Rhodah Mlauzi was Banyana Banyana’s hero in the return, after scoring the only goal on the half-hour mark when she dribbled from the left to uncork a shot past Pauline Atieno to book a date with the winner between Nigeria and Equatorial Guinea.Starlets head coach, David Ouma hailed his charges for the performance and called on Football Kenya Federation to maintain the team.“Congratulations to the girls for reaching this level. We had a slow start in the game and the opponents utilized that to punish us. The girls need a pat at the back and people should trust in women football.“They should come in to support them especially in the league,” Ouma, who also doubles up as Sofapaka assistant coach said.Banyana head coach, Vera Pauw made two changes with Iceland-based Roxanne Barker and Busisiwe Ndimeni of Mamelodi Sundowns returning to the team after injury ruled them out of the first-leg.Starlets, who entered the match motivated after receiving boots from Machakos Governor, Dr. Alfred Mutua, started the game slowly, giving the visitors confidence to utilize their chances and score the important away goal.Ouma’s double substitution of Carol Achieng and Veronica Wafula for Cheris Avila and Tabaka Chacha in the second half changed the tempo but still none could find the back of the net.Banyana keeper denied Wendy Achieng after parrying her set-piece before clearing a Wafula left foot shot from close range.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Harambee Starlets in a previous trainings session.

Hart Union High School District officials were dismayed by the latest delay because they had hoped to begin construction next March and open the campus in fall 2010. “Now that is delayed significantly, and we don’t know what new planning or approvals will come at this point,” said Rob Gapper, Hart’s chief operations officer. Gapper said the district has been looking at alternate locations, including the Castaic-Mesa site being offered by The Newhall Land and Farming Company. “We have done a preliminary investigation, and the Department of Education believes it is a viable site,” Gapper said. The downside, he said, is that the district would once again have a high school tied to a proposed residential development whose lengthy approval process hasn’t started. The Sterling-Gateway site is a more recent option brought to the district by Castaic community members. The site is located in a predominantly industrial area, Gapper said, but it could be a possibility because of its central location. “We are still looking at Northlake as our school site,” Gapper said. “But we are also working on identifying the timelines involved with each of these alternative sites, and we are looking at the cost for the property, infrastructure and for all environmental issues that may come up.” Castaic students have recently been reassigned from West Ranch to Valencia High to alleviate overcrowding at the westside campus. “There will be 6,700 kids between Valencia and West Ranch High by the time my daughter is in high school,” said Mike Jackson, a father of two from Castaic. “They won’t be able to hold all of those students, and they don’t seem have a solution.” John Kunak, a Castaic Town Council member and president of the Castaic Union School District, said the Hart district has failed to move quickly enough. “The Hart district has obtained taxes and fees from the Castaic community which have been used to educate all of our students, but which should have also provided funds to build a high school in the community when appropriate,” he added. “Well, it is clearly appropriate now.” email@example.com (661) 257-5254 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

CASTAIC – The opening of a Castaic High School, originally scheduled for next month, has been delayed again, probably until 2011-12, although officials are unsure when the community will actually get its own campus. The latest delay came after discussion of the related 3,700-home Northlake project was removed from the Los Angeles County Planning Commission’s agenda. “We don’t know when the development will be back on the commission’s agenda,” said Paul Novak, planning deputy for Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich. Novak said there are unresolved issues involving traffic and environmental effects, as well as inconsistencies between an earlier approved plan and a revised plan.
Dele Alli is not interested in a record-breaking move away from Tottenham – because he wants to become a Spurs great, according to club legend Gary Mabbutt.Spurs and England star Alli was named last week as the world’s most valuable player under-21.A player of Alli’s quality and age is always in demand from big clubs, and he has recently been linked with mega-money moves to Real Madrid and Barcelona that could break the £100million barrier.But Spurs ambassador Mabbutt, who recently recovered from heart bypass surgery, says Alli would rather stay and make his name at White Hart Lane.“I presented him with the Young Player of the Year award last season, and he’s a very down to earth young chap,” said the Spurs legend.“You can see that he wants to make a name for himself at Tottenham.“There is a lot more to come from him because he is still young.”Some have criticised Alli’s disciplinary record, which includes a red card against Gent last season that means he will miss Tottenham’s first three Champions League games this term.But Mabbutt believes he will learn from the experience.“Unfortunately if you get embroiled in those situations,” added the former Tottenham captain.“You are going to come off second best and, with someone of Dele’s quality, that’s not going to be for him.“He’s young and learning all the time, and I think he appreciates that with things that have happened in the past, he wants to make sure they don’t happen again.” Dele Alli 1

McGhee, who has 20 caps for Scotland’s under 21 national side, has now signed for the Bairns on a one-year deal, with the option of a further year.The defender said: “I am delighted to be here. This is a really big club with good ambitions to get back into the top flight. It’s where it belongs and I really hope to be able to help it get there.”His move further bolsters a new-look Falkirk back line which will also feature former Partick and Kilmarnock defender Conrad Balatoni, who joined on a one-year deal earlier this week.Manager Peter Houston said: “Jordan is a player of real quality but also one with massive potential still to fulfil in the game. Hearts defender Jordan McGhee has joined Falkirk on an initial one-year deal for an undisclosed fee.The 21-year-old spent last season on loan at Middlesborough but failed to make a single first-team appearance.Boro decided against taking up the option of making McGhee’s move to Tyneside permanent after their relegation to the English Championship.The centre-half returned to Tynecastle this summer but is surplus to requirements following the summer addition of Scotland international Christophe Berra. “He is a player who is highly recommended by a number of people and at the age of just 21 will be a real asset to this club.“I have said all along that I was looking to strengthen with two more players and both Jordan and Conrad Balatoni who we signed yesterday were my key targets.”He added: “I am really pleased to have them both on board as I feel that we needed to add in these areas and both with all strength to our defensive options.“Both Conrad and Jordan trained with the team this morning and already you can see they are settling in well to the group.”
The Irish Nurses and Midwives Organisation (INMO) is ramping up pressure on the Government by discussing further strike dates to those already scheduled for February. Two days of 24-hour strike action are due to take place next Tuesday and Thursday, in a dispute over pay and staff shortages.Pickets took place on Wednesday at major medical centres including Letterkenny University Hospital, Scally Primary Care Centre in Letterkenny as well as Dungloe, Buncrana and Ballyshannon. Almost 40,000 nurses and midwives in Donegal and right across the country took part in the 24-hour strike.Maura Hickey, INMO Industrial Relations Officer in the North-West, told Donegal Daily the action will continue for the “long-haul” if the Government don’t come to the table with “meaningful talks”.The INMO executive is meeting to discuss adding further strike dates to those already scheduled for this month. | https://t.co/5x2ko7IiMv pic.twitter.com/kZ3TZDmeE4— RTÉ News (@rtenews) February 2, 2019The General Secretary INMO, Phil Ni Sheaghdha, said she expects that the union will announce further strike dates for nurses. The HSE has warned that it expects all out-patient, in-patient and day surgery to be cancelled ahead of Tuesday’s strike.It said it also expects Injury Units to be closed, and that routine community services and health centre nurse clinics to be cancelled.Public day centres and day hospitals for older people or people with disabilities will also close.INMO council set to discuss further strike days was last modified: February 2nd, 2019 by Shaun KeenanShare 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:HSELetterkenny University Hospitalmidwives strikenurse strikeScally Primary Care Centre
The U.S. Forest Service and the North Carolina Forest Service are warning the public of increasing fire danger in western North Carolina.Last weekend’s rainfall was not widespread and not enough to alleviate the dry conditions and persistent drought that has resulted from low rainfall in the past few months. Fuels in the forest will readily burn if ignited. Fire danger is predicted to remain high for the rest of October and into December.Both agencies would like to remind the public to use caution in any outdoor burning. Even when burn-bans are not in effect, conditions may not be advisable for outdoor fires. The public is discouraged from burning yard waste during periods of low humidity or high winds.For people who choose to burn debris, the N.C. Forest Service offers the following tips to protect property and prevent wildfires:* Always consider alternatives to burning.* Obtain a burning permit at an NCFS office or online athttp://ncforestservice.gov/burn_permits/burn_permits_main.htm* Check the weather – don’t burn on dry, windy days.* Know your local burning laws.* Be prepared with water, a shovel and phone.* Stay with your fire until it is completely out.Studies have shown that taking these and other measures can greatly reduce wildfires and the loss of property associated with them. Take time now to prepare your home against wildfires. Tips on protecting your property can be found at www.firewise.org.Additionally, campfires can be a source of wildfires. Follow these guidelines to help prevent wildfires:* Allow the wood to burn completely to ash, if possible* Pour lots of water on the fire, drown ALL embers, not just the red ones* Pour until hissing sound stops* Stir the campfire ashes and embers with a shovel* Scrape the sticks and logs to remove any embers* Stir and make sure everything is wet and they are cold to the touch* If you do not have water, use dirt. Mix enough dirt or sand with the embers.* Continue adding and stirring until all material is cool.* Do NOT bury the fire as the fire will continue to smolder and could catch roots on fire that will eventually get to the surface and start a wildfire.

Bahadur Singh Dhoni, in his first marathon, won the bronze medal in MumbaiEven as Mahendra Singh Dhoni walked into bat at MCG, another Dhoni many thousand miles away had secured a podium finish for himself in the Mumbai marathon.Bahadur Singh Dhoni comes from Kumaon, the same region in Uttarakhand where India’s superstar cricket captain originally hails from. He currently works in the Hyderabad army and represents the Two Naga Kumaon regiment.It was his first marathon of 42 kms and a bronze medal finish is not a bad start. But having been a seasoned campaigner, running smaller races, he understands what made the difference between a bronze and a gold. “I tried to follow the leaders but because of lack of experience, lost my way,” he says.Having made the most of opportunities to train with Olympian marathoner Ram Singh Yadav, he remains his running idol. But for a man named Dhoni who also comes from the same neck of the woods, there is also a larger inspiration somewhere. “I remember when I started running 10 years ago, he was new in international cricket. He has come a long way. I feel inspired by him,” he says.But he has never met Dhoni and hopes to see him some day. With Bahadur’s army connect if not for his sporting credentials alone, that meeting should not be too far away.

The Green Climate Fund (GCF) Board wrapped up its second meeting on Saturday with a major decision: selecting Songdo City in South Korea to host the Fund. The decision, which was adopted by consensus of the Board, was greeted with joy by the Koreans, who spared no effort to provide an offer of the highest quality to earn the confidence of the Board. The UNFCCC Conference of Parties will have to endorse this decision at its next meeting in Doha later this year to confirm the selection.The Host Country Will Play an Important RoleThe GCF is expected to be instrumental in distributing the funds that will help developing nations adapt to and mitigate climate change. As the host country, South Korea now has the opportunity to play an important role in ensuring that the GCF fulfills this responsibility.As a country that has in a short time transitioned from a recipient of overseas development assistance to a contributor, South Korea understands the perspectives of both developed and developing countries. It has firsthand experience of the challenges of lifting a nation out of poverty. South Korea is also now positioning itself as a global leader on climate change issues. The country is committed to pursuing “green growth” that ensures that economic growth and development go hand-in-hand with achieving environmental goals and combating climate change.As the host of the second GCF Board meeting, South Korea demonstrated its preparedness to host the GCF, displaying efficiency and strong organizational skills. The country’s commitment to supporting the GCF was evident in the warm and generous welcome given to all participants, including an address from President Lee Myung-Bak.Highs and Lows of the GCF’s Second MeetingIn addition to the important selection of host country, the Board had a number of other tasks to complete at its second meeting. It agreed on an ambitious work program for 2013, which includes tackling some of the main design issues that the Board will have to agree on in order to make the GCF operational. The structure and strategy the Fund will use to carry out its functions, or its “business model,” is a priority issue on the agenda for the first meeting next year. Determining how the GCF conduct its work – including how it will interact with the private sector and how countries will access funds – will be key to moving forward with operationalizing the Fund. Also on the agenda for the first meeting next year is modalities for readiness support, establishment of an independent secretariat, selection of the head, and figuring out resource mobilization, which is critical to ensuring that the Fund is not an “empty shell.”The outcome of the Board’s discussion of observer participation was less satisfactory. Despite wide recognition of the important role that civil society and private sector observers play in ensuring transparency and bringing independent experience and expertise to the discussions, the Board was unable to agree on arrangements to enable participation of the four active observers provided for in the Fund’s “governing instrument.”As a result, civil society and private sector contributions to Board decisions have remained ad-hoc and sub-optimal, a serious concern as the Board makes decisions on its business model and operational strategies. Without a formal process for enabling input from civil society and the private sector, it will be very difficult for these groups to engage constructively in the dialogue. Their lack of involvement also sets a poor precedent on transparency and participation. A number of suggestions for observer participation have been put forward by civil society and private sector groups, including ideas for a transparent self-selection process.What’s Next for the GCF?While the GCF Board reached an important milestone in selecting a host country, it has its work cut out in 2013. All eyes will be watching to see if it can live up to the bold ambitions it has set for itself and attract significant funding pledges in a timely manner so that it can begin disbursing funds.The Board will need to be focused and pro-active in pursuing its vision. It will also need to draw on the collective wisdom and creativity of its members, as well as external stakeholders in civil society and the private sector. These actions are needed in order to create a Fund that inspires the confidence of all its stakeholders and achieves its lofty goal of spurring low-carbon, climate-resilient development.

Perhaps it is David Blaine who Rangers require rather than Steven Gerrard. Presumably the former Liverpool captain, while contemplating whether to begin his managerial career at Ibrox, took in this latest Old Firm meeting from afar. The evidence pointed to a vast chasm between the Glasgow clubs. Celtic, who have now won seven titles in succession, humiliated their arch rival in even more brutal fashion than a fortnight ago, when four goals separated the teams in the Scottish Cup semi-final.Celtic revelled in proving again which club is currently Scotland’s dominant force. History says these scenarios are cyclical but there is no sign at all of Rangers clawing their way back to a position where they can go toe-to-toe with the champions. As job adverts go, this was an act of light-blue self-harm. Rangers increasingly confident of appointing Steven Gerrard as manager Share on LinkedIn Celtic Share via Email For the foreseeable future Rangers can only seek to establish themselves as Scotland’s second force. This season that runner-up position has developed into a tight battle between themselves, Aberdeen and Hibernian. Should Rangers – as is entirely conceivable – end the season fourth, they will miss out on £560,000 worth of prize money. In the current context that would be disastrous but it would be fitting for a club which has long since lost any sense of direction. Two players, including the club captain, remain suspended after a dressing-room row after that semi-final defeat.This Celtic display personified the success of the Brendan Rodgers era. The home side scrapped for loose balls, attacked with vigour and gave Rangers precious few sights of goal. It is no exaggeration to say that 5-0 flattered Rangers, a point emphasised by that being the scoreline with only 53 minutes played. Gerrard, or any other potential manager, will be entering a gunfight armed with a water pistol when it comes to attempting to topple Rodgers and his team.Graeme Murty, the Rangers interim manager, did not attend a post-match media conference. Before kick-off he admitted he had been unsettled by the speculation over Gerrard. This 90 minutes actually highlighted the scale of the risk Rangers will take if they appoint the Liverpool academy coach. Rangers surely need an experienced manager who can organise a team and immediately command respect. The sudden availability of Chris Coleman, dismissed by Sunderland, will inevitably be of interest to those at Ibrox, given that the Welshman was in the frame to manage Rangers after last year’s sacking of Pedro Caixinha.It would, nonetheless, be unfair to focus entirely on the woes of Rangers. Celtic were virtually guaranteed to retain the title even before a ball was kicked but they thoroughly relished confirmation in front of their greatest adversaries. Odsonne Édouard, on loan from Paris St Germain, was outstanding in attack. Callum McGregor and James Forrest supplied valuable creativity from midfield. Rodgers continues to make success in Scotland look so blissfully easy that those on the outside may not appreciate the scale of his work.Amid a brilliantly ferocious Celtic start Édouard opened the scoring by turning home a Kieran Tierney cross. The 20-year-old Frenchman doubled that lead after seizing on lazy defending by Russell Martin, striding forward and slamming home. Number three arrived before the interval, Forrest cutting infield before securing his first goal against Rangers.As Tom Rogic clipped the ball into an unguarded net and McGregor found the target from close range, Celtic’s thoughts turned to a record victory. They were denied that through a combination of Jak Alnwick’s saves plus wastefulness from Rogic, McGregor, and the substitute Leigh Griffiths.Rodgers believes this title carries with it greater merit than last year’s, despite Celtic’s unbeaten 2016-17 domestic season. That the manager and his squad retain such an appetite for success is one of many admirable facets of Celtic under the Irishman. They have proved a perfect fit for one another. Rangers are grasping desperately for something even remotely similar.
