Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas expects Gareth Bale and Michael Dawson to be out for at least a week with hamstring injuries.Dawson limped off after an awkward fall in the first half in the 3-0 win over Fulham, while Bale pulled up late on and was also substituted.“Both Bale and Dawson have suffered muscle injuries to their hamstrings,” Villas-Boas confirmed.“One looks more serious than the other but both are controllable. Bale may be out for one or two weeks, Dawson maybe a little bit less.”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 Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebook
49ers on Wednesday: Where have all the defensive interceptions gone? “That’s usually where quarterbacks earn their money,” coach Kyle Shanahan said of third-down prowess. “… He was on tonight throwing and got to the right spots. When it wasn’t there, he made plays with his legs.”It also effectively served notice to skeptics who questioned Garoppolo’s worth on a team that’s largely won via its rushing attack and dominant defense. Garoppolo shrugged off such talk, that it’s merely “just people” outside the locker room doubting him.Garoppolo’s career-best game unfolded only after tight end George Kittle injured his knee on their first play, and only after the Cardinals (3-5-1) took a 7-0 lead on their opening possession. Once Garoppolo’s fourth touchdown pass found Dante Pettis, it seemed safe to celebrate, which Pettis did with Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” dance move.A THRILLER from @JimmyG_10 to @dmainy_13 👀#GoNiners pic.twitter.com/4U9W2zMHIV— San Francisco 49ers (@49ers) November 1, 2019 How much Jimmy G-to-Kittle is too much Jimmy G-to-Kittle? With a little health and stability, Jimmie Ward finally showing 49ers, NFL what he can do Hall of Fame QB who once tormented 49ers now sees them as the NFC’s top playoff seed FIRST LOOK: Hip-hop icon E-40 teams with 49ers on new music video GLENDALE, Ariz. — Yep, the 49ers are undefeated halfway through the season, and Jimmy Garoppolo reminded everyone Thursday night he can be a sensational reason why.Garoppolo’s career-high four touchdown passes were just enough to lift the 49ers to a 28-25 win over the Arizona Cardinals.His knack for converting third-down plays, meanwhile, truly saved them in a spooky fourth quarter on Halloween night. That lifted the Cardinals’ spell on the 49ers, who lost their past eight meetings and last won in Arizona in 2013.The 49ers (8-0) converted 11-of-17 third-down plays, and Garoppolo’s ability to move the chains with third-down completions to Emmanuel Sanders and Ross Dwelley killed the final minutes. Although Kittle overcame his knee’s apparent hyperextension, the 49ers lost starting linebacker Kwon Alexander to a pectoral injury in the fourth quarter. Alexander will undergo an MRI exam Friday.Now 5-0 on the road this season, the 49ers next play at home against the Seattle Seahawks on Monday night, Nov. 11.Here are the highs and lows — or tricks and treats, in the spirit of Halloween — of the Niners’ win.STUDS QB JIMMY GAROPPOLO: Touchdown passes three consecutive drives put the 49ers ahead 21-7 at halftime. Touchdown pass No. 4 came after he went through his progression, saw Pettis beat Patrick Peterson and threw to the back, right of the end zone. On the scoring strike to Kittle, Garoppolo also looked off the defense, then found Kittle open across the middle. Touchdowns Nos. 2 and 3 were to Kendrick Bourne (7 yards) and Emmanul Sanders (fourth-and-goal from the 1).“He makes some pretty gutsy throws out there, doesn’t he? Goodness gracious,” Kittle said.Garoppolo’s best pass: a 22-yard completion right into Sanders’ hands, before Sanders could barely look for the ball that moved them to Arizona’s 24-yard line in the third quarter. Garoppolo’s most clutch passes: third-down completions on the game-ending drive, capped by an 11-yarder to Ross Dwelley on third-and-9. Garoppolo was playing in Arizona for the first time since his starting debut in the New England Patriots 2016 season opener, which he won in comeback fashion.Garoppolo called this win “really fun” and had a “great time out there.” But he wouldn’t go so far to say it was was best football game ever. Instead, he downplayed it as: “Same as every other game. It wasn’t anything different for me out there. Just more opportunities, different opportunities and guys were making plays with the ball in their hands.”TE GEORGE KITTLE: He overcame a first-play leg injury, and just before the first quarter ended, he scored the game-tying touchdown on a 30-yard catch-and-run. That score came on third-and-3; Garoppolo was 15-of-15 this season when targeting Kittle on third down until the second series, when a third-and-2 pass was broken up by safety Budda Baker. He finished with six catches for 73 yards, as knee and an ankle injury kept him out of the closing minutes.George Kittle: UNSTOPPABLE 😱 @gkittle46 | #GoNiners📺: #SFvsAZ on @NFLNetwork | @NFLonFOX | @PrimeVideoHow to watch: https://t.co/I6INVckndX pic.twitter.com/RL3TnEyqMz— NFL (@NFL) November 1, 2019“I’m great, babe. Always,” Kittle said. “In football, stuff happens and you decide to go back out there or you don’t. I tried to give my team everything I could, and in the fourth quarter, I couldn’t go anymore, and I’m happy to have a guy like Ross Dwelley step up. I can’t say enough about Ross and the plays he made. I’m so happy for him.“Once something happens, you try to push through as much as you can. But if it comes to the point I feel I’m a liability for the and I’m not the best man for the job, I talked to my coach about it, and we made a decision. I definitely thought Dwelley was definitely more mobile than I was in the fourth quarter.”Kittle’s 30-yard touchdown catch was impressive in that not only did he beat Baker off the line but he fended him off again at the 9 en route to the end zone. “He made a couple good plays and I just had to remind him I was going to be here all night,” Kittle said.WR EMMANUEL SANDERS: In his encore, Sanders caught more passes (seven) than any other 49ers wide receiver had in a game this season caught. He finished with 112 yards, and he had a 1-yard, fourth-and-goal touchdown catch to close the first half for the 21-7 lead. He also drew a pass-interference penalty that brought the 49ers to the 5-yard line just before halftime. Meanwhile, Marquise Goodwin is a healthy scratch with the 49ers instead opting to play Sanders and four other wide receivers.Jimmy Garoppolo is building tremendous chemistry with Emmanuel Sanders! #49ers pic.twitter.com/MwXwOV1B82— ourSF49ers (@OSf49ers) November 1, 2019Related Articles TE ROSS DWELLEY: Filling in for Kittle, he didn’t just make a heroic catch on the final third-down conversion to kill the clock but it’s what he did after the catch: gain a couple extra yards so his 11-yard reception would succeed on third-and-9.Shanahan said: “Dwelley’s been huge for us this last month. We were messing with Dwelley all week, saying the No. 1 goal in this game was to win but the No. 2 goal was to improve Dwelley’s yards per catch average, because I think he was at 0 or 1, and to do that on the last play was pretty cool. I know the guys were pumped up.”“He’s kind of like ‘Baby George,’ ” guard Mike Person said. “He got the (yards) he needed today.”Dwelley’s reaction to the nickname: “Who said that? That’s a freakin’ heck of a compliment. I’m fine with that.”RB MATT BREIDA: Sore ankle? Of course he’d overcome it like he did so often last season, but, wow, Breida looked as quick as ever on a 31-yard run in the second quarter. He had 65 yards on six carries at halftime, then finished with 78 yards on 15 total carries.PUNT COVERAGE: Tarvarius Moore and Raheem Mostert combined to tackle Cardinals punt returner Pharoh Cooper for a 1-yard loss at the Arizona 9. The Cardinals totaled 17 yards on three punt returns.DUDSHEALTH SCARES: Alexander’s fourth-quarter departure with a chest injury is most concerning. That Kittle leg injury was a frightening way to start, but he returned to action the following series. Defensive tackle Arik Armstead missed time in the first quarter as he felt he had something stuck in his throat.CB EMMANUEL MOSELEY: His roughest start saw him allow his man, Andy Isabella, go for an 88-yard touchdown in the closing minutes, and the Cardinals’ ensuing two-point conversion pulled them within 28-25.Showing off that 4.31 speed 🚨@AndyIsabella5 goes 88 YARDS for the @AZCardinals TOUCHDOWN! #RedSea @K1📺: #SFvsAZ on @NFLNetwork | @NFLonFOX | @PrimeVideoHow to watch: https://t.co/I6INVckndX pic.twitter.com/KTDSF1Q9qr— NFL (@NFL) November 1, 2019OPENING DEFENSE: Opponents came out running at the 49ers once again, and Kenyan Drake busted past D.J. Jones and Fred Warner on the opening snap for a 36-yard gain. The 49ers also struggled in opening drives in their previous two road games, at Los Angeles (touchdown run) and Washington (missed field goal). Three-and-outs were forced in the 49ers’ first two games at Tampa Bay and Cincinnati. Drake’s touchdown run came on a sprint to the right pylon.WARNER’S HANDS: The 49ers linebacker, after letting Drake slip past him on the opening snap, dropped a potential interception later in the half. It would have been his first career interception in 24 games.Robert Saleh and Fred Warner played Murray perfectly… except for the important part. pic.twitter.com/mQJ2BIKuFY— Dieter Kurtenbach (@dieter) November 1, 2019DEEBO SAMUEL’S HANDS: The 49ers’ rookie dropped a potential, 13-yard touchdown pass after getting wide open in the end zone just before halftime. He did, however, show grit later and finished with four total catches for 40 yards.THIRD-DOWN PENALTY: Dee Ford kept alive the Cardinals’ opening drive with an illegal, horse-collar tackle of Kyler Murray. Ford rallied, however, and had one of the 49ers’ three sacks on Murray; Dre Greenlaw and DeForest Buckner had the others.CARDS QB KYLER MURRAY: Sure, he can be elusive, but his favorite target was to sail a pass well out of bounds as the 49ers applied pressure. Murray was 17-of-24 for 241 yards, with 88 coming on that touchdown to Isabella. Murray had five carries for 34 yards and got sacked three times but escaped others. “He’s like a little squirrel back there, running everywhere,” DeForsest Buckner said.Murray was the No. 1 overall draft pick — taken one spot ahead of the 49ers’ Nick Bosa, who had an uncharacteristically quiet night (one tackle).SEASON PASS DIGITAL OFFERIf you have not already, we strongly encourage you to sign up for a digital subscription, which gives you access to all content on the Mercury News and East Bay Times websites.

18 September 2007Environment Minister Marthinus van Schalkwyk has announced a R500-million project, funded by the National Energy Efficiency Agency (NEEA), to make South Africa’s national parks more energy efficient over the next three years.Speaking at the launch of National Parks Week at the Kruger National Park’s Skukuza rest camp on Monday, Van Schalkwyk said the investment would ensure that all South African National Parks (SANParks) facilities were “exemplary energy efficient showcases for local and international visitors”.He said the energy efficiency project would complement the R574.9-million allocated to SANParks by the National Treasury for infrastructure upgrades at all its camps over the next three years.“The NEEA will provide ‘top-up’ funding for each upgrade to buildings and other facilities within SANParks, to finance the specific technology improvements that will ensure a sustainable and energy-efficient compliant installation,” Van Schalkwyk said.As an example, he said that if SANParks’ current plan and budget made provision for conventional electric geysers in accommodation units, the NEEA would fund the additional amount required to install energy efficient solar water heaters instead.Likewise, where conventional lighting systems have been specified, the NEEA will fund the difference between the current inefficient technologies and compact fluorescent lamps.NEEA operations manager Barry Bredenkamp said the upgrades would deliver twin benefits of actual energy savings for the camps, while showing the rest of the world that South Africa was pursuing the path of energy efficiency.“The NEEA is delighted to be assisting SANParks improve the energy economy of it’s lodges both through financial support and the agency’s expertise, which will demonstrate to millions of energy conscious visitors that SA is committed to combating climate change,” he said.Furthermore, black economic empowerment (BEE) companies in the energy industry will be used to carry out energy audits and implement energy efficient components, as part of the NEEA’s capacity building drive.Additional jobs will also be created through the training of local energy advisors in areas close to the relevant parks. Preliminary upgrades and comprehensive energy auditing will begin before the end of 2007, and implementation will carry on until the beginning of 2010.“The value of promoting these facilities as energy efficient and sustainable, will also go a long way in marketing the country as an environmentally-conscious country and will furthermore contribute to off-setting the carbon footprint that will possibly arise as a result of activities leading up to 2010,” Van Schalkwyk said.SAinfo reporter Want to use this article in your publication or on your website?See: Using SAinfo material

According to most green advocates, green buildings must be durable. Alex Wilson memorably summed up the case for durability in an Environmental Building News article titled “Durability: A Key Component of Green Building.”There are a few problems with the durability thesis, however: some durable buildings aren’t green, and many green buildings aren’t durable. In fact, the more one looks into the issue, the harder it is to find a link between durability and greenness.One easy way to disprove any generalization is to provide counterexamples. As it turns out, plenty of durable buildings aren’t green, including:On the other hand, plenty of green buildings aren’t durable:One might perceive a trend in these examples: when it comes to greenness, size matters more than durability.Most of us are trying to reduce our carbon footprint and our environmental impact, and some of us worry that our American lifestyle is unsustainable. In the back of our minds, however, we hope that a greener future won’t require us to give up our current luxuries. That’s why we rarely look to the Third World for architectural models.Most traditional shelters are relatively small, use local materials, require very low inputs of energy, and cause little if any environmental damage when the shelter is abandoned. For those of us who came of age during the 1960s, the landmark book documenting indigenous homes was Shelter, the 1973 classic by Lloyd Kahn. As the examples provided in Shelter made clear, to live lightly on the planet, there is no need to build a durable home.For most of the world’s population, building a house starts with scrounging local materials — stones, mud, cardboard, bamboo poles, discarded pieces of sheet metal, and, if one can afford it, a little cement.

Panaji: The Goa police on Thursday began implementing the Supreme Court committee directions on tackling deaths due to traffic violations. The Supreme Court Committee on Road Safety had recently issued directions to suspend driving licences, of offending drivers, for at least three months for committing traffic violations such as over-speeding, jumping red light, carrying overload in goods carriage, carrying persons in goods carriage, drunken driving/riding and using mobile phone while driving/riding, among others.In order to ensure strict compliance of these directions, Goa Police apart from issuing/compounding challan for these traffic violation, will be confiscating the licence of the defaulter under due acknowledgement and then forward it to the concerned State Assistant Director of Transport recommending suspension of the same, said a senior Goa traffic police officer.
