Fifa Medical Centre for SA

first_imgTamara O’ReillyThe only Fifa-accredited medical centre on the continent specialising in health care for football players is at the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg.Wits University’s Centre for Exercise Science and Sports Medicine is one of only six medical centres in the world that has won the approval of the world’s football governing body. The other such centres are based in Switzerland, USA, Japan, New Zealand and Germany.Selection processAll Fifa Medical Centres of Excellence have been carefully selected, based on a comprehensive application process that proves their clinical, educational and research expertise.Some of the requirements by Fifa was that centres such as these be multidisciplinary and have significant experience in the management and care of football teams during training and competition as well as responsibility for the overall health care of football players. The centre was previously accredited by the South African Football Association as a Football Centre of Specialisation, assisting with the assessment of young football players.Education and researchRegarding research, the centre is conducting research into sport medicine on a continuous basis to ensure they keep abreast of sport medical trends as well as set their own.“We are an educational institution so naturally we pay a lot of attention to advancing the sport through education,” says Dmitri Constantinou, director of the facility. “For example, Fifa requires that all doping control officers also be registered medical doctors so a Fifa-accredited course will take place soon for our local doctors. In fact, until the 2010 Soccer World Cup there will be several courses taking place here that deal with the medical aspects of the sport.”FacilitiesThe centre comprises rehabilitation rooms which are fitted with the necessary equipment to treat injuries, ample facilities for relaxation like swimming pool and squash courts, wheelchair access, and the expertise of dieticians, professors and medical doctors.If a player requires a surgical procedure, he will be referred to the university’s private academic hospital – the Donald Gordon Medical Centre or alternately to any Medi-Clinic Hospital.Several rooms in the student residence on the premises have also been reserved to accommodate players overnight or longer if needed.In a letter addressed to the director of the facility, Fifa President Sepp Blatter said, “We are very pleased to recommend your institution to the football community as an elite centre with a history of commitment to football and the respective expertise when specialised services are required.”Constantinou says the accreditation is valid for the next five years but until that time it opens many doors for the facility to continue their research and build a name as a world-class sports medicine facility.Useful Links:FifaWits University Official 2010 World Cup Website Donald Gordon Medical Centrelast_img read more

eDiscovery: Friction Between Legal and IT Groups Jeopardize Response

first_imgA new survey by Recommind finds that there is a mini-war brewing between IT and Legal coalitions.  The results show that communication between the two groups has waned over the last year.  Now, only a little more than half say that they feel that they have “good” or “very good” relationships with the other group, a drop of 13 percent from last year.When asked if they’ve found that they’ve been working more closely with the other group this year over the previous one, only 27 percent answered affirmatively, a drop from 37 percent of the previous year.This is disturbing because issues like e-discovery, risk management and compliance are complex are be best solved when there is  close cooperation between the two groups.When asked which groups are very involved in e-discovery purchase decisions, 78 percent said that IT was very involved, but only 33 percent thought that Legal was involved.   In the previous year’s survey 48 percent thought that legal had a strong involvement in purchasing decisions.  That’s a fairly big drop.Interestingly, when IT members were asked if they considered e-discovery a “high priority”, only 26 percent thought so.  In the previous year, 40 percent had agreed.  Again a big drop in attitudes.And when asked if the two groups ever even talk, 72% of respondents said their IT and Legal groups meet once a quarter or less; 52% meet once a year or less and 23% never meet at all.When asked about goals, the IT group responded that their main goal for eDiscovery projects is to “execute as quickly as possible”, while not too unexpectedly, legal had a primary goal of  “complying with federal regulations and court orders”.How to interpret these results?  It would seem that IT is taking a lead in preparing the infrastructure for responding to an e-discovery request, but the fact that IT doesn’t see e-discovery as that high of a priority can lead to some cause for concern.  And the fact that there is a lack of clear input from Legal about what e-discovery features and capabilities to implement seems to be a recipe for disaster.Because things like compliance and e-discovery have significant overlap between IT and Legal groups,  Gartner  last year recommended that companies consider adding legal support managers, a liaison position between IT and legal, to help smooth out the handling of policies, schedules and execution between the two groups.   75 percent of the companies have not yet created this kind of position.last_img read more

10 months agoLiverpool legend Babb: Lovren was Klopp’s weakest link

first_imgAbout the authorAnsser SadiqShare the loveHave your say Liverpool legend Babb: Lovren was Klopp’s weakest linkby Ansser Sadiq10 months agoSend to a friendShare the lovePhil Babb believes Liverpool till have a weakness in their rearguard.Despite an impressive record of goals conceded this season, the Reds were breached twice as they lost 2-1 to Manchester City at the Etihad.And Reds legend Babb believes Dejan Lovren is the problem player within the team.The former Liverpool defender told Sky Sports: “To say that Aguero specifically targeted him, I am not so sure.”But, if you look across that back line, you would probably say the weakest link is Dejan Lovren – and that proved to be [the case], pretty much last night.”He had a sketchy game at best. Some of his distribution was poor, [the] decision making.”Even towards the end, when Liverpool were pushing forwards and (Virgil) Van Dijk was up, he (Lovren) was playing straight balls into the box – and you would probably say you need to angle them, so there is a better chance for the second ball and the knock down.”But what do you say about Sergio Aguero? He is genuinely a world-class striker and a great asset for City.” last_img read more

Buckeye brainteasers 5 questions for Ohio State vs Akron

3. What should you expect from redshirt senior quarterback Joe Bauserman? At a Tuesday press conference, first-year coach Luke Fickell announced that Bauserman would probably take the first snap of Saturday’s game against Akron.For his career at OSU, Bauserman is 25-for-47 passing for 320 yards, two touchdown passes and one interception.At the Buckeyes’ Aug. 20 jersey scrimmage, Bauserman demonstrated great accuracy and the ability to lead receivers with his throws. Assuming he has time to throw, you can expect more of the same from the fifth-year senior on Saturday.At a Tuesday press conference, senior tackle J.B. Shugarts’ spoke highly of Bauserman’s athleticism and scrambling.“(Bauserman) is a little more of a pocket passer,” Shugarts said, “but he’s a lot more athletic then people give him credit for when he gets out of the pocket.” 1. How will the suspensions of junior running back Jordan Hall, sophomore defensive back Corey Brown and junior defensive back Travis Howard impact Saturday’s game against Akron?OSU announced Thursday that Hall, Brown and Howard were suspended for the Akron game for receiving impermissible benefits of $300 or less each in total at a charity event they attended earlier in the year.Similar to the suspensions of DeVier Posey, Mike Adams, Dan Herron and Solomon Thomas for the first five games of the 2011 season, the latest round of Buckeyes’ suspensions significantly hurts the team.The latest OSU depth chart listed Howard as the starter at left corner back while Hall was slated to start as the Buckeyes’ punt and kick returner, as well as tailback.For starters, don’t be surprised if Akron sophomore quarterback Clayton Moore tests Howard’s replacement, sophomore Dominic Clarke, early and often.Perhaps more significant is the loss of Hall, who led all Buckeyes’ kick returners in 2010 while averaging 27.9 yards per return. He was also the only OSU kick returner to record a touchdown last season.As a rusher, Hall recorded modest numbers last season, gaining 169 yards on 37 attempts and scoring two touchdowns. However modest those statistics are, taking the team’s current No. 1 rusher out of the equation on Saturday is a negative development and limits the OSU ground game considerably. 4. Will Akron beat OSU for the first time in 117 years? In a word, no.Akron’s lone win against the Buckeyes — or any current member of the Big Ten for that matter — occurred at the Ohio State Fair on Sept. 5, 1894. The Zips defeated OSU, 12-6, that day.Don’t expect Akron to claim win No. 2 this Saturday.The Zips posted a 1-11 record in 2010 and it’s safe to say that 2011 is a rebuilding year for the program. Additionally, Ohio Stadium is a tough place to lay the groundwork for a rebuilding season.Thirteen returning starters on offense and defense should help Akron avoid an embarrassing result, but an upset win is unlikely.5. Assuming the Buckeyes win, is there reason to be concerned if they don’t win big? “Whether I’m playing against my brother or I’m playing against someone I don’t like, to me, it’s gotta be competitive,” Fickell said at an Aug. 20 press conference. “If I can beat them, I want to beat them as bad as I can.”Based on that quote, you can bet that no one wants OSU to beat Akron in convincing fashion more than the team itself.The Buckeyes are champing at the bit to take the field and play ball. You can’t quantify or measure the different emotions felt by the players in the OSU locker room during this off-season, but it isn’t hard to imagine that they’ll be looking to upend any obstacles in their path — that includes Akron.I like the Buckeyes to win convincingly, but if Akron does make a game of it, keep the number of suspended players in mind, as well as the significance of those players. The suspensions that were announced Thursday are especially relevant as they could have possibly forced some last minute alterations to Saturday’s game plan.Suspensions aside, the Buckeyes will take care of business on Saturday.Game prediction — OSU 38 – 10 Akron 2. How will the Ohio State offensive line fare in protecting the Buckeyes’ quarterbacks against Akron?Ohio State coaches have already said that the team lacks depth at the offensive line position. That, coupled with the fact that the offensive line allowed 12 sacks in the April 23 spring game and the Aug. 20 jersey scrimmage combined, makes the position an area of concern. Akron collected only 17 sacks during the 2010 season, however.An unsuccessful showing by the offensive line against Akron would be cause for additional concern because OSU will face stronger and faster defensive opposition in almost every other game this season. Protecting the OSU quarterbacking tandem of redshirt senior Joe Bauserman and true freshman Braxton Miller shouldn’t be an overwhelming task for this weekend, though. read more
