Oklahoma State head coach Mike Gundy likes to try and keep up with the latest trends. Last time it was hoverboarding; today, it was Pokemon GO.The craze, which is based on the old card game Pokemon, has taken the country by storm. Pokemon GO is played on a downloadable cellphone app, and CNN has a breakdown of what it is all about. Anyway, the app, which is free to download and play, uses GPS to make a cartoony map of your neighborhood and basically anywhere you go. In this colorful, slightly Big-Brother-y version of reality, Pokémon are interspersed throughout, and when you come within range of a Pokémon you can “approach” them and they will show up on your phone.Today, Gundy posted a picture of him catching a Pokemon named Pidgey inside T. Boone Pickens Stadium.Gotta catch ’em all! #POKEmon pic.twitter.com/j0Kd5CyD7J— Mike Gundy (@CoachGundy) July 11, 2016Ok, who had Mike Gundy as the first coach to publicly acknowledge that he plays Pokemon Go? Our bet would have been Jim Harbaugh, because, well why not? [ Pistols Firing ]
London: A heavily pregnant Indian-origin woman was shot dead with an arrow allegedly by her jealous ex-husband in a “deliberate and calculated act of revenge” last November at her east London home, a UK court was told. According to prosecutors, 51-year-old Indian-origin Ramanodge Unmathallegadoo, armed with two crossbows, burst out of the garden shed at a suburban home in Ilford area of east London, and shot arrows at his ex-wife Devi Unmathallegadoo as she tried to flee upstairs. The 35-year-old Devi, also known as Sana Muhammad after she converted to Islam to marry Imtiaz Muhammad, died of internal injuries after the attack. The arranged marriage of Devi and Ramanodge Unmathallegadoo ended in divorce in 2014, after which the woman went on to marry Imtiaz. She had three children, aged 18, 14 and 12, with Ramanodge and two young girls, aged five and two, with Muhammad. Her unborn baby was later rescued by doctors in an emergency Caesarean operation following the attack. Ramanodge, who had been arrested and charged soon after the attack, denies the murder and attempted destruction of the unborn child as his trial got underway at the Old Bailey court in London this week. “This was a quite deliberate and calculated act of revenge on his part intended to cause at the very least the death of Devi and the extinction of the child she carried,” Prosecutor Peter Wright told the jury on Tuesday. At the time of the attack in November last year, neighbours heard Imtiaz screaming for help outside the house and described seeing a 30-cm-long crossbow being carried out of the home by police officers as evidence. It emerged in court that the accused had gathered a cache of weapons and tools in preparation for the attack, including two new crossbows, bolts, a hammer, a knife in a homemade sheath, cable ties and duct tape. The prosecution claims that Ramanodge, a former hospital site manager, planned to restrain his ex-wife and her husband and then kill them and their unborn child. However, he was disturbed when Imtiaz took a box to store in the shed and discovered his hiding spot which ended in him running into the house, the jury was told. “Imtiaz saw the defendant, who was at the bottom of the stairs, shoot Devi who was halfway up the stairs. The effect on her was immediate and she fell to the floor, said Wright. The court heard that after the attacker was restrained and disarmed by two of his older children, he told them: “It would have been easier if you guys weren’t here, like I would have done it.” Ramanodge later claimed he had shot his former wife by accident and had intended to kill only Imtiaz. However, the prosecution claims that the evidence will show that that his ex-wife was the “principal target”. The trial is ongoing and expected to conclude in the coming weeks.

He caught seven touchdowns.Brown excited OSU fans and impressed NFL teams when he caught five passes for 72 yards, scoring four times against Oklahoma in the third game of the 2016 season. But Brown caught just two touchdowns in the remaining 10 games.Before the 2016 season, Brown played in 13 games, all during his freshman season, but caught just a single pass. In fall camp, prior to his second season in Columbus, Brown suffering a broken left leg that would keep him out the entire season, allowing OSU to use a redshirt.Brown’s 19 reps on the bench press at the NFL combine tied him for the second-most among wide receivers in this draft class.This marks the third year in a row a Buckeyes receiver was drafted. In 2015, Devin Smith and Evan Spencer were taken by the New York Jets and Washington Redskins, respectively.

Parma boss Roberto D’Aversa believes “nothing is impossible” as they prepare to host Juventus.Parma started their Serie A season with a 2-2 draw against Udinese, where they blew a two-goal lead and 1-0 loss to SPAL. D’Aversa is now hoping his team can take points off Juventus.“Juventus have as their greatest strengths the possession play and mentality of their Coach. We must do well to remain compact and allow few spaces between the lines,” D’Aversa said in his Press conference.[via Football Italia]“Clearly it’s a difficult game, but nothing is impossible. We’ll try to play the perfect match and hope Juve have an off day.”“At this moment, there’s more talk about Ronaldo than the club.

Allegri gives a sense of calm to the team and that was decisive last season in the race with Napoli.“We must use this motivation and pride in facing prestigious opponents. In my career, the most decisive victories were earned when nobody expected them. Nothing is impossible in life.”

In March, Condé Nast’s Glamour magazine reintroduced itself to the world with a redesigned publication. The idea for the redesign, editor-in-chief Cindi Levie told FOLIO: in an interview, came from a need to update the magazine to reflect the desires and personalities of contemporary women.Now in the digital space the brand is looking to do the same, rolling out its newly redesigned website this week with enhanced functionality and avenues for social engagement—a move the magazine says reflects the desires of its target millennial audience.“We’ve seen really rapid growth on social media, both on platforms and as referral traffic back to the site,” says Mike Hofman, digital managing director for the brand. “We started to learn things as we tracked more and more of the social media referrals about how completely obsessed with visuals and rich imagery our readers were. We started to get a sense that the way people browse the Web is changing—as we were going into the relaunch, we knew we wanted the site to be way more visual than it had been before.” Hofman says that Glamour.com has almost doubled its online traffic year-over-year, growing to about 5.5 million monthly unique visitors. The brand’s total social media footprint has also risen to a total 5 million across the major networking platforms. Glamour tracks the most shared, commented on or liked pieces of content across their various social media sites and used this information during the planning of its site redesign. “We wanted everything to be super sharable so that a real sense of community could be fostered by the site,” says Hofman. “We see this year and this relaunch as a way to signify that we’re a site that competes not just in the magazine category but with digital-native competitors as well.”In addition to social widgets, every image that appears on Glamour.com can be instantly pinned to a Pinterest pin board. Additionally, the brand has begun commissioning original photos, illustrations and infographics specifically for the Web and designed for social media. The site publishes about 70 pieces of new content a day across its seven core channels. “Rich and luxurious images are so important for us and something the magazine has always done well,” says Hofman. “With the refreshing that happened, the visuals in print are so fantastic and dynamic. We wanted to capture that same energy while still being true as a digital product since there are nuances with the two audiences.”SEE ALSO: With Redesign, Glamour Ditches Fashion Title SamenessWhile making the website more social was important, Hofman says the digital infrastructure was also refreshed to support the new image-heavy, socially geared site and its growing mobile audience that now represents 25 percent of all website traffic.“Early on we decided we wanted to do responsive design because our mobile audience is incredibly important to us,” he says. “We wanted to focus on the responsive piece because in the past we felt that the mobile experience was not consistent brand wise or design wise with the desktop experience. From a behind the scenes work-flow perspective, if you made a change on the desktop site you had to go in and manually make those changes on our mobile site. Keeping the two in synch was difficult. As the desktop site became more complex the mobile site felt like a lot of mobile sites do—clean and simple with a string of headlines but not much more than that.”Providing a seamless experience between the desktop and mobile phone was one of Glamour’s biggest challenges, adds Hofman, who says the site was redesigned with HTML5 to provide a cohesive experience. Additionally, when redesigning the site the brand considered its advertisers—now some ads remain stationary on the site even though a user scrolls, giving partners more exposure.

(Phys.org)—Computer scientists Christos Sakellariou and Peter Bentley working together at University College in London, have built a new kind of computer that runs instruction segments randomly, rather than sequentially, resulting in a computer than in theory, should never crash. Citation: Researchers build self-repairing “systemic” computer (2013, February 15) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2013-02-self-repairing.html One of the main reasons that computers crash is because of the way they execute instructions, i.e. sequentially. Code is written in a step-by-step fashion and the computer follows a counter that retrieves lines of code in the proper order, executing each one before moving on to the next. Problems come in when the counter becomes mixed up, or code that has been executed fails to return control so that the next line can be run. To get around that problem, the researchers in Britain have built a computer that doesn’t run sequentially at all. It runs chunks of information that is made up of both code and data, and does so in random fashion, removing the sequential processing problem. The result, they say, is a computer that is able to repair itself on the fly, and won’t theoretically ever crash.The whole idea is based on nature’s distributed error correction processing abilities as demonstrated by such brilliant constructs as the human brain. As people exist, they think, they react and respond. They do all manner of things, none of which occurs as the result of a sequential processer in a central part of the brain. Instead, things are done in a distributed manner, with different biological processors working on different things at the same time. To make this happen with a computer, the researchers built a Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) which is essentially a bit of electronics that serves as a sort of traffic cop. Its main job is to make sure that different segments or “systems” as the researchers call them, get called on, albeit, in random fashion, and to allocate a place for them to run. One of the benefits of such a system is that no system has to wait for another to finish before running, which means the computer can run several systems at the same time. Thus, the FPGA is a resource manager, though it also serves as the manager of information that flows between systems.Because the systems are independent of one another, there is no crash if one of them is unable to carry out its instructions. But better than, that, other systems can be introduced into the system whose purpose is to detect problems with other systems and rerun them if necessary, or to change them slightly, if need be, to allow them to complete their assigned tasks. In the computer world, that’s known as self-repairing code and it’s something many people would like to see in computers running in the real world. With this new computer, it’s been demonstrated that such a computer can be built.

Kolkata: The nationwide shutdown called by the Congress and Left parties against the fuel price hike on Monday evoked lukewarm response in West Bengal, with vehicular traffic remaining near normal. The ruling Trinamool Congress (TMC) had previously opposed the strike and said the state government would take every possible step to ensure that the public life remains unaffected. In Kolkata, most of the shops and markets remained open while the city’s metro service functioned normally. Also Read – Rain batters Kolkata, cripples normal life However, the number of commuters were significantly less in the early hours on Monday compared to other working days. A large number of public and private buses were seen plying in the city’s important points including Shyambazar five point, Esplanade crossing, Jadavpur and Ruby crossing. The train service in Sealdah and Howrah section under the Eastern Railway was temporarily disrupted as the strike supporters blocked rail movements in Jadavpur and Sreerampur stations.

No untoward incidents of violence or clashes were reported. Protesting against the steep hike in fuel price under the BJP-led NDA government at the Centre, the Congress called for the shutdown on Monday. The Left parties including CPI-M, CPI, RSP has also called for a 12-hour long ‘hartal’ (strike) on Monday against the Narendra Modi government’s policies.
