Persaud and Alphius Bookie settled in and featured in a 38-run second-wicket stand.But the introduction of Harrilall and Seepersud at opposite ends brought immediate success.

Balkishun trapped Ramdeol plumb in front, while Marvan Prashad went run-out without scoring.Kester McAllister then removed both Saif Amoi without scoring and Sheldon Charles, to reduce the Select Under-15 team to 91-5.They lost the remaining five wickets for just 57 runs, with Khemraj (16), Mark Ramanand (16) along with Travon Charles (11 not out), who offered some resistance in the closing stages of the innings.Meanwhile, in the other first-round game, Berbice whipped Essequibo by 115 runs.Opener and man-of-the-match Alex Algu stroke an entertaining 81, with eight fours and three sixes, which eventually guided Berbice to 215 all out in 49.1 overs.

Atoning

first_imgYes, I admit I am a weakling. Ask my good friends and family and they will attest to my lack of physical strength. I’ve made a second career of avoiding exercise, albeit a poor one. It’s a job without payoff or benefits and while I might have been working hard at avoiding hard workouts, my body has paid the price. I was tone deaf.But not any longer. A few weeks ago I began my latest mission — strength training and cardio workouts with my personal trainer Jenny Costello. Everyone should have someone like Jenny. She cares about my nutrition and how I feel overall, she motivates and inspires me. I was at a point in my life where it no longer made sense to avoid a structured exercise routine. Hiring Jenny made complete sense. It was an investment in me — in my well being.Jenny and I were a natural pairing from the start. And knowing how I love a good story, Jenny had one. A resourceful person, she made a career change from finance to fitness so that she could be closer to home to care for her young children. She turned her passion into a business. I love that kind of story.My recent dedication to fitness has helped in all areas of my life. I’m enjoying more of what I took for granted for many years: preserving the precious gift of living well. We all deserve this.Here’s to progress.For more information about Jenny Costello’s personal training sessions and boot camps, call (732) 778-2385.Please e-mail me at [email protected]last_img read more

Walton’s heroics not enough as Fernie Ghostriders steal 3-2 overtime victory over Nelson Leafs

first_imgNow that Nelson’s top offensive threat Patrick Martens has gone the way of Junior A — after signing earlier this week with the Langley Rivermen — the Leafs will look to another Kootenay International Junior Hockey League All Star to carry the weight of the team.Goalie Andrew Walton came close to packing the Leafs on his back, stopping all but three shots fired at him by the Fernie Ghostriders.However, the third shot proved to be the back breaker as Zach Traverse scored a power play marker with two minutes remaining in the first overtime period to spark the Riders to a 3-2 victory over the Leafs Thursday in the East Kootenay City.Facing this former Rider teammates for the first time since the Castlegar native led Fernie to the Cyclone Taylor Cup Final in April, Walton looked every bit like the game breaker Nelson traded for during the off season.Fernie out shot the Leafs 12-3 in the opening period and took a 2-0 lead on goals by Brendon Mangone and an extra-man marker by Austin Evans.But that would be all the scoring the Riders could manage on Walton during regulation time as the 20-year-old backstopper nailed the door shut despite Nelson being out shot 21-13 during the next 40 minutes.The stellar play by Walton gave Nelson a chance to get back in the game and the Leafs managed the feat with a second period goal by Colton Malmsten on the power play and Max Mois with six minute remaining in the third.The overtime loss concludes a six-game stint away from home for Nelson, finishing the away schedule with a 1-4-0-1 mark.The Leafs, falling to 13-8-0-2, return home Saturday to face winless Grand Forks Border Bruins at 7 p.m. in the NDCC Arena. The Bruins lost 14-2 to Beaver Valley Thursday.The win increases Beaver Valley’s lead to four points over Nelson in Murdoch standings.The Leafs are two points in front of third place Castlegar Rebels, idle Thursday. Castlegar has played four fewer games then Nelson.ICE CHIPS: Andrew Walton was named the game’s first star. . . .The Leafs dipped into the minor hockey leagues to bolster the defence as Cole Arcuri was called up for the game in Fernie. The call-up was due to a rash of injuries to the defence . . . The game also saw the debut of two recent additions for Nelson on the blueline, Eric Spring and J.J. Beitel. Spring came to Nelson in a trade from Kelowna Chiefs while Beitel was signed after being released from Trail Smoke Eaters of the BCHL.

South Africans told: ‘Go Open’

first_img17 February 2005The Go Open Source campaign is an R18-million investment by Hewlett-Packard, the Shuttleworth Foundation and the CSIR to promote the use of open source software among South African home users, scholars and small businesses.IT entrepreneur and “afronaut” Mark Shuttleworth has sponsored a number of projects to promote South African awareness, uptake and growth of open source (OS), a model of software development that challenges traditional forms of copyright and intellectual property.The drive behind the campaign is to make OS software easily available to all users that want it, irrespective of where they live or work.Shuttleworth built his company Thawte using OS software. His foundation nows sponsors a range of educational projects, including Go Open Source and Translate.org.za.The most visible aspect of this campaign is the world’s first television series devoted to open source software. “go_open” is a 13-episode series that highlights the benefits of OS techology for home users with features like “On the Web” and “Geek of the Week”.According to Go Open Source, South Africans spend R6-billion a year on software licences, and 80% of that leaves the country.To encourage the use of OS software at home, Go Open Source offers free copies of the OpenCD on its website. This CD contains a number of OS programmes that are useful for the desktop user, including OpenOffice and the graphics programme GIMP. These are full products containing all the features one would expect from expensive, proprietary programmes.‘Free, as in freedom’The term “open source” (OS) refers to software for which the source code is publicly available. Generally, the software is distributed free with the source code.Not all OS software is free, however, and advocates often qualify the term by saying: “Free, as in freedom”. With OS, the user has the freedom to view the source code, the freedom to make changes, and the freedom to distribute the software.OS refers to the ability to view the source code, which allows developers to improve, make changes or translate the programme. These improvements can then be added to the original programme, to the benefit of all users.For popular OS programmes, this means that there may be hundreds of thousands of developers contributing to and improving the programme, in a collaborative manner.This model of software development challenges traditional forms of copyright and intellectual property.One of the primary benefits that OS software development offers is the ability to translate programmes into whichever language is required with relative ease.Since its release in November 2004, the OS browser Firefox has already been translated into Afrikaans, isiXhosa, isiZulu, seSotho and seSotho sa Leboa – all translations facilitated by non-profit organisation Translate.org.za.Southern SmileGovernments, including South Africa’s, are driving much of the interest in OS software around the world. For developing nations particularly, OS may offer many advantages over traditional proprietary software. The most obvious of these is cost, but OS also offers increased flexibility and reduced dependence on software vendors.This uptake of OS software in the Southern Hemisphere has been dubbed the “Southern Smile”.The SA Government Information Technology Officers’ Council has committed itself to exploring the possibilities of OS use, and to making software procurement choices based on merit, “giving OS software and proprietary software equal opportunities to be selected”.The council also recognised that “OS software offers significant indirect advantages”.Although South Africa is widely recognised as a vocal advocate of OS, the country has yet to match Brazil in terms of adoption of OS technology.In 2003, Brazilian president Lula da Silva committed the largest economy in South America to the adoption of OS software, with the head of that country’s IT Institute saying that paying software licensing fees was economically unsustainable.It is no coincidence that governmental OS use is being pioneered in the same southern nations that have called for compulsory licensing of patented medicines. In both cases, it is felt that the intellectual property rights of multi-national corporations are priviledged over the needs of developing nations.SouthAfrica.info reporter Want to use this article in your publication or on your website?See: Using SAinfo materiallast_img read more
