Michigan won, 64-63. APWICHITA, Kan. — Michigan freshman Jordan Poole drained a long 3-pointer at the buzzer after Houston squandered a chance to lock up a spot in the Sweet 16, giving the third-seeded Wolverines a heart-stopping 64-63 victory in the second round of the NCAA Tournament on Saturday night.Devin Davis had a chance to seal the win, but the Cougars’ gritty forward missed a pair of foul shots with 3.6 seconds left.

Monk visits Guyana to establish yoga society

first_imgMonk Acharya Siddeshvaranana from the Ananda Marga Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO) is visitingMonk Acharya SiddeshvarananaGuyana after five years to establish a centre for the Ananda Marga Yoga Society Guyana branch.Siddeshvaranana disclosed he was happy about the construction of a facility to accommodate members instead of having them use various locations to host their meetings. The NGO is focused mainly on yoga, meditation, chanting, mysticism and charity.Ananda Marga Yoga Society Guyana aims to help the Guyanese population through a variety of voluntary programmes. It plans to visit schools and educate students and teachers on the benefits of yoga and meditation.Siddeshvaranana has toured a number of other South American countries, including Paraguay, Uruguay and Brazil, lending his assistance to the people.“I just want to help people in this time where things are really heard and frustrating,” he told this newspaper. According to the Monk, “I am here watering seedlings while the land is fertile.”The Ananda Marga NGO disclosed that the goal was to make the world a better place, a prosperous one with opportunities for all, and to bring people upon a common platform of unity, love and multifaceted talents.It said meditation was tested at the Stanford University by Dr James Corby and was found to be one of the most powerful forces in time.“In many places of the world, people have enjoyed a multicultural, rich and diverse experience by incorporating Ananda Marga style of yoga in their own traditions,” the group noted.last_img read more

Who Goes to Justice Ministry?

first_imgFollowing the resignation on Monday, October 6, of former Justice Minister Cllr. Christiana P. Tah, rumors are now flying around Monrovia as to who will succeed the former Justice Minister.Liberia’s former Attorney-General and Minister of Justice, resigned her post for what she termed among other things, “collapse of rule of law” within the Ellen Johnson Sirleaf administration.Already, familiar names have been thrown from corner to corner, even within the corridors of power. Among the possible candidates are former Justice Minister under Liberia’s ex-President Charles Taylor, Cllr. Lavela Supuwood, the managing partner for the TIAWA Law and Associate, Cllr. Yarmie-Quiqui Gbeisay, Sr.,  President Sirleaf’s private lawyer, Cllr. Roland Dahn, as well as Cllr. Michael Jones, among others.But though Cllr. Jones’ name surfaced, his chances are infinitely remote since, regardless of his highly reputed knowledge of the law, the Supreme Court suspended him from practicing law for five consecutive years since 2012.Yet, to even drop his name in the bucket-list suggests that the President’s options may be assumed severely limited.  The Justice Ministry’s portfolio requires someone at the helm who is morally strong and knowledgeable enough to manage the nation’s security forces, on the one hand; and who can be the “lynch-pin” in the relationship between the Executive branch of Government and the Judiciary, on the other; and everything in between. Other names being mentioned within the public domain are the present Solicitor-General, Cllr. Betty Larmie Blamo (whose name came first on the list), as well as former Solicitor-General, Cllr. Tiawan Gongloe, and Cllr. Winston Tubman, among others. Cllr. Tubman in 2011, contested for the Liberian Presidency on the ticket of the opposition Congress for Democratic Change (CDC) against the incumbent President Sirleaf, but lost the vote. Tubman, who now runs a law practice in Monrovia, also served as Minister of Justice under the late President Samuel K. Doe in the early 1980s.  These names are being especially speculated among top-notch lawyers in the corridors of the Temple of Justice in Monrovia. Meanwhile, it is reliably learnt that following the resignation of Cllr. Tah, official activities at the Ministry of Justice are being paralyzed owing to recent decision by President Sirleaf to dismiss several highly placed officials of the MOJ.Without the prosecuting arm of the government in the face of Minister Tah’s resignation, security apparatuses, including the National Security Agency (NSA), the Liberian National Police (LNP), the Bureau of Immigration for Naturalization (BIN) and other smaller units are doomed to go-slow on operations, pending the appointment of their new boss by the President. The public is, therefore, hoping that President Sirleaf will appoint a candidate with strong moral character and a wealth of experience in the legal profession, particularly dealing with the public in the face of the country’s present day reality.  “This is to avoid any incident of regret in the wake of the resignation of Cllr. Tah,” one eminent lawyer hinted the Daily Observer Tuesday during a mobile phone conversation. Also, several other persons who spoke to the Daily Observer late yesterday expressed regret for Cllr. Tah’s resignation, indicating that her decision was a “great setback to the justice system since she was one of such persons with level-headed administrative qualifications.” On Monday, Cllr. Tah resigned her post when noted that “I cannot be the Minister of Justice and not supervise the operations of the security agencies under the Ministry of Justice, for example; or what is ‘the rule of law’ if the President asserts that she does not trust the Ministry of Justice to independently investigate allegations of fraud against the National Security Agency? What is ‘the rule of law’ if a duly appointed Minister of Justice with oversight for security has grave concerns about what her volitional resignation will mean for her own personal security and freedom as a Liberian citizen?”Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Nagamootoo says AFC can negotiate more power from APNU

first_img…even after abysmal performance at LGEIt has had a poor showing at the Local Government Elections (LGE), and criticisms abound that it has lost its independence since coalescing with the larger partner, A Partnership for National Unity (APNU), but Prime Minister Moses Nagamootoo is still hoping that his party, the Alliance For Change (AFC), can get a better deal out of the Cummingsburg Accord.The goodbye wave: Prime Minister Moses Nagamootoo as he exited the NECNagamootoo made this statement at St. Paul’s Retreat at Vryheid Lust on Saturday, only a short while before news emerged that party leader Khemraj Ramjattan had ousted him as the AFC’s preferred Prime Ministerial candidate for the upcoming elections.Asked by the media whether that party could expect the same allocation of parliamentary seats after the next General and Regional elections, his response was:“(We’ll) have to go back and reconfigure the formula. And however that is reformulated, it has to be what we old time politicians call dialectically. You have to take account of changes; everything has to happen in that way.“There is a platform we have been standing on so far, the Cummingsburg Accord, and we can improve on the platform. I’m hoping that we can.”Nagamootoo noted that even if the ruling of the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) necessitates early elections this year, an arrangement could be worked out in a short space of time, as occurred in 2015.The AFC has previously been criticised, especially from the parliamentary Opposition, for what many describe as the submissive role it has been playing since joining forces with APNU as a coalition ahead of the 2015 polls.Decisions such as the closure of sugar estates, which has put thousands of sugar workers out of jobs, have gone unchallenged, and have even been supported by the AFC. This despite the portfolio of the Ministry of Agriculture being held by an AFC party member, Noel Holder.In addition, there has been the strategic re-allocation of responsibilities away from Ministries headed by AFC officials to other Ministries. There is also the fact that, despite the Cummingsburg Accord stipulating that the Prime Minister has responsibility for chairing cabinet and domestic issues, this has not been followed through.The AFC top leadership had, in mid-November of 2017, moved to revise its governing agreement with its majority coalition partner. This made little headway, and talks of revising the agreement petered out after the AFC’s showing at the LGE in 2018, their having failed to win a single Neighbourhood Democratic Council (NDC).Notwithstanding all this, Nagamootoo is still insisting that the AFC has political influence. He pointed out that at the delegates conference itself, members of the party, both local and overseas, turned out in their numbers.“The AFC started out as a 10 per cent party, as a junior party in the coalition. Today the AFC is a significant partner of the coalition,” Nagamootoo told the media.“The AFC has under its wings strategic ministries. Look, they have been calling me rubberstamp and a person without power, and everything else, but tomorrow you’ll see. If I announce I am walking, (they) will celebrate, because they’ll think they got rid of (me).“So you’ll have the critics saying all manner of things. At one point, they’d say the AFC is being bullied in the coalition, and another time they’ll say the AFC is dead. So you don’t bully the dead.“We cannot work according to the agenda of the detractors; we have to work in real terms: that here is a party that is a member and part of a coalition,” he declared.Recycling leadersNagamootoo also responded to allegations that the AFC was just recycling its old leaders. For instance, on Saturday, Ramjattan was also elected unopposed as leader of his party, prior to being chosen as the PM candidate, riding on the endorsement of former leader Raphael Trotman.Both David Patterson, Public Infrastructure Minister and eventual AFC General Secretary, and Public Telecommunications Minister Cathy Hughes had previously declined nomination for the leadership of the party, paving the way for Ramjattan’s election.Trotman, the Natural Resources Minister, has in turn been endorsed as Chairman of the party by Ramjattan, and this was not opposed. Hughes was also re-elected to her post as Vice Chair.Nagamootoo is still insisting that the AFC is a party that believes in giving others in its membership a chance to lead. According to the PM, time is needed to “incubate” the party.Commenting on his own future with the party, he noted that he is not a “dinosaur.”“I believe (that) at some point in time, Nagamootoo will have to make way for someone. That, for me, is the perfect transition. I’m not here as a dinosaur, to stay or an old boat dropping my anchor. That is not my thought,” he said.last_img read more

Revealed! Premier League clubs ranked by their greatest ever homegrown player

first_img 20 9. Jordan Henderson – Sunderland – Henderson joined his hometown club at the age of eight and made his professional debut ten years later. His performances earned him the club’s Young Player of the Year two years running, earning the attention of Manchester United and Liverpool, joining and now captaining the latter, as well as being an England squad regular. 20 8. Sol Campbell – Tottenham Hotspur – This will upset a few Spurs fans who believe it should be Ledley King, but Campbell’s career was far better. The former England defender played 73 times in a decent era for the national team, as well as winning four FA Cups, a League Cup and two Premier League titles – including being an integral part of the 2004 Arsenal ‘invincibles’. 20 20 20 5. Steven Gerrard – Liverpool – After 18 years of service to Liverpool, Gerrard has gone down in history as one of the club’s greatest ever players. He joined the Reds academy as a nine-year-old and went on to become one of the players of his generation and club captain, but failed to lead Liverpool to that elusive Premier League title. He did, however, inspire the club to an incredible Champions League triumph, and scored in and won FA Cup, UEFA Cup and League Cup finals. Not bad, considering Liverpool were consistently inferior to the cream of the Premier League and Europe during his career. He emotionally left the Reds to join Cole at LA Galaxy but is expected to retire at the end of the season. 17. Saido Berahino – West Bromwich Albion – Berahino may have thrown his toys out of the pram recently but he could have a big future ahead of him after a great start to his professional career. 20 20 7. Ashley Cole – Arsenal – Cole started his youth career at the Gunners, made his debut aged 18 and was one of the ‘invincibles’. However he is hated by Arsenal fans who believe he betrayed the club by moving to Chelsea, where he won every trophy possible. Tony Adams doesn’t qualify for the Gunners as he made his debut outside of the Premier League era. Cole still plays in MLS for LA Galaxy. 3. Wayne Rooney – Everton – Rooney joined Everton aged nine and was prolific through the youth ranks, scoring 114 goals in 29 games for the under-10s and 11s. He famously scored his first goal against Arsenal to propel him onto the world scene before joining Manchester United and becoming one of the club’s greatest ever players; he is currently only four goals shot of becoming their highest ever goalscorer. He has also won virtually every major club trophy since leaving Everton but still says he loves the club, despite outraging a large proportion of Toffees fans when he left for Old Trafford in 2004. 20 15. Danny Ings – Bournemouth – Ings joined Bournemouth after he was released as a schoolboy by Southampton before making his debut aged only 17 for the Cherries. He scored seven times in 27 games before Burnley took notice and signed him for around £1m. The compensation Liverpool paid Burnley for him was an English record but he spent much of last season out injured. 20 4. John Terry – Chelsea – As a boy, Terry was part of West Ham’s youth system but he left for Chelsea at 14 at a time when youth players were not tied to contracts, hence why the Blues paid no compensation. Terry has spent 18 years at Stamford Bridge so far, playing 483 times, scoring 40 goals and winning the Premier League, FA Cup, League Cup, Champions League and Europa League as captain. 20 14. Stephen Ireland – Manchester City – Micah Richards misses out because City paid a fee for him as a youth player so Ireland, who joined the club at the age of 15, gets the nod. He played 138 times for City and was named the club’s Player of the Year for 2008/09. He is now at Stoke after a spell at Aston Villa but only made 16 appearances for the Potters last term. 20 12. Joe Allen – Swansea City – Welsh-speaker Allen joined Swansea at the age of nine, spending 13 years at the club before joining Liverpool. During that period he played for the Swans in League One, the Championship and the Premier League. He could find himself back in South Wales this summer with the Swans keen to bring him back from Liverpool after a fine Euro 2016. 20 10. Ashley Young – Watford – Young was initially turned away from Watford’s academy after an unsuccessful spell but improved and forced his way back to the club before making his debut as an 18-year-old. He scored 19 goals in 98 games and helped the club to the Premier League before moving on to Aston Villa and then Manchester United, where he has won the Premier League and the FA Cup. 20. Clayton Donaldson – Hull City (click the arrow, right, to see who is considered your club’s best homegrown player in the Premier League era, and which player is ranked number one) – N.B. Only players who made their senior football debut during the Premier League era (1992/93 season onwards), having represented the same club at youth level, are included. The club cannot have paid any fee or compensation to sign them (for example, the compensation paid by Arsenal to Barcelona for Cesc Fabregas rules him out of consideration for this homegrown ranking). And total career achievements are taken into account when deciding the ranking of each homegrown player, not just their achievements at the club where they emerged. At 20, Hull haven’t got a whole lot to shout about in regards to their academy graduates, so Donaldson is as good as it gets. The striker made his debut for Hull in 2002 after progressing through their youth team following his release from Bradford. He went on to help Brentford achieve League One promotion and scored 11 Championship goals for Birmingham City last season. Not bad, but only good enough for 20th place in our ranking of Premier League clubs’ top homegrown talent. 20 11. Andy King – Leicester City – Devon-born Welshman King has spent his whole career with the Foxes after being released as a Chelsea schoolboy at the age of 15. King is their highest scoring midfielder with 53 goals and won League One, the Championship and the Premier League with the club. 16. Jay Rodriguez – Burnley – Injury has hampered his Southampton career but the former Burnley man has scored 52 goals in his professional career, since making his debut for the Clarets in 2007 after working his way through their youth system. 1. Gareth Bale – Southampton – He may not have done too much for Southampton since becoming the Saints’ second youngest ever player when he made he debut aged 16, but he is one of the best players the Premier League has ever seen. His goals for Tottenham took them to the Champions League before he became the world’s most expensive player. At Real Madrid he has won two Champions Leagues in his three seasons as well as dragging Wales to Euro 2016 almost single-handedly, then on to a semi-final place. The British game hasn’t seen a player consistently make such an individual impact around the football world for a long time, and Bale is arguably the greatest ever footballer to leave the UK and play abroad. 20 19. Karl Henry – Stoke City – Henry made 120 appearances for the Potters after joining them as a youth player in 1998. He is currently at QPR but also played in the Premier League with Wolves after helping them achieve promotion. 6. Frank Lampard – West Ham United – Lampard is the best of a line of fantastic youth products to come out of West Ham, such as Rio Ferdinand, Joe Cole and Mark Noble. However, Lampard’s career after he left the Hammers edges him just past Ferdinand as he became one of the best midfielders in the world and won every trophy possible with Chelsea, before moving to Manchester City and then MLS with New York City. 20 13. Lee Cattermole – Middlesbrough – Cattermole was at Middlesbrough for seven years before making his senior debut at the age of 17 and bring named the club’s youngest ever captain in the same season. He has played a key role in a number of current club Sunderland’s successful Premier League survivals since leaving Boro. 20 20 20 20 Homegrown players who progress through the academy are a rare thing in the Premier League nowadays; with the embarrassing riches for clubs meaning foreign players are often a more enticing option.Jose Mourinho, in particular, has come under criticism of this, which led him to vehemently defend his record with youth players.But how have the current Premier League clubs done with bringing through academy graduates?Click the arrow above, right, as talkSPORT ranks the best academy graduates from each other the 20 top-flight clubs.N.B. Only players who made their senior football debut during the Premier League era (1992/93 season onwards), having represented the same club at youth level, are included. The club cannot have paid any fee or compensation to sign them (for example, the compensation paid by Arsenal to Barcelona for Cesc Fabregas rules him out of consideration for this homegrown ranking). 2. Paul Scholes – Manchester United – Like Adams with Arsenal, Ryan Giggs doesn’t qualify for our ranking as he made his debut outside of the Premier League era, so the honour goes to Scholes. He came through the youth system with the likes of David Beckham, Nicky Butt, Giggs and Gary and Phil Neville as the ‘Class of ’92’ and won 11 Premier League titles, two Champions Leagues and three FA Cups. And if that is not enough, Scholes has been lauded as the best midfielder of his generation by the likes of Zinedine Zidane, Andreas Iniesta and Xavi. 20 18. Clinton Morrison – Crystal Palace – Morrison scored 61 goals in 157 appearances for the Eagles in his first spell before returning to the club for a further 41 goals in 124 games. He went on to play for a host of other clubs throughout the Football League and now turns out for Redditch United in the Southern League Premier Division. last_img read more
