Boys’ Town net birthday win in Red Stripe Premier League

first_imgBoys’ Town Football Club celebrated their 75th anniversary yesterday with a 1-0 win over Waterhouse in the Red Stripe Premier League (RSPL) football match at Waterhouse Stadium.Shamar Nicholson netted the game’s only goal after three minutes to give the ‘Red Brigade’ their first back-to-back wins for the season.On the contrary, defeat sunk Waterhouse to the bottom of the standings.In terms of a start, it has been far from the best for the famed ‘Red Brigade’, but coach Andrew Price said they were determined to celebrate the occasion with a victory.”The day started right; we had a church service this morning for our 75th anniversary, and the message we got from our chaplain was very inspirational. One of the things he said was that we are only as strong as all of us, and I think it resonated with the players as they dug in today (yesterday) and really fought hard,” observed Price.”It wasn’t the prettiest, but we fought, and I believe it was a just result,” he added.Teenager Nicholson put the visitors ahead after just three minutes of play, when he took advantage of a scramble in the box to score.Boys’ Town were better in the first-half, although the best chance of the period fell to Sean Coleman, who opted to pass with the goalkeeper at his mercy and the chance went a-begging.After the break, Waterhouse controlled possession, but both teams showed why they are struggling in the lower half of the table, as chances were minimal.However, towards the end, Waterhouse stepped up in search of the equaliser, and Kenroy Howell, Omar Walcott and Jermain ‘Tuffy’ Anderson all had very good opportunities to steal a point, but they all failed to find the net.”We are still missing chances after chances, but once we can get that right in front of goal, I think we will be okay,” said Waterhouse coach Anthony Patrick.The win lifted Boys’ Town one place up the table to eighth with 12 points, while Waterhouse hit rock bottom as they are bottom of the League with seven points, one behind UWI, who drew 2-2 with Reno.Meanwhile, Harbour View stunned second-place Portmore United 3-0 on Kevon Frater’s hat-trick, to also register their first back-to-back win of the season.Junior Flemmings continued his fine form, scoring the lone goal in Tivoli Gardens’ 1-0 win over Rivoli United at Spanish Town Prison Oval, while Humble Lion beat Cavalier 1-0 on a late goal from Devon Hodges in their clash at Stadium East.Montego Bay United remain on top with 17 points. Portmore stayed second on 15, followed by Tivoli and Reno with 14.

Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim trying to cope with tragic accident

first_imgSyracuse coach Jim Boeheim, left, bows his head during a moment of silence for the man killed in a fatal crash involving coach Boeheim, before the team’s NCAA college basketball game against Duke in Syracuse, N.Y., Saturday, Feb. 23, 2019. Duke won 75-65. (AP Photo/Nick Lisi)SYRACUSE, N.Y. — The part of every college basketball season that players and coaches covet looms in less than a month. For Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim, the NCAA Tournament doesn’t even register as he tries to cope with a fatal accident that occurred with him at the wheel.Boeheim struck and killed 51-year-old Jorge Jimenez on a dark highway after a big home win over Louisville last Wednesday night. Boeheim swerved in his SUV to avoid a disabled car that was perpendicular across two lanes and hit Jimenez as he was trying to get to safety.ADVERTISEMENT “I can’t describe the feelings I’ve had since Wednesday night,” said Boeheim, in his 43rd year as head coach at his alma mater. “I don’t think I can make anyone understand who hasn’t been there. I don’t.“I’ve always felt in life, you get a lot of things you have to overcome. There’s nothing like this when a human life is lost and you are there. I can’t describe it to you.”There was a moment of silence before the game for Jimenez and his family — that came after an introduction in English and Spanish.Boeheim said he’s been in touch with the Jimenez family.“I intend to try and do that as I can in the future,” he said. “This is isn’t about me, it doesn’t matter how I feel. It’s about how they feel and what’s happened to them. There’s just nothing I can say about it.”ADVERTISEMENT LATEST STORIES MOST READ Japeth Aguilar wins 1st PBA Finals MVP award for Ginebra Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski, a close friend of Boeheim, fought his emotions, too, when the two exchanged a warm hug before the game.“That was such an incredible environment. Everything was beautiful,” Krzyzewski said. “The support the fans gave the team and the support they gave Jim was great and such an emotional time. Jim has created a family. Going through this situation the whole family feels it and I could feel it.”Syracuse (18-8) plays three of its last four regular-season games on the road beginning Tuesday night at No. 8 North Carolina.“This could happen to anybody. It was one of those human things,” Krzyzewski said. “I’m sorry they happen, but they happen. The only way to get past it is to do the human things — the love, the support, the understanding. We’ll help him.“I told his staff, ‘Help my friend.’ And I told his team, ‘Help my friend.’ And I know the community will help him. That was beautiful what you all did. Wow! I get chills thinking about it. It shows how much he and his family is loved here, and rightfully so.“He’ll be good. He’s tough.

Theological Seminary at AMEU Gets L-GM Support

first_imgL-GM’s Rev. Emmanuel Giddings makes commitment to support AMEU’s theological seminary – Advertisement – One of Liberia’s largest education charities, the Liberia-Ghana Missions (L-GM), last Friday offered 10 scholarships and made a commitment to support the Bryant Theological Seminary at the African Methodist Episcopal University (AMEU) on Camp Johnson Road.The offer was made by the founder and Chief Executive Officer of the L-GM, Reverend Emmanuel Giddings, when he served as chief launcher of a scholarship fund drive hosted by the seminary.Rev. Giddings, an advocate for access to education for Liberians, recounted the benefits of scholarships to capacity building in any nation.“First of all, scholarships will help reduce the illiteracy rate in the country,” Rev. Giddings said.He described illiteracy as a “deadly disease” and added a quotation from Oxfam International statistics that say illiteracy among women rose to 90 percent after the Liberian civil war, while men’s rose to 75 percent.The L-GM says it currently supports at least 20 students, including five theological students at the AMEU, and announced that 6,000 students have enrolled in 500 schools as the entity’s direct beneficiaries of its educational assistance program for the 2016/2017 school year.Rev. Giddings disclosed that his institution provides assistance to students in technical and vocational disciplines as well as in colleges and universities in seven counties.A United Methodist cleric, Rev. Giddings obtained his theological education from the Gbarnga School of Theology before further education in the United States.Rev. Giddings credits Alfalit International president Joseph Milton for supporting education in Liberia.

Ducks strengthen position with win

first_imgGoaltender Jean-Sebastien Giguere had a groin injury in Anaheim’s last trip to the Shark Tank on Dec. 26, which helped San Jose close a 12-point gap in the division to three. The Ducks won just twice in the 11 games Giguere missed, but have won three of four since his return. He had 34 saves against the Sharks, allowing a pair of third-period goals to Jonathan Cheechoo that helped make the final margin respectable for San Jose. Mike Grier and Patrick Marleau also scored for the Sharks, who allowed the most goals they had all season at home. San Jose has won just once in its past fivegames. The Ducks got off to a fast start when Moen and Samuel Pahlsson teamed up midway through the first period to help Anaheim score twice in less than a minute. SAN JOSE – Travis Moen’s second goal capped the Ducks’ four-goal secondperiod, and they won the front half of a key home-and-home series with the San Jose Sharks 7-4 on Tuesday night. The Sharks hoped to sweep the two games to move into first place in the Pacific Division, but now need a win tonight in Anaheim just to remain within three points of the Ducks. There was a lot more distance between the teams in the first two periods, as the Ducks scored two goals within 32 seconds in the opening period and used the four-goal barrage in the second to take a 6-1 lead. Rob Niedermayer had a goal and two assists and Chris Pronger also assisted on two goals for the Ducks, who had their full roster healthy for the first time since December. center_img 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

A guide to safe and health eating this holiday season

first_imgRegistered Dietitian Marianne Bloudoff says the holiday season does offer the opportunity for health eating – if it’s done appropriately.“A meal of ham or turkey, vegetables, buns or stuffing, and a dessert have a good chance of having three or four food groups from Canada’s Food Guide – making it a balanced meal,” Bloudoff said.In order to change from a ‘good chance’ to a ‘great chance’, Bloudoff has a handful of helpful suggestions.“Offer sweet potatoes instead of, or along side white potatoes; include other colourful veggies like carrots, Brussels sprouts and beats; boast up the stuffing by using bread, adding cranberries or chopped apples, walnuts an finally chopped carrots; consider a dessert that includes fruit or dairy such as a fruit crumble or milk-based pudding,” Bloudoff explained.Advertisement “If you happen to consume undercooked or contaminated turkeys, you could become very ill,” says Environmental Health Officer Neelam Hayer. “People who are more prone to the illness generally include young children, elderly and those who are immunocompromised, therefore, it’s very important to eliminate any potential risks that can trigger illness in your family.”Hayer adds, “The key is to prevent temperature abuse and any cross-contamination.”For example, according to Hayer, fresh/uncooked turkey should be stored in the refrigerator and cooked within two -three days of purchase. Also when thawing, Hayer recommends it be done in temperatures no higher than 4 C (39 F).- Advertisement -“Some options for doing that include, doing it in the refrigerator or potentially under cold, running water,” Hayer detailed while cautioning against splash back – explaining the potential of it contaminating anything within a three feet radius.Before serving your turkey, Hayer insists you ensure the internal temperature is at least 75 C (167 F) before serving.Making wise choices for your holiday menu Advertisement Boudoff is also reminding holiday-goers that the season is not necessary about stuffing your face until a button pops, but rather absorbing the time spend with family, friends, and loved-ones.last_img read more

Environmental groups say NEB pipeline reviews should stop until reforms are passed

first_imgTrudeau campaigned in 2015 on the premise that Canadians had lost confidence in the NEB process after what he claimed were years of Conservative government meddling that made pipeline approvals foregone conclusions.The Liberals put in place interim measures at the NEB — such as increased consultations with aboriginal groups — to give more legitimacy to the Energy East and Trans Mountain reviews while the government reforms the federal body.The NEB review of TransCanada’s Energy East pipeline is on hold after protesters forced the cancellation of public consultations in Montreal at the end of August.Protesters demanded that two of the three board members overseeing the proposal resign after it was revealed they had met with former Quebec premier Jean Charest when he was a paid lobbyist for TransCanada.Advertisement Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain pipeline was approved by the NEB in May and the federal government still has to make a decision on whether to proceed with it.Speaking on behalf of letter signatory Environmental Defence, Patrick DeRochie acknowledged that several First Nations groups accepted the Kinder Morgan proposal, while pointing out that many also opposed it. MONTREAL, Q.C. – In a letter sent to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, more than 30 environmental and activist groups say that the current federal review process of energy projects needs to be shut down and overhauled immediately.According to the letter, which was also addressed to Natural Resources Minister Jim Carr, no pipeline projects should go forward until Justin Trudeau reforms the National Energy Board (NEB).Therefore, the group argues, that the current review of the Energy East pipeline proposal for Eastern Canada and the NEB’s decision to accept the expansion of the Trans Mountain pipeline in Alberta and British Columbia need to be annulled.- Advertisement -The activists say the NEB board members are in a conflict of interest and that First Nations communities are not being properly consulted.Moreover, they argue the review process doesn’t properly explain to citizens how Canada can build pipelines and expand Alberta oilsands production while also respecting the country’s greenhouse emission targets.Groups that signed the letter include Greenpeace and the Sierra Club Canada Foundation.Advertisementlast_img read more

This is all scores which equal or better the Standard Scratch Score of the course. Such competitions would include Re-Entry competitions, Society Golf, etc. It is the player’s responsibility to return such scores and they should be recorded in the Blue Book in the ladies locker room as soon as the competition ends. If relevant, you may also need to contact the Handicap Secretary ( e.g. if playing in another competition in a very short space of time )The Handicap Committee will consider and make a decision re any immediate adjustment. Further details of the rules applying to the above can be seen on www.ilgu.ieLadies who have not yet registered online, should try and contact a committee member who will register them if they do not have access to a computer.Sometimes, in our rush to the first tee, we forget to acknowledge the countless hours of work that goes on behind the scenes by many members who volunteer their valuable time. The work at the first tee is such an example. What brought this to my mind today, was the sight of our Junior Convenor, Catherine Cooke-Harkin, soaked to the skin bringing her junior charges around the course, running two separate competitions for the boys, a 9 hole and an 18 hole, concurrently.There it does not end, as she is also involved with Junior Golf Ireland bringing lots of new girls to the club to learn and enjoy the sport of golf. On the 9th, the 16th and the 23rd July volunteers are asked to give 1 hour maximum of your time between 5-6pm working with raw beginners, junior girls. It is not necessary to have undertaken the Child Awareness Course to help out here.The Lady Beginners course for €30 for 3 group lessons with our PRO Seamus Clinton continues and we are hungry for your old clubs you no longer want or need. Please leave them in the locker room, it is much appreciated.12th June McGees Butchers 18 hole competition Veronica McAteer won with 37points.
