They were leading late on but had their advantage at the top of the Premier League cut after Joe Allen’s late equaliser gave Liverpool a fortunate point.Olivier Giroud’s second-half strike – his second of the night and 18th of the season – looked to have put the Gunners on course for a crucial victory, but substitute Allen rewarded the hosts for a display bursting with energy and spirit with a low 90th-minute finish.Roberto Firmino twice gave Liverpool the lead in the first half, the second a spectacular 20-yard drive, but Arsenal took advantage of poor defending from J¸rgen Klopp’s side to level through Aaron Ramsey and Giroud.The Gunners, though, will be determined to win at the Britannia Stadium; not only are points needed in the race to become Premier League champions but their record at Stoke in the competition is poor.last_img read more

Liverpool star ‘can beat any player in this league’ says defender Toure

first_imgLiverpool defender Kolo Toure has hailed Raheem Sterling following the Harlesden teenager’s recent performances. The 19-year-old has gone from strength to strength this season and has made nine consecutive starts for Brendan Rodgers’ side.Sterling has been touted as a strong contender for England’s World Cup squad, particularly as Arsenal’s Theo Walcott has been ruled out of the tournament with a knee injury.“For me at the moment Raheem is one of the best players in our team,” Toure told the Liverpool Echo.“He can beat any player in this league with his pace and skill. He’s very strong and compact. He works so hard for the team and this boy certainly has a very bright future.“He’s playing more games now and when you play a number of games in a row you get a lot of confidence. For a young player like that to be playing at that level is amazing.”See also:Sterling assured over Liverpool role Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

Will Hotmail Get Offline Storage Before Gmail?

first_imgRole of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement The Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technology Tags:#Google#Microsoft#mobile#NYT#web#Web Development#Web Office Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech …center_img Microsoft is working on an HTML5-enabled version of its Hotmail Web application, according to a new report from ZDNet. The updated version will deliver offline storage capabilities, which means webmail users will be able to access their email even when an Internet connection is not available. A similar feature is supposedly in the works for Gmail, Hotmail’s top competitor, as well.With Microsoft’s initiatives in the area of HTML5 (the next major revision of the Web’s core markup language), including its HTML5-enabled version of Bing search, and updates to Microsoft’s Internet Explorer 9 Web browser, it wouldn’t be surprising to hear that Microsoft is indeed working on an HTML5-enabled Hotmail Web application, too. But will Microsoft actually release it before Google does the same for Gmail? That could make things interesting.Could Microsoft Actually Beat Google to HTML5-Enabled Offline Storage for Webmail?In February 2010, Google announced it was shifting all its Google Gears-related efforts to HTML5. Gears, an internally built Web browser plugin, brought offline storage capabilities to a number of Google services, including Gmail, Docs, YouTube, Reader and others. In April 2010, Google announced it would discontinue offline access in Google Docs provided by Gears in favor of HTML5. The transition would be “temporary” Google said. In December, Google announced Docs would have finally HTML5-enabled offline storage once again in “early 2011.”It is now April 2011, and there is still no offline functionality in either Gmail or Docs. According to a post from a Google employee at the beginning of this month on an official Google support forum, the company says it mis-estimated the timeline for the change in Docs.“Hi all,We’re sorry we mis-estimated the timeline for when we’d have offline functionality again. While we try to provide accurate information around when features will be released, in some instances we can be wrong in guessing how long it’ll take to build something. Morever, it’s more important for us to launch with as few bugs as possible, which can only happen after much testing and iteration. Rest assured that our engineering team is working hard to bring offline back. Hope you’ll stick around and be patient with us for a bit longer.”Small Advances in HTML5 via Mobile and More That’s not to say HTML5 developments have stalled at Google. It has rolled out HTML5-enabled mobile apps, select features and notifications for Gmail, plus HTML5-enabled cloud printing support for mobile users of Docs. It has just not launched offline storage yet.Meanwhile, although Microsoft never offered any form of offline storage for Hotmail, it has been publicly touting its HTML5 advances recently, including an HTML5 version of Bing search, an HTML5-enabled smartphone experience and HTML5 support in IE9.Of course, Microsoft’s version of HTML5 support for IE may not be the same one the rest of the online community believes in, as ZDNet points out, referencing Firefox’s Mike Beltzner’s comment skewering Microsoft for Microsoft for describing HTML5 as a “native experience” that works best on Windows. (Oh Microsoft, will you never learn?)That said, Microsoft at least seems to be making more noise about the HTML5 Web standard in its products these days, while Google is now on record saying it goofed on the timeline for bringing HTML5 to one of its Web services.With that in mind, let’s declare the race to bring us HTML5-enabled offline storage to webmail officially on. Anyone want to take bets on who gets there first? Related Posts sarah perezlast_img read more

Cowboys Offer Scholarship to Kelby Wickline, Son of former OSU Coach

first_imgFormer Oklahoma State offensive line coach Joe Wickline was regarded as one of the best coaches at the position during his tenure at OSU, so it should come as no surprise that his son, Kelby, has developed into a Div. I prospect at the position.According to a tweet that was shared by Kelby himself, OSU has extended a scholarship offer to Kelby this week. Kelby began his career at UTSA in 2015, and is now a 2017 prospect playing for Jones County Junior College.He has offers reported on the 247sports recruiting website from Missouri, Iowa State, Cal, Kansas, Kentucky, SMU, Southern Miss, TCU, UAB, Western Kentucky, and West Virginia.Wickline originally joined the WVU program earlier in May of this year, before heading to junior college. A 6-foot-5, 275-pound prospect, Kelby is a highly sought after offensive lineman and with OSU’s connections, should be an interesting recruitment to follow.His father, Joe Wickline, who is now the offensive coordinator for West Virginia, coached the offensive line at Oklahoma State under Mike Gundy. So the timing for the offer, with the Mountaineers travelling to Stillwater this weekend, is pretty interesting as well.
