CARICOM heads to meet in Suriname; restructuring and reform high on agenda

first_imgNewsRegional CARICOM heads to meet in Suriname; restructuring and reform high on agenda by: – March 7, 2012 Share Share Sharing is caring! GEORGETOWN, Guyana — When Caribbean Community (CARICOM) heads of government meet in Suriname next week Thursday and Friday for their 23rd Inter-Sessional Conference, it is to discuss a crisp agenda, which has among its priorities, the Landell Mills review of the CARICOM Secretariat and the strategic direction of the 15-member Community. CARICOM logo. Photo credit: nevisblog.comThe report titled “Turning around CARICOM: Proposals to restructure the Secretariat”, is the result of a review commissioned by heads of government at their thirty-first regular meeting held in Jamaica in July 2010. Under the chairmanship of Suriname’s President Desi Bouterse, the conference of heads of government will discuss recommendations contained in the report to restructure its principal administrative body, the Guyana-based Secretariat. To facilitate a robust discussion, the Community Council of Ministers will meet on Wednesday prior to the heads of government conference to discuss the report in detail and make recommendations for the conference to consider. The restructuring of the CARICOM Secretariat will be done within the context of the Community’s vision, strategic direction and priorities. The ongoing discussions on this issue began at last year’s inter-sessional meeting in Grenada and continued at a special retreat last May in Guyana, as well as at the 32nd regular meeting of the conference in St Kitts and Nevis last July. A special guest at the meeting will be the president of Chile, Sebastián Piñera Echenique. Piñera is the pro tempore president of the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC) and Chile will also be the host of the next summit of the European Union and Latin American and Caribbean (EU-LAC) countries scheduled for early 2013. In light of the persistent high rates of crime and violence plaguing several member states within the community, heads of government will again examine developments related to the regional crime and security agenda in an effort to arrest this trend. The thorny issue of the governance of cricket at the national, regional and international levels is another agenda item. Discussions will be conducted against the backdrop of a continuous public debate on the matter. Issues of sustainable development, including climate change, joint economic ventures for the establishment of CARICOM enterprises; regional air transportation and matters affecting Community relations, particularly CARICOM support to Haiti will also occupy the attention of the Community’s leaders.Caribbean News Nowcenter_img Share 7 Views   no discussions Tweetlast_img read more

first_imgA.J. Ward earned $2,018 for his career fourth IMCA Modified checkers at Tri-City Motor Speedway’s Greased Pit special Friday night. (Photo by Amanda Scott)By Roger WilliamsAUBURN, Mich. (June 15) – The first race in the new dirt track era of Tri-City Motor Speedway took place in mid-June back in 2011.Each year, Tri-City commemorates the occasion with the annual Greased Pig special for the IMCA Modifieds. On Friday night, A.J. Ward won the event for the fourth time and earned $2,018.Chris Cohoon started on the pole and led the field to green flag but his night ended early because of mechanical problems. With Cohoon out, the lead was handed to Matt Szecsodi, who took ad­vantage of a long green flag run and began to pull away from the field.However, with 31 laps down and 10 to go, a caution bunched up the field and put the ninth start­ing Ward and defending track champion Kody Johnson on Szecsodi’s rear bumper.Ward fought Szecsodi using the bottom groove as the two tussled over the final seven circuits. The two-time defending Dirt Works Eastern Region champion, already on the Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational ballot, was finally able to clear Szecsodi to take his career fourth Greased Pig victory and collect the large payday.Szecsodi settled for the runner-up finish. Johnson, John McClure and the 17th starting Chance Allen cleared the top five spots.The Greased Pig was contested by 34 drivers.Feature results – 1. A.J. Ward; 2. Matt Szecsodi; 3. Kody Johnson; 4. John McClure; 5. Chance Allen; 6. Chad Wernette; 7. Craig Vance; 8. Chad May; 9. Shannon Fisk; 10. Toby Steele; 11. Gary VanderMark; 12. Gavin Hunyady; 13. Don Sautter; 14. Preston DeShano; 15.

Rohr to Include Best U-20 Player in Eagles Squad for Seychelles,…

first_img“I watched the team’s training session and I see they are good. They are ambitious and I will be in Niger Republic to see some of the matches.“I have decided to pick one or two of them, the best ones, to give them a chance when we regroup for the matches against Seychelles and Egypt in March,” Rohr, who watched the Flying Eagles train on Tuesday, told reporters in Abuja.The Super Eagles, already qualified for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations, host the Pirates of Seychelles at the Stephen Keshi Stadium, Asaba on 23rd March, in a mere academic session, and then welcome the Pharaohs of Egypt in a much-anticipated friendly at the same venue three days later.Meanwhile, the General Secretary of Nigeria Football Federation, Dr. Mohammed Sanusi, has charged the Flying Eagles to take to heart the virtues of discipline, dedication and commitment as they head to Niger Republic.Speaking during a visit to the team’s training session in Abuja yesterday, Sanusi harped on the importance of imbibing enviable character traits that will take the players to the top faster than even their abilities on the field of play.“Discipline and character are values that you must not take for granted. You may be the best player in the world, but without discipline and character, you would sooner find yourself on the scrap heap. Stories of exceptional talents who wasted away before they could climb successfully to the top, as a result of indiscipline, abound. I pray that your story will not be like any of those.“You are bearing the high expectations of 180 million Nigerians on your lean shoulders, but you cannot afford to fail. You are Ambassadors of our great country and good character and discipline are key in everything you do in Niger Republic and thereafter.”Sanusi assured the players that the federation would do everything necessary to support the team to achieve its targets of World Cup ticket and AFCON title at the continental house-party.“The NFF would do everything it can to support you from every front, and I can assure you that your qualification bonus would be ready for you once you earn the FIFA World Cup ticket.“Football is the biggest unifying factor globally. Please have that in your mind as you go that the whole country is behind you and will be backing you to conquer.”Seven-time champions Nigeria will confront host nation Niger Republic, South Africa and Burundi in Group A of the eight-nation tournament, taking place between February 2nd and 17th February.The Flying Eagles will take on Burundi in their first match of the championship in Niamey on Saturday night.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Rohr in Flying Eagles Camp Olawale Ajimotokan in AbujaAs the Flying Eagles’ delegation to the 21st Africa Under-20 Cup of Nations depart for Niamey, Niger Republic today, Super Eagles’ Technical Adviser, Gernot Rohr, has challenged the players to give their very best and qualify for the FIFA Under-20 World Cup.The Franco-German gaffer has also pledged that he would be at the competition venue to pick the best Nigerian player and include him in the senior squad.last_img read more

Izzo and Michigan State are legendary

first_imgAfter two weeks of competition, we finally have a Final Four. Of course, the one year I didn’t pick No. 1 seeds to be the majority in my Final Four, three of the four remaining are a No. 1 seed. Michigan State is a seven seed, but that can hardly be considered a surprise. The Spartans seem to always come into the tournament underrated and manage to constantly upset higher-seeded teams thanks to the coaching of Tom Izzo.It’s easy to pick teams like John Calipari’s Kentucky or Mike Krzyzewski’s Duke. They are constantly seeded at the top of every tournament alongside Rick Pitino and Louisville.I know better than to bet against Michigan State, but even I had them losing to Louisville in the Elite Eight. Shame on me and the rest of us for overlooking one of the best coaches in college basketball.Michigan State’s return to the Final Four ends a five year Final Four absence, the longest of Izzo’s 20-year tenure as Michigan State head coach. He has reached the Final Four seven times and is the only coach to reach three Final Fours as a five seed or lower. Despite his storied career, his Spartans seem to be overlooked every year.His stats as Michigan State head coach make it hard to argue against him. As the Detroit Free Press has compiled, in 20 years Tom Izzo has won 494 games, 233 Big Ten games, seven Big Ten championships, four Big Ten tournaments, and has reached 13 Sweet Sixteens, 7 Final Fours and won a national championship in 2000.His seven Final Fours outnumber his failed Sweet Sixteen appearances at five. In other words, Izzo has only ever failed to reach the Sweet Sixteen five times in 20 years with Michigan State.Even when it seems like his team is out of the game, he somehow coaches them back to a victory. The Spartans have been behind at the half in five Elite Eight games under Izzo and they’ve come back to win four. One of those games was Sunday’s overtime win over Louisville to advance to the Final Four. The Cardinals had won the last 94 games when leading at halftime by six or more points, but the Spartans snapped that streak.In this year’s tournament, Kentucky is the overwhelming favorite and I haven’t talked to a single person who didn’t pick them to win it all in their bracket. There are two other No. 1 seeds left, Wisconsin and Duke, and the Spartans will have to get past Coach K and the Blue Devils to reach the finals.I admit that I picked Kentucky to win it all, but now that my bracket has no chance of winning, I’m jumping on the Izzo bandwagon. I always root for the underdog, but given everything I’ve just mentioned, it’s hard to classify Michigan State as an underdog. Nevertheless, they entered the tournament as a No. 7 seed this year and are left among a trio of top seeds.Duke had to battle to get past Gonzaga and reach the Final Four, and Michigan State is coming off a thrilling overtime win over Louisville. If the Spartans are able to get past Duke, they’ll likely have to face Kentucky. The Wildcats barely bested the Irish to reach the Final Four and finally showed their vulnerable side.I think it’s time we stop betting against Izzo and the Spartans.Regan Estes is a sophomore majoring in public relations and Spanish.

Syracuse’s 8 goals in 1st 8 minutes fueled by last season’s perils in 18-6 win over Connecticut

first_img Comments Gary Gait joked about Syracuse’s first half against Connecticut last year. The Orange couldn’t win a draw — starting 0-for-8. They couldn’t find clearing areas and their defense was faulty against an inferior opponent.SU trailed by two goals at one point and entered the break up 9-8. Eventually, Syracuse broke open the score and won by 12 goals, but 2018’s first 30 minutes of play, a year in which the Orange had their first losing season in program history, stuck with Gait on Friday.“You know that first half really represented what our year was,” Gait said. “So we were like let’s demonstrate how we want to be now.”For Gait, SU’s first half against UConn in 2018 was a symbol of the past — inconsistent play, blown leads and little success. This opener would be a symbol of the future. Eight minutes into 2019’s matchup, No. 13 Syracuse (1-0) had the same amount of goals as game time over Connecticut (0-1). The Orange’s early explosion started with success in the draw and quantified with a fast-paced offense running through their midfield. It set the tone for the eventual 18-6 blowout over and showcased the potential of what SU’s balanced attack can become this season.“You can definitely tell the difference this year,” midfielder Sam Swart said. “It’s a different level of energy. Once we got in our groove, we just didn’t stop.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSyracuse wanted to take over quick, but the Huskies opening draw forced them to wait. As a turnover ensued on their opening possession, the Orange pushed downfield as Connecticut’s defenders jogged lightly near the opposing goal. Swart pushed the ball up against no navy blue jerseys until 15 yards from the net. SU’s speed gave it numbers and the start of its offensive dominance from senior Natalie Wallon. Emily Hawryschuk, who was SU’s leading scorer last season with 53 goals, won the ensuing draw and added her first goal of the season 18 seconds later to make it 2-0. “We haven’t played in forever,” Hawryschuk said. “The jitters went away.”When the Huskies touched the ball, they were mobbed at midfield. On one possession, a Connecticut attack had four bodies around her at midfield and was forced to throw it away — in the direction of an Orange stick.Syracuse controlled three-straight draws by three different players: Ella Simkins, Julie Cross and Swart. Simkins threw the ball to Cara Quimby who didn’t hesitate to give a cutting Vanessa Costantino an opportunity close to the net, one she capitalized on.When Cross stepped in, Hawryschuk was throwing her stick to the ground 30 seconds after faking twice and causing UConn’s Grace Beshlian to guess her shot incorrectly. Freshman Sarah Cooper swiped UConn and pushed toward a running Hawryschuk who netted her third goal.On one possession in the midst of the run, Hawryschuk stood alone and didn’t move. The closest defender was further than 10 yards from her despite her hat track within the first five minutes. Julie Ozimek, who was supposed to be pressed on her, shuffled up and down, trying to maintain the multitude of weapons the Orange had. But she forgot the most effective one on Friday. The junior caught the pass as three defenders tried to converge on her and shuffled the ball to Swart who caught the ball in stride and scored on a fake to make it 6-0.“We’re really focused on playing unselfish this year,” Gait said. “It really makes easy scores.”The second part of the run formed through defense — two turnovers and a free position save from goalkeeper Asa Goldstock. Quimby got in on the action after Swart’s goal and Hawryschuk capped the eight-goal stretch when she sliced her fourth into the net.The full-speed Orange were cooled off by three turnovers in four possessions and Connecticut’s brief sign of life, a Sydney Watson free position fake that snuck past Goldstock. It would be their only goal until 19:38 left in the game.Swart trended to the right side of the net after a scoreless 10 minute stretch and pulled a shot deep into the net. After an SU draw, Meaghan Tyrrell did the same in one of its slowest possession of the game — 44 seconds were still left on the shot clock.“I thought that set the tempo for the game,” Gait said. “Really allowed us to play everybody.”Syracuse put the breaks on after it hit double-digits. Possessions got longer. Only two starters were present in the final five minutes of the half. Syracuse entered the break up 12-1, and just needed 30 minutes to tick down.The goals still came early in the second half, Syracuse up 15-1 at one point. Connecticut threw together a three-goal run of itself against SU’s backups early in the second half, but the outcome was clear after the first eight minutes.Friday was a tune-up for Syracuse, who have now defeated Connecticut 21-straight times. If their dominance, when at full speed this year compared to last, are any indication of an identity, Gait believes the Orange’s season will be a lot different. “That first eight minutes was some great Syracuse lacrosse,” Gait said. “… We started well so we think this team is going to be different.” Facebook Twitter Google+center_img Published on February 8, 2019 at 4:58 pm Contact KJ: kjedelma@syr.edu | @KJEdelmanlast_img read more

Plaudits for Eunisell over Support for Rivers Utd

first_imgIyaye, while pouring encomiums on Eunisell said: “Eunisell has done immensely well for Rivers United, looking at the huge funds they have invested in the team.“I must be honest, not many clubs in this country have got this kind of luxury.
