SA women win bronze in Champions Challenge

first_img5 May 2014 The South African women’s hockey team claimed third place in the FIH Champions Challenge in Glasgow on Sunday after edging Spain 1-0 in a tightly contested match for the bronze medal. The USA lifted the title with a 3-1 victory over Ireland. Dirkie Chamberlain’s penalty stroke three minutes from time decided the outcome. “I just took it as though it was in a training session,” she said afterwards. The victory served as a degree of consolation for the girls in green and gold, who were desperately unfortunate to lose their Saturday semi-final 2-1 to Ireland despite dominating the match.‘We are elated’ “We came out today and gave everything. It’s a wonderful team. We really got stuck in,” Chamberlain said. “We are elated, but I must pay a compliment to Spain for giving us such a great match. They didn’t make it easy for us, but we just kept going, never stopped believing.” The crowd gave both sides a lengthy ovation in appreciation of a match that proved one doesn’t have to have a lot of goals to make for an enthralling contest. On another day, though, the score might well have gone into double figures. Chamberlain had taken a fearful blow to the head as early as the seventh minute and had to be helped off, but the goal scorer returned to the fray less than five minutes later, which was indicative of the determination with which South Africa approached the match.Fine saves Both goalkeepers, Anelle van Deventer and Spain’s Maria Zubiria de Eguilaz Lopez, made a number of fine saves, while to a player both sides gave their all and then some. Even though the score was low, both sides shone on attack, while on defence some of the South African tackle-backs to regain possession were out of the top drawer. Chamberlain’s winner came after succesive shots by Celia Evans and Bernie Coston after South African captain Marsha Cox had made the initial pass. Coston’s effort hit a defender’s foot on the goal line, and Chamberlain went low to Lopez’s right from the penalty spot for the decisive moment of the match.World Cup The SA team touch down in Johannesburg Tuesday morning before flying to The Netherlands five days later for a training camp ahead of the World Cup in The Hague, which takes place from 31 May to 15 June.CLASSIFICATION RESULTS7th/8th: Scotland 4-3 India 5th/6th: South Korea 1-1 Belgium (Shootout Korea 2-1 Belgium)3rd/4th: South Africa 1-0 SpainFinal: USA 3-1 IrelandSOUTH AFRICA RESULTSSouth Africa 2-2 IrelandSouth Africa 2-1 USASouth Africa 1-1 SpainSouth Africa 2-1 ScotlandSouth Africa 1-2 IrelandSouth Africa 1-0 Spain SAinfo reporterlast_img read more

Changing the Audio Editing Game with PremiumBeat’s Track Stems

first_imgLooking for some more creativity when working with audio tracks in your edit? With track stems, you can create a whole new sound for your project.Something glorious has happened: PremiumBeat has recently introduced stems as a downloadable option for most of their music tracks. Now excuse me while I nerd out. What Are Stems?For those of you who are scratching your head asking, “What in the world are stems?” Here’s a quick answer:Stems are individual audio tracks of a song that separate crucial instruments.For example, if you download the song “Inspiring Victory,” it comes divided into seven isolated tracks: drums, bass, instrumental swells, piano, guitar, isolated swells, and shaker.You can use each of these stems as an individual background track, or you can layer them on top of each other to create a unique version of the same song.Old Song, New TricksOne of my favorite tricks when applying stems is using only one of the audio tracks to create a unique sound. This trick can make an overused song feel original and complement your video.Same Song, New GenreIndividual tracks can also change the tone of your project. For instance, a drum stem might give you an upbeat, motivational tone, while a bass track gives you a dark and moody feeling.Increasing Your OptionsWith stems, you’re increasing your sound options. For example, if you take the drum stem and put it into reverse, you’re developing a unique track that sits well on its own and might better fit your project.Essentially, working with individual tracks makes audio manipulation a whole lot more fun.Above All ElseWhatever project you layer these into, stems are a total game changer. Have fun, get creative, and explore all the options.Cover image via Varunyuuu.Interested in the tracks we used to make this video?“Laidback Summer Vibe” by Mattijs Muller“Inspiring Victory” by CymatixLooking for more video tutorials?

RCMP warns more confrontations loom if reinforcements bolster Mikmaq ranks

first_img(RCMP officers display cache of weapons seized during Thursday’s raid. APTN/Photo)APTN National NewsFREDERICTON, N.B.-A senior RCMP officer warned Friday reinforcements reportedly travelling to New Brunswick to bolster Mi’kmaq ranks could lead to a repeat of the heavily-armed raid of a warrior society-anchored anti-fracking encampment by RCMP tactical units the day before.Assistant Commissioner Roger Brown issued the warning during a press conference displaying rifles, ammunition and knives seized during Thursday’s raid. Brown said RCMP officers also seized improvised explosive devices.“I am very concerned that others may be coming in support of or otherwise and my concern on that is how this is going to unfold today or tomorrow,” said Brown.While Thursday’s raid appears to have temporarily neutralized some key players within the Mi’kmaq Warrior Society, there are widespread reports reinforcements are travelling to New Brunswick from other First Nation communities to join in the cause.Images of camouflaged RCMP officers in sniper positions and burning cruisers inflamed emotions as they flashed across social media platforms Thursday.Brown called for calm.“I am urging everybody to allow things to calm down and everyone who wants to demonstrate to do so in a peaceful and law abiding manner,” he said.Brown said shots were fired from within the encampment and Molotov cocktails were thrown at police during the raid. He said the RCMP seized three bolt-action, single shot hunting rifles, one fashioned with a bayonet, at the site which sits about 15 kilometres northeast of Elsipogtog First Nation and 80 kilometres north of Moncton.RCMP officers, some wearing camouflage and wielding assault weapons, cleared the encampment Thursday to free SWN Resources Canada’s exploration vehicles which had been blocked by anti-fracking activists backed by the Mi’kmaq Warrior Society.The guns were displayed on a table during a press conference at the RCMP’s New Brunswick headquarters in Fredericton. The guns appeared alongside piles of ammunition, bear spray and knives.Brown said the guns, which were all legal, were hidden within the encampment which proved there were nefarious intentions behind their possession.“When you see firearms of that nature, hidden underneath a tent, with ammo and fully accessible at a second’s notice, that is not the context one would find normal firearms in this situation,” he said.Chief Superintendant Dwayne Gallant said seized improvised explosive devices included large commercial-grade fireworks packed with shrapnel made from shotgun pellets and small crushed rocks.Brown said the encampment’s weaponry posed a serious public security threat.“What triggered it was that situation was no longer secure, this situation was no longer a peaceful protest and that lives could be in danger,” said Brown.A total of 40 people were arrested during a volatile day of protest that followed the raid. The RCMP said nine people had been charged with pointing a firearm, mischief, assaulting a police officer, resisting arrest, obstructing justice and failing to abide by a court injunction.The RCMP said 31 people had been released on undertakings and promises to appear.There was also an attempt to burn the Elsipogtog RCMP police station at 2:30 a.m. Friday morning. The building is owned by the First Nation and the reserve’s fire department put out the flames before it caused any major damage, said the RCMP.The band council for Elsipogtog First Nation, which has been at the heart of the anti-fracking opposition, distanced itself from the seized weapons. Chief Arren Sock and some band councillors also met with Brown on Thursday evening.“Chief and Council of the Elsipogtog First Nation wish to state clearly that guns and bombs, if any, have no place in our peaceful efforts. The destruction of police vehicles was unfortunate and unnecessary,” said the statement. “A peaceful path forward still exists, but the situation is extremely volatile.”Sock was meeting with New Brunswick Premier David Alward late into the evening Friday.news@aptn.calast_img read more

Four Ohio State football players to play in Senior Bowl

Four seniors from the 2011-12 Ohio State football team will participate in the 2012 Senior Bowl. Offensive linemen Mike Adams and Mike Brewster, running back Daniel “Boom” Herron and wide receiver DeVier Posey will play in the event scheduled for Jan. 28 in Mobile, Ala. “This will mark the 11th straight year that Ohio State University has been represented in our game,” said Senior Bowl president and CEO, Steve Hale. “All four of these players are deserving of this opportunity to showcase their talents in front of the top decision makers in the National Football League.” Washington Redskins coach Mike Shanahan and his assistants will coach the South team and Minnesota Vikings coach Leslie Frazier and his staff will coach the North squad. The four OSU seniors helped contribute to a 39-13 record over the past four years including wins in the Rose Bowl in 2010 and the Sugar Bowl in 2011. The seniors also were a part of arguably the most tumultuous time period in OSU football history, which included the departure of former head coach Jim Tressel and the announcement of new head coach Urban Meyer. The entire 2010-11 season in which the Buckeyes went 12-1 and won the Sugar Bowl was vacated after it was discovered some players, including Herron, Adams and Posey, received improper benefits in exchange for tattoos. Herron was suspended a total of five games in 2011 for his part in the scandal and suspended an additional game for getting paid for work he didn’t perform. In the season’s final seven games, Herron rushed for 675 yards and three touchdowns. He leaves OSU as the school’s 10th leading rusher all-time with 2,869 yards. He also ranks eighth all-time with 33 career touchdowns. Adams was also suspended for the first five games of the 2011 season for his part in the tattoo scandal. He started 25 games in his OSU career and was selected as a 2010 first-team all-Big Ten pick by the coaches and the media. From the fourth game of his freshman year, Brewster started 49 consecutive games at center. He was picked as a 2010 first-team All-American by the Football Writers Association of America. Posey was suspended a total of ten games in the 2011 season for receiving improper benefits for tattoos and being compensated for work he didn’t perform. He finished his career with 136 receptions for 1,955 yards, which rank sixth and eighth respectively all-time at OSU. The four players will travel to Mobile, Ala., for a week of practices before the game. Kickoff is set for 3 p.m. at Ladd-Peebles Stadium. read more

Policy Institute Searches for Better Ways to Keep DC Residents Safe

first_imgThe Justice Policy Institute in Northwest D.C. is advocating a different approach to addressing violence within the community.Marc Schindler, executive director for the institute, a national research and policy organization that works on juvenile and justice issues, told the AFRO on Dec. 8, “It is really impossible to have a conversation about community safety without talking about the all too easy access to fire arms.” He explained the District is a city where firearms are easy to obtain which leads to more violent and often fatal crimes.Other than addressing the issue of gun control, the institute advocates for providing opportunities to young adults and families rather than relying on the aid of police officers.“Too often in poor communities and in communities of color, the first responders are law enforcement.” Schindler said, emphasizing that he would rather a medical agency respond to a crime that involved someone suffering from a mental health disorder then the police department.So the institute encourages policies that could lead to safer communities like having more counselors in the school system. He said the government should spend less money on policing schools and more resources to, “have people respond that are trained to deal with youth behavioral problems.”Although organizations like Justice Policy Institute are trying to prevent misconduct, there is still a surge of aggressive crimes throughout the area, such as the rising number of homicides within the District. According to Metropolitan Police Department, the homicide count is 152 as of Dec. 8, a 58.3 percent rise from the 96 last year.Violent crimes in the area also include a recent wave of armed robberies that occurred over the weekend in Northwest D.C. Police are searching for the group of suspects as concerns for neighborhood safety grow amongst residents.The victims in the assaults in Northwest were not physically harmed, but a Southeast victim, Kwaza K. Blue, 20, died Dec. 5 after being shot.Lauren Poteat contributed to this article.last_img read more
