Chan 2014: tough draw for Bafana

first_img19 September 2013Host country South Africa were handed a tough draw for the 2014 African Nations Championship (Chan) when the groups for the finals were decided at the Confederation of African Football’s (Caf’s) headquarters in Cairo, Egypt on Wednesday.The annual Chan finals feature African national teams made up entirely of players from the domestic leagues of the different countries. South Africa is hosting the tournament from 11 January to 1 February 2014.At Wednesday’s draw, Bafana Bafana were drawn in Group A together with Mozambique Mali and Nigeria.Reigning African champions Nigeria are ranked 4th in Africa and 36th in the world in the latest Fifa rankings, with Mali just behind them at 5th and 38th. South Africa is ranked 12th on the continent (68th in the world), and Mozambique 32nd (116th).In August, Nigeria recorded their sixth win in eight outings against South Africa, beating Bafana 2-0 in Durban to win the 2013 Nelson Mandela Challenge. And it was Mali who put an end to Bafana’s strong run in the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) in February, winning the penalty shootout 3-1 after the teams ended 1-1 in the quarterfinals of the tournament.“It is a tough draw, probably the toughest of the four groups, but I welcome it,” Bafana coach Gordon Igesund told the South African Football Association following the draw. “We could have drawn anyone and it could still have been tough because there are no easy matches any more in international competition.“It will also give the boys a massive boost should they qualify for the next stage having accounted for some of the big names in the early stages.“We are playing at home, and that should galvanise us to do well,” Igesund said, adding: “We are going to need all our best players so we can do well in this event.”Bafana Bafana will start their Chan campaign against Mozambique at Cape Town Stadium on 11 January before taking on Mali on 15 January and Nigeria on 19 January at the same venue.Group matches will also be played at Athlone Stadium in Cape Town, Free State Stadium in Bloemfontein, and Peter Mokaba Stadium in Polokwane.Polokwane will also host one quarterfinal match, while Bloemfontein will host one quarterfinal and both semi-finals. Cape Town Cape Town will host two quarterfinals as well as the third-place playoff and the final on 1 February.SAinfo reporterlast_img read more

How The Big Six Book Publishers Are Using Social Media

first_imgFacebook is Becoming Less Personal and More Pro… richard macmanus Simon & Schuster also runs book club type activities on Twitter, plus Facebook.Facebook – Differing StrategiesThe big six don’t all use Facebook in the same way. Hachette irregularly updates its Facebook page (there are only 3 updates in September so far) and probably as a result it only has 3,998 likes currently. Compare that to Random House, which appears to do 3-4 Facebook updates per day on average and has 38,369 likes.However, it could be that Hachette is simply trying a different Facebook strategy from the norm. Because instead of focusing on its corporate brand page, Hachette promotes the Facebook pages of its authors and fan pages for Hachette books. In the fifth and final part of our series, Social Books, we explore how the “big six” book publishers use social media. So far in the series we’ve looked at the largest social network for book lovers (Goodreads), a new social network for book writers (Writer’s Bloq), how public libraries use social media, and whether book highlights are being successfully socialized. We’ve learned so far that almost everything to do with books – writing them, reading them, borrowing them, making highlights in them – has been impacted by Web technologies. So surely the biggest book publishers in America will have adapted to online technologies too, right? Let’s find out!The so-called “big six” in trade book publishing across North America consists of Hachette Book Group, HarperCollins, Macmillan, Penguin Group, Random House and Simon & Schuster. There are hundreds of other publishing firms, some of them subsidiaries of the big six. But for the purposes of this post, we’ll focus on the biggies and highlight three of the main social networks they use: Twitter, Facebook and Tumblr.Twitter Book ClubsPenguin USA has done an innovative thing with Twitter, holding a monthly book club with the help of hashtags and tweeting authors. Every month Penguin staff selects a book by one of its authors and invites people to tweet about it using the hashtag #readpenguin. It holds “mini book club meetings” during the course of the month, in which the book author answers questions from readers. The current book of the month is Laura Lamont’s Life in Pictures by Emma Straub. Tags:#social networks#Social Web#web The Author & Reader Take Center StageThat’s just a taste of what book publishers are doing with social media. I got the sense that it’s incredibly varied and that each of the big six is experimenting with social media in a different way. They all had one thing in common though: the author and her audience is paramount when it comes to social media.Whether it’s helping promote an author’s Facebook page, blogging about an author on Tumblr, or organizing a Twitter discussion between an author and her readers, the publishing houses understand that the Social Web is all about authors engaging with their readers. A Comprehensive Guide to a Content Audit One of Hachette’s leading authors, novelist James Patterson, has 3.4 million likes. Patterson appears to be regularly – and personally – updating his Facebook page. He’s not quite as prolific as Paulo Coelho, the master of social media among authors, but it’s still a good effort.Tumblr Is Popular With Book PublishersBlog advertising company Blogads did some research In January this year and found that Tumblr is especially popular with book publishers.HarperCollins, which has a presence on just about every social media service, has a couple of good Tumblrs. The corporate HarperCollins Tumblr features blog posts by staff, alongside quirky promotional ideas like “Seen on the Subway” (photos of everyday people reading HarperCollins books). One of the company’s divisions, Harper Perennial, also does a colorful Tumblr.

Shoppers take to their phones for Cyber Monday deals

first_imgNEW YORK, N.Y. – Weeks of deals didn’t stop people from heading online to shop on the Monday after Thanksgiving.Cyber Monday is on track to becoming the biggest U.S. online shopping day ever, according to Adobe Analytics, the research arm of software maker Adobe. By 10 a.m. Eastern time, $840 million had been spent online, up nearly 17 per cent from a year ago, Adobe said. And more people are picking up their phones to shop: Web traffic from mobile devices, including tablets, is expected to top desktop computers for the first time this year, Adobe said.When Frank Yanover browsed Amazon’s Cyber Monday deals through his phone, he wasn’t looking for anything in particular. But he spent $300 on a Vitamix blender that he had eyed before, which he said was a $200 discount.“I never bought it because it was so expensive,” said Yanover, who is retired and lives in Hollywood, Florida.Over the holiday weekend, he bought an iPad from Best Buy through his phone and then picked it up at a store. And using his voice-activated Echo, he bought Amazon’s $30 Echo Dot for his bedroom, which was $20 off.Others seem to be doing the same. The Echo Dot was the top-selling electronic item on Amazon, followed by the Fire TV. Board games, Fingerlings and Legos were bestsellers in Amazon’s toy section.Over at eBay, one $745 Apple MacBook Air was sold every five seconds, the company said. And J.C. Penney said its top-selling items on its website were towels, $25 diamond stud earrings and a Liz Claiborne bag that has a built-in phone charger.Target and Toys R Us offered 15 per cent off most items. Walmart.com tripled the amount of items available on its site from last year. But Amazon is expected to be the big winner over the holiday season, with Bain & Co. expecting the online retailer to capture 50 per cent of all online sales growth this year.The shift to online shopping has been noticeable even before Cyber Monday. At a Toys R Us in Toledo, Ohio, on Friday, the parking lot was about half full. Melissa Wetzel, who said she would also do some shopping online, said her Black Friday in-store shopping had been relaxing since she didn’t have to fight the crowds.“It’s been pretty easy,” she said. “I guess most are shopping online.”__Associated Press writer John Seewer in Toledo, Ohio, contributed to this report.last_img read more

Charitable offseason keeps mens lacrosse team busy

In just two weekends of preseason action, the Ohio State men’s lacrosse team has done more than most teams do all season.Coach Nick Meyers has jump started preseason play with a “Thumbs Up,” two weekends full of fundraising for athletic scholarship funds near and dear to the Buckeyes’ hearts.The Buckeyes scrimmaged Johns Hopkins in a friendly rivalry game on Oct. 10 at Upper Arlington High School. Johns Hopkins is the top team in the country, and the game served as a reminder that the Buckeyes have a lot of work ahead of them.     More than $5,000 was raised for The Michael Robert Breschi Memorial Scholarship Fund, which is the largest memorial scholarship endowment in the Ohio State Department of Athletics. The scholarship commemorates the life of Michael Breschi, the son of former Ohio State lacrosse coach Joe Breschi.Michael passed away in an accident in March 2004 when he was just three years old. In the ten years Breschi coached men’s lacrosse, he shattered the record for most career wins with 81.    The 2009 recipient, defenseman Scott Foreman, accepted this honor at the team banquet. Foreman was second team All-Conference in 2008.        The Lindner Memorial Athletic Scholarship golf outing took place last weekend. The scholarship was created in honor of former Buckeye lacrosse player Dan Lindner’s wife, two young sons, and mother-in-law, who died in a car accident in 2006. “Every decade of our lacrosse program was represented at the outing. It was great for the team to see the tradition our program has created,” Meyers said.The Lindner Memorial Scholarship honor was given to junior midfielder Michael Pires. A British Columbia native, Pires has stepped into the leadership role the team has needed. On Saturday, the Buckeyes hosted an alumni lacrosse game in the Horseshoe. The team played with recent graduates for about an hour, while older alumni surrounded the field. The weekend concluded with the annual team banquet. In addition to the Michael Breschi and Linder Memorial honors, awards were announced for the most valuable players, unsung heroes, most improved and players who performed exemplary service for OSU.The banquet recognized the accomplishments of the 2009 team and solidified the goals of the 2010 season. The focus of the offseason will be strength training and teaching the team the fundamentals.“The guys have been hammering away and the energy level at this point is great,” Meyers said. “We are going to work on an individual level and focus on studying game films.” The Buckeyes have a close-knit team, but Meyers would like to see the group get tighter. “We are working on our core values and maintaining what makes our program so special,” Meyers said. Regular practice will begin in January, giving the team just six weeks before they face Duke in the first game of regular season play. read more
