Kalou gives Chelsea victory in Lisbon

first_imgBenfica 0 Chelsea 1Salomon Kalou’s 76th-minute goal gave Chelsea a first-leg victory in Lisbon, putting them within sight of the Champions League semi-finals.Kalou slotted home after great work from Fernando Torres, who charged down the right and then crossed for the Ivorian to score from close range.AdChoices广告Torres set up Kalou’s goal.It atoned for a bad miss by Kalou earlier in the second half, when he headed over at the near post following another cross from the lively Torres.Chelsea had also gone close when Juan Mata pounced after a mistake by Brazilian defender Jardel and rounded keeper Artur only to see his shot from a tight angle come back off the post.Benfica looked dangerous at times – Oscar Cardozo fired wide in the first half and in the second was denied by David Luiz’s goal-line clearance.But Kalou’s goal knocked the stuffing out of the home side, and Mata had a chance to make it two but sent a late effort wastefully over.There was a scare right at the end though, when Ashley Cole almost scored an own goal.Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

First Gautrain rail cars arrive in SA

first_img5 December 2008The first two of the Gautrain’s 96 Electrostar rail cars have arrived in South Africa, to be transported to the train depot in Midrand, Johannesburg.The cars are being manufactured in Derby in England, and transported by ship to Durban, then loaded on to large trailers and transported by road to Gauteng province. Each car measures 21 metres in length and weighs 46 tons.Fifteen of the rail cars, including all 10 airport rail cars, with luggage space and wider seats, are being manufactured and completed in Derby.“Following a specialised construction and assembly process at the Bombardier Transportation manufacturing facility in Derby, United Kingdom, Gautrain’s first 15 Bombardier Electrostar rail cars are finally completing the long journey home,” a statement from the Gautrain office says.Their journey from the Derby workshop involves being transported by road to Immingham harbour on the east coast of England, then by sea to Antwerp, and from there by sea to Durban.Second shipmentThe first shipment of two completed rail cars arrived in Durban on 1 December. The next shipment containing a further two completed rail cars is expected to arrive in Durban on 8 December. The road trip will take four days to reach Midrand, taking back roads where possible.“In Midrand, each rail car will undergo extensive quality and safety testing, including 3 000 kilometres of test running in the standard four-car train set configuration on the Gautrain test track.”The other 81 rail cars, designed for commuter services, are being flat packed into crates for assembly and completion by Union Carriage and Wagon partnership in Nigel on the East Rand.“Motorists are advised to be on the look out for the abnormal load and exercise caution and patience at all times.”ProgressIn late October the tunnel between Sandton and Marlboro merged, a major milestone. The tunnel towards Park Station has now reached Parktown, after making its way under Oxford Road in Killarney.The Gautrain will travel at speeds of 160 kilometres an hour between Johannesburg, Pretoria and OR Tambo International Airport, with the route between the airport and Sandton to be ready in time for the 2010 Fifa World Cup.Source: City of Johannesburglast_img read more

Criminal justice revamp ‘under way’

first_img10 February 2009The government is determined to deal with crime in South Africa through the creation of a modern, efficient and integrated criminal justice system.Speaking during a parliamentary debate on the President’s state of the nation address in Cape Town on Monday, Safety and Security Minister Nathi Mthethwa said all South Africans shared President Kgalema Motlanthe’s concern about the crime levels in the country.Mthethwa said the government was reviewing the performance of South Africa’s criminal justice system along the whole value chain, including the functioning of the police, the judiciary and correctional services, with the aim of improving integration and coordination.The team conducting the review had already identified an urgent need to improve the collection, storage and use of fingerprinting and DNA evidence in South Africa.The Department of Justice had subsequently put forward amendments to the Criminal Law (Forensic Procedures) Bill that would give police investigators access to the extensive databases of other state departments, and expand their power to take and retain fingerprints and other biometric material.Special attention, Mthethwa said, was also being given to the fight against serious and violent crime, organised crime and criminal syndicate activity.The minister said the government would act speedily to establish the Directorate of Priority Crime Investigation, which will be replacing the Directorate of Special Operations, popularly known as the Scorpions. He added that the new unit would takes on board the positive aspects of the Scorpions while shedding the old unit’s weaknesses.Mthethwa said the government had embarked on a nationwide campaign to increase the capacity of the South African Police Service (SAPS) through recruitment, rigorous training and better remuneration.“Steps are being taken to better equip and increase the capacity of detective services, forensics, prosecution and judicial services … [T]raining is earmarked to commence in earnest this year.”Source: BuaNewslast_img read more

Steps for a successful lambing or kidding season

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Goat and sheep lambing season is here and well underway for some producers. It is always important to review your last lambing/kidding season and its successes and failures as you prepare to raises lambs and kids during the current year. The following article offers some helpful tips for goat and sheep producers.Take some time to read the tips below. Some of them may be review, but you never know when you will learn something new that could help your herd or flock.6 steps for a successful lambing or kidding seasonBy Tom Earleywine, Ph.D., director of nutritional services for Land O’Lakes Animal Milk Products Co.The health, growth and early performance of a lamb or kid crop directly impact’s future performance in the milking parlor, pasture or showring. As a result, long-term successes can be driven by success during the lambing and kidding season.Nutrition is essential in giving lambs and kids a solid start. High quality milk replacer can be a solution to success; however, success is not guaranteed on milk replacer alone. Here is a look at six steps to a successful total management program shared at the 2015 Dairy Sheep Association of North America Symposium.Step 1: Set obtainable goals.Before the first lamb hits the ground, analyze past performance of the flock, set tangible goals and determine a path for achieving these goals.Consider a 200 percent lamb or kid crop as an attainable goal. Mature and well-conditioned ewes and does should be able to lamb at least two lambs or kids. Strive for less than 5 percent pre-weaning mortality. The industry target is less than 5 percent, but it’s estimated that 20 percent of lambs are lost before weaning, with 80 percent of those losses in the first 10 days.[1]Step 2: Provide newborn care.Within the first few minutes after a lamb or kid is born, they are exposed to bacteria and pathogens. Two ways to protect against these pathogens are: navel disinfection and quality colostrum.Dip the newborn’s navel in 7 percent tincture iodine immediately after birth, ensure the disinfectant covers both the outside and inside of the navel.Colostrum or the first milk in lactation is the primary protection newborns receive against environmental pathogens and bacteria. Lambs and kids should receive 10 percent of their body weight in colostrum by 18 hours of age, fed at 105 degrees F. For example, a 10 pound lamb should be fed 1 pound or 16 ounces of colostrum in the first 18 hours of its life.Keep in mind that fluctuations in colostrum quality and quantity are probable; a colostrum replacement can be used to ensure all lambs and kids receive a high-quality, disease-free colostrum.Step 3: Select a species-specific milk replacer.After newborns are fed high-quality colostrum or colostrum replacer for the first feeding, they can be transitioned to a milk replacer.Look for a milk replacer made specifically for lambs or kids. Many options of milk replacer may be available to you, but calves, lambs, kids, pigs, alpacas, puppies and kittens all have different nutrient requirements. Milk replacers formulated for lambs are better able to provide the nutrients lambs require because they closely mimic the composition of ewe’s milk. The same is true with kid-specific milk replacers for kid goats.Step 4: Choose the right feeding system.Bottle feeding, free-choice feeding or an automated system are the three primary means of feeding lambs and kids on milk replacer.Select which system is the best fit by considering the facilities, size of operation, labor situation and performance objectives. Make sure the system provides enough nutrition so lambs and kids at least triple their birth weight by 28 days of age. Clean and disinfect the system as often as possible.Step 5: Stimulate rumen development.The rumen is the main site for nutrient breakdown and absorption in mature ruminants and in other species has been highly correlated to health and performance of the animal.When a lamb or kid is born, the rumen is not fully developed and neither are the papillae inside the rumen. Growth of the rumen papillae and rumen development can be correlated with what the lamb or kid eats pre-weaning.If the rumen is not developed appropriately, weaning can be delayed or unsuccessful. Water is a critical ingredient in the development of bacterial growth and the beginning of rumen fermentation. Always provide free choice water.Step 6: Promote a smooth weaning transition.Lambs and kids are ready for weaning when they consume an equivalent of 1.5 percent of their body weight in high-quality creep feed along with adequate water. Usually this will occur near 30 days of age or 35 pounds of weight. At weaning time, each lamb should have consumed at least 25 pounds of lamb milk replacer powder.Follow these steps to weaning:Plan weaning protocol, timing and facilities 14 to 21 days prior to weaning.Ensure animals are consuming creep feed and utilizing water.Gradually remove milk replacer or remove ewe.Feed a high protein ration (18 to 25 percent crude protein).Following these six steps provides a total management system for successfully raising lambs or kids, especially when on milk replacer. Setting goals, providing a high-quality colostrum and milk replacer, comfortable housing, and ready access to high quality feed and water will help lambs and kids thrive.For more information on lamb and kid nutrition, contact Tom Earleywine, Ph.D., at (800) 618-6455 or [email protected], visit www.lolmilkreplacer.com or like We Care for Lambs or We Care for Kids on Facebook.  [1]S.
