But some people saw his bicycle in the yard and they say he got to be in the house.”Prince’s body was found some 20 feet away from the door of his home where he was trapped.This publication has learnt that Devon Prince, the cousin of the dead man who occupied the bottom flat of the house, is currently in Police custody assisting with investigations.A neighbour has also been taken into custody.The cause of the fire is yet to be determined, but investigators are strongly considering arson as a factor.Prince, who had been occupying the house owned by his overseas-based father for some four years, was described as a very friendly and easy-going person.The investigation into the fire is continuing.

Ohio Ag Weather and Forecast, August 21, 2018

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest More rain today  into early tomorrow as low pressure finally sweeps across the rest of the eastern corn belt. Several fronts coming out of the low will work through the state. The heaviest rains developed overnight and may continue for a time this morning before we transition to a more scattered and lighter batch of precipitation that lingers through the rest of the day up to midnight tonight. Rain totals today can bring an additional .25”-1.25”, with locally higher rains due to thunderstorms. The precipitation around this low is very “banded”…meaning we see rains start and last a while as they train over the same geographical area for a while before sliding through. Everything still should be done well before sunrise tomorrow morning.Behind the front, we keep our forecast dry for Wednesday through the rest of the work week. We should see dominant sunshine in the Wednesday through Friday period, and excellent drying after the rains we pick up today and tomorrow. A strong high-pressure dome will move overhead during the period.Our forecast for the weekend and now the start of next week is wetter this morning. Scattered showers and thunderstorm chances have increased for the period after midnight Friday night and the action can continue on-and-off through Saturday. This is just phase one. There can be additional rains on Sunday, and then some action to start next week as well. Initially, rain totals are not that impressive through Saturday, with up to half an inch of moisture over about 70% of Ohio. However, we see scattered light action linger into Sunday, adding up to another half inch with coverage at 50%. There can be some thunderstorms moving into western and southwestern Ohio overnight Saturday night through he first half of Sunday. Then,  Another frontal complex works across Michigan Sunday night into the start of Monday, with showers and thunderstorms likely through early Tuesday morning. Combined, we can see rains there over 70% of the state, with rain totals of .5”-1.5” This is a much wetter outlook for the region, which will impact hay and forage operations…as there just not much of a window to put anything down. The map at right shows combined rains through next Tuesday, including the moderate to heavy action of today.Dry for the balance of Tuesday through Wednesday and the first part of Thursday. We have another minor disturbance coming in from late Thursday afternoon through Friday to finish the month. Rain totals will be around .25”-.5” with coverage at 70%. No change for the rest of the extended period, with a compact little low crossing Michigan for Labor Day and dragging a cold front across Indiana. That will have potential for .25”-1” over 80% of the state right at the end of the extended forecast window.Temperatures continue to show no concerning trends. In fact, we should stay mostly normal through the rest of the month, with highs from the upper 70s through the mid-80s for the period. Normals are from 79-83.last_img read more

Brizzly Adds Facebook – Aims to be The Blogger.com of Social Media (2000 Invites Below!)

first_imgRelated Posts The Dos and Don’ts of Brand Awareness Videos Brizzly in 2009 = Blogger in 2003 Brizzly shares much of the same philosophy as Blogger. It’s simple to use and aims to make microblogging easy to understand and use by a mainstream audience. This seems like a great strategy. Back in 2003, blogging was at a similar stage in its adoption as microblogging is today – passionately used by early Internet adopters, but not fully understood by a wider audience. The popular Twitter clients circa 2009 include TweetDeck, Seesmic and PeopleBrowsr. Those are great apps and no self-respecting Web geek would be caught without at least one of them. However it’s unlikely that your brother or sister, let alone Mom or Pop, is using those products. Brizzly wants to be the service that introduces your family and friends to the world of microblogging and social media.Jason Shellen, who RWW readers may also recognize as a creator of Google Reader, was at The ReadWrite Real-Time Web Summit in October. Jolie O’Dell interviewed him about about filtration and discovery on the real-time web. Shellen mentioned that mainstream users probably won’t use hashtags to tag their tweets. He noted (at about the 3 minute mark in the video) that “most people are not going to do that [hashtags], so it needs to evolve into a different type of filtration.” One of Brizzly’s goals is to make hashtags and other “geeky” social media concepts simple for mainstream users to understand. Less NoiseRegular people often struggle to see the value in Twitter and other social media apps. Web app developers need to find ways to convince people that behind the noise of social media, there is tremendous value. So how does Brizzly compare to the now Facebook-owned FriendFeed, an aggregation service that early adopters love but most others think is information overload? I spoke to Jason Shellen at the RWW Summit about that. He told me that Brizzly won’t blend services together like FriendFeed. It will keep them separate (Twitter, Facebook, other services that are added over time), in order to maintain simplicity.ConclusionAll in all, we’re impressed by the vision of Brizzly and we think it has a good chance of hitting the same wide user base that Blogger.com so successfully tapped. It’s fair to say that power users will probably be a little disappointed by Brizzly – but you’re not the target audience.INVITE CODE: ReadWriteWeb readers can access the private beta of Brizzly by signing up using the code “rwwsentme” or clicking here. There are 2000 invites available. richard macmanus Facebook is Becoming Less Personal and More Pro…center_img A Comprehensive Guide to a Content Audit Tags:#Facebook#Features#Product Reviews#Social Web#twitter#web Brizzly wants to be to microblogging what Blogger.com was to blogging five years ago. Currently, Brizzly offers a user-friendly browser-based interface for Twitter and Facebook. The Facebook integration went live today and more social media applications will be added as the product evolves. Brizzly was founded by Jason Shellen, one of the original developers of Blogger (acquired by Google in 2003). Currently Brizzly is in private beta, but ReadWriteWeb has scored 2000 invites for our readers to test it out! (see the bottom of this post for the code). Features, Including New Facebook SupportBrizzly is a self-described “social media reader.” It’s a browser-based service, like Blogger.com. Today Brizzly added Facebook as the second service it supports, after Twitter. Facebook users will be able to view and update their status, wall posts, comments and likes using Brizzly.Brizzly is similar to Twitter clients such as TweetDeck, Seesmic and PeopleBrowsr (not all of them currently support Facebook though). However power users won’t see much reason to switch, as Brizzly doesn’t have the advanced features of those products. And that’s the point.The feature set of Brizzly aims to make microblogging a simple and seamless experience for users. For example instead of having to click links to view media such as photos and videos, Brizzly puts those items inline in the user’s stream. Another example: Direct Messaging via Twitter has a UI (user interface) very similar to Instant Messaging, which many mainstream users will be familiar with.

Why Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni are in love with Team India’s latest jersey

first_imgWhy Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni are in love with Team India’s latest jerseyVirat Kohli and MS Dhoni said they loved the fabric and the design of the new Team India jersey which was launched last week ahead of the ODI series against Australia.advertisement India Today Web Desk New DelhiMarch 6, 2019UPDATED: March 6, 2019 20:01 IST Indian men’s cricket team has so far played two matches in the new ODI jersey. (@BCCI Photo)HIGHLIGHTSIndian men’s cricket team has played two ODIs in the new jerseyVirat Kohli and MS Dhoni said they loved the fabric of the jerseyDhoni also loved the futuristic design of the jerseyVirat Kohli and MS Dhoni have weighed in on the Indian team’s new jersey for the 2019 Cricket World Cup. Both men agreed it was felt comfortable on the body and the design with its dual tone colour, was new and innovative. The new jersey was launched on March 1 in the presence of Virat Kohli, MS Dhoni, Ajinkya Rahane and and up and coming cricketer Prithvi Shaw.Both Kohli and Dhoni are style icons off the field. They love to dress well but they are practical men who want to blend style with comfort. Hence the new design and the comfortable fabric appealed to the two giants of Indian cricket.”We wanted it to be sleek, obviously,” Kohli told bcci.tv. “It has to look a certain way when you are playing international cricket. An athlete has to look a certain way in their playing kits and jerseys.. so the designing bit was more to do with that but I think in terms of practicality and fit and feel of the jersey, we wanted it to be really light which the fabric is.”It feels great on the skin, it’s breathable and it feels light, much lighter compared to the last one. And it’s much more comfortable on the body as well. The last one was snug in places but this one is perfect to move around in and it’s much more stretchable than the last one,” he said.MS Dhoni, said he was impressed with the design but what appealed to him was the fabric.advertisement”What I really love about the new jersey is the fabric. You know you may have different designs or everything but ultimately it’s the fabric that makes you feel really comfortable.”As of now wearing it, makes you feel so comfortable, it makes you feel like you literally are not wearing anything.. it does not wear you down. I am just hoping it stays like that on the field.”How they have put on the two-tone colour and it’s a futuristic design. I have been told it has been designed keeping in mind the future. I was just joking that coming from a 38-year-old, it sounds funny but I like the design.. It’s slightly different to what we are used to .. This has a dual tone.. it looks very different to what we have seen,” Dhoni said.Also Read | MS Dhoni comes home to Ranchi for India vs Australia 3rd ODIAlso Read | Your future is as bright as your faith: Ravi Shastri after India’s 500th ODI winFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.
