Hamburg celebrates first Meistertitel

utdvdhvnn
The Hall O2 was full, and over 13,000 people were waiting for the first title Champion of Germany. This finally happened after the final whistle in the game against Gummersbach, which the home won with 35:30, when it became clear that matematically HSV is the new champion. It was the first title in the history of the team, and after years of investments in the club, finally HSV managed to leave Kiel, RNL and the others behind them. Rudolph and Schwalb were delighted with the success, and so were all the players.They played a magnificent season, losing only twice, in the first round to Goppingen, and few rounds ago to THW Kiel, but which was rather unimportant game. A great deal of the title goes to the splendid work of…

dtywujrcy
Two Macedonian national team players, Ace Jonovski (34) and Velko Markoski (28), which have been one of the “trademarks” in the defence part of both Metalurg and Macedonian National team, have signed new contracts with Metalurg. The Macedonian champion believes in the “pillars” of their defence so far, so in front of Darko Stanic for the next two years will stand these players – for many things part of the great successes of the team led by Lino Cervar. Jonovski and Markoski joined the club from “Avtokomanda” in 2010. ace jonovskiDarko StanicLino Cervarmetalurgrakometvelko markoski ← Previous Story Women’s EHF CL 2014/2015: Byasen, Podravka and Leipzig to fight for the Preliminary Round!

About 70 per cent of women do not have pension

eksxhitmg
SEVEN OUT OF 10 women in Ireland do not own their own personal, company or work pension, a new survey has revealed.According to research carried out by Standard Life with 1,000 women across the country, the trend for female pension ownership is down year-on-year (from 42 per cent to 30 per cent).Just 30 per cent of respondents said they owned a pension. That can be compared to the corresponding male figure of 51 per cent.The top reason cited for not contributing to a private pension is because they cannot afford to in the current environment.“I do worry about women when I see these results,” said Aileen Power, head of corporate communications, at the firm. “Women want independence and their own money in retirement if at all possible.  But you can’t…

But Martin responded: “The bonus culture is back, is basically what you’re saying and it’s alive and well in Irish Water.” THE TAOISEACH HAS been told that “the bonus culture is back” and “alive and well” in Irish Water by the Fianna Fáil leader Micheal Martin.Speaking at Leaders’ Questions in the Dail this afternoon, Martin raised the issue of bonuses being paid to staff at Irish Water, the new State utility that has been the subject of controversy in recent weeks, and asked Enda Kenny why the government approved the bonuses.Kenny described the payments as “performance pay” and said that they would be paid on the basis of staff in Irish Water “achieving a particular set of criteria and targets”.He said he has asked the Minister for Environment “in the…

Starting next year all European phones will charge through microUSB

bzqtuqakw
Ever had your smartphone run out of juice while at a friend’s house, only to be prevented from using his charger because of the difference between the proprietary charging standards utilized by your two phones? Europe’s finally doing something about that annoyance: starting next year, every new cellphone in Europe will have to be able to charge via micro-USB.The decision comes via two European electronics standardization bodies who have published specs detailing how data-enabled phones made by different manufacturers really should all be using the same micro-USB charger standard. AdChoices广告Believe it or not, given how these companies seem to love their proprietary charges, this was actually a voluntary deal, backed by a host of big names such as Apple, Nokia, Qualcomm, RIM, LG and Samsung.

Verizon dropped 10K 911 calls during January blizzard says FCC

smgzehobt
Verizon likes to bill itself as having the best network in the US (and that’s generally accepted to be true), but it looks like even they have problems when times get tough. According to a Bloomberg report, the FCC has posted a letter to Verizon Wireless saying that the carrier dropped as many as 10,000 calls to 911 during the January 26th blizzard in the Washington, DC area.That would be a serious enough problem on its own, but the FCC is concerned that this could be happening during other emergencies across the country and affecting many more of Verizon’s 90+ million subscribers.The Federal Communications Commission has sent a letter to Verizon asking them to investigate the incident and presumedly get to the bottom on the issue. The FCC described the…

Xiaomi Phone is a 15GHz dualcore Android phone for 310

ihardafuq
When Xiaomi first revealed its M1 concept phone, it already looked like a very capable device. Sporting the MIUI Android ROM and a speedy 1.2GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, its estimated street price was expected to be somewhere in the range of $250 — a bargain for the outright purchase of a phone with that kind of hardware. Now the official reveal has happened, and the Xiaomi Phone is even better than expected.Like the HP TouchPad, the production Xiaomi Phone is being bumped from the original 1.2GHz to a 1.5GHz Snapdragon (a first in China). Along with its beefy SOC, the phone also features Adreno 220 graphics, 1GB of RAM, 4GB of ROM, 480×854 touchscreen display, 8MP rear-facing camera, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and GSM and CDMA support with a dual-antenna…

Anonymous says Facebook attack video is fake

asirmagrm
SOPA and PIPA are temporarily shelved, but internet freedom is far from secure. Though most people prefer to protest draconian legislation by signing petitions, writing congressmen, and voting for SOPA opponents, Anonymous does things a little bit differently. A video claiming to be from the “hacktivists” calls on followers to participate in an attack on Facebook. The only problem, though, is that Anonymous’ Twitter account has dismissed the video as a fake.In the video, someone posing as the group doesn’t shy away from dramatic rhetoric. It announces the arrival of “the first cyber war” and invites everyone to help it to bring down Facebook. Though Facebook has over 60,000 servers, the video says that, with enough help, its ship can be sunk.The group’s Twitter account, @anonops, tweeted that “again we…

Video of Wii U Majoras Mask leaks

utdvdhvnn
While the gaming world awaits Nintendo‘s E3 2012 keynote, a video of an unannounced Wii U title has shown up on the web: The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask.Until we see the video show up on a big screen in front of a huge E3 audience, we can’t be sure that it’s real, but at the very least it’s a convincing fake. This certainly wouldn’t be the first time Nintendo has reached into their back catalog and created a full, modern remake. The Gamecube  games saw a release on the Nintendo Wii, complete with motion controls, and Zelda 64 showed up on the company’s 3DS handheld. As with the 3DS title, the supposedly leaked video shows a substantial visual upgrade from anything possible on the Nintendo 64. If you’re a…
