first_imgBurbank Telling the difference Pornography in the Valley and possible HIV epidemic – you call that real news? We can’t get you to report on Rep. Howard Berman not even bothering to vote one way or the other for the Iraq funding bill. Now, that was real news. Can’t you tell the difference? No wonder newspaper readership is going down. We are forced to look elsewhere for the real news. You need to clean up your act, Daily News! – Karen Jackson Valley Village JFK Airport plot Re “Muslims in America” (Viewpoint, June 3): Ironically, the same day that Hussam Ayloush’s commentary appeared in the Daily News, deflecting criticism of Muslim American support for terrorism, a plot by Muslims to blow up the JFK Airport in New York City was foiled. Ayloush can protest all he wants, but we Americans can see it is not blond, blue-eyed Norwegians who seek the destruction of the “infidels.” – Shari Goodman Calabasas Immigration bill As the costs ($1.3 trillion), the amnesty and impunity of Bush’s immigration bill become more apparent to the citizens, George Bush displays impudent and petulant behavior by calling opponents “fearmongers.” After 40 years of “delegation government,” the voters and citizenry are now awake. Bush and the Senate and Congress truly don’t know how to adjust. The alarms are being sounded. The truth is in the air. No North American Union for us! Isn’t that what you have been after now, really? – Thomas Wierzbicki Van Nuys Thin blue morale Re “Crowd pleaser” (Our Opinions, June 1): The troika, consisting of the Daily News, our mayor, and the LAPD chief, seems focused in the wrong direction: punish the cops and ignore those who started the May 1 riot. Is an intensive manhunt for the riot perpetrators in progress? That would usually be the highest priority. But, the Daily News has not mentioned it so can we assume that the perpetrators are not being sought? In the interest of fair reporting, the Daily News should now interview a significant number of officers to determine how low the troika has caused the morale of our thin blue line to drop. – Dominick Odorizzi Northridge Weakest generation Re “Patient, government differ in TB accounts” (June 2): The man who has drug-resistant TB is a selfish liar. He says he didn’t know he was infectious and didn’t think he was doing anything wrong. He took a plane to Canada and drove into the U.S. by car. If he thought all was well he would have just gotten a direct flight home. These are not the actions of a man that has no clue he is contagious. These are the actions of a man that knows he is doing something wrong and doesn’t care how many he puts at risk as long as he is treated and saved. As soon as he is cured, he belongs in jail. Welcome to modern, excuse-laden, anything-goes liberal America. Truly the weakest generation. – Craig S. Hawley Reseda Bratton’s cop-out Re “LAPD gets new unit on crowds” (May 31): The article said the police chief acknowledged failures in the department. Chief Bratton also stated, “I cannot minimize the deficiency of our department and some of its officers.” Is the chief telling the citizens of Los Angeles it took him five years before he realized the (problem) deficiency within the department? It appears to me that the chief is not tuned in to what’s happening on his watch. And know Chief Bratton wants five more years. – Mort Sherman Woodland Hills Must be tough Because of the tremendous impact that journalists (through the power of video editing) could have on their careers and personal lives, the policemen that roughed up some newspeople in MacArthur Park must be brain-dead. Anyone who wears a face-covering of any kind should be detained and checked out. And any parent who takes their child to an event with a potential for violence should be turned over to Children’s Services. Way to back up the good guys, Chief Bratton. It must be tough riding on Antonio’s political coattails. Best to avoid a mirror for a while. – Bill Fleming Burbank Deserved it I was totally shocked by seeing that 47 percent of respondents to your poll question “Would you regulate the use of your fireplace if it helped clean up our air?” answered “No.” I think if our species disappears, we will have deserved it. I cannot begin to comprehend the shortsightedness of people. I walk my dog daily in my neighborhood and see my neighbors putting in new water-guzzling rose bushes and sod lawns, oblivious to our looming water shortage. These are the same folks who buy gas-guzzling cars. Come on, folks … it’s time to begin thinking “sustainable” … getting our needs met without compromising the ability of future generations to meet theirs. If we poison our air and deplete our water, what legacy have we left our children and their children? – Alan Pollack Woodland Hills Few flags This past Memorial Day very few flags were flying and especially at places of business that make their living in America, I would like to commend the 76 station at Parthenia and Balboa streets for their patriotic display. In your June 2 article on a random girl in a Volvo saving the life of James Woods, why could not Woods or Lauren Francis, or the truck driver, get a 911 call through? Does anyone know? – Gloria J. Aguilar Northridge Benching Kobe Re “A time out,””Misbehavin,” and “Let Kobe go” (Your Opinions, June 1): Ya all got it all wrong, well, except John Andersen who only has it partly right when he states “Bench him for a season.” I personally think that Kobe should be kept for the remaining four years on his contract and be relegated to the bench for the entire time. That way the players who play as a team can carry the team. I’d rather see four years of losses than Jerry giving in to this spoiled brat. – Richard M. Stuber Sun Valley No right or wrong A dispute over states’ rights polarized the Continental Congress and split the nation into warring political parties. Since that time we’re never right or wrong. We’re either Republican or Democrat. – Fred Coble North Hills160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Arleta Distracting Re “Driven to distraction” (Viewpoint, June 3): In Sunday’s Viewpoint, you printed Jonathan Dobrer’s insightful article about America’s addiction to cheap, mindless, instant gratification. Lo and behold, you also carried three entire pages (including the front page) telling us everything we didn’t need to know about the porn industry in the Valley, with a promise of more articles on the way. Go figure … – Jennifer Rabuchin Re “Porn in the Valley” (June 3): Your near-full-paper ad on porn in the Valley was a little much. Did you mean to extol porn or condemn it or just report on it? As it turned out, it looked like an advertisement for porn – no condemnation that I could see. The world would be better off with less porn and less of your providing a media for the advertising of it. We know it is here; we just need to have some political will and effort to rid the world of it. – Bob Sharp last_img read more

Exclusive – Former Man United star casts doubt over Januzaj’s Red Devils future

first_imgFormer Manchester United winger Keith Gillespie fears for Adnan Januzaj’s future at the club.Louis van Gaal has splashed the cash this summer, pushing the Belgian flyer further down the pecking order at Old Trafford.And, while the 19-year-old has made substitute appearances in all of United’s fixtures this season, the former Northern Ireland star claims his time at the club may be coming to an end.When asked whether the ex-Anderlecht youngster may have to go out on loan or move on, Gillespie said: “Yes.“Unfortunately, with the embarrassment of riches Manchester United have at the moment, he’s not first choice.“He’s still young though and is learning the game. He needs games to bring out his potential.“Last season was very poor for United, but he was probably the one shining light in a team which didn’t perform.“Just look at the players in the team now, the likes of Angel di Maria, Juan Mata, Wayne Rooney, Robin van Persie and Radamel Falcao.“He’s a winger and I’m not sure he can adapt and play as a wing back. He needs to play further forward. It’s very difficult to fit him in to the system.”last_img read more

Zimbra: Google Apps Not Quite Ready For Enterprise

first_imgWhy Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Tags:#news#web#Web Office A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Related Posts center_img richard macmanus Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting We reported earlier today about Microsoft’s 10-point list on why Google Apps isn’t ready for the enterprise. Now Zimbra, an innovative Web Office startup focused on messaging and collaboration, has added to the anti-Google Apps chorus – specifically citing Sarbanes-Oxley compliance issues. Zimbra says that since all Google docs and files are stored on Google’s servers, public companies would face big Sarbanes-Oxley compliance issues if they deployed Google Apps. [Update:Bob Warfield points out that “there is no requirement by SOX that data has to be on a company‚Äôs own servers, just that the data be carefully controlled and audited.”] The solution? You guessed, it: deploy Zimbra instead.Zimbra told R/WW that their messaging and collaboration platform “provides enterprise customers with freedoms that Google Apps just can’t provide, including the ability to archive for compliance purposes.” Enterprise customers can use Zimbra as a hosted service or deploy it on-site. It also has offline functionality, which Google doesn’t offer with most of their apps (although with Google Gears, it can be developed).Further, says the feisty startup, while Google can only produce “an unnamed telco” as its first enterprise customer, Zimbra boasts Comcast (the largest ISP in the US) and Embarq (formerly Sprint LLC) as customers. Other Zimbra customers include Raytheon, H&R Block, and Century 21 – who use Zimbra for messaging, document sharing, and enterprise collaboration.So Google is taking it from all sides currently – from arch-rival Microsoft, and Web Office startups. It shows just how much of a threat Google is in office software.last_img read more

Google Lets Advertisers Target Mobile Devices

first_imgWhy Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market frederic lardinois Tags:#advertising#news#web Related Posts center_img Google today announced that it has added a new option for AdWords advertisers to specifically target iPhones, T-Mobile’s G1, and other mobile devices that have ‘real’ Internet browsers. Unlike the standard mobile AdWord ads that were targeted to appear on mobile web sites, this new feature will allow advertisers to target any mobile device with a full HTML browser. Google also points out that it is seeing ‘a lot’ of searches from iPhone and G1 users and the iPhone drove more traffic to Google.com during last year’s holiday season than any other mobile platform.As AdWeek reported in October, Google has been working on this feature for a while now. One possible implementation of this new functionality, according to AdWeek, would be to allow an airline to not just advertise its services on Google’s search engine, but to also include a phone number, knowing that mobile users would just have to click on one link to initiate a call to make a reservation.It makes good sense for Google to get start offering this new feature now, as mobile Internet usage on smartphones and other mobile devices is starting to take off. Other companies like AdMob and JumpTap have already carved out some lucrative niches for themselves, so Google is clearly trying to protect some of its home turf here.

Gimme, gimme: Automakers and telecoms spar over spectrum

first_imgRelated Posts Follow the Puck What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … Ryan Matthew Pierson Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfacescenter_img As self-driving cars start to find their footing on U.S. roadways, a group of telecom companies are making moves to have spectrum previously allocated to the auto industry reallocated for use in Wi-Fi. Their argument: that the auto industry hasn’t used that spectrum enough. This coming at a time when that spectrum is set to be more important than ever before.The Federal Communications Commission allocated spectrum within the 5.9 GHz band for use by the auto industry in hopes of clearing the path for future vehicle-to-vehicle communication. Several major telecom companies are arguing that this spectrum is better used for Wi-Fi as Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) devices are not currently utilizing that spectrum as much as they believe warrants dedicated bandwidth.See also: UK regulator creates new ioT spectrum licenseThis argument was detailed in an open letter to the White House sent in late April, and co-signed by over a dozen recognizable companies including: Dell, Google, Broadcom, Qualcomm, Intel, and others.In the letter, these companies cite the growing need for spectrum for unlicensed use by the public and that this growth is creating what they referred to as an unlicensed spectrum crisis.Let ITS and Wi-FI share the spectrumTheir proposal? To open up that band for unlicensed usage so that both ITS and Wi-Fi signals can share the spectrum.On May 5, a counter letter was send to the White House by more than 50 members of the Auto industry and state transportation sector stating its case for maintaining the 1999 FCC ruling. This letter states that spectrum sharing has already been taking place, and that the transportation sector has been working closely with the Wi-Fi industry to create a solution that has already been brought to several key government agencies for testing in 2016.However, giving up that band for free unlicensed usage would, according to their statement, limit the capability of Dedicated Short Range Communication (DSRC) systems to reduce injuries and fatalities on the roadways.It went on to cite the fact that technologies that best utilize this band for the prevention of accidents in transportation are now just starting to come about, and opening this spectrum now would result in the setback of a decade worth of innovation.The debate continues as to whether the auto industry is unfairly spectrum squatting or that the telecom industry moving in on that 75 megahertz of spectrum at the risk of public safety.

Philly 360° Playlist: 2Mil Teams Up With Aaron Camper For A Cover Of “Not For Long”

first_img A brand new group is on the scene and they go by the name of 2 Mil. Two talented artists in their own right, Frenchie and Morgan have teamed up for a refreshing new sound. For this week’s Philly 360° Playlist, we’re featuring their collaboration with singer/songwriter Aaron Camper, “Not for Long.” “Not for Long” is a part of the group’s “Covers” series. 2 Mil has released new covers each week and their latest hit is a cover of the BOB and Trey Songz duet. All three voices flow together seamlessly as they weave in and out of the wordy verses. The track is smooth and gives you a nice summer feel, which we are definitely feeling during the cold winter weather. Beloved crooner Aaron Camper adds a nice dynamic to the song’s quick paced lyrics. Originally a rap the three vocalists smooth it all the way out. 2 Mil popped up on the scene just around the turn of the New Year. Frenchie is a familiar face on the local music scene and has been building buzz performing around the city as a solo act. And the group’s other member Morgan will be recognizable as one of the Gogettes dancing alongside her sister GoGo Morrow. Their voices are thick and sultry and a nice addition to the current musical landscape. Along with “Not For Long,” the duo has also covered popular tunes from Chris Brown and Miguel as well. They’re edgy style and on point vocals have them tipping off the radars as artists to watch here in Philly. They rap, sing, and can dance with the best of them. We’re looking forward to hearing a lot more from this group soon and watching them grow. Check out their cover of “Not for Long” below and let us know what you think in the comments. 2Mil(Courtesy of 2Mil)last_img read more
