Green Bay Packers star Aaron Rodgers took a swipe Thursday at the business-destroying coronavirus rules slammed onto California’s small businesses by Gov. Gavin Newsom. In an interview with watch manufacturer Zenith Watches, Rodgers talked about his high-profile relationship with actress Shailene Woodley and other goings-on in his life, but the conversation soon swung to his efforts to help out small businesses in his native state of California. Rodgers noted that he has “Been doing some work actually in my hometown in Northern California as well to try and help some people through a small business fund that we started.” The Packers star added that he just hopes to do his part to help his neighbors. “You know, we’re just trying to do our part and as we ease back into the training stuff in my professional life, I just want to make sure where I’m from and the area I’ve called home in the past are doing OK,” Rodgers continued. “And California has really been hit hard by COVID … [Read more...] about Packers’ Aaron Rodgers Rips CA Gov.

Kindly Share This Story: Only incumbent Ahmad Ahmad potentially stands in the way of South African billionaire and current sole candidate Patrice Motsepe becoming the eighth president of the Confederation of African Football (CAF) this Friday. A verdict is expected Monday by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) on an appeal by Malagasy Ahmad against a five-year ban imposed by FIFA last November over “governance issues”. The world football governing body said the 61-year-old had “breached his duty of loyalty, offered gifts and other benefits, mismanaged funds and abused his position as the CAF president”. Ahmad appealed to CAS within two days of the ban being announced and was allowed to return to his CAF post in January, pending the outcome. A CAF executive committee member, speaking to AFP on condition of anonymity in order to be candid, said he believed the best Ahmad could hope for was “a lesser suspension”. “Some of the evidence against him … [Read more...] about Ahmad only possible obstacle to Motsepe becoming CAF president

Is this what the new iOS 5 notification system will look like? That’s the question on everyones mind now that there has been confirmation that the developer of MobileNotifier is working for Apple. For those who don’t know, MobileNotifier is a popular jailbreak tool that completely redesigns iOS’s notification system for the better. Notifications pop across the top of the screen but do not interfere with app functionality. If you’re on a lock screen, they gather in relevant groups and are easy to quickly identify. Shown are a few screenshots and two videos of MobileNotifier. Notifications delivered and managed through the MobileNotifier app are easier to view, see, manage, and just all around improved, and apparently Apple was impressed enough too to hire developer Peter Hajas directly. This is perhaps the strong indicator yet of what the iOS 5 notification system will be. The confirmation was uncovered by RedmondPie with this now deleted tweet, where after … [Read more...] about Is This the New iOS 5 Notification System?
