Elmohamady’s strike downs Wolves to send Villa into Carabao Cup quarters

first_img 3 stalemate Strikes from Anwar El Ghazi and Ahmed Elmohamady downed Wolves to send Aston Villa into the quarter-finals of the Carabao Cup.Elmohamady grabbed a second-half winner to clinch a 2-1 victory as the hosts reached the last eight for the first time since 2012. LATEST targets Tony Cascarino backs Everton to sign two strikers for Carlo Ancelotti Outmuscled on the pitch and with no established outfield player on the bench, any hopes Wolves had of their first quarter-final in 23 years appeared slim.Yet they levelled out of the blue nine minutes into the second half.Perry was encouraged to cut into the area and Cutrone pounced to divert the ball past Jed Steer from five yards for just his second goal in 17 games.Parity was short-lived, though, as Villa won the tie less than three minutes later.

Getty Images – Getty They allowed five-time winners Villa, who made nine changes, to make the early running and Max Kilman made a vital block to thwart Trezeguet after he darted into the box.Villa tried to overpower their visitors, their experience outweighing Wolves’ exuberance.Forward Campbell, at 16 years and 304 days, became Wolves’ second youngest player ever and he dragged wide from the edge of the box but it was a rare foray for the visitors.Villa remained on top and it was no surprise when they took the lead after 28 minutes.It was well crafted from the hosts, who pulled Wolves across the box before Henri Lansbury slipped in El Ghazi and his low effort squirmed under John Ruddy’s outstretched hand.

Custom CSS with Jetpack: Images

first_imgThe Custom CSS module in Jetpack offers an easy way to edit the styles in your WordPress theme. Sure, you can edit your stylesheet and upload it to your site. But I know a lot of people have turned to using the Custom CSS module for updating their stylesheets simply because it’s so quick. Once you’re installed Jetpack, go to Appearance > Edit CSS on your dashboard and you can start adding/modifying CSS.Whenever anyone from our Metro Detroit WordPress Meetup group asks questions about how to use Jetpack’s Custom CSS, I point them to my friend Marcy’s post Custom CSS with Jetpack for WordPress Website Design. Marcy walks you through adding custom fonts, link colors, and adding CSS for post and blog titles using Jetpack’s Custom CSS module. She includes sample code snippets for each CSS change. Last week one of our meetup members contacted me about images in the Custom CSS module. He read Marcy’s post, but was running into some issues when he added a background image. The image wasn’t displaying. He’s been working with CSS for a while, but this was the first time he had used the Custom CSS module to change his stylesheet.Any tips you can share? he asked.How Jetpack Adds CSS ChangesJetpack’s Custom CSS inserts CSS changes differently than your theme stylesheet. Jetpack’s CSS editor adds the CSS changes relative to the root of your site. Your theme stylesheet adds CSS changes based on relative file names within the theme folder.In your stylesheet, you would typically add: url(images/my-image.jpg).However, when you’re adding images in Jetpack’s Custom CSS, you have two options: Add an absolute URL (e.g. http://www.yoursite.com/wp-content/themes/yourtheme/images/my-image.jpg)Add the relative URL from your domain root (e.g. wp-content/themes/yourtheme/images/my-image.jpg)My recommendation was to use the relative URL.

FTC Finds Paid Reviews Defy “Truth In Advertising”

first_img8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Related Posts mike melanson Tags:#advertising#news#web Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic…center_img Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… In a win for consumers, the Federal Trade Commission settled today with a video game company that hired a public relations firm to post reviews of its app in the iTunes App Store. The FTC found that the reviews, which did not disclose the relationship of the reviewer with the company or product, constituted a form of false advertising by hiding facts that “would have been relevant to consumers who were evaluating the endorsement and deciding whether to buy the gaming applications”.According to Mary Engle, the director of the FTC’s Division of Advertising Practices, the reviews defied “long-held principles of truth in advertising”.“Advertisers should not pass themselves off as ordinary consumers touting a product, and endorsers should make it clear when they have financial connections to sellers,” said Engle in the commission’s release.The settlement requires that the two companies remove any reviews that fail to disclose the existing business relationship and bars them “from misrepresenting that the user or endorser is an independent, ordinary consumer, and from making endorsement or user claims about a product or service unless they disclose any relevant connections that they have with the seller of the product or service.” The FTC made a similar requirement of bloggers last year, when it issued new guidelines requiring bloggers disclose their relationships with companies, lest they be fined up to $11,000 per blog post. Those same guidelines, the FTC said in today’s settlement, require that “the online post by a person connected to the seller, or someone who receives cash or in-kind payment to review a product or service, should disclose the material connection the reviewer shares with the seller of the product or service.”The decision is not only a win for consumer, but for online review sites like Yelp or Amazon, which rely on users’ trust in reviews to keep operating. If review services become overrun with paid endorsements, they become little more than bulletin boards for advertising, not actual user reviews.last_img read more

The centre-back had been due to start this evening in Belfast. Instead, he is not even on the bench for this game, as he is not fully fit. According to Fox Sports and Mediaset Premium, it is not a serious injury and De Vrij agreed with coach Ronald Koeman to sit this one out. He felt a twinge during yesterday’s training session and preferred not to risk further damage, awaiting more tests.last_img
