Nelson Figure Skating Club enters nation-wide competition

first_imgSubmittedAnyone who has been a world champion figure skater would have a wealth of knowledge to share with up and comers.That’s exactly what members of the Nelson Figure Skating Club are counting on.The club has entered a nation-wide Skate Canada competition and the top prize is a one-day skate seminar given by Canadian skating icon Kurt Browning.“We would love to see Kurt come to Nelson and work with our skaters,” says NFSC Publicity Chair Murray Kimber. “It would be an opportunity of a lifetime.” Second prize is to have a national team athlete skate at a club’s year end ice show in February, 2011.The essence of the contest is this: Skate Canada asked member clubs to use photos and video to demonstrate how they have showcased the new Skate Canada logo, which launched in June 2010, and submit the entries for judging.The Nelson club produced a short film compiling skating performances from shows it gave at the Civic Arena 75th Anniversary celebration that incorporates the six different logos Skate Canada has used since its inception in 1948.Although the major prizes are awarded by jury, Nelsonites can help the club win the “Fan Favorite” prize, a Sony HD TV and video camera, by voting for the club’s entry online.“Anyone can go to the Skate Canada gallery and vote for the club of their choice,” adds Kimber. “That prize will be awarded to the club that receives the most votes, so we are asking people to vote daily.”A video system would be a valuable teaching tool as it would allow the coaches to film and analyze a skater’s performance.The Nelson Figure Skating Club invites everyone to help it become the “Fan Favorite”.Voting is open now and runs until the end of December.Visit nelsonfigureskatingclub.ca to view the film and to find out how to vote.last_img read more

Ali delivers crushing KO victory

first_img5 February 2007The first professional boxing match between women in South Africa, featuring Laila Ali, daughter of Muhammad Ali, against Gwendolyn O’Neil, was over almost before it began.Just 56 seconds into the first round at Johannesburg’s Emperor’s Palace, Ali had successfully defended her WBC and WIBA super-middleweight titles, improving her record to 24 wins, with 20 of them coming by way of knockout.Previously Ali had beaten O’Neill on a third-round knockout. “I was out to make it quicker than the last time,” she said, “but I did not expect it to be this quick.”Time for the fansGiven that the bout took such a little time, and given that Ali had to endure next to no blows, she spent time after the fight signing autographs and posing with fans.Looking back on her outing, she said she had been momentarily blinded after a jab from O’Neill, but that was the sum total of her discomfort.All it took for Ali to win were two stiff right hands. The first one dropped O’Neill, who then took a mandatory standing eight-count. She was clearly in trouble, however, and a second right felled her once more. Despite making it back to her feet, she was wobbly, and the referee counted her out.CelebritiesThe crowd that had come to see the contest included plenty of celebrities, led by former President Nelson Mandela, a noted boxing fan. Also at the bout were Winnie Madikezla-Mandela, ministers Ngconde Balfour and Makhenkesi Stofile, business magnate Tokyo Sexwale, boxers Brian Mitchell, Dingaan Thobela and Corrie Sanders, cricketer Makhaya Ntini and singer Yvonne Chaka-Chaka.At least in the main support fight they got to see more action as Cassius Baloyi won his fifth world title when he stopped Argentina’s Naszreno Ruiz in the third round of their IBO junior-lightweight contest.After knocking Ruiz to the canvas twice, Baloyi ended it early in round three with a right hook to the chin. It was the first time that Ruiz had been stopped in his 35-fight career.The victory improved Baloyi’s record to 33 wins and three defeats, with 18 of those wins coming by knockout.Supporting fightsIn another supporting bout, Kgotso Motau retained the SA middleweight title with a knockout victory in the opening round of his outing against Xolani Ngemtu. It was his tenth KO in 10 fights.Warren Joubert also scored a first-round victory, dispatching Mishack Khoza in their junior-lightweight contest, while Peter Mashamaite held on to his IBO Intercontinental title when veteran Mpush Makambi retired in the fifth round of their fight.Former Olympic boxer Ludumo Galada won the vacant SA featherweight title with a unanimous points win over Sydney Maluleka, improving his record to 11-0 in the process.

The Real Proof Provider

first_img Essential Reading! Get my 3rd book: Eat Their Lunch “The first ever playbook for B2B salespeople on how to win clients and customers who are already being serviced by your competition.” Buy Now Case studies. ROI analysis. Client testimonials. A slick full of logos. Third party validation. References. Awards. Years in business. Number of locations. Global footprint. Press releases.Any and all of these can be useful proof providers. But it depends on what you are trying to prove.Some people build presentations around proving that they are a good, solid, stable company, the kind you’d want to do business with. More believe they need proof to even be able to command a conversation with their dream client. They mistakenly believe that this “proof” is what will give their prospective client the confidence to move forward with them. But the kind of proof listed above is most effective at the end of the sales process (or buying process) to resolve concerns.The real proof you need to provide early is that you have the ability to create value for your client. You. Personally. Not your company.You need to pass the first test of being known and differentiating yourself from all of the salespeople who call each quarter only to disappear and be replaced by the next quarterly check in call. You need to prove you want the business and that you aren’t going anywhere.You need to pass the test of relevance. Do you have something worth talking about? Do you know something that will help move your dream client’s business forward? Do you have good ideas? You need to prove you have the chops, the business acumen and situational knowledge to stand toe-to-toe as a peer.You have to prove you know how to get from the current state to the better future you are going to help your dream client achieve. This is the test of control. If you don’t know what commitments you need, explain why you need them, and ask for those commitments, you will fail this test. You should spend less time worrying about proof that your company can produce results and more time working on building the capacity to produce them yourself. The real reason it’s difficult to buy from some companies is that it is difficult to buy from their salespeople.QuestionsHow much proof do you need to provide in the early stages of your process?What is the best form of proof you can offer and why?What proof works better in later stages to resolve concerns?Why does trying to prove your value early subtract from your credibility?last_img read more

In the Womens 30’s, the Mens 40’s and Mens 50’s NSW once again controlled the match, taking all three of those series’ to an unbeatable 2-1 lead. However, the Queenslanders were not about to let that trend continue. The Queensland Womens 20’s fought back from yesterday’s 3-2 loss, keeping their series alive with another 3-2 scoreline. This time though, it was Queensland who left the field cheering, winning in an exciting drop-off. The Womens 35’s also recorded a win to keep their series alive, Kay Lenitschek scoring twice to help them to a 3-1 victory. The Queensland Mens 30’s scored what many considered to be an upset, beating NSW 4-3 and taking their series to a deciding match. It was in the Mens 20’s that Queensland broke the NSW winning trend, taking an unbeatable series lead, with a 6-5 win. The young men provided 11 individual scorers in that match, highlighting the depth of talent in Australia’s youth. The Mens 45’s also provided excitement for the crowd, a win in the drop-off giving them the series win for their division. NSW’s Mens 35’s cruised to an unbeatable lead in their series, after three touchdowns by David McDonald gave them a comfortable 7-3 win. STATE OF ORIGIN SUMMARY: Their 2003 title defense and the 2004 title was on the line for the Queensland Mens and Womens Open sides in round two. The Queensland Women, were unfortunately, outclassed by the Blues from beginning to end. The 9-1 whitewash an excellent result for the NSW but slightly more than disappointing for the Queenslanders. Melissa Pitfield scored twice for NSW, but it was the depth of Australian representatives such as Bo De La Cruz, Rachael Holden, Kirsty Jenkins and the Judd sisters, that gave NSW the win. The Mens round two match promised excitement after the close match last night. Queensland took an early lead 2-0 before Joel Willoughby brought one back for the Blue. Desperate touches and great fingertip control provided great touch for the 2000 people that packed out the grandstand and surrounds of the Canterbury Velodrome. Jason Stanton was virtually unstoppable for NSW, assisting as well as scoring himself. When NSW scored again for a 7-4 lead it looked as though Queensland were out of chances. The sin-binning of Jamie Stowe and the following penalty touchdown brought the Queenslanders hope and after scoring again, the score was back to 7-6. While Queensland looked in with a shot at stealing the match and bringing the series to a deciding third match, they ran out of time. With one match in both the Mens and Womens still to play, NSW have claimed the 2004 State of Origin title. A well deserved win. By Rachel Moyle, [email protected]last_img read more

Cheryl FernandezVersini To Fund New Princes Trust Centre

first_imgCheryl Fernandez-Versini has teamed up with The Prince’s Trust to help establish a new state-of-the-art centre in the heart of Newcastle to support thousands of disadvantaged young people from across the region.She has committed to raise £2million to help get the centre up and running, through her own charitable foundation, Cheryl’s Trust. The pop star is planning a host of exciting fundraising activities across the region over the coming months.The Centre, which will allow the Prince’s Trust to support almost 4,000 young people in the North East each year, will help the region’s most at-risk young people, including those facing drug and alcohol abuse, homelessness, mental health problems and those leaving care, to turn their lives around.Cheryl, who officially launched her campaign at the charity’s current centre in the west end of the city, met with some of the young people who have already worked with The Prince’s Trust to find out how the charity’s support has helped them.Cheryl said: “I’m proud of where I grew up but I’m only too aware of the challenges that young people faced. Opportunities often seem pretty limited and I saw so many friends who had loads of potential fall into a life of alcohol, drugs and crime. Sadly, many got in too deep, and never found their way back to a happy life.“It’s really scary to see that this is still happening in so many communities across the UK. Too many young people are wasting their lives away because they feel they have no-one to turn to.“My life could have turned out very differently if I didn’t have the support of my family who believed in me and told me I could achieve anything. A little bit of self-belief can go a long way. I know how lucky I am.“The young people The Prince’s Trust works with, day in day out, are those who are unemployed, have no qualifications and sometimes even suffer with mental health issues and drug and alcohol addiction. They are often already resigned to the belief they will fail in life.“That’s why I am raising money to open the new Centre here in Newcastle. I want to give back and help young people who feel like they’ll never achieve anything reach their dreams and live a happy life.”The new centre will enable The Prince’s Trust to provide enhanced support to vulnerable young people on a range of its programmes. The partnership will also see the opening of a new music studio and a state-of-the-art digital media hub within the centre, where young people will be able to gain confidence and skills in music and media.Martina Milburn CBE, Chief Executive of The Prince’s Trust, said: “I am truly inspired by Cheryl’s passion and determination to help young people who are the most disengaged from society – especially those who are battling drug and alcohol addiction. We know that Cheryl is genuinely passionate about this cause, and over the years she’s met a number of the young people we support at The Prince’s Trust.“As a charity, The Prince’s Trust relies on generous support from individuals and organisations. The Centre will change thousands of lives each year and I’d like to thank Cheryl for her generosity.”Source:Prince’s Trustlast_img read more
