Micho defends Majwega selection

first_imgBy Nelson SsengoobaFOOTBALL. Uganda Cranes tactician Mulitin Sredojevic aka Micho has refused to be drawn into the player-club row overshadowing winger Brian Majwega’s future at league champions KCCA FC.Majwega is a subject of disciplinary issues at his employers KCCA who accuse the player of absconding from training for close to four weeks without  coach Mike Mutebi’s consent.KCCA say Majwega returned to Lugogo from his AWOL armed with a transfer to try and force an exit from KCCA citing breach of contract.Mutebi, a renowned strict disciplinarian, expressed shock on learning that a player facing disciplinary action had been summoned for national team duty. He blasted Micho and the custodians of the game, Fufa, labeling their decision “rubbish”.“Brian has not been here (KCCA FC) for a round a month. And he is called to the national team,” an angry Mutebi told the media on Tuesday after being quizzed on the players’ situation.“This player belongs to KCCA. He hasn’t been around for a month. We are the employers of this player. How does the national team invite him without consulting us? Now that is rubbish. That’s rubbish that has been going on in Ugandan football. And that’s rubbish that has followed Brian.”While Mutebi was angry with Majwega’s conduct, Micho harboured other ideas for the player. The Serbian tactician had already summoned the fleet-footed winger for national duty as Uganda Cranes intensify preparations for their forthcoming 2018 CHAN qualifier against South Sudan away in Juba on July 14.Initially, KCCA FC players were exempted from national team call-ups because of their CAF Confederations Cup exertions.True to Micho’s bile and sarcastic manner of handling communication, the Serbian has taken Mutebi’s spiteful vile head-on.First, he summoned another KCCA outcast Tom Masiko for national duty. Masiko has been left in the cold by Mutebi as the player chases exit to join Vipers SC.“If anyone has anything to speak, let that happen when the national team and KCCA engagements are done. As far as I know, Majwega is not actively playing with KCCA, he has not been considered for recent games. I don’t think I have summoned anyone who is engaged at KCCA. We respect the fact they are representing the nation and therefore I can’t disturb them for now,” Micho said.Comments Tags: CranesMajwegaMichotoplast_img read more


Warriors looking forward: How Warriors could benefit from homestand

first_img(CLICK HERE, if you are unable to view this video on your mobile device.)The Warriors (9-1) have a good thing going.

And to avoid burnout, the Warriors held optional shootaround before Friday’s game against Minnesota and an optional practice on Saturday.

Big Day for LivingSocial, with $10 Off a $20 Amazon Gift Card

first_imgTop Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting audrey watters Of course, Amazon isn’t simply just another major retailer dabbling in the daily deal business. It’s also a major investor in LivingSocial, having put $175 million into the company in December. Lightspeed Venture Partners’ Jeremy Lew calls today’s deal “the first step of operational integration from that investment.” If so, this deal may be less about selling Amazon wares than introducing Amazon customers to the daily deal company.Any predictions on how many $10 off coupons will be sold by the time the deal ends this time tomorrow? Today looks to be a record-breaking day for the daily deal site LivingSocial. It’s offering a nationwide deal: a $20 Amazon gift card for $10. In just the first few hours of the sale, users have already purchased over 243,000 coupons. Some are predicting the deal is on a course to outperform the previous blockbuster daily deal, when Groupon offered $25 off a $50 purchase at the Gap. That resulted in some $13 million worth of coupons being sold. The LivingSocial deal still has 22 hours to go and has already sold over $2 million worth of coupons.

World’s Tallest Modular Tower Opens

first_imgThe tallest modular building in the world, a 32-story residential tower, has opened its doors in New York City.There are 363 apartments at 461 Dean, part of a 22-acre development called Pacific Park Brooklyn that ultimately will include 6 million square feet of residential space and 6,430 units of housing. It was constructed at the intersection of Dean Street and Flatbush Avenue in Brooklyn next to one of the city’s major transportation hubs.Half of the units at 461 Dean have been set aside for low- and middle-income families, with studios starting at $559 a month (two-bedroom units at $727), according to an article posted at Wired. Affordable housing in New York City is in such short supply that 84,000 people submitted applications for the 181 affordable units this summer. Housing was assigned by lottery.According to the project’s website, market-rate studio apartments start at $2,450; two-bedroom units start at $4,750 a month.The building was constructed to meet the LEED-Silver standard, but the developer did not list any particular energy-efficiency features, such as added insulation or extra measures to reduce air leaks. Teething problems for modular buildingThe building — developed by Forest City Ratner Companies and designed by SHoP Architects — was constructed of modular units manufactured at the Brooklyn Navy Yard and moved to the site by truck. The building was an important test of how modular construction could make urban housing more affordable, Wired said, with Forest City originally predicting it would be ready for occupancy in 18 months and cost 20% less than a tower built conventionally.It didn’t work out that way. Construction ran two years behind schedule as the manufacturer, Skanska, struggled to develop the 960 different modules that would be needed to complete the building. The site itself also posed problems because it was triangular in shape, which resulted in triangular modules and added construction complexity.“In an effort to show modular has endless possibilities, we probably went a little overboard on the complexity,” Roger Krulak, who oversaw Forest City’s modular business, told Wired.As problems mounted, Forest City sued Skanska. Skanska returned the favor by suing Forest City, and Forest City ended up buying the module factory from Skanska. It has since sold the modular operation to Krulak, who founded a new company called Full Stack Modular.Even though the 461 Dean experiment wasn’t as successful as developers had hoped, Forest City CEO MaryAnne Gilmartin said the effort will help others develop complex modular buildings in the future, Wired said.last_img read more

Military Consumer Protection Month: Tech Support Scams

first_imgFrom the Federal Trade Commission Tech support scammers want you to believe you have a serious problem with your computer, like a virus. They want you to pay for services you don’t need to fix a problem that doesn’t exist. They often ask you to pay by wiring money, putting money on a gift card, prepaid card, or cash reload card, or using a money transfer app, because they know those types of payments can be hard to reverse.Courtesy of FTC/Military Consumer Protection MonthIf you’re looking for tech support, go to a company you know and trust, or get help from a knowledgeable friend or family member. If you search online for help, search on the company name plus “scam,” “review,” or “complaint.”If you get a phone call you didn’t expect from someone who says there’s a problem with your computer, hang up.Never call a number in a pop-up that warns you of computer problems. Real security warnings will never ask you to call a phone number.If you spot a tech support scam, tell the Federal Trade Commission: ftc.gov/complaint. Check out this article https://go.usa.gov/xmeSp or this video https://youtu.be/6nSP_cnipTY about how to avoid tech support scams.For more information on protecting your online identity, attend our webinar today, July 30 at 11 a.m. ET.

Picking Up Your End of the Stick

first_img Essential Reading! Get my 3rd book: Eat Their Lunch “The first ever playbook for B2B salespeople on how to win clients and customers who are already being serviced by your competition.” Buy Now If you won’t help yourself, then no one else will help you as much as they might otherwise.If you won’t act on your own behalf, you make it difficult for others to intervene on your behalf.If you don’t believe that you need to do something, to take some action to further towards your own goals and ambitions, others are less likely to throw themselves into helping you.There are certain things that no one can—or should—do for you.If you are not willing to prospect and create new opportunities, then additional training, additional tools, and additional coaching aren’t going to help you. You have to be willing to get uncomfortable and do what is necessary. Your sales manager and sales leaders can’t do your work for you.If you aren’t willing to prepare for a sales call, you make it difficult for your prospective client to help you understand their needs or to create a compelling case for change. If the first question you ask is, “So what does your company do,” you are difficult to help.If you won’t put forth the effort to read and study your business, your client’s business, and the general issues impacting your prospective client’s business, your marketing department may provide you with a slide of compelling reasons your dream client should change. But, you won’t have the chops to engage in a conversation with your dream client, least of all the ones who need a really trusted advisor to fill in their gaps.No one can provide you with the internal motivation you need to wake up when the alarm clock rings, foregoing 9 minutes of extra sleep so you can hit the gym before work.No one can make you do the most difficult—or most important—tasks first thing each day, ensuring that you can call your day productive and successful before 9:00 AM each day.No one can be “willing” for you. You have to be that for yourself.There are plenty of people who would love to help you. They will give you the answers. They will model success for you. They will even pick up the other end of the stick for you. But if you don’t pick up your end of the stick, you are refusing their help.If you want help, start by helping yourself. You’ll be surprised by how much other people will help when they see you helping yourself.last_img read more

Shipping Woes to Push NYK Lines Loss to USD 19 Bn

first_imgzoom Japan’s shipping major Nippon Yusen Kabushiki Kaisha (NYK Line) expects to see a record loss of JPY 195 billion (USD 1.9 billion) for its shipping and air-cargo businesses, according to data provided by the company.The one-time loss would reflect the decrease of value in the company’s shipping assets as a direct result of the global overcapacity, which led to a drop in freight rates, Bloomberg reports.Additionally, the company said that it is considering a change in its dividend payout, which would be revealed by the end of October.In July 2016, NYK Line lowered its full year outlook as it posted a first quarter loss of JPY 12.78 billion, compared to a profit of JPY 43.06 billion seen in the same period a year earlier.The Japanese giant is not the only shipping line severely hit by the current depression in the shipping industry, as its compatriot shipping firms Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha (K Line) and Mitsui O.S.K. Lines (MOL) also lowered their full year outlook amid the prolonged depression in the shipping market.Earlier this year, the devastating conditions claimed their first victim when the South Korean container carrier Hanjin Shipping decided to file for court receivership.The ailing firm opted for the move after its creditors, led by KDB, said they would not provide additional financial support to Hanjin starting from September 4.World Maritime News Stafflast_img read more
