Super Eagles defender, Leon Balogun, has said that tackling racism is a collective responsibility and that more ‘extreme punishments’ are needed.The 31-year-old Brighton defender also supports players walking off the pitch, but admitted it is only part of what needs to be done.Balogun wants those not being targeted on the pitch to fully support their team-mates who feel that leaving the pitch is their only option, so that not too much pressure is put on the individuals. “It’s like they are afraid because the manager might say ‘if you don’t want to play, even though you might be an important player to us, we can replace you’ and so that’s something you will think about at least twice,” Balogun told BBC Africa.“That is what a team is supposed to be. We are a family. We are walking off [together], this would empower so many players who are racially abused because that way they then wouldn’t feel alone.”Balogun says in order to get the message across, fans who do not take part in the abuse must also get involved in the battle against racism.“You really take away what they love so much so that they understand we need to rethink here for a minute,” he explained.“So it will also affect people who are not involved in the racial abuse of the players.“People who just happen to be in the stadium and they will be like ‘wait a minute’, those ones, let’s call them idiots are taking away what we love, what we are passionate about.”A recent rise in incidents of racism across Europe has been met with financial penalties and partial stadium closures.He is also adamant that the kind of sanctions being handed down are simply not having the necessary affect.“At the point it’s at right now I think you have to be extreme, even banning a team or like deducting points,” he added.“You need to shock people the same way racism shocks players.“You probably have to go to a place they never expect, where you can actually hurt [punish] those involved in racist behaviour.”The Germany-born player has experienced racism first hand and points to one incident in 2018 when playing for Mainz and he was subjected to monkey chants from Hannover fans.Balogun says authorities also have to make an example of the clubs when their supporters become involved in the racial abuse.“When they are punished, clubs that are affected by the actions of their fans will have to do something about it,” he added.“They will have to find a solution. ‘We are fighting for the championship here or we are fighting for relegation’. We need every point. So they can’t allow or afford to lose points over something which is as stupid as racism.”Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Leon Balogun
London, United Kingdom | AFP | Mohamed Salah was crowned the Premier League’s Players’ Player of the Year on Sunday, with his incredible 41-goal debut season at Liverpool beating out strong competition from Manchester City’s Kevin de Bruyne.“It’s a big honour. I’ve worked hard and I’m very happy to win it,” Salah said at the ceremony on Sunday evening.Salah matched a Premier League record tally for a single season by scoring his 31st league goal of the campaign in a 2-2 draw at West Brom on Saturday.“You’re comparing your name with some great names,” he said, on the prospect of breaking the record. “To break the Premier League record is something huge in England and all over in the world.“There are still three games to go. I want to break this record.”Salah has also netted seven times in eight Champions League games, including in both legs of Liverpool’s 5-1 quarter-final thrashing of City, to carry his side to a first semi-final for a decade. De Bruyne showed why he had been many people’s early-season favourite for the prize with an incredible long-range strike for his 12th goal of the season to go with a league-high number of assists as champions City thrashed Swansea 5-0 on Sunday.“From my point of view when you are analysing 10 months, there is no player better than him,” said City manager Pep Guardiola of the Belgian midfielder.“Maybe there are numbers better but for me he was the best. But it is my opinion, the opinions of the players could be different. But in the end, in summer time he will be at home being champion.”City did pick up a prize from the PFA gala in central London on Sunday, though, as Leroy Sane won the Young Player of the Year.Sane, another City team-mate David Silva, De Bruyne, Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea and Tottenham striker Harry Kane were the other five nominees for the main prize.Share on: WhatsApp

2) Serve as a nucleus for people interested in mountaineering and wishing to associate with others of like interests, and The KMC also manages and maintains the four huts on the famous Bonnington Traverse.Highlights of the KMC’s year are the three-one week hiking camp sessions and the Kokanee Glacier ski week. Both are so much in demand that the club holds lotteries to select the participants.The club’s semi-annual socials are always popular for meeting friends and viewing members’ slide shows of some of their more exotic or adventurous trips.Some things have changed in 50 years. While the KMC frowns on motorized, off-road back country recreation, the back country is becoming increasingly crowded with quads, snow mobiles and commercial cat- and heli-skiing operations.The club doesn’t instruct technical climbing anymore, now relying on certified instructors to provide its members more advanced training.When the KMC isn’t in the back country having fun, some challenges of a different nature are taken on. In the early years, the club lobbied successfully for preservation of Kokanee Glacier Park and the formation of the Valhalla Provincial Park and the Purcell Wilderness Conservancy.Today, the KMC is actively trying to keep the Jumbo Valley ‘wild’ and is rallying opposition to the resort’s development.Another concern is that, while access to the back country is better than it was in the 60’s thanks to logging roads, today many of the forestry roads are being decommissioned and some of the favorite hiking and climbing destinations are once again becoming difficult to impossible to access.On (Saturday) June 7 the KMC will celebrate its 50th anniversary and host the Federation of Mountain Clubs of BC’s AGM in Castlegar.The club is partnering with the FMCBC to fill the 200+ seats in the Old Castlegar Theatre to hear guest speaker, Dave Quinn, the ‘Outdoor Guy’ on CBC Radio West, talk that evening about conservation issues and his adventures in the Kootenays.The KMC looks forward to meeting the FMCBC Directors representing 31 outdoor clubs from around the province and sharing concerns, solutions and inspirations.Check outKMC at: http://www.kootenaymountaineering.bc.ca 3) Maintain records of pertinent information on trips in the Kootenay area.The club still does all of this, but 50 years ago the logging industry had not cut many roads into the mountains and access to some of the most beautiful Kootenay country was difficult.The early years of the club saw much effort directed into cutting a trail into Mulvey Basin in the Valhallas from where, if not a first summit, then second or third ascents could be launched.Many trails were cut in the KMC’s early years and first ascents were made throughout the Kootenays by KMC members. Weekly rock climbing classes were conducted and early records abound with accounts of very technical climbs. Ski touring and hiking in Kokanee Glacier Park was and still is popular.The old Slocan Chief cabin, built in 1896 to service mining operations in the Kokanee Glacier area, hosted many KMC winter and summer outings.The cabin still exists but today it houses historical information displays and the luxurious Kokanee Glacier Lodge has become the main destination for overnight trips since it was built 10 years ago. The Kootenay Mountaineering Club celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2014.The KMC existed as a section of the Alpine Club of Canada for its first five years, but went its own way when it could not or would not persuade sufficient numbers to sign up with the ACC.Today, the KMC numbers over 300 members and schedules more than 100 outdoor trips and activities every year. Its membership resides primarily in the West Kootenays with most members residing within the Rossland-Trail-Castlegar-Nelson corridor.Fifty years ago the KMC’s constitution stated the objectives of the club were to: 1) Maintain a program of climbs during the summer season and ski touring trips in the winter and spring,

In 2009 Bafana Bafana faced Norway inthe annual Nelson Mandela Challenge. Thehome team won 2-1. Bafana Bafana face the highly ratedUS team in the 2010 edition.(Images: MediaClubsouthafrica.com. Formore free photos, visit the image library)MEDIA CONTACTS • Morio SanyaneSafa communications director+27 82 990 0835Ray MaotaCoach Pitso Mosimane of South Africa’s national football team Bafana Bafana has announced a 23-man squad that will meet the US in the annual friendly Nelson Mandela Challenge.Mosimane announced the squad on 10 November 2010 at the headquarters of the South African Football Association (Safa) in Nasrec, south of Johannesburg’s inner city.The briefing was attended by Mosimane; acting CEO and programmes director of the Nelson Mandela Children’s Fund, Moipone Buda-Ramatlo; Safa communications director Morio Senyane; Bafana manager Barney Kujane; Bafana assistant coach Jairo Leal; and Oupa Ngwenya, head of strategic projects and corporate communications at the Nelson Mandela Children’s Fund.Giving young players a chanceThe match will play out on 17 November at the Cape Town Stadium, built from the ground up for the 2010 Fifa World Cup. Because the match is broadcast not only at home but also in the US through ESPN, kickoff is later than usual, at 9:30pm. This year’s challenge is the 16th edition.Mosimane said: “This is a friendly match so I will be trying to have a look at other players and for that to happen I had to leave out some of the regulars in the team.”The absence of experienced campaigners like captain Aaron Mokoena, Katlego Mphela and Macbeth Sibaya attests to this. Defender Bongani Khumalo has been left out due to injury.“Friendly matches are a big challenge because as much as you try to make changes, it means you have to tamper with your winning combinations. But then again these are challenges that exist in this game, we have to strike a balance but also not lose sight of our vision of slowly bringing in young players,” said Mosimane.Defenders recalled to the squad include: Siyanda Xulu of Mamelodi Sundowns, Keegan Ritchie of Moroka Swallows and Bevan Fransman of Hapoel Tel Aviv in Israel. Midfielder Matthew Pattison, whose last Bafana outing was at the pre-World Cup training camp in Durban earlier this year, also returns to the national team.Davide Somma, the England-based Leeds United striker, is the only newcomer. He gets his call-up because of a prolific strike rate at his UK club, which brought in some rave reviews. Somma was born in 1985 in Johannesburg but moved to the US as a 12-year-old before finding his way to England.Mosimane said: “It’s important to give him a chance to see what he is made of, but at the same time I do not want to put him under pressure and give him the idea that he is the answer to our scoring problems.“I just want to give him a chance to play for South Africa and increase our pool of strikers. He has been scoring in almost every match so we have to bring him in and I hope it works out for him,” said Mosimane.The squad that will battle it out with US consists of: goalkeepers – Itumeleng Khune and Moeneeb Josephs; defenders – Siboniso Gaxa; Siyanda Xulu; Morgan Gould; Bevan Fransman; Siyabonga Sangweni; Tsepo Masilela; Keegan Ritchie and Anele Ngocongca; midfielders – Siphiwe Tshabalala; Steven Pienaar; Thanduyise Khuboni; Daylon Classen; Reneilwe Letsholonyane; Andile Jali; Teko Modise; Mathew Pattison and Kagisho Dikgacoi; strikers – Sthembiso Ngcobo; Kermit Erasmus; Davide Somma and Bernard Parker.Bringing the best to South AfricaIn a statement Safa CEO Lesley Sedibe, who wasn’t at the briefing, reiterated the association’s pledge to be a caring organisation.Sedibe said: “The Nelson Mandela Challenge is a prestigious occasion in the international football calendar and is Safa’s commitment to always invite countries of high stature in the international football family.“The highlight of the Challenge will be the presentation of a R1 000 000 (US$145 440) cheque by the two captains to the Nelson Mandela Children’s Fund. It will be donated by Safa and it is in this spirit that we urge the people of Cape Town to fill the stadium to capacity,” said Sedibe.Continuing Mandela’s legacyThe fund expressed its gratitude to Safa for the donation, saying it will go a long way towards putting smiles on the faces of many disadvantaged children.The fund’s acting CEO Moipone Buda-Ramatlo said: “The Foundation is also happy to know that the beautiful game of soccer remains an active ally for the continued safety, protection and care of children.“The wellbeing of children is a cause most dear to our founder Nelson Mandela, as there can be no better future for any society than its children,” said Buda-Ramatlo.Oupa Ngwenya of the Nelson Mandela Children’s Fund said: “As a sports-based fundraising vehicle of the fund, the Nelson Mandela Challenge has been a combination of fun and a demonstration of concern for children’s wellbeing from the football community.”The fund was established by former president Nelson Mandela in 1995, driven by his love for children and his desire to end their suffering.
It isn’t easy to change. Our brain tends to shut down the desire to improve ourselves and our situation as soon as we are comfortable. As long as we don’t experience too much pain, we don’t change. Even if we know we are capable of more, if we could gain pleasure, we still don’t take action.Here’s your motivation (not that you need to be motivated or inspired).Building Your OwnMost of the reason we don’t take the actions we need to to take is because we are afraid.We fear that we will fail and lose the comfort of our identity. We fear being mocked, criticized, or ostracized and lose our connection to the herd. As much as we love novelty, most of us love the warm comfort of the status quo even more. We’re afraid to lose it. But there are outcomes you should fear more than this little list of horribles.You should fear not living up to your full potential. You should fear leaving this place before you realize your dreams. Or before you even attempt them.You should fear failing the people who count on you. You should fear not investing as much as you can in those relationships that are most precious to you.You should fear not making the contribution you know that you can—and should—make. You should fear walking away the fight that had your name all over it. You should fear lying down.You should fear living a lie, living a life of mediocrity, or living someone else’s purpose instead of your own.This is the list of horribles you should fear. This is your burning platform.Light the MatchEach day when your alarm goes off, the fears above are what should motivate you. They represent real and unrelenting danger.Don’t wait for or wish for motivation. You already have everything you need within you right now. And what you don’t have you are resourcefulness to go and discover.You’re holding the match. Go ahead and catch yourself on fire. Essential Reading!
