Bournemouth halted a four-match winless run with a 3-0 victory over Norwich that was completed by $17 million record signing Benik Afobe, a recent recruit for the newcomers, after goals from Dan Gosling and Charlie Daniels. The win lifted Bournemouth a place above Norwich into 15th – only a point behind Chelsea. Newcastle climbed out of the relegation zone to move two points behind Norwich by beating West Ham 2-1 through first-half goals from Ayoze Perez and Georginio Wijnaldum. With fifth-place West Ham losing, it was an even better day for Tottenham, which moved four points ahead of its London rival by coming from behind to beat Sunderland 4-1. James Ward-Prowse scored twice and Dusan Tadic as Southampton beat West Bromwich Albion 3-0. Additional minute LONDON (AP): In an English Premier League campaign about restoring pride at Chelsea, the fallen champions still ensure their games cannot be ignored. It’s not just fascination with watching a wealthy team in decline. Yesterday, a dreary opening 45 minutes against Everton made way for a thrilling second half that started with John Terry’s own goal and ended with the captain scoring in the right net in the eighth minute of stoppage time to clinch a 3-3 draw. Even Chelsea manager Guus Hiddink – unbeaten since replacing the fired Jose Mourinho last month – accepted Terry was offside when he flicked the ball past goalkeeper Tim Howard in stoppage time. Everton manager Roberto Martinez was aggrieved that the referee played an additional minute of injury time when seven had been indicated on the fourth official’s board just after Ramiro Funes Mori made it 3-2 in the 90th minute. Everton led through Terry’s own goal and Kevin Mirallas’ strike on the turn before Diego Costa and Cesc Fabregas scored for Chelsea. “There is an understandable feeling of disappointment in having to drop two points in a game that we had to play seven minutes of injury time with the last action happening in seven minutes and 51 seconds,” Martinez said. The surprise leaders once again were Leicester, the team that was battling relegation a year ago. And yet yesterday represented a missed opportunity for the team led by former Chelsea manager Claudio Ranieri. By drawing 1-1 with bottom-place Aston Villa after Shinji Okazaki’s opener was cancelled out by Rudy Gestede, Leicester are only on top by a point. Arsenal can reclaim top spot by just drawing at Stoke today. Between Leicester and Arsenal are ever-present Manchester City. Struggling teamslast_img read more

first_imgWith child abuse cases for 2018 topping recent figures and mounting to over 4900 cases, ChildLink – an activist group – is calling for more persons to come forward and become foster-parents to be able to help a child who may be in dire need of care and attention.At a recent forum where a report was presented on the topic by the agency, Samantha Alleyne spoke of the significance such a small gesture can have on a child’s life.“Our children are being abused everyday all around us and every one of us, all of us sitting here, we all have a role to play and I hope that this evening’s gathering will start something… if each one of us does something, each one of us listens to a child, each one of us report a case, each one of us open our homes, even temporarily, to an abused child, we are going to be making a difference,” she said.Alleyne, who conducted research for ChildLink to compile the report on ‘Lessons Learnt From Trauma Stories on Child Abuse’, reminded that the scars from child abuse are hard to heal, but the process becomes easier if children are surrounded by persons who are willing to help instead of remind them of their past.While sharing a survivor’s story, the agency explained that some children are severely battered after being abused, as many times some children are abused by numerous persons. In one instance, the researcher said she came across a child who was abused by five different persons.During the study, three types of children were used to collect data.“Children who experience sexual abuse, children who experience physical abuse and children who experience sexual abuse and their cases were persecuted,” Alleyne explained.Interviews were held with the children who experienced sexual and physical abuse, while the parents of young children who were sexually abused were interviewed because the children were at risk of being traumatised again if asked to recount the experiences.The interviews were conducted over a four-week period with 17 individuals, inclusive of nine children and eight adults.In December, the Child Care and Protection Agency (CCPA) revealed that two children are abused every hour in Guyana.According to CCPA, by the end of October 2018, the Agency had already responded to 4352 child abuse reports, which happens to be the highest number of reported cases ever for the period.In fact, a 25.4 per cent increase was recorded when compared with figures for the same period last year.Last September, CCPA Director Anne Greene told Guyana Times that being in formal care has a negative impact on children as she too called for persons to come forward and become foster parents.Back then, some 700 children were in formal care, however, in the Agency’s Year-in-Review, a total of 175 children were placed in foster care homes with 117 foster parents.last_img read more

Photo by Gavin O’Connor.Ballyshannon native Ray Duffy who currently resides in Tralee says ‘he can’t lose’ when Donegal clash with Kerry in the All-Ireland SFC final later this month.Ray has been living in Kerry for over twenty years after initially planning to stay for just six months.Ray told traleetoday.ie, “I only planned on staying in Kerry for six months, but I fell in love with the place, and it’s my home now. “I think Donegal and Kerry are very similar places, their both beautiful places, and the people are very friendly in both counties.Ray admitted that whatever the outcome in the All-Ireland SFC final on the 21st of September, he’ll be a happy man.“The way I look at it, I can’t lose. I’ll be happy for my sons and my wife if Kerry win the All-Ireland.“My oldest son Brad came with me to the 2012 final to see Donegal win. The deal was the next time Kerry were in the All-Ireland I’d go watch Kerry, so I’m as good as my word. Ray, who owns his own sandwich company Ray’s Loaded Lunches’, admitted he has enjoyed great banter with locals who have visited his café over the last few weeks.“Kerry fans have been very enjoyable over the last couple of weeks and there have been no hard feelings.“Once Donegal beat the Dubs everyone was delighted!“It’s just great that Donegal have been playing well these last few years because there was a long time where we were in doldrums.Ray said defeating the Dubs in the semi-final will be hard to top, because Donegal were given absolutely no chance. “I think as far as this year goes, nothing will beat knocking out the Dubs. We were such underdogs, we weren’t given a chance in both the minor and senior games, so to come out with two wins was fantastic.“Kerry getting to the final is a great boost to the economy here as well. Everyone is cheerful and looking forward to the final, but we could do with a bit more bunting around the place.Despite living in Kerry for over twenty years, Ray hasn’t changed his colours, when pressed for a prediction he confidently went for a three-point Donegal win.“If I had to make a prediction, I think Donegal will win by three, but a point will do! “Donegal are further down the line now. Jim McGuiness is slightly more experienced than Eamonn Fitzmaurice. Kerry are the team of the future, but Donegal are the team of the now.COUNTDOWN TO CROKER: DONEGAL MAN LIVING IN KERRY SAYS “HE CAN’T LOSE” was last modified: September 10th, 2014 by Mark ForkerShare 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:Countdown to CrokerdonegalFeaturesKerrynewsSportlast_img read more
