Half-time: Ipswich 0 QPR 1

first_imgJunior Hoilett’s header seconds before half-time gave QPR the lead in an otherwise uninspiring game.The Rangers winger nodded in Leroy Fer’s fantastic cross in a rare moment of quality at Portman Road.A couple of minutes earlier, QPR had had a let-off when Luke Chambers headed wide of the post from Ainsley Maitland-Niles’ corner.But they were the only two serious chances, preceded by a fairly flat 44 minutes not helped by a bobbly pitch.Ipswich began positively but all they had to show for it was Daryl Murphy’s early effort which flew wide.QPR held firm and Sebastian Polter, who continued up front for Rangers in the continued absence of Charlie Austin, had a penalty appeal turned down after a challenge by Christophe Berra.Ale Faurlin then whipped in a free-kick which Ipswich keeper Dean Gerken got across to gather, QPR’s only chance until Hoilett’s goal.Both teams were unchanged, with Austin failing to shake off the hamstring complaint which ruled him out of the draw at Bristol City last weekend.Ipswich: Gerken; Chambers, Smith, Berra, Knudsen; Maitland-Niles, Skuse, Douglas, Sears; Pitman, Murphy.Subs: Bialkowski, Malarczyk, Hyam, Oar, Bru, Fraser, Varney.QPR: Green; Onuoha, Angella, Hall, Konchesky; Henry, Faurlin; Phillips, Fer, Hoilett; Polter.Subs: Smithies, Hill, Sandro, Luongo, Tozser, Chery, Emmanuel-Thomas.Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

Facebook Settlement Gets Judge’s OK

first_imgTags:#Facebook#news#web A Comprehensive Guide to a Content Audit sarah perez Facebook is Becoming Less Personal and More Pro… Guide to Performing Bulk Email Verificationcenter_img The Dos and Don’ts of Brand Awareness Videos Related Posts Proposal Would Kill Beacon, Have Facebook Paying $9.5 Million Late last week, a federal judge in California gave preliminary approval to a settlement of the class action lawsuit regarding Facebook’s Beacon program. The controversial program, launched back in November of 2007, allowed Facebook users to share online purchases made on third-party affiliate websites with their social networking friends. The problem with the program was that it was opt-out instead of opt-in, angering many Facebook users who unknowingly shared information they wished they wouldn’t have.One such victim was Sean Lane, now the lead plaintiff in the lawsuit. He was especially angry after the news of an Overstock.com purchase was posted to his Facebook profile. The purchase, a diamond ring he bought for his wife, was meant to be a surprise. After that incident, Lane, along with eighteen other plaintiffs, filed a class action lawsuit against Facebook, claiming that Beacon’s opt-out option was “inadequate, misleading and deceptive.” Details of the Agreement: Shutting Down Beacon, Paying Damages, Non-Profit FoundationThe case has been in litigation since last year, but now looks like it’s drawing to a close. U.S. District Court judge, Richard Seeborg in San Jose, has approved the proposed Facebook settlement that would have the company paying out $9.5 million, two-thirds of which would go to setting up a non-profit foundation to fund “projects and initiatives that promote the cause of online privacy, safety and security.” The remaining money would then be split among the lawyers and the plaintiffs, each of whom would receive damages of $1000-15,000, according to MediaPost. The other major part to the Facebook settlement is the required termination of Facebook’s Beacon program in its entirety. Although Facebook had quickly reacted to the Beacon outcry after its launch, changing the system over to opt-in and even issuing a formal apology, the program still exists today. (You can check your settings by going to Settings -> Privacy Settings -> Applications -> Settings tab. Then scroll down to the bottom to see if “Beacon websites” is checked or unchecked. Checked will ensure no Beacon stories get posted to your profile).If the proposed settlement goes through, Facebook would then be relieved from liability from any future lawsuits regarding the same complaint and even those still pending like the Facebook/Blockbuster class action suit brought in April 2008.Settlement Sounds Great…Especially for FacebookOn the surface, the proposed settlement sounds fair enough to all parties involved. Damages are paid and Facebook has to promote online privacy. However, as David Johnson points out on the Digital Media Lawyer Blog, Facebook is already required by law to promote online privacy and the safety and security of its users’ information per FTC mandates. In addition, Facebook would get to nominate one and have say over the other two board members on the proposed Privacy Foundation’s board of directors. Says Johnson: “Facebook effectively gets most of its money back to fund projects that it is already has an obligation to perform.” Sounds like the real winner here may be Facebook. You can read the Settlement Agreement here, courtesy of CircleID. The settlement was proposed last month, but only received preliminary approval on Friday. The affected parties have until February 1st to object to the proposed settlement.last_img read more

Final Cut Pro Gets a Major Update for the New MacBook Pro

first_imgApple announces a Final Cut Pro X update that features a new interface and workflow designed for the new MacBook Pro.All images via Apple/Final Cut ProApple recently announced a new MacBook Pro that features an innovative new Touch Bar to help creatives speed up their workflow. They showed off the new machine by running the latest version of Final Cut Pro — 10.3. With all these updates, I’m surprised they didn’t release this as Final Cut Pro 11. This is the version Apple should have released after FCP7;  it takes a lot of cues from the old timeline and really brings it into the future.The new features clearly come from listening to users. And Apple has implemented them in a way that’s both clean and powerful. — Thomas Grove Carter, professional video editorWith a totally new interface, Final Cut Pro is now “focused on your video” and features easily customizable windows to match your editing workflow. Running on the new MacBook Pro, Apple claims a 76% increase in editing speed and up to 57% faster 4K 3D title rendering.The new Touch Bar is an interactive touchscreen that will display your entire timeline at once. You can even scrub through the timeline with the touch interface, make adjustments to audio levels, and trim clips.The new color grading layout displays video scopes, the Effects browser, and the Inspector all on the same screen. This allows users to navigate through the program in a faster, more efficient manner.The Magnetic Timeline 2 is one of the biggest features to take note of. It’s very reminiscent to the much beloved Final Cut Pro 7.Assemble shots with ease as clips “magnetically” close up to eliminate unwanted gaps in the timeline. Similarly, clips move out of the way to avoid clip collisions and sync problems. Automatic color coding makes it easy to identify different types of audio — such as dialogue, music, and effects. And powerful controls in the Timeline Index let you instantly customize the look of your timeline and focus on specific kinds of audio as you edit.Here’s a look at it in action with Apple’s new Timeline Index.Imported clips can be automatically categorized and color coded by their role. Dialogue, sound effects, video effects and music will all have individual Roles. Then you’ll be able to drag Roles into the Timeline Index.Here is a look at the new Roles from Apple. These really look to be incredibly helpful for speeding up the workflow, and the ability to collapse or expand based on the type of media is a solid feature.Audio clips have been moved into Audio Lanes, as seen in this Apple video. Once again, they various types of audio are separated by type — SFX, music, and dialogue. This allows you to easily find the exact track you are looking for.Other new features include:Flow Transitions for smooth cutsRemoving effects and attributes in one click, allowing easier manipulation of effects across clipsUsing Thunderbolt 3 direct-to-video output produces multi-monitor high-quality display with single cableTimecode Generator and overlay effect allows users to edit with large view of source timecodeRoll Trim on adjacent connected clipsDeeper search capabilitiesContinuous PlaybackFull-height Inspector BrowserCopy timecode from a document or spreadsheet and paste into Final Cut Pro for navigating projectsUpdates to Motion and CompressorMotion 5.3 will also have Touch Bar support in the new MacBook Pro. Other updates include wide color support, 3D text enhancements, and the Align To feature that lets users connect separate objects to create advanced animations.Compressor 4.3 will now have a new darker look mirroring that of Final Cut Pro X and Motion. With the Touch Bar, users can add markers and set up batches.Final Cut Pro 10.3 is available today. The update is free for existing users and available to purchase new for $299. Apple is also offering a 30-day free trial.What are your thoughts on this new Final Cut Pro update? Share them in the comments below!last_img read more
