Captain Nikita Miller says his Jamaica Scorpions will be giving it their all as they try to eke out an unlikely win against the Windward Islands Volcanoes in their WICB-Digicel Regional Four-day Championship clash at Sabina Park.Jamaica Scorpion are 92 for two in their second innings, for an overall lead of 38 runs heading into today’s fourth and final day.This follows the Scorpions’ first-innings total of 151, which span across the first two days due to bad weather. The Windwards, in their first turn at bat, made 205.Playing in his first season as captain of the team, Miller outlined that the hope is to post a total in the region of 250 runs by midway the post-lunch session.This, he said, would give the team a chance of “having a go” at the visitors, who, in light of their first innings and based on their lower-end-of-the-points-table history, has the propensity to falter.”Come tomorrow, we have to plan our innings as we will be trying to make a game of it,” Miller stated.ANYTHING POSSIBLE”At some time after lunch tomorrow, the aim is to declare, if we don’t get bowled out, at a score of between 230 and 250.”This would then give us a chance to bowl at them, and if we get a bowling start like the one we had in the first innings, where we had them, at one stage 30 for three and 97 for five, anything is possible.”The Scorpions, who like the Volcanoes, are seeking to bounce back from opening-round loses last week, had their debutant fast bowlers Reynard Leveridge and Oshane Thomas and rookie pace all-rounder Derval Green to thank for their position.Bowling at impressive speeds and good lengths, Leveridge and 19-year-old Thomas, had several of the Windwards batsmen ducking, taking evasive action or settling primarily for defensive shots.Thomas finished with two for 26 off seven overs, and Leveridge, one for 34 off 13.2.Green, in the meanwhile, playing in his second first-class match, utilised the largely overcast conditions to swing the ball in and out on his way to claim two for 37.There were also two wickets each for Miller and leg-spinner Damion Jacobs. All-rounder Kyle Mayers and wicketkeeper Sunil Ambris, with 61, top-scored for the Volcanoes.’I thought the two debutants bowled really well,” Miller assessed.”This was especially so for Oshane, who got a call on the first morning of the match and, for him to come in and make such a contribution, was really good.”Meanwhile, Mayers, another recent West Indies ‘A’ recruit, believes the match is in the balance.”I think the game could go both ways,” he said.”I think it is for us to come tomorrow and apply the pressure and keep it tight when we are not getting wickets, so that if we have to chase, we can chase a gettable total.”SCOREBOARDSCORPIONS 1st Innings 151VOLCANOES 1st Innings(overnight one without loss)D Smith c wkp Walton b Thomas 0T Theophile c wkp Walton b Green 3J Robinson c wkp Walton b Green 19K Hodge c Thomas b Leveridge 26+S Ambris c Green b Jacobs 61*L Sebastien c wkp Walton b Jacobs 1K Mayers run out 61S Shillingford lbw b Miller 0M Matthew c wkp Walton b Miller 5D Johnson c Campbell b Thomas 23L Edward not out 0Extras (b1, lb2, w1, nb2) 6TOTAL (all out, 64.2 overs) 205Fall of wickets: 1-1, 2-21, 3-30, 4-96, 5-97, 6-148, 7-149, 8-175,9-204, 10-205.Bowling: Miller 18-3-45-2, Thomas 7-1-26-2, Leveridge 13.2-3-34-1, Green 10-2-37-2, Jacobs 14-4-43-2, Campbell 2-0-17-0.SCORPIONS 2nd InningsJ Campbell not out 43T Griffith lbw b Mayers 22D Thomas b Mayers 9J Blackwood not out 16Extras (lb1, nb1) 2TOTAL (2 wkts, 29 overs) 92Fall of wickets: 1-53, 2-75.Bowling: Shillingford 9-0-37-0, Johnson 4-0-14-0, Matthew 6-1-17-0, Mayers 9-2-22-2, Edwards 1-0-1-0.Position: Scorpions lead by 38 runs.

The Green Machine: Conor Greene helped Dungloe to a crucial victory over Termon in the Donegal SFC. Pic by Mary Bonner.Dungloe continued their unbeaten run this season by recording an excellent win over Termon at Rosses Park in the Donegal SFC earlier this afternoon. Dungloe won the Division Two title and went the entire league campaign unbeaten, they took that form with them into the championship and earned a crucial win against Termon.Conor Greene was outstanding for the hosts and he was ably assisted by Adrian Sweeney who was as lethal as ever. Dungloe opened the scoring through Adrian Sweeney and Greene, but the visitors posted three points in-a-row to take the lead.Two points from Daire McDaid and one from Christy Connaghan edged Termon ahead.Dungloe responded through Adam Neely to level up the game and that’s how it stayed until the break.Dungloe upped the tempo in the second-half and really took a stranglehold of the match. With Greene and Sweeney again the chief tormentors for Tony Boyle’s Dungloe side.They edged Dungloe out to lead by six with ten minutes to go.Termon rallied though through the outstanding Daire McDaid for Termon.He scored three points unanswered to bring Termon back to within a score of Dungloe, but Dungloe used their experience to run down the clock and secure the win.It was a tremendous individual display from McDaid who scored seven of Termon’s total of eight points. Next up for Dungloe is a derby match with local rivals Gaoth Dobhair next Sunday in Magheragallon.Termon host Killybegs next weekend in desperate need of a result to keep their Donegal SFC hopes alive.DUNGLOE EARN SUPER CHAMPIONSHIP WIN OVER TERMON was last modified: September 28th, 2014 by Mark ForkerShare 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:Donegal SFCdungloenewsSportTermon

“It would be interesting to see if he actually trained for something like the Dusi exactly what level he could achieve. I would love to see him with somebody like a Martin Dreyer, but he’s still got many, many years to give back to sport in South Africa and we should be looking at him inspiring younger kids, just as Martin Dreyer is doing in the Change A Life programme.” This time around, in Sofia, Parkin is showing no signs of slowing down. He will be taking on swimming, road cycling and mountain biking but, rather disappointingly, even for a man with an Olympic silver medal, he remains largely uncelebrated in South Africa. 12 July 2013 Ambassador PaddlerRiddin believes Parkin could be a top Dusi paddler if he chose to focus on the extremely testing challenge of paddling and portaging. Parkin has been a familiar face at the world’s largest open water swimming event, the Midmar Mile, for many years and twice won the men’s open event in 2000 and 2002. It was at the Midmar Mile that he first made his mark. Riddin, who has also paddled numerous Dusis with Parkin as his partner, added: “I look at how he is putting back into swimming, now coaching, as well as still competing at the Midmar Mile, having completed the feat of being the only person to do 16 Midmar Miles in a weekend, swimming to the start and then swimming the event.” Starting in the second batch of swimmers in the 13-and-under age group, behind all the seeds, he powered through the field and, when the times had been adjusted, he had taken a stunning victory. It was astounding, but Parkin has been doing astounding things all his life. His Olympic silver medal is the most obvious highlight in a career filled with them. ‘An inspiration’ “Terence Parkin, who has been deaf for virtually all his life, has achieved, to me, a hell of a lot more,” Riddin told SAinfo this week. “He also got a silver medal in an able-bodied Olympic Games, and he didn’t get as much credit [for it as he should have received], and I think we should be looking at it and saying he is an inspiration to the whole of South Africa.” Wayne Riddin, the head coach of the South African team at the Sydney Olympics in 2000, where Parkin won silver in the 200 metres breaststroke, said that while he recognises what swimmer Natalie du Toit has achieved as a star of the Paralympic world, Parkin has probably achieved more in his career. Multi-talented Riddin pointed out that last year, 12 years after Parkin medalled at the Sydney Olympics, he took part in the South African Olympic trials, and while Neil Versfeld won a place in the 200 metres breaststroke, Parkin was second in a time comparable to that which he swam in Sydney. Parkin is set to add to his amazing record at the Summer Deaflympics, which take place in Sofia, Bulgaria from 26 July to 4 August. While Phelps finished his Olympic career with 18 gold medals and 22 medals in total, the South African star will go to Germany having already won 29 Deaflympics gold medals. In 2005 in Melbourne, his return was an eye-popping Deaflympics record of 12 gold medals and a silver. “Terence is this icon,” Cluer said. “He’s one of the Princess of Monaco’s [former South African Olympic swimmer Charlene Wittstock’s] 14 ambassadors around the world.” He had to do something, Cluer told SAinfo, so he called up Andrew McLean of Cycle Lab, who in turn got together with Willie du Plooy of KTM Bike Industries, and they arranged two state-of-the-art KTM bicycles, for road and mountain biking, for Parkin to use at the Deaflympics. Citing Parkin’s influence in the deaf world, Cluer explained: “He’s such an icon in the deaf community, so much so that last year at our Energiser Night Race in Johannesburg he brought 150 deaf athletes to the event.” That list of ambassadors includes the world’s number one tennis player, Novak Djokovic, former Formula One world champion Jenson Button, five-time Olympic swimmer Dara Torres, and two-time overall World Cup champion skier Aksel Lund Svindal. Parkin has always been a star in swimming, but he has not restricted himself to the pool. At the 2009 Deaflympics, he contested the road race and picked up a bronze medal. That followed his achievement of winning road race gold at the 2006 World Deaf Cycling Championships and silver in the cross-country mountain biking event. Nowadays, Parkin regularly swims all eight miles annually at the Midmar Mile, raising money for charities associated with deafness. Now living in Johannesburg, he joins over half the total field of the event, about 9 000 swimmers, to faithfully make the journey down to the dam in the Kwazulu-Natal Midlands. “It was my first experience of him as a deaf swimmer in an able-bodied team, and I remember that he was that fun guy, always with a smile on his face, and he’s still that same guy today. He’s still got that face where he comes in and he’s a happy guy in the swimming world, and it’s probably a comfort zone for him.” Michael Phelps has won more medals than any other Olympic athlete. South Africa’s Terence Parkin occupies a similar place in the world of Deaflympics – only he has won more medals, including more golds, than the US legend, and his career is still going strong. Before anyone thinks the Deaflympics are not a big deal, the last time they were held, in Taiwan in 2009, 4 000 athletes were in attendance. To compare that with the Paralympics, at London in 2012 there were about 4 237 athletes that took part. There was a time, when he was competing on the World Cup swimming circuit, that Parkin held every single Deaflympic record in short course swimming. World record holder Yet, through it all, Parkin has retained his humility, as the long-time Midmar Mile organiser Wayne Riddin recalled: “I go back to when he travelled to Cairo with the SA junior team as an age group swimmer for the first time. “I’m a lot older and it has been a privilege that Terence has wanted to paddle the Dusi with me. He sits in the back of the canoe and is the powerhouse. It’s a pleasure because I realise how strong he is when he sits in the back of the boat,” said Riddin. Max Cluer is a friend of Parkin’s and a cycling commentator who has worked at the Olympics and at numerous top UCI mountain biking international events around the world. He was astonished to discover that Parkin would be attending this year’s Deaflympics with a seven-year old mountain bike. Before Parkin considers further options, however, there is the matter of the Deaflympics. His tally of gold medals stands at 29. Where will it be when this year’s Deaflympics are over? And will the former Olympic silver medallist be welcomed as a hero on his return to South Africa?

A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Related Posts MetroPCS, the 5th largest wireless carrier in the United States, has announced a new pricing structure that requires customers to pay extra to access video services other than YouTube, audio including Pandora or any VOIP service, over their mobile devices. GigaOm’s Ryan Kim says the move raises “the specter of consumers paying more for certain kinds of content and the potential for a fractured Internet experience, where users may not be free to jump easily from one site to another.”This could be a key move in the struggle over network neutrality or tiered pricing by content type.MetroPCS’s estimated 6.6 million customers will be given a range of discounted data options, from $40 through $60 per month. Though the $40 per month plan allows unlimited web page browsing and YouTube viewing, and admittedly comes with no contract required, you’ll need to pay more to access other types of media. As the company explains, “With the $50 and $60 service plans, consumers have more data access service choices to better fit their actual usage of certain streaming audio and video content, real-time Internet gaming, music and video downloads and other media applications.”The prospect of paying $40 per month for mobile data access and only being allowed to view online video or listen to online audio from a selected list of sources is just repugnant though, isn’t it?“What this all means,” Kim writes at GigaOm, “is that users can browse Facebook all day long and could click on any YouTube links to see the video. But if they click on a link to another video service, users can visit the site but won’t be able to view the video. Facebook videos are also likely blocked as are streaming music services such as Pandora. [MetroPCS spokesperson Drew Crowell] said YouTube doesn’t have a special relationship with MetroPCS. It was just one of the most popular multimedia sites among MetroPCS consumers so the carrier decided to allow unlimited access to it.”Does that sound fair to you? I must confess, when Google and Verizon made a joint announcement this Summer about Net Neutrality and excluded wireless from their support of it, I didn’t think it unreasonable. (I was nearly alone in this, too, I think.)I think I may have been wrong. Seeing a wireless network put tiered pricing into play makes me feel pretty ill. For some silly reason, I didn’t think they would really do it. The prospect of paying $40 per month for mobile data access and only being allowed to view online video or listen to online audio from a selected list of sources is just repugnant though, isn’t it?Here’s how GigaOm’s Ryan Kim puts it:These new plans, if they’re allowed to stand, show us what the future of mobile broadband will look like if operators have their way. It could be a frustrating experience for users, recreating a walled garden. It’s not surprising that MetroPCS is trying to push this agenda. Most operators would stand to gain a lot if they can get this type of plan to fly. Eventually, I expect MetroPCS won’t be the only operator looking to lay down new toll layers atop the mobile Internet.Related: British Telecom is working on something very similar, called Content Connect. marshall kirkpatrick 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Tags:#news#web Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic…

The SchÃ¼co windows have great performance specsMarc Rosenbaum, our Passivhaus energy consultant, ran the PHPP software and concluded that we met the Passivhaus standard with the SchÃ¼co windows without further modifications to the building envelope. His analysis showed that the SchÃ¼co windows yielded a total annual heat load of 4,350 BTU/square foot, comfortably below the Passivhaus standard of 4,760 BTU/square foot. (A lower annual heat load is better.) RELATED ARTICLES Pella windows are nicer, but they don’t perform very wellWe found the Pella windows to be superior to SchÃ¼co in all aspects except for performance. Since the Pella specs were not as good as those from SchÃ¼co, we knew it would cost us more money to upgrade other portions of the building envelope if we were to select Pella.We were surprised and dismayed to learn the results from Marc – using the Pella windows in our design yielded a total annual heat load of 7,960 BTU/square foot – well above the Passivhaus standard. The difference is mostly due to Pella’s poorer glazing. The overall R-value of the Pella window is R-4 – only half that of the SchÃ¼co.Regrettably, Pella’s top triple-pane krypton-filled window is inadequate for use in our Passivhaus! The incremental cost of enhancing the building envelope to make up for the low performance of the Pella window approaches that of the cost of the windows themselves.So we will look at two other alternatives. Stay tuned! But after looking closely at the SchÃ¼co windows and reflecting on them, we have decided not to use them. There was no single objection, but rather an accumulation of concerns, mostly subjective, that left us feeling uncomfortable. For example, a week after our meeting, we still have not received additional promised information, including a copy of the warranty.The SchÃ¼co website only lists commercial windows and makes no mention of residential windows, nor does it provide any links to U.S. distributors. We were told that SchÃ¼co divested its residential window business some five years ago, so it was unclear who (SchÃ¼co or the Massachusetts distributor) would honor any product delivery concerns or future warranty issues.There was not a solid heft when we tried opening and closing the heavy triple-pane windows. Perhaps that is due to SchÃ¼co using a thin aluminum reinforcement within the sash and frame rather than heavier gauge shaped steel we have seen in a competitive PVC window manufacturer. [Editor’s note: Roger and Lynn Normand are building a [no-glossary]Passivhaus[/no-glossary] in Maine. This is the fifth article in a series that will follow their project from planning through construction.]When we first began looking at windows for our Passivhaus project, we started with a list of 15 window manufacturers. We whittled the list down to two: SchÃ¼co, which on paper looked like the best European-style window, and Pella, the best North American style window.Our architect, Chris Briley, has further refined the south facade of our house to add more glazing and reduce the roof overhang. Both actions were meant to enhance the net solar heat gain of the house and hopefully get us into compliance with the Passivhaus standard.Image 2 (below) shows what the revised south facade now looks like. The windows are now wider and taller, and the number of venting units is reduced.After visiting both SchÃ¼co and Pella showrooms and doing further research, we have decided … to look at other options.
