Ireland to face Zimbabwe in one-day international series

first_img “Ireland have enjoyed some really hard tussles with Zimbabwe over the years and I expect these games will be equally tough. “It’ll be a test for the squad playing in different conditions, and it’ll also serve as good preparation for when we travel on to Windhoek for the Intercontinental Cup clash with Namibia.” All three ODIs will be played in Harare, with the first game scheduled for October 9. The second match will take place two days later, with the third pencilled in for the 13th. The cup clash with Namibia gets under way on October 24. Ireland will travel to Zimbabwe for a three-match one-day international series in October. The tourists will also play a four-day game against Zimbabwe A ahead of their ICC Intercontinental Cup tie against Namibia. “It’s great to be playing what should be a really competitive series,” said Ireland head coach John Bracewell. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Coutinho reported to complete Bayern coach Flick’s starting 11

first_imgPhilippe CoutinhoKampala, Uganda | XINHUA |   Brazilian midfielder Philippe Coutinho is said to be Bayern coach Hansi Flick’s missing jigsaw piece for Saturday’s Champions League duel against Chelsea.The 28-year-old is most likely going to replace injured French forward Kingsley Coman along the left flank, although he has only been on the pitch in action for 27 minutes since March.“He is in good shape at present and show his qualities,” the 55-year-old Bayern head coach commented.The last 16 second leg (3-0 in the first) could be the Brazilian’s last chance to present himself as the gifted on-loan footballer from Barcelona appears to be heading for English Premier League’s club Arsenal in the 2020/2021 season.For the other positions, the Bayern head coach will most likely choose the back-row of Alphonso Davies, David Alaba, Jerome Boateng, and Kimmich in front of keeper Manuel Neuer. Thiago and Goretzka are also likely to play in central midfield next to the forwards Mueller, Serge Gnabry, Coutinho, and Robert Lewandowski.****XINHUAShare on: WhatsApplast_img read more

Eastern athletes ready to shine

first_imgArch-rivals St Mary High and Buff Bay High are again expected to fight for the title at the second meet of the 2017 Digicel Grand Prix Athletics Series, the Eastern Championships, at the UWI-Usain Bolt Track tomorrow.The head coach of Titchfield High, Julian Ivy, welcomes the Digicel Grand Prix initiative, calling it “a wonderful idea.”Most of the schools in the Eastern region are really strapped for cash,” he said.”The eastern region is looked upon as the least in track and field in Jamaica. However, we’ve produced a lot of top athletes who have gone on to excel at the highest international level; and we’ve to understand that before they got to that stage, these coaches aided their development,” Ivy added.Some of the most notable include Morant Bay High alumnus Juliet Cuthbert, who won sprint double silver at the Barcelona Olympics; and another Morant Bay High star – who later transferred to Kingston College – sprint hurdler Hansle Parchment. Parchment won bronze at the London 2012 Olympics and silver at the 2015 World Championships in Beijing, China.Competition away from their training grounds this season has been sparse for most schools participating at the Eastern Championships, but St Mary High’s boys and girls have shown all-round strength at some of the development meets.These include The Queen’s Grace Jackson Invitational and Camperdown Classic, with Class Two girls Keresa Richardson, Janaeli Campbell and Kay-ann James looking dominant among the Eastern Championship entrants, along with Class Two boy Lenard Hall.PARTICULARLY STRONGThe latter is particularly strong in the 800m, where his female colleagues also appear quite strong in Classes One and Two, with Tameria Howell (Class Two) and Shanice Panton (Class One) headlining their charge.Among the boys’ sprinters, Morant Bay’s Jaheim Henry and Annotto Bay’s Kenoy Francis have done fairly well and should be among the Class Two front-runners, with St Mary High’s Travis Henry and Nicardo Vincent also expected to shine.Among Class One girls, Morant Bay’s Tishelle Fulcott and Nneka Francis, along with Oberlin High’s Latoya Graham, should feature.Though Buff Bay High have not shown their hand, they have gone toe to toe with St Mary High for the championship in recent years and are expected to feature big time again.”Right now, it’s between Buff Bay and St Mary High,” Ivy predicted. “Morant Bay will be coming strong as well.”We (Titchfield) are not expecting to be in the top three, as we’ve a fairly young team.”Nonetheless, Ivy said his Class One boys, Kai Chang and Moses Parkinson, will place high in the Class One Digicel Grand Prix Championship events, the high jump and discus.The Digicel Grand Prix Championship events are the 100m, 200m, 400m, 800m, long jump, high jump, discus and 4x400m relays for Classes One and Two boys’ and girls.The series consists of five meets and the top two athletes from each of the Digicel Grand Prix Championship events will advance to the final, the G.C. Foster Classics, which will be held at the National Stadium on March 11.Each athlete can only participate in one individual event at the final, which carries a grand prize of $1 million dollars in gym equipment for the top boys’ and girls’ schools, $500,000 for second, and $250,000 for third.last_img read more

SJAK, Fidelity renew coach of the month partnership

first_imgMarketing Manager Nicholas Malesi urged other corporates to sponsor support local sports since it pays.“From out branding perspective and our obligations to the community this partnership gives us a lot of fulfillment and we see positive impacts. It is such small acts in the sector that contribute to greater things even at national level,” he noted“We have sponsored the award for three years and it has improved competition among coaches to do better and that has an impact on the level of competition among players. This manifests in the national team and we are now proud that Harambee stars are heading to the Africa Cup of Nations,” Malesi addedWhile pointing out that corporations shy away from sports sponsorships due to poor accountability, Malesi urged recognized sporting entities that strive to attain transparent management.“There are federations and clubs that uphold integrity and should not be neglected because some bodies lack integrity,” he urgedSJAK president Chris Mbaisi urged coaches to keep improving as their efforts are appreciated and contribute to overall improved performance by the national team.“We are grateful to Fidelity insurance for partnering with us since 2016. We have come a long way in this journey and it is my happiness to see them remaining one of our key partners,” MbaisiThe concluded season saw among others former Gor Mahia coach Dylan Kerr, Bernard Mwalala of Bandari, Dennis Kitambi of AFC Leopards, Robert Matano of Tusker and Paul Odhiambo of Sony Sugar pocket the Sh75000 and personalized trophy.The two entities will review the prize money upwards after the transitional football calendar concludes in June.“We started modestly at Sh50,000 in 2016 and we are now at Sh75,000. Hopefully the award will grow bigger at the beginning of our 5th year so that recipients take home bigger figures than they currently get,” Malesi added.0Shares0000(Visited 4 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Fidelity Insurance Marketing and Business Development Manager Nicholas Malesi with SJAK president Chris Mbaisi during the signing of the new agreement for the coach of the month award.

Surf and turf teenager

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest As a 15-year-old Blake Hanko enjoys the best of both worlds growing up here in Ohio — at least for an outdoors-minded teenager. The Erie County 4-H member spends his summers hanging around his family’s Cranberry Creek Marina, located on the shore of Lake Erie just west of Huron, in the heart of some of the best fishing the Great Lakes has to offer. I have boated and fished out of the marina several times in the past couple of seasons and have enjoyed getting to know the folks who operate the popular “mom & pop” boat business — Bob and Susan Hanko — and have come to envy Blake’s lifestyle and demeanor.At Cranberry Creek, when he’s not helping out his mom or sisters in the bait shop or his dad on the boat docks, he’s netting water snakes or casting for smallmouth bass and perch from the beach and breakwalls of the marina — or any manner of adventures a kid can find in such a setting. Hanko even has his own 16-foot outboard-powered boat, which he’s been puttering around in since he was 12 after taking his watercraft operator’s class, and is an accomplished boat handler and angler.When the teenager isn’t “messing about” with the boats and the marina, the balance of Blake’s free time is spent on the family farm, some eight miles inland. In the fall and winter, when he’s not tending to his 10 head of market steers or his hay business, he’s hunting deer or taking target practice to hone his shooting skills. This spring Blake planted a garden, which will keep the lad busy and the family in fresh vegetables this summer, and perhaps offer something additional for him to show at the Erie County Fair.As a kid growing up in suburbia where I had to beg a car ride to the nearest fishable water and discharging a BB gun in my own yard put me on the wrong side of the law, I can only imagine what life would have been like growing with one foot in the country and the other in a boat.As for Blake, he doesn’t appear to take any of it for granted. He has a great work ethic, appreciates what he’s got, and has his head on straight. At least from this parent’s perspective.  Mom and Dad may beg to differ…last_img read more

Soybean prices not falling out of bed

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest This past year the U.S. had 94.5 million acres of corn. U.S. soybeans reached 83.7 million acres. This compares to 2015 when the U.S. corn was 88 million acres while soybeans were 82.7 million acres. As we look ahead to 2017, early ideas suggest soybean acres will increase at the expense of corn acres, which should decline. At no surprise to anyone, wheat acres across the U.S. continue to shrink. This year the U.S. planted 55 million acres of wheat. USDA estimates the U.S. will plant 50.2 million acres this next season. When there is a world wide huge mountain of wheat stocks, it is no wonder wheat prices are at 10 year lows. Ohio’s producers are seeing above average to fantastic soybean yields in many parts of the state. Many will see new farm records as yields were beyond expectations compared to earlier projections. While it is the extreme, various reports indicated soybean yields reaching 80 bushels or higher in numerous areas in Ohio.Soybeans seemed to move more easily to town this fall when those extra bushels did not reach earlier projections of $8.50 to $9 for harvest time prices. Many producers were much more willing to sell soybeans while storing corn. Basis levels for corn and soybeans did not reach the normally wide basis levels seen at harvest time for many areas of Ohio. While harvest time basis levels for soybeans were November minus 30 to 40 cents, they were nowhere close to levels seen in the western Corn Belt that this year were November minus 70 cents or more. It is very common to see basis levels in the west at wider numbers compared to Ohio. Ohio is in a unique situation with several crushing plants having the ability to crush 50,000 to 100,000 bushels of soybeans every day. At this end of October writing, the U.S. corn harvest progress was 61% while soybean harvest progress was 76% complete. Both are near five-year averages.Input costs will see some changes for the 2017 season. Fertilizer prices have declined compared to levels seen in past years. Corn and soybean prices are considerably below those seen three to five years ago with producers welcoming any kind of reduced input costs for 2017. However, seed corn costs have remained high for several years and have seen little push to the downside. Nobody seems willing to break the mold and reduce costs to the producer. However, many will provide cash discounts for early payment Dec. 1. Many producers already have a great idea of which corn varieties performed great or were a bust as corn harvest comes to an end. While many may be disappointed at corn yields for 2016, they also know they performed much better compared to similar growing conditions of 10 years ago. The killer of corn yields continues to be heat and a lack of rain during that critical corn pollination period.Corn and soybean exports continue to be strong, especially soybeans. Demand is strong for both compared to the poor corn export demand of several years ago when only soybeans enjoyed a strong export demand picture. October set new records for U.S. soybean exports.The last week of October, the U.S. exported 100 million bushels of soybeans. That level broke a previous October 2016 record of 94 million bushels. To put some perspective on numbers, in previous fall harvest years, the U.S. has struggled to reach 100 million bushels as a weekly export total for corn, soybeans, and wheat. Total 2016-2017 marketing years U.S. export sales for soybeans that same October week reached 1.24 billion bushels while the year ago totals were 997 million bushels, a gain of 24%.Late last month, December CBOT corn was near the top end of its $3.30 to $3.60 range. January CBOT soybeans were near $10.25, near the top of a two-month high. In spite of record U.S. soybean production, soybeans are not falling out of bed. Stay tuned.last_img read more

Amazon Forces Kindle Lending Club to Rebrand – Now BookLending.com

first_imgTop Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Related Posts audrey watters Tags:#E-Books#web center_img A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… We covered the launch of the new startup the Kindle Lending Club last month. The startup takes advantage of the Amazon Kindle’s new lending feature that was introduced in December – the ability to loan (some of) your e-books to another Kindle user for a 14-day period.But not surprisingly, Amazon has responded to the startup. Amazon isn’t shutting down its service (that’s good news), but it is demanding that the startup change its name. Amazon owns the trademark to “Kindle,” so starting tomorrow the startup becomes BookLending.com.Both sharing and borrowing are free through BookLending.com. You can browse for the titles that other users have made available, and you can make available the books you’re willing to lend. The site simply matches borrowers and lenders. The rest of the Kindle lending rules stay in place: the loan is for 14 days. You can’t read a title while it’s on loan to someone else. And you can only loan a title once.The name BookLending.com isn’t nearly as catchy as Kindle Lending Club. And the startup has a number of competitors in the e-book lending business, including LendInk, that connects both Kindle and Nook users. 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Marketlast_img read more
