Premier League boost for golf

first_img The power of football will help more young people get into golf thanks to a £16.8 million partnership announced today by Sport England and the Premier League.Golf is one of four new sports which will join the community programme, Premier League 4 Sport (PL4Sport), alongside athletics, boxing and tennis. They will be added to the eight Olympic, Paralympic and Commonwealth sports already on offer.The pull of the Premier League will help attract youngsters aged 14-plus to try StreetGolf – the urban, play-anywhere version of the sport, pioneered by the Golf Foundation under its HSBC Golf Roots campaign.Ten Premier League and Championship clubs have already opted to offer golf from September and, with presentations still to be made to other clubs, it is anticipated that more are likely to join them. The first football clubs to get into golf are Aston Villa, Blackburn Rovers, Bolton Wanderers, Derby County, Everton, Hull, QPR, Southampton, Sunderland and West Bromwich Albion.All coaching will be taken by PGA professionals and the satellite clubs which will be created will have links with their local golf clubs and their County Golf Partnerships, which work to grow the game.Golf’s inclusion in PL4Sport has been welcomed by the England Golf Partnership, which brings together the amateur governing body, England Golf, and the Professional Golfers’ Association to increase participation, with the support of the Golf Foundation and Sport England Lottery Funding.Brendon Pyle, the Golf Foundation’s development manager, said: “This is great news for golf because the power of football means we will be able to reach many more young people.  And, because most football clubs are based in town and city areas, we’ll be able to reach a totally new audience.“StreetGolf is the ideal way to introduce them to golf. It’s a different, edgy and versatile game which you can play anywhere. When we introduced it to the PL4Sport co-ordinators they loved it, it really changed their perception of how golf can be delivered.”A pilot scheme run by the Golf Foundation and Bolton Wanderers FC has already proved successful, attracting more than twice as many young people as predicted. Brendon added: “We feel confident that through Premier League 4 Sport we will be able to reach more young people and demonstrate the positive life skills that the sport promotes”.Today’s launch of a new three-year partnership between Sport England and the Premier League includes a demonstration of StreetGolf. Maria Miller, the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport, is pictured receiving an introduction to the game.The £16.8m investment will drive the expansion of two community programmes – PL4Sport and a rebranded Kickz. The funding will be equally split with each partner committing £1.3 million per year to PL4Sport and £1.5 million per year to the Kickz initiative, supporting young people from disadvantaged communities.Sport England and the Premier League first combined in 2009 to create PL4Sport, which has already engaged 60,000 young people and created 320 of the clubs that formed the basis for the satellite clubs now being introduced across the country by Sport England and its partners. Under the England Golf Partnership, the sport has set an ambitious target of 280 new satellite clubs over the next 4 years.The new PL4 Sport partnership will see:•         Athletics, boxing, golf and tennis added to the eight Olympic, Paralympic and Commonwealth sports already on offer through PL4Sport•         A further 270 satellite sports clubs created, where tens of thousands of young people will enjoy these sports•         More than 1,500 volunteers trained, 450 competitions delivered and 2,500 sports qualifications obtained.Since 2006, Kickz has helped 71,500 youngsters to get involved in sport, targeting the hardest to reach young people from disadvantaged areas. The expansion of the re-branded programme will see:•         An extra 30,000 young people engaged over the next three years•         A further 3,000 volunteers trained and 600 competitions delivered. 2 Jul 2013 Premier League boost for golf last_img read more

Nelson Selects all smiles after bringing home the bronze medal at BC Soccer U14 Girl’s Provincial B Cup

first_imgThe goalie had been recently replaced after the starter was injured late in the contest.“Two of our players hit the ball at the same time,” Borhi explained. “We’re not really sure which player scored.”Nelson opened the tournament losing 3-0 to Kelowna.The Okanagan squad scored early in the contest as the Selects looked to get accustomed to provincial play.Nelson then tied Surrey United Infinity 3-3 in a high scoring contest Friday to get some points in the standings.Faced with a chance to advance to the medal round with a win, Nelson doubled Kootenay South 4-2 Saturday.“We seem to get better as the tournament progressed,” Borhi said.“We scored seven goals in the tournament, so we knew we could score,”“The key for us was not giving up any early goals today and the defence playing safe,” he added.Nelson also won the Fair Play award for most sportsmanlike team in the U14 Girl’s Division.“Winning that award was very nice, kind of capped off the tournament,” Borhi said.Winning the Gold Medal is always the ultimate goal for teams.However, on this day winning Bronze was just as good, if not better for the Nelson U14 Selects. Sometimes winning bronze is just as good, if not better, than capturing gold.The Nelson Selects scored in the final minute of the game to edge Powell River Predators 1-0 in the Bronze Medal Match of the BC Soccer U14 Girl’s Provincial B Cup Sunday at the Lakeside Soccer Pitch.“This is really exciting especially score the winning goal in the last seconds of the game,” said Nelson coach Rob Borhi.“We were under pressure for a lot of the game but our defence played well under pressure. There was no time remaining in the game but the ref allowed the corner and we were able to score on it, which was great.”The U14 Girl’s Division is one of three titles up for grab in Nelson during the BC Soccer Provincial B Cup.Nelson hosted the U13, U14 and U15 Girl’s Divisions while 100 Mile House hosted the boy’s categories.The U16 to U18 Divisions, for both boy’s and girls, were held in Penticton.Sophie Borhi took the corner, placing a high cross into the penalty area.Two Selects converged in the ball — Michaela Anderson and Reece Hunt — lofting a high shot over the outstretched hands of the Powell River keeper.last_img read more

Amazon To Developers: Bring Us Your Android Tablet Apps, Pretty Please

first_imgWhy IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces App functionality doesn’t match the product description. We’ve found that this is the top reason.For apps designed to run on phones, the app loses state or data when it receives a message or phone call. The app should preserve its state when receiving or placing text messages and phone calls.The icons don’t match. Sometimes, the icons submitted in the developer portal don’t match the icons included in the application. They need to match.App stability or failure to launch. One in 20 of the app failures is stability related. For example, because the SD card path is not necessarily the same for all devices, assumptions about the SD card path can cause failures. Another common example is failing to include referenced libraries.Not replacing unsupported APIs with the Amazon equivalent API.Security. One example we’ve seen is writing plain-text login credentials to the log. Apps need to be secure for customers.Reason No. 5 has a comical undertone as it alludes to the fact that Amazon doesn’t want apps in its Appstore using Google’s Android APIs (hence, sending information back to Google). Other than changing the APIs from Amazon to Google, it seems that most Android apps can be sent to Amazon with little to no additional resources put into it to adhere to the Kindle Fire. Amazon’s biggest problem when trying to attract developers actually has nothing to do with portability or the volume of apps in its Appstore. It’s sales. Amazon is notorious for not publishing its volume of Kindle sales and that goes double for its Fire tablets. Developers follow the eyeballs, and right now the eyeballs are on iPads and Apple’s App Store and Android devices that can access Google Play.If Amazon were to come out and say, “we have sold 50 million Kindle Fires” or some other impressive number, it would be go a long way in attracting developers to its Appstore. Related Posts When Amazon latched onto to Android in 2011 to run its new Kindle Fire tablets, the idea made a lot of sense. Amazon didn’t have to do the grunt work of making its own operating system and could tap into a burgeoning ecosystem of mobile developers building apps for the platform. Over the last couple of years, Amazon has been trying to galvanize Android developers to bring their apps over to the Appstore for Android so they will be available on the Kindle Fire. Amazon has done this by giving developers tools to monetize and promote their apps, launching a potentially lucrative “free app of the day” program (that has experienced its fair share of problems in the past) and promising that their apps would be discoverable on the Kindle Fire. In its quest to rein in more developers and more apps, Amazon announced today that three-quarters of Android apps it tested will run on the Kindle Fire as is, with no additional coding required.A Fork Less TakenThat announcement is Amazon’s effort to remind everyone that while it “forked” Android for its own purposes, it is still essentially the same Android that runs on tablets and smartphones from other manufacturers like Samsung or LG. The 2012 crop of Kindle Fire tablets employ Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich (at API level 15).Amazon does strip some of the features of Android for its Kindle Fire devices to customize to hardware requirements or restraints, but at heart it’s still basic Android. (Excepting that Amazon has stripped out all Google capabilities in Android from the operating system, including the browser, Google apps like Maps or Gmail and access to the Google Play Store.)Amazon has created its own “launcher” program that sits over the operating system like a skin. The difference between this launcher (also known as a skin) and one from another manufacturer like Samsung is that users can’t easily change it without doing some technical heavy lifting. A customized launcher is almost exactly what Facebook did with its ill-fated “Home” product earlier this year, except that Facebook allows users to toggle back to a stock Android experience underneath Home. With the Kindle Fire, it’s all Amazon, all the time.Yet This Fork Has ProngsSo, if Amazon has forked the operating system but still using the basic properties of Android, why doesn’t its Appstore have a 100% acceptance rate? Amazon lists six reasons which are all fairly common to an Appstore that pre-screens apps before publishing them.From Amazon’s developer blog: Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech …center_img The Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technology dan rowinski According to numbers from analytics firm Localytics in January, the Kindle Fire has 33% of the Android tablet market in the United States. That’s much higher than the Barnes & Noble Nook, which takes second place with 10%. Tags:#Amazon Appstore#Android#app development#Kindle Fire last_img read more

Police to Maintain Presence Along Major Thoroughfares

first_img Commanding Officer of the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) Traffic and Highway Division, Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Calvin Allen says that his team will be maintaining a presence along major thoroughfares in the corporate area, in order to ease the flow of traffic.SSP Allen told a recent meeting of the Rotary Club of St. Andrew North that the division stands ready to grant whatever assistance is necessary, to facilitate commuters getting around on time.“By making our presence felt, we expect to reduce the level of indiscipline and we are committed to that even while we operate against the background of our resource constraints,” he stated.He informed that his team has maintained a presence on Constant Spring Road and pointed out that it is the second most used corridor in the corporate area, second only to Nelson Mandela Highway which has approximately 65,000 vehicles traversing it on a daily basis.“Constant Spring Road sees somewhere between 46,000 and 48,000 vehicles on a daily basis, so it is important for us to be out there, especially when some of the unruly public passenger vehicle drivers try to get away with untoward behavior like the use of the opposite lane to try to avoid the traffic flow,” SSP Allen said.“I would like to have similar presence on Hope Road, Red Hills Road, Washington Boulevard and Barbican Road. We are working towards that, but there are some constraints,” he added.SSP Allen noted that he is mindful of the many challenges that remain on the roadways, such as the indiscipline of motorist.According to the Traffic Division Head, at least two other situations affect the flow of traffic, one of which is the country’s current vehicular population.“Over the last five years, the number of vehicles on our roads has basically doubled. As such, there is a peak hour flow right throughout the day. At the same time, we are in the process of bringing our road infrastructure in line with that,” he said. SSP Allen noted that road conditions also affect the flow of traffic and that he is happy for the road repairs that are currently taking place.“When a vehicle slows down to negotiate a rough area, it affects as many as 100 that may be behind. Many times you are in traffic and wonder what is happening down the road thinking it may be a collision when it is just motorists slowing down in a rough area,” he explained. He expressed confidence that once the road repairs have been completed, there should be a positive effect on traffic in the corporate area.
