Fantasy football Week 8: Add and drop

Published by
The San Diego Union-Tribune

Each week I’ll list the best widely available free agents for fantasy football — I define “widely available” as being owned in around half of all ESPN or Yahoo leagues — and some guys who are probably better off in the free agent pool than collecting dust on your roster. Follow me on Twitter @UTEddieBrown if you have questions throughout the week. Here are my best bets off the waiver wire for Week 8: ADD — WR Allen Lazard, Packers (ESPN: 5%; Yahoo: 5%): Lazard was already trending towards fantasy relevancy with increased usage and a score in two straight games before Davante Adams landed on th… Read More “Fantasy football Week 8: Add and drop”

Alphabet revenue of $65.1 billion in the recently-ended quarter eclipsed the same period last year by some 41 percent, according to the tech titan, as its online ad engine and c… Read More “Google-parent Alphabet profit soars to over $18 bn”

The Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, tested: What a difference an AI makes

Published by
DPA

Even Pixel fans might have trouble recognizing the latest smartphone generation of Google phones. The new Pixel 6 and 6 Pro are, like previous phones, eye-catchers with soft pastel colours. But the enormous black camera array stretching across the entire back of the phone is an unfamiliar design feature to most fans of Google phones. It might be an eyesore to some, but nobody can deny it’s a statement of what Pixel phones are all about – the camera. The bold design with a camera array that sticks out by almost 3 mm will not be welcomed by everyone. But take it in your hands and you’ll likely b… Read More “The Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, tested: What a difference an AI makes”

Al-Araby

As the Gaza war raged and tensions surged across the Middle East last May, Instagram briefly banned the hashtag #AlAqsa, a reference to the Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem’s Old City, a flash point in the conflict. Facebook, which owns Instagram, later apologised, explaining its algorithms had mistaken the third-holiest site in Islam for the militant group Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade, an armed offshoot of the secular Fatah party. For many Arabic-speaking users, it was just the latest potent example of how the social media giant muzzles political speech in the region. Arabic is among the most common la… Read More “Facebook’s language gaps weaken screening of hate, terrorism”
