  • Lampard: Record is for my mum

    first_img “I’m thankful to each one of them as they are the ones that put it on a plate for me sometimes, and the fans have been willing me to do it for a long time and are probably frustrated alongside me not getting there. But I’m just delighted the way the fans were at the end. That is what means everything to me. “Bobby Tambling is a great man, he hasn’t been well recently but he’s a great man and I didn’t want to overcook the celebration out of respect for him. To go and break it, I was delighted and very pleased to do it today. I’ve been here a long time. I lost my Mum a few years ago and she was my biggest support.” Chelsea’s interim boss Rafael Benitez, who has enjoyed a significantly less pleasant relationship with the club’s fans since his controversial arrival earlier this season, paid a slightly muted tribute to Lampard. The Spaniard has used him more sparingly than most managers in the 34-year-old’s career and, despite hailing his continued dedication, he stopped short of the gushing praise that will surely come his way from other quarters. “I think it’s great news for everyone,” said Benitez. “He’s a great player who has been working hard and to achieve what he has achieved is amazing. He is a great professional. I’m really pleased for him and really pleased for the team because he scored two goals and won the game.” Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert, whose side remain in the relegation fight as a result of the loss, was unhappy with referee Lee Mason’s performance. He felt both red cards handed to Ramires and Benteke were harsh but was most annoyed by the decision to show John Terry only a yellow card for a foul on Yacouba Sylla. “I don’t need to speak to the referee, you just get yourself into trouble,” he said. “I thought the whole game the referee was poor. When John Terry takes Sylla down, the full-backs are not getting back there – he’s the last man. The referee has to see that. Sylla is through. The referee should have seen that the way I saw it or the way 40,000 saw it: Sylla’s through on goal.” Press Association Lampard’s pursuit of Bobby Tambling’s mark of 202 goals for the Blues has provided a fascinating sub-plot throughout the season and he crossed the line in dramatic circumstances in the 2-1 win at Aston Villa. He first cancelled out Christian Benteke’s opener and then sealed victory in the 88th minute to all but assure Champions League football next year. The veteran midfielder was gracious after the match – singling out both his mother Pat, who died in 2008, and Tambling for special mentions as well as lauding the Chelsea faithful. “It means everything to me. It’s amazing, the support I’ve had from team-mates, and you could see that at the end,” he told Sky Sports. center_img Frank Lampard paid tribute to the man he replaced as Chelsea record goalscorer, before dedicating the landmark to his late mother.last_img read more

  • Delayed ICE Raids Set for Sunday, Dems Outraged

    first_imgICE agents are planning to arrest thousands of illegal immigrants this Sunday, following through on previously delayed raids in ten U.S. cities.In late June, President Trump put the scheduled raids on hold, as part of an effort to push lawmakers to come up with an immigration bill.Agents are targeting around two-thousand immigrants, and plan to make arrests in known “sanctuary cities,” including New York, Atlanta, Los Angeles, and San Francisco.Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi slammed Trump Thursday telling reporters at the Capitol that the administrations ‘heartless raids’ will terrorize migrant children and tear families apart.Nancy Pelosi Trump heartless raidsICE said its focus is on arresting people with criminal histories and those who already have orders of removal against them.According to reports, about three million illegal immigrants were deported under Former President Barack Obama’s administration.Many of those deported had not committed a crime other than the fact that they were here illegally.There are an estimated 11 million undocumented immigrants in the United States at this time.Related content:Trump defends mass ICE deportations set to begin Sundaylast_img read more

The island, which is 96 acres in size, is part of the Donegal Archipelago which includes Tory.It lies three miles off the mainland and is owned by Falcarragh man Mark McClafferty, who inherited the property from his late grandfather Vin Duggan.At the time the owner told Donegal Daily that he considered the asking price to be “a bit steep”.Before you call your bank manager consider the prohibitive cost of transporting building materials to the island, cautions local contractor Seamus McClafferty, who estimates it will cost between €200,000 and €250,000 to build something modest.

  • Guides to cash in on ‘avi-tourism’

    first_img6 June 2008A group of 17 students who recently graduated from the BirdLife South Africa avi-career entrepreneurial programme are set to give the local eco-tourism industry a major boost, as they head out to work as bird guides along the country’s numerous birding routes.The group, which is the first to complete the one-year birding course, will be able to take tourists along birding routes, helping them to spot and identify various species of birds along with way.Eco-tourists are flocking to South Africa to see the country’s 900 species of birds.The course was developed in the United States to create jobs and support small business owners in the eco-tourism and community development sectors.“Avi-tourism is becoming the second fastest-growing outdoor activities in the world,” said BirdLife SA guide development manager Priya Vallabh in Nelspruit this week.She said the course taught students how to open their own guide businesses in their communities or gain employment as guides on South Africa’s many birding routes.Theta accredited courseFormerly known as the bird guide development programme, the course is accredited with the Tourism and Hospitality Education and Training Authority (Theta), and is being facilitated by Sasol, BirdLife SA and Junior Achievement South Africa.It offers a basic understanding of what eco-tourism is all about and teaches various business skills such as market research, brand identity, developing and implementing a business plan and managing finances.One of the graduates, David Letsoalo, from Magoebaskloof, said that he found learning about the birds’ characteristics and behaviour the most interesting.“I am passionate about being a bird guide, my dream is to study further and expand my birding expertise to be able to take tours to different parts of the country,” he said.Letsoalo received the Eagle Award from BirdLife SA in 2007, for his exceptional bird guiding skills that were featured in the SABC 2 series Kaelo – Stories of Hope.Even though Letsoalo has seen most of the birds more times than he can remember, he always gets as excited as his audience when he spots a new species for the first time.“Bird guiding is one of the ways local communities in bird-rich areas can earn a sustainable income and help conserve the area’s natural heritage,” said Sasol corporate social investment head Pamilla Mudhray.Source: BuaNewslast_img read more

  • RIM’s Potential Blackberry 10 Licensing Partners: Few & Far Between

    first_imgTags:#A Game of Phones#Analysis#Android#mobile#RIM#Series What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … Related Posts Research In Motion has nearly finished developing its BlackBerry 10 operating system. New smartphones from the Canadian manufacturer are expected to be released at the beginning of 2013, but they may not be the only Blackberry 10 devices. According to reports, RIM is open to licensing BlackBerry 10 to other manufacturers. Such an move would have been unthinkable only two years ago, but now it seems to be a real possibility. But would any other manufacturers go along with it?Sizing up BlackBerry in the Smartphone EcosystemTo understand what companies might license BlackBerry 10, it is important to understand the dynamics of the smartphone ecosystem. Specifically, where does the operating system that runs your smartphone come from?Apple designs its iPhone and iPad and the operating system that runs it – iOS – in-house. The devices are assembled at factories in China (you may have heard of Foxconn) and shipped to destinations across the world. Historically, this was the model RIM followed. For all intents and purposes, RIM alone designed the hardware and software and managed the manufacturing of BlackBerry devices. In-house design and production used to be the standard throughout the cellphone industry. Motorola, Samsung, Nokia and Palm either made or still make their own operating systems. Yet, that approach is no longer the default. Internal production takes a wealth of resources and expertise. If a company aims for the top of the market and its OS falls flat, it can be set back several years and risk its livelihood in the process. This happened to both RIM and Nokia in recent years as they fell behind the market leaders in iOS and Android. Google and Microsoft do not follow the internal-design-and-build model. Instead, they build the operating system (Android for Google, Windows Mobile CE and, more recently, Windows Phone for Microsoft) and license it to manufacturers that wish to build their own variations. Their approaches are not identical, however. Microsoft charges a fee for a Windows Phone license, while Google provides Android to manufacturers for free (with stipulations if Google services are used). This strategy explains why Android and Windows Phone devices are available from a variety of manufacturers including LG, Sony and HTC. Microsoft has employed the same strategy in the PC market for decades. Research In Motion cannot give away BlackBerry 10 in the way that Google does Android. That avenue would essentially lead to the end of the company. It will have to employ the same strategy that Microsoft does with Windows Phone and charge manufacturers per license. Possible BlackBerry PartnersThere is one obvious company RIM could turn to manufacture BlackBerry 10 devices: Samsung.The South Korean manufacturer is the perfect candidate to build BlackBerry devices. It is the world’s largest smartphone maker and does not seem to discriminate in what it builds. Essentially, Samsung will try just about anything to see if it catches fire. Its primary revenue driver is Android and its Galaxy series smartphones. But Samsung also builds devices for Microsoft’s Windows Phone (though they do not sell particularly well) and builds its own low-end operating system called Bada. Samsung is also linked to Tizen, the bastard child of the OS that was once called MeeGo. The company will likely produce a Tizen device once that platform is ready for the market. Samsung is such an obvious choice to build BlackBerry devices that, if for some reason it declines, RIM may be in serious trouble. Few other manufacturers are poised to take on new operating systems right now. Samsung and Apple have squeezed the smartphone and tablet market so tightly (between the two, they take up about 90% of mobile hardware revenues) that almost all other manufacturers are just trying to keep their heads above water. HTC is having a down year despite critical success with its Android-based One series devices. The company does not have its own operating system, and it has made Windows Phone devices in the past. As Samsung’s little sister in the smartphone ecosystem, HTC is the next logical choice, but only if the company can put together the resources for a new product launch.The same applies to other second- and third-tier device manufacturers. Sony Ericsson has never been able to make a serious dent in the market with Android, and LG is performing much better in the waning feature-phone market than with any of its smartphones or tablets. Chinese manufacturers like ZTE and Huawei might be interested in BlackBerry 10 if the price is right. Both companies have an expanding footprint in international markets that RIM would love to reclaim. The problem is that all these manufacturers are doing just fine with Android. Android is free and manufacturers can do just about anything they want with it. The design of Windows Phone is inflexible in comparison and it costs manufacturers money to license. If RIM is to follow Microsoft’s Windows Phone plan, it will have trouble convincing these manufacturers to play its game.In addition, partnering with RIM would constitute an alliance with a competitor. RIM is not like Google and Microsoft, which do not make their own devices (overlooking Google’s Nexus and Microsoft’s Surface). RIM will build its own BlackBerry 10 smartphones and tablets, devices that will be on store shelves next to any partner’s offerings. Reaching Beyond Smartphone and TabletsOne area of potential growth for BlackBerry 10 is in devices that aren’t smartphones and tablets. BlackBerry 10 is built using a system called QNX that the company acquired in April 2010. QNX was a platform that ran many different kinds of computers, such as those found in airplanes and cars. RIM will definitely be looking to non-traditional partners to license BlackBerry 10. Looking beyond the smartphone could be RIM’s best bet. At the company’s BlackBerry Jam in Orlando in May, CEO Thorsten Heins showed off a car that had BlackBerry 10 integrated into almost every aspect of its computing system. RIM could also push its new operating system into other infrastructure-based industries such as healthcare and utilities (electric and water systems, for instance). All this boils down to one simple fact: If BlackBerry 10 fails, so does RIM. We will know by this time next year if any strategy RIM pursues pays off or if it’s time to write the obituary of a once-great technology company.  dan rowinskicenter_img Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement The Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technologylast_img read more

  • Rebecca Zahaus former boyfriend Jonah Shacknai takes the stand

The boy died five days later.The attorney for the plaintiffs, Keith Greer, alleged that Adam Shacknai delivered four blows to the head of Zahau, rendering her partially or fully unconscious. Greer also alleged that the defendant sexually assaulted Zahau, tied her hands and feet, put a noose around her neck and threw her body off a second-story balcony.Greer said the plaintiffs should be awarded unspecified monetary damages for loss of companionship and emotional support.Adam Shacknai’s attorney, Dan Webb, told the jury that there was no evidence that his client — who has lived and worked in Memphis for 30 years — had anything to do with Zahau’s death. Adam Shacknai said Zahau encouraged him to come to San Diego to support his brother at his time of need.The attorney said four law enforcement agencies investigated Zahau’s death for two months and determined that she committed suicide.
