Hitchen said: “I am thrilled that we have secured a CEO with Rachel’s combination of investment experience, client focus and integrity. I am confident that, together with our shareholders, we will build BCPP into a high quality, long-term-oriented asset owner.”Councillor John Weighell, chair of the North Yorkshire Pension Fund and BCPP’s shareholders’ committee, added: “The shareholding local authorities are unanimous in welcoming Rachel’s appointment.“We should also like to join her in thanking the project team of local government officers for the excellent work they have done and continue to do on BCPP’s behalf. We couldn’t have got here without their dedication, wisdom and perseverance and their employers’ commitment to make this happen.”Before joining Royal London in 2011, Elwell was a consultant at PricewaterhouseCoopers. She is a qualified actuary.The eight LGPS pools are expected to begin accepting money from their founder pension schemes from April, although some are well ahead of this deadline. The Border to Coast Pensions Partnership (BCPP) is the latest of the UK’s local authority pension fund pools to appoint its CEO.Rachel Elwell will join the group in December from Royal London where she has worked since 2011 as staff pensions director and investment office director.BCPP has been set up to pool the assets of 12 local government pension schemes (LGPS) across England, with total assets of roughly £43bn. It appointed outgoing RPMI Railpen chief executive Chris Hitchen as its chair in July.In a statement announcing Elwell’s appointment, BCPP said it was to open an office in Leeds and build a team of roughly 70 in-house staff for its asset management operations. Elwell will be responsible for ensuring the company is able to start operations in 2018 in line with the UK government’s timetable for LGPS asset pooling.

Then the two players who carried Wisconsin to the triumph, and two future NBA players according to Arizona head coach Sean Miller, embraced one another after a hard day’s work. Not to be forgotten about, several former Badgers’ greats, including quarterback Russell Wilson, weighed in on the big win. Speaking of Dekker, Rodgers was celebrating arguably the coldest blooded three-pointer in the history of cold blooded three-pointers.Here’s the shot, and don’t forget to drop the mic on your way out, Sam. A John Candy referenced seemed appropriate to salute Dekker, a native of Sheboygan, Wisconsin.#Badgers pic.twitter.com/4yDIzUUox3— Scotty G (@ScottGordon__) March 29, 2015Just a little more than 17 seconds later of game time and Wisconsin had knocked off the Wildcats and secured its second straight Final Four berth.And what better way to celebrate than a selfie courtesy of forward Nigel Hayes, who was more than OK with snapping the candid shot. As mayhem broke out on State Street for the second straight year following Wisconsin’s win over Arizona, the Badgers trended in a big way on Twitter in the wake of an unprecedented second straight Final Four.The cherry on top of the monumental win came in the form of quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who has become a regular at Wisconsin’s tournament games over the last two years.Rodgers wasn’t about to discount double check, he was just really happy after Sam Dekker put the nail in the coffin with less than 20 seconds left. Final Four!!! #OnWisconsin #NotDoneYet— Jon Leuer (@JonLeuer30) March 29, 2015No one could possibly forget last year’s bench mob leader Dan Fahey.https://twitter.com/DanFahey10/status/581975962029555712And as LA is right next to Hollywood, there was naturally a celebrity sighting or two.If I was going to change my avatar, it was going to be for something Stuart would have loved.

The Cameroon Football Federation (FECAFOOT) has announced the departure of Indomitable Lions head coach, Clarence Seedorf, and his assistant, Patrick Kluivert, from their position as head and assistant coaches of the team.The decision was announced on Tuesday by the Cameroon Football Federation after discussions between that entity and the nation’s Sports Ministry.The decision was made public via a statement from the federation’s official Twitter handle which said:“… after consultations among the members of the federation’s Executive Committee and with Sports Ministry, the Federation, from today, has decided to terminate the appointments of head coach, Clarence Clyde Seedorf, and his assistant, Patrick Stephan Kluivert, based on certain clauses in their respective contracts following the early exit of the Indomitable Lions.” Seedorf’s future had been under question ever since the team lost 3-2 to Nigeria in the Round of 16 of the AFCON tournament in Egypt on July 6.On July 15, Cameroon’s Sports Minister, Narcisse Mouelle Kombi, said that Seedorf needed to be sacked and called on the Cameroon Football Federation to activate a clause in his contract to make this possible.He said that Seedorf “was not fit for the job” as the team could not get to the semi-finals of the AFCON.Seedorf was appointed in August 2018 and he helped the team qualify for the 2019 AFCON tournament in Egypt.

23 January 2006Tourists visiting the palace of South Africa’s famous royal mystic, Rain Queen Modjadji, will soon be able to stay overnight.Spokesperson for the Modjadji royal family, Clement Modjadji, has confirmed plans to build a hotel in Khetlhakong village near the spectacularly scenic forestry town of Modjadjiskloof (formerly Duiwelskloof, or Devil’s Ravine) in Limpopo province’s subtropical Letaba Valley.“We are negotiating with local companies and the municipality with a view to raising funds to build the hotel,” Modjadji said. He declined to give further details, saying negotiations had reached a sensitive stage.He added that the project was expected to create hundreds of jobs in the local community.Cycad forest, Ivory RouteThe Modjadji royal palace, one of Limpopo’s best known tourist attractions, is located near the Royal Modjadji Nature Reserve, home to a cycad forest that boasts some of the oldest and largest specimens in the world.Cycads are cone-bearing evergreen plants dating back to the Stone Age. The Modjadji cycad or Encephelartos transvenosus is the highest in the world, with recorded specimens reaching 13 metres.The palace is also part of Limpopo’s African Ivory Route, which includes 3.6-million hectares of national parks, nature reserves, game farms, cultural camps and historical places associated with various African myths and legends.Clement Modjadji said a hotel was long overdue, with hundreds of tourists visiting the royal palace every year.The Greater Letaba municipality has also set aside R160 000 to build a cultural village in Khetlhakong village. To be called Modjadji’s Kraal, the village will showcase Balobedu culture, technology and art.The Rain QueensQueen Makobo Modjadji VI, who died aged 27 on 12 June 2005, was the youngest in a line of matriarchal monarchs stretching back at least 200 years. Her short reign began on 16 April 2003 when she succeeded her grandmother, Mokope Modjadji V.Rider Haggard’s 19th-century novels King Solomon’s Mines and She first drew the world’s attention to the legendary Rain Queen of the Balobedu people.Believed to have been bestowed with the power to control the rains and rivers, the Rain Queen’s mystic powers kept her small tribe safe from regional wars of conquest for two centuries.The website Prominent People gives “one of the most acceptable versions” of the many legends told about the origins of Queen Modjadji.According to this version, “an old Karanga chief from the Kingdom of Monomotapa (south-eastern Zimbabwe) was told by his ancestors in the 16th century that he must impregnate his daughter, Dzugundini. This would give the princess rainmaking powers, which would expand the wealth of his kingdom. This princess was called Modjadji, or ‘ruler of the day’.“Early in the 19th century Modjadji’s tribe, known as the Balobedu, moved further south into the fertile Molototsi Valley, where they founded present day Ga-Modjadji.“According to custom, the queen must eschew public functions. She communicates to her people via male councillors and indunas, village headmen. In November of every year she directs the annual rainmaking ceremony at her royal compound in Khetlhakone village.“The queen never marries, but she bears children by her close relatives. She is cared for by her ‘wives’, which are sent from the many villages in Ga-Modjadji. When she is nearing death, she appoints her eldest daughter as her successor and then she ingests poison.“For centuries many tribes have respected the Queen’s powers. Even Shaka Zulu sent his top emissaries to request the Queen’s blessings …”According to Prominent People, University of South Africa archaeologist Sidney Miller has excavated the ruins of the original royal kraal, finding stone foundations, pottery and middens.The ruins, according to the website, “bear resemblance to the famous ruins discovered at Thulamela near Phafuri in the far north of the Kruger National Park and the Great Zimbabwe ruins in south-eastern Zimbabwe. It lends further credibility to the many legends about the origins of Ga-Modjadji.”SouthAfrica.info reporter and Neville Maakana, BuaNews
