first_imgBy Clifton RossIT WILL be a tussle at Tarouba part two for Barbados Tridents, who will look to go two up when they battle the St Lucia Zouks in today’s first of two headliners in the Hero CPL.The defending champs pulled off a daring heist against St Kitts & Nevis Patriots after posting 153-9 batting first. It was a dismal first outing in the bubble for the champs, compliments of some skilful bowling by the veteran seamers.Pakistani Sohail Tanvir (2-22) along with the Windies pair of Sheldon Cottrell (2-12) and skipper Rayad Emrit (2-16) strangled the Tridents batsmen. Tridents captain Jason Holder launched a counterpunch along with Kyle Mayers. Holder smashed 38 off 22 balls with 2 fours and 3 massive sixes.Mayers, who continued from the Regional 4-Day Tournament where he ended as the second leading run-scorer, also smacked a pair of fours along with three thumping blows which sailed over the ropes; ending with 37 off 20.Man-of the-Match, New Zealand all-rounder and Tridents overseas import, Mitchell Santner hit 20 off 18 with two fours and bagged 2-18 to set up a good win for his team later.St Kitts’ batting was the total opposite to that of the Tridents, with their top 4 batsmen all reaching double figures. Opener Chris Lynn, the Aussie T20 specialist, blasted 3 fours in his 19 while his partner Evin Lewis made 12.Another Australian and T20 gun-for-hire, Ben Dunk thumped a few deliveries around as he too scored with 34 off 21 balls – three fours and 1 maximum.Joshua DaSilva, who made his name really known recently after stroking a ton on tour against England in the warm-ups, prior to the Test series; switched to T20 mode against Tridents.The West Indies Emerging Player (WIEP) hit a run-a-ball 41 with 3 fours and remained not out, almost taking his team over the line. Afghanistan star spinner Rashid Khan bagged 2-20, lending ideal support to Santner as the champs wrapped up their first test by 6 runs.Today’s match against Zouks will be another opportunity for Tridents talented top-order – Johnson Charles, Shai Hope, New Zealander Corey Anderson, Johnathan Carter and Raymon Reifer – to all make amends for failing in the first attempt.Their frontline spinners, West Indies’ Hayden Walsh Jr. and Ashley Nurse went wicket-less in the first game but could have a better assessment of the conditions ahead of today’s match.Action between Tridents and Zouks bowls off at 10:00hrs; followed by the highly-anticipated battle between former respective champions Trinbago Knight Riders and Jamaica Tallawahs, which gets underway from 17:30hrs.last_img read more

first_imgSenior outside hitter Niki Withers has racked up 266 kills for USC this year as the team wraps up the regular season this week. Photo by Kaan Demiroz | Daily TrojanThis week, the No. 13 women’s volleyball team will travel up to Eugene, Ore., to face No. 24 Oregon on Wednesday before battling No. 19 UCLA at the Galen Center on Saturday in the team’s final home match of the regular season. The Women of Troy (21-8, 13-5 Pac-12) started out the season unranked and were tabbed to finish sixth in the conference by Pac-12 coaches. At 13-5, they’re sitting in second place in the conference. If they can pick up wins against the Ducks (16-10, 9-9 Pac-12) and the Bruins (17-10, 10-8 Pac-12), second place is as good as theirs with Washington and Utah tied for third at 12-6.Oregon is 11-4 at home this season, and USC is 8-5 on the road. Going into Wednesday’s match, the Ducks carry a three-match losing streak, and while the Women of Troy did have a five-match win streak, it came to an end against No. 4 Stanford last weekend. The team rebounded by sweeping Cal two days later. To pick up a win in Eugene, USC must stop senior outside hitter Taylor Agost. Against both Washington schools, Agost put up a team-high 36 kills while recording a .289 hitting percentage. Her 25 kills against the Cougars was a season high. She is the team’s go-to hitter, with 288 kills on the season. Right behind Agost is sophomore middle blocker Ronika Stone, who had a season-high 18 kills against the Cougars and 25 kills on the weekend. After playing the Ducks, the Women of Troy will head back to Los Angeles and the friendly confines of the Galen Center. USC has lost its final regular season match to the Bruins in the last three seasons.But earlier this season, the Women of Troy opened up conference play with a riveting five-set victory over the Bruins at Pauley Pavilion. After falling behind 2-1, then-No. 21 USC won the final two sets to top No. 11 UCLA(25-21, 15-25, 18-25, 25-21, 15-11). It was the fourth time in the last six matches between the rivals to go five sets. Senior opposite hitter Brittany Abercrombie led all hitters with a then-career-high 18 kills. She topped that for a career-high 19 kills against Washington in October. Sophomore outside hitter Khalia Lanier was right behind her with 17 kills. UCLA dominated defensively at the net, putting up 11 blocks to USC’s four, but despite the strong defense, the Women of Troy produced a .251 hitting percentage.UCLA will be coming off a Wednesday match against Oregon State. Last weekend, the Bruins split two matches in Northern California, losing to Stanford in five sets but sweeping Cal. USC is 10-1 at home this season, while UCLA is 7-6 on the road. To snatch a win over their crosstown rival, the Women of Troy will have to limit the Bruins’ strong offense led by senior outside hitter Reily Buechler, freshman outside hitter Jenny Mosser, sophomore middle blocker Madeleine Gates and freshman outside hitter Mac May. All four attackers have more than 240 kills on the season. Buechler, with 342 kills, is the only player with more than 300 kills. Mosser is close, sitting at 294 kills on the season. USC has three hitters — Lanier, Abercrombie, senior outside hitter Niki Withers — with more than 265 kills on the season. Lanier leads the Women of Troy with 378, followed by Abercrombie’s 354 kills. Wins against the Ducks and Bruins should set up the Women of Troy in strong position for the NCAA Tournament. The selection show will take place Nov. 26. The road to Kansas City for the national championship starts Nov. 30 with first-round matches. First serve against the Bruins will be at 7 p.m. at the Galen Center Saturday.last_img read more

first_imgThe Progressive Peoples Party’s(PPP)presidential candidate Dr. Papa Kwesi Nduom is set to spark a major debate after his comments that Ghana does not need a Youth and Sports Ministry, adding that he would scrap the Ministry should he become President of Ghana.Dr. Nduom says he is not downplaying the sector’s importance but is looking forward to using a totally different approach to sports development. “I don’t think it’s necessary. I believe that you should have only sports associations to run sports. If you want an athletics association it should be there and if you want a governing body there should be one but it should be voluntary,” he told Joy Sports.Nduom thinks that the government should provide the facilities, sponsorship and incentives that will allow other people to put money into sports. “If as I am sponsoring a football team and as I am interested in building a sports facility and there are tax incentives, I will speed up my activities so that the people in my area will have a good sports facility to use and to benefit from,” he added.The Youth and Sports Ministry has been in existence for decades and has the mandate of overseeing the development and promotion of sports. The ministry has occasionally undergone major redefinitions of its functions since Ghana’s independence in 1957.One restructuring took place in 1978 when the ministry, then headed by the Commissioner for Sports, became strictly responsible for sports development and administration.There have also been times when the Ministry has merged with others. Under ex-President Kufuor’s administration, for example, the Youth and Sports Ministry merged with Education and Science. The Ministry has also been considered one of the least stable seats for political appointees, headed by four different Ministers in the last four years.Alhaji Mubarak Muntaka was replaced by Alhaji Pelpuo in 2009. A year later, Akua Sena Dansua was appointed, holding the post until last year, when she was succeeded by the current Minister, Clement Kofi Humado.last_img read more

first_imgA copy of the Constitution hangs on the restroom door. The objects that adorn the walls run the gamut of time and place: a public health advisory sign from the city of New York parks and recreation department that warns pregnant women not to “eat fish or eels caught in these waters,” a boxed “crazy cat lady” action figure, a sombrero, a sign for Bianchi bicycles. Try to find a thread that runs through this decor, a unifying theme or a cumulative message, and you might just drive yourself crazy.Instead, appreciate the amalgamation for what it is: a fusion of crafted works of art and simple snapshots of reality. It is, at once, a space that displays creative outputs and reminds us of less-inspiring realities: a painting of a woman with blue hair on one side of the room and a copy of “Civil War Naval Chronology” on a bookshelf on the other. It is wonderfully alternative without trying so hard to be. It is as transcendent as it is grounded. By Jenna Moldaver |HIGHLANDS – “Water Witch is like this vortex,” said Valerie Browning, owner of Water Witch Coffee. “All these creative people just come toward it.”When waiting for your order at Water Witch Coffee, you won’t be at a loss for entertainment. Your eyes may drift across art-lined walls, fixating on vibrant pieces from artists across the country, or you might take a seat in a spindle-back chair and absorb the eclectic decor that encompasses you in your little corner of this inventive space on Waterwitch Avenue. Either way, there’s a lot to see, hear and experience. Browning, who has run the shop for four years, has grown Water Witch into a cultural hub. There are blues jams every third Sunday of the month, traditional Irish music jams every second and, most popularly, open mic night every Wednesdays. The music scene has given birth to groups like the Water Witch Jazz Band, which has used the space both to practice and perform.“It’s a welcoming atmosphere for people to come into as musicians and the place really fosters the growth of all the arts,” said Browning. “There’s this one woman who comes in who says, ‘Val, this place saves lives,’ ” Browning said. “Because without it they wouldn’t really have anywhere to go. There’s a Water Witch family. You can walk into the shop and find someone if you need help. Someone will know something about almost any topic.”When she’s having a bad day, Browning says the cure is simply going in to work, where customers fill the place with color. Customers have named menu items, jammed out on weeknights and grown to know the staff. They are more than patrons; they are participants. “We have a lot of regular customers who I see every day who have been coming here for 12 years,” says Browning. “Some are detectives, some have had computer engineering jobs and they show up at 6:30 every morning. If one doesn’t show up they end up calling the other ones.”Browning says she couldn’t begin to describe all the different people who come into the shop. “Highlands has a sort of quirkiness to it and it’s filling up with all sorts of people,” she said.One thing they all have in common, though, is they all care deeply about the shop and together they form what Browning calls the “Water Witch family.”center_img This article was first published in the June 14-June 21, 2018 print edition of The Two River Times. Water Witch has artists lined up well into next year to do art shows in the shop. Every two months a new artist takes over the walls of Water Witch, giving customers an ever-changing backdrop. Some artists have created entire shows just for the purpose of having their work displayed at the shop.“Every two months the customers have a whole new genre or idea of art,” says Browning.But not everyone who steps foot in the shop is buzzing with artistic talent. While a welcoming space for creative types, Water Witch is home base for a wide variety of locals. Water Witch Coffee is more than just savory paninis and espresso drinks; it’s a breath of pure authenticity in the Highlands community. It’s both a venue where musicians can perform during Wednesday open mic nights and a workspace for anyone with a laptop and a latte craving. You can use it for its authentic promotion of the arts or for its Wi-Fi and crepe offerings. The space is yours to experience.And experiencing it is exactly what people have done.last_img read more

first_imgNearly three years after Fort St. John City Council first made a resolution to look into the possibility of implementing an anti idling bylaw, Council has decided to re-examine its options.At a council meeting in June 2008, city staff was asked to look into the possibility of obtaining grant funding under the Ministry of Environment’s B.C. Air Action Plan. Although grant funding is no longer available, staff told Council that the Idle Free BC website offers information about creating an idle-reduction campaign. Furthermore, the City recently received a letter from a resident asking the City to investigate implementing an anti-idling bylaw. In his letter, the resident says he has experienced excessive vehicle idling in his neighbourhood and believes it is extremely unhealthy for residents to have to breathe in the exhaust.Currently, the Northern Environmental Action Team is conducting an idle reduction outreach program throughout the City. The program is designed to educate residents about the hazards of idling while specifically focusing on areas around schools and businesses.The City had originally put forward a motion to wait until it received a full report from NEAT regarding its education and awareness campaign before considering a bylaw. NEAT is expected to be finished its campaign by December 2011. However, several councillors said they did not feel they should have to wait until the campaign is complete to consider a possible bylaw.Advertisement Council voted against the proposed motion and instead passed an alternate option that city staff would “investigate and draft an Anti-idling Bylaw for the City” to be prepared by April 30.Mayor Bruce Lantz brought up potential problems regarding enforcing this type of bylaw. Lantz said the City would have to increase the number of bylaw officers it has to ensure the bylaw is enforced. However, Councillor Dan Davies said he believes that just because the City may not have enough bylaw officers to catch every idling vehicle that it should be prevented from implementing an anti idling bylaw.Davies said one possible option is for the City to use a complaint-based system to catch idling vehicles.Although both Prince George and Dawson Creek currently have anti idling policies – without strict enforcement – city staff told Council that most of the communities in the province that have anti idling bylaws are not located in the north.Advertisement Update – Below is a full copy of the debate City Council had on the idea of an anti idling bylaw.  – Advertisement –Get Microsoft Silverlight Note: Please disregard the first page of the “Diesel Idling Myths and Facts” attachment. According to city staff, if Council approves an anti idling bylaw, it will be the first municipality in northern B.C. to do so.Below are copies of questions and answers regarding vehicle idling and idling myths and facts regarding diesel engines that were provided to city councillors.last_img read more
