  • BCB and Albion Cricket Club hold cordial discussions on future of Berbice Cricket

    first_img– Butcher Fund donates clocks to Police ‘B’ Division.BERBICE Cricket Board (BCB) president, Hilbert Foster, last Thursday, led a seven-member delegation to visit the Albion Sports Complex on an invitation from the president and Executives of the Albion Community Centre Cricket Club (ACCCC).The Albion Club had requested the meeting despite the pandemic crisis to discuss Berbice cricket development and seek answers to several concerns of theirs. The President, as part of his meet-the- clubs programme, readily agreed to the meeting within seventy-two hours.Since his election to the Presidency, the BCB leader has visited the majority of clubs in the county to listen to their concerns and recommendations.The BCB president was accompanied by Secretary, Angela Haniff; Treasurer– Dr. Cecil Beharry; Assistant Secretary, Ameer Rahaman; Assistant Treasurer, Rovin Bahadur; Public Relations Officer, Simon Naidu, and Executive Member– Mr. Edwards. The Albion Club president, Mr. Vemen Walter, thanked the BCB for agreeing to the meeting and congratulated the executives on the great job they are doing on and off the cricket field.Among the topics   discussed were the  immediate plans for Berbice Cricket, developmental programmes, relationship with the Guyana Cricket Board (GCB), the ongoing BCB/RHTYSC programmes, functioning of BCB sub committees and representation of players at that national level.Walter expressed some concern at the BCB involvement in several legal matters and stated that Berbice needs proper representations on the GCB as decisions were taken about Guyana Cricket without any input from the county.Foster explained that the legal actions were about restoring democracy to Guyana’s Cricket and making sure that cricket development is for all Guyanese and not a selected few.He committed to having an Albion executive in the BCB official delegation whenever it meets with Sports Minister, Charles Ramson Jnr.Foster committed himself to work along with the Government of Guyana to develop the game and to work hard to return regional and international cricket to the Albion Ground, where the first ODI in the Caribbean was played in 1977 against Pakistan.He admitted that it was unlikely that any cricket would be played for the rest of the year, but stated that efforts would be made to conduct developmental programmes off the cricket field.The BCB delegation also provided answers to the ACCC on the Basil Butcher Trust Fund, Covid-19 response project, sponsorship after the COVID-19 pandemic and the work of the board’s four sub committees. Foster disclosed that the BCB was trying to establish a working relationship with some regional cricket boards in its ongoing development effort and arrangements are being put in place for coaching of youths using the internet.He also disclosed that numerous changes would have to be made in Berbice Cricket, including the reduction of cash prizes for finals and the attendance of spectators at matches.Both delegations agreed to meet in the future and Walters pledged Albion support towards the development of the game. The BCB delegation also handed over a donation of stationery, clocks, cleaning detergent and a warm-up football to the ACCCC.Meanwhile, the joint BCB/RHTYSC Basil Butcher Trust Fund, last Wednesday, handed over twenty clocks to the Management of the Guyana Police Force ‘B’ Division.Public Relations Officer of the BCB and RHTYSC, Vice President Mark Papannah handed over the donation to ‘B’ Division Traffic Chief, Mr. Williams. Under the Fund, a total of $250,000.00 worth of clocks would be shared out to public institutions across Berbice including schools, churches, fire stations and post offices.last_img read more

Tags: boys lacrosseJ-EMarcellusskaneatelesWest GeneseeWesthill All through Saturday afternoon, a quartet of area high school boys lacrosse teams made their way into three different Section III playoff brackets, and none of them had any real trouble moving forward.In one instance, it involved two local sides meeting in the Class D quarterfinals, but it turned into a runaway for Marcellus, the no. 3 seed, who ousted no. 6 seed Jordan-Elbridge by a score of 20-5.Though the first half didn’t feature any outrageous outbursts, the Mustangs steadily built a 9-1 advantage on the Eagles, and kept pulling further away as seven different players had multiple goals. Also in Class D, top seed and state no. 1-ranked Skaneateles toyed with Vernon-Verona-Sherrill, winning 27-5 over the Red Devils as it advanced to Tuesday’s semifinal against no. 4 seed LaFayette, who ousted Tully 24-10.Attacking and converting at will on VVS, Skaneateles had 11 goals in the first period and 10 more in the second quarter, allowing everyone in the lineup to see significant playing time.Evan Brunelle set a career mark with six goals, adding two assists.

  • Young defensive line unrelenting despite losing Cooper, Ware

    first_imgCHAPEL HILL, N.C. — Wisconsin’s defensive line was already thin heading into its match-up against North Carolina, but things took a turn for the worse for the Badgers. Already without Justin Ostrowski, and playing without Kurt Ware — who contracted chicken pox just prior to the UNC game — Wisconsin lost another key member of its young defensive line when defensive end Jamal Cooper went down in the second quarter Saturday night.Though it’s too early to determine the extent of Cooper’s injury, initial indications look bleak as the sophomore limped off the field after the game on crutches, following what head coach Barry Alvarez classified as an ACL injury. “[Defensive line coach John Palermo], didn’t have the luxury of rolling them today, because we didn’t have enough guys to role,” Alvarez said. Prior to his untime injury, Cooper was giving the Tar Heel offensive line fits, especially true freshman Garrett Reynolds. In less than two quarters of action, Cooper picked up a pair of tackles for losses, including a devastating sack on North Carolina quarterback Matt Baker that sent the senior flailing from the whiplash.”I thought Cooper was playing really well, he made a couple of nice plays early on,” defensive coordinator Bret Bielema said, his voice nearly gone from the game. “We were already a little thin at that position so we were going to Plan A, to Plan B, it kind of reminded me of the Purdue game (last season).”As it turned out, Plan B was quite fruitful for the Badgers. With Cooper and Ware both on the mend, Wisconsin turned to true freshman Matt Schaughnessy to pick up the pass rushing slack. And Schaughnessy didn’t disappoint.The true freshman, bouncing back and forth from both ends of the defensive line, was a disruptive force throughout the game, compiling 1.5 tackles for loss and a half a sack. It was also Schaughnessy who, along with sam linebacker LaMarr Watkins, knocked Baker out of the game following a sandwich hit on the quarterback. “Matt Schaughnessy just keeps really coming along and the things that he does, for a young kid, he’s really into it, he’s focused,” Bielema said. “I can’t say enough good things about him, he keeps getting better every day.””We always talk about everyone who goes in, keeping the same level. So I just tried to keep the same level,” Schaughnessy said of his goals after Cooper’s injury.After Cooper’s injury, Wisconsin was forced to employ a short rotation consisting mostly of Schaughnessy, Joe Monty, Nick Hayden and Jason Chapman, all of whom finished the game with at least half a sack, with Brandon Kelly and Mike Newkirk seeing some spot duty. Still, despite the hardship, Bielema believes his team is showing steady improvement to go along with its limitless potential.”Where they were at the Bowling Green game, coming off that field, to where they are right now, they’ve made gigantic steps, but it’s no where close to being as good as they can be,” Bielema said.Stocco and Williams getting in rhythm: As has been the norm for the first two games of the season, junior quarterback John Stocco and senior receiver Brandon Williams appear to be creating quite a rapport with each other.”I think just having played that much together, him and I, and really working hard this summer and throughout camp we’re starting to feel like we’re on the same page,” Stocco said. “I know where he’s going to be and I know he’s gong to make big plays for us so I just try to get him the ball.”Williams was the recipient of Stocco’s first three completions, including a pair of double-digit yardage completions on Wisconsin’s second drive of the game. Williams was also the only player, other than the multi-talented Brian Calhoun, to gain any yardage on the Badger’s third drive of the game, a 45-yard march that gave UW a 7-0 lead.”I think we’re coming along pretty well,” Williams said. “When we look at game plans, we focus on who can be open more and it just happened that I was getting a lot of single coverages early in the game, so early on he came to me a lot. But that’s just what you’ve got to do, take what the defense gives you.”Williams finished the game leading all Wisconsin receivers with five receptions for 62 yards. The senior also fielded three punts for another 30 yards.last_img read more

  • Zoombombings interrupt online classes

    first_imgThough Askar was initially unbothered by the Zoom interrupter using his name, he later became concerned about whether the hacker had access to his private information, especially with recent concerns regarding Zoom’s privacy policy among the public.  “It’s going to get way worse before it gets better,” Askar said. “It would be very irresponsible for the school to just assume we’re going to have [in-person] fall classes and that ‘Oh, we can just go another month with Zoom, we’ll survive, we’ll kind of straggle along, limp to the finish line.’” When USC sent a communitywide email last month after outsiders hijacked two Zoom classes in the Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences and the Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism, faculty and students did not expect their virtual classes to continue being interrupted.  “Professors should do his or her best to make sure that the class is secure, and also the University and also the company,” Dekle said. “If it is password protected, [students] shouldn’t give away passwords to friends or they shouldn’t email the link to friends or their acquaintances. They need to take ownership, too, of maintaining security — it’s not just their issue, but it’s the issue for the common good of everyone taking the class.”  Askar said that while Zoom might work in the short term, he thinks USC should find a more secure and reliable platform to use should classes remain remote through the fall. After a back and forth with the hacker and attempting to convince the professor that he was the real student, Askar said the interloper eventually left but not before insulting him.  Fifteen minutes into the class, Askar heard a student briefly disrupt the class by murmuring a question. When the professor asked for the student to repeat the question, Askar was confused to hear that the professor was talking to him. Noticing that the hacker was using his name, Askar urged his professor to remove the individual from the classroom.   Wimpfheimer, another student who witnessed a Zoombombing incident, said her Latinx classmate was targeted by three Zoom perpetrators, who directed slurs at them. The hackers also used slurs aimed at the LGBTQ community, played pornographic audio and seemed to be playing video games in the background.  But days later, a Zoom hacker impersonated Emad Askar, a junior majoring in public policy, during his “Public Policy and Law” class. Three hackers also entered Juliette Wimpfheimer’s “Principles of Microeconomics” class. Robert Dekle, Wimpfheimer’s “Principles of Microeconomics” professor, said he believes this experience made the University, faculty and students aware that the platform can be easily hacked and has thus led to stricter security measures. However, he advised everyone — including students, faculty and the University — to be vigilant to prevent future Zoombombings. After continued interruptions, the teaching assistant for Wimpfheimer’s class eventually removed the hackers from the class, although it took a while to do so, Wimpfheimer said.  “I started thinking ‘How did they know? Are they going to follow me into other classes? … Do they have private information about me?’” Askar said. “That’s my primary worry, as well as Zoom itself having an incredible amount of access to our private information … I just think we kind of rushed to using this service without really knowing the capabilities and the faults of it.” “The measures that we have taken to require authenticating in with your USC credentials eliminate the vast majority of the opportunities for Zoombombing,” Chief Information Officer Douglas Shook wrote in an email to the Daily Trojan. “We are encouraging instructors to be very judicious regarding admitting anyone from the waiting room unless they have invited guests to class.” Dekle said that while the new measures would shorten class time, the enhanced security was worth the tradeoff.  “Many students don’t come in through the USC [email system] — they’re in the waiting room, so it’s going to take time for the TA to go over one by one,” Dekle said. “It might slow the opening of the class a little bit, but security is important.” USC plans to continue to use Zoom for remote classes, Shook confirmed in a statement to the Daily Trojan, and is confident in the platform’s use for virtual instruction but expects Zoom to enhance security measures.  These are just two of several Zoombombings that have taken place after the University asked professors to enact security measures, such as logging in through a USC account and adding waiting rooms and passwords. Other universities, such as Arizona State University, have faced similar issues with Zoombombers gaining access to classes and causing disruption. In addition to its security issues, the company is also facing a lawsuit in California for sending data to Facebook without being transparent about it in its privacy policy.  In response to the interruptions, the University enacted additional security measures for Zoom calls, such as having professors provide a password with the class meeting link or use the waiting room feature and approve each student to join the class. The New York City Department of Education banned the use of Zoom for its classes Friday due to concerns about the platform’s security, citing instances of Zoombombing at K-12 schools. The decision followed an FBI warning last week regarding the influx of interlopers on the video-teleconferencing platform. Privacy concerns with the program also include Zoom sharing data to Facebook even of those who are not users of the social media platform, NPR reported. Additionally, flaws in Zoom’s software enable hackers to access a user’s webcam or microphone. According to the company, these issues have since been resolved.  Following the first Zoombombing disturbances, USC condemned the interruptions and assured new Zoom safeguards in a Universitywide email from President Carol Folt and Provost Charles Zukoski sent March 24. “Students will be contacted by their instructors with new protocols to prevent this type of disruption and disturbance while attending classes online,” the email read. “We will be vigilant in determining who was responsible for these actions, and we are doing everything in our power to stop it right away.” Amid concerns of Zoom’s security, schools have banned the platform. USC will continue to hold classes on Zoom with enhanced safeguarding.(Vincent Leo | Daily Trojan) After the class interruptions, USC added a page about Zoombombing to its course continuity website, recommending students who have encountered attacks targeting protected groups report the incident to the Title IX Office. Staff and faculty who experience an attack against a protected class can notify the Office of Equity and Diversity.last_img read more

  • Hernandez charged with murder, cut by Patriots

    first_imgFormer New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez, left, stands with his attorney Michael Fee, right, during arraignment in Attleboro District Court Wednesday, June 26, in Attleboro, Mass. (AP Photo/The Sun Chronicle, Mike George, Pool) Less than two hours after the arrest, the Patriots announced they had cut Hernandez, a 2011 Pro Bowl selection who signed a five-year contract worth $40 million last summer.Lloyd was a 27-year-old athlete with the Boston Bandits who was dating the sister of Hernandez’s fiancee. He was shot repeatedly in the back and chest, authorities said.Hernandez could get life without parole if convicted.“It is at bottom a circumstantial case. It is not a strong case,” his attorney, Michael Fee, said at a court hearing during which Hernandez was ordered held without bail on murder charges and five weapons counts.Lloyd’s family members cried and hugged in the courtroom as prosecutor Bill McCauley outlined the killing. Two relatives were so overcome with emotion that they had to leave the courtroom.McCauley said the crime stemmed from a night out at a Boston club called Rumor on June 14. He said Hernandez was upset about certain things, including that Lloyd had talked to some people Hernandez “had troubles with.”Two days later, McCauley said, on the night of June 16, Hernandez texted two friends from out of state and asked them to hurry back to Massachusetts.Surveillance footage from outside Hernandez’s home showed him leaving with a gun, and he told someone in the house that he was upset and couldn’t trust anyone anymore, the prosecutor said.The three men picked up Lloyd at his home around 2:30 a.m., according to authorities. As they drove around, they discussed what happened at the nightclub, and Lloyd started getting nervous, McCauley said.Lloyd texted his sister, “Did you see who I am with?” When she asked who, he answered, at 3:22 a.m., “NFL,” then, a minute later, “Just so you know.”Within a few minutes after that, people working the overnight shift at the industrial park reported hearing gunshots, McCauley said.Investigators did not specify who fired the shots and did not identify the two other people who were with Hernandez.In arguing unsuccessfully for bail, Hernandez’s attorney said the athlete is unlikely to flee, is a homeowner, and lives with his fiancee and an 8-month-old baby. He also said Hernandez had never been accused of a violent crime.As he was led from his home in the morning, Hernandez was wearing a white V-neck T-shirt, with his arms inside the shirt and behind his back. He spit into some bushes on his way to a police cruiser.Later, as he was taken from the North Attleborough police station to court, two dozen supporters cheered, some yelling, “We love you Aaron!”“Words cannot express the disappointment we feel knowing that one of our players was arrested as a result of this investigation,” the Patriots said in a statement announcing he had been cut.The team added: “We realize that law enforcement investigations into this matter are ongoing. We support their efforts and respect the process. At this time, we believe this transaction is simply the right thing to do.”The Patriots drafted Hernandez, who is originally from Bristol, Conn., in 2010 out of the University of Florida, where he was an All-American.During the draft, one team said it wouldn’t take him under any circumstances, and he was passed over by one club after another before New England took him in the fourth round.Afterward, Hernandez said he had failed a drug test in college — reportedly for marijuana — and was up front with teams about it.In other off-the-field troubles, a Florida man filed a lawsuit last week claiming Hernandez shot him in the face after they argued at a strip club in February.And The Boston Globe reported that Hernandez lost his temper and threatened a teammate during an argument in the team’s weight room shortly after he was drafted.Hernandez became a father on Nov. 6, and said he intended to change his ways: “Now, another one is looking up to me. I can’t just be young and reckless Aaron no more. I’m going to try to do the right things.”Associated Press writers Bridget Murphy in Boston and Howard Ulman in North Attleborough contributed to this story.

(AP) — New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez was arrested Wednesday and charged with murder in the shooting death of a friend prosecutors say had angered the football player at a nightclub a few days earlier by talking to the wrong people.Hernandez, 23, was taken from his North Attleborough home in handcuffs just over a week after Boston semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd’s bullet-riddled body was found in an industrial park about a mile away.last_img read more
