Tournament at Baseline Tennis Center the first gauge of the season for Minnesota

first_imgAnderson will be playing her singles in the second flight, and is among a trio of freshmen – including Marina Bugaenco and Danielle Mousseau – that Thomson has high hopes for.“Obviously, I’m a little unfamiliar with our freshmen and their ability to compete,” he said. “But it wouldn’t surprise me if any of our three freshmen played well and won their flight.”Playing in the top flight of singles for the Gophers will be junior Nischela Reddy, sophomore Lindsay Risebrough and sophomore Ida Malmberg.Malmberg played on last year’s team, which was made up mostly of walk-ons. She said she can already feel the team is ready to go in a different direction.“If you look at our record last year, it wasn’t that good,” Malmberg said. “But I really enjoyed being around these girls, and I still do. They’re like a family to me now.”Thomson said that while for him, the season started on the first day of practice, tomorrow will be the team’s first chance to see its work fleshed out on the court.“The focus of our team has been on building a good environment,” Thomson said. “And it’s more about the process. Now is the time we can start to apply those things.” Tournament at Baseline Tennis Center the first gauge of the season for Minnesota Mike MullenSeptember 17, 2004Jump to CommentsShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare via EmailPrintMinnesota’s women’s tennis team does not start its season this weekend with the Gophers Invitational Tournament. Not if you listen to coach Tyler Thomson.“I think starting anew is more of a practice thing,” Thomson said. “And we’re starting to accept that and develop it. I think we’d be putting the cart before the horse if we focused on matches right away.”But Thomson said he knows that this event, which has individual players and doubles teams competing in flighted tournaments, is going to be meaningful to his players. Minnesota will play to host to five non-Big Ten teams, including Gustavus Adolphus and Drake.The tournament begins today at 9 a.m., but no Gophers are in action until 11 a.m. It runs all day today through Sunday, culminating in the doubles championship matches at 9:30 a.m. and singles championship matches at 10:30 a.m. Sunday.While Big Ten team competition does not start until January, the results of the Gophers Invitational will factor into the national rankings.“The fall schedule is very important if you’re trying to establish yourself on the national scene,” Thomson said. “(The fall season) is going to be a new experience for almost the whole team, since only two of our current players played in the fall last year.”One of the players who will see her first fall competition this weekend is Jane Anderson, a freshman from Edina, Minn. Anderson said that despite – or perhaps because of – her lack of experience, she’s not nervous about how she’ll play.“(Thomson) told us to just have fun and be relaxed,” Anderson said. “There are no expectations for us now. This is a starting point for us to base things off of.”last_img read more

Week 10 Fantasy Rankings: Kickers

first_imgKickers continue to be the bane of existence for many fantasy football owners. There are 28 to choose from this week, but with Justin Tucker and the Ravens on bye, chances are that the waiver wire (or, more accurately, the free agent wire) may see a bit more activity than normal when it comes to Ks. Of course, you should never use a waiver claim on a kicker, but some fantasy owners might, so that could pick clean some of the better options. Still, when putting together our Week 10 fantasy kicker rankings, we’re just going to stick to the strategy of targeting guys with big legs from good offenses. It’s that easy.Among the best kicker pickups for this week is whoever is kicking for the Falcons vs. the Browns (we don’t know whether that’s Matt Bryant or Giorgio Tavecchio right now, but we’ll know soon enough) and Dustin Hopkins (Redskins @ Buccaneers). Those are solid kickers in favorable matchups against mediocre defenses, so that will give them a chance to score frequently. Week 10 Rankings:Quarterback | Running Back | Wide Receiver | Tight End | D/STIf none of the top options intrigue you, just pick someone from the middle tier. It’s possible that Aldrick Rosas, Cody Parkey, or even Robbie Gould could have a solid outing. It’s just too hard to predict at kicker, so go with your gut. Note: We’ll update our rankings throughout the week if weather or injuries figure to be major factors. And for more fantasy content, find out “How You’ll Lose in Week 10”.WEEK 10 PPR RANKINGS: Running back | Wide receiver | Tight endWeek 10 Fantasy Kicker Rankings1Wil Lutz, Saints @ Bengals2Harrison Butker, Chiefs vs. Cardinals3Stephen Gostkowski, Patriots @ Titans4Randy Bullock, Bengals vs. Saints5Giorgio Tavecchio, Falcons @ Browns6Dustin Hopkins, Redskins @ Buccaneers7Jake Elliott, Eagles vs. Cowboys8Graham Gano, Panthers @ Steelers9Mason Crosby, Packers vs. Dolphins10Greg Zuerlein, Rams vs. Seahawks11Chris Boswell, Steelers vs. Panthers12Matt Prater, Lions @ Bears13Ryan Succop, Titans vs. Patriots14Adam Vinatieri, Colts vs. Jaguars15Aldrick Rosas, Giants @ 49ers16Josh Lambo, Jaguars @ Colts17Cody Parkey, Bears vs. Lions18Jason Myers, Jets vs. Bills19Brett Maher, Cowboys @ Eagles20Robbie Gould, 49ers vs. Giants21Phil Dawson, Cardinals @ Chiefs22Daniel Carlson, Raiders vs. Chargers23Michael Badgley, Chargers @ Raiders24Sebastian Janikowski, Seahawks @ Rams25Greg Joseph, Browns vs. Falcons26Steven Hauschka, Bills @ Jets27Chandler Catanzaro, Buccaneers vs. Redskins28Jason Sanders, Dolphins @ Packerslast_img read more

The two jammers from each team, who score the points, start a 10 meters behind the pack and begin skating when the last blocker crosses the pivot line.The jammers work their way through the pack of blockers to score points.

Kick-off: 7.45pmGalway United face Bohemians in the second round of the Irish Daily Mail FAI Cup at Eamonn Deacy Park on Friday night. Kick-off is at 7.45pm.United will be looking to bounce back from last week’s defeat against Longford Town, which effectively ruled out promotion from the First Division.Both sides had to knock out opposition at Ferrycarrig Park to reach the second round of the Cup.Bohemians were 7-0 winners against Wexford FC, meanwhile Galway United came away from Ferrycarrig with a 4-0 win against North End United to set up the tie with Keith Long’s side.ALAN MURPHY ON FACING BOHEMIANS IN THE CUP“It’s the biggest game of the season,” Murphy remarked to www.galwayunitedfc.ie.center_img “Bohemians are a good side. We’ve got a home draw in the FAI Cup, which is what every team wants. We’re looking to bounce back after last week in terms of attitude, performance, hard work and application.“It’s going to be a good test for this group of players to see if they’re capable of reacting and restoring a bit of pride.“It’s a different game and mindset for us. It’s a one off type game that is decided on the night. Winner takes all, which could be great for a team out of the hunt for a play-off now.“We have to give Bohs the respect that they deserve. They had an excellent win against Shamrock Rovers last week and they’ve inflicted heavy defeats on Bray and Limerick recently.“They’ve got players with serious pedigree. It’s a huge battle for our players to test themselves against quality opposition. The Cup is hugely important for the present squad of players.” GALWAY UNITED GOALSCORERSEoin McCormack – 12Conor Barry – 11Danny Furlong – 7Carlton Ubaezuonu – 3Alan Murphy – 2Marc Ludden – 2Ronan Manning – 2Stephen Kenny – 1Ryan Connolly – 1Robbie Williams – 1Stephen Walsh – 1FORM GUIDEGALWAY UNITEDUCD 2-0 Galway UnitedGalway United 3-2 CabinteelyDrogheda United 2-2 Galway UnitedNorth End United 0-4 Galway UnitedGalway United 1-4 Longford TownBOHEMIANSBohemians 6-0 Bray WanderersDundalk 2-0 BohemiansBohemians 5-0 LimerickWexford FC 0-7 BohemiansShamrock Rovers 0-1 BohemiansLAST MEETINGSeptember 1st, 2018 | Bohemians 1-1 Galway UnitedBohemians goalscorer: Paddy KavanaghGalway United goalscorer: Padraic Cunninghamprint WhatsApp Facebook Twitter Emaillast_img read more

Salesforce opens up Lightning Bolt portal templates for specific business needs

first_img Posted on 15th September 2016Digital Marketing FacebookshareTwittertweetGoogle+share HomeDigital MarketingSalesforce opens up Lightning Bolt portal templates for specific business needs Salesforce opens up Lightning Bolt portal templates for specific business needsYou are here: Salesforce has added bolts to its Lightning.Last year, the company released generalized self-service portal templates using its Community Cloud, for businesses’ customers, partners, and employees.The templates were built with the company’s Lightning framework. Lightning enables portals for web and mobile apps to be readily assembled via the use of drag-and-drop functional components, like an organizing tool for community events or the ability to share files among a team.Nearly a thousand Lightning communities were created by businesses with these templates. European telecommunications firm Sky, for instance, created a community of its users, while Unilever employed it for Employee Communities that spanned brands.Salesforce says its research shows that, for such uses as case resolution, employee engagement, partner sales, and customer satisfaction, online communities can boost performance by 40 or more percent.Now, Salesforce has launched the next phase of portal templates, called Lightning Bolt.A componentized portal building tool was made available to ten Salesforce partners — including Accenture, Deloitte, and Cognizant — to create a dozen business-specific portal templates that include built-in logic and workflow, like recommendation engines, e-commerce, and case management. Like the original templates, these are integrated out-of-the-box with Salesforce’s popular customer relationship management (CRM) system and with the Community Cloud, and can be connected via API to other systems.The new Lightning Bolt templates include:an insurance company community for its agents;a store operations platform for internal communications;a B2B e-commerce community between sales reps and suppliers;a community of customers and partners for manufacturers;a portal for patient health;a chatbot that connects retailers with customers, partners, and employees;access to customer information and purchase history by retail store managers.In each case, the design, functions and business logic has been tailored for that specific business need. Salesforce’s AppExchange will now host a new Lightning Bolt category so more partners can build, market, and sell other portal templates.SVP Mike Stone told me that about 60 percent of the Bolt portal templates “are ready to go.” The others can be customized by businesses working with the original partner-creators, or through their own developers.From our sponsors: Salesforce opens up Lightning Bolt portal templates for specific business needs Related postsLytics now integrates with Google Marketing Platform to enable customer data-informed campaigns14th December 2019The California Consumer Privacy Act goes live in a few short weeks — Are you ready?14th December 2019ML 2019121313th December 2019Global email benchmark report finds email isn’t dead – it’s essential13th December 20192019 benchmark report: brand vs. non-brand traffic in Google Shopping12th December 2019Keep your LinkedIn advertising strategy focused in 202012th December 2019last_img read more


Betting on Standardization

first_imgWith Office as the most deployed solution across business infrastructure, wherever on the collaboration spectrum your organization eventually lands, the exchange of information both inside and outside the firewall will most likely continue to revolve around Word documents, Excel spreadsheets, and PowerPoint presentations.When you standardize with devices that run Microsoft Office natively, your team members can seamlessly collaborate with their colleagues in other companies with 95 percent certainty that their Office documents will be viewed in their native environment.Gain Support from Enterprise ITFrom the perspective of IT, the Intel and Windows 8 platform is easy to implement and requires no additional backend infrastructure. Unlike iPads, Android devices, or even tablets based on Windows RT, Windows 8 devices can easily join an enterprise domain, and administrators can manage them with tools they likely already use.These factors mean that line-of-business managers who want to equip their teams with Windows 8 business devices powered by Intel architectureOpens in a new window will likely encounter less resistance from IT than they would with other options.This blog is part 4 of 4 in a series focused on intercompany collaboration.

Probably not. In a similar vein – you can’t guarantee the operating systems that your employees’ external business partners are using, but you can make an educated guess. And that educated guess can enable your employees to collaborate seamlessly both within the business with partners outside the firewall. In this blog, we’ll discuss how Microsoft Office is the safe bet for your business.- IT Peer Network AdministratorThe Shortest Path to CollaborationThe shortest path to the collaboration sweet spot for intercompany collaboration is through standardization.When providing employees with tablets, you can standardize information workers’ on elements that most organizations have in common, in order to support users’ needs for tablet and touch flexibility without creating additional collaboration hurdles. That standardization is easily accomplished through devices based on Intel architecture running Windows 8. This platform provides the best experience with the tools your users are already using—namely Microsoft Office—and supports users’ work styles with the least adaptation.In other words, unlike iPads, Android tablets, or fully converged collaboration solutions, devices running Windows 8 integrate seamlessly into user work styles with little disruption. Microsoft Office is the foundation of most information workers’ work styles. According to Forbes, Microsoft leads the office productivity software market with a 95 percent share.last_img read more


Samsung’s Tizen-based smartphone for India could launch this month, specifications tipped

first_imgRumour mills have been doing rounds across platforms for quite some time now that Samsung is working on a Tizen OS based smartphone for India. The smartphone has been long rumoured to be launched by the South Korean tech giant sometime in November this year. Only now, there seems to be some firm news regarding the same, courtesy Gizmobic which has spotted a user agent (UA) profile of a handset, that in all probability could be the device in question. The alleged device with a Samsung SM-Z130H UA profile has also tipped some rare specifications of the said device.The Samsung SM-Z130H smartphone reportedly features a 4-inch WVGA display with a 480×800 pixels resolution and a 288ppi pixel density. It is powered by a 1.2GHz CPU with 32-bit ARMv7 architecture alongside 512MB of RAM. It runs Tizen 2.3 version and comes with Samsung browser 2.0.34. It is also touted to sport a 3.2MP rear camera.It can be recalled that Samsung launched its first Tizen-powered ‘Z’ smartphone back in June this year, more a failed attempt to cash in on an OS that is relatively new when compared to Android or iOS. The company had to postpone the rollout of the device for a period still unknown. Therefore, the new Tizen-based device for India is somewhat of a challenge for the company to hold on to in the longer run. However, for now there is no definite news from the company regarding the device, therefore we’ll have to wait and watch for more.advertisementlast_img read more
