If you’ve been meaning to check out one or more of these databases, these tutorials could form the basis for a good weekend project.How to Move from MySQL to CouchDB: Part 1If you’re interested in migrating a MySQL database to CouchDB, or just want to learn more about how CouchDB works in comparison to a SQL database, check out this tutorial from the CouchOne blog:If you have a database built using MySQL, you might be wondering if, and more importantly how, that database (and your application) can be moved to CouchDB. The biggest stumbling block is not the technical aspects of creating the CouchDB or storing your information (although they are important), instead it’s about looking at your data in a different way, and then knowing how that changes how your application works.We’re going to start by looking at how you can turn your MySQL database structure into CouchDB, and how querying your database in CouchDB differs from the methods used in MySQL.MongoDB: Basic QueriesAbove is a video tutorial on basic MongoDB queries from ThinkVitamin. There are other videos in this series, but you’ll have to sign up for a ThinkVitamin membership.Introduction to Amazon’s SimpleDBAmazon.com has a somewhat overlooked NoSQL database called SimpleDB. As Tom Borthwick points out in his tutorial, there’s more “no” than just NoSQL: “No datatypes (except utf-8 strings), no transactions, no joins, no indexes, no schema, no administration, and no cost for minimal usage.”last_img read more

I have seen so much blood that I hate red now: Yuvraj

first_imgAlmost everyone in this world feel that ‘red is the colour of love’ but if you are a certain Yuvraj Singh, then you have more reasons to believe that even ‘shades of grey’ can have a soothing feeling than colour red.Even a year back, Yuvraj would have told you that he loved everything red but not anymore for the man who has successfully battled against a rare germ cell cancer.”Red used to be my favourite colour but I have seen so much of blood that now I hate red. The colour irritates me,” Yuvraj said during an interaction with mediapersons at his cricket academy in Pathways School, Gurgaon recently.As Lance Armstrong would tell you that “It’s Not About the Bike”, Yuvraj now realizes that it’s certainly not about ‘the bat’ anymore.”My approach towards the game has been changed. Of course, it will be the biggest achievement for me whenever I will play my first game for the country (after recovering).”He recalled the hard days during treatment and how it felt being back to normal life.”I struggled to breath earlier. Now I am breathing with both lungs. I can eat samosa. I could smell food during chemo but could not eat it. I am relieved to be able to live like a normal man now,” the 30-year-old said in a pragmatic tone.After initial realization that he has been affected by a dreadful disease, the stylish left-hander did feel that he may not be able to play again.advertisement”I was in bed for 4-6 months and only I can feel what it means to be back on the field. Even I did not imagine that I will be able to play again but my progress has been good. I can’t describe in words, how it felt when I had my first knocking session.”For the past couple of weeks, Yuvraj has time and again expressed his desire to be a part of World T20 Championship but he doesn’t want to rush things.”I am not worried. Obviously, I want to play but I can’t keep thinking about it,” he added.The ‘Man of The Tournament’ during World Cup admitted that initial phase of training was “really painful.””For the first two weeks, every muscle in my body was paining. The body used to be bit shaky but I’m 50-55 per cent there. Rest, I will attain in two months.”I am hitting the ball well. The hand-eye co-ordination is better although the feet movement is slow. The best part is that I don’t get tired now. Hopefully, I will be able to make a comeback in T20 World Cup,” Yuvraj, who is working out for six hours a day, concluded.last_img read more

NonStars Like Channing Frye Are The Best Kind Of Trade Deadline Pickup

They can help their new teams’ bottom lines — since 1987, each additional WAR produced by a newcomer after the deadline has been associated with a 0.9-point improvement to his team’s efficiency differential, compared with the team’s differential before the trade. But oftentimes those players are shipped into situations where no amount of productivity can keep the ship from sinking or drag an average roster to playoff greatness.And even the stars who go to good teams can arrive to mixed results. Drexler, like Jamal Mashburn in 1997 and Dikembe Mutombo in 2001, played well after landing in his new destination, but his team’s net efficiency sank dramatically down the stretch of the regular season before righting itself in the playoffs.Furthermore, because trades involve, uh, trade-offs between teams, sometimes star deals simply re-allocate strengths from one side of the ball to the other. The biggest post-deadline boost in offensive efficiency since 1987 belongs to the 1999 New Jersey Nets, which added offensive dynamo Stephon Marbury and improved their efficiency at that end by 11.6 points per 100 possessions … but also got worse on defense by 6.6 points per 100 possessions. (Marbury didn’t exactly lock opponents down on D.)Likewise, the biggest boost in defensive efficiency belongs to last year’s Jazz, which improved by 10.6 points per 100 possessions on D after jettisoning defensive sieve Enes Kanter and installing Stifle Tower Rudy Gobert as starting center … but also got worse by 2.3 points per 100 possessions on offense. That’s still a clear win for the Jazz, but it shows that blockbuster deadline trades rarely come off perfectly clean, without some downside to go with the benefits.Which brings us back to Frye and the Cavaliers. Frye’s no superstar — his wins added are modest despite his impressive RPM because he logged only 17 minutes a night in Orlando, a number that isn’t likely to increase given Cleveland’s existing frontcourt situation. But he’s in what’s historically been a sweet spot for deadline pickups: He’s coming to an existing title contender at very little cost, where he’ll be asked to fill a specific (yet important) role. There are no guarantees on the NBA trade market, but low-risk/moderate-reward moves like the one the Cavs made to grab Frye are often the deadline deals most associated with solid playoff outcomes.

Thornton2011SAC2.4+1.2-1.1Missed playoffs Source: Basketball-Reference.com Unlike last year, the 2016 NBA trade deadline was a bit of a snoozer. Nineteen players were dealt on Thursday, deadline day itself — the 12th-most since 1987. In the traditionally busy two weeks leading up to the cutoff, however, only seven others were moved, which means the raw activity around this year’s deadline was basically average. Quality wasn’t exactly bursting out over quantity, either. As a group, the traded players averaged almost exactly zero wins above replacement per 82 games this season, the eighth-lowest rate among trade deadlines since ’87. (Of course, it could be worse — sometimes an entire crop of trade targets can average out well below the replacement level, as happened in 1992.)Most of this year’s trades were made by teams jockeying for playoff position (Charlotte’s Courtney Lee pickup comes to mind), collecting future assets (Detroit snagged Tobias Harris and Donatas Motiejunas in separate deals this week) or dumping disgruntled players (Markieff Morris and Lance Stephenson were sent packing by the Suns and Clippers, respectively). These are the kinds of incremental moves that help a franchise in the long run. But nobody would characterize them as blockbusters, and hardly any involved the handful of teams that have a chance to win the 2015-16 NBA championship.If any contender received consensus praise at the deadline, though, it was Cleveland, which snagged Channing Frye for Anderson Varejao, Jared Cunningham and a couple of draft picks. The advanced analytics have always crushed hard on Frye — he currently ranks eighth among power forwards in ESPN’s Real Plus-Minus, ahead of Anthony Davis (!) — with his classic stretch-big mix of long-distance shooting, decent-enough rebounding and surprisingly solid defensive metrics. (To that last point, RPM actually thinks Frye’s defense is a far bigger contributor to his bottom-line impact than his offense.) Let’s face it — nobody will be shocked if Frye ends up hitting a huge shot or two for the Cavs during what’s probably going to be another deep run in the Eastern Conference playoffs.And when it comes to deadline pickups, players like Frye often make a more indelible postseason mark than the types of big-name superstars everyone was hoping to see moved Thursday, anyway.Statistically, the best deadline acquisition of the past 30 years1Including players acquired within two weeks of each season’s deadline. was Clyde Drexler — clearly not a role player, even in his twilight — who produced 5.5 WAR for the Rockets after getting shipped to Houston for Otis Thorpe in 1995. Drexler went on to help Houston capture its second straight NBA title, but that makes him an exception among hyper-productive deadline pickups: T. Kukoc2001ATL2.2+5.0-8.9Missed playoffs P.

The Ohio State poster child How Joey Lane made his dream a

Ohio State senior guard Joey Lane (14) throws his arms up for the crowd to cheer at the end of the game against Iowa on Feb. 26. Ohio State won 90-70. Credit Cori Wade | Lantern PhotographerEvery pregame ritual is the same for Joey Lane.He leads Ohio State onto the court, bouncing a basketball violently against the court as soon as his feet touch the hardwood.As the lineups are announced, he makes his way to the post area, greeting each starter with a handshake, custom-made for each one.Lane then makes his way to the end of the bench, a familiar home to the senior guard. He knew, when choosing Ohio State, he would forgo an opportunity at significant playing time. But Lane was fine with that.As tip-off nears, “Joker and the Thief” by Wolfmother begins to ring in every corner of the Schottenstein Center. Lane, physically pushing his fellow teammates, begins to jump up and down to the beat of the song, waving the towel that usually lives around his neck.What Lane has coined as the “towel gang” is not unique to Ohio State. The senior guard said he stole is from another school, a school he would not disclose.But what the “towel gang” represents to Lane is unique: It’s his role for Ohio State. A role that has remained for four seasons and survived a coaching change, a losing season, an NCAA Tournament run.And it’s more than just to be a walk-on. It’s more than running the scout team or pumping up his teammates. It’s more than just a name for the student section to chant when the Buckeyes have an insurmountable lead.Lane’s role is to be the best teammate he can be, a teammate he will be for the final time at home Sunday.  This was Lane’s job, the role he was given. A role that, when asked about fulfilling for the final time at Value City Arena, made him break down in tears and embrace senior guard C.J. Jackson and redshirt senior guard Keyshawn Woods. It was a role he never thought he would have.Clad in scarlet and gray from an early age, Lane grew up watching Greg Oden, Evan Turner and Aaron Craft, who he took as his favorite player, adopting the Buckeye guard’s No. 4 jersey as his own at Deerfield High School in Deerfield, Illinois.Lane wanted to be like Craft, but was also trying to be realistic, viewing this hope as too far-fetched.“The dream was to play here,” Lane said. “I never thought in a million years as a 5-foot-9 guy my junior year of high school that I would ever be able to do that.”But he got his chance.As a senior at Deerfield, Lane was named captain of the basketball team, allowing him the decision to choose where his team could train over the summer. So he chose an Ohio State basketball camp, giving him the chance to play on the court he watched as a fan throughout his childhood.Lane and his team excelled, going 8-0 during the camp and putting the Ohio State coaching staff on notice.  At first, the conversation revolved around finding the right school for Joey, looking for a Division-II or Division-III school that gave him the opportunity to play regularly.Ohio State senior guard Joey Lane leads the Buckeyes onto the court prior to the start of the game against Maryland on Jan. 18. Ohio State lost 75-61. Credit: Casey Cascaldo | Photo EditorLane flipped the script, shifting the conversation to finding out if there was any chance to live out his far-fetched dream. Ohio State head coach Thad Matta made that dream a reality, naming Lane as the first preferred walk-on in program history.“I’m forever indebted to the guy because he gave me the chance,” Lane said.After Matta’s departure from the program, that love could have been quickly taken away with a new coaching staff.Lane was granted a scholarship in his first two seasons at Ohio State, what his father Scott referred to as a “one-year deal.” With a new coaching staff, a scholarship for a walk-on was not guaranteed.Chris Holtmann had never met his inherited preferred walk-on. But the former Butler head coach knew what his impact had been.In their first meeting, the newly named Ohio State head coach reassured Lane he had a major role to play moving forward, using a word Matta and his staff had never used when talking about him: leadership.“They said, ‘You know what, the fact that you care so much about the university, that means something,’” Lane said. “That resonated with them.”According to Lane’s mother Nancy, one of Joey’s former coaches told him, “Know your role and be the best at it you can be.” From that moment forward, Lane embraced that role.Morphing into whatever opponent the Buckeyes will next see, he began to lead the scout team — preparing the team for its upcoming opponent in practice and allowing him the opportunity to get out of his shell, shooting really deep shots or even posting up in the paint.“Throughout my four years, I’ve been Denzel Valentine, I’ve been Carsen Edwards, I’ve been anyone that you can imagine,” Lane said.Lane became engrossed in game plans and scouting reports, calling out his teammates when something did not go as planned on the court. The walk-on did have an increased opportunity to use that knowledge on the court during games more than he had in Matta’s tenure. In his junior season, Lane played in seven games for 20 minutes, matching his career total, but made only 1-of-7 attempts from the field. But this was not Lane’s priority. He had accepted the position he was in. “Any playing time I got was gravy. I never in a million years thought I would play significant or meaningful minutes,” Lane said. “I never worked any less hard because I never thought I would be playing.” Instead of making an impact on the court, Lane began his attempt to extend his legacy passed his four seasons of eligibility. Prior to the start of the 2017-18 season, then-redshirt senior guard Andrew Dakich was looking for a school with which to end his collegiate career. As soon as he stepped foot onto Ohio State’s campus, he was introduced to Lane, who showed him around campus, grabbing a meal with him and incoming freshman forward Kyle Young.“I didn’t really know him at all before I got here, and he was really comfortable,” Dakich said. “He’s easy to talk to. That first moment, we kind of started to become teammates.” With his love for the university and with what Dakich calls an enthusiasm and energy unique to the walk-on guard, Lane took an important part in helping build the future for Ohio State, being called to host about every recruit that visited. When he recruits, Lane said he does not try and push Ohio State on the high school players. Instead, he said he talks about how special of a place he thinks Ohio State is. “I love Ohio State. I would sell my soul for Ohio State, and that’s what I try and do to these kids,” Lane said. Holtmann said Lane has been a tremendous recruiter for the Buckeyes, calling him a great advocate for the university, having the ability to successfully convey the message of the program to recruits and their families. But talking to recruits on visits, Lane wants to make one thing perfectly clear. “Their life will be a lot better than mine,” he said. This is the aspect that makes coaches, teammates and those around Lane believe why he has found success at Ohio State: his relatability. “He’s like the Ohio State University poster child,” Nancy Lane said. “It’s his dream school and he’s living out his dream.” Dakich, now a graduate assistant coach for Ohio State, calls Lane the connector with the student section, building the relationship between the men’s basketball team and the fanbase, becoming the face of a team he does not play much for. But that does not mean this fanbase does not want him on the court. If Ohio State holds a seemingly insurmountable lead at the end of the game, Dakich, Holtmann and the rest of the coaching staff know what is coming. Ohio State senior guard Joey Lane (14) sings “Carmen Ohio” with teammates after their game against Cleveland State on Nov. 23. Ohio State won 89-62. Credit: Casey Cascaldo | Photo Editor“We want Joey. We want Joey.” It was a chant Lane thought about on the bench prior to the Northwestern game on Feb. 20. When it began to happen, as thousand of fans began to chant his name with the Buckeyes en route to a 63-49 victory, Lane thought it could be one of the last times he heard it. “It’s a hard feeling to put into words because it’s dumb, but it’s awesome at the same time,” Lane said. “First of all, it means we are winning, which is very important.  But it also means they care about me, they like me, they see what I am doing and they appreciate it.” For Lane, the chants have worked more than they ever have before. In his final season, coming into the final regular season game of the season, the senior guard has played in 13 games for 35 minutes, hitting 4-of-6 from the field, including 3-of-4 from 3. But to his parents, those chants are validation. It makes them feel like their son, who could have had way more playing time at a smaller school, made the right decision. “We raised our kids to be good people,” Nancy Lane said. “To do the right thing, to be a good friend, to be a good teammate and to put others first. When you see other people embrace that, it’s powerful.” For Dakich, Lane signifies everything a program wants in a walk-on. For Holtmann, Lane has earned the right to be praised, to have his name chanted to come into the game. “He’s really easy to care about, easy to like, easy to want to see him be successful,” Holtmann said. “He’s easy to root for.” But for Lane, it’s just another aspect of his role. It’s being the same guy he was in high school no matter the playing time he receives. To be the positive reinforcement, the teammate, the friend on the bench. To have the custom handshake with each player, to bounce up and down to “Joker and the Thief” courtside as the ball is tipped. It’s a role that he will have at the Schottenstein Center one final time Sunday, the last time he will lead Ohio State onto the court, bouncing the basketball violently against the court as soon as his feet touch the hardwood. It’s something Lane has not thought about much. But it’s something he said will be surreal. “I’ll definitely have to soak it all in and look at my family, that’s for sure,” Lane said. “It will be pretty darn cool because it’s somewhere I never expected to be.” read more

United lack leaders – Keane

first_imgFormer Manchester United captain Roy Keane says there are no leaders in the current squad and believes that Jose Mourinho has no trust in his players.United have had a poor start to the season, leaving Mourinho and key players under pressure and intense scrutiny.The Red Devils are currently 16 points behind Liverpool ahead of their clash on Sunday and Keane believes the players should take responsibility for their season so far.“In my time at United, when you talk about trophies, you need, obviously, very good players. But I also felt we had really good characters, really good people. People you want to be in the trenches with,” Keane told Sky Sports.“I still can’t figure this United team out. The key, as well, to be a top player, is to do it week in, week out. I see United every few weeks and think, ‘yeah they’re looking not bad’. Then they look disinterested, which is no good for any of the big clubs.“I think they’ve certainly lost their way and I look at the lack of characters, the lack of leaders in the team and you come unstuck, especially in the big games.Jose Mourinho, Lionel MessiMourinho: “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.“When you’re a manager or working on the sidelines you want to be able to trust most of your players. I don’t think Mourinho has too much trust in a lot of United players.“He made a point against Arsenal last week when they drew and the standard of the game was really poor, he said in his interview after the game his big worry was every time the ball went in the box he felt like they were going to concede.“If you’re the manager sitting on the sidelines watching and you felt you were going to concede every time the ball went in your box, you’re in trouble.“So he definitely doesn’t trust his back four. People say he’s spent money on it, which he has done, but it doesn’t mean to say [he trusts them]. They’ve made mistakes. They’ve got to go and purchase four defenders.“But at some stage, the players have to take responsibility for it. I know people say Mourinho has to get the fellas on side, but we’re talking about a lot of international players here and if you’re on that pitch and you’re not looking after the ball or you’re sloppy in possession that does come down to the player. At some stage, your own pride has got to kick in, as a professional footballer.”last_img read more
