Topal was a surprise bronze medallist at the 2015 Games, producing an 11.99m national junior record jump to finish third behind Rellie Kaputin who won gold and Milika Tuivanuavou of Fiji who had just completed her four year US University program.NMHU is in the city of Las Vegas and their athletes compete in Division 2 of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCCA) program. “Annie’s performance attracted the attention of a number of colleges, but there were a number of requirements she needed to fulfil including the SAT test and NCAA registration before any arrangements could be finalised,” said Athletics PNG Secretary, Philip Rehder.Meanwhile, the East New Britain Provincial Government has also pledged to support talented athletes from the province to pursue a career in track and field while studying in the USA.This follows a decision made last September endorsing a submission by Athletics PNG (APNG) Inc. for some assistance for its athletes studying overseas. A joint announcement about this program will shortly be made by APNG Inc and the Office of the Provincial Administrator.

The psychological advantage ahead of the final-round match lies with Wydad as they overcame Zesco more comfortably than the 2-0 scoreline suggests in Morocco two months ago.Walid El Karty nodded Wydad into an early lead and a second half own-goal by Kenyan David Owino sealed the fate of under-the-cosh Zesco.Coached by former Real Madrid manager and Liverpool striker John Toshack, Wydad top the table with 10 points despite a mid-group crisis.After defeating ASEC Mimosas in the Ivory Coast and Zesco, the 2011 Champions League runners-up took only one point of a possible six off struggling giants Al Ahly of Egypt.And they battled to translate dominance over ASEC at home into goals until Congo Brazzaville-born Fabrice Ondama scored in the final minute to deliver a crucial 2-1 win.That result, and Zesco holding record eight-time African champions Ahly 2-2 away, eliminated the Egyptian and Ivorian clubs from the title contest.Zesco have exceeded expectations by reaching the semi-finals although coach George Lwandamina remains worried about concentration lapses in defence.“Our defence has a tendency to fall asleep after we score and this allows opponents back into matches,” said Lwandamina, who doubles as the caretaker national coach.What the Zambian outfit do have in abundance, though, is consistent goal scorers with Idris Mbombo from the Democratic RepubIic of Congo scoring five in this Champions League campaign.Clatous Chama and Kenyan Jesse Were have notched four each and John Ching’andu three, and Zesco struck six goals in two previous home group games.Failing to reach the semi-finals cost Ahly coach and former Tottenham Hotspur manager Martin Jol his job amid safety concerns.Netherlands-born Jol was threatened on social media and furious supporters of the Cairo Red Devils reportedly reacted to the African exit by trying to disrupt a training session.Assistant coach Ossama Orabi has taken charge for the meaningless midweek match against 1998 champions ASEC at Stade Robert Champroux in Abidjan.Another fixture where only pride is at stake involves already-eliminated Enyimba of Nigeria and Sundowns in Port Harcourt. Zamalek have a bye as Entente Setif of Algeria were disqualified.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Zesco United players line up before a past matchJOHANNESBURG, South Africa, Aug 22 – Wydad Casablanca of Morocco need a point at Zesco United of Zambia on Wednesday to win Group A and set up a CAF Champions League semi-final showdown with Zamalek of Egypt.But if the 1992 African champions lose at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Ndola, they will drop to second spot and face Group B winners Mamelodi Sundowns of South Africa instead.

Related Posts Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Tags:#Google#news#web Google News has begun experimenting with a section titled “most shared” on its home page, apparently tracking activity on outside social networks including Twitter. When people say that some amount of social technology is going to infiltrate every nook and cranny of the internet, they aren’t kidding.The new feature has been given subtle placement on the page; it appears just below the Fast Flip section, near the bottom right hand corner of the page – where probably a mere several million people will see it each day. Its appearance was first reported by independent watch dog blog Google Operating System. At first blush, the new feature has some up sides and some down sides. Google started including Twitter, MySpace and a number of smaller social networks in its “real time updates” section early in 2010. The company is believed to have paid millions of dollars for access to the Twitter firehose, which dominates the real time search section of the site.We’ve emailed Google for confirmation that this in fact where it’s looking for sharing activity. The Good News and the Bad NewsWhy not count the links in that real time stream and use those analytics to do interesting things in Google News? It appears to be a wise move, though it’s nice to see the new feature displayed low on the page.That’s because these kinds of “most popular” widgets run a serious risk of building a self-fulfilling, self-referential, lowest common denominator news cycle that mirrors the old ways and worst parts of broadcast news. Not to mention the risk that the algorithms be effectively gamed by sites pumped up by drooling half-human spam-bot marketing zombie accounts on social networks. Some kind of algorithm must be in place, too, to separate ostensible news coverage from craven link-bait, in the case of sites that publish both. It would probably be safe to assume that there’s some hybrid human eye being kept on what gets into this “most shared” section, much as tech news aggregator Techmeme has humans augmenting machines.On the other hand, such a feature could help highlight another perspective on important news being passed around. It might catch some things you might not want to miss. Individual human editors, pure algorithms and social popularity contests all highlight different content at different times. If I’m looking for general interest news, though, I’d like even that analyzed from multiple perspectives. That’s why Newsy is one of my favorite mainstream news services.Day in and day out, I’ll take a long-tail of smart, topical content that enriches my life and mind, whether millions of other people appreciate it or not. But if I was on the front page of Google News and saw the “most shared” widget? Yeah, I’d check it. marshall kirkpatrick A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market
