‘Footage’ of John Jensen receiving his Denmark squad list

first_imgJohn Jensen admitted he had to ask who his players were at what position they played in ahead of Denmark’s loss to Slovakia.Jensen answered his nation’s call when it was revealed first team stars were staying because of a dispute over commercial image rights between the Danish Football Association and the players’ union (Spillerne).It meant Futsal players and amateur footballers represented Denmark instead.“I had to start from scratch and ask each player his name and which position he plays on the field,” Jensen told a news conference. It reminded of a scene in Mike Bassett: England Manager.In the 2001 film, Bassett, played by Ricky Tomlinson, writes his squad list down on the back of a cigarette packet leading to unexpected call-ups for lower league players Ron Benson and Tony Hedges. impact How the Premier League table could change after the Boxing Day fixtures BEST OF Forbes list reveals how much Mayweather, Ronaldo and Messi earned this decade silverware RANKED Best clips, calls and talkSPORT moments of 2019, feat Hearn, McCoist and more Top nine Premier League free transfers of the decade Every Championship club’s best signing of the decade, including Taarabt and Dack REVEALED highlights center_img MONEY possible standings Most popular football news Ronaldo warned Lukaku how hard scoring goals in Serie A would be before Inter move Every current Premier League club’s best kit from the past decade Which teams do the best on Boxing Day in the Premier League era? smart causal ADVICE Every time Ally McCoist lost it on air in 2019, including funny XI reactions England’s most successful clubs of the past decade, according to trophies won last_img read more

Sharks’ Micheal Haley talks about his run-in with Golden Knights goalie

first_imgSAN JOSE — Sharks forward Micheal Haley said he was simply trying to go to the net to create a scoring opportunity.If, as a by-product of that, Haley happened to get Vegas Golden Knights goalie Marc-Andre Fleury to lose his composure for a moment, then so be it.“I don’t know if that was my intention,” Haley said. “I was trying to score a goal and got hit into him, you know? Things like that, I’m going to the net and got hit into him. I’m sure he was just reacting. It happens.”If you’re …last_img

South Africa’s first wine tourism exhibition

first_imgWine tourism will finally get its own official exhibition when the Vindaba takes place in September next year. (Image: Franschhoek Wine Route) MEDIA CONTACTS • André Morgenthal  Wosa communications manager  +27 21 883 3860 or +27 82 658 3883 RELATED ARTICLES • Wine route celebrates 40 years • SA wine farms invest in biodiversity • SA, France toast to wine exchange • SA wine bottles to lighten up • SA wines lead ‘green’ label driveShamin ChibbaTwo of South Africa’s leading industries, wine and tourism, will combine for the country’s first ever wine tourism exhibition.The Vindaba takes place at the Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC) in September next year and will run parallel with the Cape Wine exhibition at the same venue.The exhibition, backed by both national and provincial governments, will target the international travel trade as well as wine, travel and lifestyle media.According to André Morgenthal, Wines of South Africa’s (Wosa) communications manager, the Vindaba will look to exhibit the hotels, restaurants, wine routes, tour operators and farms that are linked to the wine industry.As South Africa is considered a world leader in eco-sustainable wine production, organisers aim to promote Vindaba as a green initiative by using recycled and recyclable materials.The Vindaba is the brainchild of Wosa, South African Tourism, Cape Town Tourism, Wine Routes, Cape Town Routes Unlimited and the Department of Finance, Tourism and Economic Development of the Western Cape.Morgenthal explained that the CTICC was chosen as a venue because it is able to accommodate the exhibition’s expected 1 000+ guests and more than 320 wineries and 100 travel trade organisations.Though the Vindaba and Cape Wine are taking place at the same time, Morgenthal said they target two different industries. The former looks to attract international tour operators who specifically offer wine tours, while the latter targets wine traders.SA part of the global wine tourism industryWine tourism contributes R5-billion (US$720-million) of the local wine industry’s annual R22-billion ($3.2-billion) turnover.Speaking at a stakeholder’s workshop in April this year, tourism minister Marthinus van Schalkwyk said wine tourism is currently one of the fastest growing sectors in the global tourism market. He further stated that it should be central in marketing South Africa as a long-haul destination.Van Schalkwyk added that wine tourism provides the country with a competitive edge when it comes to the global tourism market, especially over destinations such as Brazil, Kenya, Australia and Thailand.Another South African advantage is that the majority of vineyards are concentrated in the Western Cape, making travelling easier for tourists.With an organised wine tourism sector, more jobs will be created in an industry that already employs as much as 275 000 workers.Wine tourism’s long road to approvalThough wine tourism has been part of South Africa’s tourism setup since 1971, when the Stellenbosch wine route was launched, it has never received the marketing treatment that Vindaba promises.Morgenthal has spent nine of his 10 years in the wine industry trying to persuade relevant parties to believe in the value of wine tourism. “I was bashing my head and knocking on doors to officialise wine tourism.”He believes a lack of resources delayed its recognition as a worthwhile investment. He added that the industry had to mature over time before its intrinsic and financial value became evident.The phenomenon of wine tourismThe global growth of wine tourism can be attributed to the influence of the media, said Morgenthal, who believes genres such as the internet and television have played massive roles in shaping the public’s perception of wine in the last five years.He said people have become so interested in lifestyle and cooking shows that entire television networks are now dedicated to such shows. Thanks to these networks and the internet, the lifestyle attached to food and wine has become easily accessible.People, said Morgenthal, are willing to spend money on trips to vineyards that produce their favourite wines.“They want to get closer to the real thing, for the experience beyond the bottle. They want to be part of the process. When they are there, the wine tastes better.”Additionally, a trip to a vineyard educates enthusiasts who want to know more about wine.Morgenthal said some vineyards are finding creative ways to lure consumers by offering mountain bike rides, horse rides and even jungle gyms for children, therefore compelling the consumer to extend their visit.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

South Africa’s Route 62 is world’s best road trip

first_imgThe scenic Route 62, between Cape Town and Oudtshoorn, has been named by CNN Travel as the world’s best road trip destination. Here are five must-see stops along the legendary Western Cape route.Voted the best road trip in the world by CNN, Route 62 in the Western Cape has it all: wildlife, good food, fine wines, beautiful views and lots to do. (Image: Route 62 website)CD AndersonA CNN Travel poll, as voted by tourists and travel journalists, puts the scenic and fun-filled road between Cape Town and Oudtshoorn, Route 62, as the top road trip destination in the world, beating out a host of legendary global grand tours including Canada’s Alcan Highway and the Ticlio Pass in Peru.While Route 62 primarily connects Cape Town to Oudtshoorn, and ultimately the Garden Route further east, a host of attractions and activities along the road, and off its beaten path, incorporate smaller towns in the area, including Montagu, Humansdorp and parts of the Klein Karoo.CNN calls the road “a journey to the unexpected”, with something for everyone, highlighting the natural beauty of the region’s “fauna, rivers, valleys and plains” and the diversity of activities available that turn the seemingly mundane commute into an adventure.Everything and anything from wine tours and safari drives, heritage and art tours, hiking and mountain climbing, water sport and fishing, or just quiet contemplation while watching one of kind views with a cold drink and a good meal, Route 62 has it all.Ronnies Sex ShopThe legendary roadside bar, midway on the route, is a quirky and fun stop, popular among tourists and regular road warriors alike.Legend has it that in the late 1970s, local farmer Ronald Price opened a roadside produce stall, complete with a proudly handpainted sign. Friends of Ronnie mischievously amended the sign to its now infamous title, and convinced Ronnie to turn the stall into a coffee shop-bar for bikers and other travellers.Forty years later, and the quirkiness of the place didn’t end at the sign. Inside, the bar is completely covered with travellers’ graffiti, donated neckties, bras and other random bric-a-brac, ceiling to floor. Ronnies includes a full restaurant, overnight accommodation, communal pool with vista views of famous Karoo sunsets and good old-fashioned peace and quiet from the busy road, with just a touch of good-natured anarchy.ZA Route 62 – Oudtshoorn – Cango Caves & more— Overlandtour (@overlandtourDE) March 2, 2017Route 62: Ronnies “Sex” Shop— Sabine Ludwig (@sl4lifestyle) February 9, 2017Drive Route 62 Western Cape….and leave your name on the wall of Ronnies Sex Shop…best cheese and onion toasties ever…..— Ross Nicholas (@rossrenee1) October 22, 2016The world’s longest wine routeIncorporating hundreds of small, up-and-coming winemakers and larger, more established wine farms, Route 62’s world class wine route centres on the industry’s defacto capital – the town of Robertson – where not only can you visit the Klipdrift brandy plant and see how this South African magic is made, but you get to taste some of the country’s award-winning wines. The town’s annual Wacky Wine Festival (between April and June) is a must-attend event, gathering the best wines of the region for wine fans with a sense of humour and a taste for the adventurous.Just beyond Robertson, the mountain town of Montagu is not only the home of South Africa’s dried fruit and nut industry, but it also has a popular natural spring spa and some of the best rock climbing in Africa.Bestee jou volgende #SaligeSondag op dié pragtige vrugteplaas net buite #Montagu! @MontaguRoute62 #KleinKaroo— LekkeSlaap (@LekkeSlaap) February 19, 2017Take a trip down Route 62 to Montagu and go rock climbing – //— Nightjar Travel (@NightjarTravel) January 13, 2014Friday o’clock means a #brandy tasting at #Klipdrift #Distillery. #robertson #southafrica— The Robertson Small (@Robertsonsmall1) August 14, 2015Cango CavesLocated inside the foothills of the Swartberg range and just outside Oudtshoorn, this extensive limestone system of tunnels and chambers dates back millions of years, and reaches almost 300m underground.Visitors can choose to see the caves as part of a conventional walking tour, or do something more daring in the Adventure Tour.

Predators include leopard, rooikat and jackal.Meerkat Magic, also outside Oudtshoorn, is a one-of-a-kind research reserve, dedicated exclusively to studying the habits of wild meerkats.

LinkedIn Is Trying To Ban The World’s Oldest Profession

first_imgLinkedIn just rolled out a number of changes to its privacy policy and user agreement, informing its more than 200 million members through a notice on the professional network’s website.Most of the changes are simplification of the legalese. But one in particular caught our eye. According to LinkedIn, thou shalt not:i. Even if it is legal where you are located, create profiles or provide content that promotes escort services or prostitution.What surprised us was that this was even necessary. On a site where every action you take is tied to your professional identity, would anyone really take the risk of advertising adult services?Apparently, yes. Prostitution, in fact, is a skill for which you can get endorsed on LinkedIn. (Many self-identified experts on the topic work in law enforcement or religious ministries, suggesting that their experience is with catching or counseling offenders rather than offering such services.)Judging by the suggestions LinkedIn’s search algorithm offers, LinkedIn members are actively looking for this kind of professional help. Search on “escorts,” for example, and LinkedIn will prompt you to search instead for the following terms:female escortsindependent escortscall girlshot girlsadult entertainmentescort servicesdubai escortsThis ban is not completely new. LinkedIn previously forbade advertising “unlawful” services. However, prostitution is legal in some European countries and parts of the United States, and escort services fall into a legal gray area in many jurisdictions.The clarification appears necessary, as some LinkedIn members appear to have been skirting the older terms to offer risqué business.
