first_imgExperienced campaigner Richard ‘Spoon’ McCallum has retired as goalkeeper of Red Stripe Premier League club Waterhouse FC. He is now acting general secretary at the Drewsland-based club. “I have retired because of personal reasons, to pursue a bachelors degree in production and operation,” said McCallum, who stood between the sticks at Waterhouse for 12 years, during an interview with The Gleaner yesterday. “The club was notified two months ago, and it is effective as at December 31, 2015,” he added. McCallum was approached to take up a position as general secretary, at the club because Felix Porter has vacated the post due to health reasons. “The club (Waterhouse) approached me to be acting general secretary, and I duly accepted the post,” McCallum informed. He said the players in the senior team at the club expressed regrets with him leaving at this time. “I spoke to the players, and some have expressed regrets and want me to delay the decision, but I have to think about life after football. I can’t continue to focus on goalkeeping and school at the same time,” McCallum said. McCallum also represented Invaders FC for one year and Seba (now Montego Bay United) for three years, before journeying from St James to St Andrew. He made his international debut for Jamaica in 2006, and also represented the country at the Under-17, Under-20 and Under-23 levels.last_img read more

first_imgStoke boss Tony Pulis felt his side ‘absolutely murdered’ Fulham – but admitted they had to weather late pressure to seal the points.The Potters enjoyed the lion’s share of chances during a forgettable clash at the Britannia Stadium, but had to settle for Charlie Adam’s decisive first half strike.And Pulis was concerned their inability to finish off Fulham could have come back to haunt them, as the Whites pressed late on.He said: “I thought we absolutely murdered them – we could have had five or six.“I thought we were the better team right up until about the 82nd minute. Then, having dominated the game we got a little bit nervous.“They had a lot of possession but it was mainly in front of us.”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 Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

first_img11 August 2008UK-based London Mining has entered the local coal mining sector with a US$120-million (about R920-million) acquisition of a 50.5% stake in DMC Energy from local diversified exploration and mining company Delta Mining Consolidated (DMC).“This acquisition will form the basis of London Mining’s new coal division, which we hope to grow rapidly in the future,” London Mining MD Christopher Brown said in a statement last week.“We are particularly excited about entering into the coal business due to the strong demand from steel making and power generation that has resulted in major price increases this year, in a similar manner to iron ore.”Following an internal reorganisation by DMC, Johannesburg-based DMC Energy will own 70% of Ashante Mineral Resource, which is based in Mpumalanga province, and 69.65% of DMC Coal, which operates in Limpopo province.Access to infrastructureAccording to the statement, Ashante Mineral Resource owns the Rietkuil coal project, which has an inferred in-situ resource of up to 288-million tonnes of coal, is situated just 13km from Eskom’s Kendal power station and 43km from the recently refurbished Grootvlei power station, and has access to rail, road and electricity infrastructure on site.DMC Coal owns the Limpopo project, which has a potential of 426-million tonnes of metallurgical and thermal coal, and the Pixley Ka Seme coal and torbanite project.That project includes a deposit in excess of 234-million tonnes of metallurgical coal, steam coal and anthracite, as well as 73-million tonnes of torbanite, a high-yielding oil shale with an estimated yield of one barrel of synthetic crude per tonne of shale.“DMC Energy has also secured an irrevocable 40-metric-ton-per-annum port allocation through the future Porto du Bella Vista port in Mozambique, and is in the process of acquiring additional coal exploration assets in Botswana, Zimbabwe and Swaziland [from DMC],” the statement read.“Rietkuil is being fast tracked into production and the other projects have substantial export potential through the new port in Mozambique,” Brown said. “This acquisition will add substantial value to London Mining.”SAinfo reporter Would you like to use this article in your publicationor on your website?See: Using SAinfo materiallast_img read more

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest If you happened to read my previous column on the topic, you know that I built an impromptu turkey hunting blind out of materials that were left behind after arsonists torched the old barn from which I had hidden and hunted gobblers for years. All that remained were the rusted, twisted roof panels atop a mound of ash, and I used the salvaged metal pieces to form a circular “hide” past which I hoped gobblers would continue to strut, as they had for years when the barn was standing.Much as I’d like to say it was a brilliant idea and worked like a charm, I can’t. In fact, it was a downright bad idea on several fronts — the first of which came when I attempted to enter the steel blind early on opening day. The fact that I was nearly so (blind) in the pre-dawn darkness factored into the misstep that sounded like someone kicking a 50 gallon oil drum when my boot didn’t quite clear the top of the panel I was stepping over.As if that thunderous announcement weren’t enough, thanks the previous night’s rains, I got to settle down into a quagmire of wet ash and fresh mud — the latter thanks to dirt kicked up by the resident groundhog that had also set up shop in the ruins. With a soaked butt and nothing more than a pair of cement blocks stacked one atop the other as a backrest, I was cold and uncomfortable and eventually soaked when the rains picked up mid-morning and drenched me from above.Because my hiding spot was surrounded by open land, I didn’t have an option to sneak out unseen under cover and find a new spot, or get closer to any distant gobblers I might have heard, so I was stuck in my miserable mud-pit. Any move by me had the potential to blow my cover for good. So, I toughed it out until the noon quitting time and slinked back to the cabin with a kink in my back, a soggy rear end and lesson hard earned.last_img read more

first_imgRelated Posts klint finley Cognitive Automation is the Immediate Future of… 3 Areas of Your Business that Need Tech Now SnapLogic is a cloud integration platform. It offers an app store (called the SnapStore) of connectors (called snaps) for integrating services like Box, Netsuite, and Salesforce.com. Unlike Jive or Salesforce.com, which offer services in addition to an app store, SnapLogic is focused on being a platform for connecting other services. Customers can also build their own snaps through a visual programming interface. SnapLogic rigorously vets submissions to its app store, and applications are sandboxed. SnapLogic Server has support for both Active Directory and LDAP, enabling enterprises to integrate services with their existing access controls. Tags:#enterprise#saas Massive Non-Desk Workforce is an Opportunity fo… SnapLogic was co-founded by CEO Gaurav Dhillon, best known as the founder of Informatica. Earlier this month, the company closed an additional $10 million in funding and Ben Horowitz of Andreessen Horowitz joined the board. Horowitz explained why Andreessen Horowitz decided to invest in SnapLogic on his blog:Ordinarily, we would automatically disqualify an entrepreneur with such a massive financial success from funding, so when he came into pitch us on his new company SnapLogic I was skeptical. At this point, you are probably thinking: “Ben, you are an idiot. Why are you against hiring successful people?” It is a long story, but in summary, one general rule of mine is don’t hire or fund rich people. The reason? Building a technology company is hard. It’s really frackin’ hard. Many of the tasks that you do when building one are no fun. When things go wrong as they always do, it’s no fun at all. Rich people tend to like to work on things that they enjoy, because if they don’t enjoy it, well, they are already rich. When the going gets tough, the rich get going . . . to their vacation homes and their yachts.As a result, much of the time that I spent evaluating Gaurav’s new company, SnapLogic, was dedicated to analyzing Gaurav’s personal motives. I wanted to know if there was some new force that could be stronger than the strong force of rich-people’s laziness. John Reed, the former CEO of Citigroup once said to me: “Ben, the only reason to start a company is because you have an irrational desire to do so, because it’s not worth the money.” I had to find out if Gaurav was irrational enough to fund. After much investigation, I found Gaurav to be completely irrational–in a good way. Although, Informatica is considered a great success, it isn’t a great success for Gaurav, because he deeply believes that both the idea and his ability to execute it exceed the outcome that he achieved. So much so that our diligence found him working round the clock, running a hyper-intense environment and looking very much like a 20 year old entrepreneur on a mission from God. When my partner Marc asked me whether we should be backing an entrepreneur who is already rich, I replied: “it depends on whether we should believe my beautiful theory or my lying eyes.” He said, “let’s go with your lying eyes.”We’ve covered Jive and Salesforce.com’s transformation into platform companies, emphasizing the Sovos Group‘s Sameer Patel’s analysis of the paradigm shift involved:Here’s what I sense: Those very CIOs that choose to buy all apps from one vendor (Oracle, SAP, etc.) do so for many reasons, but one of them is architectural convenience. They realized then that every application procured from said vendor is not going to be best in class. But when it comes to some applications, ‘living with good enough’ was a welcome tradeoff to integration headaches of a best of breed approach.What Salesforce.com seems to be doing now is setting the foundation for a standardized cloud based operating systems and development environment, yet offering the convenience of picking from a plethora of application choices for each conceivable system-of-record category via force.com to fits each customers business needs. That might just be the ticket some CIOs need to get unsatisfied business users off their back: Standardize the platform element to prevent a hodge podge architecture but shift the risk functional selection out of IT and back to business owners who can now make the decision on which application to select.SnapLogic’s approach doesn’t require that a company pay for specific services in order to gain access to a platform. SnapLogic is a bit more like an operating system for cloud services. On the other hand, it seems less well suited to the sort of casual app experimentation provided by platforms like Google Apps Marketplace and the forthcoming Jive Apps Market. That could change as more snaps are developed and submitted. IT + Project Management: A Love Affairlast_img read more

first_imgWhat it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … Related Posts Despite the advent of modern technology, many businesses still rely on obsolete methods of asset tracking. You might have a shared Excel spreadsheet keeping tabs on your most important equipment, or if you’re a small business, a whiteboard that collects your information.These systems are inherently flawed, and could end up costing you money—and time—if you don’t commit to a digital transformation soon. But how has asset tracking transformed in the past decade, and why is it so important to convert?What Are the Features of Modern Asset Tracking?So what does “modern” asset tracking look like? The best way to get up to speed is to look at an example of asset tracking software, like EZOfficeInventory, which comes with features like the following:Comprehensive logging. Most asset tracking software will help you with every stage of the tracking process, from acquisition to maintenance to end-of-life management. That way, you aren’t forced to use multiple systems or update your records inconsistently as time progresses.Digital tagging. Your system will also give you some way to digitally “tag” your assets, whether it’s through the use of RFIDs, QR codes, or some other medium. This cuts down on potential asset confusion, and makes it easier to categorize and track your assets.Simple scanning and updating. The combination of digital tags and handheld, portable scanning devices makes it easy to scan your assets and update your internal records. For some applications, the process is almost fully automated.Real-time updates. Because your assets are tracked as they’re used and scanned on a regular basis, all your records are updated in real-time, guaranteeing you have the latest information at all times.Insights and analytics. You can’t generate an analytics report based on data you keep on a whiteboard. A digital platform will draw your attention to insights and outliers, and generate regular reports you can use to facilitate better decision making in your organization.Why Digital Asset Tracking MattersSo how will the use of this technology improve your business?Time. It takes far less time to scan codes and enter the data into your system automatically than it does to manually log each record.Money. Digital asset management will alert you when it’s time to maintain or replace your equipment, and can guide you through the process of end-of-life management to ensure you maximize your return on investment.Accuracy. Because many of the processes involved with a digital system are automated or controlled by the system, you can count on more accurate information you can use to make decisions.Centralization. Data from your entire organization will be available in one, central location, making it accessible to all your managers, supervisors, and employees. You can then use that data to make better decisions in real-time, throughout the business.How to Get StartedIf you’re confused about how to get started with this digital transformation process, it’s easier than you probably think:Find the right solution. There are dozens of asset tracking platforms available, but not all of them are going to be right for your business. Spend your time looking at the features, strengths, weaknesses, and potential applications of each platform and invest in the one that best suits your industry and specific assets.Prepare the team. Staff training is imperative to ensure a smooth transition. Your team members should be fully versed in how the new system works and aware of when the changeover is going to take place, long before you finalize the installation of the new system. Try to clear up any questions or confusion before you start using it.Migrate old data (if possible). If you can, try to migrate your old asset tracking data to the new platform. This will ensure you have all your legacy information available, and make the transition process smoother. Unfortunately, this isn’t always possible due to software compatibilities, but it’s worth a shot.Pull the trigger. When all the pieces are in place, make the new system live. It’s better to switch all at once, at the start of a new week, than to try and use both systems simultaneously during a changeover period.Once you digitally transform your asset tracking system, you’ll wonder why you didn’t make the transition sooner. In the future, this tech will only become more sophisticated, with digital assistants, AI, and simplified scanning making things even easier for you and your staff.

first_imgAdvertisement LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment Talk about a rural advantage. When Toronto’s Aircraft Pictures and LA’s Cloudco Entertainment first approached US streamer Hulu and DHX TV’s Canadian net Family Channel with a live-action Holly Hobbie series for tweens and teens that’s set in a small country town, the broadcasters weren’t specifically looking for a rural-set show.But according to Aircraft producer Anthony Leo, Holly Hobbie‘s setting became a differentiator that helped the show stand out from others in the pitching process, and led to commissions from both broadcasters. Now, after the series’ US launch last November and its Canadian premiere in January, Hulu and Family Channel have ordered a second 10 x 22-minute season. “Although music is involved quite heavily, the series is not about a girl trying to be a huge star,” says Leo. “It shows kids that they don’t have to aspire to leave town and go to the big city to achieve their dreams.”Produced by Aircraft (The Breadwinner) in association with Cloudco (formerly American Greetings Entertainment) and Wexworks Media (D.N.Ace), Holly Hobbie follows a tween singer-songwriter (Ruby Jay) who saves her grandmother’s small-town café by launching open mic nights and performing original songs. The series is inspired by American Greetings’ classic girls’ character brand from the ’70s and ’80s.
