first_imgSoweto’s Vilakazi Street was once home to former President Nelson Mandela, but now has another drawcard.A mother-and-daughter team is educating members of their community about snakes. The 19-year-old Lwandle and her mother, Lindiwe Mngomezulu, run an educational snake “show” from their home in Orlando West, in Vilakazi Street, Soweto.The street has become a buzzing tourist hub, and when Mngomezulu gives you directions to her house over the phone, she directs you past “Tutu’s house” and the “Nelson Mandela Museum”.The mother and daughter team has become so well-known that they have made international headlines. Lindiwe allows curiosity-seekers to get a close-up look at the non-venomous snakes she keeps in her home, and she drapes them over tourists’ shoulders for a small fee.CCTV’s Julie Scheier has more.last_img read more

Dominick Jackson likely starter at right tackle

Jackson has the inside track on replacing Austin Shepherd at right tackle.This is part five of a 24-part series detailing Alabama’s projected depth chart heading into the 2015 season.TUSCALOOSA – Alabama will have a new starter at right tackle with Austin Shepherd moving on to the NFL. Shepherd started at right tackle for the past two seasons, including all 14 games last season.Based on A-Day and spring practice, Dominick Jackson appears to be the favorite to replace Shepherd. Jackson lined up at right tackle with the first-team offense while Brandon Greene worked at right tackle with the second group. The Two-Deep Dominick Jackson (6-foot-6, 315 pounds)Brandon Greene (6-foot-5, 300 pounds) Starter Dominick Jackson is a mauler in the running game. But an injury in fall camp last season stunted his development as a pass blocker. In junior college, Jackson played in a run-heavy, wing-T offense where pass blocking wasn’t required much. This past spring, Jackson lined up at right tackle for most of the workouts. He still has a ways to go in pass protection, but Jackson made strides during the 15 workouts. Now it’ll be a matter of improving on what he learned, and perfecting his technique. Backup After working at tight end and left tackle in previous years, Brandon Greene now finds himself as the backup right tackle. Greene is an excellent athlete, who could also serve as the tight end in jumbo packages. Grant Hill was expected to factor into the rotation at right tackle, but he missed all of spring practice with an undisclosed illness. Summer arrivals Matt Womack (6-foot-7, 320 pounds) is the only true offensive tackle the Tide signed in 2015. He’s still raw, but with some time, he could develop into a quality left or right tackle, depending on where the team wants to use him. Quotable “He’s done great. You know, obviously coming from more of a triple-option JUCO school, he put a lot on his toes, and he’s a great run-blocker, but it was hard for him to pass block because he hadn’t done it much. I think the emphasis has been for him this year was to sit back more and learn how to play in a more balanced stance in the run and pass game. And I think he’s done a great job of that so far. He still can beat most people off the ball in the run game but he can also protect in the passing game, so he’s done a great job.” — Alabama center Ryan Kelly on Dominick JacksonGo Mobile, Montgomery!

“He has the attributes” – Club chief admits he’s enquired about…

By on

first_imgBought by new investors and building a promising hierarchy with Paulo Sousa as manager and Eduardo Macia as director of football, Bordeaux plan to go relatively big in the summer without overspending. Determined to land a big name if they can after attempting to loan Adrien Silva from Leicester back in January, the Ligue 1 side could turn their attention to Chelsea’s Olivier Giroud, who is far from happy with his game time at Stamford Bridge.Seemingly open to a return to France if that’s what it takes to get some minutes under his belt ahead of the 2020 Euros, the veteran forward might prefer a move to a club playing in a European competition, but if he can’t, there are worse options than Bordeaux.In fact, the club’s sporting director, Hugo Varela, admitted to L’Equipe the Chelsea striker was one of the players they were looking at and had enquired about.Embed from Getty ImagesHe said: “People who know [Olivier Giroud] have told us so much good about him as a player, of course, but also as a person. He has the attributes we are looking for, but he isn’t the only one. Regardless of who comes, we know negotiations will be hard.”Having triggered the one-year extension in the France international’s contract, Chelsea will now be able to get money for Giroud in the summer should any club come knocking.A lot could also rest on how their potential transfer ban pans out. If it’s upheld, they won’t want to let anyone go and risk weakening their squad without being able to reinforce it.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this City-Building Game is a Must-Have.
