IslandLOVE Island star Luca Bish has opened up about his "controlling behavior" on the show this year. The Brighton fishmonger, 23, said he rewatched the show after viewers complained about him to Ofcom. Luca admitted he didn't recognize himself during an argument with his girlfriend Gemma Owen and said he "went too far" in another clash with Tasha Ghouri, with fans slamming him for "misogynist behaviour". In a new interview with Grazia magazine, the show's runner-up said: "I've been watching parts. Addressing the allegations he displayed controlling behavior towards Gemma, he said: "If I look at it again I can put my hands up and agree - I was. Luca was upset by Casa Amor bombshell Billy, who claimed he had a connection to Gemma, which she denied. His frustration came to a head when Gemma danced for the boys in a show challenge, which the couple later rowed over. Luca explained, "If you feel that strongly about someone and then you still get into situations because they [producers] are throwing challenges at us, throwing new people in to play with your emotions and your feelings — I would really had it easy." Enough of that." He continued, "When you fall in love with someone you don't want another boy to come in and talk to them and vice versa. Luca also revealed that he has addressed public opinion about his actions with Gemma since he left the show.Luca said his treatment of Tasha was also atypical and he didn't realize he had been wrong until his parents clarified it when they entered the villa realizing what I had done.But bei The Tasha situation made me realize I had gone too far while I was still in. "If you make a girl cry, I realized I was wrong." and telling me I was wrong in my approach – nothing has hit or affected me like this before." Luca apologized to Tasha inside. He said, "I told her I was sorry for how I behaved. We have reconciled and a double date with Gemma and Andrew is imminent.

Future security in the silicon age

TOMORROW will not be like yesterday or even like today. Still, we can examine trends for principles on how best to equip ourselves for success. (Author: Gardener)

TOMORROWTOMORROW will not be like yesterday or even like today. In my day-to-day work as a Licensed Financial Planner in Malaysia, I use the abbreviation AI in three completely different contexts. Sharing these three with you, which term or strand of meaning intrigues you the most? Active income is the money you earn from paid work or the business profits you generate through personal effort. Artificial intelligence is that insane form of intelligence exhibited by self-learning computers, giving them forms of visual acuity, unguided decision-making ability, and even speech recognition. Alternative investments form the fifth asset class in conventional asset allocation, separate from cash, fixed income, stocks and investment property. This fifth asset class generally shows low or negative price correlations with the other four and includes investment segments such as hedge funds, structured products, private equity, foreign exchange and commodities. Our focus is on the second strand: artificial intelligence. I addressed it in my previous column, Increase Your Passive Income to Gain Financial Freedom (www.nst.com.my/lifestyle/sunday-vibes/2022/08/822080/money-thoughts-increase-your- passive-income -profit-financial). There I proposed five solutions that senior finance professionals in any national or local government could implement to improve the lives and retirement prospects of their constituents. 3. Use technology and artificial intelligence to accumulate wealth to help the elderly; 4. Steadily raise the retirement age to reduce the average time without earning money; and 5. Extend the workweeks of those who want to work harder and smarter to supplement their retirement nest egg. I made my five suggestions to national leaders for the long-term well-being of their people. For example, in relation to #3 – using technology and AI to increase personal wealth to sustain us in retirement – ​​we need to come face to face with the need to operate in the K (or knowledge) economy to be. Over the next 10 years, hundreds of millions of human jobs will be lost - not maybe, but WILL - to robots powered by their form of AI. Of course, in 2022 many new jobs will be created in areas that we know nothing about today. Yet these new skilled jobs at fabulous wages will be far fewer than the manual and semi-skilled jobs at lower wages that the global economy will phase out between now and 2032. To qualify for these lower-paying jobs and business opportunities, much higher skill levels will be needed . So keep reading, learning and tracking new, updated knowledge in your field. 1. More people who cannot find work but are still able to vote will benefit from the Universal Basic Income or UBI initiatives created by politicians eager to stay in power; 2. Funding these UBI programs means that both direct and indirect taxes are collected. So should your goal be to kick off your shoes, put your feet up, and collect money from the government just for breathing? That is the goal of most UBI initiatives. If you agree, you would then try as hard as you can to qualify for one (or a few) of the highly skilled and tightly staffed jobs that pay well in the future, but which unfortunately within the ecosystem of increasing Taxes required to fund various new UBI policy initiatives to provide the unprepared with money to live on? I have a strong personal penchant for struggling and reflecting to figure out how I can enjoy some of the fruits of my diligence and labor today and hopefully even more tomorrow. If you are like that, then the alarming rate at which machine-based AI is evolving means we should carve out economic niches where our talent, imagination, and spongy learning ability can keep our AI competition at bay. Our goal must be to future-proof ourselves in this current age of AI-driven human obsolescence. We do this by never lowering, but always raising, our personal (and ideally national) educational standards; by passionately and persistently improving our understanding of both global STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) education and advances; and our proficiency in STEM's primary world language: English. It was American civil rights icon Malcolm X who uttered these profound words: "Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today." I suggest you do everything you can today to help Prepare yourself and your children for a brighter future powered by AI.

Leeds signs Allied Telesis to improve network customer experience

Premier League football team and enterprise IoT and software-defined networking solution provider claim 15 years of flawless connectivity and improved experiences for infrastructure users. (Author: Gardener)

Allied TelesisLeeds United Football Club (LUFC) aims to raise the bar for improving the customer experience for fans and visitors at its Elland Road Stadium as part of an upgrade to its existing Allied Telesis resilient network core. The high-performance Allied Telesis network — designed, installed, maintained, and supported by NETprotocol, an Allied Telesis platinum-level partner — has been operating for 15 years without downtime, according to the enterprise Internet of Things (IoT) and software-defined networking system vendors . Elland Road Stadium has a capacity of 38,000 and is England's 14th largest football ground. From a network perspective, LUFC poses a challenge as they required 24/7 non-disruptive network operations for all of their internal operations on stadium premises, including back office administration, call center, hospitality and executive suites, ticketing, merchandise shop, press box, TV studio and a CCTV security system operating several hundred surveillance cameras throughout the stadium complex. "In this dynamic stadium environment, there are so many moving parts of the network," said Mark Broadley, director of IT and facilities at LUFC. With almost 200 cameras located around the stadium, CCTV is a vital part of the infrastructure designed to protect the 40,000+ fans and workers at the stadium on matchdays. Because a CCTV system failure would result in a game being abandoned, NETprotocol installed a dedicated network layer with an Allied Telesis switch that supports Power over Ethernet (PoE) for each camera on campus, further ensuring the security system's continuous operation . The LUFC network is based on two high-performance, differently routed fiber optic connections that form the robust network core. The network includes not only the club's Elland Road Stadium in Leeds, but also the training ground at Thorp Arch, Wetherby, 20km away. A Vista Manager EX network management platform and Allied Telesis' Autonomous Management Framework operate from a single pane of glass to enable a central view of network details, status and event information, and common tasks such as firmware updates, backups, and zero-touch provisioning to automate . Leeds United's network continues to be vital as more modern systems are integrated and more services are digitised. The team's promotion to the Premier League in 2020 saw many upgrades in services and networks to meet matchday needs for press, traveling teams, security and more. "Our mission-critical network powers every facet of our business - from the back office to security operations around the ground," Broadley said. “We put our trust in the expertise of NETprotocol and Allied Telesis all those years ago when they assured us that the network would be very reliable. “We recently increased network bandwidth by adding more fiber to the network to support additional communication lines, such as streaming games and interviews via LUFC-TV. We've replaced the network cores with even higher-capacity links, upgraded to the latest AlliedWare Plus operating system, and introduced a new management plane. Chris Dyke, Sales Manager for UK & Ireland at Allied Telesis added: “When we install, secure and modernize a network, its longevity is of paramount importance to us. The Leeds United FC network is a great example of this and we look forward to many more years of our partnership to ensure the network continues to deliver a return on investment in terms of productivity, safety and most importantly keeping the games going to everyone Season."

Modi says the country is eyeing a "developed" day in 25 years

India's Prime Minister makes the promise while addressing the nation on the 75th anniversary of India's independence from British rule. (Author: Gardener)

25 yearsIndia's Prime Minister makes the pledge while addressing the nation on the 75th anniversary of India's independence from British rule. India's Prime Minister makes the pledge while addressing the nation on the 75th anniversary of India's independence from British rule. India is aiming to become a developed nation within 25 years, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said in an address marking the national day, with policies to support domestic production in energy, defense and digital technology. Wearing a flowing cream turban printed in the colors of the Indian flag, Modi addressed the country on Monday from the 17th-century Mughal-era Red Fort in New Delhi to mark the 75th anniversary of India's independence from to celebrate British rule. "We must transform India into a developed country in the next 25 years in our lifetime," said the 71-year-old leader in his 75-minute Hindi speech. Modi said the world's view of India is changing and she is looking to the country to help solve global problems. He said India will be guided by the ideals of self-reliance and the spirit of international partnership to achieve excellence in science and technology, build industries and achieve food and energy security. India's efforts have already brought it into the ranks of the leading countries in information technology, pharmaceuticals, space science and civil nuclear energy. But the World Bank currently classifies India as a lower-middle-income economy — meaning countries with GNI per capita between $1,086 and $4,255. India is the sixth largest economy in the world and is expected to grow more than 7 percent in the current fiscal year ending March 2023 - the fastest among major economies. Many experts say that India's economy could become the third largest in the world after the US and China by 2050, although per capita income could remain low compared to many other countries, currently around US$2,100. With around 1.4 billion people, India is expected to overtake China as the world's most populous country next year. US President Joe Biden congratulated India on its national day on Sunday, saying the US and India are "essential partners" who will continue to work together to address global challenges in the years to come. In his speech, Modi made no mention of India's strained relations with immediate neighbors Pakistan and China, nor any steps to improve relations with them. Modi said millions of people across the country are commemorating the 75th anniversary of independence by raising orange, white and green national flags in their homes and businesses for three days, as part of a government campaign "to infuse the spirit of patriotism in every heart." wake up". India's parliament, presidential residence, national monuments and other government buildings are bathed in colorful light. Modi said the journey of the past 75 years has seen ups and downs, with India fighting against all odds with resilience and perseverance. Modi pledged to fight corruption and nepotism in the country's politics, which he said acted as "termites" eating up development gains. The main opposition party in Congress accused the Modi government of excluding opposition parties from the celebrations. "Special events were held in the historic Central Hall of Parliament to mark the 25th, 50th and 60th anniversaries of India's independence," said Jairam Ramesh, a spokesman for the India National Congress party. "Unfortunately, nothing of the sort was organized for the 75th anniversary, which was reduced to an occasion to glorify the Sarvagyaani," using a term meaning "a person who knows everything" in reference to Modi.

Archie's mum says the online trend that put his son in a coma has killed 82 children

Archie, who was just 12 years old, tragically died on August 6 after four months in a coma (Author: Gardener)

ArchieThe mother of the tragic Archie Battersbee has accused social media of failing to address harmful and dangerous challenges like the one that killed her son. Hollie Dance, 46, claims there have been 82 deaths linked to the "blackout challenge" alone, in which people choke until they pass out. There have been many other unfortunate participants who have since suffered brain damage after the trend first came to light 14 years ago. Archie, just 12 years old, spent more than four months in a coma after being found and tragically died on August 6 when medics removed life support. Now, in her first exclusive newspaper interview since Archie's death with The Mirror, Hollie, who has fought her way through the court system to keep her son alive, said: "The social media companies are not doing enough to stop harmful content online to stop. It's out there and people nurturing our children to overcome these challenges, it's disgusting. The people, often adults, not children, demonstrating these challenges are sick." Hollie came across footage online of a man in his 30s taking part in the challenge — she believes it was a demonstration video. She adding, "This is a grown man demonstrating this 'trick' to children. These people must be held accountable. The police and government must work together to stop this." surfaced about dangerous and even deadly online challenges.Tori Barber spoke about how her 10-year-old daughter suffered severe burns after spraying an aerosol directly on her skin to create a frost-like sensation after watching videos online.Jane Platt's daughter Sarah, 15, was also hospitalized in February 2020 after suffering from a "skull crushing hernia." sDemand” had participated. A wrongful death lawsuit was filed in the United States last month against teen favorite TikTok, blaming it for the deaths of two girls, ages eight and nine. It is reported that both had participated in the infamous Blackout Challenge. Yesterday the UK Government was urged to take further action to prevent further tragedy - with Lib Dem digital spokesman Jamie Stone criticizing delays in the Online Safety Act. He said: "It's been more than four years since Conservative ministers promised new legislation to tackle online harm, but we're still waiting. A spokeswoman for the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport replied: "The online safety law will force tech companies How to protect children from dangerous viral stunts How to get free TV streaming Amazon Prime offers thousands of original series, sports documentaries and movies to watch you Subscribe here for just £7.99/month, plus a free monthly trial.

Plans range from £5.99 to £13.99 per month. Hollie is determined that no one should suffer like her son and family. She continued: "This is the legacy I want for Archie. I want to protect children and the bereaved. It's unbearable." She found Archie unconscious at her home in Southend, Essex, on April 7 and immediately gave him CPR before he was taken to hospital. Bart's Health NHS Trust went to court with concerns it was not in Archie's best interest to continue treatment - but his mum Hollie and father Paul disagreed and appeal after appeal to fight back. In the end, their long struggle was unsuccessful and Archie was taken off life support on August 6th. Hollie said: "The morning Archie died I told him how much I loved him. It took 15 minutes for his heart to stop. It was heart Archie's family will now campaign to change life support laws and Hollie writes to Health Secretary Steve Barclay saying: "Depriving disabled children of the right to life because of their disability is unacceptable." Andrea Williams of the Christian Legal Centre , who supported Hollie's case, added, "We need a better system." Despite the tragic ending, Hollie has no regrets about the court fight. This legal challenge got us five extra months with my child.”

Our verdict on the massive transfers set to rock the Premier League

Two weeks to go: Our verdict on the massive transfers that could rock the Premier League (Author: Gardener)

Two weeksThe new season has already started but that hasn't stopped Premier League sides from desperately trying to strengthen their squads as the final days of the transfer window draw down. As of today, there are still two weeks until the arrival of the transfer deadline. Millions - billions - of dollars have already been spent in this window, from the arms race of Manchester City and Liverpool strikers to the promoted trio of clubs building a side worthy of surviving in England's top flight. The Premier League transfer window closes at 11pm BST on Thursday 1 September (8am AEST on Friday 2 September) - the deadline for signing or dismissing players, except in the case of signing players who don't have a club yet. The rest of Europe's top leagues close their own transfer windows on the same day. LaLiga (Spain) window closes one minute earlier: 22:59 BST. The Bundesliga (Germany) window closes six hours earlier than the Premier League: 17:00 BST (that's midnight AEST). Ligue 1 is the final window to close, an hour after Premier League: Thursday Sept through Friday 2 September at 9:00am AEST so Australian fans will know which players are up this season will fight their PL club's title dream. Some massive deals have already happened this window, but the rumor mill continues to churn - and some blockbuster deals could have a huge impact on the league this season. Here we look at the biggest rumors that could happen in these two weeks and how likely they are to happen. Last season, Manchester United caretaker manager Ralf Rangnick declared the squad were at such a dispute that the club needed "open heart surgery". So far, new manager Erik ten Hag hasn't landed the kind of signings he would have hoped for. Midfielder Christian Eriksen came on a free transfer but doesn't seem to find the right role in United's formation. Defender Lisandro Martinez came in for around £56.7m but his greatness was revealed by opponents in the first couple of games, while young full-back Tyrell Malacia will not solve United's weaknesses overnight. To be honest, United's transfer window so far is underwhelming in comparison. After 12 weeks of openly courting Barcelona's Frenkie de Jong, the club reportedly gave up his signature. LATE MAIL: Man Utd meet Reds in PL epic; $73m signing for immediate debut Utd broke up a brief chase around Marko Arnautovic and even Juventus' Adrien Rabiot - a bargain-priced option at around £15m with the Italians keen to sack him - will follow a negotiation the club is unlikely to switch collapse over its wage demands. Now it looks like they can finally shake off their much-missed 'McFred' midfield combination of Scott McTominay and Fred, with Real Madrid's Casemiro expected to sign a transfer fee of €60m plus a possible €10m. ons. Multiple reports say he'll be pocketing €18m a year for a deal that runs until 2026. A medical exam is due shortly, and this deal looks far from sorted. Casemiro, still at his peak at 30, has won five Champions League titles and three La Liga crowns in a sensational stint at Real Madrid. Attacking reinforcements remain a top priority for ten Hag, especially if Cristiano Ronaldo finally gets his wish and is sold. After falling through early in this window with a bid for Ajax winger Antony, United are reportedly set to re-enter the field - but the Dutch club initially asked for just under £70m for their services and could inflate that further as they have a number lost from first. Team players this window. PSG star Mauro Icardi has also been heavily linked but that deal has seemingly gone up in smoke as well. More likely is a move from PSV winger Cody Gakpo (for around £35m), while Stuttgart striker Sasa Kalajdzic from Austria or Jamie Vardy from Leicester have also been touted. Is this all hot air or will United really make a deal? The club is desperate, the owners are under immense pressure and the fans are furious. Having spent far less than many of their competitors in this window so far, you can expect at least one deal to close. But there was a big twist in their transfer hunt this week when United reportedly stepped in for Joao Felix. 23-year-old attacking sensation Felix has been on the radar of the world's biggest clubs for years and his development has continued at a rapid pace at Atletico Madrid since signing from Benfica in 2019. Atletico looked to lighten their payroll by relieving some attacking stocks - but mostly in the form of Alvaro Morata or even Antoine Griezmann. So reports that United had failed with a €130m ($190m) bid came as a surprise. Unsurprisingly, Atleti ended the Old Trafford run over Felix - likely by simply citing the release clause in his contract, which was set at a sky-high €350m. Perhaps it's all a misdirection by United, a bait and a switch - and Cunha could still be their true target (and a far more achievable one at that). But when the Red Devils want to take on Man City's big-name new signing Erling Haaland or Liverpool's Darwin Nunez, Felix is ​​the kind of amazing talent that gets fans talking - and not just ranting about the owners. THE VERDICT: Joao Felix is ​​highly unlikely and it would take a massive deal to get Antony away from Ajax. Gakpo is far more likely - as is Cunha. They have all the money in the world but Newcastle have been remarkably reticent in the transfer window so far. That could change in the last two weeks - and they have their sights set firmly on Chelsea's stacked squad. Chelsea have a really strong bench: Conor Gallagher, Callum Hudson-Odoi, Christian Pulisic and Armando Broja have all been linked with the Magpies by the Telegraph this week. Hudson-Odoi is likely to leave after making a request to leave Stamford Bridge but the club will only approve a loan deal. Christian Pulisic is targeting more playing time before taking charge of the USA in Qatar and has even been linked with a surprise move to Manchester United. That seems highly unlikely - after all, why would the Blues want to help a Big Six rival? However, Conor Gallagher is the biggest prize of the lot and it comes as no surprise that Newcastle have reportedly made him their prime target after appearing to have given up in the hunt for Leicester's fulcrum James Maddison. Chelsea are reportedly valuing the 22-year-old at £40million and the latest reports from England say a deal is getting closer by the day. THE VERDICT: Newcastle should finally make a splash on the transfer market by signing Gallagher. At least two more Blues are likely to go - but where? Tottenham wanted him in a package deal with Richarlison worth a total of £80million. Now it's Chelsea who are most linked with the Everton starlet. Graeme Souness told Sky Sports: "£40m for a 21-year-old who has played 51 times in the Premier League? He hasn't lit the heath yet...that's a lot of money for someone who's only played 50 games. It doesn't scream at you when you see him play that he's going to be a top man." Even for a whopping £40m, it's hard to imagine how Everton - or their fans - could accept letting him go. He's a local Evertonian, one of the club's rare future hopes and the club are in dire need of attackers. If Chelsea land him it could pave the way for Hakim Ziyech to leave with interested AC Milan or Pulisic and Hudson-Odoi as mentioned. Ronaldo's return to Old Trafford ahead of last season was met with much fanfare (if not fan hysteria). United had pinched it from City's face, Manchester would be red again soon - or not. It just didn't work out and in an ugly reversal of last off-season, all United fans are wondering if he will leave. Ronaldo wants to play Champions League football (and in fairness the legend only has so much time to build on his legacy), but options are few. Chelsea need a striker and United need attacking reinforcements, of which the Blues have plenty. Perhaps Atletico Madrid could make a move - but then again, Ronaldo's wages are astronomical and Atleti are already trying to ease his payload. PSG aren't interested, and neither are any of the Premier League's big hitters. Leicester left many fans and pundits stunned in 2019 when Manchester United managed to pay a whopping £80million for Harry Maguire - still the largest fee ever paid for a defender. Maguire was 26, had three impressive seasons in the top flight and was a crucial member of England's 2018 World Cup team. Wesley Fofana is 21, has only played one full season in the Premier League and has yet to win a single cap for France denied. Still, Leicester are urging Chelsea to break that previous record of £80m to sign him. Leicester are keen to hold onto James Maddison and Wesley Fofana, their two most sought-after stars, and giving each a heavy price is their strongest defense against poachers. However, Fofana is reportedly unhappy that Leicester will not accept the (more-than-reasonable) bids of around £60million submitted twice by Chelsea. This is all thanks to the Foxes: if they lower their asking price or accept Fofana's desire to play Champions League football and boost his World Cup selection hopes, a deal could soon be struck. THE VERDICT: Leicester need money and have only signed one third-row goalkeeper this transfer window. The Barcelona midfielder, wanted by Manchester United and Chelsea, is embroiled in a vicious and increasingly ugly battle over his future with the club. Put simply, Barcelona are keen to get him off the books - especially important as they haven't been able to register all the signings this season due to salary cap restrictions. De Jong has so far steadfastly refused to leave his dream club, with Manchester United's pursuit now stretching over three months. He previously worked with Erik ten Hag at Ajax but United's lack of Champions League football is reportedly a key factor. Chelsea can offer the player this opportunity which gives him the upper hand in pursuing his signature. THE VERDICT: What Barcelona want, Barcelona usually get. This time should be no different - De Jong is likely to blue at the end of the window.
