Grande Nadal: visit Anita, the girl she hit

first_imgThis Friday, after his morning coaching, Nadal needed to satisfy the girl and went to visit her at the Melbourne Park services. I needed to verify I used to be superb and be along with her for some time. His identify is Anita, he’s from the metropolis and was accompanied at the moment by his mother and father and his brother.Rafa gave him a cap from his Academy signed by him and with a dedication (“For my good friend Anita, all the finest”) and shared along with her some anecdotes earlier than saying goodbye and turn into a self portrait along with her, the different protagonist of a gesture that everybody has celebrated. The girl confessed that the world primary was her favourite tennis participant and that she “bought excited” by her “kindness” and the particulars that weren’t anticipated “in abosolute”. The human high quality of Rafa Nadal is well-known, praised by everybody in the circuit above even his tennis capability. In his second spherical match of the Australian Open in opposition to Federico Delbonis, the Balearic unintentionally kicked a ball boy by subtracting a serve from the Argentine. Frightened by what may occur, she was instantly fascinated with the girl, who informed her she was superb. Then he kissed her whereas she held again the tears with a fortitude that primary praised later: “It was a phenomena.”last_img read more

Guyanese delegation to attend largest int’l oil conference

first_imgThe Georgetown Chamber of Commerce and Industry (GCCI) is presently preparing a delegation to head to what has been dubbed the largest international oil conference slated to be held between May 6 and 9, in Houston, Texas, United States.The Chamber has secured the participation of seven local businesses but is seeking a larger group to make a statement while representing Guyana on the international stage.GCCI Vice Chairman Nicholas BoyerVice President of GCCI, Nicholas Boyer told the media on Friday that the organisation is hoping for the participation of more local companies which are only required to be a member of the Chamber.Boyer added that the conference is expected to see the participation of about 10,000 persons from the oil sector. According to him, the goal of the mission is to foster relations with other oil producing companies to benefit Guyana and its economy.The Vice Chairman told the media that local businesses have shown interest in the oil sector, but the oil industry is coming with “a lot of standards” and new methods of business that Guyana is not used to.In this regard, he pointed to the need for this gap to be bridged so that interested businesses can be transported to the other level or actually offering services.He said, “It is through education not just by learning what this specific machinery do in the oil industry but the networking because one of the underrated ways of learning is networking and by networking these businesses have the interest and will learn a little bit more and a little bit more in terms of what they can do to reduce that barrier to entry to finally get across that hurdle to say hey I can now start selling a product, I can now start performing a service.”It was on this note that the GCCI bragged of the success from the previous trade mission it had to the city of Aberdeen in Scotland, United Kingdom.The Vice President explained that the trip managed to meet the objectives and in fact, the two countries are likely to set up a memorandum of understanding (MoU).In addition, he noted that a number of other companies have expressed interest in investing in Guyana and are likely to begin before year end.The trade mission to Aberdeen was facilitated last November by the GCCI.last_img read more

The Briton conceded a loss wasn’t the best possible welcome for him, he is comforted by the fact that he has a team strong enough to bounce back.“Obviously this was not the best way to welcome me to Kenya because it is my first day here but from what I have seen I am impressed. Losing a Cup game on penalties is a painful way of going out but they played really well especially in the second half but got caught on the counter,” Kerr told Capital Sports after watching the side.“We took the ball well, moved well, created chances which we didn’t score. The team has players with ability; they are comfortable on the ball can control and pass, despite playing on a poor surface,” Kerr stated.New Gor Mahia head coach Dylan Kerr savors the surrounding at the Thika Stadium on July 9, 2017 during the side’s GOtv Shield clash against Bandari. PHOTO/Timothy Olobulu“We should start getting that winning mentality because they lost the previous match, drew last weekend and now this cup game. We have to take lots of positives but obviously there are a few negatives which we will work on.”Kerr has promised Gor fans that they should expect the team back flying on top, noting that he has been impressed with the passion he has seen at the club straight from the fans to the technical bench and players.“They should expect hard work dedication, sacrifice, standards honesty, transparency and working as a team. The fans are fantastic, the staff I have met are great, everyone works hard and everyone’s goal is to be successful which is quite great for a club,” the coach added.He joins K’Ogalo after leaving his coaching role with the Chesterfield Under-18 team back in England and his first assignment will be to lead Gor to a friendly against English Premier League club Everton FC in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania on Thursday.New Gor Mahia head coach Dylan Kerr with assistant coach Zedekiah Otieno at half time during their GOtv Shield match against Bandari at the Thika Stadium on July 9, 2017. PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluKerr, who knows a lot about the English game expects a thrilling but tough match from the Merseyside club, and has urged his players to put in their best show and audition against one of the best teams from around the world.“The motivation for each player is simple; go out and show them what you got as a player because if you show a good performance you will get recognized. There are a lot of African players in Europe and if you have to get there you got to perform against the big teams and it is a good marker and players should go out there and enjoy themselves,” Kerr commented.After the Tanzania experience, Gor will make their way back to the country with their sole purpose being to reclaim the Kenyan Premier League title.Kerr finds the club perched at the apex of the log on 28 points, same as defending champions Tusker but with a superior goal difference. He is confident he will finish in the same position at the end of the season and has asked for support from the fans.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Major Chelsea blow! Chelsea star set for TWO MONTHS out

first_imgChelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois is facing up to two months on the sidelines, according to widespread reports.The 23-year-old Belgian is understood to have suffered a serious knee injury in training.Having undergone scans on Thursday, he has been ruled out of Saturday’s trip to Everton and is not likely to return until October at the earliest.Jose Mourinho can call upon the experienced Asmir Begovic to deputise, but losing Courtois for an extended period of time will be a big blow for the Premier League champions.Courtois has been outstanding for the Blues since returning from a loan spell at Atletico Madrid and played a key role in their title triumph last season.The injury setback comes on the back of disappointing start to the campaign, which has seen Chelsea win just one of their opening four matches.

Brentford’s defender faces disciplinary action over refusal to play

first_img James Tarkowski Brentford defender James Tarkowski faces internal disciplinary action after refusing to play in tonight’s Sky Bet Championship clash with Burnley.The Bees have issued a statement clarifying their stance, with the Clarets having reportedly bid for the 23-year-old earlier this week.The statement read: “James Tarkowski will be the subject of internal disciplinary action after telling head coach Dean Smith that he did not wish to play against Burnley in tonight’s Sky Bet Championship match.“Following discussions with Smith, Tarkowski declared himself unavailable for the fixture despite being selected in the starting line-up.

I can’t decide if I’m moving from club to club. It’s up to Brentford to decide where my future lies.” 1last_img read more

D’backs sweep aside Cubs

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREChargers go winless in AFC West with season-ending loss in Kansas CityFor the anguished Chicago Cubs, it’s another cry of “Wait Til Next Year.” Chris Young homered on the game’s first pitch, Livan Hernandez wriggled out of several serious jams and Arizona beat the Cubs, 5-1, Saturday night to complete a three-game sweep of their first-round series. Next stop for the baby-faced Diamondbacks: a surprising trip to the NLCS. “Who would have thought that at the beginning of spring training or the season? I’m sure there were a lot of people thinking maybe .500 baseball,” Eric Byrnes said during a wild champagne celebration in the clubhouse. “We have guys who are ready to win. We’ve already exceeded expectations so far and we’re going to continue to do so.” Now, the Diamondbacks get four days to rest before hosting the NL West rival Colorado Rockies in Game 1 of the NLCS on Thursday. Colorado beat Philadelphia, 2-1, Saturday night to complete a three-game sweep. NLDS: Arizona finishes off Chicago, which must wait til next year again. By Rick Gano THE ASSOCIATED PRESS CHICAGO – Short on stars but brimming with young talent, the Arizona Diamondbacks pulled off a sweet playoff sweep and celebrated like October regulars. Showing no jitters before a raucous crowd at Wrigley Field, the Diamondbacks hit three homers and turned four double plays to back another strong pitching performance from Hernandez and three relievers. Byrnes and Stephen Drew, who finished the series 7-for-14, also homered as Arizona extended the Cubs’ streak of futility without a World Series championship to 99 years. “The young guys are taking us where we’ve gotten. We don’t do it without a concerted effort from everybody on our team,” Diamondbacks manager Bob Melvin said. “We can’t rely on three or four guys to shoulder the load. We’ve got to get it from multiple guys every day, and our younger guys showed up big.” Even a return to Wrigley Field couldn’t get Chicago’s bats out of a series-long slumber. “We knew that we’d have to try to take them out of it and take the momentum away, and Chris Young’s home run in the first inning went a long way with that,” Melvin said. Call it curses or bad luck or whatever, but on this sultry October night the Diamondbacks showed what was obvious since the series began – they were the better team, even though they had only four players on the first-round roster with postseason experience. “These guys are as talented a young group as I’ve ever seen,” Byrnes said. “It’s been fun to watch the maturation and watch them grow up.” Chicago’s best chance might have come in the opener, when Manager Lou Piniella made a move that will be questioned for years. He pulled Carlos Zambrano after six innings and only 85 pitches with the score 1-all because he planned to bring his ace back on three days’ rest in Game 4. The Cubs never got that far. Chicago went from worst-to-first in Piniella’s first season as manager, and the team’s long-suffering fans were ecstatic after a late surge to the NL Central crown. But just when they began to get excited about ending the championship drought, the Cubs went down in a first-round sweep. “This is just a start, fellas. We’re going to get better with this,” Piniella said. The NL West champion Diamondbacks were the first team to have a league’s best record and worst batting average since the 1906 Chicago White Sox.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

first_imgDue to the economic recession and the lower tax take from the business sector, the Revenue are on a mission to collect every cent they are owed says a leading tax consultant.The Tax ClinicMichael Coll, from The Tax Clinic, says that there has been a huge increase in the number of PAYE workers who are being questioned by the Revenue about their different sources of income.The Letterkenny-based businessman says if you are in receipt of any other income apart from your income earned as an employee you may have an obligation to declare this on what is called a Form 12. Mr. Coll says that you may have been sent out a Form 12 for the following reasons:• You could have been chosen at random to complete a Form 12.• The Revenue may have obtained third party information regarding additional non-PAYE income such as payments from the Department of Agriculture, Rental Income etc.• You have had a gain subject to Capital Gains Tax during the year, an example would be property or shares sold. His advises if you have received a Form 12 do not ignore it. You must complete the form honestly ensuring that you declare your income from all sources. In some circumstances it may be beneficial to seek professional advice.To find out more log onto or call into either the High Road Letterkenny or Main Street Killybegs”Letterkenny Office – 074 91 60550 (Michael)Killybegs Office – 074 97 32055 (Mabel) REVENUE IN DONEGAL TARGET PAYE WORKERS NOT DECLARING HIDDEN INCOME was last modified: October 4th, 2013 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:Michael CollPAYETax Cliniclast_img read more

Article:  What Hath Galileo Wrought?

first_imgFor the PhysicsWeb site, philosopher and historian Robert B. Crease (State U of NY at Stony Brook) wrote a “Critical Point” article called “The Book of Nature.”  He discusses Galileo’s contention that there is a Book of Nature separate from the Book of Scripture that can be investigated on its own through the language of mathematics.  What are the ramifications, and dangers, of this approach?  What impact do metaphors have on assumptions about the nature of science?  (See also the 07/04/2003 entry, “Metaphors bewitch you.”)This well-written and thoughtful short piece needs little comment.  Take a moment to read Dr. Crease’s penetrating analysis of the consequences of ideas that are often taken for granted.  Galileo believed he was helping the church by segregating scientific interpretation from the Bible, but did it lead to a kind of secular priesthood of science?  While we do not endorse his statements entirely, they are worth considering, and you can draw your own conclusions.  It’s interesting that this nearly-theological piece appeared on a site devoted to news about physics.(Visited 22 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

LPG agency worker beaten to death in Rajasthan

first_imgA group of villagers and relatives of a woman allegedly thrashed a man to death suspecting his motives when he entered a house at Lavera Kalan in the Bhopalgarh area of Jodhpur district’s ;ate on Tuesday night. The victim, Rampal Jat, 30, was stated to be an employee of a gas agency.The police have arrested five persons, two of them women. While Rampal’s father, Koja Ram Jat, said in his complaint to the police that his son had gone to the village to attend to a complaint of gas leak, villagers doubted his intentions because there was no one except a woman in the house when he had come.Lavera Kalan village is predominantly inhabited by the nomadic tribal Bawari community. The villagers allegedly attacked Rampal with sticks and other objects and left him to die on the spot. When the police reached the site, he had died.The police have launched an investigation after arresting the five accused — Shravan Ram, Kamal Kishore, Ramprakash, Vimla and Chayati Devi — identified in the FIR. Rampal’s body was handed over to his family after a post-mortem in Mathura Das Mathur Government Hospital in Jodhpur.Senior Congress leader Ashok Gehlot expressed anguish over the incident, which occurred shortly after the alleged lynching of dairy farmer, Rakbar Khan, in Alwar district. “It has once again proved [that] there is no law and order in Rajasthan, as people are taking the law in their hands almost everyday,” he tweeted.last_img read more

Corbin Earns 1st Win with Nationals, beats Giants 4-2

first_imgWASHINGTON — Now this is what the Washington Nationals were looking for when they plunked down $140 million to add Patrick Corbin to the rotation.Corbin took a one-hitter into the eighth inning to earn his first win with Washington, and the Nationals beat the punchless San Francisco Giants 4-2 Thursday in the deciding matchup of a three-game series.Signed to a six-year contract in December after pitching for six seasons in Arizona, Corbin started three games without a decision with his new team. In this one, the Nationals staked him to an early lead that he easily made stand up.“It feels great to get my first win here as a Nat,” the lefty said. “It seemed like every inning I was able to make pitches and get ahead of guys.”Corbin (1-0) struck out nine, walked one and a hit a batter over 7 2/3 innings against a struggling San Francisco offense that came in with a .208 average. The lone hits against the 29-year-old were a fifth-inning double by Evan Longoria and a two-out RBI double by Erik Kratz in the eighth.After Kratz broke up the shutout, Corbin exited to cheers from most of the 26,085 fans at the weekday afternoon game in the nation’s capital.“I still felt strong at the end,” he said.Kyle Barraclough entered and retired pinch-hitter Buster Posey. Sean Doolittle worked the ninth, giving up three hits and a run while earning his second save.The Giants had problems with Corbin’s fastball and the strike zone of plate umpire Ryan Additon. San Francisco manager Bruce Bochy was tossed in the fifth inning and left fielder Brandon Belt was ejected in the seventh after he threw down his helmet in disgust over a called third strike.“I probably said something. It wasn’t very nice,” Belt said.For the Giants, it was an unfortunate case of subtraction by Additon.“As big leaguers we make adjustments. He’s got to do the same thing,” Belt said. “We put too much into this game to have at-bats taken away. That’s a tough pill to swallow.”Asked about the third strike that got him ousted, Belt said, “At no point was it a strike. That’s the tough thing.”Bochy, who was ejected after arguing a fifth-inning called strike on Belt, said, “It was frustrating for some of those hitters. That zone was too big. Belt had no chance.”There were a combined 23 strikeouts in the game, 12 of them called.San Francisco starter Drew Pomeranz (0-2) gave up four runs and six hits in 4 2/3 innings. He struck out seven but walked three.After the Giants went down in order to start the game, Ryan Zimmerman hit a two-out RBI double in the bottom half for a 1-0 lead. San Francisco is the only team in the majors that hasn’t scored in the first and is 6 for 63 (.095) in the inning.In the third, Anthony Rendon extended his career-best hitting streak to 16 games with a two-out double and scored on a double by Juan Soto.Wilmer Difo hit a solo shot in the fourth, and Pomeranz was lifted after issuing a bases-loaded walk in the fifth.By: David Ginsburg, AP Sports WriterTweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more
