Jongi Nokwe finishes off nice Cheetahs team try vs Western Province

first_imgThursday Sep 2, 2010 Jongi Nokwe finishes off nice Cheetahs team try vs Western Province Despite an early start to the Currie Cup, Western Province have now lost two on the trot, first to the Sharks, and then this past weekend going down 29-24 to the Cheetahs. It was a good win for the visitors, with this try being the best from the match at Newlands in Cape Town.This week there wont be a best tries mix from the Currie Cup as in all honesty, there werent that many amazing tries scored. I figured this was the best from this particular match though, as it had some wonderful handling and support play from all the guys involved.The Cheetahs put pressure on WP all night with their rush defence, and as you can see here, the policy of staying in their faces reaped rewards.“It was special, especially because it was at Newlands,” said coach Naka Drotske.“Weve lost matches this season this season that we could have won so Im very glad were pulled this one through. Discipline was important, and it was something we knew because they have a kicker like Willem de Waal.”A Frikkie Welsh fumble allowed Sevens star Robert Ebersohn to draw in a couple of tacklers and free up Meyer Bosman, who combined nicely with Kabamba Floors (pictured above) before the support arrived, eventually allowing rapid winger Jongi Nokwe to stroll over for a neatly taken try.

After many years of having designed the Fasano Hotel in the Jardins Neighbourhood, we were invited to design the interiors of Fasano’s new mixed-use development in the Itaim region.

The single tower of four suite apartment has its interiors designed by Studio MK27. We strived to keep the identity and heritage of the Fasano brand as we designed this project, located in an increasingly dynamic, youthful neighborhood.Save this picture!© André KlotzThe use of natural materials such as slate shard floors, wooden strip ceiling, and walls covered with walnut panels generate a cozy atmosphere in the apartment.

Modern pieces of Brazilian design such as the Pétala coffee table by Jorge Zalszupin are mixed with contemporary counterparts such as the dining table by Jader Almeida and the international classics such as Isamo Nogushi’s floor lamp, Finnish architect Alvar Alto’s floor lamp, and the light pendants over the dining table by the American architect George Nelson.Save this picture!© André KlotzThe continuous circulation around the apartment follows the same vibe as the materials and is punctuated by some sculptural sconces.

Guide Dogs launches Spring cash appeal

However, with each partnership costing approximately £35,000 and a guide dog’s working life limited to around seven years, we urgently need funds to enable us to help more people.”“This campaign satisfies the emotional and rational needs of Guide Dogs’ donors, said Sarah Don-Bramah, Account Director at TDA. “We know that the charity’s supporters tend to be dog owners themselves – they love to hear about the remarkable partnerships between partially-sighted or blind people and their guide dogs, but a solid case is required to prompt them to give an extra cash donation. Lora’s positive attitude and plans for her future will resonate well with the target audience.”The mail pack will be sent to existing supporters only and includes a ‘thank you’ gift of a bookmark featuring photos of Lora and Libby.

At the start of January2009, the information and communications ministerannounced that the government was goingto invest 500 million baht (1.1 million euros) toput in place a national filtering systemto block websites hostedabroad that could damage themonarchy. Since December 2008,the ministry has decided to stepup the fight against the crime oflese majeste online. More than4,000 websites have beenblocked since the start of 2009.However, official sources say that only 4,800pages have been blocked for this reason sinceMarch 2008.Under the Cyber Crime Act, adopted in 2007,police can seize computer equipment of peoplesuspected of sending message containing insultingor pornographic content. The crime oflese-majeste did not appear in this law. But atthe start of 2009, an amendment was addedproviding for prison sentences for anyone suspectedof the crime of lese-majeste so as to increasesentences in cases of “defamation”,“insult” or “threat to the monarchy”.Almost a score of people are currently facingcharges of this crime because of their articlesposted online.

TREKSTOR Donates 100.000 FFP2 Respirators to Tafel Deutschland e.V.

first_img TAGS  Pinterest By Digital AIM Web Support – January 28, 2021 Facebook Twitter WhatsApp Facebook BENSHEIM, Germany–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Jan 28, 2021– Today the TREKSTOR GmbH, the manufacturer behind the blnk branded healthcare products, completed delivery of 100.000 FFP2 class respirators to the Tafel Deutschland. This is a reaction to the increased demand for certified PPE products created by both decisions of the federal government as well as the FFP2 mandate active in the state of Bavaria. This press release features multimedia. View the full release here: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20210128005522/en/ A volunteer at Tafel Bayern takes possession of and inspects the donated FFP2 respirators. (Photo: Business Wire) „As a German company, which mainly exists today due to the sales of entry-level PCs and tablets to price-sensitive customers in the past, we are aware of our responsibility to our fellow citizens“, Shimon Szmigiel, CEO of TREKSTOR, explains. „Many of them are lagging the financial prowess to purchase high quality protective equipment, a state that is worsened by lay-offs and short-time work arrangements.” Therefore, TREKSTOR decided on short notice to donate 50.000 packs containing 2 pcs of its own blnk brand model BL-03N FFP2 respirators, which are normally sold to government, hospital and care facilities. As do all FFP2 respirators, it filters ≥94% of particles, in the COVID-19 relevant comparison with NaCL, the masks even performed above the 99% mark. „The selection of Tafel Deutschland as our partner was very easy“, adds Shimon Szmigiel. This is due to existing infrastructure and experience when it comes to distributing food, which makes the Tafel to a unique distribution network. Based on the agreement, the respirators were delivery to a central warehouse in Nurnberg and will from there be distributed to the 168 locations in Bavaria according to demand. Jochen Brühl, Chairman of Tafel Deutschland: „We are delighted for this wonderful support. People in poverty are especially affected by this crisis. As important as the mask mandate is, it is a financial burden for poor people. Around 1.6 million people rely on our food banks, among them 430.000 retirees and up to 500.000 children and youths. The donation by TREKSTOR helps them to protect themselves while also relieving some of the financial pressure. For that, we are very thankful.“ TREKSTOR is aware, that this donation is literally only a drop in the ocean, which is why Shimon Szmigiel appeals to all other businesses: “If you are active in the same areas we are – or if you are not, take heart, temporarily forget about profit, and do something good.” About TREKSTOR / blnk Healthcare TREKSTOR, known as one of Europe’s leading consumer electronics manufacturers based in Bensheim, Germany, has been active in the healthcare space with its brand blnk starting March 2020, helping to stop the spread of the virus via face masks, disinfectants and other protective equipment. The company is selling equally to government institutions and the army alongside direct sales to care facilities, hospitals, pharmacies, and end-consumers. About Tafel Deutschland e.V. The 950 charitable food banks in Germany collect impeccable surplus food from retailers and manufacturers and distribute it regularly to more than 1.6 million poor people across the country. In doing so, they create a balance between waste and poverty.

Index for Pending Home Sales Hits Two-Year High

first_img Aly J. Yale is a freelance writer and editor based in Fort Worth, Texas. She has worked for various newspapers, magazines, and publications across the nation, including The Dallas Morning News and Addison Magazine. She has also worked with both the Five Star Institute and REO Red Book, as well as various other mortgage industry clients on content strategy, blogging, marketing, and more. Pending home sales rose for the third straight month in March, and according to the National Association of Realtors (NAR) Pending Home Sales Index, they’re at their highest point since June 2013.The index, an indicator of sales based on contract signings, was released this morning. It showed a 1.1 percent increase in pending sales for March and an 11.1 percent increase over the same time last year. This marks the third month in a row the sales have risen and the seventh year that pending sales numbers have improved.The Pending Home Sales Index was at its highest point in June 2013, coming in at 109.4. As of March, it has now reached 108.6, its peak since that time.The index also broke down pending home sales by region. While the South and West saw an increase of 4 percent and 1.7 percent for March, respectively, the Northeast and Midwest saw drops, decreasing by 1.5 percent and 2.5 percent.All regions were up over March 2014. The Northeast rose .6 percent, the Midwest was up 11.3 percent, the West jumped 15.6 percent, and the South increased 12.4 percent.As for explaining the ever-increasing sales, Lawrence Yun, chief economist at NAR, attributes it to a competitive spring market and an improving number of long-term homeowners.“Demand appears to be stronger in several parts of the country, especially in metro areas that have seen solid job gains and firmer economic growth over the past year,” Yun said. “While contract activity being up convincingly compared to a year ago is certainly good news, the increased number of traditional buyers who appear to be replacing investors paying in cash is even better news. It indicates this year’s activity is being driven by more long-term homeowners.”Yun also said he expects sales to continue improving over the next few months, but that supply and rising prices could hinder them slightly.“Demand in many markets is far exceeding supply, and properties in March sold at a faster rate than any month since last summer,” he said. “This in turn has pushed home prices to unhealthy levels — nearly four or more times above the pace of wage growth in some parts of the country. Simply put, housing inventory for new and existing homes needs to improve measurably to improve affordability.”See the index at Realtor.org.

There’s a lot of old rules that were applying to banks that we should strip away. We should just trust that Wall Street and the banks will act in their own self-interest and not do silly things like lend to people who can’t pay for their mortgages, because ultimately that will crater the system.’ It’s kind of like that scene in Animal House where Otter goes, ‘You messed up, you trusted us.’ Well, that’s exactly what happened. They just got away from themselves and trusted that values would always go up, and therefore it doesn’t matter whether somebody can pay because they will always have a way out.”April showed an increase in new home sales but a decline in existing home sales, prompting Bohannon to ask Rood about the “housing sales roller coaster.” Rood said a lack of inventory was partly to blame for the flat existing home sales, but also the fact that millions of underwater homeowners do not have enough equity built up to cover the transaction costs of selling and then moving into another property, so they “feel kind of trapped and there just isn’t a lot of upward pressure from the demand side to make that change.”Click here to hear Rood’s interview with Bohannon.
