NBC Was Prepared For Criticism Of New Camera Angle For Notre Dame Game

first_img Evidently, NBC was prepared for the backlash.On Friday, NBC Sports published a lengthy article about the sideline Skycam, explaining the decision to make the change to the new look. In it, NBC Notre Dame writer Doug Farmer clearly anticipated what has been on Twitter today.The sideline Skycam isn’t going anywhere. You don’t need to @ me with your complaints.I like the camera, and if you have some patience, you might too …— Douglas Farmer (@D_Farmer) September 14, 2019From the post:It will undoubtedly take most viewers some getting used to, but perhaps not as much as overreactions will indicate. Open minds will see the same perks to a more dynamic primary camera that led “Notre Dame on NBC” producer Rob Hyland to champion the idea in the first place.“To me, you’re closer to the action,” Hyland said this week while waiting for confirmation the setup of the additional camera system had gone according to plan. “When the play comes to a conclusion, the ability to collapse and move dynamically with that action, you literally feel like you’re right there getting up from the tackle. …“The ultimate goal is to bring the viewer closer to the action and to get them to the line of scrimmage. The only way to do that is through a camera that travels with the line of scrimmage.”Hyland, the producer quoted in the article, offers up a few examples of where the new camera was beneficial for NBC in its Week 1 Sunday Night Football broadcast of the New England Patriots vs. Pittsburgh Steelers.The new view does allow for a close view of every player on the field at times, which has its advantages, and can reveal visuals that other angles don’t allow for.Hyland admits that there is still a learning curve, and NBC could go away from it when necessary.“We want to enhance the viewer’s experience and make Notre Dame’s broadcasts unique to better serve the Notre Dame audience,” Hyland said. “The second it doesn’t do that, this camera will not be used as a primary camera.“… If we get into a down-and-distance or a specific situation that prevents us from doing our job, which is to document the sporting event we’re at, you’re not going to see us using this camera in a live capacity.”It is far too early to know if this new camera will be around for the long haul, but NBC has certainly invested in it, and you can probably expect it for the foreseeable future.Notre Dame opened on the road at Louisville, a 35-17 win broadcast on ESPN. The Irish had a bye last week, so this is the first NBC game. Brian Kelly’s team is blasting UNM 59-7 early in the fourth quarter.[NBC Sports] Notre Dame runs back an interception for a touchdown against New Mexico on NBC.NBCNotre Dame football is on NBC for the first time this year. The Fighting Irish are typically pretty proud of its unique arrangement with the major network, but fans are not thrilled today.NBC is utilizing a new camera called the “Sideline Skycam,” that brings a new, and for some, uncomfortable view of the field. If we’ve learned anything through the years, it is that people do not like having major changes to the way they watch football games.Notre Dame tested out the camera for the Notre Dame spring game, and for the time being, it sounds like it is here to stay for Fighting Irish home games on NBC.Fans will likely adjust to it as it becomes the new normal, but for this first run during today’s game against New Mexico, the Fighting Irish faithful and others watching the game are none too happy.last_img read more

Correction Music Festival Deal story

first_imgNEWPORT, R.I. – In a story July 28 about a deal to keep two renowned music festivals in Newport, The Associated Press erroneously reported when the first festival was held. The Newport Jazz Festival began in 1954, and the Newport Folk Festival began in 1959; the two did not begin in 1969. The story also incorrectly reported the number of people who attend the festivals. Each event draws 10,000 people daily, not 10,000 people overall for both festivals.A corrected version of the story is below:Newport jazz, folk festivals secure deal for 25 more yearsRhode Island and the Newport Festivals Foundation have reached a license agreement to keep the jazz and folk festivals in the city for 25 more yearsThe Newport, Rhode Island, jazz and folk festivals are ready for an encore.Gov.

The foundation on Saturday announced a 40-year lease with the department for a building for that venture.The festivals each draw 10,000 people a day.Raimondo says the plan is to help sustain Rhode Island’s attraction as an “unforgettable, fun-sized destination.”The jazz festival started in 1954, and the folk festival launched five years later.last_img read more

Two decades after quitting politics McKenna carves out premier emeritus role

FREDERICTON — Twenty years ago Friday, Frank McKenna fulfilled a promise and resigned as New Brunswick premier, exactly one decade to the day after he took power.He did not, however, leave the public stage.Instead, he has carved out a new role — a sort of “premier emeritus” who both cheerleads for the Maritimes and offers harsh truths about its economic malaise.“He’s candid. He says what’s on his mind and he has a very good mind. He has never forgotten New Brunswick and has never forgotten his roots,” said Nova Scotia MP Scott Brison, president of the federal Treasury Board.Brison said it’s no surprise that McKenna continues to speak out on public policy — and that people want to listen.On Wednesday night, he was in Halifax, speaking on trade and immigration at the Atlantic Institute for Market Studies.When Energy East died last week, there was McKenna — on BNN, CTV and elsewhere, saying the Maritimes were “royally steamed at losing out of being part of the national dream with all of those jobs and opportunity.”The 69-year-old deputy chairman of Toronto-Dominion Bank has pushed for greater immigration as an antidote to a declining population base, and warned about “alarming levels” of government debt in New Brunswick.“Our destiny is looking increasingly desperate. A tsunami is coming and the early waves are starting to hit our shore. It is not hyperbole to say that we are literally facing an extinction event if we do not take action,” McKenna said in a November 2015 speech.In an interview, McKenna said he tries to “pick my spots,” and usually talks to current leaders before he speaks out. But he wants the region to have some needed conversations.“I just feel that I’ve had enough experience and knowledge that I can contribute to the debate and at least provoke the debate,” said McKenna, who lives in Toronto but maintains a vacation property in his home province.“I do think it’s helpful for all of us who have left public life to maintain an interest and be part of the debates. We should have learned something from our mistakes, if not our successes and we should be able to pass that on.”Don Desserud, a political scientist at the University of Prince Edward Island who closely follows New Brunswick politics, said “premier emeritus” is a good way to describe McKenna.“He has a very strong reputation for being a clear speaker, a clear thinker, a person with a lot of integrity, a lot of intelligence. Not everyone agrees with Frank McKenna’s take on economic and political issues, but everyone agrees that he brings thought to it, and brings a sincerity that the public craves,” Desserud said.“You always got the sense that he believes strongly that New Brunswick could succeed, that Canada should succeed, and that everything he said was designed to help and bring some level of greater prosperity to the province and the region of the country.”McKenna was born in rural Apohaqui, N.B. He established a successful law practice in Chatham, N.B., before entering provincial politics in 1982. Three years later he became Liberal leader, and on Oct. 13, 1987, the party captured all 58 seats in the legislature.He quit a decade later, later serving as Canada’s ambassador to the United States and making his mark in business and banking. He has served as chairman of CanWest Global, and on the boards of Noranda, Shoppers Drug Mart and General Motors. He is currently chairman of Brookfield Asset ManagementMcKenna would likely have been the front-runner for the federal Liberal leadership in 2006, but chose not to run in the race to replace Paul Martin. Donald Savoie, a Moncton professor and author, said McKenna would have likely become prime minister had he run.But Savoie said his friend has carved out a valuable role for himself in his political retirement.“His commitment to the province is still as strong as when he was first elected,” said Savoie, Canada Research Chair in Public Policy and Governance at the University of Moncton.“He’s still not only saying things, but also doing things. He’s moving TD jobs to New Brunswick, being front and centre on the pipeline debate. There’s no question that his heart is in New Brunswick,” Savoie said.In May, McKenna announced plans for a new TD call centre in Moncton — the bank’s second in the province — that the New Brunswick government said would create up to 575 full-time jobs.“Every day I work on projects that will be good for our region. Even within TD Bank we’ve been able to bring jobs this way and would like to bring more,” McKenna said.“I really enjoy what I do now. I have a lot of freedom to become involved in humanitarian issues and political issues at various levels that I find very stimulating and I love doing it.” read more

Iraq UN earmarks oil and electricity equipment for urgent delivery

Multi-million dollar contracts for heavy equipment and spare parts for Iraq’s oil and electricity sectors have been prioritized for immediate delivery after talks this month with United Nations agencies, the United States-run Coalition Provisional Authority (CPA) and Iraqi representatives, the UN Office of the Iraq Programme (OIP) announced today. The contracts, chosen from the UN Oil-for-Food programme’s humanitarian pipeline are fully funded from pre-war oil sales and include items urgently needed for the rehabilitation of Iraq’s infrastructure, OIP said. Regular weekly meetings of UN and Iraqi experts and CPA advisers have so far produced a list of 1,419 contracts with items totalling $1.95 billion, including the oil sector ($1.038 billion); electricity ($794 million); water and sanitation ($54 million); youth and sports ($19.4 million); labour and social affairs ($11 million). Security Council Resolution 1483, adopted on 22 May, extended for another six months Secretary-General Kofi Annan’s authority to run the Oil-for-Food programme, under which Baghdad was allowed to use oil sales to buy the food and humanitarian supplies on which 60 per cent of Iraqis had depended as their sole source of sustenance. The extension allows Mr. Annan to move urgently needed items from the programme pipeline of fully funded contracts totalling some $10 billion. Resolution 1483 also expanded the menu of deliverable items from food, medicines, water and sanitation supplies to include goods and supplies deemed by all parties to have “relative utility” based on post-war assessments of immediate and longer term reconstruction needs. The dimensions of this month’s list, with more items and sectors to follow, indicates the importance given to immediate needs in the electricity and oil sectors, OIP said. The lists of contracts in each sector represent more than 70 per cent of the total approved and funded contracts contained in the Oil-for-Food pipeline for these sectors. Meanwhile, the UN panel set up to process claims and pay compensation for losses and damage suffered as a result of Iraq’s invasion and occupation of Kuwait in 1990-1991 today made available a further $190.4 million, bringing to nearly $17.8 billion the total amount of compensation allocated so far.More than $150 billion in claims have been filed with the UN Compensation Commission (UNCC), of which $46.3 billion have so far been approved. Money for the awards comes from the UN Compensation Fund, which received up to 30 per cent of the revenue generated by Iraqi oil exports under the UN’s Oil-for-Food programme. read more

Cyber Safeguard Faces Big Hurdle

first_imgIn summary, there are two big problems: first, precious funds get squandered on the cost of sending text messages that never arrive to their intended destination. Secondly, a fledgling reputation is called into question because it appears to the end-user that the company didn’t hold up their end of the bargain.How to break the stalemate. With technical deployment issues on one side and sensitivities from their customer base on the other, how can online startups succeed with security on their services?Like a good epoxy, it’s a two-part plan: companies have to be up-front and transparent with their users on how they’re handling online security and why a mobile number is a critical ingredient to securing end-user account and personal information. Second, consumers have to do their part and get educated on the security process, inducing them to opt-in for 2FA offered by favorite apps, sites and social networks they subscribe to.Business leaders need real-time visibility in the form of verification tools that validate mobile numbers. With the right tools in place, companies can instantly notify users if they’ve entered an inaccurate mobile number, saving on the cost of text messaging fees and eliminating the possibility of incomplete authentication.Currently, only 6 percent of Ponemon survey respondent use enhanced verification tools, and all of them reported improved customer satisfaction, reduced customer support costs and higher conversion rates.As the most active year for cyber-criminal activity, according to Verizon’s Data Breach Investigations Report, 2013 has made us all too aware of our susceptibility to security breaches. It’s no longer acceptable for online organizations to ignore or push off security measures to protect their customers’ information.In fact, it’s not off-base to predict security provisions will soon become a decision-making consideration for consumers when making online purchases. Smart entrepreneurs preparing to launch online services should be making security a high priority when developing their go-to market strategy. Ultimately, their survival and way forward could depend on it.Related: Better Late Than Never? Target Accelerating Program to Detect Credit-Card Fraud.

Enroll Now for Free Cybercriminal activity is showing us that online security has the power to make or break a company. Following the massive media attention of Heartbleed, consumers are becoming hyper aware of their residual online trail and are increasingly demanding more secure online solutions such as two-factor authentication (2FA).Take Target — a prime example of what can happen when security isn’t already implemented or at the very top of the corporate “to-do” pile. The mega retailer simultaneously lost millions in damages, said goodbye to their CEO and severely compromised their reputation and consumer trust. The hack exposed roughly 70 million customer credit cards, and recent reports cite that online sales have slowed and likely won’t meet upcoming forecasts.Target can bounce back, but it will be a long road and require a lot of trust rebuilding for the brand. For new companies with unguarded online presences, vulnerable brand recognition and limited resources, experiencing any sort of security breach would cause irreparable and possibly irreversible damage.Related: 5 Steps to Keeping Your Private Communications SecureGone are the days when entrepreneurs could rely solely on innovation to power their online aspiration. The new rules of a successful launch look like this: “1: Create a million-dollar idea. 2: Launch online security measures to protect priority 1.”Busting the security myth. A common misconception about online security solutions is that they wind up hindering the user-experience by adding additional hoops for the user to jump through. But while an additional step is involved, solutions like two-factor authentication are actually proving to add some swagger to overall customer experience.When users opt-in for 2FA, following their username and password login, a second, temporary password is required to verify their identity.The secondary password can be delivered in multiple ways, the most popular being via text message. SMS-based 2FA, as its known, is emerging as the verification method of choice for many security conscious organizations due to its trifecta of benefits: it’s user-friendly, cost effective to integrate and use and it provides a high level of security.A recent Ponemon study said 68 percent of North American organizations agree there’s a need for more secure authentication methods over the traditional username and password method. As an alternative, nearly half of IT professionals surveyed (46 percent) plan to extend the usage of SMS-based 2FA in 2014 for identity verification and activation of online services.The devil is in the details. Security problem solved, right? Not so fast — while 2FA via SMS is the most recognizable and easiest to use, companies integrating security are at a crossroads with their end-users when it comes to the actual rollout.Given our exposed online landscape, it’s been found that consumers are largely unwilling to share their mobile number with online service providers — even if it’s in exchange for security. Considering their mobile number to be a personal identifier and valuable information, a YouGov survey found that only 11 percent of U.S. consumers would be willing to share their mobile number to add extra security to their social media accounts.Related: Why Your Credit Card Company Wants to Replace Magnetic Strips With MicrochipsAdding to the list of deployment challenges, another issue emerging with SMS-based 2FA is failed delivery of those SMS messages.

Storm strikes Thailand tourists stranded

first_imgSource = e-Travel Blackboard: N.J Thousands of tourists have been left stranded on Thailand islands after a severe storm closed off roads, rail, ferry and airline services.The airport at Koh Samui was shut down this week, cancelling all flights to and from the island as heavy rain and severe thunder struck the region. However the bad weather has not cleared up, according to a Thailand Tourism statement which expects to see strong storms cloud over Thailand until Friday.   “Southern residents have been warned to prepare for heavier flooding as severe rain is expected to continue in the region until Friday,” the statement read.“Tourists visiting southern of Thailand should regularly monitor local media to keep updated with the latest information.”The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade has advised travellers booked to fly into Thailand to take a ‘high degree of caution’ while a ‘do not travel’ has been issued for the Yala, Pattani, Narathiwat and Songkhla islands.  “Parts of southern Thailand, including Nakhon Sri Thammarat, Surat Thani, Phattalung, Chumphon, Trang and Satun, are experiencing severe weather conditions and flooding in some areas,” the statement read. “Flights and ferry services to tourist areas such as Koh Samui have also been affected. “You should check with your airline or tour operator for latest information on disruptions.”In an online statement Thai Airways International (THAI) said it has resumed flights into Samui to assist stranded tourists.“The airline is able to resume three flights to Samui today and to transport 600 passengers who were stranded on the island as a result of heavy flooding of the airport, causing its temporary closure yesterday,” THAI president Piyasvasti Amranand said.  “With the weather clearing up and the airport coming back to normal operations, THAI is able to operate these flights.”Bangkok Airways has also resumed 19 of its flights into Samui and has issued a no refund fee policy for unused flight tickets departing and arriving into Samui between 28-31 March.last_img read more

81 Canggu Volunteers Remove 50 Kilograms of Trash

first_img81 Canggu Volunteers Remove 50 Kilograms of Trash81 Canggu Volunteers Remove 50 Kilograms of TrashFinns Bali was proud to be part of a group of 81 people in Canggu who participated in Ocean Conservancy’s 32nd International Coastal Cleanup (ICC), the world’s largest single-day volunteer effort to remove trash from local waterways, beaches, lakes and rivers. Since the first ICC 32 years ago, over 12 million volunteers have removed more than 228 million pounds (more than 103 million kilograms) of trash!“We are thrilled that so many volunteers came out to keep Canggu’s beaches and coasts free of trash,” said Allison Schutes, Associate Director of the Trash Free Seas® Program at Ocean Conservancy. “Plastics in our ocean are a global problem and tackling it starts right here in our community. Everyone can make a difference for trash free seas.”In addition to removing 50kgs of trash from Canggu —including a huge entangled fishernet and 2221 cigarette butts, volunteers contributed to the world’s largest database on marine debris by logging each trash item in Ocean Conservancy’s Clean Swell app (available for free download from the App Store and Google Play). Scientists, researchers, industry leaders and policymakers rely on Ocean Conservancy’s Ocean Trash Index to inform policy and determine solutions to the growing marine debris crisis.Every year, millions of tons of trash—including an estimated 8 million metric tons of plastic waste—flow into the ocean, entangling wildlife, polluting beaches, and costing coastal municipalities hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars. Items like cigarette butts, plastic bags, beverage bottles, food wrappers, plastic bottle caps and plastic straws are among the most-commonly collected items. They are also among the most deadly to wildlife like seabirds and sea turtles. Plastics—which never fully biodegrade but rather break up into smaller and smaller pieces called microplastics—are of particular concern. Scientists predict that without concerted global action, there could be one ton of plastic for every three tons of fin fish in the ocean by 2025.Keeping our ocean free from trash is one of the easiest ways to improve the health of our ocean. From participating in beach cleanups to creating less trash, we can all play a part in keeping our ocean clean and free of trash.“The International Coastal Cleanup is a great way for individuals and their communities to help protect and preserve the ocean, and contribute valuable data to scientists and policymakers working on this issue,” said Nicholas Mallos, Ocean Conservancy’s director of Trash Free Seas. “We are so grateful for the hard work of FINNS BALI and all the Canggu volunteers in helping us achieve our shared vision for a cleaner, healthier ocean.”Source = Finns Balilast_img read more

Nick Waterhouse Nick Waterhouse Innovative Lei

first_img Nick Waterhouse, “Nick Waterhouse” (Innovative Leisure)“There’s an exit/and there’s a way out/the two just ain’t the same” is a typical lyric from Nick Waterhouse’s self-titled fourth album, a collection that stays true to his particular style and sets images and stories of 21st-century noir to soul and R&B sounds rooted in the 1950s and ’60s.“Undedicated,” the source of the words above, could be sung by the protagonist of Chris Isaak’s “Wicked Game” as he nears the end of the line — or, let’s be optimistic, a new start — and the tune’s baritone and tenor saxes help to paint a grim horizon: “Feel that old fear … that nobody’s gonna remember your name.”With an insistent little riff and dangerous guitar by Bart Davenport, “El Viv” is the kind of instrumental that helps understand why bands like The Ventures became so influential without having to sing a single word, while “Which Was Writ” is just as cool, its skeletal arrangements relying on a Telecaster, a baritone guitar and slightly reverbed vocals.Waterhouse does most of the songwriting himself and the one cover here is soul music legend Jo Armstead’s “I Feel an Urge Coming On,” an unabashed ode to kissing, hugging and whatever may consensually follow.“Black Glass” investigates global obsessions as the walls keep closing in and “Song for Winners” sounds cruel — “I hear no fearlessness/only fear” — but could just as well be a call for resolve and action.Waterhouse isn’t alone in the arena when it comes to looking back decades for sonic blueprints — the whole Daptone roster and Pokey LaFarge spring to mind — but there’s an edge to some of his subject matter that feels decidedly modern.Nick Waterhouse may be a man out of time but don’t confuse that with living in the past.Pablo Gorondi, The Associated Press by Pablo Gorondi, The Associated Press Posted Mar 6, 2019 12:15 pm PDT Review: Nick Waterhouse makes old soul sounds for new themescenter_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Emaillast_img read more
