Amazon has barred employees from using the popular TikTok app on phones they use to access their work emails from.The notice was sent out to employees on Friday stating a potential cyber security risk from the China-owned app.Employees will still, however, be able to access the app through their Amazon laptop browser.When asked by reporters to comment on the decision, no answer was given.TikTok owned by Chinese internet giant ByteDance said in a emailed statement that they “still do not understand their concerns.” The company also stated that it would have been opened to dialogue with Amazon to address their concerns.TikTok has been working to distance itself from it’s Chinese roots to appease critics and even has since named Disney executive Kevin Mayer as the new CEO.They are also in the process of stopping operations in Hong Kong due to a new Chinese national security law that would require social media apps to provide user data to Hong Kong authorities.

Southampton: All-rounder Shakib al Hasan believes Bangladesh are capable enough to beat India, adding they will have to play their best in order to beat the Men in Blue in the next cricket World Cup fixture on July 2.On Monday, Bangladesh defeated Afghanistan by 62 runs and kept their chances alive of making it to the semi-finals.Riding on Shakib’s 51, the Bangla Tigers first posted a competitive total of 262/7 and then bowled out Afghanistan for 200 in 47 overs. The all-rounder picked up five wickets for 29 runs and was adjudged the Player of the Match.Against Afghanistan, Shakib Al Hasan also became the first Bangladeshi batsman to score 1,000 runs in World Cups. He also became the second player after Yuvraj Singh to score a 50 and take five wickets in a single World Cup game.Bangladesh now have seven points from seven games and need to win their remaining two matches against India and Pakistan to remain in contention for ending in the top four. Besides the two wins, Bangladesh will also need results of matches of other teams as well to go in their favour to make it to the last four stage.“They (India) are the top side. They are someone who is looking at the title. So it’s not going to be easy, but having said that, we’ll give our best shot,” Shakib said at the post-match presser at the Rose Bowl Cricket Stadium.In the 2007 edition of the World Cup, Bangladesh had knocked out India at the group stage and Shakib thinks his team is more than capable of doing it again.“Experience will help, but experience is not the end of the world. We have to play our best cricket in order to be able to beat India. They got world-class players who can take the matters on their own hand. As I said, we have to be at our best, and I believe that we are a capable enough team,” he added.The 32-year-old is currently the leading run scorer of the tournament. He has scored 476 runs and also 10 wickets to his name. And Shakib is happy with his performance so far.“It is very satisfying. It was needed. It was important from my perspective and from (the) team,” he said. “Luckily, I’ve been doing this, and very happy the way this tournament is going so far,” he added.Bangladesh now have a week’s break before their next game against India at Edgbaston which will be followed by their last league game against Pakistan on July 5 at Lord’s.

Trojan fans, I’m proud of you.I thought, after USC’s 49-10 blowout of Hawai’i in which sophomore wide receiver Marqise Lee took the first play of the entire season for a touchdown, you would all start booking flights to Miami and talking about how you couldn’t wait to beat down Alabama.I was all set to write a column more or less about how everybody needed to calm down. I was going to write about how the 2004 Trojans are the only preseason Associated Press No. 1 team to actually win the BCS Championship since 2000, and how only four teams have done it in the last 30 years. A mere 10 teams have done it since the Associated Press started preseason rankings in 1950.I was going to say that there is a lot of season left, a lot of football to be played, a lot of traps to be avoided. I was going to remind everyone that USC beat Hawai’i, not Alabama nor Oregon nor even Utah. I thought people would need a reminder that USC played just one game, against perhaps its worst opponent of the season, and that there were still 13 to go to get to Miami or Pasadena.And, to my surprise, fans agreed with the sentiment.I have had so many conversations with delusional people who claim there is “no way” the Trojans won’t win it all. The “BCS title or bust” mentality I have felt from many on this campus is ludicrous. I was afraid people legitimately expect that out of this team.Does the team have a chance? Of course, and a pretty good one.Is it something they should be expected to do? Never.“One down, 13 to go” is the perfect moniker for the grind that is a college football season. There is almost no room for error: chances are, one loss will derail USC’s championship aspirations. One injury, one bad call, potentially even one missed tackle and it can all come crashing down.So, Trojan fans, thank you for not getting caught up in the hype — too much, that is. Some of it is legitimate. Lee’s touchdown is a sign if there ever was one.Honestly, it’s perfectly fine to salivate over a colossal showdown of undefeated teams when Oregon visits the Coliseum on Nov. 3. And go ahead and dream of an unstoppable-force-meets-immovable-object championship game of USC and Alabama in South Beach. But remember that, for now, that’s what these matchups are: dreams.In high school, my basketball coach would ask us the same question before every game: “Why is this game the most important game of the season?”We gave the following answer every time: “Because it’s the next one on the schedule.”Ask anyone on this Trojan football team this week about any opponent besides Syracuse, and he will tell you his focus is entirely on the game ahead. I was worried Trojan fans were going to forget the simple fact that it won’t matter what happens in November or January if USC missteps against a lesser opponent before that time. But after the game on Saturday, I saw fans posting the team’s “prep not hype” motto on Facebook and Twitter. Those words are painted on the grass at the entrance to Howard Jones Field. The team sees them as they enter practice every day. Trojan fans are wise to remember those words this year as the hype grows and the preparation becomes all the more important. “Any Given Saturday” runs every other Wednesday.

The No. 9 USC men’s golf team is heading to Stanford to try and grab its fourth win of the season at The Goodwin, which runs today through Saturday.Sophomore Rico Hoey and freshman Sean Crocker will lead the Trojans as they take on a field composed of 22 other schools, with five from the Pac-12 — host and defending champion Stanford, Arizona, Oregon, Colorado and Washington State.The event kicked off for the Trojans at 7:30 a.m. this morning at the Stanford University Golf Course, a par-70, 6,727-yard course. Over the course of the event, teams will play a total of 54 holes, 18 each day. On Friday, the Trojans start play at 12:15 p.m. The tee times for Saturday will be determined by the team finishes in the first two rounds of play. The last time USC won the event was in 2008; former Trojan Rory Hie took home the individual title as well.In the Trojans’ last outing, they finished ninth with a 3-over 867 at the Southern Highlands Collegiate Masters from March 9 through March 11. Crocker led the team with a fifth place individual finish with a 7-under 209 (70, 67, 72) — his third straight top-5 finish.Crocker has had a fabulous start to his collegiate career. In his first nine outings, he has recorded a team-best 15 rounds in the 60s. He is currently ranked No. 5 in the 2015 Palmer Cup rankings. In June, the top six golfers from the United States and Europe in the final rankings will make up part of the 10 golfers chosen to participate in the Palmer Cup from June 12 through June 14.Crocker also leads the team in stroke average (69.81). In the last three outings, Crocker was the Trojans’ top finisher — something he’s done five times this season.Hoey has the team’s second-lowest stroke average at 70.38 and has shot 11 rounds in the 60s. An All-American in 2014, Hoey has five top-five finishes this season, his best coming at the Bill Cullum Invitational, where he finished second with a 12-under 204 (65, 67, 72).In the first watch list for the 2015 Ben Hogan Award — presented to the nation’s top men’s collegiate golfer from the NCAA Division I, II, III, NAIA or NJCAA — Hoey was one of 24 NCAA golfers chosen. Notably, Hoey is one of only seven underclassmen on the list.The other starters for the Trojans consist of seniors Paul Smith and Eric Sugimoto, junior Bobby Gojuangco and freshman Jonah Texeira.Smith’s season-best was a tie for third at the Gifford Collegiate-CordeValle with a 7-under 206 (67, 73, 66). He has had two other top 21 finishes.Sugimoto has put up two top-15 finishes, his best being a tie for ninth at the Southwestern Intercollegiate with a 3-over 216 (72, 76, 68).Gojuangco’s best finish of the season was a tie for seventh at the Bill Cullum Invitational with a 5-under 211 (68, 71, 72).Texeira, similar to Crocker, is having a great collegiate debut. With a stroke average of 71.89, he is third on the team. At the Bill Cullum Invitational, Texeira recorded an 11-under 205 (67, 66, 72) to finish third.Together the team will look to top their ninth place finish at their previous outing.
Facebook Twitter Google+ Frank Gbinije is always thinking about what his son can do to get to the next level. He’ll look at Michael Gbinije’s stats and keep up with the draft boards. He’ll tell Michael point blank what he thinks he needs to average in different statistical categories. He’ll admit that he believes Michael is more suited to be an NBA shooting guard as opposed to the point guard role he adopted at the outset of this season.Michael, by nature, would rather remain blissfully unaware. He’s fully wrapped up in a college career that will last anywhere from another week to another month. And the continuously ticking 106-day clock that separates him from his professional future is another world away for him.“At some point, you know what’s right or wrong as an individual,” Gbinije said. “So sometimes, I’ll listen. And if I like it, I’ll keep it in my mind. And if not, it’ll go in one ear and out the other.”He knows the importance of the approaching postseason, but doesn’t seem consumed by it. In his five-year college career, he’s been to the bottom rung of relevance in a sport he’s grown to be a star in.It’s a career that started with a diminished role as a Duke reserve. It continued with a transfer year on the bench. It was altered with a change in positions. And now it’s culminating in one dominant senior season. The 23-year-old has put away the inconsistencies that once defined his career and has completely redefined it in the past 31 games.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textGame No. 32, when Syracuse (19-12, 9-9 Atlantic Coast) takes on Pittsburgh (20-10, 9-9) in the second round of the ACC tournament on Wednesday, will be the biggest of his career. It may be the game that decides whether a season in which Gbinije has scored at least 10 points in every game, continues into the NCAA Tournament. It may be the game that decides whether his stardom gets to be viewed on college basketball’s most important stage.The moment is big and the stakes are high, but Gbinije doesn’t let it consume him.“I’ve been very lucky to have worked with the players that I’ve worked with. But there’s very few people that when they go through an hour-long workout don’t waste any reps,” SU assistant coach Gerry McNamara said. “And this kid, in any practice or workout we’ve ever done, he’s done everything to the full extent of his work.”Gbinije is not the type of person that goes into a shell after a loss. He won’t hang his head or mumble one-word answers to the press. Sometimes he’ll even crack a smile.After a loss to Pittsburgh in December he joked with a reporter that he was glad he asked about Tyler Lydon passing up open shots. When the Orange lost to Miami in January, he retold a conversation he had with a referee that made him angry to a media scrum. When SU lost to UNC on Feb. 29, moments after his bad decision possibly cost his team a game, he was stable enough to explain the thought process.The senior said he likes to take time to reflect on every game. It comes after the team talks following a win or a loss. And it comes after he talks to the press. It comes in what he calls “solo time.” A time when he thinks about the game on his own terms.He’s struggled, shooting 13-for-36 over a three-game stretch. He’s shot 11-for-18 and scored 34 points in a heroic senior day game against North Carolina State. Through his difficulties and his best games, he’s kept the same mental process.“I’ve been hard on myself in the past,” Gbinije said. “Now I’m just kind of, I don’t know, I’m just a positive guy in general. I like to reflect.”McNamara thinks that Gbinije’s entire season has been looked over because the Orange hasn’t topped any rankings and isn’t perched near the top of the ACC standings. But in terms of scoring, Gbinije has seen the most consistent success of anyone in the conference.He’s done it adapting to a new position. He’s done it meticulously watching freshman Frank Howard in practice, because Howard has five more years of experience as a point guard. He’s done it by sometimes sacrificing a shot-first mentality to be the captain of an offense.“It was the hardest thing to get the confidence to go with his skills,” Frank Gbinije said. “Knowing what he’s capable of and the type of talent he has, it took him a while. … It really was a slow start and a slow build up.”A year at Duke where he played just 111 minutes. A year on the bench preparing to be the backup point guard. A year coming off the bench. A year showing he had potential to be a team’s best player.Now he’s living in a final year where he’s the center of attention. And he can’t be blamed for letting the NBA talk go in one ear and out the other.Just two days before Syracuse was set to take on N.C. State on senior day, Gbinije was finishing shootaround in the Melo Center. The team was about to start practice. Tyler Lydon was finishing his practice shots. So too was Trevor Cooney on the other end of the court.Gbinije, though, was lining up opposite walk-on Evan Dourdas, taking him one-on-one to the hoop, the biggest smile on both of their faces. There was Gbinije, the star, the potential future NBA talent. And there was Dourdas, who sometimes travels to road games and watches from the second row of the bench in the Carrier Dome.Gbinije would take him off the dribble and then Dourdas would attempt to do the same. Amid a season where he’s the center of attention, Gbinije doesn’t act bigger than any person or any moment. He’s been that irrelevant player before, but now he’s continuing to establish his legacy as a Syracuse great.“I do like the sound of that, I can’t lie,” Gbinije said. “I’m living so much in the moment.” Comments Published on March 8, 2016 at 11:57 pm Contact Sam: email@example.com | @SamBlum3
Inter Allies have delayed Asante Kotoko’s push towards the Premier League title after defeating the champions 1-0 at the Accra Stadium on Saturday.The champions, serving temporal home ban arrived in the Capital were hoping to move 13 points clear in the title race with a win over the league debutants, but the Porcupine Warriors were undone in injury time.Safiu Abdul Fatawu’s freekick sailed into the top corner, beating goalkeeper Joseph Addo.And the win lifts Inter Allies from 14th position to sixth on the log and four points above the relegation zone though the bulk of the matches will be played on Sunday.Kotoko still maintain their 10-point lead after second-placed Heart of Lions also suffered a 4-1 thrashing in Cape Coast to Ebusua Dwarfs.The season has four games to go and the Reds need just a win to retain the title.
