After an upsetting loss against No.16 Michigan, No. 15 Wisconsin (16-4, 5-3 Big Ten) bounced right back to take home an exciting win Sunday afternoon at the UW Field House. The Badgers showed improvement in every area on the court and topped the match off with an incredible energy that the No. 5 Michigan State Spartans (17-3, 6-2 Big Ten) could not compete with.Determination is what freshmen setter Lauren Carlini said brought home this big win against such a talented team.“We knew we had to prove ourselves after our loss the other night and we were hungry for it today. The game definitely becomes a lot easier when you have energy on the court, so it was really a lot more fun today.”Wisconsin’s serving was critical in helping them take home the win. Despite getting aced a season-high six times, the Badgers aced the Spartans four times and forced them out of their offense multiple times with tough serves. Along with the aces, service errors brought down the Spartans as they recorded 13 errors, compared to nine for the Badgers.“In this conference you have a lot of opportunities to get knocked around and you have a lot of opportunities to do the knocking around as well,” head coach Kelly Sheffield said.We can win with really good serving and really good ball control, knowing our assignments and being very tough and hard-nosed defensively. I thought we were great in all those areas and that’s why we were able to come out with a win.”Junior Courtney Thomas knew serving played a big role in the win as well. “We were serving and serving and taking their hitters out. We knew who they were going to set to because of who was passing.”The Badgers are also taking on a whole new identity this year, bringing out strengths no one knew they had.“We’re trying to establish some type of identity with this team,” Sheffield said. “Every team, every year is establishing some type of identity and we think we are probably a blue collar, grind it out team. I mean, who are we kidding? That’s this school, this state. You think of the great teams and the great sports over the past and that’s kind of been their personality, and we’re trying to take that personality on ourselves.”The Badgers strong service and amped-up energy also helped keep the Spartans at a .000 hitting percentage in game three.“Just balling out,” Senior Annemarie Hickey said is what kept the Badgers on their A-game.“Going for every ball, giving an effort for everything and just knowing Lauren is going to be there to set the ball. [Michigan State] is a great hitting team, we just wanted to go in there with a defensive mentality. Saying they are going to get their kills but we don’t want to get frustrated. We are going to keep setting out, keep getting those digs for our hitters to hit.”The strong service got the momentum rolling in Wisconsin’s favor and brought intense rallies that ended in their favor. Carlini knew that this momentum would work to their advantage.“We know that as those plays are going on, the momentum is switching. Whoever wins the point at the end of that is going to get that swing of momentum,” Carlini said. “For the most part we were on the winning side of those, that really helped going on to the next few points.”With their aggression coming through to the other side, the Badgers took home an exciting win, upsetting the Michigan State Spartans.“We served aggressively but we also executed and that’s one of the things we talked about,” Sheffield said. “There is carelessness behind the serving line … and then there’s executing tough serves and tonight we did both of those.”

NDBA president Larry Martel said the diamond is getting renovated, much like the project that was completed last year at Lion’s Park in Uphill.The diamond will be redone along with a fence erected in right field — the new Blue Monster.Crews have been busy removing the old grassed in ball diamond as well as stripped the vegitation from along the outfield banks.Martel said work should be completed by mid-September with the field ready for the first pitch in the spring of 2015. There’s something happening at Queen Elizabeth Park in Fairview — and it’s not a player belting out a grand slam home run.But it’s close.The Nelson and District Baseball Association home park is getting a facelift.
He’s a quick, highly effective ahead, who likes to face out always and voracious when he steps on the rival space. A headache for any protection. His statistics, not surprisingly, have additionally attracted the consideration of the Spanish staff: he was known as by Julen Guerrero for the U-15.Subsequent 12 months, when the competitors resumes, will turn into the nice reference of the first Cadet of Madrid. In La Rojita his place is in the U-16, though the aspiration of the younger striker is to sneak into the squads of the U-17 (one 12 months older than him), who in 2021 has a World Cup qualifying Euro forward. It’s troublesome, though in the event you keep that sense of aim you can not rule something out … Iker Gil (Zaragoza, 2005) is the aim man for the Actual Madrid youth staff. Earlier than any presentation, it’s higher to let the numbers communicate for him: he arrived in Valdebebas in 2017 and in simply three seasons (the latter incomplete attributable to the coronavirus) he has scored 120 targets. Crack statistics.Trying again, Gil began scoring targets in groups from his metropolis, Zaragoza. La Muela, Oliver and La Amistad noticed him pierce the nets from a younger age earlier than he took the first leap of his profession: He entered the Zaragoza quarry in 2015. There he maintained his development, which aroused the consideration of Actual Madrid.Arriving in Valdebebas didn’t weigh him down and he paid off from the starting: 33 targets in 24 video games as Infantil B (to which I’d add two extra in the Champions Cup). It was solely his letter of introduction, as a result of in the second marketing campaign as a Actual Madrid participant he fully uncovered himself: 51 targets in 24 duels (greater than two per sport). This 12 months, earlier than the break, he had 32 targets in the 18 video games performed with Cadet B. The change in class didn’t alter him.
MAN CITY 1, SOUTHAMPTON 1 HOPES DASHED Any hope Mourinho had of this game being a contest ended after 30 seconds. A speculative long ball from Marcus Alonso drifted past hesitating defenders Daley Blind and Chris Smalling and landed at Pedro Rodriguez’s feet. United goalkeeper David de Gea was already committed far from his goal line at the edge of the penalty area, and Pedro nipped around him and put the ball in the net. It was another mistake by Smalling that allowed Chelsea to extend their lead in the 21st. A Chelsea corner was flicked on at the near post by United’s Antonio Valencia, then hit teammate Ander Herrera before the lethargic Smalling allowed Cahill to evade him, and the Chelsea defender netted via Blind’s back. Eden Hazard started the incisive move that ended with a third goal just after the hour. N’Golo Kante then squared to Nemanja Matic, who returned the ball for Hazard to turn Smalling before dispatching the ball into the corner of the net. There was worse to come for Mourinho in the 70th. Pedro, who started the rout, set up Kante to complete it. Kante waltzed through United’s brittle defence with ease, going past Smalling – who else? – before slotting beyond de Gea. Antonio Conte was savouring such an emphatic score that lifted Chelsea to fourth, with exuberant celebrations next to Mourinho. Mourinho, who was fired by Chelsea for a second time last year, was incensed by the conduct of his permanent successor. “You shouldn’t celebrate like that when it’s 4-0,” Mourinho reportedly told Conte after the game in comments picked up from television footage by Italian media. “You can do so at 1-0, otherwise it’s humiliating for us.” Neither manager disputed the account, but Conte defended his conduct. “If we want to cut emotion, then we can stay at home and change our job,” Conte said. Mourinho, meanwhile, declared himself “delighted” with everything apart from the “mistakes”. John Stones’ attempt to pass to Vincent Kompany, instead, managed to set up Nathan Redmond for Southampton’s opener in the 27th minute. City only had their first shot on target 10 minutes into the second half, although Kelechi Iheanacho did make the most of it by equalising. “I know when you start (at a new club), it is always difficult,” said Guardiola, who began work at City in July. “We start quite well. Now, in that moment, we are not in that rhythm we had before. We didn’t have 90 bad, bad minutes, but when we are not perfect, we concede a lot.” LONDON (AP): When Jose Mourinho and Pep Guardiola meet in their second Manchester derby on Wednesday, they’ll now have something in common. Both have prepared with humiliating 4-0 losses on their return to former clubs. After Guardiola’s Champions League embarrassment at Barcelona with Manchester City last Wednesday, Mourinho saw his Manchester United side brutally taken apart by Chelsea in the English Premier League yesterday. Before United’s collapse at Stamford Bridge, City experienced another of their Premier League setbacks with a 1-1 home draw to Southampton. One of either teams’ trophy quests will end on Wednesday when City and United meet in the League Cup. The Premier League is the priority, though, and City are top of the standings on goal difference despite their setback, while United are six points back in seventh.
The Guyana Telephone and Telegraph Company (GTT) cell site tower at Diamond, East Bank Demerara, collapsed in the wee hours on Friday, causing disruption to mobile customers in the area.The damaged GTT towerA release from the telephone company stated that the tower came crashing down at about 03:00h during bad weather conditions.Up to late Friday afternoon, the company was still assessing the damages, but they have confirmed that no one was injured because of the incident. This had, however, caused a traffic build-up along the East Bank corridor.Members of the Guyana Police Force worked to ensure that there was an easy flow of traffic. As such, commuters were urged to proceed with caution since one of the lanes was blocked as a result of the collapsed tower which ended up on the roadway.The telephone company is already in talks to reconstruct the tower and is working assiduously to restore mobile service to its customers.
…as influx of thousands of Haitians for 2019 alarmingly suspiciousOne of the Georgetown hotels where Haitian immigrants were tracked to by this publication on TuesdayOpposition Leader Bharrat JagdeoReports of over 8000 Haitian immigrants entering Guyana for the year but only a handful leaving and concerns relating to collusion with Government officials have prompted calls by Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo for investigations into the immigration department and the General Registration Office (GRO).According to Jagdeo, the People’s Progressive Party/ Civic has for some time expressed concerns over the large influx of Haitian immigrants and reports that they are being helped and chaperoned by persons connected to the Government.He alleged that the surge of immigrants and the ongoing House-to-House Registration being conducted by the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM) are more than mere coincidences. Jagdeo compared the number of Haitian immigrants arriving and departing from Guyana over the past few years.“For a while now we have been speaking about the massive influx of foreign nationals. We believe a lot of it is for people’s smuggling, that it is a very lucrative, criminal enterprise. But recently, after the passage of the No-Confidence Motion, we saw a surge in the numbers. This surge has to do something with the registration process that is going on now,” the Opposition Leader said.He added, “If you look at the numbers that we have, in 2013: 188 persons came and 99 departed. In 2014: 227 came and 113 departed. In 2015: 770 came, 136 departed. In 2016: 722 came, 451 departed. (In) 2017: 3,515 came 291 departed. Up to April 30, 2018, we had 1, 238 came and 85 departed. So this headline today is a shocking one. In the first seven months of the year, 8,600 persons came in. And we gather less than 25 departed”.ProbeThe former President went on to call for investigations into the General Registration Office (GRO), which falls under Citizenship Minister Winston Felix, as well as the Immigration Department. Jagdeo was sceptical that these large numbers of immigrants could pass unbeknownst to these officials.“When you come into Guyana, they have to fill up an immigration form. And it says intended address. I’d like to see what these 8,600 placed on their forms to say where their addresses are. You can’t have every day, every two days, people putting on their address Sunflower hotel, when the place has maybe 25 rooms and 80 will say they’re living there every two days”.Clearly, he added, there has to be some collusion with some official at immigration.“They must have seen this pattern every single day. This is more than hotel rooms they have. That alone should say to immigration, you’re coming to Guyana, you don’t have an intended address, it should raise a red flag. But nothing has happened”.Last year, the Citizenship Ministry had revealed to the Foreign Affairs Committee of Parliament that over 22,000 persons entered Guyana from January to April. The Ministry had revealed that of this number, only 6, 170 had departed. In addition, it was shown that there are no records of 17,615 immigrants departing from 2013 to 2018.Back in March of this year, it was revealed that despite having thousands of Haitians enter Guyana unaccounted for last year, the coalition Government had sought to extend the time that Haitians spend in Guyana to an automatic six months.This was detailed in a letter dated January 31, 2019, addressed to Foreign Affairs Minister Carl Greenidge and copied to Minister of State Joseph Harmon, Citizenship Minister Winston Felix, and Public Security Minister Khemraj Ramjattan.The correspondence sent by the President’s Senior Confidential Secretary was titled “Immigration Order 2019”. It noted that under the Immigration Act, Chapter 14:02, amendments were made to “allow Haitian nationals to be entitled to an automatic stay of six months”. The amendment was made by Legal Affairs Minister Basil Williams.
He squares off this evening in Toronto, in the campaigns first party leaders debate, hosted by Maclean’s magazine, with the New Democrats, Tom Mulcair, the Liberals Justin Trudeau, and the Green Parties Elizabeth May. It should also be noted there are limits for election advertising expenses incurred by third parties and for this, the country’s 42nd general election, that limit in any given electoral district is $8,788.22, and the total election advertising expenses limit is $439,410.81.Expense Limits are established in accordance with the Canada Elections Act and these are preliminary ones, based on the number of names on the preliminary lists of electors.They are increased for election periods longer than 37 days.This will be an extended eleven week campaign and many pundits believe Prime Minister Harper opted for the long run-up, more than double the norm, in order to maximize the Conservatives war chest advantage.Advertisement The Chief Electoral Officer has released the preliminary expenses limits for political parties and candidates for the October 19th federal election.As a result of 2012 electoral redistribution, based on population, the number of constituencies in BC is up to 42 from 36.That noted, in this province, the party limits range from a low of just over $131,000 in a Mission area riding in the Fraser Canyon, to just under $203,000, the only riding over $200,000, in North Okanagan, in the Shuswap.- Advertisement -The Prince George-Peace River riding is situated pretty well in the middle of the pack at $161,619.12.However, the candidate limits are slightly higher and they range from about $197,000, the only one under $200,000, in Surrey-Newton, to a high of about $275,000 in Kootenay-Columbia.Once again Prince George Peace River candidates find themselves in middle ground at $259,460.73.Advertisement
With that investment, there will be jobs for more than 130 new staff — including 100 additional social workers.$152 million has been allocated to strengthen programs and services that provide for the welfare of children and youth, including child protection, children and youth in care, and family supports, $11 million to support child care centres, $51 million for children and youth in care with special needs, as well as specialized programs, and $3 million over three years to support adoption service and facilitate the adoption of children in care.To support the goal of the B.C. government to be most progressive province in Canada for people with disabilities, Budget 2016 provides $170 million over three years to increase income assistance rates.This increase in rates will take effect on Sept. 1, 2016. Also effective that day, irrespective of where they live, those on disability assistance will be receiving an increase — up to $77 per month and the freedom to make their own choice about how to meet their own transportation needs.The budget announcement turned to housing affordability, a growing problem in B.C. — specifically the lower mainland. Beginning in the summer, people who purchase property in B.C. will need to disclose if they are citizens or permanent residents of Canada, and, if they are not, their citizenship and country of residence.“Let me be clear however: Our laws allow non-residents to own property and our government continues to welcome, indeed encourages, those who choose to come to our province to invest, create new jobs, and hopefully make their lives here and contribute to the social and economic fabric of our communities,” de Jong said in his address.“We are proud of the diversity in our communities. That diversity makes us stronger.”Since it was introduced by Bill Vander Zalm’s government in the 1980s, the basic calculation and thresholds for the Property Transfer Tax haven’t been changed — despite dramatically increased property values.Effective tomorrow, Feb. 17, 2016, the purchase of a qualifying new home valued at up to $750,000 will become totally exempt from the Property Transfer Tax.The cost of this measure to the Treasury will be offset by adding a third tier to the property transfer tax rate. This move will increase the rate from two per cent to three per cent on the value of property above $2 million.Finally, the awaited B.C. prosperity fund announcement. LNG was hardly mentioned in the address, save for one passage.“Today there are 20 LNG proposals in B.C. at various stages of development, and we will continue to work with the private sector to move forward on projects.We are, however, prudent in our forecasts, and though we have seen important and substantive progress in the development of an LNG industry in B.C., we have not included LNG projects in our revenue projections at this time, pending the announcement of a final investment decision.The fundamental advantages that have attracted LNG proponents to B.C., including the enthusiastic participation of so many First Nations, has not changed.The forecasts for growing worldwide demand for a reliable supply of LNG remain unchallenged.”The Prosperity Fund will be started with a deposit of $100 million from the forecast surplus.It will be a ‘long-time legacy’ to help eliminate the Province’s debt over time and make investments in health care, education, transportation, and family supports.The first priority will be to ‘continue to be reducing our borrowing requirements and retiring taxpayer-supported debt.’To achieve this, de Jong says a minimum of 50 per cent of each year’s allocation to the fund will be devoted to reducing the burden of taxpayer-supported debt on future generations. A minimum of 25 per cent will remain in the fund to grow and serve for future generations. VICTORIA, B.C. — Finance Minister Mike de Jong announced B.C.’s 2016 budget on Tuesday afternoon, before other members of the B.C. legislature in Victoria, B.C.De Jong posted the fourth-consecutive balanced budget, adding that B.C. plans for 2016-17 to spend $47.5 billion, and earn $48.1 billion in revenue. He says a forecast allowance of $350 million, and a budget surplus of $264 million.As B.C. is ‘poised to lead the country in economic growth,’ de Jong notes the third quarter of 2015 saw the highest quarterly level of net inter-provincial migration since 1995.- Advertisement -“We had a net inflow of more than 6,315 people from other regions of Canada, and yes, more than one-third of those arrived from Alberta.”Among all the announcements of funding and changes he addressed, changes to MSPs stand out at some of the most significant among the bunch.Starting on January 1, 2017, children will be exempt from MSP premiums, and the monthly rate will be based solely on the number of adults per household. For example, a household with one parent and two children will be charged the single adult rate, rather than the three-person rate as they are today.Advertisement The B.C. government is investing $70 million for this change. This is pocket change compared to the announcement of $3.2 billion in additional funding to the Ministry of Health over the next three years.The Ministry forecasts an increase of $560 million in the third year alone compared to the previous year, bringing the annual forecast ministry budget to $19 billion in the 2018-19 fiscal year.“By comparison, when I arrived in this place exactly 22 years ago tomorrow, the health budget was $6.4 billion,” de Jong said.In response to wildfires that scorched much of the province this past summer, de Jong announced commitments to emergency preparedness efforts and disaster prevention — more than $160 million in commitments, in fact.$85 million will be spent to establish the Forest Enhancement Society of BC. This organization will work towards wildfire prevention and mitigation through forest fuel management, reforestation and habitat restoration.Advertisement De Jong noted that this move benefits single parents in the province, who often ‘have to work harder to do more with less.’“I know that some people have advocated eliminating separate MSP premiums altogether,” he said.“But burying MSP into instruments of general taxation doesn’t make them go away, it merely hides them and may create for some the illusion that health care is free, which it certainly isn’t.”A family with one adult and two children would save $864 per year at the very least and could save up to $1,224 per year depending on their income.Advertisement The Minister of Finance also announced $10 million for plans and strategies to prevent wildfires, and another $10 million in one-time funding to help bolster training, administrative support and equipment renewals of volunteer ground search-and-rescue organizations.$55 million will be allocated in emergency preparedness and prevention initiatives, such as upgrading dikes and flood protection in vulnerable communities.De Jong also noted there will be a $3 million increase over three years in funding provided to Emergency Management B.C.The budget also allocated $673 million over the next three years to the Ministry of Children and Family Development and the Ministry of Social Development and Social Innovation, to help families — and individuals — in need.In response to the recommendations in the Plecas report, an extra $217 million over three years will be provided to the Ministry of Children and Family Development to go towards helping our most vulnerable children and families.Advertisement
