Isla set for QPR move

first_img The 47-cap Chile defender has completed his medical at Loftus Road and tweeted news of his move on Tuesday morning, before later removing the post. Redknapp’s fourth summer signing should be officially ratified just a day after QPR paid a fee believed to reach £6million to prise Jordon Mutch away from Cardiff City. The 26-year-old Chilean should see his QPR move confirmed once the club receive official endorsement on the transfer from the Football Association. Manager Harry Redknapp has secured Isla’s services on a one-year loan with a view to a permanent transfer, Press Association Sport understands. Juventus defender Mauricio Isla has completed terms on a season-long loan deal with QPR, with the London club awaiting work-permit confirmation.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Bush praises Mongolians

first_imgULAN BATOR, Mongolia – In the wake of congressional unrest over his war policies, President George W. Bush thanked Mongolia today for standing with him in Iraq and compared the struggle against Islamic radicalism to this country’s battle against communism. “Free people did not falter in the Cold War, and free people will not falter in the war on terror,” the president said in an applause-filled speech to members of Parliament and others at the Government House. Thick smog and fog hung over this frigid capital during Bush’s four-hour visit, the first of any U.S. president. He was greeted at the Government House by flower-toting children dressed in traditional Mongolian robes and soldiers wearing bright red, blue and yellow overcoats. Bush said Mongolia has stood with the United States as “brothers in the cause of freedom.” He called Mongolians’ success in driving communist leaders from power 15 years ago an example for the world. Bush has been fiercely defending his Iraq policy across Asia as war critics in Washington found a new voice in hawkish Democratic Rep. John Murtha of Pennsylvania. The White House initially attacked Murtha, but Bush on Sunday toned down his backlash by saying there was nothing unpatriotic about opposing the war. He told reporters that Murtha is “a fine man” and a strong supporter of the military despite the congressman’s call for troop withdrawal as soon as possible. “People should feel comfortable about expressing their opinions about Iraq,” Bush said, three days after agreeing with Vice President Dick Cheney that the critics were “reprehensible.” Bush raised the growing Iraq debate when he met reporters after inconclusive talks with President Hu Jintao about friction in U.S.-China relations. He received a warmer welcome from Enkhbayar, who has been eager for closer military relations with the United States and has sent 120 Mongolian soldiers to Iraq. The number is small, but White House officials are quick to point out that, per capita, only two other countries – the United Kingdom and Denmark – have sent more of their soldiers to Iraq. The Mongolians have been rewarded with $11 million in U.S. aid to improve military forces. Bush also noted that the country was one of 16 chosen to share in $1 billion in U.S. aid as part of his Millennium Challenge Account that rewards poor countries that show a commitment to economic and government reform. Bush urged the parliament to pass anti-corruption legislation as part of the transition to a successful democracy. Mongolia’s share of the $1 billion is subject to approval after the country submits a spending proposal to Washington. The millions of dollars expected from the program could make a big difference for a country with a total gross domestic product of only $1.1 billion. Bush said U.S. forces are proud to serve with the “fearless warriors” of Mongolia, home of legendary, ferocious horseman-warrior Khan. Bush specifically thanked two Mongolian soldiers attending his speech who gunned down a suicide bomber who tried to drive a truck full of explosives into a coalition mess tent in southern Iraq. With eight more U.S. military deaths over the weekend, Bush reminded Mongolians that their transition to liberty was not always easy. But he said Mongolians have built a better life with their struggle against communism. “Like the ideology of communism, Islamic radicalism teaches the innocent can be murdered to serve their brutal aims,” Bush said. “Like the ideology of communism, Islamic radicalism is dismissive of free peoples, claiming that men and women who live in liberty are weak and decadent.” Mongolia was the last scheduled stop during Bush’s weeklong visit to Asia, which included visits to Japan, South Korea and China. He returns to Washington tonight. Bush ran into stiff resistance from the Chinese to his call for expanding religious freedom and human rights. He also reported no breakthroughs toward reducing China’s massive trade surplus, overhauling its currency system or protecting intellectual property rights. The president took satisfaction simply in the fact that Hu mentioned human rights when the two leaders made joint statements to the press. “Those who watch China closely would say that maybe a decade ago, a leader wouldn’t have uttered those comments,” Bush said. “He talked about democracy.” Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice complained that “we’ve certainly not seen the progress that we would expect” on a months-old U.S. request for action by China on specific human rights cases. Bush said the United States had presented a list of “dissidents that we believe are unfairly imprisoned.” When a reporter suggested Bush had seemed unenthusiastic in the joint appearance with Hu, the president responded, “Have you ever heard of jet lag?” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Bush’s stop in this poor and sparsely populated nation came at the end of a weeklong Asian tour. The visit was a reward for Mongolia’s pursuit of democracy and support for the U.S. fight against terrorism. After participating in the welcome ceremony outside the Government House, Bush and Mongolian President Nambaryn Enkhbayar headed to the building’s courtyard and entered a white tent known as a ger where the two presidents met privately. Gers are round, easily packable felt tents that are well-suited to life in Mongolia’s harsh climate and nomadic culture. The one the presidents used was ornate with a red and yellow design on the roof and red wood doors. Inside were red brocade chairs, tapestries, Oriental carpets and a large, white statue of Genghis Khan. “Thank you for your hospitality,” Bush told Enkhbayar, shaking his hand. “Such an honor to be here.” last_img read more

Timmer Continues To Exemplify The Bulldog Way

first_imgTimmer has also had to learn how to deal with being a marked man on the court, always getting significant attention on the opponent’s scouting report.”He’s worked hard at just letting the game come to him,” Rutter said. “During some stretches, the best thing he can do is moving the ball to the next guy, which is a lot easier said than done for a natural scorer. And he’s a team-first guy. All he cares about is our team and the success of our team. That’s what he hangs his hat on. He could care less about being a 1,000-point scorer or the different records and accolades. He has a burning desire to help this team be successful.” “You’d be hard-pressed to find a better representative of our program and the “Bulldog Way’ than Reed,” Rutter said. “We’ve obviously very proud of him.” Print Friendly Version We offer a recent week in Timmer’s life to provide a window into what it’s like to walk in his shoes. The “Bulldog Way” is the cornerstone of Drake’s athletic culture and department as a whole, stressing things like integrity, commitment to excellence, outworking and outhustling opponents and maximizing potential while aspiring to greatness. “When I was recruited here, I talked with the academic departments and with (athletic director) Sandy Hatfield  Clubb, and they made it pretty clear that I could do it,” Timmer said of the academic and athletic demands. “They never said it would be easy. But if you really want to do it, you can do it. I didn’t take that lightly. Ever since I’ve been here, they’ve done a really good job of working with me and making it work. Because I know if I had tried to do this somewhere else it may not be the same story.” “He is a very good leader,” Rutter said. “He has a lot of poise about him. Never too high, never too low. Really grounded. Reed has several qualities that make him who he is. Driven. Focused. Competitive. Intelligent. Confident. And it’s been a lot of fun working with him over the last three years.” Juggling two worlds is not easy. But Timmer has mastered time management while using his athletic skills to get an education at a high-level academic institution. His name is Reed Timmer, a junior guard working toward a Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D) degree. The same guy, the two-time Missouri Valley Conference Scholar-Athlete of the Year, who has already become one of the Top 10 scorers in program history. “He has clearly mastered the balance of academics and basketball, and has done it at a very high level,” Drake Coach Jeff Rutter said. Timmer’s success in the classroom is extraordinary. He was recently named to the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) Academic all-District team. But basketball offers him a feeling of success outside the classroom that he cherishes just as much. Timmer is balancing basketball with the 18 hours of classwork on his schedule the second semester. Because of the afternoon times some of his required classes were offered, the team practices at 7 a.m. on Tuesday and Thursday so he can make things work. Timmer selected Drake over Ohio, Toledo, Illinois-Chicago, Loyola of Chicago and a few Ivy League options. It’s been a demanding season for Timmer on the basketball court, with fewer victories than he had hoped for and a coaching change to deal with. But his effort has remained steadfast. The Bulldogs returned from a Tuesday night game at Evansville around midnight.  Timmer made up a test he missed on Wednesday, had two more tests Thursday and three more on Friday. That Saturday, he passed Ken Harris and moved into 10th on Drake’s career scoring list with his 15 points in a one-possession loss to Missouri State. Timmer, Drake’s leading scorer the last two seasons, has more than 1,300 career points. “It definitely takes a lot of planning,” Timmer said. “I’ll think about a week ahead. I have a calendar of all the tests, all the stuff I have to study for, and then integrate that with the practice plan and what we have for games. I plan out my whole day, even coordinated naps or rest time. The biggest key is to take time to relax. Because if you run yourself too dry, you’re going to blow yourself up mentally.” This semester, Timmer is taking a lab in pharmacy skills and classes in Principles of Drug Action, Social and Administrative Pharmacy, Pharmaceutics, Pathophysiology and Pharmaceutical Calculations. He’s in the third year of a six-year program: two years in pre-Pharmacy, then four years in the professional program. “You can only play basketball as long as your body allows you to,” said Timmer, who is from New Berlin, Wis. “I was really just trying to focus on bettering my life well past basketball. I had an opportunity to take advantage of this program and this school. I feel like some student-athletes might focus too much on basketball, and not focus on school until maybe basketball is over. If you can do it at the same time, why not take advantage of it? I take great pride in that.” “Basketball is such a special thing,” Timmer said. “It teaches you so many of life’s lessons. And it teaches you discipline. I’ve used what I’ve learned on the basketball court in school and in real life. It’s definitely something Coach Rutter has instilled in us, and that’s to enjoy the journey. It may not be about wins and losses all the time.” By: Rick Brown – 11-time Iowa Sportswriter of the YearSpecial to www.GoDrakeBulldogs.comWant to meet a true blue student-athlete?

Crime lit in SA – a new phenomenon

first_imgMike Nicol’s crime novel Killer Country has received positive reviews.(Image: Mike Nicol)South Africans like to talk about crime. It creeps into conversations at dinner parties, in shebeens, on radio talk shows and in parliament.Perhaps it was only a matter of time, then, until all that talking fostered creative writing and reading – not just in newspaper and magazine articles or online, but in books. South Africa’s publishers, booksellers and literary communities are all in a stir over “crime lit”.Literary websites like Book SA and LitNet are dedicating an increasing proportion of their content to so-called krimis. Earlier this year, literary journal WordsEtc brought out a special issue on the phenomenon, guest edited by Joanne Hichens, herself a crime writer. The publication featured interviews with, among others, the local queen of crime fiction, Margie Orford.Most recently, the inaugural BookEx book fair in Johannesburg hosted CrimeWrite, the first festival of its kind in the country. Organiser Mike Nicol expressed some disappointment at the turnout, but affirmed nonetheless that the writers participating showed “they can deliver the goods … there is a great marketing opportunity here.”“Pulp fiction with hardboiled prose”Nicol, a self-confessed krimihead, is the doyen of the South African crime writing scene and its most ardent promoter. This is quite something for a man who used to feel only disdain for the genre.He describes his crime novels as “pulp fiction with hardboiled prose”, and is unashamed about the formulaic requirements of much popular writing – in particular, he is critical of “academics who haven’t yet got their heads around the idea that commercial fiction has a completely legitimate place in any society’s literary life”.In penning these words, Nicol no doubt had in mind a review of his book Killer Country by literary scholar Leon de Kock of Stellenbosch University. The debate amongst members of the Book SA community following this review demonstrated the false perception that professional academics look down from their ivory towers on popular books, their readers and their writers.De Kock’s review in fact praises Nicol’s writing, but poses some important questions nonetheless: what does it mean for a former writer of serious literary works to turn his hand to genre fiction? Is this a process of dumbing-down in order to gain as wide a readership as possible? And if so, what assumptions are being made about readers? More specifically, why is it that so many writers have, like Nicol, chosen to focus their careers on crime writing?These are important questions, particularly in a country such as South Africa. There are ethical implications to representing the phenomenon of crime in the pages of a book – not least because writing for entertainment and writing for edification are by no means mutually inclusive.This dilemma is linked to the problem of definition. What is crime writing? After all, you would be hard pressed to identify any South African book (including those by our Nobel Prize-winners) in which transgression of the law is not a central theme. As such, crime has always been pervasive in South African literature.A useful distinction can, however, be made between fiction and non-fiction crime writing. One of the panel discussions at the CrimeWrite festival included well-known non-fiction authors Peter Harris, Antony Altbeker, Martin Welz and Chris Marnewick – all of whom have written about true crime in earnest engagements with South Africa’s crime epidemic. For the most part, however, when people refer to crime writing they mean what Nicol himself calls “schlock fiction”. This is, more or less, writing according to a set of conventions already established by authors from countries where crime is not as serious a social problem as it is here.Vicarious gratificationThose who defend crime fiction in South Africa could present a moral case if they wished to: in a country where, all too often, justice does not take its course, krimis offer a kind of vicarious gratification. As Nicol admits, crime novels tend to conclude with the triumph of moral justice, if not of the justice system: they appeal to a reader’s “innate desire to have good stomp all over evil”.But it’s not that simple. Many crime novels, in true realist form, reject neat endings in which the goodies beat the baddies; moreover, it’s not always that easy to tell the good guys from the bad guys.“One of the things that attracted me to crime fiction,” adds Nicol, “is the moral ambiguity it creates. There are no angels.”Likewise, crime writers do not claim any moral high ground for themselves. That WordsEtc cover image of Margie Orford is suitably ambiguous: looking sombre as she pulls on a white glove, Orford could either be a detective about to get to work or a murderer about to commit a heinous crime.Quoting Raymond Chandler’s observation that “crime fiction is a parody of itself, as tongue-in-cheek as it gets”, Nicol suggests that krimis mock “the author, the novel and the reader. It’s a game. Crime fiction confronts serious social issues but simultaneously says, don’t take me seriously.”An entertaining reading experienceIndeed, there seems to be consensus among South Africa’s crime writers that their vocation is fun – just as they want the reading experience to be entertaining. Yet the awkward question remains: what happens when writing and reading pleasure involves voyeuristic violence? There are no clear answers.A glance at the promotion tables in local book retailers provides evidence enough that South African readers are not reluctant to buy crime fiction from international authors such as Stieg Larsson and Ruth Rendell. This would suggest that most consumers see krimis as a form of escapism, which may be one reason why they avoid locally-produced crime lit: it is simply too close to the bone.But the major reason is, unfortunately, that South Africans are generally still hesitant to spend their time and money on works by South African authors.As Nicol laments, “Often we need to be ratified by overseas publication before local readers will buy our books.”This trend is slowly being reversed, and more and more South African books are on the shelves. If South African crime writing does prove to be as popular as is hoped by local practitioners of the craft – from veterans such as Deon Meyer and Wessel Ebersohn to newcomers like Sara Lotz and Sifiso Mzobe – then it may well help to grow a reading culture across the country.The last word can be left to Nicol: “It’s not so much a matter of dumbing-down as a new kind of book being written. The high literature will remain but readers now have more choice when it comes to buying local fiction. The trick is to make them aware of that choice.”last_img read more

South Africa issues Nelson Mandela commemorative stamp

first_imgSouthAfrica.info reporter and Nelson Mandela Foundation The South African Post Office and the Nelson Mandela Foundation have launched a special stamp to commemorate the life and legacy of the late Nelson Mandela.While this is not the first stamp issue featuring Mandela, it is the first to be issued since he passed away on 5 December.It was released on Tuesday, 11 February – exactly 24 years since Mandela’s release from Victor Verster Prison in Cape Town on 11 February 1990 – as part of a philatelic souvenir folder containing a high-quality miniature sheet depicting Mandela along with a brief summary of his life history.Each souvenir folder costs R50 and is available at all post offices, as well as online at South Africa’s Virtual Post Office. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the stamps will be donated to the Mandela Foundation.This is the fourth stamp issued by the Post Office in honour of Mandela. The first came out in 1993, when Mandela won the Nobel Peace Prize, the second in the following year when he became the first black and democratically elected president of South Africa, and the third when he turned 90 in 2008.Speaking at the launch of the stamp at the Nelson Mandela Centre of Memory in Johannesburg on Tuesday, Johan van Wyk, senior manager of philately at the South African Post Office, said the organisation was especially proud of this contribution to the history of Mandela.“As far back as a year ago we were already working on a design,” Van Wyk said in a statement issued by Mandela Foundation. “That was premised on the fact that as much as we did not want him to die, we were aware of his mortality. So this design was coming from the perspective of a country in mourning – the focus was on grief.“But in December, when he died, the mood in the country was that of a nation wanting to celebrate his life and legacy – yes, we were sorry for his passing, but we wanted to focus on his contribution. And in one weekend, the design changed completely.“We are very proud of our efforts,” Van Wyk said. “We see our stamps as the smallest ambassadors for the country, but this one means more than that. It represents our contribution to his life and legacy, and through us issuing that stamp, we became a part of history.”Getty Simelane, a director at the South African Post Office, said the issue of the stamp “has made it possible for many people the world over to share in memories of Madiba. We believe that Madiba, the most passionate democrat the world has ever seen, would approve.”last_img read more
