Member of Gupta family branded a “fugitive from justice”

first_imgA member of the controversial Gupta family has been branded a fugitive by South African authorities after he failed to hand himself over on Thursday.Ajay Gupta through his lawyer had an agreement with the country’s Directorate for Priority Crime Investigation that he would surrender to help with investigations into the Estina Dairy Farm in Vrede in the Free State.He was due to appear in the Bloemfontein Magistrates Court today and he failed to do so.Ajay’s arrest warrant came on the back of Jacob Zuma’s resignation on Wednesday.The Gupta’s – a wealthy Indian-born South African family – have for long been accused of engaging in corrupt deals with President Jacob Zuma.They family has also in the past been blamed for unexpected cabinet reshuffles, as Zuma critics alleged that he had given them power to run the state.In March 2016, then-deputy Finance Minister Mcebisi Jonas said that a member of the Gupta family had offered to promote him to the minister’s post in 2015.The Guptas denied the allegation, also rejecting accusations by former ANC MP Vytjie Mentor that she was offered the key post of public enterprise minister during a meeting at their Saxonworld mansion in 2010.Mentor said that Zuma was present at the mansion when the offer was made, though the former president denied the allegation.last_img read more

Eurekster Back Up After 10 Days Offline; Rumors That Google Behind its Decline

first_imgTop Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting On May 22 we reported that Eurekster, a custom search engine provider, had been down for the past two days and users were wondering if the company would be back. Tonight an alert RWW reader spotted that Eurekster has returned to the land of the living. A blog entry dated May 30 from Eurekster states that “we’re happy to let you know that our service has been fully restored and all your swickis should be back up and running again.”There’s no official word yet on why Eurekster went down for over a week. Eurekster provides a service called a Swicki, a search function that lets site owners identify what other sites in their community they would like to have included in their Swicki search results. We’ve used Swicki here at ReadWriteWeb in the past (disclosure: it was a paid sponsorship arrangement, as it was also on some other top tech blogs). For its user base, the company offered revenue sharing from search ads. Many users had built up a nice revenue stream from the service. In the comments to our previous post, there was some interesting feedback from some of those users.RWW commenter TomYam, who appeared to be a loyal Swicki user, theorized that Google was to blame for Eurekster’s sudden drop in fortune:“…one of the big reasons why they have dropped is probably because Google made an change in their search algo and what to keep in their index at the end of Nov 2007. And basically all swicki “subdomains” dropped out of Google index. From 2 million indexed swickis to currently 300.000.”TomYam went on to outline how he was making money from swickis (and note we have no way to verify if this is true, but it does show the potential that swickis have as custom search engines with a revenue stream):“Trust me I know this since I monitored my swickis on daily base and was trying to build up a nice portfolio of swickis on “many” different topics that I came up with while watching TV and reading magazines.I started creating swickis in September 2006, and basically continued doing them until January 2008.During 2007 i managed to climb from a few cents per day from Adsense to a couple of days in December when I finally broke 100$/ day barrier.And then first week in December 2007, they they made the decision to drop adsense revenue for any swicki that was not in their index.And guess what I only had 3 in there. Never occurred to me to ask them to add my swiciks as the first ones popped up there automatically.So my +2000 swickis suddenly dropped from a nice +100$/day to not even 1$/day…… and they were really showing a nice pace towards even 200$/day.1 swicki maybe gave only 0,03$, a few gave 1$ per day, but you add upp +100 swickis that have 10-30 visitors a day then is suddenly picks up.I made 4300$ from adsense revenue from my swickis during 2007, and was already looking for a prosperous 2008.Talk about wasted time from my side, to promote and submit my swickis and giving “eurekster” linkpower over the +1 year that I was doing daily management of my swickis and creating new ones.So for now I have not touched or tried to promote them over 6 months. It’s going to be interesting to see what happens.If they would allow the Adsense or other revenue back on for any created swicki, then I might be interested to promote them again as it would be worthwhile.Go to http:// shoutouts .swicki .com – and you will see that they are “working on it…2006 and 2007 I thought this was a nice way to make some extra $$$ in the years to come. Now……. Nope.Luckly I have other income sources and no debts….But that is life.. It sucks.Now is time to concentrate on new ventures… Time for Poker News in Asia.”Another commenter, Kim Remmington, also thought Google was to blame:“Looking at the chart above its obvious that Google thought that most of the swickis were spam. Eurekster basically said this in their blog. A lot of those spammy swickis were bringing in decent money. When you combine that with the incredible ease of making swickis, swicki farms and swicki universes, Google had something to worry about.”I personally don’t believe that swickis are spam, although it does sound like they attracted many ‘get rich quick’ types. I actually found the swickis I used to be very useful, highly targeted search engines. The RWW swicki for example was a great way to find focused news on web tech, not just from RWW but from other sources that I chose to include (e.g. other tech blogs).In any case, it’s good to see that Eurekster is back. And we’ll see if we can get to the bottom of the story for you!

Get completely right physically and he has to believe again in his qualities.”Not being able to perform at the same level as he was before could have given him certain doubts and then if you add the injuries then you end up with bigger doubts.”The results that United have had in the last few weeks are going to help him get back that confidence and from then he will have to push himself to reach the levels of performance that everyone knows he is capable of. Good players always find their level again.”I am convinced that Alexis has the quality to deliver for any team in the world and sooner or later he will be showing what he is capable of and become a very important player for Manchester United.” last_img read more

Baseball Lost A Potential AllTimer In José Fernández

The death on Sunday of José Fernández, one of baseball’s brightest young stars, who was killed in a boating accident off the coast of Miami, came less than two months after his 24th birthday. In his short time on Earth, Fernández had already been through a number of terrifying ordeals in attempting to defect from his native Cuba: three failed attempts (each of which led to imprisonment), and a successful fourth try — at age 15 — that required him to dive overboard at one point to rescue his mother from drowning in stormy waters.

He won Rookie of the Year with the Marlins in 2013, then battled back from an elbow injury to be the game’s best pitcher this season. He was a monumental talent, the magnitude of which only comes along a few times in a generation, and he played the game with flair and panache. Walter JohnsonSenators1355.125.76.12.00.11.7875 Clayton KershawDodgers716.117.89.43.50.63.0476 Major League players rarely die in mid-career, but those who do are usually quite young: more than 60 percent of the active MLB players who died since 2000 were Fernández’s age or younger. We’ll never know if prospects such as the late Oscar Taveras and Nick Adenhart could have gone on to become Hall of Famers someday, because they were lost so early in their careers. The possibilities were there, but they were still mostly unrealized at the time of their passing.In Fernández’s case, though, we have a pretty good inkling that he was on track for Cooperstown. Only 20 pitchers in modern history produced more wins above replacement than Fernández did through his age-23 season,1Although Fernández turned 24 during the season, FanGraphs assigns ages based on a player’s age on June 30 of a given year. and that’s not even considering the fact that he missed huge chunks of two seasons due to injury. On a rate basis, no pitcher had a better Fielding Independent Pitching mark relative to the league through his age-23 season than Fernández did: Dean ChanceAngels751.116.56.23.00.42.7976 Tom HallTwins455.19.08.53.70.72.9476 PER 9 INNINGS Dwight GoodenMets1172.232.58.22.60.42.4668 Best pitchers through age 23, 1901-2016 Minimum 450 innings through age-23 season.FIP = Fielding Independent Pitching, which judges pitchers on the stats they directly control, independently of a team’s defense: walks, strikeouts and home runs allowed.FIP- = A metric that comparesFIP to the league, where average is 100 and lower numbers are better.Source: FanGraphs.com José FernándezMarlins471.113.911.32.70.62.4364 According to Bill James’ similarity score system, the Hall of Fame pitcher most analogous to Fernández was a young Tom Seaver, who racked up parallel conventional numbers at the same age. (The two are also very similar by WAR, particularly according to Baseball-Reference’s method:2Which, as I wrote about recently, differs philosophically from that of FanGraphs. it says Fernández had 13.0 WAR through age 23, while Seaver had 12.8.) A two-time all-star by 23, Seaver went on to grab 10 more all-star nods, won 311 career games, made the Hall of Fame with the second-highest percentage of the vote ever, and was somewhere between the fifth- and 10th-most valuable pitcher in baseball history. And this is a pitcher who had only about half as many strikeouts per 9 innings through age 23 as Fernández did.(Even granting that today’s era is much more strikeout-heavy than Seaver’s, that’s nuts. At the time of his death, Fernández was in the midst of the fifth-best season ever in terms of strikeouts per 9 innings.)Of course, Fernández had also fought through a significant injury already in his short career, and history tells us that a lot can happen to a pitcher from age 24 onward. Cleveland Indians pitcher Herb Score, for example, began his career in 1955 with dominant statistics very comparable to those of Fernández and Seaver, but a serious injury two years later (he was struck by a line-drive) left most of his potential greatness unrealized. Every pitcher’s career is delicate, constantly on the edge of derailment, and all-time glory is never a given.But given what we’d seen out of Fernández in his first (and now, astonishingly, only) four MLB seasons, it was clear he was special. Like the deaths of Roberto Clemente and Thurman Munson before him, Fernández’s loss will leave a void not just of personality, but of Hall of Fame-caliber talent. The game only had a small taste of what Fernández could do. read more
