How Spurs will line-up at Burnley with Lloris back but Kane & Son injured

Former Mayor speaks to possible changes with Site C

first_imgAnother major concern brought forward was BC Hydro’s long term plans, specifically what happens when the dam reaches the end of its life span. Especially with the two other dams on the Peace River that that will reach the end of their life spans before Site C.In April of this year the Province announced that Site C would move into the third phase. Phase 3 will see the project move to the regulatory review phase which could last for several years.If approved, Site C could be producing power by 2020.

TRANSFER LATEST: Chelsea close in on Roma star as Blues up offer to £31million

first_imgChelsea are prepared to fork out £31m for Roma midfielder Radja Nainggolan, claim reports in Italy.New Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has made the Belgian international one of his top targets this summer, having watched him closely this year.Reports earlier in the week suggested Chelsea and Roma had already agreed a fee of around £26m for Nainggolan, but the Italian club are now demanding more for the 27-year-old.And, according to Sky Sport Italia, Chelsea are willing to meet Roma’s new valuation by adding another £5m to their original offer.That is likely to be enough to tempt Roma into selling their star man as it would allow the Italians to find an adequate replacement in midfield, plus a striker to succeed club legend Francesco Totti, who is expected to leave at the end of the season. 1 Radja Nainggolan in action for Roma last_img read more

22 illegals hurt as coyotes’ van crashes still hospitalized

first_img Seven people in the van escaped injury but were being detained Saturday along with the people in the other van, Kite said. A CHP report of the incident put the figure at six who escaped injury. All were being interviewed. “We’ll try to determine who’s responsible for this smuggling operation (and) who the drivers of the vehicle were,” Kite said. Immigrant smuggling operations, carried out by people nicknamed “coyotes,” have been blamed for accidents that killed or injured dozens of people in recent years. Last year, five people died when a minivan loaded with illegal immigrants and driving the wrong way hit a pickup truck head-on near Jamul, 20 miles east of San Diego. Five other people were hurt in another rollover crash. In 2004, two crashes involving vans carrying illegal immigrants left 21 people injured. In 2003, five people died and 36 people were hurt in three separate crashes, including one in which a stolen pickup loaded with immigrants crashed while trying to avoid a spike strip. Six people died in 2002 in a head-on crash. Authorities said the driver of a van carrying 33 immigrants had the lights out and was going the wrong way on Interstate 8 to avoid a Border Patrol checkpoint.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

SAN DIEGO – Nearly two dozen people remained hospitalized Saturday after a van packed with suspected illegal immigrants crashed during a chase, authorities said. A blue Chevrolet Sportvan carrying 28 people overturned Friday after hitting a spike strip that Border Patrol agents had placed in its path. Twenty-two people were being treated at six hospitals, said Kristin Reinhardt, a spokeswoman for the Scripps hospital chain. A Border Patrol spokesman put the figure at 21. Reinhardt declined to disclose their conditions, citing privacy laws. Authorities earlier said eight people had critical but not life-threatening injuries.

The loading site was near a San Diego warehouse where investigators last month discovered the exit to a 2,400-foot-long tunnel used to smuggle drugs, the longest passageway ever found under the U.S.-Mexico border. Border Patrol officers stopped a van and took 35 people into custody. Another 33 people were held after their van hit a Border Patrol vehicle and a car and halted as it tried to make a U-turn. The third van hit a spike strip laid down by Border Patrol agents on state Route 905 and rolled several times as it went down a 30-foot embankment, authorities said. “The van was going close to freeway speeds when the driver struck the spike strip and lost control” after blowing at least one tire, California Highway Patrol Officer Mark Gregg said Friday. last_img read more

Celtic crowned Telkom Knockout champs

first_img3 DecemberBloemfontein Celtic captured South Africa’s Telkom Knockout Cup for first time in the club’s history with a 1-0 victory over Mamelodi Sundowns at Moses Mahbida Stadium in Durban on Saturday night.It was a bitter pill to swallow for Sundowns, who have won only two of their 12 PSL games so far, leaving them second from bottom of the standings. They had viewed the Cup final as an opportunity to turn around their season. Instead they lost out to a controversial goal.Joel Mogorosi was awarded the winner in the 47th minute, but it was questionable whether the whole ball crossed the line after his header was cleared by Clayton Daniels. Long-time football followers will know, however, that when matters get bad, bad decisions seem to follow those teams.‘The goal came out of nowhere’“The goal came out of nowhere,” said Sundowns’ coach Johan Neeskens after the game. “I still want to see the replay. I’m not sure whether the ball was fully over the line.”He graciously added: “I have to congratulate Bloemfontein Celtic because when they beat teams like Orlando Pirates, Free State Stars and also us, then they deserve to win this Cup.”Unfortunately for the Dutch great, it was his last match in charge of the club, which fired him on Monday and replaced him with former Bafana Bafana coach Pitso Mosimane.It was a wonderful occasion for Celtic coach Clinton Larsen, who led his team to the title in front of family and friends in the city where he played most of his professional football.‘An emotional ride’“What an emotional ride, a roller-coaster ride. I’m so proud of my boys today. They gave it their all,” he said in a post-match interview.“I said from the beginning it would have been an injustice had we not won this cup after the route we’ve had [to take] and I’m ecstatic.”Questioned about what he said to lift his team at the break, Larsen said: “What I said to the boys is that we had the best chance in the first half. We weren’t playing our best football at all and we were well in the game, and I said that’s a sign that this cup was meant for us.”Sweeping attacking moveA sweeping attacking move in the ninth minute created some space for Teko Modise, who tested Celtic goalkeeper Patrick Tignyemb with a left footed shot from just outside the box. The Cameroonian net-minder was up to the task, diving to his right to bat the ball away, which left Modise looking skywards, palms held upwards beseechingly.In the 16th minute Lennox Bacela had an excellent opportunity to put Celtic ahead when he rounded the Brazilians’ defence after his marker slipped. Bacela, though, was indecisive and shot later than he should have, allowing Wayne Sandilands to block his effort with his feet.Sundowns responded with a long range shot from Temba Zwane, which flew over the top of the Celtic goal, and an angled shot, wide of the mark, by Richard Henyekane, who had been played in after a neat interchange of passes.Shaved the postOn the half-hour mark, Ruzaigh Gamildien showed good control on the edge of the Sundowns’ box to create space for himself and fire off a shot that shaved Sandilands’ left post.Zwane forced Tignyemb to tip a shot over the bar after he let fly from an angle on the edge of the box five minutes from the break.GoalJust two minutes into the second half, Sandilands misjudged a cross from the left and the ball fell to Mogorosi just outside Sundowns’ right hand post, about seven metres out. He headed goalwards. Daniels cleared, but the linesman ruled the ball had crossed the line. Replays suggested the decision was incorrect, bit the goal stood.A lovely, flowing attack by Celtic almost gave them a second goal five minutes later. Gamildien received the ball from the right and fired across goal, once again shaving the keepers’ left hand post.Sundowns’ Eleazar Rodgers fired wide right of the mark with a volley after picking up a loose ball on the edge of box just before the hour-mark.Penalty appealThe Pretoria club pushed hard for an equaliser, but a shot by Modise deflected into the hands of Tignyemb and an appeal for hand ball was dismissed by the referee.In time added on, Gamildien came close to delivering the killer blow for Celtic when he robbed the last ‘Downs defender and smashed the ball across goal. It struck the inside of the post and rebounded out, leaving him without a goal, but as close to a hat-trick as one could come.A snap shot on the turn by Anthony Laffor, which passed narrowly wide of the Celtic goal, was the Brazilians’ last effort of the contest and Celtic went on to victory.Would you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

iShack: informal housing ‘gets smart’

first_img31 January 2013 A team of researchers from Stellenbosch University’s (SU) Sustainability Institute have developed an innovative approach to upgrade housing and improve living conditions in informal settlements. The iShack, or improved shack concept, offers a potential solution to South Africa’s housing delivery backlog, increasing urbanisation and the growing number of informal settlements in the country. According to the UN Habitat State of the World’s Cities 2012/2013 report, 62% of the urban population in sub-Saharan Africa lives in slums. Such dwellings are characterised by poor living conditions and inadequate access to infrastructure such as basic energy, sanitation and water services. “Shacks are becoming the new norm – so what can we do today to improve the living conditions of people through energy intervention, lighting, cell phones, communication, upping security?” says Andreas Keller, one of the designers of the iShack. The sustainable housing concept allows people who don’t have brick and mortar houses to upgrade their existing shacks, or install new shacks, by incorporating solar power panels to meet basic energy needs and ecological design principles to make daily living a little bit more comfortable.Solutions for South Africa’s housing challenges In 2011, the National Research Foundation awarded a grant to SU to find ways to upgrade informal settlements, focussing on priority areas such as water, sanitation, food security, waste management, energy and general structural upgrades to shelters. The first iShack was built in October 2011. It drew the attention of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, which was so impressed with the idea that it provided grant funding for a pilot project to determine if the improved shack system can be applied at a large scale. Up to 100 shacks will either be newly built or refurbished, and two lucky families are already testing the first prototypes – one new, one refurbished – in the Enkanini Township just outside Stellenbosch. For one of these residents, Nosanjo Plaatjie, a single mother who works as a domestic worker once a week, and her three young children, the brand new iShack has changed their lives. Keller explains that it is important to test how well the iShack design works in new structures, as well as those that are already standing. If you take a quick look at the newly built eco-friendly shelter it doesn’t look that much different from any of the other makeshift wooden or corrugated houses in the area. But on closer inspection, the improvements are significant. Keller says the structural modifications using ecological design principles make the dwelling much more comfortable to live in. The large windows are positioned in such a way to achieve better air circulation and sunlight heating during the day. The sloped roof and overhang shades the structure on hot days, but in the winter months residents can also harness this handy feature to harvest rainwater. Access to power through solar panels Keller says that for communities living without electricity, access to power through the solar panels is one of the biggest benefits. Having electricity means that residents have more disposable income, as they don’t have to spend money on candles and paraffin for lighting and cooking. The iShack prototype is equipped with a photovoltaic solar panel capable of producing enough electricity to power three lights, a mobile phone charger and an outdoor motion detector spotlight, which reduces the risk of crime and helps people feel safer in their homes. Households can access these services on a pay-as-you-go basis, and upgrade the solar infrastructure to run more appliances such as a radio, television or fridge. With electricity residents can also charge their mobile phones at home, a luxury for many people who have to walk long distances to charge their phones elsewhere. Keller explains that a working mobile phone is a lifeline for many South Africans as it enables people to find jobs and earn a better income – as the resident of the second retrofitted iShack prototype discovered. “The man, who relies on casual painting jobs for his weekly income, was able to keep his phone charged and switched on to find more work,” he says. “Mobile phone connectivity is perhaps the greatest example of how the iShack is helping people. We take for granted the ability to be connected all the time.”Using recycled materials “One of the objectives of the project is to use existing materials,” Keller says. This also reduces the overall cost of the iShack. In the pilot houses, the developers have made use of recycled cardboard boxes and old Tetra Pak containers, such as long life milk boxes, for insulation between the exterior zinc surface and the interior. Flame-retardant paint reduces the risk of fires, and inside there are rows of recycled bricks to create a durable floor that can also protect against temperature changes. Keller says one of the most important aspects of the project is training, education and maintenance of solar power systems. Without this, technological interventions in community upgrades often fail. To ensure the iShack concept is successful, local entrepreneurs will receive accredited training in business and engineering principles to help community members maintain the technology in their houses. Technicians will be paid from user fees. “It is important to inform residents about the type of appliances they can use,” he says. “Direct current appliances are more energy efficient and designed to run on solar energy.” “We also have to tell residents about the maintenance of solar panels, because if you don’t clean them often it will reduce their efficiency and the number of solar units you can get out of them.” Keller and his team are also looking to set up energy hubs in the communities where iShacks are built. These facilities will be the base from where trained technicians assist communities and where residents can buy suitable appliances and top up their energy accounts.
