LONGSHOT SI SAGE GOES GATE TO WIRE TO WIN GRADE II, $200,000 CHARLES WHITTINGHAM STAKES BY 2 ½ LENGTHS UNDER SMITH; CASSIDY TRAINEE GETS 1 ¼ MILES ON TURF IN 1:59.48

first_imgTWO-DAY PICK SIX CARRYOVER INTO MONDAY OF $437,763; TOTAL PICK SIX POOL SHOULD APPROACH $2 MILLION ARCADIA, Calif. (May 29, 2016)–With Mike Smith at the controls, veteran Si Sage finally got a firm turf to run on and the 6-year-old French-bred did just that, as he seemingly relished a front-running trip en route to an authoritative 2 ½ length win in Sunday’s Grade II, $200,000 Charles Whittingham Stakes at Santa Anita. Trained by Jim Cassidy and owned by Jed Cohen’s Red Baron’s Barn, LLC, Rancho Temescal and Vayaconsuerte, Si Sage, who was off at 11-1 in a field of 10 three year olds and up, got a mile and a quarter on turf in 1:59.48.“I thought it was a pretty fast dog (with regard to him telling Smith to ‘walk the dog’ during pre-race instructions) as I watched,” quipped Cassidy. “In between being on the outside and going down the hill (immediately after the start), that 47 half made me think we might be in trouble.“If he didn’t impress anybody today, shame on them. He certainly impressed me. I don’t think there’s any problem with him, no matter the distance. He’s just a very honest horse. (Former trainer) Darrell Vienna told me when he retired that this is a very nice horse and he couldn’t have been more right…It brings tears to your eyes to win a race named after such a great man, Charlie Whittingham. It brought a tear to my eye.”In his third start off a roughly one year layoff, Si Sage paid $25.00, $11.80 and $9.40. In winning the Whittingham, he improved his overall mark to 26-5-6-2 and with the winner’s share of $120,000, he increased his earnings to $381,795.“Jim told me he was going to run a big race today,” said Smith. “He got carried out a little bit when we were crossing the dirt (shortly after the start) and we went a bit quicker than I wanted to go, but in doing so he was well within himself, was comfortable, very relaxed and sometimes you’ve just got to let a fast horse be fast.”Although Si Sage carved out what appeared to be a legitimate fractions of 23.15, 47.02, 1:11.23 and 1:35.36, no one made a serious move from behind, including 7-5 favorite Bal a Bali, who appeared to be perfectly positioned while second turning for home, but flattened out through the drive and could only manage a fourth place finish.Completing the Whittingham exacta was another French-bred, Patentar, who swung three-wide turning for home, overtook the favorite inside the sixteenth pole and outran Montego Bay for the place. Ridden by Alonso Quinonez, Patentar was off at 32-1 and paid $25.40 and $11.80.“I saved all the ground (early) and I decided ‘If I’m gonna win it, I’ve got to swing out and take a shot,’” said Quinonez. “I really happy with the way he ran.”Ridden by Drayden Van Dyke, Montego Bay finished third, 1 ¼ lengths in front of Bal a Bali. Off at 20-1, he paid $10.60 to show.There is a two-day Pick Six carryover into Memorial Day, Monday at Santa Anita of $437,763. The total Pick Six pool on Monday is expected to approach the $2 million mark.First post time for a 10-race card on Monday is at 2 p.m. The Pick Six will begin with the fifth race and approximate post time for race five is at 4 p.m. PDT. Admission gates open at 11:30 a.m.last_img read more

first_imgJOSE ORTIZ, FAIR POINT, WINNER: “She was perfect. She broke really well and went down the hill really well for her first time and I did too in the first time for me, also. We got a good position and as soon as we crossed the dirt, I tipped out a little and she gave me a really good run.” TRAINER QUOTES  SHUG McGAUGHEY, FAIR POINT, WINNER: “She turned the corner today. We won at Saratoga and then we came a head short at Keeneland. Those two races were at 5 ½, so I was looking for something 6 ½ and this race came up. She was training great in New York and she liked the trip here and she trained very well here. She did everything right.  I felt if we got the trip, we’d be fine and Jose did a great job. The turf is very fast and very fair. She finished really well on it. I think I want to just give her a break, but she is awfully good right now. She is a very nice filly and we are looking forward to next year.” JOCKEY QUOTES center_img             NOTES: Winning owner Stuart Janney resides in Baltimore County, Md.

Google Introduces Google TV

first_imgRelated Posts Tags:#Google#web A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Google showcased Google TV this morning at its Google I/O developer conference, entering what’s been a growing arena since this year’s Consumer Electronics Show last January. The most obvious feature brought to television by the company that wants to organize all the world’s information is search, but that’s far from where Google’s innovation to bringing the Web to the TV ends – it’s just the beginning.Google TV will be offered as an Internet and wifi enabled box that can connect to a television using an HDMI connection. It will have a keyboard and a “pointing device”, though no more specific information on the hardware was offered.Much of this morning’s demo consisted of showing off the search feature and how users will be able to browse the Web using their television. Searching on Google TV allows users to find content both on the Web and on the TV. From there, they can view web content, view TV content or even set their DVR to record TV shows that air at a later time. The demo got interesting when the presenters started showing off some of the integration with smartphones and the Android marketplace. Not only can Google TV be controlled using a smartphone and speech recognition, but the Google TV hardware will be able to run any Android app in the market place that doesn’t require phone-specific hardware to operate. So Pandora, Twitter, Facebook – anything that’s an app for Android – will be available in a simplified form for the television.Google also previewed a number of integrations and partnerships, such as with the NBA or Netflix. These integrations optimized Web content for the television experience by connecting online schedules with DVR programming in the case of NBA.com or by allowing users to peruse suggested content according to previous Netflix viewings. As Google notes in its blog about Google TV, much of what it showed today is just the tip of the iceberg, as the company is opening up Google TV to developers with an upcoming SDK and API release. We think this is likely where Google TV will be most exciting – the creations of developers using Google developer tools. Instead of having a more closed system, Google’s use of developer tools and integration of the Android market place is going to make Google TV the real rebirth of Web TV. Google is working together with Sony and Logitech to bring Google TV to televisions, Blu-ray players and companion boxes, and you should expect to see it in Best Buy stores by next fall. mike melansoncenter_img 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hostinglast_img read more

Strategy Roundtable For Entrepreneurs: Personalization Remains An Open Problem

first_imgsramana mitra Related Posts I want to start today’s recap with a prayer for Steve Jobs. I just wrote a post on my blog saying, Apple Doesn’t Need Steve Jobs; Tech Industry Does. It sums up my sadness at the thought of our industry not having the privilege of Steve’s thought process. I have, most certainly, drawn tremendous inspiration from him as a thinker and a visionary. I am sure most entrepreneurs have.With this week’s One Million by One Million roundtable, we have moved from the DimDim web conferencing platform to the ViVu video conferencing platform. DimDim, as you know, was recently acquired by Salesforce.com.Better Personal AdvertisingFirst up today was Michael Greenberg presenting Better Personal Advertising. Mike wants to manage online identity on behalf of consumers so that they can maintain multiple identities for different types of sites, say photo, career, etc. and present themselves better in those different contexts.Mike’s customer acquisition strategy is weak at this point, and he also has a rather broad strategy in approaching this market. While I do believe there is an interesting opportunity in identity management, I am going to need to work much more closely with Mike to extract the nuggets out of his idea, and give shape to a viable go to market strategy.Remote StylistThen Kelly Fallis pitched Remote Stylist, a personalized interior decoration advice service coupled with e-commerce in the domain of furniture and furnishings. Kelly’s business has already done about $150,000 in revenue in 2010, which tells me that she has successfully validated at least some of her assumptions. Kelly has a lot of gaps in her customer acquisition strategy, as well as positioning, and she is seeing customers from commercial and residential clients. All this is too broad, and needs tightening up on multiple dimensions.I like the business idea a lot, and in 1M/1M, we know a lot about building Web 3.0 and e-commerce businesses, so I would love to work with Kelly to help her figure out the various nuances of building a successful e-commerce business, especially one that differentiates on personalization. I have repeatedly said that personalization is an open opportunity in Web businesses, and needs to be tapped this decade. For Kelly, a good starting point would be the 1M/1M Curriculum, where we can offer her a lot more on the subject.BizzGenieNext Sajeeva Bora with tekMunk Software Solutions discussed BizzGenie, a business software concept to help retailers manage the decision-making between “shop floors and top floors.” Sajeeva and his cofounders have good domain knowledge of the retail business, but have not yet done sufficient validation of the idea. He is looking for money and naturally, getting rejected by investors for lack of validation. As I have said before, this is not the right stage to look for money. There’s more work to be done to prepare for a funding round.Food Is Our Medicine VisionNwenna Kai then presented Food Is Our Medicine Vision, an online training concept through which she wants to teach community leaders how to create healthier living concepts like organic gardens, etc. in urban areas. Nwenna has surveyed about 200 readers of her blog, and they have told her that they would be willing to pay $400 to $800 for such courses.Nwenna came to the roundtable with the question: What now? Where do I begin? Well, that’s a rather large question to answer in five minutes, but she obviously needs to start validating her business within that group of 200 users who have said they’re willing to pay for her offering.UdemyUp last was Gagan Biyani pitching Udemy, an online marketplace for educators and experts to teach various topics. Gagan has about 150 completed courses on the site so far, and about 10 of those are monetizing. He has run some experiments within the entrepreneurship training vertical, and has seen success when he has brought on known thought leaders. However, he faces the problem that the top tier thought leaders are unwilling to set up shop on his site. They have their own programs under their own brands.Interestingly, Nwenna, who pitched right before Gagan, would be very interested in setting up shop on Udemy, and teaching her concepts and bringing her audience onto Udemy. We did this spot validation at the roundtable, and I believe, Gagan got a customer. However, I’d like to see a more focused, vertical specific go-to-market strategy in Udemy. At some level, Gagan’s focus on entrepreneurship courses doesn’t really align with Nwenna’s target audience.I have thought a lot about how to make an entrepreneurship education and eco-system scalable and accessible to a vastly larger number of people. The answer to that question, I believe, is the 1M/1M Premium Lounge. In fact, at a time when we’re facing severe youth unemployment in America and Europe, and the emerging markets are just starting to build their entrepreneurship eco-systems, we really need to think deeply on how more and more young people can be efficiently, rapidly and cost-effectively be trained in entrepreneurship.You can listen to the recording of today’s roundtable here. Recordings of previous roundtables are all available here. You can register for the next roundtable here. Sramana Mitra is the founder of the One Million by One Million (1M/1M), an educational and incubation program that aims to help one million entrepreneurs globally to reach $1 million in revenue and beyond, build $1 trillion in sustainable global GDP, and create 10 million jobs.

Fire hits houses in Mandaluyong City Now the biggest challenge for the Bolts is consistency in making their shots.All the small thingsWhat makes Ginebra’s league second-best offense work is its efficiency on the floor with its 46.10-percent shooting.Going 50.25-percent from two and 34.87-percent from three, the Gin Kings have been making the most of their shots.But with a series likely to decided on a couple of points, every basket matters, and that’s Ginebra’s achilles heel. The Gin Kings are the league’s worst free throw shooting team, going 64.29-percent from the charity stripe despite hoisting a league-high 434 free throw attempts.Meralco, on the other hand, have been diligent in capitalizing on those free points, going 73.02-percent from the 15-foot line to pair with its 44.68-percent field goal shooting.While a freethrow may just be a point, in a series expected to be down the wire at all times, these small things matter the most for each team.The sixth manIt’s been well-documented how the raucous crowd influence Ginebra games in the past.The Gin Kings have admitted how the audience have helped them get out of danger, while players from the other side also bared being a bit rattled by the rowdy crowd. It’s going to be a battle of adjustments and creativity with both coaches known to stick to a system. With both sides evenly matched, Cone and Black would have to figure out a way to gain the slightest advantage in what promises to be a series to go the distance.Great wall of GinebraAs if Ginebra’s small-ball tactic last season wasn’t dangerous enough, Cone unearthed a scheme opposite of that with the return of Greg Slaughter.With the Cebuano giant back in the fray, the Gin Kings have toyed with their roster and at times, unleashed a killer frontcourt five with a guard joining Slaughter, Japeth Aguilar, Justin Brownlee, and Joe Devance on the hard court.It shouldn’t come as a surprise, too, that Ginebra is second in the league in rebounds with 55.19 boards per game and first in blocks with 7.75 rejections per outing.Expect the Gin Kings to make the most of their strength and pound the ball down low.Bombs away BoltsHow do you counter that size advantage? Meralco’s way is drawing those bigs to the outside.The Bolts have capitalized on the power of the three-ball, topping the league with their 37-percent clip, much to Black’s delight.Baser Amer, Jared Dillinger, and Reynel Hugnatan have been fearless in hoisting those long balls, but Meralco’s arsenal just got deeper with the additions of Ranidel de Ocampo, Garvo Lanete, and Mike Tolomia, all of whom are ready to light it up once their hands wax hot.

Jobs figures tariff exemptions push Toronto US markets into positive

first_imgNorth American markets rallied Friday on strong U.S. jobs figures and a Canadian reprieve from U.S. President Donald Trump’s tariffs on steel and aluminum.The much-anticipated job figures showed U.S. employers added 313,000 jobs in February, while the hourly wage grew a low-than-expected 2.6 per cent compared to a year ago.The hiring showed continued strength in the economy while the wage growth — lower than the 2.9 per cent reported a month ago — tempered inflation fears, said Manulife Asset Management portfolio manager Cavan Yie.“The jobs data was very very positive, and in combination with that, the wage or inflation data was also positive in that it was lower than expected. So we’re not seeing the same level of wage growth that we saw in the previous month.“The markets sold off several weeks ago on the fears of higher-than-expected inflation, and what that meant for company margins and the fed potentially raising more than expected this year,” said Yie.The job numbers, along with Trump indefinitely exempting Canada and Mexico from the metal tariffs, helped U.S. markets recover from recent losses.Canada also posted positive jobs numbers Friday. The economy added 15,400 net new jobs last month and the unemployment rate edged down to 5.8 per cent — but the gains were due to a surge in part-time work that offset a heavy decline in full-time positions.In New York, the Dow Jones industrial average was up 440.53 points to 25,335.74. The S&P 500 index was up 47.60 points to 2,786.57 and the Nasdaq composite index was up 132.86 points to a record close of 7,560.81.The S&P/TSX composite index closed up 39.11 points to 15,577.81, led by energy and materials.The Canadian dollar closed at 77.88 cents US, up 0.52 of a US cent. The loonie got a boost after Canadian industries learned they would be exempt from the tariffs, said Yie.“There was a huge relief rally in the loonie, reflecting Canada’s exemption from aluminum and steel tariffs. The loonie had taken quite a dive in the face of those comment initially as Canada as well all know is a major steel exporter to the U.S.”The April crude contract closed up US$1.92 to US$62.04 per barrel and the April natural gas contract was down two cents at US$2.73 per mmBTU.The April gold contract ended up US$2.30 to US$1,324 an ounce and the May copper contract was up six cents to US$3.14 a pound.-With a file from Associate Presslast_img read more

Make summers trendy with prints

first_imgIn this fashion savvy world, most trends keep changing with time, but there are a few items in your wardrobe that can never be replaced – including denims, LBDs, prints. And, if we particularly talk about ‘prints’, they always stay with fashion and never fail to make a statement.No doubt, print individually is the safest style to opt for, but when styling it with other print (print on print trend), one really needs to be careful. According to style experts, pairing different patterns require an artistic vision, as it involves a lot of risk. That is why a lot of people are scared to experiment with such outfits. Though there are no listed rules to explore this trend, just make sure that they compliment one another. Also, summer is definitely the best season to flaunt fun print-on-print outfits. So, let’s see what all we can try to make our outfits stand out: Play safe and go for the most basic and universal print patterns like animal prints, stripes, geometrical patterns, polka dots, floral, checkered, etc. The most essential thing while experimenting with prints is to stay in the same colour family. As long as the prints have at least one colour in common, you can use contrasting colours. Match colours, not prints! If you want to make a bold choice of mixed pattern outfits, you have to be very careful with what you choose. To start with, keep in mind that some patterns don’t look good with one another. And, the simplest trick is to mix stripes with floral print. If you want to flaunt a mixed print outfit in a softer version you can add printed shoes, bags, and accessories to your regular outfit. One more way to don print this season is to pick pieces in vibrant colours. Eye-catching patterns in vivid colours will make the boldest outfits. These outfits are hard to miss and will surely catch eyeballs wherever you show up. Try the same print but in different sizes. One thing you can note is that graphic prints always match with each other. In this regard, you can also play with florals while matching your outfits; just go with bigger, more prominent ones. Though there is nothing wrong with combining prints from various categories, try to be subtle and make sure you don’t go over two prints at a time. Else, it will end up in a messy look and surely, that is not what we want, right? Speaking of the rules, the most important point is to be confident and comfortable in what you wear. So this Summer, pick the best prints, revamp your wardrobe and give major fashion goals to people around you.last_img read more

Egypts political rivals in psychological warfare

first_imgCAIRO  –“Each of the two camps seeks to achieve quick victories and control the volatile political scene,” Ghobashi said.With the trial of Egypt’s ousted president Mohamed Morsi few hours away, the Egyptian army and the Muslim Brotherhood continued their psychological warfare to control the political narrative in this volatile country.“Egypt has been in the grip of a psychological warfare since Morsi’s ouster, but this warfare has intensified in the past few days,” Mukhtar Mohamed Ghobashi, the deputy head of the local think-tank Arab Center for Political and Strategic Studies, told Anadolu Agency.“Each of the two camps seeks to achieve quick victories and control the volatile political scene,” he added. Morsi’s is due to stand trial on Monday on charges of inciting the killing of peaceful demonstrators outside the presidential palace in December.It will be his first public appearance since his ouster by the powerful military on July 3.Ghobashi said both parties have their own problems.The army and its supporters, on one hand, are trying to present Egyptians with a convincing alternative to the Muslim Brotherhood whose year in power spawned public resentment towards the group.But they have been unable to do that because of the difficult economic problems that continue to trouble the country.The pro-Morsi National Alliance for the Defense of Legitimacy, on the other hand, has set the bar high with their demand for the reinstatement of Morsi, Ghobashi added.“This is difficult to achieve given the current political conditions in Egypt,” he asserted.“This, both camps have resorted to psychological warfare to make quick gains and control the political narrative” before Egyptians head to polling stations to vote on the constitution and later elected a new parliament and president, Ghobashi said.He cited Interior Minister Mohamed Ibrahim’s recent remarks that the Muslim Brotherhood had almost lost its ability to mobilize protesters.The minister also sounded confident about his ministry’s ability to secure Morsi’s trial, citing their recent success in arresting deputy chairman of the Muslim Brotherhood’s Freedom and Justice Party (FJP) Essam al-Erian.“It will be a normal day,” Ibrahim argued.-SteadfastnessThe National Alliance for the Defense of Legitimacy, however, has vowed to stage unprecedented rallies on Morsi’s trial day.“The coup leaders are up for a week of mass demonstration,” Ali Khafagi, the FJP Giza youth leader, told Anadolu Agency.“We will show the world that we have a cause and that we are not backing down,” he added.“Our continuing protests far exceed their abilities and that is why they have resorted to imposing emergencies and imposing a curfew,” Khafagi suggested.Experts say despite the heavy-handed crackdown on pro-Morsi protests, which saw hundreds of supporters killed and detained, the pace of demonstrations has not slowed down, wearing out security forces and affecting the national economy negatively.The alliance, Morsi’s main support block, has urged supporters to gather outside the courthouse where Morsi would be tried.It also urged democracy advocates to rally outside Egyptian embassies and consulates around the world.Deputy Chairman of the Islamic Party Magdy Salem, also a leader of the Alliance, has reiterated their determination to defeat the “military coup” against Morsi.He said the army-installed administration uses all legal and illegal tactics to break the will of Morsi’s supporters.“But these practices only make us stronger,” Salem told Anadolu Agency.By Hagar al-Desoukilast_img read more
