first_imgLATEST STORIES Cloudy skies over Luzon due to amihan Those two losses combined with wins for both Russia and Uruguay over Saudi Arabia confirmed the team’s elimination despite one final Group A match on Monday.Most of the expectation, and pretty much all of the hype, had been placed on the shoulders of the 26-year-old Salah, who scored 44 goals in 51 games for Liverpool and was named Premier League player of the year.But he clearly lacked match fitness in his World Cup debut, only showing a few glimpses of the speed and marksmanship he has displayed over the last year. Still, he was by far the most dangerous of Egypt’s forward trio even if he was missing the kind of service he normally receives at Liverpool.Cuper said Salah had not undergone the intense training his teammates had in the three weeks prior to the World Cup. He missed warm-up matches against Kuwait, Colombia and Belgium.Salah apart, Egypt typically gave the ball away too easily, didn’t threaten and made defensive blunders that belied the solid reputation of a back four led by West Bromwich Albion defender Ahmed Hegazy.ADVERTISEMENT Jury of 7 men, 5 women selected for Harvey Weinstein rape trial “I always say that behind a player there must be a team,” Egypt coach Hector Cuper said after Tuesday’s 3-1 loss to host Russia. “I feel proud we had a team, but perhaps we weren’t decisive enough.”Salah was hurt last month in the Champions League final. He dressed for the opening match, but sat on the bench as Egypt held Uruguay scoreless for 89 minutes.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkSPORTSTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crownEventually, however, Uruguay scored and won.Salah started the second match against Russia and even scored from the penalty spot, but the host nation also proved to be too much.

(AP Photo/Martin Meissner)ST. PETERSBURG, Russia — Egypt arrived in Russia with Mohamed Salah and some high expectations.The team, playing at the World Cup for the first time since 1990, was sure it had the ability to grind out results, even with Salah still recovering from a shoulder injury. But after two matches, the Egyptians were eliminated.ADVERTISEMENT Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award Jiro Manio arrested for stabbing man in Marikinacenter_img Christopher Tolkien, son of Lord of the Rings author, dies aged 95 Egypt’s run to the World Cup, and the sensational exploits of Salah in both the shirt of the national team and Liverpool, raised the level of soccer madness back at home recently.The results in Russia have divided the millions of fans in Egypt who have been captivated by the squad since qualification in October, with one side being harshly critical while others resign themselves to the limitations of the team.News of the opening loss to Russia made the front page of every Cairo daily, but the tone varied.Careful not to allow the result to deepen popular discontent over a recent wave of steep price hikes for fuel, drinking water and electricity, the staunchly pro-government Al-Youm Al-Sabae, or Seventh Day, ran the headline: “You have done us proud.”But the independent Al-Shorouk said the team was “clinically” out of the tournament.Sports commentators and social media users, whose views are often more reflective of the mood on the streets, blamed Cuper’s tactics, his selection of players and a large group of wealthy businessmen, actors and TV personalities who they accuse of distracting the players the day before the game against Russia by staying at the team’s hotel in St. Petersburg.“Who allowed this chaos at the squad’s hotel?” said Ibrahim Fayeq, a sports anchor at a private TV channel. “And who convinced these celebrities that their presence was so essential for Egypt to win?” MOST READ Volcano watch: Island fissures steaming, lake water receding Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Bicol riders extend help to Taal evacuees Taal victims get help from Kalayaan town Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

first_imgBy Andrew CarmichaelJust one day after regional authorities said that there is no danger of flooding at Black Bush Polder, Berbice, during the rainy season, a section of the area was under water on Friday.These two schoolgirls were forced to remove their footwear as they navigated through mud and water to attend schoolOn Thursday, Regional Chairman David Armogan told Guyana Times that the region has the capacity to drain the Black Bush Polder, not only in terms of gravitational flow but also by means of electrical pumps.However, on Friday morning the polders of Johanna and Yakasary were inundated after a few hours of heavy rainfall.Cash crop farmers and those in the residential areas were the worst affected by the floodwaters. Also affected were some rice and poultry farmers.Residents are pointing an accusing finger at the National Drainage and Irrigation Authority (NDIA), which has the responsibility for the three main canals that drain the four polders.Determined to save their herd: These two men guide their sheep through floodwatersSome of the sluice doors are silted and up to Friday afternoon could not be opened. Additionally, outfall channels at Adventure, Eversham and Number 43 Village are all blocked with silt. The pump at Number 43 Village is also out of operation.These issues were all highlighted by this publication earlier in the month.On Friday, several farmers were seen pumping water out of their farms and building embankments to prevent overtopping. The drainage system was ineffective since the two polders were filled to capacity.The way home for many involved paddling through floodwaters.Snakes and alligators have also been prevalent over the past day with farmers reporting their livestock being captured and eaten.This young man makes his way through floodwaters at Black Bush PolderNermalla Ramsarran, a mother of three of Yakasary, said she could not cook for her children on Friday because of the floodwaters.“I go to cook egg curry and the whole place flood out…look all the wood right here and it wet.”Her children had to contend with crackers for lunch and dinner.Sharmilla Davi Pooran, a cash crop farmer, told Guyana Times that she and her husband cultivate ochro and during the morning her husband had to use a pump to get most of the water out of the farm.She noted that they also cultivate rice, which was hit by a paddy bug infestation during the last crop.“We get nothing from rice and now it look like we nah gon get nothing from garden,” she said while adding that they cannot afford to continue pumping water out of the farm as the rains continue.“How much diesel we gon able buy?”Children walking through floodwatersSudeen Ramnauth called “Lil Boy” of Yakasary also said his crop was under water.“I got to pump water, since morning my skin soak and I pumping water.” He said the canal which takes water to the sluice at Number 43 Village is clogged with vegetation. He added that the outfall channel needs desilting urgently.Ramnauth also expressed concern that the pump at Number 43 Village was not being used to assist in getting the water out to the sea.Raymond Joseph, a rice and cash crop farmer of Yakasary, explained that the rise in water was rapid and it has not been receding since Thursday.“Instead of going down it coming up more; we are in need of relief here right now. Everything in the garden under water, I have to call off the garden now; I can’t get anything.”He noted that the rice is also under threat despite it being the start of the crop.“The rice in jeopardy; it is young rice – the seedling that lately shy. If rain fall again I might have to move out from here because the water come up right to the bottom house [lower flat]. Something needs to be done in here right now because this water is not going down. It is very dangerous here right now. Then you would find people getting sick because it is this water people have to walk in; the children have to walk in this same water to go to school.”Former Chairman of the Black Bush Polder’s Neighbourhood Democratic Council (NDC), Takoor Persaud explained that over the past five months there was no maintenance to the Yakasary main drainage canal, which is currently clogged. Both Johanna and Yakasary use that canal for drainage“Also, the outfall channel and upstream have been silted due to the long dry spell.”As it relates to the current rice crop, eighty per cent of it has already begun and the farmers need drainage to get the excess water out of their rice fields.He explained that the NDIA has commenced cleaning the outfall channel, however, with the heavy rainfall and the rice farmers pumping the excess water out, the residential areas are being affected.“Presently the water is just pouring into the residential areas thus causing more flooding affecting cash crop and livestock.”He noted that had the main drainage canal at Yakasary been maintained as of January, there would not have been so much water in Johanna and Yakasary.last_img read more

first_imgTributes have poured in for retired Donegal player Rory Kavanagh.The GAA fraternity in Donegal have taken to social media accounts to express both their disappointment and gratitude to Rory Kavanagh who has decided to retire from inter-county football after fourteen years.Kavanagh has been a wonderful servant to Donegal over the years and was an exceptional player.Kavanagh was a pivotal figure during Jim McGuinness’s trophy laden era and played a crucial role in Donegal winning their first All-Ireland title in twenty years when they defeated Mayo in 2012. He also helped Donegal win three Ulster SFC titles, the last of which came in July last summer when Donegal defeated Monaghan.He could have retired a double All-Ireland winner but Donegal were narrowly defeated to Kerry in the final.It was to be Kavanagh last appearance in a Donegal jersey.GAA commentators, players and politicians have taken to Facebook or Twitter to pay tribute to St Eunan’s clubman. Charlie Collins posted, “Sorry to hear of Rory Kavanagh’s decision to retire from inter county football.“He has given our County great service for many years and is still one of the best midfielders in the Country. ‪#‎willbemissed‬Eamon McGee tweeted a picture of Kavanagh on Twitter with the following tagline.“Without doubt one of the best players I’ve ever played with.Fianna Fáil Cllr Ciaran Brogan posted, “Sad to hear Rory stepping down from Donegal team, a great leader on and off the pitch and playing the football of his life. “Maybe we could get Joe Brolly to have a go again and Rory will return. What do you think of that Joe?Former teammate Ciaran Greene posted, “Best of luck to the main man Rory Kavanagh. #Skipper.Former MEP Pat ‘The Cope’ Gallagher also described Kavanagh as a wonderful servant and a great player to Donegal and thanked him for his years of service.Donegal supporter Mairead Browne posted, “Big loss for Donegal, enjoy your retirement and thanks for your commitment over the years.

His future is the present

first_img At least that’s what he says, pointing out that the Clippers’ other key offseason acquisition, Cuttino Mobley, also helps as a pseudo assistant. “Mike (Dunleavy) just wants to coach the team,” Cassell said last week. “If he feels like we’re out of shape, he can come talk to Cuttino or myself. We’re going to run when we have to run. If we’re not executing or if we have some bad practices, he has the right to tell us to run, and I’ll be the first one to get on line and run.” Sam Cassell has his future all figured out. He plans on leading the Clippers to the playoffs, playing three more years and then coaching. While a lot of players shy away from looking beyond the present, Cassell is the opposite. The benefit for the Clippers, who signed the former All-Star guard in the offseason, is that Cassell has a chance to live his future job now. When he’s on the court, it’s almost like having an assistant coach out there. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week Cassell and Dunleavy have at least one thing in common: They say point guards make the best coaches. Dunleavy, a former point guard, sees that he and Cassell mastered a position in which it is necessary to have full knowledge of the game. “I look at everyone on the court,” Cassell said. “Being a point guard on a basketball team, you’ve got to know just not your position, you’ve got to know everyone’s position. If one guy has a breakdown, it breaks the whole set down. I have to understand everyone’s position and demeanor on the court.” Cassell will turn 36 next month, and he said that wants to play three more seasons. Cassell, who missed 23 regular-season games last year with Minnesota because of a hamstring injury, indicated this could be his last season playing major minutes. Although Cassell is talkative during interviews and Mobley is more reserved, it is not necessarily that way on the court. “Cuttino – he’s real vocal,” Clippers forward Elton Brand said. “Sam is Sam. His leadership and his ingenuity and his knowledge of the game are something I’m not accustomed to. I haven’t played with a point guard who’s been a veteran in this game so long and who knows the ins and outs of this game as well as he does.” center_img Dunleavy says he is prejudiced to the idea that point guards make the best coaches. Following that thought, he thinks Cassell already has some qualities needed to be a good coach. “As far as his interaction with the players, he’s terrific,” Dunleavy said. “He does a good job of explaining situations and kind of what he wants done on the floor, playing with him. And that’s great because when I see him doing it, I know what he’s touching on, and I don’t have to go do it.” Joe Stevens, (562) 499-1338 joe.stevens@presstelegram.com 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
