  • Man shot, killed in Better Hope

    first_imgA 29-year-old man was fatally shot on Saturday at his residence in Better Hope, East Coast Demerara.The victim has been identified as Denis Nandlall of 21 Lalchan Street, Better Hope South.Dead: Denis NandlallA relative of the deceased, Alicia Douglas, told Guyana Times on Sunday that she, Nandlall and a few others were chatting in the yard of their family home when the incident happened.“I heard him talking to someone on the road. I heard him saying ‘come back tomorrow, the guy is not at home’ and before you know it, things happened so fast,” she recalled.Douglas then recalled hearing a loud explosion and soon after, she saw her cousin fall to the ground. Upon inquiring, relatives discovered that Nandlall had been shot in the back.According to her, no one saw who fired the shot, but neighbours claimed that they saw two strange men on bicycles, wearing hoodies in the street around the same time that the incident happened.Nandlall was rushed to the Woodlands Hospital for emergency medical treatment. “They said he had to get emergency surgery. They asked us to pay down the ward fee. When the doctor examined him, they told us to lodge down $550,000,” Douglas stated.Since the family did not have that amount of cash on hand, they were presented with no choice but to transfer Nandlall to the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation.“By time that, he had major internal bleeding, which resulted in his death. The bullet was lodged in his back on the left side, which according to the doctors caused the internal bleeding,” she added.While some are still finding it hard to believe that someone would just show up at Nandlall’s home and shoot him, others believe that something may have led to this unfortunate incident. Asked whether Nandlall ever interfered with anyone, Douglas doubted that her cousin would attempt to create trouble with anyone. She also claimed that he was never involved in any criminal activity. “He is a very good human being. I’ve never knew him to be a bad person or somebody that would do something wrong. He was a decent person. I know him well and he is a good person,” she stressed.An aunt of the deceased, Joyce Nandlall, told this newspaper that she was very saddened and shocked by what transpired. She claimed that her nephew was a decent individual who was never a troublemaker.“He don’t drink and smoke and fight and make trouble with anybody. I don’t know if people don’t like him. I can’t say. What I know is he is not a trouble-making person and he don’t fight with anybody.”Joyce said the incident has brought to bear the question of how safe neighbourhoods were these days.“It’s like we are not safe anymore. Just imagine this happened in our own home. Because the person just came and asked him for somebody, they shoot him. Life doesn’t have a value anymore?”While some are speculating that it could have been an attempted robbery, others are of the opinion that Nandlall was specifically targeted and his murder was carefully planned and executed. The man was expected to get married later this year. The matter is currently being investigated by the Police. Nandlall will be laid to rest today.last_img read more

  • Morocco whip Nigeria for CHAN title, bag Sh127mn

    first_imgZakaria Hadraf put the home team ahead at Stade Mohammed V on the stroke of half-time and added the match-clinching third goal midway through the second half.In between the first goals of the tournament for Hadraf, fellow midfielder Mohamed el Karti netted soon after Nigerian attacker Eneji Moses was red-carded following a second caution.Before the biennial tournament kicked off last month, Achraf Bencharki from 2017 CAF Champions League winners Wydad Casablanca was the centre of attention.His five goals were instrumental in the success of Wydad and he was expected to spearhead the Moroccan CHAN challenge.But Bencharki was a shock absentee from the line-up for the tournament opener while lone striker El Kaabi bagged a brace in a 4-0 mauling of Mauritania.He followed up with a hat-trick — only the third in the history of the tournament — against Guinea, put one past Namibia and scored twice in the semi-final victory over Libya.His nine goals comfortably surpassed the previous record of five from Zambian Given Singuluma in the first CHAN finals nine years ago.El Kaabi helped Racing Casablanca win promotion to the Moroccan top flight last season, then joined Renaissance Berkane, a relatively successful but low-profile elite division outfit.After his CHAN exploits, national coach Herve Renard is likely to give the 24-year-old a chance as Morocco prepare to face Iran, Portugal and Spain at the 2018 World Cup in Russia.The destruction of Nigeria created a record winning margin for a CHAN final, bettering the three-goal victories of Tunisia and the Democratic Republic of Congo.Morocco pocketed a record Sh127mn ($1.25 million) having justified their pre-tournament role as favourites to win the fifth CHAN.Sudan performed best of the four previous host nations, finishing third. Rwanda reached the quarter-finals and the Ivory Coast and South Africa exited after the first round.Morocco also became the first champions to win five of the six matches — defeating Mauritania, Guinea, Namibia and Libya before overwhelming Nigeria.The only blemish was partly self-inflicted as they fielded a virtual reserve side in a goalless draw with Sudan after both nations had secured last-eight places.El Kaabi had a goal disallowed and struck the woodwork before Hadraf sidefooted a cut-back between the legs of goalkeeper Oladele Ajiboye for a 45th-minute lead.After Moses had been sent off, Morocco took control and Nigeria fell apart with some comical defending contributing to their downfall.El Karti made it 2-0 just past the hour, Hadraf completed his brace three minutes later and player-of-the-tournament El Kaabi completed the rout with 73 minutes gone.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Morocco players celebrate after winning the 2018 CHAN title in CassablancaCASABLANCA, Morocco, Feb 5- Ayoub el Kaabi scored his ninth goal of the 2018 African Nations Championship (CHAN) as Morocco became the first hosts to triumph by thrashing 10-man Nigeria 4-0 Sunday in a Casablanca downpour.With Nigeria in disarray and the final long over as a contest, the previously little known striker completed his record-extending goal haul by firing into the net from close range.last_img read more

I have to be in a game situation to prove my worth and that is the most important thing to me,” Okumu told Capital Sport.This was only his second cap for the senior team having made his debut against Sudan in a friendly match at the Kasarani Stadium two and a half years ago and had to wait all that while before making his second cap.He came on as a second half substitute in the game against Madagascar and his performance drew a lot of praise from not only the coach and captain, but the fans who watched the tie as well.“It has been a good experience being with the team for several years; not playing but probably just being on the bench, observing and seeing what’s happening around.

In my position, there are several experienced players around me and learning from them has been great. At this point, I know I am capable of making a good performance because of the guidance I have received,” Okumu stated.He is however heartbroken that teammate Mandela who he ranks as one of his mentors in the game will be unavailable due to injury.“Mandela has been one of my mentors and I have been looking up to him a lot. He has been of great help to me up to where I am now and he has played a crucial role in building my career especially when we were both in South Africa. Playing alongside him for the national team was a pleasure and also the experienced players in the team like Victor (Wanyama),” stated the young defender.Okumu hopes to impress, if given a chance at the Cup of Nations especially now that he looks to secure a full professional contract with his club Monarchs in the USA.-Timothy Olobulu is reporting from Paris, France- 0Shares0000(Visited 7 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Harambee Stars defender Joseph ‘Crouch’ Okumu controls the ball during a training session at the National Rugby Centre in Marcoussis, Paris on June 10, 2019.

  • Mini cattle rustle up little bit of the country

    first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECoach Doc Rivers a “fan” from way back of Jazz’s Jordan Clarkson Bryan is among a group of pioneering breeders raising miniature cattle that can be as little as a third of the size of the larger breeds. The reasons are many, they say. You don’t need the back 40 acres to raise these breeds; the back four will do. Mini cattle eat about a third as much as a full-size steer, are less destructive of pasture land and fencing, and are easier to handle. “I’m 56 years old, and you want to know something? I can handle them better,” Bryan said, recounting a struggle the winter before with a full-size steer who got his horns caught in a hay rack. While each animal may be smaller, more meat can be produced overall from each acre, breeders say. And the smaller size of each animal also has its benefits. While some people look to save money by buying an entire cow or a side of beef, it can be difficult to store the hundreds of pounds of meat from a 1,200- to 1,500-pound steer, of which about 40 percent makes it to the freezer. Miniature cattle, which often are between 500 and 700 pounds, provide enough meat to last a family of four six months. That’s just about the freezer shelf life of beef, said Bryan. And the meat tastes the same, depending on how the cattle has been raised and fed. Bryan, who runs a construction business, said his wife, Donna, does most of the farm work, spending about two hours a day taking care of their animals. “Women can raise these steers just as well as men can,” Bryan said. Bryan said most of his calves will die “of old age” because buyers are usually looking to breed the smaller cows themselves or keep them as pets. Miniature cattle calves are more expensive than the standard size because they are still relatively rare. Bryan said he is getting $1,600 for female calves and $1,000 for bulls, compared with $500 to $600 for normal calves. But he expects prices to drop as the mini varieties become more common. Richard H. Gradwohl, who has developed a number of small breeds at his Happy Mountain Miniature Cattle Farm in Covington, Wash., said six niche markets have developed for the miniature breeds. Miniature cattle are primarily sold for use as pets, for small-scale milk production, breeding, showing, organic beef production or for the farm-grown market, which produces cattle on smaller farms, Gradwohl said. Sixty percent to 70 percent are sold as pets, he estimated. Full miniature cattle are defined as those below 42 inches at the hip when fully grown, while mid-size miniatures are up to 48 inches, said Gradwohl, who registers 26 miniature breeds. Another factor driving the popularity is that most people don’t have enough land for full-size cattle, which need five acres for two cattle, compared with an acre for a pair of miniature cattle. “The years where we had people with three, four, five hundred acres are gone,” Gradwohl said. “If you have five acres with miniature cattle the concentration is about two per acre, so you can raise 10 miniature cattle on five acres quite well.” Those 10 mini cows will provide about 6,000 pounds on the hoof, compared with as much as 3,000 pounds that could come from two full-size cattle, Gradwohl said. “That’s true because of the feed efficiency of the animals, and their hooves are smaller so they won’t tear up the pasture,” which helps maintain the grass they feed on, he said. Cattle that can be raised easier on grass only is also an increasingly desirable trait because grass-fed beef is said to contain higher levels of heart-healthy Omega 3 fatty acids, breeders say. However, finding growers who raise miniature cattle for beef is still fairly difficult because of the rarity of the breeds and the fact most are raised as pets. In Felton, Del., Charles Warren has a half dozen Zebus – miniature humpbacked Brahmans – which he says are the only true miniatures because they are naturally small and have not been bred down to their size. Warren, who works for Kraft Foods in Dover, Del., keeps the five cows and one bull as a hobby, along with a variety of other small animals on his 25-acre property. “They’re like a pet more than anything. I like them because they’re neat looking, they’re oddities,” Warren said. Warren said he hasn’t eaten any or sold any for slaughter, with most going to breeders and some to a rodeo outfit. “My wife won’t eat anything we grow on the farm. She says if it doesn’t come on a Styrofoam tray we don’t eat it.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! TRAPPE, Md. – If you’re a suburban cowboy hankering to raise a herd and short on ranch land, mini cattle may be for you. New breeds of pint-size heifers and bulls are making it easier for small farmers to raise cattle for milk, meat or just fun. On Bill Bryan’s 50-acre spread on Maryland’s Eastern Shore, he has sold seven calves this year. “We’ve sold the vast majority of our calves to people who have these little three- to five-acre ‘farmettes’ and they’ll fence in an acre, buy a calf and more or less keep ’em for pets,” Bryan said. Two mini cattle calves stood nearby, contentedly munching on grass in a small fenced-in area, skittering away if visitors got too close. last_img read more

  • Duke passes biggest test

    first_imgDURHAM, N.C. – Playing third-fiddle to fellow Duke seniors J.J. Redick and Shelden Williams doesn’t bother Sean Dockery at all. He gets plenty of attention and respect where it matters most – in his own locker room. “If people overlook me, oh, well,” Dockery said. “My team and my coach, that’s my family, and they know what I’m doing. That’s a great feeling.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORESanta Anita opens winter meet Saturday with loaded card“That’s the best team we’ve played,” Blue Devils coach Mike Krzyzewski said. “They know what they’re doing and they do it well. It’s a big win for us.” The Wolfpack (14-3, 3-2) were never too far away in a game that featured 16 lead changes and nine ties, the last at 65-65 following a free throw from N.C. State’s Gavin Grant. On the other end, Dockery swished a 3 as Tony Bethel slammed into him. When his free throw clanged off the rim, Dockery chased down the rebound and found Melchionni alone at the top of the key. His jumper also found the mark, and suddenly, the Blue Devils had a six-point lead. They never were challenged again. At No. 2 Florida 113, Savannah State 62 Dockery made a go-ahead 3-pointer and set up another an instant later by Lee Melchionni to help the No. 1 Blue Devils beat No. 14 North Carolina State 81-68 on Wednesday night. Redick scored 28 points and Williams had 21, but it was Dockery’s plays down the stretch that helped Duke reach 17-0 (5-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) for only the second time.

  • L.A. leaders train eyes on transit

    first_imgSaying new roads and highways won’t do enough to relieve Southern California’s notorious traffic congestion, Assembly Speaker Fabian Nuñez and Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa called Friday for more mass-transit projects to be included in Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s infrastructure plan. Nuñez wants at least one-third of the proposed $12 billion in transportation bond revenue earmarked for public transit, which could include busways or seed money for Villaraigosa’s $4.8 billion Wilshire Boulevard subway. “The only way we can address the goal and outcome of reducing traffic congestion … is not only by building more roads in this state, building more highways in this state. It also comes down to the investment we make in public transit,” Nuñez, D-Los Angeles, said at a news conference at the North Hollywood subway station. The Legislature is debating putting a transportation bond issue on the ballot this year to help fund infrastructure improvements statewide. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECasino Insider: Here’s a look at San Manuel’s new high limit rooms, Asian restaurant Schwarzenegger has compiled a list of $222 billion in projects, including $107 billion for transportation – $12 billion of which would be funded by bonds. But Los Angeles leaders complain there’s too much emphasis on roads and highways, and not enough on the buses and trains that are at the core of L.A.’s gridlock-busting strategy. Assembly Democrats also want more mass transit. Sunne Wright McPeak, the governor’s secretary for business, transportation and housing, said Schwarzenegger is listening to all suggestions but wants projects that will be effective and cost-efficient. She added that there’s already $25 billion in unfunded transit projects on wish lists statewide. “The very good news is we’ve got people thinking in terms of outcomes, not just what’s the latest project today we can throw money that … Outcomes means what could we get done realistically,” she said. Nuñez and Villaraigosa were were joined by former Assembly Speaker Richard Katz and Councilwoman Wendy Greuel, who co-authored a council resolution supporting more mass transit. To critics who say the subway’s high cost would take resources from elsewhere in the county, the mayor offered assurances that he supports a range of projects, including Orange Line extensions and traffic signal synchronization. Nuñez said later that he thinks the subway should be included. “It’s a great idea. We ought to give it our best shot,” he said. “Despite the high cost, I think it could really do a huge job in terms of reducing congestion and in terms of helping our environment.” Lisa Mascaro, (818) 713-3761 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
