Suspected NPA rebels kill Negrense farmer

first_imgHe regarded this as “blatant violations of the Comprehensive Agreement on Respect for Human Rights and International Humanitarian Law.” Rociana suffered multiple wounds from the shooting. Rociana was killed a month after Joelito Hilacio, 49, was also shot dead allegedly by the same perpetrators inside his house in Barangay Carabalan in the same city. BACOLOD City – A farmer was shot to death by nine suspected members of the New People’s Army (NPA) in Sitio Asaran, Barangay Buenavista, Himamaylan City, Negros Occidental. “I also challenge Karapatan, who had been very silent about human rights violations of the NPA, to condemn such terroristic acts if they are not bogus human rights advocates,” he added. “Such savagely cruel acts are proof that these communist insurgents do not respect human rights and are indeed terrorists. These heinous murders should be stopped now,” he said. Pasaporte urged the local government units and other stakeholders in Negros Occidental to condemn the killings.center_img Colonel Inocencio Pasaporte, commander of the 303IB, condemned the murders of Rociana and Hilacio. Last May, soldiers of the 94th Infantry Battalion discovered three NPA hideouts in the village after weeks of combat clearing operation. A report of the Philippine Army’s 303rd Infantry Brigade (303IB) identified the victim as Randy Rociana, 38, a resident of Barangay Mahalang of the southern Negros city. Barangay Buenavista is apparently frequented by communist rebels, who had figured in several encounters with government troops in the area. These are located in Sitio Mabunga, Sitio Bunsad, and Sitio Lower Olitao. (With a report from PNA/PN)last_img read more

PSG reached the European Cup final for the first time in their history by beating Leipzig 3-0 at Estadio da Luz. Goals from Marquinhos, Angel Di Maria and Juan Bernat wrapped up a comfortable victory for the French champions, who can now look forward to a showpiece clash against either Bayern Munich or Lyon on Sunday. Leipzig lost their discipline defensively as they struggled to cope with PSG’s high press and pace in the final third of the pitch, and gave away a total of 24 fouls over the course of the 90 minutes. Tuchel was seen clashing with Behlau shortly after the final whistle, but he attempted to play down the exchange in his post-match interview. The German manager admitted to confronting his Leipzig counterpart Julian Nagelsmann over his tactics, before revealing that the club’s fitness guru attempted to join in their private conversation. “It was between me and Julian,” Tuchel told reporters of the incident. “That is okay between two head coaches but then a third person interfered. “I didn’t like that but it has since been sorted out.” Nagelsmann conceded that Tuchel’s grievances were understandable, while acknowledging the fact that his side had been guilty of several mistimed tackles. “We fouled a lot, you can see that statistically,” the Leipzig head coach said. “That wasn’t planned, we just often came too late into challenges. “He complained because he wanted to protect his players. That’s all normal. “I think we had 34 fouls at the end of the day so you can say something.” Tuchel was delighted to see his team pick up a “deserved” victory against Leipzig, but conceded that Bayern are still the favourites to win this season’s Champions League after their stunning 8-2 quarter-final win over Barcelona.

Special Olympics Fire Truck Pull Cancelled

first_imgLawrenceburg, IN—The Management Team of Special Olympics Indiana – Ripley Ohio Dearborn Counties announces with deep regret and concern the cancellation of our 9th Annual Fire Truck Pull in partnership with the Lawrenceburg Fire Department. After much thought and discussion, the team decided to not host the 2020 fundraiser due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Currently, all Special Olympics’ in-person practices, competitions, events, and social activities at all levels of the organization have been canceled through June 30th.  In these unprecedented times, the team realizes there is no guarantee that all restrictions will be lifted in time for the fundraising event scheduled for August 15th.    “The decision was not easy”, stated Greg Townsend, Program Coordinator of Special Olympics Indiana-Ripley Ohio Dearborn Counties. “Especially since the proceeds generated by the Fire Truck Pull are used to fund our fall and winter activities, if Special Olympics Indiana and Special Olympics International should decide to lift the suspension due to the pandemic”, added Townsend. According to the CDC, people with intellectual disabilities (ID) or developmental disorders are at increased risk of contracting COVID-19. In addition, people with ID experience higher rates of chronic health conditions that also put them at higher risk of serious illness and poorer outcomes from COVID-19. Special Olympics competitions and events are opportunities for entire communities to come together in support of Special Olympics’ vision. But, unfortunately, that joining together poses significant risks for everyone involved.  The Fire Truck Pull, presented by the City of Lawrenceburg, would not be possible without the many volunteers, the Lawrenceburg Fire Department, and sponsors that contribute to putting on such an event each year. The Management Team and the Fire Truck Pull Committee looks forward to the 2021 Fire Truck Pull and hopes to see the return of all Pull Teams and sponsors.last_img read more

Anxious wait for injured Distin

first_img Press Association The French defender was forced off with a hamstring injury at half-time of Sunday’s victory over Manchester United and will definitely miss Saturday’s trip to Southampton. By the weekend Everton hope to be in a position to know the extent of the injury but the worst-case scenario is the season is over for the 36-year-old, who up until the weekend had completed 90 minutes in every one of his previous 31 league starts. Everton centre-back Sylvain Distin faces an anxious 48 hours to find out whether his season has been prematurely ended by injury. center_img “Sylvain had to come off against United on Sunday and he won’t be fit for this weekend,” said manager Roberto Martinez. “It is a little bit too early to know how long he is going to be out. “I do think that over the next 48 hours we will have a clear idea of whether he will be available before the season ends.” With Phil Jagielka still not ready to return from a hamstring injury which has sidelined him since the end of February it leaves Martinez with youngster John Stones, who has impressed deputising for Jagielka, and Antolin Alcaraz – who has played just five times since making his debut in December following an injury-troubled start to life at Goodison Park following after his summer move from Wigan. Jagielka is expected to return next weekend when title-chasers Manchester City visit. Midfielders Steven Pienaar and Darron Gibson (both knee), strikers Arouna Kone (knee) and on-loan Lacina Traore (hamstring) and defender Bryan Oviedo (broken leg) are all still sidelined. last_img read more

Warnock plans busy January sales

first_imgCrystal Palace boss Neil Warnock admits the club must make “two or three” signings in January to boost their chances of Barclays Premier League survival. Palace have won just once in nine games ahead of a crucial Christmas period that includes matches against Manchester City, Southampton and fellow strugglers QPR. Only two points currently separate the Eagles from the bottom three and Warnock believes it will be essential to strengthen the squad when the transfer window opens. “We’ve got to bring players in,” said Warnock, whose side host Stoke on Saturday. “Without knocking our players, they’ve got to be better than we’ve already got and it takes quite a lot of money to do that. “We’ve got some good players so it’s just trying to add two or three players to the squad that we’ve got to give us that bit more in depth. “The substitutes’ bench hasn’t had a lot of players on it for me to change a game so that’s something for the second half of the season, where we can look to influence the game by the substitutes.” Palace have struggled for goals in recent games, scoring just once in their last three league outings. Yannick Bolasie and Wilfried Zaha both impressed during a goalless draw at Tottenham last weekend but the Eagles lack enough cutting edge in the final third to snatch victory. “I think we’ve known all along that we haven’t got that clinical striker,” Warnock said. “I think we’ve scored quite a few goals over the season but they just seem to be in spurts. When we score, we score three. “We’ve got to start putting lesser chances away that would have earned us quite a lot more points.” Defensive midfielder Mile Jedinak is the club’s top scorer in the league this term with five goals, three of which came from the penalty spot. Marouane Chamakh, Dwight Gayle and Fraizer Campbell have all struggled for form while experienced frontman Andrew Johnson has been sidelined with injuries. Damien Delaney could return to the Eagles starting line-up on Saturday. The defender was on the bench for the goalless draw against Tottenham last weekend but is now considered fully fit, having recovered from a calf injury. Midfielder Jason Puncheon will be assessed after missing training on Thursday through illness while Joe Ledley (hip) and Adrian Mariappa (knee) are both ruled out. Stoke manager Mark Hughes will be hoping for more magic from Bojan Krkic as his side attempt to make it back-to-back Premier League wins for the first time this season. The former Barcelona man struggled initially after signing for the Potters in the summer but, since coming back into the team at the end of October, he has got better and better. It was Bojan who stood out as the most influential player on the pitch as Stoke stunned Arsenal last weekend, scoring the second goal in a 3-2 victory. This weekend the Potters head to Palace, and manager Hughes said of Bojan: “Arguably he’s been our best performer since he’s come back in. “He’s worked hard, he’s listened, understood what’s required and when he came back in I knew he was ready. I can’t claim to have known he would perform so well but certainly there was a good chance. “He wasn’t affecting games in the manner we would have liked initially, but that was to be expected. We can’t get too carried away because there is still a lot more to come from him, and that is exciting. “He didn’t come in here in the summer wanting a 12 month contract – he made a big commitment to us, just as we made one to him too. He needed that stability (of a four-year deal) to be effective in the Premier League and for us. “It’s still early days. He’s only had five or six games at the level he needs to be but he’s playing with a smile on his face, his team-mates understand what he can give them and he helps as well with his work ethic – and he’s a good kid.” The heated atmosphere at the Britannia Stadium certainly helped Stoke against Arsenal, but Hughes knows the boot will be on the other foot at Selhurst Park. He said: “It’s a great atmosphere down there. I always found that as a player and it’s not changed since I have been in management. “The last couple of years it seems to have gone up a notch, just as that happened here when this club won promotion. “We get the benefit of it at the Brit and I think that should be encouraged, it’s a great atmosphere to be involved in. They will look to use it to their advantage on Saturday, but we will go down there and enjoy it, and hopefully pick up the result we believe we are capable of.” Hughes looks set to be without defender Marc Muniesa, who tweaked his hamstring against Arsenal, but Jonathan Walters is available despite an ongoing knee problem.

Walter Moore scouting clinic becomes permanent fixture on GFF’s calendar

first_imgWAYNE Forde, president of the Guyana Football Federation (GFF), yesterday announced that the ‘Walter Moore Scouting Clinic’ will become a permanent fixture on the Federation’s calendar.Moore, a former Golden Jaguars defender and his club FF Jaro coach Kristian Heames, conducted a two-day (May 19 – 21) talent identification programme, which will result in potential players being identified for trials and possible professional contracts in Europe.This initiative is part of the new philosophy of the technical programme of the GFF, which actively seeks to involve past and present national players as part of the technical development programme.“The Walter Moore scouting clinic will now become a permanent fixture on the GFF’s calendar and the GFF will fund it exclusively” Forde told Chronicle Sport in an exclusive interview yesterday.“Of course we will always use our network to see if we could bring in some sponsors, so what we will do over the next couple of months, the technical department and Walter will build the best model to see how this would work,” Forde noted.The GFF top brass explained that “players in the past didn’t see any long term in the sport that they had given so much to and I think that if there’s anything that you want to do as a leader it should be to inspire hope and that’s one of the things we’ve been doing, not only as an executive committee but as a technical staff.”Forde also reasoned “if you’re a player and you see a structure curriculum where you have players knowledgeable and experience like ‘Jackie Chan’ (Gregory Richardson); Walter Moore returning with his coach from Finland, you’re seeing tangible evidence of development; that’s what we’re giving to this nation and so if that’s the added incentive that they needed all along for them (the players) to put that extra 100%, it’s very encouraging for Guyana’ football.”Heames impressedBefore taking up a post as coach with FF Jaro last year, Heames from July 2008 to July 2016, served as Scout with English Premiere League club,West Bromwich Albion F.C.,also known as West Brom.It was Heames’ maiden journey to the South American country, and the Englishman said that he was impressed with the level and quality displayed by the players who are all apart of Guyana’s National U-17 programme.“The overall level is really good, working with the players, getting to see them both on and off the field was pretty good” Heames said, while singling out Chris Macy, Job Caesar, Cecil Jackman and Orville Daniels as those who stood out.Heames reasoned that “players from different environment have different strengths and athletically players here are better than many players in Europe but I would say that it’s their understanding of the game that needs to be worked on.”“After speaking to the technical department, I’ve gotten a better understanding as to how Guyana’s football was structured previously,so that might be the case why players developed a lot of individual skills, may be they don’t have the access to the coaching and I like the fact that some of the things that are done here (at the GFF) is to bridge that gap” Heames opined.Heames’ sentiments were echoed by the GFF’s Technical Director,Ian Greenwood, who said “we’ve got fantastic athletic ability, but that game understanding is a massive problem from what I first arrived but we’re looking to improve that now. We’ve got a playing philosophy where the work is structured through the academy training centres, so the amount of tactical work now with the national programme is vastly improving from what we would’ve had before.” – Heames impressed with quality of playerslast_img read more

Joshua promoter defends Saudi fightas game changer for boxing

first_imgLONDON (Reuters) – Anthony Joshua’s promoter has defended a decision to stage the Briton’s heavyweight title rematch with Mexican-American world champion Andy Ruiz Jr. in Saudi Arabia and said it could change boxing forever.Eddie Hearn told a news conference on Monday that Joshua and his opponent had signed up for the Dec. 7 fight to be hosted in an open-air stadium in Ad Diriyha, near the Saudi capital Riyadh.The choice of venue has been criticised in some quarters, with Saudi Arabia coming under heightened international criticism over its human rights record.Previously unbeaten Joshua lost his IBF, WBA and WBO titles to Ruiz at New York’s Madison Square Garden on June 1, with a rematch in the contract. “We had approaches from Saudi Arabia, from Dubai, from Qatar, from Abu Dhabi,” said Hearn of the rematch. “And there’s been numerous conversations in the past about staging events in that region.“We have to realise that there is another world out there outside of Cardiff and Madison Square Garden, and we have an obligation to grow the sport of boxing to new areas and regions,” he added.“This event could change boxing forever. If Saudi Arabia are going to invest in these kind of fights, with the population that they have and the potential to grow the sport, you could be seeing a big change in the dynamics of the sport.” Amnesty International UK’s head of campaigns Felix Jakens said the fight was “likely to be yet another opportunity for the Saudi authorities to try to ‘sportswash’ their severely tarnished image”.“As with other sporting stars going to Saudi Arabia, we’d call on Joshua to inform himself of the human rights situation and be prepared to speak out,” he added. Hearn cited a list of international sporting events hosted by Saudi Arabia in recent years, including the all-electric Formula E motor racing series, European Tour golf, the Italian Super Cup, boxing and WWE wrestling.The country recently announced it will host in 2020 the world’s richest horse race, with a purse of $20 million.“This is such a huge occasion for boxing, an iconic moment,” said Hearn. “With the response that we’ve seen, mainly good and some negative, I guarantee you with curiosity the whole world will be watching this fight.” The BBC reported Saudi backers were paying a $40 million site fee.last_img read more
