UNFAIR ACT Calabar High says that the Inter-Secondary Schools Sports Association (ISSA) has further deepened what it calls the perception of it being a body which considers itself to be above critique or accountability. The school says this is because ISSA has not responded to its request for a statement regarding its ruling, which allows Kingston College’s (KC) Ari Rodgers to compete at the ISSA/GraceKennedy Boys and Girls’ Athletics Championships later this month. Rodgers is a Ugandan middle-distance runner, who is regarded as one of the favourites for the Boys’ Class 2 1500m and 800m events at Champs. He joined KC in October last year, missing ISSA’s registration deadline of September 30. ISSA has cleared him to compete, citing what is being described as “extenuating circumstances”. However, Calabar, the defending Boys’ Champions, released a statement yesterday saying ISSA’s refusal to publicly address the complaints has led to the school making three assumptions. The first of these is that Rodgers’ eligibility is arguable as he is ineligible based on what it says is “ISSA’s clearly stated and enunciated criteria”. The second is that the student being registered before his arrival in Jamaica is inaccurate. Calabar’s statement says “to be promised, offered, granted a space in an institution isn’t the same thing as being registered. In fact, the Ministry of Education’s Policy is that a student cannot be registered in absentia. The parent may be absent for registration but not the student!” The third is that ISSA acted unfairly in that an exception was made for Rodgers and KC with regard to these “extenuating circumstances”, however, no similar lenience was shown to athletes of other schools in the past, who had situations that may also be considered extenuating. “Needless to say, it would be most helpful if ISSA articulated some of these factors and juxtaposed them against other instances in which they failed to apply this discretion,” the release from Red Hills Road-based school read. The statement went on to say that Calabar’s issue is with ISSA, not KC, and that it does not want to make Rodgers a victim of circumstances he did not create himself. Calabar’s statements are similar to those of its head coach, Michael Clarke, who recently told The Gleaner that he believes this decision will cause the public to seriously challenge ISSA’s credibility. He also said that the decision sets what he described as a dangerous and fragile precedent, because it now leads to the possibility of persons taking legal action against ISSA whenever an unfavourable decision is made in the future.

Porter took the inbounds pass and drove toward the basket passed it out to Jodie Meeks, who was alone in the corner when Marcus Morris cheated into the lane to stop Porter’s drive.Meeks made the open 3 to force overtime.“It’s a tough one. We had a lot of chances to win,” Morris said. “I put that on me for just committing to the ball, knowing that they needed a 3 and they kicked it out and made a great play.

Lads, research shows we need to take care of our eyes!Our eyes can tell a few tales about us, our age and our condition to name but a few. If we don’t look after our eyes then them tales could be exaggerated, we could look older than what we are, those mad nights out could be as clear as day or it may be blatantly obvious that we just don’t take care of ourselves.The most delicate skin on your face surrounds your eyes. Its layers are the thinnest and its oil glands the sparest. In addition, your eye area undergoes more wear and tear than other parts of your face because the eyes are so expressive. Therefore, it is the most vulnerable area for expression lines.So how do we look after the eyes?Use a moisture binding Eye Cream during the day that will keep your eye tissue in top condition by adhering to delicate eye skin for hours on end keeping it resilient and nourished.You can also use Gels that work best at night, instantly firming, soothing and repairing, resulting in a perfect lift. Puffy and tired looking eyes are generally the result of late nights, an excessive consumption of alcohol and a diet high in salt or an allergic reaction.If ya want to go to town on it lads, you can complement your Eye Cream by emptying a tray of ice cubes into your bathroom sink and mix it with a pint of tap water. Drench a face cloth with the icy solution and press off and on for at least five minutes. This invigorating treatment provides immediate results.There are several products for the eye area on the market for men, all you have to do is look. After a few weeks of research with the Mavericks we would recommend either Loreal men expert anti-ageing with double lifting eye or Bulldog anti-ageing. Although products are available locally we did source these two products via the internet.L’Oréal Men Expert Vita Lift Double Action Eye CreamBulldog Skincare For Men, Anti-Ageing Moisturiser, 3.3 fl oz (100 ml)Don’t forget gentlemen we have a great range of top end grooming products for men instore, not to mention great haircuts, beard trims and close shaves.

11 11 2. Chelsea: Romelu Lukaku, £100m – Chelsea could also smash their transfer record this summer, after the Telegraph reported Antonio Conte has urged the Premier League champions to re-sign the Belgian striker at any cost. That means even meeting the Toffees £100m asking price and he could be seen as the perfect replacement for Diego Costa. The Blues have not broken their transfer record since paying Liverpool around £50m for Fernando Torres in 2011. 11 8. West Ham United: Olivier Giroud £25m – With Arsenal set to sign Alexandre Lacazette, Giroud could be moved on and West Ham and Everton look set to battle it out for his signature. The Hammers broke their transfer record last summer when they signed Andre Ayew for around £20.5m. The Sun on Sunday claimed Everton are planning a £20m bid for the Arsenal hitman, so it might take a little more should Slaven Bilic pursue a deal and Giroud may favour a stay in London. The transfer window is officially open and we look all set for a busy summer.Several clubs have already broken their record, while others are close to smashing them with eye-watering sums of money, following the new TV rights deal.READ MORE: Premier League transfer news: All done deals so far in 2017 summer windowArsenal could complete a deal for Alexandre Lacazette in the coming days, which would be the highest fee they have ever paid for a player.But who else could set a new benchmark?talkSPORT has taken a look at the done deals and transfer rumours, to see which clubs have already – or are expected to – broken their transfer record.Click the right arrow, above, to view the slideshow… 10. Huddersfield Town: Aaron Mooy, £8m – The Australian was an unknown when Manchester City signed him from Melbourne City in 2016. He was sent on loan to Huddersfield and went on to be one of the best midfielders in the Championship. He was the club’s Player of the Year, scoring four times and assisting seven more, and was named in the Team of the Year as Town secured a shock promotion. They soon made his stay in West Yorkshire permanent, for a club-record £8m fee which could rise to £10m. 11 1. Manchester United: Neymar, £187m – The Red Devils, who broke the world transfer fee in 2016 with the £89m purchase of Paul Pogba, could double that record, according to reports in Spain. The Daily Star claims United are willing to meet the Brazilians £174m release clause and they may have to rival Paris Saint-Germain for his signature. This one looks highly unlikely, though. 9. AFC Bournemouth: Nathan Ake, £20m – It was surprising to see the Cherries fork out so much for the fairly inexperienced Dutch defender, who spent the first half of last season on loan at Dean Court. He impressed and was recalled by Chelsea boss Antonio Conte as cover in January, but he only made two appearances before being sold to Bournemouth in June, pipping the £15m they paid Liverpool for Jordon Ibe last summer. 5. Tottenham Hotspur: Ross Barkley £35m – The England midfielders future remains up in the air and could depend on whether Everton secure their transfer targets, with Gylfi Sigurdsson reportedly on their wish list. Barkley has one year remaining on his Goodison Park deal and manager Ronald Koeman warned the 23-year-old he would be sold if he does not pen another. Tottenham are said to be interested and Barkely could well flourish under Mauricio Pochettinos guidance, but Everton may have to lower their £50m valuation. A deal would probably pip the £30m paid to Newcastle for Moussa Sissoko in 2016. 4. Arsenal: Alexandre Lacazette, £52m – After years of rumours linking Lacazette to the Premier League, the Frenchman could finally be about to agree a record-breaking move to Arsenal. Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas says it is one or two days away from completion and could be worth around £45m, slightly more than the fee paid for Mesut Ozil in 2014. 11. Brighton and Hove Albion signed Mathew Ryan for a reported £6m to break their transfer record – click the arrow above, to see which clubs are set to smash their transfer records this summer… – The Seagulls were on the lookout for a new goalkeeper after David Stockdale joined Birmingham on a free transfer. When they announced the signing of 25-year-old Australian Ryan from Valencia, the Seagulls said it was a club-record fee and it was reported to be in the region of £6m. With Chris Hughton looking to have a strong campaign in the Premier League, that record may yet be topped. 11 11 11 11 7. Everton: Jordan Pickford, £25m – The Toffees have not messed around in this transfer window, signing Davy Klaassen for £23.6m and Sunderland and England U21 goalkeeper Pickford for around £25m, which could rise to £30m. This was hailed as a club-record fee, beating the £28m they paid Chelsea for Romelu Lukaku in 2014. 6. Stoke City: Mamadou Sakho, £30m – The Potters, who paid Porto £18.3m for Giannelli Imbula in 2016, have been linked with a move for Liverpool outcast Mamadou Sakho. The Frenchman is back on Merseyside after the end of his loan spell at Crystal Palace and the Reds have reportedly set a £30m asking price. 11 11 3. Liverpool: Naby Keita, £70m – A move that looks to be edging to a conclusion. RB Leipzig have been holding out all summer for £70m for the Guinean midfielder, who helped them to a shock second-place finish in the Bundesliga last season. Anything close to this figure would significantly smash the £37.9m paid to Roma for Mo Salah in June. Read the latest on the transfer here. 11

It is hoped to have the synthetic ice-rink open by June while the other developments will begin by Christmas.A source close to the multi-million euro project told Donegal Daily the plan is a real investment in the future of the county.“There are currently around 30 people employed at Century Cinemas and the new project will see that double and perhaps even go up to 80 full-time and part-time positions.“It’s a real investment for the future and will make the area an overall attraction for families,” he said. Permission for the plan, which will be on the site of the old Tony Kelly garage next to Century Cinemas, has already been given the green light by Donegal County Council.The new ice–rink will have the feel of a real ice-rink – the first such development in the county.“There is nothing like it around and it will be part of an over site which will incorporate the best in family entertainment around.“The cinema is already there and this will be a natural extension of what will become an entertainment hub,” added the source. 30 JOBS TO BE CREATED AS LETTERKENNY GETS ICE-RINK AND NEW ENTERTAINMENT CENTRE was last modified: April 30th, 2013 by StephenShare 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) Tags:30 jobsCentury Cinemasice rink
Delgadillo said domestic violence costs the economy $3 billion to $5 billion each year. “And, that is not even the real cost,” Delgadillo said. “The real cost is what we see in the harm to women and their children.” As part of the program, the city honored 15 Los Angeles police officers who have distinguished themselves in responding to domestic violence calls, including: Detective Howard Choy, and Officers Kosal Bun, Robert Canizales, Andres Cardenas, Mark Cleary, Todd Doyle, Gary Ferrato, Adam Niebergall, Alejandra Sampson, Elaine Avery, Deborah Myers, Daniel O’Hanian, Lonya Britton, Paul Aeschliman and Frank Lopez. Villaraigosa said domestic violence is an issue that he remains constantly aware of, including during a trip last week to Skid Row. “I met this woman, who couldn’t have been more than 22 or 23, with three kids,” Villaraigosa said. “She said she was a victim of domestic violence and had nowhere else to go. This is something we have to deal with if we are going to protect our children.” Rick Orlov, (213) email@example.com 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week Garcetti said the city has been in the forefront of the issue, creating Domestic Abuse Response Teams to work with the victims of abuse, offering shelter, medical and legal attention. The teams operate out of the West Valley and Van Nuys divisions as well as the 77th Street and Newton Divisions. Officials said they hope to expand teams to all stations in the city. City Attorney Rocky Delgadillo said his office also is creating a special unit to deal with the crimes and is launching an initiative to train employers to recognize the problem and provide services to workers who might be victims. The Los Angeles Police Department said it tracks more than 50,000 domestic violence cases in the city each year and prosecutes an average of 900 cases annually. To Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, domestic abuse is more than just a public policy issue. “It is something you never forget,” Villaraigosa said Friday at a news conference marking the start of Domestic Abuse Awareness Month. “I’m 52 years old, and I still remember what it was like to see your mother in the corner being beaten and you standing there helpless.” As part of efforts, the mayor and other city officials said they hope to expand prevention and response initiatives in the city and hope the month draws attention to the issue. “Seven in 10 of all the calls our police officers get involve domestic violence,” Councilman Eric Garcetti said. “If we could reduce that 20 or 30 percent, it would be the equivalent of hiring a couple of thousand officers.”
