Raiders take another shot at Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce

first_imgOAKLAND — The acquisitions the Raiders made in the offseason to upgrade their offensive and defensive lines and bolster their running game all paid dividends in their Week 1 win over the Denver Broncos.Now it’s time to see if the Raiders secondary, with Lamarcus Joyner but without Johnathan Abram, can slow down the Kansas City Chiefs and what is arguably the NFL’s best passing attack, led by quarterback Patrick Mahomes, receiver Sammy Watkins and tight end Travis Kelce.The Raiders host the …last_img


Ohio Ag Weather and Forecast, September 10, 2018

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Dramatic changes to our forecast this morning. After rains moved through the state this weekend, our forecast had been for additional moisture Wednesday through Friday of this week. These changes come completely at the hand of Hurricane Florence. Over the weekend Florence sharpened her course and looks to slow as she heads toward the Carolinas for landfall later this week. A slowing storm over favorable waters for strengthening means Florence can really step up her size and scope. This storm is moving east northeast against a typical weather flow pattern across the northern hemisphere of west to east. Think of a snowplow pushing snow…the more if pushes, the more it backs up the snow in the path ahead of it and starts to push things around to either side. This hurricane will do the same to our weather pattern across the eastern US…it will back things up and slow progression down. For us here in Ohio, that will yield a much drier outlook.So, as a result, even though we still are dealing with some moisture trying to move away out of the area today, we see dry weather the rest of this week, through the weekend and through at least Wednesday morning next week. Today, we will still have to deal with plenty of clouds and scattered light precipitation, more frequent in nature over eastern parts of the state. However, as we approach sunset, action should be done and gone in most areas, and we will be drying out already late morning and early afternoon in western Ohio, even if the sun take its own sweet time breaking through the clouds. For the rest of the week, there are no significant rain threats at this time. High pressure works in by midweek, and then as the pattern slows and stalls, we will find ourselves on the backside of the high, getting good south winds and dry air working in. That being said…as moisture from Florence spreads across the Carolinas into Virginia, Tennessee and even West Virginia, we can see some clouds from that blowing into southern Ohio later this week into the weekend. We don’t think any rain is possible at this time, but will monitor areas down near the river as the hurricane progresses inland.Our next front with good potential for precipitation shows up later next Wednesday afternoon (19th) into Thursday (20th) and may bring up to half an inch of rain to the region. Behind that, for the rest of the 11-16 day period we have only one more system, around the 23rd into the 24th with scattered showers and perhaps a quarter of an inch of rain.Temps will stay cool today and will get back closer to normal for tomorrow and Wednesday. However, for the rest of the week, weekend and first part of next week, we expect warm air to build back in, and we should see afternoon highs running about 5-10 degrees above normal, averaging in the lower to middle 80s. The map at right shows afternoon highs this Saturday. With lower humidity and evaporation rates near maximum levels, we should see excellent dry down later this week through the end of the 10-day period, and we expect harvest should start to increase the farther out we go.last_img read more


Amazon Web Services Adds an Un-Cloudy Option to Its IaaS

first_imgWhy Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… klint finley Tags:#cloud#Cloud Providers A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Related Posts center_img Amazon Web Services announced today the availability of a new service: Amazon EC2 Dedicated Instances. Instead of using a multitenant architecture, the new service gives customers dedicated hardware. In other words, instead of sharing physical servers with other customers, Dedicated EC2 customers will have their own private servers. AWS competitor GoGrid recently announced a similar service called Hosted Private Cloud.Multitenacy is one of the defining features of the cloud, but it’s also considered risky. The new service takes a lot of uncertainty out of running applications in public infrastructure, but also reduces the elasticity of the service. It’s also more expensive.Here’s how we explained the trade-offs when GoGrid announced its service:The advantage over a public cloud is that none of your data is “touching” that of another customer. The disadvantage is that you have to pay for resources that you might not use. The advantage over a private cloud is that you can rent the resources without putting up capital expenditure money or the time and labor of building a data center. The disadvantage is that you still have to trust an outside organization to store your data.However, according to the announcement from the official Amazon Web Services Blog:It is important to note that launching a set of instances with dedicated tenancy does not in any way guarantee that they’ll share the same hardware (they might, but you have no control over it). We actually go to some trouble to spread them out across several machines in order to minimize the effects of a hardware failure.AWS bills for the new service by the hour. There’s a $10 an hour per region fee, plus a cheaper hourly fee per instance. Pricing can be found here.Here’s an explanation from the AWS Blog of the region fee:When you launch a Dedicated Instance, we can’t use the remaining “slots” on the hardware to run instances for other AWS users. Therefore, we incur an opportunity cost when you launch a single Dedicated Instance. Put another way, if you run one Dedicated Instance on a machine that can support 10 instances, 9/10ths of the potential revenue from that machine is lost to us.In order to keep things simple (and to keep you from wasting your time trying to figure out how many instances can run on a single piece of hardware), we add a $10/hour charge whenever you have at least one Dedicated Instance running in a Region. When figured as a per-instance cost, this charge will asymptotically approach $0 (per instance) for customers that run hundreds or thousands of instances in a Region.This service continues AWS’ shift towards being more enterprise-friendly.AWS has been adding features and services such as the Virtual Private Cloud Wizard, Cloud Formation and Elastic Beanstalk that make managing applications on the AWS infrastructure easier. It also expanded its support services. Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Marketlast_img read more

He’s one of the best top, top players in the world,” said Solskjaer in his pre-match press conference for Sunday’s clash with Bournemouth.”Attacking wise he’s done really well but he’s a big lad, can win headers, tackles, he’s been the same as the others. The attitude has been perfect and that’s key, you should be tired towards the end of every single game he’s been top class and we’re looking to build a team around of course but there are so many quality players.” last_img read more

By the numbers Ohio States dramatic overtime victory over Wisconsin

OSU redshirt junior cornerback Gareon Conley (8) and OSU redshirt sophomore cornerback Marshon Lattimore (2) celebrate Conley’s first half interception during the Buckeyes game against the Badgers on Oct. 15. The Buckeyes won 30-23 in overtime. Credit: Alexa Mavrogianis | Photo EditorThen-No. 8 Wisconsin gave the No. 2 Ohio State Buckeyes their hardest test of the season on Saturday, leading by 10 at half and by three late in the fourth quarter before OSU came out victorious in overtime, 30-23.The two teams met for the first matchup since OSU demolished the Badgers 59-0 in the 2014 Big Ten Championship Game. The Badgers defense diminished OSU’s hurry-up offense in the first half, while Wisconsin’s power running game rolled through the Buckeyes’ normally dominant defense.  Wisconsin took a 16-6 lead going into halftime, putting the second-ranked Buckeyes in unfamiliar territory.The Badgers have played OSU tough in Madison in past years, even upsetting a top-ranked OSU in 2010, and falling in overtime to a sixth-ranked Buckeyes team in 2012. Wisconsin had all the momentum as the second half kicked off.  However, OSU coach Urban Meyer had some key defensive adjustments, and held the Badgers to a measly 11 offensive yards in the third quarter as the Buckeyes scored twice to take the lead 20-16.  The Badgers, then, moved the ball quickly down the field as they retook the lead, 23-20 in the fourth quarter. OSU senior kicker Tyler Durbin hit a field goal with 3:57 left in the quarter to tie the game at 23, which was enough to send the game into overtime for the second meeting in a row between these two teams in Madison.OSU redshirt junior quarterback J.T. Barrett, who struggled for most of the first half, went 4-for-4 with the game-winning touchdown pass to redshirt sophomore wide receiver Noah Brown in overtime.  The Buckeye defense then held Wisconsin on its possession holding out for the 30-23 win over the Badgers.  For the game, Barrett had 226 yards passing on 17-of-29 attempts with a touchdown and an interception and added 92 yards and two touchdowns on the ground.  Wisconsin senior running back Corey Clement had a career game for the Badgers, gaining 164 rushing yards on 25 carries. Redshirt freshmen quarterback Alex Hornibrook added 214 yards on 16-of-28 attempts with a touchdown and an interception.By The Numbers3-3: In the Buckeyes last six trips to Madison, they have won only three times, including two overtime wins.  The Badgers knocked off a No. 1, No. 3 and 18th-ranked OSU team in their three wins.89: Barrett scored his 89th career touchdown in overtime, setting the school record for most touchdowns accounted for.  The previous record was held by Braxton Miller, with 88.0: The Badgers’ defense have not allowed a touchdown in the first quarter through six games.6: The Badgers held OSU to only 6 points in the first half, which was the fewest points scored by Ohio State in the first half since Meyer joined the program in 2012. read more


Ohio State continues taking pride in defense

Junior guard Shannon Scott (left) guards an opposing player during a game against North Dakota State Dec. 14 at the Schottenstein Center. OSU won, 79-62.Credit: Shelby Lum / Photo editorAs former Alabama football coach Paul “Bear” Bryant once said: “Offense sells tickets. Defense wins championships.”If that is to be believed, then the No. 3 Ohio State men’s basketball team is a lock for a deep run in the NCAA Tournament this season.A year after losing one of the most prolific scorers in Buckeye basketball history, forward Deshaun Thomas, to the 2013 NBA Draft, the Buckeyes have built a winning start to this season on defense.Despite falling in their most recent game, a 72-68 defeat in overtime against No. 5 Michigan State in East Lansing, Mich., the Buckeyes are still allowing only an even 56 points per game. The 72 put up by the Spartans was the highest total against OSU this season.The Spartans struggled at times against OSU’s defense, turning over the ball over 17 times. After the game, MSU coach Tom Izzo was complimentary of the Buckeye defense.“Everybody knows they’re the best defensive team in the country,” Izzo said. “Everybody knows those guards are leading the country in steals. They get after you. You just have to man up.”Two of OSU’s starting guards, senior Aaron Craft and junior Shannon Scott, are in the top 35 in the country in steals per game, with Craft tied for 20th.Scott, who tallied three steals against the Spartans, has been improving consistently on defense despite still making mistakes, OSU coach Thad Matta said.“He got out of position one time and they made us pay for it, but Shannon is quick,” Matta said after the game Tuesday. “He is difficult to guard and he hit some big free throws, some big shots down the stretch.”The 56 points per game is best in the Big Ten, with second place and No. 4-ranked Wisconsin allowing 60.5 a contest.OSU freshman forward Marc Loving said Dec. 17 that having such a strong defensive team makes every practice tougher than the games.“The game’s are a lot easier compared to practice … we have one of the best defense in the country,” Loving said. “So when we practice with great defenders like (senior guard) Lenzelle (Smith Jr.), Aaron (Craft) and (junior forward) Sam (Thompson) … they’re lock down defenders so the game will just be 10 times easier when you get on the court.”Since Big Ten play began, the Buckeyes are allowing 64.7 points per game, but their defense continues to impress.Nebraska coach Tim Miles said after his team lost to OSU, 84-53, Jan. 4 that it’s hard to get things going against such a talented defensive team.“Ohio State’s really good … their defensive quickness really causes problems. They have the ability to switch a lot of things,” Miles said.Before the Big Ten opener against Purdue, Scott said the team is enjoying the way it plays defense.“I think as a team standpoint, we’re taking pride in our defense now,” Scott said Dec. 30. “It’s not just me and Aaron … it’s everybody now. The fact that we’re all taking pride in that makes it a lot of fun for us to play defense and hopefully we can keep doing it in the Big Ten and keep going from there.”The Buckeyes will need a stout defensive performance in their next game to prevent a second consecutive loss. The 20th ranked Iowa Hawkeyes (12-3, 1-1) are scheduled to visit Columbus to take on the Buckeyes, and come in sporting the conference’s top offense, scoring an average 86.1 points per game.Scott said Dec. 13 the goal for the Buckeyes is to make teams fear playing against the defense.“Coach Matta talks about it a lot, about every game, that we’re the best defense in the country,” Scott said. “We really want to have that in our heads that nobody should be able to score on us … From a viewpoint of other teams speaking of us as a problem on defense, we really want that to happen. We want them to be scared to play against us. As long as we can keep doing that, it’s going to make our game a lot easier.” read more
