We’re not completing our sets of six, our ball control is poor and so is our defence.“The Gurias capitalized on this and beat this. They were the better side yesterday afternoon. “This week at training will be about getting back to the basics and making sure we do the simple things right,” said Kereme.He added that there will definitely be changes made for this Sunday’s round 4 clash against the TNA Simbu Lions at home in Mendi.The Muruks have lost two games this season and are sitting second last on the ladder with 1 competition point.This came from a 16-16 draw with the Wamp Nga Mt.Hagen Eagles in round two.last_img

first_img…commemorative stamp launchedA commemorative stamp was on Friday launched at the Foreign Affairs Ministry’s South Road, Georgetown office as Guyana celebrated 50 years of bilateral relations with Brazil. In attendance at the event were subject Minister Carl Greenidge, Telecommunications Minister Catherine Hughes, Deputy Head of Mission of the Brazilian Embassy Paulo Silos, and several others.The stamp will also be launched in Brazil on October 26, although it is currently available in two denominations at the cost of some $200 and $80 locally.Greenidge reminded that Guyana established formal relations with the neighbouring country on August 26, 1986, and the two countries have since closely collaborated in the areas of education, health and technical cooperation, among other areas.Greenidge said, “Over the subsequent 50 years (since establishment of relations), our two countries have solidified relations through close collaboration… These matters are being pursued, (and) continue to be pursued under the variety of mechanisms that were established over the years”.He added that, in recent years, the two countries have intensified their bilateral relations through a series of “high level encounters”.The Deputy Head of Mission of the Brazilian Embassy, Paulo Silos, endorsed Minister Greenidge’s statement and added that the stamp has a powerful message attached, as it is available to all.“A stamp is not just a tiny stamp or a strip of paper. We should not be fooled by small size, as it portrays its true importance and significance. The stamp, in many ways, is better than the visible monument, because a monument is erected in one place, a stamp however has its own powerful impact, as it is not restricted spatially,” he said.Telecommunications Minister Catherine Hughes told the gathering that the stamp is a testimony of the good relations existing between the two countries. “Today’s official launching of the commemorative stamp is one more symbol of the good, strong, neighbourly relations between the Federative Republic of Brazil and the Cooperative Republic of Guyana,” she noted.This stamp happens to be third one produced in recent years to celebrate bilateral relations with Brazil. The first one was launched in 2003 to observe the countries’ 35 years of partnership; the second was produced in 2009 to mark the official commissioning of the Takutu Bridge, which links Guyana and Brazil.Also released on Friday was a 15-minute documentary on the two countries, which captures various aspects of the two nations.In observance of the 50-year-long relationship, a safari will be heading to Brazil next month. This happens to be the first time that the South Rupununi Safari, organised by Rainforest Tours, will be leaving the country.last_img read more

first_imgThe controversy surrounding the Donegal team’s brief appearance on RTE’s Late Late Show has been reignited by one of Ireland’s top broadcasters.Well-known and hugely respected former UTV sports commentator Adrian Logan has branded the interview a disgrace.Logan, affectionately known as Logie, tweeted that RTE should forget about interviewing All-Ireland champions if this was the best they could do. He tweeted “Ryan Tubridy’s so-called interview with Donegal was a disgrace. If that’s the best he and RTE can do then forget about it.”Many of Donegal’s army of fans are outraged after their team’s very brief appearance on RTE’s Late Late Show.The team made the 300 mile round-trip on Friday for the show but were only given a little more than four minutes of television time by host Ryan Tubridy.The RTE appearance came after the team had completed a marathon four day bus journey across Donegal visiting most of its towns and village with the Sam Maguire Cup. Captain Michael Murphy and manager Jim McGuinness were interviewed on the floor of the RTE studio with the entire team behind them.However this compares to a full fourteen minute sit-down interview with last year’s champions Dublin.Fans have jammed social media sites complaining about the Donegal side’s treatment.While none of the Donegal team or management have expressed an opinion on the rapid appearance, many of their fans are annoyed.  TOP BROADCASTER BRANDS DONEGAL’S INTERVIEW ON LATE LATE A “DISGRACE” was last modified: September 30th, 2012 by StephenShare 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:Adrian LogandonegalLate Late ShowRTERyan TubridyUTVlast_img read more

first_imgBREAKING NATIONAL NEWS: Garda Commissioner Martin Callinan has resigned.It follows his use of the word ‘disgusting’ to describe the actions of two Garda whistleblowers.The move is expected to put more pressure on Justice Minister Alan Shatter. Sinn Féin Justice Spokesperson Pádraig Mac Lochlainn, responding to the resignation of the Garda Commissioner this morning, has said Martin Callinan has made the right decision.He said: “From the moment that the allegations from the two Garda Whistleblowers, Maurice McCabe and John Wilson, emerged about widespread malpractice of the penalty points issue the Garda Commissioner sought to downplay and even dismiss the allegations.“Worse, he repeatedly sought to discredit the credibility of the two whistleblowers which culminated in the outrageous ‘disgusting’ comment at the Public Accounts Committee.“The findings of the Comptroller and Auditor General and more recently the Garda Inspectorate vindicated the core allegations of the whistleblowers and posed serious questions for the management of An Garda Síochána by Commissioner Callinan. “Furthermore the provocative language he used following the allegations that the Garda Síochána Ombudsman Commission offices had been bugged once again demonstrated poor leadership.“However, what all of these episodes in recent years have clearly demonstrated is a need for an Independent Policing Authority, accountable to an Independent Policing Board, similar to what is in place in the North of Ireland and increased powers given to the Garda Síochána Ombudsman Commission.“My party’s focus will be on these urgent and necessary changes moving forward.” GARDA COMMISSIONER RESIGNS – DONEGAL TD WELCOMES MOVE was last modified: March 25th, 2014 by John2Share 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:Martin CallinanResignedlast_img read more
