STETHS blank Bridgeport

first_imgWESTERN BUREAU:Omar Wedderburn said he told his St Elizabeth Technical players to have fun and enjoy last evening’s FLOW Super Cup quarter-final match against Bridgeport High, and they did just that.They completed a deserved 2-0 victory to seal their spot in the semi-finals of the competition.Alex Thompson first fired STETHS into the lead after 18 minutes, and then Demar James completed the scoring with a calm finish in the 78th.Bridgeport did, however, have a chance to cut into STETHS’ lead, but watched as goalkeeper Kenroy Wallace saved brilliantly from a Shakeen Powell penalty kick in the 80th minute.ENJOY THE GAME”I just told them to enjoy the game; it was a quarter-final matchup and we knew that once we enjoyed ourselves, it would be hard to deny us the win,” said a confident Wedderburn.But while STETHS had the lion’s share of ball possession, Bridgeport did have a few good looks at goal, most notably in the 20th minute when Dante Green beat the offside trap. His shot, however, went high over the crossbar to end the first half.STETHS dominated the second half. James struck the upright with a powerful shot on the 60th minute as the rural area kingpins looked to increase their lead.His strike partner, Javoney Brown, also produced a thunderous effort off the dribble 35 yards out, but could only pick out the crossbar.”As seen here tonight, we played like a STETHS team on a mission. On another day, perhaps, we would have scored more, but it is good enough to get us into the semis,” Wedderburn said.Bridgeport’s head coach Garnet Lawrence said his team played well although failing to score.”We played good football tonight. We showed that we are a good team, but sometimes good teams lose,” said Lawrence.last_img read more

Raja end 15-yr wait for CAF title despite defeat

first_img0Shares0000Spaniard Juan Carlos Garrido made history Sunday by becoming the first coach to win the CAF Confederation Cup with two clubs © AFP / ISSOUF SANOGOJOHANNESBURG, South Africa, Dec 3 – Moroccan club Raja Casablanca ended a 15-year wait for an African trophy by winning the CAF Confederation Cup in the Democratic Republic of Congo Sunday despite a 3-1 second-leg loss to V Club.Raja, who won the last edition of the CAF Cup in 2003, beat V Club 3-0 in the first leg in Casablanca last Sunday and triumphed 4-3 on aggregate in the two-leg title decider. It was the sixth CAF title for the Moroccans, who have also won the Champions League three times and the Super Cup once.Abdelilah Hafidi put Raja ahead after 21 minutes on a synthetic pitch saturated by pre-match rain at the 80,000-seat Stade des Martyrs in Kinshasa.The goal left V Club, whose only CAF title came 45 years ago, needing to score five to win the second-tier African club competition.Jean-Marc Makusu, who started after recovering from a first-leg injury, levelled on the night by slamming a free-kick high into the net during first-half stoppage time.Raja appeared to be cruising toward overall victory until the Congolese scored twice within three minutes midway through the second half.Substitute Mukoko Batezadio fired into the net after a goalmouth scramble on 71 minutes and Fabrice Ngoma converted a cross soon after to raise hopes of a sensational comeback.But Raja stood firm and there were no further clearcut scoring chances for the Congolese, leaving them with an unwanted record of losing three of four CAF finals they reached.Spain-born Raja handler Juan Carlos Garrido became the first coach to win the African equivalent of the UEFA Europa League with two clubs.He guided Al Ahly of Egypt to a dramatic victory in the 2014 final with the decisive goal against Sewe San Pedro of the Ivory Coast coming after 96 minutes in Cairo.Victory for Raja also confirmed the dominance of north African clubs in the Confederation Cup, which replaced the African Cup Winners Cup and CAF Cup competitions in 2004.They are the fourth Moroccan club to lift the trophy after FAR Rabat (2005), FUS Rabat (2010) and Moghreb Fes (2011) and the 10th north African winners in 15 finals.V Club, who won at home and drew away against Raja in the group stage, had hoped to emulate compatriots and arch domestic rivals TP Mazembe, winners of the 2016 and 2017 finals.However, the odds were stacked against them as only Mouloudia Alger of Algeria had overcome a three-goal first-leg deficit in 108 previous home-and-away CAF club finals.Raja will start defending the title on December 16 with a round-of-32 home fixture in the 2018/2019 edition against Silver Strikers of Malawi or Cercle Mberi Sportif of Gabon.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Google: There is Potential to Make the Mobile Web Better than the PC Web

first_imgTop Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Tags:#Google#Trends#web Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… During Google’s Q4 earnings call, a lot of the discussion focused on the mobile web. Google clearly thinks that the mobile web is poised for massive growth over the next few years and projects like Android show that Google wants to control as much of this market as possible. One of the most interesting comments during yesterday’s call came from Jonathan Rosenberg, Google’s vice president for product development, who said that “with all the capabilities these phones that are coming out have like GPS, cameras, we think there is the potential to actually make this mobile web better than the PC web.”For Google, It’s All About AdsGoogle, of course, is mostly interested into turning the mobile web into a lucrative market for its advertising products. For Google, making the mobile web better than the PC web means that you can call advertisers directly from a mobile ad and increase conversion rates. For most users, however, the ability for ads to let them make calls on their mobile phones is probably not very high up on their wish lists. In the broader context of recent trends on the mobile web, however, Rosenberg’s comment does ring true.Using Sensors to Personalize the Mobile WebJust a week, ago, for example, Google introduced location aware searches for mobile phones. If you go to google.com on your phone today, Google tweaks its search results based on your current location. Google’s regular browser-based search can’t do this. Thanks to the sensors in today’s mobile phones and the potential for adding more complex sensors in the near future, the mobile web has the potential to give us a more personalized user experience than our current laptops and desktops are able to. What do You Think?Does the mobile web have the potential to be better than the PC web on your desktop? Isn’t the small screen a serious impediment for making this experience better than the desktop experience? Or will Apple’s mythical tablet solve all these problems and give us a mobile web experience that’s somewhere in between the user experience a phone and on the desktop?

Today’s IoT technologies are circling tomorrow’s airports

first_imgIoT technologies, including sensors, wearables, virtual reality, and more are set to become a big part of the airports of tomorrow – and nearly a quarter of the world’s airlines are already on board.For the most part, travellers are becoming accustomed to the slowly growing influence of technology on their travel. Electronic check-in has eliminated the need to stand in long lines at the check-in counter. Body scanners and other technologies are used by the TSA as passengers pass through the checkpoint.See also: 5 IoT innovations that can’t advance without wireless powerOnce you get to your gate, you can use your smartphone to get a real-time update on your plane’s location and status. A savvy traveller will be able to use these tools to quickly move from the drop-off point to their seat on the plane in a fraction of the time they would have just ten years ago.But airports are a little different. They’re busy, crowded places where the flow of people through the different checkpoints can go from smooth to a standstill in seconds. Bags are still misplaced and even lost, and finding your way through the maze of a building is every bit as confusing as it has ever been.This is where IoT technologies including sensors placed at strategic points in the airport can come in handy. Sensors that track the flow of traffic at various checkpoints, the location of luggage as it passes through the airport to its destination, and even security tools such as biometric tokens and wearables for staff can help streamline and improve the travel experience for passengers and staff alike.A recent study by the airline industry association, SITA, shed light on the kind of role IoT technologies will play in tomorrow’s airport.This study found that nearly a third of all airports are already taking advantage of the Internet of Things by placing sensors in key locations around the airport. Over the next three years, this number is expected to climb by 43%.Sensors are a core feature of the IoT. They provide valuable insight by tracking things like traffic flow, congestion, and performance. Here’s a quick breakdown of the percentage of the 225 airports represented in the global study plan to place sensors over the next three years.66% — Security check points61% — Bag-drop areas60% — Retail areas54% — Boarding gates52% — Baggage claimThese sensors will enable airport management to have a real-time understanding of where they need to focus to improve traveller experience. Whether it’s additional staff at the check-in counter or a faster turn-around at the TSA checkpoint, this data will undoubtedly help to speed things up in the airport.And it’s not just sensors at airportsSensors aren’t the only IoT-related technology being applied to airports. Travellers with smartphones will be able to take advantage of location-aware apps to help guide them to their gate, a point that 71% of respondents indicated they were working to implement.Wearables for both passengers (36%) and staff (41%) were also at the top of the list of applied IoT technologies. These wearables will enable staff to have quick access to restricted areas and give them access to data collected by sensors in their area to help them make educated decisions.Virtual reality services (41%) and artificial intelligence (33%) were also on the list. Artificial intelligence would enable airport staff to benefit from quick, accurate analysis of real-time data to offer passengers more accurate arrival and departure times as well as to predict a rush on a certain service or checkpoint within the airport.IoT technologies may not solve everything. Air travel will still be a pain in the neck for many travellers. But, at least with the additional insight and ease of access made possible by these technologies, it could be less of a hassle.
