Harsh lessons: Aston Villa must eradicate one part of their game to bounce back – opinion

by koku_jin
This article is part of Football FanCast’s The Chalkboard series, which provides a tactical insight into teams, players, managers, potential signings and more…  Aston Villa’s start to the Premier League season has begun with back-to-back defeats. They opened the campaign with the tough test of the Champions League finalists, Tottenham, where for the best part of an hour they looked a solid side that could have potentially caused the upset of the weekend. John McGinn’s early first-half strike was cancelled out in the 73rd minute by a Tanguy Ndombele thunderbolt before England’s Harry Kane netted a brace inside the final […]

Mason Mount provides the answer to Graeme Souness’ big Chelsea concern – opinion

by koku_jin
It ended up being a disappointing afternoon for Chelsea against Leicester City in what was Frank Lampard’s first game at Stamford Bridge as Blues boss since returning earlier in the summer. Despite a positive start, they could only come away with a 1-1 draw against the Foxes, and were in danger of ending up with nothing at all towards the end. The south-west London side will have felt that they should have capitalised on the pressure they had at the start of the game, but they were unable to put together a convincing lead and were eventually pegged back. Does […]

Norwich 3 Newcastle 1 – Watch official match highlights here

by koku_jin
It ended Norwich 3 Newcastle 1 on Saturday afternoon. Newcastle going down to a defeat against a much weakened Norwich side. A team that is strongly expected to be relegated, yet the Canaries absolutely dominated the Magpies. The first half saw Joelinton put a header just wide from am Isaac Hayden cross but that was about as good as it got until the final seconds. Longstaff setting Shelvey up for a very decent goal just before the final whistle. All a bit meaningless though as Norwich had dominated up to that point and the Pukki hat-trick was the very least […]

Popular Management Theories Decoded

by koku_jin
Different managers have different schools of thought. Frederick W. Taylor’s theory is scientific. Henri Fayol’s theory is administrative. Max Weber’s theory is bureaucratic. Elton Mayo’s theory is based in human relations. Ludwig von Bertalanffy’s theory is systemic. Douglas McGregor’s theory is based on different types of workers. There’s a lot more to managing a team than meets the eye. To properly lead a business, you need to appeal to employees through numerous methods, including emotional and financial incentives. Employees in 2019 tend to enjoy authentic managers who value them as people and professionals, whereas some of the original management theories […]

Privacy researchers devise a noise-exploitation attack that defeats dynamic anonymity

by koku_jin
Privacy researchers in Europe believe they have the first proof that a long-theorised vulnerability in systems designed to protect privacy by aggregating and adding noise to data to mask individual identities is no longer just a theory. The research has implications for the immediate field of differential privacy and beyond — raising wide-ranging questions about how privacy is regulated if anonymization only works until a determined attacker figures out how to reverse the method that’s being used to dynamically fuzz the data. Current EU law doesn’t recognise anonymous data as personal data. Although it does treat pseudoanonymized data as personal […]

Texas Passes Lemonade Stand Law Protecting Young Entrepreneurs

by koku_jin
Texas Governor Greg Abbot signed the “Lemonade stand law” on June 10, 2019, to prevent police or code enforcement officers from shutting down lemonade stands run by kids. The governor called it a “common sense law” on his Twitter feed. It’s now legal for kids to sell lemonade at stands. We had to pass a law because police shut down a kid’s lemonade stand.

What is Team Building

by koku_jin
Team building has been around since the beginning of civilization in one form or another. Officially, corporate team building can be traced back to the 1920s and ’30s with what is now known as the Hawthorne Studies. Researchers studied what happened when a group of employees worked on activities together. The most relevant results, as proven by these studies, were the groups’ sense of identity and feeling of cohesiveness from working together. Often team building is utilized when a corporate team suffers or has conflict. Although team building is an excellent exercise for improving role confusion and poor communication, we do not […]

App Developers Claim Apple’s iOS 13 Location Tracking Changes Are Anti-Competitive

by koku_jin
Apple in iOS 13 made changes to the way location tracking permissions work, and there’s no longer an option for apps to ask to “Always Allow” location tracking. Instead, Apple allows users to select “Allow While Using the App,” “Allow Once,” or “Don’t Allow,” which some app creators have taken offense to. The leaders of seven companies that make apps for iOS devices banded together to write an email to Apple CEO Tim Cook to speak out about the changes, with the details shared by The Information. There’s no longer an “Always Allow” option on privacy popups in iOS 13 […]
