A bit expensive but for a once-in-a-lifetime event, it doesn’t matter,” he told AFP.Some locals turned up at the stadium on Saturday morning, hours before the 7:00 pm (1200 GMT) start to soak up the atmosphere.Bani, who like many Indonesians goes by one name, arrived with his wife and two kids, telling AFP he wanted “to feel the euphoria, see the preparations”.“The people are also involved,” Bani, 36, added. “You can see people are decorating their neighbourhoods with the Games’ logos.”Jakarta might be stealing the limelight but several thousand athletes, officials and VIPs are also expected at a welcome evening Saturday staged in the huge Sports City complex of Palembang.As well as performances by local and international musicians, Jakarta’s opening ceremony will be broadcast live on a huge screen outside the main stadium of the city that will host 13 of the sporting events, including shooting, bowling and beach volleyball.About 18,000 athletes and officials from 45 Asian countries will be at the Asiad, organisers said, looking to make their mark across a range of sports including bridge, jetski, paragliding and sepak takraw, as well as nearly the full Olympic programme.

Stop disrespecting water consumers in Region 5

first_imgDear Editor,For the past two plus years, since I have been residing in Cotton Tree, West Coast Berbice in Region Five, consumers have been suffering from water stoppages at least twice daily, from between 12 noon and 13:00h every day for a few hours, then the water cuts off from about 20:30h every night for the entire night until 05:00h the next day.Once I was told that water had to be conserved during the dry season. But we have not had a dry season here for a very long time; and even during the rainy season, Guyana Water Inc (GWI) still cuts off water to consumers during critical hours of the day. In addition, every time we have a blackout, which is often, the water is cut off until the power returns.This is totally unaccepted. I just called Customer Service at Onverwagt, and the young lady who answered the phone was very much in the dark. She was not aware of any water stoppage in the area. She took my phone number and promised to return my call.I then called the only manager listed for Region Five on the GWI’s website, Mr Loiden Henry. He was on his way to the office and was not aware that water was cut off from consumers in the Cotton Tree area. He said he would have to check with the GWI engineer and call me back. When asked why it is necessary to deny consumers the use of water twice daily, he apologetically explained that GWI is now working to provide a 24-hour service in Region Five similar to what was done recently in New Amsterdam. After a few minutes, he returned my call and explained that GWI was experiencing power outages from GPL, and that they were using their own generators to pump water back into the tanks.Editor, Guyana is a country where the annual rainfall averages 200 centimetres in the Berbice area. Other than incompetence and mismanagement, There are no other reasons why the residents of Region 5 should not be getting 24-hour access to potable water from GWI.The quality of service provided by the Guyana Water Inc in Region Five is very poor, and the Customer Service at Onverwagt is beyond lousy; it is simply nonexistent. If there is a problem in the field, as is the case here, the engineer needs to inform customer service, so that a proper explanation could be given to the paying consumers whenever they call in. If the customer service representative is not armed with this information and therefore cannot satisfy the consumer with a proper explanation of the problem, it not only exposes the incompetence of the system, but it also restricts the functions of that employee to answering incoming telephone calls only.On Saturday, February 10, the water was turned off since 09:30h. I’m still awaiting a return call from the Customer Service representative at Onverwagt.Sincerely,Harry GillPPP/C Memberof Parliamentlast_img read more

Providence Baptist’s US$2m Home for Ebola Orphans Underway

first_imgProvidence Baptist Church, the nation’s oldest church, last month broke ground for the first-ever orphan home for children who survived the deadly Ebola outbreak.The initiative, which took place at the church’s medical center at Bo-Waterside, Grand Cape Mount County, is being spearheaded by the Providence Foundation, Inc.  The project, estimated at US$2m, will cater exclusively to Ebola-made orphans.  The head of the project, Deacon Jehu Richardson, told the gathering the initiative is the church’s contribution to identify with Ebola orphans in the country and as part of its corporate social responsibility.“Everything happens for a purpose and as such, the church has seen the need to restore the hopes of those children who have lost their parents as a result of the deadly scourge,” the soft spoken deacon said.Also speaking, Rev. Dr. Samuel B. Reeves said the first ever ‘state of the art complex’ will be named in honor of two of the church’s outstanding deacons, Fannie C. Reeves and J. Eva George. The proposed ‘Fannie C. Reeves – J. Eva George Children’s Village,’ Dr. Reeves said, represents a milestone in the history of the church  whose focus is on building a church where lives are radically changed and disciples intentionally made.   “This project will help bring up those children in the right and proper way to contribute their quota to the growth and development of the country,” Dr. Reeves asserted.  He used the occasion to call on philanthropic organizations, including the National Oil Company of Liberia (NOCAL), the United States Embassy and other international partners to join the church in executing the project.  Forming a partnership with the project is the Liberia Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church (UMC), represented by Bro. Rudolph Merab  and Rev. Christopher Marshall.  Mr. Merab, on behalf of UMC Bishop John G. Innis, expressed thanks and appreciation for what he described as “a wonderful endeavor.” He later presented a check for US$1,000 as an initial contribution on behalf of the Methodist Church.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Transfer window ends with star loans, not huge deals

first_img0Shares0000Former Inter Milan favourite Mauro Icardi has joined Paris Saint-germain on loan © AFP/File / Alberto PIZZOLIPARIS, France, Sep 3 – The transfer window shut gently across much of Europe with a flurry of loan deals instead of the anticipated bang of a mega-move.Several big-name players did change clubs on loans, including Mauro Icardi moving to Paris Saint-Germain from Inter Milan and Nikola Kalinic and Henrikh Mkhitaryan going out to Roma from Atletico Madrid and Arsenal. The biggest names among the permanent transfer were a pair of Central American veterans: Keylor Navas and Javier Hernandez.The closure of the window interrupted the saga surrounding of Neymar, the world’s most expensive player, who will stay at Paris Saint-Germain having failed to get the move back to Barcelona he craved for.Real Madrid had also been linked with Neymar as well as Manchester United World Cup winner Paul Pogba and Tottenham’s Christian Eriksen as part of the expensive refurbishment of Zinedine Zidane’s squad.Pogba excited some suspicious speculation earlier in the day when he dropped out of France’s two upcoming Euro 2020 qualifiers with an “ankle problem”.Real did do one deal with PSG. It even involved a World Cup winner, but the marquee name was the Madrid club’s backup goalkeeper.Navas, a 32-year-old Costa Rican who won the Champions League three times in Madrid, joined PSG with the younger French international Alphonse Areola moving in the opposite direction on loan.PSG also pulled a late rabbit from their sleeve late with the loan signing of Argentine striker Icardi “with an option to buy.”Icardi was joint top scorer in Serie A in 2017-18, but amid a series of disputes he was stripped of the Inter Milan captaincy last season and barred from full training. He started legal action against the club.Barcelona were not entirely inactive. They extended the contract of attacking midfielder Rafinha and then loaned him to Celta Vigo, where he also spent the 2013-2014 season.Even without a deadline-day blockbuster, La Liga clubs spent a record 1.3 billion euros on players including Eden Hazard, Rodri and Ferland Mendy to Real, Antoine Griezmann and Frenkie de Jong to Barca and Joao Felix to Atletico Madrid.Manchester United sold 29-year-old Italy full-back Matteo Darmian to Parma. The fee was reportedly £1.4 million (1.5 million euros) for an undisclosed fee.– Swapped strikers –Mexican striker Javier Hernandez joined Sevilla from West Ham on a three-year deal. The Spanish club reportedly paid £7.3 million for the 31-year-old ‘Chicharito’.Turkish giants Fenerbahce signed midfielder Luiz Gustavo, a 32-year-old Brazil international and former Bayern Munich man, from Marseille for 7 million euros.Meanwhile, Jerome Boateng did not want to leave.The 30-year-old Bayern and Germany centre back had been reportedly on the point of moving to Juventus to replace captain Giorgio Chiellini who has suffered a serious knee injury. Boateng decided to stay in Munich.Other Italian clubs shuffled strikers.AC Milan swapped players with Eintracht Frankfurt. Croatian forward Ante Rebic moved to Italy on a two-year loan. Portuguese Andre Silva moved the other way.Roma borrowed two old strikers while loaning out a young one.They took Kalinic on loan from Atletico Madrid and Mkhitaryan from Arsenal while sending Patrik Schick to RB Leipzig.Roma said they had an option to buy the 31-year-old Kalinic, a member of the Croatia squad that reached the 2018 World Cup final, for 9 million euros.Mkhitaryan, a 30-year-old Armenian, made his last appearance for the Gunners as a substitute as they were held at home by Tottenham on Sunday.Javier ‘Chicharito’ Hernandez joined Sevilla © AFP / CRISTINA QUICLERLeipzig, who have an option to buy Schick, a 23-year-old Czech international, for 29 million euros, if they qualify for the Champions League again next season.The Bundesliga club were plugging their own gap. Leipzig said they needed another attacker after loaning Jean-Kevin Augustin to Monaco on Sunday.Napoli signed Fernando Llorente on a free transfer. The 34-year old Spanish World Cup winner was a free agent after helping Tottenham to the Champions League final last season.Galatasaray confirmed the signing of veteran Colombian striker Radamel Falcao from Monaco.0Shares0000(Visited 24 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

DONEGAL MAN WITH COUNTRY’S WORST CRIMINAL RECORD IS SENT TO JAIL AGAIN

first_imgA CO DONEGAL man with the worst criminal record in Irish and British judicial history is back behind bars.Eamon Edward John Lynch, 39, from Glentrain in Letterkenny, was jailed at Derry Crown Court.He now has an astonishing 472 previous criminal convictions. His latest offences involved a series of road traffic incidents Derry in 2010.It took the father of eight’s road traffic convictions now stand at 297.He also has previous multiple convictions for burglary, assault, forgery and drugs offences.Judge Piers Grant said Lynch’s record was “appalling” and contained the most significant number of convictions ever to come before him.The court was told Lynch was seen driving a car near Foyle Park which struck two parked cars, two years ago.The owner of one of the cars recognised him. Lynch ran off and was later seen walking across Craigavon Bridge by the police.As they approached him, he threw a set of keys into the River Foyle.He was arrested and when breathalysed was found to be more than twice the legal limit. At the time he had been disqualified from driving until 2023.The court was told Lynch absconded and moved back to Donegal last year where he committed seven further road traffic offences.Judge Grant imposed a 28-month jail sentence and told Lynch he would serve 14 months in custody and would be on licence for the other 14 months.DONEGAL MAN WITH COUNTRY’S WORST CRIMINAL RECORD IS SENT TO JAIL AGAIN was last modified: November 28th, 2012 by BrendaShare 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:DONEGAL MAN WITH COUNTRY’S WORST CRIMINAL RECORD IS SENT TO JAIL AGAINlast_img read more

Club is outlet for young musicians

first_imgSANTA CLARITA – There was a day when you could get a coffee drink and hear some solid punk music. Then those places closed. Then there was the club where teen bands played on special nights designated for younger audiences. Then that closed. In the meantime, sports complexes flourished and every available flat spot with grass is the site of a soccer match, with another team waiting on the sidelines. But for musicians under 21, there was simply no place to play. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREThe top 10 theme park moments of 2019 Command Audio on Oak Avenue in Canyon Country offered studio space for rehearsal and recording, but zoning and permits made holding a concert there out of the question. The city of Santa Clarita sponsors semimonthly concerts through its Third Friday program at its Activities Center, featuring local high school bands. Phil Lantis, who oversees arts programs for the city, acknowledged the shortage of performance venues. In hopes of turning that trend around, brothers Bret and Kevin Lieberman and friend Christopher Cook opened Suburbia, a new all-ages club, on Sept. 30. The club, next to Command Audio at 26846 Oak Ave., will host concerts on weekends under the auspices of the trio’s company, Higher Level Productions. “It’s open to anyone who appreciates music,” Cook said. “We worked the street fair last week and all day long we were hearing from kids that they loved the music and felt it was the first time the city’s embraced them.” All three have day jobs that make this venture possible: Cook works as a graphics artist and part-time recreation aide for the city of Santa Clarita and the Lieberman brothers teach at Golden Valley High School. “We were getting e-mails all the time from kids telling us they had no place to go, that every club was 21 or over,” Bret Lieberman said. “It was all over MySpace (a blog site aimed at teenagers) that there was no place to go in Santa Clarita.” Bret is the frontman, booking the acts and working promotions; Kevin does lights and marketing and rigs the stage for shows; Chris is the designer and sound man. The HLP logo, a laughing Buddha wearing headphones, seems to illustrate the trio’s intent in opening the club. “We wanted to have a place where the kids can have a place to hang out where it’s safe,” Bret Lieberman said. “We welcome parents to walk through and see the place, most of them take a look and leave happy. They can drop their kids off and not worry about them; the bands love it that they can play and we can get a couple hundred kids in here on Fridays and Saturdays to have a good time. “And they can do whatever kind of dancing they want. They don’t have to conform, there’s no five-foot apart requirement, nobody’s watching for freak dancing.” Cover charges vary depending on the events. “All three of us have been involved in the music scene on several levels. We’ve all had our own bands and played in L.A. at the Whiskey or Roxy, but it’s hard to get your friends to support you when they have to drive an hour down there and an hour back. Not all of these kids have transportation, either, so they can get a ride here and enjoy the music.” Higher Level produces all the promotional materials and engineers the shows, leaving the bands to concentrate on their music. “We know how hard it is to make fliers and get the word out,” Cook said. “We try to help them promote themselves.” Concerts are scheduled Oct. 21 and 22 with a special Halloween costume party set for Oct. 28 sponsored by Anthem Board Shop, a local retailer with a large teen clientele. Tickets for the Halloween show are $10 per person. For information on shows or special events, visit their Web site at www.hlproductions.com or go to www.myspace.com/higherlevel.

Volleyball Hosts Final Homestand of the Season

first_img The Drake University volleyball team is back in the Knapp Center for its final two home games of the season, starting with the Southern Illinois Salukis 7 p.m. Friday evening at 7 p.m. on ESPN+.The Bulldogs then take on the Missouri State Bears Saturday evening at 7 p.m. to finish up their season in Des Moines. That game will be on The Valley on ESPN and will also be the Bulldogs’ ‘Senior Night’ as the program honors seniors Cathryn Cheek, Grace Schofield and Sara Jensen.Drake (17-12, 5-9 MVC) is returning home after dropping two matches on the road to Illinois State and Bradley. The Bulldogs played well against the Redbirds, but were not able to take a set against one of the first-place team in the MVC. Undeterred by the loss, the Bulldogs went on to compete against the Braves, taking one set and keeping the others within reach in tough road match.Southern Illinois (5-22, 1-13 MVC) has only one conference win on the season that came against Indiana State in Carbondale, Ill., last Friday. The Bulldogs have already bested the Salukis in three sets earlier this season led by Cathryn Cheek’s (Coppell, Texas) 16 kills and Paige Aspinwall’s (Dayton, Minn.) 35 assists.Missouri State (15-12, 8-6 MVC) is on coming to Des Moines following its game against Northern Iowa on Friday. Going into Cedar Falls, the Bears are on a four-game win streak against Southern Illinois, Valparaiso, Evansville, and Indiana State. Drake will be looking to win its first match against Missouri State since 2010.Following Drake’s final games in the Knapp Center this season, Drake hits the road for a pair games against Indiana State Friday, Nov. 16 and then on to Evansville Saturday, Nov. 17.

first_imgBY EMMET RUSHE: AThis week I am not going to preach to you.There will be no tips or hints.This week is about one thing. Spending time with your family and having fun.If you over indulge, you can get back on track.If you miss a workout, you can make it up again.Don’t stress over things. Don’t alienate yourself from family situations because of dogmatic nutritional advice that tells you something is bad and you cannot have it.If one week out of 52 is going to ruin everything, you need to find a new way of eating.If you really have to get a workout in, go for a walk, go for a run, do a short sprint or M.R.T session.If you want something to really get the sweat going and you want to burn upwards of 900cals, the following workout is just the thing.I did this last week with my Better Bodies challengers and they loved and hated it all at the same time. The workout follows the same pattern as the song ‘The 12 days of Christmas’.It goes as follows.All you need is an exercise mat. 

1) 30 seconds jogging on the spot
2 More Burpees
3 Squat Jumps – jumping
4 lunges – lunging (each leg)
5 prisoner squats – squatting
6 reverse lunges – lunging (each leg)
7 X-body Mountain Climbers – climbing (each leg)
8 Plank to Press – pressing
9 Push ups – pushing
10 Total Body Extensions – extending
11 Jumping Jacks – jumping
12 Burpees – burping

How you do the workout is exactly like the song. 

Do the 1st exercise;

Then do the 2nd exercise, then the 1st exercise.

Then do the 3rd exercise, then the 2nd, then the 1st.

Then 4th, 3rd, 2nd, 1st and so on until you are going from 12 all the way down to 1.If you can get through this without stopping, you deserve the extra leg of the turkey. Finally;I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very Merry Christmas.I hope you have a great time and when you have over indulged to the point of exhaustion, you can sign up for my 6 week weight loss challenge that starts on January the 5th ☺P.SHalf the places are gone already so don’t leave it too late and miss out.Details can be got through the link below.#TrainSmart
