26 August 2014The Coega Development Corporation (CDC) has announced plans to develop a R2-billion aqua-farming facility on 300 hectares of land at the Coega industrial development zone outside Port Elizabeth in the Eastern Cape.This follows the completion of a feasibility study indicating that local conditions were well suited for the commercial cultivation of marine animals and plants, including abalone, finfish and seaweed, Engineering News reported.“The CDC aims to dedicate 80 hectares to abalone farming by 2020, creating about 2 080 permanent jobs,” CDC agroprocessing project manager Dr Keith du Plessis told Engineering News on Monday. “South Africa is widely known to have of the best abalone and the best product in the world, all of which is exported to the Far East.”Finfish farming on a further 120 hectares of the industrial development zone (IDZ) had also been proposed, Du Plessis said.“Another species that could potentially be farmed is seaweed, which is complementary to abalone farming and can be used for abalone feed and various pharmaceutical uses.”He said the CDC was now advancing the relevant environmental impact assessments.Last month, the government unveiled a plan to unlock the economic potential of South Africa’s oceans, as the first activation of a new initiative, dubbed Operation Phakisa, that seeks to fast-track the delivery of priorities outlined in the country’s National Development Plan (NDP).President Jacob Zuma, speaking at the launch of a “blue economy” working group, said South Africa’s oceans had the potential to contribute up to R177-billion to the country’s gross domestic product (GDP), while creating up to 1-million new jobs, by 2033 – compared to R54-billion generated, and 316 000 jobs created, in 2010.Aquaculture is one of four focus areas that the group – including representatives from the government, business, labour, civil society and academia – is currently looking at as it seeks to deliver action plans for presentation to Cabinet.SAinfo reporter
Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Don “Doc” SandersSome of you may have heard this story from years gone by, but one that is a favorite. Early in our veterinary career my wife, Judy, and I focused totally on building a practice that would provide the best service for our clients, their animals and a positive contribution to the community.It was unusual for new grads to start a practice right out of vet school, so we were determined to prove ourselves by doing just that. We put in long hours while striving for excellence, providing vet emergency service at night and on weekends. We aggressively branded this style of totally dedicated veterinary medicine to our clients. Then several years into our practice we woke up and realized that smelling the roses was also important.For most of our practice career we had the privilege to work alongside several fine associate veterinarians who gained their early career training under our tutelage. As we became more mature (long in the tooth), Judy and I treasured the relationships we developed with various young vets as they matured.Jack is one of these individuals I’ll never forget. He came to us fresh from school — full of the idealism and fire that I also had at graduation. Maybe this is why Jack and I bonded as we did. Jack was very bright but somewhat inexperienced with farming practices and general practice. He worked with us for five years before sprouting his wings of independence, starting his own practice in Virginia.Some of the proudest moments of our career have been seeing a young green veterinarian mature and eventually leave our nest to start his/her own practice. Today Jack has a successful equine practice with three associates.Jack is a second generation Italian-American who grew up in Massachusetts. As Italians are often stereotyped, he held very close ties to his family, and friendships were important. And true to the stereotype, he was ardent in his opinions and spoke intensely about events and issues. But usually he was pretty good at holding his passion in check, even after getting kicked by a cow.Jack and I usually met early in the morning to review the previous day’s cases, and I would spend a little time updating him on current diagnoses or therapy. However, it was a two-way street; he often brought cutting-edge information to me on the latest treatments. When we had time, these discussions often led to philosophical discussions about practice, communicating with clients or the human-animal bond. We became good friends.Clients were usually interested in our lives, especially when we demonstrated our interest in their situation. I still remember one client, long since departed, who kept tabs on Judy and me as we started our family. We have three grown children, two daughters-in-law and five grandchildren. As most of you know after Judy passed away, I am now married to Kristen, widow with three sons, daughters-in-law, four grandchildren, a great-grandchild and two more in the “incubator.”When my daughter, Michelle, was born, this client calculated back and determined that she was likely conceived while Judy and I were attending a veterinary reproduction conference the previous September. It became a big joke that each year we had a child in the month of June; he determined that conception had to have occurred at the same meeting each September.Jack delighted in relaying to us the latest comments of our gestation-calculating client. Of course, I was determined to not let Jack escape retribution for his merriment.When Jack joined our staff, we agreed to his request for two weeks off for his and his fiancée Sally’s fall wedding and honeymoon. Jack was really a special person, so it took no forethought to agree. Sally visited Jack a couple of times that summer. She was such a sweet gal and class act, albeit somewhat naïve.A few days prior to his departure for the wedding at Sally’s home church in New Jersey, I casually asked Jack, “Where are you and Sally going on your honeymoon?” He almost told me, then caught himself. “Oh no, you don’t. I know better than to tell you. You’re up to no good!”It was true that I’d thought a practical joke would be really appropriate since neither Judy nor I could attend the wedding. So, over the next week I tried to get one of our vet technicians to discover their destination. But Jack recognized the red flags and kept mum.He left for the wedding with his secret unrevealed. It was almost depressing. Surely there had to be a way to find out. The frustration only made me more determined to learn their honeymoon location. I wasn’t yet sure what I would do if I did find out, but certainly a scheme would come to me.Sure enough, a couple days later inspiration struck. (Now mind you, this was before 9/11, in a more trusting, less security-conscious time.) I called a friend at the phone company to request a favor. He agreeably checked Jack’s phone calls for the previous month. Four calls stuck out from the rest, which were to Sally or his parents.I dialed those numbers and was connected to hotels on the New England coast. A hotel in Kennebunkport appeared to be where they intended to spend most of their honeymoon. The manager there became my co-conspirator. I sent her a check for a bottle of champagne, which she purchased and slipped in their room while they were out for the day.To top it off, I instructed the manager to put a note, without a signature, on the bottle: “Sally, I still love you in spite of it all.”You can easily get wrapped up being all business-like in life, never stopping to smell the roses or laughing and treasuring family and friends. An anonymous e-mail recently summed it up best: “Life is short, break the rules, kiss slowly, love truly, laugh uncontrollably and… never regret anything that makes you smile!”It was several months before Jack caught me, after my daughter got blabby and spilled the beans. Jack told me the champagne bottle added a bit of mystery to their honeymoon. He knew it was a prank but was certain it couldn’t have been his boss’s doing. He said that Sally was distressed and that she insisted there had never been a man in her life but him.As I recently reflected on these fond memories of our friendship with Jack and Sally, I decided to give them a call. It has been too long.
Jeremy Lin’s big 4th quarter leads Hawks past Wizards, 118-110 FILE – In this Saturday, March 29, 2014 file photo, Cardiff manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer applauds fans after the English Premier League soccer match between West Bromwich Albion and Cardiff City at Hawthorns Stadium in West Bromwich, England. Manchester United announced Wednesday Dec. 19, 2018, they have hired Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as its manager until the end of the season, bringing the Norwegian back to the club 20 seasons after he scored its winning goal in the Champions League final. (AP Photo/Rui Vieira, File)Manchester United turned to a popular former player by hiring Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as manager until the end of the season on Wednesday, 20 seasons after he scored the winning goal in the Champions League final.Nicknamed the “Baby-Faced Assassin” during his time as a United player from 1996-2007, Solskjaer was known for his lethal finishing and ability to conjure up late goals typically as a substitute — none bigger than that close-range winner three minutes into injury time against Bayern Munich at Camp Nou in 1999.ADVERTISEMENT The arrival of Solskjaer did not come as a surprise.Late Tuesday, Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg appeared to confirm Solskjaer was moving to United by writing on Twitter it was a “great day for Norwegian football” and wishing him “good luck keeping control of the Red Devils.” It was later deleted.Minutes after Solberg’s tweet, a page was published on United’s official website containing a video of Solskjaer celebrating after scoring the winner in the 1999 Champions League final. Under that, a post read: “Solskjaer becomes our interim manager, 20 seasons after clinching the Treble with THAT goal at Camp Nou…” That page also was later deleted.The 45-year-old Solskjaer is a sentimental choice as an interim manager — United has said it will look to hire a permanent replacement for Mourinho at the end of the season — and one that should prove popular with fans who have grown weary of watching the team under the pragmatic Mourinho.Solskjaer likes to play an attacking brand of soccer modeled on the sides of Alex Ferguson, who was his manager at United in that trophy-laden decade when the Norwegian won six league titles, two FA Cups and the Champions League. He has said on a number of occasions that coaching United was his dream job.ADVERTISEMENT Is Luis Manzano planning to propose to Jessy Mendiola? TS Kammuri to enter PAR possibly a day after SEA Games opening Solskjaer is a gamble, however. His only previous experience of Premier League management was with Cardiff in the second half of the 2013-14 season, and he could not prevent the Welsh team from getting relegated. He was fired a few months later, ending his spell with a record of only five wins from 30 games.In a coincidence, Solskjaer’s first game in charge of United will be at Cardiff on Saturday.Solskjaer’s playing career ended in 2007 after he failed to recover from a serious knee injury. He scored 126 goals in 366 appearances for United. He remained at the club in a coaching and ambassadorial role, and went on to become its reserve-team manager from 2008-10.He coached Molde — his former club — from 2011, winning back-to-back titles in his first two seasons and then the Norwegian Cup in his third. He returned there after his nine-month stint at Cardiff.“Ole is a club legend with huge experience, both on the pitch and in coaching roles,” United executive vice chairman Ed Woodward said. “His history at Manchester United means he lives and breathes the culture here and everyone at the club is delighted to have him and Mike Phelan back.“We are confident they will unite the players and the fans as we head into the second half of the season.”___Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next View comments Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

Sean Dyche is delighted with Burnley’s resurgence as they secured two wins in a row with a 2-1 triumph at Cardiff on Sunday.Johann Berg Gudmundsson and Sam Vokes were the scorers for Dyche’s men as they recorded consecutive top-flight wins for the Clarets for the first time since April.That win means Burnley are currently up to 12th in the table after a difficult start to the season.“We didn’t look anywhere near how we played last weekend and I reminded the players of that at half-time,” Dyche told Sky Sports.“But that comes with mentality, you have to build mentality. This is a really tough division, we’ve had our fair share of knocks at the beginning of this season, particularly with the overflow of games.“So to come out of that with the mentality we’ve shown with a very good performance last weekend and a fighting performance today was good.Match Preview: Burnley vs Liverpool Boro Tanchev – August 30, 2019 Premier League leaders Liverpool travel to Burnley for the Matchday 4 of the 2019-20 Premier League campaign.“We know that’s the mix we have had to find in the Premier League and we are going to continue to find that.”Cardiff, still seeking their first win back in the Premier League, made things difficult for Burnley in the first half.Dyche added: “It was very difficult coming here, we knew it would be – they put the ball in the box from literally everywhere.“They knocked us completely out of our rhythm in the first half – we couldn’t get a grip of the ball or didn’t deal with it well enough.“We were looking for the balance and, credit to Cardiff, we couldn’t in the first half. They were effective and we couldn’t get a foothold in the game.“As the game calmed in the second half – I had a word at half-time – I was pleased with the reaction. We scored two good goals for different reasons.”
Rangers boss Steven Gerrard has admitted that he didn’t get the reaction he wanted from his Rangers players as they lost further ground in the Premiership title race at Ibrox, adding that they’ve all taken the responsibility together.Speaking to Evening Times Gerrard said:“It was not the result or the reaction I wanted after the weekend.“It was a six or seven out of ten and it wasn’t enough to beat a well-drilled Kilmarnock team.“We knew the onus would be on us to provide the quality. We got the first goal which should have given us a big lift but it never.“We continued to play slowly. It was a frustrating result and a frustrating performance.Owen reveals why Liverpool didn’t offer Gerrard a new contract Manuel R. Medina – September 6, 2019 According to Owen, the Reds wanted to sell Gerrard two years before he left the club and that’s why they didn’t offer him a contract renewal.“I can sit here and protect them all night and take the blame. If that’s what they want then I will.“But, they are Rangers players. They are the ones who have to go out and deliver and tonight they haven’t“We will all take the blame together but they have to take responsibility at some point. It is a concern that it has happened a few times now.“I know the players can play better than this. The performance wasn’t good enough. Two or three really put it in and maxed out for us but the rest weren’t at it.“I thought it was a pretty similar performance to Sunday. Not good enough.“I expected a better reaction. I think the fans deserved a better reaction and better performance and they never delivered it.”
It took crews roughly 1.5 hours, and the individual was brought to safety and the incident was terminated, according to NES. NES responded with Medic 1, Rescue 1, Utility 1, and ATV 1 responded with 7 personnel. The Anchor Point Emergency Services High Angle Rope Rescue Team was requested, and responded with mutual aid assistance with 2 Command Vehicles, Utility 2, Rescue 1, and Medic 41 with 9 personnel.

In a Facebook post, “NES strongly recommends caution along these cliffs as this is not the first time this kind of incident has happened – sometimes with life-altering injuries. The banks along these cliffs can appear deceivingly shallow, but are nonetheless very steep and dangerous, and people are prone to slipping and falling. Also, these cliffs are often weak, especially near the bottom as erosion naturally occurs.” The Alaska State Troopers as well as Alaska Wildlife Troopers and Alaska State Park Rangers responded as well.
