Awards Season Is Here

first_imgAwards season is here in all its glory. In a Jamaican context, it climaxes at the RJR Sports Foundation Sportsman and Sportswoman of the Year Awards Ceremony in early January, but two big ones will arrive before the end of this month. The Caribbean Sports Journalists Association will dole out prizes for performances in 2016, while the Caribbean Hall of Fame Awards for Excellence will honour both the past and the present.The latter presents an intriguing face-off with a coaching award category that pits track and field high achievers Glen Mills and Stephen Francis against each other. It will be fascinating to see who wins. More important, it’s heart-warming to see the region honouring its own.Further afield, deliberations continue with regard to the IAAF Athlete of the Year Award. At first blush, South Africa’s Wayde van Niekerk seems to be a runaway winner. The 24-year-old ticks all the right boxes, with an undefeated season capped by a world record 400-metre run to gold at the Rio Olympics. The year 2016 was also when the smooth-striding South African became the first athlete to have times under 10 seconds in the 100m, under 20 seconds in the 200m and under 44 seconds in the 400m.Add his mighty impressive 31.03-second run over 300 metres at the inaugural Racers Grand Prix and you have a cocktail of excellence. Those who favour other candidates for the IAAF award will dig deeper. They see that, though van Niekerk stormed to a world record of 43.03 seconds from lane 8, he never had even one other time under 44.Grist for that mill indicates that his historic sub-10 – 9.98 seconds in Bloemfontein, South Africa – came at 1395 metres of altitude and with a near-perfect aiding wind of 1.5 metres per second. The track and field numbers people calculate that down to 10.08 seconds if you zero the wind and altitude.ONE BIG PERFORMANCEIf you take the position that van Niekerk had just one big performance in 2016, you might give the award to someone else, but it would have to be someone who won in Rio AND who was consistently good throughout the Olympic campaign.When Usain tripped, recovered and then accelerated and eased up in front of a fine field to win the Racers Grand Prix 100 in 9.88 seconds, it looked like the tall man might have been headed for some really fast times. The same feeling arose when he ran 19.78 seconds in his Olympic 200-metre semi-final. An injury enforced break, however, made real speed impossible and caused him to ‘lose’ at the National Championships and to cut his season short.Despite that, one sports radio show host asked recently if Bolt could not win on sentiment born of his completion of the Olympic triple treble. The voting for the award actually does have a potentially ‘sentimental’ component as the IAAF Council’s vote will only count for 50% of the result, while the IAAF Family’s votes and the public votes will each count for 25% of the final result.The IAAF family is composed of IAAF member federations, IAAF Committee members, IAAF meeting directors, IAAF athlete ambassadors, athletes’ representatives, top athletes, members of the international press, IAAF staff members and the IAAF’s official partners. Could Bolt sentiment hold sway within this group? We will soon see.Kenyan Conselius Kipruto dominated the 3000-metre steeplechase all season and won in Rio. However, he never crossed the 8-minute barrier. Omar McLeod won the 60-metre hurdles at the World Indoor Championships, broke the 13-second barrier in the 110-metre hurdles AND won gold in Rio. Two pre-Olympic losses, one due to a fall, damaged his card.Designed to facilitate comparison, the IAAF Performance Tables give van Nierkerk 1310 points for his world record. Bolt would need times of 9.71 and 19.44 seconds in the 100m and 200m, respectively, to find parity. His fastest 2016 100m was clocked at 9.81 seconds in Rio. The table equates that to a 43.57 400m metre time and 1273 points.British distance king Moham-med Farah tripped and fell but recovered to win gold in the Olympic 10,000m final and completed the double with a victory in the 5,000m. Marathon maestro Eliud Kipchoge and decathlete Ashton Eaton both won both of their competitions, including the Olympics. The tables aren’t too kind to any of these men. Farah gets 1237 for his fastest 10,000 of the year – a time of 26 minutes 53.71 seconds, with Eaton’s Olympic record score of 8893 gathering 1247 points and with Kipchoge scoring 1288 for his best marathon of 2 hours 03 minutes and 5 seconds.By comparison, van Nierkerk’s second-fastest 400 of the year – a 44.11 – nets a mere 1237 points from the IAAF tables.The history of the award is, nevertheless, instructive. World records have been on the portfolio of 21 of the 29 previous winners. As we all know, the only man with a world record in 2016 is Wayde van Niekerk.Only one question remains. With all these awards, except the Sportsman and Sportswoman of the Year Award, taking place in 2016, what happens to big performances if they occur in November and December? For example, West Indies batsman Chris Gayle scored 333 against Sri Lanka in the middle of November 2010. Would such a performance be too late to make the awards cut?n HUBERT LAWRENCE has made notes at track side since 1980.last_img read more

(AP Photo/Jeff Haynes)CHICAGO — The slumping Chicago Bulls may have seemed like the more desperate team, but Zach Randolph thought the Sacramento Kings needed a win just as badly.Randolph had 25 points and 13 rebounds, Bogdan Bogdanovic scored 19 points and the Kings beat the Bulls 107-106 on Friday night, extending Chicago’s losing streak to eight games.ADVERTISEMENT Coco’s house rules on ‘Probinsyano’ set Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next It’s too early to present Duterte’s ‘legacy’ – Lacson Jake says relationship with Shaina ‘goes beyond physical attraction’ Aldridge, Gay lead San Antonio past Grizzlies OSG plea to revoke ABS-CBN franchise ‘a duplicitous move’ – Lacson Jo Koy: My brain always wants to think funny Margot Robbie talks about filming ‘Bombshell’s’ disturbing sexual harassment scene “Everybody’s desperate right now — especially us,” Randolph said.It was the third road win this season for the Kings (7-15).FEATURED STORIESSPORTSRedemption is sweet for Ginebra, Scottie ThompsonSPORTSMayweather beats Pacquiao, Canelo for ‘Fighter of the Decade’SPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folk“It’s tough getting road wins,” Randolph said. “Any team it’s tough, trying to go into their place to get a win.“It was a good win, a team win.

Garrett Temple had 13 points and Willie Cauley-Stein added 10 points and four blocks for the Kings.Jerian Grant had 17 points, while rookie Lauri Markkanen, Robin Lopez and Paul Zipser scored 14 points apiece for Chicago, which dropped to an NBA-worst 3-18.It was the second straight night the Bulls lost by a point, although Friday’s game ended with a meaningless 3-pointer at the buzzer.

Old Road Junction Responsible for Flooding, Says Prophetess

first_imgIn wake of continued flooding affecting many communities in and around Monrovia, it has been prophesied that “Old Road Junction, precisely the Kailondo area, is responsible for the flooding.Prophetess Cathy Jaikwee of Truth Salvation Ministry told reporters Monday, July 7, in Monrovia that she received a divine prophecy from God Almighty revealing that the Creator is “angry with Liberia and the punishment is intensive rainfall.”According to Madam Jaikwee, God spoke to her Sunday night revealing that the outcome of His anger will be the destruction of the land through flooding if the nation does not take steps to prevent this.“The first place the Lord talked about was West Point Community,” Prophetess Jaikwee said.”In my dream, God took me to West Point and showed me the ocean swallowing the entire West Point, where women and children struggled for survival.”“Another place he took me was McDonald Street on Crown Hill, Monrovia.  The whole area was covered by water, with people struggling. The Lord warned that there are more we should expect from the flooding. He then revealed that Old Road Junction is responsible for the problems. Old Road is the reason why there is more flooding taking place across the city.”The Lord said to me, Prophetess Jaikwee continued,   “I am angry with this nation and am about to destroy it. I love and blessed this country but her leaders don’t have fear for their creator. Too many sinful things are going on in this country and the leaders are responsible. Man sleeping with man while women are doing the same. Public officials using human blood for sacrifices just for power’s sake.   These are things for which God is angry with this country and we need to repent.”Prophetess Jaikwee, who worships with the local ministry squatting in the G. W. Gibson School, disclosed that the remedy as instructed by the Creator is intensive prayer. “Until the entire country can pray to ask God to stop this destruction, we can’t do anything about this,” she noted.How could Old Road Junction be responsible for such disaster, the prophetess was asked by our reporter.  But she declined to elaborate, adding:  “I speak what God asks me to say to the nation. He did not say why Old Road is to be blamed for said disaster.”It remains unclear as to why Old Road Junction was mentioned. But, Prophetess Jaikwee said, that area has become the center of attraction since the Rainy Season and its many residents, including President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, and commuters have fallen prey to the flood.Of late, President Sirleaf’s residence and surrounding  areas have been deeply affected by floods, sparking a  protest in front of the President’s house by angry  residents who believed the President’s  compound was constructed in the waterway and must be removed.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Caricom takes RBM System training to Suriname

first_imgIn efforts to implement a harmonised Results-Based Management (RBM) System within Member States, the Caribbean Community (Caricom) will continue its series of sensitisation seminars this week in Suriname.Participants at an RBM Workshop held at the Caricom Secretariat in March 2017The Caricom RBM System seeks to promote a more results-focused approach to programme and project management. The two-day seminar in the Dutch-speaking nation commences today.The seminars, which began in Barbados on November 24 last year, will continue throughout the year in other Member States.These sensitisation seminars will target a wide cross-section of stakeholders, including parliamentarians, Permanent Secretaries, international development partners, regional institutions, Directors and Corporate Planners, the Private Sector, Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs) and the media.The 2014 approval of the Strategic Plan for the Caribbean Community 2015-2019 by Caricom Heads of Government, marked a cross-road for the Community.  The document clearly articulated the need for a more results-focused approach to programme and project management, which would respond to the much-lamented implementation deficit.In its efforts to institute this results-focused approach, the Caricom Secretariat, with funding from the Caribbean Development Bank (CDB), commenced the process of developing the Caricom RBM System.The Caricom RBM System will be instituted at the Secretariat from January 2018, and is expected to serve as a mechanism to engender a more results-oriented culture within its regional institutions and, importantly, at the Member State level.A Caricom RBM Leadership Group was established, comprising representatives from all regional institutions and Member States to serve as champions and coaches in their respective entities, by promoting the adoption and utilisation of RBM and Monitoring and Reporting (M&R).In addition to improving implementation and achievement of desired results, the RBM System is expected to improve transparency and accountability at all levels among the three implementation partners – Member States, regional institutions and the Caricom Secretariat. This will be facilitated by the Performance Measurement Framework, which has been developed for each Pillar of the Strategic Plan 2015-19.The seminar series will ensure that all stakeholders are duly sensitised about the Caricom RBM System.last_img read more

Van crashes near border

first_img The latest crash renewed criticism from migrant advocates that the Border Patrol jeopardizes lives by chasing the vehicles. “Deploying a tire-deflating device is not the solution because the smugglers regularly swerve around them, causing them to lose control,” said Claudia Smith of the California Rural Legal Assistance Foundation. Last year, a van loaded with eight illegal Mexican immigrants slammed head-on into a pickup truck near Jamul, about 20 miles east of San Diego. Five people were killed. In 2003, a Chevrolet Astro Van drove against oncoming traffic on Interstate 8 for about 17 miles before swerving back into the westbound lanes. The van, reaching speeds of about 100 mph, spun out of control and crashed, injuring 19 suspected illegal immigrants. In 2002, a van carrying 27 people collided with a Ford Explorer on the same roadway: Five people in the van, including the driver, were killed, along with a man in the sport utility vehicle. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

SAN DIEGO – More than 20 people were injured, eight critically, when a van being chased by U.S. Border Patrol agents crashed on the U.S. side of the border with Mexico on Friday, authorities said. The blue Chevrolet Sportvan packed with suspected illegal immigrants overturned on State Route 905 around 1:40 p.m. while trying to avoid a spike strip that Border Patrol agents placed in its path, authorities said. Twenty-eight were in the van when it crashed. The van was part of an organized smuggling effort that involved two other vans transporting suspected illegal immigrants, said Richard Kite, a Border Patrol spokesman. Together, the three vans were attempting to transport about 90 people. “You have three vans in one location with a significant number of illegal aliens. This was obviously a coordinated smuggling effort,” Kite said. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORESanta Anita opens winter meet Saturday with loaded card Eight people suffered life-threatening injuries, while 13 were treated for minor injuries, said Maurice Luque, a San Diego Fire-Rescue Department spokesman. Two helicopters and nine ambulances converged on the site to take the injured to at least four hospitals. Seven people were not injured. The chase began around 1:30 p.m. when Border Patrol agents received reports that large numbers of illegal immigrants were being loaded into three vans in the Otay Mesa industrial district of San Diego, Kite said. The loading site was near a San Diego warehouse where investigators last month discovered the exit to a 2,400-foot tunnel used to smuggle drugs, the longest passageway ever found under the U.S.-Mexico border. Border Patrol agents arrived there, stopped a black 14-passenger van and took about 30 suspected illegal immigrants into custody, authorities said. A white van struck a Border Patrol vehicle and a car on Route 905 and came to a halt as it tried to make a U-turn. Another 30 suspected illegal immigrants were taken into custody. The third van tumbled down an embankment, littering the roadway with debris. Authorities set up a triage center. At one point 10 people lay on stretchers and four men in handcuffs stood together. Smugglers take extreme risks to avoid being captured by the Border Patrol, sometimes racing down highways in the wrong directions with their headlights off at night. last_img read more

Angels Notes: Angels feel for Eddings

first_img “I don’t want to say anything about Vlad because I don’t want to wake him up,” Guillen said. “We hope he just keeps trying to hit the ball out of the ballpark.” No Colon: It is beginning to appear that Bartolo Colon (strained muscle right shoulder) would not be able to pitch in the World Series even if the Angels get there. Colon is scheduled to undergo more tests on the shoulder soon, and there are no plans for him to start throwing a baseball anytime soon. “If we get through this series, you’re talking another week,” Scioscia said. “If we fold him in at the back end of the rotation (for the World Series), that’s 10, 11 days before he’d pitch, and he’d have to pick up the ball before then.” Keep the monkey dormant: Most players and coaches don’t pay attention to the Angels’ Rally Monkey, but Guillen wasn’t afraid to give his thoughts on it. “Hopefully, we keep the little monkey in the cage,” Guillen said. “That little monkey drives people crazy. It’s not easy to come here and see the little monkey jump up and down. Hopefully, we can keep him in the cage and not wake him up.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! ANAHEIM – Talk about umpire Doug Eddings’ phantom “out” call still lingered around the batting cage Friday before Game 3 of the American League Championship Series, but it was more media driven as players and coaches from both teams tried to put it behind them. “If it was in the regular season, everyone would let it go,” Angels shortstop Orlando Cabrera said. “Because it was the playoffs, everyone makes a big deal. A lot of times there’s a man on first and two outs, and they don’t score. There’s been worse calls. I don’t think it was fair they had to go (into the interview room after Game 2). I was feeling sorry for them. They’re human beings trying to do their jobs.” Angels manager Mike Scioscia also said he felt sympathy for Eddings. “I don’t think anybody feels worse about it than Doug Eddings,” Scioscia said. center_img While much the dispute has centered on whether catcher Josh Paul caught or trapped the third strike to A.J. Pierzynski, Scioscia said that was not the issue that had the Angels upset. “The whole issue of the play was we read the signal from Doug as him recording an out, not recording a swing,” he said. Stop the pressing: Cabrera is one of the few Angels who has hit relatively well in the playoffs, tied for the team lead with nine postseason hits. He said he thinks Vladimir Guerrero (no extra-base hits, one RBI) might be pressing a little, but Chone Figgins (4 for 31) is even more important to the Angels offense. “Our key player is Figgins,” Cabrera said. “That’s our key player. If he starts hitting, we’re going to score some runs. I don’t know if he’s pressing, I know he’s trying. Maybe he’s trying too hard. He’s not swinging at pitches he was swinging at before.” While Figgins might be big in Cabrera’s mind, White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen remains wary of Guerrero. last_img read more

DD Gardening: The vegetable garden

first_imgIn this weekend’s gardening column, Conor Gallinagh discusses some key tasks that should be carried out in the vegetable garden.At this stage of the season, the vegetable and fruit garden should be in full swing with crops ripening quickly.Here are five tasks for your weekend in the garden Advertisement Harvesting: This should be carried out on a regular basis. This help prevents any problems with pest and diseases.It will also ensure that other crops on the plant get to ripen quicker. They are so many uses and techniques for storing various vegetables (this will be covered in the next column.Weed and Pest Monitoring: As you can imagine with the weather conditions been so variable recently this optimum conditions for weeds to grow and pest populations to expand.Ensuring the problem is dealt with before it gets out of hand is key. Weeds will add competition to your crops and can cause problems with ripening and growth. Pests can wipe out an entire crop.Watering: Again, with the weather been so variable of late there have been days of dry weather and very hot. So even though we have had a lot of rain of late be careful. Succession Planting: We still have time to grow and sow more plants before the season has finished. Depending on your growing environments will greatly depend on what you can grow. We can still get crops of salads such as lettuce, Pak choi and others.  Advertisement Feeding – Giving your vegetable plants a boost at this stage will help strengthen their immune system against diseases and also help quicken the ripening process. A liquid feed is most suitable at this stage. Either a comfrey drench or seaweed would work best.Happy Gardening!Conor GallinaghBAgrSc Horticulture, Landscape, Sportsturf ManagementMCIHortwww.conorgallinagh.comcghorticultureconsultant@gmail.comDD Gardening: The vegetable garden was last modified: August 10th, 2019 by Conor GallinaghShare 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

Eskom clinches $805m US loan for Kusile

first_img31 May 2011 South Africa state electricity company Eskom has secured a $805-million (about R5.57-billion) direct loan from the Export-Import Bank of the United States to finance construction of the Kusile coal-fired power plant near Emalahleni in Mpumalanga province. The application to finance the Kusile project underwent a review that focused on aspects related to its carbon dioxide production, and South Africa’s long-range goals to reduce its carbon dioxide production. The Kusile plant will consist of six 800 MW units, for a total capacity of 4 800 MW, and is designed with advanced technology and equipment, including highly efficient supercritical boilers. Kulile is the second of two plants – the other being Medupi in the Limpopo province – being constructed by Eskom in order to meet South Africa’s increasing demand for electric power. The approval brings Ex-Im Bank’s current fiscal year financing in sub-Saharan Africa to nearly $1.5-billion, nearly double the previous one year record of $812-million set during the fiscal year ending 30 September. SAinfo reporterWould you like to use this article in your publication or on your website? See: Using SAinfo material Advanced technology The financing will support Eskom’s purchase of engineering and construction management services from Black & Veatch International of Overland Park, Kansas. Reducing harmful emissions Eskom undertook a comprehensive environmental assessment for the project, and a number of environmental safeguards, including were included in the plant’s design. Notably, Kusile will be the first coal-fired power plant in South Africa to include scrubbers to control sulphur dioxide and filtering equipment to minimise particulate emissions. Hundreds of highly skilled American senior engineers and support personnel in Ann Arbor, Michigan; Raleigh, North Carolina; and Kansas City, Missouri will be employed by Black & Veatch each year during a five-year period. To help conserve water, the plant will use an air cooling system. The plant also is designed to be carbon capture and sequestration ready, which means it is configured in a way that will cater for the future installation of equipment to capture and transport carbon emissions to a permanent storage location. Eskom has announced its goal to significantly reduce its long-term dependence on coal by 2025. “Ex-Im Bank financing of US export sales to sub-Saharan Africa represents our commitment to the region,” said Ex-Im Bank chairman Fred Hochberg. “The world is rebuilding its critical infrastructure, and these types of opportunities are available to US companies in developing areas of the world. Rebuilding critical infrastructure “Ex-Im understands the opportunities that exist in Africa and is enlarging its footprint there,” South Africa’s ambassador to the United States, Ebrahim Rasool, said in a statement this week. “Moreover, entities like Eskom understand that they need to put forward proposals which are defensible both financially and environmentally, and that is where this transaction was born. “We thank Ex-Im for approving the Eskom financing, as well as the bank’s vision and commitment to South Africa.” South Africa is one of nine countries identified by Ex-Im Bank as offering the greatest export sales opportunities to US companies. In winning this contract with the Bank’s support, Black & Veatch overcame competition from several major European engineering companies. “We are ready to finance American exporters to win those sales and keep Americans working.”last_img read more
