(PHOTO/AGENCIES)ENTEBBE – After losing both of their games at the 2019 COSAFA Cup in South Africa, the Uganda Cranes squad have arrived back in the country on Thursday, June 6th.The team of 20 players and 8 officials touched down at Entebbe Airport in the afternoon.Upon arrival, Vipers striker Dan Sserunkuma who scored Uganda’s only goal in COSAFA spoke to the media and assured the team had a great experience in South Africa.Sserunkuma (R) scored Uganda’s only goal in South Africa.“It was a great experience because the side featured many new players in the National team setup, said Sserunkuma.“All the teams we played were much organised and we learnt a lot in those two games.“The playing surface was very different to the ones we are used to. Next time shall play better so that we get good results.Uganda lost 3-2 on penalties after a 0-0 draw in normal time, on Saturday. The loss saw them fall into the Plate competition where they would take on South Africa the following Tuesday.Against the Bafafa Bafana, it was a similar outcome, drawing 1-1 in regular time before losing 4-2 in the shout-outs.After a goalless first half, Dan Sserunkuma temporary put Uganda ahead at the start of the second before South Africa equalized with 17 minutes to play.In both games, the Cranes missed several opportunities to win, something head coach Abdallah Mubiru attributed to lack of luck.“We were unlucky to bow out in the two matches played, said Mubiru.“The matches played were promising although we still have to perfect use of the ball in the final third.Mubiru speaks to the media on the COSAFA Cranes arrival.The team that featured in South Africa is highly anticipated to be the one that takes on South Sudan in the upcoming CHAN qualifiers.Players:Goalkeepers: Charles Lukwago (KCCA FC) and James Alitho (URA FC)Defenders: Paul Patrick Mbowa (URA FC), Paul Willa (Police), Mustafa Kizza (KCCA FC), John Revita (Express FC), Isaac Isinde(Kirinya-Jinja S.S), Hassan Musana (KCCA FC), Musitafa Mujuzi (Proline FC).Midfielders: Bright Anukani (Proline), Muzamiru Mutyaba (KCCA FC), Shafik Kuchi Kagimu (URA FC), Nicholas Kasozi (KCCA FC), Allan Kayiwa (Tooro United FC), Paul Mucureezi (Mbarara City FC), Michael Birungi Komunda (Express)Forwards: Daniel Isiagi Opolot (Al Nasir, Egypt), Juma Balinya (Police FC), Nelson Senkatuka (right Stars FC), Dan Muzeyi Serunkuuma (Vipers SC)Team Officials:–Leader of Delegation: Richard Ochom–Head Coach: Abdallah Mubiru–Assistant Coach: Charles Livingstone Mbabazi–FUFA Delegate (Kampala Region): Robert Serunjogi–Team Doctor: Emmanuel Nakabago–Equipment manager: Frank Bumpejje–Media Officer: Lawrence BwanikaComments

But he’s made one thing abundantly clear over the course of his 1,000 career regular season games: he isn’t afraid to shoot.Burns celebrated his milestone evening with a game-winning goal, as he beat Ducks goalie Chad Johnson with 9:39 left in the third period to break a tie and …
9 January 2008The Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR), in partnership with the Department of Science and Technology, has launched a state-of-art micro-manufacturing laboratory in Pretoria, the first platform dedicated to this technology area in South Africa.The department said in a statement in December that the new micro-manufacturing laboratory would focus on microsystems and microfluidics, while helping to build capacity and develop new skills.“The CSIR laboratory currently offers three doctoral studentships and one internship for capacity and skills development in this new exciting area.”Equipment already commissioned at the laboratory includes a Comsol Multiphysics software package to help model and simulate physical systems; a Resonetics Excimer laser machining station to machine microcomponents and microfeatures into components; and a Zeiss laser scanning confocal microscope to measure the physical characteristics of the micro-manufactured parts.Micro-manufacturingMicro-manufacturing or micro-fabrication is the collective term for the technologies used to fabricate components on a micrometre-sized scale with feature sizes in the 1-1 000 um range.As an important emerging technology area, micro-manufacturing has been defined by the World Technology Evaluation Centre as an enabling, disruptive, transforming and strategic technology that bridges the gap between the nano and macro worlds.“With micro factories, products can be manufactured where needed and the technology is available to more people,” the department said. “The technology can also bring about reduced capital investment, space and energy costs, and increased portability and productivity.”The launch of the laboratory follows the completion of the micro-manufacturing strategy of South Africa, which was facilitated by the department’s Advanced Manufacturing Technology Strategy (AMTS) implementation unit in consultation with industry and relevant international experts and with key contributions from the CSIR, the Central University of Technology, the Stellenbosch University and the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University.‘First of its kind’CSIR senior researcher Kevin Land says that while pockets of dedicated micro-manufacturing do exist in the country, the laboratory is the first in South Africa to provide a platform dedicated to micro-manufacturing.“We will initially focus our research on micro fuel cells and microfluidics,” Land says.The focus of microfluidics will be on developing modelling, manufacturing and testing capabilities for microfluidic devices, while the immediate goal will be research on manufacturing critical components such as valves, pumps, channels, mixers and separators.These components will then be merged to form sub-systems, which will be linked directly to applications that have been identified in the biomedical field. The group is working closely with biomedical groups in the design and development of these systems.The microsystems focus is on the development of a micro fuel cell as a technology demonstrator to build skills and capacity in the microsystems domain. The micro fuel cell will be used for portable electronic devices such as cellphones and notebook computers.SAinfo reporter Want to use this article in your publication or on your website?See: Using SAinfo material
jolie odell In a breathtakingly risky move, a former Russian police officer has taken to the Internet in full uniform to detail the corruption, danger, and brutality of his line of work.In an open video address to Prime Minister Vladmir Putin, Alexei Dymovsky says, “Maybe you don’t know about us, about simple cops, who live and work and love their work. I’m ready to tell you everything. I’m not scared of my own death.” How much does Dymovsky have to fear? The answer might surprise those of us who are accustomed to the relative freedoms of self-expression.Over the past week, Dymovsky’s videos have gotten more than a million views altogether and have created quite an uproar in Russia. In the videos, he speaks with an air of desperation, frustration, and resignation rarely seem on camera. He speaks of the ten years he spent serving and protecting his country.Dymovsky served in the Russian army from 1996 until 1998. After that, he worked as a district commissioner of the city police in the Amur region. In 2004, he was transferred to the city of Novorossiysk police department, where he eventually advanced to the post of senior security officer and oversaw crimes related to drug trafficking.“We are working as hard as we can with all our souls,” Dymovsky says. After referencing losing two wives, who refused to put up with his work, and problems with “relationships with the bosses,” Dymovsky says, “I want to talk about it now.” He speaks of being denied leave of absence or medical treatment for illness, about police taking bribes and about pervasive corruption. “I am not afraid,” he says, “I am telling my name… But I cannot stand detecting the nonexistent crimes, imprisoning people who are not guilty. I can’t stand it anymore.”Take a look at one of the videos Dymovsky has posted so far: Tags:#web#YouTube A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… These videos bear significant political impact, but they also speak to the importance of the Internet in acting as our generation’s soapbox. Any wronged person has an almost infinite capacity to express, persuade and convince. Currently, a source at the Russian Interior Ministry’s internal security department has confirmed to at least one publication that representatives of several human rights organization actively support Dymovsky.The officers mentioned in Dymovsky’s reports have filed libel suits against him, and the Russian interior minister has said his office is investigating the former police officer’s claims.

Every filmmaker and videographer should have a “nifty fifty” 50mm lens at their disposal. Here are five reasons to add one to your toolkit.Cover image by Wang An Qi.Today’s digital filmmaking world is increasingly becoming point-and-shoot and run-and-gun. Zoom lenses have become the norm for those who feel that they don’t have time to change lenses often and set shots carefully.However, if you know how to use one well, a “nifty fifty” 50mm lens can be a very powerful tool for capturing sharp, cinematic footage in any situation. It may even save your butt one day — and buying one won’t break the bank.Here are the five main reasons you should own a “nifty fifty” 50mm lens.1. The New StandardImage by mad_aurel.In a great article over at The Atlantic, Allain Daigle recently argued that the 50mm has forever changed filmmaking, as it is often seen as “the most objective” and best approximation of human vision. I highly recommend reading the full article on the history of the 50mm through its production and mechanics, but needless to say, in theory, under the right circumstances, it absolutely communicates a perspective most closely tied with how we view the world around us.2. Sharp and FastImage by Mehaniq.As a fixed lens (as opposed to a zoom, which can change focal lengths), nifty fifties are very fast and sharp alternatives to higher f-stop zoom options. You can usually find 50mm lenses starting at f/2.8 or lower, which is already a sharp, fast, and shallow option for cinematic footage in just about every situation.3. Low Light HelpImage by ASB63.By the same token, when you’re shooting at a low f-stop, a wide-open lens can be surprisingly helpful for getting the most out of low light situations. That being said, you don’t always want to be razor thin with your depth of field, but if you’re in a pinch and need to capture quality information in low light, your nifty fifty can be a lifesaver.4. Crop FriendlyImage by Mehaniq.In today’s market, you very well could end up changing cameras pretty often (or working with other filmmakers using different cameras). While full frame is still the ideal for most filmmakers and videographers, working on crop sensor cameras can be common. However, with a 50mm (instead of, say, an 85mm prime), you’re not in a terrible bind when shooting on a 1.75x crop factor. It’ll be a tighter macro, but you can still position yourself better than other lens offerings.5. CostImage by Sewoky.Perhaps the most appealing aspect of a nifty fifty 50mm lens is the price. Fixed lenses are usually cheaper than their zoom counterparts due to fewer moving parts and mechanisms. However, many high-end prime lenses get pricey quickly.However, due to their size (and depending on their speed), you can just about always find a nifty fifty for anywhere from a few hundred dollars to less than one hundred (used).Shop around, look at some options at different f-stops, but rest assured that you’re going to get a powerful, fast, sharp, and helpful lens if you go with the nifty fifty.For more camera and lens resources, check out these filmmaking articles.The Cameras and Lenses Behind 2018’s Oscar-Nominated FilmsWorking with Vintage Lenses on Modern CamerasHow Camera Lenses are Made6 Online Resources for Renting Camera GearVideo Tutorial: The Best Lenses for Gimbal Cinematography
