Powered by Firework Indian speedster Jasprit Bumrah confessed his fondness for legendary Swedish footballer Zlatan Ibrahimovic because of the fact that he shut his critics time and time again. On Wednesday, the pacer appeared in a live chat with his teammate Rohit Sharma on Instagram when he revealed this secret before thousands of his fans. Advertisement “I love Ibra. I can relate to his story that people did not take him seriously and then he became a star. I can relate as I think people took me lightly initially and then I proved them wrong, I am still trying,” Bumrah told Rohit.Advertisement The 26-year-old grabbed the limelight on his IPL debut against Virat Kohli’s Royal Challengers Bangalore with his unorthodox bowling action. Since then his superb death bowling along with blistering super-fast pace has left fans and pundits all over the world bamboozled.However, in his early days, Bumrah was thrown under the bus for his weird action. But in his words, Lasith Malinga, his Mumbai Indians teammate, helped him through that difficult period.Advertisement “The communication was difficult initially. He taught me the mindset when he gets hit, he smiles. I used to get annoyed at the beginning but he explained there is no point getting angry,” Bumrah said via Instagram live.With the 13th edition of the Indian Premier League postponed amid the ongoing coronavirus crisis; Mumbai Indians skipper Rohit Sharma said that he is eager for the tournament to begin soon again because of the new exciting players at his disposal.“We were excited with the team this time. Was very much looking forward to this year. We had a lethal new-ball bowling combination with you and Trent Boult. And we added Chris Lynn in our batting lineup.”“We have all our bases covered this year. But it’s ok we can’t control such things,” he said.The IPL 2020 was postponed until April 15 amid the COVID-19 scare, but with the announcement of a 21-day nationwide lockdown, the cancellation of the tournament looks inevitable.

Triple murder accused threatens Police Prosecutor, family

first_imgPolice Prosecutor Deniro Jones of the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts, on Thursday received a slew of deadly threats towards him and his family by Orin Arthur, an accused on trial for three murder.Jones, speaking to Guyana Times, disclosed that he will not take the threats of the murder accused lightly: “I have already made a report to the court supervisor and later I will be going to the Brickdam Police Station to make another report.”The accused, while being escorted from the holding cell at the Court to the prison van, began hurling comments at the sight of the Police Prosecutor which then escalated into a heated argument.The argument between Arthur and Jones is suspected to have stemmed from the searching of Arthur’s food.Jones told this publication that on the previous day, Arthur’s family brought food for him at the holding cell and he ordered an officer to search the food. This, he noted, apparently offended the accused. He added that when a constable took the food to Arthur along with a bottle of water, Arthur threw the water on the constable.It was related that as Arthur was walking past the Police Prosecutor at Court on Thursday, he told him that his food must not be searched, to which the Police Prosecutor replied that it has to be searched.Arthur then told Jones that he will kill him and his family, while addressing him with several derogatory names. The officers at the court had to intervene and placed Arthur in the awaiting prison van.Thinking that to be the end of it, the accused still blurted that he has “his connections out of prison to do his external jobs.”Arthur is currently facing a joint charge for the murder of Guyana Geology and Mines Commission engineer Trevor Abrams, and the murder of Beharry Security Guard, Wilfred Stewart, at Sterling Products Limited on December 2014.According to prosecutors, Arthur is said to be facing a third murder charge.last_img read more

Man, 27, Electrocuted

first_imgResidents of Johnson Street near UN Drive in Monrovia woke up yesterday morning to the shocking scene of the lifeless body of a man who had reportedly been electrocuted.The late Andreu Saah, Jr., 27, whose body was dangling on a nearby electric pole was said to be in the habit of stealing and selling current to businesses and homes in the vicinities of Johnson and Warren Streets and as far down as the Rally Time Market Community near the Soniwein Creek.The death of Saah justified the maxim: ‘99 days for rogue and one day for the master.’ The deceased was a resident of Clay Street and a father of two (a boy and girl) whose mother was identified as Edna Varney.The electric pole that killed the victim has high tension wires and transformers said an LEC source.Up to press time last night, the LEC management had made no official comment on the incident, but they have on several previous occasions warned against “power theft” that has claimed several lives and caused thousands of dollars in losses to the Corporation.Eyewitnesses lamented that the late Saah had been in the habit of “stealing current from the LEC and renting them to all the money people” in the nearby communities at the rate of US$35 monthly.”“If you used the late Saah’s current in the day, you will pay US$35, but if you rented it for 24 hours, meaning both day and night, you would pay more,” some aggrieved residents told the Daily Observer as they glimpsed at Saah’s remains.Almost all those that gathered to view Saah’s corpse had at least encountered him in his “current business” at different times.An eyewitness, who claimed to be a “customer” who rented current from the late Saah, explained that Saah got electrocuted around 1a.m. yesterday when he and three of his alleged accomplices had gone to reconnect a customer they had previously disconnected for “being delinquent.”According to one source, Saah’s accomplices were each assigned with a specific task while he (Saah) carried out the illegal connection.For example, one of the three accomplices would watch out for any intruder(s) to their “hustle” and another would hold the ladder the victim reportedly used to climb the pole while the last man allegedly held the flashlight to provide a clear view as the “operation to connect or disconnect the wires proceeded.”   “Unfortunately he was ‘jerked’ by the current and subsequently electrocuted to the disbelief of his three accomplices who suddenly disappeared under the cover of darkness when they noticed that their man had died instantly,” our source said.Among the onlookers at yesterday’s dreadful scene were said to be customers of the deceased, owing to the way some of them were wailing bitterly, particularly the women who beat their breasts in distress.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

UN’s ruling could take 2 years – Greenidge

first_imgGuyana-Venezuela border controversyThe United Nations Secretary General António Guterres’s decision on the Guyana-Venezuela border controversy could take as much as two years to be handed down if needs be, Vice President and Foreign Affairs Minister Carl Greenidge said on Wednesday.Providing an update on the matter, the Minister said that nothing new has happened since the Good Offices Process ended on December 31, 2017 and aForeign Affairs Minister Carl Greenidgecommitment was made to clearly outline the way forward by the Secretary General.The Secretary General undertook to make a decision after a process which ended on December 31. “It is possible of course that he could take two years to answer…We are still waiting on the Secretary General to carry out his responsibilities,” Greenidge told <>> on Wednesday.However, the Minister said given the circumstances by which he was invited to carry out his mandate under the 1966 Agreement, Guterres was fully aware of the urgency of this matter.“And the fact that when the Guyana Government called on him to intervene, it wasn’t only because Venezuelan troops were on our borders, but because the continuation of this controversy caused by Venezuela claiming that the 1899 Treaty was null and void was having an effect on Guyana,” he added.“The Secretary General would know that during personal discussions with his personal representative, we made it very clear that our main concern was to embark on the process identified under the Geneva Agreement, but one that required an urgent resolution…And I don’t think we have to beat him over the head every week to tell him that,” Greenidge continued.Director General of the Foreign Affairs Ministry, Ambassador Audrey Jardine-Waddell had told sections of the media that after the Personal Representative to the Secretary General, Dag Halvor Nylander submitted his report on enhanced mediation efforts, the UN Head would decide the next step.“December 31 wasn’t the date of the decision. December 31 was when the process ended….Having received the report from his personal representative, the Secretary General will now make his decision and inform us of the decision,” Jardine-Waddell was quoted as saying.There have been reports that Secretary General Guterres could inform the two countries of his decision before the end of March 2018.“He didn’t have to inform us on December 31st; that was the date when the process ended,” Waddell reiterated.Former UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon had given an undertaking that 2017 would have been the last year of mediation to end the border controversy. If that process failed, the controversy would be referred to the International Court of Justice (ICJ), the principal judicial organ of the UN.Guyana maintains that the 1899 Arbitral Tribunal Award that settled the boundary issue between Guyana and Venezuela was full and final. But Venezuela has, for several decades, registered its diplomatic and military objection to Guyana’s development of its natural resources onshore and offshore.Venezuela, with almost 40 times the population of Guyana and a territory that is several times bigger, purported to claim in 1968 the entire territorial sea of Guyana by means of the Leoni Decree, which has never been withdrawn.On the military front, Venezuela’s navy in October 2013 seized the Malaysian-owned seismic research vessel, <<>>, that had been conducting surveys in a Guyanese oil concession offshore Essequibo for the US company, Anadarko Petroleum.In May 2015 when ExxonMobil officially announced a large oil find in its offshore Stabroek Block concession, Venezuela’s President, Nicolás Maduro had unilaterally extended his country’s maritime boundary to include almost all of Guyana’s maritime space.He, however, backed down after intense pressure from the 15-member Caribbean Community (Caricom) after it became known that his unilateral maritime demarcation had also included almost all of the Caribbean islands.last_img read more

Mourinho warns of tough season if Utd don’t strengthen

first_img0Shares0000Jose Mourinho has warned Manchester United face a tough season if they do not strengthen their squad © AFP / Christof STACHELONDON, United Kingdom, Aug 6 – Jose Mourinho has warned Manchester United face a “difficult season” if they do not strengthen their squad before the Premier League transfer window shuts on Thursday.United’s build-up to the new campaign has been dominated by Mourinho’s clear frustration over transfers, which has brought his relationship with executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward into the spotlight. The only arrivals at Old Trafford this summer have been Brazilian midfielder Fred, teenage full-back Diogo Dalot and back-up goalkeeper Lee Grant.In sharp contrast, Champions League finalists Liverpool have spent more than £170 million on new signings including Brazil’s World Cup goalkeeper Alisson and midfielders Fabinho and Naby Keita.“My CEO knows what I want and I still have a few days to wait and see what happens,” the Portuguese manager told MUTV ahead of his side’s pre-season friendly defeat by Bayern Munich on Sunday.“The other clubs who compete with us are really strong and already have fantastic teams. Or they are investing massively like Liverpool, who are buying everything and everybody.“If we don’t make our team better it will be a difficult season for us.”United were beaten 1-0 by Bayern at the Allianz Arena, five days before their Premier League campaign begins at home to Leicester.Mourinho, without some key players due to their involvement at the World Cup, including Paul Pogba, Romelu Lukaku and Jesse Lingard, brought on academy prospects James Garner, Axel Tuanzebe, Tahith Chong and Demetri Mitchell during the second half.At full-time, he compared his youthful team to the raft of talent at Bayern’s disposal, including experienced players such as Robert Lewandowski and Arjen Robben.“Finally, it’s over. Finally, such a difficult pre-season is over,” Mourinho told mufc.com.“The players were, once more, brilliant. They could not have done better than what they did. (It was a) fantastic experience for the boys.”Mourinho, who has been linked with moves for Tottenham defender Toby Alderweireld and Leicester centre-back Harry Maguire before the transfer window shuts, selected Alexis Sanchez as captain in Bavaria.Reports in Germany on Sunday said United have also expressed an interest in Bayern defender Jerome Boateng.Javi Martinez scored the only goal of the game in Munich, heading home from a second-half corner.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

ANGELS NOTEBOOK Speier’s knee injury doesn’t trouble club

first_imgBy Doug Padilla STAFF WRITER CHICAGO – One sign the Angels’ latest injury is not deemed serious is the faux ceremony held in the wounded’s honor. Justin Speier was presented with a G.I. Joe-like action figure by teammate Darren Oliver that had tape around the knee and dog tags around the neck, symbolic of the right-hander’s warrior-like attitude. Speier aggravated a sore knee while pitching in Baltimore and an examination revealed a strained medial collateral ligament. He was not an option out of the bullpen Friday night, but might return to action today or Sunday. “It was minor and then it was one pitch that I felt it more than before,” Speier said. “I thought it was knee tendinitis and then I got it evaluated. They’re thinking to calm it down for a few days and then get back out there.” One issue with an injury like Speier’s is that if he comes back too soon, he can run the risk of over-compensating for it which could lead to other issues like arm trouble. “You don’t want to change your delivery or change your mechanics and try to do something you’re not used to doing,” Speier said. “We’ll take it one step at a time. They have seen this before and we think it is a small issue.” Speier was told the injury is common with pitchers who drop their body during their delivery and drive toward home plate with their back leg, similar to guys like David Cone and Tom Seaver. Erstad focused on 2007 Former Angel Darin Erstad, finally healthy after another season of ankle injuries, was not in the starting lineup for the White Sox on Friday. White Sox prospects such as outfielders Josh Fields and Jerry Owens are getting a chance to play. Erstad said before the game that he has not decided if he will retire at the end of the season. The White Sox hold a $3.5 million contract option for next season or can utilize a $250,000 buyout. “I haven’t even thought about that and I’ll wait until this offseason and get to that,” Erstad said. “I have no idea. I’m not going to think about that. I’m going to finish it out here and worry about all that stuff later.” Erstad has played in 79 games this season, batting .253 with three home runs and 29 RBIs. Guerrero improves Vladimir Guerrero threw on the side before Friday’s game to test his inflamed right triceps. Guerrero has been the designated hitter the last four games, after missing the last four games of the previous homestand when the injury flared up. Guerrero might not return to right field until the team returns home for a seven-game homestand beginning Monday. Matthews update Gary Matthews Jr. also played catch before the game, coming onto the field in his cleats instead of the protective boot he had been wearing the past two days. Matthews sprained his right ankle sliding into second base Tuesday at Baltimore. Despite the progress from crutches on Wednesday to a walking boot only on Thursdays to no ankle support by Friday, there still is no timetable for his return. Izturis fills role At first it was an act of desperation but having Maicer Izturis in the No. 5 spot in the lineup for 14 of the last 19 games has grown on Manager Mike Scioscia. Izturis has eight RBIs in 47 at-bats out of the No. 5 spot and a .358 on-base percentage there before Friday. Izturis is batting .405 with runners in scoring position this season and has 43 RBIs. “If you unravel some layers of our team and what’s happening with it, it makes sense,” Scioscia said. “It’s not your prototypical five hitter, but he’s certainly meeting the needs we have.” doug.padilla@sgvn.com160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

No way! Manchester United star denies spitting at Cisse during victory over Newcastle

first_img1 Manchester United defender Jonny Evans has denied spitting at Newcastle forward Papiss Cisse during Wednesday night’s Premier League clash.The Red Devils defender was involved in an incident with the Senegalese striker during the 1-0 victory at St James’ Park, and the FA have already announced they will investigate the episode.A statement on the club’s website read: “Having woken up this morning I am shocked to have seen the media coverage from last night’s match. I would like to make it clear that I did not spit at Papiss Cisse.“I was totally unaware of any spitting incident and had assumed that the issue at the time was with the challenge and his attempted retaliation to the tackle from the floor. During the game Papiss Cisse and I spoke about the incident and it is clear by my reaction in the television footage that I was totally surprised by any suggestion of spitting.“It is not in my character or in my nature to spit at anybody nor is it something I have ever done or would ever do. It is certainly not something that I did last night.”last_img read more

Nobel award

first_img“There was indeed a genocide of the Armenians, and it will not be forgotten,” said Rep. Michael Pence, R-Indiana, who called his vote against the resolution “gut-wrenching.” Invoking the biblical saying that to everything there is a season, Pence said Congress should not vote on the bill while U.S. troops are at war in Iraq. Either genocide is right or wrong. It cannot be both at the same time. Since Pence is invoking a biblical saying, what does he think of the commandment not to murder? When does he think the Armenian genocide is in season? It’s almost 100 years old today. What is more important to the GOP, their values or their politics? – Shoshana Rubin Sylmar Vital ally Nancy Pelosi and her crew of dumb liberals in Congress should all win Darwin Awards. How stupid can they get? By passing this stupid Armenian genocide resolution, they may help the terrorists and Iran defeat our country in the Iraq battle. Turkey is a vital ally because 70 percent of the supplies to our troops go through Turkey. I take that back. A Darwin Award is too good for them. They should all have a tattoo put on their foreheads. That would be “T” for traitor. – Bob Budworth Woodland Hills Animal cruelty Re “Task force takes a hard line on animal cruelty” (Oct. 5): I am very pleased that the LAPD is finally taking aggressive action against animal cruelty. Hurting animals from anger or twisted pleasure is an egregious subhuman behavior. Some people may ask why there should be such focus on animal crimes when gangs are out of control. I have read from many sources that most convicted of wife beating, child abuse, molestation, murder and other heinous acts have begun their careers with the abuse of pets and animals. – Charles L. Murray Moorpark DWP asleep Re “Taxed to death” (Your Opinions, Oct. 7): Richard Stuber hit the nail on the head. The DWP is asleep at the wheel. They should use their money as intended, not as a tool to obtain a bonus and give City Hall a blank check, only to waste more on pet projects. Oh, I know, maybe our mayor can select a blue ribbon committee and spend more money trying to figure this out. Who holds the DWP accountable? – Nick Nicholson Northridge A chance to play I completely disagree with the LAUSD pay-to-play plans for community sports groups. The grounds have been laid and built for children in the community to make friends and play harmless sports. The point is to build a family and a strong community that unite on and off the field. It is crucial that each child of any income range gets a fair chance to play on the fields. If the schools began charging fees they would be limiting less fortunate children whose families cannot afford to pay. It is time to take children off the streets after school and get them involved in the community. It is not fair that LAUSD would put a price tag on any child’s playing experience. – Gina Assouad CSUN student Pacific Palisades Hiding my wallet Re “Antonio gets back to basics” (Oct. 12): With the mayor of El Pueblo de Los Angeles back to focusing on “our” basic services, I for one will be hiding my wallet. – Craig Crippen West Hills160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Man attacked sister’s boyfriend with iron bar and knuckle-duster

first_imgA young Letterkenny man was so addicted to synthetic cannabis caused him to become paranoid to the extent he attacked his sister’s boyfriend with an iron bar and knuckle duster.Sloan Murphy of 26 Glenoughty Close appeared at a sitting of Letterkenny District Court in April and was adjourned to allow for the preparation of relevant reports from the Probation and Welfare Service. Judge Paul Kelly heard how the defendant had been attending a birthday party in Oldtown, Letterkenny on September 1, last year, when he attacked the injured party with an iron ratchet handle.On another occasion, Murphy punched the victim in the face with an implement called a “knuckle duster” which resulted in him needing treatment in hospital.This week, having read the reports from the Probation Service, Judge Paul Kelly said they revealed that the defendant has a “irrational antipathy to the injured party who is going out with his sister”.It also noted that he was “addicted to synthetic cannabis” and added “his empathy to the victim is limited as he feels he is a bad influence on his sister”.The court heard from reports that Murphy has attended for drug use treatment but still has an “inability to rationally reason and problem solve” also suffers from paranoid thoughts and is in the “moderate category of re-offending”.Solicitor, Mr Frank Dorrian, told the court his client has the motivation to address these issues and has support from his grandparents. He is also commencing a welding course in Gaoth Dobhair and is not using drugs at the moment.Judge Kelly also noted the Probation Services have said the defendant does not need ongoing support from them and that he is a suitable candidate for community service.It was also outlined that the injured party does not wish to make a victim impact statement.Murphy was sentenced to two consecutive terms of 180 hours community service in lieu of six months imprisonment on each. He was also sentenced to six months imprisonment, suspended for a period of two years provided he commits no further offences during that time.Man attacked sister’s boyfriend with iron bar and knuckle-duster was last modified: July 3rd, 2019 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:attackcourtdrugsiron barknuckle dusterletterkennySloan Murphylast_img read more
