Proteas spend Mandela Day with children

first_img20 July 2015The Proteas, South Africa’s national cricket team currently on tour in Bangladesh, teamed up with the International Children’s Palliative Care Network (ICPCN) to spread some Madiba Magic among young cricket fans in Chittagong.The youngsters, all born with life-limiting conditions, were treated to a once-in-a- lifetime opportunity of spending the afternoon with the Proteas in celebration of Nelson Mandela International Day, at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Cricket Stadium.The 18 children were accompanied by their parents and spent a day of fun with the team. The children are patients at the Paediatric Oncology Centre at Chittagong Medical College Hospital. They watched the team train, and received ICPCN wristbands and NOW campaign cricket bats as they eagerly waited to meet the players.Mandela Day is a day set aside annually to celebrate Mandela’s life and legacy, and all South Africans and citizens of the world are encouraged to make acts of kindness to help change the world for the better.Proteas assistant coach Adrian Birrell, one of the drivers of team culture, said humility and compassion – keys traits of the late leader – were the founding qualities by which the Proteas lived.“We knew that back home most South Africans would be spending 67 minutes doing good deeds in Nelson Mandela’s memory and we felt we wanted to share that Madiba legacy with the people of Chittagong,” he said. “The Proteas are all about higher purpose and we felt it would be a great opportunity to give back to the community and to contribute towards a worthwhile cause.”A tour could get tedious between moving from the hotel, training and playing, Birrell explained, so it was nice to do something fun and different. “These children are suffering from terminal illness; it’s tragic for them and their families. It was humbling to see the excitement and smiles on their faces.“Hopefully that makes some kind of difference to their lives. Hopefully they forgot about their plight in these few minutes that they were with us signing autographs and interacting with the players.“I think the most important thing for us was to bring smiles to their faces by spreading some Madiba magic to those less fortunate than us. We tried to share a little bit of what the Proteas stood for and gave an unconditional act of kindness. I think it’s important for all South Africans to give where we can, if we can all do a little bit it can go a long way.”Watch the Proteas with the children in Chittagong:Speaking of the work the network does, media and marketing officer, Lorne Sithole, said: “The ICPCN’s mission is to achieve the best quality of life and care for children and young people with life-limiting conditions, a critical necessity especially in an impoverished country like Bangladesh. It is a dream come true for many of the children here from the Chittagong Medical Hospital.“Bangladesh is one of the poorest countries in the world and access to medical care, information and resources is limited. We hope this day will at least have given these brave children something to smile about.”The Proteas’ two-Test series against Bangladesh starts tomorrow. They had mixed success in the limited overs portion of their tour, winning the T20 series 2-0 but losing the One Day Internationals 2-1 to the home team.Source: News24Wirelast_img read more

See the NASA Mars InSight seismometer level itself out

first_imgEnlarge ImageNASA’s InSight mission set this seismometer on the ground in December. NASA/JPL-Caltech NASA’s InSight mission has a way of making you feel like you’re standing on Mars. Some vivid new images show the latest steps in deploying the lander’s seismometer as the space agency gets ready to listen for marsquakes.InSight gently placed the seismometer on the Mars surface in December using a robotic arm, but it was sitting at a slight angle. On Sunday, NASA shared a before-and-after look at the seismometer leveling itself out. You can see the cable that connects the instrument to the lander. Sci-Tech 0 Share your voice With my seismometer safely at rest on #Mars, I was able to release my hold on it. There’s still some more instrument prep to do, but it’s looking good. pic.twitter.com/FlEsAKjzTT— NASA InSight (@NASAInSight) January 4, 2019 I’ve released the slack in my cable so it won’t flutter as much in the wind and pull on the seismometer. Keeping it still will help as I listen for #marsquakes. pic.twitter.com/8NJ9S4gD9i— NASA InSight (@NASAInSight) January 7, 2019 To get ready to record #marsquakes, my seismometer has been leveling itself out and adjusting its internal sensors. It’s always good to be centered and balanced. pic.twitter.com/2A6mpeLNKj— NASA InSight (@NASAInSight) January 6, 2019 Tags 22 Photos The instrument moves slightly between the two frames of the GIF. The InSight team reports the seismometer is adjusting its internal sensors. It’ll also receive a wind and thermal shield to protect it while it listens for activity from the interior of Mars.On Friday, NASA showed how the lander’s arm and claw was able to let go of the seismometer before it leveled itself.  These little Mars movies are giving space fans a fabulous view of InSight’s delicate and ambitious work. We can soon look forward to learning more about the red planet’s stomach rumblings.  NASA InSight lander rocks its journey to Mars: A view in pictures Post a comment InSight landed on Mars in late November to investigate the planet’s vital signs and learn more about how rocky planets are formed. “The seismometer is the highest-priority instrument on InSight: We need it in order to complete about three-quarters of our science objectives,” said Bruce Banerdt, InSight principal investigator.NASA made an additional adjustment to its seismometer deployment. The InSight team tweeted on Monday that the mission has “released the slack in my cable so it won’t flutter as much in the wind and pull on the seismometer.” NASA Spacelast_img read more
