Share on Pinterest Premier League David de Gea brings greatness to bear for United to repel Arsenal onslaught match reports Share on WhatsApp Read more Share on Facebook Arsenal 1-3 Manchester United: Premier League – as it happened It was an occasion when Manchester United demonstrated a remorseless edge in front of goal and yet could count the goalkeeper, David de Gea, as their most influential player. And it was one in which the joy of a first Premier League away win over a big six rival under José Mourinho was undercut by a senseless red card for Paul Pogba.What a mixed bag it was for the France midfielder. He had set up Antonio Valencia’s opening goal and strutted about the Emirates as though he owned the place. But on 74 minutes he lunged at Héctor Bellerín and planted his studs into the Arsenal defender’s leg. It drew the inevitable censure and the kicker is that Pogba will be suspended for next Sunday’s Manchester derby. Wenger sent on Alex Iwobi, switched to 4-2-3-1 and almost immediately the flow of the game changed. It was a minor miracle how Arsenal did not score before the interval but De Gea refused to be beaten. Two of his first-half saves stood out. He managed to smuggle Lacazette’s close-range shot up and on to the crossbar – Granit Xhaka curled the rebound inches wide – while he pawed the ball away from the line after Sánchez’s free-kick had ricocheted off Lukaku.Arsenal did not get the breaks but the crowd stayed with them and their belief did not drop. Eventually they got their reward when Aaron Ramsey touched back Mesut Özil’s cross and as United stopped and prayed for a flag, Lacazette shot past De Gea. Game on.The outstanding Lingard hit a post on the break in the 52nd minute but it was Arsenal who looked the likelier scorer of the next goal. De Gea had other ideas. He had saved smartly from Iwobi before he threw out a hand to deny Lacazette and followed up by saving with his feet from Sánchez.United’s third was another horror show for Arsenal and, once again, Koscielny was implicated. He seemed to have Pogba under control only to be tricked and out-muscled by him on the touchline. Pogba crossed, Lingard tapped in.Pogba would feel the red mist descend and there was still time for the referee, Andre Marriner, to wave away strong penalty appeals from the Arsenal substitute, Danny Welbeck, and Lacazette. Mourinho raged when Marriner chose only to caution Koscielny rather than dismiss him for a last-man foul on Lukaku. It was the game of the season, so far. When the dust settled, it was United who could smile. Share on LinkedIn The Observer Arsenal played a full part in a richly entertaining spectacle and they will wonder how they emerged with nothing. There were two principle reasons: the re-emergence of their defensive frailties, and De Gea. Arsenal rained 33 shots at the Spaniard’s goal, with 15 of them on target, but their only reward was Alexandre Lacazette’s close-range finish early in the second half to make it 2-1.At that point, Arsenal looked set fair for the equaliser. But De Gea, who had made a string of excellent first-half saves, kept his best until last. His double stop to keep out Lacazette and Alexis Sánchez drew a sharp intake of breath. He finished with 14 saves, equalling a Premier League record. Is there even a question about his current pre-eminence in English football?Jesse Lingard promptly added his second and United’s third on the counterattack and it was impossible to ignore the contrast in the attacking statistics. The visitors’ three goals came from four shots on target.Arsenal had entered on a roll, their confidence pepped by the derby victory over Tottenham Hotspur and a feeling that they had located their groove – particularly on home turf. Theirs was a performance of vim and vigour but no team can offer such presents and expect to emerge unscathed.The first was gift-wrapped by Laurent Koscielny. His floated cross-field pass for Sead Kolasinac was intercepted by Valencia and he moved it on to Pogba. Everyone in red was drawn to the midfielder – an illustration of the fear factor that has built around him – and, when he popped it back to Valencia, the defender had the time and space to shoot low through Petr Cech’s legs.United had scored only once in seven previous away games under Mourinho against big six clubs but here they were two up after 11 minutes. This time, Shkodran Mustafi was the Arsenal villain. Receiving possession as the last defender, he dawdled and was robbed by Lingard. The ball broke to Romelu Lukaku, who found Anthony Martial and his wonderful flick ushered in Lingard, who guided a first-time finish inside the far corner.To add to their problem, Mustafi felt Lingard’s challenge and was forced off. “I don’t know what he has,” Arsène Wenger said waspishly when asked about Mustafi. “I don’t know what is wrong with him at all.” Topics Read more Arsenal Manchester United Share via Email Share on Twitter Share on Messenger Reuse this content

Washington/London: In rare public disdain for a British Prime Minister, US President Donald Trump assailed premier Theresa May for the “mess” she created over her handling of the crucial Brexit negotiations with the EU and even welcomed her impending departure from office. The US President’s digital tirade against the British Prime Minister came hours after Downing Street reiterated the UK’s ambassador to the US Kim Darroch has May’s “full support” following the leak of diplomatic cables highly critical of Trump’s presidency. Also Read – Imran Khan arrives in China, to meet Prez Xi JinpingTrump’s devastating tweets sent a clear message to London that Darroch, a career diplomat who was Monday branded an anti-Trump globalist by his foes back home, is no longer welcome in the White House. He was dis-invited from a dinner with Trump, the Emir of Qatar and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin on Monday. Trump also took what may be a final swipe at outgoing Prime Minister May, accusing her of making a “mess” of Britain’s planned exit from the European Union — a 28-member bloc Trump disdains. Also Read – US blacklists 28 Chinese entities over abuses in XinjiangHe also made clear that the “special relationship” under May’s successor who will take over in a couple of weeks will be on his terms, a sentiment that could have enormous political and diplomatic implications in London and beyond. “The good news for the wonderful United Kingdom is that they will soon have a new Prime Minister,” Trump tweeted as May’s successor will be announced on July 23 after she formally resigned last month after failing to get the backing of Conservative MPs for her divorce deal with the EU. “I have been very critical about the way the U.K. and Prime Minister Theresa May handled Brexit,” he said. “What a mess she and her representatives have created. I told her how it should be done, but she decided to go another way. I do not know the Ambassador, but he is not liked or well….,” Trump said. “We will no longer deal with him,” Trump vowed. Trump’s tweets came after leaked emails revealed Darroch had called his administration “inept”, impacting UK’s special relationship with the US. “We might be flavour of the month, but this is still the land of ‘America First,'” wrote Darroch with reference to Trump’s visit to London last month. In other memos, leaked to the “Mail on Sunday”, the envoy described President Trump as “inept” and his administration as mired in chaos. Number 10 called the leak “unfortunate” and said the UK and US still shared a “special and enduring” relationship. A Downing Street spokesman said: “We have made clear to the US how unfortunate this leak is. The selective extracts leaked do not reflect the closeness of, and the esteem in which we hold, the relationship.” But he said ambassadors needed to be able to provide honest assessments of the politics in their country, and the prime minister stood by Kim. “The UK has a special and enduring relationship with the US based on our long history and commitment to shared values and that will continue to be the case,” he said. A former British ambassador to the US and a close friend of Kim said there was a “possible range of villains” who potentially could have made the leak. Sir Christopher Meyer told Today: “It was clearly somebody who set out deliberately to sabotage Sir Kim’s ambassadorship, to make his position untenable and to have him replaced by somebody more congenial to the leaker.” Speaking on Monday following Trump’s initial comments on the leaked emails, Downing Street said the prime minister did not agree with Kim’s assessment but had “full faith” in him. “We’re not big fans of that man and he has not served the UK well”, Trump had said in his initial comments. Police were urged to open a criminal investigation into the leak in addition to an internal inquiry launched by the government, the BBC reported. Tom Tugendhat, chairman of the foreign affairs committee, told MPs that he had made the request in a letter to the Met Police. The police said it has received Tugendhat’s request but had not received an official governmental referral of allegations in relation to the Official Secrets Act. Such a referral would be required for a criminal investigation to be considered, a Met spokesman said.
BROOKFIELD, N.S. – Lydia Sorflaten flips through decade-old clippings showing how she and her neighbours stopped a nearby cement plant from burning tires at a kiln 500 metres from their tranquil Nova Scotia lake.But there’s a news report on top of the pile from earlier this month that confirms their fight isn’t over.“It’s very discouraging,” the 72-year-old says as she sits at neighbour Ken Warren’s dining room table, stacks of studies piled high.“The people spoke. Where’s the memory? How is this happening again?”The provincial Environment Department recently approved a one-year pilot project that will allow Lafarge Canada Inc. to use scrap tires for fuel in its Brookfield, N.S., factory.Just weeks earlier, the province’s waste diversion corporation, Divert NS, also confirmed it’s shifting distribution of at least 280,000 scrap tires a year from a recycler to Lafarge, a French multinational that will receive a provincial subsidy of about $1.05 per tire.The two decisions have reignited a dormant Canadian debate over the safety of the emissions from tire burning and the wisdom of incinerating rubber for industrial fuels, rather than recycling a spent product.The Lafarge plant is a few minutes drive from Sorflaten’s home. Inside, manager Frederic Bolduc says he expects test results will show burning tires in the kiln will produce fewer greenhouse gases and pollutants than burning coal and petroleum coke.During a tour of the cement plant, he points to the kiln where air temperatures exceeding 2000 C transform powdered stone into molten rock.“From our experience, air (pollution) emissions are lower than from other fuels we’re using,” says the mechanical engineer.However, tire burning was dealt a blow a decade ago by environmental groups arguing the opposite.In 2008, a Lafarge proposal similar to the one for Brookfield was met with stiff opposition from the residents of Bath, Ont., including the rock band Tragically Hip and lead singer Gord Downie. Lafarge backed down after losing a legal battle.And just last year, Ontario passed a regulation bluntly stating the province’s waste diversion program “shall not promote” tire burning.In Nova Scotia, opposition to tire incineration led to a private member’s bill from the then-opposition Liberals that would have banned the practice in 2008. However, the legislation was never proclaimed law.In Alberta, Manitoba, Yukon and New Brunswick, there is currently no burning of scrap tires, according to the Canadian Association of Tire Recycling Agencies.Meanwhile, in British Columbia, tire burning has declined since 1991, from 75 per cent of the total number of scrap tires to just 13 per cent today, according to Rosemary Sutton, director of Tire Stewardship B.C.Nova Scotia’s decision to go ahead with the latest Lafarge project has drawn a frustrated reaction from both the region’s largest environmental group and the province’s sole tire recycler, which had a contract to shred most of the approximately one million old tires available.The firm received a subsidy of about $2 per tire, which it used along with its own money to develop a market for aggregate that can substitute for gravel in road beds and other construction.Mike Chassie, vice president of Halifax C and D Recycler, said he’s worried that Divert NS’s decision to shift to the burning option will mean he’s short on supply.“We think recycling is the best thing for this product,” he said in an interview. “This (burning) is bad for business. It’s bad for recycling. It’s bad for the community.”However, the CEO of non-profit Divert NS, Jeff MacCallum, says creating competition for the recycling firm will help drive down costs and help keep consumer recycling fees from increasing.“We didn’t want all our eggs in one basket,” he said.It’s not a perspective the citizens group agrees with.“How do you measure expense? Is it in dollars and cents, or in the health of the environment?” says Fred Blois, a 74-year-old who has joined Sorflaten in the community effort to stop the project.The group says cancer-causing dioxans and furans are formed from burning the chlorine in old tires. It argues that there’s no scientific consensus on safe levels of such emissions.However, Lafarge executive Rob Cumming says independent testing has shown that dioxin and furan emissions coming out of the kiln’s stack will be below levels that may be harmful to human health.Also, the province’s Environment Department says it will verify the testing over the next year.Cumming said he’s hopeful that the year-long testing program, which has yet to secure a start date, will succeed in persuading the community there’s solid science behind the proposal.Mark Parent, the former environment minister who oversaw the decision a decade ago to reject Lafarge’s first tire-burning proposal, said the Liberal government’s recent decision to go ahead is contrary to a philosophy that all political parties had once supported.“When you burn tires, when you can be recycling them, you take a step back from that vision and move back in the past,” he said. “That’s what really bothers me.”Follow (at)mtuttoncporg on Twitter.
23 February 2012A court decision that found Italy was wrong to intercept and return a boatload of African migrants without first determining whether this would jeopardize their lives is a turning point regarding national responsibilities to migrants, the United Nations refugee agency said today. The UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) issued a statement welcoming what it called the “landmark” judgment of the European Court of Human Rights, sitting in Strasbourg, France, in the case known as Hirsi Jamaa and Others v Italy, in which the agency acted as an intervener.The court ruled that Italy’s decision to intercept and return the boatload of migrants to Libya in 2009, without examining whether this constituted a real risk to their lives, violated its obligations under the European Convention of Human Rights.A group of Somali and Eritrean passengers on the boat had taken the case to the court.UNHCR said the judgment “provides important guidance to European States in their border control and interception practices, representing a turning point regarding State responsibilities and the management of mixed migration flows.”During the case, UNHCR had highlighted the obligation of States to not forcibly return people where they face persecution or serious harm – otherwise known as the “non-refoulement principle.”The agency told the court that, given the situation prevailing in Libya in 2008, so-called “push-back” policies undermined this principle.“UNHCR appreciates the challenges that irregular migration poses to Italy and other EU [European Union] countries and acknowledges the significant efforts made by Italy and other States to save lives in their search and rescue operations,” the statement stressed.“UNHCR advises that people rescued or intercepted at sea are, very often, more vulnerable than other asylum-seekers, both physically and psychologically, and therefore unable to declare their intention to apply for asylum immediately after their interception at sea. UNHCR recommends that border control measures should provide for access to the territory of persons in need of international protection.”
Noting that this was the first year the International Day was being commemorated without Mr. Mandela, who passed away in early December 2013, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said this sad reality is also a reminder of “Madiba’s” courageous struggle against apartheid and his inspiring victory over the racist forces that had imprisoned him for 27 years.The UN General Assembly, in a show of solidarity with the anti-apartheid movement, established this Day to commemorate the 1960 Sharpeville Massacre, when 69 people were killed and many others injured as police opened fire on a peaceful protest against South Africa’s appalling pass laws.“Nelson Mandela’s journey from prisoner to President was the triumph of an extraordinary individual against the forces of hate, ignorance and fear — and it was a testimony to the power of courage, reconciliation and forgiveness to overcome the injustice of racial discrimination,” said the UN chief in his message on the Day.Today, we remember Sharpeville as a symbol of the terrible toll of racial discrimination, and we honour those who lost their lives during the massacre. “At the same time, we recall that President Mandela framed Sharpeville’s legacy as an unwavering resolve to protect the dignity and rights of all people,” said the Secretary-General.With that in mind, Mr. Ban called on all people, especially political, civic and religious leaders, to strongly condemn messages and ideas based on racism, racial superiority or hatred as well as those that incite racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance. “On this Day, let us acknowledge that racial discrimination remains a dangerous threat and resolve to tackle it through dialogue inspired by the proven ability of individuals to respect, protect and defend our rich diversity as one human family,” he declared.In a strong rebuke of racism and racist attitudes, Irina Bokova, Director-General of the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), said: “Bigotry impoverishes the world, seeking to divide humanity against itself and undermine the inexhaustible strength that lies in our diversity. Equality and justice must guide us, no matter the circumstances.”At this time of deep social transformation and global change, Ms. Bokova, like the Secretary-General, urged the world to draw strength from Mr. Mandela’s experience and his determination to bridge divides despite all challenges.“On this Day, we must recall that respect of others is essential to respect for ourselves and our own communities and that humanity is a single family, brought together by shared aspirations and a common destiny,” she said in her message, adding that lasting peace can only be built on the equality and dignity of every woman and man – regardless of ethnic, religious, gender, socio-economic or other background.“Respect and tolerance are liberating acts, whereby the differences of others are recognized as the same as our own and whereby the riches of another culture are taken as the wealth of all,” said Ms. Bokova, insisting that such values must be taught, because education remains the most powerful way to prevent racism and uproot discrimination. “This is why UNESCO is advancing human rights education across the world, and developing new forms of education for global citizenship.”

CORVALLIS, Ore. — There’s a lot that can go wrong in using unmanned aircraft to do survey work for research.Weather can make a scheduled flight impossible, sometimes software controlling the vehicles has mysterious hiccups or the satellites that guide the vehicle autonomously through a planned route can’t be reached — or an important component is forgotten in the lab.Since he began using unmanned aircraft in his research in 2012, Oregon State University forestry professor Michael Wing has seen many ways a flight can go wrong.Once, in August, he even had a turkey vulture threaten to attack a quadcopter he was using; the bird came within about 15 feet of the vehicle, he said.Wing said nearly every flight has some kind of complication.Wednesday, when Wing and one of his graduate students surveyed a vineyard near Amity, was no exception.On the first flight, Wing and his student, Cory Garms, briefly lost control of the quadcopter they were using to record infrared footage of a vineyard as the craft’s battery was ticking down to near zero. The vehicle, which was following a programmed route, kept trying to follow the route even as Garms was attempting to take manual control of it to land it as the battery was getting low.Garms eventually was able to get control of the craft and land it with about 10 percent of its battery capacity remaining. That’s well below the 25 percent he and Wing aim to have remaining when they land, so that they don’t risk thousands of dollars of equipment falling out of the sky when the battery dies.
AC Milan manager Gennaro Gattuso is aware of the persistent speculation that suggests that Antonio Conte will be replacing him, but he has revealed that he has been personally assured by the club’s new general manager Leonardo that he will remain in chargeThe future of Gattuso has been heavily speculated on recently due to the take over by American Hedge fund Elliot Management, who are reportedly in favour of recruiting some else to take charge of the Rossoneri.But Gattuso has been assured by Leonardo that he will remain in charge of Milan for next season.Now the 40-year-old intends to remain focused on the club’s pre-season tour in the United States with Milan set to face Tottenham Hotspur tonight.“The boys are always on their phones,” said Gattuso, according to Football-Italia.“They go on the internet, they read everything and they speak to the owners.Maurizio 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.“That’s how it was during my time as well. Until the transfer window is shut, people will always talk and that brings a bit of a bad mood.“The forwards worry that another forward will come in, the midfielders worry that another midfielder will arrive.“Even from my point of view, I read every day that my position is under threat.“Calmness should give you the desire to work and professionalism.”Gattuso signed a long-term deal back in April this year to become Milan’s permanent manager following his successful first season in charge after replacing the fired Vincenzo Montella in November.
Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho confirmed that they will be without Alexis Sanchez for their Champions League match with JuventusThe Chilean forward was a no-show in Monday’s training session after coming on as a late substitute in United’s 2-2 draw at Chelsea on Saturday in the Premier League.This news comes in light of reports suggesting that Sanchez is looking to leave United, despite only having joined the club in January from Arsenal.Mourinho also suggested that he will have to make do without Diogo Dalot, Scott McTominay, Marouane Fellaini, Jesse Lingard and Victor Lindelof for Tuesday’s game.None of the above-mentioned players showed up at United’s Carrington base this morning for training.This will undoubtedly come as an unwelcome blow for Mourinho with the pressure now on to take all three points against Juventus after their lacklustre 0-0 draw with Valencia last time out in the Champions League.However, Mourinho is happy with the form of his United side even after blowing the chance of victory at Chelsea over the weekend due to Ross Barkley’s last-gasp equaliser.“United’s form was shown in the past two matches,” said Mourinho in a press conference on Twitter.Mourinho: “Lionel Messi made me a better coach” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Jose Mourinho believes the experience of going up against Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi at Real Madrid made him a greater coach.“The way we can play, and the way we want to play was shown in the last two matches, so we will try to [play that way again].”He added: “There were contradictory feelings after the Chelsea match,”“I told the players we have to keep that happiness, pride and confidence of the way we played. But on the other side, use the anger to motivate ourselves to play a big match.”United are second in Group H on four points after two games with Juventus leading the way with maximum points.Jose confirms that Alexis Sanchez is unavailable for Tuesday’s #UCL match. #MUFC— Manchester United (@ManUtd) October 22, 2018

COPY LINKAD Loading … About 400 senior executives of Cognizant have accepted the company’s voluntary separation package (VSP), a move that the US-based company said will help it save about $60 million annually, according to a PTI report on Sunday.A majority of Cognizant’s 256,000-strong workforce is based in India. It is estimated that of the 400 people who opted for the separation, a large number could be from India.The company did not disclose details of how many Indians have accepted its separation offer.Cognizant had initiated a voluntary separation programme in May this year. The company offered up to nine months of salary as part of the VRS package to some of its top-level executives in the US and India.”Of the $39 million of realignment charges, $35 million was for the roughly 400 associates who accepted our VSP. We expect approximately $60 million of annualised savings as a result of the VSP,” Cognizant CFO Karen McLoughlin said at a recent investor call.She explained that these “adjustments” will help improve the company’s profitability. She added that Cognizant expects to incur additional cost related to advisory fees, severance, lease termination, and facility consolidation costs in the remaining part of 2017, the PTI report said.The Cognizant CFO said that while the company will carefully manage headcount, it will continue to hire and invest in critical skills needed to grow Cognizant’s digital business.Noting that the company had made “good headway” in the June quarter, McLoughlin said that the company will look at driving utilisation rates higher by “slowing the pace of our hiring and improving resource alignment” to reskilling and multi-skilling programmes, the report said.Cognizant’s overall headcount decreased by about 4,400 people at the end of June from March 2017 quarter, even though it had hired 10,800 people (gross) during the June quarter.The Cognizant CFO said that Cognizant’s attrition level was higher than normal given reductions resulting from performance evaluations and the voluntary separation programme.The over $13 billion Cognizant has also raised the lower end of its revenue outlook for the year and now expects its topline to grow 9-10 per cent, instead of 8-10 per cent growth expected earlier.The PTI report quoted Cognizant President Rajeev Mehta as saying that his company is investing “tens of millions of dollars” this year to continuously deepen and broaden skills in areas like analytics, artificial intelligence, data science, and digital security.

Another bee in the beehive—Astronomers discover binary star in the NGC 2632 cluster Explore further HD 64315 (also known as HIP 38430) is the main ionising source of the Galactic H ii region Sh2-311. It was initially classified by previous studies as a binary star, located some 16,000 light years away from the Earth. However, a new study conducted by Lorenzo’s team reveals breakthrough information about this stellar system.The researchers have analyzed over 50 high-resolution spectra of HD 64315 obtained during previous observations and also photometric data from All Sky Automated Survey and Hipparcos catalogs. This analysis revealed strong signatures of more than two components present in the spectra, indicating that HD 64315 is, in fact, a multiple system comprising at least four components.”By using a complex procedure to analyse 52 high-resolution spectra, we are able to confirm that HD 64315 contains two binary systems, one of which is an eclipsing binary,” the paper reads.According to the research, HD 64315 is composed of at least two binary systems, one of which is an eclipsing binary. The two binaries are located about 500 AU from each other.HD 64315 AaAb is the non-eclipsing binary with an orbital period of 2.7 days. Both components of this binary have minimal masses of at least 10 solar masses, but most likely about 30 solar masses.The eclipsing binary was designated HD 64315 BaBb and has a much shorter orbital period which equals approximately one day. Both stars of this binary have a similar mass of about 14.6 solar masses.The researchers found that HD 64315 AaAb’s components are hotter than those of the eclipsing binary, and dominate the appearance of the whole system. They estimate that HD 64315 has a total mass of above 90 solar masses. Notably, the eclipsing binary is one the most massive overcontact binaries known, a likely merger progenitor in a very wide multiple system.The team does not exclude the possibility that HD 64315 could be a compact cluster in which most of the mass could be concentrated in the two observed binaries. “Lower-mass components would not be observable in the glare of this very bright system. However, in any case, it is highly unlikely that HD 64315 is surrounded by a cluster with about 1,000 solar masses, as is usual for other O6 V stars,” the authors noted.In concluding remarks, the researchers emphasized that HD 64315 is potentially a massive hierarchical system that formed in a sparse environment, which highlights the need for detailed studies of multiplicity in apparently “isolated” stars.”HD 64315 provides a cautionary tale about high-mass star isolation and multiplicity. Its total mass is likely above 90 solar masses, but it seems to have formed without an accompanying cluster,” the scientists concluded. © 2017 Phys.org Citation: Massive multiple star system found by astronomers (2017, August 7) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2017-08-massive-multiple-star-astronomers.html More information: arxiv.org/pdf/1708.00849.pdf A group of astronomers led by Javier Lorenzo of the University of Alicante, Spain, has discovered that the binary star system HD 64315 is more complex than previously thought.

Free Workshop | August 28: Get Better Engagement and Build Trust With Customers Now Enroll Now for Free By Matthew McKenzieFor IT decision makers in small and midsize businesses, Linux is all about having choices — and all about making choices. That includes sifting through a seemingly endless list of distros, weighing a variety of service and support options, and selecting the most appropriate software for your company’s business needs.There is no silver bullet for picking the right Linux distro or choosing the most appropriate software and support options. That said, it is possible to make these tasks more manageable by categorizing the leading Linux distros and the types of support that are available to business Linux users.Distro DecisionsHundreds of Linux distros are currently available. Many are designed for general-purpose desktop use; others are stripped-down models intended to run servers, while still others are tailored for use as system rescue disks, data restoration, or other specialized tasks.Most companies, however, will want to pick a mature, respected Linux distro with a solid track record. As a rule, these distros fall into one of three categories. Two of these categories involve Linux distros that are associated, in different ways, with a specific corporate backer; the third category includes community-developed Linux distros that have stood the test of time and enjoy a stellar reputation among business IT users.Subscription-Based OfferingsCompanies such as Red Hat, Novell, Xandros, and Mandriva charge subscription fees that include software updates, documentation, and technical support. These fees vary quite a bit, based upon the type and number of Linux systems: For a one-year subscription for a Red Hat server OS, for example, you’ll pay from around $350 to more than $2,500, depending on the product and level of technical support provided.Linux users looking for a free ride can still find it: All of these companies’ Linux distros also are available as free, community-supported versions. In fact, the code contributed to distros like Fedora (the free version of Red Hat Enterprise Linux) or OpenSUSE (the free version of Novell’s SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop) often makes its way into new versions of these companies’ commercial Linux releases. For companies with stringent support and service needs, however, including many larger enterprises, the subscription-based model allows them to manage the cost, complexity, and risk of a move from Windows to Linux.The Ubuntu Linux OptionOver the past few years, Ubuntu Linux has emerged from relative obscurity to join the top tier of business Linux options. Like Red Hat, SUSE, and other subscription-based distros, Ubuntu has the backing of a single, well-funded, for-profit company: Canonical.Yet Canonical’s business model differs from its competitors in one key area: Both its desktop and server editions of Ubuntu Linux are available completely free of charge. Instead, Canonical earns revenue providing paid technical support, training and certification, migration assistance, and other custom services to businesses that require them. Many companies find this model preferable to subscription-based Linux options, as it allows them to minimize their up-front deployment costs without giving up the ability to turn to a single, authoritative source of service and technical support when they need it.Community-Maintained Linux DistrosLike most open-source software, Linux owes its very existence to a community of volunteer contributors. Mature, highly regarded distros such as Debian and Knoppix continue to thrive today, even though they’re not associated with a single corporate shepherd (such as Ubuntu) or a related commercial Linux distro (such as Red Hat or SUSE Linux).Many companies find that community-supported distros provide everything they need — and they often repay the favor by contributing bug fixes or additional code back to the Linux community. Companies that choose these distros, however, tend to be more self-reliant when it comes to service and support; while many Linux users find free, community-based support that meets their needs, there are no guarantees this will always be the case.There are no hard and fast rules for deciding which type of Linux distro will work best for your business. Lately, Ubuntu has worked hard to position itself as a good choice for smaller companies that want to minimize their up-front costs without sacrificing the ability to get professional service and support when they need it. Yet subscription-based distros are a solid choice for companies that expect to rely heavily upon a vendor’s service and support offerings; they may also provide a good safety net for IT departments that need to “sell” a Linux deployment to risk-averse non-IT decision-makers.Exploring The Linux Support SystemSome business decision-makers still worry that moving to Linux means living with hit-or-miss technical support. In fact, adopting Linux can dramatically improve both the quantity and quality of a company’s support options.What makes the Linux support system so robust? It boils down to three key factors:Linux distributors rely heavily — or in some cases entirely — upon their ability to earn revenue providing service and technical support to their users. Proprietary software vendors, on the other hand, typically regard technical support as a cost center. While this does not guarantee that a proprietary vendor will provide inferior technical support, it doesn’t exactly give them an incentive to provide superior support, either.Linux, like all open-source software, offers a much lower barrier to entry for third-party service and support providers than proprietary software does. In fact, the only meaningful “barriers to entry” for an open-source support provider are its technical abilities and customer service skills. Proprietary software vendors, on the other hand, are typically either the sole source for professional support, or they maintain control over a network of third-party support providers.Many Linux users, including businesses, are able to rely upon free, community-based resources to handle routine technical support, troubleshooting, and even documentation needs. While paid support options are still available, this approach allows companies to use them only when it is absolutely necessary. These resources also ensure that a company’s ability to find technical support doesn’t depend upon a single vendor’s willingness to continue providing such support.Smaller businesses have a lot to gain from this approach to Linux service and support: If a company doesn’t like the support it is getting from one Linux support provider, it can simply take its business elsewhere. In addition to improving the quality of commercial Linux and open-source technical support, this model also encourages service providers to keep their prices competitive — a radical departure for companies forced to live with single-source software procurement policies.In order to take advantage of these benefits, however, you need to focus on two tasks. First, you need to have at least a rough idea of your business’ service and support needs before committing to a Linux deployment. Second, you need to line up the appropriate level of support to meet those needs, either by choosing a subscription-based Linux distro with built-in support commitments, evaluating third-party commercial support options, or simply doing some research on the quality and quantity of free online or community-based support.Matthew McKenzie is an Athens, Ga.-based freelance journalist who has covered open-source software and other business IT issues for more than a decade. He has worked as an editor and contributor for leading industry publications including CNET, PC World, InformationWeek, and Computerworld.com.Defining The DistroStrictly speaking, a Linux distro is a lot more than just Linux. By itself, the Linux kernel isn’t very useful; it requires a supporting cast that may include any number of utilities and third-party software offerings. These run the gamut from command-line tools associated with even the most stripped-down Linux system, to enterprise-class server applications, to the familiar desktop tools that every PC user today takes for granted.In addition, some (but not all) distros are tailored for use primarily as either a server or as a desktop system. Besides various tweaks to each type of system’s Linux kernel, a server distro may ship with lots of (surprise!) server apps but no graphical desktop environment, while a desktop distro will ship with a bundled desktop GUI, a Web browser, business productivity tools, and all sorts of additional software.There are two lessons to take away from these differences. First, don’t assume too much about which applications a particular Linux distro might install by default; it’s a simple matter to check out the list of software that ships with a particular distro before you pick it. Second, understand that there are often important differences in distros optimized for server versus desktop use.

But his performance in that film, a turn that Washington Post critic Rita Kempley described as “serenely eccentric” in 1989, launched a chapter in Williams’s career that swung — sometimes too easily — from broad comedy and family fare (“Mrs. Doubtfire,” “Aladdin,” “Happy Feet”) to films that, while capitalizing on his eccentricity, made sure not to stint on sensitivity and uplift. After receiving two more Academy Award nominations — for “Dead Poets Society” and the 1991 Terry Gilliam movie “The Fisher King,” Williams finally won in 1998, for his turn as a sympathetic therapist in the Ben Affleck-Matt Damon collaboration “Good Will Hunting.” Robin Williams was too much.For much of his career, the irrepressible Williams, who was found dead in a suspected suicide Monday at the age of 63, forswore subtlety. Ever since bursting into the public consciousness as the manic, rainbow-suspender-wearing TV alien in the sitcom “Mork & Mindy,” he seemed to be permanently toggling between two points on the emotional dial: wild, hyperkinetic looniness or unabashed sincerity. In more recent years, he seemed to have discovered different, darker corners that allowed him to exhibit some of his most compelling work, not as the one-man purveyor of over-the-top joie de vivre but as a gifted actor unafraid of his own shadows.For audiences of a certain age, Williams was best known as the man with the motormouth persona and constantly shifting alter egos who would jump effortlessly into impersonations during his breathless, scene-stealing appearances on “The Tonight Show” and other late-night talk programs. Whether he was channeling Popeye with note-perfect malapropisms in the eponymous 1980 movie or portraying the loud, loquacious disc jockey in “Good Morning, Vietnam,” Williams could be counted on to bring unbridled energy and a near-bottomless supply of ad libs to roles that felt tailored to his singular gifts. As impressive as Williams was in those roles — and as much fun as it was to watch him later channel not one but two presidents, in the “Night at the Museum” movies (Teddy Roosevelt) and last year’s “Lee Daniels’ The Butler” (Dwight D. Eisenhower) — it was the smaller films Williams did along the way that seemed to extract his most interesting qualities, the ones he labored so mightily to keep hidden, whether with hysterically pitched comedy, super-sincere drama or too-cute, begging-to-be-liked turns in such creatively bereft paydays as “Patch Adams” and “Old Dogs.”He never shied from subversive material: He has a cameo in Bobcat Goldthwait’s poisonously funny satire “Shakes the Clown,” and he went out of his way to dismantle his own sunnily unthreatening public persona as a washed-up, foul-mouthed kids performer in Danny DeVito’s scabrous showbiz parody “Death to Smoochy.” But it wasn’t until 2002’s psychological thriller “One Hour Photo” that Williams seemed to shed the mannerisms and self-conscious quirk completely.In that quiet, unsettling drama, exquisitely directed by Mark Romanek, Williams played a photo-booth clerk who becomes obsessed with a prosperous suburban family whose lives he witnesses through a succession of happy portraits. Williams’s finely calibrated performance was utterly free of the tics and affectations that are so tempting to someone who has come to count on and crave the audience’s love. Rather than seek his fans’ approval with the actorly equivalent of ingratiating winks, Williams was willing to completely inhabit a character who was somehow terrifying, pathetic, creepy and vulnerable all at once. Robin Williams last year teamed with Sarah Michelle Gellar in the CBS sitcom “The Crazy Ones.” He played a man who ran a successful ad agency with his daughter. Richard Cartwright/CBSAlthough Williams had delivered his share of bravura performances throughout his career, “One Hour Photo” revealed something new about an actor who could no longer be confined to rainbow suspenders, giddy talk-show appearances or dewy-eyed sentiment. And he managed to find a role of similar complexity several years later, in Goldthwait’s “World’s Greatest Dad,” in which Williams again played a high school poetry teacher, this time in the service of a comedy as fraught with nihilistic cruelty as it was with tough, mordant humanism.Not as many people saw “One Hour Photo” or “World’s Greatest Dad” as did “Good Will Hunting” or “Mrs. Doubtfire” — or maybe even “Death to Smoochy.” But those who did saw a side of Williams that went beyond light or dark. They saw something brutally, transparently honest in an actor who may have made a career out of being too much, but who at his best was capable of knowing what was just enough.Recommended: Robin Williams, frenetic, fearless actor and comedian, dies at 63© 2014, The Washington Post Facebook Comments
