Voice of experience

first_imgThat great survivor Ken Clarke, who turned 70 this month, was on characteristically ebullient form at the Law Society’s summer party at the Tate Modern. And yes, it’s official – like all jazz afficionados, the new justice secretary and erstwhile chancellor really does wear brown suede shoes. Like many people in the late-autumn of their careers, Clarke reflected, he’s a couple of rungs lower on the ladder than he used to be and his bosses were once other people’s office boys. But he’s not letting this get him down – the former barrister QC is more concerned about alienating all the chums he’s made in the law when he gets down to the hairy business of slashing the MoJ’s budget by – if you believe the reports – as much as 40%. We are sure that where he does cut, he’ll do it charmingly – something that one would never have expected of his predecessor Jack Straw. Now is also an opportune moment to make what Obiter promises will be his last allusion to the World Cup. One of Ken Clarke’s proud boasts – who knows, perhaps his proudest – is that he was present at Wembley on that far-off day 44 years ago when a ‘wag’ was a comedian and England were crowned world champions. Clarke, not long down from Cambridge, was seated immediately behind the ‘Russian linesman’ who controversially awarded Geoff Hurst the goal that did or didn’t cross the line (it didn’t, admit it) and turned the match in England’s favour. Clarke claims to have influenced Tofik Bakhramov (who was actually from Azerbaijan) by bellowing ‘goal!’ in the linesman’s right lughole from a distance of not more than a few yards. Ho hum – Frank Lampard and England could have done with Mr Clarke’s powers of projection in Bloemfontein.last_img read more

New Political Party Launched in Guyana

first_imgGEORGETOWN, Guyana, CMC – A new political party, promising campaign financing legislation, was launched in Guyana as the country prepares to hold fresh regional and general election on March 2 next year.The Citizenship Initiative (CI), which has also indicated that it has no intention of joining with either the People’s National Congress (PNC), which is part of the ruling coalition administration and the main opposition People’s Progressive Party Civic (PPP/C), said it intends to change the way issues related to politics are addressed in Guyana.“Our key platform has to do with leverage in parliament. Now to answer the question of coalition, let me say very explicitly now: Our message is that this adversarial politics by the two giants continues to be the primary burden for the development of Guyana.“Coalition is not an option…You can’t say that you have goals that you want to attain, you change the status quo and then join the status quo,” said the party’s executive member, Ruel Johnson.Apart from Johnson, who is the government’s cultural advisor, the other founding members are web developer Shaz Ally, the managing director of a private school, Alphonso de Armas, educator Ronda Ann Lam and business executive, Yonnick David.Ally said Guyana has been looking to find its way since it gained independence in 1966 but has instead found itself marred by ethnic divisions, limited opportunities and questionable leadership since independence.He said Guyana has put power in the arms of two major political parties who have been in control for over fifty years while many of the country’s struggles and problems remain.He said the new party is focused on chartering a better course for all of Guyana and its members would be representative of the entire society.Johnson said Citizenship Initiative, whose symbol is a scale balancing two water lilies, will contest the upcoming elections and if successful, would be pushing for constitutional reform as a priority.He said the party is also focused now on naming Presidential and Prime Ministerial candidates and will address that issue as it rolls out its plans and programmes.President David Granger named the election date after Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo was successful in tabling a motion of no confidence in his coalition administration last December.The PPP had been pushing for an early poll, but the head of state said he would have only announced the date when the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM0 had indicated to him that it was prepared to conduct the elections.last_img read more

Murder trial of Lesotho PM’s wife to start on February 18

first_imgLesotho PM’s wife Maesaiah Thabane faces murder charge Maesaiah Thabane, wife of Lesotho’s Prime Minister Thomas Thabane, appears in court charged with murdering his previous wife two days before he took office in 2017, in Maseru, Lesotho, February 5, 2020. REUTERS/Marafeale MohloboliThe wife of Lesotho’s Prime Minister Thomas Thabane, Maesaiah, is set to go on trial on February 18 after she was charged with the murder of the Prime Minister’s former wife, Lipolelo, a magistrate said on Wednesday.The killing occurred two days before the Prime Minister’s inauguration for a second term, and two years after a court ruled that the deceased, Lipolelo, was the lawful first lady and entitled to benefits.Maesaiah was also charged for the attempted murder of Thato Sibolla, a friend of Lipolelo who was wounded at the scene.Maesaiah arrived in court amidst heavy security and faced the magistrate before being taken into custody, according to an account by a Reuters reporter. The Prime Minister did not attend the hearing.Maesaiah was subsequently released on a 1,000 maloti ($67) bail.According to the charge sheet, Maesaiah “did unlawfully and with intent to kill fire a gunshot at one Thabane Lipolelo and inflicted on her gunshot wounds”.A warrant of arrest was issued against Maesaiah on January 10 after she did not present herself for questioning in connection with the murder and fled to neighbouring South Africa. She returned to the country on Tuesday afternoon and surrendered to the police in the capital Maseru.Thabane and Maesaiah got married two months after Lipolelo was shot dead by an unknown assailant near her home in Maseru two days before he was due to be sworn in. Thabane and Lipolelo were in the middle of a bitter divorce and her killing was suspected to be a political assassination.Thabane also announced last month that he planned to step down after senior members of the ruling party accused him of frustrating investigations into the murder. He, however, did not specify when he would resign.Two weeks ago police questioned Thabane over the alleged use of his mobile phone to communicate with whoever was at the scene of the killing.Related Oscar Pistorius Murder Trialcenter_img Dewani Trial: British Businessman Denies Plot to Murder Wife Annlast_img read more

Photograph shot by 365 MMPDominica’s 2012 Road March King, Murphy ‘Sye’ Jno. Jules has expressed his disappointment with the exclusion of calypso at this year’s World Creole Music Festival.Sye was part of the Fanatik Band who provided musical accompaniment and vocals for two regional artistes; Fredo of the Seventeen Plus of the USVI and Onyan from Antigua, at the festival on Saturday night.He told the press at a post performance press conference that he is very disappointed that calypso did not form part of the lineup.“It hurts my heart this year to see that our first lineup came out and I was on as Road March King of Dominica, and King Dice as four-time calypso King, and then the second lineup came out with our names out”.“We would like to see calypso on the World Creole Music Festival line up every year”.He noted that the World Creole Music Festival stage should be used as one of the mediums to promote Dominica’s local calypsonians and music.“That’s our music, that’s our culture; it’s about promoting our culture”.“The World Creole Music Festival is not just about having visitors here, but when they come they have an opportunity to see us on the world stage, even if it’s a local stage but in itself it is a world stage,” he explained.He acknowledged that the local bands have received exposure and promotion at the festival and therefore calypso should receive the same.“We have other artistes coming here so we need to promote our local artistes not only the bands but our calypso as well”.Dominica Vibes Newslast_img read more

Practice is On for Tarpon Hoops

first_imgBy LARRY GAGESpecial to the PRESSCole Pinkerton and Jason Lowe stretch during practice. Photo by Larry Gage.Practice has started for the Port Isabel High basketball team and optimism is the order of the day. The Press found head coach Mike Hazelton and the players in Tarpon Gym this week working on their shots and getting in basketball shape.“The kids have been doing a good job,” Hazelton said Monday. “We’re trying to get them in basketball shape, and that’s where we’re at for the first few days.”Actually, these guys are ahead of the game when it comes to general conditioning, because they’ve been playing the game and working out in general for months. It only became official last week.“Those games are not always as intense as the high school games, because you’re playing two, three, four games in one day,” Hazelton told the Press. He referred to the summer league games and tournaments most of the players have been playing since last spring. “You only have so much energy you can expend. So, for the most part, you’re trying to condition them for one game a day.”The change in personnel is a constant, year-to-year process: players graduate out of the program, and new ones come up from the freshmen and JV ranks.“We’ve got some kids coming up from JV. I believe they lost three games last year. It’s next man up–that’s just the nature of high school basketball.”“It’s a lot of conditioning and running,” third year Varsity veteran Cole Pinkerton said. “We need to get in shape. We’re just working on the little things right now that are important. We’re not getting too much into plays or anything.”“We’ll start mixing in some different sets and plays as we go along this week,” Hazelton said.“I was ready,” Pinkerton said. “Some people weren’t, and you can tell when they’re gasping for air and asking for water every five minutes. It just takes a little time. Some of the football kids came in today and we’ll see if they’re in condition. The football guys bring a lot of physicality.”“It’s going great,” senior guard Dennis Lozano told the Press. “It’s going to be a different offense this year.”Daniel Rinza talked about team chemistry. “We’re all just getting ready to start the season. I think we started getting the team chemistry going way before our practices started. Our chemistry’s there already. The San Benito tournament gave us a big shot of confidence.”Scrimmages start next week, and the first game will be against Brownsville Jubilee at Tarpon Gym.

Western youngsters benefit from Real Madrid clinic

first_imgApproximately 50 children, ages nine to 14 years from the parishes of St James, Hanover, and Westmoreland were the beneficiaries of a two-day football clinic which was held in Negril by the Real Madrid Foundation and the Sandals Foundation at the weekend.The youngsters, drawn from schools across the parishes, were taken through physical, mental and technical drills under the guidance of world-famous coach, Carlos Gustavo Albert Garcia, of the Real Madrid Foundation in Spain. Garcia has been with the Spanish giants, Real Madrid, for 10 years and working with the Real Madrid Foundation for the last four years. Selection criteria “The selection of the kids was based on not just their abilities, but also their enthusiasm and so forth, and it gives them an opportunity to learn really from the world’s best at the Real Madrid Foundation academy,” Liz Kaiser, director of partnership marketing at Unique Vacations, said.“The partnership between the Sandals Foundation and the Real Madrid Foundation started in the summer of 2018. It was a year in the making. It is important for us not only to bring this opportunity for international guests staying at our resorts but equally important to be able to involve local children because both the Sandals and Real Madrid foundations align so well, and share the same common goals of empowering youth through sports.”Jervene Simpson, regional public relations manager at Sandals Negril Beach Resort and Spa, in outlining the areas from which the youngsters were drawn, said special emphasis was placed on getting participants from all over the region.“We have a number of students from Cove, Rhodes Hall, Green Island, Dias, Cacoon, and then we go into Hopewell, some [ were]sent by the coaches and institutions from St James, then from Westmoreland all over, Orange Hill, Savanna-la-Mar, Llandilo, Negril, so we have pretty much covered the three parishes,” Simpson said. The two-day clinic, which was the first to be staged under the partnership between the Sandals and Real Madrid foundations, was done complimentary for all the participants.“We are going to take it (the clinic) to Turks and Caicos in January, where other resorts are located, and then we will also have two international clinics for guests, who are paying,” Kaiser explained.“This one is open to the children complimentary. For us, it is really an opportunity to not only show them physically but also mentally, skills like confidence, teamwork and perseverance, and those skills will guide them through life.”last_img read more

French Open Recap (Women): Serena Williams Pulls Out Of Tournament As Top Two Seeds…

first_img23-time Grand Slam champion Serena Williams has pulled out of the ongoing French Open as a result of a right pectoral muscle injury.Serena Williams, 36, was initially expected to face rival Maria Sharapova of Russia in the fourth round.While speaking about the reason behind her withdrawal, Serena Williams said: “I’ve had issues with the right pectoral muscle to the point where I can’t serve.”“I’ll have a scan. I won’t know about Wimbledon until I get the results.” she added.According to the three-time French Open champion, she noticed the problem during her third-round win over German 11th seed Julia Gorges on Saturday.The mother of one also talked about how she tried to manage the injury during her doubles match with sister Venus on Sunday.She said: “I tried lots of taping and support to see how it felt in match circumstances.”“It is hard to play when I can’t physically serve. I’ve never had this injury before, I’ve never felt it in my life and it was so painful.“I don’t know how to manage it.” she concluded.Her opponent Sharapova was kind enough to send a message of recovery to Serena Williams as she said: “I wish her a speedy recovery and hope she returns to the tour soon.”Two-time winner Sharapova will now play 2016 champion Garbine Muguruza for a place in the last four as the Spaniard was 2-0 up in the opening set of her match against Lesia Tsurenko before the Ukrainian retired hurt.The top two seeds namely Simona Halep and Caroline Wozniacki posted different results from their last 16 games.World number one Halep defeated Elise Mertens of Belgium 6-2 6-1 to ensure that the Romanian will now face 12th seeded German Angelique Kerber for a place in the semifinal.Kerber saw off home favourite Caroline Garcia 6-2 6-3 in her last 16 clash.Second seed Caroline Wozniacki has, however, crashed out after she was beaten by Daria Kasatkina of Russia.The Dane suffered a 7-6 (7-5) 6-3 defeat to 14th seed Kasatkina who will now face 10th seeded American Sloane Stephens for the right to secure a last four spot.Relatedlast_img read more
