Thought of Money Makes You Less Social, Study Suggests

Fulham won’t give up but face ‘big ask’ – Parker

first_img Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebook See also:Fulham striker Mitrovic given three-match ban Fulham dominated much of the rest of the second half, with Mitrovic and Anthony Knockaert going close to an equaliser.The visitors also felt they should have had a penalty for a handball by Tyler Roberts.Fulham continued to threaten after the interval but Alioski doubled the hosts’ lead after collecting Pablo Hernandez’s pass.Harrison slotted home the third to seal Leeds’ priceless victory.[scriptless] Scott Parker insisted Fulham would not give up on automatic promotion despite the 3-0 defeat at Leeds.Fulham’s chances of a top-two finish look remote – and Brentford’s suffered a big blow – after Leeds took a massive step towards a return to the Premier League.A win at Elland Road for fourth-placed Fulham would have taken them to within four points of second-placed West Brom, who lost at Brentford on Friday evening, and Leeds.AdChoices广告But goals from Patrick Bamford, Ezgjan Alioski and Jack Harrison took Leeds top of the table, with the Yorkshire club 10 points clear of Fulham and eight clear of Brentford, although the Bees are within five points of West Brom.And the Whites could now have to contend with a suspension to 23-goal striker Aleksandar Mitrovic, who appeared to elbow Ben White in the face early on.Whites boss Parker said he did not see the incident.He also admitted that reaching the top two would be a “big ask” after this result.But he added: “I wouldn’t write it off yet. The reason being is we’re in a world where the unexpected can happen.“The way division is, and you’ve seen in the first two games that can be the case.“Our ambition is to still keep going and we will do that.”center_img Embed from Getty Images Mitrovic escaped punishment but video evidence suggested he might well face retrospective action.Bamford put Leeds ahead after 10 minutes by finishing coolly after being set up by Heldar Costa.Embed from Getty Imageslast_img read more

Duke Endowment Weighs in to Help NC Children in Crisis

first_imgChildren’s Home Society will receive support from a long-term ally to help scale up proven programs to battle North Carolina’s foster care crisis. Among a growing list of concerned organizations and individuals, The Duke Endowment announced a 4-year, $3.7-million grant to expand foster care, early intervention, and prevention services across the state.“James B. Duke set a course for his philanthropy to enrich lives in a multitude of ways across North and South Carolina,” said Phil Redmond, Jr., Director of The Duke Endowment’s Child Care program area. “Today, we continue our journey together with Children’s Home Society of North Carolina to help vulnerable children lead more successful lives.”According to Brian Maness, President and CEO of Children’s Home Society of North Carolina, foster care is in a state of crisis, increasing every month in 2016 compared to the same period in the prior year.At the end of 2016, there were 10,524 children in foster care with about 2,400 children eligible for adoption.“Last year, we were able to place only 12 percent of the children referred to us,” said Maness. “We need to increase public awareness of the foster care crisis and expand our capacity of adoptive and foster homes for children.”Committed to reversing these negative trends, the leadership and board of Children’s Home Society – North Carolina’s largest provider of foster care and adoption services – launched the Promise of Family campaign, teaming resources from foundations, companies, organizations, families and individuals to expand and accelerate proven programs for vulnerable children.“A child without a family is unacceptable,” said Maness. “Every child deserves a loving, safe, and permanent home.”According to Maness, the relationship between the Duke family and Children’s Home Society of North Carolina goes back to 1902, when Benjamin Duke, the brother of James Buchanan Duke, founder of The Duke Endowment, was on the founding CHS board.“One hundred fifteen years later,” said Maness, “Children’s Home Society’s core mission of promoting a loving, safe, and permanent family for every child has not changed.The Duke Endowment, based in Charlotte, has distributed more than $3.3 billion in grants since its inception in 1924. The endowment’s work in North Carolina and South Carolina focuses on child care, health care, higher education, and rural United Methodist churcheslast_img read more

How to Transfer a Password Securely

first_imgHave you ever needed to share some private information, but needed to make sure it was shared securely? Maybe you had to test something quickly, but didn’t need to maintain the password? Or, perhaps you had a sensitive message, private link, or password you wanted to share with one person? I’ve had that happen to me multiple times over the past few weeks. And it happened again this morning on a phone call.And that’s when I remembered One-Time Secret, a site anyone can use to transfer or share sensitive information safely.One-Time SecretCreated by Delano Mandelbaum in 2012, One-Time Secret lets you send passwords, private links, or messages safely and securely. You can send messages without creating an account, or you can set up a free account. Paid plans are also available. Messages are limited to 25K for anonymous users, 50K for users with free accounts. Paid users get more space, but I could’t find info on the website for the limits.You even have the option to encrypt the message with a passphrase, available under Privacy Options. Why Use One-Time Secret?When you use email to send passwords or messages, copies of that information are maintained in different places. Which means the information you send in email isn’t secure.With One-Time Secret, the link only works once for a single viewing. It can’t be read by anyone else at a later time. Once the information is displayed, it’s deleted. Secrets don’t last forever. They’re maintained for seven days for anonymous users; 14 days for users with free accounts. After that, secrets are deleted forever.One-Time Secret is a great tool for remote teams that need to test code one time and need to transfer passwords, but don’t need to maintain passwords. The code is open-sourced and available on GitHub, so you can set up your own instance of One-Time Secret. What You Need to KnowYou can use One-Time Secret without creating an account. But if you choose to create a free account, it’s quick to set up. I smiled when I saw their confirmation message. Be mindful of what you share. It’s not a good idea to share a personal password you use across accounts like your bank, credit card, and credit union.You can “burn a secret”, which means you can delete it before it’s been read. Maybe you’ve created a secret, but changed your mind after you sent the secret link. When you burn the secret, they won’t be able to read it.I can see lots of uses for One-Time Secret with my clients, who want to share a password with me quickly. Or when I need to send them sensitive information about their website. What do you think of One-Time Secret?

ICC U-19 World Cup: Shubman Gill and Prithvi Shaw’s families ecstatic

first_imgShubman Gill, Prithvi Shaw, Ishan Porel were the toast of the nation after their 203-run victory over Pakistan in the ICC Cricket World Cup on Tuesday.Pankaj Shaw, father of Indian U-19 skipper Prithvi Shaw, has heaped praises on the Men in Blue’s all-round performance after they stormed into the finals of the ICC Under-19 World Cup, following their thumping win over arch-rivals Pakistan.WATCHThree-time champions India marched into their sixth final at the ICC U-19 Cricket World Cup with a facile 203 runs victory over Pakistan in the second semi-final clash at the Hagley Oval in Christchurch.Ecstatic with the victory, Pankaj said that batsmen performed really well especially Shubman Gill before adding that the fielding and bowling was equally good.”I am feeling very happy that our kids played well against Pakistan. We have beaten them by 203 runs. Everyone batted really well especially Shubman Gill, who performed really well in the middle. Our opening was also good. Prithvi and Manjot Kalra added 90 runs for the opening wicket. India’s fielding and bowling attack was also good. So, I am feeling really good. They have a coach like Rahul Dravid. I don’t need to add anything further,” said Pankaj.Shubman Gill capitalized on his fine form to struck an unbeaten knock of 102 runs as India posted a challenging 272 for nine even as Pakistan bowlers Muhammad Musa and Arshad Iqbal bowled their hearts out to share seven scalps.In reply, Pakistan were bundled out for 69 in 29.3 overs, their lowest total to date in the tournament.advertisementReflecting on Shubman’s century, his mother, Keerat Kaur Gill, said that she was happy to see his son’s ton coming in India’s victory.”The whole family is very happy that Shubman hit a century today and contributed to the Indian team’s victory.We are very happy with the fact that the Kolkata Knight Riders team have given him the chance to represent the side in the Indian Premier League (IPL). We hope that he continues to play in the same way as he has performed so far and always give his best,” Gill said.

(Photo: @cricketworldcup)Shubman’s father, Lakhvinder Singh Gill, echoed similar views as he said, “Yes, I am feeling very happy. They have beaten Pakistan by 203 runs. All the players have performed exceedingly well. He has also contributed in India’s victory that is why we are feeling really glad.”Gill had recently been bought by the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in the Indian Premier League (IPL) auction for a whopping Rs 1.8 crore.Gill took charge after openers Manjot Kalra (47, 59b, 7×4) and Prithvi Shaw (41, 42b, 3×4, 1×6) had added 89. Captain Shaw’s run out gave Pakistan a window of opportunity and there was a keen battle in the mid overs as Anukul Roy (33) and Harvik Desai (20) contributed useful knocks but Musa (4-67) and Arshad (3-51) chipped away to ensure things were not easy for India.What a performance by India U19s to book their place in the #U19CWC Final! Here’s the highlights of their massive 203 run victory over Pakistan! pic.twitter.com/998PfXj1SD— Cricket World Cup (@cricketworldcup) January 30, 2018This was Gill’s sixth consecutive score of 50 or more. He had struck two fifties on a tour of England in August and three earlier in this tournament – 63 against Australia, 90 not out versus Zimbabwe and 86 versus Bangladesh in the quarter-finals. He did not get to bat in a 10-wicket win over Papua New Guinea in the preliminary league.Gill got to his century off what was to be the last ball of the innings. He lofted Musa to long-off, where captain Hassan Khan dropped an easy catch. Gill ran two to move from 99 to 101 but was to learn later that it was a no-ball. He then got a single off the resultant free-hit to complete the innings.In the final match in Tauranga on February 3, India will lock horns with Australia, whom they had defeated by 100 runs in the preliminary league.Both the sides have won the title three times each, which means Saturday’s winners will become the most successful nation in the history of the tournament.(With inputs from ANI)last_img read more

10 months ago​Crystal Palace striker Townsend: I watch videos to emulate Vardy

first_img​Crystal Palace striker Townsend: I watch videos to emulate Vardyby Freddie Taylor10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveCrystal Palace attacker Andros Townsend wants to become a striker.He has typically played as a winger for most of his career.But he believes that he can become a very effective striker, in the mould of Jamie Vardy at Leicester City.He has played there in the absence of Christian Benteke this season.”The last time I played there I was about nine years of age in kids’ football,” says Townsend to the Evening Standard.”I had always been a player who needed to see white lines, but I am actually really enjoying playing up front. I did not think I would be saying that a few years ago. Hopefully I can continue playing there as long as possible. I know if I want to stay there, I want to be contributing with more goals. “You have to do the running in behind. That has probably been the one criticism from former managers. Yes, I am good on the ball and like to take people on but can I run in behind? Can I work back? Can I be disciplined to pick up the opposition’s holding midfielder? I have learned the other side of the game.I have improved and hopefully I can keep improving the more I play there.”Jamie Vardy is the one I try to watch clips on to see what he does. He plays in a similar role where he is asked to make runs in behind, dart out wide and be busy around the pitch. If what I want to be is a striker who is quick and makes runs in behind, he is the prime example.” About the authorFreddie TaylorShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more
