Google is Beating Bing & Yahoo Again, Now In Real-Time Search

first_imgWhy Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Bing’s “real-time search” comes in the form of a special page for Twitter results. On that page you see a tag cloud of popular terms on Twitter, links shared regarding those terms and a few recent tweets in which each link appeared. It’s not very visually appealing. In fact, it’s downright ugly. It’s also not integrated extensively into the main Bing site.Search results on Bing come only from Twitter and links share on Twitter. There are a lot of low-value retweets displayed. Twitter is of course just a small part of the real-time web.Yahoo is MIAYahoo! on the other hand, displays Twitter as a tab in a select few news search results pages. That tab offers links being shared on Twitter, not tweets themselves. It’s very hard to find a search result that uses Twitter results, though, on Yahoo!Google Is The Winner So FarGoogle’s implementation, at least in this demonstration, brings real-time search front and center, displays commentary from Tweets, links being shared through a variety of channels and will soon display messages from MySpace and Facebook. It’s broader, the User Experience is better and it’s more prominent.Are There Still Alternatives?There are countless real-time search engines that have to be disappointed to see Google going its own way instead of acquiring a real-time search startup, and its unclear how many of those services still offer something unique that Google hasn’t now captured in this announcement. Aardvark is one and its now reported that Google is looking to buy that company.We’ll still await the full public roll-out of Google’s real-time search, its integration with the company’s new Social Search, with localization and personalization. So far it looks like Google has done what neither Yahoo! nor Bing have, though – create a compelling, serious real-time search experience. marshall kirkpatrick Tags:#NYT#Real-Time Web#web A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Google unveiled its real-time search interface today and it looks much, much better than what rivals Yahoo and Bing have done so far. The new Google real-time search functionality will appear on selected search results pages, below News results, above or below top ranking natural search results – sometimes just above the fold of the page. The new type of results are well-integrated, unobtrusive, diverse in contents and formatted simply. It appears to be a job very well done. It’s hard to believe that neither Yahoo nor Bing have created an experience anywhere near as compelling.Bing is a Bummer Related Posts Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Marketlast_img read more

Federer passes five-set test to advance at US Open

first_img“I think this is going to give me a lot of confidence,” Federer said. “It’s important to go through all of these emotional roller coasters early. That pressure is not fun but it’s what you have to go through.”The match was Federer’s first since losing the Montreal final to Alexander Zverev nearly three weeks ago. He withdrew from Cincinnati with a sore back the following week.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSSEA Games: Biñan football stadium stands out in preparedness, completionSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSBoxers Pacquiao, Petecio torchbearers for SEA Games opening“I was worried in the beginning from my back issue from a couple weeks ago but I loosened up,” Federer said, calling his back “extremely well” and adding “it’s only going to get better from here.”“To get through a five-set match you’ve got to be healthy. I believe this is going to give me great confidence in my game and my body.” Celebrity chef Gary Rhodes dies at 59 with wife by his side NEW YORK, NY – AUGUST 29: Frances Tiafoe congratulates Roger Federer of Switzerland after their match on Day Two of the 2017 US Open at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center on August 29, 2017 in the Flushing neighborhood of the Queens borough of New York City. Clive Brunskill/Getty Images/AFPRoger Federer made a narrow escape in a tense five-set thriller Tuesday, sorting out worries about a back injury and poor preparation to reach the second round of the US Open.The 19-time Grand Slam champion outlasted 70th-ranked US 19-year-old Frances Tiafoe 4-6, 6-2, 6-1, 1-6, 6-4 in a shockingly tough battle that boosted his hopes of a deep run on the New York hardcourts.ADVERTISEMENT LATEST STORIES Robredo: True leaders perform well despite having ‘uninspiring’ boss PLAY LIST 02:49Robredo: True leaders perform well despite having ‘uninspiring’ boss02:42PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games01:44Philippines marks anniversary of massacre with calls for justice01:19Fire erupts in Barangay Tatalon in Quezon City01:07Trump talks impeachment while meeting NCAA athletes02:49World-class track facilities installed at NCC for SEA Games Tiafoe was disappointed he could not stay atop Federer after breaking in the opening game.“He won by the skin of his teeth,” Tiafoe said. “I felt like when I was playing well, I was controlling most of the rallies. When I was hitting the ball big, he wasn’t really doing much except staying steady with me.”But that was enough. Federer has not made a first-round exit in a Grand Slam since the 2003 French Open and has never lost an opener on the New York hardcourts. But Tiafoe tested him.“It was more than a test,” Federer said. “It was exciting. It’s why I came to New York as well, to go through these emotions.”It also was Federer’s first match under the $150 million Arthur Ashe Stadium roof that became operational last year.“To see the new addition of the sliding roof, it’s wonderful,” Federer said. “I’m the lucky guy who got to play through the rain so I’m very happy about the roof.”Asked about the noise level with the roof closed, an issue that drew complaints from top-ranked rival Rafael Nadal, Federer said, “When you guys get going it’s even a better atmosphere than we used to have.”“I expected worse because I heard comments like this. I didn’t think it was that bad and when the crowd got into it, it was really cool… I felt like the energy was back in the building again. It was a lot of fun playing in that atmosphere.”Nadal and Federer have never faced each other at the US Open but could meet in this year’s semi-finals.And Federer is the only player who can dethrone Nadal as world number one at the US Open.

PETE MAKES EVERY POST A WINNER

first_imgThe Family ties are strong for many competitors at the X Blades National 18 Years and Under Championships, but QSST’s Peter Norman has a greater family affinity with the game than most.Peter’s parents Greg and Kerry Norman are former National Open World Cup representatives.Greg is a former Australian Men’s and Mixed Open representative, and Kerry is Australia’s most capped National representative having played, coached, or managed Australia a record 78 times.She is in the Hall of Fame and is the current coach of the Australian Women’s Open team who won the FIT World Cup in Stellenbosch South Africa in 2007.Peter 16, is no slouch himself and is racking up some very impressive statistics in terms of his young career.Peter is the only player to have represented Queensland at every available schools age division since he was 10 years old and has an unbroken seven-year tenure in the maroon and white.Peter took the Queensland representative record away from National Rugby League star PJ Marsh, who held the record of six consecutive years representing Queensland at schools level before Peter snared the mark in 2007.Kerry, ironically was the manager in one of PJ’s early representative teams and she and Peter had a chance meeting with PJ last year on a visit to Sydney, and the Eels hooker joked that Peter deserved the record because “I had to repeat grade 12”.Peter is proud of his record wearing the Queensland colours and also of his parents.“Mum and Dad have done heaps for me and I am very proud of what they’ve achieved. It’s awesome to think that I’ve done ok and achieved some good stuff, but I still have a long way to go,” Norman said.Peter has enjoyed an exceptional 2007, starring for Sharks at the NTL in March, leading South Coast at the QSST Open Championships in April, performing well at the National Youth Camp in July, and winning a South East Queensland Touch League Premiership with the Southern Storm Men’s Open team just last week.The only downside for Peter, was a bout of pneumonia that laid him low for 4 weeks, and included a week’s stint in hospital in August.Pete is back fighting fit now, in fact when the talented youngster completes his duties with Queensland tomorrow afternoon (hopefully with a winning grand final appearance) he will be making his way to Port Maquarie to contest the 2007 National Body boarding Championships Sunday morning.Pete finished 5th in the 2006 National Body boarding Championships and will be looking to go better in 2007, despite backing up from his week of Touch in Coffs Harbour.“I’m looking forward to it, it’ll be tough to back up, but I like challenging myself and it’ll all be good. Mum’s coming, she reckons Bodyboarding is like watching paint dry compared to Touch, but she is really supportive. Dad’s in Europe at the Rugby World Cup, but he is checking in with me to see how we’re going, so hopefully we’ll have some good news for him tomorrow afternoon,” Peter said.Peter has played a starring role for QSST with his intelligent ball play, robust defence, and mature talk on the line being a feature of an improved showing from the QSST team in 2007.last_img read more

Rep Barrett supports more class career choice for students

first_img Categories: Barrett News 04Apr Rep. Barrett supports more class, career choice for students A Merit Curriculum bill package was recently approved by the state House of Representatives, giving students and their families added options toward graduation and post-high school career preparation.“This legislation gives more control to students while also helping our state gain more professionals in skilled trades and information technology,” said Rep. Tom Barrett, who is a co-sponsor of the four bills. “On a student-by-student basis, our education system is based on preparing high school students for life after graduation. This legislation helps make that a reality while allowing more choices for classes that qualify for graduation.”The four bills in the legislative package will allow statistics, computer coding and a certified safety program course to count toward graduation requirements, and give students an option to fulfill a 21st Century Skills requirement by completing a combination of career/technical education (CTE) or visual/performing arts courses.“Career options have changed a lot over the past 10 years, just as the demand for young professionals prepared in vocational education classes has increased, so our education system must adapt to that demand,” said Barrett, of Potterville. “This legislation will expand the path to graduation for many high school students by adding options to the required curriculum. My vote was to help our students today prepare for what’s available to them tomorrow.”House Bills 4315-4318 advance to the Senate for consideration.#####last_img read more
