ISSA/Grace Headley Cup benefits St Ann schools

first_imgAfter an approximate 10-year hiatus from the ISSA/Grace Headley Cup schoolboy cricket competitions, young cricketers at Ferncourt High School in Claremont, St Ann, are on the comeback trail, seeking to mark their place in history.Ferncourt’s coach, Demar Sylvester, said that the ISSA/ Grace Headley Cup had provided his students with the opportunity to engage in and gain valuable knowledge about the sport of cricket in spite of dropping out of the competition. Some of the boys, he said, were first-time cricketers who benefited from the experience.”This has provided us with the opportunity to embark on intense training for the next season. I will also personally seek to solicit the assistance and skills from males in the community who are knowledgeable about the game to assist in training the boys,” Sylvester stated.Avid cricketerSylvester, who describes himself as an avid cricketer, wants as many students as possible to benefit from his coaching and knowledge.”There are many of them who are already demonstrating good work and training ethics, overall discipline, and dedication to the sport,” Sylvester said.The school’s captain, Gary Allen, and his teammates, Dwayne Rose and Raheem Whyte, are among those who are always first to show up for training and the last to leave. Seventh-grader Rikone Harris was also singled out as a bright student with much promise for the future.”The passion that these boys exhibit during training helps to personally give me the energy and zeal to continue working with the team. Their skills are improving, and this is noticeable,” said Sylvester.He is hopeful that through their dedication, they will be among the better players in the parish and, by extension, Jamaica, making cricket their profession.”I believe that if they are given the opportunity to play more practice matches, it could develop their conditional reflex to play the appropriate shots for a given delivery,” he reasoned.Coach at Marcus Garvey Technical High Damani Sewell said that his team entered this season’s competition for exposure to prepare themselves for next year.”I took a tactical decision for them to gain first-hand experience, so we expect to see better performances next season as we are on the verge of developing a good programme,” said Sewell.last_img read more

Rafael Nadal: Andy Murray will be a big loss, but the game goes on

first_imgThe No. 2-ranked Nadal enters the Australian Open as a legitimate title contender along with No. 1-ranked Novak Djokovic and No. 3-ranked Roger Federer, both six-time champions at Melbourne Park. Nadal is 32. Djokovic turns 32 in May, a week or so after Murray. Federer is 37.Five-time finalist Murray plans to start the tournament in Australia, but he has conceded it could be his last after 20 months of struggling to overcome a long-time injury. The severe pain from his surgically repaired right hip is restricting his movement and he has already flagged he’ll retire after Wimbledon — if he can keep playing that long.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSJapeth Aguilar wins 1st PBA Finals MVP award for GinebraSPORTSGolden State Warriors sign Lee to multiyear contract, bring back ChrissMurray practiced on Saturday at Melbourne Park not long before Nadal appeared at a news conference to talk about his health after three months out of competitive tennis and his prospects at the Australian Open, the only one of the four Grand Slam tournaments that he hasn’t won at least twice.“Yeah, of course is very bad news,” Nadal said of Murray’s tearful news conference the previous day. “Will be a very important loss for us, for the world of tennis, for the tour, for the fans, even for the rivals that he have been part of a great rivalry between the best players for a long time, and a great competitor.

Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. MOST READ “Seems like he had not very long career because today players are playing that long. But he’s 31 — 10 years ago, if he retired at 31, we will say he had a great and very long career,” Nadal said. “We will miss him. But today is him. Tomorrow another one. We are not 20 anymore. Our generation, everyone is more than 30s.”The Big Four have dominated the men’s circuit for more than a decade and shared around the major titles with few exceptions, such as Stan Wawrinka’s wins at the 2014 Australian Open, the 2015 French and the 2016 U.S Open, and Marin Cilic’s victory at the 2014 U.S. Open.There’s a crop of other players coming through, including No. 4-ranked Sasha Zverev, but much of the attention in the first the couple of days at Melbourne Park will be on Nadal, Murray and Djokovic — who went through juniors together — and Federer.Nadal will open against Australian James Duckworth in the second match Monday on Rod Laver Arena. Federer has a night match against Denis Istomin on the same center court.Murray is scheduled to play No. 22-seeded Roberto Bautista Agut on Monday at Melbourne Arena, the third of the show courts. Djokovic is on the other side of the draw and will start on Day 2.Nadal recalled a younger Murray — “a little bit a bad boy” — in the under-13s and 14s, but was full of praise for how his Scottish friend had evolved.“At the end of the day you appreciate a lot your rivals because you shared lot of important moments in our lives,” he said. “I always had good relationship with him. We shared courts in the most important stadiums in the world, competing for the most important things. That’s impossible to forget.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next “But being honest, when somebody like him, that he achieved almost everything in his tennis career, is suffering like he’s doing for such a long time already … probably he does the right thing for his mental health.”Nadal has missed long periods of tennis because of injuries throughout his career, still managing to amass 17 major titles, but has never contemplated a date for retirement.“I didn’t arrive to that point. I am a positive guy. I always had the feeling that we’ll fix it,” he said. “But, of course, there is periods of time that you don’t see the light. Is tough.”Federer has credited improvements in travel, in nutrition and in life balance for giving modern tennis players the ability to extend their careers well into their 30s. He was 35 and coming off a long injury layoff when he revived his career with an Australian Open title in 2017. He successfully defended the title last year, his 20th major.Nadal’s plan for longevity revolves around playing fewer tournaments and resting whenever he has persistent injuries. That became less of an option for Murray, who is contemplating further surgery just to cut down on the pain he feels when he’s doing such simple things as putting on his shoes and socks.ADVERTISEMENT Ginebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup title In fight vs corruption, Duterte now points to Ayala, MVP companies as ‘big fish’ Ginebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup title View comments Spain’s Rafael Nadal gestures during a press conference ahead of the Australian Open tennis championships in Melbourne, Australia, Saturday, Jan. 12, 2019.

Commerce Minister’s Absence Prevents Court’s Proceedings

first_imgFailure of Assistant Minister for Trade at the Ministry of Commence (MOC), Steve Marvie, to appear before the Commercial Court at the Temple of Justice on Friday was enough for Judge Chan-Chan Paegar not to go ahead with the special hearing.Minister Marvie was authorized by the court to appear on Friday to testify and produce the original copy of the trademark certificate issued to H.K. Enterprises, authorizing a Lebanese owned business entity as the sole importer of Pop Drink on the local market.Minister Marvie was also to produce documents submitted by H.K. Enterprises in support of its application for the registration of the trademark for Pop Drink, which he did not show up to do.H.K. Enterprises alleged that it obtained the certificate in 2014 from the Liberia Industrial Property Office (LIPO), with supporting documents from Minister Marvie.But a Liberian business, BAF Trading Corporation, claimed that in 2010 LIPO awarded it (BAF) 10 years as holders of the trademark certificate for the Pop Drink, and without their knowledge, LIPO and MOC duplicated the certificate and gave H.K. Enterprise the right to import said product on the local market.It was based on that claim that H.K. Enterprises’ legal team asked Judge Paegar to compel Marvie to produce documents in his ministry’s possession on the matter.At Friday’s hearing, when Atty. Roosevelt Gould, who represented Minister Marvie, appeared, his client was not in the courtroom.After noticing that Minister Marvie would not attend the hearing, Atty. Gould reminded Judge Paegar that he had something to say in that direction.When he was given the opportunity, Atty. Gould said, “Based on the order that was issued against Steve Marvie for him to appear and testify in this case, due to some prior official engagement he is unable to heed the court’s request to present documents and to testify.”Marvie’s lawyer went on, “Therefore, as it is required by said request, he would be available at any point in time when the said writ is reissued. We pray and ask the court that it grants this plea and have him appear in the future.”Atty. Gould rested with his submission and Judge Paegar did not prescribe any punishment for Minister Marvie not attending to his call; but instead, the judge accepted Atty. Gould’s plea and asked for the minister to appear on Thursday, April 21.Besides Marvie, LIPO acting director Robert T. Mezzeh was to also appear and explain how H.K. Enterprise obtained the trademark registration from his office to import the product at the center of the dispute.Mezzeh was the only person who showed up at Friday’s hearing. However, although Mezzeh appeared on Friday, Judge Paegar did not allow him to take the witness stand to produce the documents and testify in the absence of Minister Marvie.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Pacesetters suffer mixed fortunes

first_imgGABA Rainforest/Malta Supreme League…Basketball action continued over the past weekend at the Burnham Hard Court in Georgetown, where the Rainforest Water/Malta Supreme/Georgetown Amateur Basketball Association’s (GABA’s) First, Second and Under-23 division leagues were staged.The Pepsi Sonics bowed out the Eagles in the U-23 Division, then the Colts defeated Sonics’ 1st Division team on Saturday. Sunday saw the Pacesetters lose to Plaisance Guardians in the 2nd Division match, while the Division 1 Pacesetters squad scored a win over the Nets. Pacesetters managed to win one of their two games to end their night on a high.In the first match of the night, Pacesetters succumbed to Plaisance Guardians 60-72 in a high-intensity show. At the half, the Guardians led 32-17, after which the game looked like it could be anyone’s game. In the third, it was more of the same. Even though Pacesetters were a bit more accurate, they were still outscored 15-21.In the fourth, Pacesetters tried hard to fight their way back from the 21-point lead, but it was a little too late for them, and they lost by 12 points.Pacesetters’ Troy Davids put up 23, while Mark Rose supported with 13 points and George Yearwood, 10.Guardians’ win was attributed to team effort, with Torrence Daniels top-scoring for his side with 18.The final match of the night saw the Pacesetters off to a shaky start, the Nets being neck and neck with them, but the former prevailed 89-84. Scoring for the Nets, A Austin was excellent with 31 points, and he received support from Pelham Doris (17) and Hoydhayl Stewart (16). However, their efforts were not enough, as the Pacesetters, showing unity, were able to convert more opportunities given to edge them out.Pacesetters’ Michael Turner had 18, while Dave Causway put up 15 and Nathan Saul had 14.On Saturday, the Eagles flew away with the match against the Sonics, winning 83-54. Captain Lemuel Grant was the only one who put up some fight with 12 points; the Sonics were outplayed in every department. Eagles showed their superiority as they flexed their muscles on the opposition. Sherland Gillis top scored with 18, while his captain Shamaar Huntley assisted with 14.In the other match, the 1st Division Sonics side were searching for a highly unlikely win, but they followed in the tracks of their U23 counterparts and lost to the Colts 62-51.Sonics led 20-14 after the first quarter, but the opposition’s defence got better as the game progressed. Sonics were then outscored in the next three periods 10-15, 10-17, 11-16 respectively, to proverbially snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. Colts’ Sheldon Thomas and Shane Webster had 12 and 13, while Sonics’ Jason Samires top scored with 19.last_img read more

Kane hails Tottenham winner as ‘greatest moment’ in his career

first_img1 Tottenham’s new star Harry Kane hailed his late match-winning strike in the 2-1 win at Aston Villa as one of the “greatest moments” in his fledgling career.Spurs fans were frustrated to see the in-form striker left on the bench in favour of the misfiring Emmanuel Adebayor, however boss Mauricio Pochettino eventually bowed to the travelling supporters’ demands and introduced the academy product on 58 minutes.It was a move that would prove dividends as Kane netted a 90th minute free-kick – his first ever Premier League goal – to snatch all three points and stun Villa Park.A delighted Kane, who has now scored nine times in 13 appearances in all competitions this season, said: “Without a doubt it was one of the greatest moments for me in a Spurs shirt in my career so far.“To be 1-0 down in an important game for us, we needed a win and to pull it back there at the end is a moment I won’t forget.”The forward also revealed his manager’s words of advice prior to throwing him into the fray.“The manager said there’s plenty of time left to be getting on the ball, you’ll get some chances so take one and obviously fortunately I was able to do that and it’s all smiles in the dressing room now,” he added to Sky Sports.Regarding his match-winning free-kick, Kane said: “He (Lamela) wanted it and he’d taken the one before , but I said ‘this one can be mine’ and obviously it ended up in the back of the net and it was great – a great result.” Tottenham’s Harry Kane last_img read more

Court rules to regulate emissions

first_imgFor the rules to take effect, the Environmental Protection Agency still must grant a waiver that California applied for under the federal Clean Air Act. California has won several such waivers in the past, allowing it to set up more stringent vehicle anti-pollution standards than the federal government’s. Other states can choose to follow California’s lead. California Attorney Jerry Brown said Wednesday the ruling in Vermont would be a “hollow victory” if the state does not get its wavier from the federal government. “We will haul the Bush administration into court if it persists in stalling on our request to regulate emissions from motor vehicles,” Brown said in a statement. David Doniger, senior climate lawyer with the Natural Resources Defense Council, one of several environmental groups that sided with Vermont, said the waiver request was given a big boost by an April 2 U.S. Supreme Court decision saying carbon dioxide was a pollutant worthy of regulation. Doniger said the EPA could deny the waiver if it finds that achieving the carbon reduction standard was not technically feasible. But he said automakers “threw everything they had,” providing copious documents and experts to try to persuade the judge that was the case, and he didn’t buy it. Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger issued a statement praising the court’s ruling as a victory for California’s efforts to combat global warming. “California and other states that want to take aggressive action will no longer be blocked by those who stand in our way,” he said. In Vermont, Gov. Jim Douglas also hailed the court’s ruling. “We were up against a very strong adversary in the auto industry, but the law and the facts were clearly on our side,” he said. “Most of Vermont’s greenhouse gas emissions are from motor vehicles, so if we’re going to reduce our carbon footprint, we need to set high but achievable standards for automobiles.” Dave McCurdy, president and CEO of a main plaintiff in the Vermont suit, the Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers, said in a statement, “It makes sense that only the federal government can regulate fuel economy. Automakers support improving fuel economy standards nationally, rather than piecemeal, and will continue to work with the Congress, NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) and EPA to reduce our oil dependence while increasing fuel economy.” McCurdy said his group may appeal the decision. Automakers maintained that cutting carbon requires improving fuel economy, since carbon emissions are proportional to the amount of gasoline burned. And they said fuel economy, under a 1975 federal law, is solely under the jurisdiction of the U.S. Department of Transportation. The states argued that they can regulate carbon emissions as a tailpipe pollutant under the Clean Air Act. California upped the ante in 2005 by adding carbon dioxide to its list of regulated tailpipe emissions. Other states were required either to apply the enhanced California rules or revert to the federal standard. Automakers filed suit in California, Vermont and Rhode Island. Vermont’s case was the first to go to trial, after a federal judge in California put a similar case there on hold pending the outcome of the April U.S. Supreme Court decision. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! A federal judge ruled that states can regulate greenhouse gas emissions from vehicles, rejecting automakers’ claims that federal law pre-empts state rules and that technology can’t be developed to meet them. “There is no question that the GHG (greenhouse gas) regulations present great challenges to automakers,” Judge William Sessions III, sitting in the U.S. District Court in Burlington, wrote at the conclusion of his 240-page decision. He added, “History suggests that the ingenuity of the industry, once put in gear, responds admirably to most technological challenges. In light of the public statements of industry representatives, (the) history of compliance with previous technological challenges, and the state of the record, the court remains unconvinced automakers cannot meet the challenges of Vermont and California’s GHG regulations.” During a 16-day trial that concluded in May, auto industry executives testified that the regulations – adopted by California and 11 other states and pending in three others – would not stop global warming but would impose devastating new costs on the industry. Slated to start phasing in by 2009, the limits would require a 30 percent reduction in carbon dioxide emissions from cars and trucks by 2016. The car makers say that would require average fuel economy standards for cars and the lightest category of trucks of 43.7 miles per gallon. VERMONT: Judge says automakers can meet challenges and federal rules don’t trump states. By Dave Gram THE ASSOCIATED PRESS MONTPELIER, Vt. – Vermont and several other states scored a victory Wednesday in their battle to get automakers to comply with rules aimed at reducing global warming. last_img read more

DONEGAL’S ICONIC DOE CASTLE TO OPEN TO THE PUBLIC

first_imgDoe Castle in all its splendour.Donegal’s famous Doe Castle is to open to the public from Sunday next, July 12th, 2015.Local group Mevagh Moving Forward, in conjunction with Donegal Local Development Company, have arranged for guided tours of the grounds and the Castle, where visitors will be able to explore and be given a historic tour of this wonderful building.Following restoration works at the end of the last century, the Castle has been closed to members of the public ever since.Following discussions between Moving Mevagh Forward and DLDC with Minister Joe McHugh, the Minister raised the matter with the Minister for the Office of Public Works, Simon Harris TD, who was strongly supportive of the initiative.A proposal by MMF and DLDC to set up a TÚS initiative in order to facilitate greater public access at Doe Castle was submitted and accepted by the Department, subject to certain Health and Safety issues which are being addressed.Doe Castle plays a very important historic and heritage role in the area; its walls have seen many famous figures from throughout Irish history, such as Red Hugh O’Donnell, Owen Roe O’Neill and the infamous Maolmhuire an Bhata Bhuí.The location of Doe Castle, so near to the Wild Atlantic Way, has a history of attracting tourists to the area and with the addition of the very popular WAW, this will only help enhance greater visitor numbers to the Castle and help the community reap the benefits of this positive brand and initiative. Its proximity to Fanad Lighthouse, a Signature Point along the WAW, is yet another strongpoint and will also encourage visitors to the area.The grounds are presently being opened by Jean Moore, Doe each day and this arrangement will continue. The keep (fortified tower within the Castle) will be open on Fridays, Saturdays & Sundays throughout the summer with guided tours starting at 11am and as requested during the day. There will be no charge.The official opening will take place on Friday, July 10th at 7.30pm in the Castle grounds by Minister of State, Joe McHugh TD.DONEGAL’S ICONIC DOE CASTLE TO OPEN TO THE PUBLIC was last modified: July 7th, 2015 by StephenShare 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
