Broncos stun Saints

first_imgSaints, who had lost just once in the league prior to Sunday’s trip which pitted top against bottom, forced the additional time thanks to Regan Grace’s dramatic last-gasp try.But man of the match Smith showed great composure to land the winning kick when the Broncos took a couple of tackles after a knock-on from Saints to set up the winning moment.There was no sign of what was to come when tries from skipper James Roby and Luke Thompson helped Saints to a 12-0 lead after 10 minutes.When you beat the league leaders! Just that!!!! @LondonBroncosRL win!!! pic.twitter.com/RUCNyGZPsy— London Broncos (@LondonBroncosRL) June 9, 2019At that stage it looked as though a routine win was on the cards, but the Broncos were level at the break thanks to an interception score from Ryan Morgan and James Cunningham’s converted try.Mark Percival crossed to put Saints back ahead early in the second half but Morgan’s second and a try from captain Jay Pitts had the Broncos in dreamland.Grace appeared to have ruined the party with his try in the final minute, only for Smith to spark huge celebrations from the Broncos faithful and end Saints’ seven-match winning Super League run.There was more late drama in Sunday’s other contest as Tony Smith’s first game in charge of struggling Hull KR ended in a 19-18 reverse at home to Wigan Warriors.It appeared as though the match was also headed for golden point until Sam Powell nailed a timely drop goal for the Warriors, who scored tries through George Williams, Dan Sarginson, Joe Burgess and Liam Marshall to ruin the day for former Leeds Rhinos and Warrington Wolves boss Smith.

McGregor posts $50,000 bond, released after arraignment

McGregor is facing criminal charges in the wake of a backstage melee he allegedly instigated that has forced the removal of three fights from UFC’s biggest card of the year. Video footage appears to show the promotion’s most bankable star throwing a hand truck at a bus full of fighters after a Thursday news conference for UFC 223 at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center. (AP Photo/Julio Cortez)NEW YORK — Cocksure and uncouth, Conor McGregor was never afraid to defy authority.He dressed in fur coats and swung chairs at news conferences, reaped the riches of his dalliance with boxing, and demanded his boss cut him an ownership stake in the MMA promotion that made him one of the sport’s most notorious names.ADVERTISEMENT Recto seeks to establish Taal rehab body to aid community, eruption victims Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. Cabuyao City rising above the ashes through volunteerism Best of all time McGregor was arraigned Friday on charges of felony criminal mischief charges and misdemeanor assault, menacing and reckless endangerment charges following a backstage melee he sparked at a UFC event in New York City.He spoke only to acknowledge that he understood the conditions of his release, saying, “Yes, your honor.”McGregor was released on $50,000 bond — pocket change for a fighter who was guaranteed $30 million last year in his ballyhooed boxing match against Floyd Mayweather Jr. McGregor is due back in court June 14.Video footage appeared to show the promotion’s most bankable star throwing a hand truck at a bus full of fighters on Thursday after a news conference for UFC 223 at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center.McGregor was trying to get at UFC 223 main event fighter Khabib Nurmagomedov because the Russian had been involved in a hotel altercation with fellow fighter Artem Lobov. McGregor tried to stick up for Lobov, a close friend, and apparently loaded a private jet with his best buds and flew to New York to rumble.ADVERTISEMENT The brashness was muted as cameras snapped Friday when he was brought out of a New York City police station in handcuffs.White said earlier this week in New York that McGregor would fight again for UFC this year. McGregor’s actions now put future fights in doubt. He could have had his pick of rich fights. A rematch against Mayweather inside the cage? A third fight against Nate Diaz? It all seemed possible — and it now seems a long way off.UFC has not immediately issued discipline against its biggest box office attraction.McGregor once held the 145 and 155-pound championships at the same time and boldly stated he wanted an ownership stake in UFC.But the trash-talking, egocentric has been out of the fight game except for his money fight with Mayweather that made him wealthy enough to never need to step inside the cage again.The Mayweather bout last August was his last professional fight and McGregor and his girlfriend also had a son last year.But not even fatherhood could mellow the irate Irishman.He was ordered to away from five people injured in the attack.McGregor’s lawyer, Jim Walden, said there was no risk that McGregor would try to avoid coming back to court: “He’s the most visible face on the planet.”It’s one usually plastered on a UFC poster. UFC President Dana White said Friday he spoke to McGregor via text and the brawler said the confrontation “had to be done.”“It was probably the worst conversation we ever had,” White told FS1’s “First Things First” on Friday. “We talked yesterday before he turned himself in.“It’s not that I don’t think he understood what happened. He justified it. It was justified to him.”White said the 29-year-old McGregor said he was sorry about the fighters who were injured, but, “this had to be done.”Michael Chiesa and Ray Borg were both pulled from the fight because of injuries suffered on the bus from McGregor’s shenanigans.Video showed McGregor with a group of people causing chaos Thursday as they took an elevator to the loading dock at Barclays Center. He can be seen tossing trash cans and being prevented from throwing a barricade at a bus during his unannounced appearance in New York.“Guys will say things, push, shove, grab each other. These things have happened,” White said. “People have slapped each other. We can deal with all of that stuff. But when you bring in twenty hoodlums that flew in from Ireland to basically do this at our event, there’s nothing like this that has ever happened.”Lobov was pulled from Saturday’s card for his involvement in the ugly act. McGregor’s friend and co-defendant Cian Cowley was released on $25,000 bond and also is due in court in June.McGregor hasn’t fought for UFC since November 2016 and was stripped this week by White of the 155-pound championship he had never defended.McGregor profanely responded on Twitter and wrote, “You’ll strip me of nothing.” Judy Ann’s 1st project for 2020 is giving her a ‘stomachache’ What McGregor wanted, McGregor got — in cash, championships, and living his best luxe life.After one more decisive victory in New York, McGregor scaled the UFC octagon and draped two championship belts over his shoulder while a sold-out crowd roared in approval.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkSPORTSTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crownIn the underbelly of a New York arena 17 months later, McGregor went wild, using a dolly, chairs and guard rails as weapons, not his fists.

THE POWER OF COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT/OWNERSHIP – (PART FIVE): SUSTAINING COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT

first_imgIn this fifth and final article of the series centered on the necessity and strength of community engagement the focus is on how to sustain community engagement. It is one thing to begin many a good thing and another to sustain it. Decision makers in Liberia, past and present, are known for initiating good programs and policy implementation such as only three persons in the back of a taxi, removing marketers from selling by road sides (sometime literally on the roads), and coming up with new transport fares and threats to enforce them but a few weeks later everything goes back to square one! How then may the essential policy of community engagement and ownership so helpfully tried and proven to be key to the defeat of the Ebola Virus Disease be sustained and promoted throughout the length and breath of this country? Let us explore in brief below. The fourth article on the indispensable roles of influential and opinion leaders of communities observed the following points:This kind of communication should bring on board everyone in the community. The drawing in of everyone is best done when the influential and opinion leaders of the community catch the vision. They in turn can spread and involve those they influence. Therefore chiefs, zoes, pastors, imams, teachers, leaders of the women, men, and youth, and heads of motorcyclists and wheelbarrow boys associations are to be involved in formulating the vision of whatever the community wants to do and in motivating everyone to come on board.The chiefs and zoes are the leaders of the people and what they say and do carries a lot of weight. Community members are likely to listen to them more than outsiders. Likewise religious leaders (pastors and imams) wield a lot of influence. Through their preaching, teaching and other forms of ministry (service) they engage members of the community at different levels on daily or at least biweekly basis (most likely on Sundays, Wednesdays, and Fridays). Their members believe them and often do what they say and do.Teachers too influence what their students think and do. The kids listen and trust them more than their parents and others. Motorcyclists, wheelbarrow boys and leaders of the women, men and youths also can influence those who make use of their services. They all are to catch and drive community vision, projects and help solve problems and challenges that inevitably come from time to time. They all must play their parts if the community is to attend to its problems and make progress. They ought to help the community generate its own solutions and drive development. The importance of each one of these opinion leaders must be recognized and tapped into if communities are to see themselves as responsible for their own problems and coming up with visions for its own betterment.Community engagement is best sustained when it is practiced often and on a regular basis. It must not be a one off undertaking like fighting and defeating Ebola out of Liberia but must be practiced in attending to the numerous challenges that will inevitably come to every community and engaging seriously to overcome them, and in realizing the dreams and aspirations of communities. There is some truth to the common saying, “Practice makes perfect”. Community ownership must become second nature to communities through constant, all inclusive and continuous practice.Community engagement should be used now in helping communities to get their children vaccinated against measles, polio, and worms. The training of so many community actors (chiefs, teachers, pastors, imams, leaders of youths, women and men) during the Ebola crisis should now be employed to attend to common communal problems.Many Liberians and foreign observers alike know that Liberia needs a change in mind and attitude if it is to progress and be what it was meant to be, a beckon hope to the rest of Africa. The problems of lack of patriotism, entrepreneurial spirit, negativity towards self and everything Liberian, and repeating terrible mistakes of the past including the most recent of civil war and the Ebola crisis require a fundamental mental and attitudinal change. And such a change can best be achieved through community ownership. When community leaders and opinion leaders catch the vision and engage the communities then the needed change can come about quicker and easier than when it comes from central government down. Community ownership is sustained when it is used as often as possible in different situations of community and national needs and in improving the lot of the community and the nation.      Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Legislature to Establish Judicial Oversight C’tte?

first_imgChief Justice Francis Saye Korkpor (left): “What surprises me is that the call is being made from an unlikely source,” the Legislature, headed by Speaker Bhofal Chambers (Right) Chief Justice: “it assails doctrine of separation of powers”It appears that if careful consideration is not taken there could likely be a scramble between the Legislature and the Judiciary over a plan by lawmakers to establish a judiciary oversight committee that could slip the country into a constitutional crisis.The function and mandate of that committee were not disclosed yesterday during the opening of the October 2018 Term of the Supreme Court.But, during Chief Justice Francis Korkpor’s opening address, which was attended by President George Weah, Senate Pro-Tempore Albert T. Chie and Speaker Bhofal Chambers, he informed his audience that also included members of the Liberia National Bar Association (LNBA), that, “We have heard a call or proposal for the establishment of a judiciary oversight committee within the legislature.”It is not clear whether the lawmakers’ action resulted from the ongoing wrangling between the two Branches of Government over the impeachment of Associate Justice Kabineh Ja’neh by majority members of the Lower House.“What surprises me is that the call is being made from an unlikely source. We shall say more on this at the appropriate time, not in the too distant future,” Korkpor said. “But, suffice it to say for now that such a call does only undermine the independence of the judiciary, and it also directly assails the doctrine of separation of powers enshrined in our organic law, the Constitution.“Let me reiterate,” Korkpor emphasized, “that we have and will continue to work so that the Supreme Court will remain a neutral, non-aligned and non-political Branch of the Government, a sanctuary to which the injured can see justice. We will continue to protect the liberty and freedom of all. It should be clear by now, judging from our many positions and opinions, that the court favors no particular person or institution, including the government.”He continued, “If the government is in the right we will not hesitate to say so, but if the reverse is also true, we will remain only on the side of the law.”Therefore, Korkpor assured party litigants that, “Those who have matters before this court should harbor no fear or apprehension of the expected outcome of their cases; your fate will be decided solely on the face of the law applicable.”In response, Cllr. Frank Musa Dean, Minister of Justice and Attorney General of the Republic of Liberia, reminded his colleagues that the faith of the common man in our judicial system is shaky, to say the least.Addressing himself to the judicial Oversight Committee, Minister Dean said, “While a call or proposal for the establishment of a ‘judicial oversight committee’ within the legislature will undermine the doctrine of the separation of powers enshrined in the Constitution, the judiciary must embark on self-cleansing.”According to Dean, justice actors must work assiduously at self-policing and self-cleansing to restore the respect, faith, and confidence of the common people in the judiciary and the rule of law.“Our courts’ judgments and actions must be grounded in and have the support of the law; and must be seen as fair, judicious and impartial,” Dean noted. “Our courts’ judgments must carry the moral authority required to demand compliance.”Reflecting on the role of the Judiciary in the country’s constitutional democracy, Minister Dean quoted the words of the late Chief Justice James A.A. Pierre, in a case that involved C. Abayomi Cassell, Counsellor-at-Law, 14 LLR 391 (1960): “The Judiciary is the anchor which holds and stabilizes a government in a balance; without it, vested interest might suffer, sacred rights might be violated, constituted authority might be challenged and, in fact, administrative chaos could result.”On the attendance of high profile government officials, Dean said, “It signals the unity, cordial working relationship, and the coordination that the Constitution contemplates among the Branches of Government. The doctrine of separation of powers does not imply antagonism.”Article 3 of the 1986 Constitution says: “Liberia is a unitary sovereign state divided into counties for administrative purposes. The form of government is Republican with three separate coordinate branches: the Legislature, the Executive and Judiciary. Consistent with the principles of separation of powers and checks and balances, no person holding office in one of these branches shall hold office in or exercise any of the powers assigned to either of the other two branches except as otherwise provided in this Constitution; and no person holding office in one of the said branches shall serve on any autonomous public agency.”Also Article 34 provides that“The Legislature shall have the power:(a) to create new counties and other political sub-division, and readjust existing county boundaries;(b) to provide for the security of the Republic;(c) Armed Forces of the Republic, and to make appropriations therefor provided that no appropriation of money for that use shall be for a longer term than on year; and to make rules for the governance of the Armed Forces of the Republic;(d) to levy taxes, duties, imports, exercise and other revenues, to borrow money, issue currency, mint coins, and to make appropriations for the fiscal governance of the Republic, subject to the following qualifications:(i) all revenue bills, whether subsidies, charges, imports, duties or taxes, and other financial bills, shall originate in the House of Representatives, but the Senate may propose or concur with amendments as on other bills. No other financial charge shall be established, fixed, laid or levied on any individual, community or locality under any pretext whatsoever except by the expressed consent of the individual, community or locality. In all such cases, a true and correct account of funds collected shall be made to the community or locality;(ii) no monies shall be drawn from the treasure except in consequence of appropriations made by legislative enactment and upon warrant of the President; and no coin shall be minted or national currency issued except by the expressed authority of the Legislature. An annual statement and account of the expenditure of all public monies shall be submitted by the office of the President to the Legislature and published once a year;(iii) no loans shall be raised by the Government on behalf of the Republic or guarantees given for any public institutions or authority otherwise than by or under the authority of a legislative enactment;(e) to constitute courts inferior to the Supreme Court, including circuit courts, claims courts and such courts with prescribed jurisdictional powers as may be deemed necessary for the proper administration of justice throughout the Republic;(f) to approve treaties, conventions and such other international agreements negotiated or signed on behalf of the Republic;(g) to regulate trade and commence between Liberia and other nations;(h) to establish laws for citizenship, naturalization and residence;(i)   to enact the election laws;(j) to establish various categories of criminal offenses and provide for the punishment thereof;(k) to enact laws providing pension scheme for various categories of government officials and employees in accordance with age and tenure of service; and(l) to make other laws which shall be necessary and proper for carrying into execution the foregoing powers, and all other powers vested by this Constitution in the Government of the Republic, or in any department or officer thereof.Article 65 also states that “The Judicial Power of the Republic shall be vested in a Supreme Court and such subordinate courts as the legislature may from time to time establish. The courts shall apply both statutory and customary laws in accordance with the standards enacted by the Legislature. Judgments of the Supreme Court shall be final and binding and shall not be subject to appeal or review by any other branch of Government. Nothing in this Article shall prohibit administrative consideration of the justiciable matter prior to review by a court of competent jurisdiction.”Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Marseille come from behind to stun Monaco

first_img0Shares0000Valere Germain’s late header gave Marseille victory in the south coast derby © AFP / Valery HACHEPARIS, France, Sep 3 – Marseille came from behind to beat southern rivals Monaco 3-2 on Sunday thanks to a 90th minute winner from Valere Germain.Konstantinos Mitroglou kissed Dimitri Payet’s right boot after his superb cross allowed the Greek to give Marseille the advantage right on half-time at the Stade Louis II. Youri Tielemans hit back for Monaco on 48 minutes before World Cup winner Adil Rami, watched by US actress girlfriend Pamela Anderson, failed to clear properly and Falcao gobbled up the loose ball to smash a shot into the roof of the net and put the home side ahead.But Florent Thauvin equalled things up from a Hiroki Sakai pass before Germain’s header sneaked in at the near post to give Marseille a memorable win.Rami joked that his error “had made a match of it, all on my own”.“I am going to get down to work, I need to show a better side of myself,” he said.With seven points from four games, Marseille trail leaders Paris Saint Germain, who beat Nimes 4-2 on Saturday, by five points.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Switzerland World Cup team guide – fixtures, kits, key player, probable line-up

first_img 4 ONE TO WATCHBreel Embolo made his international debut at just 18, and three years on is Switzerland’s biggest young prospect for the future. Schalke paid almost £20m for the striker in 2016, and he made 21 Bundesliga appearances this season, scoring three times.Born in Cameroon, Embolo moved to Switzerland aged six and chose to represent them in international football, making his tournament debut at Euro 2016. Able to fill in in a midfield role as well as up front, Embolo’s style of play has been compared to Mario Balotelli for his ability to terrorise defences.Likely to start on the bench behind favoured options Haris Seferovic and Josip Drmic, Embolo will seek to make his mark as a substitute, offering a more effective aerial option than the other strikers in the squad.FIXTURESSunday, June 17: BRAZIL v Switzerland (Rostov Arena, Rostov-on-Don): kick-off 19:00Friday, June 22: SERBIA v Switzerland (Kaliningrad Stadium, Kaliningrad): kick-off 19:00Wednesday, June 27: Switzerland v COSTA RICA (Nizhny Novgorod Stadium, Nizhny Novgorod): kick-off 19:00KITS RECORD IN QUALIFYINGSwitzerland blitzed their way through their first nine qualifying games, winning them all and seemingly cruising to Russia. Despite this, a final day defeat at the hands of Portugal saw them finish runners-up and forced to take the play-off route. A controversial penalty, given for handball against Northern Ireland’s Corry Evans, was enough to win the first leg in Belfast before a 0-0 draw at home confirmed their place.TOURNAMENT PREPARATIONPetkovic’s side face Spain in Villarreal on June 3 before hosting Japan five days later in Lugano.

Under his guidance Switzerland surged to sixth in the world rankings, their highest position since 1993.His previous role as manager of Lazio saw him lift the Italian Cup in 2013, defeating fierce rivals Roma in the final. He was sacked in controversial circumstances the following January, having already agreed to take the Switzerland job after the 2014 World Cup.CAPTAINStephan Lichtsteiner heads to Russia with a wealth of experience under his belt. The 34-year-old, who recently joined Arsenal, can boast 98 international caps, seven Serie A titles and nine domestic cups in his 17-year career.A title-winner in every season he spent with former club Juventus, Lichtsteiner can play all along the right-hand side, be it as a full-back, wing-back or midfielder, able to adapt to the four-at-the-back system Switzerland play as well as the three-man defence employed by the Italian club.Switzerland captain since just before Euro 2016 began, his cap total puts him fourth all-time for Switzerland, and despite his age and defensive duties he scored three times in qualifying for this summer’s tournament.KEY PLAYERHailed as the brightest star in Swiss football when with Basel, Xherdan Shaqiri remains his country’s most threatening player. Likely to seek a move away from relegated Stoke City this summer, the World Cup is the perfect shop window for the winger to show why he has the likes of Bayern Munich and Inter Milan on his CV.Shaqiri found the net 15 times in 92 games over three years at Stoke, who paid a then-club-record £12m to sign him from Italy. A mercurial player, Shaqiri is no stranger to a wonder strike, and his thunderous overhead kick against Poland at Euro 2016 was voted goal of the tournament.Since making his international debut in 2010, the 26-year-old has made 68 appearances for his country, scoring 20 times. When motivated and in form, his skill and devastating left foot should worry any defence.last_img read more
