Brown’s Town need a win against Seaview Gardens today to qualify for the mid-season final in the Charley’s JB Rum/Kingston and St Andrew Football Association (KSAFA) Super League.Both teams will meet in the opening game of a double header at Constant Spring Complex today, starting at 6 p.m.In the second of the double-header, Real Mona face Maverley/Hughenden, starting at 8 p.m.The first game is of high interest as Zone B leaders Brown’s Town will be in the hunt for maximum three points to advance to next Friday’s mid-season final where they will face Maverley/Hughenden.Brown’s Town lead the zone with 13 points. They are followed by Rae Town (8) and Santos (7).The east Kingston-based Brown’s Town are in pole position. They could lose against Seaview and still contest the final. Rae Town’s game against Maverley/Hughenden ended prematurely last week after a stabbing incident with the teams locked at 1-1. KSAFA are yet to issue a ruling on that match.Santos could move onto the final if they win their two remaining games but other results go their way.The Browns Town camp are in a positive mood ahead of tonight’s game.”We will be very serious about this game as we want to be in the final,” coach of Brown’s Town, Karumie Huie, told The Gleaner yesterday.”The team started the season slowly by losing the first two league games, but has not lost since, having won four and drawn once in the last five games. We want to continue on that platform,” he said.In the late game, Maverley/Hughenden will look to preserve their winning streak in Zone A. The Maverley/Hughenden team, under the guidance of coach Lijasu Simms, has won six games in a row to be on maximum 19 points. They are seven points clear of second placed Barbican with a game to be played in the first round.
August is national hair loss awareness month, so it’s the perfect time for the team at Patrick Gildea Hairdressing in Letterkenny to share their guide to the causes of hair loss and the treatments they offer:People tend to think of hair loss mainly as a male issue, mostly affecting older men in particular. However, many women are also confronted with reduced volume and thinning at some point in their lives, which can have a negative impact on self-esteem and confidence. Hair loss in women can happen for a number of reasons. Stress, diet, medication, hormonal changes and even a hereditary predisposition for balding can all be contributing factors towards thinning and losing hair.Kiera Galbraith – Patrick Gildea HairdressingKiera Galbraith, one of the specialists in thinning hair at Patrick Gildea Hairdressing, says “At any given time, around 85% of your hair is in a growth phase, known as the anagen phase. The remaining 15% is spent in the telogen resting phase, meaning that it has reached its complete growth potential and will eventually shed. This is the reason why it’s completely natural for both men and women to shed a small amount of hair on a day-to-day basis.“Hair loss occurs when certain triggers, such as those mentioned above, interrupt the healthy growth cycle and far more hair than usual enters the shedding phase, resulting in noticeable areas of hair loss.“Due to the ever-changing nature of hormones throughout our lives, women are particularly vulnerable to some unique hair loss triggers attributed to hormonal change, such a pregnancy and menopause.” So How Can We Help?Making the most of the hair you have begins with a consultation with one of our fully-qualified Hair & Scalp Specialists who will be able to introduce you to the benefits of NIOXIN, talk through your needs and recommend a fully personalised solution.Kiera recommends a Complete Renewal Service which includes:Consultation This is where it all starts: a conversation about the causes of thinning hair and an assessment of your individual needs.

14 October 2013Bafana shared an entertaining and encouraging 1-1 draw with Morocco in a match to celebrate the opening of the new Agadir Stadium in Agadir City, Morocco on Friday evening.The result leaves South Africa still unbeaten against Morocco. In five games between the two countries, the Rainbow Nation has won twice and drawn three times.In the lead-up to the match, coach Gordon Igesund had declared that is was the beginning of a new era, and he was as good as his word, handing three youngsters – Kgosi Ntlhe, Ayanda Patosi and Sibusiso Vilakazi – their debuts, while also featuring Siyana Xulu, Bongani Zungu and Dalyon Claasen, who are also all 23 years-of-age or younger.“I said before we left South Africa that winning is important, but so is blooding in the youngsters. I was prepared to send them in at the risk of losing the match, but we never looked like losing. It is all work in progress,” Igesund told the South African Football Association (Safa) after the match.‘A great mix’“It was a great mix of experienced players guiding the youngsters, but we shouldn’t get ahead of ourselves because we still have a long way to go, and I told the players to keep their feet firmly on the ground because it is only one match.“There is no player too young to play in my squad and no player too old to feature either. If these players continue like this, imagine how they will be in a year or so,” he enthused.“The older players still have a huge role to play and will keep playing until such time the youngsters can stand on their own.”Intent rewardedIt was an encouraging performance from Bafana Bafana, who didn’t let the loud home crowd get to them and took the game to the Atlas Lions. Their intent was rewarded early when Tokelo Rantie netted in the ninth minute to take the wind out of the home supporters’ sails.Rantie, who had already forced Moroccan goalkeeper Mohammed Amsif into a save, ran onto a well-weighted through ball from Claasen, who enjoyed a strong outing. The pass split the defence, allowing Rantie to race at goalkeeper Amsif before beating him from the left of the box.Buoyed by the goal, Bafana confidently moved the ball about the park, but Morocco sounded a warning when Younes Belhanda drew a good save out of South African captain Itumeleng Khune and shortly after that the home side’s skipper Mehdi Benatia tested Khune again.Side nettingLerato Chabangu was denied by Amsif before Omar El Kaddouri blasted a shot into the side-netting of the South African goal after a strong run.Four minutes from the break, South Africa almost doubled their lead. Bernard Parker sent Vilakazi clear with a through ball and only a superb stop by Amsif prevented the Atlas Lions from falling into a deep hole.LevelShortly after the restart they were back on level terms when Ed Adoua got onto the end of a Belhandia free-kick to beat Khune.With the crowd back in the game, the home team pushed hard for a winner, but South Africa were determined to deny them. Morocco controlled possession, but Bafana Bafana resolutely repelled their efforts to turn possession into goals.Substitute Abel Taarabt drew a save out of Khune, but Morocco couldn’t fashion a decent opening and the game finished in an exciting draw.“I think it was a great friendly to play and get a feel of Morocco,” Igesund declared after the contest.‘We won over their supporters’“We won over their supporters with our first half performance. The second half was okay, but substitutions slowed the game down, and we lost a bit of shape.“Some of my youngsters were a little bit nervous, but it was a good performance overall. We were unlucky not to go two up. Patosi didn’t disappoint, but was nervous just like Ntlhe.”Summing up his charges’ performance, Igesund added: “They were very surprised with our play. They didn’t expect us to come at them like that and we were unfortunate not to get away with a victory. I must admit though it was a good equaliser from Morocco, and I cannot complain about their goal which was well taken.”
‘The Uttar Pradesh government is now planning to lease out several acres of land to the BCCI to build an international-level cricket stadium in Agra’In a city where the existing sports stadium is struggling for survival because of the lack of budget and trained coaches, the Uttar Pradesh government is now planning to lease out several acres of land to the Board of Cricket Control in India (BCCI) to build an international-level cricket stadium at the cost of Rs 250 crore in Agra.Talking to India Today at his residence, Raja Mahendra Aridaman Singh, the single minister from Agra in the Uttar Pradesh cabinet, said he had referred the long-standing demand of Agra for an international-level sports stadium to chief minister Akhilesh Yadav, who has agreed to provide land for the stadium at a discounted rate, as long as the construction of the superstructure and maintenance are done by the BCCI, in collaboration with the Uttar Pradesh Cricket Association.”With an international stadium in Agra, other infrastructure facilities like an international airport, world-class roads and amenities will also arrive in the city very soon,” Singh said.The minister claimed that he had already written a letter to the BCCI, inviting their officials to visit Agra and choose the land for building the stadium, so that the project may begin soon.He said that the stadium project is expected to cost around Rs 250 crore and the cost for it will be borne by the agencies that will construct the stadium at a build-operate-transfer (BOT) basis.advertisementHowever, some feel this move won’t help the overall sport infrastructure of the city.Commenting on the minister’s statement, social activist Deep Sharma said the state government seems to think that only cricket is a sport and the rest are just ways to pass time.”There are several Olympians living in Agra, including Jagbir Singh who was a member of the world-champion hockey team of India, but this city doesn’t even have an astroturf for its hockey players. A world-class squash court that was built a few years back because of the efforts of the then Commissioner of Agra, is lying unused as there is no coach in the stadium to train the squash players,” Sharma said.”The basketball court of the stadium is so badly damaged that the players get hurt while playing on it. The stadium is facing numerous court cases due to the cantonment authorities objecting to the recent constructions there. Taxes worth lakhs are pending on it. In such conditions, the state government should first think of improving the state of the existing sports stadium of the city, instead of going for a new stadium which will take several years to build,” Sharma said.
(REOPENS DEL 48) (REOPENS DEL 48) However, it was not a good day at his favourite ground for Rohit Sharma (2), who was dismissed by Patel. The right-hander also looked to have hurt his left shoulder while attempting a single. For the Kiwis, it was a tale of two comeback men as first 24-year-old Henry (3/35), who had replaced their pace spearhead Tim Southee created quite a flutter by removing both the openers — Shikhar Dhawan (1) and Murali Vijay (9). Off the second ball of his first over, Henry bowled Dhawan who tried to cut in an angled delivery only to drag the ball back to his stumps. Replacing Lokesh Rahul, Dhawans stint lasted just 10 balls with scorecard reading 1/1 in the second over. Vijay also perished to a beauty from the youngster playing only his fifth Test. Continuing a rare lean patch, skipper Kohli (9) was steadying the ship with a set Pujara, but Trent Boult (1/33) dismissed the skipper. Kohli got carried away after an exquisite cover drive that was cheered by the small turnout and went for an IPL-like shot chasing a ball way outside the off-stump to be caught brilliantly by Tom Latham. The dismissal less than half an before the lunch break disturbed Indias recovery plan before Pujara and Rahane held firm in the second session. Pujara, who played a crucial role with his 62 and 78 in the Kanpur Test, again showed the kind of application needed with his team off a bad start. After aiding seam movement and offering variable bounce in the morning, the pitch turned slower on a sultry afternoon, offering occasional turn. However Pujara and Rahane batted sensibly to resurrect the innings. They were never in a hurry and played according to the merit of the ball, collecting timely boundaries in the process. Giving him a able support at the other end was Rahane, who hit 11 fours in his 157-ball stay at the crease. Rahanes resolute knock came to and end when Patel trapped him LBW with India exactly at 200. Down the order, Ravichandran Ashwin played a useful knock of 26 that was laced with four hits to the boundary. PTI TAP PM PMadvertisement
Now that voters have approved a proposal to expand Medicaid in Nebraska, groups that fought for the measure are gearing up to put the new law into effect – and keeping watch for attempts to sabotage it.Nebraska lawmakers still need to approve funding for the expansion, and Gov. Pete Ricketts’ administration has to submit a request to the federal government to amend the state’s current Medicaid plan so an additional 90,000 low-income citizens can qualify.Opponents in the Legislature acknowledge it’s highly unlikely they’ll get the 33 votes needed to amend the voter-approved law but promise a contentious debate over how to pay for it.Expansion supporters said they’re wary given the experience in Maine, where a 2017 statewide vote for Medicaid expansion was met by numerous delays.
