BiH lost from Spain in a Friendly Match (Gallery + Video)

first_img[wzslider autoplay=”true”]National football team of BiH was defeated with the score 3: 1 by selection of Spain in a friendly match that was played in St. Gallen. Our team provided very good resistance since they played without excluded Emir Spahic from the 45th minute, whose reckless move marked the match.This was the 7th meeting between BiH and Spain and the first in the friendly matches. Counting this match, Spain has 5 wins, while 2 matches were finished as draws.Head coach Mehmed Bazdarevic could not count in this match on injured Ermin Bicakcic, Senad Lulic and Vedad Ibisevic, who were not even on the list. When it comes to players who came from Switzerland, Rijad Bajic drop out because of injury. The 21-year-old striker of Dinamo Zagreb, Armin Hodzic, enrolled his debut in the jersey of the Dragons.On the other side, Vicente del Bosque could not count on players of Barcelona, Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid as well as players of Sevilla. Therefore, Spain came in quite different composition.Spaniards had a 100 % chance through Aduriz in the first minute, which was stopped by our goalkeeper Asmir Begovic. There was no excitement in the next 10 minutes, but Spain had the last word.The network was shaken in 11th minute for the first time, when Nolito checkmated Begovic. The Spaniards had a corner on the left, and after short pass and after a quick action, they made a center shot. Dzeko, in order to eliminate the danger, added the ball to Nolito who scored for 1: 0.Our team looked quite confused at the beginning of the match, and new shock followed by Nolito in the 18th minute. This time Besic poorly responded and Celta Vigo used this and scored for 2:0.As time went by, our team played better and we managed to make better attacks. After such an attack we won a corner on the right, Pjanic centered, and Emir Spahic scored for 2:1 in 29th minute.In last minutes of the match, there was a conflict between our players and players of Spain, in which Spahic got a red card, and our team was left with one player less.On the beginning of the second part, Izet Hajrovic replaced Edin Visca in the 46th minute and brought a bit of freshness to our team, which played very well, although we had a player less.New great chance came in the 66th minute when Duljevic hit goalpost while seeking for Djuric. Four minutes later, Duljevic created another chance after Pjanic’s great shot, but the ball went near the left goalpost.These chances are an indication that the national team of BiH dealt very well with Spain, despite of numerical advantage. The Spaniards had their chance to score in the 75th minute, when Oyarzabal shot next to the goal.When it seemed that the second half will bring no goals, Pedro set the final 3: 1 in the last minute, after which the match was ended.Take a look at the VIDEO.(Source: O.

Urban Forestry Restoration Project: Helping our Trees Help Us

first_imgFacebook2Tweet0Pin0Submitted by The City of LaceyThe Urban Forestry Restoration Project, administered by the Washington State Dept. of Natural Resources (DNR) Urban and Community Forestry Program, is an exciting opportunity to enhance the capacity of urban forests to manage storm water and improve air and water quality by improving the health and functionality of trees and forested sites in urban settings. Even more exciting is our opportunity to participate in this program here in Lacey at Lake Lois Habitat Reserve.A Puget SoundCorps team will work with City staff to remove the English ivy, Himalayan blackberry, Spurge Laurel, Scotch Broom and Robert’s Geranium from Lake Lois Habitat Reserve during the month of December. These invasive non-native plants prevent forested areas from providing our community the full benefits and services of healthy forests by competing for water and nutrients, and in some cases even killing trees. Many undesirable plants that grow in dense thickets also harbor rats and other vermin, creating a public safety hazard as well. Once the unwelcome plants are gone, native vegetation will be planted in its place.The Lacey Board of Park Commissioners approved the Forest Management Plan for Lake Lois Park and Lake Lois Habitat Reserve in September of 2012. Volunteers have been removing invasive plants and re-planting those areas with native trees to implement the recommendations in the plan.  Paul Royer, Chair of the Park Board states, “Many people are not aware of Lake Lois Habitat Reserve, but once they have been out to volunteer, they realize the importance of what they are doing and the difference it makes in the health of the forest.”To learn more about future volunteer opportunities, contact the Lacey Parks and Recreation Dept. at (360) 491-0857, or Lacey’s official website at www.ci.lacey.wa.us.For more information about the Urban Forestry Restoration Project, visit the Project online or contact Micki McNaughton at (360) 902-1637 or micki.mcnaughton@dnr.wa.gov. DNR’s Urban and Community Forestry Program is made possible through a partnership with the USDA Forest Service. Puget SoundCorps is part of the broader Washington Conservation Corps program administered by Washington Dept. of Ecology. Puget SoundCorps crews work on projects that help restore and protect water quality in Puget Sound. The Washington Conservation Corps is supported through grant funding and Education Awards provided by AmeriCorps.last_img read more

Sea Bright Residents Can Visit Property Monday, Tuesday; 56 Buildings Deemed…

first_imgBy Michele J. KuhnWEST LONG BRANCH – Sea Bright residents will be permitted to check on their homes and retrieve essential items  – according to a set scheduled – on Monday and Tuesday, Nov. 5-6, and most likely will not be able to move back until they have obtained a Certificate of Occupancy.Residents are also bracing for a nor’ester than is predicted to hit the area Wednesday, bringing with it high winds, and heavy rains.While the damage in Sea Bright has been extreme, there has been no loss of life, Mayor Dina Long said. “Thank you…  for hanging in there … for keeping the faith,” he said before requesting a moment of silence and reciting the Pledge of Allegiance.Long held a meeting Sunday afternoon outside in the stadium at Shore Regional High School to update the resident of the borough that was hard-hit by Hurricane Sandy. Hundreds of residents sat on metal bleachers in the chilly air and listened to Long as she and other officials spoke over a bullhorn.The mayor told residents that all properties in the borough had been assessed for damage and that 56 were deemed to be uninhabitable and no admittance could be gained. Others had been deemed as substantially damaged; still others had from little visible damage to varying degrees of damage.“Every single house in Sea bright sustained some damage,” Councilman C. Read Murphy told the shivering crowd.Each borough property has been inspected and its assessment is listed on the borough’s website at www.seabrightnj.org.“We have moved heaven and earth to get you in to your property,” Long said of the schedule officials mapped out for residents to return briefly to their homes.Those living in the northern end of the borough up to the Rumson Bridge may visit their property from 9 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. Monday, Nov. 5. Those with property south of the bridge may visit from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 6.Residents may bring bags to get essential items to the foot of the Rumson Bridge during those hours. There they will be put on shuttle buses and dropped at their property. They will later be picked up and shuttled back to Rumson. “Please do not bring children. Please do not bring pets,” she said. Long also asked that resident not walk around the borough because conditions are still considered dangerous.While visiting their homes, residents can board their windows with plywood and supplies donated by Builder’s General. Borough employees will be able to help residents with the window boarding.While Long said she believed residents with would not be able to go back to their homes with full access for themselves and their cars until Monday, Nov. 12, Councilman James LoBiondo said he believed it could be this Friday, Nov. 9. Long later said she hoped LoBiondo’s assessment was the correct one. She called the situation in Sea Bright “fluid” with changes occurring on a regular basis.LoBiondo reported to the cheers of the residents that all gas leaks had been contained but service would be shut off to half of the borough for up to a month because of the damage to the system.Sewer pumps that were damaged in town were being replaced this week.Water service has not been interrupted and the system would not be shut down because officials wanted to keep the sprinkler systems in buildings with them operational. However, resident who had burst pipes were told they could shut off water to their homes, if it could be safely done.LoBiondo said the fire department has been going door-to-door to look for noticeable water pipe breaks.Crews from Jersey Central Power & Light (JCP&L) were working Sunday in town, along with power company crews from as far away as Ohio, to restore power. They were initially replacing or straightening utility poles and checking their status. Once that was completed, they would begin repairing or restringing power lines.Six feet of sand was blown onto Sea Bright streets and could be fouling various service lines. Crews were working to check them and were looking to see if storm sewer lines needed to have sand blown out of them to help lessen the impact of any flooding from the anticipated storm this week.Councilman Murphy reported that the seawall had been breached in two placed, near Tradewinds and the old Anchorage beach clubs.Murphy praised the mayor and council and said they all had “boots on the ground since day 1” to assist residents and get the borough back to as near normal as possible. Long also praised council members, borough employees, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and Monmouth County for its response to the disaster.A representative of FEMA told the crowd that he worked in Washington. D.C. and had worked on other East Coast hurricane recoveries. “I toured your area a couple of days ago,” he said, “and, to be honest with you, it blew me away.” He urged residents to call FEMA (1-800-621-3362) and get a case number so the agency can assist them.Representatives from FEMA will be available on Tuesday at the Fair Haven Fire Department on River Road — where Sea Bright residents are to cast ballots on Election Day — to help answer questions and assist residents. Phones will be avaiable for those who need to contact loved ones or their insurance companies.Long said Bingham Hall, 40 Bingham Ave, in Rumson was a place where residents could go for warm clothing, a hot meal, hot showers and take care of other needs. Food, water and cleaning supplies will also be available at the VNA office at 141 Bodman Place in Red Bank. The mayor urged residents to keep checking the borough’s website for updates and not to believe rumors that have been swirling about.Rescue workers got a bit of a boost Sunday when world class chefs David Burke of David Burke Fromagerie in Rumson, Chris Wood of Woody’s Ocean Grille in Sea Bright, Pat Trama of Ama Ristorante at Driftwood  and others brought food and equipment to the Sea Bright Firehouse and cooked them a meal.last_img read more

BRICS on track to set up development bank

first_img18 November 2014 President Jacob Zuma flanked by international relations minister Maite Nkoana-Mashabane and finance minister Nhlanhla Nene during the informal BRICS meeting. (Image: GCIS)An interim board of directors has been set up by BRICS to lead the next phase to establish the National Development Bank (NDB), an institution similar to the International Monetary Fund that will support the five emerging national economies.This was announced by BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) during an informal meeting on the first day of the G20 Leaders’ Summit held in Brisbane, Australia from 15 to 16 November, according to a statement from the South African Department of International Relations and Cooperation (DIRCO).Appointment of NDB presidentThe leaders of BRICS also recommended their finance ministers to appoint an NDB president and vice-president well in advance of the next BRICS Summit to be held in the Russian city of Ufa in 2015.The bank, which will be headquartered in Shanghai, China, will focus on BRICS infrastructure projects, but will be also open to new members from the United Nations. Each BRICS country will contribute US$2-billion to the bank’s funds from their budgets over the next seven years. The bank’s authorized capital will be set at US$100 billion.BRICS cooperation at new levelBRICS leaders underscored that the signing of the agreements establishing the NDB and the Contingent Reserve Arrangement (CRA) brought BRICS cooperation “to a fundamentally new level with the creation of instruments to contribute to the stability of the international financial system’, according to DIRCO.“The Leaders asked their Finance Ministers and Central Bank Governors to ensure that, by the next BRICS Summit, the CRA Working Group concludes the procedural rules and operational guidelines of the Governing Council and the Standing Committee of the CRA. They also asked their Central Bank Governors to ensure that the Inter-Central Bank Agreement foreseen in the CRA be concluded by the Summit in Russia.’On the G20 Leaders’ Summit, BRICS leaders discussed some of the issues on the agenda, which include measures to promote growth and job creation; investment and infrastructure; trade; and cooperation on tax matters.Global economySix years after the international financial crisis, BRICS leaders noted that a full recovery is yet to be experienced by member countries. However, emerging market economies have been contributing to global economic activity by sustaining high growth rates, despite adverse circumstances and spill-overs from policies of major advanced economies, especially monetary policies.“The Leaders noted the G20 efforts, but underscored that more needs to be done to support global demand in the short-run, especially by advanced economies, and to promote an increase in investment and long-run growth potential. They underscored that investment and economic reforms are critically important to boosting demand and lifting long-term growth. Emerging market economies remain in general well prepared to face external shocks,’ said DIRCO.The BRICS leaders also noted their concern at the non-implementation of the 2010 International Monetary Fund reforms, and its impact on the Fund’s legitimacy and credibility. They said in the event that the United States fails to ratify the 2010 reforms by the end of 2014, they called on the G20 to schedule a discussion of the options for next steps that the IMF has committed to present in January 2015.EbolaThe Ebola epidemic is of concern and has severe economic and social impact, the BRICS leaders noted. They also expressed their commitment to work with the international community in the response to this epidemic and supported efforts made by the United Nations and its agencies, including the World Health Organization, as well as other institutions.In addition, BRICS leaders reaffirmed their commitment to reinforce full-fledged intra-BRICS cooperation as agreed at the Fortaleza Summit in Brazil earlier this year. They said they look forward to the formulation of a long-term economic cooperation framework to forge closer BRICS partnership.SAinfo reporterlast_img read more
