Spalletti bemoans penalty decision

first_imgInter Milan coach Luciano Spalletti has blamed a “clear as day” penalty decision after they lost 1-0 at home to Parma.There was also controversy in the match, as Dimarco appeared to make contact with the ball his elbow, but VAR officials refused to award Inter Milan a penalty. A decision that has drawn the ire of Spalletti.“Now I see the video, that really did look to be handball. I don’t know how VAR works, but he really did deflect the ball away from the goal with his arm. It was outstretched, that ball could’ve gone anywhere. That was clear as day.” Spalletti told Sky Sports Italia.“It’s disappointing that Parma came out to obstruct and time-waste, we even saw Luigi Sepe throw an extra ball on to the pitch to stop us taking a quick corner.”Spalletti also questioned his side’s attitude during the game.Romelu Lukaku, Serie A, Inter MilanCapello calls Lukaku “a modern striker” Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 The former Italian manager believes Romelu Lukaku is perfectly suited for Antonio Conte’s Internazionale Milan in the Serie A.“I don’t understand this sluggish approach in some situations compared to others. Nothing is owed to us, no matter what our names are.“That attitude can at times come from the desire to do something more, it doesn’t work, so we get disorganised and the opposition takes advantage.“We messed up too many crosses, too many passes for the quality at our disposal. We introduced Matteo Politano for the second half to add fresh legs, but he looked weighed down by the pressure and could barely run. It’s not physical form or fitness training, it’s the desperate attempt to do more and it leads to fractures within the team’s organisation.“Now we must do well to analyse these games in the right way and realise we have the capability to do far more than this. If the players perform below their capabilities, that is the responsibility of the Coach.”last_img read more

Senate Passes Bill For Fair Liquor License

first_imgThis year, following the release of the legislative audit, the board began to crack down on recreational license renewals, with members saying they have no choice under existing state law. Senator Peter Micciche (R-Soldotna) sponsored the bill: “Eleven business licenses across the state, including the state fair, were at risk of no longer operating. In largely it’s because of the bureaucracy of the ABC Board (Alcohol Beverage Control Board) just deciding they were going to read the statue in a different way.”  Micciche: “Sometimes government moves away from operating with common sense, and that’s when we have to step in.” Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享The Alaska Senate on Monday passed legislation that will allow the fairs in Alaska to continue selling alcohol. The bill passed in the Senate by 19-0, creates several new liquor license types, including a fair license. The bill now moves onto the Alaska House of Representatives. Photo courtesy of Alaska State Fair Micciche says the bill is in response to a more stringent reading of state law by the Alcoholic Beverage Control Board. The measure will also allow skiing and snowboarding under the definition of recreational sites, which Micciche said had been traditionally permissible previously.last_img read more

Id Be Sympathetic 7 Moments from Tuesdays HASC Hearing

first_imgAir Force Photo by Wayne Clark Army and Air Force leaders testified before the House Armed Services Committee Tuesday. Here are some of the highlights, based on a CQ transcript:Chairman Adam Smith (D-Wash.) asked whether DOD can adequately operate under a fiscal year 2020 appropriation of $733 billion, the amount House leaders have proposed. “I think the Army’s component of the defense of the United States, what we’re asking for, the answer is yes,” Army Secretary Mark Esper said. The president has asked for $750 billion.Lawmakers praised the Pentagon for completing its first-ever audit, even though the results were mixed. “If I can say you guys can pass an audit, it’s a lot easier to advocate and explain to the American people why the budgets need to keep going up,” Rep. Elissa Slotkin (D-Mich.) said.The leaders said they need a supplemental spending bill to fund storm recovery at three installations. Air Force Secretary Heather Wilson said she had to delay 61 facilities projects in 18 states to begin storm recovery. “I won’t press you,” Rep. John Garamendi (D-Calif.) said, “but in fact, the money is already in the Department of Defense. The decision was made to transfer for the construction of 150 miles of border fence rather than Tyndall, Offutt or Lejeune.”Asked about the Army’s missed recruitment targets, Army Chief of Staff Gen. Mark Milley said, “We were able to recruit 70,000 soldiers into the Army last year. That’s a 10-year high. And yes, we missed the mark by 6,500, but we did that because I set the bar too high on an unachievable goal. Secretary Mattis and others cautioned us against that, by the way.”Esper said the Army has completed inspections of all its housing. “You know, this has been an eye-opener for everybody,” he said. “The leadership’s getting back involved in the housing business, and that’s our number one commitment.”In opening remarks, Smith thanked Wilson, who is leaving her position in May, for her service. “I don’t think you actually left just because of the Space Force, but I’d be sympathetic if you did,” he said. Wilson has made critical remarks about forming the new branch, but she and Air Force Chief of Staff David Goldfein assured the committee they support the plan.Mike Turner (R-Ohio) told Wilson, “We are all saddened that you are departing, but I look forward to when you return as secretary of defense.” ADC AUTHORlast_img read more

CES 2019 Hisense goes higherend with better Roku TVs and 4K laser

first_img TVs Hisense’s latest “laser TV” is a massivve screen paired with a short-throw projector and wireless sub. Hisense It’s not easy bringing a new brand name into the US TV market. Televisions are expensive and last a long time, and people tend to want a name they can trust.Hisense, one of the TV brands in domestic China, is a less-familiar name to Americans than even TCL, a fellow Chinese brand that has become increasingly successful in the US. For its 2019 lineup, Hisense is taking a page from TCL by improving the picture quality of some of the most popular kinds of TVs: those that use Roku’s operating system. It also introduced a new all-in-one laser “TV” (er, projector) and a few other bits of intriguing TV tech. Here’s the rundown.hisense-r8-frontHisense R8 Roku TV with Dolby Vision and local dimming.R8 series Roku TV: On paper this set looks like a serious rival to TCL’s 6 series, CNET’s favorite TV for the money, which combines Roku’s superb smart TV system with the picture quality chops of full-array local dimming. The R8 has a healthy 64 zones of dimming on the 65-inch size, wide color gamut, 700 nits of brightness and Dolby Vision, all for less than the TCL 6 series. Shipping “later in 2019” the 55-inch size costs $600 and the 65 an aggressive $750. H8F series Android TV: This set offers all of the picture quality features of the R8 but with Google Android TV smart system instead of Roku’s. Google Assistant voice control is built-in and the set also works with Amazon Alexa. It will launch in May 2019 starting at $400 for the 50-inch and up to $750 for the 65-inch.H9F and U9F series Android TVs: These step-up models offer improved image quality specs, thanks to quantum dot technology. The H9F (May, $700 for 55-inch and $1,000 for the 65-inch) has 150 dimming zones and gets up to 1,000 nits in brightness, while the U9F (June, available only in a 75-inch size for $3,500) has a whopping 1,000+ zones and 2,200 nits of peak brightness. hisense-u9-frontThe 75-inch Hisense U9 claims more than 1,000 dimming zones. Hisense 100- and 120-inch 4K laser short-throw projector systems: Hisense bests on previous gigantic “TVs” — actually projection systems that consist of the screen, a projector that can sit very close to the wall, and a sound system — by adding a new dual-color laser light engine for improved color. The screens are designed to work well in bright lighting and the sound system is built into the projector, augmented by a wireless subwoofer. Alexa support is built in, available via the voice remote. Pricing was not announced, but for reference the 2018 100-inch setup was $10,000.Beyond those shipping products Hisense also talked up some of its more future-looking tech.hisense-sonic-one-backThe backside of the Hisense One, said to be the thinnest 65-inch TV in the industry. Hisense ULED XD: Hisense likes to call its high-end sets “ULED” (don’t ask me what it stands for) so this variation is called “Extreme Detail.” It’s an all-new LCD panel design that “layers a 1080p module displaying a grayscale image between a full array LED backlight and a 4K module displaying a full color image.” Hisense claims improved dynamic range, brightness (2,900 nits), and “unsurpassed” black levels. I’m intrigued to check it out in person.4K RGB laser TV: An improvement on its laser projection tech that uses three separate lasers, one each for red, green and blue. The result, according to Hisense, is up to 98 percent of the Rec 2020 wide color gamut.Hisense One Design: Billed as the “thinnest-self contained 65-inch television in the industry,” the set ranges from less than 1/4-inch at its thinnest to 1 inch at its thickest point. And the screen itself acts like a speaker, similar to some OLED TVs.

Googles new US data centers will run on 16 million solar panels

first_img Share your voice Tags 5 Comments Google Google plans to purchase 100 percent renewable energy for its data centers and offices in the US and around the world.  Google Google will amp up its expansion in the southeastern US with millions of solar panels. Google wants the electricity consumed by its new data centers in Yum Yum, Tennessee, and Hollywood, Alabama, to be “matched with 100 percent renewable energy from day one.” To meet this goal, the search giant said Wednesday it’s struck a multi-year deal with the Tennessee Valley Authority to purchase output from several new solar farms, which will total 413 megawatts of power from 1.6 million solar panels. The two largest solar farms will produce roughly 150 megawatts each, according to a Google blog post. They’ll be among the largest renewable energy projects in the Tennessee Valley region, Google said, and the biggest solar farms ever built for the search giant.Google said in 2016 that the company planned to source carbon-free electricity on a 24/7 basis for each data center. The search giant tried to reach 100 percent renewable energy purchasing goal in 2017. So far, Google has sourced carbon-free energy for its data centers in Finland, Netherlands, Taiwan, North Carolina and Iowa, according to Google’s October 2018 report. Tech Enabled: CNET chronicles tech’s role in providing new kinds of accessibility.CNET Magazine: Check out a sample of the stories in CNET’s newsstand edition.

Kabir Singh director If you cant slap touch kiss your woman wherever

first_imgShahid Kapoor, Kiara Advani, Kabir Singh director Sandeep Reddy VangaInstagramKabir Singh director Sandeep Reddy Vanga has strongly reacted to critics who slammed his film for being extremely misogynistic and a full show of toxic masculinity on screen. Despite criticism, Kabir Singh has earned Rs 218.60 crore in just two weeks and still running successfully in theatres.Calling critics as parasites, Sandeep told Anupama Chopra in his post release interview, “Probably they never experienced (love) in the right way. They were only on the feminist side, they didn’t speak about anything else. They (the critics) hate me.”There’s a particular scene where Shahid Kapoor as Kabir Singh slaps Preeti, played by Kiara Advani, on the streets after her family disapproves their relationship and Preeti pleads Kabir to not leave her.Talking about the physical assault, Sandeep said, “She slapped him without a reason, at least Kabir had a reason to slap her. If you can’t slap, if you can’t touch your woman wherever you want, if you can’t kiss, I don’t see emotion there.”Sandeep also slammed critics’ for their ‘double standards’ who lauded Rajkumar Hirani’s Sanju. “Rajeev Masand gave 3.5 (stars) to Sanju. ‘Sanju where is my mangalsutra?’ What happens after that, you can talk volumes about it. Everybody loved it. When he says he slept with 300-odd women, we were all cheering and whistling in the theatre.”The director’s ‘ views on love have received mixed reactions on social media. While some have praised him for being honest and raw, actor Gulshan Devaiah and a few others have slammed him for his regressive views.There was a reason why the Nazis used film as propaganda!!
