Tech Boys Basketball Boasts Strong Junior Class [PODCAST]

first_img Tech will participate in the jamboree in Cold Spring this Saturday before opening play November 30 at home against Rogers. St. Cloud Tech boys basketball coach Mike Trewick joined Dave Overlund on WJON’s “Hang Up and Listen” Tuesday to preview the Tiger 2018-2019 basketball team.  The Tigers were 18-9 last season but graduated 6 key seniors.  Tech will be led by junior center Odier Olange and guard Nate Trewick and seniors forwards Tate Caldwell and Jared Yeager.  Trewick says this team lacks the slashers of last year’s team and will need to depend more on outside shooting. 720p HD About Connatix V56892 1080p HD 1/1center_img About Connatix V56892 360p Auto (360p) Visit Advertiser website GO TO PAGE Skip last_img read more

Lagos is the Center of Table Tennis in Africa – Wahid Oshodi

first_imgThe annual Seamaster ITTF Challenge Plus Nigeria Open has continued to attract world class players to the commercial nerve center of Nigeria, Lagos, in the last five years and this has made the tournament to be regarded as Africa’s elite table tennis championships.With the upgrading of the tournament to Challenge Plus by the world table tennis ruling body, chairman of the Main Organising Committee (MOC) of the tournament, Wahid Oshodi believes the quality of players coming this year would surely ignite the tournament. Particularly, with the hosting of the African Club Championships and Cup alongside the Seamaster ITTF Challenge Plus Nigeria Open, Oshodi says Nigerian fans are in for a super treat.For Wahid Oshodi, table tennis has made Lagos the ‘official’ home of the sport in Africa particularly with the consistent staging of the Seamaster ITTF Challenge Plus Nigeria Open and this he said would continue to help local players to test their might against the world’s best.“The knowledge and experience our home-based and young players gain from watching and playing against some of the best players in the world is invaluable. This in part makes up for the fact that our players lack the necessary exposure which comes from travelling and playing on the circuit.“We have been seeing the gains of staging the tournament in the good performances of our younger players on the Junior Circuit. We can see players like Olajide Omotayo, Tobi Falana and Nurudeen Hassan who have improved enough to gain entry into the senior national team. Also importantly thousands of passionate fans and recreational players get to see their heroes at close quarters, thus creating one of the most exciting events in our country,” Oshodi said.The Chairman of the ITTF Nomination Committee, however, acknowledged the challenges. “There are various challenges in staging a tournament of this magnitude but some of the most critical include funding and infrastructural challenges. The tournament has grown in leaps and bounds since it was first conceived and that has led to a need for more funding and an upgrade in terms of the size of the hall and other facilities. The number of people working on the event also grows in tandem with the growth in number of the participants. We are very grateful to all the partners who keep supporting the growth of the event,” he added.For 2019 edition, he said: “We expect a lot more top players. The tournament is now an ITTF Challenge Plus tournament. Lots more prize money – $60,000 – and the all-important increased points which all the players are aiming to get in a bid for Olympic qualification. This year also with three tournaments preceding the Nigeria Open it will be a fantastic festival of top-class table tennis. The Nigerian fans are in for a super treat. “This year we have the ITTF Africa (Western Region) Singles Championships, the Africa Clubs Championship and the Africa Singles Cup which is a qualifier for the World Cup all coming up before the Nigeria Open. All packed into two weeks. From July 29 to August 11, we are assured of the best players on the continent and top players from all over the World. Omar Assar returns this year to try and claim the title from Aruna Quadri. A lot of subplots going on.“But importantly we have a top-level training course for our umpires to be conducted by ITTF’s leading expert which will help improve their knowledge and also a training workshop for our young journalists to better assist them in reporting our sport. It’s a bumper packed fortnight,” Oshodi explained.Keeping an insight into the pedigree of players expected in 2019, Oshodi said: “From the inquiries we have received so far we are expecting entries from the cream of World Table Tennis. Apart from the top players in Africa, we are expecting players from all over the world.  We had 27 countries last year and we expect to beat that number this year by some margin. A lot of players ranked within the top 50 of World table tennis have indicated their interest. Once the prospectus is released in the next couple of weeks we expect the entries to flow in.” Oshodi believes with the present form of African Champion, Aruna Quadri, he has the wherewithal to retain the Nigeria Open title.“Aruna Quadri is getting back into good form after recovering from his hamstring injury which kept him out of the game for a bit. From his latest performances he is in good form and with the Nigerian fans right behind him and all the other Nigerian players he is capable of retaining the title. Last year was a real dream of a tournament for him. It will be tough though with the quality of players expected but you can never rule him out. Aruna is a class act and one of the biggest stars in the world. Playing at home before the ebullient Lagos fans you can fancy him against anybody in the world,” Oshodi enthused. RelatedTABLE TENNIS: 2019 Nigeria Open Seamaster ITTF Challenge Plus Gets Improved Prize MoneyMay 13, 2019In “Table Tennis”Nigeria Open: Austria, Germany Lead 30 Others to Lagos for the 2019 ITTF Challenge PlusJuly 23, 2019In “Table Tennis”Table Tennis: Valuejet PTT Open Considered For ITTF Calendar In 2020December 24, 2019In “Table Tennis”last_img read more

Tamar Braxton reveals she’ll star in her own reality show on We

first_imgPhoto: Monty Brinton/CBS ©2019 CBS Broadcasting, Inc. All Rights Reserved(NEW YORK) — Tamar Braxton’s probably still riding the high from her historic Celebrity Big Brother win, but the singer will have much more to celebrate upon the arrival of her new reality show. Braxton sat down with Wendy Williams Tuesday to share that she’s landed her own series on We TV. While the Bluebird of Happiness vocalist is no stranger to reality TV — she’s been scene-stealing her way through Braxton Family Values since 2011 — her forthcoming spin-off will be the first time she’s carried a show all on her own. Braxton also revealed that her estranged husband Vincent Herbert is also set to appear in the series.   “Vince and I are not enemies,” said Tamar. “We co-parent really, really well.” Braxton and Herbert’s highly-publicized 2017 split was fueled by allegations of domestic violence, family feuds and financial issues. They share a 6-year-old son, Logan Herbert.While details are still scarce regarding the yet-to-be-titled show, Braxton shared that the series will reflect more of a sitcom vibe. “I’m really about my business nowadays,” she added. “In 2019, you have to grow up at some point. I’ll be 42 later on this month.”In the meantime, Tamar’s fans can catch her on the newest season of Braxton Family Values, set to arrive on April 4.  Last month, Tamar became the first African-American to win CBS’ Celebrity Big Brother, taking home a $250,000 prize for her trouble.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Top Putin Critic Found Guilty of Embezzlement, Barring Him from 2018 Presidential Run

first_imgiStock/Thinkstock(MOSCOW) — A Russian court has given the country’s most prominent opposition leader a five-year suspended prison sentence for embezzlement in what critics say is a political trial intended to prevent him from running against President Vladimir Putin in elections next year.Aleksei Navalny, 40, who made his name as an anti-corruption blogger chronicling the alleged ill-gotten gains of top officials, has become one of the leading figures in Russia’s beleaguered anti-Putin opposition. In December, he had declared his intention to run against Putin in the country’s 2018 presidential election, saying that although he has no chance of winning it would be good for the country.But on Wednesday, a court in the provincial city of Kirov found Navalny and his co-defendant, Pyotr Ofitserov, guilty of embezzling around $500,000 from local timber company Kirovles, and gave them suspended sentences of five years and four years respectively. The conviction now means Navalny is potentially barred from running in the presidential election.They both deny the charges, which they say are politically motivated.It is the second time Navalny has been sentenced in what is known as the “Kirovles case,” which was ordered retried by Russia’s Supreme Court in November after the European Court of Human Rights found he had not been given a fair trial.In Wednesday’s hearing, Judge Aleksei Vtyurin again found both men guilty and ordered them to pay fines of around $8,400 each, in addition to their suspended sentences.But speaking after the hearing, Navalny promised he would appeal the verdict and would campaign for president regardless.“Right now I am participating in the election campaign,” Navalny told reporters, referring to the court case against him. “And what we see right now, it’s a kind of telegram that’s come from the Kremlin — that they consider me, my team and those people whose views I represent as too dangerous to participate in the election campaign.”Navalny’s run is an avowed protest campaign against Russia’s Kremlin-controlled politics with no chance of defeating Putin, whose popularity remains high and whose control over the vote will, in any case, be almost total. But the possibility of Navalny highlighting Russia’s democratic deficiencies appears to have concerned authorities enough to have them seemingly move to head it off.The trial is the latest in a series of cases brought against Navalny since he first rose to prominence in street protests five years ago. He has come to be viewed as the Kremlin’s most significant political opponent.In 2013, Navalny led an unprecedented campaign to become Moscow’s mayor, gaining 27 percent of the vote despite being virtually shut out from Russian television and labeled a Western agent by pro-Kremlin media. Since then, the Kremlin has sought to contain him, but has moved cautiously, mindful of sparking fresh demonstrations. In a first trial in Kirov in 2013, he was sentenced to five years in prison, but that sentence was converted to a suspended one after thousands took to the streets in Moscow in protest.In 2014, Navalny was given another three-and-a-half-year suspended sentence in a separate case involving the French company Yves Rocher. Authorities have also jailed Navalny’s brother, who is not involved in politics, allegedly to persuade the activist to drop his opposition work, Navalny has claimed. Ahead of Wednesday’s verdict, Navalny’s supporters said they were sure he would be found guilty.“You’re bringing good news, I hope,” Navalny told the judge as he entered the courtroom before the sentencing on Wednesday. The judge, laughing, said he would find out.Charismatic and with a talent for media performance, Navalny has responded to the campaign against him by effectively trolling it, tweeting irreverently throughout the court hearing. Drawing attention to what he said was the similarity of Wednesday’s verdict to the first, now discredited one, he wrote on Twitter: “It’s boring.”The activist’s modern campaigns are something new for Russia, relying on social media and thousands of enthusiastic young volunteers. His advisers liked to say his Moscow mayoral run was modeled on U.S. President Barack Obama’s 2008 campaign. Recently, Navalny’s group, the Fund for Combatting Corruption, has taken to flying drones with cameras over the vast mansions belonging to the Kremlin’s inner circle, worth far more than their published salaries.Whether Wednesday’s sentence definitively blocks Navalny’s candidacy for president is unclear. Few expect his appeal will produce a different result, but his campaign manager, Leonid Volkov, said that the law was unclear on whether a criminally convicted person can run or not, saying Russia’s constitution permits it, even though its election laws expressly forbid it. Volkov promised the campaign will continue as planned. Recently, Navalny has increasingly refused to obey the restrictions placed on him by the courts, daring the Kremlin to punish him. He was forcibly brought to Kirov from Moscow after he twice refused to attend the hearing.This case against Navalny comes against a backdrop of mounting pressure for the Kremlin’s opponents in Russia. Another well-known opposition organizer, Vladimir Kara-Murza, is currently in critical condition in a Moscow hospital after being poisoned by an unknown substance for the second time in two years. Boris Nemtsov, the country’s most high-profile opposition figure alongside Navalny, was shot dead by a gunman in front of the Kremlin in 2015. Other opposition leaders have been threatened or had embarrassing videos leaked of them.Speaking with ABC News this week, Evgenia Kara-Murza, the poisoned activist’s wife, said that those like her husband and others believed they had to keep working despite the risks.“That only by keeping silent, by running away, people lose,” she said. “When they stay, when they fight, no matter what — like Boris Nemtsov did, like he does himself, like so many of his colleagues do — only in this we can achieve something.”Copyright © 2017, ABC Radio.
