first_imgThe College GameDay crew in Columbus Ohio.ESPN College GameDayCollege GameDay has struggled this season to get relevant celebrity guest pickers. That was apparent against on Saturday afternoon.ESPN’s flagship college football show is down at UCF, and to be honest, it’s been an incredible scene. Fans brought hundreds of signs and the energy has been fantastic. But we’re still scratching our heads regarding the guest picker.ESPN just announced that talk show host Maury Povich is the guest picker. College football fans are miffed.Povich was born in Washington D.C. and attended UPenn. It doesn’t seem like he has any tie to UCF – at least not that we know of.Twitter erupted when Povich was announced. It seems that most are not thrilled with the pick.Maury Povich as Guest Picker?And the results determined @CollegeGameDay whiffs again!!!!!!!!!!!! pic.twitter.com/GkacUY01o3— NCAAF Nation (@NCAAFNation247) November 17, 2018Whose idea was Maury Povich? Why not have Donald Duck pick using that inimitable voice? The Oregon pick alone would be worth it.— Medium Happy (@jdubs88) November 17, 2018Maury Povich? Really? That tops it… Screw you, @ESPN. You come to Orlando and disrespect #UCF with Maury Povich as the guest picker. Makes me so angry. 3 hours of backhanded compliments. #CollegeGameDay sucks.— Derek J. LaRiviere (@DerekJLaRiviere) November 17, 2018@ESPNCFB really!? Maury Povich…That’s really beneath you isn’t it!?Are you gonna have someone come out and surprise one of your panelists,i won’t be watching the picks off goes your channel.We all know coach will pick UCF.He’d be run out of town otherwiseBS guest picker— Michael Jackson (@Mjcrjdrvrsoonrf) November 17, 2018It’s been a weird year for College GameDay. We imagine next week should be a good episode though – since it’s likely headed to either Ohio State vs. Michigan or Oklahoma vs. West Virginia.last_img read more

Greater cooperation among developing nations vital to fighting poverty – Ban

“The more developing countries can share lessons about what works, from micro-finance to cash transfer programmes, the more we can advance,” Mr. Ban said in a message to the Global South-South Development Expo in Geneva, delivered on his behalf by Juan Somavia, the Director-General of the United Nations International Labour Organization (ILO).“Countries across the global south have created jobs and freed millions of people from poverty through home-grown solutions or by drawing on the innovations of others. The South is a font of ideas and actions that are helping to tackle the major challenges of our day,” the Secretary-General told participants of the Expo.An estimated 1.75 billion people in more than 100 countries still live in extreme poverty, Mr. Ban said, citing the Multidimensional Poverty Index, a new poverty indicator launched earlier this year by the Oxford Poverty and Human Development Initiative of Oxford University and the UN Development Programme (UNDP).He said the Global South-South Development Expo is a valuable opportunity to share information, generate new initiatives, showcase technologies and explore what can be done to achieve a greener and more prosperous future.“The United Nations stands with you in this effort, including through the presence of many of our agencies at this Expo,” he added.Organized by the UN every year since 2008, the Expo provides a forum to enable developing countries and their development partners, including donor agencies, organizations of the UN system, and private sector and civil society organizations, to showcase their evidence-based South-South development solutions.Solution forums include social protection and decent work, food security, climate change and environment, HIV/AIDS, global health, and education. This year’s Expo will focus on enhancing the strategic capacity of developing countries in research and technology development, and will develop inter-regional partnerships in each of its core topic areas. 22 November 2010Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon today urged greater economic cooperation and exchange of ideas among developing countries to boost efforts to alleviate poverty, saying that millions of people are still unable to meet their basic needs despite the rapid economic growth in some emerging economies. read more

← Previous Story VIDEO: Handball Peter Pan magic! Next Story → Ambros Martin to lead Romanian girls! Telekom Veszprem  celebrated fourth win in SEHA GAZPROM League 2016/2017 by beating Slovenian RK Celje Pivovarna Lasko, once again, 32:25 (17:13). Despite visitors at „Veszprem Arena“ were eager to show the best of their handball, home team coached by Xavi Sabate had control over the result from the first minute of the match. The first line-up of the reigning SEHA GAZPROM champions with Ilic, Palmarsson and Nagy supported by oustanding Roland Mikler (15 saves) between the posts made 6:1 in the opening seven minutes of the match.Celje’s coach Branko Tamse found the way to put his team back in the game, but even solid performance of Zarabec, Mlakar and Lesjak on the goal line, wasn’t enough for some surprising turnover. Slovenians came closer on 9:7 in 15th minute, but they aren’t able to save their net in the crucial moments.Dragan Gajic and Renato Sulic overtook the main roles in Veszprem’s attack in the second half from Aron Palmarsson and Gasper Marguc. Creativity of Celje’s attack was visible until 45th minute, when Miha Zarabec netted for 24:21. However, Slovenian team had no power to finish match in the same rhytm. Some technical mistakes gave chance to home team to score some easy goals via young left wing Fekete for 32:25 at the end.Dragan Gajic was TOP scorer in the winning team with six goals, while one more scored Celje’s right back Ziga Mlakar.Statements after the match:Xavi Sabate, Telekom Veszprem coach:– I want to congratulate to our players and team for such a good match after only one training which we had to prepare for this game. I would also like to congratulate to Celje for very good start of the season – results and way of playing. Celje play very good handball, they have one of the best fast-breaks in Europe. We had some injuries during last week. Terzic couldn’t play today and he is very important for us in defense. Players showed commitment with the team, club, team-mates and supporters. We played high-level match in defense and Mikler was amazing one more time. Key for success was in defense, with good Roli and fast-breaks. We played good in attack, especially with all our line-players. I am proud of our players. We are working very hard with young Hungarian players. Young Fekete was fantastic today. They have to continue working as this season is very important for us.Branko Tamse, RK Celje Pivovarna Lasko coach:-I want to congratulate Veszprem for a good match.They were prepared well for us. Their defense forced us to take some difficult shots and to make some mistakes in attack. There were some minutes when I was happy for the way how we play, but tonight Veszprem had a lot of good minutes.RK Celje Pivovarna Lasko player:– I would like to congratulate Veszprem on a good game. We haven’t been on the level which we should to play with them. Our defense wasn’t good enough, while in attack we missed too many open shots. Mikler saved many shots and then, with counter-attack, they made advantage.Gasper Marguc, Telekom Veszprem right wing:– My coach already said a lot. I agree with all speakers, we played good today, especially in defense. Mikler was really good, we ran a lot of fast-breaks. We are happy that we had match under control. We are happy for new points. Now, we are focusing on weekend and match in Plock. RK Celje Pivovarna LaskoRoland Miklerseha gazprom leagueTelekom Veszprem read more
