first_imgVirgil van Dijk says Liverpool will be “trying to win everything” this season as he warned his team-mates “anyone who doesn’t believe better stay at home.”The Reds extended their flawless start to the new campaign with victory over Paris Saint-Germain in their opening Champions League group game on Tuesday night. Jurgen Klopp’s side have now won their first six games in all competitions, the first time they have managed that since 1990. Klopp’s message so far has been consistent, challenging his team to retain focus and meet obstacles head-on. Complacency, he has warned, will not be accepted. Article continues below Editors’ Picks Man Utd ready to spend big on Sancho and Haaland in January Who is Marcus Thuram? Lilian’s son who is top of the Bundesliga with Borussia Monchengladbach Brazil, beware! Messi and Argentina out for revenge after Copa controversy Best player in MLS? Zlatan wasn’t even the best player in LA! That theme has been taken up by his players, with Van Dijk speaking after the PSG game about the hunger and desire which burns within the Reds squad.“If you are going to be on the pitch and you don’t believe it then you’d better stay home!” the Dutchman said. “You need to have belief, you need to have belief in everyone in your team and I have all the belief that’s there in this team.”I’m enjoying every single bit of it. If you look at the team we have, if you look at the whole squad, players who are not even in the squad who have so much potential and so much quality, it says a lot about our team.“Obviously in the end it is about hard work, making sure everyone is there for each other and I think it started for us in the pre-season. Hopefully we can keep on going. We’ve had a good start. There will be a day when we have downs as well, but then it is how we react – and I am not worried about anything.”Liverpool’s start to the season has underlined the progress made under Klopp during the past two seasons, but having finished fourth in each of the last two campaigns it would require significant improvement for them to end their long wait for a league title. They finished 25 points behind champions Manchester City last time, after all.Despite this, Van Dijk is happy to set the bar high in terms of their ambitions.Virgil van Dijk Liverpool v PSG“Everyone is excited, everyone is feeling good, everyone wanted to be part of this,” he said. “We know the season is very long, we have four competitions to play in, but you know – we want to win everything, that is basically our mindset. Otherwise, you’d better stop.“You need to have ambitions, and with the size of this club, with the people around here and the history of the club, we want to try and win everything. It’s going to be hard, it’s going to be something very difficult to do, but you know we are going to just try it. That is the only way forward.”We want to compete for every competition like we did last year, and we wanted to start well this time. We’ve had a good start to the season, nothing has been won yet, we need to show it every week, every three days now.“We have to be ready. But you know it’s a great time to be a Liverpool player, you want to play these games, you want to play these clubs we are going to face. You want to play at the highest level, you know, so enjoy it.”Van Dijk’s next task is to face his former club, Southampton. His transition following his £75 million ($98.5m) switch to Anfield in January has been seamless, the 27-year-old immediately establishing himself as a key player for his new club.Now, his aim is simple; trophies.Virgil van Dijk Liverpool v PSG“I have enjoyed every bit of it since I have arrived here,” he said. “And I hope we keep it going.”I want to win things, I want to create memories here and write history as well with all these boys. The season is just started, we have started well. We don’t need to take anything for granted, we have to keep working hard and stay humble.”We were not in the [Champions League] final last year for no reason, I think we should already get that respect for what we did. But obviously this season is new, everyone starts over, every game.“It started here [against PSG], but then the weekend again with Southampton, the [Carabao] cup against Chelsea, we need to keep going, keep improving, but also enjoy it – you know it’s the highest stage and you want to play these games as a player.”We can’t get ahead of ourselves, we have to stay both feet on the ground and keep working hard and be humble because look, Saturday a very tough game at Southampton, then midweek Chelsea, then Chelsea again, then Man City, then I have Germany and Belgium with Holland.”So, keep on going, every week is a new preparation, every three days now. It is the only way forward.” Subscribe to Goal’s Liverpool Correspondent Neil Jones’ weekly email bringing you the best Liverpool FC writing from around the weblast_img read more

We have to carry on and I’m sure they will do too.”last_img read more

first_imgFor Cygnus, which subsequently built a proprietary CMS, created an integrated database and began aggressively using responsive design, the idea was technology would not only enable new business, it would keep advertisers from going off the reservation. In addition to its capabilities, it became a calling card.”If all we are is a company that talks to an audience, then we’re at risk,” he said. “We need to be a partner that has technology on the bleeding edge that can best help our marketing partners.”That sentiment was echoed later during the lunch keynote from Glam Media founder Samir Arora, by the way, who made no bones about describing Glam as a technology company.But Johnson’s co-presenter put the focus back on content. “Unless you’re literally licensing software, please don’t call yourself a technology company,” said John Siefert, CEO of Virgo Publishing. “If you’re a media company, that’s not what you do. You’re creating content and then people are advertising around that content. For us, the software that runs our business is critical, we would not exist without it. But what we are is a media company that creates content.”Siefert warned that industry trends can be prematurely exaggerated into mission-critical strategies. “People become so focused on the sex appeal of the technology that they don’t focus on the content and how it works inside that technology.”He pointed to marketing automation technology as one area where many publishers are potentially devaluing their audience. “We’ve gotten to the point where we’re way too reliant on automating the process of lead-gen, instead of listening to the audience and engaging. We’ve over-teched it. We want to be thought drivers for our audience instead of just looking at them as leads.”The way out of that trap, suggests Siefert, is to put process before technology. “A lot of times technology defines the process,” he said. “What we try to do is define the process and find our build technology to support it.” The relationship between magazine publisher and technology is becoming ever more complex. For some, technology is so central it’s easy to begin to think that it’s what defines you. The issue calls up the classic argument: What’s more important, content or technology/delivery?At this week’s MediaNext conference in New York one session attempted to tackle that question, though the two presenters came at it from different perspectives.Blair Johnson, senior vice president, business development, at Cygnus Business Media, noted that the technology that social networks, and advertisers themselves, were creating were beginning to disintermediate the company. “The disruptions were allowing the brands to go directly to the consumer,” he said. “If we can’t get [technology] right for ourselves, how are we going to get it right for our advertisers?”last_img read more

Scott Dudelson/Getty Images A federal court on Wednesday dismissed a class-action lawsuit against rapper Ja Rule that alleged he falsely promoted the doomed Fyre Festival. The rapper was a founder of the 2017 event, which promised a luxury experience but turned out to be a disaster. The suit was filed by festival attendees against both Ja Rule (whose real name is Jeffrey Atkins) and Fyre Festival Chief Marketing Officer Grant Margolin. It alleges that the men made false claims on social media about the festival’s amenities, performances and food. But a judge for the US District Court for the Southern District of New York ruled that Ja Rule and Margolin didn’t know the event would be a disaster.”Atkins and Margolin were participants in organizing or promoting a large-scale event,” the judge wrote. “There is no assertion that the Festival when first conceived or introduced to the public was intended not to go forward or that defendants intended not to perform by organizing the advertised amenities and accommodation.”The court also ruled that the complaint didn’t specify when statements promoting the event were made or allege they were false at the time.   “The Court agrees that the subjective qualifiers of ‘FOMO-inducing’ and ‘Coachella x1000’ are too ‘exaggerated, blustering, and boasting’ for a reasonable consumer to rely on,” the judge ruled, discussing Ja Rule’s tweets, which reference “fear of missing out” and the annual Coachella music festival. Fyre Festival creator Billy McFarland was sentenced to six years in prison last year for wire fraud charges. Ja Rule has denied accountability for the festival. Earlier this year, Netflix and Hulu released competing documentaries about the debacle.  Turo $90 at Daily Steals via Google Express Share your voice Turo: Save $30 on any car rental Preview • iPhone XS is the new $1,000 iPhone X See It Read DJI Osmo Action preview $210 at Best Buy Read the AirPods review See It Sarah Tew/CNET $299 at Amazon Recently updated to include digital-photo-frame capabilities, the Lenovo Smart Clock brings Google Assistant goodness to your nightstand.

Culture,I’m shocked — shocked! — to learn that stores are turning Labor Day into an excuse to sell stuff. Wait — no, I’m not. As much as I respect the original intent of the holiday (which became official back in 1894), to most of us, it’s just a bonus day off — one that’s blissfully tacked onto a weekend. So, yeah, stores; go ahead, run your sales. I’m listening. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Labor Day doesn’t bring out bargains to compete with the likes of Black Friday (which will be here before you know it), but there are definitely some sales worth your time.For example:We’ve rounded up the best Labor Day mattress deals.We’ve also gathered the best Labor Day laptop deals at Best Buy.The 2019 Vizio P Series Quantum is back under $999.Be sure to check out Amazon’s roughly three dozen Labor Day deals on TVs and audio.

Keep in mind, of course, that products may sell out at any time, even if the sale itself is still running. Note that CNET may get a share of revenue from the sale of the products featured on this page. The problem with most entry-level laptops: They come with mechanical hard drives. That makes for a mighty slow Windows experience. This Lenovo model features a 128GB solid-state drive, so it should be pretty quick to boot and load software, even with its basic processor. Plus, it has a DVD-burner!

first_imgBloomberg founder Micheal BloombergReutersFormer New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg rejoined the Democratic Party on Wednesday, going back to his political roots weeks before the November 6 congressional elections and amid speculation that he might run for the White House in 2020.Bloomberg, the billionaire founder, and chief executive of global media company Bloomberg LP, said in a post on social media he was re-registering as a Democrat, citing a potential constitutional crisis under Republican President Donald Trump, a fellow New York businessman.”At key points in U.S. history, one of the two parties has served as a bulwark against those who threaten our Constitution. Two years ago at the Democratic Convention, I warned of those threats,” Bloomberg wrote in a post on Instagram.”Today, I have re-registered as a Democrat – I had been a member for most of my life – because we need Democrats to provide the checks and balance our nation so badly needs.”Bloomberg, 76, was a longtime Democrat who became a Republican before running for mayor of the largest U.S. city in 2001. He left the Republican Party to become an independent in 2007 and served three terms as New York’s mayor, stepping down in 2013.He has considered running for president in the past as an independent but never did. The Guardian newspaper reported in August that he was considering running in 2020 as a Democrat.Representatives for Bloomberg could not be immediately reached for comment on Wednesday.A frequent critic of Trump, Bloomberg has donated $80 million to help Democrats gain control of the House of Representatives and $20 million to help Democrats running for U.S. Senate, which Republicans now narrowly control 51 to 49.Democrats are aiming to pick up 23 seats in the House to win a majority in the lower chamber, something political analysts have said is more likely than gaining an edge in the Senate.Taking control of either chamber would give Democrats leverage to oversee Trump and his administration, including the ability to hold hearings and subpoena officials.Bloomberg has used his fortune, which Forbes magazine has pegged at $51.8 billion, to push a number of liberal causes including efforts to tackle global warming and gun deaths.last_img read more

first_imgMinniPolice took Aysha Siddika Minni to the police superintendent’s office on Tuesday morning for interrogation over the murder of her husband Rifat Sharif in broad daylight, reports UNB.A team of police went to Minni’s residence near Barguna Police Lines around 9:45am and took her to the SP’s office, said witnesses.However, SP Maruf Hossain said police brought Minni to his office to take her deposition as a witness in the murder case.Md Humayun Kabir, inspector of Sadar police station and the investigation officer of the case, and the SP were taking her deposition under section 161 of the Code of Criminal Procedure for the sake of investigation, he said.Police also sought Minni’s cooperation to identify the murder suspects, according to the SP office.The new development came after Rifat’s father Dulal Sharif and locals demanded Minni’s arrest alleging that she had part to the gruesome murder of her husband.At a press conference at Barguna Press Club on Saturday night, Dulal Sharif demanded the arrest of his daughter-in-law to investigate whether she had colluded with the killers.He had alleged that Minni concealed the matter that she was previously married to Sabbir Ahmed alias Nayan Bond, the prime accused of the Rifat murder case who was killed in an alleged gunfight with police on 2 July, and she used to visit Nayan’s house frequently.Besides, instead of trying to protect Rifat on the day, she was busy with herself and even ‘helped the killers’, according to Dulal.He raised a 10-point allegation against Minni who has been made the first witness in the case.Besides, locals formed a human chain on the Barguna Press Club premises on Sunday morning to press for the same demand.Many people, including Rifat’s father Dulal Sharif, took part in the human-chain programme.Soon after the human chain, Minni arranged a press conference at her father’s house where she claimed that propaganda was being spread against her to protect the murderers. “My father-in-law (Dulal Sharif) is sick and he has no balance.”She alleged that a vested group has been out to implicate her in the case through misguiding her father-in-law so that the accused get released.About the claim that she had previously married to Nayan Bond, Minni refuted it, saying, “Why hadn’t Nayan stood in my way when I married Rifat if I had earlier married him?”Police have so far arrested 13 people in connection with the Rifat murder. Seven of them have confessed to their involvement in the murder.A video clip of the murder captured in a surveillance camera went viral on social media. It showed criminals hacking Rifat Sharif brutally in broad daylight in front of Barguna Govt College while his wife Minni was trying to save him.Rifat was sent to Sher-e-Bangla Medical College Hospital in Barishal where he died.Dulal Sharif, the father of Rifat, filed a case against 12 people.last_img read more

first_imgDocuments related to a 2012 lawsuit against Facebook in which children, sometimes unwittingly, spent their parents’ money on games via the social site will be unsealed, according to a Monday ruling from the United States District Court.The court gave Facebook ten days to file unredacted documents in accordance with the ruling.The 2012 lawsuit dealt with minors spending their parents’ money in games without permission and sometimes without even being aware that they were spending actual currency in Facebook games. Some of the documents reveal that Facebook employees were even aware that children were spending large amounts of money without parental awareness, according to Reveal, the news agency of The Center for Investigative Reporting (CIR).“A glimpse into the soon-to-be-released records shows Facebook’s own employees worried they were bamboozling children who racked up hundreds, and sometimes even thousands, of dollars in game charges,” a post from Reveal stated. “And the company failed to provide an effective way for unsuspecting parents to dispute the massive charges, according to internal Facebook records.” In another glimpse of one of the to-be unsealed documents from the case, a Facebook employee refers to a minor spending money in the game as a “whale.” The term “whale” is used in the industry to refer to big spenders in games, often in mobile or casual games.The following excerpt is allegedly from one of the unsealed documents as spotted by Reveal:Gillian: Would you refund this whale ticket? User is disputing ALL charges…Michael: What’s the users total lifetime spend?Gillian: It’s $6,545 – but card was just added on Sept. 2. They are disputing all of it I believe. That user looks underage as well. Well, maybe not under 13.Michael: Is the user writing in a parent, or is this user a 13ish year oldGillian: It’s a 13ish yr old. says its 15. looks a bit younger. she* not its. Lol.Michael: … I wouldn’t refundGillian: Oh that’s fine. cool. agreed. just double checkingAs of 2012, “Facebook’s refund policies for individuals between 13 and 17 were the same as its policies for adults, but … policies for minors under 13 were different,” according to the court document. This could explain why the employees were speculating over the user’s age.Regardless, that Facebook employees would refer to a minor as a “whale” implies intention behind purchases, which brings it back to the issue of whether a parent should be held responsible when a child, even unknowingly, makes massive purchases with their credit card.The eight documents, which Facebook requested remain sealed, fall into the categories of “refund policies… fraud detection practices… and …  sensitive business and financial information.”The court sided with Facebook for several exhibits, largely under grounds that information within was sensitive business information that would put the company at a competitive disadvantage (that’s where the “denied in part” ruling comes from).The court disagreed with some key information, such as Facebook’s request to seal a document which contains ” dollar values related to transactions, refunds, and chargebacks involving minors between 2008 and 2014″ on the grounds that this information is not going to harm Facebook’s business interests and is “of great public interest.”View this document on Scribd For example, one internal memo stated that “In nearly all cases the parents knew their child was playing ‘Angry Birds’, but didn’t think the child would be allowed to buy anything without their password or authorization first,” according to Reveal.The 2012 case came after plaintiff Glynnis Bohannon contended that her child asked to spend $20 on Facebook Credits, an in-game currency, to use on “Ninja Saga.” Bohannon agreed and used her credit card, but her child was able to continue spending money without her permission beyond the $20, ultimately reaching “several hundred dollars,” according to the court document.Bohannon attempted to get a refund from Facebook, but was denied until she filed against Facebook.Another plaintiff, Steven Wright, had a similar experience with his son and had over $1,000 of disputed charges. In the case of Wright, his son had not asked for initial permission, and he was granted only a partial refund of $59.90 with an additional $999.30 in charges remaining unrefunded, though a Facebook representative said it had “refunded the charges to [Mr. Wright’s] funding instrument,” according to the court document.Complaints in the lawsuit Bohannon v. Facebook contended that “under its policies, Facebook ‘routinely refuses requests by children and their parents and legal guardians to provide refunds for transactions that are subject to disaffirmance under California law.’”Ultimately, the case was settled, and the plaintiffs received refunds. Following the conclusion of the lawsuit, the CIR requested documents related to the Bohannon v. Facebook case be released in full, a request that was ultimately “granted in part and denied in part.”In response to Variety‘s request for comment, a Facebook spokesperson offered the following statement:“We were contacted by the Center for Investigative Reporting last year, and we voluntarily unsealed documents related to a 2012 case about our refund policies for in-app purchases that parents believe were made in error by their minor children. We intend to release additional documents as instructed by the court. Facebook works with parents and experts to offer tools for families navigating Facebook and the web. As part of that work, we routinely examine our own practices, and in 2016 agreed to update our terms and provide dedicated resources for refund requests related to purchased made by minors on Facebook.“ Popular on Variety ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.
