ALAMEDA — Derek Carr spent part of his bye week defending himself against accusations he cried after getting sacked one of six times in a blowout loss in London. If he wasn’t crying because of physical pain, he had all the right to because of how bad his offensive line was in a 27-3 loss to the Seahawks in Week 6.Carr withstood six sacks that night, tied for the most sacks he’d taken in a single game in his then-68-game career.

Nao deve surpreender ninguem saber que o pais que inventou a discagem por tom e que dispoe das melhores telecomunicaçoes do mundo.As telecomunicaçoes sao um dos sectores que mais tem crescido na economia sul africana, reflectindo um crescimento rapido do telemovel no pais. O sector das telecomunicaçoes, juntamente com o dos transportes e armazenagem, representa quase 10% do PIB (Produto Interno Bruto).Com uma rede 99,9% digital e que inclui a ultima versao de comunicaçao por linha fixa, sem fio e por satelite, o pais tem a rede de telecomunicaçoes mais desenvolvida em toda a África.O monopolio da linha fixa da Telkom, uma empresa registada em bolsa cuja maioria do capital pertence ao Estado, expirou com a licença concedida a Neotel, como segundo maior operador nacional. A Neotel esta licenciada para fornecer toda a gama de serviços de telecomunicaçoes, a excepçao da mobilidade total.O boom do telemovel na África do SulA África do Sul e o quarto mercado mundial que mais cresce no campo das comunicaçoes. Os tres operadores de rede celular do pais – a Vodacom, a MTN e a Cell C – fornecem sistemas de telecomunicaçao a mais de 39 milhoes de assinantes ou quase 80% da populaçao.A introduçao de uma certa portabilidade e a chegada em 2006 do Virgin Mobile, um fornecedor de serviços de rede virtual a operar em conjunto com a Cell C, tem contribuido para o mercado da concorrencia no sector.As empresas de telemovel sul africanas estao a fazer grandes progressos em África e no Medio Oriente, com a MTN a liderar com mais de 20 operaçoes nestes mercados emergentes.No pais, algumas das principais marcas, como a Siemens, a Alcatel, a SBC Communications, a Telecom Malaysia e a Vodafone, fizeram enormes investimentos na industria local.Acesso a banda larga e os inerentes custosO melhor acesso a banda larga, a ADSL e ao 3G tem disparado nas ligaçoes Internet, com o numero de navegadores na Internet a aumentar 121% em apenas dois anos, de 1,8 milhoes em Maio de 2005 para 3,8 milhoes em Maio de 2007, segundo pesquisa da firma Nielsen/NetRatings.A banda larga, no entanto, continua de acesso relativamente limitado e caro na África do Sul, entravando a taxa de crescimento economico. Mas o Governo compremeteu-se a melhorar a acessibilidade e a baixar os custos.Para isso, o Governo aprovou leis no inicio de 2008, a fim de permitir a formaçao da Infraco, uma nova empresa do estado que fornecera capacidade de transmissao por banda larga atraves de cabos de fibra optica a outros operadores no pais.O papel da Infraco completara o do fornecedor estatal de sinais Sentech, que fornece ligaçao a Internet – com enfase no sector publico – atraves de sistemas sem fio em vez dos cabos de fibra optica.Entretanto, as cidades maiores como a Cidade do Cabo, Durban, Joanesburgo e Pretoria lançaram iniciativas publicas e privadas para formarem as suas proprias redes de banda larga, de modo a fornecer aos seus habitantes serviços de voz e transmissao de dados mais economicos.E em Setembro de 2007, a MTN anunciou que se juntaria a outros operadores para construir uma rede de fibra optica de 5.000 km nos principais centros do pais, a fim de dar resposta a procura cada vez maior de banda larga por parte dos seus clientes.Estao a ser estudados novos projectos para colocaçao de cabos fibro-opticos submarinos ao longo das costas oriental e ocidental de África acelerar as ligaçoes entre o continente africano e o resto do mundo.Este artigo foi actualizado em: Setembro de 2008Reporter infoSA.

Real Madrid Bale criticised by Toshack for failing to learn Spanish during Real Madrid stint Chris Burton 04:29 5/31/18 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(6) Getty Real Madrid Gareth Bale Primera División The Wales international has hinted at a summer move, with a fellow countryman and ex-Blancos boss questioning the effort he has put in over five years Gareth Bale has faced criticism from former Real Madrid manager John Toshack for failing to learn Spanish during a five-year spell at the Santiago Bernabeu.Having moved to the Spanish capital as part of a record-breaking transfer in 2013, the Wales international has now hinted that he could soon be heading for the exits.He admitted after a match-winning performance in the Champions League final that he will be weighing up his options this summer as he seeks to find a starting berth “week in, week out”.

Emery on borrowed time after another abysmal Arsenal display Diving, tactical fouls & the emerging war of words between Guardiola & Klopp Sorry, Cristiano! Pjanic is Juventus’ most important player right now If he is to leave Madrid, then the 28-year-old will depart with a Liga title and four Champions League crowns under his belt.He has failed to win over everybody, though, with fitness issues proving problematic and fellow Welshman Toshack questioning how much effort Bale put in to adjusting to new surroundings.He told Cadena SER: “He is a different player from his team-mates.”He doesn’t like to speak to the press, and it’s very sad that with all the time he has been in Spain, he doesn’t know how to speak the language.”If you are going to play in another country, at least you have the obligation to try.”People will always think better of you if you make the effort.”Toshack, who has taken in two spells as Madrid boss during his coaching career, has also supported Zinedine Zidane’s decision to drop Bale at times.He may be a superstar performer with a ‘Galactico’ profile, but his struggles to steer clear of the treatment table have proved frustrating for all concerned.Toshack added: “If you put yourself in Zidane’s situation you have to understand it.“If you analyse the injuries you see that they are not normal.“Bale would undoubtedly be a starter if he did not have those injury problems.” Bale, who has been heavily linked with a move to Manchester United, was able to end the 2017-18 with 39 appearances across all competitions.A stunning brace off the bench against Liverpool in the Champions League final also took his goal return to a healthy 21 – his best return for Madrid since hitting 22 in his debut campaign.

Moira Smith with ENSTAR: “ENSTAR has three divisions: Anchorage, the Mat-Su Valley, and Kenai. We do a book drive at one school in each division, and have done so each year for the last four years or so. In Anchorage, we do it with our partner school, Willow Crest Elementary. In Kenai, it’s Mountain View. And in the Mat-Su, it’s Finger Lake Elementary.” The annual giving event typically takes place in December, closer to the holidays, but was postponed this school year due to the November 30 earthquake. Smith: “ENSTAR pays for the pizza for each school. We go to the school in the morning and set up the books on a table. The kids come in and pick out a book. They then return to their classes and a short while later, when lunchtime happens, ENSTAR employees serve the pizza to the kids. The kids just love getting a new book and having pizza. They are happy to have the injection of fun and the gift from their community gas company.” ENSTAR employees contribute the books for each division. According to Smith, there is a healthy competition among divisions and among employees for who donates the most — this year, the Mat-Su won.
The U.S. Justice Department ordered the repayment by lodge owners Bruce and Yvonne Cooper and former lodge operator and tenant Mark Krall. Responders deployed booms around a dock and adjacent beach, collecting 1,878 bags of waste. The cleanup costing about $9 million was financed by the Oil Spill Liability Trust Fund, the U.S. Coast Guard said. It was determined that cause of the spill was that the dock structure supporting the building collapsed. This caused much of the building, along with the fuel bladder, to fall to the shoreline and water below. The entire contents of the bladder, roughly 3,000 gallons, were released. According to reports, the Coopers and Krall are unable to repay the money, but the Justice Department is pursuing the funds.
