Handel Lamey, new boss of ASAJ

first_imgHandel Lamey, a member of the Tornadoes Swim Club, is the new president of the Amateur Swimming Association of Jamaica (ASAJ). Lamey defeated outgoing president Martin Lyn 22 votes to 20 at the recent annual general meeting of the association. A new executive has taken over the reins of the association for the period 2015-2017. Tornadoes club’s head coach, Wendy Lee, defeated vice-president for swimming, Allan-Roy Marsh, 22-14 while Nadav Goren received just votes. The new Secretary is Adrian Lyn, who defeated Lavinia McClure 32-10. Uncontested positions were: vice president for water polo – Lance Rochester; vice president for synchronised swimming – Sharon Smith; treasurer – Florence Williams and assistant secretary/treasurer – Paul Campbell. In expressing his appreciation to the swimming fraternity for depositing the confidence and support in the new ASAJ executive incoming president Lamey said he’s ready to take on the challenge of getting aquatics on the front burner. “I look forward to working with the new team in having the discipline of aquatics receive more attention. The establishment of the foundation of the strategic business plan for the sport is also critical to the development of aquatics in Jamaica going forward, and this has to be a shared objective of all stakeholders. We therefore encourage all stakeholders and members to participate at all levels to ensure that these objectives are met,” Lamey said. The new president noted that one of the primary objectives of his executive will be to ensure that Jamaican swimmers qualify and have an opportunity to participate in the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. He noted that there are senior swimmers who are close to achieving the qualifying time standards for the 2016 Olympics, and the ASAJ will seek to provide the opportunities for them to participate in the approved qualifying meets based on the window that is still left for qualification.last_img read more

Check these out.The Best Explanation of Dual (Native) ISO We’ve Seen YetIncrease Your Production Values with Simple Costume DesignPre-Production Tips: The Basics of Breaking Down a ScriptThe 5 Tenets of Capturing Good B-Roll for Your DocumentaryLens Tips: Doing the Work of Four Lenses with Two We rounded up some of the best YouTube channels every filmmaker should be following for inspiration and technical know-how in 2019.Before we get to the list, let’s acknowledge the elephant in the room. Film Riot, Peter McKinnon, and . . . I guess . . . Philip Bloom(?) are nowhere on this list. Yes, they all have big, creative, popular YouTube channels. But while they have millions of subscribers, this list is about some of the smaller channels that are just as good — if not better. So, without further ado, here are my personal favorite channels of 2019.1. Deity MicrophonesOne of the more recent channels on the scene, Deity Microphones should be your go-to channel for all things audio. Whether you’re a one-man band setting up lavs, booms, and audio recorders yourself or whether you’re hired to run audio or grip for a production, these videos will adequately prepare you. Aputure recently bought Deity, and the quality of the videos and products is similar. The channel helps creators understand how to capture audio effectively — while going easy on the budget.Subscribe here.2. Indy Mogul (Welcome Back!)Speaking of Aputure, Ted Sim recently made the leap to head the Indy Mogul channel. After a two-year hiatus, the once-legendary tutorial machine is back and better than ever. Their output has been quite impressive lately — they seem to outdo themselves with each upload.Subscribe here.3. CookeOpticsTVCookeOpticsTV is an underrated channel that is doing something nobody else is right now. The videos take the best cinematographers in the world and showcase their work through interviews and shot breakdowns. What better source for inspiration and information from than the people shooting your favorite movies?In the video above, Bradford Young discusses how and why he uses certain lenses for certain scenes. This video is a good example of how the whole channel operates, bridging the gap between the Oscar winners and us.Subscribe here.4. Potato JetStraying from the traditional tutorial model, Potato Jet is more of a review channel. Anytime a new camera gets announced, you’ll most likely see a review (or several) here. The content ranges from storytime to full-blown technical breakdowns. It’s a perfect channel for anybody thinking about buying new gear.Subscribe here.5. Shutterstock TutorialsFull disclosure: I work on this channel. So yes, I’m a little biased, but that’s because I’m super proud of what we’re making! The channel is home to all facets of video production and editing. Whether it’s giving away free assets every other week or showing you how to recreate iconic film looks, the channel is full of production gems. Check it out and let us know what you think in the comments!Subscribe here.6. Sonduck FilmsOne of the bigger motion graphics channels out there, Sonduck Films consistently puts out quality After Effects and Premiere Pro tutorials each week. Even if you’ve never opened After Effects, Josh Noel publishes intro-based tutorials that make his information approachable. Whether you’re in the business of editing corporate videos, weddings, or documentaries, these tutorials will improve the production value of every video you work on from here on out.Subscribe here.7. Grip TipsFor anybody already working on set — or hoping to — this channel is for you. Covering all things grip-/gaffer-/PA-/lighting-related, this channel is as simple as it gets — but the information is timeless. I originally found this channel because I was looking for videos about Duvetyne and found this. (Also, if you can make an entertaining video about Duvetyne, you have my subscription.)Subscribe here.8. The Film LookThe Film Look will save us all. Operating with under 22k subscribers, The Film Look is without a doubt one of YouTube’s best kept secrets — especially within the filmmaking community. Covering all aspects of production from planning a shoot to exporting your video in Premiere, their content often includes film theory and production walk-throughs. (Once you’ve watched the video above, go check out their “5 Different Camera Rigs in 1 for $500.”) Think of this channel as the best DIY friend you’ll ever have.Subscribe here.9. FilmmakerIQThe true hero of YouTube right now. No flash, no flare. Just getting down to hard facts. No matter where you are in your filmmaking journey, this channel is constantly releasing in-depth, informative content. Take this breakdown of dual ISO for example. Our very own Todd Blankenship covered this video and explains why content like this is so important.Subscribe here.10. YCImaging — One Man Band ShootersEasily one of the most reliable and consist creators on the platform, YC Imaging is still producing solid, actionable content with no other intent than to teach his subscribers how to be better filmmakers. Often hosting videos on how to be the most efficient solo-shooter possible, the channel’s quality has only gotten better as its host, Chrystopher Rhodes, continues to master his craft. And he shows no signs of slowing down.Subscribe here.11. PremiumBeatI know, I know. Of course we had to plug our own YouTube channel — we’re super proud of it!

If There Is Information Parity, It’s Your Fault

This eBook will help you Seize Your Sales Destiny, with or without a manager. Download Now There’s so much written now about how the imbalance of power between buyer and seller in the past was due to the fact that the seller had more information. Allegedly, because of the free flow of information on the Internet, your clients are now equal when it comes to information. You are to assume that they have equal knowledge—or maybe even more.Hogwash!If your clients or prospects know as much about what you sell as you do, it’s your own damn fault. It also means you aren’t worth buying from.Subject Matter ExpertWho is supposed to be the subject matter expert when it comes to what you sell and the outcomes that you produce?In the old days, the imbalance of knowledge was an imbalance of power. Because you knew more, you could use that information to your advantage as a salesperson. Today, if your on the losing end of an imbalance when it comes to subject matter expertise and knowledge, you’re useless to your clients and your dream clients (prospects).Why on earth would you know so little that your clients know as much as you? Think this through for a minute.Your client works only for their company. Their only experience with whatever it is you sell is through that lens. You, on the other hand, work with many clients. You have the knowledge and the experience of making whatever it is you sell work in dozens—maybe hundreds—of companies.Your client makes the decision to buy what you sell maybe once a year. Some buy what you sell once every three or more years. You help dozens and dozens of companies make the decision to buy, and you help them produce results. Which of you should know more?They Think You’re Supposed to Have KnowledgeIf you want to be a strategic asset for your clients you’ll need to help them see around corners. If you want to be a trusted advisor, then you’ll need to be someone with the deep situational knowledge and subject matter expertise to be able to offer advise worth taking.My experience tells me that many salespeople do have much, much more knowledge and that there is still a huge imbalance—as it should be. When I speak with clients they explain that they are too busy trying to keep up with the changes in their own industry to study a second industry. That’s why they’re careful in how they select salespeople; they’re not hiring a salesperson but are instead adding someone to their management team.You’re supposed to have more knowledge than your clients about what you sell. If you don’t, you’re letting them down.QuestionsAre you a subject matter expert in your industry?If there is an imbalance when it comes to information, is it in your favor of your client’s?Why is it imperative that you know more than your clients?How does your outsized knowledge benefit your clients?last_img read more

Reports Michael Vick Maintains His Starting Job

Reports Michael Vick Maintains His Starting Job

Michael Vick will not be supplanted from his starting job as Philadelphia Eagles quarterback, although it was a serious consideration, according to multiple reports.Coach Andy Reid makes the decision on that position, and he likely will stay with the four-time Pro Bowler over rookie Nick Foles, who is unproven.The Eagles are 3-4, and Vick has been part of the Philly problems, which are not limited to Vick.Reid didn’t endorse Vick after Sunday’s 30-17 loss to Atlanta, saying he’s going to evaluate all his starters. Vick then said he would support whatever decision Reid makes, which was different from saying he deserves to be replaced.The Eagles’ headquarters was closed Monday because of  superstorm Sandy, and there was no media availability.Reid has changed his mind on his starting quarterbacks in a 24-hour period before, reversing his call on Kevin Kolb  and replacing him with Vick in 2010. It’s unlikely he would do it again and give Foles his first NFL snap on the road in a Monday night game against New Orleans (2-5) next week.Foles, a third-round pick out of Arizona, had an outstanding preseason. However, he did so playing against backups, third-stringers and guys who didn’t make a roster. Foles impressed coaches and teammates, and fans have been calling for him to start since Week 1.Simply, Vick wasn’t the problem against the Falcons. He did not turn the ball over and he does not play defense. Under new coordinator Todd Bowles, the Eagles allowed scores on Atlanta’s first six possessions, including touchdowns on the first three.As for the offense, injuries to All-Pro left tackle Jason Peters and center Jason Kelcehave crippled the unit. Vick hasn’t had much time to throw and gets hit often. Playcalling isn’t helping, either. Reid and offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg have underused All-Pro running back LeSean McCoy in the past three losses.Vick led Philadelphia to comeback wins with go-ahead touchdowns on its final drive the first two games of the season. But he’s been inconsistent and turnover-prone overall. Vick has just a 78.6 passer rating, his lowest since joining the Eagles. He’s coming off a rare turnover-free performance after throwing eight interceptions and losing five fumbles in the first six games.Benching Vick and turning the offense over to Foles could be a way to shake things up. It also could be interpreted as giving up on the season. read more

The man’s identity has been withheld by police until next of kin is informed.Magnetic Media is told that the man is a 47-year-old resident of Five Cays who is originally from Haiti, but has been resident of these islands for a number of years. The shooting occurred in an area known as the “Residence,” and the victim was reportedly shot multiple times. Police have made appeals to anyone who was in the area between 8:30 and 9pm to report any activity to the police, no matter how insignificant it may seem.
