Embed from Getty ImagesAcademy graduate Ozzy Kakay has thanked QPR boss Ian Holloway for giving him his first taste of Championship action – despite it coming in the most trying of circumstances.The 19-year-old defender came on for the final 10 minutes of Rangers’ game at Brighton on Tuesday, 12 years after first joining the club.Kakay admitted his league debut could not have been tougher – with his side 3-0 down and reduced to 10 men against the new Championship front-runners – but was still grateful to Holloway.“The manager is great around the training ground and as a younger player, you really get the feeling he is looking after you,” Kakay told QPR’s website.“It is great for me, because it shows he has faith in me which gives my confidence a real boost.“The manager told me it was important for us to keep our shape because we were down to ten men, so he told me to do that and to relax and enjoy it.“Brighton had a lot of the ball and were dictating the game a bit.“The pace was a lot different to the other games I have played n, you could really notice that, so it was a good experience for me.“I have been in and around the first team this season, and it was brilliant for that moment to come for me.”Kakay spent the second half of last season on loan at Livingston and made 12 appearances for the Scottish Championship side, before making his senior QPR debut in the EFL Cup against Rochdale this term.

Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest The Nutrient Stewardship Council, on behalf of the 4R Nutrient Stewardship Certification Program, is seeking to contract with consultants as 4R Nutrient Stewardship Certification Program Auditors.Launched in March 2014, the voluntary certification program is a concentrated effort by the agriculture industry to significantly reduce and prevent applied nutrients from running off fields, which has contributed to harmful algal blooms in Lake Erie. The program is based on the best available science for nutrient recommendations and application, and encourages the adoption of 4R Nutrient Stewardship, which refers to using the Right Source of nutrients at the Right Rate and Right Time in the Right Place. The program requirements also include education and record-keeping components to ensure that new practices related to nutrient stewardship are adopted by program participants and shared with their grower customers.The third-party auditor will provide an evaluation of the implementation of the program’s requirements, providing feedback to program participants and the Nutrient Stewardship Council. Auditors will be required to communicate, travel to and work cooperatively with program participants; conduct onsite and/or desk audits; and create audit report packages; among other duties.For a complete list of position duties and qualifications and to download an application package for the position, visit http://4rcertified.org/2016/08/4r-nutrient-stewardship-certification-program-seeking-auditors-3/ or contact Andrew Allman, executive director of the Nutrient Stewardship Council, at 614-326-7520 ext. 4 or [email protected] will be accepted through Sept. 21.The 4R Nutrient Stewardship Certification Program is governed and guided by the Nutrient Stewardship Council, a diverse set of stakeholders from business, government, university and non-governmental sectors with a common goal of maintaining agricultural productivity while also improving the quality of Lake Erie and its contributing watersheds. The program is administered by the Ohio AgriBusiness Association. For more information, visit 4Rcertified.org, email [email protected] or call 614-326-7520.

Bay Area startup Play-i is taking another approach. The company is literally making physical robots to encourage tangible play with technology. See also: How To Raise The Next Zuckerberg: 6 Coding Apps For Kids“Young children learn from physical interaction,” said Akhil Anumolu, Play-i’s marketing manager. “Why not teach them to program using physical objects?”“One robot per child,” is Play-i’s slogan, but that’s not intended to bring visions of a child-sized robot army to mind. The current prototype is about the size of a radio-controlled toy car and comes with many interchangeable (but choke-proof) parts. By connecting one of the pieces of the robot to another, kids can cause the robot to repeat its actions infinitely and act out a loop. Other parts illustrate concepts like functions and if/then statements. An app is also in the works so that kids can manipulate the robot using a tablet or computer. “We’re not just going to use a screen, there are already tons of apps that do that,” said Anumolu. “We’re going to change the way kids are going to learn programming.”It’s a tall order for a product that doesn’t exist yet, or even have a finalized prototype. But the startups’ pedigreed quartet of founders—all formerly high-ranking employees at Google, Apple, Symantec, and Frog Design—lends it credibility. Play-i has already received $1 million in seed funding from Madrona Ventures and Google Ventures.As the children of the founders’ friends and families test the robot, it continues to change slightly in scope. Right now, Anumolu estimates the finished product will cost less than $100 and be marketed at children ages five to 12. “Their imaginations are actually what’s helping us build this product,” he said. “We’ve seen kids make it into a dragon and program it to attack toy houses, and we’ve seen other kids make it into a pet and teach it to follow them around.”Play-i’s robot prototype will be finalized by August, and released to the world in the form of a Kickstarter in mid-September. And after that, a nation of mass produced robots, one per child? That’s just the half of it. “It’s not just that we want to make a great product,” said Anomolu. “We also want to push for the U.S. education system to start teaching this in school. Whether they use our product or just in general, computer science is something we believe is necessary.”Photo by JD Hancock IT + Project Management: A Love Affair 3 Areas of Your Business that Need Tech Now Related Posts Cognitive Automation is the Immediate Future of…
Pakistan’s strategy of stocking their side with spinners finally paid rich dividends as their 32-run victory over Australia, in conjunction with India’s ouster, helped them keep their record of making the semi-finals of every World Twenty20.In response to Pakistan’s 149 for six on a slow track at the R Premadasa Stadium here on Tuesday, Australia posted 117 for seven, which was just five runs more than what they needed to seal their own final-four spot.The star of the show was 20-yearold left-arm spinner Raza Hasan, who once again opened the bowling. His unerring accuracy was rewarded with perhaps the biggest scalp of the tournament the in-form Shane Watson (8).Captain Mohammad Hafeez then got David Warner, lbw, and Australia never recovered from their five-over score of 19 for two. Hafeez didn’t deploy a single over of pace till the 18th, and the Aussies seemed unable to get the ball off the square, thanks to the accuracy and skill of the bowlers and some uncharacteristically excellent fielding.A 10-over score of 45 for three didn’t inspire any confidence, and once the big-hitting Cameron White was caught off Hafeez and Glenn Maxwell became Hasan’s second victim, the Aussies decided to pull the shutters down and aim for the 112-run ‘safety’ target.Even then, it took a herculean effort from Hussey to get them close, as he struck a six and three boundaries to take them past the 100-run mark.Earlier, Nasir Jamshed’s half-century and his 79-run stand for the third wicket with Kamran Akmal had brought Pakistan out of an early stutter.In the Powerplay, they had lost Hafeez and Imran Nazir with just 29 on the board, but Jamshed and the older Akmal played sensible cricket to get them back on their feet.A boundary each from the batsmen off Brad Hogg finally gave the innings some momentum in the 10th over, before Jamshed exploded with a six each off Pat Cummins and Xavier Doherty.advertisement
