Pulisic ready to focus on Chelsea

first_imgEmbed from Getty ImagesChristian Pulisic has said goodbye to his Borussia Dortmund colleagues and the American winger is now ready to focus on his new adventure in the Premier League. The 20-year old signed a 5-year contract with Chelsea early 2019.In his last game for Dortmund, the young talent played for the whole 90 minutes providing the assist for the second goal in the 2-0 victory over Borussia Mönchengladbach. Dortmund was very close to winning the first league title since 2011/12, but in the end of the season it was Bayern Munich who got out on top. Dortmund gathered 76 points, Bayern topped the league with 78 points.Pulisic was signed by Dortmund as a 16-year old and was assigned first to their U17 squad and in summer 2015, to the U19. After scoring 10 and assisting 8 in just 15 games with the Dortmund youth teams, Pulisic joined the first team over winter break. Under the @BlackYellow Twitter-account, Dortmund said goodbye to Pulisic in the following way: “You came to us as a boy and left as a man. Thank you, Christian”. The American international played 30 games for Dortmund this season, scoring 7 goals and giving 6 assists.Embed from Getty ImagesChristian Pulisic ended his time at Borussia Dortmund with a win and an assist, but it was not quite enough for him to leave Germany as a Bundesliga champion. In a couple of weeks, Christian Pulisic will join Chelsea after a well-deserved holiday. Will he be able to win the Premier League with Chelsea during his spell in London? What position will he be playing? Is he going to replace Eden Hazard and play as a left-winger or will he be used on his favorite position on the right side of the field?Chelsea is known for starting the season in a good manner, the Blues currently hold the record for the longest run of opening league fixtures without a defeat. So let’s see if Pulisic can perform as well on the opening weekend in the Premier League as he did in his last game for Dortmund in the Bundesliga. Only 20 years old, the young American player surely has a bright future ahead.

SA rape statistics ‘unacceptably high’

first_img8 September 2011 South Africa’s war on rape is far from being won and more attention needs to be given to beat the scourge, says Police Minister Nathi Mthethwa. Speaking at the release of the country’s annual crime statistics in Pretoria on Thursday, Mthethwa said the number of reported rapes in 2010/11 was unacceptably high. Even though sexual offences overall had decreased by 3.1%, and had been on a general decline for the past two years, the minister said he was concerned about rape. “Rape increased from 55 097 to 56 272 cases and we cannot seriously say we are winning the war against rape,” Mthethwa said. Police were taking various steps to address these figures. “The re-introduction of the Family Violence, Child Protection and Sexual Offences units through the country over the past financial year provides us with the platform on which to ensure crimes against women and children are adequately addressed by police,” he said. The minister noted that rapes were often under-reported, adding that continued efforts to improve the country’s criminal justice system could result in more rapes being reported by victims. He stressed that the eradication of violence that targets women and children was one of his ministry’s key priorities. Source: BuaNewslast_img read more

Comedian Pieter-Dirk Uys’ celebrated in new documentary

first_imgComedian, writer and satirist-in-chief Pieter-Dirk Uys is a true South African icon. Almost everyone knows who he is and what he’s done. He has contributed greatly to South Africa’s collective pop psyche and funny bone.A new documentary, Nobody’s Died Laughing, celebrates the life of Pieter-Dirk Uys and his career, which expands over 50 years in performance. The film, which debuted at the Durban International Film Festival (Diff) at the end of June, is set for a nationwide theatrical release on 29 July 2016.Directed by Willem Oelofsen, the film features interviews with friends, family and well known South Africans in arts and politics, all reminiscing about their favourite Uys moments. Interviewees include singers David Kramer and Zolani Mahola of Freshlyground; actresses Charlize Theron and Janet Suzman; and others such as former president FW de Klerk, Desmond Tutu and Nelson Mandela’s former private secretary Zelda la Grange. Italian actress Sophia Loren – one of Uys’ childhood idols – makes a special appearance to talk about their lifelong friendship.The film also covers campaigns he is passionate about such as his travelling Aids-awareness entertainment programme, which he performed to over 1.5-million people across South Africa.Spice up your popcorn for Nobody’s Died Laughing @numetro @numetrowoodland 29 JULY. Trailer https://t.co/rPkILTabaf pic.twitter.com/VBdrtn53KQ— NobodysDiedLaughing (@whoEntProjects) July 12, 2016The film looks at the over 100 performances around the world, with particular attention on his apartheid-era satire. He took his anti-establishment message to forefront of the country’s dark political landscape while making all South Africans laugh at themselves.Uys is the only entertainer to win South Africa’s prestigious Truth andReconciliation Award.During his long career, Uys has enjoyed audiences with political figures such as former Minister of Foreign Affairs, Pik Botha, former president Thabo Mbeki and Mandela too. He has also formed long friendships with fellow social justice warriors such as U2’s frontman Bono, Mandela’s widow Graça Machel and the late Hollywood actress, Elizabeth Taylor.“This film captures a man and a lifetime commitment to a country by using satire to affect change,” Oelofsen told News24.The film also goes beyond Pieter-Dirk Uys the performer. It gets to know the man himself and what he thinks about a life spent in the limelight, drawing the ire of politicians and doing his best to change the world for the better.“I found it fascinating that after 50 years in the entertainment industry he was still working at the same pace and with the same vigour as when he started,” Oelofsen said, “I believe audiences will be intrigued to experience more about the man who refuses to be silenced while using the arts as his weapon against discrimination and confronting intolerance.”Popular online film critic duo, simply known as The Critics, call the film “an incredible South African experience”. They recommend it as compulsory viewing for every South African. Watch their full review below:Durban film critic Fred Felton calls the film “deeply thought provoking, emotional, very funny.”Watch a discussion between Uys and Oelofsen, recorded during Diff 2016.Source: SA People Newslast_img read more

5 Million NYC Property Records Available Via Startup’s API

first_imgIn the near future, Blocks and Lots will add location-aware iPhone and Android apps (i.e., the user’s mobile device will automatically retrieve property data depending on where the user it), and enabling the writable APIs to add user-generated content to the city’s data (e.g., photos, documents or text).To vote for Blocks and Lots – or any of the other apps submitted in the BigApps competition – check out the app gallery and voting rules. Related Posts jolie odell Back in the fall, we told you about NYC’s BigApps competition, which encouraged technological innovation to benefit government and civic engagement. Public voting for the submitted applications opened this week.One of the submissions to come out of this competition is Blocks and Lots, an interesting app and API that essentially expose all the property records – more than 5 million records, total – for New York City. For site owners, there’s a customizable widget that can be embedded in just about any kind of site.Blocks and Lots’ API allows developers to integrate detailed property information into any web or mobile application. Sample code is available in PHP and JavaScript.Blocks and Lots comes from BlankSlate, an NYC startup offering a web platform and set of read/write APIs for making, sharing, monetizing, and monitoring web apps. The company provides capabilities such as data, file, user and payment management through REST APIs.Using the same platform, BlankSlate was able to gather the city’s data files from 45 file sources from three different city agencies, import them and instantly export APIs. This process took just a few days.For example, you can use the Blocks and Lots widget to dig into the property valuation for Ellis Island, which is apparently worth about as much as Zynga these days.

DeQuinton Osborne — who shall heretofore be referred to as “The Blizzard” — had an outrageous pick against Montrell Cozart in the second half of OSU’s game on Saturday in Lawrence. He almost scored himself a Fat Guy TD but came up just short (even though he obliterated some poor Kansas offensive player). There’s a human being under there. (via @sarahcphipps) #okstate pic.twitter.com/DF230O8tEC— Carson Cunningham (@KOCOCarson) October 22, 2016Two questions here. First, does Osborne have better hands than all of the secondary or just most of it? Two, why was a 310-pound DT 10 yards off the line? Either way, enjoy the show.last_img read more

College Football Playoff Chairman Speaks on Oklahoma State-Central Michigan controversy

first_imgAmong the many controversial topics touched on during the ESPN telecast on Tuesday evening, college football playoff committee chairman Kirby Hocutt responded to a sore subject for OSU fans: The result of the Central Michigan game.“Oklahoma State’s record is 9-2, Hocutt said on Tuesday on the game. “However, the committee is aware of what transpired in the Central Michigan game. We’re aware.”That’s definitely good news for Oklahoma State. There has been a back-and-forth regarding the controversial ‘loss’ earlier in the season, and most recently, the committee showed a hard-line stance on the game that did not favor the surging Cowboys.“We’re viewing it as a loss,” Hocutt said on Nov. 8. “It’s not within our purview to determine wins and losses.”So while they clearly don’t view them as a 10-1 team at the moment, it seems that they’re at least taking that game into consideration. Which is a positive development.The Cowboys came in at No. 10 in the latest college football playoff rankings. But despite moving up just one spot from the last list released a week ago, Hocutt called the difference between the 6-10 teams “very close.”Oklahoma State has a bye this weekend, before going on the road to Norman to face the rival Sooners for the Big 12 title.
