Society ‘must help tackle alcohol abuse’

first_img23 September 2011 Social Development Minister Bathabile Dlamini has called on families, communities and civil society to help in the fight against alcohol abuse. Addressing journalists during a post-Cabinet briefing in Cape Town on Thursday, Dlamini said it was not acceptable for taverns to be located near churches or schools. She said the government was concerned that teachers sometimes bought alcohol from those taverns, and that they also made it easier for pupils to bring alcohol to school. Dlamini said the government was sticking to its plans to increase the age restriction for accessing alcohol by young people from 18 to 21 years. She said that at 21 years, one would be more mature than an 18-year-old. Dlamini said that while there were people making a living out of taverns, there were more whose lives were being destroyed by alcohol consumption. She said that Cabinet had approved a programme of action to deal with substance abuse. This, she said, included various departments coming up with policies to deal with the problem. The government will launch Social Development Month in Mokgopong in Limpopo province on 4 October. Activities are being organised under the theme, “Working together to build caring and sustainable communities.” The Cabinet also wished the country’s matriculants good luck ahead of the their final examinations, which start within the next 30 days, and urged South Africans to support pupils during this time of the year.

Scotland’s best here to test their skills

first_imgBy BEN HARRISScotland, the host nation of the 2011 World Cup, have brought over their strongest possible squad to the 2013 X-Blades National Touch League at Coffs Harbour.They have taken the best players from their men’s, women’s and mixed opens divisions, and put them in the one team in the mixed opens division.At last year’s European Championships, where 20 nations participated, the kilt-wearing Scots were overall winners of the opens division – a first for the country. But with a World Cup in two years, Scotland coach Robbie McKenzie says the NTLs act as a warm-up event.“Not only is there an requirement to develop in terms of touch physicality and mentality but it is getting over to this environment, getting to see how it works and getting used to the temperature and all that. It’s a no brainer,” McKenzie said.“We have done a lot of hard work in terms of analysis. The style that we are seeing is not a surprise for us because we know how we should be playing against that type of style but we don’t have the quality of opposition in Europe to actually do it.“We have the knowledge but it is a case of coming over and applying that knowledge on the field. It has taken a little bit longer to do it but each game we are going up and up.”Since the 2011 World Cup in Edinburgh, McKenzie said the Scotland Touch Association has been busy promoting the sport.“It has enabled us to get into schools a little bit more,” he said.“We are in a constant battle with other sports obviously in Scotland, even Scottish Rugby Union we are in a battle with them to try and have touch as a main developmental tool for the game.“We are fighting those battles but to have that spotlight on us in Edinburgh in 2011 has absolutely helped us. It created a lot of money and investment in the game as well. It is working well for us.”You can keep up-to-date with all of the latest news and information from the 2013 X-Blades National Touch League in the following ways:Websiteswww.ntl.mytouchfooty.comwww.austouch.com.auSocial MediaFacebook – www.facebook.com/touchfootballaustraliaTwitter – www.twitter.com/touchfootyaus (be sure to use the hashtag #NTL2013)Instagram – search for ‘Touch Football Australia’YouTube – www.youtube.com/touchfootballausTouch Football Australia will be live streaming matches on their YouTube page.Related LinksScotland touchlast_img read more

201516 NBA Preview The NewLook Spurs Are Gonna Be Really Good

And here’s what CARMELO thinks of San Antonio’s key players: Last season seemed like Kawhi Leonard’s coming-out party, but with Aldridge now in the mix, Leonard could see fewer double teams, which in turn could lead to even better production than CARMELO expects. The San Antonio Spurs, hoping to make another title run, loaded up on talent in the offseason. They landed coveted free agent LaMarcus Aldridge along with David West. They brought back Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili, and signed Kawhi Leonard and Danny Green to new deals. The new players are expected to assimilate quickly with the Spurs veterans, but that’s not guaranteed, which is why coach Gregg Popovich admits that developing team chemistry is his most pressing concern. “It’s always going to be talked about throughout the league by everyone because that’s probably the biggest key of winning,” Green said. “You can have all the right pieces. But if you don’t have chemistry, you’re probably not going to be successful. So regardless of what your roster is, chemistry is the most important thing in this league, in this game. You hear it all the time. We may get tired of it. But it’s really important. We know how important it is.”FiveThirtyEight’s CARMELO projection system expects the Spurs to go 56-26 in 2015-16: Tony Parker changed up his fitness routine in an attempt to stay healthy, but Parker hasn’t played in more than 70 games in any of the last three seasons. In other words, the 33-year-old’s health may be an issue, and CARMELO clearly thinks Parker is in the twilight of his career. He needs to shoot much better than 32.3 percent from the field, which is what he produced over the summer in the EuroBasket tournament, for the Spurs to have a legitimate chance. Tim Duncan is 39, but Old Man Riverwalk will benefit tremendously from the addition of Aldridge. Duncan remains a factor on the pick-and-roll, and despite losing some athleticism, he anticipates well enough on defense to almost always be in position to help. (Also, if you were judging Duncan only by the company he keeps, check out his top four comps!) His skills are declining, but Manu Ginobili remains important to the Spurs because of his ability to run the second group on offense, which, according to some players, has shown better chemistry thus far in camp than the starters. Long jumpers and turnarounds in the post diminish LaMarcus Aldridge’s true shooting percentage, and he’ll need to make quicker decisions with the ball in San Antonio than he did in Portland. David West is one of the NBA’s most accurate mid-range shooters, but his presence in San Antonio’s locker room will be just as important as his contributions on the court. Danny Green, a premier 3-and-D wing, seems to be in the perfect situation for his game to flourish. Just don’t let him put the ball on the floor.

Ohio States Lenzelle Smith Jr Guys gotta get their confidence back

Senior guard Lenzelle Smith Jr. (32) drives to the basket during a game against Northwestern Feb. 19 at the Schottenstein Center. OSU won, 76-60.Credit: Shelby Lum / Photo editorCollege basketball seasons are bound to come with their respective twists and turns. Even an unblemished record doesn’t come without an off night or a close game.One day a team can be seemingly nailing every shot it takes and blowing out opponents while on the next, it can’t hit the broad side of a barn.During the Ohio State men’s basketball team’s current two-game losing streak, the Buckeyes (22-8, 9-8, sixth in the Big Ten) have experienced more of the latter.In particular, shooting from long range has been a struggle for OSU in losses to Penn State and Indiana.Against the Nittany Lions, coach Thad Matta’s team shot a pedestrian 29.4 percent from beyond the arc. As rough as that performance was, it paled in comparison to what OSU did against Indiana Sunday.For the first time since Jan. 10, 2004, OSU failed to connect from three-point land, missing all 11 of its attempts, and fell to the Hoosiers, 72-64.Senior guard Lenzelle Smith Jr. said after the loss to Indiana, the struggles from beyond the arc are an easy fix, however.“Shooting, that’s about confidence,” Smith Jr. said in an interview with Cleveland.com. “Guys gotta get their confidence back and we’ve got shooters so there’s no excuse. We’ve got to put the ball in the bucket. We’ve got guys who can make threes and we’ve got to step up and obviously put the ball in the bucket.”Smith Jr. tied junior forward LaQuinton Ross for a team-high with 19 points against the Hoosiers and shot 60 percent from the floor, but he missed both of his attempts from beyond the arc. He also shot just 1-6 from deep against Penn State.Matta said he has sensed confidence is dipping for OSU, especially when pressure is turned up.“We were rolling until Thursday night (against Penn State), in all seriousness,” Matta said to Cleveland.com after the loss to Indiana. “I think we’re really lacking in a confidence issue, we’re lacking in a toughness issue in terms of playing through situations. Those are things that somehow, some way, we’ve got to get corrected.”The Buckeyes’ need to regain their confidence is a high priority as the regular season draws to a close. They currently sit half a game behind Iowa and Nebraska in the Big Ten standings, who are tied for fourth in the Big Ten. The top four teams in the standings receive a first-round bye in the Big Ten Tournament, set to begin March 13.Smith Jr. was quick to add that even though the confidence has been lacking lately, the mood in the locker room doesn’t give any reason to believe the trend will continue.“We’re a great team when we come to execute and when we’re on top of our game,” Smith Jr. said to Cleveland.com. “I said we can beat any team in the country, and I’m going to stick by that … I should be happy with what we should produce at the end of the season.“I’m not panicking. I’m not worried about anything.”Since using a huge second half to beat Minnesota, 64-46, Feb. 22, it appears something has been off with the team.Ross said in an interview with Cleveland.com a big part of that is a lack of focus — something that could become a big problem if it is allowed to continue.“We just get too comfortable at times during the game, thinking we’ve got the lead and (that) we’re going to be able to hold it,” Ross said of the 21-5 run the Buckeyes allowed against Indiana, which the Hoosiers used to take the lead for good. “Not thinking that those other teams we’re playing are just as good as us. They’re putting their foot on the gas, and we’re taking ours off it.”Ross, OSU’s leading scorer, knows a thing or two about losing focus during a game. Ross was ejected during OSU’s game against Northwestern for shoving a player and committed a technical foul against Indiana for a similar infraction.Those are the type of things that can prove costly, Matta said, especially late in the season.“I told LaQuinton: ‘Hey, man, you get a technical foul and it’s your second foul and then you’re having your way in the second half and you foul out of the game,’” Matta said to Cleveland.com. “Little things. Those are the types of things that say, ‘Hey, we’ve got to get our concentration back, get our focus back and an understanding of what we’re doing.’”OSU’s next opportunity to try working through the rough spots in its play comes against No. 22 Michigan State (22-7, 11-5, tied for second in the Big Ten) when the Spartans are set to come to Columbus Sunday. Tipoff is slated for 4:30 p.m. read more

Klopp pokes fun at Super League reports

first_imgLiverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has joked he would be in favour of European Super League because it would mean fewer games and more money.The German manager laughed off the notion of a European ‘Super League’ by joking it would be a boost for his team to play fewer games.Speaking after Liverpool’s 1-1 draw against Arsenal on Saturday, Klopp batted away the idea of the competition in his typically jovial style.“It sounds really nice because it sounds like much less games and much more money,” he said, according to FourFourTwo.Jadon Sancho, Borussia DortmundCrouch: Liverpool could beat Man United to Jadon Sancho Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Peter Crouch wouldn’t be surprised to see Jadon Sancho end up at Liverpool one day instead of his long-term pursuers Manchester United.“I am completely fine with how the league football is at the moment. At least, it’s an idea [the ‘Super League’] that we don’t do immediately.”Klopp also claimed football governing bodies, FIFA and UEFA’s approach to proposed competition revamps are flawed because they do not seek sufficient input from clubs and other stakeholders.“I’m not even sure if somebody spoke about it, to be honest. It looks like all the other wonderful ideas of FIFA and UEFA,” he added.“They do them immediately, they don’t ask. And then you see, ‘Oh, okay, we have 20 games more and not more money’.”last_img read more

Recordbreaking fentanyl bust made at San Ysidro Port of Entry

first_imgRecord-breaking fentanyl bust made at San Ysidro Port of Entry Posted: August 8, 2018 SAN DIEGO (KUSI) — A Tijuana man was arrested at San Ysidro Port of Entry Wednesday after federal agents allegedly found more than 20,000 fentanyl pills hidden in his car — a cache believed to be the largest amount of the deadly narcotic in pill form ever seized along the U.S.-Mexico border.Fernando Jesus Peraza, 38, was taken into custody at about 2:30 a.m., according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office in San Diego.Agents allegedly found the drug in four packages concealed in the passenger-side rear quarter panel of Peraza’s car. The pills were designed to resemble M30s, or oxycodone tablets, officials said.At Peraza’s initial appearance in the case Wednesday afternoon, prosecutors requested that the suspect, a U.S. citizen who works in San Diego County, remain detained due to flight risk.“This is the biggest fentanyl-pill seizure we’ve seen along the Southwest Border, and it’s likely a national record,” San Diego-area U.S. Attorney Adam Braverman said. “I’m relieved that these pills are off the streets because of the vigilant work of law enforcement.”If convicted of the drug-smuggling charge against him, Peraza will face a maximum penalty of life in prison and a $1 million fine, according to prosecutors.U.S. Magistrate Judge Jill Burkhardt scheduled a detention hearing for Friday morning and a preliminary hearing for Aug. 21.
