Hi everyone, Just an update to where South Australia is, in receiving an new International Tennis Stadium and potential ATP/WTA Tennis Tournament. Sports Minister Leon Bignell, has stated that the SA Labor government is keen to invest around $60 million dollars to the upgrade but need's to see more detail in its review to invest this amount of taxpayer’s funds. Leon Bignell would like the stadium to be used potentially for the 2030 Commonwealth Games (will need to be built, or commence building before Labor government bids for the games by 2016) and the SA Labor government also needs to be satisfied that Tennis Australia will grant Adelaide a 7 day International tennis event, similar to those held in Melbourne (Kooyong Classic), Hobart, Sydney, Perth and Brisbane each year as a warm up leading to the Melbourne Australian Open International Grand Slam. Tennis SA had recently received SA Labor government funding of $80,000 to assist in the revised development of it's Memorial Drive master plan in which w ...

The Congress party has chosen 32- year-old Youth Congress leader Vishwajeet Kadam to fight the forthcoming Lok Sabha elections from Pune. Vishwajeet is the son of Patangrao Kadam, the State Forest and Rehabilitation Minister. In the process, it has denied a ticket to the sitting Pune MP, Suresh Kalmadi, who was suspended by the party after his arrest by the Central Bureau of Investigation in connection with the Commonwealth Games (CWG) scam in April 2011. Kalmadi has been the Pune Lok Sabha MP for the last two consecutive terms. Kadam told Sakal Times that he was happy that the party High Command had reposed faith in a youth leader like him. "I am grateful to Congress president Sonia Gandhi and vice president Rahul Gandhi for reposing faith in me. I will definitely fulfill the expectations of citizens of Pune and work hard for the city," Kadam said. The Congress city unit president Abhay Chhajed welcomed the decision of the party High Command. Kadam, who is State president of Maharashtra Pradesh Youth Con ...

Queen's Baton Relay (QBR) Alert: The Queen's Baton Relay is a much loved tradition of the Commonwealth Games and symbolises the coming together of all Commonwealth nations and territories in preparation for the four-yearly festival of sport and culture. The Glasgow 2014 Queen's Baton Relay is the curtain-raiser to the XX Commonwealth Games. Over a period of 288 days the baton will visit 70 nations and territories, cover 190,000 kilometres and involve a third of the world's population, making it the world's most engaging relay. On 9 October 2013 the Queen's Baton Relay was launched at Buckingham Palace, at a ceremony where Her Majesty The Queen placed Her message to the Commonwealth into the baton. The baton will be relayed by thousands of people throughout the Commonwealth, each one honoured by their own nation to participate in this unique tradition. Magical memories will be created on this journey across continents, terrains and time zones. From Sydney Harbour Bridge to the forests of Rwanda; from Pacif ...
CELTIC today announced that if the club is fortunate enough to be involved in UEFA Champions League Qualifying matches, then it is proposed that the first two qualifying rounds will be held at Murrayfield Stadium in Edinburgh With Celtic Park being used for the Opening Ceremony of this year's Commonwealth Games, Murrayfield is the logical choice to host the club's matches given the size of the stadium and its infrastructure. Celtic has already had advanced discussions with the management of Murrayfield Stadium and these will continue. The club feels it is important that supporters are given early notice of these arrangements and we will continue to liaise with our supporters groups and all other relevant authorities going forward. Celtic Chief Executive Peter Lawwell said: "Clearly we very much hope to be involved in the Champions League qualifying matches in July and early August and if this is the case then we felt it important that our fans know our proposed arrangements as early as possible.

Please read my article "My Experience at SRCC" and share your opinions. Last week I visited my old college, Shri Ram College of Commerce where I had spent three of the best years of my life as a undergraduate student. In the early seventies when I studied there, the college was considered the principal institution for business studies. It continues to maintain the same reputation even now. The occasion of my visit was recording of a programme called “ Political Roots”. The programme was produced and telecast by a news channel NDTV and anchored by Barkha Dutt. It was recorded in a sports gymnasium which was built by the college as a practice facility for the 2010 Commonwealth Games. An audience of a hundred students grilled me for over an hour. Needless to say, the quality of audience and students was excellent. SRCC is able to admit students who secure more than 96% aggregate marks. Obviously, the audience comprised of those who must have been toppers from various educational institutions. Most of the ...

Of course, it was at the R. K. Khanna Stadium that Somdev had won the Commonwealth Games singles gold. The title took him to No.78 in the world. Two semifinals and the title in the Challengers after the struggle against Ti Chen of Chinese Taipei in the Davis Cup at Indore, and the first round loss to R. Ramkumar at the Chennai Open. It was his third Challenger title.

AAP leader Yogendra Yadav said the country had not reached such a low point as to choose only between Narendra Modi and Rahul Gandhi "When we talk of corruption by Congress, people say we know it, don't bore us. Where was Rahul when Commonwealth Games, 2G, Adarsh, irrigation scams came to light?" Mr Yadav said. Also on the AAP leader's target was the BJP's prime ministerial candidate, "There are misconceptions about Narendra Modi. He makes big speeches and says I am a common man. But I want to ask: how did Adani grow in Gujarat? Who gave the corporate land at discounted rates? When Indian Air Force asked for land, Gujarat government asked for market value."

Look to the bright side, suppose we the ones who colonized the west? There would be hundreds of mpesa shops in london selling chinese phones, bars. No hospitals just witchcraft guys treating malaria. There would be stuff like "this witchcraft house was built with the help of the people of Karatina" in London' downtown, uhuruto would open the commonwealth games and after US discovers oil, we would have gone there to show them democracy. The main supersport channel, ss3 hd would show bullfighting and they would still love champions. After a revolt for independence, there would be "uhuruto massive was here 1900-1964 " and yes, the wazungus would have to shave hair in order to look smart.

Well the story goes two girls - attractive, athlete, and singles in a car heading over the mountains "Road trip". Is it Thelma and Louise? No not Thelma and Lisa but both girls have represented Australia, Commonwealth Games, Olympics and hold Australian records, both still in the vying for future rep honours, they train and live for sport. Both originally from the country hence their ability to cover the ground quickly, one from Mansfield, North-east Victoria, the other from just up the road in Canowindra. Both now live where it all happens fast and on the door step of opportunities. Our fun living girls also help in the training of others and promote running and triathlons. One is competing in the Bupa 10km (will she have pink or blonde hair on Sunday) and the other this year is her support crew and you may even get a medal from her at the finish line. Look for Victoria and Lisa around the course and say hi.

Regarding the Broadwater Marine Project - based on the limited information now available I will not be supportive of furthering the project. In my opinion it is no longer possible to take any "next steps" that would advance the "probable" Proponent, as announced by the State, towards one day becoming a "preferred" Proponent acceptable to the State. Why? Based on the outstanding issues that have been identified by the State (refer to Deputy Premier Jeff Seeney's letter to the City tabled in Hansard) I truly struggle to see how this massive project could be delivered at "no cost / no risk" in either a financial or environmental sense to our City. In particular the suggested location of a Cruise Ship Terminal in the very area where Councillors had expressed their strong reservations in it going. By way of background: On the 13th February 2014 the Deputy Premier announced in Queensland Parliament that a probable Proponent had been identified for the Broadwater Marine Project. This was the same day that exclus ...

Dear AAP Supporters, Pls go through this & comment on this post Mr Arvind Kejriwal has ran away because of his LOKPAL (read LOKSABHA) dreams What AAP did in his tenure (after taking support from Congress) - 1. Anarchism became part of Delhi. 2. There was no arrest in Commonwealth Games (though we have enough laws to fight against corruption). 3. BJP became no-1 enemy (it was Congress earlier). 4. PM post became much more important than Delhi's welfare. 5. Double standards for offenses done by other politicians & AAP Ministers/supporters. 6. There was no Allegation on Robert Wadra & Ambanis suddenly came in their Hit List (as they need alot of funds for Loksabha) 7. 50% waiver in bills, only for those who supported Kejriwal while his agitation against alleged inflated electricity and water bills. 8. Delhi's Law Minister Som Nath Bharti himself broke laws but no action was taken against him. 9. Innocent voters felt befooled when Water & electricity tariffs were reduced only as an eye wash. 10.

66 Years of Independence Congress caused our nation to be brought to its knees. Scams of crores & crores are okay. They will still be looking into it till scams of crores are something that people should come to accept and people implicated should resign to get a more lucrative position and do further good to Congress coffers citing working for the party. Chidambaram says India is doing well.A learned man who has sold the nation as he is also following the Congress policy of "Garib ko Hatao". BJP is so busy trying to establish itself and portraying a solid person. Sharad Pawar, Laloo Prasad, Mulayam Singh, Jayalalitha are like the Madari's bandars. Tie up with Congress and dance to their tunes and only earn crores. AAP tried to stem a cross flow of blatant, outight robbery in 49 days. * Free supply of 667 litres of water daily for households with metered connections. * Fifty percent subsidy in electricity bills for households which consume up to 400 units of power a month. * No red or blue beacons on o .. ...

Alex Salmond in response to David Cameron's speech last week at the Olympic Stadium in London, urging Scots to stay in the Union: "Members of Better Together have been attacking or suggesting that there should be no attempt to politicise the Commonwealth Games, (...) but now David Cameron goes to the Olympic stadium to politicise the Olympic Games of two years ago.." The eyes of the world will be on Scotland during the Glasgow Commonwealth Games. Do you think this will help the YES campaign and the case for Scottish independence?

Now really bored of hearing other people's and groups cryptic business advice. Never felt so uninspired in ma puff. I won't be setting up a business in Glasgow just to make up numbers for the Commonwealth Games. I'm better than that. Nor will I hang around to see what happens elsewhere that may have a wee space in the corner that could be of interest. As the paint starts to crack on the shopfronts that were painted last year in prep. of the games, small new start business' set up to inspire and portray a vision of an entreprenurial city are in danger of a similar fate.

Darling urged to apologise for untrue allegations Mon, 17/02/2014 - 10:37 The leader of the No campaign Alistair Darling is facing calls to apologise today after his attack on the tourism agency VisitScotland. Mr Darling's allegation that VisitScotand has been "suborned" to support the Yes campaign in the referendum has been comprehensively disproven by the agency. Mr Darling’s criticism centred on an advert produced by the agency starring Olympic gold medalist Sir Chris Hoy promoting a series of events taking place in Scotland in 2014, including the Commonwealth Games and the Ryder Cup. Commenting, Deputy Convener of the Scottish Parliament’s Economy, Energy and Tourism Committee, Dennis Robertson MSP, said: “The No campaign is characterised by spreading misinformation about Scotland and distorting reality. It has reached a new low when its chairman, Alistair Darling, makes scurrilous and utterly untrue allegations about the country’s tourism agency. “Tourism is one of Scotland’s biggest ind ...

Anger at Darling's attack on tourism agency Robbie Dinwoodie Monday 17 February 2014 THE SNP have demanded an ­apology from the head of the Better Together campaign after he suggested ­tourism agency VisitScotland bowed to pressure from Alex Salmond to produce pro-independence TV advertising. Alistair Darling described a TV advert based on events this year such as the Year of Homecoming, the Commonwealth Games and the Ryder Cup as showing the tourism agency had been "suborned" by the Scottish Government. The advert, produced for both domestic and international airing to highlight this year's series of events, concludes with Sir Chris Hoy saying: "So you too can say, 'yes, I was there'." Sir Chris and his Olympic achievements featured in the recent "lovebomb" speech by David Cameron. The leader of Better Together accused the SNP of being "ruthless" about exploiting the bureaucracy of the Scottish Government to advance the Yes cause. He cited the advert, saying: "This is TV advertising for their campaign ...

The group will reassemble for another camp from 7-9 March, at which the country's final Commonwealth Games squad will be selected.

In other matches played this week, England captain Pamela Cookey netted a last minute goal to bring her side TeamBath level in a 48 all draw with Surrey Storm.

This is a dumb question and doesn't deserve a response because I don't really care, but why is there no cricket in the Commonwealth games? There is rugby but no soccer. Why did the Commonwealth not see fit to include the boring sports it follows? I don't really care, just curious and hopeful that they don't add them!

Had a good laugh on the bus from Surfers paradise to Movieworld today when the driver was basically giving you a guided tour talking about all the money being spent on the 2018 Commonwealth games on the Gold Coast and about halfway to Movieworld he quoted that we were about 1700 kilometres south of Cairns and about 850 kilometres North of Sydney and also that not anybody really wanted to know but we are about 1600 kilometres North of Melbourne if by the odd chance anybody was interested then he asked if anybody planned on visiting Brisbane during their stay on the Coast and 2 young girls said they were and he said I wouldn't really bother not much to see it's a smaller version of Melbourne also with a filthy river running down the middle of it lmfao.

LK Advani's Blog UNDER DR. MANMOHAN – SONIA DUO, PARLIAMENT HITS AN ALL TIME LOW Posted: 15 Feb 2014 06:41 PM PST The U.P.A. Government has been in office now for ten years, from 2004 to 2014. UPA I lasted from 2004 to 2009; and UPA II from 2009 to 2014. Dr. Manmohan Singh began his tenure with a clean personal reputation. But as his decade long tenure is coming to a close, he would leave behind him a record of having presided over the most corrupt government in Independent India. Starting with the scandals that surfaced during the Commonwealth Games in Delhi, then proceeding to the 2 G Spectrum scams, most of the scams that came to light under Congress governments were exposures made by the C.A.G. or the judiciary and related to bribes allegedly received by ministers/officials in government for illegal favours extended to the bribe givers. But I hold that the most disgraceful scam that came to light during UPA I was the Cash-for-Votes Scam. It was an episode following the Left Front’s withdrawal of s ...
Tunda chargesheet points to Pakistan complicity in 90s' serial blasts, reveals names of top LeT commanders Neeraj Chauhan,TNN | Feb 17, 2014, 02.55 AM IST Abdul Karim Tunda New Delhi: Indicting Lashkar-e-Taiba's one-armed bomber Abdul Karim Tunda for the terror strikes in Indian cities between 1994 and 1998, the Delhi Police has blamed Pakistan's ISI for masterminding the attacks. The chargesheet, filed on February 11 and a copy of which has been accessed by TOI, gives a detailed list of LeT's hierarchy apart from details of ISI officers and Dawood Ibrahim with whom Tunda had close relations. The chargesheet also gives details of other terror outfits like Jaish-e-Mohammad, Indian Mujahideen and Babbar Khalsa International. It says that in 2010, Colonel Imtiaz of ISI and Iqbal Kana had assigned Tunda the task of sending RDX to India via Bangladesh, to be used by BKI terrorists to target the Commonwealth Games in the national capital. The chargesheet gives details some senior ISI functionaries, whose phone ...
Cycling Australia is pleased to announce the Australian Para-cycling Track Team for the UCI Para-cycling World Track Championships to be held in Aguascalientes, Mexico, 10 – 13 April 2014.

Kim Mickle claimed a narrow victory World championships silver medalist Kim Mickle has maintained bragging rights over Kathryn Mitchell with a narrow two centimetre victory in Adelaide. Mickel threw 66.12m to edge out Mitchell’s new personal best of 66.10m. Competing in blustery conditions, Mitchell opened the competition with her 66.10m throw, a performance just short of the Australian record of 66.80m held by Louise Currey. Mitchell held the lead until the third round, when Mickle responded with her winning throw. Her earlier attempts had been caught by the wind, but the third round throw sliced through the headwind that saw the direction of running for the sprints reversed during the meet. Both Mickle and Mitchell’s throws were A-qualifiers, and in combination with Kelsey-Lee Roberts, who took third on an off day with a best of 55.02m, there is the potential for a clean sweep of the medals at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow. “I literally would have been happy with an opener in the 60’s and wh ...
Australian representative Lote Tuqiri believes steps to include rugby league nines in the Commonwealth Games from as early as 2018 will help to keep the game's brightest stars from switching codes. Tuqiri played sevens rugby for Australia at the 2006 Commonwealth Games in Melbourne and was excited to hear of the developments that will see a Nines tournament involving nine international teams – including Australia and New Zealand – played as an exhibition event on June 27-28 prior to the 2014 Games at Glasgow. The announcement of an under-19s event was made on the morning of the kick-off to the *** Smith NRL Auckland Nines with a view to possibly becoming a medal event at the 2018 Commonwealth Games at the Gold Coast. Tuqiri's Australian team failed to win a medal at the 2006 Games but he believes such an opportunity will help in making the international exposure offered by rugby union less enticing to rugby league's brightest stars. "I didn't know that but I think that would be awesome," Tuqiri said . ...

Happy birthday Somdev Kishore Devvarman (13 February 1985) is a professional Indian tennis player. He hit the headlines for being the only collegiate player to have made three consecutive finals at the NCAA, winning back-to-back finals in his junior and senior years. Only three other players have matched that record since 1950. His 44–1 win-loss record in 2008 at NCAA Men's Tennis Championship is unprecedented. His best achievement so far on the ATP World Tour has been reaching the finals of the Chennai Open in 2009, as a wild card entry. In 2010, Somdev won the Gold medal in the Men's Singles event of XIXth Commonwealth Games at the R.K. Khanna Tennis Stadium in New Delhi and followed it up with both Men's Singles and Doubles Gold in the 2010 Asian Games in Guangzhou, China. He is coached by Scott McCain. In 2011, Devvarman received the Arjuna Award from the Indian government for his national tennis successes. Somdev was born in a Tripuri Hindu family in Guwahati, Assam to Ranjana and Pravanjan Dev Var ...

Legitimate question regarding the Olympics...Britain's Overseas Territories (i.e. Bermuda, the Cayman Islands, etc) compete as their own teams, but England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland are a national team. Great Britain does not compete as a nation for the Commonwealth Games, FIFA,ICC, or IRB competitions. Anyone know why?
you can stick the Olympics, Winter Olympics, Paralympics, World Cup etc, only the Commonwealth Games as Bowls
And that is why it competes in events such as the European Cup and the Commonwealth Games as a country? Because Canada 1/2
There are a number of popular sports in India but cricket is the most popular. The country also has won eight Olympic gold medals in field hockey. India has hosted and co-hosted several international sporting events, including the 1951 and 1982 Asian Games, the 1987, 1996 and 2011 Cricket World Cup, the 2003 Afro-Asian Games, the 2010 Hockey World Cup and the 2010 Commonwealth Games.

Following the announcement yesterday that Liverpool City Council are making cuts to services over the next 3 years including the closure of Park Rd Sports Centre, we would like to take this opportunity to clarify the situation. In the first instance we would like to stress that it is only the pools that will be closing imminently. Liverpool Gymnastics club will continue operating as normal at Park Road for the foreseeable future and the club are working on increasing the number of gymnasts attending and the range of classes we offer, ensuring local children can continue to take part in gymnastics at every level at Park Road. The Gymnasts currently training at the club for this year’s European and World Championships and Commonwealth Games will continue to do so with no disruption to their programmes. We believe that provided we are given enough time and uninterrupted use of the facility, that the club can stand on its own two feet at the centre with no council subsidy.

Champions League: Celtic stadium request to be denied by Uefa By Richard Conway BBC Radio 5 live sports news correspondent Any request by Celtic to play one of their home Champions League fixtures in either England or Ireland next season will be denied by European governing body Uefa. If Celtic win the Scottish league title this season they will be required to play a two-legged Champions League qualifying match next summer. But with Celtic Park, along with Ibrox and Hampden, all in use as Commonwealth Games venues, a new location for the game would need to be found. Celtic's chief executive Peter Lawwell had asked Uefa to look at options for the tie, including stadiums outside Scotland. Regulation 12.07: Venues Celtic Park crowd In principle, a club must play all its matches in the competition at one and the same ground. Matches may be played either at the ground of the home club or at another ground in the same or another city within the territory of its association, or, if so decided by the Uefa adminis ...

I am Innocent The 3rd Commonwealth Games were held at New Delhi in October 2010. This world class sports event did not come to our country of its own, but it took 7 long years of efforts for me to visit 71 Commonwealth member countries and promote it after which I succeeded in getting New Delhi chosen for this event in 2010. The entire nation stood behind me at that time. The then Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee strongly supported me on behalf of all the countrymen. I managed to bring this event to New Delhi and we had seven long years at our disposal for the preparations. I was elected as the Chairman of the Organizing Committee of the Commonwealth Games. Then the works like constructing various sports complexes, building games village for the players, beautification of Delhi, the ambitious Metro project and renovation of the Delhi airport etc. started during those seven years. There was delay at some places in getting the work take off, but none of these things was my prerogative. I was connected in ...

Vindo Binny teams up with 2 MLAs, threatens to pull plug on Kejriwal govt! New Delhi: Aam Aadmi Party's expelled MLA Vinod Kumar Binny on Sunday produced the most potent threat yet to the month-old Kejriwal government, when he teamed up with two legislators and said they would withdraw support if the regime did not fulfill its promises in the next 48 hours on slashing power and water bills, women's security and a fair probe into the 2010 Commonwealth Games scams. The rebel Laxmi Nagar MLA shared the podium with veteran Janata Dal (United) MLA Shoaib Iqbal and Independent Rambeer Shokeen, both of whom had voted for the government in the assembly. AAP has 27 MLAs after Binny's expulsion and runs the government with outside support from eight Congress legislators. If the trio were to vote against the government, it faces the prospect of slipping below the majority mark of 36 in the 70-member House. Binny also claimed to have the support of other two MLAs. Iqbal, who in past had expressed a desire to join AAP ...
Is UPA II, the worst ever government India had ? Well, as the 2014 elections is a few miles away, Its a highly significant question worth a thought. Today I rate this government as the worst ever government India had since independence with innumerable problems at hand. Its often not the problems but the inability to handle them and making it even more worse is the distinction of this government. Let me light upon some crucial factors for which I account this Government as the worst ever. First of all, the famous triple price hike of petrol, diesel and LPG gas cylinders made the common living impossible, Inflation at its highest ever, Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) issue is one of the most irritating of all for the public to digest, The 15th Loksabha has the highest number of bills pending in parliament, On which dozens of crucial bills won't see the light of day. Inefficiency in controlling the high rate of exploitation on women, A series of scams, which includes 2G, Coalgate, Commonwealth Games and Ada ...

EMMANUEL IFEAJUNA- A FORGOTTEN IGBO HERO: Emmanuel Ifeajuna burst into national/international limelight when in 1954 at the British Empire and Commonwealth Games in Vancouver, Canada he won the gold medal in high jump, scaling a height of 2.20 metres and watched by a crowd of 25,332. He gave Nigeria her first Gold medal in any sporting event then. Perhaps, because he participated in the 1966 coup, this achievement has been erased from the Nigerian archives. Because he was Igbo. But our Northern brothers who took part in subsequent coups and counter coups have continued to enjoy national recognition. The International Airport Lagos is named after late General Murtala Mohammed who was a military Head of state. Gen Gowon, Gen Babangida and Gen Danjuma have continued to amass national honours and recognition. Our Igbo leaders have cowardly kept mute at this injustice from our APC brothers. Major Ifeajuna deserves recognition. He died fighting for Biafra.

Zamindari privileges ordered by Civil Aviation ministry for criminal mirasdars in Parliament V Sundaram IAS January 29, 2014 The Zamindari System was abolished by the Estate’s Abolition Act after Independence. We have now created a new brand of Political Zamindars in the place of Erstwhile Feudal Zamindars. In the earlier system, only the Landless workers dependent on Agriculture were in the Bonded Labour of the Zamindars. In the New Political System created by Our New Constitution after our Independence, we have created a Class of New Zamindars. In this system, all the people of India have been brought under the Cruel Yoke of Bonded Labour of these New Zamindars! Yesterday, I was watching English News TV Channels. I am quite amused to see that the DGCA has issued Guidelines to all Airports and Private Airlines to extend Special Privileges to Members of Parliament. DGCA has reportedly asked Private Airlines to offer special privileges to MPs including Advance Notice of Flight Delays, Escorts, Priority C ...
Reasons for Depleting Value of Rupee 1.A basic law of economics states that “the value of a product increases with the increase in demand for the product”. This means that the downfall in value of rupee is due to its lesser demand which is true. India being a developing country makes use of resources from foreign market to fulfill the demands of its citizens. 2.The stock market of India has a large amount of investment from overseas. The number of investments increases with the increase in performance of the markets of India compared to those of other countries. These investors require rupee to invest here which leads to an increase in demand for rupee along with its value. 3.Recession has been one of the primary reasons for such an economical imbalance in India. The effects of recession have been more severe to United States and other foreign countries compared to India. Due to this, the number of foreign investors has reduced considerably in the past one year as they have to use money wisely. 4.Anot ...

I reckon all five of the Police Control Rooms, and all of the Fire Control Rooms that are earmarked for closure should have a coordinated "IT and/or Power Failure" during the opening ceremony of the Commonwealth Games, so that we can all see just how dangerous this game of "political cat & mouse cutbacks" really is.well, they'll need to get used to it sometime! - Chaos, mismanagement, delayed response times, death and injury. Yes, I think that would just be for starters.

Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games Netball Q and A 02/14 Why has the Netball venue changed to the SSE Hydro? Glasgow 2014 strives to maximise the use of our venues so that the athlete experience is optimised by packed stadia throughout our Sport Programme. Why has this taken so long to be announced? We required a date that the SSE Hydro was available for a full transition test as well as completing some detailed transition planning as part of our preparations. Was the decision taken because Netball tickets sold so well at the SECC? We are delighted with the overall public response to tickets for Glasgow 2014 and always strive to maximise the number available when there is demand. How many extra Netball tickets will there be now? Now testing has been completed and the host venue for Netball confirmed, the next stage is to definite additional tickets that will be available for sale. If pressed: There could be up to an additional 4,000 capacity when compared to the SECC Halls. When will these tickets be release ...

Sascoc lift Athletics SA’s suspension 29 January By SAPA Johannesburg – The South African Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee (Sascoc) has withdrawn Athletics South Africa’s suspension to allow athletes to compete at the Commonwealth Games in July and August. But matters are far from rosy as Sascoc and Athletics SA continue to bicker over who the rightful leaders of the athletics body are. Last year, Athletics SA’s leadership – headed up by President James Evans – was ousted and replaced by an interim board, but the IAAF allegedly refuses to recognise the new board. Chairman of the interim board, Sello Mokoena, has found himself isolated. In the wake of the power struggles at ASA, Sascoc suspended the body’s membership from the Olympic body, but the move had a negative effect on the athletes and very little effect, it would seem, on the administrators. Sascoc have asked the IAAF to intervene, but getting someone from the world body to travel to South Africa has proven to be a challeng ...

Corruption is a global phenomenon; it is omnipresent. In India corruption is a major problem and one of the key deterrents of development. Corruption in India has been present in India right from the Independence days. Typically, corruption on India is closely associated with the money laundering and bribery, which means utilizing the money for some illegal activities. Corruption has become an integral part of the Indian society; it has become so common that it has almost become impossible to identify the corrupt activities. In the recent few years, the corruption in India has gained mammoth proportions and the recent scam stories aptly underpin the fact. According to the Corruption Perception Index Report of 2009 released by Transparency International, India ranked 84th among the 180 corruption affected countries. Corruption has several negative effects, it is therefore vital to have a corruption free environment. The reason why India should become corruption free is discussed below: A large number of In ...
