The former Inter Milan ace was fond of the midfielder during his time at the Johan Cruyff arena, with former manager Frank De Boer revealing just how much Bergkamp rated Van De Beek.‘Dennis started talking enthusiastically about a talent in his youth team. It was a boy who reminded Dennis of himself at that age. That was the signal for me to keep an eye on that guy.

One common word, transparent, from Coyle’s introductory press conferences at Syracuse and Minnesota provides both justification and irony behind his departure from SU less than a year after he took the job.“You’ll hear me talk about this a lot,” Coyle said when he was introduced at Syracuse on June 22 of last year. “We want to make sure we live in truth always and that we’re very honest and transparent in everything we do.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThat transparency, both the “family reasons” Coyle cited for leaving and the announcement from U of M on the base salary he’ll receive (one that SU never made), fairly justify why he would leave Central New York. But a lack of that same transparency — catching Boeheim, Babers, his ACC colleagues and according to Floyd Little via Syracuse.com, what seemed like the majority of SU’s athletic department by surprise — taint how he left.“Family reasons” is vague, but after Coyle teared up on Wednesday reminiscing about his daughter singing the Minnesota fight song as a toddler and recalling his family’s Midwest roots, it was clear that family matters were a motive.There’s also the $850,000 base salary he’ll be receiving over a five-year deal, which trumps the $567,776 base salary Daryl Gross received as Syracuse’s Director of Athletics. Coyle’s base salary at SU was never disclosed, but the prospect of Coyle being paid around $300,000 more in base salary than his predecessor was unlikely. Even though he didn’t openly say money was a reason for the move, the numbers provide a look into what had to be a major factor, and justifiably so.But 324 days ago, when Coyle stood at a podium in the Petty-Iocolano Football Wing at SU, he preached ideals that he was raised on, crediting former athletic directors at Kentucky and Minnesota (two athletic departments he had worked in prior) for cultivating him to be honest and transparent in everything he did.On Wednesday, Little and Boeheim both used a form of the word “shock” to describe their reactions to Syracuse.com, which also reported that SU deputy athletic director John Cunningham (who Coyle brought with him from Boise State) had just bought a house in nearby Manlius, New York. Syracuse deputy athletics director and senior woman administrator Kimberly Keenan-Kirkpatrick, who was also brought aboard by Coyle, recently told The Daily Orange that she was closing in on buying a house in the area, and as of Friday, only had to meet with a realtor to close the deal.Those same people who Coyle kept close when he crossed the country from Idaho to New York were among the others now at a distance as Coyle played this move close to the vest.When he stood at the podium on Wednesday, this time donning a tie with Minnesota colors instead of Syracuse ones, his own description of himself hadn’t changed.“It’s very important to me about being transparent and building trust and relationships,” he said.The relationships he built with coaches at Syracuse could’ve very well been strong and built on trust. Boeheim told Syracuse.com Wednesday that he liked Coyle a lot and that the 47-year-old had a firm grasp on the athletic department in his short tenure.But in the end, even though family and money gave justifiable motives to leave Syracuse, Coyle wasn’t the wholeheartedly transparent and honest person he has prided himself on being.“At the end of the night, you’ve got to put your head on your pillow or in the morning when you’re shaving or brushing your teeth, you know what’s going on,” Coyle said last June. “And I want to make sure that I know what’s going on if that makes sense.”It makes perfect sense. Coyle clearly knew what was going on. What doesn’t make sense, though, is why he kept all the others in the dark.

The move that surprised both was made by a man who is now halfway across the country with a new job.Mark Coyle bolted from his position as Syracuse director of athletics on Wednesday and he was already in Minnesota gearing up for his introductory press conference as the new Golden Gophers’ AD when Jim Boeheim and Dino Babers found out their now-former athletic director was gone. The move not only caught the head coaches of the two biggest sports at Syracuse off-guard, but also delayed a meeting of the Atlantic Coast Conference’s athletic directors meeting on Wednesday (according to an ESPN report) because the group was missing Coyle, who they didn’t know would soon be leading an athletic department in the Big Ten.MORE COVERAGE: Insight on Mark Coyle’s decision to leave Syracuse from former Minnesota director of athletics3 things we learned from Mark Coyle’s introductory press conference at MinnesotaSyracuse Athletics emails season-ticket holders following Mark Coyle’s departurePoll: Are you understanding of Mark Coyle’s rationale for leaving Syracuse?Jim Boeheim and Dino Babers surprised by departure of athletic director Mark Coyle Facebook Twitter Google+
Initial results of Cassini’s March 12 flyby of Enceladus have been published. You can watch a replay of today’s press briefing, read the blog, and read illustrated bulletins about the organic material, chemical signatures, hot spot locations, the stellar occultation (see also the Quicktime animation). Another article shows the plume locations. An astrobiologist (Chris McKay) added his speculations about life. The encounter preview page contains links to more information, including the flyby details (PDF), and the video page contains an eye-grabbing animation of the flyby sequence as it was programmed with each instrument’s activities. Here is the rundown on the major findings:The hot spots align predominantly right along the “tiger stripe” fractures at the south pole.The highest temperatures lie at certain points along the tiger stripes where plumes have been seen.Temperatures are hotter than earlier measurements: -135° F. (compared to a background temperature of less than -300° F.). This indicates a great deal of energy is being transferred from the interior.Some transverse warm areas were detected, oriented perpendicular to the stripes.The material jets out at over 1000 mph and was strong enough to produce a measurable torque on Cassini, 120 miles away.Though most of the jets consist of ice grains 1/10,000 of an inch in diameter, simple organics were detected (methane, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, formaldehyde) and some complex organics (propane, propyne, acetylene).No ammonia was found. Scientists had hoped that ammonia might depress the melting point of water and make the plumes easier to explain.The plumes appear to emerge from localized regions about half a tennis court in area, but extended along narrow strips within the tiger stripes.Though this brief press flurry did not mention it, Cassini also took a gorgeous mosaic of the north pole of Enceladus – including areas not previously imaged at high resolution. The mosaic can be seen at the Imaging Team catalog page for March 13. Leader of the INMS (Ion and Neutral Mass Spectrometer) instrument Hunter Waite (Southwest Research Institute, San Antonio) was most surprised that the chemical brew emerging from the plumes resembles that of a comet. Enceladus is obviously not a comet. He described the cocktail as being “like carbonated water with an essence of natural gas.” At this time, no one speculated about the origin of the plumes or how they could be maintained for billions of years. John Spencer of the CIRS team (Composite Infrared Spectrometer) did say that the temperatures could be hotter further down enough to allow for liquid water. Water – that was the magic word. The astrobiologists kicked into gear. “Enceladus has got warmth, water and organic chemicals, some of the essential building blocks needed for life,” said Dennis Matson, project scientist (cf. 03/19/2008). “We have quite a recipe for life on our hands, but we have yet to find the final ingredient, liquid water, but Enceladus is only whetting our appetites for more.” These thoughts were also echoed on the NASA TV press briefing as if scripted. Matson and astrobiologist Chris McKay in a related feature talked about the feasibility of exotic life and contrasted the “primordial soup theory” with the “deep sea vent theory.” Either theory would work on Enceladus, they claimed. The confidence that life is nearly inevitable contrasted starkly against an admitted background of ignorance and controversy: “We don’t know how long it takes for life to start when the ingredients are there and the environment is suitable, but it appears to have happened quickly on Earth,” the article said. Then, with a bow to a Darwin metaphor, it continued, “So maybe it was possible that on Enceladus, life started in a ‘warm little pond’ below the icy surface occurring over the last few tens of millions of years.” More observations will be needed, of course. And indeed, more observations are on the way. A series of close encounters with Enceladus has been planned during Cassini’s extended mission, which begins (pending final approval) on July 1. The next is in August. The cameras, which were not the prime instruments for the recent flyby, will have a chance to take extreme high-resolution photos of the tiger stripes, and the Cosmic Dust Analyzer (CDA), which failed to operate, will get one more optimal chance to collect geyser particles. Seven more close flybys are planned through 2009. The March 12 encounter dipped 30 miles from the surface at closest approach; some of the daring flybys to come will be even closer – fast, low, and maybe even more thrilling. The little 300-mile-wide moon Enceladus seems to be a strong contender for Best Actor of the Saturn awards.Good grief, Enceladus has nothing to do with life. This is the distracting emotional appeal like the scantily-clad woman beside the truck at the used car lot. NASA throws in the distraction at every mention of the word water in a vain belief that it will garner public support for the space program. As could be expected, right on cue, National Geographic News picked up on this theme as the major aspect of the story. Dave Mosher at Space.com even said “seeds of life found near Saturn.” Incredible. All they found was poison gas like methane and acetylene, folks! Go experiment with your barbecue. Write us if anything crawls out except the spider that took up residence there over the winter. The scientists totally avoided the age issue today. John Spencer has frankly admitted being completely baffled and embarrassed that the science community has no answer for where this little moon got its energy, or for how it could maintain it over billions of years. Their plight has only gotten worse since the discovery of the plumes in 2005. Recall that yesterday (03/25/2008, footnote to main entry) we highlighted a new paper in next month’s Icarus that struck down both tidal heating and radioactivity – the leading theoretical possibilities – as plausible sources of the heat. That makes the scientists’ focus on exotic life even more distracting, as if the emperor, once exposed, quickly points to the sky and waxes eloquent about how the cloud shapes appear so very lifelike. Let’s watch instead how his minions are going to robe their little embarrassment now that King Billions-of-Years has mooned the crowd.(Visited 10 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0
9 Books That Make Perfect Gifts for Industry Ex… News broke earlier this week of a new hack to Nintendo’s Wii U that would allow gamers to play unauthorized (read: pirated) games. Nintendo immediately disputed it. But whether it’s true or not, the Wii U will most certainly be hacked before long — and that fact tells us a lot about the increasingly tense arms race being waged between console manufacturers and hackers.Users have been hacking their consoles — in the sense of writing new games and implementing new functions of their operating systems — since the dawn of gaming. But back when the hardware of your 1970s era console only slightly resembled the inside of your computer, it was more of a hobby and less of a widespread movement. In fact, you can blame game developers, not ordinary users, for modern anti-hacking measures. The Atari 2600, released in 1977, had no software restrictions at all, and neither did competing consoles. This left developers free to create a flood of terrible and low quality games that overwhelmed consumers and led to the great video game crash of 1983 — the industry’s first major recession. Nintendo Clamps DownThat changed with the rise of Nintendo, which sought to reverse Atari’s openness in favor of tight control over console technology and a business model that relied on revenue from licenses sold to game developers. Nintendo sought to ensure high-quality games by retaining the sole right to approve them — and by locking out rivals and hackers who might create their own.Overnight, the challenge for hackers flipped from exploiting the potential of Atari’s open platform to finding ways to circumvent Nintendo’s lockout chip. It’s a cycle that’s continued to this day. Today, the Internet makes it easier than ever for hackers to collaborate and distribute exploits that allow even average players to bypass the lockdowns on their consoles.If the Wii U has indeed been hacked, then it will join the ranks of the Playstation 3, Playstation 2, XBox 360, Xbox, Wii, Nintendo DS, and PSP. All of these consoles can be jailbroken like iPhones, ready to run whichever programs their owners choose. That could mean running an operating system like Linux on your XBox, loading homebrew, or original, games on your Wii, or playing pirating copies of commercial games on your PS3. Hackers Rev Up The Arms Race…Obviously I don’t endorse piracy, and even at its most innocuous, console hacking lies in a legal gray area. (The Electronic Frontier Foundation is trying to change that.)But it’s hard to imagine that hackers will — or can — be stopped. Locking down consoles seems to do little, if anything, to slow down people intent on hacking anyway. The more restrictions console manufacturers apply, the more it appears to spur hackers into trying to remove them. Or just enrage them. For instance, Sony’s PlayStation Network —its online game service — was hacked shortly after Sony removed support for Linux on the PS3. Sony’s retroactive cutoff of the one place hackers could play around in the console could easily have incited the attacks in response. Of course, the PSN hack was very different from console “jailbreaks,” not least because it may also have resulted in credit-card fraud following the theft of user data.…And So Do Game CompaniesYet console manufacturers won’t give up, either. Their lockdowns are mostly ineffective against hackers, but they do plenty to make it not worth the average player’s time. If there was no lockdown at all, anyone could burn illegal copies of games on CDs to share.The big console makers also have an incentive to hold onto all the money they can get. Aside from pirates, consoles face a slew of big challenges, not least among them a robust second-hand game market they would dearly love to kill off and a profusion of 99-cent game apps that are frequently just as fun to play as the $60 monsters produced by big game developers.Of course, this entire mode of thinking could go out the window when the Ouya is out this summer. The world’s first “pre-hacked” console is a throwback to the fully open Atari. The very fact that it earned $8 million while still a concept shows a high demand for a open-source system, but time will tell if it inherits the Atari’s woes or finds a way to make it work.Photo courtesy of Nintendo Related Posts 4 Keys to a Kid-Safe App lauren orsini 12 Unique Gifts for the Hard-to-Shop-for People… Tags:#Console#gaming#hack#Homebrew#Wii U 5 Outdoor Activities for Beating Office Burnout

Born in Italy but adopted by Israel, she loves writing, traveling, and learning about innovative, tech-related trends. She doesn’t leave the house without a good book in her bag! AI: How it’s Impacting Surveillance Data Storage Virtual Private Networks (VPNs), despite their somewhat esoteric name, aren’t unknown to everyday users. Many people, including myself, use VPN apps or Chrome extensions like Hola to get onto sites that are blocked or otherwise inaccessible in certain countries.Many people find themselves using a VPN for the sake of convenience, very few implement one for the purpose of security.With the ever-growing popularity of IoT devices, however, it’s important to consider using a VPN as an extra security measure. IoT devices gather a variety of confidential data, which makes companies more than a little bit annoyed and apprehensive. For IoT devices within the home, a VPN helps prevent sensitive personal information from passing into the wrong hands. For businesses, it helps shield confidential company data from potential exposure.Preventing Eavesdropping and LeaksThe eavesdropping potential for IoT devices — particularly for smart home speakers like the Amazon Echo — has caused skepticism and even fear about IoT devices in general. South Park captured these fears in one of its latest episodes. It’s a spoof in which Amazon founder and CEO Jeff Bezos use Alexa to spy on and manipulate an unsuspecting public.Of course, South Park’s account is a hyperbole. But IoT devices, by their very nature, do collect hoards of personal or confidential information, leaving personal data especially vulnerable to hackers or spies. Within the home, for instance, a smart security camera gathers data about when family members are and aren’t home. A smart fitness device will know information about a person’s location, physical health and exercise habits — and what anyone in the house is talking about with their friends.VPNs not only encrypt data, but they also mask a user’s geographical location and IP address. Protecting this data helps prevent third parties, whether hackers, Internet Service Providers, government agencies, or others who might try to gather information about your activities. This means that other entities cannot infiltrate an IoT device and start eavesdropping or leaking confidential information.Protecting Against Common Attacks: Botnets and MITM AttacksA VPN can help protect against two common IoT attacks: botnets and MITM attacks.A botnet is a network of computers or other internet-connected devices that are infected with malware. The devices are controlled as a group, making it possible for hackers to launch large-scale attacks. These attacks can be conducted not just from computers but from all IoT devices as well; hackers can infect a large number of IoT devices with malware to create a botnet that they can use to debilitate a company or access its data. Using a VPN helps mitigate these risks by ensuring that the channel between an IoT device and its server are completely protected.Likewise, VPNs help prevent MITM (Man-In-The-Middle) attacks, which involve third parties intercepting network traffic — for example, between an IoT device and the network’s central access point. VPNs, by encrypting traffic, ensure that the data gathered from the IoT device is unreadable–even in the event that a malicious actor intercepts that traffic.VPNs and IoT Go Hand-in-HandWhile consumers and businesses love IoT devices for the sake of ease and convenience, there is a great deal of outcry over the security of such devices. No device, whether a smart home speaker or smart vacuum cleaner, is without such controversy.Business, as well as individuals, need to be cautious about the security loopholes that can come with such devices. For companies, there are plenty of recommended business VPN providers that will help ensure more secure operations without compromising on network speed. For everyday consumers, free VPN services, many of which are quite reputable and secure, work just as well.It’s ultimately the responsibility of the production side to make such devices more secure. As it stands, however, IoT devices have too little computing power to include inbuilt security features and encryption software.For now, it’s up to the users to take the first step in protecting themselves. In order to account for the lack of sufficient inbuilt security mechanisms, we need to make VPN use an inherent part of responsible IoT device use. Leveraging Big Data that Data Websites Should T…
Diego Costa is the first Chelsea player in 86 years to score in his first four gamesDiego Costa scored a hat trick as Chelsea opened an early gap atop the Premier League standings with a 4-2 win over Swansea, ending the visitors’ perfect start to the season.Costa made sure Chelsea recovered from John Terry’s early own goal as the Brazil-born Spain forward continued his stellar scoring form by making it seven goals in four league games since joining from Atletico Madrid in the offseason.He headed in an equalizer just before halftime and then added two more after the break before being substituted for another new signing in Loic Remy. The French forward added the fourth on his debut before Jonjo Shelvey pulled a late goal back for Swansea.Chelsea has a maximum 12 points from four games to sit three points above second-place Swansea. More importantly, it’s already five points ahead of Manchester City and six above Arsenal after two of its main title rivals drew 2-2 on Saturday.Chelsea plays City next weekend after midweek Champions League games for both sides.Costa started despite missing Spain’s European Championship qualifier with a hamstring injury, but it was Swansea that had the better start.Wayne Routledge volleyed wide and then dispossessed Nemanja Matic in a challenge to start the move which led to the opening goal.Ki Sung-yeung fed left-back Neil Taylor, whose cross was turned into the net by Terry.But Costa leveled when he met Cesc Fabregas’ corner with a low, firm header in the 45th. His second came in the 56th after another assist by Fabregas, who laid the ball back for Costa to finish clinically.advertisementBafetimbi Gomis had a chance to level but was unable to lift the ball over the onrushing Thibaut Courtois, who had a quiet second half in the Chelsea goal.Courtois watched from afar as Costa struck once more. Ramires scuffed his shot into the path of the striker, who pounced to complete his hat trick.?Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich smiled widely and joined in the applause as Costa departed after 72 minutes for Remy to make his debut.Remy, signed after Fernando Torres was sent on loan to AC Milan, quickly made his mark, tucking in Oscar’s pass.Shelvey pulled a goal back with four minutes to play after substitute Wilfried Bony’s incisive pass.
The Vision 2030 Jamaica Secretariat has completed work to develop the fourth Medium Term Socio-Economic Policy Framework (MTF), which underpins implementation of the country’s long-term National Development Plan.Programme Director for the Secretariat, which is based in the Planning Institute of Jamaica (PIOJ), Elizabeth Emanuel, says the document, which covers 2018 to 2021, has been reviewed by a wide range of stakeholders and will shortly be presented to Cabinet for review and approval.The Vision 2030 Jamaica – National Development Plan seeks to position the island to attain developed country status within 12 years and, in the process, make it the place of choice to live, work, raise families and do business.Speaking at the PIOJ’s quarterly media briefing at the Institute’s New Kingston head office on Wednesday (November 20), Mrs. Emanuel noted that the progress of Vision 2030 Jamaica’s implementation under successive three-year MTFs, between 2009 and 2018, was “mixed”.She pointed out that while there were challenges with crime and environmental sustainability, among other issues, there were improvements in key social and economic indicators.These, she informed, include: life expectancy at birth; the annual inflation rate; literacy rates; government effectiveness; and sustainable development planning.The Programme Director said Jamaica recorded gains in several notable areas between 2015 and 2018.These relate to human capital development; macroeconomic stability; a reduction in unemployment; increased use of renewable energy options; improved governance, particularly in relation to control of corruption, and government effectiveness; key economic sectors, particularly agriculture and tourism; and infrastructural development.“Of a total of 67 indicators that were monitored against medium-term targets under Vision 2030 Jamaica, 56 per cent have shown improvement over the baseline year 2007, based on results to 2017/18, while 36 per cent showed no improvement or worsened relative to the baseline year,” Mrs. Emanuel said, while noting that no up-to-date information/data was available for the remaining eight per cent.She advised that eight national strategic priorities have been shortlisted under the 2018-2021 MTF, in keeping with Vision 2030 Jamaica’s four Goals.These priorities are human capital development; social protection and social inclusion; values and attitudes; rule of law and timely justice; public-sector efficiency and effectiveness; economic stability, growth and employment; international competitiveness of industry structures; and environmental sustainability and climate change response.“These strategic priorities, along with their associated projects, programmes and activities, will assist in moving Jamaica towards a secure and prosperous future for our people,” Mrs. Emanuel said.The National Goals aim to ensure ‘Jamaicans are Empowered’; ‘The Jamaican Society is Secure, Cohesive and Just’; ‘Jamaica’s Economy is Prosperous’; and that ‘Jamaica has a Healthy and Natural Environment’.
Former Manchester United defender Gary Neville insists Liverpool are streets ahead of his old club following their 3-1 loss to the Reds at Anfield.The loss to Jurgen Klopp’s side has left the Red Devils, who are currently in sixth place, a huge 19 points off the top of the Premier League table, while they remain 11 points behind fourth placed Chelsea, who occupy the final UEFA Champions League spot.Neville hit out at his former club after the North-West derby in Merseyside, claiming the team do not have a central midfielder who is capable of picking a pass in the opposition’s half.Report: Origi cause Klopp injury concerns George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Divock Origi injury in today’s game against Newcastle is a cause for concern for Jurgen Klopp.Perhaps with one eye on Tuesday’s trip to Italy…“Liverpool are streets ahead. Streets. Not one of the United midfielders can pass a football. Not one of them,” Neville said, according to Sports Mole.“I find it staggering. United were awful. They were hanging in there for a bit but the only real team who were going to win the game was Liverpool. It’s not good enough.”United have won just seven of their 17 games in the league so far this season, and travel to Wales next weekend to face Cardiff City looking to return to winning ways.
