LEICESTER CITY VS EVERTON

first_imgLEICESTER (4-4-1-1)SCHMEICHEL,SIMPSON, MORGAN, WASILEWSKI, FUCHS,MAHREZ, KING, KANTE, ALBRIGHTON,OKAZAKI,VARDYEVERTON (4-2-3-1)NIASSE,CLEVERLEY, BARKLEY, LENNON,BARRY, McCARTHY,BAINES, PENNINGTON, STONES, BESIC,HOWARDThe party has started. On Monday, Spurs’ 2-2 draw at Chelsea meant that Leicester City are the new – and most unexpected – Barclays Premier League champions.It is the Foxes’ first top-flight title in their 132-year history and a remarkable achievement given that they began the season with odds of 5,000-1 to win the Premier League.They can also boast the Professional Footballers’ Association’s Player of the Year in Riyad Mahrez and the Football Writers’ Association Footballer of the Year in Jamie Vardy.They will receive the Premier League trophy after what is their final home game of the season and will be determined to extend their unbeaten run to 11 matches having lost just three all season.Everton, meanwhile, ended a seven-game run without a league win with a 2-1 victory over Bournemouth last weekend with defender Leighton Baines stealing the winner.Everton have won just 10 games and need to win two of their remaining three – they finish the season away to Sunderland and at home to Norwich – to avoid their fewest home successes since they won only nine (in 2003-04 and 1997-98).When these teams met in December, Leicester won 3-2, thanks to two penalties from Riyad Mahrez, to confirm their place at the top of the Premier League at Christmas.This fixture has a habit of throwing up draws. No fewer than six of the nine games at Leicester against Everton have finished all square including the last five. Last season Chris Wood stole a late equaliser for Leicester in a 2-2 draw.Leicester are without Danny Drinkwater after the England midfielder was sent-off in Sunday’s 1-1 draw at Old Trafford against Manchester United. And Robert Huth is also banned after receiving a three-game suspension for pulling the hair of Manchester United’s Marouane Fellaini. But Vardy, who has missed the last two through suspension, returns to the attack.Everton miss the banned Funes Mori so Matt Pennington should continue at the back. Brendan Galloway and Gerard Deulofeu are still missing while there are tests for Gareth Barry and Seamus Coleman.last_img read more

The Caribbean Court of Justice ruling

first_imgDear Editor,The Caribbean Court of Justice rulings on the two cases, one appealed by the APNU + AFC and another by the Opposition PPP/C, have brought to the open many troubling issues in relation to our politics and some of our institutions.Over the last four years many articles and commentaries have appeared warning of a creeping dictatorship and the need for everyone to stand up to halt the drift.The first and most obvious was the decision that the Opposition appealed after the APNU+AFC got a successful decision at our Court of Appeal which in 92:1 verdict ruled that the no-confidence motion needed 34 and not 33 of 65 votes. The CCJ rejected that ruling.It upheld the National Assembly vote, Guyana’s Chief Justice ruling and the appeal by the PPP/C which was that thirty-three votes were the required number of votes to pass the no-confidence motion.Almost all Guyanese, lawyers and non-lawyers alike, must have known this. Even those who brought the case it appears did this only to delay the calling of election and to give the regime more time in power.The other issue on the appointment of the Chairman of the Election’s Commission is also vital. The CCJ ruled that the opposition was right and Mr. Patterson was not properly appointed to that post. He is, therefore, unconstitutional. He should resign or be removed immediately.To me, a person not trained in law, that also seem so obvious.The process by which the chairperson of GECOM should be appointed was first proposed by President Jimmy Carter for the 1992 elections. It was a mechanism to get a consensus on this very important post.The reason for this is also clear. For a functioning democracy all the forces in the society must have confidence in that most important body. It must not only be fair but must also appear fair.In fact, it was constitutionalized at the insistence of the PNC while in Opposition during the 2001 massive Constitutional Reform process. They wanted it entrenched in the Constitution to ensure that they (PNC) had a voice in such an appointment.The Commission grew in stature from 1992 when Rudy Collins headed it and did a very professional job.In 1997, elections which in my view was the best conducted election in Guyana, the PNC won a massive victory. Having lost the PNC rioted and called for a forensic audit. The PPP/C agreed to the audit which was conducted by a team from CARICOM.That audit restored the confidence in the Commission.After the 2001 elections, the Chairman Joe Singh, before demitting office had an international audit done on those elections which further boosted the prestige of the Commission.The elections of 2015 were one of their great successes in their move to control the Commission and facilitate rigging.It is important to note that after the 2011 elections the APNU had demanded that the Chairman Surujbally and the then Chief Elections Officer Gocool Boodhoo, be removed. They had demonstrations and even went in front of the homes of those two officials of the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM) in vigils harassing their families and threatening them.Eventually, the PNC/APNU dropped the demand to remove Surujbally but kept insisting that Boodhoo should go. When the vote came at GECOM, Surujbally voted with the PNC recommended Commissioners to remove Gocool Boodhoo as CEO.Now in power the APNU is continuing its quest for control. The only motive it is quite clear is to manipulate and rig elections.The way the Chairman, Mr. James Patterson, was appointed to the post of CEO was the first demonstration of the drive to take control and turn that body into an instrument of the PNC/APNU. In the process lists of very prominent Guyanese, people of distinction were dubbed not fit and proper.The next stage was the getting rid of the man who served as Deputy Chief Executive Officer for a long while, Mr. Vishnu Persaud. This was so blatant that it was shocking. This man scored the highest points on GECOM own criteria, moreover, he has years of experience and was never even accused of any malpractice. He seems too professional, thus, he had to be removed the PNC/APNU are allergic to fairness and professionalism.Clearly, the Chairman and the three APNU+AFC recommended Commissioners have no interest in professionalism and free and fair elections. It appears that they have seen themselves as agents of the APNU determined to keep that Party in power even if they destroy democracy and Guyana in the process.The rulings of the CCJ are important first steps in stopping the descent into undemocratic rule.However, we must not believe that the PNC will halt their efforts to perpetuate themselves in power. They are already showing signs that they are ready to disregard the ruling of the CCJ. The President, the Prime Minister and the Minister of Finance have made pronouncements that have telegraphed their intentions. They seem ready to show contempt for the CCJ and the rule of law. They must not be allowed to get away with this!It is now even more important that every fair minded and everyone consumed by the desire to live in a free and democratic society must now stand up and be counted for Peace, Justice and Bread!RegardsDonald RamotarFormer Presidentlast_img read more

No decision yet on oil refinery – Harmon

first_imgThere have been several reports of plans to establish oil refineries at various locations across the country, but State Minister Joseph Harmon has declared that Government is yet to make a decision on the matter. “The question of establishing an oil refinery is still an ongoing discussion; we haven’t made a decision on it at the level of Government,” Government’s Chief spokesperson said at the post-Cabinet press briefing on Thursday.He added that the issue of setting up an oil refinery is not one to be taken lightly and decided upon easily.“These decisions require careful analysis and careful study; and as far as I’m aware, we have not made a decision in that regard — that we are going to establish an oil refinery in any part of Guyana,” he asserted.Minister Harmon explained that there are private citizens and companies that have been expressing interest in establishing oil refineries.“Every week you have these companies popping up, and so I wouldn’t doubt that there is something out there in the public domain; but what I can say to you is that there is no engagement with the Government in that regard insofar as the setting up of an oil refinery in any part of this country (is concerned),” he clarified.Oil refineryThe most recent reports of the establishment of an oil refinery here was made by local company GuyEnergy during the inaugural petroleum summit – GIPEX – that was held earlier this month.Chief Executive Officer of GuyEnergy, Dr Turhane Doerga, had revealed that his company is working on building a modular oil refinery in Linden, Region 10 (Upper Demerara-Upper Berbice).His British partner and Operations Director of the company, Steve Rowan, had stated that the facility would produce fuels for markets both in Guyana and in Brazil using crude oil from ExxonMobil. This facility is expected to have a capacity of 30,000 barrels per day.Construction is scheduled to start at the end of this year, and be completed in 2019 for operation, ahead of first oil the following year. It was explained that the refinery would be operational before the commencement of the 2020 oil production, and as such, crude would be outsourced in the meantime.The cost for building the modular refinery is pegged at just under US$100 million. A desktop feasibility study conducted by Director of Advisory Services at the United States-based firm Hartree, Pedro Haas, had found that it would cost some US$5 billion to build an oil refinery in Guyana, and at least half the invested amount would be lost upon commissioning, with a negative rate of return on investment between US$2 billion and US$3 billion.Haas had stated mid last year that it was not feasible to establish a refinery with a capacity of 200,000 barrels per day when Guyana’s daily demand is between 13,000 and 14,000 barrels per day.However, Doerga had posited that Haas only looked at establishing full-scale refineries and not at modular ones. He explained that the former facility is outdated and catered only for large-scale refining. The GuyEnergy CEO further pointed out that nobody uses large refineries anymore. As such, he could not understand why the government-paid expert did not considered smaller and more efficient modular types used globally in his study.Nevertheless, based on the findings in the feasibility study done by Haas, Natural Resources Minister Raphael Trotman had stated back in October that Government would not be going ahead with constructing an oil refinery. He said Government cannot afford such a large investment, but at the same time, he welcomed such investments by the private sector. In fact, the Natural Resources Minister had said that talks were buzzing about building a much smaller modular oil refinery, and Government is prepared to give favourable consideration that can meet good standards and guidelines.last_img read more

Huskies earn big win over Peace River

first_imgA big win for the Huskies on Saturday night. Facing their old foes, the North Peace Navigators, and clinging to second place in the NWJHL standings, coach Bob Kalb conceeded it was a must-win.Both teams came into the game charged, knowing the importance of the game.  It seemed like that energy might go to waste, when the referee took a puck in the face during the first play of the game, leading a lengthy delay.  But the Huskies remained focused, and played their best first period in quite some time. – Advertisement -Luke McInerney opened the scoring 7 minutes in, when he found his own rebound, and beat a helpless Bretton Stewart.  A couple of minutes later, the Huskies put the pressure on, and after cycling the puck for at least a minute, Jason Arnouse came off the bench, straight into the play, and fired home a Dan Pappin centring pass to make it 2-0.  Still more in the first, when Jon Spence snuck in from the point, and hit a one-timer on a pass from Steven Fast, to send the Huskies into the room up 3-0. Advertisement In the second, the pups continued their aggressive play, though the scoring sheet may not have been so kind. Cam McKinnon made it 4-0, on a Jon Spence rebound, bringing to an end Nav’s starter Bretton Stewart’s night. But then Peace River would fight back. A Lance Rapson point-shot hit the skate of Justin Vedress and trickled over the goal-line. Mitch Kohut made things interesting, when he fired a shot underneath Zach Blain’s arm, to make it 4-2. Advertisement Zach Blain earned the win in goal for FSJ, playing a solid game, including a couple of remarkable saves in the third. The team went 4/10 on the powerplay, while PR was 3/6 with the man advantage. Luke McInerney also impressed, earning player of the game honours, for his solid 2-goal performance. The win gives them a 6 point cushion on Peace River, as well as a three point gap on Dawson Creek (not counting the results of Dawson’s game in Slave Lake). The race for second place continues on Sunday afternoon, when the team hosts Beaverlodge on Sunday afternoon, at 2pm. Advertisement Asked what the team needs to do to finish in second place, Luke McInerney has a simple answer. “Win all our games,” he smiled. “Just work hard”. The Huskies added another, when Luke McInerney stuffed a puck underneath Tavis Clark. But before the period was out, Justin Vedress scored his second of the game, potting a Rapson rebound after Jesse Disher missed a check on Rapson, to make it 5-3 after 40 minutes. But in the third, while the parade to the penalty box continued, the Huskies put the lid on the Navs, killing 7 minutes of third period powerplay time. The only goal on the third came late, when Kyle Richardson took a hooking penalty, and then the Navs bench argued, leading to a two-man advantage for FSJ, converted by Cody Kalb. Special teams were the name of the game this night. 7 of the game’s 9 goals were scored on the powerplay, though the defining moment for Fort St. John came mid-way through the third, when they successfully killed a five-minute major penalty to Payden Wongstedt, who brought his stick up on Gerry Young, and earned 5 + a game.

Photo/COURTESYNAIROBI, Kenya, Jan 3- Posta Rangers tactician Sammy ‘Pamzo’ Omollo has acquired the services of former Tusker FC winger Danson Kago who re-joins the club on a three-year deal while AFC Leopards youngster Marcelus Ingosti has also been roped in ahead of the new season.The two are among six new players that Omollo has signed as he began his 2018 pre-season preparations. Also joining the team is defender Suleiman Ngotho from Thika United, Peter Ng’ang’a from Nakuru All Stars while Jeremiah Wanjala is also expected to join from Kakamega Homeboyz. Posta have also re-signed forward Cavin Odongo from Kariobangi Sharks after the youngster failed to flourish having moved to the then Premier League newbies at the beginning of 2017.“We have concentrated mostly on forward players because that was our major weakness last season. We defended very well but our quality in the final third was lacking. These are players who will add a lot of impetus to our forward play,” Pamzo told Capital Sport.“I have watched Ingotsi at AFC and I really like his energy. He is young and promising and will be a good addition. Kago comes in with a lot of experience and he is a player with quality as well,” further added the tactician.

Exclusive – West Ham star admits players are yet to meet new boss Slaven Bilic

first_imgWest Ham United midfielder Matt Jarvis has revealed he and his team-mates are yet to meet new boss Slaven Bilic, despite the fact their first game of the new season is next Thursday.The Croatian boss takes over from Sam Allardyce, who left the Hammers at the end of the last campaign, and will manage his first game in eight days time against Andorran outfit FC Lusitans.But Jarvis, who is in Ireland with the squad as they prepare for the start of their Europa League campaign, insists the players aren’t worried and are just getting on with their task as they attempt to hone their fitness after a few weeks off.“I haven’t met [Slaven Bilic] yet,” Jarvis told Drivetime. “He’s coming out [to Ireland] on Friday.“It’ll be good to meet him and see what his way of doing things is.“We’ve come back and gone straight into pre-season where you work at your fitness and when it all working towards the game he’ll be here and show us how he wants us to play.

NASA eyes new heights with concept contest

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week Ten teams, vying for $100,000 in prizes, were competing in two competitions – one, to test the strongest tether; the other, to test the best light-powered robot for climbing up a 200-foot tether. “This is our first time out,” said Marc Schwager, spokesman for the Spaceward Foundation, a nonprofit dedicated to space science and technology education that teamed up with NASA to host the challenge. “This is much more like Kitty Hawk than Kennedy.” This weekend’s competition was the first in a series of “Centennial Challenges” hosted by NASA to encourage aerospace engineers around the nation to help fill new space needs with new technologies. During Saturday’s first round of competition, only four out of seven teams competed in the climbing challenge, and only one – a team from the University of British Columbia – successfully sent a robot up the tether, Schwager said. All seven teams would have another opportunity to test their robots Sunday, with many adjustments likely to be made overnight. “Everyone’s got a lot of work to do,” Schwager said. And even if teams pull off a successful climb, their robots must travel at a minimum speed of one meter per second to be eligible for the $50,000 grand prize, he added. If not, the prize money rolls over to next year’s competition. Four teams were expected to compete in the strongest tether challenge, using a material called carbon nanotube that was first developed in Japan in 1990. “These are insanely strong materials. They’re strong enough so that a nanotube the size of a human hair could pick up a human,” Schwager said. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

The competition at the NASA Ames Research Center invited teams to take their best shot at creating the world’s first “space elevator” – originally conceived by Arthur C. Clarke in his 1978 novel, “The Fountains of Paradise.” The idea is to develop a tough, lightweight rope, or “tether,” that would stretch from Earth to a satellite more than 62,000 miles in space, then send a robotic “climber,” powered by light beams and capable of carrying humans and cargo, up the tether. It’s a goal NASA hopes to accomplish by 2020. This weekend, though, the goals were slightly more modest. last_img read more
