DAY THREE SUMMARY- SENIORS 2006 NTL

first_imgDay 3 at the seniors NTL was hot and not just in the competition…the weather had taken a turn for the worst, bringing out the swimming pools and the doctors. It was not to last though, as the storm clouds rolled in for the final rounds of the day (thankfully no rain, just a little heat relief). The competition was also heating up as teams fired up as they were heading for the finals…MENS 30’s: It was day three that saw the Sydney Mets record their first non-win, well sort of, they didn’t lose but instead managed a draw against the Sydney Scorpions. The Scorpions scored in the final minute of play to seal the 4-4 draw.The Suns and Defence Warriors fill the remaining top four spots, with the fourth placed Warriors facing the fifth placed Sharks tomorrow morning in a qualifying final for the last semi final position. It will certainly take a mighty effort from the Suns, Scorpions, Warriors or Sharks to bring down the Mets, aiming for their fourth title in a row.WOMENS 30’s: After a tight Womens 30’s series, the showdown begins tomorrow with the semi nfinals set to produce some brilliant matches.The Scorpions may have finished undefeated, but this will not matter to their cross-town rivals the Mets, who will be keen to upset the favourites in their semi.In the second semi it will be the Southern Suns and the Rustlers, who both finished strongly with 6-3 and 5-3 wins over the Sharks and Cyclones respectively.     MENS 35’S: The Mens 35’s top four for the semi finals is signed, sealed and delivered. The Sharks will face the Rustlers in the first semi final, while the Mets and Scorpions will play in the second one. The Sharks have not been troubled yet, although they were not entirely convincing over both the Mets and the Scorpions, both times winning 5-3. Tomorrow’s action in the Mens 35’s will certainly be tough.WOMENS 35’S: The Womens 35’s still takes the cake for the most even division, with the Sharks clear on top with 6 wins and 1 loss, with just one match tomorrow morning before finals.However, second through to fifth is an entirely different story, as the Rustlers, Suns and Hornets have all recorded 3 wins apiece, while the Eagles have recorded two wins. This division is up and down like a yo-yo and with the finals series being a straight 1-2 grand final. Stay tuned tomorrow; it’s set to be a cracker!MENS 40’S: Day three action saw some good matches in the Mens 40’s division, with the Mets holding off a spirited Barbarians attack 5-3, a great 3-2 win for the Cyclones over the Rustlers and the Sharks taking 4 touchdowns off the Scorpions, recording a 7-4 loss.At the end of the day it was the Scorpions who were untroubled at the top of the ladder and who will go through to the first semi final against the winner of the fourth vs fifth quarter final the Sydney Mets, while the Suns face the Sharks in tomorrow’s second semi final.In the fourth vs fifth quarter final, the Defence came from 2-0 down at half time, to force the game into a drop off, where the drop off lasted for almost 8 minutes before the Mets crossed the line for the winning score. They’ll have their work cut out against the force of the Scorpions in tomorrow’s semi final.The remaining teams will fight it out for the Plate final tomorrow.WOMENS 40’S: The Womens 40’s finished off their round matches with some great Touch Footy, a 1-0 win for the Eagles over the Cyclones was a great defensive exhibition, while the Scorpions 4-3 win over the Rustlers was a touchdown for touchdown affair.The Eagles win saw them through to the final four, facing the Sydney Scorpions in the first semi final, while the Suns will face the Cobras in the second semi final.MENS 45’S: The moment of the day in the Mens 45’s had to be when the boys in the Fishbowl pointed out TFA’s Member Services Manager Peter Topp in his field one match at 5:40pm…they very kindly dedicated the next song…’Top Cat’…to the Fishbowl Favourite. Great work Toppy.The day three action in the Mens 45’s saw the ACT side narrowly miss a semi final berth, their late charge not enough to win them fourth position.The Cobras finished undefeated with 4-1 and 6-2 wins over the Eagles and Suns respectively sealing their unbeaten run and their position in the first semi final against the Suns.The Mets and Northern Eagles will face off in the second semi final tomorrow.MENS 50’S: The heat on day three seemed to bring the front runners back to the pack in the Mens 50’s, with several close games…The Cyclones held off the Cobras 3-2, while the Rustlers and Scorpions drew 2-2 and most other games were decided by no more than 1-2 touchdowns.Tomorrow, the Hornets will face the Cobras in the first semi final, while the Rustlers and Scorpions will follow up their earlier draw with another meeting in the second semi final.last_img read more

TFA Supports ‘It Stops With Me’ Campaign

first_imgTouch Football Australia (TFA) is pleased to be joining the campaign to fight racism through the ‘It Stops With Me’ National Anti-Racism Strategy launched by the Australian Human Rights Commission in 2012. TFA joins many sporting organisations supporting the campaign, committing to play a visible role by taking a public stance against racism in the community.The purpose of the campaign is to ensure more Australian’s recognise that racism is unacceptable in our community; give more Australians, at an individual and organisation level, the tools and resources to take practical action against racism; and empower individuals and organisations to prevent and respond effectively to racism where it may happen. Over the next three years, the National Anti-Racism Strategy will focus on five key priority areas: schools and higher education, the media, government service provision, workplaces and the internet.This Strategy calls on all members of the Australian community to work towards eradicating the barriers to equality that result from racism. Ultimately, racism stops because of the actions we take individually and collectively. We all have a role to play in taking action against racism wherever we see it and supporting initiatives to stop it from happening.For more information about the ‘Racism – It Stops With Me’ campaign or to sign up as supporter, please visit the following website – http://itstopswithme.humanrights.gov.auRelated Links‘It Stops With Me’ Campaignlast_img read more

first_imgRoma president Pallotta admits no holds barred Monchi meetingby Carlos Volcano10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveAS Roma president James Pallotta admits he’s had a no holds barred meeting in Boston with sports director Monchi.Roma are currently struggling in seventh position.“We had a very productive three days together in Boston discussing both the football and business activities of the club,” said Pallotta.“It goes without saying that no one at the club is happy with the results and performances so far this season and we had an open and honest conversation about issues that we need to address and improve as a matter of urgency to get our season back on track.“There was a lot of straight talking and everything was put on the table. Our only goal now is to do better in everything we do and we will work on that together – from me, our board, our management team, Monchi, Di Francesco, our football operations staff, the players and all the staff.“Together we haven’t met the very high expectations we have set for ourselves – and have tried to deliver on in recent seasons – and that must improve. Together we are working to address that.“If anyone at the club is not committed to being part of a team effort, there’s no place for them here.” TagsTransfersAbout the authorCarlos VolcanoShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

first_imgCrystal Palace boss Hodgson: I’d welcome new strikerby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveCrystal Palace boss Roy Hodgson has opened the door to signing a new striker in January.Hodgson was asked about his market plans after victory over Wolves.He said, “We’ve got a man coming back we hope. Benteke trains with us tomorrow and obviously he’ll be fully back with us in the course of the next week. If he gets match fit then that will be to an extent a new signing this year because we’ve hardly seen him.“If there are other players that the club can bring in, I certainly won’t be averse to that because we have a very small squad and we haven’t had a lot to back us up at the minute. We’re on the lookout of course and the chairman and technical director are anxious to do what they can to give me and my coaching staff more support, but it’s not easy certainly when you have limited transfer resources.” TagsTransfersAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

TRS banks on good show by regional parties in LS polls

first_imgHyderabad: The Telangana Rashtra Samithi on Monday said most of the regional parties are confident of turning in a good performance in the Lok Sabha elections, giving a boost to its chief K Chandrasekhar Rao’s idea of forging a non-Congress, non-BJP federal front post-poll.TRS spokesperson Abid Rasool Khan said most of the regional parties were confident of getting lot of seats, and claimed they were open to the idea of such a front proposed by the Telangana Chief Minister. Also Read – How a psychopath killer hid behind the mask of a devout laity!”As soon as the (Lok Sabha election) results are out, there would be parleys and formation of a (federal) front. If it has the majority, it will form the government,” Khan told PTI. If this proposed front falls short of numbers, it will decide what role it should play and “how it will have control over the government so that the states don’t suffer and policies of the states are not affected,” he said. TRS is counting on parties such as the SP, BSP, BJD and YSRCP to be on board the proposed federal front, party leaders have said earlier. Also Read – Encounter under way in Pulwama, militant killedKhan said his party was ready to support the YSRCP in neighbouring Andhra Pradesh, where Assembly and Lok Sabha elections would be held simultaneously on April 11, so long as it has no truck with the BJP or Congress. In what way the TRS, the ruling party in Telangana, would back YSRCP in Andhra Pradesh is a matter of “political strategisation” between the leadership of the two outfits, he added. Khan said the AIMIM President and Hyderabad MP, Asaduddin Owaisi would campaign for TRS candidates in “all the districts, wherever we require his support, wherever there is sizeable population of minorities and Dalits, and we will extend our support to him in Hyderabad.” TRS deputy floor leader in the Lok Sabha and Karimnagar MP, B Vinod Kumar, claimed Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu, who is also the TDP chief, was facing “lot of anti-incumbency” and it might help the YSRCP. Kumar said Chandrasekhar Rao would kick off the party’s campaign in Telangana with a public meeting in Karimnagar in March third week. The TRS, which won 11 of the total 17 seats in the previous Lok Sabha elections in 2014, was already in campaign mode with the party last week initiating Parliamentary constituency-wise meetings chaired by its working president K T Rama Rao. The TRS has said it aims to win 16 seats in the April 11 Lok Sabha polls in Telangana, leaving the Hyderabad segment to Owaisi who would be backed by the party.last_img read more

JAMAICA Prime Minister calls on Church to preach against violence

first_img Related Items: Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#Jamaica, January 5, 2018 – Kingston – Prime Minister, the Most Hon. Andrew Holness, has called on church leaders to preach against crime and violence, as it is undermining the family structure.“Bring it to your pulpit.  We cannot allow much of what is happening, particularly the abuse that is happening within families,” he said.The Prime Minister was speaking at the 13th annual National Gathering of Heal the Family, Heal the Nation, held at the National Arena in Kingston on January 3.   Mr. Holness also challenged the church to speak out against family members committing sexual abuse against minors.    He argued that much of these kinds of abuse result in the perpetuation of greater physical abuse such as beatings from parents, who are supposed to protect their children.“If you see something like that, it is not right. It cannot be accepted practice in our culture.   We must expose it and preach against it. If you see someone suffering quietly, reach out to them,” he encouraged.The Prime Minister said the church’s capacity for counselling and outreach must be used to aid those affected by abuse, as this represents a “practical way we can start to address the issue of violence… which has become a part of our social transaction”.   Meanwhile, Mr. Holness hailed the chief organizers of the event, BishopDr. Delford Davis, and his wife, Minister Dr. Petrova Davis, of the Power of Faith Ministries International, for staging it over the last 13 years.   For her part, Custos of St. Andrew, Dr. Patricia Dunwell, also commended   Dr. Davis “for his steadfastness of purpose” in conceptualising the event and his commitment to healing the families of the nation.Dr. Dunwell, who delivered an address on behalf of the Governor-General, indicated that strong families represent the foundation of a nation worthy of respect from its neighbours and people of the world.The event was held in partnership with the Jamaica Umbrella Group of Churches under the theme, ‘Jamaica is God’s Place, So is my House’. It brought together members of a number of denominations to pray for the nation, families and Jamaica’s leadership.Also in attendance were Cabinet Ministers and Head of the Jamaica Constabulary Force, Commissioner George Quallo.

first_imgStudy says cross-border economies produce billions Posted: July 13, 2018 July 13, 2018 SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – The binational economic zone spanning San Diego and Imperial counties as well as Baja California produced $24.3 billion in foreign exports the last year data was available, according to a newly released study.Research conducted by the World Trade Center San Diego and UC San Diego’s Center for U.S.-Mexican Studies also claims that $6.2 billion stayed within the “Cali Baja mega-region” during 2013.The information comes as the Trump administration considers renegotiating the North American Free Trade Agreement, which the president has repeatedly maligned as unfair to the U.S.“Against the backdrop of rapid changes in global production, a newfound ‘trade war’ with China and renegotiations of trade agreements,” economic prosperity relies upon border-spanning trade and production, said Nikia Clarke, World Trade Center San Diego executive director.“An integrated North American economy creates opportunity on both sides of the border. For every 10 jobs an American multinational creates in Mexico, it creates 25 in the United States,” she said. “As we look at a global economy where 95 percent of the world consumers live outside of North America, the ways we partner with Canada and Mexico to produce goods, services and technology is crucial to our economic future.”The impact of cross-border commerce isn’t limited to Southern California, according to the study.It says Mexico is California’s largest export market, with annual exports totaling $26.8 billion. Overall, data indicates Mexico supports more than 566,000 jobs in California.The study also says 51 percent of trade within the mega-region is in services, including computer systems design, scientific research, software publishing and data publishing.The region also produces commodities, according to data, including medical devices, semiconducters, aerospaces parts as well as audio and video equipment. The regional manufacturing sector directly employs 418,300 workers.“It is clear that the cross-border economic relationship plays a critical role in the Cali Baja mega-region in spurring economic growth, advancing technology and enhancing lives on many levels,” said Melissa Floca, Center for U.S.-Mexican Studies associate director. “These findings underscore the importance of continued cooperation between Mexico and the U.S. to enhance the value we create as a region in services and advanced manufacturing.” Categories: Local San Diego News, Politics FacebookTwitter KUSI Newsroom KUSI Newsroom, last_img read more

MPA Advertisers Content Audience All Up Since 2010

first_imgWith a renewed focus on the digital side of publishing, the Association of Magazine Media (MPA) released data showing a 57-percent increase growth in the number of brands advertised since tablets first entered the marketplace in 2010.The study, conducted by Kantar Media, reveals that 5,413 new brands started to advertise with magazines since the first half of 2010, including 3,374 that have done so at least partially on tablets.Content has grown exponentially over that time as well, driven by the introduction and proliferation of mobile devices. Tracking by McPheters & Company i-Monitor shows that almost 10 times the amount of apps are now available when compared to Q3 2010. MPA’s own research from the week of October 1, 2012 says that 66- to 86-percent of the highest-grossing iPad apps in the Lifestyle, Health & Fitness and News categories were developed by magazines.Total audience has increased also–4 percent in the last year–albeit at a slower rate, according to GfK MRI research. “The commitment of brands and advertisers is increasing in magazine platforms,” says Mary Berner, president and CEO of MPA. “Now what we don’t have is the revenue underneath it, so we’re working to get that data. It’s really the wild, wild west in data right now. There are so many different ways to look at it and measure it–there’s a lot of data, but not a lot of insight out there.”The release coincides with Berner’s recent appointment to MPA, and, she says, is indicative of the research the organization will provide moving forward.”One of the first things I did was to do an audit of all the ways that magazine media is measured because what is reported is one leg of a three-legged stool,” she says, referring to often-cloudy online and mobile segments. “[It’s] always around traditional print metrics. There needs to be a clearer picture of what’s really going on in magazine media.””Obviously you want insight, but at this point, what we’ve got is directional data,” she adds. “There are a lot of tools and a lot of ability to track, but the ability to determine what it means is still evolving.”To stay updated on the latest FOLIO: news, become a Facebook fan and follow us on Twitter!last_img read more
