Cavaliers moving Love to center, Thompson to reserve role

first_img“With Jae starting at the four, LeBron’s able to roam freely on the defensive end,” Lue said. “Jae will take the toughest matchup between the 3s and the 4s and LeBron will be able to roam and kind of quarterback our defense. Being that back line defense, talking, communicating, and also being able to pick off passes when guys are throwing bad passes. I like LeBron in that role because he’s great at being the help guy, being in the right spots at the right places, so I think it will be good for us.”For now, James is sidelined with a sprained left ankle sustained last week in practice. Lue said the three-time champion will not play in Wednesday night’s exhibition opener against Atlanta. James’ injury is not believed to be serious, and the Cavs will make sure he’s full healed before he plays.Lue said he expects James on the court at some point in the preseason. Cleveland opens the regular season on Oct. 17 against Irving and the Celtics. Lue has experimented with Love at center during training camp and believes the new-look lineup will create matchup problems for opposing centers as well as open the floor for LeBron James, Derrick Rose and others.“He’s a great passer,” Lue said of Love. “Fives (centers) have to get out and try to guard him on the pick and roll with LeBron and D-Rose and those guys making plays, so it’s going to be tough for those guys. We liked it.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSSEA Games: Philippines picks up 1st win in men’s water poloSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutoutCenter Tristan Thompson will come off the bench, and newly acquired forward Jae Crowder will take Love’s former spot, Lue said. Crowder, acquired this summer in the Kyrie Irving trade, is a strong defender.Lue said he spoke to Thompson about the switch and “it was great.” Thompson started all 78 games at center for Cleveland last season. In 2016, he made just 33 starts and the Cavs went on to win the NBA title.

I understand that at the end of the day it’s about winning and if you win, we all look good — whether you come off the bench or you start. And it’s not about who starts the game, it’s about who is in the game in the fourth and who is finishing it. So, I’m not worried. The last time I came off the bench, if history repeats itself, we had a parade in June. So, I’ll take it.“I’m going to go for Sixth Man of the Year, put myself in position to do that.”Lue has more options this season after Cleveland’s roster was overhauled with Irving being traded to Boston and the additions of Rose, Crowder, Dwyane Wade, Isaiah Thomas and Jeff Green.Wade will likely be Cleveland’s backup point guard until Thomas recovers from a hip injury, but Lue said he hasn’t committed to that idea just yet.As for Crowder, Lue said his defensive presence will free up James.ADVERTISEMENT BSP sees higher prices in November, but expects stronger peso, low rice costs to put up fight Brace for potentially devastating typhoon approaching PH – NDRRMC Typhoon Kammuri accelerates, gains strength en route to PH Nonong Araneta re-elected as PFF president MOST READ LATEST STORIESlast_img read more

The Reload: OSU Commits in Training Camp, Chuba Hubbard’s Mysterious Tweets and More

first_imgThe Reload is PFB’s recruiting recap, catching you up to speed on the latest news and rumors surrounding Oklahoma State recruiting, with an ear to the ground for what to expect in the future.Linebacker Target Opens up RecruitmentDevodrick Johnson, a four-star linebacker from Kimball High in Texas, recently picked Texas A&M over OSU, Mizzou, Houston, and several others. And after committing in mid July, one recent event may have him re-thinking his decision: A visit to ATX.Johnson visited the University of Texas last week, and although he does not hold an offer, I would not be surprised to see him opening things up in advance of what he may expect to be an offer from the Longhorns coming soon.Regardless, OSU was in hot pursuit before his first commitment. So at the moment, he’s back on the market, and I expect OSU will try their best to pick up where they left off with him.Explaining Tyler Polley’s top 5Four-star power forward Tyler Polley named his top 5 over the weekend and as I noted, mysteriously left Florida State, who was the presumed favorite, off his list. We got the explanation just a day later when another four-star Floridian, RaiQuan Gray, announced that he was committing to FSU. So it appears that the FSU staff, despite Polley being a household name for the Seminoles, accepted Gray’s commitment and takes the spot for the 2017 class. Not to say Polley was a clear FSU lock, but that gives a good window into how recruiting works. Either the coaching staff preferred Gray over Polley, or the coaches simply didn’t want to wait until Polley was ready to commit and accepted Gray’s instead. Hoops targets cut OSU from mixNo good news on the recruiting front at the moment, but OSU is still tied in with two targets who recently trimmed their list, and both cut OSU from the mix. The first who nixed the Cowboys was 2017 power forward Hasahn French, who Underwood offered at the end of July. The second is Brian Bowen, a five-star prospect from Saginaw, MI. Bowen named a top 12 that includes Kentucky, Mich. State, and others. But 100% of analysts have him staying at home and playing for the Sparty.OSU verbal commits in fall training campsFootball season has officially began for most of the OSU pledges, so here’s some video, albeit brief, of some of the future Pokes in action:Here’s OSU’s most recent pledge, Thabo Mwaniki:Stillwell, Guyer’s new QB1 putting it on the money to #OKState pledge @thabomwaniki.

He’s recently been very active interacting with other OSU commits and generally being an OSU advocate. But this week he posted this mysterious tweet, suggesting perhaps he’s still shopping around?The clock is always ticking.. #?? #? #? #? #?— Chuba Hubbard (@Hubbard_RMN) August 9, 2016I don’t know if he’s truly shopping the market, but I do know that those emoji’s were at one point his top schools: (Gun=OSU, Wave=Bama/Roll Tide, Duck=Oregon, Orange=Tennessee, Grape=TCU). So with Hubbard being the second highest rated OSU pledge in the 2017 class, this is something to follow as we head into the fall. At the moment, he’s an OSU commit. For obvious reasons, the OSU staff is going to do their best to hang on to the Canadian speedster.last_img read more

DDA okays TOD model for Delhi

first_imgNew Delhi: The Delhi Development Authority (DDA) on Tuesday approved a slew of measures at its meeting, chaired by Delhi’s Lieutenant-Governor Anil Baijal, including the measures to implement a transit-oriented development (TOD) model in the Capital, which is expected to focus city building in and around a transit node or corridor. This mode will be focused on large areas near rapid public transport, with ease of access to that transit facility in a bid to encourage increased usage of public transportation in the city. Also Read – After eight years, businessman arrested for kidnap & murderThe DDA said that the TOD model of development will help in the building of mixed-use, mixed-income developments where residential, commercial, civic or institutional establishments will be located close to each other, allowing for the formation of closely-knit social communities with vibrant shared spaces for the common public to use. Moreover, the Authority said that these developments will provide a variety of housing types for a range of income groups across the socio-economic scale and demographic types in the city. In order to facilitate this, all TOD integrated schemes will have a minimum component of 30 percent overall FAR (Floor Area Ratio) for residential usage and EWS FAR of 15 percent over and above the proposed FAR will be applicable. Also Read – Two brothers held for snatchingsIn addition to this, the DDA also approved certain amendments to the Master Plan Delhi 2021, under which banks will be allowed to house their bank lockers in the basements of the premises of the existing branch. Further, restaurants on the ground floor will not be allowed to operate unless they have valid appropriate licenses with all statutory clearances, as existing on or before Tuesday (September 17) and only on notified mixed-use streets. The DDA also approved the fixation of amalgamation charges for commercial properties in a bid to ensure ease of doing business. The new charges will be at 10 percent of the circle rates applicable at the time of submission of the request for amalgamation and will apply on the total area of the plot. The plots that are found to be amalgamated without permission and the lessee/owner approaches for regularisation, an additional charge of 20 percent of the rates may be recovered. Separately, the DDA also worked out that 10 percent of the market value of the plot and the market value of the extra floor generated will be calculated and the greater of the two will be charged towards amalgamated fees. Adding to these measures, the Authority also approved changes in the landuse policy for colleges and universities in the Narela sub-city, removal of embargo to execute conveyance deed for five years, changes to policy for damanges collection from residents and relaxations with respect to flats alloted to persons with disabilities.last_img read more

Services output growth plunges to 6month low

first_imgNew Delhi: The country’s services sector activity eased in March with slowest pace of output growth in six-months due to a slower expansion in new work, leading to weakest rate of hiring since last September, a monthly survey showed Thursday. The seasonally adjusted Nikkei India Services Business Activity Index fell to 52 in March from 52.5 in February, indicating the slowest expansion since last September. Despite the moderation, the services PMI was in the expansion territory for the 10th straight month. In PMI parlance, a print above 50 means expansion, while a score below that denotes contraction. Also Read – Thermal coal import may surpass 200 MT this fiscal”Indian service sector growth weakened at the end of the fourth quarter of FY18, with activity expanding at the slowest rate since last September,” said Pollyanna De Lima, Principal Economist at IHS Markit, author of the report. Meanwhile, optimism regarding the year-ahead outlook for business activity strengthened for the second month in a row. “Business expectations strengthened in March, indicating that services companies are hopeful that conditions will advance in the months to come. However, an anaemic pace of job creation hints that service providers are not fully convinced about a shift into a higher growth gear,” Lima said. Also Read – Food grain output seen at 140.57 mt in current fiscal on monsoon boostMeanwhile, the seasonally adjusted Nikkei India Composite PMI Output Index, that maps both the manufacturing and services industry, dipped from 53.8 in February to a six-month low of 52.7 in March. “Digging deeper into the anecdotal evidence provided by surveyed firms, there are concerns about delayed payment from clients and a challenging economic situation,” Lima said. Firms commented that successful marketing efforts and greater demand underpinned the rise in sales, but some noted that an increasingly competitive environment acted as a brake on growth. On the prices front, input cost inflation eased, while an acceleration was seen for services charges. Experts believe the Reserve Bank of India may adopt an accommodative policy stance in the first bi-monthly policy review meet for this fiscal.last_img read more

El Khalfi The Govt Takes Full Political Responsibility For July

Rabat – Government spokesman Moustapha El Khalfi said during a press conference today that though the constitution grants the right to demonstrate, the July 20 march has “no authorization from the government, there is rather a ban.”El Khalfi during a press conference following the end of the government council meeting held Thursday in Rabat that “the right to demonstrate is constitutionally guaranteed and practiced within the framework of the law,” but that “the July 20 march in Al Hoceima is prohibited by the state,” without indicating why.“The government bears full political responsibility for this ban,” said El Khalfi. “We [the government] are concerned with ensuring stability in the country.” The government spokesperson said that the government considers the demands of the Rif to be legitimate. He indicated that the state is working on speeding up the development projects in the region, as instructed by King Mohammed VI.El Khalfi saidthat the government is experiencing difficulties in the management of Al Hoceima projects, explaining that “tourism is at stake,” but he insisted that there should be “a collective awareness to  provide a calm atmosphere.”The spokesman added that “there is a response to the legitimate demands of the Rif, and that state is keen to move towards pacifism,” giving as an example thatthe number of public forces in the city has been“reduced.”“The time has come to take firm positions guaranteed by law,” he said, concluding that the freedom to demonstrate has become “part of Moroccan life.” read more

TSX finishes flat as energy and metals stocks fall oil prices unchanged

TORONTO — It was an especially flat day for Canada’s main stock index Friday, with the energy sector among major decliners despite oil prices continuing to hover around the US$50 mark.The S&P/TSX composite index squeaked out 0.31 of a point to advance to 15,173.03, as the October crude contract remained unchanged at US$49.89 per barrel.“We were hoping we’d see a bottom in energy stocks and they’d start acting better — that’s what the Canadian market needs because that’s the way the Canadian market is constructed,” said Norman Levine, managing director of Portfolio Management Corp.“But they’re not behaving as well as the commodity.”Levine attributed some of energy stocks’ woes to the rising loonie and a weakening greenback — “that’s because they sell energy for the most part in U.S. dollars,” he explained.The Canadian dollar was trading at an average price of 82.09 US, up 0.11 of a U.S. cent.South of the border, it was another day of meagre gains and record highs for two of New York’s major indexes.The Dow Jones industrial average advanced 64.86 points to 22,268.34 on Friday, its fourth straight day of record highs, while the S&P 500 index was up 4.61 points to 2,500.23, its fourth day of reaching a new high since Monday.Meanwhile, the Nasdaq composite index gained 19.39 points to 6,448.47.Elsewhere in commodities, the December gold contract declined $4.10 at US$1,325.20 an ounce.The October natural gas contract was down five cents to US$3.02 per mmBTU and the December copper contract gave back a penny at US$2.95 a pound.Follow @DaveHTO on Twitter. read more

Nintendo ending Japan sales of Wii U shifting to Switch

Nintendo says it will show it to reporters in Japan on Jan. 13.The Japanese video game manufacturer behind the Super Mario and Pokemon franchises has already shipped Wii U machines for U.S. sales through March, company spokesman Kenichiro Matsuura said Friday.Kyoto-based Nintendo has scored success with the remake of its 1980s FamiCom machine, called NES Classic Edition, which goes on sale Friday in the U.S. for $59.99.Japanese have been snatching it up since it went on sale Thursday.Much smaller than the original machine, it comes packed with popular 30 game software titles, such as “Donkey Kong,” ”The Legend of Zelda” and “Super Mario Brothers.”Another recent hit the company has scored is “Pokemon Go,” an augmented reality game that can be played on smartphones.Nintendo’s earnings have suffered from lagging sales of the Wii U, as well as its 3DS handheld.After years of scoffing at the threat from smartphones, Nintendo did an about-face last year and entered that sector. Pokemon Go is the first big success for Nintendo since that decision, underlining the company’s potential.___Follow Yuri Kageyama on Twitter at https://twitter.com/yurikageyamaHer work can be found at http://bigstory.ap.org/content/yuri-kageyama Nintendo ending Japan sales of Wii U, shifting to Switch read more

SSAB introduces Hardox 500 Tuf – a new generation wear plate

first_imgSSAB says its new Hardox® 500 Tuf has “exceptional strength, hardness and toughness in one in the same wear plate. It is new and is ready for wear. Hardox 500 Tuf combines the best properties from Hardox® 450 and 500 grades. The result is a wear plate with no real competition in the market. “It is tough enough to perform as a structural material in heavy-duty tipper bodies and buckets. Its performance is also proven in cold climates and freezing conditions. Superior wear and dent resistance allow for increased service life and the ability to withstand heavy impact.”Typical working conditions include loading and unloading of heavy and sharp rocks in quarries and mines, handling large and heavy steel scrap, and in demolition when pieces of concrete with rebar are loaded or dropped into tippers. Hardox® 500 Tuf has gone through rigorous pre-launch testing in real life applications. Twice the service life possible: •85-100% longer estimated service life compared to Hardox 400 (SSAB’s WearCalc and TippCalc calculations based on sliding wear with granite)•Guaranteed impact energy of 27 J at -20°C •Narrow Brinell hardness window of 475-505 HBW •Highly dent and crack resistant when hit by sharp and heavy objects.last_img read more

Chimps are people too US court told

first_imgWALKING, TALKING CHIMPANZEES may be TV comedy gold but now three courts in New York are being asked to recognize four chimps as “legal persons” with fundamental rights.The move would allow the animals to be released into sanctuaries where they could live out the reminder of their days in freedom, says the Nonhuman Rights Project, which is  behind the initiative.On Monday it petitioned a court in Fulton County Court, New York State, in the name of Tommy, a chimpanzee held captive in a cage at a used trailer lot in nearby Gloversville.Today it did the same for Kiko, a 26-year-old chimpanzee who is deaf and living in a private home in Niagara Falls.And on Thursday the group will lodge a similar petition on behalf of Hercules and Leo, who are owned by a research centre and used in locomotion experiments on Long Island.“The lawsuits ask the judge to grant the chimpanzees the right to bodily liberty and to order that they be moved to a sanctuary,” the organization said in a statement.There the animals can live out their days in an environment as close to the wild as is possible in North America, it added.The challenge is based on the principle of habeas corpus, which the petitioners said was used in New York and allowed slaves to challenge their status and establish their right to freedom.“Our legal petitions and memoranda, along with affidavits from some of the world’s most respected scientists, lay out a clear case as to why these cognitively complex, autonomous beings have the basic legal right to not be imprisoned,” the statement added.The courts can decide whether or not to take up the petitions but if they refuse the organization has the right of appeal.The Nonhuman Rights Project works to change the common law status of at least some animals to “persons” who possess fundamental rights such as bodily integrity and bodily liberty.- © AFP 2013Read: Column: Raising animals for food contributes to climate changeAlso: Measles-style virus blamed for hundreds of dolphin deaths since Julylast_img read more

Carte didentité biométrique le décret dapplication publié en avril

New York Magazine to Build Out Video Content

first_imgThe idea of curated video content is an emerging one. “That video can be sourced, and appropriate video published from both user submissions and the wider Web is one that is taking hold quickly for publishers across the Web,” said Magnify.net CEO Steven Rosenbaum. Rosenbaum noted one current client, Reader’s Digest’s Taste of Home, provides 85 to 90 percent of its video content from outside sources.For Paul Sweeting, editor at Reed Business Information’s Content Agenda, there are “certain sources that we know produce a lot of videos that work for us, such as TechTicker and blip.tv, so we tend to draw on those a lot,” he told FOLIO:. “We also group videos under specific topic areas to make them easier to find.”It also helps with the problem of advertisers shying away from user generated content. “Ad agencies we’ve spoken with say, ‘We don’t want to advertise on the same page as unreviewed user generated content,’” Rosenbaum said. But with curated video content, they are generally more comfortable doing so.While Magnify declined to reveal the cost of the platform, Rosenbaum said that in all cases publishers are paying significantly below $10 per thousand pages. Magnify.net is expected to announce tomorrow a partnership with New York magazine’s nymag.com to build and deploy a Web 2.0 video service. Magnify will build a custom video player and provide encoding, discovery and “curation.”The platform allows publishers to integrate user-generated video, their own video or video from alternate sources—and build a large collection of video content without the cost of producing all original video. Nymag.com has already made significant in-house investments in video (video.nymag.com). (It is currently served by platform provider The Feedroom in a partnership will expire in March.)The partnership with Magnify will start April 1.“The Magnify platform offers all the key player customization and video content management features we need for our own video production, plus the ability to aggregate and curate video from around the Web that fits our brand and our users’ interests,” said Michael Silberman, general manger of digital media for New York Media, New York Magazine’s parent company. “Magnify will give our users and our advertisers a great new video experience.”last_img read more

A bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi said: “Let a Muslim woman come and challenge it. Then we will consider.” The court was hearing a petition filed by Swamy Dethathreya Sai Swaroop Nath, the Kerala President of Akhila Bharatha Hindu Mahasabha, challenging a Kerala High Court order dismissing his plea.

Advertise With Us It had also noted that there was no averment in the petition that any of the rights of Muslim women are violated. “The averments in the writ petition do not suggest that the petitioner is a person who should be ordinarily concerned with the rituals and practices of the Islamic religion and, in particular, the alleged denial of entry to Muslim women in masjids.last_img read more

Ways to Get More From FleetManagement Software

first_img 4 min read Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. June 28, 2013center_img Indianapolis Fruit truck drivers used to leave their trucks running while they unloaded their produce shipments at grocery stores and warehouses. That is, until the company installed fleet management software two years ago to reduce inefficiencies. Thanks to the software, the company discovered that excessive truck idling contributed to an excessive fuel bill. After requiring drivers to turn off their trucks when making a delivery and monitoring driver compliance, the Indianapolis-based company reduced idling by 75 percent and saved 6 percent annually in fuel costs.Fleet management software is a technology that allows companies to gain visibility into their fleet, using technologies such as GPS and telematics, to measure metrics such as idling times, routes driven and arrivals and departures. But to get the most out of the tool, companies must integrate its use and data into everyday business processes. Says Phillip Russo, executive director of NAFA Fleet Management Association, “fleets that choose to optimize the use of such technology can make better decisions on the data they have.”To get more out of your fleet management software, here are five tips that can help make a difference in your bottom line:1. Use all of the features available to increase productivity. As your business needs evolve, be sure to strateglically review all features in the tool at least twice a year to maximize your investment in the software, says John Kiraly, client informations systems manager at ARI, a fleet management company. Work with your provider to learn about updates and to better match the tool to your needs.Observing staff and drivers using the software can reveal if staffers need refreshers on helpful features, such as automated email distribution lists so there’s no need to manually copy and paste addresses, says Kiraly. Features such as graphing and charting are commonly overlooked and can instantly help you and your staff review metrics such as costs and even vehicle service trends.2. Never stop training staffers. Kiraly recommends that companies continually educate drivers and managers on the fleet management software’s capabilities to make sure it is being used to its fullest potential, and used for both strategic decision making and tactical operations. Many fleet management software companies offer training options, such as online video modules on topics such as safety, navigation and reporting techniques. Schedule refreshers for staff, at least annually. Be sure to include software training as part of new hire training as well. Explain how data collected by the software inform how your business is run and can help save the company time, money and hassle. Educating your team on how the software’s data inform your company’s policies can help ensure buy-in.3. Reduce travel delays by broadcasting alerts to drivers. Some fleet tracking software systems allow companies to send broadcast messages directly to the GPS unit in the driver’s truck. Earlier this year, Indianapolis Fruit managers learned that roads had flooded in Illinois after monitoring the Illinois Department of Transportation web site, says Jay Blackburn, the firm’s manager of logistics. The managers sent broadcast messages through its fleet-tracking software alerting drivers in that area of bridge closures. This prevented at least two hours of delays each day in several routes over the two weeks of flooding without requiring staffers to call each driver. The rerouting made it possible for some drivers to make it home each night, reducing the need for layover pay and expenses.4. Find the quickest routes. Certain kinds of fleet management software can help a company optimize its routes and logistics, which can help determine more efficient routes, considering mileage and traffic conditions. You’ll likely uncover surprising inefficiencies that can help you prevent drivers from backtracking or driving out of their way unnecessarily. Russo says some large national shippers design routes so that their drivers make as few left hand turns as possible, to save on fuel waiting and help prevent accidents. Make sure to review your routes on an ongoing basis to take account of construction changes such as roundabouts, stop lights or additional traffic lanes.5. Better manage delays and resources. By monitoring your fleet, you can more easily switch gears when problems occur. Indianapolis Fruit monitors the location of all trucks using its fleet management software. If a truck is running behind schedule, the company can more quickly adjust routes, shift drivers or call customers to reschedule deliveries. Quick thinking and communication helps customers, says Blackburn, who might otherwise staff up for a truck that doesn’t arrive.last_img read more
