Bravo out of T&T squad pending WICB meeting

first_imgPORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad (CMC):Marquee left-hander Darren Bravo has been left out of the Trinidad and Tobago Red Force 14-man squad for this month’s Regional Super50 pending the outcome of a meeting with the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) pertaining to his disciplinary issues.The 27-year-old was sent home by the WICB ahead of the Tri-Nations Series in Zimbabwe over a controversial tweet and has not played competitively since.Suruj Ragoonath, the T&T Cricket Board’s chief executive, said Bravo’s participation in the January 24 to February 18 showpiece hinged on the player’s meeting.”In furtherance to the team for the Super50, do note that Darren Bravo’s availability is dependent on the outcome of his pending meeting with the WICB,” Ragoonath said.Bravo found himself in trouble last November when he labelled WICB president, Dave Cameron, a “big idiot” via online social networking service, Twitter, in response to the administrator’s comments which were critical of his performances.UNACCEPTABLE BEHAVIORBravo was then sent home “due to inappropriate and unacceptable behaviour, which is contrary to his contractual obligations to the WICB” and warned that if the offending tweet was not removed, he could “face further disciplinary action, including referral to the WICB disciplinary committee”.Media reports subsequently said Bravo would initiate legal action against the board.Last year, Bravo played a major role in Red Force’s Super50 triumph, scoring 274 runs from three innings including 97 in the final against Barbados Pride.He is one of several key names missing from this year’s squad, with all-rounder Dwayne Bravo, Kieron Pollard, Sunil Narine, Lendl Simmons and Samuel Badree all unavailable.Red Force, the reigning champions, will compete in Group A of the Super50 alongside Leeward Islands Hurricanes, West Indies Under-19s, Windward Islands Volcanoes and English County side, Kent Spitfires.SQUAD: Denesh Ramdin (captain), Kyle Hope, Evin Lewis, Kjorn Ottley, Jason Mohammed, Nicholas Alexis, Roshon Primus, Ravi Rampaul, Shannon Gabriel, Khary Pierre, Jon-Russ Jaggesar, Imran Khan, Sheldon Cottrell, Rayad Emrit.

Beermen on guard

Guiao, however, is asking something different from his team.“They (Road Warriors) cannot just watch him,” Guiao said after Ravena carried NLEX on his shoulders on the way to 31 points even if Magnolia’s defenses were trained on him all game last week. “The kid’s really good but you don’t want your entire campaign hinging on a rookie.“We simply cannot be over-reliant on Kiefer and cannot depend on one player to carry us through, that’s not our style.”Austria said he was in awe seeing Ravena do damage on the star-studded Hotshots. His entire team also saw all of this, and it brings him some sort of confidence.“They feel challenged,” Austria said, when asked on whom he will throw at Ravena. “They all feel that he is not a rookie. Ravena is playing like a superstar veteran at this point and that has challenged my players.”ADVERTISEMENT OSG plea to revoke ABS-CBN franchise ’a duplicitous move’ – Lacson Jiro Manio arrested for stabbing man in Marikina MOST READ Nonito Donaire vs Naoya Inoue is BWAA 2019 Fight of the Year Guiao, meanwhile, is particularly concerned on stopping one man at San Miguel and correcting a worrying statistic.“We have been outrebounded in our last two games.

Adolescent Girls Ready to Move Out of the Shadows

first_imgExtraordinary voices that rose during a recent forum held by Kula Fofana for, on the visit of Under Secretary General and Executive of UN Women, Ms. Phuzile Mlambo-Ngcuka, left a podium of listeners awestruck and proud on how articulate Liberian adolescent girls are.“It is refreshing to hear how concerned you are about your future,” Ms. Mlambo Ngcuka said.Nervous, yet ready to move from behind the shadows of those who have always spoken out for them, were girls and teenagers with stories of their own who voiced out their concerns, issues, aspirations and recent let downs.Romaine (not her real name) shared her experience about how she became disadvantaged and is now living in the quarters of the Tink Safe House. “I had a baby at a very young age and ended up running away because of the circumstances surrounding that. I’ve found myself, along with my baby, for the past four years in the safe house of people who care about my wellbeing. If God could provide this type of people throughout the rest of my life, I know my future will be a bright one,” she stated.The voices of two speakers – two girls– moved Ms. Mlambo-Ngcuka to frantically write down what they had to say. “The lack of support in participating at the international level is my concern. Why do we have to be left out but allow others to speak out for us when that’s not what we really want to say?” questioned Joanne Christensen, a student.“I believe strongly that young women should be afforded opportunities to participate in lead roles, as it relates to issues of governance, etc. It is always the case that young women are being kept in the background and always overshadowed because adults claim we are not strong enough and productive enough, which is not true. We have a lot of potential, but because we are always shut out we don’t get to speak out or showcase our talents, therefore, no one really knows what we are capable of doing and I think that’s wrong.” According to Joanne, who visibly moved the audience with her honest statements, she indicated that young Liberian women need opportunities to excel. Job opportunity, for example, she said is a challenge because most youths under 24 do not have work experience.“At 24 you are expected from the job angle to have had some level of job experience. If you go for a job interview they expect you to have some level of experience. Opportunities should be available for young women to showcase their talents. If at first you don’t exceed, keep trying as the saying goes,” she advised. Meanwhile, 22 year-old Norwu K. Harris claims she has been a member and coordinator working with ‘Sisters with Power’ for the past seven years dealing with adolescent girls, and is now a junior mentor of that organization. Teenage girls voice their concerns“Teenage pregnancy is on the increase and it is hampering our future. I believe young girls have all the mechanisms to help make the world a better place and some of you have the hand to help reduce this problem. Teenage pregnancy is one of those key issues affecting us, including early marriage, sex and rape. All of these issues are putting us down. How can we participate fully? I hope the executives of UN Women will look at these issues and how we can be helped so we can be better in the future,” said an adolescent girl.“Our economy is poor, some of our parents are poor and as a student I need money for books, uniform and lunch. Where do I get the money from, or how do I help my parents get it and find solutions to this?” asked another adolescent girl.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

DONEGAL LEAGUE DEFEND HANDLING OF FIXTURES ON FAI CUP SEMI-FINAL WEEKEND

first_imgDonegal League officials have faced a barrage of criticism from the soccer fraternity within Donegal over their handling of the FAI Cup semi-final between Finn Harps and St. Patrick’s Athletic this Sunday.The Donegal League suspended fixtures on the weekend Donegal played Dublin in the All-Ireland semi-final.They took the same decision last weekend when Donegal contested the All-Ireland final. League officials were praised for the decision made on both occasions as the demand to see both games in the county was extraordinary.However, with Harps playing in the FAI Cup semi-final, which is the soccer equivalent to an All-Ireland semi-final, it was expected that the process would be repeated.It hasn’t, and that has left many players and officials involved with clubs in the Donegal League extremely angry by the decision.One such player to voice his dismay was Kildrum player Brian Coll, whose brother Ciaran plays for Finn Harps. His Kildrum side face Cranford this weekend and he now has to choose between either playing for his local side this weekend, or watching his younger brother play in one of the biggest games of his career.It’s a decision Coll feels he shouldn’t have to make especially when they’ve already cancelled two rounds of fixtures for the GAA.Coll posted on Facebook, “Right can anyone explain to me WHY the Donegal league cancelled games for the GAA an they can’t cancel games for the only senior team in Donegal in the Fai semi final on Sunday comin .. If ya ask me it’s a joke..However, Gary Foy who is involved with Ballybofey United explained that the league is giving clubs the opportunity to postpone their matches this weekend or rearrange the fixture.Foy posted on Facebook, “if a club want to seek a postponement because of the Harps’ match they only have to contact the League. As Dean Boyce rightly says, reaction related directly to demand, the League stopped nobody from getting to the match, in fact they agreed to accommodate those who make contact and want to switch/postpone games. The clubs own the League and the committee simply organise it. However, the majority feel the decision shouldn’t be left to the clubs and that the league should have cancelled it’s fixtures for Harps as it did for the Donegal GAA team.Harps travel to Wexford tonight in their final away match in the league this season.Horgan is expected to play an experimental side ahead of Sunday’s crunch clash with St.Pat’s.He’ll not want to risk to many of his starting XI ahead of Sunday, so that should mean game time for some fringe players such as Carol Tiofack, Darragh Black and Shaun Patton.

Bush: Knee is ‘100 percent’

first_img Bush said he would also return punts with no problems. There was speculation Bush might not start in favor of tailback LenDale White, who has gained 376 yards the past two games. “Reggie’s full speed,” USC coach Pete Carroll said. No Harris: Cornerback-safety Will Harris did not make the trip, still bothered by a sore ankle. Because USC is taking 78 players, freshman quarterback Mark Sanchez makes his first trip since the season-opener at Hawaii. Road sellout: The Notre Dame game is a sellout, which is USC’s fourth straight road sellout this year and eighth straight sellout away from the Coliseum. In 1979-80, USC had 10 straight capacity crowds away from home and neutral sites, which is believed to be the record. TV history lesson: Saturday’s game will be televised on NBC. The first USC national telecast was in 1951 on NBC and also featured Notre Dame. The first opportunity for USC fans in Southern California to watch a live broadcast of a Trojans game from outside Los Angeles or Pasadena was a few weeks earlier, on Nov. 3, 1951, when USC defeated Army 28-6 at Yankee Stadium. That game featured Frank Gifford and also was televised by NBC. New turf: With USC leaving Thursday afternoon for the game, workers wasted no time tearing up the sod at Howard Jones Field. It needs to be replaced in time for Monday’s practice. New era: If anyone thinks Notre Dame quarterback Brady Quinn isn’t flourishing with new coach Charlie Weis, consider that Quinn has passed for only 273 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions in two meetings with USC. Quinn has already passed for more than 400 yards twice this season and has 13 touchdown passes in five games with three interceptions. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Bush proclaimed himself fit following Thursday’s practice at Howard Jones Field. “My knee’s fine.

Special guests: Carroll took his high school coach, Bob Troppman, on the trip along with some of his former professors at the University of the Pacific in Stockton.

Bearish news for soybeans in March 31 reports

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Soybeans saw bearish acres and stocks, corn prices had a friendly acres report and bearish stocks, and wheat was neutral following today’s Planting Intentions Report and Grain Stocks Report.Market talk about 2017 U.S. corn and soybean acres has been a dominant feature the last two weeks. During that time volume has been on the decrease. Daily price ranges from high to low, has been narrower than normal. Yet, the reality from previous report days suggests grain stocks are the more important number to watch. Grains stocks are a known number while acres are a prediction of what is yet to happen.Headed into the report traders were looking for bearish grain stocks and bearish acres numbers. Prior to the noon report, corn was up 2 cents, soybeans down 6 cents, and wheat was up 1 cent. Shortly after the report corn was up 4 cents, soybeans down 17 cents, with wheat up 2 cents.Today’s reports can be boiled down to two words, stocks and acres. Yet, in the simplicity of only two words, this day is often coined, “the most important USDA report day for the entire year.” It can also be a pretty volatile day for price action. Why? Big price moves have taken place in the past. December corn had it biggest up move on report day in 2011, up 30 cents. The biggest down day was 2013, down 32 cents. The average change is 10 cents. November soybeans biggest up day on report day was 2009, up 50 cents. The biggest down day was in 2008, down 70 cents. The average change was 20 cents. For perspective, daily price limits are, corn, 25 cents; soybeans, 70 cents, and wheat, 30 cents.U.S. corn acres in 2017 were estimated to be 89.996 million acres, big surprise. Last year U.S. corn acres were 94 million acres. The average estimate for corn was 90.9 million acres. Soybean acres for 2017 were estimated to be 89.482 million acres. Last year the U.S. soybean acres were 83.4 million acres. The average estimate for soybeans was 88.2 million acres. U.S. wheat acres in 2017 were estimated at 46.059 million acres. Last year the U.S. had 50.15 million acres of wheat. The average trade estimate was 46.13 million acres. It is no surprise corn and wheat acres were down while soybean acres were up. That has been a given conclusion for several months.US corn stocks on March 1 were estimated at 8.916 billion bushels. Last year corn stocks were 7.82 billion bushels. The average trade estimate was 8.53 billion bushels. US soybean stocks were estimated at 1.735 billion bushels. Last year soybean stocks were 1.53 billion bushels. The average trade estimate was 1.68 billion bushels. US wheat stocks on March 1 were estimated at 1.655 billion bushels. Last year wheat stocks were 1.37 billion bushels. The average trade estimate was 1.62 billion bushels.last_img read more

Facebook Like Moves Beyond the Dumb Grunt, Adds Comments to Like Button

first_imgFacebook is Becoming Less Personal and More Pro… Guide to Performing Bulk Email Verification The Dos and Don’ts of Brand Awareness Videos A Comprehensive Guide to a Content Audit Tags:#advertising#NYT#social networks#web center_img Related Posts marshall kirkpatrick One of the most obnoxious things about Facebook’s recent changes has been that clicking a Like button around the Web just pushed a dumb, inarticulate grunt out into the newsfeed of your friends. “I Like this thing,” it said, and nothing more. Today that’s changing, with the inclusion of a writable comment space inside the pop-up that appears when visitors Like something out around the Web.Messages sent with personal comments tend to get more click-throughs, the company said today. These messages will now also include a longer description of what’s being liked. This is a great change towards making the point of intersection between Facebook and the larger Web richer, more personal and less condescending.Update:Readers smarter than I point out in comments below that there have been other methods that enabled commenting in a Like button for some time. I stand corrected! I am also glad that it’s now all the easier, including here on ReadWriteWeb.To like in Facebook parlance might be to show support for something, it might represent the intention of subscribing to future updates or it might be an action that a user takes solely to gain access to priviledges exclusive to a page’s Fans, as they used to be called. Allowing users to post additional commentary just makes sense.To like an object is also to give that object’s owner some access to your personal and demographic information on Facebook. Such a complex interaction is inappropriate to make as simple as it has been and adding a place for users to annotate the signals they emit into their social graphs is a logical first step.Remember when George Bush joined Facebook, but in such a way that only people who liked his Fan page could write comments on it? How many of you would have liked to have added a comment to the message that went out to your friends saying you liked George Bush? I know I would have.last_img read more
