The Wright View | Put Nevers in charge of Sunshine Girls

first_img However, the continuing and persistent sidelining of arguably the world’s best netball coach is simply intolerable. Winston Nevers MUST be immediately appointed as a czar of local netball, with the mandate of (a) regaining the position of ‘sometimes third, most times fourth’ (we are now fifth), then moving Jamaica into the realm of challenging the world’s top two teams, Australia and New Zealand, to the pinnacle of World netball. The fact that club teams from around the world are recruiting local talent to their squads underlines the notion that we have the skills. We need a coach who can recognise the strength and weaknesses of opponents and make adjustments DURING A GAME in order to secure a win. We cannot allow the talent and skills of our Sunshine Girls to be humiliated on the world stage because we keep doing the ‘same old, same old’, no matter what the opposition is doing during the game. When the pre-game plan is not working, we have to change the plan. What is so hard about that? Secondly, Netball Jamaica has to target and recruit taller girls to the team. In the recent tournament, our girls were dwarfed by our opponents and the results confirmed our deficiency. If I can paraphrase the words of a previous Prime Minister: “We are just too blessed with athletic ability and talent to be stressed in international competition.” Madam President, netball in Jamaica is down but not out. We can begin to move up and challenge Australia and New Zealand, we need to acknowledge the greatness of Mr Nevers and invite him to take charge. When the Sunshine Girls left Jamaica to play in the Fast5 World Netball Series 2016, expectations were high. Jamaica had performed satisfactorily in the inaugural competition and because of the natural speed and athleticism of the females, moving up the Fast5 ranking seems to be a given. Not so. In the recently concluded competition in Australia, the Sunshine Girls played six matches, won two and ended the competition fifth, beating last-placed South Africa twice – by one single ‘deggeh-deggeh’ point in two tries (34-33). In the other four games, Jamaica never scored 20 goals. Cable television enabled some of us to watch the games. The first game that I watched came as a shock. I checked and rechecked the caption of the coverage because I saw some big girls playing against some small girls. Could I have selected a women against girls practice match? In the games that I saw we were outjumped, outs hot and outcoached. Against Malawi, a team that promised much in the last competition, we were literally mauled. We ended up losing by 46-12, our lowest score of the tournament. The boast of the Sunshine Girls of being the best ranked international team sport in Jamaica is fast becoming hollow, unless the new hierarchy of Netball Jamaica recognises the inadequacies and does something to remedy the situation. We can no longer sit back and bask in the fact that we are the best Caribbean ranked team in netball. Our international standing is fading. There are some good moves initiated by the women in charge of Netball Jamaica. The introduction of professionalism to the local league and the strengthening of parish organisations is good. Giving young, precocious talent in netball the opportunity to travel and play internationally is good. The interest of club teams in England and Australia in local talent is good. Praise is due.

Aldridge’s double-double leads Spurs by Timberwolves

Playing more confident. Hopefully that translates to us being better out there.”Aldridge’s running dunk on a bounce pass from Manu Ginobili gave the Spurs a 100-92 lead with 1:42 remaining.“They deserved a lot of credit for executing down the stretch against a very talented, well-coached team,” Popovich said.Ginobili finished nine points and four assists, including a 3-pointer within a minute of entering the game midway through the first quarter. Ginobili received a huge ovation similar to the one he got in the team’s final game last season when fans were not sure if he would return.Danny Green added 17 points while shooting 3 for 7 on 3-pointers. Green had two 3-pointers in the fourth quarter, both off assists from new teammate Rudy Gay.Gay, who signed with the Spurs after four seasons in Sacramento, had 14 points and five rebounds.Dejounte Murray had 16 points, five rebounds and two assists while starting in place of Parker.TIP-INSWolves: Minnesota’s last victory over San Antonio came April 8, 2014, in Minneapolis.

Patton missed the season opener while recovering from surgery on his left foot.Spurs: Popovich said there is no timetable for Leonard’s return from right quadriceps tendinopathy. … Parker plans on returning in mid-November from a left quadriceps tendon surgery. … San Antonio swept all four games against Minnesota last season, winning by an average of 9.0 points.WELCOME BACKGay, who had not played since tearing his Achilles tendon in January, was glad to be back on the court.“Man, it felt good,” Gay said. “I kind of got emotional in the game just because I’ve been through so much these last couple of months. I’ve been getting so many text messages that motivate me to keep going. It just reminds me of what I’ve been through these last couple of months.”Gay’s opening basket was an emphatic dunk with a minute remaining in the first quarter.MURRAY MOVING ALONGMurray, in his second year out of Washington, had two assists and two turnovers while shooting 7 for 8 from the field in 25 minutes.“He’s playing with much better composure, much more control of the game and directing the team,” Spurs center Pau Gasol said. “But he’s also taking advantage of his athleticism and opportunities.”NO EXCUSES Jake says relationship with Shaina ‘goes beyond physical attraction’ Karl-Anthony Towns of the Minnesota Timberwolves drives between LaMarcus Aldridge of the San Antonio Spurs and Pau Gasol of the San Antonio Spurs at AT&T Center on October 18, 2017 in San Antonio, Texas.

Andrew Wiggins led Minnesota with 26 points and Karl-Anthony Towns had 18.Aldridge had one of his most complete games with the Spurs, two days after signing a three-year, $72 million extension.

Minister Lawrence is wrong about procurement department prior to 2015

first_imgDear Editor,On December 5, a section of the media quoted Minister Lawrence as saying there was no procurement department at the Ministry of Public Health prior to 2015. I can categorically say that Min Lawrence was not being truthful and it lends itself to a recent trend of reckless and irresponsible statements by this Minister.According to former Minister of Health, Dr Leslie Ramsammy, the procurement department began to take shape since 1997 and evolved from there to a fully functional Materials Management Unit (MMU) consisting of planning & procurement, warehousing & distribution, quality control and a transportation mechanism that partnered with regional authorities and other stakeholders, including the military.Minister Lawrence stated that her goal now, was to achieve 70 to 75 per cent availability of medicines in the future, but from 2008 to 2012 we were making 85 per cent non-essential medicines and 100 per cent life-saving medicines available to all 10 regions of the country. This is a metric that was corroborated by our external partners at that time. Therefore, it is only fair to conclude that Min Lawrence is slinging political propaganda and slander to make her Government appear competent.Prior to 2015, the procurement department was fully functional with a Procurement Manager and five supervisors with direct support from our planning department, finance and the National Procurement and Tender Board (NPTAB) guided fully by the Procurement Act and other policies.In 2010, we successfully rolled out the first national and regional public pre-qualification system to select qualified suppliers of medicines and supplies, a feat that could not been achieved without a procurement department. The late Hon Winston Murray praised the procurement department for that achievement in his capacity as a member of the Public Accounts Committee.It is important to note that Min Lawrence was the head of the PAC during most of this time and she was briefed on all our accomplishments as a procurement department, therefore it is very surprising to see her making such reckless statements.It is time this Government understands that they are public servants and not overlords that serve only a part of the country. They have a legal and moral obligation to be transparent to the people.Sincerely,Malcolm Watkins,MS OLFormer ProcurementManager – MOPH& Supply ChainProfessionallast_img read more

Hopefully, we can replicate what you guys have done, although that would be a really uphill task,” Persaud stressed.Journalist Avenash Ramzan, who also delivered remarks at the event, echoed similar sentiments.Enmore Association of New York members pose with some of the invitees“I’m proud to see so many of the older folks here, whom I believe, and a lot of us would agree, are the heroes of this community. You are the reason Enmore is what it is today – you’ve produced doctors, lawyers, teachers, salesmen and you’ve put Enmore on the map, and I think you should all be proud of yourselves and the contributions you’ve made,” Ramzan noted.A raffle was also held and six lucky children won backpacks and school supplies ahead of the new term.The event was made possible through contributions from Sheila Shakoor and family, Steve Kim, Yuri Chandisingh, Elaine McKee, Gavin Anthony, Ravi Etwaroo (Cricket Zone USA), Tina Singh, Aleesha Mohamed, Randolph and Anjanie, Fazal and Shamin Haniff and family, Amar, Salina and Jennifer Prashad, Central Plumbing Specialities, Kim Clarke, Lena Pinto, Geeta Nathai, Art Denson, Prakash and Sirmati Persaud, Balraj Khemraj, Zabida and Romeo Sue, Amna and Jonathan Jagroop, Sam and Safoora Ali, Rennie Bacchus, Abbas family, Seeratan Persaud, Jimmy Baichand, Suresh Persaud, Naresh Persaud, Lawrence Mootoo, Ricky and Sharon Persaud, Hamid family, Ramesh and Lily Lall, Madho Singh, Steve Toor, Jennifer Selberstein, Elegant Hardware of the USA, Nick and Sham and Shano and Julie.The executive members of the EANY (Ayube Mohamed, Debbie Singh, Roupchan Hardowar, Amar Prashad, Surujpaul Singh, Akbar Khan, Rudy Persaud and Prakash Persaud) would like to express immense gratitude to all the donors and wish everyone in Enmore a Merry Christmas and a productive 2019.last_img read more

ALL-IRELAND QUARTER-FINAL: BRILLIANT DONEGAL LEAD ARMAGH AT HALF-TIME IN CLONES

first_imgGAA: Donegal are leading Armagh by THREE points in their All-Ireland quarter-final clash with Armagh in Clones.Davy McLaughlin’s side have been superb and will probably be slightly disappointed not to further ahead considering their dominance in possession. Donegal have been guilty of hitting some bad wide’s in the opening period but overall they’ve been brilliant.McLaughlin’s side are playing fast free flowing football and Armagh are struggling to cope with it.Yvonne McMonagle has been a livewire inside and she scored a superb goal midway through the half.She got on the end of a long ball inside turned her marker and expertly dispatched her effort past the helpless Armagh goalkeeper. Geraldine McLaughlin has pointed some excellent frees and is a constant threat every time she gets possession.Armagh to their credit have hung in there and they’ll be happy enough to only be two points down at half-time.There inside-forward line has been very good and they’ve been a constant threat to the Donegal backline.If Armagh can get the ball inside quicker then Donegal will have their hands full, but so far it has been a really, really accomplished display from Donegal.If they can just improve their shooting in the second-half then hopefully they can book a FIRST EVER All-Ireland Senior semi-final spot.ALL-IRELAND QUARTER-FINAL: BRILLIANT DONEGAL LEAD ARMAGH AT HALF-TIME IN CLONES was last modified: August 22nd, 2015 by Mark ForkerShare 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:Home-page Sportnewslast_img read more
