Balloting for ‘Horse of the Year’ and other awards not based on statistics by a 17-member panel comprising members of the press and Caymanas Track Limited (CTL) officials, is under way and early indications are that the 2015 derby and Diamond Mile winner SEEKING MY DREAM will be crowned ‘Horse of the Year’ by unanimous acclaim. Voting will conclude tomorrow inside the CTL Racing Office at Caymanas Park.Trained by 15-time champion Wayne DaCosta for Member of Parliament Derrick Smith, SEEKING MY DREAM enjoyed a record-breaking season. He won the two richest races on the calendar – the Cal’s Jamaica Derby in June with a purse of $7 million and the inaugural running of the Supreme Ventures Diamond Mile on December 5 which offered a record purse of $13.5 million, both with the season’s leading money-winning rider Omar Walker aboard.Having finished second in the 2000 Guineas, St Leger and CTL Invitational Mile on November 14, SEEKING MY DREAM pushed his 2015 earnings to a record $14.2 million, well clear of stable-companion PERFECT NEIGHBOUR in second with $5.1 million and Superstakes winner FRANFIELD in third with $4.9 million.Bred by Sherman Clachar and Norman Gordon, the chestnut colt by Seeking The Glory out of the 2008 Triple Crown winner and Horse of the Year Alsafra was never worse than second in 10 starts last year – winning five races and finishing second in five as well.SEEKING MY DREAM should also be named champion three-year-old, champion middle-distance performer and champion native-bred horse.hoping for top awardsAs far as DaCosta is concerned, his horses should sweep the top awards. Speaking at Caymanas Park on New Year’s Day, the trainer said:”Seeking My Dream is unchallenged for Horse of the Year, having won the two biggest races on the calendar last year, while Perfect Neighbour who captured important races such as the Gold Cup and Harry Jackson Memorial Cup looks a cinch for first runner up, champion stayer and champion four-year-old and up”, he predicted.”The second runner-up award could be close between my horse Poker Star and the consistent grade-one campaigner Uppa Tune, but Poker Star is a safe bet for champion sprinter and Future King the obvious choice for champion two-year-old,, argued DaCosta.The Horse of the Year Committee will also choose the most improved trainer from a list of four nominees – Harry Parsard (30 wins), Donovan Plummer (19 wins), Marlon Anderson and Neive Graham with 17 wins each as well as most improved jockey from a list comprising Robert Halledeen (72 wins), Paul Francis (52), Shamaree Muir (43), Aaron Chatrie (38) and Jevanne Erwin (36).

Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 04 Sept 2015 – Safety tips from police this year focus on a combination of old school and new school advice as the new academic year rolls in. In the Turks and Caicos, Police are most concerned with road safety, smarter drivers and knowledgeable children. The Royal Turks and Caicos Police asks motorists to keep the speed limit in school zones, be alert especially in residential areas as we drive and to reduce distractions like our addictive cell phones, once on the road. Parents are encouraged to remind their children to never run out into the streets or cross in between parked cars, to always walk in front of the bus where the driver can see them and that it is still a good idea to rehearse with children their full name, address and phone number as well as walk with your children through the neighbourhood showing them places they can go in the event of an emergency; this includes a trusted neighbour or an open store.For more safety tips, just visit the TCI Police Facebook page, and let’s make the 2015/2016 academic year a safe one!

Rangers Football Club midfielder Ryan Jack has called on his teammates to improve after their lacklustre displays in their last three games.The Ibrox side have failed to win any of their last three games, including a disappointing loss to Aberdeen and Jack believes a lack of quality at key moments has been the club’s main problem of late.“It’s tough to take off the back of Sunday,” he said, according to EveningTimes.“We wanted to put in a strong performance and get the three points. It wasn’t to be. So it’s disappointing.“We have a chance on Saturday to put the last two games to bed and put it right.Rangers is still behind Celtic: John Hartson Manuel R. Medina – September 3, 2019 According to the former Celtic player, there’s still a massive gap between his ex-club and Rangers in the Scottish Premier League.“It’s just motivation for the players to realise that every day you need to be on top of your game.“Every match at this club demands standards, you need to be at the top of your game every day in training or you get left behind.“As players, you just get your head down, keep working hard. It’s important we all stick together and I’m sure it will all be good.“Training has been excellent. It’s as good as it has been. Obviously, on the back of Sunday’s disappointment, there can be a hangover. But training was lively, it was a good standard.“You just have to keep working, there’s no other answer for it. Get your head down, stick together and it will change.”

CNET Smart Home Comment Sarah Tew/CNET Amazon,I’m shocked — shocked! — to learn that stores are turning Labor Day into an excuse to sell stuff. Wait — no, I’m not. As much as I respect the original intent of the holiday (which became official back in 1894), to most of us, it’s just a bonus day off — one that’s blissfully tacked onto a weekend. So, yeah, stores; go ahead, run your sales. I’m listening. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Labor Day doesn’t bring out bargains to compete with the likes of Black Friday (which will be here before you know it), but there are definitely some sales worth your time.For example:We’ve rounded up the best Labor Day mattress deals.We’ve also gathered the best Labor Day laptop deals at Best Buy.The 2019 Vizio P Series Quantum is back under $999.Be sure to check out Amazon’s roughly three dozen Labor Day deals on TVs and audio. Google Express is having a big sale as well, one that includes deals on game consoles, AirPods, iPhones, laptops and more.Below I’ve rounded up a handful of individual items I consider to be the cream of the crop, followed by a handy reference guide to other Labor Day sales. Keep in mind, of course, that products may sell out at any time, even if the sale itself is still running.

Apple iPhone XS $59 at eBay Preview • iPhone XS is the new $1,000 iPhone X $999 Chris Monroe/CNET I thought this might be a mistake, but, no, the weirdly named HP Laptop 15t Value is indeed quite the value at this price. Specs include an Intel Core i7 processor, 12GB of RAM, a 256GB solid-state drive and a 15.6-inch display. However, I strongly recommend paying an extra $50 to upgrade that display to FHD (1,920×1,080), because you’re not likely to be happy with the native 1,366×768 resolution.

Exposure to lead during the development stages and early childhood is likely to increase the risk of obesity in adulthood, finds a new research. The results of the study conducted on mice found that exposure to lead during early development stages of life can change the gut microbiota — a complex community of micro-organisms that live in the digestive tracts of animals — in a way that it significantly raises the chances of obesity in adulthood.“Early life exposure to lead causes a long lasting impact on gut microbiome, and the change of gut microbiome may partially contribute to the increased body weight in adult life,” said lead author Chuanwu Xi, associate professor at the University of Michigan in US. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’Adult male mice exposed to lead during the gestation period and infancy stages were 11 per cent larger than those not exposed. Mice exposed to lead during early development stages showed differences in their gut microbiota and had fewer aerobes and more anaerobes in their gut.In both males and females, developmental lead impacted the adult microbiome, the researchers maintained, adding that the study only observed adult onset obesity in the males. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixLead was added to the drinking water of mice mother prior to breeding through nursing their young. The lead levels were carefully designed to be within human population exposure levels.Once weaned, the offspring were raised to adulthood without additional exposure, and then tested for lead effects acquired from their mothers, the researchers explained in the study published in the journal Toxicological Sciences.Lead is found throughout the environment in natural and man-made settings. For decades, researchers have found many health problems associated with exposure, even at levels lower than the threshold for safety set by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).In the study, the researchers used deep DNA sequencing of bacterial specific genes to examine the guts of both males and females.
