Latest: West Ham 1 Fulham 0 – Diame’s goal leaves Whites trailing

first_imgFulham are in danger of a fifth consecutive defeat following Mo Diame’s goal shortly after the interval at Upton Park.Diame’s effort from near the edge of the penalty area deflected in off Whites defender Fernando Amorebieta, giving West Ham a deserved lead.With both teams’ under-pressure managers needing a victory, the Hammers dominated the early stages and almost went ahead when Mark Noble’s right-wing free-kick was headed against the post by Modibo Maiga.Martin Jol’s struggling Fulham team were also relieved to see James Collins’ header from Stewart Downing’s corner drift wide.Adel Taarabt started for the Whites in place of the absent Dimitar Berbatov and the visitors are again without Brede Hangeland.Taarabt looked dangerous at times as Fulham threatened on the counter-attack, but Sam Allardyce’s side continued to have the upper hand and Downing brought a save from Maarten Stekelenburg with a fierce 25-yard strike.Diame and Kevin Nolan then missed decent chances to put the hosts in front before the break.However, Diame broke the deadlock less than two minutes into the second half.The midfielder dispossessed Scott Parker and then nudged the ball away from Steve Sidwell, who should have done better, before trying his luck with a shot which struck Amorebieta, leaving Stekelenburg wrong-footed.West Ham remained on top after the goal, with Stekelenburg denying Maiga and Downing firing over.And they went close to doubling their lead when James Tomkins’ header from Matt Jarvis’ corner was cleared off the line by Darren Bent.Fulham (4-4-1-1): Stekelenburg; Zverotic, Hughes, Amorebieta, Richardson; Duff (Ruiz 60), Sidwell, Parker, Kasami; Taarabt; Bent.Subs: Stockdale, Senderos, Kacaniklic, Karagounis, Boateng, Dembele.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 Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

SA company to make Airbus parts

first_img26 August 2003South African aeronautical design and engineering company Aerosud is to commence production of aircraft sub-assemblies for the world’s best-selling jetliners, the Airbus A320 family.The contract forms part of Airbus’ offset obligation linked to the supply of 41 new jetliners to South African Airways. However, Aerosud won the business after Airbus and one of its aerostructures suppliers, Labinal, launched an open competition to identify the most suitable sub-contractor to produce avionics bay assemblies for the four members of the 107-185-seat A320 family, the A318, A319, A320 and A321.The avionics bay is located in the forward fuselage beneath the flight deck. While the cockpit instrument display screens present an interactive front-end between the pilots and the plane, the avionics bay is described as the aircraft’s “brain”, as this is where all of the back-end – sophisticated navigation, communications, flight management and flight control units and associated wiring harnesses – are located.Public Enterprises Minister Jeff Radebe said SAA’s selection of Airbus aircraft for its fleet modernisation programme had created this opportunity for South African skills and capabilities to collaborate “on arguably one of the world’s most technologically advanced and popular jetliner programmes.“This newest partnership is further proof that government’s statutory policy of leveraging international industrial participation through strategic state procurements does deliver new economic benefits to South Africa.”Aerosud is a privately owned company which designs and makes aerostructures and aircraft cabin interior fittings such as galleys, cabin dividers, crew rests and window panels. The company was established in Midrand in 1990, but recently relocated to a purpose-built facility adjacent to the Air Force Base in Waterkloof near Pretoria. Aerosud employs more than 300 people representing a wide variety of skills.Remarking on the new venture, Aerosud chief executive Paul Potgieter said: “Our focus has shifted 180 degrees since the mid-1990s, with virtually all of our output now being for the export market … This new contract marks the beginning of an exciting new relationship between Aerosud, Labinal and Airbus and we look forward to expanding this partnership into further areas of manufacturing.”The deal follows a similar export-oriented offset partnership launched last October between Airbus, NDT Expert, Bureau-Veritas and BEE group Black Economic Aviation Management Services. The agreement established a non-destructive testing and quality assurance centre in Gauteng to serve the local and foreign aerospace, automotive defence and other high-technology manufacturing sectors.SouthAfrica.info reporterlast_img read more

Derek O’Brien on minory communities of India and Pakistan

first_imgDerek O’BrienFor obvious reasons, the narrative of Partition has been written in terms of the subcontinent’s Hindus and Muslims. Christians have had only a small role in this drama. Anglo-Indians-the community I belong to and which makes up a minuscule section of India’s Christians-have had just a walk-on part.Yet Partition,Derek O’BrienFor obvious reasons, the narrative of Partition has been written in terms of the subcontinent’s Hindus and Muslims. Christians have had only a small role in this drama. Anglo-Indians-the community I belong to and which makes up a minuscule section of India’s Christians-have had just a walk-on part.Yet Partition had a dramatic impact on my extended family. My paternal grandfather was one of three brothers. The eldest of them was a civil servant who worked in Lahore and Peshawar, and served as private secretary to Sir Olaf Caroe, governor of the Northwest Frontier Province in the tumultuous days leading up to August 1947. Much of the rest of the family, including my father and grandfather, were in Kolkata (or Calcutta, as it was then called).One day, without quite realising its implications, these wings of the O’Brien family became citizens of separate countries. Within months India and Pakistan were at war. It was a conflict that tore apart my father’s cousin, daughter of his uncle who had stayed on in Pakistan. Her husband was a fighter pilot in the Indian Air Force, her brother-in-law a fighter pilot in the Pakistan Air Force. Night after night she stayed up, wondering if her husband would come home or if her brother-in-law was safe-or if these two men so dear to her, comrades and friends in the same air force till a few weeks earlier, would aim for each other in the eerie anonymity of the skies.Thankfully neither died in that war, but a distance emerged. Father and daughter, brother and sister, cousin and cousin, my Indian grandfather and his Pakistani brother-they lost touch with each other.advertisementToday, those times seem so far away. My brothers and I grew up in a very different environment in the 1970s and 1980s. We were not just a minority, we often joked, but a minority in a minority in a minority: Roman Catholics among Anglo-Indians among Indian Christians. Javed Khan, a friend and colleague in the Trinamool Congress, once told me in a lighter moment that Muslims were the “majority minority” and we Christians the “minority minority”.If you want a happy minority, create a happy society. If you construct a society with paranoia, pessimism and deprivation, you will never have a happy minority.Beyond those laughs, what does it mean to be a minority in India? Frankly, I don’t think I can give a complete answer and I doubt anyone can. I will try and explain it, though, from three angles-that of my family and me; my community; and the larger social contract between religious minorities and the nation we have built. These are reflections based on my experiences. They may or may not speak for everybody, but I hope they will explain in some measure the miracle of an India that allows someone from a minuscule minority to enter Parliament as representative of a largely Bengali party.I grew up in the only Christian family in a middle-class, predominantly Bengali-Hindu neighbourhood in Kolkata, living, in one of those ironies that make India just so captivating, in a lane named after a Muslim. There were three of us, three boys. From the beginning there was a need to fit in-not from the people next door, but from our own parents. We were encouraged to learn the local language.We lived in Kolkata and so the language we learnt was Bengali. If we’d lived in Jalandhar, we would have learnt Punjabi. Was this a defensive gesture? I don’t think so. India is an inclusive society, but that inclusiveness is as much for the minority to demand as for the minority to demonstrate. Learning the local language is an important step- and this is as true for a Kerala Christian in Kolkata as for a Punjabi Hindu in Kochi. Sometimes we stand out only because we want to stand out.Not everybody in our community saw things as my parents did. Many insisted on speaking in English and in a pidgin Hindi. Some decided India was not for them and migrated. The numbers in our churches and community gatherings declined. The Railways, the Post and Telegraph Department, the Indian school system-all those great institutions that had been Anglo-Indian bastions began to acquire a different flavour. The mood was downbeat.It began to change in the mid-1990s, as the Indian economy started to grow, throwing up new opportunities particularly in the services sector. Suddenly the very qualities that had made Anglo-Indians seem aloof, including their use of the English language, made them eminently employable. Today’s youth from my community are a far more confident lot and believe they have a greater stake in India. The skill-sets are the same, but the mindsets have changed, both internally and externally.advertisementCatholics gather outside the sacred heart church in Delhi, in November 2011.For me, the message is clear enough: If you want ahappy minority, create a happy society, with opportunity, hope and aspiration for everybody. If you construct a society with paranoia, pessimism and deprivation, you will not have a happy people-and never a happy minority.When discussing minorities, most discourse inevitably focuses on violence and religious riots. There is the argument that a system that is minority-friendly protects, for example, Muslims and Christians from violence. While not disagreeing, I find this argument limiting and a little tiresome.Security of life, limb and belief are not a privilege of a minority; they are an entitlement of every citizen. In providing them to its minorities, a government is not doing anybody a favour. It is only fulfilling its fundamental duty. To see minority rights from solely such a narrow prism is to my mind self-defeating.Postscript: In the year 1984, my brother Andy, then a sports journalist, travelled to Karachi for hockey’s Champions Trophy. He was determined to trace the lost O’Briens of Pakistan. Eventually he found them and renewed contact. My father’s uncle was dead, but the rest of the family was still there and greeted their Indian cousin very warmly. Most of my father’s generation and all of the next generation-my second cousins-had converted to Islam. The pressure had been too much. Being a minority in Pakistan was tough business.Andy came home and told us the strange and sombre story of the Muslim Anglo-Indian clan of Lahore and Karachi. We sat in silence, still digesting it. I thought of our life in India, the freedom to go to church, the freedom to practise my faith, the freedom to be myself, the freedom that my country gave its minorities. I’ve never felt prouder of being an Indian.-The author is the Trinamool Congress’ Chief Whip in the Rajya Sabha.last_img read more

Back to Business Yankees Clear Derek Jeter to Play

Derek Jeter has been cleared to play in a New York Yankees minor-league game this coming Saturday, the team announced today. The New York Yankees shortstop is scheduled to play no less than five innings for the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders in a game against Lehigh Valley.Jeter is working his way back from an ankle injury he suffered back on Oct. 13th. After surgery and a stint of rehab, he played five spring training games, where a new break was discovered on April 18th. As a result, he hasn’t played in a single game this season.Last season, before the all-star suffered the injury, he hit .316/.362/.429 (114 OPS+) while leading the majors in hits (216), plate appearances (740) and at-bats (683). So having Jeter back will definitely improve the lineup of the Yankees, if he gets back in to the swing of things. read more

Real Madrid fans want Antonio Conte as new boss
