Jaffas

Jaffas are an Australian-New Zealand registered trademark for a small round sweet consisting of a soft chocolate centre with a hard covering of orange flavoured, red coloured confectionery. The name derives from the Jaffa orange; the sweet is part of both Kiwiana. James Stedman-Henderson's Sweets Ltd, under their brand Sweetacres, released Jaffas onto the Australian and New Zealand markets in 1931; the confectionery is made in Australia by Allen's lollies, a division of Nestlé and in New Zealand by RJ's Licorice in Levin. A number of Australian and New Zealand amateur sporting groups use Jaffas as a team name. In Dunedin, New Zealand every year a vast quantity of Jaffas is raced down Baldwin Street – the world's steepest residential street, according to the Guinness World Records – as part of the Cadbury Chocolate carnival, held in conjunction with the New Zealand International Science Festival; the initial number of 20,000 Jaffas has now been increased to 30,000 Jaffas. The Australian supermarket business Coles has a generic version called "Choc Orange Balls".

Njoro River Cave

Njoro River Cave is an archaeological site on the Mau Escarpment, first excavated in 1938 by Mary Leakey and her husband Louis Leakey. Excavations revealed a mass cremation site created by Elmenteitan pastoralists during the Pastoral Neolithic 3350-3050 BP. Excavations uncovered pottery, stone bowls, basket work and flakes; the Leakeys' excavation was one of the earliest to uncover ancient beads and tools in the area and a investigation in 1950 was the first to use radiocarbon dating in East Africa. The Njoro River Cave was the place of first use of radiocarbon dating in East Africa. Though the Leakeys only made a single observation in 1950 tests were conducted in the 1980s. Results from four total radiocarbon dates cluster at 3350-3050 BP. Seventy-eight individuals were recovered. While there is nothing that would suggest the items were only left for certain genders, the number of male remains found doubled the amount of female remains; each body was buried with some type of potsherd, bead, stone bowl, gourd or other various items.

It appears. First the bodies were wrapped in skins, they were bound and covered with soil before the burning took place. A hole was dug into the ground and the body was placed into the hole, they were covered with red ochre. A fire was lit on top, creating an oven atmosphere and leaving the remains in various states; the site contained thousands of beads made of semi-precious stones including agate, quartz and microcline. Before this excavation, beads such as these were thought to have been imported. Despite the fact many of the beads were burned for ceremonial purposes and lost their color, many of the excavated pieces kept their shape. Although many pottery pieces were found, they were only able to rebuild two pots. 78 stone vessels were recovered. There were several different types of bowls found, including platters and shallow basins, pestle-rubbing, deep bowls, round-and flat-based, convex-sided bowls with sharp rims and oval bowls; these patterns were more ornate than others in the region

Ivica Mornar

Ivica Mornar is a Croatian former footballer. He started as striker, but was deployed as a winger during his career. Mornar began his career with Hajduk Split before going on to play for Eintracht Frankfurt, Sevilla, CD Ourense, Standard Liège, Anderlecht and Portsmouth, he played 22 matches and scored once for the Croatian national team, representing them at Euro 2004. Mornar was born in Split. In Mornar's final season at Anderlecht, he scored their goal in a 1–1 home draw against Bayern Munich on 30 September 2003; the player was offered a new two-year contract by Anderlecht, but opted to move across the English channel to Portsmouth. He moved to the Premier League at the end of January 2004 for £500,000, signing a two-and-half-year deal. Mornar made his Pompey debut in a goalless draw at home to Wolverhampton, looked lively, he scored his first and only goal in the next game against Tottenham. A performance that earned Mornar the'Swan d'Or', a celebrated Croatian sporting award, he played as a winger in most of his Portsmouth appearances.

However, Mornar failed to recreate his previous form at Portsmouth. Out of the picture at the club, he was loaned to Rennes of the French Ligue 1 for the 2004–05 season, with Pompey manager Harry Redknapp saying that, he would allow Mornar to be sold upon his return, although this was not well received by the fans who admired his tireless running on the wings. Although it appeared that Mornar was in new boss Alain Perrin's plans for the 2005–06 campaign, he was thwarted by hamstring injuries throughout the season. Upon the return of Harry Redknapp as manager in December 2005 it looked as though Mornar's contract would be allowed to expire the next Summer. However, it transpired that there was a clause in his contract guaranteeing him a further year at the club should relegation be avoided and he remained a Portsmouth player, until September 2006 when his contract with the club was cancelled by mutual consent; this brought further complications due to the fact that Mornar could not find a club willing to sign him.

Despite his unceremonious exit from Portsmouth he enjoyed his time playing there and persuaded fellow Split native Niko Kranjčar to join the club. He offered his services to first league teams from Belgium, Scotland and Japan but no team was interested, thereby forcing his retirement. Mornar scored one goal for his country.
