We had a plan to come in and shoot for 48.5. So, for him to run 48.2 shows he’s ahead of schedule.”In the field events, Johnathan Osifuye (Woodbury, Minn.) was just shy of his personal best in the triple jump with a fifth-place jump of 48-0.5.

To come off a break and to have a big meet like Nebraska be your first meet back can be overwhelming, but the team showed great maturity in handling that pressure.”Mary Young (Urbandale, Iowa) and Rai Ahmed-Green (Irvine, Calif.) led the women’s team with a pair of first-place finishes.

She had some great practices this week, so it was great to see her hard work pay off.”In addition to their individual successes, Young and Ahmed-Green teamed up to lead off the Bulldogs’ second-place 4×400-meter relay that finished in 3:50.61, the seventh-fastest time in school history.

Expert Labs: Can an Outside Incubator Turn Government Tech-Savvy?

first_imgLong-time blogger and tech executive Anil Dash announced today at the Web 2.0 Expo New York that he’s leaving publishing software company SixApart and will head a new technology incubator called Expert Labs. Expert Labs will be dedicated to connecting technology innovators ready to build tools with government officials who can put those tools to use in the public interest. It’s a vision that differs from what some other technologists are focused on with regards to the government.Dash is best known as a blogger for his articles like this 2007 explanation of LOLCat grammatical structure and this 2009 explanation of the real-time web. Can the man who’s explained so much to the rest of us help the US government adopt new online technology? That’s quite a task. The organization’s website reads in part as follows:Expert Labs is non-profit and non-partisan but we’re moving with the speed and passion of true believers. We’re providing funding and resources to help create some of the coolest new technology on the web, and as part of the largest general scientific society in the world, we have access to the smartest minds around. Put those together with your help, and we’ll be making our country better in no time.Expert Labs will be a part of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) and funded by the MacArthur Foundation, Caroline McCarthy reports at Cnet.Dash wrote this Summer that “I think the most promising new startup of 2009 is one of the least likely: The executive branch of the federal government of the United States.” We’ve been far more critical here at ReadWriteWeb of the Obama Administration’s efforts. The much anticipated Data.gov, for example, was so unexciting in its implementation that watchdog group the Sunlight Foundation launched a competitor to it.The web changes very fast and government tends to change very, very slowly.Dash’s Vision Appears Different From Tim O’Reilly’sThe organization will aim to facilitate production of applications to serve government. Those apps will be cloud-based. This is a different kind of approach, I’d say, than the one that Web 2.0 Expo founder Tim O’Reilly is taking in trying to build a “government as a platform.” Expert Labs says it has “a mandate to help policy makers in the U.S. Federal Government tap into the expertise of their fellow citizens.”O’Reilly, on the other hand, advocates a “government as platform” that would supply raw digital data and other forms of support for private sector innovators to build on top of. “How do you think like a platform provider?” O’Reilly asked in an interview with us this Summer.“We’ve moved our government from a lean vehicle for collective action, and over the last 200 years it has become so strong that it’s now 40% of GDP. I want to go back to the original vision of the role of government: a convener of things that we as individuals and companies can’t do alone. Standard setting, pilot programs; government providing enabling technologies for citizens to serve themselves.”Dash’s incubator will help technologists help the government; O’Reilly’s vision is to help the government help technologists. These two visions may be complimentary, but they certainly seem different. Which will be more effective at changing the world? Government can be a slow enough mover that it’s hard to say. Both are thought provoking, but neither vision will be easy to make real.Photo graciously licensed as Creative Commons by Joi Ito. marshall kirkpatrick A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Tags:#news#politics#web center_img Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Related Posts Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic…last_img read more

McGregor backers: Mayweather fight is no sideshow

first_imgEthel Booba on hotel’s clarification that ‘kikiam’ is ‘chicken sausage’: ‘Kung di pa pansinin, baka isipin nila ok lang’ “Keep doubting us. We love it,” McGregor’s agent, Audie Attar, said in an interview Friday with Sports News Television. “The human element of sport is that anything can happen.”Mayweather, who retired in 2015 after winning all his 49 professional fights as a boxer, is back in training at age 40 after accepting an offer he couldn’t refuse from the mixed martial arts fighter who has never had a pro boxing fight.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSSEA Games: Biñan football stadium stands out in preparedness, completionSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutout“These are two world-class combat sport athletes,” Attar said. “Yes they come from different disciplines. Yes there are going to be different rules, so it’s going to be confined within those set of rules and we understand that. But I don’t think you can take away from (McGregor’s) ability, his power, his reach, his … all these different attributes that I think he will bring to the table.”Las Vegas oddsmakers immediately made Mayweather an 11-1 favorite when the fight — scheduled for 12 rounds in Las Vegas at 154 pounds in a boxing ring and under boxing rules — was announced.

Although he hasn’t boxed professionally, McGregor did box while growing up and is known for his striking expertise.“Floyd’s been an amazing tactician in term of his quickness, his ability to get in there, his ability to elude punches,” Attar said. “But I think on Aug. 26, I’m bullish on the idea that that’s going to change and he is going to meet someone that is going to have the physical attributes that will potentially catch him and be that one, 49-1.”Attar said Mayweather was arguably the greatest boxer of all time, “but there’s some things that he hasn’t faced before and Conor brings those … unique differentiation attributes and strategies.“Both of their styles will cause them to engage differently than Floyd’s other competitors before Conor. And in my opinion, that’s going to yield a different result.“I’m more confident on the idea that we’re gonna be that one. 49 and one.”ADVERTISEMENT LATEST STORIES World’s 50 Best Restaurants launches new drinking and dining guide Pinoy windsurfers bag gold in RS: One World Championships in Vietnam Heart Evangelista admits she’s pregnant… with chickencenter_img Robredo: True leaders perform well despite having ‘uninspiring’ boss PLAY LIST 02:49Robredo: True leaders perform well despite having ‘uninspiring’ boss02:42PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games01:44Philippines marks anniversary of massacre with calls for justice01:19Fire erupts in Barangay Tatalon in Quezon City01:07Trump talks impeachment while meeting NCAA athletes02:49World-class track facilities installed at NCC for SEA Games FILE – In this Nov. 11, 2016, file photo, Conor McGregor stands on a scale during the weigh-in event for his fight against Eddie Alvarez in UFC 205 mixed martial arts at Madison Square Garden in New York.
