Kingston College and Wolmer’s Boys will meet in a mega clash as the quarter-finals of the ISSA-FLOW Walker Cup knockout competition kick off today at the Constant Spring Complex in St Andrew.The KC-Wolmer’s encounter, the feature match of a double-header, is set to start at 3 p.m. In the curtain-raiser at 1 p.m., Bridgeport High will oppose Denham Town High.Schoolboy football fans can expect a every exciting contest in the feature match. Both teams were very impressive during the Manning Cup preliminary stage that served as a qualifier for the Walker Cup.Wolmer’s finished Group F with a perfect 10 wins from 10 matches record, scoring 36 goals and conceding just once.KC won nine games and drew the other in topping Group C. The ‘Purples’ scored a competition-high 53 goals and conceded only once.With the records of both teams, there should be end-to-end action in today’s game.Wolmer’s head coach Vassel Reynolds says the game is a “stepping stone” to retaining the Walker Cup title.”We see the game as a stepping stone towards the defence of our title,” Reynolds told The Gleaner yesterday.”Our strength is playing as a team – playing total football. We have about seven players who have been scoring, and that is good for the team,” he added. “The KC team has been prolific, but there is not much between both teams.”Wolmer’s will rely heavily on Alphanso Gooden, Rivaldo English, Mickel Graham and Xavion Crossdale to take control and limit the free-scoring KC.KC’s head coach, Ludlow Bernard, knows Wolmer’s very well. He spent three seasons at the Heroes Circle-based school and he is predicting a good game for the spectators.”It is going to be a good game for spectators as both teams are very attacking,” Bernard pointed out.”We have many goalscorers on the team because of our system of play. Anybody can end up in front of goal. It will come down to the better defensive team on the day,” he added.KC’s strong attacking force will be led by Rashawn Mackison, who is the Manning Cup’s leading scorer on 18 goals. Mackison should get good support from Trayvone Reid, Ronaldo Robinson and Fabian Grant.The first game should also be a close and exciting affair.Bridgeport, the winners of Manning Cup Group G, are given the edge over Denham Town, who advanced as the best second-placed team from the seven groups. The Portmore-based Bridgeport scored 18 goals and conceded five, while Denham Town, in finishing runners-up to KC in Group C, also netted 18 times and had four goals against.
0Shares0000Joachim Loew is set to remain head coach of Germany to rebuild the national side in the wake of a woeful display at the World Cup finals when they finished bottom of their group. © AFP / Yann SchreiberBERLIN, Germany, Jul 3 – Germany coach Joachim Loew will remain in his job despite the World Cup debacle which saw the holders crash out after the group stages, according to reports on Tuesday.Both Germany’s best-selling daily Bild and Sport Bild magazine say the 58-year-old will stay on to rebuild the national team, which finished bottom of their group in Russia. The Germans bowed out after shock defeats to Mexico and South Korea.It was the first time since 1938 that a Germany side failed to get past the first round at a World Cup finals — a huge dent to Loew’s reputation after 12 successful years in charge.The German Football Association (DFB) has yet to confirm the reports, but Loew has a contract until the 2022 World Cup.Loew returned from Russia considering his future, but the DFB said they would not sack him.He has promised a clearout of the squad and several of the World Cup winners who under-performed so badly in Russia may have played their last game for their country.“It needs far-reaching measures, it needs clear change,” Loew said last week when Germany arrived home in disgrace.Senior players Sami Khedira, Toni Kroos and Thomas Mueller have given Loew their backing, yet could all face the axe after poor displays.There are, however, reports of player disgruntlement in other quarters with Loew.Frankfurt-based newspaper FAZ quoted unnamed Germany players who said the squad was deeply divided between senior and younger players in Russia.There was also resentment to the special status given to captain Manuel Neuer.The goalkeeper played all three group games, ahead of Barcelona star Marc-Andre Ter Stegen, even though Neuer had just returned from eight months sidelined by a foot fracture.That was “a problem for some players” as Loew had said he would only use those who were playing well regularly.Other complaints included Loew giving priority to established players, the choice of Germany’s isolated World Cup base in south-west Moscow and the poor handling of the pre-World Cup scandal involving Mesut Ozil and Ilkay Gundogan.Their loyalty to Germany was brought into question on the eve of the World Cup after meeting Turkey president Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who Gundogan presented with a jersey signed “to my president”.Both players were booed by German fans during pre-World Cup friendlies, which overshadowed preparations for the finals.Ozil refused to comment on the controversy during the World Cup while Gundogan gave a single interview in which he said the furore was “a difficult experience”.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORERose Parade grand marshal Rita Moreno talks New Year’s Day outfit and ‘West Side Story’ remake A woman who answered a business line Tuesday for the Royal clinic said it’s still open, but she declined to give her name or comment on the arrests. Don Plance, whose doctor’s office is just down the hall from the clinic, said he has seen men – and only men – entering the business since the arrest, and that customers were going in and out just two days after the bust. “It’s kind of become sort of a joke with our patients,” he said. The Royal clinic is just past the Montrose Shopping Park, a quaint stretch with cafes and shops now decorated for the holidays. The Integrative clinic is in the shopping park, above a party supply store. “Last I heard there is nothing operating up there at the moment,” said John Drayman, vice president of the Montrose Shopping Park Association. “I don’t know for a fact. Actually, I’m quite curious to know.” MONTROSE – Despite being raided by police earlier this month during a prostitution sting that netted four arrests, a Montrose acupuncture clinic was still open for business Tuesday. The Police Department continues to investigate the Royal Acupuncture Clinic and a connected business a few blocks away called the Integrative Pain Clinic. City officials said they could revoke the businesses’ massage permits depending on what police recommend when their investigation ends. On Dec. 1, police arrested Feng Wen Liu, 56, and Li Juan Sun, 48, at the Royal clinic at 2520 Honolulu Ave., Suite 175; and Qing Wang, 46, and Mei Ling Yu, 45, at the Integrative clinic at 2233 Honolulu Ave., Suite 301. The women were booked on suspicion of prostitution. Police believe Wang is the owner or manager of at least one of the businesses, and she was also booked on suspicion of operating a house of prostitution. The arrests came after police received complaints and investigated over the last few months, with undercover officers pretending to be customers, police Lt. Gary Montecuollo said. In at least four incidents, workers at the businesses offered sexual favors for money. “It’s such a contrast to our town,” Drayman said. “We always feel that the aura of Norman Rockwell is sort of floating right above the street.” Alex Dobuzinskis, (818) 546-3304 email@example.com 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

The Ultimate Checklist on Ways to Prevent IoT D… Clayton Jacobs Tags:#Amazon#IIoT#Internet of Things#IoT#retail Related Posts How IoT Will Transform Cold Chain Logistics For… 5 Industries Destined for Technological Disruption This article is part of a series about the importance of cross-cultural design, other installments of which have been published over the last month.Before mentioning anything about Amazon, the scale of its problem must be described. In 2014, after disappointing results for their business in China, Wolfe Research Analyst Aram Rubinson estimated that Amazon was operating at a $600 million USD a year loss in China. Wow.See Also: Bezos: “I would never say” no to Amazon wearablesLike Walmart (which is discussed in the fourth installment of this series), Amazon has a long history in China, beginning with its $75 million acquisition of the Chinese online book retailer Joyo.com in 2004. Yet even with the purchase of a profitable company, the firm couldn’t seem to grow its site to the scale and profitability experienced in the West. It has only an estimated 1-3% market share in China. This small percentage of the market indicates a problem as its sites receive lots of visitors who must be simply browsing without making a purchase. The American, British, and Japanese versions of Amazon’s websites are all in the top 50 most-visited websites in China according to Alexa (most often times the versions from other countries will reroute the user to amazon.cn, the Amazon website specifically for China).A possible reason users are simply browsing instead of purchasing could be that there are two markets in China for people purchasing goods, and Amazon doesn’t really target either of these. The two markets are white label items which are extremely inexpensive and verified branded items sold at a higher cost directly from the brand. Alibaba has directly attacked both of these market segments. As discussed earlier in connection with eBay (see the third installment of this series), Taobao allows the sale of extremely cheap items from consumer to consumer. Alibaba’s more recent Tmall allows, for a fee, brands to verify their products as legitimate while selling directly to consumers.Amazon needs to speak more clearly to Chinese consumersWhile it is somewhat understandable that Amazon has tried to simply repeat a model that has had great success in a number of international markets, if the company wants its brand and businesses to have more than low-level success in China, it must do a better job of speaking to Chinese consumers. It could develop a strategy that creates companies or divisions which compete with Taobao and Tmall directly in the two market segments. However, since it is late in doing so and has allowed them to dominate those markets, the firm is in a tricky spot. Perhaps it could figure out and uniquely solve some problem for the Chinese consumer.Here is an example of another Amazon misstep: Amazon Prime is a service widely loved in America. It provides free two-day shipping, as well as access to streamable audio and video, among other things. In October 2016, it was announced that Amazon Prime would be rolled out to China for a lower cost and with fewer features. The focus of China’s Amazon Prime is free shipping on items costing more than $29 regardless of their nation of origin. While this may be a desired feature, Amazon Prime in China could have been used to provide services specifically desired by the Chinese. For example, there is a very large market for pay-to-win games in China and Amazon has a digital currency for in-game purchases. It could have given a yearly allowance of digital currency with Amazon Prime to drive interest. Instead, they simply copied and pasted its American approach.It seems Amazon never truly tried to problem solve by tweaking its products or services to relate to China-specific issues. As CEO Jeff Bezos said himself in regard to their China strategy, “We mostly tried to roll out what worked well for us in Japan, Germany, the U.K., Spain, France, Italy, the U.S., etc., and it needed more local market customization. If you want me to give one meta-lesson, it’s that one.”See Also: Amazon patents a floating delivery-drone mother zeppelinAmazon is a prime example of a company which thought it could succeed in an entirely different market just by continuing to do business as usual without good market and customer analysis. This method of going about globalizing a product will almost never result in good success and analysts are actually calling for Amazon to pull out of China. It seems that Amazon’s executives are not willing to do the type of market research that will allow it to better speak to the Chinese consumer.One would hope that a company as large and advanced as Amazon would learn its lesson from massive financial losses in China, but it seems unfortunately that it is prone to making the same mistake again. Bezos has announced that Amazon plans to invest around $5 billion USD in the next three years in India to try to establish itself there. India is another complicated market which, like China, greatly differs from the West, but Amazon has implied it will again copy and paste its business model there without changes.The author is Clayton “CJ” Jacobs, who is currently an Entrepreneur-in-Residence with, and the Head of Cross-Cultural Design at, ReadWrite.

by Robin Allen MSPH, RDN, LDNWhen my children were growing up have the family together for mealtimes was important not always possible. My husband worked odd hours frequently when he was not there until the kids were in bed. So I confess to succumbing to faster, more convenience foods. Then as they grew up activities started interfering and we found ourselves at a drive through between work, cross country, cheerleading, school plays, music lessons, gymnastics, ice skating etc. Sometimes nutrition and family meals took a back seat to a busy schedule. I wish I had appreciated the importance of making time for family meals.The following are some key take a ways and resources shared in the webinar.At the beginning of the webinar we asked the participants the following question. Below are the answers given by the participants. I can certainly relate to all of them!What do you consider the major barriers to sharing meals for contemporary families?Time, media, busy lifestyles, picky eaters, evening activities, many younger families to not know how to cook, no cooking skills, children’s schedules, sports, clubs, lack of cooking skills, conflicting schedules, unplugging, working mom, adult schedules, children are over-involved and there is no time left for family, fast food is easy, money, working parents, home cooking is too hard, too much time too costly,The key elements for Healthy MealtimesPlanning aheadPositive CommunicationReduce Noise and DistractionFlexible enough to meet demands of busy family lifeNotes from the webinar to help with family mealtimes:Create a routine, with time, place predictability, role for all, order repetition, flexibility, sense of control and efficacy.Frequently mealtimes are filled with chaos, variable times, random settings, unpredictable, shifting roles, lack of order, feeling out of control, stress and strain, sense of urgency, background noise.Mealtime FAQs:Most shared family mealtimes last between 18-20 minutes63% of family members eat dinner together “frequently” or “always”Families with children under 18 eat dinner together “frequently” or “always” 77% of the time86% of parents agreed that dinnertime was the best time for family members to get together and talk, next best place is in the car.Primary barriers to sharing meals in families with preschool-aged children:Problematic BehaviorSibling FightsPicky EatingChild TantrumsScheduling DifficultiesParent WorkSupport from Partner46% of families interviewed in a CDC report stated they had a television where they ate.Parents of young children report using television during mealtimes as a way to avoid conflict.Integrated AdvertisingAdvergamesSocial MediaAdolescents equate quality of information with quantity (e.g., viral videos)Young children and adolescents equate nutrition quality with positive emotions evoked during advergames.Resources for Families or Providers:Ann Hall MRE, RDN, LDN Child Nutrition Programs, NETTA Division shared the following USDA resources after the webinar:MyPlate, MyWins , at www.choosemyplate.gov/myplate-mywins is all about finding a healthy eating style that works for your family and fits with your everyday life.
