(PHOTO/Courtesy)KAMPALA – Defending champion FM Patrick Kawuma will start his Rwabushenyi Memorial Championship defense against lowly rated Janice Namiiro Mubiru at Nob View Hotel, Ntinda.In the pairings that came out at 10:00am this morning, Kawuma meets the rated 1321 on board two. The two meet in the opening round of the championship on Thursday, and the FM will hope to easy his way past the youngster.Kawuma, winner of the previous two editions enters the tourney ranked second behind only IM Arthur Ssegwanyi. He will be hoping to become only the second player to win the championship three times. FM Harold Wanyama holds that record with three titles.On board one, the tournament’s top ranked player Ssegwanyi faces Vivian Namaganda, IM Elijah Emojong meets Esther Penninah Nassozi on board three while FM Haruna Nsubuga takes on Safinah Mugide on board four.In other selected games, Kenya’s CM Ben Mangana and WFM Lucy Wanjiru go head to head with Elisha Busingye and Jayson Mubiru Nsubuga respectively.WFM Penninah Nakabo, the top ranked lady in the competition will face off against youngster Marianna Namutebi while WFM Goretti Angolikin takes on Christine Nansubuga and WFM Shakira Ampaire meets Daniel Khauka.On paper, the round is without a doubt a walk in the park for the top dogs. No surprises are expected as all are paired against weak opponents. The contenders are expected to face little resistance on Thursday.Notable missesThe record winner Wanyama decided to sit the event out as he’s busy with work stuff. The FM did not also take part in the competition last year.WFM Christine Namaganda and WFM Ivy Amoko are also among the notable misses. The former travelled to Dubai with her Dove Chess Academy kids to take part in the United Arab Emirates’ 48th Annual Day Rapid Chess Championship.Comments
Danny K paints the walls of the Tlhatlogang. Junior Secondary School CEO of the Nelson Mandela Centre of Memory, Achmat Dangor speaks at the launch of Mandela Day 2012. SA celebrities address pupils. UN officials do their bit for Madiba. (Images: Cadine Pillay) MEDIA CONTACTS • Sello Hatang Spokesperson for the Nelson Mandela Centre of Memory +2711 547 5600 RELATED ARTICLES • Schools to benefit for Mandela Day • Mandela TV series to start production • Mandela archive goes live • Mandela Day now a global eventCadine PillayThe annual International Mandela Day was launched on 23 May with several of South Africa’s most popular celebrities taking time out to roll up their sleeves and fix a partly dilapidated school in Soweto, Johannesburg.Working under the theme “Take action and inspire our youth for tomorrow” they toiled alongside officials from the UN Information Centre (UNIC) as well as employees of several large corporates to get a head start to their 67 minutes for Mandela. South Africans and the world at large are urged every year to spend 67 minutes doing a good deed for someone less fortunate than themselves as a way of observing Mandela Day.Singer Danny K, rapper and presenter ProVerb, model and presenter Bonang Matheba and fashion designer Gert Johan Coetzee painted the walls of two container classrooms at Tlhatlogang Junior Secondary School in White City Jabavu, Soweto. The school was selected by the Nelson Mandela Centre of Memory as the launch venue.The voices of SA“All South African artists have a close connection with Madiba,” said Danny K, referring to Mandela by his clan name. The singer challenged musicians at the launch to give their voices, all the while reminding guests of the vital role young people play in society.“Providing them with an education and a good start in life can help them overcome challenges,” he said.Danny K is also part of the SHOUT campaign, an initiative that raises awareness on issues related to crime in South Africa.Matheba has also been busy with her initiative called “Carry Yourself with Confidence”. Her aim with the project is to reach 6.7 million girls by the end of 2012 across through motivational talks.“I believe that God gives to you so that he can give through you, and that is the message I want to send to young girls,” she said.Addressing pupils, ProVerb called on them to not only engage in their own 67 minutes of good deeds, but to also encourage their peers to do the same.“They should also not just do it for Mandela Day, but carry on to with the spirit of goodwill in their everyday lives,” he said.Sello Hatang, spokesperson for the Nelson Mandela Centre of Memory, said: “We are particularly pleased with the artists who have decided to join us and hope that all their followers will take their lead.”Backing of corporatesLindsey Sherman from Investec, who spoke on behalf of the Companies for Mandela Day initiative, explained the importance and benefits of employee volunteering.She said in the past companies would just do their part on 18 July every year, but that has changed and they have now taken their efforts to include the weeks, even months prior to the day.The Companies for Mandela Day participants have created a system that encourages staff to undertake community service throughout the year.“This mobilises more people and encourages change makers to make their good deeds on-going and sustainable, rather than just once off,” said Nelson Mandela Day Coordinator Frank Meintjies. At least 25 companies form part of the initiative.In some cases the participating companies have gone as far as involving their staff in ‘payroll giving’, where employees agree to a certain amount being deducted from their salaries to go to the community projects their companies support.“This is excellent for sustainability and Mandela Day gives a boost to this on-going work, as well as bringing new employees into volunteer work,” said Meintjies.A global movementSpeaking at the launch, CEO of the centre Achmat Dangor said “Mandela Day is proof that one small step at a time can become a global movement around the world. All that is required is action.”Dangor called on guests to take time out of their lives to inspire change in their communities.“We would like to remind all that the Mandela Day campaign is a call for activism in order to build better communities.”Mandela Day was established in 2009 following the success of the former stateman’s 90th birthday commemoration the previous year. It is now officially adopted by the UN as a day to recognise the man and his efforts towards reconciliation in South Africa.“The aim is to inspire people not just in South Africa, but all over the world to follow by his example and take action,” said Dangor.Last year, the premier basketball league in the US, the National Basketball Association (NBA), will host their second series of basketball clinics in Alexandra, after a successful run in Soweto last year.Another initiative that is driven by Richard Mabaso, founder of Imbumba Foundation will see him climb Mount Kilimanjaro for the first time in July.His efforts are to raise funds and awareness for the education of girls from underprivileged backgrounds across the country.British comedian Eddie Izzard was not to be left behind. He started a marathon race in honour of Mandela earlier in the May at Mvezo in the Eastern Cape.“I will attempt to run 27 marathons in 27 days, as a small tribute to Mandela to symbolise the 27 years he spent in prison,” he said.The marathons will be run all over South Africa in areas of significance to Mandela’s life, including the Eastern Cape areas of Qunu and Fort Hare. In Gauteng they will be in Johannesburg, Soweto, Pretoria and Rivonia, while Cape Town and Robben Island will have their own events. Mandela was imprisoned for 18 of the 27 years at Robben Island.‘Encouraging active citizens’As the emphasis for Mandela Day is being placed on raising youth through decent education, the centre of memory – along with its partners – is driving some of South Africa’s most meaningful initiatives.“We would like to encourage young people to be active citizens by participating wholeheartedly in this campaign,” said Hatang. “There are countless ways to give back and start affecting a positive change for our youth.”The projects were inspired to improve conditions and literacy levels among youngsters from historically disadvantaged communities.The Container Library Project driven by Breadline Africa installs container libraries at primary schools throughout South Africa, benefiting about 1000 pupils.The 94+ Schools Project, initiated by the Department of Basic Education, has identified 94 of the country’s neediest schools for upgrades and refurbishment in honour of Mandela. “The message of giving your time to uplift your fellow citizens is reaching people, and the spirit of volunteerism that has been shown is humbling,” said UNIC Deputy Director Helene Hoedl.“We can only work harder by ensuring that this is more sustainable, and that we indeed make every day Mandela Day.”
The waterfall at the end of “* rivers and lakes”Believe me, I’m not trying to talk you out of attempting a five terrain, five difficulty geocache. I’m just trying to keep you from acquiring any scars or a metal plate in your neck. Geocaches are ranked from one to five based on difficulty and terrain. Five is the most imposing. Let’s be clear — preparation is key. You should known the geocache rating before attempting the cache. The ratings exist for your safety. But, say you’re part of the “Lost & Found” documentary video crew? And it’s your job to produce a video on completing a 5/5?This is one (tall/uncoordinated) Lost & Found video producer’s perspective on one particular 5/5 named “* river and lakes” (GC6982). Completing this 5/5 only really requires three attributes. They are endurance, balance and agility.Lost & Found videographer ReidI sorely lacked two out of the three. I’m a teetering 6’4” with the balancing skills of an unmanned bicycle. My default while falling is to land on my forehead. It’s a precarious landscape for anyone who’s crowning athletic achievement sits atop his refrigerator even now. (It’s a bowling trophy from when I was 11.)The cache owner and three geocachers were all bush-whacking to the cache ahead of us. Lost & Found videographer Reid was capturing the zigzagging footfalls of the geocachers. The terrain we faced for “* rivers and lakes” is a Paul Bunyan-scale crisscross carpet of fallen trees, inches thick ecosystems of green wiggling moss and glossy boulders with the traction of ice.The cache sits inside a U-shaped canyon at the base of a waterfall. It’s a near vertical descent through thorns and an inviting thorn-ridden shrub aptly called “Devil’s Club.” After a half hour, I’ve already realized waterproof boots are waterproof… unless your foot slips three feet into a stream and then the boots become sloshing bags of water.A banana slug named, “Signal”It’s about this time that I think a thorn catches my ear. Suddenly my ear is wet and it’s cold. I think I’m simply in a wonderful form of shock and that I’m bleeding. I reach back to feel the blood. I think, “This can’t be worse.” It is worse.My fingers curl around “something” attached to my ear. I pulled it forward and stared eye-to-antenna with a giant banana slug.I named the slug “Signal.”This Signal was placed gently back into his or her habitat. It’s a relationship I won’t forget though.The geocachers and Reid reached the cache moments later (relatively) unscathed. Then we had to hike back out, the same way. Signal didn’t make a repeat performance. I was left with just a few scratches and memories of a wet and cold kiss from a banana slug.Most geocachers have similar stories. And like the Lost & found documentary crew, they’ll do it again. Why? You tell me. What keeps geocachers going back to the trail?Soon, you can watch the adventures of the hardy geocachers who attempted this 5/5. The Lost & Found video is scheduled to post on Tuesday, September 14th.Share with your Friends:More SharePrint RelatedNear the top of Europe (GC2BVRY) – Geocache of the WeekJuly 16, 2015In “Geocache of the Week””Scuba Geocaching” A Geocaching.com Lost & Found VideoOctober 5, 2010In “Community”Extreme Geocaching in Pictures (and Video)April 29, 2013In “Community”
“Even site owners without programming experience can add these plugins,” writes developer and open-source aficionado Mauro González in Google’s Social Web blog post. “Now that Friend Connect is integrated with these popular open source CMS platforms, site owners can make registration easier for users and offer them a set of social features – all without writing a single line of code.”GFC represents an interesting – and perhaps underused – suite of tools in an increasingly competitive space. Many site owners are adding social features to blogs and sites through systems such as JS-Kit’s Echo or Disqus, and Joomla and Drupal both have many extensions and plugins to allow for the same kinds of features and functions. Still, making GFC available for the CMSes that power many highly visible sites around the Web might do a lot of good for that product.Overall, we see this announcement as indicative of a set of trends: Portable user identities, highly interactive content, portable communities and open-source software.What do you think: Will more site users be integrating Friend Connect to allow for more social website experiences?

Kimberly Hile, Ed.M. & Michaelene Ostrosky, Ph.D.Creative Commons [Flickr, Roots of Empathy Baby Celebration, June 12, 2012]We are sure you have heard the saying, “a parent is his child’s first and best teacher.” For those of us working in the field of early intervention, it is a belief we take very seriously. Early intervention aims to strengthen a family’s ability to support their child’s growth and development. Therefore, parent participation during early intervention sessions is essential. We cannot stress enough the role that parents play on the child’s intervention team. (see more about the importance of parent participation in Bruder (2010)).The Office of Special Education Programs of the US Department of Education (OSEP) outlines seven key principles for early intervention services  with the first two principles highlighting the role of the parent. These principles state:Infants and toddlers learn best through everyday experiences and interactions with familiar people in familiar contexts, andAll families, with the necessary supports and resources, can enhance their children’s learning and development.The first principle addresses the need for all services to be implemented within the family’s daily routines. Young children benefit from repetition when learning new skills. Parents are in the position to ensure that their child has ample opportunities to practice new skills by embedding them throughout their typical day. The second principle supports the idea that parents are more than capable of supporting their child’s development. The primary role of the early intervention service provider is to work directly with the parent to ensure that they feel confident and competent at implementing strategies that will address the child’s individual needs.For families in the military, early intervention service providers need to be aware of the unique needs of each family in order to find creative ways to include deployed parents into assessment, planning, and intervention; being flexible when scheduling visits; and preparing familys for transitions.We’d love to hear how you support and encourage parent participation. Please go to our Facebook and Twitter pages to share your ideas.References Bruder, M.B. (2010). Early childhood intervention: A promise to children and families for their future.

The Maharashtra government has decided to accord the status of ‘adventure sport’ to the centuries old traditional ‘Dahi-handi’ celebrations that mark Janmashthami every year. An announcement in this regard was made by the state education minister Vinod Tawde in Mumbai on Wednesday.Minors aged between 12-15 can take part in the celebrations – which entails forming tall human pyramids of six or more levels – only with the written consent of their parents. The venue will need matting so that there are no injuries after a fall and there will be no limit on tiers of pyramids.”With the status of ‘adventure sports’, we shall form a state-level body to govern ‘Dahi-handi’ with a set of rules and regulations. Any celebrations that do not adhere to this would not be recognised,” Tawde said.Under the new status, it will be mandatory for all organisers of high-profile ‘Dahi-handi’ celebrations to ensure proper insurance for all participants, provisions of first-aid, ambulances to shift the injured ‘Govindas’ to nearest hospitals.Additionally, they must organise safety nets, helmets, safety harness, mats and other security requirements to prevent injuries – and possible deaths – after the human pryramids come crashing down.Tawde said sometime ago, a committee headed by Mumbai BJP president Ashish Shelar was told to prepare a report on ‘Dahi-handi’ and it has recommended to declare it as an ‘adventure sport’ on the lines of mountaineering, rock-climbing etc, which was accepted by the state government.The minister said henceforth, ‘Dahi-handi’ would not be restricted during Janmashthami, but will be celebrated round-the-year under the auspices of a state-level governing body.advertisementJanmashthami celebrations in Mumbai have become an annual big business affair with prizes running into crores of rupees, mega-sponsors, intense competition among various groups, mostly backed by politicians and political parties, attracting millions of locals, domestic and foreign tourists.In the past few years, there have been several casualties, including temporary injuries or permanent handicap and deaths of ‘Govindas’, which led to court cases and questions raised on the safety and security of the participants.
India off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin on Wednesday won the coveted International Cricketer of the Year award at the CEAT Cricket Rating (CCR) International awards 2017.The award was presented to Ashwin by former India skipper Sunil Gavaskar and Harsh Goenka, Chairman of RPG Enterprises, at a function held at the Cricket Club of India.Ashwin was the wrecker-in-chief during the home season, where India won 10 of their 13 Tests played against New Zealand, England, Bangladesh and Australia.Ashwin has taken 99 wickets in the past 12 months.Meanwhile, young batsman Shubhman Gill won the Young player of the year award for his superb performance during the India-England U-19 ODI series, played in Mumbai.Speaking on the occasion, Ashwin recalled that his first autograph which he had taken was from Gavaskar at the Chepauk stadium in Chennai.Ashwin also praised Tamil Nadu offie Washington Sundar for his impressive show in the IPL while playing for Rising Pune Supergiant.”Washington did really well in the Vijay Hazare trophy. I had heard from a couple of people that he is doing well. He has got good idea of how to bowl in T20s and to ball with the new ball is a massive challenge.”The first scar which you will inflict will always have value and he initially bowled well. The pace and the length which he hit was very very critical,” said Ashwin.
