Photo credit: kirtok.comSteven Jno. Baptiste of Gallion was on Thursday denied bail by Magistrate Candia Carette-George for theft of a female’s underwear at Soufriere as well as charged with contravening a protection order.According to the facts presented at Court, the Defendant on “the 26th of December, 2011 at Soufriere, did steal one yellow panty and contravene a protection order dated 23rd June, 2011” contrary to the laws of the Commonwealth of Dominica, which he pleaded not guilty to.Police Prosecutor Inspector Claude Weekes objected to bail on the grounds that the Defendant continues to interfere with the complainant despite the protection order as well as to prevent the Defendant from potentially causing harm to the complainant.Magistrate Candia Carette-George told the Defendant that bail has been denied based on the alleged threat to the complainant. He was remanded in custody and will return on the 5th of January, 2012 when his bail application will be revisited.The trial date has been scheduled for the 25th of January, 2012.Meantime four men; Alton Eusebe of La Plaine, Sharmane Peter of Goodwill, Marvin Roberts of Mahaut and Mandella Gordon of Goodwill who were jointly charged on last week Friday for six firearm and controlled drug related charges will have to spend another week at the State’s Prison.Their application for bail was denied last week despite strong arguments presented by their attorneys on the grounds so as to allow the investigating officers time to carry out their investigations into the matter.They have therefore been remanded at the Dominica State’s Prison until the 5th of January, 2012 when their application for bail will be revisited.Dominica Vibes News Share Tweetlast_img read more

Girls Sectional

first_imgIt is hard to believe the girls basketball teams are playing their sectionals.  Southeastern Indiana has been blessed with some very fine teams this year.  The sectionals should be balanced–especially the 3A one at South Dearborn.In 4A an injury hampered East Central team will still represent the area well.  They have a winning record despite suffering 4 major injuries during the season.  In 3A Greensburg is ranked #2 in the state and is definitely the favorite in the South Dearborn sectional.  However, there are no soft touches in this sectional.In 2A South Ripley is ranked very high and should be able to repeat as a sectional winner.  In 1A Jac-Cen-Del is again rated very highly and just recently knocked off South Ripley, so they are again a favorite in the 1A sectional.No matter who you are rooting for, go to the games and support the ladies.  You will see some good basketball!last_img read more

Japan gives date to host Olympics in 2021

first_imgRelatedPosts Japanese firm develops robot able to kill COVID-19 with ultra-violet rays Tokyo 2020 organisers want ‘Super Mario’ Abe to remain involved Britain marks 75 years since Japan’s defeat in World War II The Tokyo Olympics will take place between July 23 and August 8 next year. The International Olympic Committee confirmed the news on Monday, which followed a meeting of the Tokyo 2020 organising committee. A decision to postpone the Olympic and Paralympic Games was taken last week by the IOC and the Japanese Government because of the accelerating threat posed by the Coronavirus Disease pandemic. A statement from the IOC also confirmed the new dates for the Paralympic Games, which will now take place from August 24 to September 5. “These new dates give the health authorities and all involved in the organisation of the Games the maximum time to deal with the constantly changing landscape and the disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic,” the statement read. “The new dates, exactly one year after those originally planned for 2020 also have the added benefit that any disruption that the postponement will cause to the international sports calendar can be kept to a minimum, in the interests of the athletes and the international federations. “Additionally, they will provide sufficient time to finish the qualification process. The same heat mitigation measures as planned for 2020 will be implemented.” The confirmation of the new dates comes less than a week after the forced postponement of the Games. IOC president Thomas Bach said: “I want to thank the international federations for their unanimous support and the Continental Associations of National Olympic Committees for the great partnership and their support in the consultation process over the last few days. “I would also like to thank the IOC Athletes’ Commission, with whom we have been in constant contact. “With this announcement, I am confident that, working together with the Tokyo 2020 organising committee, the Tokyo metropolitan government, the Japanese government and all our stakeholders, we can master this unprecedented challenge. Humankind currently finds itself in a dark tunnel. These Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 can be a light at the end of this tunnel.” Tokyo 2020 organising committee president Yoshiro Mori said he had proposed the July 23 to August 8 time frame to the IOC, and that Bach had agreed following consultations with the international sports federations. “A certain amount of time is required for the selection and qualification of athletes and for their training and preparation, and the consensus was that staging the rescheduled Games during the summer vacation in Japan would be preferable,” Mori said. “In terms of transport, arranging volunteers and the provision of tickets for those in Japan and overseas, as well as allowing for the COVID-19 situation, we think that it would be better to reschedule the Games to one year later than planned, in the summer of 2021.” International Paralympic Committee president Andrew Parsons added: “When the Paralympic Games do take place in Tokyo next year, they will be an extra-special display of humanity uniting as one, a global celebration of human resilience and a sensational showcase of sport. “With the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games 512 days away, the priority for all those involved in the Paralympic Movement must be to focus on staying safe with their friends and family during this unprecedented and difficult time.”Tags: International Olympics CommitteeJapanOlympics 2021last_img read more

Shane Lowry regains hunger after six-week break

first_img “I feel like a year later I can make the next team and that’s probably my main goal for the next five months. “I know if I put myself in position, I can win a major. I’m not saying I’m going to go out and do it next year, but if I give myself a chance I know I can.” Defending champion Oliver Wilson has struggled to build on the momentum of his emotional victory 12 months ago, when he began the week ranked 792nd in the world but held off the challenge of number one Rory McIlroy, Tommy Fleetwood and Richie Ramsay to win his first European Tour event after nine second places. Wilson has made just five halfway cuts in 23 events this season but the former Ryder Cup player believes he is close to rediscovering his form. ” I had pretty realistic expectations after last year,” the 35-year-old said. “It would be nice to think after winning the Dunhill that I just go back and keep on winning or getting in contention. I knew that wasn’t going to be the case. “I gave myself six months after that to continue working on my swing and getting it in the position that I want to and it’s taken a little bit longer. In hindsight, I should probably not have played quite as many tournaments because I got into some really bad habits on the course. “I’m very close to being able to stop working on my swing and trying to be more like I have always been, which is much more natural, contrary to what some people might think. “It’s been frustrating but the end is in sight and I’m in a fortunate position that I can hopefully start next year from a clean slate.” Press Association Lowry won the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational in August but has played just once since his memorable victory at Firestone Country Club, missing the cut in the following week’s US PGA Championship. The 28-year-old has enjoyed reflecting on his success in Akron and feels the six-week break will work in his favour in the closing stages of the season, starting with this week’s Alfred Dunhill Links Championship. Ireland’s Shane Lowry has reset his goals and regained his hunger for the game as he looks to build on the biggest win of his career. “I’ve been able to take a few weeks off and I’ve enjoyed my win, and then the last few weeks I decided to reassess and try to set some goals going forward,” Lowry said ahead of the pro-am event staged on the Old Course at St Andrews, Carnoustie and Kingsbarns. “When something like that happens, it’s tough to get my head around. It would be easy for me to sit back the rest of the year, say I’ve won a massive tournament and sit back at Christmas and be happy with that. “I’m looking forward and looking to do a few more things in the next few weeks. I’m hoping to see another win, to contend in a few tournaments and finish at the top. “I’m sure there probably will be a little bit of rust but I’ve played a lot of games the last few weeks with friends. I feel like I’m playing well. Feel like I’ve never had a break at all. But I do feel like my hunger is back and that’s kind of what I wanted to get after a few weeks off. “Sometimes when you go through a long season and after a win like this, if you keep playing golf can kind of catch up with you and you can get burned out. I’m hoping those weeks off will stand me in good stead, not only this week but when it comes to the end of the year and The Race to Dubai and things like that.” Lowry has missed the first four events in Ryder Cup qualifying but feels he is now ready to challenge for a place in Darren Clarke’s European side, which will look to retain the trophy at Hazeltine next year. And a first major title is also on the agenda after he went into the final round of the US Open in June just three shots off the lead before finishing in a tie for ninth. “I felt like the last Ryder Cup probably came a year too early for me,” Lowry added. last_img read more

Lille FC Celebrate Osimhen’s Arrival in Grand Style

first_imgFemi Solaja with Agency reportAs the summer transfer market is gradually winding to the home stretch to usher in the new football season, Super Eagles bronze winning forward at the last AFCON tournament in Egypt, Victor Osimhen is the toast at Lille Olympique Sporting Club (LOSC) as they celebrate the arrival of the young lad in style.On the club’s official website monitored by THISDAY last night, Osimhen was tagged as “the arrival of Super Eagle in LOSC!” He’s the new offensive reinforcement for the LOSC!The promising striker from Sporting Charleroi in the Belgian top-flight sealed a five-season contract yesterday Morning. The contract is expected to run through to 2024.Osimhen, who was the last of the Super Eagles’ 23-man squad that coach Gernot Rohr used at the last tournament in Egypt when he replaced injured Odion Ighalo at half time, appeared on the radar of some of the biggest clubs in European leagues because of his exploits late last season.“Osimhen first showed his skill at the U-17 Africa Cup of Nations in 2015, before moving to the U-17 World Cup, a few months later, where he became the top scorer with10 goals in seven games in a competition Nigeria won.“A precocity that even allows him to be outclassed for the U-23 CAN he also raises in the wake, then to be elected the best young African player of the year 2018 by the Confederation of African Football,” the club website stated while profiling their new kid on the starting bloc.The 20-year-old sealed the five-year deal with the Ligue 1 side on Thursday after a successful medical.After scoring 20 times in Belgium last season, Osimhen is delighted to follow in the footsteps of compatriots Peter Osaze Odemwingie and Vincent Enyeama by joining Lille.“Lille is a very good club that has a quality project and includes high-class players, even more in recent years,” stressed Osimhen on the club website.“Great Nigerian players have also played here. I would like to join their lineage and follow their footsteps.“I am very happy to be here and to join this great club. I am still young, I am learning and I think that this project suits me perfectly to continue to progress.”Osimhen was the top scorer as Nigeria clinched a fifth Under-17 World Cup title in 2015 with 10 goals in Chile, which saw him win the Golden Boot and Silver Ball.He has played for Nigeria at all levels, from under-17 to the full senior side, for whom he has won five caps.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

Wisconsin assumes reign atop nations polls

first_imgWith two wins last weekend at the College Hockey Showcase in Michigan, the Badger hockey team garnered the top spot in the national rankings for the first time since Oct. 23, 2000. Wisconsin overcame a one-goal deficit Friday night to earn a 3-1 victory over Michigan State, and they held off the formerly top-ranked Michigan Wolverines Saturday for the 3-2 win.The Badgers are ranked No. 1 in both the USCHO.com and USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine polls. The No. 1 ranking is the first for any team under head coach Mike Eaves, but Eaves doesn’t concern himself with rankings this early in the season.”The only time No. 1 counts is at the end of the year. It’s an early season measuring stick, but let’s not forget how we got to this point. We still have so much to get improved,” he said.Eaves commented he would much rather have his team focus on the things they have to improve as well as the things that got them to this point. Wisconsin so far this season has allowed the fewest points per game in the country, while also having the nation’s sixth best penalty kill. Their power play needs work, however, as the team has converted only 13.5 percent of its chances this season.”It could become a psychological trap if we put a lot of stock into it,” Eaves said of the top ranking. “We talked about the process again. That kind of keeps things at an even keel.”With the top spot in the country comes the pressure of holding that top spot. The Badgers have become a source of motivation for other teams, who will give everything they have to take a win from the best team in college hockey.”We’re quite comfortable with that,” Eaves said. “If we have a bull’s-eye on our back, then we’re doing things that we want to do, we’re going where we want to be.”In the nine national polls released so far this season, five different teams have held the top ranking. Wisconsin’s challenge now will be to hold on to their ranking, especially with a tough Minnesota series on the road this weekend.”We just need to continue to try to keep that bull’s-eye on our back,” Eaves said. “Let’s just keep getting better, and if that stays on our back, then that’s an indicator of a good thing for us.”Some of Wisconsin’s success this season can be attributed to forward Robbie Earl, who has added to his role of flashy scorer this season.When many hockey fans think of Earl, they usually don’t think of his defense. They especially don’t think about his role as a penalty killer more than his role on the power play. But Earl has seen some time during penalty kill situations this season, and he has been effective in his play on the WCHA’s best penalty kill, according to Eaves.”When you’re on the power play and you’re playing against a guy like Robbie, you’re going to be a little more leery, maybe you’re going to think more about how to defend him as opposed to just trying to score,” Eaves said.Earl stands second on the team in scoring with 16 points on the season, with five goals and 11 assists. His ability to make moves that cause observers to do double takes, along with his knack for scoring, has made Earl the target for opposing defenses. But his play on special teams has been something new for him this season.”Robbie is willing to play and understands a little bit more about how to play away from the puck,” Eaves said. “What makes him dangerous as a person you might have on a penalty kill or when the other team pulls their goaltender is the fact that he can make plays.”Eaves said Earl’s special teams play has been an expansion of his game.”His growth away from the puck and his willingness to want to do that makes him a weapon in that area now,” Eaves said.last_img read more
