Trotman, who has pursued computer science studies at the LTI said he would like to study Geology at the University of Guyana.“It was an awesome experience especially knowing they have onshore and offshore drilling operations. Now since I’ve gathered a bit of knowledge from CGXExecutive Chairman of CGX Energy Inc, Professor Suresh Narine, engaging the Youths in Natural Resources at CGX Logistics YardManagers, they gave me courage to go on and do geology studies,” Trotman is quoted by the Department of Public Information as saying.Following their tour of CGX Energy Inc, the youths were in New Amsterdam to witness the handing over of play park equipment and trees by Natural Resources Minister Raphael Trotman towards the beautification of the Esplanade Park.The donation was made to the Mayor of New Amsterdam.

first_imgFor more email on the clinics, email fliddicoat@shaw.ca All participants attending either one of both clinics will leave eligible for the Technical I Certification.The event is also intended to help support local food banks, with a non-perishable food donation being the only cost to attend.Those in attendance are also asked to bring their baseball glove and running shoes, as the clinic is interactive.The two seminars will be held on Sunday, May 6, with registration for the Learning the Game portion open at 8:45 a.m. and the seminar beginning at 9 a.m. The second portion, Playing the Game, opens registration at 12:30 p.m. Both seminars will be held at the Fort St. John Field House.Advertisement The seminar recognizes that a lot of the coaches and managers involved in a little league season have very little, if not any, specific training to meet the multiple challenges of a baseball team. Those involved often use past experiences or trial and error to get the job done, and usually just learn on the job.Little League Canada says that such an approach is one of the main frustrations with the game to date.The “Teaching for Tomorrow” seminar will offer two sessions in an attempt to remedy this problem. The first, Learning the Game program, caters to children age 4-6, and will be conducted through a 90 minute practice, focusing on step-by-step approach with fun-filled, educational activities, as well as five key skills necessary for kids to learn the game.- Advertisement -The second seminar, Playing the Game, will focus on players ages 7-12, and will feature a 90 minute seminar, as well as step-by-step instructions to teach the fundamentals of ten appropriate skill drills, with a more personal approach on how to work with players and parents.The session will also focus on how to use the game of baseball to help with teaching children values on how to be fine citizens of tomorrow.Herback will personally be running the two sessions, giving the current or aspiring coaches and managers in attendance a unique opportunity to learn something in a fun-filled atmosphere.Advertisementlast_img read more

first_imgRyan Getzlaf and Teemu Selanne scored for the Ducks in the shootout, and Paul Kariya scored for Nashville. Erat, attempting to send the shootout to a fourth round, beat Giguere high and to the glove side. The puck hit nothing but iron, however. Ducks 3, Nashville 2 (SO)Wednesday: vs. Phoenix, 7 p.m. Prime, KLAA/830 He had been bailed out again during the Ducks’ 3-2 shootout victory over the Nashville Predators on Sunday night at the Honda Center. “I heard the puck hit the post, but I wasn’t sure if it was off the post and in or off the post and out,” Giguere said after Martin Erat’s shot in the third and final round of the shootout struck the right post and caromed away harmlessly. “I was just waiting for a reaction from somebody.” Erat’s miss enabled the Pacific Division-leading Ducks to sneak away with a come-from-behind victory that extended their lead to eight points over the second-place Dallas Stars. The Ducks also are nine points ahead of the third-place San Jose Sharks. Western Conference-leading Nashville was without Jason Arnott (flu), Peter Forsberg (upper body injury), Scott Hartnell (broken foot), David Legwand (upper body) and Steve Sullivan (back spasms). For the Ducks, second in the West, winning their first division title means avoiding a possible first-round playoff matchup against the Predators. For a while Sunday, it looked as if Giguere might cost them a game. He gave up questionable goals to Nashville’s Kimmo Timonen and J.P. Dumont and the Ducks faced a 2-0 deficit by the end of the first period. “The first goal was deflected … it was a tough play,” Giguere said. “The second goal was a bad goal. Things happen. We’re all human and we make mistakes.” Selanne scored on a breakaway 1:04 into the second period, George Parros earned a decision over Nashville’s Darcy Hordichuk in an entertaining fight 30 seconds later, and the Ducks soon seized control of the game. Dustin Penner’s deflection of Chris Pronger’s shot from the left point tied the score at 2-all at 3:26 of the third period. Penner’s goal was his fifth in the last four games and increased his franchise record for a rookie to 24 in a season. Giguere was grateful. “They bailed me out today,” he said. “I have to give credit to the guys. They could have hung their heads and said, `Well, the goalie doesn’t have it today. That’s it.’ ” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!

first_imgHere, AFP Sport looks at three things we learned from the World Cup today.Who wants to finish first in Group G?England’s thumping 6-1 win over Panama leaves them equal with Belgium on points, goal difference and goals scored ahead of the teams’ decisive meeting on Thursday.A draw in Kaliningrad would mean the group’s top two spots will be decided on disciplinary points, with England currently ahead on two yellow cards to Belgium’s three.The question is which spot is more advantageous? First place could meet in-form Colombia and then Germany in the quarter-finals while the runners-up may face Japan or Senegal, before potentially Mexico in the last eight.For now, it is all guesswork, of course, but whoever loses out between Belgium and England may not be overly worried.Panama offer a glimpse of super-sized World CupIn their debut tournament, Panama scored their first World Cup goal, no matter that it came when England were already six up. Panama’s fans celebrated it like a match-winner and who could begrudge them that after announcing themselves on the highest stage?For many, however, their drubbing was a glimpse of the future, in 2026, when the World Cup will expand from 32 to 48 teams, allowing more sides like Panama in.In fact, Panama’s ‘Concacaf’ zone, comprising of North and Central America and the Caribbean, will be one of the biggest winners, bumping their entrance up from three and a half teams to six.The colour and character of the competition will swell but, certainly in the early rounds, the cost is likely to be competitiveness.Lewandowski and Poland flop againOne of the more notable aspects of this World Cup so far has been the form of the forwards, with most of the Golden Boot favourites already off the mark.Cristiano Ronaldo, Harry Kane, Diego Costa, Romelu Lukaku, Antoine Griezmann, Luis Suarez and Neymar are all up and running but Robert Lewandowski looks set for more disappointment.Poland’s limp 3-0 loss to Colombia, coming after Japan had drawn 2-2 with Senegal, means they cannot progress. And while it is true Lewandowski does not enjoy the same service as his rivals, his status as one of the game’s deadliest predators has not been in evidence in Russia.His blunt display against a ruthless Colombia team was at least in keeping with the entire Polish performance.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Kane took control of the race for the Golden Boot as a ruthless England thrashed Panama © AFP / Dimitar DILKOFFSAINT PETERSBURG, Russian Federation, Jun 24 – Harry Kane scored a hat-trick as England thrashed Panama to seal qualification to the World Cup knock-out stage on Sunday.While Gareth Southgate’s side will join Belgium in the last 16, Group H is still up for grabs after Colombia eased past Poland and Japan drew with Senegal.last_img read more

first_imgFianna Fáil Spokesperson on Children Charlie McConalogue has criticised the education cuts announced today claiming that rural schools will bear a disproportionate cost.The Donegal North East TD said: “The budget cuts to the Department of Education will overwhelmingly fall on rural schools.  The disadvantaged schools mentioned are inevitably those within rural schemes.  Rural teachers will have listened to the budget speech and be forgiven for concluding that the needs of rural communities did not enter the Minister’s thinking.“All cuts in the primary pupil teacher ratio are being confined to schools of four teachers and fewer, the majority of which are found in rural areas and provincial towns.  At the same time, the only scheme which targets educational disadvantage in rural areas appears to have been singled out for the Minister’s axe. “Additionally, the doubling of school transport charges applies only to rural areas.“Even at third-level the anti-rural agenda is apparent.  The cuts in post-graduate grants involve removing the maintenance element of the grants.  This is something which rural students living away from home rely on more than any other group.“This suburban Dublin attitude to Education is extremely disappointing, will be counter-productive and should be stopped. I am urging the Minister to think again before making such a discriminatory cut,” said Deputy McConalogue.© 2011 donegaldaily.com, all Rights Reserved The copying, republication or redistribution of donegaldaily.com Content, including by framing or similar means, is expressly prohibited by law. Follow us on www.twitter.com/donegaldailyFollow us on www.facebook.com/donegaldailySell anything on www.donegaldailyclassifieds.comRURAL DONEGAL SCHOOLS HIT IN BUDGET – McCONALOGUE was last modified: December 6th, 2011 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:deputy charlie mcconaloguedonegal schoolsfianna failschoolslast_img read more

The former Donegal captain told us: “We finally secured premises and of course we had to have vetting in place and now with the brochures ready it has been a busy time for myself and Hugh McGinley.“We have top athletes signed up to come to the college but I don’t want to give any names away just yet. They’re from all over and we know that parents are paying a lot of money to send their kids to a course so we really want to give them as much as possible.”The father-of –two said he wanted to introduce a special sporting aspect to the course because so many kids are involved in clubs and in all kinds of sports.“Kids can get pulled in all directions when it comes to their clubs, training, playing and exams. We want to show them how they can manage their study time with their sport, provide nutritional information for them and show them that sport can be a release from study time and can have a positive impact on their time as well. “We have included aspects of sports psychology that will benefit kids doing their Junior or Senior certificate,” said Kevin.He acknowleged that the cost of summer colleges was hard for parents and said he hopes to be able to offer scholarships to students through their GAA clubs.Donegal County Council has opened its Gaeltacht Scholarship Scheme for 2012 and applications  must be returned by Friday March 23rd.For further information about Coláiste Chú Chulainn go to its websitewww.chuchulainn.com or email: info@chuchulainn.com.© 2012 donegaldaily.com, all Rights Reserved The copying, republication or redistribution of donegaldaily.com Content, including by framing or similar means, is expressly prohibited by law.Follow us on www.twitter.com/donegaldailyFollow us on www.facebook.com/donegaldailyGAA STAR CASSIDY LAUNCHES GAELTACHT SUMMER COLLEGE was last modified: February 27th, 2012 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:REVEALED: GAA STAR CASSIDY LAUNCHES GAELTACHT SUMMER COLLEGElast_img read more
