Coaching milestone for Francis

first_img BACK-TO-BACK VICTORIES Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, coached by Francis for a decade, joined Tyus and Gail Devers with back-to-back 100m victories of her own in 2008 and 2012 and Thompson gave Francis a record equalling hat-trick in Rio. Noted American coach, Bobby Kersee, conditioned Devers to hair-splitting wins in 1992 and 1996. In 1992, Devers barely held off Jamaica’s Juliet Cuthbert. Four years later, Merlene Ottey surged to within millimetres of Devers, who became the second woman win with the Olympic 100m twice. Kersee also coached 1988 winner, Florence Griffith-Joyner, for much of her career. Her 200-metre silver medals in the 1984 Olympics and the 1987 World Championships came with Kersee directing her training. However, she married 1984 Olympic triple jump champion, Al Joyner, and he took over as Florence’s coach for the 1988 season. Before long, she returned to Kersee’s guidance and raced away from her rivals in Seoul, the South Korean city that hosted the Olympic Games that year. Fraser-Pryce and Thompson have come through the track and field programme at the University of Technology and the MVP Track Club, where Francis is the head coach. With his coaching advice, Fraser-Pryce has also won an unprecedented trio of World Championship titles in the straight line dash. She and Thompson share the Jamaican 100-metre record at 10.70 seconds, which was set by Fraser-Pryce in 2012. Thompson matched it at this year’s National Senior Championships. Elaine Thompson moved to the forefront of women’s sprinting with her gold medals in the just concluded Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. When she crossed the line first in the 100 metres in Rio, her victory vaulted coach Stephen Francis into an exclusive club. Her performance made Francis just the third man to coach three successive gold-medal winners in the women’s 100 metres. It first occurred in 1960, 1964 and 1968 when sprinters coached by Ed Temple won the 100m for the United States. The first triumph was part of a 100/200/4x100m sprint triple by Wilma Rudolph at the Rome Olympics. That was followed by back-to-back 100-metre wins by Wyomia Tyus. Rudolph and Tyus were student-athletes under Temple’s care at Tennessee State University. Tyus was in fact, the first athlete, male or female, to defend an Olympic 100-metre title.last_img read more

Man, 38, Commits Suicide

first_imgA man believed to be 38 years old has reportedly committed suicide by swallowing acid water. The incident took place in Gbablin, Nimba County, around the Cocopa concession on the main road from Ganta to Saclapea.According to residents, Princeton N. Saye took his life by drinking acid on the night of Sunday, July 17. Acid (hydraulic acid) is used to process latex rubber.Although the reason for the sucide is yet to be established, residents who previously heard about the incident told this newspaper that on Sunday night at about 10 p.m., the deceased and his wife (not named) were sitting on their frontporch, but after turning in for the night and locking both the front and room doors, he allegedly unexpectedly took his own life.“it was after he drank the acid water,” a neighbor said, “he came outside naked and behaved as if he had gone mad. He suddenly dropped dead.” At that point his distraught wife started screaming for help, but by the time help arrived, Saye had already expired making all efforts to revive him futile.Radio Flumpa Station Manager, Mark Samah, said prior to commiting suicide, there were no reports of any quarrel or issues in Saye’s famiy. The late Saye was a farmer who primarily earned his living by burning and selling charcoal to sustain his family. He is survived by his wife, three children and a host of relatives.This is not the first time that someone has died by the same means in Cocopa or its vicinity. Two years ago, it was reported that a seven year old boy accidentally drank acid and died.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Coalition ravaging the sugar belt – PPP

first_imgAs Guyana remembered and reflected upon the sacrifices of the five slain sugar workers – Rambarran, Pooran, Lallabagee, Surajballi and Harry – on their death anniversary on Saturday, the People’s Progressive Party (PPP) said the incident is more relevant today than ever. “Seventy years after the Enmore shooting, thousands of sugar workers have been coldheartedly fired and plunged into economic despair through the politically motivated closure of estates by the [A Partnership for National Unity/Alliance For Change] APNU/AFC Government ravaging the sugar belt and the national economy in the process,” the Party said in a statement.According to the Opposition, tens of thousands of others, who indirectly depended upon these estates for their livelihoods, have also been severely affected as many local economies were decimated by the Government’s uncaring action.“Guyanese are once again confronted by a burgeoning dictatorship under the APNU/AFC Government which, through its visionless and inept leadership, is strangling our people through harsh and unjustified economic policies. With innumerable taxes, within the three years of its administration thus far, Guyanese have seen a derailing of progress, their standards of living plummet, continually steep rise in cost of living and opportunities for advancement dwindled,” PPP said.The Party went on to say that the workers continue to witness encroachment on their freedoms, growing societal fears through spiralling crime and oppressive policies, massive corruption, discrimination, rising unemployment and blatant disregard for constitutional processes.“The struggle of the sugar workers seventy years ago and that of the late Dr [Cheddi] Jagan have not only become more relevant in the current circumstances in our country, but have intensified for a better life for all. The PPP therefore salutes the invaluable sacrifices of the Enmore Martyrs for the influence it had and continues to have on the quest for betterment. Our party remains resolute in its struggle with the Guyanese people for a free, democratic and prosperous Guyana,” the Opposition noted. According to the PPP, the 70th death anniversary of the Enmore Martyrs should remind of the selfless sacrifices of the five slain sugar workers. It recalled that in 1948, having being strangled by social and economic hardships, the burdensome “cut and load” cane harvesting system and being deprived from having a union of choice to represent them, sugar workers were forced to mount protest actions after their fair demands were continually being ignored by the sugar producers.“Instead of their demands being met, riot Police fired on the poor, simple workers killing five in the process. They died in their quest for a better life for all the workers and their struggles and horrific deaths significantly impacted Dr Cheddi Jagan. On that unforgettable day of their funerals, he silently pledged to dedicate his life to the cause of the Guyanese people and to free them from bondage and exploitation,” the statement added.It went on to say that fortified in his belief and determination, Dr Jagan was unrelenting in his struggles for the advancement of Guyana and Guyanese. Having founded the PPP in 1950, Dr Jagan, despite being incarcerated and deprived of his rights during the decades of his unremitting struggles, never succumbed to the atrocities meted out to him and his followers by the oppressive forces.In this the centenary year of his birth, PPP is reminding Guyanese that, in the end, his resoluteness prevailed and a new era of freedom and democracy was born under his leadership in October 1992.last_img read more

‘Mommy party’ legislation irks some in state

first_imgBut the purveyors of so-called nanny government would like the public to consider another question: What’s wrong with making the state a better, safer place to live? “I guess the government is trying to be the nanny, or the parent, or the supervisor,” acknowledged Assemblyman Lloyd Levine, D-Van Nuys, author of legislation to ban the sale of energy-hogging incandescent light bulbs. “And you know what? Sometimes the nanny is right, sometimes the parents are right … oftentimes the parents are right.” So far, some of the measures are meant to protect children – such as the anti-spanking proposal and another that would prohibit parents from smoking in cars when kids are present. Other measures are meant to help people eat right – such as bills to require chain restaurants to display the calorie content of meals and a bill to ban trans fats from restaurants and school cafeterias. And then there are measures meant to protect the environment – such as Levine’s light bulb bill, which would cut greenhouse gas emissions by pushing people to use compact fluorescent bulbs. All of the measures irk Republicans. “If somebody wants to go ahead and choose to do something that may not always be in their best interest, hey, this is America, you get to choose those things,” said Sen. George Runner, R-Lancaster. “If we’re going to try to keep people safe all the time,” Runner said, tongue-in-cheek, “then we ought to pass laws requiring them to wear helmets, safety goggles and shoulder pads.” Sen. Joe Simitian, D-Palo Alto, disagrees. “At some point our personal liberties bump into the need to keep the public safe,” Simitian said, “and that’s the balance we have to strike.” Geoffrey Nunberg, a linguistics professor at UC Berkeley and author of “Talking Right,” credits Republicans with effectively using the phrase “nanny government” to make a point that appeals to the party’s conservative base. “It does everything the right wants it to do,” said Nunberg. “It suggests these measures are not just officious meddling but there’s something unmanly about them. It’s the old story: The Republicans are the daddy party and the Democrats are the mommy party.” (916) 441-4651 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! SACRAMENTO – Ban parents from spanking their toddlers. Force restaurants to disclose calories on menus. Forbid school cafeterias from cooking with trans fats. Prohibit smoking on state beaches. Make homeowners switch to energy-efficient light bulbs. Legislators who have proposed these measures, mostly Democrats, have been on a tear in recent weeks, telling Californians, “Hey, we know what’s best for you.” But enough already, say their mostly Republican opponents, who are increasingly railing against what they call “frivolous” proposals and embracing a term often repeated in the Capitol this legislative session: Nanny government. “Some people in that building believe we should have more government nose-wipers running around, intervening in every possible situation they can,” said Doug LaMalfa, a Republican assemblyman who represents Northern California. What’s going on is not unusual for an Assembly and Senate controlled by Democrats, many of them with a leftward bent, who worry that if constituents are left to their own devices they won’t make the right decisions. California has seen this before. The Legislature in the 1980s made motorcyclists wear helmets and car occupants use seat belts – laws that undoubtedly have saved thousands of lives. But many people, especially Libertarians, think it’s government run amok. “Unfortunately, politicians believe they can run your life better than you can,” said Aaron Starr, chairman of the California Libertarian Party. “They’re a bunch of busybodies. They should all do us a favor and go home.” last_img read more

first_imgBUSINESS and political leaders have expressed their ‘dismay’ at plans by anti-austerity campaigners to picket ‘the greatest free advert Donegal has ever had.’Leading politicians from England, Scotland, Wales and the North will visit and stay in Letterkenny on Monday and Tuesday as part of a meeting of the British-Irish Parliamentary Assembey.The Assembly, established in 1990, consists of British and Irish Parliamentarians from both the Upper and Lower Houses of both Parliaments together with Parliamentarians from each of the Assemblies of Northern Ireland, Wales, Scotland, Jersey, Guernsey and the Isle of Man. They will visit Downings and stay in the county for two days, hearing  Taoiseach Enda Kenny address them at LYIT on Monday afternoon in front of journalists from throughout these islands.But anti-austerity campaigners plan to “wreck” the visit.Organisers of the visit have expressed dismay at “a minority of people and their plans to destroy Donegal’s best free advertisement in years.”One organiser told us: “We will have the leading politicians from all of the nations around us here in Donegal and a small bunch of people will try to ruin it for everyone.” Several hotels in Letterkenny have been booked out for the events.But Donegal Campaign Against Home and Water Taxes (Donegal CAHWT) alongside Donegal Action Against Austerity (DAAA) are now jointly organising a protest on Mondayto greet Enda Kenny when he visits LYIT. Other groups have also been invited to attend.A spokesman said: “This is an Anti-Austerity Protest and our intention is to send out a clear message to the Government that austerity isn’t working.“Any economist will tell you that you cannot tax your way out of recession.“People are suffering – this Government does not seem to acknowledge this as it keeps introducing new taxes, announcing further cutbacks and these; coupled with high emigration and lack of employment opportunities, are strangling the Country. The threat of deducting money directly from bank accounts and social welfare payments shows that we are not living in a democracy – this is a dictatorship. “We want Mr. Kenny to realise that people have had enough. This is being proven by the formation of anti-austerity groups countrywide. The simple fact is that the poor cannot pay, and to add insult to injury those who created this crisis remain untouched and unaccountable. Ordinary people are struggling to put food on the table and heat their homes whilst watching politicians guard their own salaries and perks. If the Government was really serious about everyone shouldering the burden then it should have led by example – which has not happened.“We are calling on all concerned citizens to join us on Monday, March 4th assembling at 3pm on the Port Road outside the LYIT.”ANGER AS ANTI-AUSTERITY CAMPAIGNERS PLAN PROTEST AT ‘BIGGEST ADVERT FOR DONEGAL IN YEARS’ was last modified: March 1st, 2013 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:ANGER AS ANTI-AUSTERITY CAMPAIGNERS PLAN PROTEST AT ‘BIGGEST ADVERT FOR DONEGAL IN YEARS’last_img read more

Newman Named MVC Pitcher of the Week for the Fourth Time this Season

first_imgNewman went 2-0 with a 1.73 ERA in 8.1 innings in helping Drake go 2-0 at Bradley. Newman, who recorded 15 strikeouts with just one walk against the Braves, is now 9-6 with a 1.56 ERA with a league-leading 155 strikeouts.
