England beat Australia in second ODI

first_img“I thought our bowlers were exceptional,” England captain Eoin Morgan said.“On a really hot day they coped very well.”All of England’s batsmen contributed to the run chase, which was always in control following a 117-run second wicket partnership between Jonny Bairstow (60) and Alex Hales (57).Joss Buttler (42), Morgan (21) and Chris Woakes (39 not out) all made handy contributions, while Joe Root held the innings together with a measured 46 not out.“We did enough to win,” Morgan said, adding: “It’s far from our best performance with the bat.“I suppose that’s exciting in a way. We’re two-nil up in the series and we’re still looking for a complete performance as a batting unit.“Hopefully that comes in Sydney in Sunday.”Jonny Bairstow (60, pictured) and Alex Hales (57) put on a 117-run second wicket partnership © AFP / Jason O’BRIENThe Australians went into the match without leg-spinner Adam Zampa, who proved expensive in the opening ODI in Melbourne on Sunday, opting for batsman Cameron White instead.They also handed debuts to paceman Jhye Richardson and wicketkeeper Alex Carey.However, the decision to go into the match without a recognised spinner proved costly on a pitch that helped the slow bowlers.Finch, who blasted his 106 from 114 balls, helped Australia get away to a quick start alongside David Warner.The burly opener looked like he was leading Australia to a score well past 300 but his dismissal, soon after that of Mitchell Marsh, ensured England were able to keep the Australian scoring under control.Finch and Warner both dominated the English fast bowlers, who pitched too short on the Gabba wicket.England captain Morgan turned to his spinners with immediate effect.Moeen Ali had Warner caught at slip for 35, bringing Steve Smith to the crease.The Australian captain struggled to 18 from 25 balls before part-time off-spinner Root trapped him lbw.Root then enticed Travis Head into charging down the wicket, only to chip a return catch to the bowler to leave the Australians on 124 for three.Marsh and Finch consolidated but the scoring rate slowed as they struggled to get Ali, Root and leg-spinner Adil Rashid away.The Australians then lost three wickets for nine runs to allow the English to take control.Debutant Carey made a quickfire 27 before he was brilliantly run out by Woakes, who used his football skills to kick the ball into the stumps as the batsman attempted a quick single.Woakes then had Mitchell Starc caught in the deep before running out Andrew Tye on the last ball of the innings.Smith conceded Australia were well beaten.“We’re not playing good enough one day cricket at the moment,” he said.“We were in a good position at 3-209 with 11 overs to go and we only scored 60 with seven wickets in hand,” he added.“That’s not enough against a quality English batting line up.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000England’s Joe Root (L) and Chris Woakes (C) celebrate the team’s victory as Australia’s Marcus Stoinis looks on during the second one-day international in Brisbane on January 19, 2018 © AFP / Jason O’BRIENBRISBANE, Australia, Jan 19 – England turned in an impressive all-round team performance to beat Australia by four wickets in the second one-day international at the Gabba on Friday.After restricting Australia to 270 for nine from their 50 overs, the English cruised past the total with 5.4 overs to spare.last_img read more

PRINGLE FIGHTS TO KEEP DONEGAL’S FISHING QUOTAS

first_imgIndependent Donegal TD Thomas Pringle has vowed to keep pressure on the EU Fisheries Minister over plans to privatise Ireland’s fishing quotas.There are currently plans to allow countries to buy fishing quotas from individual fishermen for the next 15 years.However Deputy Pringle says the move to introduce ‘tradable quotas’ would be a disaster for the industry here in Donegal and across Ireland. “We are totally opposed to this. If it is railroaded through then the Irish fishing industry will collapse.“It will allow Spanish and other EU fishermen to come in and simply buy up our quotas from individual fishermen for the next fifteen years.“That will mean lost jobs and a general erosion of our fleet,” he said.Deputy Pringle, as part of his role as a member of the Committee on Communications, Natural Resources and Agriculture, travelled to Brussels this week to meet with EU Fisheries Minister Maria Damanaki. The Killybegs-based TD said he was satisfied with what he heard from Commissioner Damanaki but stressed that Ireland must fight to keep its quotas for itself.England has already sold most of its quotas to Spain but Deputy Pringle said we should not go down that road.“It would appear that there is a softening stance and we must ensure that we continue to put pressure on the Minister.“The bottom line is that this is about protecting the very lifeblood of our fishing industry.“If we do not have quotas, then we do not have a fishing industry here in Donegal and across Ireland,” he said.

South African developers in Android finals

first_imgRainbow Racer is a physics-based racinggame that allows the user to navigate aball through a series of obstaclesinto a goal post.(Image: market.android.com) The Wedding Plandroid application is auseful wedding planning tool forbrides and grooms.(Image: market.android.com) MEDIA CONTACTS • Africa Press Centrepress-africa-external@google.com RELATED ARTICLES• Google nurtures talent in SA• SA whizz-kid in line for Google award • A tablet made for South Africans • Bringing internet to SA’s unconnected  Wilma den HartighTwo South Africans have done the country proud by being selected as finalists in the Android Developer Challenge for sub-Saharan Africa. Hosted by Google, the competition tasked entrants with developing new, high quality applications for mobile users in Africa and around the world, using Google’s open source Android operating system.Entrants were invited to submit applications related to three broad categories: entertainment, media and games; social networking and communication; and productivity, tools, and local and geo services.Five finalists were selected from a group of more than 200 submissions and 30 semi-finalists – among them are Herko Lategan and Richard Marsh from South Africa.The other finalists are Nigerians Chike Maduegbuna, Bobola Oniwura and Tope Omotunde, developers of AfriNolly; Kenyan David Lemayian for his Olalashe application; and Gerald Kibugi, also from Kenya, for Shopper’s Delight.The nomination is an important achievement for South Africa and sub-Saharan Africa as it recognises and honours the continent’s contribution to mobile application and software development.Rainbow RacerLategan’s application, Rainbow Racer, is a physics-based racing game that allows the user to navigate a ball through a series of obstacles into a goal post. To play the game, users have to tilt the device to roll the ball in a particular direction.Players can also compete and share scores in their country, region, and even against the whole world.Users have described Rainbow Racer as a highly addictive and challenging game with beautiful artwork and graphics.According to Google, the game has been downloaded from the Android Market more than 5 000 times since October last year. It currently holds a rating of 3.5 stars out of a possible five.Lategan works as a fulltime software developer in the Western Cape province. He remembers being just 12 years old when his love for computers began. Back then, he was experimenting with QBasic, a programming language.He says that he enjoyed developing the Android application. “My favourite programming languages are C++ and Java, and with Android I could use both,” he says.Rainbow Racer has been such a success that Lategan decided to establish Starburst Games, a game development company.Wedding PlandroidThe Wedding Plandroid application, developed by Marsh, is a useful wedding planning tool for brides and grooms. The aim of the application is to take the hassle out of wedding planning by managing wedding budgets, guest lists, wedding-orientated tasks and vendors – all from a central point.The budget section allows users to budget for more than 100 wedding and honeymoon items, including a pre-loaded list which users can customise to suit their needs.Marsh says that Android is an ideal and accessible operating system for application development. It was for this reason that he decided to submit his application to the Android Developer Challenge.“From my initial research, I found that Android provides the easiest, cheapest and most accessible method to get started with app development,” he says.Wedding Plandroid is also available on the Android Market and, with a rating of 4.5 stars, has already been downloaded more than 10 000 times since October 2011.More finalists from AfricaThe AfriNolly mobile application took first prize in the entertainment category of the Android Developer Challenge for sub-Saharan Africa.The developers explain that the application was created to showcase the African entertainment industry. It allows users to access African movie trailers, music videos, online comedy, celebrity updates, gossip and entertainment news.The Olalashe application is a distress-alerting mobile application that enables users to send a preset text message or email alert if they are in trouble. The message, which includes the sender’s location, is sent to everyone listed as an “in case of emergency” contact.The Olalashe application is ideal for mobile users in Africa as it and similar applications can increase people’s sense of security and make it easier to get help faster.“In Africa, the text message is the most widely used and accepted method of communication, thus it was the best solution for sending the alarm,” says Olalashe developer David Lemayian, founder and CEO of Capefield Ltd.The developers hope that neighbourhood watches or community policing organisations would use such applications in the future.Olalashe won first prize in the social category of the 2011 Android Developer Challenge for sub-Saharan Africa.Shopper’s Delight, developed by Gerald Kibugi, helps consumers compare product prices across nearby supermarkets using voice input and Google Maps, and also provides the location, distance from current location, and directions to shops mentioned.According to Google figures, it is becoming one of the leading mobile shopping applications in Kenya. Its developers hope to expand the application into more markets worldwide.last_img read more

BumpTop Gives You a Reason to Splurge on that Multi-Touch Screen (200 Free Pro Accounts)

first_imgfrederic lardinois Thanks to mobile devices like the iPhone and recent efforts by numerous hardware manufacturers like HP, touch and multi-touch enabled devices are slowly becoming more ubiquitous. While Apple users have the mythical iTablet to look forward to, Windows users didn’t really have a similar project to latch on to, except maybe for Microsoft’s large and costly Surface table. Now, however, BumpTop has released the latest version of its innovative 3D desktop environment with support for multi-touch gestures.New Multi-Touch GesturesIn Windows 7, Microsoft has now made multi-touch a built-in feature of the operating system and BumpTop makes full use of these capabilities. What makes the new BumpTop version especially interesting, however, is that the company came up with a number of pretty interesting gestures (PDF) that we haven’t seen in similar projects so far. You can, for example, push multiple objects on the screen around by pushing them with the side of your finger. Or you can crop an image by slicing across it with one finger while holding the image with another finger. You can now also easily drag and drop images and files from your BumpTop desktop to a USB key.The following video shows the multi-touch gestures in action: Related Posts A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… It’s important to note that the standard, free version of BumpTop doesn’t support multi-touch gestures – only the Pro version for $29 will. At the end of this post, however, you can find out how you can get a free Pro account.Tablets Need Dedicated Interfaces If the demise of Microsoft’s first tablet-PC initiative showed us one thing, it was that these kind of devices need a special user interface. BumpTop offers exactly this, so it doesn’t come as a surprise that the company is in talks with a number of hardware manufacturers to bundle BumpTop with their graphics cards, screens, and touch-enabled machines.Of course, even if you don’t have a multi-touch capable screen, or if you have a touchscreen that can only recognize two fingers at a time, BumpTop will still work just fine, though you will obviously miss out on being able to use some gestures.Next Version: Built-In Browser, Google GadgetsJust like the last version of BumpTop, the new multi-touch version will still take you out of the BumpTop environment when you start an application. When we talked to Bumptop’s CEO Anand Agarawala yesterday, he pointed out that the team is aware of this and working on a solution to this problem. The next version, which should arrive within the next few months, will feature an integrated WebKit browser, for example, that will be integrated into the BumpTop experience. This new version will also offer support for Google Gadgets.200 Free Pro AccountsBumpTop graciously gave us 200 free Pro accounts to give to our readers. Just head over to this site and you will be able to try BumpTop in all its multi-touch glory (assuming you have access to a PC with a touchscreen).
