Casemiro guides leaders Real through Athletic test

first_imgBy Richard MartinBARCELONA, (Reuters)-Real Madrid went five points clear a the top of La Liga after coming through a testing game at Athletic Bilbao to win 2-1 thanks to Brazilian midfield lynchpin Casemiro’s strike on Saturday.Karim Benzema fired Real ahead in the 25th minute with an exquisite first-time finish from a Cristiano Ronaldo cross after Casemiro had begun the move with a clever long ball from the halfway line.Athletic worked hard to get back into the game and, after Real keeper Keylor Navas produced a brilliant save to deny Inaki Williams, veteran striker Aritz Aduriz headed the home side level from close range in the 65th minute.Casemiro restored Real’s lead in the 68th, however, by controlling a Ronaldo’s flicked header from a corner and calmly taking his time to tuck the ball into the net from close range thanks to some careless defending.Real lead on 65 points from second-placed Barcelona, who have also played 27 games and host Valencia today.last_img read more

Little Silver Ball Fields Upgraded With $250K Grant

first_imgBy Chris Rotolo |LITTLE SILVER – When the boys and girls of summer take the field this season, they’ll do so on revitalized borough ball fields.According to Doug Glassmacher, Little Silver’s director of recreation, a $250,000 parks and recreation grant awarded annually by Monmouth County has helped borough officials refurbish baseball and softball diamonds at Sickles Field and Borough and Library Fields.“The fencing was old, the dugouts and bleachers needed upgrades, and the drainage of the fields was a big issue that needed to be addressed,” Glassmacher said. “These are fields that hadn’t been upgraded in more than 30 years. So it was our goal to make some long-lasting improvements to them.”Sickles Field is located next to Sickles Market, at 200 Rumson Road. The Little Silver Borough and Library Fields can be found behind CVS and Borough Hall, at 480 Prospect Ave.Glassmacher confirmed that the aged and rusted galvanized fencing surrounding these Little Silver facilities has been replaced with new black vinyl coated materials. For Glassmacher, the most significant of those upgrades are the new concrete pathways leading into the dugouts and nearby bleachers, making the fields more accessible and comfortable for special needs fans and athletes.“The handicap accessible pathways were something we were really pushing for. We have such a large special needs population in our area, and all over the county. So this was a very necessary upgrade, and one we were going to push for even if we didn’t get this grant.” “The recreation improvements have been a long time coming,” Little Silver Mayor Robert C. Neff Jr. said. “We have a really dedicated recreation committee in town, who brought their concerns to us, so we looked for opportunities. That’s when Doug and our Borough Administrator Kim Jungfer went to work and got us the grants from the county. And with that we’ve been able to make some really significant upgrades.” New dugouts with covers are now in place, while a newly purchased high-quality clay mixture has been used to enhance the condition of the infield.State-of-the-art drainage systems have also been installed at the fields to combat the underground streams beneath Sickles Field and Borough and Library Fields.Glassmacher said that Challenger Field, accessiblefrom Willow Drive, has also been equipped with a new drainage mechanism to keep over flow from the nearby wetlands at bay. Glassmacher said the grant award was due much in part to the formation of a master plan by the recreation committee – a document produced by Suburban Consulting Engineers, Inc. of Wall Township – which allowed the borough to take inventory of its athletic fields and recreational facilities.The planning document also makes suggestions on upgrades, which the recreation director says gives the borough’s grant requests more credence in the eyes of the county.“The planning document does provide us a little bit of a wish list in terms of upgrades, so each year we apply for more grants we can reference the master plan, which gives the applications more credibility. And we plan on applying for them every year moving forward. We may not be awarded each year, but the master plan displays a clear vision of what funding would accomplish.”The article was first published in the May 10-17, 2018 print edition of The Two River Times.last_img read more

South African sisters ride for rhinos

first_img10 July 2015Two sisters from Cape Town, Vanessa and Victoria Wiesenmaier, are cycling 6 000km from China to Singapore to save rhinos. They set off in April, and yesterday were speeding along the Mekong.They have called their campaign Buy No Rhino, taken from the Wildaid slogan: “When the buying stops, the killing can too.”“We will be travelling through Vietnam, China and Thailand, the main consumer markets driving the demand for rhino horn,” say the sisters. “Especially in these countries we want to reach the people! Even if we cannot change a whole culture, we will sow a seed of change.”Only with demand reduction will the rhino have a chance of survival, say Vanessa (30) and Victoria (35).Extinction threatThe two African rhino species, the black rhino and the white rhino, are threatened by poaching. If the development of the past years continues it is expected that the rhino will become extinct in the near future. The war against rhino poaching will be won in Asia, not in Africa, they say of their decision to take the fight to the market.The poaching of rhinos has reached a crisis point, they say. Designed to raise awareness of the plight of the rhino, the Buy No Rhino Bike Tour, is taking the sisters through China, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Thailand, Malaysia and, finally, Singapore. Along the way, they are urging consumers to stop buying rhino horn.Vietnam, China and Thailand are the main consumer markets for rhino horn. For their campaign, the Wiesenmaiers are working with Project Rhino KZN, partners of the Kingsley Holgate Foundation, to educate youth in hopes of curbing the demand for rhino horn.In Vietnam, the sisters teamed-up with Operation Game Change, a joint alliance between the governments of the United States and Vietnam aimed at ending wildlife crime, especially rhino horn.Save our rhinosThey give presentations at various stages along the way, promoting discussion on rhino poaching, rhino horn trafficking and how to stop the global urgent issue. They are also rolling out a Rhino Art project at schools and collecting signatures for the World Youth Wildlife Declaration, which will be presented to the Cites 2016 summit in Cape Town.According to the South African Department of Environmental Affairs, the number of rhinos poached in South Africa is spiking, with 1 215 poached in 2014 – up from 1 004 in 2013 and 668 in 2012. Operation Game Change says this is a rise from just 122 rhinos poached five years earlier.The Wiesenmaiers said the poaching of rhinoceroses was gruesome, Voice of America reported. Poachers tranquilised the animal and then cut off the horn. When the rhino woke up it slowly bled to death.In Asia, consumers buy horn products they believe cure everything from cancer to hangovers. At tens of thousands of dollars per kilogram, the horns are a luxury item sometimes given to bosses and officials. “To know that these animals are killed for pure greed and money, for some funny belief that the horn is a status symbol, that’s a tragedy,’ said Victoria.Personal issueSpeaking from the Laos-Vietnam border, she told Voice of America the issue was personal. A friend in South Africa had four of the six rhinos on his reservation slaughtered; he decided to leave the carcasses out so that people could see the results of poaching.“We saw live rhinos before that, so to see this crumbled, dead thing, it was really shocking, it was disgusting.”Vietnam is the biggest consumer of rhino horns in the world, and on their journey, Vanessa and Victoria are targeting schools, where they give a presentation about the harms of the horn trade, hold a discussion and then have students create artwork on the topic.It is hoped the children will be more open-minded and pass on the message to their parents. Vietnamese businessmen, celebrities, and state officials are “the strongest driver of the current rhino poaching crisis”, according to a 2013 report by wildlife group Traffic.South Africa and Vietnam are the key countries involved in the supply and demand sides of the rhino trade, respectively.SAinfo reporterlast_img read more

Career in sports

first_imgThe India-Pakistan cricket match during the T20 world cup this year brought the country to a stand still. Work came to a halt and all people could talk about was the match. A few days later when the Indian team lifted the world cup, there was a sense of euphoria,The India-Pakistan cricket match during the T20 world cup this year brought the country to a stand still. Work came to a halt and all people could talk about was the match. A few days later when the Indian team lifted the world cup, there was a sense of euphoria and victory in the nation. Celebrations went on for days and it felt like we had won a war. Such is the importance of sports in our country.Though it is true that cricket is more popular than other sports, but with the exceptionally good performance of the Indian contingent at the Commonwealth Games in 2010, other sports are seen in a new light. A career of a sports person is accompanied with its share of glamour and fame but this does not come easy. Focus, hard work and determination are important for a player to excel. Being on top of your game and making sacrifices to reach there are just part of the journey.Developing an interest in a particular sport is important from an early age. Falling in love with the game and enjoying it is key to developing a career in that field. Proper training is required once you realise you want to develop your talent in a particular sport. Apart from facilities, it is crucial to find a good coach at the right age. Once you are on the right track, no one can stop you from turning professional and making a career in this field.This industry has many other opportunities and one can be part of the sports brigade by choosing to work in a sports related field. Opportunities that can be found within both public and private sectors offering sports enthusiasts a place in this dynamic industry. Sports media and marketing, team administration, coaching, sports engineering, sports medicine and nutrition and sports law, are few options to choose from.”We are in-charge of everything outside the game for a sports person, such as, events, media, branding and public appearance. We are the spokesperson for the players we represent and the office for all non sport related matters,” says Latika Khaneja, Director, Collage Sports Management, while discussing a career in sports management. Since this is still a nascent industry, what shape and trajectory of growth it acquires depends on new entrepreneurs that have entered the field and find reasonable space to innovate along the way.Another line of work emerging is the overlap of sports and other professions. One can specialise in a profession, such as, law, medicine and journalism and then focus on sports. Discussing medicine and sports, IPS Oberoi, sports orthopedic, Aretemis Health Institute, Gurgaon, says, “A sports physician can either be a team doctor or a specialised physician. They look after sports injuries. The remuneration depends on their experience. It may range from anything between Rs 5 lakh to Rs 10 lakh per annum.”The advantages of a career related to the sports industry is that you are working with people who are passionate about their work. They are mostly young people looking for a challenge because this industry is still away from the conventional thing to do. As these professions are still evolving and have no set definitions, there is room for innovation and originality. These professions can be pretty lucrative also.But there is a flip side to all this to. Sports is still seen as a nonconventional career. Often, youngsters come in only for the glamour and not for the hard work. Finding promising sports persons who are committed and dedicated, is also a challenge. Players and games usually have their share of ups and downs with long lull periods. This being a young industry is highly competitive and keeps one on their toes.The best way to enter any of these fields and decide what you want to specialise in, is to seek a sports-related internship. In the sports industry, internships are critical to young professionals seeking their first job in sports.Today some of the smartest young minds are engaged in sports and sports related activities. An eye for detail, commitment, hard work, efficiency, honesty and the willingness to excel are a prerequisite for anyone wanting to make it big in this industry. All game Mangte Chungneijang Mary Kom, 28, World Boxing Champion.With an inborn passion for sports and a desire to follow your dreams, a career as a sports person can be very lucrative but full of challenges. To excel in this highly competitive career one has to be on top of their game and be prepared to beat all odds. “Being a sports person keeps you healthy, earns you honour and fame. But, at the same time, one has to work very hard, make sacrifices and sometimes even miss out on spending time with family and friends,” says Mary Kom, boxer. Training and acquiring skills are very important in this field. One should choose a specialisation and start working on it from an early age. A number of institutes in India provide training in different sports. Aspirants with sporting abilities can join these institutes after completing their schooling. Excelling in this field and accomplishing your goals gets you a lot of fame and popularity but one has to be prepared for the hard work and sacrifices. The work hours are very long and include Saturdays, Sundays and even holidays. ” If you are gifted and on track don’t give up. You will excel in life,” adds Kom.advertisementadvertisementlast_img read more

Mount Salem Recommended Itself – PM

first_img Prime Minister, the Most Hon. Andrew Holness, says the Mount Salem community in St. James “recommended itself” as a Zone of Special Operations (ZOSO).Addressing a press conference at Jamaica House on Friday (Sept. 1) to announce the first ZOSO, the Prime Minister said the Jamaica Defence Force (JDF) and the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) requested the operations in Mount Salem based on the trend of criminal activity in the community and its environs.According to information provided by the police, some 12 gangs are operating in the area, which has recorded 54 murders since the start of the year, 16 in the Crawford Street district alone.In 2014, there were 46 murders in the area, with the figure increasing to 70 in 2015, and 85 in 2016.“Mount Salem recommends itself when you look at the murder statistics as one variable, ” Mr. Holness said.The operations in the area, which began on September 1, will last for 60 days.Major Godfrey Sterling of the JDF and Superintendent of Police, Kirk Ricketts are jointly in charge of operations in the Mount Salem special zone.Managing Director of the Jamaica Social Investment Fund (JSIF), Omar Sweeny has been named Deputy Chairman of the Social Intervention Committee, which is to be established within five working days.The Prime Minister said the operations will seek to dismantle all the gangs and create a safe community.He said that the success of the operations will be determined by the reduction in murders, the return of public order, entrenchment of the community-building exercise “and a general determination that the community is now in a state where it can manage its own peace.”He noted that if the objectives are not achieved, the law provides for the extension of operations following approval by Parliament.The Prime Minister said that other zones will be declared in short order.The Law Reform (Zones of Special Operations) (Special Security and Community Development Measures Act) provides for crime-fighting and community development initiatives in communities where a zone operates.

Secret Avro Arrow test model found in Lake Ontario for the first

first_imgTORONTO – A somewhat beaten-up test model used in the development of Canada’s much vaunted but secretive Avro Arrow fighter jet has been found covered in zebra mussels upside down on the bottom of Lake Ontario, expedition leaders announced Friday.The tantalizing discovery of the model, between 30 and 60 metres underwater, is the first such find since the federal government killed the Arrow program in 1959, sparking a bitter debate about the demise of what was once considered one of the most advanced combat jets in the world.“It wasn’t just about finding something lost: For generations, the Arrow story has fascinated many of us and has become something dear to many Canadians,” said John Burzynski, CEO of Osisko Mining and expedition leader. “It lingers in the Canadian psyche as to what this could have been.”The find is especially significant because the aircraft themselves, along with almost everything associated in producing them, were ordered destroyed when the program was scrapped, throwing thousands of people out of work. In addition, everything about the jet and its development was classified.“This was all a secret program that nobody knew was going on when it was going on,” Burzynski said. “Unfortunately, a lot of the records are partial and spotty.”Explorers with the OEX Recovery Group spent two weeks spread out of the last several months searching for the free-flight models used as part of final design testing of the Arrow off Point Petre, south of Belleville, Ont., between 1955 and 1957.Using a remote operated vehicle and sonar imagery, they found booster rockets used to launch the models, enabling them to narrow the search area and leading to the discovery. Explorers believe the recovered Arrow free-flight model — one of nine believed to be in the lake — is one of the later versions.Photographs and video indicate the nose was bent or damaged on impact, said David Shea, with Kraken Sonar Systems. However, one of the characteristic triangular wings of the one-eighth scale model — about three metres long by two metres wide — is fully intact, and some of the paint appears to have survived, he said.The plan now, besides searching for the other eight models underwater, is to try to get divers down to remove some of the mussels and inspect the find more closely as part of plans to bring it to the surface.Expedition archeologist, Scarlett Janusas, said recovery will be delicate to ensure no further damage is done. The plan is to excavate around the model and build a cradle to get it to the surface, where it will have to be put into a container and kept wet.It will then require cleaning and stabilizing to ready it for display, either in the Canada Aviation Space Museum in Ottawa or National Air Force Museum in Trenton, Ont.The program to develop and build Canada’s first and only supersonic interceptor, just as the Cold War began roaring to life, was aimed at countering potential Soviet bomber attacks in North America’s Arctic.The reason the Conservative government of then-prime minister John Diefenbaker cancelled the Arrow — as attention turned toward defending against the emerging threat of an intercontinental missile strike — has been the subject of years of speculation.What’s clear is that the decision, branded by some as Canada’s worst research and development disaster — prompted many who worked on the program to head to the U.S., and ended the country’s military jet development ambitions.Burzynski refused to wade in the debate around the wisdom of a decision he said must have left the “bitter taste of defeat” in the mouths of those who had worked on the showcase program. But one thing, he said, is certain:“The Russians did not sneak into Lake Ontario and pick up the models back in the ’50s like a lot of people thought they did.”last_img read more
