KOLKATA, India (CMC):Captain Darren Sammy’s aggressive, unbeaten half-century led a determined lower-order rally as West Indies beat Australia by three wickets with a ball to spare in their final official warm-up game of the Twenty20 World Cup here yesterday.Rocked by seamer Josh Hazlewood’s hat-trick in the fourth over to be tottering on 49 for five in the ninth over, West Indies recovered brilliantly to reach their target of 162 at Eden Gardens, thanks to exactly 50 off 28 balls from Sammy.All-rounder Carlos Brathwaite smashed 33 from just 14 deliveries, while Andre Russell blasted 29 from 15 balls, as West Indies scored over 10 runs per over in the final half of the innings as they gathered 106 runs from the last 59 balls.The revival started with a 23-run, sixth-wicket stand between Sammy and Russell and continued with an exhilarating 53-run, seventh-wicket stand off 23 balls between Sammy and Brathwaite.Sammy belted six fours and a six, while Russell counted a four and three sixes.But it was Brathwaite’s cameo which included three fours and two sixes that gave West Indies much needed impetus.He and Sammy combined to plunder 17 runs from the 15th over sent by pacer Mitchell Marsh, and they followed up by taking another 17 runs from the next over from seamer Andrew Tye (2-35).When Brathwaite perished in the same Tye over, Sammy and Ashley Nurse, who finished on 12 not out, then posted a vital 37 in an unbroken eighth-wicket partnership to see West Indies home safely.Hazlewood’s hat-trick had earlier handed Australia the advantage. He claimed Jason Holder promoted to opener for six with the second ball of his second over and then bowled Marlon Samuels and Dwayne Bravo without scoring off successive deliveries.Opener Johnson Charles (14) and Denesh Ramdin (11) also fell cheaply to leave West Indies in deep trouble.Opting to bat first earlier, Australia started strongly but were pegged back by medium-pacer Bravo and left-arm spinner Sulieman Benn, to finish on 161 for nine off their 20 overs.Bravo claimed four for 21 and Benn, three for 37, as the Aussies declined from 106 for one in the 12th over to lose eight wickets for 55 runs.Opener Shane Watson top-scored with 60 from 39 balls, striking four fours and four sixes. He put on 76 for the first wicket with Aaron Finch, who scored 33 from 24 balls and a further 30 for the second wicket with captain Steve Smith, whose 36 required 29 balls.Brathwaite was brilliant in his three overs of seam, taking three for 16.West Indies will now turn their attention to their opening group game of the T20 World Cup at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai where they take on England on Wednesday.

The results are finally in for the long awaited Worlds Masters Time Trial Challenge. The Blizzard Bike Club was 8th of nine clubs entered, with a total time of 35:42 minutes. They were only 9:12 minutes short of the entry from Redbridge, England, who were in 7th place. The Blizzards were the first riders to have their event July 20th, but had to wait for the other clubs to complete their events at later dates. All the times of all the clubs were compared on the internet. The BC Masters club from Vancouver Island won with a total time of 1:23:17 hours, edging out the Ontario Masters at 1:18:25 and unseating the perennial former winner the Edmonton Masters who had 1:17:34 hours.- Advertisement – The total time is the fastest five (over 30 age) riders. Each rider beats a set time standard and ëbanksí that time towards the team total. This year, Pat Ferris, Bob Andrews, Sam Keats, Richard Wood and Roger St. Jean had the top times for the club. Organizer Bob Andrews was pleased with the clubís first time in this event. He will try for a flatter 40 km circuit and a few more riders to beef up those times for next year. He also wants to get the minimum five Masters Age women out next year, to enter a Womenís team, as well.

Mathare, who entered the clash after edging out Chemelil Sugar 1-0 on Monday, continued with their winning streak when they took an early lead through Cliff Nyakeya one minute after kick-off.Nyakeya, who is on a scoring spree, perfectly connected inside the box from a Martin Ongori cross from the right flank, but a hard fighting Nakumatt restored parity from spot thanks to a well converted kick from experienced Donald Mosoti in the 22nd minute.The two sides wasted chances for the last 20 minutes to half time with Mathare keeper Robert Mboya saving Clinton Kisyavuki shot while on the other end, Clifford Alwanga saw his overhead kick collected by the Nakumatt custodian, Franklin Mwenda.Both sides headed to the break tied 1-1, but it is favourites Mathare United, who returned stronger in the second half, netting two more goals.Mathare United head coach Francis Kimanzi.Two minutes into the second half time, Francis Omondi made Nakumatt pay for their defensive blunder when Mathare captain, George ‘Wise’ Owino was pushed down in the box by Mosoti for Omondi to convert the penalty, sending the keeper the wrong way.In the 50th minute, Nyakeya could have grabbed a brace but he was denied by the right side of the post after the keeper was well beaten.After missing several chances, Alwanga finally found the back of the net in the 57th minute with a super finish after smashing home from the inside foot having picked Ongori’s measured cross.Nakumatt netted a second goal in the stoppage time courtesy of Donald Mosoti’s penalty. This is after Ongori fouled Kisyavuki for a high takle.Nakumatt are placed at the relegation zone with six points, having won only one match, drawn three and lost five.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Mathare United are back at the top of KPL after beating Nakumatt 3-2 PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluNAIROBI, Kenya, Apr 4 – Mathare United returned at the summit of the Kenyan Premier League table after seeing off cash-strapped Nakumatt FC 3-2 in a mid-week match hosted at the Ruaraka Ground on Wednesday.The win saw Mathare sit on 20 points, one ahead of defending champions Gor Mahia, who have two games in hand as they prepare to face South African side SuperSport United in the CAF Confederation Cup playoff.
Chelsea were convinced Kane had been offside before racing into the box, where he was brought down by Kepa Arrizabalaga as the Blues goalkeeper came hurtling off his line.It took more than 90 seconds for VAR to confirm Kane had indeed been onside before match referee Oliver awarded a penalty.“I don’t like the VAR,” Pochettino told Sky Sports. “Today we get the benefit of it but after watching the World Cup and another league like La Liga I see that nobody is happy from day one that they started to use it.”“To get the benefit is nice but I am unhappy to win the game like this,” the Argentinian added.– ‘Nobody is happy’ –“I prefer the technology but in a different way. Being clear, I am pro technology because you cannot stop evolution but we are waiting so long, it is not clear what are the rules.“We all have to agree, the players, the coaching staff, I watch every week La Liga and nobody is happy, the big clubs and the small clubs.“That is a good example for us. We have six months to improve the system and there is a lot of work to do.”Meanwhile, Chelsea boss Maurizio insisted a Blues video showed Kane in an offside position and also questioned why VAR was now being used in League Cup ties but not in the Premier League.“A few minutes ago I watched the video from our camera. It was offside. Our camera was in line with Harry Kane,” Sarri said.“Offside with the head, the knee. Offside. It was really important the linesman carried on running, he had a big impact on our defenders.“I don’t think English referees are able to use the system. If you are not sure with the system, you have to follow the ball and at the end of the action decide…“I think they (football officials) have to study the system. It’s very strange in the Premier League there isn’t VAR and in the Carabao (League) Cup there is the system. It’s very strange for us, the players and referees.”Kane, however, had no such qualms over the penalty award.“I played to the whistle and nicked it round the keeper, it was a clear penalty. VAR is there for a reason and they got it right,” said the England forward.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Tottenham Hotspur coach Mauricio Pochettino and Chelsea counterpart Maurizio Sarri were both unhappy with the VAR penalty award © AFP / Adrian DENNISLONDON, United Kingdom, Jan 9 – Tottenham Hotspur head coach Mauricio Pochettino said he was “unhappy” to see his side beat Chelsea 1-0 in the first leg of their English League Cup semi-final via a disputed penalty awarded by VAR.Harry Kane scored the only goal of the all-London tie at Wembley after 26 minutes with a spot-kick given when referee Michael Oliver called on video technology.

GAA: Former Donegal manager Jim McGuinness has lavished praise on Odhrán Mac Niallais and has said the young Gaoth Dobhair player has now emerged as a ‘key’ figure for Rory Gallagher’s side. Mac Niallais enjoyed a ‘dream’ breakthrough season last year winning an Ulster SFC crown and narrowly lost out on winning an All-Ireland title.He has continued that fine vein of form this term impressing in Donegal’s league campaign and has been outstanding in their Ulster SFC wins over Tyrone and Armagh. In his weekly column with The Irish Times – McGuinness wrote, “Within an excellent team performance, Odhrán MacNiallais was outstanding in his athleticism and decision-making and in the switching of the direction and emphasis of play.“He is a very fine footballer and emerging as a key figure for Donegal.However, while McGuinness was full of praise for Donegal – he was left mystified by Armagh and can’t figure out whether their performance was down to the Armagh management getting it badly wrong, or the players just letting them down.McGuinness wrote, “Armagh mystified me. Both Galway and Armagh lost on Sunday but there are ways to lose. I liked everything about Galway’s approach. They refused to be intimidated and had a cut and worked some terrific scores. “They didn’t do everything perfectly but would still have woken up on Monday morning knowing they had given everything and probably feeling they had closed the gap on Mayo.“You can feel at peace with yourself when you lose in those circumstances.“My hunch is the Armagh players will feel very differently because they know they offered no resistance. They essentially prepared for this match for nine or 10 months.“It made me think it was going to be a war in Armagh. But the opposite was true. Nothing happened.“There was zero pressure on Donegal. Karl and Neil Gallagher and Michael got on ball and threaded passes through without a hand raised or a shoulder put in. There was so little tackling or turnovers. “So what happened? For me, one of two things: either the management got it badly wrong or the players let them down very badly.McGuinness also reserved praise for man-of-the-match award recipient Michael Murphy and Karl Lacey who he said didn’t put a foot wrong in the entire game.McGuinness wrote, “Michael Murphy was obviously a towering figure. People talk about Michael on the edge of the square but there is nobody better in Donegal at delivering those long, diagonal quality passes from 60 metres and when you have an excellent forward like Patrick McBrearty in there, it can cause damage.“Because Michael is a natural full forward, he knows the type of ball that player wants. “Paddy McGrath closed out Jamie Clarke completely and the Armagh attack struggled as a result.“Karl Lacey brought his form from the Tyrone match into the Athletic Grounds and proved again how important he is to Donegal. He got on a lot of ball and I don’t recall him making a single mistake.JIM MCGUINNESS – “ODHRÁN MAC NIALLAIS WAS OUTSTANDING AND IS EMERGING AS A KEY FIGURE FOR DONEGAL” was last modified: June 17th, 2015 by Mark ForkerShare 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:armaghcolumndonegalGAAJim McGuinnessnewsOdhran Mac NiallaisSportThe Irish Times
Cloud Hosting for WordPress: Why Everyone is Mo… Serverless Backups: Viable Data Protection for … Salesforce finally connected the powerful Heroku cloud application platform to its own database layer on Tuesday with the release of the Heroku Connect tool. The move was promised last year when the company debuted its Salesforce1 mobile app, which was designed as a mobile one-stop shop for all of Salesforce’s various business application tools.Heroku and Force.com, the cloud computing platform as a service (PaaS) from Salesforce.com, represent two vastly different development systems based on completely different programming languages—but Salesforce now has a working bi-directional connection between them, in the form of the Heroku Connect Tool.Released only in beta form in 2013, Heroku Connect is now live for all Salesforce customers that want to integrate the capabilities of both platforms to build customer-friendly apps.Bridging The GapForce.com uses an object-oriented programming language called Apex, which was invented by Salesforce but incompatible with Heroku. This lack of synchronization became a major point of criticism when Salesforce purchased Heroku in 2010.Conversely, Heroku developers often build their apps with programming languages like Node.js, PHP, Ruby on Rails, Java, Go, and Python—but none of these languages are compatible within Salesforce’s native environment.Heroku Connect finally addresses this disconnection by allowing Heroku apps to sync with the Force.com database.In an interview with ReadWrite, Margaret Francis, senior director of product management at Heroku, said restaurant chain Red Robin has begun beta testing Heroku Connect and it has already built a customer loyalty mobile app using Heroku for the front end interface.Customers can interact with special offers in the app, for example, and the data gets synced back to Salesforce’s business process environment on the back end. Customer data flows from the Heroku-built user interface to business processes built with Force.com on the back end. anthony myers Related Posts Tags:#apex#cloud#developers#enterprise#Heroku#heroku connect tool#mobile#Open Source#Salesforce#salesforce1 Instead of a deep integration with Heroku, Salesforce customers can at least connect those apps to Salesforce without the need for extensive recoding, which is a potentially expensive and time-consuming affair. Salesforce knows it needs to show off tools like Heroku Connect to attract developers and convince them Force.com will work with popular Web toolkits like Node.js, Ruby on Rails and Java.In time, Salesforce may yet achieve a deeper level of integration with Heroku—but after four years, at least developers can connect the two worlds in a more seamless way. Developers need to be able to build apps quickly and at Web scale, and Heroku is one of Salesforce’s best weapons to allow them to do it.Heroku Connect is part of the Salesforce1 Connected Customer App Package, and pricing varies based on app usage.Lead image by Flickr user Danae Pollack under Creative Commons license How Intelligent Data Addresses the Chasm in Cloud Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting
