Aspect back to winning ways

first_img Press Association Condon said: “They went very quick up front and after a furlong she was off the bridle a bit. Ideally she wants seven. We weren’t too disappointed by her run at Royal Ascot, she was drawn in one and it was the wrong place to be on the day. “She is in the Silver Flash Stakes on Thursday, but that will come too soon. She is also in the Debutante Stakes and the Moyglare, but she may have a run before going for them. She may also have to improve to run in those races. She has size and scope and when they have that, they can improve.” Illinois responded well to an aggressive ride from Seamie Heffernan to run out a convincing winner of the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Maiden for juveniles on his debut. Aidan O’Brien’s son of Galileo (2-1) was pushed to the front early on and kicked for home off the turn into the straight, holding the odds-on favourite Warbird by three and a quarter lengths. David Wachman’s three-year-old Bronte (100-30) showed her older rivals the way home as she won the Summer Sunday Family Day On 21st July Handicap from the front under Billy Lee, quickening clear from the two pole to score by a length and a half. Lee said: “She is a fierce consistent filly. She likes to make it but she can be ridden from anywhere and she is improving.” Kevin Prendergast’s 4-5 favourite Dorothy Parker could not have done it any easier in the Fillies Friday Night Out 9th August Maiden, bouncing out in front and staying there without being asked a question by back-from-injury Sam James to score by two and a quarter lengths. The fact that the Dermot Weld-trained Magnolia Ridge was sent off the 8-13 favourite for the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Maiden probably said plenty about the opposition, and he had only to be kept up to his work by Pat Smullen to record a facile victory by five and a half lengths. Sacred Aspect regained the winning thread with an ultimately impressive performance in the Danehill Dancer Tipperary Stakes.center_img Ken Condon’s juvenile (7-1) had previously finished down the field in what might prove to have been a strong renewal of the Albany Stakes at Royal Ascot won by Kiyoshi. Dropped to five furlongs for the first time, she has plenty of talent of her own and although taking a while to hit her stride under Shane Foley, she eventually won going away by a length as she overturned the always prominent 1-2 favourite Abbakova in this Listed contest. last_img read more

Presidential Indaba puts spotlight on youth employment

first_img28 February 2014 Young people from all around the country will get exposure to various career opportunities when the Presidential Youth Indaba kicks in Boksburg, east of Johannesburg on Friday. The four-day indaba will provide a platform for young South Africans to empower themselves. It will also have an expo component to help connect youngsters to job opportunities, career information, scholarships, bursary programmes and enterprise development support. Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe is expected to address 500 youngsters from the country’s nine provinces on Friday afternoon. In April 2013, government, labour, business and civil society signed a Youth Employment Accord, committing themselves to improving the education and training of young people and helping them to find jobs and start businesses. The government committed to increase the number of young people employed in the public sector, while certain industries committed to setting youth development targets. The indaba is a platform to give effect to the Youth Employment Accord as the country grapples with finding solutions to the high unemployment rate, especially among young people. The Economic Development Department will host the indaba at the Birchwood Hotel and Conference Centre, with Economic Development Minister Ebrahim Patel leading the indaba, supported by Performance Monitoring and Evaluation Minister Collins Chabane. The indaba is expected to produce a declaration with resolutions on how, together with young people, all stakeholders can address the issue of youth unemployment. The indaba will form a Presidential Youth Working Group to meet with the President from time to time to appraise him on the progress of the implementation of the indaba declarations and youth development post the indaba. The young people attending the indaba will be expected to work together with various stakeholders to come up with solutions to the socio-economic challenges facing young people in the country, particularly as they relate to jobs and skills. The indaba will also promote social dialogue between the youth, government, business, labour and youth development agencies. Source: SAnews.gov.zalast_img read more

Franka Potente Stars In New ProVegan Campaign

first_imgBourne Identity and Run Lola Run actor Franka Potente has teamed up with PETA Germany for a new ad and video campaign, in which she shares that going vegan three years ago changed her life.“I went vegan for health reasons,” she says in the video. “My choice was to either take medication that I didn’t want to take or change the way I eat. And I love a good challenge, so I walked out of the doctor’s office vegan.”“I felt different pretty much immediately,” continues the German-born Taboo star. “I always had trouble with lingering throat inflammation, and I got rid of that immediately, and my skin cleared up. I slept better.” Now, she’s encouraging others to do the same: “Try it out and see how you feel. If you feel better after a week, try another week.”PETA — whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat” — notes that in addition to the health benefits that Potente enjoyed, other advantages of going vegan include a decreased risk of suffering from heart disease, strokes, diabetes, cancer, and obesity by comparison with meat-eaters. And of course, every person who goes vegan spares approximately 100 animals every year daily suffering and a terrifying death in today’s industrialized meat, egg, and dairy industries.last_img read more

Dont skip that meal

first_imgSummer means this insane desire to skip the heavy foods and gorge on cooling drinks and fruits. All well, but if one doesn’t eat right – chances are that the heat might do you down for the count.  Summer could be a good time to lose the winter weight but don’t skip meals.Dieting or skipping meals never helps an individual to lose weight. Instead, one should eat food items that help lose weight and increase metabolism.  One must note, ginger helps in digestion, salmon is high in proteins, and olive oil help reduces appetite. Femalefirst.co.uk has listed down ingredients that help reduce weight and boost metabolism: Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’Chillies: Experts say eating chillies can help burn energy, hours after a meal.

Nuts make a great alternative to fried snacks. One can add it in the salad also to improve taste.Olive oil: Olive oil contains a compound called oleic acid that is used by the body to create oleoylethanolamide, which helps in weight loss and reduces appetite.
