‘Fake’ coaches, fixers undermine China’s football ambitions

GPL blamed for damaged equipment at NA hospital

first_imgThe Guyana Power and Light (GPL) has been blamed for the damage to several pieces of integral equipment at the New Amsterdam Hospital.This was conveyed to the Region Six (East Berbice-Corentyne) Regional Democratic Council (RDC) by head of the Regional Health Committee, Zamal Hussain.While not much information has been released on what equipment has been damaged, Guyana Times has confirmed that the New Amsterdam Hospital mortuary is out of operation.The Berbice Regional Health Services (BRHS) Department on Friday was reluctant to provide information on the extent of the damages.However, Hussain told the RDC that information was provided to the Regional Health Committee by the Director of BRHS, Jevaughn Stephens, which stated that important equipment had been damaged.“GPL was changing some transformer outside of the hospital and damaged a set of equipment in the hospital and right now they can’t be repaired and they will have to be replaced…,” the Councillor told the RDCHussain tried to get the RDC to support a move to take GPL to court for the damages but Regional Chairman David Armogan said it was the responsibility of the Public Utility Commission to do that.Meanwhile, sources close to the New Amsterdam Hospital have since said the power company has since replaced some of the damaged equipment, but officials remain tight-lipped on the matter.Hussain said the BRHS is currently looking to replace some equipment but could not provide any details.last_img read more

Man City on brink of title after sinking Spurs

first_imgChristian Eriksen had reduced the deficit to 2-1 in the first half, but City will be crowned champions if United lose to bottom of the table West Bromwich Albion on Sunday.If United draw the race would also effectively be over as City would be 15 points clear with a maximum of 15 available to Jose Mourinho’s team, who have a vastly inferior goal difference.A United victory would keep City’s champagne on ice for a few more days at least.Fourth-placed Tottenham were powerless to halt City’s revival and a first defeat in 14 league matches shouldn’t ruin their bid to qualify for the Champions League.After sweeping through most of the season in regal fashion, City had crashed down to earth with a bump over the last 10 days.Their limp Champions League quarter-final exit against Liverpool came either side of their failure to clinch the title last weekend, when United came from two goals down to beat them.City’s hellish week had Guardiola warning his players that “anything can happen” as he recalled other great sporting collapses from seemingly invincible positions.But it quickly became clear that run of three successive defeats wasn’t weighing on City.Leroy Sane met Sterling’s cross with a searing volley that cannoned off a post with Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris rooted to the spot.Unusually sluggish, Tottenham weren’t testing City and, with a swagger back in their stride, Guardiola’s men took the lead in the 22nd minute.Most of their goals this season have come with a flourish, but for once City took a more direct approach.– City back on track –Vincent Kompany’s long pass caught Tottenham defender Davinson Sanchez flat-footed and Jesus made him pay as he raced clear to fire past Lloris.City’s problems were suddenly a thing of the past and they went further ahead three minutes later.When Sterling weaved his way towards the Tottenham area, Lloris raced off his line to make a crude lunge that sent the City winger flying.While it was a clear foul, the contact appeared to be made just outside the area, yet, to Tottenham’s fury, Jonathan Moss awarded a penalty that Gundogan slotted home with ease.In the week Premier League clubs voted not to introduce the Video Assistant Referee system next season, this was a moment when the controversial replay technology would have been useful.Tottenham defender Ben Davies somehow escaped a red card for a horrible studs-up foul on Kompany, but the leaders still had a soft centre to their defence.Harry Kane was lampooned in some quarters for making what was perceived as a slightly greedy, if successful, appeal to have Tottenham’s second goal at Stoke last weekend credited to him instead of Eriksen.Kane at least returned the favour as Eriksen scored in the 42nd minute.Running onto Kane’s defence-splitting pass, Eriksen’s shot hit City’s Aymeric Laporte and deflected back onto the Tottenham midfielder on its way past Ederson.City regained control after half-time and should have been out of sight as Jesus scuffed badly wide and Sterling fared no better with a woeful close-range miss.But they moved within touching distance of the title in the 72nd minute.Lloris palmed Jesus’s shot to Sterling and the winger drilled into the roof of the net to leave City fans singing “we’re going to win the league”.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Gabriel Jesus and Raheem Sterling were on target as City moved to the cusp of the Premier League title© AFP Ben STANSALLLONDON, United Kingdom, Apr 14 – Manchester City are on the brink of winning the Premier League title after ending their troubled spell with a stylish 3-1 win over Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday.Pep Guardiola’s side extended their lead over second-placed Manchester United to 16 points thanks to goals from Gabriel Jesus, Ilkay Gundogan and Raheem Sterling at Wembley.last_img read more

2 Wilmington refineries hit by outage work on full return

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREChargers go winless in AFC West with season-ending loss in Kansas CityPreliminary results from a Los Angeles Department of Water and Power investigation found that power was cut early Wednesday to two high-voltage cables that feed the Harbor Area, DWP spokeswoman Darlene Battle said. Battle said workers were attempting to temporarily switch power sources to do some form of maintenance when the outage occurred. “They were de-energizing the Wilmington receiving station, which was feeding the harbor receiving station,” Battle said. “Something happened which caused the harbor station to lose power.” Electricity was restored to most residents and businesses within five minutes, she said, but outages at the refineries lasted longer: more than an hour at the Valero plant and 19 minutes at ConocoPhillips. Los Angeles City Councilwoman Janice Hahn, who represents the Harbor Area, said Friday that she will request a copy of the investigative report from the DWP. By Sandy Mazza STAFF WRITER On the third day that a power outage halted production at two Wilmington oil refineries, workers Friday continued the slow process of resuming the flow of crude oil. Officials said they expect to return to full production by Monday. “My brother’s power was out,” said Hahn, referring to former L.A. Mayor James Hahn. “My mother’s power was out, and my power was out. We all live in different areas of San Pedro. This was a big outage that affected homes, businesses and the refineries. “I want to know what went wrong and how we can prevent it in the future.” A plume of metallic dust escaped from a ConocoPhillips stack Thursday as workers tried to restart the fluid cracking catalyst unit. The metallic dust cloud posed no health threat, but the unit was immediately shut down again. Inspectors from South Coast Air Quality Management District oversaw the safe startup of that unit Friday. Officials at the Valero refinery said they expect to resume normal production today. “We’re losing about three to four days of production,” Valero spokesman Steve Faichney said. “Even if we’re back up online Saturday, it still takes 12 to 24 hours to be back online to be making full-spec material.” sandy.mazza@dailybreeze.com160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Arsenal transfer blow: Real Madrid exercise option to re-sign Alvaro Morata

first_img Alvaro Morata has been linked with Arsenal and Liverpool 1 Real Madrid have confirmed they will re-sign striker Alvaro Morata from Juventus this summer.Morata left Real for Juventus in 2014 but the Spanish giants have now decided to exercise a clause in his contract to bring the 23-year-old back to the Bernabeu.A club statement read: “Real Madrid have informed Juventus of their decision to recover the federative rights on the player Alvaro Morata, who will join up with the first team for pre-season training under the orders of Zinedine Zidane.”The fee for Morata has not been announced but reports in Spain suggest it is in the region of 30million euros (£23million).It remains to be seen if Morata will remain with the Champions League winners for next season or if he will be sold on for a profit, with a number of English clubs said to be interested.Juve general director Giuseppe Marotta had earlier revealed the striker, who has started both of Spain’s matches in Euro 2016 so far and scored twice in Friday’s 3-0 win against Turkey, would be heading back to his homeland.“Real Madrid will exercise their right to repurchase,” Marotta said in quotes posted on Marca.“We expect their offer in writing in the coming day, then we’ll see, but the number of possibilities that remain are few, and we will try to replace him with an equally-good player.”last_img read more

Diesel to be same price as petrol in upcoming budget?

first_imgA hike on the excise duty on diesel to match it with petrol prices could be discussed ahead of this year’s upcoming budget.The excise rate on petrol is currently 22% higher than that of diesel but the Minister for Transport, but Government Tax Strategy Group’s member, Shane Ross wants to change that.If the changes were to go through it could yield the exchequer more than €300M in the space of five years.

first_imgClannadClannad will release their long awaited new studio album ‘Nádúr’ on September 20th 2013 on the ARC Music label.The band mark the release of the album with an appearance on RTE’s Late Late Show tonight. ‘Nádúr’, the Gaelic word for Nature, is a fitting title.The album sees the family band – siblings Moya, Ciarán and Pól Brennan and their twin uncles Noel and Padraig Duggan – back together on record as the full original line-up for the first time since the 1989 album Past Present.Following Pól’s departure after that album, the band continued to release four highly successful albums – the last being the Grammy-winning album Landmarks in 1998.In 2011, Clannad were invited to perform a series of concerts at Dublin’s Christ Church Cathedral. With the intimate and historic nature of these shows, Pól was invited along to be part of the event. The concerts were a huge success and they were filmed and recorded for a DVD and CD which were released following airings on PBS in America.This event provided the catalyst for the five of them to start seriously considering a new album but before going into the recording studio they decided to embark on an extensive tour across North America and Europe. This time together on the road helped shape the ideas they had for Nádúr.“The fact that we’d toured quite extensively in the months leading up to recording really had an effect on the album,” says Moya Brennan.“Playing live across various countries gave us a really good indication of not just what we wanted from a new album but also what the audience out there wanted to hear. We feel this record touches on every aspect of our forty year career. Every track is different yet every track is pure Clannad”Nádúr contains 13 new tracks; including Vellum, Rhapsody na gCrann, TransAtlantic (co-written with Colm McCann), Brave Enough (with guest Duke Special), The Fishing Blues, Lámh ar Lámh, , The Song in your Heart, Setanta, and the traditional Cití na gCumann.Nádúr is a very natural progression to the Clannad sound, which since the 70s has been to fuse the traditional with the modern, the past and the future, with stunningly beautiful results. Colum McCann, states in his liner notes for the album, “Clannad – the family – have taken the local and made it universal once again. Is é seo nádúr dhúchasach …this is their inherent nature.”“It will always be so.”NEW ALBUM AND A LATE LATE SHOW APPEARANCE FOR CLANNAD was last modified: September 13th, 2013 by StephenShare 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:CalnnadLate Late Shownew albumlast_img read more


first_imgAfter last week’s victory over league leaders Longford Town at the City Calling Stadium, Finn Harps can climb to second place on Friday if they can beat Mervue United at Finn Park (kick-off 8.00pm).The 3-2 win in Longford was the second time that Harps have beaten the First Division favourites this season – the only two defeats that Longford have recorded in 2013.Harps boss Peter Hutton was obviously delighted with his side on Saturday. “I thought we were fully deserving of our victory,” said Hutton, “and the performance by every player was pleasing. As a group we knew it would be difficult but we went about our job with a great focus and determination and thankfully recorded our first away win of the season.”Hutton though was disappointed that his team conceded two goals, especially as they came so late in the game.“We were really disappointed as not only was it poor defensively but it took the gloss of what was a fantastic win. We allowed ourselves to sit back far too deep and invited Longford on and with them being such a big side they were always going to get chances. We have to learn from that scenario and be prepared for a similar situation if and when it arises, although if we were 3-0 up with two minutes to go every week I’d certainly be a happy manager.”On Friday, Harps welcome a Mervue United team to Finn Park who sit just one point ahead of them on the league table. “It will be another difficult encounter. Mervue are playing very well of late and have made a great start to the season so confidence will be high in their camp. However, we too have had some decent performances of late and the win last week will prove to the players that they are more than a match for anyone in this league when they apply themselves properly. We will look forward to the game as Mervue also like to attack teams given the players within their squad and that suits us.”Harps have a few injuries worries ahead of Friday’s game, especially in the centre of defence.“Keith Cowan is struggling with an ankle injury he sustained during the Longford game and had to leave the ground on crutches but we’ll assess him over the next few days but at the moment he’d be doubtful,” said Hutton. “Tommy McMonagle is another struggling; he came back and played against Longford but had to retire early as he aggravated his foot injury again. Paul McVeigh hasn’t trained all week either with a knee complaint and would be doubtful.”Going on the previous six visits of Mervue to Finn Park, goals should be guaranteed on Friday – there have been 25 in the last half a dozen games in Ballybofey, with 12 in the two games here last season.The earlier season meeting ended in a 2-2 draw between the sides at Fahy’s Field. Ryan Mannering and Brendan Lavelle gave the home side a 2-0 half-time lead, but Harps came back in the second half through goals from Thomas McMonagle and a Kevin McHugh penalty. Mannering had the chance to win the game for Mervue twenty minutes from time when they were awarded their own penalty, but his spot-kick was well saved by Ciaran Gallagher. After Friday’s game, Harps are back in action again three days later when they host Derry City in the EA Sports Cup 2nd Round on Monday evening (kick-off 7.45pm).~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~TEAM NEWSSuspended: None Doubtful: Tommy McMonagle (foot), Keith Cowan (ankle), Paul McVeigh (knee).Injured: None.Form Guide (last six league games)Finn Harps: D-L-W-L-D-W (8 pts)Longford Town: D-L-W-D-D-W (9 pts)~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Last six home games against Mervue United05-Jun-09 – Finn Harps 2-0 Mervue United (First Division)07-May-10 – Finn Harps 2-3 Mervue United (First Division)30-Oct-10 – Finn Harps 4-0 Mervue United (First Division)06-Aug-11 – Finn Harps 2-0 Mervue United (First Division)10-Mar-12 – Finn Harps 4-3 Mervue United (First Division)07-Jul-12 – Finn Harps 3-2 Mervue United (First Division)~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Finn Harps Goalscorers 2013Kevin McHugh – 6Sean McCarron – 5Thomas McMonagle – 2Thomas McBride – 1 (in League Cup)Matt Harkin – 1 (in League Cup)James Doherty – 1 (in League Cup)Marc Brolly – 1 (in League Cup)~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Finn Harps Results 2013 (Harps goalscorers in brackets)11-May-2013 – AL – Longford Town 2-3 Finn Harps (McCarron, McHugh, McDonagh og.)04-May-2013 – AL – Cobh Ramblers 2-2 Finn Harps (McHugh, McCarron)26-Apr-2013 – AL – Finn Harps 0-1 Waterford United19-Apr-2013 – AL – Finn Harps 1-0 Salthill Devon (McMonagle)12-Apr-2013 – AL – Athlone Town 1-0 Finn Harps05-Apr-2013 – AL – Finn Harps 0-0 Wexford Youths29-Mar-2013 – AL – Mervue United 2-2 Finn Harps (McMonagle, McHugh)23-Mar-2013 – AL – Finn Harps 1-0 Longford Town (McHugh)15-Mar-2013 – AL – Finn Harps 4-1 Cobh Ramblers (McCarron 2, McHugh 2)08-Mar-2013 – AL – Waterford United 1-1 Finn Harps (McCarron)03-Mar-2013 – LC – Mayo League 1-4 Finn Harps (Harkin, Doherty, Brolly, McBride)CONFIDENT HARPS HOPING TO GO SECOND WITH WIN OVER MERVUE was last modified: May 16th, 2013 by StephenShare 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:finn harpsMERVUE UTDlast_img read more
