Banyana ready to tackle Tanzania

first_img29 August 2014South Africa’s women’s football team, Banyana Banyana will wind up Women’s Month with an international friendly against Tanzania at Peter Mokaba Stadium in Polokwane on Sunday evening.They returned from Zambia earlier this week after a 4-0 win over She-polopolo and went straight into camp ahead of the African Women’s Championship in Namibia, which takes place from 11 to 25 October.On trackCoach Vera Pauw said in a statement that her charges’ preparations are on track for the biggest women’s football tournament on the African continent, which will also serve as a qualifier for the 2015 Fifa Women’s World Cup, with the top three finishers qualifying to play in the finals in Canada.“We travelled back to South Africa on Monday and we gave the players a day off on Tuesday but the girls are looking great. We will be ready for Tanzania come Sunday,” Pauw said.Amanda Dlamini is recovering well from a knee injury which she suffered in match against Namibia at the Dobsonville stadium on 10 August.Places up for grabsWith Pauw yet to name her final squad to compete at the African Women’s Championship, competition among players for a place in Namibia is stiff.“Everyone is working hard in the team.

Qantas 747-400 gets a new life as a Rolls-Royce test bed

first_imgImage: Rolls-Royce The latest Qantas Boeing 747 to exit the airline’s dwindling fleet of much-loved jumbo jets is getting a new lease on life as a Rolls-Royce flying test bed.The Boeing 747-400, registration VH-OJU and named Lord Howe Island,  retired from commercial service October 13 with a Sydney-Los Angeles flight and will be used to test current and future jet engine technology.Rolls-Royce is investing $A70m (£56m) in the acquisition and refurbishment of the aircraft.READ: First pictures of Qantas’ 100th anniversary 787The  Qantas RB211-powered jumbo had been in service for two decades and was the last Rolls-Royce-powered aircraft in the fleet.During its service, it flew more than 70 million kilometres, or the equivalent of almost 100 return trips to the moon, operating to dozens of countries and carrying 2.5 million passengers.VH-OJUVH-OJU in its commercial service days.

Apple’s iWork Goes (Partly) Online

first_img8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Tags:#Apple#news#NYT#Product Reviews#web Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Apple today announced an online component to its iWork productivity suite. This, however, is not the rumored online version of iWork we were hoping for, as it only allows you to share documents online through iWork.com. After you share a document through the newly released iWork ’08 desktop software, your friends and co-workers can comment and leave notes on your Keynote, Pages, or Numbers documents, though the documents themselves can’t be edited online. Apple is releasing this as a free beta today, and Phil Schiller announced this as “the beginning of a great new service,” which leads us to believe that Apple is indeed working on a more advanced online version of iWork.According to Schiller, iWork.com will work on all the major browsers, including Safari, Firefox, and Internet Explorer. Documents are not only viewable online, but can also be downloaded.Apple also announced a Keynote Remote iPhone app, that will be available in the App Store for $0.99, as well as major updates to its iWork and iLife suites.
