The graduating Lady Tamaraw averaged 15 points and 14.5 excellent receptions in the two wins FEU tallied this week.Pons’ efforts helped the Lady Tamaraws end their elimination round campaign as the No. 2 seed with a 10-4 record and go to the Final Four with a twice-to-beat edge over Ateneo.2.

GRFU lacks funding ahead of RANs 7s

first_imgPresident of the Guyana Rugby Football Union (GRFU), Peter Greene, has discussed the recently concluded Americas Rugby Challenge (ARC) 15s and the more-than-familiar position of the GRFU being short of funds as it seeks qualification for the Pan American Games, to be held in Peru 2019.The claim is being made that the GRFU had submitted its list to the National Sports Commission (NSC) for the 2018/2019 year; but in a recent meet with Director of Sport, Christopher Jones, the GRFU was nowhere listed among the names to receive funding from the Government.The GRFU seems to be under tremendous financial strain after recently paying a medical bill that amounted to over two million dollars. This strain had implications for the holistic unity of the team, which has both local and overseas-based players competing in the ARC.Among other members of the GRFU present on Friday at Olympic House were Guyana’s 7s team Captain Dwayne Schroeder and the 15s Captain Ryan Gonsalves.Gonsalves defended his team even after the horrendous defeats Guyana suffered at the hands of Colombia and Paraguay at the 2018 ARC. His contention is that in the game of rugby, sometimes you win, or come out on the other end.Gonsalves urges Guyanese fans to support the team even in their time of loss. The captain was confident of a better showing with the current selection, but he said things seemed not to have gone their way on this occasion.Last year the team had made it to the finals, but this year wasn’t their time, he reasoned. Nevertheless, according to the GRFU boss, the team will bounce back strong with assiduous training.However, if they do manage to show at the upcoming Rugby Americas North (RAN) Sevens Championships, it is expected that the side would give a good account of itself.Photo: Dwayne Schroederlast_img read more

Water softener swap for $2,000?

first_imgWhile many residents have already removed the softeners, chloride-discharge levels in the river are still higher than the cap set by the Regional Water Quality Control Board. If levels don’t decline, officials say, a desalination plant will be required, which could cost up to $350 million. The cost would be passed on to consumers through their sewer bills. To qualify for the rebate program, residents must currently be using water softeners that employ rock salt or potassium chloride. All units in the home must be removed, but only one rebate is allowed per household. For information on salt-free water conditioning choices, visit www.lacsd.org/chloride. SANTA CLARITA – Sanitation officials are offering residents up to $2,000 in rebates to remove any automatic water softeners from their homes – and they’ll even provide a plumber to do the work. In an effort to reduce salty waste in the Santa Clara River, the Santa Clarita Valley Sanitation District will give residents 100 percent of the value of their water softeners and will provide licensed plumbers to remove and dispose of the systems. Officials are asking residents to remove water softeners to avoid permanent increases in their sewer bills that could top off at $500 a household – quadruple the current rates – to finance a desalination system. Installing salt- or potassium-based water softeners has been illegal locally since March 2003, when it was determined they produced a salty waste that, when discharged into the Santa Clara River, damaged crops downstream. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

The second phase of Fort St. John’s downtown revitalization plan is underway

first_img“It’s a process which acts on City Council’s priorities to enhance the downtown core as the economic, social and cultural heart of the community,” a City Hall news release said. The report goes on to say the Downtown Revitalization Project is an integral part of the implementation of the 2011 Official Community Plan. The phase two will identify a range of development design concepts and priorities, for both public and private realms.- Advertisement – The preliminary preferred streetscape reconfiguration option includes the incorporation of the following changes within the core area of the downtown along 100th Street and 100th Avenue:Wider sidewalks to accommodate greater pedestrian activity and active commercial frontages including sidewalk cafe seating and displays.Reduced number of travel lanes along either arterial roadway from two lanes to one lane in each direction.Advertisement  Signalized pedestrian crossings at key intersections. Incorporation of sidewalk/patio cafes, small plaza’s and other pedestrian amenities where opportunities arise through new development; and enhancing the laneway network for access, circulation and loading. The above option includes reducing the existing four lane cross-section within the downtown area to a three lane cross-section, with the middle lane used as a two-way left turn lane (TWLTL Median) between major intersections and as a standard left turn only lane at key intersections. In addition, this centre lane may be used for temporary snow storage during the winter months. On-street parking is also a priority within the area and is expected to be maintained along all roadways. Finally, to promote pedestrian movements, safety intersection bulbs are proposed at all intersections along 100th Street and 100th Avenue All of these changes are expected to form the foundation for an implementation framework, which will allow the downtown area to play a key role in improving the quality and livability of the community as it undergoes anticipated growth over the coming years. The Phase One report, entitled “Downtown Planning – Baseline Inventory and Analysis” is available on the cities web page at www.fortstjohn.ca and can be found under the City Hall tab in the reports and plans section.Advertisement  On-street parking at the curb. A boulevard treatment with a continuous planting of street trees. Street furnishings such as benches, receptacles, pedestrian and lighting. Reduced pedestrian crossings at key intersections through the use of corner bulbs.Advertisementlast_img read more

Pogba can’t be happy at United – Deschamps

first_img0Shares0000France midfielder Paul Pogba has struggled to keep his starting spot at United in recent weeks © AFP / FRANCK FIFEPARIS, France, Mar 19 – France coach Didier Deschamps on Monday said that Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba “can’t be happy” with his current situation at Old Trafford.Pogba was an unused substitute in United’s FA Cup win over Brighton on Saturday, after being left out of the starting line-up when Jose Mourinho’s side were dumped out of the Champions League by Sevilla. The 25-year-old is with Deschamps’ France squad ahead of their World Cup warm-up friendlies against Colombia and Russia.“I haven’t discussed it will Paul, I’m sure I’ll know more about it,” said Deschamps.“But obviously this isn’t a situation he’s appreciating in relation to everything that he’s done. He can’t be happy with what he’s going through at the moment with his club.“I have a lot of talks with players to interact with them and understand their feelings.”Pogba has started just 24 matches for United this season, with manager Mourinho preferring Marouane Fellaini and youngster Scott McTominay to the former world’s most expensive player in recent weeks.Deschamps’ France, one of the favourites for the World Cup in Russia, face Colombia in Paris on Friday before travelling for a match in St Petersburg on March 27.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

first_img26 January 2006An African court to rule on cases of gross human rights violations on the continent is ready to start hearing cases, South African Foreign Minister Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma announced on Tuesday.Briefing the media after the closing session African Union heads of state summit in Khartoum, Sudan on Tuesday, Dlamini-Zuma said that while the location of the court was still to be finalised, the 11 judges had already been elected – including Bernard Ngoepe, South Africa’s Judge President of Transvaal.In addition to hearing cases of gross human rights violations such as genocide, the court will also have the power to render an opinion, at the request of a member state, on any legal matter relating to AU human rights instruments.“The court is ready to function,” Dlamini-Zuma said.The heads of state have requested member states to submit their comments on the “draft single legal instrument” by writing to the AU Commission, with the closing date for submissions 31 March.The draft single legal instrument is a document containing recommendations on the merger of the African court of human and people’s rights and the court of justice of the organisation.The union has also decided that the merger document should be submitted to a joint meeting of the People’s Rights Commission and legal experts from member states for finalisation.The final draft will be submitted and presented for review at the seventh ordinary session of the Executive Council and Assembly to take place in Bujumbura, Burundi in July.The election of the 11 judges must still be ratified by the Assembly of Heads of State after the final draft has been approved. Their term of office ranges from two to six years.Source: BuaNewslast_img read more
