Darren Anderton: England-Tunisia in 1998 had a horrible buildup but happy ending

Share via Email World Cup Gareth Southgate tells squad his starting team to ease England anxiety Tunisia football team Share on Messenger Share on LinkedIn Pinterest If I have one piece of advice for the boys, it’s to play without fear. We had so much confidence back then. We were on a high after Euro 96. Glenn was very good tactically. We always seemed to have the ball. We had players who could cause trouble for the opposition. It makes a huge difference when your creative players are able to shine. If the likes of Dele Alli do well, England can have a good tournament. I want to see them play with freedom and enjoy themselves. That’s what it’s all about. Sportblog Gareth Southgatecenter_img Share on Pinterest Our experience helped. We had players like David Seaman, Tony Adams, Paul Ince and David Batty, although we also had a few youngsters coming through – Michael Owen, Becks, Scholesy and Sol Campbell. Rio Ferdinand was in the squad as well. We had a good blend. People always talk about Euro 96 but I thought we had a special squad in 1998.This team is much more inexperienced and this is the first World Cup game for a lot of these players, which makes a difference. People question whether the players care as much about international football these days but playing in the World Cup is the dream. You’re very aware that you’re lucky to be there and also that you might not get another crack at it. A lot of nerves come with that. You want to perform well for yourself and make sure the team starts well. features There was a lot of trouble before we played Tunisia in Marseille. The two or three days leading up to the game were unpleasant. A lot of the squad had family over there, so it wasn’t easy.We were aware of what was going on. We had families flying over in the morning or on the night before and you just never know, do you? My mum and step-dad were out there. They were having a holiday in France and were travelling down for the game. I spoke to them and it was fine but it’s something you think about. You just had to assume that people you cared about were going to stay well clear of the trouble. We were buzzing for the game, though, and could not wait for the tournament to start. It was a really hot afternoon and we were expected to win, like the guys are now. But none of us were taking anything for granted after the way we started Euro 96 against Switzerland. Tunisia were defensive and I’m sure it will be the same on Monday. You have to be patient. First games can be tedious and are so important not to lose, which makes them even more nervy.The heat was an advantage for Tunisia. The pitch was dry and sticky and we were playing against a team who wanted to frustrate us and try to nick a draw or a goal on the break. It was far from ideal. We would rather have played at night with a bit of dew on the pitch because then the ball zips around. But we believed we could control the pace of the game and have most of the possession.The key was to get the first goal and force them to come out a bit more. It worked out perfectly in the end. Alan Shearer made it 1-0 in the first half and we never looked back. Paul Scholes scored a great second goal to finish it off and it was a comfortable win in the end. Twitter Share on Facebook Read more Share on WhatsApp Topics World Cup 2018 Read more Gareth Southgate has a lot of quality at his disposal, though, and I think he’s doing a good job. I played with him for England and could see him being a coach one day. It was a surprise when he became England manager but he was an appointment from within: English, a good guy and a very clever man. He played the game in an intelligent way, read the game brilliantly and was pretty underrated.He’s found a system that suits international football. Glenn Hoddle used a back three in 1998 and it helped us dominate possession. We had more players in midfield and didn’t get overrun. I played at right wing-back and although it was tough not to have the security of a right-back behind me, we were told to play in a positive way. We wanted people on the ball in good areas and I think Gareth has a similar mentality. Reuse this contentlast_img read more

Instagram has new rules for removing accounts

Users will be able to appeal if their content was taken down for violating Instagram’s rules against nudity and pornography, bullying and harassment, hate speech, drug sales, and counter-terrorism. Instagram said in the coming months it’ll expand appeals. It’s also giving users a way to submit appeals directly within the photo sharing app. Currently, users have to go through the site’s help center.The company will delete accounts right away if they violate the company’s drug sales or sexual solicitation policies.

Teaching Girls to Code

first_img 5 min read February 1, 2013 Register Now » Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box. A failed congressional campaign inspired attorney Reshma Saujani to start Girls Who Code, a non-profit in New York that seeks to address the gender gap in technology.Saujani, an Indian-American child of political refugees, launched her underdog campaign in 2010, motivated by Hillary Rodham Clinton’s presidential run. While she didn’t win, the support she received from other women pushed her to “pay it forward.” During her campaign, she’d learned that job growth came from technology – but only a small, mostly male fraction of the U.S. work force could fill those jobs. “As a nation, we’re missing out not just on innovation, but the innovation of an entire gender,” she says. “Our country depends on teaching girls to get into these fields.”Taking her renewed passion for public service, Saujani last summer launched Girls Who Code, training underprivileged teenage girls in computer science. She recruited executives at Twitter, GE and eBay to support the program. This year, with a $435,000 grant by the Knight Foundation, she plans to expand Girls Who Code to three cities, and eventually launch Girls Who Code clubs in schools.Saujani was recently named a Next MAKER by Makers.com, which honors trailblazing women leaders across the globe, joining the ranks of Madeleine Albright, Ruth Bader Ginsberg, and her mentor, Clinton. She’s now a candidate for New York City Public Advocate, running on a platform focused on supporting small businesses and entrepreneurs.Edited interview excerpts follow.Entrepreneur: Will training and mentoring girls in tech have more of a social impact or economic impact?Saujani: They’re intertwined. If we teach a million girls to code by 2020, there will be a tangible change in the economic future – more jobs, less pay inequity. There’s an access issue in this country. In NYC, 76 percent of public school students don’t have access to a computer in school. So students are missing a fundamental language that we use in business. Socially, there is a huge impact. When girls build, they make things to improve their community.Entrepreneur: Do you know how to code?Saujani: I wish I did! I was always intimidated by math and science growing up and I still am now. I don’t want other girls to feel as I did. I wish I could build an app. Even as I run for office, it’d be great if I could make changes to my website myself. There’s a vulnerability that comes with not knowing. That is true for small-business owners as well. Think about the small family restaurant down the street — if everyone else is on Seamless and she’s not, how does she compete?Related: PopTech’s Andrew Zolli on Resilience and Solving World ProblemsEntrepreneur: Has the tech community been supportive of nurturing girls?Saujani: Yes. Both men and women have come out to support us. My relationship with the CEO of Twitter evolved because I reached out to the women of Twitter networking group. They helped recruit other female engineers and entrepreneurs to support us. Men support us because they have daughters, and they see that computer science education isn’t happening in school.Entrepreneur: Are young women less interested in becoming tech entrepreneurs than young men are? Is that a myth?Saujani: We make it true by saying it. If we encourage girls to take risks like we do for boys, there will be more gender parity in entrepreneurship. We have to start encouraging our girls to fail fast, fail hard and fail often. Girls Who Code is a natural place for this. I saw the confidence level in our girls enormously increase in the eight weeks of the program. In the beginning, they could hardly introduce themselves. By the end we had them making presentations in a room of 100 people and doing science fairs at the New York Stock Exchange. They were not the same girls they were when they started. We shouldn’t have a creative culture or society that makes it more acceptable for men to fail than women.Entrepreneur: Was it difficult to recover from your congressional race?Saujani: I gave myself two months to mourn it and ask questions of what went wrong during the campaign. Putting together a campaign is like starting a business — you learn about how to hire, how to run your budget, what your message is, what your mission is.Related: The ‘White African’ and Nairobi’s Tech HubEntrepreneur: Is failure now part of the zeitgeist of our culture?Saujani: The economy has changed so significantly that if you ask young people what they want to do, they want to become entrepreneurs. Failure is part of that. If you are passionate and smart and you have an idea and you fail, it doesn’t preclude you from doing anything else. Exploring these things is about finding your dharma and figuring out what you’re put on this earth to do.Entrepreneur: How do you find your dharma?Saujani: The best test: Do you bound out of bed in the morning? I don’t sleep enough, but I jump out of bed every morning. I love what I’m doing, I love Girls Who Code and I love running for office. I did not feel that way for most of my career. I was curled up in the fetal position for most of my career! What are you getting out of your work? What are you losing? Do the cost benefit analysis of sticking with something that you don’t love, and see if it’s worth it to you. Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own.

The November 2018 release of Visual Studio code v130 is now available

first_imgThe November 2018 release of Visual Studio code (version 1.30) is now available. This version has multiline search improvements, custom tile bars for Linux, a simplified debug configuration and other changes. We take a look at the major updates in the November 2018 of Visual studio code. Multiline search input In the October release, support for multiline search was added. Now, the search UX has been improved for easier usage. Users can search with multiline text without writing a regular expression. Press Shift+Enter in the search box to insert a newline. The search box will grow to show the full multiline query. Users can also copy paste multiple lines from the editor into the search box. Custom title and menu bar on Linux by default The accessibility and themability of menus has been improving over the past releases on Windows through the custom title and menu bar. This was optionally available on Linux, it will now be enabled by default. You can use the native title bar by setting the window.titleBarStyle to native. References view The References view has moved out of preview and is now available generally. There are two commands: Find All References: Opens the References view. Peek References: Opens references in a Peek view. Hidden on startup, the References view will remain visible once it has been used. When all search results are cleared, a history of previous searches is shown. Snippet comment variables New snippet variables are available that insert line or block comments to honor the current language. BLOCK_COMMENT_START and BLOCK_COMMENT_END for using block comments and LINE_COMMENT for lines. JavaScript and TypeScript callbacks look better Any JavaScript and TypeScript anonymous callbacks were previously labeled as . This was in the Outline view, breadcrumbs view, and document symbol list. Due to this, it was impossible to tell which function a developer was really after. TypeScript 3.2+ allows VS Code to display more context for callback functions, so now they can be differentiated from one another. Markdown elements in JSDoc comments are highlighted Fenced code blocks and other Markdown elements within JSDoc blocks are now syntax-highlighted. Initial debug configuration is simplified In this release, an area of improvement was to simplify the generated launch.json file for the most popular debug extensions. The goal was to encourage users to start and configure debugging. Unnecessary launch configuration attributes were hidden. Using the Quick Pick UI for better user interaction while generating the initial launch.json was also a part of this. Run on folder open A task that users always run on opening a folder can now be configured to run automatically. This can be done by configuring its “runOn” property when that folder is opened. This was done to make sure no one breaks the new strict null checks in the VS Code repository. On adding “runOn”: “folderOpen”, everyone who allows tasks to be run automatically will get markers the strict null check is violated. Install previous versions A previous version of an extension can be used if the current version has problems. An Install Another Version action is provided on an installed extension, on clicking it, a dropdown of available versions is shown. Preview Features HTML custom tags / attributes support is added which allows developers to specify a list of tags and attributes that VS Code loads during startup. Network proxy support for extensions for enabling network proxy support for all extensions by using Http: Proxy Support.
