Loggers fall to Pilots, bow out of NCS

first_imgA memorable season came to a disappointing end for the Eureka Loggers on Tuesday, with a 4-1 loss to St. Joseph Notre Dame in the opening round of the Division-III North Coast Section playoffs.The Loggers were unable to come up with the clutch hit when they needed it the most, and left runners stranded in scoring position in five of the seven innings, “You can’t leave that many runners on the bases, especially with less than two outs,” Eureka head coach Jeff Giacomini said.

Mike Fiers sharp, Khris Davis crushes in A’s Opening Day win over Angels

first_imgOAKLAND — A return to the Coliseum may have been all Mike Fiers needed to get back on track.Starting his second Opening Day in nearly the span of a week, Fiers made up for the poor first one in Japan by looking more like the pitcher who piloted the A’s 2018 playoff run in Thursday’s 4-0 win over the Los Angeles Angels in front of 22,691 fans at the Oakland Coliseum.Command was an issue for Fiers in his first start and still somewhat of a problem against the Angels — he walked three batters …last_img

Apple Develops Peer-to-Peer App Sharing System

first_imgRelated Posts With hundreds of thousands of mobile applications available in iTunes, how do you find the good ones? You can read reviews online, seek out new releases via third-party app recommendation sites, check iTunes’ Genius picks or its “top sellers” lists, but at the end of the day, one of the most popular ways to find new apps is still the most traditional: personal recommendations.Now, it looks like Apple is working on technology that will capitalize on that trend. A patent application reveals that Apple has developed a system for sharing applications through peer-to-peer connections with other phones.Uncovered by the blog Patently Apple, the published patent application details a system that would allow you to transfer apps from your phone to a friend’s phone via a peer-to-peer connection, such as through a cable, infrared connection or a network cloud, like the Internet, cellular network or a wireless mesh network. The transferred app could either be a full copy of the application, a limited (trial or demo) copy or the application seed, this last term meaning just enough information for the iPhone to download the application from a server at a later point. A seed would be useful in cases where the connection was dropped, causing the app transfer to remain incomplete. It could also serve as a way to share an app more quickly, we would guess, in areas where bandwidth is limited. Even though transferring an app seed wouldn’t allow you to use the app itself (the patent says you could send a “visual representation of the application” with the seed), at least you would still be able to grab the app from iTunes later on. Tags:#mobile Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces sarah perezcenter_img Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement The Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technology What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … In addition to providing a mechanism for sharing, the patent also briefly covers plans for an affiliate program. When someone bought an app you shared with them, you could be rewarded with money, store credit, coupons, promotional items, or even an “improved status” of sorts. (Please, no badges!) I hope that Apple stays out of the affiliate business, personally. Once there’s money to be earned, things get a little murky – is my tech-savvy friend sharing this app because it’s really that good? Or because they want to earn credits on iTunes? Hmm.This system, if it ever comes to pass, would serve as a great way to actually facilitate personal app recommendations and would additionally allow for “try before you buy” programs, too. Transferred apps could be either “lite”/demo versions or fully functional apps which expire after a set amount of time. That latter could be useful for getting more users to try an app, especially considering that the iTunes App Store doesn’t have an official app refund policy in place. (Refunds have been handled on a case-by-case basis in the past, but there is no actual refund window like there is on Android).Patently Apple offers more details about this technology on its site, if you want to read about things like its use of “share flags,” details on security functions, the system’s interface functionality or even the use of Wi-Fi access points in coffee shops, for example.Image credits: Patently Applelast_img read more

Tejashwi backs Kushwaha plan

first_imgA day after Union Minister and Rashtriya Lok Samta Party (RLSP) chief Upendra Kushwaha hinted at a possible political realignment in Bihar, Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader Tejashwi Yadav on Sunday welcomed the proposal. “Undoubtedly Upendraji, tasty and healthy kheer is a necessity for the hard-working people. The health-promoting elements of Panchmewa gives not only energy for the body but also helps build an equal society. The kheer made with love has full potential of nutrition, taste and energy. This is a good cuisine,” tweeted Mr. Yadav, who is the Leader of the Opposition in the Assembly.Yadavs with a 14% vote bank are said to be solidly behind the RJD, while Kushwahas have about 6% of the vote. Earlier on Saturday, while addressing an event organised by his party to mark the birth centenary of veteran socialist leader B.P. Mandal, who had headed the Mandal Commission that recommended 27% reservation for backward castes in jobs, Mr. Kushwaha said, “A large number of people from the Yadav caste have gathered here. It doesn’t take much time to prepare kheer, if milk from Yadavs and rice from Kushwahas mix together, but milk and rice are not enough to prepare kheer. It also needs support of people from lower castes and under-privileged society in the form of dry-fruits.” Mr. Kushwaha is said to not be happy in the ruling NDA coalition and he has been exploring political realignment with the RJD. Earlier, Mr. Yadav had said that his “party would welcome Kushwaha to the Opposition.”last_img read more

They used tin-sheets on the roofs of their stalls which saved them from greater damages,” Jamal said.He said the book stall owners can claim compensation from insurance companies as insurance policy was made compulsory for the stall owners this year.Jamal said the stall owners had suffered huge losses in previous years due to heavy rains. “So, the insurance policy was introduced to protect them from financial losses.”The fair will continue as usual despite the damages of some stalls, he said adding that they took prompt steps to remove the stagnant water from the fair ground.Visiting the fair venue, the UNB correspondent found many books lying in stagnant rainwater on the fair ground in the morning.The capital experienced around 20mm of rainfall coupled with hailstorm, thunderstorm and temporary gusty wind, under the influence of seasonal low that lies over the South Bay.A number of areas of the capital were inundated due to the rain causing sufferings to the city dwellers, including school, college and officers goers, in the morning.last_img read more
