… disappointed national discussion was not held firstThe People’s Progressive Party (PPP) Parliamentary Opposition is upset that the Guyana Government discussed with Caribbean Community (Caricom) leaders the impacts of Brexit on Guyana, without having a national discussion on the matter in advance.PPP General Secretary Clement Rohee believes the Government blundered majorly by heading into those discussions with regional leaders without having first met with national leaders.“It is totally wrong and unacceptable for the Government to engage with members of State of Caricom on aCLEMENT ROHEEmatter of national economic importance on which there has been no organised national discussion nor consensus,” Rohee stated during his news conference on Monday at Freedom House on Robb Street.Caricom Heads of State were in Guyana for the 37th Regular Meeting of the Conference of Heads of Government.During the Conference, Caricom leaders received a detailed brief on the political, diplomatic, trade, economic and financial implications of Brexit for the Region as well as recommendations for addressing them.Rohee is asking that these recommendations be made public for a national debate and for it to be brought to parliament for more in-depth discussions.Moreover, Rohee wants the government to activate the parliamentary oversight committee on the security sector and place before it several matters for discussion.He wants the draft Caricom Arrest Warrant Treaty to be placed before the committee for bipartisan consideration.He also wants there to be a review of the Caricom Crime and Security Strategy 2013 and for it to be subsequently formulated into Guyana’s own National Security Plan.In addition, Rohee wants the government’s revised national drug strategy master plan to be brought to the parliamentary committee for bipartisan consideration.

0Shares0000Neymar on the ground next to Zinedine Zidane during the Champions League last 16, first leg between Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain © AFP / GABRIEL BOUYSMADRID, Spain, Feb 26 – Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane has said he takes no satisfaction from the injury that threatens to rule Neymar out of next week’s Champions League last 16, second leg between the Spanish club and Paris Saint-Germain.Neymar hurt his ankle and had to be carried off on a stretcher during PSG’s 3-0 win over Marseille on Sunday. He now faces a fight to be ready for the last 16 clash at Parc des Princes in eight days’ time. Real hold a 3-1 lead from the first leg and PSG’s chances of reaching the quarter-finals will be greatly reduced without their star forward.Zidane, however, said on Monday: “I’m not happy with the Neymar injury and I hope he can be back for the game. I will never want a rival player to be out injured.”The European champions have two La Liga fixtures to negotiate before their crunch meeting with PSG, starting with a trip to Espanyol on Tuesday. They then host Getafe on Saturday.One player hoping to cement his starting spot against PSG will be Gareth Bale, who scored and played 90 minutes in Saturday’s 4-0 thumping of Alaves.“That is what we want, we want to see a 100 percent Gareth,” Zidane said.“The other day he had a great game and scored a goal. The most important thing was his participation in the game and he did very well.”Marcelo and Luka Modric are both out with thigh injuries while Toni Kroos is nursing a knee problem.Zidane declared himself “optimistic”, however, that the trio will recover in time to face PSG but added that an evaluation will be made on Wednesday.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today)
FINN VALLEY boxer Jason Quigley did himself proud but was beaten by defending champion Darren O’Neill in the final of the Senior Boxing Championships at the National Stadium in Dublin this evening.The Donegal man came into the bout as underdog despite some brilliant displays to qualify for his first senior final.O’Neill, a teacher from Paulstown in Kilkenny, is considered one of the hardest and most skilled fighters in recent years. Quigley, in the blue corner, set about his task well but simply could not find a way through the excellent defence of O’Neill who ended the first round 3-0 up.The southpaw increased that lead to 5-1 at the end of the second round as he caught Quigley with a couple of clinical jabs to the head.It looked like it was heading for an easy victory for O’Neill when he caught the Donegal man forcing him to take a standing eight count and making the score 6-1.But referee Freddie Whelan also gave O’Neill a public warning giving Quigley two vital points to make it 6-3. Quigley landed again to make it 6-4 and pressured O’Neill but it was too little too late as O’Neill picked off another point at the sound of the final bell to make it 7-4.Quigley can be proud of himself for his first senior final against an opponent who is vastly more experienced than him.Commentator Mick Dowling praised the Donegal man and said “We will be seeing an awful lot more of Jason Quigley.”EndsFINN VALLEY BOXER QUIGLEY BEATEN DESPITE BATTLING DISPLAY was last modified: February 25th, 2011 by StephenShare 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)

The Donegal GAA team’s adopted musical mascot’s hopes of playing Croke Park has been scuppered – by his musical sidekick.Rory Gallagher, whose song ‘Jimmy’s Winning Matches’ has become a huge hit, was hoping to bring his musical partner Senegal Jimmy back from his Lanzarote base for the All-Ireland Final.The song is number 12 in the iTunes charts and has now been viewed more than 200,000 times on You Tube, was played at Croke Park when Donegal beat Cork last Sunday. But rocker Rory said “I can’t find him and he won’t return my calls. It’s all gotten too big for him.“I’m trying to get him to Croke Park with me and play some gigs in the run-up to the final but he obviously has cold feet.“The ‘Jimmy’s Winning Matches mania has grown too big for him. He freaks out when he plays to more than 30 people and not he realises how big this thing has become,” said Rory.And the Kilcar musician says that if he doesn’t get to play Croker, then he might not see his heroes because he hasn’t got a ticket. “I have already made lots of calls but it’s not looking good. Donegal fans could fill Croke Park themselves. It’s going to be mental trying to get a ticket,” he said.Indeed the hunt for the golden tickets has already reached fever pitch in Donegal – even before they are printed and before Donegal know if they are playing Mayo or Dublin.GAA County Board Secretary Hugh Martin Martin says Donegal should get an allocation of around 13,000 tickets despite the fact that there was 30,000 Donegal fans at Croke Park for last Sunday’s semi-final.“It is going to be a major problem and we are advising fans to try all their contacts as well.“A certain allocation will go to club members but there is obviously going to be a shortfall locally. “If people have contacts throughout the country then we are advising them to explore all those avenues,” he said.RORY’S CHANCES OF PLAYING AT CROKER SCUPPERED – BY SENEGAL JIMMY! was last modified: August 29th, 2012 by StephenShare 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:Croke ParkJIMMY’S WINNING MATCHESRory GallagherSenegal Jimmy

If NFL defensive players had their way, Colin Kaepernick would still be playing in the league.Kaepernick, the former 49ers starting quarterback who in 2016 pioneered the kneeling, silent protest before NFL games, has been a free agent since opting out of his contract in early 2017. Unable to arrange so much as a workout with another team, he is pursuing a collusion grievance against the NFL.According to Bleacher Report, The Athletic surveyed 85 defensive players on 25 teams over the last six …

With one episode of HBO’s “Hard Knocks” remaining, the show documenting Raiders training camp is running out of steam. Even the eminently entertaining Jon Gruden’s act is growing repetitive.As impressive as it may be to some, did we really need to see the Raiders coach counting down from 100 by threes in two different segments of Tuesday night’s show?Knock on wood if you’re with me.(Check that, your knuckles are probably bleeding if you’ve knocked as many times as Gruden has prompted his …
