The streets of the sprawling Egyptian capital have added female taxi drivers, catering to female passengers only, to the traffic mix. Pink Taxi Egypt will offer women an alternative in an industry dominated by men; it will also be a possible solution to the harassment women experience.“We are currently working on receiving the necessary permits and preparing cars to start operating as soon as possible,” Pink Taxi Egypt (PTE) founders wrote on their Facebook page in June.“Our cars will be convenient and safe for female passengers… and will be easily identifiable. Each car will have a specific code for more safety and reassurance.”Here are some reactions on twitter: A similar service is underway in South Africa. The need for a female-only cab service is certainly catching on, but are there any? There is one such cab service in South Africa but it is only available in Johannesburg.,Cabs for Women. This initiative was started in 2008, and is sponsored by 1st for Women insurance.Robyn Farrell, managing director of 1st for Women Insurance Brokers, says that taxis driven by women, for women is not a passing fad but rather an effective solution for women travelling alone.Do you think introduction of this taxis will curb sexual harassment?

The Golden Bucks have had to handle that difficult stretch with a group of underclassmen looking to make its mark after a four-win campaign a season ago.Through all of it, though, Bucksport has found a way to improve with each passing game. Now, as the Golden Bucks head to the postseason for the ninth consecutive year, they’ll be doing so in peak form as winners of six consecutive games.“We have a young team with a lot of underclassmen, but our girls are in a good place mentally at this point in the season,” Bucksport head coach Mike Garcelon said. “I think we’re really playing good soccer and communicating well as a team.”Bucksport’s Addie Morrison scores a goal during the first half of a high school girls’ soccer game against Washington Academy on Oct. 21 at Bucksport High School. Morrison scored a hat trick to give Bucksport a 3-1 over Washington Academy in Monday’s regular season finale. RICK MCHALE PHOTOThis is placeholder textThis is placeholder textBucksport was faced with a daunting schedule to start the season with contests against Orono, Dexter and Central, three perennial Class C North challengers. After bookending a win over the Tigers with losses to the Red Riots and Devils, the Golden Bucks beat George Stevens Academy, Sumner and Mattanawcook Academy before losing rematches with Orono and Central to drop to 4-4.Then, on Sept. 30, the Golden Bucks got one of their biggest wins to date when they registered a 3-1 victory over a Calais team that entered the game with a 7-1 record. That marked the start of a six-game span that saw the Golden Bucks outscore opponents by a combined margin of 27-10 to finish the regular season with a 10-4 record.Arguably the biggest confidence-booster during that stretch, though, came in the Golden Bucks’ Oct. 4 contest against Washington Academy. That game saw the Golden Bucks fall behind by three goals in East Machias before storming back to earn a 5-4 win.“When we were down 4-1, I told the girls, ‘Listen, we’re going to come back, and we’re going to win this thing 5-4,’” assistant coach Sarah Lanpher said. “With each goal, they started to believe a little bit more, and they pulled it out.”Bucksport has gotten its goals from a variety of sources throughout the season. Between Addie Morrison’s three-goal game in Monday’s 3-1 win over Washington Academy in the regular season finale, Ella Hosford’s spree of multi-goal efforts and key tallies from Madison Frazier, Alyssa Maguire, Lanie Stubbs and a handful of others, the Golden Bucks have put opposing defenses on notice.“I think that’s a big difference for us this year,” Garcelon said. “In past years, we might have some players who could score for us, but having so many this year has really helped us step up our offense.”The Golden Bucks’ recent offensive breakthrough has been coupled with significant improvements in the defensive third. After conceding two or more goals six times in the first eight games, Bucksport has done so just once in the past six.Bucksport’s Alexis Wardwell defends against Washington Academy’s Siobhan Duffy during the first half of a high school girls’ soccer game Oct. 21 at Bucksport High School. The fifth-ranked Golden Bucks (10-4) will take on No. 4 Orono (8-3-3) in next week’s Class C North quarterfinals. ELLSWORTH AMERICAN PHOTO BY MIKE MANDELLBoth offensively and defensively, Bucksport owes much of its success to its strong rotations. The Golden Bucks have a number of players who can play anywhere on the pitch, adding versatility in the team’s back four, midfield and attack.“We’ve really stressed being able to rotate well, especially on defense,” Lanpher said. “It’s important that you have players who can help your team in different ways, and I think we’ve seen a lot of that.”The fifth-ranked Golden Bucks will look to avenge two of their four losses this season when they travel to face No. 4 Orono (8-3-3) in the regional quarterfinals. That game is scheduled for 3 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 29.“We’re confident, but we’re also putting in a lot of hard work,” junior midfielder Alexis Wardwell said. “Hopefully, we can make it far.”Eagles, Trojans, Mariners headed to playoffsBucksport won’t be the only Hancock County girls’ team headed to this year’s playoffs as Ellsworth, Mount Desert Island and Deer Isle-Stonington have also qualified for the postseason.The local playoff slate is set to begin Friday, Oct. 25, with two games scheduled for 3 p.m. starts. No. 9 Ellsworth (5-8-1) plays on the road against eighth-ranked Foxcroft (5-8-1) in the Class B North preliminary round, and the No. 12 Deer Isle-Stonington girls (4-8-2) will take on No. 5 Southern Aroostook (9-5) in a Class D North prelim game in Dyer Brook.MDI (12-2) earned a bye to the Class B North quarterfinals as the No. 3 seed in the region. The Trojans will host sixth-ranked Winslow (7-4-3) at 5 p.m. Tuesday.

DAMBULLA, Sri Lanka (Reuters) – India opening batsman Shikhar Dhawan smashed an unbeaten 132 off 90 deliveries to help his side thrash hosts Sri Lanka by nine wickets in the first of five one-day internationals on Sunday.Sri Lanka were well-beaten in the recently concluded three-test series against India, losing the first two matches inside four days and the last one in three to be whitewashed 3-0.If the home fans had hoped the change in format would bring a change in fortune, they were left bitterly disappointed with India breezing to their 217-run target in under 29 overs.Left-handed Dhawan, who scored his 11th hundred in the 50-over format, took India past their target with his 20th boundary with captain Virat Kohli remaining unbeaten on 82 from 70 deliveries.The duo added 197 in an unbroken second wicket partnership after India suffered the early loss of Rohit Sharma, who was run out for four after dropping his bat behind the crease.Having been adjudged the man of the series in the Tests, Dhawan, who also hit three sixes, continued to plunder runs off the Sri Lankan bowlers.He brought up his hundred in 71 balls and got to the three-figure mark with three fours in an over against leg-spinner Wanindu Hasaranga.Kohli was more measured in his approach and hit 10 fours and a six in his innings.Sri Lanka had appeared set to post a challenging total after Kohli won the toss and asked the hosts to bat first.Niroshan Dickwella and Danushka Gunathilaka added 74 in their opening stand before the latter played a bizarre reverse sweep to leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal to get caught out at cover for 35.Dickwella, who top-scored for the hosts with 64, continued the good work and added 65 for the second wicket with Kusal Mendis, who made a fluent 36.Sri Lanka looked well placed to score in excess of 300, but then the hosts collapsed, losing their next nine wickets for the addition of 77 runs.From 139-1 in the 25th over, Sri Lanka were bundled out for 216 with 40 deliveries still remaining in their innings.Left-arm spinner Axar Patel was the pick of India’s bowlers, taking 3-34 while Chahal, part-time off-spinner Kedar Jadhav and paceman Jasprit Bumrah picked up two wickets apiece.The second one-day international in the five-match series will be played in Pallekele on Thursday.
Shauli Bar-On, a junior majoring in political science, and Harmon Gill, a junior majoring in communication, were a part of the team that placed fifth, which puts them in a position to qualify for nationals. Michael Jeung, a senior majoring in political science, and Robert Ota, a senior majoring in communication, took ninth place. The team is applying to be a registered student organization for Spring 2020 and hopes to recruit more members in coming semesters. It also plans to compete in at least two tournaments next semester in Long Beach and San Francisco. The team took home fifth and ninth place at the Western Regionals last weekend at California State University, Fresno. It also won individual awards for the second- and ninth-best orators out of 70 people. “We’re really excited to be able to go to some of these tournaments with the new members that we’ll have in the spring because I think that’ll put us on the path to having a really really strong, grounded preparation for the fall for the next regionals,” Gill said. “These are skills that are typically developed in law school, precisely because it’s very difficult,” Elefano said. “It requires not just a command of one’s case — it requires a sort of command over the area of law that you’re dealing with.” “To be able to culminate that into a moot court competition with these very real and relevant issues … and we’re making very real legal arguments with very legal thinking on our part. I think it was a really cool and fascinating experience,” Gill said. Auerbach explained that the overall practice timeline included meeting with the team, analyzing different sides of issues and improving critical thinking skills. “I think the biggest challenge … was that we kind of just did this on our own,” Jeung said. “We saw that there was a niche in the body of undergraduate organizations that were available. And we saw that we wanted to fill that niche, we just did a leap of faith, and we just went after it ourselves.” The four students met three to four times a week in the evenings to prepare oral arguments and quizzed each other as judges. The team also received guidance from their faculty advisers associate professor of political science Arthur Auerbach, assistant professor of writing Antonio Elefano and student moot court competitors at the Gould School of Law, who posed as judges and asked hypothetical questions to simulate a competition trial. Elefano said pre-law students should join moot court to develop skills that could be required in law school and future legal professions, including appellate argumentation. “[We hope moot court students gain] the knowledge of law, what the legal profession itself,” he said. “Really just anything law-related since they can really … I’m not too familiar with moot court in general … We’re rooting for them as they compete but we also want to develop them as professionals and academically as well.” “It’s really just practice over and over and over and going through the different case law, as well as the fact pattern and understanding the sort of legal cleavages that are set out in the cases,” Auerbach said. Jim Lee, Gould’s assistant director of undergraduate recruitment and outreach, said he hopes the new undergraduate team will better introduce pre-law students to the field. After a four- to five-year hiatus, four students revived the undergraduate moot court team, which simulates appellate court trials, after realizing their common interest in criminal law during this year’s case competition. The undergraduate moot court members, including juniors Harmon Gill (left) and Shauli Bar-On (right), competed in the Western Regionals at California State University in Fresno. Gill and Bar-On’s team won fifth place. (Andrea Diaz | Daily Trojan) The typical moot court team prepares for competition season as early as the previous spring semester, Gill explained. However, since USC’s undergraduate team was formed in Fall 2019, the team only had one month to prepare.
It goes without saying that Badger fans were heartbroken following the team’s heartbreaking 61-56 loss Friday in the Sweet 16 of the NCAA tournament.They were sad — very, very sad.But I am here to tell you, as hard as it may be, to stop being sad because, believe it or not, others in the college basketball world are going through a much tougher time than you are. Badger fans continue to weep after a season of overachieving went wrong in 20 seconds, while other programs severely underachieved.Here are three things to consider as you stop crying over Wisconsin’s crushing defeat:Brazzoni: Missed opportunities paved way for Wisconsin’s heartbreaking collapseFollowing the University of Wisconsin men’s basketball team’s epic collapse against Notre Dame Friday March 25 in the NCAA Sweet Read…1. Look at KansasKansas was easily the most consistent and well-rounded team all season in college hoops. They were a senior-led team that shot as well from the outside as they did on the inside. The Jayhawks were also the clear favorite to win the national championship.There was plenty of optimism in a championship or bust year for Kansas, as fans were confident their team would return to the top for the first time since 2008.Head coach Bill Self and his Jayhawks, however, choked in the Elite Eight. It was one of the more impressive seasons in Kansas’ recent history and they didn’t even have a Final Four to show from it. Talk about actual disappointment.The state of Kansas right now… pic.twitter.com/jWSvvGvUzi— Fake SportsCenter (@FakeSportsCentr) March 27, 2016But not all is lost for Kansas, as while they lose their best player in forward Perry Ellis to graduation, every other important piece to their roster will likely return for another year in the program.2. Look at VirginiaThe stage was set for the Cavaliers.Michigan State, who has been the program’s kryptonite for the past two NCAA tournaments, unexpectedly lost in the first round to No. 15 Middle Tennessee. The next best team, Utah, was blown out by Gonzaga in the next round. After blowing past Iowa State in the Sweet 16, the only thing keep head coach Tony Bennett from the Final Four he has craved for years was a Syracuse team that many thought should have never been in the tournament.Naturally, in true Virginia fashion, the Cavaliers blew a 16-point lead against the Orange in the second half of their regional semifinal.Now, after losing its two top scorers, including one of the country’s best players in guard Malcolm Brogdon, Bennett and Virginia will have to work to replace nearly half of its scoring output.Another year, another missed Final Four for Bennett — despite once again having one of the most talented teams in the country — and another year of depressed Virginia fans.https://twitter.com/_MarcusD_/status/714248415190777856?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw3. Look at WisconsinIt’s been the narrative following this team all tournament: This team is overachieving after pulling off one of the most improbable turnarounds in the history of the sport.They lost to Xavier, a team that they were probably better than, but it also took a pair of miracle outside shots from junior guard Bronson Koenig for them to be in that situation.Men’s basketball: Badgers feel the sting of March, fall in Sweet SixteenIn a span of just 19 seconds, a third straight trip to the Elite Eight slipped out of Wisconsin’s grasp Read…The fact is they lost, and while underachieving teams like Kansas and Virginia will lose key pieces to their failed championship runs, the Badgers will not only likely return every player in their rotation next season, but they also add one piece many fans are forgetting about.Freshman forward Andy Van Vliet out of Belgium will be eligible to play next season, adding yet another offensive threat from both the inside and outside. Van Vliet is skilled far beyond his years, and after adding a bit of muscle to his 6-foot-11 frame this offseason, he will be more than ready for his sophomore season.Wipe your tears away and rest easy, Badger fans. The future is bright, and that’s not a luxury many other programs have at the moment.
The Federation of International Basketball Federations (FIBA) has congratulated the Nigeria Basketball Federation (NBBF), for being the first team in the world to qualify for the 2019 Men’s cup in China.The feat came days after the Female National Basketball team, D’Tigress made a brilliant outing at the just concluded FIBA Women World Cup in Tenerife, Spain, late last month. In a letter addressed to the NBBF President, Musa Kida, FIBA Secretary General, Patrick Baumann said, punching a ticket to the World Cup was not just extraordinary but one that the NBBF should be very proud of as the first country to land in China.“As we embarked on a new era with the 2019 FIBA Basketball World Cup Qualifiers, your early successful qualification, well before the end of the qualifications is a testimony to the strength of your team and of basketball in your country. Your Federation and its National Team can be proud of having achieved this important milestone and being part of the journey to China.” The D’Tigers under the tutelage of Alex Nwora who won a silver medal at the 2017 Afrobasket championship for men are currently on a 9-match winning streak and garnering 18 points in the process to become the first country in the world to qualify for the World Cup with 3 games left to play.The letter sent directly to the NBBF President read in part, “Allow me to sincerely congratulate you, your National Federation and your players, on behalf also of our president, Mr Muratore on the qualification of your National Team to the FIBA Basketball World Cup which will be held in China next summer.”Having already qualified, FIBA wished the federation the best of outing in the last official games coming up in February, 2019.They remain upbeat that the “FIBA Basketball World Cup in 2019 will be remembered for long and will mark a new era in the history of basketball and its World Cup.”Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram
Golden Race’s virtual sports products get Swedish certification June 18, 2020 StumbleUpon Share The industry wakes up to virtual sports potential June 26, 2020 Submit Share Golden Race proved a “big hit” with delegates at the 11th annual Global Gaming Expo Asia (G2E Asia), after presenting its new ONLINE platform in Macau (16-18 May).The virtual sports betting company recently launched its new designed virtual sportsbook, which has been carefully designed to be entirely familiar to real sports betting players. It can also be quickly integrated into existing websites.Golden Race CEO Martin Wachter commented: “We have worked very hard to recreate the experience from real sports betting, and provide it in a more cost-effective and manageable way. Asian people are used to doing everything on their phone and online, so our new platform has been a big hit here.”There was a noticeable increase in online solutions at G2E, a trend which event organisers expect will continue through into the 2018 event. However, judging by the popularity of the product demonstrations at the Golden Race stand, the company has a very competitive solution already.“Players don’t have to learn anything with our new ONLINE,” Wachter continued. “The look and feel is identical to real sports betting, and they can play from their mobile, tablet, or desktop – it’s the same authentic betting experience, wherever they are.” Golden Race gains ISO certification May 29, 2020 Related Articles
