first_imgWESTERN BUREAU:Clarendon College were left with a bittersweet taste in their mouths after defeating Rusea’s High 2-0, but still had the daCosta Cup title ripped from their grasp in dramatic fashion, as Dinthill Technical advanced to the semi-finals as group winners with a comprehensive win of their own.Dinthill made light work of Glenmuir High in yesterday’s second match of a double-header at the Juici Field, winning 3-0 to take the top spot with seven points, one better than the outgoing champions, who were hoping for a Glenmuir victory, or a draw in that game to keep their title defence alive.It was not to be, however, as the north St Catherine-based school eased to what, in the end, was a fine victory, to vindicate the technical staff’s early-season belief that they will be among the top schools at the end of the competition and retain a great chance to land their first daCosta Cup title since 1981.BITTERENDThe result is a bitter end to what began as a promising campaign for Clarendon College – under the guidance of Paul ‘Tegat’ Davis – and although it ended as it began with a win, their opening quarter-final-round loss to this same Dinthill team meant they would have to stage a miraculous comeback.At Frome Sports Complex, it was Lennon who stole the show with a hard-fought 3-0 win over Petersfield High to advance from Group Q.Two goals from Rushane Grant in the 20th and 56th minutes, respectively, and a beast of a free kick from Jason Johnson in time added to the second-half propelled the Merron Gordon-coached team into the semis.”That last goal was beautiful; we played well against this tough Petersfield team and we are proud to have come so far to Westmoreland and win,” said Gordon.”It gets even harder for us now, but we are confident of what we are capable of and we look forward to the semi-finals,” Gordon added.Manchester High also advanced yesterday, edging St James High 1-0 at Jarrett Park to move to six points, thus ending the hopes of the brave Lacovia High, who were held to a 1-1 draw by Paul Bogle High.Last year’s beaten finalists St Elizabeth Technical High School (STETHS) need only a draw in their game later this afternoon at home against Manning’s to advance, while Vere Technical will tackle Marcus Garvey High at Wembly Community Field to see which qualify to the last four.Semi-finalists Manchester, Lennon and Dinthill could be joined by STETHS.Yesterday’s Resultsn Manchester 1, St James 0n Glenmuir 0, Dinthill 3n Petersfield 0, Lennon 3n Port Antonio 3, Seaforth 6n Lacovia 1, Paul Bogle 1n Clarendon 2, Rusea’s 0Today’s gamesn STETHS vs Manningsn Vere vs Marcus Garveylast_img read more

first_imgDeciding not to sit back, Narain-Mohan began using her skills as an educator to teach her community how to engage and seek answers for their social problems. The centres also offered beauty and detoxing services for the first time in these areas, all contributing to a “feel good about yourself” lifestyle in previously disadvantaged communities. Education: Roslyn Narain-Mohan Janet Buckland – known simply as “Mama J” to the communities she works with in the Eastern Cape – has been responsible for the initiation and creation of a significant number of successful arts and culture projects in the province. With a PhD degree in visual performance training, Calder is a pioneer in this field and has created an exciting new sport science that is sought after by international coaches looking to bring an extra dimension to their game. Seven category winners and an overall winner were announced at the gala event, which will be broadcast by SABC 2 at 8pm on National Women’s Day, 9 August 2008. Other researchers have expanded on her work, and some of her micro-economic studies have been used in macro-economic modelling. The new science is based on the thinking that nothing happens in sport until the eye tells the body what to do. Calder first developed the technique she calls “Eyethink” in order to improve her own hockey game. Since its inception almost six years ago, Ubom! has reached audiences totalling more than 178 000. It also has provided 36 full-time contracts for actors to work in the Eastern Cape. Buckland raises the funds to sustain it herself. South Africa’s premier accolade for achievement by women has gone to Janet Buckland, who was named Shoprite Checkers/ SABC2 Woman of the Year 2008 at a dazzling event in celebration of the women of South Africa in Cape Town on 31 July. Ten years ago, Dr Veni Naidu gave up a high-powered and lucrative career in the corporate world in order to make a meaningful contribution to South Africa’s development. Consulting to the pediatric department of the Johannesburg Hospital, Jacklin acts as an “ombudsman” for such children, who do not fit into mainline education and struggle to fulfil their potential as they tend to be misdiagnosed and mistreated. She has created 41 jobs for women in these communities, developed some managerial positions to run the centres, and outsourced services such as accounting, laundry and security to local businesses. She represented South Africa in hockey between 1982 and 1996, gaining 50 international field hockey caps and 15 indoor caps. In 1995 she was selected to a team comprising the top 11 players in a pre-Olympic qualifying tournament. Professor Claire Penn was awarded South Africa’s Order of Mapungubwe in 2007 for her contribution to the field of speech and language pathology – especially in linguistics, sign language, child language and aphasia – and for groundbreaking research into the complexities of human communication. Business: Thabang Molefi Molefi’s next aim is to branch out into franchising in order to create more business and job opportunities. Besides the seven other centres she established in Gauteng, Kwazulu-Natal and the Free State, Molefi set up a mobile unit to visit communities in remote rural areas in the rest of the country. Roslyn Narain-Mohan, a teacher at the New West Secondary School in Durban, has become the “Mother Theresa” of her community, launching campaign after campaign to tackle virtually every form of social injustice affecting them.

See: Using SAinfo material Professor Sherylle Calder is a visual performance skills coach and world authority on the subject who has received back-to-back World Cup winners’ medals after training both the triumphant Springboks in 2007 and the English World Cup winners in 2003.center_img The winners in the seven categories – business, education, health, science and technology, social welfare, sport, and arts, culture and communications – each received R10 000 in prize money, while Buckland took home R30 000 as the overall winner. Health: Lorna Barbara Jacklin Professor Lorna Barbara Jacklin, principal consultant paediatrician at Wits University’s faculty of health sciences, has dedicated her life to improving the lives of children with mental health problems caused by physical disabilities or abuse. She combined her understanding of the value of the arts, particularly theatre, in the lives of all South Africans with her skills as a performer, director, fundraiser and administrator to direct these projects over a number of years. Today, the Roots Healthcare Centre business has branches in three South African provinces and a neighbouring country and boasts a multi-million rand turnover. Science and technology: Claire Penn Narain-Mohan’s community is a microcosm of a broader community affected by HIV/Aids, crime, racial conflict, poverty, age and individual suffering. Penn sees communication – a capacity which is complex, vulnerable and both a science and an art – as being at the heart of the human endeavour. For her, it can forge and sustain relationships but can equally be the main reason for breakdowns in understanding between individuals and communities. Social welfare: Veni Naidu Thabang Molefi is a qualified ethno-medical practitioner and beauty therapist who, with the little savings she had at the time, opened the first health spa in Soweto six years ago. The most notably project is Ubom! the Eastern Cape Drama Company, which was the first full-time professional drama company in the province. It brings theatre presentations and drama workshops to thousands of people in schools and communities all over the Eastern Cape. Sport: Sherylle Calder 8 August 2008 Untreated, mental health problems rob such children of a fair chance in life, translating into developmental and social problems as they grow into anti-social adults incapable of functioning independently. In her daily teaching and actions she encourages her pupils to seek solutions – which, for her, mean not just reaching out, but also identifying and understanding people’s real needs and the kind of support that would help people to help themselves in the long term. Arts, culture & communications (and overall winner) Naidu has received a doctorate for her groundbreaking research into the impact of HIV/Aids on businesses, families and communities. While most studies at the time focused on the medical aspects of HIV/Aids, Naidu investigated the economic and social impacts of the pandemic, completing the first study in South Africa on the impact HIV/Aids on income-earning urban households. Molefi’s pioneering centres introduced affordable health care to black communities through the use of the different but effective technique of iridology for diagnosis and herbs as prescribed medicines.last_img read more

Photo: PTIRain took some sheen off Kane Williamson’s record batting display of scoring the fastest ever century in Champions League Twenty20 as New Zealand side Northern Knights defeated Cape Cobras of South Africa by 33 runs under Duckworth-Lewis method in Raipur on Friday.Opening batsman Williamson produced a sensational show as he batted through the innings with a 49-ball 101 not out, the first hundred of this edition, to guide his side to a huge total of 206 for five after being put into bat.Chasing a huge target of 207 for a win, the Cobras struggled to get going and they were 44 for two when rain arrived at the Shaheed Veer Narayan Singh International Stadium.Rain continued and after a long wait, the umpires decided to end the Group B match and the Knights emerged victorious under the D/L method.As five overs had been completed before the rain came, the match was counted as complete and the par score under D/L method at that stage was 77.The Knights kept their winning momentum in the tournament as they had won all their three qualifying round matches.The Cobras run chase began on a disastrous note with their opening batsman Stiaan Van Zyl (0) dismissed in the first delivery of the innings bowled by Trent Boult.The other opener Hashim Amla (20) tried to keep his side on track but the asking rate kept on rising and he fell in the sixth over in his bid to accelerate the innings.advertisementRobin Peterson and Omphile Ramela were batting on 17 and four respectively when rain came in the eighth over, though the Cobras were looking down the barrel at that stage as the asking rate had risen over 12 an over.last_img read more

first_img 8 Billing (s 77′) BRI68HUD32% David Wagner was unhappy with Michael Oliver: “We have to accept the referee’s decision and he thought it was a red card,” the Huddersfield manager said. “The next big decision was a clear penalty on Alex Pritchard and a red card because it was a clear chance. “All the big ones against us he got wrong. This is why at the moment football is no fun. Absolutely no fun. The referee has a big part to play and I don’t think he did his best. Even if he didn’t mean to.”Chris Hughton said: “It is difficult when you are the team with 11 men but we made the extra man show and Florin Andone’s goal was excellent. It is an important three points away from home.”The hosts charged out of the blocks and went 1-0 up after 55 seconds – the quickest goal in the Premier League this season. Brighton’s Spanish defender Bruno made a hash of his attempted clearance and after the ball looped back into the penalty area, Jørgensen headed in off the crossbar.

Not for the first time March delivered an excellent cross and Andone got in front of his marker to head home at the near post.
