City champs suffer PIAA heartbreak in overtime thriller to State College

first_imgby Malik VincentThe quest for a City League team to advance in the PIAA (Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association) football playoffs was unsuccessful, again, this year.State College, the winners of District VI, for the second year in a row defeated the City League champs, District VII, by knocking off USO (University Prep, Sci-Tech, and Obama), 33-32 on Nov 26 at Mansion Park Stadium in Altoona.“It was our goal to be able to represent the city well and finally get that win in States,” USO Coach Lou Berry said. “We weren’t quite able to get that accomplished, unfortunately.”The Panthers (11-2) came from behind to take a 3-point lead with 33 seconds left in the game.But State College’s kicker, Josh Clothiaux, was a thorn in their side as his offense set him up for a 25-yard game tying field goal in the closing seconds of regulation.When the game reached overtime, USO’s leader Jaylen Coleman, scored on a 1-yard run—for his second touchdown of the game. He finished with over 200 yards on the ground.“This season was a season to remember,” Coleman said. “I love my team.”Then State College running back Jack Haffner came back and put his Little Lions on top with a 6-yard score in the extra period. He played a big role in their victory last year to knock off last year’s champs Perry. In this game, like Coleman, he eclipsed the 200 yard mark.But it would be the foot of Clothiaux that would send his team to victory on the ensuing extra point.“There were so many opportunities for us to win this game,” Berry said. “We missed a chance for a turnover in that last drive and they were somehow able to get in position to score.”It took 26 seconds on a pass play and two Haffner rushes in that final drive in regulation for the Little Lions to drive 55 yards all the way to the USO 8 yard line.“There were some issues with the clock operator all game. I don’t see how it was possible for them to drive 55 yards in 26 seconds. But that’s just me.”The loss was USO’s first since going down to league foe Brashear in the City opener in September. They’d finish out their conference schedule and the playoffs after that, without even surrendering a single point.“We fell a little short in our journey,” Berry said. “But I’m so humbled and impressed by the success of these young men and how they fought for one another, as brothers, this year.”State College will take on the Quad-A champs of the WPIAL, North Allegheny next week in Altoona.Oliver (3-8) was the City’s Double-A representative in the PIAA’s and lost to Moniteau, 39-12, at Cupples Stadium on Nov. 25.(Follow our continuing coverage of and add your comments to our website at­pitts­burgh­ (Malik Vincent can be reached at [email protected] or on twitter @malikvincent.)last_img read more

Christmas comes early for Maida; big Murdoch weekend for Leafs

first_imgBy Bruce FuhrThe Nelson DailyLeaf coach Frank Maida woke up this week realizing Christmas had arrived early.The Nelson skipper found out via the junior hockey grapevine that former Leaf netminder Marcus Beasley was on the market once again having been released from the Prince George Spruce Kings of the B.C. Hockey League.Nelson held the Kootenay International Junior B Hockey League rights to Beasley after he was release from Prince George.Already satisfied with the goaltending duo of Andrew Walton and Patrick Defoe, Maida did the next best things — traded the junior B rights of Beasley for cash or future considerations to the Kamloops Storm.“We were really quite happy with our goalie situation,” Maida told The Nelson Daily on the eve of a heavy-dose of Murdoch Division competition.“It’s late in the season and we wanted to find Marcus a place to play. We made a call and Kamloops needed a goalie.”The deal is for cash or a player, should the Leafs want anyone the Storm is interested in moving to the Heritage City.“We’re always looking for another player heading down the stretch and into the playoffs,” Maida said.Maida may be more eager to deal should the Leafs falter this weekend.Nelson hosts league-leading Beaver Valley Nitehawks in the first of a home-and-home weekend series Friday at 7 p.m. in the NDCC Arena.Sandwiched in between the two Hawk games — game two is Sunday at 1 p.m. in Fruitvale — is a tilt Saturday in Castlegar against the Rebels.“I don’t feel this is a make a break weekend, but it is a big weekend to position ourselves where I feel we belong at the top of the division with Beaver Valley and Castlegar,” Maida explained.After suffering through the past six weeks of the season plagued by injuries, the Leafs have only two players on the self heading into the weekend — defencemen Tyler Parfeniuk and Blake Arcuri.Maida said Parfeniuk, the Leaf captain, would be held out of the lineup until the New Year’s Eve game against Spokane Braves.The word on Arcuri is less than promising as the Nelson native continues to rehab a hand injury.Nelson enters the three-game set trailing Beaver Valley by 10 points and Castlegar by five. The Hawks have played on less game than the Leaf while Nelson has a game in hand on the Rebels.The Leafs hold the lead in the season series against the Rebels 2-1 but trail the Hawks 3-1.Two of the games Nelson lost to Beaver Valley the Leafs held a lead only to see the Hawks charge back and take the [email protected]last_img read more

Highlights of 26 years of WEF on Africa

first_imgThe World Economic Forum (WEF) has been held for over 40 years, with Africa’s involvement and its interests at the heart of a dedicated annual continental forum since 1990. Here are some of the highlights from those 26 years in preparation for the forthcoming WEF on Africa to be held in Rwanda in May 2016.1990 and 1991WEF’s first Africa meeting took place in Geneva, Switzerland in 1990, featuring participants from business, government and civil society, including many burgeoning economy policymakers and business leaders from South Africa.The priority was to gain international support for South Africa’s future, as a united front featuring both Thabo Mbeki, chief economic policy maker for the African National Congress (ANC), and the National Party government’s finance minister Barend du Plessis. They took the findings of the forum on a roadshow through Africa and major international financial centres to drum up support for a smooth economic transition to a democratic South Africa.The following year, the forum held again in Geneva, took a more pointed focus on the rest of Southern Africa, with the theme “Opportunities for Growth and Development in a Southern Africa in Transition”.1992Then South African President FW de Klerk, Nelson Mandela and Chief Mangosuthu Buthelezi, the three primary players in political and economic negotiations in South Africa, presented a united front at the 1992 WEF Annual Meeting in Davos, Switzerland. Mandela chose the occasion to make his first speech on South Africa’s economic future under the ANC and credited the forum with inspiring his reversal of ANC policy on nationalisation of the mining industry.1993This was the first year WEF on Africa was held in Cape Town. It was also the first time many of the world’s leaders, particularly African heads of state, visited South Africa. The country remained a regular host over the next 20 years.The 1993 event saw the creation of the ten-year Global Leaders of Tomorrow initiative that heralded the emergence of new economic players out of Africa, including some of the most prominent and powerful players in African affairs today such as Cyril Ramaphosa, Patrice Motsepe and Ugandan-born Winnie Byanyima, executive director of Oxfam.1998The 1998 event, held in Windhoek, Nambia, saw the launch of the first Africa Competitiveness Report, one of the world’s most vital economic barometers.Historic video: Nelson Mandela speaks at World Economic Forum in Davos, 1999. #Davos #WEF14SA— MediaClubSouthAfrica (@MediaClubSA) January 20, 20142000WEF in Durban, hosted by then-President Mbeki, saw the emergence of his African Renaissance concept that focused on regional integration for the continent.2001The rise of social entrepreneurs, and the founding of WEF’s Schwab Foundation for Social Entrepreneurship were some of the highlights from 2001. The Schwab Foundation brought acclaimed Africa-based social enterprises to international attention.2002Almost 150 global and regional companies doing business with Africa endorsed the New Partnership for Africa’s Development (Nepad).2005The WE Forum of Young Global Leaders was launched, including 16 up-and- coming African economic players, some of whom were integral to the success of the 2005 WEF Africa summit.2008Under the theme, “Capitalising on Opportunity”, the 18th WEF on Africa focused on raising the quality of leadership and education to capitalise on the growing opportunities available because of the continent’s economic growth and significant decrease in conflict.2010With the largest gathering of African heads of state and over 1 000 global economic players from 85 territories, WEF on Africa celebrated its 20th Forum in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, under the theme “Rethinking Africa’s Growth Strategy”. It re- evaluated global changes, such as the 2008 economic downturn, and its effects on African economies.2011The Grow Africa initiative, co-founded by the African Union Commission, Nepad and the WEF, was the hallmark of the 2011 Africa event, held in Cape Town. It focused on an African-owned, country-led, market-based and an inclusive approach to accelerating investment in sustainable growth with an emphasis on agriculture.2015The 25th World Economic Forum on Africa was held in Cape Town with the theme “Then and Now: Reimagining Africa’s Future”.With over 1 250 participants from business, politics, civil society, academia and the media, the forum was the largest WEF event ever held in Africa due to an increased number of female participants and young, economic minds from the continent.The milestone was seen as an indication of the unprecedented levels of commitment by global private-public economies to achieving Africa’s transformation. A continuing investment of over $10-billion (about R151-billion) in the Grow Africa initiative saw the creation of almost 60 000 agriculture jobs in 12 countries.Over 8-million smallholder farmers received assistance from the programme. The WEF Africa Strategic Infrastructure Initiative has also helped accelerate 23 cornerstone projects across the continent valued at $9.7 billion (about R145-billion).Source: World Economic Forumlast_img read more

City of Dawson Creek and NEAT asking residents to improve recycling

first_imgDAWSON CREEK, B.C. – The City together with the Northern Environmental Action Team want to help improve residents understanding of proper recycling cart contents with curbside cart audits starting the week of November 12.Since the curbside program started in September, residents have been doing a great job,  yet there has been an increase in contaminated materials left in the carts. Repeated contamination has shown a need for the new Recycle it Right program, to help residents understand and know proper sorting practices.It is essential to understand that blue bin contents are delivered to DC Recycling, these items are sorted and then baled for resale. Contaminants in your cart such as food waste, cat litter, garbage and construction materials can turn your recycling to garbage. This reduces the resale value of recyclable materials which increases processing costs and poses unsafe working conditions to staff. NEAT representatives will audit curbside bins by looking for possible contaminants, and then leaving information on correct sorting and acceptable recyclable materials. If a cart is highly contaminated, NEAT will leave the bin and ask the resident to re-sort their waste.For more information on how to Recycle it Right;Printable guide (also available as a downloadable PDF online) out the Waste Wizard at the Dawson Creek City appFor more information on the program, contact the City of Dawson Creek at 250-784-3600 or [email protected]last_img read more

Amending Indian Forest Act

first_imgThe Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change (MoEF&CC) has finalised the first draft of the comprehensive amendments to the Indian Forest Act, 1927 (IFA). The 123-page draft provides definitions to important terms that were missing from the law. The draft has been prepared based on the inputs of a core committee constituted by the ministry. On March 7, Inspector General of Forests (Forest Policy) Noyal Thomas sent a letter to all states seeking their comments. Each state has to conduct consultations with all its stakeholders, including non-profits and civil society organisations, and send the compiled feedback to the ministry by June 7. Also Read – A special kind of bondThe amendment defines community as “a group of persons specified on the basis of government records living in a specific locality and in joint possession and enjoyment of common property resources, without regard to race, religion, caste, language and culture”. Forest is defined to include “any government or private or institutional land recorded or notified as forest/forest land in any government record and the lands managed by government/community as forest and mangroves, and also any land which the central or state government may by notification declare to be forest for the purpose of this Act.” Also Read – Insider threat managementWhile the preamble of IFA, 1927, said the Act was focused on laws related to transport of forest produce and the tax on it, the amendment has increased the focus to “conservation, enrichment and sustainable management of forest resources and matters connected therewith to safeguard ecological stability to ensure provision of ecosystem services in perpetuity and to address the concerns related to climate change and international commitments”. The amendments specifically deal with the Forest Rights Act, 2006 (FRA). The amendments say if the state government, after consultation with the central government, feels that the rights under FRA will hamper conservation efforts, then the state “may commute such rights by paying such persons a sum of money in lieu thereof, or grant of land, or in such other manner as it thinks fit, to maintain the social organisation of the forest-dwelling communities or alternatively set out some other forest tract of sufficient extent, and in a locality reasonably convenient, for the purpose of such forest dwellers”. The amendment also introduces a new category of forests — production forest. These will be forests with specific objectives for production of timber, pulp, pulpwood, firewood, non-timber forest produce, medicinal plants or any forest species to increase production in the country for a specified period.(The views are strictly personal)last_img read more
