Policemen were also ordered to carry long andshort firearms and be ready to engage the rebels if attacked,” said PoliceCaptain Antonio Monreal, IPPO spokesperson. Of particular concern to the IPPO are16 towns considered rebel-infested. These are the following: The Army explained there could be moreclashes in the days leading to the NPA’s founding anniversary on March 29. “Mahirap magbigay ng specific date kung hanggangkailan ang warning,” he said. “Namatayanang mga rebelde. Baka gustong bumawi.” AIN’T NO MOUNTAIN HIGH. Hikers trek to Mt. Napulak in Igbaras, Iloilo. Mt. Napulak is a favorite destination of hiking enthusiasts but according to the Philippine Army, it is not safe to go there at this time, citing a series of clashes between government troops and New People’s Army rebels.

In recent years, the twomunicipalities’ hinterlands have been attracting tourists, specifically hikers.In Miag-ao, the Kabugsokan Falls in Barangay Dalije and Tinagong Dagat inBarangay Ongyod are fledgling tourist spots. ILOILO – Citing the recent successiveencounters between rebels and government troops in the municipalities ofMiag-ao and Igbaras, the Philippine Army advised mountain hiking enthusiastsand tourists to stay away from the two areas for now. Rebels usually mark their anniversaryby staging offensives against government troops. * San Rafael and Lemery in the 5thDistrictcenter_img On the other hand, Mt. Opao and Mt.Napulak in Igbaras are favorite destinations of mountain trekkers. On Sept. 20 government troops and some15 rebels clashed in Barangay Ongyod, Miag-ao.

Photoafrica shows Africa’s cityscapes

Mimi Cherono Ng’ok’s winning photo from2010, titled “Portrait of the artist as a young woman”, is the 2011 festival poster.(Images: African Film Festival of Tarifa) MEDIA CONTACTS • Filip Hrubý International press officer African Film Festival of Tarifa +420 775 011 550 • Adolphus OparaPhotographer and contestant+234 803 475 1075 RELATED ARTICLES • Bieber wins top press photo award • Cannes triumph for SA films • Local author gets top sci-fi award • SA puppet company wins a Tony • SA short film makes festival finalsShamin ChibbaThis year’s Photoafrica competition showcases the talent of 25 finalists from 11 African countries. The final group was chosen out of 75 applicants – a new record for the contest – who submitted over 400 pictures.The 2011 photography contest is the fourth edition. It takes place in Tarifa, in Cádiz province on Spain’s southernmost coast, between 6 and 19 June as part of the eighth African Film Festival of Tarifa.Of the hundreds of photos entered, just 27 pictures were selected for the exhibition, which will stand outdoors as large format prints before and throughout the festival.Fourteen South Africans made the list of finalists. However, they are up against strong candidates from neighbouring countries Lesotho, Zimbabwe and Mozambique.Contestants from Morocco, Kenya (two finalists), Mali, Nigeria, Senegal, the Democratic Republic of Congo and Tunisia make up the rest of the numbers.Working with this year’s theme Urban Spaces, photographers had to portray their own perceptions of the modern African cityscape.According to Photoafrica coordinator Gaetano Gualdo, the theme encouraged contestants to capture the radical changes taking place in Africa’s cities as more of its people relocate from rural to urban areas.The contest is open to all African artists living in an African country. The three best works will win €1 500 (R15 000), €1 000 (R10 000) and €500 (R5 000) respectively.Photos that tell storiesGualdo said the three prize-winning photographers are chosen according to artistic criteria, and that the photos have to tell a story and provide a new angle of view on African urban reality.He added that contestants are adjudicated on their use of light and composition in an artistic way.The 27 hopefuls will be assessed by a jury representing the exhibition’s organisers, Spanish cultural NGO Al Tarab and the Andalusian Centre of Photography.After the festival, the 27 finalists will be exhibited in various cities throughout Africa until the end of 2011.However, Gualdo is unable to list the African cities at present. “This is not fully confirmed yet, as the negotiations are still going on, but we are considering Nairobi, Addis Ababa, Malabo, Bata and others,” he said.A state of restlessnessAs a platform for promising photographers to display their best work, the contest has seen the launch of a number of successful careers.One of them was Nigeria’s Adolphus Opara, who won the first Photoafrica in 2008 and is again competing for the top honour in this year’s competition.Opara tried to capture one thing that African cities shared, which he said was a state of restlessness. He said that when living in a city, there is a feeling that there is always something to do “even when the day has gone its full 24-hour stretch”.He hopes that his 2011 entry, titled Urban Insomnia, will help people to feel the energy that emanates from typical African cities like Lagos.Another previous winner is Mimi Cherono Ng’ok, a photographer who commutes between Nairobi and Cape Town. Ng’ok’s winning shot from last year, titled Portrait of the artist as a young woman, was chosen to illustrate the festival poster for 2011.African photographers “high quality”Gualdo believes there has been a marked improvement in the quality of photographers in the last three years. The number of applications, which has doubled since the first version of the contest, is an indication of this progress.According to Gualdo, the pictures are comparable to those produced by photographers from other continents.Opara echoed Gualdo’s statement and added that, with a little support, African photographers may grow even faster.“I believe African photographers just need to be more professional about their works,” he said. “The larger part of the effort has to be from government authorities in these African countries to genuinely support the arts.”Gualdo said that participation in Photoafrica opens doors to the European cultural scene and helps increase the artists’ visibility, not only in Europe but also in their home countries.Spreading positive African imageReferring to the town’s geographical position, festival director Mane Cisneros said, “Tarifa is the only town all over Europe that wakes up every day looking at Africa.”Tarifa is the closest continental European town to Africa, separated from the continent by the Strait of Gibraltar, and sitting just 14 kilometres from the coast of Morocco. This close proximity has forged strong cultural links between Spain and this part of Africa.Furthermore, Gualdo said the Iberian country is one of the most Africanised in Europe since it is home to a large African contingent.He said the African population enriches Spanish society and resuscitates traditions of mutual history but at the same time its presence is a cause for prejudice and negative perceptions.“That is why the prime mission of our festival and Photoafrica is to spread a positive image of Africa. It is true that there are many problems in Africa, but it is also true that there are many people who are creative and productive, and fight for the development of their countries and people,” said Gualdo.He believes film and photography are superb tools for educating people about Africa.Noncedo Charmaine Mathibela: “Eye co-exist” aims to capture the concrete co-existing with nature.

We will take our chances and win, vows Phala

first_img23 January 2015Bafana Bafana midfielder-cum-striker Thuso Phala says they are prepared to fight to the bitter end to get out of the deep hole they find themselves in.Phala was referring to the 1-3 loss to Algeria in the opening clash of the CAF Orange Africa Cup of Nations Equatorial Guinea 2015 touranment on Monday at Stade de Mongomo.The result has put South Africa in a difficult position to qualify for the knock-out stages.“The dressing room was sad,” he said. “We were very disappointed because, in all honesty, that was a game we were supposed to win and by a big margin. We let the coach down, we let ourselves down and the country down – but it is important for us to forget about the game as soon as we can so we can focus on the challenge ahead.Lessons“The lesson we got out of this match is that we have to take our chances, because if we miss them we will be putting ourselves under pressure. We could have wrapped that game early,” said Phala who scored South Africa’s solitary goal in that match.Bafana Bafana will be hoping for a positive outcome when they face Senegal on Friday, 23 January, at the Estadio de Mongomo.Coach Ephraim Shakes Mashaba has made two changes to South Africa’s starting 11. Jackson Mabokgwane will start in goals in place of Darren Keet, who played against Algeria in the opening match that Bafana Bafana lost 1-3.Playing in front of Mabokgwane will be the back four of Anele Ngcongca at right-back, Thabo Matlaba at left-back, and the central defence pairing of Erick Mathoho and Thulani Hlatshwayo.Coetzee outMathoho returns after a one-match suspension following two yellow cards in the qualifying stages of the tournament. He takes the place of Rivaldo Coetzee, who is out due to a knee injury sustained in the match against Algeria.Both Mathoho and Mabokgwane are playing in their first Afcon tournament.The midfield remains unchanged with Dean Furman, Andile Jali, Oupa Manyisa and Thuso Phala, who scored South Africa’s only goal in the opening match, given the nod. Furman will once again captain the side.Tokelo Rantie and Sibusiso Vilakazi also retain their places upfront.“We all come from teams who have lost games before; we have all been in a hole before,” Phala said. “We came together as players and spoke about it. We keep motivating ourselves because we know we are a good team and we will come back strongly in the remaining two games.”Bafana play Ghana in their final Group C match on 27 January.Kick off is at 9pm SA time (8pm local time) at Stade de Mongomo. How they will line up:SA XI vs Algeria: 22-Jackson Mabokgwane (GK), 6-Anele Ngcongca, 11- Thabo Matlaba, 14-Thulani Hlatshwayo, 3-Eric Mathoho, 15-Dean Furman (C), 5-Andile Jali, 20-Oupa Manyisa, 18-Thuso Phala, 10-Sibusiso Vilakazi, 23-Tokelo Rantie.Subs: 16-Darren Keet (GK), 1-Brilliant Khuzwayo (GK), 21-Ayanda Gcaba, 13-Thamsanqa Sangweni, 19-Themba Zwane, 12-Reneilwe Letsholonyane, 7-Mandla Masango, 8-Bongani Zungu, 17-Bernard Parker, 4-Siyabonga Nhlapho, 9-Bongani Ndulula.Injured: 2-Rivaldo CoetzeeAFCON 2015 FIXTURESAll times CAT (SA, GMT+2)Friday 23 January 2015Ghana v Algeria – Estadio de Mongomo: 6pmSouth Africa v Senegal – Estadio de Mongomo: 9pmSaturday 24 January 2015Cote d’Ivoire v Mali – Nuevo Estadio de Malabo: 6pmSunday 25 January 2015Gabon v Equatorial Guinea – Estadio de Bata: 8pmCongo v Burkina Faso – Nuevo Estadio de Ebebiyin: 8pmMonday 26 January 2015Cape Verde Islands v Zambia – Nuevo Estadio de Ebebiyin: 8pmCongo DR v Tunisia – Estadio de Bata: 8pmTuesday 27 January 2015South Africa v Ghana – Estadio de Mongomo: 8pmSenegal v Algeria – Nuevo Estadio de Malabo: 8pmWednesday 28 January 2015Guinea v Mali – Estadio de Mongomo: 8pmCameroon v Cote d’Ivoire – Nuevo Estadio de Malabo: 8pmSaturday 31 January 2015Group A Winner v Group B Second Place – Estadio de Bata: 6pmGroup B Winner v Group A Second Place – Nuevo Estadio de Ebebiyin: 9pmSunday 1 February 2015Group C Winner v Group D Second Place – Estadio de Mongomo: 6pmGroup D Winner v Group C Second Place – Nuevo Estadio de Malabo: 9pmWednesday 4 February 2015Quarterfinal 1 Winner v Quarterfinal 4 Winner – Estadio de Bata: 9pmThursday 5 February 2015Quarterfinal 2 Winner v Quarterfinal 3 Winner – Nuevo Estadio de Malabo: 9pmSaturday 7 February 2015Semifinal 1 Loser v Semifinal 2 Loser – Nuevo Estadio de Malabo: 8pmSunday 8 February 2015Semifinal 1 Winner v Semifinal 2 Winner – Estadio de Bata: 9pmSource: South African Football Associationlast_img read more

OH SO CLOSE FOR NSW 15’S

first_imgMAROONS GET UP IN A THRILLER The 15 Years Boys Grand Final ended up in a drop-off, with NSW producing a great tactical game to push pre-game favourites Qld all the way to the wire in the much anticipated clash of the school Touch titans on Field one at Owen Park yesterday. The motivating presence of former Qld State of Origin Rugby League and Penrith 2003 Grand Final hero Scott Sattler, who spoke with the Qld boys before the battle, was not enough to throw the NSW boys off their game. From the opening whistle, the NSW 15 Years Boys came out switched on with their `A’ game intact, much more intense than their subdued performance in their 8-4 round loss to the Maroons on Tuesday. The urgency in defence was obvious, the talk enthusiastic and positive, and, as Apollo Creed said to Rocky, “The Eye of the tiger man – you’ve got to have the Eye of the tiger”. The NSW boys had done their homework, stiffened up their middle defence, and decided to work as a unit to counter Qld’s short steppy game. Coach Mark Hildebrandt had also addressed the problems the boys had had earlier in the week with lack of cohesion, consistent commitment to driving and attacking flow. The game initially was an end-to-end arm wrestle with both sides more committed to doing the hard work and securing field position in traditional drive rucking mode than they have been all tournament. Driving, we though, was something these boys only did on the Dream World dodgems, not with the legs and arms, so expansive had their clash in the round game been. NSW’s aggressive approach to attack and defence seemed to surprise the Queenslanders, who were waiting for the NSW challenge to peter out, as it had in the round game, but NSW, playing with purpose and energy, out enthused the Maroons early. The playmakers in both sides were like snipers firing shots when the opportunity arose from their sonic fast feet to sniff out any momentary defensive laxity. After ten minutes of an absorbing ruck / defend battle, the zip zip man we told you about in the round game wrap-up on Tuesday, decided enough was enough, and weaved some magic that had the crowd gasping and left the Queenslanders grasping at thin air. Kialu Brown picked up the ball from half, feigned left, stepped right, and as the defence adjusted to the right, he then popped a magic ball left into the hole for the ever present Ezekiel Meares to snaffle the ball for a 1-0 lead to NSW. The Qld Boys were stung into action and replied immediately with a well worked tap play that saw Cameron Curtis throw the last pass for Luke Capewell to dot down and put the Queenslanders back on level terms at 1-1. Josh Costello, John Tyson, David Briggs, and Dwayne Conlon started to relax and find some rhythm for Qld after the early speed of the opening exchanges settled. Both teams conceded penalties in good field position, but the defence was up to the task and the stalemate continued for most of the remainder of the half. Kialu Brown and Heath Bassett were working hard with Kenneth Forrest for NSW and posing lots of questions for the Queensland defence. Looking at the watch, time was up for the first half, so if you left your seat to grab a drink, you would have missed a great piece of play – that’s the NSW defender’s justification anyway! The siren sounding in the background, David Briggs ran hard sideways, his defender hanging back ever so slightly, Briggs feigned to go at the line himself, then straightened and threw a magic one handed short, low ball in traffic for the opportunistic Josh Costello to pounce on and score and give the NSW boys’ first swig of water at the break a particularly bitter taste. At 2-1 it was game on and everyone knew we were in for some game! The money invested in half-time entertainment was not well spent, with Usher pulling the pin at the last moment – thankfully the boys from Victoria, after enjoying their Plate final victory in the 15 Years division, stepped in and entertained the crowd with an impromptu haka. On the resumption of play it wasn’t long before Qld pressed the NSW line with David Briggs and Dwayne Conlon prominent. NSW worked hard in this passage and contained Briggs particularly well, with his head snapping more effective than his feet – Kelly Woods has got some competition in that department at last! The Queenslanders appeared frustrated and a controversial forward pass ruling when a touchdown seemed in the offing did little to improve their composure as a series of promising attacking raids came to naught. Kialu Brown decided to impart himself on the game again, and in one of their first shots in the second half, the clever # 7 surprised the defence by stepping back to the short side out of half and throwing a beautiful cut-out to Paul Rath who speared over in the corner to square the ledger at 2-2. Qld persisted with a short steppy style, but it was not working, and if they were going to get back into the game, they needed to mix it up and stretch NSW in different ways. Five minutes later Qld, after some good drive and expansive passing, created an overlap. A quick pass was thrown in the name of a touchdown and it produced one – but not for the intended recipient. That man Kialu Brown produced another huge play by snaffling an intercept and showing the Queenslanders the colour of his cleats as he raced away to take his team out to an imposing 3-2 lead with not a lot of time remaining. Qld were not desperately seeking Susan, but the equaliser, to push the game into extra time, and after concerted pressure, the enigmatic Josh Costello was the man for the job for Qld. The Qld # 7 produced his own piece of magic, just as he had in the round game clash with NSW on Tuesday. He ran across field feigned a switch, straightened, accelerated ran hard at the corner, then when the defence committed, he served up a well timed switch pass for Cameron Curtis to race in and apply the defibrillator to Qld’s title aspirations, 3-3. Right on full time a Qld raid was denied by some fantastic NSW defence and we were going into over time. The home town crowd got right behind the Queenslanders, and as the team was cocooned in their huddle before the drop off, they couldn’t help but be energised by the “Queensland” chant that emanated from spectators who tried desperately to lift their team’s spirit for the do or die moments awaiting. Qld had the tap and their `A’ list of attacking players took the field, determined to end the contest quickly. Josh Costello, the man for a big attacking occasion, created a good phase and Cameron Curtis stepped up to the plate, taking on the defence out of half and giving the Player of the Series, Dwayne Conlon just enough room to slide over and give Qld the title 4 – 3. The Queenslanders were rightfully exuberant, hugging and hi-fiving like they’d just won Lotto, with Josh Costello even producing a few dance moves to celebrate the win. For NSW it was heartbreak after the magnificent effort they mustered. The large crowd acknowledged the Blues skill, guts, and tremendous performance with a prolonged ovation – we’d certainly been treated to a fantastic contest. Kialu Brown was the best player on the field and the NSW playmaker was rightly rewarded with the Player of the final Award, some solace for the defeat. Qld Coach Dan Parker was ecstatic to win the drop off but acknowledged NSW and the magnificent performance they mustered on the day, “A great way to win…we practiced the drop off scenario so we were ok with what we wanted to do, but in many facets of the game NSW were better than us – their team work was probably superior and they dug in and did the little things a bit better than us…they’ve got one or two guys who can hurt you one on one, where as we’ve probably got four or five individuals and in the end we came through.” The Qld Coach who now has 2 Titles from 3 attempts in this division heaped praise on all his players, but was particularly pleased with the contribution of Josh Costello, David Briggs, and Dwayne Conlon who produced the goods under extreme pressure in the final. NSW coach Mark Hildebrandt did a fantastic job in turning the NSW game around in a few short days and his players responded magnificently with a great all round team effort. Game Go to Guy – Kialu Brown NSW – a great all round talent – he can do it all and a big match temperament to match – watch him go. So to the victor the spoils, but rest assured NSW will be back next year better than ever and ready to battle it out with their Qld counterparts and all other States.
