It’s fair to say that Fulham didn’t do themselves justice on their return to the Premier League last season. A miserable campaign saw just seven wins, 26 points, and a 19th place finish as the Cottagers dropped straight back down to the Championship.This season, though, Fulham have dusted themselves off and are doing well in the Championship. They currently sit in fourth place after beating west London rivals QPR at Craven Cottage, five points off the automatic promotion spots. They are one of the favourites for promotion in Championship betting odds.Bossing thingsEven towards the end of last season, there were signs that Scott Parker was beginning to have a positive effect on his team. That upturn in spirits around the club has continued in this campaign, with Parker looking more and more comfortable in his managerial role.Parker played for Fulham for four seasons between 2013 and 2017, so he knows what it means to wear the shirt and understands that fans expect the club to be playing top-flight football. He was a popular figure during his playing days at the club, which means he enjoys a similar affinity with the supporters as their manager.He has been realistic about Fulham’s chances and understands that there will be difficulties in such a competitive division. “If we had a magic wand and could just click our fingers and get success, life would be easy,” he said. “I realise there are going to be some bumps this year because we cannot go from where we were last year to all of a sudden being unreal. We want to take quick steps but we understand there is a process.”Forward firepowerOne of the main reasons Fulham have enjoyed success this season is the presence of Aleksandar Mitrović up front. The Serbian is top of the Championship scoring charts with 12 goals, continuing the good form he’s shown throughout his time at the club.Mitrović is the perfect striker for the Championship. He possesses a bullish quality that makes him a nightmare for defenders to deal with. Combined with his instinctive finishing ability, these attributes give the Serbian international the potential to create goals out of nothing.Fulham fans will also be pleased to see Aboubakar Kamara return to form. Kamara came into the side for the QPR match as Mitrović was suspended, and scored a brace to secure victory. Kamara and Mitrović made headlines last season after fighting over who should take a penalty, but if the pair could establish a partnership up front then Fulham would have attacking firepower unmatched in the rest of the division.Experienced headsAs well as dangerous attacking options, Fulham have a core group of players who have the experience of winning promotion through the playoffs in 2017-18. The likes of captain Tom Cairney, Denis Odoi, Stefan Johansen and Tim Ream have been there and done it as far as Championship promotion is concerned.This could make all the difference towards the end of the season. If Fulham make the playoffs, those players will know what it takes to get over the line. That experience will have a positive effect on the whole squad and will be key if the Championship table remains as tight as it is currently.Fulham have all the tools required to mount a serious promotion push, but as Parker alluded to, the road to Championship success is never straightforward. The early signs are strong, and Fulham have a good blend of youth and experience in the side that could make all the difference at the end of the season.

The 83rd Academy Awards were broadcast this evening. The stories that will wrap up the evening’s awards, fashion, and festivities are sure to focus on the winners, on the dresses, on the really really really badly scripted banter. But for those of us tuning in via Twitter, I’d say the show was a great success. It provided plenty of material for running commentary, historical insights, quips and quibbles. For the funniest original writing, for example, I’d give a nod to Roseanne Cash for her #JaneAustinattheOscars tweets.All the tweets, not just those from celebrities and insiders, were vastly more entertaining than the show itself, and the reason I’d wager that a whole new crowd of curious onlookers are tuning in. It’s not about watching the Oscars per se. It’s about being able to participate in the online community that’s watching the Oscars. It’s no longer sufficient to wait for the water cooler, to invoke a tried morning-after cliche. It’s about checking-in and chatting with others and sharing the broadcast together.In addition to Twitter, another winner from this evening’s event, unannounced on stage of course but featured prominently elsewhere, may be the entertainment check-in site GetGlue, which saw over 31,000 check-ins to the Oscars tonight.In fact, the Oscars worked directly with GetGlue to help incentivize check-ins before and during the broadcast, creating a set of GetGlue stickers that could be earned when fans checked-in to the Oscars broadcast. The Academy also embedded a GetGlue widget on its website. At one point this evening, founder and CEO Alex Iskold said that one out of every 12 tweets about the broadcast was emanating from GetGlue; at the peak of the event GetGlue was seeing two shares per second. Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… GetGlue’s partnership with the Oscars comes on the heels of its campaign with CBS for the Grammys, which coincidentally had the highest ratings in over the decade. And the partnership with GetGlue was just one of many steps that the Oscars took this year in order to capture the young demographic, one that has in previous years been uninterested in the almost century-old tradition of Hollywood’s “biggest night.” The Oscars also released an app for iPhone and iPad that, for $.09, gave users a behind-the-scenes glimpse at the evening’s festivities. And it offered a premium service (for $4.99) to stream this content via its website. That interest and participation in these televised events from the social media audience is becoming key. And speaking for myself, for perhaps my Twitter stream, and for thousands of Twitterati and GetGlue users, it was that real-time commentary and check-ins that made the event engaging.

Can you think of other smartphone principles? I think these are a good start. I am a conflicted tech reporter. I started covering the technology beat because of my love for the power of the smartphone. But the conspicuous consumption of gadgets, with its attendant human and environmental costs, makes me feel as though I’m complicit in injustice. To reconcile these feelings, I’ve settled on five principles for owning a smartphone. They help me use my device to its fullest potential.1. I will make things with my smartphone.Smartphones are not just for email, Facebook and fantasy football. They are multi-sensory assistant droids that extend our powers of creativity and observation. They’re loaded with powerful cameras, microphones and accelerometers. We can interact with the info they store with our fingers or our voices. They can communicate with other computers. And there’s an app for everything.To take full advantage of these pocket-sized supercomputers is to be a more dynamic, fully realized human being. Communicate visions with Instagram! Tweet or blog observations! Capture inspiring quotations and share them with friends! Damn the data trail, track my location and create a spatial record of life being lived! Why? Why not?2. I will help people with my smartphone.If I meet someone on the street who needs directions, I will show him or her the way with my best map app. If someone needs a question answered, I’ll look it up for them. If a friend drops her keys in the movie theater, I’ll use the light to help her find them. If someone needs a locksmith or a mechanic or a police officer, I’ve got a way to help right in my pocket. 3. I will support my community with my smartphone.Smartphones are not just personally empowering. They are sensitive data nodes that can make a whole city smarter. My location info helps Google, Apple and other mapping companies compute local traffic patterns. My city of San Francisco ties me into civic meetings via smartphone.In Portland, Oregon, where I used to live, an app called PDX Reporter for iPhone and Android lets residents report potholes, graffiti, street light outages and other problems by submitting a location-tagged report. I could even upload a photo. When a program like that becomes available here, I’ll use it.4. I will not needlessly replace my smartphone.This is the one that weighs on me the most. Smartphone manufacturing comes with labor problems and environmental damage. Smartphone use drains the planet of energy and resources. There’s no such thing as a purely ethical smartphone, so any purchase is a compromise.And yet we love our gadgets. Great new phones come out every year (if you’re an Apple user) or freaking constantly (if you’re an Android user). Smartphones are hardly just for geeks anymore, but they’re certainly for people who love technology. Sometimes it’s hard to resist buying the latest technology if you love it.I will resist it. My phone could land Apollo 11 on the moon in the background while I play Angry Birds. If it can do what I need it to do, I will not replace it. I will keep it until a new one comes along that blows it away in so many ways that it makes me faster, better and stronger. And if I can’t find someone who needs my old one, I will do whatever I can to recycle it.5. I will put away my smartphone.My smartphone is a portal to vast worlds, but I will not let that alienate me from my physical surroundings, especially the people. If I’m with people, I don’t need a phone to mediate my interaction anymore, so I will keep it in my pocket. I will check my notifications later. I will use it only if I need directions or an answer to a question. Then I will put it back in my pocket.Samsung’s depiction of addicted iPhone users Tags:#mobile#web Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement Related Posts What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces jon mitchell The Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technology
