Chiefs go on offensive again, 9-3

Chiefs go on offensive again, 9-3

first_imgSouth El Monte (2-2) inched its way back by scoring one run in the second and two in the third. But Santa Fe relievers Johnnie Medrano and Barrios thwarted big-scoring opportunities in the fourth and sixth innings. The Eagles, trailing 6-3, loaded the bases with one out in the fourth. But Medrano struck out Manny Acosta and induced Andrew Barrera to pop out. South El Monte, trailing 7-3, then missed a chance in the sixth with the bases loaded and nobody out. Barrios relieved Medrano and struck out Jose Garay before getting Acosta to ground into a double play. “I told (Barrios) we get three grounds balls and we can get out of here up 7-4,” Hendry said. “We’ll take that. But instead, he throws a great change-up to strike out (Garay) and then we get the double play.” steve.ramirez@sgvn.com (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3061. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

We kind of grew up as hitters from Monday to Friday. It was a great job.” The Chiefs wasted little time getting started. They had five hits in the first inning and took a 3-0 lead on a sacrifice fly by Salas and back-to-back RBI singles by Eddie Barrios and Francisco Fuentes. Santa Fe made it 5-0 in the second on a single by Eddie Chavez, a double by Remijio and a two-run single by Salas. “We came through with a lot of two-out hits,” Hendry said. “When you come up with two outs, you have to do it, and we clutched up. “We had hitters clutch up with two outs to drive in runs.” SOUTH EL MONTE – Santa Fe High School’s early-season hitting woes appear to be a thing of the past. The Chiefs’ baseball team, fresh off a 7-2 victory over Montebello in which it had nine hits, continued to look good offensively Friday, collecting 12 hits in a 9-3 victory over host South El Monte in the Montebello Tournament third-place game. center_img Catcher Derek Remijio went 3 for 3 with a double and triple and scored a run, and designated hitter Anthony Salas was 1 for 3 with three RBIs for Santa Fe (2-1-1), which led 5-1 after two innings before putting the issue to rest with a run in the sixth and two in the seventh. “It was nice,” Santa Fe coach Steve Hendry said. “We came out swinging early. The best thing about it was (South El Monte’s pitchers) were very similar to what we saw on Monday against John Glenn, who didn’t throw hard and kept us off-balance with off-speed stuff, and we never adjusted and got shut out on one hit. last_img read more

Ghana’s Kotoko hold Sharks in Confed Cup

Ghana’s Kotoko hold Sharks in Confed Cup

PHOTO/Raymond MakhayaNAIROBI, Kenya, Dec 15 – Ghanaian side Asante Kotoko held Kenya’s Kariobangi Sharks to a barren draw in the first leg of the CAF Confederations Cup first round at the Kasarani Stadium on Saturday evening.Sharks avoided conceding a crucial away goal while Kotoko just but managed to hold their nerves for a draw away from home and will look to capitalize on the result in the return leg. However, Sharks will only need a scoring draw in Kumasi next Saturday to progress to the second round.Duke Abuya ha the game’s opening chance after 13 minutes when his run through the middle saw him cite some shooting space from almost 25 yards out after some little tick-tock movement saw him evade his markers, but his eventual shot was an easy collection for the Kotoko keeper.A minute later, Abdul Ganiyu almost turned the ball into his own net as he tried to cut away an incisive through pass from Vincent Wasambo destined for George Abege, but keeper Felix Annan was well positioned to avert any embarrassment.Kariobangi Sharks winger James Mazembe tries to chase down Asante Kotoko’s Emmanuel Gyamfi during the CAF Confederations Cup first round first leg tie at the Kasarani Stadium on December 15, 2018. PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluKotoko were happy sitting back and controlling possession and didn’t have many scoring opportunities. They could have had one after 19 minutes when Emmanuel Gyamfi made a decent run on the right, his fancy footwork seeing him skip past Nickson Omondi, but his cut back after getting into the box was well defended.They had another chance in the 36th minute when Maxwel Baako’s freekick from the right was nodded into Martin Antwi’s direction at the edge of the six yard box but his attempt at goal was direct at Brian Bwire in the Sharks goal.Two minutes on the turn, Kotoko and Ghana national team defender Agyemang Badu was forced to clear the ball off the line after James Mazembe’s effort off a Harrison Mwendwa cross skipped past the keeper.Three minutes to the break, Antwi had another chance when Gyamfi’s well measured cross off the left landed on his path, but his header was over with no pressure on his back.The second half was a more balanced affair with minimal scoring chances. The two sides changed personnel, Yacouba Songne coming on for Kotoko for Naby Keita while Sharks brought in Henry Juma for Mazembe.Kariobangi Sharks skipper Patillah Omotto tries to wrestle the ball from an Asante Kotoko player during the CAF Confederations Cup first round first leg tie at the Kasarani Stadium on December 15, 2018.

Birmingham 1-0 Cardiff: Paul Caddis’ penalty on the stroke of half-time puts Gary Rowett’s side seventh in Championship

Birmingham 1-0 Cardiff: Paul Caddis’ penalty on the stroke of half-time puts Gary Rowett’s side seventh in Championship

first_img Paul Caddis 1 Birmingham overtook Cardiff in the Sky Bet Championship standings with a 1-0 win over the Bluebirds at St Andrew’s.Paul Caddis netted from the spot shortly before the interval – it was a fortunate decision as the ball looked to bounce off Matthew Connolly’s face.The Cardiff defender was wrongly penalised for handball by referee David Coote just before the break as Birmingham moved to within a point of the top six.Defeat was harsh on Cardiff who dominated most of the second half, and went close through Sammy Ameobi, but they paid the price for wasteful finishing and woeful refereeing. It had shaped up to be an instantly forgettable first half which saw Neal Eardley – who was replaced by Caddis – and Sean Morrison limp off injured for either side.Anthony Pilkington’s drive deflected over while Tomasz Kuszczak easily saved Ameobi’s weak effort five minutes before the break.Birmingham offered nothing going forward and Huddersfield loanee James Vaughan was left to feed off scraps.Cardiff had not lost against their hosts since 2008, a record which rarely looked under threat before penalty drama in first half stoppage time.David Marshall dropped Jon Toral’s free kick under pressure and Connolly threw himself in front of Vaughan’s shot to block the ball with his face.Bizarrely referee Coote gave the penalty – to Cardiff’s fury – and Caddis sent Marshall the wrong way from the spot.Bluebirds boss Russell Slade was stopped from confronting the official in the tunnel at the break and he emerged to see his side almost fall further behind on 49 minutes.Maikel Kieftenbeld robbed dithering Cardiff to find Jacques Maghoma and he fed Toral, who was denied by Marshall at the near post.But the visitors dominated from then and nearly levelled on 65 minutes when Pilkington flashed an effort across goal.And Ameobi wasted a golden chance to level five minutes later when, put in by Tony Watt, he fired wide from eight yards.Jonathan Spector then turned Watt’s cross onto his own post as the visitors got closer before Charlton loanee Watt lashed wide. Marshall parried Demarai Gray’s fierce drive as Birmingham almost wrapped up victory but Kuszczak ensured the points when he turned Scott Malone’s last-minute effort wide.last_img read more

Mokoena says: “if we do not tell our stories, we will never be our own heroes”. (Images: Melissa Javan)Melissa JavanTebogo Ditshego, founder of the online book club ReadABookSA, said we needed make sure we prioritised the right things. “We say we can’t afford books but on weekends we make a plan to get drunk. How about we replace the beer bottle with a book? What would our future then look like?”Ditshego was one of the speakers at the fifth annual World Book Celebration, held in Auckland Park in Johannesburg on 30 May 2017. The event was hosted by public relations company Ditshego Media in collaboration with ReadABookSA and OR Tambo International Airport.It was also the celebration of the first anniversary of Ditshego’s self-published book, Kasi Nerd. Ditshego is also one of Brand South Africa’s Play Your Part ambassadors.Speakers included South African actors Masasa Mbangeni and Thapelo Mokoena, entrepreneur Lebo Gunguluza, author and playwright Siphiwo Mahala, and Emmanuel Bonoko, the founder of EBonoko Foundation.

Bonoko says that the true value of success includes having a legacy.A thirst for knowledgeDitshego, founder and chief executive of Ditshego Media, urged South Africans to not only take care of their children, but to make sure their children had a thirst for knowledge. We must make being intelligent look good, he said.“It’s not about having swag, but rather to have intellectual swag.”The volume of the thirst for knowledge should be turned up; we should turn up at book clubs instead of dance clubs.In addition, Ditshego spoke about land, saying people had a spiritual connection with their land; they needed to reconnect with the land. “Connect with yourself first — know your [African] history. If you don’t know where you come from, how will you know where you’re going?“In every one of us there is a story,” he said, and pointed out that he wrote Kasi Nerd in six weeks. Its messages included that education would set you free and that you could not have a free mind if you did not read.Audience members at the World Book Celebration each received a copy of Kasi Nerd, signed by the author.Glad to have my book sighed before leaving for home.

He grew up in Ladismith and came to Johannesburg to study chartered accounting. He had no interest in accounting, but lack of knowledge made him want to study the field.He found out about film and the arts industries when he was studying at the University of Witwatersrand in Braamfontein. “I discovered institutions where I started feeling what I wanted to do. Being surrounded by that energy is what I enjoyed about being in these spaces.“My interest in the art of storytelling grew and grew.” He dropped out of accounting and started classes at the film school, Afda.Without reading he could neither act nor create stories, Mokoena said, adding that he was busy reading about and researching for the role of a journalist. “For the past seven years now I’ve become a solid reader. So many truths are found from reading books.”Mokoena encouraged the audience to tell their stories. “Let’s take the pen, the camera and the scriptwriters back… Unless we tell our stories, we will never be our own heroes.”“Until we tell our own stories, we will never be the heroes in the stories we read.” @ThapeloMokoena #WorldBookCelebration #KasiNerd pic.twitter.com/yDZC5UXXcD— Tebogo Ditshego (@TebogoDitshego) May 30, 2017Implementation is keyBonoko said he had seen many people who had ideas, but who never took action. “The world is inspired by people who get things done,” he said. “Implementation is key… be more of a doer.”Many things that trended on Twitter did not add value to communities, he said, urging South African youth to spend time on issues that would have an impact on the country.His message was spread on Twitter:Let’s strive for ownership – Emmanuel Bonoko #KasiNerd— FezileNomzamo (@fezilenomzamo) May 30, 2017“Let’s rechannel our energies to things that matter.”- @EMMANUELBONOKO #WorldBookCelebration#KasiNerd— Sydney Madibo (@sydneymadibo) May 30, 2017Bonoko said we should collaborate to be successful as a nation. “Let’s support each other; let’s be there for each other.“I learned from my mentor: ‘never assume someone is less important based on where they are today, because you don’t know where they’ll be tomorrow.’”Attendees at the fifth annual World Book Celebration in Johannesburg on 30 May 2017:Xolani Mogale and Lucky Nkoma enjoy the event.Noxolo Ntsokolo, Sindiswa Mkhwanazi and Onneile Khwene talk about the World Book Celebration.Poet Tebatso Mokoena, a performer at the World Book Celebration.Would you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

RockDex Announces Merger, Fleshes Out Offering for Bands on the Social Web

RockDex Announces Merger, Fleshes Out Offering for Bands on the Social Web

first_imgjolie odell Somewhat similar to NextBigSound, which we reviewed shortly after their TechStars demo, RockDex is nevertheless unique in its offering, which is further enhanced by the Locker Partner merger.“NextBigSound is just displaying plays or friends,” said Winter. “RockDex has single-song information, geographical information, blog data, and it’s just more in-depth. They [NBS] are tracking more artists, but it’s clear that we’re head-to-head competition.”As a use case, Winter mentions an emerging band on a large independent label. “The manager was pushing for a certain track to be the next single, and the label wasn’t wanting it. But people were organically gravitating toward to the song the manager wanted to use; it was getting as many MySpace plays as their mega-single that was already out. The manager was able to use that as proof that that track should be used as the single.”And when it comes to touring, Winter said, “People are often surprised to find hidden fanbases” around which they can structure a tour schedule.As far as Locker Partner is concerned, Kansas City-based Schlappi has been a web/music veteran since 1996. He owned at least one label, worked in distribution, put on shows, and has worked on social media marketing strategies for labels in recent years. In partnering with Winter, Schlappi’s company willl bring programming and marketing expertise and help artists build marketing plans around RockDex’s analytics and data.“Not only do we know that Jimmy has the best tool to retrieve to data,” said Schlappi, “but we have the tools to help people make smart moves based on what the data’s telling them.“Almost everything that RockDex retrieves – we’ve been using that data, but we didn’t have it easily accessible in real time.”Does this Midwestern merger of two startups and the partnership between two experienced, passionate founders add up to a strong contender in the music metrics and marketing space? Keep an eye out for the RockDex redesign and new offerings to find out. Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Related Posts A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… While talking to musically inclined entrepreneurs Jimmy Winter of RockDex and Shannon Schlappi of Locker Partner, I was reminded of something startup-scene veteran Robert Scoble mentioned in passing at Gnomedex. “I want to see a CEO who is passionate about what that startup is doing,” he said. Business acumen be damned, Scoble and I agreed that a true fan makes for a great leader.Winter is undoubtedly a huge music fan; moreover, he’s got the web and business experience to make his own music-related web endeavors successful. Music Arsenal is one of his online-music-promotion-and-planning tools; we spoke tonight about RockDex, a tool bands can use to measure their social media clout and growth, as well as his upcoming merger with Locker Partner, which will allow those bands to take marketing actions based on the analytics RockDex already provides.Winter spent the end of his teenage years – and the end of the dotcom days – flying back and forth from the his home base in Omaha to Manhattan, where he worked as a web developer for Fastmusic.com. RockDex was created, he said, for artists to “understand where their fanbase is at and make decisions based on that information.”Back in June, Winter wrote on his blog, “We began RockDex simply as a cool site to track your online buzz, but the response has been so overwhelming we decided to take it a step further.” Since then, he’s created RockDex Pro, which allows for “deeper tracking, better results, detailed data and more.”Initially launched just before SXSW Music in March 2009, the site provided musicians with a score of their overal presence on the social web. RockDex Pro gives more in-depth information on how artists are represented and discovered across various social networks and blogs. Bands, labels, managers, agents, and others can use this information to understand how their marketing efforts are working, discover rising talent while it’s still off the radar, and understand customer behavior.We played around with RockDex, using indie label band Year Long Disaster as our test subject. We were able to discover a ton of great information about where their fans live online as well as where they are in the real world. (The guitarist/lead singer was shocked to his foundation that Last.fm was generating more plays than MySpace, for example.) It was also enlightening to read the tweets from users who attended the show where they opened for The Cult.
