Banyana edge Ghana on penalties

first_img22 March 2012Banyana Banyana edged Ghana, ranked second in Africa, by five goals to four from the penalty spot after the teams had played to a 1-1 draw in an international friendly at Dobsonville Stadium in Soweto on Wednesday.South Africa’s goalkeeper, Thoko Mndaweni, starred by pulling off a superb save, diving to her left, from Ghana captain Florence Okoe in the penalty shootout. She then stepped up to slot the final spot kick to give Banyana the victory.Sport and Recreation Minister Fikile Mbalula was on hand to hand over the winner’s trophy to Banyana captain Amanda Dlamini.‘A good test’“The Ghana team gave us a good test, and these are the kind of matches we need before we get to London. We created a lot of chances but were not able to convert them,” said Banyana coach Joseph Mkhonza.In a clash played in front of a large crowd in chilly, wet conditions, Banyana showed just how much they have learned and improved by taking on top-class nations at the recent Cyprus Women’s Cup as they took the challenge to Ghana.The home side, ranked fourth in Africa, was unlucky not to go into the lead after just five minutes of play when striker Andisiwe Mgcoyi rose high to head home past Ghanaian goalkeeper Nana Ama-Asanetewaa, but Zimbabwean referee Pamela Chiwaya ruled that the tall South African forward had infringed on the visitor’s goalkeeper.GoalWith the South Africans looking dangerous on attack, a cross from the right struck the hand of Ghanaian defender Janet Egyir, and from the resulting penalty kick, Banyana Banyana striker Noko Matlou scored her 54th goal in her 69th international appearance as she fired the hosts into the lead in the 22nd minute.Clearly feeling the effects of several physical challenges from the first half, Ama-Asanetewaa was replaced at the start of the second half by Patricia Mantey, who did well to blunt several South African challenges.The home side had good opportunities to score more goals, with Mgcoyi presented with two superb close chances which were not capitalized on, while Matlou spooned a header over the cross bar just after half-time.EqualiserGhana managed to find the equaliser seven minutes into the second half, when goalkeeper Mndaweni mistimed a clearance effort which hit Mercy Myles and ended in the back of the South African goal net.Striker Sanah Mollo and winger Leandra Smeda got into the action in the second half at the expense of Mgcoyi and Mary Ntsweng, but the home side was not able to find the net again in open play.Refiloe Jane also got on to the park for Banyana Banyana in the fourth minute of optional time in the second half to earn her second cap, taking over from injured team captain Dlamini.Player of the matchIn delivering her usual level of consistency in the South African rearguard, central defender Janine van Wyk collected the Sasol Diski Queen (Player of the Match) award.After the contest, Banyana coach Joseph Mkhonza emphasized that the search is still on for players who can add additional value to the Banyana Banyana campaign at the London Olympics.“We still have a few training camps coming up, starting with the High Performance Centre in Potchefstroom on Thursday (22 March),” said Mkhonza.“We will use these camps to work on our finishing because if you look at this match, and the tournament in Cyprus, we failed to score the opportunities we created. But we should be able to rectify these errors by the end of our training camps,” added Mkhonza, who will be conducting workshops and player trials at the Sasol League Road Shows in Polokwane (Saturday, 31 March) and Nelspruit (Saturday, 14 April).Banyana Banyana’s training camp in Potchefstroom ends on 31 March.SAinfo reporterWould you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

Ohio Ag Weather and Forecast, May 20, 2019

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Dry weather settles in over the state today behind the rains that came through the eastern corn belt as expected yesterday. WE may still be watching a few renegade showers exit to the north and east this morning in the far eastern part of Ohio, but generally, we are looking pretty good. High pressure drifts across the southern tip of Lake Michigan today and will traverse southern Michigan tomorrow, ending up in SW Ontario tomorrow night. This will bring sunshine, blue sky and excellent drying for both days. That drying will be helped by strong winds that continue to blow today (more from the west and north) and tomorrow (from the south). Evaporation rates should be nearly at maximum, around a quarter of an inch of moisture per day. We have been talking about the Tuesday night-Wednesday period for a while now as being the key to good drying potential for the week on the whole. We still see some very minor chances for moisture coming in Wednesday morning over the state, but the bigger rain totals all rain themselves out to our west over IL. We expect a few showers Wednesday through the first part of the day may bring a few hundredths to a tenth to perhaps 40% of Ohio. There is a little bit more of a threat of moisture for Thursday now, as we can’t rule out a cluster or two of thunderstorms rotating into far SW parts of Ohio, but generally the state on the whole misses out. In those thunderstorms, rains can be up to .5”. but we should see coverage limited to 30% of the state. Friday is fully dry. This weekend, we start dry mostly on Saturday, then see scattered showers develop Sunday over the northern half of the state. From I-70 northward, we expect rains from .1”-.6” with coverage at 80%. But, we still have nothing going on Saturday over the southern half of the state. Memorial Day itself on Monday, we are dry over most of the state, with only few thunderstorms possible for far northern areas, from US 20 northward. So, generally, we had been looking for some rain over Memorial Day weekend in our forecast, but our thoughts had been for Monday…we are just pulling that forward a bit. The map at right shows rain potential through Memorial Day. The rest of the 10 day window may show an increase in activity in the far northern part of the state, with a few showers and storms for Tuesday the 28th from US 30 northward. Rains there can be up to half an inch with 70% coverage. Then on Wednesday those scattered shower sag farther south, with another .05”-.4” possible from I-70 northward. Both of those days we see no moisture over the rest of the state, and we should see good sunshine. For the extended 11-16 day forecast window, we start wet with showers and thunderstorms state wide for Thursday the 30th and Friday the 31st. Combined rain totals can be from .25”-1” with coverage at 90%. The for the first and 2nd, we end up with additional showers from I-70 southward, triggering up to .75” and 70% coverage. For the 3rd and 4th, Scattered showers are back for most of the state. At this time, we are projecting .1”-.5” with 70% coverage. So, the best window of opportunity for the state looks to be coming together for this week.last_img read more

5 Services That Can Upgrade Your Video Chat Experience

first_imgchris mcconnell Related Posts If you are bored with the likes of Skype, FaceTime or Google Hangouts or simply want to see what else is out there, here is some fun new video-chat candy to check out.Skype? Dinosaur. Airtime? Flop. FaceTime and Google Hangouts? Bland. As defaults, they are just there with an Apple device or a Google account. Workable, sure, but are they going to blow your mind in terms of functionality? Maybe a few years ago. If you’re ready to see the latest in the world of video chat (and even if you aren’t), I’ve got some goodies for you. Here are a few of my favorite video chat applications as of late. I know you were always told not to take things from strangers, but I promise, this candy for your eyes is totally safe.PerchPerch bills itself as an always-on video portal. This is perfect for a remote workforce. Let’s say you work from home (sorry, Yahoo workers) and you want to stay in touch with the rest of your design team at company HQ. Simply mount an iPad on the wall in your workspace and mount another near a colleague’s desk in the office. Fire up Perch and it’s like you’re there. Perch auto-detects a person looking at the screen and knows it’s time to unmute and let you talk. With multiple connected devices it’s easy to switch between different locations.SqwiggleSqwiggle is very similar to Perch in that it functions as an always-on video connection that is perfectly suited for the remote workforce. It differs in a few interesting ways, though. First, Sqwiggle lets you break out into teams (group video chats) rather than focusing on one individual portal. Additionally, the entire team can use a feature called stream (a chat box on the side of the screen) to share things like links, code, photos or video. It’s a lightweight version of something like Teambox (which just added video chat, too).RabbitRabbit has positioned itself for the non-business consumer set. It’s geared toward letting you hangout with your friends when you are all in different places. Like what? You can actually watch videos or listen to music together with your friends online. Want to share your photos with your friends in real time? With Rabbit you can.GlideNope, I haven’t forgotten about your smartphone. Enter Glide, an app that facilitates video texting. This is a really cool concept that lets you send your friends video messages that can either be viewed live or later. Since everything gets saved in the cloud, you don’t have to worry about being out of the loop if you are offline for any reason. Glide lets you talk to your fiends either individually or as a group. No need to schedule anything in advance. The autoplay feature lets you relive conversations as they happened. If you need it, texting through Glide is still an option.ooVooooVoo tries to do it all. It works on your desktop (Mac and PC), as well as on your mobile. It does group video chat (with up to 12 people) and lets you record all the action for later. ooVoo lets you leave video messages up to five minutes long for those absent. You can share files, chat, share your screen or consume content together. On top of all of that, you can make free voice calls. Note: the PC version is currently much more robust than the Mac version.

Crash diets rapid weight loss affects back

first_imgCrash diets and rapid weight loss can be harmful to your health, especially the back, says an expert.Meenakshi Sharma, Spine Specialist at Qi Spine Clinic, shares how:* Undernourished body, weak muscles: Cutting back on essential food items such as grains and fruits by following low carbohydrate diets can make you lose out on some of the vital nutrients required by the body. This type of under-nourishment affects the whole body. Muscles are not able to function properly causing them to become easily strained. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’How it affects the back: Your lower back and abdominal muscles provide a base of support for your spine, holding your body upright. The muscles of the lower back and abdomen are meant to work together to support the upper body and the spine’s alignment. As these muscles might not get the essential nutrients required, their ability to repair may become poor. At the same time the amount of time taken for these muscles to recover from injury may increase. Also the muscles fatigue early if the nutrition is not as per the requirement. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixSolution: A well balanced diet including appropriate amount of protein, carbohydrates and fat should be taken. The diet depends on the body type, Body Mass Index and Basal metabolic rate. Percentage of protein, carbohydrates, and fats should be taken according to the body requirement and needs. Along with this, an exercise regime comprising aerobics and weight training should be included.  * Dehydration and spinal discs: Some of the low carbohydrate diets are meant to increase water loss in the body for quick weight reduction. If followed without proper guidance, the body can easily become dehydrated while following these diets. Major content of spinal discs are water. Dehydration could occur in the discs as well.If your body’s water content drops by as little as two percent, you will feel fatigued. If it drops by 10 percent, you will experience significant health problems, such as arthritis and back pain.How it affects the back: Our body is made up of about 70 percent of water. Weight loss that results in a significant amount of water and mineral loss contributes to decreased bone density. Weaker bones can cause spinal misalignments and result in pain. Spinal discs in the body need fluid to maintain height and their ability to absorb shock. Dehydration can lessen the fluids available to spinal discs, which could lead to speedy disc degeneration, bulging or herniation.Solution: Make sure you drink eight to 10 glasses of water daily. Dehydration is no form of weight loss. Also, it doesn’t aid in weight loss. With dehydration, you also lose many important nutrients which are required for the body and the spinal discs. *Over-exercising and back pain: In addition to crash diets, when you are over-exercising, without the correct nutrients, you are accelerating the process of bone loss and muscle loss.How it affects back: Calories are a source of energy and repair for the body. If your body is working your muscles extra hard without minimal fuel, then it becomes susceptible to strains. Not resting enough can also add to the back pain. Not to forget that the high intensity workouts lead to a lot of pressure on the spine in turn jelly i.e. the disc.Solution: Over-exercising and poor nutrition adversely affects your back and may cause back pain. One should also know the right form and extent of exercise required. Wrong forms of exercise loads the spine and could affect the discs and the muscle.last_img read more
