Usain Bolt’s name will always live on.”Bolt missed out on his bid to retain his 100m title earlier in the week, losing out to Gatlin and silver medalist Christian Coleman, who ran relay anchor for the Americans on Saturday.But hopes were high for Bolt’s final competitive race, with Jamaica also boasting McLeod, Forte and 2011 world champion Yohan Blake in their line-up.ADVERTISEMENT Ai-Ai delas Alas on Jiro Manio: ‘Sana pinahalagahan niya ang naitulong ko’ Marcosian mode: Duterte threatens to arrest water execs ‘one night’ Jamaica were afforded a rousing welcome from the crowd, a relaxed-looking Bolt applauding the stands, with pictures of him constantly shown on the stadium’s big screens.Gatlin, who has served two doping bans, and the US team also including another convicted doping cheat, Mike Rodgers, and Jaylen Bacon were booed when introduced although the jeering was less pronounced than for the individual 100m event.A close first three legs saw Britain, the United States and Jamaica, seeking a fifth consecutive world title, level-pegged for the final leg.High dramaBut there was to be high drama as a visibly swearing Bolt pulled up in obvious pain, allowing the Japanese quartet to edge in for third.The result means Bolt, 100 and 200m world record holder, finishes his career with 14 world career medals, one behind American Allyson Felix, to go with eight Olympic golds.Amid wild home celebrations, Bolt was attended to by medics, but refused a ride in a wheelchair off the track, instead finally getting up and limping alongside his teammates through to the finish line and then off into the bowels of the stadium for treatment.It was a sad exit for an athlete who has lit up the track when the sport has been dragged through its worst-ever crisis, racked by doping and corruption scandals that went to the very heart of athletics’ governing body.And what a gaping hole his absence will leave, no matter how brave a face the IAAF try to put on it.Since confirming his sprinting dominance with triple gold at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, Bolt spent nine seasons amassing 19 global golds, 13 of which have come in individual events. 2 nabbed in Bicol drug stings Teen gunned down in Masbate 787 earthquakes recorded in 24 hours due to restive Taal Volcano Allied with a charismatic personality, it has guaranteed Bolt recognition as one of the world’s most successful sportsmen.

The United Nations Mission for Ebola Emergency Response (UNMEER) Special Representative to the Secretary General (SRSG), Ismail Ould Cheikh Ahmed, has called on the Liberian government, as well as other Ebola-affected countries, for regional collaboration to battle the Ebola Virus Disease (EVD).The UNMEER SRSG made the call yesterday January 7, 2015 at the James Spriggs Payne Airport in Monrovia while addressing the press following his visit from Grand Cape Mount County.According to him, Liberia has made great progress in the fight against the deadly virus, but said that a lot needs to be done. He called on health authorities of Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone, the three hardest hit Ebola-affected countries in West Africa, to carry on regional collaboration by handling Ebola matters in a unique way that could eradicate the killer virus.He asserted that his vision is that the governments of the three countries take the eradication of the virus seriously, making it a government-led effort while coordinating with international partners, which could be another means to ensure success in eradicating the killer disease. The SRSG extended thanks to Liberians from all walks of life, lauding them for their effort and determination in the fight against the virus and urging everyone not to be complacent but to continue the preventive measures as put in place by health authorities.Also extending personal thanks to the government and citizens of Liberia, was the UNMEER Special Envoy of the SRSG on Ebola, David Nabarro, who highlighted the progress that has so far been made against the disease. He disclosed that the lives of Ebola survivors have been bad; adding that there is a need to provide more support for survivors in the country.“It’s time to look for where there is a case to fight against the virus by involving into super engagement because it is very significant and will help to eradicate the virus from Liberia,” he cautioned.Adding his voice to the press conference, World Health Organization (WHO) Assistant Director General, Bruce Aylward, frowned on the complacency of Liberians in the fight against the EVD, especially following the reduction of cases. “There is still Ebola in Liberia and people are not acting the way they should, in order to eradicate the virus from the country, they are forgetting to know that the huge progress made cannot get the virus to zero.”He thanked the government in the fight against the virus, but said that the people of Liberia are no longer going by the preventive measures in the fight against the killer disease, adding that it is the best time to fight because the virus is very dangerous and it takes a single person to destroy the entire the country.WHO Aylward called on the media to join the fight against the virus, noting that “If the media fails in the fight, the government also fails in eradicating the virus. And so serious action needs to be taken in this fight.”For his part the Incident Management Director, Tolbert Nyenswah, disclosed that there is no funding for Ebola survivors but that the government is seeking for support from partners in order to maintain Ebola survivors.He said the government is making efforts to keep the survivors safe and has organized the Survivors Network in order to keep in contact with them and provide more support to through international partners.“There is no funding for Ebola survivors yet but UNICEF is providing more support for the Ebola affected children in the country,” he added.Following Tolbert Nyenswah disclosure, UNMEER SRSG said his organization will design a program that will focus on the support and sustenance Ebola survivors.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORE11 theater productions to see in Southern California this week, Dec. 27-Jan. 2The memories and medals weren’t something they were ashamed of. On the contrary, they were proud. But they didn’t want to talk about them – even to their own wives and kids. People might think they were trying to be heroes – but they knew the truth, said Berger, sitting next to Grohowski’s wheelchair and sharing old memories with a new friend. “The real heroes are the men who are buried there,” said Berger, a Reseda man who has returned to Normandy twice over the last six years for D-Day commemorations. The country should never forget this day, both men say. Sure we have Memorial Day and Veterans Day, but anyone who knows the history of World War II knows that D-Day was the turning point, the day the Allied forces finally made the enemy blink. Grohowski drove an amphibious landing craft that morning, dropping Allied troops in knee-deep water off Omaha Beach, then returning later with more troops and supplies. The two vets who met for the first time Monday in a Chatsworth elder-care facility never told their kids until just a few years ago what they were doing 62 years ago today. Hitting Omaha Beach in Normandy, France, at dawn on June 6, 1944 – D-Day. Like so many returning GIs, Ben Burger, now 86, and Mike Grohowski, 93, came home from World War II and locked away all their war memories and medals deep in closets, garages and attics. They were more interested in starting families and beginning careers than in telling and retelling war stories. For all he knows, one of those men was Ben Berger, a naval gunfire liaison officer attached to the 5th Ranger Battalion. A kid who would go on to be awarded a chestful of medals, including the coveted Silver Star for bravery, presented to him by Secretary of the Navy James Forrestal. For more than 50 years, the Silver Star collected dust in a foot locker in the garage of his Reseda home, along with his other medals and memories, before he finally told his daughter, Elsie, about it in 1998. They had just come home from the hospital after visiting Dolly, Ben’s wife and Elsie’s mother, who had suffered a stroke. She died a few years later. “We were looking through old photo albums when Dad said he had an old foot locker out in the garage I might want to look through,” Elsie said. She and her brother, Steve, knew their father had been in the war, but neither was ready for his memories and medals. “He never wanted anyone to know about it – and still doesn’t like talking about it,” Elsie said. “But you know what made us even more proud of him? That after all that, he came home and raised his family – that he was a kind man who always wanted to help people out. That’s our father.” Michelle Grohowski-Ray feels the same way about her dad, Michael. She still remembers the day he handed her a college scholarship application reserved for children of disabled veterans. “I had no idea he had even been there on D-Day or that he later suffered a disabling injury,” she said Monday. Service records show that Mike Grohowski lost his right eye fighting in France on Oct. 31, 1944. It was replaced with a prosthetic eye that was so realistic no one in his family knew for more than 20 years, Michelle said. “Dad always wore glasses. I was 19 before I knew he had lost his right eye and how it happened. We took a long walk one day and he told me about it. “To save the other eye, he was bandaged in complete darkness for three months before he came home. Dad really didn’t open up completely about the war until after Mom died in 2000.” He has thought about D-Day often over the years – all those young soldiers he dropped off on Omaha Beach who didn’t make it home. “You can’t erase something like that from your mind, ever,” he said. Ben and Mike spent more than an hour together Monday and set a date to meet again in a few weeks. Ben has some pictures from his D-Day commemorative visits to Normandy. He wants to show Mike how Omaha Beach looks now. And for the first time in many years, Mike wants to see.

13 March 2013 South African technology company Tellumat has opened a fully modernised electronics factory in Atlantis north of Cape Town, following a multi-million rand investment supported by the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) and the Industrial Development Corporation. Speaking at the opening event on Tuesday, Trade and Industry Minister Rob Davies reiterated the government’s commitment to support companies that contribute to the South African economy and job creation. “This state-of-the-art facility that we see today was made possible amongst others by the manufacturing investment grant of R2.64-million for a capital outlay of R12-million to resuscitate the old Tedelex factory,” Davies said. “The company has also benefited from an Industrial Development Corporation loan of R8.2-million for surface mounting technology expansion for this facility.” According to Tellumat CEO Rasheed Hargey, the factory was modernised with new production equipment in 2012, enabling it to produce electronics for brands such as Sony, Mecer and HiSense. Tellumat acquired the assets of the old Tedelex television factory in Atlantis in 2010, and continued to operate from the old facility until the end of last year, when it moved into the new facility. Hargey said the facility represented a significant investment in South Africa’s manufacturing sector and would be a major boost for the development of Atlantis. “We currently have a staff complement of 116, and we wish to have more as we grow as a company,” Hargey said. “The factory is an illustrative example of co-operation between the government and business partners to attract private sector investment through an enabling environment and industry-supporting incentives.” Western Cape Premier Helen Zille, also present at Tuesday’s opening, said it was wonderful to see South Africans on the cutting edge of technology, where the future of job creation lay in the country. “Technology is an important field with the potential to improve education and government and generally to transform the way we live,” Zille said. “We must make sure that government steps up to the plate to assist business to take advantage of strong and growing export markets in Africa, which the Western Cape is well poised to do.” According to the DTI, the electrotechnical sector accounts for at least 12.5% of South Africa’s gross domestic product (GDP).

PASADENA, CA – JANUARY 01: Ohio State Buckeyes head coach Urban Meyer speaks to the media after the Rose Bowl Game presented by Northwestern Mutual at the Rose Bowl on January 1, 2019 in Pasadena, California. (Photo by Harry How/Getty Images)This will be Jim Harbaugh’s fifth season at Michigan, and many feel the time is now to finally do two things: beat Ohio State and win the Big Ten.Harbaugh is 0-4 against the Buckeyes, with all of those matchups featuring Urban Meyer on the OSU sideline. Twice, Meyer’s team beat the Wolverines with a berth in the Big Ten title game on the line.Meyer isn’t coaching this year, but he knows this Michigan team well. Appearing on The Herd this afternoon, Meyer was asked by host Colin Cowherd if 2019 will finally be the breakthrough season for the Maize and Blue.Meyer slyly sidestepped a definitive answer to the question, but did offer high praise for the Michigan offensive line (“the best they’ve had [under Harbaugh]”), offensive line coach Ed Warinner and the UM wide receivers (“three legitimate high draft picks”). He added that the key for Michigan will be the transition from a Pro Style offense to a spread-based attack..@ColinCowherd: Is this the year Jim Harbaugh and Michigan finally breakthrough?@OSUCoachMeyer on his former rivals’ upcoming season… pic.twitter.com/sGQKdGeRTo— Herd w/Colin Cowherd (@TheHerd) August 1, 2019All in all, Meyer’s assessment is pretty accurate. Michigan is big and experienced up front, they have Nico Collins, Donovan Peoples-Jones and Tarik Black on the outside and an experienced quarterback in Shea Patterson.On defense, they have to break in new starters, but defensive coordinator Don Brown is still one of the best in the business.In the first edition of the 2019 Coaches’ Poll, Michigan is ranked seventh.

You know what we’re talking about — over the course of the day, as you lift your arms, sit down, bend over, and move like a normal human being, your shirt pulls out from your pants just a little bit and you slowly start to look like you’ve got a flabby muffin-top spilling out over the waistband of your trousers.Most guys just accept untucking as an unfortunate and unavoidable fact of life, but it doesn’t have to be that way. The good folks at Magnetuck have developed a stunningly simple solution to the dreaded phenomenon of untucking: magnets.That’s right, guys — magnets.
