Badgers looking for success in Columbus

first_imgSenior forward Jasmine Giles and the Badgers will look to earn critical points in WCHA conference play as the season winds down.[/media-credit]After being plagued with injuries, the Wisconsin women’s hockey team is ready to take the ice at full strength. The Badgers hit the road this weekend to face the Ohio State Buckeyes in a WCHA showdown.After being swept in one series and splitting two more series after break, the University of Wisconsin has suffered from holes in its lineup due to injuries. With a full lineup in tow this weekend, interim head coach Tracey DeKeyser hopes some of their struggles will be alleviated.“We have a near full lineup, so that’s exciting,” DeKeyser said. “We have people healthy, for the most part. Hopefully it lends to our advantage.”Even with a full lineup, the Badgers have had issues finding the back of the net this season. They have been consistently out shooting their opponents, but haven’t been able to seal wins.While having the ability to keep creating scoring opportunities, the Badgers hope they can finally turn things around and get the puck in goal.“We’ve [been] struggling with that all year — outshooting our opponents and them winning by a goal or something,” senior forward Jasmine Giles said. “We started the week off with a lot of goal-scoring drills, just crash the net, put the rebounds in.”With hopes for a strong showing in Columbus, UW is ready to put everything on the ice.Wisconsin last faced off with Ohio State in October and since then a lot has changed. Currently the Badgers are tied for third in the WCHA with Bemidji Sate with 20 points. Ohio State sits only three points behind in fourth. The series could have a lot of implications for the WCHA playoff picture. The squad knows not to underestimate.“Road games are extremely important for us and Ohio State has a really good team despite what the rankings are right now. We’re ready to play our hardest,” defenseman Geena Prough said.The road trip brings a different rink for the Badgers. The ice in Columbus is smaller than the Kohl Center, causing a different style of play.As with any team, home has its advantages, but DeKeyser has been preparing her team for what the Buckeyes have in store for them.“One thing that’s really different about playing them on a big rink versus a small rink is that they have a lot of good puck handlers and it’s to their advantage to play on a small rink, I think, it being their home facility,” DeKeyser said. “We’ve done a lot of close area battles, increasing the pressure on our players all week, trying to get them accustomed to having limited time and space for the upcoming competition.”With the home ice advantage, the Buckeyes also have a strong offensive threat in freshman forward Hokey Langan.Langan was named rookie of the week by the WHCA for the second time this season after scoring four goals in Ohio State’s 5-2 victory over Bemidji State last weekend. It’s safe to say the Badgers will be keeping their eyes on her.“Whenever she’s on the ice, whoever is marked up against her needs to be aware,” DeKeyser said. “She’s got great hands, she can snipe the puck, she’s got a great slap-shot and wrist-shot. As a freshman, we can’t take her for granted. She understands the game; she’s a Canadian national team member. She’s a serious threat for their group. We have to be marked up well with her whenever she’s on the ice.”“We just have to be aware when she’s out there,” Giles said. “She’s not that fastest player, but she can really move the puck around and has a really awesome shot. We just have to make sure to stay on her and know that she’s out there — shut her down. If she does score we’re going to have to counteract with some goals.”last_img read more

SA ‘making progress on poverty’

first_imgIncome inequality Development Indicators 2009, released last week by The Presidency’s policy coordination and advisory service unit, also found that more than 13-million South Africans now receive social grants, compared to 7.87-million in 2004/05. Economic growth, employment Despite recent protests by citizens over alleged lack of service delivery, the report found that the government continued to make big improvements, with the number of subsidised houses continuing to increase, along with access to water, sanitation and electricity. He noted that the distribution of social grants and the improvement of the labour market were not enough to dent income inequality, which the report says did not decrease even during the years of economic growth. Despite the reduction in poverty, the publication found that income inequality has remained the same or worsened in the country. However, despite the reduction in poverty levels, the rate of eliminating poverty in the country remains slow. 28 September 2009 The report, which provides information on the impact of government programmes, found that there was a significant decrease in the number of South Africans living in the lower categories of the Living Standards Measure (LSM -3), as well as an increase in the size of the middle bands (LSM 4-6).center_img Source: BuaNews “When the percentage of richest and poorest quintiles is compared, the deep structural nature of poverty in the country is clear,” Manuel said. “This structural nature of poverty has a racial underpinning.” The number of South Africans living in poverty declined between 1999 and 2007, positioning the country well to meet its target of halving poverty by 2014, while the incomes of the poorest have increased from R783 to R1 041 per month in recent years, a new report finds. “We are improving people’s quality of life, but inequality is worsening,” Planning Minister Trevor Manuel said in Cape Town last week, adding that the government would have to focus on intensifying its programmes to take the country onto a higher development trajectory. Service delivery “Although poverty has reduced over time … the rate of eliminating poverty is slow,” the report said, adding: “Over this period, there seems to have been significant shifts in the provincial distribution of poverty.” “The improvement in people’s lives should be attributed to economic growth and expanding employment, as well as the government’s poverty alleviation initiatives, social assistance and support for better housing,” the report says.last_img read more

Household debt ‘on the mend’

first_img14 December 2011 The decline in the number of civil judgments for debt shows household balance sheets are on the mend in South Africa, an Investec economist says, while warning that a substantial slowing in economic activity would slow this trend.Annabel Bishop of Investec Group Economics was commenting last week on Statistics SA’s finding of a 22.9 percent drop for civil judgments to individuals and an 11 percent drop in debt judgments to businesses, year on year, for October.This meant that 38 800 people were issued judgments on their debts, compared to 50 000 a year ago, Bishop explained.“The historical average is [53 000] individuals a month, with figures of [60 000] during the 2009 recession, so October’s monthly outcome indicates an improvement,” she said.Statistics for businesses indicated a decline in the number of businesses still struggling with debt repayments, with 3 697 firms receiving judgments in October this year compared to 4 156 in October 2010.Interest rates were unlikely to be higher this time next year, and could be cut if economic growth began to stall, Bishop said.The affordability of debt repayments could still be negatively affected even if rates were cut. This was because if there was a rapid deterioration in economic growth, it would increase unemployment substantially.The challenge to policy makers was to have further interest rate cuts to spur economic growth, but not to stimulate borrowing.Sapalast_img read more
