Where does Alfonzo McKinnie rank among Warriors’ greatest finds?

first_imgEleven games does not an NBA career make. And no one believes the crazy launch angle on Alfonzo McKinnie’s career path is sustainable.But if he becomes nothing more than what he is today, a trusted part of coach Steve Kerr’s rotation, the Warriors have struck gold. Again.We are tempted to believe the 6-foot-8 McKinnie could some day find himself high among a long list of under-the-radar discoveries in Warriors history (list below). How did we get here?Three years ago, he was …last_img

Ohio’s Crop Progress — Timely Rains Improve Conditions

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Sporadic rainfall was conducive for corn growth and pasture rejuvenation, according to Cheryl Turner, Ohio State Statistician with the USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service. There were 5 days suitable for fieldwork for the week ending June 18th.Most rains were not excessive and soil moisture levels remained steady. Some parts of the state received over 3 inches of rain where others received none. Warm wet conditions arrived to give recently emerged crops and oats a boost. The temperatures also helped ripen wheat as harvest got underway. Despite rains, growers had opportunities between storms to continue side dressing corn and spraying weeds. Soybean planting and replanting was in its final stages and some hay was cut.Click here to read the full report.last_img read more

Ohio Ag Weather and Forecast, February 1, 2019

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Snow tries to move away off to the east through the day today, and in its wake we should start to see some moderating temps. Light snow this morning will bring an additional coating to an inch or two. Temps are going to be on the rise through the day today. We may not get much above normal, but we should be significantly warmer than what we saw over the past few days.That warm air continues to build through the weekend and into early next week. Saturday, we see a few more clouds in the north but sun in the south. Then Sunday partly sunny skies should be in over the entire state. The warmest air arrives for Monday with temps in the 50s to near 60. However, clouds will be building, and we can’t rule out a few scattered showers after noon and toward evening. Moisture totals there will be limited to a few hundredths or a tenth, with coverage at 30%.Additional rain sweeps across the state for Tuesday late afternoon through Thursday morning. We are raising our overall rain potential for the event to .5”-1” combined through the entire 2 to 2.5 day period. There can be some changeover to snow in northern areas overnight Tuesday night into Wednesday morning, but then we go back basically to all rain through the balance of Wednesday. We should see 90% coverage out of this precipitation event. The map at right is a look at the potential set up Wednesday night.Colder air comes in behind the system for Thursday midday and afternoon. We can see some snow in northern areas with little to minor accumulations, and then a little more rain south. Clearing begins at midday Thursday and should yield increasing amounts of afternoon sunshine. Colder air takes temps to below normal levels. WE continue with partly sunny but cold condition for next Friday through the following weekend.The extended period still has 2 threats of precipitation. We are toning down the action for the 11th, with only a smaller chance of light snow and minor accumulations. However, the moisture shifts farther back in the period to our second system around valentine’s day through the 15th. Moisture there looks more impressive, and we will allow for either rain or snow. Temperatures look prone to big swings over the next 2 weeks.last_img read more

New Record: US Internet Users Watched 21.4 Billion Videos in July

first_imgfrederic lardinois July turned out to be the biggest month for watching Internet video yet. According to comScore, Internet users in the US watched 21.4 billion videos in July, up 88% from last year. Google’s YouTube streamed 9 billion of these videos, followed by video sites from Viacom and Microsoft. In terms of unique users, YouTube gets only twice as many visitors as Microsoft’s video sites. On YouTube, however, people watched an average of 74 videos in July, while they watched only around 10 videos on Microsoft’s sites and 19 on Viacom’s online video properties.Online video has come a long way since the days of postage stamp-sized clips in a RealPlayer embed. In July, the average online video viewer watched 8.3 hours of video, up from 7.6 hours in June. Overall, 81% of the US Internet audience watched online video last month.In total, the average viewer watched about 135 video clips. While full-length shows are becoming more popular, it is still important to note that the average video is only 3.7 minutes long. Hulu, which focuses on full-length TV shows, also recorded its best month yet, with 457 million views.Another Record-Breaking MonthJune, according to comScore, already broke most records, but at that time, the company credited the surge to the large number of high-profile events (including the death of Michael Jackson and the elections in Iran). ComScore argues that TV viewers are turning to the Internet right now because most of the shows on TV are currently on summer hiatus. While this probably plays some role in this current growth in interest in online video, we would also argue that a lot of viewers are simply changing their viewing habits and have moved away from watching shows on traditional TV and cable networks. Instead, they are watching popular clips on YouTube and full-length shows on Hulu.

Microsoft, Split Yourself Up—Or Your Enterprise Customers Are Going To Walk

first_imgTags:#BYOD#Microsoft#smartphones#Windows With the announced acquisition of Nokia’s mobile devices unit for $7.2 billion, Microsoft is positively plowing its way to becoming the devices and services company it feels it must become in order to survive.But as it stands right now, there seems to be very little chance that Microsoft will survive in anything close to its present state. Microsoft is either beginning a journey that will see it split into at least two companies, or risking the alienation of its existing enterprise and smaller-business customers.The inclusion of Nokia’s handset business into Microsoft makes sense when looked at from a consumer perspective. After all, both Apple and Google are already playing on variations of the same theme: IT companies that provide end-to-end services that are owned up and down the stack. Apple and Google own the software ecosystems and either own the hardware or, in Google’s case, licenses the software stack to hardware vendors so that Android phones are compatible enough to run Android apps.Microsoft, which has long been the behemoth horizontal company the provided the operating system layer and some really valuable parts of the application layer to all sectors—consumers to enterprise—will not be expected to pivot 90 degrees to become a more vertically oriented end-to-end vendor.Much has been said about Microsoft’s ability to make this pivot and become the third part of such a consumer-facing triad, particularly given the rampant non-success of Windows Phone devices in the market to date. But let’s assume, for a moment, that Microsoft can pull it off, and a more focused Nokia-Microsoft synergy actually starts to gain traction in the marketplace.Here’s my question: where does that leave enterprise customers?Bring Our Own What?The message to enterprise customers and channel partners to date has been pretty straightforward: let’s move everything to the cloud. Running apps on Windows server? Move it to the Windows Azure cloud. Building docs and spreadsheets with Office? Migrate yourself right over to Office 365.From Microsoft’s point of view, getting business customers aligned to the cloud is a better option. There’s money to be made and a cloud-services architecture fits much more neatly with the end-to-end business model they are shooting for than client-server architecture.There are two big problems with that line of thinking. First, there are a lot of enterprises that are not entirely convinced that cloud is the way to go for them, even private clouds. Second—and even more troublesome—there are a lot of businesses who have spent years and millions of dollars building an IT support infrastructure that is centered around the client-server model. Asking them to stand by while Microsoft tries to pivot and hopefully does not leave them hanging for support or tries to shove unneeded solutions down their throat is a huge risk for Microsoft to take.Recall, for a moment, how much resistance app developers and device makers are seeing to implement bring-your-own-device policies now. And that’s with mature software and devices that are selling like hotcakes. Microsoft will have to innovate like crazy to push past the business inertia that’s holding BYOD as a safe business process back.The push to cloud services is especially ironic. For the past couple of years, Microsoft’s marketing team has had loads of fun taking potshots at Google Docs, deriding it in ads as Google’s attempt to “beta test” productivity services. Now, Microsoft is asking companies to forget all those points about security, stability and regulation compliance and trust Office 365 in the cloud anyway.Microsoft is betting all of its future that enterprise customers will go along with these changes like willing sheep. That characterization is wildly inaccurate: businesses large and small demonstrated through their refusal to abandon Windows XP that just because Microsoft says something is cool and useful, doesn’t always make it so.Windows 8 is even more of a mental hurdle, because anyone with half a brain can see this is Windows for devices and no one gets real work done on devices.So, in all of that, where is the attraction for enterprises to stick with Microsoft?Cleaving Microsoft ApartI am not alone in this line of thinking. Since the Labor Day announcement of the Nokia buy, there have been a lot of rumors from people in and outside of Microsoft that foresee a day coming soon when Microsoft will have to split itself in two.One company will carry the Devices group that includes the recently picked-up Nokia, as well as other device services like Xbox. Call this the “digital lifestyles” company.The other company will be the “enterprise” company, which will hold the Windows Azure, Windows, Office and SharePoint businesses and anything else that faces business users.Breaking up Microsoft into two entities will leave the enterprise company free to do what should have been going on all along: innovate for the business users, not the device users. Besides enabling such innovation, such a company would also ease the minds of IT managers who are now wondering how they will have to adapt to Microsoft’s continuing allegiance to devices and services.Or not.Because there are a lot of services companies out there, and by pivoting to become another such service vendor, Microsoft has thrown the door wide open for competitors to step in and show nervous enterprise customers the services they have been doing all along, sometimes at a better price and with better results.If Microsoft does not do something along these lines to assure enterprise customers it has their best interests at heart, then it will have effectively abandoned them to chase a dream many businesses are not yet ready to follow.

Comedian Mike Ward says Hells Angels protected him after joke about missing

first_imgMONTREAL — The Hells Angels are “very good guys,” Quebec comedian Mike Ward says during the latest episode of a popular podcast hosted by American media star Joe Rogan.So good, in fact, that the biker gang “protected” Ward after outraged Quebecers threatened to kill him over a joke about a missing girl, the comedian told Rogan.“The only corporate gigs I’d ever do were shows for military, police officers or the Hells Angels,” Ward said on the profanity-laced show, which was uploaded Wednesday and already has more than 308,000 views on YouTube alone.“And then I realized,” Ward continued, “that when you talk to a group of cops or a group of Hells Angels — they’re the same guys. They have the same mentality.”Rogan replied, “The only difference is that you can call the cops — they’ll come help you. The Hells Angels won’t do (anything.)”Not true, Ward said.Ward, whose dark and abrasive style has landed him in trouble in his home province, told Rogan that in 2008 he joked about the disappearance of Cedrika Provencher — a nine-year-old girl who had vanished a year before — and Quebec’s revenue agency.Revenue Quebec had frozen Ward’s bank accounts, and Ward shared with Rogan the joke he told at a festival gala about the relentless tax collectors: “If you owe them eight dollars, they’re going to kidnap your little kids. They are the ones who have (Cedrika)!”Three weeks later, Ward said, a popular Quebec television host called Cedrika Provencher’s grandfather live on air and informed him that Ward had made a joke at his granddaughter’s expense.Before long, Ward’s manager was receiving threatening messages. “My manager calls me, and he’s like: ‘There are people who are going to kill you,’ ” Ward told Rogan.Ward said he looked out his window one day and saw people lined up across the street from his home.He said he learned two or three years later that the Hells Angels had stationed people at each end of his street to keep an eye on protesters. “They had told their dudes … to watch the people who want to kill Mike Ward,” he said. He marvelled, “the Hells Angels protected me.”Rogan mused that “a lot of Hells Angels are probably good guys.”Ward replied, “It’s the same with the Mafia guys. If you don’t owe them money, they are good guys.”The Hells Angels are considered an outlaw motorcycle gang by federal and provincial authorities. A war between the Quebec branch of the Hells Angels and the rival Rock Machine during the 1990s and early 2000s left more than 150 people dead, including an 11-year-old boy.Ward is no stranger to controversy.He was fined $42,000 by Quebec’s Human Rights Tribunal in 2016 for making a joke considered in poor taste about a disabled boy.Ward contested the decision, and the matter is still before the courts. He told Rogan the entire legal ordeal is likely to cost him about $200,000.“I’m going to be 97 years old by the time I get the verdict,” he joked.Giuseppe Valiante, The Canadian Presslast_img read more
