Mark Urges Eagles to Fly over Algeria

first_imgFormer President of the Senate Senator David Mark has tasked the Super Eagles of Nigeria not let anything to chance in their World Cup Qualifying match against Algeria on Saturday .Senator Mark said the Eagles new squad look very promising but reminded them that the new spirit should manifest in victory over their Algerian counterparts.Speaking when former African Queen of the Tracks Mary Onyali led Nigeria Olympic Fund Management committee visited him in Abuja yesterday, Senator Mark urged the Super Eagles to prove that Nigeria is truly the giant of Africa in all ramifications. According to Mark : ” We have all the talents . All we need to do is to harness the talents to make them effective and positively productive. We just have no excuse not to qualify for the World Cup with the abundant human and material resources “.On the 2020 Russia Olympics, Senator Mark said the antidote to the nation’s poor outing in the past is early preparation, promising to do every thing possible to make sports an integral part of our national life.He said sports should as a matter of deliberate policy be a strategic cardinal part of our life because besides sports nothing else unites us a people.Senator Mark acknowledges that sports requires huge investments beyond government funding . He therefore urged corporate organizations to help develop sports as part of their corporate-social responsibility .Earlier, the Technical Director of Nigeria Olympic management fund Mary Onyali said the organisation was borne out of the need to raise funds, facilities and train Nigerian Athletes to compete and win medals for the nation at international meets.The former African Queen of the tracks said she is passionate about the nation’s athletes winning laurels for the nation saying that sports have gone beyond mere entertainment to being a yardstick to measure a country’s global rating and respect .Onyali requested governments at all levels to provide enabling environment for sports development in Nigeria stressing that many of the youths involves in vices would be captured through sports.The Chief Executive officer of the Nigeria Olympic management fund, Mr.Olajide Fashikun explained that the organisation will help promote sports and discover talents for international meets and ultimately curb the syndrome of late preparations for local and international competitions.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more


first_imgA new funding programme of €15m to facilitate the participation of children with special educational needs in pre-school education is a hugely welcome announcement made in today’s budget according to Avril McMonagle, Manager of Donegal County Childcare.She says that for the first time, this funding will enable equality of access for children with special educational needs in mainstream early childhood services – something that has long been a problem in Donegal. In addition, the introduction of 2 weeks statutory paternity leave from September next year is also a positive step forward for fathers.However, Ms McMonagle cautioned that the announcement of a second free pre-school year for children – although going in the right direction, is not the most targeted means of supporting working families at a time when no earlier supports are in place. She said: “Although the initial optics of this measure are undoubtedly positive, as a labour activation measure to assist women in particular, it does little to help with the poverty trap some working parents with young children currently find themselves in as reported by the Donegal County Childcare Indecon report on Supporting Working Families.“In the absence of an extension to maternity leave or income relief on childcare costs, a second free pre-school year would only be beneficial to this cohort of parents if children were born aged 3 years.“Unfortunately the glaring gap between when maternity leave ends when a child is 6 months old and when the free pre-school entitlement begins at three years old – falls far short of meaningful supports for working parents which are so critically needed.“The early childcare care and education scheme is extremely limited in that it only provides three free hours per day for 38 weeks per year leaving full time working parents with a significant cost burden for the remainder. As there is already a culture of sending children to school aged four – especially in rural Donegal where schools require enrolment numbers to retain pupil teacher ratios. As this will still present the most cost effective measure for hard pressed working parents, the additional year is unlikely to have much of an impact.There is also a huge question around the capacity of current services in Donegal to physically facilitate a second year in existing premises without a capital fund to build extensions to current premises. “Of particular concern is that this measure will force childcare providers in Donegal to move away from providing childcare services for children under 3 years old and move towards the more cost efficient provision for older children only. This may create accessibility problems and further force parents towards the unregulated childcare market.”Additional Information … Childcare Budget AnnouncementsDCYA 1.1 billion for childcare package• Extension of the ECCE scheme- all children from 3 years to 5.5 years or until they start school• A range of quality measures including audits, inspections, training and increased capitation levels• 15m for children with SEN to access ECCE• 8,000 additional places for CCS• 3m to deliver School Age Childcare (delivered in existing school buildings)• €5 increase in child benefit• 2 weeks paid paternity leave from September 2016.BUDGET 2016: DONEGAL CHILDCARE GROUP BOSS EXPRESSES CONCERNS was last modified: October 13th, 2015 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:budget 2016childcaredonegallast_img read more

Developing SA’s rugby coaches

first_img12 July 2013The South African Rugby Union (Saru) on Thursday launched its Footprint Programme in Mthatha with the help of Springboks Siya Kolisi, Adriaan Strauss, Trevor Nyakane, Duane Vermeulen and Pierre Spies, Springboks assistant coaches and members of the Springbok Women’s team.Launched at a Saru Coaching Symposium in rural Transkei, a two-day event jointly arranged by Saru and the Eastern Cape Department of Sports, Recreation, Arts and Culture, the programme aims to deliver the latest rugby coaching techniques and skills to all corners of South Africa.On Wednesday, 50 coaches from the Transkei Rugby Union, a sub-union of the Border Rugby Union, attended the symposium, which included a workshop presentation and a practical demonstration coaching session by the three Springbok assistant coaches and Springbok players Kolisi, Strauss, Spies, Vermeulen and Nyakane. They were joined by Mandisa Williams, the Springbok Sevens Women’s captain.PresentationRassie Erasmus, the Saru General Manager for High Performance, delivered a presentation on Wednesday to eager coaches at the Walter Sisulu University, while Springbok assistant coaches, Johann van Graan, Ricardo Loubscher and John McFarland, using the Springboks, demonstrated to the coaches how to master the basic technical techniques in areas such as tackling, scrumming, lineout play and the breakdown.Erasmus, a former Springbok captain and provincial rugby coach, said the Footprint programme is designed to assist coaches in even the most remote parts of the vast South African platteland.“This programme aims to assist the coaches to teach and apply the proper coaching techniques in the technical aspects of the game.“Players in the rural areas have the natural skill, flair and the ability but they lack the technical skills which are needed in areas such as scrums, lineouts and the breakdown,” Erasmus said.Web-based programme“It is a web-based programme that is really user-friendly and easy to understand. Coaches will be able to access a website from where they will be able to download the necessary materials, which are designed in an easy to understand formula.”Recognising that not everyone has access to a computer, Erasmus added: “We fully realise that access to computers and connectivity are real barriers in such areas, and where a coach is unable to access the website, we will supply them with DVDs and further instructions by text messages. In this regard, we will work closely with the Eastern Cape Department of Sport to establish a support network for all the coaches.“The idea is to build a database of players in the areas, track and monitor their progress and then to give us feedback at a later stage so we can design maybe some methods of intervention.“The coaches are so enthusiastic and willing to learn and I am glad we could come and assist the development of rugby in an area where there is such passion and love for the game,” said Erasmus.Eventually, he added, Saru aims to spread the pilot programme to all corners of South Africa.DelightedKolisi said he was delighted to assist in the project. “I know there is a lot of raw talent in places such as Mthatha and other rural areas of the Eastern Cape,” he said.“It is very important for players to learn the proper, basic techniques from a young age and who better to teach them that than the coaches. I am therefore delighted that Saru has initiated this project, which is aimed at upskilling the coaches.”Deidre Sedras, General Manager for the Eastern Cape Department of Sport, said the Department wants to increase the base, quality and support of local coaches through this programme.“We are extremely proud to be a partner in this programme and we hope this will be the start of a very successful partnership with Saru in this regard,” she said.SAinfo reporter and SA Rugbylast_img read more

Vine: Oklahoma State’s Le’Bryan Nash Dropped A Sick No-Look Assist Against OU

first_imgOklahoma State's mascot looks into the camera.OKLAHOMA CITY – MARCH 13: The Oklahoma State Cowboys mascot during the Phillips 66 Big 12 Men’s Basketball Championship Semifinals at the Ford Center March 13, 2009 in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. (Photo by Ronald Martinez/Getty Images)The basketball version of the Bedlam rivalry is taking place tonight in Stillwater, and No. 24 Oklahoma and Oklahoma State are involved in a tight contest midway through the second half. Both teams need a victory not only for bragging rights but to keep on track for an NCAA berth. It’s been a quiet night so far for Oklahoma State’s star forward Le’Bryan Nash, but the 6-foot-7 senior does have one major highlight. It came early in the second half, in the form of a gorgeous no-look pass to teammate Michael Cobbins for a dunk.Flashy and effective. This is an entertaining game right now between two bitter rivals.[ H/T: @pistolsguy ]last_img read more

Buckeyes leave Sunshine State with another victory

It wasn’t pretty, but for the second time this season, Ohio State traveled to the state of Florida and came out with a win. In a game with 37 turnovers and 71 missed shots, No. 2 OSU beat Florida State 58-44 Tuesday night as a part of the ACC/Big Ten Challenge. OSU scored the first seven points of the game, but the Buckeyes seemed uncomfortable on the offensive end for most of the first half. They shot just 38 percent in the first 20 minutes and were forced several times to take contested, low-percentage shots near the end of the shot clock. But as off as the Buckeyes were to start the game, FSU was worse. The Seminoles made only six of their 23 first-half shots and were out-rebounded by 14 as OSU took an 11-point lead at the break. OSU opened up a 17-point lead in the second half, but the Seminoles answered with a 7-0 run to cut the lead to 10. The remainder of the game went back and forth with the Buckeyes’ lead hovering around 10 points as both teams continued their offensive struggles. A 3-pointer from FSU’s Deividas Dulkys cut the lead to seven with about four minutes to go, but that was as close as the Seminoles would get. OSU senior Jon Diebler got a steal and an easy basket in transition, giving the Buckeyes an insurmountable 11-point lead with just more than two minutes remaining. Diebler led all Buckeye scorers with 12 points but was just 3-of-12 shooting from the field. Freshman Jared Sullinger finished with 11 points and grabbed a team-high 12 rebounds, recording his third double-double of the season. Junior William Buford fouled out with just less than eight minutes to go and finished with nine points, going 4-for-12. The Buckeyes finished 19-of-59 from the field and 4-of-20 from beyond the arc. OSU is off until Dec. 9, when it hosts IUPUI. read more

Football Justin Fields remains Ohio State quarterback frontrunner

Then-Georgia quarterback Justin Fields (1) leads the offense during the second quarter against Austin Peay on Saturday, Sept. 1, 2018, at Sanford Stadium in Athens, Ga. Credit: Courtesy of TNSFrom his time watching Urban Meyer make depth chart decisions as the head coach,  Ryan Day has an idea of how it all works. He talks to the position coaches, makes sure they are all on the same page and watches film, among other things. But most of the time, the answer to the question of who will start is somewhat obvious. “Most of the time, it’s already going to be decided. You know who the starter is,” Day said. “You know guys over a period of time and have a body of work. You kind of know who the starter is.” Since the start of his first spring as head coach, Day has pointed to the quarterback position as a battle between redshirt freshman Matthew Baldwin and sophomore Justin Fields. Over the course of the past 15 practices, Day has watched as both quarterbacks have built up their own personal body of work, watching how they react to certain on-field situations, the way they manage the playbook, their ability to work a team downfield and their leadership on and off the football field. And the Spring Game is just another aspect of that process. Day views it as another practice, except this time, both quarterbacks will play before a near-capacity crowd at Ohio Stadium on Saturday. But to most people, the quarterback position has already been decided. Coming in as a former five-star recruit, Fields, a transfer from Georgia, came with the Ohio State starting quarterback job in his sights. Just his presence on the depth chart, being one of the top quarterback recruits in recent memory, forced a quarterback out in Tate Martell, and makes it difficult for any other quarterback to be in the picture. Day saw what every other person saw when recruiting Fields: a talented quarterback with sky-high potential. Ohio State’s head coach called Fields’ physical traits “tremendous,” highlighting his size and ability to move along with his strong arm. When he arrived at Ohio State, Day noticed the intangibles when the head coach worked with Fields one-on-one: his ability to read defenses at the line of scrimmage, his level of knowledge from the huddle.“Very impressed with his ability to retain information, his football IQ,” Day said. “You forget for such a mature kid, he hasn’t played much football at all.” In that way, Fields and Baldwin are similar, but in different circumstances. While Baldwin was sidelined with an injury, Fields sat behind Jake Fromm at Georgia, waiting for an opportunity that never truly came. Playing in parts of 12 games with the Bulldogs, Fields showed flashes of his five-star potential, completing 27-of-39 attempts, averaging 12.14 yards per completion with four passing touchdowns. On the ground, he was just as electric, averaging 6.3 yards per carry with four rushing touchdowns. Coming to Ohio State, Fields did not have anything to prove. He said he didn’t know what to expect either. He said his only goal, even without a definite grasp on the starting job, was to continue to grow. “Coach Day wasn’t giving me handouts,” Fields said. “I knew coming here I would have to work for it.” To Day, both quarterbacks are still freshmen and both have something to prove. But in practice, Fields has seen a bulk of opportunities with the first-team offense. Whether it’s running the offense under center, which primarily has led to a play-action pass, or the return of the option J.T. Barrett ran in his career, the Ohio State offense seems to be leaning toward the abilities of Fields more than Baldwin. But there has not been an official decision, and there likely will not be one until the fall. The Spring Game might not be as critical to Day’s decision as the outside world may perceive. But there is one thing Day wants to see from Fields and Baldwin. “The coaches are off the field, so now it’s their team,” Day said. By the time Aug. 31 comes around and the coaches are off the field for good, it will likely be Fields’ team. read more

Souness The jury is out on Everton

first_imgSky Sports pundit Graeme Souness is unsure of the direction Everton will be heading in the second half of the season after their 1-0 home defeat to Leicester City on Tuesday afternoon.Everton have been inconsistent so far this season recording just one win in eight Premier League games.Jamie Vardy’s 58th-minute goal was the difference at Goodison Park as Everton succumbed to their fourth defeat in five Premier League games on New Year’s Day.“The jury is out on Everton,” Souness told Sky Sports while providing an assessment of their season so far.Harry Maguire, Manchester UnitedLiverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.“When you factor in the performances at Manchester City and Liverpool, which were both good, but they lost.“You factor in the game against Spurs just before Christmas and they got well and truly smacked by a very good Spurs team.“For Evertonians, it’s a nervy time, because they could end up having a really, really frustrating second half or they could kick on and possibly finish seventh.”last_img read more
