3-time Olympic champion Saori Yoshida retires from wrestling

first_imgYoshida, who began wrestling at the age of three, said she was tempted to stick around until the Tokyo Olympics.“After Rio, I had the desire to compete in Tokyo,” Yoshida said. “My father told me it’s important to know when to retire. I knew I would need my best efforts to perform well in Tokyo and when I saw how motivated the younger wrestlers coming up were I knew the time was right.”Yoshida said she would continue coaching younger wrestlers and will pursue other interests. She has already appeared in several television commercials.“I have many dreams,” Yoshida said. “I would like to do something besides wrestling. I want to seek happiness and, of course, I want to give support for the Tokyo Games.”ADVERTISEMENT Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award MOST READ Tom Brady most dominant player in AFC championship history Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Ginebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup title FILE – In this Aug. 9, 2012, file photo, Saori Yoshida of Japan celebrates after she beat Tonya Lynn Verbeek of Canada for the gold medal during their 55-kg women’s freestyle wrestling competition at the 2012 Summer Olympics, in London.

NIS will collapse given backward management

first_imgDear Editor,The National Insurance Scheme (NIS) is bound to collapse given its present management. This is a certain fact when you peruse the last actuarial report on the corporation. As the name suggests, the National Insurance Scheme is a corporation that caters for the welfare and good of all of its members when they would have reached the mature age of retirement. A well-thought-out plan for the good which works very well, especially for many of those workers who only lived for today and not for tomorrow. So, the NIS is a wonderful idea put into action.Now, why should an institution with such lofty ideals ever see bad times, failure or collapse, a question every onlooker is asking right now? Well, here’s a couple of reasons for that morbidity. As the name suggests, NIS is a welfare institution; however, if it is run purely on welfare lines, as is the present situation, then it is headed for sure failure. The NIS is also a bank; one should never lose sight of that, which means that there are inflows and outflows. If there are only outflows and not commensurate inflows, then again I say it would become a bankrupt body. Then, it is a warning bell to the powers that be that the Insurance Scheme is in trouble and there have to be mechanisms put in place to have it run on commercial lines. This is something the previous Administration had well in place which transformed the Scheme into a huge success story.Another factor that must be taken into consideration is the fact that NIS is almost totally dependent on the contributions coming in from Government employed personnel and from – the very important factor – investment. On these pillars, the NIS is buoyed; without these, it will fall.Now, when this People’s National Congress (PNC)-led Administration came into power that viability was dampened in two key areas, that is in the Government service areas when over 7000 sugar workers were dismissed from regular earnings and regular NIS contributions. In addition, there were others such as 2000 workers more in the Amerindian community who lost their jobs. This means that direct inflows into the Scheme were heavily affected.But this is my main concern and I draw your attention to the way this Government dealt with investment made by the People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) Government. I make mention of the Berbice Bridge investment made by NIS; the incoming PNC Administration deliberate move tampered with the above-board and sound investment made by the previous Administration through the NIS in that bridge. They threw the original contract overboard and deliberately lowered the toll for the users of the Bridge. That meant instant failure as it puts the returns of the investors in jeopardy.When failure begins to seep into the PNC/AFC coalition, they turn again to blame that failure on the PPP/C. Outrageous!I must hasten to a close, but I will say this, do you know that the successful and efficient management of the National Insurance Corporation (NIC) there has led the Government of St Lucia to cease payment of pensions? Yes, since 2003, all Government employed workers are now paid a percentage of their earnings by the NIC? If you do not believe me, I urge you to make a telephone call to the Government or Corporation and you will be apprised of it. Tells you how backward the PNC-led coalition has led Guyana, instead of progressing we are digressing.Respectfully,Neil   Adamslast_img read more

Lawmakers Given 14-Day Ultimatum to Return ‘Old’ Official License Plates

first_imgOne of the authorized and real official license car plates of members of House of RepresentativesThe Daily Observer has reliably gathered that the leadership of the House of Representatives, through Speaker Bhofal Chambers, has given a 14-day ultimatum to current members and former members of  the House of Representatives of the 54th and 53rd Legislature respectively, who were issued the “Old Official License Plates,” to return them to the Chief Clerk’s office.The Speaker has also demanded staffs and support staffs of the House of Representatives, who were assigned the “Old License Plates,” to do same.According to an anonymous tip, a circular dated July 10, 2018, signed by Chief Clerk Mildred Sayon under the directive of Speaker Chambers, titled: “Retrieval of the Old Official License Plates of the Honorable House of Representatives.Another authorized and real official license plates of members of the House of Representatives“By directive of Hon. Bhofal Chambers, Speaker of the 54th Legislature, former members of the House of Representatives of the 53rd and current members of the House of Representatives of the 54th Legislature, are to turn over the assigned old official license plates to the Office of the Chief Clerk,” the circular said, according to the anonymous tip.It added: “This mandate should claim the attention of all concerned as the Speaker expects your response to this call in two weeks, as of the date stated above (July 10, 2018).”The old license plates, either dominantly black or white do not have “LEGISLATURE or LB,” unlike the new License Plates which have “LEGISLATURE or LB.”There are reports that the Ministry of Finance and Development Planning (MFDP), the Ministry of Transport (MoT), the Liberia National Police (LNP) and the Liberia Revenue Authority (LRA) met the leadership of the House of Representatives and the Liberian Senate to help in the collection and retrieval of the Old Official License Car Plates.However, besides the fight to curb corruption and generate revenue, there are also reports that, “Certain vehicles with the old license plates have been spotted in indecent places or are being used in crime-related activities.“In view of this development, the Honorable Speaker, through the leadership of the House of Representatives, has given instructions for the immediate recall of all the old license plates issued in the 53rd Legislature,” the anonymous source said.It has also been reported that the Liberian Senate has further instructed the Ministry of Transport and the Liberia National Police (LNP) to arrest anyone who is possession of the Senate’s old license plates.Meanwhile, an employee of the General Service Agency (GSA) in the Motor Pool Department said over 300 “Old License Plates” were distributed to members of the House of Representatives and Senate, as well as staffs of the 53rd Legislature and are to expire on Monday, January 15, 2018.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Guardiola critical of much-changed City

first_img“From tomorrow we will be happy to be in the quarter-finals for the second time in this club’s history. We are new in that position, so we are so happy for that,” said Guardiola.“Even the first half was quite good, in the second half we forgot to attack, we forgot to play.“Just to pass to pass for itself is nothing, so the second half was really, really poor.”Guardiola could afford the luxury of making six changes from Sunday’s dominant 1-0 win over Chelsea, but still saw his side extend their aggregate advantage early on when Gabriel Jesus tapped home after just eight minutes.However, Mohamed Elyounoussi exposed some slack City defending to smash in an equaliser for the visitors nine minutes later before Michael Lang rocketed home a spectacular winner 19 minutes from time.“It’s special for us to beat this team and we go out of the Champions League with a decent performance in a very difficult situation,” said Basel coach Raphael Wicky.City could have the Premier League mathematically wrapped up by the time they are next in Champions League action in early April.– City not yet ready? –Despite losing for just the fourth time all season, the runaway Premier League leaders still cruised through 5-2 on aggregate after doing the hard work in Switzerland three weeks ago.And on this evidence they will need the likes of Sergio Aguero, Kevin De Bruyne and David Silva to be well-rested and in-form if they are to deliver the dream of their Abu Dhabi owners by winning the European Cup for a first time as a number of youngsters and fringe players failed to impress.“I understand after we see the second half the people that say the team is not ready to fight for everything,” added Guardiola.However, the Catalan coach hopes a three-week break following Monday’s trip to Stoke will leave his side refreshed for the last eight.“We are in the quarter-finals, that is the good news, and after we will see how we will arrive in the quarter-finals.“We have one more game on Monday and then we have three weeks off. In 180 minutes it is 5-2, so we are so happy to be in the next stage.”Leroy Sane was one of few regular starters retained in Guardiola’s starting XI and continued his supreme form by creating the opener.Jesus hadn’t started since suffering knee ligament damage on New Year’s Eve, but had the simplest of tasks to get back among the goals when Bernardo Silva latched onto Sane’s pass to produce a inch-perfect low cross for the Brazilian.City should have gone even further in front as Silva’s shot from a dangerous Sane cut-back was blocked before Basel goalkeeper Tomas Vaclik made a fine block to deny Ilkay Gundogan his third goal of the tie.However, a minute later Basel were level as Blas Riveros burst down the left and his deflected cross was dispatched powerfully past Claudio Bravo by Elyounoussi.Guardiola grew visibly frustrated on the touchline as his side also started the second period slowly.And they were punished when Elyounoussi’s low cross was blasted past Bravo at his near post from a narrow angle by Lang.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Win some, lose some: Manchester City coach Pep Guardiola on Wednesday © AFP / Oli SCARFFMANCHESTER, United Kingdom, Mar 8 – Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola criticised his heavily rotated side for “forgetting to attack” despite reaching the Champions League quarter-finals 5-2 on aggregate over Basel on Wednesday.City suffered a first home defeat in 15 months as the Swiss champions came from behind to win 2-1 at the Etihad Stadium and salvage some pride from their last-16 tie after being thrashed 4-0 on home turf in the first leg three weeks ago.last_img read more

Brazil experiment for friendlies without Neymar

first_imgThe talent-packed side’s preparations have been sidetracked by the foot injury Neymar suffered playing for Paris Saint-Germain in February.

Music an Oasis for Manchester City’s Pep Guardiola

first_imgGuardiola said in a wide-ranging interview — topics included his thoughts on the refugee crisis — that he and his family sing it in unison when they go out together.“I like that, after what happened in Manchester at the arena, now it is a song for the people, you know? ” Guardiola told the BBC website.“Like in the video when everyone is in silence and one woman starts to sing the song and everybody sings, that is a moment, it was so touching for my family and for myself.”Guardiola admits the song “puts me in the best of myself when I listen — it’s a masterpiece”. On the night of the attack, Guardiola and his son did not attend the concert, but endured some nervous moments when they could not contact the rest of the family.“At the end we were lucky,” he said.“Many people suffered, and we were lucky. Life is like this. We were in a better position than many unfortunate ones.”– ‘It’s about humanity’ –Not looking back in anger: Manchester City’s Spanish manager Pep Guardiola. © AFP / GENYA SAVILOVGuardiola lists five other songs which resonate with him — two from his beloved Catalonia, including the 1970 song Fiesta by Joan Manuel Serrat.“I was not a guy who went to a lot of parties. At 13 years old I was going to Barcelona’s academy,” he said.“In the summer, when school was finished, everyone would go to the Sant Joan party and it’s a song that reminds me a lot of my little town of Santpedor when I was young.”Guardiola also named Elton John’s ‘Your Song’ and ‘Ole Blue Eyes’, as well as Frank Sinatra’s ‘New York New York’, where the Spaniard spent time during the sabbatical that followed his hugely successful spell in charge of Barcelona.“Sinatra was a fighter; he had work ethic, not just the talent,” he said.Guardiola reveals he, too, had to fight when he was in New York, to learn German ahead of taking up the head coaching role at Bayern Munich.“It is so complicated to learn,” said Guardiola.“Three or four hours a day in the morning with the grammar, after two months I thought: I’m going to call and break the contract.“It is so complicated even for German kids to learn. Can you imagine for a 41-year-old man?“But I am stubborn.”Guardiola’s colleagues — save perhaps Liverpool’s Jurgen Klopp — are renowned for not being too aware of what is going on in the outside world, but it is not an accusation one can level at the Spaniard.Guardiola is horrified at the attitude of governments such as in Italy who are refusing to take in refugees contrasting it with the welcome those fleeing the Spanish Civil War received © AFP / LOUISA GOULIAMAKIHe has strong thoughts on the refugee crisis, drawing a parallel with the Spanish Civil War and how doors abroad that were opened to those who fled it are now closed.“All around the Mediterranean people are dying and the governments in Italy, Spain, it is not allowed for the people to rescue the people who are dying.,” he said.“I don’t know what kind of society we are going to do because it’s not about the law, it’s about humanity.“If there are people dying and heroes going in with open arms to rescue them, and the governments don’t let them do that, it’s because we are going really, really bad.”0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Don’t Look Back In Anger the song adopted by Manchester in the wake of the 2017 terror attack which left 22 dead resonates with Pep Guardiola whose wife and daughters were at the Ariana Grande concert © AFP / Ben STANSALLLONDON, United Kingdom, Oct 25 – ‘Don’t Look Back In Anger’ by Manchester band Oasis has become the city’s anthem since last year’s terror attack, and is one that has had a powerful impact on Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola.The 47-year-old Spaniard’s wife and daughters escaped unharmed from the bombing at the Ariana Grande concert at the Manchester Arena in May last year which left 22 dead.last_img read more

Depth, teamwork returns Hart to final

first_imgDepth has been one of Hart High’s girls’ basketball team’s strengths, and the Indians hope their team-first mentality can carry them against Foothill League rival Canyon in the Southern Section Div. I-A championship Saturday at the Pyramid at Long Beach State. Starters Megan Ford (knee) and Tatianna Thomas (ankle) have missed extended time with injuries, but it hasn’t slowed Hart (26-4), which has won 14 in a row by an average margin of 26.3 points. Among the fill-ins has been senior Amanda Sreden, whose hustle and determination has kept her in the starting lineup in place of Thomas, who still isn’t 100 percent. Ford is back after missing 14 games. “Once I got a chance to be in the starting lineup, I just knew I had to step it up,” Sreden said. “The playoffs are do-or-die, and everyone wants to win. Now that we’re in the championship game, it’s something I’ve been working toward all year. You don’t get opportunities like this very often, so you’ve got to take advantage.” A look back: Canyon performed poorly in both regular-season meetings with Hart, losing 43-29 Jan. 20 at Canyon and 50-28 in the finale Feb. 9 at Hart. Perhaps the unseeded Cowboys provide a scare as the tournament’s Cinderella team. They knocked off second-seeded Buena of Ventura 37-36 in the first round and followed with three more playoff victories by five or fewer points. “It’s going to be a lot tougher this time because Canyon is on a roll, and they’re peaking at the right time, which is something you always want to do,” Munroe said. “That first-round upset at Buena gave Canyon a nice boost and a lot of confidence.” Hart has defeated Canyon in their past 11 meeting since a 63-58 loss in 2000. Since Canyon joined the Foothill League in 1992-93, Hart leads the series 27-1. The big picture: Canyon center Cheryl Stevens figures to cause Hart problems because she’s at least five inches taller, at 6-foot-4, than every Indians player. She is coming off an impressive performance in Tuesday’s 56-55 overtime upset of J.W. North of Riverside, totaling eight points, 14 rebounds, five steals – and 10 blocked shots. A spot player until this season, Stevens, who has committed to Princeton, averages 9.4 points, 9.1 rebounds, 5.5 blocks and 2.6 steals. On the rise: Hart has cracked Cal-Hi Sports’ top 20 for the first time in the post-Ashlee Trebilcock era, climbing to No. 19 this week. Presale tickets: Tickets to Saturday’s game are available at Hart. Canyon is not selling presale tickets.

She instead is focused on passing and defense. She’s had 15 assists in Hart’s past two playoff games and helped the Indians hold opponents to less than 40 points per game this season. Sreden also leads the team in free-throw percentage, making 85 percent of her shots. “I call Amanda my jack-of-all-trades,” coach Dave Munroe said. “She’s one of our best passers and just a great team player. She’s just worked her butt off in practice and continued to work hard so she’d be ready to go whenever we needed her, and now we really need her.” Sreden also is a talented softball player, but she figures to miss the first part of the softball season, which begins Saturday. She’s looking for the Indians to win the title after losing in finals in three of the past four seasons, and Hart and Canyon (23-7) then have Southern California Regionals for the state championship. “Yes, softball is starting, but for now I’d rather be playing basketball,” Sreden said. “It’s going to be our fourth time reaching the final, and the fourth time is the charm.” last_img read more

Mr Brian Gallagher, Proprietor of The Station House Hotel said he was delighted to be involved with the event.“Danny McDaid is a household name across the country.
