It is the first time the Eagles have gone four top-flight games without a goal since February 1998 (when they could not find the net in five successive Premier League outings).These teams have met twice already this season. In September, at Selhurst Park, City stole the points thanks to a last-minute winner from Kelechi Iheanacho. And six weeks later, at the Etihad Stadium, City won 5-1 in the Capital One Cup, with five different scorers.Palace have never won at City in the Premier League, losing the last three and drawing two of five. Indeed, they last won there in December 1990 in the old First Division.last_img read more

Price optimistic despite Boys’ Town’s struggles

first_imgCoach of Boys’ Town Andrew Price is highly confident that his team can rise from the bottom of the pile in the Red Stripe Premier League and gain qualification to the play-off stage next April. Despite being in last place on a mere 11 points from 15 games in the second round of the preliminary stage, the Collie Smith Drive-based club in is hoping to extend their two-match unbeaten run and move up the table. Boys’ Town picked up a point in a 0-0 draw against Portmore United last Sunday, following a 2-1 victory against Waterhouse in their previous encounter. “This is our second best as we had a similar one in the first round. We are hoping to kick on as the defence line have been strengthened with the return of veteran defender Wayne Ellis and the addition of Kurt Thomas,” said Price, who has been at Boys’ Town for over two decades as player and coach. “Our next game is against Jamalco and we are very optimistic. We are last in the table, but the past four weeks have seen some improvements in the team,” he informed. With the new format that will see the top six teams at the completion of the preliminary stage qualifying for the championship play-off, Price says that his team is eyeing a spot there. “The objective is to get into the top six as we have a good balance of young and experienced players in the squad. We will also look to add players during the next transfer window in January,” Price concluded. Boys’ Town are on the same points as Waterhouse, but have the worst goal difference in the league after scoring 13 times and conceding 30 goals. They have won three games, drawn twice and suffered ten losses.last_img read more

33 constitutes the majority

first_imgDear Editor,The debate about establishing a majority in the National Assembly of 65 members resulted in invoking a mathematical formula. The formula used is: ½ (65) + 1 with rounding up (which is incorrect in this case) then add 1 to produce 34. The assumption here is that the number representing members of the National Assembly constitutes a continuous variable, which is false.For the sake of argument, let us accept it. Half of 65 is 32.5 which is exactly half-way between the whole numbers 32 and 33. If we are rounding to the nearest whole number among the set of whole numbers, the result is 32 and not 33 since on a continuous scale the rounding is to the even whole number.In rounding a number that sits exactly half-way between two whole numbers rounding is to the even whole number. This convention for rounding a number on a continuous scale is to avoid errors resulting from rounding up all the time. This methodology reduces errors inherent in rounding numbers upwards all the time. The mathematics curriculum for secondary schools in Guyana has accepted this convention.So ½ of 65 = 32.5 and to the nearest whole number is 32.When 1 is added to 32 you have 33.Therefore, majority is 33 out of 65.Another approach in determining majority in the National Assembly is to recognise that data is on a nominal scale. The majority can be established in the following manner:If the composition of the National Assembly is an odd number, N, then the majority is determined by the formula below:Majority= (N+1)/2 which is (65+1)/2=33So, the number, 33, constitutes the majority.On the other hand, if the composition of the National Assembly is an even number, say 64, then the following formula applies:Majority= N/2+1 which is 64/2+1=33Again, the number, 33, constitutes the majority.It is worth noting that in these alternative formulae for calculation on categorical data, there is no resulting fraction.Respectfully,Mohandatt Goolsarranlast_img read more

first_imgFianna Fáil TD for Donegal Charlie McConalogue has called for Irish Water to be scrapped, describing it as a hugely expensive fiasco that has cost Donegal taxpayers dearly.According to the Donegal Deputy, the State is €785 million worse off following the establishment of the Super Quango two years ago. Meanwhile, not an extra cent has been spent on fixing one single leak or water supply problem in Donegal.“This has now gone beyond a joke,” said Deputy McConalogue. “It has been one fiasco after another since this hugely expensive Super Quango was established. There was absolutely no need to set up Irish Water. No one forced the Government to do this. They could have easily left the water infrastructure within the remit of local authorities, and instead spent the money on actually fixing leaks and supply problems.“What’s happened instead is that €785 million of taxpayers money has been spent on creating a ridiculous Super Quango that has done absolutely nothing but waste money, look after its own bosses with bonuses and perks, spend a fortune on consultants and spin doctors, wasted hundreds of millions on a flawed meter installation process and essentially ignore the needs of consumers and the problems with the water supply in Donegal.“So much confusion has been created over the water billing process and people feel seriously disgruntled that they are being expected to fork out without getting a single thing in return. This has resulted in an abysmally low level of compliance to date. And now it turns out that instead of benefiting the public as Irish Water was supposed to do, it is instead creating debt of €35 million a year before a cent has been invested in the water infrastructure.“It is time to put an immediate stop to this ridiculously expensive fiasco. I am calling for Irish Water to be scrapped immediately before more money is wasted.” IRISH WATER IN NUMBERS:▪ €172m spent to set up Irish Water▪ €540m spent on water meters▪ €80m spent on consultants▪ €45m is spent on operating Irish Water every year▪ Not an extra cent invested in water infrastructure above the usual annual spend before the Super Quango was set up. McCONALOGUE CALLS FOR IRISH WATER TO BE SCRAPPED was last modified: July 15th, 2015 by John2Share 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:Charlie McConalogue TDIrish WaterScraplast_img read more
