Sublime Ronaldo nets World Cup hat-trick against Spain

first_img0Shares0000Cristiano Ronaldo celebrates his hat-trick for Portugal against Spain in Sochi © AFP / Adrian DENNISSOCHI, Russian Federation, Jun 15 – Cristiano Ronaldo scored a magnificent hat-trick on Friday to rescue a point for Portugal against Spain in the dying minutes as the World Cup in Russia caught alight.Ronaldo’s 51st career hat-trick in the 3-3 draw cancelled out two goals from Diego Costa and a strike from Nacho just as Spain looked like putting their chaotic week behind them with a morale-boosting win. Elsewhere on day two of the tournament in Russia, Egypt left out Mohamed Salah and suffered a gut-wrenching 1-0 defeat in the final minutes to Uruguay, while Iran snatched a last-gasp win against Morocco courtesy of an own goal.The Group B clash between Ronaldo’s European champions and 2010 World Cup winners Spain in Sochi was a red-letter day on the competition’s calendar and it did not disappoint.It was given added spice after the Spanish federation sacked Julen Lopetegui on the eve of the tournament after Real Madrid announced he would be taking over at the Bernabeu following the tournament.Spain forward Diego Costa scored two goals against Portugal in Sochi © AFP / Nelson AlmeidaFormer Real stalwart Fernando Hierro has been thrown into the deep end as head coach, with little coaching experience and huge pressure on his shoulders.Hierro watched from the sidelines as his team edged ahead 3-2 in the second half after twice battling back from behind in the match in the Black Sea resort city.Ronaldo opened the scoring in the fourth minute from a penalty that he himself won and struck again on the cusp of half-time when Spain goalkeeper David de Gea failed to make a routine save.Both times Atletico Madrid’s Costa equalised and Spain took the lead through Nacho in the 58th minute, who struck the ball sweetly past Portugal goalkeeper Rui Patricio.Spain appeared to be in control in the closing stages but when Ronaldo was awarded a free kick on the edge of the area the stadium held its breath.The Real Madrid man took his time lining up the shot before delivering emphatically, curling the ball past the despairing dive of De Gea.– Salah not risked –In the first match of the day Urugyuan defender Jose Gimenez headed in an 89th-minute match winner as the South Americans defeated an Egyptian side sorely missing star player Salah in Yekaterinburg.Uruguay’s last-gasp victory leaves them and Russia in early control in Group A after the hosts thrashed Saudi Arabia 5-0 in the tournament opener on Thursday.Jose Gimenez headed in Uruguay’s late winner against Egypt © AFP / Anne-Christine POUJOULATSalah, who has been receiving intensive treatment on a shoulder he injured in the Champions League final, played no part in the match despite Egypt coach Hector Cuper saying beforehand that the Liverpool striker would be involved.After the defeat, Cuper said: “He did not play today because we wanted to avoid risk or danger, but I think that he will be fine for the next match.”FIFA said they were investigating why there were large sections of empty seats at the Yekaterinburg Arena. The attendance was 27,015 despite FIFA saying most of the tickets had been sold for the match at the 33,061-capacity stadium.In the other Group B match on Friday, Iran’s players stormed the pitch at full-time as if they had won the World Cup rather than just their opening match after an own goal from Morocco’s Aziz Bouhaddouz gifted them a dramatic 1-0 victory in Saint Petersburg.Iran coach Carlos Queiroz, once of Real Madrid and Manchester United, insisted the chaos that has engulfed Spain this week offered little assistance to his team, but this victory certainly cranks the pressure up a notch.“Superman is only in the cartoons,” Queiroz said. “Nobody is superman. What can happen once in a while is when a group of people are united, can create super stories and super things.”Iceland coach Heimir Hallgrimsson warned Lionel Messi’s Argentina will underestimate his World Cup debutants at their peril in Saturday’s Group D opener.Hallgrimsson said the Icelanders, who famously dumped England out of Euro 2016 on their way to the quarter-finals, were primed for their first-ever match in football’s global showpiece.“We’ve shown that if we work together as one unit, like we’ve been doing, then anything is achievable and it won’t come as a shock,” he said.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Striker, Sweeper and Defender were published between 1999 and 2000, but when asked if he planned to write anymore, he said: “No, have you read them? Go and read them and you’ll understand why.” One review on Amazon begins like this: “This is a vexing book. On the one hand it is one of the most poorly written books I have ever read, yet it is hugely satisfying.” The picture, above, is taken from eBay where a copy of Striker had been on sale for £250.

He decided to make an offer when the bidding reached €30,000, believing it would sell for a lot more money. It didn’t, but fortunately for him he wasn’t stuck with the animal for long. “Thankfully, about 10 minutes later, someone came up to me and said: ‘Do you really want that horse?’ I said: ‘Nah, I was just fooling around.’ He offered to buy it off me for €35,000, so I made a bit of money.” Where Ancelotti ranks with every Premier League boss for trophies won ADVICE 5.

first_imgA YOUNG soccer player who went on a St Patrick’s Day drinking spree after a match tried to start a fight with a bouncer before telling a Garda to f*** off, a court has heard.Michael Doherty, from Glencar Irish in Letterkenny was apprehended outside the club on the Ramelton Road in the town in the early hours of March 17 this year.Garda Inspector Goretti Sheridan told Judge Paul Kelly at Letterkenny District Court that 22-year-old Doherty was drunk in a public place and used threatening and abusive behaviour. At one point Doherty had tried to grab a member of the door staff and when Garda Joe Kealy tried to calm him, Doherty had told him to ‘f*** off.’Defence solicitor Frank Dorrian said his client had played a football match earlier and had gone out for a drink afterwards.“The party extended into the small hours. There was a tussle at the door with bar staff in what was an unwinnable argument for this young man,” Mr Dorrian told Judge Paul Kelly.“He is a very keen and able young sports man and alcohol does not form part of his life. He is otherwise a very reasonable young man.”Mr Dorrian added: “He is very contrite about what happened and he assures me there will be no repeat performance.”Doherty, a student, was ordered to make a €100 donation to the Donegal Youth Service.SOCCER PLAYER WHO THREATENED GARDA ‘A REASONABLE YOUNG MAN’ – COURT TOLD was last modified: May 20th, 2014 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Glencar IrishletterkennyMichael DohertySt Patrick’s Daythreatening behaviourlast_img read more

Song, dance marks Africa Day

first_img25 May 2015Songs, dancing and traditional dress from various African nations was the order of the day as thousands of people from across the continent converged in Mamelodi, in eastern Pretoria, to mark Africa Day yesterday.They were joined by ambassadors from various African countries, cabinet ministers, African Union Commission chairperson Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma and President Jacob Zuma, who led the country’s Africa Day celebrations under the theme: “We are Africa – Opening the doors of learning and culture from Cape to Cairo”.Africa Day is celebrated annually on 25 May to mark the formation of the Organisation of African Unity, now known as the African Union (AU), by 32 governments in 1963. South Africa rejoined the continental and international community in 1994 following its first democratic elections. This year, the day also celebrated 21 years since this reintegration.Speaking at the event, Zuma said Africa Day was a celebration of African progress, but also a day to reflect on the challenges that remained. “We have a lot to celebrate and we have a lot to look forward to. Africa Day is a celebration of African unity and a reminder that we should never lose sight of that noble goal of the founding leaders of the [Organisation of African Unity].“We also at the same time celebrate the solidarity and friendship provided by South Africans in many townships and villages to African nationals who came to settle in our country in search of opportunities even at the height of apartheid colonialism.”He encouraged South Africans to use Africa Day to learn more about the AU, its structures, programmes and the continent in general. “We need to understand our own country’s contribution to the work of the AU in building a better Africa and in contributing to building a better world,” Zuma said.South Africa was proud of its modest contribution to the success of the continent through its involvement in peacemaking, peacekeeping, as well as reconstruction and development, working within the AU and with other countries.GrowthAfrica was one of the fastest growing regions in the world, Zuma said. “We have a sound socio-economic development plan in the form of the New Partnership for Africa’s Development. We have clear programmes to advance infrastructure development, industrialisation and advancement in agriculture, health and other social programmes.”The challenge, he said, was to make the growth inclusive and for it to translate into an improved quality of life for the one billion people on the continent. “We should therefore continue working in unity, to make Africa a continent of hope for the youth and future generations.“As South Africans, we are proud of our African identity. We are proud to be part of a continent that is growing, that has a bright future.”The anthemHe also called on every school, church or community choir and individuals to practise the AU anthem and sing it at all important gatherings and celebrations. “We urge South African institutions and companies to begin flying the African Union flag together with the South African flag.“[The] government has organised a colourful Africa Month programme taking place in various areas to celebrate our songs, dance, books, poetry, fashion, food and everything that is African about our country and culture.“That is part of celebrating and reclaiming the African identity of our country and people, which had been suppressed by the racist minority regime of the apartheid era,” Zuma said.In her speech, Dlamini-Zuma said South Africans needed to remember and understand that they too were African.“I’ve been living in Ethiopia for years and I’ve never been made to feel like a foreigner or a migrant; I felt like an African. We are one continent, one people and one destiny,” she said to loud applause.Some 60% of external tourists to South Africa were Africans, she said, adding that the country benefited from them.Source: SAnews.govlast_img read more

Quip Is Bringing The Word-Processing Era To Its End

first_imgIT + Project Management: A Love Affair Besides the sexy collaboration features, Quip is a stripped-down word processor. Font sizes are limited to three styles: paragraph, heading and list.There are only three buttons: “Format,” indicated by a paragraph symbol; “Insert,” for adding external elements, such as images or tables; and “Done,” which puts the keyboard away.The Insert button also lets you link to a person, using the well-understood @ symbol. And this is where Quip shines. It’s all about collaborative editing. If you change something, other team members swiftly receive an email.Change is what Quip is all about, and it handles changes beautifully. When you modify something in a document, Quip will put a notification of that change in your chat stream. Each change is displayed as a sheet of torn paper. Multiple changes show up as a stack of torn sheets, which, when clicked, expand to show individual changes. (That kind of design touch, known in the trade as “skeuomorphism,” is one of the few acknowledgements of the paper-driven document world Quip has otherwise left behind.)Quip cofounder Kevin Gibbs tells me that this change notification is called a “diff.” He says he’s particularly proud of his design for a stack of diffs.Keeping it simple is a mandate of the mobile era, where speedy swipe operations are design mantras. It’s this sea-change shift to mobile platforms that offered Quip an opportunity to reshape the word processing landscape.The Golden Goose Is DeadMicrosoft Word obliterated the PC market’s dominant ’80s player, WordPerfect, because it leveraged a new platform, Windows. WordPerfect’s 50% market share quickly crashed to less than 10% after Microsoft launched Word and then followed with the rest of its Office suite.Not much has changed.With a change in operating system came a change in market leadership. That same changing landscape exists today. As Quip cofounder Bret Taylor tells me, “We felt that this was the first time in 30 years that we could compete in this space.”Jungle drums have certainly been beating loudly that change is needed. The first to heed the call was Google, which released a free, Web-based competitor to Office, Google Docs, in September 2007. Now called Google Drive and more focused on file-sharing, it was designed from the ground up for the internet and collaboration.By October 2011, Google announced that 4 million businesses and 40 million people around the globe were using Google Apps, its Office-like suite of applications that includes Gmail, Google Talk, Calendar and Docs.At the Google I/O conference in June 2012, Google noted that Gmail had 425 million users while 5 million businesses used Google Apps. (In December 2012, Google discontinued a free version of Google Apps for small businesses, which undoubtedly slowed its uptake.)But 5 million is just a drop in the bucket compared to Microsoft Office, which is used by more than 500 million people around the world, and which contributed $24 billion to Microsoft’s $73 billion in 2012 revenues.Microsoft can close that chapter. As Germans like to say, Die fetten Jahren sind vorbei—the fat years are over. Or in Steve Jobs-speak: The post-PC era has arrived.There’s An App For That—Too Many Of ThemBesides Google, Quip’s biggest competitor today is Apple, which sells its Pages app for $10. Since Pages remains the most popular of the three iWork apps, and currently ranks eight in the App Store’s “Top Paid iPad Apps” list, once can only guess how many copies of Pages Apple has sold to its 155 million iPad owners. 3 Areas of Your Business that Need Tech Now That word processor you use at the office? It was designed in the early ’80s, when the first version of Microsoft Word shipped. While revision after revision of this prehistoric technology have been released, all are modeled after a world long forgotten—a world of 8.5×11 paper, carriage returns, and ink ribbons.The same is true for spreadsheets and databases, core productivity tools that trace their history even further back to the ’70s. As the founder of MacWeek, I saw this early wave of innovation crest—and then crash to a halt. I had almost given up hope that I would ever see true innovation in the productivity-software category again.And then Quip made its debut last week.See also: Quip Launches, Promising To Reinvent Word Processing For The Age Of The iPadA Break From The PastQuip is perhaps the first word processor designed specifically for the tablet era, which wasn’t even a technological fever dream when Word 1.0 was released in 1983. What sets Quip apart is its built-in chat and collaboration. You might find that feature in Web-based text editing services, like Google Drive or Zoho, but not in stand-alone word processors.  michael tchong Tags:#Apple#Bret Taylor#Google#Google Docs#google drive#iCloud#ipad productivity#iWork#Kevin Gibbs#Microsoft#Microsoft Office#office software#Product Reviews#QUip#Word Processing center_img In 2010, Business Insider analyzed the iPad app market and estimated that Apple’s iWork apps—Pages, the Numbers spreadsheet app, and the Keynote presentation app—were on track to generate about $40 million in annual sales. Volume-wise, we know the market has quadrupled since 2010, meaning that Apple now likely sells close to $160 million in iWork apps for iOS devices—iPhones, iPads, and iPod Touch—each year. Since Keynote and Numbers linger at position 20 and 23 in the Top Paid iPad Apps list, respectively, it’s not a big stretch to estimate that Apple now generates some $80 million in sales from its Pages mobile app each year.That’s equivalent to 8 million copies annually, or a 12% market share of all iPads sold in 2012. This formula assumes that all iOS copies were sold to iPad buyers exclusively, but keep in mind that in 2012 Apple also sold 135.8 million iPhones.And if Apple and Google are not enough competition, an iTunes App Store search for “word processing” delivered 123 results for iPad apps. A similar search in the Google Play store delivered 48 word-processing apps, including Quip.This may explain why Quip is free for up to five users. Organizations that need more than that pay $12 per user per month for up to 250 users.There’s a rumor that Apple might make Pages and possibly other iWork apps free, perhaps in a bid to spur iPad sales and extra iCloud storage subscriptions. That could pose a challenge to Quip.Quip Must Evolve Faster Than The CompetitionIn that way, the landscape Quip is entering resembles the early ’80s, when software makers were trying to figure out what kind of software would sell on PCs—more importantly, what kind of software would make PCs sell. There was a Cambrian explosion of diversity, one ultimately crushed by Microsoft’s Darwinian triumph.  For those who say Quip lacks the functionality of, say, Multimate in 1981, my answer is Quip is a breath of fresh air in a room that reeks of dead productivity software. And considering how quickly it was built, we can expect the team behind it to keep adding features. But the right features—not Web-based imitations of old, outdated functions.What features will matter to users in an age when we’ve shed the legacy of desktop computers, laser printers, and sheets of paper? Are we processing words, or actually trying to communicate, to share information? That’s the question that our choice of new tools in the age of the tablet will decide.
