first_imgBut Zidane insists Bale had permission to be absent on Monday and Tuesday morning and that he is not aware the 30-year-old wants to be sold.“It was a personal issue and he had permission yesterday to go,” Zidane said in a press conference on Tuesday.“It was a personal issue and he went, that’s it, no story. He also went because he’s not available to play.“But I don’t think he ever speaks about leaving. When he is available he plays, that’s all there is to it.”Bale came close to a move to Chinese club Jiangsu Suning last summer after Zidane said it would be “best for everyone” if he left Real Madrid.But the deal fell through at the last minute due to a disagreement over the transfer fee and Zidane is not expecting any fresh offers in January.– Unimpressed –“I don’t think there will be an offer and I haven’t thought about it either. Gareth is a Real Madrid player,” said Zidane.“What happened in the summer was the situation at the time and in the end Gareth stayed and all the better for everyone.“It’s true what was said didn’t help but for me the result is the most important thing. He’s an important player and it’s important he plays and he plays well.“If in January he says he’ll stay, there will be talk about the transfer window in the summer. Unfortunately people will always speak about these things but he’s here and everyone is happy he’s here.”Zidane claimed he has a “good relationship” with Bale but sources have told AFP the forward remains on bad terms with the Frenchman.Bale was particularly unimpressed by his omission from Madrid’s squad to face Club Brugge in the Champions League earlier this month.After the match, Zidane put his absence down to a fitness issue but those close to Bale insist he was fully fit.“I spoke to him and I spoke to James (Rodriguez). Both of them weren’t available to play against Brugge and they didn’t play,” said Zidane. “There’s nothing else to say about that.”Bale will miss Madrid’s La Liga game at home to Leganes on Wednesday, along with Nacho, who has a knee problem, and Marco Asensio, who is recovering from a anterior cruciate ligament injury.James Rodriguez is also unlikely to be involved as he missed training on Tuesday due to the birth of his child.Real Madrid are sixth in the table but only two points off the top, with a game in hand.0Shares0000(Visited 16 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Real Madrid’s Welsh forward Gareth Bale plays against Granada in La Liga on October 5 © AFP / PIERRE-PHILIPPE MARCOUMADRID, Spain, Oct 29 – Zinedine Zidane insists Gareth Bale was given permission by Real Madrid to travel to London on Monday, and claims the Welshman never talks about leaving the club.Bale has not played since injuring his calf during a game for Wales on October 13 and his trip to England has prompted speculation he will seek an exit from Madrid in January.last_img read more

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest The Ohio Federation of Soil and Water Conservation (OFSWCD) and its’ partner, USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) are celebrating National Volunteer Week, April 12-18. The goal of this observance is to recognize people, who through volunteering, have furthered imaginative and productive ways to better their communities. Additionally, the hope is that by calling attention to these contributions, others will be inspired to emulate these public-spirited volunteers.“For NRCS, our organization nationwide has utilized more than 25,000 volunteers, who have donated 318,500 hours valued at $7.2 million,” said Terry Cosby, NRCS State Conservationist. “For Ohio, we were recognized with the ‘Chief’s Cup,’ the highest National Earth Team Program Award presented for excellence in leadership support, innovation, training, service and achievements. As a result of our focus on the Earth Team, Ohio led the country in both number of volunteers and volunteer hours with 5,310 volunteers and 38,285 hours of volunteer service valued at a whopping $861,418!”For the OFSWCD, “volunteers” created the conservation based organization more than 70 years ago. Throughout Ohio’s 88 counties, each Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD) is led by a locally-elected, volunteer board consisting of five supervisors. All in all, these 440 supervisors provide dedicated hours and multiple contributions to focused conservation programs and practices completed within each county making positive contributions to improving soil health, water quality and overall quality of life.“Nearly everyone has multiple claims on their time and resources. For many, it isn’t easy to find the time to be a volunteer,” said Kris Swartz, OFSWCD President and Wood County SWCD Supervisor. “National Volunteer Week is a good time to reflect on how each of us can contribute and to thank the many who have stepped up to make a positive impact on our natural resources.”For NRCS, the “Earth Team” program utilizes a volunteer workforce that is making a difference in every county in the nation. NRCS works with private landowners to improve soil quality, conserve water, improve air quality and enhance wildlife habitat. Earth Team volunteers work side-by-side with conservation professionals and are an integral part of the conservation partnership.The job of conserving our natural resources cannot be done by the government alone. Every individual can aid in reducing soil erosion, conserving our water and improving its quality, and developing pride in our country’s natural resource heritage.“Our organizations work hand-in-hand together to conserve our natural resources. Working together, our organizations are making a difference. But we cannot do this alone. We need our local constituencies to get engaged and involved in this worthy cause,” Swartz said.To learn more about volunteer efforts, please contact your county SWCD and/or NRCS office. Or contact either the OFSWCD office at 614.784.1900 or NRCS’ State Earth Team Coordinator Dianne Johnson at 614.255.2463, www.oh.nrcs.usda.gov.last_img read more

first_imgThis morning, at the CTIA Wireless 2011 conference in Orlando, Florida, Samsung officially introduced the newest version of its Galaxy Tab, the 8.9-inch edition. For those keeping track, that means that Samsung now has three different Android tablets: the original 7-inch, the 10.1-inch announced in February at Mobile World Congress, and now this medium-sized tablet.On stage, Samsung execs touted “personal choice” and a strategy where “one size doesn’t fit all,” but is that the case? Or is this just an expensive experiment in determining which tablets consumers will actually choose, if they’re given the option to do so? Related Posts What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … Credit: CNETBut with so many similarities between both devices, it begs the question: why choose one over the other? It almost seems like Samsung is experimenting here – throwing out a bunch of different screen size options and waiting to see which one consumers adopt. It’s a very different strategy than the tablet leader, Apple, employs. It makes one iPad, and only one iPad. And it sells.But is the iPad the ideal tablet size for everyone? Will tablet size become a personal choice issue, similar to how Android phones vary in form factor, too? Will having different screen options be a factor in your tablet choice? Let us know what you think in the comments.Image credits: Samsung, CNET sarah perez The news of the latest tablet, the 8.9-inch Galaxy Tab, was leaked online prior to today’s announcement. But Samsung did provide a little surprise this morning – it actually revealed the new device’s pricing and launch time frame, along with that of its larger sibling.The 8.9-inch Tab will retail for $469 for the 16 GB version and $569 for the 32 GB version, and will arrive sometime early this summer. Meanwhile, the larger tablet will be $499 for the 16 GB and $599 for the 32 GB version, and will arrive June 8th.Small, Medium & Large TabsThe price differential between the two tablets doesn’t represent a wide enough gap to make choosing one tablet on the other an issue of economics, nor are the tablet specs remarkably different either (beyond screen size, of course).Both will support 4G (HSPA+ up to 21 Mbps, LTE & WiMax support coming in a later version), Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. Both are powered by a 1 GHz dual-core processor. Both have the same 1280×800 HD display and 1080p video playback. Both have a 2-megapixel front-facing camera and a 3-megapixel on in back. Both will run Adobe Flash. Both feature Samsung’s new skin designed specifically or Android 3.0 tablet computers, something Samsung calls the “TouchWiz user experience.” This UI layer features a customizable, live-updating homescreen filled with widgets and a Mini Apps Tray for launching favorite programs. They also both feature Samsung’s Hubs – the portals for interacting with music, media and social content, made available through branded apps.The 8.9-inch tablet, in particular, measures 8.6mm wide, and weighs 470 g, but both tablets are thinner and light.center_img Tags:#Android#Apple#mobile#Trends Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces The Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technologylast_img read more

first_imgTwo brothers, residents of Gurugram, were arrested by the on Tuesday night for allegedly duping a resident of Delhi running a business in Noida in 2009, the police said on Wednesday.The police said that the accused, Amit and Aman Sayal, had duped the victim of more than ₹2 crore on the pretext of selling him a property, which was not even registered in their name.“They had provided the victim, Sudhir Gupta, with fake documents pertaining to the property. The victim owned a property in Sector 6 and had showed interest in an adjacent property, which the accused claimed to own,” said Manoj Kumar Pant, Station House Officer, Sector 20 police station.The police said that the victim paid the amount to the accused in instalments and was also provided with fake ownership documents. However, when the victim went to the Noida Authority to complete the registration, they found that the property was not owned by the accused.“A case had been registered in this regard and and a non-bailable warrant was issued for the accused by the district court,” said a senior police officer.The police also said that the accused had been involved in cases of fraud. About 37 cases have been identified so far against them all over India, including Hyderabad, Mumbai, Delhi, Gujarat.

first_imgVirat Kohli, in his first ICC tournament as captain, had almost the perfect start against Pakistan as India romped home to victory by 124 runs in a rain-truncated match on Sunday.  India posted 319/3 batting first in 48 overs and then bowled out Pakistan for 164 in the rain-curtailed opener.Kohli’s captaincy has drawn  praise from former Australian captain, Michael Clarke, who lauded the passion and emotion shown by the 28-year-old in his stint as India skipper so far.”You see his passion and his emotion, when he bats. You can (also) see that in his captaincy,” he said.WATCH VIDEO HEREClarke conceded his views  on the Indian captain were from an objective viewpoint, “I have never played under Virat, so again captaincy-wise I am looking from afar. He has done a pretty good job. I think he is growing every day, he is  working out his style and it does take time.””Sometimes, you need to go through experiences to work out your strengths and weaknesses and he will do that. He is wonderful player there is no doubt about it,” he added.The fact that Kohli wears his emotion on his sleeve is a good thing according to Clarke. ” Captaining a cricket team, it brings out your personality, whether you like it or not. You can’t hide, you are  on camera 24/7. So you watch the way Virat bats, I can see that in his captaincy. He can’t be the best player and the best captain in the world on his own though. He needs support from the team.”  advertisementComing to Yuvraj Singh and MS Dhoni, Clarke reiterated his point about age being just a number when it comes to the two stalwarts of the current Indian side.”To a certain extent, age is just a number though, It goes both ways, if you are in your late thirties or your teens. I don’t think you are too old if you can perform and everything that comes with that. Can you train? can you turn up on time and discipline yourself. MS Dhoni’s performances, they warrant selection in the Indian team,” he said.”If you are performing well enough, the question is  does he still want to play, can he keep performing consistently. Then there is no reason for the selectors to not pick him,” he added.last_img read more

first_img Dan Cohen AUTHOR Demolition of the aging White Hall office building at the former Chanute Air Force Base in east central Illinois is set to begin shortly, with removal of asbestos and lead-based paint from the World War II-era complex more than halfway completed.Demolition will take place simultaneously with asbestos and lead-based paint removal in different parts of the property, reported the Rantoul Press.Demolition of the building which spans about 500,000 square feet — the equivalent of two city blocks — is expected to finish by next summer, according to Paul Carroll, BRAC environmental coordinator for Chanute. Greenville, S.C.-based CB&I Federal Services is performing the work under a $7.9 million contract with the Air Force.The massive building — DOD’s largest until the Pentagon was completed — was left to decay since the installation closed in 1993 due to the prohibitive cost required to rehabilitate it. White Hall is included in the Chanute Field National Historical District list of Historical Places.The demolition will require about 2,000 truckloads of debris to be hauled offsite. About 90 percent of the construction waste — including brick, rebar and concrete — will be recycled. After the building is torn down, an estimated 1,500 loads of clean dirt will be used to grade the site, according to the story.last_img read more

NASA/JPL-Caltech You might not have done an intensive astronaut training course, but NASA still wants you to get involved in its next mission to Mars. The space agency is giving regular people like you and me a chance to send their name — etched onto a microchip — on the Mars 2020 mission. Not only that, but if you get your John Hancock etched into the spacecraft that flies to Mars, you’ll also rack up “frequent flyer” points and a souvenir boarding pass to show off to your Earth mates.It’s part of a campaign to build buzz around NASA’s Mars 2020 mission, which is sending a rover to the Red Planet to search for signs of past microbial life, collect samples and study Mars’ climate and geology. NASA is also billing the mission as “the initial leg of humanity’s first round trip to another planet” so being part of the expedition brings significant bragging rights.NASA has done this kind of thing before with the Orion mission and the InSight mission. On InSight, which touched down on Mars in November 2018, every one of NASA’s “frequent flyers” racked up roughly 300 million miles, which certainly beats what the budget airlines back on Earth are offering.The JPL team is busy working on the Mars 2020 rover, aiming to launch it in July 2020 ahead of a February 2021 touch down on Mars.
