Pittsburgh Steelers running back James Conner (30) is tackled by Atlanta Falcons defensive end Courtney Upshaw (91) in the first half of an NFL preseason football game, Sunday, Aug. 20, 2017, in Pittsburgh. (AP Photo/Don Wright)PITTSBURGH (AP) — Rookie running back James Conner set up Pittsburgh’s winning fourth-quarter touchdown pass in the Steelers’ 17-13 exhibition victory over the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday.Conner, the former University of Pittsburgh star who overcame Hodgkin’s lymphoma and a serious right knee injury to reach the NFL, broke off runs of 17 and 19 yards, leading to Bart Houston’s 6-yard touchdown pass to Justin Hunter.Conner was greeted with an ovation on the third series of the game when he made his first carry. The third-round pick busted off three other runs longer than 10 yards and ended his NFL debut with 98 yards rushing on 20 carries.Matt Ryan led the Falcons to a touchdown in his only series and finished 4 of 6 for 57 yards. In two series during the preseason, Ryan, the 2016 NFL’s Most Valuable Player and Offensive Player of the Year, has gone 6 of 8 for 88 yards with a touchdown and a 123.6 passer rating.Pittsburgh receiver Martavis Bryant played his first game more than 18 months.The NFL suspended Bryant in March 2016 for a second violation of its substance abuse policy. He also opened the 2015 season with a four-game suspension because of multiple violations of the league’s substance abuse policy. Bryant, who is still in the process of being fully reinstated by the league, remains suspended, but is permitted to participate in all preseason activities — including practices and games.Steelers rookie Josh Dobbs targeted Bryant on the first play of the game, but the offense sputtered with consecutive three-and-outs. Dobbs, a fourth-round pick, was 10 of 19 for 70 yards with an interception.Bryant, who had two catches for 20 yards, later fumbled an end-around, but made up for it with a 23-yard reception on a drive that ended with a field goal.Tevin Coleman got the start at running back for the Falcons with Devonta Freeman previously ruled out with a concussion. But the Falcons’ primary backfield focus was the competition for the third running back spot.Terron Ward, who ran for 48 yards against Miami, was strong again Sunday. He finished with nine carries for 37 yards and a touchdown. Ward ran for 151 yards in five games last season.Fifth-round pick Brian Hill rushed for 14 yards on seven carries. The former Wyoming product player also struggled in the team’s first preseason game against Miami, gaining 10 yards on nine carries.Falcons first-round pick Takkarist McKinley made his NFL debut.The defensive end had surgery for a torn labrum and fractured right shoulder socket in March and was held out of the preseason opener. The 6-foot-2, 250-pound McKinley had 10 sacks and 18 tackles for loss as a college senior last season at UCLA. He is expected to add punch to a pass rush that features Vic Beasley, who led the league with 15.5 sacks in 2016.WIDE OUTS OUTPittsburgh’s Antonio Brown and Atlanta’s Julio Jones, two of the top receivers in the NFL, sat out Sunday.Steelers coach Mike Tomlin held out Brown for the second straight preseason game. Brown finished second in the league in receptions (106) and touchdowns (12) and fifth with 1,284 yards in 2016.Jones was held out for the second straight preseason game following offseason foot surgery. Jones, who has reported no problems in his recovery, has been limited in training camp. The two-time All-Pro caught 136 passes in 2015, second-most in NFL history, and finished with 1,409 receiving yards last season.ALSO MISSINGFreeman (concussion) was previously ruled out in what coach Dan Quinn described as a precaution. Quinn previously said the injury is not expected to be a long-term issue. Freeman, the league’s highest-paid running back, has rushed for 1,000 yards in back-to-back seasons. He caught a 15-yard touchdown pass in the Falcon’s first preseason game.Tomlin held out quarterback Ben Roethlisberger out for the second straight preseason game. Backup Landry Jones also sat out with an abdominal injury.BIG PLAYSPittsburgh’s Trey Williams returned a punt 64 yards for a touchdown in the third quarter. Steelers linebacker Anthony Chickillo had two sacks. Pittsburgh’s Jordan Dangerfield picked off two passes, while Quincy Mauger and Akeem King had interceptions for the Falcons.INJURY REPORTSteelers nose tackle Javon Hargrave left in the first quarter with a concussion, and linebacker Steven Johnson sustained a hamstring injury.UP NEXTFalcons: Host hosts Indianapolis on Saturday night.Steelers: Host Arizona on Saturday night.___For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP_NFL
Caesars and MGM Resorts International, which owns the fight’s venue, expect their properties to sell out as the weekend approaches. But unlike the bullish market created by Mayweather’s fight with Manny Pacquiao in May 2015 in Las Vegas, hotel rooms are still available.The MGM Grand has cut its prices for the weekend three times, with a two-night stay now at $329 a night. Rooms at several other hotels on the Strip can still be found for $200 or less a night.Many VIPs and high-rolling gamblers need not worry about prices, they will be “comped” with free hotel rooms and tickets, as it is customary. Others not so lucky — but certainly with deep pockets — have booked the most lavish accommodations on the Strip.The villas at Caesars Palace (starting at $25,000 a night) and Nobu Hotel at Caesars Palace ($35,000 a night and previously used by the likes of Jennifer Lopez and Johnny Depp) have been claimed for the weekend.“We get a ton of requests for tickets. We have plenty of our high-end players and guests who come in specifically for the event,” Thompson said. “We put them up for the weekend and they will be attending the fight. We like to take care of our best guests.”McCarran International Airport spokeswoman Christine Crews said the number of private aircraft that flew in for the Mayweather-Pacquiao fight overwhelmed available apron parking and forced a taxiway to be closed and used as a jet parking lot. Crews said there is no plan to do that again this weekend but officials are requiring pilots to make parking reservations and encouraging the use of two nearby general aviation airports, in suburban Henderson and North Las Vegas.UFC fighter McGregor will enter a boxing ring for the first time as a professional when he takes on the undefeated Mayweather, who is coming out of retirement for a fight that will make him tens of millions of dollars.Just four days to fight night, there are plenty of tickets still available in the T-Mobile Arena, which seats 18,000 for boxing, and prices on the secondary market are starting to come down.Ticketmaster has hundreds of non-VIP tickets ranging from roughly $1,400 to $17,000. Still available are VIP tickets that include hotel accommodations, roundtrip airport transportation, an official souvenir, food and drinks.Those who can’t afford what’s supposed to be the year’s hottest ticket can watch the fight inside six of the seven theaters that regularly host Cirque du Soleil shows, which are going dark for the night.Restaurants, bars and strip clubs around town will also show the fight. Closed-circuit seats are available at various MGM properties, including hundreds for $150 each at the Park Theater just a few steps from the T-Mobile arena itself. By comparison, Mayweather-Pacquiao closed-circuit tickets sold out the day they went on sale.Pay-per-view sales at $100 each are expected to be in the neighborhood of 5 million buys, topping the Mayweather-Pacquiao record of 4.6 million.The city’s sports books say this will be the most heavily bet fight ever. So far most of the tickets are on McGregor, who is about a 5-1 underdog, with the William Hill chain saying a McGregor win would cost them more than $1 million.R&B star Chris Brown and his crew of dancers will perform at Drai’s Nightclub on Saturday. Other venues will see performances by Puff Daddy, Jamie Foxx, Travis Scott, Chase B and Kaskade. The night before the fight, 50 Cent, Trey Songz and Jeezy will have a combined performance.Win or lose, McGregor will have to party after the fight. The Irish MMA champion is scheduled to be a host at Encore Beach Club that night as part of a two-year agreement to entertain partygoers at the Encore casino-resort.The tallest observation wheel in the world, the High Roller at The Linq casino-resort promenade, will get in on the action by turning its lighting red, white and blue if Mayweather wins or green, orange and white if McGregor pulls off the upset.For fans who want to toast the fighters with something other than a Guinness, mixologists have created special cocktail menus. At the bars and lounges of The Cosmopolitan, The Pretty Boy is a mix of Ciroc pineapple, lemon and tropical Red Bull, while the Bob and Weave gets you Patron Silver, lime, lemongrass, lychee and cucumber soda. LAS VEGAS (AP) — The fight between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Conor McGregor may not have sold out yet, but that won’t stop Las Vegas from putting on its party hat.Sin City’s nightclubs have booked a long list of celebrities — including one of the fighters — and high-rolling gamblers and VIPs have snagged some of the most luxurious accommodations in town. Boxing-themed cocktails have even been concocted for the occasion.The social media-fueled Saturday night fight at the T-Mobile Arena will be a weekend-long, city-wide affair, though in some respects it may not tip the scales as much as a previous Mayweather fight.“It’s going to be a crazy weekend,” said Ryan Thompson, senior vice president and regional chief marketing officer for Caesars Entertainment, whose Planet Hollywood, The Cromwell and Caesars Palace casino-resorts on the Las Vegas Strip have a few rooms available. “The energy over that weekend is going to be on par with a New Year’s Eve in the city.”File- This Aug. 11, 2017, file photo shows Conor McGregor training during a media workout in Las Vegas.

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Joe Haden needed a job, a change of scenery and a chance at a Super Bowl. In this Aug. 21, 2017, file photo, Cleveland Browns cornerback Joe Haden (23) walks off the field after an NFL preseason football game against the New York Giants, in Cleveland. (AP Photo/David Richard, File) The Pittsburgh Steelers were more than happy to give the longtime Cleveland Browns cornerback a shot at all three.The Steelers signed Haden to a three-year contract on Wednesday night just hours after the Browns granted Haden his release.Haden, a two-time Pro Bowler, gives the defending AFC North champions an upgrade in the secondary in their bid to chase down Super Bowl champion New England.Haden’s deal has a total value of $27 million, said a person who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because financial details were not released. Initial talks between Pittsburgh and Haden were first reported by ESPN.The Browns cut Haden earlier Wednesday, breaking ties with one of the few fixtures for a franchise that has spent the entirety of Haden’s seven-year career rebuilding and then rebuilding some more.They don’t do that in Pittsburgh. The Steelers reached the AFC title game in January only to get blown out by the Patriots, with Tom Brady throwing for 383 yards and three touchdowns.Pittsburgh made taking a more aggressive approach a top priority and Haden is eager to prove he’s still an elite defender after two subpar seasons marred by injury.The former first-round draft pick has 19 interceptions in seven seasons, but has been limited to just 18 games the past two years. Haden’s signing adds spice to the season opener between the Browns and Steelers on Sept. 10.This is the second straight season the Steelers have taken on a former Browns defender late in training camp. Pittsburgh sent a sixth-round pick in the 2018 draft to Cleveland last August for former first-round pick Justin Gilbert. Gilbert never earned a starting spot, played in just 12 games and was released the day after the Super Bowl.The expectations will be considerably higher for Haden, who will get a shot to line up opposite Artie Burns.Ross Cockrell and Coty Sensabaugh have spent much of training camp vying for a starting spot, but both could take on lesser roles or perhaps even be out of a job entirely depending on what direction the Steelers want to go in when rosters are trimmed to 53 on Saturday.The Steelers took cornerback Cam Sutton in the third round of the draft and also have veteran William Gay and Mike Hilton in the mix, among others.Pittsburgh went 11-5 last season despite a middling performance against the pass. The Steelers finished 16th in yards passing allowed, 15th in interceptions and ninth in sacks, rankings they have said repeatedly during training camp need to improve if they want any chance at catching up with the Patriots.If Haden can recapture some of the form he displayed in 2013 and 2014, the Steelers could inch closer to ending New England’s vice grip on AFC supremacy.___AP Sports Writer Tom Withers in Cleveland contributed to this report.___For more NFL coverage: www.pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/AP_NFL

Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Related Posts A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… frederic lardinois Automatic translation tools like Google Translate allow you to get a very rough understanding of a text in a foreign language. For the most part, though, these translations are anything but perfect and can’t capture the nuances and idioms that professional translators can. Linguee, a Germany-based startup, is a contextual translation search engine that walks the middle ground between machine translation and online dictionary (with some crowdsourcing mixed in for good measure). The tool offers support for English, Spanish, Portuguese, German and French and is one of the best online translation dictionaries we have seen. The Web as a DictionaryUnlike most of the online dictionaries you are probably familiar with, Linguee doesn’t just replicate a licensed version of a print dictionary. Linguee also offers regular dictionary definitions, but what sets it apart from its competition is that the Linguee team developed something akin to a translation search engine. The company’s webcrawler looks for professionally translated texts on the public Internet that exist in two or more languages. The European Union, for example, publishes most of its documents and patents in numerous languages (as does the Canadian government). Linguee also looks for professionally translated texts on company websites and other public resources such as technical journals. Because of this wide range of source texts, Linguee often knows the translations of words that would otherwise only appear in highly specialized translation dictionaries.Once indexed, the company’s algorithms then a) decide whether the quality of the crawled translation is good enough (does the length of the two texts match, for example) and b) create a translation index for the words and idioms in these texts. As Finke told us, the theory behind the company’s tools is well known among academics, but before Linguee came along, nobody had really put these theories to work yet.As Linguee’s co-founder Leonard Finke told us earlier this week, thanks to this approach, the tools excels in handling words that have multiple meanings and in translation idiomatic expressions. While Google Translate, for example, turns “ballpark figure” into “Ballpark Abbildung” in German (a picture in or of a ballpark), Linguee knows the right translation (“Schätzung”). In addition to the translation itself, Linguee also displays examples of the searched for words in context.Besides the web version of the dictionary, Linguee also offers plugins for Firefox and Internet Explorer, as well as a dashboard widget for OSX.CrowdsourcingWhile Linguee mostly relies on its own algorithms, users can also vote translations up and down and suggest alternative translations. These votes are then taken into account by the machine-learning algorithm. Users who sign up for the service and offer a lot of good suggestions and contribute their own suggestions get to see an ad-free version of the site. As Finke told us, this is a good way to reward the tool’s most active users.

Captain Azhar Ali scored a century on Friday and led Pakistan to a six-wicket victory over Zimbabwe in the second one-day international to take an unbeatable 2-0 lead in the three-match series.Ali, dropped on 53, scored a career-best 102 off 104 balls with eight fours in Pakistan’s solid run-chase of 269-4.Ali featured in two half-century stands, adding 85 runs with Asad Shafiq (39) and a further 56 with Haris Sohail, who remained unbeaten on 52 for his second successive half century.”Modern cricket has become fast and you need to keep pace with it,” Ali said after becoming the first Pakistani captain to score a hundred in a successful run-chase.”It was great to see (Pakistan) bowlers restricting them to 268 on a very good batting wicket, but I believe we have a long way to go.”A suicide bomber blew himself up near the stadium during the game, Information Minister Pervez Rashid said on Geo TV. He said the bomber had tried to get closer to the stadium but was stopped by police. The bomber then detonated his payload, killing a police officer and wounding six others.Police had initially said the explosion, which was heard during the match, was caused by an electric transformer nearly a kilometer away from the Gaddafi Stadium.Security around the games has been tight during the entire tour, which is the first by a test-playing nation in Pakistan since gunmen attacked the Sri Lanka team bus in 2009.Earlier, Sikandar Raza scored an unbeaten 100 off 84 balls and Chamu Chibhabha, replacing suspended regular captain Elton Chigumbura, missed out on his maiden hundred by one run as Zimbabwe posted 268-7.advertisementAli lost 3-0 to Bangladesh last month in his debut series as Pakistan ODI captain, but his century ensured Pakistan won its first ODI series in 17 months after losing five in a row.Pakistan could have been 109-3 in the 23rd over, but Chibhabha dropped the Pakistan skipper at short cover off Graeme Cremer, one of four changes made by Zimbabwe.Stand-in captain Hamilton Masakadza rotated eight but Ali stayed focused after the let off before he was caught at point.”The guys tried hard with Raza and Chibhabha coming good but I think we were 20-30 runs short,” said Masakadza.Pakistan’s bowlers struggled for the breakthrough after Ali won the toss but surprisingly decided to bowl in temperatures of 41 degrees Celsius (105 Fahrenheit).After Pakistan’s fast bowlers toiled in the hot weather, offspinner Mohammad Hafeez brought the first success in the 19th over when he clean bowled Sibanda.Chibhabha hit 11 fours and a six but walked back in apparent disbelief after he was adjudged caught behind.Raza cut loose after Chibhabha’s dimissal and hit fast bowler Mohammad Sami for two fours and a six in one over as Zimbabwe scored 81 runs in the last 10 overs.Zimbabwe will round off its 13-day tour with the last ODI on Sunday after the African nation became the first test country to tour Pakistan after six years.
Kepa insists Chelsea have everything to play forby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveChelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga insists they have everything to play for going into the second-half of the season.Kepa meet Crystal Palace later today.On catching Liverpool and Manchester City, Kepa told chelseafc.com: “It’s true that they’re great teams and they’re in a great position in the table. Chelsea, we’re a bit off the pace, it’s a big advantage for them to have over us, but we’re going to try and get as many points to bridge the gap and who knows what will happen.”We’ve got the whole of the second half of the season, lots of points are available to be picked up and we’ll see how it goes. I’m happy with how things have been going at Chelsea, in results and my personal performances, but we need to improve so we can climb the table. I’ve got a lot of belief.”Obviously right now we’re in the middle of the season and our objective in the Premier League is that we want to finish as high as possible in the table. We want to be playing in the Champions League next season.”We’re still in the Carabao Cup, we’re in the semi-finals so obviously we want to try and win it, and with the Europa League we got through the group stage and the potential of winning it really excites us.”Going forward, we want to keep improving, keep getting to know our game, how we play, and the future looks bright for us in that respect.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say
NEW DELHI: Leader of Opposition, Vijender Gupta on Saturday asked the CM Kejriwal led Delhi Government which claims to spend Rs 7500 crore annually on health services as to what happened to 30,000 additional beds with all attendant medical staff and facilities which it had promised in its election manifesto 50 months back.He said that AAP had also promised that additional beds would include 4000 maternity beds. He added that when the AAP Government came to power in 2015, there were 9,817 beds in its hospitals. Accordingly, today this figure should have gone up to about 39,817 after 50 months of governance. “But it is surprising that in place of taking the bed strength to 30,000, AAP Government could struggle to increase just 213 beds in its hospitals. It failed to increase even a single bed in the maternity ward out of 4,000 promised. Thus, the Government could achieve 0.71% of its target. The poor performance should put the Government to shame which claims to spend 25% of its total budget on the health sector,” he said.
