  • POTS Guyana to host memorial walk, candlelight vigil

    first_imgWorld Suicide Prevention DayIn observance of World Suicide Prevention Day, the non-governmental organisation (NGO) Prevention of Teenage Suicide (POTS) Guyana will be holding its annual memorial walk on Sunday, September 9, together with a seminar, concert and candlelight vigil on Monday, September 10, in the city of Georgetown.The memorial walk is scheduled to begin at 06:00h at the intersection of Charlotte and Camp Streets, Georgetown; and the suicide prevention seminar will be held at the Umana Yana in Kingston, Georgetown, starting at 10:00h. The suicide prevention awareness concert, in which teenagers would specifically be targeted, would thereafter be held at the Cliff Anderson Sports Hall. The day will culminate with a candlelight vigil held outside of the Sports Hall.The memorial walk is the third of its kind to be held by POTS Guyana. It aims at raising awareness about suicide prevention and mental health issues. POTS Guyana, being a non-profit organisation, is dedicated to reducing suicide in Guyana, presenting educational talks, and providing bereavement support services to survivors of suicide.President of POTS Guyana, Lisa Punch, has said, “It is imperative that our young people who are despairing and having suicidal thoughts know that there is help available. All you need to do is to ask for help. We expect 100 people to turn out to the walk, as we’ve collaborated with mass distribution companies. These walks mean so much to the survivors of suicide.“We expect 50 persons at the seminar, which is in collaboration with PYARG. The concert will feature our best artistes. It’s amazing to see entertainers take time out to give back to our future generation.”Established in 2014, the NGO now has 60 volunteers.last_img read more

  • Coutinho scores as Liverpool held in Moscow

    first_imgLiverpool have now gone seven matches without victory in the Champions League — their longest such run in the competition — and trail group leaders Sevilla by two points.“In this moment we’re not the most lucky team in world football. Things don’t go easy for us,” said Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp.“We did well to create chances against a very defence-oriented team. We didn’t give away many chances for them. The free-kick for their goal was not a foul. “In the Champions League group stage, the only target is to go through to the next round. That’s now possible for us. There were a lot of good things tonight.”Liverpool’s forward Mohamed Salah (L) and Spartak Moscow’s defender Ilja Kutepov vie for the ball during the UEFA Champions League Group E football match September 26, 2017 © AFP / Yuri KADOBNOVFive-time champions Liverpool paid the price for some wasteful finishing, substitute Daniel Sturridge and Mohamed Salah both spurning good chances to secure victory in the closing stages.On the plus side, Klopp’s men looked more solid defensively than in recent weeks, but Fernando’s goal raised questions about the decision to bring goalkeeper Loris Karius into the team in place of Simon Mignolet.While Russian champions Spartak have gone nine games without victory in the Champions League, this was a result to warm the hearts of their vocal fans on a chilly night at Otkrytiye Arena.“This is a draw against a very strong opponent,” said Spartak’s Italian coach Massimo Carrera.“You know all about the power of Liverpool. It’s always difficult to defend for the whole match against such a team. We had some of our own chances, but we weren’t precise enough with the final pass.”From a Liverpool perspective, the match was notable for the fact Coutinho started alongside Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino for the first time.– Rebrov injured –With their ‘Fab Four’ on the pitch, the visitors settled quickly and twice went close to taking the lead.Trent Alexander-Arnold volleyed wide from Salah’s lay-off and Firmino drew an agile save from Artem Rebrov with a forceful header.But Coutinho’s first telling intervention was to give away the free-kick that led to Spartak’s 23rd-minute opener.The Brazilian came through the back of Aleksandr Samedov and his compatriot Fernando swept the set-piece past a flat-footed Karius from 25 yards.Liverpool have kept only two clean sheets in their 11 games to date this season.Spartak Moscow’s goalkeeper from Russia Artem Rebrov is transported off the field after being injured during the UEFA Champions League Group E football match against Liverpool September 26, 2017 © AFP / Kirill KUDRYAVTSEVThankfully for Liverpool, Coutinho had the good grace to atone, a sudden burst of energy seeing him swap passes with Mane on the left before placing a shot into the roof of Rebrov’s net.Coutinho has scored in successive games since being brought back into the team following his unsuccessful attempt to engineer a move to Barcelona.Liverpool twice squandered chances to go ahead before the break, Firmino miscuing from Jordan Henderson’s cross and then a 4 v 2 situation breaking down when Mane strayed offside.Coutinho worked Rebrov with a free-kick early in the second half, but even after the Spartak goalkeeper was forced off by injury, with Aleksandr Selikhov replacing him, the visitors could not find a path to goal.Andrei Eschenko served a reminder of Spartak’s threat with a drilled effort that Karius boxed away.Klopp added Sturridge and Georginio Wijnaldum to the mix and saw teenage full-back Alexander-Arnold thrash wide with his left foot after cutting in from the right.His side procured two golden opportunities to snatch victory at the death, but Sturridge slashed a volley over from Henderson’s cross and Salah could not beat Selikhov with a header from Alexander-Arnold’s cross.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Liverpool’s midfielder Philippe Coutinho Correia shoots to score a goal during the UEFA Champions League Group E football match between against FC Spartak Moscow September 26, 2017 © AFP / Kirill KUDRYAVTSEVMoscow, Russian Federation, Sep 26 – A sparkling Philippe Coutinho goal was not enough to earn Liverpool victory as they were held to a 1-1 draw by Spartak Moscow in the Champions League on Tuesday.Coutinho cancelled out Fernando’s free-kick in the 31st minute, but Liverpool’s quest for a winner came to nothing, leaving them still without a win after two games in Group E.last_img read more

  • Bayern win sixth straight German league title

    first_img0Shares0000Bayern Munich have now won the German league 28 times in their illustrious history© AFP Christof STACHEBERLIN, Germany, Apr 7 – Bayern Munich were crowned Bundesliga champions for the sixth consecutive season on Saturday as James Rodriguez helped turn the game in their 4-1 comeback victory at Augsburg.The result mean Bayern are German league champions for the 28th time in their history, and it was the sixth year in a row they have won the Bundesliga since their treble-winning season in 2013. Augsburg took a shock lead through an own goal by Niklas Suele, but the Bavarians roared back as Corentin Tolisso, James — who then assisted Arjen Robben — and Sandro Wagner all scored.The result leaves Bayern 20 points clear with five league games left and underlined their absolute dominance of the Bundesliga.With one eye on Wednesday’s Champions League quarter-final second leg against Sevilla, in which Munich hold a slender 2-1 lead, coach Jupp Heynckes gambled by resting his stars.Top scorer Robert Lewandowski, plus Thomas Mueller, Thiago Alcantara, Mats Hummels and Javi Martinez all started on the bench.Sevilla would have encouraged by the comedy of errors in Bayern’s defence that led to Augsburg’s goal.Jerome Boateng lingered over a back pass and Colombian forward Sergio Cordova robbed him of possession, sending Boateng tumbling to the turf, clutching his hamstring.Cordova’s shot was blocked by Bayern goalkeeper Sven Ulreich, but the ball ricocheted into Suele’s face and into Bayern’s goal to stun the visitors on 18 minutes.However, Munich were 2-1 up by the time half-time came when Joshua Kimmich’s cross picked out Tolisso unmarked in the area to header Bayern level on 32 minutes.Bayern then laid on a top-class goal to take the lead at Augsburg’s WWK Arena.Kimmich was again involved, firing a pass across goal after combining with Robben for Juan Bernat, who backheeled the ball which James fired home seven minutes before the break.– Cameo for Ribery –The Colombian then ensured the title was heading to Munich for their third.He hooked the ball back into play at the far post for Robben to drill his shot inside the near post on 62 minutes.Ribery celebrated his 35th birthday with a cameo appearance for the final eight minutes before Wagner headed home Bayern’s late fourth.The Bavarian giants will formally lift the Bundesliga shield after the final day on May 12.Elsewhere, second-from-bottom Cologne suffered a blow to their survival hopes as they were held to a 1-1 draw by  Mainz.An early goal by Cologne’s Germany defender Jonas Hector was cancelled out as Pablo De Blasis headed an equaliser for Mainz five minutes into the second half.With five games left, Cologne are six points behind Mainz, who are 16th, which carries a relegation play-off berth against the third-best team in the second tier at the end of the season.Wolfsburg, who are just above the bottom three, won 2-0 at Freiburg in a match featuring two sides just above the bottom three and fighting to stay up.With just two minutes gone at the Schwarzwald Stadion, Wolves striker Daniel Didavi held off his marker and fired past despairing Freiburg goalkeeper Alexander Schwolow. He added a second with seven minutes remaining.Thorgan Hazard came off the bench to score twice as Borussia Moenchengladbach climbed to eighth with a 2-1 win at home to Hertha Berlin.Salomon Kalou gave Hertha an early lead, but Hazard come off the bench to score on 75 minutes, then net a late penalty.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

  • Gallegly campaigns for filing extension

    first_img If that happens, and Gallegly then resigns, the state would have to hold a special election to replace him, said Nghia Nguyen, spokeswoman for the secretary of state. Unless there is a successful court challenge to remove Gallegly’s name from the ballot and extend the filing deadline for five days, he will appear on the primary ballot with that of Republican Michael Tenenbaum, 37, a businessman/law professor from Thousand Oaks. “I got a phone call saying, ‘You’re going to be a congressman, the incumbent retired,’ and I thought, oh, someone’s got some bad information, and sure enough it was true,” Tenenbaum said. “Obviously fortune favors the brave.” Democrat Jill Martinez, a Presbyterian minister from Oxnard, also is running. But with the number of registered Republicans outnumbering Democrats by more than 10 percentage points, the district is expected to remain in GOP hands. Former Republican Assemblyman Tony Strickland, who is running for state controller, said he and others might have considered running had Gallegly announced his retirement earlier. Moorpark City Councilman Keith Millhouse said he might mount a write-in campaign. “I’m disappointed if Elton is unable to continue his candidacy that the voters will not have any choices of people who have a proven track records of public service,” he said, adding that he is most concerned about Gallegly’s health. Gallegly said he still hopes there will be an opportunity for other candidates to join the race. “I strongly believe that there are several good candidates for office that would have filed for candidacy, if they knew I was not running,” he said. “I had fully expected they would have that chance, and will continue to fight for their right to do so.” The Associated Press contributed to this report. Eric Leach, (805) 583-7602 SIMI VALLEY – Rep. Elton Gallegly’s last-minute withdrawal of his re-election bid could leave voters in the 24th Congressional District with no recognizable name on the June ballot – except his. Gallegly said Monday that he was trying to resolve the turmoil that erupted among Ventura County Republicans after he bowed out Friday – the last day to file for the June primary, making it too late to remove his name from the ballot or extend the filing deadline. “Many people have contacted me since Friday, people that I trust and respect, to express concern over my retirement, specifically as it relates to an appropriate and fair transition of elective representation,” Gallegly said in a prepared statement. “Obviously, fairness would dictate an extension of the filing deadline.” His representatives are considering legal action to allow for a filing extension and are working with the Secretary of State’s Office to seek legislative relief, he said.

Ventura County Clerk Philip Schmit said he initially thought Friday morning that there was time for Gallegly to withdraw his candidacy and extend the deadline but discovered later in the day there could be no extension and that Gallegly’s name would appear on the ballot after all. Gallegly has represented the heavily Republican district – which includes portions of Ventura and Santa Barbara counties – for 20 years. Simi Valley City Councilwoman Barbra Williamson said she bets Gallegly will win the election even if he is not officially running. “If he is seriously ill – and I hope he isn’t – and his name is on the ballot, I have no doubt he will be re-elected.” center_img 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
