GFC, Pouderoyen secure wins

Posted on by

first_imgNext to compete were GFC and Buxton Stars. Either team seemed level headed at the beginning of the encounter, opting for a “knock ball” style of play.Buxton were on top of the world after striking their first goal, which came from Shamar Scott in the 21st minute. But their joy was short-lived, as GFC got their groove on.Alberto Basanta was the first GFC player to get the scoreboard ticking in the 35th minute, with a sneaky one. The rest of the first half passed quietly.With the score one all, both teams tried restlessly to one-up the opponent, but only GFC was successful at this.In the 75th minute Ronald Rodrigues got his piece of the pie, and three minutes later, Rondel Peters showed up to the scoring party. The score was then already enough to win them the encounter, but in the 85th minute Marcus Wilson added salt to Buxton’s wounds as he pushed his team to a 4-1 victory.The Limacol action will continue on Tuesday, September 18, with Riddim Squad and Buxton Stars facing off at 18:00 hrs. Then, at 20:00hrs, Santos FC and Beacon FC will compete for points.All matches are being played at the Ministry of Education Ground on Carifesta Avenue. Limacol Knockout Football Tournament…The Limacol Knockout Football tournament continued over the past weekend with a massive double-header in which, in a series of twists and thrills that left the vociferous crowd satisfied at the end of the night’s proceedings, Pouderoyen defeated Grove Hi-Tec 2 – 1 and Georgetown Football Club (GFC) trounced Buxton Stars 4 – 1, to truly show that only time can tell the final outcome of this tournament.Pouderoyen and Grove Hi Tec were both looking for wins in the competition, and their intent was fully expressed on field with both sides’ playing an attacking style of play. In a game filled with trips, flips and appeals, Denzil Crawford was able to place his team in a comfortable position with a one goal advantage in the 13th minute.Already having a goal to their name, Grove Hi Tec continuPart of the action at the Ministry of Education Grounded to play in a desperate hunt for the second; and as time elapsed, desperation got the better of them and the players seemed to slack up, leaking opportunities to the opposing team.Pouderoyen wasted no time in capitalising, sinking their first goal in the 65thminute off the boots of Sebastian Edwards. The shock took a toll on Grove Hi Tec, as Ashley Harding came through for his team as he did in their previous match, with a goal in the 70th minute. The encounter ended 2-1 in The West Coast team’s favour.last_img read more

FAMILY CONTACT AUTHORITIES AFTER DISCOVERY OF HORNET IN DONEGAL GARDEN

Posted on by

first_imgThe hornet found yesterday in Carndonagh.A Donegal couple have contacted the Gardai and the Department of Agriculture after discovering a large hornet in their back garden.The shocked couple from Carndonagh made the discovery yesterday.They fear the hornet may be an Asian Hornet which has been responsible for the deaths of a number of people on the continent in recent weeks. Worried Sharlene Forbes said she contacted local Gardai when they managed to trap the hornet.Sharelene revealed “Its body is the size of a thumb and its sting is the size of a sewing needle.“We are obviously concerned because these bugs are a great threat to our bees and to us as the venom dissolves the tissue and cause renal failure resulting in death.”Gardai have now been in touch with local wildlife rangers and the couple have now been advised to contact the Department of Agriculture. Sharlene says they have ben comparing the hornet they caught in their garden and the recent reports of Asian Hornets and claims they are identical.So far there have been no reports of Asian Hornets in Ireland.The creature may be a wood wasp as suggested by others but the discovery has led to worry.People have posted on Facebook about an increase in stings from similar creatures across Donegal in recent weeks.  FAMILY CONTACT AUTHORITIES AFTER DISCOVERY OF HORNET IN DONEGAL GARDEN was last modified: August 5th, 2014 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Asian HornetCarndonaghDepartment of Agriculturedonegallast_img read more

Donegal teenager turns up the heat on Minister during MacGill Summer School

Posted on by

first_imgA Donegal teenager turned up the heat when he challenged Minister Richard Bruton over climate action during a speech at the MacGill Summer School in Glenties.Conal O’Boyle, a 16-year-old student from Crana College in Buncrana, accused Fine Gael of “passing the buck onto the everyday citizen” when it comes to climate action.He slammed the Minister for Climate Action at the MacGill Summer School yesterday. “The Fine Gael Party line of ‘every individual has a role to play in tackling climate change’ is a lie.“Of course, we have a civic responsibility to recycle and ensure that our towns and villages are litter free, but Mary in Dingle or John in Castlebar cannot pull the plug on oil exploration off the west coast.“They cannot introduce a smoky coal ban or implement policy that will curb our emissions.“That’s the job of the legislators in Government. “Fine Gael are trying to pass the buck onto the everyday citizen of the country, when ultimately, the buck stops with them.”He added: “We need bravery, not cowardice.“I am a sixteen-year-old boy who cares about the living world.“I don’t know why I have to stand up for my future at this age.“None of those sitting beside me ever – apart from Jessie (another student activist) – had to do that. “I can campaign and lobby and scream and shout all I want, but at the end of the day, the ball is not in my court.“I cannot vote, so all I can do is make my voice heard.“It’s not fun, it’s not cool, but it’s necessary.”Conal’s speech was greeted with great applause from the hundreds in the hall of the Highlands Hotel – the vast majority who were at least four times his age. A surprised Richard Bruton sat in silence during the student’s speech and looked very down-in-the-mouth as everyone else cheered.Donegal teenager turns up the heat on Minister during MacGill Summer School was last modified: July 25th, 2019 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:climateConal O’BoyledonegalMACGILL SUMMER SCHOOLspeechlast_img read more

SA roots in literature: new reviews

Posted on by

first_img26 November 2004“I am an African . I owe my being to the Khoi and the San . the migrants who left Europe . the Malay slaves from the East . those transported from India and China . the grandchild of the warrior men and women . taught never to dishonour the cause of freedom.” – Thabo Mbeki, opening of the new SA Constitution, 1996.The dawn of the new South Africa spawned a new quest for ancestral roots and the “real” story of how the Rainbow Nation got here – topics covered in an increasingly wide range of literature.Here are quick reviews of a selection of new books from South African writers in search of the holistic truth espoused by President Thabo Mbeki.What’s in a (South African) name? – Despite generations of official efforts to keep South Africans apart, racial mingling goes back to the very first years when white and black met at the Cape of Good Hope.Dan Sleigh’s epic tale of the Khoe woman Eva/Krotoa, who grew up in Jan van Riebeeck’s household and married a Danish colleague, is complemented by Theresa Benade’s romantic version of events at the early Cape, seen through the eyes of Anna De Koning, acquaintance of Eva and product of an unsolemnised slave/European union.Jackie Loos gives deeper insight into the unromantic shenanigans of slaves who didn’t make it out of bondage, while Michael Morris puts the course of events and early relationships which shaped the Cape, and later the whole of South Africa, into perspective.Stephen Taylor’s exploration of the 1782 survivors throws a whole new light on “the other side of the frontier” and accounts for some interesting “mixed marriage” origins previously only hinted at. Ingest and enjoy! IslandsBy Dan Sleigh (Secker and Warburg, 2004)Translated from the original Afrikaans version by Andre Brink, this sumptuous testimony to everyday events at the Cape soon after Van Riebeeck’s arrival has been described as “the great South African novel” everyone has been waiting for.Drawing on the early Dutch East Indies Company journals, archival researcher Dan Sleigh reads between the lines of official entries and creates a fictional voice for Krotoa, the Khoe woman who was taken into Van Riebeeck’s employ and married Danish surgeon and explorer Pieter Meerhoff, and her daughter Pieternella.By dissecting Pieternella’s life into the perspectives of seven men closely associated with her, from birth through her education in Mauritius, return to South Africa and marriage to Dutch farmer Daniel Zaaiman, Sleigh also provides an intimate account of the lives of the free burghers, slaves and kingpins at the Castle in the Cape’s formative years.Though hard-core critics are wary of deviating into speculative testimonies, there can be little doubt that Sleigh’s reconstruction of the soap opera of early Cape relationships and politics is firmly rooted in fact. While indulging in his own romantic love affair with Pieternella, he takes great pains, gleaned over years of non-fiction research and writing, to present documented background.Orders, reviews, further information:Amazon.comKalahari.net Exclusive Books Kites of Good FortuneBy Theresa Benade (New Africa Books, 2004)A descendant of Angela of Bengal, a slave in the employ of Jan van Riebeeck, Theresa Benade traces the life of her daughter, Anna de Koning, who married Swede Olof Bergh and experienced comparative luxury for one born into slavery.Using archival and museum research from the reign of the Van der Stels and before, Benade weaves the happenings at the early Cape into a tale of romance and heartbreak, the aim of which is to define an elusive South African identity somewhere between Europe and the East.Besides its poignance for all South Africans with mixed roots, it provides a background of social and political factors at play and an insight into slave/European relations before De Koning’s death in 1734. An easy, fulfilling read.Orders, further information:Kalahari.net  Echoes of SlaveryBy Jackie Loos (New Africa Books, 2004)Timeously published for Unesco Year of the Slave, Cape Town historian Jackie Loos documents intimate accounts of conditions of slaves at the Cape before emancipation in 1834.Using scant testimonies of slaves, who were usually not allowed to testify in court, Loos gets behind the scenes of the forces at work on European estates and the Slave Lodge which played no small part in shaping apartheid.From beatings and sexual exploitation by harsh masters to heinous executions and occasional happy tales, her candid commentary, much of it published in weekly Argus columns, opens the doors for more in-depth research.A veritable feast for anyone with slave ancestors, or those oblivious to the real conditions that didn’t make the text books.Orders, further information:Kalahari.net  Every Step of the WayBy Michael Morris (HSRC Press, 2004)A much-needed textbook for the new SA, Argus reporter and historian Michael Morris’s “Every Step of the Way”, commissioned by the Department of Education, is a far cry from the Great Trek and Anglo-Boer War offerings that 1980s students were force-fed.A balanced look at the real forces that shaped South African politics from the time the Dutch arrived at the Cape in 1652, the book analyses the factors that preceded and created apartheid, with Morris’s philosophical insights into what makes history providing solid groundwork for aspiring historians.It’s refreshing, simple without being over-simplified, and draws on alternative sources which provide a deeper background to early history than the official pre-apartheid version. From the Eva/Krotoa story to Makana and the repatriation of Sara Baartman, there’s food for thought for any South African who’s ever wanted to trace their ancestral roots.Though the Voortrekkers are given their due, their background is placed in a much broader context where it is revealed, among other interesting facts, that the great great granddaughter of Shayk Yusuf, regarded as the founder of Islam in South Africa, married into the family of slain Voortrekker hero Piet Retief.As Morris says, “The real puzzle of our history lies in its apparent ordinariness, in the seemingly habitual way of doing things”. This book makes those realities accessible to all.Orders, further information:HSRC PublishersKalahari.net  The Caliban ShoreBy Stephen Taylor (Faber and Faber, 2004)Though he does not set out specifically with this purpose, South African-born author Stephen Taylor offers a startling insight into undocumented “mixed marriages” in the 19th century along the area known as the Wild Coast because of its notorious ability to lure ships to their grave.Drawing on published records of the ill-fated Grosvenor, which ran aground north of Port St Johns on 4 August 1782, a testimony given by one of its 19 survivors and new research findings, Taylor documents the journey of the ship from India to the trek of the six men who reached a Dutch farm outside Port Elizabeth – and, finally, the discovery of the wreck in 1999.A harrowing account of a sequence of errors, misunderstandings and fraudulent claims by treasure-seekers keen to cash in on the claim that the wreck carried a rare Persian treasure, the book also offers convincing proof that descendants of at least one of the three British women who became a Tshomane chief’s wife still live in the area.While he didn’t get to find anyone who could prove direct descent, Taylor did meet members of the abeLunge, who, with paler complexion and aquiline features, are brought up knowing they are descended from the ship people.

South African rowers shine at Olympics

Posted on by

first_img1 August 2012While Chad le Clos grabbed South Africa’s second gold medal in the swimming pool at the 2012 London Olympic Games on Tuesday night, some other South Africans put in good performances on the first two days of the week.The most impressive of those came on Tuesday afternoon from the men’s lightweight fours rowing team of Matthew Brittain, Lawrence Ndlovu, John Smith, James Thompson.They secured a place in the A final after a strong performance over the 2 000 metres distance in very testing, rainy conditions at Eton Dorney.Early goingDenmark, with four-time Olympic medallist and six-time world champion Eskild Ebbesen in their four, started strongly and forged an early lead, with South Africa in second place and world champions, Australia, in third. France, Italy and China filled the following three places.Australia made a move near the halfway mark to edge ahead of South Africa, as the two teams closed the gap on the Danes.Then, with 500 metres remaining, South Africa made a strong push, overhauling the world champions to finish less than a second behind Denmark.Having proved to be one of the six top teams in the world, the crew from Pretoria University has a decent opportunity to add to South Africa’s medal haul on Thursday.FinalApart from the Danes and the Aussies, they’ll be up against hosts Great Britain, Switzerland and the Netherlands in the final.Gideon Louw, competing in the 100 metres freestyle, qualified for the semi-finals with the second-fastest time, a career best 48.29 seconds, despite having the second-slowest starting time out of all the swimmers contesting the event.Unfortunately, in the semis, his start was even worse than in the heats and he faced an uphill battle to make the final.Louw showed great speed to close down some of the ground he had lost at the start, but his time of 48.44 seconds meant he missed out on the title-decider by a single place.Proud exitSouth Africa’s women’s football team, Banyana Banyana, after two defeats, exited the Games proudly after holding Japan to a goalless draw.The Japanese, at number three in the world, were the highest ranked of the teams in South Africa’s pool, which also included world number four Sweden and world number seven Canada.The country’s men’s and women’s hockey teams found the going tough. The men were beaten 6-0 by world number one Australia, while the women fell 4-1 to New Zealand after a disappointing performance.Gideon van Zyl appeared to be well on top of Rustam Orujov of Azerbaijan before losing by ippon in the under-73 kilogram division of the judo competition.Would you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

Planter maintenance is worth the effort

Posted on by

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest The 2016 growing season will be upon us before we know it. One of the most important parts of the growing season is planting. It’s crucial that your crops get off to a good start and it’s important to make sure that your planter is field-ready when the time comes. Planting seed into the best possible growing conditions is a one of the most important tasks of spring field work. A planter in need of some adjustment can result in varied seed placement, uneven emergence, and ultimately a reduction in yield potential.Check for and replace any parts of your planter that are excessively worn. No-till coulters or disk openers that are worn out will not create the proper seed furrow and may cause poor seed placement. Good seed-to-soil contact is critical in ensuring seed germination and uniform emergence. Emergence that is uneven can cause a loss in yield potential. No-till coulters should be adjusted to operate at the same depth or slightly shallower than disk openers. Seed firmers in good condition will also promote adequate seed-to-soil contact. Check the chains and sprockets on your planter. Make sure chains are operated at the correct tension and replace any sprockets that are worn as well as chains that are stiff, rusty, or excessively worn. Smooth chain operation is a critical component of proper planter operation and seed spacing. Any hesitation or jerk in the system will result in seed spacing that is not uniform.One of the most important aspects of planter maintenance is calibration of your planter. Make the necessary adjustments to your planter to make certain it will plant at the population you desire. Broken or worn parts on planter units should be replaced and units should be periodically calibrated. Along with performing maintenance on planter units make sure seed tubes are clean and are not damaged such that they will prevent even seed spacing. Calibration of your planter and units will reduce skips, doubles, and triples in seed placement. Research has shown that skips, doubles, and triples can cause a reduction in yield potential. In the publication Corn Stand Establishment and Planter Maintenance, Purdue Extension Agronomist Bob Nielsen states “Yield data from our small-plot research and from replicated strip trials indicate that about 2.5 bushels per acre are lost for every inch increase in the standard deviation of the plant-to-plant spacings.”Uniform seed spacing minimizes competition between plants for water and nutrients and promotes efficient use of sunlight.Once you’ve gone through your planter, it’s a good idea to test it out before you head to the field. It is important to evaluate a planter under conditions closely resembling those you will find in the field. Keep in mind a gravel driveway in the barnyard may work but it might not accurately resemble field conditions. Evaluate your planter’s performance at the speed you will be operating in the field. Check your planter for smooth operation, make sure seed spacing and depth is even and accurate. Making a few adjustments to your planter this winter will require some time and effort. This is time well spent and it could really pay off in the upcoming growing season.last_img read more
