The City of Cape Town has announced its decision to open parks immediately. On Sunday July 12, President Cyril Ramaphosa announced that the country would remain under Alert Level 3 lockdown, but parks would open for physical exercise.Following the announcement, Mayor Dan Plato has requested that city officials reopen all City parks immediately.“Parks by their nature encourage social distancing and we are pleased that national government has finally changed its stance on this. Capetonians will now benefit from additional activities through the access to parks. This will assist in enabling daily exercise to increase mental and physical well-being during this challenging time,” said Mr Plato.The City’s Recreation & Parks is ready to open all parks within the metropole, including Khayelitsha Wetland Park, Nantes Park, Arderne Gardens, Company’s Gardens and Westridge Gardens.Mr Plato added, “I am very thankful for the city staff who have been hard at work during the lockdown to ensure that our parks are ready for our residents. Teams have been carrying out maintenance over the past two weeks to ensure safety and compliance. I am sure our residents will appreciate having these spaces to exercise and enjoy some fresh air.” Residents are encouraged to practice social distancing and wear their masks at all times when visiting parks.
Long-established legal internet service provider Lawyers Online has relaunched itself as a referral site for legal services. The company was formed in 1998 and generates revenue through providing hardware and internet connectivity to law firms.The company currently has 200 law firms as members and wants to establish a co-operative group marketing scheme based on a £2m TV advertising campaign. It will not charge solicitors for the website referral service.The company said it aims ‘to build regional panels of firms who will receive exclusive leads by areas of specialism’.Fourteen firms in the London area are piloting the scheme, receiving leads via a call centre. ‘All leads are vetted by our in-house team of lawyers before being forwarded to the firms,’ the company said.Chief executive Rosie Houghton (pictured) said that high street firms are seeking to develop their online brands in the face of increasing competition from alternative business structures such as Co-op Legal Services and Stobart’s One Legal.Houghton said when the company was originally set up lawyers were not internet savvy and speeds were too slow to provide them with a useful online business presence.‘Lawyers are taking on board that they need the internet full time,’ she said.Lawyers Online is in talks with private equity firm JPT for additional funding. She said the company was interested only in the UK market. ‘We are concentrating on branding; branding is the future for law firms.’

We haven’t achieve anything yet. We hope to finish the job on Wednesday,” he added. “A great team with their back to the wall is hard to beat.”Bolts head coach Norman Black, for his part, is still confident of their chances to force a do-or-die game despite a subpar performance from his wards during their Game 5 encounter.“It was not just about our bad start, but we played a bad game,” said Black. “The good thing about a seven-game series is it’s not over yet so they still have to win one more game.”“They only have three, so what we have to do is get back to the drawing board and try to figure out what went wrong and try to fix it and come back stronger on Wednesday,” he added.Black will once again rely on Best Import of the Conference awardee Allen Durham, as well as local players Jimmy Alapag, Bacolod City-native Reynel Hugnatan, Clifford Hodge, and Chris Newsome./PN

1. Gerakan tanganBiasanya gerak gerik seorang pencopet memang susah dikenali, namun ada beberapa gerakan yang bisa dilihat yakni tangan si pencopet. Tangan pencopet akan mencari sasaran dan menyelinap di antara himptan-himpitan tubuh orang-orang baik yang akan menjadi korban atau tidak.2. Lirikan mataPaling mudah sebenarnya adalah melihat lirikan mata. Pencopet tidak akan melirik pada satu tujuan bila belum menemukan targetnya. Namun, bila target sudah ditemukan maka, si copet akan terus melihat ke arah target. Contohnya bila melihat tas terbuka atau dompet yang sedikit menyembul keluar dari saku, penglihatan copet ini seperti mata elang dan bisa dengan mudah melihat targetnya dengan jelas.3. Posisi berdiriPencopet bila sudah mendapatkan target incarannnya, akan berdiri mendekati sang korban. Kemudian perlahan-lahan memepet korban dan langsung mengambil barang-barang korban seperti dompet ataupun ponsel.4. PenampilanSetiap copet pastinya tidak ingin diketahui dirinya copet. Kadang orang yang layaknya pekerja kantoran juga bisa menjadi seorang copet dan yang berpakaian kumal biasanya bukan. Namun, banyak yang berpersepsi seorang copet lebih ke berpakaian kumal. Bila Anda melihat yang kumal berarti copet benar-benar seperti bunglon. Selain itu tampang seroang copet juga tidak bisa dikenali dengan jelas. Karena mimik wajahnya sama dengan masyarakat biasanya yang sedang naik kendaraan umum.5. GenderJangan salah, seorang copet bukan hanya laki-laki, karena perempuann juga ada yang berprofesi sebagai copet.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Like this:Like Loading… Related The New Yorker Apa yang kerap di khawatirkan saat naik kendaraan umum?

OSAKA – The 10-second barrier has been unbreakable for Japanese sprinters in the 100 meters, Koji Ito coming the closest in 1998 when he ran it in 10 seconds flat.But Abdul Hakim Sani Brown, the 18-year-old half-Ghanaian prodigy, is giving Japan hope the wall may finally come down after completing the 100-200 double at the national athletics championships on Sunday, the first sprinter to accomplish the feat since Shingo Suetsugu in 2003. University of Florida, Abdul Hakim Sani Brown, Koji Ito, National Athletics Championships, Shota Iizuka Sani Brown rewrote his personal best in both the 100 and 200, his time of 10.05 in the 100 the sixth fastest ever by a Japanese. He did it while beating all four members of the nationally heralded Rio Olympic silver medal-winning 4×100 medley relay team — Ryota Yamagata, Shota Iizuka, Yoshihide Kiryu and Aska Cambridge.Sani Brown will make his second appearance at the world championships in London in August, when all eyes in Japan will be on him to see how much he has gained on the likes of Usain Bolt and Justin Gatlin.The nationals were a confirmation of Sani Brown’s touted potential, and have quickly shot him to Tokyo Olympic-bound stardom alongside fellow teenagers such as Takefusa Kubo in soccer and Rikako Ikee in swimming.While he missed Rio last year due to injury, Sani Brown broke Bolt’s record in the 100 and 200 at the 2015 world youth championships. The double there earned him the IAAF Rising Star award.None of the early success seems to be going to Sani Brown’s head, however. What was on his mind after being named the top male athlete of the nationals on Sunday evening was — supper.“I’ll crash for a few days and eat some good food and recover,” Sani Brown said with a big smile, salivating over his options in the Japanese carbs-capital that Osaka is known for being. “Then I’ll go back to the Netherlands and work hard again.“I’m very happy about being No. 1 in Japan, but I don’t want to settle for this. I want to do well at the world championships and other competitions I’ve got ahead of me.”He drew singular praise from his fellow competitors at the nationals who struggled to keep up with the 188-cm speedster.“He’s so big I thought I was competing at the world championships,” said Iizuka, who was the defending 200 champion at the nationals and will compete against Sani Brown in the discipline in London. “Not too many Japanese are bigger than me in athletics, but he’s massive.“I think what he’s doing is great. We went to Rio and achieved what we achieved, and it probably spurred Hakim on. So now we have to feed off him and try to do better.”Sani Brown has taken his training base abroad, and is set to enroll this fall at the University of Florida, one of the top sports colleges in the United States. He credits his improvement from last season to the coaching he has received overseas.“I think there’s a difference in the way coaches work in Japan and the way the top coaches in the world work,” Sani Brown said. “I’ve done a lot of weight training which has strengthened my core, and that’s stabilized my upper body when I run.”Japan’s 100 record-holder Ito, now the head of development at the Japan Association of Athletics Federations, said the wunderkind has a feel for sprinting that only the great ones have.“For someone his age, he knows how to take it up a notch with each round in a competition,” Ito said. “It’s a good sign because he’s been a junior champion, but to do it at the senior level, he will need to put up fast times comfortably.“Like Carl Lewis or Bolt, he has the ability to rein it in until 60 or 70 meters before letting it all go, and that is a quality not everyone has. The four who won a medal in Rio have talent, but so does Hakim, who beat them all.”Yet Sani Brown’s most admirable quality might be his temperament, the easy-going way he carries himself in a country where athletes tend to be overhyped at a young age, and can be forgotten quickly and ruthlessly without instant results.“It’s understandable for people to get nervous or worked up wanting to win, but I think the most important thing is to enjoy the race, have fun competing,” he said. “As long as you don’t forget that part, I don’t think you can become nervous.“It feels great to run fast, and the more competitive it gets, the better for me.” RELATED PHOTOS KEYWORDS IN FIVE EASY PIECES WITH TAKE 5 GET THE BEST OF THE JAPAN TIMES Abdul Hakim Sani Brown (center) ran personal bests in both the 100 and 200-meter sprints during the national athletics championships. | KYODO

“I am taking this very righteous step, I believe, to correct a wrong that occurred in our history and honor a truly legendary boxing athlete,” Trump told his guests. “Jack Johnson was not treated fairly and we have corrected that.”Johnson was convicted under a law that prohibited the transport of women over state lines, called the Mann Act. The law was sometimes employed by racist authorities to punish black men who had relationships with white women; it was later amended to apply only to the transport of women for purposes of prostitution or illegal sex acts.Johnson’s case has been derided for decades as shaky and motivated by racial animus toward the boxer, who defeated white opponents in the ring and enjoyed relationships with white women out of it. WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump granted a full, posthumous pardon for Jack Johnson, the first black heavyweight boxing champion, who was convicted of racially tinged federal morals charges more than a century ago.Trump signed a full posthumous pardon for Johnson while flanked by boxing royalty including Lennox Lewis, Deontay Wilder and Rocky himself, actor Sylvester Stallone.
