Eagles’ coach Reid on temporary leave

Posted on by

first_img“He’s not going to come into the office. His priorities will be his family for that period of time, but he will be available to have a couple of calls with us and collaborate and if he needed to be here for a visit of a free agent,” Eagles president Joe Banner said Monday. “He will retain final say over whatever we do.” Reid, who is also the team’s head of football operations, will miss the NFL scouting combine and the start of freeagency. Garrett Reid, 23, tested positive for heroin after he caused a traffic accident Jan. 30, police said. No charges have been filed, but prosecutors are looking at the case. Police have said he could be charged with driving under the influence of a controlled substance, a misdemeanor. Britt Reid, 21, was arraigned on drug and weapons charges. He is accused of pointing a handgun at another driver following a dispute and faces a felony charge of carrying a firearm without a license as well as misdemeanor charges of lying to authorities, simple assault, making terroristic threats and possession of a controlled substance. Titans hire GM: Mike Reinfeldt, Seattle’s vice president of football operations, was hired as general manager for the Tennessee Titans. He replaces Floyd Reese, who resigned on Jan. 5, a month before his contract expired. Reinfeldt, who was with the Seahawks for seven years, was a defensive back from 1976-83 for the Houston Oilers, who left Texas for Tennessee in 1997. Philadelphia Eagles coach Andy Reid will leave the team for a month to deal with developments that have rocked his family the past two weeks – one son tested positive for heroin, another was arraigned on drug and weapons charges. The team said the leave will last until mid-March. center_img He has worked in the front office for the Los Angeles Raiders, the Green Bay Packers and most recently with the Seahawks. Reinfeldt was the Los Angeles Raiders’ chief financial officer between 1985 and 1987, then associate athletic director at USC. Arrington among Giant releases: The New York Giants released linebacker LaVar Arrington and two other starters in the first major shake-up under new general manager Jerry Reese. New York also cut linebacker Carlos Emmons and offensive tackle Luke Petitgout, both of whom were slowed by injuries over the past two seasons. The release of Arrington ended a brief and unsatisfying tenure with the Giants for the former Pro Bowler, who was signed last year for $49 million over seven years but suffered an Achilles injury against Dallas on Oct. 23 and played in only six games. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

He’s perfect for Liverpool! Two-time European Cup winner hails imminent Reds signing

Posted on by

first_imgLiverpool legend Alan Kennedy has welcomed the imminent arrival of Nathaniel Clyne at Anfield.Clyne is putting the finishing touches to a move to the Merseyside club after Southampton accepted the Reds’ £12.5million offer.The 24-year-old England international will replace the departed Glen Johnson, and Kennedy believes it is an excellent piece of business by Brendan Rodgers.The former full-back, a two-time European Cup winner, told Signal Radio’s Jonty Sargeant: “We’ve had too many problems on both the right and left side of the defence and Nathaniel Clyne impressed last season – and scored against Liverpool as well.“He’s the perfect choice. He’s fast, tenacious, he likes to tackle, he can get forward.“When you look back on bargains, we’ve had some great buys. Suarez being the top one at £23million, two-and-a-half to three years ago.“I think for a full-back, you can go anywhere up to £15m to £20m. He’s certainly worth it [the £12.5m] from my point of view.“I think he’s just what Liverpool need and will probably go straight into the first team with Glen Johnson moving away from the club.”last_img read more

How to prepare yourself for an investor: a guide

Posted on by

first_imgA recent survey found that many South African entrepreneurs needed help with things such as business planning. Find out more about how to prepare yourself for an investor, here.The Real State of Entrepreneurship in South Africa 2017 survey finds that some entrepreneurs do not know where to go for funding. There are various sources of funding, such as angel investors and crowdfunding. (Image: Brand South Africa)Brand South Africa reporterFunding is one of the challenges faced by many entrepreneurs in South Africa. In the Real State of Entrepreneurship in South Africa 2017 survey, many entrepreneurs indicated that they required education specific to the practicalities of running a business such as marketing support and business planning.According to the Seed Academy, which conducted the survey, there were more than 1,200 respondents this year. In addition, to deepen its insight into the true state of entrepreneurship in South Africa, the survey expanded its scope from start-ups to all entrepreneurs at any stage of business development.It was found that 18% of respondents had attempted to get funding from banks or development funding institutions such as the Industrial Development Corporation or the Department of Trade and Industry.“Some entrepreneurs indicated that they simply didn’t know where to go for funding, especially in light of the fact that most early-stage business funding requirements are below the R100,000 threshold,” said Donna Rachelson, CEO of Seed Engine, which incorporates the Seed Academy and the WDB Seed Fund. This is the third annual survey the Academy has conducted.Here are some learnings to prepare yourself before you approach an investor for funding:The different types of fundingOnline publication Entrepreneur Magazine lists the different forms of funding as angel investment, funding from a bank, crowdfunding, funding for previously disadvantaged individuals, and bootstrapping.Angel investment is when a wealthy professional provides you with start-up capital in exchange for equity in the business or a fixed percentage interest on the loan. Angel investors can be individuals or can be part of an angel network, to distribute risk.Bank funding depends on the different types of loans available and which kind is best suited to your needs. You need to provide a full set of financials and a comprehensive business plan for the bank officials to examine.Crowdfunding is similar to angel investment, but many individuals may pledge different amounts to the business in exchange for equity, interest or other more creative returns. There are South Africans platforms for crowdfunding: startme.co.za, thundafund.com and crowdfunding.co.za. You can also try international crowdfunding platforms such as kickstarter.com, indiegogo.com and rockethub.com.Funding for previously disadvantaged individuals can be in the form of a grant, loan or tender, which is given to previously disadvantaged people who have small businesses.Bootstrapping means starting and growing your business without any external help.Essential elements an investor wantsMarketability, sustainability and the business owner’s passion for the project were the essential elements that would interest an investor, said Gerrie van Biljon, executive director of Business Partners. He told the online business network SME Toolkit South Africa that entrepreneurs should prepare a concise story around their business idea.Van Biljon also advised that the entrepreneur know every detail of their idea and business plan. “Your value proposition should come through succinctly – what are you offering to whom, and why will they be prepared to buy it.”Useful documents for preparing your business planDownload the Industrial Development Corporation’s guidelines on how to prepare a business plan; or download the Seed Academy’s Essential Guide to Funding, or download the Yali Network’s business plan checklist.Experts on what investors wantTafadzwa Madavo, business development manager at Riversands Incubation Hub, told SME South Africa that if entrepreneurs were looking for funding, they should test their ideas first. “They call it a minimal viable product. Don’t look at getting a R1-million for a concept you haven’t even tested.”Robynne Erwin, operations manager of FinFind, agreed with this sentiment. “If you are still at the ideas stage, you need to be aware of the fact that ideas are considered to be cheap. [It] only gets a value when you have taken a step to make it real.”Andrew Louw, CEO of +Louw, advised that the entrepreneur must be able to explain their idea simply and easily in 30 seconds or less. “Focus on the things you can do easily without raising funding. Also, bootstrap as far as you can without needing to raise extra capital.”Watch the three experts give more advice, here:Speaking to the University of Pretoria’s Gordon Institute of Business Science, social entrepreneurs unpacked lessons they had learned when approaching investors.Pat Pillai, founder of Lifeco UnLtd, said the fundraising secret was to always trade for change. “Whether it is an investor, or it is someone who pays you a fee to make sure you grow young entrepreneurs in the most deserving and unprivileged part of our country, there’s always a report back on a return.”Sharanjeet Shan, founder of the Maths Centre, said that clarity and conviction about who you were and what you wanted to do was important. “If you’re not talking from the gut, it’s not going to work.”She added: “Why should I invest money in these people? I’m investing money because somebody’s life is going to change. If one person’s life changes, the lives of their community and the people around them change.”Stacey Brewer, co-founder of the Spark School, said she had learned that you should not change your mission nor your vision based on funding. “Believe in what you are and keep going, keep going.”Gregory Maqoma, founder of the Vuyani Dance Theatre, explained the conversation he had with his funders: “I allow them to understand the vision.“I also allow them to understand where we’re going — we talk about a five-year strategy. So, it’s a long term commitment rather than just focusing on a project. We align ourselves with what is desirable in terms of the space that we are serving.”His company was contributing to a bigger picture. “We can also be in a position where we can say it’s not only serving the community directly affected by the Vuyani Dance Theatre but it’s also about influencing policy; it’s about influencing change on a bigger platform, on a bigger scale.”Watch the video here:Know the term ‘due diligence’?You should educate yourself about due diligence if you are on the hunt for funding for your business, or if you are hoping to work with the government or with bigger companies as a supplier.SME South Africa explained that small and medium enterprises underwent due diligence when an investor evaluated the business as a potential investment opportunity, or a buyer was looking to acquire the enterprise.“Due diligence is a process where a business owner investigates the organisation based on their needs or requirements. The investigation can be legal, financial or anything that the business owner wants to evaluate before they contract themselves,” it reported.Learn more about how “due diligence” works, here.Sources: SME Toolkit South Africa, Entrepreneur Magazine, SME South Africa, Industrial Development Corporation, the YALI Network, and Seed Engine.Would you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

Pak to execute paraplegic man

Posted on by

first_imgLahore, Sept 20 (PTI) Pakistan is set to execute a 43-year-old paraplegic man convicted of murder, drawing condemnation from a prominent rights group. Abdul Basit, who was convicted of murder in 2009, will be hanged on Tuesday. Basit became paralysed from the waist down after contracting tubercular meningitis in prison. The Human Rights Commission of Pakistan (HRCP) has called upon the President to stay the hanging and grant him reprieve. “Human rights activists throughout Pakistan and beyond have been shocked to learn of the orders for the execution of convict Abdul Basit (a paraplegic man)on September 22, despite the fact that the unfortunate man is paralysed from his waist below,” the commission said in a statement. “We are also shocked that the courts summarily dismissed the pleas for taking into consideration the provisions of international human rights instruments for special treatment of physically challenged people.” It further says Basits mercy petition is still pending in the presidency. “In these circumstances the execution of Abdul Basit will offend against all norms of civilised justice, raise awkward questions about the Pakistan justice systems insensitivity to humanitarian imperatives, and indict the Pakistan state and society as brutal entities,” it said. Last month, Pakistan executed Shafqat Hussain convicted of killing a seven-year-old boy when he himself was aged 14, drawing international criticism. Since Pakistan lifted a moratorium on executions in December 2014 in the wake of attack on an Army Public School in Peshawar that left 150 people killed mostly children, the Amnesty International has recorded over 200 executions.

India vs Sri Lanka, 2nd Test: Virat Kohli hopes for stern test on green Nagpur pitch

Posted on by

first_imgAfter narrowly missing out on a win in the opening Test at the Eden Gardens, a confident India will be aiming to extend their dominance over Sri Lanka when the two sides face off in the second Test here from Friday.The hosts came agonisingly close to going 1-0 up in the three-match rubber but bad light ruined their chances to do so on the final day of the rain-marred first Test in Kolkata.Inspired by the performance of the fast bowlers in the first Test and keeping in mind the upcoming tour of South Africa early next year, the hosts are once again set to test the Sri Lankans on a green track at the Vidarbha Cricket Association (VCA) Stadium in Jamtha.The Indian pace trio of Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Umesh Yadav and Mohammed Shami shared all the 17 Sri Lankan wickets which fell during the first Test. But with Bhuvneshwar set to tie the knot, he was released from the squad for the remainder of the series.#TeamIndia is here at Nagpur for a training session ahead of the 2nd Test against Sri Lanka #INDvSL pic.twitter.com/A7vjrVf9Qv- BCCI (@BCCI) November 23, 2017Pacer Ishant Sharma, a veteran of 77 Tests, looks set to join the pace battery for the series.The other change in the Indian XI will be at the top of the order with opener Murali Vijay joining Lokesh Rahul after Shikhar Dhawan asked for a break due to personal reasons.Going into the second game, India will be brimming with confidence with the form of skipper Virat Kohli, whose fighting 50th international hundred in trying conditions at the Eden almost sealed the deal in the hosts’ favour.advertisementBatsman @mvj888 prepping up in the nets session ahead of the 2nd Test at Nagpur #INDvSL pic.twitter.com/uOPmYF7HLf- BCCI (@BCCI) November 22, 2017Besides Kohli, the middle order comprising Cheteshwar Pujara, Ajinkya Rahane and stumper Wriddhiman Saha also looked in good stead during the first match.But it will be interesting to see if India persist with two spinners — especially Ravindra Jadeja, who made very little contribution with the ball and had a lukewarm match as a batsman.Knowing Kohli’s fondness for wrist spinners, chinaman Kuldeep Yadav could come in as a replacement while rookie Vijay Shankar could also be handed his maiden Test cap.With Hardik Pandya missing from the set-up, Shankar has a chance of fitting into the playing XI, bringing the required stability that comes with a No.6 batsman.On the other hand, the tourists will need to revisit their strategy after conceding the advantage to the hosts, particularly after dominating for the better part of the first four days.While they have limited options to choose from in the batting department, it would be interesting to see if the islanders persist with pacer Lahiru Gamage, who leaked 156 runs in two innings in seamer-friendly conditions.In case, they continue to go with a three-pronged pace attack, left-arm seamer Vishwa Fernando could be an option to replace Gamage.However, chinaman Lakshan Sandakhan could provide that X-factor if the tourists plan for an added option in the slow bowling department along side veteran Rangana Herath.Vijay Shankar has been consistent and has earned his spot in the squad – Virat Kohli on India’s latest addition in the squad #INDvSL pic.twitter.com/fqvjfVVFkP- BCCI (@BCCI) November 23, 2017Squads:India: Virat Kohli (Captain), Lokesh Rahul, Murali Vijay, Cheteshwar Pujara, Ajinkya Rahane, Wriddhiman Saha (WK), Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Mohammed Shami, Umesh, Yadav, Ishant Sharma, Vijay Shankar, Kuldeep Yadav and Rohit Sharma.Sri Lanka: Dinesh Chandimal (Captain), Angelo Mathews, Dimuth Karunaratne, Niroshan Dickwella (WK), Dhananjaya de Silva, Suranga Lakmal, Dasun Shanaka, Viswa Fernando, Lahiru Gamage, Lakshan Sandakan, Sadeera Samarawickrama, Dilruwan Perera and Roshen Silva.last_img read more

Stars Stop Skid, Beat Isles, 3-2

Posted on by

first_imgDALLAS — Cody Eakin pumped up the deflated Dallas Stars with an overtime goal after the New York Islanders tied the game with 2 seconds left in the third period.“I thought we were playing well enough to win in regulation,” Eakin said after Dallas’ 3-2 victory snapped a six-game losing streak March 3. “So it was deflating, but it’s nice to get that extra one at the end.”Eakin took a pass from Jamie Benn on a 2-on-1 break and beat goalie Jaroslav Halak 2:18 into overtime. The goal gave the Stars their first overtime victory in eight games this season, and their first at home in more than three years.“The D man fell, (John Klingberg) made a nice pass up to Benn, and Benn made a great pass over to me and I just slapped it,” Eakin said.Anders Lee tied it for New York in the waning seconds when his shot from the left-wing boards hit defender Jordie Benn’s skate and eluded goalie Kari Lehtonen.On the Stars’ bench, coach Lindy Ruff said, “Unbelievable.”“With a couple of adjectives in front of it,” he added later.“Jordie Benn played as well as he’s played all year, and to have the puck go off his skate … I shook my head,” Ruff said.Josh Bailey scored for the Islanders in the first period. Brett Ritchie and Vernon Fiddler scored on third-period rebounds as Dallas rallied for a 2-1 lead.Lehtonen made 35 saves for the Stars, who were 0-4-2 in their previous six games. Four nights earlier, Ruff had criticized the goalie’s play.“We talked a little bit, but I understood his angle,” Lehtonen said. “The message was I have to be better.”Ruff said: “Kari was under the weather and still wanted to play. He made a couple of real big saves when we needed in those last couple periods. Real good performance.”Halak stopped 32 shots but the Islanders lost their second consecutive game. They lead the Metropolitan Division by one point over the rival New York Rangers, though the Rangers have three games in hand.“Even if we didn’t get the break with 1-point-whatever seconds left, we deserved the point,” Islanders coach Jack Capuano said. “We played hard. It’s a good point for us here against a good team.”The Islanders killed off a 5-minute power play following Matt Martin’s major penalty and game misconduct at 1:48 for kneeing Dallas’ Trevor Daley, who left the ice and did not return.Ruff said Daley would miss “weeks” and, “that’s a suspension.” Capuano said: “In my view, he’s planted and there was no intent.”Bailey scored at 15:25 of the first period. Brock Nelson, left alone behind the net near the left corner, passed across to Ryan Strome, unattended on the right side. He passed out front to Bailey, who shot across Lehtonen’s body into the upper left of the net.The Stars tied the game 1-all at 2:24 when Ritchie put in the rebound of Jyrki Jokipakka’s shot off Halak’s pads.Fiddler scored at 7:28. Ryan Garbutt’s shot from the high slot hit the glass behind the net and bounced out on the left side. Fiddler put the puck behind Halak.Neither team scored on the power play. Dallas was 0-for-5, and New York was 0-for-3.TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more
