There was bitter frustration for Ollie Horgan as his side were held to a draw by a dogged and spirited Cobh Ramblers side at Finn Park.Harps dominated possession but failed to penetrate the well organised Cobh defence.When Harps did break through Paul McVeigh was cynically fouled and Cobh centre-half Craig Burns was lucky not to see red. Cobh threatened on the break but the first-half passed without any clear cut opportunities.Harps upped the tempo in the second-half, with Gareth Harkin exerting greater influence on the game.Ciaran Coll forced two wonderful saves from the Cobh goalkeeper Robbie Birdsall.Birdsall replaced Shane Hallahan who was forced to go off after a collision with Caoimhe Bonner. Harps had another half chance through Kevin McHugh but the striker dragged his effort wide.Cobh almost scored on the counter attack through Martin Deady but Conor Winn made a good stop.The results dents Harps promotion hopes, and they need to beat Galway next week at Finn Park to keep those flagging hopes alive.

29 June 2012A South African schoolgirl’s innovative device for eliminating bacteria on toothbrushes won her rave reviews, a first prize and R17 000 at the 2012 Intel International Science and Engineering Fair in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA in May.Seventeen-year-old Ladysmith High School scholar Chene Mostert was one of five young South African prize winners at the prestigious Fair, which draws the most promising student entrepreneurs, innovators and scientists from around the world every year.According to the Eskom Expo for Young Scientists website, finalists for the Fair are selected from hundreds of affiliated fairs, and their projects are evaluated onsite by more than 1 200 expert judges from every scientific discipline.How clean is your toothbrush?This week, Beeld newspaper reported that Mostert had won the American Dental Association’s first prize of R17 000, and an invitation to return to the US in December to patent her invention.Mostert told Beeld that, while brushing her teeth one night, “I noticed the toilet next to the basin, and remembered reading that cold, wet places are ideal breeding places for bacteria.”She then collected and tested 150 toothbrushes, and found more than 100 different types of bacteria growing on the bristles.“I realised there was nothing on the local market for cleaning toothbrushes, so I designed a plastic box with a rotation system in which toothbrushes can be stored and cleaned,” Mostert told Beeld.Other winnersSouth Africa’s other winners this year, according to the Eskom Expo for Young Scientists website, were:Sasha Holloway, a 15-year-old student from Cape Town’s Springfield Convent School, who received a second place in the marine category and R12 000 in prize money for a project focusing on how the activity rhythms of small crustaceans are linked to tidal patterns and other environmental factors. Sixteen-year-old student Vivienne Dames from Victoria Girls’ High School in Grahamstown, who placed third in the environmental management category, winning R8 000 for a project that offers an environmentally friendly cleaning textile dye safe for agricultural irrigation. Eighteen-year old Hearn Johnson from Vereeniging in Gauteng province, who picked up a third place and R8 000 for a mechanical engineering project to manufacture functional prosthetic limbs more affordably. Sixteen-year old Brandon Ramnath from Christian brothers College in Boksburg, east of Johannesburg, who received a third place and R4 000 from the American Psychological Association for an educational board game that helps high school students to study and achieve better marks.

South Africans are being urged to open their doors to fieldworkers – more than 10 000 of them – going into communities to gather information from 1.3-million households for Statistics South Africa’s 2016 Community Survey, an essential tool in service delivery.From 7 March to 22 April the fieldworkers will gather data on the number of people in South Africa, where they live, their standard of living, and more.The survey was launched on Monday 29 February with a call to citizens to show their support: “Open up your doors and allow the team to come in. South Africa counts because you count.’The launch was held in Mamelodi East near Pretoria, at the Ikageng Community Hall, one of 330 venues around the country where the fieldworkers are being trained.The Community Survey is Stats SA’s second-largest information-gathering exercise after the national census. Last held in 2007, the survey’s main objective is to provide demographic and socioeconomic data at municipal level, to improve government planning.The basic information it gathers includes people’s level of education, the dwellings they live in, statistics on income and ownership of household goods, access to electricity and piped water, and types of toilets. Data is also collected on fertility, cause of death, migration, home ownership and much more.High-tech survey toolsThis year, digital technology will boost the efficiency and size of the survey. Instead of filling out households’ information on paper, fieldworkers will be able to capture it on electronic devices. This “computer-assisted paper interview’, or Capi, method will allow over a million dwellings to be surveyed, up from 300 000 in 2007. And it cuts the cost per dwelling from R2 000 to R200 – a tenfold decrease.Inbuilt controls in the electronic questionnaire will also improve the quality of the data collected. Geographic navigation capabilities will ensure that fieldworkers gather information from the right areas, as selected for the survey.The technology will also speed up the release of the survey results. Census 2011 results were only available a year after the raw data was collected. The 2016 Community Survey results will be released by the end of June – two months after all the households have been surveyed.The speedy delivery of the results will be especially useful for the upcoming municipal elections, to be held countrywide later this year. The survey will give voters objective data on what services have been delivered to what areas, as well as what yet remains to be done.“The citizenry will be able to make decisions based on this enormously helpful body of evidence,’ Stats SA Africa said in a statement. “But more importantly they will know what they as citizens have to do in order to change their lives.’Up-to-date information will also allow municipal officials to plan properly, helping to deepen democracy at the local level. Municipalities will be required to deliver to constituencies that can hold them to account because of the almost instantaneous availability of new data.“Statistics should be embraced as a fundamental part of our democracy, a conduit of trust among citizens, among nations,’ Stats SA said. “Statistics can help to improve the quality of democratic debate by providing reliable indicators, vital for decision-making.’For more information on the survey contact the call centre on 0800 110 248.Source: South African Government News Agency
