The team has not been at full strength because of tactical reasons,” he explained. Maxwell is expecting leadership on the pitch from captain Dale Reid as well as former national Under-17 striker Nicholas Nelson. Meanwhile, coach of Haile Selassie Michael ‘Jah Mikes’ Williams is oozing confidence ahead of the crucial contest. “Well, we are behind Hydel by three points, so the aim is definitely to win. We are playing at home and coming all out for maximum points,” Williams said. He pointed out that due to lack of funding, the team did not have a good pre-season. He added: “I think we can beat Hydel, but I expect a tactical game from Maxwell.

With the first round of games set to conclude today and the return games to start next week, teams are fighting for top positions in order to advance to the next stage. Hydel’s veteran coach, Geoffrey Maxwell, says that any top-of-the-table clash is of great significance. “We are on top in the group, but Haile Selassie must be considered a team that can hurt us,” Maxwell told The Gleaner yesterday. “It is early days in the competition, and we are going through how we intend to play,” Maxwell, who guided Hydel to the Manning Cup final in 2012, added.last_img read more

Croatia bars former player from World Cup over Ukraine video

first_imgLATEST STORIES Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew The Croatian federation said in a statement that Vukojevic, who was also a former player for Spartak Moscow, had been with the team as an observer but his World Cup credentials have now been withdrawn.“I don’t want to be a burden to our team ahead of the extremely important semifinal match of the World Cup, at the moment when the most needed thing for the national team is peace,” Vukojevic told Croatian state broadcaster HRT.Vukojevic said he intended the video as a personal greeting to Ukrainian friends, not as a political statement.“However, I do understand that my statements can be differently interpreted,” he said. “Because of this, I am sorry – and I do apologize to the Russian public, if they perceived my statements like this. I am very proud of Croatia’s achievement at the World Cup and I wish the boys all the best luck in the following games.”Croatia’s team refused to allow players Mario Mandzukic and Andrej Kramaric to answer questions about the controversy at Monday’s news conference.ADVERTISEMENT A team spokesman, speaking about the video, said Vida “regrets” it.Ukraine’s government accuses Russia of arming pro-Russian separatists who control part of the east of the country, and of backing up the separatist groups with military forces.Vukojevic was appointed last year as a scout for Dynamo after a lengthy playing career, which included being part of the Croatian squad for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Trump assembles a made-for-TV impeachment defense team View comments Nadine Lustre’s phone stolen in Brazil Putin’s, Xi’s ruler-for-life moves pose challenges to West Report: Disney dropping the ‘Fox’ from movie studio names Isner finally reaches 1st Wimbledon quarterfinal on 10th try Palace OKs total deployment ban on Kuwait OFWs The video shows Vida, who scored against Russia, shouting “glory to Ukraine” before Vukojevic adds “this win is for Dynamo and Ukraine … go Croatia.” Both Vida and Vukojevic previously played for Ukrainian club Dynamo Kiev, and Vukojevic is now a scout there.FIFA fined Vukojevic 15,000 Swiss francs ($15,150) later Monday for unsporting behavior.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkSPORTSTim Cone still willing to coach Gilas but admits decision won’t be ‘simple yes or no’The video angered many social media users in Russia, which has tense relations with Ukraine and annexed the Crimean peninsula from the country in 2014.

PICTURE SPECIAL: BBC’S KEVIN RETURNS TO HIS ROSSES ROOTS ON NIGHT OF CELEBRATION FOR NAOMH MHUIRE

first_imgBY THE LOWER ROSSES MAYOR: Naomh Muire GAA Club honours – The great Bruce Springsteen song “We take care of our own” was what it was like last night as the Chairman made two inspired choices in Club Guest and Hall of Fame recipient at the Dinner Dance and Awards Night.BBC journalist Kevin Sharkey was the Club Guest and it was great to see Kevin back in full flow remembering days of the past but likewise looking at where it is all heading hopefully.Kevin was deeply involved in the Club as secretary in the early years and although his playing career was… lets say mixed….with Kevin himself jokingly referring to being called ashore in a match in Gweedore…Kevin always gave his all off the field and often took one for the team when other Clubs tried to, at times, scupper our existence. Great seeing you as a deserved Guest of Honour a Caoimhín. Jimmy Doherty was this years Hall of Fame winner and boy what a deserving man. This page is too short to outline Jimmy’s contribution both on the sideline as Bainisteoir and off it in developing the facilities on view today.Jimmy gave the Club his all taking us to Division one, Intermediate Champions, Senior Championship football and acted as Chairman and Club Uachtarán. A humble man who has achieved much in his life and it was great to see Jimmy on the stage last night receiving this great Honour. Although he has returned to the quieter game of golf “far from the madding crowd”…Jimmy is still around us in the oft heated GAA scene.Congratulations Jimmy Doherty and most richly deserved.Two great men belonging to a Great Club…..”we take care of our own” PICTURES BRID SWEENEY  PICTURE SPECIAL: BBC’S KEVIN RETURNS TO HIS ROSSES ROOTS ON NIGHT OF CELEBRATION FOR NAOMH MHUIRE was last modified: February 3rd, 2013 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:PICTURE SPECIAL: BBC’S KEVIN RETURNS TO HIS ROSSES ROOTS ON NIGHT OF CELEBRATION FOR NAOMH MHUIRElast_img read more

Care faces cost hurdle

first_imgWEST COVINA – About 20 years ago, California put in place regulations for trauma centers.In 2005, there is still no statewide coordinated trauma care.Senate Majority Leader Gloria Romero, D-East Los Angeles, held a town hall meeting on the issue Thursday at the West Covina City Council Chambers.“We have a master plan for education … but we don’t have a master plan for life-threatening trauma,” Romero said. “California, at this point, is not prepared.”The biggest hurdle to overcome in creating a statewide coordinated trauma effort is cost, a panel of experts agreed.In 2001, $25 million earmarked for trauma care in California was added into the state budget for the first time, said Leonard Inch, executive director of the Sierra-Sacramento Valley Emergency Medical Services Agency. Since then, another $30 million was added.However, creating a statewide trauma system would cost $150 million annually, Inch said.“California has to move forward,” Inch said.Last year, hospitals saw 54,000 trauma patients, said Dr. Cesar Aristeiguieta, director of the California Emergency Medical Services Authority.“The statewide trauma plan is still under development,” Aristeiguieta said, adding it should be complete in April or May.There are now 64 trauma centers in the state, officials said. Since 1980, 16 trauma centers have closed, 11 of which were in Los Angeles County.Virgina Hastings, executive director of the Inland Counties Emergency Services Agency, said that without a coordinated effort, residents all over the state could receive substandard trauma care if they happen to be injured in another county because everyone is trying to protect their own funding.“We can stop talking, get this plan done and get a steady stream of funding and stop living on the edge,” Hastings said. “I don’t think the public should worry what side of the \ line they’re on.”With more than 2 million residents, the San Gabriel Valley only has one emergency room – at Huntington Hospital in Pasadena. However, those injured in the East Valley are driven or airlifted to Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center, 17 miles away.Los Angeles County Deputy Fire Chief Daryl Osby, who oversees east regional operations for the department, said 75 percent of trauma patients in the East Valley have been transported via ground ambulance.Starting in January, a trauma helicopter will be available 24 hours a day he said.The chopper alone can cost upwards of $10 million. christina.esparza@sgvn.com(626) 962-8811, Ext. 2472 AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREBlues bury Kings early with four first-period goals 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

More than three years ago, Dr. Laurence Reich pleaded no contest to one charge of sexually exploiting a patient after being accused by two patients at his Panorama City clinic. But the case to suspend the osteopathic physician’s license got hung up in the state board’s disciplinary process. Consequently, the gynecologist has been allowed to continue to practice medicine since his conviction in 2002. Even after an article in the Daily News in October highlighted this case, nothing happened. Now U.S. Sen. Barbara Boxer is calling for the suspension of Reich’s license. Hopefully, the attention from this powerful politician will get the process unstuck. But the real question is why it has to come to this. Patients should have some sort of reasonable assurance that the public is protected from problem doctors. last_img read more

Dad jailed and mum fined after girl misses 164 of 167 days of school

first_imgA father has been jailed and his partner fined after their teenage daughter missed an incredible 164 days from a 167 day school year.The teenager’s parents appeared at Letterkenny District Court charged with failing to ensure she attended school under the Education and Welfare Act. The case of the girl from the village of Raphoe in east Donegal had been adjourned from a previous occasion.Judge Paul Kelly had adjourned the case to see if there had been any improvement in the girl’s school attendance.He had warned the child’s parents that if their child missed any school days in between the court appearances without a medical cert that he would send the girl’s father to jail.The court heard that the girl had since missed three days from school.Solicitor for the girl, Mr Niall McWalters, said she had been off school because of an illness which stemmed from an asthmatic condition.However, no doctor’s medical certificates were handed into court.The solicitor said he accepted that in the girl’s second year in secondary school she had missed a total of 164 out of 167 days in school.He added that the situation had improved dramatically and that the girl had just sat her Junior Cert and had expressed a desire to go on and complete her Leaving Certificate.The family’s solicitor said the girl was described “bright and intelligent” by her teachers.Members of Tusla, the Child and Family Agency were in court for the hearing.Judge Paul Kelly said the girl’s parents, who sat at the back of the courtroom, had a responsibility to allow and encourage their daughter to get an education.“They have a responsibility to their child to make sure she attends school and receives a proper education. This does not mean taking her away for weekends or whatever,” he saidJudge Kelly sentenced the girl’s father to 14 days in prison and fined her mother €500.However, he deferred the sentence until October to see if the girl returned to school and how the case progressed.Dad jailed and mum fined after girl misses 164 of 167 days of school was last modified: July 6th, 2017 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:ClassesdonegaljailJUDGEpupilSCHOOLlast_img read more

See which Donegal celebrity has had a new species of FISH named after her

first_imgScientists have named a new species of fish discovered in the Orinoco River after Donegal singer Enya.The scientists explained that they used to listen to Enya’s 1998 hit Orinoco Flow while working with the fish, so when it came time to chose a name – their choice was clear.Doctoral candidate at Oregon State University Michael Burns says that Leporinus Enyae is a “beautiful little fish”, the details of which were published in a scientific journal ‘Neotropical Ichthyology’ earlier this week. Leporinus Enyae. Picture: Oregon State UniversityBurns says; “Whenever we were in the lab at Oregon State working on the fishes, Ben Frable would always play Orinoco Flow.”Co-author Marcus Chatfield added; “I heard the song so often in the lab it got stuck in my head.“Then I just started listening to it on purpose when I was taking measurements of the specimens. When the time came around for choosing names, it just felt right to name this new beautiful fish from the Orinoco after the artist who wrote that beautiful song.”Amateur harp player and co-author Brian Sidlauskas concluded that all the scientists on the team are “big fans of her music”.
