  • Warriors weather the Storm in Rotorua

    first_imgA home side missing several of their most-experienced players scored four tries to three on Saturday against the Storm, comprising personnel from reserve grade and feeder clubs.Without their premiership-winning first-grade players – who beat Leeds 38-4 on Friday night in the World Club Challenge – Melbourne still put up a decent performance.They opened the scoring with an exceptional team try finished by Sunshine Coast Falcons winger Matt Sopa-Lowler.The Warriors responded through tries to centre Solomone Kata and winger David Fusitu’a to lead 10-4 at halftime. The second try set up by quick hands from Peta Hiku and Blake Ayshford.Second-rower Ligi Sao’s try, off a neat grubber from stand-in captain Mason Lino, pushed the hosts further clear.Hooker Harry Grant and winger Ryan Papenhuyzen crossed late for Melbourne, either side of a Warriors try to Lewis Soosemea.The match at Rotorua International Stadium gave coach Stephen Kearney a chance to field six new players. Hiku, Agnatius Paasi and Leivaha Pulu all started, while Anthony Gelling, Matiu Love-Henry and Rotorua product Hayze Perham were given time off an extended interchange bench.The major Warriors’ concern was a knee injury to Paasi in his first carry of the game. The former Gold Coast prop had strained a medial ligament and would need assessment, coach Stephen Kearney said.Hiku, Paasi and Leivaha Pulu all started whileAnthony Gelling, Matiu Love-Henry and Rotorua Boys’ High School product Hayze Perham were given time off an extended interchange bench.The Warriors face Gold Coast in a second trial match next week on the Sunshine Coast before opening their NRL campaign on March 10 against South Sydney in Perth.last_img read more

  • HP Sport partners with James Cook University

    first_imgWhile the formalities were completed only a few weeks ago, HPS Director Aaron Alsop said initial plans began last year.“In 2015, I visited the Queensland Academy of Sport and met with the Director along with his Manager of the Centre of Excellence to discuss some capacity building and information sharing opportunities.“This was made possible through an agreement of the International Association of Sports Performance Centres.“Through these discussions, there was an opportunity to be linked to some of the key research partners of the QAS, one being James Cook University,” said Alsop.Alsop said the specific interest with JCU was with a current research project that JCU Head of Sport and Exercise Science department, Dr Glen Deakin was conducting in the Solomon Islands.“With the concept of working with Melanesian groups before, the similarities to PNG could provide us with some background on how best to undertake some projects we wish to begin to research for PNG sports.“Another key staff member in the JCU Sport & Exercise Science department is Dr Stephen Bird who has been running a range of HP programs with different sports, notably his work in establishing a HP program for some Indonesian sports.“There are a lot of similarities which offer some distinct advantages to PNG,” said Alsop.Dr Glen Deakin added on that the MoU between James Cook and the High Performance Sport PNG was a milestone as there hasn’t previously been an agreement between the two organisations.“The purpose of the relationship is to work together to expand co-operation and the exchange of ideas in areas of mutual interest. “Whilst the specifics of the relationship are yet to be determined and are in the discussion stages, we look to work with the PNG High Performance Program in a variety of capacities including in the areas of exchange of teaching staff/researchers, joint development of research projects, exchange of students and education such as shared courses/subjects to name a few,” said Dr Deakin.last_img read more

  • Reinforced anti-suicide drive, regular training for Police ranks

    first_imgParliamentary Committee recommends– finds Region Two has highest suicide rate in countryBy Jarryl BryanA 2017 visit to Region Two (Pomeroon-Supenaam) by the Parliamentary Sectoral Committee on Social Services (PSCSS) has found shortfalls in how equipped authorities are, not only to deal with domestic violence cases, but also in their efforts to sensitise the public on issues such as suicide.This is contained in the PSCSS’ Seventh Special Report, which was presented to the National Assembly last month. The PSCSS said in that report that it had paid a visit to the Police station at Suddie, Region Two. There, it was met by officer-in-charge, Sergeant Moore. The PSCSS recorded that Region Two has the highest suicide rate in Guyana, but Sergeant Moore informed the delegation that while officers are trained in that area at the Police Training School, they rarely get calls on their hotline numbers.“Commander Steven Mansell informed the committee that the Cop and Faith network was launched in 2011. He stated that every station has a list of Cop and Faith religious leaders (who) are active in the network, (but) at present, Christian leaders are the only names on the list. He posited that the system is working well,” the committee documented.Issues regarding the ability of Police officers to handle cases of domestic violence were also raised. While the committee was informed that ranks are not specifically trained to deal with domestic violence, they were also told that officers are exposed to such cases during their initial training.“During the interactions, the delegation enquired what occurs when women come to make domestic violence reports. Sgt Moore stated that there was no specific room for domestic violence victims. However, the Criminal Investigative Department or Operations Room was used to take that report. He further noted that there was no special unit to handle cases of domestic violence and child abuse. Nevertheless, the Anna Regina Police Station has such a unit,” the committee recorded.In cases of sexual offence, it was related that officers at Anna Regina are trained specifically to deal with these issues. The committee reported that in the event of such cases, those officers are informed to take the report.RecommendationsBesides making recommendation for the Police to request new furniture, including chairs and a desk for their enquiry area, the committee urged that the region aggressively raise its suicide awareness campaign.“Billboards depicting suicide should be created and erected around the region, and the hotline number placed on the television,” the committee advised. “The station should have monthly community meetings to sensitise the public of the law, and where victims could go to report cases of suicide, sexual offences, domestic violence, and occupational health and safety (issues).”According to the PSCSS, “There should be continuous training for officers in areas of suicide, domestic violence, and road safety. Police officers should coordinate with the religious community to have a representative on the list of Cop and Faith.”According to data from Suddie Public Hospital, for the period January to November 2017, there have been 38 attempted suicide cases there, with 8 recorded deaths.The Guyana Foundation under the Sunrise Centre, along with the Caribbean Voice, conducted several programmes along the Essequibo Coast to assist persons suffering from mental health issues. The Sunrise Centre is also open to those seeking counselling.Besides the Sunrise Centre, there is the Guyana Interagency Suicide Prevention Help Line. It can be reached on telephone numbers (+592) 223-0001, 223-0009, 600-7896, 623-4444, Email: guyagency@yahoo.com, BBM PINS: 2BE55649, 2BE56020 Twitter: guyanaagency; WhatsApp: +592-600-7896, 592- 623-4444.last_img read more

  • Manchester City sought to bypass financial fairplay rules: report

    first_imgThe allegations are the latest in the so-called Football Leaks series.FFP rules were introduced to curb European sides racking up huge debts and to put limits on how much clubs could lose over prescribed periods.City were fined 60 million euros by UEFA in 2014 for breaching those rules, but the two parties reached an agreement under which the club would get 40 million euros back if they stuck to the terms of their settlement.Der Spiegel says City were in danger of violating the FFP rules after they sacked manager Roberto Mancini in 2013 after the club failed to successfully defend their title.The magazine claims that in an internal email, City’s chief financial officer Jorge Chumillas wrote: “We will have a shortfall of 9.9m pounds in order to comply with UEFA FFP this season. The deficit is due to RM (Roberto Mancini) termination. I think that the only solution left would be an additional amount of AD (Abu Dhabi) sponsorship revenues that covers this gap.”To evade UEFA sanctions, another City executive allegedly suggested “a backdated deal for the next two years (…) paid up front”.– ‘Do what we want’ –Der Spiegel claimed that 10 days after the end of the season, Chumillas announced his decision — sponsorship contracts would be adjusted, with the club’s main sponsor Etihad paying £1.5 million more, the Abu Dhabi tourism authority chipping in £5.5 million and investment fund Aabar £0.5 million.Crucially, all the sponsors were allegedly asked to act as if the deal had been agreed at the start of the season.When Chumillas asked his colleague Simon Pearce if they could change the date of payments from the sponsors, Pearce allegedly answered: “Of course, we can do what we want.”In a repeated statement they first issued last week, City said they would not comment on what they described as “out of context materials purportedly hacked or stolen from City Football Group and Manchester City personnel and associated people.”The club’s manager Pep Guardiola insisted he wasn’t aware of any wrongdoing.“I’m completely honest, I don’t know what happen because I’m a manager. I’m focused on what happens on the pitch, in the locker room,” said Guardiola on Tuesday on the eve of City’s Champions League clash with Shakhtar Donetsk.“The business and how they handle this sort of situation, I am completely out. “But I am part of the club, I am supportive of absolutely the club and we want to do what we have to do in terms of the rules.”The accusations hinge on City’s insistence that the Abu Dhabi-based companies are independent sponsors and not merely tools of the Gulf state.If clubs can show that revenues come from sponsors and not just their owners, they can make larger expenditure on players without falling foul of the FFP rules.Some of City’s European rivals, including Bayern Munich and Atletico Madrid, have complained about such practices.In the first allegations on Friday, French investigative website Mediapart claimed Gianni Infantino — the current FIFA president who was then UEFA’s general secretary — had “directly negotiated” the agreement with City to reduce their 2014 fine.Mediapart claimed Infantino deliberately bypassed UEFA’s financial control authorities by proposing that City actually pay a fine “of 20 million euros instead of 60.”FIFA said the claims were an attempt to “undermine” Infantino.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Der Spiegel claims Manchester City tried to bypass Financial Fair Play rules over Roberto Mancini’s sacking in 2013 © AFP / ANDREW YATESBerlin, Germany, Nov 6 – Premier League champions Manchester City attempted to bypass UEFA’s Financial Fair Play (FFP) regulations by allowing their Abu Dhabi-based sponsors to make cash injections, Der Spiegel alleges on Tuesday.The German news magazine said it had seen internal documents in which the club’s officials discussed how to wipe out a shortfall of almost £10 million ($13 million).last_img read more

  • Washington `D’ not overlooked

    first_imgSEATTLE — Seahawks quarterback Matt Hasselbeck’s eyes widened. His eyebrows raised. His head shook slightly. He seemed impressed. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGift Box shows no rust in San Antonio Stakes win at Santa Anita “They’re a physical defense,” Hasselbeck said. “They’re going to hit you. They’re going to make you pay.” Washington’s defense knocked out both of Seattle’s starting receivers in October. The Redskins were one of only five teams to hold league Most Valuable Player Shaun Alexander under 100 yards rushing. “That was a tough game,” Hasselbeck said of an overtime loss at Washington on Oct. 2. And Hasselbeck has had enough tough games over previous years to know one and to thoroughly enjoy this year’s emergence as the often-unflappable leader of the NFC’s top seed. The cost of the October loss to Washington for Seattle was a pittance compared to what’s at stake today. A defeat would devastate a franchise that hasn’t won a playoff game since 1984 but enjoys its best postseason position ever. Not because Seattle is two wins from the Super Bowl. Or because the Seahawks are playing host to a divisional playoff game at Qwest Field for the first time today. It was the punishing Washington Redskins defense that had Hasselbeck’s attention. center_img It would also devastate a region that has seemingly invested three decades of hope, waiting for the Seahawks to play in their first Super Bowl. The Redskins want to smash those hopes and some ball carriers and receivers. “Being physical, that’s going to be the key for us,” Washington safety Ryan Clark said. “They are going to take those 2-yard and 5-yard passes … But when a guy catches a 2-yard pass and they hit them in the mouth, they don’t like that. “That will make a receiver go back to the quarterback and say, `Hey, if you see 53 (linebacker Marcus Washington) or 21 (safety Sean Taylor) around me, you might not want to throw it right there.’ ” Hasselbeck said the Redskins don’t just hit. They also trick. He said Washington is great at disguising “exotic looks” such as blitzes, fake blitzes and combination coverages. Redskins defensive coordinator Gregg Williams, the brains behind the operations, recently received a three-year contract extension reported to be worth almost $8 million. But Alexander said the Seahawks should thank the Redskins for their bullying tricks. The loss to Washington helped change Seattle’s offensive schemes, Alexander said. That, in turn, led Seattle to a team-record 11-game winning streak and the NFC’s top playoff seed. “That was an eye-opener game for us,” said Alexander, who finished the season as the league rushing champion with 1,880 yards and an NFL-record 28 touchdowns. The Seahawks defense may have had a hard time keeping its eyes open watching Washington’s offense slog to just 120 yards of offense last week at Tampa Bay. That was the lowest output for a winning team in the playoffs. The Redskins won because their defense scored one touchdown and set up the other in a 17-10 victory. Clinton Portis is the man Seattle needs to stop. Seattle coach Mike Holmgren called the Redskins running back “a little package of dynamite.” Portis set a franchise record with 1,516 yards rushing, fourth-most in the league. The last time Seattle faced a premier runner aside from a one-quarter cameo of Indianapolis’ Edgerrin James in a meaningless game Tiki Barber of the New York Giants romped for 151 yards on Nov. 27. But Portis had just 53 yards, on 16 carries, against the top-ranked Buccaneers defense last week. He also pinched nerves in both shoulders. Yet he said he is fine now. He’s even ready to go back to hitting opponents, just like his defense. “I’m going to hit them or they’re going to hit me,” Portis said. “I want to come out with the better end of that.” The Redskins also have the potential to hit big plays with wideout Santana Moss, whom veteran quarterback Mark Brunell loves to find on deep routes. Marcus Trufant, the Seahawks’ best cover cornerback, will likely cover Moss most of the day. Trufant, who is returning from a lower back bruise, expects to see “a whole lot of Portis.” “Oh, yeah,” Trufant said. “They’ve been doing that all year.” Seahawks Pro Bowl left tackle Walter Jones will see plenty of his former teammate, Redskins defensive end Phillip Daniels. Daniels one of the best seasons of his 10-year career with eight sacks including four in one game last month against Dallas. Clark said Daniels has allowed the formerly blitz-dependent Redskins to keep more defenders in pass coverage. Jones was just named to his sixth Pro Bowl. Daniels has never been to one. But that didn’t keep Daniels from semi-joking that he is Jones’ mentor. “He knows me. I’m his teacher. I taught him everything he knows,” Daniels said. Ultimately, the Seahawks must slow that punishing Redskins’ defense. “They made us mature in some areas,” Hasselbeck said. Today’s game will prove how much they’ve grown up. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!

  • The immigration divide

Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Protests by thousands of students Monday and other demontrations over the weekend centering on the nation’s immigration policy drew contradictory reactions from Whittier-area congressional members and their staffs. Rep. Gary Miller, a co-author of HR 4437, the U.S. House of Representatives- passed immigration reform bill protested by hundreds of thousands of marchers in Los Angeles this past weekend, defended his stance Monday in written statement. “I strongly believe the U.S. government must maintain a tough and unified policy on immigration to effectively curb the influx of illegal aliens entering our nation,” stated Miller, R-Brea. “The so-called `guest-worker’ proposals being considered are nothing more than a mechanism to provide amnesty to millions of illegals living in the United States,” he added. HR 4337, authored by Rep. James Sensenbrenner, R-Wisconsin, would make it a felony to be in the United States illegally and would build 700 miles of fencing along the 2,000-mile U.S.-Mexico border. But representatives for Rep. Grace Napolitano, D-Santa Fe Springs, said any sweeping immigration reform must address the concerns of the protesters. “There are thousands of people crying for humanitarian, constructive legislation that addresses immigration reform,” said Lupe Canipe, Napolitano’s press secretary. “They’re strong and they’re passionate,” Canipe said of the marchers, including students who walked out of area schools Monday. “This is about their livelihood.” Canipe charged that Sensenbrenner’s bill was authored largely in response to the concerns of what she said is a smaller group of anti-immigrant advocates, including the Minutemen, who favor tougher border enforcement. “We think that real comprehensive immigration legislation should address the preference of the more than 100,000 people who have demonstrated in Los Angeles, Chicago, New York, and Washington, D.C,” said Jasper Pedersen, a legislative assistant for Napolitano. Napolitano favors the immigration reform proposal of U.S. Sens. John McCain, R-Arizona, and Edward Kennedy, D-Massachusetts, which provides for “earned” legalization for illegal immigrants. Under the McCain-Kennedy plan, illegal immigrants who pay a $1,000 fine and pass a criminal background check could apply for a visa, good for six years, allowing them to work here legally and travel out of the country. They later could apply for legal permanent residency and, ultimately, citizenship, if they pay an additional $1,000, show English and civics proficiency, and make good on all back taxes. But Miller, in his statement, said these proposals reward law-breakers and are unfair to legal immigrants. “They send a message that the United States does not take our immigration laws seriously and that, if only people can get into the country illegally, eventually they can be rewarded with legal status,” he said. “In 1986, Congress granted amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants living in the United States on the promise that border security would come later,” he said. “Now, federal, state and local governments spend billions of dollars each year educating, caring for and incarcerating illegal immigrants.” Until the federal government secures the border, taxpayers will have to continue to foot the bill for a variety of social services offered to illegals, Miller said.
