Half-time: Chelsea 0 Crystal Palace 0 – Blues fortunate not to be behind at the break

first_imgChelsea dominated much of the first half at Stamford Bridge but the best chance fell to Yohan Cabaye, who should have put Crystal Palace ahead.Pedro, making his home debut for the hosts, sent a left-footed strike wide and Willian fired over as they had the majority of possession.But Palace have so far defended well, passed the ball nicely and been a threat on the counter-attack.Bakary Sako found space in behind Branislav Ivanovic and brought a save from Blues keeper Thibaut Courtois.And when a succession of tidy passes culminated in Wilfried Zaha teeing up Cabaye, the Frenchman could only side-foot straight at Courtois.Eagles keeper Alex McCarthy produced a double save shortly before the break, stooping to his right to block Diego Costa’s low shot and then Cesc Fabregas’ follow-up.McCarthy was then called into action again, reacting quickly to keep out Nemanja Matic’s shot after the midfielder had made space for himself in the penalty area.Chelsea: Courtois; Ivanovic, Cahill, Zouma, Azpilicueta; Matic, Fabregas; Pedro, Willian, Hazard; Costa.Subs: Begovic, Baba, Mikel, Loftus-Cheek, Kenedy, Remy, Falcao.Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

Ohio Ag Weather and Forecast November 30, 2018

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Warm air is rushing in across Ohio today, coming up from the southwest. That warm air moving over the cold surface is triggering a lot of clouds and some dense fog this morning. In addition to the fog, some light snow can pop up over the far northern part of the state early this morning. Fog may give way to some spits, sprinkles or flurries in central and southern Ohio. We should be dry from noon or early afternoon forward as south/southwest winds continuing all day long. No change in our Saturday forecast. Rains sweep across the entire state on into the evening. Strong gusty winds will accompany the rain, and we still think there is decent potential for thunderstorms. Rain totals will be from half to 1.5” over 100% of the state. Scattered showers continue over at least 60% of the state on Sunday, bringing another few hundredths to .25” with about 60% coverage. Much colder air starts to blast into the state overnight Sunday night into Monday, and that will allow any lingering rain to end as some light snow, again mainly in the northern part of the state. The map at right shows potential precipitation totals through Sunday night. Lake effect snows can develop Monday and Tuesday in northern Indiana in areas close to Lake Erie. Accumulations are possible in the most typical lake effect snow areas. The rest of the state will be partly sunny, but cold. For Wednesday and Thursday, the entire state will be cloudy to partly sunny but still cold with below normal temps. Light precipitation returns Friday next week as we look for scattered light rain or light snow showers (snow to the north, better chances of light rain in the south. Then we get into a period that has some diverging forecast potential. One model brings significant rain changing to snow overnight Friday night through Saturday, another model says basically a little rain and that is it. We have been talking for some snow potential on Saturday out of this wave, and we are going to run with that forecast through this weekend and take another look on Monday. Right now, we will keep the potential for .25”-.75” of combined liquid equivalent moisture but may have to amend and restructure the forecast next Monday. We go back dry again for Sunday with bitter cold air potential. We are seeing signs of some single digit to near zero temps near sunrise Monday morning. We stay cold through Monday. From Tuesday of the week after next forward, we have a significant warm up coming. We will be above normal for temps Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. This warm air will bring rain from Thursday night the 14th into Friday the 14th. Then we have cold air returning quickly, with a chance of that rain moving back to snow before ending Saturday morning (15th). There can be some snow accumulations, and ahead of that, rain totals will be from .25”-.5”.last_img read more

What It’s Like To Write For Demand Media: Low Pay But Lots of Freedom

first_imgRelated Posts Tags:#New Media#user-generated content#web Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai…center_img 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market guest author 1 Editor: This is a guest post by Andria Krewson, a freelance journalist who has written for Demand Media. Given our recent focus on Demand Media and so-called content farms, we thought it would be interesting to get the perspective of a Demand Media writer.I made $37.50 at Demand Studios in November. That money went directly into my Paypal account, on time, with no billing hassles. But it probably took me about six hours of filling out a profile, studying a style guide and learning how to navigate the system. So my hourly pay was about $6, for a writer new to the system.Andria Krewson is a freelance journalist and consultant in Charlotte, N.C. She has worked at newspapers for 27 years, focusing on design and editing of community publications. She blogs for her neighborhood at Under Oak and covers changing culture at Crossroads Charlotte. Reach her on Twitter as @underoak.I had heard about Demand Studios from former co-workers before Wired wrote about Demand Media (Demand Studio’s parent company) in October, and media pundits like Jay Rosen followed up with comments on Twitter and an interview with the company’s CEO at ReadWriteWeb. [Ed: ReadWriteWeb’s first analysis of Demand Media was in August.] Demand Media has been criticized for producing low-quality content designed for search engine optimization. It’s not journalism, critics say, and it’s clogging up Google searches, making good stuff hard to find.But I suspect much of that criticism has come from people who haven’t gone inside the Demand Studios part of Demand Media to see how it really works, or they haven’t thought enough about what kind of content it provides, or they haven’t thought enough about how it feels to swallow your pride and make a little money with your strongest knowledge and skills, no matter the global hourly rate.There are differences between the user-generated content at sites Demand Media feeds, and the content generated by Demand Studios.So let’s get to it.How it worksPeople sign up as writers, editors or filmmakers. I signed up as a writer. Contributors study the style guide, which gives specifics on allowed citations, and why citations are needed, and how to write for search-engine optimization without sounding too clunky. New writers can also consult forums and connect with other contributors with social-networking tools. Writers can then use keywords, pay rates and general content areas to search through available assignments. Generally, enough assignments exist that writers can find subjects of personal interest.Fact sheets get $7.50 an assignment. I fulfilled one of those before I realized that rate of pay wasn’t worth the effort. The next two assignments, for $15 each, both dealt with the same topic, with slightly different angles, and I chose them because I knew the subject well. Still, I had to do some research, to back up my statements and provide links to .edu or .gov sites. No Wikipedia allowed.Once accepting assignments, I had a week to submit them to editors. While I could have written each piece without any research, citations and outbound links are required, as well as a summary (a nut graf, essentially, in newspaper terms). Frankly, the discipline of filling out boxes with words could help some professional writers improve the focus of their pieces. Certainly new writers can learn from the system. And the SEO tips in the style guide are worth study.One piece I wrote was bounced back for further editing. The editor’s comments were gentle but clear. I made fixes, resubmitted, and got paid, through Paypal, no invoices necessary.What’s the content?The stories are usually how-to pieces, often broken into steps. They’re evergreen, designed to be as relevant in a year or two as they are now. They’re the kinds of questions I would usually get answered through a phone call to my contractor father, or my brother the car genius, or my mother the seamstress/cook/homemaker/gardener/early computer geek.You can tell by the assignment headlines that they’re generated from search engine queries, and sometimes those search terms provide some amusement. People are actually turning to Google to ask these questions? What happened to asking basic questions from friends and family?But indeed, we’re in a different world, and the criticism of Demand Media by some pundits strikes me as a bit elitist, as if the Internet weren’t for everyone. A personal example:(Daughter, 19, volunteers to help me with my eye shadow for a special event.)Me: Where’d you learn this technique?Her: Youtube.(And indeed, eHow videos, supplied by Demand Media, show how to apply eye shadow.)Swallowing my prideMy friends who first told me about Demand Studios are wordsmiths, copy editors of the highest skill levels, who worked for Demand Studios for $3.50 a story.Yes, $3.50 a story. But one friend, once he had the hang of the system, managed to work fast enough to raise his rate to about $20 an hour, from his couch, on his schedule, while waiting to get a full-time job elsewhere.Another friend also edited for Demand Studios, as a supplement to a part-time job before eventually getting full-time work, after about a year of underemployment.Demand Media doesn’t need help with public relations from me. They’re compiling comments in an internal forum from their writers about why they love Demand Studios. And plenty of people have commented. They appear to be overwhelmingly women, often with children, often English majors or journalism students, looking for a way to do what they love and make a little money at it.Compare those demographics to Wikipedia: more than 80% male, more than 65% single, more than 85% without children, around 70% under the age of 30.Admittedly, working for Demand Studios isn’t a point of pride for most professional journalists. But the interface and the editing allow people with other expertise to share knowledge. I recommended the site to my father the contractor. It could be a good way for a retiree with a lifetime of knowledge to document life lessons for others.People with disabilities, or people who have to fit their work around children’s schedules, or people between jobs have a place to earn some money, from their living rooms. It’s not the only “writer mill” out there, but it has been under fire lately, and a look inside might add a little light.Jay Rosen’s interview with the CEO of Demand Media, Richard Rosenblatt, done via IM, included this quote from Rosenblatt:“What’s more like a sweatshop: someone’s living room working their own hours or a typical newsroom?”Certainly some people in newsrooms are feeling pressure these days, but perhaps that quote isn’t quite fair. For a newsroom copy editor to earn $28 an hour (not factoring in benefits), at the Demand Studios rate of $3.50 a story, they would have to “edit” 64 stories in an eight-hour shift. I don’t know of newsrooms that are quite at that point yet, but then again, we’re in a global economy, with global pay rates.Some wordsmiths will choose to work from their couches.

Footage from ‘lost’ Marathi film classic makes its way to NFAI vaults

first_imgAficionados of Marathi cinema and fans of iconic Marathi litterateur P.L. Deshpande — affectionately known as ‘Pu La’ — have news to cheer about as the city-based National Film Archive of India (NFAI) has acquired rare footage from a ‘lost’ Marathi film classic of the 1940s which starred Deshpande.The film, Vande Mataram (1948) directed by Ram Gabale, is a much sought-after memorabilia item high on the lists of Marathi film collectors and devotees of Pu La’s work.It marked the first time that the multi-faceted Deshpande, who starred alongside his wife Sunita, played the lead role following minor appearances in earlier films, Kuber (1947) and Bhagyaresha (1948).“The 35-minute footage that we have received has rekindled hopes that the complete film may yet be discovered. The footage, in form of a VHS tape, was given to us by Dinesh Thakur (Sunita Deshpande’s nephew) and film historian Satish Jakatdar along with U-matic tapes which contain previously unseen footage of Pu La playing the harmonium,” said Prakash Magdum, Director, NFAI.He informed that while the sound quality was all right, there was dire need to enhance the picture quality of the footage.Vande Mataram, made immediately after Independence but set during the freedom struggle, was a heady confluence of the most formidable talents to grace Marathi cinema during its heyday in the late 1940s. The film, shot in Kolhapur, was written by yet another legendary Marathi literary figure, the famed poet-writer Gajanan Digambar Madgulkar who also provided the lyrics, while the music was composed by renowned singer Sudhir Phadke.It was edited by Raja Thakur (who later became a director in his own right), helmed by the talented Mr. Gabale, a Prabhat Studios regular, and was produced by the maverick P.R. Bhide.The film, with its memorable music and songs, focuses on the patriotism of ordinary folks and is laced with gentle humour.“VandeMataram is indeed remarkable for the dazzling array of talent associated with it as Madgulkar, Pu La and Phadke constituted the veritable trinity of Marathi cinema during its golden age in the late 1940s and 50s. Its ‘lost film’ status has lent it a certain aura. The film was very dear to its composer, Sudhir Phadke, who had in fact visited Mr. Thakur’s residence in Mumbai following Pu La’s death in 2000 to search if the latter had preserved it in his collection,” said Mr. Magdum, speaking to The Hindu.He said that the footage featured a couple of songs and has Pu La singing a powada (ballad).“In particular, one song from this film, Ved Mantrahun Vandya, became a huge hit and endures in its popularity even till this day,” said Mr. Magdum.He further said that the acquisition was doubly delightful as by a happy coincidence this year happens to be the birth centenary of P.L. Deshpande, G.D. Madgulkar and Sudhir Phadke. Incidentally 2018 was the birth centenary of the film’s producer, P.R. Bhide.“Bhide was an interesting character who dabbled in a number of things including the cinema. Besides Vande Mataram, the other notable film he produced was Lalat (1947) where his auteurist tendencies were in full display in his highly innovative experiment of using 16 mm film to record sound instead of film,” Mr. Magdum said, remarking that Bhide later exited cinema to become a spiritual godman, establishing the Manashakti Center in Lonavla and assuming the name of ‘Swami Vijnananand’.Of the other memorabilia acquired by the NFAI, one of the two hour-long U-matic cassettes showcase the considerable Harmonium skills of the versatile Mr. Deshpande and were recorded sometime in Mumbai in the 1980s.The other cassette has his inimitable recitation of some of his beloved characters from his literary ouvre.In December 2015, the NFAI had received another rare ‘Pu La’ memorabilia in the form of Deshpande’s original handwritten script of the enduring 1953 Marathi classic Gulacha Ganpati which was later digitized by them.last_img read more

FIFA keeps 32 teams for 2022 World Cup, scrapping expansion

first_imgBut FIFA has now concluded that it lacked to the time to prepare a country to host the extra games.In Kuwait, Jaber Al-Ahmad International Stadium has 60,000 seats and the capacity at Sabah Al-Salem Stadium is only 26,000. Both venues would require upgrades to be used at the World Cup, putting the spotlight on working conditions and labor rights.FIFA Secretary General Fatma Samoura wrote to human rights activists last month to offer assurances that there was going to be “an assessment of human rights risks and potential opportunities associated with a possible expansion.”Qatar has an exemption that allows foreigners to drink alcohol, but Kuwait has a complete ban which would have be problematic for FIFA, which has Budweiser as a major sponsor.FIFA has already had to adapt to cope with taking its showpiece tournament to the Middle East for the first time.ADVERTISEMENT Cayetano: Senate, Drilon to be blamed for SEA Games mess Private companies step in to help SEA Games hosting While Qatar won a vote in 2010 on the basis of staging a June-July World Cup, FIFA shifted the tournament to from its usual slot because of the fierce summer heat to Nov. 21-Dec 18, 2022.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next MOST READ Ethel Booba twits Mocha over 2 toilets in one cubicle at SEA Games venue LATEST STORIES DA eyes importing ‘galunggong’ anew Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

(AP Photo/Kamran Jebreili)FIFA scrapped plans to expand the 2022 Qatar World Cup to 48 nations, deciding Wednesday to stick with 32 countries due to the political and logistical complexities of using another Persian Gulf nation.FIFA President Gianni Infantino’s hopes of expanding the Middle East’s first World Cup in the region were stymied by the regional diplomatic crisis and the governing body’s demands on host nations to adhere to its human and labor rights requirements. That means the World Cup will not be expanded until 2026, with FIFA already having approved a format with 48 teams for that tournament in the United States, Canada and Mexico.ADVERTISEMENT Robredo calls for scrapping of ‘Oplan Tokhang’ PLAY LIST 02:34Robredo calls for scrapping of ‘Oplan Tokhang’00:50Trending Articles00:50Trending Articles02:42PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games01:44Philippines marks anniversary of massacre with calls for justice01:19Fire erupts in Barangay Tatalon in Quezon City01:07Trump talks impeachment while meeting NCAA athletes02:49World-class track facilities installed at NCC for SEA Games02:11Trump awards medals to Jon Voight, Alison Krauss Two-day strike in Bicol fails to cripple transport Duterte wants probe of SEA Games mess A meeting of the FIFA Council in March authorized Infantino to work with Qatar on seeing if it was feasible to use at least one more country in the region to accommodate an additional 16 matches and present a proposal at meetings in June.“Following a thorough and comprehensive consultation process with the involvement of all the relevant stakeholders, it was concluded that under the current circumstances such a proposal could not be made now,” FIFA said in a statement on Wednesday. “Due to the advanced stage of preparations and the need for a detailed assessment of the potential logistical impact on the host country, more time would be required and a decision could not be taken before the deadline of June.
