Life-saving gardaí honoured with bravery awards

first_imgTwo Milford gardaí have been honoured today for their heroic efforts in a water emergency this summer. Garda Mark O’Sullivan and Garda Gerard Doyle received ‘SEIKO Just in Time’ awards from Water Safety Ireland at a ceremony in UCD. The event honoured heroes from across Ireland who, thanks to their efforts in separate incidents, saved seventeen lives from drowning this year.Earlier this summer, Garda Mark O’ Sullivan and Garda Gerard Doyle rushed to Ballywhoriskey Pier off Fanad when they received reports of a woman entering the water. When they arrived, Garda O’ Sullivan threw a lifebuoy to the woman and she managed to grab onto of it. The two men pulled the woman close to the pier. Suddenly, the Gardaí recognised the woman was in shock and had very little strength. Demonstrating calm in a pressurised situation, Garda O’ Sullivan entered the water to hold onto the woman, while Garda Doyle retrieved a body brace from their patrol car. This was put around the woman’s head to provide extra support.Both Garda held onto the woman until further emergency arrived and removed the woman from the water. The woman was transported to hospital and made a full recovery.The heroic work of Garda O’ Sullivan and Garda Doyle was celebrated alongside eleven other SEIKO Just in Time award winners today.The rescue awards were presented to Garda Doyle and Sergeant Ger Dalton, who accepted the award on behalf of Garda Mark O’Sullivan, who could not attend due to prior commitments.

SA’s one-two in 400m hurdles

first_img23 March 2006South Africa claimed a one-two in the men’s 400 metres hurdles at the Commonwealth Games in Melbourne on Thursday, with LJ van Zyl and Alwyn Myburgh finishing in the gold and silver medal positions.Van Zyl was the slowest man out of the blocks, but came back strongly to run a Games record of 48.05 seconds, overhauling his compatriot down the straight.Myburgh, who finished seventh in the Athens Olympics, ran a season’s best 48.23 to comfortably secure silver ahead of Jamaica’s Kemel Thompson, who finished in 48.65.Another South African, Ter de Villiers, finished seventh.Following in Hestrie’s footstepsSouth Africa’s successes in field events continued as 19-year-old Anika Smith followed in the footsteps of Hestrie Cloete by winning the women’s high jump.Smith equalled her personal best of 1.91 metres to finish three centimetres clear of Wales’ Julie Crane. Third place went to Karen Beautle of Jamaica.Back on the track, sprinter Geraldine Pillay added a bronze medal in the 200 metres to the silver medal she won in the 100 metres.Running in lane eight, Pillay ran superbly to claim third behind the Jamaican duo of Sherone Simpson and Veronica Campbell in a time of 22.92 seconds.Shooting silversSouth Africa’s shooting team won two more medals, both of them silver.Esmari van Reenen was squeezed out of first place by India’s Anuia Jung in the women’s 50 metres rifle prone. She finished on 670 points to the 670.7 of Jung.Byron Swanton, whose sister Diane won gold in the women’s trap, finished second in the men’s double trap.India’s Olympic silver medalist Rajyavardhan Rathore successfully defended the title he won four years ago in Manchester, while William Chetcuti of Malta won bronze. Former Olympic champion Russell Mark of Australia had to settle for fourth.Chauke in flyweight finalSouth Africa is assured of at least two more medals, both of them in the boxing ring.Jackson Chauke reached the flyweight final when he beat Uganda’s Martin Mubiri on points on Thursday. He faces England’s Don Broadhurst, who eliminated Jitender Kumar of India, for the gold medal.Welterweight Bongani Mwelase, who won gold at the 2005 Commonwealth Boxing Championships in Glasgow, stopped Botswana’s Moabi Mothiba in the second round of their quarterfinal contest to reach the semi-finals. Both losing semi-finalists win bronze medals.last_img read more

Tributes for South Africa’s ‘Dusi King’

first_img18 June 2010The South African canoeing community has united to pay tribute to the “Dusi King”, Graeme Pope-Ellis, who passed away on Thursday after being involved in an accident on his farm outside Pietermaritzburg.Pope-Ellis, 62, won the three-day Hansa Powerade Dusi 15 times, and has won countless races in the veteran, master and grand master age groups since his dominance of the Dusi in the 1970s and ’80s. He raced the Dusi a record 46 times after making his debut in 1965.Despite his successes, he remained humble and his generosity of spirit saw him take countless youngsters under his wing, often hosting them at his home, and taking them on training and tripping sessions on the river to teach them the intricacies of the Dusi.Martin DreyerOne of those who learnt from the “Dusi King” was the man who has become known as “The Dusi Duke”, Martin Dreyer. His canoeing success was profoundly molded by Graeme Pope-Ellis. Dreyer had spent the past week with Pope-Ellis mountain-biking on the Wild Coast.“Graeme was everything I ever want to be, as an athlete, a devoted husband to Wendy and father to Lee, and just as a human being,” said Dreyer.“When I arrived on the scene in 1998, with serious plans to get into the top 10, no-one really wanted to help because I was a threat. But not Graeme. He took me into his home for months and showed me everything he knew about the race.”“I couldn’t believe it,” recalls Dreyer. “There I was, a kid, reading ‘Pope’s’ autobiography in total awe, and he was taking me into his home and teaching me everything he knew.”“I had a deal with Graeme, which sadly I am not going to be able to honour,” added Dreyer. “I promised that I would do the Dusi with him when he was 70. But the Dusi will always be about Graeme Pope-Ellis. For ever. There is no need to try and manufacture any other tribute to him,” Dreyer said.Ant StottAnt Stott was another Dusi champion who was shaped by Pope-Ellis from his days as a schoolboy at Maritzburg College.“I’m devastated,” said Stott. “He was one of the greatest role-models in my life. I loved his gentleness and humility.“He was a total icon in our lives, and taught us a huge amount,” Stott added. “He would pick us up from school, take us to the river, show us his ‘lines’ down the rapids, and for these kindnesses I will be eternally grateful.”“It’s going to be hard to imagine races in future without him there. He was just always there, at even the lesser canoe races. He filled a huge space and will leave a massive gap.”Andre HawardenAndre Hawarden was part of the gripping racing that shaped canoeing in the seventies. “These are sad times indeed,” he said. “Canoeing will never be the same again. But legends never die,” he added.“When I started canoeing in 1965, Graeme was there. In the 70s, when I was winning the singles, he was winning the doubles. He was always there. When I last paddled the Dusi in 2003, he was there. He was in almost every race I did,” said Hawarden.Shaun RubensteinCurrent Olympian and former winner of the Hansa Powerade Dusi junior title Shaun Rubenstein, who first met Pope-Ellis as a wide-eyed five-year-old, was another whose life the “Dusi King” helped shape.“I was the proudest guy in the world when I used to be taken to my judo competitions by the “Dusi King”, recalls Rubenstein. “It was when I decided to give the Dusi a shot at 15 that he really took me under his wing and taught me so much.“Graeme and his wife Wendy were like parents to me,” Rubenstein continued. “They opened their homes and their hearts to me. When I won the World Marathon Championships, the first person I phoned from France after my parents was Graeme Pope-Ellis.”“Graeme made me who I am today as a paddler. He taught me the work ethic I follow today, and, even though he wasn’t a sprinter he took such a keen, enthusiastic interest in my career.“I can still hear that croak in his voice when I phoned him to tell him that I had qualified for the Olympics.“Graeme taught me to get out of bed with a smile on my face, every day,” reckoned Rubenstein. “He had such passion for life and it rubbed off on everyone around him.”Tim CornishTim Cornish won four Dusi titles with Pope-Ellis, and was reeling in shock at the news of his death.“He was absolutely meticulous in his preparation,” said Cornish. “I only had to train and paddle with him. Tactics, local knowledge, equipment and preparation was all taken care of. He was amazing.”Pope-Ellis will always be remembered for an epic Dusi duel with Danny Biggs, and two classic encounters against the young upstart John Edmonds, which are still on record as the closest Dusi finishes in history.John Edmonds“I’ve known him since I was eight,” said a shattered John Edmonds. “I remember I was allowed a turn with the hard roller when he helped my brothers build their first boat- he had the neighbouring farm,” recalled Edmonds fondly.“I loved the needle Graeme was always able to bring to our paddling, even until recently – he was such a competitor! I loved the secrets he said he knew about the Dusi routes,” added Edmunds.“It’s really sad that we have lost him when he was just starting to relax. From having been totally self-made, he was now able to host out-of-province paddlers and share his wealth of canoeing experience.”Rick WhittonRick Whitton won the Grand Master title in the 2008 Hansa Powerade Dusi with Pope-Ellis in a new record time, and cherishes memories of “The Dusi King” going back to the days that he was learning the kayak trade with Gordon Rowe in Pinetown in the seventies. It was then that Pope-Ellis spent some time in the factory learning the trade.“He was the kind of guy that you just assumed would live forever,” said Whitton. “He was so positive about everything, whether it was his wife and family, his business, his sport or his friends.”“In all the years I knew Graeme, I never once saw him fail to make time for a stranger or a youngster and a novice paddler who wanted to chat to him or ask a question,” said Whitton.“He was a total inspiration to me. When you competed against him, he awoke his ability to dig deeper and try harder. You could be really shattered but he inspired you to dig deeper.”“He was a champion in everything he did, a legend,” said Whitton.Alexa ColeAlexa Cole got close to Pope-Ellis when training with Abbey Miedema for their spate of women’s K2 victories.“Graeme’s passing will leave a huge hole in the paddling community,” she said.SAinfo reporterWould you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

Ministry may take ‘India’ out of BCCI

first_imgIf in the near future the government withdraws the word ‘India’ from the Board of Control for Cricket in India ( BCCI), don’t be surprised.Yes, that’s possible as there are strong indications from the sports ministry, which is determined to ensure that the cashrich board adheres to the guidelines meant for all national sports federations (NSFs).And if the issue reaches a flashpoint, the BCCI would not be able to field a ‘national’ team. It could also mean that Mahendra Singh Dhoni & Co. would possibly no more represent their country. If the richest sports body of the country remains adamant, it could lead to a legal battle with the government.BCCI, at a special general body meeting on Saturday in Mumbai, decided not to reply to the ministry’s letter and decided that it would go for legal opinion if pressurised further.In its 78-year-old existence, the BCCI has probably never been dependent on the sports ministry.Even now it’s not – BCCI’s income in 2009- 10 alone was Rs 847 crore – but the ministry says the board can no longer snub it by remaining snooty and unanswerable to the government.In a letter to the board, the ministry points out that all NSFs have been declared as ” public authorities” and, therefore, the BCCI too has to comply with the guidelines.All federations have to reply by Wednesday.The ministry also points out that last year, too, the BCCI had not replied to a similar letter.”But this time we will go the full distance and if the cricket board doesn’t fall in line with the age and tenure guidelines, the government would invoke the National Emblem Act as the BCCI uses the word ‘ India’ in its name,” a source told M AIL T ODAY . ” The BCCI can use ‘India’ only till the time the government permits it, though it’s a different issue that successive governments have been lenient with it. If the BCCI doesn’t abide by its policies, made from time to time, the government would be compelled to invoke the National Emblem Act,” he said.advertisementThe ’emblem’ means any emblem, seal, flag, insignia coatof- arms, or pictorial representation specified in the ‘ schedule’, which further provides details of what all falls under its purview.When contacted, Injeti Srinivas, joint secretary in the sports ministry, said that it was mandatory for the BCCI to register itself as it receives government patronage in various forms, like police deployment during matches, entertainment tax concessions and waiver on customs duties for import of sports goods, and other benefits.”They may be having some apprehension with regard to registration. But, basically, it is necessary for them also,” Srinivas told MAIL T ODAY . “Any entity that says it is an NSF will have to have the acceptance of the ministry. It happens worldwide. They have to get the recognition to represent the country. You have to… legally… it is there everywhere in the world. It doesn’t interfere with their [BCCI’s] autonomy or anything. For legitimacy, it is necessary.”Asked what the ministry’s next move would be if BCCI declines to register itself, Srinivas said: ” That is a hypothetical question. But there has been a total change… a total shift… in the sports administration [ in India]. Earlier, the Indian Olympic Association and everyone else had declined, but the situation has now changed.” Specifically asked if the word ‘ India’ could be withdrawn from the BCCI and whether the corporate affairs ministry too could come into play since the BCCI enjoys exemption under its Competition Commission, Srinivas said: ” Everybody will come into the picture.” The BCCI has been ignoring the sports ministry on various issues over the years mainly on the pretext that it doesn’t take financial help from it. But Srinivas pointed out that the board does enjoy other privileges.”Funding is a separate matter. But they [BCCI] enjoy the privileges of an NSF in terms of tax and duty exemptions, [its team] representing the country and special dispensation even from the Competition Commission. Federations have the monopoly by their very nature,” he explained.”To have those privileges, they’ll have to have the recognition. Registration under a state act is sufficient to function as a national sports body. It’s a process.” Srinivas pointed out that several NSFs, which were opposed to the guidelines, are now adhering to them. ” A majority of the federations have already amended their constitution. I don’t think they [ BCCI] have said ‘ no’. Once they understand that it is a legal requirement they will abide by it. I am quite hopeful,” he said.advertisementlast_img read more

Here’s What We Think The Big 12 Divisions Would Look Like

first_imgThe Big 12 Conference's logo.Earlier today, the Big 12 announced that it had unanimously approved the re-institution of a conference championship game in 2017.The league also announced that it would likely split into a pair of five-team divisions, which drew a slew of outside criticism. What’s the point of divisions if doing round-robin? The Big 12 is clueless https://t.co/En2GE7PZ9D— Jason Brown (@JasonBrown96) June 3, 2016We decided to try and figure out how those divisions might look when they are formed. Here’s what we came up with:NorthOklahoma Oklahoma State Kansas Kansas State West VirginiaSouthTexas Texas Tech Baylor TCU Iowa StateLet’s take a look at how we arrived at these splits. First, Oklahoma and Texas will definitely be split up. Texas will likely want to be in a division with the other Texas schools, and it makes geographical sense. Meanwhile, Oklahoma and Oklahoma State fighting it out for North supremacy and a spot in the title game makes things interesting. The Kansas schools then get grouped in with the two Oklahoma programs. Iowa State makes zero sense in the South, but neither does Missouri in the SEC East. Additionally, we had to beef up the North a little bit, so we gave them West Virginia, a better program than the Cyclones. Do these divisions make sense, or should we have switched some things around? How would you have done them?last_img read more

Yamuna water recedes in Delhi its close to danger mark in Mathura

first_imgNEW DELHI: The water level in the Yamuna river continued to recede and was flowing below the ‘warning mark’ of 204.50 metres, an official said on Friday. Meanwhile, the water level in the Yamuna is inching towards the danger mark in Mathura, an official said on Friday. The Delhi government is monitoring the situation, the official said. According to the Flood Control Room, Yamuna was flowing at 204.28 metres at 1 pm on Friday.”The water level of Yamuna is expected to further recede as Haryana has not released water from Hathni Kund barrage in large quantity,” the official said. On Thursday, the river flowed below the “danger mark” of 205.33 metres. Also Read – After eight years, businessman arrested for kidnap & murderYamuna had reached the highest level of 206.60 metres on Wednesday morning and remained at that level for nearly seven hours. The river started receding from Wednesday afternoon and the water level was at 206.44 metres at 6 pm. Meanwhile, the situation is opposite in Mathura. “The Yamuna has crossed the warning level and it is moving towards the danger mark,”ADM Brajesh Kumar said. He said no casualty had been reported so far. After the discharge of 8.28 cusecs of water from the Tajjewala headworks on August 18 followed by the release of water from the Hathni Kund barrage in Haryana, the impact in Mathura was visible on Thursday, he said. Also Read – Two brothers held for snatchings Kumar said the Yamuna was flowing 56 cm below the danger mark at Prayag Ghat after crossing the warning level of 165.20 metres. The danger mark of the river at Prayag Ghat is 166 metres. Speaking on the arrangements made to tackle the situation, the officer said 31 flood posts, having doctors and veterinarians with other necessary arrangements, were either working or kept standby. He added that though 150 boats had been requisitioned, so far only six had been pressed into service. The officer said the PAC and the state disaster relief force had been stationed in the area where floods might have an adverse impact. Only Babugadhi village of Chhatta tehsil and Panigaon village of Mant tehsil have so far been affected by floods.last_img read more

Bayern Munich end pursuit of Callum HudsonOdoi

first_imgBayern Munich boss Niko Kovac has announced their business in this month’s transfer window is finished to bring an end to their pursuit of Callum Hudson-Odoi.The highly-rated teenage winger had been allegedly keen on joining fellow English youngsters Jandon Sancho and Reiss Nelson in the Bundesliga this month.It’s understood that Hudson-Odoi has become frustrated with his lack of regular opportunities at Chelsea with most of his appearances this season coming in cup games.Therefore, Bayern had been strongly linked with a move for the 18-year-old after three reported bids of around £35m were turned down by Chelsea.Sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic even confirmed their “great” interest in Hudson-Odoi and had hoped to bring him to the Allianz Arena this month.However, in light of Maurizio Sarri’s announcement on Tuesday that Hudson-Odoi will not be going anywhere, Kovac has now declared that Bayern will not be making any more moves before tonight’s transfer deadline.“We will no longer be active in the transfer market,” said Kovac, 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.“The teams do not want to let their players leave. We have a good and big squad.

DOI: 10.1126/science.aan5830AbstractCotton is a promising basis for wearable smart textiles. Current approaches that rely on fiber coatings suffer from function loss during wear. We present an approach that allows biological incorporation of exogenous molecules into cotton fibers to tailor the material’s functionality. In vitro model cultures of upland cotton (Gossypium hirsutum) are incubated with 6-carboxyfluorescein–glucose and dysprosium–1,4,7,10-tetraazacyclododecane-1,4,7,10-tetraacetic acid–glucose, where the glucose moiety acts as a carrier capable of traveling from the vascular connection to the outermost cell layer of the ovule epidermis, becoming incorporated into the cellulose fibers. This yields fibers with unnatural properties such as fluorescence or magnetism. Combining biological systems with the appropriate molecular design offers numerous possibilities to grow functional composite materials and implements a material-farming concept.

To demonstrate, the researchers used the same process to introduce a magnetic molecule instead of one with fluorescent properties, and created cotton cloth with magnetic properties. Magnetism in cloth, the group notes, could possibly be useful for storing data from electronic devices. They note that the process could also be used with other materials made from plants such as bamboo or flax.center_img As scientists continue to look for ways to create wearable electronic products, some unique ideas have emerged. One of them is adding material to the water used by a growing cotton plant to endow it with desirable properties. In this new effort, the researchers found that by combining two molecules, one that is naturally carried by plants to its cells and another that causes fluorescence, they could produce plant fibers with fluorescent properties. That fiber could then be used the same way it has for thousands of years, to make cloth. In this case, cloth that glows under a fluorescent light.In practice, the researchers grew cotton plants in water, then harvested their ovules, which is the part of the plant that makes the fibers. They cultured the ovules separately and eventually fed them water doctored with the desired molecules. After 20 days, the cotton was harvested and tested. The researchers found that approximately 5 percent of the molecules had made their way to the fibers—enough to make them glow green when exposed to fluorescent light.

Music beyond boundaries

first_imgThe Hungarian Information and Cultural Centre is organising an event Music Without Boundaries by Delhi’s biggest and one of the most well-known choirs, the Capital City Minstrels on May 6 at its premises. The choir will be conducted by Carolin Remy. The concert celebrates 20 years of their existence. This time around, the audience will get to enjoy arrangements. As the title of the concert suggests, the repertoire will include a diverse range of music, keeping true to CCM’s dedication to music which has traces of Carnatic music. The singers will be supported by the well known Nise Meruno on Piano and Suchet Malhotra, with an array of percussion sounds adding special flavour. CCM is comprised of people from all walks of life. Different languages are spoken by various choir members. But the language that unites us all is music. A long-time member of ours, Tapas Bhardwaj is a visually challenged student and has earned the confidence and stage presence with his many performances on stage with CCM. Originating in 1994, the choir recently had celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2014.  Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’Over these two decades CCM has performed in more than 200 concerts at prestigious venues around the capital. The choir has also established strong cultural links with the Hungarian Information and Cultural Centre, Alliance Francaise, the Austrian, Italian and Vatican Embassies and regularly performs for important events at these places. CCM’s repertoire spans a wide range; from the earliest choral music to the entire spectrum of western classical music, and opera to ballads, folk songs, Broadway musicals, rock, pop, jazz as well as Indian music arranged for choir performances. So mark the dates!last_img read more
