Pollard sends Brathwaite, Thunder tumbling out

first_imgSYDNEY, Australia (CMC):Kieron Pollard produced a season-best knock to hand Carlos Brathwaite’s Sydney Thunder a solid 77-run defeat here yesterday and end the reigning champions’ dream of reaching the play-offs of the Big Bash League.The big-hitting Pollard slammed 47 off 22 deliveries to help the previously bottom-placed Adelaide Strikers rack up 178 for five off their 20 overs at the Sydney Showground Stadium.Needing to win to have any chance of reaching the next round, Sydney were then undermined by New Zealand leg-spinner Ish Sodhi, who snatched six for 11, as the hosts tumbled to an embarrassing 101 all out in the 16th over.bottom of standingsThe defeat left Thunder as one of four teams on six points but bottom of the standings courtesy of net run rate, following their preliminary-round campaign.Strikers, already eliminated, moved up to fifth on six points.Sent in, Strikers benefited from a top score of 65 off 40 balls from opener Ben Dunk, who put on 92 for the second wicket with captain Brad Hodge, whose 39 came from 32 balls.Pollard, arriving at the crease in the 13th over, smashed five sixes to give the visitors momentum down the stretch.Brathwaite, in his third game for Thunder, finished with one for 33 from his four overs of medium pace.In reply, the hosts were cruising at 60 for one in the eighth over but suffered a sudden collapse to lose their last eight wickets for 41 runs in the space of 45 deliveries.Captain Shane Watson struck 39 and opener Kurtis Patterson, 29, in a second-wicket partnership worth 58 but were the only two batsmen to reach double figures.Brathwaite, batting at number five, faced just two deliveries before he was bowled by Sodhi in the 12th over at 81 for four.Pollard, who shared the new-ball, picked up one for 36 from three overs of slow medium.last_img read more

So far fans aren’t exactly storming the box office to buy tickets for Mayweather Jr.’s fight next month with McGregor. A check online Saturday, July 29, 2017 revealed hundreds _ even thousands _ of seats still available from Ticketmaster at the T-Mobile arena for the Aug. 26 fight. There are so many open seats that fans with enough room left on their credit cards can buy six tickets together in 162 different spots throughout the arena. APLAS VEGAS, United States — There’s a reason tons of good seats remain for what was supposed to be the year’s hottest ticket.Actually, there are two reasons the hype bubble surrounding the fight between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Conor McGregor has been punctured, at least a bit.ADVERTISEMENT MOST READcenter_img Abueva slot hangs In their quest to extract every dollar possible, promoters wildly miscalculated their audience. This isn’t boxing, with an established wealthy fan base willing to pay thousands of dollars as they did for Mayweather’s 2015 fight with Manny Pacquiao.The 20-something UFC fans that are driving this promotion for the most part don’t have 10 grand to blow on a pair of seats. They’ll have to be content to sit in front of the television with a few friends, cheering on McGregor from the couch instead of inside the arena.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSEnd of his agony? SC rules in favor of Espinosa, orders promoter heirs to pay boxing legendSPORTSRedemption is sweet for Ginebra, Scottie ThompsonSPORTSMayweather beats Pacquiao, Canelo for ‘Fighter of the Decade’The other reason might be that the con job that is Mayweather and McGregor has been exposed. And, in a revealing twist, it was done by the fighters themselves.The drama has already played out, almost before it really got started. The act is tired, as anyone who saw the media tour or watched the first “All Access” episode on Showtime can attest. 787 earthquakes recorded in 24 hours due to restive Taal Volcano The bottom line is that there’s no there there. This is more reality show than fight, and the reality is that it’s such an awful mismatch that Nevada boxing regulators should be ashamed of themselves for even sanctioning it.But Mayweather is starved for cash, and doesn’t mind making a fool of himself to replenish his bank account. The boxer who likes to wear hats proclaiming himself “TBE’” (The Best Ever) is so desperate to sell this fight that he’s promoting it by suggesting he’s not that good anymore.“That’s what makes this fight so entertaining,” Mayweather said on the All Access show. “I’m not the Mayweather of the past.”He’s right, because the Mayweather of the past was at least mildly interesting. But the money act is as dated as the check from the Pacquiao fight that Mayweather seems to have trouble cashing.Gone are the days when he and 50 Cent used to toss around stacks of bills, then head out in the Bugatti to the strip clubs to throw dollar bills at dancers. The Big Boy mansion doesn’t seem so big anymore, and there are only so many times you can watch Mayweather sitting in his private jet.The same holds true for McGregor. His fur coats seem nice enough — though it’s hard to be sure the one he wore at the media tour stop in New York was really made of polar bear — and he’s thrown out a few genuinely funny lines.But it mostly feels forced, like the UFC star has been rehearsing too long. Yes, it’s easy to mock Mayweather for allegedly not being able to read, but 50 Cent delivered the same material years ago after he and Mayweather had a nasty split.Indeed, by the time the tour hit New York the trash talk was stale. Aside from the F-bombs thrown out like red meat to the eager crowd, there wasn’t anything that screamed “Buy me!” about the fight.And to think there are three more All Access episodes remaining. That’s about three too many for this one-trick pony.Still, the bottom line is that McGregor’s true believers really believe. They’re putting money on their man despite the fact he has no chance — other than something truly bizarre happening — inside the ring. They may not be able to afford seats in the arena but they will buy the pay-per-view in numbers that rival the 4.6 million sold for Mayweather-Pacquiao.

Three Drown in Nimba

first_imgThree young boys were on September 23 drowned when their canoe loaded with two motorcycles capsized while crossing the Yar Creek in the Wea Gbehyi Administrative District in Nimba County.According to an eyewitness, the boys were five in number, but two were rescued. The three boys were reportedly contracted by unidentified rubber buyers to haul their rubber across Yar Creek.“While crossing the creek, one of the boys sat on one of the motorcycles on board the canoe causing the canoe to capsize,” the eye-witness said.Two of the victims hailed from Gbeyi Nyenyee and Gbeyi Tengbein Towns, Gbeyi Chiefdom, while another hailed from Saclepea. Up to press time last night, no family member had come forward to claim or identify the victims.They were however buried over the weekend.This year’s rainy season has caused rivers and creeks across Nimba to overflow, heavily flooding and destroying many farms, according to residents.Yar Creek is one of the biggest in Nimba County. It runs from Mount Nimba in the north and enters the St. John River between Nimba and Bong County in theZoewenta Forest.Residents recall that a few years ago, several children drowned in the creek where they had gone to wash and swim.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Govt revokes Top Cop’s gun dealer licence

first_img– Persaud said he did “nothing wrong”– Ramjattan tells reporters to “haul yuh ass”The coalition Government has forced outgoing Police Commissioner Seelall Persaud to revoke the approval of a firearm dealer licence, which he granted himself last month, a move which the Top Cop says is now unprecedented.A section of the State media on Wednesday reported in a staged fashion exclusively on the story which was the same day the Police Force held a farewell parade for Persaud, who goes off on pre-retirement leave next Monday ahead of his April retirement.When asked about the matter following the farewell, the outgoing Top Cop told reporters that there was nothing wrong with him applying to himself and thenOutgoing Top Cop Seelall Persaudgranting approval for a licence to set up the dealership.In fact, he noted that this was done before.“In the 1980s, there was a Commissioner who granted himself dealership licence … There is precedence for it … something is wrong with this Commissioner that they tell the public that it was wrong,” the outgoing Top Cop asserted.Asked whether it was ethical for him to make this move just a few weeks before his retirement, the outgoing Commissioner pointed out that the business would have only become operationalised in May, after his retirement.“There was precedence, it’s a business and I can’t do business on the job, so it would have only been operational after I retire,” Persaud said.He went on to point out that almost all past Commissioners of Police applied for and grant gun licences to themselves.“If you look historically over the past 25 years, all the past Commissioners, maybe with the exception of one, granted themselves firearm licences. So it’s not anything new but you know we live in a society today where one set of circumstances is good for one person, but not good for the other,” he posited.Nonetheless, Persaud said he would not be challenging the decision to revoke his licence, as he has since become discouraged with the idea of opening his own firearms dealership.“It doesn’t matter; it was one line of business I was contemplating and that won’tPublic Security Minister Khemraj Ramjattanhappen any longer. But I have a lot of experience; I have a lot of credibility and I’m very confident in my next phase in life,” the outgoing Top Cop stated.It was reported in the State’s newspaper that Persaud on January 29, 2018 responded to an application previously made in his name, approving his business – Professional Outdoors Supplies – as a registered firearms dealer.Reports revealed that the outgoing Top Cop three days earlier granted approval for two gun licences for a 9mm Pistol and a 12, 16 or 20-Gauge Pump Action Shotgun.However, it was reported that the matter reached and engaged Cabinet’s attention and Persaud was since instructed by Public Security Minister Khemraj Ramjattan to revoke the dealership licence.The authority of granting firearm licences and licences for gun dealers falls under the remit of the Commissioner of Police, who, upon receiving an application, forwards it to the relevant Policing Division for an investigation into the background and character of the applicant. Based on the findings of the probe, the Commissioner makes a recommendation to the Minister, who then forwards it to the Firearms Licensing Approval Board for review. The Board will then make its own recommendations to the Minister, and based on that or his own deliberate judgement, the Minister grants the licence.When approached following the farewell parade on Wednesday afternoon for a comment on the matter, Ramjattan was hostile towards the media, telling reporters to have ‘time and place’.He then pointed out that he spoke with online news site Demerara Waves earlier and was promptly reminded that he “cursed” in that conversation, to which he responded, “Yes, there are times when I could use expletives.”Further pressed on the matter, Ramjattan, who is also performing duties as acting Prime Minister, declared: “I am not dodging no issue.” He then proceeded to walk away, heading to his vehicle and uttered over his shoulder, “haul yuh ass”.Nevertheless, this most recent scandal involving the outgoing Police Commissioner comes on the heels of the damning report from the Commission of Inquiry (CoI) into the Police Force’s handling of the probe into the alleged assassination plot against President David Granger.The CoI, headed by Retired Police Commissioner Paul Slowe, recommended that disciplinary actions be taken against Persaud and that he be made to resign or be removed for misbehaviour and investigated for perjury.The Commissioner subsequently proceeded on four months of vacation leave and a few days prior to his November return, he was sent on two months “special leave”. That move was translated by social commentators as Persaud getting the boot. However, he resumed duties in mid-January.last_img read more

Arsenal could be without Alexis Sanchez and Laurent Koscielny against Sunderland

first_img Alexis Sanchez celebrates scoring for Arsenal 1 Alexis Sanchez and Laurent Koscielny are doubts for Arsenal’s clash with Sunderland.The Gunners host the Black Cats on Tuesday night looking to keep alive their top four hopes.But they will have to potentially contend without Koscielny and Sanchez who are both struggling for fitness.“We have a little problem with Koscielny from Stoke. We’ll see how he has recovered today,” said Wenger on Monday.“Everybody else should be available. I left Gibbs behind on Saturday but he is available again. Oxlade-Chamberlain is still out.“Alexis Sanchez will have a test today. Yesterday it didn’t look too good, but with him you never know.“He’s so keen. Maybe it was just a kick. It could be a possibility that he recovers for tomorrow.“Koscielny has a little recurrence of his calf problem which kept him out against Southampton. Alexis has a kick on his thigh.”Meanwhile, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain remains sidelined and is in a race to be fit for the FA Cup final on May 27.The England international limped off against Southampton on Wednesday with a hamstring injury and missed Saturday’s win over Stoke.The 23-year-old has now been ruled out of the Gunners’ last two Premier League games of the season against Sunderland and Everton.“Oxlade-Chamberlain is still out. The earliest chance he has is to be available for the Cup final,” said Wenger. “I would say it’s 80:20 [percent that he does play against Chelsea].”last_img read more

REPORT SHOWS AUSTERITY ISN’T WORKING, SAYS TD DOHERTY

first_imgSinn Féin Finance spokesperson Pearse Doherty has said that the revised growth and unemployment forecasts contained in the Medium Term Fiscal Statement “demonstrates once again that the Government’s policy of austerity isn’t working”.The report, released by the Department of Finance has significantly revised down growth projections for 2013 and confirmed that unemployment will remain high in the coming years.Deputy Doherty said: “Austerity is strangling the domestic economy. It is blocking a return to growth and forcing more and more people into emigration and unemployment. “Today’s Medium Term Fiscal Fiscal Statement demonstrates once again that the government’s policy of austerity isn’t working.“Growth for 2013 has been revised downwards by 0.75% to 1.5%. While the Government has slightly revised upwards the projections for 2012 to 0.9% this is still lower than the 1.3% projected for 2012 outlined in last Decembers Fiscal Outlook.“The report also confirms the Government’s expectation that unemployment will remain high, at 13% in 2015. Astonishingly this means that the Government is planning for an unemployment level of 13%.“The reasons for all of this are very simple. Reducing government expenditure and cutting the disposable income of low and middle income people is keeping the domestic economy in recession. “Today we had a former Deputy Director of the IMF argue in the pages of the Irish Times that ‘perpetual austerity seems destined to fail.’ We also read reports in newspapers of a Grant Thornton study suggesting that the tax burden on ordinary families could rise by as much as €3,000 in December’s budget.“Today’s Fiscal Statement highlights once again the failure of austerity to revive the domestic economy. Yet despite all the evidence it seems that the Fine Gael and Labour look set to continue to heap the burden of the crisis on low and middle income families.“Unless the government abandon’s this failed policy of austerity and start to seriously invest in jobs and growth then the economy will not recover and the next Fiscal Statement will again revise downwards growth projections.” REPORT SHOWS AUSTERITY ISN’T WORKING, SAYS TD DOHERTY was last modified: November 15th, 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:REPORT SHOWS AUSTERITY ISN’T WORKINGSAYS TD DOHERTYlast_img read more
