SAINTS reserves went down 2018 to Wakefield on Fr

first_imgSAINTS reserves went down 20-18 to Wakefield on Friday night, writes Graham Henthorne, Team Manager.The Saints were first on the board, Matty Ashurst spinning out of a tackle to reach over the line. This after good defence had produced a repeat set.But the Wildcats quickly took control and with it the lead. A big defensive effort on the line kept them at bay twice but on the next set the scrum half jinked around the static Saints defenders to score under the sticks.The Saints were failing to push the Wildcats back with the kicking game and then compounding the problems by turning over possession cheaply in their own half.The Wildcats took the lead from such a knock on as their big prop strolled over unopposed.The Saints continued to battle on and minutes before the break their luck changed. A double penalty put the Reserves on the attack and quick hands from Ben Karalius and then Matty Ashurst saw Jordan Case go over for his first try at this level. Tommy Johnson’s second conversion levelled it at 12 apiece.But on the stroke of half time the Wildcats regained the lead with a penalty for the Saints markers not being square.The second period opened with the Wildcats taking two drop goals to extend their lead but in between the Reserves should have gone ahead.On the last Karalius went wide to Scott Hale. The big second rower stretched his legs before putting a pass out to his winger Simon Atherton. The line seemed to be open for him but he pass it back inside just over the head of Karalius and the chance was lost.The Saints were showing some signs of life at last but the recovery was short lived as Ashurst’s pass was intercepted by the Wildcats centre who had an easy run in to the line.The Saints were running out of troops but battled bravely on and set up a nerve jangling final ten minutes as Karalius took Ashurst’s offload to score after good work from the tireless Jordan Hand and Andrew Dixon.As the time ticked on the Saints got increasingly desperate but just as the last chance seemed to have gone good work at marker by Josh Jones gave the Saints possession in the visitor’s 10 metre area. However with four tackles to go, forty seconds remaining on your correspondent’s watch and the Saints inches short, the final whistle blew.Match Summary:Saints:Tries: Ben Karalius, Matty Ashurst, Jordan Case.Goals: Tommy Johnson 3.Wakefield:Tries: Declan Storey, Liam Kay, Ben Gledhill.Goals: Kieran Hyde 3.Drop Goals: Kieran Hyde 2.Half Time: 12-14 Full Time: 18-20Teams:Saints:1.

Samsung Galaxy S IV to reportedly feature floating touch Android 421 Samsung

first_imgAdvertisement Samsung Galaxy S IV launch is one of the most anticipated events and now that we’re drawing closer, the rumours are coming thick and fast.The latest one, courtesy SamMobile mentions that the Galaxy S IV will come with a new display technology from Samsung in the form of a “green PHOLED”, that bears similarities to the company’s current AMOLED displays. What’s different you ask? Well, according to the blog’s “insider”, the new display uses colour GREEN-YELLOW to make it 25% more efficient in terms of battery consumption.Furthermore, the blog also reiterates the earlier rumoured floating touch technology that will be a part of the Galaxy S IV. The technology present in Samsung’s Air view, is only found in the famed S Pen as of now. This is the same technology that Sony had first incorporated in its Xperia Sola smartphone. It lets consumers browse the web by hovering their finger above the screen so it acts like a moving cursor, without actually having to touch the display. – Advertisement – The Samsung-focused blog also confirms through its same “insider” source that the device will pack an eight-core Samsung Exynos Octa processor, a 13-megapixel rear camera, 2 GB RAM, and a Photosphere-like function called Samsung Orb.Also, it will run Android 4.2.1 at launch, with an update to Android 4.2.2 promised to come in the same month as its release. An enhanced version of Samsung’s TouchWiz Nature UX, most likely version 2.0, will also make its way to the smartphone.What’s interesting is that so far, we’ve heard about two different Samsung devices for the Galaxy S IV. While one comes with the aforementioned specs, the other has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor and a Super LCD3 screen. It’s still unclear, which of the two will officially be unveiled or whether both indeed will go on sale.From past rumors, we’ve heard that one model will be headed for North America, while the other one will make its way to Europe and other regions.We earlier reported that Samsung is also introducing new ‘Smart’ features that could be seen in its upcoming flagship namely Smart Scroll and Smart Pause amongst Smart Rotation and Smart Stay. The features were earlier leaked via screenshots indicating firmware for the Galaxy S III which will update the phone to Android 4.2.1.Smart Scroll will allow the content on the screen to scroll automatically (considering the feature is turned on) if the device detects your attention towards the screen. Smart Pause, on the other hand seems to be restricted to videos, which will be paused once you look away from the screen.The same blog earlier also reported via its sources that the Galaxy S IV will feature 6 variants with Black and White colours and each colour variant to further include 16/32/64GB storage options.Credit: NDTVlast_img read more

WordPress makes ten years

first_imgAdvertisement Open-source blogging platform and content management system (CMS), WordPress is ten years old now. It has gone from being a simple blogging platform to an extremely helpful tool for building websites and enabling communication across the web, in the past decade.It was created by Matt Mullenweg and Mike Little and started as a blogging platform b2/cafelog. The service now powers 18 percent of the Internet, thanks to its CMS capabilities. Using WordPress anyone can modify designs and themes on their site as well as add third-party plug-ins.The service being open source is one of its greatest advantages. One need not seek permission before going about implementing newly developed features. There is no wonder then, that WordPress is the most commonly used CMS. – Advertisement – To commemorate ten years of existence, Mullenweg wrote a little love letter to the platform he created:Dear WordPress,Has it really been 10 years? It seems just yesterday we were playing around on my blog, and the blogs of a few high school friends. Two of those friends are married, one isn’t anymore, two are still figuring things out, and one has passed away.You were cute before you became beautiful. Wearing black and white, afraid of color, trying to be so unassuming. I know you got jealous when I wore those Blogger t-shirts. They were the cool kids at SxSW and I thought maybe you could grow up to be like them.You wouldn’t have shirts of your own for a few more years. We didn’t know what we were doing when we made them and the logo printed ginormous. People called them the Superman shirt and made fun of them. But, oh, that logo — the curves fit you so well.You showed the world you were growing up, and how much you cared about design and typography and other platonic ideals. You knew that open source didn’t have to be homely. I stretched myself too thin trying to get you there, and I did a stupid thing to pay for it. I hurt you, but instead of casting me away you held me closer, supported me, gave me another chance. I will never forget that. Akismet made me feel less guilty. I wouldn’t change anything, because the mistake made me understand how important it is to fly straight and take your time.You’re so beautiful… I’m continually amazed and delighted by how you’ve grown. Your awkward years are behind you. Best of all, through it all, you’ve stuck with the principles that got you started in the first place. You’re always changing but that never changes. You’re unafraid to try new things that may seem wacky or unpopular at first.I see you all over the world now, glowing from screens, bringing people together at meetups and WordCamps — you’re at your best when you do that. You’re my muse; you inspire me, and I’ve seen you inspire others. You become a part of their life and they become a part of yours. I hope we grow old together.Cheers to ten years, and here’s to a hundred more.Love,Matt.last_img read more

Meet Googles smart WiFi router – OnHub

first_imgGoogle’s OnHub smart Wi-Fi router. Image Credit: SlashGear Advertisement Google has launched a Wi-Fi router, the latest move in the company’s efforts to get ready for the connected home and draw more users to its services.The search giant on Tuesday unveiled the OnHub, a sleek new router that Google developed with the networking hardware company TP-Link.The cylinder-shaped router, can be pre-ordered for $199.99 online from retailers; Google Store and – Advertisement – The idea is this: Most Wi-Fi routers are ugly, with unruly cords, so people put them on the floor or out of the way where they can’t be seen. But that also causes the device to emit a weaker Wi-Fi signal, Google said. The company hopes the answer is making a better-looking device that people don’t mind displaying out in the open. It has subtle blinking lights and all its antennas are packed inside its black, cylindrical shell. The device also displays the Wi-Fi password if someone taps on it.The device supports not only 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, but also Bluetooth 4.0 and a few smart home protocols. One such protocol is Weave, the Android team’s Internet of Things (IoT) communications layer that it announced at Google I/O alongside Brillo, its Android-derived OS for IoT.It also supports Thread, an IoT wireless protocol created by Google’s Nest Labs and Samsung. OnHub also offers IEEE 802.15.4, the basis for Zigbee, another IoT protocol that is popular in many devices.Credit: ArsTechnica, CNet,last_img read more
