Brathwaite then allied with Chase in an up tempo 66-run, fourth wicket stand off 46 balls, which pushed Pride past the 200-run mark. Test batsman Chase clobbered a four and three sixes in a 27-ball cameo, but once he was bowled by Pervez in the 45th over, Pride lost their next six wickets for 42 runs. ICC Americas’ run chase was in peril as early as the fourth ball of the innings when Hakeem Dobson was caught at the wicket off Roach without scoring, and captain Nitish Kumar followed for one off the first ball of the second over when he was bowled by Holder, with three runs on the board. They were in further trouble at seven for three in the third over when Kamau Leverock, coming off a half-century in his last innings, departed for just one after cutting Roach to Warrican at third man. Amsterdam and Srimantha Wijeyeratne (1) put on 29 for the fourth wicket before three quick wickets tumbled for as many runs in the space of 11 balls. Tottering on 39 for six, Allen blasted a four and four sixes in a 32-run, seventh wicket partnership with Saad bin Zafar (4) but the latter’s dismissal, lbw to off-spinner Ashley Nurse in the 18th over, brought a swift end to the innings. FOURTH-WICKET STAND LUCAS STREET, Barbados, (CMC): Opener Kraigg Brathwaite’s second Regional Super50 hundred inspired unbeaten Barbados Pride to a commanding 171-run victory over ICC Americas in a one-sided contest at Windward Cricket Ground here yesterday. In another imperious display by the hosts, they stormed to 282 for nine off their allotted 50 overs after opting to bat first, and then bundled out ICC Americas for 111 in the 34th over, to seal their fifth straight win. Test batsman Brathwaite followed up his 101 against Guyana Jaguars just over a week ago with 108 off 134 deliveries, while left-hander Jonathan Carter sustained his good form with 57 and Roston Chase, 40. Leg-spinner Timil Patel (3-57) and fast bowler Cecil Pervez (3-58) claimed three wickets apiece. Captain and seamer Jason Holder then crippled the ICC Americas run chase with a brilliant spell of three for 25 from 10 overs while left-arm spinner Jomel Warrican (2-18) and fast bowler Kemar Roach (2-22) supported with two wickets apiece. All-rounder Timroy Allen stroked a typically whirlwind 36 off 25 balls while Alex Amsterdam chipped in with 30. But they were the only two to pass 20 as ICC Americas slumped to 39 for six in the 12th over and never really recovered. ICC Americas had earlier struck the first blow of the contest when Anthony Alleyne fell cheaply for two with three runs on the board in the second over. However, Brathwaite led the recovery in an innings that included seven fours and six, and which anchored three successive half-century stands He put on 79 for the second wicket with Shai Hope who made 27 and another 92 for the third wicket with Carter, whose knock was a busy one requiring just 56 balls and including three fours and a six.

A Ghanaian prelate has admonished the new leadership of the Liberia Chapter of the Full Gospel Businessmen Fellowship to evangelize and bring more people to Jesus Christ.Dr. George Prah, who is National President of the Full Gospel Businessmen Fellowship International-Ghana said, Liberia needs God’s intervention to sustain the transformation that is taking place in the country.“This tasked is in your hands, and you have to ensure that you bring millions of people to Christ,” Dr. Prah noted, on Saturday, May 3, when he inaugurated the Fellowship’s leadership.The ceremony held at a local hotel in Monrovia brought together several delegates from Ghana, Nigeria and Liberia.According to Dr. Prah, a nation can be transformed, if it leader recoginzes God as it head.“ It is not wisdom alone that can transform a nation, but a nation would be transformed, if its leader recognizes God as its head, ” the Ghanian prelate noted.Despite, the resources, Dr. Prah said, “It is time for Liberia to grow from strength to strength, from glory to glory in the word of Christ.”He said, Liberia needs to elect leader who has the hearts to change the country for the better.“If you fail to do so, it would be very much difficult for your country to achieve its development agenda.”Earlier, the Fellowship’s president, George Yanford said, the fellowship can only grow from strength to strength, if they all work collectively.“With your support, I want to assure you that we can win Liberia to Jesus Christ. We are ready to work, but we can do so, if everyone is willing to support each others’ efforts,” Yanford noted.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The LB Energy Female Midget Predators played four games at a tournament in Kelowna over the weekend.The girls got a sense of who they will play at this year’s provincials. The team started the tournament with a 6-3 loss to South Island. On Saturday they met a top-tier AA Sherwood Park team and lost by the score of 5-0. On Sunday in their final round robin game, they were defeated in a back and forth affair 7-4 by host Kelowna. In the consolation game, the girls doubled up North Island by the score of 4-2.“We were playing some fairly good competition,” said head coach Rob Larson. “We competed for parts of the game but never a full 60 minutes as you could tell the team was coming off the holiday break as we were a little lacklustre.”- Advertisement -Next up for the team will be a tournament in Williams Lake towards the end of February.
Three hours later, Real Madrid were putting the finishing touches to a 4-2 win away at Celta Vigo, a result expected to earn Santiago Solari an extension to his tenure as coach.Real have now posted four consecutive victories since Solari was put in temporary charge while the gap behind Barca has been reduced to four points.“He has done excellently,” Madrid club director Emilio Butragueno said afterwards. “We are very happy with how things have gone.”On his future, Solari said: “We’ll see. I don’t usually plan too far ahead but in principle, it´s my day off tomorrow.”Barca’s shock defeat came despite a return for Messi, whose two goals, one from the penalty spot and another deep into injury-time, proved little more than consolations.“We don’t leave with the feeling Betis were the better team,” coach Ernesto Valverde said. “I don’t want to take any credit away from our opponent but we could have countered them better.”It was the first time ever that Messi scored twice and Barcelona lost, but they stay top of the table, even if three clubs now lurk just one point behind. Atletico Madrid, whom they face at the Wanda Metropolitano after the international break, Sevilla and Alaves lead the chasing pack.Alaves beat Huesca 2-1 earlier on Sunday, while Sevilla won by the same scoreline at home to Espanyol, Wissam Ben Yedder prodding in an 89th-minute winner. “Top of the table is fine, I won’t deny it,” Valverde said. “It should also help us to realise it is never easy to win.”Betis’ reward for beating Barca is to climb to 12th. Quique Setien’s side may have pulled back on the sumptuous, attacking football that earned them a sixth-place finish last term but, in full flow, they remain one of Spain’s most difficult opponents to stop.“We have been a brave team in every way,” former Spain international Joaquin said. “Winning at the Camp Nou requires concentration and doing everything very well. We played a great game.”– Faster, sharper and hungrier –Betis seemed faster, sharper and hungrier while Barcelona’s midfield was repeatedly carved open on the break.It took five passes for the opener, the last a first-time drive from William Carvalho to free Junior Firpo down the left. He weaved inside Sergi Roberto and struck hard into the net.Barca had chances but Betis were soon pouring forward again, with Junior’s cross evading everyone except Giovani Lo Celso on the opposite flank. His cute cut-back picked out Joaquin, who stabbed in Betis’ second.Arturo Vidal replaced the jaded Arthur Melo at half-time and, in the 68th minute, Barca pulled one back, with Jordi Alba tugged down by Cristian Tello, and Messi converting the penalty for his eighth league goal of the season.But the recovery stalled three minutes later as Marc-Andre ter Stegen let Lo Celso’s shot slip through his fingers and drop into the far corner for 3-1.Barca were not done yet. Two substitutes combined for a second, Munir El Haddadi laying on Vidal but no sooner had the comeback begun again, it was halted.First, Ivan Rakitic was sent off, a second yellow card for a late challenge on Lo Celso, and then Sergio Canales tapped in Betis’ fourth from Junior’s cross. Messi added his second in injury-time but there was to be no more late drama.Benzema opened the scoring as Real cruised to victory at Celta Vigo © AFP / MIGUEL RIOPAMadrid’s win was more straightforward as Karim Benzema opened the scoring, a sublime touch and turn making space for a crisp finish into the corner.Benzema’s shot then cannoned in off Gustavo Cabral before Hugo Mallo’s sweet volley gave Celta hope. Sergio Ramos, however, chipped in a late penalty, Cabral was sent off for a second yellow card and Dani Ceballos wrapped up the points with a superb long-range strike. Brais Mendez scored a second for Celta in injury-time. The only blot for Solari was a spate of injuries which saw Casemiro, Sergio Reguilon and Nacho all forced off. Gareth Bale also took a knock to his left ankle in the first half but was able to continue.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Barcelona slumped to defeat despite Messi scoring twice on his return from injury © AFP / Josep LAGOBarcelona, Spain, Nov 11 – Barcelona lost at home in La Liga for the first time in more than two years as Real Betis pulled off a stunning 4-3 victory on Sunday, despite Lionel Messi scoring twice on his return from injury.Barca last endured a league defeat at the Camp Nou against Alaves in September 2016 but, following 42 games unbeaten, their run was ended by a brilliant, counter-attacking display from Betis.
A PROMISING young sports man swapped soccer for dope-dealing and ended up being caught by detectives, a court has heard.Sean McLaughlin, whose address was given as 41 Ard na Glaise, Kilmacrennan, got hooked on drugs at school, solicitor Kieran Dillon told Letterkenny District Court.The 23-year-old was caught running a cannabis dealing business from premises at 2 Ardglass, Long Lane, Letterkenny after a Garda raid on April 13 last year. Drugs unit officers found €300 worth of cannabis, cash, weighing scales and a ‘tick list’ indicating that he’d recently had €3,000 worth of sales.He was charged with possession of and the dealing of drugs.“He is relieved it has all come out because his life was being wasted in the mire of this activity,” said Mr Dillon.“He started using drugs at school where he was a great sportsman, a very good soccer player, and he lost it all through using cannabis. He entered a nocturnal world.“He used this stuff, passed it on to friends and whilst he had a tick list it wasn’t a very successful business,” said the solicitor.Mr Dillon said however that McLaughlin’s arrest was the catalyst to a change in his life.He was an excellent cook who had applied to join the tourism college.He was also back playing football, raising funds for charity and now leading a normal life again.“He has become himself again,” said Mr Dillon.Judge Paul Kelly agreed that a probation report was needed and adjourned sentence until September 18.PROMISING SPORTS MAN TURNED TO LIFE AS A DRUGS DEALER, COURT HEARS was last modified: July 18th, 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:drug dealerkilmacrennanletterkennyLong LaneSean McLaughlin
Daniel O’Donnell has said it has been strange returning home to Donegal and not to have his beloved mother waiting for him.Daniel and late mum Julia.The singer has returned to Donegal for a number of days since the death of mum Julia on May 18th last aged 94.Daniel has just returned to his native Kincasslagh after touring North America and Canada. He told his fans “It’s a big change being here at home and not popping in to see her every day but we are comforted by the fact that we had her for so long and I’m sure she is happy in her eternal home,” he said.Daniel and his family have received thousands of mass-cards and sympathy cards since his mother’s passing.He said he simply could not get the time to contact everyone who sent him and his family a personal message.“Once again I would like to thank so many of you who have written and sympathised with me and all my family since my mother passed away. “We could never begin to answer everyone personally so I hope you’ll accept this as an acknowledgment of your kind message of support.”Daniel also revealed how he and wife Majella have also visited Medjugorje for a week before coming back to Ireland.He said he and his wife had planned the trip last year while Majella was in the middle of her cancer treatment.“We had planned this trip last September as a friend of ours, who is a priest, was leading the group we travelled with.“At that time Majella was in the middle of her treatment and looking forward we felt that she would be well on the road to recovery and we thought the week in Medjugorje would give both of us time to reflect on the year that had passed. “And indeed it did just that. Both of us had been here separately before but this time together was exactly what we needed. Medjugorje really is a very special place.”HOME IS NOT THE SAME WITHOUT MUM – DANIEL was last modified: July 28th, 2014 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:daniel o’donnelldonegalmum Julia
A group of South African companies from four provinces will get an opportunity to showcase their products in China when they participate in the second China International Import Expo (CIIE) that will take place in Shanghai from 5-10 November 2019. The group’s participation is organised and funded by the Department of Trade and Industry (the dti) through its Export Marketing and Investment Assistance (EMIA) Scheme. The objective of the scheme is to develop export markets for South African products and services, and to recruit new foreign direct investment into the country.The CIIE is part of the Chinese government’s initiatives to support trade liberalisation and economic globalisation by actively opening the country’s huge market to the world. The CIIE is an open international cooperation platform provided by China for countries to showcase their products. It is also an international public platform provided by the Chinese government for all the countries in the world to discuss major issues of foreign trade, world economy and global economic governance.According to the Deputy Minister of Trade and Industry, Ms Nomalungelo Gina, China is expecting to import products and services valued at more than US$10 trillion and this will provide a massive opportunity for enterprises across the world to enter the huge Chinese market.“Our continuous participation in the CIIE will contribute significantly in helping us to increase the export of value-added products to China. Since 2009, China has been South Africa’s number one trading partner globally as well as in the Asian region. Total trade between South Africa and China grew from R271 billion in 2013 to R332 billion by the end of 2018. However, 86% of our exports basket to China is concentrated on primary products. There are concerted measures underway to promote value-added goods and services by broadening the export base and increasing South Africa’s market share in China,” says Gina.South Africa was among the twelve countries which were invited as guest countries of honour in the inaugural CIIE which was successfully held in Shanghai in November last year. More than 172 countries, districts and international organisations participated in the event. Products and services from more than 3 600 enterprises and companies were exhibited. SA’s participation in the first CIIE also formed part of the South Africa-China 20-Year Celebration of Diplomatic Relations. South Africa had the biggest representation of all countries from Africa and had the largest footprint at the event.Gina adds that South Africa’s participation will also contribute in strengthening both political and economic bilateral relations between South Africa and China. It is also expected to increase trade between the two countries in general, and South African exports of value-add products in particular.“As a fellow member of the Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa (BRICS) grouping, participating in exhibitions like these will boost intra-BRICS trade and investment,” says Gina.Enquiries:Sidwell Medupe-Departmental SpokespersonTel: (012) 394 1650Mobile: 079 492 1774E-mail: MSMedupe@thedti.gov.zaIssued by: The Department of Trade and IndustryFollow us on Twitter: @the_dti
At least symbolically, it was a refurbished Craftsman bungalow in Santa Cruz, California, that helped nudge the total of certified floor area meeting the Passivhaus standard beyond the 1 million square meter mark, the German-based Passivhaus Institut said.In updating the 1,400-square-foot house, originally built in 1922, the owners were looking to combine energy efficiency with the Arts and Crafts style. Complete specs on the house are posted in the Passivhaus database, and you can read a blog about the project here.The bungalow is one of more than 10,000 buildings certified to meet the Passivhaus standard. Although most of them are in central Europe, according to the Institut, they’re also popping up with increasing regularity in North and South America, Asia, and Australia.Certified buildings include public and private buildings and come in all sizes. The largest built to date is an office tower in Vienna with usable floor area of nearly 21,000 square meters (226,000 square feet). The smallest is a tiny house near Rennes, France, with a floor area of 11 square meters (118 square feet).
Commuters in the city will be able to get real time bus information in Google maps from Monday.“This is the first launch of real-time transit information for Google Maps in India from today,” a Google statement said here today.Google has teamed up with West Bengal Transport Corporation (WBTC) to add real-time information about bus arrival times for Kolkata on Google Maps, making it easier for people to plan their trips.This service is currently enabled for key WBTC transit routes and is scheduled to be expanded to the remaining routes in the future.“This is yet another attempt to bring smart public transport to Kolkata and to improve the performance of WBTC. We are committed to improve public transport,” state Transport Minister Subhendu Adhikari said.“By sharing the real-time transit information of our buses with Google Maps, we are striving to deliver an enhanced level of service for our commuters. We expect this to help increase the footfall in our buses and improve revenue realisation,” WBTC managing director N S Nigam said.The West Bengal government has already introduced ’Pathadisha’ app of state-run buses in association with World Bank and Korea’s Green Growth fund as development partners.The app allows viewing of real time movement of buses of a location in a map. However, the app is facing bandwidth issues.
