Bel Air secure first innings points over UG

first_imgThe University of Guyana (UG) ended day one of their Noble House Seafoods second-division, two-day contest against Bel Air Rubis on 14-1, trailing by 56 runs batting a second time at the Queen’s College ground. The students surrendered first innings points.  The day began with UG winning the toss and electing to bat but, after an encouraging start, were skittled out for 139 inside 30 overs after receiving a useful start from openers Yogendra Singh (36) and Melroy Stephenson (28). The pair added 63 runs, however, they were left stuttering as off-spinner Arvin Gainda grabbed 6-26 – his first five-wicket haul at the GCA level – to bring his side back in the contest as only Anthony Fredericks (23) and  Ershaad Alli (20) provided further resistance. Bel Air’s Keon Franklin, Arvin Gainda and Krishan Deosarran gave their side the upper hand against UG. Bel Air in their first innings response were  dismissed for 209 in 51.2 overs, securing first innings points and a lead of 70 runs. Major contributions came from opener Keon Franklin who struck seven fours and three sixes in a fine knock of 73.   He got support from former national under – 19 batsman Krishan Deosarran (42) who missed out on a well-deserved half-century.  Left-arm spinner Damion Vantull grabbed 5-44 to end as the pick of the bowlers for UG.  Meanwhile, over at Everest, the host outplayed Diplomats on the opening day and secured first-innings points on the back of a stellar bowling performance from former national youth player Javed Rasheed.  Everest batting first, posted 159 before being dismissed with Ushardev Balgobin blasting 74. He got support from Richie Looknauth (34) and Dwayne Adams (24).   Mortimer King (3-20) and Nigel Simpson (3-20) shared six wickets between them for the visitors who were shot out for 78 in 28 overs with Rasheed bagging 8-12 from 7.4 over. Everest batting a second time are 7-1 heading into the final day.last_img read more

What Life Was Like in 1999, the Last (and Only) Time the Atlanta Falcons Played in a Super Bowl

first_img Related efks/iStock/Thinkstock(HOUSTON) — The tales of the two teams playing in Sunday’s Super Bowl could not be more different.When the Atlanta Falcons defeated the Green Bay Packers in the NFC championship two weeks ago, they secured a bid to their second-ever trip to the Super Bowl in its 51-year history.On the other side, the New England Patriots have established themselves as an elite, powerhouse program. The trip to Houston marks a record ninth trip to the Super Bowl and a chance for Patriots head coach Bill Belichick and star quarterback Tom Brady to win their fifth championship together.The Falcons, however, have never taken home a Lombardi Trophy. They lost to the Denver Broncos 34-19 in Super Bowl 33 nearly 20 years ago.This is what life was like in 1999, the last time the Falcons played in a Super Bowl:Super Bowl XXXIII: Jan. 31, 1999The 33rd Super Bowl was played at Miami’s Pro-Player Stadium, now called Hard Rock Stadium. Cher sang the national anthem.The halftime show included Gloria Estefan, Stevie Wonder and Big Bad Voodoo Daddy.Denver won the game, which was the last-ever played by MVP quarterback John Elway, who would later announce his retirement before the start of the next season.Y2K Fears Ran RampantFears that a digital bug nicknamed Y2K would wreak havoc on computing systems topped headlines leading up to the year 2000.Until the 1990s, many early computer programs were designed to abbreviate four-digit years to two digits to save memory space, allowing computers to recognize “99” as the year “1999.” People cautioned that in the New Year, computers would be unable to recognize “00” as “2000” and would interpret it to mean “1900,” according to Britannica.com.A story published in the Los Angeles Times Jan. 21, 1999, said that city agencies were “still struggling to upgrade computers to handle the year 2000 problem.”At the time, several city departments were assigning themselves a “C or D in grading their preparations,” the article read.“I believe there is the possibility of some disruptions here and there,” the city’s assistant general manager said at the time.Turns out Y2K didn’t present much of a problem at all.Cost of LivingAverage cost of a gallon of regular gas: $1.22Average cost of new car: $21,050U.S. postage stamp: 33 centsA dozen eggs: 89 centsAverage U.S. home price: $79,384’Family Guy’ Debuted After the GameIt’s hard to imagine life without the Griffins, but the first time Peter Griffin graced the small screen was Jan. 31, 1999, after Super Bowl 33 ended.In the pilot, titled “Death Has a Shadow,” Peter loses his job after drinking too much and falling asleep at work. He then signs up for welfare to keep his wife, Lois, from finding out.When Peter is mistakenly sent a check for more $150,000, he dumps the cash from a blimp at the Super Bowl and gets arrested before his family finds a way to bail him out.It pays off to follow the most-television event every year. The “Family Guy” pilot garnered 22 million viewers that night.Pop Culture: A Pop Princess Ruled the AirwavesAfter Britney Spears’ first album, “… Baby One More Time,” debuted in the fall of 1998, and the single by the same name climbed its way to the top of the Billboard Top 100 chart in the new year and stayed there for two consecutive weeks. Both the album and single were No. 1 when Super Bowl 33 aired.The highest-ranking television show for the 1998-99 season was “ER,” followed by “Friends” and “Frasier.”No. 1 at the box office was quintessential teen romance movie “She’s All That,” starring Freddie Prinze Jr. and Rachael Leigh Cook.Instead of watching the game, kids were playing with their Nintendo Game Boy Color and Furbies, both of which were among the most-sought-after toys for Christmas the month before.What’s old is sometimes new again. By the end of the 1990s, the extreme trends — bright-colored prints, overalls and jelly sandals — began to die down. What was left were the staples, such as lingerie-inspired slip dresses, choker necklaces and denim dresses, which have circulated back in style.Advancing Technology and Smartphones Had Not Yet Changed LivesPeople who attended Super Bowl 33 actually watched the game because smartphones and the plethora of apps they offer were not yet around.So instead of being distracted by taking selfies and checking how many “likes” they got on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat, people were probably devoting a much larger percentage of their focus to the gridiron.Most Americans didn’t even have cellphones, yet. There were only about 86 million cellphone subscribers in the United States in 1999, compared to more than 300 million today.After its release in 1998, the Nokia 6210 was among the bestselling cellphones. It was preloaded with everyone’s favorite — and only — game: Snake.Apple wouldn’t debut the iPod until 2001, so portable CD players were still being used for on-the-go music.Apple wouldn’t release the iPod until 2001, so music lovers were forced to carry around portable CD players for on-the-go listening. The days of lugging around heavy zip-up books full of CDs are not missed.Copyright © 2017, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.Powered by WPeMaticolast_img read more

Early Week 12: The Ravens control their own destiny … Again

first_imgPhoto by: Tyler Palmer(HardShell Films)The Ravens are 5-5 heading into week 12 and have full control of their playoff destiny. Sounds familiar?That was the same exact scenario from last season when the Ravens were headed into a division matchup against the Cincinatti Bengals. The Ravens would win three of their next four before heading into a Christmas day, win or go home match up against the Steelers. I wont go into detail about that game because the very thought of it may cause nausea. But yet again here we are. The Ravens have a much easier remaining schedule on paper than last season with only one opponent currently in the playoffs if they were to start today. Take a wild guess of who that opponent is….that’s right the Pittsburgh Steelers in a week 14 night game in Pittsburgh. While that for sure will be a big game, the Ravens have been in this situation too many times to know they can not look three games ahead. The first thing is to take care of business at home on Monday night against the Texans.It’s the second week in a row the Ravens are playing a team who has lost their starting quarterback to injury. The Texans won last week against the Cardinals but mostly behind the performance of their running back Donta Foreman, who tore his achillies late in the fourth quarter. Once again everything is looking favorable for the Ravens and they will have to play wit the same tenacity they did last week against the Packers. The Texans have enough weapons to pull off a upset if the Ravens let them hang around for too long.I have the Ravens pulling this one out 20-10 behind another strong game from the defense. Two interceptions for Eric Weddle and 2 sacks for T-Sizzle.Please follow and like us:last_img read more

Review: Helen Mirren astonishing in splendid ‘The Audience’

first_imgNEW YORK | Every week, whenever possible, two of the most important people on the planet chat for about 20 minutes. It is a meeting held in complete secret.The conversations between the United Kingdom’s monarch and the prime minister take place in a room in Buckingham Palace with no one else present and no official records taken.What do they talk about? How do they act? We may never know, and that’s where playwright Peter Morgan enters with his “Audience,” a moving and very human play about the costs of power.This image released by Boneau/Bryan-Brown shows Helen Mirren, left, and Elizabeth Teeter in a scene from “The Audience,” in New York. (AP Photo/Boneau/Bryan-Brown, Joan Marcus)The British import opened Sunday at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre with unarguably its most important ingredient intact: Helen Mirren as Queen Elizabeth II.Mirren, who is becoming something of an expert on playing English royalty, creates an astonishing portrayal, by turns prickly and chummy, regal and regular, insecure and temperamental. She nails the fussiness and strange high-pitched voice but also reveals a frustrated yet resigned monarch quietly pining for a different life. Her quick changes often happen onstage with a new outfit and wig.The Broadway version of the play has some actors from its West End run, but many are American, including Judith Ivey as Margaret Thatcher with an intimidating helmet of hair and Dylan Baker as an insecure John Major. Thankfully, Geoffrey Beevers as the queen’s right-hand man is back at his fussy, imperial best.The playwright has changed a few things, including tweaking the David Cameron meeting and adding a whole new Tony Blair chat that makes the play even more cohesive, making explicit the echoes between the 1956 Suez Crisis and the Iraq War.The play plays with time as Morgan jumps back and forth over six decades to highlight meetings with eight prime ministers, with Mirren switching from age 25 with Churchill (a superb Dakin Matthews) to today’s PM, David Cameron (Rufus Wright, who also plays Blair).The more things change, the more they stay the same for this queen. “I suppose that’s what happens if you stick round long enough. The same people, the same ideas come round again and again. Wearing a different colored tie,” the queen quips.Elizabeth II plays analyst and confessor to them all, listening to their dirty laundry and various illnesses, all the while joking about herself as “a tribal leader in an exotic costume” or “a postage stamp with a pulse.”The portrait of the queen that emerges is a thrifty woman, an ardent pacifist and even perhaps a closet leftie. She seems happiest romping with her dogs in Scotland and the best scene is set there, with both her and prime minister Harold Wilson (a winning Richard McCabe), and her trading barbs. (He teases her about her German roots).Morgan also charts time with the clever use of telephones. Keep an eye out as telegrams and then landlines evolve into the use of a mobile phone the size of a brick (in the Thatcher era) to a snazzy new modern-day Samsung with the maddening ringtone of “Thrift Shop.”The queen is haunted by her 11-year-old self who has never liked the drudgery of Buckingham Palace, and the play at these times threatens to move into melodrama, but director Stephen Daldry makes the will-be-queen and the established queen — who you may notice both rock on their toes — work well in the same scene. A pair of real Corgis sprinting across the stage will also draw oohs and ahhs.Designer Bob Crowley, known for his big works like “Aladdin” and “Mary Poppins,” shows off his more minimal — yet no less luxurious side — here, with a pair of elegant yellow armchairs and a backdrop of pillars and never-ending rooms. He also takes on the costumes, which range from a stunning, jewel-studded gown to bespoke three-piece suits.But perhaps the best stitching is from Morgan, who nimbly fits in exposition and big swaths of history into a coherent and touching portrait of power and majesty. And, with Mirren, even ardent anti-monarchists will clap.Online:https://theaudiencebroadway.comMark Kennedy is at https://twitter.com/KennedyTwitslast_img read more

LaLiga: MatchDay 17: Barcelona wants to finish the year as table toppers

Powered by Firework LEADERS BARÇA LOOK TO STAY AHEAD OF THE CHASING PACK IN THE FINAL LALIGA SANTANDER WEEKEND OF 2018Advertisement The last LaLiga Santander weekend of 2018 sees Barcelona looking to stay ahead of chasing Atletico Madrid and Sevilla, with opportunities also for teams towards the bottom to send their fans happily into the winter break.Leaders Barça are at home to Celta on Saturday, with five goals in his last two LaLiga games having pushed blaugrana captain Lionel Messi to the top of the league goal scoring charts. Celta are unbeaten in their last three games under new coach Miguel Cardoso and have won one and drawn another of their last four LaLiga visits to the Camp Nou.Advertisement Second-placed Atletico de Madrid are too in action on Saturday as they host Espanyol, with red-hot Antoine Griezmann and company out for three points which would continue their LaLiga-leading home record so far. Espanyol are something of a ‘bogey’ side for Simeone’s men however, having won both their most recent LaLiga meetings including a 2-0 victory for the Catalans at the Wanda Metropolitano last season.Third-placed Sevilla will also aim to stay right in the mix at the top when they visit Leganes on Sunday. A tight game is likely as Pablo Machin’s side have drawn their last three on the road, while in-form ‘Lega’ are now unbeaten in their last six league outings.Advertisement The weekend this time begins early on Friday with Girona hosting Getafe at Montilivi in a meeting of two teams who have both had excellent 2018s and will want a result to stay in the top half over the break. Friday’s late game is a Basque derby which sees Real Sociedad host Alaves. The visitors from Vitoria will be looking for a first LaLiga Santander win at Anoeta in over a decade.Saturday will see a resurgent Real Betis aiming for a fourth straight LaLiga victory to ensure they spend the winter break in fifth spot, although visitorsEibar will remember their 4-0 victory at the Estadio Benito Villamarin just two years’ back.The late game on Saturday sees new Athletic Club coach Gaizka Garitano look to stretch his unbeaten run to three games. Visitors Real Valladolidtravel to San Mames aiming for a win which would be an excellent end to a great last 12 months for the Castilian club.Sunday’s matches starts with Valencia looking to end the year on a high at Mestalla against bottom team Huesca, whose performances have improved in recent weeks. The final LaLiga Santander game of 2018 has Rayo Vallecano aiming for a second straight win at their Estadio de Vallecas, but visitors Levante can go into the winter break having stretched their unbeaten away run to six games.Real Madrid and Villarreal are not in LaLiga action this weekend, with the reigning Champions League holders in Abu Dhabi defending their Club World Cup trophy. Their meeting will now be LaLiga Santander’s first action of 2019, at Villarreal’s Estadio de la Ceramica on Thursday January 3rd. Advertisementlast_img read more

Did I hear double standards?

first_imgDear Editor,It is ironic that the conduct of the Attorney-General and Minister of Legal Affairs in Justice Holder’s Court took place during the hearing of the suspension of the holder of an independent constitutional office by the President acting on the advice of his next in command, Prime Minister Moses Nagamoottoo.It is public knowledge that the President allegedly called in Carvil Duncan, the Chairman of the Public Service Commission, a member of the Judicial Service Commission and the Police Service Commission. He admitted demanding his resignation from these commissions, asserting at the same time that he did not want blood spilled upon his carpet.It is unknown if Justice Holder’s Court is fitted with carpet but the accusations/complaints made by him and the Attorney-General and Minister of Legal Affairs seem to have left one of them with a bloodied nose.Seeking the intervention of the President has certainly exposed the Judiciary as a whole as a cowering arm of the State in violation of the concept of the separation of powers.The judiciary is supposed to be an independent arm of the State and the suspension of an office Holder, i.e. Duncan, may explain justly the action of the Chancellor (ag). She may be excused for thinking that if he can be suspended she can suffer the same fate if the judges were to sanction the Attorney General and Minister of Legal Affairs.The final irony is that the PPP/C Government, alleged to be guilty of executive lawlessness by the APNU/AFC in opposition, fined a senior Minister who was also an Executive Member of his party. Did I hear double standards?Sincerely,Dr Roger Luncheonlast_img read more
