Police probe Cayman FA

first_imgGEORGE TOWN, Cayman Islands (CMC):The government here has suspended funding to the Cayman Islands Football Association (CIFA) after the organisation refused to accept the nomination of two new members to its executive committee.Renard Moxam and Sharon Roulstone were told their nomination papers were not in order and CIFA re-elected Bruce Blake as its vice-president, in its recent elections.Blake will continue as acting CIFA president since former president, Jeffrey Webb, also the former CONCACAF president and FIFA vice-president, is facing trial in the United States on a series of corruption related charges.”In the light of all that has happened in the recent past with FIFA, CONCACAF and, by extension, CIFA, one would have thought we could have gotten past this to allow some possible changes,” Sports Minister Osbourne Bodden said in a statement.”As a government, we have, therefore, decided that, regrettably, we cannot financially support CIFA any further under the current circumstances.”Meantime, the country’s Anti-Corruption Commission has confirmed that a police investigation has been launched into CIFA.The probe appears to be linked to corruption in the sports, with the local media reporting that CIFA’s auditors had reported “suspicious transactions” to the authority.”The Anti-Corruption Commission can confirm that a matter involving the Cayman Islands Football Association has been brought to the commission’s attention,” a spokesman for the body has been quoted as saying.”This matter is being reviewed and no further information will be released at this time.”last_img read more

Alvarez, Tacloban quickly put PVL debut loss behind

first_img‘Stop romanticizing Pinoy resilience’ Shola Alvarez said the Fighting Warays were still adjusting with each other, especially to imports Amporn Hyapha and Sasiwimol Sangpan, after their limited time together prior to the league’s opener on Sunday.“Coach Nes (Pamilar) told us that we should just set aside this first game because this is already over and we can’t do anything about the result,” said Alvarez in Filpino at Filoil Flying V Centre.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkSPORTSTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crownTacloban were subjected to a bitter opening day loss to PayMaya, 25-8, 33-31, 25-20, in a game that featured a shy bunch of Fighting Warays trying to not step on each others toes.The Fighting Warays, who started training as a complete team midway through April, then found their groove in the second set although they eventually fizzled out in the third. Alvarez, who played against Jovielyn Prado and Regine Arocha in the NCAA, said her familiarity with the other players helped her adjust quickly and it took them just the second set to sort things out.“During the first set it was obvious we were still adjusting with each other, especially with the imports,” said Alvarez, who had seven points. “Then we talked right before the second set and that we should be more vocal on the floor.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next View comments Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew MOST READ P16.5-M worth of aid provided for Taal Volcano eruption victims — NDRRMC Jo Koy draws ire for cutting through Cebu City traffic with ‘wang-wang’ Green group flags ‘overkill’ use of plastic banderitas in Manila Sto.

CSEC, CAPE results to be released today

first_imgThe Education Ministry has announced that results for both the Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC) and the Caribbean Advanced Proficiency Examination (CAPE) will be announced today and released to the candidates soon after.Minister of State, Joseph Harmon told media operatives on Thursday that the results would be announced by Education Minister Nicolette Henry at the National Centre for Educational Resource Development (NCERD).“The Honourable Minister of Education reported to the Cabinet that the results for both the Caribbean Secondary Council Examination and the Caribbean Advanced Proficiency Examination have been received,” Harmon stated.Minister Harmon noted that according to Henry, the results indicated that a majority of the schools have displayed improvements in all subject areas across the country.The candidates sat the examinations over the May-June period this year. Both the CSEC and CAPE examinations are spearheaded by the Caribbean Examinations Council (CXC) and are conducted during the same period.Superintendent of Examinations within the Education Ministry, Sauda Kadir noted that 12,266 candidates were registered to sit the CSEC examinations this year – a decline when compared to 12,684 candidates in 2017.She added that this year, 923 candidates wrote the CAPE exams – an increase when compared to 851 students the previous year. In total, some 13,189 students are awaiting their results from both examinations.In 2017, even with the Ministry expressing its dissatisfaction upon the announcement of the country’s performance at the CSEC examinations, Guyanese students collectively managed to cop a total of 11 of the regional awards which were offered by the Council. This once again positioned the country as a front runner at the Caribbean examinations.Queen’s College student Michael Bhopaul had single-handedly won four of the nine CSEC Awards. The preliminary results had revealed that Bhopaul secured a ground-breaking 25 passes at the secondary- level regional assessment, 24 Grade Ones along with 1 Grade Two.However, the confident 16-year-old reviewed his results and subsequently discovered that he in fact secured Grade Ones in all 25 subjects.Given his landmark achievement, the QC boy was named the Most Outstanding Performer at CSEC 2017.In addition, Bhopaul also won himself the Best Performer title in three other categories, scooping up the Business, Science and Technical Vocational awards.last_img read more

My Donegal – with PR guru Marie Shields!

first_imgGlen woman Marie Shields is well-known in media and marketing circles across Donegal. Formerly the marketing director with Letterkenny company Arklu (Lottie Dolls), she now runs her own PR company Moss Marketing. This is her Donegal! 1) What is your favourite place in Donegal and why?Dooey – located on the Atlantic Drive and Glen Village, Carrigart. Two of the most stunning places on earth. (2) If you could change one thing about Donegal what would it be?(3) Who is the one person that you look up to and why?Find it hard to choose one, my parents really because through everything they put us first and are kind, selfless, positive, good humoured and supportive always.(4) What’s your happiest Christmas memory in Donegal? The annual Christmas Tree Lighting in Glen, visiting Santa and watching the legend that was ‘Peter Up’ light the tree, playing and fighting with siblings and cousins afterwards about which toys we got!(5) What has been Donegal’s proudest moment in recent years?The ‘Coolest Place on Earth’ title from National Geographic seemed to really lift spirits and instill pride in us all!(6) If you found a magic wand that allowed you to grant one wish, whatwould it be?Running the risk of sounding like a Rose of Tralee here, but I wish I could eliminate homelessness facing so many families, it’s heartbreaking to think 3000 children in Ireland will be homeless this Christmas, everyone deserves shelter, it makes me sad to think of their Christmas mornings. (7) What is your favourite Donegal-made product?Love so many Donegal made and designed products! Bogman beanie hats, Modern Eire prints, mcNutts throws, Edel mcBride and Bernie Murphy pieces. Donegal designed; Lottie Dolls and the Bababou Hugg crib!(8) Who is Donegal’s greatest ambassador around the world and why?We, the people of Donegal, are all amazing ambassadors, this I learned from being away from home. Irish and especially Donegal people, promote our county with true pride – we love it, and it shows! (9) What has been the biggest compliment you’ve ever received?When I recently went self employed, the compliments that my family, friends, and colleagues both in Lottie Dolls and in Co Lab gave me, were so kind and gave me much needed confidence. Someone once said to me, ‘It’s always a joy to talk to you, because you care what I have to say.” – granted, I worked behind the bar at the time so this wasn’t always easy (lol!) but that stuck with me, listening is very powerful I enjoy talking to people but prefer listening!(10) Who is your favourite Donegal sportsperson of all time?Michael Murphy. Oh, and I found the story last year about rapper M.I.A wearing a Packie Bonner World Cup ‘94 jersey pretty mad, and cool!!(11) What is your favourite Donegal restaurant?Olde Glen restaurant, Cormac and the team are excellent at what they do, great food, locally sourced. I don’t get in enough. And, Logues Carrigart for pizza.(12) What is your favourite Donegal saying or expression?“You wouldn’t see a peat in your tay!”(13) What is the biggest challenge facing the people of Donegal today?Connectivity. In order to retain the workforce we have and grow it, as well as grow the tourism trade up this end of the county -infrastructure; connectivity in terms of rural broadband, and of course – the roads, needs to seriously improve. Donegal offers a fantastic quality of life, and is full of skilled, talented people as well as many who desperately want to move back home, a few things need to change in order for this to happen on a wider level.(14) What is your favourite food that you associate with Donegal?Hardly a local cuisine (!) but, the food in Burrito Loco, Port Road, is my favourite thing to eat in LK!(15) Is there anything that really annoys you about Donegal or its people?That we say ‘like’ so much, it is a punctuation mark for us, I know I say it way too much – wish I had an app that tracked it or zapped me when I say it out of context!(16) Do you have a favourite local band?The Icebreakers(17) If you had a million euro to improve something in Donegal what would it be?Challenges mentioned aside, there are people working on opening Wellness Hubs in the county which would offer mental health services that are more inviting and less stigmatised, and will also create employment, as well as phenomenal work being done via Pieta House, I would contribute to those initiatives that are all to often dismissed nationwide, not just in Donegal.(18) Where’s the most unusual place you’ve logged on to Donegal Daily?God only knows, I go to Donegal Daily and Donegal Woman a few times a day so could be anywhere (..that has decent broadband!)(19) Is there anything about Donegal that you are very proud of?(example: our culture/language)Our sense of humour and our scenery, I love being outdoors and taking photographs (with my Mum @geraldine.shields on Instagram!) and am so proud of the beautiful landscape around us.(20) What is the most rewarding thing about what you do?I get the chance to regularly listen to the passionate stories from mostly Donegal business people, on how and why they’ve set up their companies and what their dreams are, and I am then privileged to help them share their stories far and wide, and work on marketing and growing their business. Independent businesses need our custom and being in a position to work closely with these hardworking and creative people is very rewarding! I am lucky to get to do that for a living!My Donegal – with PR guru Marie Shields! was last modified: January 2nd, 2018 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:Marie ShieldsMY DONEGALlast_img read more

Settlement struck over Bradley Landfill odors

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORERose Parade grand marshal Rita Moreno talks New Year’s Day outfit and ‘West Side Story’ remake Longtime landfill watchdog Jerry Piro said he was happy regulators were cracking down, but he wanted to make sure the settlement would mean real environmental improvements. “I’d like to see something that’s physical, that I can say that all these trees were put in …. or all these medians have been improved. Something that we can really look on it and say this has made Sun Valley better.” The agreement commits Waste Management to a $25,000 donation for Communities in Schools, which runs anti-gang programs in Northeast San Fernando Valley schools and will expand its services in Sun Valley. A $50,000 donation will go to Para Los Nios, an educational service agency that aids low-income children and their families. The AQMD will get $20,000 in fines, and that could go up to $80,000 if Waste Management does not follow the planned fixes at its smelly green waste facility. Waste Management agreed to install taller fences and add odor neutralizing misters. The city also alleged that Bradley was responsible for discharges of oils, grease and volatile organic compounds into the sewer system in 2003 and 2004. For repeatedly failing to correct foul odors at Bradley Landfill, Waste Management agreed to pay $20,000 in fines, fix its odor problems and donate $75,000 to charities, according to a settlement announced Tuesday. The agreement ends more than a year of negotiations among the landfill company, South Coast Air Quality Management District and City Attorney Rocky Delgadillo. “Through this settlement Bradley has become a responsible neighbor, and the environmental resources of our community have been protected,” Delgadillo said in a statement. The settlement stems from odor, sewer and noise problems at the landfill from 2002-04. Waste Management District Manager Doug Corcoran disagreed with the validity of those charges, but said he wanted to settle to move forward. “We’re tying to put all of the past in the past and get focused on making things better in the future.” Kerry Cavanaugh, (818) 713-3746 kerry.cavanaugh@dailynews.com 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Boris U-turn on the Irish border as UK moves closer to NI-only backstop

first_imgThe UK is moving closer to the objectives of the original Northern Ireland-only backstop, it has emerged. According to RTE, the EU now believes London is prepared to accept a simple majority that would register consent for Northern Ireland to opt-out of the new arrangements enshrined in a revised Withdrawal Agreement.It’s unclear if this would be a majority vote via the Stormont Assembly or even through a referendum. The original backstop commits the UK and EU to protecting the all-Ireland economy, avoiding a hard border and related checks and controls, preserving North-South cooperation, and protecting the EU’s single market.It foresaw Northern Ireland remaining part of the EU’s customs union if another solution to avoiding a hard border could not be found.This morning EU member states gave the green light for negotiations between the UK and European Commission to intensify.The decision followed a briefing of EU27 ambassadors by Michel Barnier, the EU’s chief negotiator. “The EU and the UK have agreed to intensify discussions over the coming days,” the European Commission said.“The Commission will take stock with the European Parliament and the Member States again on Monday in view of preparing the General Affairs Council (Article 50) on Tuesday morning.”The General Affairs Council is a meeting of EU member state ministers in Luxembourg to draw up the agenda for the European Council summit on Thursday and Friday.Mr Barnier had earlier met the Brexit Secretary Steve Barclay, who brought fresh proposals in a bid to break the deadlock.Today’s developments followed yesterday’s meeting in Cheshire between the Taoiseach Leo Varadkar and Boris Johnson.
