Trojans happy with tournament run

first_imgNBS 2nd division 40-over tournament…Lightening doesn’t strike twice in the same place. That is what the University of Guyana Trojans would be trying to comprehend, having faced the Demerara Cricket Club (DCC) last weekend in keen competition at the DCC ground, and again failing to secure a spot in the final of the NBS 2nd division 40-over cricket competition.UG Trojans in one of their matches in the NBS 2nd division tournamentSpeaking with Guyana Times Sport, captain of the UG side, Melroy Stephenson, had this to say: “We played a good tournament for the most part. As a team, it was a tough pill to swallow, and we still haven’t discussed what transpired on that day itself. In due course we will do such, and think of ways in which we can continue to develop and improve our cricket. Ultimately, we would love to win another GCA title in the foreseeable future.”Stephenson described Ershaad Ali as a revelation throughout the tournament, in addition to Omesh Danram. Their play ultimately earned the UG side a spot in the Cricket Guyana Inc franchise setup, representing East Bank Demerara and Georgetown respectively.At the beginning of the match, the toss favoured the student side, who inserted the Queenstown-based side to bat. At the end of the allotted 40 overs, DCC managed to rack up 283-6, a worthwhile total to defend.Scoring for DCC was national under 19 player Sachin Singh, who made a well composed 66 and was ably supported by Alphius Bookie, who contributed 52, and Raymond Perez, who made a quick-fire 55 not out.Bowling for the student side was Nicholas Bollers, who claimed 2-59 from his seven overs; Dennis Heywood, who impressed with 1-26 in his 8 overs, and Damion Vantull, who chipped in with 1-48 from eight overs.Facing the monumental task of scoring 284 for victory, the Trojans crumbled meekly under the excellent bowling of DCC, succumbing to a meagre 121runs scored in 29.5 overs.Putting up resistance for the Trojans was Ali, who continued to impress throughout the tournament with a fighting 49. Picking up wickets for DCC was junior Windies player Ashmead Nedd, who bagged 5-31 and was supported by Dennis Squires with 3-17.This duo literally spun the DCC into the finals, where they will now have to face Georgetown Cricket Club at the DCC Ground on October 6 in the grand finale.last_img read more

Sudan’s first ever women’s club football league begins

first_imgThe first club match was played between Tahadi and Difaain in the capital on Monday. Matches are also scheduled for Madani, Al-Obeid and Kadugli.“Civilian rule, Civilian rule,” chanted the crowd as the first match between the two teams began.Crowds clapped and whistled, with many also chanting “Kandaka, Kandaka,” referring to ancient Nubian queens.The match was attended by Sudan’s new Minister of Sport Wala Essam and some Sudanese and foreign diplomats.“This is a historical game not only for women’s sport but for Sudan,” Essam told reporters.“We will give special attention to women’s sport and women’s football.”The start of the women’s club football league comes amid expectations that the current three-year transition period will see liberal policies implemented across the country, including measures to promote freedom of speech, women’s rights, sport and arts.Sudan joined FIFA in 1948. In 1957, Sudan co-founded the Confederation of African Football with Egypt, Ethiopia and South Africa at a meeting in Khartoum.But women’s football has faced an uphill fight since the country adopted Islamic sharia law in 1983, six years before Bashir seized power in an Islamist-backed coup.Bashir was ousted by the army in a palace coup on April 11 on the back of nationwide protests against his iron-fisted rule.A new joint civilian-military ruling body, called the sovereign council, is governing of the country for a transition period of 39 months.The 11-member council has six civilians including two women.0Shares0000(Visited 5 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Women trained in Khartoum in August in readiness for the kick off of the women’s league © AFP/File / Jean Marc MOJONKHARTOUM, Sudan, Sep 30 – Sudan’s first ever women’s club football league kicked off Monday, with two teams clashing at a Khartoum stadium as crowds of fans and diplomats cheered.The championship, which involves 21 clubs, would have seemed unlikely just months ago when long time Islamist ruler Omar al-Bashir was in power.last_img read more

EMMET RUSHE: HOW TO WRITE YOUR OWN WORK-OUT PLAN

first_imgBY EMMET RUSHE: One of the most common questions that I get asked within the fitness community and by gym goers is; ‘What is the Best programme?’ When you get to a level where you are comfortable with free weights and finally decide to try a program for the first time, most people will turn to fitness magazines or You Tube or their favourite bodybuilder for ideas.The problem with most of these is they are not suitable for you. If you have just reached a level where you are comfortable with free weights, most of the programs that you will come across are either;1: Too advanced.2: Too complicated.3: Complete Rubbish.The program doesn’t have to be complicated, overly advanced and it should target the full body over the week.Just know that the body-part split-days that is the norm in gyms is not ideal. These types of splits; arm day, leg day, chest day etc., were championed by bodybuilders and have been shown to be inferior to splits that work body parts 2-3 times per week.When starting with free weights, it is important to start with a proper foundation.This should be based on large muscle groups and each exercise should work more than one muscle per time…….say what now???Don’t worry; I am going to lay down a few ways for even the newest member of a gym to get started.Everyone has body parts that they want to focus on.For men, it is usually chest and biceps.For women, it is usually arms, hips and thighs. When people dip their toes into the weight training waters, these parts are what most beginners usually work on and they end up neglecting everything else.I advise new gym-users to work on the full body and do it 2-3 days per week……..Yep! 2-3 days per week!The way it works is as follows.A session should include:one exercise for the Quads (front of the thighs)one exercise for the Hamstrings(back of the thighs),one for the Back,one for the Chest/Shouldersone Scapular prehabone for the Core.Altogether this gives us 6 exercises to put together to make up a full routine.The way that you progress this will be through manipulating sets and reps.At the start, the program can be an upper/lower split and this would progress each week as an;A-B-A, B-A-B style of progression. So it would go;Week 1:Workout 1 – Workout 2 – Workout 1Week 2:Workout 2 – Workout 1 – Workout 2This can be progressed to an Upper/Lower/Full body routine later on.At the start I like to go with the Upper/Lower style of programming as it gives the person less exercises to remember.The exercises will also be in an 1A, 1B – 2A, 2B etc.What this means is that when you do your first exercise (A1), after you rest, you do your second exercise (A2).This continues for the number of required sets and then you move to your B1-B2 exercises.The reason for this is longer rest periods between exercises and you also save time in your session.Workout 1:1A) Bilateral Hip Dominant (Deadlift)1B) Vertical Row (Lat Pulldown)2A) Split Stance (Split Squat)2B) Horizontal Press (Incline Bench Press)3A) Scapular Prehab (Prone ‘T’)3B) Core (Plank)Workout 2:1A) Quad Dominant (Goblet Squat)1B) Horizontal Row (Seated Cable Row)2A) Single Leg (Step Up)2B) Vertical Press (Shoulder Press)3A) Scapular Prehab (Face Pull)3B) Core (Side Plank)The actual exercises that you choose should depend on your level of experience with them.They can be regressed or progressed as needed; it doesn’t really matter so long as you are working the required body part.This type of programming allows you to work each body part 2-3 times per week depending on the body part.Some are worked each session as they are stabilizing or supplemental in other exercises.As for rest, reps and sets; for starting out I would work around 3 sets for each exercise.For the larger muscle groups (1A-1B) I would use 90-120 sec rest, for the others 60-90 seconds, depending on how you recover is plenty.For reps you can work between the 8-12 rep range.Start lower with the larger muscle groups and work slightly higher with the others.This can be adjusted weekly, Bi weekly, monthly, every 6 weeks, however you need.Just know that there is no ‘best’ way to do this, if you find that you are getting progress, stick with it and then change it when this slows.As with any program, please ensure that you have a qualified person show you the proper technique for each exercise.If you have any question on starting weight training or for getting a tailored program based on your starting point, contact me through the link below.#TrainSmarthttps://www.facebook.com/pages/Rushe-Fitness/120518884715118EMMET RUSHE: HOW TO WRITE YOUR OWN WORK-OUT PLAN was last modified: August 10th, 2015 by John2Share 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:emmet rushefitness columnhow to writeplanwork out planlast_img read more

ATHLETICS: COUNTY CROSS COUNTRY RESULTS – UNDER 8S

first_imgA lovely dry and sunny day made for perfect conditions for cross country running, with 328 juvenile athletes taking part, our biggest field of runners for several years.  Well done to all the clubs from across the county that took part (the majority of clubs represented today) and a special word of thanks to Omagh, Olympian and Enniskillen for their participation and contribution to a good day’s athletics.  Well done and thanks to the Finn Valley club for their hosting of the event, with everything running smoothly, and the full programme of 14 races run off in under three hours.Next week, it’s the turn of the Uneven Ages and Novice Cross Country Championships which will be held in Fintra, Killybegs, with a 12pm start. Hopefully the big numbers turning out today will be out in force again next week.  With the Ulster Championships for these same age groups and Novice being held at the same venue in a few weeks time, the opportunity to get a race over the course next Sunday will no doubt be beneficial to those looking to make an impact at the Ulsters.

Lee Strobel’s The Case for a Creator Debuts on Film

first_imgA film version of Lee Strobel’s book The Case for a Creator has been released by Illustra Media.  The book, third in a series of best-sellers by Lee Strobel (The Case for Christ, The Case for Faith) describes Strobel’s own journey from atheism to Christianity and how Darwinian had evolution played a big part in his youthful rejection of religion.  Strobel interviews various scientists and theologians who explain the evidence for intelligent design from the cosmic to the atomic, from galaxies to cells.    Incorporating footage from Illustra’s highly-successful ID films Unlocking the Mystery of Life and The Privileged Planet along with new interviews, animations and subject matter (such as the fossil record) The Case for a Creator packages a wide variety of creation evidences into a one-hour package centered around Strobel’s spiritual quest.  One reviewer wrote, “This DVD is excellent.  It is just as high quality, if not more so, than the other Illustra productions.  It basically smashes Unlocking, Icons, and Privileged Planet into one disc.  It’s a wonderful resource.”  Access Research Network says, “As with previous Illustra Media documentaries, this one is chock full of stunning graphics, amazing animations, and a theater-worthy soundtrack.”    The DVD also contains bonus features with lists of additional resources.  Of special interest is a series of frequently-asked questions, answered in short interviews by by the scientists and theologians seen in the main film.  Click here for the producer’s film page.This DVD makes a convenient witnessing tool.  The prior three films mentioned above are all still excellent and go into more detail in their respective subjects.  But for people not willing to watch three hours of video, The Case for a Creator brings most of the best arguments together into a single, attractively-produced hour-long package.    Though some of the animations will look familiar, the film includes new animations of ATP synthase and other molecular machines, an enhanced look at the universe-generator from The Privileged Planet, a dramatic visualization of the precision of the gravitational constant, and more.  Viewers will get a kick out of the “monkey-typewriter” segment.  The story line revolving around a true testimony of a skeptic investigating the case for a Creator may make this film resonate with more viewers than one strictly about science.  Anything Illustra produces carries with it a reputation of production quality and content credibility unsurpassed in the field of creation/ID graphical media.  Get a quantity of these DVDs and start handing them out.(Visited 8 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Geldenhuys stars at Msunduzi Challenge

first_img29 October 2013Francois Geldenhuys did the double in his age category by winning the time trial on Saturday and the road race on Sunday at the 2013 Msunduzi Road Challenge in the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands.The conditions in the UCI World Cycling Tour event were favourable compared to Saturday’s strong winds, and the pace of the front runners was fast, with a number of breaks occurring along the route, which split the field into a number of smaller bunches.The pressure being applied from the riders was evident, but with qualification for the 2014 UCI World Cycling Tour Finals up for grabs everyone was keeping their cards close to their chests and jostling for places in their age groups, rather than focusing on overall position.‘Racing to qualify’“There was a bit of negative riding early on,” Geldenhuys, who won the 30-34 age category, said afterwards. “The guys that were specifically racing to qualify held us up a bit, but when I managed to get free I felt a lot more comfortable.“I have been doing a lot of mountain biking and I could feel that my training there really helped me today and gave me that extra bit of power that I needed.“It was great to come all this way and take two wins from two, I’m really happy,” he added.Fastest timeGeldenhuys claimed the fastest time of the day when he edged out 16-29 age category winner Adolf Krige by 47 seconds. Krige felt that he produced a great race and with the help of his team mate, Lionel Moolman, he managed to fend off a late attack from local man Kevin Benkenstein.“It was a really hard course, but the race was great and I am happy with how it turned out for me,” Krige said happily.Johannesburg resident Bruce Diesel had enough in the tank to hold off a last gasp effort from Alan Henry and Martinus Scheepers to take the title in the men’s 45-49 age category. It was one step up the podium for Diesel, who had finished second in the Time Trial.‘Two substantial climbs’“It was a pretty tough race with two pretty substantial climbs, but we got away on the second climb when the group broke up into six riders,” he explained.“The sprint was pretty tough at the end because I was quite tired from yesterday, so it was great that I had enough in the tank to win my age category.”With a trip to Slovenia on the cards Diesel is hoping that a shot at the MTB World Marathon Championships might also be a possibility.“It could be a really busy year for me next year and if all goes to plan I should get a lot of competitive riding done,” he said.Women’s raceIn the women’s race, Junita Venter produced a dominant display to cross the line first in 03.09.49, which gave her the double after she was the fastest during the Time Trial on Saturday.Pauline Cound, a former world champion and the future mother-in-law of Tour de France champion Chris Froome, managed a second place in the combined women’s 109km race and was pleased with her performance.“It was a really tough race today and I battled on the climbs, but I was happy with how I went,” she said.In the men’s 80km race Johan Spies produced the fastest time to take the 60-64 age group one second ahead of Bobby Nefdt.WINNERS109km 16-29 Male: Adolf Krige 03.01.4930-34 Male: Francois Geldenhuys 03.01.0235-39 Male: Trevor Rowe 03.04.2140-44 Male: Austin Steyn 03.03.5245-49 Male: Bruce Diesel 03.03.5550-54 Male: Jackie van Eeden 03.04.5555-59 Male: Mark Beneke 03.04.55Female: Junita Venter 03.09.49 80km  60-64 Male: Johan Spies 02.24.1965-69 Male: Peter Allen Haupt 02.36.0770-75 Male: Jan van den Berg 02.30.1075+ Male: Michael Smith 03.08.1755+ Female: Dionne Birkett 02.56.57 SAinfo reporterlast_img read more

Codex Sinaiticus: The World’s Oldest Bible Goes Online

first_imgA Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Related Posts The Codex Sinaiticus is the oldest version of the Christian Bible in book form, and, according to many scholars, one of the world’s greatest written treasures. The actual leaves and fragments from the book are in the British Library in England, as well as in various archives in Germany and Russia, and the St. Catherine’s Monastery of Sinai, where the text was originally discovered. Starting today, however, anybody with access to an Internet connection and a modern browser can now see a virtual facsimile of the book online.While large parts of the text are still missing (including most of the text of Genesis), this marks the first time that such a complete version of the Codex has been available to both scholars and the public. The site is currently quite slow, thanks to some heavy demand right after launch, but we got a chance to test the site while it was still running smoothly. One nice aspect of the project’s web site is that it was built with open standard and modern web development techniques in mind. frederic lardinois Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Tags:#news#NYT#web Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting As these projects typically take years to come to fruition and have to conform to pretty stringent accessibility and long-term storage standards, their web sites often also look like they were developed five years ago.
