Last gasp Chadli goal breaks Japan hearts

first_img0Shares0000Nacer Chadli wheels away in celebration after scoring a last gasp winner against Japan in the Round of 16 of the FIFA World Cup. PHOTO/FIFAROSTOV-ON-DON, Russia, Jul 2- Nacer Chadli scored a stunning injury-time winner as Belgium fought back from 2-0 down to defeat Japan 3-2 and advance to a World Cup quarter-final showdown with Brazil here Monday.Chadli’s superbly worked goal in the fourth minute of stoppage time was the final act of an epic last-16 battle that saw Belgium become the first team in 48 years to successfully overturn a 2-0 deficit in a World Cup knockout game. The Red Devils will face five-time champions Brazil in Kazan on Friday after scoring three second-half goals without reply to break Japan’s dogged resistance.Goals by Genki Haraguchi and Takashi Inui in four devastating minutes had put Japan 2-0 up early in the second half to leave Belgium reeling.However, the Red Devils responded with quick goals of their own as Jan Vertonghen, at fault for Haraguchi’s goal, and Marouane Fellaini both scored headers before Chadli’s dramatic winner in Rostov.Relieved Belgium manager Roberto Martinez saluted his side’s resolve.“No negatives today, it was about getting through,” Martinez said. “It is a day to be very proud of these players.“Keep believing in Belgium. In the World Cup you want to be perfect but it’s about getting through, it’s about winning.”Having also exited the last 16 in both 2002 and 2010, Japan suffered knock-out stage heartbreak for the third time.From the start, the Blue Samurai’s tactics were clear – harass and hurry their opponents every time they were on the ball, while living off scraps.It almost paid off.Japan defender Maya Yoshida tries to make a gy,nastic clearance as Belgium’s Marouane Fellaini watches on. PHOTO/FIFAA long-range shot from Eden Hazard was Belgium’s brightest chance in the first 45 minutes as Japan kept close tabs on Belgium striker Romelu Lukaku.After a goalless first-half, the game exploded into life after the break.Japan took the lead when they won possession deep in their own half.The ball was moved downfield quickly and when Vertonghen failed to intercept the final pass, Haraguchi sprinted clear.He placed his shot just past Thibaut Courtois’ despairing glove and inside the far post on 48 minutes to delight Japanese fans.Falling behind rattled the Belgians as Hazard clattered the post moments later.Japan doubled their lead on 52 minutes when Inui unleashed a thunderbolt shot off his right boot which flew past the despairing Courtois.Desperate for a goal to get them back in the game, Lukaku headed wide with an hour approaching.Confidence grew in the Japanese ranks with attacking midfielder Kagawa calling the shots.Belgium’s Axel Witsel vies for the ball with Japan’s Shinji Kagawa during their World Cup last 16 game at Rostov on Don. PHOTO/FIFAWith 25 minutes left, Martinez swapped Fellaini and Chadli for Dries Mertens and Yannick Carrasco, which sparked the Belgium response.Vertonghen made amends for his mistake in the build-up to Japan’s opening goal when his speculative header from out wide looped over Eiji Kawashima’s grasp on 69 minutes.Then Belgium drew level when Hazard’s pin-point ball found Fellaini in the middle and the Manchester United midfielder unleashed an unstoppable header on 74 minutes.It was end-to-end stuff for the final quarter of an hour.As his defence started to tire, goalkeeper Kawashima kept Japan in the game his side with two saves in quick succession to deny Chadli and Lukaku.At the other end, Courtois saved Keisuke Honda’s wickedly curling free shot which led to the winning goal.The Belgium goalkeeper cleared the ball, Kevin de Bruyne spotted Thomas Meunier unmarked out wide and the Paris Saint-Germain winger whipped in a superb cross.Lukaku, who was marked, left it for Chadli to tap home and cap Belgium’s stunning win right before the final whistle.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

CAP REFORMS HAVE MAJOR IMPLICATIONS FOR DONEGAL FARMERS – PAT THE COPE

first_imgIreland North West MEP Pat the Cope Gallagher has said the political agreement brokered this week by the European Parliament, the European Commission and the Irish Presidency on the Reform of the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) will have major implications here.Mr. Gallagher said today: “I am pleased that a political agreement has been finalised under the Irish Presidency as this Reform will have major implications for farmers, their families, the agri-food sector and rural communities throughout the North West and Donegal.“As the dust settles on the agreement it is clear that significant aspects of the new CAP including its implementation and interpretation will be down to the Irish Government and the Minister. “Member States will be afforded the necessary flexibility under the new CAP to work with the specificities of their individual sectors. This must result in equality and fairness in the distribution of direct payments and it is essential that the Minister fully engages with farmers over the coming months to ensure that this is the case.The political agreement includes the following provisions of importance to farmers in the North West:1. A new system of direct payments including a move away from historical references to an area based payment and greening of 30%.2. Flexibility for Member States to implement internal convergence whereby every farmer reaches a minimum payment of 60% of a national or regional average by 2019, with losses capped at 30%. 3. Up to 30% of basic payments under pillar one will be dependent on compliance with new Greening measures.4. The introduction of a mandatory scheme for young farmers (those under 40) including a top up payment of up to 25% for the first five years of installation.5. A streamline menu of rural development measures under Pillar 2 which will be co-financed by the State. Under the menu of options the State can support activity such as the LEADER programme, mountain areas, forestry, farm modernisation, farm safety, farm advisory services and innovation in the agricultural sector.  CAP REFORMS HAVE MAJOR IMPLICATIONS FOR DONEGAL FARMERS – PAT THE COPE was last modified: June 27th, 2013 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:CAP REFORMS HAVE MAJOR IMPLICATIONS FOR DONEGAL FARMERS – PAT THE COPElast_img read more

Donegal family chosen to star in global TV advert

first_imgA Letterkenny family has been chosen to front an international advertising campaign by global whole food nutrition giant Juice Plus+.Mary and Seamus Penrose, along with their two children Abbie (3) and Jamie (5), are to be the faces of the multinational health supplement company’s latest media campaign which is will be filmed in Switzerland next week.The local family will fly business class to Basel today for an all-expenses paid six-day trip of a lifetime. Mary and Seamus Penrose, who are Ireland’s leading Juice Plus+ franchisees as part of their business Sculpt Your Life, are among only three families from across Europe to be taking part in the high level advertising production.The new promotional video is expected to be rolled out world-wide on social media and selected mainstream media later this year.Former Crana College secondary school teacher Mary and former carpenter Seamus were both delighted and “a little stunned” when first approached by the company’s marketing team to represent Ireland and the UK in the Juice Plus+ Child Health Study campaign.“It was huge surprise to be asked to get involved in the Juice Plus+ worldwide marketing campaign. The offer came totally out of the blue but we quickly decided as a family that it was an opportunity we simply couldn’t refuse. “Abbie and Jamie just loved the idea of being movie stars, if only just for a week.“We don’t quite know what to expect but, having worked with Juice Plus+ for three years, we’re certain the experience will be nothing short of fantastic. We are one of only three families taking part with the others being flown in from Spain and Italy,” she added.The Juice Plus+ Children’s Health Study campaign is centred on promoting healthy living in children – something that is no stranger to the Penrose household.Mary explained: “The concept of the campaign video involves families working with a health coach and nutritionist to face the challenges of getting kids to eat nutritious whole food.“During filming we’ll be interviewed on a range of healthy living aspects to our lives including the importance of getting enough fruit and vegetables in our family meals, the challenges faced in encouraging our kids to eat healthily and the role of Juice Plus+ in our children’s nutrition. “Healthy living is very important in our house and we strive to ensure that, with the help of Juice Plus+ as part of a balanced diet, we get all the whole food nutrition we’ll ever need.“Since I made the big decision to become a Juice Plus+ distributor three years ago all of our lives and lifestyles have been transformed. It has provided us with a family friendly, health-promoting, work-life balance that allows us to live life on our own terms while running our increasingly successful Sculpt Your Life family business from home.“At the heart of Sculpt Your Life is a dedication to encourage people to make little lifestyle changes that can have a huge effect on health. This media campaign fits cosily into our belief that as adults it is up to us to lead by example by adopting healthier lifestyles. More fruit and vegetables instead of sweets and fast food, drinking plenty of the right fluids and getting more exercise are simple ways to introduce our kids to a healthier lifestyle.

Caulker wants international return – with Scotland

first_imgSteven Caulker is targeting a return to international football – with Scotland.West Londoner Caulker played for England in 2012 while a Tottenham player but that was in a friendly, meaning he remains eligible to turn out for Scotland, where his grandmother was born.The 27-year-old from Hounslow has previously spoken of his battles with addiction and depression but has been enjoying a good season with Turkish club Alanyaspor.Scotland boss Steve Clarke is currently without a number of defenders.And Caulker, who made 48 league starts for QPR during a troubled time at Loftus Road and more recently had a spell at Dundee, has told Scotland coach Steven Reid he wants a call-up.“Steven has made it clear he’d like to be considered,” Reid told the Daily Record.“Obviously, we’ll monitor the situation now, watch the games, hopefully get out and see him.“The key point, though, is that he’s gone out of his way to make that clear.“He phoned me directly. So there’s an interest there. He’s had a promising start over there, that’s for sure.“Steven definitely could be an asset. He has Premier League experience and played for some big clubs. So we definitely can’t discount it.“He’s been in good form for his club side and doing well in the league.“It seems like he’s in a really good place at the minute, he’s enjoying his football and life again.”See also:Dundee reject an offer for CaulkerCaulker signs for Turkish club Alanyaspor Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebookby Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksRecommended for youAspireAbove.comRemember Pauley Perrette?

Cartier finalist fights illiteracy in South Africa

first_imgNthabi Sibanda was shortlisted as a finalist in the Cartier Women’s Initiative Awards. Puo has produced story books featuring its signature characters, Lula and Lebo, a brother and sister who live in Johannesburg with their pet chameleon. The stories teach children about themes such as colours, parts of the body and transportation, all with Africa-related themes. Large illustrated flashcards help children to become familiar with the images and names of different family members, animals or things that they may see or hear about in their daily lives.(Images: Nthabi Sibanda)MEDIA CONTACTS• Bhekiwe NxumaloPuo Educational Products+27 11 483 3008RELATED ARTICLES• Transforming waste to wealth • A winning open education system • Education at the movies • Getting needy kids hooked on booksWilma den HartighSouth African entrepreneur Nthabi Sibanda was shortlisted as a finalist in the 2012 Cartier Women’s Initiative Awards, an annual international initiative to identify, support and encourage projects by women entrepreneurs who lead companies in sectors ranging from disaster relief to sanitary waste management, education, healthcare and employment.Sibanda’s entry stood out from more than 1 000 applications, and she made it onto the list of 18 finalists worldwide, with only three candidates shortlisted in the Sub-Saharan Africa region.The business plan competition was created in 2006 by French jeweller and watchmaker Cartier; the Women’s Forum, the first forum of its kind that advances women’s empowerment; global management consulting firm McKinsey & Company; and the INSEAD business school.Every year, six female entrepreneurs, each representing a major world region, are selected from 18 finalists. The Middle East and North Africa feature in their own award region, alongside Latin America, North America, Europe, sub-Saharan Africa and Asia-Pacific.The awards initiative is playing an important role in helping women entrepreneurs succeed in the world of business.A new approach to educationSibanda is the founder of Puo Educational Products (“puo” is a Sesotho word for language), a company that produces bilingual printed and digital learning content for children under the age of nine years.Puo’s approach to education is distinct in that the material is both bilingual and relevant to children growing up on the continent as the products are based on African themes, languages and heritage.Through a range of books, flash cards, puzzles and posters Sibanda is making a contribution to improving literacy in the country, promoting a love for reading and fostering an appreciation of South Africa’s cultural and language heritage.She feels honoured that her work has been recognised on such a prestigious platform. “It validates what we do,” Sibanda says. “It is recognition and encouragement to continue.”Puo educational materials are approved by the Department of Basic Education, and the company is a member of the Publishing Association of South Africa. A personal need becomes a businessSibanda’s business idea came about when she wanted to teach her children about their African heritage and native languages. She started looking for reading material in indigenous languages, but struggled to find anything suitable.“When I went looking for books in the retail space I couldn’t find anything,” she says. “And even those I did find were not great quality.”What she did find was shelves filled with stories from western countries, featuring little-girl explorers or safari adventures.“But where was the African heritage?” she wondered, surprised by this gap in the market.Sibanda decided to undertake her own market research and discovered a real need. “Statistics show that only 17% of published material for children is in African languages, and this figure includes the school market,” she says.This was all the motivation she needed to establish Puo Educational Products, which began with flash cards to learn words, puzzles to learn to count, and posters representing Africa and its culture.Sibanda explains that publishers such as Oxford and Penguin do print African-language books, but Puo’s material is innovative as it is supplying the children’s market with bilingual editions, published in English and either Sesotho, isiZulu or isiXhosa.“We want children to be open to the world yet proud of their African heritage,” she says.Honouring her African roots through languageAlthough she has no background in teaching or publishing, Sibanda treasures her African heritage and culture.“I grew up in exile in the US, Zambia and Lesotho, and I’ve always been fascinated by language,” she says. “I only started learning my native African language when I was eight, in Lesotho.”She has extensive business knowledge, having spent five years in management consultancy at Accenture and another five at the Women’s Development Bank, as a consultant in enterprise and community development.“What I wanted to do was create vibrant and creative bilingual material for children that can educate in a fun way and at the same time nurture a love for reading,” she explains.The importance of bilingualismSouth Africa has a great linguistic diversity with eleven official languages, yet business and schooling are mainly conducted in English as a first language, with Afrikaans as the second.The most commonly spoken languages in different regions in the country are isiZulu, isiXhosa, Setswana and Sesotho, but Sibanda believes that more should be done to promote South Africa’s numerous languages.The beautifully-illustrated materials provide a solution to this predicament.Puo has produced story books featuring its signature characters, Lula and Lebo, a brother and sister who live in Johannesburg with their pet chameleon. The stories teach children about themes such as colours, parts of the body and transportation, all with Africa-related themes. The materials can be purchased from Puo’s online store, or from bookshops such as Exclusive Books. T-shirts in different languages are also available through Puo’s online store.Research has shown that a second language benefits children in numerous ways, such as cognitive development, multicultural appreciation and even economic benefits. Reading a bilingual book gives children insight into the structure, unique features and word order of two languages.Sibanda says it is important to start the learning process during the early childhood development stage.“At this age children will earn and speak a language much more easily,” she says. “Bilingualism makes children more adaptable, appreciative of other languages, cultures, as well as their own – our children must know where they come from. “Through Puo’s educational material, Sibanda feels that she is making a contribution to preserve Africa’s languages.“Through language, children feel a sense of belonging and there is so much to celebrate about culture in Africa,” she says.Future expansionSibanda says a great opportunity exists to expand Puo’s reach to other African countries, as well as Europe and the US.Soon their products will be available in digital format. Sibanda has entered into a partnership with a local Apple products retailer who is providing schools with iPads, in which Puo’s content will feature.“The digital platform is an obvious learning tool,” she says, adding that there is a good market for mobile apps in South Africa.Puo also hopes to develop an app that will be available in the retail space, particularly as more children are becoming tech-savvy and the number of smartphone users is increasing.Next year the team will be releasing a range of books about traditional African folk tales with a modern twist, another way to ensure that Africa’s rich oral tradition isn’t lost to future generations.“In and amongst our contemporary lives our African heritage is missing,” she says. “It may be a small company, but Puo has great scope and ambitions – we’re out to show the market what it lacks!”last_img read more

dSPACE supports AUTOSAR 4.3 features

first_imgdSPACE is one of the first embedded software development tool providers to support comprehensive functionality for the development and validation of some of the latest AUTOSAR 4.3 features in its products.

In addition, dSPACE can use its technical know-how to provide extensive support for customers and assist them in the introduction and validation of the new features.The main beneficiaries of the methods of the new AUTOSAR 4.3 standard are the developers of safety-critical driving functions, who are facing numerous challenges in ever shorter development cycles. These challenges include information authentication, global time-stamping, and better verification of data integrity in automotive bus networks such as CAN, CAN FD, FlexRay, or automotive Ethernet. This is where many test tools reach their limits. Likewise, many test departments in the automotive industry struggle with know-how and test methods to properly implement the new features.The dSPACE tool chain therefore supports its users throughout the entire development process, from single blocksets and tools for model-based development according to AUTOSAR 4.3 to turn-key HIL test systems for AUTOSAR 4.3-compliant ECUs. Furthermore, customers benefit directly from the broad expertise of dSPACE specialists. If desired, the specialists use their long-standing experience to accompany the customer projects, for example, to check and analyze network description files before they are used.Share this:TwitterFacebookLinkedInMoreRedditTumblrPinterestWhatsAppSkypePocketTelegram Tags: Tools & Software Continue Reading Previous Toshiba: evaluation board for three-phase BLDC motor drive ICsNext SECO announces new UDOO maker boardlast_img read more
