Edwin Allen cultures winning ‘habit’

first_imgEdwin Allen claimed their third successive Girls Championship title and their fourth overall after tallying 329.5 points, finishing well clear of Hydel High (263) and St Jago High (241.5) at the Inter-Secondary Schools Sports Association (ISSA)/GraceKennedy Boys and Girls’ Athletic Championships at the National Stadium last week. Their head coach, Michael Clarke, revealed that the reason for this trend is because they have developed a habit of winning and work for nothing less each year. “It (winning) has become a part of us and they say winning will become a habit and it is pretty much a habit for us at this point in time. I think it would have been very devastating had we lost the championship because the girls have worked very hard, along with the coaching staff, management, everybody. We put our all into it and we’ve got the just rewards,” Dyke said. He also disclosed that their initiation to the Edwin Allen culture starts from the moment they walk through the gates of the Frankfield-based institution and even though they won by 66 points, Dyke thought it was a far from perfect championship for them. “As they get into the programme we teach them the sort of discipline we instil in the girls, so they pretty much learn from the seniors very quickly and knowing that we are a winning team, a champion team, as they enter their blood becomes blue and they are ready to start the role,” he continued. “We had disappointments throughout the championship, but in the end we are very happy. It doesn’t matter the margin (of victory), what is important is that we are still the champions, we are the 2016 champions. We did very well in the sprints and middle distances, but our throws were not what we anticipated. But we were able to pull it off, so it’s for us to look at where our strength and weaknesses lies and build on our weaknesses going forward,” he said. With the winning mentality and culture firmly laid at the Clarendon school, Dyke is confident they can go for a four-peat in 2017. “We take it in stride year by year. I am not going to put my head on the block, but we will be working hard to retain our title next year,” he added.last_img read more

Deal to boost Africa’s power

first_imgThree African countries are planning tobuild a new 400 megawatt power lineto boost trade in electricity and ensuresecurity of supply across the continent.(Image: Graeme Williams, For more freephotos visit the image library)MEDIA CONTACTS• Hon.William NgelejaThe United Republic of TanzaniaMinistry of Energy and Mineral+255 2211 [email protected] NdlovuZambia, Tanzania and Kenya are planning to build a new 400 megawatt power line to boost trade in electricity between them, and ensure security of supply across the continent.Officials from the three countries are currently securing funding for the project, which is due to start in 2011.Teddy Kasonso of the Zambian energy ministry confirmed that Zambia’s counterparts in Kenya and Tanzania have been authorised to sign the agreement and letters of introduction to formally present the project to potential lenders and donors.The power line will run from a sub-station in central Zambia, through Kasama in the northern part of the country, to Mbeya and then Arusha in Tanzania en route to Nairobi.The project, expected to cost R6.4-billion (US$860-million), will boost trade in electricity between the Southern African Power Pool and the East African Power Pool, which incorporates Ethiopia and Sudan.Kasonso said technical, economic, and financial studies have been completed and each of the countries would be equal partners in the project.The project management unit, incorporating staff drawn from all three countries, will be established in Lusaka later this year.Africa’s energy crisisOver the last few years many African countries – such as South Africa, Zambia, Uganda and Ghana – have experienced sweeping power blackouts, also known as “load shedding”.A combination of factors – including rapid economic and population growth, conflict, poor planning and drought – have been blamed for the shortages.In the past South Africa, with its large stocks of coal, enjoyed cheap and reliable electricity supply, and was able to export power to its neighbours, like Zimbabwe and Mozambique. But this has changed over the last three years.Government’s decision in 2001 to prevent the country’s electricity utility, Eskom, from building any new power stations meant that Eskom had to run its existing plant too hard, so the rate of breakdowns rose.This was compounded by a difficult relationship between the utility and the state, and leadership problems within Eskom. By the end of 2007 the country was experiencing a crippling shortage of power and by early 2008 widespread blackouts plunged the country into chaos.In January 2008 Eskom temporarily suspended its power supply to Mozambique and Zimbabwe to address the acute domestic shortages.Eskom and government have responded to the crisis by announcing a massive programme to expand power-generation capacity.These plans include spending a projected R343-billion (US$46-billion) over the next five years to fund new power stations, with the first one to start operating in 2013. Eskom has also started work on two new coal-fired power stations to meet rising demand.Zambia, by contrast, still has poor power-supply infrastructure. Only 17% of urban households have access to electricity, while in the rural areas it’s as little as 3%. Kasonso believes the new venture with Kenya and Tanzania will help provide more power for the people of Zambia.In Uganda and parts of West Africa recent droughts have depleted rivers, meaning less of a force of flowing water to generate hydroelectricity in those countries’ dams. This has led to further shortages and power outages.Ghana has resorted to using massive gas generators to produce emergency power following widespread load shedding, which has had a serious impact on the economy.The new project is expected to help avert the crisis by also encouraging investment in new hydropower schemes in Zambia. This will generate surplus power that could be exported to other African countries, like Ghana and Uganda.last_img read more

Indian-origin doctor on FBI’s list of most-wanted fugitives

first_imgFBI has launched a nationwide manhunt and alerted Interpol to locate one of its most-wanted fugitives, Indian-origin doctor Gautam Gupta whose ads promising weight loss are well-known, for allegedly defrauding US insurance companies of $ 25 million over the last decade. An FBI complaint alleges that Gupta received almost $ 25 million over the last decade when he submitted claims to Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Illinois and Illinois Medicaid for services that were not medically necessary or, in some cases, were never performed, according to the Chicago Tribune. Medicaid is a US health programme for citizens from low family incomes and resources, funded by the federal and state governments and is managed by the state. According to the complaint, FBI agents and Illinois State Police used interviews with current and former employees and patients of 57-year-old Gupta to build the case against him. The agencies also had undercover agents pose as patients. “We don’t know where he is,” Ross Rice, an FBI spokesman here, was quoted as saying by the paper. “All we know for sure is that he is not at his residence or any of his clinics.” Gupta, who is now on the FBI’s list of most-wanted fugitives, has been charged with one count each of mail fraud, health care fraud and conspiracy by the FBI. If convicted, he faces up to 35 years in prison. The paper said that Federal authorities believe Gupta has fled the country and may be in India, according to a filing in federal court in Springfield. Interpol has been alerted. Gupta has been entered by the FBI as a wanted fugitive in a computer database accessible to law enforcement officers across the country. The last known address for Gupta was in the 1600 block of North Mulford Road in Rockford. According to the complaint, patients were given ultrasound exams of their thyroid glands and electro- cardiograms even before they saw Gupta or other doctors at the clinics. Also women dressed in scrubs appeared to be nurses although there were no real nurses working at his clinics. This is not the first time Gupta has been in trouble. In 1999, Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation suspended his controlled substances licenses for a year because Gupta failed “to properly apprise female patients of the procedures required in heart and lung examinations” and was unaware “of inventory and record-keeping requirements regarding dispensing of controlled substances.” In 2008, Gupta was accused of insider trading by the US Securities and Exchange Commission. In the allegation, a brother of a Georgia-Pacific board member illegally shared information on a deal with Gupta, who then bought more than USD 1 million of Georgia-Pacific securities and gained $ 689,401 in profits. Gupta was ordered to pay back profits with interest and to pay an equal amount in penalties in the insider trading case.advertisementFor more news on India, click here.For more news on Business, click here.For more news on Movies, click here.For more news on Sports, click here.last_img read more

England will not bat out to draw Mumbai Test, says James Anderson

first_imgEngland will not look to play for a draw on the final day of the fourth Test against India but would rather try to score quickly to set the hosts a target and keep alive the series, fast bowler James Anderson said on Sunday.The touring side, down 2-0 in the five-match series, trail India by 49 runs with four second-innings wickets remaining at the close of the fourth day.On a turning Wankhede Stadium pitch, batting fourth will not be easy for the hosts, who made 631 in their first innings. (Also read: Mumbai Test: India eye victory after Kohli’s 235)England lost three wickets cheaply in their second innings before Joe Root and Jonny Bairstow launched a counter-attack with brisk fifties to bring down the deficit.”I enjoyed watching Root and Bairstow bat. I thought they did it with real positive intent and showed you can still score runs out there,” Anderson told reporters.”We hope that’s given the lads down the order a bit of confidence going into tomorrow – because we’re certainly not going to be trying to bat out for a draw. (Also read: Ravindra Jadeja becomes third fastest Indian left-arm spinner to 100 Test wickets)”If we’re going to keep this series alive, we’re going to have to try to get past them and try to put some pressure on in the fourth innings.”India had a lead of 51 at the start of the fourth day but an eighth-wicket stand between Virat Kohli, who scored 235, and Jayant Yadav extended that advantage to 231.advertisement”It is immensely frustrating,” Anderson said. “Coming to the ground this morning, needing to get three wickets with them 50 ahead, if we could get them we’re still well in the game.”Unfortunately we didn’t bowl as well as we could have first thing.” (Also read: Virat Kohli made batting a lot easier, says Jayant Yadav after maiden hundred)Anderson dismissed Kohli four times during India’s test series in England in 2014 but the batsman has already scored 640 runs in the ongoing series at an average of 128.England’s most prolific wicket-taker felt the India captain, who has scored three double hundreds in 2016, was not tested enough in home conditions.”I just think any technical deficiencies he’s got aren’t in play out here. The wickets just take that out of the equation,” said Anderson, who has 467 test wickets.”There’s not that pace in the wicket to get the nicks, like we did against him in England – with a bit more movement. When that’s not there, he’s very much suited to playing in these conditions.last_img read more
