Racism should be treated as seriously as match-fixing and doping – Holder

first_imgPLAYERS found guilty of racism should face the same penalties as match-fixers and dopers, says West Indies captain Jason Holder. While International Cricket Council (ICC) rules allow for a life ban for on-pitch racist abuse, culprits are rarely punished to that extent.“I don’t think the penalty for doping or corruption should be any different for racism,” Holder told BBC Sport.“If we’ve got issues within our sport, we must deal with them equally.”Under the ICC’s anti-racism policy, a first offence is usually punished with between four and eight suspension points. Two suspension points equate to a ban for one Test or two one-day internationals or two T20 international matches.Former Pakistan captain Sarfaraz Ahmed missed two one-day internationals and two Twenty20 matches as punishment for a racist remark to South Africa all-rounder Andile Phehlukwayo in 2019.Holder cited the experience of England’s Jofra Archer, who has been a target of racial remarks from the crowd both in home and away Tests, and team-mate Moeen Ali, who it is believed was targeted by India fans in a 2014 match because of his Pakistani background.Holder, whose team will take on England in a behind-closed-doors three-Test series starting on July 8 in Southampton, said that he believed that each international meeting could be preceded by reminders to both teams of their responsibilities around race.“In addition to having anti-doping briefings and anti-corruption briefings, maybe we should have an anti-racism feature before we start a series,” he added.“My message is more education needs to go around it.“I’ve not experienced any racial abuse first-hand but have heard or seen a few things around it. It’s something you just can’t stand for.” (BBC Sport)last_img read more

Players to watch Wisconsin vs. Bowling Green

first_imgJames Knapke – QBKnapke didn’t play in the first game this season against Western Kentucky, which also happened to be the only loss for the Bowling Green this season, but since then he has put up some impressive numbers in back-to-back wins.After redshirting his freshman year and seeing limited playing time a year ago, Knapke has stepped up in his first two career starts this year, orchestrating a 45-42 win over Big Ten squad Indiana last week. Not only did Knapke throw for almost 400 yards, with 395 yards through the air against the Hoosiers, he also displayed a dual-threat potential with 37 rushing yards on eight carries.The week before in a comfortable win over VMI, Knapke had three total touchdowns and 237 yards through the air in his first career start.Although his college numbers have been limited, he had a strong high school career as the only quarterback in Indiana to lead his team to three-straight high school championships. With a big day from Knapke, the offense for Bowling Green could give Wisconsin a formidable test.Melvin Gordon – RBRunning back Melvin Gordon waited for his turn to showcase his abilities in a Wisconsin rushing attack that has forged the identity of Badgers’ football over the last two decades. After spending time behind Montee Ball and James White, Gordon had high expectations heading into this year but has started the year off slower than expected.The first game of the season against LSU started out with a bang as Gordon ran for 144 yards, almost half of which came on a 63-yard rush to begin the second half. Since then, though, Gordon has run 20 times for only 40 yards. In his first two seasons, Gordon averaged almost 10 yards per carry, so his numbers recently are nothing he, or fans for that matter, are accustomed to seeing.Wisconsin’s power running game is still its calling card, and if Gordon can break out of the mini-slump, the Badgers’ offense could become a force to be reckoned with. If a healthy and destructive Gordon gets back to his potential this weekend, and if quarterback Tanner McEvoy continues with what he displayed last week, Wisconsin will win big.last_img read more

Dodgers beat Padres 5-4 after 12th-inning power outage

first_imgTied 4-4, Padres pitcher Robert Stock (0-1) walked Kemp on four pitches to begin the 12th inning. Kiké Hernandez dropped down a sacrifice bunt, sending Kemp to second base. Turner was preparing to see his first pitch from Stock when the stadium’s power supply suddenly and completely cut out.Turner had to wait patiently for his turn to bat and the most patient among the announced crowd of 53,528 – having already seen a one-run lead squandered in the ninth inning – saw their patience tested even further. It was the second power outage at Dodger Stadium this season.This time, a circuit outage on the line supplying power to the stadium was the cause, according to the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power.Once the lights were fully restored, Turner popped the first pitch he saw just inside the right-field line. It landed in between three Padres, none of whom relayed the ball back to the infield in time. Kemp scored easily from second base despite getting a poor jump on the ball.“I think (the Padres) just felt that Matt was further along than he was,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. “If they make a play on it, it’s probably a first-and-third situation, or second-and-third. Fortunately for us they didn’t finish the play.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Max Muncy and Manny Machado each hit their 30th home runs of the season, but Kenley Jansen allowed a game-tying homer to Austin Hedges in the ninth inning.Kenta Maeda pitched a scoreless 10th inning. Caleb Ferguson (4-2) pitched a scoreless 11th and 12th to pick up the victory.The Dodgers remained in third place in the National League West, 2 1/2 games out of first place. The Colorado Rockies’ win over the St. Louis Cardinals, combined with the Arizona Diamondbacks’ loss to the Seattle Mariners, left Colorado and Arizona tied for first in the division.Kershaw threw eight innings, matching his longest start of the season. He allowed seven hits, including five singles, did not walk a batter and struck out nine.Machado’s three-run home run in the first inning staked Kershaw to a 3-0 lead. The Dodgers failed to tack on despite putting runners in scoring position in each of the next three innings, and leaving the bases loaded in the fourth. They finished 3-for-12 with runners in scoring position and left eight men on base.A double by Manuel Margot, followed by an RBI single by Freddy Galvis, snapped Kershaw’s shutout bid in the third inning. A solo home run by Franmil Reyes in the seventh inning brought the Padres within 3-2. Muncy’s home to right-center field – also his longest of the year at 445 feet – extended the Dodgers’ lead to 4-2 in the seventh inning.San Diego took advantage of a fielding error by Machado to get a run back in the eighth inning. With Galvis on first base and one out, Wil Myers hit a routine grounder to Machado at shortstop. Machado charged in and tried flipping the ball to Brian Dozier for a forceout at second base, but he missed his target and the ball sailed into right field.The inning continued with Galvis at third base and Myers at first. If Kershaw had not backed up third base on the play, Galvis would have scored easily when Yasiel Puig’s throw from right field missed wide of the bag.Galvis scored anyway when the next batter, Eric Hosmer, grounded out to first base. The inning ended – mercifully for the Dodgers, painfully for the Padres – when Hunter Renfroe’s 106-mph line drive hit Myers in the arm, an automatic out.“I got bailed out,” Kershaw said. “That definitely would’ve scored some runs. It’s fortunate, no other way to say it.”Because of Machado’s error, Galvis’ run was unearned and Kershaw lowered his ERA to 2.39.In the ninth inning, Jansen was called upon to preserve the 4-3 lead. It was his third appearance and his first save opportunity since returning from the disabled list Monday. Like each of the previous two outings, it did not end well.His 2-and-1 pitch to Austin Hedges, a 93-mph cut fastball, missed over the middle of the plate. Hedges connected on his 11th home run of the season, a no-doubt shot to left-center field that tied the game at 4.Jansen finished the inning but knocked a container full of gum to the dugout floor in frustration. He’s allowed a total of five runs in the last three games, losing two and blowing a save Saturday for the first time since July 6.The Dodgers’ two consecutive wins against the Padres, owners of the National League’s worst record, are nice if not necessary. But Jansen’s sudden meltdown invites a larger concern.“This has never happened before,” he said after the game.Roberts said he would try to refrain from using Jansen in Sunday’s series finale. He said he has not decided who will close instead, though he conspicuously chose to remove Maeda after one inning in order to have the right-hander available Sunday.After the Dodgers’ off-day Monday, Jansen will be the closer again for Tuesday’s game against the Texas Rangers, Roberts said. The manager conceded that a mental break might benefit the veteran closer.“Ain’t no mental break,” Jansen said. “I’m fine. I’m good. I don’t need a mental break. Me and (Roberts) already had that conversation. It was a great conversation. Just got to figure out some stuff. I think (Sunday) will be a great day to figure out my stuff, sharpen up, and be ready to go.”center_img PreviousSeveral San Diego Padres players gather in the infield during a blackout in the 12th inning of a baseball game against the Los Angeles Dodgers, Saturday, Aug. 25, 2018, in Los Angeles.

Darren achieves English golf’s first DEAFinitely Inclusive Mark

first_img27 Sep 2016 Darren achieves English golf’s first DEAFinitely Inclusive Mark Lincolnshire PGA professional Darren Game has achieved golf’s first DEAFinitely Inclusive Mark in England. DEAFinitely Inclusive is UK Deaf Sports’ programme to provide deaf and hard of hearing people with information about clubs and facilities so they can be confident of receiving a fun and friendly sporting experience. The DEAFinitely Inclusive Mark is a quality assurance mark that deaf and hard of hearing people will receive a good service, including: • Coaches trained in deaf awareness • Clear details of how to contact the club by text or email • Support and expertise on how to develop as a player coach or volunteer Game, who teaches at his indoor Bourne Golf Centre and his Lincolnshire Junior Academy at Toft Golf Club, said: “Golf is a great sport for deaf and disabled people, whether it’s developing your own skills and etiquette or playing as part of a team. “Making the game accessible to all within the local community is a passion of mine and obtaining the DEAFinitely Inclusive Mark will open up the game to more people.” Becoming DEAFinitely Inclusive was a key aim for Game as he continued to develop his skills and make his existing coaching and playing opportunities more inclusive of deaf and hard of hearing people. He is a keen advocate that golf can be a game for all and has worked hard to develop links in his local area. These include Willoughby School where pupils with a range of impairments have benefitted from being involved in golf. Two of the pupils are continuing their golf at Toft, where Game has a junior development role. Jamie Blair, Disability Manager for England Golf commented: “It is really pleasing to see a coach and a facility make a strong commitment to including deaf participants in their golfing activity. “England Golf will continue to encourage more facilities to adopt the Mark and engage with their local deaf networks in partnership with UK Deaf Sport and England Deaf Golf.” Clive Breedon, National Participation Officer from UK Deaf Sport commented: “UK Deaf Sport are very pleased to accredit Bourne Golf Centre and their work with The Lincolnshire Junior Golf Academy as DEAFinitely Inclusive. Darren is keen to make golf accessible to people who are deaf or hard of hearing so we look forward to supporting him to do so.”last_img read more

The riddle of Zarra’s goal: pure interior, shin or ankle?

first_imgThe third party of the group was disputed. Spain came from beating the United States (3-1) and Chile (2-0). England had lost against all odds against the Americans and defeated the ‘Red’ in South America. Guillermo Eizaguirre and his men in red were satisfied with the draw to be first in the group and go to the second phase and fight for the title.The English’s obligation to win was reflected from the beginning with a brilliant and aggressive start, also promoted by a wet and very fast grass. It was evident that they had a great team with established players such as Stanley Matthews, who was then 35 years old and who would win the first Ballon d’Or in 1956, along with Ramsey, Bentley, Finney … Piru GainzaGainza disputed 33 parties with the Selection in which it marked 10 goals. It was a very fast left winger and he always looked at the opposite goal. He formed alongside Iriondo (far right), Venancio (right inside), Zarra (center forward) and Panizo (left inside) a mythical Athletic forward. Among the five they scored 848 goals in the League and Cup. Only Venancio was out of the call for the 1950 World Cup in Brazil. Spain was returning to a World Cup 16 years after Italy 34. It had not been present in France 38 due to the Civil War and then came the hiatus of the Second World War. For the English it was their debut. Antoni Ramallets, in goal, without gloves and with knee pads, confirming with his stops and, above all, with his starts, the confidence that the coach had given him. The Barca goalkeeper had not been a starter in the first game of the World Cup, Ignacio Eizaguirre played, but the other Eizaguirre, Guillermo, the coach, gave him his favor in the second match against Chile and repeated against the English. The reaction of the English who were out of the World Cup is described as furious and the last quarter of an hour of the National Team with total control of the match is defined as spectacular. Panizo is charged with a shot to the crossbar and Zarra another to the post, but the game ends with that solitary goal by the Basque striker, on whom so many liters of ink have been dedicated.Since 1929, Spain had not been able to win back to England. By It is impossible to have a minimal notion of football and not to have heard, heard, read or dreamed about Telmo Zarraonaindia’s goal for England in the 1950 World Cup. It was at the legendary and legendary Maracanã stadium in Rio de Janeiro. Both assured the Spanish team to be among the first four, as it was finally, after tying with Uruguay and losing the last two games against Brazil and Sweden.That fourth place turned out to be the best achieved by Spain in a World Championship until 60 years later he achieved the star in the World Cup in South Africa with another goal for history, that of Iniesta in Johannesburg.The 1950 World Cup in Brazil will be remembered especially for two goals. The most important was the Uruguayan Gigghia in the final against Brazil that made the unforgettable Maracanazo possible, but el ours ’, that of Zarra to England, meant beating the team that was one of the best teams of the moment. Or at least that’s how they considered themselves. Three p.m. Maracana was not full, Brazil was not playing, but it was packed. Spain, red shirt and blue pants. England, in black and white. Piru Gainza, who was in doubt, was the Spanish captain. Choose the opponent field, put the ball into play Zarra. The two teams under the same tactical pattern, the 1-3-2-5 of the time, which in terms of occupying the spaces had a better staggering of men between the lines.Gonzalvo III, a flying theorist, was embedded in the defense to avoid inferiority. Alonso and Gonzalvo II were in charge of the English extreme theorists, Finney and Mathews. Puchades linked with Panizo and Igoa. Zarra was the offensive reference with Basora and Gainza working the entire band. Zarra’s goal seen from another angle. What is not so clear is with what part of his limb the striker hit the ball. In interviews given after the event, he himself leaves different versions. The blurred and black-and-white images, as they correspond to the time, hint that he touched the ball with the inside of his foot, but it could have been with the upper part of the ankle or the pimple itself, which Zarra called cane.Always witty in one of the thousand opportunities in which he was asked about the goal for the rest of his life, he joked about whether the goal had been half scored between Matías Prats, official narrator, and him. “It seems to me that we marked it between the two. With the verbiage he has, he must have misled Williams, who jumped to his left so that I could shoot the other way. ” The second head of Europe after ChurchillTelmo Zarra, who would be 100 years old on January 20, 2021, must be treated as a lord, used and voiced as soon as the conversation is about scorers. The highest historical scorer in the League with 251 goals in 277 games, 0.91 on average, only Leo Messi, in November 2014, was able to break the record reaching 253 in 289 games, 0.87 on average.In the National Team, he played 20 matches between March 11, 1945 (Portugal-Spain, 2-2 at the Jamor National Stadium) and June 17, 1951 (Sweden-Spain, 0-0, Rasunda Stadium in Stockholm ) and garnered 20 goals, with a tally of four goals (6-3 against Switzerland) and five doublets. He scored four goals in the six games of the World Cup in Brazil, three in the two matches of the qualifying phase and 13 in the 12 friendlies he played. The starting eleven who beat England poses before the start of the match: standing, Ramallets, Gonzalvo III, Alonso, Gonzalvo II and Puchades. Crouched, Basra, Igoa, Zarra, Panizo, Gaínza and Parra. Precisely in his last international match, posters announcing the match with the photo of Zarra and a legend: “Admire the best head in Europe after Churchill” could be found on the streets of Stockholm. To the amusement of the interested party, his reputation as a header had crossed borders and reached the Nordic countries where, as good lovers of British football, they especially valued the aerial game. Over time, Telmo confessed that when he began to play he was afraid to finish with that part of the body and that he did not learn to pitch until he arrived at Athletic and Iriondo and Gainza bombarded centers in training sessions.In fact, he was so afraid of the collisions with the rival defenders that he based his entire game on the anticipation and the unmarking and thus arrive with an advantage to the auction area and with the defenses as far as possible from contact. Also on the elaboration of both there are several versions. The longest narrates that after the service with the hand of Ramallets on Gonzalvo III, the ball passed through Gainza, Panizo, Puchades, again Gainza, a cut by the English Wright happens and the ball ends at the feet of Gabriel Alonso. From here there are images and the short version.The lateral runs his band and when he reaches the vertex of the large area, he centers past the furthest post, where Gainza appears, following the play that leaves the ball dead, Igoa does not reach the auction in the first instance, but Zarra does. The world turned upside down, Gainza turning Zarra upside down, when it would have been normal for the winger to center with his left foot and the battering ram finished off with a head. Matías Prats CañeteThe legendary journalist was one of the best-known voices on Spanish radio between the 40s and 70s. He was a narrator of the NO-DO and his particular way of broadcasting soccer games and bullfights created school in Spanish journalism. He not only relayed Zarra’s goal, but also Marcelino’s to the USSR that gave Spain its first Eurocup. RamalletsHe was baptized ‘El Gato de Maracaná’ after his magnificent performance against the English team. Throughout his career, he was the least goal-scoring goalkeeper in the League five times wearing the Barcelona shirt. He played 35 games with Spain in which he conceded 51 goals. ‘Uncle’ BenitoGuillermo Eizaguirre was officially the national coach, but the figure of Benito Díaz as a field coach was always highly valued by the internationals who played in that World Cup, to the point that they considered him the true ‘brain’ of the technical team.The tactics section was on his side and he was always considered a scholar of the matter and especially of the WM being one of his great defenders in Spanish football. He trained Real Sociedad at the same time as he was in charge of the National Team and at the end of his career he could not shake off the reputation of a defensive coach. The obituary of Daily HeraldThe defeat of the ‘pross’ was so traumatic that the following day the Labor newspaper “Daily Herald” published the following note: “Our affectionate memory of English football, who died in Rio de Janeiro on July 2, 1950. A large circle friends regrets his painful loss. R.I.P. Note: The body will be cremated and its ashes transferred to Spain ». Ramallets stops a shot by the English during the first part of the match. The party went to rest with a goalless draw. Spain was worth it. Not the English. As soon as the second part began, the thousand versions arrived. Even, it was gotten to comment, due to the fame of headboard that Zarra had, that the goal had been with the head. No, it was with his right leg, to boat soon, that is indisputable.last_img read more

UNFPA Calls for Clean Environment to Encourage Facility Delivery

first_imgAs the Government of Liberia and partners intensify efforts to encourage facility delivery by pregnant women, UNFPA, the United Nations Population Fund has called for hospitals to remain clean and comfortable.“We cannot advocate for facility delivery when health centers remain in shambles and unattractive,” says UNFPA Liberia Resident Representative Ms. Ratidzai Ndhlovu. “When a woman walks into a clinic or hospital to deliver, she must see the facility as the best place for her delivery. We don’t want pregnant women to hesitate to come to the institution because it is so uncomfortable”“UNFPA is committed to remain a trusted partner to the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare,” Ms. Ndhlovu said during an appreciation program on Tuesday 14 January, by the administration of the James N. Davies Memorial Hospital for UNFPA’s contribution to the face-lifting process of the hospital.  The James N. Davies Hospital is located in Paynesville, a suburb of Monrovia and is a maternal and child health hospital that serves a population of about 250,000 people.She said because maternal health is at the core of UNFPA’s mission, the fund will continue to support activities of the Ministry of Health to prevent maternal death by providing technical assistance for family planning, strengthening and upgrading of health facilities and referral mechanisms, improving midwife training curricula. It will also continue supporting human resources management; mobilizing communities and promoting women’s rights. “UNFPA is committed to all efforts that promote the reproductive health and rights of women and girls; ensuring that no woman dies giving life.”In Liberia four women die every day due to pregnancy related complications. In appreciation of UNFPA’s gesture, the Chief Medical Officer and Deputy Health Ministry Dr. Bernice Dahn pleaded for direct UNFPA support to the James N. Davies hospital. “This hospital attends mostly to pregnant women and their newborns, and children and it is one of the hospitals with very high newborn deaths,” she said.In March 2011, the Government of Liberia and partners launched the roadmap for accelerated reduction of maternal and newborn mortality and morbidity in the country. The roadmap guides the delivery of basic, essential and quality reproductive health care services to the people including institutional delivery.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

A.V. winery, vineyard tours set to begin

first_imgDesignation as an American Viticulture Area would mean the Antelope Valley has unique topography and soil that can produce a unique grape, officials said. The four areas would be the Antelope Valley, Leona Valley, Acton and Agua Dulce area, plus the Tehachapi-Cummings Valley area. “Wine connoisseurs will buy wine for that extra distinction and nuance,” said Robert Woods, association spokesman and Leona Valley Winery technology director. Bob and Patty Souza, owners of Souza Family Vineyards in Tehachapi, where they grow grapes on four acres to make Primitivo Zinfandel wine, said they are excited about the tours. “We are thrilled they included us because we are sort of an outpost,” Bob Souza said. The Souzas said they are planning to add a wine-tasting room and establish a bed-and-breakfast this summer. The winegrowers association is a nonprofit organization that was formed last October to promote wine production and awareness about the industry in the greater Antelope Valley area.

Local vintners began replanting grapevines about 25 years ago, and the region now boasts five wineries, 33 vineyards and three tasting rooms. “People will stay at hotels, visiting areas and wine-tasting rooms,” Kilmer said. Kilmer said there will be four- and eight-hour tours, with the option of staying at a bed-and-breakfast inn that is planned at a winery in Tehachapi. Tour prices and information will be made available in May on the association’s Web site, www.avwinegrowers.org. Association officials also said they are applying to have four local areas federally designated as distinct wine-producing regions, which will increase the value of the grapes and local wine production. LANCASTER – The newly formed Antelope Valley Winegrowers Association will launch wine tours this summer to boost tourism, business and job growth, officials said Tuesday. The tours are scheduled to start in mid- to late June with the help of two limousine companies and will involve wineries and vineyards stretching from Agua Dulce to Tehachapi. “We have Napa to the north, and Temecula, Santa Barbara and Paso Robles. We are in the middle,” said Chantel Kilmer, association president and marketing director of Cameo Vineyards. “How difficult would it be to stop on the way through?” During a news conference, organizers noted that the Antelope Valley has a long and rich history of wine-making that ended with Prohibition in the 1920s. last_img read more
