A’s bullpenning strategy opens door for second-guessing after Wild Card flop in Bronx

first_imgClick HERE if you’re having trouble viewing the gallery on your mobile device.OAKLAND — To win their first World Series in Oakland back in 1972, the A’s used a primitive version of “bullpenning.”Only it was more like starter-ing. In Game 7 against the Cincinnati Reds, Manager Dick Williams unleashed Blue Moon Odom (for 4.1 innings) before turning things over to Catfish Hunter (2.2) and Ken Holtzman (one batter) before eventually getting to an actual reliever (Rollie Fingers).That strategy …last_img read more

Known widely as the “It’s in our Hands” logo, it will be available at a cost of R10 when users text 46664 to the number 31116. SMSs are free for Vodacom customers and all profits from the initiative will go to the 46664 campaign.“Mr Nelson Mandela once said that to win this fight, we must do more. The “It’s in our Hands” wallpaper available on Vodafone Live! is one of the ways Vodacom continues to unite our customers to get involved,” says Dot Field, chief communications officer of Vodacom.“By supporting 46664 and the Nelson Mandela Foundation we are providing funds to assist those making such a difference on the frontline in the fight against HIV/Aids, and most importantly giving the South African public a chance to do the same.”The 46664 campaign took off in 2003 when the former South African president and iconic anti-apartheid activist called on entertainment and sport stars to join the fight against HIV/Aids. The initiative was aimed at young people, who are the age group with the highest rate of new HIV infections around the world.That same year, with the backing of the Nelson Mandela Foundation, a group of music, sport and entertainment celebrities made appearances at the inaugural HIV/Aids awareness concert at Cape Town’s Green Point Stadium.The event was broadcast worldwide via radio, television and the internet and artists included the Eurythmics whose lead singer Annie Lennox has been championing HIV awareness and human rights causes since the 1980s. Other guest artists included the remaining band members of the group, Queen. The band’s lead vocalist, Freddie Mercury, died from an Aids related illness in 1991.Since then concerts have been held every year in various locations around the world and have been witnessed by more than 1-billion people and always feature the who’s who on the music scene.Tim Massey, International Director of 46664 says, “Madiba, who celebrated his 90th birthday earlier this year, is as passionate and committed as ever to the fight against HIV/Aids and the de-stigmatisation of the disease not only in our country and continent but indeed the world over. Our appeal is that every South African will proudly display the 46664 “It’s in our Hands” digital wallpaper and in doing so, they will demonstrate compassion, unity and empathy with those living with HIV as well as their families.”People downloading the logo will automatically be entered into a lucky prize draw. Every day, one lucky mobile user could win a silver 46664 bangle. The bangle, which is made and packaged by South African artisans and bears the 46664 digits was unveiled this year and is available worldwide in silver, gold and platinum.Do you have any comment or queries about this article?

Having earned a total of nine heat wins on the World Tour so far this season, Smith, currently ranked eleventh in the world, has produced mixed results and is looking to the Mr Price Pro Ballito as preparation for the J-Bay Open. ‘A great opportunity’ “I find surfing Primes a great opportunity to fine tune my surfing, especially in the lead up to a World Tour Event,” he explained. “It’s sometimes easier to stay focused when you surf every day. Too many lay days in a row can be the biggest distraction.” The festival will include free music concerts at Salt Rock on 3 and 4 July, while a Food and Wine Festival takes place on 1 and 2 July.Corporate social investment The RedCap Foundation has been selected as the event’s Corporate Social Investment program. Active in the region since 2010, the Foundation’s health and education programmes impact low-income communities in KwaDukuza. SAinfo reporter With a second place finish to Julian Wilson in one of the most exciting finals in Mr Price Pro history in 2013, the competitive beast in Smith will settle for nothing less than going one better in 2014.‘I want to win three in a row!’ “I’m really looking forward to trying to bring the trophy back to South Africa,” Smith said. “I love nothing more than winning in front of the home crowd and winning in Ballito would be the ultimate preparation for J-Bay. I want to win three in a row!”center_img Renowned as one of the biggest beach festivals on the African continent, the Mr Price Pro Ballito is expecting approximately 100 000 fans to soak up the non-stop entertainment over the seven days. ‘A world-class wave’ “When it’s on, it’s a world-class wave. You can get ‘backdoor-like’ barrels, then as it drops it becomes really high performance, especially with the wind blowing into the rights,” he said 19 June 2014 Surfing superstar Jordy Smith is set to return to home waters in the South African leg of the Association of Surfing Professionals (ASP) World Tour, starting with the Mr Price Pro Ballito on the KwaZulu-Natal coast, which runs from 30 June to 6 July. Taking place at the crucial half-way mark on both the ASP Qualifying Series and ASP World Tour, the event will see the world’s best surfers flocking to South Africa for the back-to-back ASP Prime-rated Mr Price Pro Ballito and J-Bay Open, which is back as a stop on the elite ASP World Tour, and runs from 10 to 21 July. Top results at home One of the most dominant athletes on home soil over the past five years, Smith thrives on performing in front of a home crowd. His results include clinching victory at the Mr Price Pro Ballito in 2010 followed by a runner-up finish in 2013. He also claimed back-to-back victories in J-Bay (Jeffreys Bay in the Western Cape) in 2010 and 2011. “There is always something special about competing at home,” Smith said in a statement in Tahiti this week. “It’s mainly being familiar with the waves and having the support of family and friends.”last_img read more

Imminent House vote on TPA

admin no comments

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest With the U.S. House soon to take up Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) legislation, NPPC announced it would “key vote” lawmakers’ votes on the measure, which is vital to finalizing free trade agreements. (The Senate passed TPA May 23.)Periodically, NPPC scores members of Congress on their votes on issues and legislation that are of paramount importance to the livelihoods of America’s pork producers. The scores then are made public so voters have the information when determining the candidate of their choice in the next election. TPA defines U.S. negotiating objectives and priorities for trade agreements and establishes consultation and notification requirements for the president to follow throughout the negotiation process. Once trade negotiators finalize a deal, Congress gets to review it and vote yes or no – without amendments – on it.Congress has granted TPA to every president since 1974, with the most recent law being approved in August 2002 and expiring June 30, 2007. The immediate need for TPA is for concluding the Trans-Pacific Partnership negotiations among the United States and 11 Pacific Rim countries. According to Iowa State University economist Dermot Hayes, the TPP deal would be the most significant commercial opportunity ever for U.S. pork producers, generating more than 10,000 pork industry jobs. Failure to pass TPA, which effectively would be a vote against TPP, would send a signal to the world that the United States is turning its back on the Asia-Pacific region — the fastest growing area in the world — and allow other countries to write the rules for international trade, according to NPPC, which is leading the charge to get TPA approved.last_img read more

A Map To Better Understand The Cloud Ecosystem…And The Hype

admin no comments

first_imgAppirio is in the business of helping companies get into the cloud computing world so it is no surprise that the map has its own viewpoints on matters of the cloud.From the Appirio blog:“It (the map) distinguishes between offerings that are true cloud offerings vs. those that are “hosted” (single tenant / multi-instance) vs. those that are on-premise “private cloud”….not really a cloud at all. Not really a cloud at all? Hmmm. There may be some who disagree with this view on cloud computing. Here’s the take from Gartner’s Tom Bittman: Trying to understand the basics of cloud computing is one matter but getting a grasp on the technologies across the different platforms is another issue entirely.To try and simplify things just a bit, Appirio is offering a map that shows the cloud ecosystem. The map breaks out 70 different layers of technology across applications, platforms and infrastructure. The map is pretty sophisticated with the ability to drill down to understand the underlying technologies. 3 Areas of Your Business that Need Tech Now That aside, the map will be pretty helpful to almost everyone with an interest in the cloud computing world. Here are a few of Appirio’s conclusions:You Want Hype, We Have Hype: Man, It’s almost reminiscent of the podcasting hype a few years ago. Look at the map and you see that almost every tech company you can find has some take on the cloud. Cloud computing is at the top of Gartner’s Hype Cycle. And, of course, we have Larry Ellison, who is having a blast poking fun at the world of cloud computing. Hmm….when the clouds clear, what companies in the ecosystem will turn to vapor?The More You Share, The Better You Will Be: The name of the game is multi-tenancy. “This results in more than just economies of scale: multi-tenancy enables agility and innovation since there’s only one code base to work off of, and customer behavior can be observed realtime.”It’s Really Not That Clear At All: The lines are blurring out there. It’s difficult to tell what’s a cloud service and what is not. IBM, for instance, looks like it cuts across the spectrum. Where does it fit?Kudos to Appirio. This is the kind of clarification that we need to get a better grasp on cloud computing and what it all means.
