KINGSTON, Jamaica (CMC): A groin injury has put Pakistan seamer Hasan Ali in doubt for the opening Test of the three-match series against West Indies bowling which starts tomorrow. The 23-year-old, who is yet to make his Test debut, picked up the injury during last weekend’s three-day four game against the WICB President’s XI and is yet to recover. The Pakistan Cricket Board said the player would undergo rehabilitation in an attempt to return to full fitness quickly. “On clinical assessment, there is strain to one of his abductor muscles. He will undergo progressive rehabilitation to regain strength in the groin,” the PCB statement said. Ali was expected to be a shoo-in for the first Test after impressive performances in the preceding limited overs series. He was especially outstanding in the opening one-dayer with a five-wicket haul. The right-armer sent down 27 overs in the first innings of the tour game but did not bowl in the President’s XI second innings. He has taken 29 wickets in 16 one-dayers and 10 wickets in seven Twenty20 Internationals.
Students of the Gabriel L. Dennis Foreign Service Institute at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs are requesting an updated library that would help keep them informed.The students’ request was raised during the time of their recently held election which bought into power Roger T. Suah as president; Paula L. Mcborough as vice president, Julius Kanubah as secretary general; Deddeh Tokpah as financial secretary; Theresa N. Perwehn as Treasure and Alfreda Sambola Tozay as Chaplain.The election chairman, Alfred W. Nyanaso, said in an interview that students raised concerns during the campaign about having the needed books on hand for their use.“Although there are books in the library, it needs to be upgraded with the latest books to help students have access to recent information,” Mr. Nyanaso said.In addition to the need for books, Mr. Nyanaso said students are also concerned about the relationship existing between the Foreign Service Institute and the Ministry of Internal Affairs; the relationship between the Foreign Service Institute and Liberian diplomats abroad, and between the Institute and foreign diplomats serving in Liberia.Speaking to the Daily Observer in an interview on Sunday, April 6, the president-elect, Roger T. Suah, said while there are books in the library, they still lack books published by Liberian writers about the country’ foreign service.He said because of the lack of Liberian written textbooks, they do not have much information on Liberian Foreign Service.He noted that as he and his co-workers take the leadership position, they would consult with the entire student body to identify challenges in the institution and embark on finding solutions to solve them.On the issue of relationships, the newly elected Foreign Service Institute’s president said he would strategize means to ask administration to bring in foreign mission guests serving in Liberia to have lecture series with the students.He said this would help them gain some intellectual capacity to enhance their understanding in diplomatic missions.He further indicated that the career in Foreign Service is not about becoming a rich man, but a matter of passion and serving one’s country.The Foreign Service Institute student election on April 5 was monitored by members of the National Elections Commission.A representative of NEC at the election told the students that the process was important. He said in spite of many people’s education, they still cannot easily understand the processes associated with elections.The representative said having elections in an institution like the Foreign Service is important because it allows people to understand the electoral process from the grass roots.There were 43 students that registered to partake in the election, while 41 cast ballots.Conductors of the election praised the process and said students exercised maturity at all levels without commotion or discontentment over results.Gabriel L. Dennis of the Foreign Service Institute is in a post graduate program in the Foreign Ministry that trains Liberians in Foreign Service and diplomacy.Enrollment requires that a person obtains his/her first university degree, receives police clearance and undergoes three testing sessions (multiple choice, essay and a face to face interview) before admission based on the result.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)

While Conservation Officers responded to 32 abandoned campfires in the Southeast Fire Centre, there were none recorded in the Prince George Fire Centre.When asked if there were any abandoned fires, Fire Information Officer Amanda Reynolds said they didn’t have any.“We did not. We were relatively low numbers wise. We really appreciate the public making sure campfires are out, properly extinguished.”- Advertisement -While the campfire situation was good over the long weekend, the Wildfire Service says that there were 10 new fire starts over the weekend, 9 of which are believed to have been started by lightning.

Nervous fans back home might frown at the choice since England are playing nowhere near Saint Petersburg, Russia’s so-called northern capital.Their three group stage matches will take Harry Kane and his teammates from the Volga River to the edge of Poland, making a total of 6,400 kilometres (4,000 miles) of back and forth travel.England will play in Volgograd against Tunisia on June 18, in Nizhny Novgorod against Panama on June 24, and in Kaliningrad against Belgium on June 30.But coach Gareth Southgate has decided that peace and quiet on the Gulf of Finland was what his men needed most.“We want that environment where the players are relaxed,” he said in October as the FA settled its choice on the outskirts of President Vladimir Putin’s home town.England coach Gareth Southgate has decided peace and quiet is what his men need most even if their hotel is nowhere near where they will be playing © AFP / Olga MALTSEVALocated 27 kilometres (17 miles) northwest of Saint Petersburg, the village England will be calling home is named after Ilya Repin, a realist painter who settled there at the turn of the 20th century.Repino became famous for its wooden country houses favoured by Russian artists, intellectuals and nobles, before being transformed into a Soviet rest home for workers and children.These traces of history are still visible today: by the understated four-floor hotel stand quaint tsarist-era cottages and an imposing concrete sanatorium built by the communists.The feel of Repino is decidedly serene and opportunities for players to go out on the town — repeating the fabled exploits of Paul Gascoigne — will be rare.“Our hotel is for lovers of silence,” said manager Tatyana Zubochenko.It is a place to focus the minds of the English, whose 1966 World Cup win on home soil has never been repeated and who enter the June 14-July 15 tournament as long shots despite being the so-called “home” of the beautiful game.– Russian judokas stayed –Built in 2011, the hotel has 105 rooms with pleasant views of the surrounding forest and traditional Russian rugs overlaying the carpet of the more upscale suites.A no-frills “Standard” room with two beige armchairs and a TV screen the size of a laptop computer is offered for $145 (115 euros), while a “Family” room with a balcony and a couch runs up to $240.The four-star ForRestMix Club Sport and Relax hotel where England will be staying has four restaurants, a “Fito Bar,” a 25-metre pool and a fairly modern gym © AFP / Olga MALTSEVANormally able to accommodate 200 people, it has four restaurants, a “Fito Bar” offering fruit and herbal tea, a 25-metre pool and a fairly modern gym.“We already have experience accommodating athletes,” manager Zubochenko said. “We also hosted (the Russian) Olympic judo team” as they prepared for the 2016 Rio Games.The training ground is seven kilometres away in Zelenogorsk, which can be reached by bus in about 15 minutes.“The location is very convenient,” said Zubochenko. “The training ground is nearby, the city centre is not far and we are in the woods.”But travel might frazzle the Three Lions’ nerves.Simply getting to and from Saint Petersburg’s Pulkovo Airport is a hassle, requiring the team to cross the congested city of four million people, where traffic jams are a constant fixture.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000The four-star ForRestMix Club Sport and Relax — an affordable option for Russians looking to get away from it all — offers little entertainment but plenty of sleep © AFP / Olga MALTSEVAREPINO, Russian Federation, Mar 4 – England’s World Cup squad will seclude themselves in a modest hotel in the woods near Saint Petersburg, opting for the calm of a history-steeped village rather than a city closer to their group matches.The four-star ForRestMix Club Sport and Relax — an affordable option for Russians looking to get away from it all — offers little entertainment but plenty of sleep.
