It was my dream to coach in Kenya, says Tusker new boss Nsimbe

PHOTO/New Vision UgandaNAIROBI, Kenya, Dec 28- George ‘Best’ Nsimbe arrives in Nairobi on Wednesday evening, ready to start his two-year contract with Kenyan Premier League and GOtv Shield champions Tusker FC, a job he says was his dream having worked in his native Uganda and Tanzania.Nsimbe was appointed to take over the role left vacant by his countryman Paul Nkata who left to join Coastal side Bandari FC. “It was my dream to coach in Kenya because I have worked in Uganda and Tanzania and I always wanted to experience the Kenyan league which is one of the most competitive in the region. I am really pleased to get this opportunity and I can’t wait to start,” Nsimbe told Capital Sport.The tactician knows only too well the pressure of expectation that comes with the job especially after his predecessor Nkata led the brewers to a season double in 2016. Nsimbe though says he is ready for the task.“I know my brother Nkata did very well here winning two trophies. I don’t look at it as pressure as such but it is a challenge for us to defend both. It is a tough league, very competitive with good players and I am up to the challenge with the experience I have,” the former Azam FC tactician offered.Tusker skipper James Situma says the players are ready to work with the new coach and adds the fact he will be working with a Kenyan assistant, Francis Baraza will make their combination a success.“We welcome the new coach and look forward to work together and we will give him 100% support. Baraza coming in as an assistant is also something great because he has worked in Kenya for a while and most of us have worked with him in the national team so it will not be a problem blending in,” Situma said.Nsimbe’s targets, apart from successfully defending the two trophies will be to push the brewers to the group stages of the CAF Champions League.With CAF having increased the number of teams in the group stages to 16 from eight, Tusker have an easier route to the coveted groups if they win their preliminary and first round matches.They start their campaign at home to Mauritius side AS Port-Louis and if they win the two legged tie, they will book a date with Sudan’s Al Hilal. They will progress to the group stages if they beat the Sudanese champions.“It is possible and that (group stages) is one of my targets. I know that it has been a long time since a Kenyan side made it that far in continental football but we can make it,” Nsimbe said.Meanwhile, Tusker has given up the chase for Muhoroni Youth stopper Paul Muchika as he is tied on a long term contract with the sugar belt side.The side has also been beaten by Ugandan side Kampala City Council Authority (KCCA) to the signature of midfielder Saddam Juma and they will now be forced to look elsewhere.“We are talking to two West African players; an attacking midfielder and a striker. Hopefully by the end of the week we will have something concrete,” Tusker FC CEO Charles Obiny said.Nsimbe has also affirmed his biggest target is to land good players in the two positions, especially a striker who will compliment Allan Wanga.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

6 Best Practices for Key Control Success

first_imgSponsored by InstaKeyEvery facility uses some level of key control to ensure the utmost in safety for employees and asset security. Choosing a key control solution for your environment is only the first step. What happens after that determines how effective and costly your program will be. Implementing these top key control best practices can make or break your program (and your budget).In general industry terms, a key control program is a formally documented system of locks, keys, and who has those keys. But some retailers use more complex methodologies, such as InstaKey’s key control system, that are designed to exert control over locks, keys that have access to those locks, and who has access to those keys. Such systems can control the distribution of keys, protect against unauthorized duplication, and deliver visibility for management in a cloud-based platform.- Sponsor – Best Practices of an Effective Key Control ProgramBy following these recommendations, loss prevention organizations can create a comprehensive program that will maximize facility safety and security:1. Use restricted, uniquely marked keys, to eliminate the possibility of unauthorized and undocumented duplicates. Each key used in the facility should always be identifiable and easily tracked. If a traditional mechanical key system uses keys that can be duplicated, the entire system is jeopardized. Controlling how keys are made and who has them is essential to providing even modest security to a facility.2. Formally define when locks in the facility should be changed. This type of defined protocol can significantly reduce long-term costs. Consider only changing locks if a key is lost, stolen, or is not returned by a terminated employee. Of course, this is only recommended if you are practicing best practice #1. Otherwise, you should rekey each time an employee leaves.3. Develop an efficient way to change your locks. The time and effort needed when lock changes are deemed necessary can be significantly reduced with user-rekeyable locks. Traditional mechanical key systems that require locksmith labor to rekey or swap cores have some inherent deficiencies that don’t make them the best choice in maximizing efficiency and reducing costs for your facility because the need for a locksmith (or your staff’s time for program management)is generally expensive.And, the need for a locksmith rarely comes during normal business hours. If it is not cost effective to rekey a facility at appropriate times, you might elect to delay rekeying to a point in the future, when it might fit better within your budget. But this is another serious flaw with traditional mechanical locks. Rekeying is an integral part of maintaining security. To mitigate this possibility, you should choose a system that is not only secure, but will also be cost effective in the future.4. Embrace technology. The right technology can dramatically improve the efficiency and effectiveness of a key control program. A cloud-based records management systemshould be used to manage all key control data, and that data should be immediately accessible from any smart device. Such functionality would provide multiple users secured access to data from anywhere and be administered according to differing levels of authorization. This way, LP—along with various levels of management—can get the answers right when they are needed.5. Audit keys and keyholders regularly. Checking in on your key holders to ensure that your facility is in compliance and that keys are all accounted for is a great way to be proactive with your program. This can also help to keep the importance of your facility’s overall safety and security in focus for everyone. If a key is lost, stolen, or not returned by a key holder, you’ll need to refer to best practice #2 in this list.6. Implement ongoing, facility-wide training and education. A dedicated program administrator should oversee this training and establish set policies and procedures that are clear, concise, and readily available to all employees and staff.Through the sharing of this knowledge, you help key holders to regularly improve their personal accountability for their keys.Management and employees alike must know what protocols to follow amidst a crisis. By establishing a defined protocol for use during a crisis, you provide the needed safety and security to avoid panic, confusion, and misinformation in the moment. Instilling some basic measures is worth the continued safety and security of an entire organization.Mechanical key systems, when coupled with these key control best practices and effective underlying policies, can provide your facility the highest possible levels of security, protection, and peace of mind.

Dhoni has not told us anything about retirement: Kohli

first_imgIndian captain Virat Kohli   –  Reuters Published on COMMENT Dhoni is a legend of the game, says Kohli SHARE Indian Cricket Team What’s eating Dhoni baiters? SHARE SHARE EMAIL sport × RELATED COMMENTS July 10, 2019 Dhoni may quit after World Cup Indian captain Virat Kohli   –  Reuters World Cup 2019: India exit from World Cup after top order collapse against New Zealand For Dhoni, coming in to bat at 71 for 5, it was not easy to accelerate straightaway and it needed a rebuilding which he did alongside Ravindra Jadeja. India captain Virat Kohli Wednesday said MS Dhoni has not told him anything about his future plans amid speculation that the veteran may call it quits after the team’s semi-final exit from the World Cup. Dhoni scored 50 off 72 balls in India’s 18-run defeat at the hands of the Black Caps and the skipper once again came to the veteran’s defence on his slow approach during middle overs.Asked if Dhoni has said anything about his future plans, with the squad for the West Indies tour to be announced soon, Kohli said, “No he hasn’t told us anything as of now.” For Dhoni, coming in to bat at 71 for 5, it was not easy to accelerate straightaway and it needed a rebuilding which he did alongside Ravindra Jadeja. “Well, look, it’s always, you know, a safer option to look at it from outside and say, ‘Maybe this could have happened’ but I think today he was batting with Jadeja and there was only Bhuvi (Bhuvneshwar Kumar) to follow after. So he had to hold one end together in my opinion,” Kohli said.Virat’s take “Jadeja was playing so well and you needed a solid partnership and to get a 100-run partnership from that situation, I think it had to be the right balance of one guy holding an end (Dhoni) and Jadeja playing the way he did. His knock was outstanding,” the skipper explained the rationale behind Dhoni’s approach. The Indian captain said it’s only people out there in the middle, who know how to analyse situations. “When you don’t win, in hindsight, a lot of things can reflect in different manners but you have to understand how the game panned out and until what stage did the game go. “And you would obviously expect New Zealand to fight back at some stage because the target was steep after losing five or six wickets. But the way they (Dhoni and Jadeja) batted together, I think it was the perfect tempo for that situation, according to me,” Kohli said. Asked as to why Dhoni was sent at no 7, Kohli said the gameplan was to allow him to act as a damage controller if the need arises. “Well, he’s been given that role after the first few games of being in a situation where he can, if the situation is bad, he can control one end like he did today or if there is a scenario where there are six or seven overs left, he can go and strike,” Kohli said even though his answer lacked conviction. Mitchell Santner gave only seven runs in his first six overs, something that proved to be decisive in the end. Dhoni once again failed to rotate the strike against the left-arm spinner, which has been one of his weaknesses in the past three years. Asked, if he would have liked the batsmen to play differently, he curtly replied: “I wasn’t there out in the middle.” He then explained what he thought. “Again, it is very easy for me to say yes, we could have or no, it was fine. So, we leave the responsibility to the two guys in the middle to make decisions because eventually, as an individual, you play one ball at a time yourself and then you are talking with your partner,” Kohli said. His opposite number Kane Williamson felt that Dhoni’s run out was the turning point of the match. Asked whether he would have still persisted with Dhoni if he would have been India’s captain, Williamson cheekily enquired, “Is he changing his nationality?” last_img read more

Brothers look to leave lasting legacy on mat

Senior wrestler Lance Palmer is well on his way to his fourth All-American title. Palmer found success long before making his way to the Buckeye mat, though.  Palmer wrestled for St. Edward High School in Lakewood, Ohio, earning himself four consecutive state titles.  The fourth state title was “icing on the cake,” he said.  However, the state title was merely a warm-up for his 2006 Senior National Championship, his most coveted honor thus far.Palmer is looking past a fourth All-American title to reach his ultimate goal: becoming a National Champion.Working toward his goal has meant putting in more than 100 percent in practice. Keeping conditioning up is key to be able to go for seven minutes and not feel the fatigue halfway through, Palmer said.Practices account for conditioning and strength training, but Palmer said, “confidence level and mental attitude are just as important going into it.”     Palmer competes in the 149-pound weight class, arguably the toughest overall, wrestling the best of the best every time.  “It’s exciting and makes it fun to wrestle in such a competitive weight class,” he said.  Palmer is ranked No. 3 in the weight class, behind No. 1 Iowa’s Brent Metcalf and No. 2 Wisconsin’s Kyle Ruschell.    “The top three of us go at it back and forth every time we wrestle,” Palmer said. “It’s good being at the top and having other guys push you every time you wrestle.”Palmer has recorded 17 personal wins on the season. Two weeks ago, the Buckeyes traveled to Cedar Falls, Iowa, for the National Wrestling Coaches Association National Duals, where Palmer recorded a 5-0 decision.  Among the highlights of the weekend was a 1:13 second pin over Arizona State’s Vicente Varela, his fourth pin on the season.  That same day he defeated Cornell’s Hicks Manson 10-2 with four takedowns and one escape.  Palmer was only one of three Buckeyes to defeat No. 2 Iowa State.He wrapped up his undefeated weekend with a win over Minnesota’s Mario Mason.  After his impressive performance at the National Duels, Palmer immediately set his sights on the Big Ten home opener on Sunday.  The Buckeyes face No. 12 Penn State at St. John Arena.  “We’re going to go out and wrestle hard and we’re going to beat them,” Palmer said.Despite trying to break the home attendance record and Terrelle Pryor’s appearance as honorary captain, Palmer insists nerves won’t be a factor.  “Having more people there can only help us,” Palmer said. “You thrive off the crowd.”Although Palmer is a senior this year, his name will still resonate on the mat. His younger brother, Collin Palmer, is a freshman on the team. This is the first time the two have wrestled together in four years.  The Palmer brothers don’t compete in the same weight class, and they insist they are competitive with each other, not against. They are competing to help one another.  They have the same goals in mind, but Collin admits that Lance usually pushes him more because he’s the harder worker.  “I take [Collin] through the ropes and get him up to the level that I want him to be at for next year when he steps up,” Lance said. The Palmer brothers left a resounding legacy at St. Edwards and anticipate leaving that same mark in Buckeye wrestling lore. read more

Womens Basketball Ohio State comes away with 7870 victory at home against

Ohio State freshman guard Dorka Juhasz (14) attempts to put up a layup in the first half of the game against Indiana on Jan. 10. Ohio State won 55-50. Credit: Casey Cascaldo | Photo EditorThursday night’s contest between the Ohio State women’s basketball team and the Illinois Fighting Illini featured an ensemble performance from the Buckeyes that led to the victory. Ohio State saw four different players score 10 or more points, led by redshirt senior forward Makayla Waterman who scored a career-high 18 points complemented by seven rebounds, three assists and three steals. Coming off a road win against Minnesota, Waterman and the Buckeyes (9-10, 5-5 Big Ten) once again came from behind in the fourth quarter to defeat Illinois (9-12, 1-9 Big Ten) 78-70. Waterman said she felt comfortable out on the court in her matchup. “I just felt like I had an advantage over the person who was guarding me tonight,” Waterman said. “I’m an undersized post in the Big Ten, and I think that tonight I was trying to utilize that. I’ve really been focusing on finishing my moves and that was what worked tonight.”Also getting in on the scoring were redshirt senior guard Carly Santoro, who contributed 16 points with four assists, redshirt senior guard Carmen Grande, who scored 15 points on 4-of-12 shooting, with six rebounds and five assists and redshirt senior guard Andreana Miller, who shot 4-7 from the 3-point line to score 14 points. Waterman was quick to praise her teammates’ performances, but also cited that their play was not perfect.“We’re really trying to outwork people at this point, and I think that we did that tonight,” Waterman said. “This team, we know we have to win together. We know that each side is going to be collective whether it’s a couple people scoring double figures or everyone scoring we know that it’s going to be like that. There’s not one person can carry us this season.”In addition to the contributions from multiple members of the team, a key difference maker was Ohio State shooting extremely well from the 3-point line, hitting a season high 12 from deep on 27 attempts. The reason for the success was Ohio State taking advantage of Illinois, prioritizing the paint on defense according to head coach Kevin McGuff.“Illinois was in the point trying to take away our driving lanes and that gave us more 3-point opportunities,” McGuff said. “The way they were guarding us just led to us taking advantage and led to things being more open out there.”The game was largely back and forth between both teams. The Buckeyes led 35-26 at halftime and looked poised to take control of the game, but Illinois came out charging in the third quarter, scoring 23 in the frame to take a one-point lead into the fourth quarter. McGuff cited the play in the third quarter as a lack of focus from the Ohio State players.“Tonight, we played really hard, but we had some stretches where mentally we made a lot of errors,” McGuff said. “I told the players it’s great that we can learn that lesson off a win, but we put ourselves in positions where we could’ve lost that game.”But Ohio State pulled it together mentally and had a quick run of 10 points early in the fourth quarter featuring 3 pointers from Santoro and Miller to take control of the game. Illinois attempted to mount a late comeback, but staunch defense by the Buckeyes prevented the threat of a loss. Santoro said the success came from Ohio State taking advantage of foul trouble by Illinois. “We just really focused on attacking,” Santoro said. “We were in double bonus halfway through the third quarter, so that gave us an advantage and we used it to get to the free-throw line and hit some big shots at the end.” Freshman forward Dorka Juhasz returned to the court in limited play after being sidelined for two games with a sprained ankle. Juhasz scored three points coming off the bench and had five rebounds in 17 minutes of play..McGuff praised Juhasz for returning to the game and playing well with her injury. “I don’t know if she’s back to 100 percent yet, but it was very good to see her back out there,” McGuff said. “We needed her out there and one thing I thought that was really good was her size bothered them around the basket.” Ohio State heads back out on the road in a matchup against the Northwestern Wildcats. Tip-off is set at Welsh-Ryan Arena at 4:00 p.m. on Sunday. read more

A MESSAGE FROM THE PREMIER DR THE HON RUFUS W EWING

It is in this vein that I have already reached out to the Governor asking him to begin engaging with criminal investigation units abroad, whose strength we can pull on to assist us in bringing perpetrators to justice, and I will be following up with him and the Commissioner of Police to ensure that all resources are behind bringing to close the spate of murders and other serious crimes within our borders.“To the family and friends of Ms. Arias and the Dominican community living among us, I offer, on behalf of my Government, my deepest sympathy. Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this time and I want you to know that we will do our utmost to bring those responsible to justice.“I have reached out to the Dominican Consul in an attempt to reach Mr. Danilo Medina Sanchez, the President of the Dominican Republic, to assure him and his countrymen of our commitment to finding the answers to the death of Ms. Arias and to bringing to justice those persons responsible for the deaths of Dominicans within our country and to also assure them that we take seriously our responsibility for the security and safety of our people and all persons residing among us.“I am therefore imploring all persons with any knowledge that can assist the police with this and any crimes to please speak up. We, the Government, will continue to do our best to combat crime and we ask that you also play your part to help us keep our country safe.“May God continue to protect you, may He continue to bless you and may He continue to bless these our Turks and Caicos Islands.” Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Related Items:last_img read more
