Jakov Gojun Croatia have bigger potential than Denmark and France

← Previous Story Denmark to host Golden League with three Olympic medal winners Next Story → SG Flensburg to play two matches in one day!? One of the best defensive players in world of handball, Croatian Jakov Gojun from Fuchse Berlin, talked for Balkan-Handball.com about dissapointment after Olympic quarter-final defeat against Poland, but also a huge potential which Croatia have in his opinion:The thing which hurt me most is that we beat Denmark and France, and after it we didn’t win a medal. That was one of the toughest defeats in my career. It was tough to leave Rio when you knew how much you gave for that, worked whole summer, without family. It was horrible. I don’t feel good even now when I am talking about it – said Gojun who also praised Poland:When you beat someone 15 goals in front of 15.000 their fans in Krakow, then of course, it is tough to not underestimate, but we didn’t. We knew how experienced is that group of players, that they won EHF Champions League few months ago, who is Talant. I know Talant very well, we worked together in Madrid. He doesn’t want to lose in any single practice on training. We began bad, couldn’t make foul on Bielecki who find the shooting form in right moment with some unbeliavable goals at the end. It’s pity. We had a big chance to win another Olympic medal.What about future…We have a big raiting and people expect from us to fight for the medals. We aren’t serious team if we don’t quality for the semi-final. We are aware of that, but we have a lot of youngstars who have to find themselves in the national team. We have a huge potential, bigger than France and Denmark. The World Championship 2017 is ahead of us, and I have one dream – to make revenge to France, as they beat us in Zagreb 2009 at the final – concluded Fuchse Berlin defender, Jakov Gojun.  Jakov Gojun read more

Starbucks iPhone and Blackberry mobile payment system goes national

first_imgStarbucks have been busy working on more than just a Trenta super enlarged drink cup. The coffee company has finished testing its new mobile payment system (which was first introduced back in September 2009) and is now confident it is ready to go national. In total Starbucks is looking at launching the program to around 6,800 stores and 1,000 outlets dotted around the U.S.Currently the app is only available on iPhone and Blackberry devices, but an Android version shouldn’t be too  far away. It works by displaying a bar code that can be scanned at the register when you are ready to purchase your items, you will also be able to find nearby stores and manage your account through the app.AdChoices广告It seems that the service is already proven popular during its test phase, as one in five Starbucks transactions are handled through the mobile/Starbucks card system.Because you normally see so many phones at Starbucks the new payment system kind of makes sense, especially as research conducted by Starbucks revealed that from its millions of customers 75% of them either use an iPhone or Blackberry.Read more at The Seattle Timeslast_img read more

Google Doodle honors John James Audubons 226th birthday

first_imgA visit to Google’s homepage today will greet you with a new Google Doodle. Today’s doodle celebrates the 226th birthday of bird enthusiast John James Audubon. The doodle isn’t as clear as some of the others in the past, and almost takes a Magic Eye approach to see all the individual letters represented by birds of prey, songbirds, and an owl that spell out the word “Google.”Born in 1785 in what is now Haiti, at age 18 Audubon was sent to a family-owned estate near Philadelphia to avoid being sent into Napoleon’s army. There, he conducted his first bird experiment. This experiment, which entailed tying strings to the legs of birds, led Audubon to determine if the birds returned to the same nesting places each year.Audubon spent time on the Mississippi River drawing various bird portraits until he had a collection good enough to take over to England. In 1826, his collection, called “The American Woodsman,” was an overnight success. The book’s popularity led to a collaboration with Scottish ornithologist William MacGillvray. The two worked on the Ornithological Biographies, a book that detailed the life histories of each of the birds in the work .He took an an exhibition of his work to Britain where it received rave reviews and helped him raise the money to publish Birds of America, a massive collection that cataloged and detailed almost 500 species.Audubon died at the age of 65 in New York City. It wasn’t until 1905 that the Audubon Society was created by George Bird Grinnell, who was tutored by Audubon’s widow, and named the association in honor of the great bird enthusiast.If a Google Doodle isn’t enough to honor the man, Audubon was quoted by Charles Darwin in On the Origin of Species, which is quite the honor.last_img read more

3DS game Resident Evil Revelations gets rated for Xbox 360 and PS3

first_imgResident Evil: Revelations only came out on the 3DS at the start of this year, but it seems it could be coming to both Xbox 360 and PS3 soon, too.The revelation (sorry) comes after the Korean Ratings Board rated the game for both Sony and Microsoft’s consoles – suggesting the game could already be ported over from the 3DS. It’s not unusual for Capcom to re-release and port games from console-to-console, but it’s quite surprising this one is happening so soon.Revelations is much more of a classic Resident Evil game in terms of gameplay, centred around survival horror rather than the more recent RE games for PS3 and Xbox 360 Best Price at Amazon . Revelations is set between the RE 4 and 5 games, with the story revolving around Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine plus two new characters, Parker and Jessica. The story switches between the different characters and the gameplay focuses on puzzle solving and exploring. As well as the main story there’s also an extra game mode called Raid Mode, which allows you and a friend to battle hoards of zombies together.Capcom have yet to confirm Revelations is coming to consoles, but it’s more than likely true. It’s a good way for Capcom to fill the gap between the last Resident Evil and the inevitable RE 7, and it’s likely Revelations will be a PSN/Xbox Live download. However, it will need the graphics updated and some of the gameplay mechanics might have to be adjusted – such as the touch screen bits. If anything, Revelations should really be ported over to the PS Vita.More at the Korean Ratings Board (translated), via Eurogamerlast_img read more

Melting ice is disrupting daily life in the YK Delta in the

first_imgFour people have lost their lives in the past two months driving into open water or falling through the ice in the Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta. (Photo by Katie Basile/KYUK)This spring has seen record-breaking warm temperatures across Alaska. In the Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta, the Kuskokwim River is melting early, with devastating consequences. Bethel residents woke up to a warning earlier this month to stop driving on the frozen Kuskokwim River.“Last night, our worst fears were realized,” said Bethel Search and Rescue volunteer Mark Leary, talking on KYUK’s morning radio show. He, along with a handful of other volunteers, had just rescued three men who had been traveling on all-terrain vehicles and fell through the thin ice.The rescuers crept very slowly over the weak ice, surrounded by open water and tethered to a safety line. One of them fell through, but pulled himself out. In the end, they were not able to save two other men.Charles Guest is another volunteer who took part in the rescue.“As the ice rots more and more, I don’t think we’ll be able to pull that off again,” Guest said.Historically, ice doesn’t get this weak in Bethel until May, but that has changed. This year, it started happening in March.“This is something we haven’t experienced before, so early and getting bad so fast,” Leary said.As the climate warms, Alaska is heating up twice as fast as the global average. Bethel experienced its warmest February and March on record this year. Now the melting ice is disrupting daily life, like subsistence hunting.John Fitka lives in Tuntutuliak. Usually he’s outside on the frozen river, hunting seal this time of year.“The trail conditions are just too dangerous to risk it. I did get two small seal, but I guess we just have to make do with what we have,” Fitka said.Bethel and the surrounding communities are off the road system. In the winter, people traveling to other nearby villages drive on the ice road. In the summer, they travel by boat. Both are much cheaper than the only other option, which is flying.Christopher Ondola was at the Bethel airport on his way back to Tuntutuliak. He usually drives the ice road this time of year, but this time he flew, even though it’s just 44 miles away.“I’ve been too scared to go anywhere on my snowmachine because of the ice,” Ondola said.The high price of a ticket limits the number of times he can come to Bethel to pick up groceries, fresh produce, and wood for his steam house. Last month, Ondola lost a friend who drove a snowmachine into open water.“It’s just too freaky-scary,” Ondola said.Last week, friends and family attended funeral services for Nelson Jackson and Ernest Demantle, who fell through the ice on four wheelers. Normally they would have driven on the ice road; this time they flew.Rashah McChesney contributed reporting.last_img read more

Hearing loss could be reversed thanks to sea anemones

first_imgA new study has shown that sea anemones have the potential to reverse traumatic hearing loss.Now before you get all excited, this isn’t some babel fish or ceti eel situation. Scientists have been researching sea anemones’ amazing healing abilities and have used their proteins to repair mice’s sound-sensing cells, according to a report published in the Journal of Experimental Biology.The idea came about after observing that the invertebrates are covered in tiny hair-like cells similar to the sound-sensing hair cells in humans. They are able to regenerate these cells, unlike you and me. All those times you blasted music in your ears or went to concerts and had tinnitus next day? That’s an indication that there’s been permanent damage to your hearing, as when your cells are exposed to loud noise over a long period (or just a short blast of noise) the cells die, and usually never recover.While mammalian hair cells can barely repair traumatic damage, sea anemones have a far superior ability to do so by secreting repair proteins, or RPs. By simply using their cells on mammals, there might be a way to improve things. The biologists tested out their theory on “experimentally traumatized murine cochlear hair cells”- i.e., intentionally deafened mice cells- and found out that after a mere one-hour incubation in RP-enriched culture media that hair cells were restored to levels comparable to the healthy control batch.In the process of doing so the biologists were also able to identify mice proteins that are analogs of the anemones’ RPs, but work far less effectively. They think that more research could ultimately identify how to unlock the potential of our own RPs. Who said the X-Men are fiction?The biologists’ next step is to attempt this on living mice. “If we could get to those hair cells before they commit to die and treat them, there’s a possibility we could reduce hearing loss,” biologist Glen Watson said to Science News.It’s a noble goal. According to the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders, 36 million Americans are affected by hearing loss, which accounts for 17% of the adult population.Somebody tell John Slattery.Image courtesy Mydhili Bayyapunedilast_img read more

Windows 10 look up data usage for the past 30 days

first_imgWindows 10: look up data usage for the past 30 days by Martin Brinkmann on March 22, 2017 in Windows – Last Update: July 05, 2017 – 8 commentsThe following guide walks you through the steps of looking up data usage information on devices running Microsoft’s Windows 10 operating system.It can sometimes be useful to find out how much data is used on a device in a given period of time. Maybe you are on a metered Internet connection and want to make sure that you did not cross any thresholds yet.Or, you crossed a threshold last month and want to find out how that happened, and what you can do about it.You may also use it to find out which programs or apps did use data in the past 30 days, for instance as part of a security or privacy audit.While you can use specialized programs for that that monitor network traffic. To name a few that we reviewed in the past: Netlimiter Monitor, Networx, or Network Traffic Balancer.Windows 10: data usageIf you run Windows 10, and to a degree also Windows 8.x, you can look up basic information about data usage without installing third-party tools.Option 1: Data Usage in SettingsThe first thing that you can do to check data usage on Windows 10 is to look it up in the Settings.You can launch the Settings app with the shortcut Windows-I. Select the Network & Internet option when it opens.Locate the data usage link in the left sidebar when Network & Internet opens, and click on it.Windows 10 displays the overall bandwidth on the page. This is sorted by adapter. If your device connects using various Ethernet ports or WiFi, it is listed there separately.Click on the usage details link on the page to open the list of programs, and the bandwidth that each used in the last 30 days.The programs and apps are sorted by the amount of transferred data, with the program that used the most listed at the top.You can scroll down on the page, but there is no 0ption to find a specific program, sort the data in a different way, or export it.Option 2: Windows Task ManagerThe Task Manager option was introduced in Windows 8 for the first time. It is limited to the data usage (and other metrics) of applications.What this means is that you only get a list of installed (Windows Store) apps there, and not desktop programs / legacy Win32 programs.Still, if you want to find out which app used data in the past 30 days, you may find the listing useful.Use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl-Shift-Esc to open the Windows Task Manager. Switch to the App history tab when it is open.There you find listed all apps that used CPU time or network data. One advantage of the listing in the Task Manager is that you can sort the data with a click on a column title. A click on network sorts the application listing by network data usage for instance.Option 3: PowershellI’m not super proficient when it comes to PowerShell, but you can use it to list the total of received and sent bytes.To start a PowerShell interface, tap on the Windows-key, type Powershell, hold down the Shift and Ctrl key on the keyboard, and execute the result from search.Use the command Get-NetAdapterStatistics to display data usage information for each connected network adapter.Now You: Do you monitor data usage on Windows?SummaryArticle NameWindows 10: look up data usage for the past 30 days DescriptionThe following guide walks you through the steps of looking up data usage information on devices running Microsoft’s Windows 10 operating system.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more

A Republican candidate said diversity is crap and unAmerican

first_imgHowever, in his first time addressing them since he made them, Grossman defended the remarks.He released a statement on Facebook.‘Republicans need to push back and point out the obvious,’ the statement begins.‘”Diversity” is not a virtue. America did not become great because of “diversity”. America became great because our Constitution, our culture of liberty, and our Judeo-Christian heritage of “Love thy neighbor as thyself” created “boundless” opportunities that let Americans of every race, ethnic group, and gender succeed.’Grossman now faces Democratic candidate Jeff Van Drew in the general election on 6 November.Got a news tip?

The Cardinal’s all-time leader in career rushing yards, he enters camp as one of many running backs looking to earn a spot on the roster.Because along with Taylor, the Cardinals have Rashard Mendenhall, Andre Ellington, Alfonso Smith and Ryan Williams vying for reps.“We all know we’re all great backs, so that’s pushing our game, elevating our game because we’ve got to compete,” Taylor said. “You see them make a good play and the next person wants to make a good play.”Taylor said the competition will only help the running backs improve, and thus the team will benefit, too. Needless to say, Taylor is happy to finally be part of it all.“I’m one of those people that it’s great to be around your teammates because you build trust and respect and that me being away, it didn’t feel right to me,” Taylor added. “It was definitely rough but I had to.”That’s all in the past, as Taylor is here and ready to get to work. The biggest adjustment, he said, is getting used to the speed, terminology and plays. “How the coaches want things done at this level, rather than at the college level,” he said. 0 Comments   Share   Your browser does not support the audio element.
