Bournemouth upset Man United

first_img IMPROVING SEASON Bournemouth’s first season in the top flight is starting to get better and better. The little coastal club that almost dropped out of the country’s professional leagues six years ago beat Chelsea 1-0 away last weekend for what ranked as the biggest win in its 116-year history. Other results: Norwich 1 Everon 1; Crystal Palace 1 Southampton 0; Sunderland 0 Watford 1; West Ham 0 Stoke City 0. MANCHESTER, England (AP): First it was criticism of Manchester United’s playing style. Then came the team’s limp exit at the Champions League group stage. Yesterday, it was a loss to tiny Bournemouth in one of the Premier League’s biggest-ever mismatches. The problems are stacking up for under-pressure United manager Louis van Gaal in his second season in charge of England’s biggest club. United – depleted by a wretched run of injuries to senior players – conceded directly from a corner in the second minute on their way to a humbling 2-1 loss at Bournemouth, the latest shock result in a season of surprises in the Premier League. Earlier yesterday, Manchester City had needed a huge deflected goal just to get a 2-1 home win over Swansea, who are without a manager and on one of the worst run of results in the league. City went top on goal difference, for one day at least.last_img read more

R1bn housing incentive fund

first_img12 February 2010 The government plans to set up a R1-billion guarantee fund to encourage South Africa’s banks and construction companies to develop new products to meet the country’s housing demand. Delivering his State of the Nation address in Parliament, Cape Town on Thursday, President Jacob Zuma said a key new initiative would be to accommodate people whose salaries were too high to get government subsidies, but who earned too little to qualify for normal banks mortgage. This would form part of the government’s work towards upgrading informal settlements in South Africa and providing proper service and land tenure to half-a-million households by 2014. The government is to set aside over 6 000 hectares of “well-located” public land for low-income and affordable housing, Zuma added.Rural development The government was also busy rolling out various pilot projects under the Comprehensive Rural Development Programme. Since the launch of the first pilot project in Giyani, Limpopo province in 2009, 231 houses had been built, while access to health and education had improved, and infrastructure had been provided to support agricultural development and training to the community. Similar programmes were being rolled out in seven other sites across the country, Zuma said. By 2014, the government aimed to have sites in 160 wards. The aim was for 60% of households at these sites to be able to meet their requirements through production of their own food. Source: BuaNewslast_img read more
