first_imgGuus Hiddink said he took Matt Miazga off at half-time against Swansea partly because he did not want to risk the Chelsea defender being sent off.Miazga was booked during the first half of the Blues’ 1-0 defeat at the Liberty Stadium and interim boss Hiddink decided to replace him with Kenedy.Hiddink said: “We had had some half-chances which we were not sharp enough to materialise.AdChoices广告“We went 1-0 down with some sloppy defensive work and on top of that he had a yellow card, and I didn’t want to take the risk of him getting a second yellow. That was the main reason to make the substitution.”Chelsea pushed forward but were unable to find an equaliserThe defeat was Chelsea’s first in the league under Hiddink, who also brought on Radamel Falcao and Bertrand Traore in the second half.“Every defeat hurts, but everyone knows the situation we are in, so there’s a positive side to bringing in youngsters and seeing what they can do,” said Hiddink, who started with Ruben Loftus-Cheek in midfield.“ We were attacking and attacking, but in the final third we were not sharp enough.“I prefer to give chances to people playing less frequently and then having the risk of defeat, although today’s defeat was unnecessary.” Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebook See also:Chelsea suffer first league loss under Hiddink’It is good if he plays’ – Chelsea boss explains how youngster can improveFans on Twitter react to Miazga’s display against Swansealast_img read more

first_imgBayern Munich will face Chelsea in the Champions League final after beating Real Madrid in a penalty shoot-out following an engrossing semi-final.Real trailed by a goal from the first leg but two Cristiano Ronaldo strikes – the first a penalty, the second a neat low finish – put them in control.However, Arjen Robben levelled the tie for Bayern with a spot kick of his own.No further goals meant a shoot-out, which Bastian Schweinsteiger settled to send his team to a final on home turf.The midfielder was not his side’s only hero in the shoot-out. Goalkeeper Manuel Neuer played a major part, saving Real’s first two penalties – from Ronaldo and Kaka, while Mario Gomez and David Alaba scored for Bayern.This was the second time in major Champions League shoot-outs that Ronaldo had missed from the spot, having also failed for Manchester United in the 2008 final against Chelsea. It also means the two players currently rated the world’s best have missed key penalties in successive days following Lionel Messi’s failure from the spot for Barcelona on Tuesday.It was a terrible end to the game for the Portuguese winger who had earlier put his side in control with two goals in the first 15 minutes.The first came from the penalty spot as he stroked home – nervelessly on that occasion – after Alaba had handled Angel di Maria’s cross in the box. His second was a superb low finish into the corner of the net after being found by Mesut Ozil in the box. It put Real on course for the final and a potentially memorable double, following a great week in which they have virtually secured the Spanish title with victory at Barcelona on Saturday.It also set up the enticing prospect of a match-up between Real boss Jose Mourinho – looking for an historic third Champions League title with a third club – against his former charges Chelsea, the only one of his major clubs he has failed to lead to European glory. Instead it is Jupp Heynckes who could now claim his second European crown on 19 May after leading Real to the trophy in 1998.His side were simply not prepared to allow their dream of a final on home soil slip away so easily and they hit back with a penalty of their own midway through the first half when Mario Gomez tumbled in the box under a challenge from Pepe and Robben made no mistake from the spot.It was a fitting reward for the German side, who had matched Real in the first half and shown plenty of attacking intent. Had Gomez demonstrated the sharpness that had brought him 12 goals in the competition this season Bayern could even have led at the break, but he saw a low shot saved by Casillas and glanced a header wide.Gomez also had the clearest opportunity of a very tight second half and extra-time but instead of hitting the ball first time with the goal at his mercy, he dwelt and Real cleared. It seemed only fitting that a tie so evenly matched over two legs should be settled by a penalty shoot-out.After Neuer’s early heroics, Casillas almost rescued his side with two saves of his own from Toni Kroos and Phillip Lahm, but Sergio Ramos then blazed over for the home side, leaving Schweinsteiger to claim his moment of glory.The win came at a cost for the German side, who will be without Alaba, Holger Badstuber and Luiz Gustavo after they picked up bookings.last_img read more

first_imgSALT LAKE CITY — Jazz fans didn’t have much to cheer about in Saturday night’s 106-94 whipping by the New Orleans Pelicans. But at least they got a chance to see one of the NBA’s emerging superstars up close and personal.No, we’re not talking about Jimmer Fredette.Anthony Davis, the 6-foot-10, former No. 1 draft pick from Kentucky, has become one of the NBA’s best in his third season in the NBA. He showed the Jazz an eyeful Saturday, scoring a career-high 43 points on 16-of-23 shooting with a team-high 14 rebounds. For good measure, he added a pair of steals and a blocked shot and played good defense against Utah’s big men, who collectively didn’t have one of their better nights.“Obviously Davis is a great player and he had a great game tonight,’’ said Utah coach Quin Snyder. “It’s a real challenge. You can’t give him easy baskets and he got some of those tonight.’’The Jazz couldn’t find an answer for the talented 6-foot-10 Davis all night. Several Jazz players took a turn guarding the big man with Enes Kanter, Derrick Favors, Gordon Hayward and Trevor Booker all having no luck stopping Davis.“There was really never a chance to double him, he goes so quickly when he gets the ball,’’ said Snyder.“It’s tough — he’s long, he’s athletic, he can shoot over you, he can drive it — he has a lot of assets to his game,’’ said Booker. “I should have tried to guard him a little more. I’m not sure I could have made a difference … he’s a good player.’’With their second straight loss, the Jazz dropped to 5-9 on the season with a home game against Chicago coming up on Monday night, while the Pelicans improved to 7-5.For the third straight game the Jazz got off to a slow start and found themselves down by 17 points at halftime. They clawed back within five points after three quarters, but couldn’t get closer as the Pelicans increased their lead down the stretch.After getting 21 of his points in the first half on 8-of-10 shooting, Davis added 11 points in the third quarter and 11 more in the in the final period.“It was a special night for him,’’ said New Orleans coach Monty Williams. “He didn’t want to come out of the game, but we had to get him a break (Davis played 40 minutes). He never lost his rhythm. We know he’s a special player and he’s just starting to scratch the surface, but tonight was a big-time night for him.’’Davis gave credit to his teammates, saying, “My team helped me a lot. All of our guards were finding me and making sure I got the ball in my sweet spots. So then it was my job to knock them down.’’Jrue Holiday was the only other Pelican player in double figures with 19, including 2-of-2 from 3-point range. He also had nine of the team’s 19 assists.Both teams had played the night before, although the Jazz starters had played less, barely half the game since Golden State had a 22-point halftime lead and coasted home from there.The Pelicans had lost by 20 in Denver, but had been in the game until the final quarter, and four of their starters played at least 29 minutes, including 31 from Davis.That’s what amazed Williams about Davis.“I told him I don’t take that for granted, a guy who can go for 43 and 14 off a back-to-back with that kind of energy,’’ Williams said.The two bright spots for the Jazz were Hayward and Trey Burke, who scored 31 and 20 points, respectively. Hayward scored 21 in the second half when he almost singlehandedly kept the Jazz within shouting distance.But the pair didn’t get much help outside of 10 points and five rebounds off the bench from Booker. Derrick Favors scored just 13 points on 5-of-12 shooting, while Enes Kanter finished with eight. Alec Burks had a particularly rough night with two points on 1-of-12 shooting with four turnovers.As for Fredette, he entered the game with 2:50 left in the third quarter to his usual EnergySolutions reception, a loud mix of cheers and boos. He stayed in for the first half of the fourth quarter, but rarely touched the ball, getting off a 12-foot shot in the lane that rolled around and fell out and a 3-pointer from out front that also missed.“It was great to be back here to see family and friends that I was so close with the four years I was at BYU,’’ Fredette said. “It’s fun to come back and reminisce and see everyone.’’After Monday’s game against the Bulls, the Jazz head back on the road for a game at Oklahoma City Wednesday night and a home game against the L.A. Clippers Saturday night. Related Jazz forward Trevor Booker assists Utah families for Thanksgivingcenter_img Fredette trying to keep his head up as playing time dwindleslast_img read more

first_imgLast weekend, the Director General of the Civil Defence Commission (CDC) issued a warning about high tides with the possibility of flooding on the West Coast of Demerara. Scores of photos and videos shared on social media highlighted the extent of damage to homes, and even the Parika Stelling and Stabroek Market area in Georgetown.The UN General Assembly called for the International Day for Disaster Reduction in 1989 as a way to promote a global culture of risk-awareness and disaster reduction. That includes disaster prevention, mitigation and preparedness. It was originally celebrated on the second Wednesday of October (Resolution 44/236, 22 December 1989), but after two decades, the UN General Assembly formally designated October 13 as the annual date (Resolution 64/200, 21 December 2009).THE SENDAI FRAMEWORK FOR DISASTER REDUCTIONThe Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030 (Sendai Framework) is the first major agreement of the post-2015 development agenda, with seven targets and four priorities for action. It was endorsed by the UN General Assembly following the 2015 Third UN World Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction (WCDRR).The Framework is a 15-year, voluntary, non-binding agreement which recognises that the State has the primary role to reduce disaster risk, but that responsibility should be shared with other stakeholders including local government, the private sector and other stakeholders. It aims for the following outcome:The substantial reduction of disaster risk and losses in lives, livelihoods and health and in the economic, physical, social, cultural and environmental assets of persons, businesses, communities and countries.The 7 global targets(a) Substantially reduce global disaster mortality by 2030 — aiming to lower average per 100,000 global mortality rate in the decade 2020-2030 compared to the period 2005-2015.(b) Substantially reduce the number of affected people globally by 2030 — aiming to lower average global figure per 100,000 in the decade 2020 -2030 compared to the period 2005-2015.(c) Reduce direct disaster economic loss in relation to global gross domestic product (GDP) by 2030.(d) Substantially reduce disaster damage to critical infrastructure and disruption of basic services, among them health and educational facilities, including through developing their resilience by 2030.(e) Substantially increase the number of countries with national and local disaster risk reduction strategies by 2020(f) Substantially enhance international cooperation to developing countries through adequate and sustainable support to complement their national actions for implementation of this Framework by 2030.(g) Substantially increase the availability of and access to multi-hazard early warning systems and disaster risk information and assessments to the people by 2030.THE CIVIL DEFENCE COMMISSION IN GUYANAThe CDC was established in 1982 to create plans and conduct operations to deal with all types of disasters in Guyana. By 1985, a comprehensive National Disaster Preparedness Plan was documented and implemented. In September 2001, Standard Operation Procedures (SOPs) for the National Emergency Operations Centre were upgraded to meet new challenges posed by worsening domestic and international disasters.Today, the CDC’s mandate is to coordinate and monitor Disaster Risk Management and Comprehensive Disaster Management in Guyana; identify, analyse and map hazards and conduct related research into their effects and develop appropriate responses; collaborate with Ministries and Departments of Government, national and Regional Democratic Councils, local communities, statutory bodies, private sector entities, non-governmental organisations and faith-based organisations having functions related to, or having aims or objectives related to those of the Commission; develop and maintain a database on disaster-related information including climate change and other new and emerging threats and to ensure access to the database by stakeholdersIn the context of its mandate, the CDC’ s mission is, to reduce loss of life, damage to property and improve the quality of life in Guyana by leading, coordinating and supporting the nation in the development and enhancement of a comprehensive disaster risk management system, involving preparedness, mitigation, response and recovery.We all have a role to play in disaster risk management. For natural hazards such as the elements of nature, while we can’t prevent those, we can reduce the impact by being properly prepared;o Adhere to warning messages issued by public authorities,o Adhere to building codes and national standards,o Have an emergency plan and equipment for your home, work and business,o Remove any obstacles can exacerbate the problem,o Have clear signage,o Always maintain a clean and healthy environment.Additionally, be cognisant of man-made hazards and do what is necessary to protect yourself, family and your property.last_img read more

first_imgThe Ministry of Public Infrastructure is moving to complete the D’urban Park Development Project in timeHead of the Ministry of Public Infrastructure’s Special Projects Unit, Lawrence Mentis (front, left) in discussion with Guyana Defence Force Captain Daniel Seeram, as soldiers officially join the D’Urban Park Development Project workforcefor the 50th Independence anniversary celebrations. Army personnel are now on site to help turn the project into a reality.Fifteen soldiers on Monday turned out at D’urban Park and will be lending support to MPI’s Special Projects Unit (SPU) for the duration of the agency’s work. According to Captain Daniel Seeram of the GDF, the 15 soldiers include five mechanics and were deployed by Commander-in-Chief and Head of State, President David Granger.“The Guyana Defence Force is always ready to lend a helping hand to Guyana’s development,” Seeram said.Meanwhile, Head of SPU Lawrence Mentis explained that the agency’s work is moving apace. Amongst SPU’s works are the completion of the VIP and public parking areas; creation of access driveways; and the building of bridges. These works commenced on Friday.Works have begun on the external parking lot for the public as well as the road for the national float parade, which will culminate at the site.Mentis further explained that approximately 100 of the agency’s workers are onsite to ensure SPU’s task is completed, not only on time, but to the highest possible standard.“Things are progressing smoothly. We’ve had beautiful weather and the materials are coming in on time, as we expected. Once the weather permits and we’re able to keep up our current pace, we’ll be able to meet our deadline,” Mentis predicted.The set deadline for SPU’s work – and the entire project – is May 12, two weeks before Independence Day. On Tuesday last Cabinet cleared the use of some $150 million for the completion of the Project from its current stage.Minister Patterson had said funding, on the initial stage of the project, is on the line item of Ministry’s Infrastructure Development, “but there are alternatives, including what has not been concluded, a grant funding which is already earmarked for such type of developments… I can expend as much as $150 million, however, at this initial stage, we do have to get this finished before, so there will not be any need for a contingency at the moment.”The Public Infrastructure Minister went on to say that should the grant funding come to fruition, there is the possibility that it would wholly fund the remaining work that government has undertaken to complete: “I do hope the possibility of a grant funding is resolved quickly, as it will obviously defray those costs.”Meanwhile, the sources that would have funded the project to its current state still remain unknown. When asked about this, Patterson noted that the funding was derived from donations but did not reveal any names, saying that an audit would be conducted to clear up any speculation.The works being done on the D’Urban Park Project are categorised as: roofing and remedial works for spectator bleachers; completion of superstructure, walls and roof for the VIP stand and electrical wiring; lighting and power supply; access driveways and bridges, sanitary facilities and drainage works.last_img read more
