Who’s gonna fight together with me as Team Tenshin?See you at RIZIN. #TeamTenshin#RIZIN14#Cygames#mayweathertenshin— 那須川 天心 (@TeppenTenshin) November 5, 2018Nasukawa won the world junior karate championship when he was a fifth grader and shifted to kickboxing a year later, according to his official website.ADVERTISEMENT Despite his tender age, he published a biography last year entitled “Kakusei”, meaning “Awakening”.However, both he and Mayweather have reportedly received some online mockery for the unusual cross-code fight.According to US sports celebrity website TMZ Sports, US rapper 50 cent said that Nasukawa looked like an “Uber driver”.And in a foul-mouthed tirade on his Instagram account, Irish mixed martial arts fighter Conor McGregor, who lost to Mayweather in the American’s last fight in August 2017, said: “Who’s this little prick next to you.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next He made his professional kickboxing debut at the age of 16 and became bantamweight oriental rules world champion a year later.Promoters RIZIN said that Nasukawa — or “Ninja Boy” as they dubbed him — had “become one of the most popular fighters in Japan, and perhaps the best combat sports prospect the country has ever seen.”There are still no details as to under what rules the fight will be held — whether kicks will be allowed, for example — but Nasukawa claimed after the bout was announced he had “a punch that boxers don’t have”.“I don’t care what the rules are. I want to be the man who changes history. I’ll do that with these fists, with one punch — just watch,” said Nasukawa.‘Gym rat’Even Mayweather acknowledged that Nasukawa was “an unbelievable talent”, praising his lithe, “gym rat” physique.“He’s very special, he’s fast, he’s strong. I’m older now and when it comes to experience, I have it on my side. He has youth on his side and he’s going to bring a lot of excitement,” said the 41-year-old American.Nasukawa now weighs 56.8 kilograms and is also giving four inches away in height to Mayweather, who won world titles in five different weight classes.“Our weight class is different, but it means nothing to me,” said Nasukawa.According to his official site, Nasukawa is good with his hands in other areas than punching, saying he is a fan of knitting and sewing — as well as indulging in traditional Japanese “sento” baths.

first_imgDonegal Daily Motoring Columnist Brian McDaid reminisces on just how good F1 once was.Just when you are about to write off this year’s F1 season the penultimate round in Brazil on Sunday last has brought back memories of just how good F1 once was.Maybe it was because the Drivers’ Championship and Constructors’ silverware are respectively in the trophy cabinets of Lewis Hamilton and his Mercedes team that strategies change to that of a passionate type. We finally got real racing, compared to the cat and mouse moves both in qualifying and in race day that seem to have overtaken the sport over the last few seasons. Advertisement And maybe it was just Brazil and the passion that this country has to the sport and its drivers and the teams. Or maybe the 25th anniversary of the death of one of the greatest formula one drivers Ayrton Senna still a native hero in his home Brazil has produced one of the best weekends racing of the entire 2019 championship.The late Ayrton Senna in the Honda powered McLaren which was considered to be one of the most successful F1 racing carsChampion’s mixed yearThe Silver Arrows won the championship with a healthy lead in the points table but both the Mercedes team and their number one driver Lewis Hamilton, now on his 6th World championship title didn’t have things easy on their way to victory. The death of Niki Lauda in June was unsettling for Hamilton. Lauda, a three times champion himself was the biggest factor in bringing Hamilton to Mercedes and was clearly shaken by the Austrian’s passing.Hamilton also had a faster Ferrari to deal with all season and if that wasn’t enough, he has, at the very least, two up and coming world champion contenders in the making snapping at his heels with Max Verstappen and Charles Leclerc. Advertisement Lucozade In the quarter of a century that has past since the death of the great Ayrton Senna, I’ve been thinking how much sponsorship has changed and reshaped Formula 1. In the early 90’s it was Lucazade that was the biggest energy drink of the day and the nearest it got to cars was when the orange wrapping on the old bottle was stuck over headlights in foggy weather to produce a makeshift fog light.The only energy drink before Redbull came along and changed everythingSince then it wasn’t good enough for a company to sponsor teams now they wanted to own them completely. Red Bull bought what originally started out as Stewart Grand Prix which evolved into Jaguar before Red Bull bought the controlling share. In the early days of that racing team it was a Northern Ireland man Gary Anderson who was one of the car designers.Although the like of Redbull in one way for their investment into the sport I do feel that there teams DNA has become very diluted, pardon the pun from what a traditional F1 team once was.If you consider that Redbull have used Costhworth, Ferrari, Renault and Honda engines since it was formed in 2005 it’s not that easy for the purest of motorsport fans to follow and support this sponsor driven team. If you compare them to the likes of Ferrari team it’s a completely different type of supporter and sometimes it’s as much about the car and its heritage as it is about its drivers. Jordan and “Big D”Ireland’s own Eddie Jordan Racing team had more heritage to it than the present day teams have and even became a F1 team when drivers like future world champions like Nigel Mansell and Ayrton Senna and even Michael Schumacher drove for Eddie Jordan and his fledgling team. They made it way up through the ranks, and tracing his career before that, when Eddie Jordan was a racing driver himself, it was Donegal’s Derek Mc Mahon Racing team that Eddie was a part of.Eddie Jordan in the lead in one of Derek Mc Mahon Racing team cars in the seventies.Eddie Jordan would be the first to tell you if it wasn’t for “Big D” in the early days promoting and supporting drivers there might never have been a Jordan F1 Team which had traces of the DNA of that old Derek Mc Mahon Racing Team in is blood from all them years ago.The Late Derek Mc Mahon with one of his drivers, Eddie Jordan who was part of the Derek Mc Mahon Racing team.A card from Eddie Jordan to the Late Derek Mc Mahon affectionally known as “Big D” thanking him for for his help in putting Eddie’s motoring racing career on track.All about the undercut. All this season it has been about the undercut and double stacking which all happened in the pits. Red Bull are on 1. 8 seconds to change a set of four wheels, Hamilton a little longer, when we arrive in the pits unannounced, minus part of his from wing.And the default setting deep within former world champion Vettel tripped again at the weekend when his young team mate Leclerc passed him for position after the restart with the end result of the two Ferrari trying to swap a front and back wheel on both car and both of the team ending up out of the race in the final laps.Vettel and Leclerc on track tyre change battle which came unstuck putting them both out of the race.On the 25th anniversary of the great Ayrton Senna’s death it was Honda that powered the first three cars to the podium at the weekend. When the dust settled the same weekend that Martin Brundle got a chance to drive Senna’s old Honda powered McLaren, the MP4/4 considered to one of the most successful cars in F1 around an emotional home track of that great Brazilian driver.Brundle described how the gear lever on Senna’s Old car was manually connected deep into the gear box as was the throttle cable was manually connected to the turbo, the sound of that V6 turbo going around the track had the fans in tears as memories of that great driver fired up great memories.Happy Motoring folks.DD Motoring: F1 lights up in Brazil was last modified: November 20th, 2019 by Brian McDaidShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_imgJose Mourinho will leave Real Madrid in the summer and is ready to return to Chelsea, The Sun claim.Mourinho is apparently keen to have his old job back but would also want assurances that he would have control without any interference from Blues owner Roman Abramovich.A ‘top source’ close to Mourinho is quoted as saying: “Jose would go back to Chelsea. But before agreeing, he would want things very clear between him and Roman Abramovich.“He would say ‘Roman, you are the owner and I am the boss here. Let’s work together and the power is in our hands’.”John Terry could be stripped of the England captaincy today, according to the Daily Mirror.It is suggested that FA leaders are set to make a decision over whether to allow the Chelsea defender to keep the armband ahead of his July trial for alleged racist abuse of QPR’s Anton Ferdinand, which Terry denies.The Guardian believe there is a growing feeling within the FA that Terry should not remain as skipper.The Mirror say Ferdinand’s brother Rio will not shake Terry’s hand before Chelsea’s match against Manchester United.The Daily Telegraph claim Rio Ferdinand is unsure whether to accept Terry’s handshake.Meanwhile, The Sun report that Andrew Johnson looks close to agreeing a new contract at Fulham.Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

first_imgThe broadcasting deal will take the2010 Fifa World Cup matches straight fromthe pitch to the homes of millions ofAfricans.(Image: Chris Kirchhoff, For more freephotos, visit the image library) All countries across sub Saharan Africawill benefit from the 2010 Fifa broadcast deal.(Image: Wikimedia) Tamara O’ReillyAn agreement by football governing body Fifa and the African Union of Broadcasters (AUB) will see to it that the 2010 World Cup reaches viewers across sub-Saharan Africa.All 64 of the tournament’s matches will be broadcast live on free-to-air television and radio in 41 regions in Africa in English, French and Portuguese. Fifa selected the AUB as the partner for sub-Saharan Africa based on its capacity to reach the largest possible audience.AUB is a combination of the Pan-African Broadcasting and Union of National Radio and Television Organisation of Africa, formed in 2007 to develop all facets of broadcasting on the continent.“The AUB has shown considerable strengths in uniting broadcasters under one umbrella to ensure that all sub-Saharan Africans will be able to have access to the radio and TV coverage of and around the 2010 Fifa World Cup,” said Fifa president Sepp Blatter.“We always promised that 2010 would be an African World Cup, and with today’s cooperation agreement we have made a big step towards achieving this goal.”An African production centre will be established at the International Broadcast Centre (IBC) in Johannesburg during the 2010 event to ensure high-quality coverage for African viewers.The IBC, the communication nucleus of the 2010 Fifa World Cup, is under construction at the Nasrec Exhibition Centre in the south of Johannesburg. Nasrec is one of the oldest and largest exhibition centres in Johannesburg. More than R120-million (US$12-million) is being spent on the upgrading and installations that will be required by the 15 000 media personnel and commentators who will descend on the city for six weeks during June and July 2010.Johannesburg is already the primary broadcasting hub for international and local television and radio, as well as home to almost 60% of all information, communication and technology businesses in South Africa.“For us at AUB the deal was a dream come true for it accords with the goals of our Union for sustainability and will facilitate the achievement of one of the goals we adopted as legacies for Africa from the 2010 Fifa World Cup in South Africa, namely capacity development of broadcasting in Africa,” said Lawrence Atiase, CEO of the AUB.“We are fully committed to playing our part and we thank Fifa for placing their trust in the AUB’s ability to deliver.”The move is also being welcomed by several African countries who cannot afford to pay the high prices for broadcast rights of such tournaments. Kenya, for example, who has in the past broadcast live tournaments like the African Cup of Nations and the Olympic Games to the Kenyan public, did so at considerable costs.“We welcome this move by Fifa,” says Kenya Broadcasting Corporation managing director David Waweru. “It will be easier to negotiate with AUB, who will sell at more affordable and realistic fees than third parties. We are now sure we, as the national broadcaster, will bring the 2010 World Cup to Kenyans.”The previous Fifa World Cup, held in Germany 2006, was the most extensive in the tournament’s history. Compared to the 2002 tournament, which was covered by 232 channels worldwide, the 2006 event was broadcast by 376 channels reaching 24.2-billion viewers globally.According to the Fifa website, the 2006 event was aired in a total 43 600 broadcasts across 214 countries generating total coverage of 73 072 hours. This means that if all the 2006 coverage were shown on just one channel, it would take over eight years to broadcast non-stop.Host of the next Fifa World Cup, South Africa, enjoyed more 2006 Fifa World Cup Germany coverage than any other African market, with the cable network, SuperSport, showing a total of 1 627 hours of coverage on its five channels.Do you have any comments or queries about this article?

first_img14 May 2012 South Africa has become a member of a European institute that makes joint use of radio telescopes spread across the world to produce the clearest available images of some of the most distant and energetic objects in the universe. The Joint Institute for Very Long Baseline Interferometry in Europe (Jive) last week welcomed South Africa’s National Research Foundation (NRF) as a member. JIVE’s funding organisations already include the National Astronomical Observatories of China, as well as European national research councils and facilities in France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, Sweden and the UK. Jive supports the European VLBI Network (EVN) of radio astronomy facilities, which collaborates with international facilities to conduct Very Long Baseline Interferometry (VLBI), an astronomical technique “that uses widely separated radio telescopes in conjunction with each other to simulate a single telescope hundreds or thousands of kilometres in diameter,” Jive said in a statement last week. “This technique produces the clearest, highest resolution images of some of the most distant and energetic objects in the universe.” South Africa’s Hartebeesthoek Radio Astronomy Observatory (HartRAO) has been an active member of the EVN since 2001, and its 26-metre dish has participated in EVN observations for an even longer time. HartRAO is also working with various African countries to convert obsolete satellite communications dishes across the continent into radio telescopes to create an African VLBI network which, it is planned, will also collaborate with Jive. South Africa’s radio astronomy – and VLBI – capabilities will be hugely augmented when the Karoo Array Telescope (also known as the MeerKAT), a 64-dish precursor instrument for the Square Kilometre Array, is commissioned in 2014/15. “The formal addition of the NRF as a full Jive member signals the NRF’s commitment to VLBI and to the future of our collaboration in the EVN in particular,” said Jive director Huib van Langevelde. “The NRF partnership commits Jive to actively assist in making these facilities successful new additions to the VLBI network. “Hartebeesthoek’s participation in VLBI observations over the past several years has improved the performance of the EVN tremendously,” Van Langevelde said. “We look forward to observing together with these new South African telescopes to further strengthen the EVN.” SAinfo reporterlast_img read more

first_imgThe wearables industry has been primarily focused on building devices for humans, but that could change in the next few years, if the excitement over dog wearables with the Link AKC is any indicator.The smart collar, designed in collaboration with the American Kennel Club (AKC), comes packed with features you would find on a normal human wearable, including a fitness tracker and step count.Seee Also: World’s second biggest wearables maker debuts new smartwatchThe fitness tracker offers analysis on the dog’s activity level and length. It also breaks down the activity by breed, so there will be varied amounts of daily exercise, depending on the needs of your dog.Link AKC also comes with a few features built specifically for dogs, like a temperature tracker that warns you when the dog is too hot or too cold. Owners can also create a ‘virtual fence’, and will notify you when the dog’s collar leaves the zone.Dog adventures can be sharedOwners can also share “Adventures” they have been on with their dog, similar to Facebook’s check-in feature. Photos can be added to the post, and we suspect users will be able to add the route walked.For dog owners that want their pooch to be fit, healthy, and safe, this could be a good investment. However, it doesn’t come cheap, starting at $199 with a two-year $6.95 monthly contract.That’s a big commitment, even for the most pampered pooches.Design-conscious folks should be happy with the Link AKC. It looks similar to most dog collars, the buttons are well hidden, and the leather exterior is quite premium compared to plastic and metal collars that a lot of dogs wear.Could this be the future of wearables? There’s enough overindulgent pet owners that it could become a trend, but we’ll have to wait and see as more pet wearables hit the market.
