No stopping Poppy’s Pride

first_imgPOPPY’S PRIDE, to be ridden by Jevanne Erwin for 14-time champion trainer Philip Feanny, should give Super-6 players a perfect start in tomorrow’s opening race over 800 metres straight for maiden two-year-olds at Caymanas Park.The maiden special event has attracted only six youngsters, but POPPY’S PRIDE has looked more advanced than any of his five opponents, galloping three furlongs in 36.2 at exercise on Wednesday morning. The son of Adore The Gold – Bunns Of Steel can be used as a banker following that promising third to BUBBLING KITTEN on his May 23 debut over 600 metres straight. He should lead home the fairly advanced debutante KIMMY’S TRAIN from the stables of in-form trainer Harry Parsard.ROUGH PATRICK, a lightly-raced four-year-old colt who was a beaten favourite behind BLACK BOY over 1400 metres on July 8, will be a lot better for that pipeopener (fourth) and should recoup losses in the second race over a mile.Trained by Colin Ferguson, the bay colt by Legal Process out of Sincerity was returning from a seven-month absence on July 8, and although beaten into fourth place, was only caught and regulated in the last furlong. He has worked fairly well and with connections calling up in-form jockey Paul Francis, ROUGH PATRICK should win from GEORGIAMYLOVE (trip now ideal) and NO MONEY FRIEND in a field of nine.looked well at exerciseANOTHER BULLET, who has looked well at exercise, should make a winning debut for title-chasing jockey Shane Ellis in the third race for maiden three-year-olds again over a mile. Trained by Everal Francis, the bay colt by Nasheet – Wisely Noted looked sharp in a recent exercise spin over seven furlongs, stopping the clock at 1:30.0 to beat stable-companion SHEBIZ, although he can expect worthwhile opposition from the trio of DIAMOND, FIERY PATH and SHIP LODE, ANOTHER BULLET, by virtue of his preparation, should get off the mark immediately in a field of 10.The fourth race over 1500 metres on the Grooms’ Association Day programme looks tailored for ALL FOR THE GLORY, who has been knocking at the door lately..Trained by Andrew McDonald, the four-year-old son of Seeking The Glory has finished second in his last two races, going under in a driving to SEAL THE DEAL over 1400 metres in his previous race on July 8. He now has a glorious chance to release the maiden certificate especially with in-form claiming apprentice Sadiki Blake aboard.ORIGINAL TRAIN (Francis up), who was fourth to SEEKING MY DREAM in the Cal’s Jamaica Derby on June 13, looks the one to beat in the fifth race over 1820 metres, while it should be the down-in-class UNBREAKABLE in the sixth for $180,000 claimers over 1400 metres, following his good third on a $350,000 tag to FORCE DE JOUR over 1200 metres on June 28.FIRST SUPER-6 FANCIES(1) POPPY’S PRIDE(2) ROUGH PATRICK/ GEORGIAMYLOVE(3) ANOTHER BULLET/ DIAMOND(4) ALL FOR THE GLORY(5) ORIGINAL TRAIN/ HOUDINI’S MAGIC(6) UNBREAKABLE/ EL PATRONlast_img read more

Astros, Dodgers connect, riveting World Series onto Game 6

first_imgDodgers ace Clayton Kershaw, meanwhile, has been tagged for a record eight home runs in a single postseason. Gurriel got him in Game 4, and Houston has 13 overall against the Dodgers.Did anyone expect this many at this time in October? Surprising, right?“I guess a little bit, just because both teams are putting up incredible at-bats in the most important times,” Astros manager A.J. Hinch said Monday on a conference call.“I think we realize on the pitching side, both teams are at the very end of their rope,” he said. “Their mistakes are getting hit. But the volume is certainly record-setting, and certainly the intensity of the moments that are ending in home runs is hard to fathom.”Dodgers lefty Rich Hill opposes Verlander in a rematch from Game 2. That night, the teams wound up combining for a Series-record eight home runs, with Houston holding on to win 7-6 in 11 innings.Los Angeles reliever Ross Stripling was among 14 pitchers, seven on each side, who worked in the Game 5 slugfest.“If we can just hold them to less than 12 runs, we can get some wins,” Stripling said.There were 6,105 home runs during the regular season, an average of about 2.5 homers per game. There have been 4.4 per game in the Series.The ball has been flying out of the ballpark all year,” said Justin Turner, whose tiebreaking homer helped Los Angeles win the opener, when the gametime temperature was 103 degrees.“So, no, it’s not surprising. I will say that you might see a little bit different game here tomorrow night, a little bit different weather. It’s going to be a lot cooler here than it was for the first two games, and it might be a different ballgame than you’ve seen in the first five games.” Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

(AP Photo/David J. Phillip)LOS ANGELES — At this rate, Justin Verlander might very well hit his first home run for real.A classically poor-hitting pitcher, the Houston ace knocked one over the wall last week at Dodger Stadium in batting practice. Maybe that bolstered his belief that this batch of baseballs is slick and juiced.ADVERTISEMENT On Tuesday night, Verlander aims to lead the Astros to their first championship when he faces the Los Angeles Dodgers in Game 6 of a power-packed World Series that’s already set the mark for home runs.“We’re just making memories right now,” Astros catcher Brian McCann said, a day after he homered.A total of 22 homers so far, more than 1½ miles of dingers.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSRedemption is sweet for Ginebra, Scottie ThompsonSPORTSMayweather beats Pacquiao, Canelo for ‘Fighter of the Decade’SPORTSFederer blasts lack of communication on Australian Open smogThese nightly episodes of home run derby are connecting with fans, too — in much of the country, they stayed up well past midnight to watch Houston outlast the Dodgers 13-12 in 10 innings at Minute Maid Park, TV numbers showed.With each swing, perhaps this Series really is becoming more riveting. George Springer, Jose Altuve, Carlos Correa, Yuli Gurriel and McCann launched longballs in the Astros’ back-and-forth thriller. Cody Bellinger and Yasiel Puig homered for the Dodgers — seven different players on each side have homered.“This is not going to be finished Tuesday. It’s going to be Game 7,” Puig said.Springer has hit three in the Series. His assessment of Game 5: “Bedlam.”“This is the craziest atmosphere I’ve ever played in, the craziest results, just big hit after big hit, big play after big play,” the Houston leadoff man said.Major League Baseball set a record this year for most home runs in a season and, fittingly, Minnesota leadoff man Brian Dozier began the playoffs with a homer.ADVERTISEMENT View commentslast_img read more

Work recommences at Aurora Gold Mine

first_imgAurora Gold MineGuyana Goldfields Inc has announced the resumption of operations at the Aurora Gold Mines, after workers would have downed tools and initiated strike actions last Tuesday over grievances relating to their unionisation and severance payments.Three days without production has resulted in the non-processing of an estimated 22,500 ounces of gold.On Friday, the Canadian company indicated that persons are returning to work on a phased approach and it is anticipated that full production will resume shortly.“As a result of the three operational days lost, the company estimates that approximately 22,500 tonnes were not processed, however, full-year production guidance remains unaffected at 145,000-160,000 ounces of gold”, the company stated in a release.Dialogue between employee representatives and the Government has been promised along with full compliance to Guyana’s labour laws.Chief Operation Officer, Suresh Kalathil said in a statement, “Personnel are being re-mobilised and the site is ramping back up to normal operations in a phased and safe manner. The company has agreed to a dialogue with employee representatives and Government authorities to resolve any outstanding issues in full compliance with Guyanese labour law.”The company spent much of Wednesday transporting most of its personnel, via aircraft, from Region Seven (Cuyuni-Mazaruni) to the Eugene F Correia Airport.The workers had claimed that they were threatened with having their Wi-Fi cut off which is vital to ensure communication from their Cuyuni-Mazaruni location to family members on the coast.This publication spoke to several workers, including one who revealed what concerns drove the workers to strike.“There were certain concerns raised by those who were contract workers for four years and so on, and they haven’t been given any confirmation. There are cases where some workers are truck drivers and others are utility operators. That means they can operate many other equipment. And they’re paid on the same rate as the truck drivers,” the worker said.Another added, “There were safety concerns being raised. And salaries. People have been working with the company for years and they’ve been advancing and working with other equipment and pay wise, they’re paid at a standard rate”.While the company had said that workers “blocked” the delivery of ore to the mills, the workers explained that staff, in fact, lay on the ground in an effort to prevent the loader from transferring the ore from the stockpile.Matters had escalated on Thursday to a point where the mining company suspended most of its operations.President of the National Mining Workers Union (NMWU) Sherwyn Downer had previously complained that his efforts with the Department of Labour to gain recognition in order to represent Guyana Goldfields workers were being hindered by the company.On the other hand, the company has said that by law, Downer needed the support of 41 per cent of all workers and not just those stationed at Buckhall. The company had also made it plain that it will not allow the union on site to seek that support from workers, but rather, such a pitch must be made away from Aurora.In an interview at the Department on Wednesday, Minister Scott acknowledged the workers’ concern about being unrepresented by a union. He gave the Government’s commitment to ensure workers get their representation.last_img read more

Scott Ford continuing hockey career with South Carolina Stingrays

first_imgThe Stingrays have been playing solid hockey of late and have continued to do so since Ford joined the club. He’s been playing a lot of minutes in key situations and is hopeful the team can stay hot going forward.“I think I’ve been playing pretty well. I’ve kept it pretty simple. They have me playing a lot of minutes here in a shut down role penalty killing and playing a lot of defensive situations for our team. It’s turned out well. We’re 5-1 since I’ve come here. I’m excited to jump on board and help out any way I can. They were on a good stretch before I showed up and we’ve continued to play well and to have some success since I’ve been here and hopefully we can continue that into the break.”The Stingrays are in sixth place in their division but are 8-2 over their last ten games and have a record of 12-10-0-4. Ford and the Stingrays will next be in action tonight and tomorrow for a double dip against the Orlando Solar Bears. After spending the past six seasons with the Milwaukee Admirals Fort St. John’s Scott Ford has found himself a new team after signing with the South Carolina Stingrays of the East Coast Hockey League. Ford and the Stingrays came to an agreement two weeks ago and Ford has since stepped into a leadership role with the club.Ford has played in six games up to this point, registering a point and a plus/minus rating of +1. He’s also accumulated 12 penalty minutes.After kicking the tires around some AHL clubs and overseas, the South Carolina Stingrays got in touch with Ford and it’s been smooth sailing from there.- Advertisement -“I was trying to get an American league deal again and searching for some possibilities in Europe didn’t really come to fruition,” he explained. “I just wanted to play and expressed to my agent and some people in the community in Milwaukee where I was living that I wasn’t satisfied being done playing. It seemed like a good opportunity here and it’s been great so far.”Aside from the obvious positive of getting to continue on with his hockey career, playing in South Carolina has reunited Ford with another Fort St. John product in Braden Pimm.“It’s great having an opportunity to have two kids from our small community playing on the same team is fantastic,” he said. “I had the opportunity last year in Milwaukee to have Braden for ten games at the end of his college season. Having him there at the end of last year was pretty special. To come here and have him here on an every day basis and just seeing his growth and seeing him mature as a player and as a professional has been fantastic so far.”Advertisementlast_img read more

“It’s just so disheartening” – Zimmer’s comments on MMIW draw criticism

first_imgStephen Harper has said no to an inquiry into MMIW, and Greyeyes was asked if funding towards smaller communities would combat this issue if no inquiry will happen. She said:The whole talk about all these inquiries that have already happened – many of those inquiries they talk about have said that there is a need for a national inquiry. We’re moving funding from organizations like NWAC … Those are programs that were put in place to help Indigenous women. I don’t see how moving funding from anything is helping our people or woman, you know? I have to say, I’ve been pretty disappointed with the way things are going – this year, in particular. I had hoped that the national tragedy of missing and murdered women and girls would be on the forefront, really be on the forefront, and I really feel that it isn’t.Greyeyes is now working for Elections Canada, working hard to get people out to vote for the first time.“I think that the time for sitting back and letting things to happen around us is coming to an end. People are motivated,” she said in the interview.“Elections Canada has done a very good job with sending people like myself out to the reserves and First Nations and really rally, and bump up the numbers for voting.”Advertisement She was only 16 when one of her friends first went missing. Police asked for details and if she had seen or heard anything – but she never saw Stacy again.“That really has been with me basically my whole life,” she said. “I’m 44 now. For two thirds of my life, I’ve been wondering where my friend is.”In 1993, her cousin Joyce Marie Cardinal was beaten in Edmonton, doused with gasoline, and then lit on fire. Greyeyes said the damage was so bad, police thought it was a garbage fire at first, and were horrified to find out it was a woman.Cardinal was in hospital for another three weeks before dying.Advertisement She believes the issues at hand – such as MMIW – are helping inspire people to vote.A Sisters in Spirit Vigil to remembered missing and murdered Indigenous women will be held tomorrow night at the Fort St. John Friendship Centre at 5 PM.The full interview can be listened to through CBC Daybreak North here.center_img Connie Greyeyes spoke about Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, in response to Conservative Candidate Bob Zimmer  on CBC’s Daybreak North this morning.Zimmer said on Tuesday night’s debate in Fort St. John that a ‘lack of a job’ was a big factor in the deaths of Indigenous women.One of the major drivers of Missing and Murdered Aboriginal Women is lack of economic activity – or, simply put, lack of a job. We’ve tried things to where we brings economic activity – or jobs – to reserves and other legislation to see that through. Ultimately when people have a job, they’re not in despair – and they can stay on reserve. That’s where we want them to be, we want them to be happy where they live, and go from there with their families. I know a lot of them don’t want to live off of reserve, they want to stay there – and I support that there. We just want them to live happily and healthily.In response to Bob Zimmer’s comments, she said she feels ‘disheartened.’- Advertisement -“As a human being, and as a woman, and as an indigenous woman, I was hurt,” she told Daybreak North. “The families that have contacted me are hurt. I think that these families have been through enough tragedy and trauma to be traumatized over and over again in the media with off-handed comments from candidates like this. It’s so disheartening.”Greyeyes is a member of the Bigstone Cree First Nation in Alberta, and lives in Fort St. John.Advertisementlast_img read more

18 KILLYBEGS BOATS BANNED FROM HERRING FISHERY BY MINISTER – MOONEY

first_imgSenator Paschal Mooney has called on the Minister for Agriculture Simon Coveney TD to allow the fishing fleet out of Killybegs to fish for herring in the Celtic Sea.The Leitrim Senator questioned Minister Coveney at a meeting of the Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture and Fisheries today (Thursday, 19 July) about why his new policy excluded 18 out of 22 pelagic fishing boats in Donegal from the largest herring pelagic fishery in the Celtic Sea.Senator Mooney explained: “As a result of new criteria set down by Minister Coveney for herring fishing opportunities in the Celtic Sea, the Donegal fishing fleet has been denied access. “The criteria are based on providing access to those with a recent track record in herring fishing.  The quota wasn’t fished in ‘track record’ period by vessels the affected as the quota was too low.“This has had a serious impact on the local economy. As a result of the fleet being denied access to the Celtic Sea herring stock, 200 to 300 workers employed in fish processing facilities in South West Donegal will lose several weeks work as no herring is being processed.” 18 KILLYBEGS BOATS BANNED FROM HERRING FISHERY BY MINISTER – MOONEY was last modified: July 20th, 2012 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:18 KILLYBEGS BOATS BANNED FROM HERRING FISHERY BY MINISTER – MOONEYlast_img read more
