Sanders’ career day

first_img “But it’s not over. We’ve got a long way to go.’ Facing a team that won the West despite an 82-80 record, the Cardinals who led the majors with 100 wins opened an 8-0 cushion in the fifth inning against Peavy. He pitched with an injury that worsened in the third and was taken to a hospital after lasting only 4 1/3 innings. An MRI showed one broken rib on his right side and the possibility of a second break. A Padres spokesman said the injury would take four to six weeks to heal. “He felt something on his right side,’ manager Bruce Bochy said. “He said he felt it during the course of the game.’ Peavy thinks he might have bruised his ribs during a celebratory scrum on the field after the Padres clinched the NL West on Wednesday. He said the injury was probably worsened when he caught a spike on the rubber on a wild pitch in the third that didn’t even make it to the dirt. “I thought I had bruised ribs. I never imagined it would be this,’ Peavy said. “It’s weird. It’s been a little bothersome but it was nothing we thought would get in my way. “I knew it was pretty bad when I came out of the game.’ Even without Peavy, the pesky Padres weren’t done. They scored once in the seventh, added another run in the eighth and then got right back into it in the ninth. San Diego scored three times and loaded the bases with two outs before closer Jason Isringhausen struck out Ramon Hernandez. “We’re playing a tough team,’ Sanders said. “As you can see, they fought to the last out.’ Mark Mulder will oppose San Diego’s Pedro Astacio on Thursday in Game 2 of the best-of-five series. Jim Edmonds helped St. Louis with a home run, double and single. Eric Young had a pinch-hit homer in the eighth for San Diego and an RBI groundout in the ninth. Manager Tony La Russa’s team won for the fifth time in six NLDS openers. That includes a victory in 1996 when the Cardinals swept the Padres. The 37-year-old Sanders was on pace for the first 30-homer, 30-steal season of his career before missing 54 games after breaking his right leg in an outfield collision with Edmonds in mid-July. Sanders rediscovered his stroke in the final week of the regular season, driving in 10 runs in the last six games and homering three times in the final four. Against Peavy, Sanders had both of the key hits. His two-run single off the glove of diving first baseman Mark Sweeney put the Cardinals ahead 4-0 in the third, and his grand slam into the left-field seats on a 3-0 fastball chased Peavy in the fifth. Carpenter was 21-5 with a 2.83 ERA, the ace the Cardinals lacked in the playoffs last fall when they were swept in the World Series by the Red Sox. But he struggled in the final month, with a 9.14 ERA in his final four outings, and said he lost motivation after the Cardinals clinched the Central with two weeks to spare. “It feels nice to get zeros and get a win,’ Carpenter said. “You go out there to execute pitches and give your team a chance to win and I was able to do it all day.’ The Padres saw the dominant Carpenter again. He allowed only three singles while benefiting from three double plays from the team that led the majors. “Our key is to make him throw pitches and get him out of there,’ San Diego’s Ryan Klesko said. “He pitched himself out of a couple of jams.’ Carpenter’s biggest battle was with the weather. It was an unseasonably warm 84 degrees at game time and 86 when he experienced cramping in his right hand while warming up before the seventh. The Cardinals said dehydration caused the problem and took him out as a precaution. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

LOUIS — Reggie Sanders, Chris Carpenter and the St. Louis Cardinals looked every bit like the best team in baseball even with a shaky ending. San Diego played as poorly as its record suggests for most of the day. And now, with ace pitcher Jake Peavy out for the postseason with a broken rib, the Padres might be overmatched. center_img Sanders hit a grand slam and set an NL division series record with six RBIs, Carpenter pitched six scoreless innings before being pulled as a precaution and the Cardinals built a big lead and held off the Padres 8-5 Tuesday in Game 1. “It’s huge,’ Sanders said. “Let alone getting one RBI in a week, you get six in one day and especially under postseason pressure.

Survey: 85% of Employees Under 25 Use Personal E-Mail Accounts for Work

first_imgTags:#enterprise#Trends 3 Areas of Your Business that Need Tech Now Cognitive Automation is the Immediate Future of… This week the email management company Mimecast released the results of a survey of more than 2,400 corporate email users. The survey found that 85% of what Mimecast dubs “Generation Gmail” – employees 25 years old and younger – have used personal email accounts to send work-related documents.The main reason these workers turn to personal email seems to be the attachment size limits of their official work email accounts. As we’ve reported, Palo Alto Networks found that Web-based file sharing such as Megaupload is also very popular in the workplace.I ran into this frequently when I worked in IT. Google can provide much larger attachment sizes and mailbox sizes than most enterprise IT departments can. It’s not mentioned in the data that Mimecast released, but I also noticed that many employees used personal accounts for work because they didn’t have offsite access to their company email. At most places I’ve worked VPN access is not granted to all employees. But many users want to correspond with work contacts when outside of the office.Mimecast emphasizes that using personal email accounts puts corporate information and intellectual property at risk because it exists outside of IT’s control. However, Chief Scientist Nathaniel Borenstein – one of the creators of the MIME protocol – sympathizes with the rule breakers. “The results show that workers frustrated with corporate restrictions are using personal email accounts in order to maintain productivity,” he says.What can organizations do to reduce the bleeding? I would suggest:Up the limits of email attachments either by increasing the capacity of on-premise email systems or by adopting cloud email.Implement an official external file sharing system such as those offered by companies like Box, Huddle and Memeo. One place I worked had a company FTP site for sharing large attachments, but it was too difficult for most users.Give most employees access to offsite email.The attempts to curb the use of personal email or third-party file sharing sites will prove futile when employees have a decent alternative. klint finleycenter_img Massive Non-Desk Workforce is an Opportunity fo… Related Posts IT + Project Management: A Love Affairlast_img read more

iPad or Smartphone: Which Has Impacted Your Life More?

first_imgrichard macmanus Tags:#Series#UX Evolutions#web 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Related Posts Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic…center_img Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… It’s the one year anniversary of the launch of the iPad. But has the iPad had as much impact on the online world as smartphones like the iPhone and Android phones? In an internal discussion here at ReadWriteWeb, at least one of our number uses smartphones far more than the iPad. Personally, I use both the iPad and iPhone frequently – but I’d have to say that the iPad has had a bigger impact on my browsing and interaction habits over the past year. For my colleague, it’s been the opposite.Below I’ll explore some of the differences, but I’d love to hear your view in the comments. Which has had a bigger impact on your life over the past year: the iPad (or another tablet), or the smartphone?One of the best ways to illustrate the differences in using a tablet (in particular the iPad) vs. using a smartphone is to look at RSS Readers. Of course, it’s not an either/or thing. Many people, myself included, read RSS feeds on both the iPad and smartphone. Yet there is definitely a difference in user experience. I have a preference for one over the other. Let me know if you’re the same.Smartphones Last week we listed the most popular mobile RSS Readers for smartphones, at least among our savvy readers. In alphabetical order, they are Feedly (iPhone / Android), Google Reader (optimized for mobile in the browser, also the Android app), my6sense (iPhone / Android), Pulse (iPhone / Android) and Reeder (iPhone).Most of those services attempt to filter your feeds, using a variety of recommendation technologies – or just plain selecting certain feeds that it thinks you should see (in the case of Pulse).iPadOn the iPad, magazine-like functionality has proven to be a popular means of browsing feeds. There’s no better exponent of that than Flipboard, which has been one of my primary feed readers over the past year. A couple of the smartphone apps mentioned above have iPad apps too: Pulse and Reeder. With Reeder, there isn’t much difference – it’s really just that the iPad version has a larger screen, which allows for easier browsing and a better layout.Reeder iPad app, landscape view; above and to the right is the Reeder iPhone app.I’ve also experimented with a variety of iPad news apps – such as FLUD, TweetMag, Fluent News and (lately) Zite. Many of them use design flair borrowed from the world of magazines, which I personally find appealing when browsing feeds.Smartphone or iPad: Your Preference?In the end it comes down to personal preference whether you like to browse your RSS feeds on a smartphone or on the iPad. Or neither. And of course it also depends on the context. If you’re out at the mall, then you’re likely to only have your smartphone on you – so that’s how you’ll check your feeds, if need be.For me, the pleasure of consuming content via the iPad usually wins out over the portability of the smartphone when it comes to RSS feeds. That’s just one type of application. I also prefer to watch video on the iPad, make notes in Evernote’s iPad app, browse art works in Art Authority, and more.How about you – has the iPad/tablet or smartphone had a bigger impact on your daily online life over the past year?

Attack on Amarnath pilgrims handiwork of LeT, says Kashmir IG

first_imgThe Jammu and Kashmir police on Tuesday zeroed in on Lashkar-e-Taiba’s Abu Ismail, who took over from Abu Dujana as the Valley’s operation commander, as the mastermind of Monday night’s attack on Amarnath pilgrims which left seven dead and 19 injured. Meanwhile, the pilgrimage continued despite the attack.“This is the handiwork of Lashkar militants,” said Inspector General of Police (IGP), Kashmir range, Muneer Khan. Sources said, Ismail, a foreigner in his twenties, has been on the security radar after the Anantnag police issued a specific threat alert regarding the Amarnath yatra in June. However, security agencies are also looking at the role of Hizbul Mujahideen and the split faction headed by Zakir Mussa.The preliminary assessment suggests that multiple groups may have been involved in the attack as militants opened fire at three places, including on security forces. The pilgrims’ bus came under fire twice within 2 km between 8.20 and 8.40 p.m. Officials in the security establishment in New Delhi were not convinced that the attack was the handiwork of the LeT. “LeT terrorists are mostly fidayeen (suicide squads) who come to get killed. They do not run away and try to inflict as much damage as possible. While it is too early to say which terrorist group did it, it could also be local militants,” said a senior Home Ministry official.The LeT distanced itself from the attack, with its spokesman Abdullah Gaznavi saying, “Islam does not allow violence against any faith. We strongly condemn the attack. India is trying to sabotage Kashmir’s struggle. (National Security Adviser) Ajit Doval is frustrated due to his failed policies.”Sources said security agencies are drafting a joint plan to go after the militant leadership in south Kashmir, where over 200 militants are active. Around 80 were killed this year.Army chief General Bipin Rawat arrived in Srinagar on Tuesday to review the security situation. was scheduled to meet other security agencies too, including local police and CRPF. The proposal is “to focus security on districts adjacent to the Srinagar-Jammu national highway in south Kashmir. in first phase”Meanwhile, Governor N. N. Vohra, who is also chairman of the Shri Amarnath Shrine Board (SASB), convened an emergency security review meet. “It was decided that the pilgrimage shall continue,” said a Raj Bhavan spokesman.A fresh batch of 3,289 pilgrims reached the Valley from Jammu to head for the base camps at Pahalgam and Baltal. Around 18,838 pilgrims left for the holy cave shrine from the base camps in the Valley, said an SASB spokesman.Mr. Vohra, who met 19 injured pilgrims, oversaw the operation where they were airlifted out of J&K. Only three seriously injured pilgrims remain in Anantnag and Srinagar hospitals. Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti, who supervised the rescue and relief operations throughout the night, chaired an emergency Cabinet meeting.The Cabinet termed the incident as “an attack on Kashmir’s syncretic culture and pluralistic values.” The Cabinet took note “of people voicing condemnation against the dastardly act and the heroic role played by the local people of Anantnag in providing immediate relief and succour to the victims of the attack.” The J&K government announced ₹6 lakh for families of those killed, ₹2 lakh to grievously injured and ₹1 lakh to injured. An award of ₹3 lakh will be handed over to the bus driver “who exhibited exemplary alertness.”The SASB also announced relief of ₹5 lakh to the victim families, ₹1.5 lakh to grievously injured and ₹75,000 for pilgrims with minor injuries.last_img read more

Floral tributes paid to Alwar lynching victim, Pehlu Khan, amid protests

first_imgAmid high drama and protests by right-wing groups, the members of a peace march on Friday passed through Behror in Alwar district of Rajasthan, where dairy farmer Pehlu Khan was lynched allegedly by a mob of cow vigilantes in April this year. Aman Biradari convener Harsh Mander, who led the march, paid floral tributes at the spot where Pehlu Khan, 55, was attacked.As the closure of investigation against six persons named in the lynching case created an outrage, the Opposition Congress raised a question mark over the “clean chit” given to the accused. “Police have connived with the criminals to ensure their release. This is yet another instance of the BJP government giving patronage to anti-social elements for political gains,” Pradesh Congress president Sachin Pilot said.Mr. Pilot said Pehlu Khan’s family members had agitated for justice and even joined demonstrations at Jantar Mantar in New Delhi, but they were disappointed by the action of police taken under the ruling party’s pressure. All evidence and facts of the incident suggested that Pehlu Khan was waylaid and killed by those whom he had named in his dying declaration, he said. Civil rights groups in an open letter to CM Vasundhara Raje condemned the closure of probe.Members of Hindu Jagran Manch, Bajrang Dal and Vishwa Hindu Parishad confronted Mr. Mander and his fellow activists at Behror when their “Karwan-e-Mohabbat” (caravan of love) was crossing the streets. The activists of right-wing groups raised slogans and hurled stones at the vehicles of marchers while demanding that they leave the town immediately.A heavy police force was deployed near the spot on the Jaipur-Delhi national highway, at a short distance from the Behror police station, where Pehlu Khan was attacked. When the police refused to allow the marchers to go to the place, Mr. Mander staged a dharna outside the office of the Deputy Superintendent of Police, declaring that he would not leave until the march was allowed to proceed.Later, Mr. Mander was allowed to go alone to the spot. The civil servant-turned-activist offered floral tributes and also met the officers at the police station to express his disappointment over removal of accused from the FIR and registration of criminal cases against Pehlu Khan and his sons.The march also met with resistance at Kotputli on way to Jaipur. Mr. Mander told reporters after arriving here that he was shocked by the way the CID-CB of Rajasthan police had let off six accused in the case despite Pehlu Khan’s dying declaration clearly stating their names.“This is something unprecedented. I have never heard of such an instance before, as the Supreme Court has held that a dying declaration does not need any corroborative evidence,” said Mr. Mander. If there was any doubt the veracity of involvement of the accused, the police should have left it to the court to take a view and filed the charge-sheet, he said.last_img read more
