‘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


first_imgNEIL LENNON WELCOMES JIM MCGUINNESS TO PARKHEADDONEGAL manager Jim McGuinness says he is very happy to combine his consultancy role at Celtic with managing Donegal next year.“There will be no impact in terms of the training last year compared to this year. There will be no drop-off in terms of my attendance at training and the input to the team,” said Jim.There had been fears that he would have to choose between the two roles, but that has been dismissed by both McGuinness and the county board. And he has received the full backing from Donegal’s players.Said Jim: “We have been on a great journey for the past two years. I think the world of them (the players). It would have been very difficult to walk away.“I’m thankful to Celtic for giving me the opportunity to combine the roles.“They have been very fair to me in terms of my role with Donegal and participation in all the training sessions. That flexibility made the decision a lot easier.” And friends have described as “nonsense” reports in the national media that the schedule would be hectic.“He can be at Carrickfin in half an hour and then the flight to Glasgow is 45 minutes,” said one close friend. JIM: CELTIC ROLE WILL HAVE NO IMPACT ON DONEGAL was last modified: November 10th, 2012 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:JIM: CELTIC ROLE WILL HAVE NO IMPACT ON DONEGALlast_img read more

Target takes aim at Amazon Prime Day with Deal Days summer sale

first_img Read Google Home Hub review Now playing: Watch this: Recently updated to include digital-photo-frame capabilities, the Lenovo Smart Clock brings Google Assistant goodness to your nightstand. It’s a little smaller than the Amazon Echo Show 5, but also a full $30 less (and tied with Prime Day pricing) during this Best Buy Labor Day sale. $999 Read the Rylo camera preview $999 $59 at eBay Comments Boost Mobile $299 at Amazon See it You can get another 5% off your purchase using a Target REDcard.On Monday, Amazon said its Prime Day 2019 sale will start on July 15 just after midnight Pacific Time and run for 48 hours, its longest sale ever after last year’s 36 hours of deals. And if you’re sick of hearing about it all on social media, there are ways to make it disappear from your feeds.First published at 4:25 a.m. PT.Updated at 4:55 a.m. PT: Adds more detail. Best laptops for college students: We’ve got an affordable laptop for every student. Best live TV streaming services: Ditch your cable company but keep the live channels and DVR. $261 at Daily Steals via Google Express Though not technically a Labor Day sale, it’s happening during Labor Day sale season — and it’s too good not to share. Nationwide Distributors, via Google Express, has just about the best AirPods deal we’ve seen (when you apply promo code ZBEDWZ at checkout). This is for the second-gen AirPods with the wireless charging case. Can’t imagine these will last long at this price, so if you’re interested, act fast. Sarah Tew/CNET Read the AirPods review 1:43 $6 at Tidal The problem with most entry-level laptops: They come with mechanical hard drives. That makes for a mighty slow Windows experience. This Lenovo model features a 128GB solid-state drive, so it should be pretty quick to boot and load software, even with its basic processor. Plus, it has a DVD-burner! That’s not something you see in many modern laptops, especially at this price. $155 at Google Express DJI Osmo Action camera: $261 (save $89) HP Laptop 15t Value: $520 (save $780) Sprint Tidal 3-month family subscription: $5.99 (save $54) What’s cooler: A snapshot of a firework exploding in front of you, or full 360-degree video of all the fireworks and all the reactions to seeing them?

And for an extra $50, you can get the bundle that includes the waterproof housing.This deal runs through Sept. 3; it usually costs $500. 7 An Echo Dot makes a fine match for any Fire edition TV, because you can use the latter to say things like, “Alexa, turn on the TV.” Right now, the 24-inch Insignia Fire TV Edition starts at just $100, while the 32-inch Toshiba Fire TV Editions is on sale for $130. Just add any Fire TV Edition to your cart, then add a third-gen Echo Dot, and presto: The latter is free. $90 at Daily Steals via Google Express Sarah Tew/CNET Read DJI Osmo Action preview $60 at Best Buy CNET may get a commission from retail offers. Rylo 5.8K 360 Video Camera: $250 (save $250) Amazon Turo is kind of like Uber meets Airbnb: You borrow someone’s car, but you do all the driving. I’ve used it many times and found it a great alternative to traditional car-rental services — in part because you get to choose exactly the vehicle you want (not just, say, “midsize”) and in part because you can often do pickup and dropoff right outside baggage claim.Between now and Sept. 1, the first 300 people to check out can get $30 off any Turo rental with promo code LDW30. Spotify and most other streaming services rely on compressed audio, which robs the listener of full fidelity. Enter Tidal, the only “major” service that delivers lossless audio — meaning at least on par with CD quality, if not better. Want to see (er, hear) the difference for yourself? Grab this excellent extended trial while you can. It’s just $6 for three months, and it’s good for up to six listeners.

Wait — no, I’m not. As much as I respect the original intent of the holiday (which became official back in 1894), to most of us, it’s just a bonus day off — one that’s blissfully tacked onto a weekend. So, yeah, stores; go ahead, run your sales. I’m listening. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Labor Day doesn’t bring out bargains to compete with the likes of Black Friday (which will be here before you know it), but there are definitely some sales worth your time.For example:We’ve rounded up the best Labor Day mattress deals.We’ve also gathered the best Labor Day laptop deals at Best Buy.The 2019 Vizio P Series Quantum is back under $999.Be sure to check out Amazon’s roughly three dozen Labor Day deals on TVs and audio.

IBM launches Industrys first Cybersecurity Operations Center on Wheels for ondemand cybersecurity

first_img“Having a mobile facility that allows us to bring realistic cyberattack preparation and rehearsal to a larger, global audience will be a game changer in our mission to improve incident response efforts for organizations around the world.”-Caleb Barlow, vice president of Threat Intelligence at IBM Security Yesterday (On 15th October), IBM Security announced the industry’s first mobile Security Operations Center- ‘The IBM X-Force Command Cyber Tactical Operations Center’ (C-TOC). This mobile command center hosted at the back of a semi truck will travel around the U.S and Europe for cybersecurity training, preparedness, and response operations. The aim of this project is to provide an on-demand cybersecurity support, while building cybersecurity awareness and skills with professionals, students and consumers. Cybercriminals are getting smarter by the day and cyber crimes are becoming sophisticated by the hour. It is necessary for organizations to plan and rehearse their response to potential security breaches in advance. According to the 2018 Cost of a Data Breach Study, companies that respond to incidents effectively and remediate the event within 30 days can save over $1 million on the total cost of a data breach. Taking this into consideration, the C-TOC has the potential to provide immediate onsite support for clients at times when their cybersecurity needs may arise. The mobile vehicle is modeled after Tactical Operations Centers used by the military and incident command posts used by first responders. It comes with a gesture-controlled cybersecurity “watch floor,” data center and conference facilities. It has self-sustaining power, satellite and cellular communications, which will provide a sterile and resilient network for investigation, response and serve as a platform for cybersecurity training. Source: IBM Source: IBM Here are some of the key takeaways that individuals can benefit from, from this mobile Security Operations center: #1 Focus on Response Training and Preparedness The C-TOC will simulate real world scenarios to depict how hackers operate- to help companies train their teams to respond to attacks. The training will cover key strategies to protect business and its resources from cyberattacks. #2 Onsite Cybersecurity Support The C-TOC is mobile and can be deployed as an on-demand Security Operation Center. It aims to provide a realistic cybersecurity experience in the industry while visiting local universities and industries to build interest in cybersecurity careers and to address other cybersecurity concerns. #3 Cyber Best Practices Laboratory The C-TOC training includes real world examples based on experiences with customers in the Cambridge Cyber Range. Attack scenarios will be designed for teams to participate in. The challenges are designed keeping in mind various pointers like: working as a team to mitigate attacks, thinking as a hacker, hands- on experience with a malicious toolset and much more #4 Supplementary Cybersecurity Operations The IBM team also aims to spread awareness on the cybersecurity workforce shortage that is anticipated soon. With an expected shortfall of nearly 2 million cybersecurity professionals by 2022, it is necessary to educate the masses about careers in security as well as help upskill current professionals in cybersecurity. This is one of the many initiatives taken by IBM to bring about awareness about the importance of mitigating cyber attacks in time. Back in 2016, IBM invested $200 million in new incident response facilities, services and software, which included the industry’s first Cyber Range for the commercial sector. By real world simulation of cyber attacks and training individuals to come up with advanced defense strategies, the SOC aims to get a realistic cyberattack preparation and rehearsal to a larger, global audience.
