first_imgExpress’s Michael Birungi in action against Ndejje University on ThursdayStarTimes Uganda Premier League Express FC 0-0 Ndejje University FC Betway Mutessa II Stadium, Wankulukuku Thursday, 10-01-2019WANKULUKUKU – Ndejje University held Express FC to a goalless draw at the Betway Mutessa II Stadium at Wankulukuku.The visitors were at the receiving end of several goal scoring chances but the Red Eagles could not convert any of them.After drawing 1-1 with Maroons in their last game, Express knew that only a win would be welcome in front of their own fans and they started strongly with Michael Birungi sending in two brilliant crosses but none of his peers could apply the telling touch in the end.On 14 minutes, Allan Kayiwa got the first real opportunity of the game but could not stir Tony Odur’s cut-back toward goal.Five minutes later, Birungi fired wide after he was played in by the industrious Disan Galiwango.Four minutes past the half hour mark, Pius Mbidde produced a moment of magic down the right, played Kayiwa in on goal but the former Kirinya JSS player’s back-heel was easily collected by Ndejje custodian Eric Kibowa.Two minutes later, Galiwango sent a free-kick crashing onto the crossbar after Mubaraka Nsubuga was fouled around the area. Straight after, Birungi saw his first time shot off Mubaraka’s cut-back charged down for a corner.Despite the relentless pressure exerted by Express, Ndejje held on to go into the break 0-0.At the second half, it was all Express again as they tried to find the breakthrough. Kayiwa headed wide after Galiwango dribbled past George Akena and sent it a cross from the left. Then Mubaraka saw his fierce drive deflected out for only a corner.With 12 minutes of the second half played, Galiwango again sent in a low cross but Kayiwa could not control it with the goal at his Mercy.In an attempt to freshen things up, Kefa Kisala called for the first substitution with Joel Male replacing Charles Lubega.As Express went all out in search of a goal, Ndejje decided to try their luck on the counter and the tactic nearly paid off with 19 minutes to play but Samuel Matovu shot straight at Ronald Mutebi in Express’s goal after beating Isaac Mutanga.At the other end, Mubaraka tried his luck from distance but his effort flew wide of the target.With time running out, Ndejje called for a change with Bernerd Katetemera replacing Emmanuel Wasswa.Six minutes from time, Ndejje failed to deal with a routine Galiwango corner but we’re relieved as Odur blasted over the rebound.The best chance of the game fell to Mutanga with three minutes to play but his well headed effort was brilliantly saved before it crossed the line by Kibowa.Express piled the pressure and had Birungi strike the upright on 90 minutes but could not find the desired goal as the game ended goalless.The draw leaves Express 9th on the Log with 20 points from 15 games while remain second from bottom with 9 points.The other games on Thursday:-Bul FC 2-2 Nyamityobola-Paidha Black Angels 1-1 Maroons FC-Tooro United 2-0 Bright StarsComments Tags: Express FCndejje universityStarTimes Uganda Premeir Leaguetoplast_img read more

Brand SA breaks ground in Free State

first_imgFree State delegates sign the Brand SouthAfrica pledge to uphold the nation brand andposition the country as a top investment andtourism destination.Brand South Africa headed to the Free State on 17 November 2011 to urge all residents of the province to build the nation’s reputation and position it for global competitiveness.This was the message relayed at the fifth Brand South Africa Stakeholder Summit in Bloemfontein, attended by representatives from government, business and civil society.Taking place in each of the nine provinces, the summits aim to increase provincial participation in the nation-branding effort and encourage active citizenship – which, in turn, will help position the country as a top investment and tourism destination.Speaking at the summit, Brand South Africa programme manager for civil society Leo Makgamathe said that the branding of the country is not a matter of choice, but a necessity.Free State MEC for Economic Development,Tourism and Environmental Affairs, MxolisiDukwana.(Images: Nicky Rehbock)To be successful it requires the combined effort of government, citizens, business, political parties, charities, the media, academia and sporting organisations.“With globalisation speeding up the production and movement of goods, services, investment and talent, perceptions of nations have to be actively managed,” Makgamathe added.And this is no different in South Africa.The country has recently achieved four key milestones: it managed a highly successful Fifa World Cup; came through the world-wide recession almost unscathed; joined Brazil, Russia, China and India in the BRICS economic bloc; and held its fourth free and fair local elections since 1994.“This has underlined that South Africa is an important developing nation in its own right – which has to be marketed to the world,” Makgamathe said.Strong nation brand vital for Free State“The economy of the Free State is built on agriculture and its mines, but increasingly we are looking to tourism as a growth sector and hope to expand our manufacturing base,” the province’s MEC for Economic Development, Tourism and Environmental Affairs Mxolisi Dukwana said at the summit.The Free State is also looking to diversify by developing its logistics capacity, ICT sector, innovation and research, agri-processing and pharmaceuticals.“So what we, and South Africa, need is more investment. How people see a country is vital in this regard. The image of a country makes an integral contribution in attracting tourists, investors and in building trade relationships,” Dukwana added.The government’s role in this is ensuring the country has enabling policies to attract trade and investment, but South Africans also have to believe in themselves to position the country as a viable destination.“We must be bold enough to face our fears and challenges, and understand what we’re about. In doing that we can become our own marketers. In our diversity we also need to have one identity and be proud of it. Often we’re too negative and hard on ourselves,” the MEC told summit delegates.“I urge all of you to do your ‘national service’ and respond when Brand South Africa calls, so that we can work together to create a truly great South Africa for all.”last_img read more

Smooth Edges in the Google BubbleWe wondered what it is like to “be native” in Google Apps. Cloud Sherpas has chosen to let Google be the identity provider for their own customers who “add” Cloud Sherpas to their existing Google account as part of getting started. This is the default action in the marketplace and it seems to work best when your application is “only” in the Google marketplace.This approach highlights one of the key decisions that app developers will need to consider when building applications for Google Apps, especially porting applications that may already have user accounts.The more we learned, the more it becomes clear to the benefits for application developers to choose a platform and optimize for it. It appears, that the elusive “win-win” can be found in both bringing new customers to Google and for Cloud Sherpas to get a lot of customers by extending Google as needed to win the enterprise.Is Google Apps knocking on your IT doorstep?

NWC Outlines Challenge of Serving Deep Rural Districts

first_img “It is not economically viable for the NWC to provide an efficient service and to generate a surplus that could be adequately reinvested if we take on some of these remote [and hard-to-reach] communities… it’s just not possible,” President of the NWC, Mark Barnett, said. Story Highlights “In most of these communities, the population is not concentrated, they are sparsely dispersed across a large area and when you put in that level of investment (in terms of infrastructure), it is going to cost a lot, which you are not likely to recoup. We are into centralised systems,” he added. The National Water Commission (NWC) is encouraging Jamaicans living in deep rural communities to explore using tanks and catchment facilities to store potable water for domestic use.“It is not economically viable for the NWC to provide an efficient service and to generate a surplus that could be adequately reinvested if we take on some of these remote [and hard-to-reach] communities… it’s just not possible,” President of the NWC, Mark Barnett, said.Speaking at a JIS ‘Think Tank’ on January 11, the President pointed out that the provision of potable water has become a costly undertaking and in some areas it is extremely expensive to provide the infrastructure to pipe water to some homes.“In most of these communities, the population is not concentrated, they are sparsely dispersed across a large area and when you put in that level of investment (in terms of infrastructure), it is going to cost a lot, which you are not likely to recoup. We are into centralised systems,” he added.He explained that putting in the infrastructure in some areas has become so expensive that it would be unwise to proceed without some form of direct subsidy from the Government to offset the cost.Mr. Barnett noted that there are a number of those communities and it would be more suitable to have other systems to provide potable water.“Those days when people used to invest in rainwater harvesting, we need to revisit that. It’s a significant area that must be part of any solution in solving and providing access to potable water. We have to now look again at community catchment systems,” he suggested.“Tanks that were community catchments, those need to be revitalised, reactivated and utilised as part of the modality of providing water,” he added.Mr. Barnett said that where Municipal Corporations operate these facilities, including major stand-alone wells and water acquirers that are used to provide piped water to small communities, the NWC will assist by providing experts to guide their efficient operations.
