New NBA season could see superstars join bandwagon of kneeling athletes during national anthem

first_imgThe 2017-18 NBA regular season will tipoff on 17 October 2017. The tipoff is earlier than usual to enable a reduction in the number of back-to-back games teams are scheduled to play.One major issue which is sweeping across major sporting activities in the United States of America is athletes kneeling during the anthem, rather than stand, as it’s the usual norm globally, and that recent trend threatens to repeat itself when the multi-billion dollar NBA season gets underway.To cushion, address, whatever unpleasant surprises the superstar NBA players might have prepared-an extension of the NFL brouhaha, the NBA sent a memo to teams re-emphasizing that players and coaches must stand during the national anthem.The memo which was distributed by deputy commissioner Mark Tatum advises teams to allow the league office determine how best to deal with any possible instance in which a player, coach, or trainer does not stand for the anthem.Furthermore, the memo clearly instructs that individual teams do not have the discretion to waive the rule that players, coaches and staff stand for the anthem. The league has the discretion to discipline players who violate the rule. It is not clear if the league would exercise it in the event of any protest.The NBA suggested several ways teams could address the current political situation, which includes; a message of unity and how the individual teams are committed to bringing the community together this season, both players and coaches issuing a joint pregame address at their first home games, prepare a video tribute or public service announcement featuring team leadership speaking about the issues they care about.The latest reminder and precautionary steps by the NBA became necessary after NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick began kneeling during the national anthem last season, as a means of protesting social and racial injustice and police brutality.In recent days, NBA stars LeBron James and Stephen Curry have taken to social media expressing their views on President Donald Trump. James described Mr Trump as a ‘bum’, while Curry ruled out accepting a traditional invitation to the White House with his Golden State Warriors championship winning team for a photo-op.Relatedlast_img read more

Google Now Warning Surfers of Hacked Websites

first_imgWhy Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… sarah perez Tags:#Google#news#NYT#security#web Users clicking the warning link will be directed to this page in Google’s Help Center that explains more about the notice and what it means, but Google will not stop you from clicking through on the search result itself, nor does it insert an additional warning after doing so, as it does with sites known to host malware.Google says it will use “a variety of automated tools” to detect signs of hacked sites as quickly as possible and it will then add the notification and alert the site’s webmaster to the issue. Webmasters who are worried that the notices will negatively affect their search traffic can request a site review to accelerate the notification’s removal once this problem has been resolved. There are increasing concerns about website attacks on the mind today, thanks to hackers’ takedown of high-profile sites during the Wikileaks cyberwar in particular, and the website defacements that often accompany political turmoil such as those that hit both Pakistani and Indian government-run sites recently as well as some prompted by political issues here in the U.S. Sometimes the hacks are more akin topranks, while other times they serve as a way for those with strong opinions to express that sentimentanonymously. And sometimes, the hacks are initiated by spammers, instead of these sorts of political hacktivists. To defend against this form of online vandalism, Google has announced it will begin to identify hacked sites, right in the Google search results.According to news from Google’s Webmaster Central blog, the Internet search giant will begin warning Web surfers of sites that may have been hacked with a message that reads “This site may be compromised.” This will help protect those browsing the Web from becoming victims of malware, as is especially the case when sites are compromised by spammers, says Google.
