Walton looks to Amazon Warriors future

first_imgEnterprising wicketkeeper-batsman Chadwick Walton says that while he would have preferred to stay and play for the Jamaica Tallawahs in the Caribbean Premier League Twenty20, he is prepared to give of his best for the Guyana Amazon Warriors. Walton, who has a been a member of the Tallawahs unit since the inauguration of the league four years ago, will represent the Amazon Warriors after being selected in the third round of the annual player draft in Barbados last Thursday. The draft contained 15 rounds, with Walton going for the third highest capped price tag of US$110,000. The number one draft pick for each of the six participating franchise teams, who had a budget of US$750,000, was capped at US$160,000, and the number two draftee, US$130,000. The Amazon Warriors selected Pakistan fast bowling all-rounder Sohail Tanvir as their number one pick and New Zealand batsman Martin Guptill as their number two. “It would have been good if I could have stayed with the Tallawahs, but it is franchise cricket and not a national team, and being a part of the draft, there is always the possibility you can always be picked up by another team,” Walton said. “It is, therefore, just for me to go over there and try to put my best foot forward and do the best that I can do.” The big-hitting Walton, who usually opens the batting with the flamboyant Chris Gayle, represents the third major player that the Tallawahs will have to do without this season. This, after it was disclosed in the off-season that Gayle would be transferred to the St Kitts and Nevis Patriots, and prolific all-rounder AndrÈ Russell would be absent due to a one-year World Anti-Doping Agency ban for a whereabouts rule violation. However, according to Walton, who has played two Tests, five one-day, and three Twenty20 internationals for the West Indies, while he knows his services might be missed, he is confident that the Tallawahs will continue to do well. The 31-year-old, who has been experiencing a rich vein of form, having scored three centuries over the past three weeks for the Jamaica Scorpions one-day and four-day teams, as well as a WICB President XI aggregation against touring England, has also expressed the hope that he will be able to deliver for the Amazon Warriors. The Amazon Warriors have made it to three of the four league finals to have been staged, however, they are yet to put claim to the crown. “They have been a relatively consistent team, and I hope to do with them the same thing I did here, which is to try and perform and get them over the line,” he said. Season five of the Hero-sponsored Caribbean Premier League is scheduled to bowl off in the summer. BEST FOOT FORWARDlast_img read more

Anthony Joshua can’t escape talk of Deontay Wilder

first_imgLacson: Calamity fund cut; where did P4 billion go? Wilder thinks Joshua would rather fight Povetkin anyway because he’s not ready to compete against the best. “Wilder has a big power punch, but he likes to fight. He likes to get into the brawl a little bit,” Povetkin said through a translator. “Joshua is more technical, but he also has a lot of power. It would be a different approach, but they’re both great fighters.” Povetkin would rather fight Joshua — probably because he’s going to — but thoughts of fighting Wilder cross his mind often. He’d be glad to get in that ring, too. (They’ve tried, but two failed drugs tests by Povetkin prevented a fight from actually happening.) If Povetkin defeats Joshua, the unification discussion might change. Only time will tell. Both parties say they want it to happen. It’s just not happening this year.Joshua has Povetkin at Wembley Stadium in London. Wilder says he will also have a fight and to be on the lookout for an announcement soon. Life is moving on — for now. “At the end of the day, me and Joshua don’t need each other,” Wilder said. “Not to survive and live. We’ve been doing that before we even met each other, and we’re going to do that after we’ve met each other. “But for this fight to happen — for fans to see one of the biggest fights in world history and to see one champion, one face, one name — we definitely need each other.” Povetkin is partially the reason why Joshua (21-0, 20 knockouts) isn’t fighting Wilder (40-0, 39 KOs) this year. In June, the World Boxing Association ordered Joshua to fight Povetkin (34-1, 24 KOs) or have his title stripped away. He signed, ending his chances of a Wilder-Joshua fight in 2018. Wilder said if Joshua wanted the fight to happen, it would be happening.“Most definitely he could have gotten an exemption for this fight,” Wilder said. “That was the least of the worries right there because everyone wants it. When everyone wants it, then there’s nothing that could stand in the way of a fight of this magnitude. No possible way. “Even when he’s announcing Povetkin, they’re talking about me. Everywhere we go, they’re talking about this fight.” ADVERTISEMENT But Joshua doesn’t care what everyone wants. He said he’s following protocol. “This career isn’t determined by what people want,” Joshua said. “It’s my career. I’ve always pulled for and done what was right for myself, which has ultimately led me to becoming a champion.” Right now, Joshua holds three of the four major belts: WBA, IBF and WBO. Wilder has the other: WBC. If the two were to fight, which they still both believe they will, the winner would be named the undisputed heavyweight boxing champion. The most recent boxer to claim that honor was Lennox Lewis in 2000. “It’s not about the big light,” Joshua said. “It’s not about taking from the industry. I don’t want to drive a Rolls-Royce tomorrow. I don’t want a one-hit fight wonder, then I’m a champion one week and few months later I’ve lost it because I’m living the life. I want to add to the industry, give back. I do it because I’m passionate about it.” His passion is just different from Wilder, who said he tried everything possible to make this unification fight happen.Wilder accepted a flat fee of $15 million and offered Joshua a guaranteed $50 million, plus 50 percent of the revenue if the fight took place in the U.S. Joshua wanted England. Wilder agreed. “We’ve done everything,” Wilder said. “I can’t express how much I mean by that when I say we’ve done everything day and night, day and night, day and night. And the only thing they’ve done is try to come up with plans of distracting the fans and trying to come up with plans of lies.” More negotiations took place. Each side says something different transpired— Wilder said Joshua sent blank contracts missing a date or place; Joshua said Wilder didn’t meet the deadline. There was also a disputed rematch clause. Regardless, months passed without any signed contract, leading the WBA to step in.

A Beautiful Vision for Tomorrow

first_imgIf there were ever a time when we needed hope for the nation of Liberia, it is now. At a time when corruption is so rampant at every level of society; when the economy is as tight as a contraction; when a general air of hopelessness just hangs over the country like a dark and menacing cloud; when survival is the name of the game. We need hope now. We need a vision we can believe in and work towards. The perfect time to deliver such hope was at the marking of Liberia’s 168th IndependenceDay. And the orator, Ambassador Charles Minor, delivered.While he dealt at great depth with the entrenched problems facing the nation, he delivered a message of hope that every Liberian can hold on to at this hour in our beloved Liberia. Minor’s message of hope cut across societal class lines – from the Executive branch to the yanna boy – and covered every facet of the nation – the governance factor, the economic factor, the human resource factor and even the personal development factor. He envisioned a leadership that is people-focused and not self-centered or graft driven. The former Liberian ambassador to the United States envisioned a Liberia that is self-sustaining. A Liberia that grows its own food in sufficient amounts to consume and export; a Liberia that produces value-added products for its local and export markets. A Liberia whose mindset has changed gear from the idea that the best job is in the office doing practically nothing, to the realization that the best job is one that makes a tangible, positive impact on the development of the nation. Minor envisioned an educated Liberia that dominates the job market in its own country; a highly developed Liberia as a direct result of a highly educated populace.What is so powerful about Minor’s vision is that it is home grown – Made in Liberia. Not a one-size-fits-all dream imported from elsewhere and super-imposed on an African nation that can barely walk in it. It is contextualized and custom made to fit our particular needs and environment. It is achievable and absolutely sustainable. But he even went further to address those who may have fallen between the cracks despite their best efforts and lost hope. Indeed, hopelessness can drive people to the depths of vice; and when the hopeless outnumber the hopeful, as the case may be, that is dangerous for the stability of a nation-state. The Independence Day orator offered hope to those who, although they would rather work than steal, are nonetheless eking out a living on the margins of society, selling chewing gum and expired biscuits on the streets: “And to you, strong young men and women, who are walking up and down the streets of our main cities and towns selling chewing gum because you have yet to cultivate the skills to attract a remunerative wage paying jobs, offer to become an apprentice and accept a minimum wage today so that tomorrow, you will have acquired some skills to improve your capacity to obtain a decent job…“…Poverty need not be in your future. As human beings, we are endowed by our maker with great gifts of self-awareness, conscience, independent will and creative imagination. And our imagination is extremely powerful. It transforms lives, it has sent man to the Moon and today man is planning to vacation in outer space. Our endowments also provide us boundless energy and enthusiasm… They enable us not to be constrained by circumstances. Do not retain the attitude of hopelessness. Knock it off…“We can work within our circle of influence and, with a sense of personal worth and self-assurance, our inner drive and our creative imagination can catapult us from being street vendors to becoming merchants of Greenville and Barclayville, with our own stores and inventories; from being market woman selling tomatoes grown in Cote d’Ivoire to becoming vegetables and fruits producing farmers…“I vision car loaders with imagination and vision one day becoming owners of taxi cabs. Achieving those lofty goals, however, depends upon ourselves, not on our Government; achieving such goals depends on our own self-image; our creative imagination, our ability to be transparent and accountable, our willingness to re-pay our loans; and our taking advantage of pivotal opportunities in our lives.”Ambassador Minor’s vision for a new Liberia should give hope to every Liberian; and every Liberian should take courage, be inspired and join forces to build the developed nation we wish to see in our lifetime.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

No adverse effects from mining operations on biodiversity – Guyana Goldfields

first_img…says strict no hunting policies may be providing refuge for speciesBy Jarryl BryanGuyana Goldfields maintains that not only does it practice land reclamation, but it’s strictly enforced no hunting zones may have unwittingly created safe zones for wildlife.The brown Sipa snake, images of which were captured as part of the monitoring programme at the locationDuring a recent tour of the Aurora Gold Mines facilitated by the Canadian owned company, Sustainability Manager Jermaine Critchlow explained that they have a biodiversity monitoring programme as well as research into what effect they are actually having on the environment.Critchlow explained that the company sets up cameras around the mining operation, which are specifically placed for capturing video and images of the different wildlife ranging from birds and ant eaters to snakes and big cats, as they interact in their natural habitat.“The idea here is to monitor the activities of animals. Ensure we don’t affect them, they’re not moving away. And so far, our research shows that since 2016 we have not had a negative impact on the biodiversity in the area. They’re there and some of these pictures will show it,” Critchlow said, displaying images of several animals captured by biodiversity cameras.Sustainability Manager Jermaine Critchlow“But we also need to compare it to an area that we’re not mining and we’re not active. So far, the results have shown promising. The mining is not affecting the biodiversity in the area. We also do bird surveys, to ensure we don’t affect the avian species in and around the area.”RefugiumCritchlow also explained the concept of refugium, a natural phenomenon in which a once widespread animal population flourishes in a particular habitat with qualities that support their presence. At this point, Critchlow showed a video of several wild Otters swimming in water not far away from the mining operation.“Refugia, basically means (on) our concession, we enforce strict no hunting, no fishing policies. Would that encourage biodiversity to increase in the area? We still have to do studies to prove this,” Critchlow said.“That’s a giant otter. In 2009, we did a study. And we had none of these species occurring in the area from our studies. But now they are in the area. We don’t know if they’re just passing through or if they want to make it home. But this just shows that biodiversity is coming in. And because our environmental footprint is small, we’re not negatively affecting the environment.”It was also revealed that a group of Capybaras, the world’s largest living rodent, has actually made waterways within the mining range their home. Critchlow also noted the importance of land reclamation, which is replanting vegetation and rehabilitating mined out areas.“Monitoring is very key. Because we’re a 24 /7 operation, we have to keep monitoring. We need to take cognizance of the area that we’re in and respect our bio diversity and ensure we don’t negatively impact our biodiversity in this area.”“Water quality is very key to us. We need to manage our waste properly and ensure we do land reclamation,” Critchlow said. “By doing all of this, we tie into the green state development strategy of the country.”According to the company, it has so far reclaimed and re-vegetated 85 hectares of land. In addition, it is understood that it is developing potential green renewable energy options such as solar.The company says it is also investigating waste disposal options with an eye to the future. Already, it employs an integrated approach of reduce, reuse and recycle, to waste disposal. It is also subject to compliance inspections, while it does its own monitoring.At present, the company is looking to go into new territory in the form of underground mining. It has already secured clearance from the Environmental Protection Agency. Final clearance has to come from the Guyana Geology and Mines Commission.last_img read more

DD Fitness: Rebuilding your core after childbirth

first_imgThis week Donegal Daily’s fitness columnist Emmet Rushe, owner and operator of Rushe Fitness, talks about how you can rebuild your core and pelvic floor after giving birth! This weekend, I will be talking at the North West’s Premier baby fayre, ‘Bump and Beyond’. My talk will be on exercise post-pregnancy and I’ll be talking about rebuilding the core and pelvic floor again after childbirth.My wife had 2 C-sections with our daughters and wasn’t given any advice on proper training for the abdominal area. The only thing she was told repeatedly was “Keep doing your kegels.” While this is true, it’s not enough. It seems to be a case of “Congratulations. Be careful now. You have just had surgery.”Let’s face it, if you had any other major operation in the abdominal region, you wouldn’t be allowed to pick up a cup for 4-6 weeks.You do not get this luxury however after giving birth. The abdominal area and the pelvic floor are extremely important.Every woman wants them functioning properly after childbirth, but this is the area that is often the most difficult to regain control over. The golden rule for exercise after any type of birth is to wait until after your 6 week check up with your doctor.After that, the focus of your training should be on getting stronger and rebuilding the areas that were weakened during pregnancy.Yes, weight loss is another goal to have, but it should not take precedence over getting yourself strong and healthy again.Strength training should be your main focus after childbirth.Using the right exercises will help strengthen your back and core is extremely important considering you will be lifting a baby that will get progressively heavier over the coming weeks. You can use your own body weight, resistance bands, dumbbells, kettlebells, barbells depending on what you have at home, or what is available in your gym.Home workouts may suit better at the start, as time is a luxury we don’t always have when we have a new baby in the house.You can use anything in the 5-15 rep range for 2-3 sets and you should use proper form through all exercises.So, if you were doing a squat for example, you would do 10 reps, take a short rest and repeat for 2-3 sets. You can train the full body in each session, but you should have a focus on the posterior chain.This involves the glutes (butt), hamstrings, and upper back muscles.You have had all that extra weight on the front side of your body throughout your pregnancy and it can have an adverse effect on your lower back and your posture.Exercises like Sumo Deadlifts, squats, reverse lunges, glute bridges, hip thrusts, rows, and pulling exercises for the upper pack should be your main focus.They will help to strengthen the back and may prevent back pain!When it comes to the core, the training you should be doing isn’t what you think. Sit-ups are the last thing that you should do when trying to rebuild the core again.Exercises like the ones listed below would be more suitable to what you need rather than sit ups.• DEAD BUGS.• SIDE PLANKS• FRONT PLANKS (DEPENDING ON DIASTASIS RECTI)• FARMER’S WALKS• PALLOF PRESSESRemember that the aim is to rebuild the area first, this should come before any thoughts of abs.If Diastasis Recti is an issue, these 2 exercises below are a good way to start with some core training to help with this issue. I got these from Jessie Mundell, a post pregnancy training expert.• HEEL SLIDES• GLUTE BRIDGE• 8-15 REPS, 1-2 SETS, 3-7 DAYS PER WEEK.Problems with the pelvic floor can go on for years after childbirth if it is not strengthened properly. Kegels (pelvic floor contractions) should be done daily. Try and get in the habit of doing 1 or 2 sets of 10 repetitions when you can.You can also progress these into your strength work, for example on the upward movement of a squat you can draw the pelvic floor up on each rep.If you have problems with your pelvic floor, there are certain exercises that you may want to avoid.Try to avoid jumping jacks, running, squat jumps and box jumps until your pelvic floor is rock solid and this could be many months postpartum, depending on your recovery.Some women are capable of resuming physical activities within days of delivery depending if they were physically active before and during pregnancy.In the absence of medical or surgical complications, rapid resumption of these activities has not been found to result in adverse effects.Regular aerobic exercise in lactating women has been shown to improve maternal cardiovascular fitness without affecting milk production, or infant growth.Nursing women should consider feeding their infants before exercising in order to avoid exercise discomfort.Nursing women also should ensure adequate hydration before commencing physical activity.If you are short on time, or have pelvic floor issues and you would like to get your strength and cardio training in, short mini circuits are a simple way to get them done.This another great one from Jessie Mundell.10 reps each exercise on each side if applicable, 2-5 sets.• 1a) Kb sumo deadlift• 1b) TRX Rows• 1c) Reverse lunges• 1d) 1/2 kneeling banded chest pressWhenever you choose to start back training again postpartum the most important consideration is starting slow and being safe.If you have exercised before, consider your current fitness level. Do you have any injuries? Do you have any illnesses? Always consult your doctor.If you would like more information on training before, during or after pregnancy, check out this great resource here.You can find out more about Jessie at http://jessiemundell.com/#TrainSmartIf you are looking for a way to train from home and use techniques like above to help with your weight loss, I have launched my Little Black Dress Challenge program.Want to take on the Little Black Dress Challenge?

LADIES FOOTBALL: MOVILLE THROUGH TO ULSTER MINOR LADIES FINAL

first_imgMoville minor ladies progressed to the semi final of the Ulster Ladies Minor Championship with an empathic win over Kinawley from Fermangh today on a scoreline of 7-11 to 1-02.The game was played in brilliant sunshine in Malin due to Moville pitch being closed, started with both teams appearing both cautious and nervous. Moville opened the scoring on 4 mins with a pointed free from captain, Charmaine Mc Dermott. This appeared to settle the very youthful Moville side and when sister, Nicole Mc Dermott raised the green flag after 6 mins, followed by the second point from Sarah Jane Mc Donald, it looked already like there was always going to be one winner. Moville players worked hard all over the pitch closing the opposition down and forced turnover after turnover, many of which resulted in scores for the home team. Moville lead 3-06 to 0-02 at half timeThe second half started with Moville again on the front foot resulting in an opening point straight from the throw up from Nicole Gordon following some great work by the midfield duo of Charmaine Mc Dermott and Blathnaid Mc Laughlin. From the resulting kick-out, the ball was won by Nicole Gordon who retuned the compliment by passing to the oncoming Mc Laughlin who blasted to the back of the net. Kinawley to their credit, never give up but they struggled to break down the resolute Moville defence who dominated the final third of the pitch. Moville pressed on and closed out the game on a scoreline of 7-11 to 1-02. Moville now play the winners of St Pauls (Belfast) and Sperrin Óg (Tyrone) on the 24th of this month at a time and venue TBC Turning point- it came early in the game on 15 mins with Moville second goal, giving them a 9 point cushion and Kinawley a mountain to climb to get back in the gameReferee watch- a good game from Strabane man Sean O Kane, in the middle, albeit, he seemed to award , a few harsh frees against both teams but was consistent throughout, retired injured with 15 mins to go was replaced by 4th official.Player of the match- a great all round team performance but both Rachael Mc Laughlin and Sinead Mc Guinness, deserve a mention both of whom worked tirelessly and unselfishly throughout.  LADIES FOOTBALL: MOVILLE THROUGH TO ULSTER MINOR LADIES FINAL was last modified: November 18th, 2013 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:GAALadiesMinorsmovillelast_img read more
