Hooters set to open in Cape Town

first_img11 January 2011Chanticleer Holdings is set to open its third Hooters restaurant in South Africa – and has plans for at least four more Hooters in the country over the next five years.“Hooters on Edward Street” will open for business at the Manhattan Plaza on Cape Town’s Edward Street in March, the company announced on Monday.Chanticleer’s other South African Hooters restaurants are “Hooters on the Rocks” in Durban and “Hooters on the Buzz” in Johannesburg. The popular US fast food chain is known for targeting male customers with a mostly female staff.The trio of restaurants is part of Chanticleer’s joint venture with SGShaw Food. The firms plan to open at least four additional Hooters restaurants in South Africa over the next five years, and believes there is a still greater opportunity in the region.“Hooters on Edward Street” occupies nearly 557 square metres in the Manhattan Plaza, which is filled with popular bars, nightclubs and restaurants that are expected to create substantial traffic for Hooters. The new space can accommodate 280 people and includes a large outdoor patio.Chanticleer Holdings chief executive officer Michael Pruitt said: “Opening our third Hooters restaurant in South Africa affirms our successful track record of extending the Hooters brand in Africa.“We see tremendous opportunity in this region and the optimism, energy and entrepreneurial spirit evident in Cape Town makes it a critical location for attracting locals and tourists to the renowned Hooters brand.“Our partnership with SGShaw Food has proven invaluable,” Pruitt added. “Their expertise in food services, paired with their proven ability to identify, secure and develop our Durban and Johannesburg locations, gives us high expectations for the new Cape Town location.”SGShaw Food chairman Spencer Shaw said: “There is a tremendous amount of excitement surrounding the opening of Hooters on Edward Street, and we are eager to exceed the expectations of Cape Towns’ multi-cultural local and tourist communities.“On the heels of winning the Restaurant Association of South Africa award for service excellence, we are committed to bringing they same high standard of service to all Hooters locations throughout South Africa.”Sapalast_img read more

Final whistle for winning Team SA?

first_imgCape Town was the host city for theHomeless World Cup in 2006. Gerald Bez shoots for goal during theHomeless World Cup match between SAand Australia, held at the Grand Paradein Cape Town, South Africa, in 2006.(Images: Flickr)MEDIA CONTACTS• Clifford MartinusSAHSS: Director+27 21 704 6815 / +27 82 945 4812Ray MaotaThe South African Homeless Street Soccer (SAHSS) initiative teaches young people life skills for handling issues such as HIV/Aids, crime and substance abuse.This they do by using soccer as a tool to keep them off the streets and opening them up to opportunities outside their normal environment.The initiative is part of Oasis: “Reach for your dreams”, which was started in 2000 by director Clifford Martinus and his friends as an informal soccer team for youngsters living in the streets of Cape Town, but grew bigger and was formally registered as a non-profit organisation (NPO) in 2002. Oasis Soccer Club still exists today and takes part in local tournaments.Established in 2006, the SAHSS became part of a worldwide network known as the Homeless World Cup Foundation, which includes 94 international partner organisations whose goal is to improve the lives of homeless people through soccer.The foundation is the brainchild of Mel Young, the co-founder of The Big Issue, a weekly magazine sold by homeless people in Scotland. He is also responsible for setting up the International Network of Street Papers (INSP), a global network of street papers sold worldwide.It was in Cape Town, at the end of the annual INSP conference in 2001, that Young and Austrian Harald Schmied, who is also involved in issues relating to homeless people, came up with the concept of the Homeless World Cup Foundation.“When we started out it was just to get the youth busy with soccer,” said Martinus.“Never did we realise that this was the beginning of a way of reaching more people and become a sense of opportunity for others less fortunate than ourselves.”He added that they are looking to expand their soccer programmes to more provinces and in future host a national street soccer tournament.Team SA is ranked 20th out of 56 nations involved in the international tournament. This year’s event takes place in Mexico in October and will host a record 72 countries, with 56 taking part in the men’s event and 16 in the women’s.The tournament started in Graz, Austria in 2003, and has been to four continents.National teams send different members every year, so as to give as many of their incumbents exposure to travelling and learning about new cultures as possible.“People tend to think this is just a joyous trip, but for these youngsters, meeting people with similar situations – whether it is drug abuse of being considered anti-social – is an eye-opener,” said Martinus.“They are boarding a plane for the first time to another country, and when they get there they realise that some of the people they meet are going through the same situation and there is a way out of it.”Not only for the homelessMartinus said although it’s named homeless street soccer, it does not include only the homeless and destitute.“Most of the participants live in places of safety and are from the streets, while others live in informal settlements,” he said.The team taking part in this year’s event will consist of eight players, four technical staff members and two social workers. It is in need of funds to help cover travelling costs.Mobile phone company Cell C, which was team sponsor for the 2010 and 2011 competitions, has had to restructure its sponsorship responsibilities this year.“Unfortunately our funding this year has gone to women and children initiatives and we could not carry on with the sponsorship,” confirmed Mag Pillay, Cell C public relations manager.The issue is uppermost on Martinus’s mind.“We need to get funds for flight tickets, the kit and a stipend for the players so they can feel comfortable among their counterparts at the tournament.”The cost of the trip is likely to exceed R200 000 (US$24 000) due to the airfares.Success stories of the initiativeAyanda Nqkayi (35) is a former captain of the team. Before joining the initiative he used to sell dagga as a means of survival, but through the SAHSS programme has become involved with the Cape Town Young Men’s Christian Association (YMCA).Nqkayi participates in YMCA projects such as the After School Programme, where youngsters are motivated to develop their education, confidence, leadership, and social skills in a safe environment.Martinus said they also recently had the Western Cape Street Soccer finals and called on previous players to facilitate with the proceedings so they can earn some money.Thulisile Bolana (24) from Khayelitsha is also a member of the SAHSS team. He will be going to Germany in June to a leadership camp organised by the UN Sport for Development and Peace. He is one of only three from Africa who were invited to represent the projects to which they belong and share ideas with others from around the world.He will be representing Oasis and speaking on how youth from around the world use soccer and sports in general to develop themselves.Lukhanyo Mdokwa, who was captain of the team in 2010, was taken in as assistant coach for South Africa at last year’s event. While there he was asked by the director of Paris-based Saint-Germain soccer club, who is Brazilian, to assist with the Brazil homeless team.“Lukhanyo will this year go again as assistant coach if we do get the funds to go to Mexico, but he will not come back to South Africa as he will join the Brazilian team and work at an NGO in Brazil,” said Martinus.last_img read more

Plenty to do at the ‘16 Review

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest The Farm Science Review is gearing up for another year of agricultural action during its annual three-day exposition being held Sept. 20 through 22.“Each year, farmers come here to see the latest and greatest in technologies and this year, we’re going to have more of the same,” said Matt Sullivan, superintendent of the Molly Caren Agricultural Center.FSR is known for its acres of side-by-side field demonstrations and Sullivan noted some exciting pieces of technology being unveiled with regard to corn harvest.“When the guys hop on the shuttle to go over to the field demonstrations, they’re going to see some really new harvest technology. They’re going to be able to see combines harvesting at an angle. You may say, ‘why in the world would they want to do that.’ You know if you’re looking at 30-inch rows, 20-inch rows, twin rows of corn, you may not have to buy a second head for that. You can just use one,” he said. “So we’re going to have two different combines this year being able to look at that type of technology.”Combine head manufacturers Geringhoff and Capello are bringing their innovative products for visitors to see in the corn harvest specifically suited for cross-row reaping. Sullivan said that the headers bring some unique capabilities to the farmer’s toolbox.“You know as a farmer myself, I get pretty jazzed up by having options in my toolbox. We have different types of wrenches, different types of GPS, and it gives us an opportunity to some different things,” he said. “Maybe we’ve got some point rows we need to go at a certain angle or something we need to do to make sure that we capture all those ears. That’s the way to look at it is it’s another option for harvest technology where it provides an opportunity to make a difference in what we’re doing.”The Farm Science Review wouldn’t be complete without a stop by the Gwynne Conservation Area, just down the road from the field demos. The widespread destruction from the Emerald Ash Borer has brought quite the need for proper tree felling education.“As you’re leaving field demos, you’re going to catch the same shuttle back and you’re going to go right by the Gwynne Conservation area. The Emerald Ash Borer has been pretty mean to us over the past few years and we’ve got a lot of dead trees in our woods and in our yards,” he said. “We’re having a chainsaw safety and maintenance demo — how to fell a tree properly. That’s going to be one of the biggest highlights at the Gwynne this year so that’s going to be going on all three days,” Sullivan said. “And also, there’s a lot of educational opportunities. What kind of trees do you have on your lot? What are you doing with your conservation areas, the areas that maybe you have in CRP? There’s going to be a lot of programming on that as well.”Back at the main exhibition area, visitors will be experiencing the result of increases in exhibitor numbers and permanent structures.“This year, we’re going to have the most vendors we’ve ever had at the Farm Science Review, and that’s one of the coolest things. We’re going to have over 20 new vendors and we’re going to be up to about 637 vendors this year. Thanks to Morton Buildings, they donated their building that’s been here for 18 years where we’re going to put 40 booths. Lots of small industry booths, 10-foot by 10-foot booths, 20-foot by 10-foot booths — we’re going to have those there. You don’t want to miss that at Kottman and Land Avenue,” he said. “And then we’re also having three new buildings on site — Morton of course, since they donated their old one to us. Asgrow Dekalb, so if there’s anybody out there using that type of seed, you’ll want to stop by and see their building. And we have a food vendor, this is going to be our third food vendor that has a building and that’s Teen Challenge, they have really good food, you’re going to want to make sure you stop and see them.”With changes across the board this year, Sullivan said the Review is cementing its place in the top end of the country’s farm shows.“We consider ourselves on of the top five farm shows in the nation. And when you look at our facilities and what we can offer — the 2,100 acres of the Molly Caren Ag Center — I would challenge anybody in the farm show industry, maybe North America, maybe even the world — and I’m being serious about this — as being the best. And we all have unique aspects to our shows but when you look at field demos and conservation areas and the quality and the maturity of our exhibit area, we’re second to none,” Sullivan said. “Take that few minutes, stop the combine if you’re going to be running, and just come see us for at least an afternoon,” Sullivan said. “You won’t regret it.”The Review runs from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 20 through Thursday, Sept. 22.Admission to the Review is $7 in advance, $10 at the gate, and free for children 5 and younger. Attendees can also browse among more than 600 exhibitors displaying more than 4,000 product lines.Free wagon shuttles from the west end of the Review’s main grounds take visitors to presentations at the nearby Gwynne Conservation Area and field demonstrations of harvesting and other equipment.Organizers expect total attendance to top 110,000. Hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sept. 20-21 and 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sept. 22. Details are at fsr.osu.edu.last_img read more

Islamic State claims Sri Lanka carnage toll is 321

first_imgColombo: The Islamic State on Tuesday claimed responsibility for the suicide bombings targeting churches and luxury hotels in Sri Lanka as the death toll in the Easter Sunday bloodbath touched 321, including 10 Indians, with over 500 injured. The Islamic State’s claim came as the country held a mass funeral for some of the victims at a sprawling grave near the St Sebastian’s Church in Negombo, around 40 km north of Colombo, where mourners struggled to hold back their tears. Also Read – India gets first tranche of Swiss bank a/c details An Arabic language statement on the group’s official al-Amaq news agency made the claim on the encrypted messaging app, saying the suicide bombers were “fighters of the Islamic State”. “The perpetrators of the attack that targeted nationals of the crusader alliance (anti-IS US-led coalition) and Christians in Sri Lanka were Islamic State fighters,” the brief message said. Tuesday’s statement came after an unconfirmed video posted to social media by an affiliated group suggested that the Islamic State was behind the Easter horror. That video showed photos of three of the alleged suicide bombers. Also Read – Tourists to be allowed in J&K from Thursday The men, who are described as “assailants” rather than the more common “martyrs”, were named as Abul Barra, Abul Mukhtar and Abu Ubaida and featured in front of a black IS flag giving the one-finger salute, the news.com of Australia said. Authorities have so far named a Sri Lankan Muslim group, the National Thowheed Jamath (NJT), for the bombings but said the mayhem would not have been possible minus international support. Earlier in the day, Defence Minister Ruwan Wijewardene said the Easter attacks were a “retaliation” for last month’s Christchurch mosque shooting that left 50 Muslims dead and were blamed on a white supermacist from Australia. The Minister put the latest death toll in Sri Lanka at 321. The Islamic State’s and the Defence Minister’s claim give an international dimension to the Sunday carnage that killed mostly Sri Lankans but also some 35 foreigners, including from the US and other Western countries as well as 10 Indians. The Indian High Commission said that with the death of two more Indians, the Indian death toll had risen to 10. Also on Tuesday, Sri Lanka observed a day of national mourning, with the national flags on public buildings flying at half mast. The mourning started at 8.45 a.m. to coincide with the start of the deadly attacks on Easter worshipers at churches and guests at hotels in three Sri Lankan cities. Three minutes of silence were observed across Sri Lanka to honour the dead. The police have detained 40 suspects in connection with the attacks. Reports said they include a Syrian who was caught after the interrogation of local suspects. The government has suggested that seven suicide bombers were involved in the bombings. A CCTV video showed one of them, a young man wearing a sky blue shirt and jeans and carrying a backpack, casually walking into an Easter congregation in a church where he blew himself up. The series of attacks on Sunday began with six nearly simultaneous explosions targeting three luxury hotels in Colombo and three churches – one in Colombo, another in Negombo and the third in the Tamil-majority Batticaloa town in the island’s east. Hours later, a seventh blast took place in a small hotel near the Colombo zoo killing two persons. The last of the bombings occurred when police raided a residential complex in Dematagoda, a neighbourhood in Colombo, but a terrorist detonated himself killing three policemen and also the wife and sister of one of the suicide bombers. Sunday was the deadliest day in the country since the end of a civil war between Tamil Tigers and government forces that began in 1983 and ended in 2009. Meanwhile, police in Colombo issued an alert that a van or truck carrying explosives may be in Colombo following which security was stepped up at government buildings and police stations.last_img read more

Ohio State womens basketball wins season opener

For the 17th consecutive year, the Ohio State women’s basketball team opened its season with a victory as the Buckeyes knocked off Tennessee State, 78-51, Sunday at the Schottenstein Center. Ten players scored for the Buckeyes, with senior guard Samantha Prahalis and junior guard Tayler Hill leading the way with 17 points each. Freshman forward Kalpana Beach, in her first-ever game for OSU, contributed 10 points and six rebounds. Beach said she found out just before the game that she was starting. “I knew it was going to be a lot different than high school,” Beach said. “So I just was going to go out and play as hard as I could and try not to make too many mistakes.” “(Beach) was nervous before the game,” Hill said with a smile following the victory. OSU surged out to a 48-21 halftime lead, holding TSU to 30 percent shooting in the first half and not allowing any second-chance or fast-break points. The Tigers kept pace with the Buckeyes during the second half with both teams notching 30 points. Coach Jim Foster attributed the drop in production in the second half to inconsistent offensive play. “I thought we started the game very aggressively,” Foster said. “I think it’s difficult to play 12 people and continue with continuity on offense. I think that’s probably what showed in the second half.” With Prahalis as the lone senior to go along with three juniors on the roster, OSU is the youngest team in the Big Ten, according to NCAA data. Foster said the early games in the season are vital in the development of the younger players. “I think one of the things that a young team needs to learn is that when you come in at halftime and sit down you’ve got to continue to be engaged when you go out there for the second half, regardless of what the score is,” Foster said. For the game, the Buckeyes shot 48 percent from the field to go along with a 23-for-29 clip from the free-throw line. OSU held a decisive advantage in free-throw attempts, with TSU only generating nine attempts from the line. OSU suffered a bit of a scare late in the second half when Prahalis, voted co-Big Ten Preseason Player of the Year by the conference’s coaches, was helped off the court by trainers when she fell and cramped up. Prahalis returned to action a few minutes later to finish the contest and assured reporters following the game that she was fine. The Buckeyes take to the Schottenstein Center court again to play Temple at 6 p.m. on Friday. OSU defeated the Owls, 84-75, on the road last season. read more

Football Ohio State defensive line setting the bar high

Ohio State defensive linemen look on during the second half of the Buckeyes game against Nebraska on Nov. 5. The Buckeyes won 62-3. Credit: Alexa Mavrogianis | Photo EditorThe Ohio State football team has a fully loaded defensive line ready to not only control the line of scrimmage, but also dominate it.“We’ll be as good as anybody in America at defensive end,” Coach Urban Meyer said.Meyer referenced Big Ten Defensive Lineman of the Year, redshirt senior Tyquan Lewis, redshirt junior Sam Hubbard, sophomore Nick Bosa, senior Jalyn Holmes and redshirt sophomore defensive tackle Dre’Mont Jones as the five premier defensive linemen on the team. With such high-profile players returning who have already played significant snaps, a concern is the possibility of complacency. However, that doesn’t seem to be the case for this unit. Lewis said the goal is to be the best defensive line all-time. “We’re all elite players, so we continue to push one another to the next level,” he said. “That’s what helps us become better and better — it’s a lot of competition between all of us.”Defensive line coach Larry Johnson said this unit is the best collective group he has had in a long time. He emphasized the closeness of this group by citing the collective bond and love that they share. He said Lewis and Holmes demonstrated this bond by forgoing the NFL Draft to return for their senior seasons. “The most important thing about these guys (is) they’re unselfish — they’re very unselfish players,” Johnson said. “They don’t care who starts, they don’t care who plays, as long as they play.”Honorable mention All-Big Ten defensive end Holmes said that the guys on the defensive line do not want to let each other down. He continually emphasized that winning is much more important than playing time. “We have that bond and we got that chemistry, Holmes said. “And we (are) playing for something bigger than ourselves.”Johnson referred to the depth of the defensive line and mentioned the improvements he has seen in redshirt sophomore defensive end Rashod Berry, sophomore defensive tackle Robert Landers, redshirt sophomore defensive tackle Jashon Cornell, redshirt freshman defensive tackle Malik Barrow, sophomore defensive end Jonathon Cooper and Honorable Mention All-Big Ten, redshirt senior Michael Hill. Honorable Mention All-Big Ten defensive end Hubbard played with former Buckeye defensive linemen Joey Bosa and Adolphus Washington, who both started as rookies in the NFL this past season. He said that this current defensive line could be even better as a whole.“I’ve played with a lot of great individuals. I don’t think, collectively, there’s been this much talent at his position since I’ve been here,” Hubbard said. “We have four guys who could start on any team in the country and we’re all playing together.”Along with Jones, Meyer said the staff has been thinking of ways of putting the five premier linemen on the field at one time, which would move a defensive end to linebacker. Per Johnson and multiple players, Hubbard has been practicing at the position during spring practice. Nick Bosa also emphasized the importance of getting all of the talent involved.“We have so many good players,” Bosa said. “It’s criminal to not have them on the field.” read more
