Chelsea man ‘considering offers from Brazil’

first_imgChelsea’s Florent Malouda is considering an offer from Brazilian club Botafogo, the Daily Mirror report.The 32-year-old Frenchman, who has a Brazilian wife, is said to be weighing up several offers, with his first-team chances at Stamford Bridge looking likely to be limited.It is claimed that he is also wanted by another Brazilian club, Vasco Da Gama, where his ex-Lyon team-mate Juninho Pernambucano plays.The Daily Mail say QPR are poised to loan out Joey Barton, with Blackburn Rovers leading the chase.It is suggested that R’s boss Mark Hughes sees a loan to the Championship – where there is a greater volume of league games over the early part of the season – as an ideal way to run down Barton’s 12-match ban quickly.Nottingham Forest are also said to be interested in the controversial midfielder.Meanwhile, The Sun say Craig Bellamy is set to snub Cardiff and sign for QPR from Liverpool, whereas The Independent believe he will choose to join the Bluebirds. The 33-year-old striker, who played under Hughes for Blackburn and Wales, has been tipped to leave Anfield this summer.This page is regularly updated.Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

Gaming in the Cloud: OnLive Launches Tomorrow

first_imgOnLive, the cloud-based gaming service founded by Apple alum Steve Perlman launches tomorrow. The service hopes to mark a monumental shift in the way gaming works: no more downloads, no more patches, no more discs. Instead of running a video game locally, players on OnLive connect via broadband to a gaming system that runs and stores not just their data, but the entire game itself. OnLive enables video games to be played on Mac or PC and, using their “micro console device” on your TV.In a world where “lag” – latency due to Internet or graphics hiccups – means “death,” there have been a lot of obstacles to overcome in order to make cloud-based gaming feasible. Some eight years in development, OnLive’s vision of instant-access, on-demand gaming has necessitated huge tech developments in both the servers’ and in the broadband capabilities. The machines required to run these games, for example, have to have graphics capabilities not typically associated with servers. According to Venture Beat, the service will limit players’ access, depending on their location from a server and the processing power of their computer, in order to ensure gameplay that’s, well, playable.According to CEO Perlman, the launch marks “the first step toward a future where video game content is increasingly free from the restrictions of device and location, while showcasing the ability to instantly play the latest, most advanced games at the touch of a button.”OnLive promises over twenty games available at launch, including Prince of Persia, Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell, and Mass Effect 2. For a limited time, founding subscribers are being offered their first year of OnLive membership for free in a program sponsored by AT&T.

The Wizards also traded away Kelly Oubre Jr. and Austin Rivers while adding Ariza.“Our team is totally different from the beginning of the year,” said Beal, who scored 30 or more for the 10th time this season. “It’s just a matter of us getting it together, and I think we’re finally at that point to where we can turn the corner.“We’re just dedicated to playing hard and playing the right way.

Kings Shut Down Knicks, 88-80

first_imgNEW YORK  — DeMarcus Cousins battled Robin Lopez all night and even shoved away a security guard at halftime.Cousins and the Sacramento Kings were looking for a good fight, and without Carmelo Anthony, the New York Knicks couldn’t provide one.Cousins had 24 points and 20 rebounds, and the Kings had their best defensive performance of the season March 20 in an 88-80 victory.The Kings, who came in allowing a league-worst 109.6 points per game, easily surpassed their previous best of 88 points allowed, shutting down a Knicks team that played without its leading scorer.“It was not a stellar basketball game, but for us to get a win on the road is always a happy place,” Kings coach George Karl said.Cousins emerged the winner in a good big-man duel with Lopez, who finished with 23 points and a career-high 20 rebounds.“That was a fun battle,” Cousins said. “You really don’t get a chance to see those type of battles with the bigs anymore, it’s so much of a guard game. We battled for a full game so it was a lot of fun.”Cousins played through his usual frustrations with the officiating and even a security guard, pushing him after he bumped into Cousins while Rajon Rondo was trying to separate his teammate from the officials at midcourt.“Actually I think he was trying to remove me from talking to the refs, so he kind of put his hand on my back and tried to move me forward,” Cousins said. “So I don’t think it was that big of an issue, honestly.”New York fell to 0-8 this season without Anthony, who was still bothered by symptoms of a migraine that he began suffering from March 19 in a loss at Washington.Jerian Grant scored 14 points and Kristaps Porzingis had 13 for the Knicks in their first home game since March 5 after going 2-4 on their longest road trip in terms of games in 10 years.Interim coach Kurt Rambis said the Knicks appeared sluggish when they arrived earlier after the long trip, and that appeared to carry over into the start of the game. The Knicks managed just 5-for-22 shooting and 12 points in the first quarter, falling behind by 16.“We had three quarters of scoring under 20 points that had a lot to do with, to me, guys looked tired,” Rambis said. “There are a lot of shots that our guys normally get, normally make, but when their legs are tired, they’re just short.”New York came right back with 35 points in the second, cutting the Kings’ lead to 50-47. But it was too much Cousins and the Kings in the fourth quarter.Rudy Gay scored 17 points for the Kings, who won for just the second time in nine games.(BRIAN MAHONEY, AP Basketball Writer)TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

Cypress: support for Platform Security Architecture Trusted Firmware-M from Arm

first_imgCypress Semiconductor announced availability of the Platform Security Architecture Trusted Firmware-M reference example from Arm for its PSoC 6 microcontrollers, enabling a solution that adheres to the highest level of protection as defined by PSA. By leveraging PSA’s holistic set of threat models, security analyses, hardware and firmware architecture specifications, and Trusted Firmware-M reference implementation, Internet of Things designers can quickly and easily implement secure designs with PSoC 6 MCUs.Cypress’ PSoC 6 MCUs achieve the highest level of protection defined by the PSA using dual Arm Cortex-M cores combined with configurable memory and peripheral protection units. The MCUs provide three levels of hardware-based isolation: 1) an isolated execution environment for trusted applications using a dedicated Arm Cortex -M0+ core, 2) secure element functionality that hosts root of trust operations and system services, and 3) isolation for each trusted application. These three levels of isolation together reduce the attack surface for threats. The system is augmented with a true random number generator and cryptographic accelerators, while the Cortex-M4 core in the PSoC 6 MCU architecture delivers a clean programming model for the rich execution environment for unsecure applications.Aligned with Arm’s current version for v8-M, the Trusted Firmware-M reference example for PSoC 6 MCUs allows designers to easily implement hardware-based isolation between secure and unsecure execution environments via configuration of the protection units. Mbed OS secure services can be utilized. Future versions will include trusted boot with multiple images and full PSA API support, including Root of Trust installation with secure element functionality.Share this:TwitterFacebookLinkedInMoreRedditTumblrPinterestWhatsAppSkypePocketTelegram Tags: Chips & Components Continue Reading Previous Infineon expands mobile-security portfolioNext HCC Embedded: MISRA-compliant EAP framework for secure IoT networkslast_img read more

Govt walks the talk Imposes 100 penalty for accepting cash above Rs

first_imgHere comes the next in the series of the government’s crackdown to discourage the use of cash in large amounts: If you receive anything above Rs 3 lakh in cash, be prepared to pay a penalty of an equal amount, effective from April 1. Warburg Pincus acquires airline services group AccelyaOn February 1, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley had proposed in the Budget that “no person shall receive an amount of Rs 3 lakh or more by way of cash in aggregate from a person in a day; in respect of a single transaction; or in respect of transactions relating to one event or occasion from a person.” Now, Revenue Secretary Hasmukh Adhia has said that the penalty for doing cash transaction will be steep and the receiver will have to pay an amount equivalent to the cash received.”Supposing you do a transaction of Rs 4 lakh in cash, then the penalty would be Rs 4 lakh. If you do a transaction of Rs 50 lakh, the penalty would be Rs 50 lakh,” Adhia told PTI. Interestingly, the fine will be paid by the receiver, not by the one who pays. So, if a shopkeeper sells an expensive watch for cash, it is the shopkeeper who will have to pay the penalty.However, governments, banking companies, post offices and co-operative banks will remain immune to this restriction. The revenue secretary said the previously notified rule of quoting PAN for any cash transaction above Rs 2 lakh stays. Meanwhile, private sector lender HDFC Bank has announced steep hikes in fees on cash transactions. The bank has limited third-party cash transactions to Rs 25,000 per day and free cash transactions at branches have been reduced to four from five earlier. Additionally, the fee on non-free transactions has been hiked by a steep 50% to Rs 150. The bank has also revised free cash transactions at home branches, including deposits and withdrawals at branches, at Rs 2 lakh, above which customers will have to pay a minimum of Rs 150 or Rs 5 per thousand. Earlier, the bank allowed Rs 50,000 cash transactions, both withdrawals and deposits, per day. These new measures will be applicable from March 1 and would apply to salary and savings account holders.last_img read more
