Coach Stephen Kearney says classy five-eighth Foran is recovering from a quadriceps injury sustained in the Warriors’ 34-12 win over Gold Coast a week-and-a-half earlier.A bye week had given the Kiwis international extra time to recuperate and a late call will be made on his availability.”We’ll give him until as late as possible, probably until the captain’s run on Thursday,” Kearney said.”But he’s progressing and we’re hopeful he’ll be OK.”Foran ended months of speculation about his future in April by signing a three-year deal with the Bulldogs.Meanwhile, Kearney confirmed the Warriors won’t seek a replacement this season for departing assistant coach Steve McNamara.Former England coach McNamara was granted an early release after being appointed head coach of Super League club the Catalans Dragons.Kearney believes remaining assistants Andrew McFadden and Stacey Jones are sufficient to see out the campaign.Club great Jones will be the lone attack coach, having previously shared the role with McNamara.last_img read more

Polota-Nau focused on Wallabies

first_imgPolota-Nau is one of six Western Force representatives in a 34-man Wallabies squad who are still coming to terms with the Australian Rugby Union’s decision to axe them from Super Rugby. Although RugbyWA has launched an appeal in the Supreme Court of NSW, the thought that the Force could cease to exist next year has impacted players privately. But worrying about things out of his control is something Polota-Nau has made clear he cannot afford to do, for if he is not 100 per cent committed to the task of upsetting the All Blacks, then he would be doing a disservice to those alongside him in a gold jersey. “I’ve managed to encapsulate that [emotion] but also move it to the side,” Polota-Nau told Fairfax Media.”I’m fully focused on this. The last thing I need is any external circumstances to interfere because with the preparation I can’t be individually analysing my emotions when there’s a team goal this Saturday. I’ve just moved on from that. “What supersedes it is we’ve got a test this week. There’s external circumstances that are going around. Adam [Coleman] and Dane [Haylett-Petty] spoke about it on Monday and nailed it on the head. We’ve just got to move on with the job.” The 32-year-old, who does not have a contract for next season with the Force, said he was considering all his options. He did, however, indicate he wanted to stay in the west despite the likelihood the club will be booted from Super Rugby next year. “I’m hoping I can stick around,” Polota-Nau said. “I’ll have to reassess for the time being because at the moment I’m glad the injunction is there but I can’t really focus on it now. “Once we get away from these tests I’ll discuss it then.” Polota-Nau said the fitness sessions he teammates completed over the past month have been the hardest he has ever encountered in his professional career. The Wallabies may have won just one of their past 16 matches against the All Blacks dating back to 2011, but Polota-Nau truly believes the pain of recent training will be worth it. “It hurt a lot but it’ll be even better once we come out victorious,” Polota-Nau said. “That’s the train of thought coming into it. “Those gorilla walks turned out to be quite the challenge. The pain will be worth it with end goal of hopefully raising that Bledisloe trophy. “I can’t wait to get out there because I’m more than confident in my ability.” Polota-Nau is likely to be the Wallabies’ starting hooker on Saturday, having taken over from Stephen Moore in the first two Tests of the year against Fiji and Scotland. Moore was brought into Australia’s starting XV to take on Italy but it was in this match the Wallabies had some noticeable problems at scrum-time. They can ill-afford to put in a sub-par performance this time up against a formidable All Blacks front row looking to prove a point after underperforming in the recent British and Irish Lions series. Polota-Nau said Australia’s forwards were aiming to get on the front foot and assert early dominance at the set piece. “Watching their previous encounters against the Lions, it’s no mucking about,” Polota-Nau said.”They like to get the ball in and out straight away. Hopefully we can create some disruption there. Even the lineouts, we’ve got to be eager to get there before they do.” Photo by: MATT KING/ GETTY IMAGES Caption: Tatafu Polota-Nau of the Wallabies attempts to break away from Scotland’s Jonny Gray in Sydney in June.last_img read more

The IFAB modifies the rules of soccer: hands, penalties, VAR …

first_img-Yellow cards shown during the match (including overtime) will not be taken into account in the penalty shoot-out. If two yellow cards are shown to the same player, one during the match and the other during the penalty shoot-out, it will appear in the referee’s record as two warnings, but not as expulsion.-In the event that the goalkeeper and executor of a penalty kick violate the rules of the game at the same time, the shooter will be penalized.VAR Referees-A single television signal will be necessary to carry out a review based solely on the VAR.-As long as the incident to be reviewed is subject to subjective considerations, the referee should review it on the monitor at the foot of the field, that is, analyze the repetitions in the review area.The IFAB has also wanted to clarify other aspects of the regulations, such as the player who does not respect the minimum distance of four meters away when the referee signals the ball to the ground for an opponent will be punished with a yellow card. There will be no penalty if in goal kick or free kick, the goalkeeper lifts the ball to a teammate and the latter returns it to him with his head or chest for the goalkeeper to pick it up. Of course, the service must be repeated and there would be no card unless the infringement occurred repeatedly.The future of the RegulationThe International Board clarifies that for the coming season it will study the regulations for the offside to promote more offensive football. They also work to prevent concussions and foster a fair play attitude on the field of play.VarThe Internatinal Board also throws a dart at competitions that do not follow the VAR protocol and have reinterpreted it. An example of this is the Premier League, in which there is little use of the screen for subjective plays. “They admitted certain inconsistencies in the application of the VAR Protocol by the organizers of some top-level competitions. However, some of those organizers have reported that they will adhere to the Protocol for its uniform application next season,” the circular states. .On the other hand, the IFAB pointed out that access to the audo of the VAR talks cannot be facilitated (in Spain this season they have no longer been provided due to a warning that the IFAB has already made, but if other competitions such as the Libertadores make public many of these conversations). In this way, the rulers of the laws of the game urge the Federations to improve the existing communication methods in order to better understand the procedure of this tool. The International Board, body that establishes which are the rules of soccer and from which all the competitions of the world are governed, has published the changes in the regulations for the 2020-2021 season. Above all, these are clarifications to the regulations already in force and which were expanded for this season. New football laws usually go into effect June 1, but Due to the coronavirus pandemic and that soccer is stopped, all leagues and tournaments will be able to apply them from that date, even if the campaign belongs to the 2019-20 season or for the following season. One of the concepts on which the most emphasis has worked for the new regulation has been the clarification of the concept of the hands.Clarification of hand concept-In the event that the attacker touches the ball by hand in a fortuitous manner, it will only carry a sanction if the play ends immediately in a goal or on a manifest occasion of a goal in favor of the attacker or his team. For example: If after touching the ball with your hand, the ball travels a very short distance or there are very few passes.-In order to clearly determine the infringement by hand, The limit of the arm is established at the lower point of the armpit.-The infringement by voluntary hand by a defense will be considered as such when determining an offside.Velasco Carballo, Clos Gómez and Undiano Mallenco, a couple of months ago made an arbitration talk for the whole world of soccer in which they explained the situations in which they had to whistle their hands (volunteers, unnatural position or occupying a space, arm / hand at shoulder height or above and attacking hands that generate a goal or a clear opportunity to score) and in which they do not. In some of them, they admitted that the regulation was not clear.Shooting and penalty shootouts-If the goalkeeper infringes the rules of the game, but the ball does not enter the goal or bounce off the posts or the crossbar, the shot will not be repeated unless the infringement by the goalkeeper clearly influenced the executor.-If the goalkeeper is sanctioned and the shot is repeated, the goalkeeper will be warned for a first offense (during the match or on penalties) and will be warned with a yellow card in case of more offenses.last_img read more

first_imgThe president of the French Tennis Federation (FFT), Bernard Giudicelli, He does not rule out that Roland Garros, postponed to September because of the coronavirus pandemic, be performed behind closed doors. The head of the French federation assures this Sunday in an interview with the weekly “Journal du Dimanche” that this plan would enable sustaining a minimum of a part of the financial mannequin. “Organizing it behind closed doors would enable sustaining a part of the financial mannequin, tv rights and sponsorships, “mentioned Giudicelli.The French event is an financial engine for nationwide tennis and represents about 80% of the federation’s revenues, based on the weekly. Solely broadcasting rights account for greater than a 3rd of the competitors’s turnover. On the opportunity of delaying the Roland Garros from September 20 introduced to the 27 he mentioned that “it could not change a lot” and that it is nonetheless too early to precisely decide the timetable. In any case, the FFT president pointed out that they do not rule out any choice and that “giving precedence” to one of many options being thought-about can be “getting misplaced in conjectures” because of the lack of visibility. “Plenty of issues can occur round us. We keep targeted on what we’ve to do, provide a event in the very best situations “, Indian.last_img read more

Tusker part ways with head coach Nsimbe

first_img0Shares0000Tusker FC head coach George ‘Best’ Nsimbe. Photo/RAYMOND MAKHAYANAIROBI, Kenya, Dec 1- Failure to defend at least one of their twin titles from 2016 has caused George ‘best’ Nsimbe his job at Tusker FC with the 11-time Kenyan premier League champions reaching the decision to part ways with him after one season.Tusker FC chairman Dan Aduda has confirmed that they are in the market to look for a new head coach with the rest of the technical bench remaining intact. “We had a meeting after the final game of the season and we informed him that he will be free to venture into another challenge. To be honest it was the only sensible decision to make because the results were not good,” Aduda said.Tusker finished sixth with 50 points, a massive 24 behind champions Gor Mahia.Nsimbe’s goose seemed to have been cooked from early on when he was suspended following comments he made on having overage players in his squad, a reason he said made their performance inconsistent.“We had targets as a club and he also came in with his own targets. Both were not met. This decision is purely because of performance,” Aduda further alluded. Photo/RAYMOND MAKHAYAThe comments did not go down well with a core of the players and he was asked by the management to step aside. He wasn’t in charge for the final seven games of the season, a clear sign that his days at the Ruaraka based club were numbered.“We had targets as a club and he also came in with his own targets. Both were not met. This decision is purely because of performance,” Aduda further alluded.He has also confirmed the club has already received several applications for the vacant post, with current assistant coach Francis Baraza who joined the club in January from Chemelil Sugar also said to be in line for the job.“We just want a good coach. It doesn’t matter whether local or foreign but we will get the best. We need to get the club back on top,” the chairman added.Nsimbe’s reign at the club didn’t have the best of starts. His tenure started with the club performing dismally in the CAF Champions League, losing to lowly Mauritian side AS Port Louis in the preliminary round.With Tusker dumped out of continental football, he hoped to bounce back in the league but his start was equally disastrous, losing the first two ties against newly promoted Nzoia Sugar and Thika United.Others are Clifford Alwanga, 2014 KPL player of the year Anthony Ndolo, George Mandela, Noah Wafula, Martin Kiiza, Danson Kago and Luis Tera Misiko have also been shown the door. Photo/RAYMOND MAKHAYAMeanwhile, the club has already begun its rebuilding process with a whooping nine players released over performance based reasons. Moses Ndawula and Victor Ndinya, both signed in the beginning of the season lead the list.Others are Clifford Alwanga, 2014 KPL player of the year Anthony Ndolo, George Mandela, Noah Wafula, Martin Kiiza, Danson Kago and Luis Tera Misiko have also been shown the door.Aduda has also revealed they will be downscaling the squad to 23 in a bid to cut costs and also keep the team at a manageable size.“This season we had a squad of 30 players because we had anticipated to go far in the Champions League and we needed a robust squad. But now since we will only be playing in local competitions and also the need to reduce the wage bill,” Aduda affirmed.Immediate former Ulinzi Stars striker Stephen Waruru is said to be among the first names to land in Ruaraka but Aduda has neither confirmed nor denied the rumors, stating he will have a full brief next week when he meets the technical bench and club CEO Charles Obiny.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Track & Field To Compete At Messersmith Invitational

first_img Heat Sheets “It will be good to compete at the same venue as the conference meet against some conference foes to see where we match up,” Bennett added. For the men’s team, Bas Van Leersum (Zaandam, The Netherlands) came in sixth in the 200 meters and third in the 400 meters in his last outing and is looking forward to racing on the same oval that will host the upcoming MVC Championship as he currently ranks in the top seven in the MVC at both distances. Schedule The Drake University track and field teams travel to Cedar Falls, Iowa, Saturday to compete in the Mark Messersmith Invitational hosted by UNI. Action for the Bulldogs begins at 10 a.m. inside the UNI Dome. “We’re looking to get another good strong effort in this week at UNI,” said co-interim head coach Dan Hostager. “Training has been going well and it will be good to see some other MVC programs.” “It’s tremendous to get in the facility and get a feel for how it will be during the conference meet with the flow of the event and familiarizing yourself with the layout,” Hostager said. Story Links Many of the competitors will also be aiming to lower their times to qualify for the more selective upcoming meets like next weekend’s Frank Sevigne Husker Invitational in Lincoln, Neb., and the Meyo Invite in South Bend, Ind. Print Friendly Version The Bulldogs are getting into the full swing of the indoor season after competing in Columbia, Mo., last week. Rai Ahmed- Green (Irvine, Calif.) continued her successful streak, finishing fifth in the 400 meters as well as helping the 4×400-meter relay team to a third-place finish. Taryn Rolle (Nassau, The Bahamas) also won the triple jump again with a 40-8.25 leap that was just 1.25 inches off of her personal best and ranks as the best in the MVC this season. Hostager echoed that sentiment as the Bulldogs’ distance runners test out the turns of the UNI-Dome track. The Bulldogs will compete against the host, UNI, as well as Indiana State, South Dakota State and Wisconsin-Milwaukee. “We’re right at the midpoint of the season and we’re focused on shifting gears for the second half of the year and asking those athletes to continue to step up,” said co-interim head coach LaRon Bennett.last_img read more

Cisco in the Core: Preparing for the Next Generation Internet

first_imgToday, Cisco announced the CSR-3 product, a game-changing system to managing the network core. But for CEO John Chambers, the news is about market transition forces and being ready for the next generation of the Internet. The company invested $1.6 billion research and development in CRS-3 to be ready for the next phase of market growth that merges video, cloud, and mobile trajectories. When asked, he said when his team looks out 3-5 years that network growth may be 300 to 500%. Cisco is investing that another revolution is on the way for consumer access and enterprise productivity.Getting a handle on scale Cisco’s fabric offers network speed never seen before.According it’s’ own estimates the CRS-3 could offer bandwidth for:Every man woman and child in China the ability to make a simultaneous video call.All movies ever made to be downloaded in 4 minutes (if you had enough disk to store them).1 GB link to every household in San Francisco.Virtualization and Cloud: Moving from Plumber to Business ArchitectureThe network has many touch points. Chambers said that this has been moving Cisco from being a technology partner to a trusted business partner for nearly all its enterprise and service provider accounts. He views this as a tipping point in how Cisco engages customers and innovates. To that end, the major market transformation underway in the cloud, and Cisco has positioned its network, including the CRS-3 to offer tight linkage between data center and virtualized services. Chambers mentioned “It’s all about the cloud, the CRS-3 family talks directly to the UCS in the data center.” To that end, it’s nice to consider the end-to-end network being prepared for the connections in the data center, especially for physically distributed environments that benefit from fast links between them. Chambers continued: “We kept our partners VMware and EMC in mind in this solution, to be ready to fulfill our vision in the data center”. Here it is a summary diagram on CRS-3 connects data centers.

We are testing the 100GB interface in the labs and real production environments.”Chambers mentioned that Cisco’s goal is to have long-term partners and to never compete with pervice provider. With a company like AT&T, Cisco’s product goals are to help be ready for where things are headed, to be there when it’s needed. Cisco does not want to be the bottleneck for the Internet.He continued “Service providers are our partners, if our goal is to bring this technology to everyone in the world, we must work in a tight fashion and follow the market transitions with them”Q&A Some of the best parts of this dialog was the question and answer session, a few excerpts below show the depth of thinking Cisco is moving forward with the intelligent network.Q: How does this impact the mobile data flow?A: The team was asked about how this innovation impacts consumers and the mobile data flow. Chambers added, “As a consumer, I want any video any time. To share it on any device in the living room and to bring it with me when I’m on the go. The network has an important role in enabling that future”Cambron spoke from AT&T’s goals with this technology “It provides a single network design for around the globe. Particularly important for important customers who are using private networks and deploying mobile applications. A common network design that is highly video centric is central to our business”Q: Is Cisco an on open vs. closed company, will core innovations from CSR-3 be open source?A: Chambers responded “Interoperability is one thing we don’t debate in Cisco. We believe we need to bring together all of these protocols into one network. We will of course be an open architecture.”Q: What do you think about Google’s service provide announcement?A: Chambers responded “Google is a great company. We love anyone who adds loads to networks. We think the question here is how do we find the “and” here and find ways to build load and also built great networks with the right partners.”Q: Why is Cisco building in silicon? A: Chambers was excited to talk about how important silicon was to the company in the products. “Cisco’s investments in ASICS has been a key part of many of the core products. The reason that Cisco does our own, is that silicon ties all of the key components together. Cisco had to change the way its working style to have a collaborative team to build this next generation of silicon.”Cisco is in a unique position to see the future of bandwidth better than anyone.

Migrants flee amidst violence in north Gujarat

first_imgMore than 5,000 migrant people working in factories as casual labourers and daily wage earners have fled fearing violent attacks on them amidst unabated incidents of violence targeting migrants in north Gujarat districts. The rape of a toddler by a migrant worker in a village in Sabarkantha district triggered the violent attacks on migrants working in factories and construction sites. Accused arrested The incident occurred on September 28, when a 14-month-old child was allegedly raped by a migrant worker who hailed from Bihar. Subsequently, the accused was arrested by the police, but this sparked off protests and violence against non-Gujarati-speaking migrants. Over the last few days, violence has broken out in six districts, in which many migrant labourers were targeted, the police said. As the migrants started fleeing, police launched a crackdown on miscreants and provided security in industrial units where migrants work. “We have detained 342 people and filed about 42 cases,” Gujarat’s DGP Shivanand Jha told a gathering of journalists, adding that extra police force had been deployed in sensitive areas to maintain the law and order situation.last_img read more
