GBBC launches “Young Guns – The Proving Ground”

first_imgFollowing a five-month hiatus — that began in April and was occasioned by a playing field deemed unplayable because of frequent flooding and the excessive presence of slush — the Guyana Hockey Board (GHB) on Saturday evening resumed their developmental league at the St. Stanislaus College Ground on Carifesta Avenue with six planned matches.In the Solo Under-19 leagues, the GCC Pitbulls and Bingo Spartans lead the boys’ and girls’ categories respectively. In the Bounty Paper Towel-sponsored second division leagues, Pizza Hut GCC lead the women’s category; while in the men’s competition, Old Fort and GCC The Sequel are tied on 12 points each, with Old Fort holding a one goal advantage on goal difference.These 7-a-side Under-19 and second division leagues are the second and third steps in the GHB’s player development strategy, helping the graduates from the Smalta/iCool Water Under-14 Indoor leagues to make the transition to the outdoor game. Clubs also use these leagues to identify new talent to draft into their first division teams which will compete in the Farfan and Mendes and Woodpecker Products-sponsored leagues, scheduled to commence as soon as venues become available.The action gets underway again today, September 2, from 15hrs at the Saint Stanislaus Ground on Carifesta Avenue.With the yearly May-June inclement weather having come early, the league was put on hold in April of this year while it was around its halfway stage. The GHB has, however, kept its promise to postpone rather than discontinue the league.last_img read more

Mourinho warns Man United must spend to reach Juventus and Man City level

first_img 3 Dybala pounced on a loose ball in the box to score the only goal against United Cristiano Ronaldo enjoyed a winning return to Old Trafford with Juventus “So good experience for some of the boys – Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial … Romelu Lukaku – I think it is the second season he plays Champions League too. So we work, we try to improve our players but quality is quality.“Juventus were at a different level of quality, stability, experience and knowhow. And, again, I repeat: quality in football is everywhere. When I say quality I don’t say just a creative player or just a beautiful player … Chiellini and Bonucci were beautiful, absolutely beautiful. But my boys, I’m so happy with what they did.”Paulo Dybala’s 18th-minute goal was enough to earn Juventus the victory and it was deserved one too, as they enjoyed the majority of possession at Old Trafford.Amd Mourinho rates Max Allegri’s side as one of the leading contenders for Champions League glory this season. 3 Jose Mourinho claims Juventus are on a ‘different level’ to Manchester United and has warned his club’s owners they must invest more to truly challenge Europe’s elite once more.United were beaten 1-0 by the Italian champions at Old Trafford on Tuesday night to leave them five points adrift of their victors in Champions League Group H.center_img Leonardo Bonucci drew praise from Jose Mourinho for his performance Mourinho has spent close to £400million since becoming United boss in 2016 but he insisted after the match that he doesn’t have the quality required to rival the likes of Juve, Barcelona, Real Madrid and Manchester City.Asked how far away United are from the Serie A champions, Mourinho said: “A bit far. Juventus are champions (of Italy) for seven years in a row, two Champions League finals in the last four or five years and (they are) not happy with what they have, they want more.“They had (Gonazlo) Higuain, (Mario) Mandzukic, Dybala, they want more. They want Ronaldo. They had (Andrea) Barzagli, Chiellini, (Daniele) Rugani, they are not happy, they want more, they want Bonucci, and they go for the best players in the world.“How can you reach this level? It’s not easy. We work with what we have. We try to improve.Manchester United 0-1 Juventus match report: Cristiano Ronaldo makes winning Old Trafford return thanks to Paolo Dybala strike“To go to the Juventus level? Barcelona level? Real Madrid level? Manchester City level? How can you reach this level? Yes [by buying the best players]. It is not easy because many of the players they belong to these top teams, so we work with what we have and we try to improve with what we have.“For example today – I saw the amazing Chiellini and amazing Bonucci but I have to say Chris Smalling and Victor Lindelöf had a very positive game [also at centre-back]. It is the first time Victor plays a game of this dimension and Victor had a positive game; Luke Shaw also in the Champions League at this level of match. 3 He added: “We play against one of the biggest, really biggest candidates, to win the Champions League and we did the possible.“We could get the different result, especially because of the way we played in the second half. We didn’t especially because Mr (Leonardo) Bonucci, Mr (Giorgio) Chiellini, they could go to Harvard University to give classes about how to be a central defender. Absolutely fantastic.“It is a team that has everything, they have talent everywhere. Of course Cristiano (Ronaldo), Dybala, the talent they have in attack, but the quality all over the pitch and a really difficult match.“I’m happy with the players. Since the draw we knew it would be a fight with Valencia for the second position and that is what we are going to try.”last_img read more

NEW LIFEBOAT PRAISED AS IT REACHES STRANDED FISHERMEN IN RECORD TIME

first_imgThe Lough Swilly Shannon lifeboat.The newly-launched Lough Swilly Shannon lifeboat has been praised after it played a vital part in saving there men from seas off Inishsowen.The boat, on its first full rescue, responded with several other lifeboats and other local boats when there fishermen failed to return to shore overnight.The men, in a 16ft vessel, had gone out to test the boat but had failed to return. The new Shannon lifeboat, who spotted the missing craft on its radar, was first on the scene.A spokesman for the Lough Swilly lifeboat said the response time with the new boat was 50 minutes quicker in reaching the men than it would have taken before.The men were taken back to the shore shortly after 3am much to the relief of waiting friends and relatives.“Very often we don’t have god endings as we saw off Horn Head earlier in the week. But thankfully the outcome here was a happy one. The new boat certainly played its part as did all the rescue vessels and other support boats who responded to the call,” said the spokesman.  NEW LIFEBOAT PRAISED AS IT REACHES STRANDED FISHERMEN IN RECORD TIME was last modified: June 19th, 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) Tags:donegalfishermenInishowenLough Swilly Shannonlast_img read more

Media, Journals Alarmed at Rise of Intelligent Design Movement

first_imgThe number of articles in the news about the Intelligent Design (ID) Movement is rising, partly because of the upcoming hearings before the Kansas school board.  National Geographic news asked, “Does ‘Intelligent Design’ Threaten the Definition of Science?” in an April 27 article, but at least author John Roach got the definition of ID correct, said John West on the EvolutionNews blog.  MSNBC News, on the other hand, portrayed ID as a religious movement and quoted pro-evolution attorney Pedro Irigonegaray exclaiming, “I feel like I’m in a time warp here.  To debate evolution is similar to debating whether the Earth is round.  It is an absurd proposition.”  The source of this story appears to be Reuters news service.  In addition, NPR Science Friday also presented another one-sided view of the debate.    Science magazine this week joined Nature (see 04/27 entry) in alerting the research community about the rise of ID.  Yudhijit Bhattacharjee reported1 updated the earlier story posted on ScienceNow (see 04/21 entry) about the pro-evolution strategy in Kansas.  The plan is to argue that ID will hurt the economy:Last week more than 100 people opposed to making ID part of the science curriculum held a meeting in a liberal church here to test a new rallying cry: A high-quality science education means more jobs and a stronger economy.  By attracting business, civic, and religious leaders, supporters hope to erode ID’s traditional base and stave off changes that they believe will make Kansas an undesirable location for high-tech companies, academics, and other knowledge-based workers. (Emphasis added in all quotes.)Science also printed a letter to the editor called “A cry for help from Kansas.”2  Eric Reynolds appealed to fellow readers to wake up to the possibility that what is happening in Kansas could soon come to their states.  Claiming that “the very foundation of science in the United States is at risk,” he said, “What a shame it would be if unqualified politicians succeed in undoing centuries of scientific progress in both the public’s perception of science and its continuing advancement.”  There must be heretics among the ranks of Science readers, however; the prior week, there were four letters to the editor about ID: two for, and two against.    Part of the anti-ID strategy appears to distance evolution from atheism.  Bhattacharjee’s article shows Steve Case making his case from a pulpit, with the caption, “Steve Case and other Kansas scientists hope to make religious leaders allies in the debate over intelligent design.”  Twice it is noted that their allies are liberal churches.  The religious image may just be a cloak, however.  The pro-ID website KansasScience2005 found a letter posted by the anti-ID group Kansas Citizens for Science that said:My strategy at this point is the same as it was in 1999: notify the national and local media about what’s going on and portray them in the harshest light possible, as political opportunists, evangelical activists, ignoramuses, breakers of rules, unprincipled bullies, etc.There may no way to head off another science standards debacle, but we can sure make them look like asses as they do what they do.The letter was from Liz Craig, said to be a spokesperson for Kansas Citizens for Science.  John West on EvolutionNews wonders “whether journalists in the national news media will be credulous enough to allow themselves to be manipulated by Ms. Craig and her colleagues.”  Mark Hartwig commented on Access Research Network that her “loose lips” gives occasion for ID supporters to shout, like teens catching someone in the act, “B-u-u-u-sted!”1Yudhijit Bhattacharjee, “Kansas Gears Up for Another Battle Over Teaching Evolution,” Science, Vol 308, Issue 5722, 627, 29 April 2005, [DOI: 10.1126/science.308.5722.627].2Eric Reynolds, “A Cry for Help from Kansas,” Science, Vol 308, Issue 5722, 631, 29 April 2005, [DOI: 10.1126/science.308.5722.631b].It is really quite amusing to see the paranoia of the Darwin Party hacks.  You know they are on the wrong side of history when they have to resort to fear mongering, faulty analogies, non-sequiturs and straw man arguments.  We offer them a secret weapon that is sure to demolish ID in one fell swoop like a nuclear bomb, without all the guerrilla warfare.  It is called scientific evidence.  Show the world evidence that undirected natural processes could indeed build the most efficient molecular machines and programmed guidance and control mechanisms known to man.  Build a better irreducibly complex mousetrap without appeal to design, and the worldview will beat a path to your door.(Visited 15 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

We respect media freedom: Zuma

first_img27 July 2009The South African government will continue to respect media freedom in the country, and promote the role of the media in the socio-economic development of the continent, says President Jacob Zuma.The African Editors Forum met with Zuma in Pretoria last week to brief South Africa’s new administration on the challenges facing journalists in Africa.Media freedomIssues of media freedom and the role of the media in the socio-economic development of the continent were also discussed, according to International Relations Minister Maite Nkoana-Mashabane, who was part of the meeting.Speaking to local journalists after the meeting, Nkoana-Mashabane said: “One thing we all agreed upon is that we are all … eager to project an image of an Africa that is rising politically socially and economically.”Development roleFor the media to play its development role in Africa, Nkoana-Mashabane said, each sector of society had to play its role as well. “Governments need to govern properly, and the media need to report constructively.”By this, she added, “we don’t mean the media must always report what we want to hear.”Nkoana-Mashabane congratulated former City Press Editor Mathatha Tsedu on his appointment as chairperson of the African Editors Forum.Tsedu said the editors had informed Zuma of the continuing harassment of journalists in most African countries, and of threats to media freedom in countries like Zimbabwe, Gambia, Somalia and the Sudan.“Media Freedom is still under threat in countries like Zimbabwe, the Sudan, Gambia, Niger and Eritrea, to name but a few,” Tsedu said.Source: BuaNewslast_img read more
