MOST READ “Even the players now that we played exceptionally well. Of course, I hope we can repeat that but I think we should expect the worst,” Guiao said. “We should also expect that they’ve already made their adjustment, seeing what they saw in the Asian Games.”“This is a different level in the qualifiers. We both want to make the World Cup and I think we need to prepare even harder against them this time because we don’t really know who are going to be the additions to their team,” veteran big man Beau Belga said.In the Asian Games, Guiao steered a team that had players he’s very familiar with which made it easier for him to run his system fluidly.The latest version of Gilas is made up of an entirely different core with Philippine basketball’s cream of the crop suiting up in the fifth window of the Fiba World Cup Asian qualifiers.“Our advantage actually is we have a different lineup so they might not really know the likes of June Mar (Fajardo), Greg (Slaughter) or Marcio (Lassiter), Arwind (Santos) and that could be our advantage against them,” said Guiao, who steered a Philippine team that had a core of Rain or Shine players to a fifth-place finish in the Asiad.ADVERTISEMENT Tim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crown Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

DD HEALTH WATCH: TAKE CARE OF THE WINDOWS TO YOUR SOUL – EYE CARE

first_imgDD HEALTH WATCH: EYE CARE: A regular eye exam should be part of your regular health checkup routine and it is advised to have one at least every two years.The Association of Optometrists Ireland (AOI) estimates that about 80 per cent of adults are entitled to a free two-yearly eye exam under their medical card or PRSI contributions.There are two eye-care schemes which are paid by the State: For Medical Card HoldersFor qualified PRSI contributorsSays the AOI: “People who hold a valid full medical card (not a GP visit card) and those with a Health Amendment Act Card are entitled to an eye examination once every two years, or more often if there is a clinical reason requiring this.”There was also an allowance towards the cost of spectacles that was designed to cover the cost of the most basic spectacles. However The Minister for Social Protection suspended payment of these allowances towards spectacles since the 2008 budget. They have not been abolished, but they have been suspended until further notice.Our eyes gradually change, especially as we age, so dramatic changes aren’t what we need to look for, instead gradual incremental changes are key. This is why it’s so important to have regular eye exams and take positive steps to protect your eyesight.Looking After Your EyesMore than half of all sight loss is avoidable when detected early and a regular eye test can identify early indications of eye diseases such as cataract, glaucoma, diabetes and Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD).If you are a contact lens wearer, regular after-care appointments are very important and will pick up any problems at an early stage.The following are other steps you can take to ensure you are taking better care your eyes: Diet – Eat the right foodsStudies show that what we eat can affect our vision. Certain foods are particularly high in antioxidants which can help to prevent retinal damage and certain eye conditions like cataracts and age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD). An anti-oxidant which hugely beneficial is lutein, found in many fruit and vegetables.Foods recommended for eye health include:Broad leaf greens such as kale and spinachBrightly coloured fruit and veg such as corn, carrots, orange sweet peppers and orangesOily fish like salmon, tuna and mackerelBroccoliEggsLook at your lifestyle habits:ExerciseLack of exercise contributes significantly to several eye conditions, particularly amongst people aged 60 and over.AlcoholExcessive alcohol consumption can lead to serious health conditions which can have a detrimental effect on your eye healthSmokingAfter ageing, smoking is the biggest risk factor for developing macular degeneration. Smoking also increases your risk of developing cataract. Know your family eye health historyCertain eye conditions can be hereditary, such as Glaucoma. When detected early, it can be treated and controlled and therefore it would be very beneficial to know if this condition has been in your family history so you can be tested.Take care in the sunWearing sunglasses reduces the risks of damaging your eyes as a result of the strong ultra violet light from the sun’s rays. Check your glasses have a UV factor and carry the CE mark which indicates they meet the European safety standards.DiabeticsPeople who have diabetes are at risk of developing a condition called diabetic retinopathy and should ensure they have regular eye tests to enable early detection and treatment.Computer screen breaksIt is very important to take frequent breaks from your computer screen, at least once an hour to allow your eyes to rest. This will help to avoid problems such as eye strain, lack of focus, and headaches. If you have long documents to read, print them off and use to work alongside your computer.MascaraA mascara tube is one of the cosmetic products that is most susceptible to bacterial infection – the warm, dark, moist environment is the perfect environment for bacteria to flourish. Sharing increases the risk of cross-contamination, so avoid if you want to keep your eyes healthy.DD HEALTH WATCH: TAKE CARE OF THE WINDOWS TO YOUR SOUL – EYE CARE was last modified: April 26th, 2016 by John2Share 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)Tags:Donegal Daily Health Watcheye carehow to look after your eyeslast_img read more

Fit-again Groves eyes Wembley fight

first_imgGeorge Groves plans to fight at Wembley Arena on 14 September – seven weeks after the Hammersmith man’s clash with Francisco Sierra in California.The undefeated British and Commonwealth super-middleweight champion will fly out to the United States next week for his first outing since a second-round demolition of Paul Smith last November.This year Groves, 24, has had to withdraw from a defence of his titles against Kenny Anderson and a world title challenge against WBO champion Robert Steiglitz because of a back and nose injury respectively.The intention is for him to dispatch Sierra and then top the bill at Wembley – probably against Anderson, although his opponent has yet to be confirmed.A rematch with Anderson has been eagerly anticipated since he floored Groves before the Londoner battled back to stop him in a thrilling encounter in 2010.“It’s been a frustrating year for me. I’ve had a few injuries and obviously haven’t been as active as I wanted to be,” said Groves.“I’m concentrating fully on my fight next weekend. It’s always a challenge, boxing abroad. I’ll be in with a good guy – he’s a very good fighter, Sierra, with a very good record, so I can’t look past him.“But it’s good to know that when I do beat him, I’ve got a nice big show in London to come back to.“Building a fan base in London has always been important for me. I’m looking forward to some exciting times ahead.”Harrow Weald prospect Mitchell Smith, hugely impressive in his first two professional fights, will also be on the Wembley bill.Promoter Frank Warren says the show is part of his commitment to propelling Groves towards a world title shot – and to staging more boxing in London.“It’s a London card and I want to see big boxing back in town,” Warren declared.“We had a fantastic night with David Haye and it shows that the fans in London come out for the big shows.“We feel there’s a big audience there that’s been neglected for a while, probably because there have been big fights taking place in Manchester and Liverpool.“Wembley’s a fabulous boxing arena with a lot of history and is not far from where George lives.“The objective for me is to build up big fights headed by George. I’m determined to get behind George and really push him.“He’s had a little bit of bad luck with his injuries, but now he’s back in the game I’m going to throw the whole weight of my promotions behind him to get him that world title shot.”Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

Half-time: Crystal Palace 0 Chelsea 0

first_imgPremier League leaders Chelsea were frustrated in a goalless first half at relegation-threatened Crystal Palace.The first chance of the game fell to Fernando Torres from a long throw-in, but the Spain international’s snatched close-range volley was comfortably blocked by Scott Dan.Chelsea were next denied by the sliding intervention of Joel Ward, beating the outstretched figure of Andre Schurrle at the back post after Cesar Azpilicueta whipped in an inviting low ball after breaking clear on the counter-attack.Palace were driven forward by Jason Puncheon, who carved out the best opening of the first half, picking out the unmarked Yannick Bolasie, who could only fire into the side netting after failing to bring the ball down with his first touch as Petr Cech scrambled to cover his back post.It sparked a period of sustained Eagles pressure that included two penalty shouts that were turned down by referee Lee Mason after Gary Cahill first clattered into Cameron Jerome before then tangling with Bolasie.Chelsea: Cech, Ivanovic, Cahill, Terry, Azpilicueta, Luiz, Matic, Lampard, Schurrle, Hazard, Torres.

Durban captivates Dutch supporters

first_img21 June 2010Their outfits were bright, mesmerising and went perfectly with their sunny disposition … the Dutch fans invaded Durban on the weekend, both to support their team in a 2010 Fifa World Cup™ match and to soak up the the wonderful weather and atmosphere that the city has to offer.Durban Mayor Obed Mlaba on Saturday welcomed over 1 000 Dutch fans who had gathered to have a party before watching their team beat Japan at the Moses Mabhida Stadium in a group E clash.Great city, wonderful weatherRotterdam resident Kin Sneijder said: “Durban is a great city. The weather is wonderful, there is good beer, and the girls are very pretty.”Should the Dutch side make the knock-out stages of the tournament, they could play in Durban, and this would make their fans quite happy – the warm weather being the cherry on top.Mary Knopp watched her team sail to victory at the Fifa Fan Park and enjoyed the atmosphere. “It’s so wonderful; no one here gets violent about the soccer like back home. I am having such a great time, just dancing and singing,” said Knopp.The young Almere student is in South Africa to do volunteer work in Amanzimtoti at Operation Bobbi Bear, an organisation which deals with children and women abuse issues.Knopp, after falling in love with South Africa, has also become an avid Bafana Bafana fan. “This is my first day at the Fan centre. I will be back to support Bafana Bafana,” she said.Like most women, Knopp is impressed with the looks department of the Dutch team. In fact she is happier talking about Rafael van der Vaart than predicting where Holland will finish off in the tournament.Having ‘a ball’Veerle Leiden, who is also in the country to volunteer her services, is in awe of the beauty the province offers, and has been having a ball since the World Cup started.“The people, nature … everything here is so beautiful. I am glad the World Cup is here. It is doing a lot of good to unite and bring the country together,” said Leiden.Leiden is confident that her team will go quite far in this competition because they “have a strong team filled with talent”.The Netherlands became the first team to book their place in the Round of 16 after their 1-nil victory over Japan and Denmark’s defeat of Cameroon on Saturday.Source: BuaNewslast_img read more

Viral video series explores coloured identity and plight of indigenous people

first_imgA new online series by two Cape Town filmmakers is tackling the complexities of the modern coloured experience and creating awareness of South Africa’s indigenous people.Filmmakers Kelly Eve Koopman and Sarah Summers explore the history and heritage of coloured people in South Africa in their Facebook web series Coloured Mentality. (Image: Facebook)CD AndersonA Facebook video series called Coloured Mentality explores coloured identity in modern South Africa. Tackling the often painful history and rich heritage of coloured people with honesty and humour, the series is proving to be a viral hit with South Africans.Created by filmmakers Kelly Eve Koopman and Sarah Summers, the series carries interviews with well-known South Africans, including actress Denise Newman and musician Jitsvinger, about what it means to them to be coloured in modern South Africa.Explaining the purpose of using celebrities to highlight these issues, Summers told IOL/Cape Argus that “our ideas of getting those figures was that they are well known and have an influence to engage in this conversation. A lot of the people that we’ve interviewed are people that are basically representing the coloured identity.”The first episode, posted on 22 January, has had more than 40,000 views and almost 2,500 shares on the social network. The series consists of six short episodes that include interviews and analysis by Koopman and Summers.Coloured or black?The idea for the series came from the fact that, as Koopman says, conversations about coloured identity could sometimes be “awkward and uncomfortable”.Often the most contentious aspect of any discussion about coloured identity is whether people identify more as coloured, with all the history and tradition behind the term, or as black in a way to connect politically with the rest of the country. “There are so many people who identify as (coloured) regardless of what the history is,” Summers told Cape Talk Radio, adding that the term could be seen as a more community-based one than some kind of legal ethnic classification.Koopman reiterated this in the same interview, saying: “I grew up with parents very involved in the struggle. I grew up with black consciousness, but there is a part of me culturally that’s undeniable coloured. For me it’s a very strong cultural and personal identity but I can identify as politically black.”Walking the Cape with the KhoisanMost obviously, the coloured identity is still strongly linked to the heritage of the indigenous Khoisan people, whose own identity is often lost in the modern multi-diversity of South Africa. This is something Summers and Koopman want to explore further, beyond the realms of their web series.The two are joining a group of Khoisan activists in an effort to highlight the Khoisan identity and raise awareness of the important heritage of South Africa’s indigenous people. The group is planning a 1,000km walk through historically significant points in the Western Cape and Eastern Cape, from Fort Beaufort into the heart of Cape Town.The walk begins on 18 February and will be the main focus of the next instalments of the Coloured Mentality series.“When we started filming the documentary we realised that in all the conversations we were having there were so many areas that needed critical interrogation and conversation, where people were looking for a platform to discuss because there were so many facets to this,” Summers told IOL/Cape Argus.For more information about Coloured Mentality and the awareness walk, visit the Coloured Mentality Facebook page.Source: IOL/Cape Argus, Cape Talk Radio, Coloured Mentality Facebook page Would you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

What The New Kindle Means To Amazon

first_imgMassive Non-Desk Workforce is an Opportunity fo… On Thursday, Amazon announced another family of branded shopping carts in which consumers can pile a wealth of digital goods. Sure, they may look like a Kindle e-reader, or the new Kindle Fire tablets – but make no mistake about the goals Amazon has for the new devices.Company executives pitched the new Kindles as the perfect devices on which to consume e-books and magazines, and the Fire as a showcase for movies, music, the Web and Android apps. So forget the hardware, their purpose is clear – to provide a dedicated sales channel for Amazon’s digital storefront. (To get up close and personal with Amazon’s new devices,  see A Close-Up Look At Amazon’s New Kindles.)Michael Gartenberg, an analyst for Gartner, summed up in a tweet what he told ReadWriteWeb earlier in the week: “Amazon’s proposition: sell devices that connect to an end-to-end set of services.”In fact, that’s exactly what Amazon chief executive Jeff Bezos dubbed the Fire at its launch event in Santa Monica, Calif. People don’t want gadgets any more; they want services, and the Kindle Fire is a service, Bezos said. It even greets you by name.Hardware Features Are In Fact ServicesThe range of Kindle hardware Amazon launched Thursday wasn’t spectacular; a new “Paperwhite,” high-contrast Kindle tablet for $119, plus a $179 3G option. Amazon also upgraded the Kindle Fire tablet and added an interesting new HD model that starts at just $299 with an 8.9-inch screen.But the real innovations were in features and pricing: X-Ray, a tool to connect customers to the movies they want to see, via the IMDB database that Amazon acquired, and a new in-game advertising service that can deliver physical as well as virtual items to the customer, using Amazon’s one-click method. And there’s no contract or annual fee to use the inexpensive but limited wireless broadband services attached to the Kindle. The 250MB per month limit is plenty for downloading books from Amazon, but nowhere near enough for worry-free Web browsing or streaming music or video. Amazon wants you to be able to buy for free, fast and on the go – but that’s about it. Virtually every feature was designed to facilitate shopping at Amazon’s store.“The Kindle and particularly the Kindle Fire have served as hardware devices designed to showcase Amazon’s digital ecosystem and services,” Gartenberg told ReadWriteWeb. “In a world driven by ecosystems more and platforms less, that’s an important set of devices for them to have on the market.”“This wasn’t an announcement from Amazon, it was more like a declaration of war,” Gartenberg added via Twitter.Amazon did not announce a smartphone, as some had expected.What Kindle Means To AmazonAmazon’s goal is to lure new shoppers, and once inside, keep them. It’s a walled-garden approach that has been tried by companies ranging from Apple all the way back to the early days of AOL’s dial-up service.But it’s been unusually effective for the company: In the U.S. alone, 86% of consumers who said that they’ve ever bought something on a Web marketplace also said that they have shopped with Amazon at some point, Forrester Research found. The percentage of Amazon’s e-commerce revenues as a total of the total amount spent online by U.S. shoppers has increased from 9% in 2001 to 19% in 2011.As Bezos explained at the announcement, “We want to make money when our customers use our devices, not when they buy our devices.”Apple has also been successful with the walled-garden approach, with its curated iOS Apps Store and its music and movie sales via iTunes. Avi Greengart, an analyst with Current Analysis, noted that Apple’s strengths are in apps, its user interface and its momentum. Amazon just provides cheaper content.Kindle Moves Beyond The Experimental Stage“My hunch is that it started as an experiment,” said Sucharita Mulpuru, a retail analyst with Forrester, of the Kindle family. “There have been other readers before, and it probably started at some level as a way to reduce their friction online. Since then, it has morphed into something else, because of all the fights with publishers.”When Amazon began selling digital versions of books, it originally underpriced them as a way to gain market share. The publishers themselves were outraged, but they were also handicapped; Amazon was also one of their largest customers, after all.And the role of the e-book has only continued to increase; according to a July report by BookStats (co-produced by the Association of American Publishers) revenue from ebooks more than doubled from 2010 to 2011. More significantly, e-books are now the dominant format in terms of net revenue – surpassing print – for the category of adult fiction, the first time that has ever occurred.“I don’t think Amazon expected that to happen – they had never seen something like that happen before, in the print space,” Mulpuru said of the outrage that met its e-book pricing decision. “I think that the company then went back, because they’re incredibly arrogant, and said, ‘We can win! How can we win by making this a complete vertical play, and getting into publishing ourselves?’”Amazon then hired Laurence J. Kirshbaum, who formerly ran the Time Warner Book Group, to head its own digital imprint.But at its heart, Amazon’s business is e-commerce – not just books, but also electronics, garden tools, food, even medical supplies and construction equipment. “Everything has to support that business in some way,” Mulpuru said.“The Biggest Threat To Retailers Since Wal-Mart”What that means is that Amazon is willing to make the Kindle and the Kindle Fire a loss leader to lure shoppers inside its virtual store.That strategy hasn’t escaped the notice of giant retailers like Target, which has booted the Kindle from its own store shelves. Mulpuru suspects Amazon may launch kiosks or small physical stores in airports and other hubs, precisely to convince flyers to pick up a Kindle and download a book before their flight.“I think [Amazon] is the biggest threat to retail since Wal-mart, and it’s one of the most disruptive forces in every industry that it touches, from consumer electronics to fulfillment and logistics, to commerce and retail,” Mulpuru said.“It’s baffling,” Mulpuru added. “It almost begs the question, if  [Amazon has] all these profitable businesses, at some point why don’t they just get rid of [their] physical retail business and just have all these profitable businesses? But I think this is just where the megalomania, the crazy vision of Jeff Bezos comes in. I think this is his libertarian values, his crazy attitude; he just wants to stick it to everybody. He just wants to shake it up in a completely radical way, and prove that it can be done.” IT + Project Management: A Love Affair Cognitive Automation is the Immediate Future of… markhachmancenter_img Tags:#Amazon#enterprise 3 Areas of Your Business that Need Tech Now Related Posts last_img read more
