Google Assistant can now read your work calendar

first_imgSan Francisco: Google Assistant is finally coming to G Suite, starting with the Calendar app in beta within Googles enterprise platform. In a blog post, which coincided with the announcement at the company’s Cloud Next conference in San Francisco, the tech giant outlined how the integration will work. “Users with G Suite accounts can start testing with Assistant starting today,” said the company. “G Suite is integrating with Google Assistant, specifically with Calendar,” said David Thacker, Vice President of Product Management, G Suite. Also Read – Swiggy now in 500 Indian cities, targets 100 more this year “Now when you sign in and switch to your G Suite account, you can use your Assistant to help you prepare for the work day,” he said. Assistant integration for the G Suite Calendar app applies for both mobile as well as desktop users. Since the integration is just an enterprise feature, it would not work on Assistant-compatible device synced to an individual’s personal account. In addition, the company is also bringing other improvements including third-party connectivity in Cloud Search, updates to Hangouts Meet to help businesses stay connected and “connected sheets” feature to let workers collaborate on up to 10 billion rows of data right from within Sheets, the post noted.last_img read more

March Madness Crib Notes Duke And Wisconsin Flip A Coin For The

So it looks like Kentucky is the odds-on favorite … oh, wait. Time to rework that lead!Instead of being 71 percent likely to beat Duke and win the NCAA tournament (as our model would have predicted had Wisconsin not short-circuited Kentucky’s offense down the stretch Saturday night), the formerly undefeated Wildcats are nowhere to be found. And after a season largely spent pondering just how heavily Kentucky should be favored, it will instead be either Wisconsin or Duke hoisting the John Wooden trophy on Monday night. It shouldn’t come as a complete shock, but it’s still strange to be talking about the championship of the 2014-15 college basketball season without Kentucky being involved.Then again, in terms of generating an evenly matched championship game, Wisconsin’s upset of Kentucky might have been for the best. Out of all the potential title-game combinations to which our pre-tournament model run assigned a 0.5 percent or greater probability of occurring, Wisconsin versus Duke ranked fourth-closest to a true toss-up:Meanwhile, each of the 10 least competitive title-game combinations involved Kentucky. So if you were looking for a high-quality championship matchup with no clear favorite, it’s hard to do better than Monday’s Duke-Wisconsin showdown.West No. 1 Wisconsin (53 percent win probability) vs. South No. 1 DukeWhen to watch: At 9:18 p.m. EDT on CBSPower ratings: Wisconsin 95.3, Duke 95.0FiveThirtyEight model point spread: Wisconsin by 1.0Upset probability: 47 percentPlayers to watch: Frank Kaminsky, Wisconsin; Jahlil Okafor, DukeBoth title-game combatants have elite tempo-free offenses, to say the least.Wisconsin led all Division I teams in Ken Pomeroy’s adjusted offensive efficiency metric (paywall), while Duke ranked third. Although both attacks are outstanding, there are a few stylistic differences between the two: Wisconsin operates at a much slower pace and is slightly more reliant on post-ups and 3-point shooting, while Duke looks to push the ball more in transition. But both teams saw about 28 percent of their offensive possessions end in the hands of their respective centers, Kaminsky and Okafor, a pair of low-post scoring machines that may well have been the two best players (paywall) in all of college basketball this season.When it comes to offensive execution, though, the Badgers are simply on a different plane than the rest of the NCAA. The difference between Wisconsin’s top-ranked offensive rating and that of No. 3 Duke was the same as the difference between Duke and 13th-ranked Murray State. And the particulars of this matchup may tilt things even further in Wisconsin’s favor. Between Kaminsky, Nigel Hayes and Sam Dekker, the Badgers had the nation’s third-most-efficient post-up offense and its top isolation attack (by far), according to Synergy Sports. Meanwhile, Okafor’s defensive stats in the post were below average, and Duke’s biggest defensive weakness is against — you guessed it — isolation plays.All is not lost for the Blue Devils, however. The Badgers are more experienced and possess the bigger front line, but Duke was better defensively during the season. While both teams excel at keeping opponents off of the free-throw line, the Blue Devils are much better at forcing turnovers and defending against 3-pointers. In the battle of stars, Kaminsky has better individual defensive numbers1According to Synergy (paywall) and defensive box plus-minus. than Okafor, but Duke owns the edge in perimeter defense, particularly against pick-and-rolls.Statistically, Duke’s defensive advantage isn’t quite enough to cancel out the Badgers’ superior offense, but this is still an extremely close matchup.We have Wisconsin favored by about 1.0 point. Similarly, Pomeroy’s system predicts a narrow 70-69 Wisconsin win, and the consensus betting line also has the Badgers as 1-point favorites. Such a tight predicted margin doesn’t always lead to a close, exciting game — but a barnburner is probably more likely in this matchup than it would have been had either Kentucky or Michigan State prevailed Saturday instead.Check out FiveThirtyEight’s March Madness predictions. read more

Football Dremont Jones readily awaits NFL Draft at Pro Day

Ohio State redshirt junior defensive lineman Dre’Mont Jones (86) answers questions from the media on Dec. 27. Credit: Casey Cascaldo | Photo EditorFor many aspiring NFL draftees, Pro Day is a grappling ground for positioning in an NFL Draft where each higher slot yields increased financial standing.Former Ohio State defensive tackle Dre’mont Jones, however, said hearing his named called in Nashville will already be a dream come true.“It matters to me getting drafted,” Jones said. “It doesn’t matter if it’s first round, second round, third round.”That mindset befits a man who said there wasn’t much more he had to prove at Ohio State’s Pro Day Wednesday.“I think me coming out here and competing and showing my ability, especially when I feel like I didn’t have to, is a step in the right direction,” Jones said.Jones, who decided to forgo his final year of college eligibility, is projected to go anywhere from the late-first to late-second round in the NFL Draft on April 25.That leaves a lot of wiggle room for Jones, who came in at No. 20 among defensive lineman in the 40-yard-dash at the NFL Combine with a time of 5.12.Still, Jones opted not to take a stab at improving his time at Ohio State’s Pro Day.Ohio State head coach Ryan Day said his players take Pro Day seriously, but he underplayed its role as a make-or-break factor for their professional careers.“It’s not everything,” Day said. “We have the film and the combine and different things that tell the story for these guys, but this is obviously part of it.”Jones said his film speaks for itself.While there was speculation that he might declare for the draft after his redshirt sophomore season, Jones’s decision to stay in school proved fruitful. His junior campaign earned him a First-Team All-America selection by College Football News, recording 8.5 sacks, fifth-best in the Big Ten, and finishing with a career-high 13 tackles for loss.  Jones said his accomplishments this past season left no doubt in his mind that he is ready to move onto the next level.“I feel like it’s my time to leave,” Jones said. “I definitely left the platform enough for me to solidify myself as one of the greater defensive linemen that’s ever came through Ohio State.”There remain questions among scouts about Jones’s ability to play interior defensive lineman at the NFL level due to his 285-pound frame. Despite being labelled undersized, Jones said he is not often overmatched by bigger guards and doesn’t want to be marginalized in must-pass scenarios at the next level.“I’m not a third down specialist,” he said. “I want to be on those first and second down moments. That’s what I do.”Since his final collegiate game at the Rose Bowl, Jones said he had to flip a switch to adjust to the media circus surrounding the NFL Draft process that includes a slew of interviews and being evaluated on drills he’s never done.Day said appreciation and stress relief will come following the draft.“They have to enjoy it because they’ve worked their whole lives for this and they have to take it in,” Day said. “I think they can do that more when it’s over. They can take a deep breath.”Playing his high school ball at Saint Ignatius, the Cleveland native said he grew up rooting for the Browns. Even though he said he is no longer a fan, the Browns hold the No. 49 pick in the draft, where Jones may still be available.Jones said come April, a high selection is less of a concern than landing with the right team.“It’s all about fit,” Jones said. “You don’t want to go No. 1 to a team that doesn’t have a defense that fits you’re playing ability. So that second round, third round – I’m cool with it.” read more

Salah reacts to Sergio Ramos over his injury

first_imgLiverpool star, Mohamed Salah was injured by Madrid Sergio Ramos in the Champions League final played two weeks ago. Ever since then, talks about Salah’s state of health and whether or not he can feature in World Cup has been in the air.However, the Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos has insisted that too much noise has been made around his ruthlessness on Salah. Today, the Liverpool star has reacted to Sergio Ramos’ claims in an interview released with Marca.“Now I’m better. I hope to play the first game against Uruguay, but that will depend on how I feel when it approaches. It was the worst moment of my career”, Salah said.divock origi, liverpoolReport: Origi cause Klopp injury concerns George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Divock Origi injury in today’s game against Newcastle is a cause for concern for Jurgen Klopp.Perhaps with one eye on Tuesday’s trip to Italy…“When I fell to the ground, I had a mixture of physical pain and a lot of worry. Also anger and sadness for not being able to continue playing the Champions League final. Moments later, I also thought about the possibility of not playing in the World Cup and that was a devastating thought.”“Did Sergio Ramos called me? Yes, he sent me a message, but I never told him it was ‘okay. My comment is that it’s always okay when the one who made you cry first, then makes you laugh. Maybe he could also tell me if I’m going to be ready for the World Cup?”last_img read more

Claudio Ranieri desperate for points

first_imgFulham manager Claudio Ranieri says his immediate priority at the club is to win points as they battle to stay in the Premier League after an abysmal start to the season.Fulham are stuck to the bottom of the Premier League table, despite spending over £100m on players last summer.The Cottagers have amassed just 10 points from 18 matches and have conceded the most goals so far this season.Their poor start to the season led to the sacking of former manager Slaviša Jokanović and Claudio Ranieri was handed the reins to help the club survive.After picking up just four points from his three home games in charge, Ranieri wants to make Craven Cottage a fortress for the club as they prepare to host Wolves on Boxing Day.Official: Tottenham sign Fulham youngster Ryan Sessegnon Andrew Smyth – August 8, 2019 Tottenham have sealed another transfer deadline day deal to sign the highly-rated Ryan Sessegnon from Fulham.“I would like to get more points at home because in front of our fans they deserve it,” Ranieri told Sky Sports.“But in this moment wherever I can get points is not important. Getting points is more important than where.“Our fans are very close to us and they believe.“If I believe, they believe. If they believe they strengthen everything. We try to transmit to them our strength.“We feel our fans are behind us. It is important. They fight a lot to get back into the Premier League. That is important for us, for them, for everybody.”last_img read more

City of San Diego considers plan to scrap library fines

In the plan proposed by the City, borrowers would have more time to return the books. Instead of accruing more daily fees, the patron would have two months from the last due date to return the book.At 60 days, the account would go to the City Treasurer’s Office and the borrower would be required to pay the cost of replacing the book, before their library card becomes valid again.The director of the San Diego Public Library, Misty Jones said, “Overdue fines are creating unnecessary barriers to many of the people we’re trying to serve.”An analysis conducted by the Library found that the highest concentration of the public with overdue fines live in the lowest ranking socio-economic communities.Jones said putting the focus on book recovery instead of fines will be more cost-effective.Currently, the City of San Diego receives about $700,000 in overdue fines every year, but spends about a $1 million in staff time and materials to collect them.The plan must be approved by the San Diego City Council, and could be put into effect by July.

President Trump to visit San Diego next week

first_img Posted: March 7, 2018 March 7, 2018 SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders confirmed today that President Donald Trump will visit California next week, a journey that is expected to include a San Diego-area stop so he can view border wall prototypes.Sanders did not give details of the trip, confirming only that Trump “will be headed to California next week.”The Washington Post reported last week that Trump plans to visit the San Diego area to view the eight, 30-foot-tall border wall prototypes that have erected in Otay Mesa. The trip will also include a Republican National Committee fundraiser in Los Angeles, The Post reported.The trip will be Trump’s first to California since taking office. Asked why it has taken Trump so long to visit the state, Sanders said, “I think it’s because he’s been busy growing the economy, creating jobs, defeating ISIS, remaking the judiciary.”Confirmation of the trip came on the heels of a lawsuit filed against California by the U.S. Department of Justice challenging a trio of state laws that offer protections to people living in the country illegally. Trump has been openly critical of the state’s political leaders and policies.“They’re doing a lousy management job, they have the highest taxes in the nation and they don’t know what’s happening out there. Frankly it’s a disgrace, the sanctuary city situation, the protection of these horrible criminals,” Trump said last month.The wall prototypes represent the signature promise of Trump’s campaign: To build a “big, beautiful wall” along the U.S.-Mexico border.He has so far been unsuccessful in his attempts to have Mexico pay for the wall, as he had promised, nor has he been able to secure $18 billion for the project from Congress, which would pay for 300 miles of new barriers and the replacement of 400 miles of existing fencing, according to The Post.

BPA Announces Rule Changes to Take Effect Later This Year

first_img Reporting “average session duration” is now necessary. Effective immediately, business publications now have the option of selecting which of their issues is analyzed for a given reporting period (generally, either three or six months). The rule, which goes into effect with BPA’s December 2017 reports, comes with a slight caveat; once a publisher selects an issue to be analyzed, they’re locked into that decision for at least the next three years.  BPA Worldwide, the non-profit organization that audits media companies’ audience claims, revealed today a series of rule changes voted upon by its Board of Directors at their annual meeting last month.  “User sessions” will now be known simply as “sessions.” “Average page duration” and “unique browser frequency” will no longer be reported. “Page impressions” will now be reported as “page views.” BPA also updated its web traffic reporting to better conform with the metrics it receives from Google and Omniture. Effective June 2017, the following changes will be made: Other changes include an update to BPA’s rule requiring its members — both B2B and consumer-facing titles — to send alerts to subscribers when digital issues are available for download or online viewing. Previously, the rule simply required “an alert.” The board has clarified that the alert must come in digital form, either in an email blast or a mobile push notification. For the full update from BPA Worldwide, as well as some additional changes to the guidelines for consumer and B2B titles, click here. Additionally, BPA will now include audited reports for digital editions distributed through third-party aggregation services like Texture, which provide consumers access to a range of multiple titles for a fixed fee. Copies of individual digital issues viewed on or downloaded from such providers will be counted as “multi-title digital subscriptions,” with unique users — not views — reported as circulation units. Just over a year ago, BPA’s own report indicated that digital editions could account for as much as one-quarter of overall magazine circulation among its members. “Unique browsers” will now be called “users.”last_img read more

Google is planning to add more tiles in the future, according to Google’s blog post. Could that mean a shift away from apps and towards Tiles down the road? More likely, they’ll be used to help make accessing info easier.Google’s launching the new Wear OS Tiles update in the next month. We’ll get a closer look next week at Google I/O.center_img Wearable Tech 0 New Wear OS Tiles arrive this month. Google Google’s yearly I/O developer conference is next week, but the company announced an update to its smartwatch software ahead of the big show. The feature may seem familiar if you’ve ever used a Samsung Galaxy Watch.Wear OS, Google’s five-year-old smartwatch software platform, got its last big update in the fall. That update added swipable access to new fitness features and notifications, but Tiles looks to extend the swipe-over features further, adding widget-like mini-apps for info on the fly. The Samsung Galaxy Watch Active, one of the best Android-compatible smartwatches that doesn’t run Wear OS, already does this. last_img read more

The Big Bang Theory ends but Dr Amy Farrah Fowler lives on

first_img Tags 50 Photos Comments Share your voice 2019 TV shows you can’t misscenter_img 6 Mayim Bialik is a neuroscientist in real life. Presley Ann In a season of long-running shows bringing their stories to a (mostly satisfying) end, The Big Bang Theory did just that: wrap up the adventures of very smart people who live in a shared apartment and spend their free time playing Settlers of Catan.Along with physicists Sheldon and Leonard, we also said goodbye to a character who joined in season 3 and soon moved in to the Big Bang building permanently.Bespectacled neurobiologist Dr. Amy Farrah Fowler, alumni of Harvard and, spoiler, wife of Sheldon, represents the world of science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Dr. Amy joins the ranks of female TV characters working in STEM, alongside Cosima in Orphan Black, Dr. Temperance Brennan in Bones and Mindy Lahiri from The Mindy Project, to name a few.Played by Mayim Bialik (of Blossom fame), Dr. Amy made her entrance as a love interest to socially inept child prodigy Sheldon Cooper, wooing him with lines like, “All forms of physical contact, up to and including coitus, are off the table.” A true TV love story rivaling Jon Snow and Ygritte soon blossomed, though with less death and more intellectual discussion.Adept at both comedy and being really smart, Bialik is a neuroscientist in real life, having completed her Ph.D. at UCLA in 2007. Bialik has written four books, one of which, Girling Up, focuses on the many struggles girls face on their way to adulthood.The Big Bang Theory may have ended after 12 seasons on CBS (disclosure: CBS is CNET’s parent company) but Bialik continues to pave the way for budding female scientists. Speaking to CNET, she touched on women working in STEM and the reasons behind their low representation. “There’s a certain amount of hand wringing that I do about it, but part of it is also understanding that there’s a shift in the way we see women at all in any profession,” Bialik says.foto4.jpgA love story for the ages. CBS Photo Archive Women historically haven’t pursued these kinds of careers, Bialik says, noting that the industrial revolution brought in the first shift of female involvement in sciences in recent history, with World War II seeing women participating in different ways.”It was not so long ago that women were not even encouraged to work outside of the home,” Bialik says.A recent study on STEM looked into the number of women who earned degrees in those subjects. The study, from the National Center for Education Statistics, covered an eight-year period, starting in 2008, and found that the number of female students who’d been granted a STEM degree or certificate had increased by 48 percent over that period.Despite the progress, embarking on a STEM career for a woman isn’t necessarily an easy decision, Bialik stresses. “As a woman, the decisions you make about when to have children is going to largely be determined by what kind of career you have and how the government has established you to have support while you’re in your child-bearing years,” Bialik says.The work itself may not always be appealing either.”Girls and boys do tend to for the most part want to think and learn differently,” Bialik says. “The notion of being a lone scientist in a laboratory does not appeal to most girls.”But the notion of being in the field, working with other people, working with animals, those are things that girls find more interesting.”Some of women’s hesitation to take on STEM careers can be traced to the classroom when they’re growing up.”We have to remember there are social dynamics that are going to work on boys and girls in the classroom that exist elsewhere in society,” Bialik says.On whether she was afraid of putting her hand up in the classroom to answer a question, she says: “A lot of the boys are raised to be very confident, our culture emphasizes that, and for me, there was a lot of social pressure.”I felt very embarrassed if I got something wrong.”The issue may change, it’ll just take time.”So again, I think a lot of that is what our culture is like in the patriarchy, and it’s something that is absolutely shifting and will continue to shift,” Bialik says.”But … that’s not something that’s going to happen overnight.”Looking ahead, Bialik advocates girls meeting and having mentor opportunities with women working in the sciences to hear firsthand about the choices those women made, why they made them, and to show that STEM careers can be creative, exciting and dynamic.”It’s not just sitting alone in a laboratory,” Bialik says.

Facebooks Libra cryptocurrency reportedly boasts bigname backers

first_imgA Facebook cryptocurrency called Libra may be unveiled soon.  Nasir Kachroo/NurPhoto via Getty Images Reports of Facebook’s upcoming cryptocurrency have been circulating for weeks, and an announcement from the social network is expected within days. The coin, supposedly called Libra, has a list of financial backers including Visa, Mastercard, PayPal and Uber, according to a report in The Wall Street Journal on Friday.Each company will reportedly invest around $10 million into a consortium, which will govern the cryptocurrency. It’ll give the companies the power to operate a node of the cryptocurrency network. Facebook has reportedly been seeking backers to contribute up to $1 billion in total, and the final lineup of supporters is not yet set in stone, said the Journal.As early as 2020, the social network could then be launching its own Facebook cryptocurrency, which would potentially provide users with an online payments system without fees or international transactions. Facebook will reportedly peg it against government-issued cryptocurrencies in the hope of avoiding the wild fluctuations in value of other coins.We may find out more about Facebook’s plans for a cryptocurrency from a white paper, rumored to launch Tuesday.Facebook didn’t respond to a request for comment.

Facebook Cryptocurrency,I’m shocked — shocked! — to learn that stores are turning Labor Day into an excuse to sell stuff. Wait — no, I’m not. As much as I respect the original intent of the holiday (which became official back in 1894), to most of us, it’s just a bonus day off — one that’s blissfully tacked onto a weekend. So, yeah, stores; go ahead, run your sales. I’m listening. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Labor Day doesn’t bring out bargains to compete with the likes of Black Friday (which will be here before you know it), but there are definitely some sales worth your time.For example:We’ve rounded up the best Labor Day mattress deals.We’ve also gathered the best Labor Day laptop deals at Best Buy.The 2019 Vizio P Series Quantum is back under $999.Be sure to check out Amazon’s roughly three dozen Labor Day deals on TVs and audio.

Trump says hes watching Google very closely slams CEO Sundar Pichai

first_img US Tech Policy Comments Enlarge ImagePresident Donald Trump attacked Google CEO Sundar Pichai in an early-morning tweet storm. James Martin/CNET President Donald Trump is again going after Google. In a series of early morning tweets, Trump attacked Google CEO Sundar Pichai and warned the search giant that he’s watching the company “very closely” ahead of the 2020 US election. Trump said he met with Pichai in the Oval Office and raised questions about Google’s role in the 2016 election, as well as the company’s artificial intelligence work in China. He also suggested, without evidence, that Google is trying to “illegally subvert” the next election. “All very illegal,” Trump tweeted. “We are watching Google very closely!” Share your voice See All Politics Jul 28 • Apple’s Q3 earnings are all about the iPhone 11 hints Tags Trump criticizes ‘censorship’ on social media, SpaceX… 4 Trump referenced Kevin Cernekee, a former Google engineer and subject of a Wall Street Journal profile last week, who claims he was fired from Google for his conservative views. Google on Tuesday called Cernekee a “disgruntled former employee” and said his statements about the company are “absolutely false.””We go to great lengths to build our products and enforce our policies in ways that don’t take political leanings into account,” a spokeswoman said. “Distorting results for political purposes would harm our business and go against our mission of providing helpful content to all of our users.”Trump’s accusation of anticonservative bias is a familiar refrain. Last August, Trump claimed that Google’s search results were “rigged” to promote negative news stories on Trump. At the time, the president told reporters, “I think Google has really taken advantage of a lot of people.” He added, “Google and Twitter and Facebook, they’re really treading on very, very troubled territory, and they have to be careful.”Last month, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said he met with Pichai to discuss the company’s work in China. After the meeting, Mnuchin said he and Trump had no security concerns about Google’s work in the country. Two days later, though, Trump tweeted that there “may or may not” be security concerns. 1:23 US Tech Policy Aug 7 • Trump’s emissions and fuel economy rollbacks will cost Americans money, study says ….are NOT planning to illegally subvert the 2020 Election despite all that has been said to the contrary.
