first_imgLeague of Nations. Soccer does not stop. Still lack 107 days for the debut of Spain in the European Championship and on Tuesday they will raffle in Amsterdam the groups of the second edition of the League of Nations. It will be the first official act of Luis Enrique in his second stage on the bench of the National Team. Spain will be in the elite group along with Portugal (current champion), Holland, England, Switzerland, Belgium, France, Italy, Bosnia Herzegovina, Ukraine, Denmark, Sweden, Croatia, Poland, Germany and Iceland. Four groups from four countries will be raffled, and the group champions will contest the Final Phase of the League of Nations in June 2021.The list of 23. The League of Nations is still far away and Luis Enrique has his head on the list of those chosen for the European Championship, and before those who will recruit for the friendly against Germany Y Holland, on the 26th and 29th of this month of March. The coach’s concern has its own name: Kepa Arrizabalaga. His persistent substitution in the Chelsea takes you away from the call and the Spaniard could try Unai Simón in case the thing is going to more. Other players on Luis Enrique’s radar are Williams, Adama Traoré and Ferran. But the bulk of the call will be for those who achieved the classification for the Euro. Except for permanent substitutions (case Kepa) or alarmingly low form. Mediator. Luis Rubiales expects to be given the day to run for reelection as president of the Federation.

And if that was not enough, Rubiales has to deal with Infantino about LaLiga’s party outside Spain. The FIFA brought the subject to discussion last Thursday at a meeting in Zurich.

Slow start costs Ashley WBC title

first_imgKenyan boxer Fatuma Zarika became the new World Boxing Council (WBC) female super bantamweight champion last Saturday night when she dethroned Jamaican Alicia ‘Slick’ Ashley by split decision, in a hard-fought contest in Flint, Michigan. This was the main bout on a six- fight card that was put on as a benefit to raise funds to assist with that city’s ongoing severe water problems. The three judges scored the 10-round fight 94-96 for Ashley and 96-94, 97-93 for Zarika. The fight was a close one and the Kenyan boxer was able to keep pace with the champion by utilising her boxing skills to avoid punches and then successfully counterpunching. She had the edge in the early rounds, but Ashley got her act together and fought back decisively in the second half of the fight to earn the verdict on one card and make it close on another. The 97-93 scorecard for Zarika was seen as an aberration. Ashley was not her usually dominant self in the early rounds and her adviser, Luigi Olcese, told The Gleaner yesterday that he believed she could have earned the decision if she had been more decisive in the early rounds. “She made her opponent miss, but did not make her pay when she did and this made the difference. I nevertheless thought that Alicia won the fight, but it did not go her way and we just have to move on,” said Olcese. “We have a return fight clause in the contract and we will see how soon we can make that fight happen. I am confident that Alicia will regain her title,” he added. Zarika, who is 31, improved her record to 28-12-2, while Ashley, who is still fighting brilliantly at age 49, falls to 23-11-1.last_img read more

DONEGAL GARDA SERGEANT CRITICISES GOVERNMENT OVER McDERMOTT FIASCO

first_imgA WELL-known Co Donegal Garda sergeant has hit out at the Government handling of garda killer Martin McDermott following his escape from an open prison.McDermott walked out of Loughan House in Co Cavan last month and there was outrage amongst the public here in Co Donegal and amongst colleagues that he could have been sent there just seven months into a seven-year sentence for the manslaughter of Garda Gary McLoughlin.The Association of Garda Sergeants and Inspectors called on Justice Minister Alan Shatter to hold a full inquiry into how Raphoe man McDermott – who had 90 previous convictions and had escaped from the Cavan jail in 2007 – was sent there in the first place. Mr Shatter has insisted that no such inquiry will take place saying the issue had been “fully addressed.”But speaking at the conference Gda Sergeant Paul Wallace, one of the county’s leading crime prevention officers, was able to speak out in his role as a member of the AGSI.“There is hurt all around,” said Sgt Wallace, reacting to the Minister’s refusal to hold a full independent public inquiry into the Irish Prison Service’s handling of McDermott case.“I can’t even articulate that hurt but this seems to be the way things are going at the minute where we have people saying that we’ve had an inquiry and saying that everything is ‘hunky dory’ and it’s not,” he said. There is still widespread anger throughout the force in Co Donegal, and especially in Buncrana where Leitrim native Garda McLoughlin served, at the way the issue has been handled.Another senior officer, speaking on condition of anonymity, told donegaldaily.com that there was “no comfort whatsoever in Shatter’s promises that it won’t happen again.”He added: “We have lost two colleagues to thuggery of the worst kind. Just imagine how the rest of us feel when justice hasn’t been seen to have been done.”The criticism follows anger amongst rank and file gardai represented by the GRA. They want gardai on duty to be given special protection in new laws – and so far the Government has also resisted those calls.More rural Co Donegal Garda stations will be closed, Mr Shatter has announced, once again hitting morale in an over-stretched service. The Association of Garda Sergeants and Inspectors said the policy of closing more stations represented a serious erosion of the community policing model.The minister said he could not yet say how many more stations would be closed.Meanwhile a European arrest warrant has been completed by Buncrana Gardai and the DPP to ensure that McDermott is returned to the Republic once his four month sentence in the North is complete.He was jailed for assaulting PSNI officers and other offences when he was captured in Derry – 24 hours after his escape.

Is Nokia growing into contender in emerging tech?

first_imgHow Myia Health’s Partnership with Mercy Virtua… Internet of Things Makes it Easier to Steal You… Cate Lawrence Tags:#5G#digital health#ehealth#network grid#NHS#Nokia#smart devices#wearables#WING#Withings It would be easy, upon reading the news, to mistake Nokia as simply a mobile phone company, successfully re-releasing their retro style phones for those who prefer a less connected technology experience and enjoying playing snake. But Nokia has been at work in other tech verticals across a range of capacities.Let’s take a look at what the venerable phone company has been working on.Wearables and health techNokia acquired Withings, a French wearables and health tech company, for $120 million last year with a product range including connected scales, trackers, blood pressure monitors, thermometers and home cameras.Many of these are ideal for telemedicine, so Nokia is clearly set to play a greater role in connected health in coming years.  From mid-year, all existing Withings devices will be rebranded with the Nokia name. Expect to see more connected health devices from Nokia in the coming year.Nokia will also roll out the company’s HIPAA-compliant Patient Care Platform designed to transform the relationship between patients and healthcare professionals. The new platform will give doctors and care teams the power to remotely monitor patients with their smart devices to help prevent and manage chronic conditions and drive timely and targeted patient care to avoid unnecessary office visits and hospitalizations.The platform is currently being used by the National Health Service in the UK in a 69,000-person study to better understand hypertension and the role of remote monitoring in lowering hypertension rates.Launch of IoT network gridNokia recently launched WING, a worldwide IoT network grid aimed at providing a full-service model offering IoT connectivity across different technologies to manage a client’s IoT connectivity needs and assets, such as connected cars, as they move around the globe.It follows the launch of a new wireless router to bring electricity distribution networks into the IoT era and help utilities reliably and securely connect and manage the proliferation of field devices as more smart power grids are deployed. This is part of Nokia’s expansion into vertical markets like energy, transportation, and public safety.Towards 5GCEO and President Rajeev Suri used his keynote address to announce a new 5G product called 5G First. 5G First will feature Nokia’s Airscale cloud RAN, as well as its AirScale massive MIMO adaptive antennas for the 3.5GHz, 4.5GHz, 28GHz, and 39GHz frequency bands, a cloud packet core, and shared data layer.In addition, the system will offer transport services for 5G networks. The expectation is to intersect with the 3GPP once in released, most likely around 2020 according to Suri. Suri noted that the world would need to create a new type of network that will act as a global nervous system to orchestrate the growing “automation of everything.”5G First will be available to early-adopter carriers from the second half of this year, and Nokia said it will use the learnings from its 5G work to contribute to the 3GPP standard.Suri also commented that “webscale companies”  — including Internet giants such as Amazon or Google — will be building out their capacity faster than network service providers. “Non-carrier customers will add network capacity at more than two times the rate of carriers… we’ve seen a lot of shift take place from the carriers to the cloud players.”Nokia is a company that has managed to transform itself into a company heavily invested in emerging technology, even Virtual Reality. It will be intriguing to see what areas they decide to delve into next, as Suri said: “Nokia is a fundamentally different company than it was one year ago.”center_img Related Posts Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces Follow the Pucklast_img read more
