Chelsea beat Arsenal, Man City lose in English Premier League

first_imgLONDON (AP):For a day at least, everything went Chelsea’s way again in the English Premier League.After an unconvincing start to their title defence, Chelsea were given a double boost by beating London rivals Arsenal, 2-0, in a contentious game yesterday and then seeing leaders Manchester City’s perfect start end with a 2-1 home loss to West Ham.Chelsea’s day might have turned out less positively had Diego Costa not stayed on the field after swiping at Laurent Koscielny’s face and then chesting the defender to the ground. Instead, it was Arsenal defender Gabriel Paulista who was sent off when he retaliated by kicking out at Costa after the two scuffled just before half-time – leaving Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger furious.”He will do the same next week and the week after and he always gets away with it,” Wenger said about Costa. “It’s always provocation and he uses well the naivety of (referee) Mike Dean.”The verdict from Chelsea manager JosÈ Mourinho on Costa was more succinct: “Fantastic, Diego. … Man of the match.”Chelsea’s openerChelsea’s opener came eight minutes after the break through Kurt Zouma’s header and any hope of an Arsenal comeback appeared to evaporate in the 79th minute, when Santi Cazorla was dismissed for a late sliding tackle on Cesc F‡bregas.Eden Hazard completed only the second victory of Chelsea’s six-game-old title defence in stoppage time with a deflected shot.Mourinho maintained his unbeaten record against Wenger in a 14th competitive game and Chelsea finally started climbing up the fledgling Premier League.The surprise sight near the top is West Ham in second place after stunning City, the 2012 and 2014 champions. City have 15 points with West Ham and fellow surprise package Leicester on 12.Victor Moses put West Ham ahead after just six minutes with a low shot from distance, the first league goal City had conceded all season. Diafra Sakho doubled the lead in the 31st after a goalmouth scramble from a corner.New signing Kevin De Bruyne pulled a goal back for City on the stroke of half time from 20 yards, but West Ham held on despite sustained pressure from the hosts in the second half.”I think we played too fast in the second half, too rushed,” City manager Manuel Pellegrini said. “You must be more calm, but when you are two goals down it is difficult. We had a lot of chances to score.”It took a second-half fightback at Stoke for Leicester to stay unbeaten, with Riyad Mahrez’s penalty and Jamie Vardy’s strike recovering a 2-2 draw.”It’s unbelievable! For the fourth time in a row, we come back (after conceding),” manager Claudio Ranieri said.It left Stoke winless, like Newcastle and Sunderland, with the north-east strugglers both losing to newcomers to stay on two points.Callum Wilson and Matt Ritchie scored in the opening nine minutes to give Bournemouth a 2-0 win over Sunderland. Watford won 2-1 at Newcastle with Odion Ighalo taking advantage of poor defending to score twice in the opening 28 minutes.”No one said this job was going to be easy and we didn’t think it would be,” Newcastle manager Steve McClaren said. “It’s a tough job … it’s very difficult to turn things round in two and a half months.”At Villa Park, Saido Berahino scored his first goal for West Bromwich Albion since threatening to go on strike after a failed move to Tottenham as his team beat city rivals Aston Villa 1-0.There was only one goalless game yesterday, with Everton striker Romelu Lukaku wasting a number of chances at Swansea.last_img read more

DoItYourself Mobile Delivery

first_imgDynetic, which began in Europe and now operates worldwide, works with some of the largest European publisher groups, as well as eBay and Yahoo!. “We’re currently in discussion with North American publishers that have some presence in mobile but are still looking for the right solution to make it a profitable channel,” says Farmer. “All they really need are the tools, and we help with that.” Publishers first used the Web to post static pages from the magazine. Then, to make money, they had to create some Internet-based experiences so users could interact. That’s when the Web really started to take off. “Mobile is following the same path as the Internet,” says Ran Farmer, managing director, North America, of Dynetic Mobile Solutions, Inc. Dynetic helps publishers create similar interactive experiences on the mobile Internet. Its Web-based NetbiscuitsTM software platform enables publishers to transfer their PC Internet program to the mobile Internet. “The big challenge in the mobile sector,” Farmer says, “is to overcome all the variations in the handsets, which use different kinds of software and operate differently, and in the carriers, which have different rules and different markup languages. Our software is a layer that sorts out all those problems for developers and content owners. They just create their mobile sites as they would for the Internet and publish it. We make sure that it is optimized and delivered globally to any kind of device that may request it.”Publishers simply create an account on netbiscuits.com to start building a mobile application. The software allows them to integrate directly with their Web content management system, so that editors can edit the articles, images and content in one place and then feed it either to the PC Internet or to mobile. The mobile site needs to be designed only once to accommodate the smaller screen and buttons. Dynetic also has a professional services group that provides some handholding during setup, if necessary.Netbiscuits is a subscription service. The monthly fee ranges from $645 for 200,000 page views and basic delivery of text and graphics to $2,595 for a million or more page views and rich media, video, audio, streaming, breaking news and more. Multiple titles can be published from the same subscription. last_img read more

Trump Says Apple Should Rebuild Manufacturing in the US to Avoid Tariffs

first_imgApple didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.Trump told reporters Friday that his administration was days away from imposing a new round of tariffs on imports worth $200 billion, and that it could follow up with another round of tariffs on goods worth an additional $267 billion.Apple voiced its concerns about these tariffs in a public filing Friday, arguing that tariffs could make a wide range of products the company is selling to U.S. consumers more expensive. Affected products will include Apple Watch, Homepod, Apple Pencil, Air Pods, Mac Mini, cables, adapters and other accessories, according to the filing. Popular on Variety President Trump responded to Apple’s concerns about tariffs with a tweet Saturday morning, acknowledging that Apple products could get more expensive as a result of his administration’s escalating trade war with China.However, Trump suggested that there was an “easy solution” to this issue. All Apple had to do to avoid import taxes was to rebuild all of its manufacturing in the U.S. “Start building new plants now,” he tweeted. “Exciting!” “Our concern with these tariffs is that the U.S. will be hardest hit, and that will result in lower U.S. growth and competitiveness and higher prices for U.S. consumers,” the company wrote. “Because all tariffs ultimately show up as a tax on U.S. consumers, they will increase the cost of Apple products that our customers have come to rely on in their daily lives.”The suggestion that Apple could easily move all of its manufacturing to the U.S. doesn’t quite match up with the realities of the consumer electronics industry, which depends on China’s significantly lower wages as well as the country’s massive manufacturing infrastructure.Apple doesn’t actually run its own factories in China, but uses contract manufacturers like Foxconn to build the iPhone and other products. Foxconn’s largest factory is estimated to be 1.4 square miles in size, and reportedly at one point housed up to 450,000 workers, many of which live in dorms on the factory grounds. Last year, a New York University student who worked undercover in an iPhone factory reported that he made $450 per month.At the same time, Apple is already using components sourced from U.S. manufacturers in some of its products. For instance, the iPhone’s screen is made by Corning, a New York-based manufacturer specializing in touch screens and other high-tech glass products. The company said on its website that it spent over $50 billion for goods purchased from U.S. suppliers last year. ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.
