Wenger revals Arsenal starlet set for Premier League debut against Swansea

first_img Alex Iwobi 1 Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has hinted that he could give Alex Iwobi his Premier League debut against Swansea this weekend.The 19-year-old winger made his first-team bow on Tuesday night as the Gunners crashed out of the Capital One Cup with a 3-0 defeat to Sheffield Wednesday.In that clash both Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Theo Walcott picked up injuries, ruling them out of action until after the upcoming international break.And Iwobi is now battling it out with Joel Campbell to start on the right wing for the Premier League clash at Swansea on Saturday.“Campbell and Alex Iwobi [could play out right]. Santi can play there as well but he has become very important centrally,” said Wenger.“The problem sometimes is that you can destroy two departments if you move one player out. We control the ball better with Santi in the middle.”last_img read more

Watch Out! New Video Law Lets Netflix Share What You’re Viewing

first_imgTags:#Congress#Facebook#Government#legal#Netflix#privacy#security#Streaming video#television#Video Privacy Protection Act It passed the House, the Senate, and just before the new year, the President signed it into law. In a significant shift in video privacy – online video rental companies can now share information about the movies you rent or buy. As you might expect, things are about to get more social.According to the new law, companies have to ask only once. You can opt out, but if you don’t, say goodbye to the rights to your video data for two full years. As per the change, Netflix will introduce new social features that basically link users’ Netflix and Facebook accounts and share their viewing history with friends. Netflix was previously unable to do this in the U.S. by the 25-year-old Video Privacy Protection Act (VPPA), which banned the sharing of personal data for anything but law enforcement purposes (even now, Hulu remains in court for previously sharing viewers’ info). On the surface, sharing viewing history may not seem like a big deal, but the law undermines the privacy of Internet users, and takes away user control over significant amounts of potentially sensitive personal data. Looking back, it’s ironic this new law even passed, as the VPPA was originally enacted in the 1980s in response to a local Washington newspaper publishing a list of Supreme Court nominee Robert Bork‘s rented videotapes during his nomination process. At that time, Congress was up in arms over this privacy breach, which helped scuttle Bork’s appointment and led to the phrase “borked” entering the language. But less than a month after Bork’s passing on December 19, 2012, it seems that Netflix investment of roughly half a million dollars in lobbying Congress to update the law was enough to do the trick. The Privacy IssueAlmost one year ago to the day, Marc Rotenberg, the executive director and president of the Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC), testified in Congress against the bill, citing his organization’s interest in “supporting the rights of Internet users to control the disclosure of their data held by private companies.”“The debate over online privacy and Netflix does not exist in a vacuum,” Rotenberg stated at the hearing. “It is becoming increasingly clear that only privacy laws actually safeguard the privacy rights of Internet users.”In an interview with ReadWrite, Rotenberg said he urged the Senate Judiciary Committee to update the law with new safeguards. His warnings were not heeded. “Senator Franken (D-Minn.) and Senator Feinstein (D-Calif.) made some improvements to the House bill but it was still a step backward for online privacy,” Rotenberg said. So…is sharing bad for online privacy? The experts ReadWrite talked to seemed to think so.Jules Polonetsky, the director and co-chair of the Future of Privacy Forum, said the the real issue is that people don’t know they’re sharing. When that sharing is done without user consent and system settings are unclear, it’s bad for the public. “This is about the sharing of your records of video rental history, as opposed to on a clear, permission basis, enabling people to key-in sharing mode,” he said. “Sharing should be in a clear opt-in basis.”Polonetsky compares the risk to what social video sites Viddy and Socialcam did when they first launched, gaming the Facebook system so anyone playing those companies’ videos automatically alerted their Facebook friends to what they were watching. That accidental sharing is a major problem, Polonetsky warned.“I saw a rabbi I know sharing a fairly raunchy video about girls on bikes, falling off bikes… a conservative, corporate lawyer sharing a somewhat offensive video, none of them clearly understanding that by clicking on some filthy link shared by their friends, to see what the attraction was, they’d be letting hundreds of their friends know and sullying their reputation.”  Rainey Reitman, the Electronic Frontier Foundation‘s activism director agreed. She said the move is bad for the public because unclear sharing undermines the “strong legal protections put in place to protect video watchers… A major concern is that individuals will enable the function and not realize that it is continuing to broadcast their video watching habits to social networks – for years.”Selling Your Video History?Another potential problem stemming from the law, Reitman said, is whether video companies will use that information as a commodity and sell it. “Once data is combined with our social media profiles, it can be part of the data used by the online advertising industry for advertising purposes and we’ll be forced to rely on the often confusing privacy settings on social networks to protect our video watching history.”Polonetsky said that turning on this stream of sharing data on a service like Facebook would likely increase targeted ads. He added that although this change tot he law has been pushed by Netflix, not Facebook, social sharing is a huge business driver, and ultimately a win for that site. “Generally [Facebook’s] motto has been, we want a lot of data so advertisers can reach you,” he said. “Facebook can and will make available what you’re doing, what you’re watching, what you’re reading, to be used to tailor ads to you on Facebook – and increasingly off of Facebook.”Not All Bad?The new law is not all bad, said Polonetsky. When it comes to sharing information people do want known, like live Television, sports and films while they tweet or post, it can be a boon for both users and entertainment companies. But it’s only positive if people have an on-off switch, and awareness of what they’re sharing.“If you can actually draw together the eyes now watching this video, this game, and comment, I think there’s a real positive,” he said. Still, he warned that the way the new systems get set up will be critical to the law’s long term effects. Again, the key is that people have to know the settings in order for the sharing to benefit them and not inadvertently spread information they’d rather keep to themselves. “It’s got to be cut in a way that very affirmatively makes clear that you are in sharing mode so there’s no cause for accidents. That’s UI design.”Polonetsky isn’t the only one who sees the glass half full. Privacy expert and attorney Alan Chapell of Chapell & Associates thinks the old VPPA law was out of date. He pointed to the fact that the law treated the video differently from other content, such as music services like Spotify, which are able to share. “The VPPA created a rule set that treated movie consumption differently from book and music consumption,” he said. “Drawing that type of distinction in a digital world doesn’t make sense. If a consumer wants to be able to tell friends, via Facebook or some other platform, which movies he’s streamed via Netflix he should be able to do so.”Chapell is right, people should have the right to share when they want to do so. But the underlying issue is that this new law creates a system where the public could easily end up sharing personal data without their informed consent. Photo courtesy of Shutterstock.

Man City back on top of EPL after Kompany wonder goal

first_imgSEA Games hosting troubles anger Duterte MOST READ Cayetano: Senate, Drilon to be blamed for SEA Games mess Leicester was also relishing the contest and it was the visitors who created the first serious opening when Ricardo Pereira skipped into the area and had his shot blocked by Kompany. Marc Albrighton’s follow-up effort was also charged down.City threatened as Foden chested down and volleyed at Schmeichel, then Youri Tielemans forced a low save from Ederson.Sterling raced behind the defense and flicked the ball onto Jonny Evans’ arm but penalty appeals were half-hearted and dismissed by referee Mike Dean.A sign of City tension came as David Silva was booked for a cynical challenge on Tielemans which prevented a breakaway from inside his own half.But City then started to take control, and Sergio Aguero hit the bar with a thumping header. Schmeichel did brilliantly to claw the ball off the line as it bounced down.City finished the half on top but there was another moment of alarm as Kompany was booked for bringing down James Maddison in full flow.City sent on Leroy Sane and poured all its efforts into attack after the break. City appealed for another penalty as Sterling went down under a Hamza Choudhury challenge but nothing was given and the Foxes almost caught the hosts out as Maddison flashed an effort wide.The tension increased and the anxiety was evident as Aguero was denied at point-blank range by Schmeichel after Evans miskicked.Then Kompany produced his first league goal of the season.“I didn’t score this season, but for me I always feel in big moments, in moments like this, I’m going to do something,” Kompany said. “I don’t know whether it’s a header or anything, I always feel like I’m going to do something. All I’m going to say is I’ve scored goals like that in training.” Ethel Booba twits Mocha over 2 toilets in one cubicle at SEA Games venue Rockets overcome Warriors anew, tie playoff series after trailing 0-2 View comments The celebrations from Kompany, Guardiola and almost everyone connected with the home side were exuberant and emotional but the game still had to be closed out.Hearts will have been in mouths when former City striker Kelechi Iheanacho got clear but he missed the target, and City held on.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next LATEST STORIES Hontiveros presses for security audit of national power grid “One more game,” Guardiola said. “We were seven points behind not long ago from Liverpool but we didn’t give up.“I know now is not (about) saying how good was the season, now is arriving first.

They were again missing the midfield composure of Fernandinho but made their usual high-energy start.Bernardo Silva and Raheem Sterling tore down the right and left flanks respectively and cut inside menacingly while Phil Foden, again trusted by Guardiola in another key fixture, was also lively.ADVERTISEMENT Private companies step in to help SEA Games hosting DA eyes importing ‘galunggong’ anew Few will have expected Kompany to shoot when the ball fell to him 30 yards out but he let fly with a powerful strike.“Vinny, I tell you, ‘No shoot!’” City striker Sergio Aguero was captured on television telling Kompany after the final whistle.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSPalace wants Cayetano’s PHISGOC Foundation probed over corruption chargesSPORTSSingapore latest to raise issue on SEA Games food, logisticsLeicester goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel had no chance as the ball swerved away from him into the top corner.Pep Guardiola’s treble-chasing side needed to win to retain control of their title destiny, and their 13th successive victory took them a point above Liverpool.
