FC Kutubu is the new franchise in NSL

first_imgSoccer New kid on the block, Kutubu Football Club (FC Kutubu) is believed to be the only franchise in the Highlands region to join the National Soccer Premier League in the country. This was revealed during the club’s launching by proud sponsor and Kutubu Security Service Executive Chairman John Kapi Natto last Saturday at Ubugo soccer oval, Kutubu, Southern Highlands province. The PNG Football Soccer Association president was also in Hekari Region to witness the 21st Hekari Soccer Association’s grand final as well as unveiling of the new Soccer franchise, its name and logo. In what will be proud moment for the people of Kutubu, they will finally market their raw talent outside of their village. “You all have impressed me. I was shocked when I saw you play at the recently completed Besta Cup and you shocked everyone. You’ve done us proud by going that far and putting Hekari Soccer Association third in the country is the biggest achievement,” Kapi Natto said. It is certainly a dream comes true for various people that had worked behind the scene to have brought this dream into reality. Stepping into the elite competition of the PNG Football Association is something the late Senior Kapi Natto had dreamt of, which is to use sports to change the mindset of its people in that part of the region. “This is your good opportunity now and you got to have respect and be disciplined to get up there,” said Kapi Natto Although the boys will be new in this elite competition, the talent is no doubt massive in that part of the province and with FC Kutubu now pushing its claim to compete in the National Soccer Premier League, most of these talents will be now be exposed. “Thank you coach Mathew Witu for your efforts in bringing the boys this far. You all have done well and certainly like I’ve told you in Lae that if you prove it to me, I will take you to the next level in football and I am here today to launch your new football club in the premier league in the country,” Kapi Natto said. Kapi Natto said you are the lucky ones that will not only represent Hekari Region or Kutubu but the entire Highlands region. “Be disciplined, stay focus, work hard and respect one another to compete at this level,” Kapi Natto said. FC Kutubu will be traveling to Goroka this weekend to be based there with the NSL set to kick off on the 7th of December.last_img read more

Journalist denies talk of Man City deal speeding up – Club’s…

first_imgManchester City are yet to make a €70m offer for Kalidou Koulibaly, and it is unlikely the deal will be finalised ‘within a few hours’ as has been claimed. That’s according to Italian journalist Ciro Venerato, who has dismissed rumours regarding the Senegalese defender’s potential move to the Etihad.City are keen to add another centre back to their squad after securing Nathan Aké’s signature earlier this summer and have been heavily linked with a move for the Napoli centre back for several months.The two clubs are believed to have been locked in negotiations over as asking price, with Napoli chief Aurelio De Laurentiis holding out for a big fee.Embed from Getty ImagesManchester City are thought to be leading the race for his signature and a report today indicated they have made a second bid and the transfer ‘could be a question of hours’.Venerato says that is not the case, though.“Koulibaly-City slowed down in time. According to the Senegalese entourage, there is still no €70m offer from Manchester,” he told Radio Kiss Kiss, relayed by Calcio Napoli 1926.“Even Napoli brake on the alleged acceleration of the last hours. “The times are therefore not as short as some believed, the operation will not close within a few hours. “The entourage says the news of the offer that comes close to what De Laurentiis is asking is not true. In fact from Naples they let it be known that to date the City has not yet formulated this offer.“Until there is an agreement, the inclusion of other teams, such as PSG and Manchester United, is not excluded.”Embed from Getty ImagesIt seems the asking price remains the biggest issue in the negotiations, with City yet to offer what Napoli want.That seems to be €70m or above, with it well established that they need to raise funds after spending big on striker Victor Osimhen this summer.Their need to raise funds could end up working in City’s favour, something journalist Mimmo Malfitano can see happening given his comments to the same station.“Napoli are respecting the times,” Napoli Magazine quote him saying.“There was a flourishing period, the one with Benitez, with Sarri, then there was a moment of confusion with Ancelotti, and now we are trying to restart with Gattuso.“Now we are looking for young people with great motivation to replace the players who have reached the age of 30, who have given so much to Napoli but who objectively no longer have the necessary incentives to start again. “In my opinion, the money offered by City for Koulibaly will be accepted by De Laurentiis. In the end, you have to capitalise, and you can’t stand still for too long.  “Between the January market and Osimhen, he spent 150 million euros and something will have to be paid back. “Indeed, Giuntoli must sell before buying. At the moment, this is the Naples policy.”by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayHero Wars根本不可能获得这个宝藏!来证明我们错了Hero WarsUndoForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this City-Building Game is a Must-Have.

Roach, Holder rout Jaguars for 55

first_imgTenacious spells from Kemar Roach and Jason Holder routed Guyana Jaguars for 55 yesterday at Providence while Kraigg Brathwaite carried his bat through the second innings as the Barbados Pride set the Jaguars a target of 330 heading into day three. Responding to Pride’s first innings score of 174, the West Indies Championship title holders, Jaguars resumed on 19-2 and lasted just 77 minutes on day two as they stumbled to their lowest total in the Professional Cricket League era, surpassing their previous record of 66 against the same opponents at the same venue in 2014. Pride went on to pile on 210 all out in 66.3 overs to set Jaguars an imposing total when they begin their chase today. Watched by an almost shell-shocked handful of spectators under hot but windy conditions, Roach led the destruction on his way to five for 20, beginning with the wicket of the Jaguars’ skipper, Leon Johnson who guided a low catch to Brathwaite at first slip.  Ten minutes later, Vishual Singh feathered a catch to Shamarh Brooks behind the stumps off the right arm seamer as the hosts slipped to 38 for five. Jaguars then lost their next three wickets for one run.Kemar Roach bowls to Keemo Paul (Romario Samaroo photo)The 31-year-old Roach, then made light work of the lower order, removing Keemo Paul and Romario Shepherd (12) to end with his 15th five-wicket haul.The West Indies test captain, Holder maintained the pressure at the opposite end and reaped the rewards with four for 24. The 28-year-old seamer made the first breakthrough of the day with the wicket of Shimron Hetmyer who added four to his overnight score of 10 before leaving his bat hanging to get an edge to Ashley Nurse at second slipWith the two overnight batsmen in the pavilion, Christopher Barnwell survived a chance when on five but was run out after he attempted a single off the chance and was sent back.Pride began their second innings with a 119-run lead and Kevin Sinclair, looking to give his side a fighting chance, bowled Shayne Moseley for 15 to see Pride going to supper on 23 for one. The off-spinner then returned to strike in the first over after the break, following up being hit for a six over long on by Brooks with an arm ball that clipped the top of off-stump.Brathwaite carried his bat throughout the innings to end on 84 not out after toiling for almost five hours. He faced 180 balls and stroked 10 boundaries including a six.Brathwaite and Jonathan Carter forged an 81-run stand for the third wicket. Carter, who was dropped on zero, carved six fours and one six during his 78-minute stay at the crease. He scored 43 from 65 balls before being hit on the pads in front of the stumps by Barnwell. Barnwell also trapped concussion substitute, Tevyn Walcott leg before wicket without troubling the score.Nevertheless, Brathwaite, joined by Holder, saw the visitors to 129 for five at tea. The pair added 38 for the sixth wicket until the test captain’s stumps was uprooted by left-arm seamer Raymon Reifer which put an end to his 75-minute innings that spanned 56 balls for 22 runs and ignited a crowd pleasing celebration from the bowler.Ashley Nurse partnered with Brathwaite, adding 19 from 40 balls before he was dismissed by Veerasammy Permaul. His wicket opened the door for Paul to run through the lower order and end with four for 52. Barnwell and Sinclair had two wickets each for 26 and 28 runs respectively. Jaguars begin their chase today at 14.00 hours.last_img read more

Caribbean Countries Receive US8 Million to Reduce Health Risks from Toxic Chemicals

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppPort of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago. 5November, 2016 –  Exposure to toxic chemicals found in household cleaning products, processed foods and even clothing can severely damage a person’s health. Dr. Ahmad Khan, Director, Basel Convention Regional Centre for Training and Technology Transfer for the Caribbean (BCRC-Caribbean) stated that some pesticides, cleaning agents and industrial chemicals contain hazardous properties, which can cause cancer, developmental delays, dysfunction of the reproductive organs and reduce immunity.Dr Khan explained that one particular group of these toxic chemicals is referred to as Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPS). He added that exposure to POPS can be through direct contact with the chemicals, consumption of contaminated foods or environmental exposure (by air, water and soil). In light of this, Dr Khan emphasized the need for the Caribbean region to make the management of toxic chemicals to protect human health and the environment a priority.Recognizing the importance of this issue, the BCRC-Caribbean, in collaboration with the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO), prepared a project document outlining the work required to strengthen the capacity of Caribbean countries to manage POPS. They also approached the Global Environment Facility (GEF) and were successful in acquiring approximately US$8 million dollars to support the project. The Caribbean Public Health Agency (CARPHA) will implement the necessary activities to assist eight (8) Caribbean territories update their National Implementation Plans (NIPs) for POPS management, which includes the conduct of in-country POPs inventories and related capacity development.Dr. Khan said “The BCRC-Caribbean is committed to deliver services to our member Parties under the four ‘chemicals’ Conventions (Basel, Rotterdam, Stockholm, Minamata) that govern the environmentally sound management of hazardous wastes and chemicals. Through the successful implementation of this regional project, we will be able to establish the extent of new POPs in our countries and more importantly develop Action Plans to target the elimination and/or reduction in the use of these particularly harmful chemicals.”CARPHA Executive Director, Dr. C. James Hospedales, also pledged his commitment to reducing the Region’s risk. He said “The execution of this project will help strengthen the capacities of Member States to better manage hazardous chemicals with a view to implementing environmentally sound mechanisms for the storage, abandonment of use, identification of alternatives to use and final disposal/destruction of these types of chemicals.”In addition, the BCRC-Caribbean will host a Regional Workshop from November 8-10, 2016 in Trinidad and Tobago to initiate an update of the participating countries’ NIPs, POPs inventories and related capacity development. During the workshop, conducted by CARPHA, country representatives will present an update on the status of implementation of their NIP Action Plans.The regional representatives will receive training on the assessment of ‘new’ POPs. CARPHA experts will follow up the workshop by assisting investigations in each participating country to update the NIPs.Countries benefitting from this project are Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, Belize, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Suriname and Trinidad and Tobago. Related Items: Background The Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs) is a global treaty to protect human health and the environment from chemicals that remain intact in the environment for long periods, become widely distributed geographically, accumulate in the fatty tissue of humans and wildlife, and have harmful impacts on human health or on the environment.The Basel Convention on the Control of Transboundary Movements of Hazardous Wastes and their Disposal is the most comprehensive global environmental treaty on hazardous and other wastes. It aims to protect human health and the environment against the adverse effects resulting from the generation, management, transboundary movements and disposal of hazardous and other wastes.The Caribbean Public Health Agency (CARPHA) is the Region’s collective response to strengthening and reorienting our health system approach to address the changing nature of public health challenges.center_img Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApplast_img read more
