KSAFA to sell office

first_imgThe Kingston and St Andrew Football Association (KSAFA) is to sell the building that houses its headquarters at 40 Old Hope Road as the organisation embarks on finding a more fitting home.The administration has also already identified two prospective properties that are deemed to be more suitable and is in the process of making an acquisition.The development was revealed by KSAFA President Ambassador Stewart Stephenson at the launch of the 2016 David Hunt Management Seminar at the headquarters of sponsor Mayberry Investments Limited on Oxford Road in Kingston recently.The seminar is set for today at the Melbourne Cricket Club.The existing headquarters was bought by KSAFA in 2011 by the then administration led by President Rudolph Speid. In 2012, the property was said to be valued at $28 million. But according to Ambassador Stephenson, the property does not fit with the kind of image that KSAFA would want to have as a home.”As KSAFA continues to build and provide professional services for our association and our clubs we have had to look at the facilities that we occupy, and I am happy to announce that just yesterday (Wednesday) we signed a contract to sell our premises at 40 Old Hope Road, which was not appropriate in our judgement for building the kind of image and the kind of organisation that we want,” Stephenson said.Ambassador Stephenson said the contract that was signed Wednesday will conclude in four months and the association has already received a deposit on the sale.”We met with our clubs and they voted without objection for the sale of the building on Friday, the 15th of January for us to find a more appropriate location that reflects the needs of KSAFA with adequate parking etc. There is no reason why KSAFA should not look as good as Mayberry or any other corporate enterprise.”last_img read more

Inquirer 7 top UAAP 81 women’s volleyball players: Weeks 1 and 2

first_imgGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup title She’s tied with Alessandrini and UP’s Isa Molde at the fourth spot of the Best Scorers ladder, and she’s got to this level through sheer consistency and versatility.Laure’s lowest production in her first three games in the collegiate level is 12 points and that was in UST’s loss to Ateneo while her other games saw her put up 18 and 17 points.She’s also seventh in the Best Blockers category with an average of 0.62 kill blocks per set and fourth in the Best Spikers table with a success rate of 33.94 percent.6. Jolina Dela Cruz (De La Salle University, opposite hitter)Jolina dela Cruz. Photo by Tristan Tamayo/INQUIRER.netFilling in the shoes of Kianna Dy is no small feat for a new Lady Spiker but rookie Jolina Dela Cruz has shown the moxie needed to make a name for herself in the illustrious De La Salle program.Dy was a one-time Finals MVP and owner of three titles with her role as La Salle’s opposite hitter for five years looming over anyone who would eventually take her place but Dela Cruz, well for the first two games, has shown she’s ready.Dela Cruz was steady for the Lady Spikers scoring a total of 21 points in her first two games, 11 of which came in their 25-14, 25-17, 16-25, 25-19 win over Ateneo in the opening weekend.With 17,166 fans watching her at Mall of Asia Arena, Dela Cruz displayed utter calm in an atmosphere that would easily rattle and break anyone let alone a rookie.7.

Cherry Rondina (University of Santo Tomas, outside spiker)Cherry Rondina. Photo by Tristan Tamayo/INQUIRER.netCherry Rondina doesn’t have to do everything for UST this time, but the “Cherry Bomb” remains explosive as ever.UST’s captain is the second-leading scorer behind Tolentino with 54 points and has been consistent throughout the first three games for the Golden Tigresses.Rondina scored 17 points in the two UST wins before tallying 20 in a losing effort against Ateneo as she tried to cover up for some offensive lapses by her team.Needless to say, Rondina’s production is still in the upper echelon of the league despite having major support from rising stars Milena Alessandrini and Eya Laure.3. Diana Carlos (University of the Philippines, outside spiker)Diana Carlos. Photo by Tristan Tamayo/INQUIRER.netShe’s the skipper of University of the Philippines and she’s showing why everything goes through her.Diana Carlos is the emotional leader of the Lady Maroons and she’s displayed her offensive abilities by taking the third spot in the Best Scorers table with a total of 52 points.Interestingly, Carlos is similar to Rondina in the sense that she’s produced the most points in a loss. Carlos had 20 points in UP’s loss to UST, 21-25, 25-22, 25-16, 25-20, while scoring 15 and 17 points in the Lady Maroons’ two victories.4. Milena Alessandrini (University of Santo Tomas, outside spiker)Milena Alessandrini. Photo by Tristan Tamayo/INQUIRER.netIt’s already mentioned that Rondina got some help in Season 81, and the first of whom was reigning Rookie of the Year Milena Alessandrini.The second-year hitter already showed promise back in Season 80 but she missed a chunk of the tournament due to injury, but she’s now in full health to help the Golden Tigresses.Alessandrini is tied with another Golden Tigress in the fourth spot of the Best Scorers table but she got the higher nod in this list due to her brilliant turnaround from being pedestrian against Ateneo to being a speedster UST’s win against UP.After scoring just 10 points in UST’s loss to Ateneo, Alessandrini erupted for 22 points in the Golden Tigresses’ victory against the Lady Maroons.5. Eya Laure (University of Santo Tomas, opposite hitter)Eya Laure. Photo by Tristan Tamayo/INQUIRER.netIt’s safe to say that Eya Laure has lived up to the hype.Tabbed as a frontrunner for the Rookie of the Year plum even before the start of the tournament, Laure has shown that she can dance with the big girls.Laure was a winner of multiple awards in high school including the MVP and the Rookie of the Year and she’s so far translated that talent into the collegiate game.

Attacker who ingested poison in stable condition

first_imgCorentyne murderThe 28-year-old Corentyne, Berbice man who ingested a poisonous substance after stabbing his ex-wife to death is now in stable condition at the Port Mourant Hospital.Tovannie Simmons and Imran Lyte in happier timesImran Lyte, of Limlair Village, Corentye, Region Six (East Berbice-Corentyne), stabbed the woman, Tovannie Simmons, some 10 times about her body following an argument at her Second Street, Limlair Village home.He then fled the scene of the crime and was later rushed to the Hospital by relatives after ingesting the substance. Lyte remains under Police guard at the Port Mourant Hospital.It was previously reported by Guyana Times that Lyte and his sister went to Simmons’ home to discuss a matter involving her brother, which allegedly occurred last Sunday when a heated argument ensued and the suspect whipped out a knife and attacked his ex-wife.The dead woman’s mother, Jacklyn Henry, related that Simmons was visited by her ex-husband and his sister and they were sitting at the table having a discussion when he started stabbing the mother of four.“He grab she and start jooking she and she holla and jump on me; I went in the chair sitting down and I try fuh block he and he fire the knife at me and she run out on the landing,” Simmons’ mother said.Henry further explained that Lyte went on to the veranda where a relative tried to restrain him, but he was able to free himself and pursued Simmons, continuing to stab her.On Saturday last, Simmons had gone to collect her children from another part of the village and on her journey, she was confronted by Lyte, who accused her of allowing her friends to taunt his new lover. Lyte reportedly hit Simmons, and in retaliation, one of her sisters reportedly kicked him causing him to fall into a nearby trench. Her brother then intervened, and he was stabbed by Lyte. A report was made to the Police.last_img read more

Food hand-out demand shoots up 12 percent across U.S.

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORERose Parade grand marshal Rita Moreno talks New Year’s Day outfit and ‘West Side Story’ remake On average, 18 percent of the requests for emergency food and 14 percent of the requests for emergency shelter are estimated to have gone unmet during the past year. Eighty-seven percent of cities said the length of time that people were homeless, an average of seven months, increased during the past year. Lack of affordable housing topped the list of causes of homelessness. Low-paying jobs, mental illness, substance abuse and other things also were factors. Fifty-four percent of the people asking for emergency food were families, children and their parents. Forty percent of the adults requesting food were employed. Officials said evacuees from hurricanes Katrina and Rita have not caused a significant strain on resources, but warned that the impact might be felt next year. SAN FRANCISCO – Americans nationwide needed more emergency food and shelter last year than a year earlier, according to the results of a 24-city survey released Monday by the U.S. Conference of Mayors. Overall, requests for food assistance grew by 12 percent during the past year with 76 percent of the cities surveyed reporting an increase. Appeals for shelter assistance increased by 6 percent with 71 percent of cities showing an increase, according to the annual Hunger and Homelessness Survey. “The statistics continue to get worse and worse in spite of our Herculean efforts,” said San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom, who, along with Mayor Paul Pate of Cedar Rapids, Iowa, co-chairs the conference’s Task Force on Hunger and Homelessness. Among the survey’s findings: The data analyzed were collected during November and December 2005 for the period of Nov. 1, 2004, to Oct. 31, 2005, from city officials, community-based providers and government agencies. It was supplemented by population, poverty and unemployment figures from the U.S. Census Bureau and the Bureau of Labor Statistics. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Chimps Produce Movie

first_imgThe BBC is going to air a movie made by chimpanzees.  (Note: This is not a Planet of the Apes remake.)  A primatologist working on her PhD gave some chimps at the Edinburgh zoo a “Chimpcam,” a camcorder in a “chimp-proof” box, to see what they would come up with.  “Despite the fact that the chimps had never taken part in a research project before, they soon displayed an interest in film-making,” the article said.    The chimps did not seem particularly interested in the screenplay, though.  “The apes are unlikely to have actively tried to film any particular subject, or understand that by carrying Chimpcam around, they were making a film,” the news report ended.  “However, the result, as well as providing new information on how chimps like to see the world, may yet go down in television history.”  A portion of the footage, showing a chimp apparently licking the lens, accompanies the article.  They did not say what its rating will be. If it turns out anything like the Monkey Shakespeare experiment (05/12/2003), it should be rated PG, for primate gross.  They probably learned from the demolished typewriters that they had to chimp-proof the Chimpcam to avoid excrement from damaging the electronics.  If anything suggestive of “understanding” comes out on the tape, scientific objectivity would look into the possibility of coaching by the zookeepers, and the amount of judicious editing done by intelligent human engineers.    This attempt could backfire into a series of legal challenges.  Other animals are ostensibly more intelligent than chimpanzees (05/26/2009).  They may claim that they were overlooked in the hiring.  Flipper, Heckel and Jeckel should call their agents and demand enforcement of equal employment opportunity laws.(Visited 7 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

2010: South Africa’s great leap forward

first_img8 June 2010An extraordinary thing happened recently in the famous chamber of London’s cavernous Royal Albert Hall.With 21 days to go before South Africa’s hosting of the 2010 Fifa World Cup, eight South African stand-up comedians representing a kaleidoscope of the country’s racial diversity kept an overwhelmingly South African audience of more than 3 000 doubled up with laughter for three side-splitting hours.The show, called Bafunny Bafunny – a word-play on the nickname of SA’s national soccer team, Bafana Bafana (the boys) – was an irreverent attempt to build enthusiasm for the world’s largest sporting event among South Africa’s largest expatriate community – sometimes referred to as the tenth province of South Africa.Promoting social cohesionIt was catharsis of the kind that has been kindled – and could be fast-forwarded – by the national convergence and unity of purpose thrust on South Africans by hosting the world’s largest and most diverse sporting event.“The hosting of the 2010 World Cup will change the way the world sees South Africa and the African continent forever,” says President Jacob Zuma, who kicked a mean soccer ball himself while serving time for resistance to apartheid on South Africa’s notorious, Alcatraz-like Robben Island prison.Just as the 2006 World Cup had Germans smiling, drinking beer and waving the national flag en masse for the first time in 60 years, so the first African World Cup in South Africa could have an equally dramatic effect on promoting social cohesion in a country with a lingering legacy of deep racial inequality.Inside the Royal Albert Hall, there were two gigantic South African flags on either side of the massive organ and nothing to remind one that you were sitting in the heart of London’s prime venue.The crowd, a tiny fraction of the estimated 600 000 South Africans in the UK, was mobilised by word-of-mouth and without a single advertisement in mainstream media.Trevor Noah, Nick Rabinowitz, Loyiso Gola, Mark Lottering, John Vlismas, Kagiso Ledega, Mark Banks and Barry Hilton took the gloves off with slick, witty and hugely varied performances.Their repartee – peppered with four-letter words – slaughtered a series of favourite targets: Fifa, the fiery ANC youth leader Julius Malema, the police shoot-first policy, violent crime, and the biggest and most sensitive no-go area of all: race.The targeting of Malema was a moment of truth for the young democracy.After a protracted and heated public debate in April and May, the top disciplinary committee of the ruling African National Congress sanctioned Malema, inter alia, for singing an old liberation song which calls on its cadres to “kill a Boer” after it had been ruled to constitute hate speech by the courts.Boer was the label used to define conservative Afrikaans-speaking South Africans as the enemy during the apartheid era. The ANC has lodged an appeal against the ruling.At the height of the row, a half-forgotten extreme right-wing Boer leader, Eugene Terreblanche (whose name means “white earth” in the language of his French ancestors), was murdered by two black farm workers. The stark reality of the here and now confronted the young democracy.How do you justify a song coveted by one group of South Africans when it calls for the killing of members of another? Do you laugh or cry?‘It’s here. Can you feel it?’At the Royal Albert Hall on 20th May, the only tears to be found were those generated by excessive laughter.For three hours, a diverse audience of South Africans laughed at themselves, at each other and with each other at things that many could not talk about outside the comfort zone of their racial or cultural groups even a few years ago.In recent months, South Africans of all races have been donning Bafana shirts on Fridays, flying the national flag from their car windows, wrapping their rear-view mirrors in socks sporting the national flag, and chanting slogans about Africa’s time has come and: “It’s here. Can you feel it?”There is a rare inclusive outpouring of patriotic fervour.As the row about the noisy but uniquely African trumpet – known as a vuvuzela (Zulu for noise) – is debated on breakfast television shows at home and abroad, South Africans are undergoing a seismic shift in terms of social cohesion and identity which is set to be galvanised by hosting the 2010 World Cup.White South Africans, in the past wedded to rugby while soccer was and remains an overwhelmingly black sport, are starting to take ownership of the national team and willing it to victory despite its low international ranking.As the finishing touches are given to five awesome new stadiums, three transformed airports and a range of new transport and access routes, the level of national excitement is palpable.Estimates of foreign arrivals have come down significantly since the build-up began, which will mean that far more South Africans will get a seat at the stadiums.And there is a healthy ongoing debate about whether the large numbers of poor and unemployed South Africans will benefit from the expenditure of some US$5-billion on stadiums and related infrastructure.The physical benefits for the country’s economic infrastructure are there for all to see.But the most enduring benefactor of the World Cup will be the national psyche and the quest for a common national identity to transcend a deeply divided past.As former President Thabo Mbeki said when he spoke at the handing over ceremony in Berlin in 2006, the German World Cup succeeded in restoring some of Germany’s self-respect after its legacy of national socialism.“We are confident that the 2010 soccer World Cup will do the same to consolidate our self-respect and dignity gained when we attained our freedom and democracy in 1994 and, in a unique way, also help our own nation and the continent of Africa,” Mbeki said.Legacy and reconciliationBafana Captain Aaron Mokoena, even before the World Cup began, has taken the lead in ensuring that the legacy of the 2010 World Cup will benefit future generations of soccer players.A year ago he launched the Aaron Mokoena Foundation, which will ensure that those who were denied an opportunity in the past will benefit from the coaching and mentoring services the Foundation will provide; initially in the sprawling townships south of Johannesburg, including his home town of Boipatong in Sedibeng.“The future of the country is in the hands of the youth,” said Mokoena. “I want to make a contribution to ensure that they have the opportunity to reach for the stars.”An initiative such as John Perlman’s Dreamfields project is ensuring that thousands of would-be soccer players are getting access to kit and playing fields, often in the most remote rural reaches of the country.Local Organising committing CEO, Danny Jordaan, who has become synonymous with the World Cup, sees the staging of the event as a culmination of the anti-apartheid struggle which so effectively used sport to defeat apartheid.In 1995, former President Nelson Mandela used the rugby World Cup as a means of galvanising conservative white support for the country’s first black majority government. The story has been movingly told in the book Invictus by John Carlin and the film of the same name starring Morgan Freeman and Matt Damon.Mandela was also instrumental in securing the Fifa World Cup for South Africa.“Reconciliation is an important aim of the World Cup.” Jordaan told the Independent on Sunday. “We want to make this country better and more united and I think we will achieve that.”“It will chart a new course in our country’s history,” he said.This article was first published in the Christian Science Monitor (online) and republished on ReConnect Africa.John Battersby is a former southern Africa correspondent of the Christian Science Monitor and a former editor of the Sunday Independent in Johannesburg. He is co-author of Nelson Mandela: A Life in Photographs published by Sterling in the United States in January 2010. Battersby is a trustee of the Aaron Mokoena Foundation.last_img read more
