Ohio State basketball senior guard William Buford, sophomore forward Jared Sullinger and sophomore guard Aaron Craft were named to the preseason John Wooden Award watch list, according to a Monday athletic department release.Student-athletes’ eligibility for the Wooden Award is also dependent on their academic performance as players must maintain at least a cumulative 2.0 GPA.In an email to The Lantern, athletic department spokesman Dan Wallenberg said, “Having our student athletes nominated for the premier award in college basketball is certainly an honor. William, Jared and Aaron have demonstrated the characteristics Wooden exemplified.”Sullinger is familiar with the Wooden Award proceedings and was a finalist for the award last year. Sullinger averaged 17.2 points per game and 10.2 rebounds per game to help lead the Buckeyes on their most recent NCAA tournament run.Buford, the lone senior on the Buckeyes’ roster, averaged 14.4 points during the 2010-11 campaign while Craft scored 6.9 points per game and 4.8 assists per game.Last season, OSU finished with a 34-3 record and claimed both the Big Ten’s regular season and tournament championships. The Buckeyes’ NCAA tournament run came to an end with a 62-60 loss to Kentucky in the Sweet 16.OSU, which lost its incoming freshman No. 1 recruit LaQuinton Ross after he was ruled academically ineligible on Sept. 26, will tip-off its regular season on Nov. 11 at 9 p.m. against Wright State at the Schottenstein Center. read more

Nintendo has revealed that it has sold off a majority of its ownership in the Seattle Mariners.They started negotiations to do so in April and it’s just been announced that they have sold their stake to minority shareholders for $661 million, dropping their stake from over 50 percent to 10 percent. The sale will no doubt be good news to Nintendo investors, who have seen the company struggling in recent years as the Wii U failed to live up to its promise. A recent surge in share price attributed to Pokemon Go has helped, however.But this is truly the end of an era. Legendary Nintendo CEO Hiroshi Yamauchi first invested in the Mariners back in 1992 when they were dominating the U.S. market. By buying into the most American of pastimes (besides gaming, of course) Nintendo managed to not only save a failing baseball team, but paved the way for Japanese players to come play in the MLB.Local representatives originally approached the then-thriving Nintendo about the investment, as they were worried that their waning fortunes would make the team relocate to Tampa. Yamauchi used his own money- $125 million of it- “in order to show Nintendo’s appreciation to the U.S. for helping Nintendo do business in the country, and to contribute to the local residents and area.”It wasn’t an easy sale. The MLB initially freaked out about the idea of a Japanese company owning a controlling stake in one of their teams, and only agreed to it with the understanding that Yamauchi will be a passive partner and not have a say in day-to-day operations.That said, former Chairman of Nintendo of America (and Nintendo Power comic icon) Howard Lincoln eventually became CEO of the team, handling day-to-day operations after all. The Mariners had some of their best seasons ever following the sale, but Yamauchi famously never attended a single game, not even when they traveled to Tokyo for exhibition games.In 2004 he transferred ownership to Nintendo of America proper, and after his death in 2013 it was wondered if that would mark the end of it. Nintendo kept the stake thanks to current CEO Satoru Iwata, but after his death last year (as well as Lincoln’s desire to relinquish “day-to-day leadership for the team”) the decision was finally made.As for the Mariners themselves, despite a recent slump they’ve been on a hot streak, winning seven of their last 10 games. This sale will mean that they get to stay in Seattle once again, where Nintendo’s presence will always be felt. read more
Clark County commissioners voted Wednesday morning to consolidate two Clark County Public Health administrative positions and eliminate two other department positions, saving the county nearly $500,000 this biennium. The commissioners — in their role as the Board of Health — unanimously approved a proposal to combine the public health director and county health officer positions into one position, health officer/administrator. The proposal also eliminated a vacant coordinator position and will eliminate an administrative assistant position scheduled to become vacant after a July 31 retirement.The staffing changes will save the department about $490,000 in salaries and benefits this biennium, which ends Dec. 31, 2014.The public health leadership team proposed the changes in response to pending and potential budget cuts, said Marni Storey, interim director of Clark County Public Health. The changes will save the department money without directly impacting program services, she said.Commissioner Steve Stuart praised the leadership team for setting an example for the department, which has had staffing levels cut in half in recent years.“You have shown imagination in being able to provide services with vastly fewer staff,” Stuart said.The county’s public health director position has been vacant since April 1, when former director John Wiesman left the county to become Washington Secretary of Health. read more

Popular on Variety The app previously integrated with YouTube, SoundCloud and Spotify. On Thursday, AmpMe added an integration of Deezer, allowing anyone who pays for Deezer’s premium tier to synchronize their music across multiple phones and Bluetooth speakers connected to those phones.“We are excited to partner with AmpMe and to help get the party started by letting people stream their favourite songs together,” sai Deezer’s chief content and product officer Alexander Holland in a statement. Integrating Deezer was an important step towards taking AmpMe to Europe and Latin America, Archambault said. “It allows us to grow internationally.”AmpMe also announced an integration with Sonos Thursday that’s based on Sonos’ recent addition of Airplay 2 to some of its newer speaker models. Using AirPlay, AmpMe users can now cast music to their compatible Sonos speakers, and then synchronize that music with other mobile devices connected to Bluetooth speakers. The result: Sonos speakers and Bluetooth speakers, paired for multi-device, multi-room audio.To avoid latencies, AmpMe uses a synchronization process that involves playing frequencies inaudible to the human ear, which are then analyzed by all the phones participating in a so-called AmpMe party. The company has also begun to assemble a database of phone models and Bluetooth speakers to identify each device’s unique latency issues, and it is using machine learning to train its own latency prediction model and further fine-tune multi-device audio playback. AmpMe’s app has been downloaded more than 13 million time since its launch, Archambault said. He declined to comment on the number of monthly active users, but said that AmpMe had driven more than 1 million new subscribers to streaming services like Spotify. The company hasn’t been monetizing its product yet, but Archambault said that its monetization may ultimately include striking commercial deals with music services to get compensated for growing their subscriber base.AmpMe raised a $8 million Series A round of funding from Relay Ventures, Investissement Québec, Slaight Music, OMERS Ventures, Townsgate Media, Anges Québec, Real Ventures and others in 2016. Altogether, the company has raised around $10 million of funding so far. CREDIT: Courtesy of AmpMe AmpMe, which allows its users to synchronize music playback across phones and Bluetooth speakers, has struck a partnership with Deezer, adding the music service to its app. AmpMe also launched a new Sonos integration Thursday, which makes it possible to pair some Sonos systems with Bluetooth speakers.AmpMe first launched its mobile app in 2015, promising mobile phone users an easy way to play the same songs synchronized across multiple handsets as a way to make up for the flimsy speakers integrated into most phones. Since then, the company has added the ability to also synchronize multiple Bluetooth speakers — a kind of multi-room audio system on the cheap, if you will. “We are trying to be the sound system for the 99%,” said CEO Martin-Luc Archambault in a conversation with Variety this week. ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.

After a year, Motion Stills lands on Android by Martin Brinkmann on July 21, 2017 in Google Android – 1 commentMotion Stills, an experimental short video creation application by Google, has been released by the company for the Android platform.Google launched Motion Stills in June 2016 for iOS, and has now brought the application to Android as well.Google lists the application as experimental and hints that it may integrate the functionality into company products such as Google Photos if it is well received.Motion Stills for AndroidMotion Stills is a simple application that you may use to create short videos. These videos may be turned into animated gifs or videos, and may be shared afterwards using any of the apps installed on the device, or saved locally.The application itself is easy to use. It displays two capture modes basically when you start it. Motion Still is the default capture mode. If you tap on it, a short, three seconds or so, video is recorded automatically on activation.There is no option to change the recording length, and no other options to alter the output.The second feature is called fast forward. Fast Forward captures videos up to a length of one minute but condenses it so that it plays in a matter of seconds.The video capturing uses image stabilization, and you may switch between both modes when playing the recorded videos on the device. Google added an improved algorithm to the application designed to protect against accidental pocket shots and camera shakes.All the capturing and processing is done on the local Android device; Google notes that an Internet connection is not required when using the application.Motion Stills adds all videos that you capture using the application as vertically scrolling thumbnails that you can flip through.While that is okay-ish for light use, I cannot imagine that this works well once you have captured the first twenty or so clips using the application.Several users of the application complained that the app lacks options to delete recorded clips. Motion Stills does come with a delete option actually, but it is hidden from plain sight. You need to swipe the video that you want to delete to the left to delete it.A swipe to the right highlights another feature; the ability to join multiple clips. That is about it when it comes to options though. The preferences list only three options: change the GIF quality, switch repeats from once to thrice, and select whether to play a single clip at a time in the gallery.The only other option that is provided is to tap on a video that you have captured in the past to share it, or save it to the local device. You get to select the format — video or gif — but that is the extend of that.VerdictMotion Stills is an experimental application and it shows. It may appeal to users who use their phone predominantly for sharing, especially to social media, but there are better applications for that. Better, because they don’t limit you as much when it comes to the capturing, and may offer better editing options as well.My guess is that Google will monitor closely how the application is received. It will abandon the application eventually and may integrate some of its functionality into other company products.Now You: Which applications do you use for recording videos?

In an article on Friday.Though Kerala Police have made a tentative plan to deploy 16000 men in batches during the two month-long season senior officers said they mayfail to enable the entry of young women recounting how the police force crumbled when the temple was opened for the monthly pooja in October and special pooja on 5 November The state police force’s strength is simply not enough to manage the security as at least a lakh devotees are expected to visit the shrine every day during the season In addition to the protesters the police will also have to take into consideration that terrorists and extremists might likely infiltrate the Hill under the guise of devotees and create trouble Intelligence agencies at the Centre and in various states have already warned of this possibility The Sabarimala special commissioner has warned that if the police use force it could lead to stampede resulting in death and injury to devotees at the shrine the trek to which is literally a bottleneck With inputs from TK Devasia Modern Jews may traditionally trace their ancestry to the Holy Land but a new genetic study finds otherwise A detailed look at thousands of genomes finds that Ashkenazim—who make up roughly 80% of the world’s Jews including 90% of those in America and half of those in Israel—ultimately came not from the Middle East but from Western Europe perhaps Italy Most mainstream historians regard Ashkenazim as the descendants of Jews who moved into central Europe from the Middle East sometime before the 12th century CE Ashekenazim like most members of this religious cultural and ethnic group traditionally trace their ancestry to the ancient Israelites The Israelites in turn arose between 3000 and 4000 years ago in the Middle East according to both Biblical sources and archaeological evidence They dispersed after the Romans destroyed their Second Temple in Jerusalem in 70 CE Recent genetic work has supported this traditional view Two studies one led by geneticist Harry Ostrer of the New York University School of Medicine and the other by geneticist Doron Behar of the Rambam Health Care Campus in Haifa Israel traced the three main Diaspora groups—Ashkenazim Sephardim from Spain and Portugal and Oriental Jews from the Middle East—to people who all lived in the Middle East about 2000 years ago The Ostrer study used DNA from the nucleus of the cell in its analyses and the Behar study used both nuclear and mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA); the latter comes from tiny bodies in the living cell that provide it with energy Many other researchers considered these results to be definitive at the time Yet there were lingering questions Ostrer and Behar had samples from only a couple of hundred Jews for example And while the Behar group identified four major mtDNA “founder groups” for the Ashkenazim all supposedly with roots in the Middle East it was able to trace only about 40% of Ashkenazi ancestry overall So a different team of scientists led by geneticist Martin Richards at the University of Huddersfield in the United Kingdom embarked on a new search for the origins of these four founder groups The team focused on mtDNA which is often employed in genetic studies because it is easier to sequence and allows analysis of huge population samples However mtDNA is inherited through the mother and not the father so it reveals the history of maternal lineages only Geneticists have identified certain mtDNA markers that define lineages in different parts of the world Behar’s group had traced the Jewish founder groups to two mtDNA genetic lineages called haplogroup K and haplogroup N1b The Jewish lineages were nested within these two larger groups which include both Jews and non-Jews So Richards and his colleagues first set out to understand the history of these broader lineages They analyzed about 2500 complete and 28000 partial mtDNA genomes of mostly non-Jews worldwide plus 836 partial mtDNA genomes of Ashkenazi Jews to see where the Ashkenazim fit into the overall history The result was very clear-cut the authors say: As reported online today in Nature Communications more than 80% of Ashkenazi mtDNAs had their origins thousands of years ago in Western Europe during or before Biblical times—and in some cases even before farming came to that part of the continent some 7500 years ago The closest matches were with mtDNAs from people who today live in and around Italy The results imply that the Jews can trace their heritage to women who had lived in Europe at that time Very few Ashkenazi mtDNAs could be traced to the Middle East The results not only conflict with the Ostrer and Behar results but also with widespread assumptions about Jewish identity Jews have traditionally considered that the mother determines the ethnic identity of her children If being Jewish is defined as genetically descending from the Israelites through the maternal line then many Ashkenazi Jews fail the test according to this data Richards acknowledges that the work is likely to be controversial “I’d anticipate some resistance to our conclusions in certain quarters” he says One way to reconcile his team’s findings with those of other researchers he says is to assume that the founders of the male Ashkenazi lineages were indeed originally from the Middle East but that the maternal line arose in Europe much earlier The European women then converted to Judaism after male Jews moved into the continent establishing the Ashkenazi lineages that we see today That suggestion fits with the contention of some historians that many women converted to Judaism across Mediterranean Europe during the so-called Hellenistic period between about 300 BCE and 30 BCE “The data are very convincing” says Antonio Torroni a geneticist at the University of Pavia in Italy and a leading expert in the genetics of Europeans He adds that recent studies of DNA from the cell nucleus have also shown “a very close similarity between Ashkenazi Jews and Italians” The new data also put the nail in the coffin of another highly controversial hypothesis about Jewish ancestry: that the Ashkenazim actually descend from the Khazars a Turkic people in Western Asia’s Caucasus region whose rulers are known to have converted to Judaism in the 8th century CE That idea was promoted in a 2008 book by historian Shlomo Sand of Tel Aviv University in Israel Ostrer and Behar found no such link however and Richards’s team which sampled mtDNAs from Asia and the Caucasus specifically to test this idea also found no evidence for it Behar remains unconvinced He says it’s “clear that Ashkenazi maternal ancestry includes both [Middle Eastern] and European origins” but he does not agree that the deepest roots of the Ashkenazi Jews can be found in prehistoric Europe He says that he and his colleagues will be submitting their critique of the Richards study soon to a peer-reviewed scientific journal

largest in the world by 2020 However consumers they talk to doubt that any local carmaker will have come up with a model prestigious enough for them by then Currently the three top brands Audi BMW and Mercedes dominate 75% of the premium sector and keep growing at the expense of local rivals The new Volvo XC90 could buck that trend "Its a car that hits right in the heart of the market" James Chao director of the IHS consultancys automotive unit tells TIME "Its a little larger SUV premium but not fully luxury Its retained a lot of Volvos European flair while many people surely would feel proud to drive a Chinese vehicle of this caliber If its priced competitively and realistically it could be a hit" Success isn’t guaranteed There was widespread skepticism when Geely first purchased Volvo in 2010 Other acquisitions such as state-owned SAICs deal with Korean Ssangyong or SAIC’s subsidiary Nanjing Auto’s purchase of MG Rover failed to bring the sought-for synergies "Sometimes the Chinese companies have taken a lot of time to absorb the knowledge or the knowledge has been out of date" says Bin But he adds Volvo and Geely could be different "Volvo needed a lot of investment to develop new technology while Geely had money but no strong development team It was a win-win situation" The partnership got off to a shaky start Managers from the two companies publicly contradicted each other on how Scandinavian the new cars would be and the sometimes brash Chinese tastes collided with the sober aesthetic of safety-minded carmakers from Torslanda However communication slowly improved and the two sides seem to have found some equal ground In an interview with the Financial Times Volvo’s head of design Thomas Ingenlath said that Geelys owner Li Shufu had "opened our eyes" to the
