Adam Beach speaks to staff and students at Northern Lights College

first_imgBeach has been taking part in a number of speaking engagements as of late and the point he is trying to get across to younger people is to stay in pursuit of their given passions.“What I’m trying to promote is dreams. I’m trying to promote to challenge yourself to accomplish whatever that passion is. A lot of my friends from high school regret quitting acting to pursue a career their parents told them to do. When I see them they are so dismissed about leaving because I wasn’t the greatest actor when I started but they were amazing and if you think I’m amazing what could they have been been?”He adds when he was younger he didn’t know how he was going to reach his goal but the bottom line was to set one and to keep working hard to get to his desired point.- Advertisement -“I knew when I was 14 that I was out of here. When? I don’t know. How? I do not know but I’ll tell you what, I was going to Hollywood and nobody was going to stop me. Everybody would laugh when I was on stage but I didn’t see any of the laughter. I saw it as an appreciation and a congratulations for doing what you do because we can’t do it.”Beach currently has his attention focused on bringing movie theatres to small northern communities that will play big time movies at the same time they are released in major cities. His goal with the endeavour is not only to provide entertainment in the venture to to inspire people to get involved with film and acting.last_img read more

KPL decline FKF request to postpone fixtures

first_img“We received a request from FKF on the same but we have declined because it is not an obligation for clubs to release their players. We are running on a very tight schedule and moving the fixtures will only work to congest the calendar further,” Oguda told Capital Sport.He added; “They really have to plan on how they are going to use players. If clubs want to release players then it is under their own violation but games will continue.”The federation had asked matches to be shelved to allow new head coach Sebastien Migne assess his squad having called up a squad of 24 players who are set to report to camp Monday morning.-Formal request“We made a formal request and we will still continue to engage to see whether in the spirit of sportsmanship we can have the games shelved. It is not a must because it is out of the FIFA calendar but we are only hoping we can have an agreement in goodwill,” FKF communications Chief Barry Otieno said.As thus, Migne might have a challenge fielding strong sides in the friendly games against Swaziland and Equatorial Guinea. Most assuredly, he will be without Gor Mahia and AFC Leopards players who play in the Mashemeji Derby on Saturday in Kakamega.Gor Mahia boss Dylan Kerr on Sunday admitted at being in the dark over what exactly will transpire in the coming week.“The coach told me he needs the players in camp on Monday morning and again we have the derby coming up which is a huge game so I don’t know how things will go. If the derby is on, most definitely I will need my best players available,” the coach offered.The squad of 24 players called up on Saturday has seven Gor Mahia players and three from AFC while three more are on the standby list. In total Migne already has 10 players out of the fixture.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Harambee Stars head coach Sebastian Migne leads players in training.
