Sarri wants Hazard saga resolved

first_imgLondon, United Kingdom | AFP | Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri says the time has come for star playmaker Eden Hazard to make up his mind as to whether he will sign a new contract.The 27-year-old Belgian — who has been at Chelsea since 2012 — is a target for Spain’s European champions Real Madrid but said on Thursday he wanted to put off any decision on his future till the end of the season.Chelsea, though, have offered Hazard — who reached a landmark century of goals for the club with a brace in the 2-1 win over Watford on Wednesday — a new contract reported to be worth well over £300,000 ($380,000) a week.Sarri, though, said at his press conference on Friday he wants everything cleared up as soon as possible.“I don’t know but I think that it’s time to decide,” said Sarri when asked if he thought Hazard would stay with the club.“I think that we have to solve the problem. If he wants to program the future, we have to solve this problem.”Sarri, whose side are fourth in the table 11 points off leaders Liverpool ahead of this weekend’s games, said he was powerless to intervene given the power structure inside the club.“I am not the president, I am not in charge of the market, I am the coach,” said the 59-year-old Italian. “I want to speak to him only about the position on the pitch.”Sarri, who will be without Spanish forward Pedro for the away match at Crystal Palace due to a hamstring injury, is also keen to keep Hazard playing as a ‘false nine’ in the absence of the injured Alvaro Morata.Hazard has said he prefers to play on the wing but Sarri said the impact the Belgian has made since he switched him supports his decision.“I cannot see the problem of Hazard in this role,” said Sarri.“He played four matches as false number nine, and he scored three goals and two assists. So I am not able to see the problem.“I am really very happy with him in this position, because he’s very able to score, first of all, but he’s very able to open spaces for the team-mates, to come and play with the team-mates.“So at the moment I am very happy with him in this position, but in the future he can also play as a winger of course.”Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more

Lily May wins Wales title by four

first_img5 May 2019 Lily May wins Wales title by four Tags: elite golf, England squads, Wales Golf England’s Lily May Humphreys added another top title to her collection today with a four shot victory in the Welsh women’s open stroke play championship at Royal St David’s.The 17-year-old international was 10-under for the 54-hole event, finishing four shots clear of her England team-mate, Bel Wardle.She adds this to previous wins in English, Scottish, British, European and American championships which have taken her to the top of the amateur game. Next, she’s off to Ireland to challenge for that open title.Humphreys, from Stoke by Nayland in Essex, said of her latest success: “I was very pleased, I really wanted to win this because I have good memories of playing the course in my first R&A event three years ago. I’ve started hitting some good form and it was nice to combine it all.”Back in 2016, aged 14, she played her first British girls’ championship – aiming simply for experience. She made the cut and went on to reach the quarter finals, and returned the following year to win!This weekend, playing in breezy conditions with gusts of around 25mph, she aimed to play steadily over the tricky, opening six holes and then make her score.Bel Wardle (Prestbury, Cheshire) set the first round pace with her seven-under 66, but Humphreys became the 36-hole leader at six-under, with a pair of 70s. In the final round, both players completed the event with 69s.“I tried not to think about the lead, but just to keep on as I had been playing,” said Humphreys. “I wanted to make my pars and give myself birdie opportunities on the par fives. That was what I was focussing on and the strategy worked.”Four other English players figured in the top 10, with Charlotte Heath (Huddersfield, Yorkshire) taking fourth place; Cara Gainer (Castle Royle, Berkshire) in seventh; and Emily Brennan (Trentham, Staffordshire) and Georgina Blackman (Chelmsford, Essex), sharing 10th.Click here for full scoresImage courtesy James Eades/Wales Golflast_img read more

Mud Snails, Seahorses and Lady Crabs

first_img‘Seine the Bay Day’ Reveals What Lies BeneathStory and photos by Joe ReynoldsWhat’s swimming in Raritan Bay and Sandy Hook Bay? It turns out quite a bit.Members of the all-volunteer Bayshore Regional Watershed Council conducted the sixth annual late spring “Seine the Bay Day” on June 4. The goal was to discover what fish, crabs and other aquatic creatures live along the edge of Raritan Bay and Sandy Hook Bay, the southern shore of New York Harbor.Surveys were conducted at four locations: Cliffwood Beach in Aberdeen Township, Conaskonck Point in Union Beach, near the mouth of Pews Creek in Port Monmouth, and near the mouth of Many Mind Creek in Atlantic Highlands.As in years past, a 50-foot-long seine net, a horizontal nylon net with buoys on top and weights on the bottom, was dragged through shallow waters and pulled towards the shore. All aquatic creatures were identified, cataloged, and returned to the estuary.The volunteers counted well over 600 crabs in total at all sites surveyed.By seining the shore, watershed members were able to show how local waters are an important nursery. Many of the critters found included young-of-year (YOY) fish – juvenile fish that have hatched out of eggs this past spring. Schools of young herring were found in abundance at Cliffwood Beach, Port Monmouth, and Atlantic Highlands. The herring hatched out of eggs in freshwater portions of the estuary several weeks ago, and are now swimming towards saltier waters with the start of warm weather.Over 20 juvenile winter flounder, a flatfish, were also found at Atlantic Highlands. They averaged in size between two to three inches long. Their high density near the mouth of Many Mind Creek suggests the sandy shoreline is a nursery. As populations of winter flounder continue to decline in the Northeast, it’s important to detect these areas.Other signs of new life included pregnant silversides or spearing, and clusters of snail eggs at all four sites. Exposed Horseshoe crabs were also found in wet sand at Cliffwood Beach.Seahorses were among the diverse marine life discovered by volunteers dragging a net through local waters on Seine the Bay Day.The most unique discovery of the day, however, was hauling in an adult seahorse at Port Monmouth. Yes, they really do exist in Sandy Hook Bay. The Northern lined seahorse is our native species. They often can be found clinging to sea grasses, pilings, or other floating objects in shallow waters foraging for tiny shellfish. Sadly, due to the loss of many sea grass beds, seahorse populations are lower around Sandy Hook Bay than in decades past.In addition to seining, volunteers surveyed the water for salinity, turbidity, and water temperature. Salinity readings were about 23 parts per thousand and water temperature averaged in the low to mid 70s F. Turbidity tests showed the water to be quite murky, especially at Atlantic Highlands, where volunteers could not even see their toes in less than one foot of water.No doubt, seining is a great way to gain an insight into the health of the near-shore environment where many people swim and enjoy the water. It provides a snap shot at what dwells along the edge of Sandy Hook Bay and Raritan Bay.Joe Reynolds is co-chair of the Bayshore Regional Watershed Council (www.restoreraritanbay.org) and a local naturalist. See the website for a full list of fish found at each site.last_img read more

Development of Lodging Area at Fort Monmouth Advances

first_img• A change in density not to exceed 12 units per acre, down from 13 units per acre. • Development of a 50-foot waterfront esplanade along Parker Creek with a 12-foot-wide walkway to coordinate with the adjacent Allison Hall riverfront promenade. The Allison Hall parcel will include hotel, office, and retail. The two parcels are intended to complement each other, according to FMERA documents. • All townhouses will be rear-loaded with garages and driveways in the rear yards. • Construction of roadways, alleys or drive-aisles connecting Signal Avenue to serve the townhomes. • Two buildings on the site are on the National Register of Historic Places and therefore cannot be demolished. Somerset plans to rehabilitate both to accommodate the state’s 20 percent affordable housing mandate. • A community clubhouse, pool, fitness center, athletic facilities and other recreational amenities will be permitted as accessory uses. “This redevelopment is happening whether we like it or not,” Coffey said. “We shouldn’t be afraid of that but we shouldn’t be over-burdened either. The faster the fort is developed the better it is for Oceanport. This is a clarion call to other developers.” The vote approved amendments to the redevelopment plan of what is known as the Lodging Area along Parker Creek in Oceanport, where Somerset Development LLC plans to build 144 market rate townhomes and 36 affordable housing units on 15 acres. Prior to voting in the affirmative, Oceanport Mayor Jay Coffey delivered a lengthy analysis and statement that began with him acknowledging, “This is a rather contentious item for Oceanport that will have a substantial impact.” “The fort will be different than the rest of Oceanport, just like Monmouth Racetrack is different from the rest of Oceanport,” he said, adding that fort redevelopment in the borough will have four liquor licenses, a fitness center complex and more. The property was first offered for sale by FMERA in December 2016 with bids received in March 2017. Somerset, formerly of Lakewood and now head-quartered in Holmdel, was the highest ranked proposer in compliance with FMERA’s overall reuse plan and will pay $17.5 million for the property. “This is an exciting projectfor the fort’s redevelopment infact, a once-in-a-generation typeproject,” Steadman said. “Realestate that has been off the gridfor 100 years so to speak, willcome roaring back, contributingmillions in tax dollars via a newand beautiful neighborhood forOceanport by a developer with agreat track record proposing anoutstanding housing communityalong the river.” FORT MONMOUTH – The next major residential development on Fort Monmouth, totaling up to 180 dwellings, is moving forward following a unanimous vote by members of the Fort Monmouth Economic Revitalization Authority (FMERA) May 23. Prior to the vote, the proposed amendments were reviewed by Oceanport officials including the borough engineer and members of the environmental commission, the planning board, the police department and emergency services. Highlights of the revised redevelopment scenario include: The next step in the process is for Somerset to prepare plans for review by the Oceanport Planning Board, said Bruce Steadman, FMERA executive director. “It’s an unfair burden on Oceanport, but Oceanport lost the battle on zoning with FMERA 10 years ago,” he said. “We have a difference of opinion on whether this is good or bad for Oceanport. I have a different view of what’s going on at the fort than the majority of my council.” Coffey recently announced he is running for reelection on an independent ticket this year. In support of his vote, Coffey cited “close to $2 million” in tax revenue for the borough from all redevelopment projects within its borders. “There isn’t one instance where fort properties sold for less than the assessment,” he said. “The impact on the school system is minimal. There will be school-age kids coming in with the rental units, but we do have room to absorb children due to declining enrollment. Affordable housing is the lay of the land and we have to deal with it.” He said new residents in those units will include the families of nurses, firefighters, cops and teachers. By Laura D.C. Kolnoski The 1,126-acre fort comprises portions of Eatontown, Oceanport and Tinton Falls. A total of 720 residential units is mandated within the 420-acre Oceanport section once the redevelopment of the former U.S. Army base is completed. Coffey said Oceanport will eventually absorb about 560 more residents. Somerset, owned by Ralph Zucker, bought and refurbished the former Bell Labs in Holmdel, now known as Bell Works. The firm estimates it will create approximately 231 temporary construction jobs and one permanent full- or part-time job by the project’s completion, or pay a penalty of $1,500 for each permanent job not created, as per FMERA rules.last_img read more

DV8: putting SA films on the map

first_img20 October 2003The emergence of new technologies and the creation of far-reaching distribution platforms have given rise to an increasing demand for films, particularly in Africa. South African film producers Jeremy Nathan and Joel Phiri have hatched an initiative to satisfy this growing demand.The pair formed the film company DV8 out of their desire to develop, produce, market and distribute African feature films on the continent and throughout the rest of the world.The company aims to facilitate the creation of a sustainable flow of films, not one-off events that become landmarks just for being made. Over the next three years, Dv8 plans to develop, produce and market 12 genuinely South African digital feature films.A maximum of US$10 000 will be spent on the development of each project. It is up to each producer/partner to secure the rights to the project within this budget, as well as produce at least three drafts of the script.The national broadcaster, SABC, will broadcast the films on southern African television. Should the films warrant a theatrical release, Ster-Kinekor will be responsible for release of the films in theatres, on DVD and video. First Hand Films, based in Zurich and Berlin, will handle the worldwide sales of the films.The first film produced was Good Mourning Max, a hilarious, fast-paced comedy about a village boy who tackles the big city armed with only a goat and the amazing ability to cry on cue.Production has started on the second film, Forgiveness, and a third film has already been selected.Forgiveness is being shot on location in Paternoster and Cape Town. It is written by Greg Latter and directed by Ian Gabriel. Internationally recognised South African actor Arnold Vosloo takes the lead role of Tertius Coetzee, a former apartheid cop who is psychologically tormented by the atrocities he committed in his past.Coetzee’s journey into Paternoster is the catalyst for a harrowing series of events that irrecoverably change the fate of the Grootboom family and the community in which they live.The producers are still looking for young, exciting writers and filmmakers around South Africa for the nine remaining films.SouthAfrica.info reporterlast_img read more

Nii Quaynor: the father of the African internet

first_imgAs the world celebrates the 25th anniversary of the World Wide Web which, as envisioned by its creator Tim Berners-Lee, was the revolutionary stepping stone in making internet technology more accessible to more people, it is often overlooked that Ghanaian engineer and science professor Nii Narku Quaynor was responsible for making sure Africa was part of that revolution.Wondered Who Pioneered Internet In Africa?Meet Ghanian Professor-Nii Narko Quaynor (Father of Internet In Africa) pic.twitter.com/H6FvJ3m0GW—Footprint To Africa (@Footprint2Afric) November12, 2015Quaynor, an engineering and computer science graduate from the University of New York and Dartmouth College in the United Kingdom, returned to his home country to head the first computer science department at the University of Cape Coast in Accra in 1977.During the early 1990s, as internet technology developed across the world, he began spearheading the establishment of Africa’s first internet connectivity. He did this through setting up key organisations, including the African Network Operators Group, as well introducing Value Added Networks, Swift (global financial telecommunications) and other burgeoning commerce technology systems. These were all integral in making the internet more accessible and above all, more secure.Quaynor was the first African to be elected to the board of the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (Icann), a leading international organisation dedicated to keeping internet technology “secure, safe and interoperable”. Between 2000 and 2004, he served as the Icann director for the African region, ensuring that technology advancements made in the United States and Europe were also available to Africa.Prof. Nii Quaynor wins prestigious ICANN award pic.twitter.com/PaFaJyc0xm—Tasha Lamptey Law (@TashaLampteyLaw) July 2,2015Quaynor has attributed his success as an African technologist to the forward- thinking of those he calls “techno-liberation” leaders. These include Nelson Mandela, who understood how technology could be used to advance the socio-economic development of the continent, particularly highly specialised technological skills that contribute to an evolving modern supply chain.Inducted into the Internet Society’s Hall of Fame in 2013, he joined World Wide Web pioneers such as Jon Postel (the father of the ‘Internet Standard’ of global computing protocols) and Robert Kahn, the inventor of the standardised IP website address language. The Internet Society is one of the oldest and most respected global organisations tasked with promoting the “open development, evolution and use of (internet technology) to all the people of the world”.Quaynor won the 2007 Jonathan B Postel Service Award for his work in putting Africa on the global internet protocol standard, as well as for advancing connectivity development on the continent. On receiving the award, he vowed to continue furthering the continent’s human resource strengths, especially in developing more computer engineers, with an overall objective of “strengthening education and research in network technologies in Africa”.He has also been a member of the United Nations Secretary-General Advisory Group on internet technology, as well as a chairperson of the Organisation of African Unity’s Internet Task Force.Currently serving as the commissioner for the Global Commission on Internet Governance, he ensures online security remains a priority in advancing connectivity in Africa and other untapped regions of the world.Internet In Africa – Viral InfoGraphic | https://t.co/kCEtz4Sc8z pic.twitter.com/ZMKOmyBCEz—myMpango (@myMpango) January 31,2016While Africa represents between 9.4% and 10% of the total global internet population (“users”), the technology penetration – percentage of Africans using the internet – has gradually increased over the last 15 years: 28.1% compared to the global 52.5%, according to Internet World Stats)Africa must not miss out on the enormous opportunities in rapid advancements of technology, he stresses, particularly mobile data and wireless technologies. “Africa (will) miss a great development opportunity in much the same way Africa lost on the industrial revolution, unless serious and truly committed efforts are made by Africa to address the rapid expansion on the internet-user gap between Africa and industrialised countries,” he told New African Magazine in 2014.Source: AFKInsiderSouthAfrica.info reporterWould you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?See: Using SouthAfrica.info materiallast_img read more
