At the other end of the spectrum, a number of Florida markets showed up among last month’s worst performers.

first_imgRelatedPosts Kano offers scholarship to students with special needs Messi ban now over, Argentine FA president says CAF ready to support Egypt with missing AFCON trophy As Nigerian football fans eagerly await Super Eagles’ opponents in the qualifiers for 2022 FIFA World Cup, the Nigerian Television Authority has announced exclusive live broadcast of the draw live from Cairo, Egypt on Tuesday evening. The telecast will start shortly before the 6pm (Nigerian time) event, which holds at Ritz-Carlton Hotel in the Egyptian capital. This is the first indication of the resolve of NTA in partnership with its marketing consultancy, HotSports, to bring all the matches of the qualifiers and the finals of Qatar 2022 to its teeming viewers and their associated brands. Nigeria’s senior football team will be seeded in the draw which will set the 40 qualifying countries apart in 10 second round groups, with winners then reduced to five FIFA World Cup finalists from the continent. The partnership between NTA and HotSports delivered all the matches of last year’s Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt to millions of homes in Nigeria. The matches were produced at the Lagos facility of HS Media Group, the holding company of HotSports. Last October, the partners were joined by African Independent Television to produce the live broadcast of the Grade A friendly between Nigeria and the five-time world champions Brazil, which was played in Singapore. NTA has the right to broadcast on free-to-air channels the matches of Nigeria’s national teams and clubs in continental competitions.Tags: cairoEgyptFIFA World CupHotSports.ntalast_img read more

Smith fires Australia to victory over Pakistan in Canberra

first_imgMELBOURNE (Reuters) – Steve Smith struck a sparkling half-century to fire Australia to an emphatic seven-wicket victory over Pakistan in their T20 match in Canberra on Tuesday.The former captain’s unbeaten 80 from 51 balls gave Australia a 1-0 lead in their three-match series after the opener was washed out in Sydney on Sunday.Pakistan managed to do what Sri Lanka couldn’t in the previous series — removed David Warner — but they had no answers for the peerless Smith, who put on a clinic of clean hitting as Australia mopped up Pakistan’s modest total of 150 for six with nine balls to spare.“It was nice to be there at the end to get the boys home,” Smith said. “It was probably a 170-ish wicket, I reckon, so they (Australia) bowled beautifully.“It was just about timing in the end.”With both sides unchanged from Sydney, Pakistan elected to bat after winning the toss but their hopes of a statement innings were dashed by regular top order wickets. Babar Azam was left to piece together the innings with Iftikhar Ahmed before the opener-captain was removed for 50 by a piece of fielding magic from Warner, who threw down the stumps from long-range.Iftikhar slogged his way to an unbeaten 62 to give Pakistan a total to defend. It soon seemed insufficient, however, as Australia skipper Aaron Finch and Warner stormed out of the blocks, smashing 30 runs in three overs before Warner was bowled for 20 by Mohammad Amir.It was Warner’s first dismissal in five T20Is, having been two not out in the rained-out Sydney game and unbeaten with scores of 57, 60 and 100 in the 3-0 series sweep of Sri Lanka.“We are disappointed but Steve Smith took the match away,” Babar said through a translator.“It’s very difficult when we lose early wickets and we have to gain the momentum again.” Australia will seek to seal the series with victory in Perth on Friday.last_img read more

Basketball writers panel gives advice to young writers

first_imgView Gallery (3 Photos)INDIANAPOLIS — While players prepared for Saturday’s Final Four, college and high school students participated in the U.S. Basketball Writers Association Sports Writing Seminar at the NCAA Headquarters on Thursday.Malcolm Moran, former USA Today and New York Times sports writer and now Knight Chair in Sports Journalism and Society at Penn State University, moderated the panel, which included ESPN.com columnist Dana O’Neil, Detroit Free Press beat writer Shannon Shelton (covering Michigan State this weekend), former USBWA president Jim O’Connell and current USBWA president Steve Carp.The five writers spoke from personal experience when giving advice to the students.O’Connell talked about his personal experiences with former UCLA and recently hired St. John’s head coach Steve Lavin, with whom he developed a personal bond about the mafia.Carp said it was also important to talk to the players as people, not just sources.“Let them know that you’re not only using them for a story,” he said.O’Neil said to go to practice every chance possible and to introduce yourself before every press conference.“Don’t be one of the mob,” she said.The group also discussed some of the dangers social media networks have brought not only student-athletes and coaches, but writers.“I think it’s really dangerous to use Facebook or Twitter as your source without talking to a head coach,” O’Neil said.When a student asked what to do if they found incriminating evidence from Facebook, O’Neil said to always talk to the coach or athletic director first to let them know what was going on and ask how they would deal with the information.She also said that not all information from Facebook or Twitter is automatically news.“You have to follow it through and responsively report it,” she said. “We’re hired to be reporters, not regurgitators of information.”She used an example of Kansas player Tyshawn Taylor posting somewhat-offensive rap lyrics on his Facebook after the Kansas basketball and football players got into a fight.“Social networking is like a gun, like a weapon,” Carp said. “It can be useful or harmful.”While social networking was a hot topic, some students were interested in the differences between online and print journalism.O’Neil, the only main online reporter at the panel, said she enjoyed the looser deadlines and longer word-counts. Even though most print reporters write both for the Web and the newspaper, she said they need to find a way to keep the story fresh hours after the game is over.“The shelf life of a game story is very short,” she said. “You have to find a way to make it longer.”One way of doing that is adding a feature element to it. O’Neil used a recent example of writing about Duke player Nolan Smith, whose father played in the Final Four for Louisville 30 years ago.Because of her longer deadlines, she could use a different angle than any of the other writers there.The panelists ended with simple advice to the aspiring reporters: work hard, be prepared and love what you do.“That passion will carry you in the end,” Carp said.A team of Indiana University journalists is reporting for the Final Four Student News Bureau, a project between IU’s National Sports Journalism Center and the NCAA at the men’s tournament in Indianapolis.last_img read more

Of that, Forbes reports that the British boxer took home $55 million ($45 million in salary/winnings, $10 million in endorsements) in pay thus far during 2019 — and that’s not counting the additional check he’ll cash for the Ruiz rematch.Andy Ruiz career recordIn over 10 years as a pro, Andy Ruiz owns a 33-1 record, including 22 knockouts — obviously none bigger than the four knockdowns he used to produce a seventh-round TKO of Joshua as a 15:1 underdog back in June. A December 2016 majority decision loss to Joseph Parker marks Ruiz’ sole loss, although many boxing pundits believe the “Destroyer” did enough to have his hand raised in victory that night.Anthony Joshua career recordAnthony Joshua hauls a 22-1 record (21 KOs) into the Diriyah Arena in Saudi Arabia to take his crack at redemption. The signature victory on the 30-year-old’s pro ledger is a thrilling 11th-round TKO of Wladimir Klitschko at Wembley Stadium in London back in April 2017. The victory made the 2012 Olympic gold medalist the unified world heavyweight champion. He went on to defend that crown against the likes of Carlos Takam, Joseph Parker and Alexander Povetkin, before losing it to Ruiz at Madison Square Garden on June 1. Avenging that loss with a win over Ruiz would be the former world champion’s greatest ring feat yet.
