Romero Solskjaer has brought happiness back to Man United

first_imgGoalkeeper Sergio Romero believes interim coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has boosted Manchester United’s confidence and brought back a “certain happiness”Since his appointment last month at Old Trafford, Solskjaer has gone on to match the legendary Sir Matt Busby’s record of winning all five of his opening games.Aside from that, United have also returned to their usual style of attacking football after deploying a rather conservative and unattractive style of football under former manager Jose Mourinho.And Romero believes that the results achieved under Solskjaer have given United a new-found level of confidence as they look to end the season with a top-four finish in the Premier League.“We’ve had a great run,” Romero told the club website .Jose Mourinho is sold on Lampard succeeding at Chelsea Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 14, 2019 Jose Mourinho wanted to give his two cents on Frank Lampard’s odds as the new Chelsea FC manager, he thinks he will succeed.There really…“Not just the results, but the way in which we have won the games as well. Scoring five goals in one match was a big boost to confidence and was really something.“What we’re showing now, after a great Christmas, is only right for a club of this stature, [it] proves what we can do. The run we’ve had over Christmas and the new year is a testament to that.”Romero added: “[The manager] knows what he wants to achieve – both for the club and us as individuals. On the pitch and within the club, he has made it very clear from the outset so we know the expectation of us inside the club and externally.“You can see he has brought to the club a certain happiness and it is going well.”The Red Devils will take on Tottenham on Sunday at Wembley in the Premier League.last_img read more

Intel Core i99980HK leads secondwave ninthgeneration CPU blitz

first_img 4.3 6/12 For ninth-generation, many of these are minor bumps over their predecessors, albeit not all in the same way. For instance, the mobile i7-9750H has a slightly faster boost clock of 4.5GHz to the i7-8750H’s 4.3GHz, plus an extra 3MB of cache, while the i5-9400H just gets a tiny bump of 0.1MHz in the boost clock.However, the supporting chipset for the ninth-gen mobile processors brings support for Wi-Fi 6 AX200, Intel Optane H10 (which can integrate the storage cache with the SSD), and 128GB RAM.Keep in mind that these are the higher-end processors designed for larger laptops, not the Y and U series processors which power slim or light laptops like ultraportables. Those usually show up near the end of August, in time for you to put sleek, tiny notebooks on your holiday shopping list.Nevertheless, these new processors will be everywhere by the end of May, if not earlier. Intel and Nvidia simultaneously announced their newest mobile parts, guaranteeing a deluge of gaming system updates. Asus, Razer and Lenovo were only a fraction of the gaming notebook makers who told us of their plans in advance.Despite the small advance ninth-generation conveys as well as its certain ubiquity, you’ll probably be able to pick up an older eighth-gen laptop on sale from any major manufacturer in the coming months. However they won’t have the latest generation of Nvidia graphics — no one’s going to put a new GPU with an old CPU, though that’s a marketing, not technology, issue — and that’s something you might miss.As with the mobile processors, what’s most interesting about the desktop CPUs is the arrival of the eight-core/16-thread i9-9900 variants in lower-power, locked versions — in other words, designed for compact desktops and all-in-ones (i9-9900T) or content-creation desktops which don’t require the thermal flexibility to support an overclocked i9-9900K (the i9-9900), and can therefore be smaller but not sacrifice that 5GHz maximum boost. Share your voice Now playing: Watch this: 5.0 i9-9980HK Asus updates every gaming laptop it can think of Base clock Tags i5-9400H Cache The convertible Asus ROG Mothership GZ700GX and its clamshell alter ego, the ROG G703, are among the first to pack the Core i9-9980HK processor. Mark Licea/CNET Intel launched its ninth-generation (aka Coffee Lake refresh) desktop CPUs in October 2018 with its most powerful offerings, and true to form now hits us with its mobile analogs, the H series Core i9, i7 and i5 processors, as well as the stragglers — all 18 of them — of the desktop versions. The eighth-generation Coffee Lake rollout was more notable, bringing with it six- and eight-core processors after years of plodding along with two or four cores. The new top-of-the-line mobile processor, the Core i9-9980HK, is probably the most welcome. Maybe we’ll soon see the monster portables like the Alienware Area-51m, which use the power-guzzling-for-a-laptop i9-9900K desktop processor, switch over so that they don’t need two power connections. Although the Asus ROG Mothership GZ700GX and its clamshell sibling the ROG G703 both use the i9-9980K and still need to double up on the power, so maybe not.

5 Things You Do Everyday That Make You Vulnerable Online

first_img Free Workshop | August 28: Get Better Engagement and Build Trust With Customers Now 7 min read September 14, 2015 You probably don’t realize it, but some of the simple things you do on the web everyday could be putting you and your computer at risk. In the case of online security, what you don’t know can hurt you.Here are a few common online activities that could potentially make you vulnerable.1. Using public Wi-Fi networksWe all do it, but that doesn’t mean it won’t get us into trouble. Using public Wi-Fi, especially in crowded places like coffee shops and airports, can open you and your computer up to a number of attacks.“Public Wi-Fi is fraught with security problems. Commonly named networks, like AT&T or Starbucks Wi-Fi, are very easily spoofed to capture your logins,” says Seth Rosenblatt, managing editor of the security and privacy news site The Parallax. “Security on public Wi-Fi is generally low,so even if it is a legitimate network, it’s often easier to hack into than private Wi-Fi.”In other words, when you think you’re connecting to “Free WiFi” at your hotel, you could actually be connecting to a fake network designed to capture your passwords and other information when you try to login. In cases where you need to use a public network consider using a Virtual Private Network (VPN), which will encrypt your data and give you the security of your own wireless network over a public connection, to keep your information safe.Related: The Danger of the Bring-Your-Own-Device-to-Work Trend“Even if it’s a Wi-Fi network with a password in a coffee shop, you’re very vulnerable to being hacked on that network,” says Danvers Baillieu, chief operating officer of the VPN service Hide My Ass. “If you’re out and about and you’re not sure whether a Wi-Fi network is real or not, then it’s a good idea to connect to a VPN.”2. Filling out online formsWhile you certainly need to be careful with how you connect to the web so your information isn’t stolen, you need to be equally careful about what information you pass out to third parties.“Obviously if you give information to a website, no technical solution is going to help you,” says Baillieu. “It’s really just a question of being alert when you’re online and not handing over your information to websites you don’t trust or [information] that isn’t necessary for the tasks that you’re trying to carry out.”Many websites collect information about online activity and turn around and sell it without your permission. Before passing out things like your email address, physical address, or phone number make sure you know exactly what a site plans on doing with it. The same goes for logging into third-party sites using your Facebook account. Sure, that single login makes it easier to use a new service, but it can come back to bite you. For example, it’s easy to inadvertently  grant a site permission to share content on your Facebook wall or with your friends.Likewise, you might want to give out your phone number to a company you’re considering renting office space from. First, however, you should make sure the company won’t turn around and sell it to other brokers if the space you’re interested in gets rented out from under you.Be sure you know what you’re agreeing to before you pass along personal information.3. Using the same passwordPasswords can be tough to remember, but it pays to have a different password for every service you use. Particularly when it comes to things like banking information and email, you want to make sure you’ve selected a secure, unique password that would be hard for others to figure out.Why? Security breaches happen. Passwords can get stolen. Think about it like this: If your house key was stolen, you wouldn’t hand over the keys to your car and office as well, right? Having unique passwords ensures that even if someone is able to access one of your accounts, they won’t be able to get into anything else with the same credentials.Consider using a service such as 1Password that will create and remember unique passwords for you. You should also enable two-step authentication on any services that support it. With two-step or two-factor authentication, when you login your phone will receive a text message with a unique code that you need to enter to access your account. Even if a hacker has your password, without that code he or she won’t be able to access your account.4. Sharing ­photos on social mediaFrom snapshots of puppies posted on Facebook, to pictures of epic turkey sandwich lunches blasted out on Twitter, most of us share photos online. What you may not realize, however, is that your phone might be geotagging these pictures, giving others the ability to pinpoint exactly where you were when you took them.Related: Be Sure to Look Around the Office When Searching for Gaps in Your Data SecurityWhile that might not be a huge deal when you’re posting a picture of a sandwich taken at a local cafe, things get a little trickier when you’re sharing a picture of a sandwich taken in your home, inadvertently passing out your home address in the process.An easy solution to this problem is to turn off geotagging on your smartphone. If you’d like to keep the feature, when sharing a photo online be aware of where the photo was taken,and strip the location data off of an image that might have been taken at a sensitive spot.5. Blindly accepting privacy policiesAccepting privacy policies on websites is a necessary evil if you want to use a number of services on the web. Yes, they’re long. Before you sign, however, make sure you actually read through the privacy policy and understand what, exactly, you’re agreeing to.“There are several important areas to check up on,” says Rosenblatt, most importantly “how the company treats your data.” He recommends looking for features that allow you to opt out of sharing your data, as well as features that enable you to delete your data when you delete your account. It’s also important “to look for how the company treats your data, such as the company’s policy for notifying you of changes to the privacy policy, and how they secure your data from threats,” he says. “If you have children who might use the site or service, such as Facebook, it’s important to look up how the company treats data created by your child. It’s also a good idea to familiarize yourself with the company’s abuse policy, in case trolling or worse becomes an issue.”Bottom line: Be smart, pay attention and be careful what you share when you’re online. You’ll be glad you did.Related: Do You Really Need to Change Your Passwords Every Three Months?
