Were injury worries Migne in AFCON build up

No Comments on Were injury worries Migne in AFCON build up

PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluNAIROBI, Kenya, May 27 – Harambee Stars head coach Sebastien Migne is worried of the muscular injury picked up by speedy winger Paul Were just less than a week before the team departs for a three week residential camp in France ahead of the African Cup of Nations (AFCON) next month.Were came on as a second half substitute in AFC Leopards’ loss to Tusker FC on Sunday but lasted barely quarter of an hour before limping off. “I am just afraid because of Paul’s injury yesterday; maybe it will be huge problem for me because I want to have everyone available and ready to be well in terms of fitness for AFCON,” Migne told Capital Sport after Monday afternoon’s session.Were has however said he will be ready in the next two or three days as the injury wasn’t as serious.“I felt my muscles become tight and just for precaution, I decided to pull out because the task ahead is so big and I couldn’t carry on playing with a threat of getting a worse injury. I am sure I will be okay. I have rested today and probably tomorrow I will be in training,” a confident Were said.AFC Leopards winger Paul Were wheels away from bandari’s Duncan Otewa during their Kenyan Premier League match at the Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos on April 28, 2019.

The team visited the French embassy in Kenya later after training as they build up for the camp.Migne says he is impressed with the commitment shown by the platers in training and specifically singled out striker John Avire who travelled overnight from Sofapaka’s match against Bandari in Mombasa to make it for the Monday session.“We are getting better and better tactically and I am happy because I have an interesting group in terms of behavior. Avire played yesterday and still managed to come for training despite travelling overnight. He wants to show that he is ready and has a desire to do something good for himself and for the country,” the coach noted.He was boosted with the arrival of Belgium based midfielder Johanah Omollo who turns out for Cercle Brugge who joins Clifton Miheso, Musa Mohammed and Masud Juma among the foreign based players in camp.Harambee Stars winger Clifton Miheso vies for the ball with Cliff Nyakeya during a training session at the Moi Sports Centre Kasarani on May 27, 2019. PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluMost of the others are expected to link up with the team in Paris.On striker Masud Juma who has not been playing in Libya consistently because of the political situation in the North African country, Migne says the player still has a lot to work on ahead of the Cup of Nations to convince him to be included in the final 23-man squad.“What he showed since the last week is that he can score and it is important for a striker. His fitness is not so good but I have one month with him and he will travel to France. We will be 26 but then I will need to reduce to 23 and that means he has to prove to me he can score,” he said.Adding; “It is important to have that level required at an event like AFCON. He is on the way and I hope he will be ready. But he has the answer,” Migne stated.Harambee Stars head coach Sebastien Migne issues instructions to his players during a training session at the Moi Sports Centre Kasarani on May 27, 2019.

He became comfortable on the field and it is the reason I want to work with the locals more. There is a huge difference between the locals and foreign based players but I like their improvement and the willingness to learn,” he said.“If we can have at least one training session with the players every week I think there will be bigger improvement,” the coach noted.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

West Ham warned over Declan Rice contract: ‘Give him the money or he will leave’

No Comments on West Ham warned over Declan Rice contract: ‘Give him the money or he will leave’

first_img 1 West Ham have been told to show more loyalty to Declan Rice by giving him a contract he deserves, following reports the youngster has rejected a new deal with the Premier League club.The 19-year-old academy graduate has become a first-team regular at the London Stadium following a breakthrough campaign for the Hammers last season – making 31 appearances for the senior team.He has been voted the club’s Young Player of the Year for the last two seasons, and yet there are now doubts over his long-term future at West Ham.The club have been criticised for moving too slowly in tying the youngster down to a new contract, with Rice entering the final two years of his deal which currently sees him earn just £3,000-a-week.It is claimed West Ham are prepared to offer Rice around £15k per week to sign a new deal, but that fee is miles away from his advisers’ expectations. Rice impressed with his performance in Sunday’s 0-0 draw with unbeaten Chelsea at the London Stadium 💰 “There are kids at City and United who haven’t even played yet on more money than Declan Rice…🎲 …they must offer him more or it’s a big, big gamble.” 🗣️ Alan Brazil says #WHUFC must offer Declan Rice more than the reported £15,000-a-week or risk losing him!— The Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast (@SportsBreakfast) September 25, 2018“He’ll be going into the last 12 months of his contract in the summer and if you’ve got a young player who you believe in, you just don’t do that.“You shouldn’t really do that with any player – if you allow a player to go into the last two years of his contract, they hold all the cards and it becomes a big issue.“That’s West Ham problem for allowing that to happen with Declan Rice.”If Rice leaves, it would likely cause a big fan backlash, with some sure to turn their fury at the club but there are also those who will look at the player and accuse the youngster of a lack of loyalty.But Higginbotham says it works both ways, and has called for the Hammers to show more loyalty to their academy graduate and give him a contract he deserves after his breakthrough into the first-team.“One of the things I’ve seen is that, unfortunately and bizarrely, homegrown lads sometimes don’t get treated the way they should, because the club feels they have a hold on them,” the former defender added.“There’s no such thing as loyalty in football anymore, sadly.talkSPORT listeners believe Declan Rice should be happy with a £15k-a-week contract offer from West Ham…center_img Rice has thrived under new boss Manuel Pellegrini this season, moving from defence to a defensive midfield role to great effect and impressing with outstanding performances in his last two games – a 3-1 win over Everton and a 0-0 draw with Chelsea.And former Premier League defender-turned-pundit Danny Higginbotham believes West Ham run the risk of losing the youngster to a rival club if they don’t stump up the money – saying it’s their own fault for allowing his contract to run down.Speaking on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast, the ex-Southampton and Stoke star said: “You have to put it in perspective – yes 15k-a-week is a lot of money, but it’s not in football and not in the Premier League.“A lot of other clubs would be willing to double that – that’s the problem for West Ham.“West Ham should have started contract negotiations a while ago, because the player holds all the cards now. Declan Rice has made 18 Premier League starts for #WHUFC and impressed this season……but has reportedly turned down around £15k-a-week contract offer from the club 📝So, we’re asking:Is £15,000-a-week enough for a 19-year-old playing regularly in the Premier League? 🤔— The Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast (@SportsBreakfast) September 25, 2018“People go on about players being more loyal to clubs, but it’s a two-way street and if a club doesn’t want you, they will soon get rid of you no matter what you’re earning.“That’s just football now.”Listen back to Danny Higginbotham on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast IN FULL above!last_img read more

Dairy facts for dairy month

No Comments on Dairy facts for dairy month

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest The National Milk Producers Federation is pointing out some key facts about U.S. dairy in observance of National Dairy Month in June. The state of the industryTotal domestic consumption of milk has risen four of the past five years and reached a record in 2018.While per-capita milk U.S. consumption has declined, consumption of non-fluid dairy products such as cheese have increased, with butter last year at its highest per-capita consumption in more than 50 years.U.S. dairy export volumes reached a record in 2018, increasing 9% over the prior year despite stiff trade winds. The value of U.S. exports was $5.59 billion, 2% more than the prior year, despite trade disturbances that to date have cost farmers at least $2.3 billion in revenues. Sustainability and animal welfareThe U.S. dairy industry contributes approximately two percent of total U.S. greenhouse gas emissions — the lowest average GHG intensity of milk production worldwide.Fruits and vegetables, grains, and dairy are roughly equal in greenhouse-gas emissions.Through the leadership of NMPF’s National Dairy Farmers Assuring Responsible Management (FARM) Program, which includes 98% of the U.S. milk supply, U.S. dairy producers are the first livestock animal care program in the world to be recognized for its animal welfare standards. FARM gained that recognition last year from the International Organization for Standardization, founded by the UN. Consumer choiceMilk is consumers’ dominant choice compared compared to plant-based competitors. In a typical week, U.S. consumers buy more than 65 million gallons of milk, compared to about 6 million gallons of plant-based beverages. Milk also costs about 40% less, according to consumer sales and pricing data.Milk is a key source of nine essential nutrients crucial to a healthy diet. And, finally …Milk is the product of a lactating animal, per the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s unenforced rules.last_img read more

80% of US Consumers Won’t Pay For Online Content

No Comments on 80% of US Consumers Won’t Pay For Online Content

first_imgAccording to a new Forrester survey, almost 80% of Internet users in the US and Canada would not pay for access to newspaper and magazine websites. Those users who would consider paying for content are mostly interested in subscriptions. Only a very small number of consumers is interested in making micropayments (3%). The study also asked which distribution channel consumers would prefer if their favorite print publications ceased to exist. 37% preferred the web, 14% mobile phones and 11% would prefer to read the content on their laptops or netbooks. 10% would prefer PDFs delivered by email and 3% would read the content on their e-readers. 44% of all respondents said that they wouldn’t be interested in getting their print content through any of these delivery mechanisms. Tags:#news#NYT#web Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Who Is Willing to Pay?Forrester’s Sarah Rotman Epps took a closer look at the demographic profile of those users who said that they would be willing to pay. Gender and marital status had no influence on a consumer’s willingness to pay. Those who are willing to pay for magazine content are slightly younger that those who won’t (43 years vs. 47). For newspaper content, however, there was no difference. Income, too, only makes a small difference. Those with a higher income are slightly more likely to pay for newspaper content than for magazines.The report concludes that there is no consensus among consumers about how they want content delivered to them. The fact that 10% still prefer PDFs clearly shows that we are still in a transitional period. What is clear, though, is that consumers aren’t very willing to pay for content online. According to Forrester, publishers have two options: continue to offer a free, ad-supported product or offer consumers “a choice of multichannel subscriptions, single-channel subscriptions, and micropayments for premium product access.” As Rotman Epps also notes, there is a third solution: have a third party subsidize the cost of the content. This could be a device manufacturer who wants to offer exclusive content, for example.
