Also known as 2019-nCoV, the virus causes COVID-19. The sample was isolated from a patient in the U.S. (NIAID-RML via AP) Someone under 19 in Indiana has died from the coronavirus. That person was the first that young to die from the disease in the state, said Indiana’s state health commissioner Dr. Kris Box, at Thursday’s daily briefing on coronavirus.“We’ve seen a few deaths occur in young people nationally. But, here in Indiana nearly 91 percent of the individuals who have lost their lives from this disease have been over the age of 60,” she said.Box also noted that Indiana passed 1,000 deaths from the disease. She called the number released this afternoon, 1,007, more than heartbreaking.Gov. Eric Holcomb didn’t show up for the briefing until near the end, and via remote. He had been touring the GM plant in Kokomo with Vice Pres. Pence. He noted that 600 ventilators had been built at the plant so far, and that it was set up in just 17 days.“And then to have General Motors and Ventec Life Systems go from seeing that partnership where they’re used to building big parts, and now getting into these very small, where you have to be 100 percent correct, has to work every second of every day.”Holcomb remarked on the smaller size and portability of the ventilators being built there, the portability making it easier to keep patients up and moving.Box noted that when testing increases next week, through a partnershp with private company OptumServ, that as many as 10,000 Hoosiers per day could be tested. She said the state arrived at that number, basing it on CDC guidance that says about 6,600 Hoosiers need to be tested per day.“We also are working with our local health partners to identify areas of the greatest need across the state to locate addtional 30 Optum sites,” she said. Twenty testing sites will initially be selected, and as many as 30,000 people per week could be tested at the beginning of the venture.last_img read more

Service, attacking errors are holding Syracuse back

first_imgDown 24-16 in its conference home-opener, Syracuse fended off three-straight set points in the first set. To keep the rally going, head coach Leonid Yelin had freshman Marina Markova serve. At the time, she was the nation’s second-most accurate server.From behind the service line, Markova rose up and slapped the ball with her right hand. The ball started to dip too early, smacked the net, and cost SU the set in an eventual 3-1 loss to Wake Forest.In that loss, Syracuse (5-10, 2-6 Atlantic Coast) committed 15 service errors and 27 attacking errors, most of them occurring at crucial parts of the game. While errors are a natural part of the game, the Orange struggle with extended periods of sloppy play in tight sets that allow opponents to gain momentum by capitalizing off of Syracuse mistakes. Though SU has dealt with injuries and lineup instability, the main problem, coaches and players said, is more mental.But Yelin and rest of his staff know that this year’s team has the talent to be successful. Syracuse ranks in the top five of the ACC in hitting percentage, and sophomore Polina Shemanova leads the conference in kills per set as well as total points. But to reduce unforced mistakes, the first step for SU comes with an improved mindset and focus.“That’s something every player has to deal with herself,” Yelin said, “How can she stay in the game and not to be afraid? At the same time she has to be mentally prepared and not to take away anything she’s been doing in practice.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textEva Suppa | Digital Design EditorIn a Florida road trip over the weekend, though, those “stupid errors” appeared in back-to-back losses to Miami and Florida State, assistant coach Derryk Williams said. In a straight-set loss to the Hurricanes, Syracuse tallied 19 attacking errors and 12 service errors. The following game against the Seminoles, the Orange committed a season-high 21 attacking errors and nine service errors.For the coaching staff, finding ways to boost the team’s confidence and keep errors down starts with good practice sessions. In addition to taking service reps during practice, SU outside hitters simulate real game situations by forcing hitters to make quick reads. If there is a double or triple block, the outside hitters need to adjust accordingly. These simulated drills also help hitters develop chemistry with each other, Shemanova said.The next jump that this team has to make is taking the mindset they have at practice and taking it into the game, Yelin said. Still, it’s possible no amount of reps can necessarily alleviate mental lapses. While in-game mistakes and errors are unavoidable, Yelin doesn’t want his players to be haunted by them.In their home stretch against No. 3 Pittsburgh and Virginia, the Orange found the consistently clean play that they’ve been looking for. Against Pitt, Syracuse pushed the Panthers to set point in the first set before two attacking errors from Markova gave Pitt the win. Against Virginia, Syracuse also reduced its service errors, committing just three in the victory.“We showed up and we played for three straight sets and it’s the first time this year we played three straight without huge lulls in between,” Williams said. “We’ve had a few times where we’re up a bunch, and then we let them get five-straight points with stupid errors.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on October 23, 2019 at 10:39 pm Contact Nick: [email protected]last_img read more

Bayern prepare to take revenge on Eintracht with Dortmund looming

first_img“Each of us has at least one game without an audience behind us and we know what to expect,” he said. “Before the game against Union we trained in our stadium. So the team knows what kind of atmosphere they can expect. We like playing at the Allianz Arena.”Bayern lead Borussia Dortmund by four points and the two teams meet on Tuesday, when Bayern travel to the Ruhr for a potentially pivotal match.Flick insisted his team would not be distracted on Saturday.“The duel with Dortmund next week will not matter. We’ll play against Frankfurt. That’s the next step we want to take. Only then will we look towards Dortmund.”Bayern have three long-term injury absentees: Philippe Coutinho and Corentin Tolisso (who both underwent ankle surgery in April) and Niklas Suele who is recovering from a knee ligament injury.“Niklas has expressed the desire to play this season. We must see what the stability in the knee allows,” said Flick. Munich, Germany | AFP | Bundesliga leaders Bayern continue their renewed season with only one injury doubt ahead of a home game against Eintracht Frankfurt on Saturday.Coach Hansi Flick said in an on-line press conference on Friday that central midfielder Thiago was unlikely to play because of a hip muscle problem.“We’ll have to wait,” Flick said.Frankfurt are 13th in the table and lost at home to Borussia Moenchengladbach last Saturday for a fourth straight Bundesliga defeat, but they humiliated Bayern 5-1 in November.Even though Bayern were reduced to 10 men after nine minutes that day when Jerome Boateng was sent off, that defeat cost Flick’s predecessor Niko Kovac his job.“Frankfurt overwhelmed us there with their dynamism,” Flick said. “It’s a different game, with different conditions. It starts at zero.”Bayern won behind closed doors away to Union Berlin last Sunday. This will be their first match at home since the  league resumed. Bayern Munich have a chance to atone for their 5-1 humiliation at Frankfurt in Novembercenter_img Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more

Canucks Defeat Wild to Extend Northwest Division Lead

first_imgLeigh Ramsden lives in Vancouver and is an avid Canucks fan, having been a partial season ticket holder for over 10 years. He’s old enough to have witnessed all three Stanley Cup losses, as such, his prime goal is to remove those scars by seeing a Cup brought to Vancouver. Leigh is Fighting For Stanley’s (www.fightingforstanley.ca/vancouver) west coast correspondent, and will also blog after all Canuck games for The Nelson Daily. Also, I thought that before the season started, NHL head office decreed that players giving a goaltender a needless snow shower would be assessed an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty.  This clearly happened to Schneider tonight, but no call was made.Broadcast Observation of the Day:  Two items of note tonight:  First, I was wholly unimpressed at Shorthouse’s attempted revival/homage of Jim Robson’s famous call after game 6 of the 1994 Stanley Cup Final, when while referring to Trevor Linden, he proclaimed “He’ll play, you know he’ll play… he’ll play on crutches if he has to.”  Shorthouse attempted this one before the game in reference to Henrik… and it just didn’t come off very well.  Something like that should be saved for a really important game, not an early-February divisional game.Also, again, Garrett delivered a great little story about how the old rink in Minnesota back in the WHA days had clear glass boards.  I had never heard of that, and found it quite amazing to think that would have been the case.  Garrett was pointing out that as a goalie, it was next to impossible to pick the puck up without the white background of the boards.  I found this web page with a writeup of the old St. Paul Civic Center, and it contains a picture which shows the clear boards – very unique!Looking ahead: Vancouver travels to Calgary to face the motivated Flames on Saturday night. With his team down 5-2, and with less than a minute to play, he decided to ice forward Brad Staubitz, who is the Wild’s tough guy.  Staubitz went after Edler with a clean check, however, then decided to give rookie Cody Hodgson a cheap shot on the way by. In the ensuing scrum, Lapierre was assessed a five minute major for spearing along with a game misconduct.  In a post-game interview, Lapierre stated he was merely trying to lift his stick, and that he didn’t think his stick even made contact with the Wild player.  Replays support his version of the story, although I can see how maybe a two minute minor could have been assessed.  Expect the league to reverse this game misconduct upon review tomorrow morning.At the next whistle, Wild pest Cal Clutterbuck decided to “square off” with Dan Hamhuis of all people.  This actually led to one of the funnier things I have seen in a long time – Kevin Bieksa, tied up by a linesman in front of the net, did the only thing he could, which was throw his glove at Clutterbuck!  Unfortunately, it hit Hamhuis in the back.  He was immediately assessed a ten minute misconduct for his trouble.  This was a very amusing moment.All in all, Yeo was silly tonight.  I know he must be frustrated with his team, but throwing out guys like Staubitz at the end of what was a one-sided game is a very schoolyard tactic. There’s a time and place to put your tough guys out but at the end of a game when you’re down by three on home ice is not that time nor place. As John Garrett pointed out on the telecast, Brad Staubitz played only 6:39 tonight, so Yeo put him out in the last minute?  An earlier shift saw Staubitz attempting to goad Bitz into a fight as well, who declined.Anyway – I don’t really know what Yeo was trying to prove, but whatever it was, it didn’t work.  His team is in a tailspin (now 5-14-5 in their last 24 games) and they aren’t coming out of it – and trying to “act tough” against the Canucks is not going to change anything in the standings. VIGNEAULT SPREADS ICE TIME OUT, TEAM PLAYS BETTERAlain Vigneault has changed his lines up the last couple of times out.  As I mentioned, tonight he stuck with the lines from the third period of the Nashville game. This meant the lines were Sedin-Sedin-Bitz, Kesler-Burrows-Booth, Malhotra-Hansen-Raymond, and Hodgson-Lapierre-Duco.  Also of note, Keith Ballard was a late scratch with some neck issues, so Andrew Alberts drew into the lineup on the third pairing with Aaron Rome.One thing that struck me tonight was that AV seemed to really balance the ice time, more so that he has done for most of the year.  The Sedin line only played 12 minutes at even strength, approximately the same amount as the Malhotra and Hodgson lines. All four lines were effective tonight, which has been a rare occurrence of late.  In addition, the third defensive pairing of Alberts and Rome also played an equal amount of minutes as the other pairings.  All in all, it was a very balanced game for the team, and they responded with a very good overall effort.  It was a nice change from the coach. As I’ve mentioned before, AV is going to need to be comfortable using all the lines in the playoffs if the team is going to be successful.GM Mike Gillis has done a considerable amount of work upgrading his bottom-six forwards.  To my chagrin, Vigneault seems hesitant to use these players – I think the team is better when everyone is involved and getting in on the action.  Tonight, however, was a different story, and I hope that AV learned something tonight. PARTING SHOTSQuick comments:  Minnesota’s top line of Koivu-Heatley-Setoguchi was dangerous all night.  Unfortunately for the Wild, they were the only line that displayed any level of skill whatsoever. The Vancouver Canucks continued their road trip on Thursday night, paying a visit to the Xcel Energy Center to face the Minnesota Wild in a Northwest Division tilt.  Vancouver was full value for a 5-2 win.The Canucks gave up a goal just 13 seconds into the game, failing to score first in for the first time in their last 13 road games.  Alex Edler, who had a pedestrian first period, stood still at his own blue line while Devin Setoguchi pushed the puck past him, where Dany Heatley skated in on Canuck goaltender Cory Schneider and scored to give the home side the early lead.After that, the game was all Canucks.  Vancouver scored twice before the first period was done, Daniel Sedin scoring on a 5 on 3 power play, and Max Lapierre shoveling home the puck after a scramble in front of Minnesota netminder Niklas Backstrom.  The Canucks were the better team in the first period.Henrik Sedin then scored 50 seconds into the second period, converting a beautiful backhand saucer pass from new linemate Byron Bitz.  The balance of the second period featured the Canucks consistently frustrating the Wild, limiting their offensive opportunities.  It was the first time in recent memory that the Canucks have “won” the second.The third period featured chippy play as the Canucks scored again to extend the lead to 4-1, after a nice deflection by Manny Malhotra.  The goal came against the run of play, as the Wild had ramped up their level as the Canucks went out to play a “good road period” with a two goal lead. Minnesota got to within two when Setoguchi scored on a late power play, before Ryan Kesler put the Wild out of their misery with an empty-netter.  The shots actually wound up in Minnesota’s favour, 24-20, but this does not tell the story of the game.Vancouver was never threatened in this contest.  Although they spotted the Wild a 1-0 advantage right off the hop, the Canucks just played their game and created enough offense to get back out in front. More importantly, the Canucks were very responsible in their own end.  Schneider played well, but did not have to deal with any odd-man rushes or other crazy gaffes by the team in front of him. Vigneault stuck with his line combinations from the third period of the Nashville game, with the exception that Mike Duco was recalled in Dale Weise’s absence and played alongside Lapierre and Hodgson. MINNESOTA RESORTS TO SCHOOLYARD TACTICSMinnesota coach Mike Yeo, who must have been frustrated given his post-game comments, embarrassed himself late in the third period.  NHL officiating continues to be a problem.  I try not to complain about it too much, but sometimes the decisions made are baffling.  Tonight, Bitz received a penalty for goaltender inference when he was clearly pushed into Backstrom by a Wild defenseman; his skates were turned sideways as he was trying to stop.  Also, the decisions at the end of the game were also suspect. If you’d like a humorous look at the Bieksa glove-toss, see this recap and video posted at the Legion of Blog.  Pay special attention to Bieksa’s post-game quote, it’s hilarious.center_img Bitz continued to impress.  His pass to Henrik was a thing of beauty, as he saucered it over the defenseman’s stick.  His skating looked better tonight as well.  If he continues to play well, he provides a nice option as a Sedin linemate. Henrik’s consecutive game streak was in doubt after suffering a deep bone bruise in his foot after blocking a shot in the last game.  He played the game and looked no worse for wear.  He and his brother appeared to continue their slow climb out of their slump, each registering a goal tonight. Lapierre and Clutterbuck fought early in the third period.  Lapierre is now tied for the team lead in fights with Dale Weise. Minnesota played very chippy and were constantly trying to push, prod, annoy, or fight the Canucks.  This isn’t a tactic that we have seen from recent Wild teams, and I’m not sure why they started now.  They do better as the Minnesota Mild than the Minnesota Wild.last_img read more

File Sharers, Get Ready For Copyright Violation Warnings

first_imgA Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Tags:#copyright#web john paul titlow Related Posts Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hostingcenter_img Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… After a series of delays, the Center for Copyright Information’s “six strikes” anti-piracy scheme has a launch date. Starting on November 28, AT&T, Comcast, Cablevision, Time Warner and Verizon will start sending out warnings to users who download copyrighted material without authorization. But don’t quit those Torrent networks just yet.The CCI is a partnership between the Recording Industry Association of America, Motion Picture Association of America, and the major Internet service providers in the U.S. Under the group’s Copyright Alert System, Internet users who download unauthorized material will receive a series of messages explaining that it’s illegal to do so and encouraging them to stop. Initial concerns that the system could lead to users being cut off from the Internet appear to be unfounded. It’s really about educating (okay, scaring) people rather than punishing them. “Alerts will be non-punitive and progressive in nature,” reads the CCI’s website. “Successive alerts will reinforce the seriousness of the copyright infringement and inform the recipient how to address the activity that is precipitating the alerts.”After six warnings, the provider may mete out penalties, although it’s not entirely clear what those would be. Slowing down, or throttling, customers’ Internet connections is apparently on the table, but users won’t be kicked offline permanently, according to the CCI. The most egregious offenders would be deemed “unreachable” by the program and subsequently ignored, according to TorrentFreak.  From the look of it, the system is largely toothless. While it might not stop hardcore copyright violators, though, receiving a scary-sounding warning from a service provider might be enough to stop casual downloaders in their tracks. If all goes according to the CCI’s plan, that may lead to a substantial decrease in copyright infringement overall.The system will arrive at a pivotal moment in what are often referred to as the Copyright Wars. Earlier this year, big content’s fight against piracy began to resemble literal warfare when New Zealand police raided the mansion of  Kim Dotcom. The Megaupload founder will stand trial for copyright infringement and related charges next year, but isn’t wasting anytime trying to get his latest venture – a music service called Megabox – off the ground. Dotcom’s arrest came within days of another watershed moment in the Copyright Wars. After overwhelming opposition from tech companies and the public, the controversial anti-piracy legislation known as SOPA and PIPA were effectively killed after losing support in the U.S. Congress. The Copyright Alert System is the latest weapon in the content industry’s war on piracy, having failed on the legislative front and gotten nowhere by suing consumers directly. With the CAS, they’re taking a decidedly less draconian approach, hoping to scare enough people away from illegal downloading to make a difference. Whatever the results are, they will no doubt help inform the next phase of this battle, which is inevitably on the horizon.   8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Marketlast_img read more

Dojo brings critical security to smart home automation

first_imgCate Lawrence Internet of Things Makes it Easier to Steal You… The introduction of smart home devices into the average home is on an upward trajectory with Gartner forecasting the number of connected devices to reach more than 21 billion by 2020.With this growth comes an increased risk of cyber attacks. As we get closer to a time where home electronics are embedded with IoT technology whether we like it or not, the issue of cyber security continues to be the white, hot glaring, elephant in the room.See also: Discover the top home security systems of 2017While security should be present from first design and embedded through various iterations of hardware and software, the reality is that there’s a lot of devices that are either created with inherent security flaws or fail to be adequated updated as time and technology moves on.A recent survey by Canonical Ubuntu of 2000 consumers regarding firmware updates of connected devices revealed that:Only 31% of consumers that own connected devices perform updates as soon as they become available.A further 40% of consumers have never consciously performed updates on their devicesNearly one in ten (8%) didn’t even know what firmware was48% of consumers are unaware that connected devices in their home could be used to conduct a cyber attack37% believe they are not “sufficiently aware” of the risks that connected devices poseDojo by BullGuard has created a solution with a difference. (The Israeli start-up Dojo Labs was acquired by security firm BullGuard in 2016.) I spoke to Yossi Atias, General Manager of IoT Security of BullGuard, to learn more during last week’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.He showed me their digital security device which consists of a sleekly designed ‘pebble’ that is easy to set up and free to move about the home, and a dock that resides with the household router.Rings of light on the Dojo pebble illuminate red, yellow or green when activity is detected on the user’s network. An app allows users to interact with the Dojo pebble via a simple, intuitive messaging interface that prompts them to allow or block network activity and informs them of potential cyber threats.How Dojo worksThe Dojo by BullGuard device monitors the home network 24/7 against cyber threats through enterprise-class intrusion detection and prevention to identify and block real time attacks, a smart firewall, and encrypted web access to smart devices. Atias explained that the device operated on three layers of security:“The first one is the perimeter: to ensure people that are not unauthorised cannot access your devices. The second layer is focused on intrusion detection and prevention: if something has already happened, how do you detect it, and how you mitigate it?  It looks for activity on the network that indicates either attack vectors using or already existing malware and their signatures. The third layer is anomaly detection and behavioural analysis that occurs as the device constantly sends metadata to our cloud platform. “The security system is embedded with AI and machine learning technology as the more it familiarizes itself with a home’s smart devices, the smarter it becomes in detecting, defending and mitigating against cyber threats and privacy breaches. A point of difference to other security systems is that Dojo by BullGuard uses the data to do analysis, not just customer-by-customer but within the whole subscriber base as a whole. As Atias details:“It’s essentially a crowd sourced security platform where the learnings from consumers devices work for the benefit of all the users themselves. So if we find for example, a vulnerability in one consumer device in one home and we know there are other users that own the same device, we push the mitigation before it even has the chance to attack the other devices. “Atias explained that he decided to focus on home security due to identifying an unmet need:“There is no one doing this for the consumer. In enterprise and industrial applications, you have a whole team of security. In my home, I am the chief security officer. With the average consumer, no one assumes responsibility, not the service provider or the device vendor.Instead of trying to make everyone a cyber security expert we provide this as a service. We of course, want people to be educated and aware but in reality, security isn’t at the forefront of most consumers minds.  You won’t even find any security related information when you buy a device so how could you compare different products? Consumer electronics traditionally launch a model and want to shift as many units as possible and then the company will discard it and move onto the new one. There’s no service model behind each device so expecting a consumer to keep track of all the software updates is not realistic. Our system is totally agnostic. We assume that the security is bad from the beginning. That’s always our assumption.”Recently honored with the prestigious Good Design award in the safety and security category, Dojo by BullGuard will begin shipping in April this year and will retail for $199, including 12-months of service.
