first_img8 November 2012South African business confidence in edged up marginally in October despite an unfavourable economic climate, the SA Chamber of Commerce and Industry (Sacci) said on Wednesday.Its Business Confidence Index (BCI) for October showed a 0.3 index point increase to 92, from 91.7 in September.The BCI in October was below its level from the same time last year, but was better than September 2012’s year-on-year performance, which reflected a 6.7 point difference.The BCI gauges the business community’s mood in response to economic conditions. It uses 13 sub-indices which include manufacturing, exports, imports, vehicle sales, construction, share prices, inflation, and the rand exchange rate.Sacci said there were improvements in seven of these sub-indices compared to three improvements in September.Both the financial and real economic sub-indices performed better in October than in the month before.Four changes were negative on a monthly basis, compared to six in September.The chamber said business had been broadly satisfied with the Medium-Term Budget Policy Statement (MTBPS) presented by Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan at the end of last month.“To enhance business confidence, it is cardinal that delivery on the MTBPS framework prioritises those aspects which are key to economic growth.”Sacci said that despite the MTBPS, the outlook for the economy remained uncertain and would respond to critical policy decisions taken by the African National Congress at its leadership conference in December.It also noted concern about export and import trends.“The lack of competitiveness with the rest of the world appears to be a mounting problem. Foreign trade plays an important part in the business mood and reflects the openness of the SA economy.”Sapalast_img read more

Mumbai: Sounding a warning to their rivals, Sacramento Kings coach Luke Walton on Thursday promised high quality basketball as they gear up to take on Indiana Pacers in NBA pre-season friendly games, being held in India for the first time.The two NBA teams will clash in back-to-back games on Friday and Saturday. “We love the group that we have and even though we are a new group, we know how to play basketball, we know how to coach basketball. It’s about getting our team to come together,” Walton, the former LA Lakers forward, said.”No matter who is on the court, it’s going to be very high level basketball because both teams know how important it is to us, and how important it is to the NBA.”Kings player Harrison Barnes also promised to compete hard.”It is our first pre-season game and we want to get into rhythm. This is a start to lot more pre-season games coming here (in India),” Barnes said.Marvin Bagley, 20, said that the team would treat Friday’s clash as a normal game and his aim was to make it to the playoffs.De’Aaron Fox, who is with the Kings for the third season, said the team will have to quickly learn and these games are only meant for that purpose.The Sacramento players, who landed in the city after visiting the iconic Taj Mahal, participated in their training session where they performed their usual drills.Kings’ Indian owner Vivek Randive said he is super excited to be back the city of his origin.”I’m happy to be back in the city of my forefathers. These games are a first step in a long journey. I fully expect these games will continue and hopefully multiple players will come out of India and play in the NBA. And hopefully, we will have more arenas to play these games,” he said.Basketball will be the second most popular sport in India after cricket. Of course, cricket is a national pastime and in the land of (MAK) Pataudi and (Sachin) Tendulkar it will be difficult to replace that but basketball and India are meant to be together. basketballindiana pacersNBAnba in india First Published: October 3, 2019, 9:46 PM ISTlast_img read more

OSU then-sophomore attacker Colin Chell (22) prepares to shoot during a scrimmage against The Hill Academy on Jan. 30. Credit: Kylie Bryant | | For The LanternA stinging loss to No. 19 Marquette followed by a marginal win against Detroit Mercy was not what the then-No. 6 Ohio State men’s lacrosse team had in mind going into the Midwest Lacrosse Classic last weekend. But the now-No. 14 Buckeyes (5-1) have had a full week of practice to improve their play as they prepare to clash with Towson for their first game of the season at Ohio Stadium.The Tigers have stumbled to a sluggish 2-3 record this season with an 0-2 away record. But the Buckeyes aren’t counting them out, especially considering Towson’s previous performances against them.“This is a game that the last four years we’ve played them — twice last year and the two prior to that — you’re looking at two overtime games and two one-goal games,” Ohio State head coach Nick Myers said. “We anticipate it being a really healthy competition, seeing two teams collide and probably being something like that as it has been in the past.”The Buckeyes are 3-1 in the past four years against Towson, with their lone loss coming in the 2016 season by way of a 10-9 overtime decision. Last year, Ohio State managed a 6-3 mid-season win versus the Tigers, and followed that up with a dramatic 11-10 win in the NCAA semifinals, before losing to Maryland in the championship game. Towson brings Colonial Athletic Association player of the week Jon Mazza to the table. He is a 6-foot-4 junior attack who had a standout day for the Tigers in their 8-6 win against the University of Maryland, Baltimore County on Saturday. He recorded five goals and two assists. Myers specifically mentioned Towson junior midfielder Alex Woodall, who has won 72-of-105 draws, as a notable opponent for Ohio State’s own faceoff specialists — freshman midfielder Justin Inacio and sophomore midfielder Christian Feliziani. “They’re very disciplined. They typically don’t do anything to beat themselves, and they’re going to force you to beat them, which for us creates a really good challenge,” Myers said.Myers said Ohio State’s first loss on the road against the Golden Eagles on Friday created a sense of urgency among team members, forcing them to analyze the facets of their game that needed attention before going up against Towson. “I think it just starts with leadership, you know just taking that one-goal-at-a-time approach,” senior attack Colin Chell said. “I think it’s really settling the guys down, making sure we have good offensive possessions, making stops on defense, big ground balls at the [faceoff] and just taking it one possession and one goal at a time.”Saturday’s game will be the team’s first this season playing in Ohio Stadium, a fact that leaves players both excited and humbled.“I’ve been fortunate enough to play in there for three years – this’ll be my fourth year – and you know we’re just excited to get out there,” said Chell. “[We’re] pumped for these young guys to experience the Shoe – it’s a truly incredible experience.”The Buckeyes’ faceoff is slated to begin at 4 p.m. Saturday in Ohio Stadium. read more
