Marum hopes key players will take field

first_imgWith Brandy Peter replacing forward Timothy Lomai due to a knee injury, halfback Watson Boas forcing his way back into the team and Tuvi Lepan back on the bench, Marum believes some of the key players will hold on and pass their physios to play this weekend.“We don’t want to risk our players but we hope that they fully recover before taking the field,” Marum said.“We also have other support players with the two new players recently recruited but they are yet to reach the required level to take the field.”With only 5 games remaining before the finals, it is an opportunity to meet the premiers again, the team that have beaten them twice already in their away meets, says Marum.“Jets are a tough team to beat but we hope to swing the ball around and convert opportunities to steal the win.”Meanwhile, co-captain Noel Zeming is still given weeks off to recover as Hunters’ regular fullback, Stargroth Amean, returns into training camp after being given some time off.The final 17 men will be announced this afternoon after omitting 3 players.last_img read more

PowerShell vs PowerShell Core what you need to know

first_imgPowerShell vs. PowerShell Core, what you need to know by Martin Brinkmann on January 12, 2018 in Windows – Last Update: January 12, 2018 – 16 commentsMicrosoft announced the general availability of PowerShell Core 6.0 on January 10, 2018.PowerShell Core is a new version of PowerShell, a command-line shell and scripting language that ships with Microsoft Windows.The release of PowerShell Core increases the number of PowerShell editions to two. There is the decade-old PowerShell that is integrated into all recent versions of Microsoft’s Windows operating system and the new PowerShell Core.Microsoft sees PowerShell Core as an evolution of PowerShell. The former is available as a cross-platform application, the latter only for Windows.The cross-platform nature of PowerShell Core means that scripts that you write will run on any supported operating system. You can write PowerShell Core scripts on Windows, and use them on supported Mac OS X or Linux devices. There are even experimental (unsupported) versions for ARM devices.Microsoft works actively on PowerShell Core. PowerShell, on the other hand, is in a state that can best be compared to extended support for Windows versions. Microsoft has no plans to add features to PowerShell, but it will release critical bug fixes and security updates.However, there are currently no plans to introduce new functionality to Windows PowerShell. This means that the risk of regression will be very low for Windows PowerShell, so you can count on it as a stable platform for your existing workloads.PowerShell Core installs side by side on Windows. In short: PowerShell Core does not affect Windows PowerShell in any way on Windows devices.PowerShell Core 6.0 is not as powerful as PowerShell 5.1. One core reason for that is that PowerShell has access to the .NET Framework and .NET Standard while PowerShell Core to the less-feature-rich .NET Core and .NET Standard.Some technologies available to Windows PowerShell are not supported by .NET Core. Microsoft notes that some of the technologies may return in future releases but that this won’t be the case for all of them.The company mentions PowerShell Workflows, PowerShell Snap-ins, WMlv1 cmdlets and executing Desired State Configuration resources specifically.
