We have to be better at dealing with certain situations. I also think experience can build up in Serie A, with Inter, and bring improvements as time goes on. At the moment, we end up struggling too easily. “Verona barely had a shot on goal in the second half, we conceded through a throw-in and ball across to a player on the edge of the box. “I don’t want to say too much, as people love to claim I always criticise, criticise, criticise. I don’t, I just want to help everyone improve and move forward. “The media love to tear me to shreds, that’s how they have fun. I’ll make my considerations at the end of the season, so will the club and the players. If I have something to say, I’ll say it to the club. read also:Marotta: ‘Conte still angry with Inter players’ “We all want to win, but it’s about understanding how close or far away we are from winning. Some see it one way, some in another.” Christian Eriksen struggled to get into the side in his first months at San Siro, but has played regularly since the resumption. In Verona, he was back on the bench, but Conte claims it’s not really a tactical issue. “If you look at the numbers, Inter have more possession and have scored more goals than any other side since the lockdown ended. So it’s about how you look at it. We improved our domination of the match and of territory, but the result is what ultimately counts and we threw away three points with Bologna, two against Verona. “The lads are giving their all, we have strengths, but also some weaknesses. “As for Eriksen, he has played regularly since the restart, he is growing and I am trying to put him in a context that suits him. Borja Valero did very well again tonight, so we have to rotate the squad and keep everyone in good shape.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Antonio Conte felt Inter ‘deserved to win’ but couldn’t fault his players after the 2-2 draw against Hellas Verona, despite knowing the Nerazzurri keep ‘dropping points in a stupid fashion’. Inter were up 2-1 after having started the second half in a perfect manner, but Miguel Veloso equalised to keep one point in Verona. Darko Lazovic stunned Inter after only two minutes and Verona kept the lead until half-time, before Antonio Candreva inspired the Beneamata’s comeback, scoring once and forcing an own goal by Federico Dimarco in the second half. Conte was happy to see his team respond with ‘determination’ and praised Verona for keeping the intensity during the game. “In terms of effort, hunger, determination, I have no complaints. Let’s not forget, we played against a Verona side that keeps a high tempo and makes that its greatest strength. I think tonight Inter replied blow for blow,” the coach told Sky Sport Italia. “There is the usual regret, that we conceded a goal five minutes from time on a throw-in. These are situations that are disappointing because you drop points along the way and they add up. We deserved to win the game.” The Nerazzurri have dropped an incredible 20 points from leading situations in Serie A this season. “We’re doing important work and I focus on that. I think you can see the results of the work we’re doing. The fact we lost 20 points should push us to reflect and continue improving. “We’re well aware that we dropped points in a stupid fashion throughout the season, otherwise we’d be talking about a very different campaign.” Lukaku was replaced by Lautaro Martinez in the 77th minute and Conte admitted he took him off because of a problem. “He had a problem in his back and also the adductor, we hope it’s nothing serious and just a knock.”last_img read more

Lions rookie QB David Blough reflects on ‘special’ NFL debut

admin no comments

first_imgDavid Blough reflected on a “special” NFL debut after the undrafted rookie impressed for the Detroit Lions in their narrow 24-20 Thanksgiving Day defeat to the Chicago Bears.The Lions confirmed on Wednesday that Blough – who was signed by the Cleveland Browns as an undrafted free agent in May before being traded to Detroit – would be making his maiden start due to injuries to starting and backup quarterbacks Matthew Stafford and Jeff Driskel. Blough, however, conceded the Lions can only have themselves to blame for a seventh defeat in eight games.”As a guy who wants more, it’s tough to stand here after a loss but we’ll go back and watch the tape and learn and keep on improving,” he said.”You can put it on a lack of execution, some drives that stalled out. I think it shows you the story of our offense all season. We’ve been explosive and had a lot of success against a lot of great teams, no matter who the quarterback is, but sometimes we shoot ourselves in the foot.” Blough’s bow was one to remember, with the 24-year-old’s first pass completion leading to a 75-yard touchdown for Kenny Golladay.VIDEO: David Blough’s WOW throws from first NFL startAnother pass to Marvin Jones Jr. resulted in the Lions’ second touchdown as they took 17-7 lead, but a late charge from the Bears saw Chicago come out on top Thursday.Detroit (3-8-1) has now lost five games in a row, but there was plenty of positivity regarding Blough’s display in his first career start.”Going into it I felt comfortable, prepared and we had a great plan to go into the game and take our shots,” Blough told a news conference at Ford Field. “It wasn’t until (Wednesday) night that I was told I was a starter, then the Lions announced it and all those things. I was ready to go, prepare every week to play on the field.”It just so happened it was done on a short week, Matthew being out, just a couple of different twists and turns, but they told me last night and I was pretty excited.Happy Thanksgiving, Detroit! pic.twitter.com/jnotIepBys— Ford Field (@fordfield) November 28, 2019″This is what you dream about as a kid, I’m thankful for it all, the ups and downs. “I knew I wasn’t going to be perfect but I wanted to give everything that I had and the guys lifted me up. It was encouraging to me, as the guy who has been here 10 or 11 weeks, to know that I had those guys in my corner, it was special.WHO IS DAVID BLOUGH? Fast facts about Lions’ Thanksgiving starter”I’ve been playing football my whole life and I think one of the coolest things was the amount of support I had.

Top class Sophie wins England Golf award

admin no comments

first_img English girls’ champion Sophie Keech is top class at combining her golf and her school work – and she’s won the England Golf Silver Tee Award to prove it. The award is made annually to a girl who develops her golf while also concentrating on her studies and Sophie’s success in the Silver Tee was announced at today’s annual meeting of England Golf. “I’m really pleased to win this award, it gets 2014 off to a great start,” said Sophie, an England girl international from Parkstone Golf Club in Dorset. She is pictured with the English girls’ trophy (image © Leaderboard Photography). The 17-year-old is working towards a BTec in sport at Millfield School in Somerset, where she is a boarder. She commented: “I’m on track. The BTec is all coursework so I can balance it with my golf and my teachers at Millfield are so good and so understanding.” Sophie, who has been at Millfield since she was 13 and is the golf captain, will leave school this summer and will concentrate on her golfing ambitions. She said: “I’ve got mixed emotions about it. It will be such a relief to finish all the work, but at the same time I love it so much here. It’s going to be so sad leaving, I think there will be a few tears on the last day.” She plans to play on the women’s amateur circuit for the next two years to gain experience: “All I want to do is play golf,” she said. Her immediate targets include successfully defending her English girls’ title and winning a British event. Sophie will be building on an impressive golfing CV: in addition to winning the English girls’ championship last year and helping England win the Girls’ Home Internationals, she was also the English schools’ champion, for the second time. Regionally, she was the South West girls’ titleholder and was runner-up in the South West ladies’ championship. In 2011 she helped Millfield to win the World Schools Championship in South Africa. 12 Feb 2014 Top class Sophie wins England Golf award last_img read more

Rumson-Fair Haven’s Kevin Alter Graduates Naval Academy with Accolades

admin no comments

first_imgRUMSON – Kevin M. Alter, a lifelong resident who led Rumson-Fair Haven High School to its first Shore Conference Tournament Final in 2011, graduated from the Naval Academy on May 22. Alter, 21, is now a Second Lieutenant in the United States Marine Corps.Better known as “Pookie,” Alter was captain of the Naval Academy Basketball team during his senior year. He appeared in 80 games during his four years on the team, hitting 43 career three-pointers; despite being the shortest player in the country (5’6”), at the Division I level. Among others, Alter received the team’s Rear Admiral Ronald Marryott Award, bestowed upon the player who demonstrates a commitment to character, leadership and his teammates.Alter also received the Charles DiBona Prize, which recognizes the graduating midshipman who has demonstrated outstanding achievement in the study of international economics.He was selected as one of only ten college students in the nation out of 158 nominees to the 2015 National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC), Allstate Good Works Team, which recognizes a distinguished group of scholar-athletes who have demonstrated a strong, ongoing commitment to community service. The recognition sent him to the NCAA Final Four basketball tournament in Indianapolis with a guest – his older brother Matthew, a RFH soccer player.Locally, the Alter brothers run an annual stickball tournament to support various causes. This year’s event, scheduled for June 13, will host over a dozen teams to benefit Homes for Our Troops, which helps build adapted homes for veterans with life-altering injuries.Kevin’s RFH basketball coach Chris Champeau, who traveled to Annapolis to witness Alter’s Naval Academy graduation, said, “In my eyes, it’s loyalty and integrity that sets Kevin apart. I’ve never met anyone with more grit. He’s got a fire inside to always work harder than anyone else. I never had a son, but if I did, I would like him to be like Pookie.”“He’s got the heart of a lion,” said Navy Head Coach Ed DeChellis, who noted that Alter’s selection as captain was unanimous among players. “Any time there’s an issue, any time anybody’s got a question, they go to Kevin Alter. When I needed something done with the team, I go to Kevin Alter. There’s nobody I respect more. He has that magnetism that draws everybody towards him. That’s the kind of person he is.”Kevin works with many charities and has already received more awards than most achieve in a lifetime. “Anytime you get a chance to work with the Special Olympics, it’s always an honor,” Alter said. “These kids really care about the game. It doesn’t matter what they are going through, they always know that the game of basketball can take them away from some of their everyday struggles.”
Among those joining Alter on graduation day were his grandfather, William Alter, a longtime Rumson resident who graduated from the academy in 1954 and was a member of its Board of Directors.“The big thing for me is the fantastic poem ‘Invictus’ by William Ernest Henley that helped me get through a lot,” Alter said. “It’s about controlling the controllable. I can control my attitude and my effort. Life is 10 percent what happens and 90 percent your reaction to it.” He will head to Basic School at Quantico, Virginia, in June for seven months of training.Those who followed Alter’s high school basketball career still talk about his proficiency as a clutch player, making big shots and key plays late in the game, including a three-pointer with a minute left and his team up one in the Shore Conference Tournament semifinals during R-FH’s 2011 postseason run. In the tournament final, Alter scored 24 of his team’s 35 points. He was named first-team all-conference and all-state,“I have to bring it every day and play as hard as I can every second I’m out there,” Alter said. “There are no days I can afford to take off just because of my size. I think it’s really been a blessing for me.” He credits his parents, John and Janet Alter, his coaches, friends and large extended family for the role their support has played in his successes.“They all had a huge influence on how I try to carry myself and hold myself accountable,” he said. “My high school coach made a huge influence on my career and my life and why I came to Annapolis. He always preached honesty, accountability, and hard work.” Friends and former Rumson-Fair Haven High School teammates traveled to Annapolis to attend the graduation of Midshipman Kevin Alter from the Naval Academy last week.

Local Politicians Weigh in On Presidential Race

admin no comments

first_imgBy John BurtonHillary? Trump? Ted? Current long shot John Kasich? Do many in Monmouth County “Feel the Bern”? It seems those who follow this stuff closely in Monmouth County on so many levels on either side of the political aisle are expressing much of the same conflicted emotions as other around the country.Some political party municipal committee chairs—who help orchestrate their little corners of the big political picture, helping select local candidates, strategizing, and so on—offered their views and those of their committee members as they watch the national show play out.“I’m fascinated,” said Peter Carton, longtime Middletown Republican municipal chairman, as he watches the national party go through the throes of a highly and often bitterly contested contest to select its candidate to run for the highest office in the land.“I’ve been involved in this for a long time,” Carton said, “and I’ve never seen an election quite like this.”With real estate mogul Donald Trump making political inroads as a firebrand populist and traditional, mainstream conservative candidates continuing to fall by the wayside, Carton said he hasn’t settled on who was earned his support, nor has others municipal committee members he’s spoken to.Carton was speaking earlier on Tuesday, before primary results were being reported, and he suspected that those results could sway support. “It’ll be intriguing and we’ll all be watching tonight,” he said.Indeed, he was correct that the outcome could shift the race, with Florida U.S. Senator Marco Rubio crashing into an embarrassing defeat to Trump in his home state and suspending his campaign.Carton’s Democratic counterpart in Middletown, Don Watson, was more pronounced in his support for his candidate, Hillary Clinton. “She has the most commonsense of all of them,” Watson stressed.But support among his committee is fairly divided. “A couple of them are supporting Bernie (Sanders),” he observed, while others, “A lot of them haven’t voiced their support yet.”“It’s tough for any Democrat to win in Monmouth County,” he acknowledged. But Watson mustered his party loyalty, stressing “But I think we have a good slate of candidates,” for county offices on November’s ballot. “I think with Hillary at the top of the ticket we should do pretty good here.”County Republicans conducted their convention on Feb. 18, selecting their slate of candidates. During that event the gathering had a straw poll, where some in attendance said Trump won pretty decisively.Democrats on March 11 held their own “mini convention” to offer their list of candidates for Board of Chosen Freeholders, sheriff and U.S. House of Representatives. Their straw poll had a strong showing by Clinton.That was all right with Red Bank Democratic Chairman Edward Zipprich. “When you talk to folks in the party there is as much passion for Hillary as there is for Bernie,” observed Zipprich, who will be a Clinton delegate for the Philadelphia convention. Of course, he offered, “It just depends on what group you’re talking to.”“It’s kind of a mixed bag,” among his committee members who supporting whom, he said. And while Zipprich is clearly in the Clinton camp, he thinks Sanders has provided a valuable service. “Bernie has energized a lot of young people, which is kind of surprising, who hear his message,” he said. “Which is exactly what America needs for the next generation, to come along and get involved.”Red Bank GOP Chairman Sean Di Somma, said on Tuesday “It it was today in New Jersey, I’d vote for Marco (Rubio),” conceding that may have to change on Wednesday morning.Despite all the talk that Trump is divisive, Di Somma said he finds the rhetoric of Sanders and Clinton equally so. “I look at it, and quite frankly, some of it is equally absurd as some of Donald Trump’s” such as Sanders contention “trying to give away everything for free and dividing up the country.”Who would Atlantic Highlands Republican Chairwoman Jane Frotton want for president? “Can I vote for Ronald Reagan?” she joked. “Can we bring him back?”Frotton has yet to make up her mind and hears differing opinions from local and county committee members. She thinks Trump “probably would” make a good president, but must first “quiet down a little bit, not be so rough.”And like others have said about the theater that has evolved from this campaign, Frotton said “I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything like this.”Rhonda “Randi” Le Grice, the Atlantic Highlands Democratic chair as well as the new mayor, is “still conflicted and undecided.” But a motivating factor “I feel like I just can’t let Trump be our president. That’s where I’m coming from personally.” And she expressed concern that Sanders couldn’t beat Trump, leaving her with only one option.“Sometimes it feels like you’re voting more against someone than for someone,” she conceded.All the talk of a Republican broker convention where there is no decisive front runner to secure the nomination wouldn’t be a bad thing, Di Somma maintained.“We’re almost a little too polished and corporate in the way we select our presidents,” in recent decades. A wide open contested convention in Cleveland would be reminiscent of 40-50 years ago, but done much more publicly than those days—and would be good for his party, Di Somma suspected. “I don’t think anybody should run away from a floor fight,” he said.And with New Jersey’s primary in June, fairly late in the game, it isn’t usually a factor in the candidate selection. But with 51 delegates in the offing, “It could be critical”, this year, Carton suspected.last_img read more

Drunk woman who drove wrong way up Letterkenny’s Main Street is fined and banned

first_imgA woman who drove up the wrong way of Letterkenny Main Street while drunk has been fined and banned from driving for six years.Ann White was stopped by Gardai on November 2nd, 2016 while driving a red Mitsubishi Colt the wrong way up the town. Letterkenny District Court heard that when interviewed by Gardai she was slurring her speech and was confused.A blood sample later showed she had a reading of 239 milligrammes of alcohol per 100 milligrammes of blood – making her more than four times over the legal drink driving limit.Ms White, aged 56, of Bridge Street, Strabane, was also stopped by Gardai on March 2nd, 2017, at Drumbeg, Raphoe.Gardai were responding to a single vehicle accident after a motorist struck a roadsign and then collided with a ditch.Gardai found Ms White at the roadside and asked her if she needed hospital treatment.But she replied “Fuck off would you? I’m alright. I only had a couple of drinks and I don’t need to go to hospital.”Solicitor Patsy Gallagher said his client was on disability allowance and only started drinking late in life.He said she obviously had major issues with alcohol and prescription drugs.He said she had little recollection of either event and will probably never drive again.On the first incident of drunk driving at Main Street, Letterkenny, Judge Paul Kelly fined the woman €100 and banned her from driving for two years.In relation to the second charge, he fined Ms White a further €150 and banned her from driving for a further four years.Drunk woman who drove wrong way up Letterkenny’s Main Street is fined and banned was last modified: November 7th, 2017 by StephenShare 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)last_img read more

A letter of concern

admin no comments

first_imgJohan la Grange PO Box 12398 Leraatsfontein 1038 Witbank Cell +27 79 428 1971 (RSA) Cell +243 82 420 0465 (DRC) E-mail. biebie58@yahoo.com 11 January 2016 To whom it may concern, Sir/s, Re. Concerned citizen of South Africa. It is with great concern that I write this letter today and I hope that you will read this and show it to other people to read and maybe there is someone else in this country that feels the same as I do. South Africa is a beautiful country and it is with pride that I say this and I think I should know as I’ve been working in other African countries now for sixteen years, and I’ve seen these countries maybe with a different eye as the normal SA citizen will see them. This also enable me to realize that South Africa has gone backwards as a developed country and now I class SA as a developing country, the same as the rest of Africa. Don’t get me wrong, a lot has happened and was done since independence was “created” in 1994, but the pace in which things happen has gone from good to very slow and I blame myself for this as well because I’ve seen this every day for sixteen years outside the SA borders and now SA is on exactly the same pace, running a 400 meter race at a 1500 meter pace. (you cannot run the Durban July with a Donkey) you need to look at yourself and see whether you’ve gone back from getting things done quick and correctly to “what I don’t feel like doing today, I might look at completing tomorrow”. Now let me put one thing straight, I don’t talk about politics, religion or sex, these are my personal issues and so I believe is everybody else supposed to feel and accept their family, friend, neighbor, employer, employee, as a matter of fact anybody living in this country’s feeling and believe. This is a matter of respect both to yourself and other humans. I’m not ashamed to say that I’ve voted only once since 1994, but this was due to circumstances beyond my control and still today I think of this and I know that I’ve missed out on a opportunity to make a difference, but what’s gone is gone and I now feel that I will not miss out again. The government of this country is by far much more trustworthy that the majority of other African countries governments and you can talk about this for many moons to come but you will not convince me otherwise, I’ve seen and heard enough in Africa. So let’s face-it we all complain every day, but do we really do something to improve the country and the people living in harsh circumstances without electricity, without running water and no sanitation. No we don’t or shall I say I don’t myself, well I’ve tried in the past on numerus occasions without success and I can now after self-investing and struggling with this issue in my head for a long time, admit to you all that I didn’t try hard enough to do my part for the country, and you know why, just because it’s easier to just sit back and complain about everything going wrong, because that’s not what I want, then blaming everything on someone else and the government. It’s the easy way out and it sounds good if everybody blames someone else and I can talk along. As I’ve explained in the letter already, I’ve worked in other countries over the past sixteen years, doing electrical infrastructure development and refurbishing redundant war damaged sites and get these up and running again and building new plants for gold and copper mine production.( after years of war and circumstances I could or cannot do anything about, as I’m only an expat trying to educate, train and uplift the people of these countries to the best of my ability, the majority of infrastructures had to be built from scratch again).Why do I mention these? Because that is the reality and I cannot understand why my privilege was taken away from me, this is the privilege of doing the same work and uplifting of people here in South Africa. Now let me be straight with you, I know that I cannot get any work, tenders or even come back to South Africa and start a new business here, just for the simple reason that I don’t have a BBEE partner or partners. That’s the bottom line and now tell me, how am I supposed to do my part for this country, how can I train people to uplift themselves and create a better life for them and their families, how can I help developing infrastructures of this country, how can I build anything in this country to help the people in need if this is the reality? I’m no racist and I hate the fact that everything gets blamed on “apartheid”, that is bullshit and as far as I’m concerned, it is to my opinion, a matter of the government or certain people in high places taking these opportunities away from the people suffering daily without the services they are entitled to have in a developed country like South Africa. The bottom line for me now is, if I want or must come back to South Africa, to get a partner who feels the same about life in SA as myself and see the need and opportunities the same as I do. I’m a qualified electrician with thirty four years’ experience and twenty two years’ experience in mechanical engineering and I need this person/s to have a business attitude and sense, the same as myself. This will not happen I know, but it’s my task to teach the person/s to develop the business and give them an opportunity to go forward in life and in doing so also help the struggling citizens of this country. Is asking this too much from a concerned citizen, am I barking up the wrong tree, am I wrong in my visions, am I wrong in trying to help other people, am I wrong in trying to develop communities infrastructure, am I wrong in asking someone to help me to uplift the people of this country, am I wrong in asking anything because of my skin color, am I wrong in thinking that anybody will read this? Tell me if I’m wrong and then show me what you have done to create a better South Africa. Don’t criticize me for all, but come with a solution to my concern and by doing that, we can all help each other. I don’t care if you laugh at me, swear at me, and delete this letter or whatever you feel, other than looking positive at this it is how I feel and I also know I’m not the only person in South Africa feeling this way. Why does other countries where I’ve work not ask or insist that you must be from this race or from this religion or from this sport before you can add value to the country, how can I be blamed for what other people did a hundred or two hundred years ago, is this fair towards me as a human being? Why is people in the other countries so glad to see us and so positive about what we are doing for them in their country, we are not all there for the money, we deliver a service to those countries and what you don’t realize is the fact that the more people there is that make the move to work in other countries the less tax the government get every year and remember it’s the people that earn high salaries that do go there. This is not only PAYE taxes, it’s all the other taxes that we must pay in South Africa, which is now down the drain and looking at the annual figures supplied by the media there is less people paying taxes every year basically due to unemployment rising daily. If all these don’t bother you, do me a favor and delete or scrap this letter because you are then one of the people in a position where you’re enriching yourself and let the poor just get poorer while you keep yourself busy with all sorts of political crap. This matter has got nothing to do with politics, it’s about the wellbeing of people of South Africa of which you are one. I’ll keep on fighting until I get a partner that are willing to work with me in South Africa, as I cannot sit and see things going backward as it is doing day by day and I can and will make a difference to other people in need of a better life, I will not let the government or any politician or anybody for that matter, stop me or tell me I cannot succeed in creating a stable business in South Africa, which is where I was born and belong. I hope that if you read this letter to the end, that you will see that we can all live a peaceful and prosperous life in South Africa. I thank you. PS. I don’t have money to buy anybody or bribe anybody, all I need is someone that feels they can make a difference and make a success of the business with me.last_img read more
