It never accomplished anything for me because, in the end, I ended up with nothing.” Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson God intervened in Saye’s life and now he shares his story all across the nation through his ministry, which proclaims freedom in Christ.Anderson said people of all ages and all denominations will benefit from hearing Saye’s message of hope, faith and trust in the mercy of God.The revival services at Springhill Baptist Church will be at 11 a.m. and 6 p.m. on Sunday and at 7 p.m. on Monday and Tuesday. “His story is one that everybody will benefit from hearing.”Anderson said that during Saye’s 40 years of unsaved living, he was a truck driver who became involved in organized crime.He became the head of a large drug organization in 1975. Bill Saye was born on Sept. 13, 1942. He died in prison on Sept. 24 1982.

first_img Jack Hobbs was primed to strike on his outside, while Golden Horn was tucked in on his heels, as Buick timed his run to perfection, scoring by two and three-quarter lengths. The Anthony Oppenheimer-owned winner does not currently hold an engagement in the Investec Derby. Gosden said: “It’s very much up to Mr Oppenheimer (whether Golden Horn goes to Epsom). He’s been very firm with me that he’s a mile-and-a-quarter horse and he told me that all along, so we will see. “The jockey felt he finished strongly today. He’s a horse who has really come on since he won the Feilden Stakes. When he won the Feilden, we said we’d come to the Dante and that’s what we’ve done. “His work on Friday was superb. Coming up on the train today, I knew they could well be first and second but I half felt this guy is the professional at the moment. ” O’Brien said: “We’re disappointed. There’s obviously something amiss with both of them at the moment. “Ryan (Moore) said JFK travelled very well and then just cut out. He did that at Leopardstown and we put it down to the ground, but there’s obviously something else. “We cant find anything wrong with them at home. All the tests had been ticked off, so there’ll be no Epsom for them. We will stop with them now and give them a break. “As for what we will run in the Derby, we will see what happens in the next two weeks. Those three pulled a long way clear there and I would imagine that their trainers were very happy.” O’Brien completely ruled out any notion of 2000 Guineas winner Gleneagles stepping up in trip for the Derby, comparing him favourably with Giant’s Causeway who notched a string of five Group One wins back in 2000. He said: “There’s no way Gleneagles will be going to Epsom. We haven’t had a horse like him for a long time. He’s an out-and-out miler but with more speed than Giant’s Causeway.” Golden Horn was a thoroughly impressive winner, showing an excellent switch of gears to collar leader Elm Park, surging past Jack Hobbs in the process, with the trio pulling well clear of the rest. Outsider Lord Ben Stack set the early gallop, with Elm Park racing keenly on his heels, but when push came to shove, Andrea Atzeni began to assert on the latter, winner of the Racing Post Trophy at Doncaster in October. Aidan O’Brien was left scratching his head after his duo in the Betfred Dante Stakes at York trailed home a long way behind impressive winner Golden Horn. O’Brien fielded both Ol’ Man River and John F Kennedy but the pair were outpaced when the race began in earnest, finishing second to last and last of the seven runners respectively. John F Kennedy had previously suffered a surprise defeat on his reappearance, while Ol’ Man River had been last in the 2000 Guineas, where he was eased when his chance had gone.

first_imgRudy Gestede has completed his move to Aston Villa as Tim Sherwood continues the summer overhaul of his squad. Press Association “He is only 22 years old but he is vastly experienced for someone that age. “He has played over 140 games in Ligue 1 and is a really exciting young player. “I know he is very highly rated over in France so we are delighted to get this deal over the line.” There was further good news for Villa fans as the club announced that defender Nathan Baker had signed a new four-year contract. The 24-year-old academy product, who has played 87 times for the club since his first-team debut in 2011, said: “I am delighted to sign a new contract here at Villa.” “I am determined to impress the gaffer and get in that side,” he added. “The competition is going to be fierce here at centre-half but that’s what the gaffer wants. There’s a lot of choice for him. But you can’t do well as a club without competition for places.” The Villa manager said he had long been impressed by the striker, who shone alongside Jordan Rhodes in the Championship. Sherwood told Villa’s website: “I’ve known about Rudy since he was at Cardiff City and he is a player I’ve always admired. “His goalscoring ratio last season was fantastic and he is someone who certainly knows how to find the back of the net. “He’s a big, physical striker but he can play and I’m pleased to welcome him to the football club.” The arrival of Gestede was preceded by the news that French midfielder Veretout had also signed on a five-year contract, arriving from Nantes. The 22-year-old had been regularly linked with a move to the Premier League, but Villa fought off competition from domestic rivals to land the former youth international. A regular at the Ligue 1 club, Veretout scored seven times in 39 appearances last season and arrives at the midlands club as Sherwood looks to refresh a squad that finished just three points above the drop zone last season. “I’m really pleased Jordan decided to choose Aston Villa over the other options he had and opt to continue his development with us,” Sherwood said. The 25-year-old striker passed a medical to finalise his move from Blackburn to Villa Park on a five-year deal for an undisclosed fee on Friday, soon after Jordan Veretout joined the Premier League outfit. Villa manager Sherwood had been looking to bolster his attacking options after the sale of Christian Benteke to Liverpool, and turned to Benin international Gestede who found the back of the net 22 times for Blackburn last season. last_img read more

first_imgBy Amlan ChakrabortySOUTHAMPTON, England (Reuters) – Sri Lanka may have done the World Cup a favour with Friday’s shock victory over hosts England by opening up the race to the semi-finals, former captain Mahela Jayawardene believes.The 10-team competition had just begun to look a little predictable halfway through the group stage, with champions Australia joining the top three ranked ODI teams seemingly with a foot in the knockout stages.Sri Lanka’s old warhorse Lasith Malinga then conjured up a four-wicket masterclass as the 1996 champions stunned the hosts in a low-scoring thriller to shake up the tournament, jeopardising England’s semi-final prospects in the process.The hosts are still third with eight points from six games but face Australia, India and New Zealand – teams England have not beaten in the World Cup since 1992 – in their last three group matches. “It’s a great win for Sri Lanka, but also for the World Cup and it opens things up a little,” Jayawardene wrote in a column for the International Cricket Council (ICC).“The top four so far have a lot of matches against each other coming up, so they will inevitably drop some points. “You look at New Zealand, Australia and England who all have to play each other which (scenario) does make it interesting.” The upset should reinvigorate not only Sri Lanka but also Bangladesh and West Indies in their bid to finish among the top four for a place in the semi-finals, the former Test batsman added.Sri Lanka have looked rather inconsistent in the tournament with only two wins from six matches, even if two of their matches were washed out.Jayawardene is optimistic, however, that the former champions, who also reached the final in 2007 and 2011, could progress.“I’ve always been convinced that Sri Lanka step up their game at World Cups,” he wrote. “They have the ability and they have the skill. This game should give them the confidence.”last_img read more

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Another dry day today, but this time we should not have to battle fog and low clouds like we did yesterday in parts of the state. The combination kept a lid on temperatures, while warm air started to spill in over the top of us. Temps should start to climb a bit over the next couple of days. We do have a few tweaks to the forecast, though, around our next precipitation events. Tomorrow probably is able to stay dry over most of Ohio, but we do look for clouds to be in the increase, particularly  in NW OH, as clouds spill in out of MI and northern IN. South and southwest winds will allow temps to eek a little higher. Overnight tomorrow night, a fast moving batch of moisture moves across northern Ohio, and it will likely bring some wet snow to areas mostly north of US 30. The best precipitation will be in north central and NE Ohio, where we see some interaction with the lake. However, there is nothing farther south for the period, and it is likely that southern Ohio does not even see the clouds that northern areas get, although we may wake up to a minor streak of clouds in southern Ohio near where the cold front sets up. While we are a bit colder, we are still dry for Thursday. Clouds are a good bet as we are shifting air masses around, but overall we still have a general flow pattern that supports south winds. This will keep temps near normal. Clouds thicken even further on Friday, but moisture holds off until Friday night, when we start to see rains slowly rise up into southern Ohio. From there, action spreads over the rest of the state and holds all the way through midnight Saturday. Rain totals can be from .25″-1″ over 70% of the state, and there can be some periods of moderate to heavier rain through the day Saturday. Action finally leaves the southeast part of Ohio Sunday morning. The map shows precipitation potential for the weekend. Colder air moves in on Sunday as clouds give way to some sunshine. High pressure moves into Ohio by later Sunday evening. A dry pattern develops and extends all the way through next Wednesday, with another high-pressure center working through in that period. Temps cool off just a bit initially on Sunday and Monday but return to near normal levels for the rest of the period. Clouds develop next Thursday as we kick off the extended period. Scattered showers likely develop for the 20th and may linger into early the 21st. Rain totals still look to end up in the .1”-.6” range, even with the slight delay in that system’s arrival. We also continue to watch some snow potential for the 22nd and 23rd with potential up to a few inches over 70% of the state. Behind that, we go drier but remain cold for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.last_img read more

first_imgcurt hopkins Related Posts 9 Books That Make Perfect Gifts for Industry Ex… 5 Outdoor Activities for Beating Office Burnout Saturday was the 395th anniversary of the death of Shakespeare. (Some believe it is also the 447th anniversary of his birth.) Shakespeare is, arguably, the world’s greatest playwright. He is certainly the most produced and most translated one. For those who think he’s overrated, fine. But some national literatures, like Poland’s, grew out of the effort of translating Shakespeare into the native language. Unsurprisingly, the fastest-growing technology, the social Web, has mostly kept pace with the playwright. So here is a short list of ways online to either discover Shakespeare, rediscover him or just compare and contrast. There is an aesthetic, after all, to the intersection of technology and art. Dig. The Complete Works of William Shakespeare. MIT’s online resource for all the texts of Shakespeare’s work for free. Open Source Shakespeare. Download and print any of Shakespeare’s work.The Folios. Facsimiles of the first four printed folios. Shakespeare Authorship. If you find working class people objectionable, or perhaps believe that 9/11 was an “inside job,” you’ll probably find the “authorship question” to your liking.

The RSC‘s main page would not open for us. (Come on, guys. Seriously?) But their YouTube channel shows a great deal of this world leader’s work. Stratford Festival. Canada’s Stratford Festival is one of the world’s largest and they have done better than average in using social media to connect with fans. (The average, to be clear, is unbelievably low.) Apps. Developers have created applications for both the Android and the iPhone. The problem is, most of the Android apps are just text-based and most of the iPhone offerings are just…trailers. One thing I’ve had some grief finding is a central source for MP3s of Shakespeare plays, poems and essays. If you have a source you like, as well as other resources, including podcasts and blogs, please drop them in the comments.

first_imgMobile BlindersEradicating boredom and banishing downtime has its upside, of course. In a recent Bloomberg report, major advertisers, including Coca-Cola and Hearst, expressed their concern over lowered “impulse” sales at the grocery store checkout aisles. This is not at all surprising. Staring into their smartphones, with their “mobile blinders” on, people are less inclined to buy gum, candy or those trashy magazines.“For years, publishers could count on bored shoppers waiting in the checkout line to pick up a magazine, get engrossed in an article, and toss it into their cart alongside the milk and eggs. Then came ‘mobile blinders.’ These days, consumers are more likely to send a quick text and check their Facebook feed than to read a magazine or develop a momentary craving for the gum or candy on display.” Awesome. Score one for the smartphone!But this victory comes at a cost. Spending so much time texting and updating, tweeting and watching, calling and playing at every free moment, from every location, never alone with our thoughts, never allowing our thoughts to drift, impacts our creativity, which in turn can limit our full potential.Edward de Bono, business consultant and self-described “father of lateral thinking” has authored numerous works on creative thinking. de Bono calls moments of boredom “creative pauses,” which allows the mind to drift, and avails the person to new forms of input and understanding. Boredom may be even more important for children than adults. Spending so much time on gadgets may “short circuit the development of creative capacity” in children, according to educational expert Dr. Teresa Belton. Other education experts similarly suggest that a child’s imagination and creativity is ultimately aided through bouts of boredom.Earlier this year, Science Omega examined the benefits of boredom.“Psychologists from the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) have conducted research into the potential upsides of boredom and found that the time we spend daydreaming could improve our creative ability.”The lead researcher on the UCLan study, Dr. Sandi Mann, emphasized boredom’s role in society:“I do strongly believe that we shouldn’t be afraid of boredom and that we all – adults, children, workers, non-workers – need a little bit of boredom in our lives. Of course I’m not saying we should make people attend boring meetings for the sake of it, but allowing staff downtime where they can daydream and let their minds wander could possibly lead to benefits for an organisation.”Short-term GainThere is the possibility, of course, that by killing our boredom smartphones are freeing up time for better, more productive or uplifting pursuits. For example, psychology professor Gary Marcus distinguishes between the two primary types of pursuits we use to defeat boredom.“Boredom is the brain’s way to tell you you should be doing something else. But the brain doesn’t always know the most appropriate thing to do. If you’re bored and use that energy to play guitar and cook, it will make you happy. But if you watch TV, it may make you happy in the short term, but not in the long term.”So much of what we do on our smartphones, however, is decidedly short-term: a few moments playing a game while we stand in line, a minute to scan Instagram as the person in front of us at the grocery store pulls out their checkbook. A study last year by UK carrier O2 examined the amount of time the typical user spends each day on their smartphone. It’s a lot – more than two hours a day, everyday. Most of that is spent browsing the Internet, on social networking sites, playing games, listening to music, calling, emailing and texting – and not, for example, learning a new language.  No Off SwitchAt work, employees are often encouraged to ‘think outside the box.’ The assumption is that such thinking will lead to creativity, innovation, and newer, better solutions to existing or expected problems. Spending so much time with our heads focused inside the box – staring at our smartphone – may mean, however, that we are ultimately limiting our creativity. There is no time freed up to see the larger picture, to make connections where they previously never existed, to allow our brains rest, to see and hear and accept alternatives. Though I confess I hope I am wrong about all of this.I spend far more time than the average user with my eyes staring into that small, bright and highly receptive screen. I am not sure I am able to shut it off, even now. Image courtesy of Shutterstock.

I take it with me everywhere. But I am starting to fear it may be killing my creativity. Numerous studies and much accepted wisdom suggest that time spent doing nothing, being bored, is beneficial for sparking and sustaining creativity. With our iPhone in hand – or any smartphone, really – our minds, always engaged, always fixed on that tiny screen, may simply never get bored. And our creativity suffers.Peter Toohey, author of Boredom: A Lively History, told the New York Times that boredom is the experience of “wanting to, but being unable to engage in satisfying activity.” No wonder those of us with smartphones are able to avoid boredom so easily. We can always engage in some satisfying activity, no matter how trivial – snap a picture of our meal, play a quick game of Angry Birds, check-in on Foursquare or leave a tip. We may be helpless, despite knowing the deleterious effects of these devices. Consider that Apple’s latest marketing campaign perfectly captures the breadth of functions and fun the iPhone readily delivers to its millions of users. There is so much anyone can do with this magical device, so simply, so quickly, from any place, at any time. The problem is that this may not be a good thing. At least, not always.   Tags:#Apple#iPhone Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaceslast_img read more

first_imgFast and the Furious star Paul Walker had a heart of gold and has left behind a charity legacy matched by few.The 40-year-old was killed in a car accident on Saturday.“It is with a truly heavy heart that we must confirm that Paul Walker passed away today in a tragic car accident while attending a charity event for Reach Out Worldwide,” his charity said in a statement. “He was a passenger in a friend’s car, in which both lost their lives. We appreciate your patience as we too are stunned and saddened beyond belief by this news.”Walker founded REACH OUT Worldwide in January 2010, following the Haiti earthquake. Its mission is simple: to offer help and hope to people affected by natural disasters.“Paul wasn’t someone who would just write a check and lend his name to an organization; he was the heart and soul of Reach Out WorldWide,” said JD Dorfman, Reach Out Worldwide. “Paul was the first one in and the last one out, he led by example and his hard work and dedication inspired everyone who had the privilege of working with him. He led one of the first teams into the hardest hit areas of Haiti and traveled to Chili to bring water, medical aid and hope after the Earthquake and Tsunami. He ran a chainsaw clearing debris and helping people get back into their homes during the hottest days after the tornadoes in Alabama… Some people play a hero, Paul was a hero. Paul was an honorable, hardworking, dedicated, respectful man with a humble spirit who shared his blessings with those who needed it most. It was an honor and a privilege to be able to work with, learn and look up to someone who walked the walk.”From his charity’s website: “Based in Santa Barbara, Calif., we are a dedicated network of trained volunteers who act as first responders in the United States and abroad. We strive to bring hope in bleak circumstances by providing aid when it’s needed most, in the first days after a devastating event occurs. Our philosophy is that by making a difference in an individual’s life, to that person, the world has been changed for the better. Our ultimate goal is to send a team to disaster areas within 48 to 72 hours after an event happens.”Paul Walker will be sadly missed in both the acting and philanthropy communities.Copyright ©2013Look to the Starslast_img read more
