Zharnel Hughes eyeing Rio

first_img “If you look back at the race, I was actually in third position and then my back flared up a bit on me.” With his deep baritone unwavering, he said: “There was nothing I could have done.” Informed of his Track and Field News ranking, he said: “I wasn’t expecting it but I put in the work, and it definitely did pay off for me.” Hughes and his Jamaican coach, Patrick Dawson, a highly regarded assistant to sprint guru Glen Mills at Racers Track Club, have reviewed his 2015 efforts and are cautiously looking forward to Rio and a place in the 200m final. “As to the medal”, said Dawson, “I’m not one of those who like to count my eggs before they hatch, but it would be great to see him on the medal rostrum.” Hughes has started his 2016 programme with a 400-metre personal best of 47.12 seconds. That’s part of an effort to make the sprinter stronger. The plan also includes 100-metre races. He did only one last season and achieved a clocking of 10.15 seconds. While he is confident of lowering his 100-metre best, he is sombre about breaking 20 seconds in the 200m. “Expectations are there,” he said diplomatically. “Work is definitely being put in right now”, he revealed, with the advice that he is expecting the work again to pay off. “It’s just for me to continue to work hard, and to trust my coach and to stay injury free and to continue to climb to the top,” he said, full of hope and determination. “So definitely, maybe one day I could be the world record holder. “You never know.” Third position British sprinter Zharnel Hughes has come a long way since his first international experience at the 2010 Carifta Games. Fresh from a 2015 campaign highlighted by a fifth-place finish in the 200 metres at the World Championships, Hughes has his eyes on the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. He is quietly confident and is expecting his hard work to pay off. In 2010, at the Carifta Games in Grand Cayman, Hughes was timid. “I was always thinking I probably won’t medal,” he recalled. He placed eighth and last in the Under-17 100-metre final won by Jamaica’s Odean Skeen, now at Auburn University in Alabama. “I just went out there and I didn’t know what to do,” he reminisced. The 6’5″ native of Anguilla is far more confident these days. World ranked at number five in the 200 metres by respected US publication Track and Field News, he said: “I just go out there with a positive mindset each time instead of having to doubt myself.” He ended his days as a junior athlete with gold medals from Carifta, the CAC Junior and Pan-Am Junior Championships and the ISSA Boys’ Championships Class One 100-metre record of 10.12 seconds. He entered 2015 with a 200m personal best of 20.32 seconds – from his 2014 season at Kingston College – and cut and carved it down to 20.02 seconds. That time and his fifth-place finish in the World final came despite a minor injury that first surfaced in the semi.last_img read more

Google Brings Its Turn-By-Turn Navigation App to Older Android Phones

first_imgWhy Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Tags:#Google#news#web frederic lardinois Related Posts 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Marketcenter_img Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Google just announced the launch of its Google Maps Navigation app for Android 1.6 and higher. Until now, Google’s turn-by-turn navigation app was only available on Android 2.0 phones like Motorola’s Droid. Now users of older Android handsets like the T-Mobile myTouch 3G and G1 can get free turn-by-turn navigation courtesy of Google. The Android 1.6 version of Google Maps Navigation doesn’t offer some features of the 2.0 version, including advanced voice commands. Otherwise, the two apps seem to be identical. Starting today, Android 1.6 users can download the app from the Android Market. The service is currently only available in the US, though some users managed to hack their phones to make the app work anywhere in the world.We called Google Maps Navigation a killer feature for Android 2.0 when Google announced it’s release last month. Currently, however, there are only a few Android 2.0 phones on the market, so it only makes sense for Google to release this app for older phones as well. Just like the Android 2.0 version, Google Maps Navigation for Android 1.6 will include voice guidance, traffic data, satellite and Street View imagery. The app will also show geographical information courtesy of the Google Maps Layers feature the company introduced earlier this year.last_img read more

Waffle House Announces Clemson-South Carolina Is Its Annual “Waffle Wager” Game

first_imgWaffle House logo.Waffle House The Waffle Wager is coming to the Palmetto State.The Waffle Wager is coming to the Palmetto State.For the third year in a row, Waffle House is putting a friendly “Waffle Wager” on a college football game of its choice. Last year, it was Auburn-Georgia, while in 2013 it was Alabama-Texas A&M. This year, the match-up is Clemson-South Carolina, and either Clemson, S.C. or Columbia S.C. will receive free Waffle House based on the result of the game. From Business Wire: “You can throw out the records when the Tigers and Gamecocks take the field, and when you add in the Waffle Wager, it becomes an even bigger event!” said Walt Ehmer, Waffle House President and CEO. “Good luck to both schools, and like the old saying goes, ‘To the victor goes the waffles, coffee and hashbrowns.’”Fans of the winning team will get the free Waffle House goodness at either a restaurant in Clemson, S.C., or Columbia, S.C. If Clemson wins the game, Royal Cup and C.H. Guenther will provide hashbrowns, waffles and coffee for the fans and if South Carolina wins, Basic American Foods will be stuck with the tab. The “payout” date, time and winning Waffle House location will be announced after the game.In addition to the free hashbrowns, waffles and coffee, the winning university’s general scholarship fund will receive $10,000 to help further the education of its students.Obviously, the Tigers are heavy favorites over the Gamecocks this year. But when free Waffle House is involved, anything can happen. [ Dr. Saturday ]last_img read more

Attawapiskat thirdparty manager sitting on funds for new houses NDP MP Angus

first_imgAPTN National NewsOTTAWA–The outside consultant hired by the federal Aboriginal Affairs department to manage Attawapiskat’s finances “is sitting on” funds the community needs to prepare site work for new modular homes awaiting transport to the community, according to NDP MP Charlie Angus.Angus said officials from diamond company De Beers, which operates a diamond mine near the community, are ready to prepare the site for the 22 modular homes the department purchased in response to the housing crisis in the community. The homes, built in New Brunswick, are current awaiting shipment in Moosonee, Ont.Angus said in question period Wednesday that the third-party manager has not only “cut off” funds preventing site work for the homes, but also for Attawapiskat’s education system.“Canadians expect a just resolution to the Attawapiskat crisis, but the minister prefers to punish the community,” said Angus, MP for Timmins-James Bay. “It has been two months since he has cut off all the funding to the education system and to students. He has cut off the funding that is needed to actually prepare the site so the modular homes can be brought in.”Aboriginal Affairs Minister John Duncan said the funds haven’t been released because the band leadership has refused to give the third-party manager requested information.“We have a manager in place and he wants to work with the First Nations leadership in the community,” said Duncan. “He has asked for and not received the information he needs in order to pay the bills that this member from Timmins is asking for.”Angus accused Duncan of treating the community “like a hostage population” while paying a consultant, who is based in Winnipeg “$50,000” while the technical team from De Beers “does not have a dime” to lay the ground work for the new homes.Duncan called Angus’ claims a “fabrication,” but added he could not comment on the third-party manger because the issue is before the courts.Attawapiskat has gone to Federal Court seeking to overturn the department’s decision to impose the third-party manager. A hearing was held in Toronto Tuesday and a decision is expected soon.The federal government imposed the third-party manager last November as the scandal over the dire and life-threatening housing conditions on the reserve gripped the Canadian public.Prime Minister Stephen Harper and Duncan both blamed the band leadership for creating the housing crisis by mishandling money.Attawapiskat Chief Theresa Spence has said her administration was working to rectify the band’s finances and, as proof of their commitment to transparency, posted all their financial data online.In a speech opening the Crown-First Nations Gathering last Tuesday, Harper said a “new day” had dawned on the relationship between First Nations and Canada.last_img read more

Huawei wants India to remove hurdles for 5G spectrum

first_imgShenzhen: Chinese telecom equipment major Huawei on Tuesday said that India should address the constraints in the spectrum availability to make 5G technology-based services a success in the country. Speaking to IANS on the sidelines of the Huawei Global Analysts Summit 2019 here Huawei Executive Director David Wang, who is also the company’s ICT strategy head, also pointed out that the Indian telecom market is currently faced with excess competition. Also Read – Swiggy now in 500 Indian cities, targets 100 more this year “Huawei would like to see India become more attractive in terms of 5G. We hope to see more changes in the Indian market..there is lack of spectrum for 5G operators which could affect the services. If the constraints present in the 4G is there in 5G as well, then these constraints might hamper growth,” Wang said. Huawei Deputy Chairman Ken Hu said some of the growth irritants of 4G in India should not be repeated. These problems had made it difficult for telcos to make profits with the 4G spectrum in the face of excessive competition in the telecom services market. Also Read – New HP Pavilion x360 notebook with in-built Alexa in India “If operators are struggling to make profits under 4G, I wonder how will they become profitable in 5G. Competition in Indian market is overheated”, Ken said. “My personal view is that for a very long time after 4G deployment, eMBB will be the main scenario. If operators are already struggling to gain profits on eMBB scenario under 4G, then I wonder how do they make profits under 5G””, he added. eMBB, or enhanced Mobile Broadband, is one of the three sets of used cases defined for 5G. Huawei which has faced security concerns in some parts of Europe and in the US, said that it is already in the Indian government’s invitee list for 5G trials, as and when these take place. “We were invited by the Indian government last year to conduct field trials for 5G and also participated in used cases and researches with operators in India. Huawei is deeply engaged with the Indian market on 5G,” Wang said. “India is similar to China and other growing markets in terms of requirements and ICT and is an important market for us”, he added. Huawei has undertaken 5G demo trials, alongwith Airtel and Reliance Jio, at the Indian Mobile Congress. India’s Department of Telecom so far has not taken any decision on the time period for 5G trials as the telecom operators have differences over the quantum of spectrum to be allotted and the duration of the field exercise. While the operators demand a one-year minimum period for trial, the government says it only allot spectrum for 90-day trials. The Indian telecom services market is facing severe competition, with a tariff war unleashed by Reliance Jio already affecting telcos’ bottomlines. They are already complaining about the high high reserve price of the next spe4ctrum auction slated to take place later this year. Huawei has been present in India since the last decade in the telecom equipment business and has so far worked with Airtel and BSNL. It faces completion from fellow Chinese rival ZTE, Korean major Samsung, and the European firms Ericsson and Nokia.last_img read more

Bengal braces for stormy weekend as Fani approaches

first_imgKolkata: With less than 24 hours left for Cyclone Fani to make landfall in neighbouring Odisha coast, the West Bengal government and civic bodies on Thursday worked on war footing to cope with the storm set to travel across state starting early Saturday. The state government and the Kolkata Municipal Corporation are bracing for a severely stormy weekend. During the day decision was taken to shift people living in low lying areas to safer places. Schools were asked to prepone summer vacations as Fani hovered around 835 km southwest of Kolkata and 650 km south-southwest of Digha.

The district administrations in the coastal areas were constantly announcing the precaution and measure that every person must take to avoid any accident or disaster. “The cyclone is very likely to move north-northeastwards and cross Odisha coast between Gopalpur and Chandbali, around Puri during May 3 afternoon with a maximum sustained wind speed of 170-180 kmph gusting to 200 kmph,” the Regional Meteorological Centre here said in a special bulletin. Also, power and communication poles most likely to get uprooted, kutcha and pucca roads damaged, railway services disrupted and there could be widespread damages to standing crops and plantations, it said. The East Midnapore District administration has been asked to take all preventive measures and maintain a strict vigil on the Digha, Mandarmani and other beaches so as to stop visitors from bathing during the next three days as the sea would be turbulent. Steps have been taken in the coastal areas of Digha to prevent people from going near the sea.last_img read more

2 Russian spies sentenced in Montenegro in Coup attempt

first_imgPodgorica (Montenegro): A Montenegro court on Thursday sentenced 13 people, including two Russian secret service operatives, to up to 15 years in prison after they were convicted of plotting to overthrow the Balkan country’s government and prevent it from joining NATO. Chief judge Suzana Mugosa said the two Russians, identified as Eduard Shishmakov and Vladimir Popov, were convicted of “attempted terrorism” and “creating a criminal organisation.” The two were tried in absentia. Shishmakov received a 15-year prison term while Popov got 12 years. Two leading ethnic Serb opposition politicians, Andrija Mandic and Milan Knezevic, were sentenced to five years each. The verdict said the group planned to take over parliament on election day on October 16, 2016, assassinate then-Prime Minister Milo Djukanovic and install a pro-Russia, anti-NATO leadership. Montenegro joined NATO in June 2017 as the Western military alliance’s 29th member despite strong opposition from Moscow, which considers the small Adriatic country a historic Slavic ally and is opposed to NATO’s enlargement. The Kremlin has repeatedly denied involvement in the coup attempt. Montenegro’s police thwarted the action after receiving tips from Western spy organizations, authorities said. The Russian pair, said to be members of the Russian military secret service agency GRU, coordinated the attempted coup from neighbouring Serbia, the verdict said. They were allowed by Serbia’s pro-Russia authorities to leave for Moscow despite reports that they operated with sophisticated spy equipment. The judge said that the Russians provided at least 200,000 euros for the purchase of rifles and guns. She said two tried to recruit “as many people as possible to come to the protest” and try to “change the electoral will” and “prevent Montenegro from joining NATO.”last_img read more
