Bournemouth’s worst fears confirmed as key man ruled out for six months

first_img Callum Wilson Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson has been ruled out for at least six months.Wilson injured his right knee during Saturday’s 2-1 defeat at Stoke and Eddie Howe admitted after the game that ‘it did not look good’ for the 23-year-old.Now the club’s worst fears have been confirmed after scans showed he suffered a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament.Wilson will have an operation next week before beginning rehabilitation and faces a battle to be fit before the end of the season.It is a huge blow for Cherries boss Howe and the hitman, who scored five goals in his first six Premier League matches and has been tipped for an England call-up.”It’s very disappointing for Callum, after what has been an exceptional start to the season, but I am sure he will come back fitter and stronger,” Howe told afcb.co.uk.“Callum is the type of character who won’t be fazed by such a setback, and I am sure he will turn this experience into a positive in the long run.“As I have said many times before though, this kind of setback offers others the opportunity to step up to the plate, show everybody what they can do and make a real impact at this level.” 1last_img read more

DONEGAL ICE ROAD TREKKERS UPDATE – WE’RE ON OUR WAY WITH THE NORTHERN LIGHTS ABOVE US

first_imgDonegal Ice Road Trekkers are go! Pic Paul DohertyPIX PAUL DOHERTY IN ALASKA: Just setting off now on our journey Southbound. We will be out of coverage for 2 days again.This is an amazing place and we feel very privileged to be here..We spoke to a few Truckers this morning and they are expecting the journey back to be a lot tougher than the way up because of the weather and extra traffic. We are delighted to say that we have successfully travelled from the most northerly point of Ireland to the most northerly point of America!!On Saturday morning we got up at 6am to prepare the jeep for the long journey, we had planned to have it prepared from the day before however with the bags arriving so late we were unable to. After a few hours getting prepared we set off to meet Jon Norton, of Carlile Transport which is the Ice Road Truckers is based on, where he gave us a run down on the Dalton Highway and on CB radio etiquette and we would like to take this opportunity to thank him.After leaving Carlile transport we headed off on the long journey ahead… We initially had a 83 mile drive on the Elliot Highway to the beginning of the Dalton which we could only describe as ‘a real handy road’ in comparison to what we were about to face! As we began driving the Dalton Highway we noticed it clear from snow at the beginning but still very rough gravel which is caused by the wheel chains of the trucks digging into the road, this soon changed and we had a mixture of snow and ice to contend with.The road itself has some very dangerous hills/corners/cliffs along the way but the real danger lays in meeting oncoming Trucks; Before reaching any corner of hill you MUST radio ahead and let the other drivers know we are on the road and visa versa… this took us a while to get used to but the Truckers here are like a big family and all look out for each other and people like us who are known as ‘4 Wheelers’. Driving on up the road we came on the Yukon River which was covered in a 4ft Ice sheet which allowed us to drive over without any major problems, there was a bridge there too but we thought it would be better craic to take the old road! On doing this Paul walked up onto the bridge to Photograph and Video the jeep and while he was up there he was immediately surrounded by Dalton Highway Security and was almost arrested for walking on the bridge but Paul said straight after “I would do it again, that was some picture!”. Overall driving across the Yukon River was an unbelievable experience!Further up the road after a few ‘hairy’ moments we arrived at Coldfoot where we would be staying the night. This was far from the quality hotels we have in Donegal but it did the job for a nights rest and a bite to eat.Up early on Sunday morning we refuel, leave Coldfoot and drive to a small town called ‘Wiseman’, which Denis thinks was named after him! After this we drove on, meeting some very interesting characters along the way, driving by some wonderful scenery. The next big challenge is known as Chandalars Shelf along Mt Snowden which is 5700ft above sea level, this extremely dangerous part of the journey was drove by Leslie who kept his nerve and keep cool throughout. After this we had another big challenge, possibly the biggest challenge of the entire road, was the Atigun Pass… the highest point the road crosses 4800ft and it was basically like driving up and over a mountain. This task took Denis who was driving and Leslie, on the CB, full attention as the constant danger of driving on snow and ice with massive cliffs along the road. Needless to say we stopped at the highest point and had lunch which not only kept us fed but also nearly froze us!!From there on we drove along the Tundra… this we can only describe as being like a snow desert, there was literally nothing but flat land covered in +10ft of snow.. this became very windy and blew the snow off the road and left it with a sheet of pure Ice, stopping on this road was next impossible but the skillful driving of both Denis and Leslie ensured we stayed on the road…. most of the time!Arriving at Prudoe bay for sunset in -30 temperatures and finally getting phone coverage back is great and thanks to everyone who messaged and gave us well wishes on Facebook. Tonight we will be watching the Northern Lights for and getting a good nights sleep before the long and challenging drive back down the road. Wish us luck for the journey Southbound…And don’t forget what this is all about.

Proscovia stars as She Cranes conquer Malawi Queens

first_imgAfrica Netball ChampionshipMonday  ResultsZambia 57-42 BotswanaUganda 66-43 MalawiZimbabwe 56-37 BotswanaZambia 56-46 NamibiaTuesday fixturesZambia vs Zimbabwe 4:00pmMalawi vs Namibia 6:00pmProscovia in action. She helped She Cranes beat Malawi Queens on Monday.NETBALL. Peace Proscovia Drajule’s sporting talent has never been in doubt. With a 6 ft 6 frame the towering Arua-born has always been as dominant in netball as she was in basketball.Now playing for Loughborough Lightning in the elite netball competition in England and Wales Proscovia gained attention in the Western world after Uganda’s eighth placed finish at the 2015 World Cup.Few in Uganda have consequently been able to watch her in action in the ensuing period.On Monday at the Lugogo MTN Arena, she was able to show the progress she has made with a dominant performance as Uganda cleared a major hurdle in their hopes of winning the African Netball Championship.The She Cranes won 66-43 win over Malawi in what was the third straight victory for the hosts.“Peace has improved tremendously because she is posting well and her movement makes it easy to create space. She is very aggressive and seems to have put the troublesome knee problems behind her. I credit the coaches where she has been,” She Cranes coach Vincent Kiwanuka said after the game.He had singled out the Southeastern African country ranked sixth in the world as the biggest threat to his team’s hopes of the title who are seven places behind.Buoyed by Manchester-based Joyce Mvula and Jessica Mazengera, Malawi threatened to upset the form book as they kept the She Cranes within sight. The latter led 13-11 and 27-22 after the first two quarters.They then shifted gears going on a 21-7 run in the third quarter as goal defender Lilian Ajio and goalkeeper Stella Nanfuka stifled the Malawi shooters.At the other end Proscovia was also wreaking havoc as she dominated Alinafe Kamwala. The Malawi goalkeeper lost the battle for good as she was red carded for dissent and repetitive fouling after being given three warnings by the umpire.Proscovia then accelerated to 49 goals before being substituted with Hadija Nakabuye and stellah Oyella adding nine and eight goals respectively.Uganda now need to win their next two games against reigning champions Zimbabwe on Wednesday and Zambia on Thursday to be crowned champions. Currently ranked 13th in the world, the She Cranes are also targeting a place at next year’s Commonwealth Games.The 11 highest-ranked teams in the INF World Rankings (excluding Australia) as at July 1 will qualify.Reigning holders Zimbabwe meanwhile recovered from Sunday’s 55-45 loss to Malawi to defeat Botswana 56-37.Comments Tags: sport toplast_img read more

How to Keep Company Data Safe on Employees’ Personal Devices

first_imgjohn paul titlow Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Tags:#Analysis#biz Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Once upon a time, the only computers people used at work were those paid for, owned and managed by the company and its IT department. One wouldn’t even think of lugging in their home PC to use in the office. Why would they? Even as laptops came into prominence, the few employees that both owned laptops and needed to use them for work purposes had to go through the IT department to have a VPN client and security software installed.Today, things are quite different. As smart phones continue to get faster and cheaper, more and more employees are walking around with tiny, yet very powerful computers in their pockets. And while many businesses give out and administer smart phones for employee use, in most cases, these are personal devices. This presents unique challenges and considerations for company IT departments. As an example, I bought an iPhone for personal use three years ago. I loaded it with news apps, music, personal finance apps and personal notes and have been adding more and more of my own data and applications to it as time goes on. But I also use it for work at my day job. The minute I put in my company’s email server credentials into Mail, I transformed the device into a strictly personal one to one that has access to some pretty sensitive company data. I also keep meeting notes in Google Docs (synced between the desktop, iPhone and now my iPad) and share files with colleagues in Dropbox. If my iPhone were ever stolen or lost, all of that corporate data would suddenly be vulnerable, unless I have the necessary security measures in place. With so many employees accessing corporate data from personal devices, how can IT departments properly manage the security of these devices without being too heavy-handed? This is precisely the question that Forrester seeks to answer in one of their latest reports on mobile security. In it, they examine some of the biggest potential security risks that come with the proliferation of personal devices in the workplace, as well as what companies can do to alleviate those risks. A Few Commonsense Security MeasuresThere are many obvious advantages that come with the portability of these devices, but one of the drawbacks is that they can easily left behind in a cab or stolen. Simple steps like password-protecting phones and enabling remote locking and wiping of the device can go a long way in keeping company data safe. Another issue is malware, especially as Android grows in popularity. Whenever possible and appropriate, anti-malware software should be deployed on any device that accesses company networks or data. Forrester recommends some basic regulations that should be included in any corporate mobile security policy. Among them:The IT department should be allowed to manage any device that has access to company networks and data. This should, of course, be done while still respecting the user’s privacy.The company’s usual Web usage policies should apply to personal devices, as long as they’re being used at work.The company’s IT department should be able to monitor usage while the device is being used on the company’s network or premises. They should also have the freedom to restrict access to corporate data if necessary.If the device is stolen or the employee leaves the company, the IT department should be able to wipe company data from it remotely.For more sensitive industries and government agencies, Forrester recommends far more restrictive measures, such as limiting the applications employees can use to access company data. Does your company have a policy in place to deal with the security of personal devices in the workplace?

What Dissatisfaction Means (Part Two)

first_img(Part One is here)Dissatisfaction is the key to capturing a higher price than your competitors when you are trying to make a competitive displacement. It not only provides the compelling reason to change, it gives you the opportunity to create value that’s worth a higher price.Without dissatisfaction, there is no reason to pay more.Sometimes you are asked to fill out vendor paperwork and your dream client procurement department dictates the price. They believe that you are a commodity and there is no value that you can create that is worth paying more to obtain. But if they are adding suppliers, there is a reason.Sometimes you are told that if you want an opportunity to work with your dream client, you’ll have to match your competitor’s price. There is so much wrong with this! If your dream client feels they need to add (or replace) someone, there is some level of dissatisfaction.In both of the case above, if your dream client isn’t getting what they need, it’s likely that they’re underinvesting in the result they need. Instead of matching the price you need to discover the source of the dissatisfaction and cure it … for a price commensurate with the greater value you create.Dissatisfaction comes with a cost. Sometimes the gap between your dream clients current and future state is hard, easily identifiable costs, like lost sales, waste, missed shipments, down time. It’s usually pretty easy to capture these costs and use them to justify a higher price. Some costs are softer, they’re more difficult to capture, like time and energy. But these costs are no less real. And they can also be used to justify a higher price.Dissatisfaction means a higher price for greater value is possible.QuestionsWhat gap does your dream client need to have to make you worth paying more?If you can’t identify the gap and the greater value you create, why should your dream client pay more?Why is it worth it for your dream client to pay more and acquire the greater value you create?Why do you need to be paid for creating greater value?
