Wayne Bennett set to remain England head coach

first_imgThe 68-year-old’s two-year contract with the Rugby Football League ran out after he guided England to the final of the 2017 World Cup but it is believed he has been persuaded to stay on in the job.The RFL accepted a recommendation from rugby director Kevin Sinfield, the former Leeds and England captain who has conducted a review into the national team’s performance at the World Cup, and confirmation of the reappointment of Bennett is expected early next week.Bennett, who succeeded Steve McNamara two years ago on a part-time basis while continuing his day job with Brisbane Broncos, declined to discuss his future in the immediate aftermath of December’s final.However, the former Australia and Queensland coach won many admirers for the way he turned England into a competitive force after a dismal 2016 Four Nations, guiding them to a first World Cup final for 22 years, and to a man the players expressed their support for his continued involvement.The reappointment will head off any possible move for Bennett’s services from New Zealand, who earlier this week changed their eligibility rules to give them the opportunity to appoint an Australian as their head coach following a review into the Kiwis’ disappointing World Cup.Bennett assisted Stephen Kearney when New Zealand won the World Cup in 2008 and during the 2017 campaign he raised the possibility of returning to a role with them.He will now go up against the Kiwis in the proposed mid-summer international in Denver and the end-of-season three-match Test series in the UK.The Test match in Colorado, pencilled in for Saturday, June 23, is expected to be confirmed next week by Australian promoter Jason Moore, who wants to use the game to build up interest ahead of the 2025 World Cup which will be hosted by the United States.Before then, England will host the 2021 World Cup and whether Bennett will still be at the helm by then is unclear.He will be 71 when that tournament starts and the RFL may be inclined to ask Bennett to help choose his successor in the way that another Australian, Eddie Jones, has been asked to groom the next England rugby union head coach.Sinfield and the RFL’s interim chief executive Ralph Rimmer are big admirers of Castleford coach Daryl Powell, the 2017 Super League coach of the year, as well as Bennett, whose contract with the Broncos runs out at the end of 2019.The RFL is also close to finalising the rest of the national coaching set-up, with the England Knights set to be reformed later this year to take part in a new Six Nations Championship.last_img read more

Look after facilities: Tkatchenko

first_imgSpeaking at the official opening of the facilities to sporting codes and the public at the Taurama Aquatic and Indoor Centre (TAIC) on Saturday, Tkatchenko said the Government help make the facilities become self-sufficient.Tkatchenko said PNG was the sporting hub of the Pacific and users must look after the facilities when utilising them.He said to minimise costs, the challenge was for everyone, including the PNG Sports Foundation and the venue management, to maintain and look after the facilities.“The facilities were built for the public to utilise and for the sports to enhance their capabilities — the onus is on everyone to look after the facilities.“They were built by the Government nurture potential champions,” he said.Tkatchenko said the Government did not want to repeat the 1991 Pacific Games experience — where Games facilities fell into disuse and disrepair.Pamphlets containing information on the use and hire of venues were handed out during the ceremony.The facilities opened at the TAIC include the gym and the pool.Other facilities opened were the Sir John Guise indoor and outdoor stadiums, the Rita Flynn Court and the Bisini Sports Precinct.Tkatchenko congratulated everyone for their hard work and cooperation pre-Games and post-Games.Pacific Games chairman Kostas Constantinou said the real challenge for everyone was to leave a lasting legacy.“We need to respect these facilities so they can be here for a long time,” he said.Meanwhile, Tkatchenko announced at the weekend that he would look into developing sporting infrastructure in the provincesThe minister admitted that at the moment, everything was concentrated in Port Moresby “Kalabond is one of the good stadiums in the islands, with a couple in the highlands,” Tkatchenko said.He said more had to be done for provinces to uncover potential talent so that they got the opportunity to compete.“We have a blueprint, with architectural designs and drawings, and we are already doing a 5000-seat stadium, which costs about K4.5 million,” Tkatchenko said.“These stadiums can be put up in six months and serve their intended purpose in the provinces.”last_img read more

LCP, FDA Take “Don’t Eat Bush Meat “Campaign To Gardnersville, Empowers Women, Youth Organizations…

first_imgThe Liberian Crusaders for Peace (LCP), in partnership with the Forestry Development Authority (FDA), has empowered two communities in Gardnersville to help educate and spread the massages of the danger of eating bush meat as it relates to the Ebola virus.The two communities which  benefited from the training and  financial empowerment are the Day Break Mouth Open, and the Town Hall communities.The LCP intervention in the communities was based on recommendations from a group calling itself ‘Gardnersville Youth against Ebola’.The executive director of the Liberia Crusaders for Peace (LCP), Ambassador Juli Endee,  donated a check of LD$ 50,000 to the Gardnersville Youth against Ebola, while LD25,000,  along with some lappas produced by the L.C.P were  also presented to women organizations of the two communities who benefited from the daylong training.During the turning over of the materials to the women and youth organization, Ambassador Endee said,  when the organization got an invitation from the Gardnersville Youth against Ebola, they saw it prudent to carryout sensitization in that part of Liberia.She said, “The 75 thousand, thirty-five buckets, chloral, soap and other items we are giving you today came from our partners. We are working with other organizations who want to see this Ebola out of Liberia.”She told the gathering that the funding and thirty –five pieces of buckets, soap were provided by the Morweh group of company own by Christopher Neyor and other partners.“The Forestry Development Authority (FDA) as one of our partners also provided funding for us to visit communities and give massages that will speak to the mind of Liberians to stop eating bush meat and other activities which will put them into  harms ways” the culture icon said. According to her the nation is faced with a different kind of war and at such every Liberian regardless of sex, religion should join the fight against the killer virus which is calming lives of citizens.“We had our members going into the communities telling residents not to eat bush meat, bats and encouraging them to follow those massages from the Health Ministry, Forestry Development Association and the Liberian government if we are to win the fight against the Ebola virus. We also had people in the hall educating the people to take into consideration good health practices.Speaking additionally, the Liberia culture icon said if Liberia is to win the fight against the virus, they should amalgamate their forces and put aside their personal difference inform health authorities about ill people moving in and out of communities as some of the surest ways to prevent the spread of the deadly virus.The Liberia culture ambassador indicated that it was not time for politicking but for every Liberian to follow those massages to save lives.She said “My people, Ebola is real and it kills. Let’s prevent ourselves and family against this disease, let save our family members by obeying those regulations put forth by the ministry of health and its partners”.At the same time resident of the communities have appreciate the Liberia Crusaders for Peace for reaching out to them especially in this critical time the country is face with to identified with them and provide safety massages for themThe Gardnerville Commissioner Vambah Kenneh praised the organization for providing the people of the area with important information that will keep them save from the Ebola virus.“It is now with us to follow those massages provided by the LCP and keep our save from this Ebola sickness” Mr. Kenneh said.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Latest embarrassment leaves Mourinho running out of time at Man Utd

first_imgHowever, by the end of proceedings on Sunday, as two deflected Xherdan Shaqiri strikes in the final 17 minutes sealed a thoroughly deserved victory for the hosts, it was Liverpool fans who sarcastically sang “don’t sack Mourinho”.The Portuguese coach said he accepted responsibility for a fifth defeat of the season that leaves the 20-time champions of England 11 points adrift of even a top-four finish.But he also pointed the finger at what he described as “permanently injured” players and claimed both sides played “in relation to their qualities”.That does not say much for Mourinho’s management as despite Liverpool spending more than any other Premier League club this summer to mount a title challenge, United’s transfer spend under Mourinho in recent years still dwarfs that of any side other than champions Manchester City.“Not one of the United midfielders can pass a football,” said former United captain Gary Neville on Sky Sports.“Not one of them. I find it staggering. United were awful.”– Wasted millions –The wasted millions that have led United to this position were laid bare at Anfield as Paul Pogba, who cost a then world-record £89 million ($112 million) in 2016, was left on the bench for the full 90 minutes.Another near £100 million of attacking talent in Juan Mata and Anthony Martial also started on the sidelines, while £50 million close-season signing Fred did not even make an injury-hit matchday squad.“If you came down from the moon today and knew nothing about football you’d say United are an average Premier League side,” said another former United captain Roy Keane in a withering assessment of the Red Devils’ predicament.“They are Manchester United of the 1980s, they can be a decent cup team.”Liverpool dominated United, England and most of Europe in the 80s, but have not won a league title since 1990.An end to nearly three decades of hurt could be in sight, though, as victory took Jurgen Klopp’s men back to the top of the table, a point clear of City.As Klopp bounded onto the field to hug his players and rouse the home fans in one final celebration after the final whistle, the German epitomised the differing mood at the two clubs personified by their managers.Mourinho had successfully parked the bus to come away from Anfield with 0-0 draws in each of the two previous seasons.Yet, this United side are not even capable of mastering that gameplan anymore with a defence that has conceded 29 goals in 17 Premier League games.United must now watch their two fiercest rivals battle it out for the title, while already a top-four finish looks like a tall order for Mourinho’s men.Ultimately, it was failure to qualify for the Champions League that cost Mourinho’s predecessors Louis van Gaal and David Moyes their jobs.The same fate is likely to meet Mourinho, despite extending his contract to 2020 earlier this year.“Will Mourinho leave? I think it will happen,” added Neville, who reserved much of the blame for Woodward and the board.“Nobody above him can handle him. They don’t know what to do with him, they don’t know what to say to him. They don’t know what he’s going to say at every press conference.“It will cost a fortune to lose him now.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Running out of time: Manchester United’s 3-1 defeat at Liverpool leaves Jose Mourinho again fighting for his job © AFP / JOSE JORDANLIVERPOOL, United Kingdom, Dec 17 – Manchester United had not lost to Liverpool in the Premier League for eight games and over four years prior to Sunday’s 3-1 defeat, but the current chasm between the two sides was exposed as Jose Mourinho’s men fell 19 points behind the league leaders at Anfield.Match-going United fans have been reluctant to turn on Mourinho, instead often pointing fingers at executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward’s reluctance to back the manager in the transfer market this summer or the club’s American owners, the Glazer family.last_img read more

Russian Orthodox churches moving closer to reconciling 1917 differences

first_imgEach church still would maintain its own council of bishops, but priests could participate and lead mass in both churches. The two churches also could cooperate with religious education, youth programs and missionary activities. “Administratively we will remain the same, but spiritually we will be one,” said the Rev. Peter Perekrestov, a priest at Holy Virgin Cathedral and secretary of the All-Diaspora Council. “Up to now, the relationship has been strained and standoffish.” The emigre church split from the patriarchate three years after the Bolshevik Revolution and cut all ties in 1927, after Patriarch Sergiy declared the church’s loyalty to the Soviet Union’s communist government. The Russian Orthodox Church had said Sergiy’s move was aimed at saving the church, but recently disavowed the declaration. The emigre church and its parent began discussions about re-establishing ties after the Soviet Union collapsed in 1991. The two churches recently set up working groups to ease the process.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! SAN FRANCISCO – The Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia said Friday that it will move toward reconciling with the Moscow-based parent church it split from after the 1917 Bolshevik Revolution. The two churches would still have separate administrations, but would bond spiritually and allow their followers to worship in each other’s churches. “The two separate parts of the Russian Church will again be together,” said the Rev. Alexander Lebedeff, secretary of the exile church’s commission on reconciliation. “This division is coming to an end.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREBasketball roundup: Sierra Canyon, Birmingham set to face off in tournament quarterfinalsThe move was announced after a meeting in San Francisco of the 13 bishops of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia, which has more than 400 parishes worldwide and about 480,000 U.S. members. For only the fourth time since it split with its parent church nearly 80 decades ago, the emigre church convened a special 134-member All-Diaspora Council, which met at San Francisco’s Holy Virgin Cathedral the week before last. The council, made up of clergy and lay people, voted to recommend that the bishops rejoin the Russian Orthodox Church, also known as the Russian Orthodox Patriarchate. Representatives of the Moscow patriarchate could not be reached for comment Friday, but previously said they welcomed the All-Diaspora Council’s vote for reconciliation. The two churches still need to develop and sign a document that makes their reunification complete, which could happen within the next year. last_img read more

Solar Power Alone Won’t Solve Energy or Climate Needs

first_imgWhy We Still Need to Discuss Grid DefectionRethinking the GridCan Solar Power Solve the Coal Problem? Utilities Grapple with Rooftop Solar and the New Energy LandscapeIs Nuclear Power Our Energy Future or a Dinosaur? For example, the energy produced from a large number of solar arrays combined as 1,000 megawatts (MW) installed capacity will deliver, on average, an energy equivalent of 10% to 12% of its capacity. In contrast, a nuclear plant delivers energy at 80% to 90% of its rated capacity.The current global installed capacity of solar facilities is 224,684 MW, providing an annual energy output of 253,593 GWh, equivalent to an annual capacity factor of 11%. Similarly, the installed capacity of solar facilities in Germany is 39,784 MW, with an annual energy output of 36,056 GWh at a capacity factor of 10.3%.So, for the same installed capacity, solar energy production is one-eighth or one-ninth of the production of a nuclear plant. If you want the same amount of energy, then you would need to install an equivalent solar capacity that is higher by as large a margin — eight to nine times the number of additional solar arrays. Jatin Nathwani is professor and Ontario Research Chair in Public Policy for Sustainable Energy at the University of Waterloo. This post originally appeared at The Conversation. RELATED ARTICLES Less hype, more factThe point here is not to diminish the value and positive contribution that solar can make towards reducing our dependence on fossil fuels to help achieve a global energy transition towards a low carbon energy future.The hype needs to be tempered by a realistic assessment of the emerging energy demand at the global level and the effective capability of meeting growth in energy demand on a very large scale.You don’t want to get conscripted to the view that one energy option — solar — is the sole answer, and it also happens to be an option that does not deliver large volumes of energy from the installed base.Why is this relevant? The urgency for implementing effective low-carbon energy solutions is all but fully acknowledged and recognized by all the countries of the world (except the current U.S. administration).center_img Future of energy is diverse and distributedThe scope and scale of change required to meet climate change targets is anything but trivial. This suggests a complementary and reinforcing role for many different energy technologies with low-carbon attributes such as wind, solar, hydro, geothermal, nuclear and natural gas as an interim substitute for coal.The approach is complementary because each technology has characteristics that require attention to its limitations and to ensure it can function as part of an integrated energy system that delivers best value to the end user.The emerging energy system of this century will not look anything like the energy system of the past century dominated by central power-generating stations transmitting energy over long distances to cities, towns and villages.Distributed energy resources — best exemplified by solar as Exhibit A — combined with the power of information and communication technologies (ICT) will increasingly become relevant in our lives.Imagine a household becomes both an energy generator (solar on the roof) with an electric vehicle capable of storing energy (from wind and solar) and selling the energy back to the wires when it is profitable to do so. All of this could be managed seamlessly through a virtual power network enabled by ICT. Thus, a consumer has now become a producer and a consumer — a “prosumer.”Technology entrepreneur Elon Musk’s company, Tesla, Inc., is working to make that vision a reality today with its electric cars, solar-cell roof tiles, home energy storage, and networked, grid-connected battery systems currently being installed in Australia. Decentralized power generationWill distributed energy become truly disruptive and completely undermine both the business model of the existing utilities and the investments in the large centralized infrastructure?In my view, distributed energy resources can be best recognized as a positive force that will help reinforce and increase the reliability and resilience of the “big grid.” They also bring an environmental emissions attribute that helps to amplify a positive trend towards a low carbon energy future.Why do we need large, centralized generating stations at all? The global energy demand to 2050 will either double or triple from current levels. This is primarily driven by demographics and income shifts.The world’s population is forecast to approach nine billion people in 2050 — with many to shift in income from extreme poverty to low- and middle income levels — which means an inexorable upward pressure on need for energy. A warming climate is another driver of growth in energy demand for cooling.Improved economic well-being combined with an irreversible shift towards intense urbanization creates a scenario that is difficult to deflect: We are faced with an emerging global context that is shaped by a critical dependence on high quality energy services to a growing, richer population that faces more thermal stress than ever before.The amounts of energy we need are large, not necessarily because we are energy hogs, but rather that we desire an improved quality of life. This will require a major fine-tuning of the existing energy system that can exploit the best features of all available energy sources in unison. Recent reports that solar capacity will soon exceed nuclear capacity reveal an important fact. It also hides a crucial distinction needed to understand the context of energy production, and the use and consequences of choices among supply options for the future.As executive director of the Waterloo Institute for Sustainable Energy (WISE) and lead author of the Equinox Blueprint Energy 2030, a technological roadmap for a low-carbon electrified future, I have investigated energy options, alternatives and their utility. I have also found that people get confused with terminology.Capacity installed in kilowatts (kW) is not equal to energy produced in kilowatt hours (kWh) — and the energy services we demand and pay for (such as cooking, cooling, lighting, entertainment) is measured in kilowatt hours. For large-scale, industrial purposes, output is measured in megawatt hours (MWh) or gigawatt hours (GWh).The technical capacity of any energy technology to deliver useful energy is measured as energy output. Because of the efficiency of energy conversion, solar energy output tends to be low.last_img read more
