Pinnick to discuss potential Super Eagles return with Moses

first_imgNigerian Football Federation (NFF) president Amaju Pinnick has revealed he’ll meet with Victor Moses to consider a return to the national team.The Chelsea wingback announced his retirement from international football back in August 2018 sighting family and club commitment as reasons for his decision.The 28-year-old who made his debut for the Nigerian national team against Rwanda in 2012 played a huge role in helping the west Africans claim the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa.Pinnick believes the former Crystal Palace Player deserves a ceremonious exit from the national team as he hopes to convince him back to the squad.“I believe he is someone that has paid his dues and he shouldn’t just leave Nigerian football unceremoniously. I talk to him every day and I make him understand that he can still return,” Pinnick told Channels TV, as quoted by Goal.Tammy Abraham, ChelseaChelsea hat-trick hero Tammy Abraham hopes for more Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Tammy Abraham hopes this season will be his big breakthrough at Chelsea after firing his first hat-trick for the club in Saturday’s 5-2 win at Wolves.“He can’t just say he is going and we let him go just like that. I will be meeting with him and his agent soon at a roundtable and even if he wants to go, there must be a ceremony for him to go.”“Just like what England did for Wayne Rooney. We must celebrate them at every point in time.”“Even if he says I’m begging him, I don’t mind. It is not as if we don’t have players, but we need to encourage our players so that others will know that even when they retire, we still have them in mind, even though some of them retire because of ego.”last_img read more

Every doorbell company should offer free cloud storage

first_img1:53 See All Smart Home Security Cameras reading • More security camera companies should offer free cloud storage Here’s how to install the Ring Door View Cam on your peephole Amazon’s Blink XT2 outdoor security camera survived a heat wave and a rainstorm For a free security camera, look no further than your old phone How to install the Ring Door View Cam Free cloud storage is kind of a big deal The RemoBell S isn’t the first smart doorbell from Remo Plus. Its battery-powered $199 RemoBell has many limitations that make it tough to recommend. Fortunately, the RemoBell S is a significant improvement. I first spied the RemoBell S at CES 2019 and liked its black finish and simple design. It’s hardwired, meaning it can’t be powered by batteries like its predecessor and some of its competitors, such as the $199 Ring Video Doorbell 2. Your RemoBell S purchase includes a Power Kit, which is required for installation with mechanical chimes. This process is pretty straightforward, but be sure to ask a qualified professional if you have questions, or consult Remo Plus’s walkthrough video.  The RemoBell S also supports Alexa and Google Assistant voice commands. Basically, you get access to a lot of the same things without the headache of a monthly subscription plan.  Of course, the RemoBell S isn’t perfect. I don’t like the Remo Plus app. It’s minimal, but somehow manages to look outdated and clunky too. It also has an optional fisheye view on the live feed screen that makes it more difficult to pick out details.  remoapp1At least the fisheye view is optional. Screenshots by Megan Wollerton/CNET Ring still sells its original Video Doorbell for $100 (the closest competitor to the RemoBell S), but Ring charges $3 per month to view any recorded, saved clips captured when it detects motion. No, $3 per month isn’t much to spend, but why pay for a subscription plan when you don’t have to? And most of Ring’s doorbells cost $199; the high-end hardwired Ring Video Doorbell Pro costs a whopping $249. Pricing in the $200 range is pretty standard across the board for DIY smart doorbells. But the RemoBell S is quietly changing things. (Maybe we really will have another Wyze trend on our hands at some point. It’s a little too soon to tell.) Ring did not immediately respond to CNET’s request for comment.  Now playing: Watch this: The RemoBell S has three-day free cloud storage. I like that. Chris Monroe/CNET Earlier this month I wrote about Wyze, a smart home company whose uber-affordable products hold their own alongside Nest and other high-end brands. That trend continues with the RemoBell S from startup Remo Plus. The RemoBell S has all of the regular stuff you get with every live streaming doorbell, like HD resolution and night vision. It also has three-day free cloud storage. In a market dominated by brands with optional subscription services — that are actually quite necessary if you want any access to saved video clips — free cloud storage is a unique offering and kind of a big deal. Factor in its $99 upfront cost and the hardwired RemoBell S is well worth considering. The Remo Plus app is a bit clunky, but it’s a small price to pay for such a great value.  Why pay for a monthly subscription when you can get roughly the same thing for free? (Honestly, I’m asking. Let me know in the comments.) • Aug 30 • Battling bot vacs: iRobot Roomba S9+ vs Neato Botvac D7 Connected Comments Share your voicecenter_img CNET Smart Home CNET Smart Home Aug 30 • iRobot Roomba S9 Plus vs. Neato Botvac D7 Connected Aug 31 • Alexa can tell you if someone breaks into your house 12 smart doorbells to watch over your front stoop Is it better than Ring?  It’s hard to argue with the value of the $99 RemoBell S. Its relatively low upfront cost and generous three-day free cloud storage has a ton of appeal. Add on its decent performance and integration with Alexa and Google Assistant and it’s easy to see why the RemoBell S has replaced the $100 Ring Video Doorbell as the best value for a smart doorbell.  I wish the Remo Plus app were better and I don’t know why Remo Plus gave the live feed a fisheye effect, but the RemoBell S is a strong competitor alongside brands like Ring. Definitely consider the RemoBell S if you’re looking for a hardwired video doorbell with free cloud storage.  Also, I have a plea for companies that don’t currently offer any free cloud storage. Apple is going to make it look like you’re nickle-and-diming when it turns on Secure Video and its 10-day free clip storage requirement for HomeKit cameras when iOS 13 hits in September. Please consider it. Even a few hours of free access makes a difference.  6 Tags Read more Aug 31 • Best smart light bulbs for 2019 (plus switches, light strips, accessories and more) 13 Photoslast_img read more

Gang cons people out of money assuring jobs

first_imgGang cons people out of money assuring jobs The Police Bureau of Investigation (PBI) have nabbed five members of a gang involved in duping retired persons and making off with their hard-earned savings.At a press conference at the PBI Dhaka metro office in Agargaon on Saturday, it was said that the gang members were arrested on Friday from a house in Pallabi of the capital city.The arrested five are Mohammed Haroun Ar Rashid, Sanaj Saha, Shamsul Alam Majumdar, Aminul Islam and Mohammed Moksedur Rahman.PBI stated that so far this gang has conned 12 persons including a retired secretary, joint secretary, a senior bank official and other senior officers. The gang managed to swindle Tk 14.8 million from just one joint secretary alone.PBI additional DIG Mohammed Mainul Hasan said that the accused would first place a false job vacancy advertisement in the newspapers.The ad would state that priority would be given to retired bankers and retired civil and military officers. When the interested persons applied, the swindlers would target certain ones among them and bring them to their sham office.Mainul said the con men would then bring in another one of their associates, dressed in a suit, tie and hat, speaking in Hindi and acting as an Indian ‘marwari’ businessman. At one stage they would start up a card game, ‘winning’ hundreds of thousands of taka from the ‘Indian businessman’. They would cleverly win the job applicants’ confidence and propose that they become partners in their business. They would take money as investment from the targeted applicant and tell him to contact them later. But then they would pack up and leave the office with no trace.PBI Dhaka Metro’s special police super Mohammed Abul Kalam Azad said so far they had received complaints from 12 persons who were cheated.However, they felt, the number was probably higher. Cases have been filed against the arrested persons and a search is on for others of the gang.last_img read more

There are also issues with aging road design. Clark explains the goal of the plan is to not only drill down on why those crashes are happening but to look for solutions to make streets safer.The public is invited to comment on the draft safety plan at a public meeting Wednesday night. It’s from 5:30 to 7:00 at H-GAC’s offices at 3555 Timmons.Clark said they’re also taking public comment online.

UM Reverses Course Fires Durkin

first_imgBy Sean Yoes, Baltimore AFRO Editor, syoes@afro.comTwo weeks after Jordan McNair, a sophomore offensive tackle for the University of Maryland collapsed during a team workout in May, he died after suffering a heatstroke.Nothing can bring back McNair, the 19-year-old beloved son of Tonya Wilson and Marty McNair. But, perhaps yesterday’s decision by the University of Maryland to reverse course and fire UM football coach D.J. Durkin for his role in their son’s death may help them feel some sense of comfort or justice.In a reversal, the University of Maryland decided to fire UM football coach D.J. Durkin for his role in the death of sophomore offensive lineman Jordan McNair in May. (Photo: Facebook)Durkin, who had been suspended by the University of Maryland Board of Regents in the wake of McNair’s death, was reinstated on Oct. 30, causing shockwaves of anger among many. However, on Oct. 31, Maryland reversed its original decision and fired the embattled football coach.“The overwhelming majority of stakeholders expressed serious concerns about coach Durkin…a departure is in the best interest of the university,” said Wallace Loh, University of Maryland President in a statement.“Relief, surprise, a level of gratitude that the right thing was done, so far,” said Marty McNair, in response to the firing of Durkin during an interview on “Good Morning America,” Nov. 1. “The decision that Dr. Loh made, this is a step in the right direction,” McNair added.Hassan Murphy, one of the attorneys for Jordan McNair’s parents said their focus will turn to the legacy of their son.“Our fight now is about getting justice for this family and for Jordan’s name and in his memory,” Murphy said. “Well hopefully, this will mark a change and an end. I think part of why Jordan died was as a result of the culture (within UM athletics). As Jordan was literally in the early stages of death, they were calling him names,” Murphy added.Marty McNair had a message for all student athletes like his son, in order to prevent another tragedy.“Know your bodies and to know when your body tells you to stop, stop,” he said. “Because you only have one body and I don’t wish anyone to be in the situation that we’re in right now with Jordan.”last_img read more

The scalable infrastructure also supports game data and core services required for gameplay including matchmaking, high scores, stats, and inventory.Perhaps surprisingly, Google Cloud platform is not necessarily a part of Google’s big gaming initiative announced earlier this week at GDC: Stadia.“Google Cloud for games is basically supporting all platforms and all devices for Google Cloud,” Rayan said. “We look at Stadia as one platform, but in Google Cloud we host mobile, PC games, console games.”The way Stadia is set-up, he said, Google is bringing the console to the Edge Network, essentially putting the gaming system in the data centers.Google Cloud supports that, but it isn’t required.“There is an advantage to going with us because we are on the same network, but it’s not required,” he said. “Stadia as a platform is agnostic of what your backend is, it could be using any other cloud.”From Google’s point of view, Stadia games that also host their game servers on Google Cloud Platform can predictably expect low latency and data security, a benefit of leveraging Google’s private network.It isn’t clear what that would mean to games that decide to use different cloud services or how or if that would be in some way labeled as a potentially different service for customers.center_img News Wednesday that Ubisoft’s “The Division 2” runs on Google Cloud is the latest example of the company’s push to expand its services beyond the barebone resources for mobile titles, to rich, expansive support for major AAA games.“We were traditionally focused on mobile because of the strength of ‘Pokemon Go,’ but we have also now started to help console players with our partners,” Sunil Rayan, Google Cloud for Games Managing Director, told Variety in a recent interview. “Last year we had zero AAA games on Google Cloud, now we have six.”That includes “The Division 2,” battle royale phenom “Apex Legends” as well as work they’re doing with Square Enix.Rayan spelled some of that shift out in a blog post that went live Wednesday morning, in the midst of the Game Developers Conference.last_img read more
