first_imgThe Angels got some help for Martin Maldonado, inking veteran catcher Rene Rivera to a one-year $2.8 million deal on Tuesday night.Maldonado won a Gold Glove in his first season with the Angels, but the workload of a major-league leading 137 games behind the plate contributed to a deterioration of his offensive game in 2017. He hit .183 in the second half.Rivera, 34, hit .252 with 10 homers in 74 games with the New York Mets and Chicago Cubs last season. He is a career .220 hitter, though.Related Articles Rivera, who has played parts of nine seasons in the majors with six other teams, carries a strong defensive reputation. He has thrown out 36 percent of would-be base-stealers throughout his career. Pitchers have a 3.67 ERA throwing to Rivera in his career.The addition of Rivera means it’s likely that neither Perez nor Graterol will make the opening day roster. With Perez out of options, he would seem to be a trade candidate. The Angels also have veteran Curt Casali, who they signed to a minor league deal in November, to provide depth at Triple-A.In order to clear a spot on the 40-man roster for Rivera, the Angels designated left-hander Nate Smith for assignment. Smith, who had been one of their top pitching prospects, is going to miss the 2018 season after undergoing shoulder surgery. Angels spring training primer: Starting rotation Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Still, if the Angels believe that Rivera could hit and play defense better than Juan Graterol or Carlos Perez, it could allow the Angels to give Maldonado more days off. That could keep Maldonado fresher throughout the season.last_img read more

Photo/ Gerald AndersonKISII, Kenya, Dec 9 – Two sublime goals from Emmah Okwoyo and Carolyne Atieno inspired Ugari Starlets from Migori to the final of the Girls Nyanza Region Chapa Dimba Na Safaricom after beating Ekenyoro from Nyamira 2-1 in the semi-final staged at the Gusii Stadium on Saturday.Ugari will battle it out with Nyando’s Plateau Queens in Sunday’s final after they thumped Omobera Girls from Nyamira 4-1 in the first semi-final. Ugari took control of the first half and they could have gone up by two goals in the opening half hour had they converted the open opportunities. First Janet Najoro saw her feeble shot easily collected by the Ekenyoro keeper Vickline Nyokoni in the box.The second chance that came minutes later could have seen Millicent Mudegani send her side ahead but the deadly attacker just missed the target by a whisker after her loop effort went over the bar.Mudegari made Nyokoni work more when she unleashed a shot that rattled the woodwork before the keeper saved the danger.Ugari continued to pile pressure on Ekenyoro goal and had a striker reached at the box on time to tap in a Okwoyo’s cross, then the Migori side could be celebrating for the opener but unfortunately no one was there.Ugari’s pressure on Ekenyoro finally paid off after Okwoyo skillfully from a tight angle pulled a thunderbolt that caught the keeper flat foot to open the scores on the stroke of half time.-Second half-Ugari reached the final after beating Ekenyoro 2-1 at the Gusii Stadium on Saturday 9th December 2017.

first_imgJose Mourinho’s stadium ban for Saturday’s match at Stoke was imposed after the Chelsea boss unleashed an expletive-laden half-time attack on referee Jonathan Moss and then refused to leave the officials’ dressing room at West Ham’s Upton Park.The Football Association on Friday released the written reasons for the case which Mourinho opted not to contest, instead missing Saturday’s Premier League encounter at Stoke’s Britannia Stadium.Referee Moss’ testimony from half-time of the October 24 clash between West Ham and Chelsea was key, with Mourinho furious after Nemanja Matic had been sent-off for two bookable offences and the visitors denied two goals, one due to goal-line technology and the other due to offside.“When myself and my colleagues left the field of play at half time, as we entered the tunnel area to get to our dressing room, Mr Mourinho the Chelsea manager was waiting for us clearly agitated and began aggressively asking about first half decisions,” Moss says in the written reasons.“Rather than publically (sic) speak to him I asked him to step into the entrance of my dressing room escorted by Simon Sutton, the West Ham United security manager.“Mr Mourinho asked me about a tackle, an offside and a goal line clearance. I gave him brief answers to his questions. After this I asked him to leave the dressing room area.“He refused. I asked him again. After he refused again I asked Mr Sutton to escort him from the room. At this point Mr Mourinho became very aggressive and animated.“He shouted that you ******* referees are weak… (Arsenal manager Arsene) Wenger is right about you… you are ******* weak.“I advised Mr Mourinho not to take his position in the technical area for the second half due to his actions.”Reports from the assistant referees and fourth official corroborated Moss’ comments, the written reasons said.Mourinho was informed of the charge on October 26 and admitted it three days later before the sanction was announced on Monday.The Blues boss chose not to appeal, announcing his decision on Friday.“It is clear from both the letter from Mr Mourinho and his submissions that he regrets the incident and to his credit he made an early admission,” the written reasons said.“His behaviour was in the opinion of the commission unacceptable and he showed a total lack of respect for the match officials and the sanctuary of their changing room.“That is a most serious matter and has to be dealt with accordingly.”The three-man commission argued a financial penalty “has little or no impact upon his behaviour” after assessing his previous disciplinary matters. He was, though, fined £40,000.The commission also determined a touchline ban would be insufficient, given he would still have access to the tunnel area.A stadium ban was therefore considered the appropriate penalty.Mourinho on Friday accepted the punishment, having failed in an appeal against a suspended one-match stadium ban and £50,000 fine for a separate offence for comments made about officials following the loss to Southampton.The Chelsea boss said: “I decided to give up. I know the result of that appeal already.“It’s stupid to fight a fight that you know you have already lost.” The FA have released the written reasons stating why the Portuguese manager was handed a stadium ban 1last_img read more

first_imgThe Indigenous Dance Academy practicing in Tembisa. (Images: Redbull Amaphiko)The Indigenous Dance Academy (IDA) is making waves internationally with its choreography on display in a new music video by Sons of Kemet, the British jazz band and winner of a Music of Black Origin award.The IDA is a community-based dance project in Tembisa, in Ekurhuleni, that aims to solve social problems through dance.PANTSULA IS INTERNATIONALIts pantsula crew was filmed earlier this year for the video. Sons of Kemet’s front man, Shabaka Hutchings, had seen the dancers during his yearly visits to South Africa.Pantsula is a highly energetic dance form that originated in the black townships of South Africa during the apartheid era.“I’ve been interested in the synthesis of Sons of Kemet’s music with African dance for a while,” Hutchings, an award-winning saxophonist, composer and bandleader, told news site Redbull Amaphiko. “The challenge was always to find a dance style which portrayed the same aesthetic as our music and wasn’t simply pasting one genre upon another.”The band Sons of Kemet.Once he saw pantsula dancers, he said, he knew it would fit with the band’s music.“Indigenous Dance Academy’s mission is to provide dancers with an artistic education that fosters excellence in all forms of street dance,” explained IDA founder Jarrel Mathebula. “The key goal for the academy is to instil in its dancers a desire to have a positive influence within their community.”Dancing to jazz was a first for the group and they welcomed the new experience.“We’re not used to dancing to jazz but this opportunity got us out of our comfort zone,” said Mathebula. “I had to learn about Sons of Kemet through their music and feel them through their art and I fell in love with the song 30 seconds in.”FOR YOUTH BY YOUTHThe academy was born out of the realisation that Tembisa youth faced a battery of social ills, such as drugs and alcohol abuse, peer pressure and petty crime, and teenage pregnancy. A lack of art centres and extramural activities at schools also meant the youngsters in the area were susceptible to these evils.“The project is a movement for youth lead by youth for young people who are excluded from learning due to poverty, political unrest, discrimination or cultural bias,” explained Mathebula. “This is led by young people with the belief in the power of social connectivity and a passion to drive change.”last_img read more
