‘It’s a fantastic feat’ – Barbican target extending four-year unbeaten run, more titles

first_imgCoach of Barbican FC Charles Edwards says his team aims to continue its dominance in the local Women’s Football League. Barbican notched their 11th Jamaica Football Federation (JFF)/Sherwin Williams Women’s League title when they beat Waterhouse 4-2 in the final at Stadium East last Sunday. Tashika Small netted a brace for the champions, scoring in the 13th and 52nd minutes, while Kenesha Reid (11th) and Latoya Duhaney (61st) scored the other goals. Waterhouse’s national Under-20 player, Jessica Johnson, scored in the 68th and 90th minutes. LEAGUE TITLE It was also Barbican’s eighth consecutive league title. The east St Andrew club has won 24 trophies in women’s football and seven Sherwin Williams Colourscape knockout titles, plus six mid-season trophies. That has made them the most successful club in women’s football locally. Barbican had also beaten Waterhouse 4-1 in the KO final a week earlier. “We have not lost a game since 2011, so that is a record we would like to strengthen as long as possible,” Edwards disclosed. “It is a fantastic feat in winning so many titles and the girls want to win to add more, so they are motivated and certainly looking forward to next year,” the long-serving Barbican coach added. Barbican FC will be handed the trophy, medals, and $400,000 at the awards ceremony scheduled for Thursday at the JFF’s offices in New Kingston.last_img read more

This after he claimed that someone from Magnolia disrespected him after the Hotshots won the crown at Ynares Center in Antipolo.ADVERTISEMENT Harris used the disrespect as fuel to help his team win two straight titles. He was also named Finals MVP both times—keeping him too busy to sign up with the Aces in 2010.“But it’s OK, don’t worry about it,” Harris said of the latest incident. “It’s part of the game [and] they’re excited. But it’s something I’ll never forget and it’s great fuel for next year if they (Aces) will have me [again].”Right now, he feels for his Alaska teammates.“It’s heartbreaking, especially with them,” he said. “But the team and the franchise are definitely making a step in the right direction.”And Harris wants to be there when the Aces finally step on Promised Land again.ADVERTISEMENT No.13 lucky for Orlando Bloom Japeth Aguilar embraces role, gets rewarded with Finals MVP plum After winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folk Gretchen Barretto’s daughter Dominique graduates magna cum laude from California college “They chased me for eight years [to get me here], so it’s my turn to chase them [Alaska management] for a few months now [to take me back],” Harris said after telling reporters what happened after the game.“They mocked us, it was just lack of respect,” said Harris, who didn’t go into mentioning the specific person behind the taunt. “[It was] total disrespect of character for a person to be like that, especially for someone of their age and respect in the league.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSJapeth Aguilar wins 1st PBA Finals MVP award for GinebraSPORTSGolden State Warriors sign Lee to multiyear contract, bring back ChrissThe series ended 4-2 after a 102-86 Magnolia win on Wednesday, though the final tally doesn’t really give an idea how close the series was.And coming so close, Harris said, that gave him the “fuel” to come back and do something he did in Puerto Rico—where something very similar happened while he suited up for Leones de Ponce.

SaveTNet Cyber Safety reaching global audiences through PUBLIC FIGURE film

first_imgJohannesburg, SA: SaveTNet Cyber Safety NPC is sharing its message on an international stage through the recently premiered Public Figure film, creating awareness for responsible digital citizenship. Public Figure (2019) is a documentary-film that investigates the psychological effects of everyday social media use while exploring how influencers deal with the fame, money, hate, and obsession that comes with it.Rianette Leibowitz, Cyber Safety Change Agent and SaveTNet CEO, stars in the film alongside co-producer and South African public figure, Bonang Matheba, as well as other influencers from around the globe including New York comedian and Instagram star, Sebastian Tribbe, as well as American actor, director and producer, Denzel Washington.SaveTNet held a private screening of Public Figure for partners and stakeholders at the Nelson Mandela Foundation in Houghton, where the 21st-century skill of digital citizenship was probed.  An engaging panel discussion was held where panellists Brian Corso, director and producer of Public Figure, Sebastian Tribbe and Leibowitz shared their views on the collaborations that made this film possible, the influence public figures have through social media, how cybersafety risks need to be managed and how industry can add value to navigate the issue of responsible digital citizenship more positively.“It is time for companies to play an active role and to consider cybersafety as a corporate social investment area of focus, supporting SaveTNet initiatives in order to influence communities positively,” says Leibowitz. “It is a privilege to share the same stage with some of the world’s greatest influencers to raise the awareness of responsible digital citizenship and inform more people that SaveTNet is here to help victims of cybercrime.”As stated in her acceptance speech as winner of the Inspiration and Influence Award at the Global Social Awards 2019 recently held in Prague, Bonang Matheba called on influencers to use their platforms to influence and inspire in a positive way, making sure they light people’s lives and use their social platforms to talk about things that are important around them, in their country.Host partner, Brand South Africa, supports Leibowitz as a #PlayYourPart Ambassador using SaveTNet to drive their movement to inspire, empower and celebrate active citizenship in South Africa. “The Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR) is a reality in our communities and we need to take responsibility in ensuring everyone is aware of cyber risks. As this has an impact on our people, our brands and our country,” says Brand South Africa’s Acting Chief Executive Officer, Ms Thulisile Manzini.SaveTNet Cyber Safety offers a network of specialists for anyone who has been affected by cybercrime or related issue.  “While we help cybercrime victims for free daily, we are encouraging experts (forensic analysts, psychologists, legal advisors) to collaborate with SaveTNet to ensure that we continue to be the safety net for anyone who is in trouble,” concludes Leibowitz.last_img read more

NCGA offers opportunity to grow leadership skills

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest The National Corn Growers Association invites farmers to become a part of the change they desire by actively honing their leadership skills through the NCGA Leadership Academy, part of Syngenta’s Leadership at Its Best Program.  Growers must be nominated by their state corn association for either program.  Interested members should contact their state associations now for further information and get completed applications in to state offices by the end of May.“Since it began in 1986, Leadership at Its Best has trained strong, confident volunteers who have helped shape the industry through their subsequent work at the state and national level,” said Wesley Spurlock, NCGA president .  “Having met so many farmers who feel similarly, I know that the desire to give back to their peers motivates an incredible number of farmers to look for service opportunities. NCGA depends upon this grassroots leadership, and I can personally attest that the time and effort dedicated are repaid in full through the incredible relationships built with like-minded individuals.”Open to all NCGA membership, Leadership at Its Best provides training to interested volunteers of all skill levels.  The first session, held in August in Minneapolis, Minn., addresses personal communications skills, public speaking and association management.  The second session, which will be held in January of 2018, addresses public policy issues, working with the Hill and parliamentary procedure.  Through this program, participants build the skill set needed to become a more confident public speaker with a solid background in the procedures and processes used by NCGA and many state organizations.For more than three decades, NCGA, state corn associations and, most importantly, the U.S. corn industry, have benefited tremendously from the Syngenta co-sponsored Leadership at Its Best Program.  More than nearly 600 growers have gained invaluable knowledge and skills in media, communications, association management and public policy over the lifetime of the program.Those interested should contact their state corn organization, which will submit nominees for the program.

It can be an entire lifestyle choice that allows you to focus deeply on what matters most while setting everything else aside. Chris and Anthony both agree that “The state of our attention dictates the state of our lives.” Adding value, creating, and facilitating change all start with productivity, and this interview with Chris can help you get a jump start on making effective changes in the way you operate. Listen now!Use this strategy to determine what tasks and work add the most value to your lifeOn this episode, Anthony asks Chris about his Eisenhower Matrix, an identification system that breaks down tasks into 4 main categories: things that are productive, things that are core and essential to your work, those that are attractive to you, and those that are unattractive. The challenge lies in “value judgments,” and discerning if the tasks that take up so much of your time are actually productive in the truest sense of the word.In order to make these determinations, start by writing out all of the tasks you’re responsible for in a given period of time (weekly, monthly, quarterly, etc.). Then, identify which top 3 tasks add the most value to your workplace and allow you to create the most. Everything else falls into a subcategory of distraction, and from there you can create systems to help you avoid distractions when it matters most.Use THIS strategy to determine what tasks add the most #value to your life and work! Developed by #productivity expert @Chris_Bailey of @ALOProductivity, it’s sure to help you streamline your work. Hear all about it on this ep of #InTheArea with @iannarino.Click To TweetThe difference between hyperfocus, scatter focus, and why both are importantChris tells Anthony that people often revert to focusing on what’s urgent, latest, and loudest if given the chance. To change this pattern of attention, Chris has defined two main areas of focus: hyperfocus and scatter focus. The former is comprised of sections of time (often 90 minutes) that are wholly dedicated to deep, creative work and thought. Scatter focus, however, is the time when you allow your mind to freely wander. Considering people think about their futures and longterm goals 14 times more often when they’re not focused on one particular project, it’s easy to see how both strategies complement one another and result in an overall productivity improvement.Learn how to tame distractions so you can devote deliberate attention to your workWhether you’re spending time on hyperfocused or scatter focus projects, another critical piece to productivity improvement is limiting distractions. Constant emails, tweets, and notifications pull your attention away from the task at hand and prevent you from working optimally.
