On the day when the Philadelphia Eagles were supposed to be there to commemorate winning the Super Bowl — a visit that was canceled by President Donald Trump and had the White House accusing players who weren’t planning on attending of abandoning their fans — Curry and James were among those speaking out at the NBA Finals in support of the Eagles.“I’m not surprised. It’s typical of him,” James, the Cleveland star, said Tuesday of Trump’s decision to cancel. “I know no matter who wins this series, no one wants the invite anyway. So it won’t be Golden State or Cleveland going.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkSPORTSTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crownOn the eve of Game 3 of the Warriors-Cavaliers series, politics dominated the conversation.Curry raised Trump’s ire last year when he said he wouldn’t go to the White House, prompting the President to disinvite him and the champion Golden State Warriors.

No Eagles players kneeled during the anthem last season.“Instead the decision was made to lie, and paint the picture that these players are anti-America, anti-flag and anti-military,” the Eagles’ Malcolm Jenkins wrote in a statement posted to social media Tuesday .The WNBA champion Minnesota Lynx were not invited to the White House to celebrate their most recent title, something James called “laughable.” Instead, the Lynx will spend Wednesday giving away new sneakers to more than 300 needy kids in Washington. Villanova, the reigning NCAA men’s champion, has not revealed if an invitation was sent. Many members of the U.S. Olympic Team that competed earlier this year in South Korea did not attend a White House reception.Hockey’s Pittsburgh Penguins and baseball’s Houston Astros have accepted invitations to the White House for the traditional meeting with the President in recent months, as have several college teams. When the New England Patriots went last year, half the team chose not to attend.The Warriors, in lieu of going to the White House, spent that day taking a group of children to the National Museum of African American History and Culture a few miles away.“I think the President has made it pretty clear he’s going to try to divide us, all of us in this country, for political gain,” said Golden State coach Steve Kerr, who has often criticized Trump and his policies. “So it’s just the way it is. I think we all look forward to the day when we can go back to just having a celebration of athletic achievement and celebrate Americans for their achievement, their good deeds.”Kerr also lauded the Eagles for being what he called “fantastic citizens in their own community.”“It will be nice when we can just get back to normal in three years,” Kerr said.The overwhelming issue surrounding the Eagles’ planned visit was that most of the team was not going to attend, and that was a major factor in Trump deciding to pull the invitation.“What else do you expect Trump to do?” Golden State’s Kevin Durant said. “When somebody says they don’t want to come to the White House, he disinvites them. So the photo op don’t look bad. We get it at this point. But it’s good that guys are sticking to what they believe in and what they want to do. Like guys said before me, I’m sure whoever wins this series won’t be going.” Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next View comments Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award MOST READ Curry said Tuesday that he spoke with a current Eagles player about the team’s decision-making process and how it went deeper than disagreeing with Trump policies and the ongoing issue of some NFL players choosing not to stand for the pregame playing of “The Star-Spangled Banner.”“It’s an important conversation, but you can’t control what other people try to do, or try to control the narrative or things like that,” Curry said.Curry said the team has been on the same page after his comments last year and Trump’s subsequent revoking of the Warriors’ invitation. “And every team that’s won a championship since then has gone through that.”There has been clear tension between many star athletes and the current administration throughout the Trump presidency. Trump has often blasted the NFL players who have kneeled for the national anthem, a protest that started in 2016 when San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick did so to protest racism and more specifically the killing of black men by police.Trump said the Eagles’ event was called off because some of their players “disagree with their President because he insists that they proudly stand for the National Anthem, hand on heart, in honor of the great men and women of our military and the people of our country.”ADVERTISEMENT Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew Steam emission over Taal’s main crater ‘steady’ for past 24 hours China population now over 1.4 billion as birthrate falls Volcano watch: Island fissures steaming, lake water receding LATEST STORIES Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James speaks at a news conference after Game 2 of basketball’s NBA Finals between the Golden State Warriors and the Cavaliers in Oakland, Calif., Sunday, June 3, 2018.

Skype released an update to its Android mobile application today which fixes the recently reported security issues in addition to bringing 3G calling to U.S. users. Earlier this month, reports of a security vulnerability in the Android version of the app were found which could compromise personal information, including a user’s name, phone number, chat logs and more. According to Skype, no reported examples of malicious applications misusing this information have been found, but the company will continue to monitor the situation after the fix has been rolled out.However, the more exciting news for U.S. users of the Android application is support for 3G calling, which had previously been limited to select Verizon phones. Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces sarah perez Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement Related Posts What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … Tags:#mobile#news#voice#web Skype launched on Android in March 2010 through a partnership with Verizon Wireless, but it wasn’t until October that a general release was made available to all Android users. In that version, calling was restricted to Wi-Fi only in the U.S.At the time, Skype’s communications lead Peter Parkes told us the company offered “an optimized solution for Android” through its partnership with Verizon Wireless, and that the new Wi-Fi version allowed customers of other mobile carriers to also use the service. “There’s an extensive network of Wi-Fi hotspots and Wi-Fi providers across the U.S., so people in the U.S. should have plenty of opportunities to use Skype,” he said.People who actually live in the U.S. know that this “extensive” network consists of, essentially, coffee shops, airports and McDonald’s. The new 3G calling feature will make the Skype app dramatically better.The update also hints at Skype having inked deals with other mobile carriers, or perhaps an end to the exclusivity clause in its Verizon’s deal. We’ve asked Skype to comment, and will update if the company responds.Update, Skype’s response:Thank you for your inquiry. We have extended the support of Skype for Android to work over 3G (and WiFi). This is just part of Skypes on-going effort to provide consumers with the best Skype experience. With the large 3G networks and extensive network of WiFi hotspots across the US, Android phone users are provided with many opportunities to use Skype on their mobile phone.In the US, our partnership with Verizon still allows us to offer Skype mobile with an optimized solution on Verizons network. Since March 2010, Verizon consumers have enjoyed Skype on a variety of Blackberry, Android, BREW, Windows Mobile, and Palm phones. With the launch of Verizons 4G LTE network, Skype mobile with video will soon be available. In addition Verizon customers can use the Skype for Android when traveling abroad. Security Fix ReleasedEarlier this month, Justin Case who blogs at Android Police discovered a security exploit in the newest version of Skype, then in beta. At first he assumed the vulnerability was only in the test version, not the standard release. As it turned out, he was wrong. The general release from October 2010 also had the same issue – an issue that could potentially affect the 10 million users of the mobile app, Case noted.Skype immediately began investigating the vulnerability and made note of its progress on its official blog on April 20, reminding Android users to be careful about what 3rd-party applications they install.As of this morning’s release, the reported vulnerability has been patched, says Skype. It encourages all Android users to download the most recent version from the Android Market as soon as possible. Don’t worry Skype, you had us at “3G calling.” The Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technology

Romania’s Simona Halep celebrates after defeating Germany’s Angelique Kerber in their semifinal at the Australian Open tennis championships in Melbourne, Australia, Thursday, Jan. 25, 2018. (AP Photo/Dita Alangkara)MELBOURNE, Australia — Simona Halep fended off Angelique Kerber to set up a high stakes Australian Open final against Caroline Wozniacki that will have a first Grand Slam title and the No. 1 ranking on the line for both players.After No. 2 Wozniacki had secured her spot in the final, top-seeded Halep raced to a 6-3, 3-1 lead in the second semifinal before Kerber rallied to force a third. Both players had chances to serve out the match, and both staved off match points in long and engrossing rallies, before Halep converted her fourth match point in a 6-3, 4-6, 9-7 victory.ADVERTISEMENT Halep was on a 10-match winning streak after collecting the title in Shenzhen, China, while Kerber was on a 14-match streak that included the Hopman Cup and her title run in Sydney.“Well, definitely was very tough. I’m shaking now — I’m really emotional,” Halep said after her 2-hour, 20-minute semifinal win over Kerber, the only major winner to reach the last four. “I’m really glad that I could resist. I had two match balls and I lost them. Today I was like a roller coaster — up and down — (but) I had confidence in myself.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSLillard, Anthony lead Blazers over ThunderSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutoutFor Halep, now, it’s a first Grand Slam final appearance off the clay at Roland Garros. For Wozniacki, it’s a first Grand Slam final outside of America.Both finalists have had to save match points to reach Saturday’s championship match. Kammuri turning to super typhoon less likely but possible — Pagasa In the tiebreaker, Wozniacki’s experience made the difference.“Once she had set points. I thought, ‘OK, now you just have to go for it … she’s nervous now, too,’” Wozniacki said. “I managed to just gather myself and thankfully closed it out in the end.”The 27-year-old Dane squandered a match point in a semifinal here against Li Na seven years ago, but held her composure this time around and converted her first match point in the tiebreaker.Wozniacki lost U.S. Open finals to Kim Clijsters in 2009 and to Serena Williams in 2014, but it was that semifinal loss to Li that has haunted her most among her near-misses.“I’ve had many bad losses, many great wins (but) that’s one of the ones that hurt extra because it was going into the finals of a Grand Slam,” she said. “I felt like I was playing better on the day. I felt like it was my time to get there.“I think that’s why it hurt extra that I lost that day, especially with being one point away. I think if you ask any player, they always have one or two matches that they’ll think back on that hurt extra.”The last time the Nos. 1 and 2 seeds met in an Australian Open women’s final, No. 1 Serena Williams beat No. 2 Maria Sharapova in straight sets in 2015. That was 11 years after the previous time, when No. 1 Justine Henin beat No. 2 Kim Clijsters in three.

She also had some nervous moments in her 6-3, 7-6 (2) semifinal win over Elise Mertens.Wozniacki appeared to be coasting against Mertens, getting breaks in the middle of each set. But she began getting tight when she was serving for the match at 5-4: From 30-15, she double-faulted twice and Mertens passed her with a forehand winner to level the set at 5-5.The No. 37-ranked Mertens lifted her intensity, holding her serve at love and then having two set points in the next game before Wozniacki eventually held in a service game lasting 8 ½ minutes.“I got really tight at 5-4,” Wozniacki said. “I think I was nervous. I didn’t do much wrong for the first three points of that game. I served two good serves, then I had that forehand down the line which I missed by a couple of millimeters. It was 30-15 instead of 40-Love.

Even though Tottenham was the one that took the lead through Dele Alli, goals from Alexis Sanchez and Ander Herrera gave Manchester United a 2-1 victory and a place in the FA Cup final.All the players who were rested versus Bournemouth (Romelu Lukaku, Alexis Sanchez, Nemanja Matic, Ashley Young and Antonio Valencia) were in the starting lineup for this FA Cup semi-final. The rest of the starters for Manchester United were David de Gea, Chris Smalling, Phil Jones, Paul Pogba, Ander Herrera and Jesse Lingard. As for Tottenham, Dembele, Dier, Trippier, Alli and Davinson Sanchez didn’t feature in the draw at Brighton and were in the starting eleven today. They were joined by Kane, Son, Eriksen, Ben Davies and Vertonghen. Pochettino’s FA Cup goalkeeper Michel Vorm was on goal.The atmosphere at Wembley was terrific. The tempo at the beginning of the match was excellent. Tottenham had the early initiative and had two corners to show for it. Manchester responded with pressure and two corners of its own. In the 11th minute, Eriksen broke free on the right flank. Dele Alli followed his run and Eriksen found him with a great pass at the far post to give The Spurs a 1-0 lead. The game was open anyway. This just made it even more interesting. Tottenham was playing with great intensity, similar to its display in Juventus in the Champions League.Mourinho explains why Alexis Sanchez flopped at Man United Andrew Smyth – September 13, 2019 Jose Mourinho believes Alexis Sanchez failed miserably at Manchester United because he was a “sad man”, but hopes things will improve at Inter Milan.It took some time, but United eventually settled down after the goal. In the 24th minute, Dembele needlessly lost a ball in his third. Pogba was the one who took it away and sent a superb cross right onto the head of Alexis Sanchez, who guided the ball back across the other side of the net and the score was tied. A couple of minutes later, Valencia received the first yellow card of the game for a reckless two-footed challenge on Dele Alli. Not long after that, Son earned Tottenham’s first booking for a foul on Alexis Sanchez. In the 47th minute, Eric Dier decided to try his luck with a long-range shot. It deflected off Smalling and hit the post. We went to the locker room even at 1-1. The players barely took a breather in what was a gripping, absorbing first half.It was quiet a subdued second half, but Manchester United lit it up in the 62nd minute, when Ander Herrera flew in inside the box and fired a shot right in the middle of the goal. Vorm was caught on the wrong foot and it was 2-1 for The Red Devils. Lloris probably would’ve saved the shot. Pochettino had some problems to solve and the first attempt at a solution was sending Lucas Moura onto the pitch. Ben Davies was the player taken off. By going with a 3-man defense, Pochettino showed he wasn’t going to waste any time on tactics in the search for an equalizer.In the 75th minute, Vorm made a nice save on Pogba’s shot from the edge of Tottenham’s box. Later on, Wanyama came in for Moussa Dembele. Manchester had to withdraw its captain Antonio Valencia, who suffered from cramps. Mateo Darmian came in his stead. A few seconds later, Marcus Rashford replaced Jesse Lingard. Erik Lamela was Spurs’ last substitution. Tottenham failed to create a real chance until the end, as the match finished with a final score of 2-1. It was Hotspur’s 8th straight FA Cup semi-final defeat. Both Alexis Sanchez and Paul Pogba were wonderful today and that’s when Manchester United is at its best. Mourinho worked his magic once more, as The Red Devils booked their place in the final.
According to the footballer, what is important is the match against Liverpool in the English Premier LeagueManchester City and Liverpool will play on Thursday, as part of the English Premier League 2018-2019 season.And the Citizens had a small low-form run recently, which according to footballer Bernardo Silva is not to worry about.“It’s a very good team,” Silva told ESPN.Virgil van Dijk praises Roberto Firmino after Liverpool’s win Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Virgil van Dijk hailed team-mate Roberto Firmino after coming off the bench to inspire Liverpool to a 3-1 comeback win against Newcastle United.“Last season we beat them at home, we lost there in the Premier League and Champions League.”“The first game they were better than us, the second game I thought we were better than them. But because of a lot of things we don’t control we lost that game,” he added.“This season we could have beaten them, we could have won there, we missed a penalty at the end of the game.”“Here at home, we will try to beat them again. It’s a very difficult team, a tough team, they work hard, they’re first, leading the league, so we’ll try to do it as we usually do,” he commented.
