UWI were hungry for win … Coach Marcel Gayle happy for team’s historic top flight success

first_imgPortmore United’s dream start to the Red Stripe Premier League (RSPL) came to an unlikely end yesterday after they fell 1-0 to bottom-of-the-table University of the West Indies (UWI) Football Club at the UWI Bowl. The St Catherine-based club had a perfect three wins from as many matches, but Kemar Cummings’ 87th-minute strike ended that record and gave newcomers UWI their first-ever Premier League win. “We were hungry for it,” UWI’s coach, Marcel Gayle, told The Gleaner. “We were more disciplined and more organised, but most importantly, we got the win.” The three points lifted UWI to ninth, tied with eighth-place Harbour View (three points), but sit above Tivoli Gardens, Boys’ Town and Waterhouse, who are all yet to win this season. The defeat also meant Port-more lost their place at the top, as they slipped to second behind Reno, who stopped Tivoli 3-2. Randell Morris netted the winner from the spot in the third minute of added time after the teams were locked at 2-2. At Stadium East, Cavalier registered their second straight win with a 2-0 win over Rivoli. Ryan Miller fired the home team ahead on the stroke of half-time before Chevone Marsh sealed the win seven minutes from time. “It was a harder game than I thought it would be,” winning coach Rudolph Speid said afterwards. “They came close to scoring on a few occasions, but once we settled and started passing the ball, we got the first goal, and the second goal was just a matter of time.” The win carried Cavalier to third on seven points, ahead of Humble Lion only on goal difference, three behind leaders Reno (10) and two adrift of Portmore United (9). At Barbican field, Montego Bay United continue Boys’ Town’s miserable start, handing the hosts a 3-0 defeat. MoBay sit mid-table with Arnett Gardens, on six points. Waterhouse currently sit at the bottom with one point from their games, and will play Harbour View in the Monday-night game at Harbour View this evening at 8:30 p.m.last_img read more

Breathable Elastic Band Satin Sleeping Cap FULL SIZE : Good but not machine washable?

first_img I am in mourning with my black hat. This seems ok, nice light/breathable fabric, but i received black, which would have been my last choice. Size seems reasonable, not as large as it looks on the illustration, hope it fits over rollers. Great it works well and comfortable to wear. Have used it a couple of times for leave in conditioner over night ,great it works well and comfortable to wear. This is an amazing find, i have bought similar product in the. This is an amazing find, i have bought similar product in the past before but this cap is amazing. Great size and actually stays on all night, which is great because my other scarf comes off during the night. I was extremely skeptical after reading some bad reviews as they always make me paranoid but i had nothing to worry about. It came 2 days after i bought it which was earlier than the estimated delivery date. It’s not as big as it looks on the picture so don’t worry. It’s of average size and quite stretchy. It says on at night and i don’t see any faults with it :’). Breathable and does not squeeze the head. Purchased by mistake as i thought it was waterproof. But it has other uses, for wearing around the house or sleeping with it on. As the description states, it is breathable and it stays on the head all night. Good but the elastic band is loose. . However, the elastic band is becoming loose and i don’t know if its going to get worse. It has lasted for a while though. Although makes the top of my ears sore when i wake up lol. The product lets your hair breath and. The product lets your hair breath and doesn’t cause you to sweat but does not maintain the moisture levels in your hair. When i took it off in the morning my hair felt dry and looked dry. Will go back to my satin scarf. I ‘ve got medium length natural hair which i put in twists at night, the cap fully covers my head. I’ve just ordered another one. Price is amazing in relation to quality. Stays on during the night and still maintains my hair to breath while i sleep. Good product and does what i wanted it to do. Good product and does what i wanted it to do. It stays on my head overnight and protects my hair from damage from pillowcases. I just wanted to mention that it is no where near the size that it appears to be in the photo. Good but not machine washable?. Very happy when it arrived, was large to fit all my hair in as described, but felt it was too tight around the elastic bit. Gave it a wash in the machine and the elastic bit is now permanently bigger after one wash. It still stays on my head but is much looser. Great value, a must for naturals. . This product is really good value for money. I can fit it on a set of big set of braids and keep them looking sleek for a good while. A satin cap is pretty much a must for anyone with natural hair if they want their styles to still look good the next morning. I’ve found my twist-outs look dry and a tad frizzy when i use cotton to wrap my hair but satin really does keep the moisture in. This cap also doesn’t fall off in my sleep (most of the time). Doesn’t slip off and not tight. Very comfortable to sleep in. Its okay for sleeping but i have to ask the question to the manufacturers, is this really satin?. I hope that this is not a reap off.

Can UserVoice Do What FISH! Can’t and Make Customer Service Fun?

first_imgRelated Posts Here’s how Lynn Cox of UserVoice explains it:How the system works is on a “thank you” basis. Customers can thank the help person that made them happy. Help teams are working within a system that features a tracking dashboard – it tracks each person’s “customer thanks” and everyone can see how the whole team is doing in real-time. So with this system, customers are happy from the fast/helpful/human responses they receive and support teams are more engaged in a fun game-like atmosphere.The idea is to give teams a way to quantify customer satisfaction and track progress.Will it work? I’m skeptical. What is the incentive for a customer to go through the additional step of “thanking” their representative? In my experience, it can be difficult to get users and customers to acknowledge that an issue is resolved. So collecting accurate feedback may be an issue.Beyond that, most customer service systems already have some sort of metrics – number of open help desk requests, average resolution time, etc. – and some sort of rewards system. As I’ve written before, there’s not a lot of difference between “gamification” and good management.Fortunately for UserVoice, it doesn’t have to rely entirely on its game mechanics to stay afloat. By charging per admin, instead of per support agent, its pricing is competitive. And if the quality of its help desk product is comparable to its feedback product, it should be a success. But I’m doubtful that gimmicks will ever make customer support jobs any better for those that don’t enjoy it.UserVoice competes with Get Satisfaction in the customer feedback market, and with companies like Assistly, Zendesk and Zoho in the help desk market. klint finley Massive Non-Desk Workforce is an Opportunity fo… Cognitive Automation is the Immediate Future of… 3 Areas of Your Business that Need Tech Now Tags:#enterprise#saas IT + Project Management: A Love Affair Plenty of people have tried to make customer service “fun.” If you’ve ever worked a customer service job, you may have seen a FISH! Training Video. But chances are a video about a bunch of happy-go-lucky fish throwers somewhere in Seattle didn’t make working the swing shift at a call center for minimum wage any better. (Apparently, those videos don’t make the people who actually work at that fish stand very happy either.)This week UserVoice, the idea management/customer feedback software-as-service we’ve raved about, announced that it’s getting into the hosted help desk business. And UserVoice hopes to make customer service fun by adding game mechanics to the help desk. The target audience is different – UserVoice is targeting application support teams, not contact centers – but the idea is the same: to make customer service fun.last_img read more
