AFL The Tigers win an MCG blockbuster against the Magpies to stay on top of the AFL ladder, while the Cats, Giants, Demons and Blues also taste victory. Richmond has stormed clear to win its blockbuster against Collingwood by 28 points and set an AFL record at the MCG. The reigning premiers dominated the last quarter again to beat the Magpies 16.9 (105) to 12.5 (77) in front of 88,180 spectators, giving the Tigers their 18th-straight win at the venue. That beats the league’s previous streak at the grand final venue, set by Melbourne in the 1950s. For three quarters, the clash between the ladder-leading Tigers and the third-placed Magpies lived up to the hype as the match of the season. But injury-plagued Collingwood was down to two fit men on the bench and it told in the final term. The Tigers kicked five goals to one in the last quarter, the 14th time this season they have won the final term. There are fears Collingwood’s Matthew Scharenberg has torn an anterior cruciate ligament, which would mean his third knee reconstruction. Scharenberg needed reconstructions in 2014 and 2015. Collingwood also lost fellow backman Jeremy Howe with concussion. In the past few weeks, Adam Treloar (hamstrings), Linden Dunn (season-ending knee reconstruction) and most recently Jordan De Goey (leg) have all been major injury concerns for Collingwood. The Magpies lost no friends with Saturday’s performance, but eventually ran out of steam. Collingwood ruckman Brodie Grundy was best afield and key defender David Astbury led the way for the Tigers. After a week of intense debate about potential rule changes, Saturday’s pulsating clash will be ammunition for those who say no changes are necessary. Collingwood was in massive trouble when Richmond went on a three-goal run in the opening quarter and led by 19 points at the first break. Jayden Short twice caught the Magpies napping, drifting up from half-back to receive the handball from a teammate and then kicking a massive goal. Adding to the Magpies’ woes, they lost Howe to a head knock late in the first term. Howe was pushed into a marking contest and he collided heavily with teammate Darcy Moore. But Collingwood rallied superbly, kicking five goals to two in the second term and only trailling by eight points at the main break. Tigers star Dustin Martin lost his cool with tagger Levi Greenwood, giving away a 50-metre penalty late in the second term. But Martin had his revenge, going forward and taking a strong mark seconds before the half-time siren. He kicked the goal and slotted another at the start of the third term. Collingwood’s injury woes continued when Scharenberg limped off during the third quarter. Magpies forward Brodie Mihocek was hurt in the second term, but he returned to the game in the third quarter. Richmond onballer Dion Prestia also appeared to be playing sore. Tigers forward Jack Higgins kicked a controversial and extraordinary goal in the third quarter, where he had to run behind one of the goalposts. He threw the ball to himself to keep it in play before kicking over his head, but the umpires let the goal stand. Tom Hawkins has feasted on a lacklustre Brisbane, claiming another seven-goal haul to help Geelong boosted its finals chances with a 42-point win at Kardinia Park. Hawkins continued his hot form as the Cats broke away in the second half to secure a 18.12 (120) to 11.12 (78) victory. The win lifts the Cats to fourth on the ladder and ensures they will finish the round within the eight regardless of other results. A week after booting seven majors during Geelong’s after-the-siren victory over Melbourne, Hawkins again ran riot at the Cats’ home fortress. read more

Tags:#Internet TV#NYT#web Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Related Posts A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Earlier this week, Fox made good on its promise to limit Web access to its television content until eight days after a show has been aired. The network’s new system enables Dish Network and Hulu Plus subscribers to watch new episodes online shortly after they air, but requires everybody else to wait. Subscribers can watch brand new episodes on Fox.com by authenticating with their Hulu or Dish Network account credentials. When this plan was first announced, our own Dan Rowinski wondered if the move would have the result of throttling Hulu and potentially costing the service some of its users. We may be about to find out. As Fox backs away from the free, quickly-available Web TV content model, ABC has indicated it’s ready to do the same, according to a post on AllThingsD. “We’ll basically push the window back or make access to the programming more difficult or later, except if customers are authenticated as a subscriber.” Walt Disney Company CEO Robert Iger said in an earnings call recently, citing a desire to preserve the company’s existing relationships with traditional content distributors. That means that, come Fall, people may need to wait several days before watching the most recent episode of shows like Modern Family, Grey’s Anatomy and Desperate Housewives. These moves come as little surprise as content providers have sought to maximize the profits made from television content, something that hasn’t proven simple to do as viewers increasingly shift to the Web to watch shows. Hulu, which became profitable in 2009, is expected to earn as much as $500 million in revenue this year. Even so, the revenue seen by content providers from Internet streaming services like Hulu doesn’t come close to what they’ve made from their more traditional content distribution relationships. The challenges experienced by television networks are somewhat akin to those faced by newspapers and magazines in recent years. While it provides a more timely and interactive mode of distributing content, the Web is slower to offer a business model that compares to these businesses’ traditional models, which tend to erode more quickly than the new ones can take shape. john paul titlow Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market read more
(Missourinet) A proposed constitutional amendment requiring that Missouri’s conservation sales tax be renewed by voters every six years will be heard by a House committee in Jefferson City on Monday evening.State Rep. Mike Moon, R-Ash Grove, speaks on the Missouri House floor in Jefferson City on February 28, 2019 (file photo courtesy of Tim Bommel of House Communications)The House Conservation and Natural Resources Committee will hear testimony Monday at 7 from State Rep. Mike Moon, R-Ash Grove, who’s the bill sponsor.Committee chairman State Rep. Tim Remole, R-Excello, tells Missourinet he expects a standing-room only audience on Monday evening. Moon is also expecting a big turnout, telling Missourinet a group called the “Missouri Hunting and Working Dog Alliance” plans to support the bill Monday.Under Representative Moon’s measure, which is House joint resolution 18, Missourians would cast ballots on the measure in November 2020.The conservation sales tax was first approved by Missouri voters in November 1976, and it hasn’t been voted on since.Moon’s proposed constitutional amendment, upon voter approval, would require the conservation sales tax to be approved by voters in 2020 and every six years thereafter.Former State Sen. Brian Munzlinger, R-Williamstown, filed similar legislation in 2018. That bill died.The conservation sales tax is a separate tax from the one-tenth-of-one percent parks, soil and water sales tax that was created through a constitutional amendment. That tax was first approved by Missouri voters in 1984, and was earmarked specifically for the state park system and efforts to stop soil erosion.Missouri voters have re-approved it four times: in 1988, 1996, 2006 and in 2016. read more
RaftingThough the rafting industry is booming in Uttarakhand and Rishikesh is the rafting capital of India, professionals are finding it hard to hone their skills due to the lack of certificate courses.Bringing hope, some international agencies have evinced interest to train youths. Currently, in the absence of proper courses in rafting, many youths opt for a mountaineering course from the Nehru Institute of Mountaineering (NIM).Acting as a provider of guides to the industry is Sirasu village. It is now known as the village of guides, has 50 youths working as river guides.The village recently added another feather in its cap by giving India its first certified instructor from the America-based Rescue 3 International Institute. Bhupendra Rana (32) recently returned to Rishikesh after completing the course from the California-based institute.Speaking about his training, Rana said: “The monthlong course in the US was extensive and focused on air, ground and water rescue. Now, I will conduct a course on River Rescue Certificate in the Alak-By Raju Gusain in Dehradun nanda from February 3-5.””Due to lack of knowledge, river guides here fail to act properly in crises. I will share my knowledge with fellow guides to improve their technique,” he added.The state government has long been planning to set up an adventure sports institute in Tehri to impart training on rescue operations and crises management but there is little idea about when the plan will materialise. President of the Indian Association of Professional Rafting Outfitters (IAPRO) Kiran Bhatt Todaria said, ” We have been constantly urging the government to set up an institute.”advertisement read more
