Unlikely hero leads Nets past Rockets

first_img(Field Level Media) Taurean Prince collected season highs of 27 points and 12 rebounds as the Brooklyn Nets overcame a 15-point deficit and beat the visiting Houston Rockets 123-116 last night. The Nets improved to 2-3 and rebounded nicely from Wednesday’s 10-point loss to Indiana by outscoring Houston 93-71 over the final 32:31.Caris LeVert added 25 points for the Nets, who shot 49.4 percent while not being led in scoring by Kyrie Irving for the first time this season. Irving finished with 22 points and 10 assists to post his first double-double as a Net.Prince posted his third career game with at least 20 points and 10 rebounds and shot 9 for 17 from the floor. The forward also made 6 of 10 3-pointers as the Nets shot 59.4 percent (19 of 32) from behind the arc. James Harden scored 36 points for the Rockets but struggled to get a shooting rhythm most of the night. After getting 59 in Wednesday’s wild 159-158 win at Washington, Harden shot 10 of 31 from the floor and missed 14 of 16 3-point attempts.Russell Westbrook flirted with a triple-double with 27 points, eight assists and seven rebounds but the Rockets shot 41.4 percent and were 12 of 48 (25 percent) on 3-pointers.Brooklyn held a 15-point lead late in the third but the Rockets trimmed it to 104-98 on two free throws by Harden with 5:32 remaining. Irving’s 3-pointer with 4:53 remaining pushed the lead to 109-98 but Houston was within 109-103 on Harden’s uncontested dunk with 4:10 to go. The Nets sealed it when Irving connected with Prince, who hit an open 3-pointer from the left wing for a 114-106 lead with two minutes to go. Irving made it 117-108 with a step-back 3-pointer from the right corner with 55.9 seconds remaining.Harden scored 11 points as the Rockets forced 10 turnovers and took a 33-24 lead after the first quarter. The Rockets ended the quarter with an impressive 18-1 run over the last 4:29 and forced Irving into five turnovers.Houston expanded its lead to 45-30 on a jumper by Danuel House Jr. with 8:21 remaining in the first half but the Nets ended the half with a 31-14 run to take a 61-59 lead into intermission. Westbrook’s steal of Brooklyn’s inbounds pass and subsequent dunk forged a 68-68 tie with 8:16 remaining in the third quarter. The Nets countered with a 17-5 run and took an 85-73 lead on Prince’s layup with 3:48 remaining in the period and carried a 95-83 lead into the fourth.last_img read more

Eight Companies With the Potential to Disrupt the Media

first_imgOf all the presenters, Yowie has the potential for the largest scale. It also is perhaps the one least suited to the news industry. What Yowie tries to do is bridge the “last mile” of social connections between media figures (bands, politicians, actors or in this instance. It is a video queue that can be hosted and then brings commenters face-to-face with the media subject. Whereas most of the entrepreneurs at Disruptathon were services or features that can be used by publishers, NearSay kind of IS a publisher. It provides a platform for local news that is scalable and profitable. In terms of a pure business model, it has one of the purest visions of how to tackle hyperlocal news that has been dreamt up. It provides a way to local contributors to have a voice, aggregates local data and brings local brands and merchants to the table for discussion and awareness. I cannot see NearSay being successful in small town America, but it will work very well within large cities and has 125,000 users in Manhattan. Odio and his team have created a system that understands implicit social connections within an application. It then tries to tie together related readers through their “interest graph” based on the data it obtains from the user. From a technical perspective, Socialize was ahead of the field at Disruptathon. What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … I was a touch surprised to see my friends from Publish2 included in this list of entrepreneurs since they have been around for a while and have had significant traction within the news industry. Publish2 is attempting to recreate the traditional newswire by making content easily sharable among disparate media partners with incompatible content management systems. Content is shared and virtualized in the cloud and can be picked up by any partner and formatted directly for its specific CMS. Pete Erickson is trying to become the go-to man that brings innovators and industries together. Through his Disruptathon series, he travels North America, putting on one-day events where entrepreneurs compete in front of industry leaders to present disruptive ideas. The prizes are not large, but the opportunity for brand awareness in front of industry leaders can be invaluable.Disruptathon came to the Washington D.C. area on Thursday evening with eight entrepreneurs in tow to make their pitches at USA Today headquarters in McLean, Va. When it comes to disruption, the news industry was hit hard by lack of innovation and forward digital thinking. As one presenter put it: “the foundation for the news business has shifted.” Take a look at the eight startups trying to change the way we consume, produce or interact with the news.The eight startups at Disruptathon Media were: ProConIt, Stry, NearSay, Yowie, Socialize, Publish2, OneNews and WatchParty. Each had a unique idea that was potentially disruptive … some more than others.Socialize was proclaimed the winner by the crowd, which voted on special iPod Touches that were handed out to the audience and returned to tabulate the final results. Socialize provides websites with a software developer kit (SDK) intended to “quantify the interest graph.” Of the eight companies that took the stage, Socialize was the company with the clearest technological vision and most potential to be integrated on a large scale within media apps. CEO Daniel R. Odio described it as “unleashing the community that is hiding in your app.”Here are the eight entrants, in my view of potential disruption: WatchParty is an interesting platform that can give marketers, advertisers and media companies valuable analytics into how people react to television on a moment to moment basis. The interface is nothing special … it is essentially a chat room for TV designed to bring people together to discuss and react to shows. Yet, the data that their reactions provide can be a valuable resource. “Hyper-topical.” Stry aims to transform the newswire with in-depth topical stories. “A band of reporters in pursuit of storytelling.” Its founder, Dan Oshinsky, will be a fellow at the Donald W. Reynolds Journalism Institute at the University of Missouri to study news-centric startups and impart lessons in being an entrepreneur. Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfacescenter_img Outside of Socialize, ProConIt was the darling of Disruptathon Media. It is a system designed to change how readers comment and engage with topics. A “ProCon” is an embeddable debate platform that can be used as a social evaluation tool that provides a visual of the discourse of a conversation in Pros or Cons. It has the potential to be an interesting add-on to topics presented in the media. dan rowinski Related Posts Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement Tags:#mobile#New Media#news#Publishing Services#Real World#web Think of CNN iReport where citizen journalists can bring send pictures and video into the news organization to be used for broadcast or on the site. OneNews is a platform that can be integrated into local news sites that do not already have their own version of iReport set up and can help mobilize contributors to the scene of breaking news.

Water mismanagement triggered ecological disaster in Australian rivers, panel concludes

first_img Water mismanagement triggered ecological disaster in Australian rivers, panel concludes Dead fish floating in the Darling River near Menindee, Australia, earlier this month. Even before a recent massive fish die-off put Australia’s Murray-Darling Basin in the headlines worldwide, scientists had been warning that mismanagement of the region’s scarce water was setting the stage for an environmental disaster.They were right, a report released today by a special government commission concludes. The yearlong inquiry found that too much water is being taken out of the river network for irrigation and household use.The Murray-Darling system comprises more than 100 named waterways that drain 1 million square kilometers in the country’s arid southeast. Heavy irrigation has left the lower reaches of the rivers running at about a third of historical levels and sometimes completely dry. Occasionally, as over the past 6 weeks, the flow is too low to flush nutrients from agricultural runoff through the system, leading to algal blooms and subsequent fish kills.Sign up for our daily newsletterGet more great content like this delivered right to you!Country *AfghanistanAland IslandsAlbaniaAlgeriaAndorraAngolaAnguillaAntarcticaAntigua and BarbudaArgentinaArmeniaArubaAustraliaAustriaAzerbaijanBahamasBahrainBangladeshBarbadosBelarusBelgiumBelizeBeninBermudaBhutanBolivia, Plurinational State ofBonaire, Sint Eustatius and SabaBosnia and HerzegovinaBotswanaBouvet IslandBrazilBritish Indian Ocean TerritoryBrunei DarussalamBulgariaBurkina FasoBurundiCambodiaCameroonCanadaCape VerdeCayman IslandsCentral African RepublicChadChileChinaChristmas IslandCocos (Keeling) IslandsColombiaComorosCongoCongo, The Democratic Republic of theCook IslandsCosta RicaCote D’IvoireCroatiaCubaCuraçaoCyprusCzech RepublicDenmarkDjiboutiDominicaDominican RepublicEcuadorEgyptEl SalvadorEquatorial GuineaEritreaEstoniaEthiopiaFalkland Islands (Malvinas)Faroe IslandsFijiFinlandFranceFrench GuianaFrench PolynesiaFrench Southern TerritoriesGabonGambiaGeorgiaGermanyGhanaGibraltarGreeceGreenlandGrenadaGuadeloupeGuatemalaGuernseyGuineaGuinea-BissauGuyanaHaitiHeard Island and Mcdonald IslandsHoly See (Vatican City State)HondurasHong KongHungaryIcelandIndiaIndonesiaIran, Islamic Republic ofIraqIrelandIsle of ManIsraelItalyJamaicaJapanJerseyJordanKazakhstanKenyaKiribatiKorea, Democratic People’s Republic ofKorea, Republic ofKuwaitKyrgyzstanLao People’s Democratic RepublicLatviaLebanonLesothoLiberiaLibyan Arab JamahiriyaLiechtensteinLithuaniaLuxembourgMacaoMacedonia, The Former Yugoslav Republic ofMadagascarMalawiMalaysiaMaldivesMaliMaltaMartiniqueMauritaniaMauritiusMayotteMexicoMoldova, Republic ofMonacoMongoliaMontenegroMontserratMoroccoMozambiqueMyanmarNamibiaNauruNepalNetherlandsNew CaledoniaNew ZealandNicaraguaNigerNigeriaNiueNorfolk IslandNorwayOmanPakistanPalestinianPanamaPapua New GuineaParaguayPeruPhilippinesPitcairnPolandPortugalQatarReunionRomaniaRussian FederationRWANDASaint Barthélemy Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da CunhaSaint Kitts and NevisSaint LuciaSaint Martin (French part)Saint Pierre and MiquelonSaint Vincent and the GrenadinesSamoaSan MarinoSao Tome and PrincipeSaudi ArabiaSenegalSerbiaSeychellesSierra LeoneSingaporeSint Maarten (Dutch part)SlovakiaSloveniaSolomon IslandsSomaliaSouth AfricaSouth Georgia and the South Sandwich IslandsSouth SudanSpainSri LankaSudanSurinameSvalbard and Jan MayenSwazilandSwedenSwitzerlandSyrian Arab RepublicTaiwanTajikistanTanzania, United Republic ofThailandTimor-LesteTogoTokelauTongaTrinidad and TobagoTunisiaTurkeyTurkmenistanTurks and Caicos IslandsTuvaluUgandaUkraineUnited Arab EmiratesUnited KingdomUnited StatesUruguayUzbekistanVanuatuVenezuela, Bolivarian Republic ofVietnamVirgin Islands, BritishWallis and FutunaWestern SaharaYemenZambiaZimbabweI also wish to receive emails from AAAS/Science and Science advertisers, including information on products, services and special offers which may include but are not limited to news, careers information & upcoming events.Required fields are included by an asterisk(*) Jeremy Buckingham’s Office center_img By Dennis NormileJan. 31, 2019 , 1:15 PM A year ago, the state of South Australia—which hosts a relatively short stretch of the Murray River including its mouth on the Southern Ocean—empaneled a royal commission to address a long list of questions about the effectiveness of the 2007 Water Act and the 2012 Basin Plan, both created to preserve the ecology of the river system. The report contends that implementation of the Basin Plan has lost sight of the Water Act’s original intent, which was to “ensure the return to environmentally sustainable levels of extraction for water resources that are overallocated or overused.” That clear objective has “morphed into a misleading and dangerous misunderstanding” that there should be a balance among economic, environmental, and social considerations, the panel says.The commission’s 44 recommendations include making new assessments of how much water must be left in the rivers to sustain the basin ecology, studying the impacts of climate change, increasing decision-making transparency, and purchasing additional water for the rivers through buybacks from farmers. Although the report is 750 pages long, some of its findings are amusingly terse. To the question whether the current implementation of the Basin Plan is “likely to achieve the objects and purposes of the [2007] Act,” the commission simply answered: “No. See entire report.”“The Royal Commission has provided an outstanding service to the nation,” says Quentin Grafton, an economist specializing in water issues at Australian National University in Canberra. But the fate of the recommendations remains to be seen. Implementation of some will require coordination between other Murray-Darling basin states—New South Wales, Victoria, the Australian Capital Territory, and Queensland—and the federal government, as well as revisions to both the Water Act and the Basin Plan that would likely meet with fierce resistance from farmers. But, “If just half of these recommendations could be followed, a much better future for the basin is likely to ensue,” says Caroline Sullivan, an environmental economist at Southern Cross University in Lismore, Australia.last_img read more

MS Dhoni a good helping hand for Virat Kohli: David Warner to India Today

first_imgDavid Warner said Mahendra Singh Dhoni has been a good helping hand for Virat Kohli, the fiery India captain.”MS Dhoni brought a sense of calmness to his captaincy. He did a great job as captain and he is still doing a great job, nurturing Virat and that is a great thing to do for a former captain,” Warner told India Today’s Boria Majumdar. “He is nurturing Virat and that is a good thing to do for both men.”WATCH FULL VIDEOHowever, Warner said Kohli’s real challenge would come when he goes through a lean patch as captain. After taking over as full-time captain of the limited-overs teams, Kohli has led India to series wins over England, West Indies and Sri Lanka. (Pressure will be on Kuldeep Yadav to perform, not me: David Warner to India Today)Kohli also led India to the final of the Champions Trophy and the hosts currently lead Australia 2-0 in the ongoing ODI series . He has also had plenty of success as Test captain, winning 19 of 29 matches in nearly three years.Reuters Photo”Virat has not had a lot of non-success as captain but the real challenge comes when you start losing games,” Warner said.”The real test comes when you start losing some games. We are here for another three matches to go and hopefully we can turn that around and maybe we will see a different captain,” he said.Warner said Australia were disappointed to lose the Kolkata ODI after restricting a powerful Indian batting line-up to 252 despite a superlative 92 from Kohli and a fluent 55 from Ajinkya Rahane.advertisementIn energy-sapping conditions at the Eden Gardens, Australia did well to pull things back before losing their way with the bat for the second time this week.”We always talked about how if you restrict the Indian team to under 300 in their conditions, you are going a long way to winning the game. We did not get that key partnership in the middle.”The ball was swinging and it was challenging conditions. Bhuvi and Bumrah bowled brilliantly upfront. We lost two early wickets, established a partnership in the middle but did not have that one batsman going on to get a big score,” Warner said, summing up the 50-run defeat.last_img read more
