Former Kumul named in Warriors side to take on Muruks

first_imgRugby League Former Kumul Michael Mark has been named to play for Simbu Provincial Government Chimbu Warriors against the Petroleum Resource Kutubu Mendi Muruks on Sunday. Despite the Warriors rated at the bottom of the Digicel Cup competition table, the team has made some changes to include some old hands who will play along with Mark to give confidence to the young guns. They will be travelling along the Highlands Highway to face the Southern Highlands franchise club at the late Joe Keviame oval at Tente on Sunday in round seven of the Digicel cup competition. Head Coach and former Kumul Ezekiel Ben said losing five consecutive games and winning one was not a problem because all the players were young and lacked semi-professional competion experience. Ben said they are hoping the team will be a better side next year and in the future. He also emphasized heavily on the team poor performance that caused them many games but they needed to work more on that. Ben admitted that they lost all the games because of poor performance on their defense, saying they had ironed it out during training sessions and hoped that it worked out against Mendi Muruks. He said they were looking for a win against Mendi Muruks but it will not be an easy task for the Simbu franchise. Ben said poor defense had let the team down, saying that in any game defence and attack were the two main areas and they were doing enough with their attacks but needed to step up on their defence. He said they worked more on defence, saying that rating lowly at the bottom of the points table was not an issue. Ben said most of the players are young guns and lacked semi-professional completion experience. He said with the inclusion of some old hands it would mould the young breed and give them more confident. “This will not be an easy task because the Muruks are at their home province and we are flying the pride of Simbu flag and we will be playing for our pride,” Ben said. The Warriors line up: Steven Gari, Sam Paul, Jim Frank, Matthew Puke, Nima Joel, Joshia Jimmy, Tony Wemin, Peter John, Ludy David, Ludwig Gamba, Sonny Daing, Ismael Wayne, Michael Mark, Godfrey Thomas, Moses Wau, Philip Olmi and Chief Aure Wemin.last_img read more

Cristiano Ronaldo “sent” Gareth Bale to a psychiatrist

first_img Joe Hart, of Manchester City, and Luke Shaw, of Manchester United, have also worked with the psychiatrist this season. JA Sanchez 12/09/2015 CEST “Ronaldo’s acolytes in the dressing room, such as the youngster Isco, also made life tough for Bale. That is when he turned to Edwards.” “The world player of the year turned on Bale when it became clear that the Wales flyer had failed to pick up the Spanish language to his own, exacting standards. Upd. at 12:05 “On the pitch Bale’s performances, including his stunning goal against Barcelona in the Copa del Rey final and his strike in the Champions League final against Atletico Madrid in 2014, were threatening Ronaldo’s standing at the club. Neil Ashton wrote: “Perhaps that is why Bale was such a success again in his second season at the Bernabeu, learning to deal with the negative dressing room environment that had been created by Cristiano Ronaldo. The hostile environment Cristiano Ronaldo created at Real Madrid forced Gareth Bale to go and see a psychiatrist, according to the Daily Mail. The Welshman’s good start to the season has come thanks to Jamie Edwards, a former basketball player who helps sports stars prepare mentally. last_img read more

St Eunan’s NS open garden and orchard in memory of former pupil

first_imgThe pupils of St Eunan’s NS have paid tribute to much-loved former pupil Ava Feehily Harrington with the opening of an orchard in the school grounds.A sensory garden has also been opened to provide an exciting new space for the Laghey children to explore and learn.A special event was held in St Eunan’s NS on Wednesday to celebrate the wonderfully landscaped new facilities. Official Opening of St Eunan’s NS new sensory garden and ‘Ava’s Orchard’The children decided to name the orchard “Ava’s Orchard” after Ava Feehily Harrington, a former pupil who sadly passed away last year. “It will serve as a beautiful memory and tribute to a fantastic girl who is dearly missed by everybody in our school,” said a school spokesperson.Parents and members of the community established a path through the orchard which leads down to “Fairyville”; a magical seating area for children to enjoy the outdoors and to view nature. The orchard consists of apple, pear and plum trees and many fruit bushes like black currant, gooseberry and raspberry. The children planted 100 native Irish trees and daffodil bulbs on the opening day which will brighten up the area in springtime.At the back of the school is a new sensory garden which consists of sensory boards, percussion music stations, a wildflower garden, a bug hotel, bird boxes and feeders, a weather station, a small world play area, sandpit, hopscotch, fairy doors, fraction wall and a garden shed. The main feature is a roofed structure with three raised planter beds.New sensory garden at St Eunan’s NSParents and members of the community worked tirelessly since the beginning of the year to create this fantastic resource. Children will be able to use it every day during break and lunch time as it is an extension of the playground.A spokesperson said: “We would like to thank the Donegal County Council who provided a grant and to all local businesses who donated equipment, services and materials. It is sincerely appreciated and it will provide an exciting, interactive learning space for children in St. Eunan’s National School, Laghey for many years to come.” St Eunan’s NS open garden and orchard in memory of former pupil was last modified: November 16th, 2018 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:orchardSensory GardenSt Eunans NSlast_img read more

Trump sends mixed messages to China on trade war

first_img(AP) — Injecting fresh uncertainty at a time of global economic jitters, President Donald Trump sent mixed messages Sunday on the U.S.-China trade war as leaders at a global summit pushed the unpredictable American president to ease frictions over tariffs and cooperate on other geopolitical challenges.Trump’s head-snapping comments at the Group of Seven summit about his escalating trade fight with China — first expressing regret, then amping up tariff threats — represented just the latest manifestation of the hazards of the president’s go-it-alone mantra. Allies fault his turbulent trade agenda for contributing to a global economic slowdown.Despite Trump’s insistence that reports of U.S. tensions with allies are overblown, fissures between the U.S. and six of the world’s other advanced economies were apparent on trade policy, Russia and Iran as the leaders gathered at a picturesque French beach resort.Two days after the U.S. and China traded a fresh round of retaliatory tariffs and Trump threatened to force U.S. businesses to cut ties with China, the president appeared to harbor qualms about the trade war, which has sent financial markets tumbling.Asked during a meeting with British Prime Minister Boris Johnson if he had any second thoughts about escalating the trade conflict, Trump told reporters, “Yeah. For sure.”He added, “I have second thoughts about everything.”Hours later, the White House backpedaled. Press secretary Stephanie Grisham issued a statement saying the press had “greatly misinterpreted” Trump’s comments. She said the president only responded “in the affirmative – because he regrets not raising the tariffs higher.”White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow, who was in the room when Trump spoke and was later interviewed by CBS’ “Face the Nation,” offered his own explanation.Kudlow claimed Trump “didn’t quite hear the question” although reporters asked the president three times whether he had any second thoughts about ramping up the trade war and he responded three times.At first, Trump’s admission appeared to mark a rare moment of self-reflection by the famously hardnosed leader. The subsequent explanation fits a pattern of Trump recoiling from statements he believes suggest weakness.Earlier this month, Trump backed off on a threat to place even tougher tariffs on Chinese imports as aides fretted about their impact on the holiday shopping season and growing fears of a recession in the U.S.Trump had hoped to use the summit to rally other leaders to do more to stimulate their economies, as fears rise of a potential slowdown in the U.S. before he stands for reelection in November 2020.Johnson, for his part, praised Trump for America’s economic performance — but chided the U.S. leader for his unbending China policy.“Just to register a faint sheep-like note of our view on the trade war,” he told Trump. “We’re in favor of trade peace.”Trump said he had “no plans right now” to follow through on his threat of an emergency declaration, but he insisted he would be within his rights to use a 1977 law designed to target rogue regimes, terrorists and drug traffickers as the newest weapon in the clash between the world’s two largest economies“If I want, I could declare a national emergency,” Trump said. He cited China’s theft of intellectual property and the large U.S. trade deficit with China, saying “in many ways that’s an emergency.”For all of that, Trump disputed reports of friction with other G-7 leaders, saying he has been “treated beautifully” since he arrived.The cracks started to emerge moments later after the French government said the leaders had agreed at a Saturday dinner that French President Emanuel Macron would deliver a message to Iran on behalf of the group.Trump denied he had signed off on any such message.“No, I haven’t discussed that,” he told reporters during a meeting with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.Administration officials said Trump was noncommittal when the leaders discussed the subject of a message to Iran during a conversation about Iran’s nuclear program.For several months, Macron has assumed a lead role in trying to save the 2015 nuclear accord, which has been unraveling since Trump pulled the U.S. out of the agreement. The French went even further Sunday, inviting Iranian Foreign Minister Jawad Zarif to Biarritz in a bid to open talks meant on lowering tensions.Trump curtly told reporters he had “no comment” on Zarif’s presence. Officials said the White House was not aware in advance of the invitation to Zarif — a further indication of Trump’s diminished role.Trump also faced opposition from European leaders over his stated desire to find a way to re-admit Russia to the G-7 before next year’s meeting of the world leaders, which will be held in the United States. Russian President Vladimir Putin was expelled from the former G-7 in 2015 following Moscow’s invasion of Ukraine.And, sitting feet away from Abe, Trump declined to forcefully condemn North Korea’s flouting of international sanctions with a recent burst of short-range ballistic missile tests, calling them “much more standard” missiles. Abe views them as a critical security threat.Trump told reporters: “We’re in the world of missiles, folks, whether you like it or not.”last_img read more
