LifestyleLocalNews Law has to stipulate legal drinking age- NYC President by: – October 15, 2019 Tweet 198 Views one comment Share Share Share Sharing is caring! President of the National Youth Council of Dominica, Paul BaronThe National Youth Council of Dominica wants underage drinking to be punishable by law.Council President Paul Baron spoke to Dominica Vibes recently to encourage young people to participate in independence activities.He emphasised that that participation should be wholesome citing that alcohol use among young people is not adequately regulated.“What is in fact law is that you cannot sell to a minor who is under 18. However, there is not a law that bars a minor from consuming alcohol. While the minors cannot buy it, there is no law that says they cannot consume it under the age of 18. That’s a blind spot in our legal system.”Baron believes the nation’s future, its youth, ought to be priority number one.“If we have to develop as a country, we have to safeguard its most precious resource which is its young people. The responsibility of taking Dominica through the 21st century and beyond is dependent on the young people. We have a huge youthful population in fact, it is estimated to be at least 40%,” Baron says. “The National Youth Council will take up the responsibility of pursuing that and I will…personally as well.”In the meantime, however, Baron calls young people to act responsibly.“Whenever you are engaging in activities in this Creole season, do so in a responsible manner. Do not over-consume alcohol, do not engage in anti-social activities, have fun with your peers and family in a manner that you are safe and your health is safeguarded as well; do not end up in trouble. Essentially, we want the very best for you and we want to ensure that you live a fulfilling life.”He says the Council will follow that issue and continue advocating for the cause adding, “I believe that the law has to stipulate a legal drinking age.”

Head coach Tim Sherwood has had to deal with defensive shortages in recent weeks and, although Chiriches is unlikely to be involved on Sunday against Liverpool, Dawson could return. “Vlad has been out for a while and we have to make sure we take our time with him,” Sherwood told www.tottenhamhotspur.com. “We’re pleased to see him back in training this week and we’re looking to drop him back into Friday’s Under-21 game against Arsenal at the Lane. “He’s trained well and he hasn’t felt any reaction to his back, so we’re well pleased with that. “Michael trained at the end of last week as well, we’re pleased with his progress and most of all, delighted we’ve more players from which to select from.” Romania international Chiriches last started for Spurs against Manchester City on January 29 and has missed 12 matches. Dawson has been out since the 4-0 defeat at Chelsea on March 8, during which he suffered a hamstring injury which ruled him out of four games. Tottenham have received a much-needed defensive boost after captain Michael Dawson and Vlad Chiriches returned to training on Tuesday. Press Association

New Delhi: The ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 clash will witness the ultimate marquee clash between India and Pakistan. The historic rivalry, combined with the prevailing tensions and hostility currently between the two countries, makes this contest electrifying. With both countries not playing bilateral series frequently with each other, there is an added novelty to this contest which will take place in Old Trafford, Manchester. However, there is a major problem heading into the clash between India and Pakistan at Old Trafford. The same problem that has wreaked havoc in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 clash might dampen the ultimate clash for the fans.Rain, which has destroyed most of the games in the second week of the tournament, is expected to play a major part in Manchester on Sunday. The forecast for Sunday is not good, with 60 per cent chances of rain. In the build-up to the game, there have been some showers but on Sunday, there will be steady rain the likes of which was witnessed in Trent Bridge.

(Image credit: Accuweather UK)As an added disclaimer, the weather in England could change rapidly. The weather forecasts are never 100 per cent accurate when it comes to the weather in England. However, in the case of Trent Bridge and Bristol, it was accurate while for Taunton, it was not.The rain has played havoc in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 with three games getting washed out. The Pakistan vs Sri Lanka clash and Sri Lanka vs Bangladesh clash in Bristol have all been washed out due to the rain.

Rosario, Sano back stingy Dobnak as Twins beat Royals 7-2 In a strange coincidence, Avila also was called for catchers’ interference on Soler’s previous at-bat.The Twins put the game away with three runs off Ian Kennedy in the seventh.“Guys came together. We got great efforts on both sides of the ball from the very beginning of the game,” Twins manager Rocco Baldelli said. “We had really quality at-bats, hard-hit balls and a couple that left the yard.”TWINS MOVESThe Twins purchased the contract of left-hander Danny Coulombe and recalled right-hander Sean Poppen before the game. Both relievers had been on the four-man taxi squad that made the trip to Kansas City. Share This StoryFacebookTwitteremailPrintLinkedinRedditKANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Twins’ Eddie Rosario and Miguel Sano have seen Royals starter Brady Singer three times in the last three weeks.They must have learned how to hit him hard.Rosario hit a three-run homer in the first inning, Sano sent a pitch an estimated 458 feet off the home team’s Hall of Fame in left field, and Minnesota beat Kansas City 7-2 on Saturday night to even their three-game series. August 22, 2020 “When we see pitchers like that back-to-back, we study them and we just try to go out there and execute against them,” Rosario said. “As a team, we showed tonight we can do damage when we get pitchers like that.”Randy Dobnak (5-1) pitched five innings of two-run ball, continuing his brilliant start to the season. The former undrafted free agent, who just three years ago was pitching for the independent Utica Unicorns, gave up a homer to Alex Gordon but otherwise kept dodging trouble on a hot, humid night at Kauffman Stadium.Singer (1-3) allowed four runs and six hits in four innings while trying to flummox a team already familiar with him.“They had a good game plan against him, coming right out of the box swinging well,” Royals manager Mike Matheny said. “We’ve all been talking about this for several days. He was going to face them three times and would he mix it up enough to keep them off balance a third time? That’s definitely a challenge but that’s how the schedule lined up.”After the Royals jumped on the Twins with four runs in the first Friday night, it was Minnesota’s turn to strike early. Max Kepler hit a leadoff double, Jorge Polanco singled and Rosario hit Singer’s biggest mistake into the right-field fountain. TRAINER’S ROOMTwins: RHPs Jake Odorizzi (bruised ribs) and Zack Littell (right elbow inflammation) went on the injured list after getting hurt in the series opener. RHP Homer Bailey was moved to the 45-day injury list after a setback in his recovery from right biceps tendinitis. “Most teams are dealing with rosters that don’t necessarily look like they looked on opening day,” Baldelli said. “Some of these teams — and we want to be in this group — just go out there and play.”UP NEXTRoyals LHP Kris Bubic (0-3, 5.12 ERA) will try again for his first win when he makes his fifth career start and second in a row against Minnesota. He allowed two runs over 4 1/3 innings in a loss Monday. The Twins have yet to announce their starter because of their injuries.___ Associated Press Sano made it 4-0 when he crushed a pitch to left field, a home run that rivals one hit by Albert Pujols with the St. Louis Cardinals more than a decade ago for the longest to that part of the ballpark.“You know, the funny part of that, I didn’t hit it that well,” Sano said. “If I got all of it, I would have hit it over it.”Meanwhile, Dobnak was keeping the Royals off the scoreboard until the fifth, when Gordon sent a one-out pitch over the wall in center. That finally gave Kansas City some momentum: Cam Gallagher and Whit Merrifield added two-out singles and Nicky Lopez guided an RBI double down the left-field line to make it 4-2.Dobnak escaped the jam when he speared Hunter Dozier’s line drive right back up the middle.The Royals’ last chance to pull ahead came on a series of miscues in the sixth. Alex Avila was called for interference when his catcher’s mitt was nicked by Jorge Soler’s bat, then Ryan McBroom singled before Gordon was hit by a pitch to load the bases. Tyler Duffy responded by striking out Adalberto Mondesi and pinch hitter Ryan O’Hearn to end the threat. More AP MLB: https://apnews.com/MLB and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports
Sunday’s County Football Final throws in at half one in Leahy Park in Cashel.Tipp FM will have full live coverage in association with Dolans Supervalu and The Gate House Bar, Cahir. Cahir manager Tom McGlinchey says his team need to keep their focus if they are going to get their hands on the trophy this Sunday. It’s been over a decade since the South-Tipp club have won the O’Dwyer Cup, but they’ll have to dig deep to overcome reigning champs Loughmore-Castleiney. Tom McGlinchy believes a repeat of their semi-final performance will not be enough to secure a win.
Former Manchester United boss David Moyes says the club should stand by under-pressure manager Louis van Gaal.Van Gaal’s side have slipped out of the Premier League’s top four and exited the Champions League during a run of eight games without a win.”What Manchester United stand for is that they keep their managers, they’ve always supported their managers,” Moyes told BT Sport’s Clare Balding Show.”They don’t want to become a club which continuously changes their manager.”Moyes took over as United boss from Sir Alex Ferguson in the summer of 2013 but was dismissed after just 10 months in charge.Van Gaal was appointed as Moyes’ replacement at Old Trafford in May 2014. “I hope they stick with Louis van Gaal, he deserves more time,” said Moyes, who was sacked by Spanish club Real Sociedad in November.”It’s still a work in progress for him, he’s made some signings and from my experience in Spain it will take time for players from abroad to settle in. So, I think they should stick with it.”Moyes was sacked by United in April 2014 with the club seventh in the Premier League with four games of the league season remaining.”My understanding was that I was going to a club which always looked after their managers, even when they were in trouble and it wasn’t going well, you got your time to sort things out,” said Moyes. “I was under that illusion when I was there. I had a great group of players – they had recently won the Premier League under Sir Alex.”But it was going to take time for that to change, evolve and of course there was going to have to be a changeover of players in time. It couldn’t be done in 10 months.”On the subject of whether he would take the Old Trafford managerial job again, he added: “Of course I would. There are very few managers in the world who wouldn’t want to manage Manchester United.”–Follow Joy Sports on Twitter: @Joy997FM. Our hashtag is #JoySports

For most Big Ten football teams, the cancellation of non-conference games in 2020 knocks out a trio of home contests at the beginning of the season.From ESPN: “If college football can be played this fall, Big Ten presidents and athletic directors prefer playing a conference-only schedule, which would eliminate some long-distance travel and help ensure that their teams are being tested for the coronavirus universally. …MORE: Why a conference-only schedule is the only hope for college football”Some Big Ten schools preferred playing only conference foes with one additional non-league game — which would preserve some of the marquee non-Big Ten matchups — but there is overwhelming support for a 10-game conference-only schedule.” The Big Ten on Thursday became the first Power 5 conference to announce a major schedule change for 2020 as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.The conference announced that, if it is able to participate in fall sports (men’s and women’s cross country, field hockey, football, men’s and women’s soccer and women’s volleyball) based on medical advice, it will move to conference-only schedules in those sports for 2020. Which means high-profile matchups like Ohio State at Oregon, Notre Dame at Wisconsin, Michigan at Washington, Iowa State at Iowa, Penn State at Virginia Tech and Miami at Michigan state are off the table for 2020.Organized by school, below are all of the 2020 college football games that will be canceled by the Big Ten’s decision to play a conference-only schedule in 2020.Canceled 2020 college football games for each Big Ten teamIllinoisSept. 4: vs. Illinois StateSept. 12: vs. UConnSept. 19: vs. Bowling GreenIndianaSept. 12: vs. Western KentuckySept. 19: vs. Ball StateSept. 26: at UConnIowaSept. 5: vs. Northern IowaSept. 12: vs. Iowa StateSept. 26: vs. Northern IllinoisMarylandSept. 5: vs. TowsonSept. 12: vs. Northern IllinoisSept. 19: at West VirginiaMichiganSept. 5: at WashingtonSept. 12: vs. Ball StateSept. 19: vs. Arkansas StateMichigan StateSept. 12: at BYUSept. 19: vs. ToledoSept. 26: vs. MiamiMinnesotaSept. 3: vs. Florida AtlanticSept. 12: vs. Tennessee TechSept. 26: vs. BYUNebraskaSept. 12: vs. Central MichiganSept. 19: vs. South Dakota StateSept. 26: vs. CincinnatiNorthwesternSept. 12: vs. TulaneSept. 19: vs. Central MichiganNov. 14: vs. Morgan StateOhio StateSept. 5: vs. Bowling GreenSept. 12: at OregonSept. 19: vs. BuffaloPenn StateSept. 5: vs. Kent StateSept. 12: at Virginia TechSept. 19: vs. San Jose StatePurdueSept. 12: vs. MemphisSept. 19: vs. Air ForceSept. 26: at Boston CollegeRutgersSept. 5: vs. MonmouthSept. 12: vs. SyracuseSept. 19: at TempleWisconsinSept. 12: vs. Southern IllinoisSept. 19: vs. Appalachian StateOct. 3: vs. Notre Dame (at Lambeau Field)The Big Ten’s decision impacts 36 opposing programs across both the FBS and FCS, including six teams (Ball State, Bowling Green, BYU, Central Michigan, UConn and Northern Illinois) that had two Big Ten opponents on their 2020 schedules.
