In their opener Saturday morning, a battle of the ‘Queen Cities’, Nelson dropped a 1-0 decision to Helena, Montana in a very evenly matched game and their only loss in the tournament. Helena scored the lone goal midway through the first half on a bending corner kick that beat keeper Liam Guenther.The Gem state squad would go on to win the tournament. Nelson rebounded strongly in their second match of the day knocking off Cranbrook-based Kootenay East 5-1.Nelson opened the scoring six minutes in when Owen Thurston pounced on a rebound following a free kick. Four minutes later, James Miller would add to the lead running on to and converting a well placed through ball in behind the defenders. In the 23rd minute Kootenay East would get one back closing out the first half scoring.The second half was all Nelson as the selects would add three more. Goals coming from Nigel Ziegler (32′), Guus Lammers (43′) and Miller with his second just 5 minutes later. Micah May was keeper for the Nelson side. Game three on Sunday saw Nelson dominate play over Columbia Valley on the pitch yet had to hang on for a 2-1 victory.Nelson missed many scoring chances and enjoyed most of the possession throughout. James Miller scored midway through the first half with Bryce Twible getting another early in the second. Columbia Valley scored their lone marker with a minute to go in the match.Micah May in net once again for the Selects. Nelson would finish the tournament that afternoon against host Flathead, Montana. Ziegler scoring late in the first half to give the selects a 1-0 lead, Flathead responded 10 minutes into the second half before James Miller got in behind the defence and scored the winner with two to go in an exciting finish and another 2-1 win. Guenther backstopped Nelson for the win. Once the Nelson Selects shook off the rust, it was clear sailing to Prince George.The Selects scored a pair of wins over Columbia Valley to capture the Kootenay Provincial B Cup U16 Boy’s Soccer Playdowns Sunday at the Lakeside Pitch.Nelson needed a late second half goal by Micah May to edge the East Kootenay visitors 1-0 in the opening tilt. Nelson dominated the play but had trouble finding the back of the net against the pesky Invermere-based squad.In game two the real Selects show up at the pitch.The first goal came at 14 minutes with Bryce Twible following up on the play and striking home a loose ball after much Nelson pressure. Twible would then feed James Miller two minutes later and Micah May added a third goal at 26 minute.In  the second half Nelson continued going at the Columbia Valley goal but kept missing wide until Twible again would find the back of the net at 69 minute. One minute later Jake Anderson lofted the ball and fooled the Titans keeper from distance. Nelson would get their sixth and final goal one minute after that when Dylan Bennett would flick a free kick toward an unmarked Spencer Szabo who’d make no mistake putting it into the top right corner.last_img read more

first_imgARCADIA, Calif. (Jan. 19, 2015)–Fresh off his most prestigious career win and in search of his fifth consecutive victory, trainer Blaine Wright’s Alert Bay heads a field of 12 older horses bred or sired in California in Saturday’s $250,000 California Cup Turf Classic at 1 1/8 miles on turf.A neck winner of the Grade II Mathis Brothers Mile (turf) on Dec. 26, Alert Bay, a 4-year-old gelding by City Zip, won a pair of Grade III stakes on dirt at Hastings Park in Vancouver, B.C. on Sept. 14 and Oct. 13. Subsequent to that, he shipped to Zia Park in Hobbs, New Mexico, to take the 1 1/16 miles (dirt) Zia Park Derby on Nov. 26.A close third to rival Awesome Return in his only try at a mile and one eighth on turf (Santa Anita’s Snow Chief Stakes on April 26, 2014), Alert Bay bested Awesome Return by 1 ¼ lengths in their most recent dust-up, the Mathis Brothers Mile.Owned by Peter Redekop B.C., Ltd., Alert Bay has good tactical speed and will be ridden back by Tyler Baze. He has earnings of $617,207 from an overall mark of 13-7-4-1.Richard Kritzski’s homebred Awesome Return has been a gem of consistency for trainer Mike Puype since well beaten by eventual Horse of the Year California Chrome eight starts back in the Cal Cup Derby Jan. 25. Never worse than third since, the 4-year-old colt by Decarchy had three wins from eight starts last year, good for earnings of $326,820.A winner of the Snow Chief Stakes last April in his only try at the Turf Classic distance, Awesome Return rallied well from off the pace in the Mathis Brothers Mile and will be ridden back by Kent Desormeaux. With four wins, a second and three thirds from 10 overall starts, Awesome Return has career earnings of $354,780 and rates a big chance on Saturday.Turf specialist Boozer, who disappointed at 5-2 in a one mile turf allowance Jan. 2, is blessed with ample speed and could well be sent to the front by new rider Gary Stevens. Trained by Mark Glatt and owned by Al and Sandee Kirkwood, the 5-year-old Unusual Heat gelding comes off a phenomenal 2014, which was capped by victory in the 6 ½ furlong turf California Flag Stakes on Oct. 18.With all 13 of his lifetime starts coming on grass, Boozer has five wins, two seconds and two thirds, with earnings of $297,742.Jerry Hollendorfer’s G.G. Ryder is another with sharp, consistent recent form. Based at Golden Gate Fields, the 4-year-old colt by Chhaya Dance was second two starts back in the Grade III, 1 1/16 miles Berkeley Handicap on synthetic Tapeta Nov. 30 and he comes off a big gate to wire one mile classified allowance turf win Jan. 1 at Golden Gate. Owned by Hollendorfer and George Todaro, G.G. Ryder has run competitively with both Alert Bay and Awesome Return and gets the services of leading rider Rafael Bejarano.Out of the Storm Boot mare Stormy Gigi, G.G. Ryder has three wins from five starts on turf and is 14-7-2-1 overall with earnings of $215,794.The complete field for the $250,000 California Turf Classic, to be run as the ninth race on a 10-race card with jockeys and weights in post position order: Tamarando, Corey Nakatani, 123; G.G.

Hull 2-2 West Ham: Hammers gifted point in entertaining draw

first_img1 New West Ham striker Enner Valencia celebrates his stunner against Hull Hull’s summer signings enjoyed a brilliant start to their Tigers careers but were let down by their shaky defence as a calamitous own goal gifted West Ham a point in a 2-2 draw at the KC Stadium.Manager Steve Bruce handed first starts to record signing Abel Hernandez and deadline day arrival Mohamed Diame – who lined up against his former Hammers team-mates – and the pair made an instant impact, while both Hatem Ben Arfa and Gaston Ramirez put in positive displays from the benchHernandez first headed home to give Hull a deserved lead, though West Ham equalised shortly after the break through a new arrival of their own, £12million Ecuador striker Enner Valencia finding the net with a stunning long-range thunderbolt.Diame then stunned his former side with a perfect curling finish to re-establish City’s lead, but it lasted only a matter of minutes before Curtis Davies diverted the ball into his own net after a blunder from goalkeeper Alan McGregor.After a slow start, the game kicked into life shortly before half-time and became a thoroughly entertaining tie for the neutral.Hull enjoyed the brighter opening but could only muster a series of half-chances and after weathering the storm West Ham began to threaten.Anti-Sam Allardyce fans may be given some food for thought as the Hammers passed the ball well throughout, with Stewart Downing particularly impressive.The visitors went close to the opener on 35 minutes and were only just denied by a superb save from McGregor.Valencia was provider as he nodded the ball into the box, with Diafra Sakho diverting it goalwards. It looked a certain goal, with Sam Allardyce jumping in anticipated joy, but McGregor swiftly stuck out a hand in a brilliant reaction save to put the ball behind.And the Tigers took advantage of their spared blushes by taking the lead with their next attack, courtesy of record signing Hernandez.The Uruguayan, a £10million arrival from Palermo on transfer deadline day, rose brilliantly to Ahmed Elmohamady’s free kick to head home a debut goal to give Hull a deserved lead at the break.The Tigers were then close to an immediate second, Hernandez hitting the post with an audacious long-range drive and strike partner Nikica Jelavic appearing to double the deficit on the rebound, though the Croatian’s follow-up header was ruled out for offside.The quick pace continued after the restart and West Ham took little time to grab and equaliser, and in exquisite fashion, too, as Valencia hammered in from 25 yards.It was an inspired solo strike from the summer signing, buying time on the ball with a series of shuffles to find the opportune moment to let fly, with his long-range hit thundering into the top corner.But Hull’s heads didn’t drop as Bruce’s men went back in front 15 minutes later when Mo Diame netted what seemed to be an inevitable goal against his former side.After robbing the ball from Aaron Creswell’s poor throw-in, the midfielder opened up his body in the box before seeing his perfectly executed sidefooted strike touch the post on the way in.Again West Ham flew into an instant attack and fortuitously found a reply. Downing’s pass from the right was smashed across goal by Sakho, and after McGregor fumbled the unfortunate Davies ended up bundling the ball into the net.And the Hammers could have snatched a last-gasp win when Valencia’s free header was put over the bar by a point-blank block from Michael Dawson.Despite their obvious disappointment with the result, the point lifts the Tigers up to tenth in the Premier League table while Allardyce’s side sit just below in 13th.last_img read more

Green buildings now the law in South Africa

first_imgAn artist’s impression of the new Menlyn Maine development in Pretoria. When completed, the precinct will be the first in Africa to be climate positive, reducing on-site greenhouse gas emissions to zero(Image: Menlyn Maine) MEDIA CONTACTS • Sidwell Medupe  Department of Trade and Industry  +27 79 492 1774 • Green Building Council of South Africa  +27 21 659 5990/1 • South African Bureau of Standards   +27 12 428 7911RELATED ARTICLES • Absa Campus generates its own power • Nedbank achieves carbon neutrality • Huge savings from green light bulbs • VW builds R500m ‘green’ press shop Emily van RijswijckSouth Africa’s construction industry is set to go green – and create new jobs – when new energy efficiency building regulations come into effect in November, boosting a growing trend of cutting-edge green architecture in the country.From next month, all new buildings will have to use solar water heaters, heat pumps or similar technologies, while ceilings, walls and windows will have to meet minimum requirements in insulation, to minimise heating in winter and cooling in summer. Buildings will also have to be fitted with energy-efficient heating, air conditioning and mechanical ventilation systems.The new regulations are defined in the South African Bureau of Standards‘ SANS 10400 XA standard, and enforceable in terms of the National Building Regulations and Building Standards Act. A higher standard, SANS 204, remains voluntary.Lisa Reynolds, chair of the working group that developed the standards, said SANS 204 will not be compulsory as its stipulations are more rigorous in terms of methods and materials used. “It is the standard the country will be working towards over the next eight to 10 years.”The regulations will apply to all new energy-consuming structures in which people live or work, such as government social housing, schools, office buildings and hospitals. Local authorities will be responsible for the administration of the regulations and on-site inspections.“There are no exceptions,” said Reynolds.Boost job creationIn addition to its environmental benefits, the building standards will also create new job opportunities. Speaking at a South African Bureau of Standards convention in Midrand, Trade and Industry Minister Rob Davies said they would boost the manufacturing sector and contribute towards the government’s goal of creating 5-million jobs by 2020.Davies also said the regulations will have a positive effect on South Africa’s economy as a whole: the installation services industry alone stands to benefit from government’s plan to produce and install 1-million solar water heaters by 2014/15. The solar water heating programme kicked off in 2010 and is managed by state utility Eskom through the SWH Rebate Programme.“If we achieve this, we expect to create around 18 000 jobs,” he said.Green trail-blazersThe new regulations are likely to boost an already growing trend of energy-efficient building design and construction in South Africa.According to the Green Building Council of South Africa (GBCSA), an independent body, the country has seen a massive increase in the Green Star SA rating of buildings. Based on the Green Building Council of Australia’s Green Star rating system, it is the official green certification measure for buildings in South Africa, authorised by GBCSA.A year ago, South Africa had one building with a Green Star rating; this has grown to nine this year with three added just in September alone. The Aurecon Century City Office in Cape Town is the first development to receive a 5-Star rating for its office design, indicating “excellence” in South African standards.Another development gaining attention is Nedbank’s new regional head office at the Menlyn Maine precinct development in Pretoria, which GBCSA awarded a 4-star rating for green office design. This is the third Nedbank building to achieve a four-star rating, joining the Nedbank head office in Sandton, Johannesburg and the Nedbank Ridgeside office development in Umhlanga, Durban. A 4-Star rating indicates “best standards practices”.But the most important aspect of the entire Menlyn Maine project is its highest goal: to become climate positive. Once the full precinct – a mixed-use development of office blocks, shops, and living and entertainment spaces – is complete, it will work toward reducing on-site greenhouse gas emissions to zero.Africa’s first green cityMenlyn Maine is set to becoming Africa’s first green city, one of only 17 worldwide that fall under the Climate Positive Program. The programme, a Clinton Climate Initiative, recognises that while increased urbanisation is inevitable, cities can still grow in “climate positive” ways.Some of Menlyn Maine’s green features include storm water tanks built into the structure and roof of buildings. The water will be treated and circulated for re-use inside as well as outside the building and is expected to provide non-potable water for almost a full year.Recycling is also an essential part of Menlyn Maine. Primary contractor for the development, construction giant WHBO, has recycled 21 968kg of crushed concrete, 17 000kg of steel and 2 740kg of wood on-site, which will be put back into buildings or used in the next phase of the precinct’s bulk earthworks.What is a green building?The GBCSA defines a green building as energy efficient, resource efficient and environmentally responsible. It incorporates design, construction and operational practices that significantly reduce or eliminate the negative impact of development on both the environment and occupants.The council provides the commercial property industry with an objective measurement for green buildings and recognises and rewards environmental leadership in the property industry. Scoring is done in nine categories: management, indoor environment quality, energy, transport, water, materials, land use and ecology, emissions and innovation.A building development can receive either a 4-star rating signalling that it has employed “best practice”; a 5-star rating which recognises “South African Excellence”, or the coveted 6-star rating indicating that the project is a world leader.The GBCSA is a non-profit organisation formed in 2007 by leaders from all sectors of the commercial property industry. It is a full member of the World Green Building Council and the official certification body of buildings under the Green Star SA rating system. It is hosting the annual Green Building Convention and Exhibition from 26 to 28 October in Cape Town.last_img read more
