O’Brien on verge of matching Kinane

first_imgJoseph O’Brien moved to within one of a long-standing record set by Mick Kinane for the number of winners in an Irish Flat season when partnering Buonarroti to an emphatic success at Tipperary. Kinane’s mark of 115 was set in 1993. The winning rider said: “I thought he would improve a lot from Galway. The lads that ride him at home said he had. He’s a nice staying prospect and was impressive.” Captain Cee Bee defied his advancing years to claim a second successive victory in the Friends of Tipperary Hurdle. Giving weight all round, the Eddie Harty-trained 12-year-old was settled in behind by Mark Walsh before making his move to the outer at the penultimate flight. He kicked away on the run to the final hurdle and the 15-8 favourite cleared the last in style to land Grade Two honours by five and a half lengths with Midnight Game in second. Harty said: “He’s something else and he’s a class horse. There’s not much more you can say about him. It might not have been the strongest Grade Two, but it wasn’t a bad race. For a horse of his age it’s brilliant. “We’ll take a deep breath now and see what’s coming up, but we won’t go to the well too often.” Rebel Fitz ran out an easy winner of the Like A Butterfly Novice Chase to notch his fifth win on the bounce. Win number 114 for O’Brien could be called some way from home, as the Aidan O’Brien-trained colt stretched readily clear in the Athassel House Stud EBF Maiden having been positively ridden from the off. The 7-4 favourite was following in the hoofprints of top-class stablemate Leading Light, who won this event 12 months ago. Sruthan recorded a minor surprise with victory in the Coolmore Stud Home of Champions Concorde Stakes. Much interest surrounded Irish 1,000 Guineas fourth Big Break, who was having just her third start of the campaign. All looked to be going well for the 4-5 favourite after collaring the front-running Most Improved two furlongs out, but she was soon joined on her outside by the Paul Deegan-trained Sruthan (11-2) under the in-form Chris Hayes. The latter edged into an advantage over a furlong out and kept on all the way to the line to hold Big Break by three-quarters of a length. King Of The Picts bagged a Grade Three prize in the Dolores Purcell Memorial Novice Hurdle. Tracking the pace set by Un Beau Roman who had opened up a sizeable early advantage, as the pack closed the Pat Shanahan-trained King Of The Picts (12-1) took a narrow advantage at the second-last. He still just had the edge at the last and cleared away from it well before holding the running-on joint-favourite Que Pasa by a length and a half. Shanahan said: “He loves jumping and he’s a real natural at it. He’s not a good work horse at home so we wanted to run him here to see how good he was. “He’ll go to the Cheltenham meeting in November.” A couple of swift jumps saw him well clear after the last and although Owega Star tried his best to reel in the winner, Geraghty was always cruising and scored a facile success aboard Michael Winters’ charge. Winters said: “Barry was delighted with him and he said he won easy enough. He said he switched off today. He’s one of the top horses over fences. There’s great opportunities and great prize money so we’ll tip away. Press Association A classy performer over hurdles, Rebel Fitz has made a seamless switch to the larger obstacles and was firmly in control as Barry Geraghty pushed him to the front two fences from home. Geraghty said: ” Some horses are just natural to chasing and he is one of them and time will tell how far he climbs, but he’s as good a novice as you would get.” “He’ll go to Cheltenham on Friday week for a two-and-a-half-mile novice chase. Last year we threw him out for three months in the winter, we won’t do that this year but he won’t be running on the bad ground.” last_img read more

Alpena woman celebrates 100th birthday

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThisALPENA, Mich. — Beulah Worniak turned 100 years old on Wednesday. Friends and family gathered at the MediLodge of Alpena to celebrate the occasion. She was born in Cheboygan and around her 2nd birthday she, along with her mother and sister, traveled by train to Alpena where her father was already living.Her daughter Jane Fortner says she is extremely proud of her mom making it to 100. “It’s quite the milestone to be 100. My mom is pretty amazing,” she said. “I think some of the stubbornness in her got her to be 100. So I’m very proud of her and love her very much.”While her real name is Beulah, the birthday cake instead read “Happy Birthday Boots!” which was a nickname given to her when she was just a child. Her father couldn’t always afford new shoes for them, so he bought them men’s boots in a couple sizes too large so they would last longer. Eventually she picked up the nickname and it’s stuck with her ever since.Her daughter Jane said she was such a supportive mother, and was always there for her. “I was the one that moved out of town and traveled and lived in various locations throughout the country,” she said. “Mom and dad were always there to help me move in and put things away, even when I was married. They always came and were always there and always supportive of everything that I ever did or wanted to do.” AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThis Tags: alpena, Medilodge of AlpenaContinue ReadingPrevious City of Alpena Fire Chief explains reason for flames at DPINext Entries being accepted for the Besser Museums “Winter Blues” exhibitlast_img read more

Liberia Commissions ‘Internet Exchange Point’

first_imgThe Liberian nation took one giant step Thursday, August 6, into its economic and development drive by the commissioning of the Liberia Internet Exchange Point (LIXP).An Internet exchange point (IX or IXP) is a physical infrastructure through which Internet service providers (ISPs) and content delivery networks (CDNs) exchange Internet traffic between autonomous systems or networks.In essence, the LIXP will ensure that internet traffic intended for local use is kept local and will also help to reduce the cost of communication and increase speed and other benefits to diverse users.Performing the commissioning of the LIXP Thursday, Vice President Joseph Nyumah Boakai stated that it is an investment in one of the very critical IT infrastructures that helps to keep local internet traffic local and also improve network performance.According to VP Boakai, a few years ago, the concept of IXP was largely restricted to Western countries and the industrialized world. “It’s my understanding that Alexandria in Egypt, Johannesburg in South Africa and Nairobi in Kenya were among the few other places that had IXPs in Africa.”The Liberian VP further stated that the assumption behind the establishment of IXP is to contribute to commerce and trade and to also contribute to raising the living standard of people across the continent.“Therefore, as policymakers, we believe that establishing IXP in Liberia will enable service providers to take advantage of the enormous opportunity IXP provides in creating demand for the local internet users in Liberia,” the VP said.The VP disclosed that Liberia is among the first 10 African countries that have taken practical steps in establishing its IXP with support from the African Union; adding: “We feel obliged to establish this facility in Liberia because we have a duty to our citizens and other residents. That duty is to provide all diverse and potential users a state of the art technology that can enhance their businesses, professional and individual aspirations.”Acknowledging the internet as being central to communication in the 21st century, Ambassador Boakai stated, “It therefore becomes our obligation to prioritize the development of core infrastructure that will enhance its access at a more affordable rate.”Speaking earlier, Posts and Telecommunications Minister and Postmaster General, Dr. Frederick B. Norkeh, stated that because of the IXP technology, internet providers in Liberia will no longer pay transit cost for traffic generated from Liberia to carriers in Europe or in the United States.“It will also support content creation such as NGOs, academic institutions, corporate entities, government institutions and individual users will have access to domain they most need to provide more information about their service and work.”The Posts Master General, who praised the African Union (AU) for funding the LIXP, disclosed: “As for today, exchanging email and other internet services that even use ‘dot LR’ domain intended for local consumption is routed through ‪Europe‬, America or in other countries before terminating to the user in Liberia.”For his part the AU Representative at the occasion, Mr. Moctar Yedaly, told the audience that the AU was present because they are committed to Liberia. He added: “We are here because we believe that that ICT can change the destiny and future of Africa.”Mr. Yedaly disclosed that in 2010, the AU got to know that poor nations in Africa had spent more than 610 million United States Dollars to third parties, including nations in Europe and the US, just on transit fees. He commended the Liberian Government for the initiative.Also speaking, Mr. Daniel Brewer, representative of the LIXP Association, said the Internet is a ‘network of networks’, currently comprising some 45,000 discrete networks. Mr. Brewer further stated that every microsecond, end-users are accessing; exchanging and receiving emails from distant lands or few miles away, transiting video on demand, enabling social media and voice.“Behind all of these successful exchanges is a` network arch, a collection of commercial peering and transit agreements, put in place and signed by operators and service providers to bring this all together. In like manner, the way in which an IXP is managed can impact an entire region’s Internet economy.For her part, Madam Angelique Weeks, Chairperson of the Liberia Telecommunications Authority (LTA) thanked everyone, including all the services providers — Libtelco, Lonestar, Cellcom and Novafone — for working to together to reach this point.She said discussions leading up yesterday’s commissioning ceremony had started in October, 2013.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img
