Funny clip: Arsenal hero forgot which country his Invincibles team-mate is from

first_imgThey may have been team-mates in arguably Arsenal’s greatest ever side, but that doesn’t mean Ray Parlour can recall where Lauren is from!Parlour scored a memorable 2002 FA Cup final goal for the Gunners, but he couldn’t remember where the man who was playing right-back in that team hails from, when asked the question on talkSPORT’s Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast show.The former Arsenal midfielder is a regular on the show, and when his Invincibles team-mate Lauren joined Ray and Alan to discuss all things Arsenal, naturally the subject turned to the club’s glory days.But when Alan asked Ray where Lauren was from, the Romford Pele could only offer up, “Spanish? Spanish-y?”Listen to the funny clip in the audio player above.To be fair to Ray, although Lauren was born in Cameroon and represented the Indomitable Lions national team, he was raised in Spain from an early age after his family moved to Europe.last_img read more


first_imgA view up the lake from the boathouse at Glenveagh Castle.A GOVERNMENT Minister has today confirmed that visitor services – including bus drivers and guides – at Glenveagh National Park are under review and may be outsourced.Jimmy Deenihan TD, Minister for Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht, insisted that there are no plans – whatsoever – to sell national parks or to privatise the management, preservation or conservation of these parks.But he said more outside contractors may be brought in to run other services in the parks. Minister Deenihan commented: “There are six national parks in Ireland. They are exceptional places. They are owned by the people. They are held in trust by those living today for future generations. This will not change. There are no plans whatsoever to sell these parks. There are no plans whatsoever to privatise the management, preservation and conservation of these parks.”The core work of the national park staff including regional management and rangers is to secure and preserve the national parks so that they can be enjoyed by visitors and conserved for future generations.Staff of the Department of Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht’s National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) undertake this work at the six national parks and also oversee a network of nature reserves, Natural Heritage Areas (NHAs) and Special Areas of Conservation (SACs) across the State.His statement said visitors to national parks can also enjoy other services, including education services, catering services, recreational services, transport services, viewings of historic properties at some of the sites, and other services. For many years, some of these services have been directly provided by private individuals and companies such as the provision of boat trips, pony trekking or jarvey trips. Other services have been provided – on a fixed term contract to the Department – by contractors, for example catering facilities at national parks in Killarney, Glenveagh, Connemara, and Ballycroy, Co Mayo. Cleaning contracts at Ballycroy, Connemara, Glenveagh and Killarney National Parks are also in place.Minister Deenihan said his Department is always looking at ways to improve the tourism and education dimensions and visitor services at national parks. For example, the Department – in partnership with a Donegal based enterprise – has introduced an innovative service that allows visitors the opportunity to hire electric and hybrid bicycles at Glenveagh National Park visitor centre, from where they can explore the national park and the surrounding countryside in a low impact and environmentally friendly way.The Department is also examining ways to expand education services on an outreach basis by working with agencies such as the Heritage Council.“In this way, augmenting the facilities that are available to visitors to the national parks through working and co-operating with others is not a new phenomenon,” said the statement.“The priority is to manage, preserve and conserve the national parks, to provide excellent access and services to the public, and to do so whilst making the best use of the resources we receive from the taxpayer. As has always been the case, the Department will continue to explore the potential of using alternative models to augment its visitor services and nature education services nationally.” MINISTER CONFIRMS VISITOR SERVICES AT GLENVEAGH UNDER REVIEW was last modified: April 14th, 2014 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Chef cooks up a way out of trouble

first_imgKelvin Joel (far right) and his group of student chefs at the food garden at the Westbury Youth Center. (Image: Johannesburg Culinary and Pastry School) There is nothing like someone who has done wrong and then turns his life around and does something right to make sure future generations do not walk he path he walked.Such a person is Kelvin Joel, pastry chef, co-owner of the Johannesburg Culinary and Pastry School, and recipient of the South African Chefs Association’s 2010 Achievement Award.A youngster with no guidance, Joel got mixed up in drugs in his youth. But he is now making sure the youngsters in his home suburb of Westbury, in western Johannesburg, do not get enticed by the allure of selling drugs to escape poverty.“Everyone who lived there had challenges at home and school,” he said, “even the community itself. I got an opportunity to change my life.”Joel started his Chefs Project in 2013 to give these and other troubled youth an opportunity to change their lives through cooking, if they wanted to do so. “Basically, cheffing changed my life. There are youngsters out there who would also like to do it, but don’t have the opportunity. So we want to create the opportunity for them to excel.“We just try to guide them to make it easier for them to understand. In the fast-paced industry everyone just works to get their job done, and interns don’t get a chance to ask questions. Now they can see if they really want to be a chef, acquire a skill and then have something to sell.”Watch Joel at explain his childhood and the origins of the Johannesburg Culinary and Pastry School :Are you playing your part in transforming South Africa?
