Gleneagles team eye Curragh

first_img “He travelled well (in the Qipco 2000 Guineas at Newmarket) and he has the ability to quicken, that’s what he showed us last year,” O’Brien told At The Races. “He did what we hoped. He had been working well at home so obviously we were hoping he’d do that. “He’s very much like Giant’s Causeway, so he could get a mile and a quarter, but he looks to be a miler really. “What you want in a good miler is the ability to travel and then quicken, and that is what he can do. “I think the Irish Guineas will be next but we’ll have to see what the ground is like and the boys will talk about that. It looks the obvious race, though.” Gleneagles is likely to be next seen in the Tattersalls Irish 2,000 Guineas at the Curragh on May 23. The impressive Classic winner holds entries in the Dante at York and in the English and Irish Derbys, but he is unlikely to be asked to race over further for some time. Trainer Aidan O’Brien feels he could stay a mile and a quarter, but his electric turn of foot and ability to travel on the bridle mark him out as a special miler. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Rhiza Babuyile: supporting development

first_imgRhiza Babuyile imparts marketable skills and entrepreneurship know-how to people living in some of Johannesburg’s toughest environments. (Image: Rhiza Babuyile, via Facebook)“Our vision is to eradicate extreme poverty in South Africa’s township communities by giving historically disadvantaged individuals the tools to become completely self-sustaining” Rhiza Babuyile mission statement.By giving people the skills and tools necessary for them to take their wellbeing into their own hands, Rhiza Babuyile hopes to make a lasting and meaningful difference in the lives of those in underprivileged communities.“If we keep on helping people without giving them the tools to, in the future, help themselves, then we are not sustainable,” Rhiza Babuyile founder Alef Muelenburg told CCTV Africa. “So the business hub is there for people to create an income for themselves so that at the end of the day we are not needed anymore.”Watch the work of Rhiza Babuyile:RHIZA DRIVING ENTREPRENEURSHIPRhiza Babuyile has community development projects established in Orange Farm and Diepsloot, two of South Africa’s youngest and fastest growing townships.Unemployment is commonplace in both and this is one of the many reasons why the organisation has put such a huge focus on entrepreneurship and skills development, in the hopes of creating a sustainable solution to poverty by getting people actively involved in their own development.Perhaps the most important part of its involvement is its enterprise development hubs, which offer training in the fields of entrepreneurship, business administration and other factors that go into starting and successfully running a small-scale business.Commenting on the aim of the business hub, Muelenburg says: “It’s about promoting entrepreneurship in the township because there’s so much talent in the township and, through that talent, we can ensure sustainability and a long-term good future for South Africa.”Diepsloot entrepreneur Khabelo Tau says he managed to get his business off the ground with the help of the Rhiza Babuyile Enterprise Development programme. “I came up with a business plan, and then it went through,” Tau explains. “They got me a tent and 50 chairs for start-up.“So (from now on) it’s really from my side that I have to push up and grow the business.”Rhiza Babuyile’s clinics, while catering to a wide range of illnesses and injuries, dedicate most of their resources to mother and child care, dental care, TB and HIV/Aids. (Image: Rhiza Babuyile, via Facebook)OTHER PROGRAMMESApart from entrepreneurship and enterprise development, Rhiza Babuyile also runs programmes in the fields of education, healthcare and skills development, all as a means to help reduce some of the most common symptoms of poverty.Through its education programme, it focuses on early childhood development (ECD). Most ECD programmes in townships are informal, meaning that children often only receive a formal education from the age of seven or higher.Rhiza Babuyile has also established mobile clinics and what it calls semi-fixed clinics in various townships, including Diepsloot and Orange Farm.These clinics, while catering to a wide range of illnesses and injuries, dedicate most of their resources to mother and child care, dental care, TB and HIV/Aids.Much like the entrepreneurship and enterprise development programmes, the organisation’s skills development programme aims to equip people in townships with the knowledge and marketable skills they need to compete in the job market.“They’re doing a great job providing us with such opportunities,” Tau says. “We as Diepsloot youth, here we don’t have facilities, we don’t have information. We don’t have many things here.”PLAY YOUR PARTEveryone can make a positive difference in their own way.

PSG striker Neymar off on stretcher after twisting ankle

Marseille is two points further back in third.PSG’s first two goals stemmed from Marseille’s mistakes at the back.In the 10th minute, PSG right back Dani Alves’ pass behind the defense was easily read by left back Jordan Amavi. But rather than clearing the ball properly, his soft sliding tackle knocked it to Kylian Mbappe, who skipped past another defender before drilling a low shot into the bottom right corner.ADVERTISEMENT The second goal came from the other side, as midfielder Adrien Rabiot broke down the left and his cross found Neymar, whose side-footed pass was turned into his own net by center half Jorge Rolando in the 28th.PSG’s third in the 56th owed nothing to fortune, as Cavani expertly controlled Neymar’s pass from the left with the inside of his foot, easily turned Rolando and smacked in a powerful shot past goalkeeper Yohann Pele for his league-leading 24th of the season.Mbappe shook his head disapprovingly when substituted, with winger Angel Di Maria replacing him for the last 30 minutes.Marseille threatened mainly from midfielder Dimitri Payet’s laser-like free kicks, but no one could get on the end of them.___SAME OLD MISTAKESLyon’s poor defending cost the team once again as right back Mathieu Debuchy scored a last-minute equalizer for local rival Saint-Etienne in a 1-1 draw.Debuchy, a recent signing from Premier League Arsenal, was left unmarked inside the penalty area to steer in a shot off the post from Remy Cabella’s left-wing cross.Lyon has only two points from the past five games — conceding 11 goals — and the club’s hopes of securing a top-three finish and a place in next season’s Champions League are fading fast. Fourth-place Lyon is five points behind third-place Marseille.A brilliantly executed goal from striker Mariano Diaz, his 15th of the season, gave Lyon a 19th-minute lead. He chested down a long pass from Brazilian defender Marcelo with his back to goal, flicked the ball around a defender with his right foot and then regained his balance before adroitly clipping it with his left past goalkeeper Stephane Ruffier.The two teams are bitter rivals with 17 league titles between them, including a French-record 10 for Saint-Etienne. But Lyon has been the superior team for many years, winning seven titles from 2002-08.SAVED BY THE WOODWORK Read Next PSG’s Neymar, center left, is tackled by Marseille’s Hiroki Sakai, during the French League One soccer match between Paris Saint-Germain and Marseille at the Parc des Princes Stadium, in Paris, France, Sunday, Feb. 25, 2018.

Kentucky Basketball: Potential No. 1 Pick Karl-Anthony Towns Fulfilling “Childhood Dream” Of Appearing On Sport Science

first_imgSportsScience basketball floor with logo.IG/karltownsLater this month, Kentucky star Karl-Anthony Towns may be the No. 1 pick in the NBA Draft. We have to imagine that is some serious dream fulfillment for him. Before that happens, Towns will have another dream come true—he is set to appear on ESPN’s Sport Science, based on a recent Instagram post.We’re just going to go ahead and say it: this makes us feel VERY old. Sport Science began in 2007, and didn’t come to ESPN until 2010, when Towns was just 14 years old. Sorry for making this too real.last_img read more

DL Rashad Weaver De-Commits From Michigan, Says Jim Harbaugh And Staff Stopped Contacting Him

first_imgJim Harbaugh head coach of the Michigan Wolverines shouts during the game against the Penn State Nittany Lions.Michigan picked up a commitment from three-star defensive lineman and former PSU commit Michael Dwumfour earlier today. Tonight, the Wolverines lost a pledge from three-star Florida defensive lineman Rashad Weaver, but Weaver’s explanation for his decision is what will garner the most attention.In a message on Twitter, Weaver said he chose to de-commit after the Michigan staff basically stopped speaking to him for seven months. Head coach Jim Harbaugh informed him there was only a 50/50 chance he’d be able to sign with the Wolverines next week, and offered him the option of accepting a preferred walk-on opportunity or going to prep school. Decommit…. pic.twitter.com/lQAKijMzyW— Shad (@R_Weaver80) January 26, 2016If Weaver’s story is accurate, this isn’t a good look for Michigan.

Buckeyes lean on Buford early in rout of UTSA

CLEVELAND — Though the Buckeyes left Texas-San Antonio’s coach saying, “Wow,” what many thought would be a cupcake matchup got off to a slow start for the overall No. 1-seeded team. The Ohio State men’s basketball team (33-2) buried No. 16 seed UTSA, 75-46, in the second round of the NCAA Tournament on Friday, but for the first seven minutes of the game, only one Buckeye put points on the board. Junior guard William Buford matched UTSA (20-14) nearly shot for shot in the opening minutes, as the Roadrunners sank four of their first five shots, including one from beyond the arc. The 6-foot-5 Buckeye began with 3-for-4 shooting, including 1-of-1 from deep, accounting for OSU’s first seven points. “My teammates, they were giving me the ball and shots were open,” a soft-spoken Buford said following the game, “so I was just taking good shots and I was able to knock them down.” Freshman forward Jared Sullinger was the first of Buford’s teammates to score. With the Buckeyes trailing, 9-7, Sullinger made a game-tying layup 6:57 in. UTSA never regained the lead. The homelike atmosphere at the Quicken Loans Arena, just two hours north of Columbus, provided the Buckeyes with ample support throughout the game. Of the more than 20,000 who attended Friday’s game — the largest crowd ever to attend a college basketball game in Ohio — a vast majority were Buckeye fans. Each of OSU’s baskets was met with a roaring applause, while the Roadrunners received some audible boos throughout the contest. Freshman point guard Aaron Craft said the overwhelming crowd support made the team feel like it was playing at home in Columbus. Though Buford’s energy was all that kept the Buckeyes’ heads above water early, coach Thad Matta said the rest of the team stayed focused to come out with the win. That collective discipline paid off, as the Buckeye defense did not allow UTSA to return to enjoying the 80 percent shooting it did in the beginning. “We came out with a slow start,” Buford said, “but picked up our pace and clamped down on defense.” OSU held UTSA to 10-for-22 shooting, including only 1-of-8 from 3-point territory, in the first half. The Buckeyes entered halftime with a comfortable 37-21 lead behind 15 points from Buford, who finished the game with a team-high 18 points. “Will can do whatever he needs to do,” Craft said. “He’s definitely willing to take his shots, and he knocked them down.” The Roadrunners’ shooting success only diminished as the game wore on, and the Buckeyes’ 16-point halftime lead inflated to as large as 38 in the second half. OSU held UTSA to just 25.8 percent shooting in the second, at times more than doubling the Roadrunners’ score. “We wanted to send a message out today,” Buford said, “and let people know we’re here to take care of business.” UTSA coach Brooks Thompson heard that message loud and clear. “Wow,” he said. “They’re good.” Despite his team’s second-round thrashing, Matta said the Buckeyes don’t take anything for granted as they look toward their next matchup and a tougher road ahead in what many call the tournament’s most competitive region. “Every step you take in the NCAA Tournament forward,” he said, “you’re going to play a better basketball team.” The Buckeyes will move on to the tournament’s third round, in which they will face No. 8 seed George Mason (27-6) on Sunday. Minutes before the OSU-UTSA opening tip, the Patriots clawed back from a consistent second-half deficit to defeat No. 9 seed Villanova (21-12), 61-57. OSU forward David Lighty, who contributed eight points in the Buckeyes’ victory, said George Mason is a team that’s good enough to make it to Houston. “They’re no cupcake,” the fifth-year senior Buckeye said. “When you hear ‘George Mason,’ you hear about a team going to the Final Four.” The Buckeyes and Patriots will tip off at 5 p.m. Sunday at the Quicken Loans Arena. OSU has not won a national title since 1960, but Devin Gibson, who netted a game-high 24 points and was the only Roadrunner to post double-digit points Friday, said this could be its year. “I think they play how a championship team plays inside out,” the senior point guard said. “They passed the ball around and just found the open man and made shots — what a championship team does.” read more
