Klopp on the evolution of Worldclass Salah


first_imgJürgen Klopp believes Mohamed Salah’s game has improved tremendously as he’s adapted to playing in a slightly different position for Liverpool this season.Salah has notched in 14 goals this season and remains the club’s top scorer with the latest coming against Wolves.The Egyptian forward played as a lone striker at Molineux where he scored and assisted Virgil van Dijk’s second-half goal.“It’s good,” Klopp told reporters at Melwood on Monday morning, when asked about the Egyptian’s development. “He had to adapt a bit to the slightly different positions; it’s not that much different, but it is different from time to time.divock origi, liverpoolReport: Origi cause Klopp injury concerns George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Divock Origi injury in today’s game against Newcastle is a cause for concern for Jurgen Klopp.Perhaps with one eye on Tuesday’s trip to Italy…“We need him as a link-up player as well and that’s a very important part of our game, but he is still with the desire and with his speed. His speed in the first few yards is just impressive. He is a very important part of our finishing situation in general, how we prepare them, how we come into the situations.“Of course, he is young enough to involve a lot more things in his style of play. It is not just speed, it is not just finishing, it is between the lines, there are a lot of things, there is keeping the ball, but you need your body for that. That was the only problem Mo had a little bit at the beginning of the season, a part of his body was not perfect.“If you work in an office and your shoulder is not 100 percent, if it is not your writing hand then it should be OK, but if you are a professional football player in this moment it just keeps 10 or 15 percent away.“He is a world-class player, but we all knew we had to wait for the moment when everything is fine – that is already a few weeks ago and so it’s all good.”last_img read more


Theres now an app in case you want to um analyze your


first_img Now playing: Watch this: 0 1:59 You decide: Is the app cheesy? Or a gas? (Excuse us.) Baskoro Lanjar Prasetyo/Getty Images They say there’s an app for everything. Now there really is. A new app has now been released called Fartr, and it’s exactly what you’re thinking. The program lets you record, analyze and share your farts. Fartr cuts through the old taboos and calls itself the “official app of the body positive movement.”All you need to do is hold anywhere on the screen and, well, pass gas (preferably away from your loved ones or strangers) to make a recording. Fartr interprets the audio with a special algorithm and analyzes your flatulence based on volume, length, pitch and rhythm. The app will also provide a unique description of the “sound.” Fartr might describe it like a tuba, a flute or “two farts holding hands,” according to the app’s description. The fun doesn’t stop there. Next, you’ll get your Fartr score, which can be shared by way of text, email or social media if you’re particularly proud or competitive. Post a comment Share your voicecenter_img Tags “At Fartr, we believe flatulence can be beautiful and unique, and we have built an app to capture that,” the company said in a release on Thursday.It’s $2 to take part in this potty humor, but a percentage of the proceeds are donated to causes that support Crohn’s and Colitis research, the release said.

Amazon Prime Air gets more planes to boost oneday shipping to you


first_img 50 surprising things people are buying on Amazon right now 50 Photos Tags Share your voice 0 Amazon’s drones and robots want to take over your deliveries In April, Amazon said it was spending $800 million this quarter to bolster its shipping infrastructure to support the change. Last month, CEO Jeff Bezos attended a groundbreaking ceremony for Amazon’s new $1.5 billion air transportation hub in Hebron, Kentucky. Amazon has also built out a network of 10,000 truck trailers.Still, this work has come with new challenges for the company. Pilots working for Prime Air have regularly complained about poor pay and lousy working conditions. Also, FedEx this month decided not to renew its Express air shipping contract with Amazon, a move widely seen as a reaction to Amazon expanding its own shipping network. 1:32 Post a comment Before that Amazon Prime shipment gets to you, it’ll probably hitch a ride in a plane like this one. Amazon Amazon on Tuesday said it agreed to lease 15 more Boeing cargo planes from GE Capital Aviation Services, helping the e-commerce titan continue growing its air fleet so it can speed up Prime deliveries.The 15 Boeing 737-800 planes are in addition to the five planes Amazon already agreed to lease from GECAS earlier this year. The company has 42 planes flying today, and by 2021 it will operate 70 planes.Amazon expanded its fleet as part of its expensive effort to transition its Prime two-day shipping program to one day in the US. That work is already resulting in packages arriving earlier at Prime customers’ doorsteps and may help Amazon maintain its competitive edge against rivals like Walmart.

MS Dhonis number 7 jersey to be retired Indian players might not


first_imgIn the upcoming Test championship, players will sport their numbers and name on the back of their white shirt. However, when it comes to the Indian team, it will not see two numbers – 10 and 7. While number 10, which is Sachin Tendulkar’s jersey, has been unofficially retired by the BCCI, MS Dhoni’s number 7 jersey might also not be opted for by the players.It is now learnt that most of the Indian players will opt for their limited-overs jersey numbers.”Virat is expected to wear 18 while Rohit wears 45. Most of the players will wear their respective ODI and T20 numbers. Since MS is no longer playing Test cricket, jersey No.7 is available but there is very little chance that any of the players will wear it,” a senior BCCI official told PTI on condition of anonymity.’BCCI’s gesture to pay tribute to Dhoni’ MS DhoniHannah Peters/Getty Images”People relate jersey No 7 with MS. The consignment of numbered jerseys will only arrive in the Caribbean only after ODI series,” he further added.It should be mentioned here, that a jersey cannot be officially retired, but the BCCI could opt for a move which pays respect to a player of MS Dhoni’s stature in Indian cricket. As far as his international career is concerned, the former Indian captain is not part of India’s limited-overs squads for the West Indies tour. There are speculations over his retirement, but statements by few BCCI officials have suggested that the wicket-keeper is not yet keen to move on.Former Indian captain Mohammad Azharuddin too said that communication between the selectors and Dhoni will be vital as he enters the final lap of his career.”About big player, the player is also taken into confidence and spoken to. I feel some decision will come. Otherwise, people will keep writing that (he) should retire, not retire. Because, no statement has come from Dhoni,” Azhar said. File photo of MS DhoniSydney Seshibedi/Gallo Images/Getty ImagesHe also said that if the wicket-keeper batsman is fit and wants to continue playing, he should be backed to come good.”My opinion is that if he is fit and playing well, he should play. If he is fit and performance is good, he can play. Sometimes what happens is, interest is lost after playing so much cricket. If his interest is still 100 per cent, I feel, he is good player and he should play,” he further added.Even as the Indian team travels to West Indies, Dhoni has opted to train with the Territorial Army battalion of the parachute regiment and this request has been approved by Indian Army chief Bipin Rawat.last_img read more


NOAB against any law that hinders free speech press


first_imgThe Newspaper Owners’ Association of Bangladesh (NOAB) has urged the government not to go for any law that appears as barriers to freedom of expression and freedom of press.NOAB also demanded immediate annulment of the ‘controversial’ section 57 of the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Act due to its ‘widespread misuse’.Demanding withdrawal of all the cases filed under the section against journalists, NOAB said interference in freedom of expression is actually an attack on the newspaper industry.NOAB leaders came up with the demands in a resolution adopted after a meeting held at the Daily Prothom Alo office on Saturday, said a press release on Sunday.The Association expressed concern over the inclusion of similar provision like section 57 in the proposed National Online Mass Media Policy and Digital Act.It urged the government not to take any step that goes against the freedom of expression as guaranteed by the Constitution.NOAB also expressed concern over attacks on journalists in various parts of the country and filing of cases with an intention of harassment.The association urged the government to take effective steps to stop such things.last_img read more

Myanmar army uses fake photos to malign Rohingyas Reuters


first_imgA combination of screenshots shows (top) an image taken from Flickr depicting the bodies of Bengalis being retrieved following their massacre in Dhaka in 1971. The same image (bottom) as it appears in the Myanmar army`s recently published book on the Rohingya describing it as the brutal killing of the local ethnic people by Bengalis in Myanmar. Photo: ReutersMyanmar’s army has used a photo of Bangladesh’s liberation war in a new book to cover their ethnic riots in the 1940s, reveals a Reuters exclusive report.The photo of the killing of the Bengalis (Bangladeshis) by the Pakistani forces was claimed to be the image of murder of Buddhists by Rohingya, members of a Muslim minority the Myanmar army refers to as “Bengalis” to imply they are illegal immigrants, according to the report.Reuters’ examination of the photograph shows it was actually taken during the 1971 independence war of Bangladesh, a country that has given shelter to more than one million Rohingyas who fled Myanmar’s ethnic cleansing.Another photo in the book was falsely labeled as depicting Rohingya entering Myanmar from Bangladesh, when in reality it showed migrants leaving the country, Reuters’ investigation found.Such fake photos were “sourced to the military’s “True News” information unit”, reads the Reuters report.In the 117-page “Myanmar Politics and the Tatmadaw: Part I”, the army has tried to establish its own narrative of August 2017 crackdown, when some 700,000 Rohingya fled Rakhine to Bangladesh. Mass killings, rape, and arson were reported later on.The full report of the Reuters, filed with Yongon dateline, is given below:The grainy black-and-white photo, printed in a new book on the Rohingya crisis authored by Myanmar’s army, shows a man standing over two bodies, wielding a farming tool. “Bengalis killed local ethnics brutally”, reads the caption.The photo appears in a section of the book covering ethnic riots in Myanmar in the 1940s. The text says the image shows Buddhists murdered by Rohingya – members of a Muslim minority the book refers to as “Bengalis” to imply they are illegal immigrants.But a Reuters examination of the photograph shows it was actually taken during Bangladesh’s 1971 independence war, when hundreds of thousands of Bangladeshis were killed by Pakistani troops.A combination of screenshots shows (top) an image taken from the Pulitzer Prize website depicting the migration of Rwandan Hutu refugees in 1996 following violence in Rwanda. The same image (bottom) appears in the Myanmar armyÕs recently published book on the Rohingya, converted to black-and-white, describing the people as Bengalis entering the country following the British colonial occupation of lower Myanmar. Photo: ReutersIt is one of three images that appear in the book, published in July by the army’s department of public relations and psychological warfare, that have been misrepresented as archival pictures from the western state of Rakhine.In fact, Reuters found that two of the photos originally were taken in Bangladesh and Tanzania. A third was falsely labeled as depicting Rohingya entering Myanmar from Bangladesh, when in reality it showed migrants leaving the country.Government spokesman Zaw Htay and a military spokesman could not be reached for comment on the authenticity of the images. U Myo Myint Maung, permanent secretary at the information ministry, declined to comment, saying he had not read the book.The 117-page “Myanmar Politics and the Tatmadaw: Part I” relates the army’s narrative of August last year, when some 700,000 Rohingya fled Rakhine to Bangladesh, according to United Nations agencies, triggering reports of mass killings, rape, and arson. Tatmadaw is the official name of Myanmar’s military.Much of the content is sourced to the military’s “True News” information unit, which since the start of the crisis has distributed news giving the army’s perspective, mostly via Facebook.The book is on sale at bookstores across the commercial capital of Yangon. A member of staff at Innwa, one of the biggest bookshops in the city, said the 50 copies the store ordered had sold out, but there was no plan to order more. “Not many people came looking for it,” said the bookseller, who declined to be named.On Monday, Facebook banned the army chief and other military officials accused of using the platform to “inflame ethnic and religious tensions”. The same day, UN investigators accused Senior General Min Aung Hlaing of overseeing a campaign with “genocidal intent” and recommended he and other senior officials be prosecuted for crimes against humanity.In its new book, the military denies the allegations of abuses, blaming the violence on “Bengali terrorists” it says were intent on carving out a Rohingya state named “Arkistan”.Attacks allegedly by Rohingya militants calling themselves the Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army preceded the military’s crackdown in August 2017 in Rakhine state, in which the UN investigators say 10,000 people may have been killed. The group denies it has separatist aims.The book also seeks to trace the history of the Rohingya – who regard themselves as native to western Myanmar – casting them as interlopers from Bangladesh.A combination of screenshots shows (top) an image taken from Getty Images depicting Rohingya and Bangladeshi migrants, who were trying to flee Myanmar, after their boat was seized by MyanmarÕs navy, near Yangon, in 2015. The same image (bottom) appears in the Myanmar armyÕs recently published book on the Rohingya, flipped and converted to black-and-white, describing Bengalis entering Myanmar. Photo: ReutersIn the introduction to the book the writer, listed as Lieutenant Colonel Kyaw Kyaw Oo, says the text was compiled using “documentary photos” with the aim of “revealing the history of Bengalis”.“It can be found that whenever a political change or an ethnic armed conflict occurred in Myanmar those Bengalis take it as an opportunity,” the book reads, arguing that Muslims took advantage of the uncertainty of Myanmar’s nascent democratic transition to ignite “religious clashes”.Reuters was unable to contact Kyaw Kyaw Oo for comment.Reuters examined some of the photographs using Google Reverse Image Search and TinEye, tools commonly used by news organizations and others to identify images that have previously appeared online. Checks were then made with the previously credited publishers to establish the origins of those images.Of the 80 images in the book, most were recent pictures of army chief Min Aung Hlaing meeting foreign dignitaries or local officials visiting Rakhine. Several were screengrabs from videos posted by Rohingya militant group the Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army.Of eight photos presented as historical images, Reuters found the provenance of three to be faked and was unable to determine the provenance of the five others.One faded black-and-white image shows a crowd of men who appear to be on a long march with their backs bent over. “Bengalis intruded into the country after the British Colonialism occupied the lower part of Myanmar,” the caption reads.The photo is apparently intended to depict Rohingya arriving in Myanmar during the colonial era, which ended in 1948. Reuters determined the picture is in fact a distorted version of a color image taken in 1996 of refugees fleeing the genocide in Rwanda. The photographer, Martha Rial, working for the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, won the Pulitzer Prize.The newspaper did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the use of its photo.Another picture, also printed in black-and-white, shows men aboard a rickety boat. “Bengalis entered Myanmar via the watercourse,” the caption reads.Actually, the original photo depicts Rohingya and Bangladeshi migrants leaving Myanmar in 2015, when tens of thousands fled for Thailand and Malaysia. The original has been rotated and blurred so the photo looks granular. It was sourced from Myanmar’s own information ministry.last_img

Road crashes kill 259 during Eid holidays


first_img15 people have been killed and 12 injured in a road crash on Natore-Pabna highway at Kadamchilan in Baraigram upazila in Natore on Saturday. Photo: Mukter HossainSome 259 people were killed and 960 others injured in 237 road accidents across the country in 13 days during the Eid-ul-Azha vacation, Bangladesh Jatri Kalyan Samity, a passengers’ welfare platform, said on Friday, reports UNB.The road crashes took place on different national and regional highways from 16 August to 28 August, according to a report prepared by the platform. Placing the report during a press conference at the Dhaka Reporters’ Unity in the city, Jatri Kalyan Samity secretary general Mozammel Haque Chowdhury said the number of road crashes saw an increase during this Eid vacation than that of the last year.He, however, said the death toll in the road accidents decreased this year due to strict monitoring by the authorities concerned, including police, Rapid Action Battalion and Bangladesh Road Transport Authority (BRTA), following the recent student demonstrations for road safety.At least 274 people were killed in 205 road accidents while travelling during Eid-ul-Azha last year and the figure was 248 in 193 road accidents during the Eid-ul-Azha journey in 2016, Mozammel said.Apart from road accidents, four people were killed, 68 injured and eight others remained missing in 14 waterway accidents while 15 people were killed and seven others injured in 19 train accidents across the country during the period, he said.“We’ve prepared the statistics based on reports published in national and regional newspapers and online news portals in the country,” the Jatri Kalyan Samity secretary general added.last_img read more


Five more beaten to death in India lynching


first_imgMap of IndiaIndian police said Monday they have arrested 23 people after five men were bludgeoned to death by a crazed mob in yet another horrific lynching to rock the country.Local media estimate more than 25 people have been killed in recent months in similar cases sparked by false rumours spread on smartphones of child kidnapping or allegations of thievery or sexual harassment.The latest incident saw eight men set upon in Dhule district, 330 kilometres (205 miles) from India’s financial capital Mumbai in the western state of Maharashtra on Sunday.Police said the attack began after locals spotted one of the eight talking to a child after they disembarked from a bus near the village of Rainpada.“They were confronted by the locals who had gathered at the Sunday market after suspecting them to be child kidnappers,” Dhule police chief M Ramkumar told AFP.Three of them escaped but five were dragged to the village council office and beaten to death with sticks and blunt objects.Police said they identified the alleged attackers from a video shot during the assault. Another dozen suspects were still on the run, they added.Those killed were from Solapur district of the same state but some 450 kilometres away.The current spate of lynchings started in May last year in eastern Jharkhand state after rumours on WhatsApp about child kidnappers led to the lynching of six men.The rumours have since resurfaced, with attacks reported in at least 11 states.The attacks-usually targeting outsiders-have left authorities scrambling to mount an effective response, with awareness campaigns and public alerts having a limited effect.Last week a “rumour buster” official tasked with alerting the public to such hoaxes was lynched by a mob in the remote northeastern state of Tripura.last_img read more


Hulu Adds ABC News Live CBSN to Live TV Lineup EXCLUSIVE


first_imgLess than two weeks ahead of the 2018 U.S. midterm elections, Hulu is bringing ABC News Live and CBS News’ CBSN — two made-for-the-internet, 24-hour news channels — to its over-the-top live TV service.Starting Thursday (Oct. 26), Hulu With Live TV subscribers will be able to tune to three news streaming channels: ABC News Live, CBSN and Cheddar, the startup news network that joined the lineup this spring. The $40-per-month package also includes traditional cable news nets CNBC, CNN, CNN International, Fox News Channel, Fox Business Network, and HLN.For Hulu, ABC News Live and CBSN — both of which are available to watch for free on other platforms — let it plug in name-brand news programming essentially for no cost. The news orgs will expand their reach by getting in front of Hulu’s skinny-bundle user base, which last month hit 1 million subscribers. Popular on Variety “They’re a major player in the OTT space,” said Colby Smith, ABC News’ senior VP of content and partnerships. “We ultimately want [ABC News Live] to be ubiquitous – wherever cord-cutters and young audiences are.”ABC News Live debuted on the Roku Channel in May, and has since expanded to Facebook Watch (a deal under which ABC News is receiving funding from the social platform). It’s also on ABC’s owned-and-operated properties, including ABCNews.com, mobile apps, and apps for Apple TV and Amazon Fire TV.The focus for ABC News Live is on unedited live coverage, rather than on headline-roundup shows delivered by newsreaders sitting behind a desk or pre-produced shows (although it does mix in such conventional formats). Contributions come from all 1,300 staffers of ABC News around the world.“We feel there’s a large, young audience disenfranchised with the cable-news format,” Smith said. “We’re trying to do something no one else is doing – it’s more live, in-the-field and raw, showing how news is gathered.”On average, viewers who actively seek out ABC News Live now spend three hours per week watching the service, according to Smith. The audience “skews decades younger than TV,” said Smith, with a median age of under 40. ABC News Live is on track to soon stream over 1 million hours per week.For now, ABC News Live doesn’t carry any advertising. Currently, ad breaks are populated by network promos. ABC News is aiming to start enabling dynamic ad insertion on the live-streaming service before the end of 2018, Smith said.Disney, which owns ABC, is one of Hulu’s parent companies and is set to take over majority control of Hulu once its deal for 20th Century Fox assets closes. But according to Smith, the shared Disney parentage had no bearing on the Hulu distribution deal for ABC News Live: “We’ve been talking to Hulu for years,” he said.CBS News’ CBSN, launched in 2014, joins Hulu With Live TV under an existing agreement between Hulu and CBS Corp. that brought CBS, CBS Sports Network and Pop to the OTT television service.CBSN delivers live news coverage and reporting from CBS News’ journalists worldwide, and has aired 25 original long-form documentaries to date. CBSN also recently launched CBSN AM, its first live daily programming in the 7-8 a.m. ET hour. In addition to Hulu, CBSN is available on CBSNews.com and the CBS News apps for mobile and connected-TV devices, as well as the CBS All Access subscription service.“This is an important step in our ongoing strategy of expanding distribution of CBSN, now available on multiple [internet pay-TV services] as well as our CBS News digital platforms,” Christy Tanner, EVP and GM, CBS News Digital, said in a prepared statement.Launched in May 2017, Hulu With Live TV includes live and on-demand programming from more than 50 sports, news, entertainment and kids’ channels, as well as access to more than 75,000 episodes in Hulu’s VOD library. The lineup includes ABC, NBC, CBS, and Fox locals (in most markets) and national cable networks including ESPN, Fox Sports, TBS, TNT, CNN, CNBC, Fox News, Bravo, A&E, the CW and Telemundo.Meanwhile, Hulu is mulling the introduction of lower-cost live TV bundles that would eliminate linear feeds of entertainment cable networks to reduce programming costs and improve margins. The company said it is in talks with programmers on creating skinnier bundles. ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.

Important ancient papyrus seized from looters in Israel


first_img(Phys.org)—Eitan Klein, a representative of the Israel Antiquities Authority, has announced that an important papyrus document dated to 2,700 years ago has been seized from a group of Palestinian looters who reportedly dug it up in a cave in the Judean Desert approximately three years ago. The claim of its authenticity has been challenged, however, by Christopher Rollston (as reported by Live Science) a professor with George Washington University in the U.S.—he contends that the wording on the document suggests it might be a forgery. Credit: Shai Halevi, Israel Antiquities Authority If the document turns out to be authentic, it will be notable for a line that translates from Hebrew as “from the king’s maidservant, from Na’arat, (which was near Jericho)—jars of wine, to Jerusalem.” This sentence would mark the second-oldest reference to Jerusalem—the Bible is the oldest. It would also be important because it suggests the lines were written by a woman from the time of the First Temple (which King Solomon had built in 957BC—but it was destroyed by soldiers working for King Nebuchadnezzar, the Babylonian king, approximately 400 years later), who held an important position in society.Klein outlined the means by which he and his team tracked the looters and eventually caught them in the act of looting a cave. He did not give specifics as to how the scroll was found, but hinted that it might have been purchased after being tracked to an antiquities market somewhere in Jerusalem. The scroll has already been carbon dated, but as Rollston noted, if it were a fake, the forger would have simply obtained a blank scroll from that time period and written on it using the same type of ink used thousands of years ago. In response, Klein has offered to listen to evidence by Rollston, but suggests that he and his team are very nearly certain the papyrus is an authentic document because they have proof that it was dug up by looters from a cave in the Nahal Hever valley—they are not revealing its exact location for fear that other looters will descend on the scene. The papyrus and the lines written on it will no doubt be studied in more detail by other researchers who may or may not come to a consensus on the authenticity of the scroll.

Building a Profitable Wearable Device May Depend on Who You Partner With

Hear from business owners and CEOs who went through a crippling business problem and came out the other side bigger and stronger. Problem Solvers with Jason Feifer Apple scores big in marketing, channel and brand, and has the best chance to take a product mainstream. Just look at how the iPad overtook a decade’s worth of tablet PCs in less than a year.Google’s open Android platform enables a product to be built on top of its code and offers access to Android apps.Microsoft has the best depth sensor, and its operating systems have already proven themselves in a number of products.
