Modular is the market leader in providing powerful information management solutions to meet the needs of both open pit and underground mining operations worldwide. Avoca Resources announced that it commenced placing cemented tailings (paste) into underground stopes at its Trident mine, Western Australia’s third largest underground gold mine, following the successful construction and commissioning of its paste plant. All too often, a mining agreement that is vital to a country’s development and that will boost economic opportunity and job creation is an occasion for vilification by NGOs. Ventilation has always been a concern in underground mines.  For many years, there was very little understanding of how ventilation could be used to remove harmful contaminants from the air, or how to control airflow and isolate worked-out areas.
Today, ventilation schemes typically consist of a complex network of open and sealed areas that provide fresh air to working faces while pushing dusty and gaseous air out of the mine. In addition to the new 3-day cure for Tekseal®, Minova also unveiled new packaging that allows bulk handling of its standard-setting Tekseal® products. The new Minova bulk bags, constructed of a reinforced nylon material with a heavy-duty plastic liner, are tear- and water-resistant. The company has developed comprehensive documentation for the 3-day cure for Tekseal® and new bulk packaging systems.
TM, designed to enhance mine site safety.  The system was developed after extensive research by Caterpillar showed that 70% of haulage truck accidents at mine sites occur during initial machine startup and low speed movement.
The system has been purpose-built to integrate with Cat large mining trucks-models 785, 789, 793 and 797-and is intended to aid an operator when starting to move a truck and during low speed maneuvering.
Using a combination of short range radars, medium range radars and four cameras, the system monitors and shows the operator the areas immediately around the truck. Unlike basic camera systems, the Cat Integrated Object Detection System provides the operator with multiple types of warnings, both audible and visual. The system is wholly contained on the machine and does not require any off-board infrastructure. Of course radar detects both moving and still objects, and camera views are available at all times.
The Cat Integrated Object Detection System will be available for many current models of large mining trucks in early 2010. One-armed US surfer Bethany Hamilton was a promising junior aged 13 when a huge tiger shark mauled her.
Hamilton, whose left arm was bitten off in a shark attack in 2003, entered the event at Tavarua as a wildcard rated little chance of making an impact. But the 26-year-old from Hawaii reached the final four with an incredible giant-killing run. She defeated Australia’s world number one Tyler Wright in the second round, then beat six-time world champion Stephanie Gilmore in the third. It is the sixth time Hamilton, who had a child last year, has competed on the elite tour, with her previous best a ninth place in 2010. Hamilton was a promising junior aged 13 when a huge tiger shark mauled her, losing 60 percent of her blood after it ripped off her arm. But she refused to give up her dream of becoming a pro surfer and was back on a board less than a month after the near-fatal attack. She embarked on intensive physical therapy and strengthening exercises to adjust her balance and movements to compensate for the missing arm. The only concession made to her handicap is a handle on the surfboard, which allows her to duck-dive under approaching waves when she paddles out.
She spoke after making the quarter-finals in Fiji about what it meant for her to compete among the best.

Rio’s city government said it spent 52 million reais (US$14 million) on the initiative, designed to reward high performing students, adults who work with people with disabilities and public sector workers who contribute to promoting the Games on social media.
Less than a third of the 2.5 million tickets available for the Paralympic Games, which runs from Sept 7 to 18, have been sold. For Rio’s public servants there will be 64,524 pairs of tickets available for the Paralympics and 4,000 pairs for the Olympics. To secure the tickets, workers have until June 13 to submit photos and videos that can be used to promote the Games on social media. Another 177,000 pairs of Paralympic tickets are being offered to public school children, who will also be allocated 19,000 pairs of Olympic tickets. The tickets will be distributed to students from first to ninth grade who secure top marks in the first half of the year. In addition, the government is giving away 8,500 pairs of Paralympic tickets and 500 pairs of Olympic tickets for those who work with people with disabilities. The announcement came as officials outlined measures taken to improve accessibility for people with disabilities to the city’s public transport system. Rio’s transport secretary, Rafael Picciani, said the first phase of a new light rail service linking the city centre to the revitalised port district will begin operating on June 5.
He said that all Olympic transport projects – which also include a new subway line and bus routes, will be accessible to people with special needs. KUCHING: SMK Pesantren Abdul Taib Mahmud (PATM) swept four of the five contested events to emerge overall champions of the state-level Silat Seni Youth Tournament yesterday. They outscored 14 other secondary schools after good performances in the Solo Putera, Jurus Silat Puteri, Local Music and Seni Tari Puteri.
Meanwhile, SK Matu Baru were crowned as the primary school champions after winning two out of four contested categories. Prizes were given out by Tupong assemblyman Fazzrudin Abdul Rahman in a ceremony organised together with the Perguruan Seni Silat Betawi, Riverside Shopping Complex and Sara Urus Harta Sdn Bhd yesterday. Fazzrudin, who is also Rumpun Silat Sarawak (RSS) deputy president, urged participant to sustain their involvement in the martial arts field. Over 100 participants from 32 primary and secondary schools from all over Sarawak competed in the tournament. Also present at the closing ceremony were RSS president Hanief Ali and Sara Urus Harta Sdn Bhd general manager Allan Poh. Meanwhile world squash powerhouse, Egypt, dominated the ceremony after sweeping nine out of 10 awards at stake. Women’s world number one, Nour El Sherbini who bagged the prestigious British Open title besides becoming the first Egyptian to clinch the World Championships title since 1976, received the PSA Female Player of the Year and also Fans Player of the Season Award for Female Player. His younger brother, Marwan who is the world number seven player, won the Young Player of the Year award after a breakthrough season that saw him breaking into the top 10 for the first time besides winning back-to back titles — the Grasshopper Cup in April and the Houston Open, a month later.
World number 10 player, Ali Farag won the Fans Player of the Season Award and also the Spirit of Squash Award for Male Player.
Except for the Fans of the Season Award, the winner of each category is selected by the PSA Awards Committee, a group consisting of selected influential former players, members of the media, tournament promoters and PSA Board representatives.

KUCHING: It was a triumphant weekend for local musclemen Abdul Ramzi Bujang and Zamir Sani as they lifted two body fitness titles a piece at Summermall and Giant Samariang respectively.
Ramzi, 32, clinched the Above-170cm honours at the Mr Physique UiTM 2016 on Saturday and then Mr Physique Giant on Sunday while newcomer Zamir excelled in the Under-169cm and Under-170cm categories of the respective events. Saturday’s event at Summermall was conducted by the Non-Resident Representatives Committee (JPNR) of Universiti Teknologi Mara (UiTM) Samarahan Campus while Sunday’s tournament was organised by Giant Samariang — both in collaboration with Sarawak Bodybuilding Association (SBBA). According to SBBA honorary secretary Andy Ismail, the involvement of the institution of higher learning and a retail chain in bodybuilding competitions signalled positive acceptance of the sport by the public. Andy added that SBBA would always welcome any party — be they from universities, the corporate sector and non-governmental organisations — who wish to organise such competitions.
Prizes at the Summermall event were given out by Andy and UiTM Samarahan Campus deputy rector (students affairs and alumni) Prof Wan Akil Tuanku Abdullah. Real Madrid football players arrive to celebrate the team’s win on Plaza Cibeles in Madrid on May 29, 2016.
The Real players, who arrived home from Milan around 6:00 am (0400 GMT), headed directly for Cibeles where the fans had been celebrating since midnight. The squad snapped photos of the raucous crowd from a platform specially erected at Cibeles before captain Sergio Ramos waved the large silver trophy for the cheering supporters. Later after being greeted by Madrid mayor Manuel Carmena and heads of local government, the team returned to a full Bernabeu for a spectacular light and fireworks show. Three-time World Player of the Year Cristiano Ronaldo struck the winning spot-kick after the two sides couldn’t be separated with the score at 1-1 after 120 minutes of play. The football-mad Spanish capital of 3.2 million people had been dominated by the two clubs crests and colours in a frenzied build-up to the final, which attracted a worldwide audience of 180 million people in more than 200 countries. Praise poured in for Real Madrid, including from Spain’s acting Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy.

KUCHING: It was a field day for Sukma golfers as they won both the 47th SGA Sarawak Amateur Open and 28th SGA Sarawak Amateur Ladies Open events at Kelab Golf Sarawak (KGS) yesterday.
Sarawak Sukma XVIII golfer Paul San Weng Yau continued with his fine form to record a seven-under par 69 on the final day for a total gross score of 215 to lift the Datuk Amar James Wong Kim Min Challenge Trophy. He returned scores of 76 and 70 on the first and second day of the competition which attracted 112 golfers from Sabah, Brunei, West Malaysia and Sarawak.
It was also third time lucky for the 20-year old lad as he had lost to defending champion and Sarawak’s golfing ace Lee Ka Tung of Sibu Golf Club in 2014 and 2015.
Paul, who had only returned last week from the US where he is undergoing further studies, said he would be aiming to better his bronze-medal performance at the Pahang Sukma four years ago. He did not play for Sarawak at the last Sukma in Perlis in 2014 though he will still be eligible for the next Sukma in 2018. Finishing six strokes behind the champion was Nordin Yahaya of the Protellus Golf Team, Kedah and Johor Sukma player Irfan Syahmi, who led on the first day, settled for third spot with a 226. Mohammad Lokman Mustaffa of KGS was beaten into fourth place on count back (OCB) and a stroke further in fifth position was Sabah Sukma golfer Casper Loh. The sixth to 10th positions were occupied by Muhammad Zarfan (Johor MSNF) Lee Kah Ming (KGS), Fazley Chua (Sabah SGA), Lau Ching Leong (Sibu Golf Club) and Suzairi Iqmah (Sabah SGA). In the ladies competition, Sabah Sukma golfer Tham Soot Yuet beat Malaysian Golf Association’s Nur Syazani Amalia in the play-off to lift the SGA Sarawak Ladies Challenge Trophy. Tham, who has played golf for nine years, was surprised by her own performance especially on the final day yesterday.
It will be her second appearance in Sukma after the Perlis Sukma in 2014 where she ended empty-handed. Another Sukma golfer from Johor Chong Yong carded a three-day total of 237 (74-83-80) to finish third while in fourth and fifth spots were Noraishah Alisa Che Omar of Danau Golf Club (240), Kuala Lumpur and Sarawak Sukma golfer Zulaikha Nurziana (242)s. Meanwhile, Nur Hidayat Johari was declared the nett champion with his two-day total score of 139, followed by Johari Aman (143), Muhd Zarfan (144), Waili Abang (145), Wan Amin (146) and Christopher Daniel James (147). The top three finishers in the ladies nett contest were Chiew I Youn (143), Norazlina Alisa Che Omar (146) and Sarawak Sukma golfer Elisa Mae Kho (151). KUCHING: The baton run for the 2016 Malaysian Sports for the Deaf (Sopma) was flagged off at MBKS building here by Welfare, Women and Community Wellbeing Minister Datuk Fatimah Abdullah at 6pm on Saturday. Fatimah noted that it was always inspiring when events organised for the disabled received tremendous support from the Sarawakian public. Also present at Saturday’s event were Malaysian Society for the Deaf president Kamarzaman Harun, Sarawak Society for the Deaf president Albert Wong, Welfare and Community Wellbeing Assistant Minister Dr Abdul Rahman Ismail and Kuching City South Mayor Dato James Chan. Real Madrid players hold the trophy after winning the UEFA Champions League final over Atletico Madrid, at San Siro Stadium in Milan on May 28, 2016. MILAN: Cristiano Ronaldo added the finishing touches as Real Madrid were crowned kings of Europe for an 11th time with a 5-3 penalties victory over Atletico Madrid in the Champions League final. Two years after reviving Real’s bid for a 10th title, captain Sergio Ramos struck the opener after just 15 minutes at a packed San Siro.
But the match was pushed into extra time whenYannick Carrasco came off the bench to level on 79 minutes — the Belgian rushing towards the touchlines to kiss his partner in celebration. The normally reserved Frenchman, meanwhile, was overjoyed at lifting European club football’s biggest prize.


Real, inaugural winners of the competition in 1956, claimed their 10th title two years ago in Lisbon when a late Ramos leveller pushed the match into extra-time. Atletico coach Diego Simeone had pledged his side, two-time Europa League winners in 2010 and 2012, would end their wait to finally win Europe’s premier competition. But it took only six minutes for Real to start knocking on the door when Jan Oblak had to produce a point-blank save from Karim Benzemaafter Gareth Bale’s back-header. When Ramos opened the scoring on the quarter hour, Atletico’s hopes, and morale, plummeted. Before half-time Atletico were restricted to anAntoine Griezmann shot that fizzed wide of the upright, but they were handed a lifeline seconds after the restart when Pepe barged into Torres from behind. English referee Mark Clattenburg had no hesitation pointing to the spot but Griezmann, with seven goals in the competition this season, smashed his effort off the underside of the crossbar. After Bale skewed an effort wide, Atletico got back on their feet to see Saul Niguez turn on Carrasco’s cross and send a half-volley wide of the post. It prompted Simeone into some frantic arm-waving, but instead fans were left breathing huge sighs of relief as Real piled on the pressure. Luka Modric sent Benzema clear but he found the chest of onrushing Oblak with the goal at his mercy.
LONDON: Jose Mourinho boasted that giant clubs needed the best managers as he took over at Manchester United on Friday. Mourinho said he wanted to bury the past three years at Old Trafford, which saw David Moyes and then his own mentor Louis van Gaal struggle to emulate the title-studded success achieved by legendary manager Alex Ferguson. United officially appointed the former Chelsea, Real Madrid, Porto and Inter Milan boss on Friday after three days of contract negotiations. The 53-year-old Portuguese said he wanted to forget the lean years under Moyes and Van Gaal and think about the club’s illustrious history. Mourinho said his aim of winning top trophies at Old Trafford was realistic and pledged he would give everything he had to achieve it.
He said he would “give what I have, and what I don’t have – so I will give absolutely everything to try and go in the direction we all want”. Mourinho said an “empathy” had built up between him and the club’s fans over the years in which he brought opposing teams to Old Trafford. KUCHING: Sarawak Sukma XVIII golfer Paul San Weng Yau played a good round to seize the lead from Johor Sukma player Irfan Syahmi in the 47th SGA Sarawak Amateur Open at Kelab Golf Sarawak (KGS) yesterday. The Sarawak lad who had a first round gross score of one-under par 75 on Friday, returned a six-under par 70 yesterday for a total of 146 to lead Irfan by one stroke and top the 36 qualifiers for today’s final round. Nordin Yahya of Protellus Golf Team also improved his position from joint third (147) to sit in second spot and three strokes further was KGS golfer Mohammad Lokman Mustaffa. Lee Kah Ming (152) also from KGS, shared the fifth spot with Safaruddin Abidin of Sandakan Golf and Country Club and Suzairi Iqmah of Sabah Golf Association. Among the qualifiers from Sarawak were Lau Ching Leong, defending champion Lee Ka Tung, Steven Hii (Sibu Golf Club), Johari Aman, Waili Abang, Mohd Amirul Fadhlan, Bernard Yeo, Helmi Hipni and Sukma golfers Aziel Teo and Aaron Lau (KGS), Lee Ka Tiong and John Ling (Bintulu Golf Club) and Hassan Rahman from the Miri Golf Club. Meanwhile, Malaysian Golf Association golfer Nur Syazani Amalia Shahzan took over as the new women’s leader after posting a two-day total score of 155 (78-75) to finish ahead of Sabah Golf Association’s Tham Soot Yuet and first day leader Chong Yong of Johor Golf Association was third a stroke further back.
Sarawak Sukma golfer Eliza Mae Kho, representing Miri Golf Club, was joint fourth after carding a total score of 159 with Noraishah Alisa Che Omar of Danau Golf Club and Janice Ling from the Royal Perak Golf Club. Joining them in the top 12 qualifiers list for today’s final are Norezlina Alisa Che Omar and Nur Eliana Arriffin also from the Royal Perak Golf Club, Jacqueline Nickels of Sabah Golf Association, Zulaikha Nurziana of KGS who is also a member of the state Sukma XVIII squad, Nurdiayana Aqila Khalim of Johor Golf Association and Chiew I Youn from the Sabah Golf Association.
KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia’s squash queen, Datuk Nicol David’s bid to claim the third PSA World Series Finals title has came to an end after losing in the semifinals of the tournament held at Burj Park in Downtown Dubai, United Arab Emirates on Friday (early Saturday in Malaysia).
On the defeat, Nicol said that she is enjoying a good week for herself in the tournament which used the best of three sets format.
Massaro avenged her defeat to Egyptian Nour El Sherbini in the final of last month’s Women’s World Championship by downing the 20-year-old Alexandrian, winning 2-0 (12-10 and 11-6) in another semifinals match. BANGKOK: Thailand hosted its first major mixed martial arts event late Friday, as cage fighting makes inroads in a country fiercely proud of its homegrown Muay Thai boxing tradition. But the near-capacity crowd was left disappointed as Thai-born Dejdamrong Sor Amnuaysirichoke, lost out to the Japanese strawweight challenger Yoshitaka Naito.
Some Thai fighters are turning from traditional Muay Thai to MMA, a transition smoothed by the Thai sport’s versatile elbow, punch and kick techniques. Friday’s glitzy event, under the banner of the ONE Championship which is pushing cage fighting across Asia, was held despite opposition from Muay Thai purists who fear the new, big-spending sport could chip away at the domestic martial art. The growing international clout of MMA is offering a greater lure to Muay Thai fighters – and that has ruffled the feathers of traditionalists in Thailand who fear the all-action sport may one day eclipse the kingdom’s venerated boxing style. In recent decades MMA has gone from a niche sideshow to a multi-billion dollar industry and one of the world’s fastest growing sports – with Asia no exception – and many cage fighters are trained in Muay Thai. The Sports Authority of Thailand wants cage fighting banned in the kingdom, saying it threatens Thai culture and is overly violent – something which has raised wry smiles among fight promoters who say Muay Thai is hardly for the faint-hearted.
The last Singaporean to manage the Lions on a full contract was Vincent Subramaniam, whose stint ended 16 years ago. The new head coach was only given a one-year deal but Lim insisted that the length of the contract “has very little bearing on the trust that we have” for Sundramoorthy, who assisted Stange during a part of Singapore’s World Cup qualifying campaign. Sundramoorthy, 50, was one of the few Singaporeans to play in Europe, having featured for Swiss club FC Basel in 1988. Sundramoorthy led Singapore’s Lions XII team to the Malaysian Super league title in 2013 before they were booted from the league two years later. East Germany-born Stange came under fire for allegedly favouring younger players and forcing the Southeast Asian minnows to adopt a fast-paced passing game to limited effect. A former informer for the Stasi secret police in East Germany, Stange came to Singapore by way of Belarus and Iraq, where he had managed the national team under Saddam Hussein’s regime. Ferguson’s retirement in 2013 was always going to leave an enormous void to fill at Old Trafford after the legendary Scot bowed out as a Premier League winner, taking his tally to 25 major honours in his 27-year reign as manager. More than that, Ferguson?s character, methods, discipline, loyalty and fierce will to win were ingrained throughout a club that regards itself as the biggest in the world. It was always said following Ferguson would be the impossible job, and it has turned out to be too big for two men: David Moyes and Louis van Gaal. Moyes lasted just 12 months before making way for Van Gaal, who was denied a third year in the post when he was sacked in the aftermath of United’s FA Cup final win over Crystal Palace, the first honour the club had won since Ferguson called it a day. Finishing fifth in the Premier League and failing to qualify for the Champions League, along with a diet of uninspiring football, proved to be Van Gaal’s undoing and paved the way for the appointment of Mourinho on a three-year contract.
United are therefore doing their best to take no chances in hiring a manager who, as near as it gets in the modern game, is guaranteed to bring success.
The Portuguese, 53, has won multiple league titles in England, Spain, Italy and Portugal and led both Porto and Inter Milan to success in the Champions League. He has long since coveted the United managerial job and, having finally got his wish, the hard work starts here.
This current United side is not so much one in transition as one, arguably, still in decline. Van Gaal spent around ?250-million (329 million euros, $365 million) on adding to the squad he inherited but this season they finished one place lower in the league and went out of the group stages of the Champions League. The squad still looks unbalanced and, by Van Gaal’s own recognition, lacking in pace and creativity.
Mourinho therefore faces an immediate challenge in recruiting new players, without the temptation of Champions League football in year one. Zlatan Ibrahimovic may well be one of the first arrivals and the striker, who played under Mourinho in Milan, will add the kind of stardust United’s supporters want to see. Just as pressingly, Mourinho needs to strengthen through the spine of his team, at centre-back and in central midfield, as well as add quality in the wide positions. United have lost their way without Ferguson’s drive and direction with the club opting not to try and recapture it in the shape of record appearance holder Ryan Giggs, the assistant manager again overlooked for the top job. It may be a bumpy ride and it’s likely to be revolution and not evolution at Old Trafford. Sarawak GA president Hoan Kee Hock (second left) posing with the golfers on his same flight prior to the start of the 47th SGA Sarawak Amateur Open at Kelab Golf Sarawak in Petra Jaya yesterday. KUCHING: Sukma VIII golfers from Johor Irfan Syahmi and Chong Yong grabbed the lead on the first day of the 47th SGA Sarawak Amateur Open and the 28th SGA Sarawak Ladies Amateur Open at Kelab Golf Sarawak (KGS) yesterday. Irfan, playing under the Johor GA banner, posted a four-under 72 to lead Sabah Sukma XVIII golfer Suzairi Iqmah by two strokes. A stroke further back in joint third were Safarudin Abidin of Sandakan GCC, Nordin Yahaya of Protellus Golf Team, Sarawak’s Sukma golfer Paul San, Sibu GC’s Lau Ching Leong, Muhammad Daniel Faidz of MGA and Lee Kah Ming from KGS.
Sarawak’s top ace and defending champion Lee Ka Tung failed to get off to an ideal start, only returning the day’s score of 78 to share joint fifth spot with Hassan Rahmat of Miri GC and Mohammad Lokman Mustaffa of KGS.
The 112 men golfers will be trying to make the cut today for the top 36 spots for Sunday’s final while the 12 top finishers in today’s ladies competition will advance to the final.
Noraishah Alisa Che Omar of Danau GC was third on 79 while another Sukma golfer from Johor Nuridyana Aqila Khalim took fourth spot with an 80.
Best finishers from Sarawak were Sukma players Eliza Mae Kho (81) in joint fifth, Zulaikha Nurziana (83) in joint sixth and Tan Chlo-Wee in seventh spot. The Champions League Trophy ahead of the Final between Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid at the San Siro Stadium, Milan in Italy.
MILAN: Cristiano Ronaldo insists personal goals will be put to one side as Real Madrid seek to embellish their incredible European record with victory over Atletico Madrid in the Champions League final on Saturday. Ronaldo, a three-time world player of the year, has never scored a goal at the San Siro but has the chance to match and surpass his own record of scoring 17 Champions League goals in a season. Yet two years after Real defender Sergio Ramos levelled at the death to inspire a stunning, extra-time comeback and secure a 10th triumph in Lisbon, the Portuguese superstar insists winning an 11th crown is far more important than who hits the net at the San Siro. Victory would see Real Madrid embellish their reputation as the most successful club in Europe having won the inaugural edition, the European Champions Clubs’ Cup, in 1956 when Argentinian Hector Rial struck the winner in a 4-3 victory over fallen French giants Stade Reims in Paris. Atletico’s achievements may pale in comparison, but the threat from Diego Simeone’s men, who have restricted Real to only one win in their past 10 meetings since the 2014 final, is real.
Before winning two Europa League titles in 2010 and 2012, the ‘Rojiblancos’ last continental trophy was the now defunct European Cup Winners’ Cup in 1962. Yet only two years after Lisbon, Simeone’s men are back having stunned Barcelona in the quarter-finals, and ended the hopes of the Catalan giants’ former coach Pep Guardiola when they ousted his Bayern Munich side on away goals in the semi-finals. Real fans may have the history, but Zinedine Zindane’s men have beaten Atletico only once in 10 meetings since their 4-1 victory in Lisbon two years ago. Unsurprisingly, Simeone is bullish ahead of a clash that Ronaldo says will settle which side rules the roost in the Spanish capital.
He believes the key to beating Real will be breaking down a solid defence and making sure his players remain vigilant at set-pieces. Whoever wins, says Ronaldo, will earn the local bragging rights: “We will see who is the best. Two years ago, Atletico were a whisker away from avenging their European Cup final defeat to Bayern Munich in 1974 (4-0) after Diego Godin gave Simeon’s men a 36th minute opener.
Ramos’s 93rd minute leveller, however, pushed the match into extra time and, with the fresh momentum, Gareth Bale, Marcelo and Ronaldo, from the spot, struck to compound Atletico’s misery. Now, it is Ronaldo, Bale and French striker Karim Benzema who could have their work cut out, while Ramos and Pepe, Zidane’s preferred centre-back partnership, will be wary of a repeat of recent history. Atletico have recorded 35 clean sheets in 56 games this season, including shutouts at home to Barcelona and Bayern Munich when they were dumped out of the competition. They also managed a 1-0 win at Real’s Santiago Bernabeu to inflict Zidane’s only La Liga defeat in four months in charge when the sides last met in February. Ronaldo, who suffered an injury scare in recen days, admitted: “Atletico always play the same way.
LONDON: Manchester United on Friday anointed Jose Mourinho as their new manager to launch a third bid in less than three years to transform the Red Devils into a title-winning force again. After three days of talks, Mourinho agreed a three-year contract on a bumper salary reportedly worth more than US$20 million (19.5 million euros) a year. Mourinho seemed destined to manage United ever since his Porto side eliminated Ferguson’s men from the 2004 Champions League. He thought his time had come when Ferguson retired in 2013, but concerns over his volatile personality prompted United to turn to the more reserved Moyes instead. But with that move proving a disaster and Van Gaal faring little better, United’s powerbrokers have decided to take a chance on Mourinho, despite his turbulent reputation.
Media reports said Mourinho will earn up to ?15 million (US$21 million) a year and will have a ?200 million fund to buy players for United who failed to qualify for the Champions League with their fifth-placed finish in the English Premier League under Van Gaal.


Mourinho was sacked by Chelsea in December but has established a reputation as one of the best coaches in the game. He has won league titles and cups in four countries with Porto, Chelsea, Inter Milan and Real Madrid. United released a picture taken Thursday of a smiling Mourinho holding up the club’s red home shirt. The Red Devils’ statement on Mourinho’s appointment did not mention the future of Ryan Giggs, the club stalwart and Van Gaal’s deputy who had been seen as a potential successor to the Dutchman. Giggs, 42, knows the club inside out, has spent nearly three decades there as a player and then on the coaching staff. Mourinho is expected to bring long-time assistant Rui Faria and goalkeeping coach Silvino Louro with him, meaning Van Gaal’s assistant coaches Albert Stuivenberg and Frans Hoek are likely to be dismissed. Mourinho will hope to have significantly improved an unbalanced and often lacklustre United squad by the time the new season begins in August. Former Paris Saint-Germain forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Sporting Lisbon midfielder Joao Mario, Everton defender John Stones, Chelsea midfielder Nemanja Matic and Atletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann are reportedly among the names on his wanted list. But Mourinho might also have to deal with scepticism from the squad at Old Trafford after a report that some senior players have already expressed concern the tactically defensive coach might prove too similar to Van Gaal, whose tactics frustrated United fans. Sarawak GA president Hoan at the dinner at KGS Mandarin Restaurant in Kuching on Thursday, welcoming some 130 golfers from Sabah, Brunei, Johor, Negeri Sembilan, Malacca, Selangor and Sarawak, vying for the Datuk Amar James Wong Kim Min Challenge Trophy and the SGA Ladies Trophy in the three-day competition.
KUCHING: Young Sukma-bound golfers are right on course at the 47th SGA Sarawak Amateur Open Golf Championship and the 28th SGA Sarawak Amateur Ladies Open Golf Championship that commenced yesterday and ends tomorrow, at KGS the official Sukma golf venue. The Sarawak Golf Association (SGA) was very pleased with the encouraging response, with its president Hoan Kee Hock saying that this year, a total of 130 golfers from Sabah, Brunei, Johor, Negeri Sembilan, Malacca, Selangor and Sarawak are vying for Datuk Amar James Wong Kim Min Challenge Trophy and the SGA Ladies Trophy in the three-day competition. He was also pleased to note that the championships had attracted many young players, especially Sukma XVIII players from some states. He said it was sterling exposure for the Sarawak Sukma XVIII team and Sukma golfers from other states, who are here to check out and adapt to the playing conditions.
One of the hole-in-one prizes is a Honda CR-V 2.0 car worth RM150,000 at Matang Hole 3 which is sponsored by Hoan while the other two prizes sponsored by Ng Soo Tian are RM10,000 each to be awarded for the rare feat at Santubong Hole 17 and Matang Hole 8. Hoan said the event was also a prelude to Sukma XVIII where Sarawak will be the host this year and KGS the venue for the golf competition.
KUCHING: Sarawak are ready to defend their crown in the 36th Malaysia Youth and Cadet Table Tennis Championship at Menara DBKL from May 30 to June 2. Newly elected chairman of the Table Tennis Association of Sarawak (TTAS) Tan Keng Yew said the state is sending a 20-strong team to compete in the Boys’ and Girls’ Under-18 and Under-15, each with categories of singles, doubles and team events. Tan said Sarawak would need to capture at least five to seven of the categories to retain their title. According to Tan, Sarawak’s strongest rivals in the boys’ competition would be Selangor and Kedah while Selangor, Johor and Penang would pose stiff opposition in the girls’ fray. It would be another first for TTAS as the paddlers who finished in the top three positions including the singles, doubles and team events will receive cash incentives from TTAS chairman Tan, who hoped that the incentives would spur the paddlers on at the national meet. National paddler Alice Chang, who is studying at Bukit Jalil Sports School (BJSS), will spearhead the Girls’ U18 team which includes Crystal Tiong, Andrea Tan, Catherine Chan and Sia Hsiao Ching. Another BJSS student Karen Lyne Dick will lead the Girls’ U15 challenge with Tay Lynn Jia, Sammi Tay, Elicia Tsai and Chang Shay Xuan.

DUBAI: Datuk Nicol David, the most successful female squash player of the professional era, kept alive her hopes of winning yet another major title by beating Nouran Gohar, the world junior champion, 11-7, 11-9 to qualify for the last four of the PSA World Series finals. The eight-time world champion from Malaysia made light of any difficulties she may experience with the two-inch lower tin which has altered the tactical emphases of the women’s game, moving the ball around well, usually picking good moments to play the ball in short, and coping with the hectic helter-skelter into which the rallies sometimes developed. Nicol also resisted a dangerous-looking fight-back which took the hard-hitting Egyptian to a 9-8 lead in the second game, and won the match with a penalty point after a Gohar drive lurched into the middle allowing David no room in which to play the ball.
Nicol will complete a hat-trick of World Series finals titles after the women’s event’s three-year hiatus if she triumphs in Saturday’s final, something which may feel especially welcome to her after an almost barren 17 months. First though she must cope tomorrow (Friday) with Raneem El Welily, the former world number one from Egypt against whom she saved a match point to win the memorable 2014 world final in Cairo. The other semi-final is between Laura Massaro, the top-seeded former world champion from England and Nour El Sherbini, the 20-year-old current world champion from Egypt. Massaro notched her third win by overcoming Amanda Sobhy, the first American ever to make the world’s top eight,13-11, 11-9 in a tense, tight, and occasionally contentious match with a trickle of difficult refereeing decisions. Sherbini, by contrast, rescued herself from a first day defeat with a calm and authoritative 11-4, 11-6 success against Camille Serme, last year’s British Open champion from France. The other world champion, Greg Gaultier, was rewarded for his three wins with a semi-final against Miguel Angel Rodriguez, the dynamic fifth-seeded Colombian. PUTRAJAYA, Selangor: Sarawak’s Pandelela Rinong is primed to bring home a medal from the 2016 Olympic Games, after winning the Sportswoman of the Year at the 2015 National Sports Awards on Wednesday.
The victory has inspired the national diving queen for a medal flourish in Brazil this August.
Pandelela, 23, who has previously won the award in 2011, and 2013, said her focus now was to improve her diving performance in the final three months leading up to the world’s biggest sporting event. Meanwhile, national silat athlete Mohd Al Jufferi Jamari, who was named as Sportsman of the Year, described the award as a significant achievement for the sport of silat, which has generally been given less attention compared to other sports. Also present were Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak and Youth and Sports Minister Khairy Jamaluddin.

The Pahang athlete was bestowed the prestigious award after several excellent performances including winning gold medals at the 16th World Silat Championships and World Martial Art Championships in Thailand as well as the Belgium Open Silat Championships for the sixth time in the Putra E class (65-70kg). National diving queen Pandelela Rinong Pamg was selected as Sportswoman of the Year for the third time after winning the award in 2011 and 2013, for winning a bronze medal in the World Diving Series in Canada and the 16th World Aquatic Championships in Kazan, Russia in the 10m platform event, which also saw her qualify for the Rio Olympics in August.

National paralympic sprinter Mohamad Ridzuan Mohamad Puzi won the Paralympic Sportsman of the Year award following his success in winning a gold medal at the International Paralympic Committee (IPC) Championships in Qatar in the 100m (T36) and the Asean Para Games (APG) in Singapore in the 100m and 200m (T36) events.
The 29-year-old sprinter, who is now ranked number one in the world in the 100m T36 event, has already booked his berth to the 2016 Paralympics in Brazil in September. National women’s paralympian Felicia Mikat, 17, who created upsets when she won three gold medals at the APG in Singapore, was named as the Paralympic Sportswoman of the Year. The men’s archery compound team of Juwaidi Marzuki, Zulfadhli Ruslan, Zaki Mazhan and Lee Kin Lip, which won the SEA Games gold medal for the compound team event, was chosen as the national men’s Sports Team of the Year. The women’s archery compound team of Fatin Nurfatehah Mat Salleh, Saritha Cham Nong, Nur Rizah Ishak and Nurhayati Al-Madihah Hashim, which also won the 2015 SEA Games gold for compound team event, was honoured as the national women’s Sports Team of the Year.
Al-Jufferi and Pandelela each received a trophy, a certificate and a cash prize of RM20,000 from Yang di-Pertuan Agong Tuanku Abdul Halim Mu’adzam Shah.
Al-Jufferi, 24, who was a gold medallist at the 2015 SEA Games in Singapore, beat five new faces, Ooi Tze Liang (diving), Muhammad Rafiq Ismail (tenpin bowling), Thor Chuan Leong (snooker and billiards), Loh Jack Chang (wushu) and Mohd Harrif Saleh (cycling). Meanwhile, Pandelela defeated five other nominees — Nur Izzati Yaakob (basketball), Fatin Nurfatehah Mat Salleh (archery), Siti Rahmah Mohamed Nasir (silat), Nur Syazrin Muhamad Latif (sailing) and Chan Lu Yi (wushu). They received a trophy and certificate each from Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak. However, World Growth International and World Growth Mongolia are clearly NGOs of a different cut - NGOs with people at the forefront of their considerations and with no hidden agendas. But even in the most controlled environments, mined-out areas continue to generate dangerous methane gases.  Continuous ventilation of these areas can strain fan systems and is not practical for continuously monitoring mines in operation for 30 years or more.
The bulk bags can be placed above the placer unit to provide material previously contained in individual 45-lb bags.
The radar information is processed by a new on-board touch screen display, which alerts the operator with a visual indication followed by an audible alarm if the truck is put into gear.
Three different levels of alarms indicate the proximity of an object or the urgency of taking action to avoid an object. The system is scalable, allowing miners to start with just the four cameras and add radars later. Additionally, any critical zone warning that has not been acknowledged will trigger an audible alarm.
Radars used include both short range radars, which detect objects as far away as 23 feet (7 meters), and medium range radars, which have a range of 66 feet (20 meters). We at SBBA highly welcome and support such move because, in a way, it helps prevent our youngsters from being involved in social ills.
Two Champions League titles in three years, it is incredible,” said Monica Gonzalez, a 25-year-old Real fan. No matter the outcome, I will be going all out to play and enjoy the game,” he said, adding that he still has a lot to work on his game. This will also give me a lot of confidence to face the challenge in Sukma XVIII,” said the 18-year-old who had played four times in the SGA Sarawak Amateur Ladies Open, with a third placing as her previous best. I have a phenomenal team and great players who are also talented, and it was together we achieved what we did tonight,” said Zidane. I’m sad for the Thais but it’s a great game… It’s just so raw, so real,” said one spectator Charles O’Farrell, who recently joined Dej’s gym in Singapore. Sundramoorthy as its new head coach in place of German Bernd Stange, who left the football-mad island at number 148 in the world rankings. He has managed the big beasts of Real Madrid and Chelea, twice, in the Roman Abramovich era. Things unravelled badly at Chelsea before his departure from the fallen champions last year. United have overlooked it and their supporters will be overjoyed at landing a manager who always seemed destined to arrive.
Chong Yong hit a two-under 74 to lead the ladies’ field, with Nur Syazani Amalia Shahzan of MGA and Janice Ling from the Royal Perak GC in joint second with similar 78s.
But the 53-year-old Portuguese supercoach said it was the “mystique” of United that drew him to the challenge. As you know, most of the participants here are the top golfers,” Hoan said during the welcoming dinner at Kelab Golf Sarawak on Thursday. Also seen in the picture are Tan (fourth right), Chung (left), Sarawak State Sports Council coordinator for table tennis Thomas Chia (second right) and TTAS officials.
For the first time in the state table tennis history, the state contingent would be managed by a foreigner Yohan Beeck from the Netherlands.
Welily finished top of group B, unbeaten with three wins, after beating her friend Omneya Abdel Kawy 15-13, 11-9. This second victory kept alive her chances of a climactic finish to by far the finest season of her career. The Frenchman had already been sure of qualifying worked hard and pulled out some extra tricks to prevail 7-11, 11-8, 11-1 against Omar Mosaad, yet another high level Egyptian.What was effectively a dead match contained surprising drive and tension, emanating from its being a repeat of the World Open final six months ago in Seattle. These two have applauded the Government of Mongolia for signing a landmark mining agreement to develop Oyu Tolgoi.
A display screen in the cab provides visual confirmation of the objects detected by radar, which enables the operator to make informed decisions when moving a truck. When the audible alarm is active the camera view will switch automatically to the zone that has a detected object. The system is integrated with VIMSTM and other on-board computers, enabling it to switch into camera-only mode when the machine travels beyond 66 feet (20 meters). In the event of multiple objects, the camera view will toggle between camera views in zones with objects. A Minova bulk bag contains the equivalent of a full pallet of individual bags and requires no manual handling.  An added safety feature is the significant reduction in airborne dust and waste material handling.
The Minova bulk system also reduces the time and labor required to install a seal and helps to ensure a consistent mix.
