0Shares0000NAIROBI, Kenya, November 26- Eritrea have been locked out of the forthcoming CECAFA Senior Challenge Cup and Namibia included in the 12-nation tournament in their stead.Addressing the media in Nairobi on Wednesday, CECAFA secretary general, Nicholas Musonye revealed that the Eritreans had pulled out of the annual event citing lack of funds as he released the draw for the competition that runs from November 25 to December 10 in Tanzania. Namibia who sealed their qualification for the 2014 World Cup group stages with an 8-0 aggregate hammering of Djibouti in the pre-qualifiers are therefore, in the same competition with their Group F rivals Kenya and Malawi. Nigeria is the other country in the pool where the winner will feature at the Brazil 2014 Mundial.According to the CECAFA draw, Namibia will once again lock horns with Djibouti with defending champions and host Tanzania and Rwanda completing Group A.Kenyan and Malawi are grouped in Group C alongside Sudan who will feature 2012 Nations Cup and Ethiopia after organisers decided not to include Namibia in that pool to take the slot of Eritrea in a bid not to replicate the World Cup seeding.“We will also have our Cecafa elections on November 24,” Musonye who will be hoping to retain his secretary general’s seat announced.While lack of finances have been given as the reason behind the late withdrawal of the Eritreans, authorities in the country must be cognisant to the disappearance of their players to seek political asylum in the last two CECAFA events, the Club Challenge in Nairobi and the Senior Challenge Cup held again in Tanzania last year.The opening match will see Burundi take on Somalia before Uganda take on Zanzibar later on. Kenya will acquaint themselves early with World Cup rivals Malawi in the first match in Group C on November 28. The Flames and Namibia’s Cobs are the invited teams to the East African tournament.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)
From the team that won 2-1 against Nzoia Sugar on Saturday, AFC Leopards head coach Stewart Hall brought in youngster Marcelus Ingotse for the injured Paul Mungai Kiongera while his opposite number Benjamin Nyangweso made two changes from the team that won against Kariobangi Sharks.He brought in Boniface Onyango for Churchill Muloma who started on the bench while Oliver Rutto started his first match this year coming in for the absent Omar Mbongi.Ulinzi shot stopper James Saruni was the busier of the two keepers in the opening half with Ingwe looking more organized than the visitors who prior to the fixture had beaten them six times in the eight previous meetings.Ulinzi Stars’ Stephen Ocholla against AFC Leopards’ Duncan Otieno.PHOTO/Raymond MakhayaInside the opening minute, Leopards were gifted with their first opportunity when Rutto miscued a clearance header with the ball landing on Leopards striker Gilbert Fiamenyo. However, the burly Ghanaian could not get a shot on target.Leopards were mainly exploiting Rutto’s left side as well as planting the ball behind the defense with an aim of using Ingotse and Allan Katterega’s pace to create chances.In the 23rd minute, Saruni came off to claim one such lofted ball but was adjudged to have handled it outside the box. However, from a promising freekick position, Robinson Kamura struck the ball straight onto the wall.Ulinzi did not seem to have tactically grasped their hold on the match with a huge gap in midfield which AFC maximized on with a three man personnel of Bernard Mang’oli, Whyvonne Isuza and Dancun Otieno.Ulinzi had the first real chance in the 34th minute when Evans Amwoka broke the offside trap from a counter on the right, but his decision of trying to cut back the ball other than going for goal himself proved wrong as Salim Abdallah cut off the ball.On the other end, Ingwe had a similar chance from a counter, but Ulinzi had Geoffrey Kokoyo to thank with the experienced 34 year old poking the ball off Fiamenyo’s feet for a corner after the Ghanaian had gone round Saruni.AFC Leopards fan at the Ulinzi v AFC Leopards match at the Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos.PHOTO/Raymond MakhayaAt the start of the second half, both sides made changes. AFC Leopards brought off Ingotsi for Andrew Tololwa while Ulinzi brought off Stephen Ochollah for youngster Cliff Kasuti.However, the two sides resorted to playing high balls which never dangerous as both sets of defenses are good in defending high balls. AFC had a chance on the hour mark when Mang’oli’s freekick was easily collected by Saruni.Late on, substitute Kasuti had a chance with a header from the far post off a John Kago cross, but Ian Otieno spread himself well to thwart the effort.On the other end, Fiamenyo’s thunderous shot was saved by Saruni with Rutto being at hand to clear the mess.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Ulinzi Stars’ Bonface Onyango against AFC Leopards striker Gilbert Fiamenyo.PHOTO/Raymond MakhayaMACHAKOS, Kenya, Apr 5 – AFC Leopards went top of the Kenyan Premier League standings after picking a point in a 0-0 draw with Ulinzi Stars in a catch up fixture at the Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos on Wednesday afternoon.It wasn’t the best of matches by the two sides, probably after both came off tough fixtures over the weekend with the feet seemingly still fatigued.

A figure for administrative and clerical employees was not given. Tom Libby, an automotive analyst with JD Power and Associates, said Wednesday that high-level employees will be more difficult to immediately replace, though the loss of experienced workers shouldn’t produce any long-term problems. “They’ll fill the open positions internally or bring in outsiders,” Libby said. “If you have very high-level people leaving, those are areas of expertise that have to be filled and that takes a while. But in the long run, I don’t think there’s any negative ramifications.” More than 200 people have been hired or are considering offers and nearly 27,000 resumes have been received by the company since the relocation announcement, Nissan said. “As we prepare to move to our new headquarters, we are continuing our intensive recruitment activities through job fairs, a new Web site and following up with people who already have expressed interest in working for Nissan,” said Jim Morton, senior vice president, administration and finance. NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Nissan Motor Co. said less than half the employees at its North American headquarters in California plan to move when the automaker relocates to Tennessee. About 42 percent of the nearly 1,300 employees at the headquarters in Gardena, Calif., will relocate. Most of the positions are to move by early summer to temporary offices in Nashville while a new building is constructed in the suburb of Franklin, the company said in a statement Tuesday. Nissan had extended by a month the deadline for employees to decide whether to relocate, and Nissan CEO Carlos Ghosn said two weeks ago that getting half of the current workers to move “would be the best possible result.” The headquarters employees include management, marketing, advertising, sales and distribution and dealership development for North America. Construction of the company’s headquarters will begin in June and is expected to be ready for use by 2008.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Second-half goals from Marcus Antonsson and Chris Wood gave Leeds a 2-0 victory over Yorkshire rivals Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough. Antonsson headed the opener shortly after the hour mark and Wood’s late goal clinched Garry Monk’s first league win as Leeds manager.But Wednesday striker Fernando Forestieri, back in the team after controversially refusing to play at Norwich last week amid transfer speculation, will rue two missed chances in quick succession in the first half.Forestieri and Steven Fletcher linked up well in the Wednesday attack as the sides exchanged blows in the early stages. Forestieri’s driven shot from outside the area bounced wide within 10 minutes and he then missed two one-on-one chances within a minute to put the Owls ahead early on.He was first put through by a lucky deflection off Leeds defender Charlie Taylor, but rolled his shot just wide of the right-hand upright.Moments later, Forestieri went clear again but Leeds captain Liam Cooper was able to get back and head his effort off the line after the forward had rounded goalkeeper Rob Green.Leeds had to absorb plenty of first-half pressure but the pace of Hadi Sacko, one of Monk’s 10 new signings this summer, was a thorn in Wednesday’s side all afternoon on the break. His cross was chested down by Wood late on in the half, but the strike was blocked well in the box by full-back Jack Hunt.Moments later, a curled Almen Abdi free-kick from 25 yards out bounced off the top of the Leeds bar with Green flailing, but the sides went into the break level.Wednesday began the second half well through the skilful link-up play of Barry Bannan and Forestieri, who was now in a left-wing role after Gary Hooper replaced Abdi.However, it was Leeds who provided the game’s first goal in the 63rd minute, again catching Wednesday on the break. Sacko carried the ball forward and into the box before a clever one-two with right-back Luke Ayling allowed him to float a cross to new signing Antonsson, who headed into an empty net.The goal was exactly what was needed to open the game up, as Bannan took hold of the ball and encouraged his side to take the game to the visitors.The Owls’ high pressure would be their downfall, however, as gaps were left in behind for another fantastic breakaway run down the right by Sacko five minutes from time. The ball made its way to the lively ex-Oxford man Kemar Roofe on the left and he crossed low to Wood, who slotted home his second goal in as many games. 1 Leeds boss Garry Monk
Matt Toomua was the star man on his first start at fly-half for Leicester Tigers, scoring 21 points to see off the challenge of Harlequins at Welford Road.The Australian dictated the tempo of the game and kept his side firmly in control with his kicking prowess, before spotting a gap on the 22 to burst away for the hosts’ first try.Toomua’s cross-field kick fell for Graham Kitchener to go over before Adam Thomstone intercepted and scored.Harlequins replied through Alofa Alofa, Luke Wallace and Charlie Matthews.The scoreline was harsh on Quins, who led 13-9 after an hour, but fell apart in the final quarter of the match to suffer a serious dent to their play-off ambitions.George North sent Wales coach Warren Gatland a timely reminder by sparking a superb second-half fightback to earn Northampton a 25-17 win against London Irish.Irish threatened to claim only their second Aviva Premiership win of the season at Franklin’s Gardens when two opportunistic tries from Saracens-bound wing Alex Lewington put them 14-3 up at half-time.But the Saints stormed back early in the second period, scoring three times in the 10 minutes after half-time to increase Irish’s relegation fears.North, who is yet to start in the NatWest 6 Nations this season, Rob Horne and Mike Haywood all dotted down for the home side, and Piers Francis made the game safe with a drop goal.Gloucester’s Aviva Premiership play-off hopes suffered a blow as Worcester sent them packing 25-15 at Sixways.Worcester, despite going into battle with only relegation favourites London Irish below them in the table, never looked back following tries during an impressive opening 20 minutes from scrum-half Jonny Arr, fly-half Jamie Shillcock and Wales international wing Josh Adams.Full-back Chris Pennell added two conversions and two penalties, leaving even a losing bonus point beyond Gloucester’s reach.Centre Matt Scott and wing Henry Trinder claimed touchdowns for the visitors, while centre Billy Twelvetrees added a penalty and fly-half Billy Burns converted Scott’s touchdown, but they could have few complaints about the result.Worcester’s win took them further clear of Irish and completed another giant stride towards Premiership safety, but Gloucester’s top-four ambitions appear inconclusive on this latest evidence.

Max Aarons had plenty of time to pick out Buendia, who had no problem sweeping home. Having just been fouled himself, the midfielder launched into a wild challenge on substitute Scowen as he prepared to clear, catching him in the process and, after consulting with his linesman, referee Scott Duncan brandished a red card – Norwich’s first in the league this season.Even with one less man Farke’s side still looked the better side and they made it 4-0 on 85 minutes when Pukki got his second.The Finland international latched on to a long ball from the back from Christoph Zimmermann and held off his marker before coolly firing past Lumley for goal number 27 of a triumphant campaign.

The survivor of a tragic car crash in Donegal that left two young people dead “cried hard” when she revisited the scene of the accident for the first time.Young mum Rachel Elliott was left unable to walk after the horror crash in Bundoran in August last year.Two of her friends who were in the car, Conall McAleer, 20, and Shiva Devine, 20 died in the collision. Rachel, 25, survived the crash but lost the use of her legs, and sustained serious injuries to her brain, back and pelvis.Brothers Conor Brennan, aged 26, and Tristan Brennan, aged 19, were also in the car and suffered serious but non-life threatening injuries.Now Rachel’s mother Susan has revealed that the 25-year-old revisited the scene of the incident for the first time last week.Susan wrote on social media: “She went down to where the accident happened (on Tuesday). “That’s the first time. Then she went to see her friends’ graves.“Lord, she cried hard. Not really coping.“Poor pet has a lot to contend with but hopefully there will be a breakthrough and in time she will walk again.“It may take time but you have to be positive.”Survivor of tragic Donegal crash revisits scene for first time was last modified: January 7th, 2019 by StephenShare 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:bundorancrashRachel Elliottsurvivor
Share This!Before Galaxy’s Edge entered its reservation-only period nearly a month ago, there were all sorts of predictions of massive crowds, catastrophic traffic jams, brawls over the last drops of blue milk, and more. Thankfully, the reservation period went smoothly, with those who had secured reservations having a relaxing time in an exciting new area and surprisingly low crowds at Disneyland in general. The thought was that perhaps the concerns about crowds had actually kept locals away, plus the limited number of reservations available.As the end of the reservation period neared and the time of “it’s open” approached for everyone, those concerns started to creep back into discussions, with fears seemingly “proven” by the challenges experienced at Universal Orlando with the opening of Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure. And so, with that in mind, intrepid TouringPlans reporter Guy Selga kissed his loved ones goodbye to brave the first day of Galaxy’s Edge in the free-for-all days.At 6:45 a.m., it began to be clear that maybe the touching memorial that we had painstakingly written up for Guy might have been a bit premature. Certainly there were people waiting to get in at the gates of Disneyland, but it was a far cry from the doom and gloom predictions. In fact, one hour before park opening, crowds looked fairly typical for a summer day at Disneyland.Once inside, guests wanting to head fo Galaxy’s Edge were directed to the left side of the hub.Starting at 7:30 a.m., guests were escorted from the hub to the Critter Country entrance to Galaxy’s Edge.Because reservations for Oga’s Cantina and Savi’s Workshop are made through the Disneyland app, the big rush in the morning is to Smugglers Run.Galaxy’s Edge reached capacity and switched over to boarding groups around 8:30 a.m. The process for joining a boarding group went smoothly. If you had the Disneyland app, walking through the steps to join a boarding group was simple. Once your boarding group was approved for entry, you received a push notification on your phone to let you know that you had a 2-hour window to head over to Galaxy’s Edge.Disney also had posted signs around the parks so that you could check and see what groups were boarding, especially useful if you went with a paper boarding group ticket.For most people, the process was smooth. There were a few reports of people not receiving their push notifications (for instance, if they had disabled push notifications for the Disneyland app or had their phone set to Do Not Disturb), and so later in the day, Disney made the option available to manually check boarding group times, with some technical snags at first that were later resolved.Overall, how was the experience inside Galaxy’s Edge? Very similar to the reservation-only experience in some ways, although Smugglers Run was the hot ticket for the morning. Throughout the morning, the posted wait time for Smugglers Run fluctuated wildly. Within a five-minute period around 9:00 a.m., the posted wait time went from 110 minutes to 65 minutes to 80 minutes to 140 minutes and then back to 110. An extended queue area was set up that went backstage during the peak morning rush. Once the morning rush was over, however, wait times ranged from 30-80 minutes throughout the day. (You can see the wait time data for yesterday here.) Around 5:00 p.m., crowds were moderate enough that the land was open to all, without the need for boarding groups. Crowds remained low throughout the evening.Some merchandise had sold out during the reservation-only period and has not yet been replenished. Some items like kyber crystals, sabacc cards, the highly collectible metal gift cards, and some specialty lightsabers were not available today. It is expected that all of these items will be replenished as time goes by.If you wanted to grab a bite to eat at Docking Bay 7, or just wander the shops, today was a wonderful day to explore Batuu. The metal sporks at Docking Bay 7, which had the ability to exert a Jedi mind trick and get what we’d like to believe are otherwise honest people to walk out of the land with them, are no longer available and likely won’t return. Will Galaxy’s Edge continue to stay pleasant for crowd levels with the ability for anyone who has a desire to visit to be able to? Only time will tell. It is possible that people specifically avoided today and that this weekend will see a surge of visitors. It is also possible that if crowds stay relatively soft, Disney could consider lifting some pass blockouts. Cast Member blockouts have already been lifted for the next couple of weeks, with the exception of July 4.What does this experience mean for Walt Disney World when Galaxy’s Edge opens in August? I can’t imagine that Disney is letting this experience go to waste when it comes to planning the Walt Disney World experience. That said, Walt Disney World is very different from Disneyland, and the experience at one may be radically different from the experience at the other. As of yet, Walt Disney World has been somewhat quiet about the specifics regarding how logistics will work for their version of Galaxy’s Edge.Did you visit Galaxy’s Edge for general opening day? What was your experience like? Let us know in the comments. If you didn’t have the Disneyland app, or didn’t wish to use it, paper boarding group reservations were available.
