Gibraltar yesterday - we took a tour, which was much better than just taking the cable car and walking around. Plenty of monkeys, the peak, limestone caves and British defensive tunnels dating from 1782/ used in WW2. Our guide was interested that we come from near the Gold Coast - his son is training to try out for the Gibraltar swim team for the 2018 Commonwealth Games , so he hopes to visit us. Great day, culminating in a very late, humongous lunch at an English pub, where my pie had more beef in it than I have seen in 3 weeks in Spain - don't know what they do with the rest of the bull when they ritually kill it; only the tail seems to end up on a plate. ;)

KOTZE DELIGHTED WITH STANDARD OF PLAY AT THE SPAR NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS Cape Town, South Africa – SPAR National Netball coach Elize Kotze was delighted with the standard of play at the national championships, which ended in Cape Town on Saturday, with Gauteng North beating Dr Kenneth Kaunda (North West South) 63-37 in the final. “It has been a fantastic tournament and I was very pleased to see the performance of senior players and also to see how many young players are coming through,” Kotze said. She said there were 11 months left before the world championships in Sydney next year, and the squad announced after the tournament gave her plenty to work with as she prepared for the next major challenge. “Several former Proteas, like Amanda Mynhardt, Vanes-Mari du Toit and Lindie Lombard, who didn’t go to the Commonwealth Games for various reasons, showed that they are still hungry for play for the Proteas, and I am delighted that they are back in the squad. “Amanda and Vanes-Mari worked brillian ...
Highlights of Prime Minister’s Address on Independence Day 1. Dear countrymen, on this auspicious occasion of Independence Day, many good wishes from the Prime Servant of India. I am here amidst you not as a Prime Minister but as the Prime Servant. 2. I bow to all freedom fighters who sacrificed and dedicated their lives for country’s independence. 3. Independence Day is an occasion to take a pledge for the welfare of all those who are down trodden, poor, exploited and oppressed and to do something for them. 4. Every action should be tested on the yardstick of national interest. If we resolve to live a life like that, the festival of Independence may become an inspiration to take India to new heights. 5. This country has been built not by the rulers but by farmers, workers, mothers and sisters, youth, sages and saints, teachers, scientists and social workers. 6. A child hailing from a small town and belonging to a poor family is today having the good fortune of bowing before India’s tricolour from t ...
The Glasgow Commonwealth Games 2014 got off at the Celtic Park in Glasgow in Scotland on 23 July 2014. The 2014 Games are the 20th Commonwealth Games. The Game was declared open by the British Queen Elizabeth II after more than two hours of colourful opening ceremony. In the opening ceremony the crowd was enthralled by performances of singer Rod Stewart, Susan Boyle and violinist Nicola Benedetti. During the ceremony a minute’s silence was observed in memory of the 298 people who died when flight MH17 crashed in the Ukraine. The players’ parade was led by India, by the virtue of being the previous hosts of Commonwealth Games in 2010. 2012 London Olympics silver medallist shooter Vijay Kumar led the Indian contingent.

SPORTS UPDATE WITH EMMAH ATAI; Manuel Pellegrini is not worried about Manchester City's Premier League preparations despite a heavy 3-0 defeat to Arsenal in the Community Shield curtain raiser. The Premier League champions looked second-best at Wembley with less than a week to go until they open the defence of their title against Newcastle. But their Chilean coach is still confident he can get his side up to scratch by the time they visit St James’ Park - and he also believes he could have a deal for Eliaquim Mangala wrapped up by then to boost City's threadbare defence. Meanwhile, Arsenal Manger, Arsene Wenger is excited by their goalscoring power. Wenger said: "Three, four, five years ago we lost a big player every year. In the last two years we’ve added players, like Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez. "I have more attacking options than I’ve had for a long time." Chelsea came from behind to beat Ferencvaros 2-1 in a pre-season friendly, but lost striker Didier Drogba to injury during the first half. ...

The policeman and policewoman who were pictured dancing in the opening ceremony of the Commonwealth Games (with Amy MacDonald ) have apparently been reprimanded because they were officially on duty and their behaviour was viewed as inappropriate by their seniors.

If being the top seeds for the Li-Ning BWF World Championships later this month is a good omen, then Malaysia’s Lee Chong Wei and Li Xuerui of China should be in a buoyant mood.

Both star shuttlers faltered in the finals of last year’s World Championships and will be keen to make amends at Ballerup Super Arena in Copenhagen. China’s Chen Long will be at the other end of the Men’s Singles draw as the No.2 seed while Jan O Jorgensen will be hoping the No.3 seeding brings him luck on home turf. Defending champion Lin Dan’s non-qualification for these championships means there will be a new king in Men’s Singles and the likes of Kenichi Tago of Japan and Indonesian, Tommy Sugiarto – seeded fourth and fifth respectively – will also fancy their chances of succeeding the five-time ...

NEWS UPDATES AT 8 O’CLOCK WITH ORANGE. The NRM Parliamentary Caucus is expected to convene today to pave a way forward on the issue of the Anti-Homosexuality Act 2014, which was annulled by the Constitutional Court. This follows 208 MPs vouching for the re-enactment of the Bill in parliament. These MPs want Parliament to put on hold the handling of the ongoing Budget process and first ensure the restoration of the anti *** law. There is also a request to the Speaker for the suspension of the House rules of procedure to allow the Bill to be passed without going through all the lengthy phases. Government has launched an investigation into two rugby players who have failed to return home following the recent Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.

When I was 17, I readied myself for University. My mum didn't want me to go. Not because she didn't want me to prosper, but because she didn't want to lose me. This is where Scotland is today. She has the experience, ability and intellect to move forward on her own and to prosper, building on the experience she has acquired. Of course there is fear, trepidation and anxiety. It's not easy to take that first step to leave when it's safer and easier to stay at home with all the stability and comfort that that brings. But that is stagnation. The opportunity of growth, control and self direction is lost forever. But the worst thing of all is that all of the hard work done to get to this point, is also lost. Scotland has proven itself worthy of its place through hard work, perseverance and ingenuity. This may have culminated with the the Commonwealth Games but just look at the sensational Scottish inventions and discoveries that came before: ▪ The television: John Logie Baird (1923) ▪ The refrigerator: Will ...

WHAT WILL WE BE? After the big debate and the pundits saying it might help the No vote, its time to analyse fully what that will mean for Scotland? What message will a No vote deliver to the London based political parties that lord over us in Westminster. Despite the success of the Commonwealth Games It will tell them and the world that the people of Scotland no longer think of themselves as a country and that we are content to be solely the northern region of England. We consider that the idea of Scotland as a country is finished and no more. That message will reverberate around the world and people will gasp with disbelief that such a rich country with so much talent, natural resources and successful industries is content to hand it all over to London to do with as they wish. It will tell the world that the Scottish people are content to be ruled by whomever the English people vote for, whether it be Tories like Thatcher or far right racist bigots like UKIP.

The use of the Bowen Therapy in sport With the 2014 Commonwealth Games just finished, perhaps you are feeling inspired to try a new sport or spend more time getting or keeping fit.

The Bowen Technique in becoming increasing recognised as a valuable therapy in the treatment of sports related injuries. Not only this but sports professionals are finding that they are staying injury/pain free for longer and also their performance is improving. The Bowen Technique is being used effectively for athletes in a wide range of sports such as football, rugby, martial arts, professional dancers, running, motor sports, tennis, cycling, swimming and golf to name a few! Bowen is being used effectively by Rugby League Leeds Rhinos, Premier League football teams including Manchester United, Newcastle United, Sunderland and various elite British athletes are amongst those to includ ...

Nice to see Gary Linekar having a pop at FIFA and their Pope Sepp Blatter over the suspicions of corruption surrounding World Cup finals being given to Russia and Quatar. But why does the knob head make such a statement during the Commonwealth Games? The time and place to be screaming his thoughts would surely have been better trumpeted when he was in Brazil covering the World Cup when anger against Blatter was an inferno not when everything has died down. But that's our Gary never be controversial it might embarrass the Beeb and shock us. He carries out his duties on the BBC like he did on the playingfield..steer clear of pain and controversy!

I will not be setting foot in the Counting House ever again, obviously staffed by bigoted bheasts. Rab A NORTHERN Ireland Commonwealth Games fan has been forced to leave a Glasgow bar for displaying his country's flag after workers argued it was sectarian. Colin Rice was in JD Wetherspoon pub The Counting House in George Square when he became embroiled in an argument with staff members after draping the flag -which features the red hand of Ulster symbol - over his table. The 47-year-old, from Belfast, and his friends eventually had their drinks taken from them and were asked to leave, as other Commonwealth fans - who were also displaying flags of their country - looked on shocked. Mr Rice said: "I'm here for the Commonwealth Games and I've taken in a lot of sports and everywhere I've went I've taken the flag of my country with me. "There were lots of people with different flags, Scottish, English, South African, and people wearing different tops to match too. " I put my flag on the table and within about ...

Very interesting to read a comment in Fethiye Times about the ups and downs of the local tourism.The World Cup,Commonwealth Games and government anti enjoyment taxes are some of the reasons put forward.If you include the new visa system along with the hike in cost of obtaining one it would appear that unless there's a last minute rush the local tourism trade will not have a good season.

One of the Army's greatest successes in the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games has been the 2nd Battalion The Royal Gurkha Rifles, who have been deployed as part of the Military Venue Security Force, supporting colleagues in Police Scotland in delivering a safe, secure and enjoyable Commonwealth Games, and charming the more than 50,000 members of the public who have come to the SECC complex daily to watch the Games. Famous for their good nature and fearlessness in battle, it has taken all of the Gurkhas' collective courage to abandon their famous eye melting Gurkha curries and try out their very own Scottish 'bush tucker trial'. The results might not be what you think! Produced by Sgt Gary Kendall, Royal Logistic Corps

Ok, so I guess we had to give it up. We, Australia, humbly allow England to surpass us on the medal table at the commonwealth games. After 28 years, we feel it our duty to stop being so good at everything and let the less fortunate amongst us have a go. NO, no, no...don't thank us! A xxx

Don’t know if this has already been mentioned but I’ve been looking over the Mail on Sunday/Survation poll. The referendum and commonwealth games results don’t seem that surprising but the results about the televised debates do. “The same survey also asked voters their opinion on this week’s head-to-head televised debate between First Minister Alex Salmond and leader of the pro-union Better Together campaign Alistair Darling. Mr Salmond was backed by 37% of voters to come out on top, with one in ten predicting Mr Darling would triumph.” Looking at the actual poll reveals that only 24% of No voters expect Darling to come out on top, for the undecided this is only 0.3%. This is really quite low (compare to nearly 70% Yes voters expecting Salmond to triumph). Is Darling really the underdog in this? There doesn’t seem to be that much expectation in him; that people already don’t think he’s likely to do well. People seem to predict that a good showing from Salmond is likely to swing the vote ...
