Medina – September 14, 2019 Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho might be the perfect player to play for the Gunners, according to former England international Paul Merson.“It’s a bit sad, especially when you’re seeing Pierre running and he’s so fast that we knew he was going to get there, but I guess it was a smart challenge from Mathieu, but it was unfortunate for us and we were unable to get the goal.”While also talking about Wolves at the weekend and aiming to finish top of the group, Iwobi concluded:“We will go again and start analysing Wolves and that’s not going to be an easy game because they’ve been doing well this season, so onto the next one.”last_img read more

We want guys with good mentality, and that is hard to find.”Asked about goalkeeper Alphonse Areola’s decision to extend his contract with the French champions until 2023, Tuchel praised the France international.Jadon SanchoMerson believes Arsenal should sign Sancho Manuel R.

first_imgAt the time this article was written, ESPN had 3,335,412 followers on Twitter. However, Erin Andrews, one of ESPN’s most popular commentators had 1,200,905 all to herself. By the time you read this, CNN will have more than 3,980,000 followers. But more than 2,304,000 people will be following one of CNN’s biggest brandividuals—Anderson Cooper. Many media executives are naturally driven to perceive this brandividual independence as a threat; not just to their brand, but, as if they’re pimps, to their way of life. However, the risks of resisting or ignoring the realities of this new, brandividual-led world are greater than if you embrace them. First, make sure you have the right brandividuals—journalists or bloggers who are domain experts, whose expertise and reputation engender trust and loyalty, and who understand the importance of immersing themselves into the social networks that matter.Second, don’t be shy about leading your online editorial product with your brandividual(s).Third, in addition to providing the necessary buttons and icons for connecting to your media brand over social networks, be sure to offer all of the available means for your audience members to connect directly with your brandividuals.

But prior to the arrival of social networks, the media brands themselves got to be the sole arbiters of brandividualism. There were no other practical ways to keep in touch with your favorite newscaster, weatherperson or columnist other than to tune into the media brands that employed them. Then along came Twitter and Facebook—two services that have not only up-ended the media industry in well-chronicled ways, but ones that have also reinforced the principles of brandividualism.In a double-whammy, not only are Twitter and Facebook disintermediating media brands as the sole channelers of the trust relationship between audience and brandividuals, they’ve become the platforms upon which new independent, but highly trusted brandividuals have risen. The latter phenomenon and its potential to dilute audience is the more oft-discussed challenge to modern day media. But the former should be just as interesting to us students of media.last_img read more

The State Delegation from Woburn and Wilmington sent a joint letter to the Mass Department of Environmental Protection outlining their objections to the project and asking them to take immediate action. The text of the letter is below.Sincerely,Michael L Raymond, ChairmanWoburn Neighborhood Association++++++++++++++++++++++Office of Heidi ZischGeneral CounselMass DEP 205B Lowell StWilmington, MA 01887Attorney Zisch,We write to you with great concern about the environmental impact regarding the “Ledges” project located at 1042 Main Street in Woburn, MA, and the widespread effects it will have on both the local and regional human and animal populations, forest ecosystem, and groundwater runoff. While we support accessible and affordable housing opportunities in the greater Boston area, the impact the proposed project has on the surrounding neighborhoods in terms of dust, noise, and construction on an environmentally damaged plot leads us to believe that such a project’s negatives far outweigh any perceived benefits. We believe that MassDEP would likely share in our and our constituents justified concerns,Firstly, with 420,000 cubic yards of soil set to be removed, the project not only radically alters the community but also exposes all residents to dust and debris as a result of the extensive blasting. Of particular concern to us is the great amount of Silica dust that will be created. As we are sure you know, silica contributes to increased risks of a myriad of cancers, a heightened risk of OCPD, and is the direct cause of silicosis. These risks are especially concerning due to the presence of young children and the elderly nearby, living in homes not typically insulated against such fine particle matter. Even if such particles do not enter the homes and business of residents, fine particles that land on cars, playsets, and pathways will be directly stirred up and breathed by thousands of people. The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health recommends that workers who deal with silica change their clothes and park their vehicle in sheltered areas at the worksite, noting that fallen particles on clothes and cars still raise the level for illness. The residents of Woburn and Wilmington do not have this luxury, and instead are forced to be exposed to contaminates without any choice but to abandon their homes. This is egregious.Secondly, we wish MassDEP to address the radical changes such a development will have on the water percolation and runoff, especially with respect to the change in how the plume of the Olin Chemical site has continuously spread. As we are sure you are aware the chemicals leaked from the Olin Chemical property have created a larger plume than previously expected, With the removal of vegetation, top soil, and the creation of thousands of square feet of non-permeable surface we are concerned with the exacerbation that concentrated percolation and drainage will have in extending the plume. By creating non-permeable surfaces and removing topsoil storm-water run off potentially increase in concentration, pushing chemicals spreading through the bedroom even further rather than being held and released more slowly as the current topography of the site allows. As you are also aware, the Wilmington area cancer study is still an ongoing matter, and evidence suggests a correlation between the appearance of rare cancers and the chemicals present in the Woburn/Wilmington watershed.Thirdly, our delegation is concerned about the noise and light pollution on nearby residents. While the area is developed, the lowering of the elevation of the hill and the removal of the trees changes the dynamic of the light and noise pollution tremendously. It is no secret that studies show that exposure to light and sound during evening hours leads to higher rates of stress, depression, anxiety, and more in children. The size and scope of a project that radically alters the landscape will decrease the health of the population, decrease the values of existing property, and compound an already tenuous public health picture.As the project is moving forward, urgent action is greatly needed. We ask that you, within your powers, take into account our objections with the project so that the good people of Woburn and Wilmington do not lose their health, homes, or happiness. As always, if you have any questions on the above points, the project in general, or our other numerous concerns please do not hesitate to reach out to our respective offices.Sincerely,Representative David RobertsonRepresentative Richard HaggertyRepresentative Kenneth GordonSenator Bruce TarrSenator Cindy FriedmanLike Wilmington Apple on Facebook.

first_imgSamsung Galaxy Home Juan Garzon/CNET When Samsung first started talking about making a Bixby-powered smart speaker last year, it said it would arrive in the second half of 2018. Samsung officially announced the Galaxy Home at its Galaxy Note 9 event in August 2018 and promised to share more details at the company’s developer conference in November. It showed off the speaker again then, but didn’t give specifics on its launch date.Then at the Galaxy S10 Unpacked event in February 2019, Samsung co-CEO DJ Koh told CNET that it would launch the speaker by April. (Samsung’s US PR department, though, would only say it would launch in the first half of 2019.)Now it’s mid-May and, and the world remains without a Bixby-powered cauldron. What gives? Share your voice Amazon Google Samsung Samsung’s first Bixby speaker, the Galaxy Home, revealed 0 2:23 Galaxy Home: Samsung’s answer to the HomePod News • Samsung Galaxy Home reportedly delayed to later this year Now playing: Watch this:center_img Samsung Galaxy Home In a statement provided to CNET on Friday, a Samsung spokesperson said it’s “planning to launch Galaxy Home in the first half of 2019,” making it clear that Samsung still intends to release the device. But the company didn’t share any specifics, and it hasn’t yet detailed the Galaxy Home’s pricing.  Bixby is Samsung’s homegrown digital voice assistant that launched with the Galaxy S8 about three years ago. It initially was geared as an interface to control the phone, but Samsung since then expanded the technology into its various appliances and televisions. A smart speaker is aimed to be the latest home for Bixby, taking advantage of the expertise of Samsung’s Harman audio expertise. For Samsung and numerous others, artificial intelligence is the next big wave of computing. Every tech heavyweight is investing in these assistants because they’re heralded as the future of how we’ll interact with our gadgets. But it’s already a crowded arena, with Google and Amazon largely dominating the smart speaker market. The Galaxy Home’s lateness could make it even tougher to compete. The delay of the Home comes as Samsung struggles to get its flashy Galaxy Fold out the door. A number of devices tested by journalists ahead of the $1,980 foldable phone’s release suffered from broken or damaged tablet displays, leading Samsung to postpone its planned April 26 launch. More smart speakers: Sonos readying Google Assistant update for next weekThis week the company emailed those who preordered the device saying that it would cancel their orders if the phone doesn’t ship by May 31 unless customers tell the company that they want to keep them. With a little over a month to go until the first half of the year ends, time is certainly ticking to see if Samsung hits this latest target. CNET’s Shara Tibken contributed to this report.

first_img Share In July 1979, Tropical Storm Claudette caused significant flooding in southeast Texas. In Friendswood, Mike Babin’s house received 18 inches of water, forcing Babin to make serious renovations. During the process, he scrawled a note on some exposed sheetrock, wishing the future residents well in case the same misfortune fell upon them. He covered the note with a 1 x 6-inch piece of white pine, and forgot about it, until Jennifer Hunt (the current owner) found it while volunteers were mucking and gutting the house after it received 38 inches of water due to Harvey. Hunt and Babin met for the first time and shared stories.Full text of the note: “Mike Babin and his wife Donna and dog Munchkin were wiped out by Hurricane Claudette in July 1979, suffering 18 inches of water. They worked hard and long to restore this house. In the long future ahead, whoever may find this little note, best of wishes on the long hours you may find yourself trying to restore it. If you are anything like they are, you will find yourself goofing off and getting frustrated the rest of the time. To the best of interest, happy remodeling.”last_img read more

first_imgAlmost half of all devices that receive TV services from the largest global pay TV service providers by 2015 will be PCs, smartphones, tablets and other multiscreen devices, according to the latest report from IHS Screen Digest.IHS predicts that the top 43 global pay TV operators will supply TV services to 310 million active multiscreen devices by 2015, compared with 322 million set-top boxes. Set-tops will account for 51% of receiving devices, down from 82% today, according to the report.The global set-top box base from multiscreen operators is expected to grow by 17% between 2011 and 2015, compared with 400% growth for multiscreen devices receiving pay TV services. However, multiscreen operators will account for only about a third of all set-tops installed globally by 2015, compared with about half of all set-tops today, meaning that globally, set-tops will still account for the majority of pay TV screens.last_img read more
