first_imgAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Bayern Munich chiefs Kovac, Salihamidzic concerned after Liverpool drawby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveBayern Munich coach Niko Kovac believes getting Liverpool in the Champions League round of 16 is the toughest draw they could land.The Bundesliga champions will travel to Anfield for the first leg on February 19 with the second leg at the Allianz Arena on March 13.Kovac said, “Liverpool got to the final last year, they’re top of the Premier League and one of the favourites for the Champions League.“We’re FC Bayern München, though, and I’m sure Liverpool know they’ve got to come here to Munich for the second leg. The chances are 50-50. We’ll see what happens. I’m very confident we’ll get through.”Bayern sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic added: “They’re the team of the hour, they’re the league leaders in England.“They play good football, they’re very physical and they’re full of energy.“You need two good days. They were in the final last year, they’re a top side, it’s a tough one but these are the challenges that you look forward to as a player and that you have to overcome in your career.”Winger Arjen Robben was also gushing in his praise of Jurgen Klopp’s side.“It’s an epic match. Liverpool are a super team who have gone through a great development,” Robben told Bayern’s website.“They have big players, a lot of pace and creativity in attack and they’re a real unit. The atmosphere will be phenomenal. It’s just a great draw. It’s a dream for every player to be involved in a game like this.”However, Bayern keeper Manuel Neuer claimed that the Reds can still be “vulnerable” defensively having shipped seven goals in the group stage.“They’re having a very good season and we know they were in the Champions League final last year,” Neuer said.“They certainly won’t be delighted with the draw, either. They can counter quickly and they’re dangerous in front of goal, but they’re also vulnerable, as we’ve seen, and they’ll be up against a good Bayern attack.” last_img read more

Military on defensive after soldiers mistakenly given guns for Sikh parade

Posted on by

first_imgOTTAWA — The Canadian military is scrambling to explain why a group of soldiers was issued weapons to march in a Toronto parade on Sunday for Canada’s Sikh community.Photos and videos of the event show the soldiers, many of them Sikhs, marching in the Khalsa parade in full military uniforms and carrying assault rifles — which is not normally allowed for such events.Canadian Army spokeswoman Karla Gimby says the only time weapons are normally allowed to be carried in public is during certain military parades or demonstrations such as a tattoo.She says the commanding officer of the Lorne Scots reserve unit, which is based in Mississauga, signed off on the weapons after his commander approved participation in the parade.Gimby says additional orders prohibiting the carrying of weapons at similar events have been issued by the army’s top commander in Ontario, Brig.-Gen. Joe Paul, who is also following up with the unit.Held to commemorate the Sikh holy day of Vaisakhi, Sunday’s Khalsa parade coincided with the federal government’s decision to remove a reference to Sikh extremism from a report on terrorism.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Embattled Tunisia leaders face rising social discontent

Posted on by

first_imgby Antoine LAMBROSCHINITUNIS – Tunisia’s sluggish economic recovery is spurring a growing number of strikes and protests, with the discontent compounding the ruling Islamist party’s woes amid a political crisis and growing insecurity.Public offices, businesses and entire regions have since the summer been staging walkouts and demanding pay rises, extra staff, hospitals and development projects — adding to a sense of growing turmoil in the birthplace of the 2011 Arab Spring. The number of working hours lost through strikes rose by 71 percent in October compared with September, according to the social affairs ministry.In November, the situation appears to have gotten even worse. On Wednesday alone, workers unions and civil society groups called general strikes in three regions — Siliana, Gabes and Gafsa.“Clearly the economic situation today is very difficult and cannot support this level of strikes,” said Ezzedine Saidane, an independent economist.He attributed the economic difficulties primarily to the political crisis, which has dragged on for months in the absence of any agreement between the ruling Islamist party Ennahda and its secular opponents on the formation of a non-partisan transitional government.Saidane argues that the current 3.0 percent growth rate is insufficient to bring down unemployment significantly or to launch major development projects, two pressing issues for young Tunisians.Joblessness and regional inequality were driving factors behind the popular uprising that unseated former strongman Zine El Abidine Ben Ali in 2011, inspiring protests across the Middle East and North Africa that toppledleaders in Egypt, Libya and Yemen.Meanwhile, the lack of functioning state institutions and a rise in attacks by Islamist militants continue to deter investors.For two years now, Ennahda has repeated promises of public spending and recruitment to meet the country’s social demands, constantly resorting to loans to fulfil its commitments, an option that is becoming increasingly difficult.On Monday, international ratings agency Moody’s downgraded Tunisia’s sovereign debt rating one notch, while maintaining a negative outlook.Moody’s cited the ongoing political uncertainty as the main factor, as well as increased external funding challenges, exacerbated by delayed economic reforms and the persistently large deficits in the country’s fiscal and external accounts.Saidane said the government’s policies had left it without any room for manoeuver next year.“When you look at the draft budget, you can see that 40 percent is allocated to salaries, 40 percent to debts and subsidies (on essential goods) and just 20 percent on social and economic development.”Union blames government ‘nonchalance’For the powerful UGTT workers union, which plays a key role in organising the strikes, the authorities who have been calling for months for a “social truce” are solely responsible for the current situation.In a statement this week, it slammed “the nonchalance of the government in implementing certain agreements, concluded but still not applied after nearly a year and a half,” saying that was why social movements were signing up for the strikes.Some reject this argument, however, like Nejib Mrabet, who heads the Gafsa Phosphate Company (CPG).The state-run producer of the valuable mineral, which represented 10 percent of the budget in 2010, the year before Ben Ali’s ouster, is the main employer in the neglected central Gafsa region.Mrabet said that despite the company hiring 2,600 people since the revolution, it was paralysed by the disruptions that the social movements agitated for and was running at only 30 percent of capacity.“The company cannot afford another year of uncertainty and deficit,” he was quoted as saying by the official TAP news agency, adding that if the situation continued, managers and employees might have to take forced leave in 2014.Even Ennahda itself has not been immune to the growing social mistrust plaguing Tunisia, with some party members criticising certain government decisions, such as where to locate five new university-linked hospitals.That decision has provoked anger in Gafsa and Gabes.Lotfi Zitoune, who was an advisor to former Islamist prime minister Hamadi Jebali, called the failure to invest in those regions a “clear example of the dubious work of the government … in the context of political instability and difficult economic circumstances.”“It will revive accusations of nepotism and regional favouritism,” he wrote in a scathing article posted on his Facebook page.last_img read more

Buckeyes finish nonconference season undefeated with 10040 win over UTMartin

Posted on by

The No. 2-ranked Ohio State men’s basketball team completed a perfect non-conference season and improved to 13-0 with a 100-40 victory over the Tennessee-Martin Skyhawks on Monday. William Buford led the way for the Buckeyes with a season-high 23 points. The junior guard got off to a fast start, connecting on his first four shots and scoring the team’s first seven points. “I had my legs under me today and was just focused in on if I had good looks, just take them and knock them down,” Buford said. Coach Thad Matta said he was content to ride the hot hand, as Buford matched his previous season high of 16 points in the first 20 minutes of action. He was also the last starter to get a rest, first leaving the court with 10:59 remaining in the first half. “Will is one of those guys who gets stronger as the season goes on,” Matta said. “That was good to see him play well and go 9-for-11.” Behind 12-, 13- and 10-point scoring runs and solid team defense, the Buckeyes built a 49-17 halftime lead. Those trends continued as OSU opened the second half with an 18-0 run to extend the lead to 67-17. Buford accounted for seven points, two steals and an assist over that five-minute, 37-second stretch. Freshman Deshaun Thomas added 20 points and nine rebounds, and classmate Jared Sullinger recorded his sixth double-double of the year with 18 points and 11 boards. The Buckeyes shot 59 percent from the field en route to their second 100-point performance this season. OSU held the Skyhawks to a mere 27 percent shooting, the best they’ve done against any opponent this season. “I didn’t think it would be as bad as it was,” said Skyhawks coach Jason James. With OSU starting the game with a 27-5 run, Matta was able to go to the bench early and often. Nine Buckeyes saw playing time in the first half, and 10 saw at least six minutes of action. “We’ve been able to get guys a lot of minutes,” Matta said. “I just hope they keep the same mind set and work to get better.” With an 89-32 lead, Matta went with a lineup of five freshmen for the final 5:54 of the game. The lopsided score prompted many in attendance to make an early exit. Those who stayed stood in applause as Thomas approached the free-throw line with a chance to push the Buckeyes’ point total to the century mark. “We were just ready to come in and blow this team out, you know, get 100,” Thomas said. “How we play and (with) how many teammates we have that can score the ball, we can put up 100 every game.” The last time OSU was undefeated entering conference play was during the 2005-06 season, which saw the Buckeyes earn an outright Big Ten title. This year’s team will start its quest to equal that accomplishment when it travels to Indiana on Friday. “That’s a whole new season,” Buford said. “That is nothing like the non-conference.” read more

A data company is coaching cities on how to get GPS data

Posted on by

first_img $199 See it $179 Mentioned Above V-Moda Remix (Silver) See It Share your voice Post a comment CNET may get a commission from retail offers. Best Buy Sean Hollister/CNET Cities across the country are demanding location data from thousands of scooters. They aren’t doing it alone. Remix, a data analysis company, has been sharing with government officials a 2,000-plus-word guide on how to negotiate these data requests to scooter companies. The guide includes specific details on what format location data should be in and how cities can avoid Freedom of Information requests. The document, posted on Medium in March, includes a section advising cities to incorporate language in licenses for scooter companies that allows municipalities to use “any third-party software or service” to analyze data the vehicles generate. Such language would ensure that third parties, such as Remix, can access the data directly. The playbook, called A Practical City Guide to Mobility Data Licensing, was published as an unlisted article, meaning it could be seen only if the reader had the link. Remix made the post public after CNET reached out to the company. A disclaimer at the bottom reads, “This document is intended to aid cities in their consideration of the issues surrounding data licensing.” The guide was last updated on Monday.”Remix builds tools for cities to strengthen our communities with smarter transportation infrastructure and more efficient public transit,” said Tiffany Chu, Remix’s co-founder. “We work with hundreds of cities around the world to share best practices and help them navigate new mobility.”Local governments can often be overwhelmed when it comes to dealing with tech giants. That’s why cities like New York and London found themselves playing catch-up with services like Airbnb and Uber. Now cities are trying to get ahead of scooter services before they run rampant too, asking for location data to analyze traffic patterns and ensure they’re obeying laws. But critics, including the Center for Democracy and Technology, have raised concerns, arguing that the data requests are too broad and create privacy issues.Remix’s guide was intended to help cities navigate data contracts with tech companies, but it recommends many of the practices privacy advocates are criticizing.The guide suggests city permit contracts allow for the broad use of data, including raw data that contains precise GPS locations. “Because uses for mobility data are still emerging, maximizing data rights upfront allows for future flexibility and reduces the risk of needing to renegotiate a license agreement,” the guide said.In one section, Remix tells cities the contracts should allow them to access this data for as long as possible, recommending that data-use rights should be maintained for at least three years after a scooter company stops operating in the city. In its recommendations, the company told cities they should avoid requiring third parties to sign their own license agreements with data providers. Remix does ask for cities to be transparent about what data they’re collecting and how it’ll be used.”In the absence of a clear statement of intent and a demonstration of a serious approach to privacy, it is easy for constituents to become concerned about a city’s use of mobility data,” the guide said.Remix works with more than 300 city governments around the world, including that of Los Angeles, where a debate over privacy and public safety surrounding scooter location data has flared up. Several scooter companies have expressed concern about providing Remix and the LA Department of Transportation (LADOT) with sensitive location data, citing issues with how the data can be used and how it’s managed by third parties. LADOT has argued that the city needs this information for public safety and to ensure that streets aren’t overrun with scooters. “LADOT appreciates Remix’s ‘City First’ approach. We look forward to their continued contributions,” a spokesperson for the LADOT said. “Information about vehicles helps cities manage for-profit vehicles operating on the public right of way.”Scooter companies that don’t provide this data will be allowed to operate only 3,000 scooters in Los Angeles. Those that are in compliance can have fleets as large as 10,500 scooters. LADOT also gave complying companies a full year’s permit, while companies that haven’t complied get 30-day permits. The guide cautions cities to avoid provoking privacy concerns, urging city governments to steer clear of issues in its permit contracts that would raise red flags. That includes avoiding requests for personally identifiable information, having a clear privacy policy and demands for precise GPS data.Remix doesn’t work with the scooter companies, but it does help LADOT collect data, analyze it and present it in a way that’s easier for city officials to interpret. Remix hosts the data on its own cloud servers and has said it would destroy any copies of this sensitive data it has once its agreement with LA expires. Remix’s writing also shows that it’s aware of how anonymized location data can still be used to track people down. Even if there isn’t personal information tagged to location points, you could still identify who a rider is by tracing specific locations, such as a person’s home address or workplace.The recommendations don’t apply only to scooter companies, as LADOT hopes to collect location data through its BlueLA car share program as well, an electric vehicle car sharing service in LA.Originally published March 28, 3:45 p.m. PT.Update, 4:07 p.m.: Adds a statement from Remix.Correction, March 28 at 4:30 p.m.: Clarifies LADOT hopes to collect location data through its own car sharing program, different to app-enabled services like Uber and Lyft.center_img Amazon Politics Security Tags 0 $199 V-Moda Remix Preview • See Itlast_img read more
