first_imgThe ship’s crew tracked down the woman and removed her when the ship docked in Falmouth, Jamaica, according to Blosic.A Royal Caribbean spokesperson released a statement which reads:“Earlier this week on the Allure of the Seas a guest was observed recklessly and dangerously posing for a photo by standing on her stateroom balcony railing with the help of her companion. Security was notified and the guests were later debarked in Falmouth, Jamaica as a result of their actions and are now banned for life from sailing with Royal Caribbean.”On its website, the cruise line explains that “sitting, standing, laying or climbing on, over or across any exterior or interior railings or other protective barriers” is not allowed, for guests’ own safety. A woman was removed from a cruise ship last week and banned for life by the cruise company, after she was seen climbing onto her room’s balcony railing to pose for a photo over the ocean.The incident occurred aboard the Royal Caribbean ship Allure of the Seas, as it was approaching the port at Labadee, Haiti.The unnamed woman was spotted by another passenger, Peter Blosic, who alerted the crew.He says, “While on my balcony, I saw the woman climb on her railing. It happened so quickly. Not knowing what her intentions were, I alerted the crew. If I said nothing, and she was going to jump, that would be horrible.”Blosic posted a picture of the woman wearing a blue bathing suit with her hands over her head on social media.last_img read more

first_imgTHE taxpayer is to be left with a bill of more than half a million euros – thanks to a ‘stupid’ legal challenge against Donegal Sinn Fein representative Pearse Doherty.Mr Doherty had won a legal challenge against the last Fianna Fail government forcing a by-election in Donegal South West last November which he went on to win.Fianna Fail then continued a challenge to the High Court ruling even after the by-election – which the Fine Gael government CONTINUED with…until yesterday when it was taken out of the Supreme Court. The costs of the decision of both governments could run to €500,000.“This case should have been dropped,” said Deputy Doherty.“And it should have been dropped a long long time ago. I asked the new government to drop its appeal and it refused.“The costs will now be picked up by ordinary people.” DONEGALDAILY.COM – DONEGAL’S BIGGEST NEWS WEBSITEADVERTISE FOR JUST €3..click www.donegaldailyclassifieds.com€500,000 BILL FOR ‘STUPID’ COURT CASE AGAINST DONEGAL TD was last modified: October 20th, 2011 by BrendaShare 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:Pearse Dohertylast_img read more

first_imgSport can do the body and mind a world of good and its potential to bring about change in a person or community should not be overlooked. (image: Hoops 4 Hope)Playing sport has benefits that go far beyond the realm of physical well-being. From providing a platform where people can build their social skills to offering an outlet for frustrations and self-expression, sport can help participants to understand the world and the people in it.Sport can do the body and mind a world of good and its potential to bring about change in a person or community should not be overlooked.Hoops 4 Hope taps into this potential. The NPO uses basketball in particular to help youth overcome social and personal issues through its programmes, which run in South Africa and Zimbabwe.Along with its sister programme, Soccer 4 Hope, Hoops 4 Hope reaches an average of 10 000 children each year throughout the two countries. The organisations use soccer and basketball, respectively, to give these children the life skills necessary to beat the odds in communities plagued by poverty and other potential pitfalls.Run from two main offices in Harare and Cape Town, Hoops 4 Hope offers its programmes after school and during school holidays. It gives youth a constructive way to spend their free time, so helping them to avoid being lured by drugs, alcohol or gangsterism. These social ills plague the townships and villages from which many of the children come.Hoops 4 Hope was founded by the acting executive director, Mark Crandall, in 1995. “We’re using the power of sport to develop leaders, to prevent HIV infection, to achieve gender equality, and to help kids make the right decisions before they get into trouble,” Crandall explained.“We provide 10 000 kids a year at our centres in Harare and Cape Town with great role models, a number of whom have come through our programme [themselves]. The new director of our South Africa programme, Gcina Mondi, came up through our programme. He’s been with Grassroots Soccer, an American NGO in Africa, for the past five years.”PARTNERS FOR CHANGEGifted players are able to take part in annual tournaments held to identify promising talent throughout the continent.Through its partnership with Basketball Without Boarders (BWB), Hoops 4 Hope has grown and spread its influence to the most rural areas in the two countries. It has created a channel for some of the youth looking to pursue basketball as option for their future.Since 2006, its links to BWB and the National Basketball League (NBA) in the US have offered an avenue into the professional world of basketball. Gifted players are able to take part in annual tournaments held to identify promising talent throughout the continent.BWB is the NBA’s global basketball development scouting and outreach programme. It partners with entities such as Hoops 4 Hope to create positive change among global youth with the help of current and former NBA and WNBA stars acting as coaches and mentors.Though the partnership with BWB has been beneficial to the organisation in many ways, Crandall said that developing players for the NBA and other professional basketball leagues was never the objective; this was instead a possible positive outcome of the partnership. “The goal,” Crandall said, “is not to create the best athletes, but the best people.”GOING FORWARDRunning a programme that caters to more than 10 000 children in two countries poses its fair share of challenges, be these financial, logistical or just outright exhausting.The NPO, along with Soccer 4 Hope, is always in need of support and welcomes it in any form, be it donations of shoes, equipment, money or time to help in their operations.Anybody looking to support Hoops 4 Hope and Soccer 4 Hope should visit their website for information on how they can play their part in ensuring the sustainability of the programme and the ongoing support of thousands of children in South Africa and Zimbabwe.last_img read more

first_imgUnited Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) Representative in Jamaica, Robert Fuderich, has charged researchers to spend more time analysing data on child-related issues in an effort to solve the many problems that continue to affect Caribbean children. The UNICEF Representative, who was addressing the opening ceremony of the 7th annual Caribbean Child Research Conference on Tuesday, at the Jamaica Conference Centre, downtown Kingston, said that there is no shortage of data on child-related matters, pointing to the numerous research, policy and legal documents that have been presented over the years. He argued, however, that what is lacking is the necessary analysis of such data to find out the root causes behind many of the issues that continue to impact children. “The point is that we are aware of the ‘what’ and we do a good job communicating that ‘what’. What I would like to suggest today, is that in the years moving forward, we need to spend far more time exploring, dissecting and sharing the ‘why’,” he stated. Citing the example of teenage pregnancy, he argued that it is not only necessary to collect and communicate data on the issue, but that “we also have a duty to explain why so many of our children are getting pregnant so young”. He cited a recent workshop with teen mothers, where it was revealed that a cohort of girls from one parish had no other aspiration than to become a mother at a young age. “Because of social norms in their communities, these girls felt that they only had value and worth being a mother and a homemaker and the younger they started, the better,” he said. Mr. Fuderich stated that careful analysis of current data is necessary for the unveiling and understanding of such complex and deeply embedded norms and practices in society. These practices, he said, must be “slowly tackled over time if they are ever to be overturned”. In the meantime, Executive Director, Mona School of Business and Management, Paul Simmons, noted that through the conference, young people are being empowered through research and participation. He said this represented a new paradigm “where not only do we wish to hear from children, but we wish to empower them by facilitating their participation in arriving at solutions to issues that affect them”. The two-day conference, which is being held from November 6 to 7, is organised by the Sir Arthur Lewis Institute of Social and Economic Studies (SALISES) in collaboration with several entities including UNICEF, Planning Institute of Jamaica (PIOJ), Office of the Children’s Advocate (OCA) and the Office of the Children’s Registry (OCR). The main objectives are: to promote a culture of research among students in high schools in the Caribbean; recognise the work of child researchers in child-related research; and disseminate findings from such research. Other speakers at the event will include: Minister of Youth and Culture, Hon. Lisa Hanna; Professor of Child Health, Child Development and Behaviour, University of the West Indies, Maureen Samms-Vaughan; and Professor Emeritus, SALISES, UWI, Neville Duncan.last_img read more

first_imghe St. Elizabeth Parish Council is to receive an additional $3 million to assist in the distribution of water to drought stricken areas in the parish.This was announced by Minister of Local Government and Community Development, Hon. Noel Arscott, at a meeting of the Council on March 21.With sections of the island suffering from drought conditions, concern was expressed by councillors about the availability of water in the farming areas of St. Elizabeth, both for farming and domestic consumption.“The drought situation requires at this time immediate action, so we have been able to find a small sum to assist you within the next two days,” Mr. Arscot told the meeting.He noted that $70 million was made available by the Minister of Water, Land, Environment and Climate Change for the trucking of water nationally, adding that the St. Elizabeth Parish Council received some $4 million late last year for that purpose, but the chronic situation in the parish now requires an additional sum to help in alleviating some of the problems.The Minister said he is also seeking some funds to assist in refurbishing some of the community tanks throughout the parish and to acquire an additional water truck for the parish.Mr. Arscott called on the farmers of the parish to continue to conserve water.Other Councils visited by the Minister include Portland, St. Thomas, Portmore, St. Catherine and Clarendon.By Bryan Miller, JIS Reporterlast_img read more

The Clippers are firmly in the next tier of teams, those projected for roughly between 52 and 55 wins of talent, a group that also includes the Lakers, Warriors (remember them?), Bucks, Nuggets and Jazz.There are also reasons to think that the numbers above are underrating the Clippers’ true power.We’ll put aside questions about whether Los Angeles will really have a barely average defense — the metrics have disagreed with the eye test for years about the quality of Kawhi’s D — and instead focus on what might make these Clippers more formidable in the playoffs. For starters, we’ve added a new feature to CARMELO that accounts for players who routinely improve in the playoffs, and Leonard’s rating gets a major shot in the arm in that regard. Plus, many of the low-rated Clippers in the depth chart above see their minutes fall off in our playoff projection, rewarding L.A. more than most for having an extremely solid top seven in their rotation. Check out how many of their poorly rated players (in pink) see a major drop-off in minutes for the team’s full-strength playoff depth chart: Rodney McGruder6230011-1.1-1.2-2.3 Team total Team total 8Jazz+1.4+3.0+4.352.31615 Landry Shamet02090029+2.0-1.50.6 Rodney McGruder11400015-1.1-1.2-2.3 176ers+2.5+5.2+7.660.01700 Landry Shamet01690025+2.1-1.50.6 Ivica Zubac00002121-1.9+2.30.4 CARMELO’s way-too-early 2020 regular-season rankingsFull-strength regular-season rankings for the Top 10 2019-20 NBA teams according to FiveThirtyEight’s CARMELO player projections and current depth charts 240+6.4+1.07.4 7Nuggets+3.9+0.6+4.552.61618 Patrick Beverley25000025+0.7+0.31.0 3Lakers+1.8+3.6+5.554.91643 10Pelicans-0.1+2.7+2.648.01572 6Clippers+4.6+0.6+5.354.21635 Terance Mann014005-1.7-0.6-2.3 4Warriors+2.7+2.6+5.354.51639 Dear NBA Diary,Well, so much for the speculation that Kawhi Leonard would join the Los Angeles Lakers (or stay with the Toronto Raptors). After the Los Angeles Clippers stunned the NBA by signing Leonard and trading a massive haul of picks for Paul George, everybody is still trying to figure out exactly what just happened to the NBA in the wee hours of Saturday morning.For starters, the Clippers vaulted themselves into the championship conversation thanks to the superstar combination of Leonard and George, plus the solid group of complementary players L.A. mostly retained around them. Here’s what our CARMELO projections (and depth-chart algorithm) think of their full-strength regular-season roster: EXPECTED MINUTES PER GAMEPLAYER RATING Montrezl Harrell00012223+0.8+0.71.4 Team ratings have not yet been rescaled to account for an average offensive and defensive rating of 0.0.

Patrick Beverley25000025+0.6+0.30.9 240+4.6+0.65.3 That projected CARMELO rating of 1635 would be good for about 54 wins per 82 games, and it ranks sixth in the NBA. On the one hand, that’s a huge improvement over last season, when the Clippers finished with a 1496 CARMELO that ranked 17th in the league. Then again, it also might sound underwhelming compared with early reports that Vegas bookmakers had shifted their odds to make the Clippers 2020 NBA championship favorites.But in terms of regular-season projections (using full-strength rosters),1But excluding players such as Kevin Durant who are known to be injured for all or most of the 2019-20 regular season. things are just very wide-open at the top of the league right now: 2Rockets+5.5+2.2+7.859.81698 Expected wins:54.2 CARMELO team rating:1688 Terance Mann000000-1.7-0.6-2.3 PLAYERPGSGSFPFCTOTALOFF. +/-DEF. +/-TOT. +/- 5Bucks+2.1+3.2+5.354.51638 EXPECTED MINUTES PER GAMEPLAYER RATING Keep track of the chaotic NBA offseason with our Free Agency Diary.
