Butt wants to return to Pakistan team

first_imgISLAMABAD (AP):Former Pakistan cricket captain Salman Butt hopes to play for his country again after the ICC lifted sanctions on him for his involvement in an infamous 2010 spot-fixing scandal.Butt was the captain when fast bowlers Mohammad Asif and Mohammad Amir delivered deliberate no-balls on behest of a bookmaker during the Lord’s Test against England.The trio was suspended for a minimum five years by an ICC anti-corruption tribunal and they even spent time in prison in England for cheating in an international match.The ICC said all three cricketers are eligible to play in both domestic and international cricket after their five-year ban ends on September 1.”I pray to God that nobody should go through such a phase in his life,” Butt told reporters in his hometown in Lahore on Thursday. “My request to children is that instead of committing a mistake, they should learn from our mistake and be a good human being and a good cricketer.”losing appealsAmir pleaded guilty and was allowed to compete in domestic cricket earlier this year.However, Butt and Asif both fought their cases before eventually losing their appeals in the Court of Arbitration for Sport in Switzerland.But both cricketers eventually acknowledged their involvement in spot-fixing and even appeared before the ICC anti-corruption unit before sanctions were lifted.Butt and Asif have to undergo PCB’s rehabilitation programme, after which both cricketers could compete in domestic cricket.”I have already given my availability to the PCB and whatever the requirement of the tribunal is, I am here to fulfil it,” Butt said.Amir and Asif were regarded as Pakistan’s spearheads in all the three formats before they were suspended, while Butt was a prolific batsman. Butt hoped he won’t be taking much time in returning to his previous best.”Over the last five years I have practised and trained regularly,” he said. “It’s true that if you don’t play competitive cricket for some time you get rusty but with few matches it will be fine.”last_img read more

Bandit shot by accomplice after robbing Berbice family

first_imgA bandit was accidently shot and killed by his accomplice while making their escape after robbing an East Bank Berbice family during the wee hours of Sunday.The dead bandit has been identified as Odan Lallbeharry called “Stew”, 45, of New Forest, East Canje, Berbice.According to reports, “Stew” was among five armed men who invaded and robbed the Edinburg Village home of shop owner Nankumar Datt and it was while they were escaping that he was shot and left behind by his accomplices.“During (the robbery) one of the suspects received gunshot injuries in the process of exiting the premises and was later pronounced dead on arrival at the New Amsterdam Hospital,” a Police report said.The bandits gained entry to the premises by climbing onto a shed and forcing their way through a bedroom windowAccording to the Police, the incident occurred sometime around 01:30h.Datt’s eldest daughter, Kelly, related the ordeal to Guyana Times on Sunday when she explained that she was awoken by the sound of persons walking on the zinc shed attached to their two-storey house and shortly after her father shouted that bandits were coming, they should run.“But when he shouts that, the bandits hear and so they hurry and break the window to my sister’s room and come in the house. She was trying to open the room door to get out but she was having a hard time so they catch and start beating her,” the traumatised Kelly related.The 21-year-old said that she was then confronted by two men and tried to prevent them from getting to her father, who escaped to seek help. Their mother was in hiding at the time.She said that the men began shouting for her father by his call-name “Ball Head” and after they were unable to locate him, they began beating her and her 19-year-old sister. At time there were five men in total, all of whom were masked, she stated.“They beat us bad… they were hitting us with a cutlass; then they told us to put on the lights, and asked for money,” the young woman recalled.She went on to say that three of them remained upstairs with her sister while two of them forced her downstairs into the shop, where she handed over some money, while they picked up a quantity of phone cards.“They bring down my sister and continue to beat her and after some time took us back upstairs and asked for more money. So I tell them they have to search the place but then my mother came out and give them the money ($100,000) because they start beating me and my sister again,” she recounted.Kelly further told this newspaper that the men also took away her mother’s gold bracelet and some artificial jewellery that she and her sister were wearing, before escaping.“They told us not to move from the upstairs so they stay right there and then we hear two gunshots in the downstairs and we get scared because we thought was my father get shoot,” she stated.The young woman said that they remained upstairs for a few minutes until they heard noises from neighbours and came downstairs. She noted that when they came down and got outside, they saw a man lying outside on the bridge, while her father was with the neighbours who were gathering around. The Police then arrived at the scene.In a subsequent statement, the Police said that they arrived on the scene at about 02:00, and found the injured bandit on the businessman’s bridge, clad in dark clothing and a pair of construction gloves.The Police added that the suspect was taken to the hospital for treatment but succumbed to his injuries.Police say they managed to extract some vital information from the bandit before he succumbed.That information led to the arrest of two individuals who are currently in custody assisting with the investigations.last_img read more

49th Republic anniversary messages

first_imgAs Guyana celebrates its 49th Republic anniversary under the theme “Celebrate Mash 49 with Victory in Mind”, wishes for prosperity were extended to the country and its people.Pray for peace, unityamong citizens – PNCROn the other hand, the People’s National Congress Reform (PNCR) pointed out that the national celebration of Mashramani is an occasion for reflection and assessment of the State of the nation, 49 years after Guyana was declared a Republic.“This year Mashramani is being held under the theme, “Celebrate Mash 49 with Victory in Mind”. In this regard, it must be evident to all that we, as Guyanese, need to redouble our efforts to banish crime, disease, ignorance and poverty. We must strengthen national unity, expand national infrastructure, fortify national institutions, ensure national security and extend public services. We must not rest until victory is ours,” the PNCR said.The party, in extending wishes to Guyanese, urges that they pray for the spirit of peace, love and unity will dwell among citizens on the 49th anniversary of the country’s Republic.Strive for prosperous Guyana – GAWUMeanwhile, the Guyana Agricultural and General Workers Union (GAWU) in saluting the nation on this Republic anniversary, simultaneously takes a sober look at where the Republic stands nearly half a century on.“No doubt we made strides in various socio-economic aspects during this time but, we contend, that the economic transformation whereby the masses of Guyanese could experience fully the results of development is still to be achieved. To this day, the economic struggle for a reasonable standard of living continues. Too many of our skilled, qualified citizens have opted for migration in pursuit of a better life. As we have noted before the “Good Life” here is still out of grasp of the working-people,” the Union said.Nevertheless, GAWU calls on Guyanese not to abandon hope and unite and struggle for genuine progressive change, that bring about enduring prosperity and all-round progress benefiting every Guyanese.IAC calls for lasting unityAlso joining in extending Republic anniversary wishes is the Indian Action Committee (IAC), which joined with the political parties, religious bodies, trade unions and other civil society groups in the call for inclusion, genuine and lasting national unity in the drive towards economic development and prosperity.Current political situation a learning experience towards nationhood – Sam HindsFurthermore, former President and Prime Minister Samuel Hinds in his Republic message, said it is his hope that this year’s celebration, despite the blatant disregard of the No-confidence Motion, would be a learning experience on the way to nationhood, a vaccination against a reoccurrence in the lifetime of Guyanese alive today.“If it were to help us learn once more, not to be seduced by the seemingly easy, often unlawful path and avoid the honourable path that appears to be more challenging and demanding of us, then we would find our prospects of oil more rewarding,” he said.President Trumpcongratulates GuyanaMeanwhile, United States President Donald Trump congratulated both the country and its people, saying the North American nation takes pride in its partnership with is South American neighbour.“Guyana is one of the United States’ most important partners in ensuring the Americas remain a zone of democracy, freedom, and security. We look forward to a continuing collaborative partnership going forward, supporting the security and economic interests of both our nations.”President Trump assured the Guyana Government and Guyanese that as they assess the future direction of the country, the US recognises and honours Guyana’s respect for the principles and integrity of democratic governance and institutions.last_img read more

City addresses trailer park closure concerns

first_imgAlthough the City understands the plight of residents of the City Centre Mobile Home Park, it has no control over the closure of the privately owned park.That’s the message from the City coming from Monday’s Fort St. John City Council meeting.- Advertisement -City Manager Dianne Hunter told councillors that the City has received numerous phone calls from worried park residents who believed the park’s closure was under the City’s jurisdiction. However, Hunter said the City has no ability to stop the closure of private land.The 1.558 hectare property is currently up for sale for $2.49 million, in which the listing states that there is support to rezone the area to an R2 classification, a high density residential area.Fort St. John City Planner Kevin Brooks had previously told Energeticcity.ca that the City was contacted by a representative of the trailer park owner late last year. Brooks said the representative asked about the property’s current classification and the potential for its rezoning.However, Hunter said that, at this point, the City has not received an application to rezone the park, which cannot even be considered until after the park has been closed.Although the City has no control over the park’s closure, there is one bylaw in place that does indirectly affect park residents. Hunter said the bylaw prevents a mobile home more than 10 years-old from being moved into or within city limits, because of safety and fire code concerns. Thus, any park residents with trailers older than 10 years would have to relocate their trailers outside Fort St. John.However, she does add that the City will work with park residents, as well as the park owner throughout the process.Advertisementlast_img read more

Paul Pogba will NEVER be as good as Chelsea or Liverpool legends, talkSPORT told

first_imgRodney Marsh believes Paul Pogba will never be as good as either Frank Lampard or Steven Gerrard.Italy legend Andrea Pirlo claims the former Manchester United star, now his teammate at Juventus, is on the verge of becoming one of the continent’s best players.“If he carries on the way he is, then he will become the greatest midfield player in Europe – and at his age he could have that title for a long time,” the 36-year-old said.But former Man City, QPR and England striker insists the France international will never surpass the achievements of either Lampard or Gerrard.The former England pair have called time on their Premier League careers this season, after more than a decade spent at the top level.“No, it’s never going to happen,” Marsh told talkSPORT, when asked about Pirlo’s quotes. “Paul Pogba doesn’t score enough goals. He won’t get anywhere near close to Frank Lampard, ever.”talkSPORT presenter Jason Cundy challenged the 70-year-old, saying: “I think the boy is a class act.”But Marsh added: “I don’t disagree with that, but Pirlo has said he’s going to become the greatest thing in Europe. No he’s not.“He won’t be as good as Steven Gerrard or Frank Lampard.”last_img read more

Job market inspires environmental interest

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREChargers go winless in AFC West with season-ending loss in Kansas CityThe event brought together about 100 students, teachers, board members and experts in environment-related fields to revamp Rio Hondo’s courses to cater to job openings today, bringing what Castaneda-Calleros called an outdated program up to speed. The college chose to host the event to draw in community members rather than a simple focus group because of the fast pace of change in environmentally based professions. “The number of people retiring in these fields is growing, and the number of people replacing them is diminishing,” Rio Hondo College board President Maria Elena Martinez said. The event was sponsored by the Upper San Gabriel Valley Municipal Water District, the Central Basin Municipal Water District and the Sanitation Districts of Los Angeles County. “ABC Eyewitness News” weatherman Danny Romero, a Rio Hondo alumnus, was master of ceremonies. Assemblyman Ed Hernandez, D-West Covina, and Rio Hondo College President Ted Martinez Jr. each delivered an address to the symposium. But most development for the new environmental science program at Rio Hondo occurred in five break-out sessions, where participants chose between five categories, including waste management and environmental health and safety. These programs were led by students and professors and included experts in each field. Castaneda-Calleros said each session included a note taker who will write a “white paper” describing the discussion from that group, to be included in a pamphlet that will be handed out to participants by February. The sessions focused not only on professional jobs where students would go on to a four-year university, but on vocational training as well. Groups discussed how training for mechanics must change for hybrid cars and how other careers will change because of environmental consciousness. Rich Brito, a first-semester student and an energy company specialist, said he is returning to school to finish a four-year degree in environmental science. Brito, 43, said the symposium could boost programs and awareness around the Los Angeles area. “There’s a lack of environmental programs throughout the junior colleges in Southern California,” Brito said. Ted Martinez said the program was a way to hear from employers about how to better prepare students for the work force. Martinez also said students would be listened to, through papers published on symposium discussions and in other ways as curriculum is reformed to concentrate on preparing students for developing industries. “Right now, they’re here, they’re listening to a discussion,” Martinez said of students. “Their awareness is increasing. We will look for ways to seek input from them as well.” airan.scruby@sgvn.com (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3029 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

The symposium, the product of more than a year of planning, aimed to improve the junior college’s program for environmental education. “This is to help us identify what types of skills and training are needed for green-collar jobs,” said Russell Castaneda-Calleros, director of community relations for the college. last_img read more
