DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (CMC): West Indies opener Chris Gayle failed with a first ball ‘duck’ as his Lahore Qalanders lost their second straight game in the Pakistan Super League, with a heavy nine-wicket defeat to Peshawar Zalmi Saturday. The left-hander was bowled by left-arm seamer Junaid Khan off the first ball of the contest at Dubai International Stadium and his dismissal set the tone for the innings, which ambled to 117 for six off 20 overs. West Indies all-rounder Dwayne Bravo came to his side’s rescue with a top score of 32 off 31 balls, while captain and opener Azhar Ali chimed in with 31 off 41 deliveries. Bravo struck two fours and a six and posted a crucial 44 for the sixth wicket with Hammad Azam who made 18 not out. Zalmi then cruised to their target with four overs left, with opener Tamim Iqbal stroking an unbeaten 55 off 47 deliveries. He put on 95 off 68 balls for the first wicket with Mohammed Hafeez, who struck 43 from 37 balls. In Saturday’s other game, West Indies opener Lendl Simmons failed as Karachi Kings slipped to an eight-wicket loss to Quetta Gladiators. The right-handed Simmons scored 11 in Kings’ 147 for seven off their 20 overs. Englishman Ravi Bopara top-scored with 40 from 29 balls.
Despite her excellent post-Olympic form to date, Jamaican swimmer Alia Atkinson had to settle for the silver medal in the 50m breaststroke at the FINA World Short Course Championship in Windsor, Canada, yesterday. Atkinson, who went into the final with the fastest time (29.09), was hoping to avenge her Olympic disappointment and beat the Olympic gold medallist, Lilly King. But she had to take second in a time of 29.11 as King posted a time of 28.92 to take the gold and become only the fourth woman to go under 29 seconds in that event. King was expected to present Atkinson with her toughest challenge along with teammate Molly Hannis, one of the other women to break the 29-second barrier. But the American, King, produced her best performance in the event and even went sub-29 seconds for the victory. Atkinson had a disappointing Olympic Games in Brazil, where she placed eighth in the 100m breaststroke final. The world champion and record holder was hoping to celebrate her return to top form with victory in Canada yesterday and put her below-par performance in Brazil behind her. Two weeks following her anti-climax in Rio, she dismantled a top field to again tie the world record on day one of the 2016 FINA World Cup in Chartres, France. Then in October at the World Cup Tour in Tokyo, Japan, she bettered the field and shaved a 16th of a second off the 50 short course world record to solely own the new mark of 28.64. But apart from holding two world records, Atkinson is only one of four women who have gone under the 29-second barrier in the 50 SCM breaststroke along with Russia’s Yulia Efimova and American Molly Hannis, and now they have been joined by King.

The fish processing plant at Mabaruma, Region One (Barima-Waini), will be completed and commissioned in May to deliver seafood to nearby communities and the coastland.This is according to the Junior Indigenous Peoples’ Affairs Minister, Valerie Garrido-Lowe who told Guyana Times on Monday that works are progressing at the facility.While the construction is nearing completion, the relevant equipment is yet to be procured.“We’re trying to get that completed early, at least by the first week in May. We want to finish the construction and furnish so commissioning would be done in early May. We already have our quotations for the equipment,” she stated.Garrido-Lowe had stated last year that fisherfolks were finding it difficult to sell fresh seafood in the communities so provisions were made through this project to allow persons to process their goods.Budgeted at $10 million, the initiative is one of three community development projects that were established throughout the region. The coffee and cassava processing projects in Moruca are the two others.For now, 15 farmers are preparing to transplant some 12,000 coffee plantlets onto one acre of land. But the reaping time for this produce is 30 months and the residents have just completed two months of that time.“The plants will be transplanted in the ground soon. It’s close to 12,000 trees on one-acre land. The coffee is a two and a half year project. It’s only two months old now. It’s looking good and healthy,” Garrido-Lowe explained.Earlier last year, it was mentioned that the plants were sourced from Brazil and these farmers will intercrop until they can reap the coffee beans.“With the coffee, the seeds are being brought from Brazil. NAREI will germinate it and the farmers already cleared their lands to plant. They would have to do intercropping because, with coffee farming, you can reap until next year and a half or two. So they would do intercropping with peas, melon and cassava.”The aim of this project is to become a coffee producing nation. As such, there have been partnerships with the Social Protection Ministry, the Business Ministry and the Agricultural Ministry through the National Agricultural Research and Extension Institute (NAREI) and the New Guyana Marketing Corporation (GMC). The Business Ministry will be responsible for packaging and production.

A pensioner who battered his next-door neighbour in an ongoing feudhas been remanded in jail while a Judge decides what sentence to give him.Patrick Gill, 69, admitted to brutally attacking Seamus Morrison athis home in Buncrana. When Gardai called to the home of Mr. Morrison at St Vincent’s Villasin Buncrana on February 17th, 2016, they found him covered in blood.He had lacerations to his ear, his forehead and to the top of his head.He claimed that when he was returning from doing some shopping ataround 4 pm, he was attacked by Gill who was carrying a black kitchenknife.However, Letterkenny Circuit Court court was told the knife was notused in the attack.Garda Conor McClafferty said that when interviewed just minutes afterthe incident, Gill was also suffering from a bloody nose and two blackeyes.Judge John Aylmer was told that this was the second time that Gill,also of St Vincent’s Villas, had attacked Mr. Morrison.On the last occasion in August, 2007, Gill assaulted Morrison and thecourt replaced a sentence of six months in prison with 100 hourscommunity service.Another charge of producing an article (a hatchet) during the assaultwas taken into account.The court was told the men had fallen out more than 10 years ago whenthey first met and it centred around a relationship which one of themwas in.Barrister for Gill, Sean Mac Aoidh, said his client was a separatedfather of three who had an addiction to alcohol but stressed there hadbeen no further altercations between the men since this incident.The accused told the court that he was sorry for what he had done.He said “I want to tell Mr. Morrison that I’m sorry and it won’thappen again. We just pass on the road and there’s no difficulty now.”However, Judge John Aylmer said that Gill had already been given achance by the courts.He remanded Gill in custody until Friday to decide what sentence hewill impose in the case.He said “This is the second time that Mr. Gill has come before thecourt on a serious charge. The last time it was a hatchet and now it’sa knife. He was given a chance 7 years ago – but clearly, that did notteach Mr. Gill a sufficient lesson.“Mr. Gill has put the court in extremely awkward position and it isdifficult to see how a custodial sentence can be avoided.“But I’m not going to shoot from the hip. I will remand in custodyuntil Friday and will decide what to do.”Pensioner remanded in jail for battering his neighbour in ongoing dispute was last modified: December 12th, 2017 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:assaultattackbuncranadonegalneighbourPatrick Gillrow
