first_imgThe world’s most expensive player then set alarm bells ringing when he hobbled out of training on Tuesday in full view of the cameras.However, he returned to the training pitch 48 hours ahead of the clash in Saint Petersburg, raising hopes he will feature.Even before his latest setback, there were doubts over Neymar’s fitness heading into the World Cup after a three-month layoff.The Switzerland clash was his first competitive game for nearly four months after a broken bone in his right foot ended his club season with Paris Saint-Germain in February.To the frustration of many in the French capital, Neymar returned home for much of his recovery process with the intention of being fully fit for the World Cup.– Neymar still the key –However, questions remain whether he is seriously lacking match practice.Brazil looked to their talisman time and again in the final stages in Rostov-on-Don, but he failed to find the final pass or finish to unlock a well-organised Switzerland defence.Instead, it was Philippe Coutinho who got Brazil’s campaign off to a flying start with a wonderful long range strike to open the scoring.In contrast to Neymar, Coutinho ended the season in sensational form for Barcelona after sealing his dream move from Liverpool.Off to a flyer: Philippe Coutinho scored Brazil’s first goal of the World Cup © AFP / Jewel SAMADShould Neymar not be fit, Coutinho could be moved into his role on the left of a front three with Tite bolstering his midfield.However, Coutinho insists Neymar remains the key figure in Brazil’s pursuit of World Cup glory.“Neymar is one of the best players in the world. Of course having him in our side is a big plus for us,” said Coutinho.“He is so important. He is always creating the play, creating space.”Brazil were not just unhappy with the treatment meted out to Neymar, but also Switzerland’s equaliser when the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) system failed to rule out Steven Zuber’s equaliser for a slight push on Miranda. The Brazilian federation even took their complaints to FIFA.Needing a break and to relieve the pressure with a win, Brazil could hardly have picked better opposition in Los Ticos, who have only beaten Brazil once in 10 meetings way back in 1960.Costa Rica shocked England, Italy and Uruguay to reach the quarter-finals four years ago, but are even more in need of the points after losing 1-0 to Serbia in their opening game.They also lost heavily to Belgium and England in warm-up friendlies, but captain Bryan Ruiz believes they can follow Switzerland’s example to cause another massive upset.“Switzerland pressed them in midfield and that’s what you need to do because everybody knows that Brazil are best from midfield going forward,” said the Sporting Lisbon attacker.“We need to win the ball back quickly and counter-attack quickly.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Neymar is a fitness doubt for Brazil’s clash with Costa Rica © AFP / Jewel SAMADSAINT PETERSBURG, Russian Federation, Jun 21 – A battered and bruised Neymar will aim to get Brazil’s World Cup campaign back on track here Friday as the pre-tournament favourites seek to re-assert their title credentials with victory over Costa Rica.Neymar was given a rough ride in Brazil’s disappointing 1-1 draw with Switzerland on Sunday, fouled 10 times during the match, the most for any player in a single World Cup game for 20 years.last_img read more

first_imgThe announcement of a “third form of intercellular communication” hit scientists like TNT: tunneling nanotubules, that is.  Science Now reported that “Scientists have found what appears to be a whole new way for immune cells to communicate with one another: long, narrow tubes that enable them to connect and exchange molecules.”  These subway tunnels between cells pass molecules quickly from cell to cell, including calcium ions that trigger actions in the cell, and possibly antigens.  If so, this “may help explain how immune responses can be initiated so rapidly.”This system presupposes other systems in place.  If one cell extends a TNT, the other cell has to be prepared to receive it.  When a package arrives, the other cell needs to know what to do with it.  One must also ask how or why, before this system existed, any cell in a community of cells would even venture to send a message outside itself.  Here we have another method of communication (see also 09/14/2005 entry) that allows cells, long thought to be rugged individualists, to be cooperative members of society.(Visited 11 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

first_imgDubbed NEXT STOP SOUTH AFRICA campaign, the delegation consists of senior officials from the departments of Environmental Affairs and Tourism, Trade and Industry and is collaborating with the South African Foreign Mission in Oman, while South African Airways is sponsoring certain aspects of travel and promotions. They are being accompanied by members of the International Marketing Council of South Africa (IMC), a private sector organization responsible for the territory’s country branding initiative.The visit confirms the growing importance of the Gulf Region for South African business and investment and the strength of bilateral relations with key countries in the region.South Africa and the Sultanate of Oman established diplomatic relations in 1995.  A number of bilateral agreements have subsequently been signed including one on military co-operation in 2002.The South African delegation will be in the Gulf Region from 13 to 23 February during which time the delegation will also visit Qatar, Saudi Arabia and both Dubai and Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates.On the agenda are meetings and discussions with local business communities as well as workshops on tourism, trade and investment opportunities in South Africa.These events would also be utilized to allay fears about the state of crime in the country and elaborate on strategies championed by government’s security establishments that are successfully combating crime.“The Middle East is becoming an important trade zone for South Africa. It holds great potential for South Africa as an export market, and serves as a potential strategic source of foreign direct investment. Bilateral trade with the Middle East has grown significantly since 1994. Because of South Africa’s energy imports, it has a large trade deficit with the region” says Ms Bulelwa Seti, Chief Director for Tourism Support at the Department of Environmental Affairs and Tourism, who will be leading the delegation.The region also has profound cultural and religious resonance with thousands of South Africans who adhere to Islam. The cultural, religious, historical and strategic affinity between this region and northern part of Africa itself makes it important in the context of Africa’s renewal and the New Partnership for Africa’s Development (NEPAD).South African exports to Oman had a total value of (South African Rand) R387 million in 2006 and consisted mainly of chemicals, machinery and mechanical appliances. Over the same period imports from Oman totaled just over R1, 3 billion – including petroleum products and electronic equipment.“There has been significant tourism investments flowing into South Africa from Middle East investors on the acquisition of hospitality properties while there are significant new opportunities opening up in the leisure and hospitality industries as well as in the construction and engineering sectors” says Patience Molokoza, Director, International Tourism Relations at the Department of Environmental Affairs and Tourism.The 2010 FIFA Soccer World Cup will focus global attention on South Africa as a preferred destination for tourism, trade and investment. Thus the delegation will inform the Saudi business community and government about new opportunities opening up in South Africa and reaffirm the fact that the country is an entry point into a large regional market of more than 180 million people in the Southern African Development Community (SADC) region.The ASGISA initiative (Accelerated and Shared Growth Initiative) focuses on South Africa’s competitive edge in a number of key industries such as tourism, business process outsourcing, international call-centres, information and communication technology, agribusiness and synthetic fuels.South Africa is currently in the early stage of a period significant economic growth and expansion. Thus this mission would seek to encourage investors from Saudi Arabia to grasp the investment opportunities that are currently available to them that will enable them to reap the benefits in the years to come.Issued by Meropa Communications for the Brand South Africa Mission in the Gulf Region, 13-23 February 2007.Enquiries: Pamela Dlamini: 011 772 1000last_img read more
