(PHOTO/File)CHAN 2020 Qualifiers-Second Round (Return Leg)Uganda vs BurundiStarTimes Stadium, LugogoSaturday, 19-10-2019 @4pmLUGOGO – The Uganda Cranes CHAN team continued with their preparations for the second leg of their qualifier against Burundi this coming weekend, with a double training session on Tuesday.This was their third day of training for the Cranes having kicked off preps on Sunday morning.All the 26 players that were summoned last week took part including Krizestom Ntambi and Allan Kayiwa who have just returned from a 1-0 friendly win over Ethiopia on Sunday.Speaking after the morning session, head coach Abdallah Mubiru thanked God that the preparations were going on smoothly.“Thank God the training went smoothly, noted Mubiru.“We now have everyone in training after the arrival of Krizestom Ntambi and Allan Kayiwa who were with the senior side.“I am pleased that all players are working so hard and the truth is that they are making our job of selecting who plays on Saturday difficult.”Uganda holds a monstrous advantage going into the game on Saturday following their 3-0 victory in the first leg played in Bujumbura-Burundi last month.Despite the healthy caution, Mubiru has cautioned his players not to get complacent as he expects Burundi to give their all on Saturday.“We are trying to avoid a situation where the players get complacent and think the tie is already won, continued Mubiru.“This is going to be an entirely different game from the one we played in Bujumbura. We expect them (Burundi) to come all guns blazing knowing they need to overcome the deficit.“That means we have to remain focus and not to get complacent so as by the end of 90 minutes, we are still holding our advantage.”Uganda is attempting to reach a fifth consecutive CHAN tournament.After losing to Tanzania in the second round of qualification and in the process, failing to reach the first edition of the finals in 2009, the Cranes have not failed to seal a spot in any of the last four finals (2011, 2014, 2016 and 2018).To reach the last edition in Morocco, Uganda defeated South Sudan 5-1 on aggregate in the first round of qualifiers before hanging on to overcome Rwanda 3-2 in the second round.For Burundi, they are attempting to reach a second CHAN finals’ tournament having done so in South Africa 2014 where they were eliminated in the group stages after finishing third in Group D.To reach the second round, Uganda took care of Somali while Burundi eliminated South Sudan.The list of players training ahead of the gameGoalkeepersCharles Lukwago (KCCA), James Alitho (URA), Joel Mutakubwa (Kyetume)DefendersPaul Willa (Police), Ashraf Mandela (URA), Arafat Galiwango (Police), John Revita (KCCA), Mustapha Kizza (KCCA), Halid Lwaliwa (Vipers), Paul Mbowa (URA), Mustafa Mujuzi (Proline)MidfieldersNicholas Kasozi (KCCA), Said Kyeyune (URA), Yusuf Ssozi (Police), David Owori (SC Villa), Kirizestom Ntambi (Wakiso Giants), Allan Okello (KCCA), Shafique Kagimu (URA), Vianne Ssekajjugo (Wakiso Giants), Karim Watambala (Vipers SC), Bright Anukani (Proline), Ibrahim Orit (Mbarara City)StrikersFahad Bayo (Vipers), Dan Sserunkuma (Vipers), Mike Mutyaba (KCCA), Allan Kayiwa (Vipers SC).Comments Tags: abdallah mubiruAllan KayiwaCHAN 2020Krizestom NtambitopUganda Craneslast_img read more

Breaking: HSE confirms outbreak of Mumps in Donegal and North-West

first_imgAn outbreak of mumps in the North-West has led doctors to warn parents to keep children with the condition at home.The HSE has confirmed to Donegal Daily that there have been 13 confirmed cases of Mumps in the North West since the start of March.These have been mainly in the South Donegal and Sligo town area. The number of cases has decreased somewhat in the past week. The outbreak follows a separate outbreak of Measles in Donegal in recent weeks.A spokesperson for the HSE said all children and young adults should have two MMR doses which protects against Mumps, Measles and Rubella. Protection for Rubella is important for women in the childbearing years.Dr Anthony Breslin said “The recent cases of Measles and Mumps in the North West demonstrate what can happen when MMR vaccine rates fall”.Mumps is an acute viral infection that is spread from person to person. It is a potentially serious disease for children and young adults and is very common in young children who are not vaccinated against it. Mumps usually occurs in school-aged children, teenagers or young adults, although older people may also contract the disease.Symptoms of mumps include fever, headache, malaise and swollen, tender salivary glands (usually the parotid gland which is located just below the front of the ear). Mumps often gives the appearance of swollen cheeks or jaw. Symptoms of mumps typically begin to appear 14 to 25 days (usually 15-18 days) after exposure.Approximately 20% of infected individuals will have no symptoms. Some may have only non-specific or primarily respiratory symptoms (particularly in children <5 years of age). Symptoms tend to decrease after one week and have usually resolved after 10 days. There is no specific treatment for mumps apart from relieving the symptoms.Mumps is spread from person to person by coughing or sneezing and by direct contact with saliva or discharges from the nose and throat of infected individuals.People infected with mumps may spread the infection to others, even when they do not have any symptoms. People with mumps are most infectious from 2 days before to 5 days after onset of symptoms.Complications of mumps may occur and can include testicular inflammation, ovarian inflammation, meningitis, pancreatitis and rarely encephalitis (brain inflammation) or deafness. Although testicular inflammation occurs in up to 40% of postpubertal males, fortunately sterility is rare.Anyone who develops mumps should stay at home for the five days after disease onset to prevent spreading the infection to others. If your child develops the symptoms of mumps please contact your GP (please ring your GP first).Further information on Mumps can be found on the HSE Website at the link below.https://www.hse.ie/eng/health/az/m/mumps/Breaking: HSE confirms outbreak of Mumps in Donegal and North-West was last modified: March 25th, 2019 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:donegalMeaslesMumpsOutbreaklast_img read more

first_imgImage Courtesy: Brødrene AaNorwegian ferry builder Brødrene Aa, Hyen, has received an order for three high-speed carbon fiber catamaran ferries intended for the Chinese market. As informed, the company signed a contract with Zhongshan Hong Kong Passenger Shipping Co-op Co., Ltd.The construction of the vessels is expected to begin at the shipyard in Hyen in November 2017. To be completed and delivered by June 2019, the ferries will operate between Hong Kong and Guangzhou, according to Brødrene Aa.With a capacity of 300 passengers, two of the vessels will feature a length of 42 meters and have a maximum operating speed of 40 knots. The third vessel will measure 42 meters in length as well, however, it will have a capacity of 230 passengers and a maximum operating speed of 37 knots.“This contract represents an important milestone in our efforts to penetrate the Chinese market,” Tor Øyvin Aa, CEO of Brødrene Aa, said.In 2015, Chinese Chu Kong Shipping made an equity investment in Brødrene Aa. The objective was to establish a joint composite manufacturing facility in China as well as to provide market opportunities for completed vessels from Brødrene Aa’s yard in Norway.”With vessels operating long hours at speeds of 40 knots you really capitalize on the benefits of carbon fiber constructions. Lighter vessels render lower fuel consumption and reduced emissions. This contract will allow us to demonstrate the benefits our vessels bring to the markets in China and other Asian markets as well,” Brødrene Aa’s CEO added.last_img read more
