Favourites progress into fourth round of League Cup (Fourth round draw)

first_imgMarcus Rashford scored twice as holders Manchester United brushed aside second-tier Burton Albion 4-1 at Old Trafford to reach the fourth round of the League Cup on Wednesday.The 19-year-old England striker produced two lethal finishes in the opening 20 minutes and Jesse Lingard killed the tie off before halftime with a deflected effort.Anthony Martial got in on the act after the break before Lloyd Dyer grabbed a stoppage-time consolation for Burton.Manchester City, Chelsea and Arsenal also progressed, as did Everton who ended a run of four consecutive defeats with a welcome 3-0 home victory against second-tier Sunderland.United have now scored 17 goals in five home matches this season in all competitions, although Burton became the first of those visiting sides to score at Old Trafford.It was only a minor irritation as United produced a vibrant display with Rashford, leading the line instead of rested Romelu Lukaku, in deadly form as the Reds eased through to a fourth-round trip to Swansea City.United made nine changes from the side that started against Everton on Sunday but still fielded a strong lineup that underlined Jose Mourinho’s attacking options.“Anthony Martial was good, Juan Mata was good, Jesse Lingard was good. The team collectively enjoyed the game,” Mourinho, aiming for a fifth League Cup triumph, said.Rashford dinked in United’s opener after four minutes and smashed home his second after a sweet turn in the 17th minute.Lingard made it 3-0 before halftime with a wickedly-deflected shot and Martial struck on the hour.Man City, level with United at the top of the Premier League, were involved in the night’s one all-Premier League tie, edging out West Bromwich Albion 2-1 at the Hawthorns.Leroy Sane gave City a third-minute lead and struck again in the 77th minute shortly after Claudio Yacob had levelled for the home side. West Brom hit the woodwork in stoppage time.Eden Hazard made his first start of the season for Chelsea after recovering from an ankle injury and played the full 90 minutes in a 5-1 defeat of second-tier Nottingham Forest.Michy Batshuayi stole the spotlight though with a hat-trick while Kenedy and Charly Musonda were also on target.Arsenal beat third-tier Doncaster Rovers 1-0 at The Emirates with Theo Walcott’s first-half goal separating the sides.Midfielder Jack Wilshere played a full 90 minutes for Arsenal for the first time in three years while Alexis Sanchez started and set up Walcott’s winner.“I wanted to leave him on to give him 90 minutes and overall I think it was an ideal game for him to gain confidence and fitness,” Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said.Doncaster, managed by Darren Ferguson, son of Wenger’s old adversary Alex, hit the bar late on through Matty Blair.“That was hard work, credit to Doncaster, they kept going,” Wenger said. “We started well in the first 35 minutes but we decreased slowly.”Wednesday resultsManchester United – Burton Albion (II) 4-1 (halftime: 3-0)West Bromwich Albion – Manchester City 1-2 (halftime: 0-1)Arsenal – Doncaster Rovers (III) 1-0 (halftime: 1-0)Chelsea – Nottingham Forest (II) 5-1 (halftime: 3-0)Everton – Sunderland (II) 3-0 (halftime: 1-0) Fourth Round draw Tottenham Hotspur v West Ham UnitedBristol City (II) v Crystal PalaceSwansea City v Manchester UnitedArsenal v Norwich City (II)Chelsea v EvertonManchester City v Wolverhampton Wanderers (II)Leicester City v Leeds United (II)Bournemouth v Middlesbrough (II)last_img read more

Liverpool midfielder full of praise for team effort after Man City victory

first_img1 James Milner feels there is even more to come from Liverpool after their stunning victory at Manchester City.Jurgen Klopp’s rampant Reds knocked City off the top of the Barclays Premier League with a comprehensive 4-1 win at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday.Most of the damage was done in a whirlwind opening period as Liverpool raced into a 3-0 lead after forcing an Eliaquim Mangala own goal and with further strikes from Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino.It was some statement by the Merseysiders as momentum continues to build under new boss Klopp while City were left with plenty of questions to answer.Midfielder Milner, who left City for Anfield in the summer, said: “I thought we were outstanding.“We pressed them all over the field, created a few chances and I thought we could have had a few more.“In the second half we didn’t want to keep it tight – we wanted to keep doing what we were doing and get on the front foot. We wanted to be in their faces.“We didn’t do it as effectively in the first half, and they changed their formation a bit, but I still thought we put in a pretty good second half.“There are always areas we can improve. If you look at the teams we have played away from home and the results we have got, it has been pretty solid, but obviously the home form we can improve.“We know that is where we need to do better and we are more than capable of that. If we can get the home form right we won’t be too far away.”Liverpool were beaten at Anfield by Crystal Palace on their last outing but on this occasion they ravaged the title favourites with a high-energy display from the outset.The opener came after seven minutes as Coutinho robbed Bacary Sagna and Mangala turned Firmino’s cross into his own net. More poor defending allowed Liverpool’s Brazilian duo to quickly increase the lead and Firmino was close to adding two more.City’s top striker Sergio Aguero marked his return after seven games out injured with a fine goal to reduce the arrears but Martin Skrtel lashed in a shot nine minutes from time.Milner, 29, produced one of his best performances for Liverpool on a day of mixed emotions back at the club where he won four trophies.He said: “It was strange coming back to place where I was for five years and had a lot of good times, but as soon as you step on the field it is business time.“It is important we keep this going now and it is a great start to a period where we have a lot of games. Hopefully we can keep keep the confidence going.” Jurgen Klopp’s rampant Reds knocked City off the top of the Premier League with a comprehensive 4-1 win last_img read more

The Rock Hard Times: the Wikipedia of Music?

first_imgTags:#music#Product Reviews#web 4 Keys to a Kid-Safe App sarah perez 12 Unique Gifts for the Hard-to-Shop-for People… Related Posts center_img 5 Outdoor Activities for Beating Office Burnout The Rock Hard Times is a music search engine and database where you can perform searches or browse by artists, genres, places (countries), and labels. Each page on the site is filled with content like album listings, photos, videos, and links to lyrics, tabs, fansites, shopping sites, and more.  The Rock Hard Times’ creator, Mime Cuvalo, envisioned the site as an IMDB of music, but really the site is more of a mashup between IMDB and Wikipedia, since every page of TRHT is editable by anyone.You may be thinking that there are plenty of music search engines and portals already out there, so why do we need another one? Cuvalo acknowledges this, saying,  “Yes, I know about discogs.com, last.fm, musicbrainz.org, and all of the others…my reason for doing this website is that I felt there wasn’t a site like it available – that there was a need for it. Something that would pull everything on a particular artist together into a neat, simple package. Something that would be editable by the people but in a more structured way than how Wikipedia does it.”You could also include music sites like MusicPortl and FoxyTunes Planet to that list of similar sites as well. However, where TRHT is different is in the fact that all the content housed there is editable. You can login to gain access to add, remove, and edit links, photos, videos, and all the other information a page displays. TRHT also stands out for the amount of info it contains. In addition to the usual content you could find anywhere, an artist’s page may also include tour information, details on past members of the group, birthdates and birthplaces, links to previous labels they recorded under, links to fansites, streams of songs or entire concerts, links to reviews, articles, interviews, and more. While a lot of the content is housed off-site, like lyrics (apparently illegal?), an artist’s page is a great jumping-off point for finding all kinds of information about them, their band, and their music. 9 Books That Make Perfect Gifts for Industry Ex…last_img read more

SaaS: Google Apps Takes on Business

first_imgGoogle has had some false starts in trying to mold its software into something that would be attractive to businesses, especially large businesses. But, they keep trying…Google has recently done a retake and revamp of its App Engine product, trying to make it more appealing to businesses. App Engine offers users the ability to build and host web applications on Google’s infrastructure. It contains some compelling features:full support for common web technologies and dnamic web applicationspersistent storage with queries, sorting and transactionsautomatic scaling and load balancingAPIs for authenticating users and sending email using Google Accountsa local development environment that simulates Google App Enginescheduled tasks for triggering events at specified times and regular intervalsOriginally Google supported only applications that are written in the Python language. In the most recent Google App upgrade, they now also support the Java language.One limitation though is that each Google App must run in the protected sandbox area provided by Google. With that requirement comes the limitation that the application can’t write directly to a file on the operating system — instead all presistent data must be saved via the App Engine datastore.In the recent upgrade, Google also included the Google Secure Data Connector. The Data connector will allow App Engine applications to securely connect into other applications like CRM and business analytics. Connectors are available for software from vendors like Apirio, Cast Iron Systems, IBM, Oracle and Panorama. For example, an App Engine application could communicate and exchange data with Oracle Siebel CRM.last_img read more

Text Editing Tips And Tricks Roundup

first_img (il)From our sponsors: Text Editing Tips And Tricks Roundup HomeWeb DesignText Editing Tips And Tricks Roundup Text Editing Tips And Tricks Roundup Text Editing Tips And Tricks Roundup Rachel Andrew 2018-07-23T13:30:35+02:00 2018-07-23T12:05:20+00:00We asked the Smashing Community for their favorite text editing tricks, shortcuts, and features that save them time. Here’s a roundup of what we’ve found quite useful along with a couple of other suggestions you may find handy.Favourite Keyboard ShortcutsMany of you have favorite keyboard shortcuts. Some of these will be editor or operating system specific, although in many cases you’ll be able to find a similar shortcut with the tools you are using. I’ve rounded up a few from the community below.Ste Grainer shared a tip about the movement and selection shortcuts:The basic movement/selection shortcuts that many don’t know about:Hold Cmd + Arrow Key to move to the beginning/end of a line or top/bottom of a document.Hold Opt + Arrow Key to move word to word horizontally and block to block vertically.Shift to select while doing those.From Jo Frank:Select all occurences of current selection (Ctrl + SHIFT + L in VSCode) and duplicate line/selection which I set up as Ctrl + D.Loris Gillet shared a few favorite shortcuts for hopping around or deleting text:⌥ + forward/back arrows allows to jump to the next word instead of the next letter⌥ + up/down arrows allows to jump to the beginning/end of the paragraph⌥ + Backspace deletes the whole word instead of letters by letters.Many of the suggested tips came from web developers — tips for the editors they used most frequently. We also received suggestions for Android Studio from Maher Nabeel:In Android Studio:Ctrl + D — Duplicate lineCtrl + Y — Delete lineCtrl + W — Select blockCtrl + O — Override methodsCtrl + ALT + L — Reformat codeGetting workflow just right ain’t an easy task. So are proper estimates. Or alignment among different departments. That’s why we’ve set up “this-is-how-I-work”-sessions — with smart cookies sharing what works well for them. A part of the Smashing Membership, of course. Explore features →Editor Shortcut CheatsheetsAs we can see from the tips already posted, learning the keyboard shortcuts for your editor saves a lot of time. It is always worth taking a look at what is available for your editor, as learning a few of these shortcuts can save a lot of typing over the course of a day writing code.On Twitter, Tobin Saunders recommended the Atom Editor Cheat Sheet which is a detailed list of shortcuts for Atom. I also took a look at what was available for other frequently used editors.Visual Studio CodeThe VS Code website has a number of downloadable cheatsheets in PDF format, if you find it useful to keep a cheatsheet printed out on your desk.WindowsMacLinuxJoel Reis noted that if you are switching to VS Code from Sublime Text, Atom, Vim or Visual Studio, then you can download the keymap extensions. This means that you can maintain the keyboard shortcuts from your previous editor. This tip was also noted on Smashing Magazine earlier this year when Burke Holland shared with us some of the things that you might be surprised to find that VS Code can do, in his article “Visual Studio Code Can Do That?”Sublime TextA good selection of Sublime Text 3 shortcuts for Windows, Mac, and Linux can be found here.We also have an article here on Smashing Magazine in which Jai Panda shares some of his favorite Sublime Text Tips and Tricks.Customizing Your EnvironmentOur keyboards and default computer settings are designed more for typing text than typing code. Some commenters have made changes to their defaults in order to make it faster to type the things they most often need to type.Alex Semenikhine made this suggestion:I minimize the number of times I have to hold Shift and press a button. If I make brackets (( )) far more often than I use 9 and 0, I customize the keyboard to reflect that, my 9 is ( and Shift + 9 is 9, etc.Paul van den Tool sets his ‘Key Repeat’ and ‘Delay Until Repeat’ to their highest setting in order that his cursor just “flies across the screen when using the arrows.”Jarón Barends told us how he, “created Alt + ; as a shortcut to insert a semicolon at the end of a current line.”Using EmmetA number of people mentioned the text expansion system of Emmet. If you hand-code a lot of HTML and CSS then Emmet can save you a great deal of typing time. When writing HTML, Emmet abbreviations will be familiar to anyone who understands CSS. For example, if you want to create an unordered list inside a div element, you could use the following:div>ul>liWhich would then turn into: read more
