Bruce hits back at Stoke

first_img He said: “Let me tell you, Stephen Ireland committed the worst challenge on the pitch on Davd Meyler. He shouldn’t have been on the pitch if the referee had done his job. It was an awful challenge. “I could show you a picture of Figueroa’s ankle, he had five stitches in it and carried on. Nobody wants to see a cut or an injury as bad as Stephen Ireland had but unfortunately in football it happens. “Everybody is wearing the boots called blades and the challenge on Ireland he’s kicked the ball and followed through and unfortunately has caught his leg. “At the time nobody went to the referee, he didn’t award a free-kick – it wasn’t a free-kick but one of those horrible ones where he’s followed through and caught the boy on the calf rather than planted the boot on him.” Bruce’s Hull entertain Sunderland on Tuesday night with the Tigers boss enjoying the whip hand over his former club, where fans made much of his tenure a misery due to his Newcastle affiliations. Hull have won all four matches against the Black Cats under Bruce and a fifth would see the Tigers open up a four-point gap over their rivals that would do much to help their climb away from the relegation zone. Bruce admitted: “It is a pivotal game. Our better goal difference would mean it is the equivalent of five points and would give us a good cushion above the bottom three.” Hull will need to add some firepower after failing to manage a shot on target against Stoke, but should have Nikica Jelavic back after he missed the last match with a flare-up of his nagging knee problem. “We were disappointed with the whole team going forward against Stoke,” added Bruce. “I don’t think we were adventurous enough, but I can’t remember my keeper making a save either. It was one of those awful, horrible games where the paying public was probably bored out of their pants but that happens sometimes.” Press Association Stoke manager Mark Hughes claimed the challenge could have ended Ireland’s career and that Figueroa should have been sent off – the injury needed 12 to 15 stitches. Bruce, speaking ahead of Hull’s home match against Sunderland, disputed that claim and insisted it was Ireland himself who should have been given his marching orders for an earlier challenge. center_img Hull boss Steve Bruce has hit back at Stoke after a gory picture emerged of a bloody gash in Stephen Ireland’s leg following a challenge by Tigers defender Maynor Figueroa. last_img read more

New Federal Rules Would Make Your Biometric Data Internet-Accessible

first_imgBiometric thumbprint via Shutterstock. A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… christina ortiz Tags:#Internet of Things#web Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Anyone can tell you that the future of information is in Web-based services like the cloud. Who would’ve thought, though, that this would also apply to the biological information that identifies who you are?The National Institutes of Standards and Technology (NIST) developed a protocol for the capturing and storage of biometric information. Biometric authentication, otherwise know as ‘biometrics’, is used to identify people using iris scans, fingerprints and facial recognition. The protocol would allow any Internet-enabled mobile device to access the information captured by sensors through a Web service, similar to the way Netflix streams movies to devices. Doing this simplifies the process of providing and collecting identity information because it doesn’t rely on different devices to store it, just one controlled Web service platform. Currently this information is stored through proprietary devices, making it impossible to share it among different platforms.So, if you don’t work for a super secret government agency, what does this have to do with you? Biometrics is something people use on a daily basis, whether they know it or not. Think about office spaces that require keycards for entry, if all of the information stored in that card was on a cloud-based service instead, it would make it more cost-effective for companies to implement better security.  Even theme parks could implement this protocol for employee access to restricted areas. If the NIST’s plan to bring this service to market goes through, a more relatable example would be the check-in desk at your local gym. Most gyms use barcode emblazoned key tags or cards to identify who you are, some even use thumbprint scanners. With this protocol, one could scan their phone on the sensor just as quickly as they would with a key tag. If protocols like this are implemented, the future of identification may not be too far away. The NIST is currently working with the Small Business Innovations Research Program to have devices built within two years. Want to get more technical? Check out the video below for an in-depth description of how the NIST new protocol will work.  Related Posts 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic…last_img read more

Arunachal civil servant given ‘compulsory retirement’ for sexual assault on minor

first_imgThe Arunachal Pradesh government has given ‘compulsory retirement’ to a senior civil servant as punishment for sexual assault on an 11-year-old girl.The State’s Tax and Excise Joint Commissioner Tani Jongkey was served the retirement order on August 12 with immediate effect under the Central Civil Services (Classification, Control and Appeal) Rules, 1965.The order from the office of the Chief Secretary said that Mr. Jongkey did not provide “any new and convincing evidence in his defence for consideration and, as such, the charges against the erring officer were found to be proved beyond reasonable doubt.”The order said that the Arunachal Pradesh Governor imposed the penalty after examining “all documents placed on record and after being totally convinced with the recommendation of the inquiry officer and keeping in view the sensitivity and seriousness of the matter and grave misconduct committed by the delinquent officer”.The State police had booked the civil servant under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act (POCSO) after he was accused of assaulting the minor on June 2, 2017. He was placed under suspension 20 days later but the Itanagar Bench of the Gauhati High Court reinstated him on November 21 that year as his suspension order was not reviewed within a specified period.An officer assigned to probe the charges against Mr. Jongkey later found him to have indulged in “misconduct and misbehaviour” with the minor girl. The inquiry officer accordingly recommended imposition of strict and exemplary punishment against Mr. Jongkey under relevant sections of the rules governing civil servants.Officials said Mr. Jongkey was on November 6, 2018, given an opportunity to submit his counter to the inquiry officer’s recommendation within 15 days.‘Unprecedented penalty’“The penalty levied on a senior civil servant in Arunachal Pradesh is unprecedented. It sends an unequivocal message that the safety and security of women and children is top priority for the government and not negotiable,” State’s Secretary of Tax and Excise Anirudh Saran Singh told reporters in Itanagar.The Arunachal Pradesh Women’s Welfare Society, which had sought justice for the child, welcomed the government’s “path-breaking” action against Mr. Jongkey. A member said that the minor’s mother had received threats from community leaders, officers and politicians to withdraw the case.last_img read more

Indiana Basketball Fans Have Launched TomCreanBuyout.com

first_imgWebsite devoted to Tom Crean's buyout.Tom Crean has put together a very talented Hoosiers roster, but many fans aren’t thrilled with the results. Crean took over a program that was hit hard by NCAA violations under head coach Kelvin Sampson, and went 28-66 in his first three years in Bloomington, before leading IU back to the NCAA Tournament in 2011-12 and 2012-13, when it reached back to back Sweet Sixteens. Crean’s program was a disappointing 17-15 last season, and is 19-11 this season, and right on the cusp of the NCAA Tournament. We’ve seen unhappy fans launch websites calling for coaches’ jobs before, but the unhappy Indiana fans have taken a bit of a different approach. Someone has launched www.tomcreanbuyout.com, which provides information on the cost to buyout Crean’s large contract. http://www.tomcreanbuyout.com/http://www.tomcreanbuyout.com/Indiana is set to bring back most of its roster next year, barring possible NBA Draft departures, and stand a solid shot at making this year’s NCAA Tournament. We expect Crean to be back, but it is certainly understandable why Hoosier fans’ patience is running short.last_img read more
