Coats: ISIL Actions Barbaric, Deserving Of Worldwide Outrage

first_imgJames FoleyINDIANAPOLIS – Senator Dan Coats (R-Ind.), a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee, issued the following statement regarding the murder of James Foley, an American journalist killed by Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) militants in Syria:“As the details of this tragedy unfold, my thoughts and prayers are with the family of James Foley. If the civilized world had yet to fully recognize the barbaric nature of ISIL, this incident should open the eyes of the entire international community. There must be worldwide outrage at ISIL’s actions and how innocent civilians are being attacked, tortured and murdered by this so-called caliphate.“ISIL’s actions are a gross perversion of the Islamic faith, and it is time for the millions of Muslims who believe and adhere to the Quran and value human life to respond. Political, religious and other leaders must speak up publicly in opposition to ISIL. They must take a stand and show that they will not tolerate this blatant distortion of their beliefs.“It also is time for the United States, Europe and other nations to recognize that the civilized world is dealing with nothing short of barbarism that cannot be resolved through inaction or diplomacy.last_img read more

English Premier League players won’t be fit until late June, club manager says

But its plans to resume next month received a boost when the UK Government last week said it was “opening the door” for the sport to return.Another meeting is planned for Monday to discuss safety measures needed for “Project Restart” to happen and Bruce said players need at least six weeks to get back in shape.“You have to remember that they have had eight weeks off and that is probably the longest break some of these players have had in their careers,” Bruce said.“If we were doing pre-season, we would have six weeks and probably have six friendly games to get them ready for the first league match.“We need enough preparation time to get these players into shape or they are just going to fall down like a pack of cards. “Most of the managers have the same concerns… I don’t see how we can play games until the back end of June.”Watford manager Nigel Pearson has already warned that players’ lives could be in danger if the Premier League returns too soon.Newcastle United defender Danny Rose also expressed concerns, saying players’ health was more important than restarting the season.“I’ve spoken to him (Rose) and he’s coming back as well,” Bruce said. “I don’t think there is a footballer out there who has done more for the NHS throughout this than Danny.“If a player refuses to come in or play, I have sympathy for that and will understand it. You have to respect everybody’s personal views on it.” Reuters/NAN.Tags: COVID-19Newcastle UnitedProject RestartSteve Brucelast_img read more

Pinelope a firm banker

first_imgTomorrow’s well-supported 11-race programme at Caymanas Park offers a Pick-9 carryover of $1.4 million despite no major upsets last Saturday.The Pick-9 will be conducted from race three to 11 the first Super-6 from race one to six, the late Super-6 from race six to 11.We look at the first Super-6 with a guaranteed minimum of $750,000, this for native-bred three-year-olds and up over 1400 metres, to be contested by seven starters.Included in the line-up are three useful three-year-olds – ZUGULU, JAMAI RAJA and CRUISING MOTION, who has won twice for champion trainer Wayne DaCosta since the start of the season.ZUGULU has not lived up to early expectations in recent months and could only manage fifth to SHINING LIGHT over 1100 metres last Saturday. However, he looks the obvious leader, and given this milder pace, will have to be caught. I believe the four-year-old colts SILVER CLOUD and ORIGINAL TRAIN have the ability to overhaul ZUGULU over this trip, especially the DaCosta-trained grey colt SILVER CLOUD, who has won two of his last races here in good company and only needs a clean break to rebound with Robert Halledeen aboard.SMART TRAIN, to be ridden by champion jockey Shane Ellis for trainer Morris Powell, is not the most reliable of horses, but pitted against 11 moderate rivals in the second race over 1400 metres for maiden five-year-olds and up, should finally deliver.The five-year-old mare, who failed by a neck to catch OMEGA over 1500 metres on November 21, reports well drawn on the outside and gets the nod over QUEEN OF THE TOWN, MY FAVOURITE DANCER, and DEPUTY HEADGIRL, all fit animals.Race number three, division one of the Eight Thirty Sprint three-year-old Maiden Special over the straight, this marking the start of the three-year-old campaign leading up to the classics, has attracted two well-advanced fillies in PINELOPE (Ellis up) and DANCING QUEEN, with Ian Spence riding for 14-time champion trainer Philip Feanny.Both have looked sharp in recent exercise gallops over the straight, but preference is for the Dwight Chen-trained PINELOPE, a bay filly by Porto Santo out of Black Thatch, who has been more extensively prepared than DANCING QUEEN.tough-looking raceNext on the programme is a tough-looking $250,000-$210,00 claiming race over the straight to be contested by 13 mostly fit horses. Leading lights are recent winners ETERNAL JOY from the in-form stables of – Neive Graham, BATTLE SONG and FFIFTYONESTORM, as well as AUNT HILDA, CLEARLY OURS,WINESHA, and INFANTRY OFFICER.Given the competitive nature of this race, I would implore punters to use multiple choices. ETERNAL JOY could prove the fastest of all, and although not the best drawn, will have to be caught with only 53.0kg. Preference, however, is for FIFTYONESTORM (Jevanne Erwin up), who beat a good field over the course last Boxing Day and has shown good speed in his races.The last two races in the first Super-6 should be won by POISON GAS (Omar Walker up), who showed promise on her recent debut behind GLOBAL and NO COINCIDENCE (regaining form).FIRST SUPER-6 FANCIES(1) SILVER CLOUD/ORIGINAL TRAIN(2) SMART TRAIN/MY FAVOURITE DANCER(3) PINELOPE(4) FIFTYONESTORM/ETERNAL JOY(5) POISON GAS/DUTCHESS URIEL(6) NO COINCIDENCE/CLASSICAL TRAINlast_img read more

The great fall of APNU/AFC coalition Govt

first_imgDear Editor,The great fall of this coalition Government can be likened to the Humpty Dumpty’s fall: “…All the King’s horses and all the King’s men couldn’t put Humpty together again”. Or, in the case of the coalition, not all the trickeries, deceit, false promises and constitutional violations can put it together again!Since the unilateral and legally flawed appointment of Mr Patterson as the GECOM’s Chairman by Granger and his coalition advisors in October 2017, it became crystal clear that the coalition’s ambition is to stay in power at any and all costs, blatantly disregarding the rule of law and the Constitution by setting the necessary foundation for its trademark rigging. This became more revealing after the successful passing of the historical No-Confidence Motion on December 21, 2018.The coalition had never expected that their term in office will be abruptly curtailed on that night, as is evidenced by the premature bragging by Amna Ally to ‘bring it on’ before that fateful night, which brought the curtains down on the most corrupted Government ever. Hence, there was no haste to install the remaining rigging machinery. They had assumed that it will be until late 2020. Moreover, they never expected that the NCM would be successful. They thought that Jagdeo was bluffing! Well, they have since realised that this man does not indulge in idle pastimes.This lustful intention to remain in power indefinitely became more revealing after the NCM, having accepted defeat the very day they then came up with ‘Hughes absolute 34’ to start the delaying tactics even though they knew that given our Constitution, 33 is the majority once all the members of the National Assembly are present and voted. Time is of essence to survive and they began fabricating a plethora of nonsensical and spurious legal challenges to buy that time. They wasted taxpayers’ dollars they ripped off with their inconsequential journey from the High Court to the Appeal Court and thence to the CCJ for the final resting place. The coalition thoroughly embarrassed itself internationally and became a laughing stock to the world after the CCJ passed a comprehensive judgement upholding the validity of the NCM, the vote of Charrandas Persaud, and invalidated the unilateral appointment of Patterson. The CCJ rejected each and every argument put forward by the coalition. It was a unanimous decision which should have created no further doubt and ambiguity in the minds of the coalition actors and brought acceptance. Unfortunately, they continued their deliberate obfuscation of the simple facts in their quest to remain in power.In the meantime, the coalition had activated their Plan B. Realising that the CCJ’s decisions would not be in their favour, they began a protest against themselves to agitate for House-to-House voter’s registration. Even though GECOM’s legal officer advised against such a move and accepted the validity of the current Official List of Electors, which can be refreshed by claims and objections. It must be noted that just before Patterson resigned, he did follow the coalition’s instructions and initiated the House-to-House registration as its final delay tactic. He ensured that the coalition got value for money spent on him.But they now have another ploy at hand! Even though the CCJ’s consequential orders made it clear that general elections must be held within 3 months and should have been held since March 21, 2019, the coalition is once again bent on frustrating the appointment of a new GECOM’s Chairman. This is in clear breach of giving legal effect to Article 106 of the Constitution, since GECOM and the coalition must ensure elections within 90 days. The CCJ does not have to set an election date, the CCJ made it clear that Cabinet must resign and elections held within 3 months, while the now relegated ‘caretaker’ or ‘interim’ Government must facilitate this. It is nonsensical to now say that the CCJ has not set a date since it has upheld the Constitutional requirement of 90 days within which election should and must be held.The CCJ had also made it clear that GECOM should always be in a state of readiness should it be necessary and the continuous registration cycles placed GECOM in such a state of readiness.Therefore, enough obfuscation by this ‘caretaker Government’. The date for General and Regional Elections should be on or before September 21, 2019. Their Plan B can no longer be activated, rigging is now history in Guyana and the coalition’s Humpty cannot be restored!Yours sincerely,Haseef Yusuflast_img read more
