Hope, Carter tons set up huge target for Barbados Pride

first_imgBRIDGETOWN, Barbados (CMC):Test batsman Shai Hope and left-hander Jonathan Carter both gathered attractive unbeaten hundreds to power Barbados Pride into a match-winning position against leaders Guyana Jaguars yesterday.The right-handed Hope struck 114 not out, while Carter finished on exactly 100 not out as Pride stormed to 320 for four declared in their second innings on the penultimate day of the seventh-round encounter at Kensington Oval.Set an improbable 405 for victory, Jaguars were making a fist of it heading into today’s final day, however, finishing on 52 without loss – still 353 runs adrift of what would be a remarkable run chase.Test opener Rajindra Chandrika was unbeaten on 28 and was partnered by Tagenarine Chanderpaul on 23.The day belonged to Pride, in particular, Hope and Carter, who dominated the Jaguars’ much-vaunted spin attack, to put the hosts in control of the contest.Hope faced 225 balls in a shade over 5 1/2 hours at the crease and counted six fours, while Carter was the aggressor, hammering eight fours and three sixes in an innings requiring only 104 deliveries.For Hope, it was his fourth first-class hundred and second triple figure score in as many games, following his 162 against Windward Islands Volcanoes in the last round.Carter, meanwhile, collected his third first class hundred and his first of the season.The pair put on 162 in an unbroken fifth-wicket stand, which steadied the innings after Pride had lost two quick wickets for 16 runs to slip to 158 for four in the first hour after lunch.Brooks perished in the fifth over after lunch, caught at slip by Johnson, off pacer Keon Joseph and Roston Chase lasted just 11 balls before he edged a drive to Assad Fudadin at second slip, also off Joseph.The 24-year-old Keon Joseph was impressive in claiming two for 35, while Veerasammy Permaul finished with two for 108.Hurricanes poisedAt Addelita Cancryn Junior High School: Windward Islands Volcanoes, replying to Leeward Islands Hurricanes’ 327 all out, reached 323 for six in their first innings at the close on the penultimate day of their seventh-round match in the WICB Regional Four-Day Championship yesterday.Scores: HURRICANES 327 (Rahkeem Cornwall 97, Orlando Peters 47, Jahmar Hamilton 46, Nkrumah Bonner 41, Montcin Hodge 31, Kyle Mayers 5-83, Kevin McClean 3-56); VOLCANOES 323 for six (Devon Smith 89, Kavem Hodge 71 not out, Sunil Ambris 56, Jerlani Robinson 47, Kyle Mayers 30 not out, Jacques Taylor 2-52).last_img read more

Ram & McRae demands full inquiry into D’Urban Park Project

first_img…says investigations must shed light on directors, Govt roleReminiscent of the allegations of financial mismanagement that had accompanied the 2007 World Cup saga under the People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C), eminent accounting firm Ram & McRae has now called for a full inquiry into all aspects of the D’Urban Park Project, including the Government’s role and that of Homestretch Development Inc and its directors.The call for inquiry into the project and the several hundred million dollars that poured into the edifice through Homestretch Development Inc, attracted the attention of the accounting firm in its post-budget analysis of the 2017 Estimates.D’Urban ParkAccording to the firm, “There are so many conflicting versions of this matter that it is hard to know where to begin.”It was observed that the matter burst into the open only days ago when Minister of Public Infrastructure David Patterson admitted in the National Assembly that a private company – Homestretch Development Inc (HDI) – had been formed to undertake the D’Urban Park Project.Chartered Accountant Christopher RamHe named a number of persons as directors but whether by accident or design he omitted to mention Dr Rupert Roopnaraine as one of the directors.President David Granger on his weekly show, sought to defend Dr Roopnaraine and offered his views about HDI which he described as a special purpose company.According to Ram & McRae, “It appears that the President was misled into misleading the public as the company never was a special purpose company.”It was observed that, among the types of business it was formed to carry on included the “import and export generally to and from Guyana” and the “business of Real Estate.”This is confirmed in the Articles of Incorporation which stated that there is no restriction on the business the company could carry on.As such, Ram & McRae has determined, “That is not a special purpose company, if ever there was one.”It was observed too that President Granger was also reported as stating that the project was delayed because of the presentation of the Budget.“In fact, when the President spoke his government had presented two budgets – one in August 2015 before sand filling of the site had taken place – and the other in January 2016…HDI was incorporated in January 22, 2016, one week before the presentation of the 2016 budget in which $350 million was approved for the Jubilee Celebrations.”According to the accounting firm, “Whether a company is a special purpose vehicle, a government company or a private (non-government) company they are all required to comply with the Companies Act.”It was pointed out that the Act contains rules dealing with contracts entered before a company is incorporated, require an organisational meeting of the directors while the common law imposes fiduciary duties of incorporators and promoters.In addition to the $350 million voted in the 2016 Budget, a further sum of $406,758,312 was spent out of the Contingencies Fund for the “completion of D’Urban Park Development Project to facilitate the holding of Guyana’s 50th Independence anniversary celebrations.Ram & MaRae pointed out too that there would have also been moneys received from the celebrations all of which need to be accounted for: “In so far as the moneys were public moneys they ought to have been paid into the Consolidated Fund… As of now, there clearly are more questions than answers.”last_img read more

Luke Shaw blasts ‘horrendous’ Man United display

first_imgLeft-back Shaw apologised to supporters for United’s “awful” performance and said the players need to take a hard look at themselves while midfielder Juan Mata said he understood fans’ frustrations.“If you want the truth I think it was honestly horrendous,” Shaw told reporters. “We didn’t look like a team that was going to beat West Ham. I think individually and as a team we were awful.“That’s not good enough. It’s hard to take and we’re sorry to the fans for what they saw. It was not good enough from a Man Utd team with all the talent we have.”United’s reverse, which came after their midweek League Cup exit at the hands of Derby, means they have made their worst start in the league for 29 years.In addition to the problems on the pitch, Mourinho confirmed last week that Paul Pogba would not captain the side again after he had implicitly criticised the manager by urging the team to attack more.United’s haul of 10 points from seven games matches their return at this stage of the season under David Moyes in 2013-14 but their inferior goal difference means this is their worst top-flight start since they picked up seven points in 1989-90.Despite the growing pressure on the manager, Shaw believes it is the players who need to shoulder the blame.“We have to look at ourselves as players,” he said. “We’re the ones who go on the pitch. The manager isn’t on the pitch, is he?”Mata has scaled back his regular blog in the midst of a turbulent spell for the club as Mourinho prepares his team to face Valencia in the Champions League on Tuesday.“Today, my blog post is shorter than usual,” the former Valencia player said. “In fact, it isn’t really a time for posts. I want to thank all of you who support us during these tough times. I understand your frustrations.“The upcoming game against Valencia is a special one for me, but above all it is another chance to get back to winning ways.”Manchester United’s first open training session since a frosty exchange between Pogba and Mourinho last week passed without incident.Pogba, hauled off in the second half on Saturday, entered the training pitch with Sergio Romero and warmly greeted Mourinho’s coaching staff, having given Nemanja Matic a hug.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Luke Shaw acknowledges the fans after Manchester United’s 3-1 Premier League defeat to West Ham © AFP / Ian KINGTONLondon, United Kingdom, Oct 1 – Manchester United’s misfiring players need to take responsibility for a “horrendous” display against West Ham that leaves them languishing in 10th place in the Premier League, defender Luke Shaw said.United’s 3-1 defeat at the London Stadium on Saturday was their third in just seven league games and has left them nine points adrift of leaders Manchester City, as speculation mounts over the future of manager Jose Mourinho.last_img read more

Deputies hurt while chasing stolen truck

first_imgVAN NUYS – An officer suffered a broken leg early today when her cruiser crashed into a tree during a pursuit after swerving to avoid a car, officials said. The police car was westbound on Sherman Way, chasing a suspected stolen pickup truck, when it had to swerve to the left to avoid a car crossing Hayvenhurst Avenue. The police car then swerved to the right to avoid the center median and hit a tree, LAPD Lt. John Delvecchio said. The officer driving the car was examined at a local hospital and released, but his partner suffered a broken right leg and a head laceration in the crash, Delvecchio said. Police later arrested David Sassar and Enrique Morales, the men in the pickup truck, on suspicion of grand theft auto, officials said.

The officers ran the license plate and discovered the truck had been reported stolen in Van Nuys. The pursuit began when Sassar and Morales refused to pull over for the officers. The LAPD’s Valley Traffic Division is investigating the car crash to determine if the car traveling on Hayvenhurst Avenue committed any violations. “If you see any emergency vehicle, whether a fire truck, ambulance, or a police car with red lights, you’re supposed to pull over to the right and allow them the right of way,” Delvecchio said. — Josh Kleinbaum, (818) 546-3669 josh.kleinbaum@dailynews.com 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

You can’t take yourself seriously at all,” said Schiff, who called the interview “a blast.” Still, he added, “I’m preparing, as I think you have to, to be completely humiliated. Even if you get a few good zingers in, they probably won’t get in there (after editing).” The interviews are part of Colbert’s 434-part “Better Know a District series,” which highlights congressional districts. It was to have 435 parts until Colbert broke California’s 50th District off the map, declared it “dead” to him and let it float out in the Pacific as punishment to its constituents for not preventing the downfall of former Rep. Randy “Duke” Cunningham. Sanchez’s segment is expected to air this week, while Sherman’s and Schiff’s are scheduled for later this month, a Comedy Central spokesman said. Colbert has reportedly been having trouble landing Republicans, but Comedy Central spokesman Steve Albani insisted it’s merely a matter of scheduling. The show is currently “in conversations” with a number of California Republicans, he said, but declined to identify them. Rep. Elton Gallegly, R-Thousand Oaks, has not been contacted by the Colbert Report, a spokesman said. Albani acknowledged that GOP lawmakers might be scared off by the perception that the show leans left. But, he said, that’s not necessarily true. Indeed, Rep. Jack Kingston, a Georgia Republican who was an early Colbert target, even sent a memo to fellow Republicans urging them to “get in the ring and show ’em that Republicans have a sense of humor, too.” Besides, Albani said, for most members of Congress, “This is exposure you’re just not going to get.” Sanchez said the prospect of reaching a younger demographic was definitely an appeal of the show. “Younger voters tend to watch, and they can be hard to reach,” she said. The interviews lasted nearly two hours, and lawmakers said Colbert came armed with details about each congressional district. He asked Schiff about the Metro Gold Line, which runs from Pasadena to downtown, and issues of interest to Armenians, who make up a large portion of his constituency. To Sanchez, whose district includes Rose Hills Cemetery – supposedly the nation’s largest – Colbert asked, “Why do people go to your district to die?” As for the San Fernando Valley, Sherman said he gave offerings of Sunkist oranges and Budweiser beer, but nothing could shake Colbert’s fixation with the area’s seamier side. “He seemed absolutely obsessed with the idea – I don’t know where he got this idea – that the San Fernando Valley was home to the pornography industry,” Sherman said. The congressman played along with a mock pizza-delivery skit, later saying, “I don’t know what that was all about.” Given the so-called plot of many a low-budget porn flick, though, one can guess. Sherman said he did not expect to out-funny his host. “I put in some funny lines; he put in some funny lines. But only one person does the editing,” he said. Sanchez said she endured a few jokes about her sister colleague, Rep. Loretta Sanchez, D-Garden Grove. (Colbert asked which of them is Venus and which Serena.) And, she said, when Colbert wrapped up the show he shook her hand and said, “Thank you, Loretta.” “I said thank you, Mr. Stewart,” said Sanchez, referring to Jon Stewart, Colbert’s better-known former boss at “The Daily Show.” But, she added, “I’m sure they’ll edit that out.” Lisa Friedman, (202) 662-8731 lisa.friedman@langnews.com 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Brad Sherman, D-Sherman Oaks, said he knew he was taking a chance when he agreed to sit for a fake “news interview” with Comedy Central satirist Stephen Colbert. Being a “Colbert Report” fan since the show debuted last fall, Sherman said he was game despite the host’s reputation for merciless and deadpan mockery of politicians. “I’m not at all sure I came across well,” Sherman said of the segment that was taped Friday. But, he said, “It was fun.” Reps. Adam Schiff, D-Pasadena, and Linda Sanchez, D-Lakewood, also subjected themselves to a Colbert interview and said they, too, are bracing themselves for the telecasts. last_img read more

DONEGAL’S ALL IRELAND WINNING HURLERS TO BE HONOURED BY COUNCIL

first_imgDonegal County Council has confirmed that it will honour the Lory Meagher All-Ireland trophy winning Donegal hurlers at a civic reception in the County House Lifford.The event will take place after a successful motion was moved by Sinn Féin Councillor Jack Murray at Monday’s sitting of Donegal County Council.Welcoming the news Cllr Murray said “Donegal’s success in the Lory Meagher Championship was a fantastic achievement. Not only did it bring an enormous sense of pride to communities across the county but it also promoted the sport in parts of Donegal where hurling would not traditionally be played. “It is right and proper that the players and management of the Donegal team are fittingly honoured by the council for their accomplishment.“Hurling is Ireland’s oldest sport and, as such, has a unique place in Irish culture. My own local club in Burt has had a hurling club for over 120 years.“More and more GAA clubs are introducing the sport to children every year.“I feel that by honouring our All-Ireland winning county hurling team in such a manor we can build on the success of recent times and continue to promote this great sport to communities across Donegal.” DONEGAL’S ALL IRELAND WINNING HURLERS TO BE HONOURED BY COUNCIL was last modified: May 29th, 2012 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)last_img read more
