Cricket News Cricket Australia’s ‘arrogant’, ‘controlling’ culture led to ball-tampering scandal in Cape Town, reveals review

first_imgNew Delhi: A review into a ball-tampering scandal has condemned an “arrogant” and “controlling” culture at Cricket Australia that led to players cheating in pursuit of victory.    The independent review by the Sydney-based Ethics Centre accused Cricket Australia (CA) of only paying lip service to the spirit of the game, leaving players without any moral guidance.  Read More | Ayodhya Land Dispute: Hindus losing their patience on the Ram temple issue, says Giriraj Singh”Responsibility for that larger picture lies with CA and not just the players held directly responsible for the appalling incident at Newlands,” said the review, which was released on Monday.   The scandal involved Australian players using sandpaper to alter the flight of the ball in a Test match against South Africa last March at Cape Town’s Newlands Stadium.  Read More | LIVE | Rahul Gandhi in MP: Congress chief says farm loans will be waived off within 10 days of pollsCoach Darren Lehmann quit in the wake of the controversy and then-captain Steve Smith, deputy David Warner and batsman Cameron Bancroft were banned from the game.   However, the Australian Cricket Association has called for the cheating bans of Warner, Smith and Bancroft to be slashed because they were put under too much pressure by administrators.The players’ union painted the three Test stars as victims of circumstance and said they should be free to take the field again at the top level after the inquiry slammed Cricket Australia’s handling of the case.The scandal also claimed the scalps of CA chief executive James Sutherland and team performance boss Pat Howard. The review, which was partially redacted to prevent individuals being identified, included complaints from those involved in the sport that there was a bullying culture in elite men’s cricket.   “The broad consensus amongst stakeholders is that CA does not consistently ‘live’ its values and principles,” it said.   “CA is perceived to say one thing and do another. The most common description of CA is as ‘arrogant’ and ‘controlling’.”   It said under such circumstances, the ball-tampering scandal was foreseeable but CA failed to act. CA chairman David Peever said the review provided an opportunity for the body to “look in the mirror”.   “It has been a difficult and confronting time for everyone involved in Australian cricket, and for that I am sorry,” he said.   “Mistakes have been made, lessons have been learnt, and changes are and will continue to take place.”   Peever indicated he would not be joining the exodus from CA and said the 12-month bans on Smith and Warner and a nine-month ban on Bancroft would stand.

first_imgKeanan Patershuk and KIJHL leading playoff scorer Ryan Edwards gave Beaver Valley the two-goal advantage in the second period.But Stuart Walton and Jamie Vlanich, the latter scoring with 16 seconds remaining in the frame, tied the game for Castlegar.In the third the Hawks once again took control on goals by Dallas Calvin and Arie Postmus four minutes into the period.But Hunter Jenerou cut the margin to 4-3 midway through the period before Brenden Heinrich tied the game three minutes later to force overtime.The first 10 minutes solved nothing before Bartlett, finishing the game with two points, sent the screaming Castlegar fans home happy with his fifth goal of the post season.GAME NOTES: Castlegar out shot Beaver Valley 54-29 in the game to make a winner out of netminder Jordan Gluck . . . .Last season, Justin Niminiken scored in the dying minutes of the game to snap a 3-3 tie and spark the Hawks to a 5-3 Game seven win against Castlegar in Fruitvale.

first_imgSINGLE WINNING TICKET IN PICK SIX PAYS $85,158.60 ARCADIA, Calif. (Jan. 16, 2016)–Favored Taris made short work of her competition in Saturday’s Grade II, $200,000 La Canada Stakes at Santa Anita, as she took command mid-way around the far turn under Gary Stevens and cruised to a 5 ¼ length victory while getting 1 1/16 miles in 1:44.38.Trained by Simon Callaghan, the 5-year-old Kentucky-bred mare by Flatter sat a comfortable third leaving the half mile pole and engaged dueling leaders Illuminant and Yahilwa approaching the three furlong pole.“It was a perfect trip,” said Stevens. “It set up, the fractions were realistic and when Mike (Smith, aboard second choice Yahilwa) came up on the outside of me going into the far turn, the pressure really picked up.“She reminds me of Beholder. She has the same tendencies, the same high cruising speed and they’re both very intelligent. She deserved this today.”In a race reduced to five older fillies and mares due to the game-day declarations of Tara’s Tango and Honey Ride, Taris, who was well beaten in her only other career try going two turns, was heavily favored at even money and paid $4.00, $260 and $2.10.Owned by John Magnier, Derrick Smith or Michael Tabor, Taris followed up on a 2 ½ length score going a one turn mile in the Grade III Go for Wand Handicap Nov. 27 at Aqueduct and registered her seventh win from 11 career starts. With the winner’s share of $120,000, she increased her earnings to $807,700.“I was a little anxious down the backside when she just took hold of the bridle a little bit,” said Callaghan. “She’s such a smart filly. She just dropped it then and relaxed. I kind of knew there were no worries about the distance.“Gary knows this filly, not quite as good as me, but almost. I left it to him. It was one of those races with five runners where I didn’t know where the pace would be. I thought someone might try to take us on, so we just left it to Gary to see how the race unfolded.”Ridden for the first time by Drayden Van Dyke, Birdatthewire, who was stretching out off a half length win in the Grade I, seven furlong La Brea Stakes on Dec. 26, was bothered by longshot Oscar Party going into the first turn.“I was completely taken out by Santiago (Gonzalez, aboard Oscar Party),” said Van Dyke, in reference to the fact that Oscar Party’s bridle broke, leaving Gonzalez rudderless. “I didn’t know what was happening at first. He came flying by me, which made my horse get really rank. Poor Santiago though, it wasn’t his fault, but I got stuck outside of him and he was way out there.”Despite the trouble, Birdatthewire was a close second going into the far turn, but fell far back straightening for home due to the fact she has a habit of getting out. Although she appeared hopelessly beaten a furlong from home, she rallied wide-out for second, finishing 1 ¼ lengths in front of Yahilwa.Off at 7-2, Birdatthewire paid $3.40 and $2.20.Ridden by Mike Smith, Yahilwa pressed the pace and tired late to finish a half length in front of Illuminant. Off at 9-5, Yahilwa paid $2.10 to show.Fractions on the race were 23.93, 47.35, 1:11.71 and 1:37.51.There was just one winning ticket in Saturday’s Pick Six, and it paid $85,158.60. The ticket was purchased at an as-yet undetermined location.First post time for a nine-race card on Sunday is at 12:30 p.m. Admission gates will open 10:30 a.m. FAVORED TARIS TAKES GRADE II, $200,000 LA CANADA STAKES BY 5 ¼ LENGTHS AS STEVENS & CALLAGHAN TEAM FOR WIN; MARE BY FLATTER GETS 1 1/16 MILES IN 1:44.38 center_img –30–last_img read more

Under 400 of 7000 UG students voted in UGSS elections

first_imgAlthough the University of Guyana (UG) has more than 7000 students, it was announced at a recent installation ceremony, that under 400 students participated in the election process to select a new President for the University’s Students’ Society.New UGSS President, Devta RamroopThis is according to a Registrar, Dr Nigel Gravesande, who shared remarks during the brief ceremony convened at the University’s Turkeyen Campus.“Student governance here at the University of Guyana generally goes unnoticed by the average UG student but your efforts are felt everywhere on our two campuses and four centres… having less than 400 students participating in a democratic process that involves in excess of 7000 students needs us to urge and work assiduously to do better next time,” he said.Gravesande told Guyana Times that the number of students who participated in the election process happens to be about the same each year, although he hopes the number of voters can be increased.“I wanted to see much greater involvement in the democratic process, its important and I hope that as the years go, progress that we would have a larger turn out to select the representatives that will lead the governance structure of the students,” the Registrar added.He said he believes it is because the students try to stay focused that they choose not to participate in such events, although it does not take away their focus.Nevertheless, the University had its new President of the student body sworn in. Elected to serve was Devta Ramroop of the Faculty Natural of Sciences. Along with her, several other representatives were elected to serve in various capacities.Ramroop will be responsible for making representations on behalf of her fellow students at decision-making meetings and at other forums.She was also elected to serve in the capacity of a faculty representative in Natural Sciences.She was warned by the past President of the UGSS that she will no longer have time for herself as it will go towards the development of the University, even as he congratulated her.While giving her remarks, the newly elected UGSS President expressed how happy she was to be appointed to the position, as a female.According to her, “In recent years women throughout the world have been tirelessly working towards breaking the glass ceiling. At nearly every decision-making firm in our country, men have been the dominant voices, I mean nothing is wrong with that but today I stand on the strong shoulders of two females Presidents before me… the 16-year drought is finally over.”Ramroop said she hopes her sincere service will embolden others to rise to take up the challenge as well.last_img read more

Whittier produces balanced budget

first_imgIn 2004, the city did not replace city employees who quit or retired and cut all departments by 3.2 percent. But since fiscal 2003-04, revenue has grown by nearly 20 percent. In this year, revenue is expected to increase by nearly $4 million. Property taxes are expected to grow by 11.6 percent and sales tax by about 4 percent. “We think that the housing market will be slower, but with property still changing hands there will be increases in property values,” said Rod Hill. The renovated Whittwood Town Center continues to drive sales tax increase, he said. Helvey is asking for few changes, including turning a part-time graffiti worker’s position into full-time. He also wants to turn four part-time jobs into two, including the City Hall receptionist and administrative secretary to the controller. [email protected] (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3022 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! While the general fund projects a $1 million surplus, much of that money could be eaten up by pay raises. No money is included for pay increases which still must be negotiated with the city’s two unions. Negotiations haven’t begun in earnest yet, but Helvey will get direction at Saturday’s meeting from the council. A 1 percent pay raise would cost the city about $300,000. Until last year, the budget picture wasn’t so good. Two years ago, the council cut 2 percent from all of the departments, eliminated the annual fireworks show and closed the city’s two libraries on Sundays in 2005. WHITTIER – With increasing revenue – mostly from property and sales tax – City Manager Steve Helvey’s proposed $95.3 million city budget for fiscal 2007-08 is balanced with no proposed cuts. This will be the second straight year, the council won’t be asked to make cuts and it might even make some restorations, such as opening the Central Library on Sundays. “It’s conservative, but it’s balanced,” said Rod Hill, the city controller. “We’ve tried to maintain existing service levels.” The City Council will study the budget in a special session at 8 a.m. Saturday at City Hall council chambers. last_img read more

Half-time: Fulham 2 Aston Villa 0 – Berbatov inspires brilliant Whites

first_imgA Steve Sidwell strike and a Dimitar Berbatov penalty have put Fulham in a commanding position at the break.Sidwell netted the opener against his former club on 21 minutes, latching on to Giorgos Karagounis’s pass before slipping it past Villa keeper Brad Guzan.Berbatov, outstanding in the first 45 minutes, then fired home from the spot after Ashkan Dejagah tumbled under Leandro Bacuna’s challenge.Fulham’s fluid movement in attack has asked constant questions of a retreating Villa defence.In the opening minutes, Berbatov saw a header tipped on to the post by Guzan, while Kacaniklic had a curling effort cleared off the line by Nathan Baker.The visitors’ only chances of note came while the match was still goalless, with Christian Benteke sending a glancing header across goal and forcing a stop from Maarten Stekelenburg.Late in the first half, Bacuna sent a free-kick from just outside the penalty well wide of goal.Fulham: Stekelenburg; Riether, Hughes, Senderos, Riise; Dejagah, Parker, Karagounis, Sidwell, Kačaniklić; Berbatov.Subs: Stockdale, Zverotic, Richardson, Kasami, Duff, Ruiz, Christensen.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 Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

South African heroines in the spotlight

first_img10 August 2010In celebration of Women’s Month in South Africa, the Department of Arts and Culture has launched a number of initiatives to honour female icons who helped shape a more democratic society.South Africa holds its Women’s Month in August, with a public holiday on the ninth, to pay tribute to the more than 20 000 South African women who marched to the Union Buildings on that date in 1956 to protest against the unjust pass laws which enforced racial segregation.MediaClubSouthAfricaFree high-resolution photos and professional feature articles from Brand South Africa’s media service. This peaceful demonstration was led by apartheid activists Lilian Ngoyi, Helen Joseph, Rahima Moosa and Sophie de Bruyn, and put women at the forefront of the political struggle.“Through their actions, they helped to lay the foundations for the building of a non-racial, non-sexist and democratic country,” Arts and Culture Minister Lulu Xingwana said at her department’s Women’s Month launch in Johannesburg on 3 August.Women have always played a central role in the socio-economic development of society, but their roles have often been overlooked, the minister said.“The programmes we are launching are to declare that women also made a contribution.”Graves become heritage sitesThe department and the South African Heritage Resources Agency will declare the graves of Joseph, Ngoyi and fellow freedom fighter Charlotte Maxeke national heritage sites on 20 August. “This is part of the national legacy projects which honour the forgotten and unsung heroines of the liberation struggle,” Xingwana said.The ceremony will take place in Soweto, where Joseph and Ngoyi are buried. “The programme will include a church service, speeches and the unveiling of site plaques,” the minister added.Dulcie September Memorial LectureA day before this ceremony, on 19 August, the department, in partnership with the University of the Western Cape, will host a memorial lecture in the name of another anti-apartheid icon, Dulcie September, who was assassinated in 1988 while in exile in France.“Through this lecture the government acknowledges her contribution towards the liberation of the people of South Africa,” said Xingwana.The lecture will be delivered by award-winning British writer and editor Margaret Busby, with guest speakers Dr John Daniel – a researcher from the Human Sciences Research Council – and South African ambassador to the US, Barbra Masekela.Xingwana said this lecture was a symbol of her department’s commitment to women: “We constantly see lectures recognising male heroes and rarely do we have lectures about women.”Women writers unite“We will host a women writers’ symposium under the theme ‘Women’s words, African worlds’, renewing a dialogue between African women writers and women of African descent,” Xingwana said at the launch.The gathering will take place from 25 to 26 August at two Johannesburg venues: the Windybrow Theatre and Museum Africa. It will focus on fiction and non-fiction writing, journalism and the formation of an African Women Writers’ Network.Invited writers who will participate in the symposium include Tsitsi Dangarembga of Zimbabwe, Lola Shoneyin of Nigeria, Shailja Patel of Kenya and Lauretta Ngcobo, Miriam Tlali and Elinor Sisulu from South Africa.Sarah Bartmann rememberedTo reaffirm the often marginalised history, heritage and culture of the indigenous Khoi and San Bushmen of South Africa, the department will unveil the design for the Sarah Bartmann Centre of Remembrance, on the 22 August in Hankey, in the Eastern Cape province.Bartmann was a Khoi slave who was lured to London in 1810 and put on show as a “scientific curiosity”, owing to her physical features that were perceived by Europeans as “freakish”.She was later moved to Paris, where she was exhibited by an animal trainer in severely degrading displays intended for public amusement.She died in France in December 1815 and her remains were exhibited in a museum there until 1974.Years later, then president of South Africa Nelson Mandela requested that her remains be returned. This was done, and on 9 August 2002 Bartmann was buried in Hankey, the town of her birth.SA women shine at Shanghai ExpoThe country is currently taking part in the six-month-long Shanghai World Exhibition, for which the Department of Arts and Culture developed a programme to showcase the talents of South African women artists and performers.Each country participating in the Shanghai Exhibition is allocated a national day – and South Africa has chosen 9 August. “As part of celebrating our national day we will hoist the South African flag,” said Xingwana.Prominent South African female musicians, including Debra Fraser, Loveline Madumo, Sibongile Khumalo and Thandiswa Mazwai, will perform at the event.Beyond Women’s MonthAll programmes launched will be sustained beyond the month of August to help empower and inspire women, Xingwana said, adding that “freedom is not complete until women are free from all forms of abuse, poverty, and deprivation”.First published by – get free high-resolution photos and professional feature articles from Brand South Africa’s media service.last_img read more
