Froch ordered to face Groves in rematch

first_imgThe International Boxing Federation has ordered a rematch between Carl Froch and George Groves.It means Froch must defend his super-middleweight crown against the Hammersmith man within 90 days or risk being stripped of the IBF title.It comes after champion Froch, who also holds the World Boxing Association’s version of the championship, suggested he was likely to fight Julio Cesar Chavez Jnr in Las Vegas rather than face Groves in his next bout.Groves, 25, was almost immediately reinstalled as the IBF’s mandatory challenger – a position he held prior to his clash with Froch in November.Groves was on top before being stopped.That fight ended in a controversial defeat for the previously unbeaten challenger, when referee Howard Foster halted the contest in the ninth round in what was widely seen as a premature stoppage.Despite being an underdog going into that fight, Groves floored the Nottingham man in the first round and wobbled him on several occasions before Foster abruptly stepped in after a flurry of shots from Froch.Groves would be in line to fight another opponent for the vacant title should Froch, 36, opt to relinquish the belt rather than agree to a rematch.See also:Heartbreak for Groves in world title clashFroch insists ref was right to stop fightPromoter predicts Froch-Groves rematchGroves: I’ll bounce back and be championGroves’ trainer reveals he had reservations about fight refereeGutted Groves says he proved he belongs at the top levelFroch claims Groves rejected rematch offerGroves to face Froch in rematch on 31 MayFroch-Groves rematch will be at WembleyGroves vows to avenge ‘stonewall robbery’Groves: My left hook will finish FrochFollow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

Awsm.fm = Ffffound + Tumblr + Your Favorite Music – Respect for Copyright

first_imgRelated Posts Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Tags:#Blogging#web jolie odell You can check out this profile page to see more Awsm.fm posts we created.As I’ve written in the past, users have been given more and more tools for grabbing, spreading and remixing content over the past 10 years since Napster’s birth. Most of those tools have been free or nearly so, and many of them border on piracy or explicitly enable it.The founder of Awsm.fm, who introduced himself to us as “Wan,” wrote that he is “sad by the lost of imeem, muxtape” and “frustrated at not being able to listen to lala.com.” A self-proclaimed indie music fan and programmer, Wan has created a tool that does something to help distribute independent music to listeners but nothing to help independent musicians track and profit from their music.However, as legendary rock music producer Steve Albini wrote in a comment on the above-linked post, “Internet file sharing is profoundly beneficial to bands in that it serves to promote them to a worldwide audience at no cost… I saw it in action myself last year when my band conducted hugely profitable tours of both South America and Eastern Europe, including places like Croatia, Bulgaria, Macedonia and Turkey, where our music has virtually no formal distribution. People came to our shows, knew our music and bought anything we had to sell them. They were familiar with us because the Internet allowed them to hear our music for free, and they developed a taste for it.”While independent musicians may receive some ancillary benefit from users’ getting to hear and distribute their music free of charge, other copyright-holding songwriters hold opinions very different from Albini’s. We read about lawsuits over this kind of issue every year, and as a musician myself, I certainly wouldn’t want a stranger scattering my songs to the four winds without my being able to track and monetize those listens, likes, shares and web traffic. There is, after all, something to be said for putting Ramen on the table of every starving artist.Note: For demo purposes, I’ve uploaded images that belong to me and close friends and music from bands I support and/or went to college with. Because I’m using their content and they deserve the plug, check out Chris Merritt if you’re into indie-type pop rock and Year Long Disaster if you’re of a more head-banging persuasion.For revenue, the site seems to plan on sponsored posts and advertising. If Wan has any idea about the cost of hosting and playing copyrighted music, he might consult imeem (sold at a huge loss because licensing fees were overwhelming the company) or Pandora (just now beginning to see profitability as a possibility), he must have some radically profitable alternatives up his sleeve.What do our musician/music startup friends have to say about Awsm.fm? Is it, as the name would imply, simply and clearly awesome – both for users and for the musicians they want to promote or share? Or is it just more 2.0 content theft? Let us know what you think in the comments. The new “artists” are curators of other people’s created content, if sites such as Tumblr, Ffffound, WeHeartIt and newcomer Awsm.fm are any kind of zeitgeist.Awsm.fm is a digital multimedia scrapbooking app that regards copyright issues with a gleeful abandon, allowing users to pick images and group them with text, tags and uploaded songs. But, licensing aside, the app does allow users to display their lovely and deeply sensitive tastes in pop music and evocative photography.The Awsm.fm user interface borrows liberally and haphazardly from a few sites we know and love, notably Vimeo. It’s a very new product and is still buggy with a UX that’s less than intuitive and occasionally frustrating.Although there is an attempt to attribute the uploaded songs by incorporating existing track information and letting users edit the artist and track title, there is no standardized way to link back to the music creator or ensure any work on the site is licensed for this kind of sharing. Images do link back to their original source, which may but will not always satisfy the copyright holder.Here’s an example of an Awsm.fm post, featuring an image, some text, a few tags, a comment box and a song I uploaded: A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic…last_img read more

Smart cities need banks’ data muscle more than governments

first_imgThough governments are vocal smart city champions, some industry pundits say connected cities need the data power of private sectors like banking to evolve.The future of smart cities was explored in a commentary on Payments Source by Hossein Rahnama, CEO of context-aware computing startup Flybits.As Internet of Things (IoT) technology proliferates throughout global cities, there is an accelerating need for smart cities to produce and analyze huge rivers of data. Rahnama says this creates a formidable challenge for local governments who are struggling to handle such large volumes of information and to find ways of paying for the needed technology upgrades.“The very nature of local governments — a collection of loosely connected, heavily siloed departments — should make this a not-so-surprising outcome,” said Rahnama. “The tech required to integrate departments in a way that makes even the most basic features of a smart city possible requires a huge investment of time and capital and a shift in culture.”Despite the efforts of Cisco and IBM to help cities scale up their data crunching capabilities, he suggests that when the full force of the coming data tsunami hits, governments will be overwhelmed.Smart cities can leverage private sector effortHowever, he argues that the banking sector already has the chops to handle the massive data flows expected from emerging smart cities.“It is more likely that private enterprise will transform the cities of the near future, and banks are in a unique position to lead that charge, with payments data leading the way,” he says.“Banks possess the payments and other transaction data that municipalities do not,” adds Rahnama. “That means banks can provide the kind of intelligent services and personalized information consumers yearn to have.”He also anticipates that physical bricks-and-mortar branches have a role to play in the smart city, contrary to the frequent prediction that physical branches will soon vanish.“Instead of closing branches, innovative banks will leverage them as hyperlocal information hubs and community search engines,” he says. “In this new model, local retailers and members will communicate, consult, and recommend services through their local branches as proxies.” Donal Power The Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technology Related Posts What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech …center_img How IoT Will Play an Important Role in Traffic … Tags:#Big Data#Cisco#Flybits#IBM#IoT#Smart Cities#transaction 6 User-Interface Musts for Personal Finance Appslast_img read more
