Leafs ride hot streak of netminder Brett Soles past Border Bruins

first_imgFriday, it was sniper Colton McCarthy that made like easier for Soles.The Salmon Arm prospect scored two of his three goals before the game was 10 minutes old giving Nelson a 2-1 first period lead.McCarthy converted the hat-trick in the second with his second power play marker of the game to push the margin to 4-1.In the third Nelson padded its lead to secure the win, a league-high 21st of the season.“(The two Colton’s) McCarthy and Schell are both playing really well right now,” said Soles.“They’re both at the top of the scoring race. And when (Jacob) Boyczuk on that line it’s probably one of the best in the entire league.”Schell finished the game with three points, including two goals to continue to lead the KIJHL in scoring with 18 goals and 26 assists for 45 points.Dustin Reimer, who went toe-to-toe against Luke Jones of Grand Forks in one of the best fights in the league this season, scored the final goal for the Leafs.Connor Gross and Dakota Kittle replied for the Bruins.Nelson out shot the Bruins 30-17 in the game making it a total of 91 shots put at Grand Forks goalie Robert Dunsmuir.The Bruins were able to bounce back from Friday’s loss to edge Kimberley 5-4 in Grand Forks. The win was the fourth of the season for the improving Bruins.In a quirk in the schedule, the Leafs and Bruins do it all over again Wednesday night at the NDCC Arena in Nelson.Puck drop is 7 p.m.GAME NOTES: Nelson, finishing the month of November with a 10-0-0-1 record, leads the Castlegar Rebels by three points in Murdoch standings. . . .The game was the third time new assistant coach Brent Petrick has been behind the Leaf bench. The former Nelson Minor Hockey and Kootenay Ice skipper joined the Leafs staff after former assistant Stuart Linnen was forced to leave the team due to work commitments . . . . Major Midget goalie Adam Maida served as back-up to Soles after playing Thursday night in Grand Forks. Maida was called up after Cody Boeckman was called up to the Trail Smokies after the BCHL club lost a goalie for the weekend due to injury. . . The night was a success for the Salvation Army Food Bank, which accumulated more items for its shelves on Vernon Street. . . . The Kootenay Wildcats were also on hand raising funds for a trip to a major girl’s hockey tournament in Saskatchewan. . . .During the second period fans were treated to a T-shirt giveaway by Mallard’s Source for Sports. The local sports store used a T-shirt launcher to fire the prized items into the stands. Brett Soles doesn’t like to be called the “guaranteed win” goalie.But the Cranbrook native seems to be a prime candidate for the title after registering his 12th win against no losses Friday night as the Nelson Leafs dumped the feisty Grand Forks Border Bruins 6-2 in Kootenay International Junior Hockey League action at the NDCC Arena.Not only did Soles hit the magic dozen mark but the Leafs also won its fourth straight to take a three-point lead in the hotly contested Murdoch Division.“It’s going good . . . but I wouldn’t say “guarantee” every game,” the mild-mannered Soles said after Friday’s win.“We’re battling every game. I don’t want to be cocky and say we’re going to win every game,” adds the 17-year-old netminder.“We battling every game and just happen to be coming out on the right end right now.”Soles arrived on the scene with little fanfare.After seeing more shots than a rifle range last season with the Kootenay Ice of the B.C. Hockey Major Midget League, the Leaf rookie made his mark early as he and teammate Cody Boeckman quickly unseated returning goalie Patrick Defoe for the team’s two goaltending positions.Slotted into the goaltending rotation, the 5’11”, 165 backstop has put together quite a remarkable season with 12 wins, a 2.00 goals against average and a .917 save percentage.“I don’t know . . . the boys always help me out a lot,” said Soles when asked about the streak.“I keep them in the games and other times they keep me in it. Right now I’ve always been able to come out on top which has been good.”last_img read more

20-CENT GOLDEN PICK 6 HIT FOR $363,424 AT GOLDEN GATE FIELDS; TICKET PURCHASED ON-TRACK FOR JUST $9.60

first_imgAfter losing his 2015 debut – he finished second to G. G. Ryder in a one-mile allowance race on the turf on New Year’s Day – Pepper Crown is not expected to be the public’s choice in Saturday’s 1 1/16-mile allowance feature on Tapeta. Golden Gate Fields morning-line maker Steve Martinelli has Pepper Crown listed as the 3-1 third choice in the field of six behind 2-1 favorite G. G. Ryder and 5-2 second choice Tamarando.G. G. Ryder, who has seven victories in 15 career starts, and Tamarando, the 2014 El Camino Real Derby winner, are both trained by Jerry Hollendorfer. A jackpot-style wager held on the final six races each day, the Golden Pick Six is only paid in full when there is just one perfect ticket with all six winners. When there is more than one ticket with all six winners, 70 percent of the net pool is paid to those handicappers going 6-for-6 and the remaining 30 percent of the pool is carried over to the next racing day. Pepper Crown was sent to the gate at 10-1 in the $63,170 Rolling Green Stakes on Sept. 1 and paid $23.20 after winning the 1 1/16-mile turf race by a head over Salah Champ. Pepper Crown was 15-1 when he completed his stakes hat trick in the Grade 3 $100,315 Berkeley Handicap onNov. 30. Pepper Crown won the 1 1/16-mile race on the synthetic Tapeta racing surface by1 1/4 lengths over G. G. Ryder and paid $23.20.A California-bred son of Peppered Cat, Pepper Crown went 6-for-14 in 2014 with two seconds and two thirds, earning $272,937 on the year. First post Saturday is 12:45 p.m., and post time for the eighth race is 4:24 p.m. The field for the $33,000 allowance feature, in post position order with riders and morning-line odds, is as follows: Quick and Silver, Frank Alvarado, 7-2; G. G. Ryder, Ricardo Gonzalez, 2-1; Where’s Pepper, Carson Sullivan, 30-1; Pepper Crown, Juan Hernandez, 3-1; Tamarando, Russell Baze, 5-2; and Mobilized, Dennis Carr, 6-1. Since being hit for $8,391 on Dec. 27, the second day of the winter/spring meeting, there had been 31 consecutive racing days without a singular winning ticket. Although fans across the country can play the Golden Pick 6 via simulcast wagering, it’s likely a Bay Area resident got the money as the winning ticket was purchased at Golden Gate Fields. The drought came to an end Friday when one lucky handicapper correctly selected the following winners in the Golden Pick 6 sequence: Princess Ofst.jude ($61.00) in the second race, Awesome Silver ($9.20) in the third, Kat Proof ($7.00) in the fourth, Prince Charmant ($14.00) in the fifth, Kimnjet ($9.20) in the sixth, and Global Harbor ($9.00) in the seventh. Owned and bred by Alex Paszkeicz, Pepper Crown made his stakes debut in the Grade 3 $100,315 San Francisco Mile on April 26 and came from just off the pace to post the biggest upset in the 64-year history of the feature. Dismissed at odds of 46-1, Pepper Crown defeated6-5 favorite Summer Hit by three-quarters of a length in Northern California’s top turf race and paid $94.20. ALBANY – The 20-cent Golden Pick 6 was hit for $363,424 Friday at Golden Gate Fields when only one ticket nailed all six winners in races two through seven. The ticket was purchased on-track for just $9.60. There were no winning favorites in the Golden Pick 6 sequence.      Upset Specialist Pepper Crown Runs Saturday – The racehorse Pepper Crown, who will compete in the eighth race at Golden Gate Fields Saturday, can relate to the late, great comedian Rodney Dangerfield, whose signature line was, “I get no respect.” Pepper Crown won stakes after stakes at Golden Gate Fields last year while getting no respect from handicappers.last_img read more

SA, Europe in Earth observation pact

first_img10 December 2012 The South African National Space Agency and the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre have signed an agreement to collaborate in using remote sensing technologies to monitor the environment to help improve international disaster risk management. According to a statement released by the Joint Research Centre (JRC), the agreement aims to “better exploit remote sensing technologies for monitoring atmospheric, terrestrial and marine environments”. The JRC is the European Commission’s in-house science service and is actively involved in working with national and international partners on crisis management technologies; analysis and application of remote sensing data; natural hazard modelling; information mining and analysis for vulnerability assessments; and civil engineering. The collaboration agreement was signed in Brussels, Belgium last Thursday at a high-level meeting on scientific collaboration to improve disaster anticipation and resilience. The meeting was initiated by commissioner for research, innovation and science, Maire Geoghegan-Quinn, and included senior officials of the European Commission. the World Bank and the United Nations. “Science and technology offer key solutions to improve preparedness and response to natural and man-made disasters, including those related to climatic change,” the JRC said. “The scope of this agreement is to work together on a better understanding of dynamics and evolution of our natural environment through optimal exploitation of Earth observation data and to develop technologies and services which support not only national policies – [such as] agriculture monitoring – but also international issues and policies for disaster risk reduction, early warning and emergency management.” It was also expected that the signing of the agreement would assist in “fostering partnerships to advance international scientific collaboration”, the Commission said.

Durban developer’s mobile app scores in Nokia competition

first_imgMatt Cavanaugh’s mobile TapShoot app means no-one’s left out of a group photo. (Image: Matt Cavanaugh)• Matt CavanaughOwner, roguecode+27 (0)74 157 6483 [email protected] Aneshree NaidooMatt Cavanaugh’s TapShoot application allows mobile phone users to take photographs via remote control so that no-one is left out of the picture.A Windows phone developer based in Durban, KwaZulu-Natal, Cavanaugh’s app earned him runner-up status in the Nokia Future/Capture contest, held in Sweden in 2013. The contest is a forum for Windows phone developers to submit their most creative image-related application ideas for phones using the Windows operating system. It attracts developers from around the world.The 2013 event, which took place in Held, Lund, involved 10 teams – six soloists and four pairs – programming for more than 27 hours to produce their applications. Rudi Chen and Shida Li, from the University of Waterloo in Canada, won the contest with their Smart Resizing app, which lets users edit phone pictures without compromising the image quality.Cavanaugh, a mostly self-taught developer, says entry into the competition was secured by having “an awesome idea”.Worldwide mobile usageMobile applications, or apps, are generally easy-to-use software applications that allow phone users to do everyday activities such as banking, sending messages, looking up directions and taking photos and videos. Their popularity is soaring, as mobile usage grows rapidly across the globe. Mobithinking, a research company that provides mobile trend data to marketers, estimates that by the end of 2017, there will be some four billion app users worldwide.Silicon India recently reported that the number of “active cellphones will reach 7.3 billion by 2014”, and in South Africa, according to the 2014 World Wide Worx Mobility report, some 10 million smartphones were sold in 2013. Most apps work on smartphones, but even basic phone apps such as SMS (Short Message Service), or texting, are still hugely popular.Popular apps often solve everyday problems, such as letting users apply for jobs or edit images on their phones. Cavanaugh explains his app to Nokia SA: “If you want to take a photo of yourself [and friends etc.] someone either has to sit out of the photo to take it, or you need to hand your phone to a stranger – neither of which is ideal. So this app is made purely to solve that problem.”The everyday aspect of applications is what attracted Cavanaugh to working in the field: “Being able to create something that people use every day of their lives is pretty cool. It’s like inventing bread – but with less flour.” Through his company, Roguecode, he has developed News24’s MyEdit, which lets readers streamline the information they want to receive from their favourite publications. The application, an aggregator, also learns what its user’s tastes are, to further streamline the content it presents.Cavanaugh says apps “should be beautiful and fast… If something isn’t nice to use, then your hundreds of features probably won’t get touched.”His favourite and most-used apps meet these requirements. “My favourite app would probably be Readit – which is a reddit client,” he says. Reddit aggregates news from users and publishes those stories with the most reader votes. He also regularly uses social media application Twitter, messaging service WhatsApp, and Toshl Finance. “But the app I couldn’t live without is Nokia Camera.”His favourite devices are the Lumia 620, 920, 1020, and 1520, but he’s “torn between the 1020 which has as awesome camera, and the 1520 which has an awesome screen”.App development in South AfricaCavanaugh believes there are some world-class products coming out of South Africa, but that there should be more. “A lot more companies are popping up in Durban doing great work.” Of the Durban programming community, he says: “It isn’t as vibrant or large as I would like, but we’re definitely getting there – so hopefully the laid-back mindset here will start to fade.”Through Roguecode Cavanaugh has “ended up doing a hobby for a living”. Ultimately, he wants to get his applications “into people’s pants [pockets] around the world”. TapShoot is well on its way there; the app is available on the Nokia Collection store category, on all Nokia Lumias, for free as a trial version, or for $1 for the full version.last_img read more

Acsa signs deal with Ghanaian airports company

Acsa is responsible for South Africa’s nine major airports.Source: Airports Company South Africalast_img read more

Young England stifle Neymar’s Brazil

first_imgCPP denies ‘Ka Diego’ arrest caused ‘mass panic’ among S. Tagalog NPA There was a samba band in the away fans’ section and the visitors’ forward forays drew shrill cheers from their yellow-shirted compatriots in the stands, but Brazil’s football was all style and little substance.Jesus worked Hart with a near-post header from a Dani Alves cross 12 minutes in.Yet for all their back-heels and bravado, Brazil made few inroads, with Paris Saint-Germain superstar Neymar twice ballooning shots high into the seating behind Hart’s goal.England worked Brazil goalkeeper Alisson only once before half-time and he had little trouble fielding a rasping drive from Marcus Rashford.Ruben Loftus-Cheek, who had starred on his debut against Germany, would last only 34 minutes on his return to Wembley as injury obliged him to cede his place to Jesse Lingard.Brazil created their first clear chance early in the second period when Neymar’s pass freed Coutinho, only for the recalled Hart to block with his legs.Substitute Fernandinho went even closer with 14 minutes remaining, but after a surging run from halfway, his low 25-yard effort grazed the left-hand post.A spate of substitutions had the effect of opening up space in the England half, but still the hosts resisted.Ashley Young marked his return after four years in the international wilderness by sliding in to block from Willian seconds after coming on, while Hart stood up well to thwart Roberto Firmino from Neymar’s pass.Solanke, 20, might have claimed a famous winner at the death when Young’s deep cross from the left found him unmarked at the back post, but Alisson slid out bravely to block.
