first_imgLoic Remy’s equaliser – his third goal since joining QPR – cancelled out Steven Fletcher’s opener at Loftus Road.Rangers, without injured keeper Julio Cesar but boosted by the return of Bobby Zamora, made a determined start and Junior Hoilett twice fired wide in the opening 10 minutes.But they were undone after Stephane Sessegnon wriggled away from Ji-sung Park on the right-hand side.Sessegnon’s ball to the far post was collected by Adam Johnson, whose driven cross was turned in by Fletcher from close range.A mixture of good fortune and Remy’s clinical finishing hauled Rangers level on the half-hour mark.Andros Townsend’s speculative shot ricocheted off Sunderland defender John O’Shea into the path of the French striker, who made no mistake.Remy then had a chance to put his side ahead but blazed over following Zamora’s knock-down.QPR (4-4-2): Green; Bosingwa, Samba, Hill, Fabio; Townsend, Mbia, Park, Hoilett; Remy, Zamora.Subs: Murphy, Wright-Phillips, Mackie, Granero, Onouha, Jenas, Bothroyd.

first_imgTags:#Google#mobile#web jolie odell What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … Related Posts Ever since finding myself the happy owner of a Droid (+1 for early Christmas presents), I’ve found myself increasingly interested in the app market for Android-powered devices.As has been noted in many iPhone/Droid sudden-death-round comparisons, the latter languishes in quality and quantity of available applications. Perhaps in an effort to increase Droid’s competitiveness in the market, the powers that be have created a new section of resources for Android developers. Let the games (and other apps) begin!In the new Resources tab of the online Android SDK documentation, devs can now access technical articles, some pretty detailed tutorials, a breakdown of platform versions, common tasks, troubleshooting tips, a community across groups/IRC/Twitter channels and a library of code for sample apps – just what a mobile/smartphone developer would need to get started.The list of sample code now includes:API DemosBluetooth ChatContact ManagerHomeJetBoyLunar LanderMultiple Resolutions Note PadSearchable DictionarySnakeSoft KeyboardWiktionary Wiktionary (Simplified)The Android dev team has also taken their most popular developer blog posts and turned them into a series of technical articles ranging in scope from backward compatibility issues and future-proofing apps to layout tricks and text-to-speech uses.Currently, around 10,000 applications exist in the Android Market as compared to the (roughly) eleventy bajillion apps in the Apple App Store. Hopefully, these resources will help this open-source mobile development platform take off, allowing Android’s available applications to become a selling point for Android-powered devices rather than a point ceded to Apple in the smartphone wars.center_img Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces The Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technology Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagementlast_img read more


first_imgThe Lucknow Metro has received the much-awaited clearance from the Commissioner Metro Railway Safety for starting its commercial run for public.CMRS Satish Kumar Pandey gave his certification to the Lucknow Metro after “inspecting the trial run of the train at the maximum operating speed of 80 kmph,” the Lucknow Metro Rail Corporation, the agency responsible for its construction, announced on Monday evening.The inspection was carried out by Mr. Pandey along with senior LMRC officials by running the train from the Transport Nagar Metro station to Charbagh Metro station to and fro.“The trial run was completed successfully,” said Amit Kumar Srivastava, LMRC spokesperson.Kumar Keshav, Managing Director of LMRC, said: “Getting all the required technical clearances from the Ministry of Railway and finally certification from the Commissioner Metro Rail Safety today to commence revenue operations on the Priority Corridor of the Lucknow Metro Project from Transport Nagar to Charbagh has been a great achievement for all of us”.The Lucknow Metro would soon be open to public use “at any convenient date,” Mr. Keshav said.The CMRS had earlier inspected the Metro project thrice in July and once in August but wanted some additional tests of running the train at the maximum speed of 80 kmph, as per mandatory requirements.The work for the Lucknow Metro started in September 2014 and the trial run on its priority corridor was conducted on December 1, 2016. Amid much publicity by the previous Samajwadi Party government, the services were slated to start on March 26. The target, however, could not be met and even after the Yogi Adityanath government came the power the project kept getting delayed. After all all works on the priority section of the rail and required trials for safety measure were complete, and arrival of the required number of trains, the Lucknow Metro only required the clearance from the CMRS to start services.Metro services in Lucknow will start with the 8.5 km-long ‘priority corridor’ on the North-South line (Chaudhary Charan Singh Airport to Munshipulia), which is also Phase-1A of the project.The total distance of the North-South Corridor is 22. 878 km, consisting of 21 stations, including right elevated ones. The entire stretch of the Phase-1A of the Metro is expected to be completed by 2019.The second phase of the project is the East-West Corridor, stretching from the Charbagh Railway station to Vasantkunj, a distance of 11km. Though included in the Detailed Project Report (DPR) of the Metro, it is yet to get approval. There will be only 12 stations on this stretch.The estimated cost of the 22.878 km long Phase-1A of the project is ₹6,928 crore, a joint venture of the State and Central governments. The Lucknow Metro will also get a loan assistance of €450 million (₹3,502 cr) from European Investment Bank (EIB) for its Phase-1A project. The estimated expenditure for “Priority Corridor,” which is operational first, is ₹2,000 crore. Metro-man E. Seedharan is the principal advisor of the Lucknow Metro.According to the project DPR, daily expected ridership on the North-South corridor is 6.44 lakh (year 2020), while for the East-West line it is much less at 2.43 lakh, also estimated for the year 2020. The capacity of each six coach unit is 1574 passengers.The Lucknow Metro was last year adjudged the best Metro project for “Excellence in Innovative Designs” at the 5th Annual Metro Rail Summit in New Delhi. The exterior and interior of the train would prominently feature the rich culture of Lucknow, also known as the City of Nawabs. The front shape of train shows the spirit of the Roomi Gate, Bara-Imambara & Asifi Masjid, while the exterior livery in golden colour is inspired by the Chikankari craftsmanship.One of the highlights of the project would be the special balanced cantilever span of 255 meters, executed at a height of 21.5 meters above ground while passing over 12 railway tracks.last_img read more

first_imgAustralia have wrapped up the Womens Open Trans-Tasman test series with a dominant display in the second test.In worsening conditions at Rotorua International Stadium, it looked like the trend from the first match of the day may continue for the women as the Touch Blacks opened the scoring through Tay-a Antonievic.It would prove to be the only time the hosts crossed the line for the half as the Aussies went onto score four unanswered tries in the first half for a 4-1 lead.The first of those was to Lizzie Campbell before Sammy Rodgers held onto a long ball from Manly teammate Danni Davis in difficult conditions to get the Australians in front. A Hannah Dyball first half double on the left hand side rounded out the first half scoring giving the Aussies a comfortable lead at the break.The girls picked up where they left off in the second stanza with tries to Marriki Watego and Dani Davis to push the lead out to five before the Touch Blacks could find the line again bringing the score back to 6-2 through McKayler Moore.Watego was back at it again soon after to pick up her second of the night and a with a Hannah Dyball hat-trick in the bag the Australians cruised to a comfortable 8-5 win and an unassailable 2-0 series lead heading into tomorrow’s third and final test.last_img read more

first_imgTehran: Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani called on Middle East states on Thursday to “drive back Zionism”, in an Army Day tirade against the Islamic republic’s archfoe Israel. Speaking flanked by top generals before troops began their annual march-past, Rouhani also sought to reassure the region that the weaponry on display was for defensive purposes and not a threat. “The region’s nations have lived alongside each other for centuries and never had a problem… If there is a problem, it is caused by others,” he said in the speech broadcast live on state television. Also Read – Saudi Crown Prince ‘snubbed’ Pak PM, recalled jet from US “Let us stand together, be together and rid the region of the aggressor’s presence.” Rouhani assured neighbouring countries that Iran’s armed forces are “never against you or your national interests” but are “standing against the aggressors.” “The power of our armed forces is the power of the region’s countries, the Islamic world.” he said. “If we have a problem in the region today, its roots are either with Zionism or America’s arrogance.” Rouhani called on Muslim nations to band together and “restore the historical right of the nation of Palestine,” saying that “Zionism … has been committing crimes in the region for the past 70 years”, “The final victory will surely be with the righteous,” he said. Also Read – Record number of 35 candidates in fray for SL Presidential polls The military parade was held next to the south Tehran mausoleum of the Islamic Republic’s founder Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini. It showcased some of Iran’s latest weaponry, including the domestically designed and manufactured Kowsar fighter jet, which was first unveiled last year. Iran also displayed its short-range Zelzal missile and an upgraded model of the Russian S-200 air defence system. US-manufactured Bell, Cobra and Chinook helicopters bought before the Islamic revolution of 1979 also took part in the air display. Diatribes against Israel are standard fare of official speeches in Iran, although some, such as a call by Rouhani’s firebrand predecessor Mahmoud Ahmadinejad for Israel to be “wiped off the map”, have triggered international condemnation. Iran does not recognise Israel and opposition to the Jewish state has been a central tenet of official policy since the revolution. Iran has supported Palestinian radical groups and has vociferously opposed the now moribund Middle East peace process under which the Palestinians were offered limited autonomy in the territories captured in the Six-Day War of 1967. Rouhani has previously called Israel a “cancerous tumour”, and called on Muslim governments to unite against it and its US ally. Iranian officials have warned repeatedly that Israel will soon cease to exist, but have usually been careful to underline that that will come about not through a direct attack by Iran. “In 25 years’ time, with the grace of God, no such thing as the Zionist regime will exist in the region,” supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said in 2015. The presence of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards in Syria supporting President Bashar al-Assad’s forces in the eight-year civil war has sharply increased tensions between the regional foes. Israel has said publicly that it has carried out hundreds of air and missile strikes targeting the forces of Iran and its Lebanese ally Hezbollah in Syria. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has vowed that he will never allow Iran to establish a long-term military presence in Israel’s northeastern neighbour. Netanyahu has been an outspoken opponent of a landmark nuclear deal Iran signed with major powers in 2015 and was the leading supporter of US President Donald Trump’s decision to withdraw from it and reimpose crippling economic sanctions last year. Washington’s European allies have refused to follow suit and they, along with China and Russia, continue to support the deal. But the Trump administration has sought to forge an anti-Iran axis within the Middle East bringing together Israel and the Gulf Arab states to make common cause against what they see as Iranian “meddling” in the region. Last week, Washington placed Iran’s Revolutionary Guards on its blacklist of “foreign terrorist organisations,” the first time it had imposed the sanction on a military arm of a foreign government. Rouhani warned Washington on Thursday that “an insult to the Guards… is an insult to the great nation of Iran.” “America’s leaders are lost in their delusions,” he said, adding that Washington was the real source of “terrorism” in the region.last_img read more
