DAY THREE SUMMARY- SENIORS 2006 NTL

first_imgDay 3 at the seniors NTL was hot and not just in the competition…the weather had taken a turn for the worst, bringing out the swimming pools and the doctors. It was not to last though, as the storm clouds rolled in for the final rounds of the day (thankfully no rain, just a little heat relief). The competition was also heating up as teams fired up as they were heading for the finals…MENS 30’s: It was day three that saw the Sydney Mets record their first non-win, well sort of, they didn’t lose but instead managed a draw against the Sydney Scorpions. The Scorpions scored in the final minute of play to seal the 4-4 draw.The Suns and Defence Warriors fill the remaining top four spots, with the fourth placed Warriors facing the fifth placed Sharks tomorrow morning in a qualifying final for the last semi final position. It will certainly take a mighty effort from the Suns, Scorpions, Warriors or Sharks to bring down the Mets, aiming for their fourth title in a row.WOMENS 30’s: After a tight Womens 30’s series, the showdown begins tomorrow with the semi nfinals set to produce some brilliant matches.The Scorpions may have finished undefeated, but this will not matter to their cross-town rivals the Mets, who will be keen to upset the favourites in their semi.In the second semi it will be the Southern Suns and the Rustlers, who both finished strongly with 6-3 and 5-3 wins over the Sharks and Cyclones respectively.     MENS 35’S: The Mens 35’s top four for the semi finals is signed, sealed and delivered. The Sharks will face the Rustlers in the first semi final, while the Mets and Scorpions will play in the second one. The Sharks have not been troubled yet, although they were not entirely convincing over both the Mets and the Scorpions, both times winning 5-3. Tomorrow’s action in the Mens 35’s will certainly be tough.WOMENS 35’S: The Womens 35’s still takes the cake for the most even division, with the Sharks clear on top with 6 wins and 1 loss, with just one match tomorrow morning before finals.However, second through to fifth is an entirely different story, as the Rustlers, Suns and Hornets have all recorded 3 wins apiece, while the Eagles have recorded two wins. This division is up and down like a yo-yo and with the finals series being a straight 1-2 grand final. Stay tuned tomorrow; it’s set to be a cracker!MENS 40’S: Day three action saw some good matches in the Mens 40’s division, with the Mets holding off a spirited Barbarians attack 5-3, a great 3-2 win for the Cyclones over the Rustlers and the Sharks taking 4 touchdowns off the Scorpions, recording a 7-4 loss.At the end of the day it was the Scorpions who were untroubled at the top of the ladder and who will go through to the first semi final against the winner of the fourth vs fifth quarter final the Sydney Mets, while the Suns face the Sharks in tomorrow’s second semi final.In the fourth vs fifth quarter final, the Defence came from 2-0 down at half time, to force the game into a drop off, where the drop off lasted for almost 8 minutes before the Mets crossed the line for the winning score. They’ll have their work cut out against the force of the Scorpions in tomorrow’s semi final.The remaining teams will fight it out for the Plate final tomorrow.WOMENS 40’S: The Womens 40’s finished off their round matches with some great Touch Footy, a 1-0 win for the Eagles over the Cyclones was a great defensive exhibition, while the Scorpions 4-3 win over the Rustlers was a touchdown for touchdown affair.The Eagles win saw them through to the final four, facing the Sydney Scorpions in the first semi final, while the Suns will face the Cobras in the second semi final.MENS 45’S: The moment of the day in the Mens 45’s had to be when the boys in the Fishbowl pointed out TFA’s Member Services Manager Peter Topp in his field one match at 5:40pm…they very kindly dedicated the next song…’Top Cat’…to the Fishbowl Favourite. Great work Toppy.The day three action in the Mens 45’s saw the ACT side narrowly miss a semi final berth, their late charge not enough to win them fourth position.The Cobras finished undefeated with 4-1 and 6-2 wins over the Eagles and Suns respectively sealing their unbeaten run and their position in the first semi final against the Suns.The Mets and Northern Eagles will face off in the second semi final tomorrow.MENS 50’S: The heat on day three seemed to bring the front runners back to the pack in the Mens 50’s, with several close games…The Cyclones held off the Cobras 3-2, while the Rustlers and Scorpions drew 2-2 and most other games were decided by no more than 1-2 touchdowns.Tomorrow, the Hornets will face the Cobras in the first semi final, while the Rustlers and Scorpions will follow up their earlier draw with another meeting in the second semi final.last_img read more

first_imgCrystal Palace boss Hodgson: I’d welcome new strikerby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveCrystal Palace boss Roy Hodgson has opened the door to signing a new striker in January.Hodgson was asked about his market plans after victory over Wolves.He said, “We’ve got a man coming back we hope. Benteke trains with us tomorrow and obviously he’ll be fully back with us in the course of the next week. If he gets match fit then that will be to an extent a new signing this year because we’ve hardly seen him.“If there are other players that the club can bring in, I certainly won’t be averse to that because we have a very small squad and we haven’t had a lot to back us up at the minute. We’re on the lookout of course and the chairman and technical director are anxious to do what they can to give me and my coaching staff more support, but it’s not easy certainly when you have limited transfer resources.” TagsTransfersAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

first_img​Arsenal hero Petit: Nothing has changed since Wenger leftby Freddie Taylora day agoSend to a friendShare the loveArsenal legend Emmanuel Petit does not see any differences between the end of Arsene Wenger’s time at the club and their performances now.Unai Emery has received time and backing at the club, as he is now into his second season as manager.But their performances and results are no better than what Wenger was achieving, and Emery arguably has a more balanced squad at his disposal.Petit told reporters: “I can understand why many Arsenal supporters are losing patience with Unai Emery.”As a manager he has a bad record away from home – not just with Arsenal, but also while he was in Spain.”Arsenal showed no character and it p***es me off because it has been the case so many times away from home.”The starting XI he picked against Sheffield United was strange.”It’s difficult after an international break when you have to play teams that don’t have as many players involved in the international fixtures.”But you know what to expect when you go to Bramall Lane – you know the qualities of the Sheffield United team.”They fight, especially in front of their home crowd, and they get balls into the box and put pressure on at set pieces.”That’s what they did against Liverpool and Chelsea.”But more importantly they didn’t show any technical quality on the pitch.”They gave away so many simple balls and had no inspiration, imagination or creativity.”They looked so heavy. This isn’t Arsenal – you need to take the ball and show what you’ve got.”But I haven’t seen that in years.

Sol Bamba asks fans to kick racism out of football

first_imgThe Cardiff City defender hopes the supporters can report racist incidents in order to kick racism out of football.Cardiff City defender Sol Bamba hopes racism can be forced out of football soon.But to do so, the footballer believes fans should do their part and report any racist incidents.“What upset me is that only one in three reports it. I think we need to do more because unfortunately, people think, if we report it, nothing’s going to come out of it. That’s the problem,” Bamba told Sky Sports.“There’s no place for it in this game now, or society in 2019. I think as a whole, we have to do more.”“I feel like we made progress, but we’ve gone back now. Recently a few incidents happened in games, in Italy and here. We made two steps forward and now three steps back,” he added.“It has to be completely gone now because there’s no place for it in the game.”“People have to make sure they report it, and when they do, there has to be a punishment,” he explained.“Football’s a beautiful game. We want to talk about goals and celebrations, but if they don’t do it right, the club has to be punished and the fans have to be punished.”Harry Maguire, Manchester UnitedLiverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.“The punishment has to be drastic. Proper punishments, no two-match bans, because that doesn’t make any difference,” Bamba concluded.Sol Bamba started his professional career in Paris Saint-Germain in 2004.He has also played in Dunfermline Athletic, Hibernian, Leicester City, Trabzonspor, Palermo, and Leeds United.He joined Cardiff City in 2016.Bamba has suffered racism all through his life and he hopes he can live to see it kicked out of the football world.Crazy happy with this win, fighting with all the love we have for this club.

THREE BIDS IN FOR LONG BAY HILLS GOVT SCHOOL

first_img Education Minister tours schools this week Related Items:akierra missick, bidding, government school, long bay hills Recommended for you Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Ministry of Education introduces pilot program Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 02 Dec 2014 – The tender process for the new government high school to be built in Long Bay Hills is said to be still open. Government had announced it would extend the time; the Minister of Education and Deputy Premier Akierra Missick in a recent press conference had expressed disappointment that there were no bids up to that point. Yesterday, the PDM confirmed that there are three bids in for the job now. The delay had reportedly been that the money for the project was insufficient. Apart of the budget supplementary is a move to get $1.6 million dollars more for the construction of the school. Hon Clarence Selver of the PDM said the government is playing games, that he questions whether they can ever deliver on their budget and that the administration, due to its late budget lost four months within this new fiscal period.

JAMAICA Prime Minister calls on Church to preach against violence

first_img Related Items: Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#Jamaica, January 5, 2018 – Kingston – Prime Minister, the Most Hon. Andrew Holness, has called on church leaders to preach against crime and violence, as it is undermining the family structure.“Bring it to your pulpit.  We cannot allow much of what is happening, particularly the abuse that is happening within families,” he said.The Prime Minister was speaking at the 13th annual National Gathering of Heal the Family, Heal the Nation, held at the National Arena in Kingston on January 3.   Mr. Holness also challenged the church to speak out against family members committing sexual abuse against minors.    He argued that much of these kinds of abuse result in the perpetuation of greater physical abuse such as beatings from parents, who are supposed to protect their children.“If you see something like that, it is not right. It cannot be accepted practice in our culture.   We must expose it and preach against it. If you see someone suffering quietly, reach out to them,” he encouraged.The Prime Minister said the church’s capacity for counselling and outreach must be used to aid those affected by abuse, as this represents a “practical way we can start to address the issue of violence… which has become a part of our social transaction”.   Meanwhile, Mr. Holness hailed the chief organizers of the event, BishopDr. Delford Davis, and his wife, Minister Dr. Petrova Davis, of the Power of Faith Ministries International, for staging it over the last 13 years.   For her part, Custos of St. Andrew, Dr. Patricia Dunwell, also commended   Dr. Davis “for his steadfastness of purpose” in conceptualising the event and his commitment to healing the families of the nation.Dr. Dunwell, who delivered an address on behalf of the Governor-General, indicated that strong families represent the foundation of a nation worthy of respect from its neighbours and people of the world.The event was held in partnership with the Jamaica Umbrella Group of Churches under the theme, ‘Jamaica is God’s Place, So is my House’. It brought together members of a number of denominations to pray for the nation, families and Jamaica’s leadership.Also in attendance were Cabinet Ministers and Head of the Jamaica Constabulary Force, Commissioner George Quallo.

Tough Period for FirstHalf Consumer Circulation

first_imgMeanwhile, chief competitor Time went in the opposite direction. It purged 72 percent of its verified subscription while increasing paid circulation by 3.3 percent. Single copy sales jumped 16 percent and total circulation was up almost 2 percent.The Week dropped 3 percent on the newsstand, but managed a 2 percent gain in overall circulation. Another verified subscription jumper was TV Guide magazine, going from about 8,000 to 63,000, a 695 percent jump. The celebrity category, long a newsstand stalwart and often carrying overall sales on its back, declined noticeably at retail. As mentioned, People dropped in single copy sales by 10.5 percent. US Weekly was down 17 percent. OK! fell 21.3 percent. In Touch was down 16 percent while Star dropped 16.7 percent. Total circulation for the category faired slightly better, except for In Touch–which had a terrible first half–and Star. In Touch fell 10 percent in paid subscriptions and 15.7 percent in total circ. Star lost 7 percent in total circulation, but paid subs were up 13 percent. On the business front, Bloomberg Businessweek lost a significant 34 percent on the newsstand, boosted verified by 19 percent and managed to remain flat on total circulation. The Economist dropped 12 percent at retail and edged up by 2.6 percent in overall circ. Forbes fell 8 percent for the period in single copies, but remained flat in total circ. Harvard Business Review faired much better at retail, jumping 30 percent and managing a 2 percent overall circ gain. ABC released its first-half 2011 FAS FAX report today and the numbers reflect a tough reporting period for publishers. The newsstand held back many attempts to gain circ, and overall circulation-paid, verified and analyzed non-paid-dipped into the negatives for about 45 percent of the U.S. magazines in the report. It wasn’t all doom and gloom, however. The women’s category managed to remain relatively even for the period when compared against the first half of 2010. But again, single copy sales were the fly in the ointment. Cosmopolitan (-2.6 percent), Elle (-9 percent), Glamour (-17.5 percent), O, the Oprah Magazine (-6.4) all dropped on the newsstand. Allure (.6 percent) and Vogue (12.7 percent) did better. All titles, however, remained relatively flat with low single digit or very slight drops in total circulation.And despite Cosmo‘s dip in single copy sales, it still topped the list on that front, even beating People, at almost 1.6 million copies sold for the period. Surprisingly, People dipped 10.5 percent in single copy sales in the first half. On the weekly news front, Newsweek goosed its verified subscriptions by 95 percent, jumping from almost 38,000 to about 74,000, while paid subscriptions dropped almost 8 percent. Single copy sales eked out a 2.8 percent gain, but total circ edged down 5 percent. last_img read more

The mood — while tempered — was celebratory. Jon Stewart was the show’s host. Alicia Keys would go on to be the night’s biggest winner with five wins (including the award for Best New Artist), and four-time Latin GRAMMY winner Alejandro Sanz made his GRAMMY stage debut with a little help from GRAMMY-winning R&B trio Destiny’s Child.Sanz, who’d just made headlines for being the first Spanish-language artist to record and release a live album under MTV’s Unplugged franchise in November 2001, hit the stage to sing his 2000 hit single “Quisiera Ser,” alongside Michelle Williams, Kelly Rowland and Beyoncé Knowles (who was just mere months away from being the solo powerhouse we now have to come to know as simply Beyoncé).Sang in Spanish, the chorus roughly translates in English to mean: I wanted to be the air escaping from your laughter/I wanted to be the salt to smart your wounds/I wanted to be the blood that you involve with your life/I wanted to be the dream that you’d never share and the garden of your joy in the party of your skin.While the Madrid native didn’t take home any awards that night, he would go on to win 14 more Latin GRAMMY Awards and three GRAMMY Awards. Sanz was recently named the 2017 Latin Recording Academy Person of the Year.

The price would be cheaper than Tidal’s and Deezer’s subscriptions, which cost $20 per month. Spotify and Apple don’t have high-definition streaming options.”It’s a better bit rate, better than CD quality,” an unnamed source told MWB. “Amazon is working on it as we speak: they’re currently scoping out how much catalog they can get from everyone and how they’ll ingest it.”Originally published April 26 at 10:58 a.m. PT.Update, at 11:09 a.m. PT: Added more details. • Mentioned Above Amazon Echo (2017,Heather Gray Fabric) $99 0 Apple Amazon Apple Amazon Echo Review • Amazon’s new Echo improves upon the original, slashes the price Preview • A new Amazon Echo is here.

X-ray: NASA/CXC/SAO/J.DePasquale; IR: NASA/JPL-Caltech; Optical: NASA/STScI On April 25, thanks to the newly reopened LIGO (Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory) scientists observed something spectacular: a ripple in space-time that suggests a collision between two incredibly dense neutron stars. The interesting part: The collision most likely took place 500 million years ago.The LIGO, alongside the European-based Virgo detector, registered the gravitational waves after being reopened in April. The facilities had been closed for upgrades. Scientists hope more observations like this will be made in the near future.And the most important discovery may be yet to come. April 26, the day after LIGO observed the collision, scientists spotted another candidate source that added a ripple of drama to the whole situation: a potential collision between a neutron star and a black hole. Sci-Tech Now playing: Watch this: If confirmed, this will be the first time scientists have registered such a collision.”The universe is keeping us on our toes,” said Patrick Brady, a professor of physics at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.The only issue: The signal for this particular collision was weak, which complicates things.”It’s like listening to somebody whisper a word in a busy cafe,” explained Brady, “it can be difficult to make out the word or even to be sure that the person whispered at all. It will take some time to reach a conclusion about this candidate.”The possible black hole/neutron star collision is thought to have taken place 1.2 billion light years away. LIGO-Virgo has three separate facilities, and the event was spotted by all three, which enabled scientists to pinpoint — to 3% of the total sky — where the event took place.As for the other neutron star collision — that’s proved a bit trickier. Only two of the three facilities registered that event, which means astronomers will have to scan 25% of the sky to find the source. Good luck with that.”The search for explosive counterparts of the gravitational-wave signal is challenging due to the amount of sky that must be covered and the rapid changes in brightness that are expected,” said Brady. “The rate of neutron star merger candidates being found with LIGO and Virgo will give more opportunities to search for the explosions over the next year.”Since being turned back on, LIGO, combined with Virgo, have also spotted three black hole collisions. It’s been a busy month.

Behold the incredible oneofakind and flyable aircraft at the Planes of Fame

first_imgWelcome to the Planes of Fame Air Museum. Geoffrey Morrison/CNET The Planes of Fame Air Museum lives up to its name. Out front is one of the most famous planes of the 20th century: a Boeing B-17. This example was actually the last B-17 on active duty, and was used in the filming of the ’60s TV show Twelve O’Clock High.  If you watched Hulu’s remake of Catch-22 then you saw another of the museum’s planes, their flyable B-25. Several other aircraft here were featured in movies and TV shows, and others are the sole survivors of their type. The rarest aircraft here is the only remaining original and still flying Mitsubishi Zero in the world, with the original Nakajima Sakae radial engine. It also appeared in Tora, Tora, Tora and much, much later, Michael Bay’s Pearl Harbor.Many of the rare aircraft at the museum are actually airworthy, often thanks to the on-site restoration shop and its dedicated team. All of this makes for a rather fascinating museum. Let’s take a look around. Building a real flying Iron Man Suit with Adam Savage These fabulous fliers at the Planes of Fame museum want to live forever Historic raritiesOne of the rarest, and certainly one of the weirdest, planes in the collection is the Ryan FR Fireball. In the front is a radial engine, quite typical for a WWII aircraft. Behind the cockpit, however, is an early jet engine, the General Electric J31. The plane was able to fly on either, or both, engines. The museum’s example is the only one left and was restored on site.planes-of-fame-43-of-58The Planes of Fame museum has a small boneyard of planes awaiting restoration. Geoffrey Morrison/CNET There’s also an example of the single-engined Heinkel He 162, one of the earliest jet interceptors. It’s one of two on display in the US.The collection of Japanese WWII aircraft is one of the most impressive in the world, headlined by the aforementioned Zero. It was captured in Saipan, then brought to the US for testing. It was flown by numerous pilots to get a sense of its characteristics, including none other than Charles Lindbergh. planes-of-fame-32-of-58 Geoffrey Morrison/CNET In the same hangar there’s one of only two surviving Yokosuka D4Y Suisei dive bombers, one of only two German-designed rocket-powered Mitsubishi J8M interceptors and the only surviving Mitsubishi J2M3 Raiden. The museum is also restoring an Aichi D3A2 Val to flying condition.There are even parts and fuselage of the first airplane to fly around the world nonstop, the B-50 Lucky Lady II, but it’s awaiting restoration.

About once a month the museum flies select aircraft. It’s worth checking out when and what. I spent about half my day at Planes of Fame, and the other half at Yanks Air Museum and its fascinating boneyard, which is conveniently located on the other side of the same airport as this museum.  Combining both makes for an excellent day of some amazing historical aircraft.

Simbus Vantha Rajavathaan Varuven Karthis Dev turn out to be duds in

first_imgDev and Vantha Rajavathaan Varuven.PR HandoutActor Simbu and Karthi have not started the year on a positive note as their movies failed to strike the chord with the viewers. The former’s Vantha Rajavathaan Varuven and the latter’s Dev were eagerly awaited by fans following good hype, but in the end, it could not keep the cash registers ringing.Since Simbu was returning after Mani Ratnam’s Chekka Chivantha Vaanam, people had high expectations on Vantha Rajavathaan Varuven. The film was supposed to be released in January but got delayed due to Rajinikanth’s Petta and Ajith Kumar’s Viswasam. The movie was marketed well and opened to mixed reviews.However, Vantha Rajavathaan Varuven did not pull the audience to theatres in big numbers. The content was not bad, yet the cine-goers did not show interest to watch it in theatres. The general opinion among the trade trackers was that the viewers were not keen to watch films in theatres after masala entertainers like Petta and Viswasam.It was not the case with Dev as the movie was criticised for his poorly-written story. After delivering a few hits in recent years, Karthi came up with below-average content.Not just Vantha Rajavathaan Varuven and Dev, Oviyaa’s 90 Ml, which once again had Simbu in a special role, and Nayanthara’s Airaa had garnered decent buzz. But both the films have failed to live up to the viewers’ expectations.However, Simbu and Karthi can still bounce back this year with their movies like Maanadu and Kaithi, while Nayan has quite a few releases this year that include Kolaiyuthir Kaalam, Mr Local, Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy and Vijay’s Thalapathy 63.last_img read more

Agitators sceptical of PMs no quota announcement

first_imgQuota reform movement. Prothom Alo File PhotoDemonstrating job seekers and students have expressed their doubt about the implementation of prime minister Sheikh Hasina’s announcement of the annulment of quota system in public service exams.They said this after the PM on Wednesday said that there will be no quota system in the public services from now on.“We are upset about the prime minister’s announcement to repeal the quota system. We sought reform, not annulment of the system,” said Yakub Ali, a job seeker.The agitating job seekers and students further said the quota system is still a necessity as there are many sections of the people who are lagging behind.Asking why the government is planning to repeal the quota system instead of reforming it, Rashed, another job seeker, said, “Quota system is a necessity for the ethnic minority and differently-abled people.”About the PM’s announcement, Bangladesh Sadharon Chhatra Odhikar Songrokhon Parishad (Action Council for General Students’ Rights) leaders said they will share their views on Thursday morning after reviewing the speech of the prime minister.Parishad joint conveners Faruk Hossain and Md Rashed Khan said this in the afternoon.last_img read more
