He likewise came up with an option for erring players to settle fines by performing community services.Marcial also assured Gilas Pilipinas’ coach Chot Reyes the availability of Jayson Castro, Kiefer Ravena, Kevin Alas, RR Pogoy, Matthew Wright, Allein Maliksi, Gabe Norwood, Calvin Abueva, Carl Bryan Cruz, Mac Belo, Troy Rosario, Jio Jalalon, Raymond Almazan, Japeth Aguilar and June Mar Fajardo to the national pool.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crownSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkReyes tweeted the names on Thursday night.

Frustrated Lampard bemoans Chelsea’s missed chances

Posted on by

first_imgChelsea’s Frank Lampard rued his side’s missed chances following their 1-0 Club World Cup defeat against Corinthians in Japan.Goalkeeper Cassio produced a number of good saves – including a late stop from Fernando Torres, who should have scored.Lampard told Chelsea TV: “It was always going to be a tough game. They’re a very good team and you come away with that bad feeling we had enough chances to at least draw the game.“They’re very organised and counter attack. We knew what they were going to bring. It’s disappointing really to get all the way here and not win it.”More reaction to follow later.See also:Chelsea beaten in Club World Cup finalYTo4OntzOjk6IndpZGdldF9pZCI7czoyMDoid3lzaWphLW5sLTEzNTI0NjE4NjkiO3M6NToibGlzdHMiO2E6MTp7aTowO3M6MToiMyI7fXM6MTA6Imxpc3RzX25hbWUiO2E6MTp7aTozO3M6MjI6Ildlc3QgTG9uZG9uIFNwb3J0IGxpc3QiO31zOjEyOiJhdXRvcmVnaXN0ZXIiO3M6MTc6Im5vdF9hdXRvX3JlZ2lzdGVyIjtzOjEyOiJsYWJlbHN3aXRoaW4iO3M6MTM6ImxhYmVsc193aXRoaW4iO3M6Njoic3VibWl0IjtzOjMzOiJTdWJzY3JpYmUgdG8gb3VyIGRhaWx5IG5ld3NsZXR0ZXIiO3M6Nzoic3VjY2VzcyI7czoyODM6IlRoYW5rIHlvdSEgUGxlYXNlIGNoZWNrIHlvdXIgaW5ib3ggaW4gb3JkZXIgdG8gY29uZmlybSB5b3VyIHN1YnNjcmlwdGlvbi4gSWYgeW91IGRvbid0IHNlZSBhbiBlLW1haWwgZnJvbSB1cywgY2hlY2sgeW91ciBzcGFtIGZvbGRlci4gSWYgeW91IHN0aWxsIGhhdmVuJ3QgcmVjZWl2ZWQgYSBjb25maXJtYXRpb24gbWVzc2FnZSwgcGxlYXNlIGUtbWFpbCBmZWVkYmFja0B3ZXN0bG9uZG9uc3BvcnQuY29tIGFuZCB0ZWxsIHVzIHlvdSB3aXNoIHRvIHN1YnNjcmliZSB0byBvdXIgbmV3c2xldHRlci4iO3M6MTI6ImN1c3RvbWZpZWxkcyI7YToxOntzOjU6ImVtYWlsIjthOjE6e3M6NToibGFiZWwiO3M6NToiRW1haWwiO319fQ== Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

Is This a Joke? eBay and Verizon Win Privacy Award

Posted on by

first_imgA Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Tags:#NYT#web Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… dana oshiro In a surprise announcement, eBay, and Verizon have been awarded the top titles of “Most Trusted Companies for Privacy” by the Ponemon Institute and TRUSTe. According to a recent survey, these companies were shown to offer clear privacy statements, customer-friendly notices, great access to information, solid cookie management and sound data sharing practices. While the companies may excel on paper, it’s hard to believe these are the top privacy-related companies based on public sentiment alone. It appears that the Ponemon Institute’s expert panel and the 6,486 US consumers surveyed have lost their long term memories. When it comes to privacy, eBay has had its fair share of controversies. Despite the fact that it recently announced plans to sell the majority of Skype, it was under eBay that the internet telephony company admitted to a privacy breach by its Chinese partner TOM Online. Not only was the company discovered to be filtering out and saving politically charged messages containing words like “Dalai Lama” and “Tibet”, but a security breech allowed others to gain access to those messages on TOM’s servers. A Citizen Lab report entitled Breaching Trust went so far as to accuse TOM Online of complying to government surveillance. While some of these actions may be considered necessary to offer services in a foreign country, US privacy advocates are adamant against all those who comply with the “Great Firewall of China”. While Verizon was one of the first companies brave enough to stand up against the RIAA’s file sharing crackdowns, in recent years the company has come under fire for its own privacy offenses. In early 2009, the company was ordered by the FCC to stop its aggressive marketing practices. When customers were porting from phone to cable services Verizon was illegally using proprietary client information in its last chance to retain fleeing customers. Meanwhile, in March the company was widely criticized in the blogosphere for its efforts to share customer info with affiliates through an overly complicated 45 day opt-out campaign. The information to be shared with affiliates included services purchased (including call records), billing info and location info. Although eBay and Verizon do have their merits as service providers, they hardly deserve to receive today’s accolades. It looks as if these announcements are more about rewarding privacy policies rather than practices.

Nailing Window Flanges Through Foam

Posted on by

first_img This article is only available to GBA Prime Members Over 30 years ago, when builders first began installing rigid foam wall sheathing, they had to figure out their own methods of fastening flanged windows. In 1982, when I sheathed my house with 1-inch-thick EPS, I installed “picture frames” of 1-inch lumber around each window rough opening. As it turned out, Joe Lstiburek was also building a foam-sheathed house in 1982, but he used a different approach.“Back then, we weren’t using OSB or plywood sheathing — just XPS foam sheathing, usually Dow blue board, with diagonal metal strapping for bracing,” Lstiburek told me recently. “At first, we would run a horizontal 1-inch thick board under the bottom flange of the window, to help support the weight of the window. Under the other three flanges, there was nothing but foam. We attached the windows to the studs with screws through the foam. We built thousands of houses this way, using foam up to 1½ inch thick. We never experienced any problems.”Eventually, Lstiburek realized he didn’t need to install any wood under the lower flange. “In the late 1980s, I took that practice with me to the U.S.,” said Lstiburek. “Then we stopped installing the horizontal board underneath — except for wide windows. If the window was wider than 4 feet, we’d still install a board under the bottom flange. But most of the windows we installed were basically hung from the flange fasteners.”I asked Lstiburek how he attaches flanged windows on walls with very thick foam. “I don’t have enough of a track record with 2-inch foam, so when we go above 1½-inch-thick foam, I recommend using side straps,” Lstiburek told me. (Side straps are also called masonry clips.) “You attach the windows at the sides of the rough opening with the straps. The side straps work with up to 4… Sign up for a free trial and get instant access to this article as well as GBA’s complete library of premium articles and construction details.center_img Start Free Trial Already a member?

Archer Deepika Kumari defeats South Korean Lee Sung Jin at World Cup Stage-II in Antalya

Posted on by

first_imgAce archer Deepika Kumari added another feather to her cap when she clinched the gold medal at the World Cup Stage-II in Antalya, Turkey, on Saturday.The teenager from Jharkhand got the better of South Korean Lee Sung Jin 6-4 in the women’s individual recurve final.With less than three months to go for the London Olympics, this title triumph will boost Deepika’s confidence as she goes for ultimate glory in the British capital.She showed composure to recover from 0-2 and 2-4 down to seal the deal.Lee, 27, is an experienced campaigner and had won the team gold medal at the 2004 Athens Olympics, as well as the silver in the individual event. She was crowned individual and team world champion in 2005 and was ranked No. 1 in the world in June 2006.The Korean won the team event at the World Cup Stage I in Shanghai last month.The Korean started well and hit three perfect 10s. Deepika could respond with just one 10 and lost the first set 30-27.But the Indian hit back with two 10s in the second set and won it 29-27 after Lee managed to hit the bull’s eye just once.The title match swung to and fro and Lee surged ahead again winning the third set 29-27 on the back of two 10s to Deepika’s one.But the 2010 Commonwealth Games gold medallist dug deep and shaded the fourth set 27-26 to force a decider.Deepika kept her cool and opened with a perfect 10. It was nail-biting stuff as the two finalists were level with one arrow left for each.advertisementDeepika hit a nine, which meant that Lee needed a nine of her own to ensure a shoot-off or a 10 to win it outright. She could manage only an eight, which meant that Deepika won the final set 28-27 and with it the gold medal.India is in the line for more glory in the men’s team recurve final when they take on Great Britain in the final on Sunday.The trio of Rahul Banerjee, Tarundeep Rai and Jayanta Talukdar – who are yet to qualify for the London Olympics – will face Laurence Godfrey, Simon Terry and Alan Wills in the gold medal clash. The Indians have already beaten the formidable South Koreans in the semi-finals.Wrestlers disappointIndian wrestlers failed to book any Olympic berth on the second day of the qualifying event in Helsinki. Freestyle wrestler Rajeev Tomar lost to Romania’s Chintoan Daniel (0-2, 0-5) in the quarterfinal. In Greco Roman category, five Indians were out and only Anil Kumar (96kg) was left in fray.last_img read more
