Arsenal 1-0 Huddersfield: Player ratings as Gunners leave it late

first_img Son ban confirmed as Tottenham fail with appeal to overturn red card 4 Hector Bellerin – 7 He was up and down the right channel throughout the afternoon and was Arsenal’s most attacking player on a day where their creative stars failed to show up.Lucas Torreira – 8 Gave Arsenal so much energy in midfield like he always does. He is becoming a fans’ favourite at the Emirates – and his late goal will only increase his popularity.Matteo Guendouzi – 7 He followed up his impressive display at Manchester United with another fine performance against Huddersfield. He used the ball so smartly. Booked for diving late on, though.Granit Xhaka – 5 Surrendered possession too easily at times and was moved into defence in the second-half where he fared slightly better. Granit Xhaka played in defence in the second-half 4 Bernd Leno – 5Had just one save to make, a routine stop to deny Alex Pritchard.Stephan Lichtsteiner – 6 Did not do too badly playing out of position at centre-back. However, he was sacrificed at half-time as Arsenal made a double attacking change.Sokratis Papastathopoulos – 7 His fine start to the season shows no sign of slowing down. He was a rock and a leader in the Arsenal defence.Shkodran Mustafi – 6 Went off with a hamstring injury just after the hour mark. Had a comfortable afternoon up until then. 4 Sead Kolasinac – 5 His crossing wasn’t quite there. With Nacho Monreal returning from injury today, he’ll be breathing down Kolasinac’s neck for a starting place.Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang – 4 Missed a sitter in the first-half after failing to direct Granit Xhaka’s cross on target from close-range. It wasn’t his day in front of goal.Alexandre Lacazette – 4 His movement caused problems for Huddersfield’s defence, but he blazed over when unmarked in the box from 12 yards. Unlucky to have his goal controversially ruled out after he was adjudged to be offside. Hooked off at half-time.

South Africa to get two new metros

first_img10 December 2010 “Next year’s elections will be based on the existent boundaries, and that can’t be changed,” he said. Source: BuaNews Elections based on existing wards South Africa’s Municipal Demarcation Board has announced that Buffalo City, comprising greater East London, and Mangaung, comprising greater Bloemfontein, will become metropolitan municipalities after the 2011 local government elections. South Africa’s six existing metros are the City of Johannesburg, Tshwane (which includes Pretoria), Ekurhuleni to the east of Johannesburg, Cape Town, eThekwini (which includes Durban), and Nelson Mandela Bay (which includes Port Elizabeth).center_img Buffalo City and Mangaung are currently local municipalities that fall under districts: Buffalo City under the Amatole District Municipality, and Mangaung under the Motheo District Municipality. Mahlangu said that while there was talk of doing away with economically weak municipalities, the 2011 local government elections would be based on the existing 4 277 wards. South Africa’s metropolitan municipalities execute all the functions of local government for a city or conurbation, in contrast to areas which are primarily rural, where local government is divided into district municipalities and local municipalities. Briefing reporters in Pretoria on Thursday, Municipal Demarcation Board chairman Landiwe Mahlangu said the decision followed careful consideration of the two municipalities’ economic activity and integrated development planning.last_img read more

Social Networking: Taking Off or Taking a Dive?

first_imgRelated Posts The Dos and Don’ts of Brand Awareness Videos Recently, there have been a few conflicting reports about the current popularity of social networks here in the U.S. On one hand, you have reports that point toward the growth of social networks and their continuing crossover into mainstream use. On the other hand, recently released stats on visitor data show that these networks are maturing and plateauing. So, what’s really going on here?Social Networks Taking a Dive? Today on GigaOm, Om Malik reports on some of the new numbers coming in for social networks here in the U.S., specifically new comScore data which shows that the two biggest networks – MySpace and Facebook – are beginning to plateau in their growth. Image courtesy of GigaOmAdditionally, he points to an eMarketer article where they’ve lowered their 2008 advertising estimates from $1.6 billion to $1.43 billion. By looking at these numbers, Malik concludes that social networking is in for “tough times going forward.” But is that really the case?Social Networking Taking Off? On the flip side, a completely different, and more positive, report on social networking was also released today. The report is called “The Consumer Internet Barometer” and is produced by The Conference Board, a global business research and membership organization, and TNS, a world leader in market insight and information who surveys 10,000 households across the country and tracks who’s doing what on the Internet.Interestingly, their report doesn’t mention a decline or plateau at all. Instead, it concludes that what was once only a niche activity is now a growing trend that has more people joining every day. According to the report, one out of every four people visit social networking sites, and half of those that do, do so on a daily basis. The trend is so prevalent, says Lynn Franco, Director of The Conference Board Consumer Research Center, that it’s going to extend beyond just personal use. “The next growth wave will be expanding and incorporating these networks into our business lives,” she claims. While this report doesn’t look at traffic stats and advertising projections, it is looking at market penetration, and in doing so, paints a much rosier picture than the worrisome plateau in the chart above. What It All MeansPerhaps social networking is reaching a saturation point as it matures, but that’s not to say that it’s all doom-and-gloom. Many people are still joining social networks, and, with each new generation, social networking will become even more of a part of life than it was for the generation prior. Whether MySpace and Facebook will always be the hot properties that they are today is yet to be seen, but the rise of new sites like Twitter, for example, shows that there’s still potential for new social networks to rise up and gain mainstream appeal.If anything, the sheer number of users on these networks today prove that social networking has earned its place in today’s mix of new media. Don Ryan, Vice President, Technology and Media, TNS, agrees, saying, “as social networking becomes a staple in people’s media experience, brands will place it alongside print, TV and search as a main advertising vehicle.” Hmmm..maybe a saturation point isn’t really such a bad thing after all?
