Redknapp explains why Townsend has turned a corner at QPR

first_imgHarry Redknapp believes his decision to deploy Andros Townsend on the right wing has been the key to the youngster’s impressive spell at QPR.Townsend, on loan from Redknapp’s former club Tottenham, arrived at Loftus Road in January having had disappointing stints on loan at a number of League clubs.But the 21-year-old has been excellent for Rangers – and Redknapp says the change of position has helped.Redknapp rates Townsend highly.“Whereas he played out on the left all the time, I’ve stuck him out on the right wing and I think it suits him,” said the R’s boss.“He comes inside on his left foot, get shots in and I think it’s a switch that suits him well.”Redknapp has expressed doubts that Townsend will establish himself in the Spurs first team next season but does feel the player has shown he belongs in the top flight.“He’s got his work cut out at Spurs, with Gareth Bale and Aaron Lennon there, but he’ll be a good player for them to have next year,” said Redknapp.“I’m sure he’ll go back there a better player than the one that came here. He’s now proven to himself that he can play in the Premier League.”See also:Boss doubts Townsend will break through at Tottenham next 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 Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

BRICS countries pledge Africa support

first_img26 March 2013Trade ministers from the five BRICS countries – Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa – pledged increased support for the African continent during the BRICS Business Forum in Durban on Tuesday.Addressing nearly 1 000 businesspeople from the five countries at Durban’s International Convention Centre, Brazil’s Minister of Development Industry and Foreign Trade, Fernando Pimental, said it was important to strengthen commercial ties between BRICS members and to increase trade with African countries.India’s Minister of Commerce, Industry and Textiles, Anand Sharma, said India had made a considered decision to share its information technology capabilities with Africa.Through the Pan African e-Network Project, tele-education and tele-medicine technologies linked key universities and doctors in 47 Africa countries with those in India.Through the Indian Technical and Economic Cooperation (Itec) programme, India had also provided scholarships to tens of thousands of African students to help them study in India.India would now help to set up 70 higher education institutions in African countries in areas such as agricultural training and IT, Sharma said.South African Trade and Industry Minister Rob Davies told the Forum that the BRICS trade ministers had, in their earlier discussions, agreed that they would support regional integration and industrialisation measures between their respective countries.Davies noted that the success of the BRICS partnership would be measured not only in the amount by which trade increased, but also in the partnerships that members were able to develop to support growth in productive capacity.Delegates at the Business Forum were optimistic about the African market.Paritosh Gupta, chief executive of Indian infrastructure company IL&FS, said his firm had been visiting east and southern Africa for five years now in search of rail, mine and roads projects.“Definitely in the next five years, this will be a very happening place, and I think South Africa in a way will be a gateway to eastern Africa,” Gutpa said, adding that South Africa could provide strong legal and financial support.Andrey Makov, of Russian machine-building company UVZ, said there were “a lot of prospects in the development of economic relations between South Africa and Russia in many spheres”, adding that he believed South Africa could play a key role in driving investment in Africa as the “locomotive” of growth.Writing in a special BRICS edition of the magazine “Russia and India”, the vice-president of the Russian Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Georgy Petrov, pointed out that there were many Russian companies already in South Africa, in areas such as mining and hydrocarbons.“I would say Russian business is returning to Africa, and South Africa is becoming a gateway to the African continent for Russian people,” Petrov wrote.The fifth BRICS summit will be officially opened on Wednesday when South African President Jacob Zuma and his BRIC counterparts meet for formal discussions.Source: SAnews.gov.zalast_img read more

Jowers, MSPexels [Book by Caio, CC0]Teaching children about diversity and inclusion can be challenging for parents and professionals. In this article from PBS Parents, Dr. Chris Metzler has several suggestions when talking to kids about respecting differences [1]. These suggestions include:Leading by example is overly important for parents and adults if they want children to learn more about being open to accepting differences.By getting out of your comfort zone and experiencing communities that have diverse differences than our own. He suggests seeking out cultural events in your local communities.By listening and responding to our language used in conversations about diversity and inclusion, including exploring how language and stereotypes can be hurtful.To not be “blind” to differences in those around us and to be genuinely curious, but respectful, to practices in other cultures.Finally, Dr. Metzler suggests to avoid political correctness as that can lead to stereotyping and not allowing to see the whole individual.One great resource we found that is kid-friendly is the book “There’s a Cat in Our Class! A Tale about Getting Along” by Jeanie Franz Ransom. This is a fantastic book for children on exploring diversity and inclusion, as well as giving parents and professionals an avenue to discuss these subjects with young children.

Developing Culturally Alert Communication in Relationships.” This webinar examines the relationship between self-awareness, knowledge of others, and culturally alert interventions that can be utilized when working with clients.References[1] Metzler, C.
