first_imgWESTERN BUREAU:WITH the prospect of re-signing homegrown striker Craig Foster waning, Roshane Sharpe chose a fine time to remind the Reno coaching staff and faithful of his abilities when he scored an 80th-minute equaliser to save FC Reno another heartbreaking loss to Boys’ Town on Sunday.Lennox Cargill had given the travelling Boys’ Town a 17th-minute lead, but with the clock running down, Sharpe scored his fourth goal this season to force a crucial result, as Reno were facing a third loss in five matches.”This is still very much a work in progress,” admitted Graham. “Yes, we recognise that we need to fix some things. It’s not that the team is not playing according to how we want them. Against Boys’ Town, we played very well, but again failed to score the necessary goals to win the match.”He added: “I think we are going to get there shortly, because if we don’t have a ready-made centre forward, we have to make one, and that is why a player such as Roshane Sharpe is very important. I was happy to see him finally score again yesterday (Sunday).”SEASONALSTRUGGLEReno’s struggles appear to be seasonal, and yet again, the lack of inspiration, particularly up front, has returned to hurt them. It appears it will not get any better – at least in the short term – as it doesn’t appear they will secure the signature of Foster, the league’s top scorer last season.Foster left the club in the off-season for the United Soccer League’s Harrisburg City Islanders, and after a promising start to their season, in which he netted five goals in three matches – including a hat-trick – the centre forward was sidelined with a leg injury.A return to his boyhood club was seen as a light at the end of the tunnel for the management of FC Reno, who are mired in ninth place in the League table with 24 points, five more than the respective 11th- and 12th-placed Tivoli Gardens and Rivoli United, both of which currently occupy the relegation places.”We heard from a good source that Craig Foster may not, after all, rejoin the club as he is due to leave the country shortly,” Graham said.”We were hoping to pin him down in a new deal, but I cannot say what has really happened, except that that may not be happening as we had planned.”last_img read more

first_imgSt Jago High School’s Class One 400-metre star Sean Bailey wants to follow in the footsteps of his elder sister and former World and Olympic champion, Veronica Campbell-Brown.Bailey who won his 400m semi-final yesterday in 47.78 seconds, said the former world and Olympic 100 and 200 metres champion serves as his greatest motivation, and though he knows it will not be an easy task to reach her levels of accomplishment internationally, he is seriously trying to get there.”She is my biggest motivation. Every day before an event, she tells me to do my best and enjoy myself. She always tells me that track and field does not stop at high school and that it’s much greater than that, and it can be a profession. So she is very involved (in life), especially educational wise and I am glad to have a sister like her,” Bailey told The Gleaner.The youngster dreams of becoming a world-rated athlete in the future, and he is aware of the amount of effort that is needs to get to the top.’Great legacy'”It’s a great motivation to strive to be a World champion like VCB, as I would like to keep up the tradition of her. It’s a great legacy,” he said.Bailey, who is expected to be one of the main challengers to Kingston College’s (KC) Akeem Bloomfield’s, says upsetting the big KC runner and taking the gold would be very satisfying for himself and big sister.”She is always telling me that everyone is human being and they breathe the same breath, so I can beat anybody, so it would mean a lot to her (if win 400m final),” he said.The quarter-miler, who is still recovering from an injury, hopes to complete the championship healthy so that he will be fit for the Carifta Games.”I know I am not 100 per cent and I went out and gave it my best just to make sure St Jago wins this championship. My expectation is to finish injury-free so I can go and represent Jamaica at the CARIFTA Games. That’s my aim,” he said. – L.S.last_img read more

The company is launching a SaaS service in the next three months for the enterprise.You may know the company for its consumer service: GadgetTrak. The software is installed on laptops or mobile devices. It uses WiFi to track the device. For mobile devices, the service may use GPS. If that’s not available, it will triangulate using WiFi hotspots or cell towers. The software will also take a picture of the person who stole it.The software has been used to track stolen computers that has helped break up criminal rings. Recently, Portland schools had a number of laptops stolen that had the software installed.The software tracked the devices, leading to arrests and recovery of the laptops.CEO Ken Westin said the enterprise service will be available as SaaS or on-premise offering. One of its pilot accounts is with a major chemical company.People will install the software on the device, which syncs with the application in the cloud. Mobile devices will allow for over the air updates such as with iPhone or Android applications. Security is obviously a priority. ActiveTrak will store its databases on dedicated servers. The application layer will reside in the cloud. The on-premise service will reside entirely As demand increases, it will increase or decrease its number of application servers as demand peaks and ebbs.Westin said they are trying to avoid issues with propagating data across a number of servers.
