first_imgWish List for Super Rugby Round 5 AlphaCuteOprah’s New House Cost $90 Million, And This Is What It Looks LikeAlphaCute|SponsoredSponsoredUndo Published on February 27, 2020 The SA Rugby magazine team identify what they would love to see come out of this weekend’s Vodacom Super Rugby matches.Craig Lewis (editor) is hoping the Stormers and Sharks continue to lead the South African charge.There was understandable concern leading into this season that there could be a World Cup ‘hangover’, with a number of top Springboks heading abroad and depleting the Super Rugby player stocks available to local sides.It has been a difficult start to the campaigns of the Vodacom Bulls and Lions, but the Sharks and Stormers have superbly maintained that SA rugby winning feeling from last year.Having already downed the Highlanders and Rebels on tour, the Sharks will put themselves in a powerful position if they can overcome the Reds this Saturday before returning to Durban for a run of home games.The Stormers have made the most of a favourable schedule and settled squad on a four-match winning run, and it does appear that the two coastal rivals will be strong contenders for SA conference honours this year.It’s great news for South African rugby, especially considering both teams are playing an impressive, well-balanced brand of effective rugby that combines both brains and brawn.COLUMN: Stormers, Sharks channel RWC BoksJon Cardinelli (chief writer) wants the South African collective to complete a clean sweep against foreign opposition.The Vodacom Bulls got agonisingly close to breaking their duck last week. If not for a last-minute penalty goal by Blues flyhalf Otere Black, the Bulls would have registered their first win in 2020 and South Africa’s teams would’ve finished the round with a perfect three-from-three record.Is it unrealistic to expect a clean sweep this weekend? The Lions have enjoyed success against the Waratahs in Australia in the past. The Sharks should fancy their chances against the Reds, while the Stormers should be too strong for the Blues at Newlands. The Bulls will be going all out to prove a point when they host the Jaguares at Loftus Versfeld.I suspect that a young Lions side will struggle in Australia. I hope that they will prove me wrong and that all four SA teams will record a win.Dylan Jack (staff writer) hopes Jamba Ulengo provides a reminder of his ability.Friday’s match between the Lions and Waratahs will be a special one for Ulengo as he is set to make his first Vodacom Super Rugby start since 2018.It has been a long road back for the 30-year-old, whose once-promising career has been riddled with knee injuries. It is a well-known story now that during his time with the Bulls, Ulengo visited a Swedish doctor after suffering from patellar tendinopathy, more commonly known as jumper’s knee.Ulengo found himself in the rugby wilderness after not having his contract extended at the Bulls and in 2019 he was playing Rugby Challenge games for the Free State XV.However, now that he is back in Super Rugby, Ulengo will be keen to show the form that made him a Springbok in 2016. There is no better place to start than shining in Sydney.*Follow us on our new Instagram journey by clicking hereMariette Adams (staff writer) wants Nafi Tuitavake to help the Vodacom Bulls get a maiden victory.The Bulls are on a barren three-game losing streak, which they are desperate to snap. They hosts the Jaguares at Loftus this week and the result is either going to be a stunning upset win over the Test-laden Argentinian team or a blowout defeat.Despite criticism from far and wide over his selection policy, coach Pote Human has stuck to his guns and inserted Morne Steyn as the starting flyhalf again, with Manie Libbok providing cover off the bench. But in a surprising move – albeit injury enforced – he picked the New Zealand-born Tongan international Tuitavake at outside centre.The Bulls backline has been static since the start of the season and I’m hoping the inclusion of Tuitavake will spark the backs to life. It is a much-needed switch they simply have to make, if they are to compete with the hard-running Jaguares backline players.I’m hoping we get to see the Bulls finally produce a powerful 80-minute performance to get the desired the result and kick-start their campaign.Photo: Steve Haag Sports/Hollywoodbets GoGoPeak10 Most Beautiful Cities You Should Visit Once In Your LifetimeGoGoPeak|SponsoredSponsoredUndo Lukhanyo Am at training on the Gold Coast Post by SA Rugby magazine World Cup-winning Bok quartet in Eddie Jones’ all-time XVMaverick coach Eddie Jones has named his Test dream team made up of players he has worked with throughout his illustrious career.SA Rugby MagUndoLoans | Search AdsLooking for loan in Hong Kong?

first_imgThere has been no shortage of voices in the London media lamenting the outcome of the U.K.’s referendum on European Union membership. But one publisher still thinks there’s a gap in the market for a publication that speaks for the “48 percent,” those who didn’t vote for Brexit.Archant Media is launching a “pop-up” newspaper that aims to bring together the disgruntled Remain voters who “feel a real sense of loss after the Leave vote victory,” according to a press release.The New European will hit newsstands on July 8, priced at £2 per issue. It is a novel experiment in newspaper publishing: It will initially run for just four issues. Any subsequent print runs will depend on whether there’s enough interest from readers. “There’s no ongoing commitment, just an opportunity to explore new boundaries in newspaper publishing,” Will Hattam, a marketing executive at Archant, said.The first issue will include articles by Tanit Koch, editor of German tabloid Bild, Wolfgang Blau, chief digital officer at Condé Nast International, and Peter Bale, chief executive of the Center for Public Integrity in Washington, among others.Matt Kelly, former publisher of Mirror Group Digital and launch editor of the New European, said he would publish “an eclectic and energetic mix of content,” not just about Brexit but also on European culture and life.last_img read more

She immediately decided to buy energy efficient bulbs for ten families using her own money.Mansi Prakash, now an economics major at New York University, came up with a solution that was simple but effective, one that would go on to change the lives of thousands: sending eco-friendly light bulbs to small villages.“Most families have light bulbs—they just weren’t turning them on and using them,” Prakash told TakePart.  “For someone who couldn’t afford food three times a day, paying the high electricity bills was not an option.”This Lamp Light Burns All Night Powered Only by a Glass of SaltwaterIf they used an 11-watt compact fluorescent bulb instead, which costs about $2 and lasts 3-4 years, residents would save 80% on their energy bills. The money saved could go toward health care, food or education.Being able to turn on lights whenever you need them can give families more hours in the day to be productive, and allow children more time to study.Prakash, who was born in India and raised in the Philippines, has since founded the nonprofit Brighter Today and–with help from the Clinton Foundation–has been distributing energy-efficient bulbs that are donated by electronics giant Philips.To date, her nonprofit has helped bring cheaper electricity to 5,300 homes in rural India.Teenage Girl Turns Plastic Trash Into Million-Dollar BiofuelPrakash is also focused on a new solar project called Light for Life that she hopes will illuminate homes that have no access to electricity. It is another innovative device that brings in daylight with a plastic bottle, bleach and water.(READ more at TakePart) Photos: Brighter Today, FacebookIlluminate Your Friends… (Share Below)AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailEmailShare to RedditRedditRedditShare to MoreAddThisMorelast_img read more

first_imgThe Independent Anti-Doping Disciplinary Panel (IADP) has ruled that sprinter Briana Williams will be reprimanded with no period of ineligibility after her two-day anti-doping hearing earlier this week. The ruling means Williams is now free to join the rest of Jamaica’s track and field team, to which she was provisionally named for the IAAF World Championships which starts in Doha, Qatar on Friday. Williams tested positive for the banned substance hydrochlorothiazide (HCTZ) and faced the IADP to determine whether she was at fault for it being found in her system. She pleaded not guilty in the postive test. A statement released by the IADP on Thursday afternoon says “The IADP is unanimously persuaded to the standard of proof on the evidence presented that the athlete, Miss Briana Williams, was in breach of article 2.1 of the 2015 Anti-Doping Rules as she had in her body a specified substance namely “HCTZ”. “The IADP finds that the athlete has established no significant fault or negligence as she was given tablets by her guardian and had no intention to cheat in her In-Competition sprint event on June 21, 2019. The IADP was referred to article 10.5.1.1 of the Anti-Doping In Sport Rules and this is relied on in its findings. “The IADP recommends that the athlete undergoes another education programme on Anti-Doping In Sports Rules as soon as JADCO carries out same.” More on this story in Friday’s Gleaner.last_img read more

first_imgPEKING CRUZ’s August 1 fifth-place finish behind FATHER PATRICK, a flyer of a sprint at five and a half furlongs, was way better than it appears on paper, which should see him franking the form in his backyard this afternoon at five furlongs straight.Carrying topweight 126lb with Panamanian Dick Cardenas, who abhors the rail at Caymanas Park during any stiff sprint, especially crowded fields, PEKING CRUZ was literally on the brake from the half-mile behind a wall of eight horses.Cardenas made up his mind from three furlongs out that he wanted no part of the rail and angled PEKING CRUZ outside, leaving the two and a half, straightening seven wide of the leaders.Asked to run up the lane, PEKING CRUZ gained on GOD OF LOVE, CORAZON, and BOLD AFLAIR after FATHER PATRICK had flown the coop but was held fifth, relegated by a flying WARTIME, who returned to frank the form two Saturdays ago, beating CRYPTOCURRENCY by a neck.Last Sunday, PEKING CRUZ ran out of steam at six and a half furlongs, worn down on a wet track by mudlark CRYPTOCURRENCY. NOTHING TO COMPLAIN ABOUT Using FATHER PATRICK’s marker race, which has since been franked by WARTIME, followed by CRYPTOCURRENCY, PEKING CRUZ has nothing to complain about, more so at five furlongs straight.Having possibly won a half of his eight races over the straight course, the leggy five-year-old needed only one run off his three-month COVID-19 lay-up before exposing his sharpness at his favourite trip, going down in a driving finish to superfit UNIVERSAL BOSS on July 18.Though NUCLEAR THUNDER was only a half-length behind PEKING CRUZ in his stinging loss to UNIVERSAL BOSS, he was within touching distance of the rail on the stands’ side, breaking from stall 11 in the 12-horse field. PEKING CRUZ was drawn at post-position five. Now drawn alongside each other in a nine-horse field, a much fitter PEKING CRUZ should outclass NUCLEAR THUNDER.ROJORN DI PILOT appeared rather flat with 126lb in the race won by UNIVERSAL BOSS but did seem sharper with the run under his girth, finishing sixth in the FATHER PATRICK marker race. However, he returns as topweight and drawn inside against the course specialist, PEKING CRUZ.RAS EMANUEL and DUNROBIN are decent sprinters. However, post-positions one and three, respectively, make an already difficult task even more onerous against speedsters ROJORN DI PILOT and PEKING CRUZ out in mid-track.
