City to expand stadium

first_img Manchester City Council have granted permission for up to 14,500 extra seats to be added to the stadium – 6,250 at either end and 2,000 around the pitch – but the club will take an incremental approach by first developing one end of the ground before making a decision on further expansion. “Manchester City Football Club has today received formal notification of the granting of planning permission to expand the Etihad Stadium,” a club statement said. “It is the club’s current intention to first proceed with the development of the South Stand. The opportunity also exists to expand the North Stand and to introduce additional pitch-side seating in the future for which planning permission has also been granted.” The planning permission granted on Thursday is valid for three years, and City would need to take up the opportunity to begin work on the North Stand within that time or submit a fresh application. Development of the South Stand will take the ground’s capacity to around 54,000. Manchester City have confirmed plans to add an extra tier of seating to the south stand of the Etihad Stadium after receiving planning permission on Thursday.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Indian Premier League Jimmy Neesham deletes his tweet on MS Dhoni’s controversial run out in the IPL final against Mumbai Indians

first_imgNew Delhi: It’s been four days to the twelfth edition of the Indian Premier League Final, but Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s runout controversy is still fresh amonst the fans. While chasing 150, Chennai Super Kings (CSK) lost wickets in quick succession and the onus to get the innings back on track was once agains on the skipeer MS Dhoni. Dhoni who is usually a very good judge while calling for a quick single or pushing for doubles and more blipped on the night. Running an overthrow, he was at the receiving end as Ishan Kishan hit the stumps directly. It was a close call and the decision went against Dhoni. Following that among the many reactions that emerged on social media one was from Jimmy Neesham.Dhoni had to walk back to the dugout after facing only eight deliveries for 2 runs. They didn’t have specialized batsmen out there when it really mattered and they lost the final by one run. A lot of fans didn’t think that was out as in their perception, the CSK skipper had safely crossed the return crease. Neesham in his tweet trolled MSD fans as he wrote: “I love how passionate some fans are about our sport. I have huge respect for MS but how anyone could see the below photo and say it’s not out truly astounds me.” Attached was a different side to the run out angle, which, unlikely several other angles, showed that Dhoni was out.The fans in their response put up other angles which showed that MS was inside the line at the time of the LED lights went off. While one fan reminded Jimmy of how he himself had been ran out by Dhoni, others posted pictures of the side angle which proved Dhoni was not out.Neesham deleted his post:I’ve deleted my tweet about MS Dhoni’s runout, not because I’ve changed my mind, but because:1. I’m sick of seeing the same dumb comments in my feed 200 times a day. 2. I just don’t actually care. Please don’t bother tweeting me about it again. Have a good day everyone 👍— Jimmy Neesham (@JimmyNeesh) May 15, 2019 For all the Latest Sports News News, Indian Premier League News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps.last_img read more

England Beats Brazil to Reach Final

first_imgBrewster took his chances well and was assisted by the impressive Manchester City midfielder Phil Foden.England will face Spain – who beat Mali 3-1 in Wednesday’s other semi-final, with Abel Ruiz scoring twice.The Young Lions will look to match their Under-20 counterparts, who won their World Cup in June.It took only 10 minutes for Brewster to get his first, meeting an inch-perfect delivery from Chelsea’s 16-year-old midfielder Callum Hudson-Odoi and finishing at the second attempt.Flamengo defender Wesley capped a dominant response from Brazil with the equaliser after 21 minutes, and striker Brenner rolled wide a great chance to put them ahead 15 minutes before the break.But Brewster’s second, taking him top of the tournament’s goalscoring chart, sent England in 2-1 up at half-time.The 17-year-old completed his hat-trick in the 76th minute after a pin-point low cross from Emile Smith Rowe and England kept their cool to withstand Brazil’s late rally.“I really believe in our players and I think whoever we play against we can be a match and be better than the opposition,” said England head coach Cooper. “But we have to work hard for that. We’ll never change our style. We believe in it.“There isn’t a bigger game they can play in their career at their age than a World Cup knockout game. And obviously they are going to go and play the ultimate game – the final.”A hat-trick in a 4-1 quarter-final victory over the USA, followed by another in Wednesday’s semi-final, made the 17-year-old the competition’s top scorer.“No words to describe how we all feel right now!! One last big push ahead fully focused on that now”, he wrote on Twitter after the Brazil game.His prolific form follows in the footsteps of Kelechi Iheanacho, now at Leicester City, who won player of the tournament at the 2013 Under-17s World Cup and narrowly missed out on the golden boot.Iheanacho joined the Foxes from Manchester City for £25m this summer, but Liverpool will be unlikely to entertain the prospect of Brewster going anywhere – except Jurgen Klopp’s first-team.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram FIFA U-17 WORLD CUPA hat-trick from Liverpool striker Rhian Brewster sent England into Saturday’s FIFA Under-17 World Cup final with a 3-1 win over Brazil wednesday.Steve Cooper’s side weathered Kolkata’s 29c heat and humidity, plus sustained pressure from their opponents.last_img read more

Death to Flash: 3 Great HTML 5 Demos

first_imgRelated Posts Tags:#start#startups Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting This morning ReadWriteWeb accompanied The Great Wall Club (a group of Chinese mobile executives) to Google for a look at some of the company’s development tools. While Developer Relations Manager Patrick Chanezon was unable to comment on yesterday’s news of Google’s threat to cease operations in China, he did show off some impressive demos utilizing HTML 5. In late December 2008, ReadWriteWeb ran a story entitled, 5 Exciting Things to Look Forward to in HTML 5. At the time we were excited that HTML 5’s canvas element would allow for scripting on the fly. In addition to the canvas API, HTML 5’s audio/video tags and the O3D API (3D rendering) provide developers with powerful tools for rendering graphics and applications in the browser. Chanezon explained how real-time processing on the client side would dramatically increase the speed of cloud-based applications – a particularly important point for mobile developers. Additionally, unlike Adobe’s Flash and Microsoft’s Silverlight, HTML 5 is plug-in free and non-proprietary. With little more than a few lines of javascript and the HTML 5 APIs, Chanezon showed us the potential of the new specification. 1. O3D Beach Demo: The enclosed demo shows how fast it is to change whole portions of an application when editing in-browser. 2. Flash-like Demo: 9elements created a project that resembles a flash application but encompasses a variety of HTML 5-related tools.

Mobile Plays A Growing Role In Cyber Monday Shopping [Infographic]

first_imgRelated Posts The Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technology A total of almost $1.25 billion was spent on Cyber Monday in 2011. That was nearly 12% of all the money spent by November online shoppers… in one day.Cyber Monday – A Gimmick That StuckCyber Monday – the first Monday back at work after the Thanksgiving Holiday – has become as important to the holiday shopping season as Black Friday – the day after Thanksgiving – has traditionally been. This year, mobile shoppers are expected to increasingly turn to their smartphones and tablets to hunt for deals, make purchases and generally inform their shopping decisions. In 2011, 12% of shoppers visited a website from their mobile devices, of which 6.7% made a purchase, double the rate from 2010. The average mobile shopper (42%) is between the ages of 25 and 44, with men spending more money than women from their mobile devices ($312 to $222, respectively). Cyber Monday was started in 2005 by Shop.org as a gimmick to get people to shop online the Monday after the Thanksgiving weekend. The name has stuck and become a tradition that has spanned the globe. A lion’s share of those mobile purchases were made from iPads. It is reasonable to assume that tablets are better vehicles for digital shoppers as the ability to visit full screen websites that are not necessarily applications or mobile optimized pages makes it easier for mobile shoppers to hunt down exactly the items they are looking for.Show-Rooming Is ZoomingBut this year, the notion of “show-rooming” will likely be increasingly popular, which may boost the smartphone’s influence. Show-rooming is the practice of going to a brick-and-mortar retail store and perusing goods – but then checking the prices of items with a mobile device and buying online if you can find a better price. In many ways, what was once a niche market segment has now become mainstream behavior. This year we are not likely to see many new trends (where behavior is fundamentally altered by smartphones and tablets) but what we will see is that the sheer volume of people taking advantage of existing trends and behaviors increase as more and more users get comfortable checking their apps and websites looking for discounts and making purchases. We’re likely to see more people than ever use services and technologies like Square, PayPal mobile, NFC (Google Wallet etc.), Dwolla and LevelUp.This holiday season will not be the coming out party for mobile payments and purchases, we’re past that. Instead, it’ll be a confirmation that those behaviors are now mainstream.Check out this HSN infographic on the history of Cyber Monday and how mobile usage has increased since its founding: Tags:#commerce What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech …center_img Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement dan rowinski Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaceslast_img read more

Advice For Phil Jackson Hire Phil Jackson

Win shareJacksonEveryone else > 3/4100%32.3% 2/3 – 3/450%9.3% < 2/30%0.4% With Phil Jackson returning to the NBA as president of the New York Knicks — his first front-office job — there’s one move he can make to greatly improve the Knicks’ chances at success: Hire himself as coach.I’m not saying that the Knicks’ players are a perfect match for Jackson’s “triangle” offense, or that I have any insight into his coaching shortlist — except that any name on that list other than his will be less likely to win championships.To illustrate, let’s take a quick look at some of Jackson’s accomplishments:I know “count the rings” is a controversial argument, but Jackson has won a lot of championships. This graph also doubles as a good reason why he should return to coaching: He’s fallen behind the rest of the NBA. Time to catch up!Though already a Hall of Famer and widely regarded as one of the best coaches in NBA history, Jackson still sometimes gets criticized for having won his 11 rings exclusively with some of the best players in history: First Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen (and later Dennis Rodman) with the Chicago Bulls, then Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O’Neal (and later Pau Gasol) with the Los Angeles Lakers.Of course, if he had taken over last year’s Lakers squad — with Kobe, Gasol, Dwight Howard and Steve Nash — and trounced everyone on his way to a 12th trophy, he would have faced the same criticism. It’s ridiculous: Take any player who Jackson won a championship with, and he has won at least five more without them. The reverse isn’t even close. Among Jackson’s regular starters, Rodman had two championships without him, and Shaq had one. That’s it.But the point that Jackson’s teams were all very strong, while mostly true, misses a critical point: They won more championships than even incredibly strong teams are expected to.Jackson’s teams won more than 75 percent of their games in the regular season six times, and each time won the NBA championship. Since the introduction of the 3-point shot (1979-80), 31 non-Jackson-coached teams have won more than 75 percent of their games, and only 10 won the title.But maybe his top teams are just better than the rest of the NBA’s top teams. So let’s look at the next step down: Jackson’s teams won between two-thirds and three-fourths of their games in the regular season 10 times, winning five championships (50 percent). The rest of the NBA has done the same just 10 of 108 times (9.3 percent).None of Jackson’s four teams who failed to win two-thirds of their games ever won a championship. But of the 765 other teams in that category, only three ever did. To summarize: One reason Jackson’s consistently great teams may have done so well relative to their records is that their records more accurately reflect their strength, more so than the random NBA team that runs well for a year or so. But Jackson’s dynastic teams do even better in the playoffs than other dynasties.For example, the average Phil Jackson team saw its win-rate drop by about 4 percent in the playoffs (against much stronger competition) compared with the regular season (against average competition). The league dropped, on average, by 11 percent. Gregg Popovich is notorious for resting starters and otherwise not taking the regular season seriously, and even his San Antonio Spurs see a 9.5 percent drop. To find any dynasty nearly as consistent as Jackson’s, you have to go back to the 1980s. Pat Riley’s Lakers’ win rate dropped only 5 percent (though if you add in Riley’s years with the Knicks and the Miami Heat, his average jumps back to 10 percent).Even if Jackson had nothing to do with his teams’ strength in general, his ability to keep them performing their best or even better in the playoffs is remarkable. Given the extreme rarity of clutch-like effects in sports, is it more likely that two to three different teams independently possessed this quality, and Jackson just happened to coach them? Or did Jackson’s coaching instill this quality? read more

Emery praises young Arsenal star Emile Smith Rowe

first_imgArsenal manager Unai Emery was full of praise for rising young star Emile Smith Rowe after his stunning goal in their 1-1 draw with Atletico Madrid on ThursdayThe 17-year-old started for the Gunners in Singapore and cancelled out Luciano Vietto’s opener by scoring a remarkable goal.While the International Champions Cup game ended in a penalty shoot-out defeat for Arsenal, Emery was left impressed by what he was from Smith Rowe after handing the youngster his first senior start for the club two days before his 18th birthday“He is 17 years old but he has grown up in the academy and we need to give the young players the opportunity to work with us every day and play matches like today,” said Emery, according to Sky Sports.“They are working hard in training to be involved with the first team.“Today I am very happy with his work on the pitch, but not only today. It’s every day. He’s starting today’s match because his performances have been good in every training session.”Jadon SanchoMerson believes Arsenal should sign Sancho Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho might be the perfect player to play for the Gunners, according to former England international Paul Merson.The Spaniard also gave a chance to other young players in Reiss Nelson, Jordi Osei-Tutu and Eddie Nketiah.“I think this is the moment for the young players to show quality like Emile did. Historically, Arsenal has worked with young players to give them the chance to work with the first team, for them to show their quality in each match,” continued Emery.“I think that every player played well in this game, against a big team.“For Smith Rowe to score is very good for him and the team. What’s important for us is that every young player is working very hard.”Next up for Arsenal is another pre-season match against Emery’s former employers Paris Saint-Germain on Saturday.last_img read more
