29 November 2013South African Football Association president Danny Jordaan expressed his delight on Thursday after Fifa confirmed Bafana Bafana’s 1-0 victory over Spain as an “A” category international friendly.Fifa had initially suggested that the match, played at the FNB Stadium in Johannesburg on 19 November, would not be recognised because Spain used more than the allowed six substitutes when they sent on a seventh player, goalkeeper Pepe Reina, to replace Victor Valdez in goal. Valdez had taken over from Iker Casillas earlier in the game.After receiving a letter from Fifa on Thursday, Jordaan said Fifa had confirmed Safa’s position on the contest.‘The country must savour this win’“We complied with all the regulations for this historic victory and I am happy this matter has been laid to rest. The country must savour this win, as Bafana Bafana were the first country to beat Spain on the African continent,” Jordaan said in a statement.“We expect that the impact of the victory will be reflected in the next December Fifa rankings as the ruling arrived on the date the November rankings were released.”Bafana Bafana’s win over Spain, the world number one since 2008 and the reigning European and world champions, was South Africa’s first victory ever over a team ranked number one in the world.SAinfo reporter and South African Football Association
This article is only available to GBA Prime Members Liquid-applied flashings are caulk-like materials that are spread with a trowel. Once cured, these products form a waterproof, airtight, vapor-permeable layer that can prevent air leakage through sheathing seams or protect rough window sills from water entry.After I wrote my recent article on liquid-applied flashings, I decided to conduct a backyard test of these products. Like the backyard tape test that I conducted in 2012, this test wouldn’t be scientific (because I lack the financial resources required for a scientific test). Although the results would never be published in a peer-reviewed journal, I hoped that noodling around in my back yard might nevertheless reveal some useful information.My test consisted of the following steps:I tested seven products, each with a distinctive color: The back side of the test rig, showing the frame on which the plywood is mounted. Building a plywood test box I decided to use a sheet of 1/2-inch CDX plywood as my test rig. I reinforced the plywood sheet on the back with four 8-foot 2x4s, 16 inches on center. Once the plywood was screwed to the 2×4 frame, I cut seven 4-foot long kerfs right through the plywood, so that the plywood was effectively divided into 8 pieces (each 1 ft. by 4 ft.). Because the plywood had been secured to the 2×4 frame with drywall screws, the test rig maintained its 4’x8’ shape. The front side of the test rig. The 2×4 curb was omitted from bottom of the assembly to allow for drainage. Note the vertical saw kerfs that divide the plywood into 8 sections. Each plywood seam will be sealed with a different brand of liquid-applied flashing. The last step was to install a 2×4 curb on the top side of the test rig. The curb was installed on three sides; the fourth side had… Start Free Trial Already a member?

I believe in the players we have, the players that are at Tottenham today.”I respect the opinion of people who say we need to change something, in or out. But if it is my decision, I am going to stick with players because I know they have the quality. It’s only to unlock some situations that are going on in their minds. We have great quality to achieve the things we are expected to.”
It’s been a pretty good 24 hours for the dunk. There was, of course, Zach LaVine winning the NBA Dunk Contest in spectacular fashion on Saturday night. There was also Kentucky center Willie Cauley-Stein saying he’s “just going to start dunking on people” and former Michigan wide receiver Devin Funchess showing off his athleticism. There’s also this: Iowa State guard Deonte Burton throwing down an awesome windmill dunk while sporting Timberland boots. That’s just ridiculous. Iowa State (18-6, 8-4 Big 12) is set to play Oklahoma State (17-8, 7-6 Big 12) on Wednesday at 9 p.m. E.T. The game will be televised on ESPNU.

According to the police, the two were working in the night shift. While Novil was deployed at the main gate, Jugal was working on the third floor of the hospital. Though it has not been confirmed by the officials on what matter the two fought. Ultimately the issue heated up and resulted in Novil stabbing Kishore. According to sources, the formal complaint was registered in the city police at around 8 am.

Ohio State freshman running back J.K. Dobbins (2) runs the ball in the third quarter of the game against Michigan on Nov. 25 in Ann Arbor. Ohio State won 31-20. Credit: Jack Westerheide | Photo EditorANN ARBOR, Mich. — Before No. 9 Ohio State (10-2, 8-1 Big Ten) beat its rival Michigan (8-4, 5-4 Big Ten) 31-20 Saturday, its path to the College Football Playoff looked clear. If it wins and every team left expected to win does its job, Ohio State likely slips in as the first two-loss team to reach the playoff.That path looked all the more clear after No. 2 Miami lost 24-14 to Pittsburgh Friday, all but eliminating the possibility of two ACC teams landing spots.But four hours after the Buckeyes beat the Wolverines, their playoff chances took a major blow when No. 1 Alabama lost 26-14 to No. 6 Auburn, moving Auburn into the SEC championship game against No. 7 Georgia. What makes this such a complicated situation for Ohio State is that it was in the exact same situation as Alabama last year, and it reached the playoff. It was a one-loss, non-conference champion that was picked ahead of two-loss Big Ten champion Penn State. The CFP committee deemed its wins against three highly ranked opponents in Oklahoma, Michigan and Wisconsin to be enough to make up for the lack of a conference title. This could also harken back to the 2015 Ohio State team, which was kept out of the playoff after one loss to Michigan State.The season is not completely out of Ohio State’s hands. The Buckeyes have to win the Big Ten championship against undefeated No. 5 Wisconsin to even be considered in the playoff. Assuming Ohio State does that, it still requires either a tough decision by the selection committee or an upset in the Big 12 championship game.The committee could decide to include Ohio State in ahead of Alabama should the Buckeyes knock off the Badgers. Alabama has defeated only two currently ranked opponents — No. 18 LSU and No. 14 Mississippi State, which just lost to Ole Miss — and an Ohio State win over Wisconsin would give the Buckeyes three wins over currently ranked opponents. There also is a chance No. 12 TCU defeats No. 4 Oklahoma in the Big 12 championship game, which at this point would likely not be enough for the Horned Frogs to leap the Buckeyes. A loss late in the season without a conference title could doom a Sooners team that came into Ohio Stadium and beat the Buckeyes 31-16 earlier this season. With conference championships going on next week, the two guaranteed spots belong to the winners of the SEC, between Georgia and Auburn, and the ACC, between No. 3 Clemson and Miami. The remaining two spots will belong to either the Big Ten champion, Oklahoma or Alabama. Ohio State’s playoff hopes have grown dimmer, but they are not gone.
