Captain Denis Onyango is again joined by Ethiopian based-Salim Jamal, KCCA’s Charles Lukwago and Onduparaka custodian Nicholas Ssebwato.In defence, Kirinya’s Isaac Isinde who was dropped as the squad to face Tanzania was being trimmed, has been called up once again along with Kasasiro Boys’ Bernard Muwanga and Proline’s Mustafah Mujuzi.The midfield has not seen a major shake-up apart from SC Villa captain-Ambrose Kirya and KCCA’s Allan Kyambadde joining the cast.However, there is still no room for Raja Casablanca’s Muhammad Shaban in Desabre’s striking set-up despite the 20-year-old being on the lips of several Ugandans but Nelson Ssenkatuka has been given a chance to impress.Ssenkatuka has lately been left frustrated after he has consistently failed to make the squad despite an impressive season, last.Uganda will go into the Lesotho game hoping to solidify top spot in Group L. They currently lead the standings on four points from two games.The Cranes defeated Cape Verde 1-0 in their first game before drawing 0-0 at home to Tanzania last month.Local based players will start training on 5th October before the rest of the squad joins three days later for the residential camp ahead of the back to back ties against Lesotho to be played in a space of four days.The final squad of 24 players for the residential camp will be named by the head coach on 7th October, 2018.The 33 Players that have been summoned:Goalkeepers: Denis Onyango (Mamelodi Sundowns), Jamal Salim (El Meriekh), Charles Lukwago (KCCA FC) and Nicholas Sebwato (Onduparaka FC).Defenders: Isaac Isinde (Kirinya Jinja SS), Murushid Juuko (Simba SC), Timothy Awanyi (KCCA FC), Denis Iguma (Kazma FC), Nicholas Wadada (Azam FC), Bashir Asiku (Vipers SC), Musitafah Kizza (KCCA FC), Musitafa Mujuzi (Proline FC), Bernard Muwanga (KCCA FC), Godfrey Walusimbi (Kaizer Chiefs) FC, Isaac Muleme (Haras El Hodood).Midfielders: Joseph Ochaya (Lusaka Dynamo), Hassan Wasswa (El Geish), Khalid Aucho (Church Hill Brothers, India), Ibrahim Saddam Juma (KCCA FC), Tadeo Lwanga (Vipers SC), Allan Kateregga (Cape Town City), Faruku Miya (Gorica ), Ambrose Kirya (Sc Villa), Allan Okello (KCA FC), Julius Poloto (KCCA FC), Moses Waisswa (Vipers Sc), Milton Karisa( MC Oujda), Allan Kyambadde (KCCA FC).Strikers: Emma Okwi (Simba SC), Edrisa Lubega (SV Ried), Derrick Nsibambi (Smouha), Patrick Kaddu (KCCA FC), Nelson Senkatuka (Bright Stars FC).Comments

28 September 2015Government wants to engage more actively with South African youth, using the pillars of the National Development Plan (NDP) to highlight and solve challenges in unemployment, education and social cohesion.Minister Malusi Gigaba during the Governance and Administration Cluster Media Briefing #GABriefing pic.twitter.com/oo77kpqfda— GCIS Media Liaison (@GCISMedia) September 27, 2015Home Affairs minister Malusi Gigaba stated government has partnered with youth organisations and business to make sure youth development is prioritised.At a media briefing of the Governance and Administration Cluster on Sunday 27 September 2015, the Minister said the partnerships were formed to alleviate the challenge of youth unemployment.Presidential Youth Working Group“President Jacob Zuma launched the Presidential Youth Working Group in June 2015, to promote youth participation in governance and policymaking and to mainstream youth development and empowerment in the work of government, to build a better life for young people,” Minister Gigaba said at the briefing.“In the work of the Presidential Youth Working Group, the Department of Performance, Monitoring and Evaluation, the following work streams have been established: Economic Participation and Transformation Education; Skills and Second Chances; Health Care and Combating Substance Abuse; Nation-Building and Social Cohesion, and Effective and Responsive Youth Development Institutions.”The Minister’s statement comes after Minister in the Presidency, Jeff Radebe, accompanied by Deputy Minister Buti Manamela, signed the National Youth Policy in Khayelitsha, in the Western Cape in August this year. This policy framework, which was signed after a lengthy consultative process, also identified partnerships with all sectors of society as a way of advancing youth development.Minister Gigaba said that the strategies of the Presidential Youth Working Group’s work streams would form part of the Integrated Youth Development Strategy and progress will also be included in the MTSF for proper monitoring and evaluation.“The process to amend the National Youth Development Agency Act, 2008 (Act 54 of 2008), is ongoing, with a draft Bill currently with the State Law Advisors,” the minister said.Interventions to fast-track NDP implementationMinister Gigaba said interventions had been implemented to assist in fast- tracking several NDP imperatives, including growing the economy with an appropriate and healthy Growth Domestic Product (GDP) rate, as well as creating jobs and eradicating poverty and inequality.He said these were implemented using government’s Medium Term Strategic Framework 2014-19, which Cabinet adopted last year.“The current initiatives to stimulate growth include government’s Infrastructure Build Programme, the War Room on electricity, Operation Phakisa on the Ocean Economy and in Mining, and the Nine-Point Plan to boost economic growth and create jobs,” the minister said. He also stated that there were other reports showing success linked to the implementation of the framework.A recent report on education and skills development showed that tremendous progress was made in the education sectors which continue to be a priority area of focus.While with rural development and land reform, progress on land acquisition for smallholders has been slow, but government’s implementation of programmes are being reviewed and strengthened to resolve some of these issues.Health care, crime and social cohesionMinister Gigaba said in regards to health care, South Africa has received worldwide recognition for its HIV and Aids programme, which has over three million people initiated on treatment, contributing to the attainment of the Millennium Development Goals.“Good progress is being made under safety and security, regarding the reduction of overall levels of serious crime,” he said, “the department is implementing Operation Fiela (Reclaim), to rid our country of illegal weapons, drug dens, prostitution rings and other illegal activities.”“This multidisciplinary, interdepartmental operation is contributing to the safety and security of our communities,” the minister concluded.Source: SAnews.gov.za
At the moment i cannot tie my hair. At the moment i cannot tie my hair back due to shoulder op and so i bought these clips. They are ideal, they hold my hair up, even though my hair is thin, my hair is kept away from my face and it stays neat and tidy. Nice size, appear good quality for the price, very happy with purchase. I misplaced the clips that came with my straigtner so looked around for replacements. These are good value and were the best i could find. I have thick, medium length hair, so need strong clips. These did the job adequately but when i found my original ones, i was very happy. But these are still are the best that i could find to buy. Good quality- would buy these again. They arrived on time and are just the right size- also none of them have been in any way faulty and they seem to be quite durable. A bonus as they are cheaper than many others i looked at. Good quality- would buy these againThese are brilliant. At the moment I cannot tie my hair These are just brilliantUsed as a hair clipHair sectioning clipsBrilliant. I have had clips like these before & Head Jog Klip itz Hair Sectioning Clip x 6 BLACKTriple tension sprung ensures durability.Durable Hair Sectioning ClipStrong Grip LockIdeal For creating clean sectioning patterns during styling. Very useful for long kinky hair. I would probably recommend a different type of clip for black hair, the teeth are quite gentle on my hair but the slide has an okay grip, not terrible but not the best. The headjog text on the clip is smudging already, probably in reaction to the oils i use. I bought these for my wife along with another make. Both work well as hair clips. These are a bit longer then the others. I had to sand off the logo for use as a hair clip but i can’t complain when using them for a purpose they were not intended for. The spring is strong and holds the hair easily. 6 good sized hair clips, strong jaws keep a good grip on the hair when sectioning and are very good value for money would be happy to recommended. Do what they are supposed too. What a disappointment, these do not work for long hair -. What a disappointment, these do not work for long hair – they do slide down all the time. There is no grip, so i will be moving to tony & guy again. These sectioning clips are good quality. However, they are quite large and so can be a little more difficult to use – depending of course on the length and type of hair. I have had clips like these before &. I have had clips like these before & use them all the time, but these are the best ones; they are just the right length & shape and grip the hair straightaway. I use them frequently and remember that they arrived so quickly after ordering. When i went looking for some sectioning clips, i wasn’t expecting the mind bogglingly large selection i found on amazoni read the reviews and went for a mid priced clip and am thrilled with these. I have fairly heavy long hair and these keep it up with no problem when i’m blow drying it. They never snag and are of a nice solid construction, so they feel like they will last for a decent length of time. Use them every time i straighter/ blow dry my hair. They are fabulous and would recommend them to everyone. Good quality clips do what they are meant to do and are strong enough to hold thick heavy hair.
“The mobile app industry is growing fast, but it is still in the early stages of development, with practitioners who are not all alert to privacy implications and how to address them. To help educate the industry and promote privacy best practices, the Attorney General’s Privacy Enforcement and Protection Unit has prepared Privacy on the Go: Recommendations for the Mobile Ecosystem. The recommendations, which in many places offer greater protection than afforded by existing law, are intended to encourage app developers and other players in the mobile sphere to consider privacy at the outset of the design process.” California Attorney General Kamala Harris, writing in Privacy On The Go: Recommendations for the Mobile Ecosystem.On Thursday, California Attorney General Kamala Harris released a 22-page report on mobile privacy intended to strengthen user protection and regulation. The document specifically calls for readable privacy policies, transparency when it comes to alerting users if third party vendors collect their personal information, and an end to unnecessary data collection unless it is critical for the app to function. “We are now offering this set of privacy practice recommendations to assist app developers, and others, in considering privacy early in the development process,” Harris wrote in the report, which was completed after dialogue with mobile developers, carriers, manufacturers, advertisers and privacy experts. The report was prompted both by a recent directive from President Obama to define an online strategy to fight terrorism, and by Harris’ own interest in how mobile apps collect user data.In December 2012, Harris sued Delta Air Lines for violating California’s online privacy law and not informing people how their personal data is collected. Before that she was instrumental in getting Apple and Facebook to require that apps display privacy policies. Report CardHarris’ report recommends developers make clear to users the details of just what information they are collecting, how long they store it, and what third parties the data is shared with. It also asks ad networks to do away with tracking devices in favor of “using app-specific and/or temporary device identifiers,” and create plain-language privacy policies that spell out all of the above in layman’s terms. While having app makers follow these guidelines would clearly benefit consumers, the extra red tape probably won’t sit well with most developers.“In general that report is inline with common sense and I agree that apps should be more transparent. However, with the average price of apps being so low, developers and companies are forced to explore other monetization strategies which almost always involve selling user information to advertisers,” said Jad Meouchy, a developer and founder of Osurv, a custom mobile survey app. “While I agree with all the directives, I don’t see any way to enforce them.”Enforcement Is The IssueThat’s the key issue right now. Since Harris’ report goes above and beyond existing law, these recommendations are just that – recommendations – and are not enforceable by law. Still, they’re a step in the right direction, towards transparency and broader awareness of information. Over time, it’s likely that more states will draft their own recommendations – and even bills that could become mandates. The Future of Privacy Forum‘s director and co-chair, Jules Polonetsky, says California’s recommendations could be a guideline for app makers. “As a best practices guide, the document is very reasonable, and many app developers already comply with the key points the reports make,” he said. Polonetsky also liked the fact that the recommendations’ tone and direction mirror the President’s National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA), which calls for a push towards improved telecommunications and information policy. “The guide also supports the direction that the NTIA multi-stakeholder process has taken and will be a useful input into the national effort to come up with an enforceable code of conduct for developers,” he said. Where These Recommendations Go, The Law Is Likely To FollowWith more than half of the U.S. accessing the Internet via mobile devices, more than a million mobile apps available and roughly 1,600 new ones added every day, it’s only a matter of time until recommendations like these become regulations. That doesn’t have to be a bad thing — especially if there is full communication between legislators, developers and consumers. “Our hope is that privacy-respectful practices such as those we are recommending here will be adopted by app developers and others, enabling consumers to make informed choices from the vast array of mobile apps while maintaining the level of privacy control they desire,” the report states. “Our recommendations, which in many places offer greater protection than afforded by existing law, are intended to encourage all players in the mobile marketplace to consider privacy implications at the outset of the design process. They are also intended to encourage the alignment of architectural and functional decisions with the widely accepted Fair Information Practice Principles.”This may very well be the year that the U.S. government steps up to the plate and hammers out laws that actually make sense for all parties concerned. Harris’ plan is a good step towards that goal.Photo courtesy of Shutterstock.

The match between India and the Netherlands was a game of two halves. After giving the Dutch a lot of space to move around in the first period, the Indians got their act together and with a bit of luck, could have earned a share of the spoils.In the first half, India put pressure on themselves by wrong passing and lack of co-ordination. The Netherlands got hold of the game and scored twice, though both goals could have been prevented.Robert van der Horst was given acres of space in the danger area and even when he entered the striking circle, Sardar Singh was too slow to close him down.Even the second goal, which came off a penalty corner, could have been avoided. Manpreet Singh was on the line and got his stick to Roderick Weusthof’s shot, but could not keep it down.Sardar seemed off colour in the first half, but was his usual self in the second. The other player to have a great game was captain and goalkeeper Bharat Chetri, who made three or four great saves. SV Sunil was also good with the ball and went past defenders regularly.Chief coach Michael Nobbs would have changed tactics at half-time as the Indians came out recharged in the second half. Their physical fitness came to the fore and Indians outclassed the Dutch in the second half.I am disappointed that after Dharamvir Singh and Shivendra Singh scored, India allowed the Netherlands to score a third goal.advertisementNobody charged out Mink van der Weerden as he came inside to shoot home. India earned two penalty corners but failed to convert either. Indians have started their campaign with a respectable performance, though I would have been much happier if the match had ended in a draw.They face New Zealand next. The Kiwis lost to Korea in their opener, but they have always given India a tough game. They are fighters and have a very good penalty corner battery. We are slow starters at the Olympics, so all is not lost yet.(The writer is a 1980 Moscow Olympics gold medallist)
