Subscribe All newsletters Things That Caught My EyeMarc-Andre Fleury is outstandingVegas Golden Knights goalie Marc-Andre Fleury is in the middle of one of the best ever playoffs for a goalie, pitching four shutouts in his first 10 starts. There have been 14 goalie-seasons since ’79 where a player posted four or more shutouts in a playoff run, and in six of those fourteen seasons the goalie’s team went on to win the Stanley Cup. [FiveThirtyEight]Loose and improvisational lineups in ClevelandCleveland’s most used lineup in the playoff series against the Pacers and Raptors was George Hill, J.R. Smith, Kyle Korver, LeBron James and Kevin Love. Those five men were on the court together for a collective 110 minutes. During the regular season, those five players were on the court together for zero minutes. This could be one indication of how the barely-50 win regular season Cavs have turned into an unstoppable juggernaut, mainly because they Ship of Theseus’d this one. [FiveThirtyEight]Iceland made great once moreHafthor Julius Bjornsson, who “Game of Thrones” fans may recognize as the enormous actor behind Ser Gregor Clegane, has won the World’s Strongest Man competition in the Philippines last weekend. Bjornsson is the first Icelander to win since 1996, bringing the title home to a nation that once dominated the strongman competition when Jon Pall Sigmarsson and Magnus ver Magnusson won 8 contests in 11 years in the ’80s and early ’90s. [The New York Times]Try out our interactive, Which World Cup Team Should You Root For?New York may have a home game in OWL championshipsThe NYXL, New York’s team in the Overwatch League, is an early favorite to take the inaugural championship, with two stage final victories, a 23-7 match record, and a +68 map differential. Here’s some more good news: the July championship is scheduled to take place on their home turf, with Brooklyn’s Barclays Center tapped as the host of the two-day championship weekend. [ESPN]Players Tournament is the real golf competitionAn average PGA Tour player has no better than an 0.18 percent win probability at any of the majors from 2011 to 2017. The Players Tournament is a much stronger field than the majors, some of which allow club professionals, former winners and amateurs to compete. The Players Tournament is way more exclusive, which forbids amateurs, club pros, sectional qualifiers, and caps winners at five years of subsequent invitations. The average PGA player had no better than a 0.12 percent win probability at the Players Championship in all but a single year over the same period. [FiveThirtyEight]Position players get itAn MLB.com survey of 35 position players and 35 pitchers asked them which stats they analyze come the end of the season to evaluate their own performance. Looking at position players, 16 out of 35 identified on-base plus slugging (OPS) and on-base percentage (OBP) as their preferred metric, which is a pretty remarkable win for baseball nerds. [Deadspin]Some personal news, though, before we get to the big number: I’m leaving FiveThirtyEight to start a forthcoming daily morning newsletter, Numlock News, and work on other exciting projects.

Jamaicans urged to support youth in Juvenile Remand Centres

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#Jamaica, December 18, 2017 – Kingston – Chairman of the non-profit organisation, Trust for the Americas, Michael Lee-Chin, is calling on influential individuals to provide support for youth, specifically girls in juvenile remand centres, so they can be in a better position to thrive when they leave the system.“Those of us who have a voice in the system and power in the marketplace should make sure we extend those facilities to those of our daughters in (juvenile remand centres) who don’t have a voice… to give them the (opportunity) to be contributory citizens eventually,” he said.   The Chairman was speaking during a visit to the South Camp Road Juvenile Remand and Correctional Centre on Wednesday (December 13).Mr. Lee-Chin told JIS News that Trust for the Americas will be leading the charge for support by designing a programme for the girls at the Centre “that will give them the support they need”.“The good thing is that they are in a captive environment (in a positive way) where we can influence them in terms of values, in terms of getting them caught up with school.   In fact, they should be ahead of their peers,  and at the same time, we have to look  at transitioning, so that they never come back in this situation and that they are optimistic that they can be contributing citizens to Jamaica,” he said.“Our job is to help you to get to that point where you feel confident, you feel optimistic, you feel like a good person.   We are going to do whatever it takes to help you be transformed from who you think you are now to the beautiful person that is within you,” he assured the girls.In the meantime, State Minister in the Ministry of National Security, Senator the Hon. Pearnel Charles Jr.; and State Minister for Education, Youth and Information, Hon. Floyd Green, who accompanied Mr. Lee-Chin on the tour of the facility, welcomed the support already being provided under the New Path initiative as well as the additional support that will be forthcoming.A New Path was implemented by the Organization of American States (OAS) and Trust for the Americas, with financial support from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).   The project, which began in January 2015, was scheduled to end in January 2017 but has been extended until September 2019.The Trust for the Americas, in collaboration with the Organization of American States (OAS), currently works with young offenders in juvenile centres across the island, including South Camp Road, under its ‘A New Path’ initiative.   It also targets youth in State care facilities and the Citizen Security and Justice Programme (CSJP).The initiative aims to provide hope to marginalised young people who have come into conflict with the law, by providing them with the requisite skills for reintegration into the society.   The Programme is designed to enhance the youngsters’ emotional well-being, which it is anticipated will contribute to reduced recidivism and, ultimately, reduced crime and violence.It offers and facilitates weekly counselling, the implementation of educational and vocational training, conflict-resolution programmes as well as opportunities for apprenticeship and internship.   It works on key areas that can enable the successful economic and social integration of youth.Also included in the initiative is a music programme, in collaboration with the National Youth Orchestra, and a sports aspect facilitated by the Youth Development Network.Press Release: JIS Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Related Items:last_img read more

MG Motors Hector plays iSMART card to trump rivals from Tata Jeep

first_img Jeep Compass Trailhawk edition coming to India The Indian automobile market is a competitive space and tightly knit for new entrants to make their way without crossing a few hurdles. Consumers have their favourite brands when it comes to buying a car, be it SUV, sedan or hatchback. Of late, the SUV segment is under the spotlight with entries like Tata Harrier and Jeep Compass, and a new entry is expected to disrupt the harmony of these existing brands.British-origin automobile brand, MG Motors, has announced that it will be launching its first SUV in India next month. MG Hector will be pitted against the most popular mid-size SUV options in India, including Jeep Compass, Tata Harrier and Hyundai Creta. Seeing how tough the challenge is going to be, MG Motors has some neat tricks up its sleeve that will surely make rivals feel the heat.MG Hector SUV looks muscular, but there’s much more than just the way the car looks. MG Hector is smarter than probably every other car in its segment in India and the iSMART card is going to do wonders for the company.MG Hector is touted as the company’s first internet car that features an advanced connectivity system called iSMART, which combines hardware, software, services and application.

MG Motors iSMART technology in Hector SUVMG MotorsMG Hector will feature a 10.4-inch command console with a touch-screen display that will have pre-loaded entertainment content. MG Hector SUV will also be the country’s first car with an embedded eSIM, which will support IPV6 connectivity and be ready for 5G when rolled out. To make things further interesting, MG Motors has Airtel onboard to offer free data for the first few years to its customers buying the car. Now you can stream music or videos without having to connect a third-party source such as a smartphone to the car’s infotainment system. What a relief!The British car brand has also eliminated the need for customers to drive to service centres for updating systems, which will be done over-the-air (OTA) – thanks to the integrated connectivity. Through these updates, car owners will receive new themes, infotainment content, latest map updates and much more. MG Motors iSMART technology in Hector SUVMG MotorsMG Hector will be the defining factor of the brand’s foray in India. By making sure it checks all the right boxes, MG Motors is out for the win.
