Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola is unconcerned by the high expectations on them ahead of their Champions League opener against LyonThe Premier League champions have never managed to progress past the semi-final stage of the competition.And City have not faired any better under Guardiola with the club exiting at the last-16 stage in his first season in charge before losing to Liverpool in last term’s quarter-finals.Yet City enters this season’s Champions League as one of the favourites to win alongside the likes of Real Madrid and Juventus.But Guardiola, who led Barcelona to the European title twice, is refusing to pay too much attention to the expectations on his squad.“I’m not worried or concerned for one second about expectation or whether we deserve more credit for the Champions League,” he told the club website.Premier League Betting: Match-day 5 Stuart Heath – September 14, 2019 Going into the Premier League’s match-day five with a gap already beginning to form at the top of the league.

If we get the credit it will be because we deserve it.“I want to see my team play better and cut out mistakes.“That is what I want – what happens out on the pitch is the real judge for me.”After facing Lyon in their first Group F game on Wednesday, City will then take on Hoffenheim and Shakhtar Donetsk.
Arsenal defender Laurent Koscielny insists his return to first-team action following a long spell out due to injury marked a new chapter in his life.The Gunners player suffered a ruptured Achilles during the club’s UEFA Europa League semifinal game against Atletico Madrid in May, but marked his return to action during the club’s 1-0 win over Qarabag on Thursday night.“During rehab, you have you and yourself,” he said, according to the Telegraph. “For me it was very important to stay in my bubble and to be focused with one target: to come back stronger and quicker. You have not just good moments, you have some bad ones, some days you can’t progress as you wish.”“This is difficult, but you have the people around you to help you and keep your head up. Football is just a part of my life. I have a life outside the pitch. Now with my physical state and my head, I am calmer and I just want to enjoy.”Premier League Betting: Match-day 5 Stuart Heath – September 14, 2019 Going into the Premier League’s match-day five with a gap already beginning to form at the top of the league. We will take a…Asked about his first appearance of the season, in which he played 72 minutes, Koscielny added:“It was a special day for me after seven months. Just before you come onto the pitch, you think about what you did. I had some flashes in my head of the seven months of rehab I did. Now it’s the end.”“I have been running since the end of August and I was near the team during the training sessions. I watched all the training so I know all the tactics, all the runs, when we have the ball, when we need to defend, when we need to press.”Koscielny’s return for the Gunners is a welcomed relief for manager Unai Emery, who is without the suspended duo of Sokratis and Shkodran Mustafi, while Rob Holding misses out due to injury.

That would keep Google from knowing what its billion-plus Chrome users are up to.Firefox maker Mozilla gave Apple’s idea a warm reception and said it’ll participate in discussions about it.”We believe ad click attribution is an important use of cross-site measurement on the web today. In fact, we’ve identified it as such in our antitracking policy,” said Steven Englehardt, Firefox privacy engineer. “We’d like to explore solutions that allow for it without putting users’ privacy at risk, and believe Apple’s proposal is one possible solution.”Privacy has become a high priority in tech with Facebook’s Cambridge analytica scandal, the growing use of facial recognition, the abundance of digital traces we leave online and the unceasing data breaches and leaks. “The future is private,” Facebook Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg declared at the company’s developer conference in April.Millions of people use ad blockers in their browsers, but browsers are getting more assertive about blocking tracking, too.

Newer browser approaches to dealing with tracking are taking unilateral action.The Interactive Advertising Bureau, which represents online advertisers and publishers, doesn’t like what’s happening, calling for clear federal regulations governing personal data — an idea it calls “Do Not Track Plus.” “The work being done by big platforms and browser makers is useful, because it will contribute to a federal or global solution. But it won’t substitute for it,” IAB Chief Executive Randall Rothenberg and public policy leader Dave Grimaldi said in a May blog post. “We shouldn’t have a thousand different methods for managing digital privacy, confusing consumers and sowing chaos among businesses.

And Apple is proposing it become something all browsers can embrace as a standard.”As more and more browsers acknowledge the problems of cross-site tracking, we should expect privacy-invasive ad click attribution to become a thing of the past,” said John Wilander, the Apple programmer behind Safari’s earlier Intelligent Tracking Prevention project, in a blog post about the new technology.The move increases Apple’s pressure on tech companies to protect privacy — and spotlights its ability to profit from that push, in contrast to giants like Facebook and Google whose businesses rely on online ads.Apple angered the ad tech industry with its earlier Intelligent Tracking Prevention technology, which reins in cookies — especially third-party cookies that ad companies place on websites they don’t operate.Facebook and Google didn’t immediately respond to requests for comment.Today’s ad technology often tracks you as you go from one website to another, a process that relies on small text files called cookies that an advertiser or website can instruct your browser to store. Cookies can record that you saw a particular ad on one site and then bought the advertised product on another site, information that’s very useful for advertisers but that can harvest huge amounts of data about online behavior.Apple’s approach, in comparison, measures whether ads were successful within the browser instead of leaving it to advertising companies that track you online.

CosmoQuest, a project run out of the Planetary Science Institute that supports citizen science initiatives, offers additional user assistance through an online community where mappers can share tips and high-fives and ask questions. CosmoQuest also shares guidance through livestreaming sessions on Twitch. The original design for capturing a piece of the space rock was based on locating a hazard-free zone with a 160-foot (25-meter) radius on Bennu’s surface. However, because of the unexpectedly rocky terrain, the team is yet to identify such a site.The volunteer asteroid mapping is straightforward work that involves dragging and dropping, an eye for detail and a bit of perseverance. When I signed up Wednesday night at about 9 p.m. PT, more than 70 “Bennu Mappers” were online scouring the asteroid’s surface. The Bennu mapping campaign continues through July 10.An easy-to-follow tutorial helps Bennu Mappers get going. Screenshot by Leslie Katz/CNET Bennu measures about 1,600 feet (500 meters), only slightly wider than the height of the Empire State Building, and is considered potentially hazardous. “There’s a very small chance that it will impact Earth in the next century,” Burns has said. Which means you probably don’t need to get out your helmet just yet.In its first five months communing with Bennu, Osiris-Rex has already discovered trapped water and determined that Bennu is between 100 million and a billion years old, making it significantly more mature than predicted. But the mission’s coup de theatre, the sample grab, won’t take place until 2020. That’s when the spacecraft’s fancy robotic arm will reach out and tag the asteroid’s surface with its Touch-And-Go Sample Arm Mechanism, or Tagsam.While touching the rock, the arm will blow a burst of nitrogen gas to loosen up bits of debris that will be then be brought back to Earth when the spacecraft returns in September 2023.The asteroid may contain unaltered material from the beginning of our solar system. The hope is that Bennu’s cargo will yield insights into astronomical processes and resources in near-Earth space and improve our understanding of asteroids that could impact Earth.

NASA/Goddard/University of Arizona Before NASA’s Osiris-Rex spacecraft can reach out and grab a piece of asteroid Bennu, it needs to find a safe spot on the space rock’s surface. And for that, NASA wants your help. Osiris-Rex, which arrived at Bennu on Dec. 3, 2018, aims to become the first US spacecraft to return a sample from an asteroid to Earth. Japan’s Hayabusa mission brought back asteroid particles in 2010, with another asteroid-wrangling mission out of Japan under way this year.Since the NASA craft arrived at Bennu, the team has discovered an extremely rocky terrain that threatens the vehicle’s safety. So NASA is asking volunteers to develop a hazard map by measuring Bennu’s boulders and mapping its rocks and craters via a web interface. “Bennu has surprised us with an abundance of boulders,” Rich Burns, Osiris-Rex project manager at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, said in a statement. “We ask for citizen scientists’ help to evaluate this rugged terrain so that we can keep our spacecraft safe during sample collection operations.” 1 Now playing: Watch this: Sci-Tech Being Bennu Visit to Bennu reveals rubble trouble and seeds of life Osiris-Rex finds water in its first week at asteroid Bennu Spacecraft drops into orbit around asteroid Bennu
Parents of Benito Mussolini, a 14-month old baby, have been summoned to appear in an Italian court over their son’s controversial name, according to a newspaper report.Young Benito is named after one of his grandfathers, a common enough practise in Italy.The problem is that the family name is Mussolini, making the child the namesake of the World War II era fascist dictator, no relation.The unusual name has now come to the attention of a court in the northern city of Genoa, according to the daily Gazzetta di Parma, among concerns for the child’s welfare in later years.For Italians the issue recalls the debate generated by the 2015 film “Il nome del figlio” (“An Italian Name), an Italian adaptation of a French film, in which a man wants to call his son Benito.The issue also has echoes of a court case in Milan brought against parents who called their child “Blu” (Blue), a name which the local prosecutor took exception to.
