first_img The Foxes host Chelsea on Monday having been knocked off the Barclays Premier League summit by Manchester City. The managers have had a rocky relationship in the past and clashed while Ranieri was at Roma and Mourinho was Inter Milan boss in 2010. Leicester boss Claudio Ranieri has revealed his sympathy for Jose Mourinho as he plots to regain top spot. Press Associationcenter_img But with the Chelsea chief under pressure following a poor season – which has seen them lose four of their last six league games to sit 17 points behind Leicester – Ranieri feels for his rival. He said: “Sympathy? Yes, but I have a good relationship with all the managers. For me doing this job is a fantastic life, it is good. “My relationship with Jose is all like other managers. Jose can have a wine (after the game) if he wants. I have a very good Italian wine.” Leicester are unbeaten in eight games but Manchester City’s last-gasp 2-1 win over Swansea on Saturday saw them move ahead at the top on goal difference. But Ranieri believes the Foxes’ focus will be key as he invoked inspiration from writer Rudyard Kipling. “In my job I tried to impose my philosophy, my atmosphere,” he said. “I know when we win it is easier. Everybody is well when everything goes in the right way but I am an experienced manager and I know the right thing is balance – not too high when you are top and not too down when you are down. It is balance. “I remember a Kipling poem If – it is fantastic. Victory and defeat are the same things. Maybe I will give it to my players.” The Foxes have stunned the top flight after beating relegation last season under former boss Nigel Pearson but Ranieri knows they still need to prove they can maintain their form. He added: “We have to go for another 10 matches to continue to stay not top but around the top. I am very proud, my players are playing well and a lot of fans look on us as a team who play well.” last_img read more

first_imgUganda looks good to secure third place, to qualify to play for 5th place overall in the classification round, if they overcome Scotland, ranked 9th in the world at 9.00am. They could as well secure a semifinal place.With group leaders England and New Zealand facing off Wednesday, Uganda’s She Cranes could see themselves level at second place if they beat Scotland in their final match and the Silver Ferns lose. They will storm the semifinals if they can beat Scotland by a 30 plus goal margin, and New Zealand lose.Uganda will have the advantage of playing after the New Zealand – England game, and will know the target they need — if the Silver Ferns lose. The team will also hope Proscovia is fully fit for this key game, as she had an ice-pack applied to reduce pain in her muscles at halftime before she could continue playing.Uganda-Wales Quarter scores:8-19 (8-19);12-20 (20-39);10-19 (30-58);10-18 (40-76)Starting Line UpsWales – (GK) K.Morgan, (GD) N.Jones, (WD) S.Drane, (C) K.Jones, (WA) S.Llewelyn, (GA) C.Moseley, (GS) C.LewisUganda – (GK) S.Nanfuka, (GD) A.Lilian, (WD) F.Nanyonga, (C) R.Meme, (WA) H.Nakachwa, (GA) R.Nanyonga, (GS) P.ProscoviaThe teams ranked third to sixth in each pool at the completion of the preliminary rounds will compete in the classification rounds as follows:3rd Pool A v 3rd Pool B4th Pool A v 4th Pool B5th Pool A v 5th Pool B6th Pool A v 6th Pool BThe classification rounds will determineplacings 5 –12 in the competition.Share on: WhatsApp PosPldWDLGFGAGDPtsQualification 2 New Zealand4301247181+666 3 Uganda4202230211+194Classification matches Wales must now dig for every inch of team spirit and fortitude ahead of their final match of Pool B, against Malawi tomorrow. 5 Scotland4103158232−742center_img 4 Malawi4202209231−224 6 Wales4004162282−1200 1 England4400288157+1318Semi-finals FILE PHOTO: Uganda She Cranes added another victory to their win. Their first win was against MalawiUganda ?? 76 Wales ??????? 40Wales remain winless after a frustrating match against UgandaGold Coast, Australia | THE INDEPENDENT & WELSHNETBALL.COM | Peace Proscovia continued her shooting masterclass at the Commonwealth Games, scoring 56 goals as Uganda’s netballers mauled Wales 76-40 in their penultimate group game.Sitting bottom of Pool B at the 2018 Commonwealth Games, Wales (World rank 10) had it all to do against Uganda (rank 7), who despite some very creditable performances had just one win against Malawi to their name thus far in the tournament.Uganda’s 36-goal margin win Tuesday now gives them an outside chance of making it to the semifinals.Wales made some good early opportunities for themselves but failed to convert, nevertheless it was a far more settled start than in their previous three Commonwealth Games assignments. However, a lack of composure in their opponents’ end led to some unforced turnovers and Uganda raced to a first quarter 19-8 lead.In all, the She Cranes demonstrated far more accuracy and dynamism in what proved to be a disappointing period for Wales.Despite having an ice-pack applied during the interval, Proscovia continued her shooting masterclass immediately upon the resumption of the match.Leila Thomas and Amanda Varey came on as Wales sought to find consistency and challenge the Ugandan lead. However, the required consistency never materialised as the Ugandan lead continued to grow apace.Wales performed better during the first five minutes of the third quarter, but Uganda couldn’t be caught. Wales brought on Georgia Rowe and moved Chelsea Lewis to goal attack in their search for more goals, but Uganda continued to find acres of space on court.The misery continued for Wales with Nia Jones receiving a warning from officials and the penalty count passing the 60-mark during the fourth period. Wales had only made 42 feeds into the circle by this point and it was creditable that Wales had converted 35 of these. However, generally it was difficult to find positives in what was a disappointing performance.Pool Blast_img read more

first_imgIt was his belief that success is possible that led to David’s various charitable endeavors in Red Bank.  After selling TAS to Bowthorpe PLC, he began to apply the scientific method to the problem of education in Red Bank and developed a new hypothesis: “If all segments of the Red Bank community work together to devise and execute a plan to address the academic, social, and cultural needs of Red Bank children, academic results will improve.”Tarver reached out to parents, teachers, community members, social service agencies and school administrators in an effort to build the connections necessary to improve the school system.In September of 2001, Tarver and the group he called the Red Bank Education and Development Initiative held the first meeting in the organization’s history at the Molly Pitcher Inn.By 2004, the RBEDI had helped to increase the percentage of students who passed the New Jersey eighth grade performance assessment from twenty five to sixty percent.The improvements that came about in Red Bank were due to the efforts of a number of dedicated educators and community members, Tarver stressed..“ I take credit for bringing the community together and for being a catalyst,” Tarver says. “(But) the credit for academic improvement should go to the administrators, teachers, parents, and above all, students, who achieved the results.” While he still visits Red Bank,Tarver returned to his home state of Michigan a few years ago.In a recent interview in Red Bank, Tarver discussed some of the struggles facing children in Red Bank. Speaking of his early days of involvement with the local YMCA, he noted that there were few African American children enrolled in classes and activities at the Y.Tarver, who says he grew up in the “Golden Age of Flint,” with many activities and opportunities available to him, said he wanted to ensure that African American children in Red Bank have access to programs and activities that he enjoyed despite any challenging circumstances they may experience.“It’s not easy when you have a kid who doesn’t have support.”When asked for further insight into how Red Bank can help to continue the work that he began with the RBEDI, he noted that “one of the things parents need is a way to know what to do to support their kids. The people who are a support system for a kid need a support system.”Tarver, who seems to always be on the lookout for an innovative solution, related a story about visiting Healdsburg, Ca. during a week in which local restaurants participated in a charity drive for schools, giving some of their proceeds back to the community.It is this kind of initiative, Tarver believes, that Red Bank needs in order to help children achieve success.And students, he said, can form their own hypothesis and discover where it leads – for example, “If you take a course, show up, behave, do your work, and be curious, what results can you achieve?”The memoir, Proving Ground will be published in June and available at local bookstores and on the web.A special, hardcover edition of the book may be ordered now from www.provinggroundbook.com and will ship in April. David TarverBy Frank AlvarezRED BANK – The name ‘David Tarver’ is a familiar one in Red Bank.From his involvement with the Red Bank Education and Development Initiative (RBEDI), to his service as president of the Count Basie Learning Center Board of Trustees, Tarver has been  a strong advocate for improving the public education system and increasing opportunities for Red Bank children to succeed.His commitment to that cause was built upon the success that Tarver himself achieved with decades of hard work and determination. Before becoming involved in his community,Tarver spent twelve years developing Telecom Analysis Systems (TAS), a company that he and his co-founders eventually sold for millions of dollars.That achievement gave Tarver time – time he chose to invest in his community and to look back on the many roads he has traveled.In his new book, Proving Ground, Tarver relates the story of his success.A keenly inspiring read, Proving Ground starts the reader in Flint, Michigan, where a young David Tarver is losing annual science fairs.  It wasn’t until he took a judge’s advice to heart and applied the scientific method to his projects that Tarver began to succeed.The cover of Tarver’s memoir, Proving GroundWhat he learned in Flint became the foundation for his professional life, and he uses that experience to illustrate how the kid from Flint made himself into an international businessman.The scientific method also played a role in his decision to go into business for himself.The initial hypothesis was based on his belief that it was “possible for three young black men to create and run a successful high-tech company,” Tarver said.Tarver had a clear view of his aims, and Proving Ground tracks the struggles and successes he experienced right up to the moment when he was able to confirm his hypothesis.center_img With an education in electrical engineering, David moved to New Jersey to work for Bell Laboratories in 1976, at a time when it was at the pinnacle of technological development.It was there that he began to develop the ideas that would lead to the creation of Telecom Analysis Systems. For twelve years, Tarver and TAS co-founders Charles Simmons and Steve Moore, built TAS up, transforming it from a small operation headquartered in Tarver’s basement into a multi-million dollar company.Tarver’s tone is casual and endearing as he walks the reader through the risks associated with leaving one’s job to pursue a long-held dream, but the details of the story are striking.  A truly self-made man, David Tarver’s story shows exactly what it takes to achieve success.last_img read more

first_imgThe much-anticipated expansion of the Maharashtra Cabinet will take place on Sunday with 12 cabinet and ministers of state likely to be sworn in. While confirming this Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis added a word of caution and said a final meeting was pending with Shiv Sena to formalise last- minute names. “Cabinet expansion will take place tomorrow (Sunday). We have had one round of meeting with the allies on Friday and a final meeting will take place today,” he said after meeting Union Ministers at New Delhi on Saturday. This was later confirmed by the Governor, who will host the swearing-in ceremony at 11 a.m.According to sources BJP ministers likely to be sworn in include former Congress leader Radhakrishna Vikhe-Patil; Parinay Fuke, MLA from Bhandara-Gondia; Atul Moreshwar Save, MLA from Aurangabad east; Mumbai BJP chief Ashish Shelar; former cabinet minister Jaydutt Kshirsagar; Vidarbha legislators Dr. Sanjay Kute and Dr. Anil Bonde; Sanjay Vishwanath Bhegade, MLA from Maval; and, Sangli MLA Suresh Dagadu Khade. Avinash Mahtekar (RPI) is also in contention. Government source told The Hindu that Shiv Sena is likely to get one cabinet and one MoS post with MLA from Yavatmal, Tanaji Sawant, being one of the two to be inducted. With Assembly elections due by October, the expansion will give the government much-needed impetus, leaders said. Party sources said the BJP names were cleared at a meeting of the Haryana, Jharkhand and Maharashtra core group chaired by party president Amit Shah on June 9 in New Delhi. Mr. Fadnavis held meetings with Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray to finalise the alliance candidates, and handed over a list to Governor Ch. Vidyasagar Rao on Friday.last_img read more
