AS Monaco have announced the signing of midfielder Aleksandr Golovin from CSKA Moscow in a €30m dealThe Russia international impressed at the World Cup this summer and proved to be an important member of the side that reached the quarter-finals of the competition for the first time in 48 years.Golovin has been linked with a move to Chelsea over the past couple of months, but he has instead opted for the French Riviera with Monaco vice-president Vadim Vasilyev suggesting that they could offer the 22-year-old something their rivals could not – regular playing time.“Monaco and CSKA this afternoon finally agreed on the transfer of Golovin,” said Vasilyev, according to Metro.“They really were complicated. Honestly, until the last moment I was not sure that I would be able to coordinate this transfer.’Chelsea hat-trick hero Tammy Abraham hopes for more Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Tammy Abraham hopes this season will be his big breakthrough at Chelsea after firing his first hat-trick for the club in Saturday’s 5-2 win at Wolves.“In addition to Chelsea, there was Juventus for Golovin. In early May this year I heard from one the leaders of the Turin club that Aleksandr’s transfer to their team was a done deal.“However, our main competitor was Chelsea. I believe Monaco offered more favourable conditions for the club and a more understandable sports project for Golovin. Chelsea – this is a top club, which I treat with great respect. However, the midfield in the English team is overloaded.“In my opinion, Golovin will definitely play in any of the leading clubs in the world. But it will him some time, a transition stage.”Golovin is expected to sign a five-year contract with the Ligue 1 club.
Royton Town had gone to play Stockport Georgians on Saturday without a complete squad.They had told their host they included one of their regular’s father to make up for their incomplete squad, and they spoke of no one else but Paul Scholes.No one was expecting to see someone of Scholes’ type playing in the 11th tier of English football, but it happened that the unexpected came to pass.Scholes: Paul Pogba will be forgiven at Man United Andrew Smyth – August 10, 2019 Manchester United legend Paul Scholes believes Paul Pogba’s comments of wanting a new challenge is nothing to fret about.Scholes played for the manager of Royton, Mark Howard after he was invited to come and fill up the team’s incomplete number.According to BBC, Howard had this to say: “We had eight or nine of our senior players missing and Paul said he’d be happy to help out if we were ever short as his son Arron plays for us.“It’s great for the league. He raises the level of those around him by 10-15% and opponents don’t want to look stupid in front of him.”
August 3, 2019 Posted: August 3, 2019 KUSI Newsroom ENCINITAS (KUSI) – Two of the three victims in Friday’s deadly cliff collapse in the Leucadia neighborhood of Encinitas were identified today as a mother and daughter.The women were identified as Julie Davis, 65, and Anne Clave, 35, according to the San Diego County Medical Examiner’s Office. The identity of the third victim, who died at the scene, has not been released pending notification of relatives.Clave, from Encinitas, died at Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla on Friday. Davis died at Scripps Memorial Hospital Encinitas, also on Friday.The bluff failure happened shortly before 3 p.m. Friday just north of a lifeguard station, Encinitas fire and lifeguard officials said at a news conference Saturday morning.Officials reopened Grandview Surf Beach before noon Saturday with signs posted to the north and south of the cliff collapse asking the public to keep out of the “active area,” Lifeguard Capt. Larry Giles said.City officials recommended that “given the apparent natural bluff instability, beachgoers should avoid areas near or under the bluffs and keep a recommended safe distance of 25 to 40 feet.”Four search dogs went through the site of the collapse late Friday and officials determined that no more people had been found, Encinitas Fire Deputy Chief Robert Ford said.Two people walked away uninjured after the collapse, Giles said.A lifeguard was in the tower next to the site of the cliff collapse and immediately began to rescue victims. Some good Samaritans helped the lifeguard in the rescue effort, Giles said. The lifeguard tower has since been moved away from the part of the cliff that collapsed.Experts in geology will continue assessing the coastline for any potential collapse threats. Geotech soil engineers said Friday’s failure was an isolated incident, Giles said, and unrelated to the recent earthquakes in Southern California. The failure isn’t affecting structures at the top of the cliffs, he said.“Our coastline is a beautiful area, but the coastline is eroding,” Giles said.

Mentioned Above Nest Hello Get Adobe Photoshop Elements 2019 and Premiere Elements 2019 for $100Sure, you can do some basic photo and video editing on your phone, but mobile apps will take you only so far. For more detailed work, you need a PC and capable software.Here you go: For a limited time, Amazon is offering Adobe Photoshop Elements 2019 and Premiere Elements 2019 (for Windows and Mac) for $100. Regular price: $150.See it at AmazonPhotoshop Elements is like the junior version of Photoshop, the 800-pound gorilla of image editors. It’s designed to help you organize, manage, fix, enhance and share your photos.Now, I’m the first to point out that you can accomplish Photoshop-level image editing with free tools like Gimp and Paint.NET. Those programs have fairly steep learning curves, however. They’re not what I would call consumer-friendly. Photoshop Elements has a learning curve, too, but it’s definitely more guided, more intuitive.As for Premiere Elements, it’s a pretty powerful consumer-level video editor. With it you can import clips from just about any source and turn your footage into a polished, professional-looking movie. There are some negative reviews from Amazon buyers, but look closely: Most of those came from folks who didn’t follow the license-redemption instructions properly — or thought they were buying Photoshop proper.Get a $100 iTunes gift card for $85Do you spend a lot on iTunes?

It usually sells for $229.Here’s the most important thing to know about the Nest Hello: It’s CNET’s favorite video doorbell, beating out the likes of the August View Doorbell Camera and Ring Video Doorbell 2. Read our full Nest Hello review to learn why.As is common (unfortunately) with many smart doorbells, this one requires a monthly subscription to really get the most from it. Although Nest stores a three-hour video history at no extra charge, it’s probably a good idea to get Nest Aware, which for $5 per month stores a five-day video history.That subscription also nets you extras like activity zones (which let you limit motion detection to, say, just the porch area, so you don’t get a bunch of alerts every time a car drives by) and person and facial recognition.For what it’s worth, I’m currently testing a less expensive video doorbell that’s similar in design and offers free cloud storage, but it’s nowhere near as versatile as the Nest Hello. The latter is not only CNET’s top pick, but also a top-rated choice among users: Everywhere I look, I see average ratings of anywhere from 4.6 stars to 5 stars. (Seriously, check out Lowe’s: 5.0 average from over 2,300 buyers!)Assuming you’re going to end up paying some kind of monthly fee for cloud storage and whatnot, you might as well get the best deal you can on the hardware.

It’s that time of year again where Porsche fanatics from all over the world gather in Southern California to celebrate Dr. Porsche’s magnificent machines. Luftgekuhlt is mostly a big party for 911 and 356 lovers, but all kinds of race cars show up, too.My favorite Porsche racing car is one that often gets forgotten when people start tossing around numbers like 917 and 935. It’s the 962 race cars of the 1980s and 1990s. These long, wide and low machines remained dominant in sports car racing much longer than just about anything else, and Porsche would have a lot fewer Le Mans wins without it.The 962 had kind of a weird childhood. It was designed at the last minute as a response to a rule change by the American racing organization IMSA. Explicitly, this change stated that a driver’s feet had to be located behind the car’s front axles and that made Porsche’s current world-beating sports prototype, the 956, ineligible. Car Culture 2020 BMW M340i review: A dash of M makes everything better Porsche The 956 was introduced in 1982 as a replacement for Porsche’s 936 open-top race car. It was a savagely fast automobile, setting a lap record for the Nurburgring Nordschleife that stood from 1984 until 2018. It was also the first car to use Porsche’s PDK gearbox. The overall package of the 956 was incredibly successful, winning Le Mans outright four years in a row.That shows why Porsche, when updating the chassis to the 962 didn’t change an awful lot and why the two cars are pretty tough to tell apart when sitting next to one another. The Porsche 962 ran in several engine configurations during its long career, but it was always powered by a turbocharged flat-six engine and produced upward of 700 horsepower in some trims.The 962 models that ran in IMSA have a special place in my heart, as they are purely air-cooled and feature a massive scoop on the rear deck. Other versions, including the Le Mans-winning 962C, either featured water-cooled cylinder heads or were water-cooled entirely.So, if you’re unable to make it to Universal Studios’ backlot for Luftgekuhlt 6 today, kick back and enjoy some videos of one of the most dominant racecars the world has ever seen.

(PhysOrg.com) — Micro-Star International (MSI) revealed voice control via motherboard at the Intel Developer Conference. The MSI demo showed how its add-on PCIe x1 card can add voice control to selected Sandy Bridge motherboards that feature the JDLED3 connector. MSI voice software that is part of this approach is called Voice Genie. The Voice Genie software can be used to set up reliable recognition of the user’s voice and can set up the actual voice commands to perform tasks.

Citation: MSI shows voice-controlled motherboard approach at IDF (2011, September 19) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2011-09-msi-voice-controlled-motherboard-approach-idf.html The software tracks the user’s voice patterns so that control functions can be set in motion. The result of the MSI voice-activated-motherboard approach is that a user can instruct the PC to turn on or turn off just by saying certain words.Theo Valich of Bright Side of News provided one example of an MSI voice-control setup, if using the MSI Big Bang motherboard: To get the PC up and running, the user says ‘MSI Big Bang Power On,’ and to shut it down the user goes into reverse, to say ‘Power Off MSI Big Bang’ but one can always customixze the commands. The only restriction in coming up with a customized instruction is to keep the reverse structure of phrasings for your “on” and “off” (Big Bang…On, Power Off…Bang).The price for the add-on and a release date were not yet available, though MSI said the voice-control module would be more than affordable. MSI has actually been working on its voice-activated motherboard technology for several years, according to reports. MSI, a leading motherboard and graphics card manufacturer, is not the first to innovate voice-command functions for PCs. Microsoft has done substantial work with speech recognition. Windows carries speech recognition and there is much talk about how Windows 8 will recognize various speech commands. Tellme, the speech technology corps at Microsoft, is working with other Microsoft teams to push the advancement of speech recognition further. Nonetheless, what is special about the MSI approach is that is takes voice control beyond the operating system. In addition to the voice control demo, MSI unveiled a lineup of new motherboards at the IDF event.The three newcomers are based on the X79 chipset.
September 8, 2014 Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box. 3 min read Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global Nothing lasts forever, gadgets included. Whether we accidentally spill liquid on them, drop them or they finally give in to wear and tear, in time and without question, all of our beloved electronics will eventually let us down, workplace devices included. So the question isn’t when will your gadget’s day of reckoning come, rather, it’s what will you do when it does? Will you suck it up and pay to fix it? Or will you ditch it and buy a new one?Deciding can be a tough nut to crack, especially if you’re too busy to crunch the repair vs. replace cost-benefit numbers. Instead, stick with this simple rule of thumb: If the expense of replacing the broken item is more than twice the cost of repairing it, it’s probably best to repair it, according to Lexicon Technologies, a technology maintenance company and the creator of the helpful infographic on the topic below.Tablet lovers, you’re in luck. Tablets are generally worth fixing if the cost of repairs doesn’t exceed $210, Lexicon reports. Replacing a broken tablet with a new one will likely cost you double, typically around $420. Is a new tablet really worth it? Probably not if you have to replace more than a few for butterfingered employees. (You know who you are.)Related: 6 Ways to Extend Your iPhone Batter Life After Updating to iOS 7.1Now for the biggie, the almighty smartphone. As satirical British street artist Banksy recently (and quite sinisterly) illustrated, we’re basically at peak smartphone addiction. Some of us even sleep with our cells more than we do our lovers. Should our precious phone croak, we (yours truly included) often fly into a panic and replace it straight away, without so much as budgeting or shopping around for a good deal and that’s no bueno. Why not? Repairing an ailing smartphone is typically a smarter money move than getting a new one. So much for that shiny, new iPhone 6, huh? The average price of replacing a smartphone is about $500 these days, whereas fixing one usually costs between $50 and $150. Switching to bigger electronics now, it’s generally best to replace desktop computers, ideally every three to four years. On the other hand, laptops are generally more cost effective to repair, while desktop printers are cheap enough to simply replace when they kick the bucket.Related: Long Live Your Laptop BatteryFor detailed side-by-side repair vs. replace comparisons for all of the above mentioned electronics and more, check out the infographic below.

Free Webinar | Sept 5: Tips and Tools for Making Progress Toward Important Goals April 20, 2017 Where you go, Google goes. If you have location services turned on, Google Maps keeps track of every step you (and your smartphone) take. You can also share your location with anyone in real time on iOS and Android.Depending on your settings, all this activity is archived in your Google Timeline. The feature, introduced in 2015, can be a walk down memory lane, but it can also leave the door to your privacy wide open. With Timeline, not only can Google Maps show you where you’re going, but where you’ve been. There might also be photographic evidence since Timeline syncs with any shots uploaded to Google Photos.If you’ve turned on location services, Google is constantly pinging your phone from cell towers and Wi-Fi and using GPS to see where you are. The frequency with which it finds you can be every few minutes or every few seconds, painting a pretty accurate picture of where you are at all times.If this all seems less helpful and more harmful, you can remove your location history and tell Google to quit it already and stop following you. Here’s how.AndroidWhen you upgrade to the latest version of Google Maps, and check out your Timeline (Hamburger icon > Your timeline), Google will ask you to turn on Location History. You can then check out where you’ve been. I signed in on a borrowed Galaxy Note 4, so the only thing it had tracked was my location at the office.If you’d rather not have your Android phone tracking your location, go back to Your timeline and tap on the three dots on the upper-right corner.Select Timeline SettingsScroll down to Location Settings.Tap “Location History is on.”A pop-up window will appear; tap the checkmark next to “On”Tap “OK” on the window that appears.(You can also navigate to Hamburger icon > Settings > Google Location Settings > Location and toggle it to off.)You can also get rid of everything under “Delete All Location History.” A pop-up will warn you that everything is about to be deleted, which might affect how Google Now and other apps that use Location History work. If that’s OK with you, check the box next to “I understand and want to delete” and then Delete.Apple iOSGoogle only just brought Timeline to Apple devices. Like on Android, select the hamburger menu and tap Your timeline. There you’ll see recent locations (or nothing if you have it turned off or limited).If you want to wipe a location out of your history, tap the three dots on the top right and “Delete the day.” You can also navigate to Settings > Maps History and tap the “X” next to a location you want to delete.To get rid of absolutely everything, go to Settings > Personal Content > Delete All Location History, acknowledge this is what you want to do, and click Delete.In order for Google to populate the Timeline section of your app, you’ll need to turn on location tracking in the background. On your iPhone, go to Settings > Privacy > Location Services > Google Maps > Always. To only enable location tracking while you’re using the app (not in the background), select “While Using the App.” This can be helpful if you want the phone to remember where you’ve been for future searches but not be constantly tracking you.WebYou can also clear your history from a desktop. Go to Google Maps and sign in to your account. Select Menu and then Your Timeline. You’ll see every place you’ve been while Google Maps has been with you.You can delete just one day by selecting the day on the top left and clicking the garbage can icon.To delete your entire location history, go to the Timeline, click the gear icon on the right side of the screen and select “Delete all Location History.” Like on mobile, a pop-up will ask you if you really want to do that. If so, check the box next to “I understand and want to delete all Location History” and then “Delete Location History.” Attend this free webinar and learn how you can maximize efficiency while getting the most critical things done right.

Categories: Farrington News 02Jul Farrington announces road project in Utica An important road improvement project for Utica will begin soon thanks to additional funding set aside by the Michigan Legislature, announced state Rep. Jeff Farrington.Farrington, R-Utica, said the project makes necessary and needed repairs to Auburn Road from M-59 to the Utica city line.“Residents of our community reached out to me about the importance of prioritizing roads, and I have been working to ensure the project at Auburn Road becomes a reality,” Farrington said. “It is exciting to announce that Auburn Road will receive these necessary repairs and improve the commute for local families.”Farrington said many local residents reached out about fixing Auburn Road, and he fought hard to ensure that their voices were heard.In addition to the Auburn Road project, there are another five projects totaling nearly $4.5 million that repair or fix roads in Macomb County.“However, Michigan’s roads and bridges were neglected for too long, and we need to continue to work on a plan that will result in a long-lasting, permanent solution for Michigan’s roads,” Farrington said. “I will continue to meet with local residents to receive input so I can bring a plan that focuses on fairness, efficiency and quality back to Lansing.”For the fiscal year 2014 budget, the Michigan Legislature created a special fund using $230 million in existing state revenue, half of which was appropriated on Oct 1. with the rest now being appropriated.###
