first_img Today’s matches Coach Jerome Waite will is expected to start an understrength Arnett Gardens team today against Boys’ Town who need at least a point to avoid relegation from the Red Stripe Premier League. Waite’s decision could turn what has traditionally been the Trench Town derby into a friendly affair in today’s final preliminary round match of the season at the Anthony Spaulding Sports Complex. “The team is in the top six, so we will play some youngsters in the match against Boys’ Town,” Waite said last week. The top six are already known for the championship title play-offs later this month. Boys’ Town are battling for their Premier League life and must avoid defeat in order to be safe. The Boys’ Town team is in ninth position on 35 points, ahead of Waterhouse (34) and Maverley-Hughenden (32) as the teams in a battle to avoid joining already relegated Jamalco who are on 30 points. Meanwhile, Maverley-Hughenden are favoured to join Jamalco as relegated teams. Maverley have the least chance of the three teams in the fight as their destiny is out of their hands. They must win against Harbour View away and hope that other results end in their favour. Waterhouse must win against Reno to be safe. All games begin at 3:30 p.m. – Portmore United vs UWI FC at Prison Oval – Humble Lion vs Tivoli Gardens at Effortville Community Centre, Clarendon – Montego Bay United vs Jamalco at Wes Pow Park, St James – Arnett Gardens vs Boys’ Town at Anthony Spaulding Sports Complex – Reno vs Waterhouse at Frome Complex, Westmoreland – Harbour View vs Maverley-Hughenden at Harbour View Stadiumlast_img read more

first_img0Shares0000Arsenal’s players look frustrated after conceding the only goal in their Group H game away against Cologne. Photo/DAILY MAILBERLIN, Germany, Nov 23 – Arsenal have qualified for the knockout stage of the Europa League as Group H winners despite losing away to Cologne.A penalty by Sehrou Guirassy, after the French striker had been fouled by Mathieu Debuchy, earned Cologne only their second win in 17 Bundesliga and Europa League games this season. The closest the Gunners came to scoring was when Francis Coquelin hit the post when the game was goalless in the first half.Arsenal have 10 points from five games, four ahead of Cologne and Red Star Belgrade, who were held to a goalless draw by Bate Borisov.Of the five defeats Arsene Wenger’s side have endured this season, this was the least damaging after qualifying for the last-16 stage with two games to spare.Yet a much-changed Gunners line-up failed to build on the afterglow of victory over neighbours Tottenham on Saturday as they suffered another loss in Germany.They were hammered 5-1 by Bayern Munich in the Champions League in February 2017 and November 2015, as well as losing 2-0 to Borussia Dortmund in September 2014.Wenger changed the entire starting XI from the north London derby, forward Danny Welbeck returning from a groin injury after missing the past seven games.Arsenal’s side, which featured Olivier Giroud and Jack Wilshere, had only 16 Premier League starts between them this season and it was a lacklustre performance against the Bundesliga’s bottom club.Coquelin twice went close to scoring his first goal for four years, the French midfielder fizzing a shot narrowly wide from 20 yards before another effort bounced off the foot of the Cologne post.Wenger’s side increased the tempo in the closing stages – 17-year-old substitute Reiss Nelson dancing his way around home defenders before forcing a save, while Wilshere also went close from outside the area.Yet this a disappointing performance from the Gunners, who will look to end the group stage with a home win over Bate Borisov on 7 December.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

You’re all set! `Newlywed bandits’ plead not guilty LOS ANGELES – The “Newlywed Bandit” suspects believed to be responsible for five area bank robberies in a three-week span, pleaded not guilty Monday to charges of bank robbery and conspiracy. Rayceana Racheal Rocha, 22, and Paul Harlen Meyercamp Jr., 26, entered their pleas before U.S. Magistrate Judge Robert Block. At one point, like a couple in love, Rocha and Meyercamp whispered to each other, looked into each other’s eyes and smiled. The unmarried couple, christened “the Newlywed Bandits” by an FBI agent who watched them on surveillance tapes, were arrested last month when they allegedly robbed a pedestrian and carjacked a vehicle in Las Vegas before leading police on a pursuit. last_img

first_imgDonegal fans are being asked to put their shirts on their team.Each card comes with two jerseys – but only when full!Sponsorship cards are being drafted out across the county in a bid to raise funds for the senior team.The lines are just €3 each and there are 50 lines on each card. And the good news is that for just €3 you have a chance of winning a Donegal jersey.Needless to say we all hope that we’re still wearing them as we travel in numbers to Croke Park in September.Businesses and clubs are asked to put a card at their place of work and to nominate someone to look after it.And the good news is that whoever looks after the card and returns the sponsorship money will also get a FREE Donegal jersey for their trouble. It’s a win win situation all around – hopefully both like Donegal’s quarter and semi-final appearances at Croker. WHY DONEGAL FANS NEED TO PUT THEIR SHIRT ON TEAM was last modified: July 31st, 2013 by StephenShare 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) Tags:Donegal County Training FundDonegal GAAjerseyslast_img read more

first_imgAudley Harrison returned to the ring with an explosive fourth-round stoppage of Ali Adams in their heavyweight clash at the Brentwood Centre in Essex.The much-criticised former Olympic champion was typically tentative in the opening stages, with underdog Adams the aggressor.Adams landed with a heavy right in the third – but the fight was ended 48 seconds into the following round.A ferocious left rocked Adams and although the Chelsea-based Iraqi carried on after taking a count, he was badly dazed and a flurry of follow-up shots from Harrison prompted the referee to stop the contest.Ironically, Adams had boasted that he would end his opponent’s career by knocking him out in round four.It was Harrison’s first bout since he lost a one-sided world title fight against David Haye in November 2010.The Harlesden man’s win could put him in the frame for a shot at Liverpool prospect David Price’s British title.See also:Adams’ trainer fires warning to HarrisonAdams says he sees fear in HarrisonFollow West London Sport on Twitter Find us on Facebooklast_img read more

first_imgNature1 this week described evidence for high temperatures in the Arctic during the Cretaceous that it termed “astounding.”  Based on work by Jenkins et al. that Arctic waters were 15°C, as warm as modern coastal waters off France and Maryland.For a region blanketed in darkness for half of the year, the Arctic Ocean was astoundingly warm.  It may have been even warmer earlier in the Cretaceous: proxy evidence indicates that the climate had been slowly cooling for nearly 20 million years.  Although astounding, the new estimate of Arctic seawater temperature is not without precedent.  Fossil evidence of the tropical breadfruit tree Artocarpus dicksoni and of champsosaurs, extinct crocodile-like reptiles, has been found in sediments from the high Canadian Arctic dating to the middle Cretaceous (90-100 million years ago).Did volcanic eruptions increase the global concentrations of carbon dioxide?  Models show levels 3 to 6 times as high as today’s, but even those do not raise Arctic temperatures that high.  But raising levels higher also produces higher temperatures at mid-latitudes, “temperatures that exceed the estimated values using proxy methods and approach the tolerance level of organisms.”  Christopher Poulson (U of Michigan), author of the news item, uses these findings to point out inadequacies in climate models:Why do simulations of the Cretaceous climate predict polar temperatures that are too cold and Equator-to-pole temperature gradients that are too large?  The solution to the problem may lurk in the climate models themselves.  Attempts have been made to solve it by incorporating the effects of ocean heat transport, stratospheric clouds, ocean passageways, and vegetation.  The result, however, has been only incremental improvements.  Climate models still do an inadequate job of simulating the extreme warmth of a past greenhouse world – a troubling proposition for predictions of a future greenhouse world.1Christopher Poulson, “Paleoclimate: A balmy Arctic,” Nature 432, 814 – 815 (16 December 2004); doi:10.1038/432814a.Yet National Geographic in the September 2004 issue made the case that global warming was absolutely, certainly happening without a doubt, and only the ignorant or politically motivated would deny it.  Is this additional evidence that NG cannot be trusted in its science reporting? (see 10/24/2004 headline).  We all know that aliens cause global warming, anyway (see 12/27/2003 editorial).    This article points out that models, age estimates and the evolutionary stories that go with them are spotty, inexact and uncertain, to use Poulson’s descriptions of past Cretaceous climate evidence.  How, therefore, can anything they say about the past or future be swallowed so uncritically by science news reporters?  They weren’t there, and they don’t know.    Finding breadfruit tree fossils and other temperate and tropical plants (08/16/2004) and animals, including dinosaurs (03/29/2004) near both poles tells us something: the world was very different sometime in the past.  How could the poles get warm without the equator being too scalding for life?  It would seem there was a mechanism to moderate the global temperature like a mild greenhouse.  Maybe this will cause a rethink of theories of a pre-Flood global canopy; such models should get a hearing in the light of the failures of evolutionary modeling.  Let’s reconsider all those millions of years while we’re at it.(Visited 39 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

first_img18 July 2014Thirty-year-old Sibusiso Bhengu, an offender serving his sentence at Leeuwkop Correctional Centre in Johannesburg, says he is glad he had an opportunity to interact with the outside world on Mandela Day.Bhengu and other offenders from the prison joined Deputy Justice and Correctional Services Minister Thabang Makwetla, Basic Education Minister Angie Motshekga, Sun International CEO Graeme Stephens, Miss South Africa Rolene Strauss in planting a vegetable garden as part of their 67 minutes for Madiba on Friday.Bhengu, who is currently serving the last month of his three-year sentence after being convicted for fraud, pleaded with South Africans to follow in the footsteps of Nelson Mandela by learning to forgive former offenders.“Since being in the correctional centre I have changed and I have been corrected. I ask to be given a second chance in society. I understand that committing fraud was wrong.”He said he had acquired skills in agriculture while carrying out his sentence at the facility in northern Johannesburg, and would like to use them when he is released.Motshekga said Madiba had taught the country the important lessons of forgiveness and discipline. “It is important to forgive those who have wronged us. As South Africans we should not judge anyone, but rather give them a second chance.”Motshekga added that Madiba had kept a vegetable garden while in prison, using this as an opportunity to interact with other prisoners involved in the liberation struggle.The United Nations officially declared 18 July as Nelson Mandela International Day in November 2009, recognising Mandela’s “values and his dedication to the service of humanity” and acknowledging his contribution “to the struggle for democracy internationally and the promotion of a culture of peace throughout the world”.Celebrated across the globe in honour of the late statesman’s birthday on 18 July, the day gives everyone the opportunity to emulate Mandela’s role as public servant though volunteering and community service.Source: SAnews.gov.zalast_img read more
