BCB congratulates new leadership of CWI.

first_img—issues invitation for Skerritt and Shallow to visit the Ancient CountyTHE President and executive members of the Berbice Cricket Board (BCB) would like to express our heartfelt congratulation to Ricky Skerrit on his election as President of the West Indies Cricket Board.We would like to congratulate newly elected Vice-President Dr. Kishore Shallow and it is our hope that their election would be the start of a new era in West Indies Cricket where the development of cricket is the main objective.The BCB stands ready to work along with every elected cricket officials whose mission is to make sure that cricket is always put first.We are very confident that Mr. Skerrit would not only be a fair, inspirational leader, but that he would spearhead a revival of cricket in the Caribbean.For too long, cricket in Guyana has been administered by an unelected executives who seemed more interested in staying in power than in the development of the game in every county.We at the BCB have not received a cent of funds from the Guyana Cricket Board (GCB) for over a decade, and every effort has been made to stop the progress of Berbice Cricket while we have also been denied the opportunity to see our stars playing at home.Over the last fourteen months, we have witnessed the unbelievable scene of the GCB operating an unofficial office of the Berbice Cricket Board with a full-time staff who does nothing but pass on email messages from the Guyana Cricket Board to the President of the Berbice Cricket Board.The BCB will shortly take legal action to stop this profound nonsense as we did not authorise any person to act on our behalf.We remain committed to working with all cricket stakeholders and would like to publicly invite Mr. Skerrit and Dr. Shallow to visit the Ancient County.Berbice Cricket is currently undergoing a remarkable period of development due to hard work, transparency, visionary leadership and a culture of cohesion between the Berbice Cricket Board and all stakeholders. We look forward to discussing ideas with the new CWI bosses as we strive to return West Indies Cricket to the successes of the Frank Worrel, Clive Lloyd and Vivian Richards era.Congrats and May God bless West Indies Cricket under its new leadership.last_img read more

first_imgA Letterkenny grandmother has been named as Ulster Grandparent of the Year 2016.  Margaret McConnell (56) was nominated by her grandchild Chloe Campbell (7) and beat off stiff competition from grandparents throughout the province to take the title. Margaret is one of four regional finalists who will compete to win the prestigious title of Specsavers Ireland’s Grandparent of the Year.  Margaret McConnell with her grandaughter Chloe Campbell There were great celebrations yesterday at Specsavers Letterkenny, where the team presented Margaret with her prize which comprised a framed certificate, bottle of champagne and a Specsavers voucher.Speaking at the prize-giving Margaret said, ‘I am absolutely delighted to be named Specsavers Ulster Grandparent of the Year and to be one step closer to winning the national title. It is a real honour and even more special because I was nominated by my granddaughter.’The Grandparent of the Year award was launched by Specsavers in association with Third Age to recognise the benefits of an ageing population and celebrate the special role that grandparents play in the lives of Irish families and the community. Grandchildren of all ages were asked to nominate their grandparents with a written entry on why they deserved the title. Margaret has a very close relationship with her granddaughter Chloe, who she sees almost every day.In her winning entry, Chloe said she always has fun when she is with her grandmother, knitting and baking together at Margaret’s house.

At Specsavers, we recognise that older people, and particularly those with hearing loss, are vulnerable to social isolation and these awards are an opportunity for younger generations to celebrate the many ways that grandparents and older people enrich our lives and communities. We wish Margaret the very best of luck in the final.’The overall winner will be chosen by a panel of judges, including campaign ambassador Mícheál Ó Muircheartaigh, at the end of November and will win a weekend away in Ireland, a Specsavers voucher and the Grandparent of the Year trophy.

Are You Giving Your Web Customers What They Need

first_img How do your customers use the web? It’s a simple question, but a question many small-business owners forget to discuss when working on their website. Frequently, small businesses get focused on their own technology and not the tools of their customers. From iPads and smartphones to oversized monitors and laptops, how do you deliver your message to your customer online today?Review the Metrics If you have a website, you should have some type of metrics or analytic application on your website. This is a way of measuring traffic to your website, and a feature offered by some applications is the ability to review browser information. This means reviewing what web browsers and operating systems your customers use and what screen resolution they have set on their monitors. These analytics can help you decide if it’s time to deliver content in different ways.Mobile Style When your website is accessed through a mobile device, how does it look? Here are two things to keep in mind when thinking about your website. The first is that image-heavy sites take longer to download on cell phones. The second is that Flash animation can’t be seen on all phones. However, you don’t have to sacrifice these features on your full-size website if that is where most of your customers are coming from, but you may want to ask your web developer to create an alternate style for your mobile audience. There are two approaches that you may want to ask your developer about: creating a style for the mobile web browser; of which there are many, or for the screen size of the mobile audience. The way this works is that your developer can program your website to identify the device’s browser or screen size and return the style for the phone. If you have a number of visitors who access your website from their phones, you should add this feature to your website.Print Style Websites are designed and developed to work on some type of computer screen, but if you know your audience likes to print your pages or articles, you may want to provide this option. This is a feature many online magazines like Entrepreneur use, but this feature can also be used by educational sites for sharing content, or by restaurants for displaying menus. This is an extra feature; you will need to request a printer-friendly style sheet from your web developer, and it isn’t something that takes long to code. The feature can be designed to be executed when someone hits a print icon on your web page, or when your users hit print from within their web browsers.User Style You may want your website to have a certain look and feel, but consider this: How many different audiences do you have visiting your website? Business is about showing your customers that you understand them and are flexible to their needs. Begin that conversation by giving your audience control over some items on your website. Font styles can be a great place to start. Provide users with a way to increase and decrease the size of your font to make reading content easier for your visitor. You can also let customers control colors so they can pick light text on dark background or dark text on a light background. These style changes will help your users make the most of your website, and consequently, they’ll spend more time reviewing your information. Just like each of the other styles, you will need to have this specifically created by your developer.Take your website to a new level and create styles that will show your visitors you want to work with them. 4 min read Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box.

A 3D Printed Electric Car That Can Drive Across the US on

first_img Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. 3 min read The applications for 3-D printing are being driven in a new direction.If you were planning a cross-country road trip, how much would you budget for gas? For Cody and Tyler Kor and their dog, Cupid, they’ll be figuring just 10 gallons each way for the 2,900-mile journey from New York to San Francisco and back. And Hint: it has a little something to do with 3-D printing.The brothers will be following in the footsteps of car enthusiast Horatio Nelson Jackson and mechanic Sewall K. Crocker, who made the same journey with their dog Bud in 1903. It took Jackson and Crocker more than 63 days and 800 gallons of fuel to accomplish the first cross-country automobile journey in a 20-hp Winton. The Kors, by contrast, have planned their journey to take a bit more than 44 hours, allowing for human and canine potty breaks, in a considerably more futuristic vehicle: the largely 3-D printed, three-wheeled electric car dubbed the Urbee 2.Cody and Tyler are part of a team led by their father, Jim Kor, who is president of Kor Ecologic and one of the key designers of the incredibly efficient, aerodynamic vehicle. Its name comes from the three core tenets that went into its design: urban, electric and ethanol. The Ecologic team’s goal was to create a small car designed for urban use, powered by an electric motor and an ethanol-fueled combustion engine.The team hoped to enter the Automotive X Prize competition in 2009, but ran into a snag when they were ready to create a prototype. The fiberglass molding they had originally planned to use for their prototype proved to be too time-consuming to work within their schedule, and they were forced to withdraw from the competition. The team turned to an unlikely source for a solution: 3-D printing. Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global Working with 3-D printing company Stratasys, they created a 1/6th-scale model, and then finally a full-scale prototype. The three-wheeled car weighs about 1,200 pounds and features a single-cylinder 7-hp engine that uses either diesel or ethanol and networked batteries to drive two electric motors, giving it the equivalent of 16 hp and a max speed of about 70 mph. Steel tubing in the chassis and framing helps make the car strong enough to meet or exceed road-worthy safety standards.Most intriguing, more than 50 percent of the car is 3-D printed. “Everything you typically see and touch on the car, as you drive the car, will be 3-D printed,” Kor was recently quoted saying in Popular Mechanics. That method of production makes the Urbee 2 more affordable — the sticker price will likely be between $16,000 and $50,000 depending on how many are produced yearly.Even more important to Kor and his team, though, is the fact that 3-D printing allows the Urbee 2 to be manufactured with minimal environmental impact.”Designing for sustainability can arguably be stated to be humanity’s biggest and most important challenge of the coming century,” says Kor. “It’s something we absolutely need to get right.”What crazy apps and gadgets have you come across lately?
