Farida Bulega: We need to improve in attacking third

first_imgBulega’s Crested Cranes hammered Djibouti 13 in their opening game on Sunday. (PHOTO/File)Uganda Crested Cranes coach Faridah Bulega says her team needs to improve in their attack and command more possession if they are to return home with the 2019 CECAFA Women’s Championship.The country’s national women’s football team butchered Djibouti 13-0 on Sunday in their opening game, but despite the emphatic victory, Bulega believes they could’ve done more damage.Juliet Nalukenge who was the top scorer in the COSAFA U17 Cup a few months ago, scored five goals while Hasifah Nassuna and Fazilah Ikwaput each notched a hat trickFauziah Najjemba and Amina Nababi were also on the score sheet as Uganda got the convincing win, but Bulega insists a lot needs to be down upfront.“We’ve got our first win. We beat Djibouti by 13 goals which was very good, however, we need to improve on some areas like scoring and ball possessing. Because last time we lost the trophy because we failed to score more goals.“We’ve been working on shooting although we failed to score more goals today. This game could’ve easily ended 25-0. But we shall continue working on our shooting and finishing. We have to make sure that we score from every chance we create because last time we lost the trophy to Tanzania because of goal difference.”In the other group B game, Kenya beat Ethiopia 2-0 to climb into the second position on the log.Up next for Uganda is a contest against Ethiopia on Tuesday, the same day Kenya takes on Djibouti.Comments Tags: Amina NababiCECAFA Women’s Championship 2019Djiboutifaridah bulegaFauziah NajjembaFazilah IkwaputHassifah NassunaJuliet Nalukengelast_img read more

(Image: Brian Mthembu)“Volunteering is the ultimate exercise in democracy. When you volunteer, you vote every day about the kind of community you want to live in.” Marjorie MooreBrand South Africa partnered with Trialogue to host its quarterly Trialogue CSI forum in Johannesburg and Cape Town.The purpose of these forums is to call on all those working in the Corporate Social Investment (CSI) field to collaborate and engage on issues faced in the CSI environment; to extend the initiatives to corporate employees to be active citizens and volunteer their time and skills for the great good of society.“Brand South Africa found an opportunity to partner with Trialogue in order to present our Play Your Part nationwide movement, which intends to inspire and motivate active citizenship in South Africa,” said Brand South Africa’s GM: Marketing Sithembile Ntombela.Trialogue is a business that specialises in social corporate responsibility and has been hosting CSI forums since the beginning of 2013. Held four times a year, each forum provides valuable insights on active citizenship.“As Play Your Part, we showcase how ordinary people and corporates are contributing to society. We unpack the drivers that contribute positively to the Nation Brand and its competitiveness through the movement,” concludes Ntombela.Trialogue director, Cathy Duff, said: “The sessions explore trends in volunteering, local best practice, how the impact of volunteerism can be measured, the types of volunteering support that non-profit organisations are looking for, and how to effectively manage volunteering programmes.”At the forum, Duff shared insights on the research conducted on organisational CSI programmes and employee volunteerism that will be captured in a Trialogue booklet, which can be purchased through the Trialogue website .Despite uncertainty and tougher trading conditions in almost every sector of the economy, corporate South Africa continues to demonstrate its commitment to CSI.

Ohio Ag Weather and Forecast, September 10, 2018

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Dramatic changes to our forecast this morning. After rains moved through the state this weekend, our forecast had been for additional moisture Wednesday through Friday of this week. These changes come completely at the hand of Hurricane Florence. Over the weekend Florence sharpened her course and looks to slow as she heads toward the Carolinas for landfall later this week. A slowing storm over favorable waters for strengthening means Florence can really step up her size and scope. This storm is moving east northeast against a typical weather flow pattern across the northern hemisphere of west to east. Think of a snowplow pushing snow…the more if pushes, the more it backs up the snow in the path ahead of it and starts to push things around to either side. This hurricane will do the same to our weather pattern across the eastern US…it will back things up and slow progression down. For us here in Ohio, that will yield a much drier outlook.So, as a result, even though we still are dealing with some moisture trying to move away out of the area today, we see dry weather the rest of this week, through the weekend and through at least Wednesday morning next week. Today, we will still have to deal with plenty of clouds and scattered light precipitation, more frequent in nature over eastern parts of the state. However, as we approach sunset, action should be done and gone in most areas, and we will be drying out already late morning and early afternoon in western Ohio, even if the sun take its own sweet time breaking through the clouds. For the rest of the week, there are no significant rain threats at this time. High pressure works in by midweek, and then as the pattern slows and stalls, we will find ourselves on the backside of the high, getting good south winds and dry air working in. That being said…as moisture from Florence spreads across the Carolinas into Virginia, Tennessee and even West Virginia, we can see some clouds from that blowing into southern Ohio later this week into the weekend. We don’t think any rain is possible at this time, but will monitor areas down near the river as the hurricane progresses inland.Our next front with good potential for precipitation shows up later next Wednesday afternoon (19th) into Thursday (20th) and may bring up to half an inch of rain to the region. Behind that, for the rest of the 11-16 day period we have only one more system, around the 23rd into the 24th with scattered showers and perhaps a quarter of an inch of rain.Temps will stay cool today and will get back closer to normal for tomorrow and Wednesday. However, for the rest of the week, weekend and first part of next week, we expect warm air to build back in, and we should see afternoon highs running about 5-10 degrees above normal, averaging in the lower to middle 80s. The map at right shows afternoon highs this Saturday. With lower humidity and evaporation rates near maximum levels, we should see excellent dry down later this week through the end of the 10-day period, and we expect harvest should start to increase the farther out we go.last_img read more


520 Bellevue TB hotel – Geocache of the Week

first_imgThere are two things that are beloved by many geocachers: gadget caches and trackable hotels. So what’s even better? A gadget cache that’s also a trackable hotel! If you are a connoisseur of well-designed caches then our Geocache of the Week is a great fit for you. Located next to a strip mall in Bellevue, Washington, 520 Bellevue TB hotel shows how urban geocaches can be a lot more than lamp post caches and guardrail nanos. The cache owner Bounce,bounce is known in the local community for his creative trackable hotels. The cache is located in an unused loading bay. When you approach the cache you might hesitate for a second since it looks much like an electronic installment that’s part of the dock. But when you point your gaze upwards a warning sign reassures you that you’re in the right location.The cache page tells you that you need one of Bellevue’s zip codes (which are five digits) to open the cache, but the lock that stands between you and the logbook only has 4 digits. So your first mission is to identify where to use the code and then find the right one.Once you open the cache you might get sidetracked by the lights and switches. It’s fine to play with them but the cache owner requests that you leave everything the way you found it before you leave. Opening the second door gets you to the logbook and well organized trackable hotel.If you’re in the area and need a place for your travel-weary trackables, check them into this hotel for some well-deserved rest before the next geocacher takes them to their next destination.Continue to explore some of the most amazing geocaches around the world.Check out all of the Geocaches of the Week on the Geocaching blog.
