Gor hit Zoo, Tuyisenge ups golden boot chase

first_imgThe former Rwanda Police FC attacker now hopes to score one more goal in the final day of the season against Tusker FC in Thika to pick the diadem in his second season turning out for the 17-time KPL champions.But, the trio might be joined on top by Zoo’s Mike Madoya who scored the Kericho based side’s consolation and should have had another late on but missed a penalty.–Positive startComing off a run of four winless matches, Gor got into a positive start with left back Wesley Onguso breaking the deadlock with a low shot from the edge of the area after 17 minutes.However, the visitors drew level with Madoya scoring his 14th goal of the season with a simple header inside the box off a Bernard Odhiambo cross after 33 minutes.Two minutes later though, the joy of an equalizer were dashed with Gor going back up ahead when Tuyisenge finished off Francis Mustafa’s cross inside the box.Wellington Ochieng then finished off Francis Kahata’s freekick heading it in in the 39th minute as Gor went to the break 3-1 up.The recently crowned champions needed just three minutes in the second half to pull further away, Bernard Ondiek striking a sweet volley from a Tuyisenge assist.Zoo had a chance to draw one back late on when Madoya was clipped inside the box by Joachim Oluoch, but the pint0sized attacking midfielder blasted his penalty wide.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Jacques Tuyisenge is joined by Humphrey Mieno in celebrating his goal against Posta Rangers on August 10, 2018 at the Moi Stadium in Kisumu.

Organizers gear up for rally

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREOregon Ducks football players get stuck on Disney ride during Rose Bowl eventIn the Korean community, some employers have been bracing for the boycott, expecting many of their Latino workers to call in sick, said Danny Park, executive director of the Korean Immigrant Workers Alliance. Some small businesses plan to close for the day. Last week, the Korean Apparel Manufacturers Association sent out letters to its 1,000 members who employ an estimated 30,000 workers asking them not to retaliate against workers who don’t show up for work that day. “We don’t want a confrontation between employers and employees,” said Mike Lee, the association’s president. “We want to stand together.” Angelica Salas, executive director of the Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights, said she expects most of those participating to be students and longtime Latino activists. Readying for a massive national rally on May 1, organizers are calling on employers not to punish employees who skip work to protest, while state legislators are expected to vote this week on a resolution that would formally recognize a boycott. For weeks, organizers have been calling for a massive mobilization on May 1, International Workers Day, to show the force of the undocumented immigrant community across the U.S. – an estimated 5 percent of the U.S. work force. Though organizers have been split about whether the protest should include a work, school and economic boycott – they have been carefully working to broaden their coalition over the past two weeks. “This whole movement is snowballing not just in the size but also in the composition of the coalition. It’s diversifying, it’s not just Latinos,” said Nativo Lopez, the president of the Mexican American Political Association. In the coming days, he expects Filipino, Muslim and African immigrant organizations to announce they will join the boycott. “Day laborers and low-wage workers can’t give up their day of work. It’s not that they don’t support this, it’s economic.” rachel.uranga@dailynews.com (818) 713-3741160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

No time to look ahead for Halos

first_img When the heavens continued to open Saturday, forcing the postponement of tonight’s Game 4, many of the unexpected off-day questions turned to the waiting Chicago White Sox. And inner alarms should have rung. Warning systems that shut mouths and forced all responses to the evasive variety. Angels manager Mike Scioscia was already being asked Saturday his evaluation of the White Sox’s ease in defeating Boston. Best answer: Haven’t given the White Sox a single thought; only focusing on beating the Yankees. Given response: “Outside of Game 1, those games were nip-and-tuck the whole way. I haven’t analyzed those series very thoroughly because of the work that we have in front of us. “But we’ll look at them and we’ll break it down if we’re fortunate enough to get past these guys (Yankees) and get to Chicago, we’ll look at those games and see what is happening. But right now, there’s not a lot that we’re looking at past (Sunday’s) ballgame.” Right general neighborhood, just not a home run. The Angels’ sole focus must continue to be the Yankees, because they are not going to suddenly cower and wait for elimination. Their offense remains dangerous. They are playing at home. And it’s not like Angels starter Jarrod Washburn has been lights out all season; he’s been battling elbow tendinitis. New York is a prideful bunch with no interest in losing, but particularly in suffering some ignoble defeat at Yankee Stadium as they did last season when their collapse against the Red Sox echoed throughout the next year. If the Angels have serious designs on ending this series tonight and heading for Chicago, they will have to play their finest game against New York yet. Fortunately for the Angels, their style of play works against anything approaching the swollen head. They win by pushing the action, by stretching every opportunity, with good pitching and sometimes brilliant defense. “To the Angels’ credit, they are a relentless team,” Johnson said. “When you don’t make a play regardless of who you are they’re going to make you pay.” One edge the Angels may have over the Yankees is simply their past success against them. They eliminated them in ’02 and just generally play them tougher than anybody in baseball. In the unacknowledged recesses of their minds, you wonder if the Yankees wonder whether the Angels just don’t have their number. And now once again, the Angels seemingly have the Yankees on the ropes. “You have a club on the ropes when you’re squeezing the last out and you’re clinching the division,” Scioscia said. “That’s when you have a team on the ropes. “This series, the momentum will switch pitch-to-pitch and inning-to-inning and game-to-game. There’s no advantage until you get that last out squeezed in your glove and you’ve clinched the series.” The exact attitude to have, the exact approach the Angels need take into tonight’s game, weather permitting. The Angels spent their Saturday in Manhattan as showers continued to fall, darkness surrounding the skyscrapers, the ubiquitous neon left in an odd glow. If not ominous, it should have at least served as warning that darker times can lurk just around the corner in the postseason. “What you want to do is focus on that first pitch (tonight),” Scioscia said. “You can’t get caught up in the momentum swings. You have to keep playing baseball.” There is one more big victory to be had in this round, and for all their encouraging play, they must approach it like it’s the toughest to earn. — Steve Dilbeck is a columnist for the Daily News, a sister paper of the Press-Telegram. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

One very big game, the hardest game to win. For as well as the Angels are playing right now, they’d best eliminate anything that remotely resembles overconfidence. It’s not that they’re in obvious danger of slipping down this currently wet slope, but it is something they very much need to keep in mind. There is still work to be done with the Yankees, still another game to be won. The Angels are, understandably, feeling rather good about themselves at the moment. They survived a marathon that doubled as a baseball game on Friday night, knocking out Randy Johnson, watching the Yankees charge back for a 6-5 lead and then just kept the pressure on in an impressive 11-7 victory. center_img NEW YORK — Careful, now.

Leaked: Cuban Government Fears Bloggers More Than Activists

first_imgRelated Posts “(The articles) might have generated a reform debate among the dissident leaders, but instead they simply focused dissident frustration with the Cuban exile community.”“Younger individuals, like bloggers” and musicians, are much more appealing to the public and are targets of jealousy by the activists. In a second cable from later that year, Farrar underscores what a terror bloggers have become to the “GOC” (government of Cuba). “Much more threatening to the regime are our overtures to and complaints of mistreatment of bloggers, a group that frustrates and scares the GOC like no other…The conventional wisdom in Havana is that GOC sees the bloggers as its most serious challenge, and one that it has trouble containing in the way that it has dealt with traditional opposition groups. The ‘old guard’ dissidents mostly have been isolated from the rest of the island. The GOC doesn’t pay much attention to their articles or manifestos because they have no island-wide resonance and limited international heft. For a while, ignoring the bloggers too seemed to work. But the bloggers’ mushrooming international popularity and their ability to stay one tech-step ahead of the authorities are causing serious headaches in the regime.”A third cable described the meetings between Cuban bloggers and Deputy U.S. Assistant Secretary of State Bisa Williams in September. “The bloggers, who partly out of self-preservation do not want to be lumped in with the dissident community, were equally optimistic about the course of events. ‘An improvement in relations with the United States is absolutely necessary for democracy to emerge here.’” The distributed nature of the appeal and actions of bloggers and other cultural rebels are harder for the Cuban government to high-jack. How can the government infiltrate a group of bloggers who rarely meet, and none of whom know all the others, and whose statements are accessible, albeit with difficulty, all over the island and the world? What form the changes bloggers make in the future of Cuba will take is as unknowable as it is thrilling to consider. Read more ReadWriteWeb coverage of Cuba.

Infosys Plans to Hire More College Graduates in U.S, Says CEO

first_imgInfosys is looking at hiring fresh graduates in the United States to boost its profit margins, CEO Salil Parekh said. The IT company has already hired 4,000 people out of its target of 10,000 local American employees by 2021, Parekh said at Morgan Stanley’s annual India summit in Mumbai on June 6.“The way we have looked at it, we have announced 10,000 local hires in the United States and we have already achieved 4,000 in last 12 months including 800 college graduates. We have a plan that this will become close to 1,000 college graduates per year in the coming fiscal and the fiscal after that,” said Parekh, according to Business Standard.“In terms of margins, we have not outlined anything in the market what will the impact be. What we are noticing today is recruitment from colleges in the United States, at least in the very short-term, will be beneficial to our margins in FY19,” he was quoted as saying by the publication.The Bengaluru-headquartered firm has stepped up its local hiring in the recent past. The company said in April this year that it will train and hire 3,000 American workers at its United States Education Center in Indianapolis by 2023. “Infosys will provide an initial investment of $35 million to create the first 125,000 sq. ft. of development to transform the 70.5-acre site at the old Indianapolis airport terminal into its U.S. Education Center,” the company said in a filing with the Bombay Stock Exchange.Infosys also announced in March that it will open a new office at Hartford, Connecticut, for which it will hire 1,000 American citizens by 2022. The firm’s latest Technology and Innovation hub will be a $20.6 million project focusing on healthcare, insurance and manufacturing, and will offer data security and data-sharing services to its clients, it said at the time.Parekh, who took over as the Infosys CEO last year after the acrimonious exit of Vishal Sikka, added that the changing immigration and visa policies of the United States would not have a negative impact on the company. “We think, the environment is such that if we do the things in the right way, this (local hiring) is going to be a further expanding our business. So, we don’t see it as a constraint but the dynamics globally is different and the business model needs to evolve to adapt to it,” he said, the report added.
