Caribbean Equestrian Association Championship abandoned

first_imgAfter 18 years, the Caribbean Equestrian Association Championship has been abandoned. The shortage of horses was the main reason given for the cancellation, as horses were in short supply and were insufficient for the championship to go ahead.Since 1997, the championship gave young riders from the region the opportunity to compete against each other, and the scrapping of the tournament is seen as a major blow to the sport in the region and for the young aspiring riders.Jamaica’s coach, Susan ‘Betty’ Wates, in a television interview, explained that owners invest a lot of money and put a lot of commitment into their horses, and with the changes taking place economically, these owners are finding it increasingly difficult to lend their horses to a host of riders for this tournament each year.However, Barbados coach Di Clarke does not believe it is all bad for the young regional competitors.Clarke argued that competition in the region has evolved, and they will continue to have invitational tournaments in the various countries. However, because the Caribbean championship is a borrowed-horse competition, Clarke believes the young participants will perform better when they have their personal mounts at their disposal for these invitationals, adding that the invitationals will still help cultural exchanges to continue.Jamaica won the first of their seven Bernard Payen Memorial Shields in 1998. This was followed by victories in 1999, 2000, 2007, 2009, 2010, and 2014. Jamaica won their last championship with 12 faults, ahead of Trinidad and Tobago, who won the two previous tournaments, with 14.last_img read more

(AP Photo/Adam Hunger)NEW YORK — All it took was two rounds at the U.S. Open for the top two seeded women to leave the draw, with No. 2 Caroline Wozniacki following No. 1 Simona Halep on the way out.For Wozniacki, a two-time finalist at Flushing Meadows and the reigning Australian Open champion, her 6-4, 6-2 loss to 36th-ranked Lesia Tsurenko of Ukraine on Thursday night was a second consecutive second-round Grand Slam exit.ADVERTISEMENT Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award ‘High crimes and misdemeanors’: Trump impeachment trial begins Essentially, she just wanted to put the ball in play. That worked: Wozniacki wound up her own undoing in many ways, producing 35 unforced errors and only six winners.“She was playing smarter than me. She played the game that I was supposed to be playing. She got a lot of balls back. She played with the angles. She waited for the short ball. When the short ball came, she played aggressive. She went back and kept the ball in play when she had to,” Wozniacki said. “I should have made better adjustments. I just didn’t.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Both Wozniacki and Halep, who was upset on Day 1, were beaten at the new Louis Armstrong Stadium. Two-time major champion Garbine Muguruza lost there, too, in the second round, so there’s something of a reputation already for the rebuilt arena.“Guess Wimbledon used to have a ‘Graveyard Court,’” Wozniacki said, referring to the old Court No. 2 at the All England Club, which was infamous for upsets before it was torn down. “Maybe that is going to be the new ‘Graveyard Court.’ I think it’s a little too early to tell.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSJapeth Aguilar wins 1st PBA Finals MVP award for GinebraSPORTSTim Cone still willing to coach Gilas but admits decision won’t be ‘simple yes or no’For years, Wozniacki had to endure questions about why she was able to reach No. 1 in the rankings but wasn’t able to claim a major championship. She finally filled that gap on her resume this January in Melbourne, but if a burden was lifted, the Dane hasn’t played like it.Wozniacki is 5-3 in Grand Slam matches since, following a fourth-round showing at the French Open with second-round departures at Wimbledon and the U.S. Open, where she was the runner-up in 2009 and 2014. Will you be the first P16 Billion Powerball jackpot winner from the Philippines? She was asked whether having the Australian Open trophy makes these sorts of setbacks more acceptable.“I don’t think it’s easier,” she replied. “I don’t think it ever gets easier.”Tsurenko, meanwhile, has never been past the fourth round at any Grand Slam tournament.“I was really brave, I think, today,” she said.Things didn’t look good for her at the outset, when she shook her right forearm and had a trainer come out to massage it at changeovers. Tsurenko said she hurt it Monday and the pain returned when she served early in Thursday night’s match. From that moment on, Tsurenko decided she would just hit soft serves, instead of flat ones, to try to help her arm.ADVERTISEMENT Gretchen Barretto’s daughter Dominique graduates magna cum laude from California college Sharapova closes out Cirstea to advance at US Open LATEST STORIES Judy Ann’s 1st project for 2020 is giving her a ‘stomachache’last_img read more

Bomi Community College Prexy Credentials ‘Questionable’

first_imgThe committee investigating the president of the Bomi County Community College (BCCC), Samuel Momweh, has described his academic credentials as ‘questionable.’Dr. Momweh claimed he acquired a doctorate degree from a university in the United States prior to obtaining the job.The National Commission on Higher Education (NCHE) had accused Dr. Momweh of presenting fake credentials in a bid to get the job— which he now occupies— and therefore, set up an investigative committee.The investigative committee, chaired by Bomi County Education Officer, Seo Davis, reported that its probe found the BCCC president liable and recommended that the NCHE take appropriate action against Mr. Momweh in keeping with government’s education policy.The committee in its report presented January 22, further recommended that the commission prevails on BCCC’s Administration and Legislative Caucus to speedily implement Article 5, Section One of the Act of the college. The Article calls for the appointment of the president of the college with a terminal degree, based on the recommendation of the Board to the President of Liberia.Following the submission of the committee’s report, Samuel Momweh vowed to retain his post and never to resign, despite recommendations resulting from the investigation.He suspected that there were “detractors” behind the conspiracy to damage his reputation by questioning his legitimate academic credentials, according to a communication to the Ministry of Education (MOE), and quoted by Liberia News Agency (LINA).Dr. Momweh insisted that his credentials were “genuine and credible,” and as such, he would not give in to any negative campaign perpetrated against him.Recently, authorities at the NCHE have embarked on systematic campaigns to weed out of the Liberian education sector what they termed as “institutions and people with bogus academic credentials.”Based on that exercise, the commission has reportedly invited several other persons, some of them, ‘professors’ and heads of higher education institutions to authenticate their credentials.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

GECOM’s elections staff complain of delayed salaries

first_imgTemporary employees of the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM) who were hired in preparation for the polls have claimed that they are yet to be paid for the month of September, with no response on when these payments will be made.One of the encoders contacted this publication, stating that she began working since August for the entity. In September, they were given a stipend but it has been two weeks since the deadline passed for them to be paid. “I am a temporary encoder/verifier for the Guyana Elections Commission. I have been working there since the 25th August. During the month of September, they gave us a stipend of like $15,000. It varies with different persons. This was already the second week in October and we haven’t even received our salary as yet,” she explained.According to the woman (name withheld), she contacted the Accounts Department of the Commission on numerous occasions but was told that the money will be paid eventually. There are other persons along with her who have been facing the same issue.“Every time we call, they always telling us the next day, the other day. Some people don’t even have passage to reach to work and every time you call, they saying that ‘you will get your money’. It’s very frustrating because some of us have our children to look after and they just get us around and around”.<<>> understands that the temporary employees are under a different arrangement than that of the permanent workers. They were supposed to be paid on September 30.“They told us that we’re temporary staff and we have to work out up to the 30th September before our time sheet can go in. Everyone was okay with that but this is the second week in October and they haven’t even given us a response”.This publication contacted GECOM’s Public Relations Officer for a comment on the matter but calls went unanswered.Last year, Finance Minister Winston Jordan had announced that $5.4 billion has been allocated in the 2019 Budget for the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM) to hold the 2020 General and Regional Elections. During his budget presentation in the National Assembly that afternoon, Jordan explained that of this amount, nearly three billion will go towards preparations for the elections.GECOM has announced that the countrywide Claims and Objections period will be conducted at all Registration Offices countrywide and will conclude on November 18. However, persons have until November 11 to make a claim to be included on the list if they are a Guyanese citizen by birth, descent, naturalisation or registration, 18 years or older or will attain the age of eighteen by December 31, 2019.last_img read more

Letters to the editor

first_img– GEORGE SCHAFFER Rolling Hills Eliminate time change In Saturday’s Daily Breeze, there appeared an article with the headline “Fall time change is a killer, researchers find,” which seems to show that it is a bad thing to change from daylight-saving time to standard time. This is another example of plain old junk science. It was stated in the article that this research has not been published and has not been peer-reviewed. Which means that publishing the purported result is kind of like smoking grass – it makes someone feel good but it distorts reality. What I glean from the article is that if we didn’t “jump forward,” we would never have to “fall back” and then the researchers would not have a step change to investigate. There being no abrupt change in the clocks would eliminate an abrupt change in the light level, thus mitigating against the dangers to pedestrians after clocks are set back an hour. That is, the researchers could do something useful with their time (and somebody else’s money) rather than expending effort on a problem that should not exist. What this research actually reveals is that when people are walking around in the dark, they are more likely to be involved in accidents of all kinds (not just traffic accidents) than would be the case were they walking around in the daylight. I am 70 years old and thus have a lot of experience with this. After all these years, I don’t need a scientific study to reveal the obvious. End the nonsense – eliminate daylight-saving time! – ERNEST W. (ERNIE) KING Lennox No reformation needed In response to Rev. Paul Viggiano, (“Christians need to reform Halloween,” Comment page, Thursday), Reformation Day and Catholics’ stealing Christmas and Easter makes one wonder why there always seems to be the devil or conspiracy behind everything someone doesn’t agree with. Sorry that All Hallows’ Eve falls on Oct. 31 (even though it came before Reformation Day). Sorry the birth of Christ and the celebration of his resurrection comes during the time “pagans” celebrate also. The Catholic Church has chosen to celebrate these events on these dates despite the pagan celebrations and most Protestants have chosen to celebrate with Catholics. What we can agree on is that Catholics and Protestants should celebrate what the day means to them instead of excusing themselves because pagans celebrate something different. – JOSEPH SARACENO Gardena U.S. must reject torture Regarding Monday’s Comment page, being free and moral takes real courage. Abandoning our morals and compromising our freedom takes only cowardice. Not quite torture? Waterboarding is something of which every American can be proud? Columnist Deroy Murdock has lost his moorings and is running scared, like a coward. Time-bomb scenario? Mona Charen needs to stop letting “liberal Hollywood” define her reality. She says it’s so easy to take the moral high ground. No, it is not. It takes courage. It always has and it always will. What is apparently easy is for cowards like Charen to twist logic, values and judgment into believing that putting someone through pain and fear for their life until they submit to someone else’s will is not torture. It has never been easy, but America must continue to be the land of the free and the home of the brave. – DAVID GREENE San Pedro160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREStriving toward a more perfect me: Doug McIntyre Religion is the pursuit of an objective with zeal and devotion – which describes atheism, Christianity, Buddhism, Islam, Judaism and myriad other religions. When an atheist claims he is going to celebrate freedom from religion, he is being hypocritical, and any action he takes in public against a theist is unconstitutional, and he should be prosecuted for preventing the practice of religion by practicing his own religion. I challenge an atheist to define space, its boundaries, material and energy enclosed, and where material and energy originated without using the terms endless, boundless, infinite and always was. What are the dimensions of space and what is 1 foot past that boundary, not using the term emptiness or any equivalent term? Agnostics claim that the existence of God can neither be proved nor disproved, so they sit on the fence waiting for a resolution of the dilemma. The fact that space cannot be defined seems to indicate the existence of a super or supreme entity without beginning or end, which could be simplified as a god. Personally, I am comfortable with the supreme being concept because I cannot conceive the concept, or lack thereof, without one. Are atheists hypocritical? In your article (“Atheists to gather, celebrate a good year,” Oct. 12), members of the Freedom from Religion Foundation, the nation’s largest group of atheists, were going to meet. A little research shows that atheists are those who deny the existence of God. A theist believes in the existence of a god or gods. last_img read more

GAA NEWS: LETTERKENNY GAELS SEE OFF BUNCRANA IN MINOR CLASH

first_imgThe young footballers of Letterkenny Gaels kept up their 100% start to the Minor league with an impressive win over reigning county minor champions Buncrana at Pairc na nGael.Against a weakened Buncrana team, who decided to rest their county minor players ahead of the MacLarnan Cup final on St. Patricks Day, the Letterkenny lads had to come from behind before putting the opposition to the sword.The Gaels took the lead through points from Cormac Cannon and Sean McDonagh before a fine point and then a fortuitous ball into the box struck an unfortunate Letterkenny body before hitting the back of the net. The Inishowen men struck and raised the green flag once again to give them a 5 point lead with 17mins played. Despite the setback the Gaels rallied and responded with a goal from McDonagh and fine points from Cannon and mid fielder Tristan Ferris to leave the Cathedral Town charges with a one point deficit at the interval.Buncrana took the initiative in the opening exchanges of the second half as they slotted over what was to be their final score of the contest as the Letterkenny Gaels showed a ruthlessness for the remainder of the game. The solid defensive display of the unit and in particular Conal Doherty, Conor Coll and Conor Brown was the foundations on which the second half performance was built upon. Goals from Shaun Haugh and Aidan Hanley alongside Shaun Boyle, Cannon, McDonagh, Paddy Doherty and the hard working Oisin Canning resulted in a final score of Letterkenny Gaels 3.12 Buncrana 2.02.The Minor league takes a weeks respite for the St. Patricks Day celebrations before the Lifford minors make the journey to the Glebe in a fortnights time.  GAA NEWS: LETTERKENNY GAELS SEE OFF BUNCRANA IN MINOR CLASH was last modified: March 10th, 2014 by John2Share 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:buncranaLetterkenny GaelsMinorslast_img read more
