first_imgWDFA Qualifier KO Tournament 2018…The Golden Warriors FC and Crane Rovers FC secured victories in the opening matches of the Guyana Football Federation/West Demerara Football Association (GFF/WDFA) Qualifier knockout tournament held at the Den Amstel Community Centre Ground.After the referee blew his whistle to commence the match, Golden Warriors pummelled Zeelugt 7-2 while the feature match between Crane Rovers FC and Vegae Boyz ended with Crane demolishing Vegae Boyz 9-0.Within the first seven minutes of the game, Zeelugt FC’s Andrew Gill found the back of the net giving his team an early lead, which did not last long as the Warriors’ Nigel Garraway equalised in the 13th minute. Three minutes later, Garraway’s teammate Anthony Harding converted his opportunity in the 16th minute and went on to score his second goal just before the end of the first half in the 44th minute taking the score to 3-1.Upon resumption of play, Harding booted in his third goal in the 49th minute, advancing the scoreline 4-1 as the dominance of possession continued for his side. But Harding wasn’t finished yet as he broke through the defence of Zeelugt in the 52nd minute making the score 5-1. Shaquale Baptist then got his shot past the Zeelugt custodian to increase the score to 6-1 in the 55th minute.Three minutes later, Shalon Williams placed his name on the score sheet. With the score now at a 7-1 margin, the Zeelugt players kept searching for goals. Zeelugt managed to slip one through when Clement Smith got his opportunity and made it worthwhile, scoring his team’s second goal in the 60th minute to have the scoreline read 7-2. That scoreline was to remain as the Golden Warriors defence was just too much for the Zeelugt players.After one intense match, the bar was raised as Crane Rovers proved too tough for the Boyz, who they trampled 9-0. Goals came from Quincy Graham in the 6th and 41st minutes, Adam Hoyte in the 11th minute with support from Clement Brown in the 43rd, Denford Williams in the 47th and 55th minutes, and Tyler Wharton in the 50th minute. Alonzo Bowman and Clifton Adams netted in the 58th and 33rd minutes respectively.Member Associations were mandated by the GFF to have the two top clubs represent the Association in the upcoming year-end football festival, which is set to commence in late November. Pouderoyen, Uitvlugt, Eagles and Wales United were seeded into the top four grouping while the other eight clubs will play off to meet the top clubs in the quarter-finals.The tournament will continue this weekend at the Wales Community Centre Ground and will see Jetty Gunners facing Beavers on Saturday at 14:00h.

first_img Pluto TVPluto TV is rapidly gaining momentum as a competitive player on the OTT block. It’s completely free to consumers and available on all major devices. Pluto TV delivers more than 100 TV channels and an on-demand library with thousands of free movies. It’s premised on the “lean back” TV experience and equipped with traditional TV features, including an online program guide and channel-surfing capabilities. Being free and full of premium programming, it’s easy to attract existing OTT fans and those new to the space.Pluto TV offsets the cost of the viewer experience by offering ad-supported commercials, similar to those executed by traditional cable and broadcast networks today. It includes established networks like NBC News, CBSN, Food TV, and Fox Sports, as well as popular internet channels including Cheddar, PopSugar, WPT, and People TV. The brand recently struck deals with major studios, including MGM and Warner Brothers, and has earned its place as a sought-after advertising outlet for marketers looking to reach cord cutters. Pluto TV has been called the “best cord-cutting app,” and Digital Trends said, “It doesn’t seem like Pluto TV will be going anywhere.” Uber vs Lyft: Battling for Supremacy HuluHulu is a paid subscription streaming service that offers both ad-supported and commercial-free subscription packages. It offers an extensive library of premium TV and film content, with options for live and on-demand channels and a slate of original series. Hulu secures some of the highest commercial pricing in the industry and is consistently sold out. A recent deal with The Walt Disney Company aims to give Hulu the flexibility afforded to its closest competitors, Netflix and Amazon Prime Video. Unlimited access to the Hulu streaming library is $7.99 per month; Hulu with Live TV costs $39.99 per month.Hulu has generated significant amounts of buzz with its original show “The Handmaid’s Tale,” which helped it earn critical acclaim, a dozen coveted Hollywood awards, and worldwide recognition for its original programming. In early 2018, Hulu reported that it had 17 million subscribers and, despite a revenue loss in 2017, was able to capture $1 billion in ad revenue — something that makes an irrefutable case for the shifting of advertising dollars toward OTT. RokuRoku has marked itself as a trailblazer in the world of OTT with its affordable hardware and easy-to-use interface. In addition to its devices, Roku offers a robust variety of ad-supported and subscription-based content channels. Roku’s streaming players connect directly to TVs, and the service can also be accessed by smart TVs with built-in Roku. The service offers access to more than half a million TV episodes and movies, as well as Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Pluto TV, Google Play, Hulu, and the major four broadcast networks. Recently, Roku launched its own app called The Roku Channel, full of ad-supported movies and TV shows. While The Roku Channel itself is free, the streaming players start at a cost of $29.99 for the hardware.Roku went public in September 2017 after seeking an IPO valuation of $100 million. The bulk of the brand’s revenue comes from its Roku players, but it’s seen its customer lifetime value nearly double in a two-year span; it relies on a mix of streaming subscriptions, licensing partnerships, and advertising, all of which have led to brands migrating to Roku from traditional TV buys. The company has seen a number of competitors enter the player fray since its inception, but Fortune noted in 2017 that Roku “is doing better than Google and Apple,” thanks to its OS-agnostic device. This is just one of the many reasons advertising revenue is finding its way to Roku.Cutting the cord has earned its place in the mainstream, and brands are vying to influence the viewing habits of an ever-increasing OTT audience across the United States. These three OTT brands have all developed rich, intuitive platforms for CMOs to direct their ad spend and earn back their market share and sales. The numbers are in, and it’s evident that streaming stands to get a lot more lucrative — for both streaming companies and their advertisers.

By the end of 2017, more than 22 million people had dropped their cable or satellite TV providers; millions more have chosen not to sign up for cable or satellite TV services at all.A slew of recent industry reports have shown that Americans are actively in pursuit of new ways to consume entertainment. According to eMarketer, their reasons for cutting the cord are primarily based on factors related to price and convenience. eMarketer also projects that within the next three years, the number of people who have never subscribed to paid television services will equal the number of people who have abandoned it. All in all, a whopping one out of three Americans is expected to forgo cable or satellite as the primary source of content viewing by 2021.These trends present a challenge to brands and agencies. How do you reach the third of the audience no longer watching traditional TV?Don’t worry; it’s not all doom and gloom. Historically speaking, mediums have constantly been disrupted; with that disruption, they improve. More options means more fragmentation. And better technology means better data, better targeting, and, in turn, better performance. That’s not to mention the access to tools that allow for experimentation with creative that was once limited only to those with big budgets and third-party resources.Looking back at the transformation from radio to television, from the internet to mobile, from dot-coms to social media — and now from TV to OTT services — there’s clear evidence that industry evolution can prove to be exactly what a brand needs to take it to the next level.Looking forward, these are three established OTT companies, employing unique and distinctive business models, that are currently winning the battle for viewers’ attention while attracting advertisers’ dollars. 4 Ways You Can Make Your Workplace an Engine of…last_img read more

This area is called the epidural space.ESI is not the same as epidural anesthesia given just before childbirth or certain types of surgery.Alternative NamesESI; Spinal injection for back pain; Back pain injectionDescriptionYou will be asked to change into a gown.You will then lie face down on an x-ray table with a pillow under your stomach. If this position causes pain, you will be asked to either sit up or lie on your side in a curled position.The health care provider cleans the area of your back where the needle will be inserted. Medicine may be used to numb the area. You may be given medicine to help you relax.The doctor inserts a needle into your back. The doctor will likely use an x-ray machine that produces real-time pictures to help guide the needle to the correct spot in your lower back.A mixture of steroid and numbing medicines are injected into the area. This medicine decreases swelling and pressure on the larger nerves around your spine and helps relieve pain.You may feel some pressure during the injection, but most of the time the procedure is not painful. It is important not to move during the procedure because the injection needs to be very precise.You will be watched for 15 to 20 minutes after the injection before going home.advertisementWhy the Procedure Is PerformedYour doctor may recommend ESIif you have pain that spreads from the lower spine to the hips or down the leg (radicular low back pain). This pain is caused by pressure on a nerve as it leaves the spine, most often due to a bulging disc.ESI isused only when your pain has not improved with medicines, physical therapy, or other nonsurgical treatments.RisksESI is generally safe.

first_imgAbout the authorFreddie TaylorShare the loveHave your say Newcastle striker Rondon: I chose number 9 for Shearer pressureby Freddie Taylor10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveSalomon Rondon has revealed he chose the number nine jersey at Newcastle on purpose. The Venezuelan has been in excellent form for the Magpies, who he joined from West Bromwich Albion on loan in the summer. Rondon has always wore the number 23 jersey during his career, but he revealed that he enjoys the pressure of wearing the jersey previously worn by club legend and the Premier League’s all-time top goalscorer Alan Shearer.”It was a peculiar story,” Rondon said.”The ’23’ was free, my number of always, and the ‘9’. One of the people who closed the transfer told me: ‘The ‘9’ is a very important number at Newcastle because it was led by Shearer, who is the club’s top scorer and the history of the Premier League. If you dare to wear it, it will be fine. ‘ And so it has been.”It is a pressure that pleases me. I work well on pressure because it is where one more demands and is forced to give the maximum.”We exchanged some tweets, but personally I still do not know (Shearer). I would love it (to meet him), not only for what it has been at Newcastle, but for what it has represented for football.” last_img read more

And Danijel says the club should accept after paying 20m to sign his brother from Stoke City in the summer of 2017.He said: “West Ham bought Marko for peanuts. They paid £20m for him, which is nothing in the current market.”They bought him to keep them in the Premier League last season and he did that.

It is his great desire that West Ham accept the offer from China.”He knows the West Ham fans love him and he has a special connection with them, but things move on, this is the world of sport, and he hopes they can understand.”Marko is professional and is preparing himself for the Arsenal game. He will give 100 per cent for West Ham. That is Marko. He will never change.”Until he is no longer a West Ham player, he will give everything to the club.

He did well, it’s the first game he played.”He has a lot of experience and personality. What he says, the people follow him in the locker room.”He added: “He is a player who can play many positions and has a good personality – that’s why he is so important for us.
