Parliament Remembers Dudley Thompson

first_imgRelatedParliament Remembers Dudley Thompson RelatedArchives Critical to Jamaica’s History RelatedParliament Remembers Dudley Thompson FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail The late Ambassador, the Hon. Dudley Thompson, will be accorded an official funeral by the Government of Jamaica. This was disclosed by Prime Minister, the Most Hon. Portia Simpson Miller, on Tuesday (January 24), during a parliamentary tribute to Ambassador Thompson in the House of Representatives. She said details of the funeral will be announced at a later date. Ambassador Thompson died on Friday (Jan. 20) one day after his 95th birthday. In her tribute, Mrs. Simpson Miller noted that the late Ambassador had a distinguished diplomatic career and served as Jamaica’s envoy to West Africa, specifically to Nigeria, Ghana, Sierra Leone, and Namibia. “He was regarded as a world citizen; a Pan Africanist to the core and a freedom fighter.  Mr. Thompson was a well-respected diplomat and a consummate statesman, who had the distinction of being considered a friend… (by) African leaders,” Mrs. Simpson Miller said. She stated that as a dedicated politician and public servant, he was awarded the Order of Jamaica for distinguished service in the field of International Affairs. She said he was a “serious liberationist”, who contributed significantly to the independence struggles in Belize and the Bahamas and was an integral part of the team which crafted and implemented the laws, which led to the social transformation of Jamaica during the 1970s.   “In spite of all his accomplishments, he was a decent human being, who placed himself firmly on the side of the marginalised and oppressed and dedicated his life to the development of his people,” Mrs. Simpson Miller stated. Leader of the Opposition, Mr. Andrew Holness, in his contribution, said Ambassador Thompson had made significant contribution to national development. “I want to pay tribute to him firstly as a nationalist par excellence. He was prominent among those who searched passionately for the Jamaican identity and for whom Jamaica was the centre of his being. He served his country with passion and distinction. It is often stated that we do not choose our roles in life but we have a duty to play them well. Ambassador Thompson played many roles and he played them all very well,” he added. Born in Panama on January 19, 1917 to Daniel and Ruby Thompson, Ambassador Thompson was a life member of the People’s National Party (PNP), and was elected Chairman of the PNP in 1979. He was a PNP Senator in the years 1962-1978, and was leader of Government Business in the House of Representatives in 1978.  He served as Member of Parliament for St. Andrew Western from 1978 to 1983; Minister of National Security in 1978; Minister of Mining and Natural Resources from 1977 to 1978 and Minister of State, with the responsibility for Foreign Affairs from 1972-1975. Mr. Thompson was Jamaica’s Ambassador to Nigeria, Ghana, Sierra Leone, and Namibia. He was Jamaica’s chief representative in the conference on the Law of the Sea and played a leading role in securing Jamaica as the permanent headquarters for the International Seabed Authority. He also introduced the Office of the Ombudsman to Jamaica. At the time of his death, Mr. Thompson was the President of the World Africa Diaspora Union.

Lodge leaves field in his wake

first_imgWe played off the blue tees, which makes it a long course but some of our members made it look very easy.  Teddy Lodge went round in 2 over gross to score 44pts off his 10 handicap, his last time off that handicap for a while!  Pat Culloty had 39pts off 21 and then Sean Connolly (10), John Chambers (8) and Barney Sheedy (11) all had 37pts.  Great scoring on a long course!Ted Lodge.There were also eight ‘2’s recorded, which was also amazing.1st Ted Lodge 44pts2nd Pat Culloty 39 pts3rd Sean Connolly 37pts4th John Chambers 37pts5th Barney Sheedy 37pts‘2’s:  Teddy Lodge (2), Pat Culloty, John Chambers, Terry Kelly, Frank McGowan, Declan Kelly.Tuesday, Jan. 15, Pattana – StablefordToday we were at Pattana, another beautiful course and in excellent condition.  We played A and B courses, probably the best and most difficult 9’s there.Again one of our members made it look easy; John McKenna had 40pts off his 17 handicap and won at a canter.  He was the only one to break his handicap, the next best being John Chambers playing off 8 with 36pts.  Barney Sheedy (off 11) got third with 34 on a count back, beating Pat Culloty (21) and Jack Beehan (15) into fourth and fifth respectively.Despite a large group there were no ‘2’s today in contrast to Sunday when most of the same people played and we had 8, so a carry over to Greenwood on Thursday.1st John McKenna 40pts2nd John Chambers 36pts3rd Barney Sheedy 35pts4th Pat Culloty 34pts5th Jack Beehan 34ptsThursday, Jan. 17, Greenwood (white tees) – StablefordWe were up at Greenwood today where we played the B and C courses.  Again the course was in beautiful condition but was playing long, which was reflected in the scores.  Only one player managed to equal or better his handicap and some of the ones who came in with big scores earlier in the week came in today with very different numbers.What a difference a day makes!  We had a rollover today in the 2’s from Pattana and while the scoring today wasn’t as good as in Pattana, two players managed to get one each for a big payday.Mark O’Callaghan, on his first outing with us, came in with 38pts and won by a clear margin.  Well done Mark!  The next best was Ted Morris with 34pts and Frank McGowan came in third with 33.  Taking fourth with 30pts was Gilbert Brossnan who had just arrived on Tuesday evening and quickly made his mark.1st Mark O’Callaghan (18) 38pts2nd Ted Morris (15) 34pts3rd Frank McGowan (16) 33pts4th Gilbert Brossnan (21) 30pts5th Frank McGowan (16) 30pts‘2’s:  Ted Morris and Fred O’Connor.Note:  The Tara Court Golf Group plays every Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday, leaving O’Gara’s Bar and Restaurant in The Tara Court on Pratumnak Rd around 10.00 a.m.  Sign up either in O’Gara’s or ring George on 087 540 0844 and he will book you in.

Killester join Templeogue at the top of the table while Killorglin cause the upset…

first_imgKeane’s SuperValu Killorglin got back to winning ways in style in Kerry on Saturday evening as they ran out 81-79 point winners over UCC Demons in a thriller. Having led proceedings for most of the game, Killorglin were up 43-34 at half time, and pushed this lead out to 15 points going into the last, 65-50.  However, the experience of Demons showed down the stretch with Colin O’Reilly and Brandon Watts hitting some big scores to ensure the game was in the melting pot and, with 42 seconds on the clock they brought it back to a two-point game, before tying proceedings with less than three seconds to go. Killorglin got the all important final two points before the end of regulation to see home a memorable win.Speaking afterwards, Killorglin boss Ignas Sijanas stated: “Tonight’s game was a fantastic advertisement for basketball. We played really well tonight, but Demons just kept coming back on us. We’re delighted with the win and are really looking forward to Tralee now next week.”Elsewhere, DCU Saints eased home to a 91-71 point win over Maree at the university on Saturday evening. Mike Bonaparte, Tariq Guebaili and Martins Provizors put in solid displays for the Dubliners as they drove into an early 23-6 point lead at the end of the first and saw off some late Maree pressure to bring home the win. Reflecting on the clash, Saints’ head coach Joey Boylan said: “I’m very happy with the win, it’s a nice way to go into the New Year and it was a big win for us as it sees us take another step up the table. I thought our defence especially in the first quarter was really really good which helped our offense. Hopefully that keeps going for next week now.”C and S Neptune and Garvey’s Tralee Warriors dished up an absolute thriller in Cork in the final Super League game of the weekend, with nothing separating the sides from very early on. Neptune trailed by six points going in at half time but, by the end of the third, Tralee’s lead was cut back to just one point (68-69) heading into the last. A nail-biting fourth quarter ensued before Warriors finally edged a bit of breathing space on the scoring at the death to win out by three, 92-95. Tralee’s Pat Price stated afterwards: “Tonight was a hard-earned win. Neptune are the league’s most-improved team and a win on the road is a great way to start the second half of the season.”A big Limerick derby was one of the highlights of the weekend in the Men’s Division One as Limerick Celtics hosted LIT on Saturday night in a hugely-anticipated game.The game lived up to all expectations and produced huge excitement as it was won by LIT on a buzzer-beating three pointer, with Conal Broderick the hero of the hour for the visitors with his long-range effort seeing them home to a 92-94 point victory.Indeed, it was LIT who had the better of the opening exchanges, driving into a 36-51 point lead at half time, thanks to good scoring from EgidijusBaksys, Matt Scamuffo and Broderick, but Celtics were not going down without a fight and by the end of the third, the gap was back to just four points teeing up a thrilling final quarter. A 31-point display from Celtics’ John Galvin coupled with 25 points from Shane O’Connell looked like they were going to help see the hosts home to glory and, with four seconds to play, Galvin kept his cool from the free throw line to put Celtics ahead by a point. Broderick was not letting the game go that easily though and his three-point shot just before the buzzer saw LIT win the game by two.“I’m so delighted with the win,” said a thrilled LIT coach, Mike Hickey afterwards.“It was a highly competitive game and it was a great way for us to finish 2018 with a win on the buzzer!“We have been working really hard at developing this newly-formed LIT team, and are now reaping the rewards of our efforts. We have a great group of players and management. We’ve performed really well in our last two games and we fully intend to learn and build on these two positive performances. We’re really looking forward to our games in 2019.”Staying in Limerick and UL Sports Eagles also secured the win on Saturday night, running out 74-57 point winners over WIT Vikings. Tarchee Brown was the stand out on the night for Eagles once more, finishing the game on 27 points, and a big 12-point game from underage international star, Nate Moore and a solid display from Diarmuid O’Shea saw Eagles home to victory in the end.Speaking afterwards, head coach, Matt Hall was happy to get the win: “I’m really happy to get the win, and while our performance wasn’t great, it’s good to end the year on a high. It’s great for this young team to get another win on the board and make all their hard work worthwhile.”Elsewhere, DBS Éanna remain unbeaten at the top of the northern conferenceafter running out comprehensive 123-50 point winners over Gamefootage.net Titans on Saturday evening thanks to a 39-point display from Stefan Zecevic and 21 points from Joshua Wilson.Tradehouse Central Ballincollig also head into 2019 unbeaten this season, as they ran out dominant 70-104 point winners over Portlaoise Panthers late on Sunday afternoon.Ej Sligo All Stars secured a massive home win against Abbey Seals Dublin Lions on Saturday evening meanwhile, edging the visitors 80-77 at the final buzzer.  A superb game between the two sides saw nothing between them right down to the final seconds, but 26 points from Zack Yonda, coupled with a combined 29-point game from Tobi Brockmann and Connor McClenaghan saw Sligo win out by three in the end.KUBS secured a big home win on Saturday evening, winning out 101-70 over visitors LYIT Donegal thanks to a 34-point game from Elijah Tillman and a huge 20-point game from Irish Under 18 star, Cillian O’Driscoll. Sunday afternoon saw Bad Bobs Tolka Rovers take home a big road win over Ulster University Elks, running out 53-83 point winners in the end. A big 25-point game from Oisin O’Reilly coupled with solid performances from Justin Goldsborough and Paul Caffrey saw Tolka into a comfortable 27-45 lead at half time and they drove on from there.

first_imgPat Connaughton has incredible block vs. Butler.One of – if not, the – plays of the NCAA Tournament, thus far, was made by Notre Dame senior forward Pat Connaughton during the Fighting Irish’s third round game vs. Butler.With less than two seconds remaining in regulation and the score tied, 55-55, Connaughton swatted a game-winning 3-point attempt by Kellen Dunham.

Al Quds, key to peace, beating heart of Palestine, Mahmoud Abbas

first_imgMarrakech – The city of Al Quds is the key to peace, the beating heart of the State of Palestine, and its eternal capital, which should be the foundation and the basis of the ties of Arab and Islamic countries with the different countries of the world, said President of the State of Palestine, Mahmoud Abbas.Speaking, Friday in Marrakech, at the opening ceremony of the 20th meeting of Al-Quds Committee, held under the chairmanship of His Majesty King Mohammed VI, the Palestinian president warned against the severity of threats facing Al-Quds and Al-Aqsa Mosque, stressing the duty of all the parties in the defense of the holy city.“Al-Aqsa has never been threatened this way before, the Israeli occupation has unprecedentedly stepped up, what it sees as its ultimate battle in its war aimed at removing the Arab, Islamic and Christian character of Al Quds,” he said. Abbas said Israel seeks to expand the Jewish presence by setting up more settlements and impoverishing the holy city through the destruction of its infrastructure and its economic resources.He emphasized the importance of strengthening the infrastructure of the holy city by carrying out projects dedicated to support schools, social and cultural institutions, and health facilities.Al Quds Committee, an offshoot of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, is holding its 20th session from January 17 through 18.Foreign ministers of the committee member-states, the OIC secretary general, High-level emissaries representing the UN Security Council permanent member-states, the EU, the Vatican, the UN and the Arab league are attending the Marrakech meeting.last_img read more

Penn State football fans enjoy unbelievable welcome from Ohio State fans

Penn State football fans had more to be happy about than the Nittany Lions’ 20-14 win Saturday at Ohio Stadium. Less than two weeks ago, the PSU community was rocked by the revelation that former defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky was charged with sexually abusing children by Pennsylvania Attorney General Linda Kelly. A sizeable contingent of Nittany Lions fans attended a game away from Beaver Stadium in State College, Pa., Saturday and said their trip to the ‘Shoe was made more pleasant by the respect and good behavior that was shown to them by Buckeye Nation. In connection with the charges levied against Sandusky, PSU’s president for finance and business Gary Schultz and athletic director Tim Curley were also charged with perjury and failure to report child abuse. Former university President Graham Spanier resigned in the wake of the charges being made public and former Nittany Lions’ coach Joe Paterno, NCAA Division I’s all-time wins leader and the head coach of PSU football for 46 years, was fired. It has been a tumultuous time for PSU students and fans, including Cristen Mohn, 20, of Steelton, Pa., a third-year PSU student in nursing. Mohn said the last two weeks have been hard for Nittany Lions fans, describing the experience as “unreal.” “It was just kind of like shock a little bit,” said Mohn, who is currently dating fellow Steelton native and PSU junior defensive lineman Jordan Hill. “It’s just depressing. It’s gloomy. It’s just not the same knowing that all this is going on.” Mohn also said that Buckeyes fans she encountered around Columbus were welcoming and supportive of the PSU community. “We haven’t had any bad experiences,” Mohn said. “Everyone is saying ‘Thank you for coming.’ Some people were saying to us, ‘Penn State is still great school.’ Everybody that we’ve run into has been awesome.” NCAA president Mark Emmert announced Friday that the NCAA would investigate “Penn State’s exercise of institutional control over its intercollegiate athletics programs,” according to multiple reports. Nittany Lions fan Matt Curtis, 22, of Philipsburg, Pa., said that he expects harsh penalties to be administered to PSU football. “As a university, you hope (PSU) can put everything together. It’s an institutional problem and there’s no reason to punish the players on the field,” Curtis said. “And they probably had to be done with Paterno. He deserved to be fired if he did turn the other cheek, if that’s the case.” Like Mohn, Curtis said that he too was welcomed to campus on Saturday, and that some OSU fans even engaged him with popular PSU football chants. “Everyone’s been unbelievable,” Curtis said. “Every time we walk by, somebody’s yelling, ‘We are,’ or ‘Welcome.’ I’m not going to lie, I’ve heard some horror stories from Ohio Stadium, but, so far, the fans have been awesome.” Dave Stock, 25, of Pittsburgh, Pa., graduated from PSU with a telecommunications degree in 2008. Stock said that it has been painful for him to watch the situation in State College unfold. “As a fan, it’s frustrating. We had an aura of ‘success with honor’ — that was (Paterno’s) mantra,” Stock said. “On the road, (PSU fans) would be looked at a little differently.” Stock couldn’t deny that he received a surprisingly warm welcome upon arriving in Columbus. “It’s been absolutely great, so far,” he said. “It’s been very classy. I have nothing but good things to say, and I never thought I would say that about Ohio State fans.” read more

Harry Kane is not a machine says Erik Lamela

first_imgErik Lamela has risen to the defence of under-fire Tottenham teammate Harry Kane by insisting that it’s only a matter of time before he hits top form againThe English striker had another disappointing game on Tuesday night and was unable to have an impact as Spurs’ lost the opening game of their 2018/19 Champions League campaign 2-1 away to Inter Milan.After being crowned the World Cup Golden Boot winner at Russia this summer, Kane has now gone five games without finding the net for both club and country.The 25-year-old did little to improve matters for himself at the San Siro, but Lamela believes that Kane shouldn’t have to bear the scoring burden for Spurs by himself.Top 5 Atletico Madrid players to watch in next week’s UCL Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 14, 2019 With the Champions League about to start, we need to start talking about the Top 5 Atletico Madrid players to watch in the competition.Atletico…“Harry is not a machine. He scores a lot. He always scores,” Lamela told BT Sport.“Here he didn’t and for two or three games he didn’t. But he will score again.“It’s not like Harry needs to score every single game.
