Powered by Firework Talking about controversy regarding cricket in Pakistan, and the name of Umar Akmal often makes the headlines. The Pakistani international recently faced a suspension from the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), and now has been charged with a ban of 3 years from all forms of cricket by the board’s Disciplinary Panel on accusations of corruption in Pakistan Super League.Advertisement Image Courtesy: ReutersFollowing Umar Akmal’s suspension from his PSL franchise Quetta Gladiators back in Febuary for allegedly participating in spot fixing matches, PCB referred the case to former Lahore High Court Judge Fazal-e-Miran Chauhan, who is the retired Chairman of the Disciplinary Panel Justice of PCB.Akmal had until 31st March to make a challenge against the report that the PCB had sent to him, but the occasional wicket keeping batsman did not claim anything in his defence.Advertisement After the hearing on Monday, the 29 year old was charged for breaching the Article 2.4.4 of PCB’s Anti-Corruption Code, which reads: “Failing to disclose to the PCB Vigilance and Security Department (without unnecessary delay) full details of any approaches or invitations received by the Participant to engage in corrupt conduct under this Anti-Corruption Code.”“Umar Akmal handed three-year ban from all cricket by Chairman of the Disciplinary Panel Mr Justice (retired) Fazal-e-Miran Chauhan,” the news was confirmed on the official Twitter handle of PCB Media.Advertisement Akmal has been a stalwart of Pakistan’s ODI squad, having made 121 international appearances since his debut against Sri Lanka in August 2009. Sch a lengthy ban on the player brought in lamentation from PCB’s Anti-Corruption and Security Asif Mahmood.“The PCB doesn’t take any pleasure in seeing a promising international cricketer being declared ineligible for three years on corruption charges, but this is once again a timely reminder to all who think they can get away by breaching the anti-corruption code,” Mahmood said.Former captain and cricket coach Javed Miandad expressed his acquiescence of the decision, saying that player who involve in match-fixing should face severe penalty.“Spot-fixers should be hanged because it is similar to killing someone and so the punishment should also be on the same lines. An example should be set so that no player even thinks about doing something like this,” Miandad spoke in his YouTube channel.Retired Pakistani international star Ramiz Raja also responded to the decision with a tweet.If you like reading about MMA, make sure you check out Also follow India’s biggest arm wrestling tournament at ProPanja.comAlso read-Sports India Exclusive:Manju Rani: I have won over relatives who weren’t initially supportive of my boxing careerIOS Sports launches its digital wing “Influrate” Advertisementlast_img read more

Bringing Style & Confidence to Cancer Patients

first_imgBy Michele J. KuhnRED BANK – Michele K. Lawson isn’t the type of person who volunteers for a short time and then goes onto something else.Lawson, a hair stylist at the Hair Company on White Street, has been a volunteer for the American Cancer Society (ACS) since 2001, giving her talents to women needing wigs and a lesson in makeup for the organization’s Look Good …Feel Better program. Last year, she was awarded the cancer society’s Sunshine Award, which recognizes an individual in the state who has “displayed exceptional dedication and outstanding volunteer leadership” with the program. She was lauded for “going the extra mile” to meet with patients at the ACS office, hospital and the salon where she works and enthusiastically promoting the program which helps patients learn beauty techniques to manage “appearance-related” side effects of cancer treatment.Michele K. Lawson, an American Cancer Society volunteer since 2001, uses her talents as a hair stylist for the Look Good … Feel Better program.The impetus for Lawson to become a volunteer came about while she was visiting her stepmother in Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York City when her stepmom was being treated for colon cancer. Lawson saw a session of the Look Good…Feel Better program being held and knew immediately she could help others. She contacted ACS in Monmouth County and began first as a program facilitator and then – putting her talents to use – as a wig stylist. She now holds wig clinics on a regular basis, helping women keep their wigs in good condition and in style and stresses that every female cancer patient should know that they can get a free wig through the ACS.The 45-year-old attributes her longevity in the program to the deep emotion she felt when her stepmother, who was “like a mother” to her, died at age 55. “It totally changed my life forever. Cancer has made a great impact on my family,” Lawson said.Lawson said she felt “completely out of control” when her stepmother was diagnosed with cancer. “I couldn’t help her. I couldn’t change anything … This is where I can help.”Even though she is a single mother of three boys, ages 18, 16 and 14, “works every day in this economy” and doesn’t really have extra time to volunteer, Lawson “can’t imagine quitting … I can’t imagine not helping these people,” she said. “Instead of volunteering less, I think I actually volunteer more now.“Personally, I love what I do as a hair stylist and makeup artist … It’s my forte. Being able to help people with my craft is an easy way of giving back,” Lawson said.Her sons also give back to the American Cancer Society. They have been volunteering their time for many years, loading or unloading trucks, participating in Making Strides For Breast Cancer walk and doing whatever they can to assist.The salon where Lawson works also is in involved in the fight against cancer. The Hair Company is one of the Red Bank businesses that supports the Paint the Town Pink effort by Meridian Health Systems, Lawson said. The salon’s windows are decorated to help women remember to get their mammograms and a pink piggy bank is located in the shop to accept donations to help fund the diagnostic tests for those who are uninsured or underinsured.In the next few weeks, when she is scheduled to get her mammogram, Lawson expects to be one of the people helped by the Paint the Town Pink campaign. “I have my doctor’s appointment coming. I don’t have health insurance and I will be using one of those vouchers for my next mammogram,” she said. “I have to or I will be skipping my mammogram and I don’t want to do that.”last_img read more

The salvage poker that guides the way of Espanyol

first_imgIn the Leagues with the current format, of three descents, 20 teams and three points per victory, no one was saved after adding 11 points in the first round. But they did teams that arrived at the equator of the competition in a situation similar to that of Espanyol. LaLiga Santander* Data updated as of January 18, 2020 Osasuna 2008-09Also in the last game, and nothing less than defeating Real Madrid 2-1, he achieved the Osasuna permanence, which in the 2008-09 academic year concluded the first round with 13 pntos, seven of the first that obtained the permanence. Like Zaragoza, LaLiga finished with 43 units, making 30 in the second round and remaining only one of the descent, which marked Betis. It was the year, in Espanyol, of the miracle of Pochettino.Mallorca 2004-05Six points after salvation, having added 14 in the entire first round, Mallorca was planted after day 19 of three years ago. It was enough to add another 25 in the second round to save with 39. It even earned him a draw on the last day. The bar was low.Rayo Vallecano 2001-02The case of more placid salvation after a disastrous first round was starred in this Ray, which was at this point 16 points and was five of the seventeenth, and that four days from the end was already out. He finished eleventh, with 49, and with a final sprint of five consecutive victories that left the descent to ten points.Royal Society 2000-01And the first of the cases with the current format was carried out by the Royal in the second round of the 2000-01 academic year, which came with 14 points and five of the permanence. He added 29 to finish 43, just two of the descent, because on the last day he fell to Osasuna (0-1). Another that not only was saved, but suffered less than expected.center_img Zaragoza 2011-12The closest example is that of Zaragoza of the 2011-12 season, which ended the first period with 12 points, seven of salvation, and ended up saving with 43, sixteenth. Of course, he had to wait until the last day, with a 0-2 in Getafe, to stay in Primera at the expense, precisely, of Villarreal, rival today of the parakeets.last_img read more

MOE Gives Public Schools US$1.9M

first_imgShare this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window) The Ministry of Education (MOE) over the weekend began the disbursement of over US$ 1.9 million to 2,500 public schools across the country.The money is to among other things enable school authorities procure instructional materials without waiting for government to initiate the process.According to the Director for Instruction at the Ministry of Education, David W. Basay, the disbursement of said fund is currently going on among public schools throughout the 15 counties.He made the disclosure recently at the Ministry of Information regular press briefing in Monrovia.He said the decision to distribute the money to school authorities throughout the country was reached based on the delay in the reopening of schools this year, as a result of lack of instructional materials.He then noted that the MOE will play a monitoring role in the implementation of the money.He disclosed further that the new public schools management system is to decentralize the procurement of instructional resources which has been centralized over decades.Mr. Basay also noted that the MOE has trained over 2,560 school teachers and administrators in the area of school management, preparation of school budget, among others. Director Bassa disclosed that 41 schools are under construction while 16 have already been completed in seven of the 15 counties. Those counties are Grand Cape Mount, Bong, Bomi, Rivercess, Grand Bassa, Margibi and Montserrado.He noted that 10 schools are going through substantial completion routines, while the rest are expected to be completed by June, next year in the remaining counties.Meanwhile Mr. Basay said those decisions taken and implemented by the MOE are well on course in keeping with policies of the Agenda for Transformation.In a related development, the Ministry says since the coming to power of the Unity Party-led government, it has constructed about 16 schools in seven of the 15 counties.According to Mr. Basay, the schools are in Bomi, Grand Cape Mount, Bong, Montserrado, Grand Bassa, Rivercess and Margibi counties.Basay indicated that the schools, which construction started more than two years ago, are part of the 41 institutions the government plans to construct in all 15 counties.He said as part of the construction exercise, 10 additional schools are nearing completion. The rest, he said would be completed in the remaining counties by June, next year.Basay noted that furniture for all completed schools are available, and that 12 teachers Housing Units have also been completed and furnished.“This is to ensure that teachers who are being assigned in rural areas can be rest assured that they would be provided some incentives,” he pointed out.Meanwhile the Ministry has said it would begin distributing 3.8 million learning materials to schools throughout the country by next month.According to Mr. Basay, one million text books are earmarked for grades 5 to 9, while 1.3 million readers for grades 1 to 4 and over 1.5 million instructional materials for grades 1-9.He noted that the training of 2,560 school principals and school management teams has been completed and accounts opened for the disbursement of direct school grants to public education schools.“We want to make sure that those textbooks go with the school curriculum and our kids can now relate to what they read,” Basay said.last_img read more

Bank of Baroda introduces Remote Deposit Capture to Guyana

first_imgWith the aim of improving its services, Bank of Baroda has introduced a new banking facility, Remote Deposit Capture, which will now see customers saving trips to the bank when conducting certain transactions.Bank of Baroda, GeorgetownThis announcement was made by a director of the bank at an event held by the financial institution on Friday evening at the Georgetown Club.Remote Deposit Capture is a technology-based method which allows banks to accept cheques for deposit using electronic images instead of the original physical paper versions. With this feature, customers can use their computers, tablets or smartphones to deposit their cheques instead of having to make trips to the bank in order to conduct transactions.The Director indicated that this facility is only designed for the deposit of US cheques to customers’ local bank accounts.“It has been our endeavour to bring to customers the best of the products. In that context, today we want to put in place a facility which we call Remote Deposit Capture…what happens is those people who are depositing a US cheque in their bank account here…normally what happens is that cheque physically travels to the USA and then we present it to the clearing system there. With this particular instrument, the transport of the physical cheque will not be there. The image will be scanned here and it will be ready for being lodged in the first clearing,” the Director stated.According to the Director, in addition to enjoying a convenient way of depositing their US cheques, the bank’s customers utilising this facility will also benefit from a low transaction processing fee.“The benefit to the customer [includes] faster payment being credited to the account, we have certain norms around five days to seven days we have to keep, and it will be at a reduced cost because the courier charge [or] transport cost will not be there”.Governor of Bank of Guyana, Dr Gobind Ganga, speaking at the event lauded Bank of Baroda for serving Guyana’s market for over 50 years despite its challenges and for utilising its potential to improve its services and products to Guyanese.“You wouldn’t expect any bank in Guyana at this time to have such a system available where a physical cheque can be internationally cleared within a very, very short period of time. For that, Bank of Baroda should be applauded,” Dr Ganga said.He commended the institution for taking this big step in advancing Guyana’s financial services offered to the market.“This is universal, this is global, and wholeheartedly they have indicated their support to us here in Guyana to have such a system be put in place…so while you are sitting there, you could be doing your banking business, and that is what we are looking forward to…because a few years back we started to modernise our system and part of our modernisation would also be in terms of utilising whatever service is available not only to make life easy to big customers and to the banks in terms of movement of money but also in terms of what the local, in terms of the retail, the small men, or the small women, all would be able to do with respect to the movement of money in terms of payment, intermediation…”Bank of Baroda is an India-based, State-owned entity, with a network of 9583 branches spanning 23 countries.Just a year ago, the financial institution had announced that it was going to be pulling out from Guyana’s shores. According to reports from the Financial Express, the banking institution was looking to divest its entire 100 per cent stake in its Bank of Baroda Guyana Inc subsidiary through investment bankers. However, the bank has since reversed that decision.last_img read more

Hundreds of acres of rice infested with bugs

first_imgClose to 15 rice farmers and 120 acres of land are currently affected in what appears to be a termite infestation on the present rice crop in villages along the West Coast of Demerara. Hague, Den Amstel, and several other villages appear to be hardest hit.According to the farmers, termites began feeding on their crops about one month ago. Omar Dhanny, a farmer who cultivates about seven acres of land at Hague, said, “A lot of farmers struggling with the same problem. Nobody don’t really know what to do; and the research, we report this thing to the GRDB, (Guyana Rice Development Board) and they sent two extension officers, but nobody like scientists didn’t come around as yet to assist us with our struggles”.He added, “We farmers nah got that qualifications…they got to get somebody with that knowledge to just check it out”.Dhanny said he and other farmers have exhausted almost every effort to address the situation, but to no avail. In the same breath, he explained how much theOne of the affected rice fieldsinsects have already cost him.“This here affects me a lot, because this amount of rice here what damage for me, I already (gone) through all the doses of fertiliser and I already sprayed about six times. If you calculate, it is a lot of money, and nobody don’t know if we gonna get anything from the Rice Development Board,” he pointed out.The farmer noted that extension officers from the GRDB Office in Region Three had visited and advised that they spray the crops with a specific pesticide, but this remedy also failed.Additionally, he said an ex-staffer who was attached to the National Agricultural Research and Extension Institute (NAREI) has been trying to help the farmers identify the issue and, hopefully, find a solution.Dhanny informed that the ex-NAREI official had said there is some brown plant hopper sucking the rice. “They find that some are going on the rice lands, and he recommend some drug for us to spray. We try the drugs already for about two days now”.Another farmer, Ganga Persaud, who has been planting rice for about 60 years in the same area, noted that he has never seen such a devastating termite.Persaud explained that he fears the termite may have an immense effect on the entire rice industry.He stated, “We had this guy from NAREI that came and he captured a few insects, which was like tiny brown grass hopper. He tell us that the insects is go down into the plant soil and suck away the nutrients, which causes the plants to lose their colour and so on”.The frustrated farmer added that when officials from the GRDB Office in Region Three visited their farm lands, they did not find anything, but merely recommended a pesticide.Furthermore, “I plant rice and it is my main source of income. If the people does not come to look after it, we may suffer immensely…the entire rice industry in the country may suffer,” the man predicted.He argued that merely taking samples is not good enough; in this regard, he thinksThis image shows the discoloration of the rice crops which are stuntedagronomists and plant pathologists have failed to give answers.In an almost frightened tone the farmer related, “It seems as if the insects have gained resilience against pesticides, because we have tried almost everything…we can till the soil, but we cannot get rid of these things”.It is against that backdrop that the farmers are calling for urgent attention to be given to the specific situation. Several efforts made by this newspaper to contact the GRDB proved futile.last_img read more

first_imgPresidential candidate Martin McGuinness has accused RTE star Gay Byrne of not being man enough to call him a liar to his face – after the pair met on a Donegal beach.The politician and the chat show host both have holiday homes in West Donegal.The Sinn Fein man revealed how they met but Gaybo was always as ‘nice as pie’ during the encounter. “He was as nice as pie…if he was a man…he would have said it to my face,” said McGuinness.The former Late Late Show host, 77, this week claimed that McGuinness and Gerry Adams were “consistent liars” who were “trained to lie.”McGuiness, 61, said he had met Byrne while he was out walking with his wife and Byrne was out walking alone.McGuinness said he would now be reluctant to be ever interviewed by the RTE man ever again after his remarks about his past. “He has such an opinion of me, I don’t see why I should.“Although, I’ve never been one to walk away form a debate,” he said.EndsMCGUINNESS ACCUSES GAYBO OF NOT BEING A MAN AFTER DONEGAL BEACH MEETING was last modified: September 28th, 2011 by StephenShare 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:Gay Byrnemartin mcguinnessSinn Feinlast_img read more
