IN TROUBLE—Alan Herrera of Sinaloa, Mexico falls back into the corner ropes as Rankin’s Monty Meza-Clay hits him with a strong left Friday Night Aug. 8 at the Consol Energy Center. (Photo by J.L. Martello)A new generation of talent was on display at the Iron Mike Promotions’ The Pride of Pittsburgh boxing event at Consol Energy Center, Aug. 8t. But it was a familiar face that stole the show.Lightweight Monty Meza-Clay (36-3-0), of Rankin, knocked out Alan Herrera of Sinaloa, Mexico, in the 10th and final round.“I’m not the main event but I’m the main event,” said Meza-Clay. “I live a fighters lifestyle. I’m all business. I might be the smallest but I fight like I’m the biggest.”In the main event Monessen native Sammy Vasquez Jr., (16-0-0) defeated previously unbeaten James Stevenson (21-1-0) of Baltimore. Vasquez stopped him in the ninth round.“I never been past round six and I was hoping that he took me into deep water and he did,” said Vasquez. “I come a long way from a tiny gym at Courttime to the Consol Energy Center and it’s because of all my great fans. They want to see me fight so we keep moving into bigger and bigger arenas.”Monty Meza-Clay relinquished his title out of health concerns and after a controversial loss. Tommy Yankello, the man who trains Meza-Clay, once called his fighter “Pittsburgh’s fourth franchise,” after the Steelers, Pirates and Penquins.
1 Brazilian right-back Danilo Brazilian right-back Danilo has snubbed Manchester United and Manchester City and opted to sign for Real Madrid.The defender has agreed a deal to join the Spanish side in the summer from Porto for a fee of around £22m – and that fee could rise to around £28m if the player and club reach a number of targets.The 23-year-old has made 23 appearances in the Portuguese top-flight so far this season and scored three goals – the same amount he notched last season over 28 matches.Since joining Porto in December 2011, the former Santos man has won two Portuguese titles and two cups and will now move to La Liga in the hope of extending his medal collection.Danilo started both of Brazil’s friendlies at the end of March and set up his nation’s winning goal in the 1-0 win over Chile at Arsenal’s Emirates stadium on Sunday.
The construction of the project is expected to create some 300 direct jobs, while the businesses housed within the village are expected to create about 500 direct jobs. Work has begun on South Africa’s first aerospace supplier park. Centurion Aerospace Village (CAV) will place smaller companies in close proximity to large suppliers like Denel and Aerosud, helping to increase their participation in the high value sector. In addition, research is currently under way to assess the viability of using renewable and eco-friendly technology in the construction of South Africa’s first aerospace manufacturing facility. According to EU attache for private sector development Corrine Salinas, the programme aimed to promote the growth of small, medium and micro enterprises (SMMEs) in the industry, with job creation being a fundamental objective. Mammen said the national tender for the construction of the facility would go out in early 2009, with construction due to begin through the course of next year. It is expected that the construction and operation of the CAV will lead to increased job creation, while also accelerating the integration of small companies into the aerospace industry. Speaking at a sod turning ceremony in Centurion outside Pretoria on Tuesday, Salinas said R279-million had already been handed over to the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), who are spearheading the project, with a further R180-million due shortly. “The success of the CAV is based on the commercial viability of the cluster to meet the demands of the international aerospace merket.” It will be constructed with the help of the European Union (EU), which has allocated €50-million (about R569-million) to the project through its sector wide support enterprise, employment and equity programme. Eco-friendly park “We are also looking into the use of water reticulation versus that of natural water.” The CAV, which will help with the creation of a lean aero-structure supply chain focussed on manufacturing, is registered as a Section 21 non-profit company. Construction by 2009 “The CAV has been designed to unlock the growth potential of the local aerospace and aviation industries, where local original equipment manufacturers, suppliers of components, parts and tools and service providers stand to benefit equally from synergistic and economy of scale applications,” the department said. The department pointed out that the CAV would not be limited to manufacturing, but would also offer opportunities in service-related activities including logistics, training and technology centres, shared services and coordinated education. Denel Aviation CEO Ismail Dockrat said that the development of the CAV was a turning point for the aerospace industry in South Africa. “While the CAV is important to us as a local industry, it is interlinked to attracting original equipment manufacturers to South Africa and will help us join the international market,” he said. 20 August 2008 “This supplier park is not only modelled on the success of the local automotive industry, but also mirrors similar international parks, such as Silicone Valley in California and Toulouse in France,” the department said in a statement. “We recognise the importance of efficient clusters of areas of competence that need to be developed and supported and ultimately integrated into the global aerospace industry,” Trade and Industry Minister Mandisi Mphalwa said at the ceremony. Source: BuaNews Unlocking growth “We are currently looking into the use of passive energy and considering the options of conventional power [provided by state utility Eskom] versus that of solar energy,” CAV project manager Vimal Mammen said at the ceremony. “Failure to do so would isolate our domestic industry from the opportunities for growth foreseen in especially large commercial aircraft manufacturing as is forecast by both Airbus and Boeing, both of which have offered many opportunities for South Africa to become part of the ever-expanding supplier base.” Phase one of the project will include infrastructure developments, water, electricity and construction of roads. The completion date for this phase, which precedes the actual development, is still to be announced.
A day after Union HRD Minister Smriti Irani had claimed that no medical assistance was provided to Dalit scholar Rohith Vemula, the Andhra Pradesh government report issued by Guntur tehsildar states that Rohith was not a Dalit. This report has been also been quoted by the Telangana police.Also, earlier reports claim that the Telangana Police did face resistance during the probe. Police have also claimed that an unruly mob of students did not allow the police to take out Vemula’s body in order to further the investigation.During a debate on Wednesday, a visibly emotional Irani lashed out at the opposition for playing politics over the dead body of a student. She had said that nobody even allowed a doctor near Vemula either to revive him or take him to the hospital for medical attention.However, Dr. Rajashree P the Chief Medical Officer, University of Hyderabad, the doctor who was on duty at the university’s health centre refuted all her claims.Also read:Full text: Smriti Irani’s explosive speech in Lok Sabha on Rohith Vemula and JNU rowI am a Durga worshipper, says Smriti Irani amid apology demands from OppositionWhat is nationalism?

OTTAWA — Statistics Canada says it will not publish international merchandise trade statistics for December as scheduled on Feb. 5 due to the U.S. government shutdown.The agency says it uses U.S. import data to measure Canadian exports to the United States.However, the partial U.S. government shutdown that began Dec. 22 has meant that Statistics Canada will not receive that data as expected.It noted that trade statistics without Canada’s exports to the United States have limited use as they represent approximately 75 per cent of Canada’s total exports.Statistics Canada noted that other quarterly economic reports that rely on the trade data such as the balance of international payments and quarterly gross domestic product will go ahead using special estimates of Canadian exports to the United States if necessary.It said that combining an estimate of one month with two months of actual trade figures and other sources of economic data reduces the risks associated with publishing an estimate for December trade data on its own.The Canadian Press
Community pharmacists and primary care providers are key partners in the catch-up program. Pharmacists administered 219 doses of vaccine for measles for children and youth aged five to 19 years in the past month.The Government says efforts will continue through May and June, with 594 in-school clinics, 1,912 regularly scheduled public health clinics and 148 additional community immunization clinics planned at this time. Health authorities will continue to work with schools to notify parents of upcoming measles immunization catch-up clinics and what to expect if their child needs a measles immunization.On March 20, 2019, the Province announced the measles immunization catch-up program to immunize children from kindergarten to Grade 12 who were not previously immunized against measles and for those who may not have received both recommended doses.As of May 6, 29 confirmed cases of measles have been reported in 2019 among B.C. residents. These include: nine cases in the Fraser Health region; 10 in the Vancouver Coastal Health region; eight cases in the Island Health region; and two in the Interior Health region.Since the start of January 2019, more than 13,515 doses of measles-containing vaccines were provided to school-aged children. From Jan. 1 to March 31, 2019, there was excellent uptake on the immunizations, with more than seven months of the doses of the vaccine used already.The Government shares the catch-up program is the first step in the government’s two-phase plan to educate people about the importance of immunization and to help them become aware of their immunization status. Offering the measles immunization catch-up program now will also help prepare parents for mandatory reporting of vaccination status, which is planned for fall 2019. Details on the reporting requirement will be announced. For more information; CLICK HERE VICTORIA, B.C. – Adrian Dix, Minister of Health, has provided an update on the measles immunization catch-up program that was launched April 1, 2019.According to the Government, since April 2019, more than 551,000 letters were sent to families with school-aged children, 129 in-school clinics were held, 1,343 clinics were held in the community and 3,807 doses of measles-containing vaccines were administered by health authorities to K-12 students – a 106% increase compared to last April.In April 2019, health authorities’ efforts focused on reviewing all students’ immunization records and informing families and schools. This preparation was necessary to effectively plan the immunization clinics, which focus on students who are under-immunized or unimmunized for measles.
