Blow for Liverpool? Juventus set sights on Anfield-linked Dortmund star

first_imgBorussia Dortmund star Henrikh Mkhitaryan could be on the way to Juventus.The player’s agent, Mino Raiola, is due to hold talks with the Italian giants today to discuss a potential move to Turin.Sky Italia are reporting that Juve will table a bid of just over £14m, which is expected to be knocked back by BVB.However, Juve have the financial muscle to return with a higher bid as they aim to add a high-profile signing before the season begins.Liverpool had been tracking the player’s movements this summer but are now unlikely to provide any competition for Juve.Mkhitaryan joined Shakhtar Donetsk from Dortmund in 2013 and has made 94 appearances for the club, scoring 24 goals and providing 20 assists.

Banyana end Cyprus Cup with a win

first_img14 March 2013Banyana Banyana finished in 11th place in the Cyprus Cup on Wednesday after defeating Northern Ireland 5-4 in a penalty shootout at the Tasos Markou Stadium in Paralimini.In the group stages, after going down 2-0 to South Korea, 1-0 to Ireland, and defeating Northern Ireland 2-1, Banyana had to face Northern Ireland again to decide 11th and 12th positions.The contest, which was tied at 1-1 before it went to a shootout, was ultimately decided by a superb penalty save from goalkeeper Andile Dlamini.Ahead of the trip to Cyprus, South Africa’s coach Joseph Mkhonza spoke of creating a larger pool of players and giving untested players from the Sasol League a chance to prove their worth at national team level.PositiveZanele Chiya was one of the five new players called up to the national set-up for the first time and remained positive despite not featuring in the tournament.“I’m thrilled just to have been part of Banyana Banyana and the past three weeks have all been about learning for me,” said Chiya, a defender from the TUT Ladies team.“I’ve learned how to move the ball quickly, the importance of timing when in possession, and quick recovery after losing the ball. But most critically, I found that the bonding with teammates off-the-field makes the chemistry so effortless to work with during match day because of the personal and playing style understanding,” she added.Shiwe Nogwanya, one of the few success stories of the tournament for the Sasol-sponsored side, made her debut during the match against Northern Ireland on Monday and believes she and her teammates learnt a lot during the trip.‘Tough’“Things were tough out here and we had to chase most of the games after slow starts and conceding early in the match, but moving forward, emphasis in our play must be to focus at all times,” explained Nogwanya.She came close to scoring on two occasions against Northern Ireland when first, she could not connect with the ball from a low cross, and then had her shot smothered by the Irish goalkeeper.‘Very different’The forceful 19-year old striker, who plies her trade with Bloemfontein Celtic in the Sasol League, added: “I found things very different from club level to the international stage – the tactics, ball work at training and moving into space at specific times during matches was a key learning area for me, but I believe through hard work I will improve and be recalled for future national team camps.”There were a number of other success stories for Banyana Banyana on their tour of Cyprus, including the play of teens Robyn Moodaly and Jermaine Seoposenwe, vice-captain Refiloe Jane, who performed superbly in the midfield and often linked well with winger Mary Ntsweng and the forwards.PLAYOFF RESULTS 11th /12th South Africa 1-1 (5-4) Northern Ireland9th/10th South Korea 0-1 Italy7th/8th Republic of Ireland 0-1 Finland5th/6th Scotland 1-0 The Netherlands3rd/4th New Zealand 2-1 Switzerland1st/2nd England 1-0 Canada SAinfo reporterWould you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

SA firms head for Zimbabwe Trade Fair

first_img22 April 2014 The Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) is leading a group of South African companies to the 2014 Zimbabwe International Trade Fair starting in Bulawayo on Tuesday. Deputy Trade and Industry Minister Elizabeth Thabethe said on the weekend that export sales flowing from South Africa’s participation in the fair over the last three years, as reported by the companies involved, had amounted to R6.6-million in 2011, R7.1-million in 2012 and R55.6-million in 2013. “Last year, South Africa was voted the best foreign exhibitor stand due to its quality and design,” Thabethe said in a statement. “South African firms took up the largest single exhibition space of 800 square metres, followed by China with 600 square metres, clinching export deals valued at R55.6-million, up from R6.6-million recorded at ZITF 2011.” Participating companies have been assisted by the DTI through its Export Marketing and Investment Assistance Scheme (EMIA). Thabethe said she expected the companies to return to South Africa with increased market knowledge about the Zimbabwean market, regional and international business contacts and new export orders. She said the week-long fair was an important platform for promoting intra-Africa trade as well as to strengthening relations between South Africa, its regional counterparts and the rest of the world. Countries represented in the fair include China, Brazil, Congo Brazzaville, Egypt, Indonesia, Iran, Kenya, Malawi, Mozambique, Poland, Bangladesh, India and Nigeria. The United States will also participate in this year’s fair after a long absence from the annual trade showcase. SAinfo reporterlast_img read more

Forget Hall Monitors, School Investigates Tracking Students with RFID

first_img8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Related Posts Tags:#Internet of Things#NYT#web chris cameron So much for bathroom passes and hall monitors – these days it’s technology that is making the art of skipping class much more difficult for students, and we’re not just talking about security cameras. A forward-thinking school district in Connecticut is looking to crack down on wayward students, faculty and even equipment by making use of radio frequency identification (RFID) in its schools. New Canaan Public Schools hopes to increase the efficiency of its security efforts by embedding RFID tags into student and faculty identification cards and onto various pieces of school equipment. The tags could be used to track where specific students and faculty are located throughout campus, as well as hunt down missing laptops, projectors and other school property.SecureRF Corporation, a company specializing in secure RFID software, proposed the project to the school district. Funding for the project could come by way of a $100,000 grant from the National Science Foundation, which the company is close to finalizing.One of the alternative uses the company has offered to the district is to enable tracking on school busses to see who uses the busses and how often. The data collected from experiments like these could be used to better budget the school funds, potentially opening up more money to underfunded areas of education, like the arts. Some district board members raised questions about privacy, but the experiments will likely be opt-in if they are given the green light.Anyone who has driven through a toll station on a highway without having to stop to drop a few coins knows the potential for RFID to improve and optimize our everyday lives. For school officials tasked with managing hundreds of students across large campuses, technology like this could make their jobs much easier, keeping kids safer.center_img A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic…last_img read more

The Rules of Exception

first_imgklint finley Tags:#Analysis#enterprise Sameer Patel of the Sovos Group wrote an excellent blog post on the way organizations tend to deal with exceptions to process. Related Posts Cognitive Automation is the Immediate Future of… Massive Non-Desk Workforce is an Opportunity fo… IT + Project Management: A Love Affair 3 Areas of Your Business that Need Tech Now “The sheer impracticality of channeling exceptions in any scalable way to get the right answers has plagued organizations for ever. Each exception requires a different set of experts or problem owners, some known but most unknown, and often spread across a global footprint at large organizations.”Patel characterizes three types of work: Process work, done “by the playbook.” This includes order processing, assembly of products, etc. This type of work is easiest to automate.Project work done “by management style.” This includes product development, marketing campaigns and other projects where the overall steps repeat, but the details change every time.Exceptions, done by the seat of your pants. This is practically everything else, especially the unexpected and unpredictable.According to Patel, organizations have traditionally just accepted that sometimes there would be exceptions, and sometimes exceptions would lead to things going wrong. Because it’s so much easier to focus on the routine, exceptions have been ignored. But he says that’s a bad idea.“In the age of the social web, those very ‘once in a while’ instances cannot be shoved under the carpet. The social web has a way of exposing and then amplifying our ineffective handling of exceptions. And no, this isn’t just about failed social media campaigns or online service. Its when the social web gets wind of something seemingly dopey we did in the offline world as well. And whilst there’s no trending data suggesting that negative press on the social web instills long term financial damage, find me one executive who wants to own or be a victim of the PR disaster that resulted in lower revenue or operating margins this quarter.”Patel uses the example of Delta Airlines’ recent blunder (I suppose it’s getting a little cliche to keep picking on United).Beyond bad PR, there’s what Gartner has referred to as the “De-routinization of Work.” Routine work is increasingly being automated (check out this story about a warehouse run by robots for example). More and more jobs will continue to focus on exceptions.Patel concludes by noting the advantages that the new wave of social and collaborative enterprise applications bring to the table and reminds of his idea that we’ve written about before:“I’ve long said that what rigid process systems are missing is a giant Discuss button that sits right between Submit and Cancel buttons that govern what in reality is not a very black and white day in the office. Same applies for face to face customer interaction that’s otherwise governed by rigid protocol, as in the case of Delta Airlines.”A low-tech approach is simply to give employees autonomy to make decisions regarding customer issues up to a certain amount. If those Delta employees had been able to just $200 worth of “wiggle room” per passenger (a small amount considering the total cost of an intercontinental flight), the issue would never have spiraled out of control.Photo by kioanlast_img read more

Paralympic star wants to excel in new role

first_imgAfter bringing glory to the country at the Athens Paralympics, former javelin thrower Devendra Jhajharia now has the task of guiding the next generation to glory.The one-armed athlete from Rajasthan climbed to the top of the podium at the 2004 Games when he hurled the spear to a distance of 62.15 metres, a world record. Till date, he is the only Indian gold medallist at the Paralympics.After losing an arm in an accident at a young age, Jhajharia showed immense courage and determination to climb to the top in his chosen field, and now wants his compatriots to take inspiration from his feats.”My world record is yet to be broken but I want an Indian to break it,” he said. Jhajharia, who was conferred the Padma Shri on Thursday, is the national coach of the Paralympic Committee of India (PCI).Jhajharia feels athletes should not get demoralised if their achievements do not get immediate recognition.”Sportspersons should not feel let down. If they keep performing, no one can deny them their due. I also got recognition pretty late but I hope that it will inspire other athletes to achieve greater heights,” he said. “My journey has been tough and I started practising with bamboo sticks. But I never felt inferior to anyone and always competed with the aim to match able-bodied counterparts.”With such an attitude, he feels an affinity with South African para athlete Oscar Pistorius, who has qualified for the London Olympics to compete with able-bodied athletes.advertisement”Both of us participated at the 2004 Paralympics. His feat shows that if a person is determined, he can break any barrier. I feel extremely proud of his feat and hope that he does well.”last_img read more

RitzCarlton sets up signs for 12storey on Grace Bay

first_img Recommended for you Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, Right next door to the Seven Stars Resort is where the RitzCarlton Residences, Turks and Caicos Grace Bay is advertising that it will be erected. On Monday, a passerby sent us a photo of the coming soon banner now cradling the fence surrounding the vacant lot. As many as 34 services are being touted for the property which is now promoting the sales of these luxury residences on the World’s #1 Beach. Despite strong objection, it appears that nothing will stop the 12 storey structure and there are artists’ renderings to show how the soon to be tallest building in the TCI, will look on Grace Bay. Deserollos Hotelco will develop the site which features two and three bedroom residences at around 3,300 square feet. On the pro side of this feisty argument, residents welcome more development and the construction boom this Deserollos project is expected to bring. The ‘stop the 12 storey developments in Turks and Caicos’ petition had up to broadcast time, 956 signatures against the development; the goal is 1,500. If you want to see the video of what the resort with 60 private condominiums and spanning 688 linear feet along the coastline will look like, go to our report at MagneticMediaTV.com and follow the link. http://www.theresidencesturksandcaicos.com/ Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Maskanoo to take over Grace Bay strip Boxing Day Saturday Local Atty says Govt going against public consultation; says NO to taller resort plan Opposition says: Govt slow to restore construction industry; 12-storey debacle no surprise Related Items:12 storey, deserollos hotelco, grace bay, ritz carltonlast_img read more
