Scorpions collapse, semis spot in danger

first_imgPORT-OF-SPAIN, Trinidad, (CMC): Jamaica Scorpions jeopardised their chances of a semi-final spot in the Regional Super50 when they stumbled to a 73-run defeat at the hands of Barbados Pride following another weak batting effort here yesterday. Chasing 247 for victory at the National Cricket Centre, Scorpions collapsed from a strong position of 61 without loss after eight overs to 173 all out off 46.5 overs, to suffer their third loss of the competition and slip to third spot in Group A. With their win, Pride moved into second on 14 points and can confirm their semi-final berth with a win over hosts Trinidad and Tobago Red Force in the final round of matches tomorrow. Scorpions, who remained on ten points, can still qualify for the semi-finals but need to beat ICC Americas in their final game also tomorrow and hope Pride lose to Red Force. However, they could have avoided the unnecessary permutations had they not squandered a great start from openers John Campbell, who scored 42 and rookie Jermaine Harrison who struck 22. Once they were separated, however, wickets fell steadily as Pride bowlers slowly dissected the innings. In-form right-hander Andre McCarthy resisted with 33 from 63 balls but found no support, with the last six wickets tumbling for 57 runs. Part-time medium pacer Jonathan Carter once again made his presence felt with three for 26, while Test left-arm spinner Jomel Warrican snapped up three for 32. Earlier, attacking opener Dwayne Smith broke out of his slump with a powerful 86 to lead Pride’s charge to 246 for nine off their 50 overs, after they were sent in. The right-hander got support from wicketkeeper Shane Dowrich with 48, while tail-ender Ashley Nurse chimed in with 23. Skipper Campbell claimed three for 57 with his off-spin, while Test fast bowler Jerome Taylor picked up two for 30. Facing a must-win scenario in order to remain alive in the competition, Pride started poorly when Taylor removed both openers with just 33 runs on the board. He removed the proflic Kraigg Brathwaite, caught at the wicket for one in the third over with nine runs on the board and returned to prise out another Test batsman Shai Hope for four, also caught behind in the ninth over. Man of the Match Smith, coming off scores of two, one, four and nought, added 33 for the third wicket with left-hander Jonathan Carter who scored 16 before he was run out in a bad mix-up in the 16th over. Smith then combined with Shamarh Brooks (20) in a pivotal 66-run stand for the fourth wicket which once again gave the innings momentum.last_img read more

Religious leaders should lead by example

first_imgDear Editor,The recent news captioned: “Rosignol Pastor gets 40 years for raping minor’’ was very shocking and disturbing since the rise and fall of our so-called pope among other religious leaders in the Christian community reminds me of the Jim Jones who killed 918 innocent souls in the name of God.The current news of a pastor getting a 40-year sentence for raping a minor sets a bad example for the Christian community, as well as other religious communities. As a reverend and religious leader myself, I wish to admonish all religious leaders from every religion to be very watchful; also political leaders and leaders of Government and private institutions.When I attended Bible College or seminary, I was taught a course called “Ministerial Ethics” and over a dozen courses on the “principles of leadership”. I was taught about the three principles or weapons used by Satan to destroy men – power, sex, and money – as stated in the Bible.From the “Ministerial Ethics” course I did, I learn that a minister of religion should not counsel a woman alone, be alone with a woman in a closed office, have a woman alone in his car, eat with a woman alone at a restaurant and same goes for female ministers of religion.Ministers of religion need to set a better example to the church, community, society and nation. Even today we have a lot of “so called” pastors and church leaders who never went through any Ministry training but call themselves Apostles, Prophets, Bishops; many of whom can barely read at a very competent level.What is important in Ministry and every capacity of leadership is our morality, character, integrity and respect for others. It’s not how nice we dress, it’s how morally upright we must be. Good character is the leadership quality that distinguishes great leadership. It is the quality that most people admire. Leaders of good character have integrity, courage and compassion. They are careful and prudent.Ministers must see their own daughter in a next man’s daughter they must see the mothers, sisters, aunts as their own because they must have the love of God in their hearts and don’t see members of the opposite sex as sex objects and rape objects because we will reap what we sow.Our words contain our life – that’s our character and attitude. Life is sowing and reaping.Ministers of religion are not angels and no man or woman is perfect and no sin is too big for God to forgive. We can learn from our mistakes. My heart is broken when I read the bad news pieces in the press.To live in harmony with the people of all religions, races, castes and nations may be added to the characteristics of high character. Character is a God given principle, given by God to man from His holy books.Sincerely,Rev Gideon Cecillast_img read more

Greenville Port Gains ISPS Compliance Level 1

first_imgNPA Managing Director David F. Williams – Advertisement – After a careful review, meeting the guidelines and procedures pursuant to the International Ship and Port Facility Security Code (ISPS), the West African Maritime Security Consultancy (WAMSEC) has certified the Port Facility Security Assessment (PFSA) and Port Facility Security Plan (PFSP) of the Samuel Alfred Ross Port in Greenville, Sinoe County.A press release issued last evening in Monrovia by the National Port Authority (NPA), said the Greenville Port now has international best practice, and is in full compliance with the ISPS Code Regime, particularly X1–2 Chapter 16.3–3.15 and 16.4 respectively.The NPA release indicated that in keeping with the Safety of Life at Sea Convention (SOLAS), the management of the NPA instituted an alternative security arrangement, approved by the designated authority that conducted the Port Facility Security Assessment.According to the release, NPA Managing Director David F. Williams explained that the Port of Greenville was originally constructed in 1964 by the African Fruit Company, a German Concession, to facilitate agriculture operations in banana cultivation up to the exportation of timbers as the key export.He said the port for the first time got certificated and certified as an International Ship and Port Security, thus making it to gain Security Level 1 status consistent with the ISPS Code.The ISPS Code is a set of measures to enhance the security of ships and port facilities. It was developed in response to the perceived threats to ships and port facilities after the 9/11 attacks in the United States and it provides a framework through which ships and port facilities can co-operate to detect and deter acts which pose a threat to maritime security.He said the port was officially dedicated on December 11, 1964, by former President William R. Tolbert.The Samuel A. Ross Port of Greenville is Liberia’s third largest seaport with huge potential that is poised to become a beacon of hope for revenue generation, job creation and other associated economic dividends for the entire southeastern region, he added.“This is another historical legacy for the Liberian seaport sector for the first time in more than half a century,” said Williams.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Big Bam opening delayed until Jan. 2

first_imgThe Big Bam Ski Hill will be opening one week later than anticipated. Spokesperson Duane Brooks confirmed on Tuesday, volunteers have been going “too fast, too hard.”   He says had organizers tried to open on Boxing Day as scheduled, preparations would have been too hasty.  It also would have meant volunteers wouldn’t have had time or energy left over to spend with their families over Christmas. So, Big Bam will now open to the public on January 2nd.  The Grand Opening has also been pushed back, to January 16th. – Advertisement -Meanwhile, Brooks says anyone interested can now register for seasons passes at the Fort St. John Visitor Information Centre, at Ernie’s, or at the Griffin Sport and Ski Shoppe.

London Olympics: Coach Michael Nobbs happy with hockey team’s preparations

first_imgThe Indian hockey team had a longish workout under a clear sky at the Riverbank arena on Wednesday evening.Doubts were raised over the fitness of two key players – Sardar Singh and Ignace Tirkey. However, watching them stretch, train and play a short game, they looked quite comfortable on the blue turf.To someone watching the new turf for the first time, the colour is a bit jarring on the eye. But most changes in the field of play these days are being done with television in mind. Even though the fluorescent green ball travelled quite fast, the dark pink border around the turf again hit the naked eye.Coach Michael Nobbs was quite relaxed after practice when he spoke to Mail Today. “You have seen the entire team at practice and train, so it’s clear there are no fitness issues,” said Nobbs.In his view, the best 12 teams on planet are playing the men’s hockey competition at the Olympics. “It doesn’t matter whether you are back in the Olympic fold after eight years. What matters is the top teams are here and have done so after proper qualification. And India is one of them,” said Nobbs.The Riverbank stadium is a temporary structure and very different from the Capital’s National Stadium. The entire seating is on a temporary steel structure and the view is good.Talking about the weather, Nobbs wished it gets as hot as possible. “That’s the weather which should suit our boys,” feels Nobbs.As regards predictions, Nobbs wasn’t willing to be drawn into a deep conversation. “The first match is against Holland and you know what kind of a record they have in the last three Olympics. Then you have Germany, so it can’t get any tougher,” he said.advertisement”The team has to believe in itself and we will see. There are still a few days to go,” said Nobbs, who became a hero after India won the Olympic qualifier earlier this year. Meanwhile, penalty corner specialist Sardar Singh was also happy. “The turf is now playing better and the bounce is more even. The mood in the Indian camp is good,” he added.last_img read more
