Head coach of Victoria Kings satisfied with performance

first_img… aiming to win the second halfHEAD coach of Victoria Kings, Rawle ‘Jug-head’ Huntley, expressed to Chronicle Sport his satisfaction with the team’s performance in the first half of the GFF-Elite League and he isVictoria Kings coach Rawle `Jug-head’ Huntleyaiming to top the second half.“I feel fully satisfied with the performance of the team, after the first game when we were humiliated by the Army, and this was because of distractions off the field that led to us not being focused.“After that we united as a team and got stronger with the rallying point being the very next game which we drew 0-0 with Conquerors.Thereafter, we grew from strength to strength and we are still building because there is always room for improvement. One of the major problems we had was indiscipline of some players, but ‘all-in-all’ it was a good all-round team effort throughout. Veteran defender Sherlock Dowden was consistently outstanding,” Huntley stated.The Kings who ended in 3rd position with 8 points are in their first season of the Elite League and according to coach Huntley a lot was learnt. “I must admit the first half was a true learning experience for us as a team and for me personally.“I learnt a lot, especially from the Army, whose dominance was due to their superior organisational capacity; of course they have the resources.”“There is still a lot of work to be done by all the teams, including the Army, as we strive to reach a level of quality football in the Elite League. But I think a lot could be learnt by all the teams from the Army’s flawless run. Their organisation on and off the field and their fitness are components worthy of emulating,” Huntley advised.It has not been smooth sailing for the head coach who emphasised his loyalty to the team but is calling for support, “I am willing to work a hundred and fifty percent for the team, but the kind of support I have been getting is kind of ‘fishy’. There is so much that goes on off the field that is counter-productive and I intend to address these issues when we meet, this weekend, for the first time since the first half ended.“The players, management and coaching staff, fans and administrators of the club must have a good working relationship if we are seeking success,” Huntley stressed.The Kings head coach is relishing the long break ahead for the Elite teams, as well as the upcoming transfer period and has promised to triumph once the club gets organised properly. “I feel the break is adequate and will do good for the players and for the coaches who will have enough time to correct problems while getting better prepared. In fact, I intend to fully utilise the period as the second round is expected to be more competitive.“I am looking forward to the transfer window when we will strengthen the squad. Negotiations have already begun with several players and once the necessary support from the club’s administrators is there, we intend to win the second round and that’s our goal. The key is getting ourselves organised.”The rookie coach of the Elite League season two also showered praise on the competition with special mention of the Army.“The Elite League is the only way forward for Guyana’s football and there are lots of opportunities and benefits for players and officials alike.“From what I have seen, the GDF team seem to be the best prepared and they looked well organised for the entire first round and that is why they are at the top. I indeed learnt a lot from them,” Huntley acknowledged.last_img

Bok victory seals a sporting weekend

first_imgBok stalwarts: Saturday’s match against the Wallabies marked the 50th cap for both Jannie du Plessis and Morné Steyn. Photo: SA Rugby By Anne Taylor30 September 2013It was a great sporting  weekend for South Africa – Ernie Els had a cracker of a round at St Andrews putting him in contention to win the Dunhill Classic, cyclist Louis Meintjes raced to a silver medal in the under-23 road race at the UCI World Championships in  Italy – and, best of all, the Springboks beat the Australians 28-8 in a thrilling match at Newlands in Cape Town on Saturday.The All Blacks won against Argentina, setting up the final between the world’s two best teams on Saturday (October 5) at Ellis Park in Johannesburg. The Springboks will need to beat the All Blacks and score a bonus point, without conceding one, to win the Rugby Championship.“A few things we have worked on that worked, this is a special bunch of players, really hungry to do well for their country,” coach Heyneke Meyer said after the match. “We don’t play on emotion, but focus on task at hand. We are in with a chance to win championship, and are where we wanted to be.”The last time the Aussies won at the Newlands rugby stadium in Cape Town was in 1992. Saturday’s game was also the Springboks’ 50th test at Newlands, the first ground in South Africa to host the national team 50 times. And it was Morné du Plessis and Jannie du Plessis’ 50th game. Du Plessis and his brother Bismarck became the first South African siblings to achieve 50 caps a piece.Read the match report on SA.info: Bok win sets up showdown vs NZlast_img read more

Young people must be empowered to drive SA’s development

first_imgMandla Maseko, who will be the first black South African astronautThe recently held elections in South Africa once again shone a spotlight on the importance of active citizenry, pride and patriotism in our country and its heritage as well as an indomitable hope for a better future.For many of our youth who were born during the two decades of democratic freedom in our country, the elections provided a powerful reminder of how citizens can pool their collective power to make a difference to our country. We ourselves own the power to build the South Africa we want to see by 2030.Young people are a critical force in this. You have the enthusiasm, vibrancy, courage and spirit to do things differently, to make changes that will bring a better life for the millions of our people.Is it any wonder that many of the innovations we most enjoy in our lives were spearheaded by young people and it is these individuals that continue to inspire us – young and old alike. People like Steve Jobs who inspired the Apple revolution throughout the world.In South Africa we have people like Mandla Maseko who will be the first black South African astronaut and Siya Xuza who has had a minor planet named after him by NASA based on his ground breaking work. A little piece of South Africa lives in space through the planet named Siyaxuza.We may not know what active citizenship is as a concept but when we look at people like Siya Xuza and Mandla Maseko, we realise that the meaning does not matter. What matters is that these inspiring young people have done what they could, when they could with the resources they could! They were excellent at what they needed to do in their respective fields and soon enough, they received the recognition and accolades that they deserved. However, this is not the end for them. We will yet hear of their contributions to South Africa in particular and the world in general.This is the spirit that must drive the implementation of the National Development Plan which recognises the role young people can and must play in South Africa’s development.Recognising that we have a rapidly urbanising and increasingly youthful population, the NDP or Vision 2030, presents an unprecedented opportunity to harness the talent, passion and energy of the youth to help boost economic growth and development in the country. By being innovative and creative in how we do this, we will be able to ensure the gainful employment of our young people.The NDP recognizes that all too often young people bear the brunt of unemployment, and as a result, the NDP has adopted a “youth lens” in preparing its proposals to help young people become active, contributing citizens moving forward.The implementation of the NDP will see young people receiving quality education – particularly around maths and science programmes, skills transfer and training. Government will be expected to play its part by ensuring adequate teacher training as well as enabling infrastructure for schools and tertiary institutions. Communities and civil society are expected to play their part by developing programmes, together the relevant institutions, to provide life-skills and entrepreneurship training. Organised business is expected to expand learnerships, comply the tax incentives to support the employment of young people and create formalised graduate recruitment schemes.The implementation of the NDP will see South Africa become a nation that collectively cares for its young people as envisaged by President Mandela. The soul of our nation will be carried by productive and engaged young people.Ultimately, the National Development Plan must result in a more united, cohesive society – the words unity in diversity must extend beyond the pages on which I write them.To achieve this, we must all play our part in our individual spaces. We must each do what we can, where we can, when we can to make our homes, communities and country, safer, happier, prosperous and fulfilled. I urge each of you reading these words to give them life by going into your community to see what you can do to make someone else’s life slightly brighter. South Africa has many social and economic challenges. The National Development Plan clearly recognises this.The Plan also identifies the required interventions that must be taken to address these challenges sustainably and durably. We cannot and must not be grappling with these 20 years from now. The year in which we celebrate 20 years of democracy must be remembered in history as the year in which South Africa collectively – you and I included – decided to do things differently to grow our country. We must begin by prioritising the growth and development of our children, our young people. They are our greatest legacy.Ms Wendy Tlou is Director: Strategic Marketing and Communication at Brand South Africalast_img read more

Tinypay.me: The E-commerce Long Tail is Still Twitching

first_imgA Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Tags:#e-commerce#web center_img In February of this year, TinyPay.me, a bootstrapped Dutch startup, launched the simplest tool around for selling goods online. It had a clean, single-page interface and didn’t even require account creation. At LeWeb in Paris this month, where it was among the finalists in the startup competition, it revealed its new direction. Right now (invitation below), any site owner can use TinyPay.me to create a branded C2C marketplace on which the site owner and visitors can sell products. Essentially, TinyPay.me is a build-your-own Etsy.That’s exciting, but even more exciting is that early next year, it will be possible for site owners to use filters and tags to curate merchandise that is for sale on all of TinyPay.me, thus increasing their offering to their audiences with minimal effort. With this innovative distribution model, TinyPay.me will enable entrepreneurs to act as clearinghouses for products that appeal to their particular audiences. This platform may just be what long tail e-commerce has been waiting for.Internet legend has it that eBay, the first C2C marketplace, came to be because the founder’s fiancée collected Pez dispensers and he wanted to build her a platform for trading them. The site lost its homey, flea market feel years ago, as power sellers and wholesalers gradually took it over. And it wasn’t until 10 years after eBay’s arrival that someone came along and put the warm and fuzzy back into the C2C marketplace model. That gutsy upstart we all know and love was Etsy, which targets the huge vertical market for handmade goods, a vertical that can’t be touched by either the hucksters who have overrun eBay or big brands.Pamela Poole is a blogger, translator and tech writer, and founder of Francophilia.com, a social startup for Francophiles. Originally from California, she now lives in Paris, where her involvement in the vibrant startup scene keeps her from spending too much time in the bakeries.Etsy worked so well that me-toos continue to pop up, like Bonanza (formerly Bonanzle), which just bought and merged with another relatively new one, 1000 Markets. In Europe, we have Dawanda and a recent addition, A Little Market, which somehow managed to raise €500,000 in France this year in what is starting to look like a rather glutted market. But maybe there’s no end to the demand for crocheted beanies.Now, thanks to TinyPay.me, entrepreneurs who might want to sell something besides Betty Boop dog tag jewelry (which I love as much as the next girl, don’t get me wrong) will be able to create their own C2C marketplaces easily and at no cost.Here’s how it works: Say a seller called Kiteboy writes a blog about kites that’s read by tens of thousands of kite enthusiasts. Chances are a lot of these people design, build, sell, trade and collect kites. He creates a TinyPay.me marketplace, adds his logo, a background, a little description, and picks a URL: kiteboy.tinypay.me. Kiteboy can sell his own kites, of course, but the really beautiful thing is that every single one of Kiteboy’s visitors can sell stuff his audience would like on his marketplace too.TinyPay.me gets from 5% to 15% of every sale, depending on the percentage site owners set for their own commission (up to 35%). Everyone who lists an item on TinyPay.me can choose to donate a part of the profit, both theirs and TinyPay.me’s, to a charitable organization Related Posts guest author 1last_img read more

Police Stations To Be Equipped With HighSpeed Internet

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppKINGSTON, July 23 (JIS): Police stations are to be equipped with high-speed Internet as the Government deepens the penetration of broadband service across the island.The initiative is being undertaken through the Universal Service Fund (USF), which is financed by taxes collected from phone calls coming into the country.“For the last couple of years, the Government has built out an islandwide broadband network, connecting our schools, libraries, post offices and more recently health centres and hospitals. Now we will be doing police stations,” said Minister of State in the Ministry of Science, Technology, Energy and Mining, Hon. Julian Robinson.The State Minister, who was speaking to JIS News at the third annual Edufocal Excellence Awards ceremony held at the Jamaica Pegasus Hotel in New Kingston on July 22, said the purpose of this initiative is to give rise to a more developed society.“This was done as part of our commitment to ensuring that everyone, everywhere, has access to computer technology and the Internet. All of this is building a digital society for transformation and development,” he said.The Edufocal Excellence Awards was held to honour the top 10 Grade Six Achievement Test (GSAT) and Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC) students, who accessed the fun and interactive online Edufocal learning platform to prepare for their examinations.The students selection were based on “time spent on the platform and how well they did,” said Chief Executive Officer of Edufocal Limited, Gordon Swaby. Some of the GSAT awardees were also a part of the Government’s Tablets in School pilot project.According to the Minister of State, “we distributed just under 25,000 tablets to 38 schools and teachers. We are now working out the details to see how we can get tablets in every school in Jamaica.”Testimonials given by teachers and parents of GSAT and CSEC students praised Edufocal for its ability to produce successful students.
