Italy down Belgium, Pique bails out Spain

first_imgSweden fightbackIreland and Sweden remain in the fight to make the last 16 after Ciaran Clark’s own goal cancelled out Wes Hoolahan’s brilliant finish for the Irish in Paris.Hoolahan met Seamus Coleman’s flighted ball with a controlled first-time strike three minutes into the second-half at the Stade de France to give Ireland a lead they fully deserved.However, having been kept quiet for long spells by the Irish defence, Sweden captain Zlatan Ibrahimovic created the equaliser in the 71st minute when his cutback was turned into his own net by Aston Villa defender Clark.“Of course the goal deflates you and there is disappointment in the dressing room, but I don’t think the players should be downhearted with their performance,” said Ireland manager Martin O’Neill“I think they should be absolutely thrilled with the way we played.”By contrast, Sweden boss Erik Hamren admitted his side need to improve drastically if they are to reach the knockout stages.“Even though we managed to come back and equalise, I am disappointed. We will need to play at 300 percent to get through,” he said.Share on: WhatsApp Pique to the rescueSpain’s quest to win an unprecedented third consecutive European championship got off to a winning start as Barcelona defender Gerard Pique overcame dogged Czech defence to seal a 1-0 win in Toulouse. Emanuele Giaccherini’s strike just after the half hour put future Chelsea manager Antonio Conte’s men in front before Southampton striker Pelle sealed the win with a thumping finish from Antonio Candreva’s cross.Belgium now face a crucial clash with Ireland on Saturday in Bordeaux if they are to avoid an embarrassing early exit.A star-studded Belgian attack containing Eden Hazard, Kevin de Bruyne and Romelu Lukaku were frustrated throughout by Italy’s ‘BBC’ defence of Andre Barzagli, Leonardo Bonucci and Giorgio Chiellini.“The defence was fantastic, I think we have the best back line in the competition, they made the difference,” said goalscorer GiaccheriniAt the other end, the Belgians were exposed when Bonucci’s long floated pass found Giaccherini in behind the Belgium defence to stroke his shot past the exposed Thibaut Courtois.Belgium upped the intensity after the break and twice came close when Lukaku clipped the post before his replacement Divock Origi headed over when unmarked from close range.But Italy continued to pose a threat on the counter-attack and sealed a massive three points when Pelle volleyed into an unguarded goal from Candreva’s unselfish cross. Pique, a target of abuse from Spain fans this season due to unflattering comments about Barca’s rivals Real Madrid, was the unlikely hero as he powered home man-of-the-match Andres Iniesta’s cross at the far post three minutes from time.“It is very important to start well,” said Pique.“We played well, controlled the game, created chances, but the ball didn’t want to go in. In the end I had the luck to score the goal.”Spain’s build-up to the tournament was rocked by reports last week claiming goalkeeper David de Gea had been involved in a sex scandal.But coach Vicente del Bosque kept faith in the Manchester United shot-stopper by handing him the gloves ahead of the legendary Iker Casillas.De Gea’s opposite number was much busier. Arsenal’s Petr Cech kept the European champions at bay with fine saves to deny Alvaro Morata, Jordi Alba and David Silva.Cech’s resistence was finally broken in uncharacteristic fashion when Pique was on hand to turn home Iniesta’s inch-perfect cross at the back post.However, there was still time for De Gea to justify his inclusion as he parried Vladimir Darida’s thunderous volley to safety. Belgium 0 Italy 2Spain 1 Czech 0Paris, France | AFP |Graziano Pelle sealed a stunning start to Euro 2016 for Italy as the Azzurri condemned highly-fancied Belgium to a 2-0 defeat on Monday.The Red Devils are the highest ranked side on show in France, but were punished by a ruthless Italian performance despite dominating for long spells of the Group E clash in Lyon.last_img read more

Brown hits triple-double at Armon Gilliam Camp

first_imgCOACHING STAFF SET TO GO WITH GUEST STARS, MYRON BROWN, OF THE MINNESOTA TIMBERWOLVES, AND GERALD WARRICK, OF THE HARLEM WIZARDS.To be honest, it wasn’t the same way he served up triple doubles to the teams that invaded Morrow Field House at Slippery Rock University that had a much different defensive game plan in mind…but to no avail.Some of you are too young to know, some of you are on the edge and kind of remember, many of you were like me and had the pleasure of seeing the one-man wrecking crew take flight in route to becoming the Rock’s greatest, all-time player. And yes, there have been some great ones.CAMP DIRECTOR COACH JAY LATIMER ARRIVES IN STYLE!The likes of Payton Tomlin, Jeff Lake, Mark Balbac, Larry Thompson, just to name a few. But none of them went on to become the conference all time leading scorer, university all time scorer, college All-American and Hall of Fame inductee as “Flyin’” Myron Brown did!How, you ask, does this tie into the 40th Annual Armon The Hammer “Hard Work” Basketball Camp?  Well I’ll tell you. In his early days, Myron Brown was that camper. Obvious talent. Unlimited energy and an infectious smile.last_img read more

Road guidelines for 2009, 2010

first_imgAccording to the new amendment, all claims arising from accidents that occurred from 1 August 2008 onwards will be administered under the amended Act. The major changes that will be introduced by the Act include claims relating to loss of earnings that will be capped at R160 000 per annum. This, according to the amended Act, means that irrespective of the actual loss, the annual loss will proportionally be calculated at an amount not exceeding R160 000 per annum. The booklets, which will be distributed at airports across the country, at Home Affairs offices and at the South African Reserve Bank, form part of a Department of Transport campaign scheduled to run during the two football tournaments. The Road Accident Fund Amendment Bill Act 56 of 1996 introduced a number of limitations on the Fund’s liability to pay for certain types of compensation. It is expected that these limitations will improve the organisation’s financial position to ensure its ability to pay out future claims. A new booklet will give people visiting South Africa for the 2009 Fifa Confederations Cup and 2010 Fifa World Cup a clear description of local road regulations, as well as procedures to be followed in case of any accidents on the road. “The claimant will need to be assessed by a medical practitioner and such a practitioner must use the American Medical Association Guides to assess serious bodily injuries,” says the amended Act. “The booklet will further help us to regulate claims by tourists in an event where they are involved in a car accident while in the country as this will help the Road Accident Fund in situations where large amounts of money have to be paid to foreign tourists.” The amended Act’s objective is to pay compensation for loss or damage wrongfully caused by the driving of motor vehicles.center_img She added that the booklet would encourage tourists to use public transport, both to curb the congestion on the country’s roads as well as to minimise possible accidents. RAF limitations General damages, however, will only be paid out if the injuries have been assessed to be “serious injuries”, while compensation will be paid out in a lump sum. “With the booklet in mind, we will be able to instil traffic rules and regulations especially to those tourists who are used to left-hand drive vehicles, so that they know the implications when using our roads,” Department of Transport official Matshidiso Setai told BuaNews this week.

How IoT is improving the value of industrial automation in oil and gas

first_imgRelated Posts ReadWrite Sponsors Tags:#featured#Hillcorp Energy#IoT#IoT Analytics#Microsoft#Rockwell Automation#top IoT is proving to be a game-changer for automation companies as a variety of industries begin employing IoT-enabled architectures and experimenting with how IoT solutions can reap new benefits.One example is Rockwell Automation, a provider of industrial automation products, including control systems and devices, who recently shared how it aids in the collection, integration, and organization of sensor data from remote equipment to enable real-time decisions, predictive analysis, and preventive maintenance in the fuel industry.The Milwaukee, Wisconsin-based company describes in an online report how it teamed up with Microsoft to bring IoT solutions to three different companies to keep fuel continuously moving as it passes through countless pumps, holding tanks, meters, monitors, and hoses around the globe during mining, refining, transport, and sales.In extractionIn coastal Alaskan waters, Houston, Texas-based Hilcorp Energy Company is using electrical pumps on its oil-drilling platforms that employ variable speed drives. To avoid costly pump failures, the drives are connected to the cloud and constantly monitored in a command room in Cleveland, Ohio. Sensor data on pressure, temperature, flow rates, and other factors is sent to engineers on digital dashboards so they can verify that the equipment is working properly and respond quickly to any problems.“The last time we had a well trip offline, within five minutes we had a phone call telling us what broke, what to look at, and how to test it,” Hilcorp’s facilities engineer Mark McKinley says in the report. “It saved six hours of troubleshooting or more, and we got right back online.”In transportationOnce extracted from beneath the ocean floor, the crude begins the journey to refineries on its way to your local gas pump via a vast network of ships, barges, pipelines, trains, and trucks. Along with that network is equipment that measures the product amount as it’s transferred from one mode to the next. Trigg Technologies, a Pampa, Texas-based company that gathers transfer data, upgraded its remote equipment with sensors transmitting to the cloud, enhancing remote maintenance, product monitoring, inventory, and electronic invoicing.“The ability to automate these transactions across thousands of machines and countless miles is transformational for this industry,” says Doug Weber, Rockwell Automation’s business manager of remote application monitoring. “Now all parties involved can have immediate electronic records of transactions, real accountability in these remote locations, immediate awareness for maintenance and diagnostics, and new levels of information about every transaction.”With energy consumersA major oil company has also launched an IoT project to cloud-enable the sale of liquid natural gas at filling stations, bringing a new level of predictive and other analysis to suppliers. Gateway appliances at each station collect data from the fuel pumps and send it to a cloud platform that enables monitoring of consumption rates and inventory. Long-term, the project is expected to result in design improvements for pumping stations and other equipment.How can other industries and companies start an IoT solution?The petroleum industry has been an early adopter of IoT systems because of the efficiency and improved performance that industrial IoT brings is particularly valuable to high-value assets that are remote, says IoT Analytics, a market insight and competitive intelligence provider headquartered in Hamburg, Germany.The interconnectedness and expansive range of the fuel industry highlight the need for creating IoT systems that are interoperable and secure. Only then can the full value of IoT be realized.In a recently released white paper, IoT Analytics provides a roadmap of decision points that can be valuable to other industries and companies. Its 31-page Guide to IoT Solution Development, which was developed in cooperation with Microsoft, shares research that demonstrates the importance of taking the right path through IoT solution challenges.Ensuring interoperabilityInteroperability, which is dependent upon communication protocols and standardization level, is the ability of different IT systems and software to communicate, exchange, and use data. It’s key to crafting a successful and resilient solution, regardless of whether an organization builds its IoT system in-house or engages a vendor.When assessing a solution’s interoperability capabilities, it’s important to consider the physical layer (how bits are transmitted and received over the medium), the network layer (how data packets are securely transported from device to cloud), and the application layer (how the data is taken in and used in applications).IoT Analytics recommends building on a standardized ecosystem, illustrating how using industrywide specifications “ensures adhering devices can securely and seamlessly interact with one another, regardless of the underlying hardware, operating system, chipset, or transport protocol.”More help in this area may be on the way. The white paper explains how a group of technology rivals has banded together as the Open Connectivity Foundation, which could result in global standardization, reducing the current patchwork of specifications.Securing the systemThe IoT Analytics guide pays particular attention to the security of systems, of paramount importance across all industries and companies. The guide concludes that any organization needs to “map the attack surface…end-to-end using a systematic approach” and implement best security practices, which are listed in the guide. Combining hardware and software solutions that go from device to cloud and cover everything in between will enable more seamless security, the research found.Possible security threats include:Spoofing identity (using another’s credentials to enter the system)Tampering (replacing software with malware)Repudiation (changing authoring information of malicious actions to log wrong data to log files)Information disclosure (exposing sensitive information to unauthorized parties)Denial of service (flooding devices with unsolicited traffic rendering them inoperable)Elevation of privilege (forcing a device to do more actions than it is privileged to do)Security is one of five “layers” IoT Analytics recommends in its structured approach to development, along with the device, communication, cloud services, and application layers.For more information on this topic, download the 31-page Guide to IoT Solution Development for free on the IoT Analytics website.

Report Lakers Coach Mike Browns Job In Jeopardy

Despite receiving an endorsement from executive vice president Jim Buss, Los Angeles Lakers coach Mike Brown needs his team to make an about-face from a terrible start to the season or he could be fired.Sources told that the Lakers, while having publicly expressed support for Brown in the wake of a 1-4 start, are privately anxious about what they have seen – or not seen – of the team so far. The Lakers a six-game homestand against inferior competition. And should the team continue to struggle, it could be Brown’ undoing.The homestand begins Friday night against the Golden State Warriors who’ll be without injured center Andrew Bogut and reserve Brandon Rush. The Lakers will also face Sacramento, San Antonio, Phoenix, Houston and Brooklyn.In Brown’s defense, the Lakers have had a healthy Steve Nash in the lineup for only 1½ of their five games so far because of a leg injury. Dwight Howard continues to rec0ver from the back surgery and Kobe Bryant has also been playing through a foot ailment.All that and still, according to’s source, the team’s hierarchy want to see vast improvement in a short period of time.The Lakers are off to the worst start in the Western Conference despite carrying the league’s largest payroll at just over $100 million, which would trigger an estimated luxury-tax bill at season’s end of nearly $30 million.“I have no problems with Mike Brown at all,” Buss said. “He just works too hard and he’s too knowledgeable for this to be happening.“So either the (new Princeton offensive) system is flawed or something’s going on. Or, like the Triangle, it’s very hard to pick up and understand. I’m not a basketball mind like he is or the players are, and the players are fine with it, so I just have to be patient.”The challenge there is that heading into the season, Buss acknowledged that “this team was built to win now,” raising questions as to how patient the Lakers are willing to be.“You have to give it time to understand (what’s going on),” Buss said. “I don’t know if there’s an actual game total that would make me impatient. I know if we’re 1-15, I don’t think that would be very good. I’m sure that would be a panic button. But at this time, I’m fine with what’s going on. It’s a learning process for the players. As long as everybody is on the same page, I think we’re fine.”After practice Thursday, Bryant admitted that he’s dismayed by the first 1-4 start in his 17-year career but labeled himself as Brown’s “biggest supporter” in the organization.“For us, (belief is) the biggest thing right now, especially while we’re trying to find our way,” Brown said.Said Howard: “Right now, there’s a lot of noise. We’re trying to figure out how to play with each other. We’re trying to figure out where we’re going to get our shots. Everybody is trying to just figure each other out and how we can put this thing together. So once the noise is settled, we can all just have a clear mind. We’ll be fine.” read more
