first_imgFormer Liverpool defender Sami Hyppia has recently revealed the game plan that could secure the victory for his former team against Bayern Munich.The Reds will take on the German champions next Tuesday at Anfield before travelling to the Allianz Stadium for the return leg on Wednesday, March 13.However, Hyppia who won the Champions League with the Reds in Istanbul in 2005 and later managed Bayer Leverkusen recently pointed out the gaps in the Bavarian side.Klopp on Bayern Munich being underdogs against Liverpool?🗣”I think that’s very funny!”🗣”I see two extremely strong teams facing each other where I don’t know who is going to go through.” pic.twitter.com/H9ZcvuHI5s— Anything Liverpool (@AnythingLFC_) February 14, 2019“Bayern haven’t done that well in their domestic league this season but they are still dangerous,” Hyypia told the Liverpool Echo.“We cannot afford to underestimate them. We have to go full on in both these games.RB Leipzig, Bayern Munich, Robert LewadowskiMatch Preview: RB Leipzig vs Bayern Munich Boro Tanchev – September 14, 2019 RB Leipzig will have the chance to prove their title-winning capabilities when they host Bayern Munich today at 18:30 (CET).Hyppia also reckoned the Reds will miss the services of Van Dijk but remained confident another player could fill in his shoes.“Virgil [van Dijk] will be missed but I’m not too worried. That creates an opportunity for someone else to step up and take more responsibility. There are other players who can take his place.“We need to be very sharp from the off in the first game. Ideally, you want a lead to take over to Munich.“I know Bayern quite well and I think their weakness is in defending counter-attacks. We aren’t that bad at counter-attacks and I can see us scoring a few goals against Bayern in that manner over the two legs.”🎵 Sunshine, l̶o̶l̶l̶i̶p̶o̶p̶s̶ ̶a̶n̶d̶ ̶r̶a̶i̶n̶b̶o̶w̶s̶ ☀️We’ll take it! 😎#packmas #FCAFCB pic.twitter.com/NWIaiEcNSQ— FC Bayern English (@FCBayernEN) February 13, 2019Bayern have struggled domestically this season and sit five points adrift of league leaders Borussia Dortmund in the table.A win over Augsburg in the Bundesliga fixture later today would further reduce the gap before their trip to Anfield.last_img read more


Source Interlink names John Marriott Head of Business Intelligence Division

Posted On Sep 14 2019 by

first_imgAs media companies continue to expand, offering customers and advertising clients more options to buy and sell wares, the collection of consumer data grows as well. To harness this data across its portfolio of products, enthusiast publisher Source Interlink Media created an initiative called Business Intelligence. This division, which exists in the Media and Sales & Logistics divisions at SIM, was launched to offer advertisers a holistic view of their target consumers’ interests and buying habits, by better integrating various data sources in-house for more strategic monetization of consumer-based data.John Marriott, senior vice president and general manager of Motor Trend Auto Shows, is now heading up the initiative as Business Intelligence’s senior vice president. His duties with Motor Trend Auto Shows will remain the same as he takes on the role of working with the Business Intelligence teams. Marriott says this is an opportunity borne of Source’s ability to work with consumers over an extended cycle of interest growth and product purchasing, “We’re trying to latch together all that data about those touch points, to track people as they move through the purchase funnel, in order to compare the behaviors between our customers and start to spot emerging trends, rather than seeing things that happened.” For Marriott, the end goal is directly tied to the advertisers currently working with SIM, “We want to begin to be at a position to see things as they happen, and eventually be able to employ some predictive modeling that will enable us to look forward and to spot things, which we can then present to the manufacturers.”Working with chief technology officer Raghu Bala, Marriott will put together a team of data mining staffers, database developers and statisticians. He says his first staffer is set to start next week, and the team will continue to grow over time.“What I’m excited about is getting to the point where we can really start applying statistical analysis on this vast amount of data, so we can start predicting and seeing those predictions come true, both for our internal staff and our advertisers,” Marriott says. “If we can help them better understand what their customers are saying about their products, how they’re viewing them and comparing them to other products, I think that’s going to generate a lot of value.”last_img read more

Former FARC Leaders Announce New Stage O

Posted On Aug 31 2019 by

first_img Jacobo Alape via YouTube by NPR News Sasha Ingber 8.29.19 4:45pm Top rebels from the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia have announced a “new stage of fighting,” despite a peace accord that the leftist guerrilla group signed with the national government almost three years ago.In a 32-minute YouTube video posted Thursday, more than 20 armed fighters stood in green fatigues and in front of a sign that read, “As long as there is a will to fight there will be hope for victory.”A guerrilla leader involved in the peace negotiations accused the government of betraying key components of the deal. “The state has not fulfilled its most important obligation, which is to guarantee the life of its citizens and especially avoid assassinations for political reasons,” said Luciano Marin, known widely by his nom de guerre, Iván Márquez.Under the peace treaty, thousands of Marxist- and Leninist-inspired guerrillas gave up their arms in exchange for the Colombian government’s commitment to protecting them and to building infrastructure in poor, isolated communities in the countryside. In May, Marin said that it was a mistake for FARC fighters to surrender their weapons without first getting guarantees.In the video, which appeared to be filmed in the jungle, Marin said the group planned to work with the National Liberation Army (ELN), another leftist guerrilla army which has resorted to kidnapping, extortion and violence.Hours later, an ELN leader embraced the announcement. “Better late than never,” Omar Gómez, known as Uriel, said through a face mask after giving a thumbs up and a clenched fist.Former FARC commander Rodrigo Londoño, now the president of Colombia’s Revolutionary Alternative Common Force political party, reiterated his commitment to the peace accord. He said on Thursday that the majority support working toward peace. “Now more than ever, our commitment as a majority, as a party, as a country, is to peace, defending and complying with the agreement,” he said. “Anyone who strays away from peace is mistaken, as those who have always attacked it.”Negotiations to end Colombia’s longest war, tracing back to the 1960s, started in 2012. Former President Juan Manuel Santos and Londoño signed a peace agreement in 2016. The move triggered a new wave of violence from armed groups that fought to take control of the FARC’s territory, displacing thousands in rural communities. Colombians, in a narrow margin, had previously voted to reject a peace deal.Last year, Colombians elected President Iván Duque, who campaigned on a promise to revise the controversial peace deal. A conservative populist, he said the agreement was too lenient for rebels who had kidnapped Colombian citizens and committed other atrocities. He vowed to make “war victims the focal point of the peace process.”Since taking office, he’s been accused of not just slowing down peace reforms but muddling significant facets of the agreement — especially tribunals that would allow insurgents to testify under broad immunity.”We cannot be stupid enough to think that … the government is an ally for peace,” Naryi Vargas, a researcher at the Peace and Reconciliation Foundation, an organization based in Colombia, tweeted Thursday.Bogota-based activist Luis Ernesto Gómez blamed Duque and former Colombian President Álvaro Uribe for FARC’s announcement. “Their political calculations and systematic sabotage of the Peace Process robbed us of a golden opportunity to stop killing each other and start making progress.”The 52-year war waged by FARC left at least 220,000 people dead.Duque has not publicly responded to the FARC video, and the Colombian Embassy in the United States did not immediately respond to NPR’s request for comment.Copyright 2019 NPR.
