Di Matteo defends team selection

first_imgRoberto Di Matteo defended his decision to make eight changes to Chelsea’s starting line-up for their defeat at Liverpool.The interim boss rested a number of players ahead of the forthcoming Champions League final.Chelsea must win that final against Bayern Munich to qualify for next season’s tournament after their 4-1 loss at Anfield ended any lingering chance of a top-four finish.“We’ve come so far because we’ve used the energy and players we have in the squad. That is the only way to be in the race until now. I have no regrets,” Di Matteo told Sky.“We’ve had very intense games and to get yourself up for all those has been a big demand.

New Study Paints iPhone Owners as Materialistic, Fickle Egomaniacs

first_imgsarah perez Taken on their own, it’s hard to say whether these stats are indicative of anything about iPhone owners specifically, or if they could apply to any group of smartphone-owning mobile users. That’s why the report compares the iPhone and Blackberry owners on each topic. When studied this way, iPhone owners beat Blackberry owners in every category where “winning” is actually the equivalent of being a materialistic, flaky, fickle dolt…well, at least in our opinion. To spin the findings even further in Blackberry’s favor, one of the questions involved asking the mobile users how they “see” themselves. 40% of the iPhone owners claimed they were an “intellectual” while only 36% of Blackberry users said the same. Propped up against the other results, it’s an almost laughable claim.Don’t Buy this HypeClearly, this survey wasn’t meant to be an in-depth examination of the smartphone toting population – in fact, it’s more likely just a publicity stunt to generate talk about Retrevo. Given the questions asked, there were bound to be some “rather interesting” findings, no matter how the respondents answered. And by keeping the sample size to a low number – only 445 individuals – there’s no guarantee that these folks are representative of the population at large in any way. After all, who signs up for online surveys anyway? While the panel of participants was distributed across gender, age, income and location in the U.S., what’s undisclosed is how the questions were asked – was this done scientifically or were they leading questions designed to generate these sorts of results?  We’d bet on the latter. Still, you have to wonder if there isn’t a tiny bit of truth hiding in these numbers somewhere. Could it be that those who buy Apple’s smartphone are a little more wrapped up in mobile life than those whose smartphone purchase probably had more to do with accessing company email in a timely fashion? That may be possible, but that wouldn’t exactly be an incredible reveal if so, now would it?

We’re not buying it. It’s odd that a consumer electronics shopping site would sponsor a study that paints such a lousy picture of iPhone owners, but that’s exactly what Retrevo.com has done. For whatever reason, the results of their recent report on smartphone owners in the U.S. has returned some unflattering figures about those who own Apple’s ubiquitous handheld, the iPhone, as compared to the more business-minded folks who choose a Blackberry instead. According to this study, iPhone owners are more likely to judge potential partners based on their gadgets and not their college degree, handle breakups via email or text, and yet somehow still think of themselves as “intellectuals” despite the fact that they spend more time than their counterparts texting, watching videos, and visiting adult sites on their phones. Really?If you’re an iPhone owner yourself, you’re probably going to be taken a bit aback by these findings. For example, the study claims that “cool gadgets” make a person three times more attractive to an iPhone owner than a college degree. Meanwhile “old” gadgets are a turnoff to one in three iPhone users. And yet, if that person spends a little too much time with said gadgets, one in four iPhone owners will break up with them. One in three will do it via email or text message.last_img read more

BAHAMAS PRIME MINISTER MEETS WITH CARICOM LEADERS AHEAD OF ENERGY SUMMIT

first_img Bahamian music legend gunned down at home in Turks and Caicos Recommended for you Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppFOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE26th January 2015Prime Minister Christie meets with CARICOM leaders ahead of energy summitElcott ColebyBahamas Information ServicesNassau, Bahamas (26th Jan) – Wasting no time in his official capacity as the effective political head of CARICOM, Bahamas Prime Minister Rt. Hon. Perry G. Christie caucused with his Heads of Government Sunday evening in Washington DC ahead of the inaugural Caribbean Energy Security Summit scheduled to begin on Monday.While the Caribbean Community was clear in its desire for increased access to new funding and investment opportunities, they wanted to take a wait and see attitude by first listening to and analyzing the policy position and proposals presented by the United States before finalizing their regional policy position.In chairing his first official Heads of Government meeting, Prime Minister Christie said that in representing a diverse group such as CARICOM, there are bound to be varying levels of demands that countries would like to see fulfilled and consequently, varying levels of satisfaction when decisions are made. It was however necessary for all countries to take full advantage of the opportunities such a summit will present. “We are well aware that there will be significant corporate personalities present who are interested in investing in our countries so it is going to be I think critical for me to reflect the conditions and views of the countries represented by CARICOM” said the Prime Minister.Speaking more directly and specifically to the needs and concerns of CARICOM was the country’s Environment Minister Hon. Kenred Dorsett who said that it was important that “conditions associated with the funding does not preclude any member country from being able to access it; making sure that it’s new funding so that we don’t find themselves precluding us from getting from traditional sources that we’ve already been able to access fund from – will be very important and to ensure that at the end of the day, the actual mechanism by which funding is granting is centered in the CARICOM region to ensure greater level of accountability.”Another important issue up for discussion according to the Environment Minister was the availability of and access to natural gas from the United States and a clearer explanation from the US delegation on the licensing and approval processes for the export of vitally important energy source into CARICOM countries. This is important as CARICOM looks to use cleaner and cheaper fuels like natural gas and reduce its reliance on traditional fossil fuel such as diesel and heavy fuel oil or bunker C.Further, the Environment Minister said he hoped The Bahamas is not judged on its gross domestic product and eliminated from eligibility for critical funding. This has been a long standing and vexing challenge for The Bahamas in accessing critical funding for national development. Both the country’s Prime Minister Rt. Hon. Perry G. Christie and Foreign Minister Hon. Fred Mitchell have addressed this issue in various international forums.According to the US State Department, this Summit is a key component of the Caribbean Energy Security Initiative (CESI) that the US Vice President announced in June 2014. It brings together government, finance, and private sector leaders from the United States, the Caribbean, and representatives of the international community to promote a cleaner and more sustainable energy future in the Caribbean through improved energy governance, energy diversification, greater access to finance, and donor coordination.
