Reports – Man City ready bumper bid for Barcelona, PSG and Chelsea target

first_img1 Juventus star Paul Pogba Manchester City are ready to offer Paul Pogba a whopping £240,000-a-week in order to lure him to the Etihad, according to reports in France.The midfielder is one of the most in-demand players in European football, with clubs all over the continent competing for his signature.Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain have been linked with world record bids, while Bayern Munich and Chelsea also hold an interest.However, according to L’Equipe, Manchester City are ready to blow all of them out of the water by offering Pogba a huge salary.The deal for the Frenchman would take place in the summer of 2016, though, once UEFA’s Financial Fair Play regulations against City have loosened.The 22-year-old is also wary of moving prior to next summer’s Euros as any transfer could affect his place in Didier Deschamps’ France squad.For that reason, both parties are working on laying the groundwork for a blockbuster move in July 2016.last_img read more

YouPhonics Launches Music Collaboration Tool

first_imgTop Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting July 1 marks the soft launch of the music collaboration startup YouPhonics. The brainchild of Aidan Nulman, YouPhonics allows users to record, share, and compose tracks together via a web-based interface.A musician himself, Nulman created the project to help address some of the obstacles that musicians sometimes face when they want to collaborate: distance between musicians, a shared interface, knowing the right musicians and being able to access one another’s skills. “When I moved away from my band in 2006, everything fell apart,” says Nulman. “I haven’t really spoken with the guys since then, even though we practiced and performed together week-in, week-out for over two years.”Stems and SoundsYouPhonics allows you to record or upload tracks. These become “stems” that you can share, download, listen and edit. Stems – yours and others’ – can be mixed in order to create new tracks. No surprise for a collaborative site, the site places a lot of emphasis on the community aspect, with a social profile, comments and “like” features. And Nulman says YouPhones plans to add more social integration options soon. Tags:#start#startups A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Related Posts 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Personalized Beta Invitations and The Scalability of NiceYouPhonics is built with the help of Toronto-based Jet Cooper and BNOTIONS, but clearly the project rests on Nulman, who was once called the music industry’s Zuckerberg. As a solo entrepreneur, Nulman take a very personal and personalized approach to publicizing YouPhonics. (He wrote an apology to me last week, for example, when he didn’t have a press kit ready when I signed up for the beta.) Will being nice scale? Maybe not, but when I asked Nulman about all the personable and personalized emails and invitations, he said it makes for more “meaningful interactions.” Since meaningful interaction and collaboration are what YouPhonics hopes to foster musically as well, it seems like a good philosophy (and hey, good manners).YouPhonics’ competitors include other companies offering online music collaboration services, notably Indaba Music and Kompoz. YouPhonics has raised Friends and Family funding and is considering angel funding at this time. audrey watters Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic…last_img read more

7 Steps to an Energy-Efficient House: 4. Windows

first_imgEditor’s introduction: With energy prices rising again, many homeowners are planning energy-efficiency improvements to their homes. But most people are unsure of where to begin, and even seasoned builders don’t always know which priorities should rise to the top of the list. Betsy Pettit, an architect at Building Science Corporation , recommends starting where you can get the most bang for the buck.Step 4: Replace your windowsTable of Contents:1. The Basement2. The Roof3. The Walls4. The Windows5. Mechanicals6. Appliances7. Renewable EnergyWith the bottom and top of the house sealed and insulated, as well as the walls, windows represent the next opportunity. Old windows often leak both air and water into the house. They might not open and close properly, and are sometimes be obscured by unattractive storm windows and screens that reduce the amount of light that can enter. Moreover, they rarely have low-e glazing.Properly installed Energy Star (or better) windows seal the holes in the walls to keep out water and weather extremes. If high-quality glazing is specified, the windows can admit useful solar gain during the winter, while still preventing excessive heat loss at night. To prevent summer overheating, the best glazing for east and west windows is usually low-solar-gain glazing.Properly specified new replacement windows should reduce your energy bills. Since replacement windows are expensive, though, don’t expect a fast payback on your investment. But if you decide to replace your windows, at least you can enjoy higher comfort from Day One.This article is adapted from Betsy Pettit’s Remodeling for Energy Efficiency in Fine Homebuilding magazine.

Court says no to plea for CBI probe against Unnao doctors

first_imgA Delhi court has refused to direct the CBI to initiate a probe against the doctors who had treated the father of the Unnao rape survivor when he was injured and in judicial custody, saying it was the prerogative of the CBI to conduct the prosecution.District Judge Dharmesh Sharma was hearing a plea filed by the counsel of the woman, who was allegedly raped by Uttar Pradesh MLA Kuldeep Sengar in 2017.The court, however, said that if during the course of the trial any evidence surfaces about the role played by any of the doctors in the entire episode, appropriate orders would be passed.Senior Public Prosecutor Ashok Bhartendu had opposed the plea saying that nothing has come up in their investigation so far to call the doctors as accused before the court.The plea, filed by advocate Dharmendra Mishra, had alleged that the doctors at the district hospital deliberately did not examine the father of the woman properly at the behest of Sengar.Charges framed The court had earlier framed charges against Sengar and nine others for allegedly assaulting and framing the rape survivor’s father in an arms case and murdering him in judicial custody.last_img read more

The players appeal and after taking his time, umpire Dharamsena rules the Indian opener out. Shikhar has a chat with his skipper and then decides to go for the review. The Snicko doesn’t detect an edge and the Hawk Eye shows three reds. Dhawan has to walk back after playing a superb knock. He still will be disappointed not to convert it into three figures.

Release shot! You can’t bowls such looseners to him and that too in the kind of form he is in. Shortish delivery, Dhawan latches onto it in a flash and pulls it over mid-wicket for half a dozen.20.17 IST: WICKET! Ajinkya Rahane departs for a well-played 62. Joseph draws first blood. Slower one on a fuller length, Rahane looks to loft it over mid on but the lack of pace does him in. He ends up chipping it straight to Holder at mid on, who after completing the catch throws the ball in the air in celebration. Much-needed breakthrough this for WI! They need more of these. India 132/1 (25 overs) vs West Indies20.12 IST: FOUR! In the gap! Another short delivery from Bishoo. He camps back and pulls powerfully through square leg.

He needed some runs under his kitty to boost his confidence. Coming back to the ball, it was pitched wide outside off. Rahane went after it, got an outside edge and the ball ran away to the third man fence. India 104/0 (21 overs) vs West Indies19.44 IST: Drinks break.

Superb timing and the it beats mid off comfortably to race to the fence.19.20 IST: FOUR! On a length outside off, Rahane sits back and delays the cut. Doesn’t get it totally off the middle but it beats the first slip fielder and runs away to the third man fence.

Dhawan gets hit again, this time courtesy the fielder. Back of a length ball, he taps it to short cover as they go for a quick single. Powell’s throw at the bowler’s end hits Shikhar on the left elbow. The same region where he copped a blow few overs ago. Slight hold up as the physio comes out to attend to Dhawan. More of the magic spray then and a drink for the batsmen.18.59 IST: FOUR! INNOVATIVE FROM DHAWAN! Shortish and outside off, he stays back and jump a bit before slapping it over cover. A little bit of Caribbean flair in the stroke and clears the infield with ease. Almost went all the way for a biggie. India 31/0 (6.3 overs) vs West Indies18.56 IST: FOUR! First boundary for Rahane. He’s been slow to start but this should ease his nerves a bit. Shortish outside off, he stands tall and punches it sweetly square of the wicket on the off side to find the fence. Sublime shot. India 27/0 (6 overs) vs West Indies18.50 IST: Back of a length around middle, Dhawan gets back to work across the line but is hit on the forearm as the ball goes to the off side. He must have got hurt a bit there. Dhawan calls for the physio who comes out with the magic spray to ease the pain. That might have stung him for sure.18.44 IST: FOUR! Finds the fence! Once again width on offer and Dhawan pounces on it. On a good length but perhaps a bit wide outside off, he reaches out and flays it through point. Struck it well to get a boundary.18.37 IST: FOUR! SHOT! This man is in sublime form. Back of a length outside off, Dhawan stands tall and punches it elegantly through point. He absolutely loves that area, just cannot bowl there.18.31 IST: Wide! Jason Holder starts with a back of a length delivery wide outside off, left alone to the keeper. Too much width and that’s a wide.18.30 IST: Players and umpires are out there in the middle. SHIKHAR DHAWAN and AJINKYA RAHANE to open the batting for India. It shall be JASON HOLDER to take the first new ball for West Indies.

While India have gone from strength to strength, West Indies are struggling to stay relevant, especially with the rise of Afghanistan and Ireland.The series may appear to be devoid of relevance after the hoopla of the Champions Trophy but it does hold significance for both teams. While the West Indies would want to put up a sterling show against one of the strongest teams in world cricket, India have the chance to move up to No.2 in the ICC ODI rankings if they win the series 5-0.India might have a little more at stake here. After the recent resignation of Anil Kumble as coach following differences with the captain, Virat Kohli would want to show the team can go on without the former. Can they do it? Will they do it?AJINKYA RAHANE TO GET ANOTHER CHANCEVirat Kohli has confirmed India will open with Ajinkya Rahane in all the five ODIs. This is another lease of life for the gifted batsman. With Rohit Sharma being rested for the series, his Mumbai teammate Rahane would want to show his class in limited-overs cricket.WILL RISHABH PANT GET A LOOK-IN?India have three wicketkeepers on this tour – MS Dhoni, Dinesh Karthik and Rishabh Pant. Obviously, Pant has been included to give him a feel of the Indian dressing-room but would it be fair to not give him a single game?

Mississippi State Decided 1st Team QB Reps Via Rock, Paper, Scissors Game

first_imgMississippi State QB Nick Fitzgerald speaking to media.YouTube/Ben WaitWith the graduation of star quarterback Dak Prescott, Mississippi State is one of many SEC programs with a battle at the position on its hands. Four players—Nick Fitzgerald, Elijah Staley, Nick Tiano, and Damian Williams—are vying for the starting job, and no player has set himself apart.Mississippi State’s QBs are so close, in fact, that they had to play ‘rock, paper, scissors’ to determine which would take first team reps. Today’s winner: Fitzgerald. He spoke about the unique process after today’s practice.Video via Ben Wait of The Dispatch:Fitzgerald joked that the rock, paper, scissors win gave him a nice confidence boost heading into camp.“I won rock-paper-scissors, so if anything, my confidence in that game is pretty high right now.”Rock, paper, scissors skills aside, replacing Prescott will be no easy task for Fitzgerald, or whichever Bulldog quarterback wins the job. He may be the top quarterback in program history. In 2015, he put together a fantastic 3,793 passing yard, 29 touchdown, five interception season. On top of that, Prescott ran for 588 yards and 10 touchdowns. That built on an impressive junior year, when Prescott piled up 4,435 total yards and 38 combined touchdowns.Williams is the lone Mississippi State quarterback with a start under his belt. During his career, Williams is 37-for-70 for 434 yards, three touchdowns, and two interceptions. In 2015, head coach Dan Mullen redshirted him.Last season, Fitzgerald served as Prescott’s primary back-up. He completed 11-of-14 passes for 235 yards and three touchdowns, with no interceptions.Elijah Staley threw five passes last season, completing three for 51 yards and a score.Redshirt freshman Nick Tiano is the only of the four players without any game experience, making him the wild card of the battle.Williams and Fitzgerald seem like the favorites in this one, but it will take more than rock, paper, scissors skills to compete with the likes of Alabama and rival Ole Miss in the SEC West.[Saturday Down South]last_img read more

New Delhi Infighting in the Haryana Congress reac

first_imgNew Delhi: Infighting in the Haryana Congress reached the doorstep of party president Sonia Gandhi with former PCC chief Ashok Tanwar and his supporters protesting on Wednesday outside her 10 Janpath residence here alleging corruption in distribution of tickets for the upcoming assembly polls. As his supporters raised slogans against management committee chief Bhupender Hooda, Tanwar alleged that tickets were being distributed on whims and fancies and were being “sold”, ignoring those who had worked for years. Also Read – Personal life needs to be respected: Cong on reports of Rahul’s visit abroadPeople are saying that the ticket for the Sohna Assembly seat has been sold for Rs 5 crore, he said. “Some people said in Rohtak that the party had lost its way. When something is given to them, then the party is on the right path,” Tanwar said in reference to Hooda’s remarks at the August 18 ‘Maha Parivartan Rally’ in Rohtak where he had said that the Congress had “lost direction”. “For five years and eight months we have shed blood and sweat,” he said. In a bid to end factionalism in the party ahead of assembly polls in Haryana, the Congress last month named Kumari Selja chief of its state unit, replacing Tanwar, and appointed Hooda as chairperson of the election management committee. Also Read – Firms staying closed 10 days a month due to recession, govt doing nothing: Priyanka GandhiHooda had openly come out against Tanwar, who is known to be close to Rahul Gandhi and had been state unit chief since 2014. Tanwar’s remarks came ahead of the release of the list of nominees by the party for the Assembly polls. Hooda’s supporters have claimed the situation in the Congress worsened due to Tanwar and he is blaming the former CM as he is upset at being removed from his post. Congress president Sonia had appointed Hooda the Congress Legislative Party (CLP) leader, and by virtue of that leader of opposition in the state assembly.last_img read more
