England coach suffers injury

first_imgEngland manager Gareth Southgate had his right shoulder dislocated while running on Wednesday.The squad had a scheduled day off from training and Southgate suffered the injury near England’s base in Repino. This is coming after Southgate celebrated acrobatically after Harry Kane sealed a 2-1 win over Tunisia in England’s opening World Cup game on Monday.“The doc has made it clear that punching the air is not an option,” said Southgate via BBC.“I might not be celebrating any goals as athletically in future,” he added.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.Southgate, who is wearing a sling, was treated at a nearby hospital with the assistance of team doctor Rob Chakraverty.Southgate won the League Cup with both Aston Villa and Middlesbrough and captained Crystal Palace to win the First Division championship in 1993–94. He also played in the 2000 FA Cup Final for Villa and the 2006 UEFA Cup Final for Middlesbrough.Southgate made 57 appearances for the England national team between 1995 and 2004, featuring in the 1998 FIFA World Cup and both the 1996 and 2000 European Championships. His playing career ended in May 2006 at the age of 35, and after more than 500 league appearances.He served as manager of Middlesbrough from June 2006 until October 2009, then managed the England U21 team from 2013 to 2016, before becoming the England national team manager in 2016.last_img read more

Gio Simeones wants to avoid nepotism in Argentina

first_imgGio Simeone is still going to work hard in order to become an Atletico Madrid player someday, but he wants to avoid nepotism in Argentina.The sentiment that awakens Atletico Madrid in some players is simply inevitable sometimes, Argentina international Gio Simeone is the best example of this because he doesn’t care that his father doesn’t want to coach him there for now.Any professional football player who has the characteristic fighting spirit that any Atletico Madrid player historically has, would have the dream of someday playing for the Colchoneros regardless of the circumstances.The oldest of Diego Simeone’s sons heard what his father had to say about the possibility of coaching him someday in the Spanish club, but he doesn’t seem to care about the response.Giovanni Simeone has the dream of playing for Atletico Madrid in the future because he is a true fan of the institution, he doesn’t care if his father is still the manager of the squad when he reaches a level that is good enough for the club to pursue him.The trades that this striker has are very similar to what the club has always wanted in their best players, which makes the possibility even greater for him in the near future.All Gio has to do is keep working hard, and hope that he can get that call soon.”ME ENCANTARÍA VER A MI PAPÁ ACÁ””SIEMPRE ME DICE QUE NO ES EL MOMENTO”#CentralFOX | Giovanni Simeone opinó sobre la situación de su padre como posible entrenador de la Selección Argentina. pic.twitter.com/90fIWMnYzm— FOX Sports Argentina (@FOXSportsArg) October 14, 2018The eldest of Simeone’s kids granted an interview with Fox Sports, where he discussed his father again and the upcoming friendly match between Argentina and Brazil on Tuesday.“Atletico Madrid is something that has been practically taught to us, it’s inside me and my dad, but I never had the chance of being coached by him.”“My old man has never talked to me about this possibility. The fact that people keep talking about this means that I’m still growing.”“Playing for Atletico Madrid someday would be truly amazing for me, an incredible achievement. As an Argentina player, I would love to see my dad as the manager here, but he keeps saying that it’s not the right time yet.”Gerard Pique, Neymar, BarcelonaLa Liga Betting: Match-day 4 Stuart Heath – September 14, 2019 Despite it being very early into La Liga season, both Barcelona and Real Madrid have had unprecedented starts to their campaigns. With this in…“Every single person from Argentina would like having him here because he is a great manager, one of the best in the world,” said Gio during the interview.Gran partido de todo el equipo! #VamosArgentina 🇦🇷👊🏼⚽️ pic.twitter.com/gAmMBkBE4Z— Giovanni Simeone (@simeonegiovanni) October 11, 2018Giovanni is getting ready to represent his country on his very first Classic match between Argentina and Brazil, he didn’t play much against Saudi Arabia last week but he could get more minutes for this match and he hopes he can live up to the family name.Getting a great participation in matches like this one, are what can assure him a permanent spot in the squad, something that he aims for before his father gets the job as the manager.Gio Simeone is very aware of nepotism, which is something that both he and his father are always trying to avoid.“If I keep getting called-up and I keep having minutes with this group, the possibility of us crossing paths here becomes greater. Things would be obviously different if I was never called-up and he calls me right after he gets the job,” he added.“What I aim for is to win a spot here before he gets the position, so I’m fighting against the clock. I’ve been preparing for this possibility this year, but I honestly didn’t expect a call-up this soon.”“My grandfather gave me a very useful advice. He told me that one minute in the national team is the equivalent of sixty minutes in a club. This means that I will give my very best in every minute I get a chance to play for Argentina.”“I’ve been in Europe for only two years, so if I already had this chance, is because I can still give a lot more than even I expected,” he concluded.Preparando el partido de mañana 💪🏼⚽️🇦🇷 #VamosArgentina pic.twitter.com/t8qKVDtbUC— Giovanni Simeone (@simeonegiovanni) October 10, 2018How well do you think Giovanni Simeone would do with his father as the manager?

Ancelotti on PSG and Group C standings

first_imgCarlo Ancelotti shared his thoughts about the 1-1 draw with Paris Saint-Germain and the group standings after going top of the table.Napoli secured a draw thanks to Lorenzo Insigne who converted from the spot to cancel Juan Bernat’s first-half goal.“I tried to modify the approach, which was a little too prudent in the first half and we allowed them to control the tempo too much. We put more pressure on their midfielders and things went better,” he told Football Italia.“We played at a very high level for 20 minutes, then paid for the effort later on, as we tried to control at the end rather than attack.”Sacchi explains Sarri, Conte, and Ancelotti Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Arrigo Sacchi talked about how Sarri has a tougher time at Juventus than Conte at Inter; while Ancelotti’s “blood is boiling” at Napoli.Arrigo Sacchi…Napoli were held 2-2 at Parc des Princes too, but Liverpool lost 2-0 at Red Star Belgrade today.That means the Italians are ahead of Liverpool on their head-to-head record, with six points each, Paris Saint-Germain are on five and Red Star four.“The two draws with Paris Saint-Germain are positive, because we have a slight advantage if we do finish level with them. To be honest, we didn’t expect Liverpool to lose in Belgrade today, so now Red Star are getting involved too and the group cannot be more balanced.“It was really unexpected, especially for the result that saw them lose 6-1 in Paris. It’ll be tight to the end.”last_img read more

Man injured in takeoverstyle robbery at Spring Valley Marijuana Dispensary

first_img Posted: April 17, 2018 Updated: 11:42 AM KUSI Newsroom, KUSI Newsroom SPRING VALLEY (KUSI) – A search was underway today for two suspects who fired shots and clubbed a man in the head during a robbery at a Spring Valley marijuana dispensary.The takeover-style heist was occurred about 11:40 p.m. Monday at a business park at 9966 Dolores St. The gunmen entered the Spring Valley Collective and ordered customers and employees to the ground, then robbed the dispensary and fled before deputies arrived, San Diego County sheriff’s Sgt. Joe Barry said. He said 911 callers said shots were fired at some point.Nobody was injured by the gunfire, but when deputies arrived, they found a man with blunt force trauma injuries, Barry said. The sergeant did not say specifically how the man sustained the injuries, but 10News reported that at least one of the suspects struck him in the head with the blunt end of a firearm.The injured victim, whose name was not released, was taken to an undisclosed hospital for evaluation, Barry said. It was unclear whether the crime was related to armed heists of a similar nature in the Spring Valley area. Prior to Monday, the most recent similar hold-up reported in the area happened last Aug. 10 at the Bancroft Mega Wellness dispensary in the 3600 block of Bancroft Drive, less than two miles from the Spring Valley Collective.Video Playerhttp://www.kusi.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/man-injured.mp4Media error: Format(s) not supported or source(s) not foundmejs.download-file: http://www.kusi.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/man-injured.mp4?_=100:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.At that time, sheriff’s Sgt. Kotaro Murashige of the Rancho San Diego substation described a similar robbery to the one on Monday, in which two armed men forced their way into the illegal dispensary, disarmed a security guard, forced everyone to the ground and made off with marijuana products.Murashige said in August that it was a familiar pattern from several previous robberies in the Spring Valley area.“In each case, armed guards were not a deterrent, the suspects were all armed (and) dispensary staff members failed to call for help even after people were physically assaulted,” the sergeant said. “In some cases the staff members refused to allow law enforcement to enter, causing a stand-off situation that stretched the department’s resources in helping victims.”The Dolores Street dispensary robbed Monday was familiar to Spring Valley deputies. On Feb. 8, sheriff’s detectives and members of the San Diego Crime Suppression Team raided the illegal business and confiscated marijuana, edibles, cash and a loaded BB pistol, according to Sgt. Matt Cook.Despite the use of marijuana becoming legal statewide at the beginning of this year, businesses that sell marijuana are still banned from operating throughout much of the county, including all unincorporated areas of the county. Legitimate marijuana businesses are allowed to operate in the city of San Diego and some other cities, but must be licensed.Video Playerhttp://www.kusi.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/dispensary-spring-valley-4.17.mp4Media error: Format(s) not supported or source(s) not foundmejs.download-file: http://www.kusi.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/dispensary-spring-valley-4.17.mp4?_=200:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.center_img Man injured in takeover-style robbery at Spring Valley Marijuana Dispensary April 17, 2018 Categories: Local San Diego News FacebookTwitterlast_img read more

SoHi Prep Notifies Parents Of School Violence Joke Made By Student

Murkowski Questions FEMA Leadership On Earthquake Recovery Efforts

first_imgIn response, Gaynor acknowledged the issues outlined by Murkowski and agreed that the process at times can be complex. Murkowski: “You indicate in your testimony, which I appreciate, that you’re seeking to reduce the complexity of FEMA to promote simpler less complex processes to streamline it. And that’s good, but how do we let folks know that disaster victims can have confidence in this program that is being administered and is it being administered as we intended it to?” Murkowski touched on the potential flaws within FEMA’s Individual Assistance Program process and questioned Gaynor on how to ensure disaster victims can be confident in FEMA’s disaster recovery efforts. Gaynor stated that he was committed to making adjustments to the program to try to deliver maximum disaster relief and assistance to Alaskans in need. Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享During a Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Homeland Security a review was conducted of FEMA’s FY2020 Budget Request. During the hearing, U.S. Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) raised Alaska specific concerns to Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Acting Administrator Peter Gaynor. Murkowski: “Part of the problem is that it seems this individual assistance program has kind of a black box reputation. Nobody really knows what is eligible for a home repair award. No one knows if inspectors are consistent. The specific criteria that inspectors use isn’t readily available. Appeal decisions aren’t published.” Senator Murkowski highlighted the difficulties that Alaskans are facing as they seek assistance from FEMA following the 7.1 magnitude earthquake that occurred in Alaska on November 30, 2018.last_img read more

With Growth Comes Many Competitors

first_imgDigital magazine vendors will tell you that their growth has been phenomenal—anywhere from 25 to 50 percent a year for the last two to three years. That’s one good reason why the industry has gone from a handful of pioneers four or five years ago to an explosion of low-cost solutions.“There have to be 20 of what I call the ‘flash guys,’” says Cimarron Buser, VP, marketing and product planning for Texterity. “They get a flash program and write a piece of code that will work for a magazine, but the publishing industry needs a lot more than ‘whiz-bang’ technology.”It probably does look easy to produce a digital magazine—just take a PDF and give it a page flip—but a lot more goes on in the background, according to Nxtbook Media marketing director Marcus Grimm. The technology offered by the large vendors integrates with search engines, provides tracking data for the magazine, and is more feature-rich than the products that a lot of the smaller companies offer. Not so fast, say some of those that offer the simpler solution. While Olive Software, which has been in the business for seven years, is a full-service vendor with major publisher clients, vice president of marketing Nicole Miller points out that small publishers with low-circulation magazines or newsletters need a low-cost, easy way of producing something other than a PDF. “We’ve taken our platform and made it easy for a client to upload a PDF and receive a URL within minutes that links to an online digital document. It’s primarily just a flipper,” she says, “but they can then e-mail the link to their subscribers or post it on their Web site.” Proliferating Digital ProvidersIn the last few years, the number of digital-magazine suppliers has exploded.

The demise of Apples 12inch MacBook

first_img 5 Aug 31 • iPhone XR vs. iPhone 8 Plus: Which iPhone should you buy? Sarah Tew/CNET The end came quietly, slipped in with a series of back-to-school announcements about better screens and lower prices for the MacBook Air, and, uh, more Touch Bars for the MacBook Pro. No formal announcement was made in the jargon-filled press release letting us know that the entry-level Pro now features “Touch Bar and Touch ID, a True Tone Retina display and the Apple T2 Security Chip,” but a quick check online confirmed that the 12-inch MacBook had been removed from Apple’s website. And the 12-inch MacBook wasn’t alone in going to the big upstate farm where old computers allegedly roam, with free Wi-Fi and plenty of power outlets. The “classic” MacBook Air and the Touch-Bar-less MacBook Pro also exited active duty. But those are easier to let go of. The former was so outdated as to be hard to recommend, the latter is getting the higher-end features of its more-expensive cousin while keeping the same price. I’ll come right out and say it. The 12-inch MacBook was an unfairly maligned, misunderstood product. In fact, at several points since its 2015 debut, it’s been my favorite laptop. Insanely portable, very light, great 12-inch display, and a sharp look that turned coffee shop heads back when smaller-screen laptops were mostly low-end junk. In 2016, I proudly declared it “my favorite laptop” and “my top go-to machine.” I even wrote most of a 75,000-word book on its super-shallow keyboard. But I also acknowledged why a lot of people just didn’t “get” the 12-inch MacBook. “The knocks against this system — an odd-man-out, not part of either the Air or Pro MacBook lines — were numerous. Its screen was too small; the keyboard too shallow; not enough ports; no MagSafe power connection; underpowered, even compared to the base MacBook Air; and battery life that didn’t measure up to the MacBook standard.”I also said, “The 12-inch MacBook won’t do everything and isn’t for everyone. But its strictly enforced minimalism will make this laptop the model that industrial designers will strive to copy for the next several years.” And that has certainly come to pass. USB-C as the go-to standard? Check. Butterfly keyboard on every MacBook? Check (although who knows for how much longer). Higher-res, Retina-style screens as table stakes for premium laptops? Check.I recall people tearing their hair out over the single USB-C port in the first 12-inch MacBook. No USB-A, no HDMI — how could anyone use a laptop like that? Now, many super-premium 13-inch laptops have at best a couple of USB-C ports and little else. Apple Macbook 12-inch 2017Just one port.  Sarah Tew/CNET It reminds me of when Apple led the way dropping things like Ethernet jacks and optical drives from computers. The company was just a little ahead of the curve about what features were on their way out. The 12-inch MacBook didn’t physically connect to anything because many modern laptops don’t need to physically connect to anything. Between Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and cloud-connected services, I can’t recall the last time I had to plug something into a travel laptop. I was excited to get a USB memory key with dual USB-A and USB-C ports several months ago. Still haven’t taken it out of the package. If it was so great, then what killed the 12-inch MacBook? The culprit was the very system the it was originally supposed to replace. The 13-inch MacBook Air, for many years the single most universally useful laptop you could buy (and a staple for students and office workers alike), had fallen into the phantom zone where Apple sticks products that stagnate with minimal, if any, updates for years on end. But last year, the Air finally got the top-to-bottom makeover it needed and became a sales leader, leaving few reasons beyond slightly better portability to choose the 12-inch model instead. Call it natural selection or survival of the fittest, but it’s the law of the gadget jungle. And before I get too morose over the death of the 12-inch MacBook, I should remember that I’m writing this on — you guessed it — an excellent new 13-inch MacBook Air.

UN rights chief slams Bangladesh drug war

first_imgUN High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra`ad Al HusseinThe UN rights chief on Wednesday condemned the recent killing of more than 100 alleged drug dealers in Bangladesh, insisting that extra-judicial killings cannot be justified in the fight against narcotics.Some 130 people have reportedly been shot dead by Bangladeshi security forces since 15 May and another 15,000 arrested in the Philippines-style crackdown aimed to halt the spread of methamphetamine and other illegal drugs.”I am gravely concerned that such a large number of people have been killed,” UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein said in a statement.He also voiced concern about government reaction, which “has been to assure the public that none of these individuals were ‘innocent’.”Such statements are dangerous and indicative of a total disregard for the rule of law,” he said.”People do not lose their human rights because they use or sell drugs.”Bangladesh has been struggling to contain a surging drug trade.Police have vowed to stamp out “yaba”, a very popular street pill made of caffeine and methamphetamine.Authorities last year seized a record 40 million yaba tablets, but said an estimated 250-300 million others entered the market, due in part to large quantities coming across the border from major producer Myanmar.Nine million yaba tablets were seized in less than three months earlier this year, including nearly two million in a single haul.The rights commissioner stressed that “the presumption of innocence and the right to due process must be at the forefront of any efforts to tackle crime.””Given the large number of people arrested, there is a high likelihood that many people may have been arbitrarily detained, without due regard for their rights.”Urging Bangladesh to investigate reports of extra-judicial killings and hold the perpetrators to account, he also voiced concern that already vulnerable slum communities were particular targets and that the crackdown appeared to be hampering drug users from accessing health services.The alleged dealers killed in Bangladesh mainly died in what authorities described as shootouts, but parallels have been drawn to the Philippines where police have been accused of executing suspects.”There is no doubt that the trafficking and sale of illegal narcotics leads to tremendous suffering,” the rights chief added.”But extra-judicial killings, arbitrary arrests and the stigmatisation of people who use drugs cannot be the answer.”last_img

2 killed in protests over a girls rape and murder in Pakistan

first_imgPeople chant slogans and hold signs to condemn the rape and killing of 7-year-old girl Zainab Ansari in Kasur, during a protest in Peshawar, Pakistan. Photo: ReutersTwo civilians were killed when officers fired live rounds to disburse crowds that attacked a police station in Pakistan on Wednesday in a protest over the rape and murder of a 7-year-old girl.Police recovered the body of Zainab Ansari on Tuesday from a garbage dumpster in the town of Kasur in eastern Pakistan, four days after she was reported missing.It was the twelfth incident of a girl being adducted, raped, and killed in the past year in Kasur district, police say. Residents have been furious at the authorities for what they see as a failure to investigate such cases.The spokesman for Pakistan’s Punjab province, Malik Muhammad Ahmad Khan, told Reuters that protesters turned violent and attacked a local police office.”They started throwing stones at the office and some of armed protesters shot bullets at police. In order to stop them, police resorted to aerial firing,” Khan said, adding that two people were killed and one wounded as a result.Locals said police responded with undue force.”A peaceful protest was taking place, some students threw stones and police responded by firing at the crowd,” Saleem ur Rehman, a resident who was at the protest, told Reuters. “The law and order situation here is really bad and there have been many such incidents. That is what the protest was about.”Ansari’s parents, who were not in the country when their daughter was kidnapped, returned on Wednesday.”I want justice! I want justice!” Zainab’s mother cried, surrounded by reporters at the international airport in the capital Islamabad.Ansari’s case has attracted the attention of the country’s civilian and military leadership, with Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif calling for immediate action.Police in Kasur deny they have been lax in investigating child abductions in the town. Regional police officer Zulfiqar Hameed told Reuters that four kidnappers had been arrested and another killed during an arrest attempt.”Investigations reveal that in each case a paedophile kidnaps little girls, rapes them and kills them,” he said.The case of Ansari would soon be solved, he said: “We have got CCTV footage that shows a young man taking her along. We will catch him very soon,” he said, adding that 95 DNA samples had been taken from suspects.A number of police officials have been transferred out of the region for failing to investigate complaints of missing children since 2015, when authorities uncovered what they called a paedophile ring linked to a prominent local family. At least two people have been convicted in the case, in which authorities say hundreds of children in the district were abused.last_img read more

Surge in rapes in Khulna as 132 fall victim in 2 years

first_imgProthom Alo illustrationAs rape has become a common crime in the country, 132 women and children have fallen victim to rapists in Khulna district over the last two years, reports news agency UNB.Police say 75 of the incidents were reported in the city alone and the rest from different upazilas between May 2017 and April this year.The victims include school children.According to the district’s Law-and-order Committee report, charges have been pressed in court in most of the cases.It also highlighted another disturbing development. As many as 50 lawsuits have been filed under the Women and Children Repression Prevention Act in the district in the last three months alone.The latest victim was a 10th grader. She was gang-raped by three stalkers on 29 January. Police have arrested three suspects.Khulna Mahila Parishad secretary Rasu Akhter blamed the rapes on moral degradation, pointing out to such incidents being reported from madrasas and temples.However, Anisur Rahman, additional superintendent of Khulna Metropolitan Police, claimed that the rate of rape incidents is declining in the district.Public prosecutor Jesmin Parveen of Women and Children Repression Prevention Tribunal-2 said there are three courts in the district to deal with torture and rape-related incidents.Currently, the tribunals are handling about 3,000 cases. About eight to 10 cases get verdict on a regular basis.The pace of rape case settlement is good, she said.last_img read more

Study analyzes role of mobile software in the future Internet

first_img Explore further One method for advancing network services in the future Internet consists of combining mobile agents with an evolutionary framework. In these methods, the mobile agents must decide for themselves the best course of action to take in order to handle users’ requests most effectively, with the results of the decision impacting their survival. Currently, these methods are far from being practically implemented since they lack a basic theory of the migration behaviors of mobile agents on a large scale. In a new study, Yongsheng Ding and Lei Gao from Donghua University in Shanghai, China, have performed a macrodynamics analysis of mobile agents’ migration behaviors, which could provide a fundamental basis for the development of a more ubiquitous future Internet. Their study will appear in a future issue of IEEE Transactions on Systems, Man, and Cybernetics – Part A: Systems and Humans.“We think the work is significant in being the first to conduct the macroanalysis of large-scale mobile agent migrations,” Gao told PhysOrg.com. “The study not only favors the design of composite services in a type of self-organizing network architecture, but also benefits the future deployment of an Internet-scale mobile agent system that holds myriads, hosts, and migratory movements of mobile agents.”Previous studies have predicted that the future Internet will have vast numbers of these mobile agents that can effectively handle users’ requests. As Gao explains, mobile agents could have significant advantages compared with stationary agents, especially for mobile devices.“Due to the resource limitation of mobile devices, agents are sent to some nodes/devices with rich resources for doing some tasks that have high requirements for resources, and then they bring the results back,” Gao explained. “Mobile agents can automatically suspend their executions on one host and migrate to another to resume their computations without tedious and slow network communication.”As the researchers explain in their study, mobile agents can be considered in terms of an evolutionary framework: When a mobile agent performs a service, it gains a reward. The more rewards a mobile agent has, the longer it survives, while agents that run out of rewards die. So mobile agents evolve and become more effective at handling users’ requests. They have several abilities to maximize their usefulness, such as adapting to changing environments, manipulating objects, and learning from past experiences. They also have the ability to replicate themselves individually or reproduce “children agents” with other mobile agents.

(PhysOrg.com) — Although it’s difficult to predict what the future Internet will look like, it’s probably safe to say that certain trends we’ve seen during the past decade will continue. This means that the Internet will become further integrated into our daily lives, becoming more ubiquitous, available, autonomous, and mobile. The engineers who are guiding the Internet in this direction are doing so by developing mobile agents, which are pieces of software that can autonomously migrate from one computer to another and interact with each other. In the researchers’ model, mobile agents that perform the same or similar services (e.g., performing a credit card transaction or providing GPS data) would form a community, or “niche.” In these niches, mobile agents can learn from their surrounding environment, improve their performance, and gain more rewards. Depending on user demand, these niches can grow or shrink. The researchers’ model shows that the number of mobile agents in all niches eventually stabilizes, so that the average growth rate of the total mobile agent population reaches zero. By understanding the macroproperties that emerge from the behaviors of a large number of autonomous mobile agents, the researchers hope that they can design improved network services with more advanced features. This kind of modeling is still in its infancy, and the researchers hope to continue improving these models, and eventually apply them in the future Internet.“We believe the future Internet will be hundreds of times faster than the current one,” Gao said. “We envision the future Internet as a global integrated platform for communication, education, entertainment, business, and other human activities. Network services are required to be highly available, ubiquitous, highly secure, self-managing, and adaptable to dynamic network environments and user requirements. The characteristics of the future Internet we envision resemble the self-organizing and the self-healing properties of natural ecosystems that have evolved over billions of years. The harmonious properties of natural ecosystems have shown us a promising way to build the future integrated platform.”last_img read more
