Oracle/Sun Deal Not Out of Hot Water Yet

first_imgCognitive Automation is the Immediate Future of… Tags:#enterprise#news Massive Non-Desk Workforce is an Opportunity fo… IT + Project Management: A Love Affair steven wallingcenter_img Related Posts The U.S. Department of Justice may have approved the purchase of Sun Microsystems by Oracle, but the deal still could be delayed by yet another institution. The Brussels-based European Commission still has 48 hours to open an in-depth investigation, reports Reuters, and the DOJ’s European counterparts are looking much more closely at Oracle owning MySQL. Is a leading enterprise vendor buying out its open source competition a violation of antitrust laws? In its approval the U.S. authorities cited no concern about MySQL, and focused largely on Java licensing issues. Sun’s shareholders voted to go ahead with the multi-billion dollar deal back in July, when it was still under scrutiny from the DOJ. IBM and HP have wasted no time trying to steal away Sun customers in the server market. By offering financial incentives and implying that Oracle is moving outside its core competency by purchasing a hardware maker, the two companies aim to undercut Oracle during a time of transition. The European Commission is reportedly still in debate at this time over whether to investigate Oracle more closely. Unlike the DOJ, Reuter’s sources report that the Europeans are concerned over Oracle, a leader in the enterprise database market, owning a key open source competitor. Since Oracle’s purchase of Sun, interest in MySQL forks has shot up among developers. Prominent examples include MariaDB (created by a co-founder of MySQL) and Drizzle, as well as open source alternative PostgreSQL. 3 Areas of Your Business that Need Tech Nowlast_img read more

Watch: Pakistan batsman Azhar Ali’s comical run out against Australia

first_imgPakistan’s batsman Azhar Ali may have just had one of the silliest dismissals in the history of cricket.The incident took place on Day 3 morning in the 53rd over of Pakistan’s second innings of the second Test. Australia’s Peter Siddle was prodding away outside off with his sly out swingers, but on the third ball of the over, he got a slight edge off the blade of Azhar Ali’s bat.Fortunately for Azhar, the ball was safe and went through the gully region avoiding the stretched fingers of the fielders surrounding him. The ball, as it seemed was destined for the boundary ropes.Pakistan vs Australia – 2nd Test Day 3Azhar in nonchalant manner, walked over to his partner to discuss whatever that batsmen discuss in between overs.But plot twist! The ball had in turn slowed down as it rolled closer to the ropes and stopped just short. Mitchell Starc huffed and puffed his way over to the third man boundary to retrieve the ball, all the while the batsmen chatted away oblivious to what was going on. Starc collected the ball and returned it with darting throw to an eager Tim Paine behind the stumps.The batsmen looked on as Paine swiftly removed the bails. The Australian players cheered and congratulated themselves and yet still Azhar stood dumbfounded, rooted in the middle of the pitch.What did I jut watch on my telly… #AUSvsPAK Piddle (@iamreek0) October 18, 2018All the hard work from the previous day was undone by sheer naivety. He walked back to the pavilion, his 29th Test fifty meant nothing as his coach Mikey Arthur shook his head in disbelief. Australia needed a wicket as Pakistan kept piling on the mountain of runs for them to chase, and it came in the most ridiculous of ways.advertisementLabuschagne’s : Crap, I made a fool of myself yesterdayAzhar Ali: No you didn’t (@Azarobi) October 18, 2018When my friend is eating my share of pizza but I can’t do anything about it !!#PAKvAUS #AUSvPAK #Azharali Shinde (@imsgshinde) October 18, 2018Azhar Ali edged the ball through the gully thought it has gone for FOUR, both batsman stood at the center & started talking to each other without watching the ball.Starc ran behind the ball & threw it back to the keeper who ran Azhar Out.What a shame !#PAKvAUS #PAKvsAUS (@iSaadAwais22) October 18, 2018Azhar’s dismissal isn’t the only one that comes to mind when one talks about silly run outa.

Summer Shoppers Active in Secondhand Market

first_imgThe sale and purchase market of secondhand vessels is experiencing positive vibes as summer shoppers avail of the asset prices on the market. According to the latest weekly report from shipbroker Lion Shipbrokers, the week was very active, as  3 panamaxes, 3 supras & 2 handies changed hands.“Almost all of the units have been committed to the usual Greek and Chinese summer shoppers,”  said Lion Shipbrokers.Lion reported that “the Chinese buyers continue to sweep nineties built panamaxes; Vogeman’s VOGE WEST attracted $5 mill (which translates to $471 per lt) while RZS JOY & CSK UNITY changed hands within China for a soft $5.5 mill and $6 mill respectively.Clients of Technomar have agreed to pay a soft $19-$19.5 mill for supramax BLUE OCEAN, almost the same level as three years older MANDARIN HARVEST sold for $19 mill also to Greeks, two weeks ago. Japanese controlled supramax BULK LEO has attracted a firm $22.7 mill from Greek buyers compared with this month’s earlier deal of one year older sister BRIGHT MOON  for $21 mill.At an auction by sealed tender, organized by the Admiralty Marshal in Falmouth, England, clients of Eastmed of Greece were the highest bidders, paying $17.2 mill for the open hatch 8 holds/8 hatches configuration box hold supramax SANKO MINERAL.Japanese controlled, 2-generator handy unit ATLANTIC ARROW was snapped by clients of British Bulkers of Greece for a soft $12.5 mill, while last month, one year older but similar unit BUMBI was sold for $13.25 million”, Lion Shipbrokers’ report reads.With respect to newbuilds,  Chinese yards benefited the most during this week, according to shipbroker Clarkson Hellas, COSCO being the most prominent one mostly for bulk carriers, seven of them exactly. The tanker market was not that active, with only Nova Shipping & Logistics (Singapore) contracting two firm 34,500 DWT coated chemical tankers at Taizhou Sanfu.Finally, in the demolition market, the  subcontinent market is keeping its momentum, as explained by Lion, with Pakistan “really hungry for tonnage and is taking advantage of the Indian bad weather conditions by offering more aggressively and acquiring the majority of demo-candidates out there. China has softened even further (by $10 per lt) since last week, as the local construction industry is absorbing less & less steel, and local experts do not foresee any significant improvement in the near future. Turkey remains stable but with negative prospects (at least until the end of the Ramadan month) resulting to fewer candidates choosing Aliaga shores for their final destination.”last_img read more
