Headed up by the one-time Duquesne scoring machine, AKA Baron “BB” Flenory, the once-nationally recognized basketball program called home their favorite sons to reunite on the court once again. As I previously stated in an earlier article, as we celebrate the remembrance of the Pitt basketball program…and understandably so, there was a time if you didn’t have a ticket to a Duquesne hoop game you were left on the outside looking in.Featured here at halftime of a recent Duke game at the Palumbo Center are the legends of the game.

To that point, Duquesne University has not missed a beat doing the right thing. After various ceremonies for Mr. Cooper on and around campus including the naming of a building, the university and the athletic department will once again host the Chuck Cooper Classic Game on Saturday, Feb. 16 at noon at the A.J.

Hibernian midfielder holds strong desire to represent Jamaica

first_imgScottish Championship Hibernian FC holding midfielder, Marvin Bartley, says he can bring stability and balance to the Jamaica national senior men’s team in their pursuit of a spot at the FIFA 2018 World Cup Finals in Russia.”As a holding midfielder, I can bring stability and balance into the centre of the park, allowing more attack-minded midfielders to do their business – although I’m not too shy in getting involved in an attack,” Bartley, who transferred from Leyton Orient FC in England to Hibernian in Scotland last summer, told The Gleaner.”I am also fit and athletic enough to cover a lot of ground in a game, allowing me to provide cover for fullbacks that like to push forward. But, I do believe that talk is cheap, and I’m more than happy for those watching to decide what I bring to the team should I receive a call-up,” he added.”With my current form being good and my fitness level high, I am more than ready to pull on the gold jersey and play for my family’s country,” Bartley assured.Born in Reading, EnglandThe 6″ 3′ (1.9m) player was born in Reading, England, but has Jamaican roots with his mother born in St Ann and father from Manchester.”I have had my Jamaican passport since 2012 and have been available to represent Jamaica ever since. It has long been an ambition of mine to play for the country, ever since I started my career as a footballer. I’ve had conversations on a few occasions since then, but due to me not feeling I was in the best form possible or being injured I’ve yet to represent Jamaica. But this is something I hope will change in the not too distant future as I feel in prime condition and believe I am playing well,” Bartley said confidently.”I’ve followed the national team’s results ever since being a young boy due to my family all being from the country. This interest was obviously taken up a notch or 10 due to the ’98 World Cup team. Even last year I found myself watching how the side got on in the Gold Cup as they reached the final, which was particularly impressive considering they had also competed in the Copa America earlier that summer too,” the 29-year-old reflected.Bartley says he visits Jamaica regularly and was here less than a year ago.”This has only helped to strengthen my desire to compete at international level for the Jamaican national team,” he emphasised.Bartley is yet to score for Hibs in 19 appearances in all competitions this season. He also represented Bumham, Hayes, Didcol Town, Hampton and Richmond Borough, Bournemouth and Burnley.last_img read more

“Georgetown needs to get their act together” – GAM President

first_img…cites too many “political actors” in Local Govt adminFollowing the many conflicts within the municipality of the City of Georgetown, President of the Guyana Association of Municipalities (GAM), Carwyn Holland, is urging the Mayor and City Councillors (M&CC) to get their act together and win back the trust of their constituents.“If there is a negative vibe coming from the capital city, you have that same negative vibe being responded to by people in other constituencies or municipalities. They will feel threatened and they will want to guard against that, then the position of trust will be undermined for their local representatives and then it becomes difficult. So, I am only praying that sooner than later all the CouncillorsGAM President Carwyn Hollandof the Georgetown Municipality can come together and work in harmony and focus on the greater good,” Holland said during an interview.Holland, who is also the outgoing Mayor of Linden, noted that they are all cognisant of the responsibilities of the M&CC of Georgetown but also explained that they need to put personalities aside and start taking back control of the capital city.In response to the fiasco during the recent Mayor and Deputy Mayor elections, Holland said it is his belief that Councillors should not be made to tow party lines, rather they should exercise their own judgement for the betterment of their constituencies.“What I find affecting the system is when parties take charge and give directions as to how things should go and there is where it will be infringing on the rights and freedoms of the local authority or the Local Government Organs where persons have to follow party line and party instructions,” he noted.“Too many political actors”Holland said GAM has taken note of the amount of “political actors” within the Local Government administration, indicating that it is a cause for concern. He explained because of the political atmosphere, technocrats are no longer technocrats in the truest sense since they now feel the need to pledge loyalty to a political party.He further related that this affects the service delivery to the constituents often resulting in conflicts within the municipalities.“So, persons feel even if it affects the community once it’s in line with their political preference they have to go that is wrong, that is how you are having a lot of conflicts within municipalities where administrators are making political divisionsGeorgetown Mayor Patricia Chase Greenand taking political stance and that shouldn’t be,” he noted.“The reason why you hire administrators is to provide a service. So, if their service is not to community, their service is to party then I have a problem with that, I have a serious problem with that. That is playing out in many municipalities right now and its affecting the system because you can make decisions from now till forever, once those who have to carry out the decision are not carrying their weight, once they are not putting aside politics and focusing only on providing that service to communities, I believe we will always have problems in the system,” Holland explained.Holland posited it is not surprising that the Local Government system is plagued by so many issues since local democracy was absent for a number of years. He noted that because of that lapse, the system remains a work in progress.“We have a revisit of the (Municipal Districts and Councils Act Chapter) 28:01. We are calling for it from the GAM level, several mayors have been calling for 28:01 to be updated because there are several aspects of it which are conflicting and there are also several aspects of the laws which are outdated and there are also several aspects which needs better clarification,” he noted.The GAM President said there is a need for greater public awareness so that citizens can understand the system. He added that GAM will be embarking on public education campaigns within the various municipalities.last_img read more

Gor inch closer to CAF Cup quarters after beating Yanga

first_imgGeorge ‘Blackberry’ Odhiambo sent K’Ogalo ahead with the quickest goal, nodding lowly past Tanzanian goalkeeper Rostad Jehu who parried the ball inside the near right side of the post.This is after the Kenyan winger received a well measured cross from Samuel Onyango.Jacques Tuyisenge added the second goal after shooting from cross range after an indirect free-kick inside the box following a school boy blunder from the Tanzanian custodian who handled the ball immediately after releasing it.However, 14 minutes into the second half, Tanzania pulled one back after Gor keeper Boniface Oluoch parried the ball at his near left foot following a well taken 30 yards free-kick.Deus Kaseke found the back of the net when he rushed to connect the rebound after Oluoch spilled it.Gor regained he lead after five minutes thanks to skipper Harun Shakava who easily tapped the ball home after the Yanga defense failed to clear the corner kick.Oluoch was at it again, this time with a careless mistake that gifted Yanga a second goal in the 81st minute after he failed to handle the ball that fell in front of him for substitute Abdalla Shaibu to put the ball in between Oluoch’s leg and pull one back for the Tanzanians.Gor were able to hold on and pick the crucial three points that shoot them temporarily on top of the Group D standing with eight points, awaiting the USM Alger versus Rayon Sports encounter.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Gor team posing for photo.PHOTO/Raymond MakhayaNAIROBI, Kenya, July 29 – Kenyan Premier League champions Gor Mahia inched closer to making historic milestone in reaching the CAF Confederation Cup quarter-finals after picking a crucial 3-2 victory away to Yong Africans (Yanga) of Tanzania in a match hosted at the National Stadium in Dar es Salaam on Sunday.This comes a week after Gor won 4-0 at home when the two sides last met at the Kasarani Stadium to see the Tanzanian champions languish at the bottom of the log with just a single point.last_img read more

Tweepi: Twitter Management for the Spreadsheet Afficianado

first_imgA Comprehensive Guide to a Content Audit Facebook is Becoming Less Personal and More Pro… The Dos and Don’ts of Brand Awareness Videos Guide to Performing Bulk Email Verification Related Posts center_img Tags:#social networks#twitter#web If you fully realize the value of social media, then you’re constantly trying to parse, scrub, clean and otherwise organize your Twitter account. It’s a never-ending battle and often a steep, uphill one at that, but Tweepi can shift your effort into high gear – the geeky way.Tweepi lets you know right off the bat that it may not be pretty and, as its tag line says, it’s still “very much a beta”, but boy does it do everything we have spent way too much time trying to do with other desktop clients and the Twitter website itself.The “geekier, faster way to manage Twitter”, as it calls itself, offers four separate utilities, all of them “geeky”: Follow, Flush, Reciprocate and Cleanup.We tried out the Seesmic Web contact manager recently, and while we were impressed by it, Tweepi might win just by the sheer number of times the word “geeky” appears on the site. Tweepi is like taking all of your Twitter friends, importing them and a whole slew of stats about how they use Twitter into Excel, and then incorporating interactivity. We may not agree with all of the functions of Tweepi, but to each their own. Flush, for example, gets rid of users you follow who don’t follow you back. Depending on what you’re using Twitter for, this may be useless. If you’re looking for information, not conversation, then don’t bother. Reciprocate, on the other hand, “helps you find all the users that follow you, but you do not follow back” and can help you make sure you don’t fall on the other end of that Flush utility. The two functions that really caught our attention, however, are Cleanup and Follow. Cleanup will show you all of the people you follow and let you sort through them by any number of criteria, from their link-to-tweet ratio to the last time they tweeted. In all, it offers 16 separate columns that you can toggle on your view.Tweepi also gives you a set of preset targets to organize user lists. You can find “Twitterers who discuss much”, which compares the number of messages they receive with replies they send, or “Avoid linkless ramblings”, which sorts people you follow according to their link-to-Tweet ratio. If you’re nearing the follow limit, you can clear out inactive users or if you’re looking to get the word out there, you can look for people with “Higher reach or influence”.The Follow feature lets you enter a username and look at all the people following that user, again with all of the sorting capabilities we just mentioned. So, if I’m looking for other people who are interested in cycling in Austin, for example, I might put in @mellowjohnnys, the Twitter account for Lance Armstrong’s local bike shop, and see who else is following them. It’s a different take on the usual process, which more often lets you look at who a particular user is following rather than who is following them.Since it’s still in beta, we’re actually hoping that the Follow feature gets flipped around the other way too, at some point. @RWW, for example, has over a million followers. It is only following 1,486, however. We’d much rather look at who an account like that one is following than who is following it. If you’ll excuse us, we have some cleaning up to do. mike melansonlast_img read more
