The former champions lifted some of the gloom enveloping their camp with a 2-1 win over derby rivals CAPS United last Sunday, a result which saw them crawl out of the relegation zone, but they remain perilously close to trouble and any setback against Rhinos could see Dembare back in the red. In other matchday 30 encounters scheduled for the weekend,...

He certainly seized the opportunity, and may have done enough to prove he belongs with the team's other key attackers. Deployed as an inverted winger out on the right, it was one of Chawapiwa's trademark driving runs which created Zimbabwe's shock first-minute opener to deflate the visitors at the National Sports...

In the spirit of positive thinking, for the benefit of all the citizens of the Planet - I propose the "Green Africa" project. What is the Green Africa project? The irrigating the whole of Africa from the great rivers. Such a project was realized and was viable (during the communist regime) in Romania: from the Danube River - some huge pumps sent water hundreds of kilometers away, through millions of pipes (pipelines) across the entire Romanian Plain.  They were obtained huge crops of wheat, crops which were sufficient to feed the population of all Europe. It's not an exaggeration! (Unfortunately, after the fall of the communist regime, some criminals destroyed the irrigation system, stole all the pipes and sold them to the Steel Plant in Galati, where they were melted into stole all the pipes and sold them to the Steel Plant in Galati, where they were melted into blast furnaces and turned into ingots, metal sheets, wire, etc. This was possible because there was no guard for the irrig...
