Wilfried Bony celebrates scoring for Swansea 1 Wilfried Bony is excited by the direction Swansea are going in after he penned a new deal with the Welsh club.The in-form forward put pen to paper on a one-year extension last week, committing his future to the Swans until the summer of 2018.The 25-year-old was on target at the weekend in the narrow 2-1 defeat against Manchester City and that goal took him to five for the season for the club that is sitting snuggly in seventh.“I was really happy to sign a longer contract,” Bony said.“I have a great relationship with the club. I like the feeling within the club and also the direction I believe the club is heading.“Signing an extended contract means I can just focus on Swansea and continue giving everything I have for this club.“I enjoy it here – I have a good relationship with my team-mates, the coaches and our fans.”
Martin Odegaard 1 Hoffenheim are the latest club to join the hunt for Liverpool and Manchester United target Martin Odegaard.The 15-year-old has been attracting the interest of numerous clubs across Europe.The starlet, who has already made his debut for Norway, has spent time at Liverpool in recent weeks.He has also visited United, Bayern Munich and Real Madrid as he weighs up his future.But now Bundesliga club Hoffenheim have thrown their name into the hat in the hope they can fight off interest from big clubs across Europe to lure the teen sensation to Germany.“Martin Odegaard is very good,” Hoffenheim’s sporting director Alexander Rosen Rosen told Eurosport.“He is a phenomenon, but I seriously believe that we could be a very nice stepping stone for Martin.”
As he talked to his friend, a Latino wearing a white T-shirt approached, shot him in the upper torso then walked away, heading east.After he was shot, Labbe said Estrada walked over to the driver’s side door and collapsed.Montebello Police Chief Garry Couso-Vasquez said as the shooting happened several vehicles drove past Estrada and the Camry. Detectives also believe some pedestrians in the area may have seen or heard the shooting.Labbe said there were at least four cars that drove past.“Two of them had to swerve around the victim,” he added.Relatives said Estrada wasn’t a gang member and worked as a fire alarm technician, installing alarms for the past seven years. They said he liked to have fun and go clubbing. He was a good dancer, would rap with his friends and made sure to bring food and drinks to gatherings.His mother said he was generous.“He was a very good person. People will remember him,” Arreola said.Ramos was his only sibling.“If anybody saw something, call the police and give information to bring this guy into custody,” Ramos said.He believes the shooter has done this before and would likely do it again.“There is no human being who would walk up to somebody and put a bullet in (them),” Ramos said.Estrada will be buried Monday. The funeral is private.Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Fernando Valle at (323) 887-1253 or Detective Haydee Garcia at (323) firstname.lastname@example.org(562) 698-0955, Ext. 3026160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

His fiancee, Claudia Hernandez, described Estrada as lovable, kind and an amazing man who lit up a room when he came in.“He deserves justice. He knew if this happened to anybody else, he would come forward,” Hernandez said.Estrada turned 25 on July 12. He went out with friends on Saturday. His older brother, Luis Ramos, thinks he was just having fun and came over to Montebello with his co-workers.They dropped off a friend who lived in the area, said Detective Ty Labbe of the sheriff’s Homicide Bureau.At about 3:20 a.m., Estrada was walking on the sidewalk in the 1900 block of West Whittier Boulevard. He later stood outside the passenger side door of a friend’s black Toyota Camry parked at the curb. MONTEBELLO — As Melvin Estrada stood talking to a friend early Saturday, a man walked up to him, shot him once, then casually strolled away.Estrada stumbled and collapsed in the middle of Whittier Boulevard. The 25-year-old Los Angeles man died at the scene.On Thursday, sheriff’s homicide detectives released a security video that shows Estrada’s killer walking away and several cars driving by. Montebello police, Estrada’s mother and his fiancee pleaded for witnesses to come forward.“If you saw anything, say everything you saw. Please,” said Estrada’s mother, Maria Arreola, in Spanish. “Because the death of a son hurts through to the bone.”

Aproximadamente 96% das exportaçoes do pais sao transportadas por barco e os sete portos comerciais sao a via de comunicaçao comercial entre a África do Sul e os seus parceiros na África austral, como tambem os centros para trafego de e para a Europa, Ásia, Americas e as costas oriental e ocidental de África.A Transnet National Ports Authority (autoridade portuaria nacional), empresa do estado, controla todos os portos do pais: Richards Bay e Durban, na provincia de KwaZulu-Natal, East London e Port Elizabeth, no Cabo Oriental, e Mosel Bay, Cidade do Cabo e Saldanha, no Cabo Ocidental.Durban e o porto com mais trafego em toda a África e que tem maior capacidade para receber contentores na África austral, ao passo que Richard’s Bay e o maior terminal de carvao a granel do mundo.

Em 2008, o governo afirmou que despenderia de 19,5 bilioes de rands por ano nos proximos quatro anos para aumentar a capacidade dos seus portos e ferrovias, com quase metade dessa verba sendo destinada a industria de carga por ferrocarril.A South African Rail Commuter Corporation (SARCC) (empresa sul africana para os viajantes diarios) opera os serviços do Metrorail na Cidade do Cabo, na provincia do Cabo Oriental, Durban, e a grande metropole de Joanesburgo e Pretoria, com enfase sobretudo nos sul africanos de mais baixos recursos.Os turistas e os endinheirados podem viajar no Blue Train (Comboio Azul), um dos comboios mais luxuosos do mundo, enquanto que a Shosholoza Meyl transporta cerca de 4 milhoes de passageiros todos os anos entre as maiores cidades do pais.Os serviços ligam ainda a outros destinos na África Austral no Zimbabwe, Moçambique e Suazilandia.Lifaçao Ferroviaria Rapida GautrainA Gautrain, uma rede de comboio rapida de 80 km, ligara Joanesburgo, Pretoria e o Aeroporto Internacional OR Tambo, facilitando e aliviando a congestao da auto-estrada Joburg-Pretoria, proprocionando a quem viaja diariamente uma alternativa segura e viavel em vez da viagem de carro.Este projecto de 25 bilioes de rands e uma parceria publico-privada entre o governo da provincia de Gauteng e a Bombelo Concession Company, um consorio franco-canadense-sul-africano.
