Miles Robinson anchors shutout in return to Syracuse men’s soccer

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on October 14, 2016 at 11:32 pm Contact Matthew: [email protected] | @MatthewGut21 Pressure overran Marcelo Acuna as he struggled to gain his footing. Virginia Tech’s top threat could not leap for a floater near midfield.Because Miles Robinson had smothered him.Robinson denied Acuna the ball via a box-out. The Hokies star fell to the ground, unable to stay up let alone touch the ball. Robinson headed it to a teammate, setting up a shot on goal less than a minute later. Acuna lay on the ground, helplessly asking for a yellow card to be called on Robinson.“Especially in a game like this, with (Som) Essome and Acuna up front,” Syracuse head coach Ian McIntyre said of Robinson. “… We really needed him tonight.”Robinson anchored a stout defensive effort in No. 10 Syracuse’s (9-3-1, 3-2-1 Atlantic Coast) 1-0 victory over No. 15 Virginia Tech (9-3-2, 2-3-1) before 1,785 Friday night at SU Soccer Stadium. The 6-foot-2, 185-pound sophomore defender thickened an SU defense and nullified the Hokies’ offensive attack that looked outmatched from the start.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textRELATED: The best sights from Syracuse’s 1-0 wing over Virginia TechEarly in the first half, Robinson headed a ball near Syracuse’s box. He applied both power and precision on the ball, sending it out of the area to Liam Callahan, initiating an Orange fast break. The play didn’t result in a goal but showed what Syracuse had missed its last two games — the core of its defense.“The way he just wrapped his neck around it to clear it,” freshman midfielder Mo Adams said, in admiration. “Usually you clear it to the edge of box. He put it out wide.”Senior midfielder Sergio Camargo scored the game-winner in the 64th minute, propelling Syracuse to its first win since Sept. 20. SU had gone its last four games without a win, the longest such streak since October 2011.It marks Syracuse’s first shutout win since a 2-0 victory over then-No. 15 Boston College on Sept. 16. Friday’s victory doubles as the Orange’s first conference win since then. SU improved to 7-0-1 at home this year.Robinson led an SU defense that contained a deep Virginia Tech offense — 14 Hokies have netted a goal this season — to just one shot on goal. He anchored the defense, backed by Kenny Lassiter, Mo Adams and Louis Cross. Virginia Tech had only one shot in the second half compared to Syracuse’s 11.“Just a calmness,” Camargo said of what Robinson brings.Tony D. Curtis | Staff PhotographerRobinson, who spent the last week in England playing for the United States Under-20 National Team, landed in Syracuse Tuesday night. He practiced with the Orange on Wednesday and Thursday. With its returned center back, SU dropped into its standard 3-5-2 formation.At times, Robinson guarded Acuna by standing in front of him and denying him the ball. Syracuse denied third touches throughout the match. As soon a Virginia Tech player received a pass, be it near midfield or around the 18-yard box, SU defenders closed in. Robinson cleared several balls on such plays.“Just being in peoples’ faces,” Adams said. “I think that’s what we did tonight.”Robinson can take the space in front of him, allowing Adams the luxury of holding back in coverage. This enables midfielders Oyvind Alseth and Callahan to stay out wide and put crosses in the box on the other end.A week ago, Virginia Tech tallied nine shots on goal and three goals against Duke. Acuna leads the Hokies with nine goals, five of which are game-winners. He has three multi-goal games and just 11 days ago notched a hat trick. But Syracuse held him quiet, to five shots — only one of which came in the final 45 minutes.This was Virginia Tech’s first shutout loss all season long.Shortly before kickoff, Adams realized Virginia Tech was in a 3-5-2 formation instead of its normal 4-3-3. Syracuse had not expected this but — thanks to Robinson’s anchor — adjusted to what became a man-to-man battle.“With Miles back now,” Adams said, “I don’t really see us conceiving any goals.”Friday night was a glaring indication of what Robinson offers Syracuse. In the sophomore’s first game back, Syracuse captured a win that had evaded it the past four weeks. Commentslast_img read more

Survival of the Slowest

first_imgWithout stopping to think, the BBC News claimed that evolution is slowing snails down.  “Natural selection is favouring snails with reduced metabolic rates, researchers in Chile have discovered.”  Why would evolution do such a thing?  Isn’t the proverbial slowest of beasts already at risk of predators?  Not necessarily.  Look on the positive side: “Snails with lower metabolisms are at an advantage because they have more energy to spend on other activities such as growth or reproduction, the researchers say in the journal Evolution.”  Don’t tell that to your spouse.  The authors were not sure whether the decreased metabolism really made the snails crawl slower, but they figured that “nature is selecting for snails that are more energy efficient,” the article said.  It didn’t say whether the snails are turning green.All we need to do is repeat the prose from the 12/19/2007 commentary:The Story of EvolutionEvolution explains more complexity, and more simplicity.  It explains why flight arose in some birds, but was lost in others.  With evolution, organs and genomes can become more complicated, or more streamlined.  Eyes emerge through evolution, but eyes are also lost by evolution.  Evolution makes the cheetah fast but the sloth slow.  By evolution, dinosaurs grow to skyscraper size, and hummingbirds grow tiny.  With evolution, peacocks grow more flashy and crows more black, giraffes tall and flatworms flat.  Evolution explains predator and prey, loner and herder, light and dark, high and low, fast and slow, profligacy and stinginess, terrorism and altruism, religion and atheism, virtue and selfishness, psychosis and reason, extinction and fecundity, war and peace.  Evolution explains everything.Now you understand why nothing in biology makes sense except in the “light” of evolution.  By stating at the outset that “whatever happens, evolution did it,” evolution can’t be falsified.  It’s a completely vacuous theory that is true by definition.  It explains opposite things.  It can’t possibly be wrong, if you can mold enough skulls full of mush to accept the premise.  The only hard part is making up the just-so story to explain the de jure fact.  We think people should go for de facto facts.(Visited 44 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

How posting boarding passes on social media helps cyber-criminals.

first_imgPutting your boarding pass on Instagram and Facebook may be a fun way of sharing travel plans but it could be a is a huge mistake which hands online criminals powerful information.The advice from experts is:  don’t do it.Some Qantas frequent flyers have recently seen points disappearing from their account and the airline believes people with weak pins who post boarding passes on social media are particularly vulnerable.The airline says it is identity theft, rather than its system being hacked, that is the big problem.Information contained on a boarding pass includes your name and your frequent flyer number.But the bar code used to wave you through to the plane has other information embedded in it.Frequent flyer guru Steve Hui, of website iFLYflat, says the passenger name record (PNR) and date of travel could allow someone to log on while the ticket was still active to change a seat, a meal or even a flight.“It’s everything you would do as a ticket holder,’’ Hui told AirlineRatings.  “So while the seat is active that’s actually up for grabs.“Once you’ve flown that closes and you can’t access the site anymore but it still means people have your frequent flyer number.’’Hui said he was not sure how people with this protection lost points but noted people who advertised their membership number were more likely to be targeted.“I guess the thinking is if someone’s discovered a membership number then it’s worthwhile putting the hacking system,’’ he said. “But if you don’t have a number to start with then there’s random chance, you’re not going to pick them up.’’Hui said it was “pretty common” for people to post their boarding passes on social media but they would be better served to find other ways to advertise their trip, such as a selfie in the lounge or on the plane.Former Washington Post reporter and tech security blogger Brian Krebs, also advises people to shred their boarding passes rather than throwing them away.Krebs wrote on his blog about a reader who managed to decode a boarding pass by taking a screenshot and enlarging it.The reader was able to use the last name and the record locator — the code you type in to access your booking — to gain access to the traveller’s entire account on the Lufthansa website, including any future flights booked to his frequent flyer number from the Star Alliance.Krebs said the information contained in the boarding pass could make it easier for an attacker to reset the PIN number used to secure the traveller’s Star Alliance frequent flyer account using a “forgot PIN” website.In this case, the site asked a pre-selected “secret” question about the traveller’s mother’s maiden name — information which could be gleaned from the Internet.Another problem is people using weak pins such as 0000 or 9999.Qantas has a four-digit pin and has also started offering two-step verification. This system requires members to use a unique SMS verification code before logging into their account.There is also an account lock-out process if someone makes multiple attempts to access an account using the wrong information.“While we can’t control identity fraud, there are multiple layers of security controls in place to protect our members’ personal information and points balances when a cyber-related incident occurs,” a Qantas spokeswoman said. “We continually invest in our people, processes and technology to protect the security of our members and their accounts.’’Qantas also offers frequent flyer members a security tips page to help frequent flyer members remain secure online.These include ways to set up a strong password, use two-step verification and recognise phishing attempts, a process where criminals use disguised emails or websites to try and extract information.last_img read more

A doctor to heal the earth

Top 50 Social Brands of 2009. Spoiler: You Know All of Them

first_imgThe Dos and Don’ts of Brand Awareness Videos Guide to Performing Bulk Email Verification mike melanson Related Posts “2009 was the year of Social Media” according to Buzz Study, the blog that keeps tabs on Infegy’s Social Radar. They’re not speaking from experience, they’re speaking from what they’ve seen in the billions of “blog posts, news feeds, forums, social networks and Twitter posts” the service has collected over the past two years. While the service normally provides more complex information around a certain brand, as in its tracking of the Domino’s Pizza PR disaster this past September, the top 50 list takes an easier approach: how many unique sources mentioned a brand over the past year. So what brand was the talk of the town in 2009?Why, Twitter, of course. Google, which had previously held the number one spot, took second prize and Facebook jumped up six spots to round out the top three. While you can take a look at the full list of 50 top brands yourself, Buzz Study had this to say about the results:The list certainly shows that 2009 was the year of Social Media. Twitter moved ahead of Google to take the number 1 spot, while Facebook and MySpace made significant leaps over big brands as well. Most video game related brands were down this year as well, including Sony, Wii, Xbox, and Nintendo. It also appears TV brands all jumped this year including Disney, MTV, Fox, BBC, CNN, ESPN, and ABC.Blackberry, MTV and Starbucks were among the top movers in this years list, with each rising 17, 13 and 12 spots respectively. Canon, Samsung and Intel were the hardest hid on the list, dropping 17, 16 and 13 spots from last year.center_img A Comprehensive Guide to a Content Audit Facebook is Becoming Less Personal and More Pro… Tags:#2009 in Review#news#twitter#web#Year in Review last_img read more

Quantifying Quality: Ranking The Top 60 Apps In iOS & Android

first_imgWhy IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … dan rowinski If nothing else, the Applause Index is an enlightening and entertaining way to judge app quality from a quantifiable perspective. Is Applause a perfect system? No. What it does do is provide a certain criteria of data that allows people – brands, analysts, app makers, journalists, etc. – a decent idea of what people think of a certain app.  Related Posts The Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technology Tags:#analytics#Android#iOS When app quality analytics service Applause was launched at the end of January, it caused a bit of a firestorm when it used an algorithmic analysis of inherently subjective data to quantify iOS and Android app quality. And you know what it revealed? People think that iOS apps are better than Android. That assertion alone was enough to send the local chapter of the iPhone or Android Fan Boy Clubs into a fit of glee or burbling rage, depending on the allegiance. The company behind Applause, Boston-based uTest, took the reaction to heart. As a response, Applause is launching the Applause Index, a daily look at its rankings for 60 of the top apps that can be found on both iOS and Android. When ReadWrite had Applause run the data on all iOS and Android apps in January, one argument (among many) was that the sample apps we had Applause specifically dig into were not representative of the entire body of work of each app store. So, Applause disassembled the sample for the Applause Index, making sure that there was basically 100% overlap between iOS and Android for the indices. Applause also broke apps down in to sub-categories so people could take a closer look at how top apps in categories like Productivity, Games, Entertainment, Travel, Sports, Content and so on compare. No Winning When It Comes To SubjectivityNumbers like these are usually controversial. Reports that Android will hit the arbitrary number of 1 million apps first in Google Play usually draw comments of “non-story” asking for data on the quality of those apps. When data is made available to do something that is akin to impossible – quantifying inherently subjective data – it is torn apart.The fact of the matter is that as long as we are pitting iOS against Android in any type of race, war, comparison, etc. somebody is always going to be unhappy. Outside of just handing out the algorithm, Applause has been very forthcoming with its methods. With the new daily Applause Index, the company is also being liberal with its data that show what is essentially a crowd-sourced average score of perception, fine tuned through an algorithmic approach and spread across more than a million apps. Critics of Applause do have some valid concerns. Foremost, user ratings are not cross-checked between iOS and Android versions (it is not “double blind”). If we really want to get a good view of comparative app ratings, we would make iOS users rate Android apps and Android users rate iOS apps without telling them which is which. The problem with that approach is that it is extraordinarily cumbersome to do at scale and relies on users opting in to a double-blind study. Another problem falls into the vague category of sociological phenomena. Mainly, there is a perception that iPhone and iPad users are more loyal to their platform and hence more likely to rate apps higher. That is an opaque assertion and very difficult to quantify with actual data, outside of widely distributed surveys, which are in and of themselves also inherently subjective.  From the Android perspective, many argue that Android app ratings would be inherently lower than iOS because of the fragmentation of the Android ecosystem. For example, if one user has an HTC Desire running Android 2.3 Gingerbread and another user has a Samsung Galaxy Note II running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, are they really going to rate an app the same way? The Note II user is likely to rank an app higher because the phone is newer, has better internal components and a better version of the operating system. Applause cannot, as yet, differentiate those two reviews and still provide an accurate score. The fact of the matter is that some apps just do not work as well on some.If Users & Devices Are Not The Same, Make Sure The Apps AreThe criteria for the Applause Index includes:uTest chose the apps for the Applause Index very carefully. It applied a criteria to the top 60 apps chose for the index to make sure they are as similar as possible. Number of app versions and app reviewsLength of time app has been availablePerformance data across Applause AttributesRepresentative allocation across sub-indices100% overlap between iOS and AndroidUsing those guidelines, uTest picked a group of apps that are a decent snapshot of each app category. Applause has crawled a total of 1,177,456 apps between iOS and Android, analyzing more than 60 million reviews and star ratings between them.Here is a snapshot of today’s rankings between iOS and Android apps in the Content, News & Books category.
