Amore admitted to his charge, but Rose denied any involvement in his incident. The court heard that on July 10, in the vicinity of Orange Walk, Bourda, Amore assaulted a female Police corporal. It was also alleged that on the said day, while in the vicinity of Leopold Street, Werk-en-Rust, Rose assaulted Constable Denford Rankin with intent to cause him actual bodily harm. Two other charges were read to Rose, detailing that on the same day, he resisted being arrested by Constable Rankin, and behaved in a disorderly manner. The Police prosecutor did not object to Rose bail placed on bail, and Rose was placed on bail in the sum of $10,000 for the disorderly behaviour charge; $30,000 on the resisting arrest charge, and $40,000 on assaulting the Police charge. He will make his next court appearance on July 16. Amore, meanwhile, was fined $10,000 for assaulting the female Police officer.last_img read more


first_imgBut Sead Kolasinac equalised six minutes after half-time and Aaron Ramsey put Arsenal ahead seven minutes after that as the Gunners recorded their 10th successive home win in the Premier League.There were few signs early in the game of the struggle in store for Wenger’s men and such was Arsenal’s command in the first 20 minutes they felt free to pass the ball with all the intensity of a five-a-side training match.Their lack of urgency, however, meant that Arsenal’s only significant efforts on goal in that period came when Per Mertesacker headed an Alexis Sanchez free-kick straight at former Gunners ‘keeper Lukasz Fabianski and Hector Bellerin’s shot was blocked by Federico Fernandez.Perhaps the feeling that it was all too easy was responsible for the error by Laurent Koscielny that led to Swansea taking the lead.As he stepped forward to clear a long diagonal ball from Mike van Der Hoorn, the Frenchman stumbled and then fell, leaving Swansea’s on-loan Chelsea forward Tammy Abraham in possession and in space.Abraham instantly turned and slipped the ball between Bellerin and Mertesacker for Clucas to run onto and roll his shot under Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech.– Lethargic –The shock should have roused Arsenal, but they were still lethargic. Mesut Ozil was unable to reach a pass over the defence by Sanchez and Clucas might have had a second goal as a gap suddenly opened up in front of him before he shot just wide of Cech’s right-hand post.Fabianski did not have to make a serious save until the 40th minute, when Sanchez exchanged passes with Nacho Monreal and fired a fierce shot towards the far top corner. Fabianski, though, flung out his right arm to push the ball over the crossbar.Swansea had yet another chance to double their lead when Mertesacker was caught in possession by Jordan Ayew, who advanced and saw his shot saved by Cech at the expense of a corner.Whatever veteran French boss Wenger said at half-time seemed to inspire his players and a more aggressive Arsenal were level six minutes after the break.Alexandre Lacazette forced his way into the Swansea penalty area and both he and Ozil had shots blocked. The ball ran loose to Kolasinac and although Fabianski got a hand to his shot he could not keep it out.If Arsenal expected Swansea to collapse, they were disappointed. They had the ball in the net barely a minute later only for Abraham’s close-range finish to be ruled out for offside.But in the 58th minute Arsenal were ahead. This time Kolasinac was the creator, chesting the ball down and finding Ramsey in an unusual amount of space in the Swansea defence.The Welshman’s first-time left-foot shot was not powerfully struck, but too well-placed for Fabianski to save.Suddenly full of running, Arsenal made chances to extend their lead. Lacazette was inches from connecting with Bellerin’s cross from the right, and Bellerin’s shot at full stretch from Ramsey’s pass sent the ball looping over Fabianski but against the bar.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Arsenal got off to a strong start in the second half and were rewarded by Kolasinac’s goal just six minutes into second period.

first_img0Shares0000Since Jupp Heynckes replaced Carlo Ancelotti as Bayern Munich’s head coach at the start of October 2017, the team have won 22 of 23 matches © AFP/File / Gunter SCHIFFMANNBERLIN, Germany, Feb 19 – Bayern Munich host Besiktas in the last 16, first leg of the Champions League riding a 13-match winning streak under Jupp Heynckes, the architect behind the revival of his 2013 treble-winning heroes.Since Heynckes replaced Carlo Ancelotti as head coach at the start of October, Bayern have won 22 of 23 matches going into Tuesday’s clash at Munich’s Allianz Arena. Bayern were five points adrift of then-leaders Borussia Dortmund in the Bundesliga when the 72-year-old Heynckes returned for his fourth stint at the club.A 3-0 thrashing at Paris Saint-Germain in late September was Ancelotti’s final game before Bayern turned to Heynckes to fix the leaks.It was a gamble.Tending the garden and walking his dog Cando had been Heynckes’s main tasks since steering Bayern to a treble of Champions League, Bundesliga and German Cup titles five years ago.“My wife and my daughter said I should do it,” said Heynckes when Bayern came calling again.“My dog also barked twice, so that meant I should do it.”Training started an hour earlier, sessions were tougher and discipline was tightened under Heynckes.Thomas Mueller, a player Ancelotti never figured out where best to position, was moved in from the wing and deployed to roam just behind striker Robert Lewandowski.Javi Martinez was pushed forward from centre-back into defensive midfield, where he played in the 2013 campaign, and the impact was instant.– Fine tuning –Bayern won 5-0 at Freiburg in Heynckes’s first game back.“No one could have known what four years away from football had done to Jupp,” said Martinez.“Now I know: he’s stayed the same. He still has his personality – he always knows exactly when to tighten the reins.”Bayern were back in business and won their next nine games on the trot.A 2-1 defeat at Borussia Moenchengladbach in November remains their only reverse following Heynckes’s return.They reached the German Cup semi-finals the hard way after winning at RB Leipzig and Borussia Dortmund in the early rounds.Then in December, the humiliating defeat in Paris was avenged when Bayern beat PSG 3-1 in Munich – although it wasn’t enough to prevent them finishing second in their Champions League group.The Bavarians have regained their unyielding grip on first place in Germany, with their 2-1 come-from-behind win at Wolfsburg leaving them 19 points clear at the summit © AFP/File / Ronny HartmannThe Bavarians have also regained their unyielding grip on first place in Germany, with Saturday’s 2-1 come-from-behind win at Wolfsburg leaving them 19 points clear at the summit.Resting several stars, Bayern fell behind after eight minutes, but their drive and determination was rewarded as Lewandowski came off the bench to net a last-gasp penalty for his 20th league goal this season.“This will to win matches, even if it’s not so exciting at the top (of the table), just makes it fun,” said Bayern captain Mueller. “This team is simply awesome.”– Feel-good factor –Just like Mueller and Martinez, the other leading protagonists from the great 2012-13 side credit Heynckes for the club’s rejuvenation.Robben helped create both goals at Wolfsburg, whipping in a cross for Sandro Wagner and then winning the penalty which Lewandowski converted.“You could see the turnaround from the first day,” said Robben, who scored the winning goal in the 2013 Champions League final.Colombian playmaker James Rodriguez has blossomed under Heynckes, a fluent Spanish speaker © DPA/AFP/File / Torsten SilzFranck Ribery’s recovery from a knee injury has also helped, with the Frenchman on target in wins over Bayer Leverkusen and Mainz since the turn of the year.“We’re playing as a team again – with Jupp’s return, a good feeling and the faith came flooding back,” Ribery said in January.It’s not just the holdovers from the previous Heynckes era who have profited.Colombian playmaker James Rodriguez has blossomed under Heynckes, a fluent Spanish speaker and the man who led Real Madrid to Champions League glory in 1998.“This team won’t let up, regardless of what competition it is,” Heynckes warned.But whether he is in charge beyond the end of this season remains doubtful, as Heynckes insists he will walk away despite efforts to persuade him to stay.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

first_img Attendees at Saturday’s service said the pontiff’s message reinforced their own beliefs. “It is very important to recognize our genocide because if we don’t recognize this one, we cannot prevent the next one,” Mourad Iskadhian, 43, of Montebello said.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! MONTEBELLO – Area Armenians and local officials attended a prayer service conducted by His Holiness Aram I, Catholicos of the Great House of Cilicia, at the Armenian Martyrs Memorial Monument at Bicknell Park. The monument, which sits on a hill, was erected in 1968 and is dedicated to the memory of Armenians who lost their lives at the hands of the Ottoman Turkish Government from 1915 to 1921, a period many call the Armenian genocide. “This is a service that honors their memory and blesses their souls so that they may rest in peace,” Armenian National Committee spokesman Raffi Hamparian said. Montebello is one of the many cities the pontiff will visit during his month-long tour of North America. This is his second visit to California in seven years.

The pontiff’s visit occurs at a time when the United States government is considering two pieces of legislation that urge the current Turkish government to recognize the role of its predecessors in the mass killings and acknowledges the United States’ opposition to recognizing it as a genocide. The resolutions, supported by the House International Relations Committee, await action by the House of Representatives.last_img read more

She scored 692 points this season, a total that ranks ninth all-time in Drake and MVC single-season history. Wendell scored 2,551 career points, which is the third most in Drake and MVC history and third among active NCAA Division I players. She is just the fourth Bulldog and eighth MVC player to score 2,000 or more points. Wendell was selected to the All-MVC First Team all four years of her outstanding career, a feat that has been accomplished by just six others in MVC history. She was tabbed MVC Player of the Week a league-high five times this season and 14 times in her career, a total that is second all-time in Valley history behind Stiles.Wendell’s 19.8 career scoring clip ranks third all-time at Drake and sixth all-time in MVC history. She had the longest double figure scoring streak in MVC history at 102-consecutive games and scored in double figures in 124-of-129 career games.

The Bulldogs finished 18-0 in league play to win the regular season title and then claimed the MVC Tournament title with three wins in three days. The tournament title gave the Bulldogs an automatic berth to the NCAA Tournament, its first NCAA appearance since 2007. Drake University women’s basketball senior Lizzy Wendell (Blue Springs, Mo.) earned Associated Press All-America honorable mention honors, the AP announced on Monday morning. The teams are selected by a national media panel that chooses the AP Top 25 each week and voting was done before the NCAA Tournament.

first_imgThe HSE has issued a public health warning after two cases of measles have been confirmed in Ireland.Two people in North Dublin City have presented with the disease, which has prompted an Outbreak Control Team to take action to investigate and control the spread of this potentially serious illness.A public health notice was issued to bring awareness to the symptoms of measles, while an alert has been sent to all Emergency Departments and General Practitioners (GPs) in Dublin, Kildare and Wicklow. Measles is highly contagious and is spread easily.  The time between exposure to measles and developing the rash is usually 14 days (range 7-21 days). People are infectious from 4 days before rash starts until 4 days after.Measles symptoms include:High feverCoughRunny noseRed eyesRed rash that starts on head and spread down the body- this normally starts a few days after onset of illness. The rash consists of flat red or brown blotches, which can flow into each other. It lasts about 4-7 days.Vomiting, diarrhoea and tummy pain may also happen.Dr Deirdre Mulholland, Director of Public Health said “measles can be a serious illness and is highly contagious. The best protection is to be fully vaccinated with 2 doses of MMR (Measles-Mumps-Rubella)  vaccine.”If you have symptoms suggestive of measles you should stay at home, not go to school or work and phone your GP and explain that you may have measles. People who have not been fully vaccinated with MMR vaccine or have not had measles in the past are at high risk of getting measles if exposed. Those most at risk of catching measles are those who are not fully vaccinated with 2 doses of MMR vaccine such as babies younger than 12 months who are too young to be vaccinated, and those with weakened immune systems.More information on measles can be found here: http://www.hpsc.ie/a-z/vaccinepreventable/measles/factsheet/Public Health alert issued over measles was last modified: October 24th, 2017 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) Tags:healthHSEMeasleslast_img read more
