BRIDGETOWN, Barbados, (CMC):An inept West Indies suffered their heaviest one-day international defeat to England, when they crashed to a 186-run loss in a lopsided series finale here yesterday.Reserving their worst performance of the three-match series for the historic Kensington Oval, the hosts batted and bowled with equal indifference, as England pulled off their first-ever clean sweep of an ODI series in the Caribbean.Sent in, England equaled their highest-ever total against the West Indies and the highest ever at the venue with 328 all out off their 50 overs, with fit-again opener Alex Hales gathering 110 and Joe Root, 101.The pair dominated the West Indies bowling, adding 192 for the second wicket to pull their side around from the early loss of Jason Roy for 17 in the sixth over with 27 runs on the board.Twenty-year-old fast bowler Alzarri Joseph, playing his first game of the series in place of the injured Shannon Gabriel, claimed four for 76, while captain and fellow seamer Jason Holder picked up three for 41.SUCCESSFUL CHASEHaving never successfully chased a total in excess of 300 to win an ODI, West Indies buckled under the weight of history and collapsed for 142 all out off 39.2 overs – narrowly avoiding their lowest-ever venue total of 141, 23 years ago.Only left-hander Jonathan Carter with 46 showed any enterprise, but he was the sole batsman to pass 20 and one of just three to reach double figures.West Indies were tormented by seamers Chris Woakes (3-16) and Liam Plunkett (3-27) who finished with three wickets apiece while Steven Finn claimed two for 35.Once the hosts collapsed to 45 for six in the 17th over, the mission became one of avoiding embarrassment, and they needed Joseph’s entertaining unbeaten 22 off 13 balls at number 11, to avert total disaster.SCOREBOARDlast_img read more

Fed workers overwhelmingly feel naked…digitally

first_imgWhy IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces In conjunction with 451 Research, Thales has released its second annual data security research brief.  The 2017 Thales Data Threat Report, Federal Edition indicates that 96% of federal workers believe they are “very” or “extremely” vulnerable to data breaches. This number is larger than all other sectors polled by the report.Despite feeling extremely vulnerable , U.S. federal members are putting fewer dollars on security than other sectors, even though their expenditures have risen by three percent since last year. Small staff, strict budgets and lack of cyber expertise are given as the main reasons for data insecurity by 53% of federal respondents. See Also: Hajime malware is turning 300,000 Iot devices into zombiesFederal workers feel insecure about the need to utilize advanced technology such as the cloud, Big Data, and loT, with 71 percent of them believing these technologies are being adopted without properly established security measures in place.“This ‘perfect storm’ of very old systems, tight budgets and being a prime cyber-crime target has created a stressful environment,” says Garrett Bekker, the principal analyst for Information Security at 451 Research.Becker also explains, “A major challenge in securing the far-flung systems in the U.S. federal government is the plethora of aging legacy systems still in place, with one example being a 53-year-old Strategic Automated Command and Control System at the Department of Defense that coordinates U.S. nuclear forces and uses 8-inch floppy disks.” The report states that encryption is the top data security control, with 60 percent of federal employees claiming they’re using this method to guarantee data privacy. The Thales report provides several recommendations to federal agencies that are needing to update to advanced technologies including, the deployment of security toolsets that offer services-based deployments, platforms, and automation and discovering and classifying the location of sensitive data within the cloud, SaaS, big data, IoT and container environments.Focus needed on safety practicesWayne Lewandowski, Vice President of U.S. Federal at Thales e-Security, compares data security to that of banks, in a recent interview with GovConWire. Considering the amount of cyber-criminals and their constant targeting, it’s a safe bet that there will be breaches.  However, the most important thing is to maintain practices that keep data and information safe. Only those individuals who really need access to the most sensitive data should have access, versus being available for all users.  “The Thales Data Threat Report for US Public Sector demonstrates once again that federal agencies continue to be the largest target of any sector for criminal exploits. We are excited to partner with our government constituents to bring the recognized need for encryption, key management and policy controls to defend critical data,” Lewandowski explains to GovConWire.

Neymar braced for PSG debut and French culture shock

first_imgNeymar #11 of Barcelona heads for the net in the first half against Juventus during the International Champions Cup 2017 on July 22, 2017 at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey. Elsa/Getty Images/AFPHe has dazzled Rio’s imposing Maracana and Barcelona’s storied Camp Nou, but it’s Guingamp’s humble 17,000-capacity Stade du Rouduorou, tucked away in sleepy Brittany, which on Sunday greets Neymar, the world’s most expensive footballer.With the mundanity of transfer paperwork finally resolved, the 25-year-old Brazilian magician will line up for Paris Saint-Germain for the first time since his mind-boggling 222 million euro ($261 million) move from Barcelona.ADVERTISEMENT Trump signs bills in support of Hong Kong protesters “Neymar — the football version,” ran their headline on Saturday in a light-hearted reference to how the most expensive transfer in football history has dominated news despite Neymar not yet having kicked a ball in anger.“A trio of Neymar, Pastore and Angel di Maria will support (striker) Ederson Cavani,” predicted L’Equipe.The match in Guingamp kicks-off at 1900GMT.An hour later, and around 1,200km further south, Barcelona will start their first competitive match without Neymar by facing bitter rivals Real Madrid in the first leg of the Spanish Super Cup.Barca’s scattergun approach to finding a replacement for Neymar has so far been unsuccessful with bids for Liverpool’s Philippe Coutinho and Ousmane Dembele of Borussia Dortmund rebuffed.Gerard Deulofeu was handed Neymar’s role alongside Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez up front in Monday’s 5-0 friendly win over Chapecoense on his return to the club after spells at Everton and AC Milan.And the Spanish international took his chance with a goal and two assists in just 45 minutes on the field.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next NGCP on security risk: Chinese just technical advisers Sore left arm keeps Sharapova out of Cincinnati event Robredo should’ve resigned as drug czar after lack of trust issue – Panelo Celebrity chef Gary Rhodes dies at 59 with wife by his side “He’s physically ready to play the whole ninety minutes,” PSG coach Unai Emery told AFP.“He’s been working well and we looked hard at tactics and free-kicks.

DILG, PNP back suspension of classes during SEA Games “But the people here are not talking about Neymar. The people here support their team.”It will be a major culture shock for Neymar in a town which has a population of just 7,000 and is best known for its annual Breton dance showcase, the Saint Loup Festival which draws visitors from around the world.However, that’s not to say that Guingamp do not have football pedigree.They were French Cup winners in 2009 and 2014 and last season beat PSG 2-1 in the corresponding league fixture, the capital city club’s second defeat in four visits to Guingamp since their hosts were promoted in 2013.Furthermore, former Chelsea and Ivory Coast star Didier Drogba spent a season at the club in 2002/2003.ADVERTISEMENT Trending Articles PLAY LIST 00:50Trending Articles00:50Trending Articles00:50Trending Articles02:49Robredo: True leaders perform well despite having ‘uninspiring’ boss02:42PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games01:44Philippines marks anniversary of massacre with calls for justice01:19Fire erupts in Barangay Tatalon in Quezon City01:07Trump talks impeachment while meeting NCAA athletes02:49World-class track facilities installed at NCC for SEA Games MOST READ Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.
