“2019 Resolution: Time to get in touch, for real,” said the final tweet, screenshots of which were shared widely on social media.Those navigating to his Twitter account on Wednesday could only see a message reading “Sorry, that page doesn’t exist!”.On Instagram, the message read “The link you followed may be broken, or the page may have been removed.” A similar message appeared on Facebook.It was not immediately clear whether the shutdowns were deliberate.Some fans speculated that Salah deleted his accounts due to a dispute he has had with the Egyptian Football Association over his image rights.Others saw it as a possible new year’s resolution.Salah has taken the Premier League by storm since signing for Liverpool in the summer of 2017, scoring 50 goals for the English club in just 72 appearances.Earlier this month, Salah was named the African Player of the Year for the second consecutive year.0Shares0000(Visited 3 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000A fan holds a poster of Egypt forward Mohamed Salah ahead of a match against Russia at the World Cup on June 19, 2018 © AFP/File / Olga MALTSEVACAIRO, Egypt, Jan 23 – Fans were left baffled on Wednesday after Liverpool’s star Egyptian striker Mohamed Salah appeared to have deleted all of his social media accounts where his followers number in the millions.The Facebook, Instagram and Twitter accounts of Salah, who is idolised in Egypt and Liverpool, went offline without warning a day after he posted a cryptic tweet.

Others can no longer afford their higher monthly payments due to a reset in their adjustable rate mortgages and have been foreclosed. Jackie Castleberry won’t be playing Santa Claus this year. She usually buys her grandchildren, nieces and nephews lots of gifts around the holidays – bicycles, educational games, clothes – but this year she is just struggling to keep her North Las Vegas, Nev., house. The interest rate on her four-bedroom home loan shot up in October and she is $6,000 behind on her payments. She now owes $168,000 on her home, which once was worth $220,000 but is now worth about $150,000. The crisis is taking a toll on consumer spending, particularly in areas that have been hit hardest such as Florida, California and Nevada. And it is one of the biggest factors behind what is expected to be the weakest holiday season in five years. Nevada, California and Florida have posted the highest foreclosure rates in the country for the past several months, according to Irvine-based RealtyTrac Inc. In October, Nevada reported one foreclosure filing for every 154 households; California’s rate was one for every 258 households; and Florida had one for every 273 households – up nearly 165 percent from October 2006’s total. Mark Zandi, senior economist with Moody’s Economy.com, said the housing downturn is “weighing increasingly heavily on retailers and will play a significant role during the holidays.” In the second half of 2006 and the first quarter of 2007, mortgage equity withdrawals were at a peak of $850 billion on an annualized basis, Zandi said. But in the third quarter of 2007, that number had fallen to $550 billion. And that’s also hurt people employed in the real estate and mortgage businesses. Last year, Leo Rojas could spend liberally on Christmas gifts for his 7-year-old son and 14-year-old daughter and the employees at his Miami-based mortgage company, which was processing 50 home loans a month. He bought a video game system and a slick toy all-terrain vehicle for his kids and Movado watches, expensive pens and Walt Disney World trips for his workers. But this year, his company is processing five loans a month. He has closed offices, laid off employees and is selling cell phones to make ends meet. He estimates he’ll spend about a quarter of what he spent last year on gifts, with his children getting a phone, clothing and perfume or cologne. “We’re finding ourselves going back to the basics,” Rojas said. “We made a decision that we’re only going to give to our immediate family, as opposed to last year when we gave to all our family and our friends and our friends’ kids.” Many retailers have curtailed inventory levels and others started promotions earlier than before. Discount stores could benefit from a trade-down effect among consumers seeking better pricing over department stores, while home-related retailers such as furniture stores offer deals to stimulate sales. Luxury stores may be OK, considering that more affluent people tend to weather economic downturns more easily, analysts noted. “The housing market has caused a dent in our appliance sales,” said Bobby Johnson, senior vice president of Hollywood, Fla.-based BrandsMart USA. “But people seem to be buying flat-panel TVs, as many as they were before, if not more, because of the price erosion.” Mark Vitner, Wachovia Economics Group senior economist, said this season is “a little odd” because there’s no “must-have” item bringing people to department stores. While toys related to children’s TV’s Hannah Montana are hot and Nintendo Wii consoles are hard to find, little else has captured consumer attention, he said.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

$35 million for flood control systems, graffiti removal, wetlands restoration and other river enhancements. $40 million for water re-use to increase water flow and habitat renewal. Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, council President Eric Garcetti, and Councilman Ed Reyes joined state parks Director Ruth Coleman to endorse the plan. The $80 million is vital because it serves as seed money for further grants, said Coleman. “It’ll be the big push to create more gems along the emerald necklace” known as the Los Angeles River, she said. “I think it can give legs to the city planning efforts,” added Joe Linton of Friends of the Los Angeles River. “If we can get money behind this project, it won’t be another (river) plan that sits on a shelf.” firstname.lastname@example.org (818) 713-3730 IF YOU GO: Friends of the Los Angeles River will host the nation’s largest river cleanup from 9 a.m. to noon May 6 between the Tujunga Wash and Long Beach.

You’re all set! A plan to turn the barren Los Angeles River into a bucolic waterway got a potential boost Thursday with a request for millions of dollars in federal funds. Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., announced pending legislation to authorize $80 million to restore the Los Angeles River. If authorized, the federal funding would provide valuable seed money for a developing plan to clean up and return portions of the the concrete flood channel to a natural state, at a potential cost of $1 billion. “I’m going to introduce legislation to revitalize the L.A. River,” the senator said during a news conference with city officials at Rio de Los Angeles State Park, a $43.5 million city-state park slated to open next year along the waterway at Taylor Yard in Cypress Park.

The $3 million plan aims to add paths, parks, restaurants and housing along 32 miles of Los Angeles riverfront. If approved, Boxer’s bill would pay: $4 million to the Army Corps of Engineers to develop a plan to restore water flow and re-create wetlands and river habitat to provide recreational and economic opportunities along its banks.

A well-known Donegal county councillor and publican had his nose busted after refusing to allow a man into his bar.Michael McDonagh – assaulted publican and county councillor Martin Harley. Pic copyright of North West Newspix.Gardai found Martin Harley outside his premises, Cheers Bar, on Main Street, Ballybofey on March 13th last. He was bleeding from the nose and his eyes were watery after being assaulted by Michael McDonagh.When approached by Gardai, McDonagh, who has 34 previous convictions, initially claimed that Mr Harley would not allow his family into his bar.Gardai arrested McDonagh, 24, and he appeared at Letterkenny District Court charged with assault and using threatening and abusive language in public.Solicitor for McDonagh, Mr Frank Dorrian, said his client had no recollection of saying that his family had been refused entry to the bar.He said McDonagh, of the Big Isle Halting Site, Letterkenny, has mental health issues and was on a range of medication and had unfortunately mixed them with alcohol on the day.He had been at a family function and things got out of control.The court heard he had a range of previous convictions including making threats to kill, theft, obstructing Gardai, intoxication and public order offences.Judge Paul Kelly asked Gardai how the injured party was now doing and he was told he was doing well and that there were no long-term effects form the assault.Mr Dorrian told the court that McDonagh, a father-of-two, had gathered €500 which he wished to offer Mr Harley as some form of compensation for the incident.Judge Kelly adjourned the case until September 22nd for a probation report on McDonagh but warned him a lot will depend on what happens in between now and then.COUNCILLOR LEFT WITH BLOODY NOSE AFTER BEING ATTACKED OUTSIDE HIS BAR was last modified: July 29th, 2014 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:BallybofeyCheers Barcounty councillordonegalMartin HarleyMICHAEL MCDONAGH
(Visited 27 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0 If we kept track of all the nano-scopic processes that keep us alive, we would be giga-astonished.Origami prize: Two scientists won the Lasker Prize, Nature reports, for discovering how cellular machines in the endoplasmic reticulum help assemble and fold proteins. This is vital, because misfolded proteins can build up in the cells and tissues of the body, leading to major health problems. One of the researchers, Kazutoshi Mori, described her feelings at the wonder of discovery:We wanted to find the molecular machinery that allows one component of the cell to talk to another. There was virtually nothing known about what was taking place…. The deeper we dove, however, the more complex it became and the more beautiful it became….We discovered machinery by which the cell has the capacity to fold the protein properly and pathway by which this happened. We mapped the components of the pathway and everything turned out to be more exciting than we could have hoped for.Self-repairing heart: There are stem cells in the coronary arteries on hand to repair damaged heart tissues, Science Daily reveals. Research at Vanderbilt shows that you are not stuck with the same heart you had as a child; stem cells continually regenerate heart tissue. Heart failure is not so much an issue of growing old, but of failure in the built-in repair mechanisms that keep the heart ticking.Resonant neurons: How can nerves communicate over long distances in the body and brain? The answer may be resonant frequences, an article on Science Daily suggests. Scientists at the University of Freiberg identified resonances that may help neurons share information:Not all nerve cells excite other cells; some inhibit the activity of others. This means that the activity in a network can oscillate around a certain level of activity as a result of the interplay of excitation and inhibition. These networks typically have preferred frequencies at which oscillations are particularly strong, just as a taut string on a violin has a preferred frequency. If the activity tunes into this frequency, pulses propagate much farther. As the scientists point out, the combination of oscillatory signals together with resonance induced amplification may be the only possible form of long distance communication in certain cases. They further suggest that a network’s ability to change its preferred frequency may play a role in the way how information is at times processed differently in the brain.Eye haze filter: Yellow pigments in the macula of the eye may act as a haze filter, Medical Xpress reported about findings at the University of Georgia. “We’ve found that the yellow filters out the effects of blue haze,” Billy Hammond said. “The pigment affects how far people can see outdoors and how they can adapt to their environment.”Skin calculator: We know that brain neurons interact heavily to perceive and plan many things, but did you know that neurons in the skin have some of that calculating ability? Medical Xpress says that tactile neurons perform “advanced calculations” before the brain gets the message of touch:“Perhaps the most surprising result of our study is that these peripheral neurons, which are engaged when a fingertip examines an object, perform the same type of calculations done by neurons in the cerebral cortex. Somewhat simplified, it means that our touch experiences are already processed by neurons in the skin before they reach the brain for further processing” says Andrew Pruszynski.Trash truck antennas: Scientists at Salk Institute found that two receptors on macrophages, the trash-collecting cells of the immune system, are specialized for specific roles. Previously, the two types of receptors were thought to be interchangeable, but this new finding shows that the two work cooperatively on the vital task of keeping our tissues and vessels free of dead-cell trash that accumulates normally as we live and move.Cilia motor: Thank God for dynein-2, a molecular motor that delivered cargo to the cilia on your cells during development. Malfunctioned cilia, Medical Xpress says, are responsible for many health problems called ciliopathies, resulting in things like “blindness, deafness, chronic respiratory infections, kidney disease, heart disease, infertility, obesity and diabetes.” Researchers at Bristol University found, for the first time, how human cytoplasmic dynein-2 works, by identifying “new components of the motor” (it’s called a “motor” nine times in the brief article).Don’t underestimate your mind’s eye is the headline of an article on Medical Xpress about the “image processing” the eye performs on a scene before your brain sees it. You can see much more than what you think, “thanks to your finely tuned mind’s eye, which processes images without your even knowing.” Results of experiments at the University of Arizona bear on philosophical questions about perception, shedding light on “why we sometimes make decisions—stepping into a street, choosing not to merge into a traffic lane—without really knowing why.” Even objects we are not consciously perceiving can influence our actions, they found: “we have now shown that the meaning of an object can be accessed before conscious perception,” showing there is more interplay before memory and perception than previously thought.Most of these articles had little use for evolutionary concepts. The last one, though, speculated that the ability to respond subliminally makes “evolutionary sense.”On “evolutionary sense,” see sophoxymoroniac in the Darwin Dictionary.Setting aside the Darwinspeak (a kind of Newspeak), these articles should cause us to stand in awe of the glory of the Creator of these marvels. Is that your response?
Related Posts We are winding down the long holiday weekend here in the United States but on the other side of the world, the news cycle is in full gear.And so the story about a new cloud service in India caught our attention as it demonstrates how the cloud is reaching millions of people who have no access to a computer nor a credit card. It also is illustrative of how the cloud will be more for a global community of mobile users who access a service that is more like AOL than the open Web.Sify Technologies is a a large Indian Internet service provider. It’s so large that it is planning to lay undersea cable between Delhi and Singapore for better connected networks between India and the economically powerful city state.The company is a powerhouse on par with our very largest telecommunications companis in the United States. But its customers do not live in suburban tract houses with desktops and laptops for Mom, stepdad and the kids. The Sifi customer has a mobile phone.They go to cyber cafes to connect to the Internet. They live in rural communities.And so that is why Sifi is launching “Sify mylife,” a suite of cloud-based applications for the millions of people in India who do not own computers nor have Internet access. It’s an interesting play as the service leverages the cloud but in many ways is more akin to the American Online we knew in the mid-1990s. It seems fitting that millions of people would be drawn to a service that give them access to the Internet. Just like AOL did, millions of people can get access to the Sify service. But now the availability is of a different flavor with SaaS type services such as spreadsheet applications and word processing.Sify will offer the service through its network of 1,200 cyber cafes. The cafes are operated as a franchise. They use the company’s broadband connections for Internet access. Sify will also offer a hardware device to other cyber cafes in India that will be equipped with the software. That gives the service additional significance. Again, as we have seen before, hardware is becoming so affordable that to create a branded device makes sense as a way to create a controlled experience in the cloud. We’re in the first generation of cloud-based devices that will serve as ways to conduct commerce all within the network of one provider, not the open Web.According to Computerworld, the cloud service will offer applications that allows people to purchase travel tickets, entertainment and educational services. People may use Sify to pay bills online without using credit cards.. How? Customers will pay cash to the people running the cyber cafe, making it a viable service for the millions of people in India who do not have credit cards or do not feel comfortable with paying online a credit The service is targeted at the large number of people who do not have credit cards or aren’t comfortable making credit card payments online.Computerworld:“About 52 million urban Indians were active internet users in September last year, according to a report released jointly by the internet and Mobile Association of India (IAMAI), and research firm IMRB International. Active users are defined as those who used the Internet at least once a month. About 37 percent of these users accessed the Internet through cyber cafés, according to the report. The percentage of people who use cyber cafés is expected to be higher in rural areas.” Sify will also team with software developers to launch storage services and applications on the platform.The Sify mylife service is a contrast to how the cloud is being marketed in the United States. Consumer services like Sify became obsolete with the advent of the open Web. But in India, the Internet is not as widely accessed as it is here in the United States. But people still do want to use online services. Sify may very well fill that gap. alex williams A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Tags:#cloud#cloud computing#news#saas

South Africa is a full member of the International Cricket Council with Test and one-day international status. Cricket in South Africa was established by the British, and the first tour by a side from England took place in 1888-89. South Africa played its first Test match (against a touring England side at Port Elizabeth), becoming the third Test nation.However, in 1970, the ICC voted to suspend the team from international cricket indefinitely because of its government’s policy of apartheid, an overtly racist policy, which led them to play only against the white nations (England, Australia, New Zealand), and field only white players. This decision excluded players such as stalwart Graeme Pollock from partaking in international Test Cricket. Such a move caused the exodus of bright future prospects like Allan Lamb and Robin Smith, who both played for England, and Kepler Wessels, who initially played for Australia, before returning to South Africa. The team was reinstated in 1991 as a Test nation after the deconstruction of apartheid, and the team played its first official match since 1970 (and its first-ever ODI) against India in 1991. Since the reinstatement, the Proteas have had mixed success. Even when the team has been considered to be a favourite to win big tournaments, good fortune deserts it.The match-fixing scandal that shook the cricketing fraternity got momentum from Hansie Cronje’s claims. With his mysterious death in a plane crash, a chapter in South African cricket closed.The South African cricket has produced many greats. Jacques Kallis possibly is the best ever to represent them, while in Graeme Smith, they had a leader who was very instrumental in putting them on top, particularly in Test cricket. To add to that, the likes of Allan Donald, Daryll Cullinan, Jonty Rhodes, Lance Klusener, Shaun Pollock, Makhaya Ntini, Dale Steyn, AB de Villiers, Hashim Amla etc also contributed massively to their success.The team has reached the semi-finals of the Cricket World Cup three times but has failed to progress into the finals, with Herschelle Gibbs famously dropping Australian captain Steve Waugh in 1999 in a round-robin game. They performed well in the 2011 ICC Cricket World Cup, until New Zealand beat them in the quarterfinals, unfortunately ending their World Cup campaign.The Proteas were once again amongst the favourites in the 2015 World Cup. They had a very good run but it came to an end against New Zealand in the semis. A poor run in the 2017 Champions Trophy followed where they failed to qualify for the knockout stages. In 2018, they were dealt a huge blow as arguably their best batsman, AB de Villiers bowed out of international cricket. SA South Africa have previously arrived at Cricket World Cup tournaments among the favourites to lift the trophy and failed dismally, but this time around can fly under the radar with a youthful team largely shorn of the baggage of the past.Since they were re-admitted to international sport in 1992, the Proteas have reached the semi-finals in four of their seven World Cup appearances, but never made the final.Only seven of South Africa’s 15-man squad, however, have been to a World Cup before, and while they have some concerns going into the tournament in England and Wales, there is a freshness about their side that coach Ottis Gibson hopes will leave any negativity buried deep in the past.”It is a fresh start for us,” Gibson said. “It is my first time with the team and we have been using the same language for the last 18 months since I have been here. NZ Faf du Plessis Captain Faf du Plessis Faf du Plessis 782 runs in boundries AFG Batsman Andile Phehlukwayo Andile Phehlukwayo 9 Matches Played Bowler Team Profile South Africa 1934 Total runs scored Bowler Lungi Ngidi Lungi Ngidi IND Tabraiz Shamsi Tabraiz Shamsi Bowler “It is one of positivity all the time. What is gone in the past is gone. We are not taking the past with us to the World Cup, it is a new adventure for us.”When all their players are fit, South Africa look a balanced side, albeit with a top order batting line-up that is prone to collapse.Their major concern though lies in a bowling attack that has tremendous pace, skill and guile, but three frontline seamers who have all had injury concerns in the build-up to the tournament.Kagiso Rabada tweaked his troublesome back during the Indian Premier League, while Dale Steyn suffered a recurrence of his on-going shoulder problems.advertisementLungi Ngidi, who has a knack of taking early wickets, did not go to the IPL at all with a side-strain.Whether the trio can last from South Africa’s opener against England at The Oval on May 30 and a potential final on July 14 may dictate the team’s trophy chances.Other key players are wicketkeeper Quinton de Kock, who blasts away at the top of the order, and leg-spinner Imran Tahir, who is 40 years old but arguably in the form of his life.Getting out-of-form opener Hashim Amla to fire would be a big bonus for the team, though they do have Aiden Markram, who excelled in a recent short spell with Hampshire, as a potential replacement.”This is the beauty of the 15 players we have selected, it gives us so many options, we can interchange people and put them in different positions,” Gibson added.”That is fantastic going into a World Cup where weather conditions will dictate a lot of how the tournament is played.”
