Rain cancels Junglists clash with Lions

first_imgArnett Gardens and Humble Lion will have to wait another day for the playing of their Red Stripe Premier League return leg semi-final match, which was postponed yesterday due to heavy rains at the Effortville Community Centre in Clarendon.The game, which started 30 minutes late, was called off by FIFA referee Valdin Legister 10 minutes after kick-off with the score locked at nil all. The ball could not roll properly on the surface, and this led to the end of play. Organisers said that they would announce a date for the replay shortly.Another issue arose before kick-off as both teams came to the venue prepared to play in red socks. League regulations do not permit opposing teams to wear socks of the same colour. However, this was solved when Arnett were given green pairs.ACT OF NATUREArnett came into the return game with a 2-1 advantage, following their victory in the first leg a week ago at the Anthony Spaulding Sports Complex in Trench Town, Kingston.Arnett Gardens head coach Jerome ‘Jerry’ Waite described the postponement as an act of nature and said that his team would go back to training to prepare once more for the Donovan Duckie-coached Humble Lion.”It’s nature, nothing! We have to just live with it. We will have to be ready for the game,” Waite told The Gleaner.last_img read more

Shaw own goal hands Barca control of Utd tie

first_imgUnited produced one of the European Cup’s finest ever comebacks from a 2-0 first-leg defeat at home to Paris Saint-Germain in the last 16.However, on the ground where manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer completed another famous fightback to win the competition as a player in 1999, United must repeat the trick at the Camp Nou in six days’ time.Much has been made of Suarez’s Champions League goal drought on the road and while the Uruguayan has still not officially netted an away goal in the competition since September 2015, he had a huge hand in Barca’s winner.Lionel Messi drifted in behind the United defence and his cross hung up to the back post was headed goalwards by Suarez, the ball flicking off Shaw on its way past David de Gea.An errant offside flag briefly threatened to spoil Suarez’s delight. However, the goal was quickly given on a VAR review and the former Liverpool striker took extra glee at having the last laugh with a fist pump in front of the Stretford End.The early goal should have settled the Spanish champions into their stride as their dominance of possession touched close to 90 percent in the opening stages.Yet, they offered United plenty of encouragement with Sergio Busquets in particular off the pace.Marcus Rashford shrugged off an ankle injury to start and provided by a distance United’s biggest threat.A free-kick from the England international flew just wide inside the first five minutes and he sent another dipping effort from range just over Marc-Andre ter Stegen’s crossbar.United defender Chris Smalling had said “bring it on” at the prospect of facing Messi on the eve of the game.– Messi roughed up –And he left the Argentine bloodied from the nose as he careered into an aerial challenge on the half-hour mark.Messi was quickly back on his feet and into the heart of the action, but it was Philippe Coutinho who came closest to extending Barca’s advantage before the break with a thunderous low shot that De Gea did brilliantly to repel with his feet.Moments later United could easily have been on level terms, but the hosts’ best chance of the half fell to the wrong man as Rashford picked out Diogo Dalot only for the Portuguese to completely miscue his header across goal.Rashford, though, also failed to make proper contact with his big chance early in the second-half when Ter Stegen could only punch a cross into his path.United enjoyed the better of the opening stages in the second half, but lacked a creative spark to open Barca up with Paul Pogba too often picking the sideways pass rather than looking to thread the eye of a needle towards Rashford and the ineffective Romelu Lukaku.Barca boss Ernesto Valverde reacted by introducing midfielders Sergi Roberto and Arturo Vidal from the bench in order to restore to control.And as United chased in vain for an equaliser, the visitors began to create chances again in the final quarter.Suarez fired into the side-netting before De Gea used his feet to good effect once more to deny Jordi Alba.Anthony Martial had one final big opportunity to send United to Catalonia next week on level terms, but a heavy touch allowed the faultless Gerard Pique to intervene and condemn the Red Devils to a fourth defeat in their last six home Champions League games.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Luis Suarez (C) celebrates after his header was diverted home by United defender Luke Shaw© AFP LLUIS GENEMANCHESTER, United Kingdom, Apr 11 – Manchester United have another monumental task on their hands in the Champions League after Luke Shaw’s own goal gave Barcelona a 1-0 quarter-final, first leg lead at Old Trafford on Wednesday.Shaw turned Luis Suarez’s header into his own net after just 12 minutes and despite being far from their best, Barca comfortably held out to edge towards a first Champions League semi-final in four years.last_img read more

Skate rink is put on ice

first_imgWith the manmade lagoon drained and mostly abandoned during winter, he suggested building a 50-by-80-foot temporary rink for ice skaters. Coils beneath the surface would have used a constant flow of electricity to keep the ice frozen. Plans called for the rink to operate daily from Nov. 20 to Jan. 5. Admission was set at $7 per hour, and skate rental rates at $3 per pair. Kearney has made a name for himself around the South Bay as founder of the popular Hermosa Shorts Film Festival. He also operates two local businesses: Pinch Hit Productions, a filmmaking company, and Disco Metro, which outfits passenger vans for theme parties. In the same vein, his nine-person creative team wanted the Redondo skating rink to have a community draw and encourage people to have fun. Kearney estimated the cost at around $250,000 – an expense he hoped to recoup by getting 100 people on the ice every hour. And although he had been exploring the skating rink for some time, it was only in August that Kearney learned a portable structure had become available. He didn’t want to pass it up, despite the tight planning schedule. “This landed in my lap as I was finishing the film festival,” Kearney said. “The cool thing about this is, everyone who has been involved is really enthusiastic. We’re well ahead of the eight ball for next year.” With the proposed opening just a few weeks off, city staff members were preparing this week to take the idea to the City Council. “We were excited about it,” said Mike Witzansky, recreation and community services director. “Anything that gives us an opportunity to explore the use of the lagoon, particularly in the off-season, I think we’re fairly receptive to. ? We’re disappointed it’s not going to happen.” kristin.agostoni@dailybreeze.com 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

The fast-approaching holiday season left little time to market the idea, Kearney said, leaving his creative team concerned about how many people would be drawn to the dormant lagoon on such short notice. And he figures the new deadline gives them more time to pursue other initiatives, such as partnerships with local schools, and a more energy-efficient cooling system. “Marketing it and promoting it and just putting together all the different aspects of it ? there’s no doubt we could have done it, but my gut feeling and everybody else’s was, let’s just take some more time with it,” Kearney said. “The upside is it’s going to be a great event (next year) for the city of Redondo Beach.” Kearney’s plan to turn King Harbor into a winter wonderland has generated a buzz. REDONDO BEACH: Seaside Lagoon won’t be a winter wonderland until November 2008. By Kristin S. Agostoni Staff Writer It looks like Seaside Lagoon is destined for another lonely winter.

Moon Dust Can Kill

first_imgFuture astronauts preparing to operate on the moon, beware.  High-speed dust is deadly, reports PhysOrg.  With no atmosphere on the moon to slow its path, dust flying from rocket engines can blast anything in its path.  “Small grit can travel enormous distances at high speeds, scouring everything in its path,” the article says – at speeds up to 2 kilometers per second.    Apollo astronauts didn’t experience this first-hand, because they were safe inside the lunar module when it took off.  But when surveying the condition of Surveyor 3 on Apollo 12, the astronauts noticed a sand-blasted appearance on the side facing the Apollo lander.    This could prove disastrous to a future moon base.  “This evidence concerns [Phil] Metzger [Kennedy Space Center] because in a future lunar outpost, high-speed fine grit could scour the reflective coating off thermal control blankets, roughen the surfaces of windows and other optics, compromise the surfaces of solar panels, and penetrate connectors or other mechanisms on digging machines or spacesuits, causing friction and even mechanical failure,” the article said.  Getting farther away from the launch pad is no help: “Dust particles accelerated by a rocket’s exhaust could theoretically travel all the way around the Moon!”Just one more reason to be thankful you live on God’s green Earth, nicest place in the solar system.  Take a deep breath of fresh air, and smile.(Visited 21 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more
