Jamaica advance despite beach soccer loss

first_imgJamaica’s beach soccer team has advanced to the quarter finals of the CONCACAF Beach Soccer Championships despite going down 3-2 to hosts Bahamas earlier in Nassau. The Jamaicans got their goals through Rohan Reid and Daemion Benjamin. Captain Andre Reid said that it was a really tough game. “I said to my coach earlier today that this is a game where if they beat us, it has to be a referee’s decision and it came right down to that,” he said. The Jamaicans conceded a free kick in the third minute of the game and Reid describes it as being like giving up a penalty, because of the size of the playing area and how close it was to goal. “We still go through even though we were playing to top the group but now we’ll just wait for the draw tomorrow and use the day to rest,” Reid told The Gleaner. The Bahamians have won the group with 7 points and the Jamaicans finished runners up, tied on 3 points with Guyana but advanced with a better goal difference. Belize have finished in last place on 1 point. The Beach Boyz will play their quarter final match on Friday, although they do not yet know their opponents.last_img read more

Breaking the cycle of absentee fathers: Leo Club launches “U Turn” project

first_img…aims to tackle fatherless homesBy Rennella BourneIn efforts to combat the high number of fatherless homes, the Leo Club of Georgetown in collaboration with the Men’s Affairs Bureau of the Social Protection Ministry launched the “U turn” project on Saturday (yesterday).A section of the gathering at the launch of the “U Turn” projectThe project launched at St Stanislaus College, is aimed at equipping men between the ages of 17 and 27, with skills, knowledge and resources to become better fathers to their children and better men in their communities.The newly-elected president of the Leo Club of Georgetown, Reedel James, told those gathered that he is pleased they have an interest in the topic because in society many are accustomed to living in homes dominated by women, and grandparents playing the role of absent fathers.U-Turn is a pilot project that is attempting to focus on three main areas where they believe young men that are fathers can better equip themselves for parenthood using three pillars which are to: be present, be a provider, and be a father.Phase one of the project commenced on Saturday with life skills training addressing social, psychological and attitudinal factors associated with the use of legal and illegal substances.Phase One also provides knowledge that will enhance the development of basic skills, personal competence, educational and job skills.Speaking to this publication James noted that he wanted the club to do something that was more voluntarism.“I came up with the idea of U-turn, along with the help of my colleagues, and after it was discussed we began planning.”James further added that the project is not tackling any specific community. He said the project is catering for as many men who are willing to participate in the three sessions of the project.Phases two and three will be held at the National Library which will be delving into Family Law and parenting skills in the upcoming Saturdays.last_img read more

NEWARK, N.J. – Federal authorities said Wednesday that the Muslim men suspected of plotting to massacre U.S. soldiers at Fort Dix were on the verge of carrying out their plan when they were arrested this week. “I think they were in the last stage of planning,” U.S. Attorney Christopher Christie said. “They had training, they had maps, and I think they were very close to moving on this. “Our view was they had pretty much gotten to concluding the planning phase of this and were looking to obtain heavy weaponry – and if not from us, they were going to try to obtain it elsewhere.” Members of the group were arrested Monday night in Cherry Hill, N.J., as they tried to buy AK-47 and M-16 assault rifles and other weapons from an FBI informant, authorities said. The men – four born in the former Yugoslavia, one from Jordan and one from Turkey – lived in Philadelphia and its suburbs with their immediate and extended families. Three were roofers, one drove a cab, and the two others worked at food businesses. The six – Mohamad Ibrahim Shnewer, 22; Dritan Duka, also called Anthony or Tony Duka, 28; Shain Duka, 26; Eljvir “Elvis” Duka, 23; Serdar Tatar, 23; and Agron Abdullahu, 24 – were ordered held without bail. Three were in the United States illegally; two had green cards allowing them to stay in this country permanently; and the sixth is a naturalized U.S. citizen. Abdullahu was familiar with Fort Dix because it was the first place he landed when arriving in the United States as a refugee from Kosovo, according to a law enforcement officials who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity. The United States allowed thousands of refugees into the United States after it intervened in the 1998-99 Kosovo war. Abdullahu arrived at Fort Dix as a teenager in 1999 as part of a group of about 4,400 refugees from Kosovo, officials said. The investigation began more than a year ago after a New Jersey store clerk was asked to transfer a videotape onto a DVD. The tape showed 10 men shooting weapons at a firing range and calling for jihad, prosecutors said. The 10 included the six men under arrest, authorities said. last_img read more

Site C opponents happy with some of the Panels recommendations

first_img“The panel has concluded the proponent has not fully demonstrated a need for the project. And they mention there are alternative sources of power at similar or somewhat higher costs, notably geothermal“.The Joint Review Panel put forward 50 recommendations for the project if it is to proceed. Chief Roland Wilson with the Moberly First Nation says the most notable recommendation is the need for a cumulative affects assessment.  “Whether or not Site C goes forward that B.C. needs to do a cumulative affects assessment up here because the amount of activity happening on the land”.One of the key arguments against Site C is the loss of farmland if the valley is flooded. The Joint Review Panel said by itself and in the context of B.C. or western Canadian agricultural production, the loss is not significant.- Advertisement -Morison says they had agricultural economists testify before the panel who said this land is significant.  “And they told the panel that this land is very important for the future of British Columbia”. The Provincial and Federal Governments will now have 120 days to decide if the project receives environmental certification.

Teaching a lesson in love

first_imgLANCASTER – A rising star on the local lecture circuit is Richard Grego, whose blueprint for a happy marriage is meant to teach couples how to find true and eternal love. Grego, who lived around the world as a boy with his family and now is a court interpreter in three languages, speaks at clubs and churches about how femininity and masculinity are key factors in “the building of God- guided choices for lifetime bliss.” “The path to this discovery has taken me a lifetime of contemplation, observation, experience, faith and the desire to finally understand the true nature of the love between a man and a woman,” said Grego, 55, of Lancaster. Grego believes a couple must find the “spatial-temporal” aspects of male and female. Space is the realm of the male while the female deals in time, he says. The father of three daughters and a son, he is single at the moment, but he harbors the certainty in his mind that his true mate will be directed to him at just the right time and place, if it is God’s will. “That may not be in my future,” he said, “but if she’s out there for me, if I’m patient and wait, I’ll find her.” Grego, who speaks English, Italian, Spanish and Portuguese, has been a Superior Court interpreter for 30 years. He loves his work and, through some of it, has seen the devastation caused by the marital failures. “Because of my own mistakes, I understand what is going on with them and it saddens me. I desperately want to help everyone in those situations to turn their lives around and have happy relationships,” he said. He’s available for lectures and seminars.

He will then formulate in his mind where he will take her but he suggests that she set the time. He likes to choose the place because that’s where he’s coming from (spatial). Usually she is good with that because it leaves her in her own temporal element,” he said. “A woman must be truly feminine and a man must be truly masculine in order for them to achieve a love-nurturing goal,” he said. “Each has power in his or her own right and the necessary balance does not come from equality but from equivalence. The quality of a relationship is what one makes of it.” Grego was born Dec. 18, 1950, in Covina, but grew up in Costa Rica, Turkey and Nicaragua. His Italian father worked for the United States Department of Health and traveled with his family to those countries to help eradicate malaria. From the time of Richard’s birth, he spoke Italian to his son and exposed him to the wonders of opera. When he was in his twenties, Grego’s parents retired in Costa Rica and he repatriated. “I’ve been married and divorced and had several relationships but I didn’t understand what it was that I wanted to do with my life until I realized how shallow I had been, confessed my shortcomings and asked for God’s forgiveness and guidance,” he said. last_img read more
