Brazilian Footballer Taison's Transfer to Shakhtar Becomes Part of the $ 300 Million Sale of FC Metalist by Aleksander Yaroslavskiy

KHARKIV, Ukraine, January 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

The transfer of a leading player for FC Metalist, Brazilian footballer Taison to Donetsk Shakhtar, became part of Aleksander Yaroslavskiy's sale of the Kharkiv club to Gas Ukraine.

In an interview to UNIAN, the president of DCH A. Yaroslavskiy, commented on the official report of Taison's transfer to Rinat Akhmetov's club, as well as the issue of the price of FC Metalist.

"I guess Taison wanted to leave. The player had the contract payoff amount - $ 20 million, so Taison apparently used this, and the transfer took place. I believe that any transfer is normal. That is, how and for whom this is normal - we'll see. Is it normal for Metalist? We'll see the results of how well Metalist's success develops, this is the first. Second, the success of Shakhtar; will Taison bring Shakhtar the thing Shakhtar counts on, we shall see too. Thirdly, the financial question; money for Taison are part of the cost of the club," said A. Yaroslavskiy.

In this case, A. Yaroslavskiy neither confirmed nor denied media reports that FC Metalist's cost for Gas Ukraine was $ 300 million, and as for how much he sold his club, the former owner said "I can not say. The contract was signed under which the information is confidential."

Speaking of Taison's class, and on the question whether he considers the transfer of the player, who was bought in 2010 from Internacional for 6.3 million euros, as a loss for Metalist, A. Yaroslavskiy answered: "In Metalist Taison showed excellent results, he was a leader, scored a fantastic goal against Bayer, got famous forever, announced himself to Europe. Now we will see him in Shakhtar. We hope that he will gain there too."

According A. Yaroslavskiy, he cares about the fate of Metalist, just like all of Ukrainian football, and he confirmed that in the future a new "football project" is possible.

If time allows, the businessman said he would like to watch the game of Metalist in the Europa League match against Newcastle to be held in England in February.

As UNIAN reported on January 11, the official website of FC Shakhtar reported that the Donetsk club acquired FC Metalist's (the owner - company Gas Ukraine) Taison, under a 5 year contract for a transfer sum of $ 20 million.

On December 24, 2012, Kharkiv businessman, investor and general coordinator of Kharkiv's preparations for Euro 2012, Aleksander Yaroslavskiy, said that he abdicated as president of FC Metalist and passed the funding obligations of the club to another investor.

A. Yaroslavskiy noted that the main reason for the sale of the club was due to "obscure claims from city authorities to me as an investor and as a result, an unprecedented psychological pressure on the team and the staff."

Prior to that, in mid-December the Kharkiv city council deputies adopted an appeal to the President of the Regional Council Sergiy Chernov, to give RSC Metalist to the municipal ownership of the city of Kharkiv. In 2007, for the period of reconstruction and preparation for Euro-2012, RSC Metalist was transferred to the management of Kharkiv Regional Council by the city.

After the decision, A. Yaroslavskiy warned that he could stop funding the club due to the allegations of the mayor of Kharkiv Gennadiy Kernes that Metalist stadium should be returned to the communal ownership of Kharkiv. Meanwhile, the next day, the head of the Kharkiv Regional State Administration Mikhail Dobkin, commented on the situation, whereby he said that he did not exclude the possibility of selling the stadium Metalist to a private person.

Immediately after A. Yaroslavskiy's announcement of resignation as Metalist president, the agreement with the group Gas Ukraine on the acquisition of FC Metalist from A. Yaroslavskiy, was reported. Company owner S. Kurchenko soon expressed the desire to purchase RSC Metalist.

After FC Metalist received its new owner, a number of Kharkiv media outlets reported that the candidate for the post of president of FC Metalist is one of the sons of President Viktor Yanukovych, Aleksander, but at a press conference M. Dobkin refuted this information.

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, and physical persons. In the IoT vision, every new "thing" - sensor, actuator, data source, data con...
How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it's a mix of architectural styles ...

One of the biggest challenges when developing connected devices is identifying user value and delivering it through successful user experiences. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Mike Kuniavsky, Principal Scientist, Innovation Services at PARC, described an IoT-specific approach to user experience design that combines approaches from interaction design, industrial design and service design to create experiences that go beyond simple connected gadgets to create lasting, multi-device experiences grounded in people's real needs and desires.
Enthusiasm for the Internet of Things has reached an all-time high. In 2013 alone, venture capitalists spent more than $1 billion dollars investing in the IoT space. With "smart" appliances and devices, IoT covers wearable smart devices, cloud services to hardware companies. Nest, a Google company, detects temperatures inside homes and automatically adjusts it by tracking its user's habit. These technologies are quickly developing and with it come challenges such as bridging infrastructure gaps, abiding by privacy concerns and making the concept a reality. These challenges can't be addressed w...
The Domain Name Service (DNS) is one of the most important components in networking infrastructure, enabling users and services to access applications by translating URLs (names) into IP addresses (numbers). Because every icon and URL and all embedded content on a website requires a DNS lookup loading complex sites necessitates hundreds of DNS queries. In addition, as more internet-enabled ‘Things' get connected, people will rely on DNS to name and find their fridges, toasters and toilets. According to a recent IDG Research Services Survey this rate of traffic will only grow. What's driving t...
Connected devices and the Internet of Things are getting significant momentum in 2014. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Hunter, Chief Scientist & Technology Evangelist at Greenwave Systems, examined three key elements that together will drive mass adoption of the IoT before the end of 2015. The first element is the recent advent of robust open source protocols (like AllJoyn and WebRTC) that facilitate M2M communication. The second is broad availability of flexible, cost-effective storage designed to handle the massive surge in back-end data in a world where timely analytics is e...
Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.
We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) i...

Explosive growth in connected devices. Enormous amounts of data for collection and analysis. Critical use of data for split-second decision making and actionable information. All three are factors in making the Internet of Things a reality. Yet, any one factor would have an IT organization pondering its infrastructure strategy. How should your organization enhance its IT framework to enable an Internet of Things implementation? In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, James Kirkland, Chief Architect for the Internet of Things and Intelligent Systems at Red Hat, described how to revolutioniz...
Bit6 today issued a challenge to the technology community implementing Web Real Time Communication (WebRTC). To leap beyond WebRTC’s significant limitations and fully leverage its underlying value to accelerate innovation, application developers need to consider the entire communications ecosystem.
The definition of IoT is not new, in fact it’s been around for over a decade. What has changed is the public's awareness that the technology we use on a daily basis has caught up on the vision of an always on, always connected world. If you look into the details of what comprises the IoT, you’ll see that it includes everything from cloud computing, Big Data analytics, “Things,” Web communication, applications, network, storage, etc. It is essentially including everything connected online from hardware to software, or as we like to say, it’s an Internet of many different things. The difference ...
