Liverpool star ‘can beat any player in this league’ says defender Toure

first_imgLiverpool defender Kolo Toure has hailed Raheem Sterling following the Harlesden teenager’s recent performances. The 19-year-old has gone from strength to strength this season and has made nine consecutive starts for Brendan Rodgers’ side.Sterling has been touted as a strong contender for England’s World Cup squad, particularly as Arsenal’s Theo Walcott has been ruled out of the tournament with a knee injury.“For me at the moment Raheem is one of the best players in our team,” Toure told the Liverpool Echo.“He can beat any player in this league with his pace and skill. He’s very strong and compact. He works so hard for the team and this boy certainly has a very bright future.“He’s playing more games now and when you play a number of games in a row you get a lot of confidence. For a young player like that to be playing at that level is amazing.”See also:Sterling assured over Liverpool role Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

1st Day, 1st Achievers: Geocaching HQ Staff Give #7SofA a Go on Day 1

first_imgBy Heather FeatherHeather Feather puts her 7SofA game face on.Editor’s Note: Heather Murdoch (Username: Heather Feather) is a member of the Community Volunteer Support team at Geocaching HQ and (perhaps more importantly for the month of August) a member of The Explorer team for an internal HQ competition. Heather and her teammates,  Founder Jeremy Irish (Username: Jeremy), Community Manager Sara Baarda (Username: Sara B), Community Volunteer Support Team Manager Cindy Potter (Username: Frau Potter), and Engineering Intern Virangi Shah (Username: virangishah) attempted to earn Achiever status on August 1st. This is their (obviously, epic) story.Friday, August 1st was a whirlwind of a day! The 7 Souvenirs of August had finally been unleashed, sending geocachers out into the world with one mission: GET SOUVENIRS!!!It was no different for Geocaching HQ. Geocaching HQ staff had been divided into 6 teams: The Puzzlers, The Sightseers, The Nature Lovers, The Socializers, The Collectors, and last but not least (my team) The Explorers. Together, we were faced with a challenge: the team (and all its members) to earn all 7 souvenirs first, wins. Wins what? Well we don’t know yet, but the competitive creature in me only heard WIN.Thus, the race was on! Several Explorers wasted no time, piled in a van, and jetted out on the ferry (yes, the ferry!) from Seattle, WA to Bremerton (across Puget Sound from Seattle). Founder Jeremy Irish taught us how to play a deceptively “easy” and hilarious card game involving a princess, love letters, and her royal court. This was critically helpful for our team building, but no souvenirs were earned yet.But that was about to change.Stop #1: The PuzzlerThe ferry ride over! Sweet shades!Silverdale, to see about a Mystery Cache. Ground zero was located in a cute, little library. Quick calculations earned us The Puzzler in no time.Stop #2: The ExplorerAcross the street to “the dark side.” But really, it was a Darth Vader-themed geocache. Along with a few fellow geocachers also on the 7SofA hunt, we oohed, we ahhed, we used the force and earned The Explorer!Stop #3: The Nature LoverNext, we delved into the wondrous and dusty epochs of glacial erratics. A refreshing trail jaunt and gettin’ schooled on a few geo-educational nuggets earned us The Nature Lover.Stop #4: The CollectorOur fourth stop took us right by a beautiful lily pad-filled lake. Rather appropriate, no? We were tempted to go for a quick swim, but stayed the course and earned The Collector with a Letterbox Cache instead.Stop #5: The SightseerWith over half of the souvenirs under our belts, the end was in sight! Where else to go next than a cemetery? At a nearby quaint and quiet neighborhood plot, we upgraded the decaying cache with some new digs and earned The Sightseer. At this point we were getting a little delirious, and thought it was a good idea to put on lots of sunglasses for a photoshoot. Maybe it was all the over-ripe blackberries we ate…either way it was a real good time!Geocaching.com Founder Jeremy and Engineering InternVirangi investigate the geocache.Stop #6: The SocializerEarning The Socializer was a treat. We attended a nearby Event Cache to swap stories from the day with fellow geocachers, crossed our fingers for the raffle prizes, and had a bite to eat. It was great to put some faces to names that we had seen in the logbooks that day.7SofA Mission Accomplished!With all six souvenirs logged, the Achiever was unlocked – for the win! Mission accomplished! Of course, we couldn’t help being over-achievers and logging a few more geocaches on our route back home. Over nine hours of fun and adventure – what a way to kick off August!Editor’s Note: Shortly following this excursion, the remaining members of The Explorer team also unlocked all 7 Souvenirs of August, making them the first Geocaching HQ team to claim Achiever status. Heather Feather is *trying* not to gloat, but it’s true – they are the winners!Share with your Friends:More SharePrint RelatedDear Geocaching Diary: 31 Days of Adventure with Geocaching HQAugust 7, 2013In “Community”Dear Geocaching Diary: Twice the Finds, Twice the FunAugust 16, 2013In “Community”An Achiever’s Reflection on the 7 Souvenirs of AugustAugust 27, 2014In “7 Souvenirs of August”last_img read more

How to Integrate FCPX Into Logic Pro X

first_imgLogic Pro X is a solid audio solution for editing and mixing your productions. Get the most out of it by integrating Final Cut Pro X.During the development of my last documentary film, I went into the audio mixing sessions with my sound designer noticed that he wasn’t using the industry standard Pro Tools 12. Instead, he was using Logic Pro X. Being a film score composer who had been trained to use Pro Tools, he proceeded to tell me that more and more composers are making the move to either Ableton Live or Logic Pro.What I learned is that Pro Tools still runs around $800, Ableton Live runs $600 for the Intro version, and Logic Pro X is the cheapest route of the three at $200. This seemed to be an incredible value. Now, the built-in instruments aren’t too impressive, as they are essentially what you’ll find in GarageBand. But my sound designer was able to maximize the software’s usability by purchasing add-ons like GeoSonics from SonicCulture, Hans Zimmer Percussion from Spitfire Audio and Strings and Brass from East West.To help you successfully integrate your FCPX audio into Logic Pro X and back again, check out this great video from Dan Allen’s YouTube Channel.If you want a more comprehensive introduction to Logic Pro X, take a look at these extremely useful tutorials from MusicTechHelpGuy.Getting Starting in Logic XHow to Turn on Advanced ToolsWant to know more about film audio?

Jeo Ambohot vs Sidney Onwubere. Photo by Tristan Tamayo/ INQUIRER.netAfter missing the Final Four last year, Letran coach Jeff Napa has stressed that this time the load could not be carried by the veterans alone.That’s why he was satisfied when role players like Jeo Ambohot produced huge contributions on Tuesday when the Knights fended off Emilio Aguinaldo College, 83-80, and lock down their first win of NCAA Season 93.ADVERTISEMENT “It’s a given that all of my players will step up. It’s really just a matter of time on when they can compliment, especially that Rey (Nambatac) is being guarded heavily,” the mentor said.Showing that he’s an able finisher for Nambatac’s pick-and-roll plays, Ambohot impressed in the game as he fired a team-best 15 points, seven rebounds, and two blocks in the win.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSSEA Games: Biñan football stadium stands out in preparedness, completionSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSWin or don’t eat: the Philippines’ poverty-driven, world-beating pool starsMore importantly, the 6-foot-5 big man limited the Generals’ towering Hamadou Laminou to just seven points in the tiff, negating the latter’s presence down low.But the 20-year-old center deflected the credit.

They helped me and I helped them, and that’s the reason why we limited him in his points,” the Compostela Valley native said in Filipino.Ambohot acknowledges that expectations are bound to get higher after he churned this standout performance but he’s taking the challenge of defending the paint for the Knights against bigger and stronger foes head on.“I have to fill the losses with the graduations of Jom Sollano and Felix Apreku. We know we really have to step up, and though we’re undersized, we know that we can’t do anything but to fight,” he said.Letran springs back to action on Friday against JRU.ADVERTISEMENT Ethel Booba on hotel’s clarification that ‘kikiam’ is ‘chicken sausage’: ‘Kung di pa pansinin, baka isipin nila ok lang’ Church, environmentalists ask DENR to revoke ECC of Quezon province coal plant Robredo: True leaders perform well despite having ‘uninspiring’ boss PLAY LIST 02:49Robredo: True leaders perform well despite having ‘uninspiring’ boss02:42PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games01:44Philippines marks anniversary of massacre with calls for justice01:19Fire erupts in Barangay Tatalon in Quezon City01:07Trump talks impeachment while meeting NCAA athletes02:49World-class track facilities installed at NCC for SEA Games View commentslast_img read more
