first_imgMAYBE it was the weather – but Finn Harps were definitely under the weather as they crashed to a 4-0 away defeat on Friday night at Mervue United.The temperature at Fahy’s Field was still in the high 20s by kick-off, and the referee was to rightly allow water breaks through the game.But the weather was to be the only treat for the Harps fans. Kevin McHugh forced a good save after 15 minutes from the United keeper Connor Gleeson.But it was the home side which took the lead four minutes later.Harps midfielder Mark Forker was adjudged to have fouled Noel Varley on the edge of the Harps box, and Jason Molloy curley the resultant free kick into the top corner.Forker tried to make up for his error on the 34th minute as he fired in a low shot that looked bound for the equaliser, but Gleeson pulled off another fine save. At the other end Ciaran Gallagher pulled off a stunning save just before the break to leave it 1-0 to the home side at half-time.Within six minutes of the re-start Mervue extended their lead with a scrappy goal as Mike Duffy bundled the ball over the line and Harps night got much worse in the 59th minute when Marc Ludden’s stunning strike from distance found the back of the Harps’ net.Paul McVeigh had the chance to pull a goal back shortly afterwards when in on the keeper but Gleeson saved again.And in the 78th minute Ryan Manning added a stunning fourth home goal from the edge of the box. MERVUE HIT FINN HARPS FOR FOUR IN GALWAY HEAT was last modified: July 20th, 2013 by BrendaShare 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:MERVUE HIT FINN HARPS FOR FOUR IN GALWAY HEATlast_img read more

Story of Madiba and Zelda set for the big screen

first_img25 February 2016Zelda la Grange’s ‘Good Morning Mr Mandela’ to become a movie— Times LIVE (@TimesLIVE) February 23, 2016Zelda la Grange published her memoir, Good Morning, Mr Mandela, in 2014 to wide acclaim. Since then, it has been published worldwide, in several languages; now it is set to become a film.The book covers her years as private secretary to Nelson Mandela during his presidency and in his post-presidential staff until his death in 2013. La Grange was also a founding staff member of the Nelson Mandela Foundation.While many books have been written about the life of Mandela, La Grange’s was the first to offer an inside look at the day-to-day dealings of the person behind the icon. It offers a rare portrait of a humble but proud man on the pinnacle of history.The book also explores the contrast of a young, white Afrikaans woman serving the first black president of a newly democratic South Africa. It acts as a metaphor for the country as a whole, dealing with rapid changes and learning new ways to reconcile its turbulent history with its transition to democracy.In the book, La Grange also pays tribute to a man who taught her valuable lessons about human relationships and forgiveness.Bill Clinton, the former American president, called La Grange’s book “an important reminder of the lessons Madiba taught us all”.That remarkable story is now set to become a film, as announced on 22 February.Renowned, award-winning producer Trudie Styler, the producer of cult hit Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels and the Bafta-winning science fiction film Moon, and her Maven Pictures have bought the rights to the book and have already begun working on a script.Let’s make a movie! @ZeldalaGrangeSA #GoodMorningMrMandela— Maven Pictures (@Maven_Pictures) February 22, 2016La Grange relayed the news via Twitter this week, enthusiastic about telling one of South Africa’s good stories.Thank you Maven Pictures for believing in the power of a South African story— Zelda la Grange (@ZeldalaGrangeSA) February 22, 2016As news of the proposed film spread this week, naturally the Twitterverse was rife with speculation about who should play Zelda in the film, with most suggesting that South African-born Oscar winner Charlize Theron would be the natural choice. Other suggestions included Julianne Moore, Naomi Watts and Game of Thrones’ Emilia Clarke.More importantly, who should play Madiba this time around? With Oscar nominated performances by Idris Elba in Mandela: The Long Walk to Freedom in 2013, and Morgan Freeman in Invictus, among other portrayals, it seems the field might be limited as far as international actors are concerned.Perhaps this time, as has been a popular sentiment among South Africans, a local actor should get the role: John Kani, Sello Maake ka Ncube or World War Z’s Fana Mokoena, maybe?Whoever may be cast, the film, no doubt, will be an opportunity to tell the world another great South African story.Source: News24Wirelast_img read more

Bing’s Bias: Tinfoil Hats Don’t Seem Necessary Yet

first_imgWhy Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Tags:#Microsoft#NYT#search#web marshall kirkpatrick PCWorld and ran a story by Shane O’Neill today alleging that Microsoft’s search engine Bing returns results for certain queries that are contrary to the searcher’s intent and biased in favor of Microsoft. “Why is Windows so expensive?” and “Is Microsoft evil?” are the two examples O’Neill says bring back anti-Apple and anti-Google search results.The only problem is, that doesn’t seem true. At least not anymore in our experience. While some Microsoft conspiracy theories may have some merit (European courts say so), this one either doesn’t or has already been vanquished by a couple of articles on the web.O’Neill points to the first result in a search on Bing for “Why is Windows so expensive?” and alleges it’s biased in favor of Microsoft. It’s a Yahoo Answers thread titled “Why Are Macs so expensive?” That’s funny, but if you read the thread it was written by someone who says they hate Microsoft. The answer to the question that was selected as the best is a really good explanation of why Macs are expensive – and worth it. That doesn’t seem like a pro-Microsoft search result.The second example cited is the search query “is Microsoft evil?” O’Neill saw a link to an article about Google being evil as his first search result, but we don’t. The first result we see is to a year-old blog post that does argue in favor of Microsoft in the monopoly debate, but the second result is a link to Heck, the blurb just above the fold reads “Redmond, WA – Microsoft purchased evil from Satan for $2.7 billion after many months of tough negotiations.” Those don’t seem like pro-Microsoft search results to us.Start typing “is microsoft…” into Bing and the only suggested search is “is Microsoft a monopoly?” The first result for that search is a pretty unbiased look at the case, and the second is a link to the Wikipedia article about United States vs. Microsoft.That all sounds pretty fair to us. It doesn’t make sense that someone at Bing would take the time and risk messing with search results like that. We’ll have to put this conspiracy theory back on the shelf.

7 days agoBenteke, Tomkins extend Crystal Palace contracts

first_imgTagsTransfersAbout the authorAnsser SadiqShare the loveHave your say Benteke, Tomkins extend Crystal Palace contractsby Ansser Sadiq7 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveCrystal Palace are boosted by news that Christian Benteke and James Tomkins have extended their contracts.Tomkins will now be with the club until the end of the 2021/2022 season, while Benteke has a contract that expires at the end of the 2020/2021 campaign.While Tomkins is a key player, Benteke’s renewal was a little surprising given he has only started two Premier League games and not scored a goal in league play this season.Speaking about the renewals, Palace club chairman Steve Parish had the following to say: “I’m pleased that agreements have been reached with these two important senior players.”Both James and Christian bring vast Premier League experience, commitment and professionalism to the squad.”These new deals show that we recognise their levels of performance in recent seasons, that we believe in both players, and that they are hugely motivated by the direction the club is heading.” last_img read more

Martinez accuses Real Sociedad of blocking Manchester City move

first_imgInigo Martinez recently disclosed he thinks Barcelona and Manchester City deals have fallen off because of Jokin Aperribay, Real Sociedad’s current president.Martinez initially rose to stardom when he arrived at Athletic Bilbao in January from Anoeta for the hefty fee of 65 million euro. Now, he has been frequently linked with a move to the winners of the Premier League season but the player seems to think this will not happen either.“You see they [City] are really interested, they give the ‘okay’, but strange things happen,” he told Diario de Gipuzkoa. “You’re already p***** off and you wonder if it’s chance. Well, no, it wasn’t chance,” Martinez said, according to FourFourTwo.norwich city, manchester city, premier leagueReport: City are stunned by Norwich George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Manchester City was stunned by Norwich City in todays Premier League clash.Much has been made in recent days of the potential impact of Aymeric…“The same thing happened with Barcelona, it seemed. If I was annoyed before, that finished me. The ‘no’ from Barcelona wasn’t because of a Real issue, although they tried, but because of an internal issue at Barca.”“Here, though, the non-consideration on City’s part was motivated 100 per cent by some position at Real that I prefer not to comment on,” Martinez went on to add.last_img read more

Ronaldo would be fantastic with Higuain at Juventus – agent

first_imgThe agent of Gonzalo Higuain has welcomed the news of Cristiano Ronaldo’s potential arrival at Juventus and he believes that the duo will form a “fantastic” partnership for the clubThe Portuguese superstar has been strongly linked with an astonishing move to the Serie A champions this summer after reports had emerged on Tuesday announcing that Juventus had lodged a bid to Real Madrid for Ronaldo.Higuain previously played alongside Ronaldo at Real between 2009 and 2013 before being sold to Napoli.The Argentina international’s stunning goalscoring form saw him earn a move to Juventus in the summer of 2016 in a €90m deal after netting 42 goals in 38 games in what turned out to be his final season at Napoli.Higuain’s agent and brother, Nicolas, is feeling positive over the potential partnership his sibling could form with Ronaldo at Turin.“We don’t know anything yet. He was team-mates with Cristiano Ronaldo at Real Madrid, but they haven’t spoken about it,” He told Sky Sport Italia, via AOL.“It would be fantastic obviously, especially if he made a strike partnership with Gonzalo.Franck Ribery, FiorentinaFiorentina owner: “Ribery played better than Ronaldo!” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Fiorentina owner Rocco Commisso was left gushing over Franck Ribery’s performance against Juventus, which he rates above that of even Cristiano Ronaldo’s.“They know each other so well, as they played about 80 games together. If Juve can do it, this will be fantastic, just spectacular. It’s hardly new for them to work together.”But the downside of Ronaldo’s potential arrival is that it could spell the end of Higuain’s time at Juventus with ex-Napoli boss Maurizio Sarri reportedly keen on reuniting with the Argentine forward at Chelsea – if he is appointed the new head coach of the London club.But Nicolas is adamant that his brother is happy where he is.“At the moment we haven’t spoken to any other clubs, as we have a three-year contract with Juventus,” he added.“He is very happy in the city, at the club, with the coach [Massimiliano Allegri] and the tactical system.“Everyone knows his rapport with Sarri is wonderful and he sees him as a football father, but as far as I know, Sarri hasn’t even signed for Chelsea yet. Secondly, Gonzalo is happy in Turin so I see no real chance of leaving.”last_img read more
