Juneau Campus Opposes Consolidating UA Administration

first_imgFacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享The University of Alaska’s board of regents is considering whether to consolidate the school’s education programs into one college based in Fairbanks, a move that has drawn criticism from the university’s Juneau campus. The advisory council for University of Alaska Southeast in Juneau passed a resolution Monday expressing “overwhelming disagreement” with Johnsen’s plan. Juneau Mayor Ken Koelsch has also opposed the change, arguing that centralizing education programs in Fairbanks could potentially hurt the “long-term viability” of the University of Alaska Southeast. The Juneau Empire reports (http://bit.ly/2fghis2 ) the board is expected to decide sometime this week on what university President Jim Johnsen has called a cost-saving measure. Under the single systemwide college of education, there would only be one dean, instead of the three that currently operate within the university system.last_img read more

Northern U23 players to undergo trials

first_imgSoccer The Papua New Guinea U23 final squad for the OFC Olympic qualifier in Fiji will be named after the selection trials for the Northern, Highlands and NGI conferences at the PNG Football Association Academy in Lae, Morobe province. Head coach Percy Mataio said the Southern Conference trials were done last week while the Northern, Highlands and NGI Conference will be done today. He said all players who have been listed on the trial list must be present for the trials at PNGFA Academy. The players who made the final cut will be brought into a three-week training camp in Port Moresby before they leave for the tournament in Fiji next month. Mataio has sounded a stern warning to all those potential players that selection into the national team will be based on players who are disciplined, hardworking and have the right attitude to represent the country. “We are not interested in individual talent, rather our focus will be on team players who can play well together as a team,” Mataio said. “This will allow the players to understand the coach’s philosophy and game model so that they can all work together to improve the overall team performance.” The trial squad is Jordan Tobem (Morobe United), Jonathan Pole (Aporro Mai), Peter Dabinyaba Jr (Toti City), Wesley Wawa (West Tribe), Mathew Kalulu (Morobe United), Stahl Gubag (Tusbab Stallions), Ricky Wadunah (Tusbab Stallions), Emmanuel Simongi (Besta PNG United), Abraham Allen (Besta PNG United), Yagi Yasasa (Besta PNG United), Barthy Kerobin (Laiwaden), Sane Henry (Morobe United), Karesa Morris (Aporro Mai), Bruce Tiampo (Besta PNG United) and Terence Pama (Chebu AROB).last_img read more

Henry admits Rangers were ‘unprofessional’

first_imgKarl Henry has admitted that QPR were “unprofessional” in their astonishing 3-2 defeat at home to Liverpool.Widely criticised prior to Sunday’s game, Rangers were much more competitive and were desperately unlucky to lose.Manager Harry Redknapp praised them after the match but was less impressed by basic errors that led to a couple of Liverpool’s goals.AdChoices广告 See also:Redknapp defiant after gut-wrenching lossQPR’s worry increase as duo are injuredUnlucky QPR beaten after incredible finaleRangers confident Onuoha will face VillaQPR v Liverpool player ratingsTaarabt lambasted by furious QPR boss “That was the best I’ve seen us play since I’ve been at the club.”Harry Redknapp after Sunday’s lossHis team switched off in the build-up to the first, protesting against the award of a free-kick as it was taken quickly, while a stray free-kick taken by Leroy Fer at the other end led to the visitors’ winner in the final seconds.“Harry was not happy. We’ve thrown it away and he’s not happy,” said R’s midfielder Henry.“It’s naïve from us – unprofessional. It can’t happen. It wouldn’t happen in an Under-11s game.“The goals we conceded were shocking goals to concede when we put so much in.“I think they were shaky – they didn’t like us pressing them high. We were getting results from that and to throw it away the way we did, everyone’s disappointed.“For the first goal, it’s a free-kick and we’re asleep – ridiculous. Then there’s them breaking on us, them running out of their box quicker than we do.“They have four or five bodies from their box in our box and we’re not with them. That should not be possible.“So, that’s unprofessional from our point of view. You get to 2-2 late on in a game and you don’t concede.Eduardo Vargas looked to have secured a deserved point for Rangers“We dropped the free-kick short rather than putting it in the stand or making sure it’s long in the corner or somewhere else, and it’s unprofessional.”With Rangers bottom of the table, Redknapp’s position had been under scrutiny before the game.But the vastly improved performance suggested a corner may have been turned despite the result.Henry added: “We’re fighting for the manager, we’re fighting for ourselves and we’re fighting for the club.“It’s a good job we have here and it’s well documented that footballers get paid well. We know the situation we’re in and we’re giving it everything, and any suggestion that we’re not, we’re not happy about.“We know we were almost there. The performance was good and we can’t fault anyone’s effort I don’t think – we left everything our there. I don’t think I could run another yard.“We all put in everything we had and if perform like that and make sure it’s over 90 minutes, not 82 or whatever it was, we’ll get results.”center_img Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

King sees opportunity for West Indies call up from CPL

first_imgBrandon King will be aiming to break into the West Indies team with a positive outing when he turns up for the Guyana Amazon Warriors in this year’s Caribbean Premier League (CPL). Following the Warriors’ first day of rigorous training, King was asked about the opportunity presented by being a part of the tournament dubbed ‘the biggest party in sport,’ and said that he was confident it can lead to a West Indies call up or more.“Definitely!, this is the premier T20 competition in the Caribbean and players are selected based on their performances in this, so it is definitely a stepping stone for me and it is televised worldwide, so it is a big stage to showcase your skills,” King stated.Brandon KingThe 24-year-old right handed batsman was snapped up by the Warriors in the ninth round of the Draft. King confessed that he was excited to come to a new franchise but felt that it would be in his best interest and the team’s if he adapts quickly. “For me it is always exciting to be part of a new set up and team, “he said.“I think one of the skills you must have being a cricketer is being able to adapt to different situations and it is always good to experience new things and challenge yourself,” he added.The Jamaican said that he is optimistic about working with the Warriors, noting their well-documented success although they have not yet won the title, a feat which he desires to accomplish. “This franchise has been doing well over the years. They’ve been to four finals so the only way to improve that is to get over the final line and hopefully I can be a part of that,” King related. He explained that the Warriors have experienced persons in the set-up and that he will look to learn as much as he can from them.“It is definitely a plus for me! You get to rub shoulders with some of the international guys who have been playing for many years so, me, personally, I would be looking to have as much conversations with them, learn as much as I can from them and put it into my game as fast as possible,” he stated.Warriors will feature former Pakistan captain, Shoaib Malik, Ben Laughlin, Chris Green, Veerasammy Permaul, Shimron Hetmyer, Keemo Paul, Sherfane Rutherford, Nicholas Pooran, Clinton Pestano, Romario Shepherd, Chandrapaul Hemraj, Keagan Simmons, Odean Smith and Anthony Bramble while behind the scenes, Johan Botha is the Head Coach along with Assistant Coach, Rayon Griffith. The former St. Kitts and Nevis Patriot made his debut against the Warriors in 2017 and has featured in 18 matches and has a strike rate of 119 with a best of 60. The top order batsman said that he intends to improve on his previous seasons.“For me it is just about improving every year. I had two previous years with St. Kitts franchise and coming here I’m just looking to improve on my performances and be a big part of the success of the team.”While being a Jamaican and a part of Patriots prior, King suggests that he does not have any point to prove to them but will be using it as motivation to do well. When asked if he was pressured by those factors, King responded, “Not necessarily, it is something that I can use as motivation to give yourself that kind of energy. Its franchise cricket, that’s the nature of it and you tend to move around so I am going to use it as motivation.”Warriors will begin their hunt for their maiden title on Thursday when they take on St. Lucia Stars at Providence from 18.00hrs before playing back to back matches against St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots and Barbados Tridents over the weekend.last_img read more

Golf tournament to help fund police training initiative

FOLLOW US Written By First Published: 30th June, 2020 22:36 IST COMMENTcenter_img The Travelers Championship is giving some of the money raised by last week’s golf tournament in Connecticut to help create a program to train police in how to deal with teens and young adults, especially in Black and racially diverse communities. The tournament and the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving announced Tuesday they are teaming to provide $300,000 over two years to the University of New Haven’s Center for Advanced Policing and the Tow Youth Justice Institute.Officials said the money will be used to launch the Connecticut Institute for Youth and Police Relations in Greater Hartford in the fall. Officials said the institute will assist police officers in learning how to maintain public safety while also serving the best interests of youth. The program is expected to begin in the fall and will focus on police officers who have regular contact with people up to the age of 24.“As seen throughout our nation, law enforcement must continue the important work of building trust and legitimacy with the communities we serve,” said Windsor Police Chief Donald Melanson, president of the Capitol Region Chiefs of Police Association. “Understanding the impact of trauma on youth and families and interacting with youth in conversation will go a long way toward bettering police – youth relations.”The Travelers Championship last year gave more than $2 million to about 150 charities in Connecticut. It has not said how much money was raised at this year’s PGA Tour event, where no tickets were sold because of the coronavirus pandemic. Tournament Director Nathan Grube said many corporate sponsors decided to give their usual donations even without getting the ticket packages, receptions or hospitality tents in return.

Hearts begin search for new boss

first_imgAccra Hearts of Oak will begin their search for a new coach after they tip-toed to another League title on Sunday.Striker Samuel Affum hit a brace to help the Phobians clinch their 20th League title, but when the celebrations die down the club will look back on a campaign that almost ended in disaster.Hearts set the pace in the first half of the season, going 11 points clear of their rivals before Asante Kotoko caught up with them. And many observers say Hearts’ collapse was primarily due to the sacking of Kosta Papic as coach.Former club great Nii Noi Thompson stepped in as caretaker coach, but won just one game in 10.Now former Asante Kotoko coach Bashir Hayford, now at Kessben FC, and Steve Pollack, who took King Faisal to another top-four finish, are being touted as potential replacements.Source: Kickoff.comlast_img read more
