GLDA acquiring barge to aid cattle farmers

January 17, 2020 | By admin | No Comments | Filed in: zuwcxmlkn.

first_imgCattle farmers along the Berbice River and in the intermediate savannahs are to benefit from the acquisition of a cattle barge to be procured by the Guyana Livestock Development Authority (GLDA).According to Deputy Chief Executive Officer (DCEO) of the GLDA, Dr Dwight Walrond, the barge for which tenders are currently being invited, will bring relief to the livestock authority and private livestock farmers alike.“When you look at the cost to transport one animal to the station or from the station to the road, I think this barge would assist us greatly (and) the farmers in the Berbice River and the intermediate savannahs, those livestock farmers to be specific,” Waldron said.The acquisition of the barge, which is being tendered for currently, is part of the GLDA’s budgeted $50 million capital programme for the current year. The DCEO told the Government Information Agency (GINA) that “This is in keeping with the revamping of the Ebini Research Station which begun last year.”As part of the GLDA’s efforts to revamp the Ebini Research Station, major works started last year with the guest houses being rehabilitated. Other works are also being done “We are focusing on pasture and other capital works and corrals for the pens for the cattle areas,” Waldrond said.The capital works include the acquisition of a bus equipped to aid in the Livestock Development Authority’s extension services to farmers.“Farmers would have complained in the past, and even with our own internal evaluation we realised the quality of service we were putting out there to farmers as extension is not one we were proud of. As such, we made a pitch to have a bus that is equipped fully to assist us with our extension. This bus is equipped with a projector, DVD player and generator so we can be out there with the farmers, use the farmer field school method and actually show (video) clips of what other farmers are doing whether within Guyana or in other countries,” Walrond explained.Walrond added that “Another one of the capital projects is the construction of a quarantine outpost. We have to strengthen our surveillance system so that will help us monitor animals and animal products moving in and out of Guyana.”The Authority has benefited from collaboration with the Pan-American Health Organisation, the Food and Agriculture Organisation and Inter-American Institute for Cooperation on Agriculture for training and facilitating certain processes.last_img read more

Argentina sets up enticing Copa semi against Brazil

January 6, 2020 | By admin | No Comments | Filed in: zuwcxmlkn.

first_imgIt was another improved performance from Lionel Scaloni’s team who have grown into this tournament since beginning with a 2-0 defeat to Colombia and a 1-1 draw with Paraguay.They are bidding to end a 26-year wait for a major international trophy.“We’re Argentina and when there are knock-out matches, it makes us strong,” said Sergio Aguero, who had a hand in both goals.“It won’t be easy in any way (against Brazil) but we’re Argentina and we’ll try to do justice to the jersey.”– Fast start –Argentina started like a team determined to claim the prize at stake: a semi-final against their great rivals Brazil.Martinez played in Aguero in the inside right channel after just three minutes but the Manchester City forward’s low cross-shot was blocked by goalkeeper Farinez’s foot.Argentina should have gone in front when German Pezzella ran unmarked onto a flick-on at the back post but he seemed surprised and couldn’t react in time with the goal gaping.There was constant pressure on the Venezuelan backline as Argentina won a succession of corners.They had 80 percent of possession in the first 10 minutes and sure enough, Venezuela cracked.Aguero’s angled shot was heading well off target as it skidded into a crowd of players, but Martinez instinctively flicked it between his legs, nutmegging an unsighted Farinez.It was the least Argentina deserved after such a furious start but gradually Venezuela started to settle and get a foothold in the match.“We struggled to get a foothold in the match and by the time we got going, we were already behind and facing an uphill battle,” complained Venezuela coach Rafael Dudamel.“Undoubtedly when looking back (on the tournament) we’ll have a lot more positives than negatives,” he added.Chances were few and far between but Pezzella got up well to meet a Lionel Messi free-kick, only to head well over the top.Defenders were proving the most dangerous players on the pitch and Jhon Chancellor rose highest to head over from a corner at the other end.In first half injury time, Martinez almost had a second put on a plate for him by Marcus Acuna, but Roberto Rosales whisked it off his toe at the back post, four yards from goal as Argentina finished the half with another burst of attacking intent.– Farinez blunder –Argentina made another fast start to the second half with Farinez having to punch away a wicked inswinging free-kick from Leandro Paredes, whose slide-rule pass then sent Martinez scampering into the box only to lash his shot against the outside of the post.Aguero bundled through a number of flimsy challenges but overran the ball and Farinez gathered.In Darwin Machis, Venezuela had a left winger with the beating of his marker Juan Foyth but the ‘Vinotinto’ (‘Red wine’) were unable to get him into the game.And when they did, Foyth twice got away with robust challenges on the speedy forward inside the box.The chance Venezuela had been waiting for came on 71 minutes when Tomas Rincon picked out Ronald Hernandez eight yards from goal at an angle, but he rushed his pushed volley and goalkeeper Franco Armani made a smart save.The game was up three minutes later when Farinez spilled a shot from Aguero that was straight at him, presenting Lo Celso, who had cleverly followed the action from midfield, with a simple tap-in just six minutes after entering the fray.Even as Venezuela pushed desperately looking for something, Argentina came closer to scoring again a couple of times through substitute Angel Di Maria, earning his 100th cap.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Lautaro Martinez celebrates scoring the opening goal that set Argentina on their way to a quarter-final victory over Venezuela © AFP / Carl DE SOUZARIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil, Jun 28 – Argentina set up a mouth-watering Copa America semi-final against hosts Brazil as goals from Lautaro Martinez and Giovani Lo Celso secured a 2-0 quarter-final victory over Venezuela on Friday.Martinez gave Argentina a 10th minute lead with a clever back flick between his legs and substitute Lo Celso secured the victory 16 minutes from time, pouncing on a mistake by Venezuela’s goalkeeper Wuilker Farinez at Rio de Janeiro’s Maracana stadium.last_img read more

Everton confirm appointment of Marco Silva as their new manager

December 26, 2019 | By admin | No Comments | Filed in: zuwcxmlkn.

first_img Silva has penned a three-year deal with the Goodison Park club Marco Silva has been appointed Everton’s new manager, the Premier League club have confirmed.Silva has penned a three-year deal with the Merseyside club and succeeds Sam Allardyce, who was sacked by the Toffees following the end of the Premier League season.Everton’s new director of football Marcel Brands, hired earlier this month, is said to have been involved in the decision to hire Silva, while the club’s majority shareholder Farhad Moshiri has been keen on the Portuguese, 40, since last year.Moshiri originally wanted Silva to replace Ronaldo Koeman before the appointment of Allardyce, but Watford rejected an approach from the Goodison Park club for their recently-appointed head coach.A few weeks later Watford sacked Silva, but he is now back in the Premier League.“I’m really proud to be the new Everton manager,” Silva told the official club website. “I’m excited and I’m really happy to take this big challenge for us as a club and for me as a manager.“I want to express my thanks to Farhad, to the Chairman, to the Board of Directors and to Marcel as well for the confidence in my work. I know the huge history of Everton as a club and what the fans expect. I’m sure with everybody working together I will be ready for this challenge.“We have a lot of work to do in this next month and it is important to prepare everything in the right way. But there will be even more important work to do from the start of pre-season into the first Premier League match of next season.“I know what our fans expect – they expect results but not only results. I want our fans to be proud when they see our team on the pitch. I want them to feel that we are committed, that we are working hard and enjoying our football because that is important as well.“We want to build a great connection between the squad and the fans, and I’m sure that with our attitude and demands of commitment then our style of play will see that, I believe.“Everton is a really ambitious club and that is what I want. What we are seeing now are good changes at the Club. The Club is changing its approach. But one thing we cannot change and nobody wants to change is the huge history and ambition of the Club.“Everybody knows Everton’s history. When you are a club like Everton, you only have one solution – to aim to win. In football it is impossible to win every match but we must do everything to show in every game that we have ambition. That is what I want and I’m sure we will show that every single week.”Major shareholder Farhad Moshiri said: “I am really pleased to extend a warm Everton welcome to our new manager, Marco Silva. As Marcel has pointed out, Marco is a young, dynamic, energetic and very modern manager whose dedication to his job and demanding approach will help us, I believe, to move forward in a confident, purposeful way to where we want to be as a Club. His abilities are underpinned by a strong footballing philosophy, a fierce work ethic and his enthusiasm in embracing Everton, our values and our ambitions has hugely impressed me, as I hope it will each and every Evertonian.”Chairman Bill Kenwright said: “It is a pleasure to welcome Marco Silva as our new manager. As the posters outside Goodison have proclaimed for many years, DNA is important to Everton and Evertonians. It’s what they instinctively search out… In Marco and Marcel we welcome a pair of sportsmen whose statements of intent have already shown that they embrace that special quality that Evertonians look for… and with Farhad’s vigorous patronage we are looking forward to the three M’s, Marco Marcel and Moshiri, help take the Blues back to their rightful position among football’s elite.” 1last_img read more

Liverpool once beat Real Madrid to coveted LaLiga pass master

December 26, 2019 | By admin | No Comments | Filed in: zuwcxmlkn.

first_imgAnd that was it. The band broke up, with Sissoko already gone, Javier Mascherano followed Alonso to Spain a year later, leaving Gerrard to go solo.After five years at Real, Alonso made a surprise move to Bayern Munich in 2014 before calling it a day three years later.“One of the best midfielders I’ve ever seen in my life,” Pep Guardiola called him. And he’s seen a few. 4 “Woah, woah, woah. We’ve got the best midfield in the world. We’ve got Xabi Alonso, Momo Sissoko, Gerrard and Mascherano!”That was how Liverpool fans let opponents know the strength they had in midfield. Alonso won the Champions League in his first season at Liverpool At the heart of it was Alonso, the £10.5million arrival from Real Sociedad in 2004. Real Madrid had wanted him, but it was Liverpool he opted for and it took Steven Gerrard just 20 minutes of his first training session to see the sort of player manager Rafa Benitez had bought.“Top signing. Pure class, touch, vision, the creative works,” he thought to himself, not to mention tough. It was clear he would have no problem adapting to English football.The man could also score goals, too.His impact was immediate. Two months after his debut in August, Alonso had fans jumping for joy when he came on during a match against Fulham.The Reds were 2-0 down and hadn’t shown up until Alonso was introduced. He won the game for Liverpool and that’s not an exaggeration. His creativity, eagerness as well as his goal, helped the Reds take all three points in a 4-2 win. 4 Alonso also won the FA Cup during his time on Merseyside before leaving for Real Madrid in a £30m transfer in 2009.Kopites were devastated, but it would have happened sooner if Juventus and Arsenal had been willing to stump up £18m a year earlier.In 2008 Benitez wanted Gareth Barry, but needed funds to bring him to Anfield and Alonso’s sale was the way to do it. When word of the manager’s evil plan to sell their star player got out, fans used a pre-season friendly against Lazio to voice their dissent and directed a chant towards Benitez telling him where he could stick Barry.“I was ready to leave, because the manager wanted me to leave,” Alonso told Simon Hughes in the book, Ring of Fire. A move never materialised anyway.It was different a year later. “I went to Rafa: ‘OK, a year ago you wanted me to leave and I accepted it. Now I want to leave.’ In the end, there was an agreement but it was not easy because he wanted me to stay by that point.” Alonso was lauded for his passing center_img 4 It was a fantastic first season that ended with the ‘Miracle of Istanbul’ as the club beat Milan in the Champions League final. “Those European nights at Anfield were incredible,” he told liverpoolfc.com.“When I think of Xabi, my mind goes back to the first training session he had at Melwood in August 2004,” Jamie Carragher said in 2017 when his former team-mate announced he was retiring.“The same word always leaps out: wow! Rafa Benitez had talked him up before he arrived and immediately you understood.“It was the pace he put on a pass and the expert way he delivered a ball that showed him to be a top player. In one of his first games against Norwich, I had never seen a display of passing like it. You knew as a defender if you gave him the ball, it was in the safest hands.” 4 Alonso scored 19 times in 219 games for Liverpool Real Madrid paid Liverpool £30m for Alonso in 2009 Getty last_img read more
