first_imgMidnight North played a rocking tribute to Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young with Tom Hamilton and Scott Metzger at the Brooklyn Bowl last night. Grateful Dead bassist Phil Lesh was in attendance, supporting his son Grahame Lesh, who plays guitar and sings in the San Francisco-based Americana-rock band. Lesh didn’t play, but he did enjoy watching on as the band slayed the stage with their high energy and impressive takes on the classic tunes of CSNY.

49ers 26, Seahawks 23: First win in 11 meetings comes in OT

first_imgDRAFT STATUS: The Raiders and Arizona Cardinals each fell to 3-11 and thus leapfrogged the 49ers (4-10) atop the 2019 NFL Draft board. The 49ers are at No. 4 between the New York Jets (4-10) and Jacksonville Jaguars (4-10) based on strength of schedule.WINNING DRIVE: Trent Taylor’s 15-yard punt return to the 49ers’ 38-yard line gave them their best starting field position of the game. Matt Breida opened with carries of 4 and 7 yards before aggravating an ankle injury on a 5-yard loss. Dante Pettis (5 catches, 83 yards) then drew a pass-interference penalty, and Jeff Wilson Jr. followed runs of 16, 3 and 4 yards to set up Gould’s winner with 3:06 left.Taylor said of his return: “I just needed a little crease and did what I could to give us good field position. Little stuff like that adds up.”DEFENSIVE PLAY OF THE DAY: Buckner produced a huge, third-down sack after Solomon Thomas and Ronald Blair pressured Russell Wilson out of the pocket, forcing the Seahawks to settle for a tying field goal (23-23 with 5:21 to go).That was Buckner’s 11th sack this season. No. 10 set up a third-and-18 scenario in the third quarter, and he led the 49ers with  11 tackles, four for loss. Buckner also sacked Wilson twice two weeks ago.“Shoot, four times in one year? That’s a great year,” Buckner said. “He’s a hard man to get with his low center of gravity and quickness. It’s definitely a relief.” He also called it “gratifying” to reach his preseason goal of becoming the first 49er with double-digit sacks since Aldon Smith (19 1/2 in 2012).OFFENSIVE PLAY OF THE DAY: Mullens opened a fourth-quarter drive by dropping a perfect pass over Dante Pettis’ shoulder for a 30-yard gain to the Seattle 45. “That was absolutely insane, a heck of a pitch-and-catch by those two,” George Kittle said.BEST SPECIAL-TEAMS PLAY: Gould’s winning field goal deserves its own category. So let’s recognize Richie James’ 97-yard kickoff return, a swift response to the Seahawks’ opening-series touchdown. James benefited from terrific blocks by Tarvarius Moore, Mark Nzeocha and James Onwualu, and a not-so-great tackle attempt by kicker Sebastian Janikowski.Said James: “When I saw the kicker on the left, I was like, ‘I’ve got to make him miss and then I’m going to keep running.” It was the 49ers’ first kickoff return for a touchdown since Ted Ginn Jr. in the 2011 opener against the Seahawks at Candlestick.TURNOVER TREND: The 49ers failed to record a takeway for the sixth consecutive game, and incredibly they are 3-3 in that span. They have a league-low five takeaways on the season. Mark Nzeocha did force a Wilson fumble but the Seahawks retained possession for an ensuing punt.WORST INJURY: Cornerback Ahkello Witherspoon (right knee) got hurt on the defense’s opening series, and he will undergo an MRI on Monday for what the 49ers initially are calling a sprain; they haven’t ruled out torn ligaments. Tarvarius Moore replaced him and played quite well through a rib injury.CELEK TIME: Tight end Garrett Celek delivered his second touchdown this season and first since the home opener, scoring on a 41-yard catch-and-run past Seahawks safety Tedric Thompson, who slipped on the play. That gave the 49ers a 14-6 lead.“I’ve been waiting all year (because) Celek Time is just infectious. It’s so much fun,” Kittle said. “The whole sideline and stadium just loves it.”Celek Time ⌚️#SEAvsSF pic.twitter.com/gTTuBMFUxp— San Francisco 49ers (@49ers) December 16, 2018KICKING IT: Gould’s first point-after kick gave him 1,500 career points, and then came more work. His third field goal of the game, a 45-yard attempt, put the 49ers ahead 23-20 with 9:51 to go. He is 29-of-30 on field-goal attempts this season, a contract year. Shanahan said he wants to re-sign him, and Gould said of that: “I”m not worried about that. What’s it matter if I get signed today, or two days from now, three months from now? It hasn’t been much of a conversation,” Gould said. “… I’d love to be here.”MULLENS STOCK: Mullens (20-of-29, 275 yards, 1 TD) improved to 3-1 at Levi’s Stadium. Sherman said of him: “He’s shown he can play in the league. I just hope we keep him because teams need a quarterback. This guy isn’t just playing conservative football.” Mullens refrained from patting himself on the back, adding: “If you want to look at a textbook, collective team win, I believe that was it.”BEST RALLY: Jeff Wilson Jr. rallied to set up the winning field goal with a 16-yard run to the Seahawks 25. That helped make up for a lost fumble on his first carry, reminiscent of his lost fumble two weeks ago at Seattle. He lost a yard on his his next carry, dropped a third-quarter screen pass and also drew an unsportsmanlike-conduct penalty for flipping the ball at a Seahawks lineman. Wilson got a chance at redemption, and, “It was awesome the way it ended, because it should give him confidence and make him ready for next week,” Shanahan said.TOUGHEST RUN: Seahawks rusher Chris Carson (22 carries, 119 yards) bulled his way in for a tying touchdown on fourth-and-1 to make it 20-20. He slipped out of D.J. Jones’ grasp, lunged from Elijah Lee’s ankle tackle and slammed into D.J. Reed at the goal line.SECOND-BEST DRIVE: Starting at their own 2-yard line, the 49ers marched 98 yards for a second-quarter touchdown and 14-6 lead. Clutch, third-down completions to Taylor and Pettis set up Celek’s 41-yard touchdown reception 9:29 before halftime.WORST DEFENSIVE PLAY: Free safety Antone Exum whiffed in the open field on Doug Baldwin’s 35-yard touchdown catch, trimming the 49ers’ lead to 14-13 with 5:19 until halftime. Could Exum’s form been impacted by the $53,482 fine he drew last game for unnecessary roughness?Sidenote: Adrian Colbert, the opening-game starter at free safety, is recovering well from a season-ending leg injury and a stabilizing screw soon will be removed from his right ankle.KITTLE COUNT: Coming off last Sunday’s 214-yard outing (first half), tight end George Kittle had catches of 21, 20 and 10 yards, and he also drew a pass-interference penalty in the fourth quarter.WORST DRIVE: The 49ers got the ball with 2:37 remaining at their own 20, and after completions to Matt Breida (9 yards) and Pettis (8 yards), Mullens got sacked twice by Jarran Reed, and those were sandwiched around a Taylor drop.WORST PENALTY: Linebacker Fred Warner draws a Clay Matthews-esque roughing-the-passer penalty to open a fourth-quarter series, as officials ruled he drove Wilson into ground after Wilson threw away the ball.BEST PENALTIES: Pettis’ ability to draw pass interference on the winning drive was huge, but let’s go with Taylor’s down-field block that provoked a retaliatory strike and subsequent unnecessary-roughness penalty on cornerback Justin Coleman in the fourth quarter. The Seahawks got penalized 14 times for 148 yards.TOUGHEST CATCH: Bourne lined up in the left slot, went over the middle, jumped to grab Mullens’ pass, got upended by the shoulder of Griffin and still came down with the 12-yard catch at the 49ers’ 29-yard line. It helped spark the 98-yard, second-quarter drive.FIELD POSITION: The 49ers first three offensive series began inside their 10-yard line: at the 8, 1 and 2.Related Articles Two weeks after losing 43-16 at Seattle, the 49ers have won two in a row for the first time since last December’s 5-0 finish with then-quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo.“They flat out embarrassed us two weeks ago. … It was a long two weeks, for sure,” said DeForest Buckner, who had 11 tackles and raised his season sack total to 11 with Sunday’s pair. “Everyone wanted to get out there and redeem themselves.”Left tackle Joe Staley and tight end Garrett Celek are the only 49ers left from the 2013 team that last beat Seattle, to which Staley said of Sunday’s result: “It feels good, but it stinks that we had to go through a streak like that. I just wish we had more to play for this year.”Let’s get to the highs and lows from the 49ers’ penultimate home game, with the NFC North-winning Chicago Bears due in next Sunday: 49ers Deebo Samuel helping key playoff run as respected rookie (CLICK HERE, if you are unable to view this video or photo gallery on your mobile device.)SANTA CLARA – It took 5 years and 10 straight losses to the Seattle Seahawks before the 49ers finally beat their NFC West rival again, doing so in overtime Sunday 26-23.The 49ers (4-10) won it on Robbie Gould’s fourth field goal, a 36-yard attempt amid rare rain at Levi’s Stadium, where the Seahawks (8-6) had won all four of their previous visits.“Obviously it means a lot beating Seattle for me,” former Seahawk Richard Sherman said. “But it’s the way guys showed up and kept battling. … We’re out there with an incredibly young team. I’m guessing we’re putting out the youngest guys in the league at this point.” Kurtenbach: The 49ers need a new identity — it’s up to Jimmy Garoppolo to provide itcenter_img Roger Craig, high-kicking 49ers running back, has 50-50 chance for induction to Hall of Fame NFL picks Week 16: 49ers rebound, Raiders fall, Patriots clinch 49ers vs. Rams: 5 keys to winning on Saturday night stage last_img read more

Digital Urdu: New Software Improves Data Analysis of Pakistan’s National Language

first_imgWhy Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Tags:#news#NYT#web audrey watters A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… “Voice of the Citizen” Through Social Media Data MiningSrihari says she’s focused on the “voice of the citizen” in this project. “Some of the information is political and some of it is not,” she says, and despite the turmoil in the region, a lot of the social media chatter in Pakistan is about cricket.Srihari presented her findings at a recent conference – “Blogs & Bullets: Social Media and the Struggle for Political Change” – at Stanford Universitiy. She says she became interested in Urdu because they were looking at blogs from different cultures. Noting that the advent of the Web has caused an explosion in online content in a variety of languages, Srihari says, “When you start looking at blogs in different cultures, you can really start to understand public sentiment and opinions.” 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Related Posts The extent to which social media sites like Twitter and Facebook play a role in the recent political uprisings in Tunisa, Egypt, Bahrain and so on continues to be a source of debate. What is more clear, however, is that the major languages of these regions are not well-served by electronic resources that make text analysis of these documents and data possible.But now computer scientists have developed the first software system that will allow for the processing of documents in Urdu, the national language of Pakistan and one of the five most-spoken languages in the world.The software will help lay the foundation for data mining in Urdu and provide for more accurate transliteration, as well as open the door for projects in similar languages. “This is the first comprehensive, natural language processing system for Urdu,” says Rohini Srihari, University of Buffalo associate professor of computer science and engineering. The work is a joint project between her department and Janya, an Amherst-based company she founded that provides information extraction technology in multiple languages, including Chinese, Arabic, Pashto, and Russian.Natural Language Processing and UrduThe problem with data mining and sentiment analysis in other languages is that they don’t often have the same sort of “established electronic infrastructures” that we have for English and European languages. “If you are trying to do sentiment analysis – to find out what are the main topics people are talking about in a country, is there intensity building up over something and who is swaying opinion – then you must have an information extraction system,” Srihari says.That is what she has been working on with researchers, something that can perform word segmentation (tagging parts of speech, for example) and entity-tagging (recognizing people, place, and organization names) in a raw, untranslated Urdu document.last_img read more

3 Low-light Cameras For Every Budget Range

first_imgHigh Budget: Canon ME20F-SHVery recently, Canon announced a brand new full-frame camera that’s capable of shooting up to 4 million ISO. This option will certainly blow any other low-light camera out of the water, but it comes at a price – $30,000. At the top end of the pricing structure, this camera will likely find its home in rental houses, as its modular design and lack of internal recording makes it less than ideal for every day shooting.Canon’s New 4 Million+ ISO Camera Is Amazingly Impractical – PremiumBeatNew Canon Full-Frame 35mm Camera Sees in the Dark with 4 Million Max ISO – No Film SchoolCanon ME20F-SH Press Release – Canon Got any hot opinions on any of the low-light cameras discussed above? Share them in the comments below! Mid Budget: Canon C300 Mark IIWhile Canon may be falling behind certain trends as a camera manufacturer, their cinema cameras are undeniably great in low light. If you’re in need of a camera that not only delivers amazing low-light performance but also offers more traditional ergonomics, the C300 Mark II (or other C-series cameras) are a great option and hard to beat.Get to Know Canon’s New 4K Powerhouse, the C300 Mark II – No Film SchoolInitial Thoughts/Hands on With the Canon C300 Mark 2 – Philip BloomCanon C300 Mark II: 15 Stops of Dynamic Range and More – PremiumBeatHere’s a review of the camera from Camera and Lens Review. High-sensitivity cameras that can shoot in ultra low light are more popular than ever. These three low-light cameras will have you covered, regardless of the size of your budget.Generally, I’m not a fan of shooting without lighting and bumping your ISO up like crazy (no matter how clean your camera may be). That said, there are definitely scenarios where you need to push things further than usual. Thankfully, technology has progressed over the last few years, and several cameras have emerged that allow you to capture fantastic images without traditional lighting setups.Low Budget: Sony a7SThe Sony a7S isn’t the cheapest camera around, though it’s relatively affordable coming in at around $2500. If you’re aiming to shoot in the dark, but still require the practicality and affordability of a DSLR style camera, the a7S is the way to go. That said, if you’re in the market for the a7S, you may want to consider holding off until the a7S Mark II is released, which will likely allow you to record 4K internally.
