Saints Bounty Program Anthony Hargrove Denies Its His Voice

Former New Orleans defensive end Anthony Hargrove says it’s not his voice saying ”Give me the money” in a video used by the NFL as evidence in its investigation of the Saints’ bounty program.A day after Hargrove and three of his ex-teammates made appeals of their suspensions at NFL headquarters, he returned to the sidewalk outside the league offices Tuesday for an informal news conference. As curious passers-by huddled around, Hargrove read a 13-minute statement, making references to Bill Clinton and the Mona Lisa and often sounding like a colorful defense attorney giving a closing argument.”I’ve never offered nor received money to intentionally hurt a player,” Hargrove said.This week, the NFL showed reporters a clip from the 2010 NFC championship game in which Hargrove purportedly made the ”money” comment about injuring then-Vikings quarterback Brett Favre. Hargrove insisted it was someone else uttering those words, though he said he didn’t know who.Hargrove was flagged and subsequently fined $5,000 for a flagrant hit on Favre, who returned to the game.”This happens,” Hargrove said, looking into the TV cameras. ”Brett, I’m truly sorry.”Hargrove, now with Green Bay, has been suspended for eight games.NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said: ”We stand by the findings of our investigation.”On Monday, Hargrove, Will Smith, Scott Fujita and Jonathan Vilma attended appeals hearings with Commissioner Roger Goodell. After the sessions, the NFL presented the same evidence it showed the players to reporters. The Hargrove clip was part of that. read more

Former Premier Hon Michael Misick releases statement on recent gun crimes

first_img Related Items: Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, TCI, October 24, 2016 – Sunday morning (Oct. 23, 2016), as former Premier and a citizen of the Turks and Caicos Islands, I am shaken by the reports of three separate gun crimes that has broken the peace of the morning.  My request for the removal of the Commissioner of Police James Smith is now everyone’s issue s it is clear that he lacks the ability to bring an abatement in crime and his tenure here beyond this point will not be conducive to the safe future of our country.The fact that there were three incidents, these three incidents involving  firearms, two involving reported aggravated assaults on civilians where indeed a brave young lady was shot and one involving a brazen attack on uniformed police officers indicate that criminals are acting with little or no regard for the law.The Brit-knows-best mentality towards policing in this island nation is failing and we as locals are left to pay the price.  I challenge the Commissioner to produce statistics, reports or any tangible evidence that indicates that he, James Smith, has made a positive impact on crime in the TCI.  The fact of the matter is that the crime situation under the current commissioner has progressively deteriorated and urgent and decisive action is now required to save the Turks and Caicos Islands.I again lay out an intern plan that I would like to see implemented immediately.  And one that I will certainly pursue once I am elected.The establishment of a National Guard to protect our borders leaving police to do police work.The Transfer of all police matters to the local government and the establishment of police authority headed by a Local Commissioner of police.Higher pay and better working conditions for the police.  Including more modern crime fighting equipment.Regularize persons that were born and went through the system here so that they are able to assimilate into the community by finding work, studying at the Community College and abroad thus allowing them to make a positive contribution to our country.Offer a gun amnesty in order to get illegal guns off our streets.This is just a short list of measures that, if taken, will make a big difference and go a long way in crime prevention and keeping our Country safe.  Our nation remains Beautiful by Nature, so we must not allow crime to tarnish our pristine image.  Today we must all pray that all threats to our peace and tranquility are addressed and adequately dealt with to ensure a safe future.  Finally may the Good Lord bless you all and may God bless the Turks and Caicos Islands.last_img read more

State of OpenJDK Past Present and Future with Oracle

first_imgThe Free and Open source Software Developers’ European Meeting (FOSDEM) is no longer the home of OpenJDK committers and other regular contributors. Traditionally the OpenJDK community used to meet at FOSDEM every February in Brussels, but since the OpenJDK team is now shipping a release every six months they agreed that it was time to meet more frequently. To fill this need the team decided to hold a Committer’s workshop on the first two days of August at Oracle’s campus in Santa Clara, California, USA. Mark Reinhold, the Chief Architect of the Java Platform Group at Oracle was the conductor of the orchestra here. He shed some light on the recent developments to the OpenJDK ecosystem and shared some future plans in yesterday’s sessions. OpenJDK’s new release model is a blessing in disguise It’s probably old news for developers who have been tracking the Java release cycle for some time now, but nonetheless, it’s very important for how things are going to change for OpenJDK. 2018 marked a new dawn for the Java platform. After endless discussions in the community about the new release being a repeat telecast of the same old Java 9 movie—a historic feature driven update to the platform with no head or tail on the release date—Mark put all the rumors to bed. He suggested to replace this feature driven update to a strict, time-based model with a new feature release every six months, update releases every quarter, and a long-term support release every three years. Image Source: OpenJDK Community Update For example, JDK 10 which was a new feature release was made available in March this year. The next release in six months would be JDK 11, which automatically becomes a candidate for a Long term support which would last till 2021, i.e three years as mentioned above. The biggest advantage of this release schedule is the simplified release process; takes off the pressure of adhering to strict deadlines from the developers. It also means that every feature would have to be completed before it makes the final cut, this way there are no multiple minor versions of the same release which confuses the users and developers alike. To what extent will Oracle contribute to the OpenJDK community? In the Committer’s workshop Mark Reinhold cleared some questions about Oracle’s contribution to the OpenJDK ecosystem. He mentioned that Oracle engineers would be leading and be contributing only to the current feature releases and first two updates on the quarterly release. The non-Oracle folks can have the opportunity of taking the ownership of long-term release projects. This decision is taken mainly due to the fact that Oracle developers and engineers can focus on the future releases and their functionalities rather than working on support for long-term releases. An important clause which was discussed during this session was Oracle’s smooth transition of leadership whenever the engineers feel that they need to dial down their contribution to a particular release line they would hand over the leadership of that project with relative ease. Oracle finally embraces the Open Source Culture Now the biggest announcement that came in this workshop was Oracle open sourcing the elements of it proprietary JDK. Now before discussing this, it is important for us to understand what exactly is the difference between OpenJDK and Oracle’s proprietary JDK. Sun Microsystems, who originally created Java, announced in the JavaOne conference of 2006, that Java is going to be open sourced. OpenJDK was a result of a free implementation of the Standard Edition (SE) of the Java Platform. When Oracle bought Sun in 2009, they created their own proprietary version of the JDK which catered to the enterprise users who valued stability; and unlike OpenJDK, it has releases planned every three years. Now coming back to the point of open sourcing Oracle’s proprietary JDK, for a long time developers questioned Oracle’s intentions on how they plan to shape the future of Java, especially after their feud with Google over Android that began back in 2010. The open source community felt largely alienated from Oracle as they believed that Oracle was wrong in going after an open source friendly company like Google. Fast forward to 2018 and in this day and age, companies are embracing more and more open source technologies. Oracle has finally decided to open source their JDK which includes elements like Java flight recorder, Java Mission Control, and ZGC which is Oracle’s very own garbage collector. There will still be an Oracle JDK for the purposes of offering commercial support, but it will have the same functionalities as OpenJDK. Finally, Oracle is going to release all the builds for the current releases under the GPL license for developers who prefer non-commercial licensing.
