Sudan, Rwanda book Cecafa semi slots

first_img0Shares0000DAR-ES-SALAAM, Tanzania, December 5- Sudan and Rwanda stormed into the semi finals of the CECAFA Senior Challenge Cup on Monday in contrasting styles.In the first quarterfinal of Sudan, who ended Harambee Stars interest in the tournament dimmed the determined run of surprise package Burundi by handing them a 2-0 defeat. The team, full of confidence befitting the only CECAFA nation strolled through their opponents emphatically to book their place in the last four.On account of earlier good performances Burundi were deemed by some as a possible banana skin for Sudan but their experienced players led by example, going about the business of scuttling all of their strategies.Amir Abdelnabi and Musa Mohammed scored on either side of half time. After 70 minutes, the Sudanese were down to 10 men, following the dismissal of Nagmeldin Abdalla, but they had already imposed themselves on the match and there was no comeback for Burundi.But Burundi blew the chance to hang on to hope by missing a penalty kick.In the second match at the National Stadium, Rwanda left it late to see off the determined challenge of islanders Zanzibar.Jean Baptiste Mugiraneza opened the scoring in the 39th before Abulrahaman Mohammed levelled the scores just after the break.Zanzibar were on course of serving a huge upset until the boot of Meddie Kagere came to the rescue in the 88th when he delivered a scorching winner that finally neutered the sting from The Wasps.The Amavubi Stars who went through their group with a perfect winning record thus continued underlining their status as one of the favourites for the title.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Cardiff City hit by transfer embargo for rest of the January transfer window

first_img Russel Slade Cardiff have been placed under a Sky Bet Football League transfer embargo for a breach of Financial Fair Play rules.The embargo will be in place for the rest of the January transfer window and will see them lose out on a permanent deal for £1million target Tony Watt, although the Charlton striker’s loan deal could be extended after their Championship visit to Wolves on Saturday.Cardiff, who were relegated from the Barclays Premier League at the end of the 2013-14 season, say they “have complied with the FFP requirements for season 2014-15 – contrary to the League’s position”.Bluebirds boss Russell Slade has significantly reduced playing costs since being appointed in October 2014, with the club’s biggest earners having been moved on.“Whilst extremely disappointed that the Football League has decided to take this action, we will remain co-operative and compliant with the League’s position in respect of Financial Fair Play,” said a Cardiff statement.“Having fully disclosed all matters in respect of our FFP position for 2014-15 and having taken independent expert advice, it is our firmly-held view that Cardiff City Football Club has indeed complied with the FFP requirements for season 2014-15 -contrary to the League’s position.“As such, further advice will be sought, prior to a decision being made internally as to whether or not an appeal will be lodged.“The embargo, now in place (albeit subject to possible appeal), will stay in effect for the remainder of the January 2016 transfer window.“Cardiff City Football Club again expects to trade within the set FFP limits for 2015/16 and therefore anticipates full participation in the summer 2016 transfer window.” 1last_img read more

CHP puts heat on errant drivers

first_imgIn 2002, 1,411 people were killed in DUI crashes on our state’s roadways. In 2004, that number had risen to 1,462. The CHP wants the public to help curb drunk driving, with Caltrans signs on the highway and in rest stops saying “Report Drunk Drivers Call 9-1-1.” ——— “We’re focusing on that all summer long. We want to drive that home.” – Officer Henry Ross, Antelope Valley CHP160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! LANCASTER – California Highway Patrol officials are promising to crack down on motorists who speed, drive while drunk or don’t wear seat belts. In an effort called “Summer of Heat,” CHP officers in the Antelope Valley and around California will aggressively look for those three traffic-law violations, which CHP Commissioner Mike Brown called the three main causes of deaths on California roads. “We’re focusing on that all summer long. We want to drive that home,” said Antelope Valley CHP spokesman Officer Henry Ross. Last year, 4,200 people died on California roads, and CHP statistics show that July and August are traditionally the deadliest months, Brown said.

Focusing CHP officers’ attention on these three areas helped drop California’s death rate per 100 million miles driven by 48 percent between 1985 and 2005, Brown said. According to statistics from The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 92.5 percent of Californians wear seat belts. But this past year, speeding citations increased by 10 percent, due in part to increased enforcement on certain targeted roadways where speed has proved to be a special problem. Drunk-driving deaths are going up. last_img

Snapchat Wants You To Stop Using Third Party Apps

Usually, third-party programs are perfectly secure when it comes to social networks like Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and more which offer a public API for developers who want to make tools that integrate with a network. However, Snapchat’s API isn’t available, developers are forced to use a less secure workaround of accessing user credentials. That’s what happened with SnapSaved, the third party site hacked in October’s photo leak. See also: Snapchat Claims It Can’t Afford To Keep Your Photos SecureSnapchat is valued at $10 billion, with its 24-year-old CEO Evan Spiegel paying himself a $10 million salary, but the company said it cannot afford to make and maintain a trustworthy API or developer program available. Users will simply have to learn that even if third-party applications are safe most of the time, the Snapchat ecosystem is not.Snapchat’s alternate solution is to warn users if they are using third party programs, tell them to stop, and prompt them to change their password. It’s certainly a cheap solution to the problem, but not one that benefits the user.last_img read more
