We speak here of the areas like Silver Lake, Yam Piece, Gutter and Pound. May I say to you parents that your geological location, your family background or your socio-economic status has nothing to do with the achievement of your children,” he said.He said every child can learn and every child can do well.“Politics is the involvement of parents and the wider community to ensure success for the children.

Sun-seekers spark emergency incident at UK beach

first_imgBritain has been hard hit by the global coronavirus outbreak, recording the worst death toll in Europe so far. BOURNEMOUTH, United Kingdom – An English seaside resort declared a major incident Thursday after thousands of people flocked to the beach on the hottest day of the year so far, despite the threat of coronavirus. Their arrival resulted in gridlock on the roads, widespread illegal parking, piles of rubbish as well as anti-social behavior including drunken fights, they said. Temperatures rose to a record 33.3 degrees Celsius (91.94 degrees Fahrenheit) at Heathrow Airport in west London, a day after highs of 32.6 C saw huge crowds flock to the coast. Visiting the beach is permitted after a nationwide coronavirus lockdown was eased, but people are still being urged to avoid large crowds, and pubs and restaurants do not open until July 4. Beachgoers enjoy the sunshine as they sunbathe and play in the sea on Bournemouth beach in Bournemouth, southern England, on June 25, 2020.AFP Council leader Vikki Slade said Bournemouth was not ready to receive so many visitors and urged people to stay away. But the local authorities in Bournemouth said they were “appalled” at the scenes on its beaches, as the sunny weather saw an influx of thousands of people. Infection rates have fallen significantly, but the health ministry on Thursday recorded another 149 deaths among confirmed cases of COVID-19, bringing the total to 43,230. (AFP)last_img read more

Zabaleta eyes perfect run-in

first_img Rodriguez, who had been in the frame for a place in England’s squad for Brazil, was carried off on a stretcher after landing awkwardly midway through the first half. The player, club and national boss Roy Hodgson will all be awaiting updates on his condition early next week. Saints equalised with a Rickie Lambert penalty after Zabaleta tripped Jack Cork but two goals just before the break put City in command. The first was highly controversial, with David Silva clearly offside before setting up Samir Nasri. But as Pochettino complained, Dzeko headed a third and the game was effectively gone. Substitute Stevan Jovetic added a fourth nine minutes from time. Zabaleta said: “I think they are probably one of the best teams in the league, for sure. “I think we must give them a lot of credit because they are having a great season, they played really well. “We didn’t play our best in the first half but then we came back stronger. “We had the control of the ball in the second half. We scored four goals and that is great for us.” Pochettino bemoaned the decisions of referee Chris Foy after the game. He was unhappy with the award of City’s early penalty and then felt the missed Silva offside completely changed the game. Striker Lambert was in full agreement with his manager, telling the club’s website, saintsfc.co.uk: “It is a disgrace of a decision, I have got to say. “You can understand two or three yards but five or six – it’s unbelievable. I haven’t got words for it. “It absolutely killed us going into half-time. At 1-1 at half-time at this place, it gives everyone a lift. “We’re not saying we would have drawn or won, but it would have been a different game. Going back out at 3-1 down, it’s hard to get back into a game.” Most thoughts at the club after the game were with Rodriguez, who had been enjoying an outstanding season. Lambert, who has his own World Cup hopes, said: “I’m gutted. Absolutely devastated. “He has been superb for us. He is on fire, he has been on fire all season. “Obviously with what is coming up, it is hard to put into words. I can’t imagine – his head’s gone in there, which you can imagine.” Pablo Zabaleta says winning is the only objective now as Manchester City look to seize control of the title race. City underlined their status as favourites for the Barclays Premier League crown with an ultimately comfortable 4-1 win over Southampton on Saturday. Given that they also have games in hand over rivals Chelsea and Liverpool, third-placed City could afford to draw next week’s crunch clash at Anfield. But with the battle so tight, defender Zabaleta insists they cannot set out to achieve anything less than the full three points. Acknowledging City needed to overcome a battling Southampton for their latest victory, the Argentinian said: “The most important thing was to win – we must keep winning all games. It is going to be very tough until the end of the season. “At the end of the season, sometimes, teams can look a little tired but I think we must keep winning games. “Every single game now is going to be like a final, (but) we have belief. “I think we have a great team to make success this season but it is not going to be very easy. “We need to keep working hard and keep playing like (we did) in the second half. I think playing in that way we will have more chances.” City made the perfect start against Mauricio Pochettino’s mid-table side as Yaya Toure netted a third-minute penalty after Jose Fonte was adjudged to have tripped Edin Dzeko. But they failed to build on that and Saints responded well, even after 17-goal top scorer Jay Rodriguez suffered a serious-looking – and potentially World Cup-ending – knee injury.

JOA pays homage to Olympic giant Arthur Wint

first_imgTHE Jamaica Olympic Association (JOA), the country’s apex sporting body, bestowed special tribute upon legendary track and field icon Dr Arthur Wint for his “historic and pioneering” achievements as one of Jamaica’s “greatest athletes and administrators”.The accolades, which were paid by JOA President Christopher Samuda and Ryan Foster, the association’s ceo/secretary general, were occasioned on the 100th anniversary of the birth of the history-making Jamaica Olympian, who was born on May 25, 1920, in Plowden, Manchester. He earned four medals at the Olympic Games.At the 1948 Olympics in London, Wint, who was nicknamed “Gentle Giant”, won Jamaica’s first-ever Olympic gold medal when he took the 400 metres in 46.2 seconds to defeat his also legendary and long-time Jamaica and Calabar High School teammate, Herb McKenley. The lanky runner also attended Excelsior.Wint, 28 years old at the time and captain of the Jamaica team, also won the silver medal in the 800 metres at those Olympic Games, beaten only by American Mal Whitfield, and missed out on a third medal when he suffered a pulled muscle while running the third leg in the 4×400 metres relay final.Four years later, Wint would return to the Olympic Games, this time in Helsinki, Finland, where he won two medals – silver in the 800 metres, when he was again beaten by Whitfield, and gold as a member of Jamaica’s record-setting (3:03.9 minutes) 4×400 metres team that also included McKenley, George Rhoden, and Leslie Laing.In a tribute titled The Olympic spirit in Wint, Samuda shared: “The length of his stride was not just in yards, but in measureless value. The depth of his footprints was not just earthbound, but commanding. The height of the man was not just imposing, but inspiring. The breadth of his integrity was not merely wide, but all-embracing.“In Arthur Wint stood not only an Olympian, but a gentleman whose character and scholarship went beyond his athletic achievements, which were indeed august. In Arthur Wint resides history and, at the same time, the future of his earthly run was historic, as it was pioneering.“Statistics will continue to record the times of his life with laser precision, and historians will scribe, with homage, his athletic pedigree and pilgrimage. But it is the stature and honour of the man that we find his quintessential bequest,” said Samuda.“On the occasion of the 100th anniversary of his birth, we reflect, as an Olympic movement, on his life spent not only in sport, but generally with humanity, and are inspired beyond the centenary. In Wint, the Olympic spirit ascends. In Wint, the Olympic spirit transcends generations,” Samuda noted of Wint, a physician by profession, who also served as Jamaica’s high commissioner to London from 1974 to 1978.He was awarded the Order of Jamaica by the Government in 1989.Foster highlighted Wint’s storied and rich legacy.He said: “The Jamaica Olympic Association celebrates the life and historic achievements of our beloved son of the soil, Dr Arthur Wint. His achievements have been storied, and have been a part of Jamaica’s rich history at the Olympic Games, especially in track and field. Dr Wint was one of the greatest and most respected athletes and administrators in the Olympic history of Jamaica.”Continuing, Foster said: “We acknowledge Dr Wint’s dedication and passion for the Jamaican Olympic journey. He has left an enduring legacy which we all can be proud of and one in which we all can seek to emulate.His life has had a far-reaching impact on the Jamaican and global landscape, and his name will always resonate as Jamaica’s first Olympic gold medallist. We are so thankful for what he has accomplished and for what his dedication, loyalty, and tenacity brought to our country, which will forever live on.”Honoured eternally with a statue depicting his trademark running form at the National Stadium in Kingston, Wint also served in the Royal Air Force and at St Bartholomew’s Hospital in England, while undergoing medical studies. He died at age 72 in October, 1992.(Reprinted from Jamaica Observer).last_img read more

Liverpool 1 – 2 Man Utd

first_imgRobin van Persie’s late penalty gave Manchester United victory over Liverpool on a poignant afternoon at Anfield.On an occasion when the Hillsborough victims and families were remembered in moving scenes before kick-off, these two great rivals produced a typically competitive and contentious encounter.Liverpool were reduced to 10 men when Jonjo Shelvey was sent off for a first-half foul on United defender Jonny Evans – but it did not stop captain Steven Gerrard volleying them ahead seconds after the interval. United, barely in the game for long periods, responded with a spectacular equaliser from Rafael Da Silva before Van Persie confirmed a fourth straight Premier League win nine minutes from time after Glen Johnson fouled Antonio Valencia.It left Liverpool and new manager Brendan Rodgers without a league win in five attempts this season and in the Premier League’s bottom three, once again rueing their lack of cutting edge.Liverpool enjoyed spells of complete domination in territory and possession but failed to make it count, leaving United, who were without centre-back Nemanja Vidic, the opportunity to take full advantage for their first win at Anfield in six games. As expected, Anfield was an emotional arena after the recent publication of the findings of an independent panel investigating the disaster at the 1989 FA Cup semi-final between Liverpool and Nottingham Forest. The panel cleared Liverpool’s supporters of blame and the build-up to kick-off was marked with a series of tributes to commemorate the occasion.Supporters arrived hours before the start to lay floral tributes at Anfield’s Eternal Flame Hillsborough memorial and The Kop was emblazoned with a mosaic reading “The Truth” while the word “Justice” decorated the lower Centenary Stand.Manchester United legend Sir Bobby Charlton then presented flowers to Liverpool’s record goalscorer Ian Rush as opposing captains Gerrard and Ryan Giggs released 96 red balloons in memory of those who lost their lives.The ceremonies were impeccably observed by both sets of supporters, as was the ritual of the pre-match handshake between Luis Suarez and Patrice Evra. There was no repeat of last season’s scene at Old Trafford when the Uruguayan, who had been found guilty of racially abusing the United defender, refused the Frenchman’s hand. When the action did start Liverpool exerted complete control of the first half but could not find the finishing touch to compliment their fine approach work. Gerrard was closest with a shot narrowly off target at the near post as United struggled to find any fluency.Liverpool’s flow was disrupted in the 39th minute when they lost Shelvey as he was shown a straight red card by referee Mark Halsey for a reckless lunge at Evans that left the United defender requiring treatment.Rodgers replaced Fabio Borini with Suso at the start of the second half and he was instantly involved as Liverpool claimed the lead they deserved. He showed confidence on the flanks and the move, which also included clever work from Johnson, ended with Gerrard sweeping a left-foot volley past Anders Lindegaard in front of an ecstatic Kop.United, who had brought Paul Scholes on for Nani to provide a measure of order to their midfield, were quickly level as Shinji Kagawa chested Valencia’s cross into the path of Rafael, who curled a superb finish beyond the stretching Pepe Reina. Liverpool were still pressing forward and twice Lindegaard rescued United, saving low from Suarez then turning Suso’s rising shot over the top. United had stabilised after that poor first half but it was still against the run of play when they went ahead from the spot – and Liverpool’s undoing was all their own work.Daniel Agger and Johnson collided on the halfway line to concede possession, allowing Valencia to race forward. The run ended with Johnson upending the winger in a desperate attempt at recovery.To make matters worse for the home side, Agger was hurt in the clash was taken off on a stretcher before Van Persie finally converted the penalty, despite Reina getting a hand to his powerful effort which found the top corner.Liverpool had run out of steam, ending with nine men after Martin Kelly was injured, allowing United to close out an important win.last_img read more

Freeway Series: Angels open Freeway Series with 7-6 win over Dodgers

first_imgTrout and Pujols, the Angels’ 3-4 hitters, were a combined 5 for 8, driving in five of their seven runs.With three hits, Pujols rose his batting average to .212. He entered the game hitting .197.The Angels are amid quote the offensive run, scoring 26 runs on their four-game winning streak and 36 over their past five games,The Dodgers’ bats were not exactly quiet either against the Angels’ starter, Matt Shoemaker. Maeda followed up an RBI single from Carl Crawford in second inning with one of his own, helping his own cause.Trayce Thompson, filling in for Yasiel Puig in right field, hit his fifth home of the season in the fourth, all of them coming since April 25, when he hit one 412 feet to left field in the fourth inning. He also had a two-run blast in the eighth for his first multi-home run gave of his career.For Shoemaker, who gave up three runs on six hits over five innings, it was not a brilliant effort, but one of his better outings in recent memories. He had not give up three runs or fewer since April 19.By contrast, the four runs Maeda surrendered were the second most he had given up in a game this season. He was removed after throwing 73 pitches after four innings when Kiké Hernandez came in as a pinch hitter in the top of the fifth.Dodgers first baseman Adrian Gonzalez was also removed from the game after five innings because of tightness in his lower back.Justin Turner took his place, moving Howie Kendrick from third base to first.Gonzalez was 0 for 3 and struck out twice against the Angels.Fernando Salas earned the save for the Angels, as he took over for Joe Smith, who has filled in as the closer without Huston Street (oblique). Smith had thrown 56 pitches in the last three days. The Angels inflicted most of the damage on Maeda in the top of the third inning.The four runs where the most he had allowed in an inning all season.Angels catcher Carlos Perez led off with a double, as four of the first five batters reached base to score a run and load the bases with one out for Mike Trout.On the first pitch he saw, a 75 mph curve ball that dropped over the middle of the plate, Trout drove it to left field, bringing in a pair of runs to position the Angels ahead, 3-2, at the time.Albert Pujols followed with an RBI single. The first four starts of Kenta Maeda’s major-league career offered history. The right-hander from Japan gave up a combined one run during those appearances. It was the fewest for any starting pitcher since at least 1913 and it seemed to mirror the debut of another rookie from 35 years ago. Fernando Valenzuela gave up only one run in his first five starts.But Maeda’s four starts since have not offered nearly as much. He has allowed a total of 14 runs in that span, including four Monday night at in front of 39,583 at Dodger Stadium, swelling his season ERA to 2.87The Dodgers lost their second straight game, this one to the Angels, 7-6. They had come in having won four straight games over the Angels at Dodger Stadium, one shy of equaling their longest home winning streak in the Freeway Series.center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
