Boxing in the Rio 2016 Olympics lasted throughout the 16 days of competition from August 5-21 and was marked by both exciting boxing and controversies.There were complaints about the judging, and two fights in particular – a bantamweight contest between Michael Conlan of Ireland and Vladimir Nikitin from Russia, and a heavyweight contest between Eveny Tishchenko from Russia and Vassiliy Levit from Kazakhstan – drew the ire of thousands of boxing fans.In the bantamweight contest, Nikitin was awarded the verdict, which took him into the finals, and this has been challenged far and wide as a bad call. The widespread opinion is that Conlan won, and this belief was heightened when Nikitin was unable to fight again because of injuries to his face and lost by walk-over in the semi-final bout.This was a particularly bad situation as Conlan gave the middle finger salute to the judges before leaving the ring, and after he left, he launched a broadside against the International Boxing Association (AIBA), the ruling body and the officials, calling them corrupt. He announced afterwards that he would be turning professional, but the last has certainly not been heard of this because it is quite likely be brought up on various charges for his behaviour.In the heavyweight contest, Tishchenko went on to win the gold medal, but public opinion was that it should have been Levit in the finals. In response, the head of AIBA, Dr Ching-Kuo Wu, pointed to the fact that in over 239 bouts at the time of the controversy, “only a handful of bouts” had been targeted for criticism.Action was, however, taken against some officials. Some referees/judges were excluded from the competition shortly afterwards and reports are that they were sent home. In addition, and this was a major development, the executive director of AIBA, Karim Bouzidi, was removed from his duties at the Olympics and as executive director. He is to be assigned to another position in AIBA, it was announced.BEST SHOWApart from these few particularly bad days, the boxing competition was keen and exciting and some of the best boxing at the Olympics was put on show. The new scoring system, which is based on the 10-point must scoring system, as in professional boxing, was used, and was very successful.Boxing fans were treated to very competitive bouts throughout the 16 days, and the boxing venue, Rio Centro Pavilion 6, was always packed with wildly cheering spectators. The addition of professionals was not a very successful move as only three made it to Rio, and they were all defeated early in competition.At the end of the day, the records will show that medals were won by 19 countries. Uzbekistan pulled off a surprise by topping the medals table with three gold, two silver, and two bronze. Cuba followed with three gold and three bronze. Russia, France, and Colombia were the other gold medal winners in the male section of competition.In the female section, Claressa Shields from the USA successfully defended her middleweight title, as did Nicola Adams from Britain, the flyweight champion. The new lightweight female champion is Estelle Mossely from France. Shields was again the only gold medal winner in boxing for the USA.Shields was named the Outstanding Female Boxer of the tournament, and light-flyweight Hasanboy Dusmatov from Uzbekistan was named the Outstanding Male Boxer. They were both awarded the respective Val Baker trophies.

The World Health Organization Regional Director for Africa, Dr. Matshidiso Moeti, has charged African leaders to invest more in the health sector of their respective countries in order to adequately combat malaria, which claimed hundreds of thousands of lives on the continent annually, and other diseases.Dr. Moeti said increased malaria funding is needed in order to save lives and further expand access to its prevention, diagnosis and treatment services in the Region. “This is even more critical given the urgent need to tackle malaria drug-resistance and other emerging threats, such as mosquito resistance to insecticides,” she said.Her comments were contained in a statement read on her behalf by WHO Country representative to Liberia, Dr. Alex Gasasira, at the occasion of the observance of World Malaria Day on Saturday in Monrovia. The day was commemorated under the theme, “Invest in the future. Defeat malaria”. The theme highlights the need for increased financial and human resources, commodities and infrastructural investments to control and eliminate this life-threatening disease.Dr. Moeti, a Botswana native, noted that limited access to and underutilization of available malaria interventions within countries are the major causes of excessively high burdens of malaria cases and deaths.“For instance in 2013, 33% of households in the Region still did not own even a single LLIN and only 29% of households had enough LLINs for all household members,” she said, calling on leaders and partners across the continent to do more.As we commemorate World Malaria Day, she said, “I call upon countries and stakeholders to focus on targeting available resources at places where the burden of malaria is highest and at the people and groups who face the highest risk of malaria.”She indicated that most malaria prone countries, one of which is Liberia, are still far from achieving universal coverage of these malaria interventions.“I would also like to urge countries and stakeholders to invest in national and community systems in order to test every suspected case of malaria before administering treatment. All confirmed malaria cases should also be documented and reported in order to determine the geographic areas where malaria is most prevalent and the population groups that are at the greatest risk.”She indicated that there is a global consensus to reduce malaria mortality and incidence rates by at least 90% by 2030 and eliminate malaria. Though the proportion of people protected by at least one malaria control method has increased in recent years, total funding will only match needs if international donors and partners and national governments prioritize further investments in malaria control, the WHO boss said.Dr. Moeti noted that her office will continue to provide evidence-based guidance to all countries and stakeholders to better target malaria interventions, strengthen national health systems towards universal health coverage, and accelerate progress towards a malaria-free Africa.Meanwhile, according to health experts, malaria can be prevented or controlled through the use of long LLINs, indoor residual spraying (IRS), preventive therapies for pregnant women, children under five and infants, as well as quality-assured diagnostic testing and treatment.According to WHO statistics, in 2013, an estimated 163 million cases of malaria occurred in the African Region, of which approximately 528 000 resulted to deaths. Between 2000 and 2013, the estimated number of malaria cases in the at risk population declined by 34% while malaria death rates declined by 54% in the African Region. In spite of this progress, countries in the Region are not likely to attain the World Health Assembly target of a 75% reduction in malaria cases and deaths by 2015.The Botswana native (Dr. Moeti) was appointed by the WHO’s Executive Board early this replaced Dr. Luis Gomes Sambo who completed his second 5-year term early this year. The latter received huge criticisms for his handling of the Ebola Virus Disease outbreak from the initial, who lead to the slow or belated response from the global health, body (WHO) after thousands of people had died.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)

28 September 2015It’s a honourable gift [to South Africa] to play your part wherever you are, said Katie Mohamed, a representative of Brand South Africa on Heritage Day during an event to honour women.Owami Women in partnership with Brand South Africa got together on 24 September 2015 in Lonehill, Johannesburg to celebrate women in various sectors who play their part in preserving the country’s heritage.According to Bridget Nkuna, founder of Owami Women’s Deep and Meaningful Conversation, the importance of honouring women stems from the intent that both Owami Women and Play Your Part should award recognition to ordinary people who do their bit to contribute towards a better South Africa. Brand South Africa partnered with Owami Women to award women who play their part in preserving the country’s heritage. (Image: Melissa Javan)“There are many unsung heroes who in their daily lives give of themselves in this country. Owami Women has 2300 members of which them have an area of life towards which they work and contribute,” said Nkuna.“We have many stories and testimonies of excellence amongst our members. The six women that we chose to recognise in this time are women whose contribution we have tracked and therefore have vetted the authenticity of their work.”Guests at the event wore traditional attire to celebrate Heritage Month. (Image: Melissa Javan)Owami Women’s Deep and Meaningful Conversation is an initiative that enables women to share their stories and lend support to one another on a public platform. “It will do more than inspire viewership. It will encourage women to speak up and share their voice,” its website reads.Through its flagship programme ‘Play Your Part’, Brand South Africa recognises and celebrates South Africans who continue to make a positive contribution in their communities. Brand South Africa therefore recognises the positive impact that Owami Women has played in addressing women’s issues in the country ranging from social to business matters.Make a small contribution The key message from Katie Mohamed of Brand South Africa is that people should make a small difference wherever they are. “Ask yourself: ‘What difference can I make at my school, my home or at work?’ (Image: Brand South Africa)Nkuna said the awards “is the start of bigger things to come.”She added that South Africans have the responsibility to play their part. “It’s not good enough to complain.” She also encouraged the guests to adopt a girl. Nkuna said it is important that mentorship is done.Mohamed’s message was that a small positive contribution could be made to make a difference in the country. “Ask yourself: ‘What difference can I make at my school, my home or at work?’ Everyone can play their part in South Africa.”She recalled the story of a grandmother she had met who started a safe haven at her home. “The kids would come to her home from school, eat and do their homework there.”“We need to love each other. Make a difference [in our area],” Mohamed said. Guests at the event, Rebecca McNally, a representative of Miss Earth South Africa, and Bianca Williams of the organisation Campaign for Girls, are also Play Your Part ambassadors. (Image by: Melissa Javan)The award winnersSithembile Ntombela, acting chief marketing officer of Brand South Africa, said: “It’s a great honour to be recognised and acknowledged as one of the women playing their part and I’d like to thank Owami Women for this award.” Katie Mohamed (middle) took the award on behalf of Sithembile Ntombela of Brand South Africa, who unfortunately could not attend the event. On Mohamed’s left is colleague Boitumelo Mpete and Bridget Nkuna (on right) of Owami Women. (Image: Brand South Africa)Nawaal Nolwesi Mdluli, chief executive officer and founding editor of Kwenta Media said she is quite humbled. “It’s quite exciting, being given this recognition.“I have to grow more legs to enable me to keep growing. Our Essays of Africa magazine should keep on moving women. I realise you have to move in a way that you empower and bring change. It’s my responsibility to be an agent of sustainable change,” she said.Motlalepule Mokhine, founder of the financial firm Temogo Consulting, said she had not expected the special recognition. “When you are doing something with passion and purpose, you don’t expect this. We are very excited about it though.“I believe that the world would be a better place if everyone does their part. Collectively we can bring change to our country,” said Mokhine. Nothando Baloyi (middle) of Lady T VIP Protection company is recognised because her business succeeds in a male dominated industry. Here with Baloyi is Boitumelo Mpete of Brand South Africa and Bridget Nkuna (on right) of Owami Women.

15 March 2016South Africa is a steady, well-functioning economy – that is the message the National Treasury conveyed to international investors during a roadshow to London, Boston and New York last week.Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan headed the group of business leaders, three labour federations and senior officials from the National Treasury and the South African Reserve Bank to engage with international investors after the tabling of the 2016 Budget.See what the minister said:The roadshow was also a means to provide updates on the latest economic developments in the country and plans for the medium term. Meetings were held with over 250 investors, some with significant exposure to South Africa. Among the issues raised by the investors were:Fiscal risks and strains in balance sheets of state-owned companies;Recent developments on sovereign credit ratings;Slow economic growth;Issues relating to business and investment confidence;Regulatory clarity, labour and monetary policy andThe political environment.One unified voice“Our main message to the investors was that as a resilient nation, South Africa has the potential to overcome its immediate challenges,” the Treasury said. “What is required is for (the) government, labour and business to work together on concrete steps and actions that will be taken to lift economic growth.“The world economic outlook is uncertain and it is crucial that the country be seen to be united and focused on tackling its socio-economic challenges.”The next few months would be critical, the Treasury said, as it mapped a path for higher economic growth, to preserve the investment grade rating, and address poverty, unemployment and inequality.Source: Department of Treasury

8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… After a month’s head start of Internet Explorer 10 for Windows 8 users, Windows 7 users may be seeing their own IE 10 release as early as Tuesday, if rumors from Chinese blog iFanr have any validity. But will Microsoft’s staggered release plan just cause more headaches for Web developers?iFanr appears to cite Microsoft’s IE Director of Marketing Roger Capriotti as the source for the named date, though Microsoft is not confirming or denying what it terms rumors and speculation. The date for the Preview Release would sync up to earlier reports of a Windows 7 version coming out in mid-November, after disappointing Web users and developers with a missing IE 10 for Windows 7 when the Windows 8 operating system rolled out with IE 10 on Oct. 26.It will be interesting to see how IE 10 will be worked for the Windows 7 platform. Its interface and functionality has most definitely shot for the tablet target – a target that Microsoft very much wants to hit as it seeks to shove its way into the burgeoning tablet market.Given that Windows 7 users are likely not going to be using it on tablets, a lot of that functionality will probably be absent in IE 10 for Windows 7. What will be included is the controversial Do Not Track feature, likely activated by default. Do Not Track has done little more than poke the advertisers’ hornet nest with a sharp stick.Do Not Track?The Digital Advertising Alliance has already announced that it will not honor Do Not Track in IE 10 because, its rationale goes, there’s no way website developers can tell whether Do Not Track was actually turned on by the user or by Microsoft. Microsoft’s approach to Do Not Track has ticked off a lot of people, including Apache Web Server developer Roy Fielding who actually submitted a patch to Apache that would also ignore IE 10’s Do Not Track feature back in September.Since there aren’t that many Windows 8 machines out yet, there hasn’t been a lot of squabbling about IE 10 yet. But given that Microsoft’s Auto Update feature will eventually upgrade almost all IE users to IE 10 on Windows 7, that’s about to change. Advertisers will no doubt raise a stink again and those users who would really like Do Not Track to be honored will start getting loud about the problem once the final version of IE 10 hits the Web.End of The Line For IE on Windows XP And VistaUsers of Windows XP and Vista won’t have to worry about any of this, by the way: Microsoft is not planning on IE 10 supporting those versions of Windows. IE 9 is as high as Vista can go and IE 8 is the upper limit for XP users.Cross-browser web development has always been less than fun for Web developers, who have to choose between taking advantage of the latest browser capabilities and making their sites viewable for as many incoming browsers as possible. And then they have to choose which browsers to target. The latest versions of Safari, Chrome, Firefox and IE are the default bets – as well as key older versions that still retain big user bases.With the deliberate freeze of IE at version 8 on Windows XP and v9 on Vista machines, Microsoft may be making cross-browser development just a little bit harder. According to StatCounter, 34.23% of machines in the world were running Windows XP and Vista in October 2012, compared to 52.93% running Windows 7. That’s a lot of machines that will be stuck in increasing obsolencense.Clearly, Microsoft’s plan is to encourage users to upgrade those older machines to at least Windows 7, but Web developers will be stuck in the middle of this widening gap between old and new until the market share for the older machines drops into the neighborhood of “we-don’t-care-anymore” percent.Microsoft has clearly decided that IE 10 is where the line of demarcation will be drawn, and Web developers will just have to cope. How long the pain will last will be up to millions of users’ stubborn insistence on holding on to older versions of Windows.Image courtesy of Microsoft. Related Posts Tags:#Browsers brian proffitt
