Cam Clark shows up speedster Rieko Ioane with unbelievable chase

first_imgMonday May 7, 2018 Cam Clark shows up speedster Rieko Ioane with unbelievable chase The Blues held on for their third win of the season as they edged the Waratahs 24-21 in Sydney on Saturday, with Rieko Ioane getting on the board just six minutes in. The speedster looked set for a second try shortly afterwards but was hauled in by an incredible tackle from Cameron Clark. As the Waratahs built pressure at the other end, a quick intercept and offload from Augustine Pulu gave superstar All Black Ioane the chance to streak away downfield and put the visitors ahead 14-0.Waratahs winger Clark, son of commentator Greg Clark, wouldn’t allow that to happen though as he chased admirably and somehow pulled off one of the best try-saving tackles this year.The sprint and extended dive tripped up Ioane just meters short, and although he got up and crossed the try line, it was done illegally, as the tackle had been completed in the eyes of referee Jaco Peyper, who awarded the penalty to the Waratahs.As Peyper explained, Ioane’s legs had touched the ground while Clark was holding him, therefore meaning that he would have had to release the ball before getting up and continuing to play.“Tackle’s complete, you have to release the ball,” he said to Ioane, before explaining to unhappy scrumhalf Pulu: “Remember, as he holds on to him, they’re going to ground. Then he has to release it at some point.”It was a near thing, but as replays showed, the correct call and sharp refereeing to match the sensational effort from Australian Sevens flyer Clark.Despite the win, the Blues are still at the bottom of the New Zealand conference, while the Waratahs still top the Australian conference. The Lions still top of the South African conference.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error See it to Believe it Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Experts explain what actually happens… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Leigh Halfpenny makes yet another… 26 WEEKS AGO Parisse alley-oop magic sets up brilliant… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

SA’s new crime-fighting TV show

first_img“We are confident that this partnership will yield tremendous results as we fight crime together with communities.” Mthethwa said that improving the safety of people in their homes, communities, places of work and entertainment would lead to a better quality of life for all South Africans. “Crime undermines our efforts aimed at defeating poverty, even as poverty contributes in various ways in creating conditions that breed crime,” the minister said. 13 October 2009 The SABC said it was pleased to continue to be part of helping the police to combat crime. “This also provides the public broadcaster with a platform to execute its role as a watchdog for the South African community,” said South African Broadcasting Corporation acting CEO Gab Mampone. Better quality of life A total of 300 episodes of Police File have been screened since 2003. Deputy Police Minister Fikile Mbalula said the true measure of success would be based on how When Duty Calls contributed to the decrease in crime, and not just in the number of viewers. “It should become a beacon of hope to vulnerable persons who have not seen their loved ones, while instilling fear in criminals. This is the kind of reflection we would like to see,” he said.center_img Beacon of hope When Duty Calls builds on the success of Police File, a former programme that yielded impressive results in finding missing persons and locating and arresting criminals. Police Minister Nathi Mthethwa has launched When Duty Calls, a new television programme that gives information on wanted and missing persons and urges the public to come forward with information about crimes. National Police Commissioner Bheki Cele hoped the nation would respond to the programme. “As the police, our fundamental role is to maintain, restore public order, serve and protect our communities in our operations of fiercely fighting and combating crime,” he said. “In addition, the programme will provide the public with feedback on police crime investigation successes,” Mthethwa said at the launch of the programme in Krugersdorp in Gauteng’s West Rand last week.

Cape Town nabs first World Travel Market Africa

first_imgCape Town has put on its best autumn dress for the World Travel Market Africa, being held in the city for the first time this weekend. By Lorraine Kearney2 May 2014Tourism is big business, which means tourism conferences and exhibitions are also big business. It is at these that tour companies, destinations, and others in the industry market themselves to the world.The Tourism Indaba has been held in Durban each year since Pa fell off the bus. The next one runs from 10 to 12 May. And now there is a new kid on the block: the first World Travel Market Africa (WTM) is being held in Cape Town on 1 and 2 May, rounding off Africa Travel Week. It was preceded by IBTM Africa (Incentives, Business Travel & Meetings) and ILTM Africa (International Luxury Travel Market), all at the Cape Town International Convention Centre.Of course, the main WTM takes place in London annually. It’s a business-to-business event, and there are a bunch of people filling the huge exhibition hall at the CTICC. WTM Africa has exhibitors from 42 countries in Africa, America, Asia, the Middle East, Europe and the Mediterranean. Product categories range from the accommodation sector to the airline industry, destination management companies and many more, say the organisers.Local trends such as Mandela pilgrimage tourism, online and mobile developments that enable consumers to bypass traditional distribution methods, and responsible tourism are being explored.According to the UNWTO World Tourism Barometer, demand for international tourism in 2013 was strongest for destinations in Africa (+6%), as well as Asia and the Pacific (+6%). Africa attracted 3-million additional arrivals, reaching a new record of 56-million, reflecting the on-going rebound in North Africa (+6%) and the sustained growth of Sub-Saharan destinations (+5%). This year, regional prospects are strongest for Asia and the Pacific (+5% to +6%) and Africa (+4% to +6%).The show has brought a vacation vibe to the Foreshore. “You don’t need a holiday, you need Cape Town” is the Cape Town Tourism slogan. And perhaps the travel industry does not need to go anywhere else: between Cape Town and Durban, WTM Africa and Tourism Indaba, with a week in-between to enjoy the sights and sounds of the rainbow nation, this is a good place to be.last_img read more

Nest, The iPod Of Smart Home Tech, Preps Consumers For The Future

first_imgjohn paul titlow Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting How Intelligent Data Addresses the Chasm in Cloud Related Posts Serverless Backups: Viable Data Protection for …center_img Cloud Hosting for WordPress: Why Everyone is Mo… Nest is doing very well. The company that makes the eponymous smart thermostat just closed on an $80 million round of funding, according to GigaOm. It’s now shipping 40,000 to 50,000 thermostats every month, which is apparently enough to win the confidence of Google Ventures and Venrock. Call it the iPod of smart home technology. And not just because the Nest was literally conceived by the man who led the iPod team at Apple for several years. Like the iPod, the Nest thermostat is a disruptive technology planting itself into the lives of everyday, non-techie consumers, where it will slowly sprout into something much bigger. With the iPod, Apple popularized the digital music players among the masses and paved the way for a series of other, even more important devices. The Nest is about to do the same thing. For those who aren’t familiar with it, the Nest is an Internet-connected thermostat that purports to learn its owners habits and configure the house’s cooling and heating patterns more intelligently. The result is a more energy efficient home and, as the company proudly proclaims, lower utility bills. It’s not the first smart energy management product to hit the market, but it is among the sleekiest and easiest for everyday consumers to understand and use. Sound familiar? Home automation. Wi-Fi-connected appliances. The Internet of things. These tech industry buzz concepts can get the crowd going at conferences like Le Web and the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), but ask your mother or a random colleague what they think about them. Normal people don’t even know what this stuff is. But soon they will.  Plenty of startups, cable companies and telcos are gearing up for the smart home revolution, prepping their own remote lighting control, video security and energy automation features. Communications companies from Comcast to Verizon have begun offering these services as an add-on to customers’ existing cable and phone bills. As cool as smart thermostats, security cams and remote controlled door locks are, they’re only the beginning. The list of Wi-Fi connected household appliances keeps growing. An Internet-capable toaster or washing machine might seem silly, but the super-connected homes of the future will be much more energy efficient, easier to manage and secure. Soon we’ll move onto automated cat feeders and plant watering systems – and from there we’ll graduate to Jetsons-style domestic robots.If any one product is poised to popularize smart home tech, it’s the Nest. Its clean design, easy installation and availability from big retailers give it a prime position from which to plant a ticking, hyper-futuristic time bomb.

While on that topic, Webber seemed to criticize some of his former teammates, who he says exaggerated their importance in the film. “My whole thing has been it’s always been about us five,” he told Patrick. “And so when one guy has a million highlights in there of himself like he was the leading scorer, like when the stories are all after and embellished it’s just a little hard for me.
