Pochettino unfazed by Spurs’ quiet transfer window

first_img0Shares0000Mauricio Pochettino is unfazed by Tottenham’s lack of success in the transfer market © AFP / Ian KINGTONLONDON, United Kingdom, Aug 9 – Mauricio Pochettino insists Tottenham’s lack of activity in the transfer window isn’t a problem because it was just as important to hold onto the club’s key players.With the Premier League transfer market closing at 1600 GMT, Tottenham are set to be the only top-flight side not to make a signing since the end of last season. Pochettino had been linked with several players and a fresh approach for Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish was rebuffed by the Championship club earlier this week.The Tottenham manager had challenged his club to be “brave and take risks” when asked what Tottenham needed to do to improve their squad.But, although the Argentinian on Thursday conceded the transfer window would probably close without a fresh face arriving, he was adamant it was still a good period for his team.The reason for his optimism? — England striker Harry Kane, Denmark playmaker Christian Eriksen, South Korea forward Son Heung-min and England defender Kieran Trippier have all signed new contracts since May.“We have a very good squad, with very good players and it is very difficult to add players to that,” Pochettino said.“We didn’t sell players and with 25 players in the squad it is difficult to add players.“It’s not about adding because it’s fashionable to sign players. It’s about if you really need them or not and then if you can get your target or not.“It’s true our targets are always the same level as Manchester United, Manchester City or Real Madrid but for different circumstances we can’t achieve that.“I am not worried, I am not sad, I am so happy. To keep our best players was our objective and goal and we have achieved that – at the moment, we will see what happens in the next 20 days in Europe.“If you can’t add a player that can improve your squad, the most important thing is to make sure you do not lose your best players and I think that was a great job from the club to keep the best players and the manager.”Some Tottenham fans fear their club’s lack of activity might force Pochettino to consider leaving, but the former Southampton boss is happy with the club’s vision.“Of course it’s difficult to understand for people in football that Tottenham didn’t sign or sell players, but sometimes in football you need to behave differently,” he said.“If we are happy with our squad and cannot improve our squad, sometimes it’s better to keep our squad together.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Horace Clarke High and Bull Bay All-Age Win SRC Science Competition

first_img Two rural schools took the top spots in the Scientific Research Council’s (SRC) Improving Innovation Capacities in the Caribbean (INVOCAB) Science and Technology Innovation competition. Junior Expert for the INVOCAB Project, SRC, Yanique Wallace, told JIS News that the annual competition targets low-performing schools in the sciences in the Grade Six Achievement Test (GSAT) and Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC). Horace Clarke High in St. Mary won in the secondary category, while Bull Bay All-Age in St. Thomas was victorious in the primary-school segment of the contest held in July. Story Highlights Two rural schools took the top spots in the Scientific Research Council’s (SRC) Improving Innovation Capacities in the Caribbean (INVOCAB) Science and Technology Innovation competition.Horace Clarke High in St. Mary won in the secondary category, while Bull Bay All-Age in St. Thomas was victorious in the primary-school segment of the contest held in July.At the awards ceremony held on September 20 at Bull Bay All-Age, the school was presented with the SRC trophy and a tablet from CHEETAH Toys and More, LLC.Principal Justin Duncan credited the victory to the hard work and determination of the students and staff.He told JIS News that the team spent long hours perfecting the solar water-heating device that won them the competition.“We did it as a team. Myself, the teachers and the students, we came up with the idea. I designed it and we walked through the steps to make the project work. It was not easy, but the students were committed to the task,” he said.The rudimentary heater is comprised of nine transparent bottles encased in a wooden panel. The bottom of the panel is lined with foil, and there is a glass covering at the top to absorb heat from the sun. The bottles are filled with water from a large black receptacle. The heated water is then stored in an insulated igloo.Mr. Duncan is grateful that his school got the opportunity to participate in the competition, noting that what they have learnt “will certainly help the students in their examinations”.He noted that the subject of science is important, because of its presence in everyday life.Meanwhile, Horace Clarke High School, which was presented with the SRC trophy on September 18, won for their design of a waste-water and solid-waste management system.“It’s an agronomic hybrid system used to address solid-waste management,” explained Principal Christopher Walker.“It also harvests rainwater. The device also helps in the making of fertilisers and methane gas,” he added.Mr. Walker told JIS News that winning the competition has served as a motivation for the students and teachers.“It gives us something to brag about. We were struggling with the sciences, but we have seen some improvements in the teaching methodologies and the students’ performance,” he said.Junior Expert for the INVOCAB Project, SRC, Yanique Wallace, told JIS News that the annual competition targets low-performing schools in the sciences in the Grade Six Achievement Test (GSAT) and Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC).The objective is to engender innovation in science among students.“We are trying to get these schools in line with schools like Ardenne High School, Campion College and Holmwood Technical High School,” she pointed out.“We want to take those schools and give them that attention they need to succeed. The idea behind INVOCAB is to improve innovation capacity and encourage teachers to encourage the students to become innovative citizens,” she added.INVOCAB, which was launched in 2014, aims to contribute towards improving innovation in the Caribbean by building and strengthening capacities in the areas of science, technology and innovation as an enabler of poverty reduction, growth and socio-economic development of countries in the region.Other participating schools were Whitfield All-Age and Seaward Primary and Junior High in Kingston; Yallahs High School in St. Thomas; Windsor Castle All-Age in Portland; Carron Hall High in St Mary; and Greater Portmore High in St. Catherine.last_img read more
