Ermis desperate to end miserable run

first_imgBy Iacovos ConstantinouEven though there are still four rounds to go before the teams are split into two groups of six for the Cyprus football championship playoffs, there can be only one change in the groups as they stand now with AEL displacing Ermis Aradippou in sixth place. The two teams meet on Monday with home side Ermis hoping to put an end to their miserable run in recent weeks that has seen them drop from third to sixth in recent weeks.It will be a baptism of fire for their newly appointed coach, Mitchell van der Gaag, who arrived in Cyprus on Thursday and trained his players today Friday for the first time.At worst Ermis need to share the spoils on Monday as a defeat will see AEL leapfrog them into sixth place. AEL’s new coach Christophorou has done well since taking over but he will have to do without his most in-form striker, Marco Tagbajumi who is suspended for the game. Semo and Sardinero are the likely candidates to replace the Nigerian striker. The teams above Ermis and AEL have all seemingly easy fixtures this weekend as they face teams from the bottom half of the table.League leaders Apollonas are at home to relegation candidate Doxa Katokopias and anything other than a comprehensive win will be considered a surprise.The Limassol team have strengthened their defence with the acquisition of towering centre half Edwin Ouon while their star forward Guie Guie fired in six goals in his last five games.Doxa will need to perform at their best if they are to get anything out of this game.APOEL, who recorded their first league win in almost two months last week, will once again be without at least five first teamers against tough-tackling Ethnikos Achnas.Lanig is expected to partner Morais in the middle of the park while the other new APOEL recruit Nafiu may also get his first start.Ethnikos Achnas will be without the suspended Bezzera and Ogungbe and the injured Boyadjis and Francescou.Four days after thumping five past Ayia Napa in the Cup, Omonia return to the Tasos Markou stadium to face them in the league as favourites.However Omonia’s coach Kaiafas said after the Cup game that on Sunday it will be a completely different game. The same views were echoed by the Ayia Napa stand-in coach Savvas Theodorou who rested a number of players in the cup game.Anorthosis, who seem to have ‘locked’ a top-six finish, take on Nea Salamina in an all-Famagusta clash at the Antonis Papadopoulos while AEK face Othellos Athienou at the GSZ stadium.Saturday, February 7th : APOEL VS Ethnikos Achnas (17.00), Apollonas vs Doxa (18.00), AEK vs Othellos (19.00)Sunday, February 8th: Anorthosis vs Nea Salamina (16.00), Ayia Napa vs. Omonia (18.00)Monday, February 9th: Ermis Aradippou vs AEL (19.00)last_img read more

Suarez on fire as Barca return to winning ways by destroying Deportivo 8-0

first_imgA red hot Luis Suarez scored four goals and contributed three assists as Barcelona’s stuttering La Liga title charge sparked back to life with a spectacular 8-0 thrashing of Deportivo La Coruna on Wednesday.Atletico Madrid kept the pressure on Barca with a 1-0 win at Athletic Bilbao thanks to a first half header from Fernando Torres, although defender Diego Godin was forced off in the ninth minute with a suspected hamstring injury.Barca lead Atletico due to their superior head-to-head record, with both teams on 79 points with four games remaining. Third-placed Real Madrid kicked-off against Villarreal later on Wednesday.Three successive defeats had put the breaks on Barcelona’s title hopes but Uruguayan Suarez made sure the losing run would not continue when he gave Barca a two-goal cushion at the break by scoring in the 11th and 24th minutes.He then provided the cross for Ivan Rakitic to grab the third in the 48th. Suarez completed his hat-trick five minutes later and netted his fourth in the 64th. Lionel Messi, Marc Bartra and Neymar rounded off the scoring late on.Barca headed to Riazor without influential defender Gerard Pique in search of a first win in five league games.Suarez put them on their way by volleying home Rakitic’s corner from inside the six yard box, then added the second with a first time finish with the help of a stylish tee up from Messi.The former Liverpool striker laid on the cross for Rakitic to score on the half volley shortly after the break, and completed his treble thanks to another assist from Messi. Suarez’s fourth goal was scrappier, following his shot in on the rebound after being denied by Deportivo goalkeeper Manu.He then set up Messi to tap in from inside the box in the 73rd minute.Arguably the best goal was scored by defender Bartra, who was making just a fourth league start in the absence of Pique. The centre back powered his way through Deportivo’s defence and into the area before producing a confident finish into the far corner in the 79th minute.There was still time for Neymar to end his drought of five games without a goal, the Brazilian turning another pass by Suarez in at the near post.Torres scored for the fifth consecutive game in all competitions to give Atletico a fourth straight league win, heading in Antoine Griezmann’s chipped cross on 38 minutes.However, Atletico defender Godin could miss their next league game against Malaga and their Champions League semi-final first leg against Bayern Munich after hurting his hamstring, two weeks after recovering from a hamstring injury in the same leg.last_img read more

Should there be an investigation in foreign role in Guyana’s elections?

first_imgDear Editor,President Obama has ordered an investigation into Russia’s role in the recent Presidential elections. Shouldn’t President Obama also order an investigation into US role in Guyana’s general elections May 2015?The Democrats, quoting from a secret CIA report, assert that Russia (through its Intelligence Agency) influenced the outcome of the recent US Presidential elections causing the Republican Donald Trump to win the Presidency. The report, as carried in the Washington Post, claims that Russia’s aim was “to help Mr. Trump win and not just undermine the U.S. electoral process”.Republicans responded that there is no conclusive proof the Russians determined the outcome of the election. However, the Republicans condemn any purported outside interference in US elections without mentioning Russia by name.President elect Donald Trump rebuked the Democrats as well as the CIA report noting that the outcome of the election was long over, and that they should stop any investigations into the elections. Trump said it is time to move on. But President Obama has ordered an investigation into Russia’s interference in the elections “to protect the integrity of American elections”. How about protecting the integrity of Guyana’s elections?It is ironic that Obama is concerned about Russia’s interference in the elections when it is the same Obama Administration, through the US Embassy agents in Guyana, that interfered in Guyana’s May 2015 elections “to select” a winner. It is alleged that the US removed the de facto Indian PPP administration and replaced it with the African PNC led government. Ironically, PPP leaders supported Obama over Hilary Clinton in the 2008 Democrat nomination contest. The same Obama has removed the PPP leaders from office and replaced them with PNC leaders.The role of the US Embassy through CIA agents was to collect, evaluate and disseminate information to assist Obama and senior US government policymakers in making decisions about national security. The role of the Embassy, through the CIA, is also to engage in covert action at the president’s request. The Embassy determined that the PPP had to go and a plan was put into effect.Everyone knows that the CIA funded various covert operations in Guyana. The CIA historically funded the PNC as reported in NY Times. But more recently, it was the AFC and WPA affiliates that also got American funding to campaign against the PPP. The National Democratic Institute for International Affairs, the Republican Institute, NED, and other US agencies channelled funds to them and affiliated NGOs to motivate PNC supporters to cast ballots.The PPP attacked the American funding organisations instead of working closely with them to fund PPP support groups to educate supporters on the importance of voting. The PPP looked for its trouble by attacking the US that justifiably removed it from office.The then US Acting Ambassador, Bryan Hunt, according to media reports, objected to recount of ballots in what was the closest democratic elections in Guyana’s history. Gecom which had agreed to a recount of ballots reversed course following Hunt’s objection to a recount. At a minimum, the PPP could have ended up with 33 seats in Parliament if a recount was done in Region 8 where the PPP lost by one vote with some 45 votes declared as spoilt – almost all in favour of PPP, according to observers and PPP counting agents.In Region 4 there were suspected counts and fake statements of poll that could not reliably determine final counts.In societies where elections tend not to be free and fair, as in Guyana, observers are needed to guarantee a democratic election. Thus, Guyana needs foreign (neutral) observers to ensure a fair election. Guyanese welcome international observers to ensure transparent, free and fair elections. But there should not be outside interference by powerful governments to determine the winner as the US Embassy did in Guyana in 1964 and 2015 to remove the PPP from office.It is also recorded facts that the US encouraged and funded rigged elections in Guyana to keep out the socialist PPP from office and to retain the pro-imperialist PNC in office between 1964 and 1992. The US had a change in heart in 1992 following the collapse of communism, ordering the PNC to hold democratic elections.The PNC did its best to rig the 1992 outcome but fell short and was forced to give up power although not without violent resistance attacking non-supporters. Obama should order an investigation into US role in the 2015 Guyana elections.Yours truly,Vishnu Bisramlast_img read more

Forget Messi’s penalty miss – let’s celebrate, says Barcelona boss Enrique

first_img1 Barcelona boss Luis Enrique Barcelona boss Luis Enrique has dismissed Lionel Messi’s late penalty miss against Manchester City and insisted his players can celebrate a job well done at the Etihad Stadium.The Spanish side were 2-1 winners against the Premier League side in the Champions League last 16 as Luis Suarez struck twice in the first half before Sergio Aguero grabbed one back for the hosts.Messi had the chance to give Barcelona a bigger lead with an injury time spot-kick only to see Joe Hart pull off a brilliant save.But Enrique has revealed the Argentine will retain penalty duties and praised the efforts of his charges.“We know penalties can be missed in this game of ours and he [Lionel Messi] will take the next one,” he said.“Tonight is a night to celebrate.

Read on to find out about this and more in this week’s Disneyland news.Special Events and NotesAs you know, we now have an official opening date for Rise of the Resistance at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge: January 17, 2020. This revelation and apparent resignation that it is going to be a while before the land is complete seems to have brought some people back to the parks, and we’re starting to see crowds that are more like what we’re used to seeing this time of year. The situation remains very fluid, but we’re bringing our projections up from the 1s and 2s we’ve been seeing to higher numbers (see below). You can stay abreast of ALL of our Galaxy’s Edge coverage by bookmarking this link.In preparation for the Haunted Mansion’s 50th Anniversary celebration on August 9, Disney has opened a special exhibit in the Disney Gallery. It includes concept art, models, and artwork from this classic attraction.An opportunity for soda-loving Passholders has popped up at Disneyland. Disney is now offering collectible refillable tumblers to Passholders for $14.99, and they are available for purchase now through September 5, 2019 (while supplies last). These tumblers can be refilled for 99 cents with soda, regular coffee, hot tea, or hot chocolate at one of several locations throughout the resort. Check out this article from Disney for more details.As a reminder, the 25th Anniversary of The Lion King continues at Disney California Adventure through September 2. You’ll see storytellers; African song, dance, artwork, and crafts; and more at the Palisades Stage. Check here and your in-park times guide for more details. Also, the original Soarin’ Over California is available to experience through August 31, AND on Thursdays through July 31, Passholders will get an extra hour at the end of the night to experience it.Looking ahead, the Main Street Electrical Parade is making a return to Disneyland! Starting August 2, the popular parade will be running in the evenings through September 30. Also, tickets are now available for Disney’s new Halloween Party at California Adventure this fall — the Oogie Boogie Bash — including a dance party, treat trails, and special presentation of World of Color called “Villainous.” More details are available here.CrowdsAfter several weeks of historically low crowds, we’re starting to see people return to Disneyland. We had been seeing level 1 and 2 crowds, but this week has already brought 7 and 8 level crowds resort-wide. We’re projecting that trend to continue this week, particularly now that people know that they’ll be waiting until 2020 for Rise of the Resistance anyway. With that said, the only thing predictable about Disneyland crowds this year has been their unpredictability, so there certainly remain the possibility for the crowds to be unexpectedly high or low until we start to see more consistency.Adjustments to the crowd calendar will be ongoing throughout the summer. For the most up-to-date numbers, check out our Crowd Calendar.WeatherTemperatures will see highs in the mid-80s and lows in the 60s. There’s only a few slight chances of rain, and nothing that should really make a difference from a planning standpoint.As always, it’s wise to double check the weather as the day of your visit approaches.
