THIS weekend’s first round of the National Drag Championship is fast approaching and the proverbial warnings are already being sent out.One workshop on the East Bank of Demerara, in particular, is sending strong messages to the faster classes.S&D Performance, with owner/mechanic Shawn Persaud, believes that it has what it takes to cause an upset come this weekend.S&D, who have five cars entered in this weekend, are confident that their machines will be able to retain all their titles and maybe even give the unlimited class a run for their money.Shawn, the 1000ft eight and 10-second champion cars of the GMR&SC Drag Championship 2018 are both housed under the garage with Shawn’s son Damion holding the 10-second title.Apart from the two Caldinas, Persaud’s shop also has included two Mazda RX-7s belonging to Peter Daby as well as Randel Daby’s Toyota Supra.It is unclear what challenges they bring to the Ekanoo/Magnus GTR, recently acquired by Team Mohamed’s Enterprise, but one thing is for sure, the times will be longer.However, the team is confident of putting on a good show, come this weekend.Meanwhile, Chronicle Sport has been able to confirm more than 90% of the newly-constructed launch pad at the South Dakota Circuit.Cars were seen testing on the venue yesterday ahead of Sunday’s meet and the unofficial feedback is one of pleasure.The interest by international competition in drag racing locally is now renewed with the installation of the pad.That, along with the fact that the strip is being extended from 1000ft to 1320ft or a quarter-mile, is also something that the local dragsters are keen on trying.Competition is also expected from Suriname.Ticket prices for fans desirous of witnessing the action will cost $1 000 for adults and $500 for children.The event is sponsored by Mohamed’s Enterprise, BM Soat Auto Sales, Motor Trend Service Centre, Delco Ice Factory, Trans-Pacific Motor Spares, Supreme Ventures, Air Services Limited, PowerLine Auto, Cyril’s Taxi, Omega Brokers, E-Networks, Prem’s Electrical, Miracle Optical, Choke Gas Station and Super Bet, R.

By Rajiv BisnauthBERBICE closed the shortened opening day of their second round Hand-in-Hand Under-19 Inter-county three-day encounter against Essequibo on 107-6 yesterday, at the Lusignan Community Centre ground.Essequibo, deciding to bowl first, utilised the conditions well with off-spinners Amit Persaud (3-53) and Lance Roberts (3-14), claiming three wickets apiece. Junior Sinclair struck an even 50 off 104 balls with one four and a six.The 18-year-old Alex Algoo, who struck 175 in round one, made 22 off 50 balls with one four and a six. Garfield Benjamin and Nigel Deodat were left unbeaten on 13 and 10 respectively when play ended after 43 overs.The start of play was delayed by a number of soft patches on the pitch, but ground staff did their best in rectifying the issue. After four inspections by the umpires, the start of play was given the green light.However, grey skies prevailed and a sharp shower just after 13:00hrs further delayed the start of play.That shower had left the bowlers’ run-ups somewhat soft, and after two additional inspections by the umpires, play eventually commenced at 15:00hrs.Winning the toss and deciding to bowl first, Essequibo opening bowlers, Ellian Whyte and Adrian Rankirpaul, bowled well but Berbice openers Algoo and Sinclair were solid. Despite the gloomy conditions, the right-handed pair added 42 runs for the first wicket.However, a double bowling change worked for the Essequibians. Persaud broke the promising opening stand when he dismissed Algoo. Thereafter, Berbice lost Jeetendra Outar (2), Kelvon Anderson (5), Seon Glasgow (3), Shamar Angel (0) and Sinclair in quick succession.Benjamin and Deodat then survived some testing moments to the close. Play is scheduled to start at 09:30hrs today.Berbice, the defending champions, drew their first round game against the Select Under-17 team while Essequibo suffered a humiliating nine-wicket defeat against leaders, Demerara, in their first-round encounter.
THE venues for the 2021 ICC Women’s World Cup in New Zealand have been revealed, with the final of the prestigious ODI tournament to be held under lights at Christchurch’s Hagley Oval.The tournament will kick off with an opening weekend at Auckland’s Eden Park, while matches will also be played in Wellington, Hamilton, Tauranga and Dunedin.The semi-finals will be held at Tauranga’s Bay Oval and Hamilton’s Seddon Park, while newly installed lights at Hagley Oval will ensure the decider can be held as a day-night blockbuster.In all, the 2021 ODI World Cup will feature 31 matches between February 6 and March 7 next year.Australia captain Meg Lanning would no doubt relish a return to Bay Oval, a venue where she has struck three of her 13 ODI centuries.Australia last toured New Zealand in early 2017, a campaign that saw them play at Bay Oval and Eden Park’s outer oval, while they also played three ODIs at the Tauranga venue in 2016 alongside two T20Is at Wellington’s Basin Reserve.The remaining venues will largely present an unknown to the Australians, if scheduled to play there. Ellyse Perry is the only current squad member to have played at Seddon Park, while none of the current group has played at Dunedin’s University Oval or Eden Park proper.The complete draw will be revealed in March.While Australia’s thoughts are currently firmly on the upcoming T20 World Cup, to be played on home soil from February 21 and culminating in the final at the MCG on March 8, the 2021 ODI World Cup is another tournament they will be desperate to succeed in after a disappointing campaign in the UK in 2017.After heading into that event as red-hot favourites, they were bundled out of the tournament in a shock semi-final loss to India, while hosts England went on to win the final at Lord’s.“Our goal was to ensure all 31 matches will be played at the best venues, encompassing a geographic spread that ensured as many Kiwi sports fans as possible get to engage with the tournament,” ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup CEO Andrea Nelson said.“It was great to see the enthusiasm from so many cities bidding for a chance to welcome the best players in the world to their backyard.”Currently, only Australia, New Zealand and defending champions England have qualified for the eight-team tournament.New Zealand qualify as hosts, while Australia and England’s strong performances across the current edition of the ICC Women’s ODI Championship – a three-year, round-robin competition to determine the four teams who automatically qualify alongside the host nation – have secured their spots.Two of Pakistan, South Africa, India, West Indies and Sri Lanka will join them following the final round of the Championship, while the remaining two spots will be decided at the World Cup qualifiers in Sri Lanka later this year.

It took Bucknell 57 minutes to do what Syracuse did in less than a minute.SU midfielder Chris Nanco scored just seconds into Tuesday night’s match against the Bison at SU Soccer Stadium and other than one second-half defensive lapse, No. 5 Syracuse (13-2, 4-2 Atlantic Coast) dictated play from start to finish, handing the Bison (6-9, 2-3 Patriot) a 4-1 defeat.“It’s always nice in the attacking third to get it down and move the ball,” Syracuse head coach Ian McIntyre said. “We created a lot of chances and scored some good goals.”McIntyre said the field was slick, almost a bit heavy, from the hour-long rain shower that ended moments before kickoff. During the Orange’s long-distance passing drill in warmups, numerous passes sailed high and skipped by their target. Midfielder Julian Buescher returned one pass meant for Juuso Pasanen that sent reserve goalkeeper Matt Stith ducking.But SU players used the conditions to their advantage as it accelerated their passes and quickened the pace of the game. In the early moments, the wet surface proved costly for the visitors.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textNanco and Emil Ekblom pressured Bison goalkeeper Mike Lansing’s first touch and the junior whiffed on an attempted outlet pass. The speedy Nanco, who positioned himself to cut off Bucknell’s outside back, jumped on the loose ball and one-touched a shot into the bottom left corner of the net.“We couldn’t have started the game better,” Ekblom said.Nanco’s strike — his fifth goal of the season — was the first of 12 shots for the Orange, eight of which were on goal.In the 13th minute, Nanco slid a pass into the middle of the 18-yard box for Ekblom, who sent a shot toward the right corner of the net. Lansing dove across, sprawling out for his best save of the match and leaving SU’s leading scorer shaking his head.But Ekblom’s elusiveness and combination passes with Nanco highlighted an overall solid night, as the sophomore finished with a team-high four shots on goal.In the 22nd minute, winger Oyvind Alseth lined up for one of SU’s 10 corner kicks of the first half. The sophomore placed a pass onto the head of Ekblom, who redirected it by Lansing to give the Orange a 2-0 lead.In the 40th minute, SU forward Noah Rhynhart took a shot from the right side of the 18-yard box that Lansing dove across the cage to prevent from going in. Moments later, Ekblom and Alseth connected on a backheel give-and-go, but Ekblom’s shot was blocked by a defender.“We started off, moved the ball around, they couldn’t really catch us,” Ekblom said. “The first half was very good. We created some good chances, had some good plays and kept possession.”Syracuse was mere feet away from extending its lead to 3-0 minutes before halftime. Off an Alseth corner kick, Lansing turned around and punched the ball off his own crossbar and over the net. Minutes later, the Bison keeper was replaced by Clarke Fox.Though the visitors scored to cut the lead in half 11 minutes into the second half. Three minutes later SU scored again.An unlikely hero, Alseth, scored the first goal of his SU career in the 58th minute to extend the lead to 3-1. The defender-turned-midfielder scored again eight minutes later, putting the game out of reach. Syracuse’s cushion allowed McIntyre to play five reserves off the bench.SU’s victory marks the 20th consecutive in nonconference play and caps an undefeated nonconference schedule this season.It was a victory that stemmed from two likely sources, its leading goal scorers Nanco and Ekblom, and one unlikely source, Alseth.“We were pressing them a lot up top and they were making mistakes,” Nanco said. “We were getting the ball closer to the net. It’s much easier to score goals when you’re closer to the net.” Comments Published on October 21, 2014 at 11:16 pm Contact Josh: email@example.com Facebook Twitter Google+
Regulations are being developed to guide a legal hemp industry in Jamaica and should be in place next year.Chairperson of the Cannabis Licensing Authority (CLA), Hyacinth Lightbourne says a systematic approach is being taken to the hemp industry’s establishment in Jamaica. This development is relative to that for marijuana, “because hemp that is planted too close to ganja breeds the possibility of cross pollination.”She said advice is being sought in relation to minimizing this possibility and “whether or not it has to be done specifically indoors.”“Unfortunately, we live on a small island that (can be impacted by) hurricanes, so the possibility of cross pollination is high,” Lightbourne explained.Indica and SativaCannabis is divided into two main pure strains – Indica and Sativa. Both hemp and marijuana come from the same cannabis species, but are genetically distinct. Hemp is a variety of the Cannabis sativa species that is grown specifically for the industrial uses of its derived products.236 applicationsDr. Lightbourne was one of the speakers at a session on medical marijuana at the Jamaica 55 Diaspora Conference this week. She also disclosed that the CLA, established in 2015 under the Dangerous Drug (Amendment) Act to formulate and regulate Jamaica’s legal ganja and hemp industry, received 236 applications for licenses since its implementation last year.Five categories of licenses are issued covering: cultivation, processing, transportation, retail, and research and development.Lightbourne said that of the 236 applications, two licenses have been granted and 44 conditionally approved, but none of them has been actually issued.Six months for licensing processShe explained the licensing process takes an average of six months. During this period, the requisite checks and balances are conducted to ensure the applicants’ adherence to the stipulations.“If a person has been granted a license but has either not yet paid the security bond or the fees, the license is not issued. So, for those two applicants, that’s what we are waiting on,” Lightbourne disclosed.She reiterated the Government’s commitment to developing a properly regulated marijuana industry in Jamaica.
Thursday night was a busy one for Russell Westbrook.The star point guard was traded to the Rockets for Chris Paul, and when the deal went down, Westbrook was hosting a charity comedy show called “Why Not?” in Tulsa, Okla. The joke was in reference to Durant leaving Westbrook and his Thunder teammates for the Warriors in 2016. Apparently Russ can now look back on that time and laugh. In the three years since KD made that decision, he and Westbrook have been able to reconcile their friendship.Durant recently signed a four-year, $164 million deal with the Nets. Despite the craziness, Westbrook found some time to enjoy himself and even laugh at a joke told at the expense of his former teammate, Kevin Durant. TRADE GRADES: Evaluating the deal for Rockets, ThunderSo, there was a Kevin Durant joke at Russell Westbrook’s comedy show in Tulsa last night, and @russwest44 seemed to approve. Comedian Lance Woods with the @KDTrey5 punchline. You can see Russ laughing at the end of the video. The #NBA is fun. #Thunder #Rockets #Nets pic.twitter.com/qjBFERzY9u— Nathan Thompson (@NathanDThompson) July 12, 2019″Kevin Durant came by — this is how long ago this was, many years ago — so KD came by. So now we all talking. So it was me, Russ and KD. And Russ was like, ‘When’s your next show?’ And I said, ‘I’m gonna be in the Bay Area soon.’ And KD said, ‘Me too!’”
