Probe launched after Guyana prisoners party on Mother’s Day

first_imgThe Guyana Prison Service (GPS) has joined the Guyana Police Force (GPF) in launching an investigation into how inmates at a prison were able to acquire large bottles of liquor and engage in a party on Mothers’ Day last Sunday.Social media showed the inmates, including one who is on remand on a murder charge, at the New Amsterdam Prison posing with the drinks and smoking what appeared to be marijuana cigarettes.“There is no direct evidence pointing to any prison officer who would have facilitated the movement of the contraband into the prison. The prisoner would have identified a civilian who brought it,” GPS Director, Gladwin Samuels, told the online publication Demerarawaves. He said a playback of video surveillance recordings showed that a tractor was searched and nothing was found.“Sanctions will be taken against those persons who are found culpable,” Samuels said.The latest incident comes less than two weeks ago after Samuels had complained about the ongoing problem of smuggling of prohibited items into the prisons.He warned prison wardens about being part of the smuggling efforts and reminded them of the action that could be taken once they are found in the act.Last July, prisoners of the Camp Street jail gutted that facility during an escape by several prisoners. A young prison officer was shot dead by the escaping prisoners.last_img read more

Clippers see silver lining in otherwise sloppy loss to Lakers

first_imgThe Clippers also committed 30 personal fouls — just two short of their season high. The Lakers thanked them by going 28 for 37 from the free-throw line.Related Articles The revelation for the Clippers? That so much could go awry and they still could be in position to pull it out against the Western Conference’s best team.“The positives are that we had every opportunity to still win the game,” Rivers said. “That would have been a sweet win for us with what our guys have gone through.”“We fought all night,” surmised Kawhi Leonard, who scored 28 points, had two blocks, two steals and went 11 for 14 from the free-throw line. “Definitely got to get better with some of our execution. Pretty good game.”WELCOME BACK, PAT BEVPatrick Beverley gave the Clippers 16 impactful minutes Thursday, despite being listed as “questionable” ahead of the game. Beverley had just finished his quarantine period after returning to deal with a personal matter outside of the bubble.The 6-foot-1 guard scored 12 points, including, in succession, knocking down a corner 3-pointer and fooled defenders to make space for his floater, cutting the Lakers’ lead to seven points with 6:12 to go.“It was great. Pat Bev is family,” George said. “I told him after the game his presence was missed. It’s great for us to be in support of him dealing with what he dealt with.” Game 4 photos: Luka Doncic, Mavs shock Clippers in overtime Clippers hope they can play to their capabilities, quell Mavericks’ momentum What the Clippers are saying the day after Luka Doncic’s game-winner tied series, 2-2 Those miscues were too much to overcome without the services of Montrezl Harrell (18.6 points per game) and Lou Williams (18.7), the team’s reliably prolific scoring punch off the bench. (Harrell remains away tending to a family matter, and Williams was sent to his room to quarantine after stopping for chicken wings, he said, at an Atlanta gentlemen’s club while he was outside of the bubble to attend a funeral.)More than that, the Clippers were incorporating players who’ve only recently joined them in the bubble, either because they’d contracted the coronavirus or because they’d been away dealing with family issues. Rivers warned pregame that the team’s lack of continuity could show and slow down his team.Of course, figuring out the result of many mistakes + missing or unfamiliar pieces isn’t exactly rocket science, said Paul George, who led the Clippers with 30 points on 11-for-17 shooting.“I mean, it was clear as day,” he said. “We fouled too much, turned the ball over too much.”center_img For Lakers’ LeBron James, Jacob Blake’s shooting is bigger issue than a big Game 4 victory The Clippers could take something from their most irregular final regular-season meeting on Thursday in Lake Buena Vista, Florida, a 103-101 loss to the Lakers.“It’s a good lesson for the team,” Coach Doc Rivers said over Zoom. “You can’t make as many mistakes as we made in one game and be shorthanded.”The “self-inflicted wounds,” as Rivers called them, were plentiful; the NBA game-ready personnel on the Clippers’ bench, not so much.In its first official action since March 10, the Clippers (44-21) turned over the ball 22 times — one shy of their season high. The Lakers (50-14) converted those giveaways into 29 points.

Monroeville native Scott hired as assistant coach at LaSalle

first_imgby Malik VincentFormer Pitt forward Shayla Scott achieved a variety of accomplishments both on and off the court during her tenure as a four-year starter for the Panthers—now comes the next challenge.On Aug. 31, Scott, 22, was named as an assistant women’s basketball coach at LaSalle University in Philadelphia. There, she is reunited with Jeff Williams who took over at the Atlantic-10 school last season after being a part of Pitt’s staff for seven seasons as the assistant head coach. SHAYLA SCOTT “This experience will be very rewarding and I’m looking forward to getting started,” Scott said. “I’m just a few months removed from being one of the athletes. So I’m still very familiar with the academics and the conditioning and everything that comes with playing on the division-I level.”Scott, who stands 6-foot-1, put up 12 double-double performances over her career that including back-to-back NCAA tournament Sweet 16 appearances. Her 710 rebounds are 10th best in Pitt Women’s basketball history.She’ll serve as an academic liaison on the coaching staff. She will also work with some of the LaSalle post players, which ironically, is the same job that Williams had while coaching Scott.“I’m excited to bring Shayla into our family, she’s the perfect fit,” Williams said. “She played for me for three years at the University of Pittsburgh. She has a phenomenal intellect of the game and I’m excited about her joining.”Scott received both her Bachelors and Masters degrees in only four years at Pitt. Her undergraduate is in Professional and Media Communication and she earned her Masters in Health and Fitness.Embracing the term “student-athlete,” she’s also served as the secretary of Pitt’s Student-Athlete Advisory Committee and the prestigious Blue and Gold society.“Most importantly, Shayla is a student-athlete and the type of person I want mentoring our kids,” Williams said. “She has great character and she knows what it’s like to be a student-athlete and compete at a high level both on the court and in the classroom.”Though going across state to where most people love cheesesteaks and the Eagles, Scott vows to remain loyal to the Steel City.“I’ve spent the first 22 years of my life here and this is home,” Scott said. “I’m going to continue to be proud of Pittsburgh and I’ll keep being a Steelers fan.”(Malik Vincent can be reached at [email protected])last_img read more

STABLE NOTES BY ED GOLDEN (FRIDAY, JANUARY 27, 2017)

first_imgMIYADI HAS TWO FOR THE MONEY ON SATURDAYTrainer Steve Miyadi has two horses entered on Saturday’s Sunshine MillionsDay card at Santa Anita featuring five stakes offering $1 million for California-bred or sired horses. They are three-year-olds Mr. Hinx in the $250,000 California Cup Derby at a mile and one-sixteenth, and Ms Wayaka in the $200,000 California Cup Oaks at a mile on turf.Both are longshots, but Miyadi recognizes that “you can’t win if you’re not in.”Mr. Hinx, owned by longtime Miyadi client Gary Barber, is coming off a handy six furlong maiden win, while Ms Wakaya, also owned by a longtime client, owner/breeder Tommy Town Thoroughbreds, had issues breaking from the rail when she was a well-beaten fourth in the one mile Soviet Problem at Los Alamitos Dec. 17.“Mr. Hinx has speed and is stretching out,” Miyadi said, “and there’s other speed in the race, but the horse is doing well.“Ms Wakaya was sort of looking around after breaking from the one hole in the Soviet Problem, and while she wasn’t going to beat the winner (Sircat Sally, who scored by 12 lengths), she did improve her position and might have been closer.’The Oaks, race five: Cash Prize, Chantal Sutherland, 20-1; Cioppino Pasadino, Joe Talamo, 30-1; How About Zero, Mario Gutierrez, 15-1; Bella Luma, Rafael Bejarano, 10-1; Adios Call, Norberto Arroyo Jr., 12-1; Ms Wayaka, Kent Desormeaux, 20-1; Miss Sunset, Martin Garcia, 12-1; My Pi Romancer, Flavien Prat, 3-1; Sircat Sally, no rider, 9-5; and Princess Roi, Corey Nakatani, 5-2.The field for the Derby, race nine: Tribal Storm, Rafael Bejarano, 8-1; Ann Arbor Eddie, Mario Gutierrez, 5-2; Mr. Hinx, Norberto Arroyo Jr., 10-1; Hot Smoke, Joe Talamo, 8-1; California Diamond, Kent Desormeaux, 5-2; Six Point Rack, Stewart Elliott, 12-1; and Colis Gold, Martin Garcia, 2-1. VAN DYKE SUFFERS BROKEN ARM IN RIDING SPILLDrayden Van Dyke was at Huntington Memorial Hospital Friday morning after suffering a compound fracture to his right arm following a two-horse spill in Thursday’s fourth race, according to his agent, Brad Pegram.The 22-year-old jockey underwent surgery shortly after arriving at the hospital in nearby Pasadena, and was thankfully cleared of any injuries to his head, neck and spine.Van Dyke, champion apprentice jockey of 2014, had five wins, nine seconds and two thirds from 51 mounts at Santa Anita through Thursday. He was aboard the pace-setting Tawny when the filly went wrong turning into the homestretch.Rally Back, trailing Tawny, could not avoid the fallen horse, unseating jockey Chantal Sutherland, who escaped injury and was working horses Friday morning.Rally Back had only superficial injuries. Bob Baffert2653419%46%$398,246 SPECIAL FIRST POST TIME SATURDAY IS 11:45 A.M.In an effort to better accommodate both the inaugural running of the $12 million Pegasus World Cup Invitational from Gulfstream and a 10-race Sunshine Millions/California Cup card locally, Santa Anita has moved first post time Saturday to 11:45 a.m. HORSEMEN VARY ON PEGASUS PICKSLess than a month into 2017, the Race of the Year is here. It unfolds Saturday atGulfstream Park where Horse of the World Arrogate meets Horse of the Year California Chrome in the inaugural $12 million Pegasus World Cup Invitational at 1 1/8 miles.Opinions on which of the two Southern California-based champions–Arrogate, 2016 Male Three-Year-Old Eclipse Award winner–and California Chrome, 2016 Horse of the Year and Older Dirt Male, varied in a random sampling of Santa Anita-based trainers, as noted:Richard Baltas: Chrome. He’s been training at Gulfstream; Arrogate has not.Alexis Barba: I’ve got to go with Chrome. I loved Arrogate as a three-year-old, but I’ve got to go with ‘the man.’Rafael Beccera: California Chrome 100 percent.David Bernstein: Arrogate might be the best horse but Chrome might have a tactical advantage because he’s been training there and it’s a mile and an eighth.Simon Callaghan: It’s a coin flip, I think.Jack Carava: I like Arrogate based on the post positions, but on training, both are prepared to give it their best shots.James Cassidy: Arrogate. The 12 hole is a big problem (for Chrome). It’s a short run to the first turn, and it’s not like there’s a bum in the one hole.Ben Cecil: I’d like to see Chrome win but I’m probably leaning towards Arrogate.Vladimir Cerin: I just hope it’s a good race.Phil D’Amato: I give Chrome the edge. At Los Al (Winter Challenge) he was eight wide (actually six), so I don’t think the post matters.Neil Drysdale: I like ’em both. I’ll take either one of them.Ron Ellis: Chrome, because Arrogate hasn’t been able to maintain a normal training schedule.Peter Eurton: Chrome with the outside draw.Neil French: I’m leaning slightly towards Arrogate.Paddy Gallagher: I just want to see a great race.Mark Glatt: Arrogate.Jorge Gutierrez: I think Arrogate is the best horse in the country but California Chrome is the best horse of a lifetime.Bruce Headley: Chrome. Years ago Art Sherman galloped the best horse (Swaps) and now he trains the best horse.Dan Hendricks: Chrome, just off the pace with a stalking trip and then blow by them.Eric Kruljac: If I had to bet my life it would be Arrogate, but I’m 100 percent behind Chrome emotionally.Ian Kruljac: At a mile and an eighth, Chrome.Jerry Hollendorfer: Both are California guys; I’d like to see one of those win it, so whichever one wins is fine with me. I think they have to beat Chrome, even though Arrogate beat him before (by a half length in the Breeders’ Cup Classic). I think people are trying to say Arrogate’s not ready, but Bob (Baffert) wouldn’t take him back there if he wasn’t.Marty Jones: Chrome. Going with the Cal-bred.Steve Knapp: Arrogate. He’s got a better post.Brian Koriner: Chrome is too tough.Craig Lewis: It’s a coin flip.Mike Machowsky: I’d like to have either one.Ron McAnally: Arrogate. If I said Chrome, Baffert would choke me.Mike McCarthy: It looks like a great race. I just don’t know who, though.Sean McCarthy: Arrogate, but I’d like Chrome to win it.Gary Mandella: The post positions aren’t good for either horse, but I’d say Chrome.Richard Mandella: They’re both very good. I couldn’t pick between ’em.Alfredo Marquez: I love Chrome. He’s been at Gulfstream and had works on the track. Steve Miyadi: I just hope it’s a great race.Hector Palma: California Chrome. The distance is shorter and it’s better for him.George Papaprodromou: Arrogate. I think he’s the better horse.Jorge Periban: Chrome.Dean Pederson: I give Chrome a slight edge. He didn’t have to train through adverse conditions. Face it: this is Chrome’s all-in race. Arrogate has the whole year ahead of him, but never underestimate Baffert.Marcelo Polanco: Chrome is the better horse. He’s been there and he’s acclimated.John Sadler: It’s pretty close. Maybe Chrome goes out on top.Gary Sherlock: I think the distance favors Chrome. I don’t think he’d beat Arrogate going a mile and a quarter.John Shirreffs: I’m a Chrome fan.Cliff Sise Jr.: It’s 50-50. It should be a good race right down to the wire.Gary Stute: A mile and an eighth suits Chrome better. Arrogate’s better at a mile and a quarter.Eddie Truman: Chrome at a mile and an eighth. If it was a mile and a quarter, I’d go with Arrogate. Chrome will be rolling this time, not sitting there waiting, but Arrogate’s just been spectacular, the way he’s looking.Kathy Walsh: I’m pulling for Chrome. It should be a fabulous race. Arthur did a helluva job giving the horse to the world.Howard Zucker: I love Chrome. I think the distance favors him.The field for the Pegasus, the 12th and last race, with a scheduled post time of 2:44 p.m. Pacific Time: Arrogate, Mike Smith, 7-5; Prayer for Relief, Florent Geroux, 50-1; Neolithic, John Velazquez, 30-1; Noble Bird, Julien Leparoux, 25-1; War Story, Antonio Gallardo, 50-1; War Envoy, Luis Saez, 50-1; Shaman Ghost, Jose Ortiz, 20-1; Semper Fortis, Tyler Gaffalione, 50-1; Keen Ice, Javier Castellano, 12-1; Breaking Lucky, Luis Contreras, 25-1; Eragon, Edgar Prado, 50-1; and California Chrome, Victor Espinoza, 6-5.Whether Chrome or Arrogate is the post time favorite remains to be seen, although an argument could be made that whichever horse is the chalk, the price could be closer to 4-5.NBC will air the Pegasus live from 1:30 p.m. to 3 p.m. PST.

‘The greatest thing to happen to Liverpool in the last five years’

first_img Martin Skrtel had been out of action since December 20 2 A lot has changed since Martin Skrtel joined Liverpool eight years ago, not least his popularity among fans of the club.Once viewed as an integral part of the first team, these days the 31-year-old Slovakian centre-back has fallen down the pecking order.Since getting injured at Watford on 20 December, Skrtel has had to watch Mamadou Sakho and Dejan Lovren form a promising partnership at the back.But against Southampton at St Mary’s Stadium, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp opted to bring Skrtel back into the fray as a second half substitute for Lovren. 2 Take a look at some of the reaction from Liverpool fans on social media…[View the story “Liverpool fans discuss Martin Skrtel” on Storify]last_img read more

Callum Hudson-Odoi tells Chelsea ‘play me or lose me’ as Spain beckons

Reuse this content spent three days observing Sarri’s training methods at Cobham earlier this season, reciprocating an invitation extended by Ranieri in 1996 when he was managing Fiorentina. Sarri, who had been coaching at Antella, in the fifth and sixth tiers of Italian football, on the outskirts of Florence at the time had visited La Viola as the former banker sought to make his mark as a coach.“When we met [recently], Maurizio asked: ‘Do you remember, I came to visit you?’ but I forget everything – even what happened yesterday,” said Ranieri, whose new team have won once at Stamford Bridge in 54 years.“I was always open to other coaches. Now, when I have been out of work, I have often visited other teams to learn. I went to watch Jürgen Klopp at Borussia Dortmund, and look to go around the world. So I asked to come to see Maurizio at Chelsea, so I know everything about his training. But, believe me, it’s still difficult to stop them.” Hudson-Odoi’s situation has attracted tentative interest from Spain and Germany, with Maurizio Sarri having suggested this week he is not yet convinced the forward is ready for top-flight football.The player is understood to be reluctant to drop into the Championship in a temporary move.

Hudson-Odoi, prolific in the youth set-up and impressive in pre-season, made his first start of the campaign in Thursday’s Europa League thrashing of Paok Salonika and scored his first senior goal in the 4-0 win. Yet the 18-year-old, who has 18 months left on his contract, had only previously benefited from two run-outs as a substitute against Bate Borisov in that competition this term and has yet to be included in a match-day squad in the Premier League. The fact he has been training with the first team has ensured he no longer plays for his age group, and he has made only five appearances for the development under-23s side.While Chelsea offered him a five-year deal in the summer and would consider loaning him out in January, the England Under-17 World Cup winner is reluctant to sign as things stand.

Man facing human trafficking charges after investigation in seven provinces

first_imgHALIFAX – A 31-year-old man is facing multiple charges after a year-long, seven-province investigation into a human trafficking ring allegedly forcing “numerous” Nova Scotia women into the sex trade across Canada.The RCMP said it learned last April that men originally from Nova Scotia had relocated to Ontario and were trafficking and exploiting women from their home province.Supt. Alfredo Bangloy would not say how many victims are involved, but said the suspect named Thursday, Lorenzo Trevor Thomas, is associated with a Halifax-area street gang known as North Preston’s Finest.“We know there are other victims of human trafficking from Nova Scotia out there. Our goal is to find these women, get them to safety and go after their traffickers,” Bangloy said.“We want to see victims and their families get their lives back.”Due to the complexity of the investigation — dubbed Operation Hellbender — Nova Scotia Mounties worked with Halifax Regional Police and RCMP in British Columbia, Alberta, Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec and Newfoundland.Thomas was arrested by police in Niagara Falls on March 27 and remains in custody in Ontario.He’s facing 17 charges, including trafficking in persons, assault, advertising sexual services and receiving a material benefit from sexual services. Police say more charges could be laid.Bangloy said such investigations are often reliant on victims coming forward, and the RCMP is urging them to contact police.“These victims are generally isolated, taken far away from home and made to fear for their safety,” said Bangloy at a press conference at Nova Scotia RCMP headquarters in Halifax.Bangloy stressed police are not looking to investigate sex trade workers.Const. Natasha Jamieson, RCMP awareness coordinator for human trafficking, said victims often do not realize they are being trafficked.She said it often begins with a trafficker seeking out a vulnerable teenager. They then groom the victim by making them feel special and showing them a more glamorous life.Jamieson said many victims develop feelings of love, trust and loyalty to their trafficker.“The hopes and dreams they have been promised are what they hold onto and believe that to be their future,” said Jamieson.She said perpetrators then begin to manipulate the victim, often threatening them and making them believe they must work to get back in their “good books.”When the victim’s self-esteem is broken, the trafficker can now exploit them, putting them in a position to do something they wouldn’t normally do, said Jamieson.“You may have a victim who was singled out in their teens by a trafficker, who entices them into believing their relationship has a future,” she said.“They can be discouraged from legitimate means of employment, forced into exotic dancing and prostitution where profits earned by the victim have to be provided to the trafficker.”Jamieson said the expectation is that a woman will work into her late 20s or early 30s before being replaced by someone younger.Police say signs that someone is involved in human trafficking include becoming isolated from friends and family, moving frequently or staying in hotels, unexplained injuries and new tattoos indicating ownership or branding.Thomas is scheduled to appear at Niagara provincial court on May 9.last_img read more
