Hunter Stapp’s show-stopping triple saves Eagles in game one

first_imgARCATA >> Hunter Stapp was having a rough go in left field.It seemed as though the visiting Shasta Sun Devils had found a soft link in the Humboldt Eagles shortstop, twice stealing second base off an error before taking the lead late in the game.But trailing 4-3 with two outs, and Kokko Figueiredo and Jared Crassweller on second and first, Stapp cracked a first-pitch fastball far out to the back fence just right of center field. No fielder was there, but when one turned to make the throw, the …last_img read more

Upington to export wine to Malaysia

first_img21 June 2004An Upington, Northern Cape wine company, Oranjerivier Wine Cellars, on Thursday signed an import and export agreement with the Malaysian Eswira Resources company to export 150 000 litres of wine to Malaysia.The company is one of the biggest wine cellars in South Africa, with a record harvest of 184 361 tons for 2004.“This is a boost for the region and its people and the South African economy. This is an example of how to market South Africa in the future,” said chief executive Herman Cruywagen, adding that the agreement will lead to tourism opportunities between the two countries.Zainul Hawani Ahmad of the Malaysian High Commission said the trade and investment partnership between the two countries was the cornerstone of their bilateral relationship with South Africa.“South Africa is our most important trade and investment partner, and I hope this agreement will afford a golden opportunity for Malaysians to further develop bilateral networking directly with the Northern Cape,” she said.Northern Cape MEC for Economic Affairs and Tourism, Pakes Dikgetsi said the agreement entitled Upington farmers to act as ambassadors of the province.“This deal will broaden the horizons of our farmers to access the international market,” he said.“It will also develop the economic empowerment of the marginalised section of the Northern Cape,” he added.Source: BuaNewslast_img read more

Nobel Square for SA’s laureates

first_img5 August 2005Renowned Venda artist Noria Mabasa gets inspiration for her work through dreams.The 70-year-old from Limpopo made the trek to Cape Town as one of the artists chosen to work on the Western Cape’s Nobel Square project.Work on the site is set to start in early August, with the completed project to be unveiled on 16 December, when South Africa celebrates Reconciliation Day.Located at the popular V&A Waterfront, Nobel Square will honour South Africa’s four Nobel Peace laureates: the late Chief Albert Luthuli, Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu, and former presidents Nelson Mandela and FW de Klerk.The provincial government announced the names of the two artists chosen to work on the project at a briefing held near the Square on Tuesday.Cape Town artist Claudette Schreuders has been selected to join Mabasa on the project. Schreuders will produce bronze sculptures.Mabasa’s work, referred to as the “fifth element”, will reflect the contribution of women and children to peace and democracy in the country. Her work, a carving, is described as having “a quiet dignity”.Speaking through an interpreter, grey-haired Mabasa expressed joy at being selected to work on the project. “The inspiration for my work comes to me in my dreams,” she said. “My father came to me and asked, ‘Why don’t you do this?’.”Western Cape Premier Ebrahim Rasool said the project was part of the government’s vision to make the province “a home for all”.Describing the laureates as “architects of freedom”, he said three of them had spent considerable time in the province, which included jail time in the case of Mandela.“The Waterfront has a confluence of people from all over. They can share in our rich history and the contribution the country made to the world in terms of peace and democracy”, Rasool said.Derick van der Merwe, CEO of the V&A Waterfront Company, said 22 million visitors would have access to the project.The five sculptures will be cast in bronze, with the laureates being a bit larger than life-size. Selected quotations from them will be engraved at the front.Mandela, speaking at the original launch of the project in December 2003, described the Nobel Square as a gesture celebrating and promoting reconciliation. “We need to celebrate ourselves and our achievement as often as we can”, said Mandela, who shared the Nobel Peace Prize with FW de Klerk in 1993.Tutu, the 1984 recipient, said that the real heroes of South Africa were the so-called ordinary people. “What happens here is not a tribute to the four of us, but to the people of South Africa.”Also present at the launch was Albertina Luthuli, the daughter of the country’s first Nobel laureate, the late Chief Albert Luthuli. Luthuli was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1960, but due to the situation in the country he could only travel to Norway the following year to receive it.“How he would have loved to have lived to vote and witness the birth of the new South Africa in 1994”, Luthuli said.De Klerk, like his fellow laureates, said credit should go to those they represented. “May this monument remind us to be aware that the new South Africa has given us something precious.”The project has the blessing of the Nobel Institute in Norway.The Nobel Prize, established in 1901 by Alfred Nobel, is awarded annually and recognises excellence and contributions in the five categories of peace, literature, physics, chemistry and medicine.SouthAfrica.info reporter and BuaNews Want to use this article in your publication or on your website?See: Using SAinfo materiallast_img read more

Ohio AgrAbility at FSR

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Getting older or injured generally won’t stop a farmer from working.But work does not have to be painful. Changes can be made to a tractor or a combine, such as adding a lift to get aboard them more easily or adding a camera to keep a farmer from having to turn his or her head to see behind.Injured or aging farmers can find the technology they need to continue to work through Ohio State University Extension’s Ohio AgrAbility program. The program offers free on-site assessments for people with a disability, to help determine what assistive technology might enable them to continue to work. Ohio AgrAbility will offer three daily workshops at FSR to discuss what’s available for farmers who are injured or struggling with a physical disability and don’t want to give up farming.Two of the workshops Ohio AgrAbility will offer are on modifications to farm equipment, and another workshop is for professionals who work with individuals with disabilities. All workshops will take place under the Ohio AgrAbility tent on Land Avenue between Market and Kottman streets. The daily workshops for those who work with individuals with disabilities, which will be at 1:30 p.m., will provide an overview of what Ohio AgrAbility offers.The farm modifications workshops, which will be at 10 a.m. and 11 a.m. daily, will address what changes can be made to farm equipment to allow farmers to use equipment effectively without causing undue strain or additional injuries.Laura Akgerman, disability services coordinator for the AgrAbility program, will also present “Gardening and Farming with Arthritis — It Doesn’t Have to Hurt” at the Small Farm Center Sept. 20 at 10:30 a.m., and “Gardening with Arthritis” at the Utzinger Garden Sept. 19 and 21 at 10 a.m.Under the Ohio AgrAbility tent, people can see motorized doors for a barn, a motorized chair specially made to ride through rough terrain and a modified lawn mower that has shock absorbers to prevent a bumpy ride.“People might think ‘I don’t have a disability. I don’t need to know this.’ But we all get older,” said Akgerman.The assistive technology that will be discussed could be helpful to anyone, even those without a disability, Akgerman said. All farmers might benefit from having hand rails on a tractor or combine or a new seat with a suspension system that offers a smoother ride, she said.“If you could avoid an injury or chronic condition that aggravates your back or shoulders, causes you pain, or limits your productivity, why wouldn’t you?” Akgerman asked.One of the aims of the AgrAbility program is helping injured farmers keep from getting secondary injuries. For example, a farmer who struggles with arthritis or hip pain might find it challenging to climb up into the tractor, and in attempting to do so, could fall and possibly break a rib or another bone, said Charlie Landis, Ohio AgrAbility’s rural rehabilitation coordinator.“Farming is one of the more dangerous occupations in the country due to the amount of equipment on the farm and because farmers are working with animals and machinery with a lot of moving parts,” Landis said.An increasing number of farmers are aging, and as farmers get older, the odds of them injuring themselves increase, Landis pointed out.“People have to realize that they’re just not as strong or as quick as they used to be, but there are ways they can keep farming despite their injury, illness or disability,” he said.Ohio AgrAbility is a program provided through OSU Extension in partnership with Easter Seals Greater Cincinnati.last_img read more

WOMENS FINALS SUMMARY

first_imgHere is a report on all Womens Championship/Shield/Plate matches throughout the quarter finals, semi finals, play-offs and grand finals. This report will be updated as the matches progress. WOMENS CHAMPIONSHIP DIVISIONS (1st-8th place): Quarter finals: The Womens Championship finals kicked off with QSST showing why they’re ranked number one, an impressive 12-1 victory ending the hopes of TouchWest. NSWCHS showed they’re contenders but may struggle against the QSST side with a hard fought 4-2 win over the Brisbane Cobras, a team QSST beat 12-2 in the pool matches. SQBD piled on the scores in the second half to end the interstate challenge and stop the ACT from going on any further, showing they may just be title contenders. In the closest match of the Womens Championship quarter finals CQ held of the NSWCCC 3-2 with a miracle score in the corner giving them the win. QSST will now face CQ in their semi final, while SQBD will meet NSWCHS. Semi finals: Both NSWCHS and QSST survived scares in their respective semi finals. CQ surprised QSST to be constantly with them throughout the match and QSST looked a little tentative in their toughest match of the tournament so far. NSWCHS led 4-2 at half time but were unable to score from then on, sneaking through to the grand final with a 4-3 win. Play-offs: The ACT came from behind at half time to take the 7th position after scoring three touchdowns in the second half for a 4-3 win over a TouchWest side who have had a great tournament. The Brisbane Cobras secured 5th position with a 9-6 win over NSWCCC. SQBD staked their claim as the strongest non-schools side in 2004, winning the play-off for third against CQ 4-2. Grand finals: The match up between QSST and NSWCHS in the Womens grand final was highly anticipated. With NSWCHS taking the 2003 title, Queensland were out to claim it back and opened the scoring with Emily Hopkin’s great step allowing Gemma Etheridge to cross and score. An intercept from NSW’s Tegan Considine brought the crowd to their feet, which then lifted even more as Queensland’s Teneille Shaw chased 25 metres to touch Considine. With neither team able to score for the remaining time in the first half, it was Nicole McHugh who brought NSW back to even with a touchdown to open the second half. This was as close to winning as NSW would get though, with Queensland’s captain Courtney Hipperson scoring to give them a 2-1 lead. Belinda Hammett dived across the line for a 3-1 advantage to Queensland before the NSW side could bring it back to 3-2 with nine minutes still to play. NSW looked as though they were still in with a chance as the Queensland girls failed to make the most of their opportunities and extend their lead. When Delwyn Tupuhi and Hipperson both added to the Queensland tally, a 5-2 lead was too much for the NSW girls. With five minutes to go the NSW side also lost experienced Australian representative Kirstie Jenkins to an injury and the game was all but over. For Queensland coach Peter Bell, the win was a reward for how hard his players have worked. “They’ve put in a lot of training for this and they’re a great group of girls,” Bell said. Captain Courtney Hipperson agreed. “It feels awesome, we’ve had great teamwork and really bonded as a team, we knew we were good enough to win this and we came here to do that,” Hipperson said. Placings: 1. QSST 2. NSWCHS 3. SQBD 4. CQ 5. Cobras 6. NSWCCC 7. ACT 8. TouchWest WOMENS SHIELD DIVISIONS (9th- 14th place): Quarter finals: Both of the Womens Shield Quarter final matches were decided by drop-offs with NSWCIS continuing their most successful Championships ever, winning 5-4 over NQ. The Mets also won a close 4-3 encounter over fellow Sydney side the Scorpions. Semi finals: The Southern Suns ended the dream run of NSWCIS in their semi final, a 5-4 heartbreaker denying the NSWCIS girls a place in the grand final. While no doubt disappointed, they can be proud of being the highest achieving NSWCIS Womens team ever. SunCoast also won their way through to the Shield grand final with a comfortable 7-3 win over the Sydney Mets. Play-offs: In the Womens Shield play-off for 13th position, the Sydney Scorpions and NQ were deadlocked 1-1 at half time and a single touchdown in the second half gave the Scorpions a 2-1 win. NSWCIS also finished on a high, taking 11th place with a 4-3 win over the Mets. Grand finals: SunCoast won the Womens Shield title with a tight 4-3 win over the Suns. The match was full of diving touches and great runs. Placings: 9. SunCoast 10. Suns 11. NSWCIS 12. Mets 13. Scorpions 14.

NT made their way through to the Womens Plate semi finals with a controversial win over SA, a scoring dispute was finally sorted out with the promise of video footage if the referees needed it; the final result 6-5 to the NT girls. Semi finals: SWQ and the Hunter-Western Hornets progressed to the grand final for the Womens Plate division, after wins over the NT and Sydney Rebels respectively. SWQ defeated NT 6-1 and the Hornets had a comfortable 8-2 win over an injury-hit Rebels. Play-offs: SA denied Tasmania their first win of the tournament and recorded their own first win in the play-off for 19/20 after a 3-2 win in a drop-off. Ultimately, a positive end for both sides with a tough game to finish. The Sydney Rebels finished on a high, winning the 17/18 play-off 6-5 against the NT in a drop-off. Grand finals: The Hornets, struggling with injuries, had a comfortable 7-4 win in the Womens Plate final over SWQ. Placings: 15. Hornets 16. SWQ 17. Rebels 18. NT 19. South Australia 20.
