first_imgThe Invincible Eleven Majestic Sports Association has agreed to a six months deal with Samuel Sumo, the coach of 2016 County Meet winners, Montserrado.The agreement, according to reports, was reached yesterday between the management of IE and the former LISCR and BYC II coach, and will expire in August 2017.In an interview with this newspaper, coach Sumo, who acknowledged the current financial and technical challenges that the team is currently facing, said he is going to do his best to put the team in a better position.“I know the team is faced with some challenges, but I am going to make a difference from this end to the middle of the season by making some adjustments in the team and bringing in new players,” he said.He meanwhile called on IE supporters not to abandon the team during this crucial period, but to rather continue their support to the club.The 47-year old with over 10 years of coaching experience, coached Exodus FC from the second division to the first division. He was also the coach of BYC II and deputy coach of LISCR FC.Coach Sumo has so far reached one quarter final of the annual County Meet and three finals, winning the competition in his 2016 appearance with Montserrado County. Invincible Eleven, one of the traditional clubs of Liberian football, has failed to secure a win since the start of the current Cellcom-LFA league.The team has conceded eight defeats and 17 goals – managing to score four goals in their eight league matches.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_img…says 33 is clearly majority of 65…Charrandas Persaud allowed to vote against party listThe Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) on Tuesday threw out Government’s arguments and ruled that the No-Confidence Motion (NCM) that toppled it on December 21, 2018 was indeed validly passed.Charandass Persaud was vindicated by the CCJHanding down the decision was CCJ President, Justice Adrian Justice Saunders, who read a summary of the final judgement. Justice Saunders said that the Court found that 33, and not 34 as the Government and supporters have argued, was the majority the Opposition needed out of 65 Members of Parliament (MPs) to pass the motion.“The CCJ decided that the requirement for “a majority of all the elected members of the National Assembly”, referred to a majority of the total number of votes or seats in the Assembly, irrespective of the number of members who actually vote.”In determining that majority, he added, the Court was of the opinion that the “half plus one rule was not applicable”. Justice Saunders informed the courtroom and viewing public that the majority was clearly at least 33 votes.The CCJ also rejected arguments that former Alliance For Change (AFC) MP Charrandas Persaud was constrained from voting against his list, a major plank of the State’s case. Justice Saunders noted that nothing in the Constitution prevents a crossover vote and as such, his vote was and still is valid. The No-Confidence Motion, the CCJ decided, was validly passed.Meanwhile, Justice Saunders informed that CCJ Judge Maureen Ragnauth-Lee had made the observation in her concurring judgement that the Constitution has to be clear regarding Persaud being prevented from voting against his list. She did not believe, as the Government argued, that such a provision was implicit.On the matter of Persaud’s dual citizenship, Justice Saunders noted that the Court had decided that had the Government really wanted Persaud out of the National Assembly on those grounds, it would have challenged his presence on the candidate list and eligibility to enter the National Assembly long before the vote – in fact, within a month of the coalition’s victory in 2015.“Dual citizens are not allowed to put themselves up for candidacy in elections to the National Assembly. The Court found that the National Assembly (Validity of Elections) Act required that a petition alleging that Mr Persaud was disqualified from running for office would have had to be filed in the High Court of Guyana within 28 days after the publication of the results of the 2015 election.”“Since this case was filed in January 2019, the Court held that the challenge to Mr Persaud’s election to the Assembly had been out of time. The Court also rejected the submission that Mr Persaud was absolutely required to vote against the motion of no confidence along with other members of the Government,” Justice Saunders announced.When it comes to consequential orders, Justice Saunders noted that submissions would be heard in this regard on June 24, 2019.In the immediate aftermath of the vote, former Attorney General Anil Nandlall described the ruling as a triumph for the rule of law. On the other hand, Attorney General Basil Williams admitted that the CCJ “knocked them down” on every conceivable point.President’s responseMeanwhile, President David Granger, in a public address soon after the announcement from the CCJ, claimed to respect the ruling. On the other hand, Granger went back to the position that House-to-House Registration was still necessary, even though the activity would push elections back until after November 2019 and was advised against by the Guyana Elections Commission’s own legal adviser.“The Chairman of the Guyana Elections Commission, Justice Patterson, has previously informed me that the Commission will be ready to hold elections in November 2019. This will be after the completion of House-to-House Registration. I now await a recommendation for a specific date from GECOM and I will then issue a proclamation,” Granger said.The list of electors, which was used as recently as the last Local Government Elections last year, only expired April month-end. Further, legal arguments are that a simple and less time-consuming claims and objections process can be embarked upon to update the list to ensure persons eligible to vote are registered. This was, however, ignored by the President in his address.Now that the motion has been validated, Article 106 (6) which states, “The Cabinet including the President shall resign if the Government is defeated by the vote of a majority of all the elected members of the National Assembly on a vote of confidence” will take effect, something which Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo has been calling for since the passage of the motion on December 21, 2018.last_img read more

first_imgLee Carsley’s reign at Brentford started with a defeat as Birmingham ran out 2-0 winners at Griffin Park to move up to fifth.Carsley, who took the Bees hotseat earlier on Tuesday after Marinus Dijkhuizen was dismissed, was unable to install a change in fortunes at the west London club against one of his former sides.Two second-half goals from Michael Morrison and Clayton Donaldson ensured Birmingham picked up their first win in four league games and inflicted a fifth league defeat of the season on Brentford.Elsewhere, Fulham’s emphatic 4-0 over London rivals QPR on Friday seems a distant memory after Wolves comprehensively ran out 3-0 winners at Craven Cottage.The game’s turning point came when the Cottagers were deservedly reduced to 10 men after Tom Cairney’s two-footed lunge on Adam Le Fondre.Le Fondre then dusted himself off to open the scoring just before the hour mark, while Sheyi Ojo and a brilliant James Henry free kick completed the scoring as Wolves picked up their first away triumph since the first day of the season.

first_imgThe day of CAO offers is one of the most feared and anticipated for a Leaving Certificate student.By Caoimhe Ní ChathailDonegal Daily once again took the opportunity to talk to Gavin, Síofra, Shane and Martina. It seems that for them and for many of Donegal’s students, the future is very bright!Gavin:Gavin ‘didn’t run out of bed, just the usual routine.’ He was delighted to receive his number one CAO choice. He won’t be accepting it however as his plan is to study Mathematics and Computer Science in Queens, where his acceptance is now definite. Gavin chose the course as it gives him ‘a good platform to launch a number of potential careers’. Although he is nervous, Gavin is incredibly excited to begin!Síofra: Having woken up at 8, Síofra’s computer chose Monday of all days to do ‘the mother of all updates’ but finally the wait was over. ‘Today was (probably) the end of the long road that has brought me all over the emotional spectrum.’ Síofra ended up with two choices and though she mightn’t have been offered ‘the coveted “No 1″’, she is still delighted. Síofra will now go on to study Arts (English & History) in UCD; two subjects which have always fascinated her. In terms of her future career, Síofra explains that, ‘writing is always the end goal, though what route I’ll take, I’m not sure.’Shane:For Shane, ‘Everything went brilliantly.’ His celebrations had still been carrying on the night before and so waking up at 12 to an official offer for his first choice of Architecture in UCD was perfect. Shane chose the course because of his love for drawing and ‘creating an intelligent piece of useful art’. Having found Technical Drawing and Construction easy at school, Shane is really excited to begin his course. He also received a scholarship for accommodation subject to his promotion of the Irish language on campus.Martina:Describing herself as ‘not a morning person’, Martina didn’t wake up early but when she did, was delighted to find confirmation of an offer for her first choice of Arts in Galway. Martina’s plan is to become a French and Irish teacher following her degree. As a self-confessed ‘homebird’, Martina’s thoughts of college ‘are being met with trepidation’ but she hopes that as soon as she settles in she will find that all her nerves ‘will have been for nothing’. From Arts in Galway to Architecture in Dublin, the variety of courses accepted by Donegal students is vast. We wish all students the very best of luck as they look forward to the next few years of college and wish them all the best in the future![ENDS]CAO OFFERS: THROUGH THE EYES OF DONEGAL STUDENTS was last modified: August 20th, 2013 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:CAO offersdonegalstudentslast_img read more

NEW YORK (AP) – Isaac Hayes has quit “South Park,” where he voices Chef, saying he can no longer stomach its take on religion. Hayes, who has played the ladies’ man/school cook in the animated Comedy Central satire since 1997, said in a statement Monday that he feels a line has been crossed. “There is a place in this world for satire, but there is a time when satire ends and intolerance and bigotry towards religious beliefs of others begins,” the 63-year-old soul singer and outspoken Scientologist said. “Religious beliefs are sacred to people, and at all times should be respected and honored,” he continued. “As a civil rights activist of the past 40 years, I cannot support a show that disrespects those beliefs and practices.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECasino Insider: Here’s a look at San Manuel’s new high limit rooms, Asian restaurant “South Park” co-creator Matt Stone responded sharply in an interview with The Associated Press Monday, saying, “This is 100 percent having to do with his faith of Scientology… He has no problem – and he’s cashed plenty of checks – with our show making fun of Christians.” Last November, “South Park” targeted the Church of Scientology and its celebrity followers, including actors Tom Cruise and John Travolta, in a top-rated episode called “Trapped in the Closet.” In the episode, Stan, one of the show’s four mischievous fourth graders, is hailed as a reluctant savior by Scientology leaders, while a cartoon Cruise locks himself in a closet and won’t come out. Stone told The AP he and co-creator Trey Parker “never heard a peep out of Isaac in any way until we did Scientology. He wants a different standard for religions other than his own, and to me, that is where intolerance and bigotry begin.”last_img read more

first_imgSYLMAR – A 21-year-old Sylmar man has been charged with animal cruelty in connection with the abandonment of his Chihuahua in the gutter after the dog was hit by a car.

first_imgA group of walkers got a huge shock when a rare White-tailed eagle fell from the sky and crash-landed beside them at Glenveagh National Park.The walkers were traveling along the popular Bridal Path when the bizarre incident happened on Sunday last.The bird, one which was reintroduced to Ireland as part of a breeding programme, crashed through trees and landed on a large boulder beside the group. The bird, known as Fiadhna, had the letter F on its back as well as a satellite antenna when it fell close to an area known as the Long Hollow.Rangers knew the bird was in the area but its solar antenna had ceased working and it had been thought she had been killed.Now it’s thought its solar antenna’s battery had simply gone flat because of the lack of sunshine.The walkers from Derry managed to snatch a picture of the bird before running for help more than a mile away at Glenveagh Castle. Pat Vaughan of the National Parks and Wildlife Trust rushed to the scene and despite getting there just half an hour after the crash-landing, Fiadhna was gone.A group of rangers carried out a full search of scrubland around the area but there was no sign of the majestic bird which has been tracked to many counties including Kilkenny, Clare, Galway, Louth, Kerry and Tipperary.Lorcan O’Toole of the Golden Eagle Trust said he thinks a pair of Golden Eagles which are living in the area may have attacked Fiadhna.“The only reasonable guess we have is that the White-tailed Eagle was simply dive bombed by a territorial Golden Eagle and struck in mid air, by closed talons and fell to the ground as a result.“This may account for the commotion heard overhead, but not seen, before the eagle crashed through the treetops,” he said. Mr O’Toole said it was encouraging that the ancient competition between White-tailed Eagles and Golden Eagles is once again playing itself out above the Mountains and Loughs of Ireland.SHOCK AS EAGLE FALLS FROM THE SKY IN GLENVEAGH NATIONAL PARK was last modified: January 10th, 2012 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:Bridal Pathglenveagh national parkLorcan o’TooleWhite-tailed eaglelast_img read more
