Drones Can you believe it’s that time of the year already? It feels like Christmas was yesterday, but it would seem that Valentine’s Day is already upon us. It’s always difficult to try and figure out what to get our significant other to celebrate this day of love. Although some girls will be over the moon with flowers or perfume, guys are much more difficult to shop for. So, we’ve decided to make things easier for you by suggesting our 4 top gifts to get your bae this Valentine’s. 1. Darth Vader Alarm Clock: Let’s face it, this is an awesome gift and is the best of both worlds, because not only is it very practical but it will appeal to his inner geek. This alarm features a fully adjustable Darth Vader in his iconic black armour. It has a backlit LCD screen with digital clock and stand around 9.5 inches tall. If your Valentine is a major Star Wars fan, then this LEGO mini-figure clock is the perfect addition to his collection. An added bonus is that he will ever again be late for your date again. 2. A Discovery Microscope: This is the perfect gift if your Valentine is into science. It will excite his curiosity and keep him busy for hours. The Veho Discovery Microscope 400x is a handy USB desktop microscope. With its 2 Mega Pixel magnification it can be used for quite a number of things around the home and even the office. He can use it to examine his computer parts, do laboratory research or medical analysis, he can also use it as a presentation tool or to inspect printing – the list goes on. It even has a built-in webcam and a few recording features so he can share his discoveries online or save them for later. 3. Battle Game Power Tracks: I’m sure most of you are not quite familiar with this, so let’s just start of by saying this is a great gift for the gamer boyfriend. Simply put it’s a remote control tank, and what guy wouldn’t want a remote control tank? He can battle it out with the Battle Game Power Tracks. There are optical sensors that record the . . .
FNB NMMU-Madibaz captain and scrumhalf Ivan Ludick clears the ball during their first-round FNB Varsity Cup clash against UJ last night. Photo: Saspa Despite ending on the losing side, the FNB NMMU-Madibaz showed some early-season promise in a wet FNB Varsity Cup encounter against the University of Johannesburg last night. Playing away from home, the Madibaz went down 19-12 in a hard-fought match that remained in the balance until deep into the second half. After the match had been suspended early in the first half due to heavy rain and lightning, the visitors came out in full attack mode but were unable to break through UJ's defences. The home side led 6-3 going into the break with just one penalty separating the teams. "The boys had certainly put their bodies on the line, but we are hurting," said Madibaz head coach David Maidza. "It is a bit unfortunate not to have come away with more than just one point. It was a match for the taking." Maidza said the team defended valiantly, but were not clinical enough when they had the ball in hand. "I felt it was a true team effort with everyone putting their hand up, but we could have done better with the possession we had." He said the players could have asked their opposition more questions, but pointed out that it was a "learning curve" for the relatively inexperienced outfit. Having lost 42-13 in the corresponding fixture last season, Maidza will be upbeat after a much-improved performance against the Highveld side. Following the match, he said that he had identified "a couple of issues" on attack and will focus on these with his players during the video analysis sessions this week. "It is early in the season and there is still time to improve. We've got to fight for it." The Madibaz will kick off their home campaign against Maties in a televised match in PE on Monday evening.
