‘No assurance Luzon pork now free from ASF virus’

first_img“We have 200percent surplus so even if we ban pork products from Luzon we will besustained. We have sources from Cebu and Cagayan,” Tabuada said. Extending the banon Luzon pork would be prudent, he said, to protect Iloilo’s swine industry. “We will study,together with our governor, on how long the ban would be based on the updatefrom the Department of Agriculture,” Tabuada said. But for thegovernor to make a sound decision on the possible extension of the temporaryban, Tabuada said his office would be requesting for updates from theDepartment of Agriculture-Bureau of Animal Industry on the ASF situation inLuzon and other areas. There is no knownvaccine against ASF yet. According to the National Meat Inspection Service(NMIS), death is certain. Pigs die in a span of two to 10 days upon affliction. Tabuada assuredconsumers that despite the ban Iloilo remains sufficient in pork supply. Tabuada said thePVO is making sure ASF won’t enter the province. Entry points are beingmonitored such as seaports and airports. Oct. 22 last year,Gov. Arthur Defensor Jr. issued Executive Order No. 159-A temporarily banningfor 90 days pork from the Luzon provinces of Rizal and Bulacan and countriespositive for the disease (Latvia, Poland, Romania, Russia, Ukraine, Luxembourg,Belgium, Bulgaria, Moldova, Czech Republic, South Africa, Zambia, Mongolia,Vietnam, Cambodia, Myanmar, Lao People’s Democratic Republic, South Korea,China and its special administrative region Hong Kong). ASF is a highlycontagious viral disease that affects pigs. It causes them to have high feverand lose appetite. It also causes hemorrhages in the skin and internal organs. ASF is notconsidered a human health threat. However, humans can become carriers of thevirus once tainted pork is ingested or if people get close to the infectedmeat, according to the NMIS. The virus can alsosurvive even if the meat has been processed or canned, it added. ILOILO – There isstill no assurance that pork and pork products from Luzon are now free from theAfrican swine fever (ASF) virus, according to Dr. Darel Tabuada of theProvincial Veterinary Office (PVO). The provincialgovernment has also intensified its ASF information dissemination to thepublic, particularly the hog raisers, said Tabuada.

Tighter scholarship control needed – Stewart

first_img Lost in system President of Harbour View football club Carvel Stewart says that local clubs should stop sending unqualified players on scholarships as it is hurting both the individuals and the country’s long-term football future. According to Stewart, student footballers who are not academically inspired should not be forced to go to college but should instead focus their efforts on making a professional career and only students with the requisite academic qualifications must take up these scholarship offers. “Their real intention is to play football professionally, and that (college) system doesn’t allow them to do that. We have to review it rationally and decide who are serious about academics,” he insisted. Stewart said that over the years he has seen players who lack the academic capacity get lost in the system, or come out with nothing, and he believes that this is also having a damaging effect on the nation’s football as the best young talent are getting lost in the US college system, and this, he says, is because they are not “academics”. “We have followed the college programme, and when we have an academic, and he gets a scholarship, we say ‘Go ahead’, but when he is not an academic we (Harbour View) say ‘No, you are a footballer’, that wouldn’t make any sense at all, and it has followed through. “We had players like Onandi Lowe. People came to me about him going to college, but that wouldn’t have worked. What worked for him is that he is a footballer, and his focus was becoming a professional footballer,” he reasoned. He added: “The league is also suffering from it because you don’t see the youngsters coming through the league. You see all of these youngsters performing at the schoolboy level, and when they leave school, you hear people asking for them. But they go and enjoy the bright lights over there (in the US), and then they disappear, and Jamaica’s football suffers because of it. So we have to correct that,” he stated.last_img read more

Now Live, Twitter’s New Ads: Are You Brave Enough for This?

first_imgShort-form social network Twitter has taken a bold new step in exploring its potential business model. The company appears to have begun promoting keywords in its “trending topics” list for sponsors. When users click on a promoted trending topic, they are brought to a search results page, where the page is topped by a promoted Tweet. They aren’t sent to an ad landing page, but to a live and uncensored conversation. That’s what we’re seeing with the new movie Toy Story 3 today at least. It’s a logical and interesting way for the company to make money. It’s also unlike almost any other advertising in history. Twitter announced its promoted Tweets search results program this Spring and social network watchers have been waiting to see promoted Tweets appearing in the middle of users’ streams. Tonight’s inclusion of sponsored trending topics may be the closest thing we’ve seen yet. (Twitter user @ed appears to have seen it first.) The company hasn’t yet responded to our request for comment on the new program.Recent research from HP found that the level of Twitter chatter about a movie could do a better job predicting that film’s box office performance than leading industry methods – so perhaps it’s no co-incidence that a film was first to put down money to increase the chatter.How These Ads Are Radically NewIt’s cool that the links aren’t just links to advertisements, but to the real-time conversation (good and bad) that users are having about the topic. Sponsorship is just a way to influence and increase the profile of the conversation about a product, without controlling it. That’s a radical proposition and one that would only work for brave or lovable sponsors. BP has spent millions of dollars buying Google ads for search terms like “oil spill,” for example, but is very unlikely to spend money promoting the Twitter conversation about its brand or related topics.So what about your company? Are you brave enough to buy an ad that would propel open-ended public conversation about your company towards the front of mind for tens of millions of people?Update: After publication, we learned that Peter Kafka of All Things D actually covered this program first last Friday. Some additional details are available in that report. marshall kirkpatrick A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Tags:#advertising#news#web Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hostingcenter_img Related Posts Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Marketlast_img read more

Via SXSW: Hands on with Kinoma Play’s Mobile Platform

first_imgRelated Posts Kinoma, a mobile platform company acquired by chipset maker Marvell back in February, is here at SXSW showing off its technology to interested users, developers and handset makers. The company’s smartphone experience called Kinoma Play is more than just a new app you can download on your mobile phone – it’s the smartphone version of a new app platform that will soon work on Android devices, both phone and tablet, in addition to some Windows Mobile and Nokia devices. It’s also available to handset makers and other hardware manufacturers to implement in their products.For app developers, the potential is the ability to develop apps that work on multiple phones through this platform. And for end users, Kinoma Play offers what is in many ways an improvement to the default Android experience.One of the nice things about using Android is that you can customize the phone to your own personal preferences. You’re not stuck using the same user interface that ships with Android, or even the handset maker’s own interface, like HTC’s Sense UI. Homescreen replacement apps, launchers and other customizations allow even the most novice smartphone users to make the phone their own.Along those lines, Kinoma Play, which will arrive in beta for Android in mid-2011, will appeal to those who like trying new front-end experiences for their device.Kinoma said it will give us our readers interested in the Android beta exclusive invites, so stay tuned for that in the coming weeks.Kinoma Play is Not an App, It’s a PlatformBut this Kinoma Play “app,” isn’t really just an app. It’s not just a launcher or homescreen replacement, either. Included in the Kinoma Play download is a complete suite of applications including a music player, video player, photo viewer and more. It even has its own built-in app store which contains apps of its own.There are some interesting benefits to Kinoma’s platform. For example, everything, including the homescreen itself, works in landscape mode. When streaming content, a quick tap of the “Now Playing” icon from the homescreen makes it easy to get back to your play/pause controls.  You can see a live thumbnail of a video playing when you return to the dashboard to multi-task. The photo gallery downloads thumbnails faster and renders images in a higher resolution (and much quicker) than when you’re using the default Android photo gallery app. And with just a press of the finger, you can zoom deep into a photo to see more detail than you could before. And those are just a few of the new experiences Kinoma has to offer.A Dashboard Where Apps Work TogetherHowever, one of our favorite features is the Kinoma dashboard, which functions like a better notifications interface for Android devices. It does not replace Android’s notifications, though – that’s still accessible when Kinoma is running. This new dashboard offers a stream of information from your apps which you can scroll through both up and down, and within each app’s section, side to side. (See the video below for what this looks like).Kinoma’s apps are integrated to work with each other, too, which allows for interesting interactions – for example, the Twitter app can use Bing’s translation feature to translate tweets into other languages while the photos app can upload content to other third-party services. Not Just for AndroidWhat makes Kinoma more interesting than, say, a general homescreen replacement app, for instance, is the combination of Marvell’s experience in chipsets combined with Kinoma’s software. Marvell can now offer a complete solution – from silicon to applications – which is an alternative that may pique hardware manufactuers’ interests.According to Peter Hoddie, VP of the Kinoma Platform, Kinoma’s platform can power other types of devices beyond smartphones, including  tablets, printers, and even smart grid devices.Kinoma doesn’t see itself in competition with Android because it runs on top of the Android OS. Even if a handset maker chooses to make Kinoma the primary experience for their phone, it’s not displacing the OS. It’s augmenting it with new capabilities.We got to see Kinoma Play in action here at SXSW and we’re looking forward to trying it on our own Android devices in the near future. sarah perez Tags:#Android#apps#mobile#news The Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technology Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech …last_img read more

Film Study: Breaking Down the Play of Mason Rudolph

first_imgCMPATTYDSCMP%YPATDINT 143231203961.98.83132 Oklahoma State quarterback Mason Rudolph has had an exceptional season so far, but he hasn’t been completely perfect. The Cowboys are headed into the back half of a tough Big 12 schedule featuring an undefeated West Virginia at home and Kansas State, TCU and Oklahoma all on the road.Rudolph’s play will be one of the most important factors in all of these games, so in anticipation for an excellent back half of the season, let’s take a look at how Rudolph has performed thus far.Rudolph has shown the ability to make the tough throws time and time again. There have been plenty of plays where he fit the ball in a small window down the field:sl_postAnd he’s proven that he can effectively lead his receivers on the deep ball to the sideline:outsideWhere Rudolph has struggled is in the short and intermediate game. Oftentimes, especially on RPO (run-pass option) throws, Rudolph’s high throws result in either killing any possible YAC for the receiver:high4Or sailing over the receiver’s head:highHe has also, on occasion, missed some wide-open receivers downfield:miss_deepOSU head coach Mike Gundy said that Rudolph’s physical limitations contributed to his lack of intermediate accuracy. “He got hit in the Texas game and wasn’t very effective, in my opinion, on some throws in the next game because he just couldn’t really rotate his body a little bit,” Gundy said. “And that caused some issues with him.”There were rumors that he was banged up in a few early games as well.Hopefully Rudolph has used the bye week to fully recover, because once he cleans up his missed throws in the short game, he becomes an elite quarterback. Rudolph is seventh in the nation in passing yards per game and he’s one of only two players in the FBS who have over 200 pass attempts and only two interceptions. Rudolph’s stats aren’t eye-popping but they are efficient. The problem is that stats aren’t everything. If you took a person who just watched the game and another person who just looked at the stats and asked them both to tell you how Rudolph did, they would likely have very different answers.Ideally, his performance will soon start to match his stats, and when that happens, he will solidify himself as one of the best quarterbacks not only in the Big 12, but in the country as well.

Oklahoma State DE Vili Leveni Suffers Season Ending Injury

first_imgOklahoma State lost a key cog in one of the most productive units of the defense on Saturday, as Mike Gundy announced that redshirt junior defensive end Vili Leveni suffered a season-ending injury during the game against Kansas State.“We lost Vili today,” Gundy said after the game via The O’Colly. “Vili’s got an injury and he’s out for the year. We were kind of down one guy there.”Leveni was a key piece along the defensive line for the Pokes, as he provided a versatility that allowed OSU to plug him in both at defensive tackle and defensive end.There has yet to be an official report on the nature of the injury suffered, but it is worth noting that he also suffered a season ending injury last year that forced him to miss the entire football season.Glenn Spencer was bummed out about the whole thing.“He said, ‘I’m sorry, Coach. My bad,’” Spencer told the Tulsa World after the game. “Are you kidding me? I just hugged his neck and said, ‘You don’t have to be sorry about anything. You’re out there fighting, man, you’re a warrior.’ Yeah, he said that to me. I couldn’t believe that. That’s just how bad he wants to be out there.”This season, he racked up two sacks, and twelve tackles, and will now leave OSU dangerously thin at defensive end, with Jordan Brailford also still out after suffering an injury in the preseason.Cole Walterscheid and Jarrell Owens have taken over as starters, and with Leveni out, it’s likely that junior college transfer Tralund Webber and redshirt sophomore Trey Carter will see their playing time increased over the final weeks of the season.
