GFF to sign MoU with UEFA, Denmark in June

first_imgGUYANA Football Federation (GFF) and Denmark Football Association, along with the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) are set to sign a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) in June, according to president Wayne Forde.At a press conference held at Pegasus Hotel yesterday, Forde revealed that the GFF “had scheduled an important activity for the development of football in Guyana, today. There was to be a signing of an MoU between the Guyana Football Federation and the Denmark Football Federation.The only reason why we are not doing that signing today is because president Jesper Moller of Denmark, who is also an executive member of UEFA Council, has been called to an emergency meeting with UEFA that is actually taking place in Denmark.”The GFF boss noted that the partnership centres on every area of football development and with Howard McIntosh, CONCACAF Senior Football Project manager, efforts are being made to finalise discussions on some of the immediate projects that Guyana and Denmark will be partnering with UEFA.Denmark Football Association president Jesper Moller“One category of the projects will be infrastructure. We visited one of the locations where we want to do a massive grassroots development pitch and we are also discussing some of the specific areas of coaching education that we want to put as the first item on the partnership agenda.“The MoU will be signed in June at the FIFA Congress, which will be held in Paris between myself and president Moller. I was pleased to receive a phone call from the head of UEFA Assist yesterday indicating to us that while Moller had to postpone his visit because of the meeting that is taking place in Denmark, he has communicated through her that he would like Guyana to submit the first projects that we will want the support of Denmark,” said Forde.Meanwhile, McIntosh said, CONCACAF has been working closely with GFF in the relationship with UEFA and Denmark, and the officials are happy to see that it has reached a point where the agreement will be signed.McIntosh highlighted that with Forde, he will be making the trip to Paris, France to sign the MOU in the first week of June.“That is another step in the right direction because without partnerships football cannot be successful or reach the optimal level of success that we all would like to see it become,” the Jamaican said.last_img read more

Geocaching country souvenir: the United States of America

first_imgWe announced five new Geocaching country souvenirs on Monday, December 10, 2018. If you have found a geocache in any of these countries, you automatically receive the souvenir on your profile. Check out all of the Geocaching souvenirs here.Share with your Friends:More USA Geocaching country souvenirThe United States of America — the birthplace of geocaching.At 3.8 million square miles (9.8 million km2) of diverse geography, the United States has the most ecoregions out of any country in the world, making it an amazing playground for geocaching.From the Atlantic seaboard, across the prairies of the Great Plains, to the Cascade mountain range in the Pacific Northwest, there are lots of unique geocaching adventures to discover.While it is true that the United States is home to some of the oldest active geocaches that are still around, such as the oldest Traditional, Multi-Cache, as well as the oldest still existing cache with a three-digit GC code, there are plenty of other amazing caching adventures waiting for you from sea to shining sea.Bridges & Arches of Central ParkMulti-Cache | GC17MX1 | by addisonbr | D 3 / T 2This geocache is an epic, 32-stage Multi-Cache that takes you on a journey through Central Park in New York City. Each stage focuses on the bridges and arches of the park which are beautifully crafted yet often overlooked. Central Park covers over 800 acres (3.237485km²) of greenery and recreation areas in the middle of Manhattan, so prepare for a long (but pleasant) walk.The Doctor Is In!Traditional | GC6YDR6 | by Doctor Dolittle (Ron) and djwhouse (Dave) | D 2.5 / T 1.5For this adventure, the TARDIS has touched down just north of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Its ordinary Yale lock has transformed into a memory puzzle consisting of four lights which blink in increasingly difficult patterns. Cachers who travel with the Doctor must repeat the patterns perfectly. Only then are they rewarded with flashing lights, the signature TARDIS parking brake groan, and doors that open to reveal the famed “bigger on the inside” interior.Mission 9: Tunnel of LightProject APE Cache | GC1169 | by Project APE (maintained by Moun10Bike) | D 1 / T3In 2001, fourteen geocaches were placed in conjunction with 20th Century Fox to support the movie Planet of the Apes. Mission 9: Tunnel of Light was one of those caches. Located about 60 miles (97km) east of Seattle, the container was placed by Geocaching HQ co-founder Jeremy Irish and the father of the geocoin, Moun10Bike. The cache was found more than 3,000 times, surviving minor disturbances for nearly 10 years. Sadly, after being muggled and going missing, Mission 9 was archived in June 2011. After it was found by dedicated local cachers in October 2016, Mission 9 was reactivated at the 8th annual Going Ape 2017 Mega-Event on August 19th. It is now one of just two active APE caches, along with Brazil’s Mission 4: Southern Bowl.

Microsoft Rolls Out Windows 8 “Service Pack” – Before Its Launch

first_img8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Related Posts Is a service pack still a service pack when it’s called by another name? For Windows 8, it might be. In a highly unusual move, Microsoft is now offering a “Windows 8 Client and Windows Server 2012 General Availability Cumulative Update” via Windows Update, that rolls up changes and improvements Microsoft has made to Windows 8 and makes them available to users even before the official launch of the new operating system.Normally, of course, service packs wait at least a few weeks or months following the release of an operating system, and they’re a major event. Windows XP had three; Vista has two, and Microsoft has released just one for Windows 7, to date. Steven Sinofsky, president of the Windows and Windows Live division at Microsoft, explained that the period of time between the release of a new operating system to manufacturing, and the time it is released to retail, had been used to match PCs with the new software components, drivers and companion software they needed to properly function. In some cases, that meant fundamental changes to Windows, too. But early purchasers might not get access to those chanes and updates. “We would often create dozens of changes for each [manufacturer] for these new PCs,” Sinofsky wrote in a blog post. “Those changes would be deployed during manufacturing of those PCs and thus would be invisible to customers. While those changes could potentially apply to a broader range of PCs, we did not have in place the testing and certification to broadly distribute these updates. As a result, customers would have to wait until the first service pack to see these enhancements. We know many folks would spend time working to uncover these… enhancements in a desire to have the most up to date Windows.”Now, however, Microsoft has managed to improve its processes so that its manufacturing partners aren’t the only ones seeing the benefits. “By developing better test automation and test coverage tools we are happy to say that Windows 8 will be totally up to date for all customers starting at General Availability,” Sinofsky wrote.What Do You Get?Microsoft said that the “General Availability Cumulative Update” would include four major elements:Increased power efficiency to extend battery lifePerformance improvements in Windows 8 applications and Start screenImproved audio and video playback in many scenariosImproved application and driver compatibility with Windows 8To apply it, perform the following steps:Open the Charms bar by swiping in from the right edge of a touch screen. (If you use a mouse, move the mouse to the upper- or lower-right corner of the display.)Click “Search,” and type in “Windows Update.”Click “Settings,” and install the optional updates. Is This A Good Thing?On the surface (so to speak), Microsoft’s “mini service pack” appears to be a good thing: Yes, there are major revisions that Microsoft needs to make with Windows 8, but the performance improvements would roll out anyway, over time. The early adopters can simply take advantage of them before Windows 8 rolls out. And who doesn’t like a free upgrade? Still, users posting comments to Sinofksy’s post have identified other problems, such as slowdowns after applying the patch, probably due to nagging driver issues. A more serious one is that which Microsoft has identified itself: that when you turn a Windows feature – such as Remote Access – on or off, the computer may require a restart. So far, there doesn’t seem to be many people, if any, who have encountered this problem. If you do, let us know in the comments below.More Work Needed?Otherwise, some users say that Microsoft still has more work to do.“Yeah, fix your apps!” “Marcus” wrote. “Photos and Mail STILL crash every time during loading after the updates. Thankfully the real apps, aka desktop apps, don’t have issues running.”Microsoft is addressing some of those requests, quietly rolling out updates to its core SkyDrive, Mail, Calendar, People and Messaging apps, as well as Photos, Maps, Bing, Finance and News. Microsoft recommends that Windows 8 users keep an eye on the Store tile, which will indicatewhen updates are available. users can then open it and click the updates link in the top right corner to see the list and install the desired updates.Notable changes will include, according to Microsoft,  a conversation view of your inbox in Mail, plus complete IMAP account support; indoor venue maps in Maps, plus integration with its Travel app; and a SmartDJ feature for its Music app. Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hostingcenter_img Tags:#Microsoft#web Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… markhachmanlast_img read more

Three minutes later, Bengaluru were back on level terms.advertisementThis time, it was Spanish midfielder Miku’s turn to bamboozle FC Goa’s defense before finishing off with a Messi like chip over the goalkeeper.However, Bengaluru FC’s fairytale comeback story was cut short by Corominas.In the 63rd minute, Lanzarote again turned provider. His well-weighted through ball put the forward one on one with Bengaluru’s replacement goalkeeper Abhra Mondal to seal all three points for the home side.last_img read more
