He travelled throughout Jamaica doing demonstrations in the sport to raise funds for the YMCA and the less fortunate children at the institution.As he excelled in the sport, James was selected as a member of the several teams representing Jamaica abroad in various tournaments.

There, along with his training, he was also teaching new students the art of Seido Karate. It was during that time that he was introduced to the World Martial Arts Hall of Fame by his fellow Karateka and close friend, ‘Shihan’ William Oliver, his senior and martial arts champion.As he travelled throughout the US, James continued participating in various karate championships, was also featured in trade publications, and did short stints in a number of television productions.In 1989, James relocated to Miami where he began his own training studio teaching police tactical self-defense, and wrestling.James will show off his martial arts skills on the big screen in the soon to be released movie ‘Rebel’.

Qualcomm must provide EU answers or face fine

first_img Tags Blog: How is chip shortage affecting US? Qualcomm is facing daily fines of €580,000 after failing to block a European Union (EU) order that requires the chip giant to provide internal information relating to an antitrust probe.The company, which is facing an investigation by the European Commission for using anti-competitive tactics to force rival chipset maker Icera, now owned by Nvidia, out of the market, will be hit with the penalty if it continues to resist demands for the information.Qualcomm failed in its attempt to block the request after the EU general court said the demand did not put the chip company’s business or financial health at risk.“The applicant does not claim that its financial viability would be at risk or that its market share could be affected substantially,” said EU general court president Marc Jaeger.Qualcomm had argued the EU’s demand required enormous work and significant financial costs, estimated at €3 million.The company could continue to fight the issue, but it must now comply and hand over the information.It failed to meet a deadline of 30 June to respond to queries, which are required in the final stages of the EU investigation into predatory chipset pricing.The EU ruling comes amid Qualcomm’s ongoing row with Apple, which has escalated into a bitter legal dispute.Most recently, Qualcomm asked the US International Trade Commission to block the sale of certain iPhones that allegedly infringe on patents.The daily penalty for failing to comply with the EU order will be a separate fine, even if regulators find Qualcomm guilty of using anti-competitive sales tactics. The company is accused of selling chipsets for internet dongles at a deliberate lower cost to negatively impact rival Icera between 2009 and 2011.Qualcomm is also facing a separate probe by the EU for making illegal payments to a customer, for exclusive use of its chipsets.

What’s Next For Georgia’s Tea Party?

first_img Related Stories Legal Advocate Discusses Medical Abuse At Shut Down Georgia ICE Facility   After strong showings in 2010 and 2012, the Tea Party didn’t fare well in last week’s primary election, with candidates in races for the U.S. Senate and state House speaker’s district losing out to more establishment-type Republicans.The weak showing has some local political experts wondering what’s next for the Tea Party in Georgia, and whether the movement will continue to play a role in determining both state and national elections.As heard on the radio2:19Take the GOP race for U.S. Senate, which earlier this year was seen as a possible pickup for a Tea Party Republican.Last Tuesday, 22-year veteran Congressman Jack Kingston and wealthy businessman David Perdue made the runoff. Tea Party favorites Congressmen Paul Broun and Phil Gingrey and Former Secretary of State Karen Handel all came up short.“I think one of things we’re seeing is one: The Tea Party is weakening,” said  Charles Bullock, who teaches political science at the University of Georgia.“Or, alternatively, people who are kind of more mainstream are kind of rallying to the cause of the Republican Party. And it’s not just in Georgia. This has not been a good year so far for any of the primaries for the Tea Party,” said Bullock, pointing to high-profile Tea Party loses in Oregon and Kentucky.Atlanta Tea Party co-founder Debbie Dooley, however, sees the Georgia U.S. Senate race differently.“There was really not one Tea Party candidate because the support was so scattered across the field,” she said, adding that, combined, Handel, Gingrey and Broun garnered about 40 percent of the vote. Dooley said it’s proof the Tea Party will continue to be a strong force in future Georgia elections.Dooley also pointed to the race to unseat state House Speaker David Ralston as more evidence of the Tea Party’s power.“Look at the people in his home county. Thirty percent wanted him replaced,” she said.In that race, Tea Party supporters backed Republican Sam Snider. Just weeks before the election, the Tea Party aired attack ads targeting Ralston, portraying him as soft on crime and more sympathetic to metro-Atlanta needs, rather than those of his rural north-Georgia district.But Ralston still won his primary by a landslide, claiming victory with almost 65 percent of the vote in his district.Georgia State University Political Science lecturer Steven Anthony attributed the Tea Party losses to a big push back from the state’s more centrist voters and business groups.“In a way, the party has been operating in a vacuum in the last few years,” he said. “There hasn’t been a lot of push back. Certainly the Democrats and the Democratic Party haven’t been able to do anything about it, so they’ve kind of had the field to themselves. Now they don’t have the field to themselves anymore.”Anthony said the Tea Party faces irrelevancy going forward if it doesn’t move away from the “my way or the highway” stance.UGA’s Bullock said if the Tea Party saw any success this year, it was pushing more moderate candidates farther right.“Prospective office holders have been very concerned about not wanting to alienate the Tea Party,” he said. “So even if they’re not part of the Tea Party, they didn’t want to have the Tea Party running against them.”As for the upcoming July runoff, Dooley said the Tea Party is looking at which candidates to back.

They want to make Saudi the home of boxing.“That’s their plan and I know the fights they are looking at for next year. Since we’ve done this deal, everybody’s been on it. “I believe Wilder and Tyson Fury had discussions about having their rematch here. But the one they really want is AJ against Wilder.” SunSport reported how AJ could bank a staggering £66m from Saturday’s scrap, with the champ Ruiz Jr pocketing £10m.And Hearn believes the main event could smash the UK pay-per-view record.This is currently held by Joshua’s 11th-round stoppage win against Wladimir Klitschko back in 2017, amassing 1.5m PPVs.

Henshaw continues his illustrious career

first_imgPSC Golf from Lewiinski’s Golf SocietySunday, June 26, Green Valley – Stableford1st Peter Henshaw (25) 34pts2nd Ed Wyckoff (11) 33pts3rd Per-olov Lindmark (26) 31ptsMickey ‘nine holes’ Beresford’s hopes of winning three straight Sunday outings at Green Valley took a tumble as the wheels came off big time. To be fair the course was in excellent condition although the fairways were very wet from the overnight storms, with the greens like glass which made for very tricky golf.Red hot Peter Henshaw. Mickey managed a total of just five points on the outer nine and did slightly better on the inward nine with 12 points. On a lighter note one must remember that all the seventeen points were put together on just ten holes – that’s right eight wipes.The man who handled the conditions best was Ireland’s Peter ‘the silver surfer’ Henshaw who took the days honours with 34 points. Peter was one stroke clear of Ed “our man in the Whitehouse” Wyckoff. The subdued Per-olov Lindmark closed the flight with 31 points.Monday, June 27, Crystal Bay B+C – Stableford1st Takeshi Hakozaki (16) 39pts2nd Peter Walker (19) 38pts3rd Mark Bamber (8) 36pts4th Daryl Evans (22) 35ptsCrystal Bay as always nowadays is in first class condition compared to some of the courses in the area, including the much vaunted Laem Chabang which cost four times more to play on a normal day and is definitely not in better condition.Tom Gorey.The day’s man of the match was Takeshi Hakozaki San who shot a splendid 39 points. Takeshi was one shot clear of Peter Walker. Mark Bamber filled the third spot on the podium with a solid even par round.Because of the increase in golfers, a fourth podium spot was on offer. This was filled by Daryl Evans with 35 points.Wednesday, June 29, Greenwood A+B – Stableford1st Peter Henshaw (25) 33pts2nd Kevin Rogers (10) 31pts3rd Jim Elphick (26) 27ptsWas it the length of the ride out? Was it the glass like Wolveridge and Thomson designed greens? Was it the extra club wind? Were they just lousy golfers with unfounded visions of grandeur? Whatever it was it was ugly with no golfer matching par.The only shining light was Peter ‘the silver surfer’ Henshaw who posted 33 match wining points for his second win of the week. Aussie star Kevin Rogers took the second spot two shots adrift. Jimmy ‘two shots’ Elphick was happy to see any part of the podium with his 27 pts.Friday, July 1, Pattana A+B – Stableford1st Tom Gorey (17) 36pts2nd Peter Henshaw (25) 35pts3rd Mark Bamber (8) 34ptsMickey Beresford.On a beautiful day with a stiff breeze and a course in tip top shape, and the A+B layouts at the always challenging Pattana, it was no surprise that no one bettered their handicap. The Irish lads dominated the day’s play with Co Kilkenny man Tom ‘the Irish Rover’ Gorey returning the best score of the day with a solid even par round. Tom was followed up the podium steps by his good friend and the man in form, Peter ‘the silver surfer’ Henshaw, who was one stroke adrift. This podium visit made it three times this week.Three players vied for the remaining third place podium spot: Mark Bamber, Christy ‘Good’ Knight and Jimmy ‘Two Shots’ Elphick. The scales of justice tipped in Mark’s favour, leaving Christy and Jim at sea level and pot less.Note: Lewiinski’s is situated on Pattaya land Soi 1, Beach Rd Soi13/13 near walking street. Anyone wishing to play with us just pop in and add your name to the list otherwise why not call Peter on 0861396301. Transport is provided.last_img read more

Patrick Roberts ready to impress new Celtic boss and Pep Guardiola

first_imgPatrick Roberts says the prospect of impressing a new manager at Celtic and Manchester City isn’t daunting as it has become the norm in his young career.The 19-year-old, who joined the Scottish champions from the English giants on an 19-month loan deal in January, will have to prove himself to Ronny Deila’s replacement as well as City’s new boss Pep Guardiola next season.Roberts, who signed a £12m deal with City last summer, is well used to managerial instability having seen plenty of comings and goings during his spell with his first club Fulham.And the 19-year-old, who was named Premiership Player of the Month for April, believes his experiences at Craven Cottage will stand him in good stead for whoever arrives in Glasgow’s east end. He said: “I’ve had new managers when I was at Fulham, I think I had four so new managers come and go. It’s part and parcel of football.“My priority is always to impress the manager so whoever I have to impress then I’ll try to do so. If you can make a good first impression it can be good.“A manager comes in and they have players they like or bring in their own so if you’re already here you have to make sure they like you.”last_img read more
