first_imgRelatedPosts Mane double eases Liverpool to win over 10-man Chelsea EPL: Chelsea, Liverpool in cagey duel Exciting EPL, La Liga, Serie A matches this weekend on DStv, GOtv Dan Gosling condemned Chelsea to a fourth defeat in five Premier League matches as Bournemouth triumphed 1-0 at Stamford Bridge. Gosling struck an 84th-minute winner when he flicked the ball over Kepa Arrizabalaga and into the net despite standing with his back to goal, ending Bournemouth’s run of five successive league losses. Kepa was made to pay for another bout of poor positioning, while Chelsea were punished for an incoherent and toothless display that will have left boss Frank Lampard far from impressed. Lampard has demanded more “personality” from his Chelsea players in a bid to arrest their league slump, but despite a host of big names there was precious little star quality on view in west London. Instead, in-form striker Tammy Abraham was too isolated too often, with teammates unable to provide the service to capitalise on his sharpness in front of goal. Eddie Howe’s Bournemouth headed into the clash missing eight injured senior players and fretting about the source of their next league victory. The Cherries had not won since seeing off Manchester United 1-0 at home on November 2, and would have expected a stern test in the capital. Howe’s men kept their heads and shape throughout however, even rebuffing a late Chelsea rally after Lampard threw on Michy Batshuayi as a second striker. While Bournemouth were left to toast a vital win, Chelsea could only lament another below-par league performance. After Tuesday’s high of seeing off Lille 2-1 to reach the Champions League’s last 16, this was a serious bump down to earth for Lampard and the Blues. Mason Mount spurned the finest chance of a wretched first half, unable to beat Bournemouth goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale who blocked well after Jorginho’s dangerous dink into the box. Abraham could not turn Cesar Azpilicueta’s cross goalwards despite a neat run and first-time effort, while Christian Pulisic failed to find a team-mate with a header across goal. Ryan Fraser saw a low shot blocked in a rare Bournemouth raid, but otherwise it was 45 minutes of bluster. Chelsea rode their luck on a host of occasions after the break as an emboldened Bournemouth started to chase the game. Kurt Zouma pulled off a fine last-ditch sliding tackle to deny Josh King, with an out-of-position Kepa furiously backpedalling. Jefferson Lerma was hugely fortunate to escape without conceding a penalty for elbowing away Willian’s free-kick as Chelsea rallied as the match ticked past the hour. Callum Hudson-Odoi added impetus off the bench, and his cross eventually led to Emerson Palmieri heading straight at Ramsdale. From point-blank range the Chelsea left-back should have easily nodded home. But instead the Blues were left to battle away as the turgidity continued. Lampard went for broke by sending on Batshuayi, sacrificing Jorginho in chasing a much-needed win. And yet it was Bournemouth prevailed, as Gosling conjured an improbable lob to stun Kepa, with Azpilicueta unable to clear off the line. The goal was rightly awarded after a Video Assistant Referee check, with the ball clearly crossing the line despite Azpilicueta’s best efforts – and Philip Billing not active as he was retreating when the ball was played in to Gosling.Tags: AFC BournemouthChelseaMichy BatshuayiStamford Bridgelast_img read more

first_imgGuyanese-born British actress Letitia Wright is among the top-notch cast for the much-anticipated movie, Black Panther, which is set to officially hit theaters on Feb. 16th. Wright, 24, plays Shuri, in the movie, the sister of the King and the “Smartest Person in the World.”The movie features T’Challa, played by actor Chadwick Boseman, who return home to the African nation of Wakanda to take his rightful place as king. When a powerful enemy suddenly reappears, T’Challa’s mettle as king, and as Black Panther, gets tested when he’s drawn into a conflict that puts the fate of Wakanda and the entire world at risk. Faced with treachery and danger, the young king must rally his allies and release the full power of Black Panther to defeat his foes and secure the safety of his people.“As far as the technologically-advanced side, in our mind, and in our incarnation, Shuri is the head of the Wakanda Design Group,” Black Panther Producer Moore told the Rant recently. “She’s the smartest person in the world, smarter than Tony Stark but she’s a sixteen-year-old girl which we thought was really interesting. Again, black faces in positions of power or positions of technological know-how, that’s a rarity. So it’s something that’s a big part of the film.”Shuri, the princess of Wakanda, was introduced in May 2005 in Marvel Comics’ Black Panther #2. However, four years later, she went on to assume the mantle of Black Panther in her own right after T’Challa was attacked by the Cabal and left in a comatose state. Given that the film’s teaser trailer shows T’Challa and Shuri standing in front of a pair of near-identical Black Panther costumes, some have speculated that perhaps she’ll follow in the footsteps of her comic-book-counterpart and suit up, herself.Guyana bornWright was born in Georgetown, Guyana and moved with her family at age 7 to London. Her interest in acting came when she saw ‘Akeelah and the Bee’ and found the lead character to be a positive role model. Determined to act, she sent emails to different agents about her acting experience until she was picked for small parts. She started out staring in ‘My Brother the Devil’ in 2012, where she was recognized by Screen International as one of its 2012 Stars of Tomorrow. Michael Caton-Jones then cast her in ‘Urban Hymn,’ in 2016, which garnered her attention and Wright was soon cast in the film adaptation of the novel ‘Ready Player One,’ as Reb.Soon, after, she was added to ‘Black Panther’ as part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Award for most promising newcomerWright has received a nomination for a British Independent Film Award for Most Promising Newcomer.Black Panther is directed by Ryan Coogler and also stars: Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Guira, Letitia Wright, Daniel Kaluuya, Winston Duke, Martin Freeman, Forest Whitaker, Andy Serkis, and Angela Bassett. (NewsAmericasNow)last_img read more

first_imgSouth Africa is one of the pioneeringhosts of the electric racing series. The EF01 series is expected to be acatalyst for the development of greenmotoring innovations. (Images: Formulec South Africa) MEDIA CONTACTS • David BarrièreFormulec press office+33 6 88 20 04 19 RELATED ARTICLES • SA market hungry for the Joule • A joule of an energy-efficient car • Model ‘green’ car in SA for World Cup • Powering towards a green economy • SA’s first hydrogen bike rolled outMark ReidThe future of international motorsport is on its way to South Africa – 2012 sees the birth of 100% electric motor racing with the official launch of the Formulec World Series.The Formulec Electric Formula EF01 World Series, based on the Formula Three concept, is set to be decided over 10 races on five continents and will be racing through South Africa in October 2012.By 2014, the Formulec team hopes to throw open the championship to independent manufacturers with their own cars.Local events company Eco Promotions has scooped the Formulec contract as the official event promoter in South Africa. Experienced in staging renewable energy events, the company is now scouring the country for a suitable location, as the cars will be racing not on a track, but through city streets.The low noise output of the vehicle makes it well suited to an urban street race, and because the event is not limited to a track, cities around the country can take turns to play host.Green motoring technology Motor racing has long been a platform for the development of new technologies, which in turn lead to these technological advancements filtering down to consumers.With the world market for electric vehicles expected to reach 10% of total production by 2020, Formulec is looking to the future. The company intends to contribute to the acceleration of green automotive research, and help improve the efficiency of electric vehicles.South Africa, as an EF01 host, will take its place at the forefront of renewable energy technology innovations. The country has already made its mark in this field with the development of the all-electric Joule, which is currently between the prototype and full production stages. It’s expected to debut on local showroom floors in 2014.As concern grows over climate change and the planet’s oil reserves, the focus is shifting to finding new sustainable transport solutions such as electric vehicles, as manufacturers gradually look to phase out fossil fuel engines. With no exhaust, the electric car is eco-friendly and quiet, and is an attractive alternative in large cities where commuters grapple with the problem of increasing traffic.The EF01 series will open up opportunities for innovators in the eco-energy industry to publicly showcase their technologies in a festival atmosphere at each event.High performance Designed to equal the performance of its cousin, the combustion-driven Formula Three car, the single-seater EF01 is more than capable. The fastest racing electric car in the world accelerates from 0-100kpm in a blistering time of under three seconds and reaches a top speed of around 260 km/h.The two-wheel-drive Formula Three cars have 2 000cc four-cylinder engines. Formula Three is seen as one step below Formula One, with fine drivers such as Ayrton Senna, Michael Schumacher, David Coulthard, Ralf Schumacher, and Takuma Sato coming through the lower ranks to achieve success in the high-powered racing championship.The EF01 took 30 months to come to life. In developing the EF01, Formulec and its partner, engineering specialist Segula Matra Technologies, have brought with a host of motoring experts on board, including Siemens, which is responsible for the car’s two electric motors; Michelin, which has adapted new energy-saving tyres to the power of the EF01 motors; Oz, which provided the rims; Hewland, which developed a unique transmission system for the EF01; and Saft, which developed the car’s special lithium ion battery system.The bodywork has been shaped by, among others, the highly experienced Mercedes GP Petronas Formula One team.The EF01 first took to the track in September 2010 at Magny-Cours in France, followed soon after by an outing on the Bugatti track at Le Mans. Its battery life allows it to race for up to 25 minutes, says Formulec, depending on the track, with a qualifying time similar to that of the Formula Three vehicle.The car debuted at the Paris Motor Show in October 2010.last_img read more

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Today, the American Tree Farm System (ATFS) announced the 2018 National Outstanding Tree Farmer of the Year. This year’s honorees are Randy and Koral Clum of east central Ohio. The Clums have been sustainably managing Hepatica Falls Tree Farm, their 152-acre certified forestland in southwestern Harrison County, since they purchased the property in 1993.While Randy and Koral Clum had spent much of their careers in forestry, they hadn’t managed their own property until they acquired their tree farm. Since then, they’ve been dedicated to creating a working forest that produces high-quality timber while managing for water, wildlife and recreation, as well as using their woodland to educate others about the benefits of the forest and good management principles.“It’s an amazing honor and I feel blessed to have worked with all the people that we’ve worked with. We are honored to be recognized in this way,” Koral Clum said.Randy Clum added, “What’s been important to us about the American Tree Farm System is the education component. It’s a way to meet other tree farmers, to expand their knowledge, to expose them to bigger and better things, and to what other tree farmers have been doing for the last few decades. It’s good principles. It’s good standards. It’s what tree farming’s all about, clean air, clean water, timber, recreation, aesthetics all rolled into one package.”Randy and Koral Clum are frequent speakers on forest management during seminars, field days, and other educational workshops. The couple also has served on numerous advisory boards and held officer positions for organizations such as Ohio Society of American Foresters, Ohio Tree Farm Committee, Ohio Farm Bureau, and the East Central Ohio Forestry Association. Sharing their love of forestry has grown over the years, and recently Randy has adopted social media to engage and educate others who want to know more about family forest ownership and best management practices.“The Clums are model landowners who have done great work on their land, for sustainable wood, clean water, improved wildlife habitat, and recreation,” said Tom Martin, President and CEO of the American Forest Foundation, the non-profit conservation group that manages the American Tree Farm System. “Randy and Koral have been terrific stewards of their land and have also taken that a step further to reach out to their neighbors and their community to all work together to make our forests healthier. This type of sharing and education is a key value of ATFS.”The Clums were nominated for the award by Jeremy Scherf, Service Forester for the Ohio Department of Natural Resources Division of Forestry and 2016 National Tree Farm Inspector of the Year.“Hepatica Falls Tree Farm is one of the best managed properties around. So, when you think of forestry in Ohio, it’s hard not to think of Randy and Koral Clum. While they are foresters by profession, they are generous educators at heart,” Scherf said. “The Clums volunteer a lot of their time to educate others about forestry, both locally and statewide. The countless hours they spend donating their time to help teach others about our forests is remarkable.”Managing their land for timber sales, the Clums have adhered to the high standards of ATFS certification. This requires tree selection with consideration for forest health, spacing, risk, markets, aesthetics, wildlife, and long-term productivity. These best management practices and their love of the land have ensured erosion control near Stillwater Creek and they have protected and improved habitat for many wildlife species, including bobcat, coyote, river otter, deer, spring peepers, wild turkey, ruffed grouse, wood duck, turkey vulture, red-tailed hawk, pileated woodpecker, woodcock, barred owl, kingfisher, wren, towhee, scarlet tanager, goldfinch, hummingbird, and Louisiana water thrush.“Some people feel that cutting trees is hard on the wildlife, but in this part of Ohio, the missing component for a lot of wildlife is the early successional forest, the young trees,” Koral said. “We also leave cavity trees for birds, squirrels and other species.”Each year, ATFS recognizes four Regional Outstanding Tree Farmers out of the 73,000 Tree Farmers nationwide. This year, ATFS is proud to also recognize the regional awardees: Russell Black from Maine; Jon and Carol Gould from Florida; and Dan Kingsbury from Washington, along with the Clums.“Our past timber sales have been a blessing from the standpoint of creating more diversity as far as food and habitat. It has introduced so much diversity with edge effect and young successional stage for so many different species of not only animals, but also bird species, insects—pollinators. It just worked out better than we ever imagined,” Randy said.Individuals considered for the award must demonstrate exceptional efforts to preserve and enhance their woodlands, which conserves and enhances clean water and air, wildlife habitat, recreational activities, and the wood for homes and paper products that come from their land, all of which are exemplified on the ATFS sign.To learn more about the 2018 Outstanding Tree Farmers of the Year, visit: https://www.forestfoundation.org/2018-outstanding-tree-farmers .last_img read more

first_imgCulture is made up of what your company is on the inside. It is critical that what you are on the inside is different than what is outside.Outside: Outside, your people are bombarded daily with negative messages. The news and their social feeds are predominantly negative. Your people are continually barraged with news stories designed to create fear and angst and unrest. The talk of recessions persists years after a recession ended. Stories of loss open every newscast, regardless of medium.Inside: You have to have a message that inoculates the people you lead from negativity. Your message has to be optimistic and future-oriented. Inside has to be a place where people feel safer than they feel on the outside. Hope, promise, and possibility needs to live inside your four walls.Outside: Your people are told that they’re not good enough, that they are somehow broken. They are told that they can’t be more, do more, have more, or contribute more. They are messaged by marketers in ways that drive them to feel as if they are inadequate and incomplete.Inside: Inside, you must have a message to contradict and counteract these infections. A leader sees something in the individuals they lead that they don’t see in themselves, and makes it visible. They see something in a team that the team doesn’t see and brings it to light. A leader sees something in a company that the organization can’t yet see, not only making it visible, making it possible.It has to better inside your company than it is outside. You have to create greater certainty and greater psychological safety. You have to create a sense of community and belonging that no longer exists in neighborhoods. You have to help enable a sense of meaning and purpose that some of your people won’t bring with them, and many won’t find outside.No one knows if Drucker really said “culture eats strategy for breakfast.” If he didn’t, I believe he would support the statement—and its ramifications for leaders.

first_imgAfter August 5, only four boys below the age of 18 were detained by the police, and they are now lodged at a Juvenile Observation Home (JOH) in Srinagar’s Harwan, a senior government official said.In all, there are 21 boys at the observation home. Among them 17 boys were detained before August 5 — the day Home Minister Amit Shah moved two Bills in the Rajya Sabha to revoke the special status of J&K under Article 370 and bifurcate and downgrade the State into two Union Territories.The official said the J&K administration was compiling a list of all persons detained in jails and police stations and had asked the police to submit their date of birth.On September 20, the Supreme Court assigned Jammu and Kashmir High Court’s Juvenile Justice Committee to inquire into allegations of illegal detention of children — some as young as 10 — by security forces in J&K.Third visitThe Chairman of the J&K High Court Legal Services Committee Justice Ali Mohammad Magray visited the observation home last week following the Supreme Court’s directions. This was his third visit to the observation home. There are two such homes in J&K, each in Srinagar and Jammu.“The 17 detained at the juvenile home before the restrictions were put in place are there for offences like attempt to murder, and rape. There is no case of any illegal arrest,” said the official.Justice Magrey was given a tour of the detention centre where he interacted with the juveniles.“We have filed a status report in the J&K High Court about the juveniles. A few were detained and booked after repeated attempts to counsel them failed. A couple of juveniles were booked for throwing stones,” said the official.A government press release quoted Justice Magrey that “juvenile observation homes should be to show right path to the detainees, rather than making them feel like criminals.”The petition in the Supreme Court was filed by child rights activists Enakshi Ganguly and Shanta Sinha who raised “substantial issues and alleged detention of children.”The petition wanted the court to direct the government to file a status report and order the Juvenile Justice Committee to monitor incidents of detention. “With regard to the situation in J&K, there have been certain reports specific to children, which describe violations of very different kinds, ranging in seriousness from potential loss of life and liberty of the child to being emotionally and intellectually drawn into the conflict.”last_img read more
