Micah Parsons father believes his sons tweet not NCAA violations reason Ohio

Five-star defensive end prospect Micah Parsons (left) poses for a photo with former Ohio State running back Eddie George (right) at the set of College GameDay on Sept. 9. Credit: Jack Westerheide | Photo EditorOhio State self-reported NCAA violations that occurred during five-star class of 2018 prospect Micah Parsons‘ official visit to campus Sept. 9. Those violations resulted in the football program self-imposing a stoppage to the recruitment of Parsons and ruled him ineligible.Terrence Parsons, Micah’s father, says there is more to the story. In fact, Terrence Parsons said he believes Ohio State ended its recruitment of his son because of a tweet Micah sent at 11:38 p.m. after the Oklahoma game, in which he said he would consider making a quarterback change from J.T. Barrett to Dwayne Haskins.The tweet immediately drew widespread criticism, with many questioning the appropriateness of a recruit — especially one amid his official visit — calling for a personnel change. He apologized the next day. “After the visit, you know, the next day everything seemed strange because our itinerary said we’re supposed to meet with Urban Meyer at the end of our visit,” Terrence Parsons said. “But that never happened. So when that didn’t happen, I was like, I told his mom, I said, ‘Yeah, I don’t think they want our son no more.’”Terrence Parsons said neither he nor his wife have had contact with anyone from Ohio State since arriving back home in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, on Sept. 10 — except for a brief exchange with head coach Urban Meyer. “I texted them on the 10th, saying thank you and everything. [Defensive line coach] Larry Johnson, he briefly responded. Urban Meyer didn’t respond until that Friday, then he didn’t see my message and said ‘Can I talk later?’ I said, ‘Yeah, what’s good?’ He said, ‘Noon.’ I hit him back around noon. There was no reply or answer and that’s it.” Terrence Parsons said he is not sure whether Micah has had contact with the coaching staff or university. On Sept. 19, Land of 10 reported Micah talked with Meyer.Ohio State self-reported the violations to the NCAA on Sept. 26. But Terrence Parsons said he was never notified by Ohio State of the violations.“We just want to know, if it was a violation and you realized that on the 26th, whether it hit the paper or not, you could at least let us know,” he said.Terrence Parsons said neither he nor Micah knew it would be a violation to go to College GameDay and meet analysts including Kirk Herbstreit. Prospective prospects are not able to have contact with members of the media associated with former student-athletes, and members of the media are not allowed to be present during an institution’s recruiting contact with a prospect, according to the records.“Had we known, no, we wouldn’t have went up on stage,” he said.Terrence Parsons also questioned the accuracy of what Ohio State said in its self-reported violation. The university wrote that Micah Parsons was brought to the set of College GameDay by football recruiting assistant Ed Terwilliger because his parents “requested that Terwilliger stop the tour to take a look” since “the prospect’s parents had never seen College GameDay.” Terrence Parsons called that “a lie,” saying the Parsons were nearby the GameDay set before an Ohio State game in 2016 — the family visited for both the Nebraska and Michigan game; GameDay was on site for the game against the Wolverines. He also said once they arrived at the set, they were fine to record the show on their phones from below and did not ask to come on stage, but were invited.Ohio State did not respond to a request for comment about Terrence Parsons’ claims.Five-star prospect Micah Parsons (wearing an Ohio State shirt) poses for a photo with former Ohio State running back Eddie George on from the set of College GameDay on Sept. 9. Football recruiting assistant Ed Terwilliger can be seen in a red shirt to the right of George. Credit: Jack Westerheide | Photo EditorPhotos also show a potential inconsistency in Ohio State’s account of Micah Parsons’ visit. When the Parsons family came by the set, Ohio State wrote in its NCAA self-violation report, “Terwilliger stayed at the bottom of the stairs as Herbstreit brought the prospect and his father on stage.” However, photos taken that day seem to show Terwilliger, wearing a red polo and khakis, on stage, standing behind Micah Parsons while the recruit took his picture with former Ohio State running back Eddie George. Ohio State also did not respond to a request for comment about this potential inconsistency. Micah Parsons was not the only player on a visit to tweet his thoughts about Ohio State’s quarterback situation. Five-star offensive tackle Jackson Carman tweeted, “OSU game this past weekend, they need to put in my bro [Haskins] and let him work,” two days after Ohio State’s 31-16 loss to Oklahoma. Terrence Parsons said it was unfair for his son to be singled out. Ohio State has continued to recruit Carman.He said his son did not mean he wanted a permanent quarterback change, but wished Haskins entered the game in the second half when the game was out of hand. Micah Parsons apologized for his tweet the morning after the Oklahoma game.On Monday morning, when Micah Parsons posted a video on Twitter naming his top-six schools, he included Ohio State. The defensive end will sign a letter of intent with a school on Wednesday. read more

The ZX Spectrum is 30 today

first_imgYou could say that this month history is repeating itself. The Raspberry Pi is finally starting to ship to users and manufacturers are struggling to keep up with demand. The tiny PC undercuts the competition on price, allows anyone to start programming out the box, and has already demonstrated its ability to play games as well as offer up the potential for a huge range of other software applications. Go back 30 years and you could be saying the exact same thing, only in 1980s the machine being talked about was called the Sincalir ZX Spectrum.Today, April 23, 2012, marks the 30th anniversary of Sir Clive Sinclair’s follow-up to the ZX81. During its lifetime the ZX Spectrum shipped over 5 million units, had 8 different models, and formed the starting point for many a budding programmer who have since enjoyed a career in the software industry.The success of the machine is mainly down to clever engineering. Engineer Richard Altwasser and industrial designer Rick Dickinson had to hit a very low price for the components of the machine, and so went about redesigning everything they could to save money. The end result was a computer that sold for less than half the price of the BBC Micro and significantly cheaper than the Commodore 64, instantly making it the obvious choice for parents to buy for their kids.The ZX Spectrum remained popular as the platform was embraced by games developers, but also due to the fact anyone could create programs for it using the included BASIC language. In fact, the ZX Spectrum has a library of over 23,000 software titles, and new ones are still being produced by enthusiasts working with the hardware. The fact any programs written for the ZX81 also worked on the Spectrum helped, as did Spectrum magazines including type-in programs and tutorials on a regular basis.The machine is credited by some as “launching the UK IT industry.” We are now facing the problem of getting kids interested in programming and software creation again. Hopefully the Raspberry Pi is the device to do that and will one day be classed in the same league as the ZX Spectrum.Read more at BBC News and Wikipedialast_img read more

Congress leads in 3 BJPruled states

first_imgIndia`s Congress party supporters celebrate outside the party headquarters in New Delhi on 11 December, 2018, as vote counting in five Indian states began. Photo: AFPCandidates of India’s opposition Congress on Tuesday took significant lead in BJP-ruled Rajasthan and were inching ahead of the BJP in both Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh in Assembly elections held in five states.Early trends from counting centres also showed that the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) appeared set to retain power in Telangana while the ruling Congress was lagging behind the Mizo National Front (MNF) in Mizoram in state elections that were widely dubbed a “semi-final” ahead of the Lok Sabha battle next year.In line with exit polls, the Congress appeared to be returning to power after a five-year gap in Rajasthan, the country’s largest state which has not re-elected a ruling party in recent times.Congress candidates were ahead in 87 of the 199 constituencies, gaining around 60 seats, while the BJP was leading in 70 seats but heavily losing in over 50 constituencies.And in a reversal of trends, the Congress overtook the BJP in both Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh. Both states the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has ruled for 15 years.Congress nominees were ahead of others in 75 seats and the BJP in 60 in the battle for the 230-member assembly. While the Congress made major gains across the state, the BJP was losing many seats it has held for long.In Chhattisgarh, the Congress was ahead in 44 of the 90 seats, giving a fright to the BJP, whose chief minister Raman Singh was at one time trailing in the vote count from Rajnandgaon before he overtook his rivals later.BJP candidates were ahead in 25 seats in Chhattisgarh.In Mizoram, the ruling Congress was trailing to the MNF, whose candidates were ahead in 16 of the 40 seats. The Congress was ahead in five seats, losing as many as 10 seats.The TRS was poised to retain power in Telangana with a huge majority, with its candidates leading in 80 of the 119 seats, leaving the Congress-led alliance way behind.Congress spokesperson Abhishek Manu Singhvi told the media that he was confident of a Congress victory in Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh and said he had “always been a little more pessimistic” about Telangana.last_img

Angela Bassett to Launch Skin Care Line for Women of Darker Skin

first_imgGolden Globe Award-winning actress Angela Basset. (Jordan Strauss/Invision/AP)Film and TV powerhouse Angela Basset has launched a new skin care line aimed at women of darker skin tones.The Golden Globe Award-winning actress has teamed up with German skin-care specialist Dr. Barbra Sturm to produce “Darker Skin Tones,” a line of skin regiments specifically targeted towards women of color. The products are set to be released worldwide this month exclusively at Harrods’ stores and website.“I want to bring more awareness to skin care and want for people to see what is good for it and ingredients that are helpful, not invasive or irritating,” Bassett told Women’s Wear Daily. “I like them to be pleased when they look in the mirror, to feel good about themselves and the condition of their complexion.”The product line is the result of two years of research which began when Bassett, who said she has struggled with skin-care issues, noticed that Sturm’s products did not address skin issues faced by darker toned women, such as inflammation and hyperpigmentation.“It is, to me, the key factor to causing any skin problems or any problems in our body, but also it is mainly responsible for aging,” Sturm said, according to Women’s Wear Daily. “So I was always very interested in anti-inflammation. Since African-American, or skin of color, problems [revolve] mainly [around] inflammation that is why I especially took care in this range. It has real ingredients, which are scientifically shown to address inflammation.”The products include natural ingredients such as purslane and skullcap that protect DNA cells from age-related dysfunction. They will feature five items including a foam cleanser, an enzyme cleanser, a face cream, a rich face cream, and a hyaluronic serum. Prices for the products range from $58 to $335.Bassett and Sturm said they have future plans to develop a line for teens.“I think the [underlying] problem starts with the teenage years,” Sturm said. “We have to find something just a little more affordable and start at an early age and give them something that they don’t even have to deal with the symptoms in later age.”last_img read more

25 million Android devices infected with Agent Smith a new mobile malware

first_imgTwo days ago, Check Point researchers reported a new mobile malware attack called ‘Agent Smith’ which infected around 25 million Android devices. This malware is being used for financial gains through the use of malicious advertisements. The malware, concealed under the identity of a Google related app, exploited known Android vulnerabilities and automatically replaced installed apps with their malicious versions, without any consent of the user. The primary targets of this malware are based in Asian countries, especially India with over 15 million infected devices, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Saudi Arabia, UK and around 300k devices infected in the U.S. Currently, no malicious apps remain on the Google Play Store. However, before being removed, the malicious apps were downloaded over 10 million times. Researchers have estimated over 2.8 billion infections in total, on around 25 Million unique devices. Image Source: Check Point Research How Agent Smith infected Android apps A preliminary investigation revealed that the app strongly resembled Janus vulnerability abuse which was discovered in 2017 and allowed attackers to modify the code in Android applications without affecting their signatures. These malicious apps had the ability to hide their app icons and claim to be Google related updaters or vending modules. Check Point researchers found that  Agent Smith’s attack also resembled previous malware campaigns against Android apps, like Gooligan, HummingBad, and CopyCat. The Agent Smith malware basically attacks in a step by step manner: Image Source: Check Point Research Firstly, a dropper app attracts a victim to install itself voluntarily. The dropper has an inbuilt Feng Shui Bundle which works as an encrypted asset file. The dropper variants include photo utility, games, or sex-related apps. Next, the dropper automatically decrypts and installs its core malware APK, which is usually disguised as Google Updater, Google Update for U or ‘com.google.vending’.  This core malware APK is then used to conduct malicious patching and app updates. The core malware’s icon is hidden from the user, at all times. Lastly, the core malware extracts the device’s installed app list. If the malware finds apps like Whatsapp, Flipkart, Jio, Truecaller, etc on its prey list (hard-coded or sent from C&C server), the malware extracts the base APK of the target innocent app on the device. Next, the malware patches the APK with malicious ads modules. The base APK is then installed back, making it seem like an update. During the final update installation process, Agent Smith relies on the Janus vulnerability to bypass Android’s APK integrity checks. Finally, Agent Smith hijacks the compromised user apps, to show malicious advertisements. The hackers have used Agent Smith for financial gain only until now. However, with its ability to hide its icon from the launcher and successfully impersonate any popular existing app on a device, Agent Smith can cause serious harms like banking credential theft, shopping, and other sensitive apps. It has also come to light that Google had fixed Janus vulnerability, in 2017 but the fix has not made its way onto every Android phone. “Android users should use ad blocker software, always update their devices when prompted, and only download apps from the Google Play Store”, said Dustin Childs, the communications manager at a cybersecurity company Trend Micro. Many Android users have expressed their concern about the Agent Smith malware attack. Few iOS users, now say that its Google’s security vulnerabilities that make users opt for iOS phones. A Redditor comments, “This is unfortunately why I am still an Apple customer. I do not trust android to keep my information safe. Hey Google, how about I pay you a $15 per month subscription and you stop using spyware on me?” According to the researchers, the malware appears to be run by a Chinese Internet company located in Guangzhou that claims to help Chinese Android developers publish and promote their apps on overseas platforms. Check Point researchers have submitted their report to Google and law enforcement units, to facilitate further investigation. The names of the malicious actors have not yet been revealed. Google has not yet released any official statement warning Android users about the Agent Smith malware attack. For more details about the attack, head over to Check Point research page.

First Digital Surgery Unit in Ireland opens at the Mater Hospital

first_imgIreland’s first Digital Surgery Unit was officially opened at the Mater Misericordiae University Hospital yesterday.This unit will break new medical ground through world-class research into future modes of human-machine collaboration in the surgical theatre. By researching the integration of medicine with new technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI), and by including data analysts as part of surgical teams, this work aims to create new ways to support surgeons to make better decisions, thus promising better outcomes for patients.More broadly, this research is intended to contribute to a deeper bank of knowledge which can then be used to improve the patient experience for the next person undergoing such surgery. This project builds on the field-leading surgical practice which is already established at the Mater, where enhanced digital visualisation assists in precision and safety in colorectal cancer surgery. Personalising operations in this way has already resulted in better care for patients.Colorectal surgery and cancer are the initial focus of the Digital Surgery Unit. Each year in Ireland, more than 2,700 men and women are diagnosed with colorectal cancer, making it the second most common cancer after breast cancer for women, and the second most common cancer after prostate cancer for men. Surgery is the best chance of cure for this cancer; however, surgery has some potential dangers given the risks of infection post-surgery and also risks of damage to important organs such as the bladder or reproductive organs.The research team, made up of collaborators from the Mater Hospital, the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland and IBM Research Ireland, brings together leading research expertise in medicine, dye chemistry, computer science and mathematics with surgical excellence in the Mater. Currently, safe medical dyes, amplified by a surgical video camera, are used to help the surgical team assess the health of tissues surrounding a cancerous area.The next step is augmented cancer tissue identification and comprehension for improved precision in excision, which will help in the repair of the bowel after its removal. The research team will investigate biophysical models, applied mathematics, video analytics and AI alongside novel dye technologies to progress real-time assistive technologies for improved, individualised precision during surgery.Spearheaded by Professor Ronan Cahill, Full Professor of Surgery and specialist in colorectal surgery at the Mater, the Digital Surgery Unit is funded through a government grant from the Disruptive Technologies Innovation Fund. €5.7 million is being made available from the government to support this study “The Future of Colorectal Cancer Diagnosis and Treatment” and a further €2 million from industry.Prof Ronan Cahill said: “Decision-making in surgery is complex, but the Digital Surgery Unit is helping surgeons to analyse huge amounts of data in real-time in order to make the best decisions possible for their patients. This, in turn, leads to maximum accuracy and efficiency ensuring the best cancer clearance which is good for both the patient and their surgical team. Also around one in ten operations of this magnitude have complications and unfortunately, we do lose some patients as a result of such surgical complications. Digital Surgery usage has already ensured for us greater safety in recovery by personalising the decisions to each individual patient and their tissues”.Gordon Dunne, CEO of the Mater said: “The initiative is truly a public-private partnership, bringing together computer programmers and mathematicians in UCD and IBM, chemists in RCSI who can make smarter, more sensitive dyes for use in tests, engineers and information designers in UCD and NCAD and the surgical teams in the Mater who are putting all of these technologies to use for the benefit of our patients.”Dr Pól Mac Aonghusa, Senior Manager from IBM Research – Ireland said: “It is very exciting to be collaborating with the Mater, RCSI and others on this project. This joint research programme is an important first step towards integrating advances in artificial intelligence into surgery. I am especially pleased that the unique expertise to do this is coming together here in Ireland.”Prof Oscar Traynor from RSCI said: “This Digital Surgical Unit showcases leadership in cutting edge research, AI and medicine made possible through collaboration with government, the private sector and one of Ireland’s most acute surgical facilities at The Mater.”The Digital Surgical Unit will initially be focused on colorectal surgery. However, part of the research focus will also be on developing the technology so that others can benefit from it, including in other fields such as liver and lung cancer surgery as well as plastic and reconstructive surgery, among others.last_img read more
