  • No urgency in Wenger talks

    first_img Press Association The French coach, who turns 64 next month, will come to the end of his current deal in the summer of 2014 but has indicated he would be open to extending his stay. He continues to hold the full support of owner Stan Kroenke and the board, with chief executive Ivan Gazidis stressing earlier this summer negotiations would continue quietly behind the scenes. Wenger proved key in the record-breaking £42million deal to bring Mesut Ozil from Real Madrid on transfer deadline day, and has always maintained the continued drive for success on the pitch comes ahead of any speculation over his own future. Speaking before the Barclays Premier League win over Tottenham ahead of the international break, Wenger stressed: “Look, my future at the moment is not the most important thing. “I am not on the transfer market, so that is not a priority.” center_img Arsenal remain relaxed over contract talks with manager Arsene Wenger, Press Association Sport understands.last_img read more

  • Eddie try seals Glasgow win

    first_imgJames Eddie’s converted try with the last move of the game sealed a 13-12 win for Glasgow at Ravenhill in dramatic style as Ulster fell to their second successive Rabo Direct Pro12 defeat. Indeed, with Glasgow prop Moray Low sin-binned late on, anything other than an Ulster win seemed inconceivable but the home side can only blame themselves for their misfortune having blown a host of try-scoring opportunities to seal the result with their only scores coming from four Paddy Jackson penalties. Stuart Hogg, playing his first game since the Lions tour, opened the scoring for the Warriors in the fifth minute with a penalty after Johann Muller’s high tackle on Ruaridh Jackson, but Ulster quickly hit back when Paddy Jackson replied two minutes later. Paddy Jackson then landed his second three-pointer just before the end of the first quarter after some great offloading from Roger Wilson and Nick Williams and did so again after 20 minutes with a long range effort. But Hogg closed the gap to 9-6 after Ulster strayed offside four minutes before the half hour. Ulster responded with some eye-catching play from Williams and the impressive Ian Porter and this, in turn, led to Paddy Jackson’s fourth penalty which sailed between the posts to take the home side’s lead to 12-6. Then, just at the end of the half, Darren Cave was penalised at the breakdown but Hogg was wide with the effort much to Ulster’s relief. Ulster upped their tempo in the second half but neither side was able to score with the home team seeing three scoring chances go begging. Michael Allen, Luke Marshall and David McIlwaine all had chances to cross for Ulster with the latter actually getting over the line but being held up by a combination of Jonny Gray and Tommy Seymour. Ulster also failed to put any points on the board from the tee with Paddy Jackson’s 67th-minute penalty sailing wide but they continued to dominate possession and territory, while Low’s sin-binning ensured the Warriors had to dig even deeper to not concede any further points. Even down to 14 men, though, the visitors resisted and even had a five-metre scrum in the latter stages only to concede a penalty and allow Ulster to relieve the pressure. They were not finished and after DTH van der Merwe was hauled down by Iain Henderson, the Warriors stayed in the Ulster 22 and from a tap penalty, substitute Eddie crashed over with Hogg’s conversion sealing the most unlikely of wins. On a night when Ravenhill paid tribute to Nevin Spence, who died a year ago in a farm tragedy along with his father Noel and brother Graham, the home side wasted a glorious opportunity to seal a game which they led 12-6 at half-time. Instead Gregor Townsend’s men stole away with the four points to remain unbeaten after two games while Ulster had only a losing bonus point – the same gain they managed from their shock 15-8 defeat at Newport Gwent Dragons the week before. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

  • CDC clears Dominica of Hanta Virus

    first_imgThe Centers for Disease Control (CDC) in the United States says there is no positive case of the unusual Hanta Virus spread by rodents in hurricane-battered Dominica.Late last month, Dominica’s Chief medical officer, Dr. David Johnson said the authorities were awaiting confirmation of a preliminary test to determine whether the island had registered its first case of Hanta Virus even as an epidemiological investigation had not found similar cases on the island.Johnson said there had been no cases of the virus in the Caribbean in the recent past and “the studies we have seen and working with our other creditable buddies including the Pan American Health Organization, we were able to confirm that there is no case circulating in the region certainly between 1998 and 2017.”Transmitted by rodent infestationThe disease does not spread from person to person. The mode of transmission of the virus is similar to leptospirosis. Rodent infestation in and around the home remains the primary risk for the virus exposure.But Dr. Johnson, speaking on the state-owned DBS radio, said that “the way it is transmitted (is) through a special type of mice not found in the region.“That is why when we got preliminary results with regards to Hanta Virus we had to seek confirmation from a reputable source …the Centres for Disease Control in Atlanta and no one can doubt the reputation of CDC.“So I am happy to report that we got back results from CDC indicating that that case was negative for Hanta Virus disease. So we can say with absolute certainty now that there was no case, let me repeat no case of Hanta Virus circulating in Dominica,” Johnson said.SymptomsEarly symptoms of the virus include fatigue, fever and muscle aches, especially in the large muscle groups—thighs, hips, back, and sometimes shoulders. These symptoms are universal. There may also be headaches, dizziness, chills, and abdominal problems, such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea, and abdominal problems, such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea, and abdominal pain.last_img read more

  • ‘Adopt a nation’ for the World Cup

    first_img1 October 2008South Africa has launched the “Adopt a Nation” school campaign in the run-up the next year’s Fifa Confederations Cup and the 2010 Fifa World Cup, wherein both teachers and pupils will learn more about the various national teams that will participate during the tournaments.To be run by the 2010 local organising committee (LOC) in partnership with the national departments of education and sport, the campaign is targeting over 12-million scholars from over 30 000 schools throughout the country.“Our aim is to make this global event, located here in South Africa, appeal to every province and city across the country and the continent,” LOC chairperson Irvin Khoza said at the campaign’s launch in Johannesburg this week.He said that schools had been identified as the primary vehicle to get the World Cup message across to not only children, but families and communities around the country.“Our schools have a vital role to whet the appetite for the world’s showcase football events – next year’s Fifa Confederations Cup and the first African Fifa World Cup in 2010 – and we want every pupil in this country to be part of these historic events,” said Khoza.My 2010 school adventureThe campaign is part of the “My 2010 School Adventure” project, which focuses on the three key pillars of education, development (sports skills and coaching) and participation in regional and nationwide schools football tournaments.In the first phase, the pupils and teachers will as part of their school curriculum, learn more about the teams participating at next year’s Confederations Cup and build relationships with schools in the countries who have qualified.Schools have already been playing in provincial schools tournaments and the winning teams from all provinces will play in the schools Confederations Cup finals in March next year – standing a chance to win tickets to the tournament proper.The Fifa Confederations Cup, held from 14 to 28 June 2009, also known as the “Festival of Champions”, features the current champions of the six Fifa Confederations, reigning world champions and the hosts, namely Brazil, Egypt, Iraq, Italy, New Zealand, Spain, United States and hosts South Africa.From September 2008 to January 2009, pupils from across the country will work on creative elements such as essays, poetry, art projects, music and dance performances relating to the Confederations Cup, with the winning submissions also standing a chance to win tickets for the Confederations Cup 2009 and 2010 World Cup.Coaching coursesAnother aspect of the campaign is that thousands of teachers will also be given specialised coaching courses in an effort to improve the standard of schools football.“It is of major importance for our scholars – the future of our nation – to learn about the cultures and history of other countries, and what better way than to include them through a progressive programme such as ‘Adopt a Nation’ which will empower our young academics with knowledge that will stand them in good stead in years to come,” said Education Minister Naledi Pandor.Ambassadors and representatives from the eight Fifa Confederations Cup nations joined in the launch festivities, at which South Africa’s nine provinces symbolically “adopted” each one of the eight participants.The Official 2010 Fifa World Cup mascot Zakumi, who quickly gained popularity after his worldwide debut last week, was also on hand to entertain hundreds of school pupils at the launch event.“The ‘Adopt a Nation’ programme is a venture that will revolutionise sport and education in South Africa ahead of world class football tournaments,” said Sport and Recreation Minister Makhenkesi Stofile. “We trust that pupil’s aspirations on the sport and academic fronts will be taken to new heights as a result of their involvement in the programme.”Source: BuaNewslast_img read more

  • Mobile Healthcare Faces The Future [Infographic]

    first_imgThe Mobile Revolution continues to change how industry after industry goes about day-to-day business. Yet one industry has been surprisingly slow to embrace the benefits of mobile: healthcare. Many observers find that strange, since healthcare could clearly benefit from the power of smartphones and tablets attached to the cloud. Several things have slowed adoption of mobile in healthcare. Antiquated policies designed for a different era have been a major factor. For instance, what does it mean to be HIPAA compliant in a mobile world? HIPAA regulations rule how healthcare practitioners can store and transfer data on patients to protect both the privacy of the patient and the liability to doctors and nurses. HIPAA regulations are fairly complex and rigid (for a good reason, to be sure) and have scared off some mobile healthcare (mHealth) startups – at least until HIPAA can be updated to reflect the change in the technological landscape.There’s also the question of culture. For decades, the primary patient interface for doctors, technicians and nurses has been the paper chart attached to a clipboard. Digitizing of patient records is a long, arduous process that many clinics have declined to undertake. Doctors face significant blowback from administrators sitting in front of bookshelves crammed full manila folders of patient histories. (On a trip to my physician’s office a couple years back, I asked him if he used a smartphone to make his life easier. He showed me his BlackBerry and an app that helps him find the appropriate prescription for certain maladies. I asked him if he could digitize his entire file system and carry around an iPad or some such device to make his life easier. “I would love to,” he told me. “But I would lose half my staff if I ever changed how the system works.” )We are starting to see progress in mHealth adoption: According to researchers, 62% of doctors use a tablet in some shape or form and 71% of nurses use a smartphone at work. The mHealth industry is forecast to be a $11.8 billion market by 2018.Mobile healthcare is about more than just how doctors and nurses operate on a day-to-day basis. Mobile technology promises to contribute to wellness, preventative care, personal health records, communication with physicians, diet tracking, prescription reminders and many other health-related improvements. For instance, 30% of smartphone users are expected to use wellness apps in one form or another by 2015. By that year, analysts predict there will be nearly two billion smartphone users on the planet. You do the math.Check out this infographic from mHeath consultancy  [x]Cube Labs for a cross section of the mHealth industry, where it has been and how it can help healthcare providers and consumers alike.

  • The Reload: OSU Offers Kansas Commitment, Pushing Hard for 2018 LB DaShaun White

    first_imgThe Reload is PFB’s recruiting recap, catching you up to speed on the latest news and rumors regarding Oklahoma State recruiting.OSU giving full court press to top linebacker target DaShaun WhiteOklahoma State has two linebackers in the fold for 2018 in outside linebacker and safety Kolby Peel and inside linebacker Blake Barron. But Glenn Spencer isn’t yet done, making North Richland Hills (Texas) outside linebacker DaShaun White his top priority on the trail.White is set to narrow his list of top schools soon, and he says OSU is expected to be among that cut because of his relationship with a former Cowboy player turned graduate assistant.“Believe it or not, I actually have my best relationship with graduate assistant Andre Sexton,” White told Rivals. “He’s been talking to me since one of my games last season and started recruiting me early … He’s a coach that makes me feel at home, so with that, that’s really the biggest thing for me. With the culture they have there, I think they’re going to be a really good football team there the next couple of years.”White now has 19 Division I offers after blowing up this spring which include Oklahoma, UCLA, Texas A&M, TCU and others.Jabbar Muhammad offer No. 1 for 2020 prospectOklahoma State is offer No. 1 for 2020 cornerback Jabbar Muhammad of DeSoto, Texas, where OSU has had a great deal of success recruiting over the years. Chris Lacy and A.J. Green are currently on the roster and DeSoto alums, and Green took to Twitter after Muhammad’s offer to encourage OSU fans to show him some love.Muhammad is a 5-foot-10 prospect who will be a sophomore next season.Eddie Smith, 2018 cornerback, offered by OSUCornerback remains a major priority in the 2018 class and Eddie Smith of Slidell, Louisiana, is the latest target. Smith, like early enrollee Lamarcus Morton, plays both wide receiver and cornerback but OSU likes him at corner. He’s a three-star prosect with offers from Mississippi State, Tennessee, Texas Tech and others. Smith played both sides of the ball last season and had a good deal of success catching 11 passes for 275 yards and five touchdowns, while recording 33 tackles, one tackle for loss, two INT’s, and one defensive TD for DeSoto.In state lineman offered by OSUFollowing a recent unofficial visit, fast-rising in-state two-way lineman Jacob Farrell reported a visit from OSU. Farrell is a 6-foot-6, 280 pound prospect who Josh Henson recently paid a visit to, which gives rise to the thought that OSU could (and likely is) set to target five high school offensive linemen in the 2018 class.“The visit went great,” Farrell told Scout of his visit. “We checked out all the facilities and they showed us all over the campus. I liked what I saw.”Along with OSU, Farrell now has opportunities from Kansas, Texas Tech and Utah State.2018 wide receiver Jonathan Shepherd offeredOSU’s lone wide receiver commit in the 2018 class is a big one in Tulsa Union’s C.J. Moore, but that isn’t the only pass-catcher OSU is taking in the class. The staff has its sights set on three-star Kilgore receiver Jonathan Shepherd, who reported the offer this week. Subsequently, prediction in OSU’s favor was made in his 247sports crystal ball. While you’re here, we’d like you to consider subscribing to Pistols Firing and becoming a PFB+ member.

Help us keep that up.center_img Shepherd also holds offers from TCU, Texas Tech and New Mexico, among others. Scout recently tagged him as an up-and-comer to watch in the Texas area.In a field full of good receivers, Shepherd stood out and has solidified himself as one of the very best sleeper prospects in the entire state of Texas. The 6-foot-4, 182-pounder won several 1-on-1 reps as his frame and top-end speed give him a dangerous combination. He has made recent unofficial stops in at LSU and Texas.Kansas commit offered by OSUTevailance Hunt joined Shepherd among wide receivers who were offered this week. The Kansas commitment from Texas High committed to Kansas just a month ago, and OSU is the only school to offer since.Hunt caught 36 passes for 701 yards last season and 10 touchdowns during Texas High’s 10-0 regular season.Hunt’s Texas High teammate Quin Hampton is signed with Kansas and will be a receiver next season for the Jayhawks, a big factor in his decision to commit last month. But don’t be surprised to see OSU and others look to break that commitment as summer rolls on.Running backs coach Wozniak in to see 2018 targetOklahoma State landed and signed 2017 running back J.D. King last cycle, and this cycle it remains in the mix for 2018 dual-threat quarterback James Graham, whom OSU has offered as a running back. Running backs coach John Wozniak was in recently to stop and check on Graham in Georgia.From Scout on what he does best on the gridiron.James Graham is a 6-foot-1, 180 pound athlete out of Fitzgerald (Ga.).  He plays quarterback for the Hurricanes and he helped them get to the state championship game in 2015.  He loves to have the ball in his hands, and he is very good with it.  His position preference is quarterback, but he is being recruited as an athlete due to his ability to play wide receiver, running back and defensive back.  At quarterback, Graham is a runner first.  They do not throw the ball a lot in his offense, so he has a ways to go as a passer, but he is an exceptional athlete who can hurt defenses with his legs.  When watching him play, I think wide receiver because he is fluid in the open field and a great runner with the ball in his hands.  But, you see the type of athlete he is, and he’d be fun to look at as a cornerback with his size and length.  He is a versatile player who could end up on either side of the ball on the next level.  He has a nice burst in the speed department. [Scout]Graham says OSU has an edge in his recruitment because he has a teammate who will be on campus, as does Virginia Tech. It seems he’s really looking to find a fit where he can play quarterback at the next level, however with Spencer Sanders committed, that might be a deterrent for him picking OSU. He’s likely to take his recruitment down closer to signing day, which could benefit OSU, as he plans to make official visits during his senior year.last_img read more

  • Dez Bryant Says He Was Pulled Over (And Let Go) Once for Going 180 MPH

    first_imgLife as a professional athlete isn’t always glory and fame off the playing field, but it sure does have its perks as Dez Bryant has apparently realized.In an interview shortly after meeting the Indy 500 winner this weekend, Bryant was quizzed about car-related questions in his own life, which lead to the question everyone wanted to know but was scared to ask: What’s the fastest you have ever driven?“Back in my heydays,” Bryant said, “I’m gonna do it. I don’t care. I don’t do it anymore … but when I first got my license, I got it suspended for a year because I was going a little bit too fast. The fastest I have been .. probably about 180.”WHEN YOU FIRST GOT YOUR LICENSE YOU WENT 180?! My first car was a Honda Civic and I know personally that thing wouldn’t go over 100 without shaking a couple lugnuts loose. But wait, who drives a Bentley as a new driver?“Hey hey hey hey hey hey hey hey hey hey hey hey move on I gave you all some good info now,” Bryant responded after he was asked about the Bentley.Bryant says he was eventually pulled over after the officer had to turn his lights off and sneak up on him for his stunt but got off with a warning because “the cop thought it was pretty cool.”What a story.After meeting the winner of the Indy 500, @DezBryant tells a wild story about getting pulled over while driving his Bentley. pic.twitter.com/bCA41AyN82— FOX Sports: NFL (@NFLonFOX) June 1, 2017 While you’re here, we’d like you to consider subscribing to Pistols Firing and becoming a PFB+ member.
