Embed from Getty ImagesChelsea youngster Kasey Palmer says his Championship experience has toughened him up.Palmer is midway through a season-long loan spell at Huddersfield Town, scoring four goals and making three assists in 22 league games.And the 20-year-old midfielder believes dropping into the second tier was the best move he could have made as he transitioned from academy football.“Playing men’s football is so different,” Palmer told Chelsea’s website.“You’re getting hard challenges all the time. The fitness in the Championship is incredible.“People play Saturday, Tuesday, Saturday, Tuesday, 90 minutes, and the intensity is so high. It’s non-stop running until the final whistle.“Dealing with the physicality of it has been a massive thing. I struggled at the start of the season but I’ve done a lot with the physios and the sport scientists off the pitch, working on my fitness, and as the season has gone on I’ve started to get more games and feel fitter and stronger.”Palmer attributes his increased fitness to the so-called ‘Gegenpressing’ style of closing down opponents, which Terriers boss David Wagner helped pioneer at Borussia Dortmund as number two to Jurgen Klopp.Embed from Getty ImagesHe said: “The manager is keen on the high press, so as soon as we lose the ball we react and try to win the ball back as soon as possible. For him it’s more important what I do off the ball than what I do on the ball.“When I have the ball I want to be positive and try and create opportunities and score goals, but he knows if we don’t concede a goal we are not going to lose the game.“The work ethic he demands off the team is why we are doing so well this season. There are not many teams fitter than us, we run until the 90th minute and we can do it week in, week out.”Palmer’s first goal for Huddersfield came against Chelsea’s west London rivals Brentford on the opening day of the season, when he had only been on the pitch for a matter of minutes.“It was the dream debut, everything I had dreamed of as a kid growing up,” he said.“My family were all in the crowd, it was the first time I had my name on the back of my shirt going on the pitch in front of 20,000 fans. It was a surreal moment I will never forget.“One of the other players took a shot, I followed it up, the keeper parried it and I took a touch round him, and then with my second touch put it in the net for what proved to be the winning goal. It couldn’t have gone any better.” Ads by Revcontent Trending Articles Urologists: Men, Forget the Blue Pill!

SharePrint RelatedHow Teens Discover GeocachingJuly 8, 2011In “Community”Featured Geocacher of the Month Award WinnersAugust 25, 2011In “Community”Advantages (and disadvantages) of being a geo-teenJanuary 13, 2016In “Community” By Kara BonillaJeffrey with Geocaching.com Co-Founder and CEO Jeremy Irish at GeoWoodstock VI .Geocaching teenagers are becoming easier and easier to find as geocaching gains popularity. Harder to find are teenage cachers who have found nearly two thousand geocaches. Jeffrey Bushnell, 18, from Utah, USA is better known in the caching community as tico jeffrey. He started geocaching when he was 14. Jeffrey has found 1853 caches to date. He’s also discovered a true passion for the high-tech treasure hunt of geocaching.It all started for Jeffrey as a young Boy Scout, when he won a GPS device after selling tickets at a Boy Scout expo. “I went home after the expo, looked it [geocaching] up online and made an account. Then, less than less than five minutes after creating my account, I got on my bike, grabbed my new GPS, and headed out to find the cache closest to my house.”Jeffrey loves geocaching because he explores new places he has never seen before, gets to spend time outdoors, and relishes the thrill of finding a cache.Now a seasoned geocacher, Jeffrey owns 92 caches. He has gone geocaching in twelve states and two other countries besides the US: Canada and Costa Rica. Jeffery owns 70 Trackables and has moved over 800 Trackables throughout his many geocaching adventures.Statistics from Geocaching.com: Jeffrey’s Cumulative Finds, as of July 20, 2011. Besides his aunt, Auzzie Dogs, Jeffery’s family is full of muggles. For Jeffrey, geocaching on family outings takes planning and convincing his parents to let him find a cache. He has to promise not to take a long time. Having a muggle family often makes the game a bit difficult for him, but Jeffrey never lets this slow him down.Jeffrey has found so many geocaches that he can’t even pick a favorite. He loves the thrill of a good find and always enjoys finding caches hidden by some geocachers in his area: “Both of my favorite users (Baad Daata and Billionj) have many caches that I have looked right at and even touched without finding it at first, these caches require a lot of thinking and strategy to find the exact cache container.”Jeffrey at GC10FB, Magic Kingdom, one of many Virtual Caches in Disney World.Jeffrey became an Eagle Scout and graduated high school this year. He will be attending Brigham Young University this fall where he plans to major in civil engineering and minor in graphic design and production. He loves to cache in his local area of Southern Utah, where he has many friends who always go out geocaching with him. Jeffrey also loves to take his grandma and other relatives out on geocaching adventures.One of Jeffrey’s favorite geocaching memories is when he received GeoWoodstock VI 2008 tickets for Christmas and went to the event in Wheatland, California with his aunt, Auzzie Dogs. “We had a great time and enjoyed meeting Jeremy Irish, also meeting a lot of old and new friends.”As some advice from Jeffrey for new teen geocachers, he suggests taking on one cache at a time, and to have fun with it. To learn more about Jeffrey’s geocaching career and to see his incredible geocaching stats, check out his user page, tico jeffrey. It is easy for teens to become outstanding geocachers, like Jeffrey. It is as simple as creating an account, getting a GPS, grabbing a group of friends, and heading out to find the first of many geocaches. DISCLAIMER: Underage geocachers should always geocache using the buddy-system! Take a parent, relative, or friend along and remember to tell a responsible adult the exact caches you plan on finding and the routes you plan on taking. Safe geocaching is fun geocaching!Share with your Friends:More
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 rowinski Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement Tags:#Apple#iOS#iPad#iPhone#security The Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technology
Candidates contesting the Maharashtra Assembly elections will be under watch not just physically, but also in the cyberspace, with the Election Commission of India (ECI) setting up a dedicated cell to monitor their activities on social media platforms ahead of the polls. Cyber crime officials said the social media monitoring cell was set up earlier this month, in light of the observation that social media has become a popular platform for election-related activities. The cell will be headed by Superintendent of Police Balsing Rajput, Maharashtra Cyber, who is also the nodal officer for Maharashtra for the cell.“We are watching out for any and all content uploaded on social media that could amount to violation of any kind, and will be reporting these instances to the relevant authorities. This includes scanning all mediums like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram,” Mr. Rajput said. The cell will mainly be keeping an eye out for three kinds of violations. The first kind is any content being shared that might amount to defamation, rumour-mongering or fake news, and such instances will be forwarded to the concerned police units for further action. The second is violation of the model code of conduct, which will be reported to the ECI. The third category is of posts that might give rise to law and order problems, in which case they will be removed from the internet. “There is a lot of scope for violations through social media, such as holding live events on Facebook or Instagram when campaigning is forbidden, or uploading advertisements of candidates on such platforms when it is not allowed. Any activities which hamper the election process will be liable for action,” Mr. Rajput said. The cell will also scan social media for posts by citizens drawing attention to wilful violations of the model code of conduct by candidates or their supporters, including enticement for votes and use of force or intimidation, officers said.
