first_imgNext Game: Drake welcomes Wisconsin on Sept. 7 to Cownie for a 7 p.m. match. The Badgers and the Bulldogs battled to a scoreless draw in Madison, Wis. last season. Wisconsin (5-1) has a win this year over then No. 3 Virginia.  Print Friendly Version Wisconsin 9/7/2017 – 7 p.m. Live Stats DES MOINES, Iowa – Freshman Olivia Bruce (Lakeville, Minn.) scored her first career goal and sophomore Shelley Lyjak (Bartlett, Ill.) added her first goal of the season for the Drake women’s soccer team in a 2-0 win over North Dakota State on Sunday afternoon at the Cownie Soccer Complex. Senior goalkeeper Haley Morris (Clive, Iowa) played the whole match and finished with four saves. Horner went deep into her bench as 22 Bulldogs played in the home win. It is the second shutout this season for Drake who as a team finished with 24 shots to 9 for NDSU. “There were a lot of positives, including Shelley and Wilder’s combination goal, Annie (Schmitz) put in a great performance, and a lot of our roster earned some game day experience,” Horner said. “Overall we are pleased to do well at home and are looking to recover and get ready to host Wisconsin.”center_img In the 68th minute (68:27), Lyjak added the insurance goal, as senior Hannah Wilder (Wheatfield, Ind.) collected the ball deep in the Bison and flicked a backwards pass to a sprinting Lyjak who shot it in the back of the net. Full Schedule Roster Drake (3-2), who had several early shot attempts just miss, got on the scoreboard late in the first half, courtesy of Bruce. In the 40th minute, fellow freshman Hannah Bormann (Amana, Iowa) gathered a goal kick by North Dakota State (0-6) and sent a pass to Bruce, who beat the goalkeeper, Julia Edelstein, and blasted the ball in the bottom right corner for her first career goal (40:35). It is the first career assist for Bormann. “We were focused on earning a shutout today,” said head coach Lindsey Horner. “NDSU has size and height and tested us in the air, and I was pleased with our response. We are really happy for Hannah and Olivia to connect on the first goal to give us a halftime lead. The beginning of the second half was too much of a back-and-forth game for our liking. We need to be able to put these games away, but we left ourselves open on the counter.” Previewlast_img read more

Instagram Rolls Back Terms Of Service Changes, Rolls Out New “Mayfair” Filter

first_imgTags:#Facebook#Instagram#mobile photography#Photo Sharing Services Facebook is Becoming Less Personal and More Pro… A Comprehensive Guide to a Content Audit The return to the former policy is a mixed blessing for users. While Instagram’s prompt response highlights the power of user feedback in shaping the app’s choices, it also marks a return to the considerably more ambiguous language of the original terms of service. In the proposed language, Instagram did more to outline its plans around promoted posts like those that Facebook employs in its news feed to generate revenue. Did Instagram Put The Cart Before The Horse?Systrom also stated that in the future, Instagram won’t make announcements of this kind without developing the actual plan that such a policy change exists to accomodate.“Going forward, rather than obtain permission from you to introduce possible advertising products we have not yet developed, we are going to take the time to complete our plans, and then come back to our users and explain how we would like for our advertising business to work.”That could be good news or bad news for users. While overhauling the app’s terms for hypothetical future use cases obviously spooks users, a fully developed ad product wouldn’t be quite as easy for users to overturn. Lasting Damage? It’s difficult to say if Instagram will actually see a dip in user numbers after this week’s policy fumble. Flickr’s app shot up the iTunes free app charts this week, hitting the top 20 range, according to The New York Times. Now Flickr sits at #78, with Instagram at #24.The boost might have been a spike in Instagram defectors, but it just as easily could be a result of buzz around the app’s newest update, which was released on December 19. ReadWrite has reached out to Yahoo, but the company has yet to comment. Even if photo-sharers show a renewed interest in Flickr, it may not translate into lasting damage for Instagram, which boasts more than 100 million users. National Geographic, among Instagram’s mist high-profile defectors, has announced its return to the service, where its account boasts 716 photos. Instagram’s Fate Is Tied To Trust In FacebookIn a stroke of good timing for Instagram, Facebook’s newest update to user privacy controls began its global roll-out last night. Facebook echoes Systrom’s efforts to renew user trust in Instagram, which has its fate bound to the world’s biggest social network. In an updated newsroom blog post addressing the new controls, Facebook takes a welcome stand on transparency: “We believe that the better you understand who can see the things you share, the better your experience on Facebook can be.” The update, aimed at making privacy settings more understandable, makes a direct effort to assuage users’ suspicion of the social network’s intentions around the intersection of privacy and revenue – the heart of this week’s Instagram ToS kerfuffle, too. Mayfair Brightens Things Up Oh, and that Mayfair filter, which now appears in the first screen of the app’s filter list, is a warm, pink-ish effect that darkens the corners and brightens up the center of a photo. Instagram suggests the filter for evenly and well-lit shots in conjunction with “lux”, the app’s punchy contrast tool. ReadWrite is not one to turn our noses up at a new Instagram filter, but the feature push kind of feels like a diversion. Instagram rarely updates its set of photo filters – and it just added a filter known as “Willow” on December 10.   Related Posts The Web has spoken. And it wants your paws off of its little-square-filtered-photos, thank you very much.In response to a tidal wave of backlash among users, Instagram has rolled back the portion of its new Terms of Service agreement that pertains to advertising. Instagram users seized on the section’s language, interpreting it to mean that the company would leverage user photos in future ad partnerships.In a blog post Thursday night, Instagram CEO Kevin Systrom clarified the issue in plain language: “Instagram has no intention of selling your photos, and we never did. We don’t own your photos – you do.” Then, in a new blog entry perhaps designed to change the subject, Instagram announced an update to its just-updated Android and iOS app that makes a number of minor improvements and adds a brand new filter – Mayfair.More on that later – the big question is whether the ToS backtrack means Instagram is really out of the woods?Meet The New Boss (Same As The Old Boss)Instagram’s new policy around advertising is its old policy, which has been in effect since October 2010. The proposed language, which prompted the backlash, is as follows:“Some of the Service is supported by advertising revenue and may display advertisements and promotions, and you hereby agree that Instagram may place such advertising and promotions on the Service or on, about, or in conjunction with your Content. The manner, mode and extent of such advertising and promotions are subject to change without specific notice to you. You acknowledge that we may not always identify paid services, sponsored content, or commercial communications as such.”The original/reinstated policy is this: “Some or all of the Service may be supported by advertising revenue. To help us deliver interesting paid or sponsored content or promotions, you agree that a business or other entity may pay us to display your username, likeness, photos (along with any associated metadata), and/or actions you take, in connection with paid or sponsored content or promotions, without any compensation to you. You acknowledge that we may not always identify paid services, sponsored content, or commercial communications as such.” taylor hatmaker Guide to Performing Bulk Email Verification The Dos and Don’ts of Brand Awareness Videoslast_img read more

Is Saina Nehwal unhappy with Shraddha Kapoor’s preparation for her biopic?

first_imgBiopics have been a current favourite with filmmakers for a while now. From Mary Kom to a recent Sanju, directors cannot get enough of the real-life stories on the big screen. And filmmaker Amol Gupte was not far behind in announcing a biopic on badminton player Saina Nehwal.It was in April 2017 that Shraddha Kapoor was roped in to play Saina in her biopic, but the actress is yet to begin shooting for the film.It’s been almost a year that Shraddha has been getting her lessons in badminton, but if the latest buzz is to be believed, Saina is still not convinced. According to a report in a leading daily, Saina wants Shraddha to pick up the sport really well before the film goes on floors.”It’s been a year and apparently, Shraddha hasn’t been able to ace the game. The Padma Bhushan recipient has been in constant touch with the team. She has allegedly told them that she will give a go ahead only when Shraddha is completely ready,” a source told the leading daily.That’s the reason that the biopic has been pushed by a year. Meanwhile, Shraddha has been caught up with her other projects. “Shraddha has been shooting back to back. She shot for Stree for around 20-22 days. Then, she had two big schedules for Batti Gul Meter Chalu. She’s now expected to begin work on Nitesh Tiwary’s next opposite Sushant Singh Rajput. So, there’s hardly any time for her to practice badminton,” added the source.advertisementALSO READ | Not Deepika Padukone but Shraddha Kapoor to play Saina Nehwal in biopicALSO READ | Is Shraddha Kapoor’s Saina Nehwal biopic shelved?ALSO WATCH | Shraddha Kapoor tells us what’s changed about her summer stylelast_img read more

He will never hide away. He understands what is expected of him. “For Belgium, he has shown he’s one of the best number nines in the world and I don’t understand why he’s being treated in a manner which he doesn’t deserve.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

Washington state governor tells British Columbians dont be daunted by Trump

first_imgVICTORIA – Washington state’s governor took aim at President Donald Trump in a speech to British Columbia’s legislature Tuesday, saying travel bans on immigrants and refugees have caused economic and moral wounds in the United States.Gov. Jay Inslee said people are questioning whether the U.S. will continue providing leadership around the world as a result of Trump’s presidency.“With everything happening in our White House in Washington, D.C., I know many nations have questioned our nation’s leadership on some very important issues and have questions whether my nation will remain a shining city on the hill,” said Inslee, who is a Democrat.Inslee drew a standing ovation when he mentioned Washington state’s decision to join a lawsuit to prevent Trump’s administration from deporting thousands of young immigrants brought to America as children and who live in the United States illegally, often referred to as “dreamers.”“They are not a danger,” he said. “They are dreamers.”Inslee is the first governor from Washington to address the legislature since 1984. He also held meetings with B.C. Premier John Horgan during his visit.In his speech, Inslee focused on fighting climate change and building stronger economic ties with B.C.“I want to assure this assembly that no matter who is in the White House, it won’t affect Washington state’s relationship with Canada or British Columbia,” he said. “It cannot stop us from moving forward on climate change.”He said people living on both sides of the border do not want to see rivers without wild salmon or the Salish Sea without orcas. Battling climate change is what today’s politicians will be remembered for a century from now, he added.Inslee’s speech did not mention the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion, which will increase oil tanker traffic on the West Coast. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau approved the project between Alberta and B.C. about a year ago.With more crude oil expected to move through waters shared by Washington state and Canada, Democratic lawmakers in the state introduced a bill to raise more money for spill prevention and response efforts.Inslee said he wants improved transportation links between Washington and B.C., including a high-speed rail route.Canada’s Pacific region and the U.S. west coast represent an economic, technological and environmental powerhouse, which could become the third largest economy in the world, he said.Inslee later urged people from British Columbia to travel to Washington state as an act of opposition to Trump’s policies.“We cannot be daunted by this particular president,” he told a news conference. “I don’t want people in B.C. for one second to think about not travelling to Washington state because they are concerned about the president of the United States. Maybe as a show of defiance you ought to come twice as often.”last_img read more
