Half-time: Chelsea 0 Arsenal 0

first_imgArsenal had Gabriel sent off at the end a fiery but goalless first half at Stamford Bridge.An action-packed end to a 45 minutes lacking chances saw Diego Costa and Gabriel both booked, with the Gunners defender then shown a straight red card for kicking out at the Chelsea striker.Before then Chelsea were unable to find a breakthrough in an even first half.The Blues struggled to create clear opportunities, but looked lively in attack with Costa a threat in behind the Arsenal defence, and Pedro and Oscar both prominent.Pedro shot wide after a neat move, Cesc Fabregas had a long-range strike easily saved by Petr Cech and Eden Hazard claimed for a penalty after going down in the box following a challenge from Garbriel.But Arsenal also posed problems to a defence without the dropped John Terry.Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho left Terry on the bench, preferring Kurt Zouma in defence alongside Gary Cahill with Branislav Ivanovic as captain.And in the main they dealt well with the pace of Theo Walcott despite some threatening moments on the break.Chelsea: Begovic; Ivanovic, Zouma, Cahill, Azpilicueta; Matic, Fabregas; Pedro, Oscar, Hazard; Costa.Subs: Blackman, Terry, Mikel, Ramires, Loftus-Cheek, Falcao, Remy.Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

Africa to get even more broadband

first_imgThe proposed new submarine cable willbe the first to link Africa with SouthAmerica directly.(Image: Tyco Telecommunications)The African continent is now served bya number of undersea cable systems,and there is more on the way.(Image: Telkom)MEDIA CONTACTS • Valérie La GambaAlcatel-Lucent media office, EMEA region+33 1 30 77 35 91Janine ErasmusWith the landing of the new West African Cable System on South African soil on 19 April 2011, not long after the implementation of the East African Submarine System (Eassy) and Seacom, Africans could be forgiven for thinking it could not get any better.However, there is more to look forward in terms of better broadband capacity.The latest scheme received the blessing of the BRICS nations – Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa – at their most recent summit held earlier in April. The five nations are to back the construction of a new undersea cable that will connect South Africa, Angola and Brazil – although they won’t fund it directly.Preliminary estimates put the cost at R3-billion (US$445-million).Known as the South Atlantic Express (SAEx), the cable will initially offer a speed of 12.8Tbit/s. It will connect Nigeria and Angola to Mtunzini in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa, leave the continent to land at Fortaleza on Brazil’s northeast coast, and then provide onward connectivity to the US through the GlobeNet system.Mtunzini is already a hub of local connectivity, as it’s the South African landing point for both the Seacom and Eassy cables.SAEx will be the first cable to cross the south Atlantic, but it will provide extra capacity in the other direction too, to India via Seacom and then using various cable systems to connect Africa to Asian countries, including China.For Africans, this means a shorter electronic route to the US, seen as the global internet capital and the location of some of the world’s biggest servers. The shorter travelling distance for data will cut down on latency – or the dreaded lag. Most local internet traffic currently arrives in the US via a much longer Europe-north Atlantic route.SAEx is to be driven by local black-owned technology investment company eFive Telecoms. EFive has contracted Paris-based Alcatel-Lucent to construct the cable through its subsidiary Alcatel-Lucent Shanghai Bell Co, the global corporation’s flagship company in China.High African growth rateCEO of eFive Lawrence Mulaudzi said his company believes that Africa’s high growth rate calls for the development of such projects.“The planned submarine network will also provide cable route diversity to South America, making the most economical and operational sense in the current landscape,” he said in a statement.Early reports hint at Chinese funding for the project, in association with South Africa’s Industrial Development Corporation. The Bank of China could supply up to 60% of the funds.With planning already well advanced, eFive hopes that SAEx will be operational by June 2013. If all goes well, said Mulaudzi, it may go live in the first quarter of the year.A number of South African service providers and technology companies are currently involved in upgrading terrestrial communications infrastructure, which will be able to take full advantage of the souped-up submarine capacity.Among them are local fixed-line operator Telkom, state-owned Broadband Infraco, and two consortiums made up of big-name players in local telecoms, including service providers Internet Solution, Neotel, and Vodacom.last_img read more

Disclosure, use and sale limitations with Big Data

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Have you ever wondered why your recent web searches for items or information show up on other websites you visit? Frequently, these recent searches appear in the form of advertisements along an edge of another webpage you are viewing. These advertisements are typically provided by third party data aggregators. These third party data aggregators play a crucial role in target advertising if a “data” company does not already have in-house capabilities to capture this type of data.Third party data aggregation is specifically addressed in “The Privacy and Security Principles for Farm Data” published by the America Farm Bureau Federation with their policy about Disclosure, Use and Sale Limitation:“An (Agriculture Technology Provider) ATP will not sell and/or disclose non-aggregated farm data to a third party without first securing a legally binding commitment to be bound by the same terms and conditions as the ATP has with the farmer. Farmers must be notified if such a sale is going to take place and have the option to opt out or have their data removed prior to that sale. An ATP will not share or disclose original farm data with a third party in any manner that is inconsistent with the contract with the farmer. If the agreement with the third party is not the same as the agreement with the ATP, farmers must be presented with the third party’s terms for agreement or rejection.”The key points of this principle regarding data disclosure, use and sale limitations include making sure growers understand the terms outlined in their contract as well as how any data is being shared or possibly sold to a third party. This principle draws on the need to be transparent around who has access to farm data and if data will be supplied to a third party or business affiliate. Further, it is important to have legal contracts relating to not only the ATP data relationship but contracts with other entities that provide data services (or access) as well. This need of full disclosure and the ability to understand contracts has been reported by recent Big Data surveys of farmers as being a matter of primary concern.An ATP will not sell or distribute any non-aggregated farm data to third party without consent from the grower. Additionally, if a sale of data is to be conducted on behalf of the grower by the ATP, the grower must be notified. If the grower agrees, the contract with the third party aggregator must either be the same, or a new contract should be provided for the grower to review.While some growers are comfortable with their farm data being aggregated and used as a marketing tool, others are not. Big data companies will have the ability to provide targeted marketing with information based on data collected similar to those seen online when searching for goods.Growers should be given the protection and choice about how their data is being used and sold to third party data aggregators. By specifically reviewing the disclosure, use and sale limitations within an ATP contract, growers have the ability to make an informed decision about how their data will be used, on their own terms.last_img read more

Pasture weaning versus drylot weaning

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Calf management strategies involving pasture weaning coupled with maternal contact (i.e., fence-line weaning) have been recommended as possible best-management practices for minimizing weaning stress and reducing subsequent feedlot morbidity compared with drylot weaning. Recently a study was done to evaluate the effect of fence-line or drylot weaning on the health and performance of beef calves during weaning, receiving, and finishing.At weaning, calves (average weaning age of 180 days) were assigned one of three weaning methods:drylot weaning + complete visual and auditory separation from damspasture weaning + fence-line contact with damspasture weaning + fence-line contact with dams + supplemental feed delivered in a bunk.All calves were individually weighed at the time of maternal separation and were given initial vaccinations against respiratory pathogens. In addition, all calves were treated for internal and external parasites. Booster vaccinations were administered 14 days later. At the end of the 28-day weaning period, all calves were shipped four hours to a feedlot.Body weight of drylot calves was greater than that of pasture weaning or pasture weaning plus supplement at the conclusion of the 28-day weaning period. This was expected since the diet for the drylot calves was formulated for higher gains. Providing supplement to pasture fed calves was intended to accustom pasture-weaned calves to eating out of a bunk rather than to promote gains that were competitive with drylot calves.Following the 28-day weaning period and a four-hour transportation event, calves on all treatments began the receiving phase of the experiment. Calves were observed at the time of feeding during the first six days of the receiving period in an attempt to ascertain their desire to eat from a bunk. A greater proportion of drylot than pasture weaned calves came to the bunk at the time of daily feed delivery during the first 5 days of receiving. Drylot calves had greater average daily gains than either pasture weaned calves to day 60 in the feedlot.In this experiment, the health of drylot weaned calves was not different from that of pasture-weaned calves. Adoption of preconditioning management practices by the cow-calf segment of the beef industry has been relatively slow (e.g., 49.8% of cow-calf producers sold their calves immediately after maternal separation.Dry-matter intake of steers assigned to pasture was not different from that of drylot or pasture plus supplement during finishing. Pasture weaned steers gained body weight at a greater rate and had greater feed efficiency during finishing than drylot steers or pasture plus supplement steers.Body weight at slaughter was not different among treatments. Under the conditions of the current experiment, the pasture weaned steers appeared to fully compensate for previous nutritional restriction during the finishing period. Moreover, USDA yield grade, marbling score, percentage of carcasses grading USDA Choice or greater, did not differ among treatments.last_img read more
