Oblak will play Champions League football in with Atleti this term, while Chelsea will compete in the Europa League 2 Jan Oblak would be worth every penny of his €100million release clause if Chelsea opt to land him as a replacement for Thibaut Courtois……but a Spanish football journalist has questioned why the goalkeeper would want to leave Atletico Madrid for the London club.With Courtois looking set to join Real Madrid before the end of the summer transfer window, Chelsea are on the hunt for a new number one.If the Belgian departs, it would leave the Blues with Willy Caballero and Rob Green as the only senior goalkeepers in their squad. “Jan Oblak is one of the best goalkeepers in the world, without a shadow of a doubt.“If Chelsea were to sell Thibaut Courtois and bring in Jan Oblak, he would be an extraordinary replacement.“At €100m he would be the most expensive goalkeeper of all time, but he is so good he is almost worth it, almost good value.“He’s an excellent player.”Listen back to Phil Kitromilides on talkSPORT IN FULL above 2 Courtois is expected to join Real Madrid before the summer transfer window shuts Former Liverpool glovesman Pepe Reina has been linked with a move to Stamford Bridge, as has Stoke City’s England goalkeeper Jack Butland.But reports from Spain on Tuesday have claimed Chelsea will look to trigger Oblak’s €100m (£89m) buy-out clause to sign the highly-rated 25-year-old from Atletico.However, Spanish football commentator and host of the Spanish Football Podcast, Phil Kitromilides, believes moving to Stamford Bridge would currently be a massive step down for the Slovenian.“With all due respect to Chelsea, I don’t think Jan Oblak would be battering down the doors to move to Stamford Bridge,” he told Tuesday’s Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast.“Atletico Madrid are in the Champions League, have a really good chance to push for LaLiga and Madrid is a wonderful place to live in terms of climate and lifestyle.“But obviously Chelsea have the financial clout to tempt him.

Don’t install free applications from the Internet without understanding what else may be installed (if at work – make sure it’s permitted by your organization’s policy)Even commonly used applications (e.g., Flash, Java) may install additional programs – make sure you deselect the option to install the “promoted” apps.If you already have one of these applications or toolbars how do you get rid of it?If you find you have installed something you didn’t want, you’ll need to uninstall it manually. The first place to check is the Programs or Add/Remove Programs application within the Control Panel (on Windows). You may also need to look at the add-ons or extensions within each browser and remove from there, and possibly reset your homepage and default search engine if they’ve been changed.Author: Stephen Judd (+Stephen Judd, @sjudd)This article (I downloaded what?) was originally published Thursday July 18, 2013 on the Military Families Learning Network blog, a part of eXtension. This work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Unported License. As computer users, we often run into situations where we need an additional program to accomplish something, and it often happens at the last minute. Beware of what additional software may be hitching a ride with that nifty little program!ScenarioAn educator, Chris, wants a copy of a YouTube video to show to a class while not online (we’ll disregard the copyright caveats today). The educator next door suggests that Chris download a YouTube capture program to save the video locally. Being a saavy user, Chris goes to a site like download.com because they screen for malware and are owned by CBS.Chris finds the program and clicks the download link. Since there’s only an hour until the workshop, Chris clicks that they’ve read the user agreement and accepts all of the install defaults. Chris captures the YouTube video and uses it in the presentation and is quite pleased.The next day, Chris’ homepage and default search engine have been changed, and there are all sorts of links and ads on pages where there shouldn’t be.What happened?When Chris installed the program, the installer included a bunch of “helpful” applications (most in the form of browser add-ons) that modified the browser. These changes result in special affiliate links and ads that generate income for the company that created the installer.While small software utilities are often “free” to the end-user, they do cost time and money to develop and maintain. Developers realize that users like Chris may not be willing to pay for an application that only gets used a handful of times. So the developer works with a company that packages the installer for their app, and in return gets paid for each download.Now Chris isn’t happy, and the IT department probably isn’t either. These tag alongs can be difficult to remove and can ruin the user experience on the web.TakeawaysDon’t just accept the defaults, be aware of what other programs are being installedYou don’t really need a toolbar, coupon reminder, or the like. read more
The BJP on Monday announced Bhojpuri film star Ravi Kishan as its Lok Sabha candidate from Gorakhpur, the bastion of U.P. Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, instead of the widely-speculated candidature of sitting MP Praveen Nishad who recently joined the party.Mr. Nishad has been fielded from Sant Kabir Nagar, with the BJP dropping sitting MP Sharad Tripathi who had created a political storm by beating a local BJP MLA with shoes.Tripathi from DeoriaHowever, the BJP MLA’s father Ramapati Ram Tripathi has been given the party ticket from neighbouring Deoria, as per the latest party list of seven candidates in Uttar Pradesh.Mr. Ramapati Tripathi was the U.P.

Cooperative Minister Mukut Bihari from Ambedkarnagar. It has also given ticket to Sangam Lal Gupta from Pratapgarh, the parliamentary constituency that was won by BJP ally Apna Dal in 2014.
