Challenging, difficult, rough were some of the words that were used to describe the pitch that forced an abandonment of the third Jamaica Scorpions four-day trial match at Sabina Park yesterday.The pitch, which was into its second day when the umpires, in consultation with the national coaching staff decided to call off the match inside the first over, resulted in at least two players receiving body bruises and injury.They are batsmen AndrÈ McCarthy, who was hit on the finger on day one, and had to retire hurt, and Shacaya Thomas, who was hit five times, two to the head, two to the hand, and one on his fingers.”I can’t recall getting hit five times in a game,” said Thomas, who was 56 not out overnight, and was looking to score his first century of the trials on the day.”It was really a difficult pitch batting. I got hit twice on my head, twice on my hand, and one on my fingers.”Few balls bowledThe encounter, which was the third of six scheduled ahead of the start of the upcoming WICB Professional League, was called off after four balls were bowled yesterday by fast bowler Jason Dawes of John Campbell’s XI.Campbell’s XI made a paltry 124 on the opening day, with Paul Palmer’s XI responding with 84 for one when stumps were drawn.Palmer’s XI added another two runs to their overnight total, with young wicketkeeper, Kemar Marshall unbeaten on three when the umpires intervened.”A ball that you would normally look to come forward to, would just pop up, and, bounce over your head,” noted 26-year-old Thomas.”Judging the length of a delivery, as well, was also difficult to predict, in terms of going forward or back.”McCarthy, in the meanwhile, who was hit on the thumb on the first day and had to retire hurt, but was planning to resume batting on day two, said the pitch was a problem from the outset.”Balls were moving around and misbehaving from the first session on the opening day, when my team was in the field,” he explained.”But there was then a lot of rolling of the wicket during the lunch and tea breaks, and after play, and everybody kept anticipating that as the match went on it would play better.”The fourth two-day trial match is scheduled to begin next Tuesday.

India’s Sajan Prakash swims in his heat of the men’s 100m butterfly during the swimming competition at the 18th Asian Games in Jakarta, Indonesia, Wednesday, Aug. 22, 2018. (AP Photo/Lee Jin-man)JAKARTA, Indonesia — After what Sajan Prakash has endured over the past week, the swimming competition at the Asian Games seems trivial.Yet it’s the one thing that has helped keep him in a reasonable frame of mind.ADVERTISEMENT Firefighters tackle large blaze outside Asian Games venue “I couldn’t contact those people who are affected but I’ve been in contact with my relatives who are outside of Kerala and they said ‘we’re all safe so not to worry,’” he said. “But being with my teammates is different from being alone.“They kept me entertained and focused for the meet.”With the reassurance of his mother and his teammates, Prakash made swimming his priority after accepting that there was nothing he could do change the situation at home.His single-minded approach worked. He became the first Indian to make a final at the Asian Games in 32 years when he finished fifth in the 200 meters butterfly.On Wednesday, his relief was even more evident when he helped India reach the 4×100-meter freestyle final.ADVERTISEMENT Peza offers relief to ecozone firms MOST READ Judy Ann’s 1st project for 2020 is giving her a ‘stomachache’ View comments Will you be the first P16 Billion Powerball jackpot winner from the Philippines?

After receiving proposals from the Opposition and Government side, Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM) Chair retired Justice Claudette Singh will make a final decision on the timeframe for elections today and communicate same to President David Granger.President David GrangerGECOM Chair Retired Justice Claudette SinghThis was announced by both Opposition and Government-nominated Commissioners at the conclusion of a meeting on Wednesday. Opposition-nominated Commissioner Sase Gunraj first made the announcement that Justice Singh would be making her decision in the morning.Afterwards, Commissioner Vincent Alexander elaborated on what took place at Wednesday’s meeting. He noted that fellow Government Commissioner Charles Corbin and Gunraj made presentations on various timelines for holding elections.“Commissioner Corbin made a written proposal, which proposed March (2020), with possible negotiations to bring it down to an earlier time. Now it’s up to the Chairman to make a determination, which she said she would do after studies and contacting advisers, an announcement will be made,” Alexander said.Alexander further explained that Corbin had proposed that the encoding of registrants’ data that was gathered during GECOM’s House-to-House Registration could be done concurrently with the extraction of a preliminary list and Claims and Objections.Meanwhile, GECOM later released a statement in which it said that Commissioners Gunraj, Robeson Benn and Bibi Shadick insisted on a November 2019 date for the holding of elections, while Commissioner Corbin made his proposal.“Justice Singh undertook to study the submission, consult with the Secretariat, and based on all the information available to her make a decision on the way forward. Justice Singh will communicate this decision to the President in accordance with the mandate of the Commission (today),” GECOM said in the statement.While the Opposition has insisted elections could be held this year, the Government Ccommissioners have been pushing for elections next year. President David Granger has, meanwhile, repeatedly said that he was awaiting the advice of GECOM before he can set an election date, despite Article 61 of the Constitution of Guyana empowering him to dissolve Parliament and set a set for elections.The responsibility for GECOM to set a date, instead of him, was again repeated in an address to the nation on Monday following a meeting with Carter Center representatives – a meeting during which he promised the organisation not to delay but to act swiftly once GECOM advises him.During the address, President Granger repeated the substance of previous statements; that GECOM is an independent agency and that he has to await advice from GECOM before he can name an election date.The constitutional deadline for holding elections, as set out by the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ), has meanwhile expired as of Wednesday. When it made its July 18 ruling on the no confidence cases, the CCJ had said that the effect of the No-Confidence Motion was on pause while the cases were being litigated.That process, CCJ President Adrian Saunders had clearly said, was no longer on pause following the court’s June 18, 2019 ruling, which upheld the validity of the No-Confidence Motion and, thus, triggered the need for fresh elections.In keeping with the constitutional three-month provision once a No-Confidence Motion is passed, this would mean that General and Regional Elections should have been held on or before September 18, 2019.
12 In: Riyad Mahrez (Leicester) – £6.5m – Click the right arrow for more advice – Riyad Mahrezs fantastic early season performances appeared to have dropped off a few weeks ago, however, the Algerian has now recorded two assists in his last two games. With Leicester facing a relatively easy run of fixtures, Mahrez will have the opportunity to build on this and once again return to his point-scoring best. The League Cup is a Fantasy Premier League manager’s nightmare.Well, every competition in which your players could get injured is a nightmare, but this week that competition was the League Cup and for those of us who had Theo Walcott in our sides – it’s been a ‘mare!At first it looked like he would be rested, but then, after a team-mate’s injury, Walcott was thrust into the action on a cold Tuesday night in Sheffield despite having not been allowed the proper amount of time to warm up.The inevitable happened and he’s out for three weeks, so now we’re here. Click through this gallery to find out who the best possible replacements for Walcott are, while also getting the lowdown on all the other transfers you might need to make this week.Check out the Fantasy Premier League transfers you might need to make this week by clicking the right arrow above… 12 Out: Theo Walcott (Arsenal) – £8.6m – Click the right arrow for more advice – For those of us who had Theo Walcott in our sides, it has been a nightmare week. The Arsenal forward picked up an injury in the club’s League Cup defeat on Tuesday and will be out for just under a month. Out: Bafetimbi Gomis (Swansea) – £6.9m – Click the right arrow for more advice – A player whose early season form has definitely dropped off is Swanseas Bafetimbi Gomis. All of Gomis four goals so far this season all came within his first four games! Since then the striker has gone six without a Premier League goal. Out: Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (Arsenal) – £5.6m – Click the right arrow for more advice – Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is the man whose injury led to Theo Walcott joining him in the treatment room when he replaced his team-mate less than five minutes into the Sheffield Wednesday game. Although it would be fairly harsh to drop him just for this, youre going to have to take him out of your fantasy team regardless as it is expected he will be out for just under a month too. In: Bacary Sagna (Manchester City) – £5.4m – Click the right arrow for more advice – Zabaletas replacement in the City side will surely be Bacary Sagna; he should probably be the replacement in your fantasy team, too. 12 12 12 12 Out: Memphis Depay (Manchester United) – £8.0m – Click the right arrow for more advice – Almost 10 per cent of you Fantasy Premier League managers out there still have Memphis Depay in your teams. What are you thinking!? Not only is the Dutchman an injury doubt for Uniteds trip to Crystal Palace this week, but he also has not found any sort of consistent form for the Red Devils since signing in the summer. Out: Pablo Zabaleta (Manchester City) – £5.8m – Click the right arrow for more advice – It seems the curse of the League Cup didnt just strike at Arsenal this week, as Pablo Zabaleta suffered a recurrence of his previous knee injury on Wednesday night. It is unknown how long the Argentine will be out for. 12 In: Dimitri Payet (West Ham) – £8.3m – Click the right arrow for more advice – A similarly priced replacement for Theo Walcott in your midfield is West Hams in form Frenchman Dimitri Payet. He has scored two goals and been credited with an assist in his last three games, as he continues to thrive in England. In: Mesut Ozil (Arsenal) – £8.6m – Click the right arrow for more advice – With almost no other midfielders left due to injury, it is certain Mesut Ozil will be starting for Arsenal over the next few weeks! The questions lie in whether the German can retain his current form Ozil has a goal and FOUR assists in his last THREE league games for the Gunners, but is well known for his inconsistency. 12 12 Out: Phil Jagielka (Everton) – £5.4m – Click the right arrow for more advice – Evertons Phil Jagielka was another defender hit by a knee injury this week. The problem, which occurred in last Saturdays match against Arsenal, will keep the centre-back out of action for over two months. 12 12 In: Jeffrey Schlupp (Leicester City) – £5.0m – Click the right arrow for more advice – A suitable replacement for Jagielka could be Leicesters Jeffrey Schlupp. The Ghanaian left back offers the prospect of earning points at both ends of the pitch having already scored a goal and been credited with an assist in this years campaign. 12 In: Harry Kane (Spurs) – £9.3m – Click the right arrow for more advice – In stark contrast, Harry Kane is a player who seems to be starting to turn his poor early season form around. Last weeks hat-trick has made Kane one of the most desirable players for Fantasy Premier League managers ahead of the upcoming gameweek.

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week The Thunderbirds gained 357 yards on the ground, including 120 from Girtley, 80 and a touchdown from John Keyes and 92 and a TD from Aaron Cornejo. Zach Hafner and Girtley have shared the quarterback job this season, with Hafner playing the first half against Rialto. But Hafner went down with an ankle injury (not believed to be serious) and Girtley played the entire second half at QB. Yucaipa led 7-6 in the third quarter when Keyes broke loose for a 9-yard touchdown run, which ultimately stood up as the game winner. Rialto (1-5, 1-2) did its own QB shuffle as DeyJuan Hemmings played much of the game at the position, but missed a few series after getting banged up. However, it was Hemmings scoring on defense – on a 30-yard interception return with 7:13 left in the game – that brought the Knights close. A two-point conversion run, though, was stopped. Versatile Pierre Girtley helped the Yucaipa High School football team to a 14-12 victory against Rialto on Friday night. The victory, at Carter High School, was the first of the season for the Thunderbirds (1-5, 1-2). Hemmings led the Knights with 53 yards on five carries and scored one TD on the ground, besides his interception return. He also completed 7 of 12 passes for 58 yards. Yucaipa plays at 7:30 p.m. Friday against visiting Redlands East Valley. Rialto is at A.B. Miller on Friday. SERRANO 30, RIDGECREST BURROUGHS 27: The visiting Diamondbacks trailed 27-10 with 1:30 left in the fourth quarter, but mounted a furious comeback. Serrano (5-1) won on a 2-yard touchdown pass from backup senior quarterback Brett Porter to senior tight end Elijah Goldtrap with eight seconds left. “It was a great win and a really wild game,” Serrano coach Ray Maholchic said. “(Burroughs) dominated for three quarters, and then our kids turned it around.” Also scoring in the fourth quarter for the defending CIF-Southern Section Division VIII champions were Anthony Ruize on a 40-yard screen pass from Porter and Mitchell Harris on a 12-yard run. Serrano’s other points came on a 70-yard TD pass from Porter to Steven Litsey and a 35-yard field goal by Steven Goss. Hayo Carpenter had more than 100 yards in receiving for Burroughs (3-3). The Diamondbacks were missing five offensive starters due to injury, Maholchic said, including quarterback Max Maholchic (the coach’s son) and tailback Marcos Cabrera. Both should play this week. Serrano opens Mojave River League play on Friday at home against Sultana, which is 1-0 in league after defeating Apple Valley on Friday night. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

SIMI VALLEY – The distance between the mall anchors at the Simi Valley Town Center is close to 2,000 feet – double the length of a typical mall. Robinsons-May is at the east end and Macy’s is at the western edge, with more than 120 specialty shops in between. The layout of this 600,000-square-foot, open-air, single-story lifestyle center presented a challenge to mall officials, who sought ways to get shoppers to go the extra distance and have fun doing so. “We wanted to make the walking experience a pleasant one,” said Kenneth Lee, project manager. To do that, they broke up the view of this Italian village with angles, and incorporated visual elements into their design for people to enjoy through the quarter-mile journey. A 30-foot-by-20-foot koi pond has 47 koi and dozens of other fish. It contains 5,600 gallons of water, four water-spouting, sculpted fish on each corner and tropical lilies. A four-legged, 10-ton, 50-foot dragon sculpture, with an arched tail, smiling face and set of wings, is made of bits and pieces of hand-cut tiles. The feature, located in the Dragon Court, is expected to attract children and adults alike. Two towering 100-year-old oak trees originally on the property were preserved and now rest in the mall’s courtyard of the 129-acre Town Center, along with several olive trees. From gardens to paseos, wall fountains and an outdoor fireplace, rockers and sofas, the center is poised to be a gathering spot for locals, said Lee. Andy Feola, president of F+A Architects in Pasadena, said the features add a “wow” factor. “We wanted to create landmarks and surprises around every corner … something different and interesting to look at,” he said. The buildings are decked out in earthy and natural tones, tile or copper roofs, with limestone or sandstone facades for a Mediterranean mood. Four interactive fountains in the 200-seat food court, sculpted heads representing the four seasons, spew water in which children can play, along with another play area featuring a sculptured baby turtle, a frog, a bear over a log and a trout. “Each wing has its own characteristics,” Lee said. “The side in the eastern portion is more lively, a lot of action. The western side is serene, classic and tranquil. Everywhere you turn, there’s all these special features. “We want shoppers to feel like this is their town center. We want to create a special place where they can come in and relax, drink coffee, shop and bring the kids along.” With the holidays around the corner, the mall already is planning for a 60-foot holiday tree to be displayed at the Center Court, which can also be used for live concerts. A spiral stairway at Center Court leads to 500 luxury apartments now under construction, to be nestled above the hill. The $300 million project also includes an area for big-box retailers, a community room with a veranda overlooking the court, and 4,200 parking spaces. The Town Center, tucked above the Ronald Reagan Freeway between First Street and Erringer Road, opened Thursday. It is the first regional center to be developed in Ventura County in more than 25 years.

It is important now that we are in the age of the 4th industrial revolution to tap into digital shopping habits and to ensure that more locally grown, produced and manufactured goods are available to local consumers. We know that China supplies US$15.5 billion of imports to this country and much of that is found on online shopping sites.

Of course, it is not restricted to SA only and we will be delighted if there is uptake from international shoppers!.”RSA Made’s CEO Karamba Jabbie added, “We feel that we have found a perfect partner in Proudly South African – our platform already concentrated exclusively on items made here in South Africa, and so it made complete sense to us to join together with the country’s buy local advocacy campaign, whose member companies are already quality controlled for sale on the platform.

We will take our time to ensure that all products are beautifully represented to provide consumers with a truly Proudly South African online shopping experience but users can subscribe to the site to receive regular notifications as new products and special offers come online, so we are encouraging everyone to register on the site.”The launch of the site also holds great importance for the growth and development of the country’s digital economy and push towards increased re-industrialisation and consumption of locally made products. Minister in the dti, Dr Rob Davies commented on the launch of the site and said, “Reindustrialization is a priority to growing job opportunities in the country and the accessibility of locally made products especially in this era where more and more consumers are buying their products on online platforms, this is a much needed solution. We also have to recognize changing employment patterns and the potential this sector has in creating new employment sources. Technology has the capacity to generate many new skilled jobs, and we must look at the commercialisation of innovations such as online shopping platforms. E-commerce represents a great opportunity and I am delighted that Proudly South African has seized the day and has created a site where increased localisation is the only goal.”The site works on the same basis as any other online shopping store, with a simple product selection and check out sequence, with door to door delivery within 48 hours within our borders.
