first_imgSPURS (4-2-3-1)LLORIS,WALKER, ALDERWIRELD, VERTONGHEN, ROSEDIER, DEMBELE,LAMELA, ALLI ERIKSEN,KANERONDON, BERAHINO,McCLEAN, YACOB, FLETCHER, SESSEGNON,CHESTER, EVANS, McAULEY, DAWSON,FOSTERWBA (4-4-2)Tottenham Hotspur’s previously slim hopes of winning the Barclays Premier League for the first time received a boost last weekend and, should Leicester falter at home to Swansea on Sunday, Spurs can reduce the deficit at the top of the table to just two points with three games remaining.The fact is Leicester still have their fate in their own hands with eight points needed, as it stands, from 12 available to secure a famous success. However, they were held to a 2-2 draw against West Ham last Sunday before Spurs put in an impressive performance at Stoke City a day later, winning 4-0.Harry Kane and Deli Alli both scored twice in that game, with the former taking his league tally to 47 since the start of last season. Eight of Alli’s 10 goals have come on the road.And Spurs return to White Hart Lane having lost just four league games. Their previous fewest losses in top-flight league football is eight, in 2010-11 and 2012-13, meaning that will at least equal a club record and are more than likely to beat it.Two more records could be set: Spurs have scored 64 goals; three short of their best haul in the Premier League, with 67 in the 2009-10 campaign. And they have conceded only 25; their previous fewest in the Premier League is 28 (1995-96 and 2005-06), while the least in any top-flight campaign is 22, in the old First Division in 1970-71.Since losing at home to Leicester in January, Spurs have taken 16 points from a possible 18 and have a clean bill of health. Albion, in Premier League action at Arsenal on Thursday, miss Chris Brunt and James Morrison.last_img read more

first_img…as blame game continuesAs the blame game continues as to who is responsible for rescuing the 12-year-old girl who was allegedly abducted and taken to a “ganja” farm along the Berbice River, Police have been dispatched to the area.CC&PA Director Ann GreeneSocial Protection Minister Amna AllyThe story of the missing teen came to light after several sections of the media reported her mother’s plight in finding her. For months, the mother had been engaging the Child Care and Protection Agency (CC&PA) and the Police in a bid to find her daughter, but to no avail.On Wednesday after media reports surfaced, the mother said that she was informed that efforts are being made to rescue the teen. She, however, added that no offers were made to take along a close family member for the search.According to the woman, she went to the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) during the day and at 16:00h she was told to return later in the evening for an update, but when she returned, the Police Station was closed and a padlock was on the door.Meanwhile, the CC&PA said that while it received reports of the missing girl, the mother was sent to make a Police report since it was the Police’s job to find the child.CC&PA Director Ann Greene, when contacted for an update on the matter, told Guyana Times that investigations were underway to determine what occurred. “I now have my officer investigating, so whether or not it’s really us, Probation or what, I got to find out; I’m doing investigations,” Greene highlighted.The mother of the missing teen told this publication on Tuesday that the Police in Berbice and the New Amsterdam office of the CC&PA were well aware of the issue, but had done nothing to actively pursue the matter. She claimed that she first went to the CC&PA and was told that the incident was a Police matter. When the media got wind of the incident on Monday, the Social Protection Ministry requested that it be given one day to pursue efforts to find the missing girl. However, after the story was reported in the press, the Agency embarked on damage control, with a senior official observing that other units involved in protecting children needed to be investigated. These entities are the Probation Office and the Trafficking in Persons Unit in addition to Police.Reports are that the woman’s daughter is being held by two adult brothers at a location in Berbice. The young lady was held along with a 13-year-old who reportedly escaped.They were said to have been held at a camp, where they were subjected to starvation, sexual assault and other forms of abuse.Meanwhile, the 13-year-old girl, who was rescued spoke with Guyana Times in the presence of two adults. She revealed that the ordeal was facilitated by a woman who allegedly moved her from the New Amsterdam Market under the pretext that they were going to collect money that the woman had for the girl’s father.This publication understands that the woman is the mother of the two males who held the girls in captivity.last_img read more

first_imgGovernment has been secretly expending millions of dollars for several of its ministers to benefit from full-scholarship programmes.Junior Education Minister Nicolette Henry and Junior Infrastructure Minister Annette Ferguson are among those who received millions of dollars to pursue their studies in the United States and the United Kingdom respectively.Junior Education Minister Nicolette HenryHenry is doing her PHD in Public Health to the tune of $3.36 million, while Ferguson is benefiting from a $3.38 million scholarship in Public Policy Management.Additionally, Education Minister Dr Rupert Roopnaraine’s daughter, Alicia, is benefiting from a $2.58 million scholarship at a university in the UK. She is studying psychology.Other notable beneficiaries are former Chief Education Officer Olato Sam who is studying Education Policy in Jamaica, costing some $946,000 and a Guyana Chronicle Board Director Tabitha Sarabo-Halley who is currently pursuing Public Policy Management studies in the UK to the tune of $3.4 million.CSEC top student Elisa Hamilton is also a beneficiary of the government scholarships programme, but unlike the others, hers’ was publicly announced.Questions are being raised regarding the process used to select the beneficiaries of the programme and why Government did not, in the interest transparency, disclose that it is funding the studies of some of its ministers.Minister of State Joseph Harmon had disclosed to the National Assembly that Government has provided full scholarships to nine persons at the PHD Level, 75 at the Masters Level, 186 at the Bachelors Level, and 704 at various local institutions.On Wednesday evening, in response to a requested made by Opposition Chief Whip Gail Teixeira, Harmon submitted a list of names of all the persons benefitting from the government scholarships.last_img read more

first_imgMassimo Allegri insists Arturo Vidal will make his Juventus return this week as he again played down speculation linking the midfielder with a move to Manchester United.United have been chasing the Chilean all summer and his absence from the Juve side that won a 5-0 friendly with a select Singapore side on Saturday inevitably led to claims a £40million-plus deal could be imminent.The Serie A side’s recently appointed manager Allegri, however, says the 27-year-old is simply being eased back in after his World Cup exploits and is unconcerned by the constant talk over the player’s future.“He is a lion in a cage. He would like to play, but he needs to train more,” Allegri told Gazzetta dello Sport.“We will put him in the field against Villar Perosa [on Wednesday] or in the TIM Trophy [later this week].“Arturo has great spirit. It is normal that there are rumours about him – great teams seek out the big players. But Vidal is already at a great team.” 1 Arturo Vidal last_img read more

first_imgThe case of a man charged with dangerous driving causing the death of two friends has been adjourned to the next term of Letterkenny Circuit Court.Friends Kiara Baird (19), and mother-of-three Maria Wallace (38), died after the car in which they were passengers crashed at Glenfin Road, Ballybofey on September 21st, 2016. The women died instantly after the Citroën C3 car in which they were travelling was involved in a collision with a pole.Dermot Dowd (24), of Donegal Road, Ballybofey, who is in custody on other charges, is charged with dangerous driving causing the deaths of the two pals.Family members of the two women were in court this morning, when Judge John O’Hagan granted an adjournment.Barrister for the accused, Mr Peter Nolan, said he had only received the book of evidence for the case yesterday and applied for the adjournment ‘in the interest of justice’.“I am very conscious of the trauma the two families are going through,” Judge O’Hagan said.“I am also conscious that relatives of Kiara Baird and Maria Wallace are in court. I am doing what I am doing principally on the presumption of innocence. Secondly, it is obliged that a book of evidence be served. The defence can weigh it up, assess it and decide what to do. It appears as if this was only served two days ago in what is a very serious case.“The other fact is that the accused Mr Dowd is in custody under other matters so, consequently, he is entitled to an early trial because he is in custody.“I am aware of the pressures you are under, but this particular case should be adjourned to the next term.”Judge O’Hagan also warned that trial dates will not be arranged to suit any engineers who may be required to give evidence in the trial.He said: “I have had experience in the past where engineers try to ‘engineer’, so to speak, a trial date that suits them. That is not to be tolerated’.The scene of the double fatality.

first_imgResidents in parts of West Donegal have been without water in recent days – and some homes have not had water since Saturday.The community of Mín Doire Dhamh in Gaoth Dobhair has been struggling without water for the past three days.Doire Chonaire, Machaire Rabhartaigh and Glaise Chú have also been affected by outages. One Montessori in Machaire Rabhartaigh did not get their supplies restored until this morning.Irish Water crews have been working on the burst water main in Mín Doire Dhamh today and expect to have supplies restored by 2pm.Local Councillor Michael Cholm MacGiolla Easpuig said he has called for an emergency meeting with Irish Water on the issue.“Irish Water refuse to meet on request,” Cllr Mac Giolla Easpuig said. “These issues are a clear indication of the failure of the previous governments to invest into water infrastructure. Especially at the time of the so-called Celtic Tiger, when there was a surplus of money, they were ignorant to the needs of the infrastructure, or they actually didn’t care. “What needs to happen now is huge investment needs to be made into water infrastructure.“In the best interests of the community, the State needs to return the water service so the Council can deliver,” he said.  West Donegal residents hit by lengthy water outages was last modified: August 27th, 2019 by Rachel McLaughlinShare 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)last_img read more
