Bronze medal delight for England’s senior women

first_img4 Sep 2013 Bronze medal delight for England’s senior women England beat the Netherlands 4-1 today to win the bronze medal at the European senior ladies’ team championship at Bled, Slovenia. The team shrugged off the disappointment of their semi-final defeat with an excellent performance and they dominated the bronze-medal play-off. “They were magnificent and they are really chuffed,” said team captain Pat West. “They came out fighting and pretty much led from the front all the way.” By the time the first three groups had passed through the 14th with England three up in each, the writing was on the wall. And, although one singles match was lost, the medal was comfortably secured. The cahnmpionship was won by Ireland, who beat Italy in the final.

They will play the Netherlands tomorrow for the bronze medal, while Ireland and Italy battle it out for the gold at Bled, Slovenia. “Obviously it’s disappointing, but we are just going to have to get up and win the bronze,” said team captain Pat West. “There’s all to play for.” English senior stroke play champion Sue Dye won her match and senior amateur champion Janet Melville halved – while the three other games ended in Italy’s favour, but agonisingly close. “We lost three on the 18th, but there was some fantastic golf played,” said Pat. “It was a very high standard match on both sides.” The foursomes pairing of Caroline Berry and Amanda Mayne were one down playing the last and their opponents hung on to their advantage. Exactly the same fate befell Chris Quinn in the top singles, while Cath Rawthore, who was all square on the tee, lost the hole when her opponent slotted in a 10-footer.

Proposed $40 million settlement set for players

first_imgEd O’Bannon, a former UCLA basketball player, was the driving force behind filing the initial lawsuit. (Isaac Brekken/AP Photo/File)A $40 million settlement has been completed that will pay college football and basketball players dating to 2003 for the use of their likenesses in NCAA-branded videogames.The payouts could go to more than 100,000 athletes, including some current players, who were either on college rosters or had their images used in videogames made by Electronic Arts featuring college teams. Lawyers for the plaintiffs say it would be the first time college athletes will be paid for the commercial use of their images.Depending on how many athletes apply for the settlement, the payments could range from as little as $48 for each year an athlete was on a roster to $951 for each year the image of an athlete was used in a videogame.“We’re incredibly pleased with the results of this settlement and the opportunity to right a huge wrong enacted by the NCAA and EA against these players and their rights of publicity,” said Steve Berman, one of the lead attorneys in the case. “We’ve fought against intense legal hurdles since filing this case in 2009 and to see this case come to fruition is a certain victory.”The settlement is with Electronic Arts and Collegiate Licensing Co., which licenses and markets college sports, and does not include the NCAA. The case against the NCAA is scheduled for trial early next year.Plaintiffs in the case, which dates to 2009, contend the NCAA conspired with Electronic Arts and Collegiate Licensing Co. to illegally use their images in videogames.U.S. District Judge Claudia Wilken still must approve the proposed settlement, which comes on the eve of a major antitrust trial against the NCAA that could reshape the way college sports operate. That case, featuring former UCLA basketball star Ed O’Bannon and others as lead plaintiffs, goes to trial June 9 in Oakland, California.According to documents filed with the court late Friday, attorneys for O’Bannon and 20 other plaintiffs say they have already run up legal fees exceeding $30 million and expenses of more than $4 million in pressing their case. They are seeking an injunction that would stop the NCAA from enforcing rules that prohibit athletes from profiting from their play in college.O’Bannon, who led UCLA to a national title in 1995, is also part of the group settling with EA Sports and Collegiate Licensing Co. Also covered by the settlement are suits brought by former Arizona State quarterback Sam Keller, former West Virginia football player Shawne Alston and former Rutgers player Ryan Hart.According to the filing, a pool of money will be available to players after attorneys take 33 percent of the proposed settlement and up to $2.5 million in expenses. Named plaintiffs like O’Bannon and Keller will receive $15,000, while others who joined the suit later would get $2,500 or $5,000.The majority of the money, however, will go to athletes who file for claims, a group that attorneys say could contain between 140,000 and 200,000 players who were on football and basketball rosters from 2003 on. The final payouts will depend on how many of those athletes file claims in the class-action case.EA Sports announced last year it would stop making the long-running NCAA football videogame series because of the litigation and other issues in securing licensing rights.last_img read more

Pols need to let Chick do her work

first_img 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! CREDIT goes to the city’s elected officials for ponying up the cash for City Controller Laura Chick to audit the city’s vast and varied anti-gang efforts. Now they need to back off and let her do it in her own way, and in her own time. Chick’s analysis of the scope and effectiveness of the existing programs is absolutely essential to the city’s efforts to embark on a comprehensive anti-gang strategy that actually works. And while everyone is eager to get going, rushing an audit would start the effort off in a bad way. Chick’s office has proved itself as a competent analyst of the city’s workings. The council must trust her to do a fair accounting and not try to micromanage her audit.last_img read more

Mobile Centers Of Excellence: A Stupid Name For A Smart Enterprise IT Idea

first_imgMany of the world’s biggest companies have only a couple of people in their entire IT department dedicated to mobile. This skeleton crew is responsible for building and maintainin the company’s mobile apps, devising strategies and solutions, handling employee issues around Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policies and distributing software (apps) that coworkers need to do their jobs. As you might imagine, these people are often woefully overworked, not equipped to handle the stacks of problems they face. They are in this situation because the geniuses in the executive suite believe that the company needs to “do mobile” – but because they don’t really understand the value, they’re unwilling to invest more than the absolute minimum amount of resources.This scenario is a reality in many non-tech, Fortune 500 types of companies. They know they have to go mobile but have no idea what that really mean.Research firm IDC has a better idea than the classic “band-aid on a shotgun wound” approach to new IT solutions for large enterprises: Mobile Centers of Excellence.What Is A Mobile Center Of Excellence?According to the IDC whitepaper, sponsored by Netbiscuits, A Mobile Center of Excellence (mCoE) offers a framework for enterprises to organize, manage and distribute their mobile enterprise solutions and initiatives. They can help develop and distribute internal mobile apps – need a CRM app or something to help the accounting department? Ask the mCoE – as well as external apps for customers and clients. An mCoE would help the IT department with security and BYOD issues, help implement infrastructure and cloud solutions for apps and generally serve as the nerve center for everything mobile in the enterprise. IDC thinks enterprises could deploy four different kinds of mCoE:Best Practice Centers.IT-Focused.Federated (integrated with business units and IT).Dedicated Mobility Business Units.The chart below outlines the characteristics of each type: Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … Tags:#enterprise#Mobile Ecosystem Related Posts What’s The Real Value Of An mCoE?It is very easy for a research and consulting firm to write a white paper claiming, “Hey, you should have a Mobile Center of Excellence.” Most likely, if you call IDC for consulting help on how to set up an mCoE, it would be happy to charge you hefty fees for its advice. Everybody is selling something, and it shouldn’t be a surprise that the mCoE whitepaper was sponsored by a mobile platform company. The name itself is a red flag. Imagine a new IT buyer coming to a new company, turning to the person next to him and asking, “Where is the Mobility Center of Excellence?” He’d get laughed out of the room. center_img The Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technology Really though, what the mCoE idea boils down to is that every big company needs a group of knowledgeable people that have the requisite skills and resources to handle mobile solutions quickly and efficiently. These people need to have power to make decisions, well-defined jobs that give them autonomy they need get things done. Enabling a group within your IT infrastructure to handle everything mobile problems could actually create competitive advantage for many companies.  Whether you call it a Mobile Center of Excellence or just create a de facto sub-group within your organization that takes the lead in mobile practices isn’t the point. The point is that enterprises can better manage their mobile priorities by assigning the task to a particular unit empowered to drive solutions for the entire company.Images courtesy of Shutterstock. dan rowinski Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagementlast_img read more

Horn stuns Pacquiao for unanimous decision win

first_imgJeff Horn of Australia celebrates after beating Manny Pacquiao of the Philippines during their WBO World Welterweight title fight in Brisbane, Australia, Sunday. July 2, 2017. (AP Photo/Tertius Pickard)First published, 12:58 p.m., July 2, 2017BRISBANE, Australia — Manny Pacquiao was taken to uncharted territory by Jeff Horn and did not find the way out.ADVERTISEMENT Racela praises Beermen’s character: Hard to beat a team like them Head-butt cutsPacquiao sustained two bloody head cuts on the left, through a head-butt, in the sixth round and on the right, through a punch, in the seventh round.Actually, Pacquiao had Horn wobbly and on the run in the ninth, his best round, but failed to finish off the former schoolteacher who fought like a street brawler.The fighting senator paid the price as the unbeaten Horn, who also sustained cuts and bruises, got his second wind and withstood Pacquiao’s late flurries to rise to 17-0-1 with 11 knockouts.With the big shocker, the 38-year-old Pacquiao is forced to rethink his options. He has dropped four of his last nine bouts and is now 56-7-2 with 38 knockouts.ADVERTISEMENT MOST READ China furious as Trump signs bills in support of Hong Kong Robredo: True leaders perform well despite having ‘uninspiring’ boss PLAY LIST 02:49Robredo: True leaders perform well despite having ‘uninspiring’ boss02:42PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games01:44Philippines marks anniversary of massacre with calls for justice01:19Fire erupts in Barangay Tatalon in Quezon City01:07Trump talks impeachment while meeting NCAA athletes02:49World-class track facilities installed at NCC for SEA Games Lacson: SEA Games fund put in foundation like ‘Napoles case’ View comments Bullied and roughed up by the Australian toughie in the early rounds, Pacquiao yielded his World Boxing Organization welterweight crown by unanimous decision, 117-111, and 115-113 twice, in their “Battle of Brisbane” at Suncorp Stadium here.Though the score did not reflect the true nature of the bloody Sunday bout, Pacquiao graciously accepted the defeat that dampened his ring career once again.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSSEA Games: Biñan football stadium stands out in preparedness, completionSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSWin or don’t eat: the Philippines’ poverty-driven, world-beating pool stars“That’s the decision of the judges, I respect that,” Pacquiao said, as he thanked his fans and countrymen for watching Australia’s biggest boxing spectacle, luring a record 51,052 people of all creed and color.READ: Horn trainer promises ‘bloody Sunday’ What ‘missteps’?

I was feinting a lot, trying to upset his rhythm and I think that was working throughout the majority of that fight,” Horn said.Pacquiao did manage to land some left jabs in the opening rounds to take the early points, but Horn refused to back away and his brawling tactics paid dividends through the middle stages.“He was quick when he put combinations together but I felt controlling the gap made it easier to see the punches coming,” Horn said. “The size difference helped, too.”Pacquiao, bleeding profusely from cuts high above both eyes, launched a savage counterattack in the ninth round and appeared to have Horn in trouble with some massive blows that left the Australian staggering.“The ref came over (at the end of the round) and said, ‘Show me something or I’ll stop the fight’,” Horn said.“I thought, ‘Hang on, hold your horses, I’m not that bad, I can keep going for sure.’”All about heartHorn recovered and came out strongly in the 10th. “That was just my heart that kept me going,” he said.“He got me with a couple of good shots and I did go backwards more in that round than in any other round in the fight, but I still felt good,” he said. “But I came back in the 10th, 11th and 12th.” LOOK: Jane De Leon meets fellow ‘Darna’ Marian Rivera Another vape smoker nabbed in Lucena Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

It was a close decision and I’m sure he’ll want to come back and prove himself,” Horn said.Top Rank promoter Bob Arum said there was a clause for a rematch, but he’d give it time before talking to Pacquiao about it.“I know Jeff would welcome the rematch, but I don’t know Manny’s future position,” Arum said. “Is he going to stay in politics and not continue in boxing? I don’t know, and he doesn’t know now — it’s unfair to ask him now.”Pacquiao’s camp had talked about a rematch with Mayweather if he got past Horn, hoping to avenge his loss on points in the 2015 megafight. That seems to be a distant chance now. Pacquiao was defending the WBO title he won on points against Jessie Vargas last November. —With reports from AP, AFP /atmRELATED VIDEO Reminded of the rematch clause in the ringside interview, Pacquiao replied: “Rematch, that’s fine. Absolutely, I’d love that.”Still being stitched up, Pacquiao failed to appear in the postfight conference.Horn, his once cherubic face covered with cuts, welts and bruises, did appear before reporters, along with his chief trainer Glenn Rushton.READ: NBA players, US celebrities upset over Horn win, say Pacquiao ‘robbed’‘I felt lucky’Following Pacquiao’s lead, Horn expressed willingness to tangle again with the man from whom he snatched the crown.“Amazing, that’s how I feel,” Horn said. “I felt lucky, throwing a lot of punches and throwing him off rhythm.”Exploiting his advantage in height (7.62 cm/3 inches), reach (5.08 cm/2 inches), and weight (4 kilograms/8.8 lbs), the 29-year-old took the fight to Pacquiao as soon as the bell rang.As usual, Pacquiao opted to lean on the ropes to test Horn’s power and then smiled as if to show that he could take the punches.But Horn, who bulked up by about 4 kg overnight after coming in at 66.7 kg in the weigh-in Saturday, won’t be deceived and continued to put the pressure on Pacquiao, who checked in at 66.2.last_img read more
