“We’re pretty hopeful we can go deep into the finals so, but given how tight all the spots are on the top 10 eight, it’s pretty crucial in this part of the season to be getting two points, separating ourselves from a bit of a cluster where anyone can finish as high as second.”

Sitting second on the ladder at 12-5, the Cowboys could potentially burn off the chasing foe in the race for a home qualifying final across the next three games as they face the Tigers (16th), St George Illawarra (11th) and Canterbury (14th).

‘Everyone is taking the p**s at the moment and I don’t know why because all the queues have disappeared from the chippy,’ the wrote. ‘Pubs and restaurants are pretty empty, everyone has cut back because of high prices, so they lose out even more in the end!’

Not everyone was shocked by the price however, with one person, seemingly referring to the cost of living crisis, writing: ‘Cheese, where I live, in Asda is about £2.50/2.70. The price has gone up quite a bit.’

To ease the problems with computer clocks that don’t like 61-second minutes, Google pioneered the idea of the “leap smear” that makes the leap second’s changes in many tiny steps over the course of a day.

The 26-year-old Moroccan international defender joined for £28million, but had ankle surgery after sustaining an injury in their pre-season friendly against Rangers last week, providing a huge blow to the Hammers.

Google, Microsoft, Meta and Amazon launched a public effort Monday to scrap the leap second, an occasional extra tick that keeps clocks in sync with the Earth’s actual rotation. US and French timekeeping authorities concur.

“We are predicting that if we just stick to the TAI without leap second observation, we should be good for at least 2,000 years,” research scientist Ahmad Byagowi of Facebook parent company Meta said via email. “Perhaps at that point we might need to consider a correction.*

Adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) rose to 11.6 billion crowns ($1.16 billion) in April-June from 6.6 billion crowns a year earlier, while analysts in a company-provided poll had expected 11.6 billion crowns on average.

OSLO, July 22 (Reuters) – Norwegian aluminium-maker Norsk Hydro said on Friday it would propose an extra dividend and offer share buybacks as it reported upbeat quarterly profits in line with expectations.

Among the quartet of champion Maroons is Tom Dearden, who in steering his state to a famous game three win looked more like a veteran leader than a 21-year-old emerging halfback who’s yet to even appear in the NRL post-season.

The tech giants and two key agencies agree that it’s time to ditch the leap second. Those are the US National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and its French equivalent, the Bureau International de Poids et Mesures (BIPM).

The temporal tweak causes more problems — like internet outages — than benefits, they say. And dealing with leap seconds ultimately is futile, the group argues, since the Earth’s rotational speed hasn’t actually changed much historically.

The leap second change triggered a massive Reddit outage in 2012, as well as related problems at Mozilla, LinkedIn, Yelp and airline booking service Amadeus. In 2017, a leap second glitch at Cloudflare knocked a fraction of the network infrastructure company’s customers’ servers offline. Cloudflare’s software, comparing two clocks, calculated that time had gone backward but couldn’t properly handle that result.

Since 1972, the world’s timekeeping authorities have added a leap second 27 times to the global clock known as the International Atomic Time (TAI). Instead of 23:59:59 changing to 0:0:0 at midnight, an extra 23:59:60 is tucked in. That causes a lot of indigestion for computers, which rely on a network of precise timekeeping servers to schedule events and to record the exact sequence of activities like adding data to a database.

Computers are really good at counting. But humans introduce irregularities like leap seconds that can throw a wrench in the works. One of the most infamous was the Y2K bug, when human-authored databases recorded only the last two digits of the year and messed up math when 1999 became 2000. A related problem is coming in 2038 when a 32-bit number that some computers use to count the seconds from Jan. 1, 1970, is no longer large enough.
