Women’s downhillIn the women’s event, Great Britain’s Tracy Moseley celebrated her thirtieth birthday in style by capturing the title by finishing more than six seconds faster than second placed Emmeline Ragot in 4:20.15 seconds. “The course was great. It really suited me – high-geared and flat-out. I like that kind of riding!” Minnaar was not the only South African to excel. Burry Stander, from Port Shepstone on the KwaZulu-Natal south coast, turned in an outstanding performance in the men’s cross country to finish third overall and first in the under-23 category. ‘Sleepy Hollow’Known as “Sleepy Hollow”, Pietermaritzburg, when it comes to cycling, is anything but sleepy. It has hosted many of the world’s leading road cyclists in recent years in the World’s View Challenge. Now, it has enjoyed success in the Mountain Bike World Cup and, coming up in August, it will host the UCI BMX World Cup. ‘The course was great’“It was fantastic,” enthused Osl after her win. “The course was great. The long uphills hit the body constantly. 14 April 2009 “It was totally wicked!” reckoned Moseley. “I thought the course would never end. It was tough up towards the top – really technical. In the final, Graves made a blistering start and raced a superb race to relegate Prokop to second, with Lucas in third and Rinderknecht finishng fourth. Speaking about his victory on his home track, Minnaar said: “Man, I got great support today! All the guys up on the top of the course, and all the way down, they gave me the support I wanted. It was good to have so many home fans here, and they weren’t going to accept a second place,” he smiled. Andrew Neethling also flew the South African flag high, finishing in fourteenth place. In the women’s event, Anneke Beerten of the Netherlands showed why she is ranked number one in the world by taking victory. Great Britain’s Fionn Griffiths was second, with the Czech Republic duo of Romana Labounkova and Jana Horakova finishing third and fourth respectively. A former world championship silver medal winner, Graves faced former two-time world champion Michael Prokop of the Czech Republic, current world champion Rafael Alvarez de Lara Lucas of Spain, and 2008 World Championship silver medallist Roger Rinderknecht in the final, all three of whom had been beaten on the way to the title-deciding race. On lap six of the brutal seven-lap race Hermida managed to open a gap on Absalon and Stander. The Spaniard, despite the heat and very tough climbs, powered through the final lap to take victory, with Absalon finishing 30 seconds behind him and Stander a further 22 seconds later to huge cheers. “It was great to go the front so early from the start, as last year I was having problems with my start, but today I hit the front and looked back and no one was coming. I felt comfortable, but kept pushing.” Would you like to use this article in your publication or on your website? See: Using SAinfo material In 2010, Pietermaritzburg will host the UCI BMX World Championships and the following year it will again be a BMX World Cup venue. ‘The support was incredible!’Racing in South Africa against the world’s best proved to be a memorable experience for him. “The support was incredible!” exclaimed Stander. “The crowds made so much noise for me, I couldn’t hear myself think! Sabrina Jonnier claimed third to give France two riders on the podium, while South Africa’s Joanna Petterson finished in tenth place, with fellow South African Anke Martin ending twelfth. Minnaar then flashed down the course in an astonishing 3:43.44, exhibiting his trademark silky smooth riding style, while loudly supported by the partisan home crowd all the way along the route. Men’s cross countryIn Saturday’s cross country, Burry Stander gave the local crowd, many of them displaying “Go Burry!” placards, plenty to cheer. Throughout the race his position on the course could be gauged by the yelling of the crowd. Four-minute barrierIn qualifying, four minutes had proved to be the barrier that separated the top guns from the rest, but in the final 28 men went under that time. As the time approached for Minnaar and the rest of the leading riders to make their runs, so a large number of spectators began to make their way to the finish. A field that included Olympic champion Sabine Spitz of Germany and world champion Margarita Fullana had no answer to the diminutive Austrian as she continued to build on her lead throughout the race. By the end she was over two minutes clear of the second placed Russian Irina Kalentieva, who ended 39 seconds ahead of third placed Lene Byberg of Norway. Minnaar had qualified second fastest for the final behind Australia’s Mick Hannah. It was, he said after his victory, a blessing in disguise. Minnaar explained that it meant he had to ride an offensive race in the finals instead of defending his time. Women’s cross countryVictory in the women’s cross country went to Austria’s Elisabeth Osl who dominated the race, leading from start to finish, to win a World Cup event for the first time in her career. He was part of a group that set the early pace. It included current world champion Christoph Sauser of Switzerland, with whom he had recently team in the Absa Cape Epic. Others in the group were four-time world champion and Olympic gold medallist Julian Absalon, world number five Jose Antonio Hermida, and Swiss under-23 star Nino Schurter. ‘I’ve got my confidence back’A relieved and ecstatic Graves said afterwards: “I started thinking that I was incapable of winning the big races. But now, after today, I am relieved. I’ve got my confidence back. “It’s amazing to race a World Cup in my own country and to have such huge support. Thank you to everyone who came out to support me and to support mountain biking in South Africa.” Just past the halfway mark, the two Swiss riders, Sauser and Schurter fell off the pace, which left Stander, Hermida, and Absalon pushing the pace. Four-crossThe four-cross events also produced excellent racing. The men’s title went the way of Jared Graves on one of the longest four-cross tracks in the world. Enthusiastic crowds, way in excess of the organisers’ expectations, ensured the opening round of the UCI Mountain Bike World Cup in Pietermaritzburg was a huge success, and local favourite and world downhill champion Greg Minnaar thrilled the fans by racing to a sensational victory in the final event of the weekend. New Zealander Cameron Cole set a time of 3:53.20 that stood as the mark to beat for a while, but Gee Atherton and Sam Hill both bettered it and Minnaar’s Santa Cruz Sydnicate team-mate Steve Peat took the time to beat below three minutes and 50 seconds with a run of 3:49.25. Additional reporting: MTB World Cup SA A very popular winnerThat left only Hannah with a chance of beating the South African star. He, too, flew down the course, but his time splits, shown on the big-screen television at the finish suggested he wouldn’t beat Minnaar. He didn’t, clocking 3:45.69, which left Minnaar a very popular winner by just over two seconds. The riders set off in inverse order from the times they set in qualifying. That meant Minnaar would be the second last man off. With a big field of 82 men taking part, it gave the crowd, many armed with vuvuzelas, plenty of time to take in the action from different viewpoints. It also allowed the excitement to build. “I would’ve preferred the whole course to be like that. None of us like pedalling! We’re downhillers! But it’s the best thirtieth birthday present a girl could wish for.” Men’s downhillIn mountain biking, the most adrenaline-pumping of all the events is the downhill, which features technical challenges, plenty of jumps, and speed, speed, speed. With Minnaar having won his third overall World Cup title in 2008, the Pietermaritzburg supporters expected him to rise to the challenge posed by the course in the Ferncliff Forests and he did.
Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest February results for U.S. pork and beef exports were well above year-ago levels, with pork exports posting the strongest February volume on record, according to statistics released by USDA and compiled by USMEF.Pork exports reached 197,025 metric tons (mt) in February, up 15% year-over-year, with value up 17% to $486.7 million. For the first two months of 2017, exports totaled 399,692 mt, up 18%, with value increasing 22% to $995.3 million.February exports accounted for 27.6% of total pork production and 22.9% for muscle cuts only, up from 23.8% and 20%, respectively, last year. January-February ratios were also significantly higher at 26.8% and 22.2%, compared to 23% and 19.3% in the first two months of 2016. Export value per hog slaughtered averaged $51.94 in February, up 18% year-over-year, while the January-February average was up 20% to $51.05.Beef exports totaled 90,417 mt in February, up 9% year-over-year, with value up 16% to $508.5 million. Through February, beef exports were up 13% in volume (186,905 mt) and 17% in value ($1.02 billion).February exports accounted for 12.6% of total beef production and 10.1% for muscle cuts only, which was steady with last year. January-February ratios were also fairly steady at 12.4% and 9.8%, respectively. Export value per head of fed slaughter averaged $276.96 in February, up 13% from a year ago, while the January-February average was up 10% to $266.34 per head.“With trade deficits being a hot topic of conversation, especially with countries such as Mexico, China and Japan, it’s important to highlight the sectors in which U.S. products are competitive throughout the world and exports are thriving,” said USMEF President and CEO Philip Seng. “The red meat sector is certainly in that category, as exports have helped fuel growth in the U.S. industry and, in turn, larger U.S. production has opened further export opportunities and generated positive returns for the entire supply chain.” Pork exports strong to Western Hemisphere and North Asian marketsMexico was once again the pacesetter for February pork exports, with volume up 22% to 64,990 mt and value increasing 28% to $116 million. This pushed the two-month totals for Mexico to 137,396 mt (up 27%) valued at $244.7 million (up 39%). Mexico’s strong demand is reflected not only in increased buying from the U.S., but also in relatively high domestic hog prices, as per capita consumption of pork continues to grow. Strong demand from Mexico helped move prices for U.S. heavy bone-in hams higher in 2017 — up an average of 4% year-over-year.For Japan, the leading value market for U.S. pork, February exports increased 14% to 32,178 mt, valued at $130.4 million (up 18%). For January-February, exports to Japan were up 10% in volume (63,755 mt) and 14% in value ($256.1 million). Chilled pork exports to Japan increased 7% through February to 34,682 metric tons.Other highlights for U.S. pork included:China/Hong Kong continued to take large volumes of U.S. pork variety meats in February, offsetting the slowdown in pork muscle cuts, putting the combined February total at 42,881 mt (up 5% year-over-year), valued at $83.2 million (up 12%). Two-month totals were up 10% in volume (80,893 mt) and 15% in value ($159.3 million). China’s hog prices dropped below year-ago levels in February and have continued to drift lower, but China/Hong Kong’s total January-February imports were still up 35% from last year’s record pace at 532,600 mt.Pork exports to South Korea, which were slow in the first half of 2016 before gaining momentum later in the year, totaled 14,649 mt (up 26%) in February, valued at $38.2 million (up 29%). Through February, volume increased 29% to 30,722 mt while value improved 39% to $83.3 million. Korea’s hog prices have increased an average of 8% this year even as production has been growing, which is indicative of strong demand.Led by a year-over-year doubling of exports to Colombia and Chile and solid growth in Honduras, exports to Central and South America were up 45% in volume (27,022 mt) through February while value increased 42% to $61.8 million.January-February exports to the Dominican Republic were also well above last year’s pace at 5,279 mt (up 28%) valued at $11.8 million (up 34%). Chilled beef to Japan, Korea and Taiwan continues to drive export growthJapan continued to solidify its position as the leading volume and value market for U.S. beef, with February exports climbing 48% from a year ago in volume (23,789 mt) and 55% in value ($134.3 million). Through February, exports to Japan were up 41% in volume (46,276 mt) and 44% in value ($259.6 million). This included a 60% increase in chilled beef volume to 19,404 mt. Japanese import data showed that U.S. beef overtook Australian beef in the first two months of the year, with U.S. market share climbing to 45.6% while Australia’s dropped to 44%.Strong momentum continued for U.S. beef in Korea, where February exports increased 11% to 13,093 mt valued at $86 million (up 26%). This pushed the two-month totals up 23% in volume (28,287 mt) and 31% in value ($177.6 million). Chilled exports through February were up 95% to 5,384 mt.In Taiwan, February exports jumped 33% from a year ago to 2,886 mt, while value increased 26% to $25.3 million. Through February, exports were up 28% in volume (6,477 mt) and 25% in value ($55.1 million). U.S. beef holds 70% of the chilled beef market in Taiwan, the highest of any Asian market. Through February, chilled exports to Taiwan increased 12% to 2,479 mt.Other highlights for U.S. beef included:Exports within North America are off to a solid start in 2017, with January-February exports to Mexico increasing 14% from a year ago in volume (36,235 mt) and 3% in value ($147.4 million). Exports to Canada are showing signs of a rebound, with volume up 11% to 19,446 mt and value up 18% to $123.5 million.Beef exports to two key South American markets increased significantly in value through February, with exports to Chile up 22% year-over-year to $8.9 million and exports to Peru up 68% to $4.3 million. The increase in Chile was achieved despite a 16% decline in volume (1,417 mt) while volume to Peru was up 16% to 1,130 mt.A rebound in the Philippines and continued growth in Vietnam pushed January-February beef exports to the ASEAN region up 33% in volume (4,774 mt) and 19% in value ($27.3 million). Exports to Indonesia, which set a value record of $39.4 million last year, are off to a slow start in 2017 with value through February down 48% to $3.5 million.Strong growth to most Asian markets helped offset a slowdown to Hong Kong, where January-February volume was down 21% to 16,131 mt, valued at $104.7 million (down 12%). Lamb exports still slumpingExports of U.S. lamb continued the recent trend in which muscle cut exports were solidly above year-ago levels, but total exports fell due to lower shipments of variety meat. February muscle cut exports were 123 mt (up 15%) valued at just under $900,000 (up 38%), pushing the two-month totals up 30% in volume (317 mt) and 33% in value ($1.9 million).Lower variety meat totals pulled total February lamb and lamb variety meat exports down 41% in volume (487 mt) while value held relatively steady at $1.3 million. January-February exports were also down 41% in volume (1,060 mt) and fell 4% in value ($2.7 million). Early 2017 highlights for U.S. lamb include solid year-over-year growth in muscle cut exports to Mexico and the Caribbean.Complete export results for U.S. beef, pork and lamb are available from USMEF’s statistics Web page.
Launching a sharp attack on the ruling NDA government at the Centre, Rashtriya Janata Dal leader Tejashwi Yadav said here on Tuesday that the 2019 elections would be a fight between Mandal, Ambedkar and Gandhi on the one hand and Nathuram Godse and M.S. Golwalkar on the other.Painting a grim picture of freedoms and social justice under the present government, he said at an event on the role of youth in contemporary politics that only Bahujans and the discourse of social justice can challenge the Narendra Modi government.The Leader of the Opposition in the Bihar Assembly took digs at both State Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and Prime Minister Narendra Modi in his 18-minute address, exhorting the youth not to be afraid and defend the “Constitution, country and reservations”.“If I had known chacha (uncle) was such a coward, we would not have gone for the Grand Alliance in the last Bihar Assembly polls. My father was never afraid. He had arrested [Lal Krishna] Advani ji during the Rath Yatra. He fought for reservations. He always fought like a lion,” he said, unfavourably comparing Mr. Kumar to his father and RJD supremo Lalu Prasad. “My father never went back on his ideology. He never compromised with Manuvaad and communalism.”Taking a dig at the Prime Minister’s reported statement that selling pakodas was also a form of employment, Mr. Yadav said, “Modi ji says the youth should sell pakodas. We respect the youth selling pakodas, but even that requires some money. If not ₹15 lakh, please make a start by giving people ₹1-2 lakh, so that they can sell pakodas.” He then added, “But if all people start selling pakodas, who will buy the pakodas?”The interactive session organised by Forum of Students and Teachers of Delhi University, Jawaharlal Nehru University and Jamia Millia Islamia saw the presence of some academics on stage, including DU professor and RJD Rajya Sabha MP Manoj Jha, JNU political scientist M.N. Thakur and DU political scientist N. Sukumar.Asked in the question and answer session who the RJD’s candidates for the 2019 Lok Sabha polls would be, Mr. Yadav said it was too early to comment on this, adding that the present priority was a united front to take on the government.
Indian External Affairs Minister S.M. Krishna headed to Myanmar on Monday after reaffirming India’s commitment to economic and strategic cooperation with its Mayanmar’s new nominally civilian government.Krishna is the first high-level Indian official to visit Myanmar since an elected government replaced a military junta in March.India and Myanmar have developed deep economic and security ties over the past decade. India has said it believes talking quietly is a better approach than sanctions in dealing with Myanmar’s military-backed government, which has been widely criticized for human rights abuses.On Monday, Krishna did not reply directly to a question about whether he would meet opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi during his three-day visit. “I don’t know if I will get a chance to interact with other leaders during my brief stay in Yangon,” he said.India is also wary of China’s growing influence in Myanmar, and is in competition with its large regional rival for access to the country’s large natural gas resources.India and Myanmar have widened cooperation between their security forces since the mid-1990s, with both countries fighting armed insurgencies along their shared border.India says separatist rebels in its northeastern states often slip across the 1,000-mile-long border and take shelter in jungle bases inside Myanmar.Krishna, who will meet Myanmar President Thein Sein, said he will explore ways to increase trade and investment in oil and gas projects, hydroelectric power and railways.Two-way trade, which has doubled since 2006, reached $1.57 billion in 2010. The two countries will also review progress on a $110 million project to improve transport links to India’s remote northeastern states, Krishna said.advertisementThe ambitious Kaladan project includes the building of roads, a waterway on the Kaladan River and development of Sittwe port in western Myanmar, which will provide an opening to the sea for India’s landlocked northeastern states.- With AP inputsFor more news on India, click here.For more news on Business, click here.For more news on Movies, click here.For more news on Sports, click here.
The Atlanta Hawks had the best record in the Eastern Conference, but the Cleveland Cavaliers are favored to beat them and advance to the NBA Finals. The disregard for the Hawks is palpable—and misguided. The regular season counts for something—a lot, actually. And here is why they will send LeBron James and the Cavs fishing for the summer.Home City AdvantageAtlanta is party central for the entire NBA. The restaurants, lounges, night clubs, adult entertainment spots… they draw NBA players out of their hotel rooms as if by a trance. The late-night carousing wears on a team’s legs and concentration. In an evenly matched series like this one, that energy edge very well could be a difference-maker. And even if the Cavs decide to stay in their room, they won’t be watching Being Mary Jane. The “entertainment” can—and will—come to them.Best Team AdvantageThe Hawks’ unselfish style of play has been the hallmark of the best season in franchise history. Part of the reason they are disregarded is because they do not have a superstar player. But they have four all-stars, who, if they play to their regular-season stature, far exceed the Cavs, who do not have an injured Kevin Love. Talent wins, and the Hawks have more of it.
Clifton Leaf has been named editor-in-chief of Fortune. Formerly deputy editor, Leaf replaces Alan Murray, who will take on the title of president, while continuing in his role as chief content officer for the entirety of Time Inc. Adam Lashinsky has also been promoted to executive editor. Keith R. Hernandez has joined Bleacher Report as SVP of brand strategy. Hernandez was president of Slate Media until November.

Colloff’s departure follows the resignation of EIC Brian Sweany, who voluntarily left following the magazine’s sale to Paul Hobby. The New Yorker poetry editor Paul Muldoon will step down in the fall. He will be replaced by Kevin Young on November 1. Colloff’s role marks a major shift — not just for her career, but for all three entities affected by her employment. It’s a first-of-its-kind arrangement for The New York Times Magazine and ProPublica, which will share Colloff’s reporting between the two media entities. Christina Amoroso has been named executive features editor of Cosmopolitan.com. She joins from the New York Post, where she worked as deputy features editor. Pamela Colloff has left her post as executive editor of Texas Monthly, after twenty years and an entire career spent at the magazine. She joins The New York Times Magazine and ProPublica as a writer-at-large and senior reporter, respectively. New York Magazine has promoted Rebecca Ramsey to fashion director, from her role as style director of the magazine’s fashion vertical, the Cut. Ramsey replaces Amy Larocca, who assumes the title of editor-at-large.

Microsoft Cheapskates don’t use Microsoft Office. Or, at least, they don’t pay for it: Microsoft offers pretty decent freebie versions of Word, Excel and PowerPoint that live in your browser.And let’s not forget the various free alternatives, such as Google Docs, LibreOffice and WPS Office.All that being said, some people have a particular need for Microsoft’s suite — and if you’re one of them, you might as well try to score a deal. Like this one: Today only, Amazon is offering a $50 gift card when you purchase a 12-month Office 365 Home subscription for $99.99. That’s for a digital download.See it at AmazonThis version supports up to six users, and they don’t all have to be in your house. Each person gets a 1-terabyte OneDrive cloud account, which is definitely one of the bigger value-adds here.You also get Publisher, which is one of the few remaining desktop-publishing tools, and Outlook, one of the few remaining full-featured mail clients.The regular $100 annual price bugs me. I’d really like to see Microsoft drop it to $50 — but that would be unparalleled, so we have to settle for sales like these.Your thoughts?Blue Yeti USB microphone: $70 (save $49) Blue A good microphone is essential for everything from podcasting to Skype calling, and Blue makes some of the best consumer mics out there.

Price elsewhere (including Amazon) for this color: $119.
