Washington: In a first, a high school football coach in the US has been suspended after his team thrashed another high school by a whopping margin.A report in BBC said that Plainedge High School’s head coach, Rob Shaver in Long Island, was suspended for one game after violating the local county “lopsided scores policy” as his team defeated South Shore 61-13 in a match which took place on October 25. According to the policy which has been there for three years to prevent poor sportsmanship, coaches have to explain their winning margin to a committee if it exceeds more than 42 points.The victory led to Shaver being called before Nassau County’s “lopsided score committee” who were not satisfied with his failure to substitute his first-team players despite holding a comfortable lead.Shaver is reportedly the first to be punished under the unusual rule. “The spirit of the rule is to prevent better teams from running up on lesser programs and sportsmanship and dignity and all that stuff. I get it. That didn’t happen,” Shaver said in an interview with the Newsday newspaper.However, the head coach of the team which lost by 48 points said he had “no issue with how the game went”. coachfootballhigh schoolschool First Published: November 4, 2019, 12:40 PM IST Get the best of News18 delivered to your inbox – subscribe to News18 Daybreak.

With some of their stars away on national team duty, the Busmen still had more than enough firepower to hold off the Green Archers with Bienve Marañon bagging a brace and Angelo Marasigan also finding the back of the net.The win was Ceres’ 18th in 20 matches—the two other games ended in draws—this season, but Vidakovic said they’re targeting another milestone of finishing the season without a loss.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGreatest ever?

Sergej Milinkovic-Savic allayed fears of his departure from Lazio as he belatedly reported for pre-season with the club, telling fans that he intends to remain at the Stadio Olimpico.The Serbian international enjoyed a stellar World Cup and has been linked with a move away from Rome to join one of a number of big clubs throughout Europe.The 23-year-old midfielder was expected to return to training yesterday, but instead only arrived today at the Clinica Paideia for a medical.

Zlatan wasn’t even the best player in LA! The player’s agent Mateja Kezman later insisted that this was down to a missed flight out of Belgrade, according to Football Italia.When asked by fans outside the facility on whether he would remain with the Biancocelesti, Milinkovic-Savic responded: “Of course I’m staying, do you not see that I’m here?”Lazio head coach Simone Inzaghi previously professed his belief that the €100million-rated (£89m/$116m) star would remain with the club, despite the lure of Champions League football with Serie A rivals Juventus, among others.Other potential suitors include Real Madrid and the Premier League duo of Manchester United and Chelsea, all of whom are rumoured to be willing to meet Lazio’s asking price in the event of a sale.Milinkovic-Savic joined Lazio from Genk in 2015 and has since made 122 appearances for the club, scoring 25 goals.He won his first piece of silverware in Italy in 2017 when he helped them to a 3-2 win over Juventus in the Supercoppa Italiana.He also featured in three of his country’s World Cup games as they narrowly missed out on qualification from the group stages in Russia.Lazio are also fending off interest from Tottenham over star striker Ciro Immobile, though the 28-year-old has stated that he is happy at the club and expects to sign a new contract soon, despite his current deal running through to 2022.Immobile netted 29 goals last season, a feat only matched by Inter’s Mauro Icardi, and has also been linked with a move away to Milan.

NEW DELHI: East Delhi will get its first university campus by 2020 noted a statement issued by the Delhi Government. The Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and Deputy CM Manish Sisodia inspected the construction work of the Guru Gobind Singh Indraprastha University’s East Delhi campus.”The state of the art building would be ready in a few months and it will start its educational operation from the next academic session (2020). The campus will have hostels for both boys and girls,” noted the statement. Also Read – Kejriwal ‘denied political clearance’ to attend climate meet in DenmarkThe East Delhi Campus of the IP University is being built on 18 acre land. The campus will have two colleges, one for design and another for architecture. It will cater to 2,000 students in every batch. “It is worth mentioning here that the new campus was pushed by the AAP government during its first tenure of 49-days in 2013-14. However, the land was not allotted to the government during its tenure then,” the statement of the Delhi government noted. Also Read – Bangla Sahib Gurudwara bans use of all types of plastic itemsIt further observed that during the L-G rule in Delhi, the campus was inaugurated without the land transferred by the DDA. “When the AAP government came back to power in 2015, it again started pushing for the new campus. When checked it came to know that the campus was inaugurated but the land was yet to be transferred,” the AAP-led Delhi government’s statement noted. According to the officials of the government, Deputy CM pushed for the project and ultimately the government bought the land from the DDA for the new campus and after some delay, the work on the campus started. “Now with the continuous push by the Education Minister and support from the Chief Minister, the eastern part of the city will soon get a state of the art campus,” noted the statement. Earlier, at the time of election also the AAP promised that this campus would be built by 2020. On Thursday Delhi CM, Deputy CM and the senior officials visited the site and also monitored the ongoing work. The senior engineers showed a presentation of the work and also discussed the deadline. Earlier the deadline was set as the November this year which was delayed due to various reasons.
In January, Dawson Creek City Council received a report from staff that said it would cost anywhere from $400,000 to $500,000 to convert the lake into a pool, plus the annual cost of operating that could run over $200,000.In a post on Facebook in January, Mayor Dale Bumstead said that council decided to table the motion for consideration at a future date. He explained that the reason the resolution was made is that the City cannot afford up to half a million dollars in upgrades and up to $200,000 in annual costs to operate another pool.The City will make a presentation during the public meeting about the current status of the lake and will take feedback from the public on what to do next with the facility.For more about the public meeting, click here and join the event on Facebook.

29 July 2008The Security Council today extended the mandate of the United Nations peacekeeping mission in Côte d’Ivoire (UNOCI) by another six months, stressing the importance that much delayed presidential elections now slated for November are conducted in a free, fair and transparent manner. The Security Council today extended the mandate of the United Nations peacekeeping mission in Côte d’Ivoire (UNOCI) by another six months, stressing the importance that much delayed presidential elections now slated for November are conducted in a free, fair and transparent manner. In a resolution adopted unanimously, the Council renewed UNOCI’s mandate – and that of the French forces supporting it – through 31 January next year. The 15-member panel asked the mission to provide logistical support to the national Independent Electoral Commission as it prepares to hold the first round of the presidential elections, set to take place on 30 November. It also called on UNOCI to continue its support of the implementation of the Ouagadougou Agreement, the 2007 political accord reached in neighbouring Burkina Faso that aims to reconcile Côte d’Ivoire’s Government and the rebel Forces Nouvelles. UNOCI has pledged to help in the identification process of voters ahead of the elections, which were originally supposed to have been held in 2005 in the West African country. The resolution encourages the Forces Nouvelles and the national Defence and Security Force to develop a joint plan to ensure security at the elections, in consultation with the mission and the French military forces. Ivorian political parties and groupings are urged to make further progress in their reconciliation, including in dismantling militias, demobilizing and disarming former fighters, restoring State authority across the country and registering voters before the polls.
“Ten Stories the World Should Hear More About,” launched today, aims to spotlight UN-related issues or developments that are sometimes overlooked by the media in an age when social networking sites and other forms of new media are changing the ways in which people receive information.Kiyo Akasaka, Under-Secretary-General for Communications and Public Information, said that in today’s densely-packed media environment, where sites such as Facebook, YouTube, Flickr and Twitter are commonplace for many people, DPI tries to draw attention to stories that have important implications – if not always headlines – in different parts of the world.“At the UN, we are deeply conscious of the need to bridge the divide between those who do and do not always have the benefits of the latest technology, but also to participate in the dialogue that is taking place among those who are engaging via new modes of public discussion.”This year’s list, like those of past years, includes stories of both struggles and achievements. It details the neglected emergency of CAR, where tens of thousands of civilians have been displaced by violence, and the struggles of indigenous people in Colombia, where they have faced brutal treatment from armed groups for many years.The other stories include growing concern at how West Africa has become a transit hub for drug trafficking, which is fuelling corruption and instability across the region, as well as details of how the UN is helping with the efforts of port authorities worldwide to crack down on the trafficking of arms, drugs and humans.Meanwhile, the problems caused by skyrocketing food prices last year have only been exacerbated by the global economic turmoil, leaving millions more people hungry, while orbiting debris is threatening the sustainable use of outer space.On the positive front, a UN-backed commission in Guatemala that tackles organized crime is offering a unique form of assistance for a country emerging from conflict, while the UN General Assembly’s adoption of the Optional Protocol to the Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights provides a mechanism for individuals who feel their rights have been curtailed or denied.The other two stories concern the UN’s behind-the-scenes work that helped prevent a potentially explosive crisis in the wake of Kosovo’s declaration of independence from Serbia; and the issue of climate change, where the creation of adaptation strategies has become increasingly important as evidence shows that global warming has accelerated.The list, drawn up in consultation with various UN departments and agencies, does not reflect the full range of issues on the agenda of the Organization and the 10 stories are not ranked in any order.Additional information on all the stories on the list can be found on a special page on the UN website, www.un.org/events/tenstories. 8 September 2009From the struggles of Colombia’s indigenous people to the countless civilians displaced by violence in the Central African Republic (CAR) to United Nations efforts to crack down on the trafficking of arms, drugs and humans through ports, the UN Department of Public Information (DPI) has unveiled its latest list of stories it believes deserve greater global attention.

Mr. Weah met Saturday with the chief of the UN Mission in Liberia (UNMIL), Jacques Paul Klein, who congratulated Mr. Weah for his outstanding commitment and dedication to children affected by the 14-year civil conflict. Mr. Klein also conveyed the UN’s deep appreciation for Mr. Weah’s visit to his home country at a time when peace has finally come to Liberia, but significant challenges remain. Mr. Klein indicated that as Liberia’s most beloved national hero, Mr. Weah would continue to play an important role in inspiring and motivating child ex-combatants to become “useful and productive citizens.” The UN would be ready to assist the young people once they’ve laid down their weapons, Mr. Klein said. “The talent is in Liberia. Liberia is full of wonderful, decent people; they just lack the opportunity,” he said, adding that through the programmes being offered by the UN, young Liberians could acquire education and training to enable them to play a constructive role in the rebirth of the country. Mr. Weah thanked the UN for coming to Liberia’s aid in its hour of need and making it safe and stable. He challenged all Liberians to come together to help the UN in its search for lasting peace, and called on all child combatants to disarm. “Once they are willing, we just need to be prepared to help them after they lay down their arms,” Mr. Weah said, adding, “The UN is taking a good step to help them get back to school.” Mr. Klein and Mr. Weah pledged to collaborate on future projects benefiting Liberia’s war-affected youth.

IN 2006, the Government’s mental health policy A Vision for Change set out its recommendations for reform of the mental health services, and described a principle of “recovery” that should facilitate service users to “learn to understand and cope with their mental health difficulties, build on their inherent strengths and resourcefulness, establish supportive networks, and pursue dreams and goals that are important to them and to which they are entitled as citizens.”The recovery principle as set out in A Vision for Change represents a conceptual challenge to reform of the mental health services. Pointing beyond issues of quality, scope and structure, the recovery principle evokes a new ethos to underpin service delivery.Focusing on the process as instead of the end resultThis is not a type of recovery that depends on eliminating a person’s symptoms. Rather, it is complementary to clinical improvement. It is recovery as a process as opposed to an end result. The recovery ethos is key to the long overdue transformation occurring in mental health services in Ireland.In the 1950s, Ireland had more than 20,000 people in psychiatric hospitals – reportedly the highest per capita rate of psychiatric hospitalisation in the world at that time. In 2010, this figure was around 2,800.The move that is underway aims to enable people to be treated for mental distress in their own community, with the continued support of their family and friends, and with access to psychologists, social workers, occupational therapists and other mental health professionals. However, for this change to succeed, we also need to see a change in mind-set and in approach, which is where the recovery ethos could make a real difference, if embedded in services.Recovery is a very personal process of discovering one’s own strengths, values and aspirations. Many people describe it as a journey, which can take place inside or outside the mental health system, through personal development, through relationships with professionals that are built on partnership, through peer support and through community support.Five pillars to a good quality mental health serviceFor Mental Health Reform, there are five pillars to a good quality mental health service: hope, listening, partnership, choice and social inclusion.Hope: At public consultations held by Mental Health Reform in recent years, people with experience of the mental health services have said that the hopeful attitude of a mental health worker or family member helped them to believe in their own capacity to recover. Listening: People living with a mental health condition come to understand their condition over time, and know what works best for them. They are experts by experience. It is crucial that they are listened to.Partnership: The recovery approach demands equality between mental health staff and people using the services. People have begun to demand the right to actively participate in their own care and recovery.Choice: People want and need choice in terms of treatment, and there must be a range of options available that are more than simply medication, including counselling and psychotherapy, occupational therapy and home-based treatment, among others. Social inclusion: In the words of one person who shared their story with Mental Health Reform, “people need to be more inclusive; people must take responsibility for each other. We all need to be a part of this.” The whole community can play a part in a person’s recovery.Fulfilment of the vision of recovery set out in A Vision for Change will not be possible without adequate funding. The Government must prioritise resources for community mental health services with multi-disciplinary staff, as promised in the Programme for Government. The HSE and professional bodies must prioritise implementation of the recovery principle in A Vision for Change. Finally, society as a whole has a role to play in supporting the recovery approach.Being a participant in your own careIt would be tempting to consider this vision of a recovery-oriented service as ambitious. One could argue that current resource constraints imposed on the public mental health services make such a reform unrealistic. Yet, services that listen to their “customers” are likely to produce better outcomes, as will a partnership model that involves people using mental health services as active participants in their own care.The recovery ethos provides a new role for mental health professionals as facilitators of self-care, rather than sole providers of care. This may be the only way forward –and services that are ready to take on the challenge of the recovery ethos may well be best placed to survive and thrive in the future.Dr Shari McDaid is Director of Mental Health Reform, a coalition of organisations, promoting improved mental health services in Ireland. Dr McDaid is one of twelve national and international speakers scheduled for the 2013 National Mental Health Conference on Wednesday, 13th November at Newbridge Primary Care Centre.

What’s next? Well, we’ll probably go out and kick the heads off France. TO HAVE THE possession you’d normally need to win two games and still come away with a loss is hard to take.Ireland had so much of the play against Scotland and so much of it was good – they made clear line breaks and fashioned so many attacking opportunities in the Scottish half.It was frustrating to see that all go to waste in the last couple of yards.Paddy Jackson distributed the ball well and got the backline moving. He needed to keep the scoreboard ticking over and that was his major failing.To play without a recognised kicker is madness. Paddy didn’t have the trust placed in him, that much was obvious. There was obviously a move in place to kick for the corner when penalties were awarded. They had decided that before the game and he was not allowed to take a couple of kicks on, potentially, his stronger side.Without any debate, they went for the corner.Scotland just hung in there and kept the scoreboard ticking. In fairness to them, they had some tackle count [154 made, 17 missed]. The statistics are insane.Lineout woesThe lineout hasn’t been functioning for the last couple of games and it has really cost us.Scotland used Jim Hamilton and Rob Harley to great effect. On a couple of occasions, if they couldn’t read the throw they just jacked their jumpers up as high as possible.The rule with lineouts, first and foremost, is ‘miss the opposition’. Unfortunately, it isn’t happening and it is our Achilles’ heel at present.Scotland’s Jim Hamilton dominates another lineout. (©INPHO/Dan Sheridan)So much of the scrum is about attitude and Ireland were upset in that regard by the loss of Cian Healy.The cohesion in the Irish front row wasn’t there. Tom Court, when he went under pressure, didn’t want any part of the fight.Overall, only Luke Marshall, in the first half, truly stood out and there was a communal slide in performance that cost us.What Irish team will show up next?Declan Kidney’s time is done. There shouldn’t be a witch hunt but when his contract is up [in the summer], let it be up.Kidney has the responsibility for picking the team but the players have to take their share of the blame.They made great plays for getting into the opposition 22 but completely coughed up scoring chances. At minimum, three tries were butchered. Normally you have to decide which France team is going to show up but at the moment you have no idea what Irish team is going to take to the pitch.Sexton’s hamstringThe only hope ahead of the France game is that we get Jonny Sexton back.Fergus McFadden should have been brought in. This is nothing against Ronan O’Gara; he hasn’t been playing well and Jackson deserved his start.If Sexton misses the France game, a starting place must be found for Madigan (l) or McFadden. (©INPHO/Cathal Noonan)You were going into that game without a recognised kicker. That challenge could have been simply met by playing McFadden, who is comfortable on either wing or in the centre and who’s kicking stats are up near 90%.Would it be fair to drop Paddy Jackson after that, when we knew his kicking has not been up to scratch? I don’t think so.The most sensible option, though, was to pick Ian Madigan but he doesn’t appear to be on Kidney’s radar, unfortunately.*Shane Byrne’s publication, Club Rugby Magazine is available monthly in the Irish Independent.

Source: TicToc by Bloomberg/Twitter By AFP Feb 26th 2019, 4:16 PM Short URL Kim Jong Un waves upon arrival by train in Dong Dang. Image: MINH HOANG NORTH KOREAN LEADER Kim Jong Un and US President Donald Trump have both arrived in Hanoi ahead of their second summit, but the exact location of their meeting is not yet known.The summit is shrouded in secrecy and even as Trump touched down this afternoon there was no official word even on the venue. The two leaders are expected to have an informal dinner on tomorrow before more formal talks on Thursday. The arrival of both leaders created a great stir, with Kim embarking on a two-and-a-half day, 4,000 kilometre odyssey through China by train.Trump’s travel was more conventional, flying on Air Force One in a journey that included a refuelling stop at an RAF base in the UK.In Hanoi, there was some confusion when it was realised that the hotel Kim was to stay in had been double-booked, with the White House press corps also set to be staying in the city’s Melia Hotel. When security started to tighten at the hotel yesterday, reporters were in disbelief that the western press corps was going to be amassed at the same place as the reclusive North Korean leader.It was unclear who booked first but Vietnam’s Foreign Minister said today the journalists were to be relocated to an international media a seven-minute walk away. https://jrnl.ie/4514081 Kim Jong Un waves upon arrival by train in Dong Dang. Second meetingThis second summit will be watched closely for concrete steps that Pyongyang is to dismantle its nuclear programme.After an initial historic meeting in Singapore in June that produced only a vague statement about denuclearisation, analysts say the second date must deliver more in the way of tangible progress.Trump made no comment to reporters on his aircraft but had previously tweeted his hopes for a “very productive” meeting, reiterating that North Korea could enjoy economic riches if it gave up its nuclear weapons. Source: TwitterRelations between the two mercurial leaders have undergone a dramatic turnaround, from flinging personal insults and threats of destruction to Trump declaring he had fallen “in love” with Kim through an exchange of letters.But many North Korea watchers dismissed the Singapore summit as political theatre that failed to produce a concrete roadmap to denuclearisation and stressed the Hanoi meeting must deliver more.“The window for diplomatic progress with North Korea will not remain open indefinitely. The second summit… must emphasise substance over pageantry,” said Kelsey Davenport from the Arms Control Association.Even so, Trump appeared to lower US demands for Pyongyang in the run-up to the summit, repeatedly saying there was no rush to rid the North of its arsenal as long as missile and nuclear tests stopped.“I don’t want to rush anybody. I just don’t want testing. As long as there’s no testing, we’re happy,” Trump said at the weekend.He also hinted more summits could follow the Hanoi meeting, reducing expectations of a dramatic breakthrough in the Vietnamese capital.‘Most memorable’ moment Source: euronews (in English)/YouTubeKim’s epic journey to Vietnam ended at the normally sleepy border station of Dong Dang, where he was met by a military guard of honour in pristine white uniforms. They presented arms as he strolled down the red carpet waving and grinning, surrounded by a phalanx of aides and security personnel.Student Nguyen Thu Uyen who handed Kim flowers on his arrival said meeting the leader was her “most memorable” moment.“Kim Jong Un is very friendly and especially attractive,” she said, after Kim became the first North Korean leader to visit fellow one-party state Vietnam since his grandfather Kim Il Sung in 1964.Kim was greeted in Hanoi by cheering crowds and after a few hours’ rest at his hotel, made a 50-minute jaunt to the North Korean embassy — echoing the summit in Singapore, where he took in the sights on an unscheduled sortie. 23,877 Views ICYMI: Kim Jong Un’s interpreter *really* needed to get off the train #TrumpKimSummit #TicTocTrumpKim pic.twitter.com/dJ9rO4WUoc— TicToc by Bloomberg (@tictoc) February 26, 2019 Image: MINH HOANG After 4,000km trip that included a smoke break in China, Kim Jong Un arrives in Vietnam by train Donald Trump took a more traditional route, travelling on Air Force One.

Etats-Unis : l’ouragan Irène fait 18 morts mais épargne New YorkCe week-end, l’ouragan Irène a déferlé sur la côte Est des Etats-Unis s’attaquant en premier aux Etats plus au sud dont la Caroline du Nord, puis en remontant vers le Canada. Repassé en tempête tropicale, il a atteint New York samedi en soirée, sans faire trop de dommages. Au dernier bilan : les autorités américaines déplorent au moins 18 morts.L’ouragan Irène a fait plus de peur que de mal. Du moins à New York. Ce week-end, l’ouragan qui sévissait depuis plusieurs jours dans les Caraïbes a atteint la côte Est des Etats-Unis, qui avaient déclenché l’alerte maximale et avaient pris des mesures d’évacuation d’une ampleur encore inédite. Irène est arrivée samedi à 13h30 au niveau du cap Lockout en Caroline du Nord. Et bien qu’affaiblie, celle-ci a fait de nombreux dégâts dans les villes côtières où les habitants s’étaient calfeutrés chez eux. Repassé en ouragan de catégorie 1, le phénomène accompagné de vents et de fortes pluies a provoqué des inondations, des chutes d’arbres et a fortement endommagé de nombreuses maisons. De même, il a privé de courant plus d’un million de foyers, en s’attaquant aux installations électriques.A ce jour, le bilan du passage d’Irène fait état d’au moins 18 morts, avec le décès de quatre personnes supplémentaires en Pennsylvanie, dont deux campeurs tués par des chutes d’arbres, rapporte l’AFP. Six autres avaient été tuées en Caroline du Nord, notamment un homme surpris par la chute d’un arbre et une adolescente tuée dans un accident de la route, les feux tricolores ne fonctionnant plus. Dans le Maryland, une femme est morte suite à la chute d’une cheminée. Les banlieues du New Jersey et les campagnes du Vermont ont été les zones les plus touchées, note 20 minutes.fr. New York “s’en est sorti” Plusieurs heures, après être arrivée en Caroline du Nord, Irène a atteint New York, qui s’était préparé au pire depuis plusieurs jours. Le maire Michael Bloomberg avait ainsi ordonné vendredi l’évacuation de près de 370.000 personnes des zones à risque de la ville et avait vivement conseillé aux habitants de ne pas sortir, indiquant que c’était une “question de vie ou de mort”. Toutefois, l’ouragan qui était repassé en tempête tropicale avant d’atteindre la ville, a fait peu de dégâts. Ainsi, des rues ont été inondées dans le bas de Manhattan, dans le Queens et à Brooklyn où des arbres jonchaient les rues des quartiers résidentiels. Et plus de 70.000 personnes ont été privées d’électricité. Mais aucun décès n’a été signalé par les autorités.À lire aussiQuand des Américains assistent à la naissance d’un bébé phoque sur une plage”Certaines parties de la ville sont inondées, il y a de la pluie, mais globalement, je pense que nous nous en sommes sortis”, a indiqué à CNN Joseph Bruno, responsable des services de secours de New York. Dimanche en milieu de matinée, la ville et ses habitants reprenaient vie alors que plus de 10.000 vols ont été annulés et que les transports en commun ont été coupés tout le week-end. Lundi, le maire Michael Bloomberg a ainsi levé l’ordre d’évacuation, permettant à de nombreux Américains de retourner chez eux. Néanmoins, les transports en commun ne reprendront pas aujourd’hui, par mesure de précaution, le temps de vérifier tout le réseau. “Cela va être dur”, a précisé le maire de New York. Près de cinq millions de personnes utilisent les transports chaque jour.Le 29 août 2011 à 09:17 • Maxime Lambert
