Calypso eliminations set for Saturday

first_imgDeryck “De Hunter” St Rose, President of the Dominica Calypso AssociationThe 2014 calypso season is expected to open in grand style with the elimination round at the Krazy Kokonuts on Saturday January 4, 2014.Fifty calypsonians have so far registered to compete in the event which will commence at 8pm, the president of the Dominica Calypso Association Deryck “De Hunter” St Rose has said.“There are about 50 persons who have already registered so we are looking forward to everybody coming out to the Krazy Koconuts,” he said. Calypsonians are allowed to sing only two verses and two choruses and will be judged on lyrics and melody. This year, several veterans “interesting names like Peter Prosper, Val Young Bull Cuffy, Chris B, Trendsetter, Man Him Self” are on the lineup.Haxey, veteran calypsonians who was out of state and returned last year will be part of the competition.He explained that a previous announcement that the eliminations would be held in two parts as a result of the high number of entries received has been reconsidered. In 2012, over 70 calypsonians signed up for the elimination round. “We are below sixty so we are going to do one evening; it’s going to be a long one but we are going to be doing that”. He indicated however, that the figure may increase because “we have some fellas that like to do impromptu so that figure might increase”.Additionally, “all like today we might have some people registering and come into rehearsals”, St Rose added.So far only, only the Young Bull and Trendsetter have released their songs.Dominica Vibes News Share Sharing is caring! 36 Views   no discussions Sharecenter_img Tweet Share EntertainmentNews Calypso eliminations set for Saturday by: – January 3, 2014last_img read more

GaN RF Device Market to Reach $560 million by 2019

first_imgThe new market research report from Strategy Analytics predicts that the rise in revenue for Gallium Nitride (GaN) RF devices will grow at a compound average annual growth rate (CAAGR) of more than 20% to exceed $500 million by 2019. This accounts for both  military and commercial applications. According to Strategy Analytics Advanced Semiconductor Applications (ASA) spreadsheet model, forecast and outlook report ‘GaN RF Market Update: 2014–2019’, the magnitude of RF GaN revenue in wireless infrastructure applications along with variety of other applications will drive the commercial segment and will increase it by more than 50% in next five years. The report further anticipates the rapid growth in the defense sector that will propel that segment to more than half of the RF GaN revenue by 2016 and about 60% market share in 2019.According to the report, the biggest uptick in commercial adoption in 2014 came from Wireless Infrastructure. Though CATV was one of the first commercial segments to see widescale adoption of GaN, the wireless infrastructure segment will be the largest commercial segment. The GaN is still lower than LDMOS when it comes to wireless infrastructure, however GaN adoption by Chinese LTE deployment in 2014 made infrastructure its largest commercial segment. Military applications are expected to continue to strengthen the opportunities for GaN adoption and should push RF GaN device revenue to nearly $560 million by 2019.Click here for the Report.last_img read more

Japan makes plenty of changes for PNC clash against U.S.

first_img GET THE BEST OF THE JAPAN TIMES Brave Blossoms, Pacific Nations Cup SAN JOSE, CALIFORNIA – The Japan side that will take the field at Sacramento’s Bonney Field on Friday against the United States in the second round of the Pacific Nations Cup shows eight changes and one positional switch from the side that started last weekend’s 20-6 win over Canada.Japan faces the U.S. in Pool B at the Rugby World Cup later this year, and head coach Eddie Jones has already said he is treating the game as a practice session so as not to give anything away prior to their Oct. 11 clash in Gloucester, England. With World Cup places on the line, Jones is also trying to give as many of his squad a run to show they warrant a ticket to England on Sept. 1. And with Michael Leitch, Fumiaki Tanaka, Craig Wing, Hendrik Tui and Shinya Makabe all flying out to join the squad on Wednesday, there will be even more changes for the final two games of the competition.Kensuke Hatakeyama leads the side from tighthead prop and forms an all-new front row alongside Keita Inagaki and Takeshi Kizu.“We need to keep the momentum going from the good game we had against Canada,” said Hatakeyama. “Although we will be in enemy territory, playing the U.S. in America, I want to prepare well and really enjoy it. They will be our opponents in the World Cup, but I want to just concentrate and compete without giving that much thought.”Hitoshi Ono and Luke Thompson keep their spots in the second row as do flankers Michael Broadhurst and Justin Ives, but there is a change at No. 8 with Ryu Koliniasi Holani set to win his 40th cap.Keisuke Uchida gets a rare start at scrumhalf and he will partner Harumichi Tatekawa, who has recovered from the facial injury he picked up against Canada.“It’s the first time I have started a game in two years so there is a feeling of both fun and tension,” said Uchida. “This may be my first and last chance to get a lot of playing time before the World Cup. I will treat it as if I am getting one chance in the World Cup itself and take my best shot.”Ryohei Yamanaka takes over from Yu Tamura at inside center with Kotaro Matsushima keeping his No. 13 jersey. Akihito Yamada and Karne Hesketh are brought in to show what they can do on the wings, while Yoshikazu Fujita shifts from wing to fullback, despite showing some defensive frailties last week.Of the eight players on the bench, six were involved in last week’s game, while hooker Hiroki Yuhara and flyhalf Kosei Ono look to get their first outings of the campaign.The U.S. Eagles — which lost 21-16 to Samoa in its opening game — head into the game under some controversy with former skipper Todd Clever, who spent a number of years in Japan with Suntory Sungoliath and NTT Communications Shining Arcs, axed from the squad for missing two team meetings. center_img KEYWORDS IN FIVE EASY PIECES WITH TAKE 5last_img read more

College basketball: NSU rallies past Southern in Shreveport-Bossier Holiday Classic

first_imgDoug IrelandNorthwestern State Assistant Athletic Director/Media RelationsThis time Northwestern State’s second-half surge was enough to win.The Demons relied on annoying defense and plenty of hustle to overcome an 11-point halftime hole, then held off Southern’s Jaguars 69-66 Saturday night at Centenary’s Gold Dome in the finale of the third annual Shreveport-Bossier Holiday Classic.NSU (3-8) won for the first time in five games, and after ending an opening stretch that pitted the Demons against nine Division I foes with an aggregate 46-36 record, including Top 25 unbeatens Houston and Texas Tech.In its last two outings, Northwestern played solid second halves at two of the NCAA’s best last season, Sweet 16 entry Texas A&M and Elite Eight contestant Texas Tech. After another first-half clunker against the Jaguars (1-10), the Demons responded with a gritty effort coupled with overdue shooting aim.NSU forced 11 second-half turnovers while committing only a pair itself. After making 32 percent of its shots by halftime, Northwestern sank 12 of 20 afterward.“We’ve got to reconsider what we’re doing getting ready to play, because when we get heated up, we’ve been a much better ballclub,” said 20th-year head coach Mike McConathy. “We were tonight and it had a lot to do with aggressiveness and focus.”Junior college transfer LaTerrance Reed scored a season-best 17 for the Demons, sinking half his eight 3-point tries. Sophomore point guard C.J. Jones matched his career high with 15 points, draining 9 of 12 free throws while handing out four assists, making two steals and committing a lone turnover in 30 minutes.Sophomore Darian Dixon added 10 points for NSU, which benefitted from five steals by junior forward Brandon Hutton in 20 minutes. Sophomore center Larry Owens added three steals as the Demons collected a season-best 15 swipes.Southern got 18 points from both Eddie Reese and Sidney Umude. Reese pumped in five 3-pointers in the first half as the Jaguars pulled away from a 22-all tie to open a 38-27 halftime advantage.NSU closed the gap to 42-39 in the first four minutes after halftime but didn’t overcome the deficit until the final five minutes on a twisting left-handed scoop under the basket by Owens for a 58-56 edge.That was in the early stages of a 10-0 run that wiped out a 56-51 Southern lead. After the Demons went up 61-56 on a 3-pointer by Reed with 3:26 left, the Jaguars never had the ball with a chance to tie, let alone take the lead. SU hit a layup at the buzzer to provide a deceptive final margin.“A big factor was our depth. Southern essentially used six players (with 22 or more minutes) and we had nobody who played more than 11 in the first half, and we were fresher throughout the second half, especially coming down the stretch,” said McConathy, who got a team-high 30 minutes by Jones with nine other Demons logging between 11-27 minutes.NSU finished with 44 percent overall aim, after making just 25 percent in its loss to 11th-ranked Texas Tech Wednesday night.The Demons wrap up their pre-Christmas schedule at home Tuesday night at 6:30 against Louisiana College.Perfect-Dating.comAre You Ready to Meet Cool Guys in Tung Chung?|SponsoredSponsoredUndoTheTopFiveVPNThe Secret Netflix Doesn’t Want You To Know To Unblock RestrictionsTheTopFiveVPN|SponsoredSponsoredUndoAspireAbove.comRemember Abby from NCIS?

Middle school softball: Rusheon’s ‘Coach of the Year’ Jones helps players find love, passion…

first_img“It was super emotional. I was no longer the student, but a coach,” Jones said. “I knew in that moment I had a goal to inspire students like he (Coach Brooks) had me.” “I’m totally humbled to be given this title and when my athletes learned about it, they were so excited!” Three years ago, Sarah Jones was fresh out of college with her education degree in hand. Hired as the girls’ Physical Education Coach at T.O. Rusheon Middle School, Jones admits she had a few reservations, yet was hopeful, eager and ready to work. It was a busy year and the start of a journey that has helped shape, mold and define Jones’ success. “We utilize coaches a lot here at Rusheon. You aren’t coach of just one thing. Everyone is involved in everything,” Jones explained. “I had to find value and passion in the game and show students it’s a game worth falling in love with,” she said. “I saw the girls come into their own, take ownership and believe in themselves. I saw them falling in love with the game. They were fierce. They were in it and giving it everything they could.” Others noticed the transformation, too, including the girls’ spirit and sportsmanship. Jones still gets emotional talking about the moment she learned Brooks had nominated her for Coach of the Year. It is a title she now holds for the 2018-19 school year. Courtesy of Bossier Parish SchoolsRusheon softball coach Sarah Jones Though theirs may not be considered by sports pundits as a ‘winning season,’ again, stats do not always tell the story behind the story, especially in the case of the Lady Rams’ softball team. “It’s been absolutely amazing this year! I’ve never been more proud to work at Rusheon and with these kids,” Jones exclaimed. center_img What made this year different? Jones said she had to reach into herself and make adjustments. Her second year, danceline was added to Jones’ plate, an addition she called “challenging.” It was not until year three, the current year at hand, that Coach Jones said everything clicked. She was made head softball coach — and she established real relationships with her team members. A s Coach Jones will now tell everyone, “They have a goal. They have ambition. They want to stay in the game.” Perfect-Dating.comAre You Ready to Meet Cool Guys in Tung Chung?|SponsoredSponsoredUndoTheTopFiveVPNThe Secret Netflix Doesn’t Want You To Know To Unblock RestrictionsTheTopFiveVPN|SponsoredSponsoredUndoAspireAbove.comRemember Abby from NCIS?
