ShoppingPath’s Unique Product Comparison UI

first_imgA Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… There is plenty of data available if needed: product reviews, ratings, pricing details, etc.ConclusionThere’s a lot going on in the interface, but it all seems to work very smoothly. Thegreen dots were probably the only thing that needed explanation when I tested it. Notethat the product also uses the Yahoo Shopping API.Right now ShoppingPath is hoping to be a meta shopping engine, pointing users toretailer websites to complete purchases. It’s not clear to me what the business model is,other than contextual ads. Certainly this kind of technology would be superb atAmazon.com, so long term an acquisition of the technology could be the play. Or maybewhite labelling it to various retail websites. The green dots signify TVsavailable with larger screen sizes for a lower price.After you’ve chosen a suitable product, it displays more details and popularitymeasures: 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market How this works is that you scroll along either the blue dotted line (representingprice) or the bottom line (showing product images), until you find a product you likethat fits your budget. The scrolling is very reminiscent of using the scroll wheel onyour iPod – it’s the same kind of interface theory of being able to scroll throughhundreds of options easily.During the scrolling, you see details of the product – e.g. the Pioneer one in thescreenshot above – and there are many ways to filter your search by feature, via tabs atthe top and drop-down boxes to the left. One good example is sorting by ‘Diagonal Size’(I assume the tabs are different for each product type).

You can’t just park yourself on the edge of the box for 95 minutes – that’s not our way.”But you’ve got to understand teams are going to push you back. Liverpool, not that our supporters might like it, might have more possession than us!”We feel that our individual ability at the top of the pitch, if we get the performance right and we create chances, we have the ability to score.”The pressure’s on to score.

Security Ministry Expands Rehabilitation Programme

first_imgHe explained that this approach is in conjunction with the National Rehabilitation Strategy, which the Department of Correctional Services has incorporated in its operational policies. State Minister in the Ministry of National Security, Senator the Hon. Pearnel Charles Jr., says the Ministry is expanding its rehabilitation programme to further reduce recidivism.Speaking to JIS News at the valedictory service for the 76th intake of Correctional Officers at the Salem Baptist Church in St. Ann on January 23, Senator Charles Jr. said that the partnership with advocacy group, Stand Up for Jamaica, through its Fresh Start programme, has garnered $45 million to boost the CXC curriculum and training for inmates.The State Minister added that this partnership and other projects, such as the ‘We Transform’ programme, which targets juveniles 12 to 18 years, will be used to expose inmates to life skills, vocational skills and prepare them for other opportunities.“The goal is really for us to train and to teach vocational skills where possible, and to help the inmates to be equipped, so that they can have purposeful rehabilitation for successful reintegration,” he said.The State Minister underscored the importance of the partnership, saying this will provide opportunities for inmates to get a job, so that they do not “reoffend”.He argued that while there might not be a 100 per cent success rate, this is an investment in the country.“This is a smart investment, not in a prisoner but in a Jamaican, because if we can transform these lives, when they return to their community they will be less of a risk, and they may even be constructive and productive citizens,” the State Minister said.last_img read more


Buckeyes fall at the hands of Sparty 107

Ohio State football’s defeat to Michigan State on Saturday was more than a setback in the Big Ten standings. It was nearly a loss of historic proportions. A 33-yard touchdown pass from senior quarterback Kirk Cousins to senior receiver B.J. Cunningham midway through the first quarter put the Spartans up early, 7-0. A field goal in the fourth quarter by Dan Conroy proved to be enough for the Spartans who went on to win, 10-7. With 10 seconds to go in the game, red shirt senior quarterback Joe Bauserman found Evan Spencer for a 33-yard touchdown pass to cut the lead to 10-7. But it was too little, too late for the Buckeyes. OSU was only able to accumulate 178 yards of total offense in the game against MSU’s 324 yards. The Buckeyes were only 10 seconds from being shutout for the first time since a 1993 blanking at the hands of Michigan. It would have been the first shutout at Ohio Stadium since October 1982, against Wisconsin. The Buckeyes started the game slowly with freshman quarterback Braxton Miller leading the offense, which accumuled only 42 yards of total offense in the first quarter. In the mean time, Cousins found Cunningham in the back of OSU’s end zone to open the scoring. Cousins rolled out to the right of his pocket and found the streaking Cunningham, who made the catch despite double coverage from OSU. In the second quarter, Miller completed a 33-yard pass on third-and-13 to push OSU into Spartans’ territory for the first time. The drive ended with 7:39 remaining in the first half after Miller’s next pass was thrown into double coverage and intercepted by MSU sophomore corner Darqueze Dennard. By the end of the first half, the Buckeyes’ offense had been out-gained by the Spartans, 170-87. OSU’s defense stopped MSU scoring threats twice in the second quarter, however. A fumble recovery by sophomore defensive tackle Johnathan Hankins with under one minute remaining preserved the 7-0 deficit. The Buckeyes attempted to salvage a score from the remaining 50 seconds of the half, but Miller took a sack and the clock then ran out. Michigan State jumped and celebrated as it headed for its locker room with the lead still intact — the Buckeyes exited the field to a chorus of boos. After the intermission, OSU’s defense held the Spartans again. MSU drove 52 yards from its own 14-yard line to set up a long field goal attempt. Conroy pushed his 51-yard try wide right of the uprights and OSU’s deficit remained at 7-0. OSU’s offense continued to sputter — Miller led the team to only 16 total yards of offense in the third quarter as redshirt senior quarterback Joe Bauserman began to throw a ball behind the Buckeyes’ bench. MSU moved into scoring position again late in the quarter when Cousins completed a 52-yard pass to Cunningham. The Spartans eventually moved to the Buckeyes’ 5-yard line, but Cousins’ pass on third-and-goal was intercepted in the end zone by sophomore safety C.J. Barnett. Then Bauserman went under center for the Buckeyes, though he didn’t fare much better, going 0 of 1 passing on his first drive before being sacked on third down. The Buckeyes’ never found their footing with either Bauserman or Miller leading the offense. Conroy’s 50-yard field with 10:35 remaining put the Spartans up 10-0 and proved to be the game-winning score. OSU (3-2) will continue conference play next Saturday when it makes its first-ever trip to Nebraska. read more


Ohio State looks to break from recent tradition in Sweet 16 matchup

If all the madness of March could be examined and condensed for the Ohio State men’s basketball team, it’d probably read as one word: pressure. No, this isn’t last year’s team that was the NCAA Tournament’s No. 1 overall seed and heavy favorite to win it all. But that sort of pressure, in more way than one, still remains. For the third-straight year, the Buckeyes have advanced to the Sweet 16. They are set to play Cincinnati at 9:45 p.m. Thursday in Boston’s TD Garden. Out of 345 Division I basketball teams, only OSU and Kentucky have managed to accomplish such a feat. The question on everyone’s mind, though, is whether or not the Buckeyes’ season, for the third-straight year, will end there too. It’s even gotten to the point that some have suggested the Sweet 16 is now an expectation for OSU and anything but just isn’t good enough anymore. OSU coach Thad Matta doesn’t seem to think so, though. “I’ve never been one to care a whole lot about what other people think,” Matta said with laugh. “Obviously nobody wants to win more than myself and the players do.” While making it to the Sweet 16 is a goal of OSU and Matta’s, he was clear it’s not the end-all-be-all of their aspirations. “I think being in the situation is great, but being complacent or satisfied is something that we don’t want to do,” he said. “The goal is to be playing on Saturday.” Matta also wanted to point out that this year’s team is “a completely different team” than the past two teams that made it to and lost in the Sweet 16. Still, he hoped lessons were learned the last time the Buckeyes were on such a stage. “I do hope that for William (Buford) and the freshmen that they remember what it feels like to be sent home and you hope that it serves as a reminder, as motivation, whatever you want to call it,” Matta said. What’s different compared to years past is OSU’s opponent Thursday: Cincinnati. Traditionally-and by nature-teams facing off in the Sweet 16 have little familiarity with each other. For example, the Buckeyes’ last two opponents were out of the Southeastern Conference-last year’s being Kentucky and the year before that, Tennessee. This year, however, it’s a neighboring Ohio school that stands in OSU’s way of reaching the Elite 8. Cincinnati, one of four Ohio-based teams (including OSU) to make the Sweet 16, will have its first crack at the Buckeyes since December 2006. Perhaps more notably, it’s just the second time the teams have met since the Bearcats defeated the Buckeyes in consecutive national championship games in 1961 and 1962. That, and OSU’s intentional or unintentional avoidance of playing other Ohio teams, is why some have suggested that there’s even extra pressure on OSU Thursday. But, Matta said he doesn’t want to look at it that way.  “From that standpoint, I think that there’s so much more made on the outside than on the inside. … I want them to play their best basketball regardless of who we’re playing,” he said. For the Buckeyes, the perceived additional challenge of facing an in-state team is more or less a non-factor. “(The players are) pretty callous to that in terms of, ‘Hey, if we don’t play our best basketball, we don’t have a chance to win on Thursday night’ and they know that,” Matta said.   Rather than the contest being so focused on the intrigue of the matchup between OSU and UC, Matta said he thinks this is more about the NCAA Tournament. “This is about trying to get to the Elite 8 and have a chance to play for the national championship,” he said. “Both teams are in the exact same position in that regard.” Right or wrong, the perception out there is that the pressure on OSU to win and advance, perhaps, is as high as it’s been all season.  And it won’t be easy. The Bearcats have been among the nation’s hottest teams since early February, winning 11 of the last 14 since dropping three in a row against West Virginia, Syracuse and Rutgers. Matta said what stands out to him the most are their multi-dimensional guards and the presence that senior forward Yancy Gates commands down low. He also said it seems that the Bearcats have seem to finally found their rhythm. “I think what happened is a very talented group of guys came together. … You’ve got a talented group of guys that have come together and are playing great basketball,” Matta said. Still, OSU said it will treat this game as they would any other. “It’s more about advancing then who you’re advancing against,” Matta said. And that’s exactly what the Buckeyes hope to do Thursday in Boston. read more


Gattuso urges his team to qualify to the Europa League

first_imgThe Coppa Italia final game was a huge disappointment for the whole AC Milan squad and their fans but Gennaro Gattuso urged his team to remain focused and fight for the Europa League place.There are just two matches to go in Serie A and the Rossoneri have been fighting for the last Europa League spots – and their coach believes that they can at least a bit save the ongoing season by qualifying there.The Italian coach spoke about his side’s last games of the season as he said, according to acmilan.com:Maurizio Sarri, JuventusMaurizio Sarri satisfied despite Juventus’ draw at Fiorentina Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Maurizio Sarri was satisfied with Juventus’ performance on Saturday afternoon after finishing a tough game at Fiorentina 0-0.“The TIM Cup Final was a huge disappointment, especially for the many fans who supported us. On my side, I tried to stay calm because we still have two more Finals to play in Serie A. I told my players to put the defeat behind and focus on this. We are AC Milan and we have the duty to classify to Europa League.”“We are the team that has played the most in Italy: 57 games in 52 weeks. If we finish in 7th place we will have to be back here around 11th June, with six preliminaries matches to play. This way, the Serie A just starts and you are already tired. Qualifying directly is very important but I definitely prefer to play the Europa League rather than staying at home.”last_img read more
