BT gets SA telecoms licences

first_img4 February 2009The South African subsidiary of UK-based telecoms group BT has been awarded both individual electronic communications services (i-ECS) and electronic communication network services (i-ECNS) licences, paving the way for the company to broaden the range of networked IT services it provides in the country.The i-ECNS licence provides similar provisioning rights as presently held by local telecommunications incumbents and the major local mobile operators.“Awarding of the licences represents another milestone for BT in South Africa,” BT South Africa country manager Keith Matthews said in a statement this week.“The new licences will allow us to further expand our portfolio and offer a comprehensive set of networked IT services to our existing and new customers.”Opening up telecoms marketThis development is part of the broader opening up of South Africa’s telecommunications market, with several value added network services (VANS) operators receiving licences. BT has been operating in the South African market with a VANS licence.Last year, under pressure from the key players in the telecommunications sector, the Independent Communications Authority of South Africa decided to convert the VANS licences into individual i-ECNS and i-ECS licences.“This year has already been designated as the ‘year of bandwidth’ in South Africa as the telecommunications market deregulates,” said Matthews. “We welcome this new opportunity to deliver the full spectrum of our global know-how and technologies to this important market.”SAinfo reporter Would you like to use this article in your publicationor on your website?See: Using SAinfo materiallast_img read more

Oracle’s Private ‘Cloud’ Not a Cloud says Vogels

first_img8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Tags:#cloud#cloud computing Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Related Posts A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… At London’s Royal Opera House yesterday Oracle presented their perspective and strategy on cloud computing along with two industry experts, Amazon’s CTO, Werner Vogels and Gartner’s VP of research, Phil Dawson.The consensus was that the industry is heading towards a mix of public and private clouds. Although by Werner Vogels’ definition, private clouds are not true clouds. True clouds, he argues, allow you to think about resources in an unconstrained manner. Elasticity and pay-as-you-go pricing are central to Vogels’ definition. When resources are switched off, you stop paying. If privately owned, a cloud would have fixed capacity (no elasticity) and would always have fixed operation costs – regardless of utilization.Gartner’s definition of cloud computing has evolved between 2008 and late 2009 to include elasticity as a characteristic, and now includes this differentiation between public and private cloud computing:Public cloud computing [is] a style of computing in which scalable and elastic IT-enabled capabilities are delivered as a service to external customers using Internet technologies. Private cloud computing is defined as a style of computing in which scalable and elastic IT-enabled capabilities are delivered as a service to internal customers using Internet technologies. Private-Cloud-In-a-BoxOracle used concept videos showing Cloud Administrator consoles integrated into Enterprise Manager as a way to demonstrate their vision and strategy in the private cloud. But the company did not disclose any detailed plans for the future to avoid setting timescale and feature expectations. With that said, they did hint that they expected it would take them 3 quarters to get the integration work done. tim hastingslast_img read more

Pansare murder: Dabholkar shooter, two others sent to 10 days’ police custody

first_imgA local court in Kolhapur on Friday remanded Sachin Andure, named by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) to be one of the shooters of rationalist Narendra Dabholkar, and two others to police custody till September 16 in connection with the 2015 murder of Communist leader Govind Pansare.Earlier on Friday, the special investigation team (SIT) of the Maharashtra Police probing the case took custody of Mr. Andure who is lodged in Pune’s Yerwada Jail, from the CBI. It also took custody from the NIA of Ganesh Miskin and Amit Baddi, who are named in the murders of scholar M.M. Kalburgi and journalist Gauri Lankesh, and in the 2018 Nallasopara arms haul case. The two are lodged in Arthur Road Jail in Mumbai.The SIT arrested the trio and produced them in court, which remanded them to 10 days in police custody.With their arrest, 12 people have so far been named in Pansare’s murder, including Sarang Akolkar and Vinay Pawar, two absconding members of the Sanatan Sanstha who agencies had earlier said to have actually shot the Communist leader.Arguing for the custody of the three accused, government prosecutor Shivajirao Rane said they were present at a meeting presided by radical Hindutva activist and ENT specialist Dr. Virendra Tawde — named as the mastermind in Dabholkar’s murder — in Belagavi a week before the attack on Pansare on February 16, 2015. “The trio had also received arms training in Belagavi,” Mr. Rane said.Meanwhile, Mr. Andure claimed in court that he had been assaulted and abused by Additional Superintendent of Police Tirupati Kakade, who is the case investigating officer in the Pansare murder, when he was lodged at the Yerwada Jail in connection with Dabholkar’s murder.Defence counsel Sameer Patwardhan said, “Mr. Andure said he feared a similar recurrence in police custody while being interrogated about the Pansare murder and as a result would be lodging a complaint with the National Human Rights Commission.” Probe so farPansare and his wife, Uma, were repeatedly shot at close range by motorcycle-borne assailants while returning from a morning stroll in Kolhapur’s Sagar Mal locality on February 16, 2015. While Ms. Pansare survived the attack, her husband succumbed to his wounds in Mumbai’s Breach Candy Hospital on February 20, 2015.Seven months after the crime, the SIT made its first arrest in the form of Sanatan Sanstha activist Sameer Gaikwad, who was picked up from Sangli district. However, following much foot-dragging on part of probe agencies, Mr. Gaikwad was granted bail by a local court in June 2017.In January last year, the Kolhapur sessions court had also granted conditional bail to Dr. Tawde in connection with his suspected role in Pansare’s killing.According to probe agencies, Tawde is a crucial link to the murders of both Pansare and Dabholkar. The SIT’s supplementary charge sheet even names Dr. Tawde as the mastermind in the Pansare murder, suspecting him of conducting the reconnaissance before the murder.In November 2018, Amol Kale, a key accused in the Lankesh murder, was arrested by the SIT in connection with Pansare’s murder. Amit Degwekar, another co-accused in the Lankesh case, too, had been arrested by the SIT.Then in June this year, the SIT arrested and interrogated Sharad Kalaskar, alleged to be an assailant who shot Dabholkar, in connection with Pansare’s murder.The SIT had secured Mr. Kalaskar’s custody from the Mumbai Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) on grounds of his close affinity to fringe rightwing groups in Kolhapur and Belagavi. According to the SIT, Mr. Kalaskar had manufactured firearms in Kolhapur and Belagavi and had a key role in the conspiratorial meetings held in Belagavi to murder Pansare.The Mumbai ATS had first arrested Mr. Kalaskar along with fringe rightwing activist Vaibhav Raut from Nallasopara in Mumbai, and Sudhanwa Gondhalekar from Pune on August 10 last year for allegedly planning disruptive activities in the State.Investigating agencies have alleged that Mr. Kalaskar was an expert in arms manufacturing and was part of the wider conspiracy that links the murders of other rationalist-activists, Pansare and Lankesh.Motorcycle-borne assailants had killed Dabholkar on August 20, 2013 with a 7.65-mm country-made pistol when he was taking his morning stroll on the Omkareshwar Bridge in Pune. The same modus operandi was used in the murders of Pansare, Kalburgi and Lankesh.last_img read more

Football The cost of recruiting in the Big Ten Conference

OSU recruits Trevon Grimes and Tyjon Lindsey visited Columbus for the OSU vs. Nebraska football game on Nov. 5. Lindsey has since decommitted. Credit: Giustino BovenziOn Nov. 5, the Ohio State Buckeyes were getting ready to take on the Nebraska Cornhuskers for an 8 p.m. showdown in Columbus. Not only were these two teams slugging it out to continue the quest for a national championship, but this game served as a massive recruiting battle for the Buckeyes. More than 20 four- and five-star high-school recruits paid visits, both official and unofficial, to Ohio Stadium to decide whether to commit to the Buckeyes.After the Buckeyes destroyed the Cornhuskers 62-3, recruits met with Urban Meyer and took pictures with their potential jersey numbers to cap off OSU’s full-on press to sway some of the nation’s top talent.Meyer often refers to recruiting as the “lifeblood of the program.” But how much money is spent to acquire that lifeblood?In a months-long project, The Lantern analyzed how much money was spent on recruiting by OSU and the rest of the Big Ten Conference.As the Big Ten team with the most wins and only football national championship in the past four years, the numbers show the Buckeyes spend, on average, on pace in comparison to the other schools in the Big Ten.Records show OSU spent just over $2 million on recruiting from 2012 to 2015. Though that might seem like a lot, other schools spent more.The Big Ten’s biggest spender, Nebraska, spent $3.46 million to expand its recruiting reach.The lowest-spending team, the Wisconsin Badgers, spent just $1.02 million.When you break down OSU’s $2.009 million, it averages out to $502,439 per year from 2012 to 2015. Divide spending by wins, and OSU spent $40,423 per win, giving them the second-lowest cost per win (CPW) rate in the conference.Bubba Bolden (left) and Tate Martell (right) visit Columbus for the OSU vs. Nebraska game on Nov. 5. Bolden has since committed to USC. Credit: Giustino Bovenzi“I don’t know what other people spend money on, but we’re really financially conscious just because one: There’s no need to be frivolous with money, and two: That’s something you want to do for your administration, for your athletic director,” OSU wide receivers coach Zach Smith said. “We don’t take first- class flights, we don’t stay in $400-a-night hotels, and I don’t know if that’s what they spend money on, but we’re real conscious because there’s no need for that. We’re just trying to do a job, and we have whatever we need to do that job.After analyzing yearly NCAA membership financial reports from fiscal 2012 to 2015, and conducting interviews with Big Ten officials, The Lantern also found that recruitment spending in the Big Ten rises each year.The findings were calculated from NCAA financial membership reports that detail each school’s complete financial budget for fiscal years 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015. Some universities, like Penn State, post financial records online.Thirteen of the 14 members of the Big Ten provided data, while Northwestern University, a private institution, declined to participate. The university is not subject to open-records laws that apply to public schools. Since 2012, recruiting spending across the Big Ten increased 39 percent. That spending commitment by conference teams has amounted to more wins for some schools in the past four seasons. One might think spending money on recruiting is an easy way for a football program to improve its record. But, as the data shows, spending on recruiting doesn’t always result in wins.After coach Urban Meyer took over in Columbus at the end of 2011, the Buckeyes spent $344,987 in 2012. That number grew to $614,619 in three years, showing a 78 percent increase. This is the third-highest rise in the conference during that time, behind only Penn State and Rutgers.OSU officials turned down a request to speak with Meyer about the commitment to recruiting, saying that he would be unavailable to speak to such topics during football season.OSU Vice President and Athletic Director Gene Smith backed the Buckeyes’ spending increases, explaining why there has been a drastic change over the past four years.“We always invest in what is necessary to be successful and recruiting is a part of that,” Gene Smith said in an email. He added that rising travel costs and “hosting expenses” explain the conference’s 39 percent rise in spending.The NCAA does not impose financial limits on how much a university can spend on recruiting. However, spending is limited to the following expenses: travel and lodging for coaches, travel and lodging (coach class airfare and a standard hotel room) for prospects and their parents on official visits, reasonable entertainment expenses (including three tickets to a home sporting event) and up to three meals per day for the prospect and his parents for football recruits.Additionally, there are strict restrictions on the timeframe when a recruit can be contacted by coaches. A full breakdown of recruiting rules and a yearly recruiting calendar can be found on the NCAA website.Smith said these comparisons are like comparing apples to oranges, because, geographically speaking, it’s easier for OSU and more centrally located schools to recruit nationally than it is for a school in the more rural parts of the country.“What it costs OSU to recruit in our geography compared to what it costs Nebraska from Lincoln (Nebraska) or Penn State from Happy Valley (Pennsylvania) is totally different,” Smith said. “Planes, gas, meals per diet regulations, etc., are all different.”Smith’s explanation provided reasoning why the Cornhuskers, the conference’s highest spending team, spent nearly $3.5 million on recruiting.Since Lincoln, Nebraska, is the westernmost school in the conference, it costs more to bring in recruits for official visits and fly out to evaluate potential players. John Jentz, executive associate athletic director and CFO at Nebraska, confirmed travel as the main driver for higher costs.“We have made a conscious investment in expanding our reach to find the best matches for our program,” Jentz said. “(In Nebraska) we like to say, ‘We are in the middle of everywhere,’ but few of those everywheres are reachable by car.”Nebraska’s 34 wins in the Big Ten since 2012 makes it fourth-best in the conference, but its $886,819 spending average makes for a $107,998 CPW average, which is the fourth-highest in this study. Despite the high numbers, Jentz maintained Nebraska’s dedication to improve the football program.“There is a recruiting budget established for each sport, each year,” Jentz said. “But if circumstances dictate more resources are needed for recruiting, we encourage identifying savings elsewhere to ensure success in recruiting.”The Cornhuskers are narrowly followed by the Penn State Nittany Lions, who spent a total of $3.441 million on recruiting over the four-year period. In fact, Penn State spent $1.391 million on recruiting in 2014 alone, the highest of any school in the Big Ten from 2012 to 2015.OSU coach Urban Meyer addresses the crowd at a Skull Session prior to OSU’s game against Nebraska on Nov. 5. Credit: Giustino BonvenziPenn State’s increased spending is explained by other circumstances. Specifically, 2012 was the first year of NCAA-imposed sanctions from the child sexual abuse scandal involving former assistant coach Jerry Sandusky.The number of scholarships dropped from 85 to 65 before the sanctions were gradually, and eventually, lifted. Despite the fact that traveling in general was reduced by the scholarship restrictions, selling a rebounding program to potential recruits is not an easy task.The team that spent the most on recruiting per win was the Purdue Boilermakers. With only 12 wins during four years, their relatively frugal spending on recruiting flips into a $238,795 CPW. These numbers also show how each team has a different philosophy when it comes to recruiting. For instance, Wisconsin tallied the second-most wins with 38 in the Big Ten through the 2012-2015 seasons. The Badgers spent $256,080 on average for recruiting, making its $26,940 CPW the lowest in the Big Ten. Wisconsin Athletics Director Barry Alvarez was unavailable for comment.Since accepting the job as the Buckeyes head coach, Urban Meyer has amassed 50 wins in his first four seasons. The Big Ten historically has been a conference that sticks to recruiting the Midwest. Meyer expanded the program’s reach across the country.OSU redshirt junior quarterback J.T. Barrett, a Wichita Falls, Texas, native, hoped to be recruited by the University of Texas, but never got the call from former coach Mack Brown and the Longhorns. Barrett was then lured to Columbus by then-OSU offensive coordinator, now Longhorns coach, Tom Herman.Meyer openly speaks of how Barrett’s recruitment was unorthodox, admitting that Barrett was the first quarterback prospect he’s ever offered a scholarship without seeing him throw. Statistically speaking, Barrett is among one of the greatest quarterbacks in Buckeye history.A RECRUITING STIGMARecruiting spending is a not topic athletic departments usually discuss with media outlets, partly because a recruiting violation could be uncovered. Think of Reggie Bush accepting benefits at USC, or “Tattoo-Gate” at OSU. In Bush’s case, the violations caused severe penalties for the Trojans, who then had to vacate numerous wins, including their 2004 National Championship and Bush’s Heisman Trophy.A more recent example comes from just last year before the 2016 NFL draft. Top prospect Laremy Tunsil of Ole Miss was outed by his stepfather, who released a bong mask video via Instagram. The hacked account also leaked screenshots of text conversations with a coach that detailed pay for Tunsil’s rent and his mother’s utilities. Tunsil later admitted to accepting illegal benefits during his playing days after he was drafted No. 13 overall by the Miami Dolphins.Most of the data the 13 participating schools provided was fiscal year figures that are reported as a lump sum of recruiting spending.Ohio State provided an additional report with more in-depth explanation of its recruiting spending, including a ledger of coaches’ traveling expenses.The detailed data showed expenditures from Meyer and nearly all of his assistants. The data was clean as far as showing any wrongdoings by the program, but maintaining this detailed data set does have its complications.OSU Athletics Chief Financial Officer Joe Odoguardi said OSU is working to create a newer and better system.“Right now we’re in the process of getting a new travel system that would allow us to (analyze) something like this better electronically, but unfortunately it’s being developed in-house and it’s been delayed for numerous reasons that are too long to explain,” Odoguardi said. “Once something like that is developed, something like this will be a lot easier to produce.” read more

Ohio State mens track and field cross country coach resigns

The coach of both the Ohio State men’s track and field and cross country teams, Ed Beathea, announced his resignation Tuesday, according to an OSU press release.The Indiana native is set to head back to Indiana University, where he spent 10 seasons as both an assistant coach and the Hoosiers’ associate head coach, and is slated to assume his former position as associate head coach for the 2014-2015 season, according to the Indiana athletics site.Beathea, who has been the coach of the men’s track and field program at OSU since 2012 and an associate coach in the program since 2006, is set to continue coaching the Buckeyes through the 2014 NCAA Outdoor Championships later this month.In a statement in the press release, Beathea expressed his gratitude for the eight years he spent at OSU as a coach in the track and field program, and expressed that it was the right time for him to move forward.“My family and I will always be grateful for the opportunity the Ohio State University has provided me and the university will provide us with fond memories,” Beathea said. “I am leaving this program in a very positive place. We have built a strong team that has proven the ability to compete at a national level. It was a difficult decision but in the end it is a good decision for me and my family. Thank you for supporting me and our program.”T.J. Shelton, the associate athletics director for sport administration at OSU, also made a statement in the release thanking Beathea for his time in Columbus.“The department of athletics would like to thank coach Ed Beathea for his leadership over the past eight years, including two as head coach of the men’s track field and cross country programs,” Shelton said. “We wish Ed and his family the best as they move forward with their next chapter of their lives. We will begin a national search immediately for the next head coach to lead our program.”Since taking over the program in 2012, Beathea has coached 2013 First Team All-American Michael Hartfield, 2014 Second Team All-American LaMar Bruton, and the 2014 Big Ten Indoor Champion in the 4×400 relay, Jordan Rispress.The 2014 NCAA Track and Field Championships are slated to run from June 11-14 in Eugene, Ore., and both Burton and Rispress are set to represent OSU at the event. read more

Wrestling Ohio State takes down conference wins Big Ten title – full

The Ohio State wrestling team earned four individual Big Ten titles en route to the program’s second team conference title in three years. Credit: Courtesy of OSU AthleticsThe Buckeyes entered the Big Ten Championships as a slight underdog to Penn State and Iowa, but that didn’t stop them from taking home the Big Ten title outright for the first time since 1951. It’s OSU second title in three years.Four wrestlers were named individual champions, two earned second-place finishes and a seventh earned third place.Redshirt junior Nathan Tomasello won his third Big Ten title and first at 133 pounds, junior heavyweight Kyle Snyder won his second, redshirt junior 174-pounder Bo Jordan won his first after two finishes as a runner-up and redshirt freshman Kollin Moore took home the 197-pound title.In addition to the four champions, two others made it to the finals, including 2016 174-pound national champion sophomore Myles Martin, who lost to Iowa’s Sammy Brooks, and 149-pound redshirt sophomore Micah Jordan, who lost to Iowa’s Brandon Sorensen.At the end of the day, OSU scored 139.5 points as a team — Penn State was their closest competition with 130 — and were crowned Big Ten champions, but not without some drama involved.Tomasello carried an undefeated record into competition, and was challenged fiercely throughout the tournament. Rutgers’ Scott DelVecchio battled, but Tomasello took him down with a 6-4 decision before beating No. 5 Stevan Micic of Michigan to advance to the finals.There, Tomasello faced his toughest opponent yet, and one he had little familiarity with this season — Iowa’s Cory Clark. Clark was the second-highest ranked wrestler at 133 pounds at the tournament, and was absent from the Buckeyes’ Jan. 27 matchup with the Hawkeyes.This lack of familiarity may have been a hurdle for Tomasello, but he emerged victorious with a last-second escape to seal a 5-4 decision victory.   Bo Jordan, who has been battling injury for much of the season, recently returned to the lineup and was defeated by Cornell’s Brian Realbuto on Feb. 19, the Buckeyes’ last competition before the Big Ten tournament. The injury didn’t affect his pre-seeding, as he entered the tournament as the No. 1 wrestler in his weight class.In the quarterfinals, Bo Jordan notched a 10-8 decision over Indiana’s Devin Skatzka and then a 14-8 decision over No. 4 Myles Amine of Michigan to advance to the finals. There, he faced No. 2 Penn State wrestler Mark Hall in one of his toughest matches to date. Hall jumped out to a 2-1 lead with more than a minute of riding time accumulated after one period, but Jordan was able to trade blows with Hall in the second, before a scoreless third period sent the match to overtime at 4-4.Bo Jordan then took down Hall 20 seconds into sudden victory to clinch his first Big Ten championship.Moore has been impressive all season for the Buckeyes, as he suffered only three losses during the dual meet season — but two of those losses came against Minnesota senior No. 1 Brett Pfarr.Those dual-meet losses seemed to provide some motivation for Moore heading into the finals matchup, and Moore was aggressive from the start with Pfarr, getting a takedown within the first 10 seconds of competition.Moore began to take control of the match at the end of the first, as he closed the period with an 11-4 lead and nearly 40 seconds of riding time. It was a lead that Moore wouldn’t relinquish for the rest of the match. Moore finished with a 15-11 win over Pfarr for the Big Ten title.At heavyweight, not only were the two wrestlers the top Big Ten pre-seeds, but they were also the top-ranked wrestlers in the division, regardless of conference in Snyder and Wisconsin’s Connor Medbery.Snyder, a world champion and defending Big Ten champ, again proved why he continues to claim the top spot in heavyweight rankings.Snyder pulled away to a 4-1 lead after two periods, but Medbery fought hard in the third, pulling the score to 7-5 in the last 10 seconds to make the match close.Snyder notched a last-second escape to score the final point of the match, and secured an 8-5 victory in the Big Ten championships.As for the Buckeyes who lost in the finals, they were not without their impressive moments. Martin upset top-ranked Bo Nickal in the semifinals. Nickal and Martin have quite the history, as Martin took down Nickal to win the 174-pound national championship in 2016, but then Nickal defeated Martin during the Buckeyes’ regular season loss to Penn State Feb. 3.Micah Jordan also took down an opponent who beat him in the regular season, as he battled for a 2-1 victory over Iowa’s No. 2 Brandon Sorensen. Jordan lost to Penn State’s Zain Retherford in the championship match. read more
