Hughes ‘lines up £4m bid for Wolves keeper’

first_imgMark Hughes has pencilled in a £4m bid to take Wolves goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey to QPR, the Daily Star say.Manager Hughes is said to be planning to table an offer for the 25-year-old if Rangers stay up and Wolves are relegated.Hughes knows the Wales international well and is tipped to make a move for him as soon as the season ends.Meanwhile, Manchester City are reported to be planning to re-sign Daniel Sturridge from Chelsea in the summer.There has been speculation about Sturridge’s future for some time and the Manchester Evening News say City, who sold him to Chelsea three years ago, want to take him back to Eastlands.David Luiz has reportedly been ruled out of Wednesday’s Champions League semi-final clash with Barcelona and is likely to miss the second leg too.The Chelsea defender was declared doubtful for this week’s game after being carried off with a hamstring injury during the FA Cup victory over Tottenham at Wembley on Sunday.The Sun say Luiz will definitely miss Barca’s visit to Stamford Bridge as well as this weekend’s vital league game against Arsenal – and is unlikely to be fit in time for the Blues’ trip to the Nou Camp.And ex-Chelsea striker Nicolas Anelka has reiterated his desire to see Blues star Didier Drogba join him at Chinese club Shanghai Shenhua along with former Paris St-Germain man Selim Benachour.The Sun quote Anelka as saying: “I hope Benachour and Drogba will quickly join us.”Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

U.K. Police Will Use Twitter to React to Protestors

first_imgTags:#Government#social networks#twitter#web While some countries aim to stop revolution by cutting off access to services like Twitter and Facebook, others try to turn social media use on its ear and use these services to monitor its population. Late last month, the Egypt erupted in revolution and the government quickly shut off all social media, before shutting down the Internet entirely. China has taken a similar stance, banning sites like Twitter and Facebook for long periods of time, as an attempt to prevent protests, among other things.The U.K., on the other hand, has taken this opposite route. According to a story in The Associated Press today, police in the U.K. will use social media sites to keep track of protestors and respond accordingly.A report from a report by Britain’s police inspection body called for authorities to stem the large number of protests through monitoring of social media sites:Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of the Constabulary said police forces would have to focus on speed and communication as demonstrators turn to Internet sites such as Twitter to coordinate their actions.“Large numbers of protesters can be organized in hours and change their focus in minutes through the use of social media and mobile phones,” the report said. “Those responsible for commanding events must plan with this adaptability in mind.”The report singled out UK Uncut, a protest group organized quickly by Twitter users upset at the government’s plans to slash public spending and perceived tax avoidance by major British companies. The group has used social-networking sites to help coordinate their actions; the tools include a live mapping service intended to help protesters dodge police cordons.While some police departments have shown that they don’t know how to use Twitter, the Greater Manchester police force – one of the largest in the U.K. – led a Twitter experiment last fall wherein it tweeted every single call it received over 24 hours. As the experiment ran into rate limit issues (the number of Tweets one account can make in a certain period of time, to summarize it simply), it began creating secondary and tertiary accounts. It then strung everything together using hashtags.All that is to say, it looks like the U.K. police force may have the know-how. It also has the right idea if looking to prevent and quickly react to protestors’ moves is the name of the game. Despite Egypt’s best efforts to censor its populace, many found ways to communicate nonetheless. Is it better for a government that wants control to push communication from out in the open into secret, unmonitored channels? mike melanson Related Posts The Dos and Don’ts of Brand Awareness Videoscenter_img Guide to Performing Bulk Email Verification Facebook is Becoming Less Personal and More Pro… A Comprehensive Guide to a Content Auditlast_img read more
