QPR fans on Twitter react to report Sherwood could take over

first_imgEmbed from Getty ImagesQPR fans on Twitter have given a mixed reaction to a report suggesting that Tim Sherwood is being lined up to replace Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink as manager.The Sun claimed on Thursday that ex-Tottenham and Aston Villa boss Sherwood – who was poised for the Rangers job after Harry Redknapp’s departure in February 2015 – is under consideration again.Many QPR fans felt it would be a step backwards, with some hoping Hasselbaink will be given until the end of the season.#qpr let’s please give jimmy this season – if it’s still inconsistent then let’s look elsewhere- sherwood would be a step back imho— Monners (@monners1969) November 3, 2016Would be incredibly disappointed if we hired Tactics Tim.

Not a new rumour. Did they not see what he did at Villa?! Useless— Chris Hermitage (@ChrisHermitage) November 3, 2016Rumors of Sherwood now.

7 Best Free Tools for Bootstrapped Startups

first_imgBrad is the editor overseeing contributed content at ReadWrite.com. He previously worked as an editor at PayPal and Crunchbase. You can reach him at brad at readwrite.com. Tags:#bootstrapping#business growth#Entrepreneur#free tools#startup#startup apps#startup operations#startup tools#Tools Not many startups have enterprise-level budgets. Founders are always looking for low- or no-cost ways to grow their companies without sacrificing quality. Unfortunately, founders of bootstrapped startups also tend to be exceptionally busy, which means they rarely have time to research all the best options on the market. If you need help finding the best free software for your business, fear not. These tools offer incredible functionality with no strings attached:1. OnPayEntrepreneurs focus so much on their products and go-to-market strategies, they sometimes get bogged down in the day-to-day realities of running a business. No matter how brilliant your business plan or how dedicated your employees, you still have to pay everyone the right amount on time if you want to keep your team together and productive.If a payroll service doesn’t fit in the budget quite yet, OnPay’s payroll calculator lets you figure out exactly how much to pay employees and how much to withhold for taxes. It can also figure out deductions for 401(k) and HSA contributions. If you have a custom deduction like a voluntary charitable contribution, you can include that, too.2. Google AnalyticsEvery company with a website should use Google Analytics. As the king of the internet, Google can help you understand the effectiveness of your marketing campaigns and gain insight into the sources of your web traffic.Plenty of other companies compete in the crowded analytics space, but Google’s free options provide everything small companies need. You can access intuitive charts, detailed reports, and more, then share your findings with your teams through other Google products to design more effective marketing plans. If you decide you need more juice, Google has premium options as well.3. BplansWhen an investor or potential partner wants to see your business plan, do you know how to write a great one? If not, you’re in luck, because Bplans has all the templates and advice you need. With more than 500 sample plans for industries ranging from technology to finance and everywhere in between, Bplans provides an essential service for companies just getting started. Whether you’re looking for your first big investment or planning to shift directions, check out the options on Bplans to clarify your goals and look professional in the process.4. MailChimpMailChimp offers an incredible deal for small companies looking to grow from small subscriber lists. Its free plan lets you send 10,000 emails every month to up to 2,000 subscribers without paying a dime for the privilege. Sure, MailChimp would like you to grow your business enough to pay for one of its larger plans, but wouldn’t you like that, too? Don’t be afraid of committing to an email service you may not like down the road — for free and paid subscribers alike, MailChimp is one of the best options on the market.5. SurveyGizmoSmall businesses need to know how their customers feel. Quit guessing about consumer sentiment, and ask your audience directly using SurveyGizmo’s free account.The free version of SurveyGizmo lets you have three surveys open at a time. You can collect up to 100 responses per survey and ask questions with a variety of answer styles (multiple choice, short answer, rating scale, etc.). Again, this tool is better suited to businesses with smaller customer bases looking to expand, but the paid tools for larger companies are more than worth the investment.6. SlackInternal communications shouldn’t slow down your productivity. With Slack, you can take advantage of tools like instant messaging, video calls, file sharing, and more for $0 a day.The free plan lets you keep 10,000 searchable messages on hand, just in case you need to prove to someone that you definitely called the winner of last night’s game. Slack doesn’t limit channels on the free plan, so you can create new channels for every project, interest, team, or whatever else suits your needs.7. ApptivoMost CRM tools feel packed with unnecessary features and designed for companies that have thousands of employees. Apptivo is different. Apptivo’s free plan allows you to connect up to three users and provides all the basic functionality a growing company needs in a CRM without any of the fluff.Paid plans start at just $8 per user per month, so even if you outgrow the free option, you won’t have to break the bank to keep things running. Until you hire new people, though, you shouldn’t need to upgrade. The free plan includes everything from opportunity management to notifications. If you have a small team and need some help to boost your sales, look no further.As a small business owner, you might feel like everyone’s out to get a piece of your income. These great tools prove that’s not the case. Instead of shelling out cash to handle every business function, keep more of your money and use these free options so you can build on a budget.

Avalanche Canada issues special avalanche warning for this weekend

first_imgREVELSTOKE, B.C. – Avalanche Canada has issued a special public avalanche warning for backcountry users.The warning went into effect Thursday afternoon and will remain in place until Sunday for the following regions:  Lizard Range and Flathead, Purcells, Kootenay Boundary, North Rockies, South & North Columbia, Cariboos, Sea-to-Sky, South Coast, South Coast Inland and Northwest Coastal. For a map of the regions involved, click here.After a prolonged drought in late November and early December, the province has been hit with a series of storms that have dropped a significant amount of snow. This new snow is not bonding well to the old surface that formed during the drought. “Our main concern is that we are expecting the weather to clear on Saturday,” explains James Floyer, senior avalanche forecaster for Avalanche Canada. “After all this rain in the valleys, backcountry users are going to want to hit the alpine but that’s where the danger is greatest. There’s a very weak layer now buried anywhere between 60 and 150 cm. Any avalanche triggered on that layer will definitely be life threatening.”Avalanche Canada warns anyone accessing higher elevation terrain to be aware of this hazard. This means skiers and boarders leaving ski resort boundaries and snowmobilers riding at or above the treeline. Everyone in a backcountry party needs the essential rescue gear—transceiver, probe and shovel—and know how to use it. And always check the current avalanche conditions at www.avalanche.ca.last_img read more

Big Ten Tournament forecast foggy with a chance of upsets

Grant FrekingLantern reporterfreking.4@osu.edu 1. The tournament is Ohio State’s to lose. Sure, Michigan State is a deeper team and Wisconsin is a popular sleeper pick, but OSU has the ultimate trump card in Evan Turner. The likely Big Ten and National Player of the Year is capable of taking over and dominating any of the teams in the bracket. The Buckeyes’ only concern is depth, since coach Thad Matta rarely plays more than one or two guys off the bench.2. Illinois-Wisconsin will produce a surprise winner. Illinois shot itself in the foot to end the regular season, dropping five of its last six to put its NCAA Tournament hopes squarely on the bubble. However, they have a poor man’s Evan Turner in guard and fellow St. Joseph product Demetri McCamey, who is capable of breaking down opposing defenses like his high school teammate. A win over Wisconsin could be enough for the Fighting Illini to sneak into the NCAA Tournament.3. Purdue could falter in the quarterfinals. Now that star forward Robbie Hummel is out for the season, the Boilermakers’ front-court depth is questionable. If JaJuan Johnson gets into foul trouble, Purdue becomes a below-average offensive team and is very capable of being beaten by either Indiana or Northwestern.4. The Big Ten failed to live up to the hype this season. The conference sent seven teams to the NCAA Tournament last season and national pundits predicted that as many as eight teams would make it this season. However, Michigan and Minnesota struggled with inconsistency and were colossal disappointments. Moreover, Northwestern, hoping to gain a bid to the tournament for the first time in school history, had their hopes extinguished in November when the team’s leading scorer, Kevin Coble, broke his foot and opted for season-ending surgery. 5. Ohio State will prevail over Michigan State in the Big Ten Tournament finale. Evan Turner will begin his postseason crusade by shredding the Spartan defense and putting the Buckeyes up early, similar to what happened when OSU visited East Lansing last month. The Buckeyes will hold off Sparty, and depending on Duke’s ACC Tournament success, may secure a No. 1 seed. Zack MeiselSports editormeisel.14@osu.edu 1. People should stop sleeping on the Wisconsin Badgers. Bo Ryan’s crew finished just one game behind the Big Ten champion trio of Ohio State, Michigan State and Purdue. The Badgers won their final four regular season games by an average of 20.3 points per contest. Plus, Wisconsin recently welcomed forward Jon Leuer back from injury. The 6-foot-10-inch junior promptly responded by winning the Big Ten Player of the Week award last week.2. The first round should be a snooze-fest. Don’t expect lowly Indiana to give Northwestern trouble. To prevent its bubble from being burst, expect Minnesota to fend off Penn State. And whoever wins the Michigan-Iowa matchup will only matter for another 24 hours before losing to Ohio State. The hard-fought, intense games won’t begin until the quarterfinals on Friday.3. The NCAA Tournament committee will be praying that a Cinderella isn’t still alive come 3:30  Sunday. Should Michigan, Penn State or Northwestern sneak into the tournament final, the committee will be sweating it out. Since the Big Ten Championship game is the last one to take place, the NCAA Tournament bracket is usually mapped out before the game’s conclusion. A team hovering around mediocrity could throw a wrench into the committee’s plans by advancing on to Sunday.4. No Big Ten team will receive a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament. However, at least two will receive No. 2 seeds. Unless Duke falters very early in the ACC Tournament, the final No. 1 seed will belong to Coach K’s Blue Devils. The winner of the Big Ten Tournament will likely receive a No. 2 seed, as long as the winner is Ohio State, Purdue or Michigan State. If any of those teams reach the tournament final, that squad should also earn a No. 2. 5. Michigan State will top Ohio State for the Big Ten Tournament title. The Spartans peaked in March last season, when they surprised everyone outside of East Lansing by reaching the NCAA Championship game. Their depth could give OSU trouble, since the Buckeyes rarely play more than six players. Joshua A. DavidsonLantern reporterdavidson.252@osu.edu 1. If there is such a thing as a sleeper in the conference tournament, Michigan is it. The Maize and Blue are led by Manny Harris and DeShawn Sims, two of the most talented players in the Big Ten. After being a top 15 team in the preseason, Michigan has severely underachieved. However, a conference tournament championship still provides the Wolverines with a berth in the NCAA Tournament, which is plenty of motivation for their two-star upperclassmen.2. The most intriguing game in this year’s tournament is probably the quarterfinal matchup between Wisconsin and Illinois. The Fighting Illini will be battling for an NCAA berth and another quality win over Wisconsin could lock up an at-large bid. However, Bo Ryan’s Badgers are a tough out in the Big Ten Tournament and are playing to improve their own seed come Selection Sunday. The border rivals split their regular season games, both teams winning on the road.3. Look for Michigan State’s Raymar Morgan to be the tournament’s Most Outstanding Player. The forward possesses tremendous talent but has been inconsistent throughout his career. But now, as a senior, this is Morgan’s last chance at Spartan immortality and he’s playing like it. Morgan scored a season-high 22 points on senior night in East Lansing, Mich., for the Spartans’ last game. Also MSU needs to replace the scoring of suspended guard Chris Allen. Look for Morgan to pick up the slack.4. Curse of the No. 1 seed: of the 12 previous Big Ten Tournaments, the top seed has only won four times. Fans of top-seeded Ohio State shouldn’t expect to be dancing on the court at Conseco Fieldhouse come Sunday. However, if the Buckeyes do claim the tournament championship, they look to be destined for greatness in the NCAA Tournament. Three of the four No. 1 seeds who did win the conference tournament advanced to the Final Four. 5. Even with Chris Allen suspended, Michigan State has the talent and depth to win the Big Ten Tournament. Tom Izzo’s teams are built for tournament play, as can be seen by his five Final Four appearances. The Spartans will defeat Wisconsin on Sunday to claim their third conference tournament championship. In turn, MSU will lock up a No. 2 seed in the NCAA Tournament. read more

Everton boss frustrated by defeat

first_imgThe Everton Marco Silva was unhappy after receiving a goal and then seeing how Kurt Zouma was sent off.A single goal by Andre Gay gave Watford the 1-0 victory over Everton in the English Premier League on Saturday.And the Blues are now in the ninth position of the table with 33 points, after only nine wins, six draws and 12 defeats.This has led coach Marco Silva very frustrated.“When you do not achieve the result and do not score goals with the chances we created, it is a big frustration for us,” Silva told the club’s official website.“The first half was balanced, they created one good chance and we had a very good chance with Cenk Tosun.”“Second half was the same again. They started to create more problems with their long balls,” he commented.“I felt Andre Gomes and Gana were getting tired after we played on Wednesday night. Watford had one week to prepare for the game.”“I changed Andre and was preparing to put on Bernard when they scored,” Silva continued.“We reacted [to going behind].”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.“We had two balls off the bar and one clear chance for Dominic,” the manager said.“We created enough chances to score but were not effective [with our finishing]. Sometimes in these moments, something can happen – but it is only us who can work more to change things.”“When you play away and create the chances we did – and clear chances in some moments – we have to be more effective,” the Everton boss commented.“In one moment they will start to go in and we’ll start to win matches.”“But there is just one way: work more, become more confident and look forward and try to change things,” he added.“It is a good moment to rest the players, then bring them back to prepare for the next match against Cardiff and the derby against Liverpool.”💬 | The boss delivers his post-match verdict: A frustrating afternoon. #EFCawayday— Everton (@Everton) February 9, 2019last_img read more

Police Commissioner Issues Press Release

first_img Recommended for you Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 10 Nov 2014 – Police Commissioner Colin Farquhar explained the RTCIPF will issue a press release on the results of the sufficiency hearing in the case of suspended officer, Constable Mikhail Hinson, who was on Friday released from answering to the five charges of setting fire. The court determined there was not enough evidence to go forward with the case. Hinson, 24, was arrested, suspended and remanded to Her Majesty’s Prison for the late September arson at the Chalk Sound police station where the building and four vehicles were set ablaze. Magnetic Media in a letter of concern cited that the Police Force continues to be standoffish with media and the public about major crimes in the country, our company adding that perhaps this is among the reasons there is such lackluster of support from the general public when it comes to investigations. Still outstanding: sufficient leads and evidence in the murder probe of businessman Robert Been Sr from March 4 this year; an update in the new investigation of Damaris Martinez of the Dominican Republic; the jury returned a not guilty for Romano Howell on October 8… however it is certain the woman was murdered by someone and her body dumped on the roadside here in Provo; no updates in the case of North Caicos’ Quincy Gardiner where media is still waiting on the results of an autopsy and for an update on what will happen to the man once held for questioning the case. And now Police will have to start over in the case to find who is responsible for the torching one of the new police patrol vehicles. These are but some of the cases where it is reported that evidence is insufficient to move to a full trial.
