Clarke demands respect for Albion after victory over Chelsea

first_imgWest Bromwich Albion manager Steve Clarke said it would be unfair to put his side’s 2-1 win over Chelsea down to the visitors making changes to their team.Juan Mata, Oscar and Ramires were all left out of the starting line-up for the game.“It would be wrong to talk about leaving one or two perceived big players out and not how well we did,” the Blues legend said after his side’s 2-1 win.“They have quality players; they leave some out and they put some in.“Teams have to rest players. They have to travel all around the world and playing a lot is difficult for players, especially creative players.”See also:Chelsea slump to defeat at West 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 Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

Butterflies Really Know How to Fly

first_imgThe path of a butterfly may appear haphazard to us, but there is a method to the fluttering.  A UK team of scientists put transponders on butterflies and monitored their flight paths.  They found that the looping paths appear to help with orientation and food detection.  The rest of the time, they flew straight at speeds up to six miles an hour.  They appeared able to detect hazards from 200 meters, and food sources at 100 meters.  See the BBC News story for more information.    MSNBC News reported that the largest migration of painted lady butterflies is underway in California.  From the southern desert and coastal areas, they fly through the Central Valley and some make it all the way to Oregon.  See also the press release from UC Davis.What kind of engineering and programming must a tiny butterfly brain possess to engage in navigation, orienteering, and long distance flight?  The most delicate of small creatures shows capabilities that would stump robotics experts.  Help your kids appreciate not just the beauty but the technical abilities of these beautifully-decorated small wonders.(Visited 6 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Skills, jobs boost for rural youth

first_imgIntensive training programme Mohoebi said successful candidates would undergo an intensive training programme, based on needs identified during the induction, and would receive a monthly stipend for the two-year duration of the programme. Potential candidates seeking more information about the programme can contact the department’s toll-free number 0800 007 095 or visit the Department of Rural Development and Land Reform website. Sustainable rural communities The National Rural Youth Service Corps (NARYSC), recently launched by the Department of Rural Development and Land Reform, will target people in South Africa’s remotest rural areas, including those living with disabilities, who are between the ages of 18 to 35 and who have passed Grade 10. The department’s head of communications, Eddie Mohoebi, said the NARYSC is a two-year programme aimed at empowering rural youngsters from each of the 3 000 rural wards across the country. Mohoebi added that the job creation and skills development programme was in line with the department’s rural development mandate to create vibrant, equitable and sustainable rural communities throughout South Africa. “The recently developed NARYSC will complement the department’s job creation model, which targets and ensures that at least one person per household in the rural areas where the Comprehensive Rural Development Programme (CRDP) is being piloted, gets employed for two years with an employment linked to skills training,” he said. 19 July 2010 The South African government aims to create up to 10 000 job opportunities in the country’s rural areas through the National Rural Youth Service Corps, which will see unemployed youngsters being put to work in their communities after undergoing an intensive two-year training programme. He said the programme is expected to create job opportunities for at least three youths in each of those identified rural wards. After the completion of the two-year training programme, candidates will work in their communities providing services in local socio-economic development. Source: BuaNewslast_img read more

Hapur lynching: petitioners can approach trial court, says Supreme Court

first_imgThe Supreme Court on Tuesday gave petitioners in the Hapur lynching case liberty to approach the trial court and draw its attention to statements made by two brothers of the victim before a chief judicial magistrate about the brutal crime allegedly committed by cow vigilantes in June last year.A Vacation Bench led by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi told advocate Vrinda Grover, counsel for petitioner and witness Samaydeen, that instead of directing the Uttar Pradesh police to file a supplementary chargesheet, it would be “appropriate” to permit the petitioners to directly apprise the trial court about the statements made by the brothers, Saleem and Nadeem, under Section 164 of the Code of Criminal Procedure before the Hapur chief judicial magistrate on May 15.Saleem and Nadeem are the brothers of Qasim Qureishi, a 45-year-old meat trader, who died after he took a severe beating along with Samaydeen from cow vigilantes on June 18, last year.The duo were assaulted on the pretext that they were transporting and butchering cows.In August, the Supreme Court had refused to buy the police version that the lynching was a “road rage” incident which turned fatal. The statements made by Samaydeen and some others before the magistrate had shown the case in its true light — a mob lynching premised on a false rumour of cow slaughter.The video footage of the lynching and an expose by the NDTV channel in which one of the accused allegedly talked about the assault and even denying water to one of them had created a furore.last_img read more

Tendulkar most accomplished World Cup player: Imran

first_imgLegendary Pakistani fast bowler Imran Khan on Tuesday refused to compare Sachin Tendulkar with Don Bradman but said the Indian maestro was the “most accomplished player in the World Cup”.Imran declined to compare Tendulkar with Bradman as he had not seen the Australian playing.”Sachin is the most accomplished player in the World Cup. He should open Indian innings and with Virender Sehwag. They can give solid start to the team which will be difficult for other teams to match,” Imran said.He said Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s squad is the best ever Indian World Cup side and it has the most formidable batting line-up among the teams participating in this edition starting in the sub-continent on Saturday.”I played the first World Cup in 1975 and have been following it since then. According to me this is the best ever Indian side playing in a World Cup,” said Pakistan’s 1992 World Cup-winning captain.”This is the best batting line-up in the world. You have Sachin, Sehwag, MS Dhoni, Yusuf Pathan and the batting depth will play a crucial role,” he told a TV channel.He predicted that Harbhajan Singh will be the key bowler for India given the conditions, and if he were the captain he would have asked the off-spinner to play the attacking bowler’s role.Asked about the Indian pace battery, the former all-rounder said, “When I saw Ishant Sharma bowling initially, I felt that at last India has got a genuine pace bowler who can run through any batting order. But two years since then when I saw him, I could see flaw in his bowling action.”advertisementWith inputs from PTIlast_img read more
