Reno ambush Waterhouse

first_imgWestern Bureau:Reno climbed to second in the 2015-16 Red Stripe Premier League standings, with a commanding 2-0 victory over Waterhouse in their rescheduled match at the Frome Sports Complex on Thursday.Rondell Morris got them under way with a penalty in the 20th minute before Afiba Chambers doubled the lead in the 65th.The win was Reno’s second of the season and follows Monday night’s 1-1 draw away to Harbour View. They are on seven points, two less than current leaders Portmore United.Assistant coach Michael Graham praised the fearlessness of his young brigade, adding that the experience of playing top teams early in the season will benefit the club.”We are improving with each and every game,” Graham pointed out.”It’s a very young team we have here, but we are playing excellent football at the moment and as we continue holding our own, especially defensively, we can only get better as the season progresses,” said Graham.Missed opportunitiesWaterhouse were unlucky themselves, coming close to scoring on a few occasions, mainly from set plays but a combination of stubborn defence and wayward shooting from the Waterhouse players let the former champions down.Graham wants to create a special atmosphere at Frome whenever teams visit.”Frome should be a fortress for FC Reno,” he said. “Visiting teams must feel real pressure and leave the complex empty-handed. That is what we need here to help the club progress in this league,” he added.Central defender Alburn Facey was once again like a rock at the back for Reno along with captain Morris.”These are clearly two very good defenders and we are delighted to have them in the team. Facey is young defender and he is very level-headed,” stated Graham.last_img read more

Rafferty like a new signing – Hayes

first_imgChelsea Ladies manager Emma Hayes says having England left-back Claire Rafferty fully fit after a full pre-season is as big a boost as any high-profile summer signing.Rafferty, Chelsea’s longest serving player, has suffered three anterior cruciate ligament injuries during her career.And although the 26-year-old played her part as Chelsea finished runners-up to Liverpool in last season’s Women’s Super League, the latest knee injury meant she did not have a full-pre season and did not return to first-team action until early May.Hayes told West London Sport: “It’s like having another new signing.“She is the best left-back in England and I am proud of the work she has done to get back to this level.“Last season we had to manage her training and her games but the priority was to make sure she has a long career and not overdo things too soon.”Chelsea begin their WSL campaign with an away game against Notts County at Meadow Lane on Sunday.See also:Chelsea relish passing game – RaffertyFollow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

Google’s Data Viz Winner Shows How Your Tax Dollars are Spent

first_img8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… sarah perez Tags:#Google#Government#web Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Related Posts center_img A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Just in time for tax day here in the U.S., Google’s Data Viz Challenge, a five-week developer competition, ended and the Grand Prize winner announced. The winning entry is called simply “Where Did My Tax Dollars Go?” and was created by Anil Kandangath. The Google-sponsored contest asked developers to use data visualization techniques to demonstrate how our federal income tax dollars are being spent. Over 40 developers submitted entries that offered everything from pie charts to bar graphs and more in order to make this complex data more accessible and understandable by everyday taxpayers.Curious to see how your tax dollars are spent? Check out the winning visualization below.The jury selected Kandangath’s entry as the winner because it is both “information-rich” and “elegantly designed,” wrote Jenny Ramaswamy of Google’s Creative Lab on The Official Google Blog, “and at no point while interacting with the visualization do you lose the big picture,” she said.You can launch the winning project from this page here to see it in more detail. The Data Viz Challenge was launched in February of this year in conjunction with Eyebeam, a not-for-profit art and technology center that served as the event host, and WhatWePayFor.com, a website that uses public data to estimate how tax money is spent. Andrew Johnson and Louis Garcia, who run WhatWePayFor, created an API (application programming interface) to provide developer access to their site’s data.The Grand Prize winner received $5,000 in prize money in addition to a timely mention on The Official Google Blog. Even if you’re not typically a data visualization enthusiast yourself, it’s hard not to be impressed (or perhaps, shocked), by the results. Google also created a showcase of all the entries in a short video that nicely demonstrates the creativity involved with this contest.last_img read more
