Windies at the double – Women, men in T20 World Cup finals

first_img BRUTE STRENGTH MUMBAI, India (CMC): West Indies crushed the hopes of a billion Indians when they produced a magnificent run chase to stun the home side by seven wickets and clinch a place in Sunday’s final of the Twenty20 World Cup. Entering yesterday’s semi-final as the underdogs against tournament favourites India, the Caribbean side silenced the full house at the Wankhede Stadium by overhauling an imposing target of 193 with two balls to spare in a riveting encounter. They were propelled by half-centuries from Lendl Simmons, who carved out an exhilarating, career-best unbeaten 82, and opener Johnson Charles, who belted an aggressive 52, while Andre Russell weighed in with a whirlwind unbeaten 43. Stumbling at 19 for two in the third over after losing key players Chris Gayle (5) and Marlon Samuels (8), West Indies recovered through the trio’s efforts to reach 84 for two at the halfway stage before plundering 112 runs off the last 58 balls of the innings. Requiring eight runs from the final over bowled by part-time medium pacer Virat Kohli, West Indies managed just a run from the first two deliveries, but Russell tugged the third ball to the midwicket boundary before clearing the ropes at wide long-on, to spark celebrations among the visitors. Simmons, who only arrived here from the Caribbean earlier this week to replace the injured Andre Fletcher, faced 51 deliveries and struck seven fours and five sixes. Living a charmed life, he survived three chances to anchor two key partnerships, putting on 97 for the third wicket with Charles before adding a further 80 in an unbroken fourth-wicket stand with Russell. Charles played a blinder, cracking seven fours and two sixes off 36 deliveries, while Russell flaunted his brute strength in belting three fours and four sixes off a mere 20 balls. With the win, West Indies set up a meeting in the final in Kolkata against England, who they beat in their opening game of the preliminaries. Earlier, the in-form Kohli top-scored with an unbeaten 89 as India raced to 192 for two off their 20 overs, after they were sent in. Openers Rohit Sharma (43) and Ajinkya Rahane (40) put on 62 for the first wicket before Kohli arrived to marshal the latter half of the innings. He crunched 11 fours and a six off 47 balls and added 56 for the second wicket with Rahane before dominating an unbroken third-wicket stand of 64 with captain M.S. Dhoni, who was unbeaten on 15. India scored freely in the opening overs with Sharma smashing three fours and three sixes off 31 balls, and Rahane giving support with a 35-ball knock that included two fours. With the Windies in need of a jump-start, Simmons and Charles reignited the innings with superb batting to keep their side in touch with the required run rate. Charles took a couple of boundaries from Bumrah’s next over and then got stuck into off-spinner Ravi Ashwin, taking 13 runs from his second over – the ninth of the innings. He reached his third T20I half-century off 30 balls with a boundary to long-off off medium pacer Hardik Pandya, but departed soon after in the 14th over when he swatted at the first ball of Kohli’s first over and holed out to Rohit running in from long off.last_img read more

The future of Jamaica lies in the minds and hands of its youth, thus we cannot have a better Jamaica without first doing everything in our power to empower the next generation to maximise their talents,” he said.Under the programme, the entity allows qualified secondary-level students to sit these two business subjects free of cost. This helps them to meet the minimum number of five subjects required for entry to a tertiary institution.For his part, Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Education, Youth and Information, Dean-Roy Bernard, welcomed the Foundation’s changes to the programme.“We are grateful to NCB for this partnership in supporting our students, especially those who want to take advantage of the new opportunities,” Mr. Bernard said.He also lauded NCB Foundation’s commitment in helping to ensure that students who demonstrate financial need and are excelling academically are able to benefit from this programme.Overall, the Foundation has invested in excess of $141 million in the programme, impacting the lives of more than 100,000 students.

Unistoten Camp will have to wait until Friday for injunction decision

first_imgFreda Huson and Warner Naziel outside the courthouse in Prince George, B.C. (Submitted photo)Kathleen MartensAPTN NewsA B.C. judge has reserved her decision on whether to grant an injunction against members of a Wet’suwet’en clan so the $40-billion LNG Canada project can proceed.Justice Marguerite Church put the matter over to Friday afternoon, said Warner Naziel of the Unist’ot’en Camp south of Houston, B.C.“She asked for an argument against an injunction,” Naziel said Thursday after attending the first day of the court hearing.“Our lawyer stated that it is a constitutional issue which affects the outcome of the Delgamuukw decision.”Delganuukw was a 1984 case launched by leaders of the Wet’suwet’en and Gitxsan First Nations, who took the provincial government to court to establish jurisdiction over land and water in northwest B.C.Now they are relying on Delgamuukw again, said Naziel who is named with his partner Freda Huson in the injunction and civil suit filed by TransCanada subsidiary Coastal GasLink.“We are trying to decolonize something that offers a privileged lifestyle to so many settlers,” he added in an interview.The Unist’ot’en house of the Wet’suwet’en clan system built the camp to offer addiction treatment and assert jurisdiction on land they say they were displaced from.The Unist’ot’en Camp blocks the Morice River bridge with this locked gate. (APTN/Kathleen Martens photo)It has also served to keep development away.“The Unist’ot’en Camp is not a blockade, a protest or a demonstration,” the camp said on its Facebook page, “it is a permanent, non-violent occupation of Unist’ot’en territory, established to protect our homelands from illegal industrial encroachments and to preserve a space for our community to heal from the violence of colonization.”At least until now.“A delayed decision is often a good sign,” Naziel said, noting all the hereditary chiefs were in court to lend their support.Coastal GasLink wants access to the Morice River bridge its said in a statement to APTN News, to get to the site of its pipeline one kilometre away from the camp for fieldwork.It is also claiming general, exemplary and punitive damages, costs and interest.It said in a release the legal action was “a last resort” after years of “attempting the engage the blockade” to reach a solution.“The Coastal GasLink team would like to thank each of the local communities and the First Nations groups along our pipeline route for their continued support through this process, including the elected band chiefs, their councils and the Wet’suwet’en hereditary chiefs who do support our pipeline,” the company said in a statement.But the camp said in a statement the injunction application and civil suit “aims to criminalize Unist’ot’en Camp and forcibly facilitate pipeline construction across unceded Unist’ot’en territory.”[email protected]@katmartelast_img read more

Tajh Boyd Making Case for Heisman Trophy Leads Clemson

After Tajh Boyd threw five TDs in Clemson’s season-opening victory against Georgia, the quarterback made a statement that he’s a real contender for the Heisman Trophy this year. Now, the QB is proving his case for the trophy for best college football player at the end of the regular season.Boyd threw for three touchdowns and rushed for another as he lead the Clemson Tigers to a 56-7 victory over Wake Forest on Saturday. The outstanding performance made him only the second Atlantic Coast Conference quarterback to score 100 career TDs.“It was a fun game,” Boyd said. “I got a lot of chances to smile out there.”Clemson offensive coordinator Chad Morris told Boyd to just go out there and “Have fun.” Morris mentioned before the game that he thought Boyd was putting too much pressure on himself, and that the quarterback just needed to relax and play his game.“The biggest thing for me is just to go out and enjoy,” playing football, Boyd said. “I’ve pretty much accomplished everything you can accomplish in a college career, minus a couple of things. But, now I’ve got to enjoy this last go-round with my guys.”Boyd’s accomplishments against Wake Forest left him at 102 TDs in his college career. He joined former North Carolina State QB Phillip Rivers as the only two players in ACC’s history who managed to hit the 100th touchdown mark. Boyd also surpassed Charlie Whitehurst as Clemson’s total offense leader, by throwing for 311 yards and running for 69 yards. read more

Scott said. Young children — and in one case, a pregnant woman — were detected among people trying to enter the U.S. through “a dark, treacherous canyon that is notorious for human and drug smuggling,”he said.No estimate was given for how many people from the caravan attempted to cross the border illegally in the last 24 hours.Another 345 individuals from the caravan have arrived in Tijuana. Of those, the Los Angeles Times reported that “no more than 200 of the group will go to the Tijuana-San Diego crossing and request U.S. protection.”Caravan organizers with Pueblo Sin Fronteras told the Times that the migrants are asylum-seekers fleeing from dangers in their home countries. The group plans to approach the San Ysidro Port of Entry on Sunday.The caravan has been making national headlines for the past month after catching the attention of President Donald Trump. It first began with about 1,000 people March 25 in the Mexican city of Tapachula, near the Guatemala border, drawing comments from Trump as evidence of what he and his aides portrayed as a significant threat, the Post reported.“If anyone has encouraged you to illegally enter the United States, or make any false statements to U.S. government officials, they are giving you bad advice and they are placing you and your family at risk,” he said.  “We are a very welcoming country but just like your own house, we expect everyone to enter through our front door and answer questions honestly. On a nationallevel that front door is the Ports of Entry. If you enter the United States at any place other than a Port of Entry it is a crime,” Scott said.“During the last month, we have endured a long and hard journey across Mexico, fighting for a safe and dignified life. The unity that we have built through this caravan has been the only way to find peace, which we did not have before. Now that our journey is ending, we demand that our rights as refugees, migrants and human beings be respected,” a statement by the refugee caravan said.

Californias Catholic bishops targeted in sex abuse lawsuit

first_img Categories: California News, Local San Diego News FacebookTwitter KUSI Newsroom, LOS ANGELES (AP) — A man who claims he was sexually abused decades ago by his parish priest said Tuesday he is suing all Catholic bishops in California and the Archdiocese of Chicago, seeking to compel church officials to release records on clergy abuse.The filing Monday in Los Angeles by Thomas Emens claims a civil conspiracy among church officials to cover up clergy sexual assault and move offending priests to other parishes.Emens said at a news conference that he was abused for two years starting in 1978 when he was 10 years old by Monsignor Thomas Joseph Mohan. The priest, who is deceased, arrived at St. Anthony Claret Catholic Church in Anaheim in the early 1970s from Chicago, according to the lawsuit.Attorney Jeff Anderson said the goal of the so-called “nuisance” lawsuit is to force the church to reveal the names of all priests accused of child molestation. He said church documents would reveal a “playbook” among bishops and other officials to protect offending clergy by keeping files under wraps and moving the priests across the country and, in some cases, out of the U.S.RELATED STORY: Bishop Robert McElroy to hold eight listening sessions around San Diego and El CentroThe lawsuit asks a judge “to abate the continuing nuisance” of abuse by ordering each diocese to name all accused priests, detail their history of alleged assault and identify their last known addresses.A call seeking comment from officials at the California Catholic Conference of Bishops, which oversees the state’s 12 dioceses, was not immediately returned. A call to the Archdiocese of Chicago was also not returned Tuesday.The court filing invokes both public and private statutes of nuisance law in California. Such laws generally involve behavior that negatively affects a community or interferes with the use and enjoyment of private property, said John Nockleby, a professor at Loyola Law School in Los Angeles.Alleging nuisance violations in relation to past sexual abuse by a single priest is a “creative approach” by Emens’ lawyers, said Nockleby, adding that it will be very difficult to prove in court.Criminal charges are not feasible in this case because they would fall outside California’s statute of limitations.
