Half-time: Chelsea 3 Newcastle 0
Diego Costa, Pedro and Willian all scored in the first 16 minutes to put Chelsea in complete command.Costa, playing in a facemask to protect a broken nose, opened the scoring early on when he timed his run perfectly to guide Willian’s ball into the far corner.On eight minutes, Chelsea doubled their lead. Newcastle left-back Rolando Aarons played a casual pass on halfway, Pedro beat Daryl Janmaat to the ball and the Spaniard ran to the edge of the box before firing home.The home side’s dominance was underscored by their third goal, as Costa picked up Cesc Fabregas’ lofted pass before threading the ball into the path of Willian, who was left with a simple finish.The goals were a fair reward for what was easily the most free-flowing performance of the season.And they could have been further ahead but for blocks denying Branislav Ivanovic’s shot and John Terry’s header, while Willian had a free-kick tipped behind in injury-time.Newcastle barely threatened with Georginio Wijnaldum’s shot straight at Thibaut Courtois from Janmaat’s cross their only shot on target.The only concern for Chelsea was when captain Terry limped off after 36 minutes, following a tangle with Aleksandar Mitrovic.Chelsea: Courtois; Ivanovic, Cahill, Terry (Baba 36), Azpilicueta; Matic, Fabregas; Willian, Hazard, Pedro; Costa.Subs: Begovic, Baba, Mikel, Loftus-Cheek, Traore, Kenedy, Remy.Newcastle United: Elliot; Janmaat, Taylor, Coloccini, Aarons; Tiote, Shelvey; Sissoko, Wijnaldum, Townsend; Mitrovic.Subs: Darlow, Lascelles, Saivet, Colback, Perez, Doumbia, Riviere.Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebook
In-flight wi-fi coming to South Africa soon
South Africans flying between Cape Townand Johannesburg will be able to accesswireless internet from April 2011. (Image: Wired) MEDIA CONTACTS • Carel van der Merwe WirelessG +27 12 676 3001 RELATED ARTICLES • Mobile internet booms in SA • New broadband network to launch • Cheaper internet for SA • Internet revolution for AfricaNosimilo RamelaWirelessG, a local internet company, will soon begin installing wireless internet on South African domestic passenger planes to enable frequent fliers to keep up with their deadlines and the fast-paced world around them.Passengers flying between Cape Town and Johannesburg will be able to access wireless internet through a service called Fli G-Connect from April 2011.Sechaba Mokoena, a DJ from Johannesburg, said he was looking forward to the service. “It’s about time we got wi-fi access on our country’s local planes. I am never on the ground – I travel to Cape Town and Durban a lot for work, so I’m happy I’ll be able to keep up with the social scene while I fly. As a DJ, I need to keep up with what’s happening at all times.”Businessman Ronald de Necker, also from Johannesburg, agrees. He often has to attend meetings in Cape Town and flies there weekly. “This is brilliant. We live in a fast-paced world and we need to have this kind of fast-paced, easily accessible internet on our planes to keep up with deadlines while travelling and not miss out on any economic news or events taking place at any given time around the world.”South African technology research company World Wide Worx said effective internet connectivity is vital for the country’s economy. “We are in a competitive age during which access to information and ease of communication enhances productivity,” said company head Arthur Goldstuck.World Wide Worx estimates that South Africa had 6-million internet users by the end of 2010, and that this will climb to 10-million by 2015.Mango leading the wayWirelessG CEO Carel van der Merwe said local airline Mango would be the first to have the technology installed in its planes, but noted that his company is currently in talks with other airlines as well to roll out the service to as many operators as possible.To access wi-fi while on a flight, South African passengers will need to open a G-Connect account through the WirelessG website – this does not cost anything. Once signed up, users need to buy a WirelessG voucher to secure time online. The concept is much like buying airtime for a prepaid mobile phone.Van der Merwe said passengers will soon be able to get onto a plane, switch on their laptop, smartphone or tablet, enable their wi-fi, and then pick up a signal. “You then put in your G-Connect account credentials, or you purchase a voucher, and Bob’s your uncle, you are on the internet.”“Wireless internet on planes will allow me the chance to do my banking, emailing, and pay bills during the two-hour flights to Johannesburg I have to take every month,” said Catherine Sithole, a public relations executive from Cape Town. “I’m always so busy and prefer everything to be quick and easy – wireless internet is just what I need.”A study conducted by research consultancy Wakefield Research and the Wi-Fi Alliance shows that the availability of wi-fi has become a key factor for many Americans when deciding which airline to fly. According to the findings, 76% of frequent fliers in the US would change their airline to have in-flight wi-fi.Wakefield Research and the alliance predict that airlines which do not offer in-flight wi-fi as part of their service could face a serious decline in customers and ultimately a loss of revenue in the future.
SA to host first BRICS science meeting
27 January 2014 The first Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa (BRICS) ministerial meeting on science, technology and innovation will take place in Kleinmond in the Western Cape from 10 to 11 February, the Department of Science and Technology announced last week. Science and Technology Minister Derek Hanekom will host the two-day event, which will be attended by science ministers from the BRICS countries. The meeting is one of the activities agreed to at the 5th BRICS summit held in Durban last year. According to the department, the ministers will table a memorandum of understanding aimed at strengthening cooperation between the five countries in science, technology and innovation. The memorandum will also commit the countries to seeking to tackle common socio-economic challenges “through appropriate funding and investment instruments, using shared experiences and complementarities, the co-generation of new knowledge and innovative products, services and processes, and promoting joint BRICS partnerships with other strategic actors in the developing world”. On the second day of the event, the BRICS ministers will visit the Square Kilometre Array (SKA) site in Carnarvon in the Northern Cape, where the MeerKAT radio telescope, a precursor to the SKA, is being constructed.
