Video: J.T. Barrett Participated In The Circle Drill With A Fan At Student Appreciation Day

first_imgJT Barrett Circle Drill.JT Barrett Circle DrillToday was Student Appreciation Day at Ohio State, and as you can imagine, the turnout at Buckeye spring practice was strong. Fans usually love seeing players participate in the “Circle Drill,” but don’t often end up getting involved themselves. Quarterbacks are always excluded from the action as well, so naturally today saw an OSU QB and a young fan face off in the circle.Lori Schmidt of Columbus’ 97.1 The Fan has the video of J.T. Barrett “defeating” a young woman in the Circle Drill. Surely this was a thrill for her to be face-to-face with one of the Buckeyes. Ohio State QB JT Barrett participates in circle drill at the team’s student appreciation day practice.— Lori Schmidt (@LoriSchmidt) April 2, 2016That will undoubtedly be the only time you see Barrett in the circle during his career in Columbus.last_img read more

Peter Gabriel Speaks Up For Mental Health Campaign

first_imgPeter Gabriel has joined The Times’ Time To Mind mental health campaign in the UK by speaking about his own battles with depression.“One in four of us will suffer from a mental health problem this year,” he said. “Many years ago, I became depressed after my divorce and I know how debilitating it can be, but I also learnt how much difference good treatment can make.“Ignoring the mental health of our kids is certain to create a destructive time bomb that will not only handicap them but also damage their ability to parent well. The emotional pressures and stresses that are now normal for our young people seem to be producing an extraordinary number of mental health problems, leaving teenagers more isolated and alienated than ever.”Gabriel joins celebrity support for the campaign from Paloma Faith and Neil Gaiman.Find out more about Time To Mind here.last_img read more

2017 Big Ten football preview Nebraska Cornhuskers

Nebraska senior wide reciever De’Mornay Pierson El (15) evades an Arkansas State defender. Credit: Courtesy of Hannah DePriest | The Daily NebraskanLocation: Lincoln, Nebraska2016 record: 9-4 (6-3 Big Ten)Head coach: Mike Riley2017 record so far: 1-1Record vs. OSU since 2007: 1-4What has happened thus far in 2017There has been no shortage of scoring for Nebraska and coach Mike Riley in the first two weeks of their season. In Week 1, Nebraska fought off a second-half surge by Arkansas State to win 43-36 in the final seconds. The script was flipped in Week 2 when Nebraska traveled to Oregon and trailed the Ducks for most of the game, only to see its second-half comeback fall short, 42-35. Impact playerIt’s difficult to find a more dangerous player on Nebraska’s roster than senior wide receiver De’Mornay Pierson-El. Pierson-El has recorded six catches for 87 yards and two touchdowns so far this year. The former freshman All-American at punt returner ranks third among active players in the country in career punt-return yardage. After an electrifying freshman campaign in 2014, Pierson-El sustained a knee injury that appeared to slow his production in his next two seasons. The versatile weapon is poised to return to form at full health and replace the production lost by graduated receiver Jordan Westerkamp, while continuing to be a mainstay in the return game. StrengthsThe Huskers’ backfield houses two very different playmakers in junior quarterback Tanner Lee and sophomore running back Tre Bryant. Lee has stepped in to replace longtime quarterback Tommy Armstrong Jr. and has shown flashes of why he was a highly touted transfer from Tulane. Lee has thrown for 490 yards and five touchdowns on the season. Bryant has 299 rushing yards and two touchdowns on 51 carries. WeaknessesNebraska’s defensive efforts have not exactly been encouraging this season for new defensive coordinator Bob Diaco. Giving up 78 points in two games might be somewhat of an outlier due to playing two nonconference opponents with up-tempo offenses, but Nebraska has still allowed six touchdowns and 780 yards this season through the air. The secondary has been scrambling since senior cornerback Chris Jones tore his meniscus in July. Jones was honorable mention All-Big Ten last season. read more

Giggs backs Bale to be the difference in Champions League final

first_imgGareth Bale can be the “difference” for Real Madrid in their Champions League final against Liverpool on Saturday, reckons Ryan GiggsThe Welsh winger has had a promising run of form lately with four goals in his last three games for Real with Zinedine Zidane having admitted that Bale’ sudden upturn in form has left him with a selection headache ahead of the final.The 28-year-old has often been left on the bench for Real’s Champions League knockout games this term and it remains uncertain on whether he has done enough to convince Zidane that he is worth a place in the starting eleven at Kiev.However, regardless of whether he starts or not, Giggs has backed his compatriot to make an “impact” on the outcome of Saturday’s final.“Every time Gareth plays he makes an impact,” said the Wales boss, according to Sky Sports.“It just shows the professional he is that he’s not sulking [when he’s a substitute] as he always seems to come on and score.divock origi, liverpoolReport: Origi cause Klopp injury concerns George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Divock Origi injury in today’s game against Newcastle is a cause for concern for Jurgen Klopp.Perhaps with one eye on Tuesday’s trip to Italy…“He’s one of the best players in the world and every time he comes on to that pitch he makes a difference.“Again that’s a credit to his professionalism, his hunger and desire to get in the team for that final.“He will be thinking if he starts in the Champions League, great.“But if he doesn’t, then he’s ready to score that winner anyway.”Bale has scored 19 goals and made 4 assists in his 35 appearances for Real this season.last_img read more

Pochettino believes relationship with players now stronger

first_imgTottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has playfully replied reports that he could take up Real Madrid job.Pochettino played down the reports of continued offers after Julen Lopetegui’s sack.“It’s like our girlfriend or our wife, no?” Pochettino said via FourFourTwo.“Because we are so handsome and we are walking down the street in London and she is so proud of you because another woman looks at you.“Your wife is so happy to be with you and feels in love with you. No one looks at you, your wife says ‘maybe he is better’, understand the metaphor?Victor Wanyama, Tottenham Hotspur, Premier LeaguePochettino admits Wanyama remains in his Spurs plans Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Kenyan international, Victor Wanyama, was the protagonist of a summer transfer saga, but in the end, he is set to stay at Tottenham Hotspur.“They are confident of course but they are not attached to me only. It is about the club. If I believe that Dele Alli is going to sign or a different player is going to sign a new contract because of me, it is a bad feeling or I am so wrong in my head.”“Of course it is always nice to hear the players say one of the reasons is the manager, one of the reasons is the chairman, one of the reasons is the new stadium, so exciting,” Pochettino said.“One of the reasons I wanted rather to listen – I want to play for Tottenham to make history, to touch the glory with this club and with this badge.“‘Now I am so happy with my manager and I am going to give my best’ but there are going to be days we won’t be happy because we are human.”Having currently secured the fifth position, five points off Premier League-leading Manchester City, Spurs are o their to Wolverhampton this Saturday.last_img read more

Epicurious Alexa Team Up to Bring VoiceActivated Cooking Tips to the Kitchen

first_imgAs connected devices and voice-assistant tech proliferate, publishers have never had so many different avenues through which to communicate with consumers as part of their day-to-day routines. With its latest brand extension, Epicurious wants to go where — outside of mobile apps and ink and paper — few have ventured before: the kitchen.Beginning today, with a simple download on the Alexa smartphone companion app, users of Amazon’s personal assistant can access cooking and preparation tips curated by the teams at Condé Nast’s Food Innovation Group and its Co/Lab digital partnerships group on nearly 50 commonly used food items.Eric Gillin, digital GM of the Food Innovation Group, says the launch is all a part of Epicurious’ mission to be the home cook’s ultimate resource. “We knew we had to do something different,” Gillin tells Folio:. “A lot of folks were doing recipe search and reciting recipe instructions. Knowing that most Alexa users were asking for things like sports scores and the weather, we really tried to figure out: What was our weather? What was that simple thing that we could do to help cooks do in the kitchen? We know that people are always interested in how long it takes to cook things. So we started there.”Users can activate the tips by saying, for example, “Alexa, ask Epicurious how long it takes to cook a ribeye.” Then, says Jeff Israel, lead engineer of the Co/Lab Partnerships Team, Alexa runs through a few follow up questions to gather more information. How thick is the steak? How well done would you like it? Alexa then dictates the ideal cooking time and temperature to meet the conditions, and provides helpful tips like, “Season with lots of salt and pepper,” or “Let it rest for five minutes and slice across the grain for maximum tenderness.”“Anyone that uses the skill can also start it first by saying, ‘Open Epicurious‘ and then asking about a specific food, ‘ribeye,’ or a group, like ‘steak,’” adds Israel. “The skill will respond with prompts and guide the user to their desired recipe—’What kind of steak would you like to cook?’ I expect this will be a frequently used path as users explore the skill. We will be gathering data on how different paths are used so that we can tweak and improve the skill based on interactions.”No new digital product is suited for market without ongoing data analysis, and Israel says research on not only which foods home cooks most often prepare and what they need from a digital assistant, but how exactly they’d interact with such a tool was a major part of the project from the beginning. As far out as a year ago, Gillin and the Epicurious team were in talks with Amazon about launching a recipe skill on the Alexa platform. An alpha version impressed Condé Nast’s chief development officer, Fred Santarpia, in March, and beta testing with users occurred throughout the summer.“Throughout the review cycles, the team we worked with at Amazon provided immense detail into the testing scenarios they subjected the skill to,” continues Israel. “We went into a fast-paced develop-test-review cycle. It culminated with final tweaks made while I was sitting in LAX last week on a layover.”Even the nearly 50 food items included in the tool were subject to research; Gillin’s team created a demand map of ingredients people purchase, examined Google trends, and considered which ingredients are most commonly available to consumers.“It’s no surprise to anyone who works in food, but people really love chicken!” Gillin adds.In terms of getting home cooks to actually begin using the new skill, Gillin says Epicurious will be promoting it in its newsletters and social channels, as well as around existing editorial content that covers Alexa-enabled devices to use in the kitchen. But a major benefit, he says, is expanding the brand to appeal to new readers and audiences, and that expanding to new devices — Epicurious was, after all, among the first cooking sites to launch an iPhone app — has always been in the brand’s DNA.“The interesting thing is that you really can’t add a ton of branding to the tool — it’s not like we’re going to have it say, ‘Epicurious says to cook that steak for ten minutes.’ That would be like those people who refer to themselves in the third-person. But, users will be saying our name every time they need help, and that’s pretty cool.”The new skill, as of now, is a branding initiative that doesn’t launch with any current sponsorships, and Gillin says that while the proper way to monetize products like voice-assistant skills still needs to be determined, he isn’t ruling anything out.“Even though millions of people have these devices, I think the monetization angle has to be figured out,” he says. “Jamming ads into the experience would be disruptive and less helpful to the user. And right now, a good user experience is critical. That said, we have some really fun ideas of how to extend the cook timer to our advertisers.”last_img read more

Whenever I read about liplock I feel like what the fk Vijay

first_imgDear Comrade song Canteen posterTwitterVijay Devarakonda has expressed his dislike towards constant questions on kissing scenes in his films. The actor, who is gearing up for the release of his upcoming film Dear Comrade, indicated that such sequences are not being forcefully added into the storyline.The actor, who was in Bengaluru to promote the movie, was visibly annoyed when a reporter asked about his lip-lock scene with Rashmika Mandanna in Dear Comrade. “I don’t like the word – lip-lock. You guys write about objectification….its kissing.. it’s an emotion like anger… when we cry it is an emotion, when we kiss it is an emotion and it’s not lip-locking… whenever I read lip-lock.. I’m like what the f**k…I really dislike it. [sic]”He added, “I think it is kissing and it is an emotion. It should be respected,” He claims that the kissing scenes are part of the film only If it is in the in the script and necessary for the moment.On her turn, Rashmika Mandanna said, “The director decides how the two characters should emote. It is all in the mindset. If a person feels the trailer only has kissing scenes, basically he doesn’t want to relate to any other emotion,”She wonders why people have issues over kissing scene when it is a natural thing between two people in love. Vijay Devarakonda intervened and stated, “It is not a kissing scene between Vijay and Rashmika. It is between Bobby and Lilly.”The much-awaited movie will hit the screens on 26 July in four languages –Telugu, Kannada, Tamil and Malayalam.last_img read more

Enforcement directorate likely to scrutinise Bitcoin exchanges in India

first_imgIs Bitcoin really a bubble?Creative CommonsPopular virtual currency Bitcoin is in news for the past two weeks, as value shot up as much as 89 percent in December propelled by the introduction of futures contracts traded at the world’s largest exchange.Following the surge in price, Indian regulators have become cautious and started motoring exchanges in India. In the latest development, it is learnt that the Enforcement Directorate (ED) is likely to scrutinise Bitcoin exchanges across the country to check for potential violations of foreign exchange rules, Mint reported.Last week, the Income Tax Department had conducted survey operations at major Bitcoin exchanges across the country. A team led by the Bengaluru investigation wing had visited the premises of nine exchanges where Bitcoins are traded. The exchanges were located in New Delhi, Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Kochi, and Gurugram.”It is I-T department which is heading the investigation. If it finds any violation of FEMA, we will launch an investigation. We are waiting for income-tax (department) to form its opinion on how to treat bitcoin,” an ED official told the business daily on condition of anonymity.Bitcoin issue is in patchy water, as the regulator has not legalised trading and transaction of virtual currency in the country and more importantly has not classified cryptocurrencies, hence, there has been a lot of confusion even in investigations.Many countries are treating virtual currencies as currencies and some are treating it as commodities. Proper classification is necessary as violations of rules for currency and commodity are different.Market analysts disagree on how virtual currencies should be classified, although market capitalization numbers for Bitcoin are being discussed as it is an asset (currency).”If bitcoin is a commodity, then goods and service tax should be payable. However, it is very early to say how bitcoins should be treated. It is after the analysis of the material collected during the survey (that) we will be able to say how bitcoin should be treated for taxation purpose,” an I-T department official said.The price of one Bitcoin surged to $18,979 on December 18 from, $10,001 on November 30. Since the start of 2017, Bitcoin price has soared as much as 1,766 percent.However, the surge is not unidirectional, there has been a lot of volatility in the Bitcoin price in between. Currently, it is been trading at $16,530 apiece after Wednesday’s closing.Earlier this month, the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) had warned that it has not given any licence to anyone to operate virtual currencies such as Bitcoin.In a notification, the central bank said, “users, holders, and traders of Virtual Currencies (VCs) including Bitcoins regarding the potential economic, financial, operational, legal, customer protection and security related risks associated in dealing with such VCs.”last_img read more

Facebook Expands Use Of Facial Recognition To ID Users In Photos

first_img Share Facebook Facebook will soon begin alerting users of photos that feature them, based on facial recognition technology.Facebook is expanding its use of facial recognition software to alert users when photos of them are posted on the platform — whether or not they are tagged in the photo.By default, Facebook users in the U.S. will be signed up for these face recognition alerts, unless they have previously opted out of a similar, more limited feature. But users can turn off face recognition, Facebook says.Additionally, the company says it will roll out new tools to alert users if someone else may be impersonating them with a misleading profile photo.Facebook has been using facial recognition technology since 2010 to detect faces in photos and look for recognizable patterns to identify individuals. Facebook had the ability to pair names with faces thanks to the “tag photos” feature, which people use to label themselves and their friends in pictures. The tags act as links to the Facebook profiles of those in the photo.For years, the social media giant has offered “tag suggestion.” When a Facebook user uploaded a photo, the user would have the option of tagging the photo or labeling the people in it. Using its data on previous tags, Facebook would prompt the user uploading the photo to add more tags, using facial recognition to suggest people it recognized. Those who were tagged were sent notifications.Now, Facebook is cutting out the human element of that process. If facial recognition software identifies you in a photo, you’ll be automatically notified — no need for the person who posted the photo to approve a tag.This is only true for photos you are able to see. If a stranger adds a photo of you and makes it visible to just their friend group, you wouldn’t be notified, for instance.There are two related features that Facebook is planning to roll out soon.“We want people to feel confident when they post pictures of themselves on Facebook so we’ll soon begin using face recognition technology to let people know when someone else uploads a photo of them as their profile picture,” Joaquin Quiñonero Candela, the director of applied machine learning at Facebook, writes in a blog post. “We’re doing this to prevent people from impersonating others on Facebook.”Facebook will also use facial recognition to describe photos to people with visual impairments, “even if people aren’t tagged,” Candela writes.Users will be able to turn off all facial recognition features in their settings, under an option called “Face Recognition,” with just two options: yes and no. If you want to opt out, choosing “no” will keep Facebook from identifying your face to you and others based on face recognition. But it doesn’t stop Facebook from looking for other people’s faces in your photos.Before that option becomes available, you can achieve the same thing by turning off tag suggestions in your Facebook settings.The new option is not available in Canada and the European Union, Facebook notes, without explanation.Regulators in both markets have previously raised concerns about the security and privacy implications of automatic facial recognition.Under Canada’s privacy and personal information laws, all users must meaningfully consent to use of their personal information, and security must be safeguarded.In the EU, Facebook’s “tag suggestion” feature was previously found to violate privacy laws because it was opt-out instead of opt-in, raising questions about consent.More recently, Facebook’s Moments photo app was rolled out separately in the EU and Canada to leave out facial recognition technology.You might be wondering: “Should I be afraid of face recognition technology?”Facebook certainly assumes you’re asking that question. That was the title of a corporate blog post Tuesday from deputy chief privacy officer Rob Sherman, who noted that face recognition can be used both for innocuous reasons like sorting photos, as well as in “concerning ways.” It also acknowledged the “potential for racial bias.”Sherman wrote that Facebook has “no plans” to roll out features that “tell strangers who you are,” and emphasized users’ ability to opt out of the feature.If you are, in fact, wondering if you ought to be afraid, you might want to check out a more skeptical view of Facebook’s privacy practices from privacy watchdog group EPIC.The Government Accountability Office also examined the question of facial recognition technology in 2015 and found that “no federal privacy law expressly regulates commercial uses of facial recognition technology.”Copyright 2017 NPR.
