Woodleigh fires off pistol season with Winterfest

first_imgWoodleigh Shooting Range, May Pen, Clarendon, fires off the 2016 pistol-shooting season with a challenging seven-stage 140-round match tomorrow, Woodleigh Winterfest. Top local shooters will be using the match as a warm-up for March’s highly anticipated Jamaica Invitational Pistol Tournament at the Jamaica Rifle Association, Mountain View, St Andrew, at which six-time world champion Eric Grauffel will be back to defend his crown. Woodleigh Winterfest match director Harry Chin Hing told The Gleaner Winterfest will be a stern test for even the top shooters. “This match will consist of many penalty targets and small steel plates, which will force many shooters to slow down and pick their shots carefully,” said Chin Hing. The seven stages comprise 59 paper targets, seven steel poppers and 17 eight-inch steel plates. Some targets will feature swingers, flip-up and falling mechanisms, making it that much more interesting. Shooters returning from the Florida Open in Frostproof will be in action at Winterfest, including Andrew (Andy) Yapp, who placed a credible ninth overall of 112 competitors in the limited division, securing third place in Master Class. Others to watch are Orville ‘Reds’ Henriques and Ron Brown Jnr, who were fifth and sixth, respectively. The popular production division will no doubt be contested heavily with consistent Tony ‘TJ’ Johnson and Ryan Bramwell gunning it out for top honours along with Chris Nunez, Darin Richards and Paul Shoucair in the mix. Open division has once again been affected by a shortage of ammo and will not see many of the usual competitors battling in the rapid-fire category.last_img read more

Indiana won 99-90. (AP Photo/Darron Cummings)INDIANAPOLIS — The Indiana Pacers signed Wesley Matthews to make a difference.They didn’t necessarily expect it show up in his debut.ADVERTISEMENT Nadine Lustre’s phone stolen in Brazil Initially, Matthews looked understandably out of sync. But as Matthews played on, he emerged as the difference-maker McMillan expected.While the stat line wasn’t spectacular — eight points, five rebounds and three assists — his impact was huge. The long shot he made with 3:57 to play extended Indiana’s lead to 92-82. And his second 3, with 2:15 left, gave Indiana a game-sealing 97-85 cushion.“He’ll take his shots, you see him, he struggled with his shot a little at the beginning but then he hits (two 3-pointers) toward the end that closes it out,” Darren Collison said after finishing with 13 points and eight assists. “That’s what he brings to the table.”Three other Indiana players reached double figures, including Myles Turner, who had 18 points, eight rebounds and three blocks. Thaddeus Young added 11 points, eight rebounds and six assists.Charlotte was led by Kemba Walker, who scored 26 of his 34 points in the second half when the Hornets attempted to rally from a 16-point halftime deficit.ADVERTISEMENT Walker scored half of the Hornets’ points during a 10-3 spurt to open the third quarter, made three consecutive free throws to get Charlotte within 64-57 and then made 3 with 1:02 left in the quarter to cut the deficit to 72-71.But Turner and Collison closed out the third with back-to-back baskets, Indiana scored the first eight points of the fourth and Matthews closed it out with his two big shots.“Everybody’s got to do their job,” Hornets coach James Borrego said. “Tonight we didn’t have all of our guys on board.”TIP-INSHornets: Walker has scored at least 30 points in five consecutive games. He also had nine rebounds. … Jeremy Lamb had 21 points and Cody Zeller added 18 points and nine rebounds while returning to his home state. … Tony Parker sat out with a sprained back. … The Hornets were 7 of 40 on 3s, 25 of 33 on free throws and shot a season-low 32.2 percent. … Charlotte lost the season series 2-1 and only has one series win since 2007-08.Pacers: The Pacers have won at least six straight three times this season, their highest single-season total since 2003-04. … McMillan moved within three wins of tying Isiah Thomas for No. 6 on the Pacers’ NBA franchise career victory list (131). … Bojan Bogdanovic had 14 points. … The Pacers were outrebounded 21-5 on the offensive end but were only outscored 16-8 in second-chance points.FAST STARTIndiana never trailed after taking a 12-11 lead in the first quarter. But the fast starts have become a staple since losing their first four games without Oladipo.They charged out to a 32-19 lead after one, their fifth straight game with at least 30 points in the first quarter, and extended the margin to 39-19 early in the second.“It’s encouraging when you get out to good starts like this, but it’s really (all) defense,” Turner said. “I think we held them to 38 points in that first half.” Gretchen Barretto’s daughter Dominique graduates magna cum laude from California college Japeth Aguilar wins 1st PBA Finals MVP award for Ginebra Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

40 Liberian Teenagers to Study in Italy

first_imgAbout 40 Liberian youths will be afforded the opportunity to attend high schools in Italy thanks to the generosity of the creator and international coordinator of the Pitagora Mundus Project, the Calabrian Institute of International Politics (IsCaPI), which has provided the government of Liberian these scholarship slots.According to a recent dispatch from Italy, the offer was announced by the Institute’s President, Dr. Salvatore La Porta, at a meeting with President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf during her recent visit to Rome, Italy.Selected teenagers between the ages of 14 to 16 will benefit from this scholarship. They will also be taught professional courses to compliment the academic criteria.Briefing President Sirleaf on the scholarships, Dr. La Porta said the 20 selected teenagers would attend Italian high schools in the 2014/2015 academic year; while the remaining 20 students would attend during the 2015/2016 academic year.“They will be admitted to professional courses, in order to acquire a specific qualification in one of the following sectors: agriculture, industry, wood industry and tourism,” he said.Dr. La Porta said the project, which is expected to last for three years, would enable Italian and Liberian students to interact with each other and peers from different cultures, lifestyles, religions, languages and customs, enriching their knowledge while becoming global citizens.The project is renewable for two additional years upon the completion of the initial time frame if the need arises. The responsibility of the government under this arrangement is to guarantee the presence of at least one tutor for the 20 students, who would assume the role of linguistic and cultural mediator.The tutor would be responsible to accompany the students for the entire duration of the school year and give out round trip air tickets for students provided by the Government. The Government would provide the tutor accompanying each batch of students a monthly remuneration for the duration of that particular school year. Government is to provide an annual flat-rate funding of €1,000 per student, to be administered by IsCaPI, aimed at organizing extracurricular activities and supplementary courses of the Italian language, in addition to administrative support and coordination; funding for medical insurance coverage and residence permits.The IsCaPi boss noted the schools that the students are to attend have committed themselves to provision of education and training according to the guidelines defined by the new regulations of upper secondary schools; report the outcome to the Liberian partner regarding the learning process and behavior of students in correspondence with the feedback given by the school; provide to the tutor a monthly report in reference to attendance and absences of any nature and causes of delays regarding students.He said the Municipalities (the local government) would provide the students’ meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner), lodging, transportation, laundry, room cleaning, internet, electricity, and supply water and heating, even during holiday periods and/or suspension of educational activities.The IsCaPI would guarantee the general coordination of the Project in Italy and coordinate the mediation of cultural, linguistic, social and extracurricular activities in the area; including administrative and logistic assistance to students.President Sirleaf thanked Dr. La Porta for the scholarships and promised that deserving Liberians would take advantage of the opportunity through a competitive process.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Rooney ‘can score 20 goals this season’, Man United great tells talkSPORT

first_imgManchester United legend Bryan Robson has warned fans not to judge Wayne Rooney too soon, insisting the striker can recover from his poor start to the season and plunder 20 goals this term.The club captain has come under scrutiny for his below-par performances in United’s first two games of the new Premier League campaign, despite the club coming away with six points.He was anonymous in their opening day victory over Tottenham – won by a Kyle Walker own goal – with statistics showing he barely touched the ball inside the penalty area, and he was panned by supporters for his sluggish display in the win over Aston Villa on Friday.Having spent the majority of last season in the supporting role, Louis van Gaal has made it clear Rooney has his backing in his favoured centre-forward position this term, though there is great pressure on the forward, with United’s goalscoring burden falling squarely on his shoulders following the departure of Robin van Persie.But while he hasn’t enjoyed the most promising of starts, Old Trafford great Robson believes Rooney will shine this season.He told Drivetime: “Wayne is a great player and people always highlight him, whenever he has a dip in form people are quick to point it out and criticise.“But Wayne has great character, he’s a team player and as long as the manager keeps picking him, he will work hard and he’ll give his best for Manchester United.“I can see Wayne doing really well this season… I’d like to see him get up to that 20 goal mark, and he’s capable of that.”last_img read more

Reading FC takeover given green light by EFL

first_img Reading FC: Dai Yongge and Dai Xiu Li now hold a 75 per cent stake in the Berkshire club The EFL has no objections to the takeover of Reading by Chinese investors Dai Yongge and Dai Xiu Li.The change in ownership was announced on Tuesday evening, shortly after the Royals had booked their place in the Sky Bet Championship final at Wembley with victory over Fulham.The Dais – brother and sister – now hold a 75 per cent stake in the Berkshire club, with the remaining quarter retained by the Thai consortium led by Lady Sasima Srivikorn.While welcoming the takeover, the EFL stressed it would continue to monitor the financial aspect of the deal.“The EFL can confirm that they have no objections to the change of control application made by Reading Football Club,” a statement issued on Wednesday morning read.“Following a full review of the transaction, the EFL has insisted upon – and the club/new owners have agreed to – a number of additional reporting requirements including enhanced financial monitoring, so as to ensure that their performance is consistent with the application we have considered.“We would like to wish the new majority shareholders Mr Yongge Dai and Miss Xui Li Dai the very best of luck in their future endeavours with the club.”The Royals were last in the Premier League in the 2012/13 campaign, and hopes are high of a return to the top flight under the guidance of Dutch manager Jaap Stam.Chief executive Nigel Howe is confident the new owners can help move the clubs forwards, on and off the pitch.“Dai Yongge and Dai Xiu Li are investing in a club with undoubted potential – investment which will benefit not only the first-team squad, but which will also help to improve the club’s training facilities, continue to support its category-one academy programme and actively assist in delivering plans to develop the Royal Elm Park proposal,” Howe said. 1last_img read more
