Stay with Legal Arena

first_img (1) BERRANCA/POLLY B (2) SONADOR EXPRESSS /IDON’TKNOW (3) AGAKHAN/PIZARRO (4) LEGAL ARENA /TWILIGHT CITIZEN (5) RAISING THE BAR /GOLD MEMBER (6) RUNAWAY GIRL/KING D Both Super-6s start anew on tomorrow’s Win Dem Wheelz Grooms’ Appreciation Day 11-race programme at Caymanas Park, the first of these commencing in the first race over 1300 metres, where the recent winner, BERRANCA, and POLLY B should have a battle royal for top honours in a field of eight. POLLY B, who has been knocking a the door in recent weeks, boasts superior speed and will, no doubt, set off in front with ZUGULU and RALLY BABY in hot pursuit. But the Anthony Nunes-trained filly BERRANCA won’t be far away and, coming off a recent fast-time win with top apprentice Linton Steadman again in the saddle, should catch and beat POLLY B from the convenient mark of 51.0kg. The second race over 1600 metres for maiden four-year-olds and up looks tailored for the lightly raced SANADOR EXPRESS, with the improving 4.0kg claiming apprentice Andre Powell aboard. Trained by Clifford Atkinson Jr, the 4-y-o filly by Camadon out of Fireontheocean caught the eye on her debut last Saturday, finishing two lengths third (staying on) to PRINCESS STATISTIC over 1200 metres, despite being slowly into stride. Now better for the experience and a mile more suitable, SONADOR EXPRESS should win from MR TOPPER TOP MAN and IDON’TKNOW in a field of 10. AGAKHAN, with smart apprentice Bebeto Harvey in the saddle, should be rewarded for his consistency in the third race for $450,000 – $400,000 claimers over 1100 metres. The trip is ideal in a small field of seven. PIZARRO and the speedy GAGA LADY are twin dangers. The improving LEGAL ARENA won by all of 10 lengths in maiden company last Saturday and is tipped to repeat in the fourth race over 1300 metres for non-winners of two. Champion jockey Shane Ellis has retained the ride aboard LEGAL ARENA, who should lead home stable-companions TRADITIONAL STORM and TWILIGHT CITIZEN. The last two races in the first Super-6 should be won by the fleet-footed RAISING THE BAR (Halledeen up) and RUNAWAY GIRL under title chasing jockey Omar Walker. Their respective dangers are GOLD MEMBER in the fifth over the straight and KING D in the sixth. FIRST SUPER-6 FANCIESlast_img read more

I don’t want to think about what could have happened if he was any closer,” he added.Alan described Joshua as a beautiful child who was beginning to leave his baby years behind him.“He was starting to become a little boy and he was starting to leave his baby years behind him.

Apple’s Revenge: iMessage Might Eat Your Texts If You Switch To Android

first_imgThe Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technology Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement selena larson What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces When my best friend upgraded from an iPhone 4S to a Galaxy S4, I texted her hello. Unfortunately, she didn’t get that text, nor any of the five I sent in the following three days. My iPhone didn’t realize she was now an Android user and sent all my texts via iMessage. It wasn’t until she called me about going to brunch that I realized she wasn’t getting my text messages.See also: Apple iOS 8 Preview—Everything We’re ExpectingWhat I thought was just a minor bug is actually a much larger problem. One that, apparently, Apple has no idea how to fix.According to former Lifehacker editor-in-chief Adam Pash, when he complained about the phantom iMessage issue, Apple said that while the company is aware of the situation, it’s not sure how to solve it. An Apple support person told Pash: Related Posts Tags:#Adam Pash#Android#Apple#bug#iMessage#now#texting#texts This is a problem a lot of people are facing.The engineering team is working on it but is apparently clueless as to how to fix it.There are no reliable solutions right now — for some people the standard fixes work immediately; many others are in my boat.Both Apple and Android users have suffered this glitch. While some miraculously figure out how to fix it—I was able to text my friend properly after a couple of days and turning iMessage on and off a few times—others, like Pash, are still stuck. (So, presumably, are at least some of my friend’s other iPhone-using contacts, at least unless they were all lucky enough to fix iMessage the same way I did.)A lengthy thread about the issue on Apple’s support forum has attracted more than 400 replies since it began last June. The “standard fix” Apple suggests—that is, turning off iMessage on all your Apple devices and disassociating your phone number from your Apple ID—doesn’t always work.It rankles users that Apple knows what is going on but has yet come up with a solution. The company has already identified and patched a slew of bugs since the release of iOS7, including major security vulnerabilities, but has yet to fix this iMessage flaw. There isn’t anything users can do right now besides expect an error when you or a friend switches from an iDevice to Android. We’re all stuck in the same mobile vortex, where iMessages go to die.I’ve asked Apple for comment, and will update if and when they get back to me.Image by Kārlis Dambrāns on Flickrlast_img read more

Wimbledon 2011: Painful exit for Sania in first round

first_imgSania Mirza’s form kept changing just like the London weather, sunny to start with and gloomy towards the end as the tired Indian diva lost 6-7, 6-2, 3-6 to Virginie Razzano in the ladies singles first round on Tuesday.As one who has been playing virtually non-stop tennis in the last one year, Sania stepped on Court No. 9 in a spotless white skirt and tee. She looked in great touch to start with, reeling off three games in a row before something wrong happened.”I cannot figure out if something happened with my left hamstring or knee at that stage. After that, I could only serve and return,” said Sania, who played her hearts out before losing.Razzano is the typical battle-hardened pro. Playing for the ninth time at Wimbledon, she was a picture of confidence, though for a short spell in the second set, she was flummoxed by the Indian’s aggression.The Frenchwoman does not have a great serve and she relies more on her height (5 feet and 9 inches) to get a sharp trajectory when she fires the ball. If you look it from a technical point of view, there is no racquet head acceleration. Yet, she is consistent, which helped her in the third set against Sania.For her part, Sania could have served better. However, considering the pain barrier she did well to stand on court and win the second set at a fast clip. The third set, too, was full of ups and downs and the big moment came in the seventh game after Sania was broken after five deuces.advertisement”To be honest, even if I had pulled this win, I would possibly not have been ready for (Caroline) Wozniacki,” said Sania.Sania goes for an ultrasound and MRI scan to check where the problem is. “I have been playing in pain since the French Open. It was 21 days of non- stop tennis from Paris to Birmingham. Such kind of abuse was going to hurt,” Sania told Mail Today.Reflecting on her comeback in tennis after marrying Shoaib Malik last year, Sania said being on the court without a break was taxing. “I played the Commonwealth Games, the Asian Games, WTA Tour events and also the Fed Cup. Add to it singles, doubles and qualifying, it has been a hard grind,” said Sania.However, the Indian superstar is not sure about the immediate future. “If you ask me now how it feels now, it is bad. I haven’t decided on the women’s doubles and mixed doubles,” added Sania.Talking about her opponent, Sania said: “Razzano is a tough player. You cannot go by her ranking now, she has been at the Wimbledon fourth round and she fought well today. She is a very strong player.”Asked to comment on the emotional comeback by Serena Williams, Sania said she could understand how the American felt.”Tennis takes a lot out of you. It’s great to see Serena back as she loves tennis. When you are forced to do something you love doing, it’s painful. So I can understand the emotions Serena felt in her comeback,” added Sania.For more news on India, click here.For more news on Business, click here.For more news on Movies, click here.For more news on Sports, click here.last_img read more

The Highest Paid MBA Starting Salaries in London

first_img regions: London Last Updated Sep 21, 2017 by Alanna ShafferFacebookTwitterLinkedinemail The draws of London may be too numerous to list: from a booming global economy to robust historic and cultural attractions, the city has a little something for everyone.It’s likely no surprise that the city would take the sixth spot in The Atlantic‘s list of the “World’s Best Cities for Business, Life and Innovation.” While a number of factors were taken into consideration for creating the list, London’s ranking was likely boosted by its top spot in financial/business employment, and its 2nd overall spot in attracting job-creating foreign investment.Such attributes make London an ideal spot for those pursuing or graduating with MBA degrees. As a center for global business, the opportunities for someone with the skills of an MBA are seemingly endless. However, the same vibrancy that attracts visitors across the world to London can make it an incredibly expensive city to live in from day-to-day, and those considering a move will need to consider both the cost of the city as well as earning potential. Thankfully, London is home to some of the top MBA programs in the world, boosting the hireability and earning potential of graduates.The Highest Paid London MBA SalariesSaïd Business School – University of OxfordStudents at the Saïd Business School at the world-renowned University of Oxford take their education to countries around the world and into a wide variety of industries. Even considering the uncertainty brought to businesses in UK with the ‘Brexit’ referendum, the salaries of Oxford MBA graduates continue to rise from from the previous class to 2016 graduates. The average class salary for recent MBA grads at Saïd was £69,132, or $93,404 US—an increase of almost $13,000 from the previous year. These salaries varied slightly with industry, with salary averages for fields like finance and consulting reaching $96,273 and $98,458, respectively.London Business SchoolWith a staggering 96 percent of MBA graduates from London Business School accepting an offer within just three months of graduation, LBS graduates don’t need to wait long to start their dream job, with hopefully a salary to match. For MBA graduates of LBS, the average salary could range between £32,000 and £151,000, with the mean coming at an impressive £77,600. Salaries varied slightly between industries and also by region, with LBS graduates staying in the UK making slightly less than those venturing to North America.READ MORE: “London Business School Launches More Flexible MBA”Judge Business School—University of CambridgeGraduates from the University of Cambridge Judge Business School will quickly realize the benefits of having such a well-regarded degree: about 92 percent of students from the graduating class received job offers within three months of earning their degree. The Cambridge MBA data also reveals the degree’s success in aiding those as they transition to a new career—98 percent of the 2015 graduating class switched either country, function, or industry sector just two years after graduating. The typical salary of Judge graduates increased greatly for the MBA class of 2015—likely a result of fluctuations in the pound after the Brexit decision—at a current average of £99,000, or, $133,792 USD.Cass Business School—City University LondonThe Cass Business School at the City University London ranks among the top three schools for career development in the UK, a ranking reflected in the data of MBA graduates from the University. About 87 percent of MBA graduates reported a 53 percent increase in their salary. The average salary for MBA graduates at Cass is $99,000, with an even greater increase for those with an Executive MBA degree, at $130,000.
