Fury, Joshua fight may be delayed until February

first_imgRelatedPosts Italy introduces compulsory virus testing for travellers from France Nigeria records new COVID-19 infections, more deaths as figures rise to 57,242 Tyson Fury to Anthony Joshua: Don’t risk fighting Usyk Tyson Fury’s potential undisputed clash with Anthony Joshua will now not take place until February at the earliest. The Brits had hoped to meet in December – likely in Saudi Arabia – assuming they come through their next fights unscathed. Fury was due to take on Deontay Wilder for a third time on July 18 but that fight has now been rescheduled for October 3 due to the coronavirus crisis. Joshua, meanwhile, is scheduled to defend his three world titles against Kubrat Pulev on June 20 but that fight is more likely to take place on July 25 – or delayed until even later in the year. And Fury’s promoter Frank Warren accepts his charge will now fight just once more in 2020. “That will push [a fight with Joshua] back to some time in February if that is the case,” he said. Fury stopped Wilder in the seventh round of their rematch last month with the American immediately triggering a clause in his contract granting him a shot at winning back his heavyweight world title. The trilogy fight will take place in Las Vegas with Warren admitting they had no choice but to reschedule. “They’ve locked down Vegas and the commission has said no boxing,” he added. “We need the time to do the Wilder fight justice in terms of promotion, it won’t go on till the autumn. “The problem you have is also the training camps if they can’t do them properly, they can’t get in sparring partners from around the world. “Fighters also need a date to be fully focussed on. “They want to be at their peak for a date so they need a date to train towards, we can’t give them any dates. “It is a blow as we would have liked to have got it done in the summer but it is what it is. “The whole country is in the same boat, everything has gone on hold.”Tags: Anthony JoshuaCoronavirusDeontay WilderKubrat PulevTyson Furylast_img read more

Cyrus denies arriving at camp smelling of alcohol

first_imgPORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad (CMC) – Defender Daniel Cyrus has pushed back against claims from Trinidad and Tobago head coach Tom Saintfiet, that he turned up to national camp last Sunday smelling of alcohol.The 26-year-old was one of the three players axed from the initial 20-man squad, with Jomal Williams and Joevin Jones also sidelined.Saintfiet told media here last Sunday Cyrus and Williams had turned up one-and-a-half hours late with “a decent smell of alcohol around them.”“Both were immediately sent home, back to party,” the Belgian said.However, Cyrus argued that Saintfiet had been wrong in his assertion as he did not drink alcohol, and also explained he had been late in arriving at the camp because of a flat tyre.The W Connection player said he had attempted to explain this to Saintfiet but his efforts had proved futile.“I went to him and he asked me to see the flat tyre and when I was going to show him at the same time he said, ‘Jomal, you smell like alcohol’ and then Jomal said, ‘Yes I had a drink with my family’,” Cyrus recounted to the Newsday here.“And after that I don’t know if that triggered him off and he told both of us to wait out in the lobby and then he came back and said, ‘Thanks for everything but you could go back and party’.”He added: “I was shocked because he asked me to see the flat tyre which I was going to show him. He just went off because Jomal was kinda smelling like alcohol – it wasn’t me he was talking to.“When I saw the Newsday (newspaper) and everyone say that both of us showed up smelling stink of alcohol I was shocked because if anybody know me, any of my friends, they know I can’t drink and I don’t drink, so I don’t know where all this is coming from.“I just want my name to clear up from this because people thinking I showing up in camp drunk and I drink (alcohol). I don’t drink.”Saintfiet subsequently called up the trio of Trevin Caesar, Curtis Gonzales and Akeem Roach to replace Cyrus, Williams and Jones for the three-nation CONCACAF Gold Cup qualifiers against Suriname and Haiti starting here today.And though sidelined, Cyrus said he was still prepared to offer his services to the national side.“All the time the commitment is there. If they call (me) back tomorrow (will go back],” he said.“I just don’t like the fact that the coach never spoke to me about alcohol, it wasn’t me he was talking to and for him to say both players showed up in camp smelling stink of alcohol, that is wrong.last_img read more

Incoming! Microsoft Launching Another Pathetic Smear Campaign Against Google

first_imgTop Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting The Hand Of Mark Penn?The recent smear campaigns appear to be the work of political pollster Mark Penn, who ran Hillary Clinton’s disastrous 2008 presidential campaign and signed on with Microsoft to bring negative political tactics to the world of tech. The strategy seems to be to keep hammering away on Gmail, hoping that if Microsoft just keeps repeating the same message over and over – that Google is a scary Big Brother spying on everything you do – it will finally sink in and scare people away.That kind of stuff sometimes works in politics. Whether it will work in tech remains to be seen. So far, however, it’s falling short.Gmail has surged to 425 million users, and now has leapt ahead of Microsoft’s Hotmail and Yahoo Mail. Of most concern to Microsoft must be that Gmail has been catching on inside universities and corporations. (ReadWrite and our parent company, Say Media, rely on Gmail.) A Microsoft spokesman confirmed that the campaign was launching tonight.In a statement, Google said, “Advertising keeps Google and many of the websites and services Google offers free of charge. We work hard to make sure that ads are safe, unobtrusive and relevant. No humans read your email or Google Account information in order to show you advertisements or related information. An automated algorithm – similar to that used for features like Priority Inbox or spam filtering – determines which ads are shown.”As I pointed out in my recent article, the risk of what Microsoft is doing is that it could backfire and make Microsoft look nasty and desperate. Instead of whining and running smear campaigns, why not just make better products? Why not just kick Google’s ass in the marketplace?The problem with campaigns like this is that it looks like Microsoft considered that option, realized it was impossible, and went with the negative ads instead.Images by ReadWrite. Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Tags:#email#gmail#Google#marketing#Microsoft More recently, Microsoft introduced its “Scroogled” campaign claiming that Google’s search results were skewed by advertising and even created a site, Scroogled.com, to make its case.(See also Scroogled? Microsoft Charges Google With Manipulating Search Results.)These are all part of an ever-more-nutso obsession that Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer has developed with Google over the past 10 years. As I reported recently, Microsoft has spent millions of dollars lobbying regulators in the U.S. and Europe hoping to land Google in trouble, though so far it hasn’t worked. Get ready for another blast of anti-Google propaganda from Microsoft and its PR maestro Mark Penn. Sources tell me that the Borg is about to launch another broadside against the search giant, this one aimed at Gmail, under the title, “Don’t get Scroogled by Gmail.”Microsoft flacks have been briefing reporters under embargo today. (I wasn’t on the list.) The news will break at 11 p.m. Pacific time Wednesday night.The gist of the scare campaign is that Google is a scary, scary company that reads your private emails in order to send you targeted ads. Even if you don’t use Gmail, if you send email to someone who does, Google goes through those emails to generate advertising revenue too,” Microsoft warns in material sent to reporters. Oh, and Microsoft points out that six class-action lawsuits have been filed against Google over this issue, and asks people to sign a petition “to tell Google to stop going through your personal email messages.”This is basically an ad campaign for Outlook.com, Microsoft’s new mail service. Microsoft points out that Outlook.com doesn’t go through the contents of your email. (Though it’s worth pointing out that Outlook.com does have advertising.)Nothing Better To Do?Microsoft has tried this before. Just about a year ago, the Borg launched a campaign about the “Gmail Man,” featuring a video of a mailman who reads everybody’s private mail:center_img A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Related Posts dan lyons 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Marketlast_img read more

Type 1 and Type 2 Business Problems

first_img Get the Free eBook! Learn how to sell without a sales manager. Download my free eBook! You need to make sales. You need help now. We’ve got you covered. This eBook will help you Seize Your Sales Destiny, with or without a manager. Download Now I had to deal with a few tough business situations over the last few weeks and months. This comes with the territory when you are in business. It’s also an upper limit on your success in business, your willingness and ability to deal with bigger challenges increasing the upper limit on your success, and an unwillingness or inability providing a sort of cap.My strategy is, was, and always will be to deal with the biggest, foulest, and most difficult challenge before I do anything else. There are a couple of reasons I find this valuable. First, it feels like offense. It feels like you are taking initiative and capturing the momentum. Second, it provides a sense of control. Even if you can’t control the outcome, you are controlling what you do and when you do it. You are off your back foot and onto your front foot.Having taken action and having done something prevents you from having to carry the issue around with you for the rest of the day, and it allows you to shift your focus to opportunities instead of problems or challenges.There is more to this than what I have written here. As a businessperson, you have two kinds of challenges.The first set of challenges are issues that are going to be resolved over the short term. They are problems that need your attention, but at some point, they will cease to be, either being resolved in your favor or resolved in a way that isn’t great for you but also isn’t an existential threat. These problems get your attention because they are stressful and come with a bit of conflict. We’ll call these Type 1 problems and challenges.The second set of challenges you face are different. They are not short-term problems, but larger, systematic problems. These problems and challenges aren’t going to be resolved very quickly, and the conflict around these challenges tend to be internal, things like your strategy for acquiring clients, a shift in the competitive landscape, the impact of changes in the economy, increased client expectations, and the creation of profitable growth. Let’s call these Type 2 problems and challenges. They are more important over the long run than your Type 1 problems, but they lack the sense of urgency.The reason to take action on your Type 1 problems before you do anything else, is because once you have done what you can do in that day, you can shift your focus to the Type 2 problems, knowing that the Type 1 problem will eventually be resolved. The more difficult, more persistent, and more challenging Type 2 problem is what deserves your real focus.You have an angry client. You need to do something about that, even though it isn’t going to be pleasant. Dispatch that Type 1 problem by making that call first. Then move on to the Type 2 problem of acquiring enough opportunities to build a pipeline that ensures your success.last_img read more

Saina & co win, India continue good run

first_imgTop seed Saina Nehwal breezed through her match as India continued their rampaging run in the tournament with all the shuttlers in the singles and doubles category winning their respective matches in the individual badminton event of the Commonwealth Games on Sunday.World number three Saina thrashed Sarah Thomas of Wales 21-5 21-9 to reach closer to her first Commonwealth games gold, while Melbourne bronze medallist Chetan Anand beat Nigerian Ola Fagbemi 21-12 21-6 in 21 minutes to stay on course of bettering his record at the sporting extravaganza.Debutants P Kashyap and Aditi Mutatkar also stormed into the third round in the singles event with straight-game victories in their second round match.Sixth seed Kashyap saw off 21-5 21-12 Jamaican Pyne Charles, while Pune girl Aditi, seeded fifth, took 17 minutes to make short work of Sri Lankan Subodha Kumari 21-14 21-7 in another match at the Siri Fort sport complex here.Mixed doubles pair of Jwala Gutta and V Diju, who got a bye in the first round, also stormed into the next round with a 21-13 21-8 spanking of Jamaican Henry Gareth Andre Theodore and Kristal Karjohn Fayonne in a 14-minute match.While Sanave Thomas and Aparna Balan also continued their good run and beat Nigerian combo of Fagbemi Ebenezar Olaoluwa and Braimah Hajara Maria 21-10 21-8 to reach the third round.Rupesh Kumar and Ashwini Ponnappa also struggled past Australian duo of Veeran Raj and Vithi Veeran Renuga 21-16 18-21 21-18 in a 36-minute battle.Earlier, Aditi had a shaky start as she allowed the Sri Lankan to open a 5-2 lead but the Indian soon clawed back at 9-8 and after surviving some crucial moments moved to 16-13 before pocketing the game.advertisementIn the next game, she didn’t give Subodha any chance and moved to 11-4 at the break and held her fort to claim an easy win.Kashyap too didn’t face much of a challenge from the Jamaican as he moved to 5-2 first before registering 12 straight points to zoom to 19-5. The next game too saw Kashyap zoomed to a 6-0 lead and held his fort to canter to an easy win.”It was a kind of easy match. I played a lot of strokes and I had a good rhythm going. In the second game I played a lot of cross court shots and taps and it gave me good points.The next match will be tougher. I hope to do well,” he said.Saina, who got a bye in the first match, took the court amid the cheers of the crowd and the Indian straight away got into business moving to 11-3 at the break.She kept the shuttle down and played cross court shots to make Sarah huff and puff across the court, grabbing next 10 points while conceding just one to wrap up the first game.The next game was no different, although Saina had a few problem with her cross court smashes but a change of racquet made things easier for her.”My strokes were coming good today and I played faster. I have been playing well during the team events as well. A few of my cross court smashes went out in the second game but otherwise I didn’t make any glaring mistake,” Saina said.Second seeds Jwala and Diju, meanwhile, took some giant strides as they moved from 6-4 to 13-8 and 18-10 before wrapping it up at 21-13 in the first game.The second game was no different as the Indian duo jumped to 6-2 before moving to 11-6 at the break, before grabbing six straight points to widen the gap to 18-7.”We played very freely today and our shots were also coming good. When you play team events there is an amount of pressure which comes from the sense of responsibility. So today it was different and it was lighter. We hope to continue our good run,” Jwala said.last_img read more
