Taylor leads Thunder to victory

first_imgSYDNEY, Australia, (CMC):A season-best knock from Stafanie Taylor anchored Sydney Thunder to a comfortable, eight-wicket victory over struggling Melbourne Renegades in the Women’s Big Bash League yesterday.The West Indies Women’s captain struck four fours and two sixes in 48 not out from 37 balls, making her a shoo-in for the Player of the Match award, as the Thunder successfully chased a modest target of 94 in the 22nd match of the tournament at the Blacktown Sportspark.Taylor shared an unbroken, third-wicket stand with Australia Women’s international Alex Blackwell to give the Thunder their third win in the tournament with 50 balls remaining.The result also meant that the Thunder now have seven points from their six matches, placing them third in the current standings.Taylor, also a decent part-time off-spinner, was not called upon to bring her tweakers, as the Renegades, sent in to bat, were restricted to 93 for six in their allocation of 20 overs.In another match at Allan Border Field, a five-run victory for hosts Brisbane Heatover the tournament-leading Melbourne Stars was overshadowed by a heavy, head-first collision between West Indies Women’s star all-rounder Deandra Dottin and her teammate Laura Harris.Dottin was rushed to the hospital with a suspected concussion and was later released, but Harris was able to walk away and remained at the venue. (See full report under Full Sports).Earlier, Dottin was dismissed for two, as the Heat posted 129 for five from their 20 overs, after they chose to bat and she conceded 22 from two overs in the Stars’ chase which fell just short.The other match on the card between home team Adelaide Strikers and Hobart Hurricanes, whose squad includes teenaged West Indies opener Hayley Matthews, was abandoned without a ball being bowled at the Gliderol Stadium, due to rain.last_img read more

Super Bowl ads heavy on humor, surprises and… robots

first_imgThis undated image provided by Anheuser-Busch shows a scene from the company’s Bud Light 2019 Super Bowl NFL football spot. (Anheuser-Busch via AP)NEW YORK — This year’s Super Bowl ads went heavy on the humor — and surprises.Take, for instance, Jason Bateman’s Hyundai ad about an elevator with unpleasantness on every floor. A surprise “Game of Thrones” tie-in with Bud Light both confused and delighted viewers. And robots seemed to be everywhere as advertisers picked up on Americans’ unease over our growing dependence on artificial intelligence.ADVERTISEMENT Tom Brady most dominant player in AFC championship history “Everyone here loves ‘Game of Thrones,’” he said. “The whole room was screaming.”Bud’s wasn’t the only misdirection of the night. A Hulu ad for the new season of “The Handmaid’s Tale” started out as a spoof of Ronald Reagan’s 1984 campaign ad “Morning in America.” And a promo for CBS’ new “Twilight Zone” made it seem like the game was starting up again in Atlanta before abruptly cutting to an empty stadium with host Jordan Peele at the center.Ads poking fun at robots appeared everywhere. TurboTax had a “Robochild” and Michelob Ultra showcased an uber-athletic robot sad that he can’t partake in a beer. SimpliSafe and Sprint’s ads also featured robots. Meanwhile, Pringles and Amazon itself made fun of smart assistants.Most of the ads played up robots for laughs and weren’t realistic.“We have a real anxiety about AI and our future overlords, and a lot of advertisers are trying to address it,” said Mark DiMassimo, head of ad agency DiMassimo Goldstein.ADVERTISEMENT Gretchen Barretto’s daughter Dominique graduates magna cum laude from California college MOST READ View comments Phivolcs: Slim probability of Taal Volcano caldera eruption Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next This year’s ads are “more mild than wild,” said Kelly O’Keefe, a professor at Virginia Commonwealth University’s Brandcenter. “While the focus of the night is on entertainment rather than controversy, there is very little that we’re going to talking about at the water cooler tomorrow.”The New England Patriots reigned supreme over the L.A. Rams on the field in Atlanta, but during ad breaks, advertisers battled each other for buzz. Bud Light was one of the more talked about advertisers during the game.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGolden State Warriors sign Lee to multiyear contract, bring back ChrissSPORTSCoronation night?SPORTSThirdy Ravena gets‍‍‍ offers from Asia, Australian ball clubsIts surprise ad , for instance, garnered some raves. The Bud Light spot started off focused on its “Bud Knight” mascot in a jousting tournament. But he ends up facing an evil character from the TV show who attacks him while a dragon fills the sky and apparently incinerates the scene — abruptly turning the ad into a promo for the upcoming final season of the series.Super Bowl ad fan Tom Olivieri, 42, watching the game at a party at his sister’s house in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, said the ad was the “best so far.” Philippine Army to acquire MANPADS, self-propelled howitzers Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. center_img In fight vs corruption, Duterte now points to Ayala, MVP companies as ‘big fish’ Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award Jared Goff, Rams’ electric offense shorts out in Super Bowl defeat Ginebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup title Will you be the first P16 Billion Powerball jackpot winner from the Philippines? Amazon’s ad was the best of the bunch, he said. It showed Harrison Ford, Forest Whitaker and other celebrities testing out rejected Amazon products that feature its Alexa digital assistant, such as a talking electric toothbrush and a dog collar that responds to dogs, not humans.“Amazon stands out for having gotten tech-related advertising right,” he said. Their ad was “pop-culture first, self-deprecating, and it plays against the robot-like personality of Alexa.”Women-centric ads were also big. After Hulu’s “Handmaid’s Tale” spot, Serena Williams appeared as spokeswoman for Bumble, which bills itself as a feminist dating app where women make the first move. The tennis icon urges women not to wait to be given power, saying, “we already have it.”Supermodel Karlie Kloss played up her identity as a businesswoman in an ad for web-hosting service Wix.com . She wore an understated green T-shirt, a far cry from skimpily clad super models in Super Bowl ads of yore.Ads in general avoided politics, but a few tugged at the heartstrings.A Microsoft ad showed a disabled child talking excitedly about the fun he has using Microsoft’s adaptive Xbox controller designed for players with mobility limitations. The Washington Post aired an ad voiced by Tom Hanks highlighting the often dangerous work journalists do.Google’s pair of ads focused on its good deeds. One focused on its ability to help veterans search for jobs. Another emphasized the human side of its translation service. “Words can hurt and sometimes divide,” the voiceover said. But according to the ad, every day the most translated words are “How are you,” ″Thank you,” and “I love you.”That ad was a favorite at Robert Lerner’s gathering in Los Altos, California. He hosted about 20 people on game day.“People liked the fact it was international and shows Google is doing the good stuff — we live in Google country,” he said. “It was heartwarming and good to see.” LATEST STORIES Japeth Aguilar wins 1st PBA Finals MVP award for Ginebra Nadine Lustre’s phone stolen in Brazillast_img read more

Mayor drives ahead with parking meter plan despite calls for it to be scrapped

first_imgThe Mayor and her team will be ignoring an avalanche of concerns regarding the controversial parking meter project, which many believe to be a shady deal aimed at exploiting the public.The Mayor, Patricia Chase-Green, Town Clerk Royston King and a team are currently in Mexico City to wrap-up the final rollout schedule of the parking meter project even as criticisms continue to pour in from individual commentators, transparency advocates, the parliamentary opposition and the Deputy Mayor himself, Sherod Duncan concerning the project.Concerns include the total lack of transparency surrounding the project, the legitimacy of the company contracted, the price proposed to be charged, the fact that no prior public consultations were held with stakeholders, and the overall secrecy and constant inconsistencies that surround the undertaking.But those concerns were blatantly disregarded when Town Clerk King made it clear the project is still on stream.“While it is unfortunate that certain individuals have taken advantage of the absence of the Mayor to advance negative, divisive and completely untrue narratives, the Mayor and the travelling delegation plan to hold a press conference upon their return to provide updates on this very important and productive trip,” King said in a statement released from Mexico.King maintained that this project will become the pioneering centre of wider modernisation and improvements coming to the City that will accelerate it towards parity with the other great capital cities across the world.On the other hand, many stakeholders believe this secretive parking meter project which was inked with the controversial National Parking Systems/Smart City Solutions should be immediately scrapped.Former 1st Vice President of Transparency Institute of Guyana Inc (TIGI) and Chartered Accountant Christopher Ram said that, “it’s very troubling indeed” for a project of such magnitude, information is hardly available. He lambasted M&CC for failing to follow proper public procurement procedures for the multimillion-dollar parking meter initiative.Additionally, commentator and transparency advocate Ramon Gaskin described the entire controversy as “very, very fishy”.“The only information that is available is what’s in the press… nobody has seen any contract of anything. The whole thing as my friends said has the smell of unrefrigerated fish. The whole thing sounds very funny, not transparent, it didn’t go to tender, it’s a big problem,” he remarked.On Sunday last, former Speaker of the National Assembly and commentator Ralph Ramkarran said the undertaking seems to be nothing but a “get-rich-quick scheme”, given the capricious and tenuous strategies and justifications provided for some aspects of the project.Cultural Policy Advisor to the Education Minister, Ruel Johnson also criticised the manner in which the project is being executed.Johnson also called on the public to use this opportunity to hold the government accountable and demand better governance.The short-lived excitement of the parking meter project was eclipsed by controversy and accusations of corruption after some city councillors, including the Deputy Mayor refused to endorse the project on the grounds that the council was not provided with enough information on the project and its contractor, including the contract with the council inked with National Parking Systems/Smart City Solutions to install and operate the meters.There are also questions about the companies’ track record in parking meter installation.last_img read more

Ferguson’s promoters at Bellator Fighting Championships confirmed his death on Monday. “We are all shocked and saddened by the devastating and untimely loss of Kimbo Slice, a beloved member of the Bellator family.

Ferguson rose to fame after a series of street fights went viral on YouTube and his celebrity eventually transitioned into a career in mixed martial arts.Ferguson fought on several major cards including a bout against James Thompson in 2008, which was the first major MMA show to air on network television.Following his stint with Elite XC, Ferguson signed with the UFC where he became part of the cast of “The Ultimate Fighter” season 10.Ferguson fell in his opening matchup to current UFC heavyweight Roy Nelson in one of the most watched fights in the history of the long-running reality show.Ferguson then went 1-1 in his next two fights with the UFC before being released from the promotion in 2010. Following news of his death, UFC officials released a statement about the former street fighter turned Octagon veteran.“UFC is saddened to learn of the passing of Kevin Ferguson, known to fans around the world as Kimbo Slice,” UFC officials said. “Slice will forever be a part of UFC history as a contestant on season 10 of The Ultimate Fighter in 2009, and for having fought twice inside the Octagon at The Ultimate Fighter Finale and UFC 113. “He carried himself as a true professional during his time in our organization. While he will never be forgotten for his fighting style and transcendent image, Slice will also be remembered for his warm personality and commitment to his family and friends. UFC offers its sincere condolences to Slice’s family, friends and teammates at American Top Team.”Following his stint with the UFC, Ferguson then pursued a professional boxing career for a brief time before returning to MMA where he signed with Bellator.Ferguson performed there for two more fights before he was booked for a rematch with Thompson this summer prior to his passing.
