Leadership style set up Daley for St James FA presidency

first_imgWESTERN BUREAU:GREGORY DALEY says his all-inclusive approach contributed to the overwhelming manner in which he was returned as president of the St James Football Association.Daley was returned at Monday night’s election of officers, sending challenger Orville Powell to a crushing 82-16 loss.”The outcome here tonight speaks for itself. I believe that most of the things my challenger sought to address are all valid. However, it has to be about the approach. I choose to incorporate the clubs in my decision-making, and that is why the affiliates have given me another term to lead,” said Daley.”We try to make them part of the process of change. We understand the culture they work under and help each club, administratively, to become a lot more professional in their set-up and their development, and I believe that they appreciate how we deal with things,” he added.Daley noted infrastructural development and upkeep, coaching, refereeing, discipline of players on and off the field as important areas that will be getting major attention.”We must come to understand what is the best way to reach these clubs, all of which, attract players, mainly from inner-city communities. So for us to get the best out of them it cannot be an ‘I said so, so it must be done’ approach,” Daley said in a clear reference to Powell’s perceived style of leadership.It is the second time in nearly four months that the Montego Bay United owner was losing a football-related election.FAILED BIDPowell failed in his bid to garner enough affiliate support in his move to challenge Jamaica Football Federation President Captain Horace Burrell, in November 2015.The tempestuous St James FA election of officers brought out a well-known secret that Powell was a man not afraid of speaking his mind, and he wasted little opportunity in letting the nearly 100 affiliate members hear his voice, calling into question the constitutionality of how things panned out.Bruce Gaynor, the outgoing general secretary came in for special attention from a heated Powell, who slammed his approach to how the night’s activity was to go down, but by time the votes were cast, a dejected Powell quietly left the Montego Bay Cricket Club, which hosted the night’s affair.Powell’s impressive slate of candidates included former national goalkeeper Donovan Ricketts, Sandra Christie, Germaine Spencer, Edmund Sherriff and Kenneth Watson.last_img read more

2 charged with murder of Triumph teen

first_imgLess than a week after young Devanand Sanichar, 13, was beaten to death, two men will be making a court appearance today after the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) advised that they be charged with the capital offence.The police had initially arrested three persons; however, Crime Chief (Ag) Hugh Jessemy told Guyana Times on Thursday that detectives had approached the DPP and were advised to institute charges against two suspects.“So two persons will be going to court for the boy’s murder,” he stated.The two accused have been identified as Kevin Sahai, 20, and Raymond Wong, 27, both of the Triumph, East Coast Demerara.Sanichar of Lot 83-84 Plantain Walk West Half, Beterverwagting, ECD, was at a wedding with his family a few houses from his home when the incident occurred sometime around 23:30h on Sunday.It was reported that the teenager got into a fight with a group of men over a young lady and left the wedding house. He later returned with a cutlass when another argument ensued, during which one of the men relived him of the weapon and dealt him a chop to the head. Sanichar reportedly fell and was severely beaten with pieces of wood by several persons.The post-mortem examination on Sanichar’s body will be conducted today.On Monday, when this newspaper visited the home of the dead youth, his distraught mother Sukhdai Sanichar related that the prime suspect (Kevin) was a friend of her now dead son.“He come and call for meh son on Sunday…he did drunk, drunk…so I tell he that meh son wasn’t at home. We went at the wedding house and the same boy come to meh son and tell he to reach he outside,” the mother stated.She noted that her son left the wedding house and after a short while, she recalled her brother-in-law waving to her from the gate and she suspected something was amiss. The woman said as she reached the gate, she was told that her son was lying on the roadway in a pool of blood.In tears, Sanichar recounted that she ran to the area where her son was lying and attempted to hold him but was told that he was dead and she could not touch the body. “He had a chop pon he head and like a nail mark to he neck… blood went all ova,” she recalled.However, the family later received information that another friend of the now deadboy was among the gang that beat and killed him.last_img read more

Parents join teachers’ strike in Linden

first_imgParents, guardians and students joined scores of teachers as they continued their strike action in Linden, Region 10 (Upper Demerara-Berbice) on Thursday — the fourth day of countrywide protests for salary increases.The protestors took to the streets of Linden in a march which commenced on the Wismar shore and concluded at Republic Avenue in Mackenzie.Holding placards and chanting, they settled at the Linden-Georgetown Minibus Park, where parents and teachers shared their opinions regarding the strike.Teachers had planned to agitate in front of the Education Ministry in Georgetown on Friday, but Guyana Teachers Union (GTU) General Council Representative for Region 10, Ferdinand McLeod, said the team was at the time awaiting word on the outcome regarding conciliation talks before coming to a decision. He noted that teachers will, however, assemble in continuation of the strike on Friday morning.“Today was parents and guardians day. Right here in Region 10, along with ourA teacher holding a placard at the protest line on Thursdayteachers…they were all out here, showing their support (for) teachers…I am hoping that if the Government decides to make a proposal, it is a favourable one. And if it is not favourable, well then we will have to go straight to arbitration. But I just want this to finish, and at the end of it, let us all go back to school”, he said.McLeod noted, however, that teachers plan to go back to school on Monday regardless of the outcome, but he stressed that in the end he wishes that teachers gain the respect they deserve.He told teachers, parents and guardians that whatever the outcome of Thursday’s meeting, teachers and students need to return to school on Monday, agreeing to the Terms of Resumption.He told teachers that according to the terms, their salaries should not be cut, nor should any teacher be demoted. McLeod said that should anything otherwise occur, the Union is ready to support teachers.“According to what happens at the meeting this afternoon, we’re going to know what is going to happen tomorrow; because we had planned to go to Georgetown. So, depending on the outcome of the meeting, we will know what will happen. (It’s) more than likely we’re going back to school on Monday, because conciliation or arbitration, we will go back to school… It’s not that we want to be here, but theyA group of teachers and parents assemble after the marchhave to start respecting teachers.“So I do hope that after this, people start looking at us differently; start looking at us as indeed the moulders that we are; start looking at us as the ones who built every other profession that there is…,” he told this publication afterwards.The GTU Representative also called for better treatment of teachers by Education Officers, as well as for zero victimisation following strike action.last_img read more

 

Time to address loopholes in CSME – Caricom leaders

first_imgBy Vahnu ManickchandIn light of the recent bout of tension between Jamaica and Trinidad and Tobago over trade issues, the Heads ofGovernment Ministers and other officalsthe two countries have declared their commitment to the Caribbean Community (Caricom) and more specifically its integrated development strategy – Caricom Single Market and Economy (CSME), while pressing for much focus to be placed on the initiative to make it more effective and efficient for people in the Caribbean.Delivering remarks at the opening of the 37th Meeting of the Conference of the Heads of Government of the Caribbean Community, which got underway on Monday in Guyana, Prime Minister Andrew Holness pointed out that Jamaica has always been supportive of CSME and undertaken the necessary reforms including changes to its legislation.He said Jamaica now provides a strong, transparent and predictable regulatory environment for those who wish to relocate there for working purposes, noting that this is an integrated pillar for the integration process.“For many, including the man-in-the-street, free movement represents a tangible in which he can benefit from tangibly,” he posited. However, the Jamaican Prime Minister noted that there have been increasing cases of Jamaicans being denied entry and questionable treatment at ports across the region. This, he said, must be urgently addressed in a meaningful way, otherwise, the economic sense of Caricom will be questioned.To this end, Holness disclosed that this matter is being discussed bilaterally and he is encouraged by the responsiveness of the concerns.“We believe that bilateral consultations supported by additional effort in the institution of our community and make the movement of labour equal to that of the movement of goods – a reality that would extend the progress and benefit of the integration effort.”The Jamaican Head of State observed that the region has been lacking in its efforts to strengthen bilateral relations with each other. In this regard, he announced that Jamaica is currently working with Trinidad to establish a joint commission agreement with the aim of developing a mutually beneficial cooperation programme. Similar initiatives will be undertaken with other Member States, the Prime Ministersaid.He further explained that regional integration is not an end in itself but a means to achieving a much broader objective, that is, the economic growth and development of Caribbean countries and the improvement of the lives of its people: “It should allow small economies like ours to overcome regional constraints, build our resilience, and take advantage of new and existing opportunities in the global market place.”Regionally, Holness emphasised that while integration processes like the CSME can deliver economic gains, it must be mindful that CSME as a mere concept cannot deliver these promises. He stressed that as a functional and transformative integration process, CSME can deliver the much needed economic dividends to our citizens.Prime Minister Holness’ sentiments were adopted by Prime Minister of Trinidad Dr Keith Rowley, who in his remarks, requested that integrated development strategy be put on the front burner of discussions during the conference.Rowley outlined that the Region must take ownership of the challenges and opportunities facing the Caribbean and view them as critically matters to be addressed.“In this vain, Trinidad and Tobago has requested that the Caricom put the Single Market and Economy back on the agenda and the deliberations and decision-making should focus on that aspect,” he stressed.The Heads of Government will have a packed agenda for business sessions, today and Wednesday. Some of the major highlights include: regional security, CSME, Border Issues, Correspondent Banking (De-risking), Caricom-Cuba Relations, among other issues in the region.last_img read more

 

Monaco winless in four after Toulouse draw

first_imgWith captain Radamel Falcao out with illness and the Colombian’s fellow attackers Stevan Jovetic, Rony Lopes and Aleksandr Golovin all injured, Monaco started with 18-year-old Moussa Sylla up front at the Stadium de Toulouse.“The players have given the maximum,” said Jardim. “Absences? I don’t complain about the absences. We are here to help the youngsters progress.”Monaco will now be hoping that their big guns can return in time for Tuesday’s Champions League opener against Atletico Madrid at the Stade Louis II.“For Tuesday against Atletico Madrid we’ll need to keep this attitude and this behaviour, but be better technically,” Portuguese coach Jardim added.They did take a 57th-minute lead as Belgian international Youri Tielemans hammered a left-footed strike in off the crossbar from the edge of the box, but Toulouse deservedly took a point.Leya Iseka, the younger brother of Belgium and Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi, picked out the bottom corner in the 79th minute to score his first goal for the club since joining from Anderlecht in June.The 20-year-old had impressed on loan at Zulte Waregem last season, scoring six goals in the Belgian top flight.Monaco never threatened a winner, managing just two shots on target in the match.– Lyon held by nine-man Caen –Lyon needed a late goal from Ferland Mendy to draw with Caen © AFP / CHARLY TRIBALLEAUEarlier in the day, Ferland Mendy’s late equaliser salvaged Lyon a 2-2 draw at nine-man Caen as they also failed to improve on their own stuttering start to the campaign.Lyon, who finished third last term, visit Manchester City in the Champions League on Wednesday after picking up just seven points from the first five league games of the campaign.“I am more than disappointed… I am very disappointed, very angry,” said Lyon coach Bruno Genesio.“We managed to lead at half-time, which wasn’t a miracle, but wasn’t far off, but we weren’t able to further raise our level in the second half.”Genesio’s men took the lead before half-time as Caen goalkeeper Brice Samba allowed a Nabil Fekir free-kick to sail into the middle of his net.But Claudio Beauvue, who is on loan at Caen from Lyon, levelled early in the second half from the penalty spot, before the hosts were reduced to 10 men when Aleksander Djiku was sent off for a high tackle on Fekir in the 55th minute.Caen continued to put Lyon under pressure despite their numerical disadvantage, and they forged ahead 17 minutes from time as Prince Oniangue nodded in Faycal Fajr’s free-kick.Full-back Mendy cut inside to curl home another effort that Samba should have saved in the 88th minute to ensure that Lyon at least took a point from the Stade Michel d’Ornano.Caen found themselves down to nine in the dying stages as defender Baissama Sankoh was red-carded for head-butting former Manchester United right-back Rafael, but they held on to extend their unbeaten run to four matches.Elsewhere, Lille moved up to second in the table as a hat-trick from Nicolas Pepe, including two penalties, helped them win 3-2 at Amiens.But they are still five points adrift of reigning champions Paris Saint-Germain, who warmed up for Tuesday’s Champions League clash with Liverpool at Anfield by seeing off Saint-Etienne 4-0 on Friday.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Monaco have now failed to win in four league matches © AFP / PASCAL PAVANIPARIS, France, Sep 16 – Monaco’s dreadful start to the Ligue 1 season continued on Saturday as Aaron Leya Iseka’s late goal grabbed Toulouse a 1-1 draw.After a 3-1 win at Nantes in their opener, Leonardo Jardim’s principality outfit have now gone four league matches without a win and sit 15th in the early table on just five points.last_img read more

Kyle comes from a long family of golfers with his father, grandfather, and great grandfather all having played golf in North West Golf Club in Lisfannon.Kyle’s parents got him his first golf club when he was only two.“But Kyle had no interest in golf until he was about 13, he always played football for Inishowen but decided to give it up and got a great interest in golf,” said proud mum Roisin.“He is 18 years old now and has a handicap of +1, which he has strived to get to for a long time.” And she insisted: “Kyle and the rest of us are now hoping for a Donegal treble this weekend…wins for the Minors and Seniors at Croke Park would be fantastic!”Kyle has won quiet a few competitions in his short career but this was his first big one, he won the 2014 Irish Amateur Golf Championship in Ardglass Co Down.Said Roisin: “Rory McIlroy won this title in 2004, Graeme McDowell won it in 1999 and 2000, to name a few, so Kyle is delighted to be getting his name alongside them.”Kyle is having a great week because last Saturday in NWGC while playing in president’s prize, Kyle carded a Hole in One at the 2nd hole, a par 4 hole..360 yds, this has never been done there before so he caused quite a stir in north west for that.Kyle played last year for the Ulster Team at the Interprovencial golf championship in Cork.

Parents explore cross-border care options for Donegal’s most fragile children

first_imgOur Children’s Voice, a Donegal-based parent group, visited Stormont Castle last week to explore cross-border options for Donegal families with children who have life-limiting conditions or high medical/physical needs.The group’s representatives, Gina Grant and Ashling Nibbs, were invited to Belfast on Friday 23rd July to meet with Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams, leader of Sinn Féin in Northern Ireland Michelle O’Neill and Donegal Senator Pádraig Mac Lochlainn.Gina and Ashling spoke with the leaders to express the need for paediatric palliative and respite care and oncology services for children across Ireland. They sought to explore options for shared services across the border. Gina told Donegal Daily how Our Children’s Voice aims to get Ireland’s leaders to pay heed to the current plight of parents in Donegal.“We had been trying over the past three years, through meeting with LUH, the HSE and the HSE forum, but we need the leaders to lead if we can get any change.”The parents highlighted how Donegal was “geographically orphaned” to the rest of Ireland, which impacts on the care of the most fragile children. “We’re travelling from three to five hours to Dublin for appointments. In some cases, the children have had to be admitted to hospital because the journeys were too much for them.“One child had to be resuscitated at the side of the road and rushed to hospital in the North for treatment.“I’ve known families who have had to have a two week hospital stay after a journey to Dublin has taken so much out of them.”Our Children’s Voice has been calling for doctors to hold clinics in Letterkenny to provide neurology, respiratory, genetic, gastro care for children. Now, they are focusing their efforts on shared services with Northern Ireland. Gina said the group had promising news last December when former Taoiseach Enda Kenny and Health Minister Simon Harris told them the availability of cross-border services should not be a problem, but nothing has happened since.A series of cross-party meetings at Leinster House in May led the parents to arrange another discussion in Stormont this week. “We were very pleased to be invited to meet Michelle because she has passion for children’s palliative care. She was very keen on what she could do to benefit children on both sides of the border. She understands the difficulty of bringing children to Dublin,” Gina said.Our Children’s Voice represents 30 families in Donegal, while no database exists to show how many children have high complex needs or require palliative care. “We wanted to get best quality of life that our children can have in their local community and with the family that they are reared in.“We want to be the best parents to all our children, and that can only be accessible through cross border care at this point. “One of our families look out from their home to Altnagelvin Hospital. They could be there in 20 minutes but they have to travel five hours to Dublin.“Some parents have not attended appointments because their child has been having a ‘good week’ and they know if they do this trip their children would have to regress.“There is a beautiful oncology in Altnagelvin but it is not open to paediatrics. We need to start affording the children with the same services we’re affording the adults,” she said.Our Children’s Voice spoke to Adams, MacLochlainn and O’Neill about the possibility of getting training services in Altnagelvin for nurses in the hope that full respite could be provided in homes in Donegal. They also asked how local families could benefit from clinics in Northern Ireland and what communities could do together for respite care and hospices.“We need to see if we could break down our barriers and not have to pass Altnagelvin and go to Dublin. “We need all parties working together and all politicians on both sides of the border to fight for our cause.“We also want other parents to get in contact with us. The more we know what’s needed the more we can get,” Gina said.Parents can contact Our Children’s Voice on Facebook: www.facebook.com/OCVDonegalEmail: ourchildrensvoice@gmail.comParents explore cross-border care options for Donegal’s most fragile children was last modified: June 27th, 2017 by Rachel McLaughlinShare 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:children’s caregina granthealthour children’s voiceStormontlast_img read more
