Dygest: Survey All The Hottest News Coverage in One Digest

first_imgDygest.net is a fascinating new service that looks over hundreds of topical sources online, finds out what the hot topics are and publishes excerpts of coverage that help tell the whole story succinctly on one page. It’s like Cliffs Notes for meme-tracking and it appears to work quite well.At first glance Dygest looks like the work of one more computer scientist who’s trained a robot to hunt for hot links. There are a lot of those now. This one uses natural language processing algorithms instead of tracking links between sources, though, and the summaries from multiple sources are enjoyable to read. Demo sites have been set up for technology, environmental, film, Chicago-area and San Francisco area news.

The site isn’t particularly eye catching at all, but as a proof of concept it’s very interesting. You can either get a broad understanding of a story by reading highlighted paragraphs from various sources, or pick one of those sources to dive deep into its particular coverage. The opportunity to sample different writing styles, angles and key points makes Dygest fun to read casually and for in-depth exploration of the news.The team behind Dygest says they think the service would be well suited for mobile consumption, but white labeling the technology is high on their list of ideas as well. OneSpot comes to mind as an immediate competitor, but there are others.Dygest has pre-seeded each of its demo sites with a few hundred sources, but the possibilities the analysis engine presents are many.

In peak shape, Seema Antil hopes to grab the spotlight at the Olympics

first_imgKrishna Poonia versus Seema Antil is not as hyped as many other rivalries in Indian sport. Yet, as D-day nears for the London Olympics opening ceremony, the tall Seema is looking confident.Almost shying away from the media at a party on Monday night, Seema is playing the quiet game. “Talk to my coach please,” she said when a couple of mediapersons approached her.”Insi miliye, yee mere husband hain,” she said again, trying to deflect the attention. However, after the pleasantries, it was time for Seema to talk.Having spent almost 10 months training in California, Seema says she has got stronger and is ready for the big day. The drug spectre has haunted her for long and now she knows it’s all about competing fair and square in the unpredictable weather of London.The small, light-red tilak on her forehead did suggest she has been praying hard and hopes to do well. But at an event as big as the Olympics, nothing is because of chance.”The time has come and I am ready. Nobody can now offer any excuse,” says Seema, looking quite relaxed.Having been through her share of lows as well, when she first tested positive for drugs, Seema is aware what it will be like in London.Seema looked surprised when she was asked how she was feeling.”I am feeling good sir,” said a shy Seema, almost refusing to move away from her husband who stood at attention. “I am in peak shape and no fitness worries,” she added as she again tried to engage her coach to be involved in the conversation.More questions followed, as she was asked if the focus on Krishna Poonia was upsetting her. “People probably don’t know me well but I’m happy to be away from limelight and recently threw 62.30 metres in a competition in UK,” she said.At the same time, Krishna had thrown just close to 61 metres.Seema’s own expectations are that on current form she is hoping to make the final. At this point, finally, coach Tony Ciarelly stepped in.Looking rugged and ready to talk, Ciarelly spoke of how Seema had worked hard. “Yeah, she has worked with me now for almost a year though it could have been longer,” he said.”In my view, the strongest thing about Seema is she works hard. I have been able to work on her technique and tact and she is able to hurl the discus freely. The weather in London may be unpredictable but if it gets slippery, I am confident Seema will still do well,” said coach Ciarelly.”Her fitness is good and she is fully aware of her body which any athlete should be,” he adds.So what is Seema capable of? “Let’s be honest, I’m looking at the finals. At least 4-5 girls are better than the two Indian girls Seema and Krishna who I saw for the first time last week.”It’s bright and sunny now but if the weather changes, count Seema in. She is capable of 64-65m… so you never know,” he said.Seema won bronze medal at the Commonwealth Games in New Delhi. This time, she is aware nothing can be left to chance.advertisementlast_img read more

Lampard endorses Chelsea move for Dzeko

first_imgTransfers Lampard endorses Chelsea move for Dzeko Chris Burton Last updated 1 year ago 18:15 1/27/18 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(0) Edin Dzeko Getty/Goal Transfers Chelsea Edin Džeko Roma Serie A Premier League The Blues are still to get an agreement for the Roma striker over the line, but the former England midfielder believes he would be a decent addition Frank Lampard has backed Chelsea’s move for Edin Dzeko and believes that he offers the “something different” that the Blues need.Antonio Conte has regularly bemoaned an inability to get top targets through the door at Stamford Bridge.Further reinforcements are still required, having lost the title-winning experience of Diego Costa and Nemanja Matic, with the London club currently in talks with Dzeko.

A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player Eden Dzeko lAMPARD eLampard feels the former Manchester City star would be a shrewd addition, with the Bosnia international a better fit for a club of Chelsea’s stature than other mooted targets such as West Ham’s Andy Carroll and Stoke City’s Peter Crouch.The Blues legend told the Evening Standard: “Carroll and Crouch are not the kind of names Chelsea have gone for in the past.“But January is a tough one and [Alexis] Sanchez is a one-off. The majority of the time you’re looking at making minor adjustments.“If it’s a Crouch or Carroll, it’s just a back-up but Dzeko is something different. He is a very good player, an all-round striker with all the attributes.“In terms of investing heavily, that will come in the summer. It’s very easy to say that Crouch and Carroll are not Chelsea signings but it’s not an indication of where Chelsea are going.“It is more a sign that the manager doesn’t think they strengthened enough last summer.”Chelsea  are currently third in the Premier League standings while also readying themselves for an FA Cup fourth round clash with Newcastle and a heavyweight last-16 encounter with Barcelona in the Champions League.There is, therefore, still all to play for, with Lampard convinced that a testing season can end on a high.He said: “This is when the experienced players are vital – there is nothing wrong with getting everyone together and reminding everyone to push.“Chelsea do need to get their act together. They have the spirit there. They have the players.“When Chelsea get it right, as we saw last season, they can take on anybody. It is certainly not the time to give up.”last_img read more
