He rebounded after giving up an RBI double and then loading the bases, striking out the next two hitters before walking in the tying run.“We run into those days where you’ve got to be able to find a way to fight through it,” Anderson said. “I thought I was about to get out of there surrendering one run, but unfortunately, that’s not what happened.” Angels’ poor pitching spoils an Albert Pujols milestone Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Angels offense breaks out to split doubleheader with Astros The Rangers’ triple play marked the first time that the batter was not retired on a triple play since June 3, 1912, in a game between Brooklyn and Cincinnati.

But after the triple play kept the game close, the Angels failed to protect the lead in the eighth. Justin Anderson gave up two runs before Morales allowed a go-ahead single to Odor and let another run score on a wild pitch.

Instead, the Angels were left gawking at a tragicomic bottom of the eighth inning that led to an 8-6 loss in a game they thought they had in the bag. Justin Anderson and Osmer Morales, the Angels’ seventh and eighth pitchers of a planned bullpen game combined to allow four runs.Sign up for Home Turf and get exclusive stories every SoCal sports fan must read, sent daily. Subscribe here.Despite the late meltdown, given that it was a mid-August game between non-contending teams, the play that will be remembered the longest will surely be the bases-loaded one-hopper Angels second baseman David Fletcher hit to Rangers third baseman Jurickson Profar in the fifth inning, with the Angels ahead 6-3. Profar stepped on third base for a forceout, tagged Taylor Ward as he stumbled off third base and then threw to Rougned Odor at second to force out the runner from first (Kole Calhoun).“That was a real game-changer and momentum-breaker,” Angels manager Mike Scioscia said. “On a day we had to use our bullpen, you want to try to get as many runs as you can and it would have been important. Profar made a great play on it, Fletch hit the ball hard and (they) got out of the fourth inning with no damage at a time when we looked like we were going to pad our lead and hopefully get far enough in front.”last_img read more

Is a Multiverse Detectable?

first_imgThe idea of a multiverse (an ensemble of universes like our own visible one) has been criticized as unscientific because it would be unobservable, even in principle.  Now, however, some theoretical physicists are claiming that bubble universes beyond ours could be detected in the cosmic microwave background radiation – provided they collide with our universe.  Does this bring multiverse theory back into the realm of science? National Geographic News, posting an article on this idea, said, “The multiverse, if it exists, may have sprung out of a chaotic fluctuation of empty space.”  Chaotic motions from other bubble universes might “bruise” our universe and leave telltale patterns in the cosmic microwave background (CMB).  Matthew Johnson, a theoretical physicist at the Perimeter Institute, with colleagues, is working on an algorithm to find the patterns. But what to look for?  Sean Carroll, physicist at Caltech, warned that “People tend to recognize patterns whether or not they are there.”  Trouble is, nobody knows what the needle in the haystack would look like.  “Even with better data from Planck” (a new space telescope measuring the CMB in finer detail), “finding evidence of a universe-to-universe smashup is a game of chance, thanks to the nearly infinite possible outcomes.”  For this reason and the fact that any deviations in the CMB are likely to be extremely subtle, Carroll thinks the quest is “a long shot”.  But the implications would be so earth shattering, he is eager to see what Johnson and team find. They don’t know what they are looking for, they don’t know what they might expect to find, and they won’t be able to confirm it when they see it.  Imagine looking for a what-not in a pile of whatever, that might leave an infinite set of possible outcomes.  You could claim success and nobody could ever confirm or deny it.  NG unabashedly stated another piece of nonsense: “The multiverse, if it exists, may have sprung out of a chaotic fluctuation of empty space.”  The whatever, if it exists, might have spring out of a chaotic what-not.  Isn’t science wonderful. The elephant in the room that Carroll, Johnson, Hawking and all the other multiverse advocates are overlooking is the question of ultimate origins.  Even if, in their wildest dreams, in spite of overwhelming odds, they had some basis for claiming that some other bubble is pushing on our bubble, they would merely displace the question of ultimate origins to another location.  Let them start with what Francis Schaeffer called “nothing nothing” – no space, no time, no laws of nature, no fields, no categories.  From absolutely nothing, get them to derive not only a universe, but reasoning beings questioning its origin and destiny.  The folly of such a quest is self-evident. Exercise.  See if Ethan Siegel in “The Physics of Nothing, The Philosophy of Everything” on ScienceBlogs.com succeeded in building a universe out of nothing nothing.  (Hint: philosophy and laws of physics are something.)(Visited 47 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Apple Finally Gets Serious About User Security, Adds Two-Step Verification

first_img Related Posts Apple is beefing up its security for users of its iTunes, App Store and iBookstore consumers. Starting today, Apple is offering two-step verification for Apple ID, the authentication mechanism it uses for customers using iPhone, iPad and Mac computers.The move is long overdue for Apple. Two-step verification is a security feature that requires users to verify their identity in more than one way. Previously, if you bought an app in the App Store, Apple would only ask you for your password. That’s a one-step verification. Two-step verification adds another hurdle — asking users to swipe a card, for instance, or to enter a PIN texted to their phone. The idea is that each additional factor used to authenticate a customer makes it that much harder for spammers and crooks to log in as someone they’re not.Apple is enabling two-step verification as an “optional security feature” for Apple ID. To set it up, you must register one or more trusted devices — say, your smartphone (though technically any device you control that can receive 4-digit verification codes via SMS text or the “Find My iPhone” feature of iOS will do). Apple will also send users a 14 character “Recovery Code” you can print out and save as a way of getting back into your account should you lose your smartphone or forget your password.The Importance Of Two-Step AuthenticationMany companies use multi-factor authentication. Google has offered two-step authentication to all users for more than two years. Facebook also offers it. The biggest cautionary tale about Apple security and two-step authentication recently is that of technology reporter Mat Honan. Honan, now a senior writer at Wired, had many of his important accounts hacked, including his Twitter, Google and Apple ID. The hackers, who Honan said were after his three letter @mat Twitter account, were able to remotely erase his iPhone, iPad and MacBook after gaining access to his Apple account. Apple, which lacked two-factor authentication at the time, more or less allowed the hackers into Honan’s accounts after they had tracked some personal information about him through his Amazon account. If Apple ID had two-factor authentication at the time, the malicious attack might well have stopped dead when trying to dive into Honan’s Apple accounts.How To Set Up Two-Factor AuthenticationGo to Apple’s support page here and follow the directions. It’s fairly simple. First, you want to sign in to your account with “Manage your Apple ID.” Then click on “Password and Security.” Click on “Two-Step Verification” and follow the onscreen instructions.Many smartphone users are clueless on how much access their unique IDs allow them. Many people, such as Honan, have most of their gadget and social accounts tied through Apple ID or like services. To stay safe, best to make sure that:your passwords are unique;your accounts aren’t tied together through a single service (so that if it gets hacked, they all do);you use two-step authentication whenever possible.Lead image via Flickr user thisisanicephoto, CC 2.0 Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … dan rowinskicenter_img Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement Tags:#Apple#iOS#iPad#iPhone#security The Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technologylast_img read more

Julianne Hough Wants To Readdress Success

first_imgStrayer University has announced that actress, dancer and “Dancing With The Stars” judge Julianne Hough has joined its Readdress Success movement, which seeks to revise Merriam Webster’s current definition of success and which has drawn support from over 90,000 petition signers around the world since being launched in August.Video: Julianne Hough Redefines SuccessThe initiative stems from a nationwide survey conducted by Strayer University, which found 90 percent of Americans define success as more about happiness than about power, possessions or prestige. Based on these findings – which also indicate that six in ten Americans believe success means attaining personal goals, having good relationships and loving what you do for a living – Strayer University believes a more accurate definition of success should be expanded to “happiness derived from good relationships and the attainment of personal goals.”“We are thrilled that Strayer University’s Readdress Success movement is getting support from diverse influencers in education, business, entertainment and the public at large,” said Brian Jones, president of Strayer University. “This wide interest in our movement points to the robust and important dialogue that is happening across America today – that success means different things to different people and that there is no ‘one size fits all’ definition. Strayer University is proud to be a catalyst for this change, which has also inspired and motivated many of our students and employees.”Julianne Hough is an actress, dancer, producer and Emmy Award-winning choreographer. Currently a judge on ABC’s Dancing With The Stars, she is also a previous two-time professional champion of the show. She has starred in such films as “Footloose,” “Rock of Ages” and “Safe Haven” and will be seen next in the comedy “Dirty Grandpa” with Robert De Niro and Zac Efron and starring in “Grease: Live!” broadcasting live on FOX on January 31.Hough is supporting the Readdress Success initiative through her social channels and personal blog, and has released an exclusive video that offers a behind the scenes look at the transformation of her personal definition of success through dance.“I used to define success in traditional terms of wealth and fame, just how it’s outlined in the dictionary,” explains Hough. “But as I’ve matured, I’ve realized that this definition is lacking and doesn’t match up with the things I feel make me a success. So I had to redefine what success meant to me by allowing my personal achievements and happiness to dictate its meaning. The funny thing is, since I changed my perspective, I feel more successful than ever in both my career and personal life.”To inspire widespread participation, Strayer University started a petition on Change.org that allows the public to show their support, share the initiative with their networks, and give back to a good cause. For every signature collected on the petition, Strayer University will donate 50 cents to charity partner Dress for Success, an international not-for-profit organization that promotes the economic independence of disadvantaged women by providing professional attire, a network of support and the career development tools to help women thrive in work and in life.Strayer University has also released a related series inspiring interviews with well-known celebrities and influencers across a wide spectrum of industries through Inc.com, along with emotionally touching video sketches and social experiments that have driven more than 6,700,000 YouTube views to date.To take part in Strayer University’s Readdress Success movement and to sign the petition to officially change the definition of the word ‘success,’ click here.last_img read more
