By David Smith Jr.OBERLIN, Kan. (Aug. 19) – Toby Chapman proved patience is a virtue as he passed race-long leader Jed Werner on the final circuit to claim the thrilling United Rebel Sprint Series feature on Saturday in front of a packed house at Oberlin Speedway on night one of the Bob Salem Memorial.It looked to be Werner’s night but Chapman had other ideas as the Nebraska veteran passed Tracey Hill for the runner-up position with three laps remaining and set his sights on the leader.On the last lap Chapman put a slide job on Werner in turn one with Werner crossing under and they went side-by-side down the backstretch. Werner drove hard into the bottom of turn three and slid up back into the lead with Chapman crossing under and nipping Werner at the line by a half car length.Eleventh starting and current series point leader Zach Blurton came through the field to finish third while Hill settled for fourth. Fourteenth starting and hard charger Nick Haygood rounded out the top five.Feature results – 1. Toby Chapman; 2. Jed Werner; 3. Zach Blurton; 4. Tracey Hill; 5. Nick Haygood; 6. Koby Walters; 7. Steven Richardson; 8. Buddy Tubbs; 9. Nate Berry; 10. John Webster; 11. Nick Nichols; 12. Kaden Taylor; 13. Scott Cochran; 14. Ty Williams; 15. Aaron Ploussard; 16. Mike Taylor; 17.

RelatedPosts Ighalo: My best moment as ‘Red Devil’ EPL: Crystal Palace stun sloppy Man U EPL: Red Devils attack Palace Manchester United gave manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer a much-needed boost with a 6-0 mauling of Tranmere on Sunday to reach the FA Cup fifth round. Despite a fast Tranmere start, United scored three goals in six minutes against the run of play through unlikely scorers Harry Maguire, Diogo Dalot and Jesse Lingard to effectively end the match as a contest. Workmanlike Tranmere held out until the last five minutes of the half, but Phil Jones (41) and Anthony Martial made it five before the break, while United fans chanted songs criticising their owners. Mason Greenwood wrapped the game up with a penalty just before the hour to put the seal on a highly clinical and effective performance marking their biggest away win this century on a poor Prenton Park pitch. Tranmere actually started much the brighter, with the lively Morgan Ferrier causing trouble with his bustling runs and drawing a booking from the uncertain Jones after just four minutes. But despite the nervy start, United took the lead through Maguire’s first goal since joining the club in the summer. The United captain unleashed a fierce, dipping 20-yard effort that skimmed off the head of Peter Clarke on its way to the top corner. Dalot then jinked into the box and struck the ball sweetly across Tranmere goalkeeper Scott Davies before Lingard curled in a fine effort from the edge of the box to put Solskjaer’s side in complete control. Jones rose above Connor Jennings to nod in from a corner for his first goal in five years, before Martial – via a slight deflection off Kieron Morris – made it five from an almost identical position to Lingard’s goal. After the break Greenwood extended the lead even further from the penalty spot, coolly sending Davies the wrong way after Tahith Chong was chopped down recklessly by the Tranmere goalkeeper. Greenwood’s goal marked the first time United had scored six goals in a game since Sir Alex Ferguson was in charge of the 8-2 thrashing of Arsenal in 2011, and only the second time in their history they had six different scorers. Six substitutions disrupted the match’s rhythm and Manchester United’s tempo, but the visitors kept piling on pressure, with Lingard then Tahith Chong striking the woodwork before the game petered out as Tranmere shut up shop. Whether executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward and the Glazers – not present at the game – heed the supporters’ urging and make any signings before the deadline on January 31 remains to be seen.Tags: Harry MaguireJesse LingardManchester UnitedOle Gunnar SolskjaerTranmere Rovers

According to the statement, the Minister thanked Dangote for responding to the call to restore the edifice.After months of “discussions, planning and processing, that promise has come to fulfillment today with the kick-off of the project… the football pitch will be getting the long overdue face- lift it deserves.”Dare commended Alhaji Dangote and his group for believing in the vision of the Ministry by agreeing to partner with it to restore the fading glory of the edifice.The Minister further asserted: “This landmark event reinforces my faith in the public-private sector partnership in line with Government’s efforts at delivering on our mandate. Government alone cannot fund sports and maintain facilities we need more private corporations to take a cue from what Alhaji Aliko Dangote and Chief Adebutu Kessington have done in supporting our drive to renovate and maintain our facilities for use by our athletes and to play host to international events.”While urging Messrs. Aron Nigeria Limited, the Contractor, to move with the speed of light, Dare said government had imbibed a proper maintenance culture to guarantee that the huge sum spent on these projects are not wasted.

Last week’s jobless numbers are lower than the previous week around the country, they are also much lower in Florida.More than three-million more Americans are out of work according to the Labor Department.According to today’s report, more than 3.1 million workers filed first-time claims for unemployment benefits last week. That’s half-a-million fewer than the previous week’s total. More than 33-million U.S. workers have lost their jobs over the past seven weeks. The biggest increases in claims were in Washington, Georgia, New York, Oregon, and Alabama. The sharpest decreases were in California, Florida, Connecticut, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania.Florida was most responsible for the big dip in unadjusted numbers, reporting about 260,000 fewer claims over the past week. Maryland reported a jump of 27,337.At the current pace, the week claims numbers should fall below 1 million by mid-June, according to Ian Shepherdson, chief economist at Pantheon Macroeconomics. “We’re very hopeful that June will see the beginnings of a rebound as states begin to reopen,” Shepherdson said.The layoffs associated with social distancing practices have wiped out all of the job gains the economy has seen since the recovery from the Great Recession.
AUSTIN, Texas (Reuters) – Mercedes won the Formula One constructors’ title for the fourth year in a row on Sunday but Lewis Hamilton was made to wait despite cruising to a U.S. Grand Prix victory at one of his favourite circuits.Hamilton, presented with the winner’s trophy by former U.S. president Bill Clinton, now looks sure to finish off the job and become Britain’s first four times world champion in Mexico next weekend.The Mercedes driver’s fifth victory in six years at Austin’s Circuit of the Americas extended his lead over Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel, who finished second, to 66 points.There are a maximum of 75 points still to be won from the three races remaining.“I love this track, I think this track is now my favourite to be honest,” said Hamilton, interviewed by Usain Bolt on the podium and joining the Olympic sprint champion’s signature victory pose.“A big congratulations to the team. They work so hard back at the factory and here.”The victory was the 62nd of Hamilton’s career and his ninth of the season.Ferrari’s Kimi Raikkonen took third, despite finishing fourth at the flag, after Red Bull’s Max Verstappen — who had passed the Finn with a great overtaking move — was hit with a five second post-race penalty that dropped him to fourth.“It is an appalling decision. They have robbed all of the fans here,” raged Red Bull principal Christian Horner as Verstappen left the pre-podium room.“It was a great grand prix and they have screwed it up.”Hamilton had started on pole position, waved away for the formation lap by Bolt after an extended pre-race presentation reflecting the sport’s new U.S. ownership and desire to jazz things up.Celebrity boxing title fight announcer Michael Buffer gave his long and resonant call of ‘Let’s get ready to rumble’, after announcing the drivers to the crowd one by one, and the battle was on.“It was a great grand prix and they have screwed it up.”Hamilton had started on pole position, waved away for the formation lap by Bolt after an extended pre-race presentation reflecting the sport’s new U.S. ownership and desire to jazz things up.Celebrity boxing title fight announcer Michael Buffer gave his long and resonant call of ‘Let’s get ready to rumble’, after announcing the drivers to the crowd one by one, and the battle was on.But it was Vettel who struck the first blow from second place on the grid, beating Hamilton into the first corner as the Briton moved across and squeezed him as tight as he could without making contact.Six laps later and Hamilton was back in front and this time he stayed there.“At the start it was looking good, we got past Lewis, but we had to realise we couldn’t go at his pace,” said Vettel.“We were then in no-man’s land and were not quite sure. We decided to pit again, with a fresh set of tyres, and it was a bit more exciting but overall it was not the result we needed.”The German dropped down to fourth after his second stop but passed Mercedes’ Valtteri Bottas with five laps to go and team mate Raikkonen obligingly let him pass.Bottas finished fifth with French driver Esteban Ocon sixth for Force India and Carlos Sainz, on his Renault debut after leaving Toro Rosso, seventh.Mexican Sergio Perez was eighth for Force India with Brazilian Felipe Massa ninth in a Williams and Russian Daniil Kvyat taking a point for Toro Rosso.

In a precedence-setting move, CEO/Commissioner of the Jamaica Customs Agency (JCA), Mrs. Velma Ricketts Walker, has been elected by the membership of the World Customs Organization (WCO) to serve as Chairperson of the WCO’s Capacity Building Committee (CBC). She has the distinction of being the first female chairperson of the CBC, and the first person from Jamaica and the Caribbean to hold the post. Mrs. Ricketts Walker vied for the post at the 9th Session of the WCO Capacity Building Committee (CBC), which was held in Brussels from 26 to 28 February 2018, under the theme “Smart Customs: The Gateway to High Performance and Sustainability.” Will serve 1-year termMrs. Ricketts Walker will serve for a period of one (1) year and will be eligible for re-election. Canada will serve as Vice-Chair for the Committee, with Norway being the outgoing Chair. Previous chairpersons were from Canada, Brazil and Norway. The CBC enjoys wide membership support and comes in second, with over 200 participants, only to the WCO’s Annual General Council Meeting.Jamaica has been a member of the WCO since 1963. The WCO has 182 members from across six (6) regions; namely the Americas and the Caribbean, Europe, Asia and the Pacific, Eastern and Southern Africa, Western and Central Africa and the Middle East and Northern Africa. The CBC has been gaining increasing support in recent times, as Customs administrations focus on modernization and capacity building, especially in light of their obligations under the World Trade Organization (WTO) Trade Facilitation Agreement (TFA), which entered into force on February 22, 2017. CBC’s mandateThe CBC’s mandate is to initiate work and studies on capacity building to consider overall capacity building priorities, and to prepare guidelines, standards, tools and instruments to support capacity building objectives. It also provides a forum for cooperation and information exchange on development topics. These initiatives are informed by an annual needs assessment process carried out together by the WCO Secretariat and Member administrations, and supported by the Regional Offices for Capacity Building (ROCBs).Since the last session of the CBC, held in March 2017, 492 capacity building missions have been conducted across all six (6) regions of the WCO, with more than 130 Members benefitting from this support. Jamaica has been benefitting from various capacity building initiatives including the WCO Knowledge Academy, WCO Fellowship Program, various WCO Accreditation Workshops, WCO Time Release Study Workshop, WCO Strategic Planning Workshop, WCO Rules of Origin and Advance Rulings Workshop. A near future engagement of the Jamaica Customs Agency is the WCO Mercator Program, which aims to assist governments worldwide to implement trade facilitation measures, including the WTO TFA, in a uniform manner, through the use of WCO instruments and tools. Other future and current capacity building engagements the JCA will participate in include the human resource boosting Leadership and Management Development Program (LMPD), WCO e-learning platform CLiCK! (Customs Learning and Knowledge Community), the Virtual Customs Orientation Academy (VCOA) and various scholarship programs. Building capacity in integrityOther key areas of focus for the WCO’s CBC include building capacity in integrity, in order to adopt new methods and develop new tools to combat corruption and promote integrity; and gender equality and diversity. Gender equality and diversity is an area being given keen interest by WCO Members, resulting in the WCO’s participation in the “Women and Trade International Forum,” organized by the European Commission in Brussels. The Forum gathered policymakers, private stakeholders, and civil society organizations with the aim of promoting inclusive trade policies to promote women’s economic empowerment. A Virtual Working Group on Gender Equality and Diversity is to be launched by the WCO Secretariat with the objective of gathering best practices on Gender Equality and Diversity initiatives implemented by Members and promoting the exchange of information in this field. Further, a special section of the WCO website has also been devoted to this topical issue. It is expected that work will continue under the CBC on these two very important areas, to the benefit of the Members, particularly Members from Developing and Least Developed Countries (LDCs), including Jamaica.
