first_imgOne of the tapes believed to detail a conversation between 22-year-old Sarah Kwabla and Black Stars Captain Asamoah Gyan has surfaced.In the tape, a voice sounding like that of the Ghana captain tries to persuade Kwabla to not only terminate a pregnancy, but also delete a sex tape. The Gyan camp has not commented on this latest twist to the issue, which began with claims from Kwabla that the player forcibly had anal sex with her – in addition to rape – causing her to bleed profusely. She also accuses the striker of refusing to take responsibility for her pregnancy.Miss Kwabla is also alleged to have asked Asamoah Gyan to get her a furnished apartment, a housemaid and a monthly stipend of $1,000 for postnatal care.But the Black Stars captain rejected the conditions describing, Kwabla’s actions as an attempt to blackmail him.The Joy Sports team provides the full transcript of the tape, which has been widely circulated on social media.

first_imgAustralia’s sporting clubs have the potential to recruit over 1.1 million Australian primary school aged children in sport if they can address the key barriers to their sport participation, according to a new research report released this week. Minister for Sport, Senator Kate Lundy said the report – Market Segmentation for Sport Participation: Children 5-13 years old – identified the key motivators, needs and barriers that underpin Australian children’s participation in sport.“Young children tend to be fans of sport, and we see large numbers of primary-school aged children getting involved in club-based sport,” Senator Lundy said.“But, this research tells us that older kids often see sports clubs as competitive and overly focused on performance. These things are taking the fun out of sports participation for some kids. “The challenge for clubs is to remember that kids just want to have fun, and kids will leave club-based sport if they stop enjoying themselves.”One possible approach to keep Australian children engaged in sport is the Playing for Life philosophy, which is based on the concept of game play and uses games rather than traditional drill training to promote sports participation.The Playing For Life philosophy was developed by the Australian Sports Commission (ASC) as a means to engage children of all abilities in junior sports and to provide positive sporting experiences. Touch Football Australia (TFA) has partnered with the ASC, through its Active After School Communities (AASC) program, to provide children with an introductory Touch Football program. The Playing for Life – Touch Football coaching manual consists of seven sequential, game-based lessons suitable for primary school-aged children of all abilities. The lessons are designed to assist people with minimal experience in Touch Football, to deliver fun, inclusive games in line with the Playing for Life philosophy.Playing for Life is an approach to coaching that uses games rather than drills to introduce the skills and tactics of a particular sport, or structured physical activity, being delivered. Each session is designed purposefully, so that the games progressively introduce and develop a particular skill that is the focus of the session. The emphasis is on providing safe, fun, engaging activities that ensure maximum participation from all children, regardless of their level of ability.The Playing for Life – Touch Football resource has also been designed to strengthen the link between school and community participation, supporting the AASC program as a link in the junior participation pathway. To view the Playing for Life – Touch Football coaching manual, please click on the attachment below.The Minister has also released new research that validates the Playing For Life philosophy with children aged from five to 12, with Playing for Life to be effective at creating fun and inclusive environments for sport participation.The Children’s Market Segmentation and the Playing For Life validation research are complementary tools that can help sports understand and better retain children within their affiliates (clubs).The research follows on from the Adult Market Segmentation study released earlier this year. Both are key parts of the ASC’s leadership role in guiding sport through the provision of evidence-based support, tools and investment to increase participation.More information regarding the Children’s Market Segmentation and Playing For Life research is available at ausport.gov.au.Related Filesplay_for_life_-_touch_football_02-pdfRelated LinksPlaying For Lifelast_img read more

first_img Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. January 20, 2010 Free Workshop | August 28: Get Better Engagement and Build Trust With Customers Now 4 min read This hands-on workshop will give you the tools to authentically connect with an increasingly skeptical online audience. According to a recent study by comScore, the number of people in the U.S. using multipurpose smartphones such as iPhones, Blackberries, and Droids more than doubled last year. Of those who used mobile devices to access news and information on the Internet, 22.5 million–or 35 percent of the total–did so on a daily basis.And this year, that number is expected to skyrocket even further as more companies–T-mobile, AT&T, Spring, Garmin, and even Google–gear up to release their own Android-supported mobile devices. In fact, experts predict that mobile Web usage will overtake PC usage in five years.The online tools people are using to find and share information with their mobile devices are changing, too. The comScore study shows that the number of people who used smartphones to access a social networking site or blog increased by 427 percent last year, more than any other category.So what does this mean for you?If you want to put your business in front of this exploding online population, then you need to know how they use their mobile devices to access and share information online. You need to know the community sites where they hang out, and understand how they communicate with one another if you want to engage them and build lasting relationships.Smartphone users are looking for genuine, trustworthy information–recommendations, reviews, rated answers to questions–and they’re already geniuses when it comes to filtering out and ignoring inauthentic voices.Here are five important things you need to do to ensure your business is primed to take advantage of the mobile media storm:1. Make sure your website is mobile-friendlyMobile users are impatient people. They want information and they want it now. You have to make sure your website delivers that information in a way that’s useful for them. Fortunately, there are a number of ways to create a quick mobile version of your website. If you use WordPress, there are plugins like this one that can help you create a mobile-friendly edition. Or you can use a paid converter such as MoFuse and MOBIFY to do the job.2. Make sure your website is optimized for mobile searchDid you know that both Google and Bing have separate indexes for mobile content? And right now, they return far fewer–and far more localized–results than regular search. So the sooner you get your site optimized to rank well in the search results, the sooner you can put your site in front of the hundreds of millions of mobile device users.3. Start a Facebook Fan page Because so many mobile device users are active on Facebook, the world’s top social networking site, it only makes sense to have a presence there. Encourage your customers and visitors to sign up as Facebook fans so you can use the networking site to keep in touch with them and share information about your business.4. Become involved in TwitterThe same logic applies here–Twitter is one of the fastest-growing properties on the Web because it’s so easy for people with smartphones to use for accessing and sharing information. If you start building relationships with your visitors and customers via Twitter now, you will be light years ahead of the competition when the smartphone explosion really hits its stride.5. Make sure you’re listed on Google Maps A huge and growing number of mobile users go to Google Maps first when searching for a local business. You can make sure your site conforms to Google’s quality guidelines here .6. Encourage customers to review your business on Yelp or FourSquare Yelp is a business review site that has active users in cities all over the world. More than 26 million people a month use Yelp to find information about more than twenty different categories of businesses. FourSquare is somewhat similar in nature. Its members use FourSquare to keep one another informed of their whereabouts. You can also write reviews and recommend places to fellow FourSquare members.You may think you’re not at the right place to start thinking about mobile marketing yet. But no matter where you are in your business building efforts, the time to start laying the foundation for an effective mobile marketing strategy is now. The mobile revolution is happening right now, and if online marketing has taught us anything, it’s that the way to be successful is to put your business where the customers are. And that means reaching them on their smartphones. Enroll Now for Freelast_img read more
