Džeko Impatient before Argentina: This is What We’ve Been Waiting for 20 Years

first_img“We’ve been waiting for the past 20 years that the representation goes to some big competition and you could see it in the people’s eyes how much they were happy when we succeeded in that. They had forgotten all of their troubles and the only important thing was that B&H qualified for Brazil”, said Džeko. (Source: SportCentar.ba) Member of the national team of Bosnia & Herzegovina and the striker of England’s Manchester City Edin Džeko said in a statement for the club’s website that he impatiently awaits the encounter with the representation of Argentina, with which will begin the first Mundial in its history, reports Anadolu Agency (AA). He added that he can barely waits for the appearance of B&H on the World Championship in Brazil, and he emphasized that “We have fantastic fans that have made it possible for us to feel like at home wherever we play. After the wictory in Lithuania we immediately flew to Sarajevo where 50.000 people welcomed us in the streets at 3am.” Džeko added that Argentina is the favorite, not only in group F but in the whole Mundial, and the goal of B&H is to, through Iran and Nigeria, achieve the next phase of the competition which would be a great success.last_img read more

“We will hire world class expertise” – Harmon

first_img…says Dr Bynoe does not have to be oil & gas expertNoting that the President used his prerogative and judgement to appoint Dr Mark Bynoe as the new head of the Department of Energy, Minister of State, Joseph Harmon, maintained that world class oil and gas experts will eventually be hired afterwards.State Minister Joseph HarmonResponding to suggestions made on Monday that Dr Bynoe is not qualified enough for the job, Harmon said Dr Bynoe is an excellent choice, and he does not have to be a “world class” expert on oil and gas to head a department that would play a pivotal role in Guyana’s blossoming oil sector.“In the media, there has been some concern about the qualifications of Dr Bynoe, and whether he is the right man. He is an excellent choice for this department, and comes with excellent credentials. Besides his stated qualifications and the work he has done on climate change and the environment, I think I saw a letter from (Ramesh) Dookhoo from the private sector that says he was head of the PSC.“In addition to that, we will hire the people that are needed for the department. Dr Bynoe does not have to be a world class expert. He is now going to head up a team that will identify the specific skills needed for the department. And we are going to pay for that.”The Minister also explained that several principles would be used to establish the department. These include financing, operationalising and organising. According to Harmon, Government is in the organising phase.“Already there is some handing over taking place between Dr Bynoe and the Ministry of Natural Resources, the Petroleum section of that ministry. So it’s not like if we have a totally new kid on the block. We already have a structure, albeit not up to the mark in terms of what is required. We have a structure, and we are taking that into consideration. We already have advice on the structure.”PrerogativeQuestioned on whether there was a competitive process to appoint Dr Bynoe, Harmon noted that appointments of directors to head departments in the Ministry of the Presidency are entirely up to the President.“Dr Bynoe has been appointed from the 1 August as the Director of the Department of Energy. All departments under the Ministry of the Presidency are (staffed with) persons who are appointed by the President. So you have a Department of Energy, the Director was appointed by the President,” Harmon explained.“We have a Department of Public Service, and the director, who was the permanent secretary there, is also director. So departments under the Ministry of the Presidency are appointed by the President in his own deliberate judgement. There may be considerations that would be taken into account; but, by and large, in the Ministry (of the Presidency), the heads of those departments are appointed by the President.”Dr Bynoe is a former Director of the School of Earth and Environmental Sciences at the University of Guyana. By profession, he is an Environment and Resource Economist. There have been expressions of support and criticism since his appointment.Following a proposal he had made, Government had announced its intention in April of this year to take responsibility for the oil sector from Natural Resources Minister Raphael Trotman.Trotman himself had made the announcement in a taped interview with the Department of Public Information, in which he said, “Government will, in the coming months, establish the Department of Energy, which will be housed in the Ministry of the Presidency.”Trotman said also that the department would be “focused only on the development of the petroleum sector,” based on a proposal that he had made to President David Granger last year. Trotman, and indeed the Government, has received much criticism for the way the budding oil sector has been handled.Minister of State, Joseph Harmon, has been designated the holder of ministerial responsibility for this department. He announced the creation of this Energy Department to oversee Guyana’s oil and gas sector the very next month.last_img read more

Bruins roll past the young Griffins

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREThe top 10 theme park moments of 2019 Snyder scored two consecutive goals for Los Alamitos in the first quarter, and the teams were tied entering the second. That’s when Wilson (8-1), ranked No. 1 in CIF Southern Section Division I, decided to play soft perimeter defense and double-teamed Snyder in the post, forcing the Griffins’ perimeter players to beat the Bruins. The strategy worked as Los Alamitos (6-4), ranked No. 2 in Division II, wouldn’t pull the trigger and couldn’t get the ball into Snyder, and Wilson exploded with five unanswered goals, led by senior attacker Matt Sagehorn, who finished the game with six. Wilson’s lead went from 7-3 at halftime to 10-3 at the end of the third. In the fourth, Wilson coach Tony Martinho pulled his starters and replaced them with reserves, and Jeff Tsim of Los Alamitos went on to score three goals to put the game at 11-7 . “We were patient after the first four minutes of the game,” Martinho said. “We had to get into a flow of what we were trying to do. Defensively, we pressed them for a while. Then we (doubled) Snyder. That was pretty much it.” “You automatically lose if you are afraid or scared of the team you are playing against,” Los Alamitos coach Dave Carlson said. “Thank God this is the only team my guys are scared of. Corona del Mar is an awesome team, but my guys don’t know them. Newport is an awesome team, but my guys don’t know them. “So they aren’t scared of them,” Carlson added. “Our problem is my players know each one of (the Bruins). They know how good each individual player is. We ran the game plan. The main thing is that they are better than us. We took ourselves out of the game by being scared of them.” It would have taken seven Clayton Snyders in the water at the same time in order for the Los Alamitos High boys water polo team to have had a real shot at defeating Wilson on Tuesday night at Belmont Plaza Pool. The Bruins’ talent, experience, depth and reputation were too much for the young Griffins to handle. And Wilson rolled to a 11-7 victory in front of a large crowd in nonleague play. center_img Charles Wright of Wilson finished the game with two goals while his teammates Anthony Artukovich, Kyle Wootten and Scott La Bounty each added one. Byron Markel and Erik Stromlund each had one goal for Los Alamitos. Jacob McIntosh and Taylor Lapin combined for 10 saves, and Michael Delaney had eight for Los Alamitos. “It’s a compliment to (the Bruins) that our guys respect them so much,” Carlson said. “It’s a mental thing.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Blitzbokke capture Tokyo Sevens

first_img2 April 2013South Africa captured the Tokyo Sevens rugby title on Sunday, their second tournament victory in three events, after a superb second half effort lifted them past New Zealand by 24 points to 19.It was a remarkable turnaround for the Blitzbokke, who after winning the Las Vegas Sevens, were very disappointing in the Hong Kong Sevens where they finished bottom of their pool. However, a 31-0 thrashing of eventual runners-up Wales in Hong Kong showed what Paul Treu’s charges were capable of.Commenting on the victory in Japan, Treu said: “It’s unbelievable. We’ve been so unlucky at times throughout the season and to come back again after a disappointing tournament in Hong Kong, to bounce back and give this kind of performance – it’s not every day that you’re going to beat New Zealand twice [consecutively] in the final.”‘Happy’“Every win that comes your way is huge. I think we can go back to South Africa a happy team,” he added.It wasn’t all smooth going in Tokyo, however, as matters got off to a poor start when Fiji beat South Africa 29-12. There were opportunities for the Blitzbokke to win, but they were undone by errors and the bounce of the ball.Still not on top form, they returned to winning ways with a 12-0 win over Portugal before hitting their stride with a 42-7 pummelling of Spain. That left the Blitzbokke second in Pool A and saw them into the quarterfinals of the Cup.Day twoOn day two, they came back from 12-0 down to defeat Samoa 19-12 to reach the semi-finals. They followed that up with a narrow 14-12 win over France to book their place in the title-decider.Up against table-topping New Zealand, South Africa, like they had in the quarterfinals, fell behind 12-0. However, they were a different team in the second half, running in three tries and slotting a penalty before the Kiwis managed a converted try after the final hooter had sounded to finish within a try of the Blitzbokke.It was a repeat of the Las Vegas final and the win moved the Springbok Sevens onto 100 World Series points, up to second spot on the log, 32 points behind New Zealand and two ahead of third-placed Fiji.Tournament winsSouth Africa and Fiji are now the only teams to have won two tournaments so far this season.Treu said finding consistent form was the goal the Blitzbokke now need to focus on.“It’s still difficult for us to be consistent,” he said. “To become consistent like New Zealand, we need those key players [like Kyle Brown and Paul Delport] and we just hope they can recover soon and get back into this team as quickly as possible, especially for the World Cup in June.”Following the Tokyo tournament, the International Rugby Board confirmed the pool draw for round eight of the HSBC Sevens World Series, the Emirates Airline Glasgow Sevens at Scotstoun Stadium on 4 and 5 May 2013.CrucialIt’s a crucial tournament, which will decide which of the current teams will need to re-qualify as core teams next season.South Africa are in a very tough Pool A, up against Samoa, Kenya and Canada. Pool B includes the hosts, Scotland, New Zealand, England and Portugal.Australia, who beat France 31-7 to finish third in Tokyo, are in Pool C with Fiji, Argentina and Spain. Pool D is made up of France, the USA, Wales and Russia.Would you like to use this article in your publication or on your website? See: Using SAinfo materiallast_img read more

Mixed Reviews for Blackberry’s Tablet, But Will It Be a Good Enterprise Device?

first_img3 Areas of Your Business that Need Tech Now Tags:#enterprise#news The first reviews are coming in for the long-awaited Blackberry PlayBook, RIM’s new tablet. Now granted, the iPad is a tough act to follow (unless perhaps you’re the iPad 2), and most of the recent tablet entries have failed to win over fans, critics, or customers. Based on some of the early reviews, the PlayBook faces a similar uphill battle.Many of the reviews published over the last few days have focused on the same issues: solid hardware, but not enough apps. Of particular concern – or bafflement, even – is the fact that the PlayBook lacks some of the most basic apps, including email, contact, a calendar, a notepad, or even RIM’s famously popular BlackBerry Messager system. Some Sample ReviewsBGR’s Jonathan Geller: “Those used to Research In Motion’s old ways will be pretty shocked with the BlackBerry PlayBook’s hardware specifications. This is a whole new chapter in RIM’s history, and the company is coming out swinging. The PlayBook features a screaming 1GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, a 5-megapixel rear camera, a 3-megapixel front-facing camera, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, 1080p HD video playback with an HDMI-out port, a 3.5mm headset jack and a microphone, all wrapped up in a super sleek 10mm-thin package. The PlayBook’s 7-inch display is beautiful, and the 1024 x 600 resolution packs a lot of pixels into a tight space. Colors are rich and vibrant, and black levels seem quite good, as do with viewing angles.”The Wall Street Journal’s Walt Mossberg: “This odd system, aimed at pleasing security-concerned corporate customers, doesn’t work with other smartphones. So, in my view, even though Bridge is a neat technical feat, it makes the PlayBook a companion to a BlackBerry phone rather than a fully independent device. That may be fine for dedicated BlackBerry owners, but it isn’t so great for people with other phones.RIM says it is planning to add built-in cellular data, email, contacts, calendar and the other missing core features to the PlayBook this summer, via software updates. But until then, I can’t recommend the PlayBook over a fully standalone tablet, except possibly for folks whose BlackBerrys never leave their sides.”Engadget’s Tim Stevens: “Writing this review has been a lot like trying to hit a moving target thanks to a series of software updates that have been dropping every few days. The PlayBook of today is considerably better than the PlayBook of yesterday, which also was a big step forward from the one we were reviewing two days before that. This is both encouraging and worrying — encouraging that RIM is actively working to improve things, but worrying that things as critical as memory management are still being tweaked at the eleventh hour. This means we’re not entirely sure what the PlayBook that goes on sale next week will look like.” The New York Times’ David Pogue: “For now, the PlayBook’s motto might be, “There’s no app for that.”No existing apps run on this all-new operating system, not even BlackBerry phone apps. (R.I.M. says an emulator that will run BlackBerry apps will come later this year.)So the company has decided to start from scratch with an all-new app store for the PlayBook. The company says that it has 3,000 submissions already, in part because it offered a free PlayBook to anyone who’d write an app. But they won’t be revealed until next week. (Reviewers were shown only a skeletal store with a few dozen lame apps in it.)”Wired’s Mike Isaac: “The bottom line: It’s a well-constructed device with great media-viewing capabilities, solid hardware specs and a price on par with the current tablet market. But with serious gaps in key areas like app selection and Flash stability, you may want to think twice before picking one up.”That’s What Critics Say. What About Enterprise Customers?In addition to the repeated complaints about the lack of apps, another strand repeats in many of these reviews: this may well be a solid tablet for the enterprise. Indeed, BlackBerry still retains its cachet among enterprise users, and as the tablet seems to only obtain full functionality when used alongside the BlackBerry phone (for now, at least), then it may face less of a difficult sell there.While many of these early reviews frown on the tablet and its possible many consumers will as well, RIM’s new tablet may meet the needs of the enterprise. And if 2011 is the year of the tablet, then enterprise users may well find this tablet suits their needs.

Business Loan? Budding Entrepreneurs Raise Their Chances

first_imgRelated Posts Emma Salvador Trends Driving the Loyalty Marketing Industry Emma Salvador, a masters in computer science has a knack for computer technologies. She has over 15 years of experience in systems security and IoT. Reasons to Outsource General Counsel Services f… How OKR’s Completely Transformed Our Culture Business credit is the grease that keeps the wheels of a business enterprise moving. The fact that business enterprises rely on business loans from time to time is an obvious statement. Regardless of the scale or the diversity of a business — budding entrepreneurs running from pillar to post in search of seed capital or liquidity injection for their business enterprises are a common sight in business circles.Challenges in Getting a Business Loan ApprovedWhile getting a business loan application approved by a banker, angel investor, or a private equity (PE) fund has always been a tall order. It has become even more complicated in the last two decades in the aftermath of global economic crises. There has been the subprime crisis (2008), the Eurozone crisis (2011) and the lessons learned from the cases of fiscal profligacy in the PIIGS (Portugal, Iceland, Italy, Greece, and Spain).Banks, private equity investors, angel investors, and lending institutions for business across the world have become even more cautious about approving loan applications due to a vast number of reasons.Some of the significant macroeconomic challenges that have an impact on the non-approval of business loan applications are as follows:Stringent guidelines by regulatory agencies and federal banksImpact of non-performing assets (NPAs) on balance sheets of banks due to bad business loansAbsence of a strong value proposition to be offered through the businessLack of a clear definition of the purpose of the business loanAbsence of well-documented history on the corporate behavior of the firmAbsence of demonstrated history of credit and payback by the firmA weak revenue model to support the payback of the creditLack of the scope to build scale into the business model for expansionHow to Raise the Chances of Getting the Business Loan Application ApprovedDefine the Purpose of the Business Credit First, define the core purpose of seeking business credit. It is of paramount importance that you, as an entrepreneur, be clear about the goals that you aim to achieve through the business credit that you are seeking.Do you want a working capital injection for your business to pay off salaries and wages?Do you want a loan to pay off existing debt?Do you want a business credit to expand your business?Do you want a line of credit to reach out to new geographiesDo you want to diversify your businessDo you want to embark on a capacity expansion through the establishment of new production units?Be very clear about the source of your journey and where do you want to end up?Decide on the Capital Injection- Debt or EquitySecond, as an entrepreneur, explore the multiple modes of business credit that are in place these days.You do not always have to lean towards a bank to seek a capital injection for your business.There are other options of private equity (PE) fundsAngel investors who are also sometimes referred to as venture capitalists (VCs)Microfinance institutions (MFIs).You also have the option to explore capital injections through equity crowdfunding. Banks offer the traditional debt route, PEs and VCs offer an equity route. On the other hand equity crowdfunding is a mechanism that allows your business to lean on broad groups of investors that fund micro, small and medium enterprises in lieu of payback, profit or revenue sharing of sweat equity.Update your Tax RecordsThird, do not forget to be a socially responsible corporate citizen. At the grassroots level, this translates to compliance with regulation and governance norms as per the local laws. Tax compliance is one of the essential factors for micro, small, and medium businesses.Bankers, PEs, VCs, and even crowdfunding platforms pay a great deal of attention to the details of the tax burden on your business and are particularly keen to study your tax records.Check for outstanding tax burdens and liabilities and consider a clean tax statement to be a testimony to subsistence level checks before proceeding forward with further processing of your business loan application or liquidity injection that you are seeking.Assess the Financial Risk Factor ObjectivelyFourth, be sure of the financial risk that your business is capable of taking upon itself. Ask yourself where and how to draw the line? There is no substitute to sound financial risk management.How much of financial risk is considered to be conservative, and how should you recognize the red flags?Work on your financial risk modeling. Your risk modeling should ideally include the expected return on investment (RoI), the payback period of your business, and the net present value (NPV) of the assets of the firm.Further, work with an experienced financial risk analyst to assess the unforeseen risk factors that may delay the returns from your project.In short, as an entrepreneur, you should be aware of the farthest that you can stretch with the financial risk involved with the capital injection.Define the degree of affordable risk (DAR) to yourself first, and you should be in an excellent position to explain it to the bankers and creditors.3Cs Matter: Character, Capability, and CredibilityRemember, bank managers and creditors, watch out for three things here:Character–The character here may refer to the value creation potential of the business seeking a capital injection.Capability–Capability here refers to the projected risk-returns trade-off faced by the business.Credibility– credibility refers to a combination of things, including brand value, the market capitalization of the firm, or the total valuation of the assets in possession of the firm.Safeguard Your Intellectual Property RightsOne last thing before you pitch your application before a banker, PE firm, or angel investor. Your intellectual property rights are especially applicable to product based and concept selling businesses. If you are into a company that uses technology, data, or digital assets in any way.It makes enormous good sense to think of your core competence and operational risks in terms of the VRIO model.VRIO here refers to:value (V)rareness (R)non-imitability (I)organizational fit (O).When you safeguard your intellectual property rights like trademarks, copyrights, and patents you have a very potent weapon to beat the competition in the market and create a solid basis for product differentiation and thus, a unique selling point for customers to lean on.Having a unique selling point transforms the very nature of your business loan application. It gives you a legal safeguard, a USP to talk about and finally a perfect core competence to draw the attention of PEs and VCs and win their trust.ConclusionWhile this is a list of general guidelines for entrepreneurs seeking a capital injection for their business, more layers and sub-layers of analysis may be added to make your business loan application even better and precise.One parting shot for entrepreneurs here is to focus not just on justifying why their business deserves a loan or an equity investment but to focus on how a small capital injection can multiply the value creation many times more and benefit investors, clients and employees through a profitable, predictable, sustainable and de-risked business model.
