He’s not for sale! – Price warns that Nicholson is not available to any local club

first_img Price insists that Nicholson will only leave Boys’ Town for an overseas club. “We won’t lose him to any local club. Only overseas. I am the player’s coach and we have charted a way forward for him,” Price told The Gleaner yesterday. Price also disclosed that Nicholson’s agent, Kevon Cowan, is in agreement with the plan to get the player overseas. Nicholson made his debut for Boys’ Town’s senior team three years ago and has improved every season. Last year, he was voted the top junior player. He also represented Jamaica at the Under-17 and Under-20 levels. “I am not surprised by the player’s development. He has been progressing well. He has good height and good feet,” the veteran coach added. Technical director of Boys’ Town FC Andrew Price is highly confident that prolific goalscorer Shamar Nicholson will not leave the club for any local outfit. The 20-year-old Nicholson is creating waves in the Red Stripe Premier League (RSPL), scoring a competition-leading nine goals in 17 games so far. This despite the Collie Smith Drive-based team’s lowly position at the foot of the 12-team table. With the transfer window now open, there is growing fear among Boys’ Town supporters that the hitman will be tempted to move to stronger local team, but the administrator was bullish in his dismissal of that possibility. OVERSEAS STRUGGLING TO WIN Although Nicholson has been scoring consistently, Boys’ Town are struggling to win games in the nation’s top-flight competition. However, Price said that the team would improve this year. “We have some notable schoolboys coming in the team such as Chavanney Willis, who is returning, and Orlando Brown. Both players represented Manning Cup champions Jamaica College. We are awaiting international clearance for Jamiel Hardware, who is training with the club following a stint at St Louis FC in the USL,” Price informed. “We are confident that the club will climb out of relegation. We had a talk with the players and they are committed to the club. The club has been in this situation in the past, and we know what it takes to turn the tide around as there are 16 more games remaining in the preliminary stage,” the Boys’ Town boss concluded. Boys’ Town are currently on 12 points, three below Waterhouse in the relegation zone.last_img read more

Gunmen storm home of carjacked victim

first_img– Escape with cash, other valuablesAlmost three weeks after bandits pretending to be passengers had carjacked a taxi at Garden of Eden, East Bank Demerara (EBD), three gunmen stormed the car owner’s Diamond, EBD home on Wednesday evening, and escaped with a quantity of cash and valuables.According to information received, the incident occurred at about 23:30h. The owner of the hijacked car, identified only as a businessman, reported that the three perpetrators entered his home from a back door that had been left open.He alleges that he had closed his shop earlier in the evening and had gone to sleep with his wife and grandson in the house. However, he was reportedly awakened by one of the bandits, and observed that his seven-year-old grandson was being forced to divulge where the family’s cash and valuables were.The bandits also reportedly threatened the young child. Guyana Times was told that the businessman, not aware that the suspects were armed, acted hastily andThe car that was stolengrabbed a cutlass, but was quickly disarmed by the three men.The perpetrators then fled the scene with a number of mobile phone cards and an undisclosed sum of cash. Investigations are ongoing.In mid-August, the victim’s new white Premio motorcar, HC 8993, which was being driven by a 30-year-old taxi driver at the time, was stolen.It was reported that Terry Persaud of Diamond, EBD, at about 17:00h, was working taxi in Diamond Scheme when he picked up two suspects — described as a slim male and a mixed race female- at the Diamond Tarmac.The duo requested to be taken to Friendship, East Bank Demerara, to pick up the other suspect (described as a chubby male). At Friendship, the apparent couple sat in the back seat while their chubby accomplice occupied the front passenger seat.Persaud recounted that as he proceeded in a southerly direction, in the vicinity of Garden of Eden, the slim male placed a cold object behind his neck and demanded that he stop the car. He also threatened to shoot Persaud.The man, fearing for his life, immediately complied, and the chubby male grabbed Persaud’s hand and pulled off his wedding ring, before taking away his cell phone and money.The victim was then ordered to exit the car.Upon doing so, he began running in a northerly direction as the suspects fled the scene in the stolen car in a southerly direction. So far, no one has been arrested in connection with the crime.last_img read more

Science Journal Editors Face Accountability

first_imgThis quote by a journal editor comes from a news item in the Mar. 4 issue of Nature:1“Like everybody else, we are much more interested in other people’s accountability than we are in our own,” explains Richard Smith, editor of the British Medical Journal (BMJ), who helped to draft the new code.  “Editors are perhaps some of the most unaccountable people in the world.”The new code he speaks of is a draft of an ethical code of conduct for scientific publishing, which can be found on the website of the Committee on Publication Ethics.  The editor of Nature is “considering” the guidelines; other journals claim they already have independent review boards.  The article gives some examples of recent ethical violations by journal editors.  See also Nature Science Update (03/04/2004) for samples of misconduct; Jim Giles writes, “They lie, they cheat and they steal.  Judging by the cases described by a group of medical journal editors, scientists are no different from the rest of us.”1Jim Giles, “Medical editors urged to accept ethical code,” Nature 428, 5 (04 March 2004); doi:10.1038/428005a.You thought that peer review kept science journals honest, and that science was a self-correcting process in which peer review kept bias out of the journals, didn’t you?  How come after centuries of science publishing, here in 2004 they are admitting that editors are some of the most unaccountable people in the world?    Some of the proposed guidelines, if followed honestly, would put the Darwin Party out of business:Data Analysis:“The discussion section of a paper should mention any issues of bias which have been considered, and explain how they have been dealt with in the design and interpretation of the study.”Duties of Editors:“Studies that challenge previous work published in the journal should be given an especially sympathetic hearing.”How come Darwinians can speculate freely beyond the evidence, but rebuttals from ID scientists are systematically excluded? (see 05/13/2003 headline, for example).  How come pro-Darwin book reviews are published, but only negative reviews are published of intelligent design books, if at all?“Studies reporting negative results should not be excluded.”OK, let’s publish some of the many dates that conflict with the standard geological column.“All original studies should be peer reviewed before publication, taking into full account possible bias due to related or conflicting interests.”Does philosophical materialism count as bias?Media Relations:“Authors approached by the media should give as balanced an account of their work as possible, ensuring that they point out where evidence ends and speculation begins.”This one guideline alone would put the Darwinian just-so storytelling enterprise out of business.COPE says that “These guidelines are intended to be advisory rather than prescriptive, and to evolve over time.”  So who or what is going to hold the editor of Nature accountable?  Sales records?  Guidelines might evolve by intelligent design, but if ethics evolve, they are not ethics.    Speaking of bias, did you know that the journal Nature was originally formed to be a propaganda outlet for the Darwinians?  Look at what Janet Browne wrote in Charles Darwin: The Power of Place (Princeton, 2002):The Reader [a first-attempt Darwin mouthpiece] was to expire in 1867.  Not long afterwards, Norman Lockyear, one of its editors, put up the idea of founding a periodical which they would call Nature, to be owned and published by Alexander Macmillan, a journal that would provide cultivated readers with an accessible forum for reading about advances in scientific knowledge.  Lockyear brought Nature into existence in November 1869, fronted by an introduction by Huxley (“as if written by the maddest English scholar,” said Darwin indulgently).  To command the periodical market was a shrewd tactic in any contested cultural arena but one as yet little exploited in science, and while Lockyear was never a member of the X Club [a group of radical antireligious naturalists and Darwin-supporters, founded by Huxley] he displayed similar strong, progressive liberal opinions.  Far more than any other science journal of the period, Nature was conceived, born and raised to serve polemic purpose.  In the first year of its existence, there were six or seven articles urging Darwin’s scheme, two of which were written by Darwin himself.  Darwin became a lifelong subscriber, claiming he got a kind of “satisfaction” in reading articles he could not understand.(p. 248)[Otto] Zacharias also asked if he could use Darwin’s name on a new journal he wished to start in Germany, called Darwinia…. Such journals, as they all recognized, played a fundamental role in distributing evolutionary ideas.  The story of Nature’s conception in 1869 was prime evidence of the value of having a tightly-controlled, well-distributed mouthpiece…. One of the first journals to take up Darwin’s views in Germany had been the weekly magazine Ausland (“Abroad”), a heady mix of biology and society, pumped up with a stream of articles from Haeckel and other evolutionists.  During the Franco-Prussian War, the editor, Friedrich von Hellwald, claimed Darwinism as proof that warfare between nations was a natural law, a standard view of the time that did not prevent his journal’s expiry a few years afterwards.(pp. 438-439).These and many other tidbits from Browne’s book reveal that the Darwinian revolution was largely a propaganda coup.  It would have been more honest for Nature to have been named Naturalism.(Visited 11 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

SA surfers shine Down Under

first_img“It’s such a great honour to have my name on the winner’s board – it’s just so good.” Port Elizabeth connectionFormer Port Elizabeth schoolgirl Philippa Anderson moved to Newcastle five years ago. On Sunday she became the first ever local surfer to win a final at Newcastle’s 24th annual Surfest competition. “This is the biggest win for me ever and to top it off here at Merewether in front of my family is just so good,” Anderson said. SAinfo reporter South African surfer Travis Logie and former Port Elizabeth schoolgirl Philippa Anderson captured the men’s and women’s titles respectively in the Mark Richards Pro and the Maitland Toyota Women’s Pro at Merewether Beach in Australia on Sunday. Three South Africans are contesting the elite ASP World Tour this year: Jordy Smith, David Weare, and Greg Emslie. The 17-year-old smashed a 23-year-long hoodoo during which a local surfer had never won a main event at Newcastle when she edged out Australian Dimity Stoyle by 15.10 to 13.85 points to have her name etched on the Maitland Toyota Open trophy. “This is a huge confidence boost. I’ve been training so hard, so it’s good to see it pay off,” Logie said. Logie, the International Surfing Association’s Open men’s champion in 2002, recorded two rides of 8.75 out of 10 to narrowly defeat Courtney, whose best ride scored 8.25, by 17.50 to 16.45 in the clean one-metre waves. 24 March 2009 ‘A very prestigious event’“This is a very prestigious event and I always come here. I am stoked to win at Newcastle. Mark Richards is a true icon of the sport of surfing and to win a trophy named in his honour is unbelievable,” he added. He believes his knee is now 100 percent and Sunday’s win was the confidence boost he had been looking for as he works at returning to the elite ASP Dream Tour. Anderson, who came through the junior ranks of the Hunter Water Stars of the Future program at the Newcastle contest, will put her $2 500 prize money towards buying a car, even though she is too young to drive unaccompanied. On the comeback trail after failing to re-qualify for a fifth successive season on the ASP World Tour at the end of 2008, Logie secured a confidence-boosting victory over 2009 Dream Tour surfer Drew Courtney in the tightest men’s final at Newcastle for many years. One of the very best small wave surfersConsidered by his peers to be one of the very best small wave surfers on the planet, Logie is recovering from a serious knee injury and said his win on Sunday ranks alongside his victory at a six-star event in Hossegor, France in 2004, in his estimation. While the 500 ratings points earned in the two-star-rated event will probably not figure in his top seven results at the end of the year, the morale-boosting win over an ASP Dream Tour incumbent and the $5 000 winner’s cheque will benefit his objective of joining the world’s top-45-ranked surfers for a fifth season in 2009.
