first_imgCaribbean Foods Limited through its Foska Oats brand continues to show its support for sports after handing over a $1 million cheque to Melbourne Cricket Club towards their 2017 programme. The sponsorship will go towards Melbourne’s cricket academy, camp and 5K road race with the senior cup team now expected to wear Foska Oats branded gear as a part of the agreement. “The academy that started last year (is for) all cricketers, you don’t have to be affiliated with Melbourne. The sponsorship is always good, and we are thankful to Foska Oats for their contribution to the development of Melbourne,” Mark Neita, Melbourne’s club president said during a media launch at Melbourne Oval on Thursday. “We also have a learning centre open to the young cricketers attending the academy and camps. We want to pay attention to the educational aspect of the cricketers. We want fully developed kids,” Neita disclosed. Melbourne is under renovation and Neita pointed out that the brand will attract sponsorship. “In order to attract sponsorship, we have to protect the brand. We spent $7 million to renovate the facility. We want to ensure a first class facility at Melbourne,” he added. Christopher Ramson, a director of Caribbean Foods Limited said that his company is committed to the partnership formed with Melbourne. ‘The Foska Oats brand is pleased to once again be aligned with the Melbourne Cricket Club, and the development of the sport of cricket in Jamaica. Melbourne Cricket Club, like Foska Oats has had a long and successful history in Jamaica, especially in the area of youth development,” Ramson said. “This is one of the reasons that in 2015, when we were approached by Mark Neita, that we did not hesitate on forging a relationship with Melbourne Cricket Club through the Foska Oats/Melbourne Cricket camp. This is a relationship that has not only helped in securing the future of Jamaica’s cricket through the development of young players, but a relationship that will provide so many young people with the opportunity to help themselves out of poverty and difficult circumstances through sports,” he added. President of Jamaica Cricket Association (JCA) Wilford ‘Billy’ Heaven commended Melbourne for their development programme. “We need to apply educational skill to play the game. For us to read the game, we want to be properly developed in the mind. We want to thank you Mr Ramson,” Heaven said.last_img read more

first_imgWolfram Alpha has assembled an impressive collection of information on everything from chemistry to high finance, but until recently external developers could only access it by paying between two and six cents per query. Today the company announced a big change to its pricing plans which gives non-commercial users 2,000 free calls a month, as well as adding new features like the asynchronous delivery of slower results. With few external applications appearing to use the old interface, can these changes open it up to a wider audience of developers? Tags:#APIs#hack The easiest way to try it for yourself is through their API Explorer page. If you enter a query, you’ll see the XML results appear, along with the URL you’d call from your application to run the same search. The results are split up into sections that Wolfram describe as “Pods.” Each one of these corresponds to a different nugget of information related to the terms you entered, and matches the way results are shown in the normal Web interface. The API itself is very similar to the Wolfram Alpha Web interface. Developers pass in a query string, and then get back XML results that reflect exactly what you’d see in the browser for the same search. This makes it ideal for formatting and displaying to users, since you get back plain text descriptions and images visualizing the information. This is exactly how most of Wolfram’s flagship customers have been using it. For example Bing displays information from Alpha alongside its own search results, and Touch Press uses it to supplement its interactive books. Stephen Wolfram and his team have created an astonishingly powerful collection of information. As he puts it on the Wolfram blog, the dream is to make this “computable knowledge” available to immediately enhance any program that’s connected to the service. Today’s announcement is a big step forward to opening it up to far more developers, but it will need much more computer-readable results before it will really fulfill that promise. Do you agree, or am I misunderstanding the power of the API as it is right now? Are there existing applications beyond the handful that Wolfram highlight? Let us know in the comments. pete warden There’s a complete reference guide available as a PDF, detailing the options you can specify to narrow down your query, as well as the meaning of some of the results sections. Why You Love Online Quizzes How to Write a Welcome Email to New Employees? This is great if you want to show the information immediately to users, but what if you want to understand and process the data as part of your application? You might want run your own analysis on a company’s share price, but you’ll have a tough time converting their plain text results into numbers you can feed into an algorithm, and though their Mathematica versions are structured, it’s not a simple format to read in. This may not be accidental – their terms of service make it clear that you can’t “access, cache, store, retain, or in any way compile any copies or portion of any Wolfram|Alpha content.” Wolfram has built up a large and valuable collection of data, and the company doesn’t want to make it too accessible for fear that it may be copied. There is a sign of hope though in the mention of an upcoming data API, which sounds like it might offer a more programmer-friendly version of the results.

But they were very clinical.”Of course we are so disappointed. I cannot say another thing other than I feel very very disappointed. I feel so bad because when you concede seven goals it is tough, but you need to face up to this type of situation.”When you play the final of the Champions League, it was nice to put your face up after the wins we had at Manchester City and Ajax. Now I have to put my same face up and accept we were not as good as we expected.” last_img read more
