  • Ireland ceases McCarthy and replaces Stephen Kenny

    first_imgThe Irish Football Federation has announced that this Saturday ends the second period of Mick McCarthy as coach and he will be immediately replaced by Stephen Kenny.The ex-defense of Ireland McCarthy, 61, took office in November 2018 and was ready to take them to the March Euro Cup qualifying playoffs before the coronavirus pandemic spread.The FAI has moved the transition forward. Kenny was due to replace McCarthy after the Euro Cup but with the playoffs and tournament delayed a year, the cessation has been brought forward. “The Irish Football Association announces that Mick McCarthy should be replaced as national team coach by Stephen Kenny with immediate effect. The substitution has been in agreement with both men in light of the delay in the European Championship playoffs caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, “they say.McCarthy’s contract expired on July 31, after Euro 2020, now rescheduled for 2021. “This move gives Stephen Kenny time to plan the qualifying playoffs against Slovakia,” according to the statement.Kenny, 48, arrives after being the Under-21 coach of Ireland. McCarthy’s last game in charge was a 1-1 draw with Denmark in Dublin in November, in the match in which they failed to qualify automatically for the Euro Cup.last_img read more

  • Mills Jones Promised 25K Votes in Montserrado District #10

    first_imgMOVEE’s standard bearer Dr. J. Mills JonesFirst time voters to rally support for presidential bidThe headquarters of the Movement for Economic Empowerment (MOVEE) was a scene of jubilation when more than 1,175 persons described as ‘first-time voters’ promised to vote for Dr. J. Mills Jones on October 10. It is becoming clear that if the promises truly translate into votes for Dr. Jones, Senator George Weah of the Coalition for Democratic Change and the governing Unity Party’s standard bearer Joseph Boakai are expected to meet up with a stiff challenge in what is considered their stronghold in Montserrado County. The ‘first-time voters,’ who said they never received any financial assistance from Dr. Jones, told him that his immense contribution to ordinary Liberians, particularly business people, has transformed their lives.Emmanuel Dennis said District #10 has 48,000 registered voters and out of that number, 25,000 will vote for Jones. “We can assure Hon. Mills Jones that we will carry him from door to door to run his campaign — a Jehovah Witness campaign — to see him become the next president of Liberia.” Dennis assured Dr. Jones that they are willing to move the party forward and will campaign vigorously to see him become the next president of Liberia. “We are wholeheartedly willing to work with you and want to say, God first, Dr. Jones, second, will be our president. Heaven knows that you have done tremendous work for us,” said Dennis.The party’s national chairman, Dee-Maxwell Kemayah, on behalf of the MOVEE standard bearer, lauded the group for the wise decision to choose MOVEE as a winning party. Chairman Kemayah said the party will continue to advocate uplifting ordinary Liberians. “On behalf of our standard bearer Dr. Jones, we express our deepest appreciation for the decision you made in reaching out to the party on your own free will to support the presidential bid of Dr. Jones and to campaign for him in your district to ensure that you deliver not less than 25,000 votes,” he said.Kemayah told the ‘first-time voters’ that MOVEE is indeed winning the October presidential and representative elections “with no qualms,” adding, “Dr. Jones has a vision for Liberia and wants to see a new Liberia where education will be given priority, where the youth or children can have access to better facilities, as it relates to education.“He wants to see a new Liberia under his leadership where in the educational sector from the nursery to degree level, the requisite infrastructure, equipment and instructional education staff can be in place so that any child can have pleasure in attending school in Liberia.“We want to modernize our education system; it is no secret that the system was described as a mess and we maintain in MOVEE that describing it as a mess is not just enough, but we want to go beyond by fixing our educational sector.”Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

  • Every Manchester United player Jose Mourinho has criticised this season REVEALED

    first_imgJose Mourinho hit out at Luke Shaw after the Manchester United defender was substituted after just eight minutes of the Red Devils’ 1-1 draw against Swansea.The England left-back went down with an injury, and required treatment before being taken off and replaced by Antonio Valencia.Mourinho did not seem convinced Shaw needed to leave the game, saying he was expecting to find ‘a very big injury’ to explain the 21-year-old’s early exit.The Portuguese said: “Luke Shaw must be a big injury, because to leave the pitch after 10 minutes I am expecting a very big injury.”This is not the first time Mourinho has hit out at Shaw this season, and, in fact, many of the United squad have been criticised by their manager.talkSPORT have taken a look back at the season, and reveal every player Mourinho has criticised during the campaign. You can see the results by clicking the right arrow, above… Luke Shaw – click the right arrow to see every other player criticised by Mourinho – As well as being the target of Jose Mourinho’s ire on Sunday, for leaving the draw with Swansea early with an injury, Shaw has previously been on the wrong side of the Portuguese. He was first criticised following United’s 3-1 defeat at Watford in September, having been blamed for the Hornets’ second goal. A few months later, Mourinho threw Shaw’s Old Trafford future in doubt, by claiming the full-back’s commitment, focus and ambition is a ‘long way behind’ that of his team-mates. Henrikh Mkhitaryan – Having been brought to Old Trafford over the summer, it was a surprise Mkhitaryan was never getting in Mourinho’s early line ups. However, it became clear the Portuguese did not rate him following a 2-1 defeat to Fenerbahce. Mourinho said: “I’m not thinking about sending him off, but he has to do more — it’s as simple as that.” After his slow start to life, Mkhitaryan has started to establish himself at Old Trafford, and there are hopes he will be a key player next season having had a year to settle in England. Marcus Rashford – Having played second-fiddle to Zlatan Ibrahimovic for much of the season, Rashford has impressed in his few chances as United’s centre-forward. However, after the 0-0 draw with West Brom, Mourinho hit out at the young England striker. He was marked out the game by Gareth McAuley, and hardly tested Ben Foster in the Baggies’ goal, and Mourinho told him after the game to improve. Having not scored since September up to that point, Rashford has learned from the criticism and is enjoying a fine run of form. Chris Smalling – Twice criticised this season, Mourinho’s big issue with Smalling appears to be the centre-back’s unwillingness to put his body on the line for Manchester United. Before the 3-1 win over Swansea in November, Smalling and Shaw claimed they were not 100 per cent fit for the game, and Mourinho had to field a makeshift defence. This did not go down well with the Portuguese, who highlighted the fact other players in Smalling’s situation made themselves available to play: “We have players with problems but we have players on the pitch who have problems.” The same problem came to the fore a second time in April, with Mourinho claiming Smalling has a ‘cautious’ mentality – something he believes is a problem with many players in ‘professional football at a high level’. 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 Paul Pogba – Mourinho has been one of few people to stand up for Pogba during much of the season, with the French midfielder criticised heavily for not living up to his huge price tag. However, the Portuguese has found time to hit out at his star man – notably after the 0-0 draw with Liverpool in October. Pogba’s passing was criticised, with Mourinho saying he expected more penetration in the middle of the park. The manager also backed Rio Ferdinand’s criticism of Pogba in February, saying the former defender has earned the right to comment on United’s affairs given what he achieved at Old Trafford as a player. Jesse Lingard – Like Rashford, Lingard was the subject of Mourinho’s ire following United’s 0-0 draw with West Brom. The Portuguese claim the winger was not ‘consistent’, having just a ‘flash of talent’. Lingard was also named as one of United’s ‘disappearing’ players by Mourinho – those players who show up when they want and do not carry the team. Lingard performed excellently against Chelsea a few weeks after the West Brom game, though his entire season has been largely mediocre. Mourinho did defend Lingard when the winger was handed a new contract, however. Anthony Martial – Along with Shaw, Martial has been the biggest target of Mourinho’s criticism this year – and the reasons for the anger are comparable between the two players. Martial has been handed a number of chances to impress, but has consistently struggled when on the pitch – and Mourinho’s patience is starting to wear thin. He verbally warned the French forward in November, saying: “You have one opportunity, you have two, you have three – if you don’t bite then somebody comes and takes the bait.” The Portuguese has made it clear he sees potential in Martial, but he seems to suggest the 21-year-old has not worked hard enough to adapt his game to Mourinho’s ideals: “Do I think Anthony is player with great potential? Yes. Do I think he can play successfully for me? Yes. But he needs to give me things that I like.” Phil Jones – Similar to Smalling, centre-back Jones has also been told to be braver and step up to play even when not fully fit. The England man also has that ‘cautious’ approach that Smalling shares, and following the Europa League win over Anderlecht which threw United into an injury crisis, Mourinho claimed Jones needs to take a risk – ‘because for the team you have to do everything’. The Portuguese said Jones should make himself available immediately – but he has not played a single game since then. Zlatan Ibrahimovic – Even the mighty Ibrahimovic has been criticised by Mourinho this season, following the 1-1 Europa League draw against Anderlecht. The Red Devils were pegged back having missed a host of chances to put the result beyond doubt, with Zlatan at fault for wasting a number of opportunities in front of goal. Ibrahimovic was, along with United’s other forwards, blamed for United only drawing the game. However, a week later, Mourinho absolved the Swede of any individual blame, saying: ‘I was not disappointed with Zlatan, I was disappointed with the team.’ 9last_img read more

  • SAA to fly non-stop to New York

    first_imgRay Maota The Airbus A340-600 will be used by SAA for the long-haul flight to New York. (Image: Flickr) SAA now also has a return non-stop flight from JFK International Airport in New York. (Image: Airflights.To) MEDIA CONTACTS •Fani Zulu SAA Corporate Affairs +27 82 451 0457 RELATED ARTICLES • 1time to start flying from Lanseria • Sudan vote boosts airline industry • In-flight wi-fi coming to South Africa soon • Mango gets world Superbrand statusSouth African Airways (SAA) passengers will soon be able to fly non-stop to New York – a move that will also ensure faster and more efficient transfer to other popular US destinations.This comes after SAA released an enhanced flight schedule on 26 January 2011. Passengers will have more seats to choose from on the New York route thanks to a bigger aircraft, as well as more seats on flights to destinations in Africa.The revised New York schedule will be effective from 1 May this year.SAA general manager Theunis Potgieter said: “From 1 May 2011 we will offer our customers the convenience of flying non-stop between Johannesburg and New York. Our non-stop flights will allow a full day in Johannesburg with an early morning arrival in New York.“The reduced travel time results in fast and efficient connections to several key US destinations such as Boston, Chicago, Florida, California, as well as Canada and the Caribbean,” added Potgieter.The direct link will mean less travelling time for New York-bound SAA passengers, who currently have to stop in Dakar, Senegal, en route for the plane to refuel.“SAA now offers the fastest and most comfortable way to commute between Southern Africa and this major global hub. Travellers originating from other domestic points and Southern African countries like Namibia, Botswana, Mozambique, Angola, and Zambia – and as far north as Kenya and Tanzania – can now be in New York with a single, quick connection via Johannesburg,” said Potgieter.The non-stop flight will depart from OR Tambo International in Johannesburg at 8:35pm local time and arrive at JFK International Airport in New York at 6:40am, local time, the following day. The return flight from JFK departs at 11:15am, New York time, and arrives in Johannesburg at 8:40am.Marc Cavaliere, SAA executive vice-president in North America, said: “Travellers have told us that they truly value SAA’s morning non-stop service from JFK and the range of excellent, same-day connection opportunities it affords to more than 40 destinations in Africa.“But they’ve also expressed that they would love it even more if our return flight also operated non-stop. We’ve answered their calls, and are pleased to announce a return non-stop flight to New York.”SAA will use an Airbus 340-600 for the direct flight.Other routes hot up tooUsing an Airbus 340-600 will also enable SAA to grow passenger numbers on African routes, including Kenya and Namibia.From 27 February, the airline will be able to take 3 500 passengers to Nairobi, Kenya, each week as opposed to 2 918 – the volume allowance at the moment.From 27 March, it will also increase the number of seats from 5830 to 6 746 on seven of its 20 weekly flights to and from Windhoek, Namibia.This will enable more passengers to get from Windhoek to Johannesburg each week to catch connecting flights to Frankfurt, Munich, London and New York.Leading aeronautics manufacturerAirbus has been one of the world’s leading aircraft manufacturers for the past 40 years, after its establishment in 1970.At 75m, the Airbus 340-600 is the longest such model in operation. With three passenger classes it can hold 360 commuters, while a two-class layout can accommodate 419.It is expertly designed to fly longer distances of up to 7 900 nautical miles.SA’s national carrierSAA has become one of Africa’s leading passenger carriers over the years. It began operations on 1 February 1934 after the government of the time took over the assets and liabilities of Union Airways, renaming it SAA.In the 1940s, SAA revolutionised air travel in South Africa by introducing cabin crew on domestic flights and movies on direct flights between Johannesburg and Cape Town.SAA’s cadet training programme – which has been running since the 1990s – enables previously disadvantaged South Africans to train as pilots, ensuring all crew on all flights reflect the unique diversity of the nation.last_img read more

  • Crafty ideas to up-level your event logbook

    first_img*You may consider hosting an event on December 31 or January 1 for the Goodbye 2019, Hello 2020 celebrations. Decorative garland A small Christmas tree or a pine tree branch will build the base for this logbook. You can buy miniature ornaments or provide decorative paper for your attendees to craft tree decorations. Geocachers can write their geocaching names on those and hang them in the tree. This will make for a beautiful keepsake for your home during the holidays and will remind you of the good times you had. Even if the weather outside isn’t frightful where you are (it’s always sunny somewhere in the world), it’s time to get together and be merry. If you are planning to host a geocaching event this time of the year*, why not get crafty and add some festive flair. Even though logbooks are optional at geocaching events, they are a great way to remember a special gathering with your geocaching friends. All you need (besides love) for this logbook are gift wrap ribbons or paper, scissors, tape, and a few permanent markers. Cut off equal strips and have attendees write their geocaching names on them. Tape every strip to make a circle that links up with the previous circle to create a chain. If you want, you can hold on to the garland after the event and add to it every future event you might host. The garland logbook can grow over time and you can use differently themed ribbons to represent time of year or a special event theme. Here are three creative ideas to make your event logbook shine. If you have ever been tempted to become a graffiti artist, now is your chance to do so in a non-destructive way. If you have time, bake your own gingerbread house, or buy a premade kit and ask attendees to decorate it with their usernames. This is a logbook everyone can use to express their creativity. Bonus, you can eat it later. How joyful! Geocaching tree Gingerbread house Have you encountered a festive logbook before? Do you have great ideas worth sharing?
