Watch: Steph Curry says goodbye to Oracle one last time

first_imgThe Warriors paid homage to Oracle Arena all season during their final year in Oakland, but, for old time’s sake, Stephen Curry literally gave the only NBA home he’s ever known a shout out.While driving north on I-880 on Sunday afternoon, the two-time NBA MVP shot a video he later posted on Instagram of him cruising past the old arena while listening to E-40’s Warriors version of “Choices.““I’m gonna miss that place!” Curry shouted above the Oakland rapper’s lyrics. “I’m gonna miss you.”St …last_img read more

OneWebDay Celebrates the Internet as Public Utility on September 22, 2009

The events map can be seen at the OneWebDay website. Tomorrow, annual event OneWebDay, which began in 2006 as a general celebration of the web, will be devoted to examining broadband as a fundamental necessity of modern life.Mozilla Foundation founder Mitch Kapor said in a press release, “Ultimately, we want to ensure that anyone who wants it has access to the Internet and, importantly, the skills they need to fully participate. The ability to access and use a fast, affordable, and open Internet is essential for every student, every entrepreneur, and every citizen who wants full access to our government and the democratic process.”OneWebDay has been working with national organizations prominent in Internet advocacy. In addition to supporting Mozilla’s Service Week, which ended yesterday, OneWebDay is also working with the Media & Democracy Coalition, which will be nationally releasing a report called “A Public Interest Internet Agenda” on September 22 with support from the U.S. Public Interest Research Group (USPIRG) state chapters.OneWebDay 2008 focused on political participation and civic engagement. But this year’s theme is less about the web as a privilege to be used for social good and more about the web as a public utility on par with electricity and running water – something that should be extended to all citizens to allow them to function in society.“It’s no accident that there was $7.2 billion allocated for broadband in the stimulus bill,” said OneWebDay executive director Nathaniel James.“Everyone understands that the Internet is the pathway to economic opportunity, from educational achievement to success on the job. Even finding and applying for a job requires online skills and access.”James also noted that OneWebDay volunteers were sent into less-wired communities to help create more public Internet access. “This year we are rolling up our sleeves in a big way to install hardware and do trainings that will make a difference right now for people who are getting left behind.”The organization has provided this video on how we as a culture and society can “overcome the digital divide.”last_img read more

Nehru Cup 2012: India hold edge over Maldives

first_imgA victory to start a tournament is always welcome, and if it comes against a higher-ranked opponent, the confidence will only be high. India began their title defence of Nehru Cup with a 2-1 win over Syria and the hosts would be looking to continue the good run against Maldives on Saturday.A familiar foe for the hosts and former SAFF champions, Maldives, too, began their campaign on a bright note, beating Nepal 2-1 in their opener at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium on Thursday.India, however, will hold the edge as they were impressive against the Syrians. Captain Sunil Chhetri has already put up his name on the goal scorers list and the midfield generals looked in good touch.Clifford Miranda, Lenny Rodrigues and Francis Fenandes fed Chhetri well with precise passes and pierced the Syrian defence line time and again.The newly propounded possession football was on display and the players tried hard to string along six-seven short passes, until rain forced them to tweak their style and rely on aerial shots.However, defence remains a concern for the defending champions.Raju Gaikewad will have to raise his level on the right. His under-performance against Syria put more load on the other three Gouramangi Singh, Nirmal Chhetri and Syed Rahim Nabi.With talented striker like Ali Ashfaq on the rivals ranks, the defenders need to tighten up.Against Nepal, the Maldives captain had tormented the defenders with his ability to single-handedly create openings in the front.Two rookies Abdulla Asadhulla and Umair Mohamed impressed on the flanks, and Koeverman’s need to keep a plan ready for the trio. Like India, Maldives also need to shore up its defence. The central defence manned by Abdul Ghani Akram and Mohamed Sifan had some jittery moments against Nepal.Maldives coach Istvan Urbanyi did not want to read too much into Indias win against Syria.Its impossible to comment on India at the moment. Rain played a major role in Indias match against Syria. I just cant draw any comparison between this Indian side and former ones,” he said.In their last meeting at the SAFF Championships here in December, last year, India had defeated Maldives 3-1 but even that record isnt giving Koevermans an absolute confidence.”We got three yellow cards in the first match and that remains a matter of concern. Maldives has some quality players who can create a difference,” he said.Ashfaq has already caught Koevermans attention, but the Indian coach was tight-lipped about whether he was going to mark the striker. He also refrained to comment on any change in India’s starting line-up.He might draw solace from the fact that the Maldives coach is concerned about his teams fitness.”Most of my players have just come after observing a month of Ramadan. Also we had little practice before coming here,” he said.But I am happy with the way the youngsters have played in the first match.advertisementlast_img read more

Spanish media flay Real Madrid after worst La Liga start in five years

first_imgReal Madrid’s first ever trip to Wembley to face Tottenham Hotspur in the Champions League on Wednesday will come as a welcome distraction to the European and Liga holders in the midst of their worst domestic run of results in five years.Sunday’s shock 2-1 defeat to Liga newcomers Girona saw them fall eight points behind arch rivals Barcelona in the standings, the biggest gap they have faced with a league leader since their final turbulent campaign under Jose Mourinho in 2012/13.??? FP: @GironaFC 2-1 #RealMadrid (Stuani 54′, Portu 58′; @isco_alarcon 12′).#RMLiga Real Madrid C.F. (@realmadrid) October 29, 2017Madrid were also defending champions in the Portuguese’s final campaign but came unstuck at the start of the season, dropping eight points in their first four games while Barcelona raced ahead, eventually finishing 15 clear of Madrid while Mourinho had an acrimonious split with the dressing room.The feeling in the Spanish sports press after Zinedine Zidane’s side threw away a 1-0 lead at halftime was one of resignation about Madrid’s faltering campaign, as the 32-times Liga champions have never managed to win the title after falling eight points behind the leaders.”Madrid vote no to La Liga”, ran a headline on the website of daily newspaper Marca, alluding to the political undertones of Sunday’s game at Girona, Real’s first trip to the troubled region of Catalonia since a banned referendum on independence on Oct. 1 sparked Spain’s worst political crisis in 39 years.Only Madrid’s goalscorer Isco and forward Karim Benzema were exempt from criticism in Marca, which criticised the team’s usual talisman Cristiano Ronaldo for only scoring once this campaign and called out Marcelo, Toni Kroos, Luka Modric and captain Sergio Ramos for unconvincing displays.advertisementPhoto Credit: Reuters “Isco is out on his own”, ran the cover of newspaper AS, while daily ABC described Madrid as “apathetic”, calling the defeat the team’s worst performance since Zidane took over at the club in January 2016 and began a winning cycle that has yielded seven trophies.The French coach said Real had lost the game due to two lapses of concentration in the space of four minutes which lead to Cristhian Stuani’s equaliser and Portu’s winner, but denied there was a problem with the team’s attitude.”What I’m most annoyed about is not killing the game off when we had the chance to do it,” the coach said in a news conference after Girona snapped Real’s record run of 13 consecutive away wins over the course of two seasons.”I’m not worried about a lack of intensity nor enthusiasm, these results can happen in the league but we’ll keep on working hard. I’m not worried. We didn’t expect this after winning four games in a row but we still want to win the league.”last_img read more
