UFC’s Jon Jones ordered to take anger management class

first_imgIn this Jan. 2, 2015, file photo, light-heavyweight mixed martial arts champion Jon Jones yells during the weigh-in for UFC 182 in Las Vegas. (AP Photo/The Las Vegas Sun, L.E. Baskow, File)ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Former UFC light heavyweight champion Jon “Bones” Jones will have to take anger management and driver improvement classes and do more community service for violating his probation from a previous hit-and-run crash.Jones appeared in court Thursday in Albuquerque, where the New York native lives and trains. He was wearing an orange jumpsuit and had his hands cuffed after having spent three days in jail.His latest legal troubles came after being stopped last week for allegedly drag racing in downtown Albuquerque, not far from his gym. He was issued five traffic citations but has denied the allegations.His attorneys reiterated during Thursday’s hearing that they would fight the latest accusations.“We believe they’re bogus,” attorney Nancy Hollander said of the citations. “We believe he was profiled, but that’s obviously for another day.”Hollander said the important thing is when the Albuquerque police officer stopped Jones last week, the fighter was sober. She said it’s significant that Jones has been sober for six months.Jones also has made 76 public appearances amounting to 125 hours of community service as part of his probation stemming from the previous case, Hollander said.The UFC reinstated the former champion in October, lifting what had been an indefinite suspension after its lawyers reviewed his plea agreement stemming from the hit-and-run crash in which a pregnant motorist was injured.UFC officials said at the time that this would be a new opportunity for Jones and that there would be significant expectations regarding his conduct moving forward. Earlier this week, officials said they were in touch with Jones’ legal team but declined to comment further.Jones is scheduled to fight Daniel Cormier at the end of April in Las Vegas for the light heavyweight title.Jones was considered the most dominant champion in MMA until his turbulent personal life knocked him out of the cage. He defended his 205-pound title eight consecutive times after winning it in March 2011 to become the youngest champion in UFC history.Jones beat the previously unbeaten Cormier by a clear unanimous decision at UFC 182 in early 2015, but his string of misbehaviors culminated in that April 2015 crash in Albuquerque.Police say officers were told by witnesses that Jones ran from a crash that hospitalized a pregnant motorist and then returned to his rental car to grab a wad of cash, leaving behind a pipe with marijuana and rental car documents in his name.Jones pleaded guilty in September to a charge of leaving the scene of an accident involving injury. He has completed one-third of the 18 months of supervised probation that were ordered.Prosecutors said during Thursday’s hearing that this marks Jones’ third chance. Just last week, he pleaded no contest and was sentenced to more community service for separate traffic violations stemming from a stop in January.After accepting the latest probation conditions, Judge Michael Martinez warned Jones: “If you come back, it won’t go well.”last_img read more

Citing Copyright, Judge Orders Movie Streaming Service Zediva to Shut Down

When it first launched in March 2011, Zediva was met with some intrique, but also with nearly universal skepticism over whether what it was doing was legal. GigaOm’s NewTeeVee said that “while it’s a compelling idea, Zediva’s business model is legally questionable,” with several other media outlets expressing the same sentiment. The case should serve as a cautionary tale for startups whose business models hinge too heavily on legal loopholes, especially when they’re going up against organizations with the size and legal might of the MPPA. For their part, Zediva isn’t going down without a fight. “Zediva intends to appeal, and will keep fighting for consumers’ right to watch a DVD they’ve rented, whether that rental is at the corner store or by mail or over the Internet,” the company said in a statement. Photo courtesy of Flickr user steakpinball. Zediva, a startup with a unique approach to online movie streaming, was ordered to shut down its service by a U.S. federal judge for running afoul of copyright law. The site offers inexpensive movie streaming via a Silicon Valley-based data center that houses a number of DVD players and DVDs, which users could effectively rent and use over the Internet. Rather than physically shipping discs to consumers, Zediva would allow them to control their DVD players via their Website. It was this unusual model that, its founders believed, exempted Zediva from the usual streaming licensing rules faced by competitors like Netflix. It also enabled them to charge much lower rates for movie rentals and make those movies available sooner than other video on demand services can. U.S. District Judge John Walter did not agree with Zediva’s interpretation of U.S. copyright law, siding with the Motion Picture Association of America, who filed a copyright suit against the company only a few weeks after it launched. 9 Books That Make Perfect Gifts for Industry Ex…last_img read more

Why the Desktop Will Never Die

first_imgTop Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Related Posts 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market The current cries heralding the death of desktops and the rise of the Post-PC Era ring hollow to anyone of the Video Killed the Radio Star MTV age. If history has taught us anything, it’s that devices with a common purpose seldom destroy one another. It is the changes in computing processes that kills devices.Take for example the claims that radio would kill newspapers and TV would kill radio. It didn’t happen. Why? Because each of these devices served a common purpose and although the mode changed, the process did not. Then along came the Internet to disrupt the process – in terms of dissemination and access. Sure, the Internet spawned new devices too but these were attuned to the same Internet-based process and thus it is the process and not the advent of these new devices that will kill the Big Three – newspapers, TV and radio.But, these new Internet-based devices will not kill the desktop because the desktop is based on the same process. It belongs to the Web-ilk, that is, to the Internet of Things.And so the desktop will live on in one form or another as long as the process, i.e. the Internet as we know it, does. Perhaps not this desktop, though (the Data General One):But what possible advantage can process have over utility, one might ask? To which I would say, that is the wrong question. Utility is served by process too. For example, the radio was once a fixed object in the home. Later it became portable and even found a way to roam about in cars. It wasn’t its form or its mobility that fully addressed its utility. Form and mobility merely augmented its usefulness. But its utility remained the same. This is true right up to satellite radio today. Access improved, but utility remained the same. Pam Baker has written hundreds of articles in leading technology, business and finance publications. She has also authored several analytical studies on technology, eight books and an award-winning documentary on paper-making. She is a member of the National Press Club (NPC), Society of Professional Journalists (SPJ), and the Internet Press Guild (IPG). She can be reached at [email protected] and on Twitter at @bakercom1. However, a change in process came about through the iPod and iTunes, Internet radio and MP3-capable phones. The change in the process was that music was no longer a one-way stream of sound. Now music can be selected from a variety of sources, played on demand, stored in various ways, owned or rented, commercial free or ad endowed and shuttled between devices. In other words, the listener commands the what, where and how of music enjoyment rather than passively receiving the music from a disc jockey’s predetermined playlist.With the new process comes a new utility. Once again, the new devices that are now slowly killing traditional radio are doing so because of their process and not because of their utility or newness to the scene.The same holds true with the desktop – the much maligned CPU with monitor, keyboard and mouse configuration literally sprawled on desktops everywhere. Its utility has not changed and neither has its process .The situation is similar to that of the QWERTY keyboard which is still around today because the process of data entry has remained unchanged despite the onslaught of new devices and Web advancements. In much the same way, the process behind desktop use remains static. The desktop provides the muscle needed to handle large amounts of local data in the current computing process model. It is superior to all other Internet-based devices in offline data retrieval and use. There will always be people who want to keep their information on a CPU and out of reach of Dropbox- and Wikileak-style fiascos and warrantless government searches.There will always be nerds and geeks who want to code in private and thus want CPUs that can work offline. They will keep machines at the ready to test everything from hacking tools to new software, both online and off. They will have a pile of CPUs at their feet and a spread of monitors on their desks as long as life breathes within man and machine.There will be scientists with new discoveries, governments with secrets, and corporations with profits to protect who will always guard against leaks and spies by keeping information on-premise.And this is why the desktop will never die. At least not until the the Internet as we know it dies and a new computing process takes its place.Photo @ Creative Commons by kerplunk kerplunk Tags:#Desktop Virtualization#solution-series center_img A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… pam baker Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic…last_img read more

There are five shortlisted candidates and Gary Waddock is certainly included.”It’s sometimes difficult for the assistant to step into the shoes of the manager but in this instance Gary has had very considerable experience and he is well-placed to stamp his authority.” last_img read more
