  • Cech prepared for Courtois battle

    first_img Belgium’s highly-rated World Cup stopper Thibaut Courtois joins the Blues squad next week having completed a successful three-year loan spell at Atletico Madrid. Courtois has been described by Blues boss Jose Mourinho as the “best young goalkeeper in the world”. The 22-year-old was outstanding last season when he helped Atletico win the Spanish league title and reach the Champions League final, eliminating Chelsea at the semi-final stage in the process. Cech has accepted the challenge by telling Mourinho he is ready to prove he should still be first choice. “I always give my best. That’s all I can do,” Cech told reporters on the club’s pre-season tour of Austria. “I will do my best and I will do everything I can to be as ready as possible for when the season starts. “Jose Mourinho will make the choice how his team is going to look for the first game. “It’s up to us players to show that we are ready to play and make him pick us. I’m not different, I’m doing everything to make him pick me. “I don’t want to be on the bench and as I said I will do everything not to be. “I don’t want to talk about ifs or buts though, let’s see. I’m going day by day and we will see what is going to happen. Press Association Petr Cech is determined to fight for his place as his decade-long reign as Chelsea’s preferred goalkeeper comes under threat for the first time. “All I have in my control is my performance on the pitch and the way I prepare. Anything else is not in my hands.” Cech made his first appearance since dislocating his shoulder in April when Chelsea were held to a 1-1 draw with WAC in Austria. “It was great to be back. I’m further ahead than what we thought it might have been which is another positive thing,” Cech said. “The third positive thing is that I felt like I never stopped. “When you play your first pre-season game you get used to the space again and the pace of the game but I felt fit.” last_img read more

  • Buys aiming to follow Stander’s lead

    first_img23 July 2013South African Olympic cyclist Philip Buys is out to prove a point at the 2013 UCI Mountain Bike and Trials World Championships starting in Pietermaritzburg on 26 August – and to give a performance that does justice to the late Burry Stander.The 24-year-old Team Scott Factory rider headed to Spain for the fourth round of the UCI World Cup last week, looking to fine-tune his form before flying home to prepare for the World Championships at a training camp in Cape Town before heading to Pietermaritzburg a week before the event.For Durban-born Buys, who recently won the Cycling South African national MTB series title, the 2013 Cross Country World Championships is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.Once-in-a-lifetime opportunity“I will never again get a chance to compete in a World Cross Country Champs on home soil, and racing on a track that I know well, I want to take full advantage of this opportunity,” he said in a statement ahead of his departure for Europe.“Every track is difficult in its own way, but the Cascades track seems to suit my style. I race it at every opportunity, and the more you race it the more comfortable you feel on it,” he added.Since the London Olympic Games, Buys has steadily climbed up the UCI rankings, and now finds himself ranked around 20th in the world, bringing with it a preferential seeding at major international races.“It’s quite different! When you start at the front everyone seems kind of shaky, while when you are seeded 70th and some way back, you have five seconds or so before you even cross the start line,” he said.PodiumIllness hampered his recent World Cup campaign, but he managed a podium in one of the Eliminator races. That has helped focus his training and preparations for the World Championships.“I’ve got the power. I know that and the Eliminator proves that. Now I am working on my fitness. Since the Absa Cape Epic I have been focusing more on training and recovery and actually racing less.”With a top 20 seeding, Buys is looking to finish the World Championships with a top 15 or top 10 result, and says he is driven in a significant way by his desire to sustain the legacy of the late Burry Stander.‘No excuses’“Burry did so much for this sport in South Africa. He set the standard and proved that as a South African you have no excuses not to beat the best in the world,” Buys explained.“With Burry’s passing the responsibility shifts to us to uphold his standards, and to go further and to take his achievements and go beyond that. That is a huge and positive motivation for me now.”Buys will also carry forward his experiences at the Olympics as he seeks to make the most of high profile and high pressure opportunities in the future.“As big as the Olympics were for me, I learnt a lot from that experience. I attach the same level of importance to these World Champs, and I know a lot more about what I have to do to perform at that level now. For me representing my country is a huge honour,” he said.Home town fans and supportersBuys has prioritised the UCI MTB and Trials World Championships and wants to wring full value out of the opportunity to race in front of his home town fans and supporters.“Travelling is always difficult. Your fitness levels drop and you can get sick travelling, so having this event at home is such a great opportunity. I know and like the course, and it will just take a few days to get it properly dialled in.“Then it is just about controlling myself. Your energy levels tend to be high during the taper phase,” he revealed.The UCI Mountain Bike and Trials World Championships takes place at Cascades MTB Park in Pietermaritzburg from 26 August to 1 September 2013, and will be preceded by the UCI MTB Masters World Championships from 21 to 25 August.SAinfo reporterlast_img read more

  • Private Sector Urged to Work Closely with Public Sector to Improve Customer Service

    first_imgDirector General of the Public Sector Transformation and Modernisation (PSTM) Division, Office of the Cabinet, Veniece Pottinger-Scott, has called on the private sector to work closely with the public sector to improve customer service in the country.“We are relying on you, the private sector, to work even more closely alongside us to make the impactful change that our millions of citizens, residents, members of the Diaspora and our investors expect and deserve,” Mrs. Pottinger-Scott said.She was speaking to private sector leaders at an Excellence Visioning Workshop held on July 27 at the Terra Nova All Suite Hotel in Kingston.The event was one of a series of consultations organised by the Office of the Cabinet in collaboration with the Social Development Commission (SDC) to improve customer service in the public sector and to agree on elements of service excellence.Mrs. Pottinger-Scott said early next month, the PSOJ and Government, through the PSTM programme, will sign a Memorandum of Understanding to strengthen the collaboration on customer service improvement.The agreement will emphasise the creation of learning opportunities between sectors and the sharing of best practices that can be adopted to address service delivery weaknesses in the public sector.“We are making slow strides and are eager to partner with PSOJ to get further faster,” she added.She said the PSTM programme is keen on improving “Jamaica’s competitiveness ranking,” adding that the country slipped two spaces from the 65th ranking it held in the Doing Business Report last year.Currently, Jamaica is ranked 67 among 190 countries in the World Bank-led Report.Mrs. Pottinger-Scott cited a slew of initiatives under the PSTM programme scheduled to come on stream before the end of the next financial year. Among the initiatives is the launch of an electronic business registration system through the Companies Office of Jamaica.“We are still working on it and we have certain timelines that we have to meet. It involves not just the automation of the application process for company registration, but putting the system online, so that 24 seven applications could be put in,” she said.Additionally, she said the AMANDA development approval process portal, which will allow builders and developers to upload and track their applications online, is being implemented.The Director General also spoke of plans to launch a national Government e-portal, which will provide “a single gateway to information on all Government services to make finding information and services far easier than it is today.”Meanwhile, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the PSOJ, Dennis Chung, said he was happy to accept the invitation to partner with the Cabinet Office in the customer service improvement venture, since “it was a natural fit and a natural progression to get there.”Mr. Chung said customer service is the heart of private sector businesses in Jamaica, adding that service excellence makes a significant difference to achieving the maximum potential in private sector businesses.“If you think about the potential that it can achieve in the country through the delivery of excellent customer service, it is tremendous,” he emphasised.According to Mr. Chung, public sector bureaucracy is the second impediment to doing business in Jamaica.“If the Government could resolve the bureaucracy issues, then we can go a far way in driving economic activities in the country,” he said.Since April 2017, the PSTM Division, which was created to streamline activities aimed at boosting Government efficiency, has been engaging technocrats in Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs), civil society and other groups at service excellence visioning workshops.last_img read more
