first_imgCoach Junior Bennett has hailed Kirk Edwards as a welcome addition to the Jamaica Scorpions and believes the Barbadian can help the team to turn around its fortunes this season.Edwards, one of three overseas players hoping to help the Scorpions better their fourth place finish from last season, slammed an unbeaten 115 on the final day of the team’s lone warm-up game at Kensington Park yesterday.Resuming on 99 yesterday Edwards guided Paul Palmer’s XI past their victory target of 283.Scores: David Bernard’s XI 235 and 192; Palmer’s XI 145 and 285 for three.”Edwards has looked the part starting with the final trial game and now the warm-up match,” cited Bennett.”It was particularly pleasing to see how he applied himself in the second innings of this match, got his century, and steered the team home.””It’s the sort of form that you want to see from your batsmen, and I thought he (Andre) McCarthy, and (John) Campbell, did that well.”McCarthy, 81, and, Campbell, 55, helped to lay the foundation for the runs chase on the third day.last_img read more

LMHRA Frowns at ‘Unethical Behaviors’ in Medical Profession

first_imgThe Board Chair of the Liberia Medicine and Health Regulatory Authority (LMHRA), Clavenda Bright-Parker has challenged dispensers across the country to exhibit high ethical standards in the discharge of their assigned duties.Madam Parker made specific reference to a group of well over 300 of dispensers —who just completed a month long training program in Monrovia.She also frowned on “unethical behaviors” in the provision of health services by dispensers, who she observed over the years, their exhibited actions have adversely created medical effects on the patients.“As a result of wrongfully dispensing or dispensers intentionally giving patients illegal or counterfeit medicines that no longer have the requisite power or active ingredients to cure any illness, patients are sometimes left to suffer.”The LMHRA board chair made the disclosure on Friday, May 16, 2014, when spoke at program marking the certification of dispensers who were trained by the LMHRA for six months.The program held on the campus of the College of West Africa (CWA) in Monrovia, brought to an end the second phase of the Accredited Medicines Store (AMS) Dispensers Training Program (DTP).Madam Parker who is highly respected as the first professional in Liberia and in the Sub-region said, with the six months training, the dispensers challenge for now is to exercise high level of ethics in the discharge of their job, “because this is paramount in the medical field.”“We are dealing with the lives of the ordinary persons, and anything we do contrary to what we supposed to do will have adverse effects on our patient life.”“You may do the wrong thing on your jobs and get away with it here on earth, but you will not get away in front of God. Make it a practice to do your job with diligence because whatever negative you do is against your own people,” she warned.She called on the dispensers to their neighbors with clear conscience by ensuring that they apply the proper medical care.She then urged the trainees not to dispense the wrong drugs to their patients, and not to intentionally dispense counterfeit medicines.Assistant Minister for Preventive Services, Tolbert Nyenswah who proxy for Minister Walter Gwenigale at the occasion, said the training offers a unique opportunity for the country.“As a dispenser, if you don’t dispense the right drugs, then you are during more harms than good.”Minister Nyenswah said the training initiative will help bring to an end the issue of giving out wrongful medications, and counteract or illegal drugs peddling on the Liberian market.The LMHRA, he said, is doing a great job since its establishment, thereby ensuring that the country’s health system has quality and affordable drugs.  Dispenser representative who spoke on behalf of her colleagues’ behalf, Barbara Momboe acknowledged that dispensers have now become professional with ethical consciousness.LMHRA Managing Director, Pharmacist David Sumo, urged the trainees to always bear in mind that they have an obligation to do the right things to save the Liberian people lives.According to him, the LMHRA has worked and continue to work and make the country market-free substandard products.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Weaver and Colon are almost back

first_imgTempe, Ariz. – There were handshakes and smiles all around Monday in the bullpen behind Diablo Stadium. Bartolo Colon and Jered Weaver, the two injured aces of the Angels pitching staff, inched closer to rejoining the rotation after completing 45-pitch bullpen sessions. Both pitchers are at least a week away from taking the mound in an actual game, and neither is expected to start the season in Anaheim The lanky right-hander hasn’t ruled out making a start on April 6 – his turn in the rotation – but the question now is whether he’ll do it with the Angels or in Tempe, where he’ll remain if he’s not in Anaheim to begin the year. Colon’s status is less certain, but no less encouraging. He’s made significant strides since the opening of camp, surprising the Angels with his progress coming back from the rotator cuff injury that ended his season last June. It’s now very likely that Colon will be pitching with the Angels by the beginning of the summer rather than the end. “He’s made tremendous progress,” Scioscia said. He said, he said Pitcher Joe Saunders said after his start Sunday that he felt some tightness in his left elbow. That was news to Scioscia, who said Monday all his health reports on Saunders were positive. “Who’s your source on that?” Scioscia joked. When told it was Saunders himself, Scioscia didn’t miss a beat, saying, “Jose’s not privy to that information.” Scioscia chalked Saunders discomfort up to the normal pain and irritation of spring training, and Saunders didn’t sound concerned. “I’ll be fine,” he said. Taking the 11th With two weeks left before the start of the season, the battle for the final spot in the bullpen is still an open race. The Angels will carry 11 pitchers, according to Scioscia, and are looking for a durable arm to round out the staff. “Someone who can give us length and multiple innings,” Scioscia said. A lot depends on Weaver, but assuming he returns near the start of the season, Hector Carrasco will move to the bullpen. That leaves seven pitchers vying for one spot. Three of the candidates – Dustin Moseley, Chris Bootcheck and Alex Serrano – fared well Sunday in a combined shutout effort against the Rangers. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Brentford to beat Watford to Leicester defender

first_imgBrentford are hoping to win the race to clinch the loan signing of Leicester defender Liam Moore.The England Under-21 defender has also been strongly linked with a move to Championship rivals Watford, but it appears that the west London club are now in pole position to bring him back to Griffin Park.Moore has fallen down the pecking order at Leicester following the arrival of Robert Huth from Stoke and the return of Matthew Upson to first-team action.But the 22-year-old is keen to get his career back on track and secure regular first-team football until the end of the season so he can keep his place in the England Under-21 side for the European Championship Finals, which take place this summer.Moore is now set to seal a temporary switch to Brentford, where he enjoyed a similar loan spell back in February 2013. 1 Liam Moore in action for Leicester last_img read more

first_imgA solicitor representing on-the-run fraudster Francois de Dietrich has been ordered to attend the High Court in Belfast to potentially be questioned about his client’s current whereabouts.Mr Justice Deeny directed that the lawyer must come before him on Monday after describing his absence from court as “completely unacceptable”.In January the judge sentenced de Dietrich (below) to 18 months in jail for failing to fully disclose his worldwide assets. A warrant was also issued for his arrest. De Dietrich is living openly in a village on hour from the French capital of Paris.But the judge was told that his solicitor was unavailable due to involvement in a criminal case in Dublin.Mr Justice Deeny said: “He was directed to attend here this morning in case it was appropriate to put direct questions to him as an officer of the court about the whereabouts of his client.“He will answer orders of this court while he’s an officer of this court. He is to be here at 9.45am on Monday morning.”He added: “I don’t want any nonsense about trials in Dublin. He is a solicitor of the supreme court of Northern Ireland.”Court proceedings launched by the Financial Services Authority led to an injunction banning de Dietrich and his company ETIC Solutions from taking any more deposits.The regulatory body also obtained an initial order freezing more than £20 million in assets linked to the businessman.In court yesterday lawyers for the FSA also set out details of five bank accounts in Northern Ireland covered by the injunction.Two of them are in the name of ETIC in Derry, with one said to be holding £4.3m.The hearing will resume on Monday.De Dietrich is due to appeal his sentence for contempt and insists his business is legitimate. Two hundred people from Donegal lost millions of euro in investments they made in liquidated stock through him.Members of the business community, sporting figures and even Travellers are thought to have handed over money.His con was ended however when a donegaldaily investigation exposed his scam – and his previous convictions for fraud in France.CROOK FRANCOIS: JUDGE ORDERS HIS LAWYER TO APPEAR IN COURT! was last modified: June 11th, 2011 by gregShare 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:Ballybofeyconmancrookdonegaldaily.comFrancois de Dietrichfraudsterlast_img read more


first_imgCELTIC fans watched in disbelief this evening after the Hoops lost 3-2 to Inverness Caledonian Thistle – blowing the chance to go top and handing the SPL title advantage to Rangers.It was a poor performance from Celtic in the teatime kick-off, missing the chance to go top with their much talked-about game in hand.It leaves the Hoops one point behind Rangers in the title race, with two of their three remaining games away from home. It also means the title could go down to the final day of the season.Rangers play Hearts at Ibrox on Saturday lunchtime in a game they almost always win. Celtic play away to Kilmarnock 24 hours later.Then Rangers play Dundee United at Ibrox next Tuesday before Celtic travel away again – this time to meet Hearts at Tynecastle next Wednesday.The Hoops finally play at home again on the last day of the season on Sunday week against Motherwell while Rangers travel to Kilmarnock on the same day – again Rangers almost always win at Rugby Park. Tonight’s shocker at Inverness got off to an awful start for Celtic.Adam Rooney’s chip on seven minutes gave the hosts the lead, but a superb Kris Commons strike from 18 yards out two minutes later restored the balance.Grant Munro’s screamer restored Caley’s lead on 53 minutes, then Shane Sutherland fired home for the third.Commons converted for Celtic from the spot when Shaun Maloney was felled in stoppage time, but it came too late.Paddy McCourt had a late shout for a penalty waved away by the referee. But it would have been an undeserved point – ICT were the better team.SUPER CALEY GO BALLISTIC, CELTIC WERE ATROCIOUS (PART 2) was last modified: May 5th, 2011 by gregShare 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:3-2CelticICTlast_img read more

Swansea set to appoint Graham Potter as their new manager

first_img1 Potter will take charge at the Liberty Stadium next season Swansea are set to appoint Graham Potter as their new manager after finalising a compensation package with Swedish club Ostersund for his services.Englishman Potter has been in charge of Ostersund since December 2010, but the 43-year-old will complete a move to Wales early next week.“Swansea City can confirm a compensation package has been finalised with Ostersund for the services of Graham Potter,” said a club statement.“The club has also agreed personal terms with Potter along with his assistant Billy Reid and recruitment analyst Kyle Macauley, who are set to join him at the Liberty.Swansea’s seven-season stay in the Premier League came to an end last month.The Welsh club decided not to take up the option of extending Carlos Carvalhal’s short-term contract after the Portuguese failed to save them from dropping into the Sky Bet Championship.Paul Clement, Bob Bradley, Francesco Guidolin and Garry Monk have also been in the Swansea hot-seat since 2014.Potter, who played for Stoke and West Brom, has been of interest to several English clubs due to his success at Ostersund.He led them from the fourth to the top tier and Ostersund won the Swedish Cup in 2017.That saw Ostersund qualify for the Europa League last season, where they reached the last 32 of the competition.Potter oversaw a 2-1 victory at Arsenal but they bowed out of the competition 4-2 on aggregate.last_img read more

ReportsDPD Div. 1Drumkeen Utd. Res. 3Bonagee Utd. Res. 1Drumkeen took all three points in this encounter with Swilly at St Patricks Park on Saturday. The home team took the lead on twenty eight minutes with a superb goal from Sean Peoples when his long range effort from thirty five yards crept in under the cross bar giving goalkeeper Caolan Bolton no chance. Up until the goal Swilly had the lion’s share of possession without creating any real chances of note, Oisin Duffy then had a couple of wides for Swilly before Drumkeen doubled their advantage after thirty nine minutes through Peter McNamee, Lee Guthrie’s effort was saved by keeper Bolton and the ball fell to McNamee who made no mistake from two yards out. Drumkeen went in two up at half time. Swilly nearly pulled one back right at the start of the second half but Cormac Toland saw his effort just go past the post. Drumkeen played much better in second half but Swilly were still in the game and had a Shaun Crossan shot saved by Michael Gibson and Caolan Murray fired wide. Drumkeen wrapped up the points when Conor Laverty got the third when he scored from a Peter McNamee right wing cross. The home team might have got a fourth, Lee Guthrie had a shot saved and Conor Laverty put in a good cross but there was no one there to get on the end of it. Swilly did pull a goal back with five minutes left but it proved to be no more than a consolation goal. Some good young players on both sides with Johnny Black and Lee Kennedy doing well for Drumkeen and Caolan Murray and Ryan McDaid showing well for Swilly.DRUMKEEN: Michael Gibson, Johnny Black, Darren Bonner, Kevin Boyle, Chris Kyle, Lee Guthrie, Shane Laverty, Lee Kennedy, Sean Peoples, Conor Laverty, Peter McNamee, Subs: Mark Bonner on for Sean Peoples,SWILLY, – Caolan Bolton, Lewis Cole, Caolan Murray, Glen McElhinney, Anthony Fisher, Shaun Crossan, Cathal Diver, Ryan McDaid, Oisin Duffy, Liam O Donnell, Cormac Toland, Subs: John Roulstone on for Bolton at half time, Referee Vincent Mc Laughlin.Fixtures Wednesday, July 16th at 7:30pmDonegal News League CupGroup ACockhill Celtic v Drumkeen Utd.
