  • Brasil, Ecuador, and Trinidad and Tobago All Victorious In Their Opening Matches In Soccer

    first_imgBy Dialogo July 16, 2011 Although the opening ceremony of the 5th Military World Games begins on Saturday July 16th at the Joao Havelange Stadium, also known as Engenhão, men’s soccer competition commenced on Friday. Hosts Brazil, along with Ecuador and Trinidad and Tobago all opened with wins. The games kicked off in the San Gennaro stadium, in Rio de Janeiro, for the match between Brazil and Algeria. For the ceremonial kick-off, the organizing committee invited famed striker Romario, world champion with the Brazilian national team at the 1994 FIFA World Cup in the United States. “Baixinho”, who’s now a congressman, spurred on the hosts as striker Renildo Gomes, who wears the same #11 jersey that Romario once did, scored the lone goal just before half time. “He talked to us in the locker room, talked to the players and gave strength to the team. Romario is Romario. Wearing the #11 is a great responsibility. The goal was in his style.” About 1,500 people were in attendance for the opening match. With Friday’s result, Brazil is currently in second in Group A. Suriname, who beat Uruguay 2-1, is in first due to goal differential. Another South American team that won their opening match was Ecuador. With two goals by Nixon Aguirre and a third by Paul Guerrero, Ecuador defeated France 3-2. Ecuador currently stands in second in group B, behind Egypt, on goal differential. In group C, Trinidad and Tobago beat Cameroon 2-1. Soccer will be played by men and women and is the longest competition, so long that it starts even before the opening of the Games. There are no changes to the rules. There are eleven athletes on each side, and they follow the same system used for World Cup soccer games.last_img read more

  • Gov. Wolf and Lt. Gov. Fetterman Renew Call for Legislature to Take up Legalization of Adult-Use Cannabis to Help with COVID Recovery, Restorative Justice

    first_img September 03, 2020 Economy,  Press Release,  Recreational Marijuana Governor Tom Wolf and Lt. Governor John Fetterman today called on the legislature to take up the legalization of adult-use cannabis to help with the state’s economic recovery amid COVID-19. Legalization will also create more outlets for important restorative justice programs in the commonwealth.“Now more than ever, we see a desperate need for the economic boost cannabis legalization can provide. So today I am proposing we legalize adult-use cannabis here in Pennsylvania with a portion of the revenue going toward existing small business grants,” Gov. Wolf said. “Half of these grants would be earmarked for historically disadvantaged businesses, many of which have had difficulties attaining other assistance because of systemic issues.“The other portion of the revenue will go toward restorative justice programs that give priority to repairing the harm done to crime victims and communities as a result of cannabis criminalization.”Lt. Governor Fetterman elaborated on the need for legislative action to provide for much-needed restorative justice.“It has been nearly a year since Governor Wolf and I urged the legislature to act on immediate decriminalization and start the discussion about legalization,” Lt. Governor Fetterman said. “Now more than ever, we must stop prosecuting people for doing something that most Pennsylvanians don’t even think should be illegal.”The governor also mentioned the economic benefits states with legal adult-use cannabis have realized. There are now 11 states plus the District of Columbia with legalized cannabis.“Some states that have legalized adult-use cannabis have received millions in additional revenue,” Gov. Wolf said. “In Washington state, adult-use cannabis brought in $319 million in tax revenue in 2018. In Colorado, that figure topped $266 million, and provided the city of Aurora with $900,000 to open a space for people experiencing homelessness. And these figures don’t count the secondary economic benefits of new businesses opening.”“Communities across our commonwealth are suffering,” said Sen. Sharif Street, who joined the governor and the lt. governor at the event. “Government has a responsibility to provide for and protect Pennsylvanians without cutting vital support systems or levying new taxes during a pandemic. After years of disparate enforcement of marijuana laws, which drives mass incarceration, social justice reform must be central to any policy on adult use. I’m proud to support Governor Wolf in this effort.”The governor, with the realization that standing up a legalized adult-use cannabis program will take time, called on the legislature to take immediate action to decriminalize possession of small amounts of marijuana, changing the charge from a misdemeanor of the third degree, which can result in jail time, to a summary offense, which does not.“I stand with the Governor and Lt. Governor in support of legislation legalizing adult-use cannabis because this issue is about far more than money,” said Rep. Jake Wheatley. “This is about criminal and social justice reform and righting past wrongs. It is about creating a flourishing new industry to help keep people safe and educate them on responsible use. Especially during a pandemic, we need to provide every avenue for relief and this one is well overdue.”The governor and lt. governor first called on the legislature to consider adult-use cannabis legalization in September 2019 after the lt. governor completed a statewide listening tour and a report back to the governor summarizing public opinion both on the tour and from tens of thousands of online submissions from Pennsylvanians. The majority of Pennsylvanians favor legalization and from the lt. governor’s report, three actions were outlined: a referendum on legalization, decriminalization and expungement of small possession convictions.Since that report was released, nothing has moved forward in the legislature.With the onset and continued effects of COVID on our commonwealth, on Aug. 25, Gov. Wolf called for adult-use cannabis as part of his broad fall legislative agenda.Along with the call to the General Assembly to pass legislation legalizing the sale and use of adult-use cannabis, Gov. Wolf proposed that a portion of the revenue be used to further restorative justice programs that give priority to repairing the harm done to crime victims and communities as a result of marijuana criminalization.In October 2019, Gov. Wolf, Lt. Gov. Fetterman and Board of Pardons Secretary Brandon Flood outlined how the then-recent expedited pardons process could benefit those who have low-level marijuana convictions by asking the Board to expedite those pardons. However, the governor and lt. governor know there is more to be done.“The time has come to legalize adult-use cannabis in Pennsylvania,” Gov. Wolf said. “It will help our economic recovery, it will help Pennsylvania families and it will help make our criminal justice system fairer.”Ver esta página en español.

  • Ogunbote urges local players to seize Super Eagles chances

    first_img “It is a question of time and we will see to whether the players are of good quality or not. I know the Eagles’ coaching crew would be convinced because we have very good players in the domestic league. “The truth is that before now, the domestic players used to have a lot of publicity at home playing for the national team. But when they are not being considered again, of course, the next thing is to go for trials in Europe on their own. “At least with the new development, the local league players once again have the opportunity to not only sell themselves to the Eagles’ coaching crew but also play their way to clubs in Europe. Therefore, my advice to them is to take this opportunity. “They need to grab this opportunity as long as it is on a level playing field with the foreign-based players and make good use of it. read also:Duru roars: Ogunbote will really transform Lobi Stars “The NPFL players need to know fully well that for them to be part of top-flight leagues in Europe, they need to do more by displacing their counterparts from Europe for Eagles shirts and make it their own permanently. But this can only come through hard work.” Rohr led the Super Eagles to finish third at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt and will be expected to strengthen his squad with more home-based players during the Afcon qualifiers. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Lobi Stars coach, Gbenga Ogunbote, has called on Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) players to seize their Super Eagles opportunities when they come. Gbenga-Ogunbote The national team has been dominated by foreign-based players since the arrival of Gernot Rohr, as the Franco-German tactician claimed the best of Nigerian players play abroad. Heartland goalkeeper Ikechukwu Ezenwa is the only consistent home-based player in the national team under the 66-year-old. Rohr, who recently signed a new two-year contract with the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), has been mandated to watch more domestic league games in order to discover talents for the national team. Ogunbote, who has previously coached Sunshine Stars, Enyimba and Enugu Rangers, has praised the directives and urged the NPFL stars to be ready to compete favourably with their foreign counterparts. “Every player, either home-based or playing abroad has a right to represent the nation as long as he is a Nigerian,” Ogunbote told the Guardian. “The news that NPFL players will be watched during league games is interesting and very good. Before now, the coaching crew of the Super Eagles never had confidence in the domestic league players. Loading…last_img read more

  • Rodgers sees Liverpool on the up

    first_img Ferguson’s 27-year reign, which will end in retirement this summer, has delivered 13 league titles to Old Trafford. Their success this season was their 20th, taking them further past Liverpool’s previous record of 18 and achieving the Scot’s primary aim all those years ago of ‘knocking Liverpool off their perch’. But with Ferguson out of the picture and David Moyes, who as Everton manager failed to record a league victory at United, Anfield, Manchester City or Arsenal in 11 years, taking over there is a sense there may be a dip in the Red Devils’ success. “It (United) has been a machine which has been working for over 25 years,” said the Reds boss. Press Association “Sir Alex has really put his identity on the club and that has led to success. It will take David time to go in and assess everything but it is a club as stable as any in the world and it is ready-made for him. “There is no doubt he (Ferguson) will be a big miss there because he has been there so many years and been part of the furniture, making the club what it is today. “But (how they react to the change) is up to the rest of the clubs. The spending powers of the teams up there will always make it close. “I can only think of Liverpool – I’ve a big enough job here to get us moving on but I think next year we can do that. “My focus is to try to close the gap. We are bridging that gap slowly this year but hopefully we will take a bigger stride next year. “But the reality is very simple: we are 30 points behind the leaders and 12 points behind fourth place so we have a lot of work to do here. We know it is a long road but we don’t like being second-best and being behind. “We don’t start the season aiming to finish fourth. The aim is always to win the title. A club of this status that is the ultimate objective – but you have to be realistic.” center_img Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers expects to make a significant move on the top four next season and Sir Alex Ferguson’s departure as Manchester United boss may provide a helping hand.last_img read more
