first_imgUWI FC are on a roll following five consecutive wins in the Red Stripe Premier League (RSPL). Today, the league leaders will seek a sixth consecutive win when they face lowly Harbour View FC at the UWI Bowl.Last Thursday, UWI FC whipped bottom-placed team Boys’ Town 4-0 and improved to 19 points. They are highly favoured to pull off another home win against Harbour View, who are sitting in an unfamiliar 11th position in the 12-team table.Goalkeeper Amal Knight, the team’s vice-captain, says that his team is very upbeat at this time.”We had some aims and objectives. One was to get a certain amount of points in the first round of the competition, which we have achieved. Now, we want to continue the momentum,” Knight disclosed during the RSPL weekly press conference yesterday at Red Stripe, Spanish Town Road.Knight spoke of the team’s title ambition in only their second season in top-flight competition.”Last season, we missed out by a point for a spot in the semi-finals. This season, we aim to do better. We were beaten 5-0 by Harbour View last season and that was humiliating. Harbour View are at the bottom of the ladder, but we don’t want to get complacent. We want to focus on ourselves and won’t take them lightly,” Knight added.Knight apart, the Marcel Gayle-coached UWI will rely on captain and the competition’s leading goalscorer Rochane Smith, who is on six goals, Dawyne Smith and Anthony Greenland.Meanwhile, Harbour View’s head coach Ludlow Bernard is bracing for a tough away game.”We are anticipating a very good game against UWI on Sunday. We had a very good game against Humble Lion that ended 1-1 last Thursday night, so we want to win this game as most of our points have been earned on the road,” Bernard said on Friday.Harbour View will look to players such as John-Ross Edwards, Hugh Evans, Andre Messam and Nicholas Beckett to stop UWI.Today’s matcheso 3 p.m: Jamalco vs Humble Lion at Wembley Centre of Excellenceo 3 p.m: Portmore United vs Montego Bay United at Spanish Town Prison Ovalo 3 p.m: Maverley-Hughenden vs Arnett Gardens at Constant Springo 3 p.m: Tivoli Gardens vs FC Reno at Edward Seaga Complexo 3 p.m: UWI FC vs Harbour View at UWI Bowlo 3 p.m: Waterhouse vs Boys’ Town at Drewsland Stadiumlast_img read more

first_img Glentoran goalkeeper Elliot Morris should have done better Crusaders took the lead over Glentoran after just ten seconds of their Northern Irish Premiership match on Saturday.The home side went on to win 3-0 having got off to a very quick start which set them on their way. 1 From kick off, the strikers played the ball back to Sean Ward, who lumped it into the opposition half.The ball flew out to the right wing, but was headed back across to the centre by Jordan Owens.It landed in front of Matthew Snoddy, with the ball perfectly placed for a half volley from 25 yards.The 25-year-old took the opportunity, smashing it towards goal, however it should have been a relatively comfortable save for Glentoran stopper Elliot Morris.However, he only managed to get a hand on the strike and could not keep it from bouncing over the line with just ten seconds on the clock.You can watch the video of the goal below. 👀Blink and you’ll miss it! ⏰It’s taken just 10 – YES that’s 10 – seconds for @CrusadersFC to take the lead against @Glentoran at SeaviewJust as quick as you, @alanshearer 😉Text Video Audio – involved!

first_imgMembers of Carndonagh Boxing Club.A well-known boxing club may now be unable to move into its new clubhouse after vandals caused up to €3,000 of damage.Windows were smashed and doors kicked in during the attack at Carndonagh Boxing Club on Sunday night last.The premises, at Barrack Hill, has been a labour of love for workers at the club with a total of €150,000 already spent on the building. John Lynch, a committee member of Carndonagh ABC, told Donegal Daily that they are disgusted by the attack.“We have rented a premises for the past 30 years at Chapel Street and this was our dream building.“All the money was raised through fundraising and now these vandals come along and attack the building for no reason other than thuggery.“We are very annoyed and we don’t know when we will be able to move into the premises now,” he said. The club, which has up to 60 members, boasts a number of All-Ireland champions.John added “The aim of the club has always been to give kids some direction in their lives.“Now other kids have come along and done this. It’s just so frustrating and we don’t have the money to carry out these repairs at the moment.”  BOXING CLUB ON ROPES AFTER DISGUSTING VANDALISM ATTACK was last modified: June 17th, 2014 by StephenShare 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:Carndonagh Boxing Clubdonegalvandalism attacklast_img read more

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Sometimes the little guy wins. It happened last June when the United States Supreme Court decided Horne v. Department of Agriculture, a case involving interpretation of the Fifth Amendment which prohibits the taking of property without just compensation.Marvin and Laura Horne are California raisin growers. In fact, they have produced raisins since 1969. Raisins are governed by a federal system that originated in the 1930s to stabilize raisin prices. A board of mostly raisin growers meets annually to determine if a percentage of each grower’s crop should be set aside in order to maintain stable crop prices. The USDA then enforces this determination. The excess raisins are donated to various federal programs, exports or charity. The raisin producers receive a portion of the net proceeds from the surplus, often amounting to less than the cost of production, or nothing.When USDA ordered raisin growers to set aside 47% of their crop in the 2002-2003 growing season, Marvin and Laura Horne declined. They refused entry to the trucks sent to pick up the raisins. So the government ordered them to pay $480,000, the fair market value of the raisins plus a fine in excess of $200,000.The fight went to court and wound its way through the system, which largely sided with USDA. On June 22, 2015, the Supreme Court agreed with the Hornes that the supply management system violates the Takings Clause in the U.S. Constitution’s Fifth Amendment. The court also set aside the fines and money damages ordered by USDA. Moreover, the Court found that there is no difference between real and personal property regarding takings, as a lower court had ruled.Real property is land and items permanently affixed to the land. Personal property is all kinds of property that are not real property. The Takings Clause now applies to both types of property — makes perfect sense to me.Although the government has not ordered any raisins set aside in the past five years, the Supreme Court has made it clear in this decision that should any future set asides be mandated, the growers will need to be paid fair market value for their personal property.A Google search led to abundant information about this decision and the background of the case. Perhaps the most interesting reading was from a comments section (which I tend to avoid) from a fourth generation raisin farmer who stated, “The current rules of our industry were made by, have been governed by, and are only defended by the packers. This has been to the detriment of the growers. The proof is easy to see if you drive around the valley and see the vines being plowed out by the thousands of acres. Growers have had enough.”I have never grown a raisin, but I know precisely what he means.last_img read more
