Frustrated Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger was critical of his team’s defending following their 3-3 draw at home to Fulham.The Gunners were two up before their defensive lapses helped the Whites storm back and take the lead.Olivier Giroud’s equaliser rescued a point for Arsenal and they would have had more had Mikel Arteta been able to convert a last-gasp penalty.But Wenger said: “You cannot blame Mikel for that. It is part of the game.“The positive is we can score goals but the negative is we have conceded three at home. Defensively, that wasn’t a historically good performance.“We were most guilty on the corner – 2-0 up and nobody to jump for the ball at all. That of course when you play at home doesn’t often happen.“It’s frustrating. We have to just keep working on it.”See also:Schwarzer’s save secures point for FulhamMixed feelings for Fulham boss 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 Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebook

According to The Next Web, the Google Wave team is getting ready to open up its servers for federation. This announcement may come as early as today.The Google Wave we see today is only one part of what Wave is all about. Wave is also an open protocol that allows different Wave providers to run their own Wave servers. These are not just stand-alone Wave servers for internal use in a company, however. This protocol gives Wave providers the ability to exchange messages between different servers that are running Wave-based services, just like different email providers can pass emails back and forth thanks to standardized email protocols. Update: A Google spokesperson just told us that the company will have more news about the launch of the Wave federation program early next week – not today.What The Google Wave Federation Looks LikeThe Wave team likes to compare Wave to email – and just like email, Wave users will be able to exchange messages and share waves with Wave users on different servers. Right now, Google is the only Wave provider on the market. This will soon change. Wave providers will be able to use the Wave federation protocol to share updates and users only have to know the other users’ wave address. A wave address looks just like an email address:

Culture is identity.A leader creates, nurtures, and protects a healthy culture. A healthy culture is built on caring.A leader may also create, nuture, and protect an unhealthy, diseased culture. Unhealthy cultures are built on fear.When a leader doesn’t create, nuture, and protect a healthy culture, an unhealthy culture can take root and grow on its own. A leader has to pull out by its roots any threat to the culture.When a culture is strong and healthy, a leader doesn’t need to remove the threats. Culture is self-policing. A strong, healthy culture rejects anyone and anything that undermines their positive values and sense of identity. But a weak, diseased culture destroys anything that tries to change or improve it–especially when it means giving up a diseased mindset.Establishing culture is the leader’s duty. Culture is purpose; it’s meaning.

About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Kilbane still unimpressed by Man Utd midfielder Pogbaby Paul Vegas9 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveFormer Everton defender Kevin Kilbane remains unimpressed by Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba.United travel to Wembley to face Spurs in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s first big test at 4.30pm.”It’s all very well strutting his stuff now Jose Mourinho is gone – Paul Pogba needs to show he’s not a one trick pony today,” Kilbane told the Daily Mail.”He could be one of the Premier League’s best midfielders but he is quite obviously a weak player who needs someone to tell him how good he is all the time, before he can perform.”Clearly Mourinho was not the ideal manager to get the best out of the Frenchman. “But then the former United and Chelsea boss has shown little sympathy for dozens of mavericks or pretty average players throughout his career.”The relationship between the two was poison but while Pogba is undoubtedly very talented, and now a World Cup winner, he has been really poor and remarkably inconsistent in this second spell at Old Trafford.”
About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Brighton striker Aaron Connolly mixed emotions for Republic of Ireland debutby Paul Vegas12 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveBrighton striker Aaron Connolly was left frustrated with his Republic of Ireland debut.The 19-year-old Albion striker went off the bench with just 11 minutes remaining of the Euro 2020 qualifier in Georgia.He had two chances to score, forcing a solid save from keeper Giorgi Loria and then firing into the side-netting in a cameo which lit up an otherwise attritional 0-0 Group D draw in Tbilisi.Connolly said: “Like every striker, I feel I have to score that at 0-0 in a game like that. I should have scored. It’s disappointing, but I feel proud as well.”The confidence levels are quite high because of last week (scoring twice against Tottenham) and I felt if I came on, I would make an impact.”I feel like I did but I feel like I should have scored as well. It’s disappointing.”
Ohio State’s 2014 football team received its national championship rings this morning. There are, of course, many benefits to wearing a championship ring: they look cool, they go with everything and they remind people that you are a national champion. There’s a downside, though: they hurt your video-game skills. You know how hard it is to win a FIFA game with this ring on? Feel me @jbbigbear we just take it for granted without it— Joe Burger (@jburgs37) March 27, 2015Perhaps the people who design the national championship rings should figure out a way to make them lighter so it’s easier to score goals in FIFA.
Story Highlights The JVCP was established by the Development Bank of Jamaica (DBJ) in 2013 to provide micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) with access to alternative equity financing. A total of $34 billion (approximately US$265 million) was raised over the last four years from equity fund investments facilitated under the Jamaica Venture Capital Programme (JVCP). A total of $34 billion (approximately US$265 million) was raised over the last four years from equity fund investments facilitated under the Jamaica Venture Capital Programme (JVCP).The JVCP was established by the Development Bank of Jamaica (DBJ) in 2013 to provide micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) with access to alternative equity financing.Coordinator of the JVCP, Audrey Richards, says the out-turn, which was generated through four regional fund facilities, includes $13 billion (US$98 million) raised from Jamaican investors.She was speaking at the launch of the 2019 National Business Model Competition for tertiary institutions, at The Jamaica Pegasus hotel in New Kingston on Wednesday (February 27).Mrs. Richards said $7 billion (US$56 million) of the sum raised has been invested in 20 Jamaican businesses, so far, while noting that local angel investors have also invested $188 million in another 12 entities.Angel investors provide capital for business start-ups, usually in exchange for convertible debt or ownership equity.Mrs. Richards said these developments suggest that the Jamaican equities markets “are beginning to come into their own” and that private equity, as an asset class, has “gained traction” locally.“Entrepreneurs and Jamaican businesses are now more receptive [of] equity financing. Issues of risk-taking and sharing of ownership were not [previously] part of the general national psyche. However, I think more people are becoming attuned to what it means to be an equity partner. Local capital market players are now willingly including private equity and other alternative investments in their portfolios,” she added.The DBJ established the Jamaica Venture Capital Programme in 2013 with technical assistance and financial support from the Inter-American Development Bank’s Multilateral Investment Fund (MIF)Activities supported under the JVCP represent a new approach by the DBJ to create sustainable development of Jamaica’s venture capital industry.This, by focusing on establishing an ecosystem conducive to venture capital development through partnerships with private-sector interests on projects that impact entrepreneurs, fund managers and investors.Mrs. Richards said other developments under the JVCP include 560 fund managers, investors and lawyers being trained and enlightened on the tenets of private equity and venture capital investments.The National Business Model Competition, which is organised through the JVCP, promotes and encourages student entrepreneurship on the campuses of local tertiary institutions.This year’s sixth staging is slated for The Knutsford Court Hotel in New Kingston from March 21 to 22.The event is jointly staged by the Development Bank of Jamaica and the Private Sector Organisation of Jamaica (PSOJ). Coordinator of the JVCP, Audrey Richards, says the out-turn, which was generated through four regional fund facilities, includes $13 billion (US$98 million) raised from Jamaican investors.
City Hearts: Kids Say Yes to the Arts, the non-profit Arts organization that has been reaching out to at-risk children for almost 30 years, is pleased to announce that Max Adler (Glee’s Dave Karofsky, Switched at Birth’s Miles Conroy) will kick off Fresh Focus 2014 – setting in motion two very different online auction websites (Bidding for Good and Charity Buzz) October 1st at noon.He will also kick off the in-person event at The Stagecoach Ranch, Old Topanga Canyon Road, Topanga, CA on Sunday October 19th from 2:30 pm to 5 pm.“As a young man starting out, I joined an amazing talented theater troupe and performed classical plays around Los Angeles,” says Adler. “Several of the troupe knew about Sherry and Bob Jason and City Hearts. I visited the program and saw for myself the amazing talent emerging from their Shakespeare program. I felt that if I could in any way help City Hearts and the hundreds of kids in Los Angeles who otherwise might never be exposed to Art or Shakespeare or Photography or Dancing, I could not help but get involved. As I watch these inner-city students become more confident, opinionated, and talkative – and see the light behind their eyes come back and their zest for life return, I know that they will take this into the world with them. It’s an amazing thing to witness.”Adler has channeled much of his City Hearts energy into his Anti-Bullying campaign. “Through my character on Glee, I have really analyzed bullying under a microscope, and have talked with many experts as well as people who have experienced bullying. City Hearts helps me to bring awareness to kids that it’s totally OK to be who you are and to be original. That if someone is bullying you, it’s because they have their own issues and insecurities. I see a dynamic change as young people go through the various City Hearts programs. Not only are they having an intense artistic learning experience, but they’re also becoming more confident in themselves and in their outlook for the future.”“It is important to me to keep this program alive and growing,” Adler adds. “That’s why I became involved in their yearly Fundraiser – Fresh Focus: The Story Behind the Shot I’ve seen the amazing photography that has been donated. I’m honored to be able to kick off their online auction and will be there to join with both the photographers and photography collectors at the event on October 19th. It promises to be a fun setting and a great afternoon. Most importantly, this is a way to really help and support City Hearts emotionally and financially, so that Sherry and Bob Jason and the wonderful people behind City Hearts can continue to help kids in these incredible Arts programs – and help change their lives for the better and forever.”After over 29 years of working tirelessly to bring the arts to at-risk children, Sherry Jason’s enthusiasm for her work is as fresh as the day, as a new lawyer, she heard a 13-year-old piano prodigy play Mozart by year. A 13-year-old who had just been convicted of murder. It was then that she and her husband Bob formulated the desire to reach at-risk children – before the damage was done. Today, City Hearts: Kids Say Yes to the Arts continues to provide free classes in photography, Shakespeare, Dance and Music to Skid Row, Inner City and at-greatest-risk children.For tickets, click here.
