Latest: Watford 0 QPR 0

first_imgMatt Phillips had a thunderous drive pushed over by Watford goalkeeper Manuel Almunia as QPR made a lively start to the second half at Vicarage Road.Rangers had most of the first-half possession and Niko Kranjcar, playing as a lone striker, fired inches wide of the target.With Charlie Austin out with a hamstring injury, Kranjcar was handed an unfamiliar role while Yossi Benayoun was given a starting place in midfield.The Croatian sent another effort wide and an early attempt well over the bar.At the other end, Richard Dunne produced a superb last-ditch tackle to deny Diego Fabbrini as the Watford forward burst into the box, before Rob Green was able to gather Sean Murray’s deflected shot.And Green was called into action again seven minutes after the restart, when Fabbrini shot straight at the R’s keeper from 10 yards. QPR: Green, Simpson, Onuoha, Dunne, Assou-Ekotto, Barton, Carroll, Benayoun, Phillips, Hoilett, Kranjcar.Subs: Murphy; Traore, Johnson, Henry, Zamora, O’Neil, Sendles-White.Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

Results of 2016 Lake Erie Walleye and Yellow Perch hatches released

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Early data gathered by wildlife agencies in the western basin of Lake Erie indicate that the yellow perch hatch was near its annual average while the walleye hatch was below average, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR).Each year in August, wildlife agencies from around the western basin of Lake Erie sample the waters using bottom trawls in search of young of the year walleye and yellow perch. Data from these bottom trawls are combined into a basin-wide index, and fisheries biologists compare the figures to previous years to estimate the success of the walleye and yellow perch hatches. Biologists from the ODNR Division of Wildlife conducted bottom trawling surveys at nearly 40 sampling locations across Ohio waters of the western basin. This data provides biologists with an estimate on how many young fish will enter the fishable population two years later.Based upon results from the August trawl surveys the 2016 yellow perch hatch appears to have been successful in both Ohio and Ontario waters of the western basin. Initial results from the combined basin-wide hatch of yellow perch found 398 yellow perch per hectare compared to the long-term average of 406 yellow perch per hectare. Four good yellow perch hatches in a row should help the perch population in the western basin rebuild and lead to quality yellow perch fishing over the next several years.The 2016 walleye hatch was below average but is strong enough to help support the fishery. Last year’s hatch was the fourth highest on record, and those fish are still plentiful in the lake. Average to excellent hatches from four of the past 10 years have resulted in a broad range of walleye ages and sizes that make up the current Lake Erie walleye population. Results from Ohio’s surveys found 6.7 walleye per hectare. The average since 1988 is 27 walleye per hectare.Initial reports from bottom trawl surveys conducted by the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry in Ontario waters of the western basin show similar results. To estimate the basin-wide hatch of walleye, Ohio and Ontario bottom trawl data are combined. The resulting basin-wide average catch for 2016 is 9 young-of-the-year walleye per hectare compared to the long-term average of 32 young-of-the-year walleye per hectare.last_img read more

5 Cool Chromecast Hacks And Workarounds

first_img4 Keys to a Kid-Safe App Tags:#chromecast#cloud#connected TV#media#streaming Related Posts adriana lee 12 Unique Gifts for the Hard-to-Shop-for People…center_img 9 Books That Make Perfect Gifts for Industry Ex… 5 Outdoor Activities for Beating Office Burnout Note: This article was written in 2013. For more up-to-date Chromecast information—including some of its newest features—please refer to our latest Chromecast posts here. The bad news for Chromecast hopefuls is that the $35 device has sold out nearly everywhere. But there’s also good news: Because people swooped in to snag the device so quickly, all sorts of useful workarounds are already making their way across the Web.(See also: 10 Things You Need To Know About Google’s Chromecast)For new owners and potential customers interested in what this cheap streaming dongle can do, here are a few Chromecast tips to get you started. 1. Play Your Computer’s Local MediaAccess to local music and video files is obviously not Google’s primary intention—in fact, Web streaming from the likes of Netflix and YouTube was pretty much the belle of the ball at its press event last week. But the company didn’t make it impossible to access your home digital library, either. The secret to making it work lies with the tab casting feature. Chrome on the desktop can open many file types. Just open a locally stored media file—whether amateur home footage, torrented files or other videos—within the browser, or drag and drop it onto the Chrome application. In general, if it plays in the tab, it should play just fine via Chromecast. Just tap on the “Cast” browser extension button to send it to the Chromecast. What you need to know: The quality from a tab-casted video can appear fuzzy and/or pixelated, and you can experience other issues like hang-ups, skewed lip-syncing and lag, depending on the power of your originating device and the strength of your Wi-Fi network. Since audio files are generally much smaller than video, playing music wirelessly is more forgiving. And unfortunately, this only works in the desktop browser, as no mobile version of Chrome offers tab casting. Yet. See also: How Google’s Chromecast Lets Down iOS UsersThe takeaway: If a video file is available via Netflix, YouTube or Google Play, which directly support Chromecast’s cloud streaming, use those apps instead. Otherwise, you may want to intentionally lower the streaming quality (see below).  2. Watch Your Friends’ Shared VideosTab casting can not only free your local media files, it can also dish up your friends’ music and videos too, if it can stream online (and doesn’t require a Silverlight or Quicktime plugin). Let’s use the popular Plex service as an example. The free Web server, which streams media from home computers to mobiles and settop boxes, offers a sharing feature that can be pretty handy here. Plex users can actually grant other members full or limited access to their files on the Internet. Once again, since it plays in Chrome, it can also play via Chromecast. Even better, in Plex’s case, the Web interface is attractive and easy to use, making this accidental feature feel almost intentional. What you need to know: Since it relies on tab casting, it’s subject to the same video quality issues noted above.The takeaway: It’s a quick and easy way to view other people’s shared media remotely. But don’t expect stunning HD quality. In addition to any limitations presented by your computer hardware and Wi-Fi connection, you’re at the mercy of your friend’s computer/server and network. 3. Screen Cast Your Entire DesktopNot only can you cast your tabs, but you can send your entire screen to the TV as well, thanks to screen casting. Access this feature via the drop-down menu you get from clicking the “Cast” button in the Chrome browser.This feature has a big “experimental” label slapped all over it, and it should—it’s buggy, laggy and crash-prone. However, even in this rough incarnation, it’s still a benefit for those odd occasions when you need to share your whole desktop with a room full of people. (Fingers crossed that it will only get better with time.) What you need to know: There’s an important difference between tab casting and screen casting: Only the former can send audio. So if you play a video and screen cast it to your TV, the sound will still play through your computer’s speakers, but not your TV speakers. And the video quality can be even laggier than tab casting.The takeaway: This feature seems most useful for looking at photo slideshows or displaying web pages. For now.4. Tweak Settings For Smoother PlaybackStreaming music may not require a screaming fast network, but videos are another story. The smoothness of videos streamed or “casted” from your computer can vary depending on the power of your terminal and the strength of your wireless router. It also depends on how big your media files are. Higher quality videos come in larger files, and if all that data is moving like molasses through your wireless network, you may want to ease the traffic jam by adjusting your settings. See also: Have Chromecast, Will Travel … Er, Maybe NotClick on your browser’s “Cast” button, choose “Options” and check out the “Tab projection quality” section. There, you can see selections for Standard (480p), High (720p) or Extreme (720p high bitrate). If High or Extreme is activated, and you experience insufferable lag or choppiness, try Standard instead. What you need to know: This tip sacrifices a little quality for more seamless, less stuttery playback. The takeaway: You can change your streaming quality, depending on the particular environment. So if you plan to bring the Chromecast to a friend’s house, where the Wifi is killer, just boost the quality back up. 5. Pipe Video And Audio Into Different Entertainment SystemsIf you’re an audio fiend with a sound system that requires a direct connection from the source, then you might be dismayed with the Chromecast’s single HDMI plug for the TV. In that situation, a HDMI audio extractor could be just what the doctor ordered. The device acts as a splitter of sorts, breaking the HDMI into separate video and audio (S/PDIF) to feed two different sets of equipment. Of course, a good AV receiver can do the job as well, but those can cost hundreds of dollars. Meanwhile, a HDMI audio extractor can be had for less than 50 bucks.What you need to know: This may not work with all setups and with all types of TVs and audio equipment, particularly certain legacy systems. So check your specs carefully before picking one of these devices up.The takeaway: Whether you add a HDMI audio extractor or AV receiver to your setup, you can certainly create a decent “Chromecastic” soundscape. But either way, the expense will add to the cost of a setup that was supposed to be cheap and easy. Only The BeginningThese tricks are just the tip of the iceberg. TVs with the later version of HDMI (version 1.4) may be able to power the dongle autonomously without the USB cable or power adapter, and they may even wake upon Chromecast commands and switch input sources. This is plausible, considering the HDMI 1.4 spec is on Chromecast’s tech sheet, and Google even nodded to this capability in its press event (though the company didn’t offer specifics on it). As time goes on, and more people use Chromecast, more tips, tricks, hacks and creative uses are sure to emerge.

Let us know if you’ve come across any hidden functions or cool features—intended or no—in the comments below.Lead image by Madeleine Weiss for ReadWrite. Other images by Adriana Lee for ReadWrite.UPDATE July 30, 2013: ReadWrite commenter and XDA Developer forum member umer936 found a hidden way to access additional setting options. He writes: I found some extra settings on the Chromecast extension for Chrome.So I went to my Chrome extensions window and clicked “Options” for the Google Cast extension. In the tab, I right clicked > Inspect Element.I noticed that a section of the page had a “display: none;” so I removed that and got this: I can confirm that this works. The options pictured fall under a new section that suddenly shows up called “Custom mirroring settings.” Unless you know what you’re doing, I strongly suggest heeding the displayed warning: “Changing these may have unintended consequences. Be careful.” Thanks for the tip, umer936! UPDATE July 31, 2013: Just days after Chromecast launched, the device was already rooted. Not only that, but an audacious Redditor dubbed “braaains” seemingly figured out how to run a Gameboy emulator on it. We haven’t tried this ourselves, and we’re not recommending it, but if you’re curious about what it takes, you can read the rundown here. last_img read more

15 days agoTrent Alexander-Arnold open to playing in Liverpool midfield

first_imgTrent Alexander-Arnold open to playing in Liverpool midfieldby Paul Vegas15 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveTrent Alexander-Arnold says he’s open to playing in Liverpool’s midfield.The 21-year-old right-back grabbed 12 assists last season, the most ever by a defender in a single Premier League season.And after modelling his game on Reds legend Steven Gerrard, Alexander-Arnold would be open to moving further forward for Jurgen Klopp’s side.”Obviously I’m a defender first and foremost, then I want to try and help the team create chances,” Alexander-Arnold said on Wednesday. “For now the manager has decided I’m a right back. That’s where I’ll play. I’m really not fussed where I play. I just want to play football.”If a manager decides to use me in midfield, or as a centre-back or a striker then that’s where I’ll play.”He added: “[I modelled myself on] Gerrard, really. Everything about his game I always admired. I always studied him and wanted to be like him.”It’s maybe not that important to compare because at a young age, you haven’t achieved the things those types of players have. It’s difficult to say whether you will or won’t. Who knows? “For now, it’s about having an open mind and wanting to achieve those types of levels, wanting to be those types of players, wanting to reach the levels they’ve reached. “Being regarded in the same bracket as them is something the best players want.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

Bayern Munich end pursuit of Callum HudsonOdoi

first_imgBayern Munich boss Niko Kovac has announced their business in this month’s transfer window is finished to bring an end to their pursuit of Callum Hudson-Odoi.The highly-rated teenage winger had been allegedly keen on joining fellow English youngsters Jandon Sancho and Reiss Nelson in the Bundesliga this month.It’s understood that Hudson-Odoi has become frustrated with his lack of regular opportunities at Chelsea with most of his appearances this season coming in cup games.Therefore, Bayern had been strongly linked with a move for the 18-year-old after three reported bids of around £35m were turned down by Chelsea.Sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic even confirmed their “great” interest in Hudson-Odoi and had hoped to bring him to the Allianz Arena this month.However, in light of Maurizio Sarri’s announcement on Tuesday that Hudson-Odoi will not be going anywhere, Kovac has now declared that Bayern will not be making any more moves before tonight’s transfer deadline.“We will no longer be active in the transfer market,” said Kovac, according to FourFourTwo.Jadon Sancho, Borussia DortmundCrouch: Liverpool could beat Man United to Jadon Sancho Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Peter Crouch wouldn’t be surprised to see Jadon Sancho end up at Liverpool one day instead of his long-term pursuers Manchester United.“The teams do not want to let their players leave.

Music beyond boundaries

first_imgThe Hungarian Information and Cultural Centre is organising an event Music Without Boundaries by Delhi’s biggest and one of the most well-known choirs, the Capital City Minstrels on May 6 at its premises. The choir will be conducted by Carolin Remy. The concert celebrates 20 years of their existence. This time around, the audience will get to enjoy arrangements. As the title of the concert suggests, the repertoire will include a diverse range of music, keeping true to CCM’s dedication to music which has traces of Carnatic music. The singers will be supported by the well known Nise Meruno on Piano and Suchet Malhotra, with an array of percussion sounds adding special flavour. CCM is comprised of people from all walks of life. Different languages are spoken by various choir members. But the language that unites us all is music. A long-time member of ours, Tapas Bhardwaj is a visually challenged student and has earned the confidence and stage presence with his many performances on stage with CCM. Originating in 1994, the choir recently had celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2014.  Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’Over these two decades CCM has performed in more than 200 concerts at prestigious venues around the capital. The choir has also established strong cultural links with the Hungarian Information and Cultural Centre, Alliance Francaise, the Austrian, Italian and Vatican Embassies and regularly performs for important events at these places. CCM’s repertoire spans a wide range; from the earliest choral music to the entire spectrum of western classical music, and opera to ballads, folk songs, Broadway musicals, rock, pop, jazz as well as Indian music arranged for choir performances.
