Fueled by passion and history, Kerr hunts Gor continental success

first_imgIt is that piece of history and passion for success that is pushing Gor Mahia head coach Dylan Kerr as he prepares his team to begin their continental journey on Saturday afternoon with a preliminary round tie against Equatorial Guinea side Leones Vegetarianos.“I know the history of Kenyan teams not qualifying for group stages of continental football and that gives me a bit more incentive to ensure that this team breaks that run. I am also hoping that it gives players incentive as well to prove that we are good enough,” Kerr told Capital Sport.He added; “It’s upon the players to create history; nobody remembers number two or number three. You have to be number one to be remembered. The players should take this chance now and create history.”Gor Mahia defender Wellington Ochieng blasts the ball into the net as teammate Ernest Wendo tries to defend during a training session at the Camp Toyoyo Ground. PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluGor have always had their journey end in the first round but with the CAF continental matches re-aligned beginning last season, K’Ogalo can have a shot at the group stages in two different ways.First, they can take the direct route into the Champions League group stage by winning the preliminary and first round home and away matches. If they get past Vegetarianos, they will meet the winner between their 1987 opponents Esperance or ASAC Concorde of the Comoros.A loss in this round will give them a second shot at continental football group stages, but it will be in the second tier Confederations Cup. They will head into a play off with 16 other teams who have progressed from the first two rounds of the second tier tourney.“We know it’s tough but that is our target and we will work to achieve it. The spirit of the players in training has been fantastic this week. The energy and effort the players have put in is brilliant. However, sometimes the nerves and excitement of the game might work against us but I will speak to them to ensure they relax and enjoy the occasion,” added the coach.The tactician expects a tough duel against Vegetarianos, though he says it has proved difficult to do any scouting on them as no information is available about the team that won the Equatorial Guinean league for the first time ever in 2017.“I like to prepare for a game with some information on the opposition but now we can’t find anything. But that in a way it is a good thing because I can concentrate on us and ensuring we are strong enough,” he noted.Gor Mahia head coach Dylan Kerr during a training session at the Camp Toyoyo Ground. PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluKerr who led Gor to the league title with a 19- point cushion in his first season in charge last year hopes to make even more history, but concedes he is under immense pressure to deliver.“The pressure is on me because did very well last year. To be honest teams need time to gel and especially when you have new players. But I am happy that we are doing well and the new players have worked so hard they are pushing the older players to work harder,” the coach further notes.K’Ogalo has already started their season hitting the right notes; they beat arch rivals AFC Leopards 1-0 in the season opening Super Cup and kicked off their league defence with a flattering 4-0 maul of Nakumatt last weekend.The tactician hopes they can keep the form running in Machakos against Vegetarianos and his skipper Harun Shakava has promised to lead the players from the front.“It is a tough level of football but we are ready for it. We want to make history and make it into the group stages so hopefully we start with a win at home. I urge the fans to turn out in large numbers and support us,” Shakava stated.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Gor Mahia head coach Dylan Kerr gives a thumbs up during the KPL Super Cup on January 28, 2017.

Wenger is killing the club and something needs to change – Arsenal fan opinion

first_img1 Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger Young Guns blogger Jamie Sanderson has not enjoyed watching Arsenal lately. Here, he explains what needs to happen for success on the pitch to become a regular occurence again…It’s been another rough seven days for Arsene Wenger at Arsenal. The Frenchman is battle scarred and on the ropes – it doesn’t seem like he’s going to be fighting back.For so long he had all the answers as he managed the club through a new stadium while keeping us competitive at the top level, but there are now more questions than answers.After the defeat to Swansea, you look to Wenger on the touchline for a reaction. Anger, frustration, determination – none of that was on show.He looked like a man who had given up.There’s talk among the coaching staff that Wenger has lost his way and is now managing Arsenal like a dictator. It’s not healthy.I love Wenger’s ideals, morals and philosophy, but it’s now killing the club. This relationship has gone sour and something needs to change.No doubt Arsenal will bounce back and win games this season because there are plenty of teams worse off than us, but we’ll never win the league again with Wenger in charge.And that’s the problem. Results can paper over cracks, but those cracks will ultimately stop Arsenal from reaching the top again.It feels like now is the perfect time for a change.Agree or disagree with Jamie? We want to hear YOUR view… comment below.last_img read more

SACRAMENTO – California scored a major victory Wednesday in its bid to be a player in the fight against global warming, as a federal judge ruled that the state has the authority to regulate greenhouse-gas emissions from cars. The ruling by U.S. District Court Judge Anthony Ishii in Fresno was another in a series of losses this year for automakers, who have sought to block California’s clean-car mandates from taking effect here and in 16 other states that together make up nearly half of the U.S. population. The win for environmentalists is tempered by the federal Environmental Protection Agency, however, which has yet to grant California’s two-year-old request for a waiver, the last roadblock to the new rules.last_img read more

It’s inevitable that Maurizio Sarri will be next Chelsea manager, talkSPORT told

first_img The average first-team salaries at every Premier League club in 2019 Tottenham predicted XI to face Brighton with Mourinho expected to make big changes Conte was reportedly sacked by Chelsea on Thursday The Italian’s departure will pave the way for Sarri to be appointed Chelsea’s new coach, with talks between the Blues and Napoli for the transfer of the Serie A club’s former manager said to be finalised.Despite chasing Sarri for the entire summer, and Conte’s sacking being the worst kept secret in recent footballing memory, Chelsea still had their currently boss take training for the first week of pre-season.Conte has been at work over the past week, coaching star players such as Cesc Fabregas, Marcos Alonso and Alvaro Morata, who all returned to Cobham at the earliest date having not featured at the World Cup. Sarri is expected to be confirmed as Chelsea’s next manager silverware gameday cracker Liverpool news live: Klopp reveals when Minamino will play and issues injury update latest revealed 2 How Arsenal could line up in Arteta’s first official game in charge – Ozil return?

NEW ERA ALTERED “But all this other haggling… they’ve just got to try and sort it out as quietly and quickly and cleanly as they possibly can – for both parties really.“It’s not good for the club going forward, but it’s also not good for Conte because future employers will look at that and say: ‘is he going to do that if anything goes pair shaped for us?’“So for both sides’ sake it’s important they sit down and thrash this out and get a compromise and as fair a deal as possible.” smart causal predicted Most read in Premier League England’s most successful clubs of the past decade, according to trophies won Former Chelsea goalkeeper Mark Bosnich has compared the Blues’ standoff with manager Antonio Conte to ‘a game of chicken’, also revealing it is ‘inevitable’ Maurizio Sarri will be named the Stamford Bridge club’s new boss.Conte was reportedly sacked by Chelsea on Thursday, though there has been no comment or official statement from the west Londoners regarding their managerial situation.last_img read more

Soderberg, Poly try to reach high note

first_img Soderberg, who has a 3.8 GPA, doesn’t have any aspirations of having a musical career. Right now, it’s simply a means of escape. On Monday, the junior needed to escape after Poly fell hard to Mission Viejo, 9-6, and Mater Dei, 10-6, at the North Orange County Tournament to bring its record to 7-6 overall. Once again, the Jackrabbits face a giant of an opponent in Wilson today at 4 p.m. at Belmont Plaza Pool. Wilson’s Matt Sagehorn and Anthony Artukovich are out of the Bruins linuep while playing with the U.S. Junior National Team at the Junior Worlds in Argentina. “It’s easier to get settled down after games,” said Soderberg, who has been playing the instrument ever since first grade. “I practice every day.” He enjoys playing for elderly and ill patients in nursing homes. Every once in a while his piano teacher assembles a group of artists to entertain those less fortunate. Often times, David Soderberg sits at his piano inside his parents’ Long Beach home and plays music composed by Beethoven and Bach. He is also often heard playing “Piano Man” by Billy Joel. That’s how Poly High’s water polo star relaxes. center_img But Soderberg, at 5-foot-9 and 160 pounds, knows full well that it’s going to take an impressive performance by himself and his teammates to defeat the defending Moore League and CIF Southern Section Division I champs, who have an army of players capable of putting huge numbers on the scoreboard. Soderberg, who served mostly as a defensive specialist while competing for the Long Beach Shore and Golden West water polo clubs, is the Jackrabbits’ primary go-to guy in the post this season. The Swedish-born player replaced Kazu Miyahara in Poly’s lineup. Miyahara was lightning-quick in the pool and could rack up goals like points on a pinball machine last year. In 13 games this year, Soderberg has carried much of Poly’s offense from his 2-meter position, tallying 60 goals on a team that only has one other player with significant water polo experience prior to high school. “He has good strength. That helps him a lot,” said David’s father Lars about how his son has been able to excel against players who normally outweigh him by 20 pounds. “It’s a good opportunity to show everyone how good our team is,” said Soderberg about today’s game. “We’ve become more multidimensional. “My role is to be the team leader,” Soderberg added. “If anyone is going to have to step up, it has to be me. (The Bruins) are still good without their two big offensive players. If we can stay in the right mindset, be confident and pull off some really big plays, we can upset them.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Gmail Users Get Real-Time Updates in their Email Messages

first_imgWhy Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Related Posts Image: Dan McGeeThis sort of interactivity is sure to be an email marketer’s dream as it allows for whole new levels of user engagement with the brand. Instead of simply dismissing the email with a click of the “delete” button, recipients might find themselves actually taking the time to read through what were once thought of as “throwaway” messages. In this information-overloaded era where out-of-control inboxes have many email users declaring email bankruptcy, doing mass deletes, and filtering all non-personal email to other folders, any extra incentive to not delete or ignore an email is a feature which marketers are sure to take notice of. But a little in-email interactivity may only be scratching the surface of what this enhanced content makes possible. What could come next? Perhaps you’ll soon be able to make purchases without ever leaving the confines of your inbox? As McGee writes in his post – wait until Amazon gets on board with that idea – our wallets are sure to take a beating! Gmail user Dan McGee writes that he’sfound a new feature in his Gmail that places small favicons next to certain email messages in the inbox view. The icons have appeared next to emails sent from commercial services like Netflix and make those messages stand out when users quickly scan a crowded inbox. This new feature is not just a simple productivity enhancement or advertisement. The icons are there to indicate which messages include “enhanced content” – real-time updates within the body of the email messages, from companies sending the emails. Google Explains “Enhanced Email”Apparently this feature has been in the works for some time, at least according to the timestamp on the Google Help explanation about “enhanced content,” which shows its last update was in July of this year. The explanation reads:If you’re subscribed to receive email from certain senders, the messages you receive from them will be enhanced with an interactive gadget that has up-to-date content from their website (you’ll also see an icon in your inbox identifying these messages).For example, if you receive a Pregnancy Bulletin newsletter from Babycenter, you’ll be able to view up-to-date content, including the baby name of the day, and browse though the current top 100 baby names within the message. Aside from the convenience of being able to interact with certain websites from inside Gmail, the branded content will help identify that your messages are legitimate and not spoofed (we’ll only show branded content when the sender authenticates their mail). We’re currently testing this with a small number of senders and will decide whether to make it widely available based on user and partner feedback.A Marketer’s DreamReal-time content updates within Gmail messages sound like a great idea as long as it doesn’t slow down the loading of the message, replying, forwarding and the like. Just imagine the possibilities! In the enhanced Netflix emails, for example, you not only view your recent recommendations – you can actually add them to your queue right from within the message itself. sarah perez Tags:#Google#news#NYT#Real-Time Web#web Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Marketlast_img read more

Jezebel Violates Standard Codes Of Journalism Ethics By Harassing Minors

first_imgLast week Jezebel set out to shame some high school students for the stupid, offensive things they wrote as minors on their Twitter accounts while the president was being re-elected. But in doing so, the site itself crossed the line of appropriate behavior. At this point no one is surprised when Gawker Media violates standard journalism practices. But Jezebel’s piece about racist high schoolers, with its journalist-sanctioned public shaming of kids, is so out of line it’d be comical if it wasn’t so downright depressing.Titled “Racist Teens Forced to Answer for Tweets about the ‘Nigger’ President,” the piece even lists the high schools of the offending teens and their extracurricular activities. As a rule, journalists writing for traditional newspapers never print the name of a minor when that minor is accused of a crime. On the Internet, however, stupid things minors say is fair game, apparently.Playing By Different Rules?GigaOm writer Mathew Ingram, in his piece about the resulting controversy, reached out to the Jezebel writer, who happens to be the co-founder of the site. She argued that because the minor’s names were already out there, it is okay to use them. (Jezebel did not blur the names, or block them out. Jezebel ran the entire name and the schools the minors attend.)“We actually did not ‘out’ the identities of these tweeters — they did, through their public Twitter accounts and Facebook profiles,” wrote Tracie Egan Morrissey to Ingram, in defense of the post. “They used their real names, listed their schools and their locations, and thus broadcasted these details to the entire world by virtue of putting them on the Internet.”This is troublesome on a variety of levels, but the majority of people in the digital press world feel Morrisey’s way of thinking is legitimate. I spent Friday debating with two writers from Buzzfeed about this. They all echoed Morrisey’s statement. (Which is typical for writers at digital outlets, so why I was surprised, I don’t know …) No, Sorry, It’s Still Wrong To Name MinorsBut here is why Morrisey and her ilk are simply, unquestionably wrong.When a minor commits a crime in the real world, the cops know who the kid is, as do the neighbors and everyone in the community. The journalist covering the crime knows the kid’s name, and if anyone wanted to, they could find out the minor’s name just by pulling up the public police report.But why doesn’t the journalist use the minor’s name in the press, if it is such common knowledge, and publicly accessible to whoever wants it?I reached out to Lou Carlozo, a  father of two and longtime newspaper reporter who works at Reuters now but previously spent 15 years at the Chicago Tribune and before that was a police reporter for the Philadelphia Inquirer.His answer was simple. Minors are not named because journalists have a duty to protect them from harm of coverage. “There is a big difference between the dumb things that kids do in the course of growing up and the harmful, damaging crimes a minor might commit that are a matter of public record,” Carlozo said in a brief phone interview. “As a police reporter and later an editor, I always decided to name juveniles in a story on a case-by-case basis.”Carlozo would only publish the name of the minor if the juvenile had been convicted, but not every time because “you have to ask yourself about relevant details, such as the minor’s mental state at the time,” he said.Carlozo concedes that “these rules were written before the Internet,” but says that in the case of Jezebel outing the minors: “Just because the kids’ names are out there, journalists shouldn’t necessarily fall in line and release their names too.”  Remember, juveniles who have committed a crime are in the public record as well, but journalists choose to not print that information. Carlozo summed it up by saying, “The system has the obligation to protect these kids.”As Kashmir Hill pointed out in her Forbes blog post about the controversy, Morrissey had no intention of protecting the children. In fact, Morrissey was actively, “gleefully,” trying to harm her subjects. “[T]he tone of the piece is such that it’s apparent the writer wanted to shame and punish them for broadcasting their ugly, offensive messages,” Hill writes.  Morrissey, as a journalist far removed from these juveniles lives, wanted to teach them a lesson. Not keen to leave that job to the parents, teachers and coaches, Morrissey has now forever linked those names with racist epithets for the rest of their lives — old school journalism ethics be damned. Photo courtesy of Shutterstock.
