Ronaldo Brown aiming to fire Jamaica College to 2015 titles

first_imgJamaica College (JC) forward Ronaldo Brown said he will be looking to lead the defending champions’ goal scoring charge in their title defence this year, and hopefully surpass ‘idol’ Junior Flemmings’ 20 plus goals last season. Brown is now in his second season at Jamaica College, and has notched three goals so far this season. He moved to JC last season from Holy Trinity High, but did not land a regular starting role due to more seasoned players in that team. This year, however, he is among coach Miguel Coley’s main go-to players for the goals needed to defend the Manning Cup, Olivier Shield and FLOW Super Cup titles. He stepped up with a vital brace in the 24th and 86th minutes for JC on Monday, which saw them beat Clan Carthy High 4-0. “It is an amazing feeling to score two goals today,” Brown said on Monday while noting that he idolises Flemmings, who captained and led JC’s scoring charge last season. Building own legacy “I idolise Flemmings, and Coach has called on me to step up and get goals like he did for our school. We are a championship team, and I am trying to build my legacy without being under pressure of living up to his name,” (Flemmings’) Brown added. Meanwhile, coach Miguel Coley said his team is shifting and changing, and he is trying to put the pieces in place as the season progresses. They will next play Tivoli High at the Edward Seaga Sports Complex in West Kingston, tomorrow. “We are looking better and better and that is good for us. We have to work on our finishing and keep our noses in front, and continue working hard,” stressed Coley, who is also the assistant coach for Jamaica’s senior Reggae Boyz.last_img read more

Exclusive – Balotelli: As long as the kids love me, I don’t care what anyone thinks

first_imgMario Balotelli insists the only time he will worry about what people think of him is when kids stop loving him!The madcap Italian has been the subject of numerous lurid headlines in recent years for antics such as throwing a dart at a Manchester City youth team player and letting off a firework in his bathroom (in fact, it wasn’t actually him).But he claims none of it bothers him as long as he’s still pleasing the children.“Every morning, when I wake up, I think that maybe yesterday people are speaking bad things about me,” Balotelli said in an exclusive interview with Sport magazine. “But then I see kids coming up to me and I think I’m not doing that bad.“I could do better – of course, I could do way better – but kids are natural, they are honest. If they look at you and don’t like you, they don’t come up to you.“So if I see them always coming up to me, then it means I can’t be that bad, either as a footballer or a person. When kids stop asking for my autograph or a picture or whatever, then maybe I will start to think that I need to change something about myself. This is why I love kids.” Mario Balotelli signs autographs for young fans 1last_img read more

Arsenal blow two-goal lead at lowly Watford

first_imgHowever, Sanchez Flores, who was appointed as Hornets’ boss for the second time last week after one point from their opening four games of the season saw Javi Gracia sacked, roused the hosts for an impressive second-half fightback.Arsenal played a huge part in their own downfall too as they gifted possesion away inside their own box for Tom Cleverley to pull a goal back before David Luiz upended Roberto Pereyra, who slotted home the resulting penalty.A point sees Arsenal only move level with Manchester United, Tottenham, Chelsea and Leicester behind Liverpool and Manchester City in the early season battle for a top-four finish.However, it is Watford who will feel they should even have gone onto win the game as Arsenal boss Unai Emery’s inability to find a balance between his brilliant attack and shoddy defence continued.Emery recalled Mesut Ozil to his starting line-up for the first time since he and Sead Kolasinac were the victims of a carjacking attack in July.Ozil initially struggled to settle as Watford started the brighter with Cleverley’s rising drive forcing Bernd Leno into a fine save before Jose Holebas fired horribly off-target with a great chance from the edge of the area.However, Watford have now conceded 10 goals in their opening five games to the campaign and were opened up far too easily to allow Aubameyang to open the scoring on 21 minutes.The home fans were screaming for a foul as Dani Ceballos won back possession, but Watford were slow to react as Kolasinac burst down the left and fed Aubameyang, who spun and fired low past Ben Foster.Ozil was involved as a patient build-up from the visitors doubled their lead on 32 minutes.Two good: Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored twice for Arsenal © AFP / Ben STANSALLAt the end of a 20-pass move, Ozil freed Ainsley Maitland-Niles in behind the Watford defence and the right-back squared for Aubameyang to slot home his fifth goal in as many games this season.Twice the visitors escaped gifting Watford a way back into the game when Matteo Guendouzi was caught in possession on the edge of his own box, trying to play out from the back.But Arsenal did not learn their lesson and were finally punished when Sokratis Papastathopoulos gifted possession to Gerard Deulofeu and the Spaniard teed up Cleverley to shot low past Leno.Watford were then in the ascendancy as Deulofeu curled just wide, Ismaila Sarr scuffed a great chance for his first goal in English football off target and Pereyra’s flicked finish flashed across goal.They finally got the equaliser their second-half display deserved nine minutes from time when Pereyra was clipped by Luiz inside the box and the Argentine sent Leno the wrong way from the penalty spot.Deulofeu sent another effort inches wide and Cleverley’s fierce drive was deflected over by Luiz as wave upon wave of Watford attack continued.But is was Abdoulaye Doucoure who squandered the best chance of all for a winner deep into stoppage time when he shot too close to Leno with just the German goalkeeper to beat to leave Watford still bottom of the Premier League table.0Shares0000(Visited 12 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Roberto Pereyra celebrates Watford’s equaliser in a 2-2 draw against Arsenal © AFP / Ben STANSALLLONDON, United Kingdom, Sep 15 – Quique Sanchez Flores enjoyed a happy return to Watford as Arsenal blew a 2-0 lead at Vicarage Road to draw 2-2 on Sunday.Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang looked to have the Gunners well on course for a comfortable three points when he struck twice in 11 minutes before the break.last_img read more

McCONALOGUE SEEKS GREATER RESOURCES FOR DONEGAL AMBULANCE SERVICES

first_imgDeputy Charlie McConalogue has demanded greater resources for the ambulance service in Donegal following a series of alarming delays in the response time to local emergencies.Deputy Charlie McConalogueThe Dáil is this week debating a Fianna Fáil motion which raises concerns about a growing crisis in the ambulance service.“The Government needs to wake up to the crisis in our local ambulance service. Official figures show that last year, only one in every three people with life-threatening conditions were responded to within the target time. “The situation is worse in more rural areas. Large parts of the country, including Donegal, have often been left without any ambulance cover for long periods of time. And lives are being put at risk as a result,” said the Inishowen TD.He also said that the ambulance service is not getting the support and resources it needs to run an efficient and safe service nationwide.“Despite the selfless dedication of our local paramedics and the high quality of care they provide, they are being undermined by mismanagement of the service at a national level.“The centralisation of ambulance control and dispatch has led to serious inconsistencies in ambulance cover and a lack of local knowledge when it comes to responding to emergencies. This has meant that our local ambulances are often sent to another county for emergencies, leaving large parts of Co Donegal without any cover whatsoever. It’s an extremely dangerous situation. He added that in addition to this, the service is not adequately resourced.The Republic of Ireland has less than 1,600 ambulance staff and a budget of €137million to cover a population of 4.6 million.“Compare that to Scotland which has three times as many ambulance staff and just under twice the budget that we have here.“This week in the Dáil, Fianna Fáil is asking TDs from all parties to stand up for our local ambulance service and ensure that it gets the basic resources it needs to respond safely to emergencies. People have a right to expect that they will receive a safe and timely response in the event of life-threatening emergencies,” said Deputy McConalogue. McCONALOGUE SEEKS GREATER RESOURCES FOR DONEGAL AMBULANCE SERVICES was last modified: April 14th, 2014 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:ambulanceCharlie McConalogueResourcesTDlast_img read more

South African city domain names available

first_imgJohannesburg, Cape Town and Durban now have their own domain names on the internet, giving these cities an even greater opportunity to enhance their brands and attract business and tourists. (Image: ZAdotCities)• Five points about the future of innovation in South Africa• The South African government is on Ello• World-class tech hub planned for Joburg• Social media means more than just business in Africa• South Africa drives Africa’s internet traffic Shamin ChibbaSouth African city domain names are finally available. This month Domains.co.za announced the availability and pricing of top level domain names on the internet for three of South Africa’s major cities. The suffixes dotJoburg, dotCapetown and dotDurban cost R275 and have been selling fast, with Cape Town in the lead.The launch on 4 November marked the opening of the ZADotCities general availability phase. This meant members of the public could register the cities’ domain names, said Domains.co.za managing director Wayne Diamond. But the price excluded premium names, which were subject to premium pricing from ZA Central Registry (ZACR).According to Lucky Masilela, the chief executive of ZACR, any individual or organisation from anywhere in the world “with an affinity for South Africa’s three best-known cities will be able to register a South African cTLD (country code top level domain), on a first-come, first-served basis”.This particular phase follows the parallel sunrise and landrush phases. During the former, trademark holders can register for top level domains before they are open to the public. This ensures that these holders’ names are protected. During the landrush phase, domain names are available for registration usually to a closed group who may not be trademark holders. The cost for names in this period are usually higher than during the general availability phase.Diamond explained that having a city domain name could spark innovative ways of promoting business and tourism in each city. “Choosing a domain name with some local flavour should work well for many companies.”The benefit of a city having its own domain is that it helps to build a city’s brand. Johannesburg Tourism Company said it would help to promote the city as a gateway to and hub of Africa. “DotJoburg will promote a sense of place. For us it is about making people aware of how vibrant the city is,” the city’s tourism unit said.Of the 1 170 applicants Domains.co.za received before launch date, dotCapetown far outnumbered the other cities, with 623 addresses registered under its domain. Johannesburg had 297 and Durban 250 applications. However, this skewing of numbers was due to one unnamed person, who registered 237 dotCapetown addresses. The latest statistics show that Johannesburg is still lagging behind Cape Town with 2 188 to the latter’s 2 989. Durban has 1 521.Three of South Africa’s four major banks have applied for a city domain name and most of the country’s favourite technology brands have applied for all three domain names. How to registerApplicants have to register through Domains.co.za, which is South Africa’s only operational Icann (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) accredited registrar. ZACR has also developed the Mark Vailidation System, a trademark protection system that can help to protect brands from trademark abuses.The domain names had to go through a rigorous process to be approved before they were made available to the public. Icann first assessed the stability of the infrastructure that would run the domain. Thereafter, it checked if the domain names could be sustained financially. Once the names were evaluated and approved, ZACR had to enlist the three domain names for $185 000 (R2.05-million) each. ZACR is also required to pay a $25 000 (R276 000) annual licence fee per domain.last_img read more

[Review] Angry Birds Star Wars: I Have A Good Feeling About This

first_img4 Keys to a Kid-Safe App The game starts at the beginning of Episode IV: A New Hope with the familiar Red Bird as Luke Skywalker. Red Bird cannot do much at first, he is just the same bludgeoning bird that every Angry Birds game starts with, except for a tuft of wispy blonde hair that would make Mark Hamill proud. We are soon introduced to Black Bird, the bomber of old, who has traded in explosions for the Force in his role as Obi-Wan. After several levels fighting bad piggy Tuskan Raiders, Red Bird learns to use a Lightsaber. Yup, you can now use a Lightsaber and the Force in Angry Birds.It gets better. Yellow Bird is introduced soon enough … as Han Solo, complete with blaster. Then comes the kicker. After achieving a certain number of stars, you unlock the Millenium Falcon. That’s right. The Millenium freaking Falcon. The Falcon is an not your ordinary bird though. It is an egg, and you only get five of them to start. When you unleash the egg, you target a certain spot and tap the screen. The Falcon then appears, blasting everything and anything in its path.  It’s an awesome trump card to bulldoze your way through even the most difficult levels.  Rovio has made a few interesting choices with the game play of Angry Birds Star Wars. Most of the previous versions of Angry Birds started slow with easy beginning levels so you can get a handle of flinging your avian heroes at the suidaeus evilus. This time around, Rovio figures, if you are plunking down $2.99 to buy yet another Angry Birds game, you are probably already familiar with how to play it.  You battle from the desert planet of Tatooine with the usual mazes of bricks, ice and metal as your obstacles. But a Stars Wars themed game would not be complete without a venture into space. At later levels, the game transitions to the gravitational physics that Rovio introduced in Angry Birds Space. Between the new capabilities of your birds and the increased difficulty and varying environments, Angry Birds Star Wars provides enough new material that even experts are going to have to remaster their fowl-flinging skills.And that is Rovio’s particular genius. In a world where apps are popular for a month then fade to oblivion (does anyone still play Draw Something?), it has managed to create a franchise where each successive iteration is as new and challenging as the previous one. Instead of just slapping a new skin on an old game, Angry Birds Star Wars introduces new game play in fun and challenging environments.The best part? All that is served up with all the geeky goodness that is Star Wars. What’s not to like?

Sequels tend to be pale imitations of the original and if the game maker is not careful fans may gradually lose interest. Rovio, has been able to conquer this problem and remain at the top of the charts with each successive release of Angry Birds (except for, maybe, Amazing Alex). The newest Angry Birds Star Wars is another feather in Rovio’s cap.The result of Rovio’s partnership with LucasArts is a winner, a combination of the familiar catapulted birds mixed with the lore of a galaxy far, far away.
