first_imgFormer Hearts of Oak and  South Africa club side Black Leopards, coach Kostadin Papic has defended his strikers, claiming they are not lacking composure in front of goal.Leopards dominated their PSL promotion/relegation playoff against Polokwane City on Wednesday night, but went down 1-0 at the Old Peter Mokaba Stadium.It was Leopards’ first loss in the playoffs.Speaking exclusively to Sport24 in a post-match interview, “Bill Clinton” denied that his target men lacked a golden finishing touch.“We don’t have a goal scoring problem,” said Papic.“Results just didn’t go our way. “We tried our best but we didn’t succeed.“It happens in football that you can dominate the game and end up with nothing to show at the end of the day.“We are working hard but it happens to everyone.”A loss for Lidoda Duvha meant they have surrendered their top playoff position to Boebie Solomons’s Polokwane City after two games played.The two sides are separated by a single point.

Reggae Girlz lose at the death

first_imgST GEORGE’S, Grenada (CMC):Jamaica remained winless in the CONCACAF Under-17 Women’s Championship after twice squandering leads to plunge to a 3-2 defeat to Costa Rica.Playing at the Grenada National Stadium on Sunday, Jamaica led 1-0 on 22 minutes and 2-1 at the 34th, but could not hang on to their advantage. They did appear on course for a share of the points before Maria Paula Salas struck in stoppage time to crush their hopes.The points were Costa Rica’s first of the tournament and they now sit third, while Jamaica remain rooted at the bottom of Group B.In the other game, the United States edged Mexico 1-0 go on top with six points from their two outings.Looking to atone for their heavy 8-1 defeat to the US on Friday, Jamaica started positively when Ebony Clarke capitalised on a defensive error to put the Caribbean side ahead in the 22nd minute.Del Campo penaltyThe Central American unit drew level from the penalty spot in the 29th minute through Valeria Del Campo, after Erin Mikalsen brought down Gloriana Villalobos in the box.However, Jamaica once again restored their lead when Tarania Clarke scored with a firm right-footed volley in the 34th minute, after being teed up by Ebony Clarke.Up 2-1 at half-time, Jamaica suffered a major setback when Alyssa Julien was sent off in the 70th minute, but their hopes of a maiden win in the competition remained, when they still led with 14 minutes left.Things fell apart, though when Merilyn Alvarado headed in the equaliser in the 76th minute and Salas then found the nets at the death to hand Costa Rica a dramatic victory.last_img read more


Institute for traditional medicines

first_img8 April 2004South Africa has set up a medical research unit to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of traditional African medicines, to develop new remedies for chronic conditions, to safeguard indigenous knowledge, and to provide consumer information and protection.The Institute for African Traditional Medicines will research and evaluate African traditional medicines and explore their potential to help address the health and economic needs of the country and the continent.The Institute is a reference centre at the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR), working in partnership with the Medical Research Council (MRC) and the World Health Organisation (WHO).Provincial references centres for African traditional medicines will be established in different provinces – the first one was launched in the Western Cape in February 2004 – to work in collaboration with the national centre in Pretoria, which was set up in August 2003.The launch of the institute came out of a research programme initiated by the health department and the MRC to test the effectiveness and safety of traditional medicines, as well as to to protect people from unscrupulous conduct and unproven medical claims within the traditional healing sector.“This is informed by our own African traditions of using herbs for medicinal purposes for treating sick people,” Health Minister Manto Tshabalala-Msimang said. “We think it is incorrect to use these medicines under the table. Let’s put them on the table so that we can see which ones are of quality, which ones are safe and so on.“South Africa is blessed with a rich heritage of medicinal plants that, through sustained research and development, could offer a solution to some of the common health problems the world is grappling with”, the minister said.Local production of traditional medicinal products held great potential for trade, job creation and poverty alleviation, and could also offer affordable alternatives to imported drugs, she added.According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), an estimated 80% of Africans use traditional medicines – compared to 60% of the world’s population in general – and approximately 200 000 traditional healers practise in South Africa.Although modern medicines are available in most countries on the continent, traditional medicines have often remained popular for historical and cultural reasons.WHO has stated that traditional medicines need to be evaluated for safety and effectiveness before they can be incorporated into – or excluded from – national health policies.Gilbert Matsabisa, head of the MRC’s indigenous knowledge systems unit, urged traditional healers to come forward and share their knowledge, saying the research would help “answer the sceptics”, showing that traditional medicines have value and an important place in health care.“The MRC has put in place systems to safeguard the intellectual property rights of individuals or communities, who may bring forward such agents for evaluation”, Matsabisa said.He said the Council would conduct tests to evaluate such medicines, develop substances that could be used for chronic conditions – including immune boosters -and provide information on these medicines to the general public.“The MRC will also serve as a clearing house for any claims that may be made of potential immune modulators and complementary medicines”, Matsabisa added.Source: BuaNews Want to use this article in your publication or on your website?See: Using SAinfo materiallast_img read more


Riaz’s effort in vain

first_imgThere were many Pakistan fans who wanted Shoaib Akhtar in the team for the semi-final against India. After the Indian innings, they must have been happy that the Pakistan team management chose to ignore the Rawalpindi Express and put faith in the new kid on the block, Wahab Riaz.If Shahid Afridi’s men managed to restrict the hosts to a gettable 260 for nine in the allotted 50 overs, despite a number of howlers in the field, a major part of the credit has to go to the 25-year-old left-arm pacer. After Virender Sehwag had given a brisk start, Riaz first pegged India back by trapping the Delhi opener in front and just when the home team was going strong, he turned the match on its head by taking out Virat Kohli and Yuvraj Singh off successive deliveries in the 26th over. The full swinging delivery that got Yuvraj, playing on his home ground, was a treat to watch. Riaz then got the skids under any possible Indian assault in the late overs by getting rid of captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni LBW and rounded off a superb spell by having Zaheer Khan caught behind in the last over.The enormity of the achievement – his maiden five-wicket haul in ODIs and that too in a World Cup semi-final against the archrivals – prompted him to kneel down before the Almighty. Anyone who has seen Riaz bowl will agree that there is something about him. Though he may not be in the Wasim Akram class yet and does not still have the ball that comes into the right-hander, there is another invaluable weapon in his armoury – pace. The left-armer was clocked at 149 km per hour once and was consistently above 140kmph. Riaz stepped in effortlessly on to the big stage and into the breach created by the considerable talent of Mohammad Amir and Mohammad Asif.advertisementWhen New Zealand’s Ross Taylor took a special liking to Akhtar in Pallekele, smashing him for 28 runs in one over – including three sixes and two fours – it prompted the veteran speedster to announce his retirement. The decision worked well for Pakistan. Riaz had not set the world on fire in the four matches he played before the semi-final, taking only three wickets. But he chose a grand stage to showcase his skill. Akram has interacted off and on with the youngster and if the Pakistan legend passes on some of his invaluable trade secrets and Riaz stays fit and motivated, the world can witness another fearsome paceman in full cry in the years to come.last_img read more


Jayalalithaa’s comments gross contempt of court: Chidambaram

first_imgHome Minister P ChidambaramHome Minister P Chidambaram on Tuesday dismissed Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa’s statement demanding his resignation on the ground he was elected in “fraudulent” manner in 2009 Lok Sabha polls calling it a “gross contempt of court”.Referring to her remarks in a press conference in New Delhi on the issue, he said “she knows that her candidate Rajakannappan has filed an election petition in the Madras High Court and that is pending since September 2009. Her statement, is therefore in gross contempt of court.”The Home Minister said that Jayalalithaa has the habit of “starting on the wrong foot” and “she has always had utter contempt for court proceedings and hence her statement today is not at all surprising”.He said Rajakannappan had also contested the Assembly elections last month and lost from one of the segments falling under his parliamentary constituency Sivaganga.”Perhaps, she would say that that election result was also fraudulent,” he said.Jayalalithaa said the alleged attack on Indian fishermen by the Sri Lankan Navy figured to a “great extent” during her talks with the Prime Minister.”There is a lot of discrepancies in the figure given by the Sri Lankan Government and the private agencies on the number of Sri Lankan Tamils still in the camps. So I requested the Prime Minister to verify and get the correct figure,” she said.The Tamil Nadu Chief Minister said she requested the Prime Minister to consider sending a delegation of MLAs from Tamil Nadu to Sri Lanka to see for themselves the living conditions of the Tamils displaced due to the decades-old civil war.advertisement”We would want the Tamils in Sri Lanka to lead a life of dignity that is on par with their Sinhala counterparts,” she said.She parried a question on whether she thought Tamils in Sri Lanka should have a separate state.Referring to ceding of Katchatheevu to Sri Lanka by India in 1974, she accused Karunanidhi of not approaching the Supreme Court seeking a stay for implementation of the agreement.”Despite a precedent of the Supreme Court declaring null and void the ceding of Berubari to the then East Pakistan, Mr Karunanidhi did not approach the Supreme Court,” she said.Demanding the revoking of the 1974 agreement on the grounds that it was never approved by both houses of the Parliament, Jayalalithaa said Katchatheevu should be taken back so that Indian fishermen can have a decent catch when they venture into the sea.

first_imgInformation and Broadcasting Minister Ambika Soni on Monday wrote to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh seeking his help for civil services (CS) aspirant Sukhsohit Singh, who has been suffering from thalassemia.The development comes days after Headlines Today launched a campaign for Sukhsohit in his fight against his rejection by the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) on medical grounds.”Human spirit must triumph over physical challenges and Sukhsohit needs your healing touch. It is appropriate occasion for UPA headed by you to show its human face. Sukhsohit’s rejection would discourage large number of challenged people to seek excellence,” Soni wrote to the prime minister.Sukhsohit has been rejected twice on medical grounds for being thalassemic, firstly by Safdarjung Hospital and later by Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital. He had become the first thalassemia major patient to clear the civil services examination in 2008 securing a rank of 833 in the general category despite his medical condition which require blood transfusion every 15 days.For more news on India, click here.For more news on Business, click here.For more news on Movies, click here.For more news on Sports, click here.last_img read more
