#KicksStalker: High schooler LaMelo Ball gets signature shoe

first_imgOSG plea to revoke ABS-CBN franchise ‘a duplicitous move’ – Lacson NCAA spokeswoman Emily James said in an email to The Associated Press that she could not speak specifically about LaMelo Ball but that his eligibility could be at risk if he directly profits from shoe sales.“Generally speaking, a college athlete or prospect paid for use of their athletics reputation or ability risks their future eligibility in that sport,” James said. “This includes profiting from the sale of items bearing the young person’s name. NCAA rules, however, do allow prospects to promote commercial products prior to enrollment provided it is not for pay.”LaVar Ball told ESPN on Thursday that his son’s amateur status is not a concern at the moment.“Who cares? If he can’t play, then he can’t play. It doesn’t mean he’ll stop working out and getting better,” he said. “Maybe in two years they’ll change the rule and he’ll be able to the NBA straight out of high school.”LaMelo Ball, a 6-foot-3 guard, averaged 26.7 points and 10 assists as a sophomore last year.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Filipinos turn Taal Volcano ash, plastic trash into bricks PLAY LIST 01:40Filipinos turn Taal Volcano ash, plastic trash into bricks01:32Taal Volcano watch: Island fissures steaming, lake water receding02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite National Historical team rescues Amorsolos, artifacts from Taal Police seize P68-M worth of ‘shabu’ in Pasay MOST READ LATEST STORIES Marcosian mode: Duterte threatens to arrest water execs ‘one night’ Bishop Baylon encourages faithful in Albay to help Taal evacuees LaMelo Ball, who plays for Chino Hills High School, would still be eligible under California Interscholastic Federation rules as long as he’s not wearing his team’s uniform or logo while appearing in any advertisements or promotions for the shoe.The bigger concern is with the NCAA.

Despicable Kissoon instigating an insurrection against Jagdeo (Pt 2)

first_imgDear Editor,As written in Freddie Kissoon’s column on Monday, April 23, 2018, “I have people that I call personal friends in the Alliance For Change’s leadership but my deeply honest opinion if they ask me is that the ground is shaky. I don’t know if the fulcrums could be strengthened before 2020 but I honestly doubt it. As for Indians voting for the A Partnership for National Unity (APNU), that is not even a remote possibility. APNU is not a party for Guyana’s future. I don’t see leadership qualities in the APNU. The People’s National Congress (PNC) may get into trouble in 2020 for what it did to David Hinds and Lincoln Lewis. When you talk about stupidity then the ouster of those two men is an unadulterated act of stupidity… For the People’s Progressive Party (PPP), the closeness to victory will depend on who is their presidential candidate. Once it is Bharrat Jagdeo, the PPP will lose the game. The stakes are too high with oil and a rebirth of big power rivalry in international relations for the West to sit down and allow Jagdeo to govern again… My understanding is that there is an anti-Jagdeo group of planners working out from the Cheddi Jagan Research Library. If they are planning to make their move, if and when Jagdeo answers the question, then they are big fools. They are stupid to think Jagdeo is going to define his position before the Caribbean Court of Justice rules on the matter. Commonsense should dictate they organise against him ASAP!” Kissoon has repeatedly said while he will not be campaigning for the APNU/AFC in 2020, he will do whatever it takes to prevent a PPP/Civic victory. But this latest salvo aimed at instigating an insurrection against Jagdeo within the PPP/C should be viewed as another desperate attempt to propagate the lies being peddled by some in the Administration that the ABC countries have guaranteed the APNU/AFC another five years in Government.Let me state categorically that I do not believe the ABC countries played any role in the defeat of the PPP/C at the 2015 General Election. It was a combination of PNC vote-rigging as evident by the discovery of fake Statements of Poll by the Guyana Elections Commission’s (GECOM) Chief Elections Officer, Keith Lowenfield; a sizable number of complacent PPP supporters who stayed home and did not vote; and the many sugar workers and rice farmers who were duped into voting for the APNU/AFC because they were promised a 20 per cent increase and $9000 a bag for paddy.Had GECOM not declined the PPP/C request for a recount of votes in Region Eight (Potaro-Siparuni), the APNU/AFC would now be a minority Government. It is time for the courts to rule on the Elections Petition filed by the PPP/C on this matter.Freddie’s personal attacks against Bharrat Jagdeo will not succeed, and certainly will not influence the outcome of our party’s Presidential Candidate. That will be determined by the Executive Committee of the PPP. And despite the lies that are propagated by Freddie Kissoon and the APNU/AFC Administration, there is no evidence that the ABC countries would risk their collective credibility to prop up an unpopular government that is corrupt; inept and undemocratic. By now, they too must be praying for a PPP/C landslide in 2020.Sincerely,Harry GillPPP/C Member ofParliamentlast_img read more

Jagdeo outlines criteria for next PPP presidential candidate

first_imgSovereignty of the people caseBy Jarryl BryanThe decision in the case of the Attorney General versus Cedric Richardson was announced on Tuesday amid much public interest.Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo, who was the subject of much debate regarding the ruling, remains unmoved by the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) upholding, among other things, term limits for Guyana’s Presidents by six to one.PPP General Secretary Bharrat JagdeoDuring a press conference on Tuesday, Jagdeo maintained that despite the ruling, he would remain the General Secretary (GS) of the People’s Progressive Party (PPP). He noted that the ruling has nothing to do with his position as GS.Jagdeo pointed out also that when he left office as President in 2011, it was in keeping with the law on presidential term limits. The former President stressed that he would continue to abide by the law and that at the appropriate time, the PPP would select a presidential candidate.“The CCJ ruling has been interpreted in a particular way, but it is still our law,” Jagdeo stressed. “As someone who has always complied with our law, the same situation remains today.”In fact, Jagdeo made it clear that he was not keen on certain aspects of being President. While he has no problem with the idea of listening and addressing the concerns of the ordinary people as President, he admitted he disliked the superficial form and ceremonial trappings that came with the position.Jagdeo, who served as President from 1999 to 2011, noted that he would continue to play an integral part in the Party. According to the General Secretary, he will continue to broaden the demographics of persons coming to his party and maintained that if the PPP/C returned to Government he would play a formal role.Jagdeo refused to speculate on what specific role he would play in the next PPP/C Government. He would only say that he would contribute through helping to guide and formulate policy, according to his experience. While Jagdeo noted that the Party has never placed all its eggs in one basket when it came to the electoral ticket, he declined to cite potential presidential candidates. However, he did highlight that the Party’s next presidential candidate will have to be a “hard-working” person, who is courageous and has good management skills.“I see many people I like for that position. These people are hard-working, have great management skills and are courageous. That’s what I think a President should be,” Jagdeo related.When he was asked directly whether he would support former President Donald Ramotar as the Party’s presidential candidate, Jagdeo would only reiterate his ideals of presidential criteria.The caseThe constitutional challenge case brought by Georgetown resident Cedric Richardson in February 2015 had sought the Court’s interpretation of the National Assembly’s changes to Article 90, as those related to four restraints on the freedom of choice by citizens at national elections.Richardson argued, through his lawyers, Emily Dodson and Shawn Allicock, that the amendment – Article 17 of 2000 – unconstitutionally curtails and restricts his sovereign and democratic right and freedom as a qualified elector to elect a specific person of his choice as the Executive President of the Cooperative Republic of Guyana.Richardson had also contended that the limit was unconstitutional and illegal. He sought the Court’s interpretation to determine whether a referendum on the amendment should not have been held, instead of the two-thirds majority in the National Assembly having the power to decide the limit on the number of terms.Former acting Chief Justice Ian Chang had ruled in July 2015 that the alteration of Article 90 by Act No 17 of 2000, in substance and effect, undoubtedly diminished the democratic rights of the electorate in electing a person of their own choice as President.He had noted that such an amendment needs a referendum and is invalid and without legal effect for reason of non-compliance. He further ruled that Act 17 of 2000 seeks to dilute the pre-existing democratic rights of the electorate to elect a President of their choice. As such, while the Constitution provides for representative democracy, such representative democracy cannot encroach on popular sovereignty from which it derives and which is entrenched by the requirement of the referendum.However, the High Court’s decision was appealed by the Attorney General’s Chambers and former Speaker of the House Raphael Trotman, both of whom were named as respondents in the court action. They asked that the ruling be “wholly set aside”.last_img read more

Remember when Liverpool signed midfielders of this quality for just £16.7m?

first_img1 On this day in 2004, Liverpool announced the double signing of La Liga stars Xabi Alonso and Luis Garcia.The two players, 22 and 26, respectively, joined the Merseysiders for a combined £16.7million fee from Real Sociedad and Barcelona, as Rafael Benitez looked to bring some Spanish style to Anfield.And they would both prove to be well worth the outlay as they had a huge impact on the team and their fans.Alonso’s incredible passing ability was notable from an early age as he took delight in his role as a deep-lying midfielder and with La Real, helping them to a second place finish in La Liga back in 2003, just two points behind Real Madrid.A year later after continuing to excel and impressing at international level, Benitez swooped, beating Real Madrid to his signature.His technical brilliance shone immediately at Anfield but a broken ankle received when tackled by Frank Lampard cost him three month of his debut season. He made up for it in style though.Alonso’s return to the first-team was the Champions League quarter-final second leg against Juventus and his display helped the Reds claim a 0-0 draw and progression to the semi-finals.Liverpool would only finish the Premier League season in fifth but managed to reach the Champions League final and the Spaniard was a key part of their incredible comeback against AC Milan.Alonso may have missed his penalty but made the score 3-3 as he hit home the rebound from Dida’s save and he put in a stunning display throughout as the Reds won the trophy. Not a bad way to end your first season.He would win another trophy in his second campaign as he helped the Reds to triumph in the 2006 FA Cup final, and he furthered his reputation as a superb technician by scoring from his own half against Luton in the third round of the competition.Alonso’s brilliance in midfield continued but Benitez’s interest in Gareth Barry left the player unsettled at Anfield and after a move failed to materialise in 2008, he reluctantly left the club in 2009 to join Real Madrid in a £30million deal.For Garcia, his career will be forever defined by Liverpool’s run to the Champions League final in 2005.He grabbed the winning goal against Juventus and also hit the controversial winner in the semi-finals against Chelsea – the fourth minute goal was cleared by William Gallas but ruled to be a goal by the referee with camera angles of the incident proving inconclusive.And Garcia would go onto play the full 120 minutes for the Reds as they came from 3-0 down to beat AC Milan on penalties, as he finished the year with 13 goals in 44 games.His impact at Anfield would slowly decrease over the following two seasons but another key goal against Chelsea, this time in a 2006 FA Cup semi-final clash, increased his popularity with the club’s fans as the two teams sparked up a bitter rivalry, but his sending off against West Ham in the Premier League meant he missed the final, which the Reds won.An anterior cruciate ligament injury in January 2007 would mean his last match for the club was during their thrilling 3-6 defeat to Arsenal in the League Cup quarter-final.Even though both exits were tinged with disappointment, both men are still considered heroes on Merseyside.

Swansea City to stick with caretaker boss for the remainder of the season

first_imgSwansea have announced that caretaker manager Alan Curtis will remain in charge for the rest of the seasonCurtis has been in caretaker charge since Swansea sacked Garry Monk on December 9 after a run of only one win in 12 games.Under Curtis’ command, Swansea have won one, drawn two and lost two of their five games and are currently two points above the Barclays Premier League relegation zone.Announcing the appointment on the club’s official website, chairman Huw Jenkins said: “Alan Curtis and the current staff set-up will continue until the end of the season. We firmly believe it is the right decision for Swansea City.It is understood that former boss Brendan Rodgers was Swansea’s preferred choice to succeed Monk.But Rodgers wanted to take an extended break after leaving Liverpool in October and Jenkins’ search for a manager took him to South America, where he met former Argentina, Chile and Athletic Bilbao coach Marcelo Bielsa.Those discussions floundered and Gus Poyet, Roberto di Matteo and Jose Mourinho’s former Chelsea assistant Jose Morais were all strongly linked with the position as Curtis oversaw an improvement in performances.Swansea beat West Brom and drew with West Ham and Crystal Palace, with the two defeats being narrow 2-1 losses at Manchester City and Manchester United.“Alan has been with us through good and bad times and was part of the management team that helped the club secure its Football League status over 12 years ago,” Jenkins said.“He is fully aware of the next important job he has ahead of him to dig deep and find the required levels of performance and motivation to secure our Premier League status – our main goal this season.“We believe there is nobody with more knowledge and experience of the club to do that than Alan Curtis.“He has served Swansea City so well for more than 40 years and played an integral part in our recent success under the likes of Roberto Martinez, Paulo Sousa, Brendan Rodgers, Michael Laudrup and Garry Monk.“We have a person at the helm who fully represents all Swansea City stands for, has the respect of the players and who will provide the calm reassurance and encouragement of our footballing beliefs.“We have all been impressed with the way he has improved performance levels over the last five games.“The players have obviously responded to him because we have seen an uplift in performances.“I know some people will query why we didn’t have a replacement lined up when we parted company with Garry Monk, but we didn’t expect to be in the situation we were in when you look at our position mid-September.“We hoped and expected things would eventually turn around. When they didn’t, we felt we had to act quickly in the best interests of the club going forward.”Jenkins admitted that appointing a manager had proved a difficult exercise over the past month.“Finding a replacement hasn’t been easy because we didn’t want to make a short-term decision that would be detrimental to the club long-term,” Jenkins said.“It’s a unique situation for us and I think we are only now appreciating what other Premier League clubs in our position have gone through in the last five years.“We’ve spoken to a lot of potential managers. Some didn’t want to leave the clubs they were at this late stage in the season, while others didn’t want to put their reputation on the line by joining a club at the wrong end of the table.“In the end, we felt the best decision was to keep things in-house and change as little as we can until taking stock in the summer.“We need to make sure we stick together as players, staff and supporters and give everything as one.“We still have plenty of work left to do and being part of the Premier League is vital to that continued development.”Curtis’ first game in full-time charge will be the FA Cup third-round tie at Oxford on Sunday, before two Premier League games at home against Sunderland and Watford the following week Alan Curtis 1last_img read more

“CHILDREN WITH DISABILITIES WILL BENEFIT FROM MAJOR NEW SUPPORTS SCHEME” – AVRIL MCMONAGLE

first_imgEDUCATION: A major new programme aimed at providing supports to children with disabilities in pre-school will commence in September this year. The model of supports has secured a Government investment of €17m in 2016, rising to €40m annually from 2020.  It is expected that Donegal’s 145 early childhood services will engage with the new scheme which will take in the region of 3 years to implement fully. Avril McMonagle, Manager of Donegal County Childcare, comments that this development is hugely positive and long overdue.“We have been calling for additional dedicated supports for children with disabilities to access the free Early Childhood Care and Education programme since its launch over six years ago.“Finally, we have a support model to help overcome the barriers that so many children have experienced in getting access to a high quality, fully inclusive mainstream pre-school provision in Donegal’“A positive feature of the new Access and Inclusion Model is that it does not depend on children having a formal diagnosis to access supports to attend pre-school. Instead it focuses on children’s unique developmental level, their abilities and their needs.” The seven levels of supports within the model range from universal supports to highly targeted supports, based on the needs of the individual child.The model includes funded training opportunities for early childhood educators; grants for specialised equipment, appliances and minor alterations, increased funding capitation for children with complex needs, as well as access to therapeutic early intervention.Donegal County Childcare are facilitating 3 information sessions in Inis Eoghain, Letterkenny and Donegal Town to inform parents and childcare providers about the new model and how to access supports from September 2016.http://www.eventbrite.ie/o/childcare-committee-county-donegal-10632564578  “CHILDREN WITH DISABILITIES WILL BENEFIT FROM MAJOR NEW SUPPORTS SCHEME” – AVRIL MCMONAGLE was last modified: June 10th, 2016 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Avril McMonagleDCCCDisabilityFeatureslaunchednewsSchemelast_img read more

GAA NOTES: BUNCRANA

first_imgBuncrana GAA Notes For Week Ending Sunday 8th February 2012Senior Men Football: Hard luck to the senior men’s side who lost by a single point away to Carndonagh on Saturday evening in front of a big crowd. Carndonagh got the march on us with two early goals, no doubt helped by the work done to avoid relegation earlier in the year. Our lads put in a great shift and were it not for some early season wayward shooting and a great save from the Carndonagh keeper the result would have been much different. Great spirit and effort was shown though and with room for improvement and fitness in some quarters, all augurs well for the rest of the season. The reserve side recorded an excellent away victory against a strong Carn side. Great to see Pauric McLaughlin back in a Buncrana jersey, Ryan Curran made his senior debut at corner forward and chipped in with a great goal in the opening minutes. In defence minor player of the year Diarmuid Porter was rock solid at full back ably assisted by another debutant Stephen Doherty. The younger lads like Mark O’Connell and Sean Doherty grew into the game as it went on, and with more lads waiting in wings to get their chance this side can look forward to a successful season. Training continues on Tuesday night at 7.30 and everyone is welcome. Stay Awake Night: As a Club we are continuously striving to improve the facilities and opportunities for our young people. In order to do this, we must fundraise and we do appreciate your continued support.

It was their first competitive game and their hard work was reflected in the winning score and what was an entertaining game of skill and endurance. It was great to have the return of our County girl, Mary Theresa Doherty who was a great example to her team. She led the girls into a a first half that they very quickly seemed to have control of. The girls from Convoy had a very strong midfield and put some pressure on us, however our defence was not ready to let anyone past them. Lia Gallianagh and Niamh Murphy in particular shone through. The second half seen the visitors have some control, however our high scoring from mainly Chloe Grant, Eimear Clerkin and Catherin Loughrey made it a game of no return. Well done to all the girls, who despite the fact they were well ahead, they continued to work hard and held control right till the end. The girls left the Scarvey very content with their 5-9 to 1-3 win.Gaelic4Girls: Gaelic football for girls under 10, 12, 14, 16 and 18’s every Monday night from 7.00pm – 8.30pm in the Scarvey.

Once again, the experienced Malin side took the lead in the first half, but the youthful Buncrana side did not make it easy for them. The girls are beginning to show the talent and experience they all have as the nerves settle and they begin to form as a team. The second half saw the Buncrana ladies push Malin to a tight finish; with the girls taking control of the ball for the last 15 minutes of the match. Even though Buncrana where missing some key players, it was a good performance by all who took part. If we were to pick out one player to mention, it woulds have to be Joanne Buck; who (while only being introduced to the sport very recently) showed how hard work, determination and putting the effort in at training can give a major return to the team and shows us all what being part of a team is all about!

Karisa has now scored 10 league goals this seasonThe match started brightly and Vipers got the first chance of the game when Ssekisambu robbed KCCA defender Paul Misamli of the ball but selfishly shot off defender Timothy Awanyi while having an option of playing in either Dan Sserunkuma or Milton Karisa who would have been one on one with the goalkeeper.KCCA got their first sight of the Vipers goal on six minutes but Isaac Kirabira shot wide of the target after he was teed up by Mustapha Kizza down the left.The first goal came on 12 minutes when KCCA striker Shaban Muhammad rose and met a Timothy Awanyi long ball from a free kick and Vipers’ keeper Ismail Watenga misjudged the cross leaving the striker to head into an empty net hence silencing the home crowd that had been booing him from the start.Vipers should have equalized two minutes later only for Dan Sserunkuma to fail and shot the ball that got stuck in his legs, in the net after good work by Ssekisambu down the right which saw him beat Paul Musamali and leaving him for dead.Seconds later, Karisa sent the home fans into a frenzy as KCCA failed to clear their lines following a poor shot from outside the area by Tadeo Lwanga and the ball fell into the path of the dread locked midfielder who expertly placed it in the bottom corner past Lukwago.The home team felt Shaban should have been sent off two minutes after the equalizer when he head butted Tadeo Lwanga in the center circle after the later had pulled down Allan Okello as KCCA tried to execute a counter attack but referee Ali Sabir only flashed out a yellow card for the youthful striker much to the dis-test of the Venoms’ faithful.Much of the rest of the first half was played without further goal mouth action until Vipers’ captain Nicholas Wadada unleashed a ferocious shot from 30 yards on 45 minutes but Lukwago in the KCCA goal pulled off a spectacular save as he tipped the ball over for a corner.Straight after the fourth official, Brian Miro signaled for two minutes additional time to the half, Ssekisambu unleashed a fierce shot from outside the area and it hit the back of the net to make it 2-1 to the home side, after good combination play by Vipers in the KCCA FC penalty area.KCCA FC head coach, Mike Mutebi introduced striker Patrick Kaddu minutes after the re-start in place of the ineffective Allan Okello to try and exert more pressure on Vipers and it nearly paid off four minutes later only for the striker to shot wide of the target from close range.On the hour mark, Watenga miss judged a low cross from Mustapha Kizaa but Paul Mucurezi failed to take advantage as the ball went out begging for only a corner kick with the goalkeeper floored helplessly.On 54 minutes, Dan Sserunkuma nearly made it 3-1 to the hosts but his close range back heel was cleared off the line by KCCA captain Timothy Awanyi following a penalty area scramble.Three minutes later, Shaban missed a golden opportunity to grab the equalizer as he headed wide a delightful cross from the ever green Julius Poloto.KCCA thought they had got the elusive second goal on 62 minutes but Patrick Kaddu’s goal bound header was cleared off the line by Nicholas Wadada after goalkeeper Watenga was clearly beaten by a Mustapha Kizza corner.With ten minutes to go, Vipers scored a third goal when Milton Karisa completed his brace, tapping home a Yayo Lutimba low cross to take his season’s tally to 10.Three minutes later, Shaban scored his 12 goal of the season, a beautiful overhead kick after controlling a Mustapha Kizza cross into the area. Despite a nervy ending, KCCA could not find the third goal and Vipers matched onto victroy which ensures their status as league leaders for at least 24 hours.Vipers now have 52 points from 25 games, three ahead of second placed SC Villa who play Mbarara City at Kakyeka Stadium on Saturday but the Jogoos will need to win by three clear goals to regain top spot.KCCA FC remains third with 28 points from 25 games and will now have to win all their five matches and pray that the top two drop points in two or more games so as to win a third crown on the trot.KCCA will be back in action on Saturday when they travel to Mwerere to face Nelson Ssenkatuka’s Bright Stars.In the other game played on Friday, Onduparaka thrashed Police 5-0 at Namboole to move level on points with Kirinya JSS in third.Starting Line ups:KCCA FC:Charles Lukwago, Filbert Obenchan, Timothy Awanyi, Paul Musamali, Lawrence Bukenya, Isaac Kirabira, Mustapha Kizza, Julius Poloto, Allan okello, Paul Mucurezi, Shaban Muhammad.Vipers SC:Ismail Watenga, Nicholas Wadada, Halid Lwaliwa, Geoffrey Wasswa, Tadeo Lwanga, Erisa Ssekisambu, Duncan Sseninde, Milton Karia, Dan Sserunkuma, Bashir Asiku, Moses Waiswa.
