EHF CL: Vive Kielce is still the leader after win over St Petersburg

first_imgEHF CL SUNDAY: Eight matches, derby time in Kielce and Szeged ShareTweetShareShareEmailCommentsIn the 8th round of the Champions League Vive Targi Kielce beat St. Petersburg 30:29. Regardless of all the problems Kielce has, before the match nobody really expected an equal game, let alone a defeat of the leader of Group C. First half seemed to confirm those expectations – after a bit diffident beginning Polish team found its rhythm and took the lead. Half time result was 20:14 and it appeared that all what Polish team could do in the second half was to gain more advantage. First ten minutes of the second half were fine, host team was leading by 9 goals but then Russian team scored 8 goals in a row. Kielce fans could not believe what they saw when six minutes before the final whistle there was a draw 27:27. Nonetheless, Vive players took the lead again and managed to win 2 valuable points. The top scorer for Kielce was Mateusz Jachlewski (6), a left winger who in this match played on the right wing due to Ólafsson‘s indisposition.TEXT: Martyna Usnarska GO EAST: Andreas Wolff to Kielce in 2019?

Bring Your Own Device in EMEA – Part 2 – Finding the Balance

first_imgIn my second blog focusing on Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) in EMEA I’ll be taking a look at the positives and negatives of introducing a BYOD culture into a healthcare organisation. All too often we hear of blanket bans on clinicians and administrators using their personal devices at work, but with the right security protocols in place and enhanced training there is a huge opportunity for BYOD to help solve many of the challenges facing healthcare.Much of the negativity surrounding BYOD occurs because of the resulting impact to both patients (privacy) and healthcare organisations (business/financial) of data breaches in EMEA. While I’d agree that the headline numbers outlined in my first blog are alarming, they do need to be considered in the context of the size of the wider national healthcare systems.A great example I’ve seen of an organisation seeking to operate a more efficient health service through the implementation of BYOD is the Madrid Community Health Department in Spain. Intel and security expert Stack Overflow assessed several mobile operating systems with a view to supporting BYOD for physicians in hospitals within their organisation. I highly recommend you read more about how Madrid Community Health Department is managing mobile with Microsoft Windows-based tablets.The Upside of BYODThere’s no doubt that BYOD is a fantastic enabler in modern healthcare systems. But why? We’ll look at some best practice tips in a later blog but suffice to say here that much of the list below should be underpinned by a robust but flexible BYOD policy, an enhanced level of staff training, and a holistic and multi-layered approach to security.1) Reduces Cost of ITPerhaps the most obvious benefit to healthcare organisations is a reduction in the cost of purchasing IT equipment. Not only that, it’s likely that employees will take greater care of their own devices than they would of a corporate device, thus reducing wastage and replacement costs.2) Upgrade and UpdateProduct refresh rates are likely to be more rapid for personal devices, enabling employees to take advantage of the latest technologies such as enhanced encryption and improved processing power. And with personal devices we also expect individuals to update software/apps more regularly, ensuring that the latest security updates are installed.3) Knowledge & UnderstandingTraining employees on new devices or software can be costly and a significant drain on time, notwithstanding being able to schedule in time with busy clinicians and healthcare administrators. I believe that allowing employees to use their personal everyday device, with which they are familiar, reduces the need for device-level training.  There may still be a requirement to have app-level training but that very much depends on the intuitiveness of the apps/services being used.4) More Mobile WorkforceThe holy grail of a modern healthcare organisation – a truly mobile workforce. My points above all lead to clinicians and administrators being equipped with the latest mobile technology to be able to work anytime and anywhere to deliver a fantastic patient experience.The Downside of BYODAs I’ve mentioned previously, much of the comment around BYOD is negative and very much driven by headline news of medical records lost or stolen, the ensuing privacy ramifications and significant fines for healthcare organisations following a data breach.It would be remiss of me to ignore the flip-side of the BYOD story but I would hasten to add that much of the risk associated with the list below can be mitigated with a multi-layered approach that not only combines multiple technical safeguards but also recognises the need to apply these with a holistic approach including administrative safeguards such as policy, training, audit and compliance, as well as physical safeguards such as locks and secure use, transport and storage.1)  Encourages a laissez-faire approach to securityWe’ve all heard the phrase ‘familiarity breeds contempt’ and there’s a good argument to apply this to BYOD in healthcare. It’s all too easy for employees to use some of the same workarounds used in their personal life when it comes to handling sensitive health data on their personal device. The most obvious example is sharing via the multitude of wireless options available today.2) Unauthorised sharing of informationData held at rest on a personal devices is at a high risk of loss or theft and is consequently also at high risk of unauthorized access or breach. Consumers are increasingly adopting cloud services to store personal information including photos and documents. When a clinician or healthcare administrator is in a pressured working situation with their focus primarily on the care of the patient there is a temptation to use a workaround – the most obvious being the use of a familiar and personal cloud-based file sharing service to transmit data. In most cases this is a breach of BYOD and wider data protection policies, and increases risk to the confidentiality of sensitive healthcare data.3) Loss of DevicesThe loss of a personal mobile device can be distressing for the owner but it’s likely that they’ll simply upgrade or purchase a new model. Loss of personal data is quickly forgotten but loss of healthcare data on a personal device can have far-reaching and costly consequences both for patients whose privacy is compromised and for the healthcare organisation employer of the healthcare worker. An effective BYOD policy should explicitly deal with loss of devices used by healthcare employees and their responsibilities in terms of securing such devices, responsible use, and timely reporting in the event of loss or theft of such devices.4) Integration / CompatibilityI speak regularly with healthcare organisations and I know that IT managers see BYOD as a mixed blessing. On the one hand the cost-savings can be tremendous but on the other they are often left with having to integrate multiple devices and OS into the corporate IT environment. What I often see is a fragmented BYOD policy which excludes certain devices and OS, leaving some employees disgruntled and feeling left out. A side-effect of this is that it can lead to sharing of devices which can compromise audit and compliance controls and also brings us back to point 2 above.These are just some of the positives and negatives around implementing BYOD in a healthcare setting. I firmly sit on the positive side of the fence when it comes to BYOD and here at Intel Security we have solutions to help you overcome the challenges in your organisation, such as Multi-Factor Authentication (MFAOpens in a new window) and SSDs Solid State Drives including in-built encryption which complement the administrative and physical safeguards you use in your holistic approach to managing risk.Don’t forget to check out the great example from the Madrid Community Health Department to see how our work is having a positive impact on healthcare in Spain.

SUV sales keep up momentum in gloom

first_imgDespite falling sales in the automobile sector, domestic manufacturers are upbeat about the growth of the sport utility vehicles (SUVs) segment, which has reported a double-digit rise with fresh demand emerging from both urban and rural markets.According to figures of the Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers (Siam), sales of SUVs increased by 16.4 per cent in the last fiscal. The growth continued to remain bullish in the first quarter of this fiscal year with most companies posting high double-digit growth.”Recently launched models such as Maruti Suzuki Ertiga, Mahindra and Mahindra XUV500 and face-lifted versions of Toyota Innova have done well and received good responses from customers,” Kinjal Shah, analyst with the rating agency Internet Content Rating Agency (Icra), said.Even in the luxury car segment, SUVs remained volume spinners in June for companies such as Audi, which reported an increase of 76 per cent compared to the same month last year.”We had received 500 bookings for Audi Q3 within five days of its launch, of which 200 vehicles have already been delivered. Seeing such a tremendous response, we have opened the next round of booking for 500 units of Audi Q3. Therefore, we expect the same response from our customers,” said Michael Perschke, head, Audi India.This why most auto manufacturers are betting high on the SUVs with more than half-a-dozen launches lined up this year.French carmaker Renault is also coming up with its much-awaited SUV Duster, which is expected to be a game changer. The company had already showcased Duster at the auto expo in January, and sources say that the car will be in the Rs 7.5 lakh-Rs 12 lakh price range. The car will be available in both diesel as well as petrol. The model is very popular in the European market.advertisementBesides, Ford India Pvt Ltd is banking on its soon-to-be-launched EcoSport.”In fact, competition in the SUV segment is expected to intensify even further in view of several models slated to be launched in the current fiscal, including Chevrolet Enjoy, Nissan Evalia, Ashok Leyland Stile, and Mahindra Mini Xylo,” Icra’s Shah pointed out.last_img read more

After Lok Sabha nod, GST Bill up for Rajya Sabha test

first_imgFinance minister Arun JaitleyThe government on Wednesday passed the key economic reform Goods and Services Tax (GST) regime in the Lok Sabha amid a walkout by the Congress. However, the Modi government will face the Opposition hurdle when the legislation will be taken up in Rajya Sabha on Thursday.The Bill was passed in the Lower House where the government has a brute majority, despite the Congress staying away from voting and the AIADMK voting against the legislation.But the government managers are keeping their fingers crossed knowing well that the Opposition might force it to refer the Bill to Select Committee for further consultations in the Upper House.However, the Opposition Trinamool Congress and BJD are supporting the Bill. Parliamentary Affairs Minister M. Venkaiah Naidu and Finance Minister Arun Jaitley are talking to the Opposition parties to enlist their support for the legislation which proposes a uniform tax regime across India. “We hope the Opposition parties would have the same view in the Rajya Sabha. We are talking to the parties,” Naidu said.Congress member M. Veerappa Moily said the party supports the Bill in principle as it was pushed by the previous UPA also. However, Congress wants that some new clauses added by the government should be consulted in a Select Committee of the upper house.The government managed the mandated two-thirds majority to pass the constitutional amendment Bill in the lower house. But carrying it forward in the upper house would be a big challenge where the NDA lacks strength.advertisementThe Constitution Amendment Bill to implement GST, originally mooted by the UPA, was passed by 352 votes against 37 after the government rejected the Opposition demand of referring it to a Standing Committee.Noting the Bill would make India a single market, Jaitley rejected the Opposition demand for referring the Bill to the Standing Committee, saying the panel has already examined various provisions of the new legislation and several of its suggestions have been incorporated. “GST is not a dancing instrument that it will jump from Standing Committee to Standing Committee.”Jaitley said he would compensate states for any revenue loss. “I straightaway concede that 27 per cent (revenue neutral rate) would be very high. We have decided to keep petroleum out, and every state finance minister is not interested in imposing higher taxes on its own people, and neither the Central government,” he said.Jaitley said the proposal to reform the indirect taxes has been pending for the last 12 years and his predecessor P. Chidambaram of the Congress had also mooted it during the UPA rule.Meanwhile, Prime Minister Narendra Modi was not present in the Lok Sabha when it passed the GST bill. Modi’s absence in the Lower House was conspicuous as he has been particular about MPs’ attendance and has often made them explain their absence from the House.last_img read more

2016 SEC Tournament Bracket, Schedule, Analysis

first_imgSEC logo.SEC men’s basketball has felt like a one-horse race for a few years now, but things became much more interesting in 2015-16. Kentucky is still among the league’s elite, of course, and John Calipari’s Wildcats appear to be hitting their stride at the right time heading into post-season play. They didn’t win the regular season, however. A consistent, well-rounded Texas A&M club took home that title, and head into the tournament on a six game winning streak, which includes a ‘W’ against UK. South Carolina, the three seed, has its best team in over a decade, and is set to make its first NCAA Tournament since 2004. LSU has a little forward named Ben Simmons, who you’ve probably heard a bit about. This should be a very fun conference tournament. SEC Tournament ticket information is available here.Here is the full bracket:2016 sec tournament SEC Tournament games will be aired on SEC Network and ESPN.Favorite: Kentuckykentucky logoTexas A&M may have the top seed in the tournament, but Kentucky enters the event as the favorite to win the whole thing. Bovada has the Wildcats at +120 to win the SEC Tournament, while A&M is listed at +375. Kentucky has the top backcourt in the conference, and maybe the entire country. Jamal Murray has proven to be an incredibly dynamic shooting guard, scoring an even 20 points a game from all over the court. The freshman out of Canada is shooting 45-percent from the floor, and 42-percent from three, and he’s incredibly difficult to keep out of the lane. He’s joined by SEC Player of the Year contender Tyler Ulis, one of basketball’s best lead guards. Ulis averages 16.6 points and 7.3 assists per game, and is a fantastic floor general for John Calipari’s ‘Cats. The X-factor for Kentucky is Skal Labissiere. The big man out of Haiti entered the year as a rival to fellow freshman Ben Simmons as the top newcomer to college basketball, but was largely a disappointment this season. However, he’s played two of his best games in the last week. Labissiere chipped in 11 points and eight boards in just 15 minutes in a win over Florida, and looked dominant against Simmons’ LSU Tigers, with 18 points, nine rebounds, and six blocks in 25 minutes in Kentucky’s 94-77 win. If Skal continues to improve, UK will be a difficult out in SEC play, and a menace in the Big Dance.Sleeper: Ole Missole miss logoIf we look beyond the four teams that have byes into the quarterfinals, we’ll take Ole Miss as a potential sleeper. The Rebels can be a bit of a one-man show, but that one man can really fill up a box score. Stefan Moody, Ben Simmons’ choice for the SEC’s best point guard, leads the conference in scoring at 23.1 points per game. He’s a high-flyer, and he drops bombs from beyond the three-point arc. Ole Miss is far from a well-rounded team, but they have a game-breaking guard, and in one-off tournament basketball, a great point guard can absolutely take over, especially when he’s as skilled at scoring as Moody is.last_img read more

The English Premier League Starts Today Heres One Reason To Watch

Beautiful, ain’t it? Americans’ interest in soccer is about three times higher during the World Cup than it usually is, judging by how often they search for the sport on Google. But that isn’t true for other countries. In England, where the English Premier League will kick off its season on Saturday, club play is followed almost as enthusiastically as international competition. The same is true in Spain, Italy, Brazil and Mexico.What accounts for the international appeal of soccer? One factor may be the comparative simplicity of its rulebook. Product designers have long appreciated the value of simplicity, which offers a gentler learning curve and fewer opportunities for mistranslation.I downloaded the FIFA Laws of the Game along with the rulebooks for the NFL, NBA, NHL and Major League Baseball. Then I counted the number of words in each one, excluding indices. This is a simple proxy for the complexity of each sport.Soccer is doing more with less; FIFA’s rulebook has just over 20,000 words. By contrast, the NBA’s has 30,000, MLB’s is close to 50,000, the NHL’s is nearly 60,000 and the NFL’s is 70,000.The correlation between the simplicity of a sport’s rulebook and its global popularity is almost one to one. Soccer, with its simple rulebook, is followed in almost every country. Basketball increasingly is, too. The more complex sports have less global appeal. Baseball is popular in the Americas and Japan but not yet elsewhere. Hockey fans are almost exclusively concentrated in the U.S., Canada, Northern Europe and Russia. American football has few fans outside America itself.Philosophers have also long recognized a connection between simplicity and beauty (indeed, long before soccer came to be known as “The Beautiful Game,” it was known as “The Simplest Game” instead). This June, when I attended a couple of World Cup matches at the Maracanã, in Rio de Janeiro, I was struck by how rich the experience was with so few frills. There was no 60-yard-long Jumbotron — there were hardly any scoreboards. There weren’t many words spoken, on or off the pitch.Soccer can get away with this minimalist presentation because of the simplicity of its rulebook; you don’t need Ed Hochuli to come out and explain the difference between offsides and encroachment and a neutral zone infraction.Instead, when Chile scored against Spain in their Group B match, it sounded something like this (sorry about my shaky camera work): read more

The Warriors Are Making The Cavs Beat Themselves

The Cavs aren’t alone: Golden State’s playoff opponents have shot a combined 34 percent on open and wide-open looks from 3. Attempting to keep pace with the Warriors up and down the court seems to take so much out of teams that making the easy ones isn’t so easy.That shouldn’t be a comforting thought for the Cavs, because slowing the pace isn’t exactly a great alternative. Golden State has the best half-court defense in the league; it gave up just 88.3 points per 100 plays in the regular season, according to Synergy Sports Technology, and has given up 88.1 in the postseason, both No. 1 in the league. There are tactics Cleveland could explore, such as forcing Curry to defend pick-and-rolls on every half-court possession, a technique the Cavs got away from in Game 2, but the Warriors are better prepared for that than they have been in the past.It’s possible that a shift back to Cleveland will help the Cavs recover some of their form, but the team actually shot slightly better on the road than at home on its open looks this season, so it’s not like the Cavs turn on the aimbot once they get back to Quicken Loans Arena.Simple as it sounds, the Cavs probably just have to hope their shooters find a second wind, tired legs or not. Coming into the series, Love had been 35-for-69 (51 percent) on open or wide-open 3s in the playoffs; Smith had been 16-for-36 (44 percent). In the Finals, Love is down to 2-for-9 and Smith is 1-for-2. Even Kyle Korver is shooting just 1-for-5 on these looks, though his playoffs have been more uneven than Smith or Love’s. Eleven Cavaliers are shooting 35 percent or better from 3-point range in the playoffs, but James, Love and Kyrie Irving are the only Cavs who’ve made more than one open or wide-open 3 in the Finals.Cleveland coach Tyronn Lue said Tuesday that Smith will get the start over Shumpert in Game 3, but it’s unlikely there will be drastic lineup changes. The Cavaliers need to play better, not different. Thompson must find a way to insinuate himself into a game he’s been schemed out of, LeBron must find a way to ration his energy so he has something in reserve late in the game, and the Cavs as a whole must do something about all these missed shots. They have the shooters, and they have the open looks. They just need make them. Two games into the NBA Finals, the Cleveland Cavaliers face a set of seemingly unsolvable problems. Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant are scoring at will, key role players like J.R. Smith and Tristan Thompson have been erased from the series, and the pace of play has been so frenzied that even LeBron James seems to be tiring. Other teams have had similar issues with the Warriors in these playoffs, and none came up with a remedy. But there’s one thing Cleveland can do that may be a start: Hit the open shots.The Cavs are missing the gimmies. They’re generating 14 “open” 3-point shots1Meaning the nearest defender is between 4 and 6 feet away. per game and hitting just 32 percent of them. When they get “wide open” 3s,2Nearest defender more than 6 feet away. they’re even worse, shooting 22 percent on nine attempts per game. Both percentages have fallen off steeply from the Cavs’ playoff numbers on these shots before this series (42 percent and 49 percent, respectively, on a similar number of attempts per game) and from their less spectacular but still very good regular-season figures (37 percent and 42 percent). In a series in which every missed Cavaliers shot seems to bring the end of the season one possession nearer, and in which long rebounds from missed jump shots summon the deadly Golden State fast break into existence, these are shots the Cavs really can’t afford to miss.But it’s not as though these percentages are being pulled out of a random-number generator. The shots may be designated as “open,” but in context against the Warriors, they take on a far different meaning. Other teams aren’t as capable of relentlessly attacking Kevin Love on pick-and-rolls, robbing him of the energy he brings at the beginnings of quarters. Other teams can’t field a scorer like Durant to overwhelm Smith and Iman Shumpert and force LeBron to anchor the defense in addition to the the offense. And other teams can’t chase the Cavs over off-ball flare screens so easily, forcing extra passes instead of in-rhythm shots. Simply put, other teams can’t run the Cavs so ragged, and ragged legs miss jumpers.VIDEO: How the Cavs can push back in Game 3 read more

Dalpe building off AllRookie campaign

Zac Dalpe was told to report to practice early last week. “I knew something was up, because I don’t usually come in that early,” he said. When Dalpe arrived, he was greeted with the Central Collegiate Hockey Association’s Player of the Month award.Dalpe was honored for the month of January as he led the conference with five goals and three assists.“It’s flattering,” Dalpe said. “It’s a reflection of my team and its play.” The Buckeyes played at an all-conference level throughout January, posting a 4-1-1 record. For Dalpe, the award is just the most recent of many accolades he’s accumulated in his short career as a Buckeye. As a freshman, Dalpe was named to the CCHA All-Rookie Team and was a top-three finalist for Rookie of the Year honors in the conference. His 13 goals ranked seventh in the NCAA for all freshmen and tied him for third on the team. But that wasn’t enough for him. The 6-foot-1-inch forward added 15 pounds to his frame in the offseason. Now in his sophomore campaign, Dalpe leads the team with 15 goals. He has also chipped in 16 assists totaling 31 points, which is also a team high. The assistant captain has played brilliantly all season and is playing his best hockey now as the Buckeyes near the postseason.However, the Buckeyes almost missed out on seeing Dalpe suit up in scarlet and gray. Dalpe, who is a native of Paris, Ontario, had to decide between Ohio State and the Ontario Hockey League.“There was a lot of talk of me going to play in the OHL and I was going to be an older guy [in that league],” Dalpe said. “I didn’t really want to be that. I wanted to be a small fish at first and try and get bigger.” For being a small fish, Dalpe has been a big catch for the Buckeyes.Another factor in Dalpe’s decision to come to Columbus was that he’d be joined by teammates Cory Schneider and Devon Krogh. Dalpe teamed up with the duo in 2007 as a member of the Penticton Vees in British Columbia. “I knew coming in as a freshman I wasn’t going to not know anyone,” Dalpe said. “I was obviously going to have a friend to start out with. That made the transition a little smoother.”Regardless of the reason Dalpe decided to become a Buckeye, the team and fans alike are glad he did and enjoy his ability to light the lamp. But for coach John Markell, Dalpe’s most redeeming quality isn’t his ability to score or to distribute the puck, like he did in a four-assist night Friday. Rather, it’s how hard he works every day in practice.“What I like about him is [that] he and his line mates are [assistant captains] but they’re practicing the way they want to play and it’s making it easier in the games,” Markell said. Dalpe’s effort on the ice – both in practice or during games – sets the tone for the Buckeyes. “He provides us with energy and leadership, even at a young age,” Markell said. “He’s got a lot of passion for the game and that’s what you need at this level.”Growing up in Canada, Dalpe has long since possessed that passion. Dalpe started playing hockey when he was 3 and says he played as much hockey as he could with his brothers Phil and Ben.“We spent a lot of time at the rink growing up, maybe too much for my mom and dad,” Dalpe said. “My brothers have a passion for the game and you can relate to them like no one else through hockey.”It goes without saying that Dalpe’s brothers were ecstatic for him when he was drafted by the Carolina Hurricanes in the 2008 NHL entry draft. Dalpe said getting drafted was a life-long dream come true.“That’s all I wanted growing up. Sharing it with two brothers, who also play hockey, is something special,” Dalpe said. “Obviously to play in the NHL is my dream and I’m still working on it. Hopefully it can come true.” read more

Pellegrini and Klopp moan about poor decisions

first_imgJurgen Klopp and Manuel Pellegrini have both bemoaned the poor decisions of the match officials during Liverpool’s 1-1 Premier League draw at West Ham.The Reds opening goal converted by Sadio Mane should not have stood as James Milner was adjudged offside in the build-up.Michail Antonio equalised for the Hammers but Origi would have wrapped up the winner late in the game and was wrongly ignored once again.And Klopp intimated he felt Friend attempted to right the wrong of his assistant’s earlier decision to allow Mane’s goal to stand by giving decisions against the Reds.“It was a tough game. You saw around the set-piece, we knew about the routine but when we trained we had three other players in the team,” Klopp told BBC Sport.“Apparently our goal was offside and maybe the referee knew that in the second half. It’s a point and it’s a fair point.“Probably all the reports are already written without me saying anything, I didn’t see anything about the pressure that you can ask in the next few questions.“We struggled most with the set-pieces. We had ups and downs. At the end, we were up again. Now we take the point and carry on. We lost balls in different moments. It’s a deep-defending side and we have to cope with that and create.”What’s being said in this exchange between Klopp and Pellegrini? 🗣 pic.twitter.com/POt5r4BYiNHarry Maguire, Manchester UnitedLiverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.— Soccer AM (@SoccerAM) February 4, 2019Asked to further explain his confrontation with the officials, Klopp told Sky Sports: “I was really calm. He [Friend] said we don’t talk at all.“There were so many situations where it was 50-50 or 60-40… [he gave a] free-kick for the other team. As a human being I know if I make a big mistake in the first half I don’t want to open the gap even more.”Pellegrini was also critical of refereeing decisions during the game, feeling West Ham could have taken all three points.“We had a lot of chances to win this game. We drew because they scored a clearly offside goal,” Pellegrini said to BBC Sport.“The last play of the game, Origi missed that goal. He was offside. It was a big mistake from the linesman.“Playing against a team who have scored so many goals with the best defence in the league, I’m happy with the performance but disappointed with the result.“We need to grow and be more consistent in our play, it doesn’t matter against who we play.”last_img read more
