Jagielka: Moyes helped me progress

first_img Press Association Jagielka’s presence at St George’s Park this week as part of an England squad gearing up for friendlies against Republic of Ireland and Brazil underlines the progress he has made since he moved to Merseyside six years ago. “I have had two managers in my career,” he said. “Neil Warnock gave me a chance to play in the game, David Moyes gave me a chance to play at a higher level, coached me to a better level and helped my game progress.” Phil Jagielka believes he repaid former manager David Moyes for the faith shown in him at Everton.center_img Jagielka feels loyalty is a two-way procedure, though, and in that sense he is happy with his contribution under Moyes. He added: “Over the last six years he has taken me from possibly being a Premier League defender to playing some games for England. But I would also like to think I put myself on the line for him as well.” Moyes felt confident enough in Jagielka to name him Everton’s captain when Phil Neville was slowly easing out of the first-team picture towards the end of the season. That in itself seems strange as Moyes also felt Jagielka sometimes lacked the self-belief required to get the most from his talent. “Obviously David saw me every day,” said Jagielka. “If that was his view it can’t be far off. “I have never thought of myself as being particularly shy or lacking self-confidence but I can understand what he means. “It is not in my character to be super confident. Once you are like that there is only one way to go. That is the way I am. I probably do play better when I am a bit more arrogant. But that is not really the person I am and I don’t think it will be the person I turn into.” last_img read more

Executive Mansion Reporters Want Finance Minister to: ‘Talk to the President for Us’

first_imgAs the term of President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf elapses, the group of journalists covering the President, under the banner “Executive Mansion Press Team” on February 20, 2017 cried on the Minister of Finance Boima Kamara to talk on their behalf to get some benefit from the president, before she leaves office.In what appeared like a press conference with the Minister, later turned into private discussion with Minister Boima at the Jackie’s Guest House in Ganta, the journalists complained that they have covered the president a lot, but yet to get the require benefits to boast of tomorrow.Samukai Dukuly of Power TV said for too long we have been covering the president, but we are yet to benefit anything tangible as reporters assigned to the president.“As young men like us, well respected personalities in the government, we want you to intervene and talk to the President so she can think about us,” he said.Varney Kamara of New Democrat Newspaper said, “We have been covering the president for the past 12 years, but we have nothing to boast of as reporters covering Executive Mansion.”They talked about not being allowed or being given the opportunity to travel with the president on some of her trips abroad. The rest of the reporters at the conference, buttressed their colleagues’ statements, calling for Minister Kamara to intervene to get just benefit from their respective duties as reporters assigned to cover the president.In response, Minister Kamara told them to forward their requests to the Minister of State, Hon. Sylvester Grisgbe, who is the proper authority that could address their concerns.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

SA shines at World Press Photo

first_img17 February 2006Five South African photographers have walked away with top honours at this year’s World Press Photo awards, the most prestigious annual international competition in press photography.The five – Pieter Hugo, Shayne Robinson, Sydney Seshibedi, Joao Silva and Halden Krog – were up against 4 448 professional photographers from 122 countries, with a total of 83 044 images entered. Judging took place in Amsterdam in January and February 2006, with prizes awarded in 10 categories to 63 photographers of 25 nationalities.Hugo won first place in the portraits category, as did Robinson for arts and entertainment. Seshibedi and Silva both came second, in the sports action and contemporary issues categories respectively, and Krog won third place for nature photography.Founded in 1955, World Press Photo is an independent non-profit organisation based in the Netherlands. Its aim is to encourage high professional standards in photojournalism and to promote a free and unrestricted exchange of information.Pieter Hugo (Corbis)First prize, portrait singles: Mallam Gahadima Ahamadu with the hyena Jamis, Abuja, NigeriaPieter Hugo’s winning photo was taken during his 10-day journey with a group of travelling Nigerian minstrels and their entourage of animals: three hyenas, two pythons and four monkeys. The somewhat menacing image – produced for photo agency Corbis – shows the minstrel Mallam Gahadima Ahamadu with a muzzled hyena on a road in Abuja, Nigeria.Born in Johannesburg in 1976, Hugo’s work focuses on social issues with an emphasis on developing countries in Africa and elsewhere. He has worked for many print publications, including Adbusters, Colors, Dazed & Confused, the New Yorker and the London Sunday Times, producing visual essays on issues ranging from tuberculosis in Malawi to slavery in Sudan, slums in Brazil to old age communities in South Africa.In 2002/3 he participated in a residency at Fabrica, Benetton’s Research and Communications Centre in Italy. His work has been exhibited widely, including solo exhibitions at Cape Town’s Michael Stevenson Contemporary, the Museum of Modern Art in Rome, and Lisbon’s Fabrica Features. Pieter Hugo websiteCorbis websiteShayne Robinson (PhotoWire Africa, Globe and Mail) First prize, arts and entertainment singles: Ballet class, Alexandra TownshipA relative newcomer to professional photography, Shayne Robinson nonetheless managed to win first place in the single photo category for arts and entertainment. The image, of a ballet class in Johannesburg’s impoverished Alexandra township, was produced for PhotoWire Africa and published in Canada’s Globe and Mail.Previously the editor of online IT publication ICT World, Robinson decided to try his hand at professional photography after reading The Bang Bang Club, the story of a group of veteran photographers who chronicled the violent dying days of apartheid – which is co-authored by Joao Silva, another World Press 2006 winner.“With no formal qualifications or any photographic knowledge,” Robinson says, “I managed to somehow find my way into the South African Press Association.” He credits his success to the mentoring he received from experienced South African photographers Kim Ludbrook, Halden Krog – yet another World Press winner – and Jon Hrusa.Shayne Robinson websitePhotoWire Africa websiteGlobe and Mail websiteSydney Seshibedi (Sunday Times)Second prize, sports action singles: Sidney Maluleke fights with Sello Hawong in JohannesburgYoung Sunday Times photographer Sydney Seshibedi, Premier Soccer League photographer of the year for 2004, won second prize in the single sports action category for a remarkable boxing photo. The image shows South African featherweight boxer Sidney Maluleke, left, taking a blow from super featherweight Sello Hanong Hawong at Nasrec in Johannesburg in September 2005.Seshibedi is a prolific photographer, with his work for the Sunday Times taking him from Mozambique, to photograph former President Joaquim Chissano, to war-torn Sudan to document life in refugee camps.Sunday Times websiteJoao Silva (New York Times) Second prize, contemporary issues singles:Malawi prisonOne of South Africa’s most respected photographers, Joao Silva was a member of the elite Bang Bang Club, a group of what were essentially war photographers who – at great personal risk – documented township violence during the last days of apartheid in the late 1980s.Although the membership of this club sometimes changed, there were four consistent members: Silva, Greg Marinovich, Kevin Carter and Ken Oosterbroek. Two of them lost their lives in events directly or indirectly related to their work. Oosterbroek was killed in bloody fighting in Thokoza township just days before South Africa’s first democratic election, and Carter committed suicide months after winning the Pulitzer Prize for a haunting Sudan famine picture.Born in Portugal in 1966, Silva is a photographer contracted to the New York Times and lives in Johannesburg. He has travelled widely in Africa, the Balkans, Central Asia, Russia and the Middle East. His photograph of grossly overcrowded conditions in a Malawi prison won him second place for single photos of contemporary issues in this year’s World Press.He has produced two books: The Bang-Bang Club with Greg Marinovich, and In the Company of God, which portrays Iraqi Shi’a Muslims in a period of occupation and transition.Joao Silva websiteNew York Times websiteHalden Krog (Beeld)Third prize, nature singles: Stranded fishing boat after tsunami, Banda Aceh, Indonesia, January 2005The chief photographer at Afrikaans daily newspaper Beeld, Halden Krog has twice claimed the MTN Fujifilm Photographer of the Year award. His remarkable image of a fishing boat lying incongruously on green croplands earned him third prize in the nature category at the World Press awards.“Krog’s success has a lot to do with his artistic eye for composition, his technical advancement and people skills,” says Dawid Roux, Beeld’s picture editor. “His intolerance for mediocrity can sometimes drive his colleagues insane, but by the same token, they have the utmost respect for it.”Krog has also mentored another World Press winner, Shayne Robinson.Beeld websiteSee all the winners on the World Press Photo website.SouthAfrica.info reporterlast_img read more
