SAN GABRIEL STAKES QUOTES-SATURDAY, JANUARY 4, 2020

first_imgJOCKEY QUOTESGEOVANNI FRANCO, DESERT STONE, WINNER:  “I could see everybody bunching up and I knew the pace was pretty slow, but my horse was just waiting for me to turn him loose, so I didn’t worry about it.  He’s always a handful. But he’s just doing really good. We expected him to run good today and I was very happy with the way he ran from off the pace.  I’ve worked him a lot and he likes me and I like him.”TRAINER QUOTESRICHARD BALTAS, DESERT STONE, WINNER: “He’s healthy now.  When we stopped on him (following a ninth place finish in the Grade I Shoemaker Mile here on May 27), we gave him 90 days on the farm and it did him a lot of good, he looked a lot healthier, obviously it paid off.  “Turf is weird, sometimes it holds the speed sometimes it doesn’t. The turf course changes daily so that is just the way he runs. You can’t change the horse’s style, he runs from behind and Geovanni Franco is the only guy that knows how to ride him. If you look at his form this horse just likes this jockey.“(Geovanni) does a good job, this is kind of a different horse. You can’t force this horse. He has a mind of his own, when he wants to run he’ll run and Geovanni lets him do his thing in the beginning.  He told me today, ‘If I can get him out we’re gonna be tough.’ He had been blocked several times in the stretch before.”NOTES: The winning owner is Zayat Stables, LLC.last_img read more

Cusworth Not a ‘Fake’ Degree Granting Institution

first_imgDocuments in possession of the Daily Observer have established that the Cusworth International Business School (CIBS) is not a ‘fake’ degree granting institute as reported earlier, rather, they are an institution accredited to offer advanced diplomas in Insurance and Risk Management.  During one of their routine exercises recently, officials from the National Commission on Higher Education (NCHE) reported the existence of a ‘fake degree’ granting institution in the country that included the CIBS.The CIBS is being administered by its president and founder, Dr. Austine U. Okafor, managing director and chief executive officer (CEO) of International Insurance Company (Liberia) Limited.However, documents in possession of this paper indicated that the CIBS, located on Sinkor 20th Street on Coleman Avenue in Fiama-Monrovia is a Pan-African Business School, and a professional insurance institution with study centers in Nigeria and South Africa respectively.As such, CIBS is duly incorporated in Liberia as an indigenous institution and is registered with the Bureau of Technical and Professional Education with the highest professional accreditation level up to advanced diploma in the fields of Insurance and Risk Management.  The institution was in March 2013, accredited by the Ministry of Education (MOE) with registration number 0300, through the Bureau of Technical Education to award up to advance diploma being business professional institutions like Charter Insurance Institute of London (CII), Institute of Charter Management Accounting (ICMA) and Institute of Charter Accounting of Nigeria (ICAN), among others.It is also established that the CIBS has affiliation in other tertiary institutions in Monrovia and the Anointed University in South Africa. By those memorandums of understandings (MOUs), CIBS operates as a study center for these establishments.According to our investigation,  at the end of the training programs, the students are necessitated to meet accredited requirements of those universities whose exams the students must write, and if successful, the diploma or the certificate (not degree) are awarded to them by the respective universities, but not the CIBS as was earlier perceived.Furthermore, CIBS seeks to fill the gap created by the absence of the West African Insurance Institute (WAII) to operate as a professional insurance training entity in the rebuilding process of post-war Liberia.Following the cessation of hostilities in the country, there was no university or higher institution of learning that offered insurance studies as a discipline, which poses a great challenge in the area of human capacity-building in the insurance industry; this is why the CIBS was established.It can be recalled that in 1990, the WAII was relocated to Banjul, The Gambia from Liberia due to the intensity of the Liberian civil crisis.   CIBS, no doubt, applied to the Association of Insurers in Liberia (AIL) who embraced the CIBS’ concept to operate as professional insurance institution, thereby recommending the entity to the Bureau of Insurance at the Ministry of Transport through the office of the Commissioner of Insurance, who was the regulator of the Insurance industry in the country at the time.The bureau, according to our investigation, approved CIBS to operate as a professional insurance institute for the benefit of the insurance industry.Not only that, CIBS also applied to the MOE through the Bureau of Technical Education, who awarded CIBS the license or permit to operate in Liberia.  It then received accreditation from the MOE to award basic intermediary and advanced diplomas.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Coach keeps Argentina guessing about Messi’s future

first_img0Shares0000Press rumours claim Lionel Messi has asked to be excused from Argentina’s friendlies in 2018 © AFP/File / LLUIS GENEBUENOS AIRES, Argentina, Aug 21 – Argentina’s interim coach Lionel Scaloni refused to be drawn on Lionel Messi’s international future after leaving the five-time World Player of the Year out of his squad for upcoming friendlies next month.Local media had claimed the Barcelona star asked to be excused from international duty for Argentina’s four remaining friendlies in 2018, starting with a trip to the United States in September to play Guatemala and Colombia. “I’ve spoken with Messi and from that conversation I picked my squad,” said Scaloni, who took over from the sacked Jorge Sampaoli after Argentina’s underwhelming World Cup last-16 elimination to eventual champions France.“We didn’t speak about what could happen in the future. We know what Messi represents for us and we’ll see for the future.”Messi, 31, has retired from international duty once before after missing a penalty in Argentina’s shoot-out defeat by Chile, for the second year running, in the 2016 Copa America final.That lasted little more than a month, though, before Messi returned to the blue and white shirt for Argentina’s 2018 World Cup qualifying campaign.As it turned out, the twice former world champions were on the brink of elimination until a Messi hat-trick in their final qualifier earned a 3-1 come-from-behind victory away to Ecuador and a place at the global showpiece in Russia.He failed to dazzle there, though, and hasn’t spoken publically since the South Americans beat Nigeria in the group stage to earn a spot in the knock-out rounds.Messi wasn’t the only Argentine star to be left off Scaloni’s list as Manchester City forward Sergio Aguero, new AC Milan signing Gonzalo Higuain and Paris Saint-Germain winger Angel Di Maria were also missing.“No player has told me he doesn’t want to be picked,” said Scaloni.“It’s clear that we must include new people in this adventure. I’ve spoken to most players and they’re available.“It’s the time to freshen things up. We’re convinced it’s the right time to call up these lads, they have huge potential.”In form domestic-based pair Cristian Pavon of Boca Juniors and Matias Vargas of Velez Sarsfield were called up alongside young Inter Milan forward Lautaro Martinez and his recalled club team-mate Mauro Icardi.Argentina play Guatemala on September 7 in Los Angeles before taking on Colombia in New York four days later.They will play two more friendlies in October and November against as yet unnamed opponents.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

So calm. Can play. Strong in the air. Power! Pure power! Big fan! And he wasn’t worth the money😂 Bet every club wished they had him now 🕺🔝— John Arne Riise (@JARiiseOfficial) September 15, 2018Van Dijk moved to Anfield in January for £75million – a world record fee for a defender and Liverpool’s record signing for a defender.However, these Reds fans echoed Riise’s view that he was definitely worth the large transfer fee. smart causal “The difference he has made since he came. So calm. Can play. Strong in the air.“Power! Pure power! Big fan! And he wasn’t worth the money (!) I bet every club wished they had him now.” Van Dijk and co. have won all five of their league games Although the Reds only won by one goal, it was a game the away side dominated and had their attack been more clinical it would have been far more comfortable.There were a number of good performances including from Firmino – who got what turned out to be the decisive strike – which impressed a number of Kopites.However, the defence should also be praised as the likes of Van Dijk helped neutralise Spurs forwards Harry Kane and Lucas Moura.And Riise, who played for Liverpool between 2001-08 was full of praise for the Dutch defender, tweeting: “The best CB [centre-back] in the world is Virgil van Dijk. silverware possible standings Milner’s been incredible but van Dijk is Man of the Match by a country mile.

Google Transit Search Gets Smarter

first_imgGoogle Maps has added a new feature: search transit directions by types of transit and time spent outside. Want to take the light rail and not the bus? Willing to take a longer route if it means fewer transfers and time spent outside in the cold? Google will now oblige. More data equals more choices and for Google to have taken the time to index all the more types of public transit is a real service to transit riders. Expect more details in a future announcement from the company, but check out the screenshot below. The new feature is live now.Google Transit launched just over 3 years ago and became a layer overlay option in Google Maps for 50 cities around the world 2 years ago this Friday. 448 cities in total around the world make their information available for Google Transit to search. Many of those cities include listings from multiple agencies, but for all Google’s desire for other people to open their data, the company’s prohibition of automated extraction of data from pages like the list of Transit cities makes it difficult to discern patterns in the service’s global extraction. That’s frustrating. marshall kirkpatrick Tags:#Google#web Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hostingcenter_img A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Related Posts 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Marketlast_img read more

Acid attack on two women athletes in Meerut

first_imgTwo women athletes were attacked with acid early on Wednesday morning when they were returning home after their practice in Meerut. Both the players — Shalu, a local boxing player and Garima, a wrestler, got seriously injured in the attack and have been hospitalised.According to the Superintendent of Police Man Singh Chauhan said the culprits include a woman who committed the act with her brother-in-law. They attacked both the players when they came out of the stadium after doing their regular practice. Both the culprits fled from the scene after throwing acid on both the players. Shalu’s back has been seriously burnt in the attack.Mr. Chauhan said that a verbal tiff that both the players had few days ago with the alleged attacker, is said to be the reason behind the attack.“We will file a case once both the players in the situation to talk to the police and give us their statement. Meanwhile the culprits seem to be one lady who had a verbal fight with both the players few days ago. Police will soon apprehend both the culprits,” Mr. Chauhan told the media.last_img read more
