By Sulayman BahBrufut United got a beating over the weekend losing 1-0 to Tallinding United as race for a promotion ticket to the first division heats up.A lone goal was all it took to apply the brakes on Brufut’s recent two-game win over Interior and Immigration.The victory renews Tallinding audacity to claim a return to the premier league, in a championship with more than two promotion contenders. Serrekunda East Bi, in another game last Friday, drew Interior one-all while Marimoo packed slaps on BK Milan, putting two unanswered goals past them.Red Hawks tied Immigrations one-all in a battle of struggling sides.In separate development, a Pa Omar Jobe’s first –half strike was more than enough to seal all points for Real de Banjul as they dumped Gambia Armed Forces out of the FA Cup. The All Whites now face Gambia Ports Authority April 13th in another grudged match.The two have met twice with Real losing to the league table-toppers and drawing the other. They will however hope for a sweet revenge on Ports at the Banjul Mini-stadium with the winner to take on either holders Wallidan or Hawks in the quarter-finals.
Arsenal manager Unai Emery admits their prospects of Champions League football for next season are not looking good.Three wins and three defeats in the space of seven games has seen Arsenal drop down to sixth-place in the Premier League table behind Chelsea and Manchester United.And Emery concedes that with only one Champions League qualification spot realistically up for grabs, Arsenal have a fight on their hands to return to Europe’s biggest club competition after a two-year absence.“There are teams better than us,” said Emery, according to AOL.“Are we outsiders now for a top-four finish? Yes, we are sixth. That’s the reality.“We still have to believe we can finish in the top four even while knowing it will be difficult for us.“There’s a big difference between the top three [Liverpool, Manchester City, and Tottenham] and us but we are a lot closer to Chelsea and Manchester United.Liverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.“The gap to the top three is too big but the other two? The possibility to catch them is there because we are only three points behind Chelsea and one point behind Manchester United. We still have to believe that we can do it.”The Gunners will take a trip to the Kirklees Stadium today for their next Premier League match against bottom-placed side Huddersfield Town with kick-off set for 4:00 PM (CET).Hector Bellerin, Danny Welbeck, Rob Holding and Sokratis Papastathopoulos all remain sidelined for Arsenal this weekend as they continue their recoveries from long-term injuries.Meanwhile, Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Granit Xhaka are doubts for the game. But Barcelona loanee Denis Suarez could make his first start after coming off the bench against Manchester City last weekend.Last time we played Huddersfield…@LTorreira34 to the rescue 🚲#HUDARS pic.twitter.com/JiGvb9gNrd— Arsenal FC (@Arsenal) February 9, 2019 read more

As of Oct. 1, the World Soy Foundation (WSF) is kicking off a new year of Acre Challenge. But first, we want to celebrate the end of last year’s Acre Challenge campaign. We set a high goal of $100,000 for the year in funds raised through the Acre Challenge—one of our biggest yet. Since the Acre Challenge was created by farmers for farmers, the donation to the Challenge (from a farmer or a soy family member) is typically the “value of an acre of soybeans,” or yield multiplied by price. This past year (Oct. 1, 2013-Sept.30, 2014), we saw nearly 570 donors Accept the Challenge and, thanks to their support, we were able reach and surpass our goal by approximately 1 percent! It is not without the support of those 570 individuals that we could continue reducing malnutrition through the power of soy!Their gifts are helping to support activities such as a school and SoyCow operation in Guatemala providing soymilk to young girls before class; mobilizing an extruder in Nicaragua with the potential to feed thousands of people and providing support to a community in South Africa for a sustainable soy-based foods business that provides soymilk to over 450 children!The WSF would like to send a BIG thank you to all who “Accepted the Challenge”—you have helped the WSF’s Acre Challenge have its most successful year yet! Now, we’re looking forward to seeing what exciting things we can accomplish this year with your help! Be on the lookout for some exciting new things coming this month through the end of December.Also, be watching for the big announcement on the winner of the “Top Supporting State” for last year’s Acre Challenge!Stay Connected!

Nearly three-fourths of Clark County seniors prefer either closing corporate tax loopholes and raising taxes for wealthy Americans over cutting Social Security and Medicare as a means to reduce the country’s burgeoning debt, according to an unscientific poll conducted Thursday at an AARP event in Vancouver.Reductions to Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid have dominated congressional discussion on how to rein in debt and whether to increase the nation’s $14.2 trillion debt ceiling. Congress must raise the ceiling by Aug. 2 to keep the government from going into default.AARP Washington has held seven regional community meetings and one statewide teleconference that drew about 17,000 people on June 28 to discuss Medicare and Social Security. The organization used the meetings to provide information, gauge seniors’ stances on hot-button congressional proposals and urge them to contact their representatives to make their opinions known on issues such as vouchers for Medicare and scaling back on Social Security benefits.More than 200 seniors turned out at Thursday’s event at the Red Lion Hotel Vancouver at the Quay. They were polled electronically on their opinions on various proposals, chiefly how they would seek to reduce the nation’s debt. The questions came amid elevated anxiety over news on Tuesday that Social Security checks might not be issued if Congress doesn’t raise the debt ceiling in time.“The problem with the debt is two wars and two tax cuts (not Social Security and Medicare),” said Battle Ground resident Dave Rowe. “Little people have to pay for it while corporations are making a profit.” read more
The combination of growing mission requirements and sharp funding constraints has forced the Army to find ways to manage its installations more efficiently and creatively, Katherine Hammack, assistant secretary for installations, energy and the environment, said during a Washington, D.C., forum last week.“We’re trying to figure out how to support soldiers, families, civilians and operations without the budgets that they need, with the budgets they get, so every installation has had to prioritize based upon risk and funding,” Hammack said.“It has given us an opportunity at the headquarters level to re-evaluate our programs and services,” she said, reported the Army News Service.As the Army tries to restore its readiness levels — amid growing demands across the globe — funding for installation support has dropped.“It is essential we communicate with one voice in the education of our colleagues and leaders and better articulate how installation infrastructures and services directly impact readiness and where the risk is being taken and its impact on the operating force,” Hammack said.Hammack emphasized five key challenges facing the installation community:communicating how installations support readiness and where they’re taking risks;prioritizing resources while consolidating services and programs;continuing to establish creative partnering to leverage core competencies;developing a model for installations in 2025 and beyond; andpersuading lawmakers to authorize a new BRAC round.She cited the Army’s successful initiatives to partner with industry to upgrade its aging stock of family housing and obtain new sources of renewable energy as models for collaborating with the private sector.“We want to continue to explore how we can expand partnerships, strengthen community ties, while benefitting both the Army and our service-providing partners,” Hammack said.And to help the Army eliminate the $500 million it spends annually on excess facilities, Hammack reiterated her call for a new round of base closures.“We must have authority from Congress to consolidate into our highest-value military bases and divest of low military value or under-utilized facilities,” she said. “Today, facilities that are needed to support readiness, to support training exercises, airfields and other priorities are deteriorating because the resources are spent to support installations that could be closed.” Dan Cohen AUTHOR read more

Health experts have stated that the condition of AES in Bihar will only aggravate until and unless rainfall takes place, as the deaths are being caused by excessive heat.TwitterAt least 40 people died in Bihar on Saturday, June 15, due to heat wave with Aurangabad, Gaya and Nawada being the worst-hit districts. Around 27 deaths were reported from Aurangabad alone, while 12 people died in Gaya. More than 100 people have been hospitalised in the state in the last 24 hours.Dr Surendra Prasad Singh, a doctor at one of Aurangabad’s state-run hospital, reportedly said that all the people who died were suffering from high-temperature fever.The state is also grappling with Acute Encephalitis Syndrome (AES) outbreak that has killed around 84 children in two hospitals in Muzaffarpur as of Sunday. Deaths due to AES are being caused because of excessive heat and humidity, according to the doctors.Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar extended his condolence to the families and announced “an ex gratia payment of Rs 4 lakh to the next of the kin of those who have died”. He also announced that those belonging to the BPL categories are being given Rs 20,000 each for the last rites.Union Health Minister Harsh Vardhan arrived in the state capital on Sunday to review public health measures for containment and management of the AES. He had previously said that the Centre was constantly monitoring the situation and supporting state health authorities to manage the encephalitis cases. Union Health Minister Harsh Vardhan arrived in the state capital today to review public health measures for containment and management of the AES.TwitterBihar Health Minister Mangal Pandey also said that the state government is doing its best to save children. “We are trying everything and anything that can save children’s lives. Everything is being made available from medicines to doctors. We have even called doctors and nurses from AIIMS in Patna,” he reportedly said.Additional health director Ashok Kumar Singh reportedly named heat wave and hypoglycaemia as the cause of the deaths. “The three Hs — heat wave, humidity and hypoglycaemia — are causing the deaths of children, who are suffering from symptoms akin to AES. Rains will reduce the effects of the disease. It has happened in the past too,” Singh said.On steps to check hypoglycemia, Pandey reportedly said, “Integrated Child Development Services has been running nutrition programmes through Anganwadi. Our immediate objective is to ensure parents’ awareness to ensure children do not sleep without food at night and wear proper clothes and avoid going out in the sun.””Government has been working from the beginning. There is no lack of medicines. However, there are lack of beds and ICUs as compared to the emergency situation at present,” said Suresh Sharma, Bihar Urban Development Minister.However, relatives of the patients admitted at Sri Krishna Medical College & Hospital in Muzaffarpur alleged that there were no doctors on duty available at midnight. “There are no arrangements here, doctors are not paying proper attention. Every hour, more children are dying. Since midnight, there are no doctors, only a few nurses are on duty,” the father of a patient said.Meanwhile, the state government declared on Saturday that all schools in the city will be closed till June 19 because of the rising temperatures. The shutdown was earlier supposed to end on June 16.The country is witnessing its worst heatwave this year with four cities in north India on a record high. There have been 32 heatwaves this year in India, the second-longest spell of high temperatures in the country’s recorded history. Delhi, Churu in Rajasthan, and Banda and Allahabad in Uttar Pradesh have witnessed temperatures of 48 degrees Celsius and above.An India Today report quoted health experts as stating that the condition of AES in Bihar will only aggravate until and unless rainfall takes place, as the deaths are being caused by excessive heat. read more
A security guard was found slaughtered at the site of an under-construction mosque in Vogra area of the city on Thursday.The deceased was identified as Abdul Motaleb, 68, hailing from Bagtabazar village in Mymensingh, used to live in a rented house owned by one Saidur Rahman in the area.Locals said that Motaleb started his job as a guard of the under-construction ‘Bogra Sarkar Para Jame Mosque’ 10 to 12 days ago.Moazzin of the mosque found Motaleb’s blood stained body early in the morning when he went there for calling out Azan, said Aminul Islam, officer-in-charge of Joydebpur police station.Being informed, police recovered the body around 8:30am and sent the body to Shaheed Tajuddin Ahmed Medical College Hospital for an autopsy.
Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL) president Saifur Rahman SohagBangladesh Chhatra League (BCL) president Saifur Rahman Sohag on Tuesday said they had gone to the Dhaka University vice-chancellor’s office to rescue the VC from the attack of some ‘outsiders and left-leaning student leaders’.”We went there hearing that some Jamaat-Shibir and left-leaning student leaders besieged the VC inside his office,” he told newsmen at Madhur Canteen on the campus.The BCL president made the statement after a series of attacks was launched in the afternoon on the demonstrating DU students who confined VC Md Akhtaruzzaman to press home their four-point demands in his office.At least 40 DU students were injured in the attack. Of them, 10 student demonstrators were undergoing treatment at Dhaka Medical College Hospital.BCL president Saifur Rahman Sohag said that Chhatra League activists did not go there to fight against anybody.The BCL leader also demanded suspension of the students who confined the VC and vandalised his office.Meanwhile, the BCL, the student wing of the ruling Awami League, demanded punitive actions against those who besieged the VC, calling them ‘left-leaning terrorists’ in a press statement.Earlier, around 20-25 BCL men, joined by others, stormed into the VC’s office room and managed to disperse the demonstrators including female students.The BCL activists were led by its general secretary Zakir Hossain.The demonstrators said they confined the VC inside his office around 12:00pm as the authorities were yet to respond to their demands.The demands include withdrawal of a case filed by the DU administration against students in connection with intrusion into the proctor’s office, actions against BCL activists, who had reportedly assaulted students and molested female students on 15 January, and the resignation of university proctor. read more
By Stephen Janis, Special to the AFROA disciplinary trial board cleared the officer who drove the van in which Freddie Gray sustained a fatal injury in 2015, of a series of administrative charges. Fourteen year-veteran Caesar Goodson was found not guilty of all 22 Baltimore Police Department (BPD) charges that alleged he had violated policy when he failed to seat belt Gray inside the van during the ride that led to his death in 2015.Baltimore police officer Caesar Goodson, the van driver that transported an injured Freddie Gray, prior to his death in April 2015, was cleared of all charges during a departmental disciplinary trial this week. (Courtesy Photo)The decision by the three-member board came after a week-long public trial, and now leaves the fate of Goodson in the hands of police commissioner Kevin Davis.The ruling marked the first of three administrative hearings for officers previously charged criminally in the death of Gray. Earlier this year an investigation by Montgomery County police recommended Goodson, along with Sgt. Alicia White and Lt. Brian Rice be fired for violating internal policy during the arrest of Gray.Sean Malone, who represented Goodson, blamed the department for providing poor training and lax supervision for Goodson’s failure to seat belt Gray. The defense also cited the Department of Justice report, which concluded Baltimore police used racist and unconstitutional tactics against the city’s African-American residents as proof that the department did not provide adequate training for officers.But lawyers representing the department argued Goodson ignored a policy directive known as a General Order issued shortly before Gray was arrested that required officers to seat belt prisoners during transport.The trial featured halting and at times vague video testimony from Goodson, who told investigators he could not explain why he failed to report van stops 3,4, and 5 during Gray’s transport on what’s known as ‘run sheet’, or a log of an officer’s daily activity. He also said he was not sure why he failed to report his visit to Maryland Shock Trauma center shortly after Gray was hospitalized. Goodson also testified that he thought Gray was playing the ‘hospital card’ when he asked another officer, William Porter, for medical assistance.The verdict promoted a quick response from police commissioner Kevin Davis.“Freddie Gray died in police custody. My thoughts and prayers remain with the Gray family. We will continue to make improvements within our organization to meet the expectations of constitutional policing demanded by our community,” Davis said in a written statement. read more
By TED ANTHONY, AP National Writer“Hope I die before I get old,” the Who sang at Woodstock as the 1960s hurtled to their end. Indeed, the decade and its echoes made premature legends of so many — Kennedy to King, Hendrix to Joplin to Morrison. They became emblems of an era, and the packaging of their virtues and vices has never really stopped.But then there were those who didn’t die, who did get old and emerged from that crucible and carried themselves through the arc of a life unabbreviated. They moved across decades and changes and navigated a culture that their younger selves would not have recognized.In this March 26, 1973 file photo, soul singer Aretha Franklin appears at a news conference. (AP Photo, File)That’s the crossroads where both Aretha Franklin and John McCain stood — shaped by the decade that reshaped so much of American life but propelled into the 1970s and all the way to 2018, carrying some of the fundamental storylines of the 1960s as they progressed forward.Think of the most dominant, most kinetic narratives of the 60s, the fiery combustion engines that drove the decade: From race, gender and music (Franklin) to war and politics (McCain), they are contained in the two figures to whom we bid farewell this week.They exit the stage together in an American moment not unlike the period when each emerged. Fifty years after the cataclysmic year of 1968, today we are in a similar period of upheaval and polarization — a time when American society’s foundational pillars are being questioned and people of all political persuasions are deeply angry and uncertain about the nation’s path.At a juncture like this, faced with this pair of memorials of a man and woman so very different and yet so uniquely representative of the American experience, what better time to stop and think about such figures, about what they meant and mean?Sure, we’re doing that. But are we doing it effectively?In the past few days, the American packaging machine has pulled these two lives into slick renditions of who they actually were. Video montages, photo slideshows, memories and even the pleasingly compact monikers we throw around — the “Queen of Soul” and the “Maverick” — are sweet and nostalgic, yes. But they tend to reduce whole lifetimes to their clichéd sharpest edges: the most popular hit songs, the most pointed quotes, the most outsized moments.The United States is often accused of being an ahistorical nation, and these fragmentary, Twitter-feed-like glimpses of entire lives make that assertion easier to prove. Sort of like we’ve come to view the 1960s themselves through the prism of reductive, Halloween-party buzzwords like “flower children,” ”sit-in” and “Summer of Love.”“If there were ever a moment for us to talk and sit down and reflect about who we are, where we came from and where we’re going, this weekend should give us that moment,” says Ron Pitcock, assistant dean of the John V. Roach Honors College at Texas Christian University, who teaches about American cultural memory.“We need to not compartmentalize these two people into these convenient narratives,” he says. “We have two giants who waded through these muddy waters for us. If we settle for just making them an icon or giving them celebrity, then we’ve completely failed in this moment of reflection.”The places where those muddy waters flowed were sometimes even muddier. Since the 1960s, the country has only gotten more complicated and, many believe, even more fraught.Trust in government sits near historic lows after beginning to plummet around the time that Franklin’s voice started becoming a household sound and McCain was enduring his years in North Vietnamese custody. Music, delivered on vinyl discs for Franklin’s first recordings, is now more typically served up in bits and bytes. And the stories of race and gender in America remain raw, ragged and aggressively unresolved.What’s illuminating about McCain and Franklin, in the context of the formative eras and experiences that produced them, is this: Each navigated historical currents — rode them, you might even argue — and each figured out how to remain relevant and impactful on their communities. Lives of high drama, yes, but staying power, too.“Years matter. The people from the ’60s who end up shaping America were often the ones that lasted. Ted Kennedy shaped America much more than John F. Kennedy,” says John Baick, a historian at Western New England University.“So many figures from the ’60s are caricatures of themselves,” he says. “Aretha Franklin and John McCain didn’t talk about the good old days. They wanted to bring the past into the present. They were living reminders.”The very youngest Baby Boomers are in their mid-50s now — despite the exhortation to never trust anyone over 30 — and more than half of today’s Americans have no living memory of the 1960s. When personal experience ebbs, myth fills in the mortar between the bricks.But those who were shaped by the decade continue to influence it, both alive and dead. Sales of Franklin’s music on the day after her death increased by more than 1,500 percent, Billboard Magazine reported.“Music changes, and I’m gonna change right along with it,” Franklin once said — or, at least, is widely quoted as saying. The 1960s were a time of great and lurching change. Those who made it through often had to change again and again — continuously, even. She did. He did.That might be the ultimate echo of that long-ago decade that Aretha Franklin and John McCain leave us with this week. Looking past all else, the main story of the 1960s was change — causing it, managing it, figuring out how to live with it.We’re still not anywhere near where we need to be with that, as American politics today so clearly demonstrate. In that respect, the lives of these two — and similar figures who survive them — hold clues still to be uncovered.

The Packers and Aaron Rodgers put on another lackluster performance in a disappointing 24-17 loss to NFC North rival Minnesota, and Colin thinks Rodgers decline this season, and prolonged inability to win on the road should take him out of the longstanding G.O.A.T. debate with Tom Brady.Against the Vikings, Rodgers only passed for 198 yards and a TD, and is now 1-9 in his last 10 games on the road. His cultish defenders always point to his lack of supporting cast, but running back Aaron Jones has looked like a budding star, the Green Bay receiving corp is good enough that Green Bay should be putting up more points, and the Packer defense ranks 3rd in the league in sacks.Colin thinks a large part of the blame falls on Rodgers, who has been inconsistent and seems quick to blame his teammates rather than look in the mirror. Colin has repeatedly said that Rodgers is one of the great quarterback talents of this generation – and a sure fire Hall of Famer – but thinks it’s time to take Rodgers out of the debate when it comes to discussing the greatest quarterback of all-time given his recent track record, and long drought of significant playoff success. read more

Arizona Cardinals offensive linemen Mike Iupati (76) and Will Holden (69) work on blocking drills during an NFL football training camp Monday, July 24, 2017, in Glendale, Ariz. (AP Photo/Ross D. Franklin) The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo 4 Comments Share Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires “When I came into the league, being a veteran was something that was esteemed and looked up to and a team tried to accumulate as many of those guys as they could and now it almost seems like the opposite,” he said. “You just look at a roster and the number of 10-plus year players is shrinking. It’s just a much younger league than when I started.”Somehow, Dawson escaped another trademark element of past camps. Dawson is taking part in his 19th NFL training camp, yet he has never stayed in one of those sub-par dorms Arians referenced.“I’ve been very blessed to have never had to go anywhere remotely,” he said, laughing. “It’s always been at my team facility, whether it was in Cleveland all those years, San Francisco, or now here. I’m living a charmed life.”Shipley is on the opposite side of the karmic wheel.“When I was in Pittsburgh we went to Latrobe, Pennsylvania — St. Vincent College,” he said. “When I was in Philly, we went to Lehigh in Bethlehem and when I was in Indy, I went to Anderson University.“Everybody likes to sleep in their own bed. When I was in Baltimore, after one week, veterans got to sleep in their own bed and that was like a game changer for me.” Stanton said when he arrived in Arizona, most of the players told him they hoped the team would continue going to its traditional camp in Flagstaff. That story doesn’t exactly jibe with some of the opinions we heard from Cardinals players when Bidwill moved camp to Glendale, but Stanton said something was lost in the move.“There’s a certain nostalgia of going to some remote place and being off the reservation; focusing on football,” he said. “It’s a change of scenery. You’re completely quarantined up there. You’re working solely on football. There’s not all this external stuff like going to restaurants or all the exposure we have here. You’re forced to come together with teammates, playing cards, hanging out at night and you really get to know guys off the field. Some of that still takes place, but not to the extent that it used to.”Arians sees more casualties.“You had more players and you practiced — some coaches, three times a day, but that was too much,” he said. “Twice a day, you’ve got so much more teaching involved, and you didn’t practice as long. When you look at a (current) three-hour practice, you’re going to get most of your injuries in the last 45 minutes because they’re exhausted. If you practice twice a day, in the same amount of time, you’re going to have less injuries; only makes sense, but it didn’t pass the CBA.” Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Stanton said he’d like to see the month-long grind of camp broken up with a visit to Flagstaff, just as the Colts did at Anderson University when he was in Indianapolis. Shipley said no matter where camp is staged, there are still plenty of challenges for players.“I know Bruce calls this Camp Cupcake but it’s still a grind,” he said. “We’re out there two hours every day, hitting. It’s more of a mental grind now.
