first_img GET THE BEST OF THE JAPAN TIMES OSAKA – WBC bantamweight champion Hozumi Hasegawa will face a challenge from top-ranked Italian Simone Maludrottu in the fifth defense of his belt in a world title doubleheader in January, organizers said Friday. Hasegawa takes on Maludrottu on Jan. 10, when fellow Japanese and fourth-ranked Nobuto Ikehara will take his first shot at a world crown against Ukrainian WBA bantamweight champion Wladimir Sidorenko in the doubleheader at Osaka Prefectural Gymnasium.

Ikehara, fighting out of the Osaka Teiken gym, is aiming to snap Sidorenko’s streak of title defenses at five matches. IN FIVE EASY PIECES WITH TAKE 5last_img read more

Ravens looking to invite more fans to training camp

first_imgThe Ravens haven’t held training camp at McDaniel College in five years, but the organization wants to bring the old Westminster feel to their Owings Mills facility in the coming summers.Team president Dick Cass told reporters at the league meetings in Phoenix that the Ravens are exploring ways to accommodate more fans to attend training camp practices. The possibilities include buying land adjacent to the team’s training facility for additional parking.After the Ravens accommodated a maximum of 500 fans at certain practices last summer, Cass told the team’s official website that they hope to bring 1,000 fans per day to camp workouts this summer and 3,000 spectators to individual practices by 2016, which would be more in line with the types of crowds they once saw in Westminster. The organization also plans to bring in more entertainment for fans at the training facility.The Ravens held training camp in Westminster from 1996 through 2010, but the 2011 camp was moved to the training facility in Owings Mills due to the uncertainty that accompanied the offseason lockout. Baltimore officially decided a year later to keep summer workouts at their multimillion-dollar facility moving forward to better prepare for the regular season, but the move eliminated arguably the most intimate setting for fans to watch players and interact with them.Cass said the Ravens will once again hold a training camp practice at M&T Bank Stadium this summer, which is currently slated for Aug. 3. It remains unclear whether they will hold another practice at the Naval Academy in Annapolis this summer.last_img read more

Wild Weekend on the Island for Selkirk College Saints

first_imgIf the Selkirk College Saints were looking for a key early-season bonding weekend full of memorable takeaways, they hit the mark on their latest trip to Vancouver Island.The Saints journeyed west for a pair of British Columbia Intercollegiate Hockey League (BCIHL) games and returned home with a 7-6 barnburner win over the University of Victoria Vikes on Friday night and a thrilling 5-4 overtime shootout victory against the Vancouver Island University Mariners on Saturday.“The on-ice wildness matched the off-ice wildness,” says Saints head coach Dave Hnatiuk. “The weekend included ferry delays on Friday night because of high winds and then a bus break down on Saturday on the way to the game. On the ice there were comebacks, a couple of blown leads and a wild 14-round shootout.”The Saints came into the weekend with a 2-2 season record and looking to build on a pair of home wins. When the team’s bus pulled into the ferry terminal on Friday afternoon, high winds on the coast put sailings on hold. The scheduled 7:30 p.m. start was moved to 8:15 p.m. as the Saints scrambled to get to the Ian Stewart Complex in Victoria.With their pre-game routine in tatters, the Saints managed to channel their adrenaline into a quick 2-0 lead when Dallas Goodwin and Garrett Hilton scored for Selkirk College. A free-wheeling first period continued with the Saints managing to build a 5-2 lead after 20 minutes with additional goals from Dylan Heppler, Blake Sidoni and Nolan Percival.An equally dramatic second period saw the Vikes score four unanswered goals in the first 15 minutes of the middle frame to forge a 6-5 lead. With four minutes left in the second, Saints captain Parker Wakaruk scored on the powerplay to send the teams into the dressing room tied at 6-6. Heppler notched his second goal of the game in a much tighter third period and Saints goaltender Tallon Kramer turned away all 10 Victoria shots to preserve the 7-6 win. “The mindset can’t change when disruptions happen before the game, the players need to get themselves ready to play mentally,” Hnatiuk says. “You have to get ready to go play, go out there and work, and win some hockey games. The guys responded awesome.”On Saturday, the Saints headed north on the Island Highway to Nanaimo to take on rival Vancouver Island University. On the way from the hotel to the Nanaimo Ice Centre, the bus broke down and they were stranded by the side of the road for an hour while the team waited for a city bus to take them to the rink. Like the night before, the players had very little time to prepare for the game.After a scoreless first period, the home side came bursting out of the dressing room and scored three goals in a four-minute span in a period that the Mariners would toss 18 shots on Saints starter Kramer. Edward Lindsey got the Saints on the board with six minutes left in the middle stanza and his marker was followed with goals by Jaiden LaPorte and Sidoni.In the third period, the Mariners scored early on the powerplay to gain the 4-3 advantage. In an intense period, Lindsey registered his second of the game with only 30 seconds remaining to tie the contest and send it into overtime. After a safe overtime, the teams went to an epic 14-player shootout that wasn’t solved until Wakaruk blasted a shot past VIU goaltender Jeremy Balyk to empty the Saints bench in celebration.“Parker has been playing great for us all year, it was fitting that he would finish it off and unleash his booming shot,” says Hnatiuk.Key to the Saints four-point weekend was a balanced scoring attack that saw eight different players find the twine, timely saves by Kramer and only four minor penalties.“It was a great job all around, both wins were definitely team wins,” says Hnatiuk. “There were some great individual performances at different times, but our success was because we played as a team and worked as a team.”With the heart-pumping weekend now in the books, the Saints will prepare to host the Trinity Western Spartans on November 8 and 9 at the Castlegar & District Recreation Centre. The Spartans are the defending BCIHL champions and off to another great start this season, but Hnatiuk is confident his crew will be up to the challenge.“I’m not going to put them up on a pedestal,” Hnatiuk says of the Spartans. “We will prepare for them over the coming week, we will focus on getting better and cleaning up a few aspects of our game. It doesn’t matter who you play, we will just keep on moving forward.”The games against Trinity Western University are the only home weekend contests in November for the Saints. They host Simon Fraser University on December 6 and 7.last_img read more

Lifetime award for NoFinish

first_img15 October 2002As the focal point of Ngqoko, a group of traditional bowsingers from the Eastern Cape, NoFinish Dywili took the traditional music of the abaThembu people from obscurity to local and international renown.At the 2002 Arts and Culture Trust Awards, Dywili, the founder of the Nggoko Women’s Cultural Group, was posthumously honoured for her contribution to traditional forms of South African music with a Lifetime Achievement Award.Dywili recognised that the musical traditions of her village Ngqoko – between Queenstown and Engcobo in the Eastern Cape – and surrounding areas were dying and, in a personal 40-year crusade, kept the music and the customs associated with it alive through a core group of singers, the Ngqoko Women’s Cultural Group.Considered a national treasure of South Africa, the performers of Ngqoko encompass the richness and depth of a centuries-old art form, including a range of gentle bow patterns, soft overtones, astonishing musical scale, rich harmonies and a unique, highly-developed form of overtone singing.The Ngqoko Women’s Cultural Group has performed extensively both locally and internationally, recording a CD – Le Chant des Femmes Xhosa – for the Musee d’Ethnographie de Geneve in 1995.Presenting the award to Dywili’s daughter Thulisa, Professor Andrew Tracey, director of the International Library of African Music, highlighted Dywili’s passion for sustaining traditional Xhosa music: “She was outstanding in her own way, but also representative of many, many other outstanding, unsung women who can be found in every small community in South Africa – people who have the courage and the power to live their life as they know it should be lived, and to influence others to do the same.”Tracey emphasised the significance of Ngqoko at a time that South Africans are rediscovering their artistic heritage. “They have made a tremendous impression. It’s not only their music, the polyphonic singing, the three types of bow they play, the umngqokolo overtone singing.“It is also their presence, their dignity, their gaiety and their seriousness, the sure knowledge they give to an audience that they are part of an ancient tradition which means something to them, and something of this meaning comes across to every audience.”The Ngqoko Women’s Cultural Group specialised, among other things, in the typical married woman’s style called umngqungqo, danced at the time of intonjane, girls’ isolation and initiation.According to Tracey, the Khoisan had a big influence on the western Xhosa people, and although it is now almost impossible to trace any relicts of original Khoisan culture in the Eastern Cape, “it’s still there to hear in song-dances like umngqungqo“.NoFinish’s music might have remained unknown forever, Tracey said in his presentation speech, if it had not been for a chance meeting in about 1979 between NoFinish and the Rev Dave Dargie, who was working on Africanising the music in the Catholic liturgy.Once Dargie heard NoFinish with her uhadi gourd bow, “he knew right away that he’d better learn something about the real traditional Xhosa music before going any further”, Tracey related. “So, late in her life, she was ‘discovered’, as they say, and her group began to be invited to perform, close to home at first.“But soon they were getting invitations much further afield, all over South Africa, then to Europe several times, and [in 2001] I took them to Reunion, that was NoFinish’s last trip.”NoFinish was the focal point of the music of the Ngqoko Women’s Cultural Group, “their gravitas, their isithunzi“, Tracey said.“In presenting this award to NoFinish’s daughter Thulisa for her mother, I would like to think this is also in recognition of all other women in South Africa who know their own mind, who know who they are, and have confidence in themselves and in their culture.”Source: Arts & Culture Trustlast_img read more

MH370 Report: No ‘significant contacts’ identified in first CSIRO hotspot area

first_img“The ship’s speed has been variable, suggesting that the AUV has not been using its side scan sonar continuously, since it is understood that requires a particular speed, around 3 knots,” Richard Cole said in a January 31 update.The move comes after Seabed Constructor, the high-tech ship employed to search for flight MH370,  swept the western side of arc containing two other points also identified in CSIRO drift studies as possibilities but thought to be less likely options than the first location.The vessel is accompanied by a support ship, the MV Maersk Mariner, which joined it from the West Australian port of Fremantle.Independent experts monitoring the operation via satellite said the Seabed Constructor had conducted three sweeps by January 31 using its fleet of Hugin autonomous underwater vehicles.They  believe the ship used eight AUVs in the first two sorties to the east of the arc and seven to search the smaller area to the west.The company behind the search, Ocean Infinity,  has a “no find, no fee” deal with the Malaysian government.This sees it paid $US20 million if the debris is found in the 5000 sq. km primary search area, $US30m in the 10,000 sq, km secondary zone and $US50m in the 10,000 sq, km tertiary area.The three zones make up a 25,000 sq.m area defined in the Australian Transport Safety Bureau’s final report as most likely to contain the debris after a  search of the original 120,000 sq km search zone failed to find itOI will get $US70m if it locates the wreckage in outside that 25,000 sq, km zone and a number of experts have suggested this is where it is.The University of Western Australia’s Professor Charitha Pattiaratchi said last year that its rift modeling put the location of MH370 “at Longitude 96.5° E Latitude 32.5° S with a 40km radius.”Some members of the Independent Group believe it may be even further north and a map on the Malaysian update identifies two “site extensions”, one of which ranges north of 29° S.MH370 searchThe map showing site extensions.

The Malaysian Government has confirmed the area identified by CSIRO scientists as the most likely site for the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 has been swept without identifying the wreckage.The MH370 response team issued a statement saying that as of January 28, the search had covered 4500 sq. kms to the east of the seventh arc defined by the final satellite handshake.This area contained the position at latitude 35.6° S and longitude 92.8° E described by the CSIRO as the most likely location of the aircraft.“No significant contacts identified to date,’’ the update said.However, an independent expert following the search by satellite said Wednesday the Seabed Constructor had moved back into the eastern search area and appeared to be rescanning one of the tracks previously covered by a Hugin autonomous underwater vehicle.MH370 search areaThe area searched by January 28.

first_imgTouch Football Australia’s Queensland Branch will embark on a whirlwind goodwill tour of Japan from the 22 – 28 August 2006.A mixed team, comprising State representatives across various age divisions who competed in the recent State of Origin series, was invited to participate in the Tour. The Japan Ministry of Foreign Affairs nominated the Japan Touch Football Union (JTFU) to bolster the relationship between Japan and Australia in the name of the “Australia Japan Year of Exchange” project.  The Japan Touch Football Union, who sent two Mixed teams to the Touch Football Australia Queensland Branch 2005 State Cup at Kawana, see this tour as an integral build-up to their preparation for the 2007 World Cup.  Touch Football Australia Queensland Branch stayed in contact with the JTFU after the State Cup and has been providing the developing Touch nation with resources and information to broaden their technical knowledge and practical applications of the game.Touch Football Australia Queensland Branch Member Services Officer, Kathy Sweeney will be the tour leader and has been working closely with the JTFU since March to ensure the tour has several mutual outcomes for both parties.“Building friendships and the development of the sport of Touch across the world.   Feeling that you can contribute to this is very rewarding and fulfilling. All our Queensland players are really excited about going and have been practicing their bowing… they are a hard bunch to teach etiquette to, but all are excited about embracing and learning about a new culture” Kathy said.Experienced Queensland coaches Tony O’Keefe and Mark Edwards will coach the Queensland team, and Level 6 referee and Touch Football Australia Queensland Branch Development Officer Glenn Richardson will also be touring.The Queensland touring party will provide valuable mentoring and education to the Japanese players and technical arms fraternity with scheduled competition, exhibition matches, coaching and game development sessions. The tour will include games against the Japanese National squads to assist in the finalisation of their World Cup teams and tournament games as well as several social and cultural engagements.Current Australian Open Men’s representative Phil Gyemore will lead the Queensland team and is excited about the prospect of touring Japan after traveling to the country previously for the 2003 FIT World Cup played in Kumagaya.“It is most definitely a different environment.  It’s great for people to get out of their comfort zone and experience how other people in the world live. We’ve just come off the State of Origin so we had a very comfortable home base from which to play, now we have to be prepared for a different competition, social and cultural environment.”The language barrier is obviously always an interesting aspect to overcome. Phil believes though that on the field will be common ground for both nations.“The game, the rules and signals – the language of Touch football we will both speak perfectly well I’d imagine.”Jokingly Phil said, “It’ll probably be good for Parksey (Luke Parker) and Rager (Dave Raper). The Country Club connection won’t get too far with questioning the Japanese referee’s decisions, so that will be good for the flow of the games.”The Japan Minister of Foreign Affairs and the JTFU have provided an International interpreter to accompany the team and Masahiro, a Japanese player, speaks English and will act as one of the Queenslander’s hosts.Phil is excited about playing with the array of players Queensland has assembled.“It will be great playing with new people – there are a lot of stars there across the age divisions and a good mix of personalities – it’ll be heaps of fun and a life experience the players will no doubt look back on with fondness in the future.” Queensland’s tour is precisely the sort of cultural game exchange experience that will assist the Japanese Touch football community to develop a better feel and “read” for the finer points and styles of playing the game.Japan has been a member of the Federation of International Touch (FIT) since November 1990 and has attended every World Cup since 1991. The Australian Touch community have been very willing contributors in the development in the game in the Asian region, particularly in Japan.Queensland’s tour of Japan in 2006 is another stepping stone in the development of the game on a global level and we look forward to hearing about the on and off field exploits of our intrepid touch ambassadors upon their return.It will also be interesting to hear if Parksey and Rager manage to get through the tour without time in the bin… stay tuned.Updates on the progress of the tour and a wrap up of the tour will be provided.The Queensland Touring party is:Jason Powell, Luke Parker, Matt Mc Donald, Shane Rigby, Sean Slinger, Graham White, Dave Raper, Phil Gyemore (Captain), Nicola Slade, Sherry Ey, Haylene Grogan, Terri Cronk, Lisa Miller, Tracy Williamson (Captain), Tony O’Keefe (Coach) Mark Edwards (Coach) Glenn Richardson (Referee) Kathy Sweeney (Tour Manager)Written by Karley Banks  Media Member Services Officerlast_img read more
