Gloucester took the lead in the first half through Dejon Noel-Williams, before Sam Bell had a penalty saved by Freddie Lapworth.Bradley Webb and Jayden Ali struck within moments of each other to turn the game around just before the hour mark.City now progress into the final four of the competition, and will now face Slimbridge AFC.In a repeat of last summer’s final, the two sides met under the lights at Hartpury College, with Luke Williams naming a youthful side.After a few half-chances from Bell, the game’s first clear cut chance led to the opener. From a free kick, Noel-Williams headed beyond Lochlan Robertson.City went straight up the other end, and had an opportunity to grab an immediate equaliser after Bell was brought down by a Gloucester defender. Bell, himself, took the spot-kick, but saw his effort saved by goalkeeper Lapworth.In the first half, City would come within inches of an equaliser, but fail to find the back of the net. First, Tom Richards would be denied by Lapworth, before a Bell header hit the post.And City’s best chance of the opening half came seconds before the break. Marcus Day beat a number of Gloucester defenders, before cutting inside and shooting, but his effort was narrowly wide of the post.The second half continued in a similar fashion to the first, as City piled on the pressure in search of an equaliser, and they almost had one through Bell, who was yet again denied by Lapworth.But they didn’t have to wait long to be level. A City corner pinballed around the area, before falling to Webb, who smashed in from close range.Then seconds later, City would be in front. A goal reminiscent of the first, Ali fired beyond Lapworth from inside the area.Ali would come close to adding his second and a City third with an audacious half-volley that whistled just wide of the Gloucester post.In the dying embers of the game, Richards hit the post for City, as they almost added a third.Attention for the Under-23s will now switch back to the Professional Development League, as they welcome Colchester United to Failand on Thursday (March 21st).City Under-23s: Robertson, Turner-Williams, Webb, Spark (J.Taylor), H.Smith (C), Ali, Day, Z.Smith (Williams), Rees, Richards, Bell.

Hyderabad: An injury time strike by Robin Singh helped 10-man Hyderabad FC snatch a 1-1 draw against Bengaluru FC in a thrilling Indian Super League match in Hyderabad on Friday. A second minute goal from Sunil Chhetri looked enough for Bengaluru to pick three points before Robin scored against his former side at the death to help the home team pick an important point. Laldanmawia Ralte and Sahil Panwar were handed a start by Hyderabad coach Phil Brown as he made a couple of changes to their line-up from the defeat to Chennaiyin FC. Bengaluru FC coach Carles Cuadrat named an unchanged starting eleven from their 1-0 win over Kerala Blasters.In less than two minutes, the visitors took the lead through Chhetri. Kamaljit Singh’s poor clearance found Ralte whose pass went straight into the path of Chhetri who made no mistake in slotting the ball home. The defending champions saw more of the ball and continued to create openings as Hyderabad struggled to close down their opponents. There was a penalty shout when Harmanjot Khabra’s cross from inside the box was allegedly handled by Gurtej Singh but the referee chose not to pay heed to it.After the half hour mark, Bengaluru could have doubled their lead from a corner. Dimas Delgado’s corner found Albert Serran but the Spanish centre-back could not sort his feet out inside the box. After the break, Hyderabad had a chance from a set-piece but Marcelinho’s attempt sailed over the bar. The home side were reduced to 10 men with Sahil Panwar bringing down Udanta Singh in the 56th minute. This was after Udanta was through on goal off a brilliant run by Ashique Kuruniyan who evaded past a couple of defenders. From the ensuing free-kick, Chhetri tried to sneak one under the wall but the ball fizzled out for Augusto inside the box. His attempt was just about kept out by Kamaljit, much to the relief of Phil Brown.Marcelinho was booked for a dangerous lunge on Raphael soon after but was lucky to get away with just a yellow card. In the 67th minute, Kamaljit came to Hyderabad’s rescue once again as he punched out Udanta’s cross with Kuruniyan lurking at the near post. He followed it up with another save to keep Kuruniyan’s attempt out after Chhetri did ever so well to find him inside the box.Also Read | Indian Super League 2019: Kerala Blasters FC, Odisha FC Play Out Draw In Injury Time ThrillerAugusto, Chhetri and Udanta combined in the final third but neither of the trio could apply the finishing touch. Brown threw Robin Singh into the mix in search for an equaliser and the former Bengaluru striker did not disappoint. Marko Stankovic picked a pass for substitute Ashish Rai who pulled it back from the right for Robin to place it home.

Tags:#news#web Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… richard macmanus Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Related Posts Our poll this week asks what you’d be prepared to pay for the download version of Radiohead’s new album In Rainbows. In the comments to the original post, someone pointed to a Gizmodo report stating that Radiohead will sell In Rainbows via CD early next year, through one of the ‘big four’ record companies. The Gizmodo post wrote that Radiohead had “pulled an about-face that feels like a betrayal and a dirty cop-out”, because many fans would’ve downloaded the album thinking it would only be available via Radiohead’s website. A later update to the Gizmodo post said that Radiohead had “been planning on dropping the album in CD form in ’08 the entire time.” So it wasn’t an about-face, although it also wasn’t reported in many initial news reports – or noted on the Radiohead website itself.A lot of the initial media coverage implied that there wouldn’t be a physical CD release, other than the box set that costs a whopping 40 pounds and will be available in December. There is no mention of a single CD version on the Radiohead website either. So it’s fair to say that a lot of people (myself included) got the wrong message; and paid for the digital download assuming it was the only way to get the single album.According to our poll US$5-9 is the most popular price range that people are willing to pay for the digital download version. That pricing will be virtually all profit to Radiohead, so the download version will make some money for the band. However the eventual single CD release will reach a much wider audience, so the physical CD will end up being the pot of gold at the end of In Rainbows. So much for the big revolution in record sales!But to be fair to Radiohead, they didn’t hide that fact it would be on CD in January – it’s just that the media didn’t report that properly. Probably also some of us Webheads are guilty of over-hyping the Internet download (did I just say that?!) and thinking it would immediately replace the CD. Getting the album a few months ahead of time and for a very low price is still a great deal.There’s still time to take part in our poll this week.

OK, so we launched the Xeon 5500 processor based servers and workstations a couple of weeks ago. While I don’t have direct quotes of support from Brit, Miley, Susan or any country presidents who have signed economic stimulus into law I am pretty confident that if they were ever actually considering purchasing a server or workstation they would come to the conclusion that the new Xeon 5500 platforms would be their best choice.I had the privilege of being at one of the thirty seven different worldwide Xeon 5500 launch events. I was on Wall Street and attended the NASDAQ launch event on March 31st. Based on which data source estimate you look at Financial Services as a whole represents about 20% of the worldwide market for servers. It was also evident when meeting with customers in the NYC area that they are passionate about performance and power consumption. Most of them had received pre-production seed systems and had already done extensive testing prior to this launch event. I have been in Intel’s Server Platform Group for over a decade now and I have never seen so much enthusiasm for a product launch. I won’t rehash the performance benchmarks and performance per watt data. There are many benchmarks, blogs and press articles doing that. What I took away from the conversations was a feeling of optimism from the end users I spoke to. Some people felt that these new products would be what it takes for them to deliver solutions that would give them a performance advantage over their competition. In few markets does that pay off more, and translate almost directly to the bottom line, than in Financial Services. Others felt that these systems would help them continue to add to their existing datacenters without having the need to build a new one. This was due to the performance per watt improvements and the end users ability to replace many old servers and workstations with a few new ones. Lastly, I think human nature being what it is we are seeing that IT professionals want to work on cool new projects. These Xeon 5500 servers and workstations represent a shiny new toy that IT professionals can use to have a material impact on the bottom lines of their companies. To some degree the same applies to virtualization in that it is disruptive and provides a new cost effective way to deliver legacy solutions and also enables flexibility for future growth. The IT folks that I have met who familiarize themselves with virtualization, new hardware and advanced management techniques (power, systems, virtualization) generally are viewed internal to their companies as leaders with visionary capabilities.As we all work through this economic morass I am hopeful that with new technology introductions, and a relentless focus on efficiency, we will all emerge with a greater level of capability and a higher degree of flexibility. I also believe IT will emerge as a key asset of differentiation for companies from Wall Street to Main Street and this will place an even greater burden on delivering solutions to meet those unique needs.

If you head to Amazon India right now, you will notice a teaser for a phone that at first glance would trick you into believing that a new Redmi phone is on its way. However, a second look confirms that this is a phone from Oppo and not Xiaomi and it is called Realme 1. After teasing a new brand earlier this week, it is now confirmed that Realme is a sub-brand of Oppo in a way similar to how Redmi is a sub-brand of Xiaomi. As per the teaser, the Realme 1 is an Amazon-exclusive phone that will launch on May 15.It must be an intentional move by Oppo to name the sub-brand as Realme so as to make it sound similar to Redmi and take a dig at Xiaomi at the same time. Additionally, just as Redmi phones are known for its affordable prices, Oppo is touting the Realme 1 as an affordable phone as well. In fact, the teaser shows the Realme 1 being compared to a “generic” phone that looks awfully like a Redmi 5A. The Realme 1 will sport a unique design with a Diamond Black design on the back. It isn’t clear, however, whether this will be made up of plastic or metal or a combination of both as seen on the Oppo A3. So, it’s possible that the Realme 1 could be a cheaper variant of the Oppo A3.The Realme 1 is being touted as a smartphone “crafted for the youth.” Apart from revealing a single rear camera module, the teaser does not give away much else regarding its design or specs. The promo page on Amazon India also suggests the phone has undergone 10,000 drop test, 100,000 button tests and 10,000 USB tests, among other things. “Realme satisfies the needs of online consumers through unique, exquisite design, leading specs, cutting-edge technology and overall better quality,” said Madhav Seth, CEO Realme India.advertisementThere is no word on the pricing of the phone as yet but the company has stated that its phones will be priced between Rs 10,000 to Rs 15,000, which means the Realme 1 will likely take on the Redmi Note 5 or Redmi Note 5 Pro. It will also likely take on the Asus ZenFone Max Pro M1, which Asus launched recently following the Asus-Flipkart tie-up.Oppo already maintains a strong position in India in the upper mid-range market and the company is now hoping the Realme brand will allow the company to crack the affordable smartphone market as well, but only time will tell if the Realme 1 is capable enough to do the trick.ALSO READ: Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro price hike is good news for Asus ZenFone Max Pro M1

About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Southampton boss Hasenhüttl: Spurs defeat an opportunity missedby Paul Vegasa month agoSend to a friendShare the loveSouthampton boss Ralph Hasenhüttl was disappointed losing 2-1 at ten-man Tottenham on Saturday.Spurs went down to ten men after the dismissal of Serge Aurier in the 31st minute, shortly after taking the lead through Tanguy Ndombele, but Saints fought back to level things up through Danny Ings’s bizarre equaliser.The boss felt it was important his side got in at half time at 1-1, but instead Harry Kane struck the winning goal for the depleted hosts just before the interval.“It’s an opportunity missed – a big chance,” Hasenhüttl said. “We came back into the game but didn’t do enough to make Tottenham struggle.“After the equaliser, 1-1 and one more on the pitch, you must go in at half time and think about what you can change, but we missed this chance to go in with a good feeling, because we gave it away in a very easy way. We can defend it much better, and that kills you.“In the first 25 minutes of the second half, I think it was ok. We really played flexible and created scenes in the box, but the last 20 minutes after the subs was not what I expected it to be.
Annette Francis APTN NewsCharmaine Hester knows that landing a job sometimes takes luck.But the 23-year-old from the Cree Nation of Waskaganish says it’s easier to find employment when she can talk to potential bosses face-to-face.That’s what she was among the more than 160 job-seeking youth at the first Indigenous career fair at Ottawa City Hall on Thursday.“It can be hard, but at times it’s very easy,” said Hester, who moved to Ottawa six years ago. “I’ve gotten really lucky, but that’s why I go to career fairs like this cause … it’s so much easier to just talk to the employer and learn about whatever they have here.”The fair was geared towards First Nations, Metis and Inuit job seekers and included over a dozen presenters from public health sectors, construction groups, non-profit organizations, colleges and universities.Currently, Ottawa has an Indigenous population of close to 13,000 people. And, as in other cities, statistics highlight lower-than-average employment and income rates for Indigenous people.That’s why organizer Amanda Kilabuk, of the Tungasuvvingat Inuit resource centre, says it was important to host the career fair.“It’s a pan-Indigenous run and hosted event, and it’s great to get all the Indigenous youth and mature job seekers out and connect them with Indigenous-friendly organizations,” she said, adding she was pleased with the turnout.While some youth said they were still unsure about what they want to do, many said the career fair helped them to think about their [email protected]
