Sydney Uniare Australian handball champions

← Previous Story Tatran Presov wins regular part of SEHA GAZPROM SSL Next Story → NICE HANDBALL STORY: Wisla fans with Hungarian flag for Veszprem… Sydney Uni HC has edged one step closer to qualifying for the IHF Super Globe, the club world championships in Qatar. The team of German coach Philipp Enders beat club St Kilda HC in the final of the Australian club championships 34:28. With this title, Sydney Uni qualifies for the Oceania Club Championships in June, where the continental representative for the IHF Super Globe will be determined.Over the last weekend Sydney Olympic park was host to the Australian Handball Club Championships, in which the four best club teams met to crown the national champion, but also determine Australia’s representative at the Oceania Club Championsships which will be held in New Caledonia in June. As the defending Oceania club champions, Sydney Uni certainly started as favourites into the tournament – not least because of the international experience the club has gained over the last two years.Coach Philipp Ender’s team absolutely fulfilled expectations in the group phase of the tournament – having unmatched depth to its squad and playing fast, direct handball. All three opponents were beaten relatively clearly – St Kilda 30:22, Hills HC was only able to keep up for one half before going down 32:21, and Logan Wizards were disposed of 30:16. There was no indication that Sydney Uni would be seriously challenged when meeting St Kilda again in the final. But the reality was very different.The team from Melbourne had done their homework and offered much more resistance than in the earlier encounter, drawing from the tactical maturity of their experienced players. Lead by former National team player VeliborVujaklija and Serbian BratislavStankovic, a formerly player of Nis, Bologna and Partizan Belgrade in the ECL, they played very cleverly and to their strengths. With an aggressive defence on Sydney Uni’s left they successfully stopped the flow in Enders’ team, and forced Sydney Uni into unprepared shots. Sydney was somewhat unlucky with several hits to the post too – and whatever was on target was taken care of by former Sydney Uni goalkeeper Thomas Gerstch. The result was a 5 goal deficit just before half time – not what anyone had anticipated.The boys in blue and gold picked themselves up in the second half though, putting their game plan to practice – hard defence, good rotation and flow in attack, plus fast starts. 15 minutes from the end, Sydney Uni had overcome the deficit and one could sense that St Kilda was strugglingto keep up with the pace and intensity. Just as the game was about to tip though, Sydney Uni missed their ‘big points’ again – which left the game in open right up to the wire. Sydney Uni was eventually even lucky to save a draw into overtime when St Kilda missed a fast break just 15 seconds from the end.Sydney Uni’s superiority in terms of fitness, pace and agility finally came to fruition in overtime, during which Enders’ boys created a margin of six goals and were finally able to celebrate their title.Coach Philipp Enders stated after the final: “All in all we were certainly the best team of the tournament, but boy the final was hard work. After being unlucky with many of our shots, fate was on our side in the dying seconds of regular time.” He asked to consider the youth of his team though, saying that “Llorente, Aubard, Gavidia, Matic, Lennstrom und Szklarski are all just 21 to 24 years old – they have certainly learned a lot today!” He attributed the victory to the fantastic team spirit, adding with a smile: “If your team consists of such a diversity of players – Australians, French, Spanish, Germans, Poles, Swedish, Iranians and Argentinians – you can’t necessarily expect that they get themselves out of such a pickle. But we have a really good bunch of guys here, and they dig deep for oneanother.”As a result, Enders is quite confident for the Oceania Club Championships in New Caledonia in June, where Sydney Uni will be contesting the continental ticket for the IHF Super Globe. “We have good depth in our squad, particularly since there’s 2 or 3 more signings we’ll be announcing in the coming weeks. The only question mark is our right back, where we’re still looking for a strong left handed shooter.”Additionally, the club wants to step up its marketing in order to create an even more professional environment for handball in Sydney. “We’re getting so much attention now in Europe and the Middle East” he says, “we’re really hoping we can get a sponsor on board who’d like to benefit from the broad media exposure internationally – and who’s keen to be part of our exciting endeavour.”Sydney Uni can be contacted via info@sydneyunihandball.com australia handballsydney handball read more

CLUB NOT GIVEN LICENCE Veselin Vujovic wont be coaching Qatar Foundation

One of the best handball players of all times, Veselin Vujovic, won’t be working in Qatar in the upcoming season, as was previously reported. The reason is that the newly formed club “Qatar Foundation” did not get licence for the upcoming season, thus not competing at all, leaving Vujovic without job for the moment. He worked last season in UAE and won the Macedonian league in 2012/2013 with HC Vardar. handballqatar foundationrakometrukometVeselin Vujović ← Previous Story Kadetten Schaffhausen with test win over Japan Next Story → BREAKING: Niklas Landin to THW Kiel!

Gardaí hunt for two men who fled the scene of Tallaght killing

first_imgUpdated at 7.45pmGARDAÍ ARE HUNTING for two men seen escaping the scene of a suspected gangland-related killing near Tallaght, south Dublin last night.A critically injured man in his early 40s was discovered off the Foxhill Road, Bohernabreena at aound 10.45pm last night after detectives from Tallaght Garda Station came upon the scene while on routine patrol.The officers had initially stopped to investigate a car parked suspiciously on the road, but as they arrived alongside it, two men jumped into the vehicle and sped away, Garda spokesman Superintendent Dave Taylor told reporters this afternoon.“It was a narrow road and wasn’t possible for detectives to follow,” Taylor said. “They did carry out an extensive search of the area but the car has not been located to date”.Upon returning to the original scene, the detectives came upon a man with “obvious wounds to the upper body”. He died from his injuries a short time later.The area was immediately sealed off pending forensic tests, and Deputy State Pathologist Dr Micheal Curtis carried out a preliminary examination of the scene this afternoon.The man’s body has since been removed to Tallaght Hospital, where a post-mortem examination is scheduled to take place tomorrow.Taylor said that gardaí weren’t released the man’s name as yet, but that a liaison officer had been appointed to his family.He issued an appeal to anyone who may have seen the car in question in the Bohernabreena area or further afield last night or earlier today, and said the vehicle was “silver in colour, a hatchback possibly”.“If anyone has seen this car, possibly parked up or abandoned suspiciously, we’re asking you to come forward and contact Tallaght Garda Station.” Taylor said.“We’re also appealing to anyone who might have seen individuals acting suspiciously in the Foxhill Road area.” A number of people have already contacted investigating officers to give information, Taylor said.

Irish Government will not be targeting bank deposits like Cyprus

first_imgTHE IRISH GOVERNMENT will not be targeting bank deposits like Cyprus, Minister for Agriculture Simon Coveney told the Dáil today.He made the comment during Leaders’ Questions, when questioned on the issue by Fianna Fáil finance spokesperson Michael McGrath.Last night, Cyprus MPs rejected a proposed €10 billion bailout deal in parliament, which would have meant a levy on bank deposits.Deputy McGrath said that the message that people will have received from the developments of the last few days “is that bank deposits are no longer sacrosanct in the eurozone”.He also said it was difficult to believe that given Ireland’s repeated insistence that corporate tax is a matter for each member state, that this Government would agree to a condition in the Cypriot bailout for that country to increase its corporate tax rate.“Can you give an absolute assurance to the Irish people that there are absolutely no circumstances… that our citizens will have their private savings targeted in the way Cypriot [people have]?” McGrath asked.Coveney said that “there is absolutely no evidence to suggest that what is happening currently in Cyprus is having any impact” in Ireland on financial markets, or on bank deposits here.He continued: Let me give an absolute guarantee on behalf of the government that under no circumstances will this government look to introduce a Cypriot-style levy on deposits in terms of raising money.He said he has spoken to the Finance Minister Michael Noonan about this, and that it is clear “from a government point of view that we will not be targeting bank deposits for any purpose as a government”.Sinn Féin finance spokesperson Pearse Doherty said that Cyprus had “sent out a very clear signal that they wouldn’t be pushed around” but that “the Irish government shouldn’t have signed up to this blackmail”.Read: Brussels: ‘It’s up to Cyprus to come up with a revised bailout deal’>last_img read more

SMEs call for Budget 2015 to focus on competitiveness

first_imgThis budget must focus on the transition from austerity to growth for businesses who have survived the recession and are now ready to capitalize on the recovery. It is essential that Government understands that Ireland will only be able to revitalise its economy by creating new jobs in the private sector, 99% if which are SMEs. THE GOVERNMENT MUST “encourage, incentivise and reward” small businesses in the upcoming budget, ISME (the Irish Small and Medium Enterprises Association) said today.In its pre-budget submission, ISME called on the coalition to refocus on competitiveness, as well as support Ireland’s reputation for flexibility, by taking measures such as retaining the 12.5% corporate tax rate.In a statement this afternoon, ISME Chief Executive Mark Fielding laid out the group’s vision for October’s budget.center_img ISME listed several specific policy proposals, including the following:Reduce the marginal rate of tax to 40%Allow an opt-in for the self-employed for PRSI benefitsExtend the start-up company relief scheme beyond 2014Cut the employers’ PRSI rate from 8.5% to 4.25% for three yearsThe group also called on Finance Minister Michael Noonan to keep Ireland’s 12.5% corporation tax rate for companies trading in Ireland, in order to reaffirm that we have a “stable and transparent corporation taxation regime.”ISME also warned that in “getting the balance right”, the government should avoid imposing additional axes, and be sure not to “jeopardise the recovery by continuing to fritter away savings on public expenditure excess.”Scroll down to read ISME’s pre-budget submission in full.Read: Top tips on winning public contracts if you are an SME>Are you using WordPress for your SME?>http://isme.ie/assets/14206-Pre-Budget-Submission-2015-mark1.pdf?utm_source=Copy+of+Tax+on+Travel+Expenses+-+ISME+Press+Statement+&utm_campaign=Inflation&utm_medium=emaillast_img read more

Sprint preorder for HTC 7 Pro begins Dec 8th with a catch

first_imgMS_Nerd is known for leaking information around Microsoft products and services through tweets. This latest one has to be taken with a grain of salt, though:Exclusive (?) #WP7 #tip : Sprint HTC 7 Pro preorders start December 8, 2010. You may now commence guessing at the launch date. Verizon ???AdChoices广告WPCentral reported on the tweet and backed it up by saying they had heard rumors the phone was coming soon. They also believe the rumor makes sense because the date occurs 30 days after AT&T and T-Mobile begin selling their stock. BGR went a bit further and confirmed the rumor with Sprint. There is a bit of a catch, though. You have to be a Microsoft employee to participate in the pre-order.As it pertains to a Verizon Wireless HTC 7 Pro, BGR went on to report that HTC has already stated that a CDMA version of the phone won’t be available before 2011. So, if you want to take a guess at a launch date for the Verizon version of the phone it sounds like you’d be a bit closer if your guess is sometime next year.Read more at MS_nerd’s Twitter page, WPCentral and BGRlast_img read more

AMD reduces C50 netbook APU to 5W bringing it to tablets

first_imgAMD never had much luck competing with Intel in the netbook space. They just never seemed to gain any traction with a CPU worthy of competing with Atom. AMD’s not about to make the same mistakes now that tablets are de rigeur, though: they are now showing off a low power 5W version of their C-50 APU, a chip that was previously meant for netbooks.The C-50 is a fairly standard dual core chip running at 1GHz. It’s meant for netbooks with larger battery packs, since it has a 9W TDP… slightly above the 8.5W TDP of a dual core Atom N550 and the 6.5W TDP of the single-core Atom N450.The problem? Netbooks are basically a dead form, but 9W is just too much power draw for a tablet, since that form factor needs to rely upon slimmer battery packs. However, by cutting back on features — simplifying the number of supported ports, skimping on support for larger memory and clock speeds — AMD has managed to reduce that power consumption to something appropriate for tablets: 5W.Not bad. The problem is this is only relevant for tablets running Windows 7… and Windows 7 based tablets are just the pits. Consequently, the only real competitive tablets these days are running ARM chipsets to support Android. Unless Microsoft can get their act together and deliver a radical overhaul of Windows 7 meant exclusively for tablets, this is a lot of hard work on AMD’s part for nothing.Read more at Netbook Newslast_img read more

Replica of Delorean Time Machine for sale

first_imgGrowing up I remember seeing the movie Back To The Future and being mesmerized by the thought of driving a Delorean capable of time travel. It seems I wasn’t the only one fascinated with that notion. Robert “Videobob” Moseley was as well. Moseley, who got his nickname by producing music videos, television shows and commercials, bought his first Delorean in 2003. Back in 2004, he began converting one of them into a replica of the Delorean Time Machine featured in Back To The Future. To date, he has built six of the time machines. Videobob went to great lengths to maintain the screen accuracy of his replica cars going as far as consulting with the film’s special effects supervisor, Kevin Pike, whose shop, Filmtrix, built the original time machines for the film back in 1985. Not only did Videobob actually stay at Pike’s home, he also visited the places the original parts for the cars were bought and was surprised to discover that some of the parts were still available.Over the years, these Delorean Time Machine replicas have gone for some serious money. In December 2009, a replica was sold on eBay for $89,00 to Seth McFarlane, creator of Family Guy, for $89,000. After buying the car, he put another $20,000 into it for additions and repairs. In November 2010, another replica was sold at the Profiles In History auction in Hollywood for $95,000. Now, Videobob is giving people another chance to drive their very own Delorean Time Machine at 88 miles per hour.Gallery 66, the auction based in Atlanta, Georgia and featured on the Discovery Channel show Auction Kings, will be auctioning off a replica on Sunday, April 10, 2011. The car will be available for preview in Dallas, Texas before the auction and on Friday, Saturday and the day of the auction at Gallery 66. If for some reason you can’t make it to Atlanta on the day of the auction, Gallery 66 also provides proxy bidding per their website.Read more at the Time Machine For Sale website and Gallery 66.last_img read more

95 Kinstone Android tablet can handle HD video 3D gaming

first_imgApple is well-known for producing highly desirable devices that you can pay a lot of money for. Just look at the entire range of MacBook products and you can see each one comes with a hefty price premium when compared to the equivalent hardware in a non-Apple device.There is an exception to that rule, though. Currently Apple has the most popular tablet on the market, but it’s also one of the cheapest. An iPad 2 can be picked up for as little as $499, while you can pay significantly more for an Android tablet from one its major competitors like Samsung.AdChoices广告However, at the other end of the sales spectrum there are a growing number of tablets that manage to break the sub-$500 price point. Until now they have been pretty poor performers, or opted for an inferior resistive touchscreen solution. But a new effort reviewed by YouTube user Charbax, and offered by manufacturer Kinstone, looks like it may have caught up and offers a usable Android tablet for just $95.When we say usable we have a few criteria such as fast boot time, display technology, HD video playback, and games-capabilities to judge it by. Kinstone looks to have ticked all those boxes with its KS-UMD070VC tablet.As the video above shows, the 7-inch device is capable of playing back HD video, 3D games, and has a fast boot time into Android. It does fall down on the screen as it is resistive, but then a capacitive version is only $30 more, so it still remains well below $150.The full spec includes:Cortex-A9 single-core @ 800MhzARM Mali-400 GPUAndroid 2.2.1 (3.0 possible if Google allows it)512MB RAM4GB on-board storage7″ touchscreen (resistive and capacitive options (+$30))1800mAh batteryUSB 2.0, HDMIFlash 10.1 supportEven though it is a single-core chip, the core functions of a tablet (HD video, games, web surfing) seem to be catered for, and even though it’s not stated, using such a processor is sure to aid with battery life.While the focus at the moment may be on which of the big name manufacturers can deliver an iPad-killer, it is possible that some very capable, cheap Android tablets may arrive and surprise everyone by eating into Apple’s market share.Seriously, who is going to turn down a HD-capable, WiFi Android 2.2 tablet with capacitive touchscreen for $125? That’s a bulk price, but even with taxes, shipping, and packaging expenses applied it’s still going to come in at well under $200.Anyone thinking this is just a one-off we will never see should check out Charbax’s latest video below. It’s another $100 tablet, only this time from Thinkbook running Froyo and shipping with a capacitive touchscreen.via ARMdevices.netlast_img read more

Unique display created from 44000 electromagnetic spinning dots

first_imgIf you happen to be in New York this month then it’s well worth a trip to Manhattan’s Herald Square at 885 6th Ave and 32nd Street. There you will find a rather unique display that consists of technology you’d typically expect to find in a train station.TNT have got a new crime show coming out called Perception where the lead character can see hidden messages that help him solve cases. In order to promote the show they turned to Breakfast, known as “custom tailors of the tech world” to come up with a novel, interactive advertisement for it. The end result is nothing less than spectacular.Breakfast took the ageing flip disc displays you find in train stations or on the front of buses and brought it bang up to date. They did this by increasing the rate at which they can flip between a black and white display element by 15x. They also increased the size of the display to 23 x 12 feet, meaning it consists of 44,000 independently controlled dots that act like pixels.That alone was enough to produce a very impressive, if noisy new display, but they didn’t stop there. Cameras track anyone standing in front of the display and project them on to it in real-time. Their movements help clear the board of characters to reveal hidden messages linked to Perception.Everything about this display is custom built, and it takes a small army of people to ship and install it at a location. But after watching the three videos we’ve included here I think it was well worth the effort and time it took to create.Read more at Breakfast, via Engadgetlast_img read more

Apple products accidentally show up on Staplescom

first_imgIt looks like Staples is on the path to becoming an authorized Apple reseller. Somehow, someone managed to come across a hidden product page at Staples.com for numerous Apple products, including the Apple TV. The price was listed at $49.99, half off the normal price. However, it was impossible to add it to your shopping cart as the product was listed as out of stock.Also, the official name of the product on the site was “Apple TV, Test.” The other items, like iPad Smart Covers, also contained the word “Test.” So apparently these page were not meant to be live yet. At least, they were not meant to be seen by the general public. As such, the pages have been taken down, but it’s a little too late now, since screenshots of the product pages have been widely circulated.Although Staples is a massive retailer for computers, electronics, and various computing accessories, it has never stocked Apple products. It does have a significant selection of iPhone and iPad accessories, but only those that are made by third-party manufacturers.Obviously, Apple has made no announcement about bringing Staples into its retail family, so right now everything is just speculation. But it seems highly unlikely that someone behind-the-scenes at Staples’s corporate headquarters would create a product page for Apple products unless the company was planning on selling them.Staples has been trying to get Apple products on its shelves for years, but the Cupertino company clearly hasn’t been too enthusiastic about that prospect. However, Apple’s investors are worried about how popular its products will be in the future, so it needs to start coming up with some new strategies. It could very well be that an extended retail presence will be part of that.via MacRumorslast_img read more
