first_imgBurnley manager Sean Dyche said his team fully deserved their point at Chelsea and feels it will give them belief for a tough run of fixtures ahead.The Clarets’ next six Premier League games are against teams from the top half of the table, including Liverpool, Manchester City and Arsenal.“I felt we deserved at least a point today. We are very pleased with our performance,” Dyche said.“It helps to build mentality and belief, particularly the will to affect a game.”The draw against ten-man Chelsea at Stamford Bridge was not enough to lift Burnley out of the drop zone, but Dyche insists that his team’s efforts bode well for their battle against relegation.He added: “The players are up for the challenge. We will be playing on the front foot and taking teams on.”Dyche said he had not yet studied the four incidents that so irked Blues boss Jose Mourinho.“I will look back at it at some point, but there’s more to the game than that,” Dyche said.“Every week across this division you see simulation, you see all sorts of things going on. I think it’s getting tougher and tougher for referees.”Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Dan Armitage, host of Buckeye Sportsman, Ohio’s longest running outdoor radio showThe news just keep getting better regarding the future of fishing in Ohio waters of Lake Erie. Preliminary results from surveys in the western basin of the lake indicate that for the second straight year, data points to an exceptional walleye hatch, the second-highest in the history of the survey, and the yellow perch hatch was also strong, well above its long-term average.Each year in August, wildlife agencies from Ohio, Ontario, and Michigan sample the western basin of Lake Erie in search of young-of-the-year walleye and yellow perch. Biologists from the Ohio Division of Wildlife (ODOW) survey nearly 40 locations between Toledo and Huron. The data is compared with the results from previous years to gauge the success of the walleye and yellow perch hatches.The Division of Wildlife’s 2019 August walleye hatch index was 143. This is the second-highest value on record for Ohio’s waters of the western basin and far above the 20-year index average of 27. This year’s outstanding hatch combined with the excellent 2015 and 2018 year-classes will ensure an abundance of young walleye to complement the older and larger fish that make up the current Lake Erie walleye population.The August survey found the 2019 yellow perch hatch index to be very good at 467. This is above Ohio’s western basin 20-year index average of 317 and is the fifth year in the past seven that falls above the average. This above-average yellow perch hatch will help bolster the population following a strong 2018 hatch in the western basin. Additionally, catches of yearling yellow perch were nearly double the 20-year average and confirm the strength of last year’s class.During the upcoming months, Ohio survey results will be combined with Ontario data to characterize the basin-wide catches of young-of-year walleye and yellow perch. This data allows biologists to calculate an initial projection of how many young fish will enter the fishable population two years later, which will be used in the process to determine jurisdictional quotas for the 2021 fishing season.Information on the Division of Wildlife’s Lake Erie research and management programs, fisheries resources, fishing reports, maps, and links to other Lake Erie web resources are available at wildohio.gov. Meanwhile, get ready to enjoy what are sure to be known in the future as those “good old days” of fishing in Ohio’s Great Lake during the seasons to come.last_img read more

first_imgA Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… A little over six weeks out and already everybody’s talking about what company will break out at this year’s SXSW Interactive. There’s been a lot of talk about apps like GroupMe, Beluga and Fast Society, which all make group communication quick and easy, but what about talking to people who you don’t already know? Enter Yobongo, the iPhone app that “makes it super fun and easy to chat with people nearby.” Today, the company is launching into private beta and ReadWriteWeb readers will get priority access after the jump.Yobongo was started by Caleb Elston, former VP of product at Justin.tv, and David Kasper, a software engineer at Justin.tv. Both left the company last October, with Elston writing at the time that they wanted Yobongo to be what other apps hadn’t yet realized.It is clear to us that there will emerge new ways to communicate as a result of the proliferation of always connected location aware mobile devices. We have not seen anything truly new created yet, imagined from the ground up, that takes advantage of the unique characteristics of these new mobile devices. We believe Yobongo will be a new way to communicate and share with people nearby from your mobile device.According to the current landing page, using the app is as simple as opening it up. “There aren’t rooms to select, friends to find, or people to follow. We magically connect you to the conversation that’s happening around you.”Elston explained that they’ve taken a different approach than other location apps with Yobongo and that it isn’t just about where you are.Our algorithm takes into account all of the users who are in the app and where they are in relation to each other. When a new user opens the app, we determine which people to put them with based on various heuristics.  Unlike many location services, we think the organizing principle should be around people, not GPS coordinates. The room algorithm is dynamic, so less dense areas will still have a positive experience. Therefore we target a manageable number of people per conversation.In order to avoid abuse by users hiding behind Internet anonymity, Yobongo will allow users to sign in using Facebook Connect or to create a Yobongo account. Elston explains that they will check all accounts for legitimate names and photos, similar to how Facebook does, saying that they believe that “real identity is critical to fostering real communication.”Serendipitous ConnectionsThis certainly isn’t the first attempt we’ve seen at solving the puzzle of serendipitous meetings. Last year, we wrote about a service called Meet Gatsby that approached a similar problem. The idea behind it was simple – you listed your interests and, whenever you checked in using Foursquare, if someone else had recently checked in nearby and had similar interests, it would text you. In theory, it sounded great, but in practice I (for one) found at that a whole lot of people like bikes, beer and the Internet. Now, listing these general interests may have been my fault, but it’s also not necessarily the case that with every Foursquare check-in you’re looking to make a new friend. With Yobongo, you only open the app with the express intent of chatting and potentially meeting with complete strangers in relative proximity.So, where do we actually see Yobongo getting used? At something like SXSW, there are a thousand crowded rooms full of people who may or may not actually have something to say to each other. At times, it can feel like you’re a ball in a pinball machine, as you bounce from one person to another. Perhaps Yobongo could help act as that initial filter. Rather than talking to whoever catches your eye or happens to be standing in the same line, Yobongo could help connect you with someone who shares similar interests or intentions.Outside of techie events like SXSWi, Yobongo could be useful in a variety of situations. The group dynamic could make it easier to make initial contact with strangers and find out if there’s any reason to go beyond chatting in an iPhone app. With something like Foursquare, your only real choice is a face-to-face interaction. Unfortunately, we haven’t gotten to play with it yet, so it’s all speculation, but we’re looking forward to seeing how it works. Elston has offered priority access to ReadWriteWeb readers and the first invites should be sent out today.

first_imgNEW YORK — Cam Talbot was ready for this start for quite a while, well before a text message alerted him to be on call.Now that he has another win under his belt, he could soon be in line for more action.Talbot made 18 saves in place of the injured Henrik Lundqvist, Rick Nash had a goal and an assist, and Derek Stepan snapped a second-period tie to lift the New York Rangers to their third straight win, 3-2 over the Boston Bruins on Feb. 4.Talbot, whose previous start was a 3-0 loss at Boston on Jan. 15, got the nod after Lundqvist was forced out by a neck injury caused when he was struck in the throat by a shot against Carolina on Jan. 31.“I got a text last night saying maybe be ready, and then this morning when I got to the rink they gave me the go,” said Talbot (5-4-1). “I really didn’t have to do a whole lot. The guys did a great job in front of me.“I was kind of hoping for a start at some point, not under these circumstances obviously, but I was ready for a start whenever it came.”Rangers coach Alain Vigneault reiterated that Lundqvist is day to day, but if he isn’t able to play at Nashville on Feb. 7, Vigneault will turn back to Talbot.“I have a lot of confidence in Cam. His teammates have a lot of confidence in him, so if he needs to go he will be ready,” Vigneault said.Nash scored his NHL-leading 32nd goal in the first period, and Derick Brassard and Stepan scored in the second.Milan Lucic and Patrice Bergeron had goals in the first for Boston, which was 8-1-1 in its previous 10. Tuukka Rask stopped 22 shots.“We weren’t committed enough to get us the win. Our commitment and discipline has to be better,” Lucic said. “For some reason we wanted an easy game. They come at you hard with a lot of speed. It’s 50 games in, you know how the other team will play.”The Rangers regained the lead in the second.With his back to the net, Chris Kreider sent the puck into the slot to Brassard for a shot past Rask at 6:41. It was Brassard’s 13th goal and second in seven games. New York made it 3-2 when Nash moved the puck to Stepan, who scored his ninth goal with 3:04 left.Talbot had a much better second period, stopping all seven shots.“We knew this was a big two points for us,” Talbot said of the Rangers, who won three of four on their homestand and moved within two points of first-place Pittsburgh in the Metropolitan Division. “This team has been really resilient.”Things had started well for Talbot and the Rangers, who took a 1-0 lead before the Bruins recorded a shot.“That is always nice. Unfortunately I gave the lead right back to them,” Talbot said. “Our guys did a great job of battling back and getting the lead back for me. I was able to stop the rest from there.”Nash scored in the first period for the third straight game when he raced down left wing, cut in front of Rask, shifted the puck from forehand to backhand, and put it in at 5:50.Talbot made his first save with 12:15 remaining when he stopped defenseman Adam McQuaid, drawing a big cheer from the crowd, and then made another solid stop just over 2 minutes later against Loui Eriksson.But despite notching only five shots in the first period, the Bruins took a 2-1 lead into the intermission.Lucic got it started just hours after he arrived in New York by scoring his 11th goal. The puck popped free from a scrum in the lower right corner of the Rangers end and came to Lucic in the slot for a hard drive that nestled into the top left corner at 13:37.It was the second goal in three games for Lucic, who missed practice Feb. 3 because of the flu.The Bruins needed only 1:52 more to grab a 2-1 edge on Bergeron’s 13th of the season.“We weren’t executing well enough to deny their speed,” Bergeron said. “We didn’t get the start we wanted. We were expecting a tough game from a good team. That’s what we got, and we paid for it.”(IRA PODELL, AP Hockey Writer)TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

first_imgBy Saumojyoti S Choudhury(Eds: Adding FIH’s comments on hearing and changing intro) Bhubaneswar, Dec 7 (PTI) The world hockey body (FIH) has initiated an inquiry against Pakistan’s assistant coach Danish Kaleem for breaching security protocol, adding to the list of off-field issues plaguing the former champions at the ongoing men’s Hockey World Cup here. Danish has been called for a hearing by the FIH technical delegate on Saturday after he was charged for moving around in the stadium without having his accreditation card during the Pool D match against Malaysia on Wednesday. With the World Cup nearing halfway stage, Pakistan’s campaign is getting from bad to worse due to a host of issues, which include injury blow to skipper Muhammad Rizwan Senior and a one-match suspension to his deputy Ammad Butt. As if that was not enough, Hockey India has now lodged an official complaint with FIH’s Technical delegate Christian Deckenbrock of Germany against Danish for breaching security protocol and misbehaving with security persons inside the stadium. Pakistan’s chief coach Tauqeer Ahmad Dar admitted things are far from rosy for his side on and off the field ahead of their crucial Pool D match against Netherlands on Sunday. “The last few days have been very hard. Most energies are being wasted on things other than sports,” said Dar told reporters after a practice session here on Friday. “One of our main players, our skipper has fractured his toe and is out of the tournament. Our vice-captain has been banned by the Technical Delegate. The reason we have no clue. There was no action taken on the ground. No penalty corner was given and no green card was given.advertisement “One more inquiry about our coach that has been lodged by Hockey India. A new enquiry every day,” he added. Explaining the reasons behind the inquiry, Dar said: “Me and Danish sit on the terrace and watch match. And we communicate with walkie talky to Hasan Sardar (manager) and Rehan Butt (assistant coach). “At half time against Malaysia, I had sent him (Danish) with some notes to Hassan bhai. And when he was coming back, he was stopped by the security and they asked for his accreditation card. “Unfortunately, he forgot his card at the dressing room but the security people misbehaved with him. Yesterday they (Hockey India) lodged a complaint,” he added. Dar termed Ammad Butt’s suspension as completely unfair and said one of Pakistani players got stitches on his head after being hit by a Malaysian player but no action was initiated against him. “Hassan Sardar was emailed in the morning that there is a decision pending against Ammad Butt and that he has done something very wrong,” he said. He went to the enquiry, but there is no evidence but that is the decision of the Technical Delegate. We have appealed against that and I hope sanity prevails. “He was shown a video for just two or three minutes. It shows a Pakistani rusher trying to save a PC. A Malaysian forward is trying to score. One of our boys Abu Bakr got stitches because of a stick from a Malaysian boy. But that’s ok. It’s hockey not ping pong,” the coach said. A FIH spokesperson later confirmed that both the hearings that of Ammad Butt’s appeal against suspension and inquiry against Danish will be conducted on Saturday. “Both the hearings will be held tomorrow. I can only tell you anything more after tomorrow’s hearing,” the FIH official told PTI. Dar, meanwhile, said the off-field issues are having an adverse effect on the Pakistani players. “We are in bad shape mentally. We are focusing on things other than the ground. We are discussing who is going to come because of injury. Our top two are out of the ground,” he said. “18 players and 2 are not there. Only 15 left for the match against Holland. It is a major handicap as we are minus 1 tyre of a car against Netherlands, one of the toughest teams in the tournament,” the former Olympian said. Four-time champions Pakistan are currently placed third in Pool D behind Netherlands and table-toppers Germany and they need at least a draw against the Dutch to avoid early ouster from the tournament. “Pakistan cannot beat Holland on skill right now or on physical fitness. It is only the mental strength of the boys and the passion for hockey. The difference between their grassroots and our grass roots is like 300 per cent,” Dar said. “We have talked to the boys about what is going on off the field. We have said that you should be fully motivated. The place to take revenge is here. If they play according to their capacity and go beyond it, we can give a tough fight to Holland.” PTI SSC ATKATKadvertisementlast_img read more
