Region 10 officials press for foreign, sign languages in schools

first_imgOfficials in Region 10 (Upper Demerara-Berbice) are pressing for foreign languages, including Spanish and Portuguese, to be taught at more schools around the region, after it was highlighted that only a few schools benefit, given the lack of qualified personnel to take up the responsibility.Regional Chairman Renis Morian in a quest to improve the situation has asked that the Region 10 Department of Education assist in facilitating the hiring of trained personnel. Morian asked about the number of foreign languages presently being taught in schools acrossRegional Chairman Renis Morianthe region and the availability and accessibility of qualified people to teach. He alluded that Portuguese and Spanish are two important languages which should be learned by students in order to break the language barrier.“We find ourselves at a disadvantage when it comes to training and doing business since we can’t communicate,” the Regional Chairman said.Meanwhile, Regional Education Officer Marcia Paddy Andrews noted that qualified persons can be employed to teach the subjects on a part-time basis, a move which the Department of Education is willing to assist with. Chairman of the region’s Education Committee Denise Belgrave also suggested that sign language be taught inside regular classrooms throughout the region, noting that it will be a positive step in assisting students with special needs.last_img read more

Ronaldo, Portugal lock down World Cup spot

first_img0Shares0000Ronaldo failed to add to his 79 international goals in the World Cup qualifier but he is set to compete at another finals. PHOTO/DMLISBON, Portugal, Oct 11 – Cristiano Ronaldo’s Portugal defeated Switzerland 2-0 in Lisbon on Tuesday to earn a place at the 2018 World Cup and consign their opponents to next month’s play-offs.An own goal from Johan Djourou handed Portugal the lead on 41 minutes and Andre Silva netted a second before the hour as the hosts finished top of Group B ahead of Switzerland on goal difference. Switzerland, who beat Portugal 2-0 at home last year, had won all nine previous qualifiers but must overcome a two-legged play-off in November to earn a fourth straight World Cup appearance.Ronaldo, who was injured for the opening qualifying defeat in Basel, returned to the Portugal line-up after coming off the bench to notch the opening goal in a lacklustre 2-0 win in Andorra on Saturday.Switzerland were attempting to join defending champions Germany — and Spain ahead of the 2010 finals — as the only nations to complete a European World Cup qualifying campaign with a perfect record.But AC Milan striker Andre Silva forced Yann Sommer into a smart early save from his deflected shot, with the Swiss goalkeeper then forced to make a terrific stop to tip over Bernardo Silva’s venomous effort.A clumsy challenge in the area on Switzerland forward Haris Seferovic by Benfica team-mate Eliseu went unpunished as the visitors made a rare foray deep into the Portuguese half.US pop star Madonna was among the crowd at the Estadio da Luz which erupted when Djourou inadvertently bundled a dangerous cross from Eliseu beyond Sommer four minutes before the break under heavy pressure from Joao Mario.Xherdan Shaqiri tried to deceive Portugal keeper Rui Patricio with an ambitious free-kick early in the second period, but Portugal doubled their advantage with a brilliant team goal on 57 minutes.Manchester City midfielder Bernardo Silva exchanged passes with former Monaco team-mate Joao Moutinho, threading through the return pass for an unmarked Andre Silva to steer in at the far post.Switzerland go into the play-offs as the best of the eight runners-up to advance, with Slovakia missing out as the worst of the nine second-placed sides.Vladimir Petkovic’s team will be among the seeded countries for the play-off draw on October 17 and could face Sweden, Northern Ireland, Republic of Ireland or Greece for a place at Russia 2018.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

France v Croatia: 3 key World Cup final battles

first_img0Shares0000Creative forces: Croatia’s Luka Modric (right) and Antoine Griezmann of France could hold the key to the World Cup final © AFP / Pierre-Philippe MARCOU, Gabriel BOUYSMOSCOW, Russian Federation, Jul 14 – France are favourites to win the World Cup for a second time in Moscow on Sunday when they take on a Croatia side forced to go through three periods of extra-time to make their first ever final.By contrast, Didier Deschamps’s side have seen off Argentina, Uruguay and Belgium, all in 90 minutes, and enjoyed a day’s extra rest to prepare after their semi-final on Tuesday as they look to make amends for defeat in the Euro 2016 final to Portugal. As the smallest country to reach a World Cup final for 68 years, Croatia cannot call on the same resources as the French but have shown incredible mental strength to battle back from falling behind in each of their three knockout games.AFP Sport looks at three key battles that could decide who are crowned champions of the world:Luka Modric v Paul PogbaPaul Pogba has done his share of defending to help France to the World Cup final © AFP / Adrian DENNISModric has been widely hailed as the world’s best midfielder for his performances in Russia and has emerged as a Ballon d’Or contender after also winning his fourth Champions League in five years at Real Madrid.That is a status Pogba aspires to, but the one-time world’s most expensive player has sacrificed some of his creative talents for the good of the team in Russia.Manchester United’s Pogba has formed a formidable partnership with N’Golo Kante at the heart of the French midfield that has helped snuff out the threat of Lionel Messi, Kevin De Bruyne and Eden Hazard.Should Pogba and Kante also prevent Modric from taking control of the midfield as he did despite tired legs in the second half of Croatia’s semi-final against England, it will take France a long way towards a first World Cup in 20 years.Mario Mandzukic v Raphael VaraneMario Mandzukic scored Croatia’s semi-final winner against England © AFP / Yuri CORTEZMandzukic often saves his best for the big occasion, most recently shrugging off a knee injury to strike the winner against England in the semi-final.The Juventus forward also has a great record when facing Varane. Mandzukic scored a stunning overhead kick in the 2017 Champions League final, netted twice as the Italians beat Real Madrid 3-1 at the Santiago Bernabeu in April and grabbed the winner for Atletico Madrid in the 2014 Spanish Super Cup.Mandzukic will be used as a focal point to try and bring Modric, Ivan Rakitic and Ivan Perisic into the game, but Varane has arguably been the best centre-back at the World Cup and has the speed, height and power to nullify Croatia’s biggest goal threat.Marcelo Brozovic v Antoine GriezmannDifference maker: Antoine Griezmann has scored three goals and set up two more in Russia © AFP / FRANCK FIFERecalled by Zlatko Dalic for the semi-final, Inter Milan midfielder Brozovic freed up Modric and Rakitic from defensive duties at the base of the midfield and always provided an out ball for his centre-backs as Croatia dominated possession.Griezmann has not shone as brightly as at Euro 2016, when he won the Golden Boot. His three goals have come from two penalties and a goalkeeping mistake by Uruguay’s Fernando Muslera.However, the Atletico Madrid star has improved as the tournament has progressed and has been France’s main playmaker, providing the assists for Varane’s and Samuel Umtiti’s goals in the quarter-finals and semi-finals.Griezmann’s energy and intelligence will see him find space to feed Giroud and Kylian Mbappe if Croatia’s energy levels run low. It’ll be Brozovic’s job to make sure he does not.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Latest elephant plan not peanuts

first_img The estimated cost: $38.7 million, to be financed through $25 million in pre-approved Proposition A and CC bond funds; $11 million borrowed from the city’s Municipal Improvement Corp.; $1 million from city coffers; and $2 million in private donations. “Sounds expensive,” said Jon Coupal, president of the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association. “Notwithstanding the political symbolism, Republicans should not even stand for this. People can drive 100 miles to San Diego Wild Animal Park.” Villaraigosa, who had not read the proposal, reiterated Friday afternoon his general opposition to keeping elephants in zoos. “My interest is in ensuring our elephants are healthy and safe and I believe they are safer when they are not in zoos,” Villaraigosa said. “I need to digest this proposal.” The mayor, who has pledged to eliminate the city’s nearly $300 million budget deficit within five years, said he appreciates that the majority of the elephant proposal comes from bonds and private sources. Critics were quick to denounce the size of an exhibit they say is too small for elephants used to more space in the wild. “It wouldn’t be enough,” said Assemblyman Lloyd Levine, D-Van Nuys, who introduced a bill last month to require zoos to maintain at least five acres for up to three elephants. “Elephants need more space than that.” “Its cruel to the elephants – that exhibit will take four to six years to build,” added Melya Kaplan, executive director for Voice for the Animals, an animal-welfare group. “It is basically fiscally irresponsible for the city to spend this kind of money for a substandard exhibit.” Dana Bartholomew, (818) 713-3730 dana.bartholomew@dailynews.com160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

The study, released in December by the City Administrative Office, recommended that the zoo enlarge the elephant quarters from a half-acre to three acres. In a letter sent Friday to the mayor, Los Angeles Zoo General Manager John Lewis outlined plans for an elephant exhibit that would be among the largest of any urban zoo in the nation. The proposed exhibit would create a grassland with water holes, waterfalls and natural surfaces for walking and standing, as well as ultrasound equipment for elephant care. “This exhibit will further solidify the Los Angeles Zoo and Botanical Gardens as one of the city’s leading cultural institutions,” Lewis wrote. Despite a city budget shortfall of $300 million, the Los Angeles Zoo proposed Friday building a 3.5-acre exhibit, at a cost of nearly $40 million, to house its three elephants. While revised plans for a three-acre exhibit drew high praise from City Councilman Tom LaBonge and other city officials, critics called it a pachyderm-size bungle during a severe budget crunch. And animal-welfare activists, who’d won a campaign promise from Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa to close the zoo’s elephant digs, vowed to continue their campaign to have the animals sent to a sanctuary. “This is wonderful for Los Angeles and for children young and old to have the best pachyderm exhibit in the country,” said LaBonge, whose district includes the zoo. “We’re going to come up with the money, because the children of Los Angeles deserve it.” last_img read more

Morata and Matic getting closer, but have Milan helped with another transfer?

first_img 10 10 The window might not have opened yet but we are well into the transfer season with a number of deals already being completed.This summer represents an important period for Manchester United as they look to improve their squad to challenge at the top end of the Premier League as well as coping with Champions League demands.The arrival of Swedish defender Victor Lindelof from Benfica has already been confirmed but a number of other players are likely to follow him through the door.In this round-up talkSPORT have gone through the Red Devils’ top transfer targets to see what the current situation is.Scroll through the gallery above to take a look at the latest United transfer stories. Jordi Alba (Barcelona) – Although he is satisfied with Luke Shaw’s progression, Mourinho could well be on the lookout for a new left-back. Apparently the United manager has targeted Barcelona man Alba as his preferred option but a deal looks difficult to complete. Though Alba faces competition at Barcelona in the form of Lucas Digne the ex-Valencia man is believed to want to stay and fight for his place. Alvaro Morata (Real Madrid) – The striker has reportedly left his Ibiza honeymoon to hold discussions with his club Real Madrid about a move to United. The 24-year-old has been heavily linked with a move to join Jose Mourinho, who managed him at Real, and it is thought his sudden departure from Ibiza means a transfer should be completed in the next 48 hours. Morata returned to Real Madrid last summer after spending two seasons with Italian giants Juventus but had to play second fiddle to first choice Karim Benzema. If he is to stake a claim as his country’s number one striker at the 2018 World Cup a move away might be what’s required. Nemanja Matic (Chelsea) – The Serbian midfielder’s move from Chelsea to Old Trafford looks like it will be completed very soon. United will most likely fork out £35million to reunite Matic with Mourinho as the Blues are on the verge of signing Monaco’s Tiemoue Bakayoko. Matic has won two titles at Chelsea, since he was bought back from Benfica for £22million in 2014, but was also one of the worst performers as the Blues suffered a slump in the season that saw Mourinho sacked. 10 Gianluigi Donnarumma (AC Milan) – After rejecting a new contract at AC Milan it has been a funny old time for the young goalkeeper. Italy are now out of the Under-21 European Championship but, on the weekend, Donnarumma’s agent Mino Raiola activated his twitter account for the first time in a year to hit back at the goalkeeper’s ‘haters’. On Sunday night the 18-year-old posted on Instagram saying he intended to stay at San Siro but, shortly afterwards, it was deleted and the player claimed he had been hacked. Should David de Gea leave Old Trafford the young Italian would be a prime contender to replace him as number one. This strange story is sure to develop further in the coming weeks. 10 Cristiano Ronaldo (Real Madrid) – Understandably, once it was reported that Ronaldo wanted to leave Madrid, United became automatic favourites to sign the 32-year-old courtesy of his previous ties with the club. However, the most recent news suggests Ronaldo will not be leaving the Bernabeu after Real President Florentino Perez admitted that while the player was ‘angry’ he expected him to stay put. Ivan Perisic (Inter Milan) – Inter are said to have offered the 28-year-old a pay rise to ward off any interest from United. However, the Croatian winger is thought to be sold on the idea of joining up with Mourinho and moving to Old Trafford. United have reportedly had a £35million bid for Perisic rejected by the Italian club who are supposedly want around £44million. This looks like another deal that should be completed relatively soon. 10 10 10 10 Fabinho (Monaco) – Even though the deal for Nemanja Matic looks to be almost completed it is believed United would still pursue Monaco-man Fabinho. The defensive midfielder, who can also play at right-back, is much admired and the club hierarchy would be very keen on getting a deal done if it was possible. While this transfer looks like it could happen Fabinho will only depart for a hefty price tag. James Rodriguez (Real Madrid) – Another Real Madrid man in demand is Rodriguez who has fallen down the pecking order under Zinedine Zidane. The Colombian was a big money signing after his star performances at the 2014 World Cup but he hasn’t been able to deliver consistently for Los Blancos. Reports suggest that AC Milan have pulled out of the race to sign the attacking midfielder, which could pave the way for United to swoop along with Premier League rivals Chelsea. Rodriguez still possesses talent and playing regular football again would be a hugely attractive proposition for the Colombia international. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (Borussia Dortmund) – The Bundesliga hotshot looks set to leave Borussia Dortmund this summer after leading the scoring charts in Germany. Manchester United were thought to be interested in the Gabon international at the start of June, as were rivals Liverpool, but if recent reports are to be believed Aubameyang looks set to complete a whopping £71million move to China. Tianjin Quanjian, managed by Italian defensive legend Fabio Cannavaro, look to be the club that have reached an agreement with the prolific front man. Don’t expect to see Aubameyang playing for the Red Devils any time soon. Saul Niguez (Atletico Madrid) – The undoubted star of the Under-21 Euros is a wanted man – to no one’s surprise. Both Barcelona and Manchester United are said to be interested in the 22-year-old Atletico Madrid man but Saul has categorically said he isn’t going anywhere. With Atletico about to be hit by their transfer ban the young starlet doesn’t want to leave the club in the lurch by leaving. This might be a deal for the future but not in this upcoming window. 10 10last_img read more
