People keep the category, but those results indicate that it will be very complicated. “
ROSEAU, Dominica (CMC):Grenada’s Prime Minister Dr Keith Mitchell has bristled at the suggestion by West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) President Dave Cameron that his board was too busy to have an urgent meeting with CARICOM leaders to discuss the recommendations of the Governance Review Panel report.Speaking on the opening day of the OECS Summit here, Mitchell reiterated that CARICOM heads were serious about ensuring there were fundamental changes in West Indies cricket and urged Cameron to focus on the interests of Caribbean people and not those of himself and his board members.”We (CARICOM heads) said we’re prepared, in the interest of our people, to meet immediately to look at how we’re going forward,” said Mitchell, who is also chairman of CARICOM’s Cricket Governance Committee.”I can’t believe this … I saw a (news) report the president of the West Indies Cricket Board say his people are very busy – they are professional people with a lot of responsibilities – so the heads are not professional people. So we can meet, we can give up everything else.”All I ask the president (is to) accept the responsibility and think less of yourself and your board members and more of the people of the entire Caribbean.”Earlier this month, Mitchell had asked Cameron for an “urgent meeting” to discuss the Governance Review Panel report, which, among other things, recommended the “immediate dissolution” of the WICB.However, Cameron suggested at the time, and reiterated last weekend, that there was unlikely to be any talks with CARICOM before the already scheduled December 12 directors’ meeting in St Lucia.Delivering the feature address at Cayman Cricket’s Annual Awards Dinner in George Town last Saturday, Cameron said the board comprised a “number of professionals” and therefore simply calling a meeting was “not that easy”.Mitchell said he found it hard to accept the WICB’s reluctance to meet urgently with CARICOM heads, especially since it was the board who had agreed to the establishment of the panel and had helped to recommend its members.”Let me state the facts. Our leaders recognised that they had a responsibility to the people not to just a particular issue, but to the people, so what affects the people must affect the leaders. If not, we’re not leaders,” explained Mitchell, who, along with several other Caribbean prime ministers, met with the WICB in a crucial meeting last April in Grenada.”We agreed to meet with all stakeholders. We gave of our time – the prime minister of The Bahamas (Perry Christie) his country plays little or no cricket, but he left his country and came to Grenada, engaged with the West Indies Cricket Board and all stakeholders.Board decisions”We agreed to set up an independent body with distinguished Caribbean citizens and we agreed to give serious effort to implementing the decision of that group. It was not a Keith Mitchell recommendation, it was not a (Roosevelt) Skerritt recommendation, the leaders proceeded to give effect to that.”The board had on its team the head of (their) Governance of Cricket – the distinguished president of the Caribbean Court of Justice (Sir) Dennis Byron. They recommended him to be on the committee. They recommended the Caribbean Development Bank president (Dr Warren Smith). It was not my recommendation …”Mitchell said Cameron and the WICB needed to take a cue from Caribbean leaders who were also busy but were willing to make time to discuss the recommendations.”Now,, the recommendation comes out, I cannot understand. Heads of Government are busy people, they have so much to do, I don’t need extra work,” the Grenada leader stressed.”Sometimes, I can’t find a minute to midday in Grenada to do some of the things I have to do, so I don’t need this and I know all leaders don’t need it.”He made it clear that the move to establish the panel was purely out of a desire to rescue Caribbean cricket.”We have our problems. Like everything else, we’re up today and down tomorrow, but we are down far too long and we can only see one thing going down and down.”

SACRAMENTO – The state Board of Education voted unanimously Thursday to make the high school exit exam mandatory for students with disabilities, rejecting alternatives and risking further litigation from critics who argue that the test does not measure those students’ skills. State Superintendent of Public Instruction Jack O’Connell recommended that the board reject other options such as breaking up the test into multiple parts or allowing students to present a portfolio of their work instead of passing the exam. The test became a requirement to earn a high school diploma in California starting with the class of 2006, but blind, deaf and other disabled children classified as special education students won a two-year reprieve after a lawsuit settlement and legislative action. The test becomes mandatory for them in 2008. As part of the legal settlement, the Legislature voted last year to require the state Department of Education to come up with alternatives for disabled students who have met all other graduation requirements but cannot pass the test. “All we’re going to do is file another lawsuit and continue this issue year after year,” she said. “What we really need to do is provide just and fair and constitutionally protected options to a class of federally protected students.” The Senate Appropriations Committee is due to take up Romero’s bill later this month. The proposal adopted Thursday also will require legislative approval, and could be modified by lawmakers.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! The board on Wednesday adopted O’Connell’s proposal to leave the test requirement in place and standardize the process for students to receive special modifications while taking it, such as having questions read aloud to them or using a calculator for some portions. Their decision upset advocates for the disabled, who say that a shortage of special education teachers leaves many students unprepared to pass the controversial exam. “We were hopeful that they would take their responsibility seriously, but it looks like in the end the Board of Education decided to abandon special ed students and to leave them at the mercy of a school system that’s not doing a good job teaching them,” said Roger Heller, an attorney for Disability Rights Advocates, which sued the state on behalf of special education students in 2001. In a presentation to the board in February, the group asked the state to examine whether the test is a valid measure for special education students. It also recommended adopting a juried portfolio, allowing students to demonstrate their work to a jury of evaluators instead of taking the test. Such a proposal is included in legislation by Sen. Gloria Romero, D-Los Angeles, that would allow students to show that they can meet the same standards measured by the California High School Exit Exam. Romero called Thursday’s vote a “duck and run” decision that avoids the issues the board was supposed to address.
The win saw Gor Mahia move to 25 points, two ahead of second placed Mathare United who lost 1-0 to Wazito on Saturday. K’Ogalo have three matches at hand due to their participation in the CAF Confederations Cup.It was a happy ending for Gor with their afternoon having started off with three of their fans perishing in an accident as they travelled to Machakos to cheer on the team. The fans were allegedly precariously hanging on a bus before they toppled off after the vehicle came into contact with another saloon car.On the field, Gor almost paid for some bit of laxity with Thika taking control with a 2-1 lead on the hour mark, but keeper Allan Owiny took the glimmer off teammates Masakidi Mata’s beauty of a freekick after pushing Jacques Tuyisenge’s shot into his own net four minutes later.Gor Mahia debutant Raphael Asudi tries to dribble past Thika United duo of Baraka Badi and Sosthenes Idah during a Kenyan Premier League match at the Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos on April 22, 2018.

The keeper first rushed out to cut off an onrushing Tuyisenge but missed the ball completely.As if that was not enough, Tuyisenge’s shot was blocked by Franko Bala, but the keeper rushing back to his line pushed the ball into his own net as he attempted to tip it over.Gor struck the winner in the 74th minute when Innocent Wafula lifted the ball over Owiny on the left and on onrushing Onyango side footed it home unmarked from the right.Kagere then put the game beyond Thika United the job barely 10 minutes after coming on, racing on to a through pass from Kahata before calmly finishing past Owiny.But the best was saved for last as Kahata put the icing on the cake in sublime fashion, noticing keeper Owiny off his line before defly chipping the ball into the net.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Gor Mahia players celebrate one of their five goals against Thika United during a Kenyan Premier League clash at the Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos on April 22, 2018.

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREStriving toward a more perfect me: Doug McIntyre “These are God’s children – not just at Thanksgiving or Christmas, but all year-round – and so this is what we do.” With social needs mounting in Southern California – there are more hungry and homeless, more disabled, mentally ill and abused wandering the streets – some churches and synagogues are on a mission. They’re stepping in to help, without the miles of red tape that bog down public aid. At Simi Valley United Methodist Church, congregants work in hard harts and tool belts building Habitat for Humanity houses for low-income families. The 50-member Sonshine Christian Church in Newhall just gathered the money to help a family that lost its home in last month’s wildfires. Before that, members gathered to re-roof and make other repairs at the home of a family in need. North Hollywood’s Temple Adat Ari El hosts a rotating homeless shelter once a month, and organizes regular collections of food, baby items and other essentials for the needy. A couple times a month, a group gathers in a church kitchen in Hermosa Beach and turns eight loaves of bread into sandwiches for scores of AIDS patients. In Chatsworth, meanwhile, women from a church in Northridge bring birthday cakes to Rancho San Antonio Boys Town, a Catholic group home for teens in trouble. For many of the more than 100 residents, it’s the first time anyone’s celebrated their birthday. Church groups like these work hands-on year-round helping those in need – the homeless, the hungry, the incarcerated, the sick and the poor. But unlike seasonal gift collections and food drives, their work doesn’t begin and end with the holidays. “It’s what our faith calls us to do, to reach out to folks in need,” said the Rev. Jerry Stinson, senior pastor at First Congregational Church in Long Beach, which runs programs for the homeless and for poor children. Temple Israel’s leaders met this week at the Long Beach Reform synagogue to begin plans for Mitvah Day in March in which members young and old take on small tasks that make a big difference. Retiree Audrie Wing is a member of the AIDS Ministry of St.Cross by-the-Sea Episcopal Church in Hermosa Beach. She and a dozen other women meet once or twice a month to make lunch and deliver it to some 75 AIDS and HIV patients at Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center. Earlier this week, the women collected their Costco groceries and turned out piles and piles of tuna, peanut butter-and-jelly, turkey and ham-and-cheese sandwiches. Salad, chips, drinks, cookies and candy were added to the load and three of them headed to L.A. where the feast was set upon tables in a hospital waiting room. “For me, it’s important to my belief, my faith,” Wing said. “It’s important to do something for other people. Being hands-on is very meaningful – not for them, for me.” For the teens at Rancho San Antonio, a birthday cake, a card and perhaps a small gift from members of the women’s guilds at Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church in Northridge go a long, long way. “Some of these kids have never had anyone remember their birthday, let alone make them a cake,” said Brother John Crowe, director of the center. “I think the card oftentimes means the most – someone they don’t know doing these things. They find out there are people in life who care about other people because they are human beings, not because they can do something for them.” “It’s a concept a lot of kids don’t have when they first come here.” In Long Beach, Stinson’s church hosts year-round programs for the homeless and a special summer day camp for children from low-income families. The church, with help from other congregations, allows about 130 homeless to sleep on its grounds, shelter that in the past caused some problems with City Hall, Stinson said. On Sundays, as many as 500 homeless come to the church for two meals, a chance to watch videos and read newspapers and an opportunity to use the church computer room to catch up with e-mail and other business. The summer day-care program means meals for children from low-income households, some academics and a lot of fun. Everyone benefits, Stinson said, when worshipers get their hands dirty helping those in need rather than consider their duty done Sunday mornings after the collection plate is passed. “It’s easy to write a check in a lot of cases,” Stinson said. “It’s only when you volunteer, you begin to understand homelessness. When you work with the neighborhood kids, you understand what poverty does.” In the end, the faithful benefit by practicing the lessons learned from the pulpit and society benefits because people with jobs and homes quickly understand what it’s like to be without, Stinson said. “You begin to see you commonality with those folks and next time legislation comes up you respond differently than when you just write a check. The service leads to advocacy.” For the members of Sonshine, it’s about emulating Christ. “For us faith is everything, and Christ is the example,” the Rev. Richard Assad said. “Real salvation comes from following his example and if we do that, God will give us the strength we need to do what is needed and he will give us the materials.” It’s not unusual, Assad said, for the tiny church to spend its rent money to help someone in need, then find a check to cover the bills. “When we get a call, someone says there’s a project and we need you, they all show up,” he said of his membership. “They either show up with their muscles or they show up with a check. Either one works for us.” In North Hollywood, the San Fernando Valley Rescue Mission plants its rotating homeless shelter once a month at Temple Adat Ari El. There, two mission staffers are joined by some 20 temple volunteers who do everything from cooking meals to playing with youngsters who have no place to call home, Rabbi Jonathan Bernhard said. “We very fervently believe in bettering in the world,” Bernhard said. “Part of our task as Jews is to make this world a better place than as we found it.” The temple has made it a goal to help the homeless and work for affordable housing. “It’s not just about doing good deeds, it’s about fulfilling the goal of this congregation,” Bernhard said. “You can go a lot of places to better the world and lots of places to better yourself, but it’s the congregation that allows you to do both.” firstname.lastname@example.org 661-257-5251160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

AN IRISH garden designer has won a gold medal at the world-famous Chelsea Flower Show – and singled out one of his Donegal suppliers for special praise.Paul Martin, from Dundalk, won the top award with his The Garden of Mindful Living focussing on health and healing.It was the designer’s first time on Chelsea’s prestigious main avenue, occupying a prominent spot next to the showground’s famous floral marquee. Paul says he was inspired by his love of far eastern travel and yoga in his creation of the garden.The garden is described as a calm space to reboot after a busy day at work.“A key component of the garden came from Donegal, beautiful stone from McMonagle Stone in Mountcharles,” said Paul today“I am thrilled and delighted to win gold with our first major show garden on the main avenue at Chelsea Flower Show. It’s a great golden morning at Chelsea,” he said. “I want to thank fellow Irishman David Scott and Vestra Wealth who have steadfastly supported us over five years.”Over the past two decades, Mr Martin has received nine gold and three “Best in Show” awards in Bloom in the Park, Royal Dublin Society, RHS Hampton Court Flower Show and Singapore Garden Festival.Paul was presented with his medal this morning.
