Kansas’ Devonte’ Graham (4) holds the trophy after defeating Duke in a regional final game in the NCAA men’s college basketball tournament Sunday, March 25, 2018, in Omaha, Neb. Kansas won 85-81 in overtime. (AP Photo/Charlie Neibergall)OMAHA, Neb. — Kansas is going back to the Final Four.It’s hard to argue that Duke shouldn’t be headed there as well after the most riveting show of the NCAA tournament.ADVERTISEMENT Judy Ann’s 1st project for 2020 is giving her a ‘stomachache’ Trevon Duval scored 20 points, two shy of a career high, for Duke. Freshman star and future lottery pick Marvin Bagley added 16 points and 10 rebounds in what could have been his final game for the Blue Devils (29-8), who fell shy of their first Final Four trip since winning the national title in 2015.Allen had 12 points for the Blue Devils, but the senior’s try at the regulation buzzer went in and then out and then off the rim before spinning away to force overtime.“I was trying to drive right, he cut me off. Went back left. Their big stepped into help. I had to get a shot up over him. I tried to bank it in and it about went in,” said Allen, who finished his brilliant career with 1,996 points.THE BIG PICTUREKansas: This might be the unlikeliest of coach Bill Self’s three Final Four squads. They are not stacked with obvious future NBA starters and they lost three times at home this season. But the Jayhawks banded together to win the Big 12′s regular season and conference titles and now the Midwest Region. By doing so, they proved to their coach that they were hardly soft — a claim that Self had made often earlier in the season. And with the final buzzer about to sound and the outcome suddenly in focus, Self clenched both of his fists and lifted his arms in the air for a celebration years in the making.Duke: The Blue Devils might see four of their freshman stars bolt for the NBA Draft, an expected exodus led by Bagley, a likely top-five pick. Duke will also lose Allen, one of the best players in school history. Don’t cry for Coach K, who has four five-star recruits committed to join the program next year. But this season will likely be remembered as a lost opportunity — and for that Allen shot that went agonizingly out of the rim.PIVOTAL MOMENTDuval was a revelation in the opening half, scoring 13 points to give the Blue Devils a 36-33 lead that at times felt like it could’ve been bigger. But the Jayhawks opened the second with a 13-3 run, forcing Duke to answer quickly. The Blue Devils did just that, time and time again, until it had the lead in the final minute. But Kansas senior Svi Mykhailiuk drilled a 3 with 25.7 seconds left in the second half to knot the game at 72-all.THE NUMBERSKansas outrebounded Duke 47-32, a staggering stat given that the Jayhawks barely outrebounded their opponents heading into the game. …Lagerald Vick had 14 points, Devonte’ Graham had 11 with six boards and six assists and Mykhailiuk had 11 points, 10 rebounds and five assists while helping defend Bagley. “Even though Malik scored a lot of points, I don’t think that anybody had a better game than Svi did,” Self said. … The Blue Devils were 7 of 29 on 3s.last_img read more

GECOM reforms unlikely for 2020 elections – AFC

first_imgFollowing numerous and repeated recommendations from election observer groups over the years for the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM) to undergo reforms, the Alliance For Change (AFC) has stated that these transformations will not be likely before the 2020 General and Regional Elections.This was disclosed by the party’s General Secretary David Patterson, who told reporters at a press conference on Friday that while GECOM reforms is high on the AFC’s priority list, it is unlikely that this will be done in time for the country’s next national elections.“It is quite high (on the priority list) but to get there before 2020… As a party, we do know that we will be part of the Government from 2020 going on… so therefore we have talked and I’ve given it a lot of thought, and I know coming up to elections, what areas we have to look at not only politically but administratively and legislatively to strengthen the hand of the AFC either singly or in a coalition or shared governance – whatever format – and that’s what is driving our priorities,” Patterson stated.For decades now, Elections Observer Groups both internationally and regionally have been insisting that while GECOM’s purpose for existence is to administer free and fair electoral processes, Guyana should consider reforms that would reduce or eliminate the politicised composition of election bodies in order to ensure independence and impartiality.However, while the AFC recognised the need to end the practice of having political appointees as members of GECOM, the party’s General Secretary admitted on Friday to reporters that little has been done to bring the matter up for discussion with its coalition partner – A Partnership for National Unity (APNU).Patterson explained that this is so because the AFC has as priority issues such as Constitution reforms, campaign financing legislations and corruption matters on its agenda.He said, “It is not one of the topics that have arisen at the moment so far… We don’t want to move anything to displace our priority which is constitutional reform. We have a massive list of things to discuss which we go down sequentially. (The list of things) is getting longer everyday to discuss with our coalition partner but there are certain things which we are mandated to do by our members and constitutional reforms and campaign financing and corruption issues and things like that are high on the agenda,” the General Secretary said, while adding that the AFC will eventually get to the reforming of GECOM.Currently, the elections oversight body comprised using the Carter Centre model that was introduced for the 1992 elections. This model provides for three members each from Government and Opposition and the Chairman appointed by the President from a list of names submitted to him by the Opposition, a process which many say have since exhausted its usefulness.To this end, Patterson outlined that the AFC believes there should be more civil society involvement in GECOM. In fact, he recalled that his party has recommended that the seven-member commission be replaced with a 10-member body, three of whom will be representatives from political parties and the remaining members from civil society.“We have been on record and we reduced the Government and Opposition’s participation to a third and rest must be made up of civilians,” he stated, while noting that such a model has been adopted by Jamaica and is proving to be successful.AFC General SecretaryDavid Pattersonlast_img read more

Puruni miners decry state of roads

first_img…say forced to intermittently halt operationsMining syndicates in Puruni, Region Seven (Cuyuni-Mazaruni) are being forced to suspend their operations at various intervals owing to the nearly impassable roads in the area. They told reporters on Tuesday that the Public Infrastructure Ministry and by extension, the Government must rectify the problem, so they can earn a livelihood without hindrance.Scenes from the Puruni road in Region Seven (Cuyuni-Mazaruni)The Body’s President Cheryl Williams told the gathering that she has been incurring losses along with her fellow miners and noted that she too was forced to suspend her operations, saying that others were also forced to suspend mining. It was explained that the road was “neglected” for over one year and that it has deteriorated over the past several months. In some cases, she noted, persons have been injured.“The appalling condition of the road affects miners significantly as most miners struggle to transport supplies to keep their operations afloat. Last December, a miner travelling to Puruni was forced to exit his vehicle to walk a portion of the road as the vehicle was wrecked. During that process, the miner suffered a broken leg and was transported to Bartica and then to Georgetown for medical attention,” Williams recalled.She further explained that while individuals would pay $15,000 to travel by road or $20,000 by water, the prices heighten as the roads worsen.“The trucks that going in would charge $300,000 to $1,000,000 to get in when the road is bad and you take four to five days just to reach Puruni…we are pleading with the Government, the Ministry of Infrastructure, the Guyana Geology and Mines Commission to fix the Puruni road and rid miners of the trials currently faced to accessing mining areas,” she noted.Williams met with operatives of the Guyana Geology and Mines Commission (GGMC) and Natural Resources Ministry, the latter of which promised to address the road. She added that the roads are always being discussed at the level of the GGMC.Another miner, Dana Jones is, however, calling for a full investigation and immediate action into the conditions. “We’re calling for an investigation from the national standpoint because we are miners but human beings as well – we are not dogs,” she stressed.Another miner observed that the sector is a significant contributor to the country’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP). The miners have also highlighted the risks involved in using the river to reach their destinations as opposed to land travel.In images released in the media, some trucks were virtually buried in muddy lakes within the roads and had to be pulled out by other trucks. This is a very risky and life-threating situation which has resulted in injuries to some, the Body said. The Puruni road runs from Itaballi through Papishpou and is said to be the only entrance and exit to various sections of Region Seven.last_img read more

B.C. First introduces agriculture platform

first_imgB.C. First Agricultural Advisor Arthur Hadland, who currently farms in the Baldonnel area in the North Peace, says the province is uniquely positioned to achieve agricultural self sufficiency in a short period of time.Hadland says that province has some of the best farmlands in the world. He says the key to success is ensuring practices which sustain farmlands and support a diversity of products are encouraged.Delaney also expresses concerns regarding genetically modified foods. He says that the use of GM foods will need to be investigated and legislations may need to be introduced, to protect the health of British Columbians and the provincial agriculture industry. A new policy has been proposed by the B.C. First party which focuses on local food production and self sufficiency.The proposed policy, released Sunday, is titled the B.C. First Agriculture and Land Policy. The policy focuses on increasing consumer’s ability to purchase locally produced foods, while also decreasing mass food production.- Advertisement -The policy will include a variety of guidelines, including allowing meat to be butchered and processed locally and to enhance local farming and meat production through the consumption of naturally grown products.The proposal also stresses the importance of establishing a panel to investigate food production, importing and the use of genetically modified foods (GM foods). The party also outlines how it wants to encourage the preservation of farm lands.The party considers it important to increase the production, distribution and consumption of locally grown agricultural products and hopes to increase the current rates from 50 to 85 per cent within the next 15 years.B.C. First spokesperson Chris Delaney says the policy is designed to stimulate and enhance more natural food production methods and increase the diversity and amounts of food produced in the province.Advertisementlast_img read more

Aodh Rua began to feel their way into the game and were beginning to find space in the forward lines, scoring two points after a few wides.But Naomh Colmcille replied with four points in succession, with Willie Gillespie splitting the posts from the angle on the right before Ryan McElrean got two points and Mark Dowds rounded off a slick move from the back with a well taken point. Aodh Rua added their third before Matthew Crossan sent over a point from the centre. With a few minutes left on the clock in the first half Aodh Rua added a free and then breached the Naomh Colmcille defence to find the net.As the half drew to a close Matthew Crossan curled over a free from the left and Willie Gillespie saw a diving effort with his fist go narrowly wide of the net.After an even enough first half the score was Naomh Colmcille 0-07 Aodh Rua 1-06.Aodh Rua came out strongly in the second half and mounted wave after wave of attack, registering a goal and three points without reply in a ten minute period. Joe Higgins rang the changes and brought on William Lynch, Don Hegarty and Andrew Clarke. Naomh Colmcille began to stem the tide and scored three points, two from Crossan before a goalbound effort from Ciaran Devine was deflected over the bar.Aodh Rua replied with a point worked from a short free before Naomh Colmcille split the posts again and Don Hegarty found the net to reduce the margin to two points with just over 5 minutes to go. Ciaran Callaghan was introduced from the benchNaomh Colmcille had the bit between their teeth now and Willie Gillespie and Ryan McErlean both pointed to draw the teams level a 1-13 to 2-10 at the end of regulation time.During the six minutes of injury time added by the referee both sides had chances to win it, with Aodh Rua hitting two wides and Willie Gillespie just missing a chance to nick it for Naomh Colmcille right at the end.So after an evenly contested first half, Aodh Rua looked to be in control in the third quarter but Naomh Colmcille’s impressive comeback means the teams will meet again to decide who advances to the final.
