Leonie also added that the nurse mentioned about his change in the breathing during the tense super over. She added:Advertisement “You know, I think Jimmy Neesham had just hit that six and he took his last breath,” she told Stuff.co.nz. “He has a quirky sense of humour and he was a real character and he would have loved the fact that he did that.”“It was lovely, you know, he’s kept in touch with Jimmy and he is friends with Jimmy’s father. He always had a soft spot for Jimmy Neesham, he was very proud of him. He would definitely be following his career.”Advertisement Jimmy Neesham also posted a tweet for his childhood coach where he thanked his beloved coach.

Galway Triathlon Club – Supporting the Community

first_imgGalway Triathlon Club (GTC) recently held another successful Aquathon Series which involved six weekly 750m Swim and 5km run events. In total, over 70 members from GTC, Predator Tri Club and Tri Sport took part. As part of engaging with the community, GTC agreed that any funds generated through the Aquathon Series fee would be donated to support the Octopus Swimming Club.Octopus Swimming Club, which was founded in 1981 and based in Kilcornan, Galway, is no ordinary swimming club. It operates using the ‘Halliwick’ concept, which is suitable for all and is particularly suited to people with disabilities – be it spinal cord, amputee, head injury, stroke, spina-bifida, cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, visual impairment and also people who are fearful of water – to become “water free”.Mary Arrigan, the founder, explains that “If somebody is in a wheelchair all day, it is great to see their reaction when you put them in water and see their body move and be free. When they start, we teach them to become balanced in the water and to have good breath control so they become relaxed. And when somebody is completely relaxed, they can float and eventually they can move and swim.” The club, which has over forty members ranging in age from 8 to 74 are extremely grateful of the support from Galway Triathlon Club.The Galway Triathlon Committee identified the connection between the clubs with both clubs promoting physical activity through a strong emphasis on swimming, and also social connections. Like GTC members, the members of the Octopus Swimming Club are extremely positive and determined in taking on new challenges.print WhatsApp Facebook Twitter Email Pictured is David Kennedy (Octopus Swimming Club) receiving the donation from Karl Prendergast (Galway Tri Club Committee).

How To Turn Your iPhone into a Wi-Fi Hotspot

first_imgTags:#Apple#How To#mobile#web 6 Best Video Conferencing Services for Small Bu… Feel like hacking your phone today? If you’ve got about 10 minutes to spare, you can turn your iPhone into a Wi-Fi hotspot using a combination of the latest “jailbreaking” software and an app called MyWi. The app takes your iPhone’s 3G data connection and shares it out so other computers can connect to it as if it’s just another Wi-Fi network. You can even share your 3G connection with your iPad, if you’d like. Before You Get Started…A few caveats:Jailbreaking, the process of opening up your phone to allow for the installation of unapproved 3rd-party applications, voids the warranty on your phone. If you’re a stickler for these types of things, this may not be the hack for you. (If you really want a phone that functions as a Wi-Fi hotspot, maybe you should wait for the Evo instead.)That said, jailbreaking is reversible in the sense that you can always return your phone to factory settings then reapply your backup and no one will be the wiser. Your iPhone is automatically backed up every time you sync with iTunes, but you may want to double-check that your contacts, photos, calendar items and any other critical information is safely stored somewhere else…just in case. The MyWi app is buggy. Really, really buggy. Upon first launch, it crashed repeatedly in our tests. The issue seems to be with the “Rock You” sign-in/registration process. But I got it working and you may be able to as well. In fact, it’s the crashing problem that makes the entire setup process take so long – not the jailbreak itself. That’s downright speedy. MyWi isn’t free, but comes with a trial period (thank goodness!). The app costs $9.99 when you’re ready to purchase. How ToTurn Your iPhone Into A Wi-Fi Hotspot Related Posts The first step is to jailbreak your phone. If you’ve never done this before, you can follow our guide here for the iPad – it’s the exact same procedure, from start to finish. For those who are familiar with jailbreaking and just need the software, go here: spiritjb.com. Once your jailbroken phone is up-and-running, launch the Cydia application store. In Cydia, search for “MyWi.” There are two apps listed, but the one that says “No Rock” next to it never installed for us. Grab the other one instead. Tap on the search result for the app, tap the “install” button in the upper-right corner, then tap “confirm.” When installation is complete, tap the “Reload SpringBoard” button. (If this part gets stuck, just reboot your iPhone). Launch the MyWi app. Accept the agreement and tap “OK.” Now comes the tricky part. In our tests, the app would barely stay open for more than a couple of seconds at this point. In fact, we were about to write it off as a total loss. But after a bit of perseverance, we got it working. It appeared as if the problem was with registering for a RockYourPhone account via the app. (RockYourPhone is a paid application store for jailbroken phones where MyWi is sold.)Instead of registering for an account via the app, we went to RockYourPhone.com and signed up there instead. Before returning to the app, we copied our registration email address to the clipboard so we could quickly paste it in instead of typing it in.Re-launch MyWi. Tap “sign in.” Paste in your email, type in your password. The app will check for your registration (and probably crash again). The app will check for license updates and then allow you to use it on the “trial” license. If you can’t get past this step because the app continues to crash, we’re sorry. We can’t help you. Like we said, the app is buggy. You may be able to get it going, but we’ll make no promises. Hopefully, a future version will be more stable.Assuming you do get the app to (finally!) launch, you’ll see the option to turn Wi-Fi Tethering on via a toggle switch at the top. You can also turn on USB and Bluetooth tethering using the toggle towards the bottom. With tethering on, your phone’s Internet connection, 3G or otherwise, is made available as a Wi-Fi hotspot to nearby computers. You can even use WEP security if you’d like. When you’re finished, you can switch tethering off and close the app. Note: Problems Sharing 3G?If you run into problems with MyWi not being able to share your 3G data connection, a simple reset of your network settings may resolve the issue. Go into the Settings app -> General -> Reset -> Reset Network Settings. Reboot the phone and try MyWi again.

With Geoffrey Boycott at the crease we are winners

first_imgShare on Twitter Since you’re here… Radio Cricket Sign up to the Spin – our weekly cricket round-up As we view the wreckage of the Ashes series (No escaping the awful truth, Sport, 19 December), can I return to your critique of Geoffrey Boycott? Matthew Engel dismisses him as an irrelevance and claims “I think we’ve all heard enough” (9 December).This indicates a profound misunderstanding of radio and how its audience listens. Boycott was a fine batsman, no doubt a really difficult man, but undoubtedly a great broadcaster. That’s because he has that extraordinary ability to connect the listener, the person who has never played professional cricket, to the mystery of international sport.

10 months agoKoeman: Liverpool defender Van Dijk can take criticism; that’s why he’s so good

first_imgKoeman: Liverpool defender Van Dijk can take criticism; that’s why he’s so goodby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveHolland coach Ronald Koeman says Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk’s willingness to take on criticism will see him continue to improve.Koeman signed Van Dijk for Southampton and made him his Oranje captain this season.He told De Telegraaf: “We have a history with eachother. That is easier for me. When I became a national coach, I knew who Virgil van Dijk was. “I did not know how Matthijs de Ligt was as a person. Ah, sometimes Virgil estimates situations too easily. I’m trying to change that. If that succeeds, he will really be the best in the world.”He also knows how I am. That is why I can criticise. Virgil does not think: oh, dear, I’m being hammered. And yet I think afterwards that I should not have openly criticised him. Sometimes, as a coach, I have to protect players a bit more. I know that this is not necessary in his case.”There is respect from me to him. What I did after that match (against France), I cannot do with everyone. It was nice that later in the season he caused a penalty at Liverpool against Manchester City and the next day with the Dutch National Team he joked about that moment when he greeted our entire staff. He thought, if I do not start it myself, I will cop it from the coach … He is a top fella. He is anchored and very critical of himself.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more
