Can the US sweep women’s 100m hurdles?

first_imgRaymond ‘KC’ Graham: It has been tough going so far for the United States, but this event could bring some joy for them as history could be created. Andre Lowe: First, congrats on your call of Van Niekerk winning the men’s 400m. Anyway, yes, this is certainly one of their strongest events and one that they have totally dominated all year. Only Tiffany Porter from Great Britain breaks the list of six Americans among the top seven hurdlers this year. We could see a sweep of medals here. KC: Yes, but they will be keeping their fingers crossed as they wouldn’t like a repeat of the men’s 400m hurdles, where the two top athletes in the World going into the Championship were not even in the final. This being an obstacle event, anything can happen. Andre: Hurdles are tricky and we know there will be incidents. Sharika Nelvis, though, seems like a true competitor, Dawn Harper-Nelson is experienced, Kendra Harrison is dangerous, and the defending champion Brianna Rollins is always a factor. Those are the key names in this event, along with Porter. KC: Harper-Nelson will be hoping for a big result as, after being seventh in Berlin, third in Daegu, and fourth in Moscow, time is running out for her. And if she does not win now, I don’t see her doing so in the future as there are too many young rising stars from her own country who are ready to pounce. Andre: I don’t see Harper-Nelson finishing in the top two spots. She may very well find herself in a scrap with the likes of Porter for bronze. KC: You could be right, but this is the venue where she won her first and only global title, being Olympic champion and we have seen several athletes at the Championship repeating their Beijing success. This could be good motivation for her. Andre: Like you have pointed out in the past, she’ll struggle with anything faster than 12.5. This final will be faster than 12.5. She can forget about gold and silver for that matter. She has a chance at the bronze, though. KC: It should, and as I have always said, any winning time under 12.40 seconds, she will not be a factor. I think the winning time here is going to be around 12.35 to 12.38 seconds. Andre: I’m liking Nelvis for the gold medal. I like her technique and her mental strength. She likes a good head-on battle and it’s going to take strong hearts to win this. I also think the defending champ, Brianna Rollins, will be ready to run in the 12.3 range and looks like she can challenge for a top-two spot. KC: Two years ago after running 12.26 seconds, I thought Rollins was going to dominate for a long time, but things have changed since and I see her fighting out for bronze with Harper-Nelson. I don’t see Nelvis losing this one. I have her winning in around 12.32, with Kendra Harrison finishing second, and the United States creating history by taking the top four spots. I also think Jamaica’s Danielle Williams will be in the final. Andre: Williams can go as fast as 12.6 if she works on certain areas and that will get her in the final for sure. Nelvis from Rollins, from Harrison – that’s your top three!last_img read more

‘Ghost of Mira Loma’ at rest

first_imgLANCASTER – Somewhere up there, Meyer Bernard Himelstaub must be smiling. The man entrenched in Antelope Valley lore as the “Ghost of Mira Loma” was given a proper funeral nearly 65 years to the day of his horrifying death. Himelstaub was a 22-year-old British Royal Air Force cadet assigned to the Antelope Valley’s War Eagle Field – now the site of Mira Loma county detention center on 60th Street West and Avenue I – when he was decapitated by a taxiing plane he accidentally walked into on Feb. 13, 1942. Himelstaub was a Jew who escaped Nazi-dominated Poland as a child. He was an aspiring military pilot who historians say was determined to fight the Nazis in World War II. Among those who spoke at the event was Rabbi David Hoffman. Tears streamed across the faces of several Hillview students during the ceremony. The students’ study of Himelstaub’s life compelled them to become involved in the ceremony. “He’s become like family,” Hillview student Dulcie Adhiambo said. “His legacy was that he was going for his dream of going to fight Hitler, even though he didn’t really fullfil it. We just wanted everyone to know what really happened.” The ceremony concluded with missing-man formation flyover used by the Royal Air Force to honor dead pilots. The flyover featured vintage Steerman and AT-6 planes. Antelope Valley military historian Bob Alvis said Himelstaub likely flew a Steerman, an aviation classic that features two stacked wings. “You never want to forget our fallen, and this was a nice gesture to show the English that we appreciate your fallen,” said Alvis, who helped organize the event. “The ghost of War Eagle Field is not a great legacy for a fallen cadet … it’s kind of become a carnival sideshow,” Alvis said. “It is part of his history and we will live with that, but as far as honoring his legacy, this is what we want to remember, not his terrorizing kids on Halloween.” gideon.rubin@dailynews.com (661) 267-7802160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! He was buried at Lancaster cemetery three days after his death, thousands of miles away from family. Sheriff’s deputies and inmates have reported inexplicable events over the years, fueling speculation that Himelstaub’s restless spirit was haunting the Antelope Valley. On Friday, the Antelope Valley attempted to make peace with Himelstaub’s spirit, honoring the man’s life in a ceremony in which a new headstone was unveiled at his burial site. Several prominent civic and community leaders including mayors from Lancaster and Palmdale, a representative from the British Commonwealth War Graves Commission and an eighth-grade Hillview Middle School history class instrumental in organizing the event were among about 200 people who attended the ceremony. A War Graves Commission request that Himelstaub be given a new headstone provided the impetus for the ceremony. last_img read more

Gor faced with headache over foreign quota

first_img0Shares0000Gor Mahia left back Shafik Batambuze in training at Everton’s Finch Farm training ground on November 4, 2018. PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluNAIROBI, Kenya, Nov 26 – Kenyan Premier League champions Gor Mahia and their coaching team have tough decisions to make before the season starts after surpassing their foreign quota of five with the signing of Ugandan duo Erisa Ssekisambu and Shafik Batambuze.The duo’s arrival from champions Ugandan champions Vipers SC and Tanzanian side Singida United brings the total number of foreign players at the club to six with Ivorian forward Ephraim Guikan having returned to the club following the exit of immediate former head coach Dylan Kerr. The others are Burundians Karim Nizigiyimana and Francis Mustafa and Rwandese striker Jacques Tuyisenge.Of the six, Nzigiyimana’s contract at the club lapses at the end of the season and a decision is yet to be made on whether or not it will be renewed.“It is a challenge that we have but the technical committee will deal with it very soon. We will find a solution,” Gor Mahia chair Ambrose Rachier said.Gor Mahia’s Ephraim Guikan vies for the ball with USM Alger’s Mohammed Bekhenmassa during a CAF Confederation Cup match at the Kasarani Stadium on May 16, 2018. PHOTO/Raymond MakhayaGuikan who joined the club at the beginning of the year had already decided to leave the club but after Kerr’s exit made an about-turn and returned to training.“Guikan had a very interesting relationship with the coach and had left and already found a club in Algeria which he wanted to sign for. But when he heard that the coach left, he decided to come back and is already training with the team,” the tactician stated.Kenyan Premier League and Football Kenya Federation regulations only allow for five foreign players per team whilst in CAF assignments, there is no limit on the number of foreigners to be fielded by a club.Gor Mahia start their CAF Champions League campaign on Wednesday but have to make the tough decisions by December 8 when the new season starts.Meanwhile, the club expects to unveil a new head coach before the start of the new season on December 8 with Rachier saying they have received applications from 53 coaches.The club has whittled down the list to seven and they will reduce it further to three by the end of the week.Former Gor Mahia head coach Dylan Kerr and his assistant Zedekiah Otieno share a joke with Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga when he visited the team hotel on November 5, 2018. Looking on are Kerr’s friends from the UK. PHOTO/Timothy Olobulu“There are several key areas that we are looking for in getting the new coach. We are looking at language, experience and also if the coach has been to Africa before. It is very important to get someone who understands the terrain well,” Rachier said.He added; “We have a technical committee which is looking at all that and soon we will unveil him. We have to do so before the season starts,” further stated the club chair.Rachier unveiled the club’s new signings and noted that the names of those released or sent on loan will be released in new course.Batambuze and Ssekisambu were among the players unveiled as well as the returning Kenneth Muguna.The club has also signed striker Eric Ombija from their junior team with the youngster having spent last season on loan at Coast Stima.Also coming on board were Pascal Ogweno (Kariobangi Sharks), Nicholas Kipkurui (Zoo Kericho), Geoffrey Ochieng (Western Stima) and Castor Ogendo from Kenyatta University.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Jukeboxes get digital tuneup

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORE11 theater productions to see in Southern California this week, Dec. 27-Jan. 2160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! BOSTON (AP) The Sevens, a beer-and-wine tavern with an oak bar worn smooth by decades of drinkers, has two amenities that set it apart: a real cork dart board, and arguably one of the best jukeboxes east of the Mississippi River. From early Bruce Springsteen and Patsy Cline to rare Rolling Stones tunes, the jukebox more than the darts or the dark wood benches sets a rollicking mood that pulls people through the door. This spring, the tavern took a leap into the digital age with a new Internet-fueled jukebox that can access hundreds of thousands of songs. “I love it,” says James McCarthy, 39, a kitchen worker who feeds the wall-mounted machine $25 a night to keep his toes tapping behind the bar. “You can go back and forth from hearing old Aerosmith to all the sudden you’ll hear C+C Music Factory to country-western.” At tens of thousands of bars and restaurants in the United States, patrons can now listen to songs stored on hard drives or downloaded from remote servers. Some find the change a refreshing departure from the limited selection of records or CDs of old jukeboxes. Others lament the transformation of an American icon. They say the smaller collections of compact discs or 45s in traditional jukeboxes gave barrooms a distinct feel that gets washed away by the new technology’s nearly unlimited choice and flashy screens reminiscent of video poker machines. “I feel like you have the option to find more songs, but there’s not as much personality,” says Kate Nies, 26, who feeds her dollars to a traditional chrome CD jukebox in Charlie’s Kitchen in Harvard Square in Cambridge. On the high-tech models, a touch screen has replaced the window where records could be seen spinning, and there is now a slot where customers can dip credit cards. The jukebox, which has roots in the coin-operated pianos and penny-slot photographs of the late 19th century, has come a long way over the years. In 1934, David Rockola’s vending-machine company introduced a box that offered a choice of 12 songs the Model A Multi-Selector spun 78s. With radio in its infancy, jukeboxes became the place to discover new music. In the 1950s, the production of smaller 45-speed records bumped the number of songs a jukebox could play to 100. Then the arrival of compact discs pushed the capacity up over 1,000 in the 1980s. While the selections grew, individual jukeboxes retained their unique flavor, says John Papa, owner of the National Jukebox Exchange in Mayfield, N.Y., which sells and restores classics. “Even 1,000 songs created a certain feel in a room that a jukebox with 400,000 songs can’t replace,” Papa says. “People get used to that particular jukebox. They know that B3 sticks every once in a while. They know that J4 is their favorite song.” Montreal-based TouchTunes Music has supplied 17,000 digital jukeboxes across the U.S. and provides access to a digital library of a million songs through a dial-up or broadband Internet connection. Nostalgia has its place, but today’s music fans demand more, says John Taylor, president of San Francisco-based Ecast, which supplies the software and provides music for 6,000 jukeboxes entirely over broadband Internet connections. “The 100-CD jukebox maps the old world,” says Taylor, whose company sells 300 new Internet jukeboxes a month. “Our products meet what young people want today as far as choice.” Jukebox makers such as Rock-Ola build machines that house the Ecast technology, from sleek wall models to classics that look like something Arthur Fonzarelli would have elbowed on the sitcom “Happy Days.” The contemporary Ecast models are like giant wall-mounted iPods, with high-resolution touch screens that flash with advertisements as customers use their fingers to troll for tunes. Inside each machine is a hard drive loaded with up to 300 albums and costing an average of 50 cents per song, with owners setting their own prices. For a few more credits, patrons connect to the Internet to download a track from Ecast’s digital library from servers in Sunnyvale, Calif. that hold more than 18,000 albums. More quarters allow customers to jump their turn in line so their songs play next. “It’s that choice that people get online, that they learn to expect,” says Taylor. “They like to exercise that choice when they are in a social environment with a drink in their hand.” The new machines have reinvigorated the jukebox industry, bumping sales at Los Angeles-based Rock-Ola up 50 percent over the past two years, says owner Glenn Streeter. There are, however, drawbacks to the Internet models. Not all artists have licensing agreements with Ecast and TouchTunes, leaving noticeable gaps in the online libraries. Springsteen, Led Zeppelin, the Beatles and Billy Joel haven’t signed on, for example. Others have complained that the Internet jukeboxes can offer some patrons too many choices. After too many cocktails, a barfly may subject other patrons to albums that were better left forgotten perhaps a Devo, Meatloaf or a nonsensical Frank Zappa record. “The one guy who is a Frank Zappa nut is going to love it,” says Papa, the classic jukebox aficionado. “But everybody else is going to be saying, What the heck?’” At the Sevens in Boston, McCarthy says the diversity is the new jukebox’s strength. He no longer hears Johnny Cash’s “Ring of Fire” at least eight times a night, as he did with the old CD model. The online catalog includes so many obscure tracks, McCarthy says he found something by the Pittsburgh symphony and two albums from the Ohio State Marching Band. “I think you only need one Ohio State Marching Band,” McCarthy says with a laugh. “I don’t think too many people come in and say, You know what, I really need to hear a good marching band.’”last_img read more
