Ken Kenyatta’s men will live to rue their missed chances especially in the first half and they remain fourth in the standings with 62 points, one behind third placed Nairobi Stima who play Administration Police at the same venue on Saturday morning.Ushuru, seeking a return to top flight football after two years in the National Super League had a brilliant start with Bill Oporia getting them into the lead in the second minute with a thumping shot inside the box after Ravel Maxwell’s header had been blocked.It was a relief for Oporia, the goal coming just seconds after he had missed a sitter when Anthony Ndolo’s defense splitting pass from midfield put him through with only the keeper to beat but he placed his shot inches wide.Ushuru continued dominating possession, looking to seal the game early enough and they should have gone ahead after eight minutes when another thunderous shot by Oporia came up against the crossbar after some lazy defense from St. Josephs.The most of chances were falling on Oporia and he had another opportunity in the 21st minute when former Ulinzi Juniors striker Alex Sunga put the forward through on goal but once against S. Josephs keeper Martin Lule made a full stretch save.Ushuru FC’s Antony Ekaliani Ndolo shields the ball away from a St. Joseph player during a national Super League tie at Camp Toyoyo. PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluAs the game wore on, St. Josephs slowly crept into the game and the forward line led by former Harambee Stars striker Moses Arita began seeing more of the ball.Three minutes to the break, the Nakuru based side had a brilliant chance when a free-kick was poorly defended and the ball landed on Peter Thiong’o but his powerful shot from the left was finger-tipped over the bar by Ushuru keeper Isaiah Wakasala.In the second half, the visitors came in with more vigour and within the opening 10 minutes, they had brilliant opportunities to restore parity.Adam Said’s cross from the right was missed by a whisker by Arita five minutes in and three minutes later, Said had a goal disallowed for offside.The winger was at the heart of the equalizer in the 62nd minute when his well floated corner from the right was dipped in by Taabu’s header past a dazed Wakasala.In winning the corner, Taabu had forced the custodian to work beyond his effort springing up well to the rigt to tip over his well stung free-kick.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Ushuru FC winger Alex Sunga takes on a St. Joseph Youth defender in a National Super League match at the Camp Toyoyo Ground on Friday September 28, 2018.

So maybe that’s why Cetrulo’s departure this week is bittersweet for the director himself and the lab he’s helped grow into a $1.2 million operation. Today, it has a long-term lease with the AES power plant and sees tens of thousands of students walk through its doors. Cetrulo is moving to Florida this month to be closer to his in-laws and spend more time with his wife, Brenda, and 2-year-old son, Sirus. But he admits it won’t be an easy goodbye. “It’s not just an aquarium,” said Cetrulo, 34. “You’re growing native plants. You’re researching little sea creatures. You’re educating kids ? all in one day.” Dan Knapp, who served as Cetrulo’s supervisor for eight of his nine years, said he watched Cetrulo grow when he became the lab’s director in 2001. He was hired in 1998 to oversee education programs after completing his master’s work in marine science at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. “(Cetrulo’s) passion for the SEA Lab translates very well,” said Knapp, deputy director of the Los Angeles Conservation Corps. “People just gravitate to that.” By Kristin S. Agostoni STAFF WRITER Giancarlo Cetrulo had just finished graduate school when he landed a job at the Los Angeles Conservation Corps’ SEA Lab, then a fledgling upstart with a modest $400,000 annual budget. In those days, the tiny operation across from the AES power plant in Redondo Beach had one funding source guaranteed to last for only 10 years. And it attracted a fairly small fan base, bringing in a mere 2,000 schoolchildren each year. SEA Lab was created in 1996 with money from a legal settlement between Southern California Edison and the San Francisco-based Earth Island Institute, which alleged the company’s new San Onofre generating station would harm aquatic life. The spot chosen was the same place Edison had created as a lab three decades ago. In those days, marine biologists at the Redondo plant were charged with developing a fish protection system for species accidentally swept into the power plants’ water intake systems. Edison promised SEA Lab $4 million over 10 years, and the nonprofit Los Angeles Conservation Corps was charged with running it. Students, many of whom come from underserved communities, are paid stipends to work as “corps members,” leading field trips and education programs. The lab feared for its home and financial future as the 10-year settlement deadline neared, but both problems eventually found solutions. After considering different King Harbor locations, the lab eventually secured a long-term lease with AES, which had bought the plant from Edison in 1997. And it had diversified revenues enough to ensure survival without the Edison funding, Cetrulo said. (Even so, the energy company pledged $50,000 this year.) Knapp gives Cetrulo much of the credit. “Because of his tenacity and his refusal to let the SEA Lab fail, (he’s) been responsible for the diversity of its funding,” he said. “He believes what he’s selling like there’s no tomorrow. He’s fearless with regards to cold calling.” Today, SEA Lab operates with grant money, donations and fee-for-service contracts with different government agencies, including the city of Redondo Beach and the county Department of Beaches and Harbors, which both tapped the center for separate beach bluffs restoration projects. Employees have also worked pro bono on Redondo’s water- quality task force and held Earth day celebrations with the city. “I think that Giancarlo has really been a driving force in upgrading that facility as well as promoting it, not just throughout our community but the entire county,” Redondo Beach Mayor Mike Gin said. “I always thought of the SEA Lab as him,” said City Councilman Chris Cagle said. “It really is a loss.” If Cetrulo endured “one black eye” during his tenure, he believes it was over Redondo’s beach bluffs restoration project, which drew criticism this summer. Despite the resurgence of federally protected El Segundo blue butterflies, insects that had vanished from most of the South Bay but returned to feast on newly planted dune buckwheat flowers, some residents and city leaders complained that the native plants looked dead and the hillsides sparse. But consider the benefits, Cetrulo counters. The bluffs now sprout native species that require little water and were grown by underserved students working in the lab’s plant nursery. And the butterflies are back. “It’s a resounding ecological success,” Cetrulo said. firstname.lastname@example.orgWant local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Jeeves at ‘home sweet home’ with his new family The Monaghans.A few weeks ago we brought you the shocking story of how a car pulled up outside a house in Mountain Top in Letterkenny and simply dumped a kitten on the footpath.The three month old black and white kitten was dumped before the person jumped into a waiting car and drove off.The owner of the house, who found the kitten crying on their doorstep, contacted the DSPCA who collected the kitten which they named Shadow. Now the good news is that one kind and caring family who read about Shadow’s plight on Donegal Daily have given him a new name – and a wonderful new life.This is the message they left with us complete with a picture of a very healthy and happy ‘Jeeves’!“Hi, we thought you’d like to know that after reading on your website about a kitten abandoned at the Mountain Top, we contacted the rescue centre & brought him home with us. He has had a few hard weeks, but after a few visits to Parkview Vets and a couple of courses of antibiotics and being syringe-fed for a while, the now re-named Jeeves is doing well. “He has settled into the family. He enjoys play fighting with our year old cat, Alfred and regularly snuggles up with our dogs, Honey & Poppy. He even enjoys watching our snake in the vivarium, although we can’t be sure he isn’t trying to work out how to get into the tank! We thought you might be wondering how he is doing after being abandoned in such an unkind way. He is being thoroughly spoiled by us all, The Monaghan Family.” KITTEN DUMPED BY MOTORIST GETS A NEW ‘HOME SWEET HOME’! was last modified: July 29th, 2014 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:donegalDSPCAdumpedkitteletterkenny
NEW YORK – Wall Street stabilized at the end of a difficult week Friday, closing moderately higher as investors shook off some of their stress about interest rates. The major indexes each lost about 2 percent this week. The higher close came after an erratic session, a sign that investors are still unsettled about inflation in the absence of any new economic data. An upswing in consumer prices this week sparked fears that the Federal Reserve will keep hiking interest rates; the Dow Jones industrial average plunged 291 points Wednesday and Thursday. Meanwhile, lower oil prices and further declines in bond yields brightened the market’s mood, as did a sharp recovery of the U.S. dollar against the Japanese yen. Dell Inc.’s plan to use Advanced Micro Devices Inc. chips in its computers propped up the tech sector. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREBasketball roundup: Sierra Canyon, Birmingham set to face off in tournament quarterfinalsBut while Wall Street maintained its anxiety over the interest rates, stocks should soon see a significant bounce after several days of steep declines, said Ken McCarthy, chief economist for vFinance Investments. “I think we are pretty overdone here,” McCarthy said of the market’s correction. “If you look at the fundamentals supposedly driving this (sell-off), they’re very minor. We have some nervousness here, but the underlying fundamentals are still very strong.” The Dow rose 15.77, or 0.14 percent, to 11,144.06, after gaining as much as 52 points earlier. The Dow declined 514 points, or 4.4 percent, in the previous six trading days. Broader stock indicators also advanced. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index gained 5.22, or 0.41 percent, to 1,267.03, and the Nasdaq composite index swelled 13.56, or 0.62 percent, to 2,193.88. Advancing issues led decliners by about 3 to 2 on the New York Stock Exchange, where final consolidated volume of 3.15 billion shares topped 2.68 billion shares Thursday. Expiration of futures and options contracts made trading volatile. The market has been on edge since the Fed last week said soaring commodities prices posed a problem for inflation and could require higher interest rates. Many on Wall Street attribute the recent correction in stocks to investors coming to terms with the fact that more rate hikes are possible. Wednesday’s consumer price index report was clear evidence that interest rates could keep climbing and sent investors running for cover. For the week, the Dow lost 2.08 percent, the S&P 500 slid 1.87 percent and the Nasdaq declined 2.22 percent. Recent weakness in the U.S. dollar has also stoked inflation worries since its falling value will require more of the currency to purchase foreign-made goods. But on Friday, the dollar regained ground on the Japanese yen, while gold prices plunged to $655 an ounce. “You don’t see steel, cement or other basic materials prices going up. What you see is gold, copper and oil going up, and I think a big piece of this is pure speculation, not driven by economic fundamentals,” McCarthy said. “Because of that, I don’t think we have an inflation problem.” Although stock traders were uneasy about this week’s inflation data, the bond market has been more upbeat about evidence of slowing economic growth. Bonds extended their gains from Thursday’s surge, with the yield on the 10-year Treasury note slipping to 5.05 percent from 5.06 percent late in the prior session. Crude oil futures tailed off despite worries about overseas conflicts and speculation that the summer driving season will strain U.S. gasoline reserves. A barrel of light crude fell 92 cents, to $68.53, on the New York Mercantile Exchange. Dell said it would begin offering AMD chips in some of its computers, a significant switch from its long-standing use of only Intel Corp. processors. Dell also posted an 18 percent drop in quarterly earnings. Dell rose 62 cents, to $24.57, and AMD gained $3.60, to $34.95, while Intel slumped 29 cents, to $18.36. Apparel retailer Gap Inc. late Thursday said its profit slid 17 percent last quarter amid a deepening sales slump that the company said should end in the second half of the year. Gap rose 56 cents, to $18.48. Nasdaq Stock Market Inc. said it acquired an additional 2.2 million shares of London Stock Exchange PLC, increasing its stake in the LSE to 25.1 percent.

Will Leonardo Bonucci be reunited by former boss Antonio Conte at Chelsea this summer? Chelsea and Manchester City target Leonardo Bonucci is open to a move to the Premier League this summer, according to reports in his native Italy.Both clubs are said to be interested in signing the Juventus defender this summer and it has been reported that Chelsea have made a £48million bid.That figure is not expected to be enough to clinch his signature but they are not far off, with the Italian press claiming the Serie A champions value Bonucci at around £50m.It is also suggested that Juve could be ready to sell the 30-year-old after resisting the temptation to cash in on him this time last year.Bonucci arrived in Turin from Bari in 2010 and has since won six Serie A titles in a row with Juve, three of which came under the tutelage of current Chelsea boss Antonio Conte.The manager, who needs a new centre-back this summer, wants a reunion with his compatriot at Stamford Bridge and could get his man when the window opens. 1

How to Get Started in China and Have Success California’s Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) voted unanimously today to regulate the ride-sharing industry. It will now be covered under a new business category called “Transportation Network Companies.” What Nobody Teaches You About Getting Your Star… How OKR’s Completely Transformed Our Culture Under this decision, previously unregulated independent operators such as Lyft, InstantCab, Uber, Sidecar and others will now have a new set of rules to conform to, including: China and America want the AI Prize Title: Who … Tags:#cars#startups#transportation Submitting to criminal background checksUndergoing trainingCarrying insurance of at least a million dollarsObtaining a license from the CPUCAdhere to a zero-tolerance drug and alcohol policyThe CPUC will also levy fees consisting of one-third of a percent in total revenues.Indie startups may often bristle at government intervention or regulation, but in this case, the ride- and car-sharing industry views regulation as a positive move that finally legitimizes their businesses. This comes on the heels of a tense period when the ride-sharing companies came under fire, fielding cease and desist letters and attacks from the taxi lobby. For its part, the taxi industry is not expected to react as favorably to the CPUC’s vote, even though it has previously stated that it would not fight the commission’s decision. As the first state in the U.S. to officially acknowledge ride-sharing service businesses, California could set a precedent that may bring more regulation to the industry in other states.
