The win means Williams will have at least one more competitive match before playing singles at Wimbledon as a wild card. The All England Club main draw begins on Monday.

It was at the Grass Slam where Williams was last seen competing in 2021. She was playing in the first round when she lost her footing and her right leg became deformed, leading Williams to retire Match.

Without competitive activity since then, she is ranked No. 1,204 in singles and was not among the top seeds announced by Wimbledon on Tuesday. Few will want to face him in the draw on Friday.

“I love tennis and I love playing otherwise I wouldn’t be here but I also love what I do off the court,” Williams said.

Williams – sporting three black spots on his right cheek – started the game slowly alongside Jabeur who marked his third Eastbourne appearance, having played singles in 1998 and 2011.

She served first – her opening serve was clocked at 90 mph (145 kph) and earned the first point after Sorribes Tormo’s answer sailed long – and held at 30.

Williams struggled at times in the first set and was exasperated after she was unable to get low enough for a Sorribes Tormo shot. It took 25 minutes before Williams hit a winner as his smash flew into the North Stand, ensuring a spectator could walk away with a souvenir.

Williams’ agility improved noticeably in the second set, although there were audible gasps from the crowd as she slipped dashing into the net.

She set a set point with a backhand winner from the baseline and led the game to a tiebreaker with a 102 mph ace.

Williams showed a desire to dive to his right to volley that could not be returned which created one of three match points. The victory was clinched when Sorribes Tormo missed a volley.

“It was so much fun playing with Ons,” Williams said in an on-court interview. “It was great. We had a lot of fun and our opponents played amazing. We were happy to stay there.

In singles, there was a big shock when top seed Paula Badosa lost 6-4, 6-3 to British wild card Jodie Burrage. Third seed Maria Sakkari was also eliminated, beaten by Anhelina Kalinina 3-6, 7-5, 6-4. Fourth-seeded Karolina Pliskova, a Wimbledon runner-up last year, was beaten by Katie Boulter of England 1-6, 6-4, 6-4.

There were second-round victories for defending champion Jelena Ostapenko and Beatriz Haddad Maia, who won back-to-back grass events in Nottingham and Birmingham over the past two weeks.

MLB Picks Today: Best Bets, Predictions, Odds, Parlays for Monday, June 20 https://manifest-angel.com/mlb-picks-today-best-bets-predictions-odds-parlays-for-monday-june-20/ Mon, 20 Jun 2022 13:58:20 +0000 https://manifest-angel.com/mlb-picks-today-best-bets-predictions-odds-parlays-for-monday-june-20/ Nine MLB games are scheduled for Monday, June 20 with plenty of money-making opportunities throughout the day.

Nine MLB games are scheduled for Monday, June 20 with plenty of money-making opportunities throughout the day. The winner of Cardinals of St. Louis versus. Milwaukee Brewers the game will be first place in National League Central, and you two, the best pitchers in the game, will take the mound when the New York Yankees (Gerrit Cole) facing the Tampa Bay Stingrays (Shane McClanahan). The highest running total of the day is set at 9.5 on DraftKings Sportsbook as the Boston Red Sox host the Detroit Tigers.

Here we’ll track all the top MLB picks based on odds and lines on DraftKings Sportsbook for Monday’s baseball action.

MLB pick for Monday, June 20

Cubs Moneyline (-110)

Monday Night’s Chicago Cubs winner vs. Pittsburgh Pirates The game is a complete draw according to bettors, and no pitcher is setting up for a big year in 2022. JT Brubaker is 0-7 with a 4.50 ERA for the Pirates, while Cubs rookie Caleb Kilian allowed 8 runs over 9 innings of work in his first two MLB starts. It’s a place where I will favor the best offense, and that comes down to the road team. Chicago ranks 13th in on-base percentage (.318), while the Pirates are 28th in that category with an OBP of .289.

Angels -1.5 (+100)

The Los Angeles Angels have gone eight straight games scoring less than 5 points, but they have enough of the throwing advantage against the Kansas City Royals that maybe it doesn’t matter. The Angels will rely on Noah Syndergaard, who has a 3.53 ERA, while Royals starter Kris Bubic has an 8.36 ERA. Even with their recent slump at home plate, the Angels still rank 19th in MLB in points per game (4.2), while Kansas City is 27th in that category (3.7).

Cardinals-Brewers Under 7.5 carries (-105)

It’s a great throwing game with the Cardinals starting Miles Mikolas (2.62 ERA), while Corbin Burnes (2.52) is pitching for the Brewers. Burnes has been particularly good against St. Louis, pitching 7 scoreless innings in an 8-0 win last month, and he’s allowed just 4 earned runs in his last five starts against the Cardinals since last season in 29 innings. of work.

Yu Darvish Over 6.5 strikeouts (+110)

The San Diego Padres The starter had a K/9 out of 10 in each of his first nine MLB seasons, but Darvish will enter with a 7.3 K/9. He’s starting to edge closer to his career average with 7 strikeouts against the Cubs of Chicago during his last timeout. He should be in good position for a long start against the Diamondbacksranking 23rd in points per game, and they average 9 strikeouts per game, which is the fourth most in MLB.

Inside a glamorous blonde’s plot to hold back her wealthy lover she met on a sugar daddy dating site for a $50,000 ransom ONE DAY after he ghosted her when she found out that he was MARRIED

  • Rachel Roche, 40, was given an 18-month suspended prison sentence for blackmail
  • Roche tried to extort $150,000 from a Perth businessman in early 2020
  • She said she was looking for a father for her children on Seeking Arrangement
  • After forming a relationship with the man, Roche learned that he was already married
  • After the man stopped contacting Roche sent nine emails asking for the money

A glamorous property manager tried to blackmail a wealthy businessman out of $150,000 after ‘ghosting’ him on a sugar daddy dating site.

Rachel Roche, 40, was charged in 2020 with the Perth businessman’s attempted blackmail earlier that year after he suddenly cut off contact with her.

The man cannot be named due to a national suppression order.

Rachel Roche (above), 40, was given an 18-month suspended prison sentence for trying to blackmail a Perth businessman $150,000 after ‘ghosting’ him on a dating site sugar daddy

Roche said she was trying to find a “father figure” for her children in late 2019 on a popular dating site: Seeking Arrangement.

Seeking Arrangement is widely known as a sugar daddy dating site.

Perth District Court heard on Thursday that Roche was under the impression the businessman was single and was shocked to see a picture of him wearing a wedding ring next to a WA minister, Perth now reports.

When Roche confronted the man about the woman in the photo, he confirmed it was his wife, but said he planned to leave her soon.

Roche said she was looking for a 'father figure' for her children on the infamous Sugar Daddy dating site Seeking Arrangement when she met the businessman

“She foolishly believed it,” Roche’s defense attorney Linda Black said.

However, the businessman suddenly “ghosted” (stopped all contact with) Roche.

Roche was devastated and suffered from an illness she believed to be a male sexually transmitted disease.

“She was angry and of course she behaved not only inappropriately, but illegally,” Ms Black said.

Roche (above) later found out the man she was dating was already married and when she confronted him about it, he blocked her on all social media

On January 3, Roche launched its blackmail campaign against the businessman and, within four days, sent nine threats to his work email address.

She demanded that the man pay her $150,000 or she would go public with their affair.

Roche also ordered the man to pay an additional $50,000 for each day past his deadline.

She signed one of the extortion emails with a #metoo.

Perth District Court heard on Thursday that Roche had been

Perth District Court heard on Thursday that Roche had been “devastated and angry” by the man’s sudden disappearance and had threatened to go public with their affair unless he paid her $150,000.

Prosecutor George Brett said the emails put the man in a dire situation where he had “a significant amount of money to lose”.

“He was in a Catch-22, he would either pay or risk his affair being disclosed,” he said.

“And there is a degree of malice and vengeance, and an element of greed.”

Judge Vernon said Roche would not immediately be imprisoned for her actions, but should have known she was doing something wrong.

‘You are not young, you should have known better. And you obviously threatened him with something that mattered to him — exposure,” she said.

Roche received an 18-month suspended prison sentence.

Jorge Mateo may not be knocking, but his glove makes him impossible to bench https://manifest-angel.com/jorge-mateo-may-not-be-knocking-but-his-glove-makes-him-impossible-to-bench/ Thu, 16 Jun 2022 13:00:00 +0000 https://manifest-angel.com/jorge-mateo-may-not-be-knocking-but-his-glove-makes-him-impossible-to-bench/ You probably know this, but a quick refresher: WAR is this funny composite stat based on runs: the runs you drive + the runs you produce on the basic paths + the runs you record in the field, all divided by the number of runs. takes for a team to win.

You probably know this, but a quick refresher: WAR is this funny composite stat based on runs: the runs you drive + the runs you produce on the basic paths + the runs you record in the field, all divided by the number of runs. takes for a team to win. (There is a little more to WAR calculation than that, but that’s the basic idea.) It all comes down to WAR, or how many wins you’re worth to your team as an individual.

The statheads assign meaning to WAR as follows. If you’re worth 0-1 wins in a single season, you’re disposable.

Between 1-2 wins: utility player.

2+: entry.

5+: All-Star material.

8+: rarefied air – an MVP.

Last year’s Orioles had only three players with WARs above 3: Cedric Mullins (5.7), John Means (3.8), Austin Hays (3.1). The 2019 team, four: John Means (4.5), Jonathan Villar (4.3), Trey Mancini (3.7) and Hanser Alberto (3.4).

Sixty-six games in 2022, and seven players are ready for 3+ WAR during the season: Cionel Pérez, Jorge López, Trey Mancini, Austin Hays, Cedric Mullins, Ramón Urías and Jorge Mateo. Mateo currently ranks as the third most valuable player for the Orioles in 2022, is worth 1.5 WARwhich equates to 3.7 WAR over a full season.

That’s perhaps surprising for a guy who hits just over Mendoza’s line. No one would mistake Jorge Mateo for a top notch bat. His .214/.249/.344 slash line is, well, ugly.

But in his defense, it’s a whole other story. The eyeball test and the analytic agree in this case. Mateo will do a room like this one, starting Tuesday evening. And the advanced data will confirm it: Mateo leads the league in range factor, recorded defensive runs (11), defensive WARand the double games turned.

All in all, he’ll probably save the orioles 28 tracks over the season. Among qualifying shortstops, it’s the highest rating in MLB. With 7.6 above-average defensive runs, he’s the second most valuable shortstop in baseball, behind Houston’s Jeremy Peña.

But if the defensive stats are flashy, the offenses are unfortunate. Fangraphs ranks him at -6.7 offensive carries over average, the second-least valuable shortstop at the majors.

Roughly speaking, if Mateo loses you 6.7 carries as a hitter and gains you 7.6 as a defenseman, what is he worth? An average shortstopmore or less.

Which is really unfortunate. Because he’s got so much talent, and because when Mateo makes contact, it’s solid. His batted ball data is promising: in percentage of barrel, Mateo ranks 15th out of 30 shortstops and the average distance on his batted balls is the fourth most of all shortstops. His sweet spot percentage is 42.5%, the best of any shortstop.

In other words, when Jorge Mateo bats the ball, noise, distance and good results often follow.

The problem is not putting the bat to the ball. Where Mateo really lets himself down is the controllable results: strikeouts and walks. At 32.5 percent and 3.9 percent, respectively, Mateo has the worst strikeout and walk percentages of any shortstop in baseball. He sees 3.72 shots per bat, compared to 4.18 for Anthony Santander and 4.22 for Adley Rutschman. Whatever the batting coaches at O ​​preach, it can’t be that.

Stop me if I’m Captain Obvious, but in Mateo’s case, it seems O’s coaches just have to keep preaching patience: Mateo has to hone his batting eye and pick his court. The strategy has worked so far for Santander and Ryan Mountcastle, two sluggers who both increased their BB% in 2022 and saw good things happen in the energy department.

Over the past week, Mateo has been on something of a mini hot streak, hitting .250 with two walks in 18 board appearances (hey, that’s a lot better than 3 walks in 84 AP over the past month). Yes, they were all singles, but that’s okay – Mateo can show zero power and still be a worthwhile investment. Again, he mostly needs to walk more and reduce strikeouts. The average shortstop hits 18-20% of the time. With a bar of 32.5% at the moment, Mateo still has his work cut out for him.

One small glimmer of hope I’d like to point out though: the defensive brilliance that Mateo has shown all year seems to be the product of regular playing time. Mateo didn’t put those numbers into his short stints in San Diego Where NYY. Prior to that, he had only played one full season of games at shortstop and there he was -11 in defensive points saved per year. From there to a rate of +12 in 2022, it’s a complete turnaround.

So the same could hold true to the plate. If consistent batting helps the bat go — not even bad to great, like his glove did, but just bad to OK — Mateo will be a player worth keeping. Watch for strikeouts and walks – these will be key to assessing his progress. As frustrating as he can be, Jorge Mateo is a player to watch.

Onymos raises $12 million to provide plug-in functionality for apps – TechCrunch https://manifest-angel.com/onymos-raises-12-million-to-provide-plug-in-functionality-for-apps-techcrunch/ Tue, 14 Jun 2022 12:01:07 +0000 https://manifest-angel.com/onymos-raises-12-million-to-provide-plug-in-functionality-for-apps-techcrunch/ Onymos, a “feature as a service” platform for application development, today announced the closing of a $12 million Series A funding round led by Great Point Ventures with participation from Benhamou Global Ventures, Engineering Capital and Industry Ventures.

Onymos, a “feature as a service” platform for application development, today announced the closing of a $12 million Series A funding round led by Great Point Ventures with participation from Benhamou Global Ventures, Engineering Capital and Industry Ventures. The funds will be invested in product development and ramping up Onymos’ go-to-market activities, according to CEO Shiva Nathan, as well as product and service development.

Nathan presented Onymos’ sales pitch via email: “The proliferation of software as a service creates complexity and a lack of visibility for businesses and their applications,” he told TechCrunch . “For a team of corporate engineers, the balance went from having to choose from a few long-term vendors to being overwhelmed by the myriad of choices. Even after choosing services, every app is at the mercy of trillion-dollar companies that sooner or later could deprecate those services, change their implementation, or introduce updates that are incompatible with your current build environment. We want to change this paradigm.

For Nathan, app development can be time-consuming and expensive. According to a 2018 Stripe investigation, the average developer spends over 17 hours a week dealing with maintenance issues such as debugging and refactoring. Additionally, they spend about four hours a week on “bad code,” which equates to nearly $85 billion worldwide in lost opportunity cost each year, Stripe estimates.

Picture credits: Onymos

Onymos aims to help developers offload some of the work by providing out-of-the-box functionality that can be inserted into new and existing applications. The platform offers login, biometrics, chat, data storage, location services, and notification modules that include necessary components including user interface, underlying logic, and server-side functions. necessary to process data in the cloud (for example, public clouds like Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform).

The promise of a maintenance-free and completely secure application development future with Onymos is probably too good to be true – every platform, no matter how holistic, has bugs after all. But what services like Onymos can offer is time to devote to other more important product R&D tasks, at least in theory.

“Companies can have their software developers spend time debugging critical cases in Meta’s Graph API for Facebook Login or leverage their creativity and knowledge to build real value-added capabilities that help their employers to earn. We think the choice is clear,” Nathan said. “The Onymos platform… takes the complexity out of application development by acting as an integration layer for software vendors and allowing customers to rely on a single endpoint. When companies use the features of Onymos, they don’t have to worry about OS and API updates, device compatibility, or maintenance.

“Feature-as-a-service” is an old idea, dating back at least several years. There is Localytics for social networks and Mapbox for localization. Storyteller lets anyone add Instagram-style stories to their own apps or website. Meanwhile, WorkOS offers developers enterprise features such as single sign-on and directory synchronization with applications.

Nathan sees expansion, especially in the area of ​​machine learning, as Onymos’ path to differentiation.

“We plan to expand our product portfolio into the machine learning space, introduce new end-to-end features, and support more development frameworks,” Nathan said. “What we’ve seen working with healthcare customers is that there’s so much need for optical character recognition and data extraction. These processes are still too time-consuming for businesses, and there is an opportunity to introduce new efficiencies.

Onymos currently has 30 people on its payroll and expects to have between 40 and 60 by the end of the year. To date, the company has raised $15 million.

UFC Fight Night returns this weekend from the UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada on Saturday, June 4 at 1 p.m. ET. There is an eight-fight preliminary card highlighted by a women’s strawweight bout between Felice Herrig vs. Karolina Kowalkiewicz.

Herrig goes into this fight with a career record of 14-9. She is on a three-fight losing streak and has fallen out of the women’s strawweight rankings. Herrig has been absent from the octagon for almost two years. She last fought in August 2020 when she suffered a first-round submission loss to Virna Jandiroba. Even with her losing streak, Herrig is the slight favorite with odds of -115 to DraftKings Sportsbook.

This will be Kowalkiewicz’s second time facing Herrig. They first met in April 2018 when she made the split decision over Herrig. Unfortunately for Kowalkiewicz, she has gone winless since. She’s been on a five-fight losing streak since September 2018. In her last fight, she suffered the first-round loss to Jessia Penne. Even with a win over Herrig in the past, Kowalkiewicz is the narrow underdog with -105 odds.

Thousands of volunteers, immobilized by the COVID-19 lockdown, recently revived a wealth of historic rainfall records from the UK and Ireland. Manuscript records note the rainfall sightings of landowners, socialites, and an array of enthusiastic citizens dating back to the late 17th century. Computer software cannot yet accurately decode handwriting, so human eyes were essential.

Volunteers looked at millions of rainfall records from across Ireland and the UK as part of the Rainfall Rescue project. This rain sheet tracks rainfall at a weather station at Forbury Gardens in Reading, England. Click on the image for a larger version. Credit: Met Office, DC BY 4.0

researchers with the Rains Rescue Project commissioned volunteers to manually transcribe 3.34 million observations to make the data available to scientists to study Earth’s past climate.

“We expected it to take months,” said Ed Hawkinsclimatologist at the University of Reading and lead author of the recently published study describing the effort. “We did it in 16 days.”

The documents contained enough data to extend detailed weather records back to 1836. In doing so, the researchers capped the driest new year on record for the region: 1855. “We rewrote the record books, if you will said Hawkins, “backward, not forward.

Rescued records inform climate science

High-resolution weather reconstructions combine weather observations with algorithms describing atmospheric physics to iteratively produce a near-hourly estimate of the global climate over the past decades or even centuries. They are a time machine for climatologists looking to assess long-term trends or interrogate past events. Historical data such as that recovered from the UK and Ireland can help validate a reconstruction, said Laura SlivinskyNOAA physicist and co-leader of the Twentieth Century Reanalysis Project (version 3), which generated a global atmospheric weather dataset covering the period 1836-2015.

Historical data documents some particularly extreme events, and it can help scientists understand why and how such events occur, said Drew Lorey, a climate and environmental scientist at the National Institute for Water and Atmospheric Research in New Zealand. “It’s really powerful because we can then look in our modern models for similar patterns that increase in the coming months and use that as an early warning system.”

Records from the past decades show that extreme weather events are becoming more frequent. “People have to make decisions now about building resilience to the weather in general and how that weather is changing,” Hawkins said. “We need to know what a 1 in 100 year or 1 in 200 year flood looks like.”

Holes need to be filled

“The further you go back in time, the fewer observations you have, the more work those observations have to do to bring the whole global estimate closer to reality.”

Climate reconstructions rely on a huge database of observations, most of which comes from the decades following the proliferation of satellites. Prior to this date, the data is patchy. “The further you go back in time, the fewer observations you have, the more work those observations have to do to bring the whole global estimate closer to reality,” said Slivinski, who did not participate in the recent study but works with Hawkins and Lorrey. on other projects.

Gaps in climate databases are particularly glaring in the Southern Hemisphere, where there is less land from which to make observations, Lorrey explained. These data rescue efforts are key to closing the gaps, he said.

Lorrey, who did not participate in Rainfall Rescue, leads the Southern Weather Discovery Project, which retrieves early 20th century weather records from stations in New Zealand and Antarctica and logbooks from ships sailing in the Southern Ocean. He and his colleagues described their approach to crowdsourced document scanning in an article published in Grounds. Volunteers have digitized nearly 250,000 sightings of the region to date.

Although data quality is a concern for the Rainfall Rescue and Southern Weather Discovery records, the numbers are strong, said Kevin Trenberg, a climatologist at the National Center for Atmospheric Research and lead author of the 2001 and 2007 reports of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. “An observation not made is lost forever,” he said. “And here a lot of sightings have been made.”

A shared experience

Outsourced weather data has benefits beyond science. Rainfall Rescue volunteers took to the project’s forums to talk about interesting notes they found in the archives, such as an entry from World War II that mentioned a bullet hole in the rain gauge. Sharing their experiences helped volunteers feel part of a community, Hawkins said. “There are so many great comments on message boards about people feeling helpful.”

Modern precipitation observers continue to provide valuable data. Ongoing initiatives such as the Community Collaborative Rain, Hail and Snow Network (CoCoRaHS) have been collecting precipitation data from volunteers in the United States for more than 20 years. The project gives people an outlet for their weather curiosity, said Melissa Griffinthe South Carolina CoCoRaHS coordinator.

And CoCoRaHS volunteers provide more than just numbers; reports filed during Hurricane Matthew in 2016 include comments about flooded streets and where animals moved to escape rising rivers. This information is valuable for distributing resources in an emergency or for estimating future water resources, Griffin said.

“You know that you provide data to your community and that your community uses [those] data,” she said.
