smart causal BEST OF 4 Vardy has retired from England duty to focus on his club career England’s most successful clubs of the past decade, according to trophies won How the Premier League table could change after the Boxing Day fixtures 4 Forbes list reveals how much Mayweather, Ronaldo and Messi earned this decade impact LATEST FOOTBALL NEWS gameday Tottenham v Brighton LIVE: talkSPORT commentary and team news for Boxing Day opener Every current Premier League club’s best kit from the past decade silverware Gary Cahill has been part of the England set-up for eight years MONEY 4 RANKED Vardy made four appearances in Russia but only started one match, with Harry Kane the undisputed first-choice striker.He believes he is likely to remain on the fringes under Southgate, and reckons it will benefit him more to remain with his club than link up with England for international games.“When you get selected, you want to be playing,” he admitted.“If you’re playing week in, week out for your club, you want to be going to England to play as well.“And if it’s not happening, then for me personally now, at this age, it’s better to be at home, spending that time with my family and training with my club, preparing for the next game after the international break.” “I have played pretty solid over the seven or eight years I have been involved, something again I have been very proud of – I can see now it is kind of going towards a younger generation,” he added.“For me to take a step back now is the perfect time, but at the same time in your football career you never want to shut a door completely.“I have been hugely honoured to play for my country and I would never shut the door, if I was ever needed in the future then obviously I’m there.“Such is my relationship with the manager, he was fantastic at the end of the tournament, I had a good chat with him and he could see where I was coming from, understood the situation but at the same time I wouldn’t want to totally shut the door.“He knows my opinion and I know his, I have said that, in the future, if there are injuries or I am needed to come and play then of course I am available.“But in terms of the next meeting coming up and the friendlies where maybe they are looking at other players, I think it is probably more beneficial for them to be playing than me travelling there.” Every time Ally McCoist lost it on air in 2019, including funny XI reactions Every Championship club’s best signing of the decade, including Taarabt and Dack Jamie Vardy and Gary Cahill both effectively called time on their international careers on Tuesday.The duo, part of the England squad which reached the semi-finals of the 2018 World Cup, have informed manager Gareth Southgate they do not wish to be selected going forward. Which teams do the best on Boxing Day in the Premier League era? Best clips, calls and talkSPORT moments of 2019, feat Hearn, McCoist and more Top nine Premier League free transfers of the decade REVEALED Southgate will name his first squad since the finals this Thursday, for the clashes against Spain and Switzerland later this month.Vardy has decided to all-but retire from the national team after scoring seven goals in 26 appearances, saying he will only play for the Three Lions again if there is an injury crisis.Cahill, meanwhile, says he is stepping back after representing England on 61 occasions and has not completely closed the door on a return.It seems highly unlikely, however, that either player will be selected by Southgate again.Leicester City striker Vardy, 31, told the Guardian: “I’m not getting any younger and you can see, to be fair to the gaffer, he wants to make it more youthful, which obviously had its benefits during the World Cup – we got to the semi-finals and finished fourth, which is equal to the furthest we have ever been on foreign soil.“So I just said to Gareth that I think it’s probably best from now on, especially with the way he wants to go, to bring youngsters in who he thinks have got the ability and start nurturing them into international football.” Jamie Vardy has decided to end his England career after 26 caps and seven goals possible standings Vardy added: “I explained it all to Gareth and he was fine with my decision.“I mentioned it to him after the World Cup had finished, out in Russia, and then I spoke to him on the phone a couple of weeks ago.“He let it die down a bit, so that I could have a bit more time to think, and then rang me up just to make sure I wasn’t just taking the mickey in Russia. But I hadn’t changed my mind. G“Gareth said that he felt I still had a lot to offer, and we’ve not shut the door completely. If the worst came to happen and everyone was injured, then obviously I wouldn’t say no.”Cahill captained the Three Lions several times, with the 32-year-old part of the squad at the 2014 and 2018 World Cups as well as Euro 2016. 4 Gary Cahill featured just once for England at the 2018 World Cup highlights
31 July 2008Woolworths saw the introduction of reusable bags in 2004 as an opportunity to not only preserve the environment, but also to support new enterprise development, with their fabric bags being made for them by local factories – one of which started for the specific purpose of making Woolworths bags.It forms part of the company’s strategy to source products locally, where quality, quantity and consistency meet the expectations of their customers – while also enabling the company to support and encourage local business and entrepreneurship – which it has also identified as a key priority.“In line with our Good Business journey, Woolworths is committed to identifying opportunities for suppliers to grow with the business,” Woolworths general merchandise director Craig Ludwig said in a statement this week.“In addition to giving suppliers access to the marketplace, Woolworths also supports emerging suppliers with training that covers best practice in technical and business management skills, organisational development and financing where possible.”Woolworths Good business journey is a comprehensive five-year plan announced in 2007 to help people and planet by incorporating a series of challenging targets and commitments centred on four key priorities, including accelerating transformation, driving social development, enhancing Woolworths environmental focus and addressing climate change.IsikhwamaCurrently, Woolworths’ main supplier of reusable bags is Isikhwama, which was established in Maitland, Cape Town to produce bags for Woolworths and employ semi-skilled and unskilled people who were previously out of work.Isikhwama owner Trevor Pothercy said that while starting any new business was a challenge, their close partnership with Woolworths had helped his company to grow from strength to strength, and that it now produced over a million reusable fabric bags for Woolworths each year – providing employment for 70 people.“The success of the project has exceeded our most optimistic projections,” Pothercy said. “We have been able to train unskilled workers through this project – arguably the most vulnerable members of the labour sector.”Greater Uitenhage Sewing CooperativeThe second supplier, the Greater Uitenhage Sewing Cooperative (Gusco), is an amalgamation of three informal community sewing groups, formed as a result of the Uitenhage Despatch Development Initiative.The company, based in Uitenhage in the Nelson Mandela Bay Metro, has been producing and supplying reusable fabric bags for Woolworths since September 2005.Woolworths was Gusco’s first big retail client and continues to be the anchor client, buying about 260 000 reusable bags from the company each year – and enabling the cooperative to employ 27 full-time machinists and a number of seasonal employees.Strong partnerships needed for growthNafeesa Dinie, head of the Uitenhage Despatch Development Initiative’s small, medium and micro enterprises unit, said they hoped to grow Gusco’s business by attracting and securing additional contracts, as well as to diversify the production line.The initiative has also held initial discussions with Woolworths regarding future potential growth opportunities.She said that through forging strong partnerships and implementing a structured best practice business development model, a solid business foundation has been established, resulting in a successfully and commercially viable cooperative contributing to the local economy and job creation.“The ladies of Gusco have come a long way from being unemployed, to being business owners and this has been achieved in a relatively short period with the support of all stakeholders,” Dinie said. “Woolworths was key to this success, and this clearly signals Woolworths’ commitment to support and contribute to sustainable community enterprise development in our country.”SAinfo reporter Would you like to use this article in your publicationor on your website?See: Using SAinfo material

At the opening of the World Humanitarian Summit (WHS) in Istanbul today, United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon joined the President of Turkey, relief activists and international celebrities to urge the global community to shape a different future for the world.UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon opens the first-ever World Humanitarian Summit in Istanbul, TurkeyCredit/Copyright: UNOCHA“We are all here because global humanitarian action is unprecedentedly strained,” Mr. Ban told thousands of participants attending the opening ceremony, which featured creative performances and inspiring words by renowned stars including Forest Whitaker, Ashley Judd and Daniel Craig.“I proposed this Summit four years ago out of concern for rising humanitarian needs and declining political will. Today, the urgency has only grown,” the Secretary-General stressed.As part of a moving spectacle that emulated dust storms and earthquakes, and projected images of authentic footage inspired by personal human stories, Malian singer Inna Modja kicked off the historic Summit with a soulful poem.The United Nations estimates that a record number of people – 130 million – currently need aid to survive. More people have been forced from their homes than at any time since the end of the Second World War.“This is a 21st century United Nations gathering,” the Mr. Ban said describing the Summit, adding that its Agenda for Humanity, the document he recently issued to guide discussions and action, is based on three years of consultations with 23,000 people in more than 150 countries.Over the next two days in the Turkish capital, WHS is bringing together stakeholders who have a vested interest in improving the global humanitarian system, including more than 65 Heads of State and Government as well as leaders from the public and private sectors.The UN chief underlined that the world is looking to them for commitments to five core responsibilities: • Prevent and end conflict • Respect rules of war • Leave no one behind • Working differently to end need • Invest in humanity“We are here to shape a different future,” Mr. Ban concluded. “Today we declare: We are one humanity, with a shared responsibility.”Meanwhile, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan expressed hope that the Summit would lead to “auspicious outcomes” for hundreds of millions of people struggling to sustain their lives under great distress.“Pain knows no colour, race, language or religion,” Mr. Erdogan said, noting that it was with that in mind that Turkey carried out its aid and development projects in more than 140 countries around the world, hosting more than three million refugees from Syria and Iraq.“We will never close our doors or our borders to people,” he insisted. “We as leaders and responsible individuals of the international community can only succeed if we work under common principles and goals.”The President also stressed that Turkey would not stop pursuing “blood-shedding dictators” and will ensure that crimes against humanity do not go unpunished.Prior to these remarks, survivors of humanitarian catastrophes — both human-made and natural — spoke to the audience in emotional addresses, recounting their ordeals and how they overcame them with the desire to now support others.Victor Ochen, a former child solider from northern Uganda, spoke about growing up with violence everywhere around him. At the age of 13, he chose a different path, forming a peace club in his refugee camp to discourage children and young people from joining the armed forces. “Peace comes from within,” he said. “Be human and act human.”Victoria Arnaiz-Lanting described her experience surviving Typhoon Haiyan which hit the Philippines in 2013, saying that it was a miracle she survived. She lost many friends and colleagues in the storm, dead bodies filled the streets, and trees and electric posts fell to the ground like match sticks. The typhoon also made thousands of people internally displaced, who, driven by hunger and grief, looted the supermarkets.And yet, she expressed how unbelievable it was to see how quickly people started to rebuild their lives. The Philippines Red Cross and victims themselves began treating the wounded and liaising with the Government and other humanitarian actors.“This is humanity in action,” she said, noting that disasters affected more than 200 million people a year and that preparedness must become a way of life. She encouraged every nation, large and small, to invest in local actors.Speaking of the Syrian conflict, Adeeb Ateeq said war has inflicted much suffering on the people. Mines have blown apart men, women, and children, with many afraid to seek medical care for fear of encountering other unexploded ordnance.“I have decided to harness my experience of demining to end the loss of life,” he said, describing a volunteer team he has established to educated young people about the lethal nature of unexploded land mines.Recalling his own experience of losing a leg after encountering an unexploded device, Mr. Ateeq explained how he had been bound to a wheelchair until being fitted with an artificial limb; this led him to try to help others.“My goal is to save the lives of innocent civilians,” he said, calling on all to provide assistance in that quest and in safeguarding humanity.
