Van de Beek says “no” to United

first_imgAjax player Donny van de Beek ruled out joining Manchester United on Saturday during the winter break despite the interest shown by the English team. “It is certain that I will stay in Ajax until the end of the season and may continue in the next one”, the player told Dutch television “Fox Sports” after a friendly match in Qatar against the Bruges of Belgium, which won the Amsterdam 3-1. English and Dutch media have reported this week on Manchester United’s interest in signing Van de Beek in January of this year. “I said that I stay at Ajax and I will do it,” the midfielder reiterated when asked if he could discard his march halfway through the middle of the season., although he acknowledged that “it is nice” to hear that other teams are interested in him.Van de Beek, who has a contract with Ajax until June 2022, recognized last summer the intention of Real Madrid to sign him, but his transfer was twisted at the last minute.last_img read more

Govt has no right to suspend trade for more than a year – GMRA

first_img13 months into scrap metal banThe Guyana Metal Recyclers Association (GMRA), the official body for exporters of scrap metal, has reached out to lambast the Government for what it says is the illegal suspension of the trade for more than one year, rendering legitimate businessmen incapable of making a living.Agitated over the suspension of the trade, Secretary of the GMRA Michael Benjamin complained that not only was the license to ply their trade suspended without notice; the suspension for more than one year in itself is illegal.“For 13 months we are without any answers. We are pleading with the Administration to speed up the process because by law, the Government is not allowed to suspend the industry for more than one year… we have lost in the billions,” he bemoaned.Benjamin stated that the suspension has rendered exporters incapable of making a living for their families. He stated that many exporters have bank loans to pay and are unable to honour their contractual oblegations because the business has stalled.Questioning whether this is the good life the coalition Government promised them, Benjamin exposed that scores of workers have been laid off.Referencing this enormous loss, Benjamin is pleading with the Administration to speed up the process of the draft legislation which is aimed at reconfiguring the sector.“They told us that they are going to take the legislation to Cabinet next week and we are hoping that that is realistic because we were told that before. We don’t have time on our hands, our businesses are stalled. We cannot feed our family and pay our mortgage and our bills,” he said, asking the Government to tell them what to do.Last year, Government removed the responsibility of the scrap metal trade from the Central Housing and Planning Authority to the Business Ministry. Since then, the Ministry has been in consultation with various stakeholders and the Association to revamp the sector.The legislation is expected to go to Cabinet next Tuesday for approval. However, Benjamin fears that this is a fool’s promise.Benjamin stated that the sector had to lay off a lot of their workers because there was no work for them. He stated that some 1500 workers depend on the industry for an income.In 2015, Ram and McRae produced a forensic audit report, which revealed that the Scrap Metal Unit within the Central Housing and Planning Authority was accountable for a string of irregularities, including the mishandling of packing procedures for scrap and the expenditure of millions of dollars.It also revealed that the laws governing the scrap metal trade need to be completely revamped. Benjamin said the revamp should be accelerated because the Government cannot shut the trade down for more than a year.It has been 13 months since the scrap metal trade has been stalled.last_img read more

Appeal Court orders retrial for bicycle murder

first_imgThree years after a 12-member jury returned a unanimous guilty verdict, 27-year-old Ravindra Paremdass will have to undergo a retrial following a decision by the Appeal Court of Guyana on Friday, which set aside his murder conviction and accompanying prison sentence.Paremdass was implicated in the unlawful killing of Roopram Jagdeo, called “Lil Baby” and “Rabbit” who was said to have been murdered between December 20 and 21, 2012, at Providence, East Bank Demerara (EBD).Paremdass was sentenced to 57 years jail by High Court Judge Navindra SinghDeceased: Roopram Jagdeoafter trial. In that decision, the judge started at a base of 60 years and deducted three years for the time the accused spent awaiting trial. The Judge also ordered that Paremdass only be eligible for parole after he served 25 years.Paremdass’s lawyer, Sanjeev Datadin had, however, appealed the court’s determination and when the Appeal Court considered the grounds, Chancellor of the Judiciary (ag) Yonette Cummings-Edwards and Justices of Appeal Dawn Gregory and Rishi Persaud concurred that Justice Singh failed to adequately put his client’s defence of self-defence to the jury for consideration.On these grounds, the Court of Appeal set aside the conviction and jail sentence and thereby ordered that the accused man face another trial in the High Court for the capital offence.This means that the matter is set to appear at the next sitting of the Demerara Assizes which begins early next year. The facts of the matter outlined that the two men were involved in a heated argument over a bicycle and as tension unfolded, Paremdass allegedly administered Jagdeo with several blows to the head with a piece of wood.State Counsel Tamieka Clarke prosecuted the case.last_img read more

Barcelona star Messi almost joined Arsenal, reveals Wenger

first_img Lionel Messi and Cesc Fabregas Lionel Messi could have joined Arsenal from Barcelona as a teenager along with Cesc Fabregas and Gerard Pique, Arsene Wenger confirmed today.Argentina midfield maestro Messi developed into one of the world’s greatest players at the Nou Camp, but was close to considering a switch to England when he was 15 in the Barcelona Academy.A recent biography suggests the potential deal broke down because Arsenal were unable to purchase accommodation for Messi’s family, who were keen to join him in London, although the South American would still have needed to secure a work permit.Despite all of their efforts, Arsenal boss Wenger – who also scouted the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Didier Drogba when they were raw talents – believes the player just felt settled in Spain rather than take a chance on a switch to England.“I think in the end, he was not so keen to move, because it was at a period where Fabregas came, and Fabregas and Messi played together in the same team (at Barcelona Academy). We wanted to take Fabregas, Messi and Pique. It worked only for Fabregas,” said Wenger.“It was not completely down to a flat in the end. It was down to the fact that, in the end, Messi was comfortable at Barcelona.” 1last_img read more

DONEGAL TO GET WIDESPREAD eFIBRE BROADBAND AS EARLY AS APRIL

first_imgWidespread broadband is to be installed across the majority of Donegal as early as April, Eircom has revealed.The red parts of the map indicate the areas of Donegal which will get eFibre broadband between April and June while the green areas already have it.The country’s biggest telephone provider has revealed on its website that more than thirty telephone exchanges locally can expect to have eFibre broadband available between April/June.This will include a heavy concentration of telephone exchanges in South, West and North Donegal and in the Inishowen area. Parts of Letterkenny, Inishowen and Donegal Town are already eFibre enabled. Some parts of Donegal cannot get regular broadband yet and many other exchanges have low output.Some of the county’s exchanges have an ASDL2 system enabling current speeds of up to 24mb, whereas the exchanges that came on stream in the early broadband days have the older ASDL1 system with maximum download speeds of 8mb.The introduction of eFibre will see these speeds increase to a maximum 100mb download depending on proximity to an exchange or eFibre cabinet.Eircom’s latest interactive map shows a work schedule where the 34 Donegal exchanges can expect eFibre work to be completed between April and June of this year. Although unconfirmed, the map seems to indicate that Tory island will come under the eFibre broadband from Falcarragh.Meanwhile, Arranmore Island does not seem to be included in the upgrade according to the map, but bizarrely a check on Eircom’s website indicates that areas in Aphort and Leabgarrow on the island are eFibre enabled despite the island having no broadband availability.The community of Arranmore has been campaigning for better internet access for some years now. The island’s telephone system is connected to an exchange on the mainland that cannot accommodate broadband.In November last a London based islander said his plans to move his technology company to the island cannot happen because of the unavailability of broadband. DONEGAL TO GET WIDESPREAD eFIBRE BROADBAND AS EARLY AS APRIL was last modified: January 2nd, 2015 by StephenShare 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:AprildonegaleFibreEircomInishowenletterkennylast_img read more

TRACK STAR BRITTON TO RUN 3,000 METRES AT LETTERKENNY GALA EVENT

first_imgFionnuala BrittonThe organisers of Saturday’s international track and field meeting in Letterkenny, being held to mark the official opening of the Danny McDaid Athletics Track at the Aura Leisure Centre, have confirmed that Fionnuala Britton will compete in the 3,000 metres.Britton, who won a bronze medal in the event at the European indoor championships earlier this year in Gothenburg, is the golden girl of Irish athletics at present.Looking ahead to Saturday’s spectacle, which gets underway with a juvenile programme from 3 pm to 4 pm, Letterkenny AC Chairman, Brendan McDaid, said a lot of time and effort has gone in to putting together a top class event which will hopefully see the fist sub four minute mile run in Donegal. “Work first began on this event back in September and since then, we’ve been focusing on May 18th. We are extremely happy to have secured up to 120 high class athletes,” the chairman said.“We see it as a unique opportunity for people of the area to come and watch the cream of athletics in action. We are keeping our fingers crossed for good weather and are hopeful that the first ever sub four minute mile will be recorded on Saturday evening,” he added.The following is a break-down of all events on what promises to be an action-packed day.Event by event Men 100mIn the men’s 100m, England’s Richard Kilty will be coming to take on the best of the Irish. Kilty, a former European U-23 medallist, nicknamed “The Teeside Tornado” holds a personal best of 10.15 seconds and has been showing some good early season form on the American circuit. Dean Adams, and Chris Russell, along with up and coming athletes Zak Irwin and National Indoor champion Keith Pike will make sure that Kilty doesn’t have it all his own way to show who is the fastest man on the Letterkenny home straight.Women 200mKelly Proper just last week broke the Irish record for the heptathlon in Italy. She will feature in the womens 200m, a distance in which she claimed the National Indoor title earlier in the year. Tir Chonaill’s Mary McLoone will look to challenge Proper on Donegal soil. Louise Holmes, Sarah Lavin & Laura Costello will add further class to the field. Lavin recently recorded a standard for the European Junior Championships in the 100m hurdles, and Costello recorded a standard for the European Youth Olympic Festival over 200m.Men 400m Brian Gregan, European finalist over 400m last year, and fastest European indoors this year, will be looking to set his stall out for the World Championships in Moscow in August. Gregan will be challenged over the one lap distance by England’s Luke Lennon Ford who has a PB of 45.23 seconds, which is world class running. This will be some battle and when the lanes even out coming off the final bend, it will be an epic battle to the finish line. However, it is far from a two horse race with four other Irish athletes with bests of 47 seconds, Curtis Woods, Dara Kervick, Jason Harvey and Eoin Mulhall, who will all be looking to steal the thunder.Women 800mWomens 800m running has shown a resurgence over the past 12 months with several Irish athletes making the breakthrough to international level. Laura Crowe will lead the field in this event, and with a PB of 2:05, will be looking to get down towards the 2 minute mark. Alanna Lally, who holds a qualification standard for the World Youths Championships for the 400m, will be looking to add the 800m standard, and along with Rachel O’Shea and Clare McSweeney, will further add to the improvement in Irish womens middle distance running, hoping to make it a fast 800m in Letterkenny.Men 800m Quoted by many as Ireland’s hottest athletic prospect, local boy Mark English will be looking to impress the home crowd in the 800m. English recently recorded a fine win over 400m in an impressive time of 47.56 seconds, winning the Irish Universities title last month. Having finished 5th in the World Junior Championships last Summer, Mark has already established himself as a world class athlete. Another young talent Shane Fitzsimons from Mullingar will be chasing qualification times for the European Junior Championships, and along with Mark Patterson and Darragh Greene will be looking to get under the 1:50 barrier for the 800m.Men MileThe feature event of the meeting will be the mens mile and the field is star studded with Irish and international athletes looking to join the illustrious sub 4 minute club. Showing Letterkenny’s talent at middle distance, local trio of Darren McBrearty, Danny Mooney and Ruairi Finnegan would love to have the honour of running the first sub 4 minute mile on Donegal soil. Derry’s Conor Bradley will also be looking to join his neighbours in this attempt. However, it is from well away from Donegal where the biggest threat will lie. Kenyan’s Jonathon Kiplimo and Hillary Kipkorir will pose a threat, as African distance runners do. Kiplimo recently won the mile race at the Penn Relays in a time of 3:57 so will bring good form in to the race. Belgium’s Jeroen D’Hoedt will also come with a personal best over 1500m of 3:36 and will be looking to go well under the 4 minute mile. Last weekend, D’Hoedt ran 2:22 for 1000m so he is also bringing good form to Letterkenny. There will also be a challenge from England with Anthony Whiteman and James Tartt. Whiteman, a two time Olympian, is the current world record holder for the masters mens mile, having ran 3:58 in Nashville last year. At 41 years old, he became the first man over 40 ever to run a sub 4 minute mile outdoors, with Ireland’s own Eamonn Coghlan having been the first man ever to record a sub 4 minute mile indoors. With such a star studded line up for the 1609m distance, we will hopefully see the first sub 4 minute mile ever recorded on Donegal soil.Men 3000mAnother athlete with a bright future, John Travers, who had a superb indoor season with a 7:58 clocking to qualify for his first major track championship, will be looking to kick off his outdoor season. London Olympian over the marathon, Mark Kenneally will step down a distance, and will ensure Travers is not alone in the 3000m, also having broken 8 minutes before with a PB of 7:59. Former European Junior Champion over 1500m Colin Costello, double Paralympic champion Michael McKillop, Letterkenny’s own Ciaran Doherty, and recent North Pole marathon winner, Gary Thornton, should all ensure a fast 3000m will be on the cards.Women 3000mDouble European Cross Country Champion Fionnuala Britton will be the star of the show in the womens 3000m. Britton has shown her promise on the track, having competed in the London Olympics last year over 5000m & 10000m, and also having won a bronze medal at the European Indoors earlier this year over 3000m. She will open her outdoor season in Letterkenny, having recently returned from a period of altitude training. Siobhra O’Flaherty, another athlete with a qualification mark for the European Youth Olympic Festival, will be joined by Eimear O Brien and Teresa McGloin, making it a competitive race.Men 1 hour track raceThis rarely run event will see athletes running against the stopwatch to see how much distance they can run in one hour. John Treacy’s Irish record of 19625m stands since 1987 from Monaco, and it will be interesting to see how close Barry Minnock and Greg Roberts can get to this record. Minnock has a marathon personal best of 2:17 and will tackle the demanding event, and will need to call on all his reserves to hold off the international challenge from Kenya’s Freddy Sittuk. Sittuk recently finished 3rd in the Belfast marathon, and boasts a marathon PB of 2:14. He is currently staying in the North West with training partner Derry’s Greg Roberts, who leads the local charge over the 1 hour race.Women 1 hour track raceIn the womens’ event 1 hour track race, the winner will be assured of an Irish record, as the race has never been run by an Irish woman before. Olympian Maria McCambridge will be looking to see how far she can push this record, having dominated the Irish road racing scene over the past number of years, and the home crowd will be urging her on over the unique distance.Men 4 x 400m relayThe mens 4 x 400m relay event will provide a fitting finale to the evening of international athletics. The event will include athletes from many different clubs with international selections taking on the best of the Irish talent on display on the night. With two members of Ireland’s 5th placing world class performance at the Penn Relays in Philadelphia just a few weeks ago taking part in individual events, it may just serve up an exciting finish to the track and field programme.Men Shot PuttThe mens shot putt is shaping up to be one of the events of the meeting and spectators are in for a treat of world class throwing. Denmark’s Kim Christensen and Sweden’s Daniel Stahl hold personal bests of 20.39m and 18.76m respectively. Christensen competed in last Summer’s London Olympics and is known for his crowd antics, and Stahl recently won the European Cup of Winter Throwing in Castellon, Spain. They will be challenged by two of Ireland’s best throwers, multiple Irish champion Sean Breathnach from Galway and Clonliffe’s Tomas Rauktys. In the Junior competition, Finn Valley’s John Kelly will be looking to record another qualification mark for the World Youth Championships.Women Shot PuttNiamh Murphy comes in to the womens shot putt with a personal best of 13.04m, and once again Kelly Proper will compete in her third event of the evening, and shows her versatility by working on every aspect of her multi-eventing. This will serve a great opportunity for this, and Fiona Tuite will also be chasing another qualification mark for the World Youth Championships. Local girl Lisa Gibson will be looking to steal a victory for the home crowd and will use her familiarity with the shot circle in Letterkenny to her advantage.Men JavelinThere certainly will not be too many people keen to stand in the middle of the new Danny McDaid Athletics track when the javelin competition gets underway. It promises to be a hard fought battle between the best of Irish javelin throwers with several having thrown well over 60 metres. Matthew Martin and Aaron Crawford, will return from training in the UK for the competition, and they will face tough opposition from Adam Rice, Danny Mullan and Sean McBride. It will be interesting to see if Damian Crawford’s Strabane charges can take a victory from North Down, who also have decathlete Peter Glass competing. Crawford indeed will compete himself and holds a personal best of 70 metres, and may just show his young prospects how it can be done.Men High JumpKourosh Foroughi leads the field in the mens high jump with a personal best of 2.20m and he will be looking to begin his outdoor season with a good series of jumps. Several other athletes will be looking to get over 2 metres early in the season, with Jaime Murtagh, Andrew Heney & Adam McMullen. McMullen is completing the challenging double of the high jump and 100m, which shows his versatility. Local lads Derek & Aidan Gillespie, and Kevin Grant are also set to feature.Women Long JumpIrish record holder Kelly Proper will be looking to set her stall out early in the season, and with her recent successful debut over the heptathlon, it will be interesting to see if this has enhanced her jumping ability. Just as in the 200m, she will be challenged by Tirchonaill’s Mary McLoone, and along with Linzi Herron & Heather Carson, it will make for an interesting competition into the sand pit.Time Event Category Time Event Category3.00pm 60M Hrlds B13 G13 3.00pm H.J U17 B/G3.15pm 800M B14 G14 3.00pm Javelin U14 B/G3.25pm 600m B12 G12 3.00pm Shot U16 B/G3.35pm 80m B14 G14 3.30pm Turbo Javelin U12 B/G3.50pm 60M B12 G124.15PM 1 Hour Run Mixed5.30pm Opening Ceremony Speeches 5.30PM Field Events warm up6.00pm 100m M 6.00pm L.J.

Donegal woman speaks out about life with a painful disorder

first_imgKathleen King, the Chairperson of the Endometriosis Association of Ireland, has spoken out on Worldwide Endometriosis month to highlight the condition.The Donegal woman explained the realities faced by the one in ten women who have the condition. This month she has set out to guide women about the often unknown facts of Endometriosis.Kathleen King has been living with Endometriosis for 28 years, since the age of 12. She was diagnosed in Derry at 20 years of age after attending various GPs all around the country.  She has had several surgeries to remove endometriosis and treat her chronic pelvic pain. Kathleen King – Endo Association of IrelandThis week on DonegalWoman.ie, Kathleen shared some of her experiences and the knowledge she gained from a life with the condition which has a similar incidence to diabetes or asthma:Here are some of the key facts about Endometriosis:1. Severe pain with periods is NOT normal. Pain that causes you to miss social or family events or pain that is not relieved by over the counter painkillers can be a sign of endometriosis.2. Pain can be linked to your period, ovulation but also at other times of the cycle.  The pain is usually pelvic, lower back and legs. 3. Pain during or after sex is not normal, and as it is not something we chat about a lot to our friends or even our partners, it can go unreported to GPs. 4. Pain during or after a bowel movement / urination can be symptoms of endometriosis.  Passing blood from the rectum or in the urine may also be a sign.5. Other symptoms include fatigue, severely bloated belly, irritable bowel type symptoms6. In Ireland it can take an average of 9 years to be diagnosed.7. It is one of the leading causes of infertility, but not every woman with endometriosis is infertile. 8. It can only be diagnosed by a laparoscopy (key hole surgery to look inside the pelvis) and biopsies sent to the lab.  It does not normally show up on MRI or Ultrasound, but some cysts may show up.9. Pregnancy, hysterectomy, removing the ovaries, taking the pill, using the coil, menopause – none of these will “cure” endometriosis.10. Endometriosis can be managed by skilled surgeons with experience in excision surgery.11. There are lots of self help options, starting with the Endometriosis Association of Ireland for information. “As chairperson of the EAI, I am fortunate to live in Donegal where we have a good support network of women living with endometriosis,” Kathleen said.“I have been living with this condition since my first period, when I was 12. I was diagnosed in Derry when I was 20 after attending various GPs all around the country. I have had several surgeries to remove my endometriosis and treat the chronic pelvic pain that has resulted. “I urge anyone who feels that the might have endometriosis to get in touch with us on www.endometriosis.ie and info@endo.ie and on Facebook www.facebook.com/EndoIreland,” Kathleen said.Donegal woman speaks out about life with a painful disorder was last modified: March 19th, 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:endometriosishealthkathleen kinglast_img read more
