STETHS too hot for Lacovia

first_imgWestern Bureau:Striker Michael ‘Diddy’ Kerr, it seems, can do no wrong for St Elizabeth Technical High School (STETHS).A hat-trick from the hot striker yesterday fired STETHS to a 4-0 rout of Lacovia High in Group E of the 2015 ISSA-FLOW daCosta Cup in Santa Cruz.Kerr has now scored seven goals in his last two matches following a four-timer against Newell on Thursday.Neville Graham added the home team’s fourth goal, which saw STETHS overtaking their opponents to go top of the group on 11 points, the same as BB Coke, who were held to a 0-0 draw by Newell.Also in Group E, Munro College edged Maggotty 1-0 to keep alive their slim hopes of advancing to the next round.In the STETHS-Lacovia clash, Kerr struck the opener with a blistering shot to beat goalkeeper Andre Frater in the 29th minute. His second came from the penalty spot after Lacovia defender Kemar Thomas was issued a red card for intentionally handling the ball in the area.Kerr sent Frater the wrong way to make the score 2-0 in the 66th minute and added his third of the match in the 80th to cap a fine evening for his school. Morgan struck in the 73rd minute, with Kerr providing the assist.PAID OFF HANDSOMELY”We play hard everyday and it paid off handsomely today,” buzzed STETHS coach Omar Wedderburn.”Kerr has been exceptional in attack, especially because we now can play the sort of game we love to play. We are still looking at December 5 – the daCosta Cup final,” reasoned Wedderburn.Meanwhile, defending champions Clarendon College maintained their unbeaten run in Group H by defeating Thompson Town, 3-1, for their tenth point in four matches. Edwin Allen also won yesterday, edging Lennon 2-1.As a result of the win, Edwin Allen moved to within striking distance on nine points, with Lennon dropping to third on seven points.

Nadal finally back in Wimbledon quarterfinals after 7 years

first_img‘High crimes and misdemeanors’: Trump impeachment trial begins While Nadal has found grass difficult of late, he insists some of those results were misleading.“To be fair and honest, we have to think about the things that happened. In 2012, 2013, I was not able to compete. Even if I played, I was not able to compete with the knees the way I had. (In) 2014, I played a good tournament. I lost in the fourth round against a player I can lose to (Nick Kyrgios), 2015 was a very bad year for me, not on grass, on most of the surfaces. It’s normal that I lost here, too. In 2016 I didn’t play because of my wrist. In 2017 I played well, 2018 I am playing well.”Vesely can attest to that.Nadal hit 37 winners to only 12 unforced errors and erased the only break he allowed by breaking back immediately in the third set.His play already has fans and commentators dreaming of another final between Nadal and Roger Federer — on the 10th anniversary of their five-set classic that the Spaniard won. Standing in the way yet could be fourth-seeded Juan Martin del Potro in the quarterfinals — the Argentine’s fourth-round match was suspended with him holding a 2-1 set lead — and then possibly three-time champion Djokovic in the semifinals.ADVERTISEMENT Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew The idea of another Nadal-Federer final seems to have most people quite excited — except Nadal himself. The Spaniard is hoping his old rival, and eight-time champion, gets knocked out before that.“If he’s in the final, I am excited to play Roger,” he said. “Facing Roger again will be something fantastic. If you ask me if I prefer another (opponent), I say yes. That’s the point.

Parents protest conditions at Mocha Nursery

first_imgIn the wake of the protest by parents of Mocha Nursery School pupils over the unsatisfactory conditions, Chief Education Officer Olato Sam has said he has not received a report on the incident.The Education Ministry official made the disclosure and declined to further comment when contacted by Guyana Times about what mechanisms were being put in place to rectify the situation.A crowd of parents and guardians as well as other residents of Mocha Arcadia, East Bank Demerara began their protest on Monday outside the Nursery School, forcing its temporary closure. Equipped with placards, the demonstrators pleaded with Government to acknowledge their concerns about the hazardous and sordid conditions pupils were forced to endure on a daily basis.Parents highlighted that their complaints have gone unheeded over the years and they could no longer accept what their children were forced to experience. They said the school’s shaky, rotting structure was cause for worry in addition to the overgrown grass in the schoolyard which harboured snakes and other dangerous creatures. They related that on numerous occasions, the pupils would complain of snakes in the lavatory. Other persons expressed dissatisfaction over the insanitary conditions of the toilets.Although complaints were made about the issue, they reportedly “fell on deaf ears” as nothing was ever done.One resident who identified herself as Cathy George maintained that a new nursery school was needed given the current state of the school and the increased population of the community.When this publication visited the school on Tuesday, the teachers had locked the doors and windows and refused to provide any information.last_img read more

P-SAC issues first drilling activity update of 2016

first_imgCALGARY, A.B. — Yet another sign this week that the downturn in the oil patch is not about to be reversed anytime soon.The Calgary-based Petroleum Services Association of Canada has issued the first drilling activity update since what it forecast late last year for 2016.The Nov. 3 forecast projected 5,150 wells to be drilled in Canada this year, but it’s now calling for about a five per cent decrease of 250 wells.- Advertisement -It is basing the update on average natural gas prices of $2.50 Canadian per million cubic feet, crude oil prices of $38 a barrel U.S., and a Canada/U.S. exchange rate averaging 72 cents U.S.All those numbers are also down from the November forecast, but it’s also worth noting the numbers in the latest forecast are higher than what the commodity markets were showing at the time of the news release yesterday morning, when the price of natural gas was only $2.20, the price of crude oil was only $31.77, and the Canadian dollar was trading at only 70.92 cents.On a provincial basis, P-SAC now estimates about 330 wells to be drilled in B.C. this year — down 14, or about a four per cent drop from 344 in its’ original forecast.Advertisement In Alberta, the drop is estimated at 15 wells, to 2,718, down from 2,733, but in that province, it’s less than a one per cent drop from the November forecast — and the smallest among the four western provinces.In Saskatchewan, an eight per cent drop, has resulted in a revised forecast of 1,643 wells from 1,789. The new Manitoba forecast is for only 205 wells, down more than 25 per cent, from the November prediction of 280.P-SAC President and CEO Mark Salkeld says “I’m afraid were not out of the woods yet, and we’re still getting in the way of our own success,” but he adds, “We’re resilient and extremely good at what we do, and we’ll come out of this slump.”last_img read more
