Arwind Santos ready to take ‘kind guy’ Terrence Romeo under his wing

We should try to know him better and every person has a kindness within him or her.

Nimba United Thrash LPRC Oilers 2-0

first_imgFollowing a two week break due to the continuation of the just ended National County Sports Meet, the Liberia Football Association’s Cellcom National League yesterday resumed at the Antoinette Tubman Stadium with Nimba United thrashing LPRC Oilers 2-0.The match, which was poorly attended, saw the “Mountaineers” taking the lead in the 14th minute after Oilers’ goalkeeper Saylee Swen and his four defenders failed to clear the ball away from their defense.Oilers got an opportunity to level the score in the 16th minute after they were awarded a penalty; goalkeeper Swen with lots of confidence left his goalpost to take the penalty and ended up hitting the crossbar.Although Oilers were down 1-0 they continued to mount pressure on Coach Emmanuel Kekay’s boys, but wasted chances that came their way.Nimba United struggled to possess the ball but were able to hold their lead till the end of the first half.With high expectation from the few supporters of both teams, they returned to a second session marked by misplaced passes up to 15 minutes in the half.Coach Kaykay of Nimba United saw the gaps that were created and used break in time to talk to his team’s captain and made two substitutions that brought some changes in his team’s performance, and led to left-back Stanley Whitfield missing a shot from close range after receiving a cross from Edward Dean from the right flank.The “Mountaineers” kept their new style of play that led to Whitfield doubling the team’s advantage in the 83rd minute from a perfect coordination between Whitfield and Mustapha Lomell in front of their opponent’s defense.LPRC tried to get a consolation goal when Willington Seah took a left foot strike few yards away from the goal, but goalkeeper Emmanuel Deanneh brilliantly knocked the ball above the bar.Abduraman Brima of Nimba United, who was introduced in the second half, could have increased the tally to three through a one-on-one opportunity in added time, but missed the chance when his shot rolled few inches away from the right post.The three points collected by the “Mountaineers” pushed them up to fourth place with the same points as third place Keitrace FC, who will go against second place BYC today at the Blue Field.

UK envoy urges Govt to ensure equal rights among Guyanese

first_img…as LGBTQ community hosts annual Pride ParadeBritish High Commissioner to Guyana, Greg Quinn on Saturday joined the LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer) community in its second annual pride parade and urged the coalition Government to do what is necessary to ensure that Guyanese are treated equally.Former Education Minister and PPP MP Priya Manickchand at the parade on SaturdayBritish High Commissioner to Guyana, Greg Quin at the paradeSASOD’s Director Joel Simpson leads his contingent in the parade“Everybody in Guyana is entitled to exactly the same rights regardless of who they are, so I think the Government needs to be doing what they can to ensure that everybody has their rights.” Greg underscored.On this note, the High Commissioner further revealed that countries across the globe will be in support of advocating for fair and well-deserved rights within the LGBTQ community since this is merely what they need.“Human rights is universal; everybody is entitled to same rights as everybody else. All the LGBT community is here asking is to be accorded the same rights as any other citizens of Guyana and that is something that we across the world will support,” he stated.Being the second annual parade for the respective community, Director of SASOD, Joel Simpson in a brief interview with this publication stated that the event is being held with the expectation of a more confident display of gender and sexuality diversity without discrimination.“It’s the second pride parade and we are expecting a more confident display of gender and sexual diversity we are to celebrate who we are as LGBTQ people and to claim our public space, claim our rights to equal citizenship, claim our rights to exist and love who we love without any discrimination in the country.” Simpson related.The event was hosted as part of Guyana’s carnival celebrations under the theme “Come for carnival, stay for pride” when it was officially launched on May 28, and expected to last until June 3, 2019.“It doesn’t have a specific theme; I think it has many themes. The theme for the entire festival is “Come for carnival, stay for pride” because this came off the heels of Guyana carnival”, Simpson added.Even in a country where the rights of persons within the LGBTQ community isn’t recognised or popularised, scores of supporters decked out in their rainbow coloured costumes and outfits, journeyed the city streets and concluded at the Square of the Revolution, Georgetown, in an effort of advocating for their rights and proudly displaying who they are.Among the crowd, Opposition Member, Priya Manickchand and Canadian High Commissioner to Guyana, Lilian Chatterjee were some of the country’s top officials that participated in Saturday’s event.The first pride parade activity was held back in June of 2018 since the month is recognised as one to promote social and self-acceptance, achievements, legal rights and pride within the LGBT community.The parade was organised by the Society Against Sexual Orientation Discrimination (SASOD), the Guyana Rainbow Foundation (GuyBo) and Guyana Trans United.last_img read more

Angels have no answers

first_img“His command early in counts was off and he was behind too many hitters to try to work his way back into counts,” Manager Mike Scioscia said. “This was too good of an offense to do that and he paid a price early. Conversely, when he started to get ahead and had better command form the third inning on, he threw three good innings.” By then it was way too late. The cruel blow came in the third inning after Lackey gave up a one-out double to Youkilis. David Ortiz followed with a home run to right field on an 0-and-1 pitch. “The pitch to Ortiz was definitely the biggest mistake of the night,” Lackey said. “I wasn’t really trying to throw a strike there and I ended up giving him something to hit.” It was a mistake thrown to the worst possible guy. “We weren’t trying to give into him there with a base open,” catcher Mike Napoli said. “He’s a good hitter and got a pitch to hit and did something with it. John’s usually good with that kind of stuff. He knows situations. It was kind of surprising, but that’s what happened. You can’t go back and do anything about it.” A walk and a wild pitch to Manny Ramirez followed Ortiz’s home run and Mike Lowell singled in the fourth and final Red Sox run. “He actually pitched well,” Lowell said of Lackey. “You take away those two long balls and he was able to grind it out. They only used two pitchers; it’s not like the game got out of hand.” There was simply nothing the Angels could do about Beckett, who retired 19 consecutive batters after a leadoff single. It was tied for the third longest run of consecutive batters retired in postseason history. “He commanded a couple of pitches for strikes, the fastball and all of his offspeed stuff,” said the Angels’ Casey Kotchman, who was 0-for-3. “We really couldn’t get anything going. He threw his breaking ball for strikes. It was always Strike 1, Strike 2.” Despite having thrown 101 pitches, Beckett was allowed to take the mound for the ninth inning and finished off the Angels on a Garret Anderson fly ball to deep center field. “I didn’t want to get wrapped up in trying to strike a lot of guys out because those are the at-bats that end up killing your pitch count and you’re out after 51/3 innings because you have 120 pitches (limit),” Beckett said. “I was trying to get the outs as quick as possible.” After an off-day today, Friday’s game suddenly becomes a must-win situation, but the Angels have been here before. They have lost all four opening games of the ALDS in their history and still managed to win a World Series and advance to the American League Championship Series in 2005. Afterward, a defiant Lackey was not worried about his history against the Red Sox and still had a positive outlook. “I’ve had too much success to ever think like (negatively),” Lackey said. “I’ve won a Game 7. I’ve been given the ball for a reason. I’m not going to think like that. I’ll be back and this team will be back. It’s the first one to three. We’re not through after one game.” doug.padilla@sgvn.com160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! ALDS: Lackey struggles against Boston yet again while offense fizzles out. By Doug Padilla STAFF WRITER BOSTON – Fenway Park treated John Lackey just as expected Wednesday. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREChargers go winless in AFC West with season-ending loss in Kansas CityIt was loud, claustrophobic, abusive and downright unforgiving for the Angels’ ace, who succumbed to all the Boston Red Sox had to offer yet again. Even if Lackey could hit the rewind button, it hardly would have mattered. This tape has played before and this time it was a 4-0 loss to the Red Sox in Game 1 of the American League Division Series. Kevin Youkilis’ first-inning home run was really all playoff wizard Josh Beckett needed as the Red Sox starter pounded the strike zone to pitch the first postseason shutout since the Dodgers’ Jose Lima accomplished the feat in Game 2 of the 2004 National League Division Series against the St.Louis Cardinals. It was Beckett’s second consecutive postseason complete game, after one in Game 6 of the 2003 World Series, and his third career playoff complete game. He also extended his postseason scoreless streak to 18 innings. Lackey gave up five hits to the first nine Red Sox batters and eight to the first 14 as the Angels were buried after four innings. Including regular-season games, Lackey is now 1-7 against the Red Sox with a 6.24 ERA, and 1-5 at Fenway Park with a 7.43 ERA. last_img read more

Long-term loan rates edge still higher

Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Home shoppers, who’ve caught a break lately with moderating appreciation rates and ballooning inventory, got smacked by reality this week. Long-term interest rates hit their highest level in nearly four years. And there is not much of a spread between the traditionally cheaper adjustables anymore, either. Here’s what turned up in the weekly rate survey by mortgage giant Freddie Mac. The 30-year, fixed-rate mortgage averaged 6.49 percent for the week ending April 13. That was up from 6.43 percent the prior week and was the highest since mid-July of 2002. A year ago, the weekly survey had the 30-year rate averaging 5.91 percent. The rate on 15-year, fixed-rate mortgages, a popular choice for refinancing, averaged 6.14 percent this week, up from 6.10 percent last week. A year ago, the rate on this product was 5.46 percent. The one-year adjustable rate mortgage increased to 5.61 percent this week from 5.57 percent. A year ago, the rate averaged 4.30 percent. Rates on the five-year, hybrid adjustable averaged 6.13 percent this week, up from 6.11 percent in the prior week. A year ago it averaged 5.31 percent. Bottom line: Borrowing is getting more expensive. Of course, we’ve been spoiled by a protracted run of low rates over the past few years. And these rates are still consider low versus some other times. The financial pain is current, even though the wide range of home loan products has turned buying a house into a lot like buying a car. Or a plasma TV. “People focus on their monthly payment,” said Dan Blake, director of the San Fernando Valley Economic Research Center at California State University, Northridge. Some people will be able to absorb the increase. Others will have to settle for a less expensive home or act fast if they find one that’s priced right. And still others will be forced to rent for a while longer. Blake notes that rates have settled into a pattern of moving up for a while, then coming back down. Since rates are tied to the global economy, it’s hard to predict where they will head, he said. It’s a complicated dynamic but here’s an oversimplification of why. Foreign governments invest huge amounts of money in government securities because they are considered safe. And when they put a lot of money in Treasury bills, other government instruments and corporate securities, it tends to push down the rates that consumers pay. Now Blake said that some governments are pulling some money out or not putting as much in and that tends to push the long-term rates up. Then there is the job market. When it gets good, the rate picture turns bad for home buyers. Wall Street is now worried that that lower unemployment could drive up wages and thus inflation. For example a week ago the federal government said that the nation’s unemployment rate dipped to 4.7 percent in March. “The threat of higher inflation, as we all know, invariably leads to higher mortgage rates,” Frank Nothaft, Freddie Mac’s chief economist, said in a statement. And there has been talk that the 30-year rate could hit 7 percent by year’s end. The rising rates have not had much of an impact yet on the San Fernando Valley market and a better sense of its direction comes Monday with release of March numbers. “What we’re seeing is certainly not a repeat of the last three years of escalating sales and prices,” said Jim Link, the executive vice president of the Van Nuys-based Southland Regional Association of Realtors. “Sales are being made and buyers are negotiating and sellers have to be realistic.” greg.wilcox@dailynews.com (818) 713-3743last_img read more

Teacher Strike: “Every single one of us would rather be inside”

first_imgThe on-going dispute between ASTI and the Department of Education is set to continue for a second day with over 500 secondary schools shut across the country. A number of other proposed strikes are planned and the dispute centres on the refusal of ASTI members to cover break times, absent colleagues and free periods.A separate row also broke out yesterday, which forced additional schools to take strike action after a dispute over substitution and supervision pay. On the first day of the strike over equal pay for newly qualified staff, in the Thursday before the Halloween mid-term, 507 schools out of 735 closed.The walkouts are planned to run on five other days this month before culminating in a two-day shutdown of schools on December 6 and 7.However, many teachers claimed they were locked out of their schools, and that they were ready to teach.Sinéad Farrell, an English and special needs teacher at Coláiste Choilm boys school in Swords, Co Dublin,  said teachers were “disheartened” having turned up to teach.Sinead told The Irish Independent, “We’re ready to work and the gates aren’t open, so it’s essentially a lock-out,” she said.“Teachers don’t want to be standing outside their school with a lock on their gate, but this is what we are reduced to now, this is what we have to do.”Her colleague Joan Parsons – an English and religion teacher – said: “We’d all rather be inside.“Every single one of us would rather be in school than standing out here.”At Loreto College in Dublin, Deirdre Scully, who teaches English and drama, said her colleagues were “very unhappy” at the situation.Teacher Strike: “Every single one of us would rather be inside” was last modified: November 8th, 2016 by Mark ForkerShare 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

She Cranes lose third game at Netball World Cup 2019

first_imgThe She Cranes have now lost three games at the Netball World Cup 2019. (PHOTO/Courtesy)Netball World CupJamaica 61-48 UgandaLiverpool Arena, LiverpoolThursday, 10-07-2019After a decent start to the Netball World Cup 2019, things have fallen apart for the She Cranes as the tournament nears its climax.After winning three of their first four games, Vincent Kiwanuka’s side have now lost two in a row.On Thursday night, they lost 48-61 to Jamaica, meaning that they will now only fight for 5th spot at most.In the game played at the Liverpool Arena, the She Cranes once again had a slow start, losing the first quarter 9-13.Jhaniele Fowler who haunted Uganda all night then produced a game-winning performance in the second, scoring 20 goals as Jamaica took it 22-11 to open a 15 goal lead at halftime.By this point, the She Cranes looked out of sorts and never looked like coming back, eventually losing the third 14-16.In the last quarter, Jamaica took their feet off the gas peddle, allowing Uganda to win it 14-10 but the damage was already done.Once again, Uganda’s captain Peace Proscovia impressed, shooting at 100% as she converted all of her 28 goal attempts. Racheal Nanyonga and Stella Oyella could not follow suit as their shooting was off on the night.Uganda who have now lost to England, South Africa and Jamaica, can only finish as high as 5th at the tournament.They now take on Malawi on Friday in the placement match. A win for Kiwanuka’s side will see them take on the winner between Jamaica and Zimbabwe to determine who finishes 5 and 6.However, if the She Cranes lose to Malawi, they will have finished 8th, the same position they managed in 2015.Starting Seven Vs Jamaica:Lilian Ajio (GD), Ruth Meeme (WA), Stella Oyella (GS), Jessica Achan (C), Namuwaya Muhayimuna (C), Racheal Nanyonga (GA), Sylvia Nanyonga (WD)Thursday Results-South Africa 47-58 England-Jamaica 61-48 Uganda-Trinidad & Tobago 43-43 Scotland-Zimbabwe 43-59 Malawi-Australia 50-49 New Zealand-Northern Ireland 46-43 BarbadosFriday FixtureRound 5/8-Zimbabwe Vz Jamaica-Malawi Vs UgandaSaturday FixtureSemis-Australia Vs South Africa-New Zealand Vs EnglandComments Tags: JAMAICANetball World cup 2019Peace ProscoviaRachael Nanyongashe cranesStella OyellaVincent Kiwanukalast_img read more
