A few games later, Williams received another warning, this time for smashing her racket, and that second violation automatically cost her a point. Eventually, Williams called Ramos “a thief,” drawing a third violation, this one for “verbal abuse,” which cost her a game. Williams was fined a total of $17,000 the next day, including $4,000 for coaching, which is not allowed in Grand Slam matches.The WTA does allow coaching during women’s matches at other tournaments. The tour’s CEO, Steve Simon, said in the aftermath of the U.S. Open final that it “should be allowed across the sport.”The sport’s various governing bodies and Grand Slam tournaments have been looking at the issue, with some sounding more willing than others to consider permitting coaching. Wimbledon, for example, has made clear that it is “fundamentally opposed to any form of coaching during a match.”Banning coaching, Mouratoglou wrote Thursday, “almost makes it look as if it had to be hidden, or as if it was shameful.”He called the issue “symptomatic of the confrontation between two ways of thinking: The conservative, traditionalist way and the modern, progressive way.”ADVERTISEMENT Tim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crown Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew FILE – In this Aug. 31, 2018, file photo, Serena Williams walks on a practice court with her coach, Patrick Mouratoglou, during the third round of the U.S. Open tennis tournament, in New York.

Besides, Mouratoglou said, “It is a very basic truth that the vast majority of tennis coaches are actually coaching on court, despite the rules. Look at how many times players look towards their boxes during a match. Some do it after every single point.”That is true.Those who argue against in-match coaching — and believe rules against it should be enforced more rigidly — say that lessens the individual, go-it-alone nature of tennis.Mouratoglou thinks part of the appeal of allowing coaching is that it would help get viewers “emotionally involved.”“You want spectators and TV viewers to have opinions about the players — and the coaches — and to know who they like and don’t like. Watching the interactions between players and coaches is a very good way of achieving this,” he wrote.Mouratoglou added: “Moreover, emotions run high when coaches talk to their players during matches. Sometimes the players don’t like to hear what their coaches are saying, but this all adds to the drama, which creates engagement on social media.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Pacman: Broner first, Mayweather later Nadine Lustre’s phone stolen in Brazil View comments Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

Cassava Bacteria Blight Disease (CBB)

first_imgCassava Bacterial Blight disease (CBB) is caused by a bacteria called Xanothomas axonopodis pv. manihotis.It infests the internal parts of cassava leaves and stems beginning at the tiny lesions formed in-between the leaf veins.CBB resemble small roundish water-soaked dead spots that usually start as scattered dots with angular edges. The lesions or spots later merged into larger patches completely killing the cassava leaf.MODE OF TRANSMISSION AND CONTROLThe main source of CBB is cassava plants already infested. This bacterium enters cassava plants through wounds and scratches sustained on stems and leaves. When multiply into large colonies it spreads to other cassava crops.If the crop is not destroy after root harvest, dead cassava stems and leaves with the bacterium serve as reservoir for the disease. The disease is spread naturally by raindrops which splash the bacterium from infected plants onto healthy plants. When insects for example grasshoppersfeed on disease cassava plant they become contaminated with the bacterium and spread it to healthy cassava plants as well.Farm tools that are used to cut infected cassava plants should be cleaned after use to prevent the bacterium spreading to other plants.All plants suspected of the CBB should be rogued and completely destroyed.SYMPTOMSVisible signs of CBB start from the leaf blade and migrate toward the petiole making the leaves brownish when severed. Othersigns of CBB includes the appearance of brown gum stains on the leafs, petioles and stems of infested cassava plants.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Successful mental health workshop held at Suddie

first_imgDear Editor,As mental health continues to be a prime issue of concern in Guyana, particularly the mental health of men, the Guyana Foundation continues in its quest not only to talk about the problem, but also to be a driving force in the promotion of good mental health and holistic wellness for all Guyanese.In the year 2017, we commenced a programme — in partnership with the Guyana Police Force, through the Richard Fickal Police College — of training new recruits in the area of mental health.On February 27th and 28th, 2018, staff and volunteers of the Guyana Foundation Sunrise Center conducted a two-day workshop at the Police College at Suddie on the Essequibo Coast. The workshop took the form of group discussions, role plays, introspection exercises, and games, all with the objective of having a better understanding of mental health, primarily the mental health of men. The aspiring police officers participated fully in all of the activities, wherein many of them shared some of their own personal struggles not only as those relate to mental health, but also relative to achieving personal success.The understated are some of the topics covered: understanding self; the benefits of knowing who you are; identifying personal strengths, weaknesses and values; factors that shape and build an individual’s self-esteem; what it means to be successful; setting SMART life goals; the valley of blame and shame: how negative life experiences influence the present; understanding cultural norms as they relate to men; understanding mental health; factors that affect an individual’s mental health.Overall, the sessions were a resounding success, as persons took time to share what were some of the points throughout the workshop that resonated with them, and how they intend to apply the knowledge learnt moving forward in their personal lives and career.In her closing remarks to the participants, Manager of the Sunrise Center, Ms. Miriam Hinds, told the young men, “…if you are going to be successful in the road ahead, you first need to deal with those things in your lives that may potentially serve as obstacles to your success. This means that you must be true to who you are, and be honest about your feelings.”She further said, “If you are going to be effective in serving others, then you must also be willing to be served; which means (that) if you recognize that you need help, then get the help that you need, knowing that it will not make you less of a man”.The session ended with participants expressing gratitude to the organization. A follow-up session is slated for March 27th, when the recruits will demonstrate through role play what they would have learnt throughout the two days.Regards,Guyana Foundationlast_img read more

‘Make Science & Tech a Priority’

first_imgIn a speech to the 2015 graduating class of the T.J.R Faulkner College of Science and Technology, the Korean Ambassador accredited to Liberia, Noh Kyu-Duk, suggested that when Liberia prioritizes education, especially in science and technology, it can accelerate its economic development, and therefore, become like his native Korea, a country that invested substantially in education after its civil war in 1953.“During the period of war and restoration, however, education remained the nation’s highest priority,” Ambassador Noh told the graduating class yesterday. Recounting how Korea achieved its economic success story which turned it into one of the “Asian Tigers,” Ambassador Noh said Korea developed a five-year economic plan in 1962. “Korea’s economic development goes back to the year in 1962 when Korea put a first five- year economic plan into action,” he said. “In the 1960s the light industry such as garments and textiles developed rapidly and created momentum for Korea’s economic growth.” According to Ambassador Noh, Korea soon lost its competitive advantage due to wage increases, which could not be sustained, forcing the government to invest heavily in the chemical industry.“Steel was the first heavy industry to be developed,” he explained. “Despite skepticism about the feasibility of such a venture in Korea, the Korean government successfully integrated steel mill in the early 1970s,” he added.He said that paved the way for the advancement of other steel-related industries, such as shipbuilding, automobiles, machinery and construction. However, he said the Korean government saw that without the support of science and technology of its own, the national goal of industrialization and economic development would be nothing but a sand-castle or a mirage. “Against this background, in 1973, the Korea government established the ‘Daedeok Science Town’ (DST) as an engine of enhancing the national competitiveness of high technology,” he said. To the graduates, Ambassador Noh admonished them not to see themselves as others, impressing upon them to develop a plan of action to achieve their goals.“You will never be too late to do anything. Forget too much entertainment and don’t enjoy laziness, but focus on what you can do to improve yourselves,” he told the 189 graduates of the Science College. Similarly, Ms. Anita Tarplah, the valedictorian of the 2015 graduating class of the T.J.R Faulkner College of Science and Technology and also the valedictorian of all 2015 undergraduate students of the University of Liberia, urged her fellow graduates to civically engage, rather than focus on egoistic ideals, prestige, or ambitions of splendor. “As we move into tomorrow, let us hold fast to the words of Frederick Douglass, remembering that, ‘If there is no struggle, there is no progress, and that progress is in our community, in our country, in our world, which can only happen when bright minds like us adopt to become involved,’” Ms. Taplah said. She attributed her success to faith and hard work, adding, “My own education has been blended in faith and hard work. It is not modest as has been mentioned by some.”She emphasized that an effective generation requires the compressive education to make some strong predictions about the future, and recommended that the government make the salary and benefits of hardworking professors attractive so as to enable other professors in the Diaspora to return and join the profession to impact knowledge into the student population of Liberia. For her part, the Dean of the Science College, Dr. Ophelia Weeks, recounted the numerous demonstrations that resulted in the closure of the college for two months, threats by geology students that put faculty safety into question, the Ebola epidemic that ultimately resulted to the closure of the school for six months. “We are a resilient family, and things are getting better,” Dean Weeks said. “Our silver lining in light of these challenges is that on Thursday, December 10, 51 women and 138 men will become alumni of UL’s T.J.R. Faulkner College of Science and Technology, and we are proud of them.”The College of Science and Technology also honored several professors and staff including Zizi Zubah, the College Coordinator; John Y. Flomo, a Physics Lab Demonstrator; Professors Dr. Eugene Shannon and Francis Cooper for their “dedicated services” to the college and the university.Several students with grade point averages (GPA) ranging from 3.28 to 4.00 from the Departments of Biology and Chemistry were honored. They included Anita Taplah, Klon D.C. Hinneh, Alimany S. Donzo, John R. Alpha, Amyleen Y. Maimie, Victor S. Tamba, David N. Worjloh Jr., Lucia L. Paye-Layleh, Swaliho F. Kamara, Titus B.

Seeking wellness together

first_img 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! WESTLAKE VILLAGE — This is a place where they welcome you with smiles and fresh-baked oatmeal cookies, but tell you they’re sorry you had to come at all. It’s a place where Molly Rutschman shares her excitement about the upcoming bloom of her roses, where Sam Grant describes with relish the taste of sushi after months of eating only bland food, where Ross Richardson finds joy in telling the latest news about his pregnant niece. And it’s a place where words like prognosis and incurable are spoken aloud, and where one word in particular binds them together. At The Wellness Community, the word isn’t cancer, but life. “Every morning I wake up, and I look up and say, Thank you,’” said 54-year-old Jeanne DiConti, who is living with intestinal cancer. “You take pleasure in the everyday, in the ordinary.” The high-profile announcements last week that Elizabeth Edwards and Tony Snow were fighting a recurrence of cancer refocused public attention on the fearsome disease — and the determined people fighting similar battles every day. Edwards, wife of presidential candidate John Edwards, revealed she has an incurable form of cancer that has spread from her breast to her bones. Snow, President George W. Bush’s chief spokesman, said his colon cancer had spread to the liver and was also incurable. Among those who attend the weekly support groups at the Wellness Center, there is sorrow for Edwards and Snow, but also hope that their conditions will lead to more research and expanded treatment options. “There’s a lot of politics tied to drugs and treatment and I think that when people come out, it heightens the awareness and makes people focus that much more on developing new drugs,” said Nancy Colton, 48 and the mother of three sons, who was diagnosed with metatastic breast cancer. “My oncologist is always telling me I have to stay healthy,” she said. “New drugs are coming out all the time.” 25 years of service to area Over several decades, attitudes toward cancer have changed — from a societal stigma to what now oncologists with the American Cancer Society label as a chronic disease similar to diabetes. Some cancers cannot be cured, but they can be treated. “Twenty years ago, when I was in nursing school, I remember taking care of people with cancer who would see it as a death sentence,” said Marty Nason, a program director of the Valley/Ventura Chapter of the Wellness Community. The Wellness Community was founded 25 years ago in Santa Monica by Dr. Harold Benjamin. It has since blossomed to include 22 such facilities nationwide, where free support groups, information and exercise and nutrition classes are offered to cancer patients and their families. The services are offered by volunteers, and paid for through community and corporate donations, fundraisers and grants. Nason and oncology nurse Beth Kin opened the Westlake Village facility. “We knew there was a need for a program like this in our community,” Nason said. “It’s been pretty exciting and gratifying.” As for changing attitudes, Nason believes when stories about high-profile women like Edwards, comedian Gilda Radner and actress Shirley Temple Black go public with their battle, patients ask doctors more questions about available screening tests. “It’s so important to ask if something is available,” Nason said. “When you see the people in our support group, none of them said they had any pain before they were diagnosed. That’s what’s scary.” The openness among public figures gives the impression that there is more cancer than before, Nason said. A 2007 report from the California Department of Health Services found that overall cancer incidence rates have decreased by 10 percent between 1988 and 2003, while the cancer mortality rate has declined by 18 percent in that same period, the last year for which data was available. However, it is predicted that one out of every two Californians born in 2007 will develop cancer at some point in their lives. And one out of five will die of the disease. “Tony Snow’s announcement is particularly important, because his diagnosis was late and colon cancer can be stopped with regular screening,” said Katie Spangle, spokeswoman for the American Cancer Society, Los Angeles Region. “Both Snow and Edwards are doing an enormous public service by talking about it.” But others believe that openness comes with a sacrifice for people in the public eye. “My initial reaction is I’m sorry they have to do it so publicly, because it’s such an emotional thing,” said Dr. Bernard Lewinsky, a radiation oncologist based in West Hills who sits on the board for directors for the Wellness Community. “They are forced to mask their human fear, and that’s unfair.” Almost like Elizabeth But inside the Wellness Community, emotions are welcomed and transformed, into yoga positions offered by voluntary experts and through watercolor classes, which Patty McClanahan, 51, really likes. Like Edwards, McClanahan was diagnosed with breast cancer a few years back. She underwent chemotherapy, a lumpectomy and a mastectomy. But the cancer was still there, and spread from breast to bone. Back in her hometown of Athens, Ohio, doctors shook their heads and told McClanahan there was nothing more they could do. “The doctors in Ohio pretty much gave up on me,” McClanahan said. “They advised me to check into a nursing home. I said no way. I’m too stubborn.” McClanahan’s older sister, who has fought three bouts of breast cancer, said it was time to head to California to UCLA, where McClanahan could get a second opinion. She’s been in Los Angeles since February, awaiting surgery and jumped at the chance to join the support group at the Wellness Community when she heard about it. But others in her group have had a more difficult time accepting the diagnosis. Nancy Colton was diagnosed in October 2005, but she didn’t start coming to the Wellness Center until February 2006. “It took Nancy that long to get her head wrapped around what was happening,” said Colton’s mother, Harriet Wasserman. Wasserman also attends a support group at the Wellness Center for loved ones of those with cancer. Wasserman, a Tarzana resident, said that after hearing her daughter’s diagnosis, she went home, locked herself into the bathroom and cried. “I remembering thinking, I want my old life back,” she said. Colton said she was simply in shock, unable to react until months later because of the flurry of appointments and surgeries that she had to schedule just after her diagnosis. Unlike Edwards, Colton has not had chemotherapy treatments because the cancer discovered in her breast already had spread. The hardest part about Edwards’ and Snow’s announcement is reading and hearing news reports about how those with incurable cancer have five to seven years to live, Wasserman said. The support group helps her cope. “For me, it’s being able to talk to somebody who is in the same situation, to relate to others in the same boat,” Wasserman said. “This place is the best kept secret.” And Colton said the statistics merely give her a different perspective. “I would like to live 20 or 30 years more, but I’m on a mini time plan,” she said. “In five years, my older son will have graduated from college, my middle son will have graduated from high school, and my youngest one will have his bar mitzvah. I’m looking at it as how much can I get out that time.”— Susan Abram, (818) 713-3664 susan.abram@dailynews.comlast_img read more

Vets’ Stand Down a success

first_imgLANCASTER – Fifty-seven veterans at the first 2006 Antelope Valley Stand Down were treated to a USO-type show, health services, new clothing and many other perks. “Stand down” is a military term for sending combat troops away from the front lines to a safe place for rest and recuperation. The Jan. 21 event, the latest in a series conducted since 2003, was aimed at veterans coping with problems, though it was open to all veterans and their families. “It was a whole community showing its veterans how much they care for and appreciate them,” said Steve Baker, executive director of the Grace Resource Center food bank in Lancaster and Stand Down co-chairman. “To us, it’s a heartwarming feeling, to say the least.” For the first time, the event was held at Grace Chapel, 44645 15th St. W. It was also the first time USO-style entertainment was offered and for the first time, dental services included on-site fillings and extractions. Alexis Jobe and Charmayne Zegan from the San Fernando Beauty Academy in Lancaster gave haircuts to veterans. The Lion’s Club Eyemobile, under the administration of Wayne Hoffmeyer, provided vision screenings. The Lancaster Rotary Club served breakfast, lunch and sack dinners after retreat sounded at 3:30 p.m. Arch Shifflett of Acton Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 10606 manned the clothing tables where new and good used clothing and blankets could be obtained. Employment counseling was offered, as was assistance in finding shelter or taking care of missed court appearances and other legal problems. When veteran Jim Harris was asked what services he liked most, he doffed his knit cap to show his new haircut. One of the younger vets to show up was Dirk Ortega, who came in a wheelchair, his left foot and leg in a plaster cast from what he said was a service-related injury. “I broke it on Parris Island when I jumped off a truck,” Ortega said. Marcus David Rich got some counseling from Hulofton “James” Robinson, a worker from the U.S. Veterans Affairs West Los Angeles Veterans Outreach program. When they were finished, Rich sat down at the piano and pounded out a tune. Lancaster High School Junior ROTC cadets raised the flag in the morning and Highland High School cadets sounded retreat in the afternoon. Other teens helped serve food and distributed sodas and bottles of water throughout the day. “I think these one-day events are far more effective than the longer ones,” said the other Stand Down co-chairman, retired naval officer Tom Craft. “Our vets get just as much attention and it isn’t dragged out so long that they get bored.” “It’s also easier on our volunteers,” agreed George Palermo, head of the Point Man of Antelope Valley Vietnam veterans organization and committee secretary. Menus for the week at the senior life nutrition sites in Lancaster and Palmdale have been announced. All meals include bread, margarine and coffee, tea or milk, for a suggested donation of $2. Monday: Chili egg puff, chili beans, spinach, vegetable soup, coleslaw, apple. Tuesday: Baked ziti, baked vegetables, garden salad, apple juice, vanilla ice cream. Wednesday: Cranberry chicken, wild rice, juice, green beans, carrot salad, gelatin with fruit. Thursday: Roast turkey sandwich, mashed potatoes, stewed tomatoes, tossed salad, cheesecake. Friday: Barbecued pork sandwich or fish fillet, soup, scalloped potatoes, corn, marinated salad, citrus cup. This column disseminates news of interest to seniors of all ages.

Man broke into Garda station, defecated on counter and stole uniforms

first_imgA young man broke into a Garda station, defecated on the counter and then stole a number of items including Garda hats, vests and radios.Michael Brennan was caught on CCTV spending more than 25 minutes rummaging around Lifford Garda station in Co Donegal. Brennan broke in through the side window of the building just before 5am on September 5th, 2015.He was seen going to the toilet on the counter of the station before leaving the building while still wearing a Garda hat.A swab was later taken off the faeces in a bid to track down Brennan.Brennan, now aged 21, appeared at Letterkenny District Court where he pleaded guilty to causing criminal damage during a burglary at the station.Garda Inspector Goretti Sheridan told the court that Brennan was seen on CCTV entering the unmanned station at 4.55am and spending 25 minutes inside.He defecated on the public counter of the station before gathering a number of official Garda items.Lifford Garda Station which Brennan broke into.These included two Garda caps, a pocket diary, handcuffs, a car key, a Garda vest, a torch and two Garda radios.The court heard how CCTV footage showed Brennan walking down Bridge Street towards the nearby Co Tyrone town of Strabane wearing one of the Garda caps.Brennan was eventually apprehended by the PSNI in Strabane and was still wearing some of the stolen items.Some of his family helped to recover the other items apart from the Garda torch.It was revealed in court how Brennan later appeared at Strabane Magistrates Court where he was jailed for three months for possession of stolen goods.Brennan’s solicitor, Mr Donagh Cleary, said “It was a fair cop in every sense of the word.”He said his client had suffered from drink and drug addiction but was now back in the care of his father and living in Lifford.He added that he had been punished in Northern Ireland for the crime and that there was no loss apart from the clean-up to the Garda station.Judge Paul Kelly said there was indeed a cost to the state for Brennan’s “disgusting behaviour.”He was told by Garda Inspector Goretti Sheridan that the cost to clean up a cell if damaged is €225 and this would probably be the same cost.“There was a repulsive message in what he did and a clear message was sent to the authorities and also by the way he paraded around,” he added.He adjourned the case until June 11th to allow for the €225 to be paid to Gardai.He added that he will keep in mind that Brennan has already served a sentence in connection with the crime in Northern Ireland.Man broke into Garda station, defecated on counter and stole uniforms was last modified: April 12th, 2018 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:burglarycounterdefecateddonegalhatsLIfford Garda stationStabaneuniformslast_img read more
