“Wonder goal against West Ham was pure instinct”- Jordan Ayew

first_imgGhana’s Jordan Ayew says his lovely individual Boxing Day goal against West Ham in the Premier League was not planned or rehearsed but it was all down to things coming to him naturally.Ayew’s goal which settled the tie 2-1 in favour of Crystal Palace saw him dribble past four West Ham players and chip the ball over the opposing goalie.Fans have been waxing lyrical about the goal and it was described as “amazing” by the BBC’s commentator.After the match, Ayew told the BBC that he was on auto-pilot as he went through the motions to score the goal.“I think I pushed the ball too far ahead of me and I tried to get it back. Everything that followed was pure instinct.I thank God for everything and I thank the fans too because they have been pushing us since the beginning of the season. This victory is for them. “What did Roy Hodgson say about the goal?“The second goal was one of those goals that will live long in the memory and will get a lot of airings on the television and Jordan Ayew deserves that. It was a fine reward for all his hard work and performances this season.”What’s next for Jordan Ayew and Crystal Palace?They head to Southampton on December 28 in the Premier League.last_img read more

Breast Cancer Basics – What You Should Know About Mammograms And…

first_imgThe goal of the Paint the Town Pink campaign is to get women, age 40 and older, to schedule their annual mammograms and to raise funds for screening mammograms for women who can’t afford them. Here are questions and answers about mammography and breast cancer from the National Institute of Cancer.What is a mammogram?A mammogram is an x-ray picture of the breast.
Mammograms can be used to check for breast cancer in women who have no signs or symptoms of the disease. This type of mammogram is called a screening mammogram. Screening mammograms usually involve two x-ray pictures, or images, of each breast. The x-ray images make it possible to detect tumors that can’t be felt. Screening mammograms can also find microcalcifications (tiny deposits of calcium) that sometimes indicate the presence of breast cancer.
Mammograms can also be used to check for breast cancer after a lump or other sign or symptom of the disease has been found. This type of mammogram is called a diagnostic mammogram. Signs of breast cancer may include pain, skin thickening, nipple discharge, or a change in breast size or shape; however, these signs may also be indicators of benign conditions. A diagnostic mammogram can also be used to evaluate changes found during a screening mammogram or to view breast tissue when it is difficult to obtain a screening mammogram because of special circumstances, such as the presence of breast implants.How are screening and diagnostic mammograms different?Diagnostic mammography takes longer than screening mammography because more x-rays are needed to obtain views of the breast from several angles. The technician may magnify a suspicious area to produce a detailed picture that can help the doctor make an accurate diagnosis.What are the benefits of screening mammograms?Early detection of breast cancer with screening mammography means that treatment can be started earlier in the course of the disease, possibly before it has spread. Results from randomized clinical trials and other studies show that screening mammography can help reduce the number of deaths from breast cancer among women ages 40 to 74, especially for those over age 50.What are the National Cancer Institute’s (NCI) recommendations for screening mammograms?Women age 40 and older should have mammograms every one to two years. Women who are at higher than average risk of breast cancer should talk with their health-care providers about whether to have mammograms before age 40 and how often to have them.What factors increase a woman’s risk of breast cancer?The strongest risk factor for breast cancer is age. A woman’s risk of developing this disease increases as she gets older. The risk of breast cancer, however, is not the same for all women in a given age group. Research has shown that women with the following risk factors have an increased chance of developing breast cancer:Personal history of breast cancerWomen who have had breast cancer are more likely to develop a second breast cancer.Family historyA woman’s chance of developing breast cancer increases if her mother, sister, and/or daughter have been diagnosed with the disease, especially if they were diagnosed before age 50. Having a close male blood relative with breast cancer also increases a woman’s risk of developing the disease.Genetic alterations (changes)Inherited changes in certain genes (for example, BRCA1, BRCA2, and others) increase the risk of breast cancer. These changes are estimated to account for no more than 10 percent of all breast cancers. However, women who carry certain changes in these genes have a much higher risk of breast cancer than women who do not carry these changes.Breast densityWomen who have a high percentage of dense breast tissue have a higher risk of breast cancer than women of similar age who have little or no dense tissue in their breasts. Some of this increase may reflect the “masking” effect of fibroglandular tissue on the ability to detect tumors on mammograms.Certain breast changes found on biopsyLooking at breast tissue under a microscope allows doctors to determine whether cancer or another type of breast change is present. Most breast changes are not cancer, but some may increase the risk of developing breast cancer.Reproductive and menstrual historyWomen who had their first menstrual period before age 12 or who went through menopause after age 55 are at increased risk of developing breast cancer. Women who had their first full-term pregnancy after age 30 or who have never had a full-term pregnancy are also at increased risk of breast cancer.Long-term use of menopausal hormone therapyWomen who use combined estrogen and progestin menopausal hormone therapy for more than five years have an increased chance of developing breast cancer.Radiation therapyWomen who had radiation therapy to the chest (including the breasts) before age 30 have an increased risk of developing breast cancer throughout their lives. This includes women treated for Hodgkin lymphoma. Studies show that the younger a woman was when she received treatment, the higher her risk of developing breast cancer later in life.AlcoholStudies indicate that the more alcohol a woman drinks, the greater her risk of breast cancer.DES (diethylstilbestrol)The drug DES was given to some pregnant women in the United States between 1940 and 1971 to prevent miscarriage. Women who took DES during pregnancy may have a slightly increased risk of breast cancer. The effects of DES exposure on breast cancer risk in their daughters are unclear and still under study.Body weightStudies have found that the chance of getting breast cancer after menopause is higher in women who are overweight or obese.Physical activity levelWomen who are physically inactive throughout life may have an increased risk of breast cancer. Being active may help reduce risk by preventing weight gain and obesity.Additional information about breast cancer and mammography is available from the National Institute of Cancer at the National Institutes of Health at www.Cancer.gov/cancertopics/screening/breast/mammogram.last_img read more

Man to have his sentence appealed by DPP over shooting of neighbour

first_imgA man who walked free from court after shooting a neighbour in a row over a right of way is to have his sentence appealed by the Directorof Public Prosecutions.The Irish Star reports that PJ Friel was charged with assault and discharging a firearm at farmer Gerard Sweeney. Sweeney was hospitalised as a result of the attack which resulted inhim being shot in the face.Friel (48) of Ballynakillew, Churchill, was charged with the offenceson January 3, 2015.Friel was given the benefit of the probation act by Judge John O’Haganon the charges of assault and the discharge of a firearm when heappeared at Buncrana Circuit Court.The DPP had recommended that Friel be trialled by jury.Judge John O’Hagan applied the probation act ‘in the hope that itdiffuses the situation’.The Judge also ordered that three firearms belonging to Friel beseized and disposed of.Judge O’Hagan said “As they say in Alice In Wonderland, hopefully theywill all live happily ever after.“In light of what has happened, the poison is out of the chalice. Inmy view, this is the fairest way to discharge the matter.“It was a very unfortunate affair, brought about in the heat of themoment. A pellet went into Mr Sweeney’s eye and he has had difficultywith that.”Friel faced a possible five years imprisonment for the two charges.The first was a Section 3 assault under the Non-Fatal Offences AgainstThe Persons Act.The second was that he did discharge a firearm being reckless as towhether any person was injured or not contrary to Sec 8 of theFirearms Offenses Weapons Act 1990.Judge O’Hagan said: “Mr Sweeney brought a digger into the land and waspreparing what he considered a right of way to which he thought he wasentitled.“He was seen by Mr Friel and Mr Friel saw red. He thought: ‘This is myland. He has no right to do that’. There had been a disagreementbefore and this led to the final straw.“Mr Friel took the law into his own hands. He had a shotgun anddischarged a cartridge past the digger and Mr Sweeney was injured.”However, the DPP has now applied to have the case and the leniency ofthe sentence appealed.No date has yet been set for the appeal hearing which will be heard atthe Court of Criminal Appeal in Dublin.Man to have his sentence appealed by DPP over shooting of neighbour was last modified: August 9th, 2017 by Staff WriterShare 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:courtdonegalDPPshootinglast_img read more

O’NEILL – “I SPOKE TO SHAY, HE THINKS HE’S READY FOR IT NOW, WHICH IS GREAT FOR US”

first_imgRepublic of Ireland manager Martin O’Neill has revealed that he spoke to Shay Given prior to Ireland’s international friendly clash with Slovakia last night.Ireland were held 2-2 in an entertaining clash as O’Neill ran the rule over a number of players in the run-up to EURO 2016. Ireland’s most capped player Shay Given has had his own injury problems of late, and has also found game time hard to come by.However, an injury to Jack Butland, and his return to full fitness has paved the way for Given to return to the starting XI for Stoke City.Given is also trying to force his way into O’Neill’s EURO 2016 plans.O’Neill told the assembled press last night, “Shay came into the dressing room, I think he was doing some work for TV today. “Obviously the injury to their keeper at Stoke has maybe hastened things on a little bit for him.“He was down to play two games in relatively quick succession, but those plans may change now with Butland injured.“He looked really well, I must admit, but seeing someone out in a suit and nicely dressed is a totally different issue to seeing someone out on the field of play.“But he looked remarkably good, and thinks he’s ready for it now, which is great for us.”O’NEILL – “I SPOKE TO SHAY, HE THINKS HE’S READY FOR IT NOW, WHICH IS GREAT FOR US” was last modified: March 30th, 2016 by Mark ForkerShare 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:Euro 2016IrelandMartin O’NeillShay Givenlast_img read more

Insights into doing business in South Africa

first_imgRay Maota Mahmood Saberi of Gulf News; Bahaa Al awam, a Syrian journalist; Roger Romanos, the senior editor at Al-Iktissad Wal-Aamal Group; Peter Smith of Dubai Gulf Business; and Hala Saqqa, a senior account executive at Hill and Knowlton Strategies in Dubai, are in South Africa to learn more about the country’s economy and business environment, as guests of Brand South Africa. The CEO of Business Unity South Africa, Nomaxabiso Majokweni, said that being in business in South Africa is easy, starting with the registering of your business, which takes nearly a month depending on the complexity of your business. (Images: Ray Maota) MEDIA CONTACTS • Brand South Africa  +27 11 483 0122 • Nomaxabiso Majokweni  BUSA: CEO  +27 11 784 8000 • National Treasury  +27 12 315 5111 RELATED ARTICLES • More to SA than Nelson Mandela • Media tour boosts China-Africa link • SA becomes business tourism hub • South Africa: open for businessJournalists from the Middle East have been introduced to the constructive role South African businesses play in reaching the country’s economic growth, development and transformation goals.They have also learned how the National Treasury is responsible for managing South Africa’s government finances.Their visit to Business Unity South Africa (Busa) and the National Treasury were part of Brand South Africa’s aim to expose the international press to South Africa’s business environment, as well as its regulatory and policy systems.Mahmood Saberi of Gulf News, a Dubai publication, said: “I’m here to basically see how trade relations and investments can be improved between the United Arab Emirates and South Africa.”Saberi also said he was looking forward to seeing scenic spots of South Africa like Table Mountain.Saberi is joined by Peter Smith, of Dubai Gulf Business; Hala Saqqa, a senior account executive at Hill and Knowlton Strategies in Dubai; Roger Romanos; the senior editor at Al-Iktissad Wal-Aamal Group; and Bahaa Alawam, a Syrian journalist.Uncertainty of growth in the worldThe wellbeing of Europe’s economic system and the US economy are just some factors that will determine whether South Africa reaches its projected 3.3% budget deficit by 2014.Lungisa Fuzile, the director-general of the National Treasury, said: “Domestically, we need to invest in things that are growth-intensive such as infrastructure, which will make business transactions easier. These, for example, are ports and roads.“Regulatory regimes in different sectors also need to be revised so there is no barrier to entry for people to do business.”Externally there had to be a South African presence in markets with higher growth potential, and seven of these markets were in Africa.Surviving 2009 recessionSouth Africa’s financial system showed great resilience during the 2009 world economic crunch. Fuzile said: “In South Africa, we have a four-pillar model, meaning we have four big banks and other smaller ones.“The fact that we survived the recession in 2009 is largely due to the fact that these banks’ dependence on foreign funding is limited.”Another factor that led to South Africa withstanding the recession was the National Credit Act, which made seeking credit harder. “Although there was talk that this Act was too restrictive, recent readings in terms of credit extension ratings show that they are rising, so this Act is not too restrictive,” said Fuzile.Wal-Mart and Massmart dealThe Wal-Mart–Massmart merger was recently approved by the Competition Tribunal.The deal concludes the R16.5-billion (US$22-million) cash offer by Wal-Mart to acquire 51% of Massmart at R148 ($18) per Massmart share – a smaller stake than the initial 100% offer made in September 2011, but one that would see Massmart retain its listing on the Johannesburg stock exchange, the JSE.Fuzile said: “The message that was being sent by the conclusion of this deal by the tribunal is that of free trade because we do not want to restrict entry to our markets for others hence we also feel the brunt later.”The Tribunal said: “Wal-Mart does not compete with Massmart in South Africa and its only presence in the country is a small procurement arm that sources local products for its stores globally.“The merging parties contend that the merger will indeed be good for competition by bringing lower prices and additional choice to South African consumers. We accept that this is a likely outcome of the merger based on Wal-Mart’s history in bringing about lower prices.”The voice of business in SABusa acts as the representative of South African business views on the continent and internationally. It interacts with the government in terms of policy and what will make being in business easier in South Africa.Its objectives include: promoting broad-based black economic empowerment, advancing and promoting initiatives aimed at job creation, labour law amendments and the alleviation of poverty, and enabling business to play a meaningful strategic role in South Africa’s overall development.Nomaxabiso Majokweni, Busa’s chief executive officer, said: “Being in business in South Africa is easy, starting with the registering of your business, which takes nearly a month depending on the complexity of your business.”The 2011-2012 World Economic Forum Global Competitiveness Report indicates that South Africa is at position 50 and has the most competitive economy in sub-Saharan Africa.Majokweni said: “Africa is still a huge market for South Africa but we need South African businesses to invest in Africa instead of just importing and exporting.”last_img read more

Blitzbokke third as NZ win Sevens in SA

first_img10 December 2012South Africa lost just a single game at the Nelson Mandela Bay Sevens tournament in Port Elizabeth over the weekend – a record not bettered by any other side – but it came at the wrong time and the Blitzbokke had to settle for third place in the third leg of the HSBC World Sevens Series.After a sub-standard showing in Dubai, where the team missed out on the Cup quarterfinals, they lifted themselves to produce some excellent rugby, much to the delight of the home fans.Captain Kyle Brown and Branco du Preez were sidelined by injury, but Frankie Horne stepped up and did a solid job leading the side, while Cheslin Kolbe, playing in place of Du Preez, grew in stature as the tournament progressed and ultimately played a starring role in the playoff win that secured the Blitzbokke third place.A big differenceThe return of Cecil Afrika, although he was clearly not yet back to full fitness, also made a big difference as he pulled the strings and gave the South African team width on attack.After a superb opening day in which they won all their pool games, South Africa defeated the USA in the Cup quarterfinals, but then fell 12-5 to New Zealand in the semi-finals.“It was very disappointing,” Springbok Sevens coach Paul Treu admitted afterwards. “We had our chances and so had they, with the only difference [being] that New Zealand took the one that mattered.”‘They gave their all’Treu, though, must have been impressed by the wholehearted effort of his charges and he had good things to say about them. “I cannot fault the commitment of my players, they gave their all,” he said.“It is a pity we could not do it for the crowd, who supported us so well. At least we finished strongly and gave a good performance in the bronze final.”On the first day of competition, Saturday, the South African team got itself off to a flying start with a very impressive 29-7 victory over Samoa, who had won the Dubai Sevens a week earlier. They followed that up with a 12-5 win over France and a 17-7 defeat of Australia to finish the day top of Pool A.Only Portugal in a much easier Pool D, which also included the USA, Canada and Zimbabwe, managed to match South Africa’s perfect record.QuarterfinalsThe Blitzbokke duly dealt with the USA in the Cup quarterfinals, easing to a 17-7 win, while Argentina shocked Fiji 15-12, France edged Portugal 10-7, and New Zealand thrashed Wales 35-5.That set up a clash between the Kiwis and the Blitzbokke, with France taking on Argentina in the second semi-final.South Africa were first on the board against the New Zealanders, but frittered away some chances and a late try by the men in black sealed a 12-5 win for Gordon Tietjens’ charges.Extra timeFrance, meanwhile, needed extra time to sneak by Argentina 10-7. The lengthy match took a lot out of both teams and it showed in the last round of matches.The Blitzbokke kept a tired Argentina scoreless in the playoff for third place, running in five tries to stroll to a 35-0 win. Kolbe was the star of the show, dotting down three times, as he showed a good eye for a gap and excellent acceleration and speed.New Zealand, too, had an easy time of it, thumping the French 47-12 to become the third winners in the three tournaments held so far in the 2012/13 Series, following Fiji’s win in Australia and Samoa’s victory in the United Arab Emirates.It was a fourth victory in succession for the Kiwis in the South African leg of the HSBC Sevens World Series; they also claimed the title in George in 2009 and 2010.Would you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?
