Children between ages of 5 and 12 years painted the walls outside the hospital depicting the ardent need to protect the environment. The paintings ranged from depicting scenes of ‘saving trees’ to ‘save water’ and ‘control pollution’.Rendering his support towards this cause, Joy Chakraborty, COO, PD Hinduja Hospital & MRC said, “Environment plays a significant role in the health of the public. The declining condition of the natural environment is beginning to affect the health of populations in many parts of the world.

Horse Sport Enews Daniel Coyle (IRL) rode to a thrilling victory in the $145,000 Longines FEI Jumping World Cup™ Vancouver.Coyle revealed a rising star in the 9-year-old Farrel, who produced two electrifying clear rounds in the first of 14 legs in the 2019/2020 North American League season. Kelli Cruciotti (USA) finished second as the only other double-clear performer on the day, while Harrie Smolders (NED) was third aboard Hocus Pocus de Muze.“I think, give him another year’s time, and he will be a real, real top horse—not that he isn’t right now, but he’s still a little green. This was a real track today, and he proved himself to be a horse for the future.” ~ Daniel Coyle (IRL)Just five combinations were able to clear Peter Holmes (CAN)’s first round course without fault, and they all came from the class’s final eight riders. Richard Spooner (USA) was the first to crack the code, and Coyle, Smolders, Beezie Madden (USA), and Cruciotti followed.In the jump-off, Coyle was the first to produce a second clear, and no one could catch him. He finished the shortened course in 37.32 seconds. Cruciotti, riding her mount from the 2019 Longines FEI Jumping World Cup™ Final in Gothenburg (SWE), finished in 42.26 seconds, while Smolders finished with a 4-fault score in 37.41 seconds.“In the jump off, usually he jumps better, which is strange, but when you start galloping, he starts to look a little quicker and jump a little higher,” Coyle said. “I know that from the last few years that I’ve had him. That third jump did come down a lot, and I really rode him at it, and he jumped it probably as good as he could that second time. When you know them a little more, it’s a lot easier, especially when they’re younger jumping this level.”The victory moved Coyle to the top of the east coast sub league standings of the North American League with 20 points, while Cruciotti took over an early lead in the west coast standings with 17 points.The North American League continues in New York on 15 September 2019.

Councillor calls for Northern Ireland to get Ireland’s two extra MEPs after Brexit

first_imgDonegal County Council has agreed, after a vote, to call on the government to give the two extra MEP seats allocated for Ireland post-Brexit to the people of Northern Ireland.Ireland is set to be allocated two more EU Parliament seats when the UK leaves the union and their 73 MEP positions.Sinn Fein councillor Gerry McMonagle was met with some debate in the Lifford council chamber today after suggesting that Donegal County Council backs a Sinn Fein submission to hand the two extra seats to Northern Ireland. Northern Ireland currently has three MEP seats. Cllr McMonagle has asked for the Irish Government to make changes to allow citizens in the north to keep their representation in Europe and allow candidates in the north to stand for election and vote for candidates.Cllr McMonagle pointed out that the majority of Northern Ireland voted against Brexit and are set to lose their EU rights and inclusion in schemes when the UK pulls out of the EU.“The allocation of the two new seats to the North would ensure that citizens from Derry to Kerry would have a voice in Europe,” he said.Cllr McMonagle added that ensuring representation of the North in EU Parliament is a key part of continuing the peace process. The motion was opposed by Cllr Nicholas Crossan, who was seconded by Cllr Ian McGarvey.Cllr Crossan said Ireland is underrepresented in the EU and argued that the two seats should not be handed to the north.“I think Brexit is the biggest farce since Y2K,” Cllr Crossan said, adding: “I don’t believe that there is going to be a border, it’s outrageous to even think that.”Cllr McMonagle said he was frightened by the fact that some councillors do not believe that there will be a hard border and customs checks in the future.He added: “There is a general acceptance that the North is a special case. What I’m saying is that they are Irish citizens, the option is that we give them political representation through the EU.” Donegal Councillors voted 18-5 in favour of Cllr McMonagle’s motion. Cllrs Niamh Kennedy and Martin Harley abstained from voting.As the motion was passed, the executive agreed to write to Minister for Housing, Planning and Local Government to call on the Irish Government to facilitate the change in legislation that would allocate the two new MEP seats to the north.Councillor calls for Northern Ireland to get Ireland’s two extra MEPs after Brexit was last modified: September 24th, 2018 by Rachel McLaughlinShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

(Derek Ruttan/The London Free Press) Pinterest Blitzing through Southwestern Ontario Tuesday, Maxime Bernier couldn’t shake the recent protests that have dogged his breakaway conservative party and its vow to slash immigration.The People’s Party of Canada (PPC) leader was met by a small group of placard-waving protesters in front of the Sarnia public library, where he addressed about 100 supporters during a three-riding tour that also took him to Chatham, Wallaceburg and Strathroy.“Their anti-immigration policies are really scary, I think,” protester Madeline Vrolyk said. “We need to show that we’re a loving community and that kind of fear-mongering rhetoric just isn’t OK.”Bernier, who has called for immigration to Canada to be chopped roughly in half, to about 150,000 people a year, mostly to fill economic needs, said everyone should be treated equally as Canadians.He said he met with a Toronto Muslim organization and was asked what he’d do for that community.“Nothing,” he replied. “I will do nothing for the Jewish community. I will do nothing for the Christian community. I will do everything for you as a Canadian. To me, you’re a Canadian first.” People’s Party of Canada leader Maxime Bernie speaks to about 50 people at the Lion’s Club in Strathroy on Tuesday Oct. 1, 2019. (Derek Ruttan/The London Free Press) Tumblr 1/6 At a breakfast event in Chatham earlier, and at a day-ending stop in Strathroy, Bernier also defended his controlled immigration stance, a persistent theme during his tour of the region.“We are not for mass immigration, we are not low immigration,” Bernier told about 50 people who gathered at the Strathroy Lions Club. “We just want fewer immigrants.”He also vowed, if elected, to impose stricter vetting of would-be immigrants that would include interviews to ensure they “share our values.”Asked by someone what he’d do do about Canadians who went to the Middle East to fight for ISIS, Bernier was blunt. “We don’t want them here,” he said to applause.Some PPC supporters have words with protesters in Sarnia over the concerns about the party’s stance on immigration. #ckont pic.twitter.com/KeeL5WOOWb— Ellwood Shreve (@DailyNewsES) October 1, 2019 Bernier’s swing through three rural Tory strongholds included two ridings — Chatham-Kent––Leamington and Lambton––Kent––Middlesex — where 13-year Tory MPs have retired, creating rare open races and a chance for Bernier to pick off disaffected Conservative voters.Bernier, who created the PPC after losing the Tory leadership race to Andrew Scheer, said he’s confident the party’s support will surge as more voters hear its platform.He acknowledged getting his party’s message out is its biggest challenge, with less than three weeks to go to the Oct. 21 election. He said the fledgling party will air a nationwide TV ad and he expects to reach new supporters through the nationally televised leaders’ debates Oct. 7 and 10.Bernier also hit on other key planks for his free-market, libertarian party, including his vows to scrap Canada’s supply management systems for dairy, eggs and poultry and the federal carbon tax.The PPC has been dogged by controversy recently, including over a violent clash between protesters and supporters outside a weekend Hamilton event.For the Conservatives, who held seven of the 10 seats in the London region in the last Parliament, the PPC is their first serious challenge on the political right since vote-splitting with Preston Manning’s Reform Party in the 1990s allowing Liberals to walk up the middle and win rural seats in the area.If Bernier bleeds votes from the Tories, analysts say the fallout could be felt most in ridings the Tories won by only narrow margins last time, the closest of which in the London region was Chatham-Kent–Leamington.With files by Jonathan Juha, London Free PressMadeline Vrolyk, co-founder of the Sarnia Intersectional Feminist Network, is among the small group protesting in front of the Sarnia Public Library where PPC leader Max Bernier is scheduled to speak to supporters. #ckont pic.twitter.com/vYGWwM2m2s— Ellwood Shreve (@DailyNewsES) October 1, 2019last_img read more

Bafana exit World Cup on a high

first_img23 June 2010Bafana Bafana bowed out of the 2010 Fifa World Cup with heads held high in Bloemfontein on Tuesday, playing with style and belief to score South Africa’s first ever win over France. The 2-1 victory left them placed third in Group A, level with Mexico on four points, losing out only on goal difference.Bloemfontein is renowned for its passionate football fans, and a crowd of 39 415 at the small Free State Stadium made the crowd appear much bigger than it was. The place was rocking, and the South African supporters were rewarded with an equally passionate performance by Bafana Bafana.Aaron Mokoena and company showed huge appetite for the contest, which contrasted markedly with a deflated looking French squad. For most of the game, France, World Cup finalists only four years ago, were laboured and poor.French problemsThere had been huge problems in the French camp in the lead-up to the match, with the squad refusing to train on Sunday after striker Nicolas Anelka had been sent home on Saturday. This followed a bitter tirade he had launched at coach Raymond Domenech at half-time of France’s 2-0 loss to Mexico.Further evidence of the discord in the French camp was evident in the benching of captain Patrice Evra for Tuesday’s clash, with Alou Diarra taking over as captain.In the tunnel before the teams took the field, the difference was clear: France looked tense, talking in muted tones, while there was a determined look in the eyes of the South Africans, a oneness that was lacking in the French team.South African changesSouth Africa showed a number of changes, through suspensions and the need to attack and find another gear going forward. There were starts for Moeneeb Josephs, Anele Ngongca, MacBeth Sibaya, Thanduyise Khuboni, and Bernard Parker.France were the first to make any sort of waves once the contest was under way. Andre-Pierre Gignac managed an early shot on goal, but it was directly at Josephs in the South African goal and he had no problems dealing with it.In the 10th minute Djibril Cisse steered a glancing header goalwards, but once again it went straight into the welcoming arms of the goalkeeper.South Africa’s first effort on goal came in the 17th minute when MacBeth Sibaya took a shot from distance, but it flew high and wide.Bafana Bafana had struggled to make much impact on the French defence, finding it hard to penetrate at all in the final third of the field, but that was soon to change.Goal!On 20 minutes the home team won its first corner of the game. Siphiwe Tshabalala swung it in. goalkeeper Hugo Lloris started to come for it, but then back-pedalled. The ball flew over his head to the back post and central defender Bongani Khumalo, showing plenty of desire, rose up and headed it down into the ground.The ball bounced up and into the net and the crowd exploded with joy. Khumalo took off towards the crowd, blowing kisses, and for a moment Bafana Bafana supporters began to dream that the big win they needed to reach the next round might be on.Cisse responded with a shot a few minutes later, but it was a harmless effort that passed wide of Joseph’s left hand post.South African striker Katlego Mphela then made a mazy run from halfway to deep inside the French half. He fired from the top of the box and Lloris needed to pull off a good save, diving to his right, to deny Mphela.Red cardA minute later the game took a decisive turn in favour of South Africa. MacBeth Sibaya and Youann Gourcuff rose to contest a header in South African territory. Gourcuff caught Sibaya with an elbow in the face and the midfielder went down. It didn’t look like there was too much in it, a yellow card maybe, but.The referee, to the surprise of most, produced a red card and the French were down to 10 men! Matters were going from bad to worse for Les Blues.For a while after the sending off, the game struggled to find some rhythm, but Bafana Bafana slowly started to make use of their one-man advantage.Steven Pienaar earned a free kick on the right, outside of the box, and Siphiwe Tshabalala fired a shot not far over the crossbar.Two goals upA minute later, in the 34th minute, Bafana Bafana went two goals up. Tsepo Masilela initiated an attack down the left and laid the ball off for Tshabalala, who had an overlap.He centered and the ball ricocheted off a defender back to Masilela, who had continued his run. He crossed the ball on the ground and square to Mphela, who bundled it across the line from only two metres out.South Africa were two goals up and the French well out of the game. Once again, the South African fans began to dream.maybe an improbable place in round of 16 was on the cards.In the back of the netAlmost immediately Bafana Bafana had the ball in the back of the net again, but Bernard Parker, who had struck a sweet shot was rightly ruled offsides.France’s best moment of the half came with half-time approaching when Josephs fended off a dangerous looking free kick that William Gallas just failed to get a touch on.Two minutes from the break, Mphela once again tested Lloris with another long range effort that passed across the goalie. He was forced to deflect it behind for a corner.Good value for their leadThe half ended with South Africa 2-0 up and good value for their lead. The crowd was happy and with Uruguay 1-0 up against Mexico, the possibility of progressing looked reasonable, if unlikely, as the home team had France on the rack.French coach Raymond Domenech made a change at the start of the second half, bringing on Florent Malouda, which added some sting to France’s attacking efforts.South Africa, though, were the first to ask a question when Parker fired a left-footed shot on goal. Lloris dealt with it comfortably, however.Beautiful moveThen followed a beautiful move by Bafana Bafana. Pienaar passed from the middle of the park to Tshabalala, who found himself on the right. He picked out Mphela, steaming up on the left, with a fantastic ball between the two central defenders.The striker was in the clear, with only Lloris to beat. The goalie raced out and made himself as big as possible. Mphela shot to the left of Lloris and the ball grazed the outside of the goalie’s left hand post. It was a glorious opportunity spurned.On the sidelines, Bafana Bafana’s reserves, who were busy warming up, held their hands to their heads in unison.Ngongca was then replaced by Siboniso Gaxa after picking up an injury and Thierry Henry came on for Djibril Cisse. With his 17th World Cup finals appearance, Henry equalled the French record.Just before the hour-mark, Mphela tested Lloris with another excellently struck shot from distance, forcing the net-minder to concede another corner.Weak shotFranck Ribery made a good run into the South African box but, surrounded by three defenders, produced a disappointingly weak shot that passed high over the crossbar.Mphela then had another good chance to extend Bafana’s lead. He found space on the right, rounded the defence and closed in on the goalkeeper in the box. Lloris blocked the shot with his legs and the ball deflected back into the striker and out for a goal kick.Siyabonga Nomvethe, the scorer of the goal in South Africa’s only previous World Cup finals win – 1-0 over Slovenia in 2002 – was brought on for Parker after 68 minutes.French goalOn 70 minutes, France, showing more fight and rhythm, pulled one goal back. Bacary Sagna picked out Ribery on the right with a lovely pass. Ribery could have shot but, astutely, he drew Josephs before centering the ball. Malouda ran onto it and scored from an easy tap-in.The goal effectively killed off South Africa’s dream of an improbable place in the next round.Pienaar came ever so close to providing Khumalo with his second goal in response, his free kick passing only centimetres from the defender’s head in front of the French goal.Three minutes of additional time was shown to be played and it provided some stirring action. Teko Modise, on for Thanduyise Khuboni, fired off a strong shot into the side netting from the left and then followed a great chance for Bafana Bafana.Great chanceTshabalala was picked out in the goal box after Nomvethe had left a cross from the right. He had plenty of time and space to shoot, but Lloris reacted quickly to try to close him down. Tshabalala fired and the ball almost stopped, spinning on the spot. The South African midfielder raced to pick up the rebound, but Gallas was on hand to clear.Not long afterwards the final whistle sounded and South African supporters were left with a strange mixture of pride and disappointment. It had been a gallant effort by the national football team, but it had not been enough to clinch a place in the round of 16.With Uruguay beating Mexico 1-0 in the day’s other Group A contest, South Africa finished level on points with the Mexicans, but lost out on goal difference. Mexico had scored three goals and conceded two in their three games, while Bafana finished with three scored and five given up.Uruguay topped the standings with seven points, while France finished bottom with only one point and the single goal they scored against Bafana.Would you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?
