Joe Allen signs new long-term deal at relegated Stoke City

first_imgAllen’s previous deal was reported to have three years left on it, with a £25million release clause inserted that only applied to the Premier League’s top six.With none of those sides coming forward to bid for the player and only mid-table clubs showing interest, Allen chose to remain at the bet365 Stadium after Stoke’s 10-year stay in the Premier League came to an end last season.Allen said on the club website: “I spoke to (Stoke CEO) Tony Scholes once the season had ended and he made it very clear that the club weren’t interested in selling me and that they wanted me to stay on.“That stance from the club, coupled with how settled I am here, how happy I am and how much I’ve enjoyed it, made it pretty straightforward for me. targets Tony Cascarino backs Everton to sign two strikers for Carlo Ancelotti Where every Premier League club needs to strengthen in January Kevin De Bruyne ‘loves Man City and wants to keep winning’, reveals father Allen was one of few Stoke players to come out with any credit as they finished three points adrift of safety in 2017/18 IN DEMAND 2 RANKED Cavani ‘agrees’ to join new club and will complete free transfer next summer LATEST TOP WORK targets Man United joined by three other clubs in race for Erling Haaland Top nine Premier League free transfers of the decade REVEALED Joe Allen ended speculation about his future at Stoke City on Monday by signing a new four-year deal with the club amid interest from a raft of Premier League clubs.The Welsh midfielder played 36 times as the Potters were relegated to the Championship last season and will stick with them as they seek an immediate return to the top flight. Allen joined Stoke from Liverpool for £13m in 2016 2 LIVING THE DREAM New Stoke boss Gary Rowett added: “Joe’s were the first comments that I read at the end of last season and it was clear from what he said that he wanted to atone for what had happened.“That’s exactly what any club, any set of fans and any manager want to hear – they want players to feel a sense of responsibility.“For a player of that quality to want to stay, want to commit to the future tells you how good the club is and that he can see potentially a better season ahead.I’m delighted. He’s exactly the type of player we need because he’s got Premier League quality and he’s also got the mentality to handle life in the Championship in my opinion.” “As players we have to shoulder responsibility for what happened last season.“Sometimes in football when things go wrong players try to wash their hands of it but I’m hoping a few more of the lads will have the same target of trying to set the record straight and helping the club bounce straight back.” The biggest market value losers in 2019, including Bale and ex-Liverpool star moving on Arsenal transfer news LIVE: Ndidi bid, targets named, Ozil is ‘skiving little git’ Liverpool’s signings under Michael Edwards – will Minamino be the next big hit? three-way race Chelsea confident of beating Man United and Liverpool to Sancho signing LATEST TRANSFER NEWS ON TALKSPORT.COMlast_img read more

Trouble in Cosmologyland

first_imgUnderneath the veneer of certainty portrayed by TV documentaries about the universe are deep questions and controversies.  Some of these briefly appear on publicly-available news stories, only to be covered by new coats of certainty.  Are the new veneers fixing the problems or, instead, whitewashing serious weaknesses in current cosmological understanding?  Here are some quick looks under the veneer. Speaking of the Cosmological Principle, it has been wrongly been attributed to Copernicus – a man who admired God’s supreme architecture of the heavens.  Dava Sobel, who wrote the illuminating historical Galileo’s Daughter, that did much to debunk the science-vs-religion myth of the Galileo affair, has a new book out: A More Perfect Heaven: How Copernicus Revolutionized the Cosmos (Walker/Bloomsbury 2011).  Owen Gingerich reviewed it in Nature last week (Nature 477, 15 Sept 2011, pp. 276–277, doi:10.1038/477276a) and considers it “first rate… a charming and accurate book, although it omits much of the technical background in which earlier accounts revelled.”  Apparently the semi-fictional account by this gifted writer gives prominence to Rheticus, a Lutheran: “True to the historical record, Rheticus finally persuades the ageing canon to allow a copy of his manuscript to be taken to Nuremberg for printing.”  See the 4/30/2004 entry, “Lutherans Helped Copernicus,” for more non-fiction about this central character in the rise of modern cosmology; see also our online biography of Copernicus (March 2008, right sidebar) Why do most teachers, textbook writers, and TV documentary producers concentrate on the whitewash, and ignore the termites?  Find many more termites in the cosmology house by searching on “Cosmology” topics on our search bar.  Listen also to some of the things David Berlinski told National Review TV last month about scientists’ hubris about physics and cosmology (see list of episodes on Evolution News & Views).(Visited 14 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0 Disturbing:  “Dwarf galaxies suggest dark matter theory may be wrong,” wrote Leila Battison for the BBC News.  We’ve heard it for years; “The current theory holds that around 4% of the Universe is made up of normal matter – the stuff of stars, planets and people – and around 21% of it is dark matter.”  Why, then, did leading cosmologist Carlos Frenk call new developments “disturbing”?  The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) has been unable to find cold dark matter (CDM), an essential ingredient for the Standard Model of the birth and evolution of the universe.  “Scientists working on the problem have recently expressed dismay at the universally negative results coming from the LHC, and this has led some to consider that the standard model may be wrong.”  Either cosmologists do not understand the formation of dwarf galaxies, or (something that Frenk is “losing sleep” over), a more disturbing alternative is dawning on them: “that CDM does not exist, and the predictions of the standard model relating to it are false.” Hunt for darkness:  Various teams are still searching for dark matter anyway.  PhysOrg reported 67 anomalous results from the CRESST experiment deep under a mountain in Italy that cannot be explained except by Weakly Interacting Massive Particles (WIMPs), a theoretical form of dark matter.  That does not mean dark matter is real; only that it has not been ruled out by these unexplained detections.  Antimatter, anti-dark matter:  Meanwhile, other detectors are disconfirming dark matter.  “Antimatter enthusiasts will love it; dark matter hunters not so much,” quipped Stuart Clark for New Scientist.  “NASA’s FERMI satellite has confirmed a previous hint that there is more antimatter than expected coming from space. The bad news is that the result almost certainly rules out dark matter as the source.” Long-held assumption doubted:  We’ve been told for quite awhile that large galaxies grew by collisions with smaller ones.  “ESA’s Herschel infrared space observatory has discovered that galaxies do not need to collide with each other to drive vigorous star birth,” Science Daily reported.  “The finding overturns this long-held assumption and paints a more stately picture of how galaxies evolve.”  That is, for now.  Whatever picture emerges next, “These new observations now change our perception of the history of the Universe.” Will God Particle be science fiction?  The Higgs Boson (a.k.a. “God particle”) is running out of places to hide.  Central to cosmological theories for the origin of mass, it continues to elude detection by the Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland.  Finding the Higgs was one of the world’s largest detector’s prime missions (see video posted on Deseret News for explanation).  Believers are running out of time waiting for God-ought (where ought is slang for zero).  PhysOrg reported; “if it’s not there, it will be known to be science fiction by December.” Cosmological Principle under siege:  One of the most beloved of all cosmological notions is that the universe is homogeneous and isotropic – that at large scales, every place looks the similar to any other, so that there is no preferred direction or location in the universe.  Watch out; PhysOrg titled an entry, “New evidence for a preferred direction in spacetime challenges the cosmological principle.”  Enter an anisotropy to muck things up.  The article explains, “the universe’s expansion is accelerating at a faster rate in one direction than another. In the most recent study, scientists have analyzed data from 557 Type 1a supernovae and found, in agreement with some previous studies, that the universe’s expansion seems to be accelerating faster in the direction of a small part of the northern galactic hemisphere.”  Critics point to contrary evidence from the cosmic microwave background.  “Yet considering that the cosmological principle is one of the pillars of modern cosmology whose fundamental importance is difficult to exaggerate, threats to its credibility won’t be taken lightly,” the article ended.  “If the cosmological principle turns out to be wrong, it would dramatically change the way we look at the world.”last_img read more

CES 2011: Verizon Says It Can Handle the Data

first_imgTags:#CES 2011#conferences#mobile#web Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces Related Posts What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech …center_img The Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technology mike melanson Everywhere you look at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show there’s another company or device focused on streaming content to the ever-expanding sea of mobile users. There are cars with Pandora-enabled stereo systems, Netflix-streaming smartphones and Yahoo-connected tablets. With each new device we add more and more burden to the infrastructure that handles delivering all of this content, but Verizon CEO Ivan Seidenberg assured the crowd at the Consumer Electronics Show this morning that Verizon is working to handle that burden.“We are more than capable of handling the huge growth in video traffic that we anticipate seeing in the years ahead,” Seidenberg said during his opening keynote, explaining that Verizon’s recently launched 4G LTE network could satiate our hunger for mobile data. Ten years ago, said Seidenberg, only 1 in 3 people had a cell phone. Today, 9 in 10 do and wireless data conusumption has more than doubled every year. This generation of increasingly-connected individuals, he explained, “imagine access to everything at their fingertips and they want it now. They see everything as being connected – their homes, their cars, their streets.” While we all entered the keynote hall this morning hoping against hope to hear about the much awaited Verizon iPhone, we instead heard some bragging from Verizon about its ability to handle mobile data. Put another way, however, what we heard today may well have been Verizon’s way of saying, “We know, the iPhone came in and squished AT&T’s network, but we’re prepared.” Disclosure: Verizon, through the Federated Media ad network, is one of ReadWriteWeb’s sponsors.last_img read more

BrickerBot malware will brick unsecure Internet of Things devices

first_imgTags:#BrickerBot#cybersecurity#Internet of Things#IoT#Linux#malware#Mirai#Radware#smart home Follow the Puck David Curry Internet of Things Makes it Easier to Steal You… Small Business Cybersecurity Threats and How to…center_img Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces A new malicious software program targeting Linux-based Internet of Things (IoT) devices, called BrickerBot, has been spotted by cybersecurity vendor Radware.BrickerBot is similar to Mirai, the destructive malware program that enlists corrupt IoT devices into botnets for denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks. Like Mirai, BrickerBot attacks unsecure devices that have not changed the default username and password.See also: 5 IoT cybersecurity predictions for the coming yearOnce inside the unsecure device, BrickerBot starts to permanently remove the storage and revokes Internet access, effectively killing the unit. This is the major difference between Mirai and BrickerBot; while Mirai uses the corrupt IoT devices, BrickerBot makes them unusable.It is not known how many devices, if any, have fallen victim to a BrickerBot attack.The attack does appear to be easy to pull off in theory, as all an attacker would need is remote access to the IoT device. Many of the devices are connected to the Internet through routers that suffer from the same poor authentication and encryption techniques.Here are a few tipsThe firm said it provides five solutions to make avoid a BrickerBot attack:Change the device’s factory default credentials.Disable Telnet access to the device.Network Behavioral Analysis can detect anomalies in traffic and combine with automatic signature generation for protection.User/Entity behavioral analysis (UEBA) to spot granular anomalies in traffic early.An IPS should block Telnet default credentials or reset telnet connections.It is another sign that IoT devices need at least basic security to avoid catastrophic damage to commercial and industrial devices. Most manufacturers still lack basic encryption and do not teach users how to change the username and password. Related Posts last_img read more
