first_imgEnglish-Bred Hariboux Rallies To Take $100,000 Pasadena Stakes By One Length Under Rispoli; Trained By Mullins, He Gets Mile On Turf In 1:34.07ARCADIA, Calif. (Feb. 29, 2020)–Relaxed early, English-bred Hariboux rallied through the stretch to overtake favored Smooth Like Strait en route to winning Saturday’s $100,000 Pasadena Stakes by one length under Umberto Rispoli. Trained by Jeff Mullins, Hariboux got one mile on turf in 1:34.07.Next to last in a field of nine sophomores heading into the Club House turn, Hariboux began picking up the pace leaving the half mile pole and he had two horses beat while about six lengths off the lead set by Smooth Like Strait three furlongs out. Full of run leaving the quarter pole, Rispoli split horses three from the rail, collared the favorite a sixteenth of a mile from home and won under an energetic hand ride.“I watched film of this horse before I rode him the last time (a close second place finish in the one mile turf Eddie Logan Stakes Dec. 29),” said Rispoli, who was aboard for the second time today. “You could see that if you put him in the race early, he will pull quite a bit. We decided he needs to be taken off the pace and it’s best for him.“Today, I was one hundred percent sure there was enough speed in the race, so Jeff said, ‘Okay, take him back.’ We were able to save ground and coming around the last turn, a gap was open, so why go around?”Off as the second choice at 3-1, Hariboux paid $8.20, $3.60 and $3.20.Owned by Red Baron’s Barn and Rancho Temescal, LLC, Hariboux, notched his first stakes win and second victory for Mullins in his fifth stateside start. With the winner’s share of $60,000, he boosted his earnings to $134,931 from an overall mark of 10-5-2-1.“Umberto’s done a great job with him,” said Mullins, who teamed for victory againg with  Rispoli two races later, giving each a triple on the day. “He’s a very studious guy and he’s a strong finisher. He’s been able to take him back, drop the reins and he’s relaxing very well.  He showed a nice turn of foot today and he’s looking like he’s going to be a really nice horse.”Ridden by Geovanni Franco, Smooth Like Strait was gallant in defeat, carving out all the early fractions while finishing 3 ¾ lengths in front of Club Aspen. Off at 8-5, Smooth Like Strait paid $3.00 and $2.80.The lone California-bred in the lineup, Club Aspen finished well to be third, a half length clear of Goliad. The longest shot in the field at 33-1, Club Aspen paid $10.40 to show.Fractions on the race were 22.59, 45.53, 1:09.46 and 1:21.92.last_img read more

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp labels Reds star ‘a big talent’ after Europa League win

first_img Jordon Ibe and Jurgen Klopp Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp believes youngster Jordon Ibe can have a bright future if he is prepared to work hard.The 19-year-old scored his first goal for the club as the Reds beat Rubin Kazan 1-0 to record their first European away victory in almost three years.After an encouraging start to his Anfield career, Ibe has been something of a peripheral figure this season, even under Klopp’s predecessor Brendan Rodgers, who promoted him to the first team.And in the week photographs of the team training showed Klopp offering Ibe his glasses after failing to pull off a simple pass, the teenager showed in Russia he can make an impression.“He is a good lad and a big talent, a very skilled player,” said Klopp.“He has a really good base and he feels good at this moment but he has to work on things and he has a lot to learn.“If he is prepared for this then everything will be good.”Klopp was satisfied with the performance, their third successive victory, but admits they can still do better after dominating for most of the game – despite not putting away the chances they created.“The first 80 minutes was really good. It was not easy to play because it was a fantastic atmosphere but the pitch is not in the same shape as the rest of the stadium,” he added.“It was not easy with possession, we could have had more and we deserved our goal and then we have to learn to win.“We had 1-0 and lost rhythm and opened the door for Rubin Kazan.“They fought for their lives and it was great to see how much they want to win and now everything is fine.” 1last_img read more

first_imgWith the first phase of homes almost all sold, developers of the innovative energy efficient homes at Rann Mor Meadow are preparing to begin the development of the second phase of homes at the estate.Rann Mor Meadow has been an overwhelmingly success so far, with the energy efficient specifications proving to be a hit with buyers. The property market is slowing getting back on its feet, and this is reflected in the success of the Rann Mor Meadow project.The prices being at their current level must also have contributed to the success so far.Most commentators would agree that these homes are actually an attractive investment when you look at the high specifications that’s on offer for the prices that are being offered.Buyers are taking the opportunity and are buying in at a very low point in the market which will surely represent a great investment in a few years to come. Developed by the highly reputable GDC Ireland (Limited) the homes have been warmly received by buyers, especially new home-owners aware of the cost saving benefits of the homes.It’s been estimated that the new homes which are the only ‘A’ rated energy efficient homes in Letterkenny will cost less than €1 a day in heating costs.Donegal Daily visited the development during the week, and we couldn’t help but be impressed by the quality of home on show.While the energy efficiency is a standout feature on the properties, they also look fabulous.The grounds-work has also been completed outside all of the homes and they really do look fantastic.The location is also a standout feature of the Rann Mor Meadow estate, it’s just a five minute walk from town, and it’s an ideal location to set-up base. Donegal Daily spoke to managing director Daniel Doherty who admitted he’s been absolutely delighted with the public reaction to the first phase of homes at Rann Mor Meadow.While Daniel also admitted there’s been a lot of interest expressed in when phase two of the development gets underway.Daniel told Donegal Daily “We’re absolutely delighted with the reaction so far, almost all of the first phase of homes have been sold, and that’s a remarkable achievement when you consider we still live in a challenging economic climate.“The property market took a battering, but at GDC we knew Energy Efficient homes were the way forward, and thankfully we’ve been proven right. “We’ve been very encouraged with the interest that has been expressed in the second phase of the development which will get underway shortly.“The diggers are due in there next week, so it won’t be long until there’s significant progress being made.For more info on the wonderful homes at Rann Mor Meadow then contact GDC (Ireland) Limited, Kilderry, Muff, Co.

Vogel stays on a roll at L.B. Marathon

first_imgCan anyone beat Martin Vogel? Apparently not. For the past four years, no one has been able to unseat the 40-year-old part-time professional artist from Tujunga for first place in the wheelchair division of the Long Beach Marathon. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week “It’s a blast. It’s a lot of fun. I go faster than I could ever run it,” Vogel said. About halfway, he took control of the race. “Those hand bikes go so fast,” he said. “They have a lot of gears. I only have one gear. So it’s tough to catch those guys. (But) I still beat them.” Vogel, a former professional motorcycle road racer who broke his back during an accident in 1986 and who had his legs amputated last year, has won 5,000-meter championships in several local races and finished 11th in the Los Angeles Marathon since winning his third Long Beach Marathon last year. “I just got into an accident with another guy while practicing,” said Vogel explained about how he became a paraplegic. “I crashed and hit the wall. And my bike hit me and paralyzed me.” On Sunday morning, he finished with a time of 1 hour, 56 minutes, 5 seconds, outsprinting Geoffrey Erickson, 55, of Wilmington. Erickson completed the course in a time of 2:29:47 to take second, and Nahu Gebreegziabhe, 40, of Long Beach claimed third with a time of 3:04:56. center_img Now, Vogel, who has been racing 18 years, is a part-time professional wheelchair racer. “I am going to try to win this next year and then I’m retiring,” he said. Last year, Vogel finished with a time of 1:51:11, and he won with a time of 1:42:49 the year before. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

FUBA NBL: Power takes on Oilers in mouthwatering contest

(PHOTOS/File)FUBA National Basketball League 2019City Oilers vs Betway PowerMTN Arena, LugogoWednesday, 31-07-2019 @8:30pmLUGOGO – Betway Power and City Oilers will renew their rivalry at the MTN Arena in one of the two FUBA National Basketball League games to be played on Wednesday evening.Power and Oilers have arguably been the best sides in the country for the last few years and contests between are always eagerly awaited.Oilers, six-time defending champions, enter Wednesday’s game as favourites, that is if form is put into consideration.Mandy Juruni’s side are one of only two teams yet to test defeat in the second round winning all of their four fixtures.They have defeated Our Saviour 110-53, Ndejje Angels 90-56, Falcons 102-52 and KIU Titans 67-52. However, none of those side possess as much a threat as Power.For Power, they are currently trying to regain their form and will be hoping to make it two victories in as many games.Boniface Okello’s side defeated KCCA Men 84-58 in their last game but the victory was their first in three games having lost to both Warriors and JKL Dolphins prior.In the second round, they have already lost two games in 8 fixtures and if they can somehow grind out a victory over Oilers on Wednesday, they will feel like they have gone back to their best.When the two sides met in the first round, Oilers defeated Power 69-66, something that Oilers captain-Jimmy Enabu believes puts them in a better position going into Wednesday’s game.“Our first round win puts us in a good position,” Enabu told the-SportsNation.“It means that we did something right to win the first game. Hopefully we can do it again.”The two sides also contested the FUBA NBL final last season with Oilers winning the best of 7 series 4-1 to retain their title.The other game to be played on Wednesday will see Muk Sparks take on KCCA Leopards in the Women’s division.MUK have so far been the worst side in the division this season. They lost all their first round games and have managed only a single victory in the second (round).The victory came in a 71-54 win over YMCA Lady Hamstars, the only side yet to taste victory in the second round.For KCCA Leopards, they are one of the sides expected to challenge JKL Lady Dolphins for this year’s crown.They are yet to lose a game in the second round and will be highly expected to win the contest on Wednesday.KCCA Leopards are the only unbeaten team in the Women’s division in the second round.When the two sides met in the first round, KCCA won 93-50.Comments last_img read more

Deal to boost Africa’s power

first_imgThree African countries are planning tobuild a new 400-megawatt power line toboost trade in electricity and ensuresecurity of supply across the continent.(Image: Graeme Williams, For more freephotos visit the image library)  Zambia, Tanzania and Kenya are planning to build a new 400 megawatt power line to boost trade in electricity between them, and ensure security of supply across the continent.Officials from the three countries are currently securing funding for the project, which is due to start in 2011.Teddy Kasonso of the Zambian energy ministry confirmed that Zambia’s counterparts in Kenya and Tanzania have been authorised to sign the agreement and letters of introduction to formally present the project to potential lenders and donors.The power line will run from a sub-station in central Zambia, through Kasama in the northern part of the country, to Mbeya and then Arusha in Tanzania en route to Nairobi.The project, expected to cost R6.4-billion (US$860-million), will boost trade in electricity between the Southern African Power Pool and the East African Power Pool, which incorporates Ethiopia and Sudan.Kasonso said technical, economic, and financial studies have been completed and each of the countries would be equal partners in the project.The project management unit, incorporating staff drawn from all three countries, will be established in Lusaka later this year.Africa’s energy crisisOver the last few years many African countries – such as South Africa, Zambia, Uganda and Ghana – have experienced sweeping power blackouts, also known as “load shedding”.A combination of factors – including rapid economic and population growth, conflict, poor planning and drought – have been blamed for the shortages.In the past South Africa, with its large stocks of coal, enjoyed cheap and reliable electricity supply, and was able to export power to its neighbours, like Zimbabwe and Mozambique. But this has changed over the last three years.Government’s decision in 2001 to prevent the country’s electricity utility, Eskom, from building any new power stations meant that Eskom had to run its existing plant too hard, so the rate of breakdowns rose.This was compounded by a difficult relationship between the utility and the state, and leadership problems within Eskom. By the end of 2007 the country was experiencing a crippling shortage of power and by early 2008 widespread blackouts plunged the country into chaos.In January 2008 Eskom temporarily suspended its power supply to Mozambique and Zimbabwe to address the acute domestic shortages.Eskom and government have responded to the crisis by announcing a massive programme to expand power-generation capacity.These plans include spending a projected R343-billion (US$46-billion) over the next five years to fund new power stations, with the first one to start operating in 2013. Eskom has also started work on two new coal-fired power stations to meet rising demand.Zambia, by contrast, still has poor power-supply infrastructure. Only 17% of urban households have access to electricity, while in the rural areas it’s as little as 3%. Kasonso believes the new venture with Kenya and Tanzania will help provide more power for the people of Zambia.In Uganda and parts of West Africa recent droughts have depleted rivers, meaning less of a force of flowing water to generate hydroelectricity in those countries’ dams. This has led to further shortages and power outages.Ghana has resorted to using massive gas generators to produce emergency power following widespread load shedding, which has had a serious impact on the economy.The new project is expected to help avert the crisis by also encouraging investment in new hydropower schemes in Zambia. This will generate surplus power that could be exported to other African countries, like Ghana and Uganda.last_img read more

FaceTime for Mac Arrives in Mac App Store…and It’s Not Free

first_imgRole of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement FaceTime vs. the CompetitionIt’s also surprising to see the $0.99 fee considering that Apple’s main competition, Skype, began giving away free video chat with its iPhone application back in December 2010. And Skype’s version works over both Wi-Fi and 3G connections, while FaceTime on mobile is a Wi-Fi-only application.Other startups in the video chat space are growing quickly, too. Tango, for example, does iPhone and Android video chat sessions with desktop support in the works, and up-and-comer ooVoo does video chat with up to six participants on Mac, PC, Android and soon iOS devices. How does Apple expect to compete with cross-platform competitors whose apps are free?Maybe Apple doesn’t need to compete with them. Back when FaceTime launched, Apple CEO Steve Jobs did note that Apple intends to make FaceTime’s technology an open platform for video chat applications. He probably didn’t mean “open” as in “open source,” but “open” as in – feel free to integrate our technology into your company’s video chat product. Assuming that’s still the course Apple is following, Tango, Skype, ooVoo and others aren’t necessarily the competition – they’re just another potential customer for FaceTime integration in the future. Tags:#Apple#mobile#news#NYT#web Apple has released FaceTime for Mac in its Mac App Store today, allowing any Mac OS X user to chat with friends and family on their iPhone 4 or iPod Touch. The app, which has been in beta testing since October, is now available as a $0.99 download. The price, although affordable, is somewhat surprising considering that FaceTime’s mobile counterpart – a built-in feature in Apple’s mobile handhelds (iPhone 4, and yes, even the iPod Touch) is free.Is it greedy or is it genius for Apple to sell FaceTime for Mac instead of give it away as a free download? And what does this mean for Apple’s iChat?Should Apple Charge for FaceTime?During FaceTime for Mac’s beta period the app was free, which is why so many users were surprised this morning when the new, final version launched with a small price tag attached.It’s not that $0.99 is a ton of money – most iPhone users think nothing of dropping a dollar for an app these days – but it is a limiting factor as to how many users will download the application. Free “sells” better than paid, at least when the goal is increasing the install base of end users.This begs the question: is there some reason why Apple wouldn’t want its FaceTime app spread more widely among its Mac users? One has to wonder – especially since Apple has decided to make FaceTime a standalone paid application instead of integrating it into its already widely known and popular Mac app called iChat. It’s odd that Apple would now offer two different video chat programs – one for desktop-to-desktop connections and one for desktop-to-mobile.
