Hamilton Rescues HamiltonRemember that idea back in June last year about the Treasury ditching Alexander Hamilton on the ten dollar bill and replacing him with a woman? There was a big outcry with all sorts having their two cents worth (why on earth were they going after the first treasury secretary and not Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill, that sort of thing). Of course, since then Hamilton the musical has become a gargantuan hit and it would now appear that the Great White Way has rescued Hamilton the founding father. The tuner’s creator, Lin-Manuel Miranda, recently revealed that he spoke about the matter with his pal Jack Lew, secretary of the Treasury, who told him that Hamilton fans would be “very happy” about the new ten dollar bill. Does this mean Eliza is going to be on it? Or maybe a certain Tony winner…?! View Commentslast_img read more

Soccer future is so bright Kootenays had better adopt the shades

first_imgHumphries was in Nelson this past week to assist in the Whitecaps Prospect Camps at Lakeside Fields.The camp auditioned many of the elite players in Nelson Youth Soccer for Whitecaps staff as well as enabling camp participants to train under top flight coaching.“The progress made in Nelson has been brilliant,” Humphries said.“There are some really exciting young talented players coming out of the Kootenays.”“Progressing players into the (BC Senior Premier League) BCSPL (through Thompson/Okanagan Soccer Club) is a massive achievement and shows that the talent pathway is producing players that can compete at the highest level in BC.”The work of Adams, as regional head coach of the Whitecaps Kootenay Academy Centre and liaison coach with Nelson Youth Soccer, has definitely stepped up the training players have been receiving at the local level.And this training is paying off not only with teams finding success at the provincial level, but also with individual players growth.“There are some very talented players for sure . . . if not at this point, then in the future I am sure we will see some players come through,” Humphries said when asked about future Regional EXCEL Centre program candidates coming from Nelson.“Brett and his team do a great job of progressing the girls and pushing them to compete with the best, which is important for me to see.”“The likes of Sophie Borhi and Michaela Anderson making TOFC is an important step in trying to make our REX group, so I will be tracking their progress and others that come through the Kootenays over the next couple of years.”Oh no. Looks like the secret is getting out. It’s obvious from the number of tourists arriving on Nelson’s main drag the secret is getting out regarding one of the most beautiful places to visit in the world.The same can be said for youth soccer in the Heritage City as Nelson welcomed the head of the girl’s high performance for the Vancouver Whitecaps of Major League Soccer, Emma Humphries.“I think it’s extremely important to the development of the players to see the girls head elite coach,” said Brett Adams, regional head coach of the Whitecaps Kootenay Academy Centre.“The girls side is booming at this time,” Adams added.“With (L.V. Rogers) high school winning provincial gold and the (Nelson Youth Soccer) U16 girls rep capturing gold, the U18 girls silver and the U14 girls bronze, it just shows the work that is happening on the girls side.”And Humphries, as part of her role as Girls Elite REX head coach and Girls Programs director, has noticed the improvement during travels to Nelson over the past two years.“I have been to Nelson three times in the past two years and have seen tremendous progress every time,” Humphries explains.“The girls program in Nelson seems to have really taken off.”last_img read more

Step Aside, T. Rex: Bigger Dino Found

first_imgA cache of dinosaur bones, meat-eaters bigger than Tyrannosaurus rex, has been uncovered in South America.  National Geographic News says the new species, Mapusaurus, exceeded the former heavyweight carnivore in size and agility.  All the bones in a river deposit were 100% from this one species, so “the chances they had been deposited randomly are extremely low, said Rudolfo Coria, the discoverer.  “The skeletons showed no signs of disease, Coria says, so the animals were apparently victims of some sudden catastrophic event.”  The article says that even larger creatures may remain to be discovered.  See also MSNBC News, which has comparative diagrams.What would bury a group of heavy, agile, strong, mobile, intelligent monsters suddenly?  Think about it.(Visited 35 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Chrome Extensions Get Desktop Notifications

first_imgTags:#Browsers#Google#web Extensions for Google Chrome can now send out desktop notifications. Google just announced the availability of a notifications API for Chrome extension developers. Until now, only websites were able to deliver non-model messages with the notifications API, which was first introduced in Chrome 4 for Windows. Now, extension developers will be able to make use of the desktop notifications API to deliver notifications that appear outside of the browser window as well. One of the first extensions to make use of these system-wide notifications is the popular Gmail Notifier add-on for Chrome. After installing the extension, you will receive a notification whenever a new email arrives in your inbox. The advantage of this system is that you will see this notification, even if you are not looking at your browser.Some users will surely complain that OSX and Linux already have perfectly good system-wide notifications systems. This new notifications API, however, allows developers to create their extensions without having to think about the desktop platform and Google’s own developers won’t have to interface with multiple third-party desktop notifications platforms either. Chances are that we will see a variation of these desktop notifications in Google’s Chrome OS as well.

Back to back champs: Penguins beat Predators for Stanley Cup

first_imgWhat ‘missteps’? Ethel Booba on hotel’s clarification that ‘kikiam’ is ‘chicken sausage’: ‘Kung di pa pansinin, baka isipin nila ok lang’ LATEST STORIES READ: Penguins end Predators’ magical postseason runHaving won just three of 12 playoff series before this year, Nashville opened this postseason by eliminating the top-seeded Chicago Blackhawks in four games. In doing so, the Predators became the first eighth-seeded team to sweep a first-round series since the current playoff format was introduced in 1994. Nashville went through St. Louis and then Anaheim, with only captain Mike Fisher carrying any Cup Final experience on the roster.The stingy Predators found Pittsburgh was up to the task, with the Penguins taking the first two games on home ice. Nashville roared back at home to even things up, but the Penguins routed Nashville to set up Game 6.The Penguins ruined Nashville’s big party where the game coincided with the final night of CMA Music Festival, bringing more than 100,000 to downtown Nashville. Country star Luke Bryan serenaded fans from the rooftop of a honky-tonk in a performance that kicked off the television broadcast, and he also sang a four-song set for fans inside and outside the arena an hour before face-off.Faith Hill became the latest to sing the national anthem with husband, star Tim McGraw, giving her a hug once finished before waving a towel in each hand. At least five catfish hit the ice before the face-off.Then in a series that hadn’t featured even a single one-goal game was scoreless through the first 40 minutes. The Predators thought they had the first goal of the game, just like they did in Game 1 in Pittsburgh for being offsides, only to have referee Kevin Pollock wave it off immediately. He had whistled the play dead when he lost sight of the puck with Murray on the ice between him and the puck.Sissons tapped the puck into the net 67 seconds into the second period behind Murray’s back. Officials huddled, but the goal was not allowed.Murray also stopped Sissons on a breakaway midway through the second and also gloved a shot from Viktor Arvidsson later in the period.The Penguins also killed off 32 seconds of a 5-on-3 at 8:47 of the third after Trevor Daley punched Ryan Ellis with Olli Maatta already in the box for tripping. Murray made a big stop on a shot by Mattias Ekholm followed by a save on Arvidsson.This championship season for the Penguins lacked some of the drama from a year ago, but it was far from a slam dunk. Washington won the President’s Trophy for a second straight season and pushed Pittsburgh to seven games in the second round. Ottawa did the same thing, forcing the Penguins to double overtime to clinch the Eastern Conference title.

Colton Sissons had a goal erased by a whistle 67 seconds into the second period. The Predators went 0 of 4 with the man advantage, including 32 seconds of a 5-on-3 in the third.Forget a golden anniversary: The Penguins will cap their 50th season with their names on the most famous silver cup in sports — again. It is also the third championship for Crosby and a handful of teammates from the 2009 title team, surpassing the two won by the Penguins teams led by current owner Mario Lemieux in the 1990s.And it’s the second championship in 18 months for coach Mike Sullivan, who has yet to lose a playoff series since taking over after Mike Johnston was fired. Sullivan is the first American-born coach to win the Cup not once, but twice.Matt Murray became the first goalie to win not one, but two Stanley Cups as a rookie after being a late-season call up a year ago and didn’t play enough games to get that tag removed. That’s something neither Patrick Roy, Ken Dryden or Cam Ward ever managed, but the 23-year-old Murray finished this Cup Final shutting out Nashville for the final 126:52.The loss ended the upstart Predators’ deepest playoff run in the franchise’s 19-year history and one that became the talk of the town far beyond Music City, catfish and all.ADVERTISEMENT WATCH: Firefighters rescue baby seal found in parking garage 1 dead in Cavite blast, fire Crosby, Malkin and others also played in the World Cup of Hockey before the season, making this an even longer year than usual.

Forget Twitter: It’s For The Tragically Connected

first_imgLets get real about this, to paraphrase Loren Feldman, “Twitter: people write stuff, people read stuff. That’s it”. There is no big social networking secret at work here. It’s simply a communication tool and not even a very good one. It breaks down more often than my first car, which I only paid $240 for. If you think using Twitter is free, you are insane. As a business person, you already realize that your time is money, so when you spend an hour on Twitter learning what people had for lunch, you are paying for that. When you think about it, you can apply that to everything. Even reading this post is going to cost you money, I just hope I can make it profitable for you. The above article was written in collaboration with Twitter is fantastic if you have a market which already uses the system. But ask yourself, do you need to reach out to that market? By the way, you can Building a following from scratch simply using Twitter is possibly not the best use of your time. A following on Twitter should be viewed as a by-product of success elsewhere. This only makes sense if your business is with the natural inhabitants of this system. You need to be able to connect with your customer base by giving them the least amount of hoops to jump  through. Even RSS. How many normal people use an RSS reader? I live and die by RSS, but I am not  normal. I live life on the cutting edging of Web 2.0. The truth is, twitter is for geeks. Actually, it’s not even for geeks, it’s for uber-geeks. Not that there is anything wrong with that, I use twitter myself and have at times been called a geek. But to someone who uses the Internet for business (gasp!) and to make money, Twitter is often just a distraction. company name on Twitter even if you don’t plan to use it, just in case.  -Dharmesh Still not convinced? Still want to walk the soft sands and hoped you wont get sucked in?  Then, by all means, Twitter away.  Originally published Jun 12, 2008 12:47:00 PM, updated October 20 2016 , a social media marketing expert.  Thanks, Lyndon!  It’s something for the ADD crowd to cook up and inject into their veins. There is nothing wrong with using these systems. But what are you online for? Chat, make friends, make love? All good stuff, but are you online to make money? It’s important to get your priorities right. Is your market the uber geek? If so, dive in, Twitter is where your market is at. Twitter is addictive. Real people are using it to communicate, and that can be fun. If you are online to have fun, fine and dandy. But, if it’s profit you are after, you need to judge accordingly. Some have said it’s a great tool to use for list building. But when you absolutely need to build a list and be able to communicate with your market, a third party system is not it. Email is far more effective and people do not have to sign up to a third party system to use email. Unless your customers already have a Twitter account, forget it. If your customer base already uses Twitter, you may have already read numerous blog posts praising the system and are using it to your advantage. If so, that’s great.  That is not what this post is about. Topics: But, if you own a small consulting firm or are the VP marketing for a medium-sized manufacturing firm, I doubt twitter is where your customer base will be hanging out. You need to identify and connect with your customers and potential customers, and Twitter is not usually the most efficient (or effective) way to do that. This post is not an anti-Twitter post, it’s not even a pro-Twitter post. It’s a “Do that which makes sense for your business” post, a reminder that there are black holes out there which will suck all your precious time from you and not give you much (if any) return. Lyndon Antcliff if you’d like, and I promise not to tell you what I had for lunch. And regardless, I still think you should reserve your brand name or To get real benefit from Twitter you need to build a following.  Those who  already have over a thousand followers can send a digg request or a “hey, check out this post”, and get a great response. But here’s the thing, that following has been built up over months or years, with hours worth of expended effort. People simply follow/fan/friend the same people whatever system they are in. The person being followed simply says, “check out this new system”, and they all go join and add the same people to their list. follow me on Twitter Twitter Marketing Don’t forget to share this post!
