POTCHEFSTROOM, South Africa (Reuters) – South Africa need seven wickets on the last day to secure victory in the first Test and go ahead in the two-match series as Bangladesh struggled on a rain-curtailed fourth day at Senwes Park on Sunday.Morne Morkel snagged two wickets in the first over of Bangladesh’s second innings and they were 49 for three at stumps, still 375 runs shy of an improbable victory.South Africa, who had started the day 54-2, declared their second innings on 247 for six, with captain Faf du Plessis scoring 81 and Temba Bavuma 71.A partnership of 142 between the pair pushed along the scoring rate as South Africa sought to set Bangladesh a large target, but still give themselves enough time to bowl them out on a pitch that has proven lifeless.Two breaks for rain hastened the decision to declare and when Morkel bowled Tamim Iqbal with the fourth ball of the opening over and then had Mominul Haque trapped leg before two balls later, it seemed all was going to plan for the home team.Mominul had consulted with Imrul Kayes about reviewing the decision to give him out but was persuaded not do so, only for television replays to show Morkel’s delivery was headed well down off and that the umpire had made a poor decision.Morkel then removed the middle stump of Mustafizur Rahman with the second ball of his next over only for TV to show he had bowled a no-ball, reinstating the batsman.It means Morkel now holds the world record of 14 test dismissals being overturned because his foot was over the bowling crease. To add to the ignominy, he was later taken to hospital with a side strain that could rule him out of the rest of the series.Imrul was the third wicket to fall as he was caught behind off the spin bowling of Keshav Maharaj for 32. Captain Mustafizur, not out on 16, and Liton Das will resume on the last day with survival uppermost on the visitors’ agenda. SOUTH AFRICA 1st innings 496 for 3 decl (D. Elgar 199, H. Amla 137, A.

The amount of money the university received from patent licenses, as well as the number of patents issued to USC, increased substantially from the 2009 to the 2010 fiscal year.Licensing revenue nearly tripled from 2009 to 2010 from around $4.5 million to $12.3 million, while the number of United States patents issued to the university increased from 43 to 58.The USC Stevens Institute for Innovation, which is in charge of managing the university’s intellectual property, attributes the increase in patents and patent revenue to a growing focus on specialization.The Stevens Institute for Innovation has encouraged faculty members to focus their knowledge on particular fields of study, according to Ian Murphy, director of communications for the institute.“Within the past year, we’ve dedicated industry teams, like a life sciences team, in which people who work under that licensing area have a deep background and have commercialized companies and products in that particular field,” Murphy said. “These people are uniquely qualified to work in that certain field because they have the interest and expertise to work on a project for long amounts of time.”Direct methanol fuel cells, which were invented by a USC Loker Hydrocarbon Research Institute team and have the capability to generate clean and efficient energy from methanol, are an example of a patent the university added within the last year. The technology has since been licensed out to other institutions, such as SFC Energy Inc., a German manufacturer of methanol fuel cells for automobiles.“Direct methanol fuel technology had been in the works [at USC] for several years and the technology has incredible applications for something like recreational vehicles, because it’s very clean and off the grid,” Murphy said. “The fuel cells would allow you to park your vehicle, and then use these battery-style direct methanol fuel cells to power your kitchen and lights and other thing without hurting the environment.”The Stevens Institute for Innovation also offers services and advice for students wishing to patent their ideas or innovations, Murphy said.“Students wishing to patent their ideas can go to the legal office hours of a patent attorney on campus, which would allow them to consult with an attorney and decide the best way to pursue a particular idea,” Murphy said.The Stevens Institute for Innovation also holds the annual USC Student Innovator Showcase and Competition, where student innovators pitch ideas for new innovations in several different disciplines, such as cinematic arts, information technology and life sciences. The event is designed to encourage student innovation and entrepreneurship.Judges for the showcase award cash prizes to the most innovative and most business-savvy ideas.Sonic Edge, an device that implements ultrasound smart-sensors with disposable surgical tools such as needles, was named most innovative at the 2011 Student Innovator Showcase, held Oct. 28.

I decided to arrest him as the situation may have escalated.”The court heard that Nichols has 47 previous convictions.Judge Paul Kelly issued a bench warrant for the court to sentence the accused.Man went berserk when told his social welfare was being cut off was last modified: March 26th, 2019 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:ChaircourtcutdoleletterkennyMartin Nicholssocial welfare
“Ladies and gentlemen, this is your captain speaking. We have a small problem. All four engines have stopped. We are doing our damnedest to get them under control. I trust you are not in too much distress.”The chilling address delivered calmly by Capt. Eric Moody over 30 years ago has become the greatest airline passenger announcement of all time and is brought back to life by the eruption of yet another Indonesian volcano.For the 263 passengers and crew aboard flight BA9, a British Airways 747 flying through a moonless night from Kuala Lumpur to Perth on June 24, 1982, death was only a matter of time.Initially, they were in awe of the strange, static electrical light show outside but that quickly turned to terror as the jet’s four engines glowed white, spurted flames and halted. It was 9.43pm.“Horrific, ” is how passenger Arthur Ewen, of Scarborough, described the feeling in this 2012 interview. “It still affects me and Shirley today. The cabin was quiet, people were praying. We just hugged and held hands.”The 747 had blundered into the ash cloud from the sudden eruption of Mt Galunggung, 110km south of Jakarta.The passengers and crew faced an agonising 42 minutes before the 747 touched down in Jakarta.Capt. Moody was on his way to the toilet.“Suddenly I was summoned back to the cockpit, ” he told Australian Aviation. “On the way back, I noticed puffs of smoke billowing out of the floor vents and there was an acrid smell or ionised electrical smell.”When Capt. Moody entered the flight deck, he saw the most intense display of St Elmo’s fire — a blue-glowing form of atmospheric electricity — dancing across the windshield.Senior First Officer Richard Greaves and Senior Engineer Barry Townley-Freeman were already taking action.“Richard pointed out the glow from the engines and what could only be described as tracer bullets streaming towards the cockpit, ” Capt. Moody said.What worried Capt. Moody — and terrified the passengers — was the smoke billowing out of the air-conditioning system.The air was then punctuated by a chilling call from the engineer: “Engine failure number four.”Within seconds the problem became worse. “Engine failure number two, three’s gone . . . they’ve all gone.”The crew was faced with a bewildering array of confusing dials and amber caution lights. They noticed a slowing of airspeed and put the 747 into a slow descent.Capt. Moody instructed FO Greaves to put out a mayday call: “Jakarta, Jakarta, mayday, mayday, Speedbird 9. We’ve lost all four engines.”But it took some time for the full gravity of the message to get through because the static around the 747 was interfering with radio transmissions. “We had absolutely no idea what had happened, ” Capt. Moody said. “We had to think outside the box — it was so confusing.”At 26,000ft, the cabin pressure warning sounded and the crew donned their masks. But the FO’s mask fell apart in his hands, forcing Capt. Moody into an emergency descent.Mr Ewen remembers the passengers were numb with fear, which turned to horror as repeated failed attempts to restart the engines sent fuel spewing out the back, which was then ignited by the St Elmo’s fire dancing over and around the wings.As the 747 reached 14,000ft, Capt. Moody said he started to consider a water landing. “I think we had another 10 minutes of glide left. My pondering was broken by the jubilation of the rest of the crew as number four started.”Within 90 seconds the other three engines had come back to life.Speedbird 9 was cleared to Jakarta but there was a complication Capt. Moody recounts.“We had great difficulty picking up the lights and what we didn’t realise is that the front windows were almost opaque from the ash.”The landing — despite many problems — was smooth and was greeted with “thunderous applause and cheers from the passengers”, Mr Ewen said.Reflecting on the incredible events Capt. Moody mused: “When I learnt to fly in the 50s, flying was dangerous and sex was safe. “When I retired in the 90s, that had gone the other way around!”
JAM managed to reach more than 44 000 preschool children attending JAM-supported early childhood development programmes by the end of 2013. It asks members of the public for help in reaching more children in need of proper nourishment. (Image: JAM)With such a large number of families living on or below the breadline, the need for intervention to ensure people receive basic necessities such as food and water has become increasingly important.This is why, for the past three decades, the Joint Aid Management (JAM) non-profit organisation has made the fight against hunger and malnutrition in Africa its main commitment.“I think JAM is probably the best kept secret in upliftment around the world,” said Gavin Varejes, the executive chairman of Richmark Holdings, one of the corporate sponsors of the NGO.“I think that their programmes – not only their feeding schemes and how they’re trying to change the lives of people – their housing [and] their very basic needs of life skills, life orientation, health and hygiene and Aids awareness, those are the real things, the knowledge that JAM imparts to people that need it.”A large segment of the organisation’s resources go to sustaining the feeding schemes it runs scattered throughout Limpopo, Gauteng, KwaZulu-Natal, Eastern Cape and Western Cape.Through these feeding schemes, JAM had managed to reach more than 44 000 preschool children attending JAM-supported early childhood development programmes by the end of 2013. It asks members of the public for help in reaching more children in need of proper nourishment.PROGRAMMESThough much of the organisation’s initial efforts have gone to its feeding schemes, it has also taken steps to help improve people’s standards of living on three other fronts.Its agricultural development programme was established to equip people living in poverty with the means to produce food for themselves through subsistence farming. The organisation has provided more than 900 micro-farmers in Gauteng with the skills and equipment to run and sustain their own backyard and community gardens.Similarly its water sanitation programme focuses on teaching people about the threat of water-borne pathogens and the illnesses they cause, as well as ways to avoid fatal infection. According to the World Bank, more than 1.5 million people died as a result of water-borne diseases in 2012 alone, highlighting the danger of such infections.JAM has made it a point to emphasise water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) issues in the communities where it has provided sources of water through boreholes, wells and rain-harvesting systems.Since JAM began its water sanitation programme, it has drilled more than 2 500 water wells across the country, according to its website.It has also created an early childhood development programme (ECD) which it has brought to more than 1 000 ECD centres, day-cares and crèches around the country. This is an attempt to help children living in rural and informal settlements to develop to their fullest.Since JAM began its water sanitation programme, it has drilled more than 2 500 water wells across the country, according to its website.GET INVOLVEDIf you or anyone you know would like to get involved in the activities of the JAM organisation, you can have a look at its get involved page on its website for more details regarding how you can help.You can chose between donating funds to the organisation to help it meet its operational costs, volunteering your time at one of the many sites where the organisation is active or by using your connections to help spread word of the JAM initiatives in action around the country.PLAY YOUR PARTAre you playing your part in developing South Africa and its citizens? Do you know anybody who is going out of their way to participate in the development of South Africa and its people?If so, submit your story or video to our website and let us know what you are doing to improve the country for all.
Veteran Wasim Jaffer and opener Sanjay Ramaswamy struck unbeaten centuries as Vidarbha took command against Uttarakhand on the second day of their Ranji Trophy quarter-final match in Nagpur on Wednesday. At close of play, Vidarbha reached 260/1 in the first innings, in response to Uttarakhand’s 355, with Ramaswamy (112 not out) and Jaffer (111 not out) holding fort.The hosts are still adrift by 95 runs at the end of day two at the Vidarbha Cricket Association’s stadium at Jamtha on the city’s outskirts. But the day clearly belonged to Ramaswamy and Jaffer, who conjured an unbeaten 215-run stand for the second wicket after a rare failure by skipper Faiz Fazal (29) who perished early. Fazal was dismissed by right-arm medium pacer Deepak Dhapola.Jaffer in the process struck his fourth ton of this Ranji season, having already hit hundreds in the league stage against Mumbai, Gujarat and Baroda.
