Redknapp sacked by Birmingham after 13 matches

first_imgShare on: WhatsApp “A lot of the targets I was after I couldn’t get over the line. I still felt that given time I would have given them a team that would have been challenging for promotion, I had no doubt about that.” Harry RedknappLondon, United Kingdom | AFP | Veteran manager Harry Redknapp was sacked by second-tier Birmingham City on Saturday after a 3-1 home defeat by Preston North End, just his 13th game in charge.The 70-year-old, whose coaching career has included Tottenham Hotspur and Portsmouth, was briefly hailed as a saviour after he kept Birmingham in the division last term having taken over following a disastrous spell in charge by Italian Gianfranco Zola.However, despite an influx of players in the close season, Birmingham suffered a sixth successive defeat and have just four points from eight league matches.“I am disappointed. It’s been difficult, I have had one week with a new team and new players, one week,” Redknapp told the Birmingham Mail.“It’s not an excuse but today I had three of the forwards missing who I would have picked, probably the three most exciting players in all honesty.“It takes time to build a football team, not one week. I didn’t get the players in I was after in pre-season and suddenly I have got a load of players in.last_img read more

SA research spending ‘on track’

first_img11 June 2008Close to one percent of South Africa’s gross domestic product (GDP) comes from research and development (R&D) spending by the public and private sectors, ensuring that the country’s economy remains competitive in the global arena.Science and technology plays an important role in the South African economy, and is seen as essential in order to increase economic growth to 6% per annum by 2010, as called for by the Accelerated and Shared Growth Initiative for South Africa (Asgi-SA).Addressing Parliament in Cape Town last month, Science and Technology Minister Mosibudi Mangena said R&D spending, which currently stood at 0.9% of South Africa’s GDP, was a good indication of the competitiveness of the country’s economy.Delivering his budget speech, he said that the department had received an allocation of R3.7-billion for the 2008/9 financial year, for a wide range of science projects and programmes.While private enterprises currently funded about half of the country’s R&D spend, he said the budget allocation was vital, as his department was responsible for ensuring that South Africa maintained and strengthened its competitiveness by increasing investment in relevant R&D initiatives.Developing critical skillsIn addition, a further R195-million has been set aside to strengthen the scientific capacity of higher education institutions in the country, as part of the department’s goal to combat the critical shortage of human resources in science, engineering and technology.“This is in light of the number of research chairs, which will increase by at least 30% over the next three years, providing mentorship to postgraduate students,” said Mangena.This investment in human capital development is in line with the department’s national R&D strategy, which among others, puts enormous value on human capital, and canvasses for the spirit and practice of innovation to be treated as a national asset.One of the challenges facing the department was that the number of school-leavers who have science as a grade 12 subject remained low.“If we continue to lose our best young minds, our National System of Innovation will be rendered completely ineffectual, and our infrastructure, environment and economy will suffer,” he said.Skills development in science and technology remains a key challenge for the country’s science system and the department, through its Youth into Science Strategy, places emphasis on interventions aimed at popularising mathematics and science related careers at high school level.Square Kilometre ArrayIn addition the country was currently working towards winning the bid to host the Square Kilometre Array in partnership with, and for the benefit of the entire continent, Mangena said.By winning the bid, Southern Africa would receive a major boost in radio astronomy research, with more student training and an increased infrastructure layout.The department is also working towards the creation and establishment of the Technology Innovation Agency, which will be a public funding agency to bridge the innovation gap between the local knowledge base and the productive economy.These initiatives are all part of a larger plan, the Ten-Year Innovation Plan for South Africa, which maps the course for enhancing innovation and enormous potential to contribute to sustained economic growth over the next decade.Source: BuaNewslast_img read more

Tetyana naturals 4D Silk Fiber Lash Mascara Waterproof – Great, would recommend to all

first_img Ordered this for a wedding and it matches my dress perfect. The colour is gorgeous, speedy delivery. Good tools, lots of uses, and fast delivery. Perfect, pretty, good quality feel. Makes eyelashes look amazing. No clumping just long volumised lashes. I like to get all my loved ones/friends this, cos its so nice and cool on my feet, and fun with the cracking. Will definitely order again. Good product and as described. If you are, like me, a natural tanner then this is for you but only use once you have a tan to make it better. Have used these for two separate colds now my 4 month old has had and they work fantastically to loosen up any mucus that is making her struggle to breath. I then use a nasal aspirator to remove any snot. Loved this went perfectly with my dress. In fact it was so nice i bought a second one in a different colour for future use. The shimmers are absolutely amazing. They blend quite well into one another. The matte colours are also great too. I’m not a fan on the heavy glitter on the bottom row but they are really nice. I thought they might have been patchy but they werent. I’ll try upload swatches later. Honestly, amazing value for money. I didn’t even get fall out when applying. Helped my son breathe better when he had a bad cold. He hated having them in, but they did clear his nose and he was able to sleep soundly enough after using. I combined with a nasal aspirator, as well as a plug in menthol device that helped keep his airways clear. Came much earlier than estimated, very pleased with these they work perfectly for the job needed. Same as the slightly expensive ones. These have arabic and english on them as they are normally exported but the same content. Will buy more in the future. Great product, perfect for when you get home from a hard day at work and your feet are burning and tired, the mousse cools and refreshes your feet well. Only downside to product is i feel it doesn’t moisturise my feet as well as i would like it to but still a great product to cool your tired feet,. If your child has a stuffy nose, is finding it hard to breath or just has huge ‘boogers’, then this stuff really helps. A few drops up one or both nostrils helps break down any structure and blockage. Seems to work very quickly too. Dropper makes it easy to administer, but a larger bottle or perhaps a re-fillable bottle would be handy. Good value considering that it helps our child breath more easily again and so quickly too.

Lepley Farms finds balance in growing herd and compliance with new barn

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Ty Higgins, Ohio Ag NetFor a few years now, Dave Lepley has been contemplating expanding his Huron County cattle herd. He knew he wanted to grow the number of head on his farm, but if he was going to take a big step in that direction, he wanted to do it the right way.“We had a bed-pack dry lot with about 300 head and as we did research for expansion we came across the idea for this new cattle barn,” Lepley said. “We wanted to comply with a lot of different things. We had to have cattle comfort, we had to have compliance with EPA rules because of our proximity to Lake Erie so we wanted to be sure that as we built our herd size we could house them all in one facility.”The result is a 101-foot by 321-foot by16-foot indoor feedlot facility in Bellevue permitted to hold 1,000 head of cattle.“We traveled to many states and toured many barns and decided to go with a gable roof barn,” Lepley said. “It has a full liner underneath the pit so we can hold at least 400 days worth of manure so we can apply our nutrients when we can versus when we have to. In the spring, it typically stays wetter, longer in this region. We do have our dry periods in August and September but the crops are still in the field, so we have to push our manure hauling away from the wintertime and early spring when it is so wet to fall. There was really no way we could build a dry pack manure holding facility. We knew if we were going to expand we were going to have to hold liquid manure.”The pit is 12 feet deep and the eaves are 16 feet high so air flow, one of the items of Lepley’s wish list for expansion, is not a problem. Good nutrition was also on that list.“We are on a higher fiber ration. We use silage, wet distillers’ grain, cracked corn and a supplement,” Lepley said. “For our current herd, the barn average is eating about 46 pounds per head, per day. Our rate of gain is about 3,000 pounds of meat a day for just over 1,000 head. You can tell they are happy when that is happening.”Part of that happiness comes from another feature of Lepley’s new barn — all of the pens are lined with rubber.“You hear a lot of stories about livestock facilities before the rubber was put on the slats about how uncomfortable the cattle were,” Lepley said. “Our experience with our first cattle in this barn was that they arrived at 380 pounds and we didn’t have any issues with legs and they were comfortable until they were ready for market.”And Lepley says he is hoping this new facility will bring some comfort to those living around his area as well.“We are trying to be the best neighbors and the best stewards of the land that we can be,” Lepley said. “With Lake Erie being so close we are really focused on that. We work closely with the Ohio Department of Agriculture. They come and tour our facility at least twice a year. We have a monitoring well for all ground waters around here. We send our samples in and things come back looking really good.”The barn was constructed by Summit Livestock Facilities and their beef specialist Mike Schluttenhofer has been a part of the process since day 1.“This barn is all designed around air flow and sunlight,” Schluttenhofer said. “It’s broken into eight pens and it has a valley down the center for feed and the pit extends 10 feet past the south side of the barn to add a little bit more holding capacity.”Barns like the one on Lepley’s farm are also very beneficial when it comes to putting together a Crop Nutrient Management Plan.“When the manure is taken out of the pit and put onto the fields, they are able to track how much is put on each field so that they can cut down on the leaching of nutrients into the creeks, Schluttenhofer said.These types of facilities are becoming more common across the countryside as Ohio cattlemen work to protect the environment and maximize the returns on their investment.“There is a lot more indoor cattle feeding going on now with new regulations,” Schluttenhofer said. “It’s getting to be a pretty popular idea to control your manure and feed cattle inside. It is just a more efficient way to run a livestock operation. It’s a way to increase revenue without picking up extra acres of ground, which are hard to get these days.”last_img read more

Two Chinese nationals among three killed in boiler explosion

first_imgThree persons, including two Chinese nationals, died when a boiler exploded at an animal feed manufacturing unit in Nuh, about 40 km from Gurugram, on Sunday.The deceased have been identified as senior engineer Jhin Jhin Yang, production engineer Jhang Yang and Vicky Rajput, an operator. Vicky was a resident of Sohna in Gurugram.Nuh SP Sangeeta Kalia said the incident took place around 3:30 p.m. when the boiler in Pusilin Biotechnology exploded during repair. “Vicky was carrying out some welding work to repair the boiler and the two Chinese nationals were standing close to him when the boiler exploded, causing a fire. All three were engulfed in flames and died on the spot,” she said. The company, which manufactures and trades in animal and poultry feed, was set up in 2017.Ms. Kalia said preliminary investigation suggested the incident was caused due to lack of proper maintenance of the boiler and the police were trying to contact the management. “A case will be registered against the management in this connection. We are trying to procure documents from them about the periodic maintenance of the boiler,” she said.Five fire tenders from Nuh and Sohna were sent to put out the fire. Locals claimed that the fire tenders took 30 minutes to reach the spot. The bodies were pulled out after the fire was doused and sent to Shahid Hasan Khan Medical College for post-mortem.last_img read more
