MLS pioneer Butler to be honoured by Earthquakes

first_imgNational Under-20 coach and former Reggae Boy, Altimont ‘Freddie’ Butler will tomorrow be honoured by the San Jose Earthquakes as one of the Major League Soccer (MLS) franchise’s original roster members when the league kicked off 20 years ago. Butler, the first Jamaican to play in the MLS, was drafted by the San Jose Clash (later renamed Earthquakes) in February 1996 in the second round (eighteenth overall) of 250 players in the league’s Inaugural Player Draft. He was also on the team’s roster for the first ever MLS game to be played which was against DC United. Tomorrow the San Jose Earthquakes will hold a 20th Anniversary Celebration when D.C. United visits to Avaya Stadium in a recreation of MLS’ inaugural match in San Jose on April 6, 1996, just four days shy of the exact day 20 years ago. As part of the affair all the former San Jose Clash players, staff and MLS representatives that made the inaugural season possible will be honoured at half-time. “It is always a great feeling to be part of history especially being the first Jamaican to be drafted for and to play in the MLS. Being recognised as one of the pioneers is a special feeling,” said Butler who departed the island yesterday for California. Among the former players who will be honoured alongside Butler are current Chelsea technical director and former Nigeria international Michael Emenalo, US Internationals Eric Wynalda, Eddie Lewis, Paul Bravo and John Doyle. Others include Mexican international Eduardo Missael Espinoza, Jorge Rodas (Guatemala) and  Ben Iroha (Nigeria). Having been there at the start Butler now looks on with pride. “It has grown a lot. Right now it is a real big league compared to what it was then and all the signs show that it will grow even more. What I am most proud about is that it has opened the doors for a lot of Jamaicans and the performance of most of them means that we can become a major supplier of talent for the League,” said Butler, who was drafted out of the University of Southern New Hampshire. Even with that success though, the Port Royal native who distinguished himself as a schoolboy at Dunoon Technical High and at Harbour View before venturing overseas, said there is still more for Jamaicans to do in the MLS. “We have to change our outlook, training attitudes and approach. We are too laid back and that is one of the reasons for the most part why some of us do not stay too long there. Our thinking has to get to the level where we treat the sport as a job. We have to prepare our youngsters to know that this (football) is a job just like those you get dressed up in your suits for,” the man, who shares coaching responsibility for the country under-20 Boyz with his former Reggae Boy teammate Ricardo Gardner, said.last_img read more

Guyana remains exposed to external shocks from prices, trade blockades – IMF

first_img…also warns of effects of climate changeThe International Monetary Fund (IMF) has warned that Guyana’s economy remains exposed to the effects of volatile commodity prices, economic slowdowns in the international market, and protectionist measures against Guyana’s exports.This was explained by the Fund in a recent report on Guyana’s economy, and it comes even as Guyana has already had to contend with protectionist measures from various countries which have blocked and even returned certain shipments of goods from local shores.Recent flooding in Mahaica has seen large-scale destruction of crops“Guyana remains subject to commodity price shocks, heightened protectionist trends, and slowdown in international trade,” the report says. However, the IMF noted that based on the Government’s utterances, work is being done to build a more diversified economy.It also noted the importance of expanding opportunities and competitiveness for businesses to grow in the local economy, as well as supporting measures for an economy that has ‘green’ initiatives at its core.The report acknowledges that export figures can be distorted by the large proportion of commodity exports Guyana ships, and the effects of shocks in certain economic sectors, like rice and sugar. Here, it used the example of the suspension of the PetroCaribe deal with Venezuela and the woes of the Guyana Sugar Corporation (GUYSUCO).ProtectionismOf recent, Guyana has had to contend with protectionist measures from the United States, United Kingdom and Trinidad. In the case of the US, that country imposed a ban on the exportation of catfish from Guyana. In explaining why the ban was imposed, Veterinary Public Health Unit Director Dr Ozaye Dodson had said that Guyana fell short of the US standards in three areas. In the first place, there were issues regarding the presence of inspectors.There were also issues with insufficient documentation to verify the steps being taken in the sanitation and Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) process.There was also insufficient documentation specifying how the industry manages adulterated catfish products.When it comes to the UK, their Environment Agency imposed restrictions on greenheart importation since 2015. At the time, it was claimed that proof of sustainable sourcing of the forest product was inadequate, and this has since resulted in a drastic decrease in export of the product to the UK.In December 2016, the EA relaxed the restrictions on greenheart, but only began to accept Category A FSC 100 per cent greenheart from Iwokrama. Guyana has, however, been involved in talks under the Guyana-European Voluntary Partnership Agreement to lessen the restrictions.In 2019, Jamaican authorities also rejected some 70 metric tonnes of white rice. It was reported that after samples of the rice shipment were sent to the division’s microbiology lab for testing, the results from the tests demonstrated that the rice contained microbial levels which are beyond the accepted limits, thus making it unfit for human consumption.This seizure was the first for the year, but an epidemic of poor quality rice exiting Guyana was seen in the recent months when Panama rejected some 20 containers of rice from Guyana back in September 2018.Rice is a major contributor to the Agriculture Gross Domestic Product (GDP) of Guyana. Guyana is presently a major paddy producer and one of the leading exporters of rice in the region.Climate changeThe IMF had also warned in its report that Guyana was at risk of the effects of climate change, something that has become obvious over the past few weeks with overtopping along the coast bringing with it flooding of communities.“With its coast being below sea level, Guyana remains highly vulnerable to climate change and the consequent trend in sea level rise,” the IMF said in its report.Flooding in Mahaica this month saw more than 300 acres of rice being destroyed and hundreds of acres more being put under threat of destruction by saltwater. In addition, livestock was destroyed and properties sustained damages.Apart from the destruction of the rice, it has been reported that the flooded land is no longer suitable for rice production, since the soil composition has become too salty.Junior Minister of Public Infrastructure, Jaipaul Sharma, has himself ascribed the overtopping to the effects of global warming.last_img read more

Loaded gun found at middle school

first_imgThe weapon, a small automatic that wasn’t fully loaded, was in a bag of some sort and placed in a planter, said Lt. Jeff Cavanaugh of the sheriff’s Pico Rivera Station.“We were called by the school. There was a rumor floating around that somebody at school had a firearm,” he said. “Somehow they found out there was a gun on campus.”He said a school employee saw several individuals hanging around an area of the school. They began to disperse but were stopped.He said these kids were in the school office when deputies arrived. Deputies searched this area and found the gun.“We are very proud that a courageous student came forward and reported this incident. We are committed to a safe learning environment for all of our students and will not tolerate any behavior that puts that in jeopardy,” said principal Monica Sena.A letter will be sent home today, according to district spokeswoman Anne Turner.School officials also said that the district is moving forward with an expulsion hearing and the boy won’t return to Edwards Middle School.Lisa Mata-Uribe, 40, who has an eighth-grade son at Edwards Middle School called the district Thursday to ask what was going on with the incident because her son had called her to say there was a kid with a gun on campus.She said she was told by Franco that there will be no additional security on campus today because it’s being treated as an isolated incident.“It’s a good thing I have a good relationship with my son, and that he got home and called me immediately about this,” Mata-Uribe said. “But it may not be like that for all Edwards parents, and that’s what I’m most concerned about.”“I’m not happy, and I’m not comfortable, but unfortunately I guess he’s going to have to go to school tomorrow,” she added.“There are kids who aren’t going to go to school tomorrow and this is the excuse they’re going to give.”She said she knows it’s short notice, but thinks something should have gone out Thursday to the parents.ruby.gonzales@sgvn.com(562) 698-0955, Ext. 3026160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Guardiola urges Man City to focus solely on lowly Newport

first_imgAs City chase glory on four fronts, it would be easy to class this as a straightforward assignment with tougher tests lying in wait.But City manager Guardiola is not prepared to do that, Newport’s recent FA Cup pedigree ensuring he is taking nothing for granted.The small, atmospheric Rodney Parade is a throwback of a ground with two stands open to the elements and plenty of terracing, while the pitch has to cope with one football team, two rugby union sides and the rain of South Wales.While the team may languish in League Two, Michael Flynn’s side have beaten Premier League Leicester and Middlesbrough of the Championship to earn this lucrative tie with reigning English champions City.So there are enough warning signs for City not to be complacent, even though they face Schalke in the first leg of their last-16 tie in the Champions League on Wednesday and then Chelsea at Wembley in the League Cup final four days later.But if Guardiola spots anything he does not like from his players, they can forget about appearing in those more high-profile fixtures.“I expect the best performance by each one of them,” he said. “Focus on all the details. That is the best way to prepare for Schalke and the League Cup final.“When you want to play a final in one week, or a tough game in the Champions League, the best way to prepare is to make a good game.”The Spaniard added: “The players have to risk. It would be a problem for them if they don’t risk and play like a professional to win the game.“If they think about the next game, maybe the next one they stay here (in England) and they don’t travel to Germany.“In those situations, I’m not a sweet guy. They have to take it seriously and play the game like it deserves.”– ‘Mahrez’s time is coming’ –One player expected to feature against Newport is City’s record-signing at £60 million ($77 million, 68 million euros), Riyad Mahrez.The Algerian has not started a Premier League match in 2019 but his manager insists that is no fault of Mahrez, but is simply a reflection of the outstanding form shown by some of City’s other attacking stars.“He is absolutely not guilty,” said Guardiola. “I am sad because he is training incredibly and is an incredibly talented player.“But we have people like Bernardo Silva and Raheem Sterling in top, top form and that is the only reason why.“Riyad is a guy we are happy with, but unfortunately I am not kind with him and I cannot give him the minutes he deserves,” added Guardiola of the former Leicester favourite.“If he had played the same minutes that the others had played he would have been in the top level. It’s not easy to come in and play at a high, high level for a guy who is not playing regularly.“I don’t have any doubts about his quality. He just has to keep going, not complain too much, move forward and fight more because his time is coming.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Pep Guardiola has warned his Manchester City stars against getting ahead of themselves when they travel to Newport County in the FA Cup © AFP / Paul ELLISMANCHESTER, United Kingdom, Feb 16 – Pep Guardiola has insisted his Manchester City players cannot afford to have an eye on the Champions League and the League Cup final ahead of their FA Cup tie away to Welsh minnows Newport County on Saturday.Premier League leaders City take on the side currently 15th in League Two, the fourth tier of English football and 82 places below them on the league pyramid, for a place in the quarter-finals.last_img read more

Founding partner of law firm Milberg Weiss pleads not guilty to federal kickback charges

first_imgHe is charged with conspiracy, racketeering, obstruction of justice and making false declarations under oath. Weiss made an initial court appearance in a brief hearing Friday afternoon before Eick, who ordered him to hand over his passport. Following the hearing, he issued a statement saying he looks forward “to clearing my name and returning to a practice to which I have devoted my professional life, one that has given access to the courts to millions of Americans who would not otherwise have been able to achieve justice.” Prosecutors allege the secret payments were made through various intermediary law firms and lawyers selected by the plaintiffs. The lawsuits resulted in $250 million in attorneys’ fees to the law firm. If convicted on all charges, Weiss faces a maximum sentence of 40 years in federal prison, prosecutors said. Other participants in the scheme have pleaded guilty, including David Bershad, a former managing partner at the New York-based Milberg Weiss and Steven Schulman, an ex-name partner at the firm, prosecutors said. Last month, another former name partner, William Lerach, agreed to plead guilty to a conspiracy charge. He is expected to enter his plea at a hearing scheduled for Oct. 29.

Also entering pleas of not guilty were alleged paid plaintiff Seymour Lazar — whose attorney was present on his behalf — and attorney Paul Selzer, who prosecutors claim was one of the intermediary lawyers who laundered illegal kickback payments for Lazar’s benefit. Attorneys representing the law firm itself entered a not guilty plea. The New York-based Milberg Weiss is a named defendant in a federal grand jury indictment returned last month. Weiss, Selzer and attorneys representing Lazar and the firm are due back in court later this morning for a hearing on the case. On Sept. 20, a federal grand jury indicted Weiss for allegedly conspiring to pay $11.3 million in illegal kickbacks to named plaintiffs in class action lawsuits. The founding partner of the once-powerful law firm Milberg Weiss, accused of conspiracy in a $250 million plaintiff-kickback scheme, pleaded not guilty to federal charges today in a downtown Los Angeles courtroom. Melvyn Weiss, 72, is accused of participating in a scheme in which his firm’s clients were secretly paid kickbacks for serving as named plaintiffs in more than 150 class-action lawsuits over 25 years. By signing up plaintiffs quickly, the law firm was able to become lead counsel on class-action lawsuits, resulting in higher attorneys’ fees, prosecutors said. Weiss is free on a $1.5 million bond. Weiss said little during the hearing before U.S. District Magistrate Charles Eick, only confirming his name and declining to have his indictment read to him in court. last_img read more

UPDATED: FAMOUS HOTEL DESTROYED IN OVERNIGHT FIRE

first_imgTHE Lough Swilly Hotel in Buncrana lies in ruins this morning after being burnt down overnight.It took fire crews an hour to bring the fire at the derelict hotel under control and through until this morning to dowse down the embers. An order allowing for the building to be knocked down was granted two years ago.No-one was hurt overnight.The Swilly Hotel was was built in 1865 but has been derelict for a number of years.In 2010 An Bord Pleanla granted planning permission to Brian Flanagan to knock down the building and build a upmarket residential development, consisting of 74 residential units, three houses, a creche and 97 car parking spaces, some underground. Buncrana Town Council initially granted conditional planning permission on the site but this was appealed to An Bord Pleanla by some residents.The hotel stopped operating in the 1980s and was used recently as a furniture warehouse.The road around the hotel is still sealed off; with access to the Swilly Ferry will be stopped for a time while a clear-up operation gets underway.     UPDATED: FAMOUS HOTEL DESTROYED IN OVERNIGHT FIRE was last modified: August 22nd, 2012 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

49ers sweep past UCR

first_img With five full days of practice this week (the team will practice on campus Friday before boarding a flight for Sacramento for its game with Davis), coach Brian Gimmillaro plans to limit the work of Crimes (knees) and Mariko Crum (back) in order to rest their aches and pains. “We weren’t sure Mariko (three kills) was going to be able to play until right before the start of the match,” he said. “And Alexis’ knees have been hurting for a while.” Crimes doesn’t think the discomfort in her knees is a major issue. “It’s just catching up with me from the summer,” she said of her time in late July with the U.S. junior national team in Turkey. “I ice them (after practices and matches) and take some aspirin a few hours before a match. Mainly, I just need to stay off my legs as much as I can and rest them (her knees).” Junior Robin Miramontes turned in her second consecutive solid performance for Long Beach with eight kills and eight digs while freshman Ali Daley added nine kills to go with her .500 attack percentage. Senior Jamie DeKiewiet led UCR (13-6 overall and 2-5 in conference) with 15 kills and five digs. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

But Saturday night, as was the case the previous evening, no one on hand in the Walter Pyramid seemed to mind. The 49ers made even quicker work of the UC Riverside Highlanders Saturday than they did the Cal State Fullerton Titans the night before, sweeping them in 75 minutes, 30-14, 30-23 and 30-17 in front of 1,243. Long Beach, with a season’s best attack percentage of .433, won its fifth match in a row to improve to 5-1 in the Big West Conference and 15-4 overall. center_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week Sophomore Alexis Crimes (15) and senior Erika Chidester (11) combined for 26 kills on only 44 swings for the 49ers, who go outside of a conference play for a match at UC Davis next Saturday night. The 49ers will play host to two of the four best teams in the Big West (Cal Poly San Luis Obispo and UC Santa Barbara) when they are back in action in the Walter Pyramid on Oct. 28-29. But there seems little likelihood that the team will be looking past a Davis team that the 49ers swept at home on Sept. 23. “We can’t look ahead,” Crimes said, after a performance that included a .400 attack percentage and a game high four block assists. “We have to focus on continuing to improve as a team.
