Benitez talks about his time with Inter

first_imgThe Spanish manager and current Newcastle United boss lasted only six months at the helm of the Italian Lega Serie A giantsSpanish coach Rafael Benitez left Liverpool in 2010 after six years with the team, for what he thought was a better opportunity.He was hired as Internazionale Milan new boss in 2010, but he only lasted six months.“I won two titles at Inter: an Italian Super Cup and the Club’s World Cup”, Benitez was quoted by Calcio Mercato.Roberto Firmino, LiverpoolVirgil van Dijk praises Roberto Firmino after Liverpool’s win Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Virgil van Dijk hailed team-mate Roberto Firmino after coming off the bench to inspire Liverpool to a 3-1 comeback win against Newcastle United.“Moratti is a gentleman but he is in love with Inter and is way too emotive. He was doing everything for his players but he became nervous in a second after a bad result.”“I didn’t leave because of the senators. I had the support of Samuel, Cambiasso, Cordoba, Milito, and Zanetti. Eto’o scored 18 goals with me. Let’s say daddy Moratti didn’t want to sell his pupils,” he added.“I had 15 players who were over 30. We had a plan to rejuvenate the roster but we had the problem of the Financial Fair Play and I knew it when the market was already closed.”last_img read more

These are all controls that users of discrete graphics from Nvidia and AMD are used to, but which Intel never really had a reason to provide.I tried it on a few systems and didn’t see any real-time (or even delayed) affects on the previews, but it was an earlier version and it’s possible the screens weren’t good enough to reflect any subtle changes. But I was hoping for a big red “disable iGPU” button, anyway.IGCC will work on systems with sixth-generation Core chips (Skylake) or newer, and the old control panel will remain for a while — the IGCC will be available through the Microsoft Store until then (it’s free). While Intel may eventually release versions for MacOS and Linux, for now it’s Windows 10 only.The company also teased the release of its ninth-generation H-series processors — the performance-class mobile CPUs — indicating that we should see them (presumably in products) before the end of June.Intel’s presentation included a photo of the Microsoft Surface Studio as an example of its target user for the ninth-gen mobile H-series processors (desktop all-in-ones use mobile parts as a way to keep heat at bay) and while it might have only been illustrative, we’re hoping it means that the Studio will finally get the processor upgrade it deserves. When the newest model launched in the fall of 2018, its bump to only a quad-core seventh-gen i7 was disappointing. That’s especially true in light of Apple’s recent iMac updates, which added a top-end option for a ninth-gen i9.

Screenshot by Lori Grunin/CNET Intel flexed its graphics muscle at the Game Developers Conference, announcing the upcoming ninth-generation H-series processors (sorry, no details). It also announced a beta of a new GPU control panel that will eventually replace the Intel HD Graphics Panel you may be familiar with if your computer uses the graphics processor integrated into the Intel CPU.The new Intel Graphic Command Center (IGCC) is part of prepping the foundation for the company’s Ice Lake processors, with a new generation of the integrated GPU (iGPU) expected later this year, as well as paving the way for Intel’s discrete graphics debut in 2020.last_img read more

Pneumonia kills 2 children per hour in Bangladesh Report

first_imgSpeakers at the third annual launch of ‘Global Childhood Report 2019’ by Save the Children Bangladesh at National Press Club. Photo: UNB Pneumonia is still the leading cause of death among children under five in Bangladesh, killing two children on average every hour, according to a report published Wednesday, according to UNB.The third annual launch of ‘Global Childhood Report 2019’ by Save the Children Bangladesh in the capital’s National Press Club revealed the situation.Bangladesh is positioned at 127 out of 176 countries with the overall decreasing rate of child mortality at an impressive 63 per cent.According to the report, since 2000, Bangladesh has the highest reduction rate of children mortality in South Asia at 63 per cent. Other countries with closest reduction rate are Bhutan at 60 per cent, Nepal at 59 per cent and India at 57 per cent.Ishtiaq Mannan, deputy country director of Save the Children Bangladesh, said, “Children born in Bangladesh today have a much better chance of growing up healthy, happy, educated and protected, than they did 20 years ago.”However, he said that tackling the threat of Pneumonia, especially among remote rural communities, remains a challenge for everyone.Sabbir Ahmed, adviser to Save the Children Bangladesh, pointed out that malnutrition, pre-existing illness and environmental pollutions as three key factors responsible for Pneumonia.”According to WHO Health Observatory, Pneumonia claimed lives of approximately 16,960 children in 2016 in the country. Globally, 16 per cent of the total under-five deaths were due to Pneumonia the same year,” he said.Sabbir also said Bangladesh has scopes to improve the scenario as good progress has been made in immunisation coverage.Save the Children Bangladesh suggested inclusion on pneumococcal vaccine in the government’s routine EPI system to protect the majority of the children.Launched ahead of International Children’s Day, Save the Children’s Global Childhood Report 2019 includes the annual End of Childhood Index, which finds that circumstances for children have improved in 173 out of 176 countries since 2000.The report also shows that displacement due to conflict is on the rise, with 30.5 million more forcibly displaced people now than there were in 2000 – an 80 per cent increase.Singapore tops the rankings as the country that best protects and provides for its children, with eight Western European countries and South Korea also ranking in the top 10.The most dramatic progress was among some of the world’s poorest countries, with Sierra Leone making the biggest improvements since 2000, followed by Rwanda, Ethiopia and Niger.The Central African Republic ranks last, with Niger – despite recent progress – and Chad rounding out the bottom three countries where childhoods are most threatened.last_img read more

New DC Fashion Art Gallery Opens as the The Museum

first_imgThe Museum on opening night. (Twitter Photo)The Museum isn’t your typical art gallery. After launching on April. 8, many young D.C. residents are already showing up at this creative space.Greg Harrison, general manager, said The Museum is an attempt to influence young leaders in the world of fashion and art through his eyes.“I expected more,” said Harrison. “I’m an extremist.”Before Harrison became an owner of his own art gallery, he was heavily involved in the music industry. In 2008 he owned a “multifaceted marketing and managing company” which helped build brands for their clients involved in music, entertainment, sports management and more.As a proud native of D.C., he has worked with music artists who have taken their talents outside of the district (respectfully) while working with Wale and Northeast rapper, Fat Trel.Growing up in Southeast, D.C., Harrison saw his city rapidly changing for the better and worse, but knew in order for him to continue to see his city grow in a positive direction, it would start with working with other inspirational artists who shared his passion.Even though the fashion and art gallery carries an un-Googleable name, it is far from an actual museum. Harrison focuses on the “root” word of museum, “muse.” He wants his shop to become “a source of inspiration” for other artists to follow. “We wanted to display artwork from the old D.C. culture,” said Harrison.Thus far, The Museum has hosted an array of pop up shops, a fashion show collaboration with Reebok, a book signing with Karen Civil, author of “Be You & Live Civil,” and listening parties.Located in Northeast, D.C., The Museum is surrounded by a small market strip that serves more nutritional meals than your average fast food carryout most may run into while in D.C. “This looks like Fairfax District in L.A. to me, so to me this is going to be Fairfax,” said Harrison. “I want to have that coffee shop feel. This is a more family and more neighborhood feel…it’s like that pure culture.”Inside the art space the feel of the energy of urban culture and a modern lifestyle is everywhere. From graffiti that says, “The Museum” to an exclusive sneaker collection displayed as art to hand crafted chairs and a sofa blocked off by a gated rope, because it is not art but furniture for sale for between $2400 and $7500.Further inside the building there are canvas paintings, a station for people to curate posts on social media, figurines, sneakers, and clothing and accessories from well-known designer labels like Ceast and Desist, Billionaire Boys Club and Publish.Harrison collaborates with many brands by hosting pop up shops before selling any of the designer’s merchandise at The Museum. “When we do pop up shops that’s how we introduce new brands,” said Harrison. The Museum even has their own private label that is sold in the store, like their original Southeast hoodies, called “S.E” as well as designer fitted baseball caps.As for how the art displayed is picked, “For the most part we’ve been getting artists who’ve been organically hitting us up,” said Harrison.For more information go to read more
