Boro offered £4.5m plus add-ons for the Spanish playmaker, who has attracted interest from several clubs.Jokanovic wants FlintEmbed from Getty ImagesSlavisa Jokanovic wants Fulham to complete a deal to sign Bristol City centre-back Aden Flint.Head coach Jokanovic is hoping to add Flint, 27, to his squad but the Whites hierarchy are less keen, having brought in Marcelo Djalo and Tomas Kalas on loan.Jokanovic also likes Watford’s Craig Cathcart and Grant Hanley of Newcastle.However, as in the case of Flint, Fulham’s statistical analysis team are unconvinced they would be good acquisitions.Meanwhile, Middlesbrough have enquired about Tim Ream but Fulham want the United States international to stay.Perch injury woeEmbed from Getty ImagesJames Perch faces several months on the sidelines with a knee injury he sustained at the weekend.The QPR defender refused to come off during the final stages of Saturday’s home win against Hull City.It has since been ascertained that he suffered a dislocated knee cap.El Khayati goes and JET could followNasser El Khayati has left QPR and the club are also looking to get rid of Jay Emmanuel-Thomas.El Khayati’s contract has been terminated by mutual consent – 18 months after his move from Burton.He made 25 appearances for the R’s, scoring one goal, and ended last season in his native Netherlands, on loan at ADO Den Haag.Emmanuel-Thomas, who joined QPR in 2015, spent last season on loan at Gillingham and has long been out of favour at Loftus Road.Holloway stands by changesQPR manager Ian Holloway stood by his decision to make 10 changes for his side’s Carabao Cup defeat at home to Brentford.Rangers were thrashed 4-1 by their west London neighbours, but Holloway insisted he had no regrets about his team selection.He said: “I stand by that. I wanted the ones who haven’t played to show me what it’s about and were they ready to take on Brentford.“It didn’t look like it. But there were a lot of positives for me and I would still make the same decision because the league campaign is absolutely vital for us.“It was always going to be the right thing to do from my point of view. I’ve got to look past the score, past the criticism and look past who it’s against.“The score doesn’t feel very nice because they’re from over the road.”Ouseph winsHounslow’s Rajiv Ouseph moved into the third round of the badminton World Championships with a 22-20, 21-9 victory over world number 29 Sameer Verma in Glasgow.The reigning European champion and tournament 16th seed had defeated outsider Adam Mendrek in the first round but this looked, on paper, a tougher test.It proved so in a nip and tuck first game, in which the lead changed hands several times, but Ouseph shaded it.

first_img10 May 2011 Johannesburg’s Chancellor House has been reborn, and although the offices of Mandela & Tambo Attorneys are empty, the spirit of the two icons is almost tangible in the building. The modest, three-storey structure, on the corner of Fox and Gerard Sekoto streets in Ferreirasdorp in Johannesburg’s CBD, has had its dignity restored. Executive Mayor Amos Masondo and his team presided over the launch of the refurbished building last week, a process that begun in September 2010. “We meet to celebrate the opening of a fully restored Chancellor House – a historic building that was used as a legal firm for both Nelson Mandela and Oliver Tambo in the 1950s,” Masondo said. “If bricks could talk, this building would have been replete with colourful stories about the struggles for national liberation.” Advocate George Bizos, a long-time friend and advocate of Mandela, was the special guest, and he warmly recounted anecdotes of attorneys Tambo and Mandela. He said of his friend: “He had a wonderful presence.” Bizos added: “I am very pleased about the initiative of the City to restore the building; it is a living structure, a living space in honour of Nelson Mandela, Oliver Tambo, Duma Nokwe, Mendi Msimang, Godfrey Pitje and others.” He also paid tribute to the Essa family from Polokwane in Limpopo, which owned the building since 1943. It was expropriated by the City last year. “They took a chance in allowing them to stay [in a white area]; they couldn’t always afford the rent. They played a role,” he explained. Other guests included representatives of the Sisulu and Mandela families – Beryl Sisulu and Ndileka Mandela. Attorneys who worked in the firm were Mendi Msimang and Dumi Nokwe, who were represented by Hlula Msimang and Nosizwe Macamo.Restoration The building, a derelict disaster for the past 10 years, has been restored using old photographs, says Lauren Segal, the curator of the exhibition of Chancellor House. The tall ceilings and interior pillars give the inside a more elegant look than the exterior promises. The ground floor has had its large Fox and Gerard Sekoto street window fronts re-instated. Parquet flooring, gleaming and warm, has been sourced and covers the ground floor and the three offices on the second floor of the Tambo and Mandela rooms, which overlook the Magistrates’ Courts across the road. The rest of the office space has grey carpeting, and all walls are crisp white. The other offices have been opened up to create spacious, open-plan areas, with toilets and kitchens running along the north side on each floor. The original entrance on the Fox Street side has been restored, while the courtyard toilets have been demolished, to create a new, enlarged space with plants and benches. A fire escape has been added and a new lift installed. A new roof was constructed, the old one having been damaged by fire and water seepage. Some 68 homeless people had to be removed from the building and were relocated to a shelter, before the City could expropriate the building. Around 30 skips of rubbish had to be removed before a proper assessment could be done, and work could begin.Busy practice Mandela and Tambo had a busy practice in the building from 1952 to 1960, at times bringing in other attorneys when they were caught up in trials in which they were the accused, like the Treason Trial, for which they were arrested in 1956. In an article titled “Save Chancellor House” in the De Rebus magazine of April 1999, attorney Norman Sher recalls his association with the building. Sher worked in the early 1950s as a clerk while studying to write his matric, in the firm of Berman & Berman, the attorneys who occupied the second floor of Chancellor House. He says: “It seems like yesterday and I can see them firmly imprinted in my mind: Nelson Mandela, a most imposing figure with a charming and genial personality, and Oliver Tambo, in contrast, with his deep penetrating features, a quiet and dignified man who spoke very softly in well-modulated and precise sentences.” He described how their offices were “neat and orderly” but crowded with people wanting help with obtaining passes, a process which involved “overcoming almost insurmountable obstacles”. Sher acted as a messenger to Tambo and Mandela, and often fell down the narrow staircase while trying to deliver messages as fast as he could. Mandela named him “Haasie”, Afrikaans for rabbit, “a nickname which he cherishes to this day with fond memories”. He was paid in kind for his messenging duties – he was treated to meals at Kosi’s Cafe on the ground floor, “an institution in itself playing host to many famous personalities”. Sher says that the three of them became good friends, with him bringing the lawyers their daily lunch of samosas from Kosi’s. “Little did I realise then what an important role Mandela and Tambo were to play in the future history of our country.”Museum A museum, to be positioned along the ground floor windows and outside the building, is to be opened at the end of May, says Segal. She explained at the launch, finding it hard to contain her excitement, how she had found documents, including letters, previously unseen photographs, banning orders, police correspondence stamped “Geheim/Secret”, invoices, and court admission material, relevant to the Mandela and Tambo practice, at the national archives in Pretoria. “It is a very exciting find; it felt like new stuff,” she exclaimed. The material has been deposited with the Nelson Mandela Foundation. The three offices of the law firm will house a library containing a collection of digitised documents of legal cases handled by the two icons. Blown-up photographs with text will fill each of the ground windows, allowing passers-by to participate in the exhibition. “The various exhibitions will be designed to celebrate the history of this area, of the building and of the people who walked through its doors. Many of them, giants of our history, but also ordinary people in search for a better life, basic justice and elementary human rights,” said Masondo. Tenants for the building are being sought. They will preferably have a legal connection. Bizos indicated that he was going to approach the legal fraternity to ask them to help maintain the library and a possible legal clinic. “There are enough lawyers who have a social conscience.” The shuttered north entrance of the courts in Fox Street will be opened, to allow attorneys to cross the road to use the library and clinic. The Johannesburg Development Agency has overseen the restoration, at a cost of R7-million. “I trust that Chancellor House will remain a beacon of hope for all our people as we continue with our collective efforts to consolidate our freedom and deepen our democracy,” concluded Masondo.

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Matt ReeseThe Ohio AgriBusiness Association Industry Conference always features a diverse and interesting program and this year is certainly no exception. Thursday’s topics included an overview of the state’s livestock industries, a look at global grain markets, and regulations, just to name a few. Among the more popular presentations was the topic of striving for high corn yields with Fred Below from the University of Illinois.“I talked about my seven wonders of the corn yield world. These are the management factors that each impact yield. This is not rocket science. I talked about how important weather is and how weather interacts with nitrogen, about getting the hybrid selection right, managing the rotation, and plant population. The plant population is a big factor that has changed and has to change in order to grow higher yields — narrower rows and more plants. Finally I try to put it together in a systems approach. When you combine management factors they do work together as a team to increase yields,” Below said. “We try to determine the value of each player. I summarized our research over 6 years and we see a common theme. The factors that play the largest role are fertility, narrow-row spacing and plant population. It is all about feeding and managing more plants.”Below said in a favorable year, weather and nitrogen combine to contribute more than 50% of total yield. On average, he has found the maximum response to nitrogen over an unfertilized check plot treatment is approximately 70 bushels per acre.As other management improvements are made, Below said the plant population must increase as well to achieve higher yields. This requires more management, however, and depends heavily upon weather conditions for success.Below also pointed out other factors that can be implemented on farms with a typically big bang for the buck.“One of the things growers could do alone is use fungicide. Some years fungicides have a huge increase in yield,” he said. “We often see the fullest relative maturity for the region gives us the highest yield, especially if they plant early. This is an easy thing to try and it doesn’t cost more.”Stepping up management can have a particularly significant impact in more challenging soil types.“I want to point out that if your soil is more challenging then you have to be a better farmer. Ohio’s farmers are probably better farmers because they have to manage the crops based on the soils they have,” Below said. “Their opportunity to increase yields on a relative basis is actually going to be greater than what we have in Illinois with our soil types.”The Friday program for the OABA event includes consumer relation efforts, equipment hazards and safety, technology updates, herbicide challenges, and edge of field management. Stay tuned for more.last_img read more
