A single goal might not sound unusual or special, but it was. The freshman scored to give Mayfield its first victory over Poly in 15 years. The win moved Mayfield up into a tie for second place, and in the hunt for a playoff spot.Mayfield Coach Calum Torrie: “Daria Young collected a pass and ended up the line toward the Poly goal. She cut inside and passed to Nadia. Nadia still had a bit to do, but she beat her defense, and then coolly slotted by the on-rushing goalkeeper from an acute angle, and from about 12 yards (out). The goal was huge for us this season, as it propelled us into a 4-way tie for second place. It was also a huge weight lifted after 15 years of ties, large defeats and close-fought losses. The messages coming in have been unbelievable. I have been there for all 15 years of the hurt.”Prep League Standings:Flintridge Prep (16-3-3 overall, 5-1-1 in league)Poly (13-4-3, 4-2)Westridge (10-3-1, 3-2-1)Mayfield (5-5-4, 2-2-1)Chadwick (2-8-1, 2-3-1)Firebaugh (1-10-2, 0-6)Remaining Schedule:1/31: Mayfield at Westridge at 3:152/1: Westridge at Mayfield at 7:302/3: Mayfield at Flintridge Prep at 62/7: Mayfield at Poly at 32/8: Mayfield at Firebaugh at 3:15center_img Community News Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy First Heatwave Expected Next Week Name (required)  Mail (required) (not be published)  Website  EVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDS faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Virtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes Make a comment top box 9 Girls Athlete of the Week: Nadia O’Reilly of Mayfield Senior School Published on Sunday, January 29, 2017 | 12:26 am Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadenalast_img read more

Leonard Fournette leads No. 8 LSU to 34-24 win over Syracuse

first_imgLeonard Fournette started what could have been the theme of a blowout Syracuse loss. Ron Thompson had wrapped up LSU quarterback Brandon Harris, who pitched it to Fournette moments before his knee hit the turf.The 230-pound running back barreled past midfield and down to the 15-yard line, a 50-yard run that just moments before looked like at least a 5-yard loss. Until that point, SU’s defense had done a good job of gang-tackling the Heisman Trophy candidate to the tune of 17 yards on four plays.Fournette got up and pounded his chest. His biggest play seemed destined to be the breakout play. The start of the inevitable.Instead Syracuse’s defense continued to rise to the occasion. LSU had only seven first-half first downs. Whenever a big play seemed to turn the tide, a flag would bring it back. But against LSU, even SU’s best effort wasn’t enough, as the Orange could only punch back so many times in a 34-24 loss to LSU on Saturday in the Carrier Dome.The Tigers opened up the second half with 10 straight points. The last seven of them were on a 69-yard punt return from the booming foot of Riley Dixon. The kick went so deep that Tre’Davious  White was able to find space in the return coverage.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textBut quarterback Zack Mahoney and Syracuse came back with their most fluid drive of the afternoon. A 15-yard penalty on LSU got the move started. Two plays later, Brisly Estime had the ball drop into his hands at the tail end of a 40-yard touchdown.But Fournette, who had more than 200 yards for the second straight game, once again squandered SU’s chances. He burst through the defense for 62 yards. Two SU defenders trailed just yards behind him as he sped into the end zone, slowing up only as he took his final step to make the spread 14 again.In total Fournette ran for 244 yards on 26 carries, reaching the end zone twice.Mahoney continued his second-half resurgence into the fourth quarter when the Orange once again sliced the lead in half to 24-17. But on a third-and-9 on the ensuing LSU possession, with Fournette on the sideline, Harris hit Travin Dural — who had left SU cornerback Julian Whigham steps behind him — for a 51-yard reception. Whigham was left flat-footed on the next play too, as Malachi Dupre hauled in a touchdown in the right corner of the end zone.Syracuse had been impossible to put away all day. In a game when it could have happened quickly and painfully, the Orange found ways to make it close. But the final blow was too big to come back from, and Syracuse lost its first game of the season.    Comments Published on September 26, 2015 at 3:44 pm Contact Sam: [email protected] | @SamBlum3 Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

DESPITE THE BIG CHILL AND DODGY ROADS, CHRISTMAS EVE SHOPPERS HIT THE STREETS

first_imgAFTERNOON UPDATE: IT IS another numbingly cold day in Donegal – but shoppers are out in force this afternoon in a last-minute Christmas Eve dash.Retailers in all the major shopping towns are reporting brisk trade, although it isn’t as busy as it normally would be.Road conditions are particularly poor this morning in and around Ballybofey, Glenties, Cardonagh and Ardara. Gardai have said today that motorists should avoid the Barnesmore Gap if possible as overnight salting has failed the crack the ice. At 9am this morning temperatures of -15C are being recorded.Yesterday evening there were tailbacks in a number of towns, with delays reported in Buncrana, Letterkenny and Donegal Town.It is the same today – with some congestion around Letterkenny Shopping Centre, the retail park and on Main street.Retailers could do with the last minute boost – trade has been dreadful thanks to the shocking state of our roads in the past week. And they aren’t much better this morning as overnight temperatures recorded by donegaldaily.com sank to an incredible -16C.There are fears that the weather will hit Christmas religious services as people throughout the county attend services tonight and tomorrow.The bad news is that more snow could fall over Donegal on Christmas Day tomorrow before the thaw arrives late on Sunday.Donegaldaily will keep you posted throughout the festive period.DESPITE THE BIG CHILL AND DODGY ROADS, CHRISTMAS EVE SHOPPERS HIT THE STREETS was last modified: December 24th, 2010 by gregShare 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)last_img read more

Kurtenbach: The big difference between Derek Carr and Jimmy Garoppolo heading into prove-it Week Two games

first_imgBoth of the Bay Area NFL quarterbacks turned in bad Week One performances.Both faced elite defenses. Both were let down by their supporting casts, to varrying degrees, up front and out wide. Both threw three interceptions.But there is a big difference between 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo’s poor game against the Vikings and Raiders quarterback Derek Carr’s poor performance against the Rams, and that difference is why I’m betting on Garoppolo to bounce back in Week Two and why I’m not …last_img

Radio in South Africa

first_imgRadio services are broadcast in all 11 official languages, as well as in German, Hindi, Portuguese and the San Bushmanlanguages of !Xu and Khwe. (Image: MediaClubSouthAfrica.com. For more free photos, visit the image library)Cheap, portable and requiring no literacy, radio has long been the most accessed form of media in South Africa, reaching beyond urban centres deep into the poorest and most remote rural areas. There is one radio set for every five South Africans: an estimated 10 million radios (and listeners many times that number) in a population of some 48 million.Programming is dominated by music – contemporary, traditional, gospel and classic – but includes phone-in talk and current affairs, as well as local news and information broadcast on the country’s community stations.All 11 of South Africa’s official languages get airtime, as well as German, Hindi, Portuguese and the San Bushman languages of !Xu and Khwe.South African radio falls into three broad categories:public service radio broadcast by the state-owned South African Broadcasting Corporationcommercial radiocommunity radioRadio is available on the airwaves, via satellite and on the internet. Live audio streaming from most stations is provided by AntRadio.Regulating the industrySouth African broadcasting is regulated by the Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (Icasa). Icasa’s mandate is to:issue broadcast licencesensure universal service and accessmonitor the industry and enforce compliance with rules, regulations and policieshear disputes brought by industry or members of the public against licenseesplan, control and manage the frequency spectrumprotect consumers from unfair business practicesIcasa websiteThe National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) is a non-profit grouping of organisations and individuals working in broadcasting and related industries. NAB helps the industry regulate and promote itself, grounded in the principles of democracy, diversity and freedom of expression.National Association of Broadcasters websiteThe Broadcasting Complaints Commission (BCCSA), set up by NAB in 1993, adjudicates and mediates complaints against any broadcaster who has signed its code of conduct.The BCCSA is entirely independent of NAB and broadcasters, with commissioners appointed by an independent panel, chaired by a retired judge of the Appellate Division of the Supreme Court.Broadcasting Complaints Commission websitePublic service radioThe country’s public service broadcaster is the South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC). While wholly owned by the state, the corporation is financially independent of taxpayers’ money, deriving its income from advertising and licence fees in a ratio of four to one.The SABC’s mandate is to provide both a commercial and public service, each administered separately, with commercial radio stations subsidising the public service stations. The corporation’s commercial stations include 5FM, a national youth music station, Metro FM, a music station targeting black urban youth, and Channel Africa, which broadcasts across the continent in a number of languages.The corporation’s public broadcasting arm includes cultural services in all 11 official languages, as well as stations for South Africa’s Indian (Lotus FM) and San (X-K FM) communities. By far the largest radio station in South Africa is Ukhozi FM, the SABC’s isiZulu cultural service, with 6.38-million listeners a week.SABC websiteCommercial radioIn the apartheid era South Africa had only two independent radio stations: Radio 702 and Capital Radio. With the deregulation and liberalisation of broadcasting in the late 1990s, the number of commercial stations operating outside of SABC control proliferated.In 1996 six lucrative SABC stations were privatised: Gauteng’s Highveld Stereo and Radio Jacaranda, KwaZulu-Natal’s East Coast Radio, the Western Cape’s KFM, the Eastern Cape’s Radio Algoa and the Free State’s OFM. The government raised over R500-million as the stations were licensed to various black-controlled groups.In early 1997 eight new commercial radio licences were granted for broadcasting in South Africa’s three biggest cities – Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban.Applicants targeting black audiences with new formats were generally favoured, with two “smooth jazz” licences, Heart 104.9 in Cape Town and Igagasi 99.5 in Durban; one urban youth station, YFM; and one urban contemporary station, Kaya FM. The remaining four licences went to an English-language talk station, Cape Talk; two Afrikaans talk stations, Punt in Cape Town and Durban; and a classical music station, Classic FM.Community radioFrom 1992 onwards, Icasa processed hundreds of community radio licence applications from groups as diverse as rural women’s cooperatives, Afrikaans communities and religious bodies.South Africa now has over 200 community stations, broadcast in many different languages. Their scope and reach varies enormously – from the half-a-million Johannesburg residents who tune in to Jozi FM to the thousand or so people who listen to Ilitha Community Radio in the Eastern Cape town of Maclear.Community radio struggles to access financing in the form of advertising, so it is dependent on local and international donor agencies and the government for its finance. This has a certain impact on its impartiality and independence.Nonetheless, community radio remains important for entrenching democracy at local level, as well as helping spread education and community spirit. It is a crucial part of the South African broadcasting landscape, providing diversity for listeners and much-needed skills for the commercial radio sector.Do you have queries or comments about this article?
