NFL free agency news: Dolphins sign Allen Hurns to 1-year deal

first_imgAllen Hurns wasn’t without a team for very long.Just a few days after being released by the Cowboys, the 27-year-old agreed to a one-year deal with the Dolphins early Friday, the team announced. Hurns’ new deal reportedly is worth up to $3 million.  Hurns told NFL Media he has “no limitations” as he’s coming off a gruesome leg injury suffered in the Cowboys’ 24-22 win over the Seahawks in the wild-card round of last season’s playoffs. Cardinals’ Kyler Murray starts training camp as ‘the future of the franchise,’ coach Kliff Kingsbury says Hurns, who played high school and college football in Miami, had 20 catches for 295 yards and two touchdowns last season for Dallas — easily the least productive season of his career. He went undrafted in 2014 before catching on with the Jaguars, where he spent four seasons and caught 21 touchdowns.Now back in the state of Florida, Hurns joins a team in full rebuild mode and will compete for targets with Albert Wilson, DeVante Parker and Kenny Stills. “If he’s not ready to compete for a position, this isn’t the place for him. Allen understands that,” Flores said. “There’s no solidified or locked in spots here. You’ve got to earn them.” We have signed WR Allen Hurns and activated safety T.J. McDonald off the physically unable to perform list.Full Release: https://t.co/1SkByr55bm— Miami Dolphins (@MiamiDolphins) July 26, 2019″The decision was to bring in competition, bring in what we feel like is a good player, someone who embodies a lot of the characteristics we are [talking] about,” Dolphins head coach Brian Flores said of Hurns on Thursday. “He’s tough, he’s competitive, he’s been reliable over the course of the career.”Dallas hoped to keep Hurns at a smaller price tag than what he was due in the final season of the two-year, $12 million deal he signed with the team last offseason. However, Hurns wanted to see what he could get on the open market.

South Africa can be a leader in sport for social change

first_imgBeyond Sport is a UK organisation that can help young men and women apply the skills and values they learn through playing sport to all aspects of their lives. • Ellis uses sport to build a better world • Promising future for South African football• Fifa World Cup Legacy Trust has changed lives • Dreamfields changes lives• Women’s sport in the spotlight with gsportShamin ChibbaNelson Mandela once said that sport had the power to change the world, to inspire, and to unite people in a way little else did. These words of the late statesman echoed through the 2014 Beyond Sport Summit and Awards held in Johannesburg between 28 and 30 October.Beyond Sport, a global non-profit organisation that promotes the use of sport to create positive social change, used the event to explore ways in which sport could be used to tackle a range of issues affecting society, such as HIV/Aids, poverty and even bullying. It was the second time the event was held in South Africa; the first was in Cape Town in 2011. According to Nick Keller, Beyond Sport’s founder, the event returned to our shores because the country had the potential to become the world leader in using sport for social change.“The South African sports industry is very vibrant and passionate,” said Keller. “With that vibrancy and the support of the business world, against the context of social issues here, you have a fantastic opportunity to become a world leader of sport for social change. So for us to come down here really takes us to the heart of where we believe sport for social change can have the greatest impact.”Among the speakers at the event was former Bafana Bafana and Leeds United legend, Lucas Radebe. Speaking to Media Club South Africa at the Nike Football Training Centre in Soweto, Radebe said that as a Beyond Sport ambassador, he aimed to pass on to the youth the values he had grown up with and even had learned during his playing career. The footballer espouses discipline, a good work ethic and, most of all, honesty: “In my career, I played for four teams, and one of the values I learned was honesty. I was honest to each and every team. I never went from one club to another.”He said the recent killing of Bafana Bafana captain Senzo Meyiwa could be related to a lack of values and role models. Sportsmen and women today had a big responsibility in that they needed to carry the values they learned into every aspect of their lives. “We need to see more of the current players being the role models, exercising the values on and off the field of play. Every weekend the kids are watching and they want to play like [Bafana Bafana footballer] Rivaldo Coetzee.”The Meyiwa tragedy did not bode well for the image of South Africa, Radebe added. “We are trying to make our country safe for tourists and foreign businesspeople who want to come and improve our country, invest in our country. [The killing] doesn’t paint a great picture outside of South Africa. This is something we have to learn from and engage ourselves to make sure it doesn’t happen to the future leaders of this country.” Former Bafana Bafana captain, Lucas Radebe, was this year’s Beyond Sport ambassador. He said more role models are needed to inspire young sportsmen and women. (Image Shamin Chibba)Radebe’s purposeRemembering where he came from – Diepkloof in Soweto – had forged his path through life, Radebe said. Being a footballer during South Africa’s transition from apartheid to democracy had sharpened his career. “It moulded me into who I am in terms of values and withstanding challenges and being hungry for success.”Having achieved so much at international and club levels, he was now focused on creating opportunities for young professional footballers. “I want to bring guidance as well as knowledge of what football can do to change one’s life and [affect] you as an individual and society.”Origins of Beyond SportKeller was not much of an academic during his adolescence. He describes himself as a poor student, who “didn’t understand what people were talking about in class”. But he did understand what happened on the playing field. “I found solace on the rugby pitch, the tennis court, the swimming pool, the hockey field, any place that took me out of that place of discomfort, which was the classroom, where I felt a lesser self than I did on the sports field,” he said.The lessons he learned as a sportsman led to his founding of Beyond Sport in 2009; Keller decided to use sport as a tool for social change when he noticed that no one else was doing so. He called on Barclays Bank for support and it agreed immediately. “We knew that sport could be a very good protagonist for the corporate world to engage.”He said the biggest issue facing humanity at the moment was the growing young population. As a result, the youth was the most excluded group of people, the most unemployed and the ones suffering from poor education.Beyond Sport’s purpose was to find a way to engage with these young people. “The same conversation has to happen in London, Johannesburg, Nairobi, and in the smaller villages and towns,” said Keller. “This movement towards urban environments is putting young people in peril and making them more excluded. The challenge is much the same worldwide. Because as we all move to urban environments, we all face urban problems.” The Nike Football Training Centre in Soweto hosted the second day of the Beyond Sport Summit, which featured a number of workshops on issues ranging from HIV/Aids to youth development in cricket. (Image: Shamin Chibba) Calling on business to helpBeyond Sport, Keller said, was sending the message to corporates that they needed to be a part of society and that they could help to create positive change while meeting their business objectives. “We are of the view that the Barclays and Absas of this world can help to drive their business and create more sustainable change. And what we see is that not all profit is equal. Profit that drives social change is of more interest to us than anything else.”Philanthropy had changed in that it was no longer just about corporate social responsibility, when companies felt obliged to help society and felt good about themselves for doing so. Nowadays, he said, businesses wanted to understand the impact they were having on the people they were helping.In South Africa, philanthropy sat between corporate social responsibility, Keller said, and what he called shared value, which allowed companies to make a tangible impact on society. “With corporate social responsibility we have always seen profit as an apple, and a bite out of that apple. But what we are interested in is a company engaging in social change that can grow the size of the apple itself.”This idea of shared value was driving Barclays in the United Kingdom to try to get five million young men and women employed and their life skills improved. “It shows a great understanding that if Barclays can support that many people [it] will also have more customers, more prosperous customers and [its] desire to help people achieve their ambitions in the right way is going to help [the bank to] drive business as well.”The summit and awards have been taken to London, Chicago and Cape Town. Speakers at past events have included David Beckham, Muhammad Ali, Francois Pienaar and Tony Blair.last_img read more

Facebook Now Oh, So Close to Blowing Location Wide Open

first_imgA Comprehensive Guide to a Content Audit Facebook now publishes its millions of user generated event listings according to the standardized microformats hCalendar and hCard, according to an announcement today by microformats community leader Tantek Çelik. That means that the venues where all these events are being held are now described in a universally standardized way. If Facebook were to take one more step and allow websites other than the big 3 search engines to index its events listings, then that could tip the scales and move everyone in the industry to understand places around the world in the same simple terms. Joe’s Diner in Denver could be understood to be the same place across Facebook, Foursquare and a world of other location-aware applications if only one giant player in location listings had high-quality Place database marked up in the hCard microformat and publicly accessible. Is Facebook going to do that? Probably not. On the right, you can see the front page of Gowalla’s iPhone app. Gowalla now aggregates check-ins from my contacts on its service, on Facebook and on Foursquare. You can see that the top check-in at Petco Pet Supplies is from a Gowalla friend. I could drill down through that Place and learn all about the location: its address, it’s phone number, notes and photos left, previous check-ins. But below that is a check-in from Facebook. “Keene High School?” Gowalla asks if I try to click through to the Place page. “Never heard of it!” Come on Facebook, now that you’ve described these Places in hCal – won’t you let other services come in and make a record of the places your users have gone, in a common standard format that all apps can understand?Facebook allows Google, Bing and Yahoo to index its events listings, but not other search and indexing services. Parties seeking to index publicly available Facebook data are required to sign a legal contract and in some cases even after they are willing to do that, get the cold shoulder from Facebook headquarters.One of the morals of the social media story is this: by giving up control over information, by sharing instead of hoarding, we might lose out on some short term advantage based on scarcity. But we will gain influence, good will and advantage by helping the larger ecosystem of innovation move much, much faster. Facebook would do well to consider that strategy with the huge database of Places it has compiled, now dressed up in standardized format, but given nowhere to go.The addition of microformats to event listings today, without a loosening of the limitations on indexing, means little more than that one person can interact with one event at a time using a browser plug-in that few people are likely to install. So much more could be made possible.Well-backed data startup Factual last night updated its location datasets to include something very close to full hCard support, but there’s nothing quite like a set of places defined and verified by real-world users check-ing with their phones.Like Train Tracks to NowhereData standards are believed to be important because they can be a huge enabler of innovation: it’s argued that by lowering the barriers to interoperability and collaboration through normalization of data input into whatever processes are created, standards lay the foundation of technical innovation. It’s just like when the railways in the United States adopted a standardized track width, then transcontinental transit and transport were made possible across different train networks.To publish Place data in the standardized format, but not in an open and accessible way, is like building tracks the same width as all the others, but not only letting a few of the biggest train companies ride those rails. It takes a lot of the steam out of what could be a situations rich with potential for innovation from thousands of smaller players.We’ve emailed Facebook to ask whether the company will be making these standardized event and place listings available to services other than Google, Bing and Yahoo. I’ll update this post when we get their response, but I would be shocked if they were in fact going to make that data available. That’s frustrating.

Part I: How Learning Styles Can Alter the Way Military Families Process Information

first_imgHave you ever thought about how your military caregivers, families, service members and colleagues process information?  As helping professionals we tend to take-in information differently as we learn new things and the same can be said for the military families that we serve. By understanding the various learning styles it may help you, the service provider, better connect with families in order to provide the highest quality educational information to meet their individual needs.There are four principles of adult learning identified by Malcolm Knowles, the pioneer of adult learning: (1) Autonomous and Self-Directed, (2) Life Experiences and Knowledge, (3) Goal-Oriented and Relevancy-Oriented and (4) Practical.In today’s blog, we are focusing on principal #1 (Autonomy and Self-Direction) of adult learning and how the learning style can be applied to those you serve.Autonomy and Self-DirectionAdults that tend to favor Autonomy and Self-Direction like to direct their own learning, and often times like to take on the leadership roles. They prefer to be actively involved in learning and work around their personal goals and specific interests.As a service provider, some things to keep in mind when providing education and training to military families is to have them discuss their personal learning goals for the meeting, session or training that you are providing. When you are working with families, help the individual to reflect on what they have learned and set new goals as a result of the reflection. As their provider, there will be times that you need to also help them modify their goals as needed.Over the course of the next few months the MFLN Military Caregiving concentration will be discussing the remaining three principles of adult learning, as well as adult learning styles. Our goal with this series is to provide military service providers with a better understanding of how adults process information and learn. This MFLN-Military Caregiving concentration blog post was published on July 1, 2016.last_img read more

Olivia Grange, said the Ministry is working with  the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization’s (UNESCO) Creative City Steering Committee, the Urban Development Corporation and the Kingston and St. Andrew Municipal Corporation (KSAC) on the initiative.She said that efforts will also be made to collaborate with other Creative Cities across the world.  Kingston was designated a Creative City of Music by UNESCO on December 11, 2015.  The Minister’s remarks came in a message read by the Director of Entertainment, Policy and Monitoring in the Ministry, Gillian Wilkinson McDaniel, at the launch of the 2017 Grounation series on Saturday (February 4) at the Institute of Jamaica, 10-16 East Street, downtown Kingston.Grounation is the Jamaica Music Museum’s flagship education and cultural community outreach programme.
