Marcelo thrilled with hunger shown by Gor players

first_img“The players have shown hunger and I am happy with the group that I have. I think they are good players who can help us move forward. We pass the ball better and keep possession.”“There are few areas we will improve but I believe we will be a different outfit when the league resumes,” Marcelo stated.He was speaking after leading his side to a 1-0 win over fellow Premier League club Posta Rangers at the Camp Toyoyo Grounds on Saturday.Substitute Edmond Murai scored the lone goal in the second half after rounding off keeper Patrick Matasi in a match where K’Ogalo missed their international players who are on duty with the national football team Harambee Stars.“We needed a tough friendly before the league resume to gauge our fitness. It was impressive to see the players give a good fight despite it being a build-up match,” Marcelo added.Gor are winless in their first five matches and sit in unfamiliar 12th position on four points from four draws.K’Ogalo travel to newcomers Kakamega Homeboyz next week Saturday in Mumias.Posta head coach Zedekiah ‘Zico’ Otieno was impressed with the output his side gave in the friendly pointing out he wanted to check out the physical fitness of his players.“It was impressive because after going for almost two weekends without a match, we needed to play a high tempo game to keep us in check because we have a very tough game coming up on Wednesday. The players have shown they are still in it and hopefully, we keep the consistency,” Otieno said.The recently promoted side faces Sony Sugar on Wednesday at the Ruartaka complex and will be hoping to bounce back from their loss to Kakamega Homeboyz in their last league match.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Gor Mahia head coach Jose Marcelo (left) with assistant coach Tom Ogweno (right) during Saturday’s friendly against Posta Rangers.PHOTO/Timothy Olobulu.NAIROBI, March 27- Gor Mahia head coach Jose Marcelo Ferreira says his charges have grasped the new philosophy as he eyes a dream start with the champions when the SportPesa Premier League resumes next weekend.The former Brazilian right-back, nick-named Ze Maria has been taking the team through training for the past two-weeks since taking over from Scotsman Frank Nuttall and is confident to take the 2015 unbeaten champions back to winning ways.last_img read more

Man distraught over children surrenders after hours long barricade in Northridge

first_img During the traffic stop, Rosales went back inside the camper, shouted to the officers that he was armed with a weapon and that he was going to shoot himself, Reid said. He pointed a laser at them and drove off, leading officers throughout the Valley at a steady pace, Reid said, eventually stopping near Parthenia Street and Delco Avenue in Northridge. The area is near the home of an ex-in law, where his children were staying with a relative, Curreri said. Curreri said the relative and children were safely taken into police custody during the standoff, and the area was blocked off to traffic. Curreri said Rosales was “upset and depressed about the family situation — not being able to see his children.” SWAT officers broke a window of the camper and provided Rosales with a telephone in an effort to coax him into surrendering. However, he initially refused to come out, even after tear gas was introduced into the vehicle, Curreri said. During the standoff, police vehicles were parked around the motor home, preventing it from moving, and some evacuations were ordered.

Dropbox Responds To Snowden Privacy Criticisms

first_imgCloud Hosting for WordPress: Why Everyone is Mo… Tags:#cloud security#cloud storage#data privacy#Drew Houston#Dropbox#Edward Snowden Related Posts Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden has been anything but subtle about his aversion toward Dropbox. Now the storage service’s CEO had a few words to say in reply.Snowden has repeatedly told consumers that if they want to protect their privacy, they ought to avoid Dropbox which he has called a “targeted, wannabe PRISM partner” that is “very hostile to privacy.” Snowden recommended a competitor called SpiderOak. See also: Dropbox For Business Gives Control Freaks What They WantOn Wednesday, Dropbox CEO Drew Houston used his platform at the Dublin Web Summit to indirectly respond to Snowden’s remarks, emphasizing a priority on user experience.“If you offer zero knowledge encryption we understand the motivation for that, but there are downsides to it,” he said. “Third-party tools are offered to do that, but of course that [affects making] all my stuff searchable and indexed and rendered well in previews. People have different tradeoffs.”In other words, Dropbox offers limited privacy in exchange for seamless integration between desktop and mobile versions, Dropbox and third party apps, and other features.When asked at the summit whether or not Snowden’s remarks had affected Dropbox usage, Houston noted that 1.2 billion users continue to use the service. “It’s never fun when people throw rocks,” he says. “But how many [negative] articles were there about Facebook and Zuck?

Portugal joins world’s hot spots for cave biodiversity

first_imgA decade ago, cave biology was a subject few Portuguese ever talked about. Now, the bizarre creatures that inhabit the dark underworld are becoming a source of national pride, says Ana Sofia P. S. Reboleira, a biologist with the Natural History Museum of Denmark at the University of Copenhagen. That’s in large part thanks to her efforts, which have resulted in a dramatic increase in the number of Portuguese caves surveyed for biological life. She and others have identified so many novel species that call Portugal’s caves home that this tiny Mediterranean country would qualify as a biodiversity hot spot for cave organisms—if the field hadn’t recently changed its criteria. Still, in recognition of the nation’s growing interest in the underworld, Portugal recently built a lab and visitor center over one of its more notable caves.A Portuguese native, Reboleira traces her love of caves to a trip to a commercial cavern with her parents at age 6. At 14, she took up caving as a hobby. While studying biology in college, she realized that she could blend her passion for deep dark places with her love of animals by becoming a cave biologist. At about the same time, David Culver, a cave expert at American University in Washington, D.C., surveyed the world’s cave literature. With the help of colleagues, he then came up with the first list of cave biodiversity hot spots—those with at least 20 organisms specialized for subterranean life, according to the criteria they settled on. (Caves are much less diverse than most surface ecosystems, where a biodiversity hot spot is defined by the presence of hundreds of species crowded into an area.) With further work, Culver and other cave biologists determined there existed a “ridge” of subterranean biodiversity that extended from the Spanish-French border through Slovenia and other places in the Balkans. At that time, Portugal didn’t rank high when it came to cave biodiversity, but Reboleira thought her country could do better—almost no one there had worked on cave organisms since the early 1960s. So for her graduate studies, she extensively surveyed organisms in Portuguese caves, and for a decade recruited volunteers and other researchers to her cause. In 2014, the Portuguese government opened a “Troglobiário,” a subterranean laboratory and visitor center built over Algar do Pena, a cave unearthed in a quarry in 1985 in central Portugal. Already about 3500 visitors a year have the chance to see cave animals and learn about the limestone formations, called karst, that form such caves.  Sign up for our daily newsletterGet more great content like this delivered right to you!Country *AfghanistanAland IslandsAlbaniaAlgeriaAndorraAngolaAnguillaAntarcticaAntigua and BarbudaArgentinaArmeniaArubaAustraliaAustriaAzerbaijanBahamasBahrainBangladeshBarbadosBelarusBelgiumBelizeBeninBermudaBhutanBolivia, Plurinational State ofBonaire, Sint Eustatius and SabaBosnia and HerzegovinaBotswanaBouvet IslandBrazilBritish Indian Ocean TerritoryBrunei DarussalamBulgariaBurkina FasoBurundiCambodiaCameroonCanadaCape VerdeCayman IslandsCentral African RepublicChadChileChinaChristmas IslandCocos (Keeling) IslandsColombiaComorosCongoCongo, The Democratic Republic of theCook IslandsCosta RicaCote D’IvoireCroatiaCubaCuraçaoCyprusCzech RepublicDenmarkDjiboutiDominicaDominican RepublicEcuadorEgyptEl SalvadorEquatorial GuineaEritreaEstoniaEthiopiaFalkland Islands (Malvinas)Faroe IslandsFijiFinlandFranceFrench GuianaFrench PolynesiaFrench Southern TerritoriesGabonGambiaGeorgiaGermanyGhanaGibraltarGreeceGreenlandGrenadaGuadeloupeGuatemalaGuernseyGuineaGuinea-BissauGuyanaHaitiHeard Island and Mcdonald IslandsHoly See (Vatican City State)HondurasHong KongHungaryIcelandIndiaIndonesiaIran, Islamic Republic ofIraqIrelandIsle of ManIsraelItalyJamaicaJapanJerseyJordanKazakhstanKenyaKiribatiKorea, Democratic People’s Republic ofKorea, Republic ofKuwaitKyrgyzstanLao People’s Democratic RepublicLatviaLebanonLesothoLiberiaLibyan Arab JamahiriyaLiechtensteinLithuaniaLuxembourgMacaoMacedonia, The Former Yugoslav Republic ofMadagascarMalawiMalaysiaMaldivesMaliMaltaMartiniqueMauritaniaMauritiusMayotteMexicoMoldova, Republic ofMonacoMongoliaMontenegroMontserratMoroccoMozambiqueMyanmarNamibiaNauruNepalNetherlandsNew CaledoniaNew ZealandNicaraguaNigerNigeriaNiueNorfolk IslandNorwayOmanPakistanPalestinianPanamaPapua New GuineaParaguayPeruPhilippinesPitcairnPolandPortugalQatarReunionRomaniaRussian FederationRWANDASaint Barthélemy Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da CunhaSaint Kitts and NevisSaint LuciaSaint Martin (French part)Saint Pierre and MiquelonSaint Vincent and the GrenadinesSamoaSan MarinoSao Tome and PrincipeSaudi ArabiaSenegalSerbiaSeychellesSierra LeoneSingaporeSint Maarten (Dutch part)SlovakiaSloveniaSolomon IslandsSomaliaSouth AfricaSouth Georgia and the South Sandwich IslandsSouth SudanSpainSri LankaSudanSurinameSvalbard and Jan MayenSwazilandSwedenSwitzerlandSyrian Arab RepublicTaiwanTajikistanTanzania, United Republic ofThailandTimor-LesteTogoTokelauTongaTrinidad and TobagoTunisiaTurkeyTurkmenistanTurks and Caicos IslandsTuvaluUgandaUkraineUnited Arab EmiratesUnited KingdomUnited StatesUruguayUzbekistanVanuatuVenezuela, Bolivarian Republic ofVietnamVirgin Islands, BritishWallis and FutunaWestern SaharaYemenZambiaZimbabweI also wish to receive emails from AAAS/Science and Science advertisers, including information on products, services and special offers which may include but are not limited to news, careers information & upcoming events.Required fields are included by an asterisk(*)Last week, at the 2016 International Conference on Subterranean Biology meeting in Fayetteville, Arkansas, Reboleira proudly provided an update on Portugal’s subterranean fauna. She noted a cave in southern Portugal that would on its own fit Culver’s definition of a cave biodiversity hot spot—it contains 22 cave-limited species, some occurring nowhere else in the world. One unique species is a quarter-sized pseudoscorpion (see image, above) that is an order of magnitude larger than typical pseudoscorpions. Another, a flattened invertebrate called an isopod, is the largest terrestrial isopod known in Europe. Caves elsewhere around the country were also revealing new organisms, Reboleira reported. “The more we look, the more we describe,” she says.That’s good, because earning the cave “hot spot” label has become harder, Culver says. Since coming up with the 20 cave organisms standard—one that now scores of caves meet —he and his colleagues now require at least 25 terrestrial cave-specific species in a location or at least the same number of aquatic species. And Portugal has new countries competing for subterranean biology honors. At the meeting, researchers from places such as Oman, the Philippines, and China described rapid progress identifying new cave species in their respective countries. Until 10 years ago, researchers had described just 21 obligate cave organisms from all of Southeast Asia, says Stefano Taiti, a cave biologist from the Institute of Ecosystem Study in Florence, Italy. Now, dozens of cave fish are known from China alone, he notes. And at the meeting, Chinese researchers showed an equally impressive array of newly described cave beetles. Time for Reboleira to head back into Portugal’s caverns.last_img read more

If I win in Rio 2016, I will become legend, says Usain Bolt

first_imgJamaican Usain Bolt, the fastest man on Earth, seeks to win once again at Rio de Janeiro 2016 Olympic Games and become “a legend”, he said.Bolt, the world and Olympic multi-champion, said this at a press conference on Wednesday night during his visit to Mexico City for a commercial campaign, Xinhua news agency reported.”Defending my Olympic title motivates me. I do not know what will happen with me if I lose a competition. I focus a lot, I get excited and the results depend on my hard work and my will to win,” he said.”If I go to Rio and win, I will feel very good and become a legend. And if people ask me, I will say that I am a legend,” Bolt added.He also said next week he will begin training for Rio 2016. Bolt said he is taking a rest after winning at the 2015 World Championships in Beijing, where he arrived after recovering from an injury.”It was definitely one of my biggest challenges because it was a short and tough season and I had to work hard. I was very focused, I ran well and achieve it,” he said.The Jamaican star also talked about soccer. He said he is fan of England’s Manchester United and of Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo, player of Spain’s Real Madrid.last_img read more
