first_imgFulham were grateful for a glaring miss by Leon Clarke to keep the FA Cup third-round tie goalless at the break.When Bakary Sako’s shot on the half-hour mark cannoned back off the post, Clarke looked certain to net the rebound – only to prod wastefully wide of an open goal.It was the clearest chance of a fairly flat first half, in which Fulham strung together some attractive football at times without seriously hurting the Wolves defence.Hugo Rodallega was a thorn in the visitors’ side and he was unfortunate to see an overhead kick loop just over the bar on 39 minutes.The Colombian then fashioned an equally acrobatic volley from Seko Fofana’s cross just before half-time, but it flew wide.In the last action of the half, Sako sent a free-kick dipping just over Marcus Bettinelli’s crossbar.Earlier, Cauley Woodrow squandered the best opportunity of a lifeless first half hour when he blazed over the bar from just inside the box.Lasse Vigen Christensen, who was named in the starting line-up despite having only returned to training on Friday, lasted only 32 minutes before he limped off, replaced by Sean Kavanagh. Fulham:  Bettinelli; Grimmer, Hutchinson, Bodurov, Stafylidis; Parker; Christensen (Kavanagh 32), Fofana; McCormack; Rodallega, Woodrow.Subs: Kiraly, Burn, Kavanagh, Roberts, Ruiz, Williams, Dembélé. Wolves:  Ikeme; Iorfa, Batth, Stearman, Doherty; Evans, Price, Henry, Edwards, Sako; Clarke.Subs: Kuszczak, Saville, Ricketts, McAlinden, Ebanks-Landell, Jacobs, Dicko.Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

first_img17 November 2011The Oxford Business Group, in partnership with the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), has launched a nine-month study that is expected to provide unique insight into the workings of South Africa’s economy.“The Report: South Africa 2012”, to be released next year, will also explore investment opportunities within South Africa’s borders.Its conclusions would “accurately capture the dynamics of Africa’s most vibrant economy and help to brand South Africa as a destination for investment in business,” DTI chief director for international trade Brendan Vickers said at the launch of the study in Johannesburg on Wednesday.The DTI noted that although South Africa had made great strides since achieving democracy in 1994, the country was still grappling with poverty and unemployment. Addressing this would require extensive knowledge, not just of the South African market but of other developing countries as well.“We are pleased to support the launch of the report, based on an appreciation of the role OBG plays in accurately and thoroughly educating both the domestic and international investment communities of both the challenges and opportunities of doing business in emerging markets,” Vickers said.The study will see dedicated researchers visiting and conducting interviews with key players in the various sectors of South Africa’s economy.The Oxford Business Group (OBG) is a global publishing, research and consultancy firm that publishes economic intelligence on markets in Africa, Asia and the Middle East, among others.This will be OBG’s third report on South Africa, which will now be conducted annually. The research will be wholly funded by the OBG.OBG regional editor Robert Tshima described the South African market as a dynamic market worthy of research, as was evident from the country’s well capitalized banks, among others.The OBG is hoping to meet with up to five organisations per day to discuss how they perceive the particular sector they are in. Interactions will be both with the public and private sector.BuaNewslast_img read more

first_imgBy HLundgaard (Own work) [CC BY-SA 3.0 (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0)], via Wikimedia CommonsWith the recent news of credit card fraud, the mobile phone industry has made a big push to get behind mobile payment. Mobile payment has been touted as a way to reduce credit card fraud because the cashier doesn’t have access to a physical card that would contain an individual’s name, credit card number or security code.If you are thinking about beginning to get in to the mobile payment system, but still concerned about security and fraud, here’s what you need to know.The two major smartphone platforms, Apple (Apple Pay) and Google (Google Wallet) have implemented their solutions in order to address credit card fraud. Apples system launched in 2014 while Google’s launched in 2011. Following are the details of how each addresses security and fraud.Apple Pay implementation of mobile payment security is to combine near-field communications (NFC) technology for payment processing and the iPhone Touch ID fingerprint reader or passcode for security. Your bank payment network creates a unique device account number specifically tied to the phone and to the credit card added. In the event of theft or a lost phone, you can place your phone in lost mode to suspend Apple Pay transaction. Apple Pay is reactivated once you unlock your phone with your pin code.Google Wallet implementation of mobile payments also uses NFC technology for payment processing but instead of a fingerprint reader like the Apple Pay’s implementation, you use a PIN that only you know. Google stores your credit card information on its server and transmit the encrypted data using secure socket layer technology. Google Wallet Fraud Protection covers 100 percent of all transactions. In the event of theft or a lost phone, you can go to the Google Wallet website and remotely disable your phone.Both Apple and Google offer similarities in how they address credit card fraud. They both use NFC which means that the phone and the receiver have to be very close to each other in order to begin the financial process transaction. They also implement security on the phone through the use of either fingerprint reader and/or passcodes. Both companies utilize tokenization which allows the credit card number to be unique and transaction specific. With the mobile payment industry expected to account for up to 50 percent of all U. S. digital commerce by 2017, these companies are aggressively promoting their platform as a way to provide consumer confidence in mobile payments as a measure in increasing security and preventing fraud.Author: Terrence Wolfork (+Terrence Wolfork,@trwolfork )This post was published on the Military Families Learning Network blog on April 30, 2015. This work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Unported License.last_img read more

first_imgThe 23-year-old law student, who has accused BJP leader and former Union Minister Swami Chinmayanand of rape, was taken to Bareilly on Monday for her first semester back paper amid tight security.The law student, accused of extortion of money from Chinmayanand and presently in jail, was taken to MJP University in Bareilly for her first term LLM back paper, Superintendent of Police City Dinesh Tripathi said. The woman, who was studying in Chinmayanand’s Swami Shukdevanand Law College, was given admission to the Bareilly college on the Supreme Court’s directions in order to ensure her education. Her counsel Kulvinder Singh had moved an application before Chief Judicial Magistrate Omvir Singh to let her appear in the exam. The CJM’s court gave permission for the same on November 23, the SP said.Summons issued In another development, the Special Investigation Team probing the case has submitted a chargesheet against two BJP leaders, who have been summoned by the court. “Summonses have been sent to Chairman of Cooperative Bank D.P.S. Rathore and BJP leader Ajit Singh, who have been asked to appear before the court on December 3,” government counsel Lal Saheb said.Mr. Rathore and Mr. Singh are accused of snatching a pen drive, containing a video clip of the woman giving massage to Chinmayanand, from her in Rajasthan’s Dausa. The post-graduate student has alleged that she was physically exploited by the 72-year-old BJP leader for a over a year. Chinmayanand was booked under section 376 C of the IPC, which is usually applied in cases where a person abuses his position to “induce or seduce” a woman under his charge to have “sexual intercourse not amounting to the offence of rape”. This is a lesser charge than section 376, under which a rape convict faces a maximum punishment of life imprisonment. The punishment under section 376 C is between five and 10 years in jail. The woman and three of her friends have been arrested for demanding ₹5 crore from the BJP leader.last_img read more

first_imgIn a nod to her untiring support for refugees, UN High Commissioner for Refugees Filippo Grandi today renewed Chinese actress Yao Chen’s tenure as UNHCR’s Goodwill Ambassador for an additional two years.Filippo Grande presents a certificate of renewal to UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador Yao ChenCredit/Copyright: UNHCR/Wang WeiGrandi met Yao Chen on Wednesday as part of his inaugural visit to China to explore how Beijing can play a greater role in addressing global displacement through approaches such as South-South Cooperation and the “One Belt One Road” initiative.Appointed as UNHCR’s Goodwill Ambassador in June 2013, Yao Chen was honoured at the Crystal Awards in Davos last year for her work to raise awareness of the global refugee crisis on behalf of UNHCR. With 80 million followers on Weibo – the Chinese equivalent of Twitter – she has ranked among Forbes’ World’s Most Powerful Women and Time’s 30 Most Influential People.“Thanks to Yao Chen, refugees have entered the consciousness of millions of Chinese people,” said Grandi. “Her unique voice has helped them to look beyond the numbers and see refugees as real people seeking to find some normalcy when their lives have fallen apart.”During her time with UNHCR, Yao Chen has met refugees in some of the world’s largest host countries, including Syrian refugees in Lebanon, Afghan refugees in Pakistan, Somali refugees in Ethiopia and Myanmar refugees in Thailand.“Refugees can often feel like a distant issue, far removed from our daily lives,” said Yao Chen. “But their plight is a symptom of the world we live in. In this global village, we are all connected and inter-dependent in one way or another.”She added that she will continue to work closely with UNHCR to bring the public’s attention to both refugee emergencies and protracted situations of displacement.last_img read more
