LOS ANGELES — What Kevon Looney is doing in the early goings of these 2019 NBA Playoffs isn’t a surprise.Yes, he might have the same net rating as James Harden through three games, and he might have a patently absurd true shooting percentage (85 percent), too, but this is not a fluke — this is one of the best bench bigs in the NBA providing the same kind of steady, stout play that brought about his breakout in last year’s postseason and carried into the 2018-19 regular season.The only …
29 February 2012The British High Commission has launched a £1-million (R11.9-million) fund for 2012/13 to support projects in South Africa that are linked to prosperity, trade and low carbon growth.According to the high commission, the money is part of a global fund which seeks to build prosperity “by increasing exports and investments, opening markets, ensuring access to resources and energy security, and promoting sustainable global growth, including avoiding climate change”.“Global security is underpinned by sustainable growth, higher levels of employment, rising standards of living, and greater regional/international trade,” the commission said, adding that climate change constituted one the biggest threats to global security.It was therefore in the UK’s interest to promote open and stable markets and economies, tackle barriers to economic development, and support a global transition to a low carbon economy, the commission said.The commission invited organisations to submit project proposals that met the criteria outlined in its Prosperity Fund strategy (see “related documents”).Concept bids should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than 2 March 2012.

Operation Hydrate in QwaQwa in the Free State making sure people are hydrated. (Image: Operation Hydrate Facebook)This summer, South Africa is in the grips of the severest drought in 20 years, coupled with one of the harshest heat waves the country has experienced. The towns of Senekal, in Free State, and Aliwal North, in Eastern Cape, for example, have run out of water.In response, Operation Hydrate was established by good Samaritans from various communities, NGOs, religious groups and companies to play their part in saving lives and easing the suffering of thousands of people.The initiative hopes to distribute over a million litres of water to the drought stricken Free State and parts of Eastern Cape.“We have distributed over 350 000 litres of water so far,” said Yaseen Theba, Operation Hydrate’s co-ordinator. “We cannot sit by idly as we watch our fellow South Africans die of thirst. As civil society we have the power to make a difference and help those in need when we unite around a common cause such as this.“The joy on the faces of those who have been receiving drinking water is remarkable and most humbling. Many have not had water for weeks.”South Africa’s farming communities have been the hardest hit by the drought and livestock are suffering and dying, while crops are withering.GOVERNMENT SUPPORTThe portfolio committee on water and sanitation supports Operation Hydrate and views it as a noble initiative that must have the support of society as a whole.It urges everyone, from individuals to big business, to contribute. “It is only through a commitment to mutual action that the country will overcome the current challenge of water scarcity,” said Mlungisi Johnson, the chairperson of the committee.In addition, the committee urged all South Africans to recommit to a culture of prudent water use. This recommitment, coupled with vigilance in relation to water leakages, would ensure that South Africa saved water that was currently being lost.CORPORATE SUPPORTProudly South African has thanked and applauded all the volunteers and donors involved in Operation Hydrate. It also encouraged businesses and corporates to dig deep to support the relief efforts.“At times like these we’re called upon to be of service to humanity and to respond to the basic needs of our people,” said chief executive Lesley Sedibe. “Among these are the promises of a better life and the restoration of (the) dignity of our people, which includes a basic human right such as access to water.“This initiative shows that many South Africans from all walks of life naturally band together to help their fellow countrymen and -women who are in desperate need of assistance. Despite the many challenges we face, Operation Hydrate also shows we are still a people of hope and humanity. Ultimately what unites us is far greater than our differences.”Mango, the low-cost subsidiary of SAA, has contributed to the initiative by giving water to the value of R500 000 for distribution through the initiative.“South Africans have always rolled up their sleeves with immense resolve and this initiative, created entirely through a critical mass on social media, prompted action,” said Mango chief executive Nico Bezuidenhout.“There is no question about the strength of the South African character and as an airline for all the people, Mango was inspired to participate in our usual hands-on fashion and is purchasing water from a percentage of ticket sales this week.”For information about helping or where to drop off water or send donations, visit the Operation Hydrate Facebook page, or follow @HydrateSA on Twitter, #OperationHydrate.Have you played your part to make South Africa better for all?

This feature is activated through the drag-and-drop interface and dragging the content to the Streamy service from the available list of services to post to (green arrow icon, once again). This posts the story to your profile which your friends can then see when they click on “Shared Stuff” from their own Streamy homepage. It also appears in the “New from People” homepage feed. In a way, this is a lot like FriendFeed’s home feed which is comprised of all the shared items from your FriendFeed friends. What Streamy needs to work on: Unlike FriendFeed, groups can’t be auto-populated with content like RSS feeds, Twitter accounts, YouTube videos, etc. Everything needs to be manually entered through a text box or shared with the group via Streamy’s sharing features. However, sharing items from your subscriptions or recommended stories is more difficult than it should be. Despite Streamy’s cool drag-and-drop interface for posting to external services, sharing with groups or individuals still leaves a lot to be desired. When you first grab an item to share it, icons appear letting you save it (the star icon), share to other services like Facebook or Twitter (green arrow), or share with a friend (people icon). When you select the share with friends option, though, only a limited number of people appear and they’re only identified with their avatar, not by name. Also missing is a way to share with the groups from here. Instead, to share with a group, you have to click on the story’s headline then access the share button from the top right of the article. Once here, it’s very easy to share with either people, groups, or services. It’s the sort of option that should be available directly from the homepage without any extra clicks. Facebook is Becoming Less Personal and More Pro… Related Posts What Streamy needs to work on: Unlike FriendFeed, your own “Shared Stuff” isn’t populated with the dozens of social media services that FriendFeed supports. Instead, Streamy displays all your site activity, including friends you added and groups you created or joined. Your friends will then see your Streamy status updates, shared stories, and stories you commented on mixed in with these other activities in their “New from People” feed. We’re not sure that we want to see people’s site-wide activity (like who they just friended) – we’re more interested in the actual content they’re sharing. 5. …And So Much More!What Streamy really has going for it, though, is what FriendFeed didn’t – the dashboard aggregator, integration with other social media services, and built in chat. Streamy’s layout is a lot different from FriendFeed – or from Twitter for that matter – and that may be good thing in some people’s opinion. As opposed to a real-time “river of news” the site’s homepage is a widget-filled dashboard with updates from your feeds, Facebook, and any other services you add. It also includes a friend list showing your IM buddies from Google Chat, AIM, or MSN. The Status update box lets you post to Facebook, Twitter, Streamy, or (for now) FriendFeed. As you delve into the dashboards for the other services using the small buttons at the top, you’ll be surprised to find things like a full-on Twitter client complete with replies, DMs, and trending topics, for example. Digg’s dashboard is a nice, consolidated view of what’s hot on that service… and so on. Tags:#Lifestreaming#RSS Readers#social networks#Social Web#Trends#web What Streamy needs to work on: Although FriendFeed’s river of news was also personalized based on who you followed, the site offered a number of ways to surface popular content. When your friends commented on an item, it “bubbled up” to appear at the top of your stream, for instance. FriendFeed also had a “best of day” feature which displayed the most active stories that day. Streamy doesn’t have anything like this so content with comments could easily become lost. For now, the best way to see stories your friends comment on is in the “New from People” homepage widget (also available in the “People” section) which is an activity feed of your friends’ comments among other things. 3. Groups: Streamy’s Version of FriendFeed RoomsStreamy has a feature which lets you create groups which is somewhat reminiscent of FriendFeed’s Rooms feature. As with Rooms, groups can be topic-based so you and your friends can discuss the news. You can browse through your own group memberships to see which groups you’re a member of and you can access the admin features for the groups you own. Also like FriendFeed, groups can be public or private as you choose and you can invite members simply by typing their name. What Streamy needs to work on: One thing Streamy needs to improve in this area is the ability to “select all” the friends it finds and let you follow them in one fell swoop. At the moment, you have to click “Follow” next to each individual who you want to add. It’s also really hard to see who’s following you and then reciprocate. Although new followers appear on the homepage in the “new from friends” section, you have to “remove” each person from this box after following them only to have more new followers appear in their place. And there’s no way to tell whether or not you were already following these people, which leads to confusion. There should be a centralized way of managing this activity and the homepage widget definitely needs to sync with your following choices made on the backend.2. Comment on StoriesOn the Streamy homepage, a section called “Stories for You” delivers personalized news based on your site activity like stories you and your friends are sharing and commenting on. However, since at first Streamy has no activity to go on, it simply recommends “popular” stories to you and those may not be stories you actually enjoy. Like FriendFeed, you can comment on these stories and those comments will be seen by others reading the same story. Also like FriendFeed, undesirable stories can be hidden from your view with the “hide” button. However, unlike FriendFeed, Streamy actually introduces a great feature here: threaded comments. Each comment has a “reply” button next to it, letting users reply to each other’s comments as opposed to simply creating a new one. If you don’t like the dashboard, you can also choose to have Streamy load up directly to your feeds or one of the other social media services Streamy supports. What Streamy needs to work on: Adding widgets to the dashboard needs improvement. You have to first click on the widget (+) button from the top of the page to select the additional widgets. While simple enough in theory, there were some bugs when testing this out. For example, adding a Digg widget for the topic “Technology” was a dead-end. After you get the drop-down box to select a topic, there’s no “go” or “add” button to actually complete the process.ConclusionIn the end, Streamy shows a lot of potential for becoming a great service and they could certainly capitalize on FriendFeed’s impending shutdown if they so desired. However, there’s still a bit of work to be done to make the service as usable as it needs to be for ex-FriendFeed users. In Streamy’s defense, however, they originally never had the goal of competing with FriendFeed which is why things are the way they are. Like us, they never imagined FriendFeed would be acquired and shut down. Now that it has sold, though, the company is interested in seeing how they could appeal to the community of early adopters who originally made FriendFeed their home.Will Streamy be able to make the necessary changes in time before someone else lures the ex-FriendFeeders over to their service? Perhaps. The company, currently a small 3-person team, has made amazing strides so far and is currently looking into getting additional funding. In the next couple of months, if things go well, we may see a lot of changes happen very quickly – specifically to the social networking aspects of the service. The company also sees a lot of potential to incorporate new features which aren’t simply FriendFeed dupes. Hopefully, we’ll be able to update this post someday soon with details as to what those may be. In wake of the news of the FriendFeed acquisition by Facebook, we’re faced with the real possibility that FriendFeed.com will be shut down for good. According to the press release, “FriendFeed.com will continue to operate normally for the time being…” In other words, it’s only a matter of time before the site is gone for good. What is the FriendFeed community to do? At one time, FriendFeed clones like Lifestream.fm and Socialthing! looked like promising alternatives, but neither of them offered the same rich and innovative features that FriendFeed does – the very features which made FriendFeed the standout service that it is today. However, there is one service that may have an opportunity to capitalize on the FriendFeed exodus: social media aggregator Streamy. Could Streamy be a Contender? Yes!When we looked at Streamy back in March of this year, we were more than impressed with what it had to offer. For some reason though, the service’s social networking aspects never really became heavily used by the early adopter crowd. Everyone had their own reasons for this decision of course, with complaints which ranged from the service feeling a little too raw for everyday use to its RSS reader which couldn’t (and still doesn’t) provide a viable alternative to Google Reader. However, we think the main reason for the lack of uptake has more to do with the fact that Streamy’s core audience was already busy interacting, commenting, and “liking” items over on their social media aggregator of choice: FriendFeed. Now, with FriendFeed out of the way (or soon to be, that is), it may be time for us to give Streamy another look. There are a number of features which should appeal to today’s FriendFeed users if they decide to make the switch. However, there are still some issues with how Streamy implements these features, and we’ll make note of those too. 1. FriendFeed Friend ImportWhen you sign up for Streamy, you have the option to find your friends on other services. One of those services is FriendFeed. By clicking on the “People” link at the top of the page then selecting “Find Friends” you can import your friends from Facebook, Twitter, FriendFeed, Google, and even Flickr. This is at least as good as FriendFeed’s own friend import process which only imported from email, Twitter, and Facebook. Plus, it gives you the ability to easily re-create your FriendFeed social graph on Streamy without having to manually seek out your friends and re-add them.

Manager Santiago Solari revealed what he told Vinicius after he scored the goal against Real Valladolid, he also gave his impressions of the win.After so much pressure had mounted against Real Madrid in the last few weeks, the Spanish squad really needed a victory like the one they got today under interim manager Santiago Solari as his decision to use Vinicius paid off. Throughout the whole match, the Argentine manager was able to write down the many concepts that he needs to improve for the next match against Viktoria Plzen and he also took note of the players who are not going through the best moment of the season.The one that especially worried Santi was Gareth Bale, the Welshman left eh pitch of the Bernabeu in the middle of a thunderous jeer because he doesn’t seem to be making the effort from other seasons.Amongst all the players who struggled to find their best form, there was Vinicius who could lift up the spirit of his teammates right after he got on the pitch and didn’t take long to create the first goal at the Bernabeu.After he went to celebrate the goal with Solari on the sideline, we could see the manager shouting instructions to a player who was happy for his moment.👊 That winning feeling!#RMLiga | #HalaMadrid pic.twitter.com/ur3BGMYO1Y— Real Madrid C.F. 🇬🇧🇺🇸 (@realmadriden) November 3, 2018After the match, Santiago Solari spoke with the media about Vinicius and many more topics, but the press was a lot more interested in the Brazilian and his performance.When Santiago was questioned about the instructions he gave Vinicius after the first goal, the manager revealed what he said.“I asked him to be more daring on the attack, I asked him to go after the defenders in a one vs one situation, I asked him to dribble and to not be afraid which is something he already does anyway,” said Solari on the Real Madrid website.“But most importantly, I asked him to defend more, which is something that he needs to improve.”“The football players or the people who are inside this world of football cannot fight with what happens outside of the pitch, we can’t change the mind of the media.”“I love the people getting hopeful for players like Vinicius, who is still 18 and has his whole career in front of him.”“All the analysis about him will need to get made 20 years from now, once he’s finished his career.”Fati and Suarez shine against Valencia at Camp Nou Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 15, 2019 With a mesmerizing first half from Ansu Fati and a brace from Luis Suarez in the second half, Barcelona demolished Valencia at Camp Nou.Valencia…“For now, Vinicius is one more element from the squad, who has his obvious virtues and his defects as well.

This has been a very challenging test for us against a very difficult opponent, they took this match very seriously and were always very close together which is always harmful to us,” continued Solari.“I would like to congratulate the lads because they played a very serious game, very strict. Games with results like this are always like that.”“This is what football is all about, very visceral, emotional, it relies a lot on self-confidence from the players.”“The whole dynamic changed after the first goal and the hormones flowed inside the pitch after that. Scoring the first goal was very important, as it was also important to keep a clean sheet.”“Valladolid is a very tough opponent, they hadn’t lost in the last seven matches. This is a very serious squad and they can hurt you when you leave them space to do it. We needed these three points.”2We need to keep calm, we can’t surrender and we need to stay organized in order to create a balance but I think we could pull it off. I’m very well actually, I have been in this situation before as a player, I am already used to the stadium,” he concluded.🎙💬 Santiago Solari takes charge of @realmadrid in a LaLiga match for the first time tomorrow!
