Football News More than 250 applicants for Indian football team coach’s job

first_imgNew Delhi: The Indian football team’s spirited showings in recent times seem to be having a ripple effect with the position of the men’s coach attracting over 250 applications, an unprecedented number that also includes some well-known names from Europe.The post has been left vacant since Stephen Constantine resigned following the Indian team’s failure to make the knockouts of the AFC Asian Cup after coming close to doing so.Contrary to speculations doing the rounds, All India Football Federation (AIFF) sources categorically denied that they are not exactly looking to recruit a high-profile name. In the recent past, AIFF general secretary Kushal Das had also said that they would appoint a coach based on the team’s requirements and not get carried away by big names.The list of applicants also includes coaches from the Indian Super League and I-League.”The big names doing the rounds need not necessarily fulfil the criteria of the AIFF. Early next week the concerned committee will make a short-list and the candidates would then be interviewed by the technical committee, and based on its recommendations, the executive committee would make the appointment from among the final list,” a well-placed AIFF source said.Established names doing the rounds are Italian Giovanni De Biasi, Hakan Ericson of Sweden, France’s Raymond Domnech and England’s Sam Allardyce.While these are undoubtedly big names, the AIFF has also received applications from people who do not have the credentials and licence.The deadline for applying for the top job ended on March 29.Among others, Bengaluru FC’s highly successful former coach Albert Roca has also emerged as the frontrunner for the job, with many national team players favouring his appointment.Under Roca, Bengaluru FC played four finals in his two seasons in charge – making the final of the AFC Cup in 2016, the Federation Cup in 2017 and the ISL and Super Cup in 2018.The team won the Federation Cup and the Super Cup, but missed out on the AFC Cup and the ISL titles.

Springing surprises of Jharkhand

first_imgTribal dances add colour and vigour to any local festivalDelightful trails that wind their way through pear orchards or lead to the shores of the serenely rippling lake await you in Jharkhand. If you’re adventurous enough to go deep into the forests, you may stumble on one of the leaf huts in which the local adivasis live, tucked away in the deepest shadow of the sal trees. And if you’re even luckier, you may tread in the footsteps of a tiger that has climbed the plateau. Satyajit Ray was so charmed by the forests that he shot parts of Aranyer Din Ratri here. Jharkhand, in the last five years, has wandered experimentally down new trails of many kinds.Metro mixEating options are everincreasing in the capitalUrban Jharkhand has always been developing in cities like Jamshedpur, but now Ranchi is catching up. The city has the Big Bazar shopping mall at its heart with all the convenience of electronics on the first floor, furniture on the second and fashions of the third. There’s a two-screen multiplex, Eylex showing the latest blockbusters and the Sujata Miniplex, that has been recently upgraded. The City Centre Mall is being built with Singapore consultancy and when complete, will include Ranchi’s first five-star hotel.Culture curryVisit tribal artists in Ranchi to pick up souvenirsIt isn’t all about modern shopping. Jharkhand is working on how best to display its traditions too. The Hotwar Museum is as recent as September 2009 and it sprawls over 10,000 sqm at the mega sports complex in Ranchi. Its air-conditioned interior houses an impressive collection of artefacts from the pre-historic and Harappan periods, along with recent historic finds excavated at Khukhragarh in the Ranchi district. Among must-sees are the prehistoric hand tools, monoliths and painted and unpainted pottery, some of them moulded between 1100-350 BC, the period in which Vyasa wrote the Mahabharata. There are also over a hundred 12th-century sculptures of Yakshas and Yakshinis found during an excavation at Ichagarh in East Singbhum.Another museum, this time focussing on Jharkhand’s tribals is to be found at the Sanskriti Centre in Hazaribagh. The Centre is housed in a heritage building set in the middle of six acres of lush orchards and trees. The museum houses a detailed archaeological record of the Hazaribagh region, ranging from the Lower Palaeolithic to the present, while the art gallery showcases 15 styles of painting in the Khovar and Sohrai schools with over 300 works of art on display.Tribal women artists exhibit their work at the gallery and, all in all, the Centre is a celebration of the colour and vibrancy of tribal life. In the last five years it has also worked around to developing its website so that it can appeal to a worldwide audience.Arty talesThe Hotwar Museum, a must visit, sprawls over 10,000 sqmHundreds of families of Amadubi village near Jamshedpur in Jharkhand have been illustrating local folk dances and tribal legends as well as other religious tales through the unique paintings that they have been making for centuries. What makes the paintings unique is the brightness and appeal of the illustrations that are made from different base media and colours ground from local herbs and stones. The tradition of paintings has been kept alive through the Guru-Shishya teaching method. The State Government is training the villagers to make their work more commercially sustainable.Tribal lifeAlong with art and culture, adivasi tourism is also developing fast. The Santhals are one of the oldest tribes in the country and then there are the Asurs, the Lohars and the Mundas. Some of them weave baskets, some are skilled blacksmiths forging intricate ornaments from iron, while others work with the bamboo. Thanks to a new tourism initiative many of these villages have opened up to tourists so that it is possible to sample their unspoilt way of life.Mine aheadOpt for the speedy way on the waters of JharkhandJharkhand has always been known for its mineral wealth, but there is an initiative to use the mines for something more than just minerals. Mining tourism is a concept that has been booming in Australia and South Africa and steps are being taken to make areas like the Regrappa mines and the North Karmpura mines in Ranchi district suitable for mining tourism. Hindustan Copper Ltd (HCL) and Central Coalfields Ltd (CCL) are consulting with the Jharkhand Tourism authorities and offering their mines for the experience.Festive spiritBig Bazar shopping mall in Ranchi is a huge step towards modernismThe Baba Baidyanath Vishva Mahotsav was kick-started in 2008 and ‘rollicking’ is how everyone describes the three-day affair. A blend of religion and adventure tourism, it gives visitors a chance to explore Deoghar’s temples and after the blessings try their hand at kayaking, snorkelling and yachting in 18 specially chosen lakes and rivers. Performers are brought in from the eastern states during August and there are also tribal dances and folk songs adding their rhythm.Adventure tourism is coming to Jharkhand in a big way promising to make life even more of an adventure in the coming days. With new hotels and a scenic setting, this is a destination that is sure to surprise the visitor.advertisementadvertisementFact fileAfter Australia and South Africa, mining tourism is now here to make wavesRanchi’s first five-star hotel Carlson Hotels Worldwide-Asia Pacific plans to open a Radisson hotel in Ranchi in April 2010.Hotwar Museum Mega Sports Complex, Hotwar, RanchiSanskriti Centre, Dipugarha, P.O.

ESPN Says These ACC Teams Are College Football Playoff Contenders

first_imgACC football logo.Twitter/@theACCESPN released a roundtable discussion Friday morning in which its college football writers decide just how many College Football Playoff contenders there are in each conference heading into 2016. As you’d expect, ESPN believes the ACC has two playoff contenders – Clemson and Florida State.From ESPN’s Andrea Adelson:For the first time, the ACC has multiple playoff contenders headed into the season: Clemson and Florida State. Their emergence has begun to change the narrative about ACC football, which has muscled its way into the national conversation over the past three seasons. So far, the league is 2-for-2 in getting teams into the College Football Playoff. (It also has the last BCS champion.) Whether it goes 3-for-3 largely depends on its two best teams: The Tigers hope to get back into the playoff for a second straight season behind Deshaun Watsonand seven other returning starters on offense; Florida State hopes to take down the Tigers behind Dalvin Cook and a stout defensive front. They meet Oct. 29 in Tallahassee, Florida. The winner has the inside track, though it probably has to end up undefeated to assure its playoff spot.The ACC has been decided during the annual meeting between the Seminoles and the Tigers for some time now, and that does’t appear to be changing in 2016. Louisville is a young, talented team that could cause some fits, and Miami has a leader in quarterback Brad Kaaya, but the conference will be won on October 29 in Tallahassee.

Minister says progress being made in settling agricultural claims with Treaty 8

first_imgOTTAWA, O.N. – Crown-Indigenous Relations and Northern Affairs Minister Carolyn Bennett says that progress is being made in negotiations with Treaty 8 First Nations around settling agricultural benefits claims.In a statement released Tuesday, Minister Bennett said that she participated with Treaty #8 First Nation Chiefs and community members in a ceremony recently to celebrate the recent progress the two parties have made in finding a solution to resolve longstanding claims. The Minister said that in the past year, the federal government and eighteen First Nations in Treaty #8 have successfully concluded negotiated settlements to resolve their agricultural benefits claims.“This is a decisive step forward to renew our relationship with and advance reconciliation with the following First Nations: Athabasca Chipewyan; Black Lake; Blueberry River; Doig River; Duncan’s; Fond du Lac; Fort McMurray; Fort Nelson; Halfway River; K’atlodeeche; Mikisew Cree; Prophet River; Saulteau; Sturgeon Lake Cree; Swan River; Tallcree; West Moberly; and Whitefish Lake,” said Bennett. “Settling claims is the right thing to do. Negotiated settlements help right past wrongs, honour treaty obligations and advance reconciliation with First Nations for the benefit of all Canadians. Settling claims is one of many steps on the journey of reconciliation with First Nations and helps create a better future for everyone.”last_img read more

Mallya takes swipe at NDA govt over PSU banks UK court pursuit

first_imgLondon: A day after a UK judge refused to dismiss an order freezing nearly 260,000 pounds (USD 337,730) in one of his London bank accounts, embattled liquor tycoon Vijay Mallya on Thursday questioned the SBI-led consortium of public sector banks pursuing him through the courts to recover dues they claim are owed to them. In his latest Twitter intervention, the 63-year-old former Kingfisher Airlines boss made another reference to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s interview last month in which he had claimed that the government has recovered assets worth Rs 14,000 crores related to the now-defunct airline’s loan defaults. Also Read – India gets first tranche of Swiss bank a/c details Mallya is wanted in India on charges of fraud and money laundering amounting to an alleged Rs 9,000 crores. “None other than the Prime Minister of India specifically says in an interview that his government has recovered more money than I allegedly owe PSU Banks and the same banks claim otherwise in English courts,” reads Mallya’s Tweet. “Who does one believe? One or the other is lying,” he said. His statement came hours after Master David Cook, a judge in the Queen’s Bench Division of the Royal Courts of Justice in London, ruled on Wednesday that an interim debt order in favour of SBI and other banks seeking access to funds in Mallya’s ICICI UK bank account “should remain in force”. However, the application to make it final has been adjourned until after the hearing of Mallya’s pending bankruptcy petition, expected by the end of this year. The funds held in the account 258,559.79 pounds will meanwhile remain frozen as part of the worldwide freezing order in favour of the Indian banks last year.last_img read more

Commentary Wayward Ohio StateMichigan rivalry will be rekindled

There is evidence to suggest the Ohio State versus Michigan football rivalry does not possess the same venom it once did, but the 2011 installment of “The Game” could reignite a once-passionate shared hatred between the two schools.The Buckeyes and Wolverines matchup has lacked interest of late, with Ohio State claiming six consecutive victory against “that team up north.” Not included in the winning streak is OSU’s 37-7 drubbing of Michigan in 2010 which was later vacated as part of the Buckeyes’ self-imposed penalties for NCAA rules infractions.During a Tuesday press conference, OSU coach Luke Fickell was asked if OSU players still define their careers by their performances against Michigan as they have been in years past.“It’s still the Ohio State-Michigan game, still the greatest rivalry in all sports,” Fickell said. “We wouldn’t attack it any other way.”Whether Fickell is correct or not, the fact that the question was asked suggests that some are speculating about “The Game’s” true significance.Fickell, along with Michigan coach Brady Hoke, has resorted to name calling in a vain attempt to emulate the way former OSU coach Woody Hayes would exchange barbs with the late, former Michigan coach, Bo Schembechler.Hoke has taken to referring to OSU as simply “Ohio,” and Fickell said Tuesday that his team wasn’t planning on using “hokey” trick plays against Michigan.“No pun intended,” a smiling Fickell said immediately following the remark, which elicited laughter from reporters.Hayes and Schembechler are dead — let’s not pretend that mimicking the “Ten-Year War” between Hayes and Schembechler’s “Ten Years” smack talk is going to bring this rivalry back to life.Methinks these quips aren’t necessary in order to restore the rivalry. The 2011 installment of the game should do the trick.The Buckeyes are 7 1/2-point underdogs heading into Saturday’s showdown at Michigan Stadium in Ann Arbor, Mich., according to a Tuesday listing on Vegas.com.It’s unfamiliar territory for Buckeye Nation to see its football team predicted by experts to lose to Michigan, but a possible result could be the revitalization of the lukewarm OSU-Michigan rivalry.Should Michigan win Saturday and reclaim bragging rights for the first time in eight years, that would surely get Buckeyes fans’ blood boiling in Columbus, Ohio.A Michigan win could also put a stamp on what has already been a successful regular season campaign in Ann Arbor. After all, Michigan can clinch a share of the Big Ten Legends Division title, should Michigan State lose to Northwestern.Michigan State will represent the division in the inaugural Big Ten Title game, though Michigan is also No. 15 in the Bowl Championship Series standings.A win by OSU, which would extend its winning streak against the Wolverines to seven games, would be considered an upset, a bitter disappointment to Michigan fans that would likely restoke the flames of this feud.A seventh consecutive victory against Michigan would improve OSU’s overall record against the Wolverines to 44-53-6.If there was ever a year when Buckeye Nation would appreciate beating Michigan, it would be 2011. After months of reading of the football program’s misdeeds and waiting to hear of the NCAA’s punishment, which still yet to be announced, OSU fans would savor every bit of an upset win in Ann Arbor.The two coaches can’t breath life back into “The Game” with hot air, but this weekend could and should.The stage is set, and either an OSU or a Michigan win figures to cure what ails the wayward rivalry.Game on, boys and girls. read more

Senate Seems Poised to Disapprove of Wall Emergency

first_img ADC AUTHOR Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) became the fourth senator to say he’ll back a House-passed resolution reversing President Trump’s declaration to use military construction funds to build a southern border wall.“I can’t vote to give the President the power to spend money that hasn’t been appropriated by Congress,” Paul said Sunday, according to the Bowling Green Daily News. “We may want more money for border security, but Congress didn’t authorize it. If we take away those checks and balances, it’s a dangerous thing.”Sens. Susan Collins (R-Maine), Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) and Thom Tillis (R-N.C.) have said they will support the resolution when it comes to the Senate floor. If four Republicans join all Democrats, the resolution would pass in the Senate, but Congress does not seem to have the votes to override a promised veto.DOD photo by U.S. Army Sgt. Amber I.

Lunar rock samples reveal variations in water concentrations

first_img Citation: Lunar rock samples reveal variations in water concentrations (2014, May 26) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2014-05-lunar-samples-reveal-variations.html (Phys.org) —A team of researchers studying rocks returned from the moon by Apollo 17 astronauts has found that rocks found in different locations have different amounts of water in them. In their paper published in the journal Nature Geoscience, the team describes their findings and offer possible explanations for the concentration differences.

Optical micrograph of pyroclastic glass beads in Apollo sample 74220, 383, the famous “orange soil”. Water was first detected by Saal et al., 2008 in glass beads similar to these. Credit: G.J. Taylor, HIGP More information: Heterogeneous distribution of water in the Moon, Nature Geoscience (2014) DOI: 10.1038/ngeo2173AbstractInitial analyses of lunar samples returned by the Apollo missions indicated that the Moon was essentially devoid of water. However, improved analytical techniques have revealed that pyroclastic glass beads in Apollo samples contain measurable amounts of water. Taking into account volatile loss during eruption of the glass beads onto the surface, the pre-eruption magma could have contained water on the order of 100 ppm by weight, concentrations that are similar to the mantle sources of mid-ocean ridge basalts on Earth. Lava flows from vast basaltic plains—the lunar maria—also contain appreciable amounts of water, as shown by analyses of apatite in mare basalt samples. In contrast, apatite in most non-mare rocks contains much less water than the mare basalts and glass beads. The hydrogen isotopic composition of lunar samples is relatively similar to that of the Earth’s interior, but the deuterium to hydrogen ratios obtained from lunar samples seem to have a larger range than found in Earth’s mantle. Thus, measurements of water concentration and hydrogen isotopic composition suggest that water is heterogeneously distributed in the Moon and varies in isotopic composition. The variability in the Moon’s water may reflect heterogeneity in accretion processes, redistribution during differentiation or later additions by volatile-rich impactors. Explore further © 2014 Phys.org Digging deep in search of water on the moon Journal information: Nature Geoscience It was just six years ago that scientists learned that there was water on the moon, prior to that, conventional wisdom suggested the moon was not only barren, but completely dry. That discovery led to more research which revealed that not only is there water on the moon, but it’s actually widespread—sealed inside of rocks, but present nonetheless. In this new effort, the research team reports that in studying the findings of several other teams analyzing the rocks since water was first found in them, they’ve discovered that some of the rocks have more water sealed inside of them than others—the difference appears to be related to where on the moon the rocks were found. This suggests, the team reports, that some parts of the moon are wetter than others. The new research team also found that the chemical composition of the water was different depending on the rock source as well.The findings have led the researchers to consider how differing water concentrations relate to theories regarding the origin of the moon. Most scientists believe the moon came to exist approximately four and half billion years ago when a collision occurred between Earth and another planet. The general consensus is that some of the moon came from Earth, some from the other planet and the rest from other bodies such as comets and asteroids that subsequently struck the moon. Water on the moon could therefore have come from the Earth, the other planet or comets. Intriguingly, the researchers have found that the chemical makeup of water samples in some of the rocks (volcanic glass) is similar to magma samples that once resided in Earth’s mantle. Others, on the other hand, were found to be much drier. The researchers conclude that the formation of the moon appears to have been a far more complex series of events than theories have suggested.

Watch Apples Three New Smartwatch Ads

first_img This story originally appeared on Business Insider Hear from business owners and CEOs who went through a crippling business problem and came out the other side bigger and stronger. April 27, 2015 After months of waiting, Apple’s debut smartwatch is finally here. The Cupertino company has eschewed its usual bombastic launches in favour of a pre-order system that has produced excellent sales, but also widespread confusion among customers about the availability of the device.Retail chief Angela Ahrendts acknowledged in a leaked video that staff have been “bombarded with questions” by customers as to when and where the device is actually on sale. The answer? Right now — but only online, with no official Apple Stores keeping the Watch in stock for the foreseeable future.To mark today’s launch, Apple has released three new adverts, highlighting the various ways the Apple Watch can be used by ordinary people. The ads, which we first saw on The Verge, are called “Rise,” “Up,” and “Us.”Rise looks at people starting their day aided by the Apple smartwatch — using it as an alarm, talking to one another, checking in to their flights, taking directions and phone calls, and of course, using it as a watch. It highlights little functionality that a customer wouldn’t get on their iPhone, but presents it in a more accessible fashion.”Up” puts the focus on its health features. We see people using timers for exercise, listening to music, and the device’s health-tracking and target-setting functionality.Also included is its “time to stand” feature that encourages the user to stand up after a period inactivity. Apple CEO Tim Cook has described sitting as the “new cancer,” and according to Wired, it is now common to see Apple employees randomly standing up in meetings because their Watch told them to.The last advert, “Us,” looks closely at the human aspect of the Apple Watch and how it can help people keep in touch. Apple unveiled the Apple Watch as its “most personal device ever,” and the ad explores this angle — showing off its ability to share doodles, 3D emojis and your heartbeat, as well as its uses for messaging, payments and unlocking hotel rooms. 2 min read Problem Solvers with Jason Feifer Listen Nowlast_img read more

Inventor of Email Ray Tomlinson Dies at 74

first_img This story originally appeared on Fortune Magazine Ray Tomlinson, the man credited with founding email, has passed away at the age of 74, according to a report from the Sydney Morning Herald. According to the report, Tomlinson died of a heart attack.Tomlinson was a part a team of computer programmers at research and design company Bolt Beranek and Newman (now BBN Technologies) in Cambridge, Mass., and had begun experimenting with internal messaging in 1971. Tomlinson had an idea to send a text message between computers using a new network (and a predeccesor to the Internet) called Arpanet, routing it using an “@” symbol.He recalled the first email sent in an interview with NPR from 2009: “The keyboards were about 10 feet apart … I could wheel my chair from one to the other and type a message on one, and then go to the other, and then see what I had tried to send.”By the 1980s government and military personnel were actively using the system. And by the 1990s email had become one of two pillars of the budding consumer Internet, alongside the World Wide Web.Tomlinson was subsequently inducted into the Internet Hall of Fame in 2012.Tomlinson told NPR that he had a feeling that what he had discovered with the “@” symbol would have some impact.“What I didn’t imagine was how quickly that would happen,” he said.

Magnesium may play important role in optimizing vitamin D levels study shows

Reviewed by Kate Anderton, B.Sc. (Editor)Dec 14 2018A randomized trial by Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center researchers indicates that magnesium optimizes vitamin D status, raising it in people with deficient levels and lowering it in people with high levels.The study reported in the December issue of The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition is important because of controversial findings from ongoing research into the association of vitamin D levels with colorectal cancer and other diseases, including a recent report from the VITAL trial. It gave confirmation to a prior observational study in 2013 by the researchers that linked low magnesium levels with low vitamin D levels.The trial also revealed something new — that magnesium had a regulating effect in people with high vitamin D levels. The research provides the first evidence that magnesium may play an important role in optimizing vitamin D levels and preventing conditions related to vitamin D levels.Qi Dai, MD, PhD, Ingram Professor of Cancer Research, the study’s lead author, described the ideal level as being in the middle range of a U-shape because vitamin D at this level has been linked to the lowest risk of cardiovascular disease in previous observational studies.However, vitamin D was not related to cardiovascular disease in the recent VITAL trial. He and Martha Shrubsole, PhD, research professor of Medicine, Division of Epidemiology, are investigating the role that magnesium may play with cancer as part of the Personalized Prevention of Colorectal Cancer Trial.”There’s a lot of information being debated about the relationship between vitamin D and colorectal cancer risk that is based upon observational studies versus clinical trials,” Shrubsole said. “The information is mixed thus far.”Related StoriesVitamin D supplement does not prevent type 2 diabetes in adults at high risk, study findsWinter prevents the Swiss population from producing daily doses of vitamin DLow vitamin D associated with potentially harmful vaginal bacteria in pregnant black womenThey became interested in a role for magnesium because people synthesize vitamin D differently with levels of the vitamin in some individuals not rising even after being given high dosage supplements.”Magnesium deficiency shuts down the vitamin D synthesis and metabolism pathway,” Dai said.The randomized study involved 250 people considered at risk for developing colorectal cancer because of either risk factors or having a precancerous polyp removed. Doses of magnesium and placebo were customized based on baseline dietary intake.”Vitamin D insufficiency is something that has been recognized as a potential health problem on a fairly large scale in the U.S.,” Shrubsole said. “A lot of people have received recommendations from their health care providers to take vitamin D supplements to increase their levels based upon their blood tests. In addition to vitamin D, however, magnesium deficiency is an under-recognized issue. Up to 80 percent of people do not consume enough magnesium in a day to meet the recommended dietary allowance (RDA) based on those national estimates.”Shrubsole stressed that the magnesium levels in the trial were in line with RDA guidelines, and she recommended dietary changes as the best method for increasing intake. Foods with high levels of magnesium include dark leafy greens, beans, whole grains, dark chocolate, fatty fish such as salmon, nuts, and avocados.

Google expansion plans helping to turn NYC into tech hub

Explore further “That would never happen in San Francisco,” she said. When she lived in the city by the Bay, “everyone I knew was in tech.”Argyros said there’s “a little bit of groupthink in Silicon Valley. There’s a lot of people who have similar jobs, they read similar things. But New York is really too big to be dominated by one industry.” As New York City waits to hear whether it’s been chosen as the site for Amazon’s second headquarters, recent moves by another tech giant, Google, to expand its footprint in the city are helping to legitimize New York’s claim to be Silicon Valley East. Google is reportedly close to a reaching a $2.4 billion deal to add a landmark Meatpacking District building to its already substantial New York campus.The building, a block-long former Nabisco factory named after its ground-floor upscale food mall, Chelsea Market, sits across the street from Google’s current New York City headquarters, a massive, art deco, former shipping terminal that also occupies an entire city block.Google already leases space in Chelsea Market, which also contains offices for Major League Baseball and the local cable news channel NY1, among other tenants.If the sale goes through, it would be among the priciest real estate transactions for a single building in city history. It would also give Google a remarkable Manhattan campus to supplement its still-growing main headquarters in Mountain View, California.Representatives for Google did not respond to requests for comment about the company’s New York expansion plans.Google already occupies another former Nabisco cookie factory just west of Chelsea Market. And, across the street from that factory, it has also announced plans to lease another 320,000 square feet of space at Pier 57, an office and retail complex built on a pier over the Hudson River.

The report found that the average salary for tech employees in the city was $147,300. Julie Samuels, executive director of TechNYC, a trade association of New York tech companies, said the presence of large companies like Google and Amazon has created “a robust ecosystem” where young engineers and others move to New York to work for the large companies and then leave after a few years to found startups.Tasso Argyros, the founder of three-year-old startup ActionIQ, agreed. “One of the best things that happened for New York was when Google opened up their office here,” he said.Argyros said people in Silicon Valley told him he was “a little bit crazy” when he moved to New York in 2013.
