first_img Sport EN 09/10/2015 Upd. at 21:10 CEST David Silva limped out of Spain’s Euro 2016 qualifier with Luxembourg on Friday to leave Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini cursing the international break.  The 27-year-old striker scored five goals in his last outing in the Premier League, ending a mini drought, so this injury could not have come at a worse time.center_img The former Valencia midfielder tried to play on after taking a knock to his ankle, but was forced off in the ninth minute, with Juan Mata taking his place.  Pellegrini also saw Sergio Aguero withdrawn in the first half of Argentina’s defeat to Ecuador on Thursday.  Early estimations suggest Aguero could be out of action for around one month. City will now be sweating on the fitness of the 30-year-old, who has started the season in fine form for his club. last_img read more

first_imgWestern BureauDinthill Technical High’s winger Rojae Lane slammed in a hat-trick to inspire his team to a comfortable 6-0 victory over Herbert Morrison Technical in the ISSA/WATA daCosta Cup second round first leg match at Jarrett Park yesterday.Lane, 17, got his goals in the 24th, 31st, and 69th minutes to take his tally to six for the season. He says his main objective for the season is to win the daCosta Cup and finish as Dinthill’s all-time scorer.Rushan Parkinson (70th), Martin Beech (73rd) and Tevin Cheese (82nd) were the other scorers for Dinthill.”To be honest it was pretty easy for me. I just went out and did what my coach told me to do. I’m not being hype or anything but they were like cones to me. I work pretty hard in training so I just came out, put out the work and come out pretty successful in the end.”For the team, I want to bring them to the finals and help to bring home the trophy for Dinthill this year. Kaheem Parris scored 32 for Dinthill, I want to get more than that. Dinthill’s best mark is 34 by Rodave Murray and my aim is to go past that as well.”It’s a pretty good feeling, I like the team’s vibe and the way they move. We are one team, one unit. We get along very well on the field, talk to each other on what to do out there so I love playing with them.Coach of Dinthill, Xavier Gilbert, was impressed with his team’s performance and he singled out Lane saying he grabbed his opportunities with both hands.”Definitely, a very exciting and deceptive player who works extremely hard and is very integral to the way we play and our set-up. Sometimes a little bit hard to control off the field but out there you just have to let him have a go and will give you a 100 per cent … once you leave him loose he’ll punish you and we saw that today,” said Gilbert.”There are still some things we need to work on. We were a bit careless at some stages of the second half when they came at us with a lot of attacks. We took some time to realise, but as soon as we made the adjustments things were just smooth sailing from there,” he added.Meanwhile there was one surprise result in yesterday’s second round first leg matches as defending champions Rusea’s High were clipped 2-1 by Mile Gully.Yesterday’s resultsMile Gully 2 Rusea’s 1Green Island 0 Clarendon 5Vere 0 STETHS 2Titchfield 1 Cornwall 3H.

Questions & answers

first_imgQ: How did she end up behind bars? A: Superior Court Judge Michael T. Sauer originally sentenced Hilton in May to serve 45 days in jail for violating her probation in an alcohol-related reckless-driving case. She surrendered to sheriff’s deputies on June 3 and was booked at the Lynwood jail. She was released Thursday with an electronic-monitoring bracelet to serve the remainder of her sentence at home. Sauer ordered her to appear in court Friday and sent her back to jail to complete her 45-day term. Q: Why did the sheriff release Hilton in the first place? A: Baca said the heiress’ release was based on her “severe medical problems.” Q: What’s wrong with her? A: Baca said he couldn’t reveal the exact nature of her condition because of confidentiality issues, but he characterized her problems as “psychological.” Hilton’s spokesman had no comment on her health. Q: Is she a danger to herself? A: Baca said Hilton is being temporarily housed at a facility that “has a more intense form of medical support and will watch her behavior so that there isn’t anything that is harmfully done to herself by herself.” Q: Will the sheriff free her early again? A: Only if the court shortens her sentence, Whitmore said. “We will comply with the court’s decision.” Q: Will she serve all 45 days? A: Probably not. Hilton will serve about 18 days, Baca said Friday. State law requires that inmates get time off their sentences for each day they serve. Hilton is expected to serve 23 days of her 45-day sentence. Hilton was credited with both her time served in jail and at home, so by Saturday she had completed seven days of her sentence. Q: Are other inmates usually released before they’ve served their full terms? A: Yes. County jails are overcrowded, Baca said, and most misdemeanor offenders serve just 10 percent of their sentence. “Under our 10 percent early release program, (Hilton) would have not served any time in our jail or would have been directly put on home electric monitoring system,” he said Friday. Q: Are other prisoners released because of medical conditions? A: Yes. “It happens all the time,” Whitmore said, depending on the nature of the offense. Nonviolent offenders typically serve 10 percent of their sentence, he said. Q: Will Hilton ever work in Hollywood again? A: Of course. A: The 26-year-old is undergoing medical and psychiatric examination at the Correctional Treatment Center at Los Angeles County’s Twin Towers jail facility downtown. Q: Does she have a cellmate? A: No. “Most of the individuals in the Correctional Treatment Center are alone,” said Sheriff’s Department spokesman Steve Whitmore. Q: Will she go back to the same isolated cell she was in earlier in the week at the Century Regional Detention Center in Lynwood? A: Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca said he would determine the best place to house the heiress when he learns the results of her medical and psychiatric exams. Paris Hilton was in jail, then out, then back again as her bizarre case became more erratic than the driving that landed the hotel heiress in hot water. On Saturday, she was still behind bars, a long way from the red carpet she strolled down a week ago at the MTV Movie Awards, and the subject of endless Internet chatter and questions about her fate. To help sort it out, here are some answers to those questions: Q: Where is Hilton now? last_img read more

Councilman Jack Weiss said he was concerned that if city officials moved immediately to close the school, children and their parents would be left with no options. But an aide to Councilman Dennis Zine said he was frustrated by the school’s continued violations and would seek to force it to move. Jerry Simmons, an attorney for the school, said Ivy Academia already is looking for a new site. The council committee’s recommendation calls for a review in five months. rick.orlov@dailynews.com A Woodland Hills charter school, under fire for city permit violations, may go on operating, but under tight restrictions, while owners seek a new site. The City Council’s Planning and Land Use Management Committee on Tuesday urged the full City Council to allow Ivy Academia on Fallbrook Avenue to remain open despite problems complying with city laws on the number of students allowed and some other issues. “I don’t want to … stop the success of this school,” Councilman Jose Huizar said. “There are ways we can mitigate the noise levels and other problems at the school.” Huizar also urged the full council to allow the school to have 154 students, 40 more than originally authorized.

first_img8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Tags:#web#Web 2.0 Related Posts Slashdot pointed to a new Tim Berners-Lee interview about the Semantic Web. While on face value it’s YASWI by Sir Tim (Yet Another Semantic Web Interview), there are some great quotes in this one. e.g.When asked if the Semantic Web is just a way to automate things that a human would do, Sir Tim replied:“This is more like giving you a program which can do all the things which your MIS department could write programs to do but doesnít have time to. But it is still a program. Just as the World Wide Web is still a document.“(emphasis mine)That’s an important point – just as Amazon can be said to be more a virtual agent than a website nowadays, the Semantic Web is a dynamic program not a static document. The generation of the Web we’re in now is almost a living one – it’s about movement and application of information. If not quite living, certainly information on the Web is much more social than it was 5 or 10 years ago. It’s being used by people to connect with each other on a grander scale than even Ted Nelson ever dreamed.Sir Tim goes on to say:“Bit by bit, link by link, the data becomes connected, interwoven. The exciting thing is serendipitous reuse of data: one person puts data up there for one thing, and another person uses it another way.”Again, it’s the usage of information that is key to Sir Tim’s vision of the Semantic Web.The next bit that caught my eye is something that will make Marc Canter fall off his chair with joy. Sir Tim mentioned FOAF as an example of a Semantic Web application:“If you want to play with the Semantic Web, you can make a friend-of-a-friend file. In a FOAF file [the data component of a personal home page, formatted in a standardized way], you can publish stuff about yourself, your organization, your publication, places, or photographs.”Sir Tim says that FOAF “shows the power of the reuse of information”.And to wrap up, take this quote:“The Semantic Web is just the application of weblike design to data; it will be many more decades before we will be able to say we have really implemented the Web idea in the full, if ever we can.”(emphasis mine)That’s something my friends in the Web Design community will appreciate. Nowadays it’s not just about designing a beautiful website, it’s about designing for re-use of information. In a way, that’s what people are already doing with RSS – designing with data.center_img Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… richard macmanus Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hostinglast_img read more

first_imgAmerican Public University System (APUS) recently announced Momentum, a new, competency-based education (CBE) program designed to further enhance the flexibility and affordability of delivering innovative, career-relevant offerings for working adults.“Momentum, unlike traditional academic programs, focuses on the achievement of knowledge and skills, providing a more flexible degree path to non-traditional students seeking an alternative to prevailing schedule and tuition constraints,” said APUS Director of Alternative Learning Cali Morrison.Four initial programs will offer competency starts beginning March 6, including: BA, Criminal Justice; BA, Emergency and Disaster Management; BS, Fire Science Management; and BA, Retail Management. Additional offerings are currently being developed for planned launch in mid-2017. Each program will be delivered via APUS’s robust Sakai platform, with adaptive learning integration by partner Realizeit to help enhance student engagement and outcomes.- Sponsor – All programs are aligned with current professional standards by means of ongoing review by APUS Industry Advisory Councils, including support from strategic retail partners. Tailored learning assessments allow students to effectively apply their knowledge, skills and abilities, preparing them to be more competitive in their existing career or in transitioning to a new one.“Instead of attending structured classes, students demonstrate their mastery of competencies at their pace with guidance from a faculty mentor and subject matter expert, allowing them to move directly into the next competency without waiting for a new term to begin,” said Morrison. “Since programs have a fixed-term cost, the more competencies completed each term, the more saved on the total degree cost.”Prospective students must have an associate of arts degree, associate of science degree or bachelor’s degree to participate and cannot transfer from a traditional APUS degree program. They can complete unlimited program competencies within a 16-week term for $2,500 with a minimum of three, and maximum of twelve, concurrent competencies.
