first_img The dismissal also brought Guyana back into the game with the Leon Johnson-captained unit capturing the remaining six wickets for 74 runs. Others to get starts but failing to carry on were Jermaine Blackwood, 29, and Devon Thomas, 26. Joseph, bowling good lines and lengths, was the pick of the Jaguars bowlers with a career-best figures of seven for 53 off 15.3 overs was the pick of the Jaguars bowlers, while there were two wickets for his new-ball partner, Romario Joseph. “I think they are in a good position but I don’t think they have gone anywhere to far as if you add two or three wickets to the total it’s a different look,” highlighted Walton. “It is therefore for us to come tomorrow and put the ball in the right areas and get a hold of the game.” SCOREBOARD SCORPIONS 1st Innings J Campbell c Johnson b Joseph 9 +C Walton c Johnson b Motie 101 J Blackwood c Permaul b Shepherd 29 A McCarthy c wkp Bramble b Joseph 19 B King c Shepherd b Joseph 30 D Thomas c wkp Bramble b Joseph 26 D Green c wkp Bramble b Shepherd 7 D Jacobs c Johnson b Joseph 15 *N Miller c Reifer b Joseph 5 J Taylor not out 1 M Mindley lbw b Joseph 0 Extras (lb5, w4, nb4) 13 TOTAL (all out, 70.3 overs) 255 Fall of wickets: 1-15, 2-75, 3-103, 4-181, 5-212, 6-222, 7-245, 8-254, 9-255, 10-255.

Revival In-form wicketkeeper-batsman Chadwick Walton continued his good batting exploits with a stroke-filled century on yesterday’s first day of the sixth round WICB Four-day Tournament clash between leaders Jamaica Scorpions and second-place Guyana Jaguars at Sabina Park. One of the outstanding performers for Jamaica during the just-concluded WICB Regional Super50 tournament,Walton compiled a topscore of 101 as Jamaica, asked to bat first, posted a competitive 255 in their first innings. Guyana, who are eyeing a third straight hold on the crown with five rounds of matches to go, then closed the day in a comfortable position at 69 without loss. Recent West Indies Under-19 World Cup winning captain, Shimron Hetmyer with a well-played 51, and Tagnarine Chanderpaul, 14, are the not out batsmen, who are set to resume today when play gets underway at 10am. “I am a bit disappointed for not going on and making a bigger century, but nevertheless I will take it,” said Walton, who was notching his second first-class ton. “I would rate it as one of my better first-class innings as it was a challenging wicket and one had to buckle down and concentrate as long as possible.” Walton, who scored a century in the semi-finals of the Super50, and followed up with another for the WICB President’s XI against touring England, was best supported by young batsman Brandon King, who scored 30. The pair also shared the highest partnership of the innings, 78 for the fourth wicket, before King was dismissed caught off the bowling of impressive fast bowler, Keon Joseph, with the score on 181.last_img read more

first_img(L-R) House Speaker J. Emmanuel Nuquay, Senate Pro Temp Armah Z. Jallah and President of the Senate, Joseph N. BoakaiAlthough it has a huge to-do list, the Legislature – the House of Representatives and the Senate – has less than a week of working time left until its end.The 53rd Legislature, which started in January 2012, will end on January 8, 2018. The House’s upcoming recess this election year is the final break for lawmakers who will not be reelected. The legislative break is in the House’s rules and regulations, with reliance on Article 38 of the Constitution, which states: “Each House shall adopt its own rules of procedure, enforce order… All rules adopted by the Legislature shall conform to the requirements of due process of law laid down in this Constitution.”This week, which is the final business week for the August bodies, both Houses are under pressure to offload several legislation, known as landmark bills, including the Lands Right Act (LRA), Bill of Referendum and the Presidential Transition. The other bills include the Whistleblower and Witness Protection, the New Elections Law, the Amendment and Restatement of the Public Management Act (to manage and control public resources), and the Domestic Violence Act among others. Additionally, President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf may come under increased pressure to win major legislative victories before the Legislature’s farewell break, which will formally be on Thursday, August 31.Speculation in the corridors of the Legislature says both Houses are considering a possible extension for at least three weeks as a result of a request from President Sirleaf. It has not been established whether it would be formal.Article 32(b) of the Constitution states “The President shall, on his own initiative or upon receipt of a certificate signed by at least one-fourth of the total membership of each House, and by proclamation, extend a regular session of the Legislature beyond the date for adjournment or call a special extraordinary session of that body to discuss or act upon matters of national emergency and concern. When the extension or call is at the request of the Legislature, the proclamation shall be issued not later than forty-eight hours after receipt of the certificate by the President.”The Daily Observer has reliably learned that both Houses also face an increasing number of legislative distractions because of the elections campaign, especially in the House of Representatives, where most committee chairs and co-chairs are busy with district projects and campaign activities for their hopeful re-election. There is a big divide among members of some committees over certain provisions in several acts, resulting in the lack of the required signatures to recommend to plenary for passage.Meanwhile, with House Speaker J. Emmanuel Nuquay being vice standard bearer on the ticket of the ruling Unity Party (UP) and Vice President Joseph N. Boakai, President of the Senate and UP standard bearer, there are signs that there would either be extra sessions besides the regular Tuesday and Thursday sessions, or an official extension.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_imgThe spotty nature of recent shower activity this summer in the Peace Region has resulted in a wide variety of both forage and grain crop conditions.While last week’s B.C. Day rain storms left some Environment Canada weather stations with August 3rd records, the official total of 25 millimetres at the local airport station was well off the 1976 record of 37.3, and other areas got much less than that.Crops on the Alberta side of the border in the Grande Prairie area have been described by a Northern Lights County councillor as, “A disaster, very stressed, non-existent.”- Advertisement -He estimates hay yields are one quarter to one half of normal, and says with grain crops not faring much better consideration is being given to declaring the county an agricultural disaster area.That would make it the fourth county north and west of Edmonton to do so, but the President of the B.C. Cattlemen’s Association says it is not uniformly dry across the region.The livestock producer victims this year could be forced into unwanted herd reductions, because unlike in previous dry years, there’s little emergency feed to be had across the border.Advertisement Some ranchers there are fighting a two front war, one against the drought conditions, and the other against grasshoppers.last_img read more

first_img0Shares0000The Champions League trophy stands on display during the group stage draw ceremony © AFP/File / Valery HACHELjubljana, Slovenia, Sep 24 – The 2021 UEFA Champions League final will be played in Saint Petersburg, European football’s governing body announced on Tuesday.The venues for the next three finals were revealed at UEFA’s Executive Committee meeting in the Slovenian capital Ljubljana, with Munich being awarded the 2022 showpiece and the 2023 final being given to Wembley. In awarding the venues for the next three years, UEFA have had to take into account not just the likely demand for match tickets but also the importance of hotel rooms and transport infrastructure.That means there are a limited number of cities around Europe capable of successfully staging a match of such magnitude.“The chosen venues have proper mobility, hotels and everything else. Where we have a problem, and probably will have a problem anywhere, is that sometimes hotels take advantage of the fact the Champions League final is in a certain city,” admitted UEFA president Aleksandar Ceferin.“I am sure that if you check those three cities in half an hour you will see that hotel prices have already started to rise.“This is a problem but it is hard for us to influence. That is why we want to go to such big cities with so many hotels that in the end you can choose.”“Those venues are big cities, interesting cities, accessible for the fans and with very nice stadiums,” he added, although he said he “cannot do any promises for now” in terms of increasing ticket allocations for supporters.– Return to Russia –This season’s final will be played in Istanbul, before hosting is given to the 68,000-capacity Gazprom Arena in Saint Petersburg.The venue, complete with a retractable roof, was built ahead of the 2018 World Cup held in Russia. It hosted seven matches at that tournament, including France’s semi-final win over Belgium and will also host four games at Euro 2020.It will be the second Champions League final to be played in Russia after Manchester United beat Chelsea in Moscow to win the trophy in 2008.The 70,000-seat Allianz Arena in Munich is also a host venue for Euro 2020 and staged the 2012 Champions League final when Bayern Munich lost on penalties to Chelsea.The 2023 final will be the eighth to be held at Wembley, with the iconic 90,000-seat London venue also hosting the semi-finals and final of next year’s European Championship.Meanwhile, European football’s governing body also revealed that the 2021 Europa League final will be played in Seville, at Sevilla’s Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan stadium.The Spanish city was chosen ahead of Georgian capital Tbilisi as the game returns to western Europe — after being staged in Baku last season, next year’s final will go to the Polish city of Gdansk.The 2021 UEFA Super Cup match — between the winners of the Champions League and Europa League — will be played in Belfast.UEFA said VAR, which made its Champions League debut in the last 16 last season, will be introduced to the Europa League for the knockout rounds this term.A third European club competition that is set to start in 2021 will be known as the UEFA Europa Conference League.0Shares0000(Visited 12 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more
