St George’s, Excelsior in crucial clash

first_imgSt George’s College will look to maintain their perfect record when they face Excelsior High in a top-of-the-table clash in Group A of the ISSA-FLOW Manning Cup preliminary stage at Winchester Park, North Street today. Match time is 3 p.m.The Light Blues have scored five wins from as many starts to be on top in the group on maximum 15 points, just ahead of Excelsior who are on 13. Greater Portmore are also on 13, but have played two more games. Tivoli Gardens are on three points and Tarrant High are without a point in the group.With that scenario, a win for either St George’s or Excelsior will strengthen their chances of finishing the group on top. This will also ensure a spot in the prestigious FLOW Super Cup as well as the Walker Cup knockout competitions.The teams’ first round game on September 20 at the Stadium East was abandoned following the death of former St George’s captain Dominic James. He collapsed early in the match and was rushed to hospital where he was pronounced dead. His funeral will be held tomorrow at Holy Trinity Cathedral on North Street.When the game was called off Excelsior were leading 2-1 late in the first half.St George’s College’s assistant coach, Marcel Gayle, says his team treats every game as being very important and today’s clash will be no difference.”Every game is important. We want to go out there and do our best. We are improving by scoring more goals and will look to continue that way,” Gayle told The Gleaner yesterday.St George’s will look to new captain Alex Marshall, Akeem Robotham, Ronaldo Watson and former Wolmer’s player Akiki Jackson to continue their winning streak.Excelsior’s technical director Xavier Gilbert is fully aware of the importance of the game.”It is a very important game for both teams. We want to stay in line for the FLOW Super Cup, so we have been preparing for this game,” Gilbert declared.”The team is coming on, although we are not yet where we want to be. However, the aim is to go there for a win,” the former St George’s cricket star added.Excelsior will look to national Under-17 striker Raewin Senior, Christopher Thorpe, Thorne Buchanan and Cadine Graham for a positive result.Today’s gamesTivoli Gardens vs TarrantSt George’s College vs ExcelsiorAscot vs Kingston CollegeSt Mary’s College vs Denham TownPapine vs St Mary’s CollegeHaile Selassie vs MeadowbrookSt Catherine vs Jonathan GrantPembroke Hall vs ArdenneJosÈ Marti vs Wolmer’sEdith Dalton James vs DunoonCamperdown vs Kingston TechnicalCalabar vs CumberlandHydel vs Campion CollegeBridgeport vs St JagoVauxhall vs Jamaica College(With the exception of the St George’s-Excelsior match, all other games start at 3:30 p.m. Home teams named first.)ISSA-FLOW Manning Cup points standingsGroup ATeams P W D L GF GA GD PtsSt George’s 5 5 0 0 30 1 29 15Excelsior 5 4 1 0 18 3 15 13G Portmore 7 4 1 2 15 16 -1 13Tivoli 6 1 0 5 6 17 -11 3Tarrant 7 0 0 7 3 35 -32 0Group BJC 5 4 1 0 13 2 11 13STATHS 5 1 3 1 3 4 -1 6Eltham 5 0 2 1 2 8 -6 2Group CKC 8 7 1 0 44 1 43 22D Town 8 6 1 1 13 4 9 19Papine 7 3 1 3 16 7 9 10ST Mary’s 7 1 2 4 6 23 -17 5Ascot 8 1 2 5 6 27 -21 5N Manley 7 0 3 4 4 18 -14 3Group DH Selassie 7 6 0 1 14 5 9 18St Catherine 7 5 2 0 10 2 8 17J Grant 7 5 1 1 15 5 10 16Ardenne 7 2 1 4 5 13 -8 7M’brook 7 1 0 6 5 12 -7 3P Hall 7 0 0 7 2 14 -12 0Group EH Trinity 7 6 0 1 15 3 12 18C Smith 7 5 0 2 17 6 11 15Waterford 6 4 0 2 18 6 12 12Mona 6 0 1 5 2 18 -16 1C Carthy 6 0 1 5 0 17 -17 1Group FWolmer’s 8 8 0 0 30 1 29 24C’down 7 4 1 2 14 8 6 13Dunoon 7 3 0 4 6 13 -7 9J Marti 8 2 2 4 8 12 -4 8Edith Dalton 6 0 0 6 2 25 -23 0Group GBridgeport 8 5 2 1 11 5 6 17St Jago 7 5 1 1 13 2 11 16Hydel 7 3 3 1 21 4 17 12Calabar 8 4 0 4 16 6 10 12C’land 8 2 1 5 8 14 -6 7Campion 8 0 1 7 0 37 -37 0KTHS 7 2 1 4 5 6 -1 7last_img read more

EPA, GIZ Host Stakeholders Training

first_imgStakeholders at the workshop-Kigali Amendment to Montreal Protocol highlightedThe Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the German Agency for International Cooperation (GIZ) on Wednesday, August 29, conducted a day-long training workshop aimed at creating massive awareness around the Kigali Amendment to the Montreal Protocol.The training brought together scores of participants from various agencies and institutions.The Montreal Protocol, which was amended on October 15, 2016, in Kigali, Rwanda, is another global commitment to stop climate change. EPA Chief Technical Advisor, Levi Z. Piah said that technicians have already started discussing the implementation of the protocol with mix views, while some are suggesting that Hybrid Fiber Coaxial (HFC) be banned. Others want high tariff placed on the importation into the country of substances that deplete the ozone layer.HFC network is a telecommunication technology in which optical fiber cable and coaxial cable are used in different portions of a network, to carry broadband contents such as video, data, and voice.Mr. Piah said some of the suggestions the technicians have made would come up during the training, and asked the gathering comprising representatives of line government entities, vocational schools, and professional associations to consider the safety of the population and the environment.He lauded GIZ for providing funding for the training which, according to him, is important to the health and safety of Liberians and also good for the environment.The training was also intended to seek measures of mitigating harsh environmental impacts, such as sea erosion, flooding, and deforestation that the country is currently experiencing.With more than half of West Africa’s remaining rainforest that covers about 45 percent of the country, some 4.3 million hectares, Liberia is a central figure in the fight against climate in the region, the African continent and globally as the forest plays a major role in absorbing a huge amount of greenhouse gas. In spite of this great advantage, the country continues to experience the worst impact of the menace.He also said that the importation into the country of cheap electronic products like mobile phones, which chemical composition remains unknown, is unhealthy; noting that what is cheap may also be expensive.The Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer was designed to reduce the production and consumption of ozone depleting substances in order to reduce their abundance in the atmosphere. The protocol was agreed on September 16 in 1987, and entered into force on January 1, 1989.The subsequent amendment in Kigali stipulates that developed countries will begin reducing HFCs as early as 2019, while developing countries will start later.Participants in group photoKatharina Arndt of GIZ  said that in the context of regulating ozone depleting substances, we believe it is of great significance to highlight the importance of the refrigeration and air conditioning sector, when it comes to not only ozone layer protection but also mitigation of greenhouse gas emissions and the use of energy efficient cooling technology.She assured that the HCFH Phase-out management plan for Liberia that is being implemented by GIZ under the Montreal Protocol, supports the country to meet its requirement to phase out ozone damaging fluoridated gases in the cooling sector.Madam Arndt said the forum is intended to enable and support the cooling sector, its industry and training institutions, opening up space for questions, doubts and discussions on the way forward as the Kigali Amendment and the planned HFC phase-down have further implications for the cooling sectorShare this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

DJ in ECD accident dies, girlfriend hospitalised

first_imgFive days after colliding with a motor lorry along the Haslington Public Road, on the East Coast of Demerara (ECD), a labourer attached to the Guyana Power and Light (GPL) succumbed to his injuries while receiving medical attention at the Georgetown Public Hospital.The deceased: Kristoff SpencerKristoff Spencer, 21, of Lot 99 Charles Street, Golden Grove, ECD took his last breath in the wee hours of Sunday morning.

Since then, both Spencer and Scott have been patients at the GPHC. Wilson explained that the young man started to deejay with Real Vibes after which he joined the Gold Rock Music System. He described Spencer as a young man full of potential, who socialised with the ‘crew’ when he was not at work. He was a lover of music and a very caring young man.Several close friends took to Facebook to express shock at the passing of the young man. Former Carib Soca Monarch, Kwasi “Ace” Edmondson related that Spencer was indeed a young man who was eager to learn and was versed in the deejay business.Edmondson expressed his deepest sympathies to the family and close friends of the deejay.However, the driver of the motor lorry was arrested and released after the 72-hour detention period had expired.In light of the death of the young man, the Police are expected to institute charges against the lorry driver.Spencer leaves to mourn his parents and four siblings. An autopsy is expected to be performed today.last_img read more

Making the Most of Meal Times

first_imgBy Dora Doss, M.S., SLP-CCCImage from by Angel Nieto, CC0As a speech and language pathologist (SLP) and mother of three children ages 14, 11, and 3, I enjoy family mealtimes for the social, language, and bonding opportunities they provide.  Yet when my boys were 3 and 1, I worked full time while my spouse was deployed and dinnertime was our most challenging time of day. Often, one child wanted to play and the other cried while I cooked and served dinner – certainly not the most conducive setting for quality mealtime interactions.  As an early childhood professional, I was keenly aware of the value of family mealtimes and I wanted to capitalize on this after being away from my kids all day, and yet it was still very difficult.So, I decided to try something a little different.  Instead of trying to force quality time at the end of a long day, I turned my attention towards making our weekend breakfast meals the quality family mealtime I had tried so hard to foster during the week.  In order to achieve this, I did two things. First, I let go of the pressure to have a sit-down meal with my boys; often I served, ate, and cleaned up simultaneously.  Even though I was up and moving during meal time, I was still able to engage in meaningful ways with them.  Second, I had a friend who was experiencing the same challenge with her children.  Collaboratively we had meals together once a week (sometimes more) when our husbands were away due to work obligations. These somewhat simple changes made a big difference in the quality of my family’s meal time interactions during this stressful period of raising children as a military spouse.Interestingly, research has found that more complex language structures occur during family mealtimes[i] than during play time and book reading.[ii]  Simple things such as labeling “apple,” requesting “more apples,” and commenting “my apple” all promote the use of a variety of communicative functions. Caregivers may expand on the child’s utterances by using self-talk, such as, “I’m taking a bite of my apple,” and parallel talk such as, “You took a bite of your green apple,” which provide exposure to meaningful language without the need for the child to imitate or respond.  Mealtimes are also rich with narratives and turn taking, not to mention the cultural and social connections that are fostered.Sometimes families or professionals may wonder if mealtimes can be equally beneficial for a child with a more severe communication deficit or a child who does not receive nutrition orally.  I would suggest that, yes, family meals are just as important, if not more so.  A child who does not receive nutrition orally can benefit from the sensory aspect of smells and also from the sharing of language, cultural, and social experiences with family members surrounding food.  A child who has a severe communication deficit can be exposed to the language rich environment of mealtime while communication opportunities can be modified to meet their needs.  All children, regardless of communication ability, benefit from the structure and routine of a shared mealtime.Providers should consider a family’s unique schedule to optimize suggestions for family mealtimes, that would promote a positive atmosphere[iii] and caregivers who are warm and engaged.  As I mentioned earlier, in my own personal experience, this was more likely to occur around our family breakfast table on Saturdays and Sundays than on our rushed weeknights.  Be creative to help each family determine what mealtimes might work best for them and their unique circumstances.  Additionally, Luther and Lantendresse (2005) found positive outcomes for mealtime interactions with only one caregiver present.[iv]   The connection established during a shared meal or snack[v] between the caregiver and the child is what is most important.Communicative mealtime interactions lay the foundation for continued family meals[i] later which can foster growth and development throughout childhood.  Therefore, establishing this routine early in life is important.  Now that my children are older, I’m glad I persevered to establish a mealtime routine when they were young.  Having added a third child to our family in the last few years, we have dinner 4-5 times a week together, and these family meals have become a cherished routine for us.  It is fun to see my 3-year-old daughter’s language grow to keep pace with her big brothers, and we all enjoy the humor in the many wonderful things she chooses to discuss with us.[i] Anderson, J., & Trumbull, D.
