The reason Jose Mourinho wont manage Real Madrid

first_imgA report from Marca confirms that the Real Madrid board of directors is not even considering the option of bringing Jose Mourinho back.Right after Jose Mourinho was sacked from Manchester United, the Spanish press started speculating on the Portuguese manager’s possible return to Real Madrid.There have been debates about this topic in the last couple of days, talking about Santiago Solari having pressure to improve and win the FIFA Club World Cup or Mourinho could take over immediately.However, an interesting report from Marca just surfaced where they confirm that the board of directors is actually not considering the option sooner or later.Real Madrid doesn’t think that bringing Jose Mourinho back to the club is the best idea for a number of reasons, the most important is that Solari is the club’s manager right now and they completely trust him to take the squad to a successful season.But other reasons include the manner in which the Portuguese manager left a few years back, with the dressing room on fire and half the players rooting for his dismissal.Jose Mourinho developed a poor relationship with some of the most important players in the squad during the final years and this affected the club’s performances inside the pitch.The club considers that taking the manager back right now or even later, would mean going back and they are not interested in that at the moment.harry maguire, manchester UnitedMaguire says United need to build on today’s win George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Harry Maguire wants his United teammates to build on the victory over Leicester City.During the summer, Harry Maguire was referred to as the ultimate…But perhaps the biggest reason they are not looking to sign Jose Mourinho back from Real Madrid, is the recent bad results that the manager has been piling up on his resume.Granted, he did win titles in both of the clubs where he managed during his first seasons but many of the same patterns from his final year at Los Blancos have emerged in England.The board of directors actually has a great friendship with the manager, they ask him for advice on a regular basis but they consider that his time as a manager for Real Madrid is long gone.🗣️@RobertoGomezOC en #LaTribu: “Sergio Ramos lo único que tiene que hacer es jugar al fútbol, no elegir entrenadores”.🤔¿Mourinho de vuelta al Real Madrid?📻 https://t.co/ilgsizI4uT pic.twitter.com/2BshSudPsu— Radio MARCA (@RadioMARCA) December 19, 2018last_img read more

Introducing Alpha Support for Volume Snapshotting in Kubernetes 112

first_imgKubernetes v1.12 now offers alpha support for volume snapshotting. This will allow users to create or delete volume snapshots, and natively create new volumes from a snapshot using the Kubernetes API. A snapshot represents a copy of a volume at that particular instant of time. This snapshot can be used to provision a new volume that can be pre-populated with the snapshot data or to restore the existing volume to a previous state. Importance of adding Snapshots to Kubernetes The main goal of the Kubernetes team is to create an abstraction layer between distributed systems applications and underlying clusters. The layer will ensure that application deployment requires no “cluster specific” knowledge. Snapshot operations are a critical functionality for many stateful workloads. For instance, a database administrator may want to snapshot a database volume before starting a database operation. By providing a standard way to trigger snapshot operations in the Kubernetes API, users don’t have to manually execute storage system specific operations around the Kubernetes API. They can instead incorporate snapshot operations in a cluster agnostic way into their tooling and policy assured that it will work against arbitrary Kubernetes clusters regardless of the underlying storage. These snapshot primitives help to develop advanced, enterprise-grade, storage administration features for Kubernetes which includes data protection, data replication, and data migration. 3 new API objects introduced by Kubernetes Volume Snapshots: #1 VolumeSnapshot The creation and deletion of this object depicts if a user wants to create or delete a cluster resource (a snapshot). It is used to request the creation of a snapshot for a specified volume. It gives the user information about snapshot operations like the timestamp at which the snapshot was taken and whether the snapshot is ready to use. #2 VolumeSnapshotContent This object is created by the CSI volume driver once a snapshot has been successfully created. It contains information about the snapshot including its ID. This object represents a provisioned resource on the cluster (a snapshot). Once a snapshot is created, the VolumeSnapshotContent object binds to the VolumeSnapshot– with a one to one mapping- for which it was created. #3 VolumeSnapshotClass This object created by cluster administrators describes how snapshots should be created. It includes the driver information, how to access the snapshot, etc. These Snapshot objects are defined as CustomResourceDefinitions (CRDs).  End users need to verify if a CSI driver that supports snapshots is deployed on their Kubernetes cluster. CSI Drivers that support snapshots will automatically install the required CRDs. Limitations of the alpha implementation of snapshots The alpha implementation does not support reverting an existing volume to an earlier state represented by a snapshot It does not support “in-place restore” of an existing PersistentVolumeClaim from a snapshot. Users can provision a new volume from a snapshot. However, updating an existing PVC to a new volume and reverting it back to an earlier state is not allowed. No snapshot consistency guarantees given beyond any of those provided by storage system An example of creating new snapshots and importing existing snapshots is explained well on the Kubernetes Blog. Head over to  the team’s Concepts page or Github to find more official documentation of the snapshot feature.

Biometric Information Privacy Act It is now illegal for Amazon Facebook or

first_imgOn 25th January, the Illinois Supreme Court passed a unanimous ruling which states that, when companies collect biometric data like fingerprints or face prints without informed opt-in consent, they can be sued. This can be done even without proof of concrete injuries- like identity fraud or physical harm. The law known as the Biometric Information Privacy Act, requires that companies explicitly inform a person about what biometric data they will collect, and also how the data will be stored and utilized by the company. The data includes information like fingerprints, facial scans, iris scans, or other biological information. Next, the company has to obtain prior consent from that person before capturing these details. A point to be noted here is that, while other states only allow attorneys general to sue companies, the Illinois BIPA law gives individuals the right to sue companies. Afterwhich, they can collect damages of $1,000 (the amount increases to $5,000, if the court finds a company deliberately or recklessly flouted the law). Six Flags v Rosenbach According to FastCompany, the decision was taken in a landmark lawsuit against the theme park Six Flags, who recorded the thumbprint of a 14-year-old boy without notice or written consent, while issuing him a season pass in 2014. Six Flags did not notify the boy or his mother, Stacy Rosenbach, about obtaining his fingerprints. She sued Six Flags for violation of the BIPA law and in its defense, Six Flags made the case that because Rosenbach couldn’t demonstrate that taking his fingerprints had done any “harm” to the boy (example: no data breach or security problem), the company wasn’t liable for damages. According to the Electronic Frontier foundation, “EFF, along with ACLU, CDT, the Chicago Alliance Against Sexual Exploitation, PIRG, and Lucy Parsons Labs, filed an amicus curiae brief urging the Illinois Supreme Court to adopt a robust interpretation of BIPA. The Illinois Supreme Court agreed with us and soundly rejected the defendants’ argument that BIPA required a person to show an injury beyond loss of statutory privacy rights”.  On Friday the state’s Supreme Court ruled that Six Flags had, indeed, violated the law and would need to pay the boy damages, in spite of no “harm” shown. The ruling comes as an example in Illinois that if a company violates a citizen’s privacy without any prior notice or consent and the citizen sues, the plaintiff doesn’t need to demonstrate an additional harm for the law to protect the user. BIPA sets an example for similar lawsuits The Six Flags ruling builds a stronger case for other ongoing lawsuits, including one against Facebook in which consumers claimed that Facebook violated a state privacy law by using facial recognition technology on their uploaded photographs without their consent. Facebook is fighting back by saying consumers should have to show that the lawbreaking practice caused ‘additional harm’ beyond a mere violation. Google also faced a similar lawsuit on Thursday, where two Illinois residents allege that the company “failed to obtain consent from anyone when it introduced its facial recognition technology.” Just last month, Google won the dismissal of a lawsuit it has been facing since 2016 for allegedly scanning and saving the biometric data of a woman, captured unwillingly in 11 photos taken on Android by a Google Photos user. As per Bloomberg, the lawsuit was dismissed by a judge in Chicago, who found that the plaintiff didn’t suffer “concrete injuries”. Senior staff counsel Rebecca Glenberg of the ACLU of Illinois, said in a statement that  “Your biometric information belongs to you and should not be left to corporate interests who want to collect detailed information about you for advertising and other commercial purposes.” What does this mean to the tech industry? According to Illinois.org, while facial recognition technology and biometric does have the potential to simplify life of citizens, the BIPA may affect technological innovation overall. The litigation may have the potential to drive up costs- on both ends of the spectrum. Businesses like Apple, who have demonstrated the importance of biometric technology, will have to take extra precautions to comply with the BIPA. In case the law is violated, there is the expense of class-action lawyers and litigants. They may simply decide against hiring people in Illinois because of the expense and hassle. It would be interesting to see companies coming up with a kind of framework that would safeguard them against violation of the BIPA as well as put citizens at rest about the way their data is handled/used. You can head over to Electronic Frontier Foundation’s official post for more insights on this news.

IATA says Boeing jet wont return before August

first_imgIATA says Boeing jet won’t return before August GENEVA — The Boeing 737 Max jet that was grounded after two deadly crashes will not fly before mid-August at the earliest, the global airline trade group said Wednesday.The spokesman for the International Air Transport Association, Anthony Concil, said the group estimates the planes will remain grounded for at least another 10-12 weeks, though regulators like the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration will have final say.The plane was grounded in mid-March after the crash of an Ethiopian Airlines Max. A Lion Air Max crashed in October off the Indonesian coast. In all, 346 people died.Concil said IATA’s estimate is based on comments from U.S. carriers that they wouldn’t be scheduling commercial flights of the planes through August, and that the FAA hasn’t yet provided a timeline on decisions that could allow the planes to resume service.Concil spoke from Seoul, where IATA is preparing its annual meeting. IATA has 290 members, representing 82% of world commercial cargo and passenger traffic.More news:  Windstar celebrates record-breaking bookings in JulyBoeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg, meanwhile, declined on Wednesday to give a timetable.Speaking at an investor conference in New York, he said he hopes all regulators will clear the plane for flying when the FAA does, “but there may be some international authorities that operate on a different schedule.”Boeing is working on changes to flight-control software and additional pilot training but has not submitted a formal application yet to the FAA.

Michigan House supports landmark civil asset forfeiture reform package

first_img The Michigan House today gave its approval to a bipartisan package of bills reforming the state’s civil asset forfeiture policies, said state Rep. Brandt Iden.Current Michigan law allows law enforcement agencies to seize property from an individual or individuals who are suspected of a crime, even if there isn’t enough evidence to charge them.Rep. Iden, who sponsored House Bill 4507, said the reforms will bring about much needed transparency while protecting residents from sometimes unreasonable seizures of their property.“While law enforcement can use civil asset forfeiture as a legitimate tool to fight crime, we need to do more to protect residents in Michigan,” said Rep. Iden, R-Oshtemo. “By adding more transparency to this process, we can allow law enforcement to continue to do their job to keep us safe while also ensuring residents have their property rights respected.”HB 4507 is part of the package that creates the Uniform Forfeiture Reporting act, which will require law enforcement agencies to report the total worth of property seized in forfeitures and the crimes to which the seized properties are connected.“The new reporting act will still allow law enforcement agencies to protect us from criminals while holding them accountable and protecting the property rights of innocent individuals,” Rep. Iden said.The package of bills, HBs 4499, 4500 and 4503-4508, is part of the House Republican Action Plan, and now goes to the Senate for their consideration.### 04Jun Michigan House supports landmark civil asset forfeiture reform package Categories: Iden Newslast_img read more
