Hiddink back at Chelsea

Posted on by

first_imgLONDON (AP): Guus Hiddink returned to Chelsea for a second spell as manager yesterday, hired until the end of the season with the tough task of turning around the struggling Premier League champions following Jose Mourinho’s firing. As Chelsea beat Sunderland 3-1 under the temporary command of Steve Holland, Hiddink watched from the stands at Stamford Bridge with owner Roman Abramovich and former striker Didier Drogba, who has been linked with a coaching role. Drogba scored in Chelsea’s 2009 FA Cup final win when Hiddink previously filled the Chelsea managerial void for around four months after the exit of Luiz Felipe Scolari. The 69-year-old Hiddink’s latest firefighting role comes with Chelsea only four points above the Premier League relegation zone following an alarming slump just seven months after sweeping to the title. “I am excited to return to Stamford Bridge. Chelsea is one of the biggest clubs in the world, but is not where it should be at the moment,” Hiddink said. “However, I am sure we can all turn this season around.” Chelsea said they viewed the Dutchman as a coach with a “wealth of top-level experience and success”. The club highlighted how fans were “singing his name following our final home game” of the 2008-09 season, but it was Mourinho’s name they were still chanting yesterday. Hiddink’s fortunes have faded since he was last at Chelsea. He quit as manager of Turkey after failing to qualify the team for the 2012 European Championship and did not win a trophy with Anzhi Makhachkala during a spell with the Russian club. He has been out of work since being fired by the Netherlands in June during the latter stages of his country’s unsuccessful attempt to qualify for Euro 2016. He had five losses, four victories and a draw during his year in charge of a team that finished third at the 2014 World Cup under Louis van Gaal, now the manager of Manchester United.last_img read more

Because of the dry conditions, the 18 courts saw nearly uninterrupted play over the first seven days of the tournament, which led to consistent wear.Neil Stubley, the club’s head of courts and horticulture, said on Saturday that the measurements his staff had taken over the first week of play showed that the grass was considered to be healthy and within the acceptable standards of use.ADVERTISEMENTlast_img read more

ICT project to roll out in 20 hinterland communities

Posted on by

first_imgAs part of the ICT (Information and Communication Technology) Access and E-Services to Hinterland, Poor and Remote Communities Project, 20 out of the 200 listed communities are soon to benefit from this initiative, primarily in the education sector.Public Communications Minister, Cathy Hughes on Monday convened a meeting at the Arthur Chung Conference Center (ACCC) with stakeholders across the country to address some of the new developments in the project which was inked back in 2016.Funded by the United Nations Development Programme, some US$608,000 has been expended so far for assessments, which will see the completion of hubs across 20 communities.This is deemed as a pilot project which will determine how the other 180 projects are executed. According to officials, these internet hotspots should be ready for commissioning by June.Through satellites, four megabytes per second bandwidth will be used in areas such Apoteri, Monkey Mountain, Kako, Shulinab, Kaikan, Surama, Jawalla, Philippi, Paruima, Isseneru, Kangaruma, Tasserene, Kurukubaru, Toka, Maruranau, Karaudanau, Kimbia, Wiruni, Aranaputa and Rewa.In giving her remarks, the Minister explained that the(From left to right) Project Manager Phillip Walcott, UNDP Representative Vidya Lokhnauth, UNDP Resident Representative Roberto Glavez, Public Telecommunications Minister Cathy Hughes and NDMA Chairman Floyd Lewisgap between the hinterland and coast will somewhat be bridged with this mechanism since persons will be exposed to all that is happening.“We’re excited that our ICT Access and E-Services to Hinterland, Poor And Remote Communities Project is really going to transform members of our indigenous communities…who for the first time will be able to access information communication services at a much higher level than has been provided in Guyana.”As part of the project, it was highlighted by Chairman of the National Data Management Authority (NDMA), Floyd Levi that students will be exposed to e-learning through live streaming and pre-recorded sessions.“This project will enhance our capabilities of providing e-learning to remote and hinterland communities. Classes conducted in Georgetown can be recorded or even live-streamed to residents in the hinterland,” said Levi.He added that it will allow for applications to be filled online, which eliminates covering large distances to do so on the coast. Added to that, they are also looking at providing telemedicine.The NDMA Chairman emphasised the fact that service providers face numerous difficulties in reaching these locations. As such, they are targeting communities which are unable to access services. For now, the cost of equipping each area varies because of the location.Project Manager, Phillip Walcott noted that after extensive research, they were able to identify the necessities of these areas and the approaches that are necessary.Through the National Implementation Modality, the project is funded under the Guyana REDD+ Investment Fund (GRIFF) and is valid for five years.last_img read more

NASCAR nabs more cheats

Posted on by

first_img“This is not the action of an organization, a manufacturer or a sponsor,” Waltrip said in a statement. “This was an independent act done without consent or authorization from me or any of my executive management team.” Waltrip spent all day Wednesday meeting with NASCAR officials, who publicly paraded Hyder and Kennedy through the garage as they were escorted out. Waltrip’s Toyota Camry was also on display as inspectors ripped pieces out from under the hood. His team worked furiously to prepare a backup car, but it had yet to clear inspection and Waltrip got no practice time Wednesday. He will be allowed to race the backup Thursday, if it passes inspection. Waltrip’s penalties came one day after the crew chiefs for 2003 champion Matt Kenseth, Kasey Kahne, Scott Riggs and Elliott Sadler all were suspended. All five drivers also were docked points in an unprecedented move by NASCAR, which never before had taken points before the season. NASCAR officials would not reveal what they found in Waltrip’s intake manifold, but a person with knowledge of the investigation told The Associated Press it was a property contained in jet fuel. The person requested anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss the details. Pemberton said only that the substance was not jet fuel itself. “We’re not going to go into any great detail, but it was a foreign substance that we feel should not have been inside the engine, and we’ll leave it at that,” Pemberton said. “I don’t think this is anything that we’ve seen in the recent past.” The substance was found during the inspection of Waltrip’s Camry before Sunday’s qualifying session. NASCAR seized the part and shipped it back to North Carolina for analysis. Adding the substance, described by NASCAR as an oxygenate, would boost the octane in the fuel, thus making the engine run better at higher horsepower. It was believed by NASCAR that the substance worked its way through the fuel system. Pemberton said the substance was discovered when a NASCAR official reached his hand into the manifold to feel for loose parts. “When he brought his hand out, there was a substance on there that was unlike anything he had ever seen in the inspection line before,” Pemberton said. Some rival team members said they thought NASCAR should have taken away more points from Waltrip’s team, because in a sport where cheating is common, tampering with the fuel is a rarity. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! On Wednesday, Waltrip’s team became the fifth caught cheating before the season-opening race, and six crew members have been thrown out of Daytona as NASCAR cracked down on rulebreakers like never before. “We’ve got people’s attention now,” NASCAR competition director Robin Pemberton said. Waltrip lost his crew chief and team director right before Sunday’s Super Bowl of racing. The two were suspended indefinitely after an illegal substance was found during inspection for the season-opener. Waltrip, docked 100 points, will be allowed to participate in Thursday’s races that determine the field for the 500. David Hyder, his crew chief, was thrown out of the garage and fined $100,000. Team director Bobby Kennedy also was kicked out. Waltrip said he was “so sad and embarrassed” but tried to shift blame to an unnamed individual within his team. center_img DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – The Daytona 500 is a wreck before it even gets started. A cheating scandal that had already brought down four teams now has ensnared another – that of two-time winner Michael Waltrip – tarnishing NASCAR’s signature race and Toyota’s highly anticipated debut. last_img read more

HARTE DEMANDS TWO MORE POST OFFICES FOR LETTERKENNY

Posted on by

first_imgDONEGAL North East Labour candidate Jimmy Harte has demanded An Post create two more post offices in Letterkenny.The Letterkenny Town councillor and county councillor said two new post offices in Gortlee and Glencar must be opened up to serve the town.“I am firmly of the view that we need post offices in these areas in order to service the burgeoning populations there and to ease pressure on the already-busy post office on the Main Street. “The sight of queues coming out of the post office on Letterkenny Main Street is one we are all too familiar with and it is not acceptable that people, especially the elderly, are expected to queue for a long time,” he said.Petitions asking people whether they would like a sub-post office in their area have been up in a number of local businesses for several weeks now.And Colr Harte says it’s more than obvious that people need more postl services in outlying areas of the town.“Already we have collected hundreds of signatures from people who support the campaign and we continue to do so. “The post office on the Main Street is an important asset to the town centre area but it has been overwhelmed in recent times because they are offering more services and dispensing more social welfare payments than before.“Now, more than ever, sub-post offices would help take the pressure of the main facility, which is an integral part of the Main Street area,” he said.EndsHARTE DEMANDS TWO MORE POST OFFICES FOR LETTERKENNY was last modified: January 19th, 2011 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)last_img read more

Andres Iniesta announces international retirement

first_imgAnd Iniesta, who dropped to the bench for the last-16 clash, scored in the shootout but could not inspire La Roja to victory.The 34-year-old represented his country on 131 occasions, scoring 13 goals.In a heartbreaking statement he said: “It’s a reality that is my last game with the national team.“It’s a wonderful stage, the endings are not always the way they dream, the coach makes decisions regardless of whether or not they understand them.” 2 Iniesta trudges off the pitch in Moscow Andres Iniesta has confirmed he has retired from international duty after Spain’s shock World Cup exit.The 2010 winners were beaten on penalties by hosts Russia, despite having the lions share of possession in Moscow. Having started all three of the group games, it came as a shock to many to see the former Barcelona man on the bench.He made his debut in 2006 before the World Cup Finals in Germany – starring alongside former teammate Xavi in midfield.The pair were almost untouchable as they helped Spain achieve their first ever major trophy in 2008 by winning the European Championships.From that point onwards, he never looked back – scoring the winner against the Netherlands in the World Cup Final in South Africa.Just two years later he was the centre of attention yet again, playing a starring role as La Roja retained the European Championships.The midfielder will now focus his attentions on helping new side Vissel Kobe in Japan ahead of the new J-League season. He scored the winner in the 2010 World Cup Final as he helped La Roja claim three major trophies in six years 2last_img read more
