It might already be.But to keep the slimmest of hopes alive for a monumental turnaround under Jon Gruden, the Raiders (1-4) need to put on a show for the Wembley Stadium fans when the NFL takes center stage in London at 6 p.m. local time (10 a.m. PST) on Sunday.Here are three big things to watch for in the game.last_img

first_imgWorries about the crater count dating method, widely relied upon to infer ages of planetary surfaces, began emerging in 2005.  Those worries have not subsided; they have only grown worse.  Crater numbers may have nothing to do with age.We’ve kept track of the crater count crisis since 2005, when the problem of secondary craters was brought to light (10/20/2005, 6/08/2006, 9/25/2007, 3/25/2008, 7/25/2010).  Secondary craters are formed by fallback debris from large impacts (primary craters).  A single large impact can produce a million secondary craters, blurring relationships between crater counts and the age of a surface.Astronomers had hoped that secondaries could be identified, thereby alleviating the confusion.  Not so; a new paper in Icarus by Xiao and Strom1 indicates that many secondaries are very difficult to distinguish from primaries, because debris lofted up may go into orbit for years, falling down far away from the initial impact (distant secondaries).The authors tested dating by counting small craters in a variety of presumed “old” and “young” regions of the moon, and got widely divergent results despite using standard methods and software.  They urged a high degree of caution, therefore, when trying to infer the age of a planetary surface.  The abstract states:The small crater populations (diameter smaller than 1 km) are widely used to date planetary surfaces. The reliability of small crater counts is tested by counting small craters at several young and old lunar surfaces, including Mare Nubium and craters Alphonsus, Tycho and Giordano Bruno. Based on high-resolution images from both the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera and Kaguya Terrain Camera, small craters in two different diameter ranges are counted for each counting area. Large discrepancies exist in both the cumulative (absolute model ages) and relative plots for the two different size ranges of the same counting areas. The results indicate that dating planetary surfaces using small crater populations is highly unreliable because the contamination of secondaries may invalidate the results of small crater counts. A comparison of the size-frequency distributions of the small crater populations and impact ejected boulders around fresh lunar craters shows the same upturn as typical Martian secondaries, which supports the argument that secondaries dominate the small crater populations on the Moon and Mars. Also, the size-frequency distributions of small rayed lunar and Martian craters of probable primary origin are similar to that of the Population 2 craters on the inner solar system bodies post-dating Late Heavy Bombardment. Dating planetary surfaces using the small crater populations requires the separation of primaries from secondaries which is extremely difficult. The results also show that other factors, such as different target properties and the subjective identification of impact craters by different crater counters, may also affect crater counting results. We suggest that dating planetary surfaces using small crater populations should be with highly cautious.Some of those “other factors” include not knowing the incoming rate (impact flux), saturation criteria, differences in target properties, erosion rates, or what complicated resurfacing histories have occurred.  In addition, human judgment can bias the counts based on what individuals consider significant: “this problem is severe in small crater counts,” the authors noted, although it might be alleviated with automated counting methods in the future.  Even so, someone would have to tell the computer the difference between the small potatoes and the large potatoes.  Non-impact structures (like volcanic vents) can sometimes look like craters.Crater count dating would be straightforward if impactors of predictable size came in at a predictable rate within predictable rates of speed, were made of predictable materials and impacted a uniform surface material and left marks distinct from those of any other source.  Even correcting for known complicating factors, astronomers thought they could calibrate the “old” and “young” craters with radiometric measurements from Apollo samples.  Unfortunately, complications quickly arise in all those assumptions.  Absolute dating was not a help:We counted the small crater populations on both young and old lunar surfaces to determine the problems of using small crater counts for age dating. Our counting areas are not smaller than those used in other publications, and the absolute model ages were determined from the widely employed production and chronology functions. Great discrepancies are observed in the small crater counts.The authors were so pessimistic, they could not even recommend crater counting to assess relative ages.  “Small crater counts are highly unreliable for either relative or absolute age dating on both old and young surfaces,” they said.  In addition, the uncertainties they learned from testing the method on the moon and Mars extends to the whole solar system: “All crater counting ages on other celestial bodies,” they warned, “are based on certain assumptions about the origin and impact rate of the impactors.”  The take-home message from the paper was bleak:In general, statistics of small craters are affected by numerous factors, e.g., contamination of secondaries and different target properties. Crater counting is a subjective process which causes more uncertainties to the results. Simplistic attempts to date planetary surfaces from small crater counts may be invalidate if they do not take these factors into account.Update 5/24/2012: Mike Wall, seni0r editor for Space.com, unwittingly illustrated the arbitrariness of crater count dating in an article on Live Science: “One of the Red Planet’s most mysterious landforms is probably 2 billion years older than has been thought,” he began, “suggesting it may have had a volcanic origin, a new crater count finds.”    While not questioning the validity of the method, Wall wrote that different astronomers, all using crater counts, arrived at ages for the Medusae Fossae area on Mars of a few hundred million years (“very young”), then 1.6 billion years, and now, up to 3.8 billion years.  This not only shows that the same method produced results differing by over 250%, but also raises doubts whether the newly-published date is any more reliable.1. Xiao and Strom, “Problems determining relative and absolute ages using the small crater population,” Icarus, accepted manuscript May 17, 2012.Some relative dating can be preserved.  If a crater sits inside or on top of another crater, all that can be said is that the inside or top crater happened after the other one.  But without knowing when they formed or how much time had passed between them, how useful is that?  It’s a subjective process with too many uncertainties.So, toss another dating method into the dustbin, along with all its secondary impacts – the Late Heavy Bombardment, the age of the solar system (A.S.S.), relative events between solar system bodies and all the other mythoids* the moyboys** use to pretend they have gnosis about an unobserved history and can tell us all about it.*Mythoid: An easily understood, workable falsehood that can be stated succinctly to sound like a fact.  Not to be confused with factoid.** Moyboy: someone who assumes “millions of years, billions of years” will solve any problem.

first_imgTaking an initiative to promote digital enterprise management, the Indian Institute of Management, Udaipur, has launched the first-ever master’s programme in the field to equip professionals with working knowledge of emerging technologies and acclaimed practices. Advisory boardThe institute has also set up an Academic Advisory Board for developing the new course.The curriculum for the 12-month residential course has been prepared in consultation with industry experts. IIM-Udaipur director Janat Shah told The Hindu on Sunday that the curriculum would enable professionals to work efficiently in the emerging digital business enterprises where conventional management concepts and leadership styles were no longer relevant.The IIM-Udaipur has signed memorandums of understanding with some leading companies for collaboration in educating its students in digital knowledge. Prof. Shah said this approach would help bridge the gap between academia and industry and give an opportunity to the students to get a jump-start and enter the workforce with the relevant experience.“Since the industries are ahead of us, an association with them will train our students — who will be professionals with three years’ experience — in the organisational behaviour and strategies across disciplines as well in the analytics-related subjects and new technologies related to digital transformation,” Prof. Shah said.More MoUs are in the pipeline for collaborations focused on strategic and practical challenges of managing digital enterprises. “For instance, IBM will give students relevant exposure to leading-edge technologies, including artificial intelligence and advanced analytics, and provide a platform for short-term projects in the digital space,” said the IIM-Udaipur director.The IIM-Udaipur, established in 2011, is currently ranked fifth in India for research in the field of management, according to the methodology used by the University of Texas at Dallas. The institute has established a Centre for Digital Enterprise to create an environment for thought leadership in digital transformation and expand research opportunities in the field.Begins in April, 2020Prof. Shah said the IIM-Udaipur’s Board of Governors had formally approved setting up of the Academic Advisory Board at its meeting held over the weekend. The new master’s programme, for which admissions have started based on GMAT/GRE score, will begin in April 2020.last_img read more

first_imgShaun Marsh hit a quick-fire 71 and Paul Valthaty smashed 46 runs as Kings XI Punjab spanked Rajasthan Royals by 48 runs to score their third consecutive win in the Indian Premier League in Mohali on Thursday. Score | PhotosPunjab top-order yet again put up a dominating show and helped the side post an imposing 195 for seven, highest total so far in the fourth edition, after being invited to bat.Apart from Marsh and Valthaty, skipper Adam Gilchrist (28) and Dinesh Karthik (21) did well for the Punjab on the batting-friendly PCA track.The hosts then restricted Rajasthan to 147 for seven and jumped to third place in the points table with six points from three wins in four matches.Punjab had beaten defending champions Chennai Super Kings and 2009 champions Deccan Chargers in their early outings.Rajasthan, the 2008 champions, suffered third consecutive defeat and slipped to fifth spot with five points.The visitors had done well by conceding just 26 runs in the last five overs of the Punjab innings but the total still proved way out of their reach as their batsmen let them down yet again.A good start was imperative to stand any chance in the contest but the Rajasthan openers — Rahul Dravid (8) and Swapnil Asnodkar (9) — failed to do the job.Big guns such as Shane Watson (24) and Ross Taylor (0) also failed to fire and credit goes to some very disciplined bowling by Punjab bowlers.Paceman Praveen Kumar (2/22) was very impressive in his opening spell as he bowled Asnodkar early in the innings and saw the back of the dangerous Watson in his last over.advertisementSpinner Piyush Chawla trapped big hitter Taylor for a duck and by the eighth over Rajasthan were out of the contest.Stuart Binny (30) and Ashok Menaria (34) later hit some lusty shots but their knocks only reduced the defeat margin.Earlier, Marsh anchored the Punjab innings after the openers — Gilchrist (28 off 16) and Valthaty (46 off 31) — provided a flying start by plundering 67 runs in 4.2 overs.Marsh was supported well by Karthik as the two raised 70 runs for the third wicket but the Australian left-hander could not provide the finishing touches as the hosts fell short of the 200-run mark.Marsh’s 42-ball innings was adorned with six fours and three sixes — all coming in a single over off Shane Warne.The hosts were cruising towards a 200-plus score at one stage as they were 169 for two in 15 overs but Rajasthan bowlers made a good comeback in the last five overs as they gave away just 26 runs and took five wickets.Australian pace duo of Shuan Tait (3/23) and Shane Watson (2/24) shared five wickets between them and bowled four of the last five overs.At the start, both Gilchrst and Valthaty were out off no balls in the first and second over respectively and Rajasthan paid a very heavy price for the two mistakes as the hosts went on to rattle up the fastest team-fifty and team-hundred.In three overs, Punjab had 52 runs on the board with Gilchrist and Valtahty hammering Siddharth Trivedi and Tait all around the park.Punjab skipper was the first to get reprieve as he was bowled off a no ball in the first over off Trivedi, who over-stepped. Then in the second over Tait had Valthaty caught at third slip but on a back foot no-ball.That proved very costly as Valthaty smashed Trivedi for three fours and two sixes in the next over.A bamboozled Shane Warne introduced himself in the attack but Gilchrist hardly gave any respect to his former Australian teammate as he smashed the leg-spinner for a six over mid-wicket and scored a four in the next ball.Shane Watson finally provided the visitors a breakthrough by dismissing Gilchrist but Marsh and Valthaty continued to punish the rival bowlers as Punjab raised the fastest team-hundred — in just 9.2 overs.The hundred came with Valthaty lofting Warne for a huge six on a short ball but the leg-spinner retaliated by having the danger-man caught at long-off on a miscued shot.Marsh too was in awesome touch and hit some classy boundaries and one such shot was a cover-drive off spinner Abhishek Raut. Marsh then hit Warne for three sixes in the 14th over and raised his fifty in the process.Karthik added salt to the woes of Rajasthan by hitting three consecutive boundaries off Trivedi in the next over.However, three quick wickets stopped the rot as Shaun Tait dismissed Karthik, Abhishek Nayar (1) was run out and Marsh got out while attempting another big shot.advertisement- With PTI inputslast_img read more

The athlete, who is in his seventh season with the Panthers, said he thinks the mogul’s plans are “cool.”“It was amusing,” Newton, who said he doesn’t want Panthers owner Jerry Richardson to sell, tells reporters Wednesday, Dec. 20. “He’s a person that has a lot of influence in the culture so, he’s cool. I don’t know what to expect. I still don’t even know what to expect … I don’t even know how you even sell something of this magnitude. So I’m just gonna stay in my lane, worry about throwing touchdowns on Sunday and let the rest handle stuff.”In a Monday, Dec. 18 video announcement, Diddy said he plans to pit free agent QB Colin Kaepernick against Newton in order to determine who would be the starter. This came after Richardson announced he would sell the team in 2018.“That’s cool. I’m cool with it,” Newton says of the showdown. “Whatever happens, happens. They say two things either happen in competition: either you’re better or you’re worse so I’m all for whatever. But as far as a person [Diddy] that I’ve always looked up to … for that to even be a mention, that’s cool in itself.”Diddy and the PanthersSteph Curry Steps In to Help Diddy Buy Carolina PanthersAnchors Apologize After One Claimed Diddy ‘Smoked a Blunt and Drank a 40’Diddy Is Unbothered By Apologetic Anchors Who Clowned Him, Says He’s Unafraid to DreamShould Diddy, who Forbes reports is worth $820 million, be able to buy the $2.3 billion team, he’d make history as the sole Black NFL team owner. But it seems at least two athletes want to help him make the purchase — including the one he wants to become a Panther.Golden State Warriors guard Steph Curry tweeted he wanted “in” on ownership and Kaepernick posted, “let’s make it happen!”Diddy quickly co-signed Curry’s response but has been quieter about his plans with Kaepernick.A source close to the former San Francisco 49er told Yahoo! Kaep has started discussing the launch of an ownership group by contacting venture capitalists, business heads and sports legends. The insider said Kaepernick has a “shared vision” with Diddy to create an ownership group that reflects the 70 percent Black player make up of the NFL.“The interest is real and it’s moving forward,” the source said of the Combs-Kaepernick partnership. “They want to make this a reality. It’s serious.”Still, many are fixated on Diddy’s QB competition between Newton and Kaepernick.How can you not laugh at the suggestion that Kap could compete with Cam?— MyPanthersNewsFeed (@CPanthers1995) December 20, 2017 Cam Newton was asked today about Diddy’s proclamation that if he bought the Panthers he’d let Colin Kaepernick compete for the starting QB job:“It’s cool.” pic.twitter.com/KcIVrcMENC— Coley Harvey (@ColeyHarvey) December 20, 2017 Kaep couldn’t beat Blake Bortles in a QB competition.

We want a right partner and a right model,” Trent Managing Director Philip Auld told PTI when asked about West Asia and Africa ventures.Staying cautious on foreign foray, he said the company preferred joint venture as it “shares the risk.” Auld said that initially the Middle East was the first destination and dialogue was under progress for a right partner and things might get crystallised in a year’s time. Also Read – Heavy rain hits traffic, flightsIn 2015, Trent Chairman Noel Tata at the AGM had first spelt out the wish to take its retail format to Africa and West Asia but competition, transaction costs, taxes and exchange rates were subjects of consideration for the company before deciding to venture out.Though Auld did not spell out which of the retail format might be taken overseas but Westside was the preferred choice for the company.”In Westside 98 per cent of the merchandise are in-house (except cosmetics) which offers us full control in operation. Some 6-7 years ago external brands share in Westside was 20-22 per cent,” he said.

We’ll open 30 Westside stores this year of which 10 will be in the east.Last year, the number was 18. In the next 3-5 years, we’ll open at least 30 stores a year,” Auld said.last_img read more

first_imgThe French data regulator, National Data Protection Commission (CNIL) has imposed a financial penalty on Google for 50M euros for failing to comply with GDPR. After a thorough analysis, CNIL observed that information provided by Google is not easily accessible for users, neither is it always clear or comprehensive. CNIL started this investigation after receiving complaints from None Of Your Business and La Quadrature du Net. They complained about Google “not having a valid legal basis to process the personal data of the users of its services, particularly for ads personalization purposes.” Following its own investigation, after the complaints, CNIL also found Google guilty of not validly obtaining proper user consent for ad personalization purposes. Per the committee, Google makes it hard for people to understand how their data is being used by using broad and obscure wordings. For example, CNIL says, “in the section “Ads Personalization”, it is not possible to be aware of the plurality of services, websites and applications involved in these processing operations (Google search, Youtube, Google home, Google maps, Play store, Google pictures…) and therefore of the amount of data processed and combined.” Google is also violating GDPR rules when new Android users set up a new phone and follow Android’s onboarding process. The committee found that when an account is created, the user can modify some options associated with the account by clicking on the ‘More options’. However, the display of the ads personalization is pre-ticked. This violates GDPR’s rule of ‘consent being ambiguous’. Furthermore, GDPR states that the consent is “specific” only if it is given distinctly for each purpose. However Google violates it as before creating an account, the user is asked to tick the boxes « I agree to Google’s Terms of Service» and « I agree to the processing of my information as described above and further explained in the Privacy Policy» in order to create the account. Therefore, the user gives his or her consent in full, for all the processing operations purposes carried out by Google. Netizens feel that 50M euros are far too little to pay as a fine for a massive organization like Google. However, a hacker news user counter argued the statement saying that “Google or any other company does not get to just continue their practices, as usual, the fine is pure “punishment” for the bad behavior in the past. Google would gladly pay them if it meant they could continue their anti-competitive practices, it would just be a cost of doing business. But that’s not the point of them. The real teeth are in the changes they will be forced to make.” Twitteratis were also in support of CNIL. A Google spokesperson spoke to Techcrunch with the following statement, “People expect high standards of transparency and control from us. We’re deeply committed to meeting those expectations and the consent requirements of the GDPR. We’re studying the decision to determine our next steps.” Read Next Googlers launch industry-wide awareness campaign to fight against forced arbitration EU slaps Google with $5 billion fine for the Android antitrust case Google+ affected by another bug, 52M users compromised, shut down within 90 dayslast_img read more
