What has happened is that we have sent him on leave because of the concern over his security. There was trouble in the Sofapaka match and Tusker as well on Wednesday and as a club we are concerned about him. If anything happens to him, we will be in so much trouble,” Lilumbi said.He added; “An employer can always grant an employee leave and that is what has happened. He will return to the club during pre-season for the 2019 campaign.”However, Secretary General Oscar Igaida gave a contrasting statement, saying the coach was headed to the United States on personal business, further putting into doubt whether or not the tactician will still be in charge of the team.AFC Leopards head coach Radolfo Zapata passes instructions to his players at half time during their Hull City Challenge match against Gor Mahia at the Afraha Stadium in Nakuru on May 1, 2018.

The coach has been granted leave to travel to the US for some personal business and he will be back before the new season. We have not sacked him,” Igaida said in a response to Capital Sport.Efforts to reach the Argentine coach who joined Leopards in mid-season from Botswana side Gaborone United were fruitless as his phone went unanswered.Zapata took over from Dennis Kitambi who had been handed the role following the sacking of Robert Matano early in the season.On whether Zapata will still be in charge of the team in the new season, Lilumbi said; “I cannot say conclusively anything as at now. That will still pend on any recommendations the Executive Committee will have.”Zapata on Wednesday told Capital Sport that he was not ready to quit the club but added that he would only do so if the club’s top hierarchy would seem it fit for him to leave.AFC Leopards head coach Rudolf Zapata. Photo/RAYMOND MAKHAYA“I will have a meeting with the Executive Committee to analyze the season and see what we need to do in the team and what’s better for us. If they think the coach is the problem then, it’s okay, I will go, but I think the problem is much deeper,” the tactician said.AFC’s 1-0 loss at the hands of Sofapaka in the Shield semis increased pressure on the tactician and Wednesday’s 4-0 drubbing at the hands of Tusker FC increased the calls for the tactician to call it quits or the club to fire him.A section of fans who had attended the Wednesday afternoon tie in Machakos publicly told the coach on his face to quit the club with a section of the club’s backroom staff coincidentally joining the call.AFC has been a notorious club known to hire and fore coaches at will and if Zapata’s term comes to an end, it will only be a chapter of the already best-selling book at AFC, anchored in firing of their tacticians.Though regarded as one of the biggest clubs in the country, the club has not won the Kenyan Premier League title in the last 20 years and continuously remain in the shadow of arch rivals Gor Mahia who just this season picked their 17th KPL diadem.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

More Zika for Grand Turk

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppGrand Turk, TCI, January 9, 2017 –  Grand Turk sees cases of Zika virus surge as the Ministry of Health gives an update on recorded cases of the mosquito borne, sexually transmitted disease.Just days into the New Year, the public learned that there are eight new cases of Zika for the TCI, bringing the national total of on record cases to 24.   Seven of those eight cases were found in Grand Turk; the Capital and the island which hosts major cruise liners and thousands of tourists per day.  It is believed the rainy season is responsible in part for the new cases from October 14 through December 7, 2016.The ‘tip of the iceberg effect’ must be ever mindful, as Zika has the uniqueness of being asymptomatic, meaning some people do not even know that they have it, therefore the true number of cases will likely never be known in any society.Go to MagneticMediaTV.com for the tips and advice from the Ministry of Health on how to be Zika free.

Navy Close to Deal to Develop Solar Array at NAS Jacksonville

first_imgThe Navy expects to complete a deal shortly with a utility to build a solar farm on 50 acres at Naval Air Station Jacksonville, Fla. The project is estimated to generate 5 megawatts of electricity that would be delivered to the commercial grid, reported WOKV. An environmental assessment determined the project would not have a significant impact.“The solar project would benefit both the local community and the Navy, bringing renewable energy to the area and energy security with it being on Navy property,” Sue Brink, a spokeswoman for Naval Facilities Engineering Command Southeast, told the radio station.The secretary of the Navy set a goal for the service’s shore-based operations to acquire one-half of their electricity needs from renewable sources by 2020. After surpassing the secretary’s goal of bringing one gigawatt of renewable energy into procurement by the end of 2015, the Navy now is exploring the latest advances such as battery storage, electrification, fuel cells and microgrids to further enhance its energy security, operational capability, strategic flexibility and resource availability.

Triumph and Williams are teaming up on future electric motorcycles

first_imgEnlarge ImageIf Triumph has its way, in a few years it will be able to sell you electric versions of your favorite Triumph models. Triumph Electric motorcycles are becoming increasingly “a thing” and you know that’s the case when legacy brands like Harley-Davidson are getting in on it. Now, though, a new player is entering the game, and it’s Triumph.Yeah, that Triumph that makes scramblers and Bonnevilles and Rockets and Tigers. It announced on Wednesday that it was initiating a program that it’s calling “TE-1,” which will focus on the development of compact battery-electric drivetrain options for future motorcycle models.Here’s the part that will turn your brain into a hot little coal: Triumph is teaming up with Williams to get this project going. Yes, that Williams. The famed Formula One engineering firm, the same company that helped Singer get its Dynamics and Lightweighting Study cars off the ground.”This new collaboration represents an exciting opportunity for Triumph and its partners to be leaders in the technology that will enable the electrification of motorcycles,” said Triumph CEO Nick Bloor in a statement. “Project Triumph TE-1 is one part of our electric motorcycle strategy, focused on delivering what riders want and expect from their Triumph, which is the perfect balance of handling, performance and usability.”Based on Bloor’s statement, we’d expect that Triumph’s path toward electrification will differ significantly from, say, Harley-Davidson’s. Where H-D is offering one electric motorcycle — the Livewire — with a stratospheric price tag and then plans to offer two other models that are more akin to scooters or electric bicycles than they are motorcycles, Triumph will offer no-compromise electric versions of its ICE models.”The team at Williams Advanced Engineering is looking forward to applying our expertise in the electrification of transport with our partners,” said Craig Wilson, managing director of Williams Advanced Engineering, in a statement.  “Williams has powered a number of world-renowned electric vehicles already and this will be a significant further step in our work by taking that knowledge onto two wheels.”Now, historically, when a company like Triumph would announce something as grand as Project Triumph TE-1, we’d have viewed it with a great deal of skepticism. Triumph, in particular, has had a checkered financial past, and developing new tech is expensive. Now, though, Triumph is at the top of its game, and its models are among the best in the industry. We’re genuinely excited to see how this turns out. 2020 BMW 330e first drive: A plug-in 3 Series without compromise Motorcycles Electric Cars Tags 2020 Harley-Davidson LiveWire first ride: Harley’s electric future is bright Share your voice Harley-Davidson’s LiveWire is the sporty electric streetbike we need Post a comment Triumph 47 Photos More From Roadshow 2020 Volvo XC60 T8 Polestar Engineered first drive: Almost Super Trouper 0last_img read more
