first_imgFlashback: NHA players in trainingSkipper Tugbeh Calls for Employees’ Presence at SKDNHA Shelters’ skipper Tugbe C. Tugbe says the crucial nature of their soccer and kickball games against their opponents at the Ministry of Youth & Sports (MYS) demands all supporters be at the Samuel Kanyon Doe Sports Complex.The match is scheduled for Thursday, June 21 and the NHA will need a victory for both the female and male teams to remain in contention.MYS won their last two games. They defeated LEC 2-1 and GAC 1-0.“Our matches on Thursday, June 21 are very important because we need them,” Skipper Tugbeh told the Daily Observer on Friday. “We want our fans to come out there in their numbers to provide moral support to both the women and men’s teams.”In their last match last week, NHA soccer team put up a remarkable performance against LEC Current to force a draw. LEC took the lead and a rejuvenated NHA came back to take control of the game. They canceled LEC Current’s lead but wasted four possible chances.It was substitute player Richelieu Nance who took a brilliant penalty to cancel LEC’s lead and with LEC players visibly tired as they struggled in their individual plays, NHA had a field day with the ball but with poor finishing.Playing against MYS, NHA is reported to be doing everything possible as far as training is concerned to ensure that they collect the three points to better their chances for the next round.NHA soccer team’s probable line-up for June 21 will be goalkeeper Philemon Allie, Robert Cooper, Steven Gbollie, Kobee Weah, George Konneh, Richelieu Nance, Prince Mulbah, Ousman Diallo, Rodden Martin and Kpanyen Doe and skipper Tugbeh C. Tugbeh.Head Coach Patrick Toe and his assistant Roland Lloyd are plotting the team’s eventual victory against MYS with their opponents, under Coach Joe Dickson, formerly of the national team Lone Star, the game is expected to be one of the best encounters since the league began on June 8.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

MP highlights alleged ‘incompetence’ at Public Infrastructure Ministry

admin No Comments

first_imgThe parliamentary Opposition has claimed that the Public Infrastructure Ministry is faced with grave incompetence, underperformance and mismanagement, pointing to several issues that have been ongoing at that particular ministry for the past year as highlighted in Budget 2018.Opposition MP Juan EdghillShadow Public Infrastructure Minister and Opposition parliamentarian Juan Edghill has accused the Government of excessive use of the force account, particularly at the Public Infrastructure Ministry. The force account is the payment method used for extra work if a contractor and the engineer are unable to negotiate prices for revised work. This, he said, has not gone unnoticed.Edghill told the media at a People’s Progressive Party (PPP) press conference that while there was grave mismanagement, one of the most burning issues was the alleged political interference in the tendering process. “While they are putting nice big figures in the 2018 Budget, I’ll point out to you that on several fronts, the expenditure is zero. They haven’t spent a dime on some of the major projects they spoke about in 2017,” he stated.Edghill argued that the slow implementation of several capital projects highlighted that there was either no procurement plan or they were unable to execute their procurement plan.“It’s either jobs are being held back for specific contractors and it means at the end of the year, cheques are going to be cut for contractors and suppliers even though goods and services have not been delivered,” he further claimed.The Opposition MP said while Government has touted the Linden to Lethem Road as one of the major projects to be undertaken, $50 million was put in Budget 2017, but not a dime was spent. “So, it’s a pipe dream and an ice-cream promise that existed last year and is coming back again this year, and we are going to have more money being put into the budget for this.”Edghill also cited some other major infrastructural projects that monies were requested for in the previous budget, but nothing was done. These include the East Bank-East Coast Demerara road linkage, waterfront development, and the ferry vessels from India.The Opposition MP claims that the Ministry was not following the rules and as such, foreign-funded projects were lagging behind.last_img read more

Committee OKs budget for state high-speed-rail project

admin No Comments

first_imgSACRAMENTO – A Senate subcommittee on Tuesday approved a $45.2 million budget for California’s high-speed-rail project, $40 million more than Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger proposed but less than half the funding the rail board had requested. Mehdi Morshed, the board’s executive director, said the amount authorized by the subcommittee would not leave any money to buy rights-of-way, but would allow the board to do some of the engineering and environmental work planned for the fiscal year that starts July 1. “Obviously, it does a lot of good, but not as much as $103 million,” he said, referring to the money originally sought by the board. Morshed said he could not immediately determine how much engineering and environmental work the board would be able to do with the additional $40 million until he talked to the board’s consultants. The board requested an additional $103 million – $66 million for engineering and environmental work and $37 million to buy rights-of-way that could be threatened by other development. In a revised budget plan released last week, the Republican governor offered $5.2 million. Most of that – $3.5 million – came with strings attached. The board would get it from the Orange County Transportation Authority if the state also committed at least that much money for engineering and environmental work on the line between Anaheim and Los Angeles. An Assembly subcommittee is scheduled to consider the board’s budget today. Any differences between the two houses would be ironed out in a two-house committee.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! “It takes some time to figure out what it means and how we can divide up the money,” he said. The board is recommending that California build a $40 billion, 700-mile high-speed-rail system connecting California’s major cities with trains running at top speeds of more than 200 mph. A $9.9 billion bond measure on the November 2008 ballot would provide part of the funding for a first leg of that line. Under a plan proposed by the board’s staff, it would link Anaheim, Los Angeles, Bakersfield, Fresno and the San Francisco Bay Area. Later extensions would take the trains to San Diego and Sacramento. In January, Schwarzenegger proposed a 2007-08 budget for the board of about $1.2 million, enough to keep the agency’s small staff in place but not enough to do any work on the project. last_img read more

first_imgWHAT’S THE CRAIC SPLAT?“Revenge is a dish best served cold”Little did Pat Spillane realise when he “dissed” the Donegal style last that he would end up making a good sum of money for a GAA fundraising event in West Donegal.Naomh Mhuire GAA Club, Kincasslagh, yesterday raised over €2000 in a fun day with Pat Spillane the main fundraiser. Young and Old queued up to throw wet sponges at the Kerry great’s image with local celebrities putting their face to the crowd. John Gillespie, event organiser said “Although Spillane has since come on-side…the comments from last year were enough to ensure the wet sponges were going well. It is all a bit of craic and maybe we’ll get Pat Spillane himself here in late September.” TAKE SPLAT! ‘SPILLANE’ FUNDRAISER IS A DONEGAL SUCCESS! was last modified: August 21st, 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:TAKE SPLAT! ‘SPILLANE’ FUNDRAISER IS A DONEGAL SUCCESS!last_img read more

Darwin Claus Becomes Icon of Winter Solstice

admin No Comments

first_imgEvolution News has a picture of Darwin as Santa Claus.  They got the picture from a Winter Solstice card sent among atheists at Winter Solstice luncheons that are springing up around the country.  The caption on the card states, “evolve your beliefs.”The historic St. Nicholas of Patara, a Christian altruist, would be appalled at his nemesis being used to support neo-paganism.  Pay attention especially to the last paragraphs in the article.  Atheists cannot deny the case for cosmic design, and their empty hearts yearn for a meaning they have abandoned.    If atheists think they should evolve their beliefs, then their beliefs are self-refuting.  It becomes possible that their beliefs might evolve toward theism – thus denying the validity of atheism.  Beliefs cannot evolve into Christianity by any means.  That requires choice based on an intelligently-designed Master plan (Romans 10:5-13).  You might find this to be the happier choice (see 12/08/2003).(Visited 9 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Sai Praneeth registered a massive upset against world No.4 Jonatan Christie of Indonesia in the quarter-finals of Badminton World Championships in Basel, Switzerland on Friday.Praneeth, ranked 19 in the world, beat Christie 24-22, 21-14 in 51 minutes to reach his first World Championships semi-finals. Earlier, PV Sindhu overcame former world No.1 Tai Tzu Ying 12-21, 23-21, 21-19 to reach her third consecutive semi-final at the tournament.With this win, Praneeth has guaranteed at least a bronze medal for India in the men’s singles discipline. Prakash Padukone was the last Indian to have won a medal (bronze) in men’s singles in 1983.It was Indonesia’s Christie who earned the first point of the match but after getting a 4-2 lead early on, Christie gave away the initiative and this is where Praneeth started to take charge of the proceedings.Praneeth went into a 9-5 lead before Christie fought back to level 10-10 but the Indian went into the break with a slender 11-10 advantage.After the break, Praneeth looked the more aggressive player and went for his strokes while Christie remained on the defensive side, tossing up most of the shuttles.Despite, Praneeth taking more initiative, the two kept alternating the points before Praneeth earned one game point.Christie saved the game point and then brought up a game point of his own before Praneeth sealed the first game in his third opportunity.The second game began with Christie making a number of uncharacteristic errors. In the first half of the second game, Praneeth did not have to do much as Christie kept committing errors and gifted the points to Praneeth. And just like that, the Indian went into the break with a massive 11-3 advantage.After the break, Christie tried to push hard and put pressure on Praneeth by winning points but the Indian hung in there and at 18-14, Praneeth launched a barrage of smashes to bring up two match points.As Christie sent the shuttle wide, Praneeth let out a roar and lay flat on the court with his hands covering his face in celebration.This was the third time Praneeth and Christie met in their career and it was a first win against the Indonesian for the Indian.Praneeth had lost to Kento Momota in the quarter-finals at last year’s World Championships and had lost in the pre-quarterfinals the year before that.Praneeth will next take on defending champion and world No.1 Kento Momota of Japan. last_img read more
