Haile Selassie, Donald Quarrie win Multi-Care senior titles

first_imgHaile Selassie High and Donald Quarrie High emerged champions of the Multi-Care Foundation’s annual mixed-team basketball and girls’ football competitions, respectively, at Breezy Castle Complex in Kingston, yesterday. On the final day of the two-day event, Donald Quarrie edged Kingston Technical High 1-0 to win the football title in the senior section, and Haile Selassie defeated Kingston Technical High 14-2 in the mixed (girls and boys) basketball final in the senior section. Both champions walked off with medals presented by Alicia Glasgow-Gentles, executive director of the Multi-Care Foundations and Ann Astwood, Multi-Care Foundation’s programme manager. Coach of Haile Selassie’s basketball team Stelvin Thomas was elated that his team came out winners. “Well, our best team was not here, but the replacements pulled through. Most of the better schools were not present, so it was a bit easier for us,” Thomas told The Gleaner, yesterday. “The players enjoyed the competition, and now they are going back to school with gold medals, so that is rewarding,” he added. Coach of Donald Quarrie’s girls’ football team Garfield Clarke said it was good for his girls as part of their development in the sport. “We feel elated about winning. We came with a developmental team and we were able to come out on top, so that augurs well for our programme,” Clarke said. On Wednesday in the junior section, Duhaney Park Primary won the football competition ahead of DuPont Primary and Holy Family Primary. In the basketball competition, Holy Family captured the title over Harbour View Primary and DuPont Primary.last_img read more

France v Iceland: Euro 2016 live stream commentary on talkSPORT

first_img Kick-off is at 8pm in Stade de France in Saint-Denis 1 Euro 2016: Every Goal, Every Game, Every Day on talkSPORTThe final Euro 2016 quarter-final takes place in Saint-Denis on Sunday evening, as hosts France take on Iceland looking to book a semi-final clash against Germany.So far, Les Bleus have beaten Romania, Albania and the Republic of Ireland, whilst Iceland have overcome their minnow status to beat Austria and England on route to this stage of the competition.On the way to the quarter-finals, they have endeared themselves to a number of fans who wish to see the tiny nation continue their incredible tournament, although France will pose a real challenge.Didier Deschamps’ men are considered one of the favourites to win the entire Euros, and they appear to be playing at full throttle now, following their win over Ireland.What the managers said:France coach Didier Deschamps“The players know Iceland aren’t here by chance. If they’re here it’s because they deserve to be and have quality. Long throws from 35 or 40 metres out are like free-kicks for them and we’ve come up with ways to deal with it. Don’t reduce them to long throws, though. In open play they’re capable of playing it on the deck. Iceland deserved to beat England, and they did it through the quality of their play.”Iceland joint-coach Lars Lagerback“I always say to players and media that in football you always have a realistic chance. I would say that France are a little bit of a favourite, but I won’t call them a big favourite. Most important for us is that we go out tomorrow and believe we can beat them. If we have that attitude, I think we can cause them some problems.”Confirmed team news:France XI: Lloris, Sagna, Umtiti, Koscielny, Evra, Pogba, Matuidi, Sissoko, Griezmann, Payet, GiroudSubstitutes: Mandanda, Jallet, Cabaye, Gignac, Martial, Schneiderlin, Mangala, Digne, Coman, CostilIceland XI: Halldorsson, Saevarsson, Arnason, Ragnar Sigurdsson, Skulason, Gudmundsson, Gunnarsson, Gylfi Sigurdsson, Birkir Bjarnason, Sigthorsson, BodvarssonSubstitutes: Kristinsson, Hauksson, Hermannsson, Ingason, Finnbogason, Sigurjonsson, Theodor Elmar Bjarnason, Magnusson, Hallfredsson, Traustason, Gudjohnsen, JonssonFrance v Iceland is live on talkSPORT from 7pm (8pm kick-off) – check here for the various ways to follow the gamelast_img read more

CFPB Architect Officially Launches Bid for Senate

first_img It’s official: “”Elizabeth Warren””:http://www.elizabethwarren.com/announcement?sc=ad_g_nat_s_ad2_h&gclid=CMC2iKipoKsCFVsS2godM0kVmA will mount a bid for the Senate as a Democratic candidate. If she makes it through a crowded primary, the “”Consumer Financial Protection Bureau””:http://www.consumerfinance.gov/ (CFPB) architect, onetime presidential advisor, and political lightning rod for the right will face off against “”Sen. Scott Brown””:http://scottbrown.senate.gov/public/ (R-Massachusetts) over the 2012 election year.[IMAGE]””I’m going to do this,”” candidate Warren declared Wednesday in her “”announcement video””:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wx2H31ZgkIQ, available via an official feed that links to her campaign Web site. “”I’m going to run for the United States Senate.”” The Harvard law professor made fighting for the middle class her mantra, saying that “”middle-class families have been chipped at, hacked at, squeezed, and hammered for a generation now.””She described Washington, D.C. ├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├óÔé¼┼ô a place she knows all too well after a high-profile and ultimately failed nomination bid to head up the CFPB ├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├óÔé¼┼ô as “”rigged for big corporations that hire armies of lobbyists.””””President Barack Obama””:http://www.whitehouse.gov/administration/president-obama “”withdrew””:https://themreport.com/articles/obama-bumps-warren-taps-cordray-for-cfpb-2011-07-18 Warren from a stalled nomination process in August after nearly a year of back-and-forth hearings, flare-ups with lawmakers, and a pledge by 44 Republican senators to prevent her confirmation and the confirmation of any nominee for the top job.Nominating former Ohio attorney general Richard Cordray to take her place, Obama, standing then with Warren in the White House rose garden, praised her for her “”sheer force of will, intelligence, and a bottomless well of energy”” in her efforts to standup the CFPB.[COLUMN_BREAK]By declaring her candidacy, Warren pits her celebrity status with liberal supporters and those in favor of financial services regulations against establishment support for Brown, who more recently lost Tea Party backing when he sided with Senate Democrats in recent votes, according to _The Daily Beast_.She also arrives with a fresh bag of donations, totaling approximately $100,000, a money-bomb from a liberal Political Action Committee that “”announced””:https://themreport.com/articles/pac-raises-100k-for-elizabeth-warren-senate-run-2011-08-16 the contribution in August. By comparison, filings by Brown boast over “”$10 million””:http://www.opensecrets.org/politicians/summary.php?cid=N00031174&cycle=2012 in campaign funds ready to deploy against the CFPB architect. The “”GOP party for Massachusetts””:http://www.massgop.com/index.php came out swinging with a statement before Warren made her announcement, with Chairman Jennifer Nassour alleging a string of failures for the new candidate and relating her to Martha Coakley, who lost the seat to Brown in 2009.””These embarrassing mistakes call into question whether Professor Warren and her DC-based [sic] supporters have what it takes to survive for the next year in the crowded Democratic party,”” she said in a “”statement””:http://www.massgop.com/index.php?id=120&newsid=218.Before she can go toe-to-toe with Brown, the new candidate will need to come out on top in an already-crowded Democratic primary. She joins a field of six other candidates well into the race but lacking her star power.And if she wins in a general election? If Warren is faithful to her past remarks and testimony, supporters and opponents alike should bank on the tireless consumer financial protection advocate going to bat for her brainchild and the legal framework at large.””_The Washington Post_””:http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2011/03/16/AR2011031602268.html quoted Warren as once telling a congressional committee that “”[f]or too long, regulation has been described as undermining the free market. This is wrong.””The _Post_ quoted her as adding, “”Good regulation is not about impeding market forces; it is about channeling those forces to make the market work better. Good regulation is not about retribution designed to make an industry suffer; it is about rooting out deception and promoting transparency so that honest competition actually works.”” September 15, 2011 416 Views Agents & Brokers Attorneys & Title Companies Consumer Financial Protection Bureau Elizabeth Warren Lenders & Servicers Movers & Shakers Processing Service Providers 2011-09-15 Ryan Schuette CFPB Architect Officially Launches Bid for Senatecenter_img in Government, Origination, Secondary Market, Servicing Sharelast_img read more
