One of RSPL’s ‘most intriguing’ finales ever – PFAJ’s Anderson salutes MBU as champions dominate awards

first_img COACH OF THE YEAR Montego Bay United Football Club captured the most awards at the Professional Football Association of Jamaica (PFAJ)/Red Stripe Premier League (RSPL) presentation ceremony on Thursday night at the Courtleigh Auditorium in New Kingston. Chairman of the PFAJ Don Anderson described the season as one of the most interesting. “It has been one of the most intriguing coming to an end. MBU has been most consistent in three years by competing in the last three finals and winning two times,” Anderson said. “I salute MBU. However, Portmore’s Michael Binns scored a goal in the final that was worthy of a World Cup final,” he shared. He admitted that there were challenges along the way. “Personally, throughout my 37 years in administration, my firm belief is that off the field issues must be dealt with around the table. Football needs us all, so let us work together,” he also added. The 2015-16 champions collected the coveted title and winning cash incentive of $2.5 million, plus 35 medals, while beaten finalists Portmore United walked away with $1.5 million and 25 silver medals. Last season’s champions, Arnett Gardens, finished third and were rewarded $1 million and medals, while Humble Lion received $500,000 for their fourth-place finish in the 12-team league. MBU were the best defensive and top-scoring team. Their striker, Owayne Gordon, received four individual awards. Gordon, who missed the final last Sunday at the Montego Bay Sports Complex in Catherine Hall, received Round Three top striker for scoring 10 goals, the leading goalscorer with 20 goals, the Most Valuable Player and the Tony Burrowes Player Personality Award. MBU’s Jacomena Barrett won the goalkeeper of the year award for the third consecutive season, while former national player Paul ‘Tegat’ Davis won the Winning Coach award, and Dwayne Ambusley won the Winning Captain award. Marcel Gayle of first-time team in the Premier League the University of the West Indies FC, won the Coach of the Year award. Portmore United won the regular season award for the team that finished on most points and were also the team with the most wins. Junior Flemmings, who is on loan from Tivoli Gardens to MLS club New York Red Bull, was the Junior Player of the Year. MBU’s Dino Williams was the Round One top goal scorer with six goals, while Cory Burke, who started the season at Rivoli United before transferring to MoBay, scored the most goals (six) in Round Two. Boys’ Town FC won the FIFA Fair Play award, while the top referee was Valdin Ledgister and top assistant referee was Richard Washington. The RSPL best XI players were: Damian Hyatt (Arnett Gardens), Ladale Ritchie (MBU), Oneil Thompson (Arnett), Khareem Manning (Portmore United), Rosario Harriott (Harbour View), Ricardo Morris (Portmore), Andrew Vanzie (Humble Lion), Renae Lloyd (Arnett), Owayne Gordon (MBU), and Dino Williams (MBU).last_img read more

Glasgow returns as UGSS President

first_imgRon Glasgow returns for a second term as the President of the University of Guyana Student Society (UGSS) with renewed vigour to continue the work he commenced to improve the campus experience.Re-elected UGSS President Ron GlasgowGlasgow won against another visionary student, Brian Smith, who coalesced with Denroy Tudor with the hopes of taking command of the transformation process of UG.The UGSS elections were held on September 28 and very few students voted despite rigorous campaigning by both sides.Nonetheless, the student body in addition to electing a president, voted for representatives of each faculty: Agriculture and Forestry, Health Sciences, Natural Sciences, Social Sciences, Education and Humanities, Earth and Environmental Sciences and Technology.During a recent interview with Guyana Times, Glasgow said his plan for the enhancement of the student experience is to boost club creation, to stimulate club activity, to form Memorandums of Understanding (MoUs) with other universities, to improve sporting and recreational facilities, among others.He explained that there are not enough clubs available on campus, only 14 clubs with a student population of close to 8000: “It’s pretty insignificant and out of the 14 clubs, only six are active,” he pointed out.Glasgow said he will push for the creation of more clubs, as well as the stimulation of existing clubs.“We need places where students can go and express themselves, express their hobbies,” he stated, noting that there is more to the college experience other than academics. Glasgow noted too that MoUs with other universities will provide a lot of benefits for the student population, such as foreign exchange programmes, research and intercampus association and development.He also hopes to continue the improvement of existing sporting facilities since the current structures are too substandard and are far from encouraging the involvement in on-campus sporting activities.Glasgow also wants to construct a recreational centre that will be the hub for students to go have fun playing games and being social.last_img read more

Bong Massacre Survivors Get US$11,000 Resource Center

first_imgA groundbreaking ceremony for the construction of a US$11,000 Peace Palava Resource Center (PPRC) in Kpolokpala Town, Bong County, has been launched.The PPRC’s initiative is been implemented under the auspices of the Universal Peace Federation (UPF) with generous donations from support partners around the world.The main person behind the construction of the resource center in Bong County is Ambassador Beverly Goll Yekeson.Regrettably, Kpolokpala Town is the notorious venue where the Liberia Peace Council (LPC) allegedly massacred more than 500 Liberian citizens in 1994.LPC was one of the warring factions in Liberia’s 15-year civil war.Speaking at the groundbreaking recently in the Bong town, Nimba County lawmaker Ricks Y. Toweh urged all Liberians irrespective of political and socio-economic backgrounds to cultivate the virtue of forgiveness.Lawmaker Toweh also urged everyone, including the massacre survivors that they should “swallow” the bitterness of the past and embrace the cardinal virtues of forgiveness and reconciliation.“Consider and accept the PPRC project as symbol that would end the tears from eyes and minds for the overall development, growth and progress of Kpolokpala Town in Bong County,” Rep. Toweh admonished the survivors.He also explained that UPF Ambassador Yekeson, support partners and team of workers have come through the grace God to assist the citizens and residents of Kpolokpala to move on with their lives in peace, harmony, forgiveness and reconciliation.In recognition of the PPRC’s vitality to residents of the town, he donated five bundles of zinc as an initial contribution and promised to support the completion of the project in Kpolokpala Town.In remarks, survivors Reverend John K. Kennedy and Joseph Katama narrated the gruesome murder of their kinsmen, including women and children at the hands of the LPC fighters during the 1994 famous Gbarnga fall.“We took all the bodies of those who were killed that fateful morning, with machetes and axes to the bush. This flat rock is where our brothers and sisters were murdered in 1994 by the LPC fighters; it is the symbol of their graves,” Kennedy and Katama narrated.For her part, survivor Betty Katama, with tears rolling down her cheeks pointed out that her 14-year-old daughter was among the more than 500 persons murdered during the onslaught of the LPC forces on Kpolokpala Town in Bong County.“I personally want the leaders of LPC to appear before us and openly apologize and seek our total forgiveness and reconciliation,” Madam Katama pleaded.Earlier two elders and town chief of Kpolokpala welcomed Amb. Beverly Yekeson and co-workers and pledged to work and cooperate in the implementation of the peace palava resource center.The town’s elders extended thanks and appreciation to Mr. Yekeson and team for thinking about them during these critical times in the country.“We will ever remember and cherish this gesture of this peace symbol that will serve as fond memories in our hearts and minds,” citizens and residents said.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Rupununi Festival promises exotically soulful experience

first_imgThe annual Rupununi Music and Arts Festival was officially launched on Friday at Colgrain House, Camp Street, Georgetown, and organisers have promised nothing but a soulful experience in an exotic location surrounded by the lush greenlands of the Rupununi. The event is slated for February 16-18, at the Manari Ranch, just a stone’s throw away from the bustling town of Lethem in Region Nine (Upper Takutu-Upper Essequibo).From left: Organiser/artiste of the Festival, Gavin Mendonca; Organiser of the Festival Ronald D’Agrella; Director of the Festival, Bob Ramdhanie; Indigenous People’s Affairs Minister Sydney Allicock; and Permanent Secretary of the Indigenous People’s Affairs Ministry, Alfred KingFestival Director, Bob Ramdhanie, said the weekend’s event will include a range of activities and a number of performances by both local and international creative arts groups.“During the day we wish to create space between 10:00 am to 4 pm (16:00h) so that visitors to the festival can leave the festival if they choose to and visit the neighbourhood and other sites and places of interest within the Rupununi. But for those who are staying on site all day, we will have arts and music and reading workshops, so people are engaged all the time,” Ramdhanie noted.According to the Director, he is working towards constructing a village, within a two-year period, which will afford visitors the opportunity to camp, go for nature hikes and experience nature at its best.Sitting in for the Indigenous Affairs Minister was Permanent Secretary Alfred King, who gave the Ministry’s full support towards the successful execution of the festival. He commended the organisers of the event for preserving the Indigenous culture through workshops and noted that the event will create jobs for some 80 persons in the region.Guyana Tourism Authority (GTA) Senior Marketing Officer, Annarie Seecharan, expressed satisfaction in being part of the event and encouraged visiting Guyanese, particularly those visiting for Mashramani to explore and enjoy the event. She also pledged the GTA’s support with marketing and promoting the event.As someone who loves the arts and nature, Public Telecommunications Minister Cathy Hughes urged persons to pick up their tents and head off the Manari Ranch for a one of a kind experience.“I have had personal experience of enjoying the festival in being there for over a three-day period. And it is a moving experience because it’s not just music which is a powerful unifying role in any country or part of the world. But the fact is this is music with depth that allows you to experience a culture,” Hughes said.Earlier Friday, Indigenous People’s Affairs Minister Sydney Allicock presented a cheque for $5 million to the Director of the Rupununi Music and Arts Festival to help offset some of the costs.This year’s festival is the third edition and is packed with adventures throughout. Over the festival weekend, the days will feature exciting adventures, while the nights will be filled with fun camping activities, including cultural programmes all aimed at community building and encouraging social cohesion at the highest levels.Among the daytime activities are early morning yoga sessions; group meditation, keep fit, zumba, capoeira. Additionally, there will also be workshops on jewellery making, music, dance, art, wood carving, etc.Visitors will get the opportunity to go on guided tours through the Savannah, to nearby waterfalls and other sites. They can also enjoy outdoors adventures such as bird watching, fishing, biking and hikes.Among the line-up of local performers are Creole Rock, Feed The Flames, Jazz and Poetry Ona Stool, Trevaun Selman, Nachgana Dancers, Surama Cultural Group and more are to be added – an announcement will be made in the coming weeks. Additionally, there will also be performances by our neighbouring artistes from Brazil and Suriname.last_img read more

Family mourn Sala after footballer’s body identified

first_img0Shares0000Wellwishers had laid flowers for Sala at Nantes football stadium after his disappearance © AFP / SEBASTIEN SALOM GOMISBournemouth, United Kingdom, Feb 7 – Argentine footballer Emiliano Sala’s family grieved on Friday after British authorities formally identified his body as the one recovered from the wreckage of a plane that went down in the Channel more than two weeks ago.“We can now begin to mourn our son and our brother,” the Cardiff City striker’s family said in a statement. “We would like to thank you for all of your signs of affection and support in the most painful time of our life.“To see everyone doing everything possible to join us in the search has been a precious help to us.”Argentine footballing idols Diego Maradona and Gabriel Batistuta also paid tribute to 28-year-old Sala.His French former club, Nantes, said it was retiring Sala’s number nine jersey. All matches in France’s top two divisions this weekend will be preceded by a minute of applause for him.The light aircraft carrying Sala from Nantes to his new club disappeared near the British island of Guernsey on January 21. The only other person on board was the aircraft’s 59-year-old pilot David Ibbotson, who has not been found.Rescuers found Sala’s body in the wreckage using an underwater vehicle © AAIB/AFP/File / HOThe player’s body was first spotted by British rescuers using a remotely operated underwater vehicle on Sunday, close to where the plane vanished from radar.Investigators recovered the body on Wednesday and transported it to the southern English coast. It was taken to Bournemouth where it was formally identified.Investigators said they were abandoning plans to lift the plane wreckage out of the water due to bad weather.– ‘Rest in peace, warrior’ –Sala’s disappearance sparked an outpouring of grief and a flood of cash to support a private hunt for the plane when the official search was initially called off.“I am very sorry about this sad news. Many of us kept a glimmer of hope for you, Emiliano,” football icon Maradona said on Instagram, following the identification of the body.“What sadness, this is the worst news. Rest in peace warrior,” tweeted former Argentina striker Batistuta.The body was brought ashore after being recovered from the underwater wreckage of the plane which disappeared near Guernsey on January 21 © AFP / Glyn KIRKManchester City and current Argentina striker Sergio Aguero also expressed his condolences.The country’s President Mauricio Macri also mourned the “painful news”.“We are with you,” he said.The small Argentine town of Progreso, where the footballer lived for most of his childhood, was also in mourning.“Since we found out, it’s all anyone can talk about,” said local restaurant owner Oscar Heymo, a friend of Sala’s father Horacio. “He was very much loved and admired by all.”In Cardiff, the club’s manager Neil Warnock said Southampton and Cardiff City players would wear black armbands in their English Premier League match on Saturday and a minute’s silence would be observed before kick-off.“When something like this happens it brings all the football family together,” he said. “It’s a loss to everyone in football.”Sala’s sister Romina wrote on her Instagram account: “Your soul in my soul will shine forever”.– Crowdfunded search –The plane, a Piper PA-46 Malibu, vanished from radar around 20 kilometres (12 miles) north of Guernsey.The discovery of two seat cushions on the French coast last week revealed that the plane had broken apart.Nantes coach Vahid Halilhodzic reacted to the identification of Sala’s body, saying it was ‘awful’. © AFP / LOIC VENANCEInitial search operations were suspended in the days after it went missing but a crowdfunding effort supported by thousands of donations, including from football stars such as Argentina superstar Lionel Messi, helped launch a private search.Without the fundraising effort “I don’t think anybody would have searched for the plane,” shipwreck hunter David Mearns, who was hired by the family, told AFP.The plane wreckage was spotted by Mearns’ ship. Britain’s Air Accidents Investigation Branch then co-ordinated the recovery.The AAIB said that extensive video footage captured of the sunken wreckage is expected to “provide valuable evidence for our safety investigation”.It said it intended to publish an interim report on the accident later this month. Sala was the most expensive signing in Cardiff’s history.Nantes have consulted lawyers to explore legal options to ensure Cardiff pay the transfer fee for Sala, a source close to the French club said on Wednesday.According to the source, the first instalment of the 17-million-euro ($19.3 million) deal has yet to be paid, despite the transfer being finalised before the accident.Nantes coach Vahid Halilhodzic said Friday: “To talk about money in these moments is disgusting.”He described the news that Sala’s body had been formally identified as “awful” and “unfair”.“We had always maintained hope but we knew in the end that it was slim, almost an illusion,” said the 66-year-old, who wept as he spoke to reporters.burs-dt/rjm/pma0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Barcelona to pay Dortmund this fee if they sell Ousmane Dembele – reports

first_img targets 2 Barcelona will reportedly have to pay Borussia Dortmund a further £26million if they sell Ousmane Dembele to Liverpool or Arsenal before the end of his contract.Dembele moved to the Nou Camp for a £96m fee but there are a number of performance-related add-ons which could see that fee rise to £131m. It is understood two payments of £4.5m have been made after the forward reached 25 appearances for Barca and the club made it to this season’s Champions League.And according to German newspaper De Welt, whatever remains of the additional fees will be due if Dembele leaves the Spanish giants before his contract finishes in 2022.The Reds and the Gunners have both been linked with moves for the 21-year-old, who has started 24 games in 15 months at Barca.The Daily Mirror reported Barca’s top brass have run out of patience with Dembele and want to offload him as soon as possible, slapping a £100m price tag on him. Dembele has started just 24 games in 15 months at Barca REVEALED Kevin De Bruyne ‘loves Man City and wants to keep winning’, reveals father Cavani ‘agrees’ to join new club and will complete free transfer next summer “There is no problem with Dembele.“It is a normal situation for a young player who has a lot of talent and has reached a very big club like Barca, with great players and teammates. He has never had this before and this generates a process of adaptation that has to happen.“He is very young and has never had to make the effort to adapt to this way of playing and we recognise that it is costing him. He also recognises it.“What we will do is work so that this adaptation is possible.” targets 2 Tony Cascarino backs Everton to sign two strikers for Carlo Ancelotti The biggest market value losers in 2019, including Bale and ex-Liverpool star moving on Man United joined by three other clubs in race for Erling Haaland Top nine Premier League free transfers of the decade IN DEMAND LIVING THE DREAM But when asked about a Dembele departure, Barca were keen to play down these suggestions.General manager Pep Segura said: “If you have information from the English press, ask the English press. If you have information about Liverpool, ask Liverpool.“As of today we have nothing for Dembele and we have no desire to change the structure of the template.“It is true that I had a meeting with Dembele’s agents. But I had three meetings with three other representatives. My job is to meet with representatives, they are common things.

DD Fitness: Five ways to eat more vegetables

first_imgOne of the biggest struggles that people can have when it comes to nutrition are vegetables.It surprises me every time that I hear an adult saying that ‘they don’t eat vegetables’.one reason that I am constantly surprised is that there are a huge variety of vegetables and it is seemingly impossible to dislike each and every one of them. When you dig deeper into the issue, you will usually find that, as a child, they were made to eat some sort of, boiled to death vegetable, by their parents and this was the root cause of the issue.When you dig even deeper, you usually find that they do eat vegetables, in the form of stir fry’s, curries etc, just not as a side dish to a main meal.The main issue then is not the vegetables, it is the God-awful way that they were cooked, (bland and boiled to death) and the fact that they were forced upon you as a child.Today I am going to help you out. I am going to give you a few different ways to cook vegetables that will, not only add flavour to them, but will give you a new-found respect for our Cruciferous friends. I first came across these ideas from Dr Mike Roussell, in a seminar he did for Peak Performance in NYC.Dr Mike is a nutritionist who works with A list athletes and actors and is also serves on the Advisory Board for Men’s Health and SHAPE magazines as well as LIVESTRONG.com.Stuffed Italian Peppers – This recipe makes 4 large servings.Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place a medium sized sauce pan over medium heat; add 1 TBSP of extra virgin olive oil and 12 ounces of 95% lean minced beef.With a spatula, break up the beef and cook until the beef is browned.Drain off excess fat and place the beef in a bowl.Return the pan to medium heat, add 2 TBSP of extra virgin olive oil and 2 minced cloves of garlic.Once garlic is tan (not burned), add 4 small courgettes (cut into small pieces) and one diced onion.Sauté until the onions become clear.Add the beef back to the frying pan, a large jar of pasta sauce, and 2 large handfuls of baby spinach.Turn heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes. While the sauce is simmering, slice the tops off the peppers and remove the core, seeds, and white membrane from inside all of the peppers.Place peppers in a large baking dish with ¼ inch water at the bottom of the pan.Fill each pepper with meat/vegetable sauce.Bake in the oven for 30 minutes.Spoon 1 TBSP of cheese onto each pepper; bake for another 10 minutes.Serve and enjoy.Sautéed Spicy Cabbage –Place 1 TBSP toasted sesame seed oil in a frying pan with 2 cloves of minced garlic over medium heat.Let the oil warm and the garlic cook until the garlic begins to tan.Add 4 cups of shredded green cabbage and 1-2 tsp of Sriracha sauce (Thai garlic chili sauce).Stirring often, cook until cabbage softens and becomes translucent.Serve and enjoy. Roasted Brussels Sprouts –Preheat oven to 425 degrees.Cut 10-15 Brussels sprouts in half and toss in a bowl with a TBSP of balsamic vinegar. Arrange sprouts on a baking sheet with the cut side down.Season with salt, pepper, and bake for 20 minutes.Serve and enjoy.Rosemary Roasted Turnips –Roasted turnips are a great lower carbohydrate substitute for roasted potatoes either by themselves or in a dish such as pot roast.Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.Peel and cube 4-5 tennis ball sized turnips.Toss in extra virgin olive oil, salt, pepper, and fresh minced rosemary and thyme (dried herbs also work but the fresh provide a much better flavour).Roast in a baking dish for 25 minutes stirring halfway through cooking.Serve and enjoy.Ginger Soy Marinated Grilled CourgetteCut 2-3 medium-sized Courgettes into 2-3-inch strips (approximately the size of steak fries).Toss in a bowl or large Ziploc bag with soy sauce, powdered ginger, and black pepper (time permitting marinate in the refrigerator for several hours before cooking).Cook Courgette strips on the grill for 7-10 minutes until softened or place the Courgette strips on a baking dish and bake for 7-10 minutes.Serve and enjoy.There you have it.5 ways to make eating vegetables more enjoyable, by having a little imagination and adding some flavour and different cooking techniques.#leanin2018 Our next Lean in 2018 program starts in 2 weeks’ time on August 6th.If you would like to join our thriving fitness community, contact me through the links below.Be sure to keep up with all my articles and posts through my website and socials here:https://www.rushefitness.ie/https://www.facebook.com/rushefitness/https://www.instagram.com/rushefitness/* Emmet is the owner and operator of Rushe Fitness LTDDD Fitness: Five ways to eat more vegetables was last modified: July 22nd, 2018 by Emmet RusheShare 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
