SA’s deVilliers to play for Barbados Tridents

first_imgBRIDGETOWN, Barbados (CMC): South Africa’s super star AB deVilliers is set for his first stint in the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) after signing to play for Barbados Tridents, officials announced yesterday. The South African Test and ODI captain says he is excited about the prospects of playing in the CPL expected to take place in July. The announcement comes days after Barbados Tridents was purchased for a reported franchise fee of US$2 million by Dr Vijay Mallya, owner of the Royal Challengers Bangalore franchise in the Indian Premier League which de Villiers plays for. “Barbados is one of the most beautiful places in the world, and I am honoured to have been invited to join the Tridents,” said de Villiers. “The CPL has been growing each year, and I’m pleased that this year the league fits so neatly within the Proteas’ international schedule”. De Villiers’ participation in CPL 2016 is not expected to clash with any of South Africa’s international fixtures. The CPL is expected to be played during dates to be announced in July soon after South Africa’s campaign in a tri-series in the West Indies in June, where Australia are the third team. “I’ve had a careful look at my schedule and am looking forward to the next few months. For players in my position, it is important to find a balance between playing international cricket and participating in the various T20 leagues around the world,” said de Villiers. “I remain absolutely committed to international cricket but, this year, it just so happens I can play in the CPL as well; in contrast, for example, I have declined offers to play in the Big Bash League in Australia because it clashes with our home series against Sri Lanka.”last_img read more

(AP Photo/Sue Ogrocki)OKLAHOMA CITY — With all the excitement about the Oklahoma City Thunder’s new Big Three this season, Steven Adams had become a bit of an afterthought.Not anymore. The 7-foot center had 20 points and nine rebounds to support Russell Westbrook’s triple-double, and the Thunder defeated the Utah Jazz 100-94 on Tuesday night.ADVERTISEMENT The Thunder have won three straight, and Adams’ offensive play has been critical. During the streak, he has averaged 22 points and 8.3 rebounds and made 28 of 34 shots from the field.“That’s good, mate,” the New Zealander said. “Good stuff.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSRedemption is sweet for Ginebra, Scottie ThompsonSPORTSMayweather beats Pacquiao, Canelo for ‘Fighter of the Decade’SPORTSBrian Heruela arrival bolsters Phoenix backcourt, defenseThe two new stars did their parts, too — Paul George scored 11 of his 21 points in the fourth quarter and Carmelo Anthony added 14 points and eight rebounds. They also opened things up for Adams, and now, teams have been forced to decide whether to focus on Adams or on George and Anthony, two of the league’s most capable scorers.“The reason why Steven is doing what he’s going is because of Carmelo Anthony and Paul George,” Thunder coach Billy Donovan said. “When we’re patient on offense, Steven’s going to get those opportunities. Steven’s not doing really anything different from maybe he’s done in the past.” Oklahoma City cut the deficit to six points early in the final period before Westbrook re-entered the game after a brief rest. The Thunder finally took the lead on a layup by Westbrook with about four minutes remaining.Adams didn’t put up big numbers late in the game, but he made a critical tip-in with 43.2 seconds left to put the Thunder up five.Oklahoma City’s defense — statistically one of the league’s best — tightened up late in the game. Utah shot 30 percent in the fourth quarter.“(Andre) Roberson’s one of the best defenders in the league, Paul George is one of the best defenders in the league. Russell Westbrook turned it up defensively, and that’s tough,” Snyder said.The Thunder now have won three straight close games after making a habit of losing them.“We stayed with it,” Westbrook said. “Teams are going to make runs. It’s about what you do when you get hit in the mouth. We learned our lesson, and we know that we have to continue to fight, and we did that tonight.”TIP-INSJazz: Starters shot 13 for 25 in the first half, but reserves went 3 for 14. … Shot 60 percent in the third quarter. … Were outrebounded 46-35.Thunder: Westbrook and Anthony combined to make just 3 of 13 shots in the first half. … Made 1 of 9 3-pointers in the first half and 4 of 18 overall. … Made 12 of 21 shots in the fourth quarter. … Westbrook was issued a technical foul in the third quarter.STAT LINESGeorge and Anthony combined to score 19 of their 35 points in the fourth quarter. Westbrook had six points, five rebounds and four assists in the final period.HE SAID ITDonovan, on how the Thunder played in the first half: “We played hurried, we played rushed, we played like we were down by 20 points with five minutes to go in the game. That’s the way we played the first half. Without question, from start to finish, I thought our defense gave us a chance tonight. We were very lucky in my opinion to only be down eight at the half. We could’ve been down drastically more.”UP NEXT Margot Robbie talks about filming ‘Bombshell’s’ disturbing sexual harassment scene Jo Koy: My brain always wants to think funny View comments Jake says relationship with Shaina ‘goes beyond physical attraction’ LATEST STORIES Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

(AP Photo/Nick Wass, File)SAN CRISTOBAL DE LA LAGUNA, Spain — Veterans Sue Bird and Diana Taurasi each had one of their best WNBA seasons.Both players credit changing the way they take care of their bodies off the court for their successes on it. Eating healthier, getting more rest and doing more stretching has helped. Also, the USA Basketball mainstays are only playing in the WNBA during the summer and not overseas in the offseason.ADVERTISEMENT Tim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crown Dawn Staley played with Bird and Taurasi on a few Olympic and World Cup teams. Now she is coaching them on the U.S. national team.“You’re looking at iconic figures in our sport,” Staley said. “We see what they’ve done on the court. The sacrifices they’ve added to their lifestyle should be commended and what younger players should implement in their lives.“Am I amazed? Not at all. I’ve seen them grow up. First-time Olympian, first-time World Cup participants, I knew back then. The basketball part of it will take them a long way. What they’ve added to their diets and lifestyles, they’ve already beaten Mother Time to be able to play at a high level today.”Bird and Taurasi deflect questions about retirement and who can blame them. Bird helped Seattle win its third WNBA title. Taurasi had Phoenix within a game of reaching the championship round before falling to her friend’s team.Neither hesitated about joining USA Basketball again. Bird is playing in a record fifth World Cup and Taurasi in her fourth. Both know they don’t have to do much heavy lifting for the U.S.“I think that’s one thing about USA Basketball that’s nice, is that the load is going to be distributed evenly. Everyone has a little piece,” Taurasi said. “Literally, I come down, pass the ball to the best post players in the world and wait for an open 3. That’s my job for USA Basketball for 12 years. I’m really content with that.”Asked if she could do it another 12 years, Taurasi smiled and said, “Why not?”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew Will you be the first P16 Billion Powerball jackpot winner from the Philippines?

Norway-Guyana deal still on the table – Harmon

first_img…US$14M to be released for alternative projectsBy Samuel SukhnandanThe innovative forest conservation for money Norway-Guyana deal is “well and alive”, but will be redirected to a number of different viable projects, Minister of State, Joseph Harmon told the National Assembly on Thursday while making his contributions to the 2018 National Budget debate.Harmon announced that the Kingdom of Norway has agreed to release US$14 million for a Sustainable Land Development and Management Project. In additionMinister of State, Joseph Harmonto that, some US$17 million will be released for several Information and Communications Technology (ICT) projects, while funding for the Amerindian Fund and Amerindian Land Titling project is ongoing.“Financial delivery on projects added between May 2015 and 2017 has improved to 35 per cent in just half term and this Government expects to reach more than 60 per cent delivery by the end of 2018,” Harmon told the National Assembly while providing an update on the facility. According to him, Norway has also extended the Guyana REDD+ Investment Fund (GRIF) Trustee Account that ended in December 2016 to December 2021. He said 285 grants and 120 loans have been approved under the Micro and Small Enterprise Project as against the previous two-year figures.The release of these funds forms part of the US$80 million, which was earmarked for the Amaila Falls Hydro Project. However, the Government has made its intention known that it does not wish to proceed with it. Instead, the funds will now be channelled to a number of different ‘clean energy’ initiatives.Harmon reminded that these considerations emanated from a December meeting in Paris, among delegations from Norway and Guyana and representatives from the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB). It was at that meeting that Guyana’s position was reiterated; that it cannot support the Amaila project.He noted that this was mainly on account of a number of unresolved issues regarding the viability of the venture and concerns on the least cost of the project, which was started under the People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) Government. The Government has said too that it did not intent to attract any debt.When the new Government took office in 2015, it decided to review the feasibility of proceeding with the project with the intention of creating a Green State Development Strategy (GSDS) and a Renewable Energy Transition Roadmap, to add to the joint concept of the Guyana-Norway concept.“Mr Speaker, the importance of the Norway Agreement to the advancement of Guyana’s green agenda cannot be overemphasised and as a result, I have, as recently as yesterday (December 6, 2017), sent a letter to the Honourable Minister of the Environment of the Kingdom of Norway, Mr Vidar Helgesen requesting his consideration for a meeting of Environment Ministers of Guyana and Norway,” he told the House.The State Minister noted that the aim of the meeting was to further discuss how the partnership between the two countries could continue to yield benefits. He noted that Guyana has already advanced work on all aspects of the joint concept notes, which include the Voluntary Partnership Agreement (VPA) and the European Union Forest Law Enforcement, Governance and Trade (EU-FLEGT).HydropowerIn addressing the issue of hydropower, Harmon said that it would form part of Guyana’s renewable energy mix which includes solar, wind, biomass, and bagasse. He said the Government also remained committed to delivering close to 100 per cent renewable energy by 2025.The Minister said based on the request from Norway, it was agreed that an independent assessment be conducted on the Amaila Falls Hydro Electricity Project by the firm Norconsult. The report of that assessment produced evidence that the configuration of the project was not fit.“The evidence from the Norconsult Report indicates the reason why we need an energy mix. Amaila is no silver bullet. The focus is hydropower generation. Hence, the consideration of the options for hydropower and there are equally competitive alternative hydropower solutions.”The Minister also stated that Norway would give support to the Guyana Power Light (GPL) for its efforts to improve energy efficiency, as this overall is a low-carbon initiative and could get GPL to qualify for monies from the GRIF. The GRIF goes back to an agreement signed in November 2009, in which Norway agreed to provide Guyana with up to US$250 million by 2015, in performance-based payments for avoided deforestation in support of Guyana’s Low Carbon Development Strategy (LCDS).The Government has been pursuing a national energy policy and refining the Renewable Energy Transition Roadmap. “In the meantime, it makes sense to use our natural resource – natural gas, coming on stream than to flare it; natural gas that uses modern efficient plants emits 50-60 per cent less carbon into the atmosphere than other fossil fuels such as oil. So, hydropower generation is alive and we are committed to delivering such solution to the nation,” Harmon added.Since the agreement was signed, Guyana has earned US$190 million. Some US$69.8 million had been transferred to the GRIF while US$80 million was transferred to the IDB for the Amaila project.Norway had strongly supported the Amaila project, which was the flagship project of the previous PPP/C Administration’s LCDS and was envisioned to deliver a steady source of affordable, reliable, clean and renewable energy. The project was supposed to eliminate at least 92 per cent of Guyana’s energy-related greenhouse gas emissions and it was said that this would likely make Guyana the world’s number one user of renewable energy by 2017.last_img read more

Pic by Owen Clarke.The object had a warning written on the side of it telling anyone who found it not to handle it and to contact either the coastguard or the military. The man, who was walking on the south-side of the island close to its lighthouse, contacted the local coastguard unit who in turn contacted the army.An army air corps helicopter containing members of the Explosives Ordinance Disposal unit was dispatched to the island today.Members of the team due a hole, surrounded it with sandbags and then made the devise safe using a controlled explosion.Three members of the air corps along with two members of the local coastguard unit took part in the operation. The area is cordoned off by the coastguard.The devise was identified as a ‘marine marker’ which contains both explosives and phosphorous and could have caused injury if it had detonated.King of Tory Island Patsy Dan Rodgers told Donegal Daily said he is thankful none of the children form the population of about 150 on the island cam across the device which contained phosphorous.“I’m so glad the army were called and the devise was disposed of properly.
