We want more – STGC principal

first_img JC A TOUGH TEAM Principal Margaret Campbell believes her St George’s College (STGC) school spirit will soar even higher following that institution’s emphatic ISSA/Flow Super Cup 4-0 beating of Jamaica College (JC) inside the National Stadium, last Saturday. STGC pocketed $1,000,000, JC took home $375,000 for second place, while Wolmer’s Boys finished third after beating St Jago 2-1. 17-year-old Alex Marshall, STGC’s influential striker, was named the Golden Boot winner for his six goals. Following Saturday’s massive final, which saw the Corporate Area kingpins settle at one Super Cup each, STGC’s jubilant principal is eying “more titles and more success.” “This year when our theme is ‘STGC good and true, fanning the flames of the white and blue’, this just brings everybody together. It’s just wonderful to win, and the million dollars of course is wonderful,” Campbell joked. “I have to say our coach Neville Bell is wonderful, but in addition to that, I think because we are now expected to be winning in football the students that choose us choose because of football. “I believe in excellence, win or lose, I am proud of my boys but it’s always good to win, so it would be good to win all four titles. It would do a lot for us in terms of school spirit, support for us and support from our old boys,” the principal told The Gleaner. She added: “JC were not a walk over, they’re a tough team to beat.” “Absolutely, big celebrations for us next week, just a school thing for now until we figure out what we are going to do,” she outlined. Saturday’s final was a vintage performance from Alex Marshall who scored two and played a part in all four goals. Gregory Messam Jr dispatched a fifth-minute penalty after Marshall was dragged down in the penalty box. Marshall then finished off an exquisite strike from captain Shevon Stewart in minute 14. The irrepressible number 11 returned to torment JC in the second half, with his frustrated man-marker Ajeanie Talbott getting his second yellow card for a foul 24 yards out. Former JC player Ronaldo Watson caressed home the free kick in minute 53, while Marshall polished off his superb brace in the 58th minute. “It was always difficult against Stewart and Marshall we applied a man-marker against Marshall, he found space and anytime he got a look on goal it’s a goal. St George’s and Jamaica College is always a tough rivalry, hats off to St George’s, they were the better team, they were decisive in front of goal,” said JC Coach Miguel Coley. – Shayne Fairmanlast_img read more

Chrysler Portal Electric Van Confirmed For Production

Author Liberty Access TechnologiesPosted on September 20, 2018Categories Electric Vehicle News In concept form, the Portal was blessed with a massive 100 kWh battery which, at the time, was said to be good for 250 miles of range. We would not be surprised to see it achieve even better that, depending on its eventual size, weight, and aerodynamic profile. Unfortunately, we also would not be surprised if the eventual pack was downsized a bit in an effort to make the car more affordable, though our fingers are crossed in hopes it might at least maintain that 250-mile ability.Speaking of changes between the concept and the eventual production version, it seems unlikely the autonomous feature would be ready for full implementation at the time of the Portal’s 2020 rollout, so don’t expect to see a retractable steering wheel. Tilting and telescopic, probably. Completely retractable? Not yet, at least.One feature we do hope makes the transition is charging speed. When it debuted in Las Vegas, the Portal boasted a 350-kW DC fast charging ability. By the time it reaches customers, the charging network currently being built by Electrify America should have a number of locations offering this level of charging power, making road trips even more painless than the current Tesla Supercharger network does for its vehicles.Though it invented the mini-van back in the 1980’s, other automakers have taken away a good chunk of its market and mindshare over the years. The Portal, if successfully implemented, could catapult the company back to a clear technological leadership position. Indeed, FCA has already made an impressive showing with its Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid, so we know it’s capable of quality electric vehicle engineering.While we wait to see what the production version might look like, check out our gallery below and tell us what features you think it needs to be a winner in its space.Chrysler Portal concept Source: Automotive News 21 photos Chrysler Portal Electric Minivan Concept – Photos & Videos From CES 2017 Source: Electric Vehicle News Chrysler Unveils Portal Electric Minivan – 100 kWh Battery & 250 Miles Of Range (w/video) Unlikely to be autonomousIf you were a fan of the Chrysler Portal concept that was unveiled early in 2017 at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), then you may be in luck.
