Brace yourself: 49ers McKinnon practicing, but Street IR bound

first_imgSANTA CLARA — Much of this 49ers season will revolve around comebacks from anterior cruciate ligament surgeries. Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo’s is obviously the most important. Tuesday brought news of two other ACL patients.First, the good news: running back Jerick McKinnon returned to practice, three weeks since his last cameo, and this time he donned a brace on his right knee that he initially declined to wear for mentality sake.Now, the bad news: defensive end Kentavius Street is likely …last_img read more

South Africans ‘serious about democracy’

first_img24 April 2009South Africans are serious about democracy, international observer Oranto Atombo said after witnessing the massive, peaceful voter turnout in the country’s 2009 general election.Speaking to BuaNews on Thursday from the Independent Electoral Commission’s (IEC’s) results centre in Pretoria, were the votes from Wednesday’s election were being counted, Atombo said South Africa had once more proved that it could pull off a successful election.In Jacob Zuma’s hometown in Kwanxamalala, KwaZulu-Natal, 67-year-old Songelwayo Nene makes his mark in South Africa’s fourth democratic elections. Click arrow to play video“An election of this magnitude can hardly be 100 percent free of anything,” Atombo said of the relatively few logistical glitches encountered. “Even in advanced democracies.”According to the IEC, 77.31 percent of South Africa’s 23.18-million registered voters cast their ballots in Wednesday’s poll.The huge turnout caused long queues and a shortage of voting material at some voting stations, which saw presiding officers scrambling to supply voting material where it was needed. All stations closed at 9pm, although voters who were already in the queue at that time were allowed to vote.Atombo said voters’ determination to stand in long queues to make their mark demonstrated “how serious South Africans are about their hard-earned democracy”.Atombo is one of 333 international observers currently in South Africa to ensure that the country’s elections are free and fair.Meanwhile, an observer mission from Business Unity South Africa (Busa) has congratulated the country on conducting a free and fair election, saying this was a positive factor for investor and business confidence.“Notwithstanding the shortages of ballot papers and ballot boxes, which caused delays in some voting stations, the cooperation between party agents and IEC officials allowed for speedy resolutions of those challenges,” Busa said in a statement on Thursday.Source: BuaNewslast_img read more

NFC Business Models, Challenges and Adoption Examined

first_imgTags:#mobile#Trends Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … NFC, or near field communication, is an emerging technology that enables the exchange of data between devices in close proximity to each other, typically mobile phones. Much of the interest in the technology at present is in its potential to serve as the basis for a mobile payments system, such as the one Google is currently building or Isis, the U.S. operator-led mobile payments initiative.However, mobile payment systems are just one of the many markets where NFC can succeed. According to a new research report by SJB Research analyst Sarah Clark, NFC’s true potential lies with its ability to bridge the gap between the real world and the online world.NFC: Linking Real and Online Worlds“Most NFC projects to date have been based around the use of a mobile phone or other device equipped with NFC technology to replace an existing service,” says Clark. But NFC-enabled devices can do far more, she explains. They can operate in three different modes: as card emulators, where they act as replacements for information stored on a plastic card; in peer-to-peer mode, where they exchange data with other devices; and in card/tag reading and writing mode, where they read or change information stored in an RFID tag or contactless card.When combined with a communications network, NFC devices can link actions in the real world to consumer-facing or back office systems. And they can be used to provide instant feedback to users based on the actions a user makes.NFC Business ModelsIn the new, detailed report, Clark examines developing a business model for NFC infrastructure, secure element issuers, the use of NFC in payments, how to gain buy-in from consumers and service providers and launch strategies for NFC services.Clark says that the first and most important task in creating a business model for the provision of NFC services is to define the kind of infrastructure that will be used, as its design and competitive stance will have a fundamental impact on how willing service providers will be to adopt NFC. The more open the infrastructure, the more willing businesses will be to adopt the technology.It’s also not required that providers own the secure element used to store consumers’ NFC applications and sensitive data. Solutions from mobile operators, handset manufacturers and others exist now that would enable B2B NFC services, she says.NFC in Mobile Payments As for mobile payments specifically, Clark identifies some challenges in this area. A solution that allows multiple card issuers and payments processors the ability to share space on an NFC handset has yet to be found, which is one of the major reasons why commercial NFC has taken so long to arrive.In addition, consumers will expect to make payments using their existing full range of cards, including debit and credit cards, using NFC. This is why participation of banks is key to NFC’s success.Meanwhile, card issuers are not threatened by NFC technology, but payment processors are, as it calls for a radical redesign on their part. However, this also creates an opportunity for smaller and more innovative banks without a payments processing arm to jump into this space and be among the first to offer on-handset NFC payments to consumers, says Clark.Merchants, too, will need to get on board with NFC so they can process transactions at point-of-sale and persuading them to do so has not been easy.Finally, getting consumers to begin adopting NFC can be a challenge as well. In urban areas, this can be accomplished by partnering with a single local transit merchant – that has the same impact on adoption as bringing hundreds of merchants on board, Clark says.Other Applications May Arrive Before PaymentsOutside of mobile payments, there is the potential for non-payments applications to arrive first, something which can be aided by providers targeting specific geographic areas and offering compelling services that require the use of NFC on a regular basis – ideally, daily. Targeting a particular type of customer or a given demographic group can help, too. Business travelers and household budget holders are especially attractive demographics.There is much more detail in the full 170-page report available here, including detailed analysis NFC-related business models, NFC as used in mobile payments systems, challenges in both merchant and consumer adoption, launch strategies and more. Sarah Clark is also the editor of a well-known website NFC World, which tracks developments in this technology niche.

What’s Bugging Online Storage Users? It’s Not Always What You Think

first_imgRelated Posts Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting While people who use Dropbox and Box worry about security, users of services like Google Drive and Apple’s iCloud seem  more concerned with implementation issues. Is that a sign of dangerous complacency, or is it only natural that the level of of security concerns vary between different online storage services?Natural or not, that variation is clearly in place, according to a recent report from a tech-support community site FixYa. Note that while FixYa lets post questions to the community at large in the hope of getting a helpful answer, it differs from typical tech sites by covering a much wider set of consumer products and services – from washing machines to strollers.Taking a look at its own question and answer database, the folks at FixYa put together a synopsis of the issues that are the most relevant to public cloud services. The results were intriguing, particularly because of where the most expected cloud-storage bugaboo – security – was ranked (or not ranked) among the services outlined.Security Yes? Security No?Security topped the list of most commonly asked questions about Dropbox, coming in at 40% of issues raised. Storage limits came in at number two, with file syncing was the number three concern on the list.Security was not quite as big an issue for Box users, tied for first place with upload issues, each accounting for 25% of issues reported. Backup file questions ranked third.Perhaps most striking, though, was the fast that for iCloud and Google Drive users, security wasn’t a ranked issue at all. The problems listed all deal with application-specific issues.For Google Drive help-seekers, missing folders was the top-reported problem, at 30% of questions. Syncing files and Google Doc auto-conversion were the second- and third-ranked questions, respectively.Syncing information figured more prominently for users of Apple’s iCloud, with the number two and three ranked questions centering around syncing with non-Apple devices and syncing between devices in general. The biggest reported question was very application-specific: 35% of users had questions about Apple’s Mountain Lion OS X operating system update and its affect on iCloud.Who Cares About Security In The Cloud?This disparity is notable because it seems to run counter to the popular perception that all such public online cloud services carry fears about security. It may very well be that iCloud and Google Drive consumers are just as worried about security, but they’re just not expressing it on community support sites. But it seems odd that security isn’t part of the conversation about these services.Actually, it may not be that odd at all – a very public hack of Dropbox this summer has led corporations like IBM to block Dropbox, iCloud and similar online storage services. Consumer identification of security problems may be associated with the Dropbox brand and the similarly named Box service.There seems to be a public perception that the Google and Apple services are secure and don’t required much attention about security. (Though companies like IBM don’t share that opinion.)Those services may very well be relatively secure, but almost any individual account can be broken into unless strong security guidelines are followed. An online storage service can be as secure as Fort Knox, but if someone has the right key, the gold in your account is up for grabs.Image courtesy of Shutterstock.

(Photo by Kevin C. Cox/Getty Images)The SEC is an absolute grind. The West has long been considered the toughest division in college football, and the East may be back on the up-swing with teams like Florida and Tennessee showing signs of life recently. Add in the league’s penchant for scheduling big-time non-conference opponents early, and the vast majority of these teams refuse to take it easy.A few months ago, we ranked the easiest and most difficult schedules in all of college football. Only one SEC team made our ‘easy’ list, while a third of the most difficult list was made up by SEC programs. The preseason edition of ESPN’s Football Power Index strength of schedule rankings is incredibly bullish on the entire SEC, with eight of the conference’s teams in the top 20.Which team has the hardest schedule of them all, and who is taking it (relatively) easy?

Baseball Ohio State limps to 73 loss in Big Ten opener against

Ohio State junior starting pitcher Connor Curlis delivers a pitch Friday night against Nebraska in Bill Davis Stadium. Credit: Mac Connor | Ohio State AthleticsThe Ohio State baseball team (17-8, 0-1 Big Ten) got off to a hot start, scoring three times against Nebraska starter Luis Alvarado in the first two innings.But the Cornhusker ace blanked the Buckeyes over the next 6.1 innings and Nebraska (14-12, 2-2 Big Ten) finished off a 7-3 win in the Buckeyes’ conference opener Friday night.“We tried to control [Alvarado]’s rhythm a little bit, but he was pounding the strike zone,” head coach Greg Beals said. “Give his competitive spirit credit, because he got popped in the mouth early in the game and stayed in there and kept competing.”With no outs and a runner on first in the fifth inning, Husker junior shortstop Angelo Altavilla laid a sacrifice bunt attempt down the third base line. Third baseman Conner Pohl threw the ball away, allowing Nebraska sophomore center fielder Joe Acker to score on the throwing error. Altavilla later crossed home plate on a single by senior first baseman Scott Schreiber to give Nebraska the 5-3 lead.In the bottom of the ninth inning, a pinch-hit single, a fielder’s choice and a walk loaded the bases with two outs for Ohio State junior second baseman Brady Cherry. Nebraska closer Jake Hohensee shut down the opportunity and polished off his sixth save of the season with his third strikeout.Junior Connor Curlis started on the mound for the Buckeyes and was nearly unhittable through three innings, sitting down nine of 10 batters with four strikeouts. But the game began to unravel in the fourth inning.Schreiber smacked his team-leading seventh home run of the season, a no-doubter over the left field fence. Senior second baseman Zac Repinski kept things going with a one-out double to put two runners in scoring position. Both runners scored on a ground ball and a single to even the game at three.Curlis finished with eight strikeouts, surrendering three earned runs in 6.2 innings of work. Ohio State extended its early lead when redshirt junior designated hitter Nate Romans deposited the 1-0 pitch directly above the 400-foot sign in center field during the bottom of the second inning that put the Buckeyes ahead 3-0.“He came at me with the changeup first pitch and he didn’t hit with it, so I was sitting fastball and he left it up,” Romans said. “It’s kind of funny too, because we’ve got these new bat regulations and stuff and the wind was blowing in.”Nebraska scored two insurance runs in the eighth inning, closing the door on a potential Buckeye comeback. read more
