Pekerman dedicates Colombia win to defender

first_imgKAZAN, Russia (AP): Colombia coach Jose Pekerman dedicated his team’s victory over Poland to Carlos Sanchez, who was the target of a death threat after receiving a red card in an earlier match at the World Cup. The suspended midfielder was sent off in the team’s 2-1 loss to Japan in their opening game, and as a result, did not play in the 3-0 win over Poland yesterday. Colombian authorities are investigating the death threat, which was made on social media. The message appeared with an image of Sanchez and Colombia defender Andres Escobar, who was shot dead on the outskirts of Medellin on July 2, 1994, days after returning from the United States after competing at the World Cup. Escobar scored an own-goal against the host country at the tournament. “This victory is dedicated to Carlos Sanchez, because he has had a very hard time these last few days,” Pekerman said. “We achieved this victory and I wanted to share it with him. I’m expressing it personally but it’s something that the whole squad feels.” Sanchez could be back for Colombia’s final Group H game against Senegal on Thursday in Samara. “The player was deeply affected by this matter,” Pekerman said. “And I think that we understand that football is something. We play with a lot of responsibility and a lot of dedication and so forth, but these things shouldn’t be said lightly. And whether it’s confirmed or not, this is something that his very painful.” Senegal and Japan drew 2-2 earlier yesterday and lead the group with four points each. Colombia has three points and would advance with another victory.last_img read more

Don’t wait on an epidemic to take action – Ramsammy urges

first_imgZika virus… condemns Govt’s nonchalant response to threatZika is not just another mosquito-borne disease but Government surely is treating it as one, according to former Health Minister, Dr Leslie Ramsammy.Former Health Minister, Dr Leslie RamsammyIts nonchalant approach is evident in its lackluster educational awareness campaign, inability to utilise available resources, and slothfulness in the formulation of key policies to control the spread of the infection.Public Health Minister, Dr George Norton recently disclosed that there are 35 confirmed cases of the Zika virus in Guyana, a significant leap from the initial seven confirmed cases.Ramsammy indicated that this drastic increase in the number of affected persons can be attributed to Government’s poor response to the threat when it first hit the shores of Guyana.With the threat becoming greater, the former Health Minister is urging once again that Government snap into action before an epidemic breaks loose.“Every day, we are learning more and more frightening facts about Zika. This is not the time for Guyana to wait for an epidemic to hit us before we act. As a Minister of Health, I always responded as if there is a worst case scenario.While sometimes people were critical of the way I responded to threats, I believed that prevention is better than cure. The Ministry of Public Health is not serving the interest of the people of Guyana when it comes to Zika,” Ramsammy stated in a statement to the media.He went on to express utter disappointment in Government’s timid response.“It is not in keeping with the seriousness of the threat that Zika poses,” he underscored.According to Ramsammy, the Zika education and awareness programme from the Public Health Ministry is “at best anemic”. “It is virtually non-existent in Guyana. An announcement here and there and an occasional statement do not represent a robust education and awareness programme,” he commented.He noted that while the Pan-American Health Organisation/World Health Organisation (PAHO/WHO) has a good educational programme, the Public Health Ministry must get its act together if it intends on avoiding another health catastrophe in the country.Ramsammy lamented too that the Ministry has not developed a robust testing capacity for Zika. “I suspect that many cases of Zika are not diagnosed and reported,” he stated. Indeed, reports indicate that many people who exhibit symptoms of Zika are unaware if they are infected. Authorities had indicated that they simply use medication to treat the symptoms.Ramsammy said there is a lot of resource available from PAHO/WHO as well as CARPHA (the Caribbean Public Health Agency), and Government needs to make greater use through these agencies.He noted also that the off and on vector control response is a major disappointment. “We need an aggressive vector control programme to fight against Zika, malaria, chikungunya, engue and filariasis. The time has now come for a national bednet programme to protect pregnant women and children. I had introduced this programme, but evidence is that it is now at a standstill,” he observed.Moreover, he is urging the Ministry include Zika screening as part of the blood safety protocols for the National Blood Transfusion Service in Guyana.He also urged that Zika be recognised as a formal part of the Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs) programme in Guyana.There is now ample evidence that Zika is also a STI, transmitted from one person to the next through sexual intercourse, and there is further evidence that Zika can be transmitted via blood transfusion.Zika infection during pregnancy can cause serious birth defects, such as microcephaly, and is associated with other pregnancy problems.Microcephaly is a birth defect where a baby’s head is smaller than expected when compared to babies of the same sex and age. Babies with microcephaly often have smaller brains that might not have developed properly.Zika virus infection during pregnancy can also lead to other severe foetal brain defects and has been linked to problems in infants, including eye defects, hearing loss, and impaired growth. Scientists are studying the full range of other potential health problems that Zika virus infection during pregnancy may cause.Several countries that have experienced Zika outbreaks recently have reported increases in people who have Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS). GBS is an uncommon sickness of the nervous system in which a person’s own immune system damages the nerve cells, causing muscle weakness, and sometimes, paralysis. Additionally, increasing evidence is being accumulated showing an association between Zika and neurological problems in both men and women and children infected with Zika.last_img read more

Duo remanded for 884 grams of marijuana

first_imgTwo men were jointly charged and remanded to prison on Thursday morning when they appeared before the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts following a recent drug bust at Tucville, Georgetown.Dexter Mannings, of West Ruimveldt, Georgetown and Jason Norton, of Sophia, Greater Georgetown, both aged 40, were allegedly involved in the unlawful trafficking of 884 grams of cannabis on April 10, 2017.Their defence counsel told the Magistrate that his clients were occupants in the car where the marijuana was found. As such, he argued that the illicit drug could not be linked to them as they were mere passengers in the motor vehicle, which reportedly belonged to an associate of theirs, and who, for some reason, was not before the court.The court heard that Norton had a medical condition and was discharged from the hospital just a few days prior to his arrest. His Attorney, on these grounds, requested reasonable bail for him.However, bail was refused for both men. The men are expected to return to court on June 3, 2017 and they will remain incarcerated until then.last_img read more

DONEGAL INVESTMENT SCAM – THE GERMAN LINK & WHY VICTIMS NEED TO GO TO GARDAI

first_imgUPDATE: TOP financial invesigators inside this building in Germany may hold the key to bringing the crook behind the Donegal investment scam to justice, we can reveal today.For this is the headquarters of BaFin – Germany’s Federal Financial Supervisory Authority.The experts at BaFin helped to stop the conman making more money on the back of the more than 220 cheated investors. We understand the investigators are forensically trawling through hundreds of documents as they continue to liaise with fraud squad cops here and the Financial Services Authority in London.Sources there have told us that ‘there is no way’ any investor will be receiving refunds from the crook or those who represent them.In fact any monies seized from frozen accounts or assets would only be returned by the financial authorities in the countries affected.And another source told us: “We are concerned about the information being relayed by email and in hotel meetings and by some people who are handling accounts for others. “The power to resolve this no longer rests with the man behind this scheme. It appears to us at least that the main suspect in this financial crime continues to be able to persuade his representatives that the money is coming. I’m afraid this is a lie.“I would urge anyone affected to contact Gardai as a matter of urgency to register a complaint as this is the only way any ‘investor’ has a chance of recovering any funds.“I cannot be more clear than this – any promises of payments, next week, next month or next year from this extremely clever conman, or those who still believe him and represent him, are a complete load of rubbish. It is lies.”* Would the three people we spoke to over the weekend please contact us again through the normal channels.Do you know something we should investigate?

Donegal’s Mompreneurs are just the business!

first_imgThe term ‘working mother’ has taken on a whole new lease of life with the phenomenal rise in ‘Mompreneurs’ starting businesses from their kitchen tables and Donegal mammies have been leading the way with some fantastic enterprises springing up in recent times.Twin sisters Charlene McCarron and her sister Ciara Mhic Cathmhaoil decided upon Bibby Love, their Buncrana-based bib-making business when they couldn’t find a bib that suited the needs of their babies, but the primary school teachers admitted they really just started out with a dream and a sewing machine.Interestingly, in a county once famous for its textiles industry, clothing cottage-industries are proving to be very popular with working mums. Bibby Love owners Charlene McCarron and Ciara Mhic Cathmhaoil.Chiq Maternity (St. Johnston) and Pretty Baby Hair Accessories (Manorcunningham) are just two of many others now in the county and all three mompreneurs, along with many others, will attend this Sunday’s Bump and Beyond baby event in Letterkenny’s Mount Errigal Hotel.Maria Rushe, from Newtowncunningham, a teacher and mother of two – who organised that event when she discovered that mothers were struggling to find information on a whole range of parenting topics – said there really is a growing trend of mothers taking action when they spot a gap in the market.Amanda McClintock and Gillian Hamilton – Chiq Maternity.Two of those mothers are Amanda McClintock and Gillian Hamilton who started Chiq Maternity earlier this year after doing a Start Your Own Business Course with Donegal Local Enterprise Office.“Our children are all of the same ages and our youngest both started school together and we found we had some spare time and thought we could put it to good use. We decided to open an online shop for maternity wear as we had huge problems ourselves sourcing special occasion wear when we where both pregnant. We talked to a lot of other mothers who said exactly the same thing.” For now Amanda and Gillian are sourcing labels from Paris that are unique to Ireland for their online business, but the plans are to get some of their own designs and products on sale further down the line.That’s something that both Bibby Love and Pretty Baby Hair Accessories are already doing with Pretty Baby Hair Accessories now selling to over 50 countries.Leona Barron with her son Michael and her daughter Grace.Former economics and business studies teacher Leona Barron who started Pretty Baby Hair Accessories, explained that she had also created something to fill a need before realising it had business potential.“When Grace (who is now aged 6) was born, she had a beautiful full head of black hair and I was looking for clips to keep the hair from her eyes. The only ones I could find in stores were metal ones that were too harsh to put on a newborn’s head, so initially all I did was wrap the clips in some pretty ribbon to soften them against her head.People started asking me then where I got them. I started making some for friends and family members.” At that point it was very much a hobby, but it grew quickly and Leona left her full-time job to concentrate on her own business.Since October 2013 Leona has watched the orders increase hugely on her website www.prettybabyhair.co.uk. To date the business has shipped thousands of orders to customers in over 50 countries around the world. And with this extraordinary growth of Pretty Baby Hair Accessories, new plans are already in place for the business.Bibby Love operate from Derry as well as Buncrana, and while the business is only eight months old, their tale bears striking similarities to Leona’s.“The inspiration really came from our children and not being able to find products on the market to suit our needs. Charlene had begun taking a sewing class as a hobby to be able to make decorative things for around the house and to make pretty things for the girls. Ciara had just had her second baby and suggested that they look into making bibs that were more absorbent than any we had as she was struggling to keep the baby dry during feeding. It was then that we discovered the wonder fabric that is bamboo cotton and all the amazing properties it has for babies and mammies, both practical and beneficial. We began with the intention of making them only for ourselves and as gifts for friends, but after using them we decided that other mammies could benefit from our products too.”Having watched her business bloom, successful Mompreneur Leona says that she would encourage other mothers to seize the day and go for it.“I knew nothing about any of this, but I saw a niche in the market and after doing some research I went for it. I didn’t have a huge outlay but I did work hard and was determined to make it succeed if I could. There are thousands of women around the world who are at home developing their own business ideas in between changing nappies and doing the school run. I would encourage anyone with a good idea and something to sell, to seize the opportunity. Who knows where it might lead them!”Donegal’s Mompreneurs are just the business! was last modified: October 26th, 2016 by Rachel McLaughlinShare 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:bibby loveBump and BeyondBusinesschiqdonegal womenEnterprisepretty babylast_img read more

Liverpool to appeal length of Sadio Mane’s ban after red card against Man City

first_img Sadio Mane saw red for his challenge on the City stopper 1 Liverpool will appeal the length of Sadio Mane’s three-match ban for his dismissal against Manchester City.The 25-year-old was sent off by referee Jon Moss for raising his foot and clashing with City goalkeeper Ederson in Liverpool’s 5-0 defeat on Saturday. The Reds have the option to claim excessive punishment which could see Mane’s ban reduced by either one or two matches.Only a claim of wrongful dismissal would see Mane’s ban completely withdrawn but that is unlikely so the Senegal international still faces at least one game out. Mane collided with Ederson after 37 minutes with Manchester City 1-0 ahead.The Brazilian goalkeeper needed eight minutes of treatment before he was taken off on a stretcher and wearing an oxygen mask. However, he returned to the City bench in the second half. The hosts went on to win 5-0 and Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp said after the game the club was unlikely to appeal.He said: “So it never works? It would be another waste of time, like the game today. Not sure (if they will appeal).”“I think everyone knows he didn’t see the goalie.“There was not one second he looks on the goalie. He just wanted to get the ball as soon as possible. Hopefully the goalie is not seriously injured.“(Sadio) is very, very upset. We couldn’t keep him – he was shocked about the situation. I am sure also about the decision.”last_img read more

Joe Gomez ‘already one of England’s best defenders’, Jurgen Klopp claims

first_img Liverpool announced Gomez’s new contract on Monday 3 3 Premier League Team of the Season so far, including Liverpool and Leicester stars Berahino hits back at b******t Johnson criticism – ‘I was in a dark place at Stoke’ shining “His versatility is something that makes him even more valuable. He can play centre-half in almost any system you can think of, plus both full-back positions. It is no exaggeration to say he is one of England’s best defenders already, but when you keep in mind he is still very young the room for further improvement and development is just so exciting.“Off the pitch, I think I recently described him as ‘the nicest boy on the planet’ – and I mean it. He is so humble, so grounded, that it is a pleasure for me, my staff and the other players to work with him every day at Melwood. Every time Ally McCoist lost it on air in 2019, including funny XI reactions Where Ancelotti ranks with every Premier League boss for trophies won RANKED Forbes list reveals how much Mayweather, Ronaldo and Messi earned this decade Son ban confirmed as Tottenham fail with appeal to overturn red card Top nine Premier League free transfers of the decade ADVICE Ronaldo warned Lukaku how hard scoring goals in Serie A would be before Inter move REVEALED REVEALED center_img Oxlade-Chamberlain suffers another setback as Klopp confirms serious injury Klopp has shown real faith in the young defender, who joined Liverpool from Charlton in 2015 “It’s really nice news that makes a lot of sense to everyone involved,” Klopp told Liverpool’s official website after Gomez signed his new contract.“Joe’s development and progression has been outstanding in the past couple of seasons and I only see his trajectory heading in an upward direction.“He is so keen to learn and so keen to improve that I think his potential has no limit. Already this season we have seen him mature on the pitch and the credit for that goes 100 per cent to Joe himself for the attitude he has. 3 Which teams do the best on Boxing Day in the Premier League era? MONEY Latest Football News no dice REPLY huge blow Gomez has returned to the England set-up after missing the World Cup through injury BEST OF He’s been widely lauded as one of the best defenders in the Premier League this season, and has re-established himself in the England set-up having been forced to miss the summer’s World Cup through injury.Given he is still so young, Gomez is expected to enjoy a wonderful career at the highest level of the game, and it is no mean feat for such a young player to already be a certain starter for a side challenging for the top flight title.But it is no surprise Gomez has made his mark at Liverpool and on the international stage as, according to his club manager, he is already one of the best centre-backs England can call upon. Liverpool star Joe Gomez is ‘one of England’s best defenders already’, according to the Anfield club’s manager Jurgen Klopp.Gomez, 21, signed a new long-term contract with the Reds on Monday, with the deal expected to take him through until the end of the 2023/24 season. “I think Liverpool is the perfect home for him now. We benefit from each other – player and club. We are the perfect environment for him to achieve his full potential and he makes our team and squad stronger. I love how much he looks to learn from every person in our dressing room. He soaks up the experience, while at the same time finding his own path.“I’m really looking forward to seeing him take his career to the next level. Of course at the moment he has this injury, but he has already made a big contribution to this season and I have zero doubt when he returns he’ll not skip a beat from the high level he was at.”last_img read more

Robert Snodgrass set to return for Scotland after 15 months out

first_img“There have been some young players who have caught the eye this season and who have certainly put themselves in contention,” he said. “I will speak to the Performance Director, Brian McClair, before we confirm anything because I’m aware Ricky [Sbragia] and Scot [Gemmill] have important Under-21s qualifiers and an Under-19 Elite Round at the same time.“There may be one or two more surprises but that depends on how players perform over the next week to 10 days, when we will finalise the squads.”However, the manager expressed regret that he will not be able to call on the services of James McArthur. The Crystal Palace midfielder has an ankle ligament injury but with surgery not needed he may return to first team football before the end of the season.“The flip-side is that we will not have James McArthur, who has had a really terrific season for Palace before his injury,” Strachan said. “He has really come of age this season as a Premier League player and, like Snoddy, I really cannot ask for more from James than he gives every time he joins up for international duty.” “Even during the hardest parts of his recovery he always arrived with a smile on his face and the rewards he is getting now back on the pitch are thoroughly deserved for what he’s had to contend with through injury.“The most important thing is not to rush him – it’s far more important he is back to 100% for his club and ready for the start of the World Cup Qualifiers – but I know how enthusiastic he is and he makes a difference to our squad.“I will keep in touch with Steve Bruce up until we announce the squad but if he thinks he is ready, and Robert does, too, then we will look forward to having him back.”The friendly double-header gives Strachan the opportunity to experiment ahead of the World Cup qualifiers and in naming two squads he will run the rule over some international hopefuls. He said that there was still time for some youngsters to catch the eye. Scotland manager Gordon Strachan has said that he is keen to see Robert Snodgrass return for Scotland in next month’s international friendlies.Hull midfielder Snodgrass has returned to playing after 15 months on the sidelines with a serious knee injury and was man of the match in his side’s draw with Sheffield Wednesday last week.Strachan is preparing to select two largely different squads for matches against Czech Republic and Denmark in March and has suggested that Snodgrass will play a part, if his club are happy.“I am absolutely delighted to see Snoddy back playing and making an impact for Hull,” the national team manager told the Scottish FA official website..”We have kept in touch with him all the way through his rehabilitation and he has been around the squads.last_img read more
