US Open 2015: How Novak Djokovic outfought Roger Federer in New York classic

first_imgNovak Djokovic beat Roger Federer 6-4 5-7 6-4 6-4 to win his second US Open title after a compelling battle in New York.The world number one had to contend not only with Federer but also with a highly partisan Arthur Ashe Stadium crowd, who roared on the Swiss throughout a raucous final.He held off a stirring Federer comeback in the fourth set as the second seed came agonisingly close to levelling from two breaks down – but ultimately his failure to convert break points cost him dearly.”It’s been an incredible season. Next to 2011 probably the best season of my life,” said Djokovic, who won the same three grand slam titles in 2011.”But I’m enjoying this year more than any previous one because I’m a husband and I’m a father and that makes it even more sweeter. “I love this sport!”After splitting the first two sets, Djokovic made his move late in the third set, withstanding heavy pressure on his serve and eventually breaking Federer to move within striking distance of his 10th Grand Slam title. Federer faded in the fourth, losing his serve twice more – having been broken just twice in the entire tournament previously.The Swiss clawed one break back but Djokovic held his nerve to send Federer and the Flushing Meadows crowd away disappointed. The 34-year-old has now lost three finals since claiming his 18th and last Grand Slam title in 2012.The 28-year-old Serb had known more frustration than success on the Flushing Meadows hardcourts having previously reached the final five times and lifting the trophy just once in 2011.Sunday’s final changed that record into a much better-looking two out of six. Given the look of the current tennis landscape, and what seems to be a gulf in class between Djokovic and anyone else on the tour in Grand Slam tennis this year, it seems hard to believe that he won’t win at least one more title at Flushing Meadows.– Follow Joy Sports on Twitter: @Joy997FM.

Ohio Ag Weather and Forecast, January 18, 2019

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Not much going on today. But we this is the last forecast before our winter storm arrives tomorrow. We are leaving our forecast nearly unchanged this morning and are locked and loaded, ready to go. We expect 4-10 inches over about 80% of the state. However, where we expect the heaviest snow, there can be some totals closer to a foot. Our low continues to take a southern track, across parts of TN, before turning north, and this favor the heaviest snow falling in SE Ohio, as we mentioned yesterday. We also see the upper end of the range back into central and west central Ohio too.  The southern third of the state can see significant rain before action ends as snow too, with some potential for at least .75″ or more near the river in south central Ohio.  The set up favors Ohio ending up with the biggest snows of the storm track, at least before it gets to the east coast.  There will be some wind with this event, but the best winds develop as the cold air starts to really arrive, coming NNE at 10-20 mph. That will be enough to trigger some blowing and drifting. Winter storm watches have been issued for some parts of the state, and others may be forthcoming. So, while this is nothing like the 20 inch forecasts that were being hurled around earlier this week, it is a significant event, and will be tough to get away from. The map at right shows potential snow for tomorrow’s event through Sunday morning.Behind this system, we see a very strong polar outbreak. Cold air blasts into the state on Sunday. We can see some leftover flurries pushing east as a result of the dramatically colder air mass. Temperatures will fall to anywhere from -10 to -18 over the NW quadrant of the state overnight Sunday night and Monday morning, while the rest of the state looks to move solidly into the single digits. We can see another night of sub zero temps 224 hours later, and a few locations in NW Ohio may struggle to top the zero mark for a high on Monday. Strong north winds will bring lake effect snows to northern parts of Ohio Sunday and especially Monday, particularly in NE Ohio, with lake enhanced cloud cover extending farther south and east.A major disturbance returns at midweek next week. However, we expect strong south wind flow ahead of it, moderating temps quickly next Tuesday. Overnight Tuesday into Wednesday rain and snow spread over the state, and then late Wednesday as cold air returns, snow take over more of the region. There will be plenty of liquid with this system. From US 30 southward, we can see liquid up to 1”, and north of US 30, snows of 2-6 inches are possible. We also continue to have some concern about ice…but need to get closer to the event and see what kind of atmospheric profile we have to deal with before getting to worried about ice. This system is looking to leave quicker, and we should be dry for next Thursday.The rest of the 10 day window actually looks better, with no new significant precipitation expected to finish the week and next weekend. Temps are trying to stay closer to normal, which would take concern about clipper systems away for now. The extended period still looks cold, and we won’t rule out a stronger system around the 30th and 31st, but we will take a closer look at that next week.last_img read more

15 Fluid Apps You Can Build for Your Business

first_imgIT + Project Management: A Love Affair Related Posts Cognitive Automation is the Immediate Future of… Fluid is a simple application for creating site-specific browsers (SSBs) on your OSX desktop. Fluid definitely wasn’t the first SSB project and was inspired primarily by the Mozilla Prism project. The advantage with an SSB is that you can take almost any Web application you use heavily and get it out of your browser, reducing tab usage, avoiding crashes, and generally improving workflow. Fluid is really for anyone, but the low barrier to entry and the effect it has on productivity make it an attractive tool for getting things done. Though it’s been around for a while, few businesses have really taken advantage of its full potential. Fluid supports advanced features such as user scripting, but you don’t need to be a programmer to get some decent apps up and running quickly. All you need to do is give Fluid a URL, a name for your app, a location on your machine, and an icon. That’s it. EmailEspecially for Gmail and Yahoo Mail users, a Fluid app can be the answer to your woes. Programs like Mail and Mozilla Thunderbird are great, but they fail to replicate the true experience that Web-based email programs deliver. It’s super-easy to build and extend an email app in Fluid, and far superior to any of the AIR apps for Gmail or Yahoo. If you don’t have the time to really trick it out, there’s the shareware software Mailplane, which is also built on Fluid but has a few more bells and whistles. Correction: turns out Mailplane isn’t built on Fluid, though it is an SSB.WikiGiving you and your coworkers desktop access to whatever wiki you happen to be using is a definite win. You get the easy access (minus mobile) of something like Evernote, plus the infectious power of wiki linking and collaborative creation. One of the real beauties of using a Fluid app for your wiki experience is that it works with almost any provider, from installations of free software MediaWiki to closed-source hosts like PBworks, Wetpaint, and Wikispaces. DocsGoogle Docs and Zoho Writer are perfectly suited to becoming Fluid apps. Bringing either of them (or whatever online word processor you prefer) to the desktop makes it much more competitive with the experience of Microsoft Office or Open Office. Tasks & To-do ListsA Fluid app works great for any of the software-as-a-service task tracking and to-do list tools, such as Remember The Milk or Ta-da List from 37Signals. File SharingIf you’re a fan of file sharing and syncing software like Dropbox, Box, or Mediafire, then a Fluid app is right up your alley, giving you a much faster way to get to your files. The only top-notch file sharing service that Fluid might not be compatible with is drop.io, since each new drop has its unique URL, though can return to them. RSS ReaderThere are a lot of really great free RSS readers for Mac available. But if you’re an addict of Web-based readers like Google Reader, then Fluid is the perfect way to stick with it but still get desktop access. The optional Cover Flow thumbnail viewer in Fluid can really spice up the feed-reading experience as well. CalendarThis is especially good if you’re seeking to develop a shared calendar for your company. The various solutions for creating a shared calendar with desktop software like iCal are embarrassingly difficult compared to the five minutes it’ll take you to create a Fluid app to access your Google Calendar.Customer ServiceCustomer service mavens, rejoice. Instead of hunting through your many tabs to respond quickly and comprehensively to customers, you can just build a simple Fluid app for Get Satisfaction, Zendesk, or even an OTRS system. BloggingYes, there are definitely some impressive desktop blogging apps, but they’re almost all geared to power bloggers and rip out the familiar interface of WordPress, TypePad, or Tumblr. Taking five minutes to make a Fluid app is a good way to get a fast, free, functioning desktop blogging experience. I should know, since I published this post from a Fluid application. Business IntelligenceDepending on how you’re tracking business intelligence information now, it might be a good idea to create a Fluid app. To create a custom business intelligence dashboard with Fluid might take a little more hacking, but it’s well worth it to get a quick hands-on resource. Project ManagementThere are so many Web-based project management apps out there, it’s impossible to really catalog them all (at least via blog). But what most of them don’t have is a robust desktop version. We use Basecamp here at ReadWriteWeb, and Fluid works great for that or whatever service you might be using. Enterprise MicrobloggingTwitter for the enterprise is a rapidly-evolving category of software. Several of the top options — such as Socialtext Signals, Yammer, and Socialcast — already have good desktop apps. But if you’re seeking one not based on Adobe AIR or something slightly more customizable (without having to work with an API), then Fluid is a good approach to take. Bug TrackingFluid jives with most of the bug and issue tracking software out there, including JIRA, Trac, Bugzilla, and Redmine. Features like Growl notifications and the optional menu bar icon might be especially nice additions to a bug tracker app. Code Repository & ReviewFluid works just fine for accessing heavily used coder resources such as Github. It’s also great for code review and code repository tools like Crucible and FishEye from Atlassian. Social NetworksOf course, Fluid also works really well for anyone doing marketing and customer service work through social networks such as Facebook. Despite the multitude of Twitter apps, it might also be appropriate if you’re using one of the Web-based solutions like CoTweet’s business-focused platform. Further ResourcesThere you have it! As you can probably tell, Fluid works best for the kind of rich Internet applications that you access repeatedly in your workflow, ones that sit in your browser all day and that you come back to again and again. If you’re looking for more ideas or resources, be sure to take a peek at the unofficial Fluid wiki, the site itself, or the Flickr group for free Fluid icons. 3 Areas of Your Business that Need Tech Nowcenter_img Massive Non-Desk Workforce is an Opportunity fo… Tags:#enterprise#Products#Trends steven wallinglast_img read more

NAB 2017: The Future of VR Technology Is Looking Bright

first_imgVirtual Reality was big at NAB 2017. Let’s check out some of the latest news and biggest announcements in VR.Cover image via Yi Technology.The lights of NAB 2017 may have dimmed, but the future of virtual reality is looking bright as ever. In addition to developments from some familiar brands like Facebook and Google, VR technologies advancements extended into live action capture and playback, NLE editing plug-ins, and groundbreaking VR audio recording.Let’s review some of the big announcements, updates, and breakthroughs that you may have missed at NAB 2017.Lucid’s 4K 3D Live Production CameraOur goal is to transform the way we create content live and share experiences with people around the world. More importantly, because it is very compact, it is mountable so in a sports game, for example, you can even place it above the basket or behind the goal or fly it on a drone to get amazing footage that people have never experienced before. —Han Jin, CEO, Lucid VRLucid VR’s new LucidCam is the “first and only 4K 3D VR live production camera” that is “versatile enough to mount on a tripod or fit into your pocket.” The camera enables live-streaming to your phone or VR headset within seconds. Coupled with its small size, this creates a world of possibilities in terms of mounting and attaching the cam to drones.You can read more about the camera in this write-up here or check out the video below. As VR content continues to grow, one concern for VR and 360 content creators is recording 360-degree audio that can fully immerse viewers in an environment. While the technology already exists, Sennheiser, one of the most trusted names in video-minded audio production, has created a new standard with their Ambeo design 360-audio recorder.You can read more about the recorder on their website here.HypeVR’s VR Capture and Playback TechnologyAccording to their website, HypeVR is a “computer vision technology company  focused on developing ultra-high resolution live action VR capture and playback with six degrees of freedom.” What that basically means is that HypeVR is looking to occupy (and own) the burgeoning “live action VR” market before it potentially takes off. This includes full capture, rendering, compression, and streaming — along with creative production and post-production services.You can see their technology in action in this video by NoFilmSchool. Mettle and Facebook Bring New Plug-ins to Adobe SoftwareFacebook and Mettle teamed up to unveil new plug-ins for editing 360/VR footage in Premiere Pro and After Effects. The plug-ins are tailored for Facebook 360/VR and you can easily apply them to your footage for optimized results. This will enable better movement and advanced controls across the board.You can read more about the announcement on RocketStock here.Yi Technology and Google Announce $17,000 3D VR CameraNot to be outdone by their billion-dollar tech rivals, Google counteracts Facebook by teaming up with Yi Technology to create a highly ambitious (and expensive) 4k 3D-360 degree Yi Halo. The Yi Halo features sixteen spherically aligned 4k action cameras (plus a few extra facing upwards). Unfortunately, the Yi Halo will cost upwards 0f $17,000, so we’ll see how well it does before we refinance a mortgage to get one.You can check out the Yi Halo on their website here. Sennheiser Introduces New Standard for VR Audio Recording What VR technologies are you looking forward to? Let us know in the comments.last_img read more
