Silva’s far-post cross was forced towards goal by Diogo Jota, with Luxembourg goalkeeper Anthony Moris getting a hand to the ball before Ronaldo turned in from the goalline.– France sign off with win –Later on Sunday, world champions France wrapped up top spot in Group H as goals from Corentin Tolisso and Antoine Griezmann sealed a 2-0 win over Albania in Tirana.“I’m very dependent on the players,” French World Cup-winning coach Didier Deschamps said after his 100th game in charge.“It’s a personal pride. But it’s good to see what the players do together. At times, it can be a bit more difficult with changes to the players, injured players, but the spirit is there.”The French national anthem was roundly booed before kick-off as retribution for the error that saw the Andorran anthem played instead of the Albanian one when the teams met in September at the Stade de France.The visitors made a quick start on the pitch, though, as Bayern Munich midfielder Tolisso headed Griezmann’s free-kick into the bottom corner.The Barcelona star slotted in the second himself on the half-hour mark, before the dead rubber petered out in the second period, with Olivier Giroud going closest to a third by striking the post.The other games in the group saw Turkey, who had also already sealed qualification, beat Andorra 2-0, while Iceland edged to a 2-1 victory at Moldova.England rounded off an impressive campaign with a 4-0 thrashing of Kosovo.Goals from Harry Winks, Harry Kane, Marcus Rashford and Mason Mount ensured England finished at the Group A summit, having scored 37 goals in just eight matches.“We know there is still a bit of work to do but I can’t fault the players in this campaign, they’ve been ruthless. We’re more settled with the group now,” said England manager Gareth Southgate.The Czech Republic are also through, but lost 1-0 in Bulgaria on Sunday.Share on: WhatsApp Ronaldo scores 99th Portugal goal as holders seal Euro 2020 spotParis, France | AFP | Cristiano Ronaldo scored his 99th international goal as reigning champions Portugal secured their place at the Euro 2020 finals on Sunday with a 2-0 victory away to Luxembourg, while France ended their qualifying campaign with victory.Bruno Fernandes struck the opening goal on 39 minutes before Ronaldo tapped in a scrappy second late on to clinch second place in Group B behind winners Ukraine, who drew 2-2 in Serbia.Iranian striker Ali Daei holds the world record with 109 international goals scored in 149 appearances between 1993 and 2006.“All records must be broken and I will beat that record,” said Ronaldo.Portugal became the 17th nation to qualify for next year’s multi-host tournament, which kicks off in Rome on June 12, joining the likes of world champions France, Spain, Italy and England.“We can’t give the match high marks for style,” said Portugal coach Fernando Santos, who admitted the heavy pitch made life challenging for his team.“I’m very happy for my players because the qualifying campaign has been more difficult than we expected.“We’re through to the finals of a major tournament for an 11th straight time. You’ve got to believe in these players.”Portugal knew they would book their place at Euro 2020 with a win or by matching Serbia’s result from their game in Belgrade.But they were made to work hard by a Luxembourg team ranked 96th in the world that notably held France to a 0-0 draw in 2018 World Cup qualifying.Sporting Lisbon midfielder Fernandes broke the deadlock before half-time, controlling Bernardo Silva’s pinpoint pass expertly before lashing in from 20 yards.Ronaldo, who smacked in a hat-trick in Thursday’s 6-0 thrashing of Lithuania, moved to the brink of his international century four minutes from time.

16 May 2008The South African government is to embark on a drive within the next few weeks to ensure that companies listed on the JSE comply fully with employment equity legislation, with the offenders being taken to the Labour Court.Section 43 of the Employment Equity Act empowers the Director-General to assess compliance of an employer against the requirements of the legislation.“We will be conducting follow-ups with these companies in July and August to determine if they have complied with all the recommendations,” Labour Minister Membathisi Mdladlana told journalists in Cape Town this week.Mdladlana’s comments came against the backdrop of the department having reviewed six large employers in 2006 in terms of the review process. These firms were Kumba Resources, which is now called Exxaro, Comair, Omnia Group, Verimak, Medi-Clinic and Prism Holding.He pointed out that a further 60 listed companies would now be reviewed over the course of the 2008/09 financial year.Turning to skills development, he said more than 75 000 learners had benefited from the departmental skills programmes in the 2006/7 financial year, while a total of 54 900 learners were placed in different social development programmes over the same period.The department has also engaged in critical youth employment creation programmes through the Umsobomvu Youth Fund.Last year, the department took Comair Limited to court for breaching provisions of the Employment Equity Act.The department’s Director-General Vanguard Mkosana filed the application with the Johannesburg Labour Court after several warnings against the airline company.According to the application at that time, Comair has been found to be in breach of the following provisions of the Employment Equity Act under various sections.At that time, Comair was ordered to pay a fine of R900 000 as prescribed by schedule 1 of the Employment Equity Act 55 of 1998 and to pay the costs of the application.Source: BuaNews
1 April 2014Cycling and walking are being promoted by the Gauteng Department of Roads and Transport as a viable alternative to motorised transport, helping to reduce congestion and create cleaner and sustainable cities.The Gauteng Transport Commission hosted a cycling indaba in Boksburg on Monday to discuss non-motorised transport infrastructure in the province’s municipalities.There are plans to distribute 3 000 bicycles to scholar transport and to create 5km of cycle lanes in Vosloorus (east of Johannesburg) and 10km in Kaalfontein (north of Johannesburg), Octavia Mamabolo, spokesperson for the Gauteng Department of Roads and Transport, said in a statement. This would help learners get to school safely and in reduced time.Mamabolo said the creation of a “dedicated network of high-quality pedestrian and cycling routes will promote social integration among city residents. Integrating cycling at public transport nodes by making cycling cool through awareness and mind-set change [would also help to promote integration].Integration“Amending relevant technical roads standards and planning requirements will also reduce road deaths, amounting to 40% of road fatalities, which occur at intersections and cost the public health system, police, traffic departments and third party claims to escalate.”The City of Joburg’s infrastructure roll-out programme includes the township of Alexandra in the north of Johannesburg by integrating walking, cycling and public transport.The plan is expected to improve the township’s pavements, and there will also be dedicated cycle paths and safe links to Rea Vaya Bus Rapid Transport system.Mamabolo said the department acknowledged the need to shift to “a new paradigm and policy approach for making non-motorised transport a mode of choice for short distances as well as for recreation.”SAinfo reporter and SAnews.gov
But just when it seemed like the Busmen were running out of ideas, coach Risto Vidakovic sent Tanton and Maher Karic on for OJ Porteria and Kevin Ingreso, which quickly changed the game for Ceres. Unfazed by the 35,000-strong crowd inside one of Asia’s most iconic stadiums, the Busmen walked away with another victory that kept their perfect record after four matches in Group G.The Busmen looked well-placed to top the group as they have opened up a five-point gap ahead of Becamex Binh Duong of Vietnam with two matches remaining.

Twitter/@Charlie_BurrisThe Texas Longhorns are in full meltdown mode. Following back-to-back awful losses due to special teams gaffes, the Longhorns are losing to TCU 50-7 late in the fourth quarter. During halftime, freshman cornerback Kris Boyd retweeted a message about transferring to Texas A&M, and now the Texas Rangers are jumping on the “Fire Charlie Strong” bandwagon. Or, at least one rogue social media manager is upset about the game, and was on the wrong Twitter account.Hey, what did I ever do to you @Rangers? pic.twitter.com/5OgWkUOVMi— Charlie Burris (@Charlie_Burris) October 3, 2015The tweet was deleted very quickly, but not before the internet captured it for all of eternity.

OTTAWA – Alberta Premier Jason Kenney says if the federal bill overhauling environmental assessments passes in its current form it will threaten Canadian unity and there will be “an immediate constitutional challenge.” Kenney is at the Senate energy committee Thursday morning to talk about Bill C-69, which he calls the “no more pipelines” bill.He is telling the committee the bill flagrantly violates Alberta’s constitutional right to regulate its natural resources.Premier @jkenney says he believes his conversation with Prime Minister @JustinTrudeau will be polite but says he will warn the PM that national unity could be at risk if the federal pipeline/energy plan is implemented as is #cdnpoli pic.twitter.com/e1SBwCcf64— Cormac Mac Sweeney (@cmaconthehill) May 2, 2019The legislation establishes a new process for reviewing major projects with a national scope or in federal jurisdiction.The federal Liberals say it is needed to restore confidence in the assessment process and finally get big projects built, but critics say it gives too much political power to the federal cabinet.Thursday afternoon, Kenney is to meet face-to-face with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, the political foe he attacked relentlessly in his successful bid to become Alberta’s premier.
