CRUISING West Indies, who were cruising at 147 for three, had lost two quick wickets, including Pope, who laid the foundation by putting on 44 runs for the first wicket with Tevin Imlach. Hetmyer arrived to lead the recovery of an innings which appeared to be wobbling and compiled a 64-run stand with Keacy Carty. Heymyer’s score of 60, his second straight half century, included 7 fours and a six, while Carty picked up two boundaries in his contribution of 22. Hetmyer’s departure threatened to tilt the game towards Bangladesh but when Jyd Goolie joined Springer, the two gathered 30 runs for the fifth wicket to take the score past 175. The run chase was disrupted again when left-arm spinner Saleh Ahmed Shawon, Bangladesh’s chief wicket taker with three for 37, struck twice in four balls to remove Goolie for nine and Paul for four. But Springer weathered the threat by teaming up with Michael Frew to steal singles and twos in a patient stand of 36. Springer, dropped on 15, was unbeaten on 62 with five fours and a six, and scored the winning runs for West Indies when he smashed Mohammad Saifuddin through the covers for four. Earlier, captain Mehedi was forced to rescue his side with a top score of 60 after they had slumped to 88 for four. Mehedi stitched together an 85-run partnership with Mohammed Saifuddin for the sixth wicket, which lifted the homeboys from 113 for five to almost 200. Paul broke the partnership, capturing the wicket of Mehedi and added two lower-order wickets to finish with impressive figures of three for 20 from three overs. DHAKA, Bangladesh (CMC): West Indies will make their second appearance in the Under-19 World Cup final after a stunning three-wicket victory over Bangladesh in the semi-final at Shere Bangla National Stadium yesterday. West Indies, inspired by an all-round performance from man of the match Shamar Springer, silenced more than 10,000 fans at the stadium with a gutsy run chase to overhaul the 227 runs set by Bangladesh who won the toss and elected to field. Keemo Paul destroyed the Bangladesh lower order, grabbing three for 20, including the important scalp of captain Mehedi Hasan Miraz, who led the innings with a half century. Half centuries from Shimron Hetmyer and Springer, under pressure, complemented a positive innings from opener Gidron Pope as the visitors negotiated some anxious moments before romping to victory with eight balls remaining. They will now contest the showpiece championship match against India in Mirpur on Sunday. Pope, who was dropped on 23, started the chase in aggressive fashion, clobbering 14 runs in the first over on his way to 38.
Guyana-Venezuela border controversy…as Guyana prepares to present case to ICJBy Jarryl BryanGovernment has commenced preparations to present its arguments to the International Court of Justice (ICJ) on the Guyana-Venezuela border controversy, with high-level meetings between the Foreign Affairs Ministry, its advisory committee and legal counsel being held over the weekend.This is according to Foreign Affairs Minister Carl Greenidge, who on the side lines of the United Nations’ International Organisation for Migration (IMO) consultations on Monday said that immediate work has already begun.“The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and its advisory team and its lawyers met all day yesterday (Sunday), into the evening. And they mapped out the broad options, the issues that needed immediate attention and those that Cabinet has to give policy guidance.”Greenidge, who only recently returned from an official trip to India, admitted that the UN Secretary General’s decision has not yet been discussed at the level of Cabinet because of the short timeframe. But he said that the matter would be engaging the attention of Cabinet this week.“In the course of the week, that report will be presented to Cabinet, and Cabinet will be asked to make some decisions on the legal team… decisions to make on issues to do with timing, how exactly it will treat with the Court… there are a number of things.”NegotiationsFollowing the UN ruling, Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro had been quoted publicly affirming that his Government did not agree with the decision and that continued negotiations would have been preferable.It is understood that now that the matter has been referred to the ICJ, this referral is not contingent on Venezuela’s agreement. When asked about this, Greenidge made it clear that the time for the Good Offices Process had passed, but Government was open to new methods of resolution if prescribed by the UN.“The Good Officer’s Process, as Guyanese know it, has finished. It has been completed. We have been at it for 25 years and within the post-1966 period the mechanisms set out there have all been exhausted. We are now moving towards the one chosen by the SG. We are and will continue to be members of the UN.“Within the framework of the UN, the SG has a role in any dialogue between countries that may pose challenges. I take it that Venezuela is aware of that framework. In that regard, we stand ready to work along with the SG, Venezuela and anyone else in this phase. But the old arrangement, the Good Offices and the attempt by the UN to have other forms of resolution have been exhausted.”Relations between Guyana and Venezuela have been rocky ever since oil giant ExxonMobil announced in 2015 that it had found oil in Guyana. Venezuela has staunchly been against oil exploration in Guyana’s Stabroek Block, where multiple oil deposits were found by ExxonMobil.In fact, Venezuela’s National Assembly had approved an agreement to reject the oil exploration activities in March 2017. Venezuela, with almost 40 times the population of Guyana and a territory that is several times bigger, claimed, in 1968, the entire territorial sea of Guyana by means of the Leoni Decree.In 2015, the Government of Guyana requested then UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, to take steps toward resolving the controversy. In 2016, as a consequence of a stalemate on the matter, the outgoing Ban agreed with his successor, António Guterres, to continue to use the Good Offices Process until the end of 2017 as a means of arriving at a settlement.It is with that intention that Guterres appointed Dag Halvor Nylander as an envoy to resolve the border controversy. According to the mandate of the UN SG’s Personal Representative, “If, by the end of 2017, the Secretary General concludes that no significant progress has been made toward arriving at a full agreement for the solution of the controversy, he will choose the International Court of Justice as the next means of settlement, unless the Governments of Guyana and Venezuela jointly request that he refrain from doing so.”That process expired and Guterres last week ruled that the matter would engage the attention of the Hague, Netherlands-based ICJ, where a panel of distinguished judges will hear Guyana’s case.
One week after inking with the Guyana National Bureau of Standards (GNBS) a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to enable 20 businesses to become standardised and compliant, the Georgetown Chamber of Commerce and Industry (GCCI) has ventured into a new collaboration with the Government Analyst Food and Drug Department (GA-FDD) to further assist those businesses.The MoU in regard to this collaboration was signed on Wednesday with the GA-FDD in the boardroom of the GCCI. Deputy GA-FDD Director Jewel Sears signed on behalf of the GA-FDD, while Executive Director of the GCCI, Richard Rambarran, signed on behalf of the GCCI.The MoU was drafted to benefit agro-processors. On Friday, the GCCI outlined that the two parties will collaborate to enhance “understanding of the quality standards required to operate effectively as an agro-processor in Guyana, and application of knowledge and skills gained to improve food safety practices and food quality”.As part of the agreement, the agro-processors — which include men, women, youths, indigenous groups and even persons with disabilities — would benefit from training to help them develop their standards.“The parties also agree that the scope of work will be carried out according to the terms and conditions stipulated in the accompanying Appendix, subject to mutually agreed amendments from time to time for the new initiatives,” GCCI said.The agreement, which took immediate effect, will be valid for one year, but will be extended for successive periods with the agreement of the parties.GCCI last Thursday inked an agreement with the GNBS which would allow for those businesses to be more competitive.It was explained that the first batch of 20 small, medium and micro-businesses will go through an inspection phase and be selected thereafter.Deodat Indar, GCCI president, explained: “The outcome of the project is to develop those 20 companies in the areas of standardisation, certification, as well as to enable them to have proper GMPs or good manufacturing practices, and also assisting them with proper packaging and labelling of their goods.”These new initiatives for small businesses are being made possible through the partnership of the Caribbean Development Bank (CDB).GNBS Executive Director Candelle Walcott-Bostwick noted that technical assistance and guidance will be given to 20 agro-processors across Guyana to implement good manufacturing practices so that they can become certified and export ready.She added that, with these new standards, the businesses would be able to improve their competitiveness and business operations, enabling them to provide better and safer products for consumption.
A missing native woman, previously reported missing, has been found.Fort St. John RCMP say they received notice Monday evening that Mary Dorothy Hunter had returned home safe.The 67 year-old woman had been reported missing after she was last seen Friday evening getting into a taxi. She had been expected home later that night.- Advertisement -Police are thanking the public for their help in the case.
For more information on The Peace Project and to see the Peace Project Community Plan click here, or call the Fort St. John Women’s Resource Society at 250-787-1121. The project found that those most at risk were women who are isolated, Aboriginal especially those living on reserves, those who are marginalized, women who grew up witnessing violence, and those with low self esteem.Clarice Eckford of the Fort St. John Women’s Resource Society says a lack of proper housing and being able to find child care are among the reasons for violence against women.“Some of the discouraging things would be some of the major gaps in service that affect women and girls who are experiencing violence,” she says. “Some of the big service gaps are things like affordable housing, affordable and accessible child care, and councilling. Those are the three big gaps for families who are experiencing violence especially women and girls.”- Advertisement -She adds there are many things that can be done to help combat the problem but it is not an easy task. In discussions had with service providers, Eckford was told of approximately 30 different programs available, but the degree of staff turnover hinders the public’s awareness of those programs. “There’s lots of different things that needs to be done; it’s such a complex issue. Certainly in Fort St. John there’s a number of contributing factors. There’s addiction issues. Drugs and alcohol play a big factor in violence. In terms of trying to reduce violence against women and girls the big thing is educating the community about what violence is and why it is happening and ways to prevent violence. It’s tough here because the service providers in town are excellent and there’s some really great services. The issue here is that there is quite a high turn over here. There’s a lot of people maybe aren’t aware that certain services exist so those referrals aren’t happening as often as they should be.”Some of the suggestions provided by those taking part in the project included educating youth violence against women and girls, increase community awareness about local services, and changing attitudes in the community about violence against women and girls.Advertisement
Donegal’s two enterprising schoolboy brothers Ronan, 14, and Conor Mc Garvey, 11, of Loughanure have been invited to speak at this year’s ECO-UNESCO’s National Youth ECO-Forum in Dublin this coming Thursday.The brothers set up their wooden pen making enterprise Donegal Pens just over two years ago after taking an interest in woodturning and have reported a steady growth in trade with their pens now in use all over the world. ECO-UNESCO is Ireland’s environmental education and youth organisation affiliated to the World Federation of UNESCO Clubs, Centres and Associations (WFUCA).Each year ECO-UNESCO’s National Youth ECO-Forum brings together young people aged 15 – 18 years from all over Ireland to speak directly with experts and policy-makers, develop youth-led plans for action in their schools and communities and above all, make their voices heard on the issues that are important to them.This year the focus is on entrepreneurship in young people, in particular focusing on green or social entrepreneurship.The forum is aimed at 15-18 year olds and provides a space for them to learn, to debate and discuss ideas. Young people involved come from all over the country and groups are normally affiliated to ECO-UNESCO.The Mc Garvey brothers have been asked to give a presentation on their enterprise at this year’s event that will be attended by around seventy students from various locations across the country.The brothers will explain how they set up their enterprise, how they promoted it and give an overall talk on how the business has succeeded for them.The range of handmade pens produced by the brothers from their garden shed can be viewed at www.donegalpens.comWRITE ON – YOUNG DONEGAL BROTHERS TO SPEAK AT NATIONAL ECO-FORUM was last modified: November 13th, 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:DONEGAL PENSNational Youth ECO Forum
A faded blue boat, rusted and filled with trash, is now docked on Repcik’s lot. The homes, part of the 1960s Princess tract located between Sierra Highway and the Antelope Valley (14) Freeway, were in the midst of four that were yellow- or red-tagged after last January’s deluge. At first, Cedillo and his son Joe Luis moved two blocks down to live with Joe’s parents, Marcos and Manuela Cedillo. Juanita temporarily relocated to a relative’s home in Castaic with the couple’s daughters and grandchildren. In mid-March the family reunited in the three-bedroom home in the San Fernando Valley. Joe Luis, 32, still recovering from cancer treatment, remained at his grandparents’ home. “I had been watching him until he got his strength back up,” Cedillo said. “He was starting to get better around that time. He had gone through chemotherapy and an operation. Then the slide occurred.” His son had lost nearly 100 pounds. Joe Cedillo has been disabled for the last 12 years, since his kidneys failed. Disability payments cannot stretch far enough to rebuild the home. “The Small Business Administration is saying it takes about $600,000 to put back what we had,” he said. “My wife has been baby-sitting. We get by on what we make.” His daughters work, but the family’s combined income falls short of what is needed to replace what was lost. Cedillo still owns the land, which his mortgage company values at $200,000, he said. A deal with one buyer for $100,000 fell through. Joe’s brother Ruben Cedillo, a real estate agent in Pasadena, has been marketing the property since September. He gets 10 to 15 calls a week. “But when they see it they lose complete interest,” Ruben Cedillo said. “They see the scope of the work that’s involved. It’s too big. Realistically, I don’t see anybody purchasing it.” He said because the hillside behind four adjoining lots is unstable, a potential buyer or builder might consider buying all four lots and removing millions of tons of loose dirt before stabilizing the slope, but the profit margin would be questionable. And there’s more. “Once you excavate the hill, there (could be) liability for the homes that sit on top of the hill,” he said. “What happens if there is an earthquake?” Dennis Mak, a senior engineer for the city, said slope failure would need to be dealt with before anyone could develop Cedillo’s property. Solutions could involve removing the slide and rebuilding the slope to building a retaining wall. The state’s insurance companies do not offer landslide coverage. Mak said the city would be involved with the review process, the issuance of a grading permit and subsequent building permits if construction is allowed. A massive black tarp anchored by sandbags drapes the lumpy hill behind the red-tagged house to the left of Cedillo’s property. Neighbors, many of whom express concern for the Cedillos, are nonplussed with the gaping eyesore left by the demolition. They understand the obstacles facing potential buyers and look to the city for help. “I hope they do something nice with the lot; I hope it doesn’t stay like this,” said Becky Cianessi, whose lives across the street. “I hope they build a park. It’s hard to look out at this every morning.” Cianessi said she picks up trash left behind by kids who play in the empty lot. “Is it going to stay like that forever?” asked Cianessi’s neighbor Edward Adams. “Watching the last rain, all it’s going to take is a couple big rains and that whole mountain might come forward. That site definitely concerns us.” He said the city should help restore the property. “I wish they could make it into a park,” said Dennis Cole, whose immaculately manicured yard and attractive home abuts Repcik’s lot. While the city is not responsible for fixing damage on private property, officials decided to help Gulf Coast hurricane victims in late September. The Santa Clarita City Council approved a donation of $66,000 to Habitat for Humanity, the national organization that builds homes for those in need. Gail Ortiz, the city’s spokeswoman, said at the time, the organization was the top choice after city officials reviewed charities soliciting funds for those left homeless by the two hurricanes. “It seemed like really putting communities on the road to recovery, getting people back in their homes was what we wanted to do,” she said. The city of Laguna Beach won’t assist landslide victims there to rebuild, but has stepped forward to help 15 families whose homes were destroyed in the Bluebird Canyon landslide on June 1 collect donations. Profiles of the families are posted on the city’s Web site, and the Adopt-A-Landslide-Family campaign was launched to generate private donations to help the families through the transition period and provide help with rebuilding. Anne Johnson, chairwoman of Laguna’s city planning commission, said about $250,000 in cash and in-kind services have been donated so far. Architects and structural engineers have volunteered their services and people have donated guest houses and trailers. Like Santa Clarita, Laguna Beach defrayed some of the families’ demolition costs, but it does not perform repairs on private property, Johnson said. Donations to the relief campaign, made payable to the city of Laguna Beach, are tax deductible. Johnson said a concerted effort was made to keep the newly homeless residents in town. “All of the families were taken in by friends and neighbors in the community. Dogs, cats and people,” she said.

SANTA CLARITA – A year ago, members of the Cedillo family took one final disbelieving look at their home on Fairgate Avenue in Newhall before it was demolished. It had fallen victim to an unstable hillside and a wall of mud unleashed by storms. Joe and Juanita Cedillos’ home of 30 years and their $500,000-plus nest egg were gone. Today, small mounds of concrete rubble, a few rusted strands of rebar and remnants of a brick wall are all that remain on the vacant lot. Unable to find affordable housing in Santa Clarita, the extended clan has relocated to a house in Pacoima. Despite the hardship, Joe Cedillo remains upbeat. “The great thing, the big thing, is we all got out safe,” he said. “Especially when you look at Louisiana, they had all that disaster and people had nowhere to go. And La Conchita, there was no warning, it came down in one fell swoop.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECoach Doc Rivers a “fan” from way back of Jazz’s Jordan Clarkson The Cedillos lost their house a year ago Monday, in one of many storms that dumped an annual total of more than 50 inches on Santa Clarita. When the couple bought the house in 1976 for $44,500 it had a 50-foot backyard. The hillside slowly cannibalized the yard, until last year, when its appetite extended to the house. Attempts to hold back the invasion with a retaining wall and culverts worked for a time. Joe, Juanita, daughters Maxine, 28, twins Raquel and Roxanne, 30, and four grandchildren had shared the five-bedroom house on Fairgate Avenue. The youngest granddaughter, who celebrates her first birthday today, was born just a day before the family house was declared unsafe to occupy. Weeks later, on Feb. 21 under rainy skies, some family members – surrounded by dozens of curious onlookers – stood in the street for hours as the imperiled home made ominous popping sounds before buckling. Windows burst out, the roof fractured and the second floor obliterated the first. After city officials huddled for two ad hoc meetings in the street, the Cedillo’s home and a nearby one owned by Alberta Repcik – deemed to be an immediate threat to safety and irreparable – were ordered torn down at no cost to the homeowners.

Story Links PDF Box Score Preview Drake sophomore goalkeeper Kelsie Stone (Hoffman Estates, Ill.) finished with five saves in the Bulldogs’ second-straight shutout and third clean sheet of the year. The Bulldogs have beat the Redbirds in back-to-back campaigns for the first time since 2004 and 2005. ESPN3 Live Stats Drake (5-7-0, 2-0-0 MVC) and Illinois State (6-5-2, 1-1-0 MVC) were scoreless at halftime as neither team was able to generate much offense. The Bulldogs and Redbirds swapped shots early in the second half before freshman Alison Walls (Kansas City, Mo.) scored her third goal of the season in the 65th minute (65:06) off an assist from Vanessa Kavan (Lincoln, Neb.). Minutes later, sophomore Olivia Bruce (Lakeville, Minn.) sealed it with her third goal this year after she collected a loose ball off a shot by freshman Halie Reznik (Cumming, Iowa) that Illinois State goalkeeper, Haley Smith, saved but couldn’t hold on to as Bruce rushed in and hammered it home. Bruce and Walls are tied for the team lead in goals with three. Following Saturday’s home game, Drake plays at Loyola Oct. 6 at 7 p.m. The game at Loyola Soccer Park will be streamed on ESPN3. The two teams are tied for first place in the MVC standings. Print Friendly Version “Illinois State is a good team, and the pace of the slick turf made for a fast-paced game. Our midfield was very good at putting their stamp on the game. Sam Nosler (Westfield, Ind.) was superb in the air and Cassie Rohan (Palatine, Ill.) and Hannah Bormann (Amana, Iowa) were not only workers but clever on the ball. Alison Walls’ goal was special and a well-deserved point for Vanessa Kavan who is a big part of our attack. We were looking to be aggressive on the flank, so very pleased with Halie Reznik’s and Annie Schmitz’s (St. Louis, Mo.) mindset to get after their outside back and run at her. When Olivia Bruce is active in the box, she can be a handful, so that’s great for her to get rewarded with a goal. The energy level and focus to perform was very high from our team, as it will need to be when we go to Loyola. This will be an important week in training for us to continue to build on our last two MVC games.” WEST DES MOINES, Iowa – The Drake University women’s soccer team improved to 2-0 in Missouri Valley Conference play with its 2-0 victory over Illinois State Saturday, Sept. 29 night at Tiger Field in West Des Moines, Iowa in cold and wet conditions. The match was moved from the Cownie Soccer Complex due to unplayable field conditions from the heavy rain in the metro area the past two days. Full Schedule Roster “This was an exciting game with moments when we had the run of play and moments when we were absorbing pressure,” said head coach Lindsey Horner. “I was pleased with our ability to translate our week of training on to the field tonight. For the most part we were organized defensively and were a collective block. Our defensive errors were erased by Kelsie Stone, as she showcased how good she is at shot stopping tonight.” at Loyola 10/6/2018 – 7 PM Next Game: Watch Live
