PHOTO/Raymond MakhayaNAIROBI, Kenya, Aug 26 – AFC Leopards head coach Rodolfo Zapata was gracious in defeat after seeing his side lose 2-0 to bitter rivals Gor Mahia on Saturday, in the process seeing K’Ogalo confirm their status as the 2018 Kenyan Premier League champions.A nine-minute stoppage due to crowd trouble did not stop Gor as goals from Boniface Omondi and Bernard Ondiek saw them complete a double over Ingwe having beaten them 2-1 in the first leg. “No excuses. We lost to Gor, they were better than us and we say congratulations and I want to wish them all the best in the International Competitions,” Zapata told Capital Sport after the match.“We played well and the first 30 minutes we were excellent. But we ended up doing some mistakes. We created many scoring opportunities but we couldn’t finish and it was not a good day for us,” the Argentine tactician further added.The loss was AFC’s first in five games and put to end an envious run of four wins on the trot which saw them rise to third in the standings. With bandari winning 1-0 against Nzoia Sugar in Mombasa, AFC’s hopes of clinching second spot were thwarted.AFC Leopards players Brian Marita, Baker Lukooya and Said Tsuma contemplate after their loss to Gor Mahia in the Mashemeji Derby at the Kasarani Stadium on August 25, 2018. PHOTO/Raymond MakhayaSkipper Duncan Otieno was also disappointed losing for a second consecutive time to their arch rivals but maintains they will rise from the disappointment.“its an unfortunate loss because we had prepared to win, but things did not go as planned. We have lost yes, but it’s not the end of life. We will pick ourselves from here and move on to finish the season strongly. They (Gor) were only a point from winning the league and congratulations to them,” the skipper said.He added; “We will go back to the drawing board and look at how our season went and work on the mistakes we had, correct them and focus on having a better season next year.”In the derby, AFC missed up to seven first team players and Otieno said that cost them as they had to patch up in most of the positions.Gor Mahia’s Lawrence Juma chases down AFC Leopards defender Isaac Oduro during the Mashemeji Derby at the Kasarani Stadium on August 25, 2018. PHOTO/Raymond MakhayaCoach Zapata however said that should not be an excuse, noting that they simply couldn’t match up well to Gor’s challenge.“We tried different formations and tried out different tactics but we couldn’t finish the chances we had. I am sorry to the AFC supporters because we lost but we tried. We have to move on from here and make sure we win all the remaining games. We are AFC Leopards, we are a big team and we have to win,” the coach further noted.The team now focuses on pushing for a second spot finish despite falling three points off Bandari.Meanwhile, Zapata has asked for patience as he continues to rebuild the team with a young group of players and added that next season they will be in better shape.“We are playing very good football now but we need to be patient with the process of building the young players,” the coach said.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

first_imgPALM DESERT — Michelle Wie’s pro debut made her look like an amateur Sunday when she was disqualified for taking an improper drop from the bushes in the Samsung World Championship. Annika Sorenstam first blew away the field to win by eight shots, even with a double bogey on the last hole. The 16-year-old Wie no sooner had signed for a 74 to finish fourth — $53,126 — that LPGA Tour officials took her out to the seventh hole to discuss a drop she took the day before. Almost two hours later, she was disqualified for signing an incorrect scorecard. Because Wie dropped the ball closer to the hole — by three inches according to her, by about a foot according to rules officials –she should have added two strokes to her third-round 71. Short, who joined the tour last year as a 40-year-old rookie, raised both arms after the ball dropped into the cup. He forced the playoff by rolling in a 9-foot birdie putt on the final hole of regulation. Furyk, trying for his fourth Las Vegas victory, three-putted No. 18 for a bogey in regulation and gave Short a chance to catch him. Both parred the first extra hole, then Furyk, who has won only one of six playoffs in his tour career, pulled his tee shot into the water on the par-3 17th. Administaff Small Business Classic SPRING, Texas — Mark McNulty won his second Champions Tour title of the year, closing with a 6-under 66 for a one-stroke victory over Gil Morgan. McNulty, the long-time European tour player from Zimbabwe, finished at 16-under 200 on the Augusta Pines course. He birdied two of the last three holes and also had two eagles in the final round. Morgan birdied the final hole for his third consecutive 67. Madrid Open MADRID, Spain — France’s Raphael Jacquelin won his first European tour title by closing with a 2-under 69 for a three-shot victory over 1999 British Open champion Paul Lawrie. Jacquelin came in at 23-under on the Club de Campo course. He opened with three consecutive 64s to take a seven-stroke lead into the final round. Lawrie shot a 64. Permian Basin Charity Classic MIDLAND, Texas — Thirty-one-year-old Kris Cox won his first Nationwide Tour title Sunday by birdieing the final two holes for his second consecutive 4-under 68 and a two-stroke victory over three players. He earned $85,500 to jump from 25th to seventh on the money list with $249,474 with two events left. The final top 21 will earn 2006 PGA Tour cards. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!

I respect that.” Wie hit a 5 wood into a bush Saturday and barely found it. She told her playing partner, Grace Park, she was taking an unplayable lie, dropped away from the bush, chipped to 15 feet and made the par. It was a critical par save, and Wie steadied herself to get within five shots of the lead. “I don’t feel like I cheated,” Wie said Sunday. “I was honest out there. I did what I thought was right. I was pretty confident. If I did it again, I’d still do that. It looked right to me.” Michelin Championship LAS VEGAS — Wes Short Jr. hit his bunker shot within a foot of the pin, then tapped in for a par on the second hole of a playoff with Jim Furyk to win his first PGA Tour title. last_img read more

first_imgBy Bharat Sharma New Delhi, July 30 (PTI) Table tennis star Manika Batra, arguably India’s best athlete at the 2018 Commonwealth Games, is yet to receive the cash reward promised by the Delhi government, more than three months after her historic effort in Gold Coast.The Delhi-based Manika had won a unprecedented four medals at the Games including two gold medals (team and singles), a silver (doubles) and bronze (mixed doubles. As per the existing policy of the Delhi government, a CWG gold medallist gets Rs 14 lakh for gold, Rs 10 lakh for silver and Rs 6 lakh for bronze. Since the amount of the cash prize was a lot lesser than what the athletes from Haryana and Tamil Nadu get, a revised proposal had gone to the Delhi government for approval. A gold medal winner from Haryana receives Rs 1.5 crore and Tamil Nadu government gives Rs 50 lakh for the yellow metal. Dharemender Singh, Deputy Director of Education (Sports) in the Delhi government, confirmed the Manika’s file has been sent to the cabinet for approval. “The file of the specific case you are referring has gone to the cabinet for approval,” Singh told PTI. Sources close to the player revealed that under the revised reward, Manika stands to get Rs 1.7 crore for her four medals (Rs 50 lakh each for gold, Rs 40 for silver and Rs 30 lakh for bronze). At the felicitation ceremony organised by the Table Tennis Federation of India (TTFI) last night, Manika said she is confident of getting her due soon from the Delhi government.advertisement “I don’t know why it has not happened so far but I know it will happen,” said Manika, who is now preparing for the next month’s Asian Games in Indonesia. The central government had promptly felicitated the medal winners 15 days after the Games, held from April 3-15. TTFI secretary M P Singh expressed disappointment at Manika not being given her due by the Delhi government. “I wish it had happened earlier. Most state governments have already felicitated their medal winning athletes. They are the pride of the entire nation,” M P Singh said. In fact, Manika had met Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and his deputy Manish Sisodia in May and they both promised her “full support”. The irony of the entire matter is that double Olympic medallist wrestler Sushil Kumar happens to be OSD Sports in Delhi government. It could not be confirmed that if the champion athlete too is yet to receive his cash reward for winning the gold in Gold Coast. PTI BS KHSKHSlast_img read more

Rabat – Morocco’s refiner of petroleum products La SAMIR issued a profit warning on Wednesday, saying that the fall in oil prices worldwide would hit results despite the 15% increase in local sales and improved margins.“Like other refineries in the world, the strong oil price drop to around $65 from $110 in July will negatively affect the stock’s value in 2014,” the company said in a statement.However, and despite attempts by the Moroccan refiner to reassure shareholders, a sharp decline had been recorded in the company’s share value following the publication of the profit warning. The share price of the La SAMIR at the Casablanca stock exchange fell 10% after the company announced that it anticipates negative results by the end of the 2014 fiscal year, due to the fall of oil prices by almost 40% in six months.69,000 shares were offered for sale at any price and the share moved from 313 Dirhams to 281 Dirhams. read more

Qualcomm Inc is asking courts in China to ban sales of Apple Inc’s latest iPhone models XS and XR after winning a preliminary injunction against older models, the Financial Times reported on Thursday.On Monday, a Chinese court had ordered a sales ban of some older Apple iPhone models for violating two patents of Qualcomm, though intellectual property lawyers said enforcement of the ban was likely still a distant threat.“We plan to use the same patents to file suit against the three new iPhone models,” Jiang Hongyi, a lawyer at Lexfield Law Offices who is representing Qualcomm in its patent suits, told the FT.Apple is considering moving iPhone production out of China if tariffs hit 25%China has banned sales of Apple iPhones 6 through X in Qualcomm patent disputeApple makes risky decision to wait until at least 2020 to release a 5G iPhoneThe case, brought by Qualcomm, is part of a global patent dispute between the two U.S. companies that includes dozens of lawsuits.Apple said on Monday that all of its phone models remained on sale in mainland China and that it had filed a request for reconsideration with the court, the first step in a long appeal process that could end up at China’s Supreme Court.Apple had also said its three models released in September were not part of the case.Qualcomm and Apple did not immediately respond to Reuters’ requests for comment.© Thomson Reuters 2018 read more

The so-called draft outcome document for the High-Level Millennium Review, set to run from 14 to 16 September 2005, was presented to a closed-door Assembly session this afternoon by President Jean Ping of Gabon. It had been drafted following intense consultations among UN Member States in an attempt to incorporate their reactions to proposals for international action on a host of fronts outlined by Secretary-General Kofi Annan in the report “In Larger Freedom,” his agenda for “bold but achievable” UN reforms. That report was released in late March as a five-year update on the UN Millennium Declaration, in which world leaders pledged to build a better and safer planet for the next century. “Member States are ready to take ambitious decisions on all fronts,” Assembly President Ping said at press briefing to preview the document. There was much possibility for consensus, he added. With regard to development, for example, he said there was general will to increase development assistance. In the area of peace and security, Member States were prepared to take collective measures, especially regarding the protection of civilian populations in cases of genocide and other war crimes. He said that member States were also prepared to establish a peace-building Commission to maintain peace, one of the Secretary-General’s structural recommendations. In other areas, there were possibilities for compromises that came close to the recommendations. Member States had agreed, for example that today’s Geneva-based Commission on Human Rights did not function to everyone’s satisfaction, he said. However, many had balked at the establishment of a council-level body to replace it. The current draft instead proposed, the creation of a human-rights organ as a subsidiary of the Assembly, with the possibility of promoting it to becoming a principal organ. The draft outcome document also expresses strong support for the Secretary-General’s strategy to eradicate terrorism in all its forms. The adoption of a general counter-terrorism convention was proposed for no later than the middle of next year. Still, little consensus was reached on the specifics of Security Council reform. Mr. Ping said that the issue had been the most contentious, “awakening great passions and fixed attitudes.” He had asked the parties not to rush things, since intensive consultations would be held starting on the issue beginning on 21 June. In many other areas, however, from poverty reduction to the ilicit trade in small arms in light weapons to the role of the Secretariat and other bodies, the text proposes specific agreements.Reacting to the draft after its release this afternoon, Secretary-General Kofi Annan called it “a valuable guidepost for advancing development, security, and human rights.”“Much is at stake,” he said of the negotiations to come, “and I am confident that when world leaders meet in New York this coming September, they will agree on the most far-ranging and ambitious reforms of the United Nations in its 60-year history.” Video of press briefing [39mins] read more

The National Intelligence Agency has arbitrarily detained Momodou Sabally, head of Gambia’s Radio and Television Services, and Bakary Fatty, one of its reporters, since 8 November with no charges. The country arrested another journalist on 10 November who was freed six days later without charges. Others are also currently being detained incommunicado, including a magistrate, an opposition supporter, and a former Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs, said a press release from OHCHR. Earlier this year, 30 members of Gambia’s main opposition party were sentenced to three-year prison terms after they participated in peaceful protests in April. According to Rupert Colville, spokesperson for OHCHR, incommunicado detention without charge is a violation of the Gambian constitution, which requires detainees to be brought before a court within 72 hours. It also violates the country’s human rights obligations. Gambia’s presidential elections are to be held on 1 December. “In the run up to the presidential elections,” said Mr. Colville, “it is particularly crucial that the rights to freedom of expression, peaceful assembly and association are fully respected.” Moreover, he noted that detaining journalists “is likely to intimidate the medial in general, which is particularly damaging in an electoral context.” OHCHR is calling on the Government of Gambia to release all those who are being detained for simply exercising their rights, and expressed concern over the continued failure of authorities to investigate the deaths of Embrima Solo Krummah, a member of the opposition, and Solo Sandeng, the opposition leader, that occurred while they were held in custody earlier this year. read more
