Sherwood wants the best of Benteke

first_imgAston Villa boss Tim Sherwood challenged Christian Benteke to fire himself back to form and throw the matchball in his doubters’ faces. The misfiring striker has scored just three times this season with Villa second bottom of the Barclays Premier League ahead of Saturday’s trip to Newcastle. Villa are the lowest scoring team in the top flight having hit just 13 goals in 26 games this season. Press Associationcenter_img Benteke has contributed just two of those and Sherwood threw down the gauntlet to the Belgium hitman ahead of their trip to the north-east. “I want to see him take the matchball with a hat-trick and throw it back in people’s faces,” he said. “Teams should be scared of him. They’ve got memories like me. I remember him terrorising defenders. We need to get him back to that. He’s only young. “We don’t want to try to patronise him, we want to try to tell him some home truths, ‘you were one of the best strikers in the country and everybody wanted you, Aston Villa didn’t want to sell you and now we need to get you back to that.’ It’s in there. It’s not a flash in the pan, it’s embedded into him. “He scores one in two. He’s a prolific goalscorer and we need to help him. The rest of the group need to help him – but we need to find goals from other areas as well.” Villa lost Sherwood’s first game 2-1 at home to Stoke last weekend, their sixth successive defeat, leaving them in the bottom three on goal difference. Sherwood insisted, though, he needs time to improve Villa after their season of struggle under ex-boss Paul Lambert. He said: “I dwell on it because I’m always mulling over the game, could we have done anything differently? “I beat myself up about it. If I put it into perspective, after a couple of days in training, I haven’t come in here with a magic wand. “No one expected that. It’s going to be difficult, it’s going to be a work in progress and the more time I have on the training field with the guys the more confidence I have we can turn this position around.” last_img read more

Gov. DeSantis signs college athletes compensation bill

first_imgStarting next year, college athletes in the state of Florida will be eligible for compensation in situations where their name, image, or likeness is being used.The announcement was made Friday afternoon by Governor Ron DeSantis at the University of Miami.The governor said that he “viewed it as something that was a matter of fairness,”  when it came to allowing the athletes to be paid.“We’re not talking about, you get a scholarship to Florida State and Miami and the universities are gonna pay you to play. That’s not what we’re talking about,” DeSantis said. “But if you have a situation where you have some of the great athletes, particularly in sports like football and basketball, whose name, image, and likeness is being used to make millions and millions of dollars, and they don’t have the opportunity to get any of that, there’s something fundamentally unfair for that,” DeSantis said.“If EA Sports wants to do NCAA Football and they’re gonna have some of these guys who are great players, they’re gonna use their name, image, and likeness, then there can be some compensation for that,” DeSantis continued.The Florida Board of Governors are still hammering out the finer details of the bill but it is expected to go into affect by July 1st of 2021.last_img read more

Hope floats: Future bright for PH ‘3’ as Tokyo beckons

first_imgJury of 7 men, 5 women selected for Weinstein rape trial “There is promise; there is hope,” coach Ronnie Magsanoc told the Inquirer. “There is actual proof that these four players can compete together and make each other better and stay with the best teams in the world.”The squad of Stanley Pringle, Christian Standhardinger, Roger Pogoy and Troy Rosario bested sixth-ranked Brazil (15-7) and third seed Russia (19-14) in pool play, where it also bowed to more experienced Canada and Mongolia.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkSPORTSTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crown“Imagine what can happen if we have a program in place,” said Magsanoc. “Our first real scrimmage was the game against Brazil. The first learning curve was against Mongolia. And again another lesson against Canada, before we managed to regroup and beat Russia.”Magsanoc said the building blocks have already been established for a push for that Tokyo Olympics spot. Volcano watch: Island fissures steaming, lake water receding The Philippines’ last taste of basketball action in the Olympics came in 1972 in Munich, Germany, where the men’s team finished 13th out of 16 teams.“That is the challenge that really gave us the excitement to be a part of this team because the Gilas program is really geared towards landing a spot in the Olympics and this might be another avenue where we can make the Olympics,” said Magsanoc.Rosario pushed for the creation of a pool for the 3×3 event much like the Gilas program: “There’s a pool for Gilas for Fiba 5-on-5 and I think we might need the same with 3×3.”Standhardinger would love nothing more than to keep the squad.“Of course we’ll try to do our all but I hope that all of the organizations involved will give us the opportunity to stick together and I think we showed great promise,” he said. “You saw what this guy (Pogoy] did with the two-pointers. Amazing. He’s made for this physicality, he’s made for 3×3, Troy is made for 3×3 and nobody can stop Stanley.

Catholic Church’s Anti-Ebola Volunteer Ends Mission

first_imgAn anti-Ebola volunteer of the Catholic Church, Dr. Tim Flanigan has expressed strong optimism that Liberia will soon overcome Ebola.Professor Flannigan, a specialist on Infectious Disease at the prestigious Brown University in Rhode Island, USA, who has worked in Liberia as a volunteer with the Catholic Church’s Ebola Response Team, made the assertion recently in Monrovia.He stated that he was personally touched by the commitment of the people of Liberia and their local and international partners in combating the Ebola virus disease (EVD), adding that the virus will soon be history.“Liberia went through the war, which was worst than Ebola. So I think you will defeat this disease. Liberians are poor and have few health workers but the country is very rich in faith, prayer, and desire to succeed against the outbreak,” he observed.Dr. Flanigan, who is also an ordained Deacon in the Church, arrived in Monrovia early September at the invitation of the Catholic Church. Since his arrival, he has been an asset in the fight against the disease, said Sr. Barbara Brillant FMM, Coordinator of the Catholic Church’s Ebola Response Program.“We are very happy to have Dr. Tim with us. He has been leading and conducting training and education sessions at Catholic health facilities, communities, parishes, schools, and other places like Buchanan. He has been an asset.”Dr. Tim played critical liaison role with the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare, CDC, visited Ebola Treatment Units (ETU) and related well with other organizations on behalf of the Catholic Church.During his tenure of volunteerism, the Catholic Ebola Response Team was involved in three main activities. The first was to split the awareness and sensitization intervention into three teams: Team One was for Health Centers and Clinics (including the Catholic Hospital and the TB and Leprosy Center in Ganta) and Team Two focused on Community Outreach (worked with youth groups to do Ebola prevention in communities and parishes) while Team Three coordinated and worked with school principals and teachers to prepare for school opening.The second activity focused on undertaking an assessment of Catholic Clinics in the Monrovia area as a prerequisite for reopening of the facilities: Star of the Sea Clinic, Bishop John Collins Clinic, Sr. Barbara Ann Health Center, Sr. Agnes Clinic as well as the St. Peter’s Claver in Buchanan, Grand Bassa County.The third activity entailed the provision of donated materials and PPE (personnel protective equipment) and Clorox and helping the St. Joseph’s Catholic Hospital in organizing training for its reopening.Asked about his personal experiences in the fight against Ebola, Dr. Flanigan said: “With Ebola, sometimes patients and health workers feel abandoned because we try not to touch them. The health care workers did not have enough PPE, but are committed to helping the patients and be as safe as possible. We need to always stand by them”Dr. Flanigan, who departs Liberia early November for USA, said he was pleased to have volunteered with the Church and will always have fond memories of the people and country. He lauded the Catholic Church for inviting him and thanked Liberians for receiving and working with him well. He will be happy to come back if the opportunity affords him. He hoped that the new Doctor, a Franciscan Missionary of Mary Catholic Nun from Kenya, who has come to join the anti-Ebola crusade will receive similar support.The Catholic Church in Liberia in early September scaled up its fight against the Ebola Disease Virus (EVD) with the mobilization of increased human, medical and logistical resources to put a halt to the virus, protect the people, and ensure the smooth operations of Catholic health centers around the country. Dr. Tim Flanigan has been a formidable member of that effort.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Thanks to this film I have added Vilnius to the list of places I want to visit.This film checked off all the criteria: Production quality was great – it was a beautiful film and the quality was great. Content – it was informative and inspiring. Creativity – it showed all the places caches could be, and showed some very unusual hides. Global contribution – I felt like this is a film I could show someone who knows nothing about caching, and give them a good picture of what it is, as well as inspiring them with some fun hides. I want to cache in Vilnius!I liked that this video showed someone finding a variety of interesting (quality) caches, rather than going for numbers or after a FTF.See for yourself and watch the GIFF 2017 finalist films here.

Half of World’s Smartphones Will Run Android by 2012, Says Gartner

first_imgRelated Posts In Android market share news, analysts at Gartner are now forecasting the Google-created mobile operating system will reach 49% smartphone market share by the end of 2012, based on handset sales. By the end of this year (2011), Android will be the most popular operating system in the world, as worldwide smartphone sales reach 468 million units.Meanwhile, iOS will remain the second largest platform through 2014, says Gartner, despite seeing slight market share decreases this year. RIM will decline, and Nokia will push Windows Phone up to the mid-tier by the end of 2012, it predicts. By 2013, Windows Phone will be the third-largest platform. sarah perez Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement Tags:#Android#mobile#news#Trends Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfacescenter_img While it should be noted that Dediu is a decidedly pro-Apple analyst, he often makes more sense than some of the larger analyst firms. That said, predicting smartphone market share in an industry like this is usually a shot in the dark. Things change fast around here – long-term forecasts of any kind probably shouldn’t be banked on. This isn’t the first analyst firm to forecast that the Nokia/Microsoft partnership will have a major impact on smartphone market share. In March, IDC also said that Windows Phone would be boosted, arriving in the number two position by 2015.Doubting the AnalystsOf course, these forecasts are not without their doubters. Both ZDNet and Engadget questioned IDC’s numbers last month, and today, independent analyst Horace Dediu of asymco is questioning Gartner’s.He says that Gartner’s assumption that Apple is “interested in maintaining margins rather than pursuing market share by changing its pricing strategy,” contradicts statements made by Apple’s COO Timothy D. Cook. He also doubts that RIM will be able to migrate from BlackBerry OS to QNX (the PlayBook OS) by 2012, as Gartner states. Finally, he doubts that the Nokia/Microsoft partnership will have that much of an effect by 2012, calling such a thing, if it was to occur, “an organizational miracle.”Dediu shared a useful chart, too, which showcases the current forecasts from various analyst firms, as well as the historical market share figures. The chart clearly shows that not all firms are on the same page when it comes to the future of the smartphone market. ABI Research, for example, sees more of a future in Samsung’s Bada OS than it does in Windows Phone.
