Mertesacker is the new Arsenal skipper but many fans have suggested alternatives

first_img Per Mertesacker is the new Arsenal captain 1 Arsenal have named Per Mertesacker as the new captain, someone who won’t be able to play for the club for a while due to injury.However, manager Arsene Wenger thinks the defender is the ‘natural’ choice to replace Mikel Arteta as skipper.“Per is a very respected figure in the dressing room, is loved as well and is also a very demanding figure. I think it is absolutely natural to be [him],” Wenger told the Arsenal website.In the defender’s absence, though, the boss said his experienced players like Santi Cazorla, Laurent Koscielny and Petr Cech will fill in.Some Gooners think the club should have just given the armband to one of those players in the first place and also threw Aaron Ramsey’s name into the frame.last_img read more

Editor’s Pick: Six Reasons to Stick with Your Startup

first_imgRelated Posts Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Tags:#web richard macmanus Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic…center_img We’re starting a new feature on ReadWriteWeb, called ‘Editor’s Picks.’ As founding editor of the site, every weekend I’ll pick out 2-3 posts from the past week which I thought were particularly good and worth highlighting. We’ll start with a post by Jolie O’Dell in our ReadWriteStart channel, which is a subsite devoted to early stage startups and geared towards entrepreneurs. Jolie wrote an inspirational post entitled Six Reasons to Stick with Your Startup: Survival Stories from the Trenches. You can click on the previous link to read the whole post, which I encourage you to do. I’ve also pasted a few highlights below…Jolie wrote:Starting a new tech company is a labor of love. Particularly in the beginning, when funds are low, expectations are high, and the product is still a twinkle in the developer’s eye, stressful situations under external pressures can lead to pull-the-plug moments. When we interviewed Pandora founder Tim Westergren last week, he shared his personal brush with startup death: In 2007, it seemed that the music-streaming site would have to declare bankruptcy and close shop. Pandora’s success is one reason to stick with your own startup. Here are six more.[…]Thirty-Seven Cents and a Heart Full of Hope AdrenalineGrocio founder Gerald Buckley went so far as to share the exact dollar amount of his worst fears realized:“I was $0.37 away from closing it up. Literally, that was all I had left in the bank account. There wasn’t enough to pay next month’s legal bills.”However, a dramatic turn of events saved him and his startup at the last minute. “In mid-November, Grocio won top prize in a local business model competition sponsored by the City of Tulsa and a local bank. That put $30K in the bank (non-equity, non-debt). Then the state of Oklahoma awarded us $100K matching funds (again, non-equity, non-debt). Money became less an issue and allowed us to focus on execution.”Although the economy began changing the equation once again last fall, Buckley encourages other startups, “I’m going to have the startup bug all my life, I think. NEVER give up if you really believe!”Read the full post… A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Marketlast_img read more

Cloud Storage for Social Media: Twitter Backup

first_imgA Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Why backup your email? from BackupMy. Net on Vimeo.BackupMy.Net is a service that allows individuals to back up their tweets, email accounts, blogs and photos. Rather than having to install or configure files for backup, the Austin-based service offers users the chance to store their online data in the cloud. As illustrated by their above email service video, Backupmy.Net may be invaluable in protecting users from accidental deletions, service suspension and outages. While RWW would never suggest you store your passwords in your emails, there is some merit to the service. The blogging and email backup service is particularly useful when you’re working with clients who are less than tech-savvy and prone to deleting their files. Similar cloud-based services include Lifestream Backup, Mozy and Memopal. As for the Twitter back up service, BackupMyTweets is fast to index files and offers users the chance to download their backed up tweets in HTML, JSON or XML format. Nevertheless, one of our biggest complaints with this service is that it auto-tweets a message to your friends upon joining. Love it or leave it, at least Spymaster offers you in-game points to pimp its service to your friends. If BackupMyTweets allowed users to choose to tweet about the service in exchange for discounts on premium offers, the Twitter message might not feel like such an intrusion. Once they overcome the automated Twitter spam issue, the service as a whole will likely prove a useful tool for those looking to store 3rd party hosted materials. Tags:#storage#web Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… dana oshiro Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting There are moments in life when the universe decides to play a cruel joke on you and just as your company’s files are being transfered to a new data center, a truck driver rams into a power transformer and cuts power to the server rack that is meant to be receiving your precious files. And after that, your other back up gets wiped off its server by an over-zealous system administrator. And then after that, you’re helping your CEO write an apologetic message to members. That “hypothetical” story is meant to illustrate the point that backup in multiple locations (via cloud or otherwise) is important.

How to Connect an Office Building to an Activity Stream

first_imgLeach used Chatter to monitor the activity in the Hackathon room at the the Cloudforce event. Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Related Posts Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Chatter Bot is an example of how almost anything can be connected to the Internet. There are any number of examples of how this is evolving. Security is one obvious application. But there are any number of possibilities for how sensors may someday interact with activity streams. alex williams A diagram by Leach showing how the service connects to Chatter:center_img 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Tags:#cloud#cloud computing#saas In the past few weeks, we’ve touched on a few examples of how events within applications are surfaced in activity streams.But it’s not just applications that can communicate. A developer from Portland, Or. is providing a glimpse of how activity streams can be connected with sensors to keep track of activities in an office buildings.Mike Leach developed Chatter Bot to show how activity streams can be used to notify people about what is happening in a building.Last week, he entered Chatter Bot in the Chatter Developer Challenge at the Cloudfoce event. He won the grand prize. The service connects a light and motion sensor to a microcontroller that has an Ethernet connection. The activity detected by the sensor gets pushed to the cloud through the microcontroller. When someone enters a room, Chatter Bot notifies the activity stream of the movement. Leach writes that it costs about $80 per room to install the system. According to his web site, Leach used the following components to make Chatter Bot: * Arduino board with motion and light sensors (C/C++)* Proxy Service (Java Environment)* Salesforce Sites HTTP Listener (Visualforce/Apex)* Facility Management App ( database and web forms)It’s a simple bit of components.

Pappu Yadav hits out at Tejashwi Yadav

first_imgIn an all-out attack on Rashtriya Janata Dal leader Tejashwi Yadav, independent MP Pappu Yadav, who is angling for two seats in the RJD-Congress mahagathbandhan in Bihar for the upcoming general election, said that a person who has never gone through the rough and tumble of politics should not be allowed to dictate terms.“Will a person who has been parachuted to the top post, who has never seen a street fight, who does not know geography or social sciences dictate on who should get how many seats,”Mr. Pappu Yadav told The Hindu.Amid reports that Mr. Pappu Yadav may join the Congress ahead of the Lok Sabha polls, the RJD has made its reservations amply clear.Mr. Pappu Yadav was expelled from the RJD in 2015. He claimed that he was thrown out of the party to clear the path for Mr. Tejashwi Yadav’s elevation to the top post. Mr. PappuYadav’s wife Ranjeet Ranjan is a Congress MP from Supaul constituency.“I am ready to fight [in the Lok Sabha polls] all by myself on five seats in the State. But today is not the time for ego. I spoke to [Congress president] Rahul Gandhi and made my position clear that I need two seats —Madhepura and Purnea. He has assured me of his support,” Mr.Pappu Yadav said.Criticising Mr. Tejashwi Yadav’s recent tour to Lucknow to support the Bahujan Samaj Party-Samajwadi Party alliance and later joining the Opposition rally organised by West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee in Kolkata, he said that the RJD leader can’t be the kingmaker. “One day he is clicked touching Mayawati’s feet, the next day he is supporting prime ministerial ambitions of Mamata Banerjee. Who is he to play the kingmaker,” Mr. Pappu Yadav asked.He also slammed Mr. Tejashwi Yadav’s recent statement that the Congress should show generosity and leave more seats for regional players. “The Congress has helped his party and family every time. And now he seeks to show the Congress its place. If he is so confident then why doesn’t the RJD fight on its own,” he asked.He made it clear that his alliance will be with the Congress and not the RJD and even if the grand alliance fails to make space for him, he will contest from Madhepura and Purnea. “My politics is dictated by the people and not by any party,” he added.More troubleHis assertion spells more trouble for the mahagathbandhan in Bihar where around half-a-dozen parties are already seeking their share in the 40 Lok Sabha seats. The RJD does not want to spare more than 12 seats for the allies.last_img read more

2012 World T20 will have 12 teams as last year

first_imgThe International Cricket Council (ICC) will stick with a 12-team format for the World Twenty20 championship despite complaints from the associate members and will push to ensure all national boards hold free and open elections before the next annual meeting.ICC chief executive Haroon Lorgat on Thursday said a scaled back T20 championship format was necessary in 2012 for “balance” after cricket’s international governing body rescinded its earlier decision to reduce the size of the next 50-over World Cup.During the five-day annual conference in Hong Kong, the ICC reversed its decision to limit the 2015 World Cup to only the 10 full members and reinstated the 14-team format used at this year’s event won by India.But in turn, it cut back numbers at next year’s World Twenty20 in Sri Lanka from a planned 16 to 12, meaning only two associates will qualify. The 50- over World Cup will be trimmed to 10 teams in 2019.”We had to take this decision to make sure we retained the balance between the 2015 World Cup and the 2012 World Twenty20,” Lorgat said. The duration of the World Cup tournament has been heavily criticised but the decision to overhaul the system and cut the number of participating teams was met with strong opposition from the secondtier countries.Now, the Associate members have vowed to continue fighting for more participation in the shortest form of the international game. “The associates have resolved to press the ICC for more places at the 2012 ICC World Twenty20. We are unhappy.They give with one hand and take from the other,” said John Cribbin, Hong Kong Cricket Association secretary, who represents the associate members on the ICC chief executives committee.advertisement”We will challenge that decision, we won’t sit back,” added Cassim Suleiman, chief executive of the Africa Cricket Association.”It’s about giving opportunity to everyone and globalising the game.”Among the other decisions taken at the annual conference: the 2019 World Cup will be scaled back to 10 teams with the top eight places awarded to the top-ranked teams and the last two places going to qualifiers; the Umpire Decision Review System (DRS) will be mandatory in all Tests and limitedovers internationale, with some modifications to the existing usage.last_img read more
