With regards to the game been pushed back, Reynolds said they welcomed that decision. “We would have been aware of the situation that we had three games in four days. We have been doing what we can in order for the players to recuperate for each game. It is difficult for the schools that are still in the Super Cup with the tight schedule of games,” Reynolds also said. In the opening game, both teams will look to rebound from their losses last Thursday, and stay in contention for a semi-final spot. Haile Selassie and St Catherine met in the preliminary stage twice with each team winning 1-0. It’s left to be seen if the off-the-field issues involving coach Geoffrey Maxwell with whom they parted ways last week will affect Haile Selassie. They are yet to hire a new coach. St George’s College and Wolmer’s will be engaged in a mega clash in the ISSA/FLOW Manning Cup competition Group K today at Constant Spring Complex. Match time is 3 p.m. The game is the feature in the group’s double-header as Haile Selassie High face-off against St Catherine in the opener at 1 p.m. The games were originally scheduled for Monday, but was pushed back due to the constant usage of the venue. Wolmer’s and St George’s come into the game on three points apiece, however, Wolmer’s hold the advantage with a better goal difference. The game is crucial to both teams as a win for either would put that team into a good position to win the group and advance to the semi-finals. Wolmer’s will be playing their third game in five days, following their 3-0 win against St Catherine High last Thursday and their elimination of Kingston College (1-0) in a FLOW Super Cup quarter-final game last Saturday. The Vassell Reynolds- coached team has built a reputation for its meagre defence and incisive counterattacks, a threat that their opponents will have to be wary of. St George’s College are coming off a come-from-behind 2-1 win against Haile Selassie in the group last Thursday and are fully aware of the importance of today’s game. Marcel Gayle, assistance coach of St George’s College is expecting a tough encounter. “The game can decide the group. It is one of those games that no team can afford to lose,” Gayle told The Gleaner yesterday. He also said that although Wolmer’s will be playing three games in four days, it could work to the Heroes Circle based team’s advantage. “Winning can be a momentum for Wolmer’s. We will be prepared and hopefully finish the game with a victory,” he added. Reynolds, however, has a different outlook, arguing that his team will face a rested St George’s College, which he considers a big challenge. “We need to win the game to put one foot in the semi-final. We want to put things in our own hands. St George’s is still a favourite as they have a good team. They will be fresh and that is a challenge, but our team is ready for the game,” Reynolds shared.

Developers should make sure their applications are compatible with Android O before the consumer launch. “Android O introduces several new features and APIs, and includes changes that can affect the behavior of your app even if you change nothing,” Google wrote. When testing applications, Google notes developers should look out for background limits, networking changes, security issues and identifiers.If developers want to enhance their existing apps with the latest features and APIs, Android O features themes like Fluid Experiences and Vitals. In addition, it provides ways to surface new content, multitask, and add adaptive icons. Other ways to prepare for Android O include: using Google Play’s best testing feature and updating to Android Studio 3.0. Google is one step closer to releasing its latest operating system, Android O. The company started rolling out the third developer preview this week with final Android O APIs, updated system images and improvements to Android Studio. “Now that the APIs are final, you can publish APK updates compiling with, and optionally targeting, API 26 to your alpha, beta, or even production channels in Google Play. Publishing your O-targeted app during the preview lets you test compatibility on existing devices and push updates to devices running API 26 — such as users who are enrolled in the Android Beta program,” Dave Burke, VP of engineering for Google, wrote in a post.The consumer release of Android O is expected later this summer. The company plans to release one more preview next month with near-final system images.
