Anderson steals day two of Carifta Trials

first_imgVere Technical’s 16-year old hurdler Britany Anderson was the star performer on yesterday’s second and final day of the Carifta Trials held inside the National Stadium. She raced to a World Youth leading time of 13.21 seconds, in a negative wind of 3.2m per second, to win the Girl’s Under-18 100m hurdles event. Anderson who has been creating quite a storm this season in the event and who posted a fast 13.18 seconds, also in negative wind at the Youngster Goldsmith Development Meet, defeated a quality field. A first year Class 2 athlete at the ISSA-GraceKennedy Boys and Girls Championships, Anderson got a perfect start to win, going away from Manchester High’s Daszay Freeman. Freeman, the defending Class 2 champion in the event, was second in 13.44 seconds, with Holmwood Technical’s Shanette Allison, the bronze medallist in the event at Champs a year ago, finishing third in 13.54 seconds. It was a sweep of the hurdles events for Vere Technical athletes, as Amoi Brown was also impressive in winning the Under-20 event. Running in a negative wind of 1.0 metres per second, Brown controlled the race early to win impressively in 13.33 seconds. Getting back to good form, it was second for Wolmer’s Girl’s athlete Janeek Brown in 13.52 seconds, with Edwin Allen High’s Gabrielle McDonald taking third in 13.57 seconds. It was also a clean sweep by Calabar High in the sprint hurdles, with World Under-20 representative Dejour Russell leading the way. A fourth place finisher in Poland last year, Russell got one of his best-ever starts to win the Boy’s Under-18 110m hurdles in 13.31 seconds, running in a negative wind of 0.8m per second. Kingston College’s, Wayne Pinnock finished second in 13.71 seconds with Oquendo Bernard finishing third in 13.80 seconds. OUTSTANDING RESULTS Russell’s teammate Orlando Bennett (13.86) got the better of his former teammate Alex Robinson of Wolmer’s Boy’s, second in 13.90 seconds to win the Under-20 event, as Philip Lemonious of Jamaica College got third in 14.02 seconds. There were also outstanding results in the 400 metres led by IAAF World Under-20 representative, Christopher Taylor of Calabar, who had a sub 46 seconds clocking. Running out of lane four, Taylor, competing in the event for the first time this season, was out of the blocks very fast and controlled the race throughout to win in 45.41 seconds. Kingston College’s Dashawn Morris ran well for second in 46.67 seconds with third going to Malik Smith of Bridgeport High in 47.39 seconds. Antonio Watson captured the Boy’s Under 18 event in 47.08 seconds ahead of Ramone Lindo of Vere in 47.18 seconds, with third going to Jevaughn Powell of Edwin Allen in 47.26 seconds.last_img read more

Table tennis bouncing back in Trelawny

first_img Tennis association’s goal That is in line with the goal of the national table tennis association to have 15,000 people playing the game. As the Trelawny play-off competition spun along, he envisaged, “It is a view to build a nucleus from which we can build on for national teams or other parish teams.” Apparently, there are encouraging signs that the Trelawny table tennis revival is gathering support. “People are catching the vision and there are people recognising that table tennis is important and can be a vehicle for stemming crime and violence in Trelawny, especially among youngsters”, he said. In fact, the play-offs were to be followed by a weekend training camp at the Melia Braco Hotel in Rio Bueno. The schools contesting the play-offs were Westwood High School, Holland High School, William Knibb Memorial High School, Troy High School, Albert Town High School, Cedric Titus High School and Muschette High School. Lawrence believes the cooperation that made the play-offs possible will lift table tennis in Trelawny. “We’re now developing a network that can build table tennis … and build sport in general,” he noted. In a final recommendation for the game, Lawrence invoked its value to practitioners of other sports. “Sir Garfield Sobers and Viv Richards would say that their pastime was table tennis”, he observed, “because it builds your reflex, and we want to use this now to build other parts of the discipline called sports.” Trelawny, the parish that gave Jamaica its only female Caribbean table tennis champion, is pushing the sport again. The renewed table tennis energy is two-fold. According to Trelawny Table Tennis Association president R. Raymond Lawrence, the goal is to produce champions again and to encourage many more to play the game. Speaking at the recently held parish team play-offs in Falmouth, Lawrence explained, “The vision is to see a champion coming from Trelawny again, Trelawny being the captain of table tennis.” The reference linked to a famous past when Anita Belnavis won the Caribbean singles title in 1977 and placed second in the CAC Games the following year. She later formed a strong pairing with Aldith Ellis that made Trelawny a powerhouse in the sport. Lawrence wants to bring those days back, but in addition, he wants to increase the opportunities for the public to play. “If I want to play football, I can go play anywhere”, he reasoned, “If I want to play cricket, I can find a team, but if I want to play table tennis, I cannot. “I want to fix that”, he said. “That is my vision,” Lawrence continued. “Somewhere persons can go and just play table tennis just for the fun of it.”last_img read more

King calls for Rangers shareholders meeting to axe club board

first_img1 King calls for Rangers shareholders meeting to axe club board Dave King has called for a general meeting at Ibrox to ask Rangers shareholders to overthrow the entire club board.The South Africa-based millionaire – who is now the club’s biggest single shareholder with a 15 per cent stake – will call for the heads of chairman David Somers, chief executive Derek Llambias, financial director Barry Leach and director James Easdale.In their place, he plans to nominate himself, former Blue Knight Paul Murray and John Gilligan – the one-time managing director of Glasgow brewer Tennent’s – as their boardroom replacements.King is now hoping he can pull together a majority coalition to force through sweeping boardroom change.He said in a statement: “I confirm that a requisition for a general meeting has been hand delivered to Ibrox Stadium.“The requisition consists of four resolutions for the removal of the incumbent board and three resolutions for the appointment to the board of myself, Paul Murray and John Gilligan.“The resolutions do not seek to review the employment of the two executive directors presently on the board. They will merely be removed as directors.“I would not have called for a general meeting if I was not confident, from my review of the present shareholder register, that it will be supported by more than 50 per cent of the total registered shareholders.“While many of the shareholders hold differing views as to what is right for the club, I believe that a clear majority are like-minded on one key point – the need to remove the incumbent board and to replace it with individuals who can gain the trust of fans, sponsors and the shareholder community.”The meeting must take place between three and six weeks from now.If the board is axed, it is understood King – who is working alongside the Three Bears partners Douglas Park, George Letham and George Taylor – also wants to carry out a forensic examination of contacts signed by the club over the past three years, including the deal with kit suppliers Puma.Between them, King and the Three Bears have 34 per cent and they now face a race against time to gather enough support to reach 51 per cent.last_img read more

first_imgLiam McShea: Made generous offerSUPERVALU supermarkets across Donegal have come to the rescue in a Christmas toy appeal for needy families in the county.Yesterday the Donegal County Childcare Committee revealed how it was struggling to cope with the large volume of requests for its Presents for Percy Appeal.The appeal, which has been going since, 2011, sources presents for needy families across Donegal whom Santa may not be able to visit. However, manager of DCCC Avril McMonagle, told Donegal Daily that they had been forced to turn away some families because the demand for the appeal was so high.Avril wrote a personal heartfelt appeal to businesses across Donegal to help them come to the aid of less well-off families so that Santa would turn up to ALL families on Christmas morning.After reading the appeal on Donegal Daily, one man decided he would like to act on Avril’s letter.Liam McShea, manager of Kavanagh’s SuperValu in Dungloe has now offered to collect toys at his store for the DCCC to pass on to needy families. Big-hearted Liam is also contacting other SuperValu outlets across Donegal to see if they will back the campaign.We will keep you posted on this wonderful gesture by Liam.It’s good to know that the real spirit of Christmas is still alive in Donegal.“I am the manager here in Kavanagh’s SuperValu Dungloe, just read your article regarding the DCCC and I am sickened by the thought of those poor kids and families in Donegal who may miss out on the spirit of Christmas. We would be delighted to help out with a campaign similar to the SVDP one we have done the last 4 years where our customers dropped off gifts for the needy in our locality. If you could let the DCCC know of our idea and they can contact us here in Dungloe and I am sure our other stores in our group will also help out in Buncrana, Donegal town and Ballybofey. Between our 4 stores last we collected 100s of toys.”SUPERVALU TO THE RESCUE IN DONEGAL CHRISTMAS TOY APPEAL was last modified: November 30th, 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:Avril McMonagledonegalDonegal County Childcare CommitteeDonegal DailydungloeSuperValulast_img read more

Fast cleanup demanded

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week Smith, who is charged with 36 felony counts of grand theft, illegally storing and disposing of hazardous waste, and forgery, is out on bond. Dunbar, who is charged with one count of grand theft, is free based on a written promise to appear in court. Both men were arrested Sept. 28. A state investigation showed 331 occasions when the companies picked up waste but did not take it where they were supposed to. On 273 occasions, somebody forged signatures on documents indicating the waste had been delivered to disposal facilities, state officials said. Smith & Thompson’s attorney said the firm’s ownership has changed since the arrests and he has been talking with county officials about speeding up removal of the piles, which were placed there by S&S. Smith & Thompson wants to hire another company with bigger trucks to haul the material away more quickly than it can do itself, attorney Gary E. Moll said. “It is our intention to move that off as quickly as possible,” Moll said. LANCASTER – Los Angeles County Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich called for a rapid cleanup of property owned by a waste-hauling firm whose former operators are accused of illegally storing industrial waste and falsifying documents. Antonovich directed county Department of Health Services officials to work with state health officials to speed up the removal from Smith & Thompson Pumping’s property of 8-foot-tall piles of waste material, now leaving at the rate of one or two truckloads a week. “We’re going to use every resource available to get this site cleaned up,” Antonovich aide Norm Hickling said Friday, standing at a neighboring steel-fabrication yard where people say they have been sickened by fumes coming off Smith & Thompson’s yard. Sherwin Smith, co-owner of sister firm S&S, and truck driver Marvin Dunbar have pleaded not guilty to criminal charges filed against them by Los Angeles County prosecutors. Moll said in court documents that the firm transports cooking grease, carwash sludge, waste water from perfume- and shampoo-type manufacturing and septic matter, none of them considered hazardous waste under state law. The firm keeps grease and carwash sludge at its West Avenue L-9 property to allow it to dry out before it is taken to a disposal facility, Moll said in a court document. The piles of material that are being removed are described in a county health department memo as pumice, which Mall said is used in the stone-wash process for blue jeans. “It’s harmless,” Moll said. Attorney Anthony Patchett, representing neighbors who say fumes and dust coming off the property is making them ill, said he believes the pumice was mixed with septic tank waste, camouflaging the septic waste and allowing the operators to avoid paying to dispose of it at a sewage treatment plant. Neighbors said dust blown off the piles burns their eyes and makes breathing difficult. Neighbors obtained a temporary restraining order this week from Antelope Valley Superior Court Judge Frank Jackson, barring Smith & Thompson from storing more waste on its property, and ordering it to make sure the existing waste doesn’t blow away or seep into the ground. Neighbors complain that they had to take action because city and county officials were not acting quickly enough to protect them. “People get agitated because nothing happens,” said businessman Steve McIntosh, who owns a golf cart sales and repair business across the street. “It’s gone on too long.” An odor comes off Smith & Thompson’s property that smells to him “like fried puke,” McIntosh said. Neighbors on Thursday dug up two 55-gallon drums buried at the neighboring property that Smith & Thompson occupied until about 18 months ago. Patchett, the neighbors’ attorney, said he was told 20 more barrels, and possibly larger containers, were seen being buried on the property, which is now a steel fabrication yard. A Los Angeles County Fire Department hazardous-materials unit was called out Friday to examine the barrels, which a fire captain said contained a dry substance that looked like cement dust. The barrels’ contents did not give off flammable vapor and were not acid or caustic, said Capt. Henry Sanchez of Hazardous Materials Task Force 130. There is no way to know how long the drums were there, he said. “It didn’t pose any problems,” Sanchez said. The barrels were dug up by neighbors, using a friend’s small bulldozer, after environmental officials said they would not look for the drums that were said to be buried on the property. “Nobody would come do it,” said Patchett, the attorney. “They said if you find something, you give us a call. That’s what we did.” Charles F. Bostwick, (661) 267-5742 chuck.bostwick@dailynews.com 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Tags:#enterprise#news#Products 3 Areas of Your Business that Need Tech Now Related Posts alex williams We spent a lot of time at Lotusphere talking with vendors about how they are moving forward with IBM, and their views about IBM’s collaboration strategy.In particular, we looked at companies that are integrating with IBM collaboration software products: Alfresco Software, Tungle and FewClix.These companies are examples of how the enterprise is transforming into an environment where third-party products will integrate with existing collaboration technologies.
