Former England captain Rio Ferdinand has brought his near 20-year playing career to an end following his recent release from QPR. Manchester United then paid £29.1million for his services in July 2002, a world-record fee for a defender, and it was at Old Trafford where he became regarded as one of the finest centre-halves in the world. Ferdinand, who formed an excellent partnership alongside Nemanja Vidic for many years at United, believes that would not have been possible without the help of Sir Alex Ferguson. “Winning trophies over my 13 years at Manchester United allowed me to achieve everything that I desired in football. From a young child to today, that was all I cared about,” he said. “None of that would have been possible, without the genius of one man, Sir Alex Ferguson. His greatest accomplishment in my eyes will always be how he developed us as men, not just as footballers. He will in my opinion, always be the greatest manager in British football history.” There were low moments too. He was given an eight-month suspension at club and international level from January 2004 for missing a drugs test, meaning he missed the rest of the season and that year’s European Championship. He did play in the 2002 and 2006 World Cups but an injury ruled out an appearance in South Africa in 2010, a few months after he was named captain of the side. He announced his international retirement in May 2013 having endured an acrimonious previous 12 months that included being left out of the Euro 2012 squad, leading to rumours of an ill-tempered relationship with John Terry, who at the time was awaiting trial for racially abusing Ferdinand’s brother Rio. After making over 300 appearances with the Red Devils, he linked up with Harry Redknapp again last summer, but it was not be a fitting farewell as QPR were relegated from the top-flight. Saturday’s announcement prompted several former Manchester United and England team-mates to pay tribute. Paul Scholes said: “He was a great player, without a doubt the best centre-half I ever played with.” Michael Owen concurred, saying: “What a player he was, absolute Rolls Royce.” Gary Neville also added his praise on Twitter, saying: “Congratulations to @rioferdy5 on his great career. Best I played with and best pairings I’ve seen with Vida/JT. Covered me very well too!” Jonny Evans, who played alongside Ferdinand on many occasions at Old Trafford, told Press Association Sport: “He was the modern day centre-back that everyone looked to. Training every day and playing with him, he was someone I tried to replicate in my own game. “I had the opportunity to play alongside Rio for a lot of years and he was someone who had the ability to make the game seem so easy. “Anyone who’s played with him would tell you that. “He transmitted that to the rest of the team and he was a great character in the dressing room. “More than anything he was a winner and a leader. His trophy record reflects that” The 36-year-old, who played 81 times for England, was quietly released along with several other players on Wednesday by the recently relegated Rangers and he has decided against finding another club. In a statement, he said: “After 18 years as a professional footballer, I now feel it’s the right time for me to retire from the game that I love. “As a 12-year-old boy, kicking around a football on the Friary Estate in Peckham, I never dreamt that I would play for my boyhood club West Ham, captain Leeds United, win the Champions League with Manchester United, or re-join my first manager Harry Redknapp at Queens Park Rangers. “I will always regard the 81 times that I played for England, with immense pride. These are all treasured memories that will last a lifetime. “I’d like to thank and pay tribute to my wife Rebecca and my family, including my mother and father, for their sacrifices, their encouragement and their advice throughout my career. “And finally, I’d like to thank all the fans from all the clubs – for without them professional football would not exist. I will miss each and every one of you on my Saturday afternoons.” Ferdinand made over 100 appearances for the Hammers in four years, while he was also given his England bow at the age of 19 while still at Upton Park. He built his reputation as a lithe defender capable of starting attacks from the backline, which convinced Leeds to splash out a then British record £18million in November 2000 on the Londoner, who went on to captain the side in the 2001/02 season. Ferdinand made his senior debut as a 17-year-old in May 1996 with West Ham before going on to complete big money moves to Leeds and Manchester United, with whom he won six Premier League titles and the FA Cup and Champions League once. He switched to QPR last year after failing to win a new deal at Old Trafford, but the central defender struggled to hold down a regular first-team place and was absent for the closing stages of the season after his wife Rebecca Ellison died following a battle with cancer on May 1.

12 May 2011A new Trucking Wellness Centre based along the busy truck route in Epping, Cape Town will provide HIV/Aids counselling, testing and condoms to truck drivers using the route. Such centres are planned for major trucking routes throughout South Africa.Services extended to womenSpeaking at the launch of the centre this week, Health Minister Aaron Motsoaledi said the services would also be extended to women and young girls who may be at risk of getting sexually transmitted infections (STIs).All services will be provided after hours in a confidential setting to secure the dignity of the user.Motsoaledi said the department was fully aware of the dangers that long-distance truck drivers were exposed to as a result of being away from their spouses for long periods, and that it was important to provide them with primary healthcare services including counselling to minimise the risks to themselves and their spouses.“I commend the South African Business Coalition on HIV/Aids and Mercedes-Benz SA for working with us in this regard,” Motsoaledi said.High-risk groupsLast year, Motsoaledi visited India to learn about integrating high-risk groups such as long-distance truck drivers into HIV/Aids prevention programmes.“What we saw in India forced us to think much more broadly in our fight against HIV/Aids and rolling out of primary healthcare services,” he said.Motsoaledi has since made a commitment to launch such wellness centres on major trucking routes throughout the country.Source: BuaNews
Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting If you’ve ever used Craigslist before (and who hasn’t?) then you know it can be amazingly useful for some things and a terrible waste of time for others. If you’re a small business looking for an accountant or the best and cheapest way to outsource your HR, for example, then Craigslist might be asking for trouble. Austin-based startup BidModo is launching a public beta today that hopes to simplify this process for small businesses and provide them with better information to make better decisions, instead of simply relying on word of mouth referrals.BidModo is a bit like the offspring of Yelp, the Better Business Bureau and Craigslist, but much shinier. In reality, comparing it to Craigslist is a bit of a disservice, as it offers so much more than text classified ads and email responses.Instead of just putting an ad out there and getting back simple replies, the responses come from registered companies and are organized on a dashboard. Each company has an on-site profile, containing contact information, a company history, provided services, previous clients, certificates and licenses, and a list of references. Each company also has a rating card, which shows how that business rates with its clients on ten different characteristics, from bid timeliness to industry knowledge. If you’ve ever used something like Craigslist, then you realize how hard, or even impossible, getting all of this information would be. You would practically need to hire a private investigator. For end users – those posting the job – the service is entirely free and provides the user with information about bidders, vendor ratings and a dashboard comparing bids. Vendors only pay for selected leads. A vendor dashboard provides information on ROI, monthly sales data, ratings feedback and industry stats. And part of BidModo’s focus is on local business, so service requests only come from the region, which is something we think people, wherever they are, will stand behind.“Prior to BidModo, I ran a video production company,” said founder Toby Schwartz in a press release. “I would regularly hear of companies in town turning to New York or San Francisco to hire for their video needs. And I can’t tell you how many times I’d meet people in Austin who would comment that they wished they knew I was here.”Currently, BidiModo is live nationally, with over 80 cities and connections in more than 100 different categories.
