first_imgYoung golfing standout, Romaine Evans, is hoping his boys’ 17 and under Caribbean Amateur Golf Championships (CAGC) title, won in the US Virgin Islands recently, will be the start of a successful transition from amateur to the professional golf circuit.He scored rounds of 79, 78 and 74, while ending the championships on 231 strokes, four ahead of Rodrigo Sanchez of the Dominican Republic.Seventeen-year-old Evans’ victory is a significant milestone for Jamaica. The island had not won an individual golf title at the championships for more than 10 years.In a sport still considered one of the lesser disciplines here in Jamaica, Evans rose to the occasion and proved it was not where he was from, but where he is determined to go.good career start”It’s really one of the best things I have ever done in my whole golfing career … . To win this tournament is really a pleasure,” Evans told The Gleaner.”The Sandals Foundation has helped me a lot to fulfil my dreams and now it’s been overwhelming and pretty much a good start to my career,” he underlined.The Tacky High School student has been a Sandals Foundation member and received financial and moral support to go on to accomplish a national feat.Despite nearly six years’ experience, Evans admits he remains a raw talent, still learning and growing in the sport under the tutelage of coach Bill Williams.”My talent has grown, and every time I play a tournament, it just keeps on growing. I want to be a professional golfer, and I want to be a certified electrician in the future,” he said.Even after winning, Evans noted it was back to practice as always, at the Sandals Golf and Country Club.”My golf game will be there. I hope to tee off with Tiger Woods one of these mornings and beat him for sure,” he said of his pro career ambitions.Young Evans recalls that he was first introduced to the game at age 12. He accompanied a friend whose dad was the pro at a golf course. Now he is hoping to make it a career.shayne.fairman@gleanerjm.comlast_img read more

VANCOUVER, B.C. — Data on groundwater resources in the Peace Region has been released by Geoscience BC, aiming to improve understanding of shallow saline and non-saline aquifers in the area.A SkyTEM Survey Report was conducted in July and August of last year, over 43 days and 8,000 square kilometres between Hudson’s Hope, Fort St. John and Pink Mountain.Researchers flew 20,099 line-kilometres along 400 metre-spaced lines. To put that in perspective, that’s the equivalent of driving across Canada three times.- Advertisement -Carlos Salas, Vice President, Energy, Geoscience BC, says the information released today is raw data from the project’s airborne electromagnetic survey.“As we gain a better understanding of the geology of this region, Geoscience BC along with our partners will develop detailed maps of the area which will help First Nations, local communities, government and the resource sector make more transparent and informed decisions on sustainable groundwater management,” he said.Geoscience BC also released a report on its assessment of the shallow geology over the project area, which will be used to better understand the region’s geology and hydrogeology.

first_img0Shares0000Juventus’ forward from Portugal Cristiano Ronaldo scores a goal during the friendly football match between Juventus A and Juventus B at Villar Perosa, on August 12, 2018 at Villar Perosa. © AFP / Isabella BonottoMILAN, Italy, Aug 16 – Cristiano Ronaldo’s move to Juventus has injected an air of expectation into the Italian championship not felt in decades while spending has smashed the one billion euro mark with more than a day still to go before the transfer window closes.Champions Juventus top the spree with 235 million euros ($265 million) invested in new players — more than double rivals AS Roma and Napoli — as for the second straight year Serie A are the only one of the top five European leagues to keep pace with the big-spending English Premier League. With the transfer window slamming shut in Italy at 19:00 GMT on Friday, Serie A teams have time to overtake the 1.037 billion euros spent last summer.Here AFP Sport picks out six new signings to watch in the coming campaign.CRISTIANO RONALDO (JUVENTUS)Age: 33Position: ForwardPrevious club: Real Madrid (ESP)— Reigning seven-time Italian champions Juventus had the biggest scoop of the summer in five-time Ballon d’Or winner Ronaldo, who arrived from European champions Real Madrid in a shock 100 million euro deal.Massimiliano Allegri’s side are counting on the evergreen Portuguese superstar to help win the Champions League.Ronaldo has been the bogey man in Europe for Juventus in recent years, scoring 10 in seven games against the Serie A side for Real Madrid as the Spaniards romped to three straight Champions League titles.Ronaldo has thwarted Juve’s attempts to bag their first Champions League since 1996 in both of the last two seasons, earning a standing ovation from the Turin crowd for his superb overhead bicycle kick last season and scoring a brace in the 2017 final as Madrid thumped the Italians 4-1.GONZALO HIGUAIN (AC MILAN)Age: 30Position: StrikerOn loan from: Juventus (ITA)AC Milan’s Argentinian forward Gonzalo Higuain controls the ball during the Santiago Bernabeu Trophy football match between Real Madrid and AC Milan in Madrid on August 11, 2018. © AFP / GABRIEL BOUYS— Argentine international striker Higuain scored 40 goals in two seasons at Juventus, but with the arrival of Ronaldo has opted to head for rivals AC Milan on a one-year loan deal worth a reported 18 million euros that gives the Serie A club the option to buy the striker next summer for a further 36 million euros.Higuain’s arrival has revived enthusiasm around Milan after a troubled period marked by on-pitch embarrassment and financial woes.Last season they scored just 56 league goals as they finished sixth despite spending over 200 million euros on new players. This season they have spent a more modest 81 million euros so far.LEONARDO BONUCCI (JUVENTUS)Age: 31Position: Centre-backPrevious club: AC Milan (ITA)Juventus’ defender from Italy Leonardo Bonucci kicks the ball during the friendly football match between Juventus A and Juventus B at Villar Perosa, on August 12, 2018 at Villar Perosa. © AFP / Isabella Bonotto— Italy international defender Bonucci went back to Turin, where he previously won six Serie A titles and played in both of their lost European finals, after just one underwhelming season at Milan.The 31-year-old admitted that he left Juve in a fit of pique after falling out with Allegri in 2017, but “missed home” and wanted to return after burying the hatchet with the coach.SIMONE VERDI (NAPOLI)Age: 26Position: ForwardPrevious club: Bologna (ITA)— The Italian international forward was one of Carlo Ancelotti’s first signings as Napoli coach coming in for 23 million euros despite the Serie A runners-up trailing behind their rivals in the transfer market spending.A versatile player Verdi scored ten goals last season for Bologna who he joined after Carpi were relegated in 2016, having also previous played for Torino and his boyhood club AC Milan.JAVIER PASTORE (ROMA)Age: 29Position: MidfielderPrevious club: Paris Saint-Germain (FRA)Javier Pastore (R) of AS Roma vies for the ball with Erik Lamela of Tottenham Hotspur during their International Champions Cup match in San Diego, California on July 25, 2018, where Tottenham defeated Roma 4-1. © AFP / Frederic J. BROWN— Argentinian attacking midfielder Pastore returned to Italy on a 24.7-million-euro deal.The 29-year-old previously played in Serie A with Palermo from 2009-11 and was named the league’s young player of the season in 2010.The gifted playmaker was the first major signing PSG made in 2011 after being taken over by their Qatari owners.Pastore’s move back to Italy comes with Paris Saint-Germain under pressure from UEFA to balance their books after signing Neymar and Kylian Mbappe in blockbuster deals last season, sparking an audit of their financial affairs.RADJA NAINGGOLAN (INTER MILAN)Age: 30Position: MidfielderPrevious club: Roma (ESP)— The controversial Belgium international, looking for a new challenge after being snubbed for the World Cup, links up again with former Roma coach Luciano Spalletti, as Inter look to improve on a fourth-place in Serie A and compete in the Champions League for the first time since 2011-12.“I think I had my best season under Spalletti and I hope to do just as well here,” said Nainggolan who arrives on a four-year contract worth 38 million euros. “I hope we can do well both in Serie A and the Champions League because Inter have a proud history. Hopefully we’ll get back to those heights again now.”0Shares0000(Visited 6 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

first_img1 Wenger has one year remaining on his contract at the Emirates Arsene Wenger has not ruled out the possibility of managing England – but only after his contract with Arsenal expires.Wenger has been touted as one of the potential candidates to succeed Roy Hodgson, who last month resigned in the immediate aftermath of England’s 2-1 defeat to Iceland at the last-16 stage of the European Championship finals.However, the Frenchman, despite suggesting his interest in the vacant position, would want the Football Association to wait until the end of the 2016/17 season as he intends to honour the remaining months on his contract with Arsenal.“Could I manage England? Why not?,” Wenger told The Guardian.“I would never rule that out, but I am happy and focused in club football. I have one more year to go with Arsenal and I have been with them for a long time.“I have always respected all my contracts and will continue to do that. What will I do after that? Honestly, I don’t know.”In addition to Wenger, Sam Allardyce, Glenn Hoddle, Harry Redknapp and Eddie Howe are the leading English candidates with bookmakers, while United States boss and former Germany striker Jurgen Klinsmann is the current favourite.last_img read more

first_imgMembers of Donegal Youth Council will be heading to Romania shortly.Donegal Youth Council will travel to Romania shortly as part of a newly funded European Youth Democracy project. The Youth Council, along with regional partners Letterkenny YIC, have partnered with the “Romanian Youth Movement for Democracy” (RYMD) and “A Smile” Organization from the Bacau Region in Eastern Romania, to develop their “Democracy Builders” project, which will be financed by the European Commission through the Youth in Action Program.The “Democracy Builders” project will see the Donegal group travel to Bacau in Romania from 16th-24th July for a “Democracy Boot Camp” – a week long workshop in which 24 participants will learn and experience the concepts and methods related to activism and e–democracy through non-formal methods such as Forum Theater and digital storytelling. The project aims to raise awareness of young people in Bacau and Donegal on participatory democracy tools and to evaluate methods of youth participation.As part of the project each group will undertake research at regional level in order to identify how connected and able young people are to participate in democracy in their region.Following the Romania trip the partners involved will then work together to create “Tools & Skills for Participatory Democracy ” – a support material for young people who want to make their voice heard in public authorities and other forums.The project will also lead to the development of a “Participatory Democracy Hub” – a network of youth NGOs, which will provide a space for organisations who are open to the development of new projects on participatory democracy and the sharing of best practice between them. This project is funded with support from the European Commission. Donegal Youth Council is funded by Donegal County Council, HSE Health Promotion and the Department of Children and Youth Affairs and aims to provide young people with opportunities to identify, prioritise and work on topics and projects which have been identified by the wider youth population of the county.For more information on the Donegal Youth Council, you can contact Council Co-ordinator Marty Keeney on 087-6806676 or email youthcouncil@donegalyouthservice.ie. DONEGAL YOUTH COUNCIL HEAD TO ROMANIA FOR ‘DEMOCRACY BUILDERS’ PROJECT was last modified: July 3rd, 2014 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:donegalDonegal Youth CouncilRomanialast_img read more

first_imgA Donegal community group has had the threat of legal action dropped after the Government promised to pay money owed to the contractor who carried out works.Cllr Seamus O’DomhnaillThe Doe Community Association in Creeslough was facing legal action in the High Court for non-payment for works.The works in question were the Village enhancement of Creeslough village and a grant was sanctioned by the Miinister for environment to pay for the work. The Doe Community Association were simply the conduit by which the money was to be paid to the Contractor and DLDC were the lead partners for the project.It transpired in August 2012 that the Department of Environment came to the conclusion that the works should not be funded by the department as it was outside their remit, this after the same department had sanctioned the grant and work was almost completed.This left the Community group in a position where the contractor had to chase them up for the remainder of the payment because the department reneged on their previous sanction.Cllr Seamus O Domhnaill said the matter, which was first raised on Donegal Daily, has now been resolved. “To say that the community group felt distressed and angry is an understatement yet Minister Phil Hogan would not even agree to meet with the group or indeed engage with them.“The outstancding amount was in excess of €200 K and it appeared that this Government were happy to burden this amount onto a voluntary community group in Creeslough.Cllr. O’Domhnaill commented that “I had numerous meetings with the community group, DLDC who were partners as well as Donegal County Council who also played a role in the Village Enhancement process but it was virtually impossible to make progress when the Department refused to engage with the interested parties.“A last gasp Emergency meeting which I organised in mid December allowed the Group to plead and outline their difficulties once more to the County Manager as well as to Caoimhín Mac Aoidh of DLDC. “Further negotiations were the had between Donegal County Council and the Department and a resolution was finally arrived at yesterday afternoon.”The outstanding monies will now be paid out by the Department and it is hoped that the legal proceedings being brought by the contractor will be dropped as he will finally be paid. Cllr O Domhnaill said the Doe Community association are left distressed and extremely frustrated by this whole ordeal and the good work which was carried out through out this project have totally been overshadowed with the red tape and arrogance of the Department of the Environment.O’Domhnaill concluded by stating “I have been involved with this Community Association from the very first time the idea of Village enhancement was thought of for the Village, despite all of the difficulties I am pleased to have been able to actively work with the Group to solve this ridiculous situation that could have been solved by senior Government members at a much earlier stage.“I cannot commend and praise the Community Association enough in regards to their determination and hard work and I am personally delighted that this matter has been resolved. Thanks must also be paid to Seamus Neely & Mícheal O’Heanaigh of Donegal County Council who played an active role in the resolution as well as Caoimhin Mac Aoidh of DLDC.”CREESLOUGH COMMUNITY GROUP BREATHS SIGH OF RELIEF AS COMMUNITY CASH PROMISED was last modified: February 6th, 2014 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:Cllr Seamus O DomhnaillDoe Community Associationlast_img read more

first_imgCllr Patrick McGowan has demanded immediate action to tackle pot-holed roads across the Stranorlar area. Cllr McGowan has been lobbying roads management recently to offer overtime to roads crews as the evenings are getting brighter and on Saturday until the crises in our roads has been satisfactorily dealt with.He said “I welcome a recent response from the local roads office that there is a good possibility of temporary workers being hired to help catch with the potholes and drainage works but drivers are at breaking point when it comes to road. “Many roads in the Stranorlar MD have deteriorated since the beginning of the year due to a number of factors including prolonged snow/frost/rain and given the altitude of this MD it tends to get the brunt of the snow/frost.“There have been added problems with the ongoing maintenance of the N15 especially in Ballybofey & Stranorlar main streets up towards Cappry.“The Council has been in discussions with the NRO in relation to the N15 and I understand an emergency funding application is being finalised by them in relation to the Twin Towns Main Street.“In the interim the Area staff are monitoring this road regularly and pothole repairs are prioritised on it as the need arises. “A number of planned footpath improvement works and other DCS works have been suspended for the next number of weeks in order to put additional staff on maintenance works, given the large number of complaints of potholes across the MD.“I have also been advised that the Council would be carrying out early surfacing of the storm-damaged roads to reduce maintenance and confirmed that contracts have commenced.The decision on additional resources including staff and machinery will be decided this week, is to be welcomed,” said Cllr McGowanHe said Claire McGeever, local roads manager, has committed to keeping the situation under review and acknowledge the large number of pothole complaints that elected members and staff are getting everyday.He added that the recent Dail motion by Fianna Fáil deputies supported by SF demanding an increase in roads maintenance funding must be acted on by the Government.“People are paying through the nose for car insurance , property tax , car tax, VRT , petrol , diesel vat and are expected to NCT their vehicles while all the time driving through pot holed roads , it has to stop and the Minister need to forget creating more congesting in Cities and start maintaining our existing roads,” said Cllr McGowan .
