first_img “At Selhurst Park you can make it difficult and you can make it more of a competitive match. When you go away, it can be, in my experience, very, very difficult. “The pressure is off us; I don’t think anybody expects us to go to Chelsea and win the game. “The important thing is the players go there and do their best, they enjoy the game and they enjoy the challenge.” Full-back Dean Moxey, one of three ever-presents for the Eagles this season, is doubtful for the Chelsea clash with a hamstring injury, but winger Yannick Bolasie is available following suspension. A number of long-term injured are nearing returns as Pulis assesses his squad prior to the opening of the winter transfer window. Before engaging in transfer dealings, Pulis is focused on matches with Chelsea, Newcastle, Aston Villa, Manchester City and Norwich on New Year’s Day. “It’s a tough run,” Pulis said. “We know it’s a tough run and we’ll find out more about the group and about the squad. Then that’s the best time to assess where we’re going to go. “Everybody understands and recognises it’s going to be a real tough season and a tough call (to survive). “The most important thing is we deal with the Christmas programme the best we can and it’s then sitting down with Steve and the rest of directors and see what we can do.” Pulis likes the festive schedule, but wishes the fixtures involved more local matches. He added: “I’m an advocate for games over Christmas. I’m a traditionalist. “I’d love to see local derbies. It’s absolutely ridiculous that we’re asking Crystal Palace supporters to pay to go up to Birmingham and then come back down and pay to go up to Manchester. “You can’t tell me they don’t arrange certain fixtures at certain times of year to suit television companies.” “But the season is not about three or four games – it’s about the 23 that are left for us. “Our season will be determined by our home form, from now until the end of the season. “We’ve just got to make sure Selhurst Park is rocking like it has been the couple of times I’ve been manager there and that the players give everything they’ve got.” Pulis believes Palace can put the leading clubs under pressure at home, but it is more of a challenge away. “On any given day, if Chelsea play to their maximum, they’re a little bit ahead of us,” added Pulis, whose former club Stoke beat Chelsea at the Britannia Stadium last weekend. “The one thing everybody’s really surprised about is that they haven’t scored as many goals as maybe they should have. “But they’ve played some fantastic football and they’ve got some top, top players. “I think they’re in a fantastic position and they’re still fighting on four fronts. Manager Tony Pulis believes it is Crystal Palace’s performances at home which will determine their Barclays Premier League fate and not games such as Saturday’s trip to title challengers Chelsea. Press Association The Eagles have won two of their three matches since Pulis’ appointment, but the Stamford Bridge contest is the sternest test so far. “I’ve come in, the players have responded and it’s been a great few results and we’re really, really pleased,” Pulis said. last_img read more

But as with any product, times change and require adaptation and upgrades to stay current.Your old freedoms were delivered in conventional ways. Now you can get just the freedom you need, when you need it. It’s freedom as a service. It’s Citizenship 2.0. Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Tags:#Civil Liberties#Government#nsa#Prism#satire#spying A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting New And Improved!In recent years, this administration has learned a lot from Silicon Valley—and we’re not just talking about the communications we’ve been intercepting for years from some of the biggest Internet companies. We’ve been very interested in how innovative business models can be applied to government.In particular, the freemium style of product has proven very compelling, where most users get a basic service for free and others pay to get an enhanced version.Of course, as taxpayers, you’re already paying the government to provide services. But our expert governance innovators—”governovators,” we call them—have figured out a way to apply this model to the rights you enjoy as a citizen.Get excited, people—freedom is no longer free. It’s freemium!Big Government, Big Data, Big Changes!You may ask, what’s enabling this move? You may have read something about PRISM.PRISM doesn’t exist, of course. But let’s say we had a secret program to monitor all Internet communications with the tacit cooperation or nonresistance of major tech companies. For argument’s sake. If something like that existed, that would merely be a back-end foundation for the front-end interface improvements to your government that really matter. That’s Citizenship 2.0.Here’s what you’re going to get:Unlimited storage for all your communications. You won’t have access to them—but we will. And that’s what matters. If you or your parents come from a foreign country, or you just have a funny-sounding name, or you ever Googled the name of a political organization, you also get extra backups—for free!In-app purchases. Benjamin Franklin once said, “Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.” First of all, that was, like, soooo three centuries ago. Second, what’s with the crazy capitalization? Anyway, we have all this new technology that’s a complete game-changer. With Citizenship 2.0, you don’t have to surrender your essential liberty up front. You can trade little bits of it as you go, for all the temporary safety you want!Access to your leaders. We’re all about transparency—at least when it comes to what you’re doing online. Thanks to Citizenship 2.0, what you do online might end up in a report that the president himself reads! Isn’t that cool? Note: If you prefer the old version of citizenship, you can opt out of these changes and stick to the original version guaranteed by the Bill of Rights by marching, protesting, or writing your Congressman. But let’s get real—no one’s going to bother to do that.*We’re kidding. We hope. owen thomas Related Posts 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Marketlast_img read more

first_imgCBI headquarters in Delhi.Widening the spectrum of its investigation in the Commonwealth Games (CWG) scam, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has brought under scanner 35 consultants who were hired by the organising committee (OC) for various services, but they hardly did any work. The CBI documents in possession of Headlines Today reveal these high profile names, including that of former junior foreign minister Shashi Tharoor, who charged hefty fees to do nothing. In all, the OC spent a whopping Rs 50.8 lakh per month on these white elephants with fancy designations. The list is topped by Tharoor who was paid Rs 13.5 lakh ($30,000). Others include catering consultant Ajay Grover who was paid Rs 2 lakh, hospitality advisor Vikram Kaul and ticketing advisor Mohan Phadke who were paid Rs 1.4 lakh each and communication consultant Rajeev Desai was paid Rs 1 lakh. Headlines Today was the first to report how Tharoor was hired to influence international communities to ensure successful staging of the CWG. As the OC consultant (community engagement), his job involved filing monthly reports, which he never did. As per the CBI report, his total working days were 12. Tharoor, however, issued a statement denying the allegations. “My association with the CWG as a consultant relates to a different phase of my life, when I was a private citizen with No relationship to the government, an independent consultant working out of New York, quite legally supporting the CWG for which I was officially, formally and legally paid,” Tharoor said. “The consultancy services were rendered between September 2008 and January 2009. In other words the services relate to a period well before I entered public life. The consultancy fee charged was a token sum, and the total sum paid ($30,000 less taxes) was far below the fee that I used to command even just to make a single speech,” he added. The CBI is still trying to establish the exact amount involved in the scam, as it was yet to ascertain the amount spent on these consultants as their perks. The agency estimates that the amount could run into crores of rupees. The CBI is now likely to question these people. Sources said the agency was even looking at the possibility of lodging a fresh FIR in the case.advertisementlast_img read more

first_imgKim Reynolds is the fifth governor in the country to “opt in” so Iowa agencies may buy A-T-and-T contracts for high-speed cellular service that provides “first responders” with priority access during times of crisis. Reynolds says A-T-and-T’s “FirstNet” service also will help agencies communicate across state lines.Audio Playerhttp://kscj.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/firstnet1.mp300:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.About five years ago, federal officials awarded A-T-and-T nine BILLION dollars to start creating a NATIONAL network that would divert private traffic from mobile networks and give public safety agencies like police and fire departments nearly all the bandwidth in a critical emergency. Governors have until the end of the year to start creating that kind of emergency network on their own — or do as Reynolds has and opt for the one A-T-and-T is developing.David Ness, a captain in the Des Moines Police Department, says the 9-11 Commission called for first responders to get “first access” to cellular towers and data networks in times of crisis.Audio Playerhttp://kscj.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/firstnet2.mp300:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.The governor’s “opt in” agreement, however, does NOT require ANY Iowa agency to break current contracts and sign up for A-T-and-T cellular and data service. Signing up for A-T-and-T’s “FirstNet” service is voluntary. A-T-and-T officials say their company has spent nearly 150-million dollars over the past three years to increase the speed of its network in Iowa and more money will be invested here in the future. According to the state government’s “Connect Iowa” program, only a third of the territory in Iowa has access to advanced, high-speed broadband.last_img read more
