This secured her a place in this weekend’s national tournament with competition against the top 36 singles players in the nation.“I just want to keep working on my individual goals and have fun. Hopefully the results will come,” Sanchez said.Sanchez’s win in the opening round propelled her into Friday’s round of 16.

Powered by Firework Indian opener KL Rahul, after being dismissed for 44 and 38 in each innings of the 1st Test against West Indies, claimed that he was disappointed with his game, but there are a lot of things he is doing right. In the press conference after Day three’s play, Rahul stated that “technique and everything is overrated” and that he needed to show some patience.Advertisement “Technique and everything are overrated – when you get runs everything looks good. So, it was important for me to spend time in the middle. (I am) very disappointed but there are a lot of things I’m doing right. Just need to keep my head down and show some patience,” Rahul said in the media conference.Advertisement The Karnataka batsman looked solid in the first innings until he was dismissed by Roston Chase registering 44 runs to his name, and on Saturday, Rahul failed to execute a paddle sweep against the same bowler, this time being dismissed for 38. His half-century in the single Test against Afghanistan and 149 against England last year, are the only success he has enjoyed in the longest format since the start of 2018.The right-hander then added, “I just have to prolong the good things I’m doing till I get to 35-45. I’m batting well, I looked comfortable in both the innings and my head-space is very good. Happy about a lot of things. If I can keep my patience and keep batting the way I do in the first 60-80 balls, if I continue to do that for 200-250 balls then it’ll obviously benefit me and the team.”Advertisement   Advertisementlast_img read more

Blues ‘battle United’ for player

first_imgChelsea are locked in a ‘titanic battle’ to sign highly-rated teenage midfielder Paul Pogba from Manchester United, according to the Daily Mirror.Pogba, 18, has been stalling over signing a new contract at Old Trafford and Chelsea are said to be keen to capture him but have picked up mixed messages from his camp about whether he wants to move.AVB remains in the news.The Sun say Daniel Sturridge is considering his future at Chelsea.A friend of the player is quoted as saying: “Daniel will be distraught if Chelsea finish outside the top four — he’s desperate to prove himself at the highest level and that means he wants Champions League football, not Europa League.”Sturridge, 22, was recently reported to want an improved contract at Stamford Bridge and is apparently unhappy at being played on the wing rather than as a central striker.The Daily Mail say Chelsea’s apparent emergency plan to reappoint Guus Hiddink suffered a setback after it emerged he is a serious candidate to take over at ambitious Russian club Anzhi Makhachkala.The Independent, Sun and Daily Telegraph report yesterday’s comments by Andre Villas-Boas’ former president at Porto, Jorge Nuno Pinto da Costa.He suggested that the under-pressure Chelsea manager could take over at Inter Milan and that members of the Blues squad are texting ex-boss Jose Mourinho – who has been linked with a return to west London.Mark Hughes is having a difficult start as QPR boss.Mourinho has been accused of undermining AVB’s position, The Sun declare.The Sun claimed on Tuesday that Jose Bosingwa was one of only three Chelsea players who are fully behind their manager.And The Mirror today quote the defender as saying: “The dressing room has confidence in the coach.

first_imgJames DeGale is determined to take his chance to secure a world title fight when he faces unbeaten American Brandon Gonzales at Wembley on Saturday.The bout is a final eliminator for the IBF super-middleweight title held by Carl Froch and is the chief support to the rematch between the Nottingham man and George Groves.It means a victory for DeGale, 28, would set up a clash with Froch or another showdown with his arch-rival and fellow West Londoner Groves, who won a close points decision when they met three years ago.DeGale declared: “It’s here, I’m ready, the pressure’s on and I can’t wait. It’s the perfect fight for me.“This is what I’ve been waiting for; Wembley stadium, 80,000 people.

It’s a big event. We’ve got an excellent gameplan and I’m extremely confident.”See also:Groves: My left hook will finish FrochFollow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

British Cave Art Wins Admiration

first_imgThe British are overtaking the French in the ancient cave art competition; National Geographic News reports that “English caves may hold the most elaborate Ice Age cave-art ceiling ever discovered.”  Thought to be 12,000 to 13,000 years old based on radiocarbon results and “stylistic comparison.”  There was some surprise that the art could have survived so long: “Some experts have argued that cave paintings are quickly degraded in the damp British climate.”Never any indication that cave people were dumb.  Always an indication that humans had a human nature.  The dates and phylogenies are modern myths woven around scattered, silent artifacts.  When the observations continue to defy the expectations, the mythmakers ought to seriously reconsider their assumptions; either that, or get out of science, and try matching the the skills of their ancestors.(Visited 6 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

How Color is Being Used

first_imgThere were 82 photos uploaded by 26 contributors at the LCD Soundsystem show. Here’s an example of how that content was shared by the Twitter user @tewks. Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Related Posts richard macmanus Another point worth mentioning is that conversation can happen around an album. Here’s an example from ReadWriteWeb’s own Tyler Gillies, who used Color at two recent events in Portland: PDX 11 Civic Hackathonand PDX Open Source GIS. 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Tags:#Location#Series#UX Evolutions#web center_img Another example that Patil mentioned, where a smaller gathering of people was able to create a useful Color album, was at the scene of a car fire. Patil said that two people took photos from intersections and third person from a balcony.Other examples that Color provided us were albums from the Where 2.0 conference and a block party in Kentucky.These early use cases show the potential of Color to share experiences with people near you, using smartphones. Of course it remains to be seen whether this activity becomes widespread, but the early examples at least show that it can be used across a wide range of daily activities. Let us know if these use cases have changed your mind about Color’s potential, or if you still think it just won’t fly. A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… In yesterday’s post, several commenters and tweeters claimed that Color was only useful for large events – therefore they doubted that Color would be used as regularly as Twitter. The following example may counter that view. This is from a BBQ, with only 3 photo contributors. This album also includes one video. Yesterday we compared the recent launch of new photo and video sharing app Color to the arrival of Twitter five years ago. Like Twitter, Color is an innovative app that has intrigued early adopters and has the potential to catch on in a big way. It’s also popularizing a new buzzword: proximity. Yesterday we looked at an early use case for Color: photo sharing at the premiere of a Hollywood movie. However, it wasn’t clear what value Color users at that event got from the app. So we asked the company for more information about the user experience so far and to give us more examples of how Color is being used.In this post we explore some of those other examples of Color usage, including a concert and a BBQ. Also we talk to Color’s Chief Product Officer DJ Patil and ask him to explain more about the product vision.Prior to joining Color’s founding team, DJ Patil was LinkedIn’s Chief Scientist. Via Patil’s LinkedIn profile, we see just how ambitious the Color team is about its product: “We’re out to change the world with how people interact and share experience through their mobile devices.” Color is a smartphone app that enables you to share photos and videos with a group of people at the same location as you. Patil told us that there have been a “wide array of use cases” for Color so far. They range from large gatherings (movie premieres, tech conferences, music concerts) to smaller groups (BBQs, “journalistic events” like the scene of a car fire, cooking groups).Patil also emphasized that the company is still exploring use cases and they don’t want to “impose our projection of how to use the app” on people.What Happens to the Content?There has been confusion about where the content generated by Color goes and how is it shared. Are the photos taken using Color archived? Patil explained that if you participate in a Color group, that content is not only shared in real-time with others in proximity to you, it also appears in the ‘History’ section of the app as an album. You can share albums, photos and videos using Twitter, Facebook, email or SMS. So far, Color has no search or archiving mechanism on its website. So the only way that people who weren’t at an event are likely to see the related album is if its been shared via the likes of Twitter and Facebook.Use Cases So FarSo how has Color been used so far? One example is a recent concert at Madison Square Garden by LCD Soundsystem, a popular electronics band. Here is the archived album for that show.
