Wenger; Draxler talk is ‘UFO sighting’

first_img0Shares0000LONDON, January 17- Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger was in jovial mood on Friday as he said suggestions the Premier League leaders were about to sign Germany’s Julian Draxler were comparable to UFO sightings.The Frenchman, a long-time critic of the January transfer window, was responding to reports that Schalke midfielder Draxler had already visited Arsenal’s training complex in Hertfordshire, north-west of London. “That (rumour) is like an unidentified flying object — some see them everywhere,” Wenger told reporters on Friday.“Are we close to signing anybody? At the moment I would say no.”Meanwhile Wenger said the present mid-season transfer window needed either to be abolished or at least altered drastically.“Either you scrap it completely, or you leave it open until as long as possible to the last four games,” he said.Wenger’s team head into Saturday’s match at home to Fulham a point in front of free-scoring Manchester City at the top of the table.Manuel Pellegrini’s expensively-assembled side are on the cusp of scoring a hundred goals in all competitions so far this season after a 5-0 thrashing of Blackburn Rovers in their FA Cup third round replay this week.Wenger said he accepted Arsenal, under the control of US businessman Stan Kroenke, would always be outgunned financially as long as City were owned by Sheikh Mansour, a billionaire based in the oil-rich Gulf state of Abu Dhabi.But he said that was no reason why Arsenal couldn’t match them on the pitch.“In terms of their resources, no (we cannot compete) because they have unlimited resources. But with our resources available, we are ready to fight,” said Wenger.“I think what is very interesting is what we want to do and how we want to play. Can we beat these teams?“It is even greater because they are top quality, which I acknowledge, but we want to beat them and therefore with our style, we need to get our resources out there in every game to have a chance to do it.”As for suggestions Arsenal, who last won a major trophy in 2005, won’t last the distance in the title race, a dismissive Wenger said: “Let people make Man City or Chelsea the favourites, we can accept that.“The reality is that tomorrow (Saturday) afternoon at 3pm, that is where you can perform and where we have an opportunity to convince people that we are serious about what we want to achieve.”The 64-year-old Wenger, now the longest-serving manager currently in the Premier League following the retirement of Manchester United boss Alex Ferguson, is out of contract at the end of this season.Asked if he’d signed a new Arsenal deal, Wenger said: “There is always a point where you have to decide, of course.“There is a point where you have to decide and there is a point where you have to make your decision public.”Pressed on whether he’d yet made that decision, Wenger replied: “You can take that sentence the way you want it.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Red-light cameras reducing number of tickets issued

first_imgLANCASTER – Fewer motorists were caught running red lights last month at intersections equipped with cameras – a trend city officials say they hope will continue. Last month, 374 citations were issued, compared with 463 the previous month, when the program began. “People are doing what we hoped: They are changing their driving habits and slowing down,” said Randy Williams, Lancaster’s public works director. Under the program, motorists who run red lights are photographed by cameras installed at three locations – eastbound Avenue K at 10th Street West and east- and westbound Avenue J at 15th Street West. Mounted two to each leg of an intersection, the cameras are triggered by inductive loops, electrical wires buried beneath the asphalt. The loops detect cars about to enter the intersection after the light has turned red and trigger the cameras. The cameras were installed in September, but during the first month of operation only warnings were issued. In the first two months that citations could be issued, the cameras detected 2,237 possible violations. However, before a citation is issued, each photograph is reviewed to determine whether in fact a violation occurred. For example, in some cases, drivers had come to a stop in time, but the front end of their vehicle went past the line. In those cases, citations were not issued. In other cases, photos were not clear on either the drivers’ faces or the license plates of their cars. The fine for running a red light is $361, of which the city receives $151. The city uses the money to pay the camera vendor, Redflex Traffic Systems Inc., and to pay for deputy staff time. City officials believe the camera program will be self-supporting. In Santa Clarita, red-light cameras were installed in July 2004 at five intersections. In the first year that tickets were given, more than 5,800 drivers were cited, while injury crashes declined 30 percent at those intersections, city and sheriff’s officials said. In about 40 percent of the cases in Santa Clarita, drivers were talking on cell phones when the violations occurred. Lancaster officials said they do not have statistics on how many of their violations involve cell phones. The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department recorded 203 collisions in Lancaster in 2005 related to vehicles running red lights, up 27.7 percent from 2004. The 2005 red-light collisions caused 238 injuries and four deaths. In a separate but related effort, the city placed 22 speed-warning signs around schools to get motorists to slow down. james.skeen@dailynews.com (661) 267-5743 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Until Jan. 1, the city is issuing warnings only for those cameras. So far, 41 warnings have been issued from photos from those two cameras, Williams said. The city also is studying whether to try the cameras out at Avenue K and 30th Street West. last_img read more

A decade of free elections: IEC

first_img3 August 2007South Africa’s Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) is marking ten years of administering successful elections locally and assisting in elections around the continent by launching a book documenting its endeavours and also raising public awareness to “go green” amongst others.IEC chairperson Brigalia Bam said in a statement this week that the commission’s tenth anniversary was an important event in the history of the organisation, providing an opportunity to raise its profile and “showcase the remarkable work done by the organisation behind the scenes and demonstrate the value added by the IEC”.Established in terms of South Africa’s Constitution, the electoral body was created in 1997, at a time when the country did not have a national common voters’ roll.The IEC said the first voters’ roll compiled in 1999 contained more than 18-million names and the current roll has grown to more than 20-million prospective voters.As South Africa did not have any voting districts, the IEC created 14 650 voting districts around the country between June and November 1998, for the first voter registration drive. The number of voting districts in the country has since increased to 18 873.As part of its anniversary celebrations, the IEC will launch a book documenting its first ten years in pictures, create a mobile photo exhibition of its work, as well as hold national and provincial celebratory campaigns.The commission has also committed itself to a “go green” campaign together with its partners to raise environmental awareness.The IEC lists some other notable achievements including the successful declaration of “free and fair” results following four general elections in South Africa, the absence of violence associated with electoral contestation and interacting with the general public through its electoral and democracy education programmes.The commission said these and many other milestones would be highlighted between July and November this year, by way of a dedicated programme of activities that would pay tribute to the organisation’s contribution to the current macro political stability in South Africa.“The organisation is mindful of a number of challenges that are still faced on the ongoing journey of the country’s democracy,” the IEC said.“The tenth anniversary celebrations will therefore also create an opportunity to reflect on these challenges.”Source: BuaNewslast_img read more

The New Stack: SaaS, Cloud Computing, Core Technology

first_imgDuring the PC era, the technology stack was controlled by Microsoft Windows and Wintel – the “Wintel” era. We are now entering a new era, called variously ‘Cloud’ or ‘SaaS’ or ‘Enterprise 2.0’. In this era everything is different – the stack, the players and the potential for value creation. Let’s outline the basic shape of this emerging era, in particular defining what makes up the new stack.The New Stack Has 3 LayersAt the Top – SaaS: these are the end user services that we actually interact with, such as Basecamp. This is the “final mile”. This is what we used to call application software, vertical systems or value added systems. Although SaaS is sometimes also used to describe the layer below, we prefer to label the top as SaaS and the middle as Cloud Computing. Typically this layer has had thousands of companies. These are our bootstrapped Gritty Entrepreneurs. In the Middle – Cloud Computing: this is the Cloud where we witness the “sound and fury” of BigCos battling it out – Amazon, Google, Microsoft, IBM and others. This layer is the most fluid and where all the deals are. This layer can be seen as two layers, but the difference is very blurry. Some SaaS companies create some “middleware” that they position in this layer. Some start-ups create middleware as their primary focus, with an end game of getting acquired by one of the Cloud BigCos. Over time, these will tend to get rolled up into a few big platforms that compete by providing higher levels of abstraction for developers. At the Bottom – Core Technology: this is what we might call “traditional Silicon Valley”, hard core patent-protected technology sold to big companies that use it as part of their stack. Arista, the latest venture from Andreas Bechtolsheim falls into this category.Spectators And PlayersMost of us are spectators in the Cloud Computing game. It is fun to watch the big guys duke it out and ReadWriteWeb will continue to report on that. Entrepreneurs need to understand the strategies of the big players who will be their “platform partner”. But we all have lots of opportunities to be players at the top of the stack, in the SaaS layer. This is where there are low barriers to entry, massively reduced R&D costs and incumbents who will be slow to embrace SaaS for fear of cannibalizing their core business.Has The Stack Value Inverted?Traditionally, value was at the bottom of the stack, which is why Microsoft and Intel were so dominant in the past. With a few notable exceptions like SAP, the top of the stack tended to be smaller companies. It is possible that this has inverted, that the real value is now at the top of the stack and not at the bottom. For example, Arista will probably be very successful, but their market will be limited to the few companies who build huge data centers. Those clients will place huge orders but will also have a lot of negotiating clout. Lock-In And Network Effects?So maybe the value is all in the middle now? This is certainly where all the action is today. The two big questions at this layer are:1. Lock-in? How easy will it be to move your SaaS service between Amazon AWS, Google App Engine, Microsoft Azure and other contenders? Today there is quite a lot of technical lock-in, you cannot move from one to another without some re-coding. But is that a big deal? No, because a) any Platform that jacks up prices will get hammered by their competitors and b) when you do need to move, it may require some coding changes but the move is transparent to end users. So, very little lock-in.2. Viral Network Effects? Market leaders will get a lower cost of sale, but there is no social media viral effect at the Cloud Computing Platform layer. Without Lock-In or Viral Network Effects, this layer will be commoditized. It will be very, very big but it will be a thin margin commodity business that is all about scale.So The SaaS Cream Floats To The Top?This is our theory. The value is with the small SaaS companies in the “final mile” interacting with end users. This is what we are seeing with our bootstrapped Gritty Entrepreneurs. What About Players Across Layers?Next week I will be at Dreamforce, the Salesforce.com annual event in San Francisco. Salesforce.com is the SaaS pioneer that defined the market. At some stage they decided that being on the top layer only was not enough and they created their Force.com “platform” on which others could create applications.IBM also operates at many layers of the stack. But they do so with separate divisions that would be large companies in their own right.It will be interesting to see how this stack evolves and specifically how well Salesforce.com succeeds with their mission to operate at both the top and the middle layer. bernard lunn Related Posts Tags:#enterprise#NYT#web Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hostingcenter_img 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai…last_img read more

House Hearing Explores Debate Over Free Access to Journal Articles

first_imgThe fight over mandating free access to papers based on research funded by taxpayer dollars is again heating up in Washington, D.C. Yesterday, lawmakers discussed expanding the National Institutes of Health’s (NIH’s) “public access” policy to other science-funding agencies. Although the hearing didn’t focus on a specific bill, it touched on two dueling proposals introduced in Congress in recent years. The Federal Research Public Access Act (FRPAA), H.R. 5037, builds on NIH’s 2-year-old requirement that grantees submit their peer-reviewed manuscripts to the free PubMed Central database for posting within 12 months after publication in a journal. (The 12-month embargo is to protect journals’ subscriptions.) The FRPAA bill would extend the policy to 11 other research agencies and shorten the delay to 6 months. Meanwhile, a separate bill, H.R. 801, would block such policies by changing U.S. copyright law. At yesterday’s hearing of the Information Policy, Census, and National Archives Subcommittee of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, chaired by Representative Lacy Clay (D–MO), several witnesses expressed concerns that public-access policies could harm journals.

Policies like NIH’s could cause librarians to cancel subscriptions and “substantially weaken an area of our economy,” he argued. Adler added that there are already ways for patient groups to get access to articles. Steve Breckler, executive director for science for the American Psychological Association, worried that even a 12-month delay before posting papers could harm journals in his field because readership of psychology papers remains high for years after they’re published. But other witnesses contended that students, patients’ families, and industry scientists are being deprived of access to research articles. Nobel Prize–winning biologist Richard Roberts, chief scientific officer of New England Biolabs in Massachusetts, claimed that small biotech companies often can’t afford subscriptions to all the journals they need. This “is actually impeding science,” he said. Neuroscientist Sophia Colamarino said she was cut off from reading journal articles when she left Salk Institute to become vice president for research for the group Autism Speaks, which funds autism research. NIH’s David Lipman, who oversees PubMed Central, said the site now draws 420,000 users each weekday and is speeding discovery by adding links to related articles and genomic databases. Lipman said NIH would be “pleased to help any agency” use the PubMed Central platform to create its own repository. Besides Clay, only three members of the 11-member subcommittee showed up for portions of the more than 2-hour hearing. Representative Carolyn Maloney (D–NY) sympathized with the publishers, worrying that “we have to protect our intellectual property” and that freely available papers are equivalent to “research that’s immediately being sent to another country.” Although the House FPRAA bill has been referred to the subcommittee, no hearing on the bill has been scheduled, and prospects for passage this year seem slim. Public-access advocates are hoping that the White House will act on its own by issuing an executive order or memo requiring that agencies develop public-access policies. *This article has been corrected to state that before Sophia Colamarino joined Autism Speaks, she was with the Salk Institute, not Stanford University, where she is a current faculty member.last_img read more

Arsenal boss Unai Emery admits to watching Peaky Blinders to improve English

first_imgAdvertisementYou might be couch surfing your netflix and having thoughts along the lines that you’re wasting your time but Arsenal boss Unai Emery would have contrary opinions to that. The Spaniard admitted that he’s watching BBC and Netflix’s Peaky Blinders TV show to improve his English.The 47 year old manager replaced Arsene Wenger at Arsenal and has been on a succesful start to his reign. While he’s working wonders at the training ground, he’s taking intensive language courses to improve his English off the pitch.“It [Peaky Blinders] is good but it is difficult [to understand] from Birmingham. And it’s very aggressive. But it’s good, it’s good,” Emery said.Apart from his interest in British television shows , the former PSG manager also spoke of his passion , i.e. football.The 47-year-old, who speaks in English at his news conferences, said: “In each profession, you need to feel passion for that in order to give it your best performance. Football is my passion.“It’s my work, but I don’t think every day that it is my work, it’s my best hobby. I feel very big the passion.
