FILLY BY BIRDONTHEWIRE BEST OF SEVEN IN GOLDEN STATE SERIES RACE FOR 3-YEAR-OLD FILLIES BRED OR SIRED IN CALIFORNIA ARCADIA, Calif. (May 23, 2015)–Allowed to idle in the early stages, favored Sheer Pleasure turned on the after-burners at the top of the lane and went on to a devastating 7 ¼ length win under Tyler Baze in Saturday’s $200,000 Melair Stakes. Conditioned by Phil D’Amato and owned by Little Red Feather Racing and RM Racing, Sheer Pleasure got a mile and a sixteenth in 1:42.78. (Run as Santa Anita’s seventh race, the Melair, for 3-year-old fillies, is part of the Golden State Series which is restricted to horses bred or sired in California).The 4-5 favorite in a field of seven 3-year-old fillies, Sheer Pleasure paid $3.60, $2.60 and $2.40. A winner of the 6 ½ furlong Evening Jewel Stakes at Santa Anita on April 4, Sheer Pleasure notched her third win from five starts and with the winner’s share of $110,000, increased her earnings to $257,450.“I don’t think me being near the lead was a matter of me trying to put her somewhere, it was a matter of getting her comfortable and her finding her stride,” said Baze, who teamed with D’Amato four races earlier to win the $150,000 Spring Fever Stakes with Sunday Rules. “It was a great win today, she’s a great filly.”D’Amato, who has had Sheer Pleasure since her debut last December, was understandable elated.“The way she won, she might be one for open company, so we’ll just play it by ear,” he said. “She trained very well. She’s trained as well as she ever had. I thought we’d have a good shot but the way she opened up in the stretch was a pleasant surprise.”Billy Koch, representing co-owner Little Red Feather Racing, summed up Sheer Pleasure’s attributes thusly: “You see her in the paddock and she doesn’t turn a hair, then she comes out with all these people and she just blows me away. She’s tiny and sometimes they can just run. And she can run.”Runner-up Thermodynamics, who sat second to pacesetter Tribal Express, was some 7 ¾ lengths clear of third place finisher, longshot Barbara Beatrice. Ridden by Gary Stevens, Thermodynamics was the third choice in the wagering and paid $4.20 and $2.80.Ridden by Tiago Pereira, Barbara Beatrice was off at 18-1 and paid $5.20 to show.Fractions on the race were 23.54, 46.99, 1:11.33 and 1:36.31. –30–

Piancastelli could not have picked a better time to tally her first hit of the contest than in the bottom of the eighth with the bases loaded and two outs. The four-time Southland Player of the Year drove pinch hitter Taylor Edwards home to give McNeese a chance to clinch a berth in its third-consecutive NCAA Tournament.SB: @McNeeseSoftball is headed to the Southland Conference Softball Tournament championship! The Cowgirls’ Erika Piancastelli delivers the walk-off single to end this one in eight innings. #SouthlandStrong pic.twitter.com/qN3VAQQPb0— Southland Conference (@SouthlandSports) May 10, 2018 The back-to-back Southland tournament champion defeated No. 1 Nicholls 3-2 in eight innings Thursday to claim a spot in tomorrow’s championship, a 12 p.m. first pitch on ESPNU. The Colonels play the winner of No. 4 Southeastern Louisiana and No. 8 Sam Houston State at approximately 4 p.m. CT today for a spot in the title game. Nicholls’ leftfielder Kasey Frederick singled past the shortstop to gain the 1-0 lead in the opening frame of the game. The hit scored third baseman Jewel Lara who had doubled to left field on a 0-2 count. The Cowgirls came close to tying it in the bottom of the first when Piancastelli stole second and third after picking up the four-pitch walk. With runners on the corners, Piancastelli attempted to take home on a delayed steal but was caught. The game started off in favor of the top-seeded squad. McNeese had an opportunity to take the lead late in the sixth inning with the bases loaded, one out and returning to the top of the order. The Colonels’ Alexis LaBure, who had entered in for relief after starting pitcher Megan Landry went five innings, recorded the second out at home to get pinch runner Toni Perrin before striking out Piancastelli looking to get out of the jam. Nicholls put the pressure on in the top of the seventh with runners on second and third with two outs, but McNeese’s Alexandria Flores forced Lara to groundout to the shortstop for the third out to keep the score at two apiece. Flores tossed 107 pitches for the eight innings, registering six strikeouts and giving up six hits in the process. The win is her 18th of the year.
If he Barça pretend that Griezmann be the nine that can alleviate the four months of absence of Suarez, it will not be easy. While Messi and Suarez, who have been on sick leave for relatively long periods, have collaborated on 26 and 25 goals respectively during the course, he has done so in 15 playing virtually everything (11 goals and 4 assists). What can not be doubted is his ability as a footballer. In Ibiza, he also threw down the theories that he disappeared away from Camp Nou. He was the only player on the team with a sharp edge and gained tons of credibility leaving Barça alive in the Cup. If he Barça was two summers behind Griezmann it was for something similar to that of Ibiza. Beyond playing against a team of Second Division B to which the Catalans were forced to win by decree, the situation had become almost dramatic and the French avoided a high-scale earthquake. His two goals in the only two serious shots on goal that his team made throughout the game (the other was a very soft shot of Rakitic) put the Barça in eighths and prevented the partner’s eyes from looking at the bench and even the box. Setien Y Bartomeu They can agree to thank French. Griezmann It was the solution, but also a symptom. He was the holder who least touched the ball in the Barça The whole game, 32 touches. Less even than Net (33). Less even than an alternate, Carles Pérez (3. 4). Happens that Griezmann He is a player who does not play for the gallery, but to be pragmatic. And in that it was the best long Barça in Ibiza. It goes in its price, 120 million euros, but it did so in some circumstances not easy, with a somewhat lost team in the plan that survived thanks to the instinct of the French, able to make two precise unchecks with two star finishes. Griezmann, moreover, can be attributed one more merit. It is adapting to what the team demands at all times. A gesture of humility that speaks very well of him. A star adapting to the needs of the group. In order not to alter the ecosystem of Messi and Suarez, he lay down on the left wing from the beginning in season with tactical discipline, although that clearly had an impact on its performance. He looked less and looked much less at the goal. It was a light version of Griezmann from Atlético. Now, Quique wants to fit him in the position of second striker. To that he also responded in Ibiza. His definitions after the services of De Jong and Alba, with which he also begins to understand with his eyes, were those of a senior striker. When Suárez and Messi were not there, he appeared. That’s why Griezmann came to Barça.
Before Daily Mail will reveal the content of the conversation, before the SkySports micros and in the press room, Guardiola has already denied that he abronó his players in this meeting. “After playing like this? Never. How am I going to criticize them after making this match?”, He said in defense of a squad he still trusts to achieve the remaining goals.The most complicated year for GuardiolaPep Guardiola is living a really difficult year when it comes to having to manage his staff. The injuries of Laporte and Stones, which has not regained its position in the center of the defense, have forced Guardiola to try new formulas with Fernandinho, the usual defensive midfielder, already accumulating 27 games as a central defense this season. In addition, this injury has also conditioned a medium where David Silva is not at the great level of past seasons, Rodri is in the period of adaptation and where Kevin de Bruyne’s excellent football holds the most important plot of the Pep set. Above, Sterling, Agüero and Gabriel Jesús maintain an excellent scoring level but the long-term loss of Leroy Sané also deprives of a great alternative for the Mancunian attack.In the Premier League they are 22 points behind Liverpool and give up a competition that had dominated several consecutive seasons. In the Carabao they have already secured the first final of the year (March 1 against Aston Villa) and in the FA Cup they also have a good course. In Champions, Real Madrid awaits in a round of 16 a team that wants to improve its role in this competition after two consecutive eliminations in the quarterfinals against Liverpool and Tottenham. The defeat against Tottenham Hotspur (2-0) set off alarms in Manchester City. The skyblue controlled possession, enjoyed many occasions but the goal, most importantly, resisted them. Even with a penalty failed by Gundogan. Those of Mourinho, who opted for defense and counterattack, threw three times and scored two goals. Enough to take the victory at home. After Mike Dean whistled the end, City players and coaching staff met for almost an hour inside the locker room to analyze the situation and find solutions. According to Daily Mail, Pep Guardiola was the one who started the talk asking players for solutions to improve the situation among all. The staff, at the request of the coach, asked to the coach who will moderate his changes in the initial eleven between match and match. The players believe that something similar to ‘an eleven type’ may be the solution to secure second place in the Premier and to leave behind Real Madrid in the Champions League, the great goal of this year along with the two domestic cups (Carabao and FA Cup) in which they hope to revalidate title.
BEIJING, China:As all three Jamaicans prepare to compete in today’s 110m hurdles semi-final, Olympic bronze-medal winner and national record holder, Hansle Parchment, believes it will take a sub-13 seconds effort to win gold in the event at the IAAF World Championships.Meanwhile, Andrew Riley, the Commonwealth champion, is hoping to make amends for the seventh-hurdle disaster he suffered in Moscow at the last World Championships, as he crashed out when looking destined for a medal.Parchment, whose 12.94 seconds remains the national record – despite being threatened by Omar McLeod, who clocked 12.97 to win at the National Senior Championships – is convinced he will have to test his mark himself if he is to win gold at the championships.The towering Jamaican clocked 13.33 seconds to win his heat yesterday, the fastest time among the Jamaicans.McLeod recovered from some early trouble to finish strongly in second, clocking 13.43, the same time done by Riley, who also finished second in his heat.Tough competition”I believe all the guys are gunning for very fast times and it’s going to be a tough competition. For the finals, I believe that there is a high possibility that the winner will run under 13 seconds,” Parchment told The Gleaner.”It was a pretty good first race after so long. There are still a few things to work on, especially relating to my technique and so on, but once I can get these things going, then the next round should be better,” added Parchment, before summing up his chances.”It’s an open field and anyone can win. There is no clear person and I feel I am among the group of athletes that can get on top. I am keeping my confidence up. I’m ready to give my best effort,” said Parchment.He noted being in good physical condition after what was only his first run since the National Senior Championships in June.Riley, whose heat was delayed for several minutes after American Ronnie Ash and Slovak Petr Svoboda were ejected for false starts with the former holding up the race in dispute of the decision, said a medal in Beijing would mean everything to him, especially given his disappointments two years ago.”It would mean a lot. In the last World Championships when I was in the mix and I ran into the seventh hurdle, I was really disappointed, but at the end of the day, you just have to keep on going and hope that one day your time will come,” Riley said, before admitting to watching replays of that race repeatedly in the past.”Earlier in the season, I had some hiccups, but now my training is going well. But anything can happen in the 110m hurdles, it’s 42 inches, so I just have to prepare myself to attack each hurdle,” said Riley.The men’s 110m hurdles semi-finals face the starter today at 6:05 a.m.- A.L.
Against the backdrop of the ban on the sale of bush meat on the local markets, agents of the Forestry Development Authority (FDA) assigned in Bomi County, have arrested two persons for allegedly being in possession of ‘illegal’ bush meat with the intent to engaging in commercial activity. The men, Morris Sotee and Momo Johnson, were arrested recently following government’s imposition of a ban on the sale of bush meat.This also serves as one of the measures to curb the spread of the Ebola disease across the country, an authority at the FDA has said. A charge sheet signed by the senior magistrate at the Bomi County Magisterial Court, Zuannah Darkoi, informed the Daily Observer via mobile phone over the weekend that Sotee and Johnson were traveling from Gbarpolu County to Monrovia when they were arrested by the FDA personnel at the Klay Checkpoint.They were later charged for being in possessing of a variety of dried bush meat.The charge noted that the vehicle carrying the two men, (license plate number BC 7941), was loaded with the meat.The charge sheet also stated that the defendants’ actions were in violation of Regulation 25 of the 1988 new Wildlife and National Park Law, and the recent ban on such commodities as announced by government.Meanwhile, Sotee and Momo have been released on bail awaiting court trial. In a related development, the Senior Senator of Grand Cape Mount County, Abel Massalay, has called on government to open “a humanitarian corridor” to areas affected by the Ebola Virus, where the movement of the people is restricted under the State of Emergency. He said this was necessary to allow the population access to food, medicine, water and other essentials during the lifespan of the emergency.Senator Massalay expressed fear that failure to open the corridor would result in a serious humanitarian crisis in the Ebola-affected areas, putting the health, safety and security of the people at risk.The Grand Cape Mount Senior Senator also admonished the government to ensure the reopening of all health centers shut down across the country due to the outbreak of the deadly disease to help reduce the increasing non-Ebola death rate among the people.Senator Massalay concluded that information available to him suggested that Liberians are dying from common curable diseases because they do not have access to good health facilities in their areas.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
In light of the alarming increase in interpersonal violence in Guyana, President David Granger is of the view that the issue needs to be dealt with at an early stage, especially among children and youths.President David GrangerSpeaking on the weekly televised programme – “The Public Interest” – which is aired on Fridays, the Head of State posited that there needs to be a collective effort among all stakeholders in society to tackle interpersonal crimes.“It is not a matter for the Police Force alone; various agencies have to come together – the Guyana Police Force, the State, civil society, and of course, families from various communities…something is happening in society and the Police Force cant solely solve the problem,” he stated.The President pointed out that a decade ago serious crimes were compounded by execution murders and murders stemming from drug-trade; whereas, these days persons are killing people they know such as boyfriends/girlfriends and even relatives. This, he said, is troubling while noting that another form of interpersonal violence that Guyana finds itself grappling with is suicide.According to the Guyanese Head of State, one way that the issue can be tackled is at the core institutions and so attention needs to be paid to what is happening within families and schools, where children are often exposed to acts of violence.“We need to pay attention to…what is taking place in these institutions,” he stated, noting that they may have a negative impact on the state of minds of children.In this regard, President Granger noted that he has asked the National Security Committee, which is comprised of heads of local law enforcement agencies, to work with the academia and other organisations to formulate a strategy aimed at addressing this societal scourge.“We are onto the problem and I expect in the months to come, we will start working with civil society on this,” Granger stated.However, he underscored the importance of social action and education on the issue of interpersonal violence. The President noted that while there may not be any specific policies in place to address this matter, the country needs to start teaching conflict resolutions and anger management skills in schools.Granger noted that not only in schools, but religious organisations should also take up the mantle and play its role in moulding members of society to be better people: “All five faiths must deal with anger management, deal with helping young people to manage relations and to manage conflicts…we need to do it at a national level…especially among young people.”In this vain, the Head of State posited that these institutions need to be given the tools to deliver such teachings and training.According to President Granger, Guyana and its people have been through a very dark and violent path, where criminal activities, such as murders, were rampant. He noted that children used to witness those dastardly acts and now that they are grown, they are imitating what they saw and experienced.“What we are seeing now…is the secondary impact of people, who witnessed the violence, having now themselves become violent…once you endure intense violence for so long, it is difficult to escape the psychological consequence,” he outlined.However, the President posited that Government will not ignore the issue as it is aware that the consequences of such exposure can be damaging.Over the past months, Guyana has experienced a hike in the spate of interpersonal crimes. The most recent case being Selina Ramotar, 29, of Lot 65 David Street, Kitty, Georgetown, who was stabbed at least 23 times last weekend. She is currently hospitalised while her perpetrator, her estranged child-father, Uttanpad Sewnarine, 39, has been charged and remanded to prison.This occurred just one week after a Crane, West Coast Demerara, man went berserk and fatally chopped his wife and two-year-old son.In another case, Gocool Danesh has been remanded for killing his wife Vanessa Sukram, 32, and their two-year-old son, Joel, while also severing one of the hands of his mother at their Crane Housing Scheme, West Coast Demerara home.Meanwhile, about a month ago, Dexter Jules, 23, of B Field, Sophia, stabbed to death by his brother, 27, during an argument.Another notable case of interpersonal violence that shocked the country was the murder of Roger Manikam, 64, whose gagged body was found along the Coldingen Railway Embankment, East Coast Demerara (ECD).The man’s two daughters, Nalinie, 18 and a 12-year-old were charged along with two others for his murder. The young girls claim that their father was a “pest” to their lives and even alleged that he molested them.
A young man has been charged with a hijacking of a car carrying the wife of Donegal’s GAA team doctor and her 10-year-old son.Bernadette Moran (37) was stopped at traffic lights in Dublin following the All-Ireland senior football championship quarter-final between Donegal and Kerry in Croke Park on August 5th.Ms Moran, who is married to Letterkenny surgeon Kevin Moran, was dragged from the car and it was driven away while her son was inside. Ms Moran managed to grab her son when the car stalled.The car was later discovered abandoned a short distance away.Yesterday, Christopher Coakley (20), of Empress Place in inner city Dublin, was charged with stealing Ms Moran’s car and with robbing her car keys at Mountjoy Square on August 5th.Garda Karl Byrne told Judge Bryan Smyth at Dublin District Court that Mr Coakley had been arrested at 12.02am yesterday and he was then charged with both offences.He said that Mr Coakley “made no reply to the charges after caution”, and he was kept in custody pending his court appearance.Garda Byrne also said there would be an objection to bail, and directions from the DPP needed to be obtained.Defence solicitor Aine Flynn said there would not be a bail application at this stage.She said Mr Coakley was “a vulnerable young person” and psychological assessments of him had been carried out previously.She asked the judge not to remand him to Cloverhill Prison but instead to St Patrick’s Institute, a detention centre in Dublin for young offenders.Judge Smyth said he would recommend that Mr Coakley was to be held there.He remanded him to appear again at the same court next Thursday.Legal aid was granted to Mr Coakley, who did not address the court.MAN CHARGED WITH HI-JACKING OF GAA TEAM DOCTOR’S CAR AFTER MATCH was last modified: September 7th, 2012 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:car hi-jackedDonegal GAA team doctorKevin Moran
