FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail Advertisements Job Walters, father of current World Boxing Association (WBA) Featherweight Champion, Nicholas Walters, has called on fathers to guide and nurture the development of their children.Mr. Walters said he had stood by his son through hard times and helped him to become a world champion.“Fathers, stand up strong for your kids. I am a dad here, feeling proud, it should be more fathers-it should be more dads out there, should give the testimony like what I can say right now,” he said while speaking at a civic ceremony held on Thursday, January 17 in Sam Sharpe Square, Montego Bay, where the champion was honoured by the St. James Parish Council, and presented with the Key to the City of Montego Bay.“It is not easy. We all leave it on mom, parents and – what happen to the dads? I did it out of nothing, pressure catch me so much, I am coming from the lowest level, but I stood there, and I said ‘boy we got to get there,” said the senior Mr. Walters who also coaches his son.Minister without Portfolio in the Office of the Prime Minister with Responsibility for Sports, Hon. Natalie Neita-Headley, who was the guest speaker at the ceremony, told JIS News that she was moved by Mr. Walters’ commitment and guidance. She other fathers should exemplify that dedication to fatherhood and help their children to be as successful as possible.“The Parenting Commission should be looking at someone like Job Walters to spread the kind of word to ensure that other fathers recognize the importance of having that kind of guidance and leadership from a parent, especially a father. Females do need their fathers, but the kind of marginalised situation that we have seen with our young boys, we believe that if we had far more active fathers in would reduce the kind of criminal and anti-social behavior that we are experiencing,” she stated.Meanwhile, head of the Police Area One Division, Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP), Devon Watkis, said with fathers like Job Walters, the police’s efforts to reduce crime will less difficult. “I want to be aligned with that statement, (that) the father role in a child’s life is important especially in the life of the male child,” he said, and encouraged all Jamaican men to ensure that they play an integral role in their children’s lives.

Hot bats lead Minnesota to midweek winAshley GoetzApril 14, 2009Jump to CommentsShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare via EmailPrintEntering Tuesday, the Minnesota baseball team was 1-6 in midweek games. It had suffered two losses each to Texas-Arlington and Northern Iowa and a 6-2 defeat at the hands of Hawaii. The lone win was last week against Missouri, but the Tigers drubbed the Gophers 20-5 the next day. Call this a step in the right direction. Minnesota (21-10 overall, 6-2 Big Ten) cruised past Wisconsin-Milwaukee (12-18 overall, 6-3 Horizon) 12-2 Tuesday afternoon at Siebert Field for its second midweek win of the season and fourth straight win after a weekend sweep of Northwestern. The Gophers have an opportunity to make it five straight today when they host South Dakota State at 3:05 p.m. at Siebert. âÄúItâÄôs big to get that first midweek win because it sets the tone for the rest of the week,âÄù sophomore reliever Luke Rasmussen, who tossed 3 2/3 scoreless innings Tuesday to pick up his second win of the season , said. âÄúBats were swung real well today and we played all three phases of the game real well.âÄù Minnesota immediately jumped on PanthersâÄô starter Cuyler FranzkeâÄôs looping curveball, which broke hard but was hanging up in the strike zone. After Derek McCallum sent an off-speed pitch towering over the scoreboard in right center in the bottom of the 1st for his team-leading fifth home run, Franzke abandoned his breaking ball almost completely. Franzke would leave the game after giving up five runs on eight hits in just three innings. But it was a day where it really didnâÄôt matter what pitcher Wisconsin-Milwaukee put on the mound. The Gophers were going to hit him âÄì especially McCallum. The junior second baseman followed his home run with an RBI single and a bases loaded triple, but his day would end a double short of the cycle. Sophomore Drew Hanish pinch hit for McCallum in the bottom of the 7th, leaving McCallumâÄôs line at 3-for-4 with a single, triple home run and six RBIs. âÄúEveryone had a good day today,âÄù McCallum said. He wasnâÄôt kidding. Matt Nohelty was 2-for-5 with two runs; AJ Pettersen 3-for-5 and 2 RBIs; Michael Kvasnicka and Justin Gominsky 3-for-4; Kyle Geason 2-for-3. Minnesota was equally impressive on the mound. Junior Allen Bechstein, whoâÄôs struggled in the limited action heâÄôs seen this season, pitched a season high four innings, allowing two earned runs on six hits and striking out two. âÄúI thought Allen Bechstein did a nice job of pitching himself out of some trouble,âÄù Anderson said. âÄúHe still has a little bit of trouble finishing off some hitters, so heâÄôs still trying to learn [to do that] but he did pitch effectively and kept the game in balance.âÄù Rasmussen and senior Tyler Oakes stymied Wisconsin-Milwaukee in the remaining five innings. Oakes needed just 15 pitches to retire the four batters he faced in his 1 1/3 inning of work. Now the question becomes whether the Gophers can string together two days of strong midweek pitching. Today marks the third time this season that Minnesota has played back-to-back midweek games, and the story has been the same each time âÄì respectable pitching in game one, atrocious pitching in game two. Texas-Arlington scored 12 runs in the second weekday matchup. Missouri scored 20. A lot hinges on control. Dustin Klabunde, who a week ago walked five and hit a batter in 1 2/3 innings , will start against South Dakota State. Naturally, finding the strike zone will be the top priority. âÄúI have no problem if they hit the ball off us but letâÄôs go out there and challenge them with our best stuff and make them beat us by swinging the bat,âÄù Anderson said after TuesdayâÄôs game. âÄúThatâÄôs what IâÄôd like to see out of Dustin tomorrow; IâÄôd like to see him go out there and attack the strike zone and get beat with his best stuff if heâÄôs going to get beat and not walk the ballpark.âÄù
Saelig a stocking distributor of RF & Microwave test equipment has announced the availability of modular, cost effective, USB-connected portable, signal sources. The VSG2G1 and VSG6G1 RF Vector Signal Generators can generate frequencies up to 2.2 GHz and 6.2 GHz respectively. These pocket size signal generators provide features and functions comparable to full-size analog RF signal generators, offering frequency sweep, frequency hopping using I&Q modulation, and arbitrary signal generation.The compact signal sources can generate most RF signal modulations that RF engineers might need, since the VSGxG1’s many test functions can be customized to meet the needs of proprietary and other nonstandard wireless protocols. Both of the VSGxG1 models are ideal for field test situations since they are compact, convenient, and can be configured to operate without a connected PC. They can also operate in ATE systems as a signal source module, simulating many different RF systems for test purposes.With output levels up to 10 dBm (Band 0&1) signals can be delivered in CW, sweeping, and hopping modes. The units feature a built-in pulse generator for creating pulse modulation. The arbitrary function generator adds to the ability to generate a wide range of modulation modes, such as: I&Q modulation, AM, PM, FM analog, FSK, ASK, PSK, MSK, GMSK, SFSK, as well as digital modulation schemes such as QPSK, 8PSK, QAM, and phase modulation types such as CDMA, TMDA, GSM and more. A reference clock input and output is provided.Power is delivered via the USB connection, or an external battery pack can be used for standalone portable operation. These signal generators are housed in a light (3oz) metal case that measures 4” x 1” x 1”. They are available with N connectors, while the I&Q connector provides I&Q input and output. A pulse output is available at the rear of the unit for synchronization purposes or when using the device as pulse generator. Intuitive PC software provided displays a simple desktop instrument front panel for adjustments and setup.The VSGxG1 RF Vector Signal Generators are available now from Saelig Company, Inc. Fairport, NY, Triarchy’s authorized US distributor.There are over 50 USB Signal Generators from 9 Manufacturers listed on everything RF. See all USB Signal Generators here.
