He named freshman outside hitter Ashley Eppler and middle blocker Emily Banas, as well as returning starter Lauren Costa, a junior. Overall, he described the team as “outstanding.” “They’re getting a lot better,” he said. “They’ve got their heads straight and everyone’s really positive about everything.” Cantor tries to “keep it fun” in practice, with an emphasis on conditioning. He joked that he’s able to work the team harder in his second year. He thinks the summer league helped prepare the girls for playing against bigger schools, which is the most challenging part of the season. “Two losses \ were to big schools, so it’s hurting us on our record,” Cantor said. At the same time, the team has beaten other larger schools such as Venice, West Torrance and San Pedro. “We’re getting prepared for our playoffs,” he said hopefully. rachel.jones@dailybreeze.com160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

With girls’ volleyball in full swing, the Mary Star team is trying to bump the competition and make its way to the championships. Mary Star started its season Sept. 6 and so far is 4-3. “We’re aiming for CIF,” said coach Cesar Cantor, referring to the California Interscholastic Federation championship games. The team lost 3-0 to Providence on Tuesday night. “Everybody was a little frustrated,” Cantor said the following day. “We weren’t playing our best game, we had one of those off days. But they’re planning on working out a lot more and training better for the next game.” Cantor said he’s looking forward to a few tournaments in October, including one at Redondo Beach and one at Kennedy. Now in his second season with the Stars, the coach sees a difference with this year’s team. last_img read more

first_imgA Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market sarah perez Related Posts Tags:#NYT#search#web center_img TinyURL, one of the most popular URL-shortening services (although not our favorite) is now being used by cybercriminals to redirect web surfers to pages that contain viruses, trojans, and other sorts of malware. According to Finjan’s Malicious Code Research Center, these criminals are using the service to avoid having their web sites flagged by the Safe Browsing mechanisms built in to modern web browsers like Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome. Both web browsers employ Google Safe Browsing, a feature which warns users about phishing sites and other malware. Yet bypassing this filter within your browser is easy to do, apparently. All that’s necessary is for a cybercriminal to create a TinyURL that hides the original, malicious URL. Then, instead of getting the warning message “Reported Attack Site!”, unsuspecting web surfers will be sent directly to the dangerous web page when clicking the link. In tests, the reason that the TinyURLs were able to be used in this way is because the pages they masked were not at the domain level, but were rather sub-pages of a domain marked as “safe.” This actually points to a weakness in the Safe Browsing feature and not really a security risk in the TinyURL service in and of itself. Because Safe Browsing only ranks sites at the domain level, infected sub-pages will always be ranked as “non-malicious” as long as the domain is categorized as “safe.” TinyURL isn’t the only service being abused in this way. Other URL-shortening services mentioned in the article include bit.ly, w3t.org and is.gd. However, during their research, the firm also found bit.ly being used by the same cybercriminals. Both TinyURL and bit.ly were notified and the malicious links were removed. Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hostinglast_img read more

first_imgToday, Box announced a tablet-optimized Android app, a PlayBook app (the company’s first native app for any BlackBerry platform) and a new HTML5 mobile site. The Android version replaces the company’s existing Android app and will work with both smartphones and tablets, optimizing the view depending on the device.More interesting than the actual app announcements, Box CEO Aaron Levie revealed that the company has seen a 600% increase in enterprise sales regarding mobile. And yes, that’s specifically enterprise sales, not overall sales. For example, Proctor and Gamble just became a Box customer based largely on the company’s mobile support.Screenshot of the Box app on an Android tablet.We’ve seen an explosion of enterprise mobile applications, especially tablet apps (as we’ve documented here on an at least weekly basis). But it hasn’t been clear to what degree enterprises are actually demanding and taking advantage of these apps. Box’s experience indicates that enterprises are indeed looking for these solutions.In the past, I’ve wondered how Box would stand out in the market. Among large enterprises, SharePoint already has a huge marketshare, and companies like Newsgator and Harmon.ie are making it more palatable to end users. Now that you can upload any file format to Google Docs, Google Apps is shoring up a lot of the mid-market, and Dropbox and Google Docs have become the de facto standards for document sharing and collaboration between individual professionals. So where would Box, and its competitors like Huddle, fit into this (especially with Apple iCloud now on the scene)?Box seems to have solved by building niche with its mobile support (the company received a leading position in the Forrester Wave on mobile collaboration) and possibly also through its integrations with Google Docs, SharePoint and various ECM systems. Box is now positioning itself as a way to glue together Google Docs and ECM systems and as a way to take documents mobile while maintaining enterprise security (thanks in part to its partnership with VMware).Disclosure: VMware is a ReadWriteWeb sponsor Related Posts Tags:#enterprise#mobile 3 Areas of Your Business that Need Tech Now IT + Project Management: A Love Affaircenter_img klint finley Massive Non-Desk Workforce is an Opportunity fo… Cognitive Automation is the Immediate Future of…last_img read more
