He will report to Diane Greene, CEO of Google Cloud and board member of Google parent Alphabet.Rhee said in the post he aims to harmonise the company’s “many IoT related products and assets”, and grow “Google IoT into a sustainable and profitable business line”.“One of the first things I would like to do with my Google colleagues is to get these efforts coordinated and aligned towards a concerted IoT story of Google – [and] in the process create distinct consumer and enterprise product lines,” he said.Rhee comes into the role after almost seven years at Samsung, where he served as SVP of enterprise business, EVP of enterprise business and m-commerce and, most recently, as CTO of its Mobile Communications business and head of R&D software and services. He is credited with playing a key role in developing Samsung’s security platform Knox, as well as Samsung Pay, the company’s mobile payments service, and the Bixby voice assistant.Google, like major rivals including Amazon and Microsoft, has been placing added focus on IoT and in 2017 introduced its Google Cloud IoT Core service. The platform is designed to help companies interconnect more devices and manage the data they generate in a centralised location using Google’s cloud and analytics services.

Jose Mourinho explains why Manchester United are defensively porous this season

first_imgAdvertisement o8bNBA Finals | Brooklyn Vs5x8Wingsuit rodeo📽Sindre Ebsk( IG: @_aubreyfisher @imraino ) 8g3feWould you ever consider trying this?😱8dt1Can your students do this? 🌚ti0xRoller skating! Powered by Firework The United manager, who has been staunchly defensive of his tactics at Old Trafford, admits he began his third season in charge with the intention of making his side a more attractive proposition.Advertisement He claims this new approach is to blame for United’s chaotic rear-guard this season, which has seen them concede more goals than any other team in the top 14 in the Premier League.Advertisement Only Manchester City conceded fewer goals than Mourinho’s side last season, with David de Gea winning the golden glove for the most clean sheets.But they’ve already conceded 18 goals in 11 games this term – and have only kept one clean sheet in the league. Against Bournemouth, Mourinho admitted his side could have been five or six down after gifting a plethora of chances to their opponents in a 2-1 win.Advertisement He claims their porousness at the back is the result of a significant tactical shift that has only highlighted the weaknesses he has been coping with since taking over at Old Trafford.“Because the approach was much more defensive (last season) and with a much more defensive approach you can hide better your weaknesses,” he said. “So when the team is really defensive and you have a more defensive mind then you base the work on that.“Then the team doesn’t develop enough in other areas, but the team managed to get results based on that.“I’m trying to find a balance where we develop the team in the second and first phase of attack and we develop the talented players that we have without losing the balance. When we are in control we have no problems, when the opponent is in control I think the team has problems.”  Advertisementlast_img read more

Roscommon and District League Pay Tribute to Ray Kirrane and Johnny Riddell RIP

first_imgWith the passing of Ray Kirrane and Johnny Riddell the Roscommon and District League lost two of its best known and loved people in the course of a week. Both Johnnie and Ray played a big part in the success of the League particularly during its early years. Ray Kirrane started playing in goals for his native and forever loved Castlerea Celtic back in the sixties before the formation of the Roscommon and District League. He played a big part in the formation of the very successful Roscommon and District league in 1970 and was a Referee, Chairman, Committee Member and President in the intervening years. He had an absolute love affair with the game and was one of the great characters of the game and was known and loved by people from all over the Country. Very seldom does a group of footballing people meet in Roscommon East Galway area without Ray Kirrane’s name being mentioned.Johnny Riddell and Ray Kirrane were really close friends and many the hours they spent chatting together with a love of the game and the Roscommon and District League a common bond.As a young man Johnnie played for Ballinasloe Town but it was as a Referee he was known all over Connacht. He was a top class Referee in the Roscommon and District League for over thirty years. His common sense approach made him a first choice Referee all over the province. His warm personality endeared him to everyone and when you met Johnnie in his native Ballinasloe time seemed to fly as all the recent games and incidents were discussed.Rather unusually Johnny never drove a car but his patient wife Betty drove him to all the games and she was as well known and loved as Johnny.The Roscommon and District League would like to extend their sympathy to the Kirrane and Riddell family.To Ray’s wife Mary and their sons and extended family we extend our deepest sympathy. To Betty Riddell and their Sons, Daughters and extended family we also extend our deepest sympathy.Heaven will never be the same again.May they rest in peaceprint WhatsApp Facebook Twitter Emaillast_img read more

My First National Conference

first_imgThis year was my first opportunity to attend SHRM’s Annual Conference and Exposition and I have to say I was overall very pleased with the experience.  There was no shortage of excellent speakers and sessions and the hardest part was choosing between them.  My favorite sessions were probably:From the Files of the Bizarre: The Latest, Most Unusual Employment Law Cases with Joseph Beachboard;  MEGA SESSION: Detecting Lies and Deception: Practical Skills for HR Professionals with Michael Wade Johnson;Leadership Communication: Develop, Deliver, Connect with Jeff Lanza;MEGA SESSION: Ego vs. EQ: How Top Business Leaders Beat 8 Ego Traps with Emotional Intelligence with Jen Skirkani.The exhibitors went all out and had some awesome giveaways and games such as trivia, free headshots, Wii games, and so much more to entice people into their booths.  I only spent a few minutes in one of the available lounges (the leaders lounge), but they seemed to be very nice options to catch some down time during the conference. I really only have two complaints: the food, and the lack of places to sit (other than the floor) and eat.  I understand that what was chosen was probably the ‘easiest’ for the setting, but considering how much the conference cost, it would have been nice to have better food options.  There were tables set up during the lunch hour, however there weren’t nearly enough for everyone, so the floor was my best option both days.Overall, SHRM’s Annual Conference was everything I had heard and expected it to be and really enjoyed networking and learning a lot.  If you have never been, I highly recommend you go!To read the original blog post, please click here.last_img read more

Google Launches Its Own Windows Phone 7 Search App

first_imgWhy IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces Tags:#Google#Microsoft#mobile#news#web frederic lardinois There are no major surprises here. The app gives you access to the majority of Google’s standard mobile search features (search suggestions, access to your search history, local search etc.) that are also available on the iPhone and Android, with the notable exception of voice search. This is an interesting omission, especially given that Google has recently made voice recognition a focal point of its mobile apps. Microsoft’s Bing-powered built-in search engine features voice search and is obviously deeply integrated into the user experience on Microsoft’s own operating system. If you have a Windows Phone 7 device already, you can download the app by searching for “Google Search” in the Marketplace. The app is available for free. What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement By default, Windows Phone 7 uses Bing as its search engine and Microsoft doesn’t currently give users the option to switch to another search provider. Just like Bing launched multiple iPhone apps, though, Google is also bringing its own mobile apps to Windows Phone 7. Just in time for the U.S. launch of Windows Phone 7, you can now download Google Search from the Marketplace. Related Posts The Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technologylast_img read more

I’ve got to get guys in there that can go and get the ball. In the second half they beat us to multiple loose balls.”Brooklyn struggled at the free-throw line, going 14 of 25 attempts.“It might be mental at this point,” Carroll said. “We can’t be a really good team missing free throws like that and I think we will, but we got to get in the gym, take it upon ourselves individually to knock down free throws.”Dallas was 17 of 21.Carlisle was frustrated during his postgame media availability and was disappointed that his team had to have a league-mandated day off on Thursday.“Just to prove that in the NBA no bad deed goes punished,” Carlisle said. “We play like this and our players get a day off. We’ve got a lot of thinking to do about how we want to finish this homestand.”The Nets won two of three games on their road trip, and had a strong showing in a loss to the Houston Rockets. For coach Kenny Atkinson it was a big step in the right direction after entering the trip with a 2-7 record on the road.“You hate to say there are big games in an NBA season because it’s so long, but we talked about getting two on this trip,” Atkinson said. “We knew it was going to be a tough trip.

Vine: Kansas State Star Receiver Tyler Lockett Made A Defender Look Silly During Senior Bowl Practice

first_imgGeneral view of Wagner Field.30 Oct 1999: A general view of the cloudly sky and the packed stadium taken during the game between the Kansas State Wildcats and the Baylor Bears at Wagner Field in Manhattan, Kansas. The Wildcats defeated the Bears 48-7. Mandatory Credit: Elsa Hasch /AllsportThis year’s NFL Draft features a number of standout wide receivers, including Kansas State star Tyler Lockett. The Wildcat star caught 106 passes for 1,515 yards and 11 touchdowns this season, and is showing off some of the skills that led to that remarkable season during Senior Bowl practices this week. Northwestern State cornerback Imoan Claiborne got the worst of it during today’s practice. CBS Sports projects Lockett as a second or third rounder. He can certainly help himself with a big week in Mobile in front of the many scouts at this week’s Senior Bowl.[@JoeGoodberry]last_img read more
