The Nelson Leafs just lost another Murdoch Division battle Saturday night.Tuesday at the NDCC Arena it doesn’t get any easier as the Murdoch leading Castlegar Rebels, a team the Leafs have yet to defeat this season, invades the Heritage City for a mid-week Kootenay International Junior Hockey League clash.The Rebels, losers of just six games this season, hold a commanding 21-point advantage over the Green and White.Game time is 7 p.m.
Matt Hughes formerly of Kamloops is the new skipper of the Good Ship Leafs.Hughes was officially welcomed to the position today by Nelson interim society president Larry Martel.”All his references spoke very highly of Matt and said we would be foolish not to hire him as coach,” Martel told The Nelson Daily.Hughes, originally from Kamloops, comes to the Heritage City franchise from the Okanagan Hockey School.Hughes also was coach of Dawson Creek of the North American Hockey League where he coached former Leaf Troy Petrich, Grande Prairie of the Alberta Hockey League and was coach of the year when he skippered Columbia Valley Rockies of the Kootenay International Junior League. Hughes, who also assumes the general manager duties with the Leafs, will begin work on the job in the next few weeks.Leafs find coach to replace Frank MaidaThe Nelson Leafs have found their man to replace former coach Frank Maida.Leafs interim society president Larry Martel told The Nelson Daily Thursday morning the unanimous decision was made during a board meeting Wednesday evening.”There were 28 very good candidates from all over North America that applied,” Martel said. “We interviewed eight the committee felt were the very best.”At the May 21 board meeting the committee made the recommendation and th board approved the coach selection for 2014.”Martel said he is trying to get in contact with the successful candidate today before making the official announcement.”The level of coaches applying was very high and the choice wasn’t an easy one but in the end the final choice was unanimous.”The Nelson Leafs completed a successful 2013-14 campaign which the club hosted the Cyclone Taylor Cup.
Fianna Fáil Spokesperson on Agriculture Charlie McConalogue TD has called on meat processors to remove legal threats and agree to address key outstanding issues in reconvened beef talks.“The previous round of talks were unsuccessful due to the failure of meat processors to properly address a number of key issues in the beef supply chain and they must now indicate a willingness to address these in order to resolve the current beef crisis”, said Deputy McConalogue.“Issues such as the 30 months age limit, the four movement rule, and the 70-day residency requirement must be up for negotiation if farmers are to accept that meat-processors are serious about addressing their concerns. “I welcome the unanimous support at today’s meeting of the Oireachtas Agriculture Committee for Fianna Fáil’s proposal mandating the Minister for Agriculture to seek the immediate resumption of talks and calling for meat processors to demonstrate a willingness to address these issues as part of a renewed talks process. The Committee also unanimously agreed the necessity for retailers to be included in talks.“Meat processors must accept that they have demonstrated no reasonable basis for the continuation of these unjustified requirements.“The 30 month age limit puts undue pressure on farmers to sell cattle and contributes to a spike in supply at the back end of each year when a significant number of animals reach the 30 month threshold.“With regard to the four movement rule, meat processors have not demonstrated any rationale as to why animals that have moved more than four times between quality assured farms should not be paid the quality assurance bonus. “The 70 day residency requirement puts an unfair restriction on famers selling their animals through marts before slaughter, removing an outlet for smaller farmers in particular to generate competition for their finished animals.“Meat processors need to realise that it is by agreeing to address these key issues in resumed talks that the current beef crisis can be addressed. They must now remove any legal threats to farmers and enable meaningful talks to proceed,” concluded Deputy McConalogue.Meat processors must remove legal threats and agree to address key issues – McConalogue was last modified: September 5th, 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)
The announcement of the 2010 matric results by Basic Education Minister, Angie Motshekga today has indicated an improvement on 2009’s performance, with the Minister describing the results as a “remarkable achievement”.South African’s support for the Class of 2010 has been phenomenal and these positive results are indicative of the communities’ spirit of Ubuntu. People opened up their homes to learners, retired teachers gave of their time, businesses offered resources and non-profit organisations facilitated opportunities for learner support.The teachers’ strike, following the suspension of teaching during the 2010 World Cup, with slightly less schooling time, undoubtedly had an effect on results. The Minister admits that it was possible that the public sector dispute might have robbed the department of its targeted 70% pass rate.“On a global level, the South Africa education system performs poorly compared to those in countries at a similar stage of development, such as Brazil, Russia, Argentina and Mexico. It is particularly worrying that the Global Competitiveness Index of the World Economic Forum (WEF) places South Africa in the bottom two performing countries with regard to the quality of maths and science education”, Matola points out. The importance of education was underlined last year at the WEF annual meeting which held a session specifically focusing on this issue. In its summary, it states that the many problems that plague the world, from poverty to global security, could be solved by better access to quality education.What is needed, says the WEF, is a partnership between the public and private sectors to develop a new vision for education that will meet the needs of the ever-changing job market. To this end, Brand South Africa and the Department of Basic Education hosted a special session with private sector companies at the end of November 2010 to magnify the need for an integrated approach to educational delivery. Matola continues, “Brand South Africa recognises this and is driving a call to make education a societal issue. This joint ownership of education is in the spirit, too, of Ubuntu – one of collective support and engagement beyond the bounds of family, friends and colleagues to a broader society”.The matric results, achieved under difficult conditions, re-affirm that South Africans, as always, are able to find creative solutions”, concludes Matola.ends

About the authorFreddie TaylorShare the loveHave your say Burnley boss Dyche open to rotating squad for Norwichby Freddie Taylora month agoSend to a friendShare the loveBurnley boss Sean Dyche will likely rotate his squad for Saturday’s clash with Norwich City at Turf Moor.Substitute Jeff Hendrick popped up to score a stoppage-time equaliser against Brighton on Saturday.Matej Vydra and Jay Rodriguez also impressed off the bench, and Dyche says he might give his fringe players a chance when the Canaries come to town.”All three of them affected the game so I was pleased with that,” the Burnley boss said.”I’ve told them there will be certain players (rotated), obviously defenders it doesn’t change as much, but you have to keep everyone involved.”I think that’s the important thing here, we’ve always worked on a group mentality, so I want to keep everyone’s mind on it.”
TORONTO – Rogers Communications Inc. expects to ramp up marketing for its new Ignite TV service through the second half of this year as its “connected home” strategy builds momentum, chief executive Joe Natale said Thursday.“Don’t look at Ignite as sort of a big bang or one-day wonder. It’s really meant to be a rolling campaign that will build over time,” Natale told analysts in a conference call after Rogers announced strong second-quarter results.Natale said he believes the connected home concept — including voice-activated control of home security, lighting, temperature control and entertainment — represents a shift “similar to the smartphone revolution.”The company has started a phased “awareness and advertising” campaign for Ignite TV, following a limited roll-out during the second quarter, he said.Natale said Rogers Cable has a competitive advantage because its entire residential footprint is capable of delivering internet data speeds of one gigabit per second — at the high end of current home technology.He added that he company wasn’t hurt by recent promotional activity by its main competitor, Bell Canada.In June, Bell was offering a gigabit-per-second home internet package with unlimited data for $79.95 in parts of Toronto where its fibre-to-the-home service is available.About the same time, Rogers dropped the monthly cost for its gigabit service for new customers to $79.99 for 12 months, from $152.99, across its full network in Ontario, New Brunswick and Newfoundland.“I’m not going to get into a sort of details of our marketing strategy. But I would say this to you, that we’re getting success across our footprint,” Natale said.The number of Rogers internet subscribers grew 23,000 by in the three months ended June 30, the most for a second quarter since 2005, he said.Natale said the company’s wireless division — which accounts for more than half of overall revenue for Rogers — also did well with seven per cent year-over-year revenue growth.During the quarter, Rogers says it added 122,000 net new postpaid wireless subscribers, the most for a second quarter in nine years. Postpaid churn for wireless customers declined to 1.01 per cent, the best quarter in nearly a decade.Net income for the quarter rose two per cent to $538 million or $1.04 per diluted share, up from $528 million or $1.02 per diluted share a year ago.On an adjusted basis, Rogers earned $1.07 per diluted share — above the analyst estimate of $1.05 per share for the quarter, according to Thomson Reuters Eikon.Overall revenue was in line with estimates at $3.76 billion, up from $3.62 billion.Companies in this story: (TSX:RCI.B, TSX:BCE)
Former Buckeye running back and 1995 Heisman Trophy winner Eddie George will be inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame. The announcement was made Monday on ESPN’s “College Football Live.” The rest of the class, which will include 14 former players and two former coaches, will be announced today. Former Michigan coach Lloyd Carr would be inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame, The Detroit Free Press reported Saturday. Carr became Michigan’s coach in 1995, after serving seven seasons as the Wolverines’ defensive coordinator. During his career at Ohio State, George was 1-3 against Michigan. Carr was 6-7 against the Buckeyes during his head-coaching tenure at Michigan. Other Buckeyes on the ballot who could be inducted include former offensive tackle Dave Foley and former fullback Jim Otis. Both are former first-team All-Americans and were members of OSU’s 1968 team that went undefeated and earned the 1968 National Championship. Foley started at offensive tackle for three years under coach Woody Hayes, and was selected in the first round of the 1969 NFL draft by the New York Jets. Otis led the team in rushing during all three of his seasons with the Buckeyes. He spent nine seasons in the NFL and was selected to the Pro Bowl in 1975 as a member of the St. Louis Cardinals. Since George won the Heisman trophy in 1995, only former OSU quarterback Troy Smith has won the award while wearing Scarlet and Gray, in 2006. Before George, running back Archie Griffin was the last Buckeye to win the Heisman trophy, earning the award in 1974 and 1975. In 1995, George set records for most rushing yards in a season (1,927), most games with at least 100 yards (12) and most rushing yards in a game (314) during a 41-3 victory against Illinois. George’s No. 27 is retired at OSU. Attempts for comment from George were not immediately returned.
