Share 43 Views   one commentcenter_img Share Photo credit: Brainz.orgDominica could begin shipment of over seven million gallons of water per month by the end of the first quarter of 2012.Director of Sisserou Water Inc Atherton Martin says the first phase of shipment of bulk water will target the Caribbean. He says there has been dialogue with the various ministries on the progress of the shipment of bulk water.Martin was responding to criticisms by the Minister for Water Resource Management Reginald Austrie that there is still no progress after three years since a license was issued for the shipment of bulk water. Martin said there has been tremendous levels of cooperation between Sisserou Water Inc and several government ministries about plans to export the country’s water.According to him, a significant amount of work has been undertaken between a seven year span.“There is going to be a first phase of water exports that will target the Caribbean. That will be possible because the existing loading facility of DOWASCO along the west coast is sufficient to supply the volume that would be on order from the Caribbean market. Letters of intent are being finalized,” he saidHe said the next phase would be to complete the financing arrangement for the larger water terminal component in Marigot.“That will now get water ready to export to markets much further afield like North America and the Middle East,” he said.He said receiving facilities for water in the region still remains a major problem.

first_imgEC traveled to Lawrenceburg last night. Both JV and Varsity walked out with the win, but it took both teams an extra set to get the job done.‘We started really slow and lacked intensity in every set which forced us to battle out of a hole, but the girls did a good job at holding their composure to battle back.

Everton given Traore work permit

first_img “Now I am trying to do the same at Everton, but in a better way because I want to improve and become a better player year after year.” Injuries are continuing to affect the squad, and with midfielder Steven Pienaar absent with a groin issue against West Brom, Martinez lost full-back Seamus Coleman to a hamstring problem. Everton will assess the Republic of Ireland international over the next 24 hours, but he could miss next Tuesday’s Merseyside derby at Anfield. “The next 24 hours are going to be vital to find out how he feels,” said Martinez. “Seamus is a really fit boy, so when he got that feeling something was wrong with his hamstring we needed to take that seriously. “We will find out over the next few hours the extent of the injury. “Steven Pienaar had to come off against Norwich and since then he has been working hard to get back to full fitness and it was a little bit short for Monday. “We will assess him over the next few days. It shouldn’t be too big a problem in his groin area.” On the upside, Martinez hopes to have Gerard Deulofeu back from a hamstring injury soon, as the on-loan Barcelona youngster has been out of action since December 14. “Gerard is progressing really well. A member of our medical department went over to Barcelona to find out where he is (in terms of fitness),” the manager added. “It is a bit more complicated injury because it affects the tendon and that can get re-injured very easily. “We are happy with his progress and he is doing really well and I don’t think it will be long before he is back. “We reassess him every three days. Hopefully he will carry on with no setbacks.” Press Association “Talks are ongoing with Monaco to secure the 23-year-old’s services.” Manager Roberto Martinez publicly confirmed their interest following Monday’s 1-1 draw at West Brom, saying: “Lacina is a player who I really like and is someone who would fit in really well in the role we want the player to come in. “He is a very talented footballer. He is only 23 and has already had a couple of moves (totalling) nearly £30million, but every work permit is a difficult one and we will try our best.” The 6ft 8ins striker is being brought in to replace Nikica Jelavic, who was sold to Hull last week, and will provide support for fellow on-loan forward Romelu Lukaku, who is currently Martinez’s first choice. Lukaku provided the knock-down for Kevin Mirallas to score the opening goal in the 1-1 draw at the Hawthorns, only for Uruguay international Diego Lugano to register his first goal in English football to secure a point for the Baggies. “We lost two points, you have to be realistic,” said Lukaku. “In the first half we dominated but we didn’t control the game as we should have done, and we have to learn from it and do better in the next few games.” On his return to the Hawthorns, where he spent last season on loan scoring 17 goals, Lukaku told evertontv: “I had a great time at West Brom and I hope they enjoyed my football and I left some good memories at the club. Everton are looking to finalise a loan deal for Monaco striker Lacina Traore after obtaining a work permit for the Ivory Coast international. The Toffees have received the paperwork they need to bring the 23-year-old to Goodison Park on a contract until the end of the season and will now complete the formalities of the deal with the French club. “Everton confirm they have been granted a work permit for Lacina Traore,” said a spokesman. last_img read more

Graeme McDowell and Russell Knox share lead ahead of Monday finish in Mexico

first_imgGraeme McDowell and Russell Knox will go into Monday morning primed to battle it out for the OHL Classic title in Mexico after a rain-interrupted Sunday. That left them two shots clear of Jason Bohn, two under for the day after 12, with Scott Brown and overnight leader Derek Fathauer a further two shots back in a share of fourth. McDowell looked to have missed his chance here with a third round of 70, but began his recovery with three birdies in a row between the fifth and seventh to make the turn in 33. He picked up further shots on the 10th, 12th and 13th to move level with Knox, who had four straight birdies between the third and sixth, made the turn in 31 and then birdied the 11th to go clear. He played one more hole before the stoppage. Bohn had eagled the par-five fifth but then immediately dropped a shot before birdies on the seventh and eighth. However, he bogeyed the 12th to lose ground before darkness fell. Fathauer, seeking his first ever win, had held the overnight lead but the occasion perhaps got the better of him as he dropped shots on the first and 10th holes, with a sole birdie on the ninth. McDowell and Knox shared the lead at 19 under par, two shots clear of the chasing pack, when play was suspended due to darkness late on Sunday after a lengthy rain delay. Scotland’s Knox had held the outright lead until Northern Irishman McDowell birdied the 13th, the last hole he played before the suspension, to join him at six under for the round. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Back-to-form Man United thump Norwich, Southampton stun Leicester

first_imgLONDON, England (Reuters) – Manchester United roared back to form with a 4-0 demolition of bottom club Norwich City but Chelsea maintained their grip on fourth place in the Premier League with a 3-0 defeat of Burnley at Stamford Bridge yesterday.Southampton produced the biggest surprise of the day as they gained sweet revenge for a 9-0 home drubbing by Leicester City in October, coming from a goal down to win the return 2-1.Everton shrugged off their FA Cup defeat by Liverpool as their improved league form continued with a 1-0 home win against Brighton & Hove Albion to move level on points with 10th-placed Arsenal who drew 1-1 at Crystal Palace.Wolverhampton Wanderers were held to a 1-1 draw at home by Newcastle United. Leaders Liverpool can break Manchester City’s record for the best start to a Premier League campaign if they win at Tottenham Hotspur in the day’s late kickoff.Making his 200th appearance for Manchester United, Marcus Rashford struck twice for the Reds in a dominant display that left them in fifth spot, five points behind Chelsea. United were clearly smarting from their chastening League Cup defeat by Manchester City and swarmed all over Norwich.Rashford rewarded their dominance when he side-footed in Juan Mata’s cross in the 27th minute but the hosts were unable to build on their lead before the break. Norwich capitulated after halftime though and goalkeeper Tim Krul needlessly conceded a penalty that Rashford tucked away.Mata then set up Anthony Martial for the third before substitute Mason Greenwood put the icing on the cake for the home side.Chelsea’s home form has been a thorn in their side but they put that aside to thump Burnley 3-0 with a penalty from Jorginho and goals by Tammy Abraham and Callum Hudson-Odoi. Burnley offered little as they suffered a fourth successive league defeat.When second-placed Leicester took an early lead through Dennis Praet, Southampton’s fans must have feared the worst.But the south coast club have made a startling improvement since that dark October night and stunned the hosts with a fortunate leveller from midfielder Stuart Armstrong.Danny Ings, who had missed a slew of chances earlier in the match, struck the winner – his 14th league goal of the season – in the 81st minute after collecting a Che Adams pass.Leicester thought they had levelled in the 90th minute when Jonny Evans nodded in a free kick from James Maddison, but the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) judged the defender to be in an offside position.last_img read more

Byron wins to reach Cup Series playoffs, knocks out Johnson

first_img Associated Press Television News Written By COMMENT WATCH US LIVE First Published: 30th August, 2020 09:38 IST William Byron snaked his way through a smoky crash late Saturday night at Daytona International Speedway and narrowly avoided another melee a few laps later.Those moves got him to victory lane for the first time in his young NASCAR Cup Series career and back in the playoffs for the second consecutive season.They also helped knock out Hendrick Motorsports teammate Jimmie Johnson, a seven-time series champion whose final season won’t end with another title.Winless in 120 races, Johnson made a trip to victory lane to congratulate Byron and the No. 24 team, the one now directed by Johnson’s former and long-time crew chief, Chad Knaus.“It’s a big win for Chad Knaus and William Byron,” Johnson said. “I really felt like we had a way to transfer, to win, or point our way in and things just got ugly. Unfortunate, but that’s plate racing.”Byron won the race in overtime after two late cautions and locked up one of the three postseason berths available going into the finale. Matt DiBenedetto finished 12th and secured the final spot. Clint Bowyer wrapped up a berth at the end of the opening stage.“It was too eventful,” said DiBenedetto, whose parents drove down from North Carolina to watch from the stands. “I’m mentally worn out. I’m gonna sleep great tonight, but there was so much going on there at the end.”Chase Elliott finished second, followed by Denny Hamlin, Martin Truex Jr. and Bubba Wallace.Johnson looked as if he would land one of those three playoff spots. But he got shuffled back in the final stage and then got caught up in a wreck in the closing laps that started when Hamlin made contact with Joey Logano. Byron squeezed between the two, took the lead and held on after a green-white-checkered finish.It was the ninth overtime finish at Daytona’s summertime race in the last 13 years.Byron didn’t care how he got it, just that he finally did.“It’s been a hard couple of years in the Cup Series and trying to get my first win and trying to gel with this team,” Byron said. “These guys have done an awesome job and to be in the playoffs is amazing, man.”About 20,000 fans spread out across Daytona’s massive motorsports stadium and were treated to a frantic finish. The race was pretty clean for most of the night, but got crazy down the stretch.Tyler Reddick started the first multi-car crash by trying to block Kyle Busch after getting a huge push to take the lead. Busch clipped Reddick’s bumper, sending him into the outside wall and collecting several other cars.Busch, Erik Jones, Kurt Busch, Austin Dillon, Ryan Newman, Ricky Stenhouse Jr. and others were knocked out.“(Reddick) just ran out of talent,” Newman said. “All it takes is one goofball to make a mistake.”Reddick accepted responsibility for the wreck.“If someone made that move on me, I’d be pretty mad, too,” he said.Byron swerved his way through clouds of smoke to stay in the mix there. He was even luckier after Hamlin and Logano got together.“I wasn’t going to lift,” Byron said. “It was awesome.”He did a burnout that included a few spins through Daytona’s wet infield grass and then headed to victory lane for the first time in three years.Johnson met him there, quite possibly a visual changing of the guard at Hendrick. The 22-year-old hotshot is headed back to the postseason with a long-awaited victory and the 44-year-old veteran is sliding into retirement without the storybook ending he talked all week about wanting to at least maintain as a possibility.LIBERTY CONNECTIONByron has taken remote classes at Liberty University, and the winning car carried sponsorship from the school. The deal was brokered between Hendrick Motorsports and Jerry Falwell Jr., who stepped down this week shrouded in scandal as head of the university.WALLACE REACTSWallace said before the race that there was not much of a dialogue among NASCAR drivers regarding sitting out the Cup Series regular-season finale at Daytona.NASCAR pressed on at its historic track while other sports postponed games and practices this week in the wake of the shooting of Jacob Blake, a Black man, by a white police officer in Kenosha, Wisconsin.“We still have a lot of work to do as a nation to make things better for us, our next generation coming up through,” Wallace told NBC Sports before the race. “Us not following suit (with other sports) does not mean that we’re standing down. We still know what’s on our table or what’s on our plate to go out and accomplish and attempt to accomplish to make this a better place.”UP NEXTThe playoffs begin at next Sunday Darlington Raceway.Image credits: AP center_img SUBSCRIBE TO US LIVE TV Last Updated: 30th August, 2020 09:38 IST Byron Wins To Reach Cup Series Playoffs, Knocks Out Johnson William Byron snaked his way through a smoky crash late Saturday night at Daytona International Speedway and narrowly avoided another melee a few laps later FOLLOW USlast_img read more
