Young Boys Coach Gerardo Seoane has revealed he wanted his team face a Juventus team that had Cristiano Ronaldo on the pitch.The Swiss side is in Turin to face Juve in their second Champions League group game, but CR7 is suspended after being sent off against Valencia.“We’re sad that Ronaldo isn’t there, it’s the same for any injured or suspended the player,” Seoane said in his pre-match Press conference.“It would have been nice for us to face him on the pitch, but if Ronaldo doesn’t play then another champion will because Juventus have good alternatives in every area.“It would have been nice to see him on the pitch though.”Seoane was asked if his side are nervous about taking on one of the favourites to win the competition.Juventus confirm Mario Mandzukic could leave this month Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Sporting director Fabio Paratici confirmed reports that Mario Mandzukic could leave Juventus for a move to an unnamed Qatari team.“The team is always focused, every game. We know that every day presents a new challenge and different opponents to face.“The players are very focused and I think the atmosphere can help a lot with that.“It’s a different situation [to Manchester United], we’re away for this one and there’s a big difference.“It’s our first Champions League and we know there isn’t much room for mistakes. We must always perform well, always make the right choices, and be attentive in both attack and defence.“Of course we know that the opponent matters too, so it’ll be a very difficult game.“[Jordan] Lotomba has been injured for some time and is unavailable, and also Kevin Mbabu is out for this game, unfortunately.”
Hurricane Jose Not A Threat to The Bahamas, For Now Bahamian music legend gunned down at home in Turks and Caicos Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppNassau, Bahamas, 25 Nov 2014 PRESS RELEASE (DEPARTMENT OF CIVIL AVIATION) – The public is advised that the Department of Civil Aviation is now in possession of a Preliminary Report on the Freeport, Grand Bahama aircraft crash which took the lives of nine persons, at approximately 5:00 p.m. on Sunday, November 9th, 2014. The narrative of that report is now being released by that Department. The report was prepared by the Air Accident Investigation and Prevention Unit (AAIPU) of the Department on November 20th, 2014, and it contains specifics on the aircraft and crew, and on the weather conditions and flight details.According to the AAIPU report, both pilots Captain Stanley Thurston, and First Officer Frahkan Cooper were licensed and certified by the Federal Aviation Administration, and were in possession of valid first class medical certificates, which were issued in November, 2014. Day instrument meteorological conditions prevailed upon the departure of the aircraft from Odyssey Aviation, and an instrument flight rules flight plan was filed for the 24 minute flight to Freeport. The Preliminary Report has also confirmed that The Bahamas Area Forecast published on November 9th, 2014 by The Bahamas Meteorological Department advised that there was a frontal boundary over the northwest Bahamas and lower, moving over the northern Bahamas.Details provided in the Preliminary Report indicate that the aircraft uploaded 160 gallons of fuel prior to its departure from Odyssey Aviation, was provided with the current weather conditions upon contact with Freeport Air Traffic Control, and was cleared for an instrument approach. However, the aircraft was unable to land in Freeport on its first attempt, due to heavy rain showers and reduced visibility, and the crew therefore executed a missed approach. It was during the return for the second approach, while attempting to visually locate the runway, and following deteriorating weather due to rain and haze, that the aircraft struck a crane in the Grand Bahama shipyard and crashed.The AAIPU is being assisted in its investigation by the National Transportation Safety Board, (NTSB) the Federal Aviation Administration, (FAA) and Bombardier, the manufacturer of the aircraft. The team will re-assemble at the NTSB Headquarters in Washington in December, 2014 to continue its investigations.Click HERE to get the AAIPU’s Preliminary Report.

Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 05 Aug 2015 – Police believe they are investigating a targeted attack on a 21 year old man, who was shot on the holiday Monday around 9:36pm. The 21 year old was shot in his arm and was treated at the Cheshire Hall Medical Center and is said to be in stable condition now. Although the young man is cooperating with the investigation, Police tell media they still need help in solving this one… the shooting took place near the old Smokey’s on Bay Road in Blue Hills. In another matter: Two were women robbed of their cell phones by a knife wielding duo on around 1am Tuesday. The two women were walking in the area of the down town ball park when they were approached by the men who are described as tall and stocky and short and slim. The suspects took off on foot and despite a reportedly extensive search of the area, the pair was not caught. No one is hurt, but here again Police need information on the two who ran off toward the Jambalaya Bar on Butterfield Drive. Police can be contacted at 941-8083 or by calling Crime Stoppers in Miami at 1-800-8477.

According to PDM Chairman, Doug Parnell it was an embarrassing scene for the MP and Border Control Minister, Hon Don Hue Gardiner who basically was unfamiliar with the law when he raised his objections. The law says you must be registered in the District to bring an objection. Doug Parnell, PDM National Chairman: “The Hon Donhue Gardiner was not entitled to bring those objections, so we prevailed on that point and we also feel we were given a fair hearing on other persons we claimed or objected to in the district. We are satisfied that the Supervisor of Elections and the team that was with him gave us a fair hearing.”About 40 people turned out to hear the proceedings of the Electors’ Court, Parnell added, “I want to say that I am very pleased at the turn out of persons who were interested in their democracy and the upcoming General Elections, we had a strong force and showing of our supporters in this district; we were very, very grateful to them for coming out; persons like Prince Selver, persons like Curalena Phillips and persons like Paul Higgs.” For various reasons, including that some of the electors were said to be resident outside of the country and outside of the constituency, Gardiner tried to have them removed for the voter’s list but when the PDM reminded the Elections Supervisor that one has to be resident in the constituency for their recommendation to stand, Gardiner’s challenges fell flat. Parnell told Magnetic Media yesterday that PDM challenges were for about 20 people, and were done within the confines of the law; they walked away from that elections court session satisfied, he said. So far Grand Turk North, Grand Turk South & Salt Cay and North and Middle have had their hearings. Next stop we understand is South Caicos.
Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#Bahamas, October 11, 2017 – Nassau – Minister of Youth, Sports and Culture the Hon. Michael Pintard commended award-winning Bahamian recording artist and producer ‘Sammi Starr’ Poitier for an initiative he’s undertaking that should encourage more Bahamian performers to follow their dreams. The Minister noted: “Sammi Starr is a gifted entertainer who has an incredible voice; he is as effective behind the scenes as a producer and a mentor for emerging performing artists.”“I wanted to meet with the Minister today to discuss working with young entertainers, young artists, and mentoring them and helping them get into music full time,” Sammi said during a recent courtesy call. “You know, give them some encouragement to let them know that there is an opportunity to make it as an entertainer – for income, exposure, and, of course, a lifetime career.”The purpose of meeting with Minister Pintard, Sammi continued, was to see if he could get the Ministry of Youth, Sports and Culture to be aligned with that vision and support it.“The Ministry of Youth, Sports and Culture is happy to collaborate with him as we seek to mentor emerging artists, continue to contribute to his success as an artist, and gain from his expertise as we seek to internationalise various genres of the arts,” Minister Pintard said.Sammi shared the stage with international recording artists such as Nicki Minaj, Rick Ross, Barrington Levy, and Diddy at “Miami’s Best of the Best 2010,” becoming one of the first Bahamians to perform at that concert event – and continuing to do so for more than 4 years. He has also won major talent shows including Charlotte, North Carolina’s “You Got Vocals,” the “2007 Junkanoo Song Competition” in The Bahamas, and the inaugural Music Masters Competition at Bahamas Junkanoo Carnival in 2015 – the latter of which resulted in his landing a recording contract with Sony Music Latin.Sammi also spoke highly of the talent of Bahamian performers. “The talent that we have in The Bahamas is unreal,” he said. “We have talent here that can be on the same stage as world-class entertainers – Grammy-award-winning entertainers. There is no question about it. They just need the exposure.”Sammi encouraged persons who want to work with him to contact him on social media, across various platforms.“This is one of the mandates for the rest of my career; so just get in touch with me,” Sammi said. “We will talk and hear you out about whatever your vision is as an entertainer, a musical artist or just an artist period.“We can talk about it and whatever I could do to help, I will.”Minister Pintard responded, “We believe that more Bahamian artists should contribute to taking our various forms of art internationally, and we are happy that Sammi Starr is committed to working with us in doing just that.”By: Eric Rose (BIS)Minister of Youth, Sports and Culture the Hon.

For over two years, the World Soy Foundation has been working with SunOpta, a Canadian based corporation, to bring soy nutrition to kids in need around the world. The most recent joint venture was a project in Selepe, South Africa—an area where 60 percent of households earn less than $9 per month. The project provides vital soy protein to those living in the surrounding community using a SoyCow processing machine, but the WSF has had a vision to expand the reach of the project to two local schools, reaching more than 450 children.The Grain Farmers of Ontario have jumped on board in support of this vision for Selepe. The support of the farmers of Ontario will not only help the WSF improve upon and expand the Selepe project, it will help engage the local community in nutrition discussions and raise awareness about the power of soy.The WSF is excited to welcome the Grain Farmers of Ontario to our list of supporters and is grateful for the opportunity to partner together to reduce malnutrition through the power of soy! A special thanks to these farmers as they accepted the challenge to become a part of the solution to the world’s greatest health risk, hunger!
OLYMPIA — Speculation that Gov. Chris Gregoire might be named to replace Solicitor General Elena Kagan raises the prospect of falling political dominoes in Washington state.If the governor’s mansion was suddenly up for grabs this year, candidates could be jumping in or out of races for the U.S. Senate and House.Seattle political consultant Christian Sinderman said that a Gregoire appointment would accelerate the timeline for anyone looking at the governor’s race in 2012.“You can imagine all the people trying to seize the moment of a shortened election cycle and jumping in,” said Sinderman, who works for Democratic candidates.President Barack Obama nominated Kagan for the Supreme Court on Monday. Almost immediately, there were whispers of Gregoire being on a short list of candidates. An official within the Obama administration confirmed to The Associated Press on Wednesday that Gregoire was among those being considered to replace Kagan, assuming she is confirmed by the Senate. The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, was not authorized to discuss internal deliberations, and had no information on the size or scope of the list or when a decision would be made.Gregoire spokesman Cory Curtis says no one from the White House has talked to Gregoire about the job, which is to essentially be the president’s lawyer before the Supreme Court.
A fight between boys basketball players from Hudson’s Bay and Mountain View high schools following their game Saturday night resulted in injuries and disciplinary action, although officials from both schools were vague on many of the details.The Columbian has confirmed that three Hudson’s Bay athletes have been disciplined. Citing privacy laws, Mick Hoffman, the athletic director and safety director of Vancouver Public Schools, said he could not be more specific.Two Mountain View players hurt in the melee did not play Tuesday night because of their injuries, according to school principal Mike Meloy. A female Mountain View student manager who got caught up in the altercation also required medical attention.Vancouver police have started an investigation, but as of Wednesday there were no charges filed.“Most of the time, in these types of cases, it’s often referred to the juvenile prosecutors and they’ll make a decision on whether they want to bring someone to court,” said Kim Kapp, spokeswoman for Vancouver Police.According to sources, the fight occurred approximately 30 minutes after the Thunder topped Hudson’s Bay 56-54 at Mountain View High School. The game itself was physical, with plenty of emotional swings. After the contest, facility officials had to deal with unruly fans. Later, when the Hudson’s Bay team was leaving MVHS, there were three Mountain View players nearby.
Going green has earned Vancouver’s Park Plaza Business Park more green, in the form of a $135,760 rebate.Clark Public Utilities issued the refund for the business park’s new energy-efficient heating, ventilation and air conditioning system. The money not only covered 70 percent of the $193,000 system’s cost, but the project delivered a few other payoffs as well, according to landlords of the six-building office park off Southeast Mill Plain Boulevard. The 17-year-old complex now uses 30 percent less energy with an HVAC system that entices new tenants and helps persuade existing companies to stick around longer.Park Plaza now maintains a high rate of occupancy in an otherwise soft leasing market, said Monique Still, asset manager for E.P. Properties, which owns the business park.“We are at 82 percent (occupancy) right now, and not getting even a quarter of the heating and cooling complaints we used to get,” Still said.Installed by Trane, the new system replaced an outdated relic that gobbled up energy at every change in outdoor air temperature, said Scott Vale, Park Plaza’s maintenance manager.That’s no longer a problem because the new system’s software calculates the amount of time it will take to heat up or cool down the buildings, and then runs accordingly.
SAN FRANCISCO — A powerful storm churned through Northern California Thursday, knocking out power to tens of thousands and delaying commuters while soaking the region with much-needed rain.In Santa Cruz, about an hour south of San Francisco, an elementary school student was trapped for about 15 minutes when an 80 foot tree fell on him, pinning his arm and shoulder until rescuers with chain saws cut it apart. He was taken to a hospital in good condition but likely a fractured arm, officials said.Throughout the Bay Area, waves slammed onto waterfronts, ferries were bound to their docks, many schools canceled classes and the gusting winds had motorists tightly gripping their steering wheels on the Golden Gate Bridge, where managers created a buffer zone to prevent head-on collisions by swerving cars.The iconic suspension bridge is engineered to swing in cross winds, and engineers were standing by, but “the concern we have right now is more about vehicles,” spokeswoman Priya David Clemens said.Pacific Gas & Electric reported more than 80,000 outages due to a single flooded substation in San Francisco, and but blackouts were much more widespread; 226,800 customers were without power. The utility’s online map showed lights out over thousands of square miles, from Humboldt near the Oregon border to Big Sur on the Central Coast.

Gates says 20 to 25 people were at the home when the gunfire began and detectives are conducting interviews to determine what happened.
