National Under-17 head coach, Andrew Edwards, is highly confident that this team has enough talent to do well in the Caribbean Football Union (CFU) tournament in Trinidad and Tobago. The team left yesterday for the Under-17 tournament that kicks off tomorrow. Jamaica advanced to the final stage after easily winning Group Four in the previous stage in July. They had wins against Guyana, 4-1; Antigua and Barbuda, 3-1; and the US Virgin Islands 9-0. Now, the Jamaicans are placed in Group A for the final round of qualifiers to the CONCACAF tournament and ultimately the FIFA Under-17 World Cup next year. “We have an absolutely fantastic chance as we have a team that can qualify for the CONCACAF tourney,” Edwards told The Gleaner yesterday. “I think the talent level and discipline in the team are very good. The youngsters play to instruction, and that is very important in moving forward,” he shared. The Jamaicans will play against Bermuda tomorrow, then Haiti on Sunday and finish the group stage when they face hosts Trinidad and Tobago next Tuesday. In Group B, the teams are Cuba, Curacao, Suriname and Guadeloupe. After the completion of the group stage, the top two teams from each group will advance to the semi-finals scheduled for September 23. The final will be on September 25.

In the opening minutes, he went strong to the rim while being booed and dunked, at which point a segment of the crowd cheering largely drowned out the boo-birds. Later, as Davis stood on the foul line taking free throws, part of the crowd booed while others chanted, “A-D, A-D!”By halftime, Davis had 24 points and his highlights included a reverse alley-oop tip at the front of the rim while being foul and crashing to the floor on his back.

BY: Indrawattie Natrammother of five formerly of Pomeroon River, Region Two (Pomeroon-Supenaam) is seeking more markets for her casareep, which is branded under ‘Pomeroon Cassava Casreep’ bottled by Denis Campbell.Lorleen Boston and her father Denis Campbell standing in front of her stallLorleen Boston and father Denis Campbell, 54, had started the business almost a year ago selling casareep, oranges and various tree barks.Standing in the sweltering heat at the Anna Regina Market, Boston said that she would like to source more markets for her casareep. Currently business is slow due to the inability to access profitable and steady market. The mother vends daily at the Anna Regina old market. When asked what makes her casareep different from the other agro-processors, she said the ‘thickness’, ‘flavour’ and ‘spices’.“This casareep is different, the juice is boiled until it is reduced by half in volume, to the consistency of molasses; it is just as thick.”She told Guyana Times that it is her desire to see her business prosper with more markets through better packaging and her cassreep reaching more housewives. She related that when she gets busy with her children and schooling, her aunt usually assists her in boiling the casareep.She also related that when there is a high demand for casareep she employs persons from the Amerindian community of Manwarine. The vendor also disclosed she sources casareep from other persons who manufacture it.“You see many Amerindian women are mostly home, they have nothing to do but they make casareep, they don’t have the time to sell, so I also assist those women in selling their casareep,” Boston added.The mother said that she started the business so she could be more independent and provide better for her children: “I want to be self-sufficient, independent and earn my own money; and I can only do this if I start my own business.”She awakens as early as 04:00h every morning to catch an early bus to reach market on time to sell her casareep. The family is presently living at Charity Squatting area.Her father told this newspaper he assists his daughter in the labelling process. The father of six explained that the small bottle sells for $500 and the large $1500. Gallon quantities are also available based on ‘order’.

If they’re competent to fight this war, then I ought to be singing on ‘American Idol,”‘ Cheney said. The remark drew robust laughter. “I don’t know why that’s funny,” Cheney said at the event for Rep. Ric Keller, R-Fla. Democrats were quick to counterpunch. “Under this administration’s watch, Iraq has become a training ground and launching pad for international terrorism, North Korea has likely quadrupled its nuclear arsenal, bin Laden remains on the loose, terror attacks across the world are on the rise, and Katrina exposed the staggering gaps in the administration’s ability to protect America,” said Reid spokesman Jim Manley. Democratic National Committee spokesman Luis Miranda said: “Instead of offering a plan for victory in Iraq, the vice president today again resorted to attacks to try to distract from the Bush administration’s commitment to a failed strategy.” Bush and Cheney appeared to be repeating a page from the 2004 presidential campaign. During a campaign stop then in Des Moines, Iowa, Cheney said a vote for Democrat John Kerry would risk another terror attack. Making the “wrong choice” on Election Day would mean Kerry would follow a pre-Sept. 11 policy of reacting defensively, Cheney said. Some wary Republicans on the ballot in November have been trying to stay at arm’s length from the White House to avoid being tainted by Bush’s job approval ratings, in the 30s. But presidents attract crowds and supporters with deep pockets, and Bush remains the nation’s most successful fundraiser. Cheney, whose poll numbers are even lower than Bush’s, is not far behind. Both have raised tens of millions of dollars for GOP congressional and gubernatorial candidates running in this year’s midterm elections. Bush spoke at a fundraiser for Rep. Mike Sodrel, raising more than $500,000 to help the freshman Republican beat Democrat Baron Hill. The race is considered a tossup in the GOP quest to retain control of the House. He said the Republicans have an economic record to run on, and he urged Congress to make permanent various tax cuts due to expire within a few years. He tried to draw a sharp contrast between the two parties’ economic policies. “In 2001, more than 90 percent of the congressional Democrats voted against cutting income tax rates,” Bush said, referring to votes on his initial package of tax cuts. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney launched a one-two political punch against Democrats on Friday, saying they are ill-equipped to handle the economic recovery or the War on Terror. Shouldering dismal poll ratings, Bush worked to frame the debate ahead of this year’s congressional elections by telling supporters that “the difference is clear” between the two parties on how to sustain the recovery. “If you want the government in your pocket, vote Democrat,” Bush said. “If you want to keep more of your hard-earned money, vote Republican.” Cheney, speaking at a GOP fundraiser in Orlando, Fla., took on Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid and party chairman Howard Dean by name. He said leading Democrats have demanded a “sudden withdrawal from the battle against terrorists in Iraq – the very kind of retreat that Osama bin Laden has been predicting.”

MARINA DEL REY – Jerry Ortiz is back on patrol.A boat was christened Tuesday in Marina del Rey in honor of the slain deputy and Diamond Bar resident.“Jerry Ortiz was an individual who had a great passion for public safety,” said Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca. “He was a consummate professional and he was also a very loving son, husband and father.”Ortiz was killed June 24 in a shooting in Hawaiian Gardens. The gang detective was looking for Jose Luis Orozco, 27, a known gang member. When Ortiz knocked on a door during a search, Orozco allegedly came out and shot the deputy in the face.Dozens of deputies, along with cops from Long Beach and county firefighters, joined Ortiz’s family at the Marina del Rey Sheriff’s Station to christen the $450,000 boat.“It means a lot to the family,” said Mike Ortiz, the slain deputy’s brother. “It’s a great honor, he deserves every bit of it.”Chela Ortiz, the deputy’s wife of only three weeks, declined to comment. Chela, Mike and Ortiz’s mother, Rosa, toured the boat and paused to take pictures.The boat is a powerful, high-tech crime-fighting and rescue tool, said sheriff’s Lt. Greg Nelson.The “Jerry Ortiz” can reach 40 knots per hour, stop on a dime and even move sideways. It features twin turbo diesel engines cranking out more than 300 horsepower each. It is also equipped with fire hoses and manned by two emergency medical technician-trained deputies.The boat will see service not only in Marina del Rey, where more than 1 million visitors enjoy the waters every year, but along the entire Los Angeles County coastline from Long Beach to the Ventura County border.“Today is a day for us to feel good,” Baca said. “Because Jerry Ortiz is back on patrol.”Orozco will be in Norwalk Superior Court on Dec. 2 for the setting of a preliminary hearing date. firstname.lastname@example.org(626) 962-8811, Ext. 2717
Naomh Conail have failed in their bid to have their Senior Championship semi-final against Glenswilly brought to a replay.The Glenties side had appealed the game to the county board in relation to the black carding of Ciaran Bonner in last Sunday’s semi-final at O’Donnell Park.They claimed that Bonner had received a previous yellow card before being black-carded by referee Jimmy White. This would have meant that Bonner would have got a red card and Glenswilly could not have brought on a replacement.Ironically the player who replaced Bonner, Oisin Crawford, scored one of two late frees which dragged Glenswilly over the line.Naomh Conail presented their case to the county board last night but it was rejected.It is yet unclear as to the reasons why the appeal was rejected. The final between St Eunans and Glenswilly will now go ahead at MacCumhaill Park at 4pm on Sunday.

When the Beagle was sailing the coast of Argentina in 1834, it stopped at the mouth of the Santa Cruz River. 25-year-old Charles Darwin, who had been reading Lyell’s Principles of Geology, got out and explored the area on foot as the crew made camp on the cliffs. Darwin was impressed by the six-mile-wide canyon with its comparatively small river. He was led from his reading of Lyell to assume that this was another example of the cumulative power of small processes to produce big changes over vast periods of time. Geologist Steven Austin recently visited Camp Darwin at the Santa Cruz canyon. He examined the basalt cliffs and cobbles with a geologist’s eyes and came to a quite different interpretation. “What I saw at Camp Darwin utterly shocked me,” he said. “I saw abundant evidence for a colossal flood that must have rapidly performed significant erosion in the valley.” His results can be found at ICR, where he explains that the nature of the cliffs, the basalt being on one side and not the other, and the large rounded boulders on top of the cliff (some as big as 15 feet in diameter), and other evidences speak clearly of catastrophism, not uniformitarianism. This incorrect assumption, he believes, was young Darwin’s first wrong turn that led him to view the world evolving through slow, gradual accumulations of small changes. Dr. Austin has posted a 10-minute video on YouTube explaining his findings, with footage shot on location where he points to evidences you can see for yourself.This is a good example of how the glasses through which you view the world can color everything. Darwin read the world with his Lyell glasses on. Because those glasses blocked certain wavelengths, he failed to see evidence that was right in front of his nose.
