BYC Needs Nil-tie to Qualify

first_imgLiberia’s lone representative in the continental football party of the CAF Champions Club League is expected to host Real de Banjul on Saturday, March 7, at the KG5 Mini-Stadium in Banjul, The Gambia.The anxiously compelling second-leg match between the two sides would kick-off at 4:30 local time.Statistically, the Liberian football giant, FC BYC, merely needs a nil-tie because of the away goal, or at most a win, to progress to the next level of the preliminary stage to face African champions Entente Sportive de Sétif of Algeria.Many Liberians believe that with the stubborn resistance of the Blues (FC BYC) the odds are in their favor to unleash the magical wand to give Liberians that projected smiles to consummate the gradual victory against the spread of infections of the deadly Ebola Virus Disease (EVD).Liberians are optimistic that the Robert Lartey’s men are well placed to advance to the next stage after Lamin Jabateh netted a vital away goal, and although Modou Lamin Saho’s and Real de Banjul showed enough for BYC to be wary tomorrow.Saturday’s game in Banjul instead of Monrovia is owing to the mandate from CAF delocalizing football from Ebola-hit countries.According to a dispatch from Banjul, the Blues are in high spirit to advance to the next stage.The report stated that Coach Larteh is thinking of attacking, as a way of defending to seal the team’s ambition.Reasonably, a 4-4-2 plot is being anticipated, and if well executed, the red-white-and-blue’s flag would be flown high.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Brothers get life terms in murder

first_imgA second jury convicted the Robinsons of murder and robbery in October 2002. Two were sentenced to life in prison without parole two months later. An appellate panel from the 2nd District Court of Appeal reversed the murder convictions in October 2004, saying a Pasadena Superior Court judge erred in excluding evidence that someone else could have been responsible for Hussain’s death. Avila said jurors were allowed to hear the omitted evidence in the third trial, which took less than two weeks to complete. “It took some time, but I think the victim’s family finally found justice,” Avila said Friday after the hearing.No family members testified at the sentencing. Hussain, 51, was shot twice about 12:25 a.m. Nov. 23, 1998, in the 7-Eleven store at 1802 Huntington Drive in Duarte. molly.okeon@sgvn.com LOS ANGELES – Two brothers were sentenced Friday to life in prison without the possibility of parole for the murder of a Duarte 7-Eleven store clerk during a 1998 robbery. On March 9, a jury found Cory Robinson, 26, and his 27-year-old brother, Brandale Robinson, guilty of first-degree murder in the Nov. 23, 1998, shooting death of Syed Hussain, a father of five. Jurors also convicted the brothers of second-degree robbery and determined that Cory Robinson fired the handgun that killed Hussain. Both men had an additional three years tacked onto their sentence for the robbery. Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Curtis B. Rappe also added another 25 years to life to Cory Robinson’s prison sentence for discharging the weapon. Rappe denied a motion for a new trial for the brothers. Attorneys for both have already filed papers to have the convictions appealed. This was the third trial for the Robinsons. The first trial ended in a hung jury, with nine of the 12 jurors voting guilty, said L.A. County Deputy District Attorney Victor Avila.

Lax Kw’alaams First Nation ask to relocate LNG terminal – cite potential harm to salmon

first_imgMalaysian energy giant Petronas is leading the $36 billion terminal, pipeline and northeast gas development project, and the Liberal government hopes this project will start a new natural gas export industry to Asia.As First Nations in BC find themselves with an increasing say over natural resource projects from mounting court decisions, the move to find a new site could remove a big obstacle for the project if it is successful. The Lax Kw’alaams First Nation may be searching for a new site for the proposed Pacific NorthWest LNG terminal, in hopes of finding one that would not affect the salmon-rearing habitat in the nearby Skeena River.As reported in The Vancouver Sun, the Lax Kw’alaams rejected a $1.15-billion benefits package offer from the company and the BC government over concerns of LNG distribution harming young salmon that rear on Flora Bank in northwestern BC.If another site was chosen, it would be certain to further delay a decision on the project by the company, originally expected to be reached at the end of last year.- Advertisement -If the site of the terminal changes, the provincial and federal government would likely do more reviews of the project.The First Nation said in a message to its members posted on its Facebook site on Monday that, while the federal government has been a disappointment, the provincial government appeared to be making a effort to understand the concerns of the Lax Kw’alaams.“A protocol has been established to do investigative drilling in aid of determining an alternative site, away from the Flora Bank, for the shipment of any LNG from Prince Rupert harbour,” the message reads. “That exploratory work is to commence soon.”Advertisementlast_img read more

REVEALED: JUST FOUR PAIRS OF CURLEWS LEFT IN DONEGAL

first_imgIT’S our most famous native bird – but it will be extinct in just a few years, experts have warned.For just four breeding pairs of curlew have been found in a survey of Donegal.Shocked investigators went to 60 sites in the hope of finding more of the birds. But they found just four pairs in Donegal – and four in Mayo.The study was carried out earlier this year by BirdWatch Ireland as part of a European Union-funded curlew conservation project in the Border counties.It suggests there are likely fewer than 200 breeding pairs left in the whole of Ireland, a shocking 96 per cent decline in just 20 years.“The marginal upland areas where curlews breed have been widely destroyed or fragmented by a range of land-use pressures,” curlew conservation project manager for BirdWatch Ireland, Anita Donaghy, said.

LAMBERT: SHAY WILL FACE BATTLE TO RETAIN NO1 SPOT AT VILLA

first_imgSHAY Given won’t be Aston Villa’s automatic No1 goalkeeper next season, new boss Paul Lambert has warned.The former Celtic legend has resigned Brad Guzan who was initially released at the end of last season after spending four years at Villa Park.However, it appears the 27-year-old will agree to a new deal with the Midlands club, to compete with Given for the goalkeeper spot, with Lambert hinting that it would ultimately hinge on who performed best in pre-season.“It’s near. I know [Guzan] has always had that stigma of being the No.2 behind some really good goalkeepers,” Lambert said. “But when you come back at the start of the season nobody knows what’s going to happen and it depends on whoever does well.”Lifford man Shay made 34 appearances last season – American Guzan did make several good appearances for the Midlands club when Shay was injured. LAMBERT: SHAY WILL FACE BATTLE TO RETAIN NO1 SPOT AT VILLA was last modified: July 10th, 2012 by BrendaShare 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:LAMBERT: SHAY WILL FACE BATTLE TO RETAIN NO1 SPOT AT VILLAlast_img read more
