Kerr warns Gor players against complacency

first_img“You can’t be comfortable. If you are comfortable, then you are asking for trouble. You have to keep focus and keep the six point lead. The rest of the teams are challenging and we have to keep on toes. Everyone still has a chance,” Kerr told Capital Sport.“Football is a crazy game and you have to expect anything. My concern is… do the players want it? If they want it then we will go out and perform,” the British tactician further explained.Gor Mahia head coach Dylan Kerr shares words with striker Meddie Kagere during a training session at the Camp Toyoyo Ground on September 7, 2017.Photo/TIMOTHY OLOBULUThe record 15-time KPL champions are seeking to unseat Tusker from the throne, having lost out to them last season following three wins in a row.With 13 matches to play, Kerr is confident that if his players, who he says are the best in the league, can keep up their momentum, winning the league title will not be a far-fetched dream.“Guys, you are the best team in this region. You guys are the best players and you know it. You got to trust me that you can have any success you want. Go out there on Saturday and give me this same energy, this same enthusiasm and win it!” Kerr beamed as he wound up his side’s training session on Thursday evening.Gor will be travelling to Kisumu where they face a stubborn Nzoia Sugar side and the coach equally expects a tough tie.“We highly respect them because they are a very good side. They will be coming to the game to beat Gor Mahia, just like everyone else. They will raise their game and we have to be prepared for a tough afternoon,” Kerr offered.-Gor won first-leg-Gor Mahia midfielder Oliver Maloba controls the ball under pressure from teammate Innocent Wafula during a training session at the Camp Toyoyo Ground on September 7, 2017.Photo/TIMOTHY OLOBULUGor won the first leg match 1-0 at the Mumias Complex, but they know it came at a tough cost with the Bungoma based club having missed a penalty in that match.“If you watch our training, you would be amazed. I wish we had the same aggression, speed of play and passing thought that we have in training. I say to the guys it’s a pleasure to watch them train with an attitude where they don’t want to lose, try to score, create defend…. my goalkeepers get so much work and yet when we go into games it’s different,” Kerr noted.Enterprising winger Boniface Omondi will be coming up against his former employers, the club he left for the plush city side during the June transfer window, and he has warned that Nzoia should not be taken lightly.“Nzoia is a very good team and the game is majorly based on speed and counter attacking football. We should go there expecting a tough game. I played in the first leg match and we really took Gor by the horns. It will be a tough game and more so I am excited to be meeting my former team,” Omondi said.“If I am given a chance to play I will be happy because it is usually something big when you move up and get a chance to face your former team-mates,” added Omondi.Gor Mahia winger Boniface Omondi paces away from teammate Mike Simiyu ball during a training session at teh Camp Toyoyo Ground on September 7, 2017.

However, he could not sustain the pace and tempo of training.“I think sometimes these players should be honest. I understand they want to play, they want to train. Karim has been out for a couple of days and I asked him whether he is okay he said yes. Sandro (Fantoni) said he should rest but he said he is okay. Now, we will have to assess him,” Kerr said of the injury.Gor Mahia fullback Karim Nizigiyimana passes the ball during a training session at teh Camp Toyoyo Ground on September 7, 2017.

People will have their eyes on them but in wanting them to remain, I got to make sure the club wants them. I would love them to stay but they have to agree and hopefully they enjoy being here and like my training,” Kerr disclosed.He has praised the trio as warriors in his team and was especially full of praise for Walusimbi’s performance for the Uganda Cranes against Egypt in a FIFA 2018 World Cup qualifier in Alexandria on Tuesday.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Gor Mahia head coach Dylan Kerr shares words with striker Meddie Kagere during a training session at the Camp Toyoyo Ground on September 7, 2017.Photo/TIMOTHY OLOULUNAIROBI, Kenya, Sep 8- Despite opening a six point lead at the summit of the Kenyan Premier League (KPL) table with a match at hand, Gor Mahia head coach Dylan Kerr has warned his charges against complacency as they seek to reclaim the title from Tusker FC.K’Ogalo are controlling the 18 team table with 44 points, six ahead of second placed Sofapaka who have played a match more.

Children’s Museum breaks ground at Hansen Dam site

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week When it opens in 2007, the 57,000-square-foot museum is expected to entertain visitors with its unique design as well as interactive exhibits. Attendees at the groundbreaking Tuesday got a sneak peek with a virtual video tour showing sketches of the interior and exterior. “It’s going to be so cool. The art and exhibits will be really, really awesome,” said Christopher Cruz, a 10-year-old student at Angeles Mesa Elementary School. Classmate Oscar Rodriguez agreed: “It’ll be cool when I’m really old; I can bring my children to the museum and then their children can come to the museum and then their children can come.” Organizers expect to draw 360,000 visitors to the Hansen Dam site, which overlooks the park’s recreational lake and willow forest and marks a dramatic departure from the museum’s previous cramped facility downtown. Dark rain clouds and cool weather couldn’t dampen spirits Tuesday as politicians and community leaders celebrated the long-awaited groundbreaking of the new Los Angeles Children’s Museum at Hansen Dam. After fundraising difficulties and lengthy delays, supporters launched work on the $43 million museum, touted as the first major cultural facility in the San Fernando Valley and an architecturally significant building on par with Disney Hall or the Getty Center. “I don’t know about you, but I’m borderline giddy today,” Council President and museum advocate Alex Padilla told the crowd. Despite the weather, the groundbreaking drew scores of neighbors, literati, local schools and well-known political figures such as Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and Caroline Kennedy – whose husband, Edwin Schlossberg, designed the museum exhibits. “What Walt Disney Hall is to music and the Getty Center is to art, the new Children’s Museum will be to Los Angeles’ kids and families,” Villaraigosa said. “No more parking tickets downtown,” joked Jennifer Lettelleir, the museum’s performing arts director. Indeed, she and Reading Edge literacy arts program director Kymberly Evans said they are eager to move into a state-of-the-art facility after five years on the road. “It’s going to be great. I’ve been traveling and seeing children’s museums around the country and this is going to be an amazing facility,” Evans said. The original museum closed its doors in 2000 with plans to build two new facilities – one in Little Tokyo and one at Hansen Dam. After a slow start in fundraising, the museum board dropped plans for the Little Toyko site to focus on the Hansen Dam site. The land is owned by the city and leased to the museum for $1 a year. Organizers are still raising $16.5 million for the museum’s exhibits and staffing, plus an additional $10 million for an endowment. San Fernando resident Robert Villafana said he was pleased the museum chose to move to the Northeast Valley, an area too often known for landfills and junkyards. “People say that the kids are the future, but you have to give them some positive images. This will give the kids something positive, something they can look forward to.” Kerry Cavanaugh, (818) 713-3746 [email protected] 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Herdboy, waiter, head chef

first_img22 June 2006In Shadrack Sihlangu’s first week as a trainee chef, he was told to “take some garlic .” and he didn’t know what it was. Sent to fetch fresh ginger, all he could think of were ginger biscuits.He was a source of great amusement to the kitchen staff. “The other chefs were laughing,” he says, “but Yvonne Short and Dumi Ndlovu didn’t. And I learned.”Short was operations manager at the Londolozi game lodge in Mpumalanga and the famous Ndlovu was head chef.Sihlangu, who must have seemed unpromising material to his peers, is now a head chef himself. He rules the kitchen at the super-luxurious, all-suite Little Bush Camp – the fourth and newest lodge of Londolozi’s equally famous neighbour, Sabi Sabi.Herdboy, schoolboyHe did not set out to be a chef. In fact, growing up in the small rural village of Somerset Trust, he had no particular goals at all, beyond getting his matric. But after what he went through to get to high school, matric was easy.Throughout his primary schooling, he had to tend his father’s extensive goat and cattle herd for half the week, sharing the chore with his older brother, Sandros. One week he would herd for three days and attend school for two; the next week, it would be reversed.Both brothers made it to high school and both got their matric. Sandros became a game ranger at Londolozi, and Shadrack went to work as a quality controller for a company that made shade cloth. But five years of checking for flaws were enough. His brother suggested that Shadrack join him and, in 1992, young Sihlangu got a job as a waiter.It wasn’t long before he noticed that one of the chefs was about his age. “I looked at him and thought, ‘How can he do a difficult thing like that?’,” he recalls. “I asked Yvonne Short and she said, ‘You’re welcome to come into the kitchen.’ I was still growing up, so I was learning quickly.”The Londolozi kitchenHe was started on cheese twists and courgette fritters – “small things. They took me step by step.” Trained by Ndlovu, who had him peeling potatoes and onions, and assembling ingredients for potjiekos, he watched how to cook red meat and white meat, and which sauces go with which kind of meat.Although Sihlangu knew nothing about cooking when he came into the Londolozi kitchen, the encouragement he received to try it was “part and parcel of our policy,” says Short, who has recently joined Pick ‘n Pay. “We employed rural people. You look for the right attitude, the sparkle in the eye, a quick warm smile, and then you go from there.“He was fantastic to work with,” Short adds. “Most chefs stay in the kitchen and never see people enjoying the food. But with Shadrack, he did the food in front of the guests. When you’re cooking in front of guests you become more involved, you take more responsibility.”Sihlangu gave a modest spin to his interaction to the guests. He says he would describe what was in the potjiekos, what was in the salad, what people liked and disliked. “Some people are not eating anchovies or garlic,” he explains.But there was a great deal more to it. “He had a real sense of hospitality,” says Short. “The joy of a happy satisfied guest having just enjoyed yummy food in front of a roaring fire under the stars is inspiring and rewarding.”In 1994, Sihlangu moved to Lodolozi’s Tombela lodge as chef de partie, working under head chef July Ngwenya. When Ngwenya resigned in 1999, Sihlangu was promoted to his position. He stayed there until 2002, when he became assistant head chef at a lodge called Selati, owned by Sabi Sabi.Head chefIn March this year, he was made head chef at a small guest lodge newly acquired by Sabi Sabi. And when he walked into the empty kitchen, it was, in a way, a homecoming. The lodge was Tombela, now renamed Little Bush Camp.The job was a major challenge. “There was nothing in the kitchen,” Sihlangu says. “There was no garden. We had to renew everything.” And they had to do it quickly, because guests were arriving soon.There are two chefs de partie working with Sihlangu in his spotless kitchen, and all of them do everything. There is quite a lot to do: three sumptuous meals a day, plus wake-up pastries before the morning and afternoon game drives and snacks for sundowners in the bush. Both the luncheon and dinner menus must include one dish of red meat and one of white. Everything is made in the kitchen, including muesli and rusks, cakes, biscuits, ice cream.Cooking gameThere is quite a lot of game on the menu, but it all comes from a supplier. When Sihlangu began back in the ’90s, “we were allowed to shoot impala, but we’re not allowed to shoot anymore. The guests are here to see the animals,” he points out, and not to eat them – or at least, not the animals they’ve been viewing from the back of an extended open Land Rover.Here’s how he does game: he marinates it in soy sauce, paprika, salt and pepper, a little bit of olive oil “and a drop of lemon juice, because it mustn’t taste like an animal. You marinate it for four to five hours. And you must serve it rare or medium rare. The more you cook game, the harder it becomes.”What he most likes to prepare is fillet – of impala, ostrich or beef. “It gives me results,” he says. And he also enjoys baking various flavours of creme caramel: vanilla, banana, orange. “It looks nice,” he says. “And it tastes nice.”And what does he like best to eat? “Roast chicken and chips – I can eat it for 30 days a month,” he says.FamilyIt seems an idyllic situation, head chef in an exclusive game lodge not far from his home, but there is a downside. His wife, Lindiwe Gumede, stayed in the kitchen at Selati when he moved to Little Bush Camp, but it’s not far by Land Rover.Somerset Trust, however, is 15 kilometres away, and they can only get there about once a month to see their three daughters, who stay in the family home with a housekeeper. “It’s hard to live away from the children,” he says, “especially as my eldest is in Grade 12 and starting to look at the boys. I don’t like that, but I’m at a distance.”The two older girls, Wendy and Adelaide, aren’t much interested in kitchens, but six-year-old Nandi is fascinated. “She is going to be a chef. I just feel it in my heart,” he says. “She really likes what I’m doing. When I have a chef’s hat on my head, she loves it a lot. And when I’m making chips in the kitchen, she likes it.“I think a star is born.” Want to use this article in your publication or on your website?See: Using SAinfo materiallast_img read more

Internet of Things (IoT) to Become More Deeply Embedded in 2019

first_imgAnurag Mehta has enhanced his career as a Digital Marketing Expert at Rigel Networks which is an IT Service Provider company with multiple presences across the globe. He has an excellent marketing skill and a strategic mind. Anurag Mehta plays a pivotal role in supporting expansion and growth of the company’s services and products. This year the Internet of Things (IoT) solution will profoundly get secured in our everyday lives at home as well as work. The term IoT itself used less frequently due to it’s moving out of the hype phase and quickly becoming an essential part of our life. The invention of this technology will change our style of living and work as it can get connected with any devices that we own. The Internet of Things (IoT) will become deeply embedded in 2019.For instance, IoT connects now, and will continue to connect all watches, cars, doors, and more can go online and communicate with each other. When it comes to organizations, tools and machinery are more intelligent and connected, generating data that drives efficiency, enabling new paradigms such as predictive maintenance to become a reality, rather than a pipe-dream.According to the market research analyst, there will be 26 billion connected devices across the globe by the end of 2019. Let us have a look at the prognostications as to how likely it will play out over the next coming months. As we frequently become used to the fact that the internet is not just something we connect to computers and smartphones, it is virtually anything that we can imagine.Devices become more modulated.The world has gone much advanced when it comes to technology. From smartphones to smart home devices like Alexa hub, or Siri, we are getting used to using the voices to control these devices. However, 2019 will be the year that the rest of our possessions find their voice. Practically speaking, every car manufacturer is working towards virtual assistants for conveniently operating vehicles while behind the wheel and assisting driver’s safety. Moreover, voice control will increasingly become an option for industrial and enterprise technology.In many ways, voice control makes sense as it is easy to operate requiring no manual input — and our eyes need not be open to watch for jeopardies. It also represents further removal of the communication restrictions between individuals and devices. Before user interfaces, graphical environments, and dashboards commenced came into existence, and we entirely relied on programming them with computer code — lessening the obstacles to entry. However, voice recognition and generation is the next logical step towards the making of technology that anyone can use to work more efficiently or enhance their lives.IoT development and deployment will frequently drive by Artificial Intelligence (AI). Artificial intelligence (AI) and IoT are almost allied areas of technology. As the technology internet of things generates an enormous amount of data, it proves to be useful and compelling to every organization as well as in human’s life. For instance, an industrial network having several devices talking to each other analyses mounds of data created is beyond the powers of humans.The primary task of AI within the Internet of Things environment is that the training machine learning algorithms to detect outliers in the data. This detection will indicate opportunities for efficiency or provide early warning of an imminent problem. Moreover, the networks of IoT grows in size and complexity, making them more self-reliant on new developments in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML). Further, through automated threat detection systems, AI plays a vital role in keeping IoT systems secure.Industries implementing IoT Deployments in 2019.The technology – Internet of Things not only plays a vital role in human life but also offers considerable benefits to businesses. For instance,  emitting information about products on display from mannequins that communicates with customers’ smartphones in retail environments.According to the research study by Forrester, in 2019, businesses will lead the surge in IoT adoption with 85% of organizations implementing or planning IoT deployments this year.Manufacturing industries proves to be a clear leader when it comes to the Internet of Things deployment. Looking into the research study, businesses throughout 2019 will flourish the value in connected machinery capable of communicating every detail of its operating parameters and efficiency to other smart, connected devices. Whether or not these solutions are useful, it will start to trickle down to smaller organized bodies, who are confident that their investments will pay off. Edge Computing.Algorithms that bounded at the ‘edges’ of a network refers to edge computing customarily at the point where the system touches the real world, like inside sensors and cameras. Given the fact, a considerable amount of data collected by these devices will be counterproductiveA good illustration 0f edge computing is the security camera. It transfers terabytes of video data to the cloud or a central server. However, the only data of any interest will be the few megabytes showing arousing suspicion or illicit activities.With devices being capable of carrying out their computation and not just dumbing down the information on to the processed in the cloud, networks then become less clogged with traffic. As a result, there is more computing power available for critical tasks. 5G Networks.The technology internet of things is reliant on speed and availability of data services. 2019 will see the switching-on of first consumer-ready 5G networks, that could operate to 20 times faster than current systems of mobile data. Talking about smart connected technology, some locations are effectively obscure in this period. Moreover, the scope of IoT projects can broaden dramatically with faster and stable mobile networks connected to homes and offices. Ideas such as the smart city, where civic amenities are networked, and data are analyzed to create cleaner, more efficient urban living environments become more viable. The technology used by self-driving, autonomous cars, and public transport vehicles will also greatly benefit from the increased bandwidth available.
