first_img The visitors were pegged back largely by rookie leg-spinner Damion Jacobs, who picked up four for 53 from his 10 overs. “It was a really good sign that our bowlers got some time in the middle before it started raining. It was turning out to be a good game,” Amla said. “They bowled well. It started raining and the ball got really wet, but even then they bowled decently. Getting overs under the belt is the most important thing.” South Africa will join hosts West Indies and world champions Australia in Guyana for the Tri-Nations Series, which runs from June 3-26. The series will move on to St Kitts from June 11-15 before winding up in Barbados. Though the majority of the Proteas unit are coming off the Indian Premier League, which climaxed last Sunday, Amla said he did not foresee any major problems with the transition from Twenty20 cricket to the 50-overs format. “I don’t think (the difference) is that big. The only thing is that you have a lot of time to set the game up,” the former captain said. “You have to remind yourself that there is a lot of time still left in the game, but it’s a lot easier to go from T20s to one-dayers than from a Test match.” GOOD SIGN PORT-OF-SPAIN, Trinidad (CMC): Opener Hashim Amla says Sunday’s one-day tour match against the WICB President’s XI was important in South Africa’s build-up to the start of the Tri-Nations Series later this week, even though rain ruined the contest at Queen’s Park Oval. Opting to bat, the Proteas piled up 280 for nine off their 50 overs, and the President’s XI were 127 for three in the 25th over when rained arrived to end the game prematurely. The game was ruled a tie under Duckworth/Lewis. “It was a great outing for us. When you come to a foreign country, the most important thing is having time on the legs, especially some of the guys who haven’t played in a while,” said the prolific opener, who top-scored with 92. “We put up a good total on the board. Fortunately I managed to get some runs and a few of the lower order batsmen as well, which is quite handy.”last_img read more

first_imgPreparation and discipline enabled the Jamaica Defence Force (JDF) to take top honours in the National Amateur Boxing Championships held at the Stanley Couch Gym in Kingston last weekend. Ten gyms participated, and the JDF scored an impressive 42 points, well ahead of Stanley Couch 22, Bruising 17, St Thomas 14, G.C. Foster 10, Oracabessa 6, Heavy Metal 5, Dream Sports 4, Boys Town 3 and Sugar Olympic 2. Special guests at the finals on Saturday were Oliver McCall, former world heavyweight champion; and USA boxing promoter Chris Joy. The army men were superior to the other teams in every department, and although some of their bouts were keenly contested, they were able to produce the extra spark at the right moment to take the honours. They were very aggressive in the closing 10 seconds of each round, a tactic that paid rich dividends for them. The most exciting bout of the night, was the lightweight contest between the army’s Marvin Shea and Sanjay Williams from Bruising gym, who reached the finals by dethroning defending champion Ricardo Carter from G.C. Foster gym. SPLIT DECISION In a torrid third round, in which both boxers let it all out, Shea’s consistency ruled the day, and he came away with a split decision. He was also voted the outstanding boxer of the competition. Former middleweight champion Janathan Hanson, from Stanley Couch, regained his title with a good victory over Alando Lewis from Heavy Metal gym. Hanson was methodical, and Lewis did not challenge him enough during the encounter to give himself a better chance of victory. The bouts in the heavier weight classes ended with decisions that neither the losers nor the crowd agreed with. In the light-heavyweight division, Ian Darby from the JDF was given the nod over Carlos Dwyer from Stanley Couch. Dwyer was impressive, but the hard working Darby got the nod from the judges. There was also crowd displeasure with the decision in the heavyweight division, when army man Bassanio Shaw outpointed Clive Thomas from St Thomas. This, too, was close, but Shaw finished each round with a flurry of activity, and this assisted his cause. In the Super heavyweight division, veteran Dukey Rowe from Stanley Couch, used his experience to defeat Ricardo Brown from the G.C. Foster gym. The army’s Gilbert Vaz was named the outstanding coach, and a special award was given by the Jamaica Boxing Board to referee/judge Ransford Burton for his invaluable service to boxing.last_img read more

first_imgThe Ministry of Health and Social Welfare (MOHSW) Thursday, May 8, celebrated the International Children’s Mental Health Day under the theme, “Inspiring Resilience, Creative Hope.”The event, held on the compound of the Health Ministry, brought together government officials students and community dwellers.Speaking at the occasion, Yeetlen Niapeh, a Medical Health practitioner at the John F. Kennedy Medical Center (JFK) urged parents to promote resilience amongst their children in order to help them solve their mental challenges; adding that they (parents) should be resilient in their speeches and activities.She noted that Liberia has no mental health facilities and medications to help children combat mental health issues.“We do not have mental health facilities here, so parents, community dwellers, and family members should help children in the process. Mental health problem is difficult to the upbringing of every child, so we must take a step in helping these children, because they are our future and Liberia wants the best of them,” she said. Madam Niapeh highlighted peer pleasure, early marriage and teenage pregnancy as some of the challenges that lead to mental health disorder in children.She recommended to the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare that a policy be put in place to address cases of mental illness in children.“I will also want to recommend that the Catherine Mills Mental Health facility is rehabilitated. With that we will have a starting point and from there, we know where to go again.”She also called on school authorities to create counseling sections in our schools because, the children spend most of their hours in school,” she said.Also speaking, Mrs. Theresa J. Grandoe, Deputy Chief of Interpol Liberia National Police, acknowledged that mental health problems are originated from the home and family.She noted that most family members tend not to know about their children’s daily activities, adding that as a result, many children get involved to move around with the wrong friends.She also urged parents to report to the LNP if they have cases of exploitation against their children, because exploitation is one of the main causes that lead to mental health disorder.“Liberia needs a strong law to combat drugs trafficking. We need to join hands to track down culprits that are making the lives of our children difficult and stop them from escaping. We have started what we call the Yellow Notice. This is to help trace perpetrators of crimes. Once you have a case of sexual violence and exploitation, just report the case and if we enter it in our data base, we can track down criminals no matter where they are,” she stressed.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_imgIn light of the recent incident at the St George’s High School that left Auburn Campbell, 15, nursing chop wounds to his hands, Chief Education Officer (CEO) Olato Sam has indicated he is collaborating with Police to implement measures to prevent recurrence of a similar nature.Chief Education Officer Olato SamIt was reported that the attack on Campbell stemmed from an altercation that occurred on Monday after the assailant allegedly made a remark that a female student “smelled of sex”. Campbell reportedly told the female about the remarks made, which angered the assailant, resulting in a scuffle between him and Campbell.Thinking the matter resolved, Campbell attended school as per normal the next day, only to be greeted by the assailant and his mother, who reportedly instigated the matter after allegedly commenting, “Wha he gon get, he look for” as well as instructing her son to chop his classmate.Melinda Campbell parent of the injured student, expressed frustration with the lack of action taken by law enforcement and the school’s disciplinary system. In reference to this, Sam said there is an ongoing investigation to evaluate the situation to determine what measures can be taken.Meanwhile, in another incident at Tucville Secondary School, a fourth form student was relieved of her cellular phone after a man approached her demanding her valuables.The student angered the man after refusing to relinquish her items; he then forcibly took away her cellular phone and began to flee after he realised the commotion had caught the attention of other students who were coming to the young woman’s aid.The perpetrator in possession of a knife, reportedly threatened to stab anyone that followed him, causing students to discontinue their chase.Chanise Brotherson the student’s mother, claimed that she was informed of the incident by the school’s administration.

first_img Trebilcock seemed to favor Ohio State throughout her short recruiting process, but said her trip to UConn this week was so good, it made the decision tougher than she anticipated. “There’s a reason coach (Geno) Auriemma and Connecticut have been so successful, and I was fortunate to be able to experience that first hand,” she said. Ultimately, she chose Ohio State. She’d formed a close bond with Buckeyes’ coach Jim Foster and the team on her visit two weeks ago. “His personality reminds me a lot of (Hart High) coach (Dave) Munroe, and we had a great relationship,” she said. “He’s the kind of coach who doesn’t have to raise his voice, or yell or scream, his players just naturally respect him. “He’s an amazing basketball coach, all you have to do is look at what he’s done to see that. But I also think he will help me grow as a person, and we’ll have a great relationship.” Ramona Shelburne, (818) 713-3617 ramona.shelburne@dailynews.com 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

She said she still was undecided until she returned home late Friday night. She won’t have much time to get ready for her new school. She’s flying today to Columbus, Ohio, where classes begin Jan. 3. Because of NCAA transfer rules, she will have to sit out one year, meaning she’ll be eligible to play for the Buckeyes in December. Ohio State returns most of its core group next year, including 6-5 All-American center Jessica Davenport, who will be a senior. The 5-foot-9 guard was a Parade All-American at Hart, where she holds nearly every school record. She committed to UCLA in the fall of her junior year, but didn’t last long in baby blue and gold. Just four games into her freshman season, on Nov. 30, Trebilcock announced her intention to transfer. UCLA granted her release to any school outside the Pacific 20 Conference. Within a week, she had over 30 scholarship offers. She narrowed the list to four – Ohio State, Connecticut, Oklahoma and Georgia – and visited the first three before canceling her trip to Georgia this week. center_img It’s take two for Ashlee Trebilcock. The former Hart High of Newhall standout announced on Saturday that she will play for Ohio State, choosing the Buckeyes over Connecticut. last_img read more
