Aussies slam ref after World Cup penalty blow

first_img0Shares0000An 85th-minute equaliser by Syria’s Omar al-Soma (top) raised harrowing memories of the 1997 play-offs, when Australia drew 1-1 with Iran in Tehran but were held 2-2 at home to go out on away goals © AFP / MOHD RASFANMALACCA, Malaysia, Oct 6 – Australian players and media slammed the referee after Syria’s controversial late penalty dented their hopes of reaching next year’s World Cup following a 1-1 play-off draw in Malacca.The Socceroos remain in the box seat ahead of Tuesday’s second leg in Sydney, where the eventual winner will go into a final play-off with the CONCACAF federation’s fourth-placed team. But Omar al-Soma’s 85th-minute equaliser raised harrowing memories of the 1997 play-offs, when Australia drew 1-1 with Iran in Tehran but were held 2-2 at home to go out on away goals.Forward Robbie Kruse even claimed Iranian referee Alireza Faghani — who farcically gave him a yellow card when he went down with a serious injury in the 2015 Asian Cup final — was itching to give the penalty.Australia’s football coach Ange Postecoglou Socceroos coach Ange Postecoglou said he was ‘bemused’ by the referee’s decision © AFP / MOHD RASFANAustralia were 1-0 up after Kruse’s first-half goal but the crucial moment came when Mathew Leckie made contact with al-Soma in the box as they both went up for a header.“It was evident to everyone it wasn’t a penalty,” Kruse told Australian media, adding: “You expect that from this referee, we’ve had him before.“I think he wanted to give it as soon as he made contact.”Socceroos coach Ange Postecoglou said he was “bemused” by the decision, while Leckie called it “very poor”.“It wasn’t like I (made) body contact and tried to put him off, I actually won the header. I don’t know what went through the ref’s mind to give a penalty,” Leckie said.“Everyone’s pissed off about the whole situation because I think everyone in the world that watched the game knows it wasn’t a penalty.”– Under the pump –The Herald Sun said Australia were “robbed” of victory, while one Fox Sports columnist questioned the wisdom of using a referee from Iran, which has close ties with Syria.More worryingly for Australia, they were under the pump for much of the second half, when Soma had a header deflected on to the post and Omar Khribin saw a free kick flash just wide.Postecoglou said his team had struggled with Malaysia’s hot and humid conditions but that it would be a different story in Sydney, when he can call on a number of fresh players.“We want to play really high-tempo and really go at them and test them,” Postecoglou said, adding: “We won’t make tactical changes but we’ve got some players that didn’t play tonight who are in good form and good condition.Australia’s coach Ange Postecoglou said his team had struggled with Malaysia’s hot and humid conditions © AFP / MOHD RASFAN“We’ll make some changes to the XI. When we’re at home we want to attack aggressively. They’ve got to score a goal, they’ve got to open up a little bit at some point. We’ll make sure we take advantage of that.”Australia, who joined the Asian Football Confederation in 2006, are attempting to reach their fourth straight World Cup and fifth overall.Syria are striving to make their World Cup debut after a fairytale qualifying run that has defied the raging civil war in their home country.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

EMMET RUSHE: RETURNING TO EXERCISE AFTER GIVING BIRTH

first_imgBY EMMET RUSHE: Continuing on with last week’s theme of pregnancy and having a new baby, this week we will look at returning to exercise after giving birth.Many “new mammies” want to know when it is safe to begin training again. Every woman is different, but here are some guidelines.If you have been cleared for exercise by your G.P, or if you want further advice, please contact me through the link below.I have trained numerous women after childbirth, some of whom, my own wife included, have had a C-section. Firstly, if you have recently given birth, congratulations! As a new parent myself, I can happily say that being a parent is the most demanding, exhausting and yet wonderful job in the world.Nothing is more awe-inspiring than a new baby who is completely reliant on you.Before starting back into an exercise regime after giving birth, there are some considerations that you will have to look at.The type of birth you had will determine when you are able to safely return/begin an exercise program.If you have had an uncomplicated vaginal delivery, the general guideline is that it is safe to begin 6 weeks after delivery.If it is not your first child and you have been active throughout the pregnancy it is generally safe to return when you feel ready. If you had a C-section or a complicated birth you will have to be checked and cleared by a medical professional before you can begin an exercise program.Please ensure that if you are using a gym or trainer, that you inform them of your situation as there are certain exercises that will have to be avoided depending on the type of birth that you had.There are numerous benefits to exercising after pregnancy.Here are some benefits taken from the ‘Mayo Clinic’“Promote weight loss, particularly when combined with reduced calorie intakeImprove your cardiovascular fitnessRestore muscle strength and toneCondition your abdominal musclesBoost your energy levelsImprove your moodRelieve stressHelp prevent and promote recovery from postpartum depression”Better yet, including physical activity in your daily routine helps you set a positive example for your child now and in the years to come. When returning to exercise your routine.Walking with the buggy is a great way to start; getting out of the house, clearing your head and using the resistance that the buggy provides to work your legs, arms and core.Why not get a few friends or new mothers involved and create a social circle to support and encourage each other?After GP approval, also consider these specific exercises for the core. The Pelvic tiltThe Kegel exercise (pelvic floor)The contraction of the abdominal muscles is an effective way to begin strengthening your core after pregnancy.While some mothers might start moving around within just days of giving birth, don’t expect to resume your old level of exercise right away.In most cases, your joints and ligaments will be looser than usual following birth, which could lead to diminished co-ordination and potential falls.Consider these guidelines from the when undertaking an exercise routine;“Take time to warm up and cool down.Begin slowly and increase your pace gradually.Drink plenty of fluids.Wear a supportive bra.Avoid excessive fatigue.Stop exercising if you feel pain.”Being the parent to a new baby is pretty exhausting.Lack of sleep, hormonal changes, tiredness and bad eating patterns can make the thought of exercise seem like a distant memory.Try and have some support in place that you can tap into whenever you want to engage in physical activity.Seek the support of your partner, family and friendsSome days, you might simply feel too tired for a full workout.That doesn’t mean that you should put physical activity on the back burner, however.Instead, do what you can.Try to schedule time for physical activity.Exercise with a friend to stay motivated.Include your baby, either in a buggy while you walk or lying next to you on the floor while you do abdominal exercises.Remember, exercise after pregnancy might not be easy — but it can do wonders for your well-being, as well as give you the energy you need to care for yourself and your baby.#TrainSmartFor more information, contact me through the link below.https://www.facebook.com/pages/Rushe-Fitness/120518884715118?ref=hl * Emmet is the owner and operator of Rushe FitnessEMMET RUSHE: RETURNING TO EXERCISE AFTER GIVING BIRTH was last modified: December 6th, 2015 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:emmet rusheexercise after birthfitnesscolumnpost natal exerciselast_img read more

IRELAND FACE UPHILL BATTLE AS CROATIA WIN 3-1 IN OPENING GROUP GAME

first_imgIreland face an uphill task to qualify from their group after a disastrous opening game against Croatia. Despite going behind after just three minutes, Ireland battled hard but were up against it against an in-form Croatia side.Shay Given was left helpless as Madzukic put Croatia in front with a nodded header before the teams even settled down. Trapp’s men put their heads down however and equalized through a terrific header by Sean St Ledger.However in the 43rd minute a dubious goal by Jelavic, which looked completely off-side, was allowed to stand.And when Madzukic netted again after just two minutes of the restart, when his header went into the net when it came off the upright only to go in off Given’s head, it was realistically all over.Keith Andrews created three good chances in in the last ten minutes which could have put a different complexion on the game but by that stage Croatia were playing down the clock. Ireland gave the ball away too easily and we were punished for it.Croatia had the ball for long periods and Ireland could not create enough chances which they could convert.With Italy and Spain to come, it looks like it will take nothing short of a miracle for Ireland to go through. IRELAND FACE UPHILL BATTLE AS CROATIA WIN 3-1 IN OPENING GROUP GAME was last modified: June 11th, 2012 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Why Aren’t College Students Using LinkedIn To Find Jobs?

first_imgI believe that the LinkedIn numbers are low because students aren’t thinking about networking until after they graduate and don’t feel like they have enough contacts to add to their profiles since many don’t have real work experience yet. The students who focus on networking starting freshman year are at a great advantage because everyone knows that relationships lead to jobs. Students Need GuidanceStudents are certainly experienced with social media, just not with LinkedIn. While a surprisingly low 46% of student have never used LinkedIn, 90% of the students surveyed “frequently or occasionally” use Facebook. Even for those students who are using LinkedIn, however, it’s still not a priority in their job search. When searching for a job, current students focus their efforts, in order, on:Employer’s Web site (70%)Contact within the company (65%)School career fair (61%)Online job listings site (58%)Social networking – including LinkedIn (26%)Colleges can do more to help. Most students, the survey claims, believe their college is failing to offer adequate networking opportunities. For example, 46% of the students wanted their school to offer more instruction on “how to get jobs.” Approximately 50% of students either “haven’t used their career services department or had a bad experience” with the department.  Schawbel says he hears this theme often when speaking on campuses. Students need more than resume reviews these days. They need a stronger rolodex and a better idea of how to go about their job search. (Colleges) should bring in speakers, hold more career fairs – not just one each season – and help make connections between students and alumni. Alumni like to recruit from their alma matter. The University PerspectiveI asked my former university, the University of Michigan, how it helps current students leverage professional social networking. I spoke with Lynne Sebille-White, senior assistant director of the university’s Career Center. She told me that “we encourage students to use LinkedIn to identify professionals and alumni working in their fields of interest. We also routinely recommend students check out our alumni group on LinkedIn.” She added, however, that many students are intimidated by LinkedIn – worried that their “partial profile” may not provide an effective representation of the student’s abilities and prior experiences. “Current students usually have little experience [with professional] networking so we need to coach them through that process. Those who come by this skill more naturally use social media extensively to find and make professional connections which prove quite helpful in the search process.”  Nonetheless, Sebille-White was effusive about the power of social media in general for current college students. “Social media allows you to showcase your skills, experience and unique talents in a very public manner… Social media provides amazing access to others in a way that was not previously available. You can find almost anyone and if you’re smart, you can make a positive impression by how you manage your online presence.” Of course, it matters more in some positions more than others. “In fields like PR, corporate communications, and journalism, you need to have a presence on social media and leave a positive impression,” she said. “You can’t get hired in these fields if you aren’t showcasing your interest and savvy in using social media and showcasing your writing style.” The bottom line, she concluded, is that “every job seeker needs to think about their personal brand. Social media now allows folks to be seen as experts in ways that were not previously possible. ” A Student PerspectiveThat’s one side of the story. To hear the other side, I also contacted a current Michigan student – not referred to me by the university – who landed a paid internship following her sophomore year.Now a junior, Rachel Bradley-Haas has just accepted a paid summer position with a different company in her field (industrial engineering). Turns out, she actively uses LinkedIn.Bradley-Haas initially created a LinkedIn profile because companies she was interested in listed jobs through the site – and these typically required she respond with her LinkedIn profile. She noted, however, that Twitter did not prove helpful in connecting her with potential employers. Facebook proved useful after the search. For those companies she did connect with – even if she was not offered a job or if she turned their offer down – she typically “liked” the company on Facebook.Survey Notes: Millennial Branding bills itself as a “Gen Y research and consulting firm.” AfterCollege is “the largest online career network for college students and recent graduates.” The two firms emailed “thousands” of registered students across the U.S. and 600 responded. The companies told me that “just over half” of those who responded are currently attending schools with more than 10,000 students, and that 66% of all respondents are females. Image courtesy of Shutterstock. Picture of Dan Schawbel taken from his site. Image of Lynne Sebille-White courtesy of the University of Michigan.  A Comprehensive Guide to a Content Audit Tags:#education#employment#Facebook#LinkedIn#social networking The jobless numbers in the U.S. remain an ongoing concern throughout the country. For college students and recent graduates, often dubbed “millennials,” the numbers are even worse. More than half of recent graduates are either unemployed or underemployed. Despite these figures, according to a recent survey, nearly half of current college students have never used LinkedIn – typically thought of as the social network for job seekers.This seems like a wasted opportunity – for both students and LinkedIn.  I spoke to Dan Schawbel, founder of Millennial Branding, about the recent survey his firm conducted with AfterCollege. Despite the fact that most students are extremely social-media savvy, often heavy users of Facebook and Twitter, for example, students are  avoiding LinkedIn.

There are a lot of tools to create and manipulate 3D content for the web as well, and it’s very easy to pick up and learn. For those who know their way around HTML and CSS, Google Web Designer can quickly switch between a design view and a code view. All of the code is editable and updates as soon as changes are made in Design View.The software is now available in beta and, for now, free to download.
