Gor’s Kahata leads kits for Africa visits to Ruiru and Dandora

first_img0Shares0000The initiative launched three years ago encourages football players and fans to donate their old kit to sports-mad communities across Africa.NAIROBI, Kenya, May 21 – Gor Mahia and Harambee Stars creative midfielder Francis Kahata led Kits for Africa initiative at the Ruiru stadium, distributing football wear donated by SportPesa’s partner clubs in Europe to his homebase.Kahata, who was raised in Ruiru, lauded the initiative adding that support for training gear will go a long way in boosting the morale of budding footballers who benefit from these donations. “I appreciate Kits for Africa administrators for sharing the donations in Ruiru. I remember playing with no boots and sometime bare-chested as I was growing up here. This is a good way to motivate the young talents and I hope they will work hard in return,” said Kahata, who was recently named to the Kenyan National Football team for AFCON.The Kits for Africa donations were distributed to 30 teams from Ruiru, 20 from Thika and 10 from Dandora.The initiative launched three years ago encourages football players and fans to donate their old kit to sports-mad communities across Africa.“Football in the neighborhood is faced by a lot of challenges. Some players give up mainly because they lack proper gear and opt to do other things instead,” added Posta Rangers player Simon Mbugua who also grew up in the same neighbourhood as Kahata.Kahata used the event to drum up support for his club Gor Mahia ahead of Sunday’s Mashemeji Derby. He called on the Ruiru football fans to show up in large numbers to the match which will be held at the Moi International Sports Centre, Kasarani from 4.15pm.Earlier in the day, Coach William Muluya of Kariobangi Sharks helped distribute the Kits for Africa donations in Dandora. He said the initiative is a good way of nurtuting football talent from the early stages within the local neighborhoods and would help keep the youngsters focused.0Shares0000(Visited 5 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Audi, colleges team to reduce CO2 emissions

first_imgAudiStreets: Audi and Berkeley’s California Partners for Advanced Transit and Highways – PATH – are working to determine the feasibility of gathering and sharing real-time information about traffic on freeways and surface streets, as well as the status of relevant public transit routes. Environmentally friendly navigation: The University of California, Riverside, will crunch information generated by AudiStreets with data about road grades and speed limits to create “viable, emissions-friendly routing decisions” for Audi’s navigation system. Smart engines: Berkeley will factor engine performance into the equation, using AudiStreets data to automate emissions-friendly engine-control decisions. Smart nodes: Some Audi models already are equipped with miniature cameras to help with parking and lane safety. Stanford researchers hope to use the gizmos to capture images that could be used to determine traffic volume and other information for the AudiStreets network. Incentive modeling and user behavior: Stanford also will test various incentives to promote the use of environmentally friendly cars and driving behavior. “We know our customers are already eco-conscious, but sometimes it doesn’t hurt to know how we can give them an extra nudge to think green,” the company said. Vibration energy harvesting: Stanford will try to create micro-electromechanical systems that would convert routine vehicle vibrations into a clean energy source for on-board sensors. The goal is a lighter Audi – one with less wiring that would use a network of sensors to maximize performance. I’ll bet Stanford is more than equal to the task. After all, this is the institution that brought us “The Play,” that frantic last-second kickoff return that beat Cal. And that was way back in 1982, when cars, and people, were not nearly as smart as they are now.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Through an effort called “Clean Air, a Viable Planet,” Audi is using its technological expertise to make cars, and their drivers, smarter. Audi’s California Electronic Research Lab is partnering with three universities – University of California at Berkeley, Stanford and UC Riverside – on six research projects to reduce CO2 emissions.

Connected cars would pass road and traffic data back and forth, and drivers could use the data to decide the best route to maximize fuel-efficiency and lower carbon emissions. Engineers already have the technology to connect vehicles, it just has to be integrated into what Rosario calls an “Intelligent Vehicle Network.” Better driving habits can boost fuel efficiency by 20 percent, he said.

first_imgLetterkenny produce superb result away to NewryLetterkenny made the long trip to Newry on Saturday in the first league game of the season and sent out a message to the other teams in the league with a 60 – 5 win. The game started in fine conditions with Letterkenny immediately applying pressure on the Newry line with a series of quick recycles resulting in a try from Michael Turvey under the posts. Conversion by Brian Peoples. The Newry kick off went out on the full and Letterkenny attacked down the right with Egan and Williamson making the space for John Anthony McFadden to outpace the cover and score out on the right, conversion missed. With Jason Daley in the sin bin Newry came into the game and spent some time in the Letterkenny half without looking like troubling the defence and it was Letterkenny who grabbed the next score when some great handling from Daley and Egan led to a score from centre Andrew Gibson who had started the move with some straight running in midfield. An injury to a Newry player saw them reduced to 14 men and Letterkenny’s Shaun Dunleavy also had to leave the field for extensive treatment from Physio Ray Kenna. Newry defended strongly for the rest of the half but Shane Mc Art still managed to score after a powerful run down the left and with Peoples adding the conversion and also knocking over a penalty the halftime score stood at 30-0 to the Donegal men.The second half was also a one sided affair with Letterkenny adding a further 5 tries from Liam McGlynn, Jason Daley, Damien Williamson, Michael Turvey and Conor Dunleavy but the Newry men never gave up and scored a fine try of their own before the end. Final score 60-5.Letterkenny will be pleased with the result but wont be getting carried away with the scoreline and the boys are already looking forward to the next league game against PSNI on the 13th October at Derry YMCA.

Android Market Gets AT&T Direct Carrier Billing

first_imgThe Android Market has long been a source of frustration for Android users – it seems so much simpler to find and buy apps for the iPhone. With that in mind, a number of improvements have been announced recently by Android in order to help make both finding and purchasing apps easier. Add to that list now, AT&T Direct Carrier Billing for those Android folks (obviously) on the AT&T network. This means apps you purchase can be billed to your phone bill, instead of your having to pull out a credit card. Android Developer Ecosystem chief Eric Chu has just announced the new payment method on a blog post, noting that “The Android Market team has been working hard to deliver more forms of payment to further reduce purchase friction.”Chu says that the Direct Carrier Billing has been rolled out to all AT&T users over the past few days, along with other updates to the Market service. These include the new 15-minute refund window, an increase in the maximum .apk size, as well as content ratings and new categories for apps. The latter will include “Media & Video”, “Music & Audio”, “Business”, and “Sports” games.According to Chu, Android plans to “partner with more carriers” to bring this billing option to their subscribers. As it stands, AT&T and T-Mobile are the only US carriers that offer this.

The Hustler’s Playbook: How Hustlers Stay Focused

first_img Essential Reading! Get my first book: The Only Sale Guide You’ll Ever Need “The USA Today bestseller by the star sales speaker and author of The Sales Blog that reveals how all salespeople can attain huge sales success through strategies backed by extensive research and experience.” Buy Now Because you are a hustler, a lot of people are going to come to you for help with their projects. They will offer you all sorts of compensation for your involvement, from paying you directly to giving you an ownership stake in their project.You will be flattered by these offers. You will be excited by some of them too. Your excitement over these offers stems from the fact that you know how to help these people with their projects, and because you know that you have the ability to create value. In many cases, you will know exactly how to help the person asking you succeed in their venture.But in something very close to 100% of the cases, you shouldn’t get involved in other people’s projects.Here is what you need to know:Anything that isn’t part of your mission is a distraction. You aren’t going to have enough time to do all the things that you want to do when it comes to your own projects. Helping other people with their projects will distract you from your own projects, and it will push the results you need further into the future—or kill them outright. Avoid distractions by learning to say no.The time you spend helping other people with their thing is the time you are taking away from your thing. You are supposed to be doing your own meaningful work. That takes a massive investment of time and energy. By saying “yes” to other people’s projects, you are stealing time from your highest priority. Invest your time in your hustle.There will always be more offers and more projects available to you than you have bandwidth. The more successful you are, the more people will ask for your help. The number of people who need your help with interesting projects will always exceed the time you have available. You are not missing out when you turn down the opportunity to help with their project; you are missing out on your project’s success.Your laser focus on the meaningful work you are here to do should dominate your time, your energy, and your investments. Nothing should take precedence over your mission. Anything that takes your focus from that work—and your projects—is a distraction. Hustle requires focus.You are kinder by saying “no” to the people who ask for your help with their projects than you are by saying “yes” and not giving their projects the time and attention that someone else could invest.Stay focused on your hustle.last_img read more
