Morata goal helps Atletico Madrid to beat Bayer Leverkusen

first_imgRelatedPosts Suarez agrees Atletico terms Simeone tests positive for coronavirus Griezmann handed Barca’s no. 7 shirt Atletico Madrid substitute Alvaro Morata scored a late second half header to give his team a 1-0 victory over Bayer Leverkusen on Tuesday. The win sent them top of their UEFA Champions League Group D. In a game of few chances and many mistakes, neither team came close to breaking the deadlock before Morata scored. He did this with a powerful downward header from a Renan Lodi cross in the 78th minute. The goal gave the hosts a major boost for a top-two finish and a spot in the knockout stages. The Spaniards, unbeaten now in three group games, are on seven points, three ahead of Italy’s Juventus, who played against third-placed Lokomotiv Moscow later on Tuesday. The Germans, without a point, are in last place and all but eliminated in the run for a spot in the last 16. Atletico, who have now failed to score during the first half in their last six UEFA Champions League matches, lacked spark and intensity in the first half, with Leverkusen in control in midfield. The visitors gradually started finding pockets of space with Kevin Volland and Kerem Demirbay but they also were missing the final pass. Lodi completed a quickfire move with a fine first touch and shot to test Bayer Leverkusen goalkeeper Lukas Hradecky in a rare Atletico attack in the first half. The game picked up the pace after the break, with the hosts becoming more aggressive and Diego Costa in front of goal narrowly missing to connect with a Kieran Trippier cross. Morata did it better in the 78th when he headed in Lodi’s cross for the winner. Reuters/NAN.Tags: Alvaro MorataAtletico MadridBayer Leverkusenlast_img read more

Password Sync Feature Added to Google Chrome

first_img A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Tags:#Browsers#Google#news#web After updating from the Beta release to the Dev build on a second machine, we were then able to configure password synchronization from the settings on the additional device. To set it up, Chrome prompted for the passphrase we had just created. 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Good news for Google Chrome users – the long-anticipated password syncing functionality has just popped up in the Developer version of the Google Chrome Web browser, which means similar support for users of the beta and stable versions of Chrome is likely to be just around the corner.We were able to test the new syncing functionality this morning between multiple computers and encountered no errors or obstacles. Password syncing appears to be a go!Spotted Earlier this Year in Settings, but Was FlakyAlthough support for password syncing was spotted earlier this year in Chrome’s settings by the folks at Download Squad, the implementation was flaky and wasn’t working for all users, they reported. This latest update may hopefully deliver more stability to the feature. According to the release notes for the Dev Channel build of the Chrome browser, linked to yesterday by the official Chrome Releases blog, a number of issues relating to password synchronization have now been addressed.Message Appears on New Tab PageIn our case, we saw the badge indicating an update was available for Google Chrome. After performing the update and relaunching the browser, we noticed a note at the bottom of the New Tab page in Chrome indicating the feature. It read: “New! Google Chrome can now sync your passwords.” Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… sarah perez Clicking the link to enable the feature brought up a “Set up Sync” box where you must fill in your Google Account password. A second screen then appeared, offering you the option to encrypt your password data using either your Google Account password, or, for added security, a special “sync passphrase” – that is, a phrase or sentence that’s harder to guess. No Official Mention?Despite the feature’s appearance, there’s no official mention of password sync being added in the blog post on the Google Chrome Releases website. However, the bug fixes mentioned above do show there’s a lot of work going into polishing this new addition.It’s also interesting that the Google Chrome Dev channel is primarily focused on stability improvements right now, a trend which typically indicates that Chrome 9 (the current beta) is probably about to go stable while Chrome 10 (the current Dev build) is about to move into the beta spot. At this point, the beta testers would then have access to the password sync feature, too.But given that Google hasn’t made an official announcement about the launch of password syncing, it’s unclear whether or not the feature was supposed to debut just yet, Dev version or otherwise. Will it survive the next Dev build update? Or is this just another accidental sighting, like the one that popped up in October, but was not truly functional? Stay tuned.In the meantime, for those of you running the Dev build of Chrome, you can try out the new functionality now. Mac and Windows builds are supported. We have not tested on Linux.

Green Buildings, Missed Opportunities, and Lessons Learned

first_img RELATED ARTICLES Lessons Learned the Hard WayLessons Learned on the Path to Energy EfficiencyLessons Learned on a Living RoofA PhD and an Architect Build a Net-Zero HomeAfter a Bumpy Start, a Passivhaus Success Story Learning from our mistakesOne good thing that has come out of this experience is my commitment to help others avoid the mistakes I made. At my Build Boston talk, I used my own home as an example — both of “green that means something” and green that, well, doesn’t mean a whole lot; and I used my own remodeling experiences (including but not limited to the infamous addition) as a template for how to and how not to advance along the path to a sustainable future.I’ve learned a lot from my mistakes. They’ve become the basis for the standards, goals and tools I’m developing to help others — homeowners, architects and contractors alike — make sure that their projects truly are part of the solution to our environmental challenges. Originally built in 1895, the home had been added onto in the 1980s (the addition is visible on the right hand side of the photo) and the basement had been partially finished. We had lived in the home a couple of years, had our first child, were beginning to feel that we needed “more space” to accommodate our changing needs. Where would the grandparents stay when they came to visit? Where would we put all the toys? Where would we eat every day, since the dining room was “too nice” for young kids?Without giving it much thought, we decided to add on; it never occurred to us that we could do otherwise (Images #2 and #3, below). We added on a bathroom, mudroom (with laundry), an office/guest bedroom, and a kitchen, bringing our total square footage up to 2,400.We turned our old kitchen into a family room and opened it up to the kitchen to create a combined cooking, eating, playing and casual gathering space. (The plan is shown below as Image #4.) I once gave a talk at a Build Boston conference with Jonathan Kantar of Sage Builders, on the topic “Green That Means Something.” Yes — the implied subtext is that there’s a whole lot of “green” out there that doesn’t mean all that much. But if you visit GBA regularly, you probably already knew that.Anyway, one of the problems that we addressed is missed opportunities in green building. Homeowners typically get only a small handful of chances to dramatically improve the performance of their homes — say, when we put on a new roof or upgrade mechanicals or finish a basement. But very few of us have the foresight to take full advantage of these opportunities, no matter how green-minded we may be. In fact, some of us, present company included, have been known to squander an opportunity and even make it harder to improve performance in the future.Back in 2003 — before I had drunk the sustainability Kool-aid — my husband and I were living in an 1,800-square-foot, three-bedroom, 2 1/2-bath home (photo, above right).center_img Complicated geometry carries an energy penaltyAs much as we have enjoyed our new space, the addition was not a good move from a sustainability perspective. This is largely because of the energy penalty of those additional 600 square feet — space that needs to be heated, cooled, and electrified for the rest of the home’s lifespan.Could we have mitigated the damage somewhat by upgrading our insulation at the same time? Perhaps. But the effectiveness of any “damage control” would have been undermined by the design, which took a home with some complicated geometry and made it much more so. A bump-out here, dormers there, varied roof lines — all these architecturally interesting forms make it harder and more expensive to air seal and insulate properly.Finally, we missed an opportunity to fix our basement space, which we were already using as living space but wasn’t insulated, sealed, and ventilated properly. If we had not done an addition, we could have conditioned our basement properly and used this space to meet our changing needs. (If done right, a finished basement can be comfortable, beautiful and have excellent indoor air quality).But we didn’t do this. We did the addition, increased our energy footprint, and made it much harder to reduce this footprint in the future. No matter how “green” the choices are that we’ve made since then — from installing a high-efficiency boiler to changing out light bulbs to using fans for summertime cooling as much as possible — they won’t be able to make up for this missed opportunity.Which isn’t to say that we haven’t tried or won’t keep trying. In fact, we have made good progress towards reducing our energy use since 2004. But we were starting much further back than we would have been if we’d made different choices back in 2003.

Pawar not to contest MCA election; Vengsarkar, Vilasrao vie for top post

first_imgInternational Cricket Council (ICC) president, Sharad Pawar, has decided not to seek re-election as the president of Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) for a sixth term.Spooked by the MCA’s residency clause, Pawar took the decision as he is not a permanent resident of Mumbai, Thane or Navi Mumbai, which is a pre-requisite for holding a post in the association.Pawar, who was elected as the MCA chief for the first time in 2001, has lived in Mumbai for over 40 years. However, he had shown himself as a native of Baramati in Pune for the Lok Sabha election in 2009.The development means the MCA election would now be a straight fight between former Indian skipper Dilip Vengsarkar and Union Minister Vilasrao Deshmukh.The Shiv Sena has backed Vengsarkar for the MCA president’s post.last_img read more

The Cleveland Indians Are Dominating Like Its The 90s Again

With apologies to Bob Feller and the 1948 World Series champion Cleveland Indians, the definitive Indians team for most fans today is the one that called Jacobs Field home in the mid-to-late 1990s. And as it happens, this year’s squad, at 51-32 and coming off of a recent 14-game win-streak, looks like the franchise’s best all-around incarnation since that golden era of Cleveland baseball.Those late-’90s Indians were stocked with an outrageous number of marquee names; the 1997 Indians’ roster, for instance, contained 22 players who appeared on All-Star teams, tied for the 15th-most of any team ever. With that core, Cleveland won 59 percent of its games from 1994 to 2001, the 19th-best (non-overlapping) eight-season run by a franchise in major league history, to go with a couple of pennants and a World Series near-miss in 1997. Until LeBron James’s Cavaliers won the NBA title a few weeks ago, those Indians represented the pinnacle of modern-era Cleveland sports.But after years of jinxed and otherwise interrupted rebuilding attempts, Cleveland might finally have a real successor to those beloved ‘90s teams on its hands this season. Through 83 games, the 2016 Indians have the franchise’s highest Elo rating (our pet metric for rating a team’s quality at any given time) for this stage of a season since 1998, when the Tribe was powered by the likes of Kenny Lofton, Manny Ramirez, Jim Thome, Omar Vizquel and Bartolo Colon (a handful of belt sizes ago). The Indians of the late ‘90s were an offensive machine, scoring 1,009 runs in 1999 — the fifth-most any team ever posted in a single season — and cracking 950 on two other occasions. And given the sheer amount of hitting talent on hand in Cleveland, at the height of an era we’ll just call one of the most offensive-minded in history, it would have been difficult not to pile up the runs. But one of the secrets of those great Indians squads is that they could pitch, too. Over the same 1994-2001 period, Cleveland also had the fifth-best ERA in baseball after adjusting for park and league, and its staff accumulated the third-most wins above replacement (WAR) in MLB. The names weren’t necessarily megastars — in addition to Colon, their WAR leaders were Charles Nagy, Dave Burba and ancient versions of Dennis Martinez and Orel Hershiser — but they cobbled together a very effective pitching staff to complement a modern-day murderers’ row of hitters.This year’s Tribe cuts a similar profile of all-around goodness. Their batters have the fourth-most WAR of any position-player corps in baseball, highlighted by the emergence of 22-year-old Francisco Lindor as an outright star in his second major-league season. But they can also pitch, with a staff that boasts the eighth-most WAR in the majors. In fact, this time around, it’s the hurlers who have more star power; ace Corey Kluber won the Cy Young two seasons ago, and he might be joined in that category this year by one of his teammates, whether it be Danny Salazar or Carlos Carrasco. The sum total has been a balanced club that’s finally living up to expectations, and one that looks as scary as any in the American League at the moment.This being Cleveland, there’s plenty that could still sidetrack the Indians’ renaissance. But the city is in an unfamiliar place after actually winning something for the first time in forever. It might even — dare I say it? — be on the verge of a golden age in sports, if we put aside the the Browns. And a big part of that will rest on these Indians’ ability to match, if not surpass, the old ghosts of the 1990s.Check out our latest MLB predictions. read more

Brazils Miranda reacts to Kompanys comments

first_imgBrazil defender Miranda has dismissed Vicent Kompany’s “provocation” as nothing more than a facade to “hide” his true fear ahead of their meeting with Belgium in the quarter-finals of the World Cup todayThe Manchester City captain had previously stated that both himself and his teammates would not be losing any sleep over facing the five-time world champions.But Miranda, who will captain Brazil today, thinks otherwise.“We know there is all kinds of provocation, it’s a way to hide your fear,” said the 33-year-old, according to Marca.“I think it’s a way of showing trust, and hiding fear. You have to prepare yourself, especially against the Brazil national team.“A leader like Kompany has to show confidence to his team-mates, just as the more experienced players have to show confidence through our actions to our own team-mates.”Brazil boss Tite has confirmed that Fernandinho will be replacing the injured Casemiro with full-back Marcelo making a welcome return.Neymar, BrazilNeymar can win the Ballon d’Or, says Ander Herrera Andrew Smyth – September 13, 2019 An “excited” Ander Herrera believes new Paris Saint-Germain team-mate Neymar is a contender for the Ballon d’Or alongside Kylian Mbappe.But the 57-year-old feels that Brazil’s World Cup campaign will come down to how the players cope with the mounting pressure, rather than the individual talent.“The biggest challenge of a World Cup is mental fortitude, the pressure is immense, extraordinary,” said Tite.“I hope the ‘family’ (his squad and staff), keep their heads cool. There is a lot of psychological pressure.”Following their win over Mexico in the first knockout round, Tite is now feeling calmer.“Why am I more relaxed? Because the players are performing, that makes you feel at ease,” he said.“Of course I want them to grow more and more, that’s the challenge.”last_img read more
