Daycare runners enjoy prize giving day. (Image: BizCommunity) Sasko, the bakery, launched the Siyasizana Day-care Project for day cares in Tembisa, in Gauteng in late September 2015 – and the pre-school centres are already reaping the rewards.When the project was launched, there was a simple request made of day cares: collect used Sasko bread bags that would otherwise be thrown away, and redeem them for items such as mattresses, backpacks, basins, carpets, chairs and even fridges or stoves.Siyasizana is isiZulu for “we are helping each other”. The project mobilised Tembisa residents to work together to support of their local day cares by all collecting their plastic bags. In total, 300 000 bread bags were collected, exceeding the expectations of all involved.“We looked at the number of bread bags being discarded and the needs of the day cares in Tembisa,” Riaz Badroodeen, the brand manager of Sasko Bread, told SA Goodnews. “By collecting these bags to recycle, we are able to assist the mamas with the basic needs to make their day care environments more comfortable, ultimately benefiting the children in their care.“Collecting bags is a small gesture, with a large impact. With a tidy sum of 300 000 bags, participating day cares will now be able to refrigerate food, prepare cooked meals, provide blankets to keep children warm, and set up tables and chairs during activity and meal times.”THE PROJECT IS ON-GOINGThe success of the project now means it will be rolled out in other parts of the country.“Based on the success of the programme in Tembisa, we plan on rolling out the Sasko Siyasizana Day-care Project in other parts of South Africa. As the programme grows, we’ll continue to look at the needs of the participating day cares and how Sasko can assist,” Badroodeen said.Jane Mokgonyana of Tender Care Day Care was the ultimate winner after collecting 20 000 of the 300 000 packets. Runner-up Matema Mashilo from Bophelong Day Care collected 10 050 bags and was closely followed by Nanini Day Care, where Nomthandazo Mkhondwana collected a total of 9 550 bags.Seven other day cares in Tembisa also won something for their contribution to the project.Sasko Siyasizana Day-care Project is an ongoing programme hosted and implemented by Sasko Bread.

Usually when someone is getting jumped on by a group of men it is a bad thing. For freshman Logan Schuss, though, getting jumped on was a good thing.“At first it wasn’t the best; I couldn’t breathe. But after that it was good,” Schuss said.Schuss was at the center of his team’s overwhelming celebration after Ohio State’s men’s lacrosse team won in overtime Saturday 11-10, after blowing a three-goal lead. Coach Nick Myers constantly encourages team to play a full 60 minutes each time out, but on Saturday they needed a little extra.With the score tied at the end of regulation, the Buckeyes went into sudden-death overtime. One minute and 10 seconds into the overtime, Schuss was able to find the back of the net for the win.“There’s no love for each other, so it’s always nice to come out and beat these kids,” senior goalie Brandon Freeman said.The Buckeyes were able to get the win, but it didn’t come easy.OSU only trailed once in the game when the score was 1-0, but they were never able to pull away.“We knew going into the game there was going to be a run,” Myers said.On multiple occasions, the Buckeyes had two-goal leads and once had a three-goal lead, but Penn State fought back each time. The Buckeyes even had a two-goal lead with less than three minutes to go in the game, but they were unable to close out the Nittany Lions.Myers said he told his team to hang in there. He told them it would take heart and hustle to win the game.OSU was out-shot by Penn State by 24 and won nine fewer face-offs.Schuss was named conference Rookie of the Week last week and he threw his name back in the mix for next week’s award. Along with the game-winning goal, Schuss assisted on four other goals.Along with Schuss, senior Mario Ventiquattro brought his “A” game. Ventiquattro was able to find the back of the net four times.The Buckeyes got the win, but not without injuries. Midway through the fourth quarter, Matt Kawamoto suffered a shoulder injury.With the win, the Buckeyes will take a two-game win streak on the road to play Robert Morris on Tuesday.
Jack Wilshere revealed that Arsene Wenger’s departure from Arsenal in the summer led to his own exitThe 26-year-old midfielder signed for West Ham United on a three-year deal in July as a free agent after ending a 17-year association at Arsenal.Wilshere opted to leave the Emirates Stadium following talks with new manager Unai Emery over his role at the club.But Wilshere admits that Wenger would have convinced him to stay with the Gunners as the Frenchman would have ensured his place in the team.“If Arsene had stayed I would have stayed because of the influence he had in my career and the trust he had in me,” Wilshere told the Islington Gazette.Daniel Farke, From mid-table in the Championship to the Premier League Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Norwich City manager, Daniel Farke, has taken his team from the middle of the table in the English Championship to play with the big boys in the Premier League.“He gave me the armband and respected me a lot. So, I had pretty much agreed to stay. And then he left and that changed things.“Arsene had said to me previously ‘stay and fight your way back into the team’. Because I knew Arsene and knew he had trust in me, I knew I could do that and fight my way into the team.“I knew that if I got myself fit and was training well that Arsene would put me in – and he did.“But things were changing at the club and they were going into a new era and maybe it was time for me to leave as well.”Wilshere, who has made four Premier League starts for West Ham, is currently sidelined with an ankle injury.

Balurghat: Most of the well-known eateries running in Balurghat have no ‘Food Safety Licences’.The matter came to light following joint drives conducted by the officials of the concerned district Food Safety Department and Balurghat Civic Body over the past two days.It may be mentioned that the state Urban Development department has instructed all civic bodies to conduct raids at restaurants and eateries after a racket selling rotten and stale meat was unearthed in Kolkata.
