Credit the good purses, the good racing surfaces and the greatweather, but whatever it is, from north to south, California currently is the home of the best and the brightest in the business, to wit:Los Alamitos Race Course in Orange County is the headquarters of 2014 Horse of the Year California Chrome; Golden Gate Fields in the Bay Area is the stomping grounds of the best horse in America, Santa Anita Handicap winner Shared Belief; Santa Anita is the permanent residence of the two Kentucky Derby favorites, American Pharoah and Dortmund; and, with all due respect to Untapable, the home court of the best older mares in training, Beholder and Warren’s Veneda.“It’s paradise on earth,” said native Los Angelino Craig Lewis, who trains Warren’s Veneda, the streaking California-bred mare who has won three straight, including the Grade I Santa Margarita Stakes on March 14.“The surfaces and the purses are very good, and you can’t beat the weather,” Lewis said. “Hot Springs (Oaklawn Park in Arkansas) calls me every day trying to get me to run Warren’s Veneda there (in the Grade I, $600,000 Apple Blossom on April 10), and I said to the guy, ‘Why would I come all the way across the country to run against the best mare in the country, Untapable?’“And he told me, ‘You’ve got the best mare in the country.’“You can’t beat the weather we’ve got.

These are two good horses.“One thing about Baffert: he gets good horses and he’s not afraid to train them.”In other Santa Anita Derby news:Trainer Jim Cassidy said he may opt out of the Santa Anita Derby in favor of the Blue Grass Stakes at Keeneland on April 4 for Delta Jackpot winner Ocho Ocho Ocho, who suffered superficial leg cuts when finishing eighth behind Dortmund in the San Felipe Stakes.In either case, his current go-to rider, Santiago Gonzalez, would have the mount.Santa Anita offers a $750,000 guaranteed Late Pick 4 pool and a $300,000 guaranteed Pick 6 pool on Santa Anita Derby Day. -30-
URUGUAYAN MARE GENEROSIDADE BLOWS OUT TOTE BOARD WITH 71-1 WIN IN GRADE II, $200,000 SAN LUIS REY STAKES; PEREIRA & LOBO TEAM FOR 1 ½ LENGTH WIN GOING MILE & ONE HALF ON TURF IN 2:28.80
ARCADIA, Calif. (March 13, 2016)–In a massive upset, 71-1 longshot Generosidade flew late to take Sunday’s Grade II, $200,000 San Luis Rey Stakes under Tiago Pereira by 1 ½ lengths while covering a mile and one half on a turf course listed as “good” in 2:28.80. Trained by Paulo Lobo, Uruguayan-bred Generosidade made her third stateside start today.“I was so excited because this is my (second) graded win in North America,” said an ebullient Pereira, who like Lobo, is a Brazilian native. “Generosidade was so good today. We sat behind, we let the pace go and the last three eighths, I was able to get outside and get up to win it.“Paulo told me to relax the first part of the race in the other three times I rode her (three) because she liked to do that when she ran in Brazil. But, in the three races she’s run here, they were not so good…Her last work was good and today she was too good for them.”The longest shot in a field of 10 older horses that included four females, Generosidade paid $144.80, $45.60 and $17.60.Owned by her breeder, Haras Phillipson, Inc., Generosidade got her fifth win from 16 lifetime starts and with the winner’s share of $120,000, increased her earnings to $206,894.“She’s a marathon horse,” said Lobo. “She loves the distance and we were looking for a mile and a half. She had her (recent) race (finishing sixth in the 1 ½ miles turf Astra Stakes here on Jan. 17). I think the rain helped me because she’s seven years old. She has issues, little problems, and the softer ground helped her.Trained by Ron McAnally and ridden by Tyler Baze, Chilean-bred Quick Casablanca rallied boldly from far back to be second, finishing a neck in front of Brazilian-bred Energia Fribby. Off at 10-1, Quick Casablanca paid $11.00 and $5.60.“I tried to thread the needle (at the top of the lane) and a horse stopped in front of me,” said Baze. “The horse is on the top of his game right now. He’s doing awesome. I can’t wait for the next one.”Ridden by Drayden Van Dyke, Energia Fribby, a 6-year-old mare, rallied wide-out and finished third, a neck in front of Highball. Off at 30-1, Energia Fribby paid $12.00 to show.Fractions on the race were 24.18, 47.61, 1:12.29, 1:38.20 and 2:03.83.There is a massive two-day Pick Six carryover into Thursday at Santa Anita of $548,670.

A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… marshall kirkpatrick Like a prism to a ray of sunlight, stream-hacking startup Mediasift CEO Nick Halstead took the stage today with Twitter’s Ryan Sarver at the Data 2.0 conference to announce Twitter’s second data resales channel partnership. Halstead’s service will allow customers to parse the full Twitter fire hose along any of the 40 fields of data hidden inside every Tweet, with the addition of augmented data layers from services including Klout (influence metrics), PeerIndex (influence), Qwerly (linked social media accounts) and Lexalytics (text and sentiment analysis). Storage, post-processing and historical snapshots will also be available.The price? Dirt cheap. Halstead told me after the announcement that customers would be able to apply as many as 10,000 keyword filters to the fire hose for as little as 30 cents an hour. The most computationally expensive filtering Mediasift will offer won’t be priced above $8k per year. (Pricing approximate but indicative, Halstead says.) What does this mean? It means that far more developers than ever before will now have a stable, officially approved and very affordable way to access highly targeted slices of data. Twitter just found a way to hand developers an Amazon River’s worth of golden tinker-toys, each with more than 40 points of contact, at commodity prices. 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Above: Thanks to Qwerly integration, when you look at a Twitter @username – Mediasift sees more than just the Twitter profile. It sees @username who has bookmarks saved online, plans for public events to attend, photos shared publicly with friends, check-ins to places around town and much more. Any of those are like columns in a spreadsheet of Twitter search results. Show me Tweets with any of the following keywords by people planning to attend event A and who have been to place B or C. Thanks to Qwerly, Twitter didn’t just get a giant new developer search and filter feature – it got integration with a whole lot of other social services. Throw in sentiment and authority filtering and it’s like the social graph just exploded. (Update: Qwerly won’t be live for another week, Halstead says. Likewise, thousands of people have requested and granted Mediasift invites but Halstead says the site will open to the public in coming weeks.)You can make a filtering rule, make it public or private, share and comment on other peoples’ rules and more. While Twitter’s partnership with bulk data reseller Gnip (announced in November) offered half the fire hose in bulk for a whopping $360k or 5% of the fire hose for $60k per year – Mediasift prices and use cases will be very different. Pricing will be modeled like Amazon Cloud Computing and each function’s cost will be spelled out as the user requests it. Geo-filtering is expensive, keyword filtering is cheap – for example. Keyword filtering is done, stable and available now. Storage of the data for post-processing and snapshots of historical data are described as in alpha stages.Want a feed of negative Tweets written by C-level execs about any of 10,000 keywords? Trivial! Basic level service, Halstead says! Want just the Tweets that fit those criteria and are from the North Eastern United States? That you’ll have to pay a little extra for. The possibilities are staggering.All the message contents, all the bio contents, bio contents from other social services (like LinkedIn) associated to peoples’ Twitter accounts via Qwerly, sentiment analysis – all of these will be points of contact where filtering can occur. Want a feed of negative Tweets written by C-level execs about any of 10,000 keywords? Trivial! Basic level service, Halstead says! Want just the Tweets that fit those criteria and are from the North Eastern United States? That you’ll have to pay a little extra for. The possibilities are staggering.Below: This is what a Tweet looks like. Every little message has more than 40 different fields. Mediasift customers will be able to filter the full Twitter fire hose by any of those fields or by data from additional 3rd party services.“Twitter is moving up the value chain by offering the high-level information that developers want,” said ReadWriteWeb contributor and leading social data hacker Pete Warden about the announcement. “Rather than selling commodity information for further processing, this partnership offers a narrow but deep slice.”This is a bet on a future wherein greater value is built by widespread, low-cost access to social data on the part of many and diverse developers. It’s not just raw data either, it’s really rich. It’s the opposite of what the Gnip announcement signalled and what many people have feared – that Twitter would horde its river of data and sell it just to high bidders.More on this in the coming days. I’m very excited to start hacking on it all with ReadWriteWeb’s team of developers.

In a battle of two teams that have already secured home-court advantage in the playoffs, Real Madrid secured a top-two finish at the end of the regular season with a hard-fought 73-79 win over Olympiacos Piraeus at Peace and Friendship Stadium on Friday night. Madrid improved to 21-7 and left it in the driver’s seat knowing two wins in the last two games will secure it first place at the end of the regular season. Olympiacos dropped to 19-9 and remains in the third place. Neither team had a double-digit lead the entire night, but Madrid’s Anthony Randolph and Sergio Llull, scoring 21 points apiece, got the better of the Olympiacos defense and kept the visitors in front throughout the fourth quarter. Llull also dished 5 assists, while Randolph pulled down 5 boards and had 4 blocks. Othello Hunter scored 10 points in victory. Nikola Milutinov paced the hosts with a career-high 18 points, Kostas Papanikolaou added 11 points and 6 rebounds and Dimitrios Agravanis scored 10 for Olympiacos, which played without Georgios Printezis due to illness.The teams traded blows the entire first half. Olympiacos was the team to go in front first, with Milutinov scoring 9 points and grabbing a pair of offensive rebounds. An offensive board by Papanikolaou led to a big dunk from Ioannis Papapetrou and an 18-10 lead. But after a timeout, Llull and Randolph scored 9 points, including a Llull three-pointer in the last second that cut it to 20-19 after 10 minutes. The second quarter alone featured nine lead changes and four ties. Erick Green and Matt Lojeski nailed threes for the hosts, but Randolph scored on two fast breaks and hit a corner three-pointer. The teams were appropriately tied at 37-37 at halftime, then each made its own runs in the third quarter. Papanikolaou and Vassilis Spanoulis hit triples at the start of the third to opena 6-point lead for the hosts, but three-pointers from Jeffrey Taylor and Jonas Maciulis got Madrid back within a single possession. Randolph and Llull hit tough shots, and Llull also nailed a three-pointer that got Madrid in front 52-56. It turned out the visitors took the lead for good. Madrid led 54-58 going into the fourth quarter and Randolph made a pair of tough baskets before Hunter added a tip-in and put through the rim a tough alley-oop pass from Llull. That made it 60-68, and a Llull basket opened a 63-72 advantage. Olympiacos made another charge, with Vangelis Mantzaris driving to the hoop, Spanoulis hitting from long range, and Papanikolaou fighting for a close-range basket that made it 70-73. But in the final minute, Llull went length of the floor for a fastbreak layup, before Randolph’s free throws sealed the deal.Source: EuroleagueTweetPinShare0 Shares

Share your voice Love Syncs Culture Comments Got a sec to chat? Image Source / Getty Welcome to CNET’s Love Syncs, where we answer your questions about online dating. I’m Erin Carson, staff reporter, resident young-enough person, refrigerdating correspondent, curator of oddities and the one most likely to leave you on “read.”This week, one reader wants to know what the deal is with video calling before meeting. Let me fix my hair real quick and we’ll get to it. Q: When did FaceTime before meeting become a thing? It’s weird.— S.A. HONESTLY? I have no idea. But yeah, sometimes people ask to video chat or hop on the phone before going out on a date. Let me walk you through a few reasons why that might be, and why it also might not be as weird as it seems. For one, let’s talk about the weird part. Look, anything’s weird if you think about it too much. Have you looked at a seal recently? Like really looked at it? I’d err less on the side of it being weird so much as awkward. And awkward isn’t necessarily bad, it’s just a byproduct of two randos trying to assess each other for dating and maybe even longterm romantic partnership purposes. (See, you can make anything weird if you think about it too much!)Setting up a call in advance of a date can serve as a safety precaution. As much as we want to assume the best of each other, there are people out there on the apps with bad intentions. The FTC even made this groovy little cartoon about what to do if someone on a dating app asks you for money. Spoiler: They’re scamming you. Hold onto your cash like the last big screen TV at a Walmart on Black Friday.For all you know, the person you’re talking to could be a penguin with an internet connection. And, possibly, thumbs. THAT would be something. Anyway. Bumble even rolled out in-app video calling and voice chat in June partially under the banner of safety. A quick call could also be helpful in determining if you want to go out with a person at all. A voice like Gilbert Gottfried might be a deal breaker for you. Or not! Maybe you’re into that. Good for you. Don’t forget, though, meeting IRL can also give you the benefit of reading body language and other non-verbal cues that can tell you what you need to know about a person. Ultimately, you’ve got to do what makes you comfortable. Don’t be afraid to ask. If someone asks you for a call, now you know what could possibly be motivating that request. But also, if you’re super queasy about giving out personal info, that is also valid. If you feel sketched out at any point for any reason, unmatch, hang up, walk away or jetpack outta there. CNET’s Love Syncs is an advice column focusing on online dating. If you’ve got a question about finding love via app, send it to firstname.lastname@example.org for consideration. 4 Tags

Hugh Jackman-starrer Pan, the retelling of fictional character Peter Pan, will now release on October 9 instead of July 24.“We wanted to give Pan the space to extend its theatrical run, so taking it out of the cluttered summer season made the most sense,” said Warner Bros’ domestic distribution head Dan Fellman, reports hollywoodreporter.com. “Moving the film to the heart of the fall will allow us more time to screen the picture, enabling us to capitalise on what we anticipate will be strong word of mouth,” he added.The fantasy drama directed by Joe Wright also stars Levi Miller, Rooney Mara, Garrett Hedlund and Amanda Seyfried.
