The “Travnik night race” will be organized for the third time in a row by the Youth Education Center, under the general sponsorship of Pharmamed Ltd. The first night race in BiH is already becoming traditional, and there is an increasing number of runners and recreationalists who do not want to miss this great event every year.“The race is known as the” biggest small race” in BiH and abroad. Although it is “only” five kilometers long, many runners are ranking it among big races because of its uniqueness and high level of organization, which we are trying to maintain and even improve every year. The route of the race goes along the city core of Travnik, right next to its most beautiful monuments, and it has a special atmosphere since it is taking place in the evening hours,” as noted by organizers.The “Travnik night race” has become a great event for the entire family. Last year, we organized the race for chldren under the auspices of Helen Doron SBK LC for the first time, and around 300 children between 4 and 11 years of age took part in the race. We are planning to repeat this beautiful story again this year and give our children a unique gathering and lots of fun.A total of 700 runners from all over BiH, and abroad, took part in this race last year, which is the maximum number of participants. This shows the recognition of this race not only in our country, but in the region and Europe as well. To recall, winners of the last year’s race were Lucia Kimani in the female category, and Osman Junuzovic in the male category.Anyone interested can register for participation in the race, both professional and recreational runners, and you can submit your application on the website http://travniknocnautrka.ba/where you can also find all the neccessary information about the race.(Source: klix.ba)
As the dust settles and bandwagoners watch the National Hockey League (NHL) training to see which team provides the best chance of redemption next year, I can look back at the season and see what is left. Well, a few less cop cars and windows for certain, but the real fans are still standing. It’s well chronicled that I’m not a hockey fan but I am a National Basketball Association (NBA) fan so I can relate to the ups and downs faced by Canucks fans. Where the difference is though, is where bandwagoners come in to play. I appreciate die hard fans of anything, as my neurotic side is evident in all my passions. Bandwagoners, however, are the lowest form of “fan” on the planet. These people make me sick. My theory is, if you can’t name each and every player on “your” team they aren’t yours okay? If you don’t know who they played on the home opener of that season, take off the knockoff jersey you bought at the Chinatown night market and turn the channel. And whatever you do, don’t zing around the term “we” under any circumstance. There is no “we” there are real fans and then you. The phrase du jour in Vancouver is now: “real Fans don’t riot.” While this is true, the inversion is not necessarily. So many people keep proclaiming that the worst offenders aren’t fans. I don’t buy this. A huge number of these idiots were sporting real jerseys worth upwards of 250 bucks and were most certainly keeping an open bar tab to whet their palate during each and every dry second period of the Stanley Cup finals. Don’t try to tell me that a sport predicated on smashing people into glass and ice, funded by the beer industry isn’t going to promote the same behaviour off the ice. BS. “The rioters were well organized anarchists.” Oh get the h…e..double hockey stick out of here. I’m so sick of this weak veil of misdirection that I engage anyone I hear spout this garbage. Did any part of that riot look to be well thought out by planning geniuses? Do you think they’re having their well-organized annual general meeting right now in anticipation of a White Caps flameout? Are they readying their riot gear in case of a meltdown by the local lacrosse team? No, they aren’t because they’re hockey fans. Face it. They aren’t the only ones who behave like this. Don’t get me wrong, European football fans (that means soccer for all you pucks) are some of the most violent fans on earth. They typically target opposing players or refs mind you. They also burn down opponents’ neighbourhoods, not their own. What they don’t do is attach themselves to a team during the conference finals. They bleed their team colours and typically do for most of a lifetime with every loss and relegation more painful than the last. My allegiance to my beloved Chicago Bulls left me disappointed this season but I didn’t don a Miami Heat jersey as the finals began. I simply rooted against them as I hate all they stand for. The Heat is the bandwagoners of the player world. This team of tin men turned their back on cities that cherished them, made them and paid them in order to seek glory in the easiest manner possible. It seemed like they had succeeded too until a team of relatively old, washed up players took them out in the finals in a gutsy performance. A heartwarming story of redemption and overcoming obstacles for sure, but not enough to make me jump ship. Sure it was weird to not have a team I like in the finals but I stayed true to the team I’ve watched since I was nine. And when my team lost I simply ranted on Facebook without feeling the need to smash windows or burn cop cars. And I’m a fan of a sport that’s supposed to consist of thugs raised by thugs, so why couldn’t hockey fans keep their cool? I realize I’m probing a sensitive spot with the majority of Canadians being hockey fans and the game seven loss still in our rear-view, so I’d like to point out that the bandwagoners caught most of my ire. That said, I expect hate mail from you passive aggressive lot so I’ve turned up my spam filter from “Luongo” to “Thomas” just in case.
possible standings 4 gameday cracker One thing Noble could always be relied upon was his composure and consistency from the penalty spot, having scored an impressive 31 in his career thus far.However, fans were left perplexed as to why Marko Arnautovic stepped up to slam home a spot-kick against the Cherries on Saturday, but a club insider has revealed all.According to the trusty @ExWHUemployee on Twitter, Noble has even been stripped of penalty duties after missing a spot-kick in pre-season. Mark Noble.West Ham’s engine room. pic.twitter.com/eL2PhxmMy3— Dave Ellis (@fullback03) August 20, 2018For years, Noble has been portrayed as the ‘local lad’ who is living his dream and giving everything for the shirt. His unquestionable loyalty regularly allows him to escape unscathed when results are bad.When new Crystal Palace signing Cheikhou Kouyate was caught failing to track back towards the end of his ill-fated career in east London, he was continually chastised by the Hammers faithful. silverware England’s most successful clubs of the past decade, according to trophies won impact Liverpool news live: Klopp reveals when Minamino will play and issues injury update 4 England’s most successful clubs of the past decade, according to trophies won Noble has given his all for the club, but the pace of the Premier League has caught up with him. Every current Premier League club’s best kit from the past decade smart causal REVEALED A Premier League winner, Pellegrini knows the importance of winning, but is able to do so with style.Under his tutelage, Manchester City played fast, attacking football and tore teams apart for fun.If West Ham are even going to consider breaking into the fabled European places, they must sacrifice the archaic and sluggish ‘Mr. West Ham’ who only serves to clog up their midfield.Footage captured from the weekend’s defeat at home to Bournemouth shows just how off the pace the 31-year-old is and how the demands of Premier League football are now too much. 4 ALTERED Latest Premier League news Sentimentality is the only thing keeping Noble in the West Ham midfield How the Premier League table could change after the Boxing Day fixtures latest Mark Noble is seriously hampering West Ham United’s chances of progressing in the Premier League under Manuel Pellegrini.The Chilean was brought in over the summer to replace David Moyes and inject some much-needed vitality and excitement to a rather dour West Ham side.

He wants out.— Brownie (@WestHamMatters) January 2, 2018So why does Noble manage to escape criticism?With the Premier League continually becoming much more pace-orientated, West Ham can ill-afford to remain so vulnerable in their engine room. His loyalty cannot be questioned, but Noble is weighing the Hammers down revealed The average first-team salaries at every Premier League club in 2019 Where Ancelotti ranks with every Premier League boss for trophies won But after spending over £100million on transfers in the summer, how much time can Manuel Pellegrini have at the London Stadium, and can he can really afford passengers?Although the new boss is undoubtedly a long way away from finding his favoured starting XI, it remains to be seen if ‘Mr. West Ham’ will be part of that. Tottenham predicted XI to face Brighton with Mourinho expected to make big changes Like all West Ham fans, Noble loves a maverick The reason Noble didnt take the the penalty yesterday according to one of my sources was because he missed one in preseason and it was also felt by letting Arnautovic take the penalties he has a greater chance of being one of the league’s top scorers.— ExWHUemployee (@ExWHUemployee) August 19, 2018There are a number of possible reasons for Pellegrini continuing to persist with Noble, all equally valid.Seven summer signings were given home debuts on Saturday, with the argument being made that Noble is needed as a cohesive mechanism in the side.He revealed to The Telegraph before the beginning of last season he constantly called Arnautovic after the forward arrived from Stoke City last season to offer him assistance and make sure the new signing settled.There is also evidence to suggest Noble thrives when the club have splashed on luxury, maverick players.

After conceding 68 goals last season, they have already started this season by shipping six. Noble’s personal statistics show he has failed to make a single interception, block or clearance this campaign.For eagle-eyed fans, this will hardly come as a surprise.The club captain has been on the wane ever since the 2015/16 campaign where Dimitri Payet nearly single-handedly dragged the club into the Champions League.During the course of the season, he averaged 2.8 tackles per game as well as 2.2 interceptions. The following season, it had dropped to just 1.6 tackles and 1.3 interceptions per game. REVEALED How Everton could look in January under Ancelotti with new signings How Arsenal could line up in Arteta’s first official game in charge – Ozil return? Against Liverpool on the opening weekend of the season, Noble was more than happy to play conservative side-to-side passes, doing little else other than to boost his own pass completion rate.He lacks the cutting edge of a modern Premier League midfielder, woefully lacking the ability to either beat a man or to find a defence-splitting pass.Last season, he failed to record a single assist in the league and made just 17 chances – even Chelsea’s defensive stalwart N’Golo Kante made 20 more.For those who think he at least offers the Hammers a protective screen, think again.
24 October 2008Volkswagen South Africa has manufactured its 200 000th five-cylinder TDI engine for export from its plant in Uitenhage outside Port Elizabeth in the Eastern Cape.Volkswagen SA (VWSA) announced a R12-billion export contract to supply engines to the Volkswagen Group in 2004. The contract, initially set to run until 2010, has been extended through 2013.VWSA communications GM Bill Stephens said the contract’s required volumes had steadily increased, from the first shipment of 27 500 units in 2004 to an anticipated 60 500 units to be shipped in 2008.“The engines were first used in the range of Volkswagen LT vans, a medium commercial vehicle, which has since been replaced by the Volkswagen Crafter model range, and is part of the Volkswagen SA commercial vehicles range,” Stephens said in a statement this week.“The five-cylinder TDI engine has evolved with changes in the model range. The latest engines are manufactured in four derivatives ranging from 65kW to 120kW.”Euro 5 emissions standardsAccording to Stephens, the engines presently comply with Euro 4 emission standards and will be upgraded to comply with Euro 5 standards from 2009.The engines are unique, as the cylinder bores are polished with an extremely high-pressure water jet. According to the auto maker, this is to the advantage of the customer as it leads to lower running costs and extends the lifespan of the engine.Volkswagen SA has invested R240-million in its facilities to successfully manage the contract, which has enabled the automotive manufacturer to secure an additional 250 jobs over the period in its engine manufacturing facility in Uitenhage.Indirectly, an additional 130 jobs have been created at the suppliers involved, which include Halberg Guss South Africa, Halberg Aluminium, LuK Africa, Sentech Industries, First Pro Engineering, Smiths Plastics and Zealous Automotive.“Volkswagen SA is currently developing a new engine export strategy which will result in additional export opportunities to major overseas markets,” Stephens said. “The engine manufacturing plant in Uitenhage is a key factor in the company’s future export strategy.”SAinfo reporter Would you like to use this article in your publicationor on your website?See: Using SAinfo material

Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Jim Noel, NOAAThere is no change from last week as an overall wetter than normal pattern will persist into the October harvest season.The one thing that has changed is that temperatures after last week’s hot weather do not look as warm into October. Temperatures are now more likely to be normal or maybe a degree above normal.It still looks like the first freeze is on track with a near normal arrival. Most places tend to be in the October 10-20 range in Ohio from northwest to south.Looking further ahead in November, indications are for a warmer and not as wet period. Rainfall will likely be normal or possibly slightly below normal.Rainfall over the next two weeks will average 2-5 inches. Normal is about 1.5 inches.
With two down in the 10th, Jansen hit McCann on the hand with a pitch and Springer walked.Bregman, who homered off Jansen in Saturday night’s loss, lined the next pitch over shortstop to score pinch-runner Derek Fisher, who slid home ahead of the throw from left fielder Andre Ethier.“We’re up 3-2, baby,” Bregman said.Out of nowhere, the Astros climbed out of a four-run hole against Kershaw and then erased two more deficits later in the game, tying it each time on a homer.Correa leaped and twirled after launching a two-run drive that made it 11-8 in the seventh . Much later, he hurdled the dugout railing the moment Bregman lined his winning single.Bellinger hit a three-run drive in the fifth that made it 7-4 and seemed to swing things back in the Dodgers’ favor. By the end of the mayhem on the mound, it was a mere afterthought.Each team had 14 hits, eight for extra bases, and both used seven pitchers.“Man, I’m mentally exhausted right now,” Bellinger said.Before the game, former Presidents George H.W. Bush and son George W. Bush were on the field for the first-pitch ceremony. By the end of the night, most everyone was bushed.The Astros (13) and Dodgers (9) topped the Series mark for homers , set when Barry Bonds and the Giants lost to the Angels in seven games in 2002. The Houston Astros celebrates after Alex Bregman (2) game winning single during Game 5 of baseball’s World Series against the Los Angeles Dodgers Monday, Oct. 30, 2017, in Houston. Astros won 13-12. (AP Photo/Matt Slocum)HOUSTON — When the winning run finally came sliding across home plate on Alex Bregman’s single, more than five unforgettable hours after the first pitch, a frantic Carlos Correa sprinted toward his Houston Astros teammates in the middle of the diamond.Arm in the air, pure elation all over his face.ADVERTISEMENT Keuchel never got into a rhythm during the shortest home start of his All-Star career. His breaking pitches spun without much movement, and he was pulled in the fourth.The Dodgers hadn’t lost a game this year when they led by four runs. But Kershaw’s bedeviling postseason past came back to haunt him at the worst time.Kershaw was pulled after a pair of two-out walks in the bottom of the fifth. And with the crowd sensing something big, the 5-foot-6 Altuve connected off Kenta Maeda for a home run that made it 7-all.“At that point, I talked to him before getting the at-bat: ’This is your moment,’” Correa said. “And he didn’t let me down. He hit a homer and got us going.” Altuve, Correa, Yuli Gurriel, George Springer and Brian McCann homered for Houston , the highest-scoring team in the majors this season.Cody Bellinger and Yasiel Puig went deep for the Dodgers, who scored three times in the ninth to make it 12-all.“It’s hard to put into words all the twists and turns in that game,” Astros manager A.J. Hinch said.“These are just two really good teams, just throwing haymakers at each other trying to outlast each other,” he said.Silent when ace Dallas Keuchel got crushed, the orange-clad fans erupted over and over as the Astros sent balls careening all around — and out of — the park.Yet on another night of Home Run Derby in the Year of the Home Run, no lead was safe.Puig lined a two-run shot in the ninth, the record 22nd homer in a single Series, and Chris Taylor’s two-out single off Chris Devenski tied it.“I think this whole series has been an emotional roller coaster,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. “It’s the two best teams playing for a championship. And these are two teams that play 27 outs.”More than that, in fact.Houston posted its second extra-inning victory of the Series, adding to its 7-6, 11-inning comeback win in a dramatic Game 2.

After Correa hit an RBI double, Gurriel launched a tying, three-run drive.Kershaw whipped his head around to watch Gurriel’s drive sail, his face immediately showing shock, utter disbelief and frustration, all wrapped up in one expression before he bent over, hands on his knees.Yanked in the fifth, Kershaw trudged off with a dubious distinction — he has allowed a postseason-record eight home runs this year.“Just exactly what you expect (when you) come to the park with Keuchel and Kershaw pitching,” Hinch said.Hardly a repeat performance from the opener, when Kershaw dominated while outpitching Keuchel for a 3-1 win.Gurriel’s second homer of the Series also kept open this possibility: Imagine the scene if Major League Baseball presents Gurriel with the MVP trophy, so soon after Commissioner Rob Manfred suspended him for the first five games next year for making a racist gesture toward Dodgers pitcher Yu Darvish. A last indelible image from a World Series classic filled with them.Correa, Jose Altuve and the Astros kept hammering away in a wild slugfest that no one saw coming, rallying against Clayton Kershaw and rocking the Los Angeles Dodgers 13-12 in 10 thrilling innings Sunday night for a 3-2 lead.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSSEA Games: Philippines picks up 1st win in men’s water poloSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutout“I feel like I’m going to have a heart attack out there,” Correa said.In a tension-filled game of monster momentum swings at pulsating Minute Maid Park, the last one belonged to Bregman .

I can play a 10-hour game if we are going to win,” Altuve said.Now, with both bullpens worn down, the teams get a day to recover.
