‘I nearly died’ – Maradona misses out on first title as coach

first_img“I nearly died… But it’s fine. I’m sad for my boys, though,” Maradona said after the match.The Argentine great and his team faced a tough task heading into the second-leg match, having been held 1-1 in the first leg at home in Culiacan, in the northwestern state of Sinaloa.They managed to hold Atletico to 90 goalless minutes playing away in the central city of San Luis Potosi.But Spanish defender Unai Bilbao slotted in the winning goal for the home team in the 103rd minute, after Dorados ‘keeper Gaspar Servio failed to clear a free kick.The loss ended a 14-game unbeaten streak for Dorados, who faced a hostile crowd of nearly 25,000 that booed Maradona relentlessly.Maradona, 58, took the coaching job at the Sinaloa-based club in September — amusing skeptics who questioned why the 1986 World Cup champion, who has publicly battled various addictions, would move to a place better known for drug cartels than football.But he has answered his critics by coaching the struggling Dorados to back-to-back finals, both against San Luis.San Luis defeated Dorados 4-3 on aggregate in the fall season finals in December.Having now won the spring finals, too, the club — an affiliate of Atletico Madrid — gain automatic promotion to the first division. Had they lost, they would have faced a playoff against Dorados to decide which won promotion.Maradona can legitimately boast to having turned Dorados around: they were in 13th place in their 15-team division when he arrived.But the dream of winning a title as coach still eludes him, after stints managing the Argentine national team and various clubs in Argentina, the Middle East and now Mexico.In April, he said he planned to leave Dorados at the end of the season, alleging the league’s referees were biased against him.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Diego Maradona watched his Dorados team lose the Mexican second-division final against San Luis. © AFP / Ulises RuizSAN LUIS POTOSI, Mexico, May 6 – Diego Maradona’s hopes of winning his first coaching title were dashed Sunday as his Dorados team lost the Mexican second-division finals, along with their shot at promotion.Rivals Atletico San Luis scored the lone goal of the second leg in extra time to clinch the title and a spot in the first division — the second time they have left Maradona empty-handed in two consecutive finals.last_img read more

Banyana captain gives back to football

first_img29 April 2013Banyana Banyana central defender Janine van Wyk continues to be a trendsetter in women’s football development. Having set up her own JVW Girls School Soccer League a year ago, she has now bought a franchise in the Sasol League in which top performers from her school league feature.The captain of South Africa’s women’s football team founded the JVW Girls School Soccer league a year ago with the aim of giving school girls an opportunity to develop their careers in the game of football.The Mondeor-JVW Football Club is wholly made up of girls drawn up from the JVW Schools League and includes van Wyk herself, who moved from national champions Palace Super Falcons, where she was playing last season. Another top player in the side is Van Wyk’s Banyana teammate Robyn Moodaly.VisionThe Banyana Banyana defender said she left her former club and defending Sasol League champions Falcons to fulfil her vision of developing upcoming women footballers. She believes the club she started has created an excellent platform for younger players to achieve their ambition.“I decided to buy Mondeor because of the development structures they had in place already,” Van Wyk explained. “Since I have an interest in girls’ football development, this is an opportunity to give the young players something to work towards and realise their potential as footballers.“Playing in the Sasol League is a step in the right direction for this team and I also feel it can only enhance my performance in Banyana colours.‘Inspiration’“I have set myself on working harder as a player and [to] serve as an inspiration for the up-and-coming players within the team.“We have been playing well since the Sasol League season started, having played four games, losing two, drawing one and winning the other,” said van Wyk, who serves as a player/coach for the club.“I have several coaches who have been helping me in the club. That includes Lisa McAuliffe, a former player in the Irish Women’s League,” she added.ExampleBanyana Banyana coach Joseph Mkhonza believes the robust Banyana defender has done well for herself as a player and is doing sterling work for younger players on the development front. He hopes that her example will encourage other former players to get involved with the development of women’s football in the country.“I am very happy that Janine has taken this great step. While she is still an active player, she is also looking at giving younger players opportunities to grow,” Mkhonza stated.“Coming from Super Falcons, a team that had star players, I don’t think playing for her new club will affect her performance as a national team player. She is a natural winner and will continue working harder, and at the same time guide and develop future stars.“I have seen the team myself. It is growing and has huge potential,” he concluded.SAinfo reporterWould you like to use this article in your publication or on your website? See: Using SAinfo materiallast_img read more

DotNetNuke: An Open-Source CMS … For Microsoft Web Sites

first_imgCognitive Automation is the Immediate Future of… 3 Areas of Your Business that Need Tech Now brian proffitt Tags:#.NET#apache#cms#content management system#Microsoft#Open Source#Web Content Version 7.0 of DotNetNuke, an open-source content-management system that you’ve probably never heard of, is now released and bringing enterprise-level web content functionality to users committed to Microsoft-based infrastructure. The .NET-based DotNetNuke will be a significant player in a growing cloud-computing environment where Microsoft Web servers may be more relevant.Web Servers: Where Microsoft Doesn’t Rule Depending on how you examine the data, less than one-fifth of the world’s sites run Microsoft-based Web servers like Internet Information Server. And, unlike all the cool kids running open-source code like Apache and nginx, IIS players don’t always want to run popular content-management systems like Joomla, Drupal or WordPress.[Update: The preceding paragraph was corrected to update an error regarding the capabilities of CMS systems and IIS. -BKP]Let’s be honest: 16.52% of the world’s tracked Web servers running IIS in November 2012 is tiny compared to Apache’s 57.23% share. But having almost 17% of servers locked up is still a heck of lot of sites — 103.3 million, actually. Even if just 1% of them need a WordPress-like CMS, that’s a little over a million sites pining away.It’s all very well to snicker at these shops and prescribe spinning up some Apache-on-Linux servers, and installing Joomla or one of the other CMSes. But CIOs make IT investments for a strategic reason and have put a lot of time and money into their infrastructure. Generally, they’re not just rolling dice, which means it’s not always easy to get them to shift to non-Microsoft technologies. Enter DotNetNuke Corp., maker of its self-named .NET-based platform. The CMS plays very well with native Microsoft tech and provides CIOs a robust tool that compares favorably with Drupal. Since its initial release in late 2002, DotNetNuke has enjoyed a strong following within the Microsoft ecosystem, and has about 800,000 registered users, according to Shaun Walker, co-founder and CTO of the company.Filling The .NET GapThe latest iteration of DotNetNuke has a broad range of new features, with a new interface that includes a more-robust editor and version-management system, as well as Active Directory support so enterprise employees can plug into site-content systems seamlessly. Cascading-style-sheet management is reportedly a lot easier to use, which should make designers happy.DotNetNuke is a bit of an oddity within the Microsoft world. It’s actually an open-source licensed platform, using an MIT software license. The MIT license is what’s known as a permissive license, which means the code for the software is open but users and developers aren’t required to publish their changes, as with restrictive licenses like the GNU General Public License. Walker highlighted this as one reason why Microsoft-oriented customers don’t have a problem with using an open-source platform.That DotNetNuke’s potential market is such a small minority of servers in the world might seem like a liability, but Walker believes that there is a lot of potential for DotNetNuke just around the corner. With the advent of HTML5 and Java-based sites, “pretty soon the underlying architecture won’t matter as much.”If development does shift more to the client-side layer, then the Web server layer where Apache, nginx, and IIS live would become more of an abstraction. Given the relatively low cost of cloud-based instances of even IIS, companies with more .Net assets and developers might therefore migrate to IIS in order to streamline their IT resources.That’s the vision Walker has, but it remains to be seen if IIS can experience strong growth, even in the cloud, up against the free Apache and nginx servers.For now, DotNetNuke soldiers on, filling a gap for IT managers who are still dedicated to the Microsoft Way.Image courtesy of Shutterstock.center_img IT + Project Management: A Love Affair Massive Non-Desk Workforce is an Opportunity fo… Related Posts last_img read more

Shubman Gill ready for international cricket: Chief Selector MSK Prasad

first_imgShubman Gill has received his maiden India call-up as a replacement for KL Rahul in the Indian squad for the limited-overs tour of New Zealand, which starts later this month, and the chairman of selector MSK Prasad feels the enormously talented Punjab batsman is now ready for international cricket.”Shubman is comfortable both opening the innings as well as playing in the middle-order. For New Zealand series, we are looking at him as the reserve opener behind Shikhar (Dhawan) and Rohit (Sharma). I won’t comment if he will make it to World Cup but he was phenomenal as an opener for India A in New Zealand,” Prasad said.”We have discussed with Rahul (Dravid), that Shubman is ready for international cricket. The best part is the clutch of A tours which has made all these players battle ready for the biggest challenge,” Prasad added.Prasad also said that Rishabh Pant is a “champion cricketer in the making”, who is very much in the mix for the 2019 India’s World Cup campaign for his ability to seamlessly switch formats.After being “rested” for the ODI series against Australia and New Zealand, there have been conjectures about his place in the England-bound squad but Prasad set the record straight about selection committee’s plans about talents such as Pant and Shubman Gill. “Rishabh Pant played three T20s and four Test matches in Australia and that had an impact on his body. He needed complete rest for two weeks and then we will take a call on how many matches he will play against England Lions. Let me put it straight, he is very much in our World Cup plans. He is a champion player in the making and even he is not fully aware the kind of potential he has,” Prasad told PTI in an exclusive interview.advertisementPrasad is happy that Pant is now understanding what skipper Virat Kohli and coach Ravi Shastri expect of him and Sydney was a testimony to that.”Ravi and Virat had advised him to put his head down and respect the match situation and he did exactly that. He proved that he can switch gears seamlessly. When we picked him for Tests, experts were sceptical about his keeping but 11 catches in a Test in England, record dismissals in Australia series proves that selection committee is vindicated,” the former India keeper stated.The likes of Hanuma Vihari, Mayank Agarwal, Prithvi Shaw, Khaleel Ahmed have all been impressive in international cricket and that makes Prasad very happy.”I regularly discuss the progress of the players with Ravi and Rahul. Have a look at how we have planned a player’s progression from Ranji Trophy, A team to senior team. Look at Hanuma Vihari and Mayank Agarwal. They don’t look intimidated when thrown into the deep end of the pool,” said Prasad.For him and his colleagues, one of the biggest plus points has been taking the risk of unleashing two wrist spinners in Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal in the ODI set-up, replacing Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja.”We received flak when we had replaced world’s No 1 and 2 spinner (as per ICC Rankings) with two young wrist spinners. One and half years down the line, they (Kuldeep and Chahal) have had contribution in at least 70 percent of India’s limited overs wins,” the satisfaction was evident in his voice. While Kuldeep is now firmly in the Test team mix after his five-wicket haul in Sydney but Prasad reckons that he still has “some way to go” as Ashwin and Jadeja are still the country’s premier spinners in the longest format.The chairman of selectors also spoke about how they had to go against the popular sentiment when they rested Jasprit Bumrah for the two Tests against the West Indies.”Trust me, had Jasprit played those two Tests against West Indies, he wouldn’t have played all four Test against Australia. The support staff has really monitored him well. He is now fitter and stronger and with Bharath Arun continuously working with him, he has improved as a bowler,” Prasad was all praise for him.”But a lot of credit should go to Jasprit because Arun gave him a plan but it was up to him to make the effort to implement the plan. He has really worked hard. When we first picked him, so many were sceptical whether it was prudent to pick a white ball specialist but at the end of the year, we can all see the results.”Mohammed Shami’s peak fitness during the season and his ability to bowl at the same speed during third and fourth spell could be attributed to the Bengal speedster’s new-found love for following fitness regimen.advertisement”Shami was one such bowler, who has of late started enjoying fitness routines, which wasn’t the case earlier. Trainer Shankar Basu has prepared an exclusive chart for him, which he follows religiously now.”His craft as a fast bowler was never doubted but it was his fitness that used to let him down. If you saw, he was bowling 140 plus in the last Tests in England and Australia. Shami’s fitness has been the biggest plus for him,” Prasad concluded.Also Read | How Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul got into trouble for Koffee with Karan: A timelineAlso Read | Not thinking about about World Cup, says Vijay Shankar after India ODI call-upAlso Read | India vs Australia: Ambati Rayudu reported for suspect bowling actionlast_img read more
