Upbeat Timbe wants more work from Tusker

first_img0Shares0000Tusker FC Head Coach Sam Timbe.NAIROBI, Kenya, Mar 1- Tusker FC boss Sam Timbe is impressed by the improvement his side has recorded since their first Kenyan Premier League match of the season and remains optimistic they will perform better than they did last season.However, he has asked his charges to increase their input both on the training ground and on match days as they look to firm up and challenge for a respectable finish this season. The Ugandan tactician was forced to build up an almost entirely new team after inheriting a shell of a squad at Ruaraka, most first team players having left at the close of last season“With a well built side you come and polish from where you find but here I have had to start with new players. For them, they don’t understand my philosophy and they have to be trained into that philosophy,” Timbe told Capital Sport.Tusker FC defender Eugene Asike heads the ball away under pressure from Gor Mahia’s Eliud Loukwam during a Kenyan Premier League match at the Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos on February 28, 2018. PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluHe adds; “At times it takes long and also at times depends on the quality of the players you have. But I am happy they are picking up and showing some good football. If they get to my philosophy well, we will be okay.”Four games on, the team has amassed five points from one win and two draws having lost their opening tie away to Chemelil Sugar.Timbe talked at length of imprinting his philosophy of building play from the back whish he says the team is yet to fully grasp, but remains optimistic with more training they will be able to play perfectly well.Tusker FC team photo/Photo/TIMOTHY OLOBUUHe was disappointed in part with the tactical implementation against Gor Mahia on Wednesday, a match that ended 0-0 in Machakos but he was contend with the single point picked.“There are times we should have built up play well, but I am happy with what we got. I have added a point; it is a marathon and a step is better than nothing. We will find a way to sharpen to be in a better position,” the coach noted.The brewers switch their attention to Ulinzi Stars who they face on Sunday at the Afraha Stadium in Nakuru with Timbe looking for an improved performance from his charges.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

first_imgTHREE men who caused “enormous damage to the Protestant community” in east Donegal were given lengthy suspended prison sentences when they appeared before Letterkenny Circuit Court today.All three had pleaded guilty to burglary and arson offences at a previous hearing.Today’s court heard that on December 6th 2008, gardai responded to an incident a the Presbyterian Church Hall in St Johnston after reports of a fire. Almost €29,000 worth of damage was done to the hall in the attack.Before today’s court was Emmett O’Donnell, 23, of Ard Baithin, St Johnston, Kelan Clarke, 22, of Ard Baithin, St Johnston and Donal Gillespie, 21, of Old Road, St Johnston.The court heard the three had put chairs into the centre of church hall and set them alight. They had also emptied fire extinguishers during the incident.Barristers representing all three men confirmed to the court that they had each made contributions to the church of €4,000 in compensation, even though the fire was covered by insurance, as directed at a previous hearing by Circuit Court Judge John O’Hagan.“I recall this particular case very well. This particular hall was a pivotal centre for the Protestant community in this area and it was absolutely trashed,” said Judge O’Hagan.“These young men know this place very well and decided to trash it.”The Judge said the offences were particularly serious and he praised Rev Craig Wilson for “his magnanimous” decision to offer a hand of friendship to the accused so that they could “turn their lives around.”Each of the men was sentenced to three years imprisonment on each count – burglary and arson.The sentences were suspended for three years, with a €500 surety to keep the peace.AT HEARING.

Jaguars’ coach Doug Marrone waxes nostalgic on Al Davis

first_imgALAMEDA — Doug Marrone wasn’t sure what to expect when he went to see Al Davis.Marrone, head coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars, was head coach at Syracuse from 2009 through 2012 and had been a Raiders sixth-round draft pick in 1986. He knew Davis, with whom he had maintained a relationship, was in failing health.Davis immediately put Marrone on the defensive.“Even near the end he was very, very sharp,” Marrone told Bay Area reporters Wednesday by conference call. “He was sharp enough that …last_img read more

What is Really Green?

first_imgI recently read an incredible book, “The Omnivore’s Dilemma,” by Michael Pollan. He writes about the food industry—industrialized farming, huge cattle feedlots, how corn is a prevalent ingredient in almost everything we consume, and other delightful subjects. It is enough to make you stop eating altogether.One subject Pollan addresses is the idea of organic food. While its origins go back to J. I. Rodale’s magazine, “Organic Gardening and Farming,” first published in the 1940s, the organic movement began to take off in the 1970s, fueled by an idealistic generation looking for change. We have recently seen an incredible resurgence in interest in organic food, but, interestingly, much of the food labeled organic is now produced on enormous factory farms rather than by the independent, local farmers who we see displayed in the pastoral pictures on the walls of Whole Foods.This is not to say that organic food is not better than regular food, but the requirements for official organic certification are so costly that many farmers with small, natural, and sustainable operations cannot afford to have their products certified.That was a rather long way of getting to my point, which is, how are we to define “green” buildings? There is in the range of 100 different green-building programs in operation today. These are run by utilities, HBAs, cities, states, counties, nonprofit and for-profit organizations, and the U.S. government. They all have different, though similar, criteria, and varying levels of testing, from none to extensive, to certify a project as “green.”So where does that leave us? Like farmers with small, sustainable operations, there are likely contractors out there who are building green homes that meet or exceed the highest levels in the industry, but because they may not have the ability or money to certify through an official green-building program, they may not get the recognition they deserve.On the other hand, there are some programs that have a low entry level and require no independent verification of the work, thereby allowing homes to be labeled “green” that may not even meet the building and energy code, and certainly do not perform as well as other, unlabeled, homes.I don’t have an answer to this, although we may see one, or many, forthcoming in the next few years as green-building programs start the big shakeout and various governments start providing incentives and requirements for buildings to be built and remodeled green. Stay tuned—it will be a fun ride.last_img read more

UK Gurdwara Damaged in Suspected Arson Attack

first_imgThe Edinburgh Police in the United Kingdom arrested a man on Aug. 29 after a gurdwara was targeted in a suspected arson attack the day before in Leith city.Guru Nanak Gurdwara Sahib was targeted with a petrol bomb at 5.05 am on Aug. 28. Detectives believe that the Sikh temple was deliberately targeted, BBC reported. No one was injured but the building suffered damages during the attempt to set it on fire. The arson attack is being treated as a hate crime against the community, the report added.The gurdwara informed community members about the attack on its Facebook page, saying that someone tried to burn the front door of the building. It added that the place has suffered extensive smoke damage but the holy pictures were safe. It also told them that access to the gurdwara has been denied by the police until smoke clears.“Fortunately, the fire was extinguished relatively quickly and no one was injured, but nevertheless we are treating this incident with the utmost seriousness,” Police Scotland’s Detective Inspector Clark Martin, from Gayfield CID, was quoted as saying by BBC.Edinburgh Police had started investigations in this suspected hate crime attack in the Scottish capital. It arrested a 49-year-old man as part of the investigations.**UPDATE**A 49-year-old man has now been charged in connection with fires at the Sikh Temple in Sheriff Brae and Methodist Church in Junction Place, which took place in the early hours of Tuesday 28 August. He is due to appear at Edinburgh Sheriff Court on Thursday 30 August.— Edinburgh Police (@EdinburghPolice) August 29, 2018Humza Yousaf, the Scottish government’s Justice Secretary, said that he was “saddened at the news that a Sikh temple in Edinburgh was petrol-bombed,” the Independent reported. A spokesperson for Police Scotland said that the exact cause of the blaze was still unclear and was subject to investigation, it said, adding that he refused to confirm the use of a petrol bomb in the incident.“At this time we do not know if this has been a random and reckless act, or a targeted attack on the temple,” the publication quoted Inspector Andy Johnson of Leith police station as saying.The gurdwara, situated in a former church, is the only Sikh temple for the over 500-strong community in Edinburgh, the Independent reported.The gurdwara also cautioned people against any collection campaign for the restoration work. It informed them that the place is covered by insurance and will handle any repairs on its own.In a similar incident that took place on June 6 this year, a gurdwara and a mosque were set ablaze in Leeds, United Kingdom, in the wee hours. The police arrested a 42-year-old man during the investigation, treating them as hate crime incidents. The UK Home Office said in a statement in June that it will grant funds up to £56,000 per place of worship, including temples, mosques, gurdwaras and churches in England and Wales, to help protect them against hate crimes. It had said that the funding will cover the costs of security equipment like CCTV, perimeter fencing, access control gates, window locks, intruder alarm, external lighting and security doors, among others. But the cost of recruiting security personnel will not be covered. Related Itemshate crimescotlandSikhismlast_img read more
