I can enjoy my break now: Virat Kohli after India win ODI series vs New ZealandI can enjoy my break now: Virat Kohli after India win ODI series vs New Zealand

first_img3rd ODI, Brief Scores: India (244/3) beat New Zealand (243) by 7 wickets to take an unbeatable 3-0 series lead. Rohit (62), Kohli (60), Rayudu (40*).Virat Kohli said he was pleased with India’s clinical cricket after clinching the ODI series against New Zealand on Monday. Chasing 244 in the third ODI, India got home with 8 wickets to spare thanks to fifties from Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma. Mohammed Shami was named man-of-the-match for the second time this series.Kohli said he was pleased with India’s relentlessness in the three ODIs so far: “It’s amazing. Three clinical games for us. Couldn’t have asked for a better performance after the first two clinical games. The relentlessness of the side is something that really pleases me. We really enjoy ourselves and the guys believe in their skills and they are showing it on the field.”When a guy doesn’t get runs in a couple of games the opposition still feels that he’s gonna fire. I haven’t had a break for a long time. It’s been hectic. I can relax and enjoy my break. Someday someone has to take your place and that’s how it goes. Shubman is a very exciting talent and I saw him bat in the nets and I was like wow I was not even ten percent of that when I was 19,” he said at the post-match presentation ceremony.Virat Kohli has been rested for the final two ODIs and the T20I series against New Zealand. Rohit Sharma will take over as captain for the five limited-overs matches.advertisementBut Kohli will be thrilled with the way his team played. India were clinical and ruthless as the batting and bowling units clicked together perfectly.After three matches, India’s top three happen to be the three leading scorers in the series. Shikhar Dhawan has 169 runs, Rohit Sharma has 160 while Kohli finished with 148 runs including two scores in the 40s and his best of 60 on Monday.Kuldeep Yadav with 8 wickets is the most successful bowler in the series. Mohammed Shami (7) and Yuzvendra Chahal (6) are second and third respectively while Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Trent Boult are joint-fourth with four wickets apiece.No other New Zealand bowler has more than Boult’s four wickets and that itself reflects the massive gulf between the two teams.Also Read | Rohit Sharma equals MS Dhoni’s record for most ODI sixes for IndiaAlso Read | Ambati Rayudu barred from bowling in international cricket by ICCAlso Read | Hardik Pandya wants to forget what happened, was terrific in 3rd ODI: Sunil Gavaskarlast_img read more

Thunder Bay police chief charged in connection with disclosing confidential info aboutThunder Bay police chief charged in connection with disclosing confidential info about

first_imgWillow Fiddler Jorge BarreraAPTN National NewsThunder Bay’s police Chief Jean-Paul Levesque is facing charges of obstruction of justice and breach of trust in connection with allegedly disclosing confidential information about the city’s mayor Keith Hobbs, according to a court document.The OPP announced Wednesday Levesque was charged following a five-month investigation which began with the RCMP’s Ontario branch before it was passed on to the provincial police agency.According to the information sheet filed with the Ontario Court of Justice and describes the nature of a charge, Levesque allegedly disclosed confidential information about Hobbs between Dec. 14 and Dec. 22, 2016. The document does not reveal what sort of information was disclosed.Hobbs recently announced he wouldn’t be seeking reelection.The information sheet also stated Levesque is forbidden from contacting Hobbs, his wife Marisa Hobbs, along with the city manager Norm Gale, members of the Thunder Bay Police Services Board, including Chair Jacqueline Dojack and vice-chair Brian McKinnon, who is also city councilor,and police deputy chief Sylvie Hauth.Levesque is currently on medical leave.Julian Falconer, a lawyer who has battled the Thunder Bay police over its failures around investigating the deaths of Indigenous peoples in the city, criticized the OPP for releasing scant information about the investigating and the charges against such a consequential figure like a city police chief.“You only need to consider all of the displays you have seen by police leadership when they’ve laid big charges that are of public profiles, tables where the items seized in the search and seizure are laid out for the world to see…and the police having a press conference of the allegations,” said Falconer. “Compare and contrast how those situations are handled versus when a chief of police is charged. Is it handled in the same way?”The OPP press release on Levesque’s charges offered no information on the nature of the alleged offences “to protect the integrity of the investigation and the ongoing court processes.”Levesque’s lawyer Brian Gover said in a statement that his client “looks forward to fully responding to the allegations against him, and to his ultimate vindication.”wfiddler@aptn.cajbarrera@aptn.calast_img read more

UN Tech Bank opens in Turkey to help poor nations leapfrog developmentUN Tech Bank opens in Turkey to help poor nations leapfrog development

“Technology has to diffuse to all communities to enable them to leapfrog traditional development challenges,” said UN Deputy Secretary-General Amina Mohammed  at the launch of the new UN Technology Bank  in the Turkish city of Gebze; about 30 miles southeast of Istanbul, the country’s commercial hub. The idea of establishing a capacity-building institution dedicated to the least developed countries (LDCs) came out of the LDC Istanbul Conference in 2011 and was included in the world’s action plan to eliminate poverty when the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development was adopted by UN Member States in 2015.  The following year, the UN General Assembly approved the creation of the Technology Bank, which is listed among targets under Sustainable Development Goal 17 on partnership.Monday’s launch of the Technology Bank marks the first SDG target to have been officially reached, among the 169 targets that have been set as part of the 2030 Agenda. “The creation of the Technology Bank responds to the proposition that science, technology and innovation are essential elements to transform the economies of the LDCs, promote economic growth and enable countries to address their technology gaps and support their economic diversification and productive capacity building strategies,” said Fekitamoeloa Katoa Utoikamanu, Under Secretary-General and High Representative for the Least Developed Countries, Landlocked Developing Countries and Small Island Developing States.According to Acting Managing Director, Heidi Schroderus-Fox, the Bank is already starting its work in 16 LDCs, with STI reviews and technology needs assessments under way in Guinea, Haiti, Sudan, Timor Leste and Uganda. Projects aimed at improving digital access to research are also underway in Bangladesh, Bhutan, Burkina Faso, Liberia, Madagascar, Malawi, Mozambique, Nepal, Rwanda, Senegal, Uganda, and Tanzania, she said. read more

Clutha helicopter crash inquiry begins with a minutes silence and tributes toClutha helicopter crash inquiry begins with a minutes silence and tributes to

The tail of a police helicopter that crashed into a busy bar, killing 10 people, dipped towards the ground after a spluttering noise as the rotor stopped spinning, a fatal accident inquiry has heard.The first witnesses at the long awaited inquiry said the lights of the aircraft went out and described a “swooshing” sound as it fell on to the Clutha Vaults pub in Glasgow.The pilot, two crew members and seven customers were killed in the tragedy on November 29, 2013.The FAI, which is expected to last for around six months, began with a minute’s silence before personal tributes to six of those who died were read out.Tributes were paid to Samuel McGhee, 56, Gary Arthur, 48, Robert Jenkins, 61, Colin Gibson, 33, John McGarrigle, 57, and 44-year-old Mark O’Prey. No statement has been provided yet by the relatives of Joe Cusker, 59.There will be no personal statements on behalf of the pilot David Traill, 51, and the two crew members, constables Tony Collins, 43, and Kirsty Nelis, 36. Andrew Bergin, the first witness, told the inquiry he was watching the helicopter when it “made a spluttering sound”.He added: “The tail of the helicopter dipped and pointed to the ground. Simultaneously, the light on the helicopter went out.”It seemed to me that the rota stopped spinning. It was still turning, but not under power. It seemed to immediately lose height as soon as the spluttering occurred. Everything happened more or less at the same time.’ Firefighters at the scene of the crashCredit:Andrew Milligan/PA The inquiry heard in the first victim statement, read on behalf of Mr McGhee’s daughter Kerry, that the bus driver from Castlemilk, who took early retirement to care for his partner, was a good friend and neighbour and a sad loss to the community. The FAI, before Sheriff Principal Craig Turnbull, is taking place in a temporary court at Hampden Park in Glasgow.Its purpose is to determine the cause of the deaths, establish whether they could have been prevented and enable the sheriff to make recommendations that could prevent fatalities in similar circumstances.More than 100 people were in the bar when the Police Scotland helicopter, which was returning to its base on the banks of the River Clyde, crashed through the roof.An Air Accidents Investigations Branch (AAIB) report published in 2015 found two fuel supply switches were off and that the pilot did not follow emergency procedures after a fuel warning in the cockpit.The Crown Office previously said there was insufficient evidence for criminal proceedings.The inquiry is expected to involve around three months of evidence, spread over six  months this year. The helicopter is lifted out of the bar, three days after the crashCredit:Andy Buchanan/AFP Ian O’Prey paid tribute to his son MarkCredit:Jeff Mitchell/Getty clutha Colin Gibson was celebrating a friend’s birthday that night, and had never been in the bar before. His family said he “just happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time”.Mark O’Prey’s father, Ian, said his “wonderful son” had “lived life to the full” and described the Clutha as a venue the whole family frequented. He added that “after five years of silence from the Crown” he hoped the inquiry “arrives at some truth”.The sisters of Gary Arthur said in their statement: “He was caring, loving and could also be annoying in our younger years.”He was a joker and he continued to be a loving rogue throughout his life. Nothing will ever bring our brother back, but hopefully we will finally be given the chance to find closure.” clutha clutha Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Un nouveau petit poisson transparent et au ventre bleu découvert en AmazonieUn nouveau petit poisson transparent et au ventre bleu découvert en Amazonie

first_imgUn nouveau petit poisson transparent et au ventre bleu découvert en AmazonieDécrit récemment par des chercheurs brésiliens et britanniques dans la revue Ichthyological Exploration of Freshwaters, un minuscule poisson d’un nouveau genre et d’une nouvelle espèce, aux caractères physiques originaux, a été découvert dans un affluent de l’Amazone.Ces quelques poissons au dos transparent et au ventre bleu électrique, ne dépassent guère 1,7 cm de longueur mais les chercheurs se sont félicités de leur découverte. En effet, les spécimens ont été capturés en 2011 au Brésil, dans le Rio Negro – le plus grand affluent de l’Amazone, dont l’écosystème a pourtant été très étudié, soulignent les découvreurs. Jusqu’ici, ces petites créatures étaient donc passées totalement inaperçues.À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?Or, elles appartiennent à une nouvelle espèce, et même à un nouveau genre zoologique. Les ichtyologistes ont baptisé ce poisson Cyanogaster noctivaga, littéralement : “le vagabond nocturne au ventre bleu”. Ses mœurs nocturnes et sa petite taille expliquent pourquoi il avait jusqu’alors échappé aux biologistes. Outre sa coloration, c’est l’aspect inhabituel de son museau, de sa gueule et de ses dents qui a permis au Dr Ralf Britz, du Musée d’Histoire Naturelle de Londres, et à George Mattox, de l’université de São Paulo, de distinguer ce poisson des autres espèces de la sous-famille des Stevardiinae et de la famille des Characidae, auxquelles il appartient lui aussi.”La plupart des membres de la famille (…) ont une disposition et un nombre différents de dents. (…) C’est un étrange petit animal, complètement transparent excepté un motif de couleur unique. Le poisson est apparu comme une traînée bleue nageant rapidement dans le filet. L’individu le plus grand que nous avons recueilli était de 17,4 mm de long (…). Les eaux pauvres en minéraux semblent favoriser les petites tailles et Cyanogaster est un nouvel exemple de cette règle”, conclut le Dr Britz.

MCU News Phase 4 Poster SpiderMan Theories MoreMCU News Phase 4 Poster SpiderMan Theories More

first_imgStay on target We’ve got a list of every comic book TV show that’s in production, including all the Marvel Netflix shows. Learn how the Guardians story arc could change Avengers 4. Catch the Captain Marvel preview that will lead into the upcoming film. Stay on top of all things MCU here.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey. Captain Marvel is a long ways away, and Avengers 4 is even further. It’s a long hiatus between movies that MCU fans haven’t experienced in years. Some people worry that we’ll grow tired of Marvel movies if the studio keeps pumping them out at the pace they had been. Right now though, the wait to see what happens next is almost painful. So what do Marvel fans do? Speculate endlessly and make very cool art. This fandom’s the best.Redditor The DocofWho put together a fan-made poster that shows what the Marvel Cinematic Universe will likely look like once Avengers 4 is said and done. As much as we have no idea what will happen in that movie, Phase 4 of the MCU is an even bigger mystery. All we really have is a list of characters we’re pretty sure will survive to make more movies. Turns out that’s enough to make a pretty awesome poster. Even if there’s at least one character here who we’re pretty sure won’t survive.(via Reddit/TheDocofWho)The presence of, say Iron Man aside, it’s a good-looking poster. Black Widow could still be a part of it because she has her own solo movie in the works. Not so sure about Hawkeye, but if Black Widow’s coming back after Avengers 4, there’s no reason he couldn’t either. I also like that this poster implies that Vision won’t stay dead. I really, really want that to be the case. Also, don’t think we didn’t notice Bucky Barnes in that Captain America suit. That’s a definite possibility, and I’m pretty sure I know someone who’d love to see Sebastian Stan put on Cap’s suit.The real star of the poster is, of course, Captain Marvel. Thanks to Entertainment Weekly showing us the first images of the hero in costume earlier this week, she was able to take the front-and-center position on this fan-poster. And she looks so cool here. If anything, this is getting me more excited for Captain Marvel than anything post-Avengers 4. Seriously good work, The DocofWho.We’ll see how close this is to the actual Phase 4 after Avengers 4 premieres May 3, 2019.Spider-Man: Homecoming (Photo: Screenshot via YouTube)The MCU fandom doesn’t just make cool art, though. It also comes up with some eerily plausible theories. The latest one concerns Spider-Man: Far From Home, the second MCU Spidey solo movie. The theory says the upcoming sequel is actually going to be a prequel to Avengers: Infinity War. The theory comes from It states that even though Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige has said the sequel picks up minutes after Avengers 4, that could be something of a misleading statement. It could pick up after Dr. Strange (presumably) resets time in Avengers 4.The theory stems from set photos of Nick Fury and Maria Hill in Spider-Man: Far From Home. Remember, they were in the credits scene of Avengers: Infinity War. They drove through a chaotic street before disintegrating after Thanos’ snap. With Spider-Man coming out in the summer of 2019, Marvel will likely have to start marketing the movie before Avengers 4 comes out. Or at least, right around the same time. So how will they do that without spoiling potential resurrections? By resetting time so this movie takes place both after Avengers 4 and before Infinity War. This is some galaxy brain stuff here. It would also fit with a line Peter Parker has in Infinity War. “I should have stayed on that bus.” Maybe Doctor Strange makes it so he does.It’s a cool theory, and it totally feels like something the MCU would do. We’ll see for sure when Spider-Man: Far From Home premieres July 5, 2019.Just as interesting as what could be is learning what could have been. Going back and watching Captain America: The First Avenger, it’s hard to imagine anyone other than Hugo Weaving playing The Red Skull in that movie. Even if a completely different actor played the character in Infinity War. The villain’s MCU look is so iconic now, it’s super weird to see how different he was originally going to look. Concept Artist Charlie Wen shared an early sketch of the Red Skull that looks to be a whole other take on the character. It’s certainly a unique take on the character. Wen says he pushed with early versions of his concept art, and this is the result. I love his description of this drawing as “Like Wacky Loki.” It’s certainly accurate. Wen also notes that Red Skulls goals in the movie inspired him to draw him like some kind of alien, and honestly? It kind of fits. I’m glad we got Weaving’s performance in Captain America: The First Avenger, but I don’t think I would have minded a Red Skull that was a little closer to this concept art. It’s certainly creepier than the final product. Even if it might have spoiled the reveal of his true face in the movie.Meanwhile, movies aren’t the only part of the MCU worth watching out for. Iron Fist Season Two premiered on Netflix this weekend, and it’s a huge step up from Season One. An even bigger surprise though, is that it secretly contains a teaser for Season Three of Daredevil. When you reach the final 10th episode of the new season of Iron Fist, keep watching. Like any good MCU project, it has a post-credits scene.You’ll see a shadowy figure sitting in a confession booth. Then, you’ll hear a familiar voice. “I once believed that justice could be found in a court of law, and in the light of day,” it says. Yep, that’s Matt Murdock, alright. This weekend brought us a much improved Iron Fist and the first footage of Daredevil Season Three! While you really should give Iron Fist a shot, the post-credits scene is already on YouTube if you want to see it. For the time being, anyway.He’s even got the mask on. Daredevil is still my second-favorite MCU show. (Jessica Jones takes number one.) As curious as I was to see how Iron Fist changed, this is still the season I’m looking forward to most this year. I can’t wait to see more from the Devil of Hell’s Kitchen. I only wish we knew when that was going to happen. Maybe we’ll find out when Daredevil has its panel at New York Comic Con during the first weekend of October.

According to JP Morgan’s DS Kim and Jeremy An, VIP GGR likely declined by 26% to 28% for the month with mass up by around 7%, although “the mass segment came as a bigger disappointment as our mid-month checks and Macau trips suggested no sign of mass slowdown.”IAG understands rolling chip volume for Macau’s top four junkets has declined by around 30% year-on-year.August’s results mean that Macau’s GGR for the first eight months of 2019 is now down 1.9% to MOP$198.22 billion.Early estimates have September revenue enjoying a slight 1% to 2% year-on-year improvement.last_img read more

How A Juneau Kid Turned His Passion Into A ProfessionHow A Juneau Kid Turned His Passion Into A Profession

first_imgJon Devore started skiing and skydiving as a kid growing up in Juneau. Now, he skydives, speedrides and performs Hollywood stunts for a living.Download AudioIn the film “The Unrideables: Alaska Range” a former Juneau kid makes aggressive ski turns, flips and literally flies off snowy cliffs.Jon Devore started skiing and skydiving in Juneau. Now, he’s turned his passion into a profession by skydiving, speedriding and performing Hollywood stunts for a living.Unrideables is a documentary on speedriding, a combination of big mountain skiing and high speed parachute flying.“I have spent my whole life waiting for this moment – an opportunity to pioneer and ski mountains that were previously thought unrideable,” Devore says in the film.The 39-year-old grew up in Juneau.“If you didn’t get outside and do something, you’d go crazy living here,” Devore says. “And as a kid, whether it was scuba diving, skiing, kayaking, climbing – I went out and did everything that this beautiful area offers.”He started skiing Eaglecrest Ski Area at age 5 and, as a young adult, spent summers river raft guiding. His first time skydiving was in Juneau.“When I was a senior in high school, a guy rolled through the town offering tandem skydiving and I was his first client,” Devore says.After that, he was hooked. Devore moved to Arizona in 1995 to pursue skydiving full time. He became part of a group that was perfecting, what was at the time, a new style of skydiving – free flying.“Most people think skydiving is belly to earth falling flat. Well, we were taking it into three dimensions whether we were standing up vertically and having our feet go first, or going head down towards the earth or everything in the middle,” he says.Devore worked as a skydive coach and competed in world skydiving meets. After a little while, “the world of Hollywood and the stunt world started calling.”He coordinates, films and performs aerial stunts.“We did all the wingsuit scenes in Transformers 3 where we were flying our wingsuits through downtown Chicago through all the buildings having the robots chase us.In “Furious 7,” part of the “The Fast and the Furious” series, Devore is an aerial cameraman forcars that are dropped out of an airplane. He’s the lead actor’s stunt double in the remake of “Point Break,” due to come out in December. The original movie was what first inspired him to skydive.Devore is the manager of the Red Bull Air Force Team, which performs in about 60 shows a year doing stunts like skydiving into a Seattle Seahawks game or into a concert. In his 20 year career, Devore only recently experienced his first injury – a torn ACL.But he says he’s had close calls. During a movie shoot in New Zealand, DeVore was supposed to jump out of a helicopter, land on a big mountain, cut his parachute off and ski down. He had been practicing for weeks, but while filming,“My parachute didn’t open, my lines came out and they tied around my ski boots and bindings, so I basically tied myself up in the sky and my parachute never inflated. It was just being towed like a piece of garbage. And I took that all the way into the ground and impacted at probably 95-100 miles an hour, almost pure free fall speed,” Devore says.Devore was positive he was going to die. All he could think about was his wife. His curled up his body and hit the ground on his back.“Two minutes later, I stood up and didn’t have a broken bone, zero injuries, nothing,” Devore says.The mountain he landed on was part of the Invincible Snowfields.Despite the close calls, Devore loves what he does and is sticking with it for as long as he can. He has friends in their late 60s and early 70s still skydiving. He says, he may one day bring the sport back to Juneau and, just maybe, change some kid’s life.last_img read more

HD Kumaraswamy slams Darshan Yash asks where were these stars when MandyaHD Kumaraswamy slams Darshan Yash asks where were these stars when Mandya

first_imgHD Kumaraswamy.HD Kumaraswamy Twitter AccountKarnataka Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy has targeted Darshan and Yash, who have extended their support to Sumalatha in the upcoming Lok Sabha election from the Mandya constituency.”This pair of bullock is not meant for ploughing the field but to raid farmers’ crops. What do they know about the difficulties of farming?” the Karnataka Chief Minister slammed the actors, who recently promised to work like a pair of oxen to ensure Sumalatha’s victory.HD Kumaraswamy said that the stars did not turn up to help the farmers in distress nor responded to any of the people’s troubles. “Where were these stars when Mandya witnessed tragedies? Did they give their shoulders to the families of those who died in the bus accident? It was our CS Puttaraju who was with the people during the crisis,” he points out.Taking directly on Darshan, the Chief Minister stated that he can only play the hero role in movies and not in real life. “There is a video circulating on WhatsApp about his comments about people of Mandya. It is below my dignity to talk about the words mentioned in the clip. If the people listen to it, they will not let him enter Mandya,” he added.Sumalatha, the wife of late actor-politician Ambareesh, is contesting as an independent candidate from the Mandya constituency after the Congress party failed to give her the ticket due to seating-arrangement with its coalition partner, JD(S).As Mandya is a stronghold of JD(S), the party was not willing to give away the seat to Congress. It forced Sumalatha to file her nomination as an independent candidate. Yash with Sumalatha and DarshanTwitterHD Kumaraswamy’s son Nikhil Gowda is contesting against her. However, a section of Sandalwood and the BJP have extended its support to Sumalatha.last_img read more

Google promises better protection against deceptive Chrome inline installationsGoogle promises better protection against deceptive Chrome inline installations

first_imgGoogle promises better protection against deceptive Chrome inline installations by Martin Brinkmann on January 05, 2018 in Google Chrome – 5 commentsGoogle announced today on the official Chromium blog that it will improve the Chrome browser’s protection against deceptive inline installations.When Chrome launched, extensions could be installed from anywhere. Sites sprang up that hosted multiple extensions, and any developer or company could offer extensions on their sites. The Chrome Web Store was released in December 2010, more than two years after the release of the first version of Google Chrome.Google changed the process in 2012 when it introduced inline installations as a way to better protect users.Inline installations, along with changes to Chrome’s support for non-Chrome Web Store installations, required that developers uploaded their extensions to the Chrome Web Store first before they could offer them on their websites or third-party websites.Google’s idea was to enforce the use of the Chrome Web Store for all extensions so that it could scan them and block them from being distributed this way. Nav Jagpal and Benjamin Ackerman, two members of Google’s Safe Browsing team, note that the inline installation system reduced user complaints by 65%.They acknowledge however that “fewer than 3% of extensions” engage in “deceptive or confusing install flows” today, and that these “generate 90% more user complaints on average”.Google’s plan to combat inline extensions that make up the less than 3%? More automation of course. The company plans to upgrade the automated inline installation abuse detection system to improve “detection speed” and improve the detection of extensions that abuse the system.Google will use machine learning ” to evaluate each inline installation request for signals of deceptive, confusing, or malicious ads or webpages” as well. If Google’s algorithms detect signals, Chrome will block the inline installation request and redirect Chrome users to the extension’s Chrome Web Store presence instead.Google published additional information on the company’s Chrome Developers website. The Enforcement FAQ highlights when developers are notified and why Google disables inline installations for specific extensions.Closing WordsGoogle doing something against abuse of the inline installation system is a good thing, but I’m more worried about the company’s extension vetting process.  Incidents in the past have shown time and time again that malicious or invasive extensions will slip through the cracks and pass Google’s automatic examinations (see Google pulls crypto-mining Chrome extension Archive Poster or Another Chrome extension horror story: coinhive and domain registration)Now You: What should Google do in your opinion against malicious extensions?SummaryArticle NameGoogle promises better protection against deceptive Chrome inline installationsDescriptionGoogle announced today on the official Chromium blog that it will improve the Chrome browser’s protection against deceptive inline installations.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more
