BUDAPEST (Reuters) - Hungary need cohesion, discipline and a fair bit of luck against defending champions Portugal if they are to make a good start to their Euro 2020 Group F campaign, coach Marco Rossi said on Monday. Hungary are playing in their second consecutive Euros after failing to qualify for any major tournament for three decades, and they are clear underdogs in a group that also includes world champions France and perennial powerhouse Germany. Asked which Portuguese player Hungary will be most concerned about on Tuesday, Rossi laughed. "I could almost list the entire squad," he told reporters. "I could just be the kit man or one of the ground staff for them... Naming one player would be a disservice to the others. They have huge potential in all areas of the pitch." He said the Portuguese frontline was perhaps the most formidable, with world-class players in the starting lineup and on the bench. "We need to help one another out, we need to make sure we're very ... » Learn More about Soccer-Hungary need unity, luck against defending champions Portugal

Inforial (The Jakarta Post) - ● Wed, June 16, 2021 2021-06-16 00:00 0 c78dad32e3af0945bdb46490a80c27e9 4 Inforial Free Palm oil is contained in many daily products, from food, cosmetics and personal care products to household cleaning products. This means that the public both benefits from and is highly dependent on the palm oil industry for the various products they consume. Most Indonesian consumers, however, are unaware of the palm oil content of various consumer goods. As a consequence, they are also unaware of the impact of the industry’s exponential and rapid growth. This low public awareness is likely is due to the indirect relevance of palm oil in consumers’ daily lives, as well as the complex and multilayered production chain, which can be hard to digest. A consumer survey by MarkPlus Inc. published in 2020 found that most consumers primarily associated palm oil with cooking oils and margarines. The survey also showed that although most ... » Learn More about Why should you care about sustainable palm oil?
Flooding and destruction after a storm —PHOTO COURTESY OF NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC CHANNEL Extreme weather conditions have been wreaking havoc in many places around the globe in recent years, reaching frightening new levels of intensity due to global warming. This is particularly more troubling in countries located along the typhoon belt in the Pacific—like the Philippines, which is visited by an average of 20 typhoons, five of them destructive, every year. Growing up, we’ve been forewarned about the unpredictability of the weather. But extreme meteorologist Reed Timmer (“Storm Chasers,” “Tornado Chasers”) and his team are giving it all they’ve got to change that. This is why science-driven “storm chasers” like Reed feel it’s an urgent endeavor whose benefits outweigh the risks. These days, they’re inching closer and closer into the so-called “eye of the storm” to measure temperature, pressure and humidity, along the way helping “demystify” weather patterns and establishing a ... » Learn More about ‘Storm Rising’: How Reed Timmer’s plan to chase a typhoon in PH was foiled by the pandemic
A coalition of musicians and human rights groups urged music streaming company Spotify on May 4 to rule out possible use of a speech recognition tool it recently developed to suggest songs – describing the technology as “creepy” and “invasive”. In January, Sweden-based Spotify patented a technology that analyses users’ speech and background noise to suggest tracks based on their mood, gender, age, accent or surroundings. The company did not immediately reply to a request for comment, pointing instead to a letter it published in April in which it said it has never implemented the tool in its products and does not plan to do so in the future. But in an open letter, more than 180 artistes and activists called on the firm to abandon the project altogether and make a public commitment to never use, license, sell, or monetise it. “This recommendation technology is dangerous, a violation of privacy and other human rights, and should not be implemented by Spotify or any other company,” ... » Learn More about Spotify urged to rule out ‘invasive’ voice recognition tech
Philippine women’s volleyball team at the SEA Games in Singapore. Photo by Raffy Lerma The glamorous Philippine women’s volleyball team may look like it has never looked like before: A squad without its stars. It may be a shock to fans of the game that has enjoyed a rejuvenation in the country, but for the Philippine National Volleyball Federation (PNVF), it is a chance to change the volleyball landscape here. With the stars failing to show up on Wednesday’s tryouts in Subic, PNVF president Ramon “Tats” Suzara said he won’t give another chance to players who didn’t bother to come, this despite the 130 invitations the sport’s body had issued for the men’s, women’s and beach volley teams. The tryouts will run until Friday. “Why? Don’t tell me the national team can’t be formed without Alyssa (Valdez) and other [star] players,” Suzara told the Inquirer. “We have to effect change in Philippine volleyball.” Other no-shows Suzara said the PNVF is looking at the prospects of ... » Learn More about Suzara willing to scratch off tryout-absent stars like Valdez, Fajardo from PH women’s team
