“We want to focus on a sound skills base and a pipeline of technically-skilled individuals,” Mangcu said. “The automotive industry is strongly driven by technological advancement, and we have a severe shortage of technical skills.” Each learner will have the opportunity to be mentored by a dealership for four months. During this time they will complete their portfolio of evidence for their final assessments, putting theoretical studies into practise. In a statement this week, MBSA corporate affairs manager Nobuzwe Mangcu said the company shared the concern and commitment of the South African government to educate and equip the country’s youth with skills. MBSA and MerSeta will provide funding of R1.4-million per year, while St Anthony’s staff will provide the training competence for the theoretical part of the programme. 27 January 2012 On the job training Mercedes-Benz South Africa (MBSA) is initiating a technical learnership at the St Anthony’s Centre in Boksburg, east of Johannesburg, to help address the shortage of appropriately skilled technicians in the country’s automotive sector. MBSA has enlisted the assistance of their dealer network, which comprises 87 dealerships across the country, to expose the learners to the workplace, and provide on-the-job training. The learners receive a stipend during this practical training phase, which also includes a month’s exposure to Mercedes-Benz’s specialised, product-specific maintenance training. The three-year pilot programme will see MBSA collaborating with the Manufacturing, Engineering and Related Services Sector Education and Training Authority (MerSeta) and St Anthony’s to provide NQF level three qualifications for an initial intake of 24 learners.

Troubled businessman Vijay Mallya has claimed that he paid a mere sum of USD 100 to buy Barbados Tridents, a franchise in the Caribbean Premier T20 League.Mallya left India last month amid attempts by creditors back home to recover Rs 9000 crore debt owed by the long-grounded Kingfisher Airlines.He bought the CPL team in February days before stepping down as chairman of United Spirits and subsequently also lost control over IPL franchise Royal Challengers Bangalore.Speaking to PTI, Mallya explained how he along with other shareholders bought Barbados Tridents for USD 100.”Everyone made a big drama about me acquiring the CPL team Barbados Tridents. It was an acquisition that was not made for any cash. The acquisition was made for just USD 100,” claimed Mallya.Talking more about the acquisition, Mallya said that cost of running the franchise will be around USD 2 million.”By buying the team, me and the other shareholders assumed the obligation to participate in the tournament. Now participation in CPL cost money. So I went to the Barbados government saying I need your support. I met the Prime Minister and the government agreed to support but I paid USD 100 only to buy the team.”Running the team will cost about USD 2 million but the Barbados government is granting subsidies to the franchise. People don’t get it and jump to conclusions without knowing the facts. There is a cost of participation such as players salaries and franchise fee. So I worked out all the numbers, studied the model and went to government asking for help.advertisement”They were keen to help me,” added Mallya, who is reportedly living in the UK.There is no central revenue in the CPL unlike the IPL, so teams can generate revenues only through ticket sales and sponsorship.Indian actor Shah Rukh Khan too has invested in a CPL franchise, which has been renamed as Trinbago Knight Riders, on the lines of his IPL team Kolkata Knight Riders.

Sophomore attackman Jack Jasinski heads for the goal in the fourth quarter during the first round of the NCAA tournament against Loyola Maryland on May 14, 2017. Credit: Sheridan Hendrix | Oller ReporterIn Saturday’s NCAA semifinal between the No. 3 Ohio State men’s lacrosse team and Towson, defense will be the name of the game.And if the early season matchup between these two teams is any indicator, it could be one of the lowest scoring games of the tournament.When the Buckeyes traveled to Towson, Maryland, earlier this year to take on the Tigers, redshirt senior goalie Tom Carey made eight saves and allowed just three goals in a 6-3 OSU victory.That emphasis on defense can be found in the NCAA leaderboards, where Towson can be found sitting at third for fewest goals allowed on average per game, sporting a miniscule 7.44 number. Of course, the Buckeyes haven’t been too shabby on defense either, sitting only six spots behind the Tigers, allowing just an average of 8.26 goals per game. But for OSU to find success, they will need to head into the matchup with an aggressive game plan like the Buckeyes applied in their matchup against Duke. In that game, players like senior attackman Eric Fannell were able to bully their way through the defense to put shots on net from just outside the crease.Part of Towson’s strength this season has been displaying an ability to box out and keep that opposing offense from getting in close. Despite ranking as one of the stingiest defenses for allowing goals this season, Towson’s goalies wound up averaging the fewest saves per game of any Division I goaltending unit in 2017.However, when the Tigers need their goalie to step up, they have been able to count on consistently strong performances from senior goalie Matt Hoy, who has allowed just 15 goals, while saving 21 shots on goal in upset victories over No. 8 Penn State in the first round and No. 2 Syracuse in the quarterfinals.Hoy did not begin the season as the starter, but has thrived in the role since taking over on April 1, posting a 7-1 record in games he started with only 6.99 goals against average and a .536 save percentage.That defense of Towson will certainly be tested against a Buckeye offense that had little trouble putting up 16 goals against a team that at the time ranked fifth in fewest goals allowed on average.The Buckeyes frequently found themselves in the front of the net, and were able to capitalize on nearly every opportunity, scoring on 51.6 percent of shots taken in the game. This ability to make the most of every shot has been a trend for the Scarlet and Gray this season as the team ranks eighth in shot percentage (.340).But the biggest test for the Tigers could come in finding enough offense to win the game. Though they have put up 22 goals in their two games thus far in the NCAA tournament, their offense currently ranks 46th among all Division I schools, averaging only 9.50 goals per game this season. While the Buckeyes will send out a pair of dynamic goal-scorers in freshman attackman Tre Leclaire – who was the Big Ten Freshman of the Year with a team-best 45 goals – and Fannell (34 goals), the Tigers have only one 30-plus goal scorer on the season – senior attackman Joe Seider. Seider had shortcomings against top-20 defenses this season as he has averaged just one goal per game in five contests. Three of those five goals for Seider came in just one game, against the No. 14 defensive unit in Hofstra.His team follows a similar trend of struggling against top-tier defensive teams, averaging just 7.8 goals per game and managing only a 2-3 record against such opponents. OSU, on the other hand, does not appear to lose a step against top-20 defenses, averaging 11.22 goals per game — less than half a goal below their season average — in nine contests against the nation’s best defensive teams.Given not only more experience against highly-ranked defensive units, but more success against them, the Buckeyes might appear to have a slight edge on paper. But the Tigers have overcome worse odds in the past, as evidenced by their wins over Penn State and Syracuse as the underdog on their way to their second-ever NCAA semifinal matchup.And for this pair of dynamic defensive units, it could simply just come down to who can score the last goal. The winner of the Towson-OSU game will face the winner of the matchup between No. 1 Maryland and No. 5 Denver on Monday at 1 p.m. in Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, Massachusetts.
Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola says Raheem Sterling should not be judged based on World Cup goals and also acknowledged that Sterling is both important for City as well as his national side with Gareth Southgate.“If you judge the players in the World Cup on whether you score a goal or not… I think Raheem has this special relationship with English football, but he is so beloved in the locker room,” the former Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss told a post-match news conference as quoted in Goal.“He made very good things in the World Cup – how he moves and creates spaces for the other ones, runs in behind.“He likes to score a goal. He tried but I am pretty sure that during the qualification for the European Championship he will be good for his country and sometimes score goals.”“His mum and dad gave him a special body shape,” he said. “He’s small, tiny – so these kind of guys in one week are ready.Guardiola: Sterling must ignore Ronaldo & Messi comparisons Andrew Smyth – September 13, 2019 Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola advised Raheem Sterling to ignore comparisons to Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, who he rates as incomparable.“We saw him be good in the training sessions. We needed a guy in that position and he did it well, except the last 20 or 25 minutes when he was a little bit tired. But that is normal.“There is sacrifice from a lot of the players – Kyle Walker, John Stones, Fernandinho. We trained just one week, two weeks – a short, short time, but the spirit is there and that’s the most important thing.” Great way to start the season, massive 3 points also really happy to have scored my 50th @premierleague goal today!!!!! pic.twitter.com/7B3iAGbNeJ— Raheem Sterling (@sterling7) August 12, 2018
