Birmingham to be named 2022 Commonwealth Games hosts

first_img0Shares0000Flagbearers of the Commonwealth Games Federation display the flag during the opening ceremony of the 2014 Commonwealth Games at Celtic Park in Glasgow on July 23, 2014 © AFP/File / ANDREJ ISAKOVICLondon, United Kingdom, Dec 20 – Birmingham is set to be announced as the host of the 2022 Commonwealth Games after Durban was stripped of the event in March, according to reports Wednesday.The Games were originally awarded to Durban in 2015 but the South African city had the event taken away for financial reasons. That led to a shortened bidding contest that came down to a race for British government funding between Birmingham and Liverpool, which was won by the central English city in September.Despite being the only city to submit a bid by the Commonwealth Games Federation’s (CGF) deadline of the end of September, Birmingham has had to wait nearly three months to have its victory confirmed.The city’s initial proposal was judged to be not “fully compliant” with a further delay as the CGF sought further guarantees over funding from Birmingham and the British government.Confirmation of Birmingham as 2022 hosts is due to be made at a press conference in the city on Thursday morning.The Games are open to countries that are members of the Commonwealth, a collection of nations and territories that were mainly once part of the British empire.The 2018 Games will be staged on Australia’s Gold Coast.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

KCB beat Talanta to earn return to KPL

first_imgThe three points will ensure KCB’s final match against Nairobi Stima next weekend will be a mere formality.The bankers moved to 75 points in the National Super League (NSL) standings, eight ahead of third placed Nairobi Stima who will be playing Kenya Police in the other NSL match later Sunday.“I am really pleased to have scored today in such an important match to help the team get back to the league. It was a tough match but we knew when we get one goal, things will be easy. I can’t really explain how it feels because we have fought for this so much,” goal scorer Gicheru said.KCB FC defender Dennis Gicheru celebrates after scoring for KCB during their National Super League tie against FC Talanta at the Camp Toyoyo Ground on October 7, 2018.

Over the last three years we have come very close but lost it in the final four games. This time round, we were very serious in every game and we did not underrate anyone,” Ayany pointed out.After being frustrated by a high defending Talanta, coached by former KCB boss Abdallah Juma, the bankers upped the tempo in the second half.On the hour mark, they came inches close when Samuel Mwangi’s venomous strike from distance was finger tipped over the bar by Talanta keeper Joel Bataro.KCB FC midfielder Samuel Mwangi strides forward during his side’s National Super League tie against FC Talanta at the Camp Toyoyo Ground on October 7, 2018.

Looking for a Ride to SXSW? Get on the Startup Bus

first_imgRelated Posts 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Tags:#news#web Why hop a plane to SXSW this year when you can get on a bus? Okay, let’s rephrase that – why hop a plane when you can get on a bus with 20-something other folks, drive across country, and try to formulate a viable startup idea along the way?At least that’s the idea behind the Startup Bus, the brainchild of Elias Bizannes, which is now in its second, vastly expanded incarnation.The idea, which started out as “a half serious but fully beer-infused joke about driving an RV to SXSW 2010 with a bunch of friends and hacking on the way” has turned into a full-on country-wide competition this year. Bizannes says that the idea is not only to potentially create potential businesses, but to create collaboration and community among entrepreneurs.“Successful startups come from good people. And good people build rapport by collaborating together,” said Bizannes. “While I don’t doubt some real businesses will come out of this, the real value is the fact these strangers work together and get to know each other”This year’s competition is ramping up to include up to six buses, with six teams per bus and more than 150 people total. Right now, Bizannes says buses are definitely leaving from San Francisco, New York and Cleveland, with Chicago, Miami and Los Angeles all penciled in as possible departure points. The basic idea then is that all of these people hop on a bus, self-organize into teams, and build a functional website or prototype to present to a panel of judges when they arrive in Austin two days later. Waiting at the finish line will be Josh Baer, from Austin’s startup incubator Capital Factory, looking for potential opportunities.“Last year, people actually launched with products that would be considered real web services had you not known,” said Bizannes. “I think everyone was shocked how much coding you can do on a bus in 48 hours.”Bizannes says that Xero has signed on as a sponsor, so the plan is full steam ahead, but some details, such as the exact departure cities, still need to be ironed out. So how do you get in on the road-tripping, brainstorming, startup-forming fun? Sign in on the Startup Bus website using your Facebook login and hope someone in your community has an invite. If you’re not connected to the right community, says Bizannes, then helping to spread the word about it through Twitter could help get an invite. Getting on the bus, as it were, isn’t only about the competition – it’s about the community that can form afterward.“I want to turn this into a community, where the initiation rite is being on the bus and you tap into this rich alumni community of founders, startup enthusiasts, and talent,” said Bizannes. “So, we have plans of creating a private community website after that would have things like a job board.”center_img mike melanson Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai…last_img read more

Deaf Sports Day A Success

first_imgOn Wednesday, 19 June, the third annual Active Deaf Kids Sports Day took place at Belconnen Stadium, Canberra, with the event attended by Federal Minister for Sport, Kate Lundy.The day looked to raise awareness of Deaf Sports Australia and encourage children with hearing impairments to participate in sport. The day allowed the children that attended to participate in various sports clinics, including one run by Touch Football ACT.Senator Lundy gave a short speech over morning tea which recognised Touch Football ACT, along with several other sporting organisations, for their work with Deaf Sports Australia.She also implored the kids present to get involved in sport, pointing towards both the health and friendship advantages that participating brings.“[There are] wonderful benefits of playing sport. Being fit and active is part of it, but also sport is something that unites us all,” she said.The event was also the forum for an announcement that $60,000 extra funding would be put forward by the Federal Government to go towards deaf sports stars attending the Deaf Olympics.Related LinksDeaf Sports Daylast_img read more

Tonight he did that. “Really, he deserved it because he is very humble, a humble player and he fights, he is hungry to have that opportunity to help us and really it was perfect, his work tonight.” About the authorFreddie TaylorShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more
