Reno’s new boys poised to invigorate the club

first_imgWESTERN BUREAU:Red Stripe Premier League club FC Reno has been busy during the January transfer window, and Dean Malloy, the club’s manager, believes the new recruits have already started to make an impact.Six players were brought and two left, and Malloy is confident they will help pull the club up the standings and finish the season on a high.”We have been doing some business and, so far, we are happy with the players we have brought in,” Malloy said.”Two players have left the club, including central midfielder Leonard Rankine, who joined Western Confederation Super League club Sandals Whitehouse.Joining the former three-time champions are two attacking players in Anthony Markes, formerly of Harbour View FC, and Taj Coley, who played for Appleton in the St Elizabeth Major League.It’s in attack that FC Reno are mostly bereft of talent, so with the addition of Markes and Coley, they should at least be converting more chances.FRESH SQUAD”These players have freshened up the squad, and the team is beginning to look the part once again,” Malloy said.On Sunday, while none of the new recruits got onto the score sheet, FC Reno posted a hard-working 2-0 win over Cavalier SC at the Frome Sports Complex.Romario Downswell and Dershan Bryan scored in the seventh and 91st minutes, respectively, to give Reno their first win in five matches.Sunday’s win comes on the heels of another decent performance, as they played to a draw in their previous outing and are looking a lot more settled.”We are hoping that the new players will add some impetus and help steer the club away from relegation,” said Malloy.”It is fair to say that we are charting a new way forward, and all the players in our squad will have a role to play in moving the club forward,” he added.last_img read more

3 Tools to Sync Your Files with Google Docs

first_imgsarah perez Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Syncplicity is available in multiple versions for anyone using Google Docs. A free personal edition provides 2 GB of online storage for up to 2 computers while a $15/month personal edition offers 50 GB of storage for up to 5 computers. Businesses can sign up for a separate plan which starts at $45/month for 3 users and goes up from there. 3. OffisyncOffisync is a Microsoft Office plugin which integrates Google Docs directly within your Office software. (See our earlier review here). This is useful for those who only want to upload specific files to Google Docs instead of automatically syncing entire folders. Once installed, the plugin adds an additional menu to Office’s software (either Office 2003 or 2007) where you are provided with buttons which allow you to open, save, search, collaborate, and email your Google Docs files. The software works on Windows PCs and is available for personal users of Google Docs or Google Apps. An Enterprise version provides the same functionality to business users by providing integration with Google’s website building software, Google Sites, a service which provides a simplified alternative to SharePoint. 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Related Posts For personal users of Google Docs, the biggest drawback to Memeo is that the service is only available to users of Google Apps Premier edition, a business-level version of the service which also offers calendaring, groups, Web site creation tools, and video sharing to corporate users for $50 per user per year. Memeo Connect itself costs an additional $9/year. 2. SyncplicitySyncplicity allows a Google Docs user the ability to access, manage, sync, share, and backup their files online. The downloadable software program seamlessly integrates with Windows Explorer for file management purposes. (The Mac software beta program was discontinued in July of last year but the company tells us they’re working on an entirely new version right now.) The Explorer integration is a decidedly helpful feature for those who don’t want to change the way they already work. In addition, unlike Memeo Connect, automatic synchronization is possible. And that synchronization isn’t only with Google Docs – the software can also sync files to its own website as well as other computers running the Syncplicity software. That means your files are not only available on other machines, they’re backed up in multiple places online too. Another benefit to Syncplicity’s service is its “restore” feature which lets you undelete files using their Web application. Those accidentally deleted files are immediately restored to your PC’s hard drive with a click of a button. When Google announced an upgrade to their Google Docs service earlier this month, a company blog post also mentioned several third-party applications which can help make the transition to the online service easier. With these apps, you can transfer and synchronize your local files to Google Docs without having to upload them one-by-one. But which application is right for you? We took a look at the options Google suggested and have summarized the features, drawbacks and pricing information below. In addition, we also reviewed one other application not specifically mentioned in the Google blog post that may be of use to those moving to the cloud-based service.1. Memeo Connect for Google AppsMemeo Connect is a desktop application available for both Mac and PC (XP and higher) which lets you view files on both your desktop and within Google Docs. In the software program, files and folders already online are downloaded to your computer. Local files not yet online can then be moved to the appropriate Google Docs folder via drag-and-drop. The service is relatively simple to use as it presents your documents in an easy-to-navigate window while also incorporating Google’s online features like starred files and shared folders. One major drawback to Memeo Connect is that there’s no automatic synchronization option. That means you can’t monitor a local folder or folders for new files or changes and then have those documents seamlessly synced to Google’s online service. This feature should arrive in a future update, however, so don’t let its lack of inclusion be a deal breaker for you if the service fulfills all your other needs. A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Tags:#Google#How To#web#Web Office With any one of the three tools above, you can easily transition from a desktop-based computing environment to one where your Office documents are created, managed, and maintained in the cloud. However, it’s important to note that Google Docs isn’t the only online office suite available. Companies like Zoho, Adobe, ThinkFree, and others also provide online alternatives to Microsoft Office. In addition, Microsoft itself recently launched its own Office Web Applications into beta. If you’re a user of any of the programs mentioned here, let us know about your experiences.

How OpenLeaks is Likely to Work

first_imgcurt hopkins Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Tags:#Government#privacy#web Related Posts UploadingLeakers will be able to upload the documents via a “dedicated submission website” integrated with the media partner’s web presence but funneling the information through the OpenLeaks architecture. The leakers and the organizations via which they upload will be insulated from one another, as all leaks will go through the OpenLeaks site’s structure before it goes to anyone, regardless of where the leaker and the recipients are located. Given the political fallout from Wikileaks, the on-site uploads may prove a hard sell, though Domscheit-Berg claims the organization currently has about a dozen partners and is reviewing a large number of partnership applications..If, after a specified time period has passed and the designated recipient elects not to use the leak, the OpenLeaks process will make the leak more widely available, though how they will do this is uncertain. Uncertain as well is whether a leaker may be able to designate a sole recipient, with the uploaded documents being purged if that recipient passes. Corporate CultureDomscheit-Berg has said he hopes for the organization to be more transparent than Wikileaks, a notoriously closed system, though it is uncertain how that transparency will be achieved. Assange has written about Wikileaks as a government-impeding service, arguing that decreasing the efficiency of the current system of many governments will bring about a new, presumably better, system. OpenLeaks has made no such statements and seems to be trying to stay away from imposing either editorial intent or political intent, beyond a belief in the value of transparency, in government as well as other spheres. Open SourceThe code will, presumably, be open source, as one person associated with OpenLeaks has said, an aspect of the undertaking is “encouraging others to start similar projects.” Elsewhere, Domscheit-Berg has described Wikileaks as having “lost its open-source promise.” Other FeaturesVersions of the website will be available in six languages, including legal and technical information. The OpenLeaks website will aggregate links to stories and other publications making use of leaked materials. The site will itself be overseen and guided by a foundation charged with those duties.

They argued that its founder, Julian Assange, was autocratic and heedless of the safety of those whose names appeared in the leaks the organization released. He also over-focused on the U.S. and his political goals were untenable. In November, the group announced it was creating a rival organization, to be called OpenLeaks. Although the site was scheduled to go live last week, it has been delayed until January. So we have cobbled together news reports and the founders’ words to sketch out an idea of how the site will work. The Big PictureOpenLeaks will provide whistle-blowers a way to upload leaked documents and to send them to particular recipients, such as newspapers, news channels, radio stations, non profit organizations, labor unions, governmental oversight groups and others. OpenLeaks itself, unlike Wikileaks, will not publish the leaked documents on its site. By-passing the editorial function is intended to keep the organization unencumbered political considerations. last_img read more

Baseball Gets A Rude Welcome To The Age Of Cyber Espionage

In recent years, it’s become clear that sports has entered its Age of Data, with dueling analytics departments vying for breakthroughs and proprietary metrics increasingly shaping how teams are built. And perhaps there’s no better confirmation of that trend than the inevitable bombshell on Tuesday: The FBI is investigating the St. Louis Cardinals over allegations that they stole data from the Houston Astros in a computer-hacking scheme.According to The New York Times, the FBI found evidence that Cardinals team officials broke into the Astros’ “Ground Control” information network by using the old passwords of Jeff Luhnow, currently Houston’s general manager and formerly the vice president of scouting and player development for St. Louis. Investigators told the Times that the breach compromised Houston’s internal data regarding player evaluation — both scouting and statistical in nature — and potential transactions. (Part of the same database was leaked last June as well.)It was, in essence, the first known case of corporate espionage between sports teams. In some ways, it’s surprising that it took so long for such an incident to surface in the supercompetitive world of sports. During the 1980s and ’90s, the rise of computing — and, consequently, data collection and analysis — led to a rapid proliferation of industrial espionage cases in the business world. (It’s estimated now that the number of corporate hacking incursions doubles every year.) Just as the digital age offered far easier, more systematic methods of data storage than ever before, it also made information theft an efficient means of gaining a competitive advantage.Baseball has had its own long history of dishonesty, from sign-stealing to doctoring the ball. (“If you’re not cheating,” former Chicago Cubs first baseman Mark Grace once said, “you’re not trying hard enough.”) And it’s not uncommon for team officials (and players) to switch franchises, presumably taking whatever knowledge they acquired at their old job with them when they go. According to Baseball-Reference’s historical database, 28 percent of all top-level baseball executives — general managers, scouting directors and farm directors — held the job for multiple teams over their careers.That’s why it’s a little hard to believe that, as the FBI suggested, the motive here was “retaliation” against Luhnow for leaving the Cardinals and starting a new database system with the Astros. Because it’s so widely acknowledged that everyone’s front-office lifespan is mind-bogglingly short, comings and goings between front offices are almost always matters of business, not fuel for personal vendettas.It is easy, however, to understand the story as the latest step a team is willing to take to gain an edge. While the Astros weren’t the earliest adopters of sabermetrics, there’s plenty of evidence that they’re in the current vanguard of advanced statistical thinking.1The list of Baseball Prospectus alumni in the team’s front office is staggering. In other words, if you were going to begin spying on MLB teams for their proprietary data, Houston might be the one to start with.If this scandal deepens, the Cardinals may well see the legitimacy of their recent accomplishments questioned, much like the New England Patriots in the wake of Spygate (and, subsequently, Deflate-gate).St. Louis won three National League pennants and two World Series with Luhnow in its front office, and the team also has the best record in baseball since he departed. Over that span, the Cardinals have exceeded expectations, beating their projected wins by the fifth-largest margin of any team in baseball. In that department, they’re not outliers like the Patriots are at avoiding fumbles, for instance, but it will be interesting to watch how much their transactions and personnel decisions will be scrutinized for signs that they used the hacked data to their advantage.In the meantime, this might be the opening salvo in baseball’s era of cyber espionage — a fate that, in retrospect, seems like an inevitable consequence of the game’s widespread adoption of data analysis over the past decade and a half.

Jordan Hall From suspended to steward

Two weeks removed from serving a two-game suspension, junior running back Jordan Hall has been named a captain for Saturday’s game against Michigan State. Hall, along junior defensive back and sophomore defensive back Corey Brown, was suspended for the games against Toledo and Akron for receiving impermissible benefits in the form of $200 from a former booster at a Cleveland-area charity event. The NCAA reinstated his eligibility before the Sept. 17 game against the Miami Hurricanes. “He’s a big leader in the locker room; he does a great job,” Fickell said. “He’s handled everything that we’ve asked him to handle with class and dignity.” Hall was all smiles when discussing his captain status with the media. “It’s definitely an honor,” Hall said. “It’ll be one of my greatest memories at Ohio State and it’s definitely exciting.” Hall has improved since his return to the field, rushing for 87 yards in an otherwise-offensive disaster against Miami. He followed up that performance with 84 yards and a touchdown against Colorado. Hall also had a 90-yard kickoff return against the Buffaloes to set up a touchdown. Fickell said Hall’s competitive nature on offense and special teams is what sets him apart from other players. “There’s guys with all types of abilities. When you get to college … those abilities becomes closer and closer,” Fickell said. “I think that’s the one thing I would say about Jordan. Yes, he’s very good in the things that he does, but he’s a competitor.” He added, “I’ll tell you right now, if we took him over on defense, he’d start somewhere on defense too because of the competitor that he is.” Hall said he was appreciative of Fickell’s support. “It feels good because he’s the head coach, he makes all the decisions,” Hall said. “If he feels that way about a player, then you obviously feel good about yourself.” Fickell alluded to the team’s current suspended players, senior wide receiver DeVier Posey, senior offensive tackle Mike Adams, senior running back Dan “Boom” Herron and defensive end Solomon Thomas as potential future captains as well. “We understand that we learn from our mistakes, but we’re not gonna throw guys away,” Fickell said. “That’s kind of the reason we wanted to have game captains the whole season, so that we could make sure we could bring everybody … whatever their situation.” Posey, Adams and Herron are set to return next week against Nebraska, and Hall said they have been leaders throughout the season. “They are still full-fledged members of the team,” Hall said. “We look at them as leaders.” Ohio State will face Michigan State this Saturday at 3:30 p.m. at Ohio Stadium. read more

Baseball Ohio State drops home opener swept in doubleheader in Cincinnati to

Ohio State then-junior catcher, now shortstop, Jalen Washington bats against Northwestern on March 26, 2016 at Bill Davis Stadium. Credit: Edward Sutelan | Lantern reporterThe Ohio State baseball team has never encountered much trouble opening up the season at home. They were undefeated at home under head coach Greg Beals and have not lost since 2004, but that streak ended this weekend, as did their three-game winning streak as they were swept by Xavier. The team is now 8-11 on the season, while Xavier improves to an even 10-10.The team was able to find the power stroke as they received six home runs over the weekend. This home run production was not spread out too far, however, as only three players combined for those six.Junior second baseman Noah McGowan blasted three home runs in Game 3, senior shortstop Jalen Washington knocked two over the fence in Game 2 and junior left fielder Tyler Cowles had one of his own in Game 2 as well.Game 1The Buckeyes took the Musketeers to extra innings, but surrendered a run in the top of the 13th inning to lose their home opener, 3-2.Xavier may have been on the road, but they were still able to get things going early. Their first batter of the game reached first, stole second and later advanced on to third base to give the Musketeers their first scoring chance of the night. Freshman first baseman Nate Monastra was able to come through for his team and delivered an RBI single up the middle to give his team the early 1-0 lead.The second inning started off quite similar to the first. Again, Xavier lead off the inning with a base hit, this time a double. The runner then advanced on to third on a single that put runners on the corners.Senior center fielder Matt Fallon followed that up with a successful squeeze bunt attempt to the first baseman was that pushed across the second Xavier run of the night, giving them a 2-0 lead.It did not take long for the Buckeyes to respond. In the bottom of the third inning, a walk, error and sacrifice bunt put runners on second and third for senior shortstop Jalen Washington, who lifted a sacrifice fly to center field to put OSU on the board.Junior second baseman Noah McGowan then followed up Washington’s sacrifice fly with the Buckeyes’ first hit of the game that knotted the game up at two.The score remained tied at two apiece until the top of the 13th inning. The Musketeers loaded up the bases on a pair of hits and a walk before the Buckeyes struck out the next two batters. With the bases loaded and two away, senior right fielder Joe Gellenbeck took the six-pitch walk that pushed across the would-be winning run and bring the score to 3-2.The most potent force at the dish for OSU was again junior center fielder Tre’ Gantt. The leadoff hitter for OSU continued his hot streak into the home opener by delivering three hits in five at-bats. He has now reached base in all 17 games and owns a team-leading .365 batting average. Game 2Hoping to gain some momentum coming off their home-opener, the Buckeyes led the game late, but blew a 4-3 lead and lost in the bottom of the ninth, 5-4.For the second game in a row, the Musketeers got started early. In the bottom of the second inning, a pair of walks and a single loaded up the bases with nobody out. A sacrifice fly put the team up early 1-0 before a squeeze bunt scored another run. The scoring finished with Gallagher lining only the second hit of the game up the middle to put Xavier on top 3-0.The Scarlet and Gray did not wait long before responding. Half an inning later in the top of the third, junior left fielder Tyler Cowles blasted a home run over the left field wall to bring the score to 3-1.With the score now 3-1, the Buckeyes were looking for some more offense and they found it in the form of co-captain Washington. In the top of the fourth inning, he crushed OSU’s second home run of the game over the left field wall and brought the game to within one.The following inning, the team again found some offense off the bat of Washington. With a runner on first and two away, Washington again connected off Xavier’s starter and sent his second home run of the game out and gave OSU its first lead of the game.After being held scoreless for four straight innings, Xavier lifted a sacrifice fly in the seventh to tie up the game at four.The game stayed tied until the bottom of the ninth inning. A hit-by-pitch, walk and single loaded up the bases with one away for Xavier junior shortstop Mitch Gallagher. Gallagher lifted his second sacrifice fly of the game to center field, bringing home the winning run for the team and sealing the 5-4 victory.This was Washington’s first game batting third in the lineup and he delivered exactly what the team was looking for. The fourth-year co-captain came to the plate four times and finished the game with two hits (both home runs), two runs scored and three RBI’s.Game 3OSU built up three leads against Xavier, but blew all three and lost 6-5 in walk-off fashion for the second-straight game.Coming off a loss in which they gave up three early runs, the Buckeyes were all set to get on the scoreboard as early as possible. With the game still tied at zero in the top of the third, McGowan stepped up to the plate and launched the ball over the left field fence to put his team ahead 1-0.The Buckeyes had the early lead, but it would not take long for the Musketeers to respond. With two outs and a runner on second base in the bottom of the third, junior designated hitter Blaine Griffiths doubled to right field and tied the game up at one.The game stayed tied until the seventh inning when McGowan came to bat with runners on the corners. For the second time, he homered to left field to put the Buckeyes ahead 4-1.Xavier again responded quickly to the offensive strike by the Buckeyes. The first batter of the bottom of the seventh inning homered to left field to bring the game to only a two-run gap.But the Musketeers weren’t done there. The next inning, they put runners on first and second for junior catcher Nate Soria, who singled to left to bring Xavier to within one. Another single loaded up the bases for junior left fielder Will LaRue, who walked to tie the game. Xavier had tied the game up, but the McGowan show was still going on. OSU’s second baseman stepped up to the plate for the fifth time and for the third time, he homered to left field to give OSU the 5-4 lead.Now trailing for the third time in this game, Xavier was down to its final three outs. After the leadoff hitter was hit by a pitch, Gellenbeck homered to right-center field to deliver the Musketeers the 6-5 victory and secure the three-game sweep.This was the clear standout game for McGowan. The third-year transfer from McClellan Community College finished the game 3-5 with three runs scored, five RBI and three home runs in the game. The Buckeyes will take the field again at Bill Davis for only the second time this season when they host Youngstown State on Tuesday, with first pitch scheduled for 5:05 p.m. read more
