BBL head labels Gayle comments ‘Disrespectful and simply inappropriate’

first_imgHOBART, Tasmania (CMC):The Big Bash League (BBL) has blasted comments by Chris Gayle made to a female reporter during a live television interview as “disrespectful and simply inappropriate” and says it will be meeting with the West Indies star over the matter.Following his explosive 41 for Melbourne Renegades yesterday at the Bellerive Oval here, Gayle openly flirted with Network TEN’s Mel McLaughlin during the interview, telling her: “I wanted to have an interview with you as well, that’s why I’m here.”He added: “I get to see your eyes for the first time, it’s nice. Hopefully we can win and go for a drink after.”Don’t blush, baby.”However, BBL head Anthony Everard said Gayle’s behaviour had no place in the glitzy Twenty20 tournament.CONDEMNATION”I heard Chris’ comments and they’re disrespectful and simply inappropriate. We’ll certainly be talking to him and the Renegades about it,” Everard said.”This league is all about its appeal to kids, families and females. There’s just no place in the BBL – or, for that matter, cricket anywhere – for that sort of behaviour.”The Renegades franchise also condemned Gayle’s remarks, echoing similar sentiments to those of the BBL head.”I heard Chris’ comments and we agree with both Cricket Australia and Channel TEN that they’re disrespectful and simply inappropriate,” Renegades Chief Executive Stuart Coventry said.”We’ll certainly be talking to him in association with Cricket Australia about it. The Melbourne Renegades is all about its appeal to kids, families and females. There’s just no place for that sort of behaviour.”Channel 10 subsequently announced they would be dropping Gayle as an interview option.”We won’t be using (Gayle) in the game anymore,” Channel TEN’s head of sport David Barham said. “Unless things change in the next few days, it’s not happening.”Renegades captain Aaron Finch, with whom Gayle shared a sizzling 84-run first-wicket partnership off 36 balls to set up yesterday’s win over Hobart Hurricanes, said the Jamaican had apologised to McLaughlin.”Chris has apologised to Mel. As an organisation, we don’t condone it,” Finch said following the five-wicket win.”Between Chris and everyone else, they’ve addressed it … he’s apologised.”last_img read more

An open letter to Caricom leaders

first_imgDear Editor,On the evening of December 21, 2018, the National Assembly of Guyana successfully passed a No-Confidence Motion against the David Granger Government. The Government moved to seek judicial review right up to the Caribbean Court of Justice, Guyana’s apex court. The CCJ on June 18 ruled that the motion was validly passed and the Government stood resigned. It subsequently issued consequential orders, which include that General and Regional Elections must be held no later than September 18, 2019.The CCJ’s ruling has been ignored by the APNU/AFC coalition and Guyana has now slipped into unconstitutional rule since September 18, 2019.The CCJ is a creature of the Caribbean Community (Caricom) and one would expect its decisions, if not adhered to, will be condemned by all right-thinking leaders in the Caribbean, whether individually or collectively. However, it is a crying shame that Caricom, either through its Secretary General or the Conference of Heads of Government has been disappointingly silent on this constitutional crisis which can have significant implications on Guyana’s future and political stability in the region.Caricom didn’t even see the need to publicly welcome the proposed March 2, 2020, date for elections and state if it will send an observation mission or if it will provide the necessary support to GECOM to ensure the elections are free and fair or free from fear.It is an embarrassment that Caricom, of which Guyana is a founding member state and where the Caricom Secretariat has been in a coma on the Guyana situation, even as the United States of America, the European Union, Britain, the Commonwealth Secretary General and the Organisation of American States (OAS), as well as the local business, legal and religious fraternities all saw the need to issue public calls for immediate elections in Guyana so that the country can return to constitutional rule.Editor, with what I outlined, it is now mind-boggling that Caricom has been silent on the litany of constitutional violations by the David Granger-led APNU/AFC since December 21, 2018.Why the silence, despite a promise from the Secretary General of Caricom, Ambassador Irwin LaRocque, that the community was awaiting the judicial outcome before making public statements?I want to ask the SG as well as the Chairman of Caricom and the individual Heads of Government the following questions;1. Why has Caricom not discussed the political situation in Guyana at its past Heads of Government meeting?2. Why has Caricom not yet convened an emergency meeting of Heads to discuss the political crisis in Guyana?3. Why has Caricom not sought to make known its position on the unconstitutional rule in Guyana?4. What exactly is Caricom’s position on the current situation in Guyana?Editor, I believe that this regional body has now proven to the people of Guyana and the rest of the Caribbean that it is a useless talk shop.I, therefore, call publicly on the SG of Caricom, Ambassador Irwin LaRocque, the Chairman of Caricom, Prime Minister Allen Chastanet and all regional Heads to immediately make known their position on the unconstitutional rule in Guyana. Your silence can be construed as support for an emerging dictatorship in Guyana.Yours respectfully,Edward Laynelast_img read more

GLSC reviewing laws to address land demarcation issues

first_img…as legal, procedural matters remain major bugbearAs the issue of land demarcation took centre stage on Wednesday, at the 2018 National Toshoa Council (NTC) conference being held at the Arthur Chung Convention Centre, representatives of the Guyana Lands and Surveys Commission (GLSC) gave its assurance that the matter is being aggressively looked at.Secretariat Manager at GLSC, Durwin Humphrey said that there may be the need for revision of the laws relating to lands governance and the commission is currently working on it. He admitted that it has been a recurring issue and it is hoped that these matters could be addressed in due course.“We have several procedures and legal issues as it relates to Amerindian land titling. We have to ensure that proper investigations are carried out prior to demarcation. We have been seeing issues where proper investigations were not conducted, however, not by GLSC,” he explained.However, as a result of an inadequacy in the system for land titling, the GLSCSecretariat Manager at GLSC, Durwin Humphreyhave started with a review of the legislation and have also put forward recommendations to improve the system.“And we have begun to see some improvements already. We have a few villages which we will be working with this year and hopefully, we could get those matters resolved,” he added.But Humphrey said he still believed that one of the solutions to the problem could have been the initiation of a Lands Commission of Inquiry (COI), which according to him, is still on the table.According to him, the GLSC functions with a combination of the Amerindian Act of 2006 – which has a reference made to the State Lands Act under which title is granted and the Survey Special Provision Act which deals with the demarcation of lands prior to land title.Humphrey said the commission is determined on working in accordance with the Constitution of Guyana thereby avoid conflict. Presently under the State Lands Act, there are several regulations which detail the rights and privileges enjoyed by Indigenous communities.At the opening of the conference on Monday, the immediate past Chairman of the NTC Chairman Joel Fredericks had blasted Government for a number of unfulfilled promises. According to Fredericks, the indigenous peoples of Guyana were promised a number of things, such as the revision of the Amerindian Act of 2006; Constitutional reform, and land titling.The coalition Government has failed to issue new land titles since taking office in 2015. Indigenous Peoples Affairs Minister, Sydney Allicock had previously admitted that only 26 per cent of the Amerindian Land Titling (ALT) Project has been completed.The minister told the Parliamentary Natural Resources Committee recently that the ALT work programme, which commenced in 2013, would require another decade before it could be completed, although the project’s life comes to an end in October 2018.According to Minister Allicock, only about 25 per cent of the total US$10 million earmarked for the project has thus far been utilised– some Gy$500 million, or US$2.5 million.The Government had, in 2013, signed a US$10.7 million agreement for implementation of the Amerindian Land Titling and Demarcation Project, which concluded in 2016. However, an extension was requested in 2017, resulting in $165 million being earmarked for advancing of the remaining identified areas.So far, 13 communities have applied for absolute grants for the first time. Of that number, seven have received approval, and six have been demarcated. Out of 23 communities, 14 have been issued with certificates of title; but there has so far been not one single community that has received a title under this Government.The ALT Project seeks to achieve three major goals: completion of land titling issues and demarcation process for all Amerindian villages that submitted requests; increased use of existing and alternative mechanisms to resolve land titling disputes; and completion of a communication strategy, including a handbook describing the process of titling, demarcation, and the social economic impact of secure land tenure.The project is being financed from the Guyana REDD+ Investment Fund (GRIF) which came into being under the People’s Progressive Party/Civic’s (PPP/C’s) Low Carbon Development Strategy (LCDS).last_img read more

DANIEL SAYS PAL CLIFF RICHARD SHOULD NEVER HAVE BEEN NAMED IN SEX ABUSE CLAIMS

first_imgDaniel O’Donnell says his close friend Sir Cliff Richard should never have been named after a recent sex abuse claim was made against him.Daniel and Majella are raging that their friend’s Cliff name has ben made public amidst sex abuse allegations.Daniel described Cliff as a “really genuine, good person who would do nothing to anybody, least of all a child”.The English singer strongly denies allegations that he was involved in sexually assaulting a boy at a rally by US evangelist Billy Graham in Sheffield in 1985. Daniel said he felt it was “absolutely unfair and unjust” that Cliff’s name was made public before the case had been fully investigated.“In my limited knowledge of the law, I don’t think we should know at this stage who the accused is,” he said.“I think the way it has all been conducted is definitely unfair and not in keeping with the law. It is like there is some kind of witch- hunt,” he said.The Kincasslagh star said steps should be taken to ensure that the name of an accused person was protected until they were charged with an offense. “It’s not the first time this has happened and an individual’s name has been made public before being charged. In some of those cases, the person was later deemed not to have a case to answer. But, by then, the damage was done to the person’s reputation,” he said.“As well as everything else, this also diminishes the legitimate cases of people who have been abused.”Daniel added: “In Cliff’s case, his name should not have been revealed until good investigative work is done to see if there are any grounds for the case to go any further. And I believe that Cliff will not have a case to answer.”Last week Daniel’s wife Majella took to Twitter to defend the singer.Sir Cliff has now been interviewed under caution by South Yorkshire Police detectives investigating the sex crime claim.

first_imgA heartbroken mother says she still cannot read her son’s suicide note three weeks after he killed himself.Enda O’Donnell, 20, a part-time referee and hotel worker, took his own life after leaving for work.His devastated mum Rose says she still cannot bring herself to read the note he left for her. “I read the first line and I just started screaming and running around the house. I don’t think I will ever be able to read it,” she said.Inconsolable Rose Crossan, from Downings, revealed she has also lost her brothers Michael and Joseph to suicide.“I am just empty. I am just a shell. My heart is broken. After losing my brothers I thought it couldn’t get any worse but it has,” she said.Rose said that Enda, who workled in the Milford Inn, was the happiest of young men and wanted for nothing in his life. “The worse thing about it is that we didn’t have any idea it was coming. He loved his work and he was so popular. We just didn’t see this coming,” she said.In the first line of his goodbye note, Enda said he was sorry for causing Rose more pain but he said he had nothing left in his life.He also left a note for his friends on his Facebook page saying that he had enough of life.Rose says she has no doubt there are more young people contemplating suicide but has begged them to think of the consequences.“I would say there are hundreds of young people out there thinking they are going to do it and they probably will. “I’m begging – go and speak to someone. Don’t put your parents through this. You can’t go back,” she said.EndsSUICIDE MUM: I CAN’T READ SON’S NOTE THREE WEEKS AFTER HIS DEATH was last modified: May 10th, 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:donegalsuicide notelast_img read more

Keeping warm while spending time in the cold

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREThe top 10 theme park moments of 2019 At $250, it’s more than reasonably priced for the quality and will keep you snug and balmy even in the coldest temperatures the Sierra can yield this fall. With storms a strong possibility and bitter cold likely, backpacking without a tent isn’t a great idea. When choosing a tent, the lighter the better. The Lightning by Sierra Designs weighs in at less than four pounds (less than some sleeping bags) and includes the rain fly. This tent is made for two people and is their lightest in the line. Price is $250. A simple weekend trip doesn’t require a large overnight pack. For women, Kelty’s Illusion 3500 is ideal for the backpacker who wants to pack fairly light, yet still have the perks of a well-designed bag. For men, the Tornado 4200 is a lightweight pack with an embedded, three-liter hydration system. Each pack will last a lifetime and be able to handle any trip of four days or less in the Eastern Sierra. Each runs $160-$170. Brunton offers several smaller gadgets that are perfect for backpacking. The Firelight ($40) is a windproof butane lighter with an integrated led light that will enable one to make a fire even in a windstorm. The Raptor ($40) is a butane canister stove, and MY-Ti ($20) is a set of titanium utensils that are light and strong. A Therm-A-Rest is a must for hikers who want to sleep in comfort. These self-inflating mattresses are light, specifically designed for men and women and compact. Stick with the “Trek and Travel Series,” and you’ll find yourself happy in the backcountry. Price $69-$79. When heading into the backcountry, keep in mind that you are climbing into areas well above 10,000 feet, which means single-digit nighttime temperatures are standard. REI offers backpackers two sleeping bags that can fend off the chilly weather and keep you comfy even when ice is forming on lakes. The REI Zenith is a synthetic bag that weighs less than four pounds and is rated to zero degrees. At $169, it’s affordable for a lightweight bag, but it;s a tough choice over REI’s Kilo Plus down bag. This bag is feather-like and weighs a little less than three pounds. A water purifier is a necessity unless you have the time and means to boil water every time you get thirsty. MSR’s MIOX Purifier ($130) is fairly new. It requires no pumping, works off batteries and can clean roughly four liters at a time. Merrell’s Chameleon II Gore-Tex Mid ($110) and Switchback GTX ($150) are ideal for backcountry expeditions. The Switchback is waterproof, durable and tough backpacking boot, but it’s comfortable; the Chameleon II is a cross-trainer that can handle a weekend backpacking trip without problem.

At $25, it’s cheap, light and waterproof, and it has enough nifty stuff to get you through blisters, headaches, cramps, scratches and cuts. Black Diamond’s Contour Trekking Pole is a must for hikers looking to take some of the pressure off their joints and knees while climbing up and down high mountain terrain.

Get yer Dodger seats here!

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORERose Parade grand marshal Rita Moreno talks New Year’s Day outfit and ‘West Side Story’ remake Schwartz is keeping two pairs for himself – which his two sons already love – and giving two to his dad as a Hanukkah gift. “When I told him I bought the seats (for myself), he thought I was crazy,” he said. “But I know when he sees them, he’ll love them. And now, I feel like I’m in my dad’s footsteps, taking my boys to baseball games, getting them excited for Opening Day.” For many, the bond between a father and son is at the core of the baseball experience – creating memories at Chavez Ravine over a Dodger Dog and a beverage. Baseball has the ability to close the generation gap, and the old seats, which witnessed more than 30 years of Dodgers history, are providing another outlet for that. While Schwartz is buying them to rekindle memories with his father, Arlen Estrem is hoping to use them to build memories with his 3-year-old son. Marc Schwartz’s earliest baseball memories came in the yellow field-level seats at Dodger Stadium, where he soaked in the bright lights and green grass, sitting next to his father, Jerry. Now 38, Schwartz wants to capture that stadium atmosphere right in his own backyard, and he wants to share the memories with his father. The Dodgers made it easy for him. Last week, the Santa Clarita man bought four pairs of seats from Dodger Stadium that were removed by the team during a $20 million renovation. The Dodgers are now replacing all 56,000, and fans can buy the old plastic-and-metal seats for $250 a pair. Estrem grew up in Northern California, too far from Dodger Stadium to go to games, but he was still a Dodgers fan. He remembers rooting for Steve Garvey from afar. Now living in Long Beach, he wants to share his passion for the blue with his son, Noah. The seats will go in Noah’s bedroom, Estrem said. “I’m a huge baseball fan, and I’m trying to instill the same thing in my son,” he said. The Dodgers believe their seats make a perfect last-minute holiday gift. There are plenty available – they’ve sold about 12,000, although many of the 56,000 seats were damaged and will not be sold. And they’re easy to buy – they can be ordered on the Dodgers Web site, dodgers.com, and picked up at the stadium hours later. The cost to ship them via DHL is $100 a pair. “What you’re really purchasing are memories,” Dodgers Chief Operating Officer Marty Greenspun said. “For each fan, it’s different. When fans come here to pick up the seats, they love to talk about their stories.” The Dodgers are donating proceeds from the sale to the Dodgers Dream Foundation, a community outreach program for local children, Greenspun said. The Dodgers aren’t the first team to sell seats. A New York department store sold those removed from Yankee Stadium during its 1974-75 renovation for $7.50 and five empty packs of cigarettes. In 2004, the city of New York sold newer Yankee Stadium seats at a steeper price – $1,500 for a set of three. At Dodger Stadium, Parking Lot 32 has been transformed into a stadium seat showroom. They are lined up by color – red removed from the upper deck, blue from the reserve level, orange from loge and yellow from the field. In a neighboring parking lot, damaged seats are piled high, a mountain of baseball history waiting to be discarded. Fans inspect them like jewelry appraisers looking for the perfect diamond. The seats are authentic, and many show it with dirt, grime, stains and rust. For the shopper, the challenge is to find the right seat. Of course, that changes for each fan – some are looking for the cleanest seats, some are looking for the right number or letter, some just want to have aisle seats. “I’m looking for numbers,” Estrem said. “But I’m also looking for a sturdy one that’s not been trashed too bad.” Estrem focuses on one chair, No. 6 – the number of former first-baseman Steve Garvey. He makes a little room in front of it so he can try it out, then he slides into the seat, just like he was sitting on the third-base line. Schwartz was looking for aisle seats, which have a faceplate at the end with the row’s letter. He spent about 90 minutes picking out his four pairs, looking for just the right ones. He plans to take them apart and powercoat them to make sure they last. He’ll put four seats near his backyard swimming pool, and he wants each end to be an authentic aisle seat so he has own mini-row. “People will think I’m crazy for doing this,” he said. “But once they see those seats in the backyard, they’ll love it.” Josh Kleinbaum, (818) 713-3669 josh.kleinbaum@dailynews.com 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Birds to Watch

first_img(Visited 17 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0 Here are some amazing stories about birds, to inspire wonder and admiration of these varied and beautiful flying creatures.Feather gallery:  Let’s start with a show of feathers.  As illustrated in the film Flight: The Genius of Birds, a feather is a highly complex structure, light and flexible yet strong.  From the soft downy inner feathers to the long, strong flight feathers, they perform multiple functions for birds.  One of those functions is sexual display.  For birds, the males are usually the fairer sex in terms of cosmetic beauty.  National Geographic posted a gallery of some of the more flamboyant species, illustrating the tremendous variety in shape and structure of feathers from head to tail.Hawk trick:  How do raptors avoid wing damage in turbulence?  They tuck their “collapsible” wings under their body very briefly when a strong gust hits.  That’s what Science Daily says about experiments with a flight recorder mounted on the back of an eagle.  It only takes about 0.35 second for the “wing tuck” maneuver (during which the bird is essentially falling), but it prevents damage and saves energy for the flight muscles that would be severely strained trying to maintain balance in a strong gust.  The test eagle named Cossack performed this maneuver on average three times a minute.  Don’t expect small aircraft to try this trick any time soon; their strategy is to stay grounded in strong winds.Duck trick:  Ducks and other waterfowl feel for their food underwater.  To do this, their bills must be very sensitive to touch.  Researchers from Yale studied duck bills and found the reasons for “acute mechanosensitivity in tactile-foraging waterfowl.”  Publishing their findings in PNAS, they said this “least well understood” sense is due to a higher density of somatosensory neurons in ducks than in mice, and that they are more densely packed.  Neurons for temperature, though, were reduced—probably because waterfowl often feel their way around in very cold water.Desert migrators:  Some Australian shorebirds have an uncanny knack for crossing the desert and locating small temporary ponds over a thousand miles inland from their usual beachfront homes.  Sid Perkins, writing for Science Magazine, tells how matchbox-sized geolocators mounted on the birds tracked their routes.  After rains, groups of birds would leave from different locations and converge on the same small pond.  In one case, the birds flew 2200 km (1367 miles) in 2.5 days.  Some took off weeks after the rains, perhaps planning their arrival for the hatching of brine shrimp.  Scientists are not sure what cues the birds use to find the ephemeral ponds, which might only fill with water once every 2 or 3 years.GPS contest:  As many have heard, this year’s Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine went to scientists who discovered the brain’s internal GPS (see Science Magazine)—the sense, located in the hippocampus, that helps us navigate with a mental compass and map.  Less reported was a story by Sana Suri on The Conversation that says “‘Inner GPS’ of bird brains may be better than that of humans.”  Some seed-caching birds have a larger hippocampus than other species, and display an extraordinary sense for location memory.  For example, the Clark’s nutcracker excels at “making more than 5000 caches of seeds in the autumn and recovering them seven to nine months later in the spring.”  On a related subject, Science Daily posted an interesting description about how our own spatial memory depends on geometrical relationships and the brain’s ability to “anchor” our mental compass with landmarks.Perching in the Tree of Life:  “They are some of the brightest, loudest, oddest-looking, least-understood birds on the planet, and thanks to a comprehensive new evolutionary ‘tree of life’ generated for the tropical cotinga family of South America, the door is now open to new discoveries about the more than 60 species in this amazingly diverse group of birds,” begins a report in Science Daily.  Claims of success for a cotinga phylogenetic tree came at a price, however:They wanted to learn if the evolution of differently-colored males and females in this bird group (sexual dimorphism) is directly linked to a breeding system in which males have multiple mates (polygyny). Darwin first theorized that the increased pressure of sexual selection in polygynous birds spurred the development of color differences between the sexes. This appears to be true for many species — but not the cotingas. When Berv and Prum examined patterns of evolution for these two traits across their new tree of life, it turned out that they didn’t perfectly match up. The statistics they calculated also supported the conclusion that these traits may be evolutionarily “de-coupled” in the cotingas.Readers skeptical of the evolutionary speculating, or who consider “sexual selection” theory to be a “zombie idea” (1/24/14), can at least enjoy the photo of a bright orange Andean cock-of-the-rock.  The article gives this description of other species of cotingas: “Some have bulbous crests, long fleshy wattles, or Elvis-worthy pompadours in addition to electric blue, deep purple, or screaming orange feathers.”  Readers can also decide whether a fossil bird egg found in Brazil has anything to do with evolution (Science Daily).Roast eagle:  On a political note, California has (thankfully) dropped plans for another solar power plant that poses a risk to birds, PhysOrg reported.  As politically popular as alternative energy has become, it often follows the Law of Unintended Consequences.  The collected light in a large solar plant near the border with Nevada gets so hot, it “can cause some birds to ignite in midair.”  Birds and bats have also been frequent casualties of wind farms.The more you learn about birds, the more you will doubt evolution, and instead appreciate them and marvel at the design built into them.  Appreciating birds will also promote efforts to protect them from political schemes.  With these news items in mind, why not watch a bird today?last_img read more
