first_imgCommuters and drivers, as well as pedestrians on Friday morning, had a hard time keeping their heads straight as they went about their business on Vlissengen Road, Georgetown, which had a carnival-like atmosphere as the Natural Resources Ministry launched its Mash band.The Ministry braved the rains to launch its band which will see the participation of about 100 revellers.Those who gathered to witness the launch were entertained by live performances of several talented artistes before the brightly coloured costumes were displayed by beautiful women dancing to tunes of Soca, Reggae and other Caribbean vibes.This year’s costumes were designed by Nelsion Nurse under the concept “promoting sustainability and development” as was pointed out by the event’s host, Curtis “Casual” Armstrong.The Natural Resources Ministry’s band getting themselves ready for the celebrations next week as they proudly display their costumesHe explained, “This concept highlights Guyana’s movement away from valuing of forests for simply their wood and trees and instead treats forests as part of our national patrimony. It is to be managed collectively. Forest cover approximately 87 per cent of Guyana’s total surface area and the country’s economic development and prosperity is, therefore, directly tied to the management and use of its forest and forested lands”.In this regard, the float happens to be a representation of Guyana’s forest.

first_img Manchester United face Southampton on Monday night boosted by the news that captain Wayne Rooney and striker Radamel Falcao should be available for the trip to St Mary’s. 1 Manchester United face Southampton on Monday night boosted by the news that captain Wayne Rooney and striker Radamel Falcao should be available for the trip to St Mary’s.The Red Devils have won four games on the bounce to move into the Champions League qualification places and victory against the Saints would move Louis Van Gaal’s side up to third in the Premier League.Van Gaal has had his attack decimated by injuries and suspensions this season but could call upon his full quota of strikers for the first time since September.Should Rooney and Falcao go straight into the first team? And is it time to rest Robin Van Persie?Here’s how Man United could line-up against Southampton:GoalkeeperDavid De Gea reinforced his credentials as one of the best keepers in world football with a brilliant save from Mame Biram Diouf in injury time to preserve all three points for United against Stoke in midweek and will continue between the sticks.DefenceJonny Evans provided Van Gaal with a defensive boost running out for United’s Under-21 side against Southampton on Monday night.It’s probably too early to throw him back into the first XI and United will likely line-up with the same back four from midweek – Antonio Valencia, Chris Smalling, Marcos Rojo and Ashley Young.MidfieldAngel Di Maria will miss the trip to Saint Mary’s after suffering a hamstring injury so Michael Carrick, Marouane Fellani and Ander Herrera should continue in midfield.It’s no surprise that United’s impressive run of performances have coincided with Carrick’s return from injury, while Fellani has enjoyed the best spell of his Old Trafford career over the past month and scored his second goal of the season midweek.Spaniard Juan Mata scored the all important winner against the Potters and should retain his place in the number 10 role.AttackWhen all of his strikers have been available Van Gaal has opted to play a three-pronged attack of Rooney, Falcao and Van Persie.Van Persie’s disappointing start to the season caused some concern and despite answering some of his critics with a well-taken goal against Hull last weekend, it may be time to rest the Dutchman given the busy Christmas schedule to follow.Man United fans, how do you think you’ll line up against Southampton?

first_img“Almost every team in baseball looks at it and says it would love to have some of that depth,” he said. He talked about his much-maligned hitters. “We beat a lot of good clubs and a lot of good pitchers without hitting the ball out of the ballpark for long stretches this season,” he said. Not hitting during the three-and-out stretch stands out like Garret Anderson’s sore eye. The Angels grind away with singles and doubles and by going from first to third and first or second to home. This approach, so successful in winning the not-all-that-powerful American League West, is fun. Unfortunately, it has not been good enough to get the job done in the playoffs. The grinding now must be done by Moreno and Stoneman. They must grind it down to the truth that this team is not quite good enough to get the job done. They must grind it down to the fact that Brandon Wood, their power hitter of the future, is at least two seasons away from becoming a major force. They can hold the course and hope for the best. They can make a run for Alex Rodriguez, who can opt out of his contract with the Yankees. One educated guess has it costing $32 million annually for his services. As A-Rod demonstrated in Seattle, Texas and thus far with the Yankees, his services do not guarantee winning it all. The cost is too high. Pass on him. This leaves a trade. Stoneman’s history is he will stick with the team he has put together. It is against his nature to do anything rash. This approach has made the Angels a solid franchise. But will it take them to the next level? General managers are reluctant to call Stoneman because he is hard to deal with – he is so reluctant to trade his prospects. “They do have a lot of good kids,” said George Brett, the Kansas City Royals Hall of Fame third baseman from El Segundo who was in San Pedro for the 2007 Sportswalk induction ceremony. The list of kids is impressive with Reggie Willits, Brett’s type of all-out player, Kendrick, Casey Kotchman and Wood. But they do need an additional big bat. They really, really need that additional big bat. “Then I’d get rid of one of the kids,’ Brett said. There’s another way of looking at all this. The Angels tried to find magic this year against the Red Sox with Anderson. They tried to make him Kirk Gibson or Willis Reed rising from injury to lead his team to victory. Only with Anderson it was not injury. It was a viral infection, conjunctivitis, pinkeye to everyone this side of the medical profession. Simply put, his vision was not clear. Anderson and the Angels insisted he could see well enough to play. Since baseball people hide as much of their medical information as possible, it was necessary to go to an outside expert, to Dr. Sanford Davidson, a Redondo Beach opthamologist who teaches at UCLA. It was not a complicated conversation. Reporter: “Would pinkeye affect Anderson’s vision?” Davidson: “Absolutely.” So it was a gamble to play him. Davidson: “They’ll treat him with steroid eye drops. It could take two weeks to clear up.” It was a big gamble to play him. Obviously, it was a gamble they believed was necessary, which is an indication of how desperate they are to add power to the lineup. Anderson verified the treatment after lifting himself from the third game when he could not see the ball well enough to play. Among the lessons learned were: the magic is not always there, and gambling, which the Angels might have to do in the trade market, does not always work. Have a nice trading season, Arte, Bill and Mike. mwsptcol@aol.com160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!

They have to decide if Boston’s 3-0 sweep, which gives them a depressing 0-7 playoff skid, means they must toss caution into that trash can and go get another bat for their lineup to have a legitimate shot at the World Series. Mike Scioscia, their always-loyal-to-management manager, said, “If there is a way to make us better, I know Bill and Arte are going to look at it.” He trusts them. Do you? Scioscia talked about his pitching staff. Quietly, thoughts to himself, Orlando Cabrera moved gear from his locker into a box to be shipped home to Cartagena, Colombia, for the winter. Howie Kendrick tossed some stuff into a trash can. This was all the Angels had left to do after Josh Beckett, Manny Ramirez, David Ortiz and their Boston Red Sox associates rudely tossed them from the playoffs. The end for the players is the beginning for owner Arte Moreno and Bill Stoneman, his cautious general manager. last_img read more

first_img1 Gary Roberts scored a second half penalty for Portsmouth Gary Roberts’ penalty made sure Portsmouth travel to Plymouth on level terms as they drew 2-2 in a ding-dong battle in the first leg of the Sky Bet League Two play-off clash at Fratton Park.Jamille Matt had scored twice to put the visitors in control, cancelling out Marc McNulty’s opener with a header before putting the Greens in front with a neatly-taken overhead kick.But Roberts netted a 51st-minute spot-kick after McNulty had been fouled.Portsmouth had only taken part in one play-off game before, against Leicester in 1993, and were forced to solve a goalkeeping crisis by signing Bournemouth’s Ryan Allsop hours before kick-off.Allsop was one of seven changes from the weekend’s defeat to Northampton, while Argyle made six of their own.McNulty opened the scoring in the third minute, slotting into the bottom corner after skipper Michael Doyle had stolen possession from Plymouth captain Curtis Nelson.The Scottish striker calmly placed the ball past an unmoved Luke McCormick for his 13th goal since joining on loan from Sheffield United in November.The lead lasted just six frantic minutes before Allsop had a howler to gift Matt a headed equaliser. Graham Carey’s diagonal cross was nodded back across the six-yard box by Gregg Wylde, Allsop flapped and Matt capitalised.Then came the biggest flashpoint of the evening as Matt appeared to bump heads with Doyle. No action was taken against the two players, but Portsmouth boss Paul Cook and Plymouth assistant Paul Wootton had to be separated.Referee Oliver Langford decided to send the pair to the stands, with Wootton already an unpopular man in the blue side of Hampshire having played for Southampton.Argyle went ahead for the first time in the 18th minute when Matt produced a spectacular volley which looped over the keeper.Forward Carey almost caught Allsop miles off his line with an audacious 35-yard effort but the strike drifted narrowly wide.Pompey had a sold out Fratton Park on its feet again when Roberts strode through and laid the ball off to McNulty, who dragged his strike just past the post.The hosts came even closer after 38 minutes as Ben Davies’ tackle-turned-shot fell to Kyle Bennett but the winger thrashed a shot against the left-hand upright.At the other end, Carey, a constant thorn in Pompey’s side, curled a free-kick into the side-netting.The hosts regained parity from the penalty spot after a full-pelt McNulty was hauled down by defender Peter Hartley.Roberts, who has been involved with either the play-offs or a promotion for the last seven years, stepped up and smashed the ball into the top-left corner.Livewire McNulty forced McCormick into a smart save when he got in behind, his fierce shot heading for the corner of the net.Davies nearly grabbed a late winner but could not beat the keeper at his near post, before Gareth Evans attempted an overhead kick of his own.The two sides will meet again on Sunday in the second leg for a place at Wembley.last_img read more
