Exciting times ahead for Windies – Estwick

first_imgCHENNAI, India (CMC):Despite a recent disappointing record in One-Day Internationals (ODI), assistant coach Roddy Estwick believes the signs are there that the Windies are about to turn around their fortunes in the format.Speaking ahead of tomorrow’s start of the three-match ODI series against India at the M.A. Chidambaram Stadium, Estwick said not only did the Caribbean side possess the quality players necessary but were also beginning to develop a high-class work ethic in their preparation.“It’s exciting times for us. When you look at somebody like (Shimron) Hetmyer, (Nicholas) Pooran, Shai Hope – we’ve got young batsmen who are developing,” he told a media conference here yesterday.“But the key thing is how you prepare, if you’re prepared to work hard and you’ve got a benchmark in Virat Kohli – somebody who you will see in the gym and will work very, very hard, and once our ­players can learn from players like that, then we’ve got a chance because without hard work there’s no success, and hard work is boring but it gives you great success. “Once they can learn and keep working, keep dealing with the process, then they’ve got a chance.”The Windies have struggled in ODIs in recent years and currently languish at number nine, ahead only of the likes of minnows Afghanistan, Ireland and Zimbabwe.However, the year began with much promise when they held world number ones England to a 2-2 draw in a five-match series in the Caribbean. But a wretched World Cup campaign where they managed just two wins in nine matches and finished ninth, coupled with a subsequent series loss to India at home, saw their form slump again.Estwick said the players had lifted themselves well for the ongoing subcontinent tour, however, and reflected the high level of professionalism required.“They’ve been brilliant on this tour. We can’t fault them on this tour at all, they’ve worked really hard and they’re beginning to see the results,” he pointed out.“If you look at Hetmyer’s play in the Twenty20 [it’s been] very, very exciting. Now we go to the longer format and people forget that already at a very young age he’s got four ODI hundreds, so obviously there’s a lot of talent there and once he keeps working – and that’s the key, you cannot rest with cricket, you cannot relax. “Once you rest with cricket, it will bite you so you’ve got to keep preparing, keep your processes and once you keep doing that, then you will get the results.”last_img read more

‘Many Filipinos to be adversely affected if PhilHealth is abolished,’ says spokesman

first_imgSIGN UP TO DAILY NEWSLETTERCLICK HERE TO SIGN-UP Many Filipinos will be affected if the government decides to abolish the Philippine Health Insurance Corporation (PhilHealth) especially during this time of COVID-19 pandemic, the state health insurer’s spokesman said on Friday.(MANILA BULLETIN)“Nirerespeto po natin ang views, ang pananaw ng ating pangulo patungkol sa bagay na iyan. Pero syempre po, kung mawawala po ang PhilHealth ay napakalaki po ng magiging epekto nito sa ating bayan [We respect the views of our president regarding that matter. But of course, if PhilHealth will be abolished, it will have a huge impact on our nation],” said PhilHealth spokesman Rey Balena in a public briefing.Balena said that PhilHealth helps millions of Filipinos every year.“Napakagandang programa po ng National Health Insurance Program at taun-taon po marami po, milyong Pilipino ang natutulungan po nito. Kaya napakalaking kawalan po kung mawawala ang Philhealth. Kailangan na kailangan ito lalo sa ganitong panahon ng pandemya [The National Health Insurance Program is a good program and every year, it helps millions of Filipinos. So it would be a huge loss if Philhealth will be abolished. It is especially needed in this time of pandemic],” he said.President Duterte is eyeing to abolish or privatize the state health insurer amid the corruption allegations hounding the agency, said Senate President Vicente Sotto III on Thursday, September 17.Several officials of PhilHealth will face criminal and administrative charges, including its former president Ricardo Morales, as recommended by the Department of Justice.Duterte appointed former National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) Director Dante Gierran as the new chief of PhilHealth. Early this month, Gierran expressed optimism that he would be able to address the alleged irregularities surrounding the agency.Employees of PhilHealth will be supporting the leadership of Gierran, said Balena.“Hundred percent na suporta at kooperasyon ang amin pong ibibigay kay President and CEO Dante Gierran. Alam nyo, kahit sino naman po ang umuupo at nagiging leader dito sa PhilHealth ay lagi naman po na iyon ang aming ibinibigay–isang daan porsyento na suporta at kooperasyon sa anumang mga reporma na kanila pong ipapatupad sa PhilHealth [We will give 100 percent support and cooperation to President and CEO Dante Gierran. You know, whoever sits and becomes a leader here at PhilHealth, that is what we always give — 100 percent support and cooperation in any reforms that they will implement in PhilHealth],” said Balena.last_img read more

Error Code: VIDEO_CLOUD_ERR_VIDEO_NOT_FOUND LEXINGTON, Ky. – If the 2014 loss to Louisville was something of a coming-out party for Stanley “Boom” Williams, the 2015 loss was a symbol of what might have been in his sophomore season.Kentucky's Stanley "Boom" Williams leaves the field in pain in the first half. Nov. 28, 2015Kentucky’s Stanley “Boom” Williams leaves the field in pain in the first half. Nov. 28, 2015Williams totaled 37 yards and one touchdown on seven carries before being forced out of the game with a right elbow injury on the final play of the first quarter. Williams initially injured the elbow against Tennessee on Oct. 31, but missed just one game before returning to the field against Vanderbilt sporting a brace on the elbow.Against Louisville, Kentucky jumped out to a 21-0 lead with Williams in the game and scored just three points after his injury.UK haunted by missed chances to bury U of L“We struggled the three games he didn’t play this year,” UK offensive coordinator Shannon Dawson said. “We’re definitely a different team without him out there.”For the second consecutive season Williams led Kentucky in rushing with 855 yards and six touchdowns on 121 carries. He led the Wildcats in rushing as a freshman with 486 yards and five touchdowns on 74 carries, posting his best performance of the season with 126 yards and two touchdowns in the 2014 season finale against Louisville.As a sophomore, Williams topped the 100-yard plateau five times in 10 games but likely would have become Kentucky’s first 1,000-yard rusher since 2007 if he hadn’t missed two full games and more than one half of two other contests due to the elbow injury and a “personal issue” early in the season.“When you see one of your best players go down it’s a hard thing,” redshirt freshman quarterback Drew Barker said. “Yeah, it was pretty tough.”Dawson had no update on Williams’ injury after the game, but with Kentucky finishing its season at 5-7 he likely has until spring practice to recover.Video | UK’s Mark Stoops post-Louisville press conferencePlay VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration Time 0:00Loaded: 0%0:00Progress: 0%0:00 Progress: 0%Stream TypeLIVERemaining Time -0:00 Playback Rate1ChaptersChaptersdescriptions off, selectedDescriptionssubtitles off, selectedSubtitlescaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedCaptionsAudio TrackFullscreenThis is a modal window.

“Truly Inspirational” Irish Para-Equestrian Dressage Team make 2019 debut in Doha

first_img Tags: “Truly Inspirational” Irish Para-Equestrian Dressage Team make 2019 debut in Doha This week Al Shaqab arena in Doha plays host to one of the most prestigious events on the international equestrian calendar – the 2019 CHI Al Shaqab, one of only five CHI events in the world.CHI Al Shaqab 2019 will feature three Olympic equestrian disciplines – show jumping, dressage and para-equestrian dressage – over a period of three days. Ireland will be represented in Para-Equestrian Dressage by the team of:Rosemary Gaffney with Bink – owned by Susan Smallman and Crea EnglishKate Kerr-Horan with Serafina T – owned by Broomfield FarmMichael Murphy with Rohan – owned by Sue MurphyTamsin Addison with Fahrenheit – owned by Tamsin AddisonCHI Al Shaqab will be the Irish Para-Equestrian Dressage team’s first international event of 2019 and their first qualifying event for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics. The Netherlands, Great Britain and Germany are the only teams qualified for Tokyo as they were the top three-ranked teams at the 2018 FEI World Equestrian Games respectively.There are seven qualification places remaining and these places will be awarded to the seven highest-ranked teams on the FEI Paralympic Team Ranking List (not otherwise qualified and not including the host country) as of 31st January 2020. A team’s ranking is based on each team’s best team results from two qualifying events added together.Over the course of the three-day competition at Al Shaqab, Team Ireland will complete an individual and team test and the scores of the three highest placed Irish athletes, determined by their percentage scores in the individual test and the team test combined, will be totalled to determine the team’s final placing.Irish Chef d’Equipe Dara Kearney admits that this will be a big test for the Irish riders and their horses but explains why it was important that Ireland fielded a team for the CHI Al Shaqab in Doha: “It has been a daunting task preparing to compete at this event. None of our horses have flown before, this is huge for us, but this event is an important part of our preparation for Tokyo, should we qualify – the horses, the riders and their support teams will all have had the experience and it will be a less daunting task when Tokyo comes around.“Each of the four combinations are in good shape, they have all been out competing early in the season. The riders have been very focused in their preparations for this event and have been working hard to keep themselves fit, as well as their horses. This is a very exciting opportunity for them all and I’d like to sincerely thank Horse Sport Ireland for their support in the lead up to the event. This journey would not have been possible without their support. My hope now is that we can come back with a decent result.”Two of Ireland’s team horses, Michael Murphy’s Rohan and Tamsin Addison’s Fahrenheit, are based in the UK, while Rosemary Gaffney’s Bink and Kate Kerr-Horan’s Serafina T are based in Ireland. On Wednesday last the Irish-based horses travelled to Tamsin Addison’s yard in the UK and on Friday all four of the Irish team horses boarded a lorry to Liège Airport in Belgium where they then flew direct to Doha. We are delighted to report that all the Irish horses arrived safely in Doha.Irish Team rider, Rosemary Gaffney was always confident that her horse Bink would travel well and was just looking forward to being re-united with him in Doha: “It’s just super to have the opportunity to ride in Doha, there’s great pride in competing on one of the biggest stages in the world. I know there is going to be a big atmosphere there, but Bink and I have done everything we can to prepare. This will be Bink’s first time to fly but he is a very quiet traveller so I’m not worried, I’m just looking forward to riding down that centre line. I have been the reserve rider at two Olympics so I’m going to Doha all guns blazing.”Irish team Trainer, Donie McNamara confirms that the riders and their horses are up for the challenge and are looking forward to the competition: “They are all very positive, this is the start of a new year and our first international competition of the year, we plan to do several others and ultimately the goal is to qualify a team for Tokyo. When we arrive in Doha, we will familiarise the horses with the arena and it’s all systems go after that. We are up for the challenge.”Horse Sport Ireland CEO, Ronan Murphy acknowledged the team’s hard work and dedication leading up to this event: “We wish our High-Performance Para-Equestrian Dressage Team every success in Doha this week. Strategically, this event provides an opportunity for Team Ireland to compete at a world class event while also experiencing the logistics involved in flying the horses and acclimatising to the warm conditions. The team have worked very hard, sourced new horses and their commitment to the High-Performance Programme and ultimately qualification for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games is truly inspirational.”The Irish Para-Equestrian Dressage Team will have their trot-up today (Wednesday) and will get their campaign officially underway on Thursday.

Andie MacDowell talks “Love After Love” and 60th birthday plans

first_imgRoy Rochlin/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Andie MacDowell is turning 60 next month and she wants to make sure everyone knows one thing: “Mature women are interesting.”She proves that both in life, and in her latest role as a grieving widow in Love After Love. MacDowell portrays a woman at a stage in her life that’s not often seen on screen.“I mean, it’s a different time than in your 30’s or even in your 40’s, but it doesn’t mean that we are lacking in any way,” she says of older women. “I think maybe, perhaps in a lot of ways, we’re even richer in character.”Her character, Suzanne, deals with moving on after the loss of her husband, as well as her complex relationships with her two adult sons, played by Chris O’Dowd and James Adomian.MacDowell says for her role, she drew on some real-life experiences with her own grown children, son Justin and actress daughters Rainey and Margaret.“I don’t have that kind of dysfunctional relationship with my kids,” she says. “But I do understand the complexity of wanting to be in your kids’ business. I think all parents do that and feeling like you want to help them out when you should really just keep your mouth shut.”When it comes to celebrating her milestone birthday this year, MacDowell says she’ll be working on the actual day, April 21, but she does have some big plans in the works.“I want to do something significant this year,” she says. “I’m going to allow myself to celebrate this birthday all year ’round, not just on a day. It’s a big one so I really wanna go to India — I’ve gotta figure that out — or the other idea is to go live in Paris for a month.” Love After Love is out now in select New York theaters and on demand.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

The ‘Downton Abbey’ castle is an AirBnB for one night only

first_imgJaap Buitendijk / © 2019 Focus Features, LLC(HIGHCLERE, UK) — For one night only, some lucky Downton Abbey fans will have a chance to experience what it’s like to live in Highclere Castle, the real-life mansion used in the PBS series to stand in for the Crawleys’ home.Airbnb is offering a night in the property for the evening of November 26, and will start accepting reservation requests on October 1. However, securing a spot won’t be easy. The listing stipulates that visitors “must have a verified Airbnb profile, positive reviews, and be passionate about Downton Abbey.”More information is available on Airbnb.According to the listing, if you’re lucky enough to get a room, you’ll will be greeted by the castle’s owners, Lord and Lady Carnarvo. After settling into your rooms, you’ll join the two for cocktails in the Saloon, followed by a traditional dinner in the State Dining Room. Next, you’ll enjoy coffee in the library, before retiring to one of the Gallery bedrooms, which includes an en-suite bathroom and views over 1,000 acres of rolling parkland.After a good night’s rest, you’ll be served breakfast, followed by a tour of the castle grounds, during which Lord and Lady Carnarvon will share fun facts about the castle’s history.The best part is that it won’t cost you a king’s ransom: The whole package is $159 — less than the price of one of Lady Mary’s earrings.Downton Abbey aired between 2011 and 2016 on PBS. The highly anticipated movie based on the series, which features all of the original cast members, hits theaters on Friday.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more
