49ers Breida, most starters don’t practice, nor does Packers’ Rodgers

first_imgSANTA CLARA — Matt Breida’s ankle injury forced him Thursday to miss his first 49ers practice this season, and he had so much company from offensive teammates that coach Kyle Shanahan said he’s rarely seen such mass casualties.Shanahan would not rule out Breida from Monday night’s game at Green Bay, however, and is “still keeping fingers crossed” their leading rusher can play. Otherwise, Alfred Morris, who’s platooned with Breida all season, would be in line to start and see an increased …last_img read more

Increased internet access in South Africa

first_img1 July 2015South Africa is forecast to see a massive jump in internet traffic as more people switch to smartphones and other smart devices.This is according to the Cisco Visual Networking Index 2015, which predicts that there will be 27 million internet users in South Africa by 2019, up from just 15 million in 2014. Internet protocol (IP) traffic is also forecast to grow six-fold, representing an annual growth rate of 44%.Cisco said that a significant percentage of that growth would centre on internet video consumption, with South Africans expected to download 43 billion minutes of video content by 2019.“South Africans are well on their way to adopt video and by 2019 the citizens would have streamed 43 billion minutes of video content. This stat highlights that consumers and businesses alike are using rich media clips as they head towards the digital era with the internet of everything,” said Vernon Thaver, the chief technology officer of Cisco South Africa.Mobile video traffic in South Africa is also expected to grow at 73% as people increasingly stream video content to smartphones.Mobile devices and usagePrevious research conducted by other organisations has also explained how important smartphones are to South Africa’s internet landscape.In a study produced by Orange Horizons on the provision of wi-fi in Mitchells Plain and Khayelitsha in Cape Town, 94% of respondents said that their primary means of connecting to the internet was a smartphone.Viewing social media, downloading content and streaming made up the most of the users’ activities, according to the study.Meanwhile, Cisco’s research indicated that by 2019, smartphones would cement their position as the primary internet tool, commanding 30% (57.5 million) of all networked devices, up from 22% last year in South Africa.The demand for video would also drive new internet video services which were expected to account for 78% of all IP traffic, the company said.“Residential, business and mobile consumers continue to have strong demand for advanced video services across all network and device types, making quality, convenience, content/experience and price key success factors,” said the Cisco report.Cisco also predicted that South Africa’s average broadband speed would grow to 10mbps in 2019, up from 3.5mbps, resulting in the correlated growth of machine to machine communications and smart TVs.“We are entering into a very dynamic technological era and the rapid increase in connected devices will benefit a wide range of industries, including manufacturing, transportation, oil and gas, utilities, government, health care, sports and entertainment, education, in terms of increased efficiency, reduced costs, and, most important, improvement of the lives of citizens,” said Thaver.Source: News24Wirelast_img read more

Bodos on hunger strike decline medical help

first_imgOn the third day of their hunger strike to press for a separate State for the community, the Bodos on Sunday said they would not accept any medical aid until the government accepts their long-pending demands.“It has been decided that despite deteriorating health of many protesters, we won’t take any medical help. Both the Centre and the Assam government need to address the Bodo issue immediately,” said a statement issued jointly by the Bodo groups leading the hunger strike.‘Govt apathy’The All Bodo Students’ Union, National Democratic Front of Bodoland (Progressive) and the People Joint Action Committee for Bodoland Movement are together holding the indefinite hunger strike. The groups have alleged that the governments are deliberately staying away from taking up the separate State demand so that the issue dies down.“Since the movement has started, the Centre is playing truant, not conceding the separate State demand for Bodos,” said ABSU president Pramod Bodo.Over 2,000 people participated in the hunger strike in Kokrajhar and other parts of the Bodo Territorial Area Districts, which also include Chirang, Baksha and Udalguri.ShortcomingsThe Bodo groups also threatened economic blockade on the lines of the Manipur economic blockade. According to them, the Bodo Territorial Council — formed to give autonomy to the Bodo people — has several shortcomings in terms of executing the monetary schemes of the central government for their welfare.last_img read more

Chicharito ‘would even play left back’ for West Ham

first_imgPremier League ‘I would even play left back!’ – Chicharito willing to play anywhere for West Ham Goal Last updated 2 years ago 00:49 23/9/2017 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(0) Javier Hernandez Chicharito West Ham United Julian Finney Premier League West Ham United West Ham United v Tottenham Hotspur Tottenham Hotspur Javier Hernández The Mexico international has emphasised his desire to play by indicating that he doesn’t mind where the manager puts him as long as he is involved Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez loves to score goals but doesn’t need them to enjoy playing football, admitting he’d line up wherever he’s needed just to get on the field.The Mexico international completed a move from Bayer Leverkusen to West Ham for a reported €17.8 million fee this summer.Chicharito 8/5 to score v Spurs Article continues below Editors’ Picks ‘I’m getting better’ – Can Man Utd flop Fred save his Old Trafford career? Why Barcelona god Messi will never be worshipped in the same way in Argentina Lyon treble & England heartbreak: The full story behind Lucy Bronze’s dramatic 2019 Liverpool v Man City is now the league’s biggest rivalry and the bitterness is growing Returning to the Premier League for the first time since featuring for Manchester United, Chicharito has scored twice for the Hammers in five games.And while the striker enjoys finding the back of the net, he says he would gladly line up in a position where goals are less likely to come, so long as he got to see the field.“My life doesn’t revolve around goals,” Hernandez told West Ham’s official website. “I like to play football, I like to be on that pitch, if I play left winger, left midfielder, even left back, centre forward, wherever.”The striker further clarified his comments by explaining while goals are enjoyable for everyone, his focus is primarily on improving all aspects of his game in order to help the club succeed.“I like to grow and I like to challenge myself, I like to always push myself to keep on growing, to adapt to any circumstances. I just love to play football,” Chicharito said.“Of course, who wouldn’t like to score a goal? Even the ‘keepers would like it; the goal is the culmination of everything.“But I love playing football, improving in many technical, tactical, mental aspects, whatever. So if I get to score a goal I would be very happy, but not so much if it’s not useful.Chicharito playing surface“It’s all about the group, the player on your left depends on you and you depend on the one on your right, it’s a chain, this is a team sport and you have to be at your best to be able to support your team.”Ahead of West Ham’s London derby with Tottenham on Saturday, Chicharito conceded the match is important. However, he does not believe he will play the game any differently than he would a regular fixture, explaining maximum effort is required throughout the season.“I think derbies are big for everyone and obviously they have a different flavour, especially for the fans,” the 29-year-old added.“I was brought up as a football player that a derby is a special match, a very nice one, but I always try to play as if all matches were like that. We shouldn’t play differently in only one or two matches a year, you have to play like that in all 38 matches in the league“Obviously derbies have a different feeling, I think it’s a bit more about the environment, but I personally always want to play as if every match were my last, as if it were my last chance and give my all, to give back the trust that my coach, my teammates and all the fans had in me.” Check out Goal’s Premier League 2019-20 fantasy football podcast for game tips, debate and rivalries.last_img read more

Multipurpose Shipping Starts 2018 with Optimism

first_imgzoomImage Courtesy: AAL Shipping Multipurpose shipping has started 2018 on a confident footing and is forecast to recover further on rising demand, contracting vessel supply and lessening threats from competing sectors.The multipurpose shipping market, which comprises both breakbulk and project cargo sectors, has struggled over the last few years but conditions are now ripe for recovery, shipping consultancy Drewry said in its latest Multipurpose Forecaster.Dry cargo demand is growing, with a number of drivers reporting improving conditions, whilst the multipurpose fleet is contracting as older, smaller, less heavy lift capable tonnage is weeded out.“This year has started with renewed optimism and it is Drewry’s belief that the market has finally turned that corner,” Susan Oatway, Drewry’s lead analyst for the multipurpose sector, said.“Rate rises are never stratospheric in this sector, but we believe a steady growth of around 2-3% per year is possible over the forecast period.”However, due to the diversity of drivers that supports this sector there are still some concerns that could impact the outlook over the medium term.The simple multipurpose fleet, that is those vessels with lift below 100 tons, has already started to contract at a rate that is affecting the whole fleet. However, Drewry believes that the future is with the project carrier sector, i.e. those vessels with lift greater than 100 tonnes.“Some 80% of all newbuildings over the last five years have heavylift capability, and at least 70% of the orderbook has this capability. The project carrier fleet is growing, but it will be some time before it reverses the decline in the overall multipurpose fleet,” Oatway concluded.last_img read more
