Lindy opened the door for future Reggae Boyz

first_imgIn a column written almost eight years ago, Gleaner contributor Gordon Robinson wrote that Jamaica’s 1998 qualification for the World Cup in France would have been impossible had not one Lloyd Lindbergh ‘Lindy’ Delapenha kicked down the door to the English leagues in the 1940s for Deon Burton and others to get an easy access decades later.Robinson in his article, said Delapenha, born May 25, 1927, on the corner of North and Church streets, Kingston, was “congenitally mischievous and averse to academics” in his early days.He started high school at Wolmer’s Boys’, but was eventually sent to boarding school at Munro College. At Munro, Delapenha became one of the school’s best ever sportsmen, representing them in football, cricket, track (participating in 16 events at one Boys’ Champs), tennis, hockey, boxing and gymnastics.ENGLISH FOOTBALLAfter leaving Munro, Delapenha went to England in 1945 and joined the British army and was stationed in Egypt. While playing football for the army, Delapenha was spotted by an English scout, who took him to Portsmouth in April 1948 and became the first Jamaican to play professional football in England. Robinson wrote that he was “the first Jamaican through that door and he oiled it properly for future users.”Delapenha won the Division One championship with Portsmouth in 1948 before leaving for Middlesbrough in 1950. At that club, now in the English Premier League, Delapenha, playing as an ‘inside forward’ and as a winger, was Boro’s leading scorer (1951-52, 1953-54 and 1955-56).He slammed in 93 league/FA Cup goals in 270 appearances for the club and, according to Robinson, was kept out of the England side “only by the legendary Sir Stanley Matthews who, like Delapenha, was a winger.”He moved to Mansfield Town in June 1958, contributing 27 goals in 115 appearances over two years, before retiring from league football in 1960.After three years of non-league football, initially with Hereford United, he moved back to Jamaica.After returning to Jamaica in early 1965, Lindy not only played Sugar Estate cricket, but represented Boys’ Town at football, taking the club from Division Three to Division One, before moving to Liguanea/Mona.Shortly after, he became director of sports at JBC (radio and TV) and was instrumental in bringing English Division One football and horse racing, among other things, to television in the 1960s and 1970s. He stayed there for 30 years.Professional football careern 1948-50: Portsmouthn 1950-58: Middlesbroughn 1958-60: Mansfield Townn 1960: Hereford Unitedn 1964: Burton Albionlast_img read more

Father, daughter drown

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREBlues bury Kings early with four first-period goals The victims’ names were not immediately released. The pond in Cedar Grove, about 40 miles north of Milwaukee, is 8 to 10 feet deep and the ice was less than 3 inches thick. Neighbor Bill Schreiber said he saw two people running to the pond, one of them in shorts. “I thought it was a dog accident because I’ve never seen people on the pond, only guys training their hunting dogs out there,” he said. Around the same time as the accident in Cedar Grove, about 10 miles to the northwest in the Town of Lyndon, rescuers pulled a 12-year-old boy from a small pond after his all-terrain vehicle fell through the ice, according to Cascade Police Chief Cory Roeseler. The boy was in critical condition at St. Nicholas Hospital in Sheboygan, Roeseler said. CEDAR GROVE, Wis. – An ice-skating trip at a small pond ended tragically Friday when a young girl fell through the ice and her father plunged in trying to save her. Authorities searching with divers and boats recovered their bodies. The 44-year-old man and his two daughters, ages 9 and 6, were skating on the football field-size pond Friday morning when the older girl fell through the ice, Sheboygan County Sheriff’s Sgt. Doug Tuttle said. The father fell in while apparently trying to rescue her, Tuttle said. The 6-year-old then ran to a nearby home and someone called 911. Rescuers chopped through the ice and searched the pond by small boat Friday afternoon, when snow was falling and the temperature was 22 degrees. The Sheboygan County Law Enforcement Dive Team found the bodies, Tuttle said. Sheriff’s Deputy Jim Opgenorth said the deaths were a reminder that people need to careful around ice. “There is no such thing as safe ice,” he said. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

The aim of the Youthscape project is to enhance the capacity of children and young people, ranging in age from 16 – 24 years, to form positive and effective relationships with others from different cultural backgrounds enabling them to collectively make a positive contribution to building a division less, inclusive society.Emer McGeough (Department of Foreign Affairs & Trade in the South); Michael McAlister (Director SWC); Ciaran McManus (Head of Industry & Training, SWC); Gina McIntyre (Chief Executive SEUPB); Jim Wilkinson (Director of Youth Policy Division NI Executive); Maria Hackett (Head of Department, SWC) and Sean McAteer (North South Ministerial Council – Joint Secretariat).Welcoming the project Gina McIntyre, CEO of the Special EU Programmes Body said: “The EU’s PEACE IV Programme has a core objective of helping to build a more cohesive and inclusive society, free from division and intolerance. This project will help to achieve the objective by encouraging young people to become more comfortable with and accepting of diversity, on a cross-community and cross-border basis.“It represents an opportunity for wide reaching changes in attitude, by encouraging the hundreds of young people who participate in the project to share what they have learnt with their own families and communities.”The Youthscape programme is a cross-border, cross-community interventionist programme developed in association with South West College, as Lead Partner, Donegal Youth Service and TIDES Training. It will operate in Counties Tyrone, Fermanagh and Donegal covering the 5 areas of Omagh, Enniskillen, Dungannon, Ballybofey and Letterkenny and will deliver a proactive, youth focused programme to 800 of the regions most marginalised young people.Back: Paddy Muldoon (Youth Officer Donegal ETB); Gareth Gibson (Youth Information Manager Donegal Youth Service); Maria Hackett (Head of Department SWC); Liza Wilkinson (Director Tides Training); Lorraine Thompson (Regional Director Donegal Youth Service); Ciaran McManus (Head of Industry & Training SWC); Helen Simms (The Forge Youth Club Donegal); Jacqueline McDowell (Youthscape Programme Co-ordinator SWC) and Frank Dooley (Director & Vice Chair Donegal Youth Service).Front: Charlene Logue (Youth Outreach Manager Donegal Youth Service); Rosemary Barton (UUP MLA Fermanagh South Tyrone); Gina McIntyre (Chief Executive SEUPB); Jemma Dolan (Sinn Fein MLA Fermanagh South Tyrone) and Emer McGeough (Department of Foreign Affairs & Trade in the South).Ciaran McManus, Head of Industry and Training at South West College said:“South West College is delighted to be involved in the Youthscape project, which has a strong focus on youth development and education.

Zain extends ‘One Network’ to SA

first_img7 June 2010Pan-African mobile operator Zain has struck a deal with Cell C that will see the expansion of the Kuwait-based company’s “One Network” – a service that allows its users to go to other countries within the network and still pay local rates – to South Africa.The One Network borderless mobile phone platform enables pre-paid and post-paid Zain customers, when travelling to another One Network partner country, to be treated as local customer in terms of pricing, while retaining home country service functionalities.Now, in South Africa, Zain customers will be able to make calls, send text messages and access the internet (use data) at local rates, and receive incoming calls at a minimal charge.“We have reached a significant milestone by our presence in South Africa, the region’s superpower, which this summer will be the focal point of sporting world,” Zain Africa CEO Chris Gabriel said in a statement last week.No pre-registrationThere is no need for customers to pre-register, no roaming deposits, and no complicated dialling formats. As in any other One Network country, Zain customers in South Africa will be able to recharge their pre-paid lines with locally purchased top-up cards.“Simplicity is one of the core values of Cell C, and One Network makes roaming a lot simpler for our Zain customers,” said Cell C CEO Lars Reichelt. “We are happy to enable Zain visitors to South Africa to make use of our network at prices similar to what local customers would pay.”One NetworkSince its introduction in East Africa in September 2006 and its cross-continent expansion thereafter, One Network has been recognised by the international mobile industry for setting new standards in cross-border mobile communication.Over 40-million Zain users from 15 countries across the continent will benefit from the deal with Cell C. These include Burkina Faso, Chad, Congo Republic, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Gabon, Ghana, Kenya, Malawi, Madagascar, Niger, Nigeria, Sierra Leone, Tanzania, Uganda and Zambia.SAinfo reporterWould you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

Dyyno: Stream Live Video From Any Desktop App

first_imgUntil today, Dyyno was probably best known for powering the video back-end of popular gaming portals like Xfire or Outspark, where hundreds of users stream live videos of their gaming sessions at any given time of the day. Starting today, however, Dyyno will also offer personal and customizable channels for individuals and businesses. Thanks to Dyyno’s hybrid P2P approach, users can easily stream their games, videos, webcams, and presentations from their desktop to up to 10,000 concurrent viewers.We had a chance to talk to Dyyno’s CEO Raj Jaswa and Vamshi Sriperumbudur, the company’s head of marketing, last week. During the demo, they both stressed the fact that Dyyno’s hybrid P2P architecture allows the company to provide reliable video streams while also keeping prices low. Dyyno can backfill these P2P streams with the help of its own servers, though at this point, the team has managed to bring the ratio between P2P traffic and streams from it’s own servers up to 98%. PricingPersonal accounts with one channel cost $10 per month (up to 10 concurrent viewers) and the company also offers accounts for small businesses at $100 per month (with 10 channels) and an account geared towards larger enterprises at $1,000 per month (which allows for 100 channels with 1000 concurrent streams). Not-for-profits, as well as education and religious organizations can also get access to this account for $1,000 per month. Tags:#Product Reviews#web CompatibilityBecause of the company’s reliance on its proprietary P2P architecture, however, users will have to install a plugin when they want to watch your streams. Currently, Dyyno doesn’t offer a plugin for Macs, so this might be a deal breaker for quite a few potential users for now, though the company expects to ship its Mac plugin soon. While Dyyno works well in Firefox and Internet Explorer, we should also point out that Google’s Chrome also isn’t supported yet.Easy to Use, Excellent Video QualityWhen it works, however, Dyyno works extremely well and just as advertised. To share any part of your screen, you just drag and drop the Dyyno logo from the desktop client to any window and the sharing session will start. If you want to switch to another application, just drag the logo over to the next application. The video quality was generally excellent and you can also manually set the output resolution (up to 1024×768) and frame rate (up to 20 frames per second). In addition, you can also broadcast sounds from your computer as well. WebExBecause Dyyno can easily stream video from any application, including webcams, video players, and games, it makes for a very flexible platform. In addition, Dyyno also offers a solution for Cisco’s popular WebEx online meeting solution. This brings all of Dyyno’s capabilities to WebEx and makes it easy to integrate Dyyno into a platform that a lot of companies have already invested in.A Few Missing FeaturesWe did miss a few features, though. It would be nice, for example, if channels featured a chat room, something we have come to expect from similar solutions. It is also currently not possible to embed a video stream on another site. The company tells us that these features are forthcoming, but for the time being, they are sorely missed.Overall, though, assuming you are on a Windows PC, Dyyno offers a high-quality solution for anybody who needs to stream video from a desktop directly to the web.
