Melbourne to open academy today

first_imgPresident of Melbourne Cricket Club, Mark Neita, is hopeful that the establishment of an academy at the institution will lead to an identification and nurturing of future Jamaica and West Indies players.The academy, which seeks to develop the talent of youngsters between the ages of nine and 17 years old, is set to open today at the club’s Courtney Walsh Drive location.”The idea behind the academy is two fold,” said Neita.”Firstly, we are responding to the call by the president of the West Indies Cricket Board for clubs and parish associations to have an academy.”This, of course, is to help with the development of players for national and regional levels.”Secondly, we at Melbourne hope to continue to enhance the technical abilities and skill of our members.”The academy, which will be headed by national assistant and Under-19 head coach, Robert Samuels, is set to run for 10 months.Throughout the period, it is expected to feature as guest coaches a number of current and past West Indies and Jamaica players. These include former West Indies captain Courtney Walsh, Robert Haynes and Nikita Miller.The academy will also turn out an Academy XI, which, according to Neita, will traverse the country to play other academy units.”The Academy XI will play a number of age-group teams from around the country, including similar academy teams from the BREDS Foundation in St Elizabeth and Lucas CC,” he said.The academy, which attracts a cost of $5,000 per month per participant, will be staged on Saturdays between the hours of 8 a.m. and 10:30 a.m, and 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.last_img read more

Gonzales, mayor tour Homeboy work site

first_img(818) 713-3741160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Drawing inspiration from a high-profile anti-gang program, U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales on Monday touted the education and job training provided by Homeboy Industries, but he stopped short of committing more federal money toward efforts to curb violence in L.A. Gonzales and Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa took a half-hour tour of the Boyle Heights clothing factory where some 100 former gang members are employed and discussed how the federal government might help the city in its latest campaign against gangs. “Los Angeles is in a unique situation, and we are going to look hard to see what resources are available,” Gonzales said. “These are individuals who ran through a spell of bad luck, they had some trouble, but they are trying to turn their lives around, and it really is inspiring to see that.” Founded by the Rev. Greg Boyle, a Jesuit priest, Homeboy Industries provides jobs, training, counseling and tattoo removal to current and former gang members. With a slogan “jobs not jails,” it has been held up as a model program in a city where there are nearly 40,000 gang members. Last year, gang violence soared 14 percent citywide and 44 percent in the San Fernando Valley. Part of its funding comes from a $2.5 million grant from the Justice Department that is set to expire this year. Villaraigosa is expected to announce soon his gang intervention and prevention strategy. rachel.uranga@dailynews.com last_img read more

Wayne Rooney WILL remain Manchester United captain, Jose Mourinho confirms

first_imgWayne Rooney will remain as Manchester United captain and Jose Mourinho cannot understand why so many question the forward’s capabilities.No longer the lung-busting striker that broke onto the scene as a teenager, the 30-year-old Rooney accepted in recent months that a future in midfield beckons.It was a role Rooney performed for England at Euro 2016 having ended the season there at United under Louis van Gaal, although successor Mourinho believes the Red Devils will get the best out him in attack.Those comments upon the Portuguese’s unveiling raised fresh questions about how best to utilise Rooney, but Mourinho has big plans and a lot of trust in his skipper.“I am quite surprised with so many question marks around this guy,” the United boss said at the team hotel in Shanghai.“I know that at the national team level you have this capacity of trying to make things complicated for yourself, so what happened around him in the summer was not a surprise for me.“But in my club we are not going to have that. He is the club captain, he is the manager’s captain, he is the players’ captain.“I trust him a lot. I think he’s going to be a very important player for me and no problem for him.“He knows that he has to work hard, he knows that but I think that is nothing new in his career. Everything he got I see nobody offer him, he had to fight for it.“With me it is not going to be different. But, yes, he is my captain.”Rooney’s position in the starting line-up may be in doubt, but his Old Trafford future never looked in jeopardy.The same cannot be said for some of his United team-mates, with speculation growing around a number of players as Mourinho shapes his squad.Juan Mata’s position has come under particular scrutiny having been sold by Chelsea when Mourinho was Blues manager in January 2014, but the Portuguese was keen to set the record straight and confirmed the Spain international has an Old Trafford future.“Well again it is a strange question because I don’t understand why he doesn’t have a future,” Mourinho said.“First of all, I think maybe all of you misunderstood what happened in our previous club because I never told Mata to leave. I never pressed the club to sell him.“It was his decision and only his decision and I don’t like players that want to leave.“That’s why I think every player has a price because if one day a player wants to leave it is because he does not want to be with us.“If the player doesn’t want to be with us, goodbye – be happy where you want to go.“Juan at our previous club was not so happy because he was not my first choice at that time. He wanted to play every game.“He had a fantastic offer from a big club like Man United, he wanted to leave. My previous club had a great offer, we thought that was financially very much acceptable.“We were not with this old-fashioned idea of ‘I don’t sell players to my direct competitors inside of my own country’. We sold him to Man United and done. Nothing else.“In this moment I arrive, he’s here, he works hard. He knows that I know he is a good player and he has space in the squad.“But again until the 31st of August the market is open for every one of my players that is not happy.“But, to be fair, I think he is. I think he is happy and I am not expecting him to ask to leave. I am expecting him to do what he is doing now, which is to fight for a place.“In the end there will be space for everyone, we have 38 matches in the Premier League, we expect to play a lot of them in the Europa League and domestic cups so a squad of let’s say 22 players there will be a space for everyone. So, yes, there is a space for Juan.” Wayne Rooney 1last_img read more

The Jinja-based side has now drawn both of their first two games of the season, having played out a two all thriller with SC Villa last Friday.Elsewhere, Allan Kayiwa’s second-half strike was enough to hand Tooro FC their first victory of the season.The Fort Portal based side who lost 2-1 away to KCCA FC finally registered their first three points with a hard fought 1-0 win in Njeru over Bul FC.Godfrey Lwesibawa nearly put Tooro United in the lead in the 13th only for his effort to go a few inches wide.This was a wake-up call to the hosts who responded by Richard Wandyaka’s strike which was well dealt with by Joel Mutakubwa.BUL FC was forced into an early forced substitution when Joshua Lubwama come on for injured Patrick Sembuya in the 40th minute.Minutes after the restart, Kayiwa but the away side in the lead. This was the former Express FC midfielder’s second goal of the season after scoring the consolation against KCCA on Friday.Simon Sserunkuma and Lwesibawa created several opportunities later but could not double Tooro’s advantage as Hannington Ssebwalunyo stood tall to save his side.Villa Oromchan thought he had leveled matters for BUL but his effort was ruled out for offside by referee Joseph Ochom.The results leaves BUL FC 6th while Tooro United move up to 7th from 10th.Both teams will be back in action on 16th- October as BUL will be paying a visit to Paidha Black Angels Arua and Tooro United will play host to Kirinya Jinja SS at Buhinga Stadium Fortportal.At Luzira, Vipers rallied from a goal down to defeat Maroons 2-1 in Luzira and move top of the league table.All the goals came in the first half as Pius Obuya put the hosts ahead with a sublime strike before Davis Kasirye leveled matters with his second in as many games. With half time beckoning, Moses Waiswa curled home a sublime free-kick to ensure the venoms maintain a 100% record in the new season.The other game played on Tuesday:-Express 0-0 URA FCComments last_img read more

Education a national priority

first_imgThe announcement of the 2010 matric results by Basic Education Minister, Angie Motshekga today has indicated an improvement on 2009’s performance, with the Minister describing the results as a “remarkable achievement”.South African’s support for the Class of 2010 has been phenomenal and these positive results are indicative of the communities’ spirit of Ubuntu. People opened up their homes to learners, retired teachers gave of their time, businesses offered resources and non-profit organisations facilitated opportunities for learner support.The teachers’ strike, following the suspension of teaching during the 2010 World Cup, with slightly less schooling time, undoubtedly had an effect on results. The Minister admits that it was possible that the public sector dispute might have robbed the department of its targeted 70% pass rate.“On a global level, the South Africa education system performs poorly compared to those in countries at a similar stage of development, such as Brazil, Russia, Argentina and Mexico. It is particularly worrying that the Global Competitiveness Index of the World Economic Forum (WEF) places South Africa in the bottom two performing countries with regard to the quality of maths and science education”, Matola points out.  The importance of education was underlined last year at the WEF annual meeting which held a session specifically focusing on this issue. In its summary, it states that the many problems that plague the world, from poverty to global security, could be solved by better access to quality education.What is needed, says the WEF, is a partnership between the public and private sectors to develop a new vision for education that will meet the needs of the ever-changing job market. To this end, Brand South Africa and the Department of Basic Education hosted a special session with private sector companies at the end of November 2010 to magnify the need for an integrated approach to educational delivery.  Matola continues, “Brand South Africa recognises this and is driving a call to make education a societal issue. This joint ownership of education is in the spirit, too, of Ubuntu – one of collective support and engagement beyond the bounds of family, friends and colleagues to a broader society”.The matric results, achieved under difficult conditions, re-affirm that South Africans, as always, are able to find creative solutions”, concludes Matola.endslast_img read more
