Exclusive – McGrath backs Dutch World Cup star to solve Man United’s defensive problems

first_imgPaul McGrath believes Aston Villa’s Ron Vlaar can solve Manchester United’s defensive problems.The Red Devils look short of experience at the back, following the departures of Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic, along with the expected sale of Patrice Evra.Southampton’s Luke Shaw has moved to Old Trafford and new boss Louis van Gaal has been linked with moves for Feyenoord star Stefan de Vrij and Borussia Dortmund’s Mats Hummels.But former United and Villa Park star McGrath believes the club should look closer to home and believes Villans stopper Vlaar, who was a star man for Van Gaal during Holland’s 2014 World Cup campaign, might be the answer.“Man United’s defence is an area which could do with strengthening,” he told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast show. “They have lost Vidic, Ferdinand and probably Evra.“With Luke Shaw coming in, it’s going to be a very young and inexperienced defence. I’m hoping he’ll bring in a good experienced defender. Rob Vlaar would be on that list.”last_img read more

COMPLETELY USELESS – ROSSES VERDICT ON VODAFONE MOBILE COVERAGE

first_imgVodafone customers in The Rosses have branded the company ‘completely useless’ as the on-going issues regarding mobile coverage in the area continues to worsen.Angry customers have said they’re now absolutely fed up with the coverage issues and said they’re tired of receiving the same old rhetoric from customer service staff.The issues for the majority of customers experiencing problems began around December. However, since the turn of the year the situation has increasingly deteriorated so much so that some customers have gone days without having any mobile coverage at all.The broadband and landline connection is described as being very good in the area, but those using Vodafone as their mobile network say the situation isn’t tolerable anymore.We received several e-mails over the last number of days from Donegal Daily readers in the area who have contacted the company via their landline to lodge complaints.They’ve told us that the Vodafone customer service staff tell them the issue will be resolved soon and the engineers are working hard to resolve the problem. One customer was told to put on 2G and that will sort the problem for them and their service will return to normal.“We’re fed up getting the same rhetoric from the customer service team giving us a whole host of excuses as to what the problem is.“It’s pretty clear they haven’t a clue what’s the problem and this has been going on now for four months, they’re completely useless.“We’re getting fed the same lines over and over again, the engineers are working very hard to fix the coverage issues and make improvements to it in the area, but it’s all just waffle.“I was told to turn on my 2G and that would alleviate the problems I’ve encountered, well it didn’t. “Maybe by making the issue public they may be prompted into doing something about it for a change and sort it out once and for all.It’s believed customers from Burtonport, Dungloe, Gweedore, Kincasslagh and Maghery have been affected by the issue.COMPLETELY USELESS – ROSSES VERDICT ON VODAFONE MOBILE COVERAGE was last modified: April 10th, 2015 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:BusinessFeaturesMobile CoveragenewsVodafonelast_img read more

Spanish press attack ‘in crisis’ and ‘aimless’ Real Madrid after defeat to Spurs

first_imgReal Madrid are a team in crisis and free fall following their Champions League “nightmare” against Tottenham, according to the Spanish press.Madrid suffered their first group-stage defeat since 2012 when they were humbled 3-1 by rampant Spurs at Wembley on Wednesday night.The result saw Tottenham qualify for the last 16 and put themselves in pole position to finish top of Group H ahead of the defending champions.With a five-point buffer to Borussia Dortmund, Madrid still look likely to progress as well. But the manner of the loss, which came hot on the heels of Sunday’s shock LaLiga defeat to Girona, has seen Zinedine Zidane’s men lambasted in the Spanish media.The headline on Madrid-based Marca, Spain’s biggest-selling sports daily, read: “Sound all the alarms”, with the paper adding that “Madrid’s crisis in the league has transferred to Europe. Tottenham were better in intensity, speed and punch.” “SOUND ALL THE ALARMS!” – Madrid-based Marca were scathing in their assessment of Real’s performancePais said Madrid had been left looking “groggy” and “laboured” by Spurs, with no flow in midfield, lacking a cutting edge in attack and showing cracks in defence, while the lead headline on AS – another paper based in the capital – read: “Nightmare in Wembley.”The Catalan-based newspapers of Sport and Mundo Deportivo were scathing in their analysis of Madrid’s current plight, with the LaLiga champions already eight points behind Barcelona domestically.Alongside a picture of a forlorn-looking Cristiano Ronaldo with his hands on his hips as Tottenham players celebrated in the background, Sport wrote as their headline: “Aimless.”The front cover also read: “Tottenham dance past an awful Madrid at Wembley and leave the Whiles with almost no chance of being first in the group. Madrid are in total crisis.”The paper added in its match report: “Tottenham hammered a lost team, without ideas or confidence at Wembley. The Whites suffered a severe punishment against a team who prevailed with football and faith.”Mundo Deportivo, meanwhile, said Madrid were in “free fall” following their defeat to Spurs, for whom a Dele Alli double and Christian Eriksen goal put them out of sight before Ronaldo netted a late consolation.An editorial read: “Real Madrid in free fall after losing in London. Real Madrid not only didn’t improve the image they gave in Girona, they suffered a thrashing by Tottenham.“The Whites showed in London they are in free fall and there are no signs of an immediate reaction. In London we saw the defeat in Girona was not an accident. What happened in Girona and what happened in London is a clear sign Real Madrid are in crisis.” Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo cut a frustrated figure throughout the game at Wembley 2 2last_img read more

Feds clear sale of four papers to MediaNews

first_imgSAN FRANCISCO – Federal regulators cleared the way Monday for McClatchy Co. to sell four newspapers in a $1 billion deal that will establish MediaNews Group Inc. as the San Francisco Bay Area’s largest newspaper publisher. The U.S. Justice Department removed a potential stumbling block by closing its antitrust investigation into the 3-month-old deal involving the San Jose Mercury News, Contra Costa Times and Monterey Herald in California and the St. Paul Pioneer Press in Minnesota. “After a careful investigation, … the antitrust division determined that the transaction is not likely to reduce competition substantially,” Justice Department officials said in a joint printed statement. Regulators interviewed more than 80 people, including newspaper advertisers, subscribers, labor leaders and industry experts, during the review. McClatchy had no immediate comment. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREFrumpy Middle-aged Mom: My realistic 2020 New Year’s resolutions. Some involve doughnuts.A separate inquiry into the deal by California Attorney General Bill Lockyer remains open, said spokesman Tom Dresslar. San Francisco businessman Clinton Reilly also has sued to block the deal, but a federal judge last week refused to issue a temporary restraining order to prevent McClatchy from turning over the papers to MediaNews. McClatchy took control of the papers a month ago when the Sacramento-based company bought the papers’ former owner, Knight Ridder Inc., for $4 billion. Before that acquisition closed, McClatchy agreed to sell the papers to Denver-based MediaNews in a complex deal that also involved the Hearst Corp. But the handoff couldn’t be completed until the Justice Department was satisfied the sale wouldn’t harm Bay Area readers and advertisers. As the review dragged on, McClatchy was left in the awkward position of owning four papers that it didn’t want. That situation threatened to become particularly thorny at the San Jose Mercury News, where labor contracts with about 600 workers expired June 30. The Justice Department’s blessing came on the same day that MediaNews’ financing for the deal was set to expire. In the Reilly lawsuit, MediaNews warned it might incur more than $20 million in additional expenses if its financing package unraveled. McClatchy plans to use the $1 billion to lower the debt that it took on in the Knight Ridder acquisition, saving the company about $163,000 per day in interest expense, according to papers filed in the Reilly lawsuit. McClatchy shares gained 41 cents to close at $42.39 on the New York Stock Exchange. The company’s stock price has dropped by 20 percent since the Knight Ridder takeover was announced in March, reflecting Wall Street’s dim outlook for the newspaper industry as more advertising shifts to the Internet. Privately owned MediaNews already owns the Oakland Tribune and a cluster of suburban papers in the Bay Area. Adding the San Jose Mercury News and Contra Costa Times will give MediaNews more than 700,000 subscribers in the region, dwarfing the Hearst-owned San Francisco Chronicle, which listed just under 400,000 paid readers as of March 31. All told, MediaNews owns 40 papers, including the Los Angeles Daily News, The Denver Post, The Salt Lake Tribune and The Detroit News. The Justice Department’s review of the McClatchy sale focused on Alameda and Contra Costa counties, a mostly suburban region located across the bay from San Francisco where the San Jose Mercury News and Contra Costa Times compete with MediaNews’ papers. Regulators concluded that MediaNews will continue to face adequate competition from the San Francisco Chronicle. What’s more, the Justice Department said it believes consumers will benefit from the savings that MediaNews envisions by combining the production and distribution systems of its Bay Area papers. As part of the McClatchy deal, Hearst is buying the Monterey and St. Paul papers and then immediately turning over those papers to MediaNews in exchange for a stake in MediaNews’ operations outside California. The Justice Department said it might still investigate Hearst’s planned partnership with MediaNews. McClatchy had to sell the St. Paul paper because it already owned the Minneapolis Star Tribune – a concentration of media power that wouldn’t pass muster with federal antitrust authorities. The company decided to sell 11 other Knight Ridder papers, including the three California papers destined for MediaNews, after concluding that they were unlikely to meet McClatchy’s growth requirements.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Alex McLeish appointed as Scotland national team boss

first_imgMcLeish becomes the permanent successor to Gordon Strachan, who left his post after the failure to reach the World Cup play-offs last October.A long-running pursuit of Northern Ireland boss O’Neill ended in public rejection, a situation that contributed to the departure of Scottish FA chief executive Stewart Regan. Walter Smith was then courted before the former Rangers boss changed his mind about coming out of retirement after delays in holding formal talks.McLeish has now been given the task of ensuring qualification for Euro 2020, when Hampden will stage three group stage games and one last-16 match.The new manager will work with his squad for the first time when they face Costa Rica and Hungary in friendly matches next month, before an end-of-season trip to face Mexico and Peru.McLeish will then lead the team into the inaugural Nations League campaign with games against Albania and Israel, which could provide a route to the Euros. Scotland haven’t reached a major finals since the 1998 World Cup but McLeish did enjoy a good record in his previous, brief, spell in charge. The side won seven of the ten games they played under him but a defeat to Italy saw them miss out on Euro 2008. “With Hampden Park as one of the host venues for Euro 2020 we have an amazing opportunity to showcase our talents to the world from our own back yard. “I am relishing the challenge of leading us to a major tournament and I cannot wait to get started.” The former international player, who has managed clubs in Scotland, England, Belgium and Egypt, held face-to-face talks with the Scottish FA board on Wednesday.As the preferred candidate of SFA president Alan McRae and vice-president Rod Petrie, his appointment was concluded after further board discussions on Thursday. Alex McLeish has been appointed as Scotland national team manager, the Scottish FA have confirmed.The 59-year-old has signed a two-year contract at Hampden, putting him in place until the end of the European Championships in 2020.McLeish becomes Scotland manager for a second time, having previously been in charge for a ten-month spell in 2007.He said: “There is much to be positive about in Scottish football, with players playing at the highest level and promising talent breaking through. last_img read more

Google’s Potential Vulnerability – An Open Ad Network

first_imgRobert Scoble recently wrote an interesting post, about FOG – Fear of Google (an acronym coined by CEO of eMarketer Geoff Ramsey). I observed this phenomenon strongly first hand at the Web 2.0 Expo and shared my thoughts on it in the R/WW post Thoughts from the Web 2.0 Expo. There is little doubt that the combination of Google’s exceptional revenue growth, continuously release of innovative products, and market share dominance, has created a considerable amount of fear, uncertainty and doubt.While understandable, I believe in one area Google is more vulnerable than analysts appreciate. More than one-third of Google’s revenue is completely out of their control. To be more specific, in their most recent quarterly results 37% or $1.35 Billion of revenue came from advertising delivered on other sites. Specifically, I believe they are vulnerable in much the same way that Microsoft was vulnerable in the mid-nineties. A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… When talking with people about this concept, they tend to gravitate toward the open source ad server – Open Ads (formerly PHP Ads). While I do believe that Open Ads is serving a valuable role, they are not an ad network, but an ad server. Interestingly, they are paid affiliate revenue from networks for encouraging their customers to augment their inventory with popular ad networks inventory.What I’m proposing certainly could leverage Open Ads as a framework for the ad server. However, it would have to be a hosted solution that simply runs Open Ads as the server.ConclusionSo what would the effect really be on Google? First of all, this is purely speculation at this point. Someone would need to start the project and then we’d all find out. (By the way, I’m happily running business development and product management at mSpoke, so I’m not going to be the one who does this.) However, since I’m the one speculating, my opinion would be that Google would still continue to grow via ads displayed on their own site. Just like Microsoft has continued to grow, even after open source competitors emerged.However, if the above model came to be, then Google would have some real short-term earning expectation challenges if it lose a third of its revenue. More importantly, I believe this would dramatically reduce the ubiquitous FOG — Fear of Google — that dominates the space currently.What are your thoughts? This probably will be controversial, so let’s discuss in the comments below. Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… If you think back with me, no one would have believed that thought leaders like Paul Graham would be declaring Microsoft dead just a decade later (and he wasn’t alone). Obviously, Microsoft is still generating considerable revenue – see the compelling response by Don Dodge. However, they are not feared by competitors and valued at a premium by Wall Street, like they were just ten years earlier.So what’s happened and should we anticipate a similar event occurring in Google’s future? I believe the answer is yes and I’ll try to lay out the likely scenario in the remainder of this post.What Happened at Microsoft?First, it is useful to examine what happened at Microsoft. Certainly, some of the platform on which innovative applications were built, along with users attention, shifted from the desktop (where Microsoft dominated) to the web. This shift enabled competitors to execute more aggressively.Yet another component, that can’t be overlooked, was the emergence of competitive open source software projects. The transparency and accessibility of open source projects like Linux, MySQL and Firefox changed competitor and analyst perceptions of Microsoft. I also believe (although don’t know how to quantify it) that it also changed users’ affinity and trust with the Microsoft Brand.Where could Google Be VulnerableAs I’ve already alluded to, I believe Google is currently in a similarly vulnerable situation. It would be a serious blow to the organization to see more than one-third of their revenue evaporate. (While they do have contracts with some of the larger online properties that leverage their ad network, even in that case those networks could switch when the contract comes up for renewal.) Just like Microsoft saw open source projects emerge and disrupt their dominance, I believe a competitor in the ad network space (hereafter referred to as an “open ad network”) could introduce a new more open and transparent economic structure to the ad network ecosystem and disrupt Google’s Network Revenue.Specific Proposal: Open Ad NetworkTypically when discussing this with someone, the first thing they point out is that there are other ad networks online today. Yes, there certainly are lots of competing ad networks, but they tend to operate within the same economic structure that Google does and not as well. They secure the advertisements and deliver them on a partner’s site, keeping a percentage of the revenue. This made more sense when the original ad networks were emerging, because the ads were sold via expensive direct relationships with the advertisers. However, more recently, a significant number of the ads are sold to long-tail advertisers via a self-service mechanism.A few months ago, I wrote two “think out loud posts” on my personal blog reflecting on how an ‘open ethos’ could reinvent an industry. (Part 1and Part 2). While thinking through those posts I came across an excellent book by O’Reilly that came out in 1999, “Open Source: Voices from the Open Source Revolution”. It included an essay by Robert Young, one of the founders of Red Hat.One of the quotes has significantly influenced me since first reading it. Robert states:“You can’t compete with a monopoly by playing the game by the monopolist’s rules. The monopoly has the resources, the distribution channels, the R&D resources; in short, they just have too many strengths. You compete with a monopoly by changing the rules of the game into a set that favors your strengths…”At the time, no one knew how successful Red Hat would become. However, it certainly has done exactly what Robert predicted — changed the rules of the game. That is exactly what I’m proposing, changing the rules of the game such that the publisher who delivers the ad would keep 100 percent of the revenue. However, just like there are for-profit open source companies (see my post on Open Source Business Model) — this would be a for-profit open ad network.Ok, how do you make money?Recently, I interviewed Chris DiBona, open source program manager at Google. He had an interesting take on commercial applications being ‘vulnerable’ to open source competitors. Rather than talk about companies being ‘vulnerable’ he talked about them changing their business model:“Here’s how I think of it: if a commercial entity finds that they can no longer sell their software because a viable open source project has risen to displace them, they really have to decide if they want to start selling services around the open source offerings or get out of that particular line of business. IBM has done a terrific job of the former.”That is exactly the model I’m proposing. It’s just that instead of talking about software license revenue evaporating, I’m talking about a new entrant making it no longer profitable for ad networks to take a cut of the revenue for ads displayed on their partner’s page views. An open ad network would force the industry to make money by selling services around the network, instead of taking a percentage of the revenue on the network.How is this different from Open Ads?

deliGoo Mashes Google with del.icio.us

first_imgWhy Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Related Posts The biggest drawback, however, is that creating a search engine takes time, and it has to recreate yours every time you use it. (At least, every time you navigate back to the page … if you create a search engine and keep the results page open, it will save that search engine for as long as the page is active.) In the interest of time, deliGoo was set up so that you could use it without registering, but it would make a lot more sense if it remembered you and didn’t have to rebuild your engine every time you needed to search.I think the service would be much more useful if it let users sign up and create one or more custom search engines and had them readily accessible without having to wait for Google to index the sites each time. The site could add a manual or scheduled update option, so that if it has been a week and you’ve added 100 new bookmarks to your del.icio.us account, you can update your engine — but on your schedule so you aren’t forced to wait when you want access to your information quickly.

The way it works is by creating a Google Custom Search engine based on all of a user’s del.icio.us bookmarks, all of the bookmarks under a single tag, or all of the bookmarks under a single tag from a single user.This can be very helpful for people who want to find something from among many untagged bookmarks, or for people who don’t care to bother with tags but still want to get some utility out of del.icio.us. deliGoo can also be helpful to search among the collective knowledge of a large group of people (i.e., if I search only among sites tagged with “MySQL,” I am presumably searching among the knowledge of a bunch of database gurus).Unfortunately, deliGoo has some oddities and drawbacks that make it less useful than it could be. One of the major things that jumped out at me is just how useless the Firefox extension actually is. The purpose of the extension is to provide quick access to a deliGoo search engine, however, all it really does is provide a link to their search page.
