first_imgThe Champions League tie between Atlético Madrid and Liverpool gave a lot to talk about. And weeks later it is still giving. One of those who most affected the issue was Jurgen Klopp. The coach of the Reds, who after the first leg at Wanda left some pearl about the style of the Cholo, said that “he does not understand his way of playing.” Kieran Trippier has come out in defense of his team’s game at Anfield, criticized for being too defensive. “We went with a plan and we did it.”“People have the perception that we are a defensive team, but I think they are getting carried away by the way we play against Liverpool. If you go there and face this team, you’re going to be knocked out 6-0. I don’t know what people expected. You see the experts complaining because we defend, but did they expect us to go and play attacking football, especially with Liverpool playing the way they are at the moment? “, he stated in Mirror. Trippier “We knew they would explode due to the amount of pressure they had applied and the amount of energy they had put into the game. We knew they would slow down. It took us over 100 minutes, but we won 3-2. People can complain as much as they want, but we thought it was necessary for that type of game. You need to go there with a plan and we did it. We had to defend, but the most important thing is that we got the victory “, sentenced the English defender. In the end, the criticism has taken a turn and the blame for the elimination of Liverpool from the Champions League lies with Klopp for not having known how to stand up to Atlético del Cholo.

first_imgSYDNEY, Australia (CMC):Twenty20 star Carlos Brathwaite has joined reigning champions Sydney Thunder for the remainder of the Big Bash League campaign, replacing West Indies teammate Andre Russell, who has been ruled out with a hamstring injury.The 28-year-old Barbadian, who was vacationing overseas recently, is expected to link up with the franchise shortly, but there was no confirmation on if he would be ready for Sunday’s clash against Hobart Hurricanes at Blundstone Arena.”Carlos is dedicated to learning and advancing his game. With both bat and ball, he’s a very skilled T20 cricketer,” said Thunder coach Paddy Upton.”I’ve had the pleasure of working with him for a season in the IPL and he really is the highest quality individual. “He’s a top-quality cricketer and person, which ticks the two big boxes when it comes to Thunder recruiting players.”Brathwaite came to prominence during the last year’s Twenty20 World Cup in India, when he lashed sixes off the first four deliveries off seamer Ben Stokes in the last over of the final against England to propel West Indies to a dramatic win.He is a hard-hitting lower-order batsman and steady seamer, and completes his all-round game as a sharp fielder.Brathwaite is a member of both the Windies Test and one-day international sides, and also captains their T20 squad.He replaces Russell who, on Wednesday pulled up with an injured hamstring during a game against Melbourne Stars and had to be stretchered off.Thunder announced yesterday that the Jamaican would be out of action for up to six weeks, ruling him out of the remainder of the Big Bash.last_img read more

first_imgThe European Union delegation has done another great thing that the government of Liberia has failed to do. This time around, it is the collection of the country’s legends to promote her cultural heritage for future generations.The book, Legends of Liberia, previously written by Peter Pinney, was missing in action due to the county’s 14-year of civil war. But the coming of the second edition retells and brings back to life lost, unique, and classic legends of Liberia.First of all, the book is a must read that every Liberia child should get a hold of. From the first page to the last, each story provides detailed information or narration, most especially when it comes to the history of the tribe, which makes it a standout among any book that talks about legends from Liberia or about Liberia.Apart from the tribal histories (legends) being told in the book, there are other good short stories that are not so well-known. Moreover, Legends of Liberia comes with inspiring messages that pass on visions, values, feelings and memories in enjoyable and entertaining ways.Liberia Education MinisterGeorge K WernerThe book also comes at a time when almost all the legends are the point of being lost, since they are not taught in schools anymore. Against this background, it is now time that the government through the Ministry of Education starts teaching this book in our primary and secondary schools.This will be a very important step to reawaken the country’s lost and fast decaying cultures, since legends are models for a way of life and teaching of values.Legends form a fundamental part of every human culture. Cultures are built on them. And once this book starts to be taught in schools, students will start to understand and participate in the culture/s to which they belong.This can only happen when they firstly learn about the stories that culture is built around. Take this for example, religions are taught in schools because they heavily influence culture, which passes down important values and practices.This can be done with Legends of Liberia, which is particularly helpful when it comes to restoring the country’s cultures. The book will also inspire creative thinking and writing among students. The teaching of Legends of Liberia will not only prove beneficial to students of all ages, but will also bring them in contact with the cultures of the tribes of Liberia.And if Liberian legends are taught in schools, they will also increase students’ appreciation for literature and the arts by understanding their important roles in and values to society.Furthermore, once government allows this book to be used in schools, students will start to think critically about modern culture and analyzing the traces of ancient legends, their moral values and benefits.Legends of Liberia, the second edition, which is a compilation of ancient legends, are based on the cultural practices of the early peoples of Liberia, about their gods and goddess, heroes and heroines, settlers and tribal origins.According to Legends of Liberia, for example, the Mano tribe came to Liberia through Lormia who, on his way from Sudan in search of fertile land, fought and conquered many towns. He also captured slaves along the way, including the Ge, who later became Gio, who much later became the race of the Gio and Mano.And the nickname Gbezohn for modern day Grand Bassa County means ‘stagnant and odorous,’ and came as a result of people dumping trash into a small stream, which subsequently smelled like the dirt poured into it.The moral of the Gbezohn story could be dirt affects people.Moreover, each legend featured in the book has a moral message through the story that teaches the good, bad and ugly of early Liberian life.No matter what, the government should do everything possible to make this book form part of the national curriculum. Legends of Liberia makes for a very interesting topic of study.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window) – Advertisement –last_img read more

first_imgGoing into the holiday shopping season, the toy industry is in turmoil. More than 80 percent of the toys sold in U.S. stores are made in China. So a wave of product recalls involving the safety of Chinese-manufactured toys has big business running scared. ? China has promised reforms. And Mattel plans to test the safety of Chinese-made products in its own laboratories or those certified by the company. Which seems like very little, very late. ? “This situation cannot continue,” says Nancy Nord, acting chief of the Consumer Product Safety Commission. Yet it’s the government that has long expected industry to do a good job of monitoring itself. More funding is needed for the CPSC, whose staff dropped from almost 800 employees in 1974 to an all-time low now of about 400. Sen. Richard Durbin, D-Ill., found that there is just one CPSC employee responsible for testing and ensuring toy safety throughout the country. This is unacceptable, of course. Toy sales during the holiday season will be a telling gauge of how fast the industry reacts to safety concerns. ? – The Staten Island (N.Y.)

first_imgPhoto: Airservices Australia An Australian pilots group  has called for procedures that  allow air traffic controllers to be authenticated after a hoax message prompted a Virgin Australia flight to abort a landing.Australian Federal Police are investigating 15 fake air traffic control calls made in recent weeks, including a fake distress call,In the fake mayday transmission aired by national broadcaster the ABC, the hoaxer impersonated the pilot of light aircraft experiencing engine trouble.Asked to advise his situation, he said: “Engine failure passing through 4500.’’The aborted landing call late last month prompted a Virgin Australia plane flying from Queensland’s Gold Coast to Melbourne to perform a go around, climb to 3,800ft and start circling over the Victorian capital, the ABC said.Go-arounds are well practiced procedures that follow set guidelines but the worry is a bogus operator could put a plane at risk by sending it on a heading that conflicts with other traffic.The hoaxer in this case is believed to be a single individual and is capitalising on the fact air traffic controllers work on an open VHF frequency often monitored by aviation enthusiasts.Virgin Independent Pilots Association president John Lyons told AirlineRatings that pilots had no choice but to obey ATC instructions.While there was no danger in a go around, Lyons said there could be a risk if an aircraft was told to take up a heading that took the plane into unprotected territory and possible conflict with another aircraft. He said a mayday also received priority and could lead to other aircraft on the frequency being compromised.“This clown who has this transceiver seems to know enough about procedures and terminology to do dumb things,’’ he said.Lyons said he was satisfied authorities were doing everything they could to investigate the hoax.“Our concern is that they introduce procedures which enable some form of authentication in the event of a suspected hoax call,’’ he said. “I don’t know how they do that.’’A joint statement  from  air navigation provider Airservices Australia and the Australian Federal Police confirmed that the 15 incidents at Melbourne Airport and a second airport outside of Melbourne were underway. The AFP has brought in the Australian Communications and Media Authority to use it expertise and technology in locating rogue transmissions to help the investigation.“As a result of the unlawful interference with air traffic control broadcasts over several weeks, the AFP has today issued a call for public help for any information that will result in the identification and arrest of the person responsible,’’ the statement said. “There is no current threat to the safety and security of the travelling public as a result of these unlawful radio transmissions in the Melbourne area. Travellers do not need to change their plans.’’AFPO head of crime operations Chris Sheehan said Airservices and the AFP could assure that appropriate procedures were in place to ensure the safety of aviation operations in Victoria and nationally.“The AFP, Airservices, the Australian Communications and Media Authority  and the aviation industry are all committed to ensuring the safety of the travelling public and we are treating this matter extremely seriously,” Sheehan said. “These incidents are being thoroughly investigated by the AFP, with technical support from the ACMA.“The airlines have been briefed to ensure the advice has been passed on to their pilots and to ensure appropriate measures are in place.’’Airservices said at no time was safety jeopardised as a result of the calls and it was working closely with the airlines and the AFP.An Airservices  spokeswoman was not aware of procedures to authenticate air traffic controllers but said  pilots were aware of the hoaxer and were taking extra precautions with their communications.Under Australian law, the culprit behind the unauthorised transmissions faces up to 20 years in jail. Police have urged anyone with information to ring Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.Other instances of fake ATC broadcasts have occurred in Britain, including attempts in 2010 at Leeds-Bradford Airport and in Manchester, England, in 2003.In the Manchester case, the hoax calls were traced to a transmitter in Dublin.last_img read more

first_imgThere are 207 functioning Small Claims Courts in South Africa’s 384 magisterial districts, but the Department of Justice and Constitutional Development is aiming for at least one per district. The commissioners who preside over cases in Small Claims Court do so without any compensation, and Nel said that South Africa needed more men and women who had a burning passion for justice and were willing to go the extra mile, to become commissioners. Commissioners’ guidelines Raising awareness Providing access to justice Alexandra Advisory Board chairman Thomas Rikhotso said Alexandra residents were overjoyed that a Small Claims Court had been established in their area. The establishment of the first Small Claims Court in Alexandra, Johannesburg will provide its residents with a speedy, simple and accessible forum to resolve their disputes, says Deputy Justice Minister Andries Nel. Small Claims Courts were a powerful mechanism to provide access to justice, especially for the poor, Nel said. He further called on legal practitioners with at least five years’ experience to volunteer their services as commissioners at Small Claims Courts, adding that the country needed more commissioners for courts that were being established across the country. “I worked in Randburg for eight years and I know how people from Alexandra had to travel to Randburg, some of them on foot, to access a Small Claims Court,” he said. “I’m excited that today they will get these services at their doorstep.”center_img The department has set the target of establishing 60 more courts by April 2011, and has already set up 11 since April this year. The courts deal with civil disputes of up to R7 000, and no legal representatives are required or allowed to appear on behalf of the litigants. The guidelines would also be used in the training of clerks at the courts, who were the first Small Claim Court officials to interact with the public. 26 May 2010 “Usually, Small Claim Court matters are dispensed within a month or two, providing people with a simple, speedy and accessible forum that will make a huge difference in people’s lives.” “Citizens of Alexandra will now be able to turn to a Small Claims Court for a resolution to their disputes,” he said at the opening of the court in the Johannesburg township this week. Nel also launched guidelines for commissioners and clerks of Small Claims Courts. The guidelines would assist commissioners preside over matters and also ensure that there was uniformity in all the Small Claims Courts across the country. The latest court would play a major role in the lives of the residents of Alexandra and the department would embark on a campaign to popularise the usage of Small Claims Court, Nel said.

first_img8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting I have written my share of blistering articles about Microsoft over the years, but I just read this one by market research analyst Roger Kay and all I can say is, “Wow.” Kay has been around for a long time. He used to run the PC research group at IDC, and now has his own firm, called Endpoint Technologies Associates. The point is, he knows his stuff. And he knows Microsoft incredibly well. And boy did he just go ballistic in a column published on Forbes.com.The gist of his article is, Let’s stop beating around the bush and just say it – Windows 8 is a dud. So is Windows Phone 8. Everyone in the world knows this, except Microsoft. “Microsoft has reached an Orwellian impasse, in which it cannot tell the truth – even to itself,” Kay writes. “It is blinded by its own hallucinations about how the market is operating. The result is that its public pronouncements entirely lack credibility.”He cites a bunch of whoppers from Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer, including Ballmer’s assertion that Google is a “house of cards,” and his prediction that the iPhone would be a flop. Ballmer, he says, “has made a buffoon of himself,” and points to the mockery that gets heaped on Ballmer in videos like this one:  A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Related Posts Tags:#Microsoft Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… dan lyons Why Does Microsoft Still Exist?The biggest question, Kay says, is this: “What is Microsoft’s useful function now?” Basically it’s to keep charging people “monopoly rent” for using products that people keep buying only because it has become a habit. “This situation,” he writes, “is not going to last forever.”Developers are already getting frustrated by Microsoft’s lack of direction, he says. And the only way Microsoft can recover is to put someone else in charge. Ballmer, he says, “has had ample opportunity to turn the ship around and hasn’t done it.” At this point, Bill Gates “needs to step in and ask his friend of many years to step down.”Will that happen? I used to think it might. Now I’m not so sure. What do you think? And seriously, check out the whole article on Forbes.com. It’s kind of amazing.Image courtesy of Shutterstock.last_img read more
