Automate your licence checks

first_imgA new system to ensure compliance – that includes automatic checks of drivers’ licences – is now available from LicenceCheck.The software, called DAVIS, is designed to ensure that your drivers are legally entitled to be on the road, by checking every licence in your fleet.The internet-based system uses cloud computing, to enable easy access and security. It has a range of easy-to-use reports with colour coding, and can be used from any web browser on any device.Also, the system can grow with your fleet, and works with mixed fleets, where different driving entitlements are required.A powerful autofill capability adds your vehicle details, road fund licence and MoT information automatically (using DLVA, SMMT and DVLA data).This ensures that adding a vehicle is fast and accurate, and all fields are properly completed.Useful features include prompts and reminders to drivers and managers about important dates and actions to be completed. There is also a news broadcast to managers and drivers so that important information is easily disseminated.The next two months will see more modules added including telematics, foreign driving licence document recognition and expenses management. Early 2016 will see tachograph, replacement vehicle hire, driver assessment and training added.Says LicenceCheck MD Richard Brown: “Offering powerful reporting facilities, DAVIS uses technology to meet your requirements in the most efficient and cost-effective way. This is different to many competitor products that rely on extensive manual intervention to manage services and provide reports.”last_img read more

Minnesota takes game one in Ann Arbor 3-1

first_imgAfter the game, head coach Bob Motzko told the media that the game was an important win.“It wasn’t a pretty game for us, but we did enough good things that amount to a win, and that’s what is important….You add up those little things tonight, and that’s what led us to get the win tonight,” Motzko said. “But we have a chance to be better tomorrow too.”Minnesota will face Michigan again Tuesday night at 5:30 p.m. on the Big Ten Network.Correction: A previous version of this story misstated the date of the game. The article has been updated with the correct date.

Julianna Landis, Sports ReporterDecember 8, 2020Jump to CommentsShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare via EmailPrintIn the final series of the first half of its schedule, Minnesota faced an unpredictable matchup against Michigan, given that both teams would be losing key players temporarily to the World Junior Championship, but Minnesota prevailed to extend its win streak to seven straight to open the season.Ben Meyers put in the work against the Wolverines on Tuesday, assisting the first two goals of the game and also scoring the final goal of the night. In post-game media availability, Meyers said that after a scoreless first period, play opened up more as the game went on, allowing the Gophers to score.“The first period, it was just two good teams playing really hard and there were a lot of experienced guys, so there wasn’t many turnovers and not a lot of offense… just stuck to the game plan,” he said.Michigan’s only goal of the night came directly after Meyers’ 3-0 tally in the third, with Kent Johnson getting the Wolverines on the board.Minnesota had five chances on the powerplay on Tuesday, and it once again found the back of the net with the man advantage, this time from a gritty Sampo Ranta rebound in front of the crease. Ranta’s goal in the second period was quickly followed up with one from Bryce Brodzinski, and after a scoreless first period Minnesota went into the locker room leading 2-0 at the second intermission.last_img read more

Ngannou could go from homeless to UFC heavyweight champ

first_imgMuch like his Embiid, who only started playing basketball at 15, Ngannou was a late-bloomer to mixed martial arts. He was raised as one of five children in the poverty-stricken village of Batie and was only 12 when he went to work in the sand mines to support his family. Basically raised by a single mother, Ngannou was a Tyson fan and wanted to box, so he dabbled and drained in the sport for a few years. He knew there was little future in fighting stuck in the mines and realized if he wanted to become serious about the sport, he’d have to leave Cameroon.“If it was easy for me, I would have stayed in Cameroon,” Ngannou said. “I like to be close to my family. But one day, I felt like I didn’t have a choice. I left everything of my 26 years life behind me, closed the door and go somewhere where I don’t know what it looks like.”His new home was Paris. But Ngannou had no friends, no plan, no support system and lived on the streets. Ngannou worked in the kitchen for a humanitarian organization that helped homeless in Paris.“Being in the street in Paris, it wasn’t scary,” he said. “I embraced that situation because I knew worse than that. I’ve been in a worse situation than that one. Being in the streets in Paris was more comfortable than almost all the situations I’ve been though in my life.”And the worst situation?“I wasn’t able to have a kid life,” he said. “It’s not a good one. I don’t like it.”Ngannou found his way in his 20s and eventually visited the MMA Factory where he met his eventual coach, Fernand Lopez. Lopez would convince Ngannou to forget about boxing and drilled him in jiujitsu and wrestling and a career in MMA.Ngannou made his pro debut in 2013 and was in UFC about two years later in December 2015.Ngannou, who speaks French and English, has not forgot his past and was offended when President Donald Trump reportedly used a profane term to describe African countries last week.“All those people that he was talking about are people like us,” he said. “It’s kind of difficult to accept a thing like that. For myself, the goal for me was to lift my country and (to) see someone who just wants to break that dream, that hope for people (is tough). This guy is like a shame for America. America was built from immigration. America is the country that the world, the poor countries look at and, not expect America to give them something, but just to look at them as an example and build their own country and get a better situation.”Ngannou’s family is still in Cameroon and he wanted his mother and a 17-year-old brother (“he’s very smart”) to come live in the United States.Up first, a shot at the title.Standing in his way is Miocic (17-2), who has a date with heavyweight history and will set the UFC record for consecutive title defenses in the division at three with a victory.Ngannou has one plan — for that UFC title to get wrapped around his waist.“Life beat me up a lot of times,” Ngannou said, “and I want to take my revenge.” FILE- In this Dec. 2, 2017, file photo, Francis Ngannou, left, hits Alistair Overeem in the first round during a UFC 218 heavyweight mixed martial arts bout, in Detroit.  (AP Photo/Jose Juarez, File)BOSTON (AP) — Francis Ngannou has knockout power that snaps back heads like Pez dispensers and earned him comparisons to Mike Tyson in his ferocious heyday.Ngannou has stood tall against all opposition in his UFC career and his terrifying run has shaped the challenger into the betting favorite in the heavyweight champion bout against Stipe Miocic.He’s not afraid to go face-to-face with anyone — even against his fellow Cameroon native, Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid. Ngannou, 6-foot-4, 250 pounds, was absolutely dwarfed by the 7-2 Embiid in a visit Thursday morning at Sixers shootaround .Ngannou was ready to pull on his MMA gloves.“He should be my next opponent,” Ngannou said.“I think I’d kick his ass,” Embiid said, laughing.Embiid pulled in Ngannou for a bro hug and predicted the No. 1 contender would win by knockout in the second round.“That’s a good prediction,” Ngannou said.It would also be a long night of work for Ngannou. The 31-year-old Ngannou (11-1) hasn’t needed to go beyond the first round in any of his last four bouts and has never gone past the second in his 12 pro fights.Knock out Miocic, and Ngannou would complete the made-for-movies tale of homeless to heavyweight champ and position himself as perhaps UFC’s most dominant big man since Brock Lesnar.Ngannou fights just seven weeks after his stunning victory of Alistair Overeem at UFC 218 on a left uppercut that rolled the eyes of the fallen foe to the back of his head. The crushing KO has been replayed in perpetuity to hype Saturday’s fight.At Fenway Park, the heavy hitter said he can’t escape the clip of his biggest swing.“Any time I open my email, my Instagram, my story, people send it to me in different versions,” Ngannou said. “I think I did very well. It was all about to connect. And I connected.”Blink and you might miss the crowning of a new champ.“Good for him. He got a great knockout,” Miocic said.Ngannou’s rise was hardly as swift.last_img read more

Serena Williams says it’s unfair she’s drug-tested more

first_imgLONDON (AP) — Serena Williams says it isn’t fair that she has been drug-tested more than other American tennis players this year. US tennis player Serena Williams reacts, during a press conference ahead of the Wimbledon Tennis Championships in London, Sunday July 1, 2018. (Jed Leicester/Pool Photo via AP) “Just test everyone equally,” the seven-time Wimbledon champion said Sunday at a pre-tournament news conference.She was asked about the issue because of a recent report by Deadspin that said Williams had been checked five times in 2018 by June, more than other U.S. women and men in the sport.U.S. Anti-Doping Agency spokesman Brad Horn told The Associated Press that the five tests conducted on Williams were a result of three visits from a test collector.“It is standard practice on many testing missions to obtain both urine and blood samples, resulting in multiple samples from a single testing mission,” Horn said.Williams returned to competition this season after missing more than a year as a result of pregnancy. The 36-year-old American gave birth to a daughter last September.Williams said she found it “a little frustrating” that she was deemed to have missed a test last month when a sample collector showed up at her house about 12 hours earlier than the time she had indicated she’d be available.“I’m totally OK with testing and I encourage it,” Williams said.She added: “It’s just about being equal and not centering one person out.”As part of USADA’s “intelligent” out-of-competition testing program, it is not unusual for top athletes — those who have had sustained success in their sport — to be tested more often than others. It also is not unusual for athletes who have taken long breaks to be subject to additional testing because of natural physiological changes that might have occurred during the time off.Tennis players can be tested by more than one agency, too.Williams’ complaints about unequal testing were mentioned Sunday to Roger Federer, who estimated he has been tested seven times in the last month, including in-competition and out-of-competition.“In the village I live in, in Switzerland, the tester lives in the same village, so it’s very convenient. It’s very convenient. If he’s bored at home, he probably just says, ‘Let me check in on Roger to see if he’s having a good time.’ Anyway, it’s only going to take 10 minutes, whatever,” Federer said. “I’ve been tested quite a bit, quite frequently out of competition.”But he also noted that he’s only been asked to provide a sample once while he’s been in Dubai, his base for the past 15 years. He called that lack of tests “quite disappointing.”“I think it varies from place to place that you spend your time in. Maybe that’s the part I don’t like so much: the inconsistency of the places where they test,” Federer said, adding that more funding is needed for doping control.“I don’t believe there’s ever going to be enough testing,” Federer said. “What’s important is these people are professional, they know what they’re doing, they treat you like humans, not like criminals. Then it’s OK. But I understand the frustration sometimes. I have it, too.”___AP National Writer Eddie Pells in Colorado Springs, Colorado, contributed to this report.___More AP tennis coverage: https://www.apnews.com/tag/apf-Tennislast_img read more

David De Gea (goalkeeper) – click the right arrow, above, to see Manchester United’s predicted XI (4-2-3-1) to face Sunderland, in squad number order… Manchester United will be without Wayne Rooney and Ashley Young for Sunday’s Premier League clash at struggling Sunderland.Captain Rooney missed the midweek draw with Everton due to ankle issues, while Young was forced off with an apparent groin injury in that game at Old Trafford.Antonio Valencia should return in Young’s place after being rested, while Juan Mata [groin], Phil Jones [toe] and Chris Smalling [knee] are long-term absentees.Jose Mourinho may select his team with one eye on Thursday’s Europa League quarter-final first-leg clash at Anderlecht.United and England midfielder Jesse Lingard will be hoping for a starting place just days after penning a new £100,000-a-week deal with the club. Meanwhile Anthony Martial could come back into the side in place of Marcus Rashford after the latter’s poor showing against the Toffees.The Red Devils have not lost in the league since October and will be hoping to extend that run against basement club Sunderland, managed by Sir Alex Ferguson’s successor in David Moyes.Click the right arrow, above, to see the predicted Manchester United XI [4-2-3-1] to face Sunderland at the Stadium of Light… 3.
