I have one more match that I’d like to be the winner of,” Williams said. “I have to go out there and take it and play well.”The person on the other side of the net also has experience playing in the last weekend on Centre Court. The 23-year-old Muguruza played for the title in 2015, losing to Venus’ little sister, Serena Williams.Serena isn’t at Wimbledon this year because she is pregnant and taking the rest of the season off. But Venus will likely be checking in with her for some advice ahead of Saturday’s match.“Serena did play her in a final,” Venus said. “I definitely will ask her. I’m sure she’s going to give me hopefully some things that will make a difference for me in the match.”ADVERTISEMENT “I’m definitely in the position I want to be in,” Williams said. “It’s a long two weeks. Now, knocking on the door for a title. This is where I want to be.”Williams has quite a history at the grass-court major, winning her first Grand Slam title in London in 2000.

View comments Muguruza, however, beat Serena to win the French Open title in 2016. And she’s expecting the same kind of atmosphere despite the unfamiliar opponent.“I don’t think it’s going to be different. A final is a final,” Muguruza said. “Only one’s going to win. … The racket has to talk.”Besides her experience on the court, Muguruza will also have some experience behind her off it. She has been working with 1994 Wimbledon champion Conchita Martinez recently.“I think she’s helping me to deal with the stress of the tournament, because it’s a long tournament,” Muguruza said. “So she just knows how to prepare, how to train, what to do.“Not that I’m doing something different, honestly. But to have her by my side gives me also this little confidence on having someone that has won before.”Williams and Muguruza have played each other four times before, and the American has won three of them. They have never before played on grass, though.“It’s good that she’s played her before, and that she’s beaten her. So she knows what’s to come,” Martinez said of Saturday’s match. “She just has to play tennis, and not worry about who’s favored or who isn’t favored. She needs to think about the next point and nothing else.”When Martinez won at Wimbledon for her only major, she beat 37-year-old Martina Navratilova in the final. Williams is the oldest Wimbledon finalist since then.Age, however, seems to be an advantage for Williams.“I think it’s wonderful to have the opportunity to play well and to be strong and have experience,” Williams said. “So I think experience can either work against you or for you. I like to think it’s working for me.” Venus Williams of the United States returns to Britain’s Johanna Konta during their Women’s Singles semifinal match on day nine at the Wimbledon Tennis Championships in London Thursday, July 13, 2017.

first_imgShikhar Dhawan’s thumb injury and the subsequent stint on the sidelines has come as a big blow to India, leaving the team management concerned about the combination ahead of some crunch matches at the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019.Dhawan was hit on the thumb during his match-winning knock of 117 vs Australia at The Oval in London on Sunday. While Dhawan carried on to make a spectacular hundred after taking the knock as early as the 9th over, it was revealed after the match that the India opener suffered a fracture.Considering the success Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan have achieved for India in ICC tournaments, the news of Dhawan’s injury was a cause for concern with several former cricketers conceding it was a setback for Team India.Initial reports suggested a stint on the sidelines for at least 3 weeks putting Dhawan at the risk of being ruled out of World Cup 2019. However, the Board of Control for Cricket in India confirmed on Tuesday that Dhawan would be put under observation. No replacement has been named yet but Rishabh Pant has been asked to join the World Cup squad in England as a back-up option.As it turns out, Shikhar Dhawan is in a positive frame of mind despite having suffered an injury after a good start to his World Cup 2019 campaign.Dhawan was spotted at India’s training session in Nottingham on Thursday. While he did not take part in the drills, Dhawan was seen walking around the field at Trent Bridge, wearing a grey hoodie.advertisement#WATCH Shikhar Dhawan at India’s practice session at Trent Bridge, Nottingham ahead of their #ICCCricketWorldCup2019 match against New Zealand, tomorrow. He had suffered a fracture on his thumb in India’s match against Australia on 9 June & has been ruled out for at least a week. pic.twitter.com/4PjV3dvH6jANI (@ANI) June 12, 2019Dhawan is certainly going to miss India’s 3rd World Cup 2019 match against New Zealand scheduled for Thursday in Nottingham amid prediction of a massive rain threat.Speaking to the press on the eve of India’s match vs table-toppers New Zealand, assistant coach Sanjay Bangar said the team expects Shikhar Dhawan to recover in 12-14 days. Bangar also added that India haven’t named a replacement yet as they don’t want to lose a “precious” player like Dhawan.Keep in mind, Sunil Gavaskar was mighty impressed with Shikhar Dhawan’s pain threshold after the India opener braved the hit on the thumb to score his 3rd World Cup hundred on Sunday.Meanwhile, Dhawan had also let his guard down and joined his teammates, including MS Dhoni, Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul, as they caught up with Salman Khan’s latest release, Bharat at a Nottingham movie hall.Earlier in the day, Dhawan had also put out a motivational tweet on his page, taking lines from Dr. Rahat Indori’s poem.”Kabhi mehek ki tarah hum gulon se udte hain… Kabhi dhuyein ki tarah hum parbaton se udte hain… Ye kainchiyaan humein udne se khaak rokengi… Ke hum paron se nahin hoslon se udte hain,” Dhawan tweeted.Also Read | Shikhar Dhawan joins MS Dhoni, Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul to watch Bharat in NottinghamAlso Read | World Cup 2019: David Warner hits 3rd successive ODI hundred vs PakistanAlso See:last_img read more

first_imgThe province is relocating its agriculture department headquarters from Halifax to Truro-Bible Hill in a move that brings good jobs and affirms that area as the provincial centre for agricultural excellence. The province announced today, April 30, that it will move 34 head office positions to Truro-Bible Hill, joining the 141 Department of Agriculture staff already located there. “Truro-Bible Hill has historically been a focal point for agriculture, from the Nova Scotia Agricultural College to the various commodity groups and federal agricultural agencies which call it home,” said Agriculture Minister John MacDonell. “This move will allow the department to consolidate operations to provide better service to farmers and the agriculture industry, while bringing good jobs to grow the rural economy.” The department’s headquarters staff will move to Truro-Bible Hill by the end of 2012. “It makes sense to have the Department of Agriculture located here in central Nova Scotia,” said Beth Densmore, president of the Nova Scotia Federation of Agriculture. “It will improve accessibility for farmers and improve dialogue among industry stakeholders.” Bob Taylor, Mayor of the Municipality of Colchester, said the announcement is great news. “This is not only a great boost to our local community and our local economy, but offers significant support to our all-important agriculture industry, not only for the present, but for promoting the innovative programs that are so important for the industry’s future.” “This move makes sense for both the provincial government and for the communities that will now benefit from good jobs and valuable programs,” said Jimmy MacAlpine, president of the Union of Nova Scotia Municipalities . “I applaud the provincial government for moving the agriculture department headquarters to Truro-Bible Hill.” The Department of Agriculture has more than 220 staff provincewide in 13 communities around the province. This is one of three moves announced today by the province.last_img read more

first_imgOTTAWA – Unexpectedly intense ice conditions meant anxious archeologists had to limit their exploration of the two Franklin expedition shipwrecks earlier this month.Persistent ice off the Yukon and Alaskan coasts caused a three-week delay for Parks Canada underwater archeologists just to access the wreck of HMS Erebus at its gravesite in shallow waters off the coast of King William Island in Nunavut.The ice also meant they had to leave more than a week ahead of schedule, leaving them just a day and a half to explore the wreck or risk their research vessel being stuck in the ice — much like Sir John Franklin’s ships were more than a century and a half ago.“This proved to be the worst ice conditions we have seen,” said Ryan Harris, a senior underwater archeologist with Parks Canada.The team has been part of the Franklin work for more than a decade, ever since renewed efforts to find both HMS Erebus and HMS Terror began in 2007. Erebus was finally located in 2014 and the Terror in 2016.The Franklin expedition has been one of the world’s most enduring mysteries after the two ships and their crews disappeared in the 1840s while trying to map the Northwest Passage. The two ships may hold the clues to finally tell exactly what happened to the expedition, but thus far they have given up few of their secrets.Before this year, divers brought up 65 artifacts from Erebus including its bell, some dishes and part of a boot that contained DNA. Those 65 artifacts belong to the United Kingdom, which was the legal owner of both ships under international law because they were sailing under the British flag when they went missing.However earlier this year Canada and the U.K. completed a negotiation for Canada and the Inuit to take joint ownership of the ships and the rest of their contents. It means the nine artifacts brought up this month are the first to be owned by Canada and the Inuit Heritage Trust.This year’s artifacts, including a stoneware pitcher and a navigational tool, are now in a lab in Ottawa where they are being analyzed and tested for possible clues like DNA and then will be preserved for eventual display in a museum.Terror has not been explored in much detail yet and this year’s plan to use tide and current gages to get a better understanding of the site was kiboshed by the bad weather. Terror was found about 24 metres under the surface of the water in Terror Bay, which was named in the ship’s honour 118 years ago even though nobody knew then the ship was hiding in the bay.It’s location makes it more protected from elements and is in pristine condition with windows still intact and all interior spaces enclosed.Erebus lies in about 12 metres of water and is more susceptible to storm swells that could damage it. In just the last year another part of the upper deck of Erebus fell away exposing deck beams and detaching from the hull.That is one of the reasons exploring Erebus is a priority, but also makes diving in the various decks more risky. Erebus also was the ship upon which Franklin sailed and his cabin could contain a treasure trove of clues, including ship’s logs and captain’s journals. The dive team made it into the cabin of a junior officer on this year’s expedition but didn’t get to Franklin’s.last_img read more

1986Houston Rockets141559164082 1972New York Knicks1214701592123 2003New Jersey Nets141543162481 The Oklahoma City Thunder just keep shocking the basketball world. It wasn’t enough to knock the 67-win San Antonio Spurs out of the playoffs in six games; they’ve also been trouncing the Golden State Warriors like it was nothing special. After crushing the Dubs again Tuesday night, 118-94, OKC is suddenly a win away from eliminating the record-busting defending champions and punching a ticket to the NBA Finals.One way to measure just how impressive this run has been is to look at the Elo ratings, FiveThirtyEight’s favorite way of measuring a team’s strength that takes into account both opponent strength (very strong!) and margin of victory (very high!). Through their first 15 playoff games, only five teams in NBA history increased their Elo rating more than OKC has this postseason. 1995Houston Rockets141531162594 In other words, the Thunder started the playoffs as a very good team. Since then, they’ve become a great one — and, soon, they might have a conference championship to show for it.Check out our latest NBA playoff predictions. With an 85-point increase since the playoffs opened, the Thunder have elevated their Elo to 1767, setting yet another high-water mark for the franchise and — here’s the real shocker — pulling (slightly) ahead of the Warriors as the No. 1-ranked team in the NBA. (Our adjusted CARM-Elo ratings also rank the Thunder first, meaning they would give the Thunder the head-to-head edge over Golden State on a neutral court.)Obviously, Elo ratings aren’t the final word on these two clubs. But in this case, they help underscore just how quickly a team’s level of play can change. A little over a month ago, the 73-win Warriors and 55-win Thunder finished their regular seasons. Now the two squads are basically evenly matched, with a slight edge to the team that won 18 fewer games.And the Thunder’s improvement is in a class of its own, at least in the context of where they started the playoffs. Unlike some squads, such as the 2001 Lakers team that came off of a championship and snoozed through the season before snapping to life in the playoffs, this year’s Thunder squad began the postseason far more highly rated (with an Elo of 1683) than any playoff team that made similarly stark gains. OKC has work to do to catch up with that Lakers squad in overall rating, but the team is already close despite having been blown out a few times in the playoffs. 2010Boston Celtics1415381678140 ELO YEARTEAMGAMES INTO PLAYOFFSSTART OF PLAYOFFSEND OF RUNCHANGE 2013San Antonio Spurs1516011721121 2009Denver Nuggets141607169184 2016Oklahoma City Thunder151683176785 2001Los Angeles Lakers1516471770123 2015Cleveland Cavaliers141631171282 Teams that gained at least 80 Elo points in 15 playoff games or less Source: basketball-reference.com 2001Charlotte Hornets81542162281 read more

The widow of motorsport broadcaster Henry Hope-Frost yesterday said “life can never been the same again” as the driver who killed him in a horror head-on smash was spared jail.The popular presenter, 47, died when Tahir Mehmood’s Toyota Prius – which he bought just the day before – ploughed into Mr Hope-Frost’s Honda motorbike. On Wednesday, Mehmood pleaded guilty to causing the death of the TV star dad-of-three by careless driving.In a heart-breaking victim impact statement tragic Henry’s wife of 13 years Charlotte said: “He was a rare gem of a man for sure.“He was one of the very best dads, always trying to plan work around the school run and bath time.“So he could be with them at the most important parts of the day.“Life can never be the same again.”Describing the impact on their sons Oscar 13, Jasper, six and Felix, three, in the statement read by prosecutor Giles Morrison, she added: “The boys and I miss him.“He was a big, cuddly bear of a man“There was rarely a dull moment when he was around. “When the boys talk about Henry we always try to remember what an amazing man he was.”Religious centre worker Mehmood crossed over onto the opposite side of the A286 in the village of Grayswood, near Haselemere, Surrey on March 8 last year.Mr Hope-Frost was thrown off his bike and 18 metres along the 50mph speed limit road. He was semi-conscious and spoke briefly to a motorist who stopped to help. But he was pronounced dead at the roadside just before 5pm – half an hour after the crash.Mr Morrison told Guildford crown court: “The deceased Mr Hope-Frost was riding his motorbike on the way from having worked at Goodwood.“Travelling in the opposite direction was this defendant driving a Toyota Prius. He had his teenage daughter as a rear passenger. “It seems that Mr Mehmood failed to negotiate a bend, he went straight forward.“The two vehicles collided. The front of the motorcycle collided with the front near side of Mr Mehmood’s Toyota.“As a result Mr Hope-Frost was declared deceased at the scene at 4:57pm. He died before being transferred anywhere.“The driving conditions were quite good, the road was dry, it was not raining. The brightness was good.“The defendant was arrested and gave an explanation that he saw the motorcycle on the bend. “He said he was going 46 or 47mph, under 50mph. He said it came towards him and the motorcycle was coming in the middle part of the road. “In short the defendant denied the offence.”The court heard Mehmood – also 47 and a dad-of-three – had lived in the UK for six years and he came from Pakistan.The judge was shown dashcam footage from a vehicle following Mr Hope-Frost which showed the aftermath of the smash.Charlotte left the public gallery as the clip was played.Alex Stein, defending, said: “Mr Mehmood is a man of good character.“He works at a religious centre.“He purchased the car the day before the accident. Perhaps that may have played a small part in what happened here.“He did not set out that day to cause harm to anyone.”The Prius had previously been used as a taxi and still had taxi stickers on it.Judge Peter Moss ordered Mehmood to carry out a two year community punishment order, 60 days curfew and 200 hours unpaid work.He was also told to pay £670 prosecution costs and an £85 surcharge.Mehmood, of Grayswood, was also banned from driving for 18 months and ordered to do an extended driving course if the wanted to drive again.Mr Moss said: “He (Mr Hope-Frost) has no chance of avoiding you.“Quite why your vehicle crossed that central white line is a mystery.”Motorsport legends paid tribute to Mr Hope-Frost at the time of his death.Among them was former F1 champion Jenson Button who said: “So sad that such a great man lost his life yesterday in a road accident.”Describing his interview style, Button added: “It felt so natural like you were having a good old chinwag with your closest mate.” Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Like any Greek Australian, Thanasi Tiliakos is immensely proud of his heritage; or more accurately, heritages. Young Thanasi is not only of Greek ancestral background, but is also a proud member of the Gurindji tribe – whose country is some 460km southwest of Katherine in the NT. This week, Thanasi’s story – how he attained a scholarship to Sydney’s prestigious Scots College – hit the headlines nationwide with The Australian newspaper celebrating his achievement. Living in Darwin with his grandmother, Thanasi told The Australian that it all began when his aunt Mary Ann approached the Australian Indigenous Education Foundation (AIEF) after he said he wanted more than the NT’s public school system could provide. “I wanted to go to a boarding school because Darwin was getting a bit boring and I wanted to go to a better school with a better education and I asked my nan, ‘How can I get a good school outside of Darwin?’” he said. The AIEF has a policy of looking out for students like Thanasi, who are not necessarily excelling academically, but who show initiative and a yearning for knowledge. After a couple of interviews, he was accepted for a boarding scholarship at The Scots College in Sydney worth $55,000 a year. “It was pretty scary, just coming into this massive school from a small little school and having all these people walking around in suits, when normally the teachers in Darwin wear jeans and a T-shirt – it was pretty scary and pretty funny,” Thanasi said. AIEF chief executive and founder Andrew Penfold says that Thanasi’s experience is one that the foundation wants to replicate. Having already funded the high school and university ambitions of 2000 Indigenous students, having raised $44 million from government grants and the private sector, this week the foundation launched a new phase of their empowering program, backed by national press advertisements. “We’d like to expand that and stretch ourselves from 2,000 to 7,000 students, and in order to do that we need to raise another $100 million,” says Mr Penfold. “Thanasi is a great example of the sorts of kids we are really interested in assisting because of his enthusiasm and natural drive and interest in what’s going on around him – his aspiration for something better, not just for him but for his family and community as well.” Thanasi was 18 months old when his grandmother was given custody of him. His grandfather Athanasis came to Darwin to work in the construction industry from Kalymnos. And it is his grandparental guidance that has helped provide a firm foundation for his start in life. “My mum wasn’t very capable of raising us . . . Nan just didn’t think she could do a very good job,” he said. “I guess she (Nan) did a good job because I am here,” the young Thanasi told The Australian. “This chance means a lot to me. I hope it helps me achieve my goals to become a very successful lawyer and make lots of money so I can help other people. “For some of these (Aboriginal) kids, I think it’s hard to have a goal because they don’t know what they really want. Or maybe they know what they want, but just don’t know how to say what they want and can’t ask for the help.” Thanasi has begun his first term in Year 9 with what is the formative Scots boys’ experience: two full terms of a camp in Kangaroo Valley, two hours southwest of Sydney. Without a phone or internet connection at the remote camp – despite Neos Kosmos’ best efforts – talking directly with Thanasi this week hasn’t been possible, but we did speak with aunt Mary Ann, who described her high-achieving nephew in glowing terms. “He has a wonderful personality. He’s resilient and lives in the present. He’s just a lovely young man,” she said. “Thanasi was christened Greek Orthodox and has spent time in Kalymnos. He’s very proud of his Greek heritage.” While Thanasi Tiliakos may be incommunicado currently, one thing’s for sure; we haven’t heard the last of this rising star.last_img read more

first_img$240,000 has been pledged to the Hellenic Museum by the Victorian Government for the housing of the Benaki Museum collection in Victoria. At an event at the Hellenic Museum last night, to welcome Greece’s Minister for Tourism, Olga Kefalogianni, the Victorian Premier, Denis Napthine made the announcement. In his speech, Mr Napthine said the funds would “assist with the housing of the Benaki collection here at the Hellenic museum, and to assist with the appropriate developments here to appropriately house and display this magnificent priceless unique collection”.“This is something that we see as a government that is so important to recognise the importance of Greek culture and history,” Mr Napthine said.He started his speech by welcoming Ms Kefalogianni home, because “here in Melbourne we are proudly as Geek as Athens or Thessaloniki”“We are the largest and I would say the proudest Greek community outside Greece itself and some would argue that the Greeks here are larger, louder and more proud of their Greek heritage than many Greek citizens themselves.On the night, the Hellenic Museum’s CEO John Tatoulis also announced that the directors of Bardot, Basil Artemides and Carol Skoufis, have come on board as Hellenic Museum benefactors contributing an amount of $50,000“Preparing the Museum for the arrival of the Benaki collection is challenging because we are acutely cognisant of the fact that the Greek Treasures must sit within this living, breathing magnificent Australian treasure that is the former Royal Mint,” Mr Tatoulis said in his speech. “Both cultural treasures must co-exist in a way ensuring they’re sympathetic of, and complimentary to each-other.”The permanent Benaki collection is set to be displayed in the museum mid-year for a ten year duration. The Hellenic Museum is also set to exhibit additional short term, theme specific mini exhibitions. Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

first_imgDe la bière pour prévenir l’ostéoporose chez les femmes ? D’après une récente étude britannique, les femmes pourraient se prémunir contre l’apparition future d’ostéoporose en buvant une pinte de bière par jour. Si la bière est largement reconnue pour ses propriétés diurétiques, c’est un tout autre effet que viennent de dévoiler des chercheurs de l’université de Cambridge aux Etats-Unis. D’après leurs recherches, cette boisson alcoolisée mais très appréciée à travers le monde, aurait un effet positif sur la formation des os. Ainsi, à raison d’une pinte par jour, la bière permettrait aux femmes de se préserver, à partir d’un certain âge, contre l’ostéoporose. Fréquente après la ménopause, cette affection qui se caractérise par une fragilité du squelette se manifeste lorsque la masse osseuse diminue et que la microarchitecture des os s’altère. Or, la bière fabriquée à partir d’eau et de malt est riche en silicone, un composé présent dans certaines plantes et qui s’avère crucial dans la formation des os, continuellement dégradés et reconstitués. Ainsi, des études précédentes ont démontré une corrélation directe entre le taux de silicone fourni par l’alimentation d’une personne et sa densité minérale osseuse. Pour en savoir plus, le professeur Jonathan Powell et ses collègues ont donc voulu voir l’impact de la consommation de bière dans ce processus et ont surveillé les os de femmes buvant plus ou moins de la bière. Une source de choix pour le silicone Au final, ils ont ainsi établi que le silicone n’était pas le seul ingrédient important. L’éthanol contenu dans la bière intervient aussi en diminuant la perte osseuse, tandis que le silicone encourage sa reformation. “Le silicone se combine aux oestrogènes pour produire un effet bénéfique et, alors que les femmes vieillissent, les taux d’hormone chutent. Il est donc important pour les femmes d’avoir de bon apport quotidien en silicone” explique le Professeur Powell cité par le Daily Mail.  À lire aussiOstéoporose : traitement, symptômes, causes, définition, de quoi s’agit-il ?En vérité, plusieurs aliments peuvent fournir ce silicone mais d’après l’étude des chercheurs, la bière serait une source de choix. “Avant, nous avions l’habitude d’obtenir notre silicone de graines ou de céréales, mais aujourd’hui notre nourriture est bien plus traitée, il y en a donc beaucoup moins. L’eau fournit aussi un certain apport, mais le processus de purification a également réduit cela”, précise le chercheur. Il ajoute : “Nos recherches démontrent que le taux d’absorption du silicone à partir de la bière est le plus élevé de celui de tous les aliments”.  Des résultats à considérer avec modération  D’après leurs calculs, une pinte de bière, soit environ un demi litre, contient en fait 8 milligrammes de silicone, qui équivalent à un tiers de l’apport quotidien recommandé. “Les femmes pré-ménopausées tireraient avantage à boire une demie pinte par jour et les femmes post-ménopausées à consommer une pinte de bière par jour”, détaille le Professeur Powell. En revanche, certaines bières sont plus riches en silicone que d’autres, telles que la ale, meilleure source que la lager.  Néanmoins, au vu de telles recherches, les scientifiques ont bien entendu tenu à souligner les pincettes à prendre avec ce genre de résultats. “Des études comme celles-ci sont intéressantes mais elles doivent être prises avec précaution et ne pas être considérées comme une excuse pour augmenter sa consommation d’alcool ou pour boire avec excès certains types d’alcool”, commente le docteur Clare Gerada, de la chaire du Royal College of General Practitioners.  Le 17 octobre 2011 à 16:55 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Vu sa vidéo, il donne en tout cas l’envie d’être essayé !Des membres de l’Université japonaise d’Electro-Communications ont mis au point un nouveau type de jeu hautement technologique et futuriste. Une télécommande tactile permet de manipuler des objets sur un écran. En mode multi-joueurs le jeu se transforme en champ de bataille aux effets visuels et sonores saisissants.Le but semble être de contrôler des toupies aimantées que se déplacent grâce à l’action d’une force magnétique. Il faut ensuite les faire passer dans des endroits précis (lecture des informations par QR Codes) et récupérer des artefacts virtuels disséminés sur la table tactile.

first_imgApple introduced its new subscription gaming service, Apple Arcade, at an event at its headquarters on Monday. Apple Apple is moving deeper into online gaming. The tech giant announced Monday that it’ll offer a gaming subscription service through its App Store called Apple Arcade.”With a single subscription you’ll get access to over 100 new and exclusive games,” Ann Thai, senior product manager for the App Store, said during an event at Apple’s Steve Jobs Theater in Cupertino, California. “You won’t find these games on any other mobile platform or any other subscription service.” CNET may get a commission from retail offers. Apple reveals Apple Arcade, a new subscription gaming… $179 Share your voice Rather than something like what you get from Microsoft, Sony or Google’s new cloud-based game streaming service, Apple will instead include an offering of premium paid games from various developers. These games will be exclusive to Apple and will have a dedicated tab in the App Store. Apple will charge people a monthly fee for the service, but it didn’t say how much yet. Apple Arcade will be available for the iPhone, iPad, Mac and Apple TV this coming fall in more than 150 countries worldwide. With the subscription, Apple said people can play as much as they like without ads or additional purchases. They’ll also be able to play offline. The Arcade service will feature more than 100 new and exclusive games made by well-known studios and developers from around the world, including Annapurna Interactive, Cartoon Network, Konami, Lego, Sega, Hironobu Sakaguchi, Ken Wong and Will Wright. “These developers are some of the greatest storytellers and artists in the world,” Thai said. “They’re creating games that have never been possible before.”Apple has reportedly been developing its game subscription service — sometimes described as a Netflix for games — since last year. But this isn’t the company’s first foray into gaming.

The launch of the iPhone made Apple a vanguard in a new era of mobile and casual gaming. Apple was a key force in widening gaming beyond pricey consoles and high-end PCs, as games became a powerhouse element of the App Store. During the App Store’s biggest sales week ever, when apps pulled in $1.22 billion in the final week of 2018, Apple called out gaming as a main reason why.Thai said Monday that more than 1 billion people have downloaded games from the App Store, which has roughly 300,000 free and paid games. Games is also the most popular category in the App Store, Thai said.Apple has flirted with other realms of gaming before. When the company revamped its Apple TV in 2015 after years of neglect, it opened the door for you to play more games on your TV, a nudge in the direction of a console. The trackpad on Apple TV’s touch remote was the standard controller for all the games available on Apple TV, but Apple TV also added support for legitimate gaming controllers — like Steelseries and Horipad — so Apple TV owners could play arcade- or console-style games more naturally.Now, with its subscription service, Apple will likely be able to draw in even more people. The company said it will continue to add games to the service on a regular basis. The story originally published at 10:43 a.m. PT.  Aug 30 • iPhone 11, 11 Pro, 11R and 11 Max: Price, specs and features we expect on Sept. 10 $179 See It Now playing: Watch this: $169 Aug 29 • New iPhones, Apple Watch and more: Apple’s September event preview Preview • Apple TV 4K: New $179 Apple streamer adds HDR, better gaming Review • Apple TV 4K review: The best TV streamer keeps getting better See It 3 Apple • See It Mentioned Above Apple TV 4K (32GB) See All Mobile Mobile Apps Video Games $179 More from the Apple event Aug 26 • Every Apple TV Plus show announced so far Apple reading • Apple Arcade is a game subscription service for iPhones, Mac and Apple TV Tags Apple Event Apple TV 4K Apple Eventlast_img read more

That’s despite pushback from some gamers, who disagree that harassment and trolling should be moderated or are bad enough to merit tougher enforcement.Last month, Microsoft released Community Standards for Xbox, a set of rules published on its site that it called a “roadmap for contributing to this incredible, globe-spanning community.” One topic addressed is what players can’t say to other players, including racial and homophobic slurs.  Xbox has become the voice of consumers at Microsoft Post a comment Share your voice Microsoft Sony 6:25 0last_img read more

first_imgState-run oil marketing companies (OMCs) such as Indian Oil Corporation (IOC), Bharat Petroleum Corporation Ltd. (BPCL) and Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Ltd. (HPCL) will retain their market share in the fuel retail space in the next two years. Private firms such as Reliance and Essar will continue to remain fringe players, according to a research report.”The advent of competition has done little to spoil OMCs’ fortunes. To illustrate, as per Mar-16 market share data, private players (RIL and Essar) managed to grab only ~4% market share in transportation fuels over FY16,” said financial services firm IDFC Securities in a note.”Our analysis implies that these players can only garner up to 6.5% market share by FY17-18E. This is markedly different from the last iteration in 2003-04, when RIL/Essar grabbed ~15% market share at peak,” the note added.Fuel network at a glanceIndia had 56,190 retail outlets (fuel stations) as on March 31, 2016, according to data published by the Petroleum Planning & Analysis Cell (PPAC) last month. It marked an increase of 2,771, or 5.18 percent, from the beginning of the financial year when there were 53,419 outlets.State-run Indian Oil Corporation (IOC), Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Limited (HPCL) and Bharat Petroleum Corporation Limited (BPCL) together added 2,157 outlets during 2015-16 to take their combined network to 52,604 retail outlets as on March 31, 2016.Essar Oil’s network expanded exponentially from 1,491 outlets as on April 1, 2015, to 2,100 by the end of the year. RIL did not add to its 1,400 outlets during the year.Fuel consumption growth at 8-year highIndia’s fuel consumption growth rate in 2015-16 was 10.9 percent, the highest in the past eight years, according to IDFC Securities. Besides the rising number of vehicles, campaigning for assembly elections during March 2016 also lifted the overall consumption of the two commodities, said PPAC.The IOC stock closed 1.29 percent higher at Rs. 414.80 on the BSE on Thursday. BPCL shares gained 0.57 percent to close at Rs. 925.25 apiece while HPCL edged 0.80 percent lower and ended at Rs. 825.75. Reliance Industries Limited (RIL) shares closed at Rs. 991.05 apiece, up 1.66 percent.last_img read more

first_imgWASHINGTON — Smokey’s Barbershop & Oldies and its owner, Smokey, have been fixtures on H Street for more than 50 years, though business these days, despite the boom for others, is not like it once was.Smokey will be putting down his clippers Saturday.   But don’t shed a tear for him, because he’s actually quitting only temporarily as he joins the biggest block party in Washington, D.C.  – the H Street Festival.Smokey, owner of Smokey’s Barbershop and Oldies, will put down his clippers this weekend and pull out the pit to serve his much-sought-after barbeque. People line up by the dozens for a taste.“Yeah, I’m going to be out there selling barbeque,” he says with a laugh.It’s time for the 11th annual H Street Festival and on Saturday (Sept. 17) restaurants, bars, clothing stores and other vendors will be dishing out food and booze, having eating contests and celebrating District culture.  The festival will take place from noon to 7 p.m. between 4th and 14th streets on H Street.   It is expected to draw 150,000 people.According to festival officials, this year’s event will include over 250 vendors, two beer gardens, a kid’s zone, a chess academy, free professional portraits, a karaoke stage and a PokemonGo Zone. There will even be a couple of eating contests.   Smokey will sell his “original” North Carolina barbeque.Ever since the first H Street Festival, Smokey said he has been outside his shop selling barbeque –straight off the pit.“It’s only ever rained once,” Smokey said.Nat, also a barber in the shop, said, “Folks come from all over. There’s a line half-way down the block for Smokey’s food.”Nat’s advice? Come before noon if you don’t want to wait too long.Smokey, his customers and old and new neighborhood residents said they look forward to the festival because of its positive influence on the neighborhood.“It’s been something to bring together the community, where races and all walks of life are here, present, to enjoy themselves,” said Damoné Henderson, who has been coming to get his hair cut at Smokey’s for 20 years.Joe, a bartender at Po Bo Jim’s, shows off the restaurant’s acclaimed New Orleans-style gumbo.Most restaurants, like Boundary Road and Khan’s Bar & Grill, said to they are preparing for the festival by limiting menu items and doubling staff.Boundary Road’s general manager Mary Kate Wrzensniewski said on the day of the festival, her restaurant won’t offer as many brunch items due to the number of people and the amount of time each dish takes.“Imagine poaching eggs for a restaurant full of people,” Wrzensniewski said. It will also have to keep the kitchen running through its normal daily three-hour break between lunch and dinner, she said. Other eateries will have eating contests.Po Boy Jim’s, a 2-year-old New Orleans-themed restaurant will have their 3rd annual eating contest at 6 p.m. The winner of the contest will receive a trophy and a sandwich named after him or her for a month. Po Boy Jim’s will have outdoor seating, something it does only for the festival.Dangerously Delicious Pies, a national pie chain, will also be having an eating contest.“The pies for the contest are going to be blueberry, so messy and hysterical,” general manager Claire Gladbach said. “No hands.”The restaurant has been on the block for seven years, Gladbach said. According to Gladbach, It has watched the festival grow over time.Alana of Dangerously Delicious Pie shows off one of the pies that people will be devouring during the pie eating contest that the restaurant is sponsoring. “It was really about four or five years ago that it really exploded into the phenomenon that we see it as now,” she said.Gladbach described the preparation as a “pretty beefy process.” The H Street Main street organization schedules meetings between all the business owners and vendors to make sure everyone is updated on new requirements and regulations. “There are a ton of permits that you have to file for,” she said.Despite the meetings and paperwork Gladbach assured she is still looking forward to the festival.“It’s one of those days where you kind of anticipate it,” she said. “Like finals in college, you work your butt off, and you’re exhausted, but at the end of the day you feel like you really did something. It’s like that for the whole neighborhood. It’s pretty much a collective sigh of relief and a simultaneous high five.”Moe Abdi of Eurostyles, a men and women’s clothing store, said he won’t be selling food.   Instead, he will sell H Street Festival shirts on the sidewalk on the sidewalk in front of his store.While most H Street businesses are preparing for a big payday, one store won’t be opening its doors.Cirque Du Rouge, a tattoo shop located right at the start of the festival, will be closed. “It’s a great day, it’s just there’s a lot of drunk people and we don’t want to have to turn people away from the shop,” employee Cynthia Rudzis commented. “Also with traffic and street closures.For more information about the festival, visit the festival’s Facebook page.
