Rotherham United appoint Alan Stubbs as manager on three-year deal

first_img Alan Stubbs: The former Everton defender leaves his role as head coach of Hibernian Alan Stubbs has been appointed manager of Rotherham United on a three-year deal. The Championship side have been without a boss since Neil Warnock’s departure at the end of the season and John Doolan follows him to the AESSEAL New York Stadium as assistant manager. The duo leave their roles at Scottish Championship side Hibernian, where they oversaw a Scottish Cup final win over Rangers last month.News broke on Tuesday night that Stubbs had agreed to turn his back on Hibs despite having a year left to run on his contract, but the announcement was delayed after negotiations over compensation dragged on for almost 24 hours.And after a package could not be agreed between the two clubs, Stubbs and Doolan were forced to quit their positions at Easter Road in order to force the move through.Hibs initially rejected Rotherham’s advances last week but – after meeting with their manager on Monday – “reluctantly” allowed him to open discussions before further digging their heels in over compensation.Stubbs, 44, made over 500 professional appearances for the likes of Everton, Bolton and Celtic as a central defender before taking his first job in management at Easter Road in 2014. 1last_img read more

2010: over 650 000 tickets sold

first_img11 November 2009Tickets to the 2010 Fifa World Cup™ are in big demand, with 650 527 tickets having being sold so far, says the 2010 Organising Committee (OC).OC chief executive Danny Jordaan said that of these tickets, 345 894 had been bought by South Africans and 304 633 by overseas fans. He said the United States had so far bought the most tickets with 82 603, followed by the United Kingdom with 48 926 and Germany with 23 924.The figures included bookings made as of 28 September.Speaking to a parliamentary committee in Cape Town this week, Jordaan said that ticket sales to Southern African Development Community (SADC) and other African countries were disappointing. “We are very disappointed by our neighbouring countries, because it’s not what we anticipated,” he said.However, Jordaan expected that there would be an increase in demand for tickets after the Final Draw of the teams, which will be held in Cape Town in December.As the excitement surrounding the World Cup gains momentum, tickets have been in high demand worldwide which have led to illegal ticket sales, he said, adding that Fifa was working closely with international authorities to crack down on illegal tickets.“While genuine tickets were sold online exclusively via the official website Fifa.com, unscrupulous individuals are taking advantage of the great appeal of this event by trying to use the internet to sell tickets they do not possess,” Fifa said in a statement.Source: BuaNewslast_img read more

African pension fund giant relists on JSE

first_imgAfrica’s biggest retirement fund administrator, Alexander Forbes, on Thursday became the 11th company to list on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE) this year.The company’s return to the bourse’s main board followed its delisting in 2007, when it was bought by a private equity consortium for R8.2-billion.It listed with a market capitalisation of around R10.9-billion – putting it into the top 25% of companies listed on the JSE – and saw its stock jump by 14 percent to R8.55 a share by 9.15am.The listing was preceded by a R3.7-billion public offering last week – South Africa’s largest flotation in four years, according to news agency Reuters.“Investors were drawn by the regular income from its pension management and insurance businesses, and the potential for growth in sub-Saharan Africa, where financial services are still developing,” Reuters reported.The company is a leading employee benefits consulting, actuarial, investment and administration services provider and retirement fund administrator, with R275-billion in assets under administration as at the end of March this year.Alexander Forbes brings the number of financial services companies listed on the JSE to 28. “We are delighted to welcome Alexander Forbes back to the JSE, where it lists in the financial services sector, one of the most vibrant on the JSE,” JSE CEO Nicky Newton-King said in a statement.Statistics South Africa (SSA) estimates that the country’s financial services sector created 13 000 new jobs in the 2013/14 financial year, and currently employs over 1.8-million people.The JSE is Africa’s biggest bourse, and one of the top 20 exchanges in the world in terms of market capitalisation.SAinfo reporterlast_img read more

Dusting Off My Inner Nerd

first_img ShareEmailPrint To learn more, read: Posted on December 22, 2010June 20, 2017By: Seth Cochran, Young Champion of Maternal HealthClick 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 email this to a friend (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)This blog post was contributed by Seth Cochran, one of the fifteen Young Champions of Maternal Health chosen by Ashoka and the Maternal Health Task Force at EngenderHealth. He will be blogging about her experience every month, and you can learn more about him, the other Young Champions, and the program here.Like most engineers, I spent my youth either taking household electronics apart or playing with legos. Both activities exhibit a fascination with the simple pieces that make up more complex objects.Surrounded by naked circuit boards, I no longer posses the desire to destroy a radio in search of understanding its components. In a former life as a finance guy, I let my inner nerd trade in the bucket of legos for a copy of Excel with every costing function you can imagine.My name is Seth, and I’m a costing nerd.Nothing can teach you more about a system than understanding the economics that make it tick. Not only can you see which parts of the system consume the most resources, but you can also determine where subsets of the system might have standalone viability.This month of my placement has been about gathering up all I know about the EHAS network deployments and building a costing model that is dynamic enough to estimate a variety of new installations. In doing so, I have rounded out my technical knowledge of what makes an EHAS communications network. Broadly speaking we are talking towers, power and antennas. (For the record, I wish I knew a word for antenna that rhymed with power.)In addition to scoping out what a network in the mountains might cost compared to one in the jungle, we can now see where we should focus our effort on cost reductions or in-kind donations of equipment. Every dollar we save in network costs is a dollar closer we are to building a network where health posts have no access to communications.By understanding all the pieces, we also open up the possibility of extending the EHAS system to places where communications capability already exists. Why would someone need a communications network if they already have one? They don’t. But just because a hospital is within reach of a cell tower doesn’t mean they have electricity. In fact, one of the winners of the Healthy Mothers Strong World competition, WE CARE Solar, has developed an ingenious suitcase solar power system to specifically address the unmet need for power and they can’t fill orders fast enough.While EHAS is in the business of communications, the brilliant engineering team has developed a clever solar power system to make their antennas work. But, the electricity this system creates could also be used to power head lamps or incubators or whatever else a rural hospital might need – just like WE CARE Solar but on a larger scale to meet higher power demands. So by fully embracing our cost nerdiness, we now have a firm grasp on the economics of the power portion of the EHAS system and can judge if it might work strategically on a standalone basis. This has direct relevance to places with limited electrical networks, but high mobile phone coverage (i.e. Africa).Besides managing a $160 million budget and fully understanding costing, my former finance life also required me to think of creative ways to finance projects and transactions. So when Andres handed me a booklet on financing structures for social businesses and asked me to start working on a capital structure strategy to support EHAS growth, another part of my old self came out of hibernation.This month has required me to dust off lots of my old private sector skills. Funny thing is that applying these skills to extend healthcare to people in need is much more exciting than making anonymous shareholders richer.Share this:last_img read more

Tasmania’s High Performance Weekend a Success

first_imgAs part of Tasmania’s junior High Performance weekend, Australian coaches Tony Trad and Paul Sfier, Australian players Louise Winchester, Steve Roberts, Anthony Ziade and Nick Good, as well as National Referee Coach Chris Harapa, came to visit and share some of their skills and knowledge with the state coaches and players. Touch Football Tasmania State Coordinator, Maree Tomlin, said the weekend was a big success, and was a great learning experience for the Tasmanian teams.“It was awesome. The kids absolutely loved them. The big comment that our kids made was that they are ‘real’. I think they are so far removed from that level of the sport here and they see so little of it.”“The big comment with Louise was that the girls thought she was fabulous, they kept saying ‘she’s so cool and so real and so down to earth’,” Tomlin said. Tasmania’s Boys and Girls 12’s, 15’s and 18’s teams attended the camp, as well as some additional development players. And despite a lot of rain across the weekend, there was still plenty to learn.  Being indoors provided a great opportunity for the coaches to conduct video analysis sessions with the players and coaches. The group watched footage of touchdowns from previous National Touch League and Trans Tasman tournaments, with the players and coaches given the chance to ask questions about what they saw. The coaches opened up discussion by asking the players and coaches why the touchdown was scored, why the play broke down or what could the defence have done to have stopped the touchdown? This was a great chance for the players and coaches to think outside of the square and it complemented the work they had done earlier that weekend.  Tomlin said that having this high level of coaching was an invaluable opportunity for the sides.  “A lot of kids that we have at that level come from clubs where they don’t have a coach, they have someone’s parents coaching them. So even the kids that have been in the state teams for a few years and come up through different age groups, they used to say ‘I’ll come one day, but I have footy’ now they say ‘I’m not playing footy, I’ll spend the weekend at the camp’ so the kids are prioritising it because they get so much out of it.”“And the new kids that came along, we had quite a few new ones, it’s amazing how much they improve so quickly because we haven’t hosted our teams, we haven’t trained yet together. Some of the kids didn’t know each other when they got there and just the social side of that weekend, they all bonded really well and they’ve all started to make friends. Now when they go into individual state training sessions, they already know each other and all know each other’s names,” she said. There was also some theory and practical training for referees, an area that Touch Football Tasmania is experiencing major growth in at the moment. Currently in Devonport, there are so many referees that they can’t all get a game every week. They are now looking at taking some of their junior referees to the Launceston competition each week in order to give everyone a game to referee, as well as to continue their development.last_img read more
