Google rolled out its monthly Glass update today, adding four new features to the experimental hardware: sound search, photo vignettes, and some integration with both YouTube and Google Apps. Sound search is essentially a voice-controlled version of thesong-identifying Google Play widget found on Android. If you're wearing Glass and hear a song you like, just long press on the touchpad then swipe forward to launch sound search. You can also long press on the touchpad and then say, "OK Glass, what song is this?" to activate the feature.

 

Vignettes on Glass allows you to superimpose a small image of the app you're currently using on top of photos you take, giving viewers insight into what you were doing at theGLASS TAPS INTO GOOGLE APPS FOR THE FIRST TIMEtime the photo was taken. The update also adds YouTube videos to search results — and yes, if you want to, you can watch any of these YouTube clips on Glass' diminutive display.

University of Miami Baseball Assistant Coach Denies Involvement In Performance Enhancing Drug Company

University of Miami Baseball Assistant Coach Denies Involvement In Performance Enhancing Drug Company | world sports | Scoop.it

CORAL GABLES -- Glue still stains the stucco wall of the Coral Gables office plaza where Biogenesis once operated.

 

Just a few hundred yards across US-1, the University of Miami baseball team practiced on a sunny Tuesday afternoon.

 

The association between the now-closed anti-aging clinic linked to steroids and an assistant for the proud UM baseball program was called into question by a story published Tuesday by the Miami New Times. In it, several big Major League Baseball names including Miami resident Alex Rodriguez were listed on a client list for illegal performance enhancing drugs.

 

Jimmy Goins, UM baseball's assistant strength and conditioning coach since 2004, was also listed on client lists obtained by the newspaper as among those receiving banned substances. His profile was removed from the list of coaches on UM's official athletic website Tuesday afternoon.

When contacted by phone, Goins said he was still employed by the university but referred all questions to his attorney, Gordon Fenderson.

 

"He hasn't done anything wrong either personally or as a representative of the University of Miami," said Fenderson, an attorney specializing in DUI defense with offices in Jacksonville and Coral Gables. "And as far as being on a client list of a certain doctor, any connection of the University of Miami or their baseball program would be purely coincidental."

 

Major League Baseball investigators have been on the UM campus in recent weeks interviewing school officials, sources with knowledge of baseball's probe said. But Fenderson said his client has not been contacted by investigators from either MLB or the NCAA.

 

Two former UM star players were also listed as clients on the spreadsheet obtained by the Miami New Times of alleged Biogenesis PED clients. Pitcher Cesar Carrillo (2004-05) and Yasmani Grandal (2008-10) were named, but the report didn't state when they allegedly received PEDs from Biogenesis...
