That’s not easy when you have 10 men behind the ball committed and organized. Our performance and work ethic was good. We could have improved our ball circulation, but it was a real character test to be able to come from down 1-0 to win 2-1 against a very well organized and defensively minded team.” Next Game: Story Links Drake opens MVC play, Sept. 17, when Loyola visits Cownie.

Open Thread: Mainstream Media Discovers Geekery, Is This a Good Thing?

first_imgA Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Related Posts Facebook’s getting its own movie, Ashton Kutcher is the social web’s unpaid spokesman and now NBC is launching a show dedicated to mobile apps.What’s the world coming to? Call me old fashioned, but where I come from, a geek is a geek and a mainstream actor with an iPhone is still just a mainstream actor with an iPhone. The Oprahtization of technology is at least a bit demeaning, from my point of view. Sure, this trend brings exposure to our heroic exploits, but it’s often done through stereotypes about geeks and an air of naïveté about how technology really works. What do you think? Am I being a curmudgeon? Is all this mainstream-tech integration really a good thing?Granted, we all have to discover technology at some point. None of us were born nerds. But there’s a certain je ne sais quoi that is unique to geeks: a melange of smarts, social pickiness, a willingness to be different, insatiable curiosity, a desire to learn and create new and amazing things, and frequently, a very necessary shell to protect oneself from the rejections of the larger world around us. As a people accustomed to being ostracized for speaking in terms too technical, having a bizarre sense of humor or caring more about bandwidth than baseball, we have generally existed far outside the cool kids’ club. Not to frame my entire argument in a high school analogy, but we have mostly been useful for one thing: Doing other people’s homework. When they – the non-technical of this world – want an application, device, website or feature, we built it and teach them how to use it. This has been the geek’s role for eons: Doing the jocks’ dirty work and then skipping prom. Can you imagine Einstein hobnobbing with Marlene Deitrich? Or a young Steve Jobs on an early ’80s red carpet with a young Harrison Ford? Yet we are seeing more and more crossover between mainstream media and our little world of technology to the point that you can’t tell the tech from the tinsel.Perhaps it’s just disconcerting to see those two worlds meshing for the first time. Perhaps all my angst is simply discomfort. Yet when I see and hear innovators and geeks referred to as ugly, graceless basement-dwellers, even in jest, by mainstream talking heads, it still gets to me.But what gets to me more is the new set of faux geeks – folks who know just enough about tech to send a misspelled Twitter update from their mobiles but who thrive on the attention and revenue they gain from this scene. They wouldn’t know an API from a IP; the red carpet is more likely their natural habitat; yet they incessantly appear in blog posts, pictures and videos until the real geeks don’t even remember how they got there. It happens on a small scale (every tech scene has its skill-free new media douchebag), and it’s starting to happen on a larger scale, as well (why is Olivia Munn a geek, again?).Call me bitter, call me jealous, call me cynical – but let me know what you think, too. Some of our friends on Twitter told us they didn’t like mainstream media’s encroachment onto geek territory, but others who responded to our query see this exposure as a good thing, and we want to hear this point of view, as well. After all, I was excited the first time I heard Twitter mentioned in a news report, too.Give us your opinions in the comments, and don’t hold back! We love a good, long-winded discourse at ReadWriteWeb.Note: Lest you throw stones at the writer for not being geeky enough herself, she was building LANs and playing the first version of King’s Quest when you were still in diapers. jolie odell Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic…center_img Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Tags:#Open Thread#web 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Marketlast_img read more

Rajasthan passes Bill to give death penalty to child rapists

first_imgRajasthan on Friday became the second State, after Madhya Pradesh, to pass a Bill providing for death penalty to those convicted of raping girls of 12 years and below. The State Assembly passed the Bill seeking to amend the Indian Penal Code with the insertion of new provision by voice vote.A deterrentHome Minister Gulab Chand Kataria, who introduced the Criminal Laws (Rajasthan Amendment) Bill, 2018, in the House, said it was a “progressive legislation” aimed at protecting the girl child by laying down a deterrent punishment, including death sentence, to the offenders.“The Bill will become a law after it gets the Presidential assent. The Rajasthan Assembly has conveyed its feelings to the President. We hope that a similar initiative will be taken by other States and even by the Centre,” Mr. Kataria said after the House rejected a motion moved by some Congress members to circulate the Bill for eliciting public opinion.According to the National Crime Records Bureau’s 2016 report, the cases of crimes against children have seen a steady increase in Rajasthan. The State recorded 4,034 such cases in 2016, which was 3.8% of the crimes against children registered across the country. In 2015, the State had registered 3,689 cases of crimes against children.Mr. Kataria said the Bill had inserted two new sections, 376-AA and 376-DD, in the IPC.Section 376-AA provides for capital punishment or rigorous imprisonment ranging between 14 years and lifelong incarceration. Section 376-DD makes a similar provision for gang-rape of a girl child, while laying down death penalty or imprisonment from 20 years to lifelong incarceration for those convicted of the offence. Each of the persons constituting the gang will be deemed to be guilty of the offence.last_img read more

Tenorio surprised by Romeo’s hit that led to scuffle: ‘He’s not a dirty player’

first_imgEmotions ran high in the 3:28 mark of the fourth quarter with the Gin Kings ahead, 89-73.

The whole time, I was relaxed and just doing my job on defense. I knew what I had to do. I wasn’t playing that well offensively, but I think defensively, I did my part on him and (Stanley) Pringle. I had no intention to hurt him, and if I did, it wasn’t intentional. I’m not a dirty player in the first place. I’m not gonna fight anyone. I have so much respect for him as a player and we’ve been teammates in the national team. But I think he didn’t have to do that if he was frustrated. That’s part of the game.”Tenorio understood where Romeo was coming from, admitting that if it were him on the former FEU guard’s shoes, he may have felt the same frustration. But knowing Romeo’s stature, the former Commissioner’s Cup Best Player of the Conference said that the flashy playmaker should have known better.“Bottomline is if were in his place, I think I would be frustrated also, but I’m not going to retaliate like that. I still have respect for him as a player. He’s a basketball idol. He’s a great player, a very talented player…that’s why I defend him like that,” he said. “A lot of kids, a lot of people are watching him. He’s one of the faces of the PBA, so he should be careful of those dirty plays because he’s not a dirty player. That’s what shocked us the most.”ADVERTISEMENT Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.
