Hubert Lawrence | Dacres – Jamaican male athlete of the year

Hubert Lawrence | Dacres – Jamaican male athlete of the year

first_imgIn 2018, Jamaica’s Fedrick Dacres walked into the circle to compete in the discus throw on 25 occasions. He emerged victorious 21 times, taking five wins from six starts on the IAAF Diamond League and finished six meets with marks beyond 68 metres. That’s a 2018 campaign no other male Jamaican athlete can match. It’s ironic that in the first season since the incomparable Usain Bolt, that a thrower is the top Jamaican of the year. Schooled on sprints, local fans simply had to admire Dacres as he pumped out victory after victory over the rest of the world’s best. His stunning portfolio peaked with a national record of 69.67 metres in Stockholm, a distance that took him closer to the holy grail of the 70-metre territory. His wins didn’t come cheaply and those nine meets over 68m are a testament to his consistent quality. The foundation has been built on hard work at the University of the West Indies, which often includes sessions where Dacres and his training partners Traves Smikle, Basil Bingham and Isheka Binns each launch dozens of throws in search of gold-medal technique. Eight-win streak Already the first Jamaican to win a throwing event at World Youth and World Junior levels, the Julian Robinson-coached Dacres waved the flag with wins at the Commonwealth Games in April, the Athletics World Cup and at the IAAF North American Central American and Caribbean Championship in July. Last week, with an eight-win streak on the line in the last round of the IAAF Continental Cup, he fought off the forces of physics to stay balanced as he uncorked a 67.97m winner. Of the 10 Jamaicans at the Continental Cup, only he and 100-metre hurdler Danielle Williams managed individual wins. 110 metres hurdler Ronald Levy, a winner at the Commonwealth Games and at the Paris and London Diamond League meets, and the exciting Akeem Bloomfield, who followed his fine collegiate 400-metre running with a super 200-metre clocking of 19.81 seconds in London, laid the base for big campaigns next year, when the World Championship come into focus again, but Dacres was way ahead. Sadly, injury sidelined hurdler supreme Omar McLeod before he could get into full stride. A knee niggle and the analysis of Dacres’ four losses present a note of caution. He was defeated twice by Lithuania’s world champion Andrius Gudzius and twice by Daniel Stahl of Sweden, who was the runner-up when the Worlds were last staged in 2017. They saw his ascent this year and will steel themselves for the confrontation in Doha, where the World Championships will be staged between September 28 and October 6. Simply put, Fedrick is a clear pick for the title of Jamaican male athlete of the year. His super season puts the matter beyond doubt. – Hubert Lawrence watched Dacres win at the Charlie Fuller Memorial at Manchester High in January.last_img read more

Spaceport funds in budget?

Spaceport funds in budget?

first_imgMOJAVE – Antelope Valley legislators are trying to get into the state budget an $11 million loan to help Mojave Airport build a hangar complex and terminal for space tourism. The 40,000-square-foot hangar and a 50,000-square-foot terminal with associated hangars for preflight training are expected to be used first by British tycoon Sir Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic, which is working with Mojave’s Burt Rutan to build a fleet of sub-orbital spacecraft to carry passengers paying $200,000 each. “We have to be competitive with other states to maintain this unique business opportunity in California,” said state Sen. George Runner, R-Lancaster. “In return, we get our money back and hopefully we can be attractive for this industry.” Runner and state Sen. Roy Ashburn, R-Bakersfield, co-authored a letter to Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger asking him to include the loan for the East Kern Airport District, which operates the Mojave Airport. A similar letter was sent by Assemblywoman Sharon Runner, R-Lancaster. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREBasketball roundup: Sierra Canyon, Birmingham set to face off in tournament quarterfinalsThe request is probably too late to be included in the governor’s May budget revision, but could be one of the items negotiated for inclusion in the final budget, George Runner said. But a consultant to the Senate Transportation and Housing Committee refers to the loan as “millions for a billionaire.” “The proposed research facility would be occupied by Virgin Galactic and its partners for research and development activities,” consultant Jennifer Gress wrote. “In effect, the state would be subsidizing the construction of a building to house operations for a company whose owner has a net worth in the billions.” Mojave Airport General Manager Stu Witt called the consultant’s analysis a disservice to California. “In the first place, the money is not going to Richard Branson – period,” Witt said. “It’s going to the East Kern Airport District. With that money, we will build infrastructure.” In their letter, Ashburn and Runner said traditional funding mechanisms that are available to other local governments such as general obligation bonds and revenue bonds are not feasible because of the small, rural nature of the airport. The senators also wrote that the state is facing intense competition from for the space tourism industry. “For now, we have an advantage over these other locations – we have existing infrastructure in place at the Mojave Airport,” the senators wrote. “But if we want to continue to be the leader in this new industry, California must invest in the airport.” In addition to seeking the funding through the budget process, Ashburn has authored Senate Bill 1671 to authorize the loan. That bill is on hold in the Senate Appropriations Committee. Ashburn calls the request to assist the airport district a “modest loan to help keep this 21st century industry here where it began.” Witt emphasized the request is for a loan, not a grant. Witt said other states are competing to grab a share of the emerging space tourism industry. New Mexico, for example, is putting up $225 million to build a spaceport. Branson has said Virgin Galactic’s space flights will begin in Mojave, and are expected to move to New Mexico when that state’s spaceport is built. “I think the tenants (of the airport) want to know if California is a long-term player in this industry,” Witt said. In her letter to Schwarzenegger, Sharon Runner also pointed out the competition from other states. “Currently, other states are actively working to build their own spaceports to seize upon this emerging commercial space flight industry and technology,” Sharon Runner wrote. “The $11 million loan contemplated under SB 1671 is a minimal upfront investment, which will reap sizeable returns in the future, especially if we can prevent this industry from leaving the state.” james.skeen@dailynews (661) 267-5743160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Northern Ireland captain Steven Davis targets Swiss success ahead of 100th cap

Northern Ireland captain Steven Davis targets Swiss success ahead of 100th cap

first_img Steven Davis 1 Steven Davis met the Duke of Cambridge last week and will earn his 100th Northern Ireland cap on Thursday, but insists the World Cup play-off with Switzerland is more important than such personal landmarks.Southampton midfielder Davis, 32, will become just the third Northern Irish centurion, following in the footsteps of Pat Jennings and Aaron Hughes when he leads Michael O’Neill’s team out at Windsor Park in the first leg against the Swiss.It is another significant milestone for a player who recently received his MBE at Buckingham Palace, but Davis, one of his country’s most understated figures, would rather his 100th cap slid under the radar.“In all honesty I’m not counting caps,” he said.“I don’t want anything to distract from my or the team’s preparations for the game. That will be at the very back of my mind.“It’s a huge landmark and I’m delighted to reach it, but my focus is solely on the game and hopefully after the play-offs I can look back and say it was a special achievement.“It’s not my personality to be sentimental. It’s more a nice feeling for my family at the game. They can enjoy it more, but your focus automatically is on the game and you are in the zone at that point.”As part of O’Neill’s meticulous preparations, Davis and his international colleagues have been given pamphlets of information on their Swiss opponents since meeting up in Belfast.Yet his skipper had already been made somewhat aware of the size of the task by a member of the Royal Family.“It was great meeting Prince William and a great experience,” Davis revealed.“It’s something you are not used to, but it was great to be in the room with other great people receiving their awards. They have done very well in their own fields, whether it is police, military, ambulance or professors, and it was nice to experience that with my family.“It was a special day for my family and Prince William was very knowledgeable on the game. He talked about the play-offs, knew we were playing the Swiss and said it would be very difficult, but he wished us all the best. It was a memorable day.”Davis, who led his country at Euro 2016, their first major tournament in three decades, was there for his services to football and admitted he was moved by speaking to others being honoured in various fields.“It is very humbling to be there and recognise what people have achieved in their lives,” he added.“I got an award for doing something that I have loved and it’s not something I ever expected, but I’m very proud of. I’ll probably keep in touch with a few of the award winners.“There was a guy from Glasgow who had lost his son and then went on a campaign to raise money for a teenage cancer fund, it was nice to share that experience.”last_img read more

Italian Auto Supplier Chooses Speedway, Indiana for New Headquarters

Italian Auto Supplier Chooses Speedway, Indiana for New Headquarters

first_imgDETROIT (Jan. 15, 2015) – Governor Mike Pence joined executives from Brescia, Italy-based OMR Automotive, a tier 1 automotive supplier for the Fiat Group, in Detroit today to announce the company’s plans to locate its North American headquarters in Speedway, Indiana, creating up to 60 new jobs by 2016.“OMR’s North American headquarters will be in great hands with Hoosiers in the driver’s seat,” said Pence. “Indiana’s motor vehicle industry is prominent around the world. Japanese companies like Toyota, Honda and Subaru helped launch the international automotive presence in Indiana that has multiplied in recent years to now include Italian companies like OMR, proving Indiana is a state that works for the automotive industry.”OMR Automotive will invest $10 million to construct a 43,000 square-foot facility on its 2.5-acre campus located at 4755 Gillman St. in Speedway, which includes the installation of new equipment and advanced manufacturing technologies. The company also purchased an additional 2.5 acres located at 4743 Gillman St. for future expansion. As OMR’s fifth location outside of Italy, the company expects to begin construction on its Speedway facility by April, with operations launching by the end of the year. The operation will house the company’s machining and assembling of automotive components for engines, transmissions and chassis. “Indiana stands out as the ideal place for our North American home base, situated in Speedway, a town known the world over for its legacy in auto racing,” said Marco Bonometti, chairman of OMR. “Our team looked across the region for a place that would maximize growth opportunities for our world-class manufacturing operations, building parts in cars on roads all around the world today. We were impressed with the tax structure and affordable business climate in Indiana, and look forward to a long future here.”Employing more than 1,800 associates in Italy and 1,200 around the world, the company will begin hiring engineering, administration, production line and quality control professionals as well as machine operators and skilled equipment mechanics in Speedway by the end of the year.Established in 1919 and still 100 percent owned by the Bonometti family, OMR is a tier 1 components supplier of engines, suspensions, gears, braking systems, chassis and integrated systems for the automotive industry. With 10 locations in Italy, as well as locations in India, China, Brazil and Morocco, the company is a worldwide supplier for original equipment manufacturers in the Fiat Chrysler Group including Fiat, Lancia, Alfa Romeo, Chrysler, Jeep, Ferrari and Maserati. The company also serves automotive customers including General Motors, Volkswagen, Ford and Toyota.“Given the town of Speedway’s racing history and automotive roots, it is a complete privilege to welcome such a well-known and successful international industry leader to open its first and only headquarters in North America,” said David Lindsey, Speedway Town Council president.The Indiana Economic Development Corporation will provide the Speedway Redevelopment Commission with up to $1,000,000 in infrastructure assistance from the state’s Industrial Development Grant Fund. The town of Speedway and Speedway Redevelopment Commission will consider additional tax abatement.Today Pence is leading a one-day economic development and jobs mission to the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, where he is sharing Indiana’s story as a state that works with executives representing some of the biggest names in the automotive industry. The Indiana automotive industry produced more than 1.1 million cars and light trucks in 2013 and ranks second in the nation for automotive gross domestic product. Vehicle and automotive parts exports remain Indiana’s largest export industry, ranking it in the top five exporting states of motor vehicle parts and accessories in the United States.last_img read more

Minerals beneficiation policy approved

first_img10 June 2011 The Cabinet has approved minerals beneficiation as official policy for South Africa, opening up exciting opportunities for long-term investment in the beneficiation/ manufacturing sector of the economy.“This strategy provides a framework that seeks to translate the country’s sheer comparative advantage inherited from a significant mineral resource reservoir to a national competitive advantage,” government spokesman Jimmy Manyi told a media briefing in Pretoria on Thursday following the Cabinet’s regular Wednesday meeting.As a vital input to the government’s industrialisation programme, the new policy presented exciting opportunities for long-term investment, for both local and foreign, into the beneficiation/manufacturing sector of the economy, he said.“This will leverage optimal benefit from enhanced value of exports, increasing sources for consumption of local content, and contribute towards the creation of sustainable jobs.”Cabinet also approved the design of the commemorative crown-size silver coins in celebration of the 90th Anniversary of the South African Reserve Bank.The new coin design would be published in the Government Gazette, Manyi said.Sapalast_img read more

Open Source: EU EIF Ruling Jilts Proprietary Software Vendors

Open Source: EU EIF Ruling Jilts Proprietary Software Vendors

first_imgIn mid-December the European Community ruled on their policy for evaluating software to be used in the transfer of data between the member nations.  The new rules are strongly tilted in favor of open source solutions.The document is called the European Interoperability Framework (EIF).  The framework is announced as one component of the five-year Digital Agenda and the eGovernment Action Plan.  The goal of the policy to to be able to develop efficient European cross-border data transfer and communication.  This is also a central goal of the Europe 2020 policy. Unlike other rules in the EU, this one does not require approval of the European Parliament or member states.Prior to the announcement, there was strong lobbying from big software vendors.  Microsoft, SAP, Dell, Adobe and HP and other members of the Business Software Alliance (BSA) argued that rather than expressly endorsing “open specifications” that software used by the EU should be evaluated on the basis of Fair, Reasonable and Non-Discriminatory (FRAND) terms.  The BSA argued that open specifications would end up stifling competition.  “If the EU adopts a preference for royalty/patent-free specifications, this undermines the incentives that firms have to contribute leading-edge innovations to standardization – resulting in less innovative European specifications, and less competitive European products.”On the other side of the debate, companies in the group Openforum Europe like Google, IBM, Oracle and Red Hat advocated that the EU adopt a strong policy of open specifications.  The “EIF will help public authorities escape from the sort of technology lock-in into one single vendor that until now has been the norm across Europe,” argued the group.In the end, the text of the ruling was fully supportive of the use of open specifications. “Due to their positive effect on interoperability, the use of such open specifications has been promoted in many policy statements and is encouraged for European public service delivery.  The positive effect of open specifications is also demonstrated by the Internet ecosystem.”But there were cracks in the policy that gave a nod to proprietary vendors.  The ruling said that “Open specs should be favoured due to their positive effect on interoperability, however, public administrations may decide to use less open specifications, if open specifications do not exist or do not meet functional interoperability needs.”  It goes on to say that specifications that will be adopted must be  “mature and sufficiently supported by the market.”last_img read more

4 lessons learned from 200,000 Amazon beauty, personal care product pages

4 lessons learned from 200,000 Amazon beauty, personal care product pages

first_imgNearly 70 percent of consumers say they search for and purchase beauty and personal products on Amazon.This will come as no surprise to anyone watching or involved in the space. Increasingly, consumers have been opting for digital convenience from the beauty and personal products category. As new models disrupt the space, from subscribe and save options, digital-native vertical brands, and Amazon’s private label Basic Care products, it seems established brands have been hit the hardest when it comes to losing market share.Given the importance of your digital shelf performance, and the rapid pace of Amazon’s dominance of the consumables market overall, I took a close look at what was winning on the website as part of my work at my company Salsify. As in many markets, the tactics to successfully sell beauty and personal care on Amazon differ slightly depending on the price point.But after analyzing more than 200,000 product pages on Amazon, I noted four overarching lessons. Many product pages fail to provide ample content for shoppers, giving beauty and personal care brands a significant opportunity to win in the category. Let’s look at those four lessons. Posted on 13th September 2018Digital Marketing FacebookshareTwittertweetGoogle+share 4 lessons learned from 200,000 Amazon beauty, personal care product pagesYou are here: Lesson 1: Image is everythingConsumers expect more images, even for low-priced products. Be sure to provide several high-quality images of the product that demonstrate what the packaging looks like, lists any key ingredient information or dosing information, shows the product in use, and provides shoppers a sense of the size or options that your product may come in.Across price points on Amazon, I saw that ‘Top Performer’ pages (those within the top 10 percent of sales rank) had a minimum of double the image count of ‘Poor Performer’ pages (bottom 10 percent of sales rank).Even basic hygiene goods categories with products like cotton swabs or toothpaste priced under $10 had an average of 4.5 images for top performers.Use the brand products you have today to help your shoppers see exactly what they are buying and lend more credibility to the page. In addition, I saw many brands reflecting the answers to commonly asked questions or spotlighting key features of the product in an image to catch shoppers attention to primary reasons to buy.Lesson 2: Wisdom is a crowdTo beat your competitors, get your review count into the triple digits. An overwhelming trend across top-performers is the number of reviews their products receive. This clearly plays an enormous role in winning buyer trust and answering feature and benefit questions for buyers.Our analysis showed that rather than upping bullet count, having hundreds of reviews on a product page was an enormous factor in winning sales.For example, in trusted skin, hair care treatments and cleansers priced $50 – $99.99, Top Performers had an average of 211 product reviews. The low performers in this category had an average of 11.3 product reviews.While Amazon has clear policies against incentivizing or paying for product reviews, many brands are able to improve their counts with basic post-purchase follow-up. Include a request for reviews in packaging and any post-purchase emails.Lesson 3: It doesn’t take a five-star ratingFollowing on the previous lesson, while review count matters, star ratings are not as critical. So don’t sweat the star ratings. If your product averages four stars on Amazon, you are in good company in the beauty and personal care category.Across every price point, there was a mere 0.5 difference in average ratings from top performers to low performers. In fact, regardless of whether shoppers were spending $10 or $99.99 for a product, the average star rating for top performers was 4.2. Products under $10 or over $100 had an average star rating of 4.1.The data in this part of the analysis can be used to highlight the importance of collecting buyer feedback and responding to it more than getting high marks across the board.Lesson 4: Bare minimum page is the baselineMost brands are doing the bare minimum when it comes to product content. There is an enormous opportunity for you to dominate the market. When I looked across the data, product pages in the beauty and personal care category had one image and five bullet points in the product description. Based on my experience and our company research, this is categorically the wrong approach. Top performers across every price point are using images and outstanding content to tell the full brand story rather than relying on bullets, titles or description length.By investing in product content beyond the minimum required by Amazon, brands have the opportunity to increase Sales Rank and market share on the website at a critical moment of its continued growth.Top-performing products generally have product pages that quickly give consumers a robust view of what they might buy — particularly through imagery and reviews.The post 4 lessons learned from 200,000 Amazon beauty, personal care product pages appeared first on Marketing Land.From our sponsors: 4 lessons learned from 200,000 Amazon beauty, personal care product pagescenter_img HomeDigital Marketing4 lessons learned from 200,000 Amazon beauty, personal care product pages Related postsLytics now integrates with Google Marketing Platform to enable customer data-informed campaigns14th December 2019The California Consumer Privacy Act goes live in a few short weeks — Are you ready?14th December 2019ML 2019121313th December 2019Global email benchmark report finds email isn’t dead – it’s essential13th December 2019Keep your LinkedIn advertising strategy focused in 202012th December 20192019 benchmark report: brand vs. non-brand traffic in Google Shopping12th December 2019last_img read more
