Codex Sinaiticus: The World’s Oldest Bible Goes Online

first_imgA Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Related Posts The Codex Sinaiticus is the oldest version of the Christian Bible in book form, and, according to many scholars, one of the world’s greatest written treasures. The actual leaves and fragments from the book are in the British Library in England, as well as in various archives in Germany and Russia, and the St. Catherine’s Monastery of Sinai, where the text was originally discovered. Starting today, however, anybody with access to an Internet connection and a modern browser can now see a virtual facsimile of the book online.While large parts of the text are still missing (including most of the text of Genesis), this marks the first time that such a complete version of the Codex has been available to both scholars and the public. The site is currently quite slow, thanks to some heavy demand right after launch, but we got a chance to test the site while it was still running smoothly. One nice aspect of the project’s web site is that it was built with open standard and modern web development techniques in mind. frederic lardinois Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Tags:#news#NYT#web Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting As these projects typically take years to come to fruition and have to conform to pretty stringent accessibility and long-term storage standards, their web sites often also look like they were developed five years ago.

first_imgIvan Campo has advice for Takefusa Kubo over Mallorca battlesby Paul Vegas4 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveIvan Campo says Takefusa Kubo needs to step things up at Real Mallorca.Like the Japanese teen, Campo played for both Mallorca and Real Madrid.He told Marca: “He is not at his best level, but it is normal because he is a very young boy who has to get used to it. He has no experience in our country at this football level and must be patient. “He must learn to move. He is a great player but he still has a lot to learn and room for improvement. If in Madrid they said that it is best that they should be transferred to a LaLiga team rather than stay in Castilla, for example, they saw it very clearly. I think it’s a good idea to be in Mallorca, although things are not going perfect for now.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

SaberCat clawing his way back Former Buckeye Jamario ONeal is back in

If at first you don’t succeed, dust yourself off and try again. That goes for former Buckeye safety Jamario O’Neal as he continues his career in the Arena Football League with the San Jose SaberCats. A native of Mansfield, Ohio, O’Neal moved to Cleveland and played his final two years of high school at Glenville High School. O’Neal was the first commitment of the Buckeyes’ 2005 recruiting class. His career at Ohio State, however, never panned out. “I didn’t do the little things and stay on the grind that got me to that point,” O’Neal said. “I had a lot going in my life with school and everything, and I just kind of lost my passion for football.” O’Neal was an All-Ohio team selection his junior and senior years of high school. His senior year garnered him a Parade All-America honor before he came to OSU. Four years later, after splitting time at safety and cornerback with the Buckeyes, O’Neal amassed 49 tackles, one forced fumble, one interception and two passes defended. His recruiting class also included Kansas City Chiefs’ safety Donald Washington, New Orleans Saints’ cornerback Malcolm Jenkins and Washington Redskins’ defensive back Anderson Russell in the secondary with him. “Just thinking about all the times I could’ve done extra films, gassers (and) time in the weight room, I had talent but didn’t work hard,” he said. “You had guys like Malcolm and Donald who worked hard and had talent.” After being suspended for the Spring Game and first two games of 2008 for a team violation, O’Neal didn’t make it back into the starting rotation. O’Neal worked out during Pro Day, but no one offered him a contract during the NFL Draft. He spent the next two years out of football, until he got a phone call from his agent in October 2010 regarding the SaberCats and another chance on the field. “I had time to reflect while I was away,” he said. He immediately began to study the team playbook and prepare for the faster pace of the indoor game. “I was out of football for damned near two years,” he said. “Adjusting to the mental aspect was easy. With the physical aspect, that is something that you have to work on everyday.” After missing the first four games of the season with a strained hamstring, O’Neal had an immediate impact with a forced fumble and recovery in his first game against the Tulsa Talons. “Jamario brought real good enthusiasm,” teammate Mervin Brookins said. “He turns it on when he gets on the field.” In week seven, O’Neal had an interception return for a touchdown in a 68-61 win against the Philadelphia Soul. Since then, he’s had 11.5 tackles, nine of which were solo in three games for the 5-3 SaberCats. Having proved his playing abilities to everyone who said he was a bust, O’Neal is confident when talking about his future after football. “After this: big things. I just need to stay focused,” he said. read more

Football Dwayne Haskins is the Heismancaliber quarterback he knew he was

Ohio State redshirt sophomore quarterback Dwayne Haskins (7) pumps up the crowd after McLaurin scored a touchdown in the first half of the B1G Championship Game vs. Northwestern on Dec. 1. Ohio State won 45-24. Credit: Casey Cascaldo | Photo EditorDwayne Haskins came into this season with big shoes to fill.Following behind J.T. Barrett, who held a handful of Ohio State records and was a part of the two teams that made the College Football Playoff, the redshirt sophomore was not expected to immediately become the next legend under center.But Haskins did that and more this season, and he hasn’t shown it in a more spectacular fashion than he did in Ohio State’s 45-24 victory against Northwestern in the Big Ten Championship.For many, all this success from a first-year starter came as a surprise. But for Haskins, he knew he was going to win the job in the offseason.He knew he would be the star that he eventually became.“I knew I was gonna be the guy, just a matter of time before [Urban Meyer] made the decision,” Haskins said. “I always wanted to come to school here at 10 years old, I knew I was gonna be a quarterback here, knew we were gonna do great things this year, and that’s me birthing it into existence.”Haskins completed 34-of-41 passes for 499 yards and five touchdowns with one interception. The completions, yards and touchdown passes were all records for the Big Ten Championship.During the most impressive performance of his collegiate career, Haskins passed Barrett for the most total touchdowns in a single season in Big Ten history.He beat his own program record of 470 passing yards he set in the loss to Purdue, and earned his fifth game of 400 passing yards or more. Every other quarterback in Ohio State history has combined for one of those games.“I mean it is what it is, he be doing it all year,” redshirt junior wide receiver K.J. Hill said. “I feel like he should be in New York and win the Heisman.”The Heisman race has officially opened up after Alabama sophomore quarterback Tua Tagovailoa was injured in the third quarter after throwing 10-of-25 for 164 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions.Tagovailoa, Haskins and Oklahoma redshirt junior quarterback Kyler Murray appear to be the lead candidates after Saturday’s games, and Haskins still may be the least likely of the trio to end up with the trophy.But the redshirt sophomore has found a way to win games like Saturday’s Big Ten Championship all season long.With the Ohio State run game regressing to 2.3 yards per carry, Haskins opened up Northwestern’s zone defense — designed to allow short-yardage plays, but stop deep balls — with touchdown passes of 29 and 42 yards, as well as another 63-yard throw to redshirt senior wide receiver Johnnie Dixon.The 42-yard score was to redshirt senior wide receiver Terry McLaurin perfectly in stride over McLaurin’s shoulder on the right sideline.McLaurin said he often doesn’t have to do much because of his quarterback’s accuracy.“It makes my job a lot easier,” McLaurin said. “A lot of my passes this season have been right in my bread basket. All I gotta do is catch it.”Haskins’ day was not without errors.In the second quarter, Haskins had Hill open on the left side of the field, but the redshirt sophomore overthrew it, giving the Wildcats an easy interception.But for the crucial error in the first half, there were plenty of highlight moments to make up for it.Haskins showed his improved footwork with a 16-yard touchdown pass to McLaurin on a perfect throw to the corner of the end zone to get Ohio State up early. In the second half, Haskins found Dixon on the 63-yard throw, the entirety of the yards picked up through the air.Whether he is going to the College Football Playoff or, more likely, the Rose Bowl, Haskins is satisfied with the season his team has put together.“Any team would want to be 12-1 and win a conference championship, so whether that’s in the playoffs or the Rose Bowl, you know it’s just an opportunity to play for the university, play for each other,” Haskins said. “Regardless of whether you make the playoffs or not, and I’m just happy to be a part of this team.”Haskins, 13 starts later, now sits atop as one of the most prolific passers Ohio State has ever had.The redshirt sophomore who was once committed to Maryland, who knew the whole time he was going to be the guy, has become the guy who nearly threw for 500 yards in the Big Ten Championship.Only time will tell if Haskins has done enough to be invited as a Heisman trophy nominee. Haskins said he feels he has “a pretty good shot,” but to head coach Urban Meyer, there should be no doubt.“He’s without question a Heisman candidate. I’ve seen the statistics of the other two great players, and there’s no doubt. Dwayne Haskins is a Heisman candidate, and he should be in New York City.” read more

Eriksen admits Denmark should have beaten lucky Australia

first_imgWhile describing Australia’s penalty decision as “lucky”, Christian Eriksen was adamant that Denmark should have put the game beyond doubt beforehand after having to settle for a 1-1 drawThe Danish playmaker produced a sublime finish in the seventh minute of the game at the Samara Arena following Nicolai Jorgensen’s clever lay-off to hand Denmark an early lead.However, Yussuf Poulsen’s handball in the penalty area was penalised by VAR after protests by the Australian players had been initially waved off by the referee.Poulsen was also booked for the incident, after conceding his second penalty at Russia, and will now be unavailable for Denmark in their final Group C game.Australia captain Mile Jedinak then converted from the spot to level the score at 1-1.Christian Eriksen, Tottenham, SpursPochettino: ‘Happy’ Christian Eriksen ready for Spurs action Andrew Smyth – September 12, 2019 Mauricio Pochettino insists Christian Eriksen is “happy” and in the right frame of mind for Tottenham despite his failed summer exit.After enjoying a period of dominance, Denmark were unable to break through the Australia defence again and were denied the chance to qualify for the Round of 16.“If you look at the first 20 minutes, it should have been a win,” said Eriksen, according to ESPN.“But Australia had a bit more the upper hand after that, and of course they were lucky with the decision. That’s how it is.“There is a handball in the penalty area, but it’s not really an unnatural situation. If you go in for a duel, of course, you’re going to use your hands to jump. But the decision has to be correct — maybe it’s too correct.”Denmark with meet France for their final Group C match at Moscow’s Luzhniki Stadium on 26 June (16:00 GMT+2)last_img read more
