A team known to always punch above its weight, the Black Caps have tried every trick in the book to lay hands on their maiden title.”New Zealand is in a sweet spot. No-one’s talking about us too much. We’re forever the underdogs and that suits us quite well,” Franklin, who has made 15 World Cup appearances for New Zealand, said at the official tournament opening here on Wednesday.Since the last ODI World Cup, New Zealand has climbed as high as second in the ICC ODI rankings.”We haven’t been leading the world, I think England have been in front in recent years, but we’ve still been playing very consistent cricket,” Franklin said.New Zealand has landed in the United Kingdom on the back of a 3-0 series win against Bangladesh at home. They humbled tournament favorites India in their opening warm-up game before facing a massive 91-run defeat to the West Indies.”If we can get some form going over the next few weeks, there’s no reason why New Zealand couldn’t go on and win the World Cup,” Franklin said.”I think the New Zealand public and team will be confident they can go deep into the tournament,” he added.Talking about the skipper, Franklin said Kane Williamson’s captaincy mirrors his batting – efficient and world class.advertisement”I think Kane has a quietness about him, but he’s assertive and he knows what he wants.”In terms of his leadership, his batting is probably a reflection of it. It’s methodical but sneakily efficient and world-class. I think his captaincy is exactly the same. I don’t think he’s a Brendon McCullum-style leader when you see everything and it’s attacking,” he said.”Kane is measured, but knows exactly how he wants to manage his bowlers, his batsmen and what he wants New Zealand cricket to achieve,” Franklin added.Also Read | Pakistan to host T20 Asia cup 2020 in neutral venueAlso Read | West Indies are neither favourites nor underdogs: Brathwaite ahead of World CupAlso SeeFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to Like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter for Sports news, scores and updates.Get real-time alerts and all the news on your phone with the all-new India Today app. Download from Post your comment Do You Like This Story?

Google accused of unlawfully copying song lyricsGoogle accused of unlawfully copying song lyrics

first_imgSan Francisco: Genius Media, a US-based digital media company that specialises in song lyrics, has accused Google of copying their work to display in its Search results for years without permission and has asked the search-engine giant to address the situation. According to Genius Media, the lyrics that Google displays alongside any usual information about a particular song on Search are picked up from the company’s work. “The company has shown Google irrefutable evidence again and again that they are displaying lyrics copied from Genius in their Lyrics OneBox. This is a serious issue and Google needs to address it,” The Verge reported Ben Gross, Chief Strategy Officer at Genius Media as saying on Sunday. Also Read – Spotify rolls out Siri support, new Apple TV app Launched in 2009, Genius Media describes itself as a “platform for annotating clever rap lyrics” and has since expanded into other types of music as well. As part of its investigation, the site used a series of alternating straight and curved apostrophes in its lyrics to form a type of watermark and as per their plan, converting the patterns into Morse code revealed the words “Red Handed”. However, in defence, the search-engine giant confirmed that any information displayed in its search results are licensed from various sources.

According to other media reports, Google has claimed that the lyrics its Search displays alongside any song being searched is sourced from a third-party called LyricFind Inc. The company LyricFind also denied that it borrowed song lyrics from Genius Media, the report said. The accusation on Google comes shortly after reports surfaced that the US Department of Justice is preparing to open a case against the tech giant for potential anti-trust violations, thus, putting scrutiny on the tech giant amid a growing chorus of criticism about the power of Big Tech Earlier in March, European Union’s (EU) anti-trust regulators on Wednesday fined Google 1.49 billion euros ($1.7 billion) for abusing its dominance in the online search market by blocking rivals. Later in May, India joined EU when its antitrust watchdog Competition Commission of India (CCI) ordered an investigation into Google’s aggressive push to Android that seems like a block-technique against its rivals.last_img read more

Mom and son kicked off planeMom and son kicked off plane

A local celebrity was kicked off a plane, because of a crying toddler. Sarah Blackwood, the lead singer for the Burlington based band “Walk off the Earth”, was on board a United Airlines flight from San Francisco to Vancouver with her son and friend Wednesday evening, when she says they were told to get off the plane before take off, because her almost two-year-old son would not stop crying. Sarah Blackwood is also 7 months pregnant and an avid flyer. She has been traveling with her son his entire life. She says what should have been a routine flight turned into a nightmare. “He was more fussy than usual on this flight but that’s what happens. He is a kid he is going to cry.”She was then asked by a flight attendant to control her child on board United Flight 6223, operated by Skywest Airlines.“I am also 7 months pregnant, so I was holding him the best that I could and he was squirming and crying really loud but everyone around didn’t mind they were fine with it and very sympathetic. I knew he was going to fall asleep, I know my son and he did fall asleep. Then they turned the plane around and got up to the gate and by the time we were at the gate my son was fully asleep and they sent a lady on the plane to ask us to leave the plane.”Skywest airlines says “the crew made the difficult decision to remove Ms. Blackwood and her child from the flight based solely on safety concerns. Despite numerous requests, the child was not seated, as required by federal regulation to ensure passenger safety, and was repeatedly in the aisle of the aircraft before departure and during taxi.”“I was in a window seat so there was no way he could have been running in the aisles.” Children under two can travel on their parents lap and don’t require their own seat. Blackwood’s son is 22 months old. read more

No evidence Turkeys bird flu cases came from humantohuman contact UN saysNo evidence Turkeys bird flu cases came from humantohuman contact UN says

A United Nations team is heading today for Turkey to help investigate two deaths from bird flu and nine hospitalized cases, the first outside East Asia, but no evidence so far would suggest that the cases represent human-to-human transmission, David Nabarro, the Senior UN System Coordinator for Avian and Human Influenza, said today. In response to a request from the Turkish Government, a team of experts from the World Health Organization (WHO), the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control and the European Commission (EC) will work with the authorities in investigating the situation in the eastern part of the country, where the nine other patients have been hospitalized. A WHO collaborating centre in the United Kingdom is now analyzing samples from the infected people. According to Mr. Nabarro, the report confirms the absolute need for continued local, national and international vigilance, as well as intensive efforts to detect and respond to suspected outbreaks of the disease. WHO said the first two cases were teenage siblings from the rural district of Dogubayazit, in the eastern province of Agri, which borders Iran and Armenia. One died on New Year’s Day and the other today. Turkish authorities had at first ruled out avian influenza in these cases based on preliminary test results from nose and throat samples, but they later diagnosed avian flu from lung samples. Initial information about the confirmed cases suggests that the children acquired the infection after contact with chickens. Chickens recently died in the Dogubayazit district. Although no poultry influenza outbreak was officially reported there, a confirmed outbreak of H5N1 avian flu in chickens and ducks was reported on 27 December in the adjacent province of Igdir. National authorities told WHO that culling is underway in Dogubayazit district, which has also been placed under quarantine with no people or animals allowed to move in or out. Since January 2004, a total of 142 human cases of H5N1 infection have been reported in Viet Nam, Thailand, Cambodia, Indonesia, and China. Turkey reported its first outbreak of H5N1 avian influenza in poultry in mid-October of last year. That outbreak, which occurred in the northwestern part of the country, was attributed to contact between domestic poultry and migratory waterfowl. Igdir, which has several large lakes, also lies along migratory routes. read more

Exxon Mobil profit falls 16 per cent to 835 billion revenue missesExxon Mobil profit falls 16 per cent to 835 billion revenue misses

Exxon Mobil profit falls 16 per cent to $8.35 billion, revenue misses Wall Street expectations by The Associated Press Posted Jan 30, 2014 6:26 am MDT Exxon Mobil’s fourth-quarter profit fell 16 per cent as the company produced slightly less oil and gas and its refining business weakened.Exxon has been criticized for failing to boost production, but the CEO says that new projects now in the works will produce profits and lift the business.Exxon Mobil Corp. said Thursday that fourth-quarter net income was $8.35 billion, or $1.91 per share, matching Wall Street’s forecast. That compares with profit of $9.95 billion, or $2.20 per share, a year earlier.Revenue fell 3.3 per cent to $110.86 billion, below the $114.51 billion that analysts were expecting, according to a FactSet survey.Production of oil and gas dropped 1.8 per cent.In a statement, Chairman and CEO Rex Tillerson said disciplined investing and new projects were putting the company in position for sustained big profits.“Over the next two years, ExxonMobil will start up numerous major projects delivering profitable new supplies of oil and natural gas while strengthening our refining and chemicals businesses,” he said.The Irving, Texas-based company spent $26 billion last year on dividends and buybacks that reduced the number of shares — moves designed to please shareholders.As oil prices were stabilizing, Exxon’s shares gained nearly 15 per cent during 2013, about on par with Chevron Corp. but trailing the broader indexes, including the Dow Jones industrial average.In trading before Thursday’s opening bell, Exxon shares were down $1.18 to $93.93.Exxon is the world’s biggest publicly traded oil company. It became the largest producer of U.S. natural gas with the 2010 acquisition of XTO Energy, a deal that has failed to produce immediate results due to stubbornly low gas prices amid a surge in drilling.In the fourth quarter, Exxon’s earnings from oil and gas production in the U.S. fell 26 per cent to $1.19 billion; outside the U.S. — easily the company’s most profitable business — earnings dipped 9 per cent to $5.6 billion.The sharpest decline came in refining and selling petroleum products, where earnings plunged 48 per cent to $916 million on weaker refining margins.Exxon said it paid $23.11 billion in income, sales and other taxes, a decrease of 4.2 per cent from the fourth quarter of 2012.

Buckeyes squeak by Navy USC up nextBuckeyes squeak by Navy USC up next

Navy nearly killed the Ohio State-USC hype before the week began. A two-point conversion separated the Midshipmen and Buckeyes with two minutes remaining, but it was OSU that came away with those coveted points en route to a nerve-racking 31-27 victory before an opening-day record 105,092 fans at Ohio Stadium.With OSU leading 29-27, linebacker Brian Rolle intercepted Ricky Dobbs’ pass and returned it the length of the field for two points, as the stunned crowd let out a collective sigh of relief. A Navy conversion would have tied the game, an almost unthinkable turn of events after the Midshipmen trailed by 15 midway through the fourth quarter.“We were nervous for maybe a second,” Rolle admitted. “Then we realized there was no reason to panic now. We knew we just needed to step up and make a play.”Dobbs, a junior quarterback who set career highs with eight completions for 156 yards, said that Rolle’s pick, coupled with an earlier interception by Kurt Coleman, spelled doom for Navy.“I tried to squeeze it in there by throwing it low, but [Rolle] just made a great break on it,” Dobbs said. “I take full responsibility for this one. We have no chance to win with turnovers.”The Buckeyes didn’t allow Navy to make things interesting until the fourth quarter. Leading 29-14, coach Jim Tressel elected to send out his offense instead of kicking a field goal on fourth down. Navy stopped Dan “Boom” Herron one yard short of the first down, turning the ball back over to the Midshipmen.Dobbs capitalized on the opportunity, slinging an 85-yard touchdown strike to receiver Marcus Curry, cutting the lead to eight.“I certainly should have kicked a field goal on fourth and one, which was a huge mistake in my mind,” Tressel said. “Of course, we didn’t make the fourth and one and made it a bigger mistake.”The touchdown pass- the third-longest in Navy history- accounted for more than half of the team’s total yards through the air. The Midshipmen have led the nation in rushing for each of the past four seasons, but relied on their passing attack more often than usual against the Bucks.“They threw the ball a lot more than we thought,” senior cornerback Andre Amos said. “The corners today really didn’t have a chance but to be on their toes. We just tried to stay focused, knowing that in certain situations, they would have to throw the ball.”OSU regained possession of the football with a 29-21 advantage, but sophomore quarterback Terrelle Pryor tossed an interception with four minutes left, leaving Navy in position to tie the game. Pryor tipped his cap to the Buckeyes’ adversary, praising their effort even when trailing.“We saw today why they’re the best in the world at what they do,” he said. “They never give up. They’re fighters.”Aside from the interception, Pryor totaled 174 passing yards with two scores. The first came on a 38-yard strike to Dane Sanzenbacher on the opening drive of the game. The other, a 2-yard bootleg to the outside, pushed the Buckeyes’ lead to 17-7 midway through the second quarter.OSU contained Navy’s triple option rushing attack for the most part. The Midshipmen rushed for 186 yards on 44 carries, well below their average of 292 yards per game from last season.With a rematch against USC looming, Ohio State players guaranteed that they weren’t overlooking a talented Navy squad that finished 8-5 a year ago.“We knew Navy was tough,” said freshman receiver Duron Carter, son of former Buckeye legend Cris Carter. “No one mentioned USC all week. We knew we needed to prepare hard to get a victory.”Carter, listed as the team’s No. 4 receiver, saw plenty of action in his first career game at OSU. He finished with three catches for 21 yards, and contributed after top wideout DeVier Posey left with an ankle injury.Although the Buckeyes claimed they weren’t looking past the Midshipmen, Navy coach Ken Niumatalolo embraced the opportunity to challenge the Buckeyes the week before such a heavyweight bout.“We felt like if Ohio State came dialed in and totally focused, we had no chance,” the second-year coach said. “We kind of had the perfect storm situation with USC coming up. We knew that if they separated any of their preparation time, then we had a chance to win.”Even after giving the Buckeyes an unexpected scare, Niumatalolo said Navy didn’t achieve its central goal.“We came here to win, that was our goal for the past eight months,” he said. “We didn’t come here to experience the atmosphere, we came here to win. Our kids are down.”Ohio State led at halftime, 20-7. Former Ohio Senator and astronaut John Glenn dotted the “I” during intermission.Before the game, Ohio State displayed its respect for the Naval Academy with a video tribute and several honorary awards. The teams broke customary tradition by entering the field at the same time and running down the field together.Ohio State’s last home-opening loss came in 1978, when the Buckeyes were underdogs against Penn State.To avoid another trouncing at the hands of Southern Cal, Tressel knows his team must work hard to improve this week.“We know the team coming in next week is a great football team. Our task is to get better and make sure we’re up for the challenge.” read more

Geinimi Android Trojan appears in China ready to steal your dataGeinimi Android Trojan appears in China ready to steal your data

first_imgAndroid is spreading like wildfire. In 2011 it’s going to become common on tablets as well as the millions of new phones that ship with it every month. With that popularity also comes the threat of hackers taking notice and targeting the platform.It looks as though that is already happening with a new Trojan for Android appearing in China called Geinimi. It is spreading via third-party Android app networks as part of apps that have been repackaged, but look like other popular apps. Most of these apps are games with examples given including:AdChoices广告Monkey Jump 2Sex Positions President vs. Aliens City Defense Baseball Superstars 2010The official versions of these games on the Android Market are fine, it’s the repackaged versions on third-party networks that carry the Trojan and need to be avoided.The Geinimi version of these apps requires the user allow much deeper access permissions. In return Geinimi gains control over the phone and then regularly connects to a remote server without a user’s knowledge. The end result is any and all data on the phone can be stolen and used by the person or group in control of the remote server.The good news is Geinimi has only been seen in China so far, and only in apps on third-party networks. No instances of this Trojan appearing on the Android Market have been found, but who knows how long it will take for that to be attempted?Lookout Mobile Security, who identified the threat, is still looking into what Geinimi can do. This is what they have found it can do so far:Send location coordinates (fine location)Send device identifiers (IMEI and IMSI)Download and prompt the user to install an appPrompt the user to uninstall an appEnumerate and send a list of installed apps to the serverLookout also points out this is the most advanced Trojan they have seen yet for Android even if it was quite obvious to spot by the security company.Read more at the Lookout blogMatthew’s OpinionThis is going to become an escalating problem for the most popular mobile operating systems. Android is especially vulnerable purely because it is becoming so popular and being used across a range of different types of device. It’s in the interests of hackers to target it as a platform.The underlying hardware is going to continue to get more powerful allowing background activities to run with no discernible impact on overall system performance. It’s also becoming easier to carry out transactions on your phone making for a security risk if we all start entering our credit card pins on a smartphone when paying for goods.Ultimately we could end up all having to run a security app permanently on our phones, or the Android team is going to have to offer up new security features to limit the potential damage caused by a Trojan.last_img read more

Wylie Pike propose variety of legislationWylie Pike propose variety of legislation

first_imgOLYMPIA — Here is a look at some of the bills being proposed by Southwest Washington lawmakers.Today is the deadline for bills to be considered by committees in their houses of origin.Rep. Sharon Wylie, D-Vancouver• House Bill 1742: This proposal would allow businesses that sell beer growlers to also sell wine growlers.The bill would apply to breweries, restaurants, taverns or wineries. A growler is a glass or ceramic jug that is filled to the brim with beer or wine. Some restaurants sell growlers full of beer while others allow patrons to bring their own growlers for filling.“A lot of wine shops and wineries would like to allow customers to come in and refill their bottles,” Wylie said last week during a public hearing before the House Government Accountability and Oversight Committee. “It’s a simple idea, recycles the bottles, and there’s a lot of folks that would like to have it.”• House Bill 1195: This bill would repeal state laws that exclude certain primary election candidates from appearing on the ballot.According to state law, if there are only two candidates vying for a local public office, such as a city council seat, then their names are included on the general election ballot but not on the primary election ballot. Wylie’s bill would repeal that rule, and put every candidate on the primary ballot, even if there is only one candidate in the race, said Marsha Reilly, a nonpartisan staff member for the Government Operations and Elections Committee.Also, when a legislator leaves office early, and it prompts an election in an odd-numbered year, those competing to replace the outgoing official are not placed on the primary ballot if there are two people or fewer running. Wylie’s bill would repeal that rule, too.The bill would give candidates more freedom when it comes to fundraising, according to those who testified on the bill last month. Campaign donors can give up to $900 to a candidate for the primary election and another $900 to the candidate for thelast_img read more

The shocking reason Meghan Markle didnt meet Donald Trump was the USThe shocking reason Meghan Markle didnt meet Donald Trump was the US

first_imgMeghan MarkleGetty ImagesMeghan Markle is the Duchess of Sussex, and ever since joining the Royal Family, she has been diligent in performing her Royal duties. But she is known for not caring much for Royal protocol or traditions, having flaunted them more than once.She did so again, during the visit of U.S. President Donald Trump. Meghan Markle has made no secret about her feelings for Donald Trump, and she had no intention of meeting him. Though Meghan Markle used her maternity leave as an excuse not to meet the U.S. President.The 37-year-old, who was on maternity leave at the time, didn’t greet Trump due to her condition and not because of any animosity between them, according to a source close to her. The revelation comes after Trump called Meghan “nasty” in an interview ahead of the visit. Meghan previously called Trump “misogynistic” and “divisive” during his 2016 presidential campaign. US President Donald Trump signs an executive order imposing fresh sanctions on Iran on June 24, 2019.ReutersTrump later told The Sun: “I didn’t know that. What can I say? I didn’t know that she was nasty.”Meghan Markle could have taken a break from her maternity leave if she wanted to, just like e she did for Trooping the Colour. But since her feelings on Donald Trump are crystal clear, she decided to avoid meeting him. Who knows what would have happened if the two had come face to face. Meghan has been pretty vocal about her opposition to Trump as the President of the United States of America. And if in the same room as him, she might have said that to his face. That would have caused the Royal Palace further embarrassment. Though Royal sources still claim that Meghan’s refusal to not meet Donald Trump was nothing personal.last_img read more
