Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho questioned his players’ attitude after they were held to a 1-1 draw at home to promoted Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday.United have just one win from their opening three home games this season and already trail early leaders Liverpool by eight points.”Not a good performance, not a good result. A fair result,” said Mourinho, who praised Wolves, managed by his fellow Portuguese Nuno Espirito Santo.”Wolves, by the way they faced the game, I think they deserve it. They play like I like to play which is like the World Cup final,” he said.”That is the attitude I like my teams to have in every match. We didn’t have that. They did. That attitude made a difference,” added the former Chelsea manager.Wolves created three openings in the opening 17 minutes before Fred gave United a barely deserved lead.”They were in the game from the first minute. They play every ball with every second with the maximum intensity and desire and we didn’t. We started poorly, we started both halves at a low intensity. And it is difficult to win matches when you are not there,” he added.Asked whether he felt his players needed to learn that even against less fancied opposition they need to deliver the maximum effort, Mourinho was scathing.”Come on, this is something you learn when you are a kid in the academy, you don’t need experiences at the highest level to learn that. It is a basic law of football, you have to play at the maximum of your potential, unless you are playing in such a weak league against such weak opponents where playing at 30 percent of your potential is enough. We all know that is not the case (in the Premier League),” he said.advertisementMourinho said that after three straight wins – the most recent in the Champions League against Young Boys Bern on Wednesday – he was baffled by the performance.”I can’t explain the difference of attitude because I never had a difference of attitude. For me it is difficult to explain that. We won three matches away from home. We came back with a good spirit, in peace because we recovered,” he said.”We didn’t have a team that was in big trouble with an accumulation of matches. So yes, it’s a mental situation. An attitude. And again one team was coming to play the game of their lives, the other to relax.”(With Reuters inputs)
Most any content management system—enterprise or open source—is capable of basic social media functions such as commenting. But now publishers are looking for social media apps that offer a direct connection between their site and the broader social networks such as Facebook. “Two years ago, CMS was 80 percent of the focus, now maybe it’s 40 percent for a publisher,” says Dave Iannone, founder of Web development firm Go Forward Media (and architect of the FOLIOMag.com design). Many of the social networks are introducing both generic and system-specific applications to tie the CMS to their network. However, most of those applications are geared more toward open source rather than proprietary systems. Facebook Connect is an API that allows users to integrate parts of the Facebook experience into their Web site or mobile program. System-specific versions of Facebook Connect are also popping up, such as modules for open source systems like Drupal and WordPress. An article on social media blog Mashable talks about “8 of the Best Social Media Extensions for Joomla,” including the AddThis Button, which is a single method of adding major social media bookmarking and sharing applications such as Digg, Twitter and Facebook.Single Point of EntryInstant access through a single point of entry is becoming key. FastCompaany.com now allows users to sign into the Web site via the user’s Facebook account. “There are plug-ins that if you comment in one area, it let’s people know you commented everywhere else you have an account,” says Iannone. “That does away with the need for a ‘site account.’ You have to integrate in all these other places beyond what you are doing on your own site. You’re going to get more fans on Facebook and you’ll have a direct connection that’s way more valuable than e-mail.” ABA Journal, the association magazine for the American Bar Association, recently launched a program called Legal Rebels that features a standalone Web site with multi-media profiles of 50 legal profession innovators, as well as its own dedicated Facebook page for the program [see the full story on page 24]. However, the dedicated site also has links to major social media outlets such as Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Flickr embedded right into its CMS (Expression Engine). “It just involved signing up for each of the services (Facebook, YouTube, etc.) and adding a link on our site,” says editor and publisher Edward Adams.To keep up, some of the enterprise social media platforms such as KickApps and Ning are starting to introduce sign-on modules that can be used with sites powered by open source CMS such as Joomla, Drupal and WordPress. Social media remains a priority for most publishers but in the wake of failures of proprietary, standalone social media networks such as Variety’s “The Biz,” publishers are realizing that rather than creating community at their own sites, they need to be catching readers where they already are: Facebook and Twitter. Playboy started out building its own networking products on platforms like Ning, but now finds Facebook more cost efficient. “We’re putting more resources there and getting more response,” says director of online communities and social platforms Paul Thomas. The same is true for b-to-b publishers such as Bobit Business Media, which publishes Police. “Our editors didn’t think having a Facebook page would be worth it, but we did a search and found 600,000 users with ‘law enforcement’ in their profile,” says director of marketing and e-media Christine Oldenbrook. “We set up a fan page and had 100 fans overnight. Our editors will use it to push content while we market subscriptions through it.” Choosing Apps
Share your voice $299 Best Buy TVs Smart Home Mentioned Above Sevenhugs Smart Remote (Black) The Smart Remote U and X. Sevenhugs One could argue that remote controls are in the process of going away thanks to voice assistants such as Amazon Alexa. Logitech, the industry leader in universal remote controls, has noted this and even incorporates Alexa into its latest Harmony Express.For those who still hold affection for the venerable, no-voice clicker there are still some options out there. One of the wackiest is the Sevenhugs Smart Remote which uses “contextual awareness,” via a series of stick-on sensors, to tell what you’re pointing the remote at and then controlling it.A spokesperson for Sevenhugs has clarified that while the products don’t currently support Alexa or Google Assistant “the Sevenhugs remotes are voice enabled for future integrations with home systems”.I haven’t used the Smart Remote but it’s still unclear how the system would control components stacked on top of one another in an AV rack. If you a) don’t want to stick sensors on your walls or b) want to save a little bit of money, the newest version could be for you.The original Smart Remote is now the Smart Remote X ($299) and this makes way for the Smart Remote U ($199), which is more akin to the Logitech universal remotes. It doesn’t have the sensors, but the remote lets you swipe through your devices and control the one you want.The Smart Remote prototype my colleagues saw at CES 2016 only controlled three devices, but now the number of devices has grown to 650,000. Both devices have a touchscreen, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and can learn new devices via infrared. Set up the Sevenhugs Smart Remotes via the Smart Remote app for iOS and Android.
