Veterans Memorial Arena gets a new name

first_imgOn Thursday, the Broome County Legislature voted with 13 members in favor of giving naming rights to Visions Federal Credit Union. This comes after Maine’s Paper & Food’s Contract expired in June. Vision’s President and CEO Ty Muse says Broome County is home. Broome County officials say the fee will double if the county is successful in securing funding for and completing a “significant” renovation for the area that will cost more $20 million. “Partnering with the County and Mirabito furthers our investment in the community, and it’s even better knowing that we’ll have a part in drawing more people to the area,” he says. “Whether they’re here for LUMA, hockey, or even a concert, they can experience all the great things that the Binghamton area has going for it.” BINGHAMTON (WBNG) — The Floyd L. Maines arena will be renamed the “Visions Federal Credit Union Veterans Memorial Arena.” The deal will be commenced on Jan. 1, 2021 and the name will run for 10 years but could be extended for five more years. Broome County will receive $60,000 per year during this time. Visions has teamed up Mirabito convenience stores to create a reserve account dedicated to increasing the number of live events at the arena and forum theater. Mirabito was announced to be the new sponsor of the box offices at the arena. Mirabito CEO Joe Mirabito called the partnership exciting. “By working together, we will be able to better support the Arena and its efforts to enhance the quality of life in our community,” he said.last_img read more

“Dacosta must learn to stay on his feet as a defender”- Maxwell Konadu

first_imgAsante Kotoko head coach, Maxwell Konadu, has thrown a word of caution to defender, Ampem DaCosta, over his output in defence and wants the player to perform better.Dacosta joined the team from Karela in July 2019 on a three-year deal and has been regular in the team’s matches.However, he did not score the best of marks in Maxwell Konadu’s books in their 1-0 to Berekum Chelsea in Week 3 of the Ghana Premier League and Konadu believes that that the player needs to sharped certain rough edges to his game if he will make great strides in his career.“I think some players like Dacosta have developed certain ways of playing that are not good for modern day soccer. If you have defenders who go down too easily, then we need to start thinking about these things.If he had stood his ground and stayed on his feet, maybe the goal scored by Berekum Chelsea would not have been registered.We have corrected Dacosta and he has seen it and he has to work on it we have said it over and over again. He did not play a bad game.He did his best but these are the things he has to work on it or else, he will get punished for it.”Costly day for AmpemDacosta’s errors in play were not the only ways he influenced proceedings on the day.He was at the centre of fan fury that sparked violent scenes at the Baba Yara Stadium after the match.Referee Charles Bulu’s decision to send him off got the fans upset because they felt Dacosta was the wrong player to have been booked by the referee following an off-the-ball incident.It was the spillover of their displeasure that led to the massing up after the game and thus, the shooting of the fan at the Baba Yara Stadium.However, it turns out that referee Bulu got the decision right and that was corrobrated by Berekum Chelsea coach, Joseph Asare Bediako, who said after the match that he saw the incident and the referee had booked the right offender.last_img read more

Arsenal beat Middlesbrough 2-0 to reach FA Cup quarter-finals

first_imgTwo first-half goals by Olivier Giroud were more than enough to see Arsenal beat Middlesbrough at the Emirates Stadium and progress to the last eight in the FA Cup. Boro never looked like pulling off a shock in north LondonTwo left-footed finishes on the half-turn in quick succession from Giroud during the first period ensured that the Championship’s second-placed club would not pose the Gunners any great problems.Arsenal largely controlled matters in the second half at the Emirates Stadium but were unable to add to their lead, before Boro’s Kike hit the woodwork with a header very late on.The Gunners dominated from the off, threatening the Middlesbrough target relentlessly.The hosts eventually moved ahead when, at the conclusion to a fine move, Santi Cazorla played a pass left to Kieran Gibbs, who centred low for Giroud to force a finish past Tomas Mejias with 27 minutes on the clock.The visiting goalkeeper had almost kept out the Frenchman’s effort from six yards but was given no chance two minutes later, as Giroud powerfully met Alexis Sanchez’s delivery at the near post while Boro’s defenders bemoaned the award of the corner kick. Sanchez almost made it three, chasing and getting a touch to Mesut Ozil’s through-ball. Mejias managed an important contact, allowing Adam Clayton to clear the danger.The Gunners were comfortable in the second period, going extremely close to adding to their lead when Mejias made a fantastic save to keep out Sanchez’s flicked header from an in-swinging Cazorla free-kick.Middlesbrough tentatively threatened one occasion, but Arsenal looked far more likely to net the next goal, with only less-than-clinical play in the final third keeping the visiting side in the clash.At the death – it would have been too late to facilitate the realistic possibility of a replay – Boro came within inches of scoring, as Kike headed Grant Leadbitter’s floated cross off a post.As it was, Arsenal secured what was a well-deserved two-goal triumph.last_img read more

One Month Later: iOS 4 on 50% of iPhones

Chitika offers a closer look at the numbers to show that only 5% of iPhones are running the latest update of iOS 4, and a third of those still running iOS 3 are not running the latest version of it. While we expect that some of the iPhones running iOS 3 are doing so because iOS 4 would slow their phone down (as has been reported with the iPhone 3G), we also suspect that a percent of phones have not updated to keep their jailbreak intact. It would be interesting to see what happens to these numbers when a reliable way is found to jailbreak iOS 4 for the iPhone 3GS.
