Auburn to Honor Charles Barkley with Statue Outside Arena

? | It’s official, former @AuburnMBB great Charles Barkley will be honored by #Auburn with his own statue.His reaction⬇️#WarEagle pic.twitter.com/GgkW8RIYqg— Auburn Tigers (@AuburnTigers) October 22, 2016Barkley played at Auburn from 1981-84 and went on to win All-American honors on his way to becoming an Olympic gold medal winner, AuburnTigers.com reports. He began his career in the NBA as a first-round draft pick by the Philadelphia 76ers in 1984. Barkley became a Hall of Fame hooper and was later named as one of the NBA’s 50 greatest players during the league’s 50th anniversary season.Auburn officials said the new statue will recognize the former athlete’s many accomplishments during his time at the university and beyond. The school retired Barkley’s jersey in 2001.“It’s more than about what Charles Barkley accomplished here at Auburn, which is certainly historic, but it has been about his life’s work and contribution,” said Auburn basketball coach Bruce Pearl. “We want to recognize one of the most respected, philanthropic NBA legends, Hall of Famer, for his lifetime achievements.“Our Auburn Family is so blessed to have an Auburn man like Charles Barkley in the public eye representing us,” Pearl continued. “A statue and a symbol like this serves to bring attention to that and will stand the test of time.”According to the Washington Post, Barkley averaged 14.1 points and 9.6 rebounds for Auburn as 1983-84 SEC player of the year, which earned him the nickname “The Round Mound of Rebound” for his unusual physique. Barkley has since gained notoriety as an entertaining, and oftentimes sharp-tongued sports commentator for TNT.“More than anything, Charles Barkley has become a global icon and this award honors the contributions he has given to Auburn both on and off the floor,” said Chuck Person, Auburn basketball’s associate head coach who played with Barkley at the university. “What an honor, and Auburn couldn’t have done this for a better man, my friend, Charles Barkley.” Charles Barkley. Photo by Brett Davis, USA TODAY Sports.Retired basketball star Charles Barkley is set to receive a statue outside Auburn Arena — making him the first former athlete who wasn’t a football player to be immortalized on the university’s campus.According to the Washington Post, the school announced plans to a erect a statue in Barkley’s name during Auburn’s 56-3 win over the University of Arkansas Razorbacks on Saturday. The retired basketballer will be the fourth former Auburn athlete to have a statue built in his honor, joining the Tigers’ Heisman Trophy winners Bo Jackson, Pat Sullivan and Cam Newton.“It just means a great deal to me,” Barkley told AuburnTigers.com. “Being a kid from Alabama, going to Auburn. I think everybody knows what Auburn means to me. It’s going to be pretty cool.”Watch as Charles Barkley learns he’ll soon have a statue at Auburn Arena (from @BoJackson on video board), then Bo appears in Groves jersey. pic.twitter.com/ESRTl81b8J— Jeff Shearer (@jeff_shearer) October 22, 2016 read more

PewDiePie bro army sneaks memefilled ad page onto WSJcom

first_imgFelix Kjellberg, better known as PewDiePie, has taken issue with reporting by the Wall Street Journal in the past.  Screenshot by Joan E. Solsman/CNET PewDiePie’s bro army has hit back at a publisher that hit PewDiePie first.  The Wall Street Journal’s website was compromised with a page supporting PewDiePie in the race to keep his channel’s status as YouTube’s most-subscribed. The page, which claimed the WSJ was apologizing to the YouTube star and had fired journalists who misrepresented him, asked people to subscribe to his channel and included a string of memes.   PewDiePie, whose real name is Felix Kjellberg, has been YouTube’s most-subscribed channel for more than five years, but in recent weeks he and his fanbase — known as the bro army — have been working to fend off another channel threatening to top his. T-Series, a channel with Indian movie trailers and music videos, is operated by an Indian music record label and film production company of the same name. At 77 million subscribers, PewDiePie’s channel leads T-Series by about 1.4 million. (The next-closest channel has 44 million.) WSJ joins the fight vs tseries 🔥https://t.co/O0WbSSNedI— ƿ૯ωძɿ૯ƿɿ૯ (@pewdiepie) December 17, 2018 A representative for Dow Jones, the publisher of the Journal, said the company has removed the page, which was operated by WSJ Custom Solutions, a unit of the company’s advertising arm. It’s a “branded content” unit that produces advertising pages that have many of the hallmarks of a news report. The page wasn’t affiliated with The Wall Street Journal newsroom, and the Journal’s publishing system is “completely separate” from the one used by WSJ Custom Solutions, he added.  “We have launched a full investigation,” the rep said. He didn’t respond to questions about whether the page was posted through a cyberattack or by somebody simply taking advantage of WSJ Custom Solutions’ tools in bad faith.  Kjellberg used his Twitter account to call out the ad page and its deletion.  Comments The message on the paper’s website said: “WallStreet Journal would like to apologize to pewdiepie. Due to misrepresentation by our journalists, those of whom have now been fired, we are sponsoring pewdiepie to reach maximum subscribers and beat Tseries to 80million. We also need your credit card number, expiry date, and the lucky 3 digits on the back to win the chicken dinner in fortnite.” The message, which concluded with an allusion to the Epic Gamers meme, included a string of image memes after it.  Last year, WSJ reports about racist and anti-Semitic overtones in some of Kjellberg’s video jokes led to an advertiser backlash against him. His channel lost the ability to run ads, a crucial way that channels generate revenue. Disney, which had a partnership with Kjellberg through its acquisition of a digital video agency Maker, cut ties with him too.   Originally published at 9:39 a.m. PT.  Updated at 10:16 a.m. PT: With subscriber count numbers.  Tech Culture: From film and television to social media and games, here’s your place for the lighter side of tech.  The Smartest Stuff: Innovators are thinking up new ways to make you, and the things around you, smarter.

High Inflation Economic Slowdown Hits Indian PC Market Sales Decline by 59

first_imgThe overall sale of desktops and laptops in India has gone down in the third quarter of this year as compared to last year, recent data showed.According to market research firm Gartner Inc, India’s mobile PC market, which totalled nearly 2.9 million units in the third quarter of 2012, recorded a fall of 5.9 percent during the corresponding period last year.”Consumers accounted for 47 percent of total PC sales in the third quarter of 2012 compared to 55 percent in the third quarter of 2011,” said Vishal Tripathi, principal research analyst at Gartner.”This emphasises the fact that despite the festive season and availability of various end user schemes on PCs, the market was impacted by high inflation, global economic uncertainty and limited share of wallet as consumers preferred to spend on other consumer durables,” he added.In the third quarter this year, parallel imports and white boxes which accounted up to 47 percent of the whole desktop market showed a decline of 35 percent as compared to the same period of the previous year. Mobile PCs helped drive overall market growth with a similar 23 percent growth on a year-on-year basis. Lenovo retained the top position in the third quarter of 2012 with help of factors like the execution of the Tamil Nadu government order, and a strong increase in the consumer space. While HP’s PC shipment grew around 10 percent, Dell declined 22 percent compared to the third quarter of 2011. For local vendor’s like HCL PC market share declined to 3.4 percent in the third quarter with a 43 percent year-on-year decline from the third quarter in 2011. Acer, Dell, HP and Lenovo represented around 60.6 percent of the market.last_img read more

Houston Job Growth Expected To Bounce Back Next Year

But this time next year, most of those homes will be repaired — at least, hopefully they’ll be repaired — and that will even start winding down.”Jankowski says Harvey definitely had an economic impact.“You can see in the the building permits,” he said. “But it’s not had as big an impact on employment as we thought it might.”GHP’s 2018 Economic ForecastJankowski told Houston Matters that, overall, construction is actually slowing because most home repairs take just a few weeks or months, compared to the years it takes to construct an office building. And he says recovery for the energy industry won’t occur until crude prices approach $60 a barrel.MORE: Full Conversation On Houston Matters X Sharelast_img read more
