The Fijian that made THAT mind-blowing pass has put pen to paper on a new deal

first_imgTuesday Feb 26, 2019 The Fijian that made THAT mind-blowing pass has put pen to paper on a new deal European Player of the Year nominee and Olympic gold medallist, Viliame Mata, has today committed his future to Edinburgh after putting pen to paper on a new one-year contract extension.ADVERTISEMENTAffectionately known as Big Bill in his adopted home, the Fijian international was already contracted until the end of next season but has chosen to commit further to what Richard Cockerill is building in the Scottish capital in a deal that will see him remain at the club until at least 2021.Today’s announcement is a real statement of intent from the club and one that sees the capital side retain one of world rugby’s most exciting prospects.Cockerill said: “Vili is one of the most exciting talents in the world right now, so I’m delighted that he feels that his future is here in Edinburgh. We love him, and he thrives in the culture we’ve created around him.“He’s still a young man, so I’m looking forward to seeing what he produces in an Edinburgh jersey in the years ahead.”His abilities in open play sent social media into overdrive on his 51st outing in the dark blue jersey, when a sublime offload was collected by James Johnstone to score in a famous win over Toulon in the Heineken Champions Cup at the Stade Mayol.ADVERTISEMENTMata said: “I’ve had a great time in Edinburgh over the last two seasons. We’ve settled in well and my family loves it here. We’re excited and blessed to be staying in this city for another two seasons.“The club is definitely growing and I’m so excited to see how we can keep improving. I’m still getting used to the weather here as it’s so different to back home, but I’ve got another two seasons to keep adapting!“I feel like I fit in really well here and the boys always make me feel right at home. I’m delighted to be extending my stay in Edinburgh, which has truly become a second home for my family and I.”After signing for Edinburgh in the summer of 2016, the 6ft 5in Fijian made a try-scoring debut for the club, grabbing a brace of tries in the 59-17 European Challenge Cup win over Timisoara Saracens in October of the same year.ADVERTISEMENTFollowing a run of impressive performances during the 2017/18 Guinness PRO14 campaign – including a sensational score against Southern Kings in December 2017 which saw the Fijian pick up Try of the Month – Mata penned a two-year contract extension to keep him in the capital until 2020. A deal that has today been extended until 2021.Since his arrival in Scotland, Mata has scored 11 tries in 55 games for the club, reaching the half-century of appearances in last month’s victory over Southern Kings at BT Murrayfield.WATCH: More highlights of Mata in action: Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error News Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Exeter vs Toulouse is off as a number of… 25 WEEKS AGO Danny Cipriani leaves Gloucester with immediate… 25 WEEKS AGO ‘Aphiwe can’t believe it.

Jurgen Klopp set to quit football after Liverpool contract

first_imgJurgen Klopp insists he may turn his back on football after his present contract with Premier League champions Liverpool ends in 2024. The 53-year-old German had wanted to take a year off after he left Borussia Dortmund in 2015 but Liverpool came calling that October asking him to replace Brendan Rodgers. Since then he has guided them to the Champions League trophy in 2019 and this year ended a 30-year wait for the league title. However, he told German website Sportbuzzer that taking a year out in 2024 will give him time to reflect on what he wants to do next. “I will take a year off and ask myself if I miss football,” Klopp said. “If the answer is in the negative, then that will be it for Jurgen Klopp as a coach.” Klopp — who broke Bayern Munich’s stranglehold on the German title winning it with Dortmund two years running (2010/11, 2011/12) — also revealed what he would miss least about the high-pressure business of football management. “If one day I’m not a coach anymore, there’s one thing I won’t miss: The brutal tension just before the game,” he said. “That’s no laughing matter.”Advertisement Promoted Content7 Universities In The World Where Education Costs Too MuchMost Amazing Advanced Robots That Will Change Our World6 Interesting Ways To Make Money With A DroneWho’s The Best Car Manufacturer Of All Time?5 Of The World’s Most Unique Theme ParksEver Thought Of Sleeping Next To Celebs?

The task facing Liverpool in defending the league crown is formidable as only Manchester City in the past 11 years has achieved that (2017/18, 2018/19). “The whole club is up for the new season and wants to do it even better,” said Klopp. “We want to chase our opponents and continue to be a super unpleasant team that is not fun to play against. We’re not defending any titles, we want to get new ones, we’ve only just started winning.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 center_img Loading… last_img read more

Team earns win in home opener with late-inning comeback

first_imgIn the first four innings of Tuesday’s softball game, the Wisconsin Badgers and Loyola Ramblers combined for just two runs on three hits.The Ramblers opened the floodgates in the fifth.With the game locked in a 1-1 tie, Loyola’s Stephanie Cihlar led off the inning with a bunt single back to University of Wisconsin pitcher Eden Brock. The next batter, left fielder Ellen Kresl, looped a base hit off Wisconsin shortstop Lynn Anderson’s glove.After both runners advanced on a double steal, designated hitter Ashley Mitchell hit a soft grounder that stopped dead just in front of the plate. Third baseman Ricci Robben came up to field the ball, but her throw to catcher Joey Daniels was wide, allowing both Cihlar and Kresl to score on the error and Mitchell to reach second base.The Ramblers were nowhere close to done, however. With Wisconsin yet to record an out in the inning, Loyola first baseman Katie Krause sent a shot deep over the left field fence for a two-run home run off of Brock. That pitch would be the Badger ace’s last, as she recorded five runs, four of which were earned.”I was just struggling a little bit,” Brock said. “It happens sometimes. The drop ball wasn’t working as well as it normally does.”Freshman Letty Olivarez entered the game for Brock and allowed one more run to score before finally getting Wisconsin out of the inning, trailing 6-1.”I was a little nervous because I knew everything was going really fast,” Olivarez said. “I just told myself to take everything slow. The girls were having a little bit of trouble, so I wanted to come help Eden out.”Staring at a five-run deficit that late in a game may be discouraging to most teams, but the Badgers did not let the disastrous fifth inning decide the game.”We had a little meeting out there, and apparently what I had to say really inspired them,” Wisconsin head coach Chandelle Schulte said. “I just said, ‘You have to play with heart, and you have to be aggressive.'”Although they were unable to respond in the bottom of the fifth after going three up, three down, Wisconsin came out swinging in the sixth.Daniels led off the inning with a base hit to the third baseman. After Alexis Garcia popped out to the shortstop, Robben smashed a double into the right-center field gap, scoring Daniels.Valyncia Raphael would reach base in the next at-bat, forcing Loyola coach Yvette Healy to take out pitcher Amy Solava.Theresa Boruta, the next batter for the Badgers, was robbed after hitting the ball sharply to the shortstop Lindsay O’Gean.With two outs and only one run scored in the inning, the Badgers continued to attack. Pinch hitter Liz Klemp walked to load the bases, setting up Sam Polito to drive in two runs on a base hit that hit off first baseman Katarina Krause’s glove.”I started out a little rough, but I fed off of everyone else,” Polito said. “I realized I had to come up and do my job and get it done. Everyone else was doing well, started hitting, and I realized it was my time to step up. … I just thought about putting the ball in play and hitting it somewhere hard.”Second baseman Athena Vasquez followed up with an RBI single, scoring Klemp. With the power-hitting Katie Hnatyk up next, Polito scored on a wild pitch by Solava, who had reentered the game for Loyola. The final run of the wild sixth inning came when Garcia, who was batting for her second time in the inning, hit into a fielder’s choice. O’Gean opted to throw to third base, failing to get Hnatyk out and allowing Vasquez to score and give the Badgers the run that would eventually decide the game.Errors nearly cost WisconsinErrors plagued the Badgers all game, as they finished with four. Polito had two, one of which was a dropped ball on a routine fly. Charging in for the ball, Polito threw her hat off and fought with the wind in her attempt to make the catch.”It’s a routine play that should be made,” Polito said. “I don’t know what happened. I just got in my own head and started thinking too much.”The center fielder redeemed herself after the drop, however, by firing the ball to home plate, where Ashley Mitchell was tagged out by Daniels.”I think after you make an error like that and you realize you’ve let not only your pitcher, but your team down. … You always try to do whatever you can to make the out,” Polito said. “I just had to come up and try to make up for what I did wrong.”Robben also was charged with an error in the fifth, as was Anderson, who was unable to bring in a ground ball hit to the shortstop.”Defensively, we struggled on routine plays,” Schulte said. “They weren’t even really challenging plays. We talked about that. We’re going to try to address it.”last_img read more

Nal’ibali’s Story Bosso is named

first_imgAthandiwe Sikade’s entry was an animated retelling of uMboleki, a humorous children’s story with a deeper message about how to behave appropriately in society. (Image: Nal’ibali)A seven-year-old has become South Africa’s Story Bosso after winning the Nal’ibali storytelling competition.Athandiwe Sikade of Khayelitsha in Cape Town, who is only seven, is the winner of the competition. Itis a nationwide talent search to get people of all ages excited about reading and telling stories.The competition invited members of the public to send in audio or video clips of themselves reading or telling their favourite stories.“We collected more than 2 000 submissions from across the country,” said Jade Jacobsohn, the managing director of the Nali’bali reading-for-enjoyment campaign.”Stories came in from all age groups and in all languages.“They ranged from those that made us laugh, to those that made us cry, but best of all, they showed us that a spirit of storytelling – oral, written and in many languages is alive and well, which we can use to inspire children to want to read and write.”Athandiwe is joined by two runners-up: 12-year-old Atang Makgata, who was selected for her original story, A Dream About the Enchanted Forest, and Kerrin Kokot and Jayne Batzofin who entered their bilingual story, The Lonely Frog, in English and Sign Language.The finalists each receive cash prizes, Ackermans vouchers as well as a home library with books courtesy of Exclusive Books, Bargain Books, Cambridge University Press, Jacana Media and the Save Our Seas Foundation.Jacobsohn added that while they were delighted to have discovered so many promising storytellers, Story Bosso was ultimately about helping to root a culture of reading in South Africa.“Sharing stories builds children’s knowledge, concepts, language ability and imagination. So, growing the storytelling and reading habit at home, is a perfect way to help children become motivated and curious learners with greater capacity to succeed at school,” said Jacobsohn.A STORY ON BEHAVING APPROPRIATELYAccording to Nal’ibali, competing against 14 other finalists for the title of South Africa’s first Story Bosso, Athandiwe was chosen for her spirited storytelling style and skill relative to her young age.Her entry was an animated retelling of uMboleki, a humorous children’s story with a deeper message about how to behave appropriately in society.Athandiwe received a surprise visit from renowned local author and Story Bosso celebrity judge, Sindiwe Magona, who treated her and her class to a special storytelling of her own.“In books and stories you will find all the dreams you will ever need,” said Magona.”You will find all the truth the world can give and all the fun there is for each and every boy or girl, little, or big, or somewhere in between.”Athandiwe is from Chumisa Primary in Khayelitsha, where Nal’ibali hosted one of 30 Story Bosso pop-up auditions to source stories directly from the campaign’s network of reading clubs and communities across the country.Along with its partners, Times Media, National Book Week, Jozi Book Fair, Soweto Theatre, Vodacom Teacher Centres, Mad About Art and Africa Unite, auditions were held which served as an opportunity for Nal’ibali to provide caregivers and children across the country with books and literacy materials in their home languages.Over 13 000 books and 26 500 story cards in a range of South African languages were distributed over the duration of the competition.last_img read more

OrganIP: Call Your Friends without Knowing Their Phone Numbers

first_imgWhat it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … sarah perez Tags:#mobile#Product Reviews#web If you’re placing a call directly, it doesn’t immediately ring the recipient’s phone. Instead, they’re alerted via a message in Gtalk or Facebook chat, if available, or via the OrganIP website. They can then choose to answer the call, send the call to voicemail, or have the voicemail transcribed into text and sent to them. If you’re worried about all of a sudden getting a deluge of call requests from online buddies, don’t be. The options available for each contact are a direct reflection of how you’ve configured your profile and privacy settings on the social networks in question. For example, if you don’t list your phone number in your Gmail profile, no one can call you directly, it will always go to voicemail. For Facebook and Gtalk, only those friends who are allowed to chat with you can send a URL via the chat interface to invite you to a phone call. Unfortunately for the company, the actual demo of their technology didn’t go so well on stage. The first attempt at placing a call didn’t go through so it appears they may have some kinks to work out before they officially launch. However, they did give it a shot a second time and the call went through as promised. It’s hard to say whether it was network issues causing the problems or the OrganIP software itself.Partnership with OpenDNSThrough a partnership with the free DNS resource OpenDNS, any users typing in a telephone number in the address bar will be connected to OrganIP service and provided with shortcuts allowing them to make a call or send a voicemail. For a small startup, that’s really hitting the ground running, as OpenDNS currently boasts about 15 million+ users.Mobile Application and Future Plans In addition to the web interface which works on Windows, Mac, and Linux, OrganIP is also launching an Android application which delivers the same functionality to smartphones running Google’s mobile OS. The company is working on versions for iPhone, Palm Pre, Blackberry, Symbian, and Windows Mobile, too, which will be made available in the coming months. For now, OrganIP is a free application, but starting next year, the company plans to charge via a subscription service plan for a reasonable monthly fee which will hover somewhere around $5 per month. The service will be a “freemium” offering, keeping some aspects free while other features will only be available to paying customers. However, all calls made over Wi-Fi networks will remain free always.OrganIP will be launched into an open beta on October 19, 2009. You can sign up to join at www.organip.com. Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces The Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technology Today at the DEMOfall 09 conference, Digitrad announced a new consumer voice service called OrganIP. Although the odd name conjures up ideas of a medical or musical application, we think that perhaps it’s supposed to be a play on the word “organize.” (Well…maybe.) Names aside, what this new application does is intriguing. It connects you with your social networking friends via your mobile phone or web browser, allowing you to place calls even if you don’t know your friend’s phone number. In addition, you can use the app to send voicemails or even voice-to-text messages and all you need to know is a person’s name. For now, the application only works with your Facebook friends, Gmail contacts/Gtalk, and the .tel domains, but they’re working on adding additional networks including LinkedIn, Windows Live Hotmail, and Twitter, all of which should become available in about a month or so. Using OrganIPWhen you launch the application on the web, you’re presented with a search box where you can type in the contact’s name who you want to reach. Assuming you’re connected to them on one of the supported networks, you’ll then be presented with their profile name next to an icon representing which social network they were found on. To place a call, you just click on one of the three options provided: you can either call directly, send them a voicemail, or send a voice-to-text message. Related Posts last_img read more

Position Yourself as an Expert Eco-Builder: Listen to Your Customers

first_imgRapid changes in the residential construction industry are providing new profit and diversification opportunities for builders. Those who see and understand these opportunities can position themselves as experts in the field and provide exemplary service to gain an important edge in the marketplace. Knowing where you stand in relation to your competition is paramount. Educating and communicating that position to prospective customers is equally important.Part 3 of a 7-part series3. Listen to your customersBe proactive in answering commonly asked questions. Consider having a “Frequently Asked Questions” section on your website—and on printed material as well to hand out to walk-ins at your model homes. These questions should clarify inquiries on green building practices, green products, indoor environmental quality, construction processes, etc. Don’t eschew elementary questions; if the question were not important, it wouldn’t be asked.Don’t assume that homebuyers already understand terms like “tankless water heater,” “radiant barrier,” “high-performance insulation,” “sustainable,” and for goodness’ sake, “green!” Define these and all other technical terms on your website, homeowner’s manual, and contract. Hire a copywriter to translate your words into consumer-friendly language if necessary. This small investment could be well worth it! Better yet, use a trusted third-party resource, such as GreenBuildingAdvisor.com, for these definitions and explanations.For questions that fall outside the realm of FAQs, make your contact information clear and easy to find. Give customers the appropriate email address for construction questions and service requests after move-in; these are most likely two different addresses (project superintendent and service desk). Getting the email address right will get them answers more quickly. When is the best time to set the boundaries and expectations in any relationship, business or otherwise?

But Di Maria is also an immense player,” Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos said. “For us it does not change anything. Because Di Maria is a versatile player and brings an extra something defensively.”Di Maria has 11 goals in his last 11 starts in all competitions and is almost certain to start against his former club.“Di Maria is ready, he knows the Champions League well, and I’m convinced he will be hungry,” Emery said.Emery said Mbappe and center back Marquinhos, who were doubtful with minor injuries, trained normally on Sunday. The coach has concerns about Javier Pastore’s form, though.As for Madrid, Luka Modric and Toni Kroos, who haven’t played in nearly three weeks because of injuries, traveled to France with their teammates.

PSG has shown its limits in that competition in the past, it’s now time to get beyond them, so we can keep growing as a club and a team. We are going to try and knock them out. We want to send a message to the others, letting them know we have the weapons to see this through.”In addition to attracting Alves, PSG also splashed out a world record 222 million euros ($260 million) to sign Neymar from Barcelona.
