Leicester City’s Morgan will ‘give his best’ for Jamaica

first_imgLeicester City captain and Jamaica central defender, Wes Morgan, said he will be doing his best to replicate the successes he has been having at his English Premier League (EPL) team with the Reggae Boyz in their World Cup Qualifiers (WCQ).”International football is completely different. You meet up today and play a game a few days later. But with your club you play together week in week out and in terms of structure they are very organised. But it’s (WCQ) a challenge ahead of us and we have to do our best to win the games,” he told The Gleaner.”I always give my best and my all for the Jamaican team. I always want to make sure we qualify for the World Cup. But it’s going to take a group effort, it’s going to take everyone pulling together to try and win the games. If we do that there is no doubt we will come out with the victory and with the points.”We are going to try our best, that is all we can do. We know it will not be easy because Costa Rica is a very tough team, we have always had tough games against them, and they will want to do their best as well,” he continued.He believes that with the support of the 12th man (fans) victory, is much more attainable.”With the Jamaican people behind us and we (players) on top of our game and playing our best, we can come out with the win. We are in this together, we are all pulling in the same direction, which is to get to Russia World Cup, and it’s a long way to go. There will be ups and downs, but hopefully, there will be more ups and we can see through qualification,” he said.WINNING WAYSMeanwhile, the confident Leicester City defender believes things are shaping up nicely for his club to capture their first English Premier League (EPL) championship title and he has no doubt they can continue their winning ways.”We have always had that confidence and that belief, but sometimes you just need to get the breaks and I think this season everything has come together nicely. Some individuals are playing on top of their game and playing the best they have ever played, so it’s a combination of everything and the boys are full of confidence and just want to continue the good run,” he stated.- L.

Taylor fails twice but Thunder are on top

first_imgHOBART, Tasmania (CMC):West Indies captain Stafanie Taylor suffered a rare double failure with the bat, but her Sydney Thunder did enough to win twice in the inaugural Women’s Big Bash League here yesterday.In the first game of a doubleheader at the Kingston Twin Ovals, Thunder beat Brisbane Heat by five wickets in the first game and returned to defeat Hobart Hurricanes by eight runs in a night encounter.Both Thunder and Hurricanes sit top of the standings on 14 points with identical 7-2 records, but Thunder hold the edge courtesy of net run rate. Chasing an uncomplicated 95 for victory against Heat, Taylor was dismissed for a first-ball ‘duck’ as the visitors stumbled to 20 for three in the fifth over.However, Naomi Stalenburg stroked 42 and captain Alex Blackwell an unbeaten 32 in a 60-run fourth-wicket partnership which rescued the innings.Heat had earlier fallen for 94 all out off their 20 overs, with 19-year-old left-arm spinner Maisy Gibson taking three for 14.Taylor claimed one wicket for six runs from two overs of off-spin.In the second game at Bellerive Oval, Taylor managed just eight as Thunder reached 135 for seven off their 20 overs after opting to bat first.Stalenburg was again among the runs with a cavalier 37 off 16 deliveries, including five fours and two sixes.In reply, Hurricanes were restricted to 127 for eight off their 20 overs, with Taylor’s West Indies teammate Hayley Matthews scoring 11.Captain Heather Knight top-scored with 26.Taylor produced a crucial spell, picking up two for 27 from four overs, to help cripple the Hurricanes run chase.last_img read more

Dortmund rout Stuttgart to close on second-placed Schalke

first_imgPulisic, a fully-fledged US international at just 19, gave Dortmund the lead against mid-table Stuttgart at a sun-soaked Signal Iduna Park.His cross dipped over Stuttgart goalkeeper Ron-Robert Zieler to crash in off the post on 38 minutes.“I actually wanted to hit the far post — which I sort of did — it wasn’t so wrong in the end,” joked Pulisic.His fortuitous effort was the highlight of a below-par performance from Peter Stoeger’s Dortmund who were lucky to lead at the break.It was a totally different story after half-time as the hosts took the game by the scruff of the neck.Belgium striker Michy Batshuayi, on loan from Chelsea until the end of the season, made it 2-0 just three minutes into the second half as Dortmund flew out of the blocks.Batshuayi delicately flicked the ball into the path of Nuri Sahin, who returned the pass to the Belgian in the box for a simple tap-in from close range to leave Stuttgart on the ropes.Dortmund finished the visitors off when Pulisic headed back to Maximilian Philipp, whose first effort was parried by Zieler, but the winger tucked home the rebound with an hour played.It was Philipp’s first goal since November, when he also scored in a 2-1 defeat at Stuttgart.Batshuayi, who has now scored seven goals in nine league games since arriving in January, could have added another soon after when he fired wide.Stuttgart striker Mario Gomez threatened the Dortmund goal when he clipped the crossbar five minutes before the final whistle.Dortmund’s win sets them up nicely for the derby.They want to avenge their 4-4 draw at home to Schalke, who scored four goals without reply, last November.A win in Gelsenkirchen would boost Dortmund’s goals for the rest of the season.“We want to qualify for the Champions League and if possible finish second,” said Sahin.On Saturday, Bayern Munich were confirmed as Bundesliga champions for the sixth straight year as their 4-1 win at Augsburg left them 20 points clear with only five games left.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000American teenager Christian Pulisic sent Dortmund on their way to a comfortable win over Stuttgart © AFP / Patrik STOLLARZBERLIN, Germany, Apr 8 – Christian Pulisic’s goal kick-started Borussia Dortmund in a 3-0 victory over Stuttgart on Sunday, ahead of next week’s mouth-watering derby at Schalke.Dortmund’s home win leaves them just one point behind arch-rivals Schalke, who are second in the Bundesliga table despite Saturday’s shock 3-2 defeat at Hamburg, ahead of next Sunday’s Ruhr derby in Gelsenkirchen.last_img read more

He would always give ‘three kisses’ to congregation

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREThe top 10 theme park moments of 2019 Meier Schimmel was born Jan. 2, 1916, in Frankfurt, Germany, the eighth child of Rabbi Jehuda Eliyahu and Civia Schimmel. He was ordained in 1934 at Hoffman Yeshiva in Frankfurt. He left Germany four years later and was a rabbi in London before immigrating to the United States. He enlisted in the U.S. Army and served as a chaplain. “I’ll remember his warmth, his absolute spirit and his absolute belief in God. He had an openness to other people, and he would help anyone. He lived life to the fullest,” said Harold Schrage, chairman of the board at Congregation Beth Meier. “He was so devoted to his faith and to the synagogue. “He was always my rabbi, but he went from being my rabbi to being my friend. He will be missed.” Schimmel is survived by two daughters, Debby Bitticks and Selma Schimmel; four granddaughters; and eight great-grandchildren. STUDIO CITY – After every Friday night Shabbat service, Rabbi Meier Schimmel would recite the “Brotherhood Prayer,” which he wrote, then offer his congregation three kisses in farewell. “He would give you three kisses – for the past, the present and the future,” Rabbi Aaron Benson said of Schimmel, who founded Congregation Beth Meier in 1957. “He said, you learn from the past, you should be present in the moment and hopeful for the future.” Schimmel died Friday at home of natural causes. He was 89. “He had a deep devotion to God that guided his life to help other people. He had a great sense of optimism,” said Benson, who succeeded Schimmel in 2003 at Congregation Beth Meier. “His philosophy was to experience life with gratitude and thankfulness to God and that life, the soul, is eternal.” A funeral was held Sunday at Mount Sinai Memorial Park-Hollywood Hills. Memorial donations can be sent to Congregation Beth Meier, 11725 Moorpark St., Studio City, CA 91607.

History Channel Documentary on Human Ancestry: History or Fiction?

first_imgThe History Channel aired a program called “Ape to Man” Monday evening August 7, alleging that modern science had finally pieced together the solution to the puzzle of human evolution.  Although it included debunking episodes of Piltdown (11/18/2003) and Java Man (02/27/2003), the flavor of the show was that the picture of human origins has become clear because we now “know” (02/15/2002) that tool use and not brain size (12/30/2004, 11/05/2002, 07/04/2002) is the key to understanding what makes us human, and we “know” (11/05/2003, 10/20/2003, 03/07/2002, 02/15/2002) that humans emerged from Africa and not Europe (as the proud Europeans had wanted to believe, making them gullible for the Piltdown hoax).  An animation, often repeated, showed a long string of transitional forms over millions of years in a lineup that the animation camera swept over in rapid succession, giving the impression of linear and slow gradual change over hundred thousands of generations.  Another episode portrayed clumsy, imbecilic Neanderthalers (02/25/2005) sneaking up to a wildfire to learn the secret of the mysterious flames.    Ape to Man was rebroadcast on Thursday evening Aug. 11.  The History Channel advertising poster mocked the Michelangelo fresco The Creation of Man by showing the hand of God pointing to a hairy half-ape arm.  Below it, a timeline purports to show 5 million years of human evolution.  Brad Harrub at Apologetics Press, co-author of The Truth About Human Origins, was quick to post a rebuttal listing the inaccuracies and falsehoods in the show.Brief glimpses at this program by your faithful editor led to the perception that the writers of Ape to Man were either liars (11/19/2004), clueless (12/21/2004, 05/24/2004, 03/25/2004) or had not done their required reading assignment on Creation-Evolution Headlines (12/30/2004, 09/23/2004, 07/23/2004, 06/11/2003, 03/28/2003).  The animated ape-to-man lineup, for instance, is contrary to what even the evolutionists believe (02/16/2005).  They admit that the human family tree was not a Victorian picture of orthogenesis, leading in a single line from ape to man, but was a complex, branching bush of mosaics of features that are difficult to classify.  Understanding this background, Ape to Man appears as unvarnished bluffing, tarnishing the credibility of the History Channel (usually one of the few watchable cable networks).  Harrub will tell you everything else you need to know about this travesty of casuistry, this mockumentary that does little more than deceive the public while providing job security for fully-human but depraved actors (03/19/2003) who like to wear makeup and hair (06/10/2003) instead of clothes.  Don’t show it to impressionable adults.  They might not be as bright as Brother Neanderthal (see 10/01/2004, 05/19/2005, 03/27/2003).    This seems to be Evolution Promotion Week on the cable channels.  The Science Channel is preaching molecules to man evolution in back-to-back specials, complete with the usual weird avant-garde music and dreary British narration in deep baritone, 500 million years ago, as the Uth coooled, bluff bluff, the first life emerged, bluffity bluff bluff, eyes evolved, blah blah, dinosaurs sprouted wings and took to the skies, and so on, and so forth, zzzzzzzzz.  What is this, a campaign to soften the opposition to evolutionary mythology?  If so, it’s not working.  Actually, it is standard daily repertoire on all the “non-fiction” channels.  It hasn’t worked since before TV was invented, or else the polls wouldn’t be showing the majority believing in creation.  Viewers seem to understand that movie technique can’t substitute for evidence, common-sense and reasonable interpretation of the observable facts.  They seem to sense when storytelling is being passed as truth.  Any sufficiently financed doxology to evolutionary biology is indistinguishable from tragic fiction.  Unless they are already Charlie Church fundamentalists, most people watch it for entertainment, or as a cure for insomnia.(Visited 13 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more
