Ancajas wary of ‘unpredictable’ Sultan

first_imgJonas Sultan ‘stronger and faster than Jerwin,’ says trainer “We’ve been studying him. To me, he fights different styles in a fight. He had a different strategy against Casimero,” Ancajas told INQUIRER.net.Ancajas described Sultan as an “unpredictable” fighter and it’s also the reason why he doesn’t want to be overly confident.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkSPORTSTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crown“We don’t want to be too confident against him because he fights different styles,” he said.The 26-year-old Ancajas will defend his IBF super flyweight title for the fifth time against Sultan, who is a first-timer in a world title fight. But Ancajas thinks Sultan’s inexperience fighting at the highest level is also what makes him a dangerous opponent.“Sultan is hungry [to win his first world title] that’s why we can’t be complacent.”Ancajas is coming off a 10th round stoppage of Israel Gonzalez of Mexico early last month in Texas while Sultan became the mandatory challenger after beating compatriot Johnriel Casimero by unanimous decision in a title eliminator six months ago in Cebu.The all-Filipino world title fight—not seen since the great Pancho Villa beat Clever Sencio in 1925—was originally scheduled on April 14 in Las Vegas but was postponed after the event’s headliner Terence Crawford sustained a right hand injury during sparring.According to Ancajas’ trainer Joven Jimenez, the bout between his prized ward and Sultan will be reset on either May 26 or June 2 and could take place in Las Vegas or California.ADVERTISEMENT LATEST STORIES Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Scarlett Johansson, Sterling K.

2nd child may ding credit in China

first_img160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! China’s 28-year-old family planning policy limits most urban couples to just one child and allows some families in the countryside to have a second child if their first is a girl. Rising incomes mean many people can afford to break the rules and pay resulting fines. The government has tried to crack down on the trend by raising fines and, in some cases, trying to embarrass violators. In February, the eastern province of Zhejiang announced it planned to name and shame rich families who ignored the one-child policy by paying to have their second or third baby. China has about 1.3 billion people – 20 percent of the global total. The government has pledged to keep the population under 1.36 billion by 2010 and under 1.45 billion by 2020. By The Associated Press BEIJING – Urban Chinese who have more than one child will get a black mark on their credit record, the government said, in a scheme that appeared to target newly rich couples undeterred by fines from having extra children. “In the future, city residents’ family planning violations will be entered in the credit system of the People’s Bank of China,” said a notice posted late Thursday on the Web site of China’s National Population and Family Planning Commission. It didn’t give additional details about the scheme and it was not immediately clear whether the action might affect a person’s ability to conduct financial transactions. last_img read more

LAST BLAST OF SUMMER AS DONEGAL SET TO BASK IN 20C

first_imgCuldaff on a sunny dayIT was the summer that never was – rain-soaked weeks and barely a hint of sunshine.But Donegal is set to in glorious sunshine and temperatures touching 20C on Tuesday.And right now Wednesday is also looking good – with more warm temperatures as a high pressure over Ireland sucks warm air from contintental Europe. “The very best of the weather will be over the west, particularly in Donegal,” said BBC forecaster Angie Philips.“It’s a mini Indian summer.”Thursday and Friday will see a bit more cloud.And unfortunately forecasters believe a low pressure from the Atlantic will bring rain and wind to Donegal by Saturday afternoon. So if you’re due a day off, tomorrow might be a good time to take it.LAST BLAST OF SUMMER AS DONEGAL SET TO BASK IN 20C was last modified: September 7th, 2015 by John2Share 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:20cdonegalhotsunshineweatherlast_img read more

Brightcove Brings Condé Nast Digital to Boxee

first_imgThis Labor Day Boxee users will celebrate an increase in their mainstream web video content. Boxee just announced a partnership with video platform company Brightcove. The deal will potentially usher major players like CBS, Sony Music and Discovery onto Boxee’s web television entertainment platform. The first publishers to take advantage of the new arrangement include Condé Nast Digital (publishers of Wired and Epicurious) and children’s programming site Qubo. Said Boxee CEO Avner Ronen, “Boxee’s partnership with Brightcove represents an important step as we bring well-known, established content owners onto our platform. The Brightcove platform also gives us a go-to provider for our content partners who are looking for robust content delivery options.” Related Posts Tags:#Digital Lifestyle#web Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… With today’s Brightcove partnership, Boxee can point major networks towards a solution that allows them to increase control over their web video content and advertising. Brightcove offers customers the option to automatically serve video ads or they can choose to utilize a turnkey solution for customized ad placement. Meanwhile Boxee offers content owners a chance to move web video to television audiences. If Brightcove clients like Fox, Showtime Networks and A&E Entertainment welcome Boxee integration, other providers can’t help but take notice. This is important given Boxee’s battle for Hulu integration. While Boxee users have always loved the Hulu app, Hulu’s content partners requested removal from the Boxee community in early February. Boxee was forced to respond with a workaround solution. The new deal further legitimizes Boxee as a distributor of mainstream content.

Could IoT nanoswarms be coming soon?

first_imgSmall Business Cybersecurity Threats and How to… Related Posts Follow the Puck Long-time players of ’80s role-playing game Cyberpunk 2020 and the more recent Eclipse Phase are acutely aware of the potential uses and risks that come from swarms of intelligently-connected nano-scale machines. In science-fiction worlds commonly depicted in these games, as well as an entire genre of movies, books, and video games, nanoswarms are old hat.But, what if nanotechnology could deliver these incredible small, wirelessly-connected machines? How would they communicate? What practical purpose would they serve in a real-world scenario?As it turns out, there are scientists and researchers working developing this very type of technology. Devices that measure little more than 100-times the size of a single strand of human DNA that can navigate through, and transmit data from, your bloodstream.This makes it an incredible useful technology for medical research and care. Patients would benefit from having real-time analysis of their body down to the smallest level. Tests that today require exposure to radiation and other potentially harmful elements could one day be performed by nano devices positioned throughout the body.Nanoswarms could have many usesOther uses for the technology would include environmental data gathering, inventory management, and industrial monitoring.There’s even a dedicated, and well funded, government initiative for developing nanotechnology called the National Nanotechnology Initiative. This initiative, which has received over $22 billion in government funding since 2001, is tasked with providing the resources for the development and advancement of nanotechnologies as they make their way from concept to market.In order for these devices to work efficiently, they will need to be able to transmit data between them in a type of nano-scale Internet of Things.There are several different possibilities being explored by researchers, including a dedicated team at Georgia TechBecause they’re so small, their ability to send and receive data will be very limited. They wouldn’t be able to, for example, connect to your wi-fi network directly. However, they could pass information between each other to a type of nano-router that is slightly larger than its individual nodes and more equipped to process and transfer information to a gateway.Whatever the case will be, it’s going to be interesting to see the Internet of Things evolve over the next decade. As it continues to grow, its devices may well shrink.
