And Hong Kong is very similar with (Marcus) Elliott and (Tyler) Lamb, and of course, they got Christian (Standhardinger) over there, too,” he said.Alab went 0-2 for against Hong Kong in the elimination round, but a lot has changed since with the Philippines now boasting different World Imports in Renaldo Balkman and Justin Brownlee, who led the team to the No  3 seed.That fact isn’t lost on Alapag, and he’s more than excited to test Hong Kong on a bigger stage.“We’re much, much different team compared to we were in the first half of the season. At the same time, they’re still the defending champs and they have home court advantage, so it’s going to be important for us to shift our focus as we head home and go to Hong Kong on Wednesday,” he said.ADVERTISEMENT Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

Brazil “improved in the second half after Neymar made the difference.”Liverpool’s Roberto Firmino scored Brazil’s second goal in the 90th.

I respect Tite’s opinion (in starting with Jesus) 100 percent,” Firmino said.The striker also thanked local fans for their support, saying “it is good to play at home.”The same Liverpool supporters who cheered Firmino went out of their way to jeer Coutinho, who left the Reds for Barcelona earlier this year.Until Neymar stepped onto the pitch it was Croatia which had the best opportunities in a match that seemed headed for a dull draw.Defender Dejan Lovren had the best chance to open with a header that grazed Brazil goalkeeper Alisson’s right post after a corner.

‘Sports is a Unifier,’ Says Veep Boakai

first_imgVice President Joseph Nyuma Boakai says sport is a unifier and therefore the country can be better united through serious engagements in the various sporting disciplines.In an interview on a local radio yesterday, Ambassador Boakai said though he did not have the opportunity to play sport, soccer being his preference, the intrinsic value of sports makes it more expedient to be used as a medium to unite people.He revealed that he would be traveling to London, England, sometime in October this year to bring back a banner for Arsenal fans in Liberia.Ambassador Boakai also said he would receive a 16-20-seater team bus that he would donate to the national soccer team, Lone Star.“I will also bring back set jerseys from Arsenal to organize fan clubs for the team in the various schools in the country,” he stated.Ambassador Boakai is an ardent Arsenal fan. Though he touched on many issues of his life and how he has always been a leader even during his high school days at the College of West Africa (CWA), the interviewer went through extra lengths to draw him out, compelling him to explain the circumstances that led to his meeting his lovely wife, Mrs. Katumu Boakai, with a chuckle, as it was heard on the radio yesterday.It is instructive to note that many sporting bodies, including basketball, boxing and track and field are not provided with enough financial support for their development.Recently, a 12-member team of junior Liberian track and field athletes could not participate in the ECOWAS Track and Field games held in neighboring Guinea because there was no money for the trip.It is shocking that Ambassador Boakai is aware of the value of sports, but many top government officials have refused to see and therefore unwilling to provide the needed financial and material support for all the sporting codes in the country.It may be recalled that the late President Samuel Kanyon Doe won the hearts of Liberians when he devoted much resources to sports, with the result being players like George Weah, James Salinsa Debbah, Chris Wreh and many others who went to become famous in Europe.On the home front the Samuel Kanyon Sports Complex, began by the late President William R. Tolbert but completed by President Doe, is evidence of his legacy.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Costacurta hails Balotelli return, Mancini vows Italy ‘rebirth’

first_img0Shares0000Mario Balotelli has not played for Italy since the 2014 World Cup but has been playing well for Nice © AFP/File / VALERY HACHEMILAN, Italy, May 20 – Top Italian FA official Alessandro Costacurta on Sunday welcomed Roberto Mancini’s decision to recall Nice striker Mario Balotelli as the new Italy coach promised a “rebirth” of the national side.Balotelli, who has not played since Italy’s humiliating group-stage exit from the 2014 World Cup, has been recalled by Mancini for three upcoming friendlies. And Costacurta said Balotelli’s form at Nice had warranted him being given another a chance.“Becoming a parent does change you and nobody can attest that more than Mancini,” said the former AC Milan defender and current federation deputy commissioner.“I think Balotelli’s performances on the field were worthy of a call-up.”Balotelli — who Mancini coached at both Inter Milan and Manchester City — has scored 13 goals in 33 appearances for the Azzurri but had been overlooked due to behavioural issues.Mancini took over last Monday, six months after Gian Piero Ventura was sacked following Italy’s failure to qualify for the World Cup in Russia, and takes charge of his first game against Saudi Arabia in St Gallen, Switzerland on May 28.“Usually big disappointments can lead to great triumphs,” said Mancini.“In difficult moments that is when Italy found their pride and these players must take us back to the top of the world, where we deserve to be.“I want this to be the Italy of rebirth.”Mancini and Costacurta were speaking on the sidelines of the Kick-Off 2018 event organised by the Italian FA at Coverciano, near Florence.“I think Italy are still a football superpower, as we have 50 million coaches,” joked Mancini about Italy’s passionate fans.“I’m always very positive in general, even if people say Italy no longer has as much talent.“We had perhaps too much talent all together when we won the World Cup, but now we just need to give them time to grow and develop, keep the faith towards a good future.“Our football philosophy helped us win four World Cups and lose three finals.“Perhaps we’ve done better than Brazil all things considered, as we played more finals, even if we could never play as well as them, or like Spain in recent years.”Meanwhile, Costacurta said he hoped goalkeeping great Gianluigi Buffon — the holder of a record 176 caps — would have a change of heart and play one final friendly.“I’m sorry that Buffon does not want to do a goodbye with the national team like he did with Juventus, it would have been nice if all of Italy could have thanked him for what he has done over the years.“At this stage, I don’t think he’s going to change his mind, even though it doesn’t hurt to make a call or a text.”The Italians will play further friendlies against France in Nice on June 1 and the Netherlands, who also failed to reach the World Cup, three days later in Turin.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

DD Gardening: Can nature do all your pest control for you?

first_imgIncreasingly there is concern about the use of pesticides in our gardens, concerns on what this exposure does to our health and concerns on what exposure to pesticides can do to the wider environment.Many gardens are opting for a more natural approach to pest control in the garden.This change has been brought about not only because of the aforementioned concerns about the health of us and the planet, but also due to a reduction in available products for gardeners to use. Advertisement Over the number of years there has been a gradual reduction in over the counter pesticides due to changes in EU legislation covering their approved uses and changes to licensing on the active ingredients themselves.Many gardeners have now changed focus and rather than seeking a chemical cure are now working with biological controls to reduce pest problems in the garden.Put simply a Biological control is using one animal to control another, an example would be using Ladybirds to control Greenfly.Research on this topic has expanded greatly over the past few years and so has the availability of various Biological controls for the home gardener to utilise. Advertisement In addition to Ladybirds to control Greenfly, you can also get Biological controls for pests such as Vine Weevil, Leatherjackets, Caterpillars, Slugs and more.However these many not be easily sourced over-the-counter from your local garden centre, and you’ll need to shop online, such sites as MrMiddleton.com and HarrodHorticultural.com offer a selection.These Biological products are very effective, as long as they are applied at the correct time of year.For example the best time to apply Namasys to control Vine Weevil is now – as the hunt out any grubs which have over-wintered in your pots around the house, and then apply again in the Autumn to catch any grubs which have hatched this year.The joy of using such controls is that your or other peoples enjoyment of the plants or produce isn’t restricted whilst a synthetic chemical is applied, you don’t need to avoid touching or eating the produce after a Biological control, you don’t have to worry about protective masks and things for yourself when you’re applying them… and you don’t have to worry about pollution to the environment… blue snow with slug pellets anyone? For slug control you’ll definitely enjoy using Nemaslug – this microscopic worm lives on fungi in the soil, but in turns enters the slug through its air hole, and then sets about releasing loads of bacteria into the slug, killing the slug in the end. And when this worm has finished with one slug it lives in the soil and then goes hunting out more slugs, so as long as the soil is damp and warm they keep on hunting!So think less chemical warfare and more biological controls for the garden this year!DD Gardening: Can nature do all your pest control for you? was last modified: May 9th, 2017 by Gareth AustinShare 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:Gardeningpest controllast_img read more

The boy sued Donegal County Council through his parents for damages at Letterkenny Circuit Civil Court.Judge James O’Donoghue asked, “I thought Irish water took over all that?”Barrister Patricia McCallum, instructed by solicitor Cormac Hartnett, told the court that this area was still governed by Donegal County Council.The boy’s parents, who were in court, told the Judge that their son is now aged 9 and had made a full recovery.Judge O’Donoghue approved the offer as well as costs to the boy’s legal team.Child who tripped over gully awarded €20,000 was last modified: March 15th, 2019 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:armawardboybrokedonegalgulleyTriplast_img read more

FINN VALLEY AC REPORT: THE INCREDIBLE PICTURE THAT SAYS ‘WELL DONE SON’

first_imgSPORT can be exhilarating for children…..and nerve-wracking for mums!Kieran Carlin captured this superb image during the Under-12 National Cross-Country championships in Ratoath at the weekend.And it was a race which saw another rising star for Finn Valley Athletics Club in Shane McMonagle. “Shane ran with a calmness rarely seen at this young age, with a determination that eventually drove him to an exciting individual win,” said the club’s Patsy McGonagle.Shane (left) is a pupil at Tooban National School Burnfoot and becomes the third athlete from that school to take outright national cross victory – Denver Kelly and Ryan McDaid were the others.“Certainly there have been others from the same school collecting national medals in various disciplines over some 12 years underlining the obvious benefit of a positive influence from school staff and unselfish parental support,” said Patsy.In support on the team on the day a squad that medalled Jack Gillespie 7th ,Gleneely NS  recovering to his absolute credit from an early fall, Alex McGeehin, Doooish NS, John Reid, St Bridgets NS Convoy, Adam Mc Crudden, Tooban NS and Diarmuid McHugh, St Cairealls P S. A happy coach was Dermot Mc Granaghan . Team result -Mullingar 76,West Waterford 102,Finn Valley 121.Aoife Mc Grath got her tiny frame up to 10th U-12 girls a team that just missed out West Muskerry 86,Naas 177,Mullingar 217 and then Valley 257 .Emer O Neill ,Daniella Jansen et al all put in a good effort in difficult conditions .Aron Mc Glynn under 14 now a student at Cu Uladh,Ballinamore had a right good go but found the 3k journey a step too far faded to 5th and in his own relative age group 2500k its all set to focus approaching with determination on nailing the gold under 13 age division 2 weeks time in Wexford.Denver Kelly like Aaron was a member of Donegal county team bronze medallists and an added bonus was Aarons medal with Ulster regional team. Oisin Gallen was a deserving scoring member of Ulster under 16 team hence his medal .Day one done and dusted a big shout out to all who travelled athletes, parents and family members not to mention coachs . Before leaving the event a word of congrats to Christopher Johnson LAC under 23 winner and is now sure to join Valleys Sarah Collins on that travelling Irish squad to Budapest for European Cross a sgroup managed by LAC’s Teresa Mc Daid and with our own Neil Martin on coaching staff.FINN VALLEY AC REPORT: THE INCREDIBLE PICTURE THAT SAYS ‘WELL DONE SON’ was last modified: November 28th, 2012 by BrendaShare 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:FINN VALLEY AC REPORT: THE INCREDIBLE PICTURE THAT SAYS ‘WELL DONE SON’last_img read more

DRINK-DRIVER JAILED FOR 18 MONTHS AFTER HE LEFT VICTIM IN WHEELCHAIR

first_imgA Kilmacrennan man left another man in a wheelchair after he smashed into him after drinking five pints of beer before driving home in his jeep.Manus ‘Mandy’ Sweeney was left with horrific injuries after he was struck by a jeep being driven by Brian Rodden on September 1st, 2009.Rodden had consumed five pints at the Millbridge Bar before trying to drive just over a mile to his home. However Rodden’s jeep veered across the road just outside Kilmacrennan village and struck Mr Sweeney’s van head-on.Mr Sweeney had to be cut form his van and was rushed to Letterkenny General Hospital before being transferred to a Dublin hospital for treatment.The court was told that Mr Sweeney, 63, was initially a wheelchair but now needs crutches to get around on and was more-or-less housebound.The court also heard how Rodden has since been charged with ANOTHER case of drink-driving which is also before the courts.Rodden told the court that he had tried to phone his victim but Mr Sweeney’s wife said she did not think it was a good idea.He told Letterkenny Circuit Court “I’m very sorry for what has happened to him and his family and if I could take it back I would.”Barrister Peter Nolan said his client is trying to come to terms with his drinking and is attending addiction services.Judge John O’Hagan said it was a tragedy for both sides in the case because he did not think Rodden was a man who would normally come before the courts.However he said it troubled him greatly that the accused had another drink-driving case “in the pipeline.”He sentenced Rodden to 18 months in prison for dangerous driving causing serious injury and suspended the last six months.AT HEARING © 2011 donegaldaily.com, all Rights ReservedThe copying, republication or redistribution of donegaldaily.com Content, including by framing or similar means, is expressly prohibited by law.Follow us on www.twitter.com/donegaldailyFollow us on www.facebook.com/donegaldailySell anything on www.donegaldailyclassifieds.comDRINK-DRIVER JAILED FOR 18 MONTHS AFTER HE LEFT VICTIM IN WHEELCHAIR was last modified: November 13th, 2011 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:Brian Roddendangerous driving causing serious injuryManus ‘Mandy’ Sweeneylast_img read more
