first_img The votes were cast and shortlist announced before Suarez’s latest indescretion. However, doubts already existed about the Uruguayan’s worthiness as a recipient given he was found guilty of racially abusing Patrice Evra at Anfield in October 2011. The voting structure is also likely to have counted against Van Persie, who has scored five times in his last three appearances, including a title-sealing hat-trick against Aston Villa at Old Trafford on Monday. However, as voting took place in the middle of his 10-match barren streak, during which time Bale scored eight times and terrorised defences at home and abroad, it is likely to have strengthened the Welshman’s support at Van Persie’s expense. Chelsea duo Juan Mata and Eden Hazard are outsiders for the contest whilst Michael Carrick, tipped by Arsene Wenger amongst others, still struggles to convince some of his outstanding talents. Should Bale prevail, as he did in 2011, he will be the first two-time winner since Cristiano Ronaldo. In addition, it would mean Wales had claimed the award for the third time in five years after Ryan Giggs won it in 2009. If the bookmakers are correct, Bale will follow Andy Gray and Ronaldo as the only players to have won both the main prize and the Young Player award in the same season. Aston Villa’s Christian Benteke would seem the most obvious candidate to deny him given the Belgian’s outstanding form in a terrible season for the Midlands outfit. Also nominated are Hazard, Romelu Lukaku, Danny Welbeck and Jack Wilshere. To mark the awards’ 40th anniversary, there is now a women’s category. Scotland’s Kim Little is amongst those nominated in addition to 20-year-old Arsenal team-mate Jordan Nobbs, who scored a stunning debut goal against Italy in England’s triumphant Cyprus Cup campaign in March. Tottenham’s Gareth Bale is favourite to land both major awards at the PFA honours’ night in London on Sunday. Bale has been the inspiration behind Tottenham’s charge for a Champions League spot and is tipped to take advantage of Robin van Persie’s dip in form to claim a prize he also won in 2011. PFA chief executive Gordon Taylor would not be complaining at the outcome as it would deny Luis Suarez the prestigious honour, although the Liverpool forward, who on Friday accepted his 10-match ban for biting Branislav Ivanovic at Chelsea last week, is virtually certain to be included in the Premier League team of the year. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

O’Neal finished with 18 points but Bryant’s brilliance won out again in the end. With Bryant on the bench to start the fourth quarter, the Lakers faltered as center Chris Mihm had a shot blocked and committed a three-second violation. They also had a shot-clock violation and saw their lead sliced to 79-75 as Gary Payton drove the lane for a layup with 9:22 remaining. What happened next was almost predictable. Lakers coach Phil Jackson called timeout and checked Bryant back into the game, guarded by Payton, his teammate for one stormy season in Los Angeles. Bryant buried two long jumpers over Payton midway through the fourth, then nearly tossed in a miracle shot as he collided with O’Neal cutting backdoor. Bryant settled for two free throws and a Lakers lead restored to 84-77. Photo GalleryLakers vs Heat There was closure for Kobe Bryant, starting with a hand offered by Shaquille O’Neal before tipoff Monday night, as well as an introduction for rookie center Andrew Bynum, who most definitely did not back down from O’Neal. There also was a 100-92 victory for the Lakers, their first over the Miami Heat in the four games since the O’Neal trade, with Bryant scoring 12 of his 37 points in the fourth quarter, when his team had to have them. The good feelings lasted all night, except as the Lakers gave back nearly all of a 19-point third-quarter lead. But after not even acknowledging Bryant on Christmas Day, O’Neal did so three times before the game started Monday. “We’ve been though so many wars together and it feels good to kind of be able to enjoy the sweetness of it,” Bryant said, “and now to be able to just move on, for the organization to move on, the city to move on and focus on building this team and wishing him all the best with his team down there in South Beach.” Said O’Neal: “I had orders from the great Bill Russell. He was telling me how rivalries should be. I asked him if he ever disliked anybody he played against and he said never. He said I should shake Kobe Bryant’s hand, let bygones be bygones and bury the hatchet.” center_img Bryant connected on a 20-footer with 1:35 left, Devean George pulled down a big offensive rebound and sank two free throws in the final minute and forward Lamar Odom hit a shot with 19.2 seconds left. “Kobe had a really nice game,” Jackson said. “He played well and seemed in control.” It was yet another nail-biting victory for the Lakers, who have won six of seven games since Bryant returned from suspension. The Lakers (21-17) also had lost all three games to the Heat since the O’Neal trade before Monday. The best fireworks came between O’Neal and Bynum, the 18-year-old Jackson talked about playing against O’Neal from the first game of summer league. Bynum didn’t get the chance on Christmas Day, but did Monday night. It might be all anyone remembers from the game. O’Neal toppled Bynum on a follow-up dunk only to have Bynum take a pass from Bryant and spin past him in the post at the other end for a dunk. With the crowd going crazy, Bynum pushed O’Neal setting up for defense and O’Neal retaliated in full. He grabbed Bynum and clocked him in the head with an elbow, leading to a double technical foul and both players having to be separated. “Shaq used him for a pogo-stick down there on the play previous to that and he kind of collapsed on the floor,” Jackson said. “But he came back with a lot of energy and got a dunk on him. He’ll remember that one for a long time.” LAKERS NOTES: After everything he has gone through in returning from open heart surgery, Ronny Turiaf said he wouldn’t be opposed to heading to the NBA Development League, as Jackson suggested this weekend. But Turiaf also hopes to prove Jackson wrong, that he doesn’t need a trip to the Fort Worth (Texas) Flyers as part of his comeback. The 23-year-old forward is expected to officially sign with the Lakers today, according to his agent, Bouna Ndiaye. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

first_img24 July 2007South African petrochemical company Sasol has become the first in the world to register a project that uses a secondary catalyst to convert the greenhouse gas nitrous oxide into harmless nitrogen and oxygen, which could earn the company significant income through the sale of carbon credits.Sasol said in a statement on Monday that a share of the revenue derived from the carbon credit sales would be invested in local community-based sustainable development projects.A carbon credit – one credit is equivalent to a ton of carbon dioxide reduced – is a tradable permit scheme used as an incentive for countries and businesses to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions.Countries that have signed the Kyoto Protocol have fixed quotas for greenhouse emissions. The protocol’s clean development mechanism allows businesses to generate carbon credits, which can then be sold or exchanged with businesses that have exceeded their quota limits.Sasol Nitro, which commissioned its nitrous oxide emission abatement technology during the first quarter of 2007, expects to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by the equivalent of about a million tons of carbon dioxide a year.According to the company, one ton of nitrous oxide has the greenhouse impact equivalent to 310 tons of carbon dioxide.The technology will be used to reduce emissions at two nitric acid plants in Sasolburg in the Free State province and Secunda in Mpumalanga province.“This is the first time that a project using a secondary catalyst has been registered as a clean development mechanism project in terms of the Kyoto Protocol,” said Sasol Chemical Businesses’ group general manager Reiner Groh.The project offered “significant environmental benefits for Sasol, our local communities and South Africa,” Groh added.Sasol said it had developed the project with assistance from MGM International, a specialist in the development of greenhouse gas emission reduction projects worldwide, and Heraues, a provider of catalyst technology for nitric acid production facilities.SouthAfrica.info reporter Want to use this article in your publication or on your website?See: Using SAinfo materiallast_img read more

first_imgIndia Today Mind Rocks Youth Summit 2012.With an investment of hundreds of crores and years of hard work, the London Olympics were always going to be a watershed event for Indian sport.While some of the heralded names fell by the wayside, there were others who led the way as India reaped its largest medal haul at the grandest sporting stage of the world.At the end of the extravaganza, six athletes engraved their names in the annals of history and became inspirations for the millions of youth in the country.Sushil Kumar, Vijay Kumar, Yogeshwar Dutt, MC Mary Kom, Gagan Narang and Saina Nehwal were already champions in their respective fields but their success at the London Games have made them household names with a large number of youngsters ready to follow in their footsteps.Five of these athletes will be in the Capital on Friday at the India Today Mind Rocks Youth Summit 2012 to share the experiences of their incredible journeys, which saw their dreams turn into reality.Sushil comes from a humble background and excels in a sport that not many parents would like their children to take up. But the humble grappler from Baprola village in the Capital changed the perception after his bronze medal at the Beijing Olympics four years ago.Not one to rest on his laurels and spend the rest of his life reaping the benefits of his Beijing feat, Sushil kept working hard and went a step further in London to become the only Indian athlete to win two individual Olympic medals.advertisementYogeshwar, who grew up with Sushil and trained under the same coach, had a lot of experience but an Olympic medal always eluded him. Things changed dramatically for Yogeshwar in London where he fought three bouts in a mere 45 minutes to win a bronze for the country.Boxing was always thought to be a male-dominated sport until MC Mary Kom arrived on the scene. Her is one of the most inspiring stories as she has fought all the way to win medals at every level.It was for the first time that women’s boxing was introduced at the Olympics and that gave the five-time world champion an opportunity to add another feather in her cap.Mary comes from Manipur, which is mostly in the news for the wrong reasons. But her bronze medal will go a long way in changing the perception of the state and women’s boxing in general.The mother of twin boys had to increase her weight to be eligible to compete at the Olympics as her preferred category (48kg) wasn’t part of the London Games. Not only did she manage to qualify for the Olympics in a higher weight category (51kg), but also returned home with a bronze medal.Shooters were always India’s best bet for medals in London and Gagan Narang opened the country’s account in the 10m air rifle event. It was one medal that the ace shooter was craving for years, having been on the podium at every other stage.Before the Olympics, armyman Vijay Kumar had won medals at the Delhi Commonwealth Games and the Guangzhou Asiad. It was now time to shine on the biggest stage of them all.The Indian finished second in the 25m rapid fire pistol event to eventual gold medallist Leuris Pupo of Cuba but Vijay showed that “hard work always pays off”.last_img read more

I look forward to our bright future ahead.”Joerger was the ninth coach since Adelman was fired in 2006 with none able to post a winning record or a playoff berth. In fact, since moving to Sacramento before the 1985-86 season, the only winning seasons for the Kings came in Adelman’s eight seasons at the helm highlighted by a trip to the Western Conference final in 2002.Divac is now counting on coach No. 10 being the one that can get the team back to the level it had under Adelman, when the Kings were a contender for several years and played an entertaining brand of basketball.ADVERTISEMENT Hontiveros presses for security audit of national power grid View commentslast_img read more
