to rally the necessary 50 GOP votes for the tax bill’s approval. “We know we can’t move forward until we get 50 people satisfied, and that’s what we’re working on,” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., told reporters after meeting with the president. He likened the challenge to dealing with a rubik’s cube.Several Senate Republicans have remained noncommittal to the tax bill, while Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., has expressly stated he’s a no vote on the bill as it stands. However, chances of the bill’s success seemed brighter on November 28 for Republican leadership, as several key GOP votes expressed optimism.Johnson and Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., both voted yes on the bill in the Senate Budget Committee on November 28, a move that allows the bill to come to the Senate floor. Corker’s vote was swayed by an “outline of an agreement ” with GOP leadership, he told reporters. Later in the day, Johnson said in an interview that Trump has said he will “fix” the issues Johnson has with the tax bill.Additionally, Sens. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., Susan Collins, R-Me., and Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn., met privately with Trump after the GOP luncheon. Graham signaled the meeting resulted in “progress.” As with Johnson, Trump reportedly told Collins that he will also address the problems she has with the tax bill.Democrats OpposedSenate Democrats remain largely united in their opposition of the GOP tax reform bill. Senate Finance Committee (SFC) ranking member Ron Wyden, D-Ore., said in a November 28 tweet that the bill would be “devastating for middle class working Americans.” Likewise, Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer, D-N.Y., said on November 28 that the bill will raise taxes on middle-class families. “Bipartisanship and compromise are possible on tax reform. We can do a better job than this and not saddle the next generation of Americans with even larger deficits, even larger debt,” Schumer said in a tweet.In contrast, SFC Chairman Orrin G. Hatch, R-Utah, in calling for bipartisanship on November 28, said that he has “never seen it worse” when it comes to partisan politics. “I wish we could get Democrats and Republicans together – this is a time when we ought to. I call on my Democrat friends, let’s work together and get this done,” Hatch told reporters at the Capitol. At this time, it remains unclear whether the bill will have any, even if marginal, Democratic support.By Jessica Jeane, Wolters Kluwer News StaffLogin to read more tax news on CCH® AnswerConnect or CCH® Intelliconnect®.Not a subscriber?
