SAinfo reporter Sesames Awards The Sesames Awards will form part of the annual Cartes trade show, which will be held in Paris from 6 to 8 November. A panel of 38 jury members, recognised as experts in their respective fields, will decide on the winners, who will be announced on the eve of the exhibition on 5 November. “The Sesames Awards are a unique opportunity for the candidates to showcase their creativity and their achievements to 20 000 professionals and 200 journalists attending from over 140 countries, all on the lookout for new products in this market,” the Cartes trade show says on its website. There are 10 categories in the awards: hardware, software, identification, IT security, transportation, banking, authentication, mobility, e-transactions, discovery and maufacturing and tests. 29 October 2012 South African mobile security company Entersekt has been selected as one of 36 international finalists for the 2012 Sesames awards, which reward the best technological innovations in smart cards, digital security, identification, secure transactions and contactless systems. Entersekt’s ‘interactive transaction authentication’ product was selected for the IT security category and was chosen from 475 entrants.Mobile banking authentication It is a solution for the banking sector and allows customers use their mobile devices, in an interactive secure session, to authenticate themselves to the bank’s electronic services. It enables each transaction to be digitally signed, without a one-time password. “The company’s solution allows institutions to uniquely identify each phone in the world – not by using a mobile number which they have no control over, but by trusting a mathematically unique X.509 digital certificate that is automatically installed on the mobile device by the Entersekt CA,” Entersekt’s Christiaan Brand said in a statement. “Banks can leverage off the trust that is provided by this unique identifier, and can use this technology to digitally sign individual financial transactions using the private key that’s kept confidentially on the phone.”

About the authorFreddie TaylorShare the loveHave your say Man Utd boss Solskjaer echoes Busby: ‘If they’re old enough, they’re good enough’by Freddie Taylor10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveOle Gunnar Solskjaer says he will follow in the tradition of legendary Manchester United manager Matt Busby by focusing on youth development during his time at the club.The Norwegian has won his first two games in charge since taking over Jose Mourinho.18-year-old Angel Gomes came off the bench in Wednesday’s win over Huddersfield, and with fellow youngsters Mason Greenwood, Tahith Chong and James Garner knocking on the door, Solskjaer has hinted there will be more opportunities given to the club’s youngsters.”As Sir Matt once said if they’re old enough they’re good enough, we’re built on that tradition, we need young players coming through, it’s important in the academy,” said Solskjaer in his pre-match press conference for Sunday’s clash with Bournemouth.”I am looking to bring players through, we have two or three top talents in the U18s that are knocking on the door now, we’ve had a couple of injuries and fatigue has been involved but then they’re ready to step up. Neil and Ricky they keep me filled in.”

Credit: Ethan Clewell | Senior Lantern ReporterFollowing a trip to the West Coast, the Ohio State men’s volleyball team will try and earn a win after losing three straight when the Buckeyes travel to Missouri to take on Lindenwood Friday, and Quincy on the road in Illinois Saturday. The Buckeyes (4-8, 0-2) are looking for their first win since their four-set victory against Lincoln Memorial at home on Feb. 2. They’ve lost nine straight sets since then to then-unranked Purdue Fort Wayne, No. 6 UC Santa Barbara and No. 1 Long Beach State. Ohio State is also going for its first league win after losses to the Mastodons and then-No. 13 Ball State earlier this season.Head coach Pete Hanson said he’s trying to get his young team to find ways to keep momentum when the match is on the line. “We’re still just making some young errors at really critical times that can keep momentum going,” Hanson said. “A lot of times, that’s what this game is all about: Can you keep a scoring run going or can you stop a scoring run by the other team? We’re just struggling to kind of find ways to get those two things accomplished and a lot of that is youth right now.” Both the Lions and the Hawks share identical records with the Buckeyes. Lindenwood (4-8, 0-2) comes into the match on Friday fresh off losses to No. 10 Lewis and then-No. 8 Loyola Chicago. The Lions are led by redshirt sophomore Charley Hlavin, who has accounted for 103 kills, 52 digs and six aces this season. The Lions and the Buckeyes have had two common opponents this season: Penn State and Saint Francis. Both teams are 1-1, with the Buckeyes having beaten Penn State at home, while the Lions have a five-set road win against the the Red Flash. Quincy (4-8, 0-2) will face the Buckeyes Saturday after having played against league foe McKendree two nights before. The Hawks are currently on their own three-match losing streak, featuring straight-set defeats against then-No. 8 Loyola Chicago and No. 10 Lewis and a four-set loss to Lourdes. The Hawks are led by junior outside hitter Omari Wheeler, who has amassed 160 kills, 60 digs and eight aces this season. Both the Buckeyes and the Hawks fell in straight-sets to their only common opponent: No. 1 Long Beach State. Ohio State will have to lean on the youth on its roster to come up big this weekend. Injuries to major contributors such as senior setter Sanil Thomas and sophomore opposite hitter Jake Hanes have given some younger players more opportunities. Freshman outside hitter Jack Stevens, a serving specialist for the Buckeyes, said he’s been learning a lot from the upperclassmen about how to adjust to playing at the collegiate level. “All the older guys have taught me a lot about just the hard work and dedication it takes to succeed at this level, whether it’s in the practice gym, the weight room, or in the classroom,” Stevens said. “All these guys have been working hard for four or five years. It’s really cool to learn from them.” Ohio State will face Lindenwood at 8 p.m. Friday in Saint Charles, Missouri, and Quincy at 8 p.m. Saturday in Quincy, Illinois.
Fulham Football Club player Andre Schurrle has revealed that scoring his first goal for the club is an amazing moment.The former Chelsea winger was on target for the Cottagers this weekend, scoring the club’s fourth goal during their impressive victory over Burnley on Sunday afternoon.Schurrle is currently on a two-year loan deal from Borussia Dortmund and the Germany international is keen to rekindle his career after a very difficult 24-month spell in the Bundesliga.A beaming Schürrle shared his delight with FulhamFCTV, as quoted by HammyEnd, after the final whistle: “It was a great atmosphere and it was a really good feeling on the pitch. I really enjoyed every minute because you could feel like everyone was coming, everyone was going – the crowd wanted us to be together, fight and score the goals and that’s what we did.”“Today was amazing and for our new players it was so important, you can’t even believe.”Official: Tottenham sign Fulham youngster Ryan Sessegnon Andrew Smyth – August 8, 2019 Tottenham have sealed another transfer deadline day deal to sign the highly-rated Ryan Sessegnon from Fulham.“We could have scored more, especially me. I think I had 45 shots today! Normally in a Premier League you don’t have so many shots and so many big chances, so that’s what we have to get together.”“Maybe we have to score a few more goals, but we’re happy with four today and the win.”The winger was delighted to get off the mark for the Whites, especially after seeing a number of his earlier efforts well saved by Joe Hart.“When I scored the goal, it was very important for me. It was one of the greatest moments in my career and to be on this pitch and in front of these fans, because they were all chanting [my name] before, I wanted to give them something back and when the ball went in and I could feel this joy, it was an amazing moment.”
