Benito Jóanet belongs to the ‘very select’ group of coaches who got promotion to the First Division with Tenerife. Only four knew how to do it: Heriberto Herrera in 1961, Rafa Benítez in 2001, José Luis Oltra in 2009 and the Catalan did it in 1989 and therefore his death has caused deep regret in Tenerife. Miguel Concepción, president of the entity, dismissed him with a heartfelt letter.“Today we mourn one of the great personalities in the history of our club, a true example – in terms of principles and values - for past and future promotions of Tenerife”, highlighted the writing. “A big hug for your family and friends. At the heart of all the Blue and Whites will always be the coach who led the rise that transformed Tenerife.”For the entity’s top president, the sporting success of that campaign “was led, in his capacity as technical director, by Benito Joanet, whom today we bid farewell with heartfelt tears, for his chivalry, his knowledge, his pedagogy, his nobility, his skill and work, values that undoubtedly represent the club and its fans. “He was the coach who directed “one of the most beautiful works in the history of our club during the past century … The promotion of 1989, second in the collective biography of our entity to the First Division, it was one of the most celebrated successes in Tenerife’s almost 100 years of existence “, remarked the president. Total, There were 48 games that Benito Jóanet led the insular team, with a balance of 25 wins, ten draws and 13 defeats. It opened with a draw against Telde in Copa del Rey and his first league victory was in the derby against Las Palmas (3-1). He achieved promotion in the remembered Promotion against Real Betis, who thrashed 4-0 at Heliodoro and lost 1-0 in Seville.Players from that season also remembered him on the club’s official website. For example Quique Medina, who also had Jóanet in the coach course evoked: “He was a coach close to the player, although at the same time demanding as the most. You could be talking to him about your life and in 15 minutes he was giving you a hard time so you wouldn’t relax for even a moment. “Toño Hernández left “an important part of my history, the driving force and protagonist of the start of a great stage for our team. We live an unforgettable season, hand in hand with a great coach who was also a great person, “he said.David AmaralFor his part, he highlighted his work in those difficult years: “The club’s subsequent greatness had a before, and in that before Benito Joanet was a main protagonist. He had to live a difficult time, but with his great work he took the team to the First Division. It has a place of honor in the history of this institution for its professionalism, but above all for its behavior. “
Smaller was better at IDF, as is to be expected from a company that makes announcements measuring in nanometers. The new Curie platform, detailed at the show, will provide even smaller chips and software stacks for developers building wearable devices. The Curie includes a 32-bit low-power Intel Quark micro-controller, and 384KB of SRAM.Intel has had to pivot a bit to address the newly open markets for microcontrollers, wearable low-power devices, and the Internet of Things in general. As such, the company was pushing numerous developer platforms at the show, such as its Edison boards, the NUC computer, and the newly announced Curie.Elsewhere at Intel, however, existing and successful aspects of the company’s software efforts have had to pivot as well. James Reinders, director and evangelist at Intel, has been with the company for 27 years. He said that the prevalence of new platforms with new challenges prompted the teams at Intel to bring their popular compiler bare on the market in new ways. Intel launched the INDE cross-platform development package earlier this year, which allows applications to be compiled to multiple mobile platforms.“With things like Android, we’ve seen opportunities to add value,” said Reinders. “The Internet of Things seems to care enough about performance that what we’re doing matters. When you start getting devices that have to respond in real time, people get really sensitive about performance. I think phones and IoT devices are more sensitive to performance than applications on desktops. People are very worried about the performance of their phone applications.” It really doesn’t matter what else Intel talked about at its 15th Intel Developer Forum after it announced its Optane technology. The technology, known as 3D XPoint, is said by Intel to be 1,000x faster and more durable than existing NAND flash memory. Optane will be the brand name under which 3D XPoint will be branded, and Intel co-developed the technology with Micron.Not that you can buy it yet, but the technology promised in Intel’s keynote stole the show for most of the attendees. But there were plenty of other important technologies on display for developers at the event aside from the thunder-stealing next-generation storage announcement.(Related: Intel hopes RealSense inspires developers)Intel focused heavily on its RealSense depth-sensing camera technology. RealSense as a platform introduced new support for RealSense inside the Robot Operating System, Linux and MIT’s Scratch programming language for education. Intel also announced RealSense collaborations with Unity, Unreal Engine and Google’s Project Tango.
