Champion pair to shine in Guineas

first_imgWAYNE DaCosta’s SHE’S A MANEATER and FEARLESS SAMURAI are favourites to hand the champion pair of trainer Wayne DaCosta and jockey Omar Walker a historic 1000-2000 Guineas double at Caymanas Park this afternoon. SHE’S A MANEATER, the 1000 Guineas favourite, is yet to be beaten by a filly in six starts, losing her only race to a colt – Anthony Nunes’ SOTOMAYOR in December’s Jamaica Two-Year-Old Stakes at a mile. She returned in last month’s seven-furlong Thornbird Stakes and closed strongly in the stretch run under Walker to win by a half-length, beating MONEY MAGNET and BILINGUAL, though encountering traffic problems with top weight 57.0 kilos down the backstretch. FEARLESS SAMURAI won the March 18 Prince Consort Stakes in convincing fashion, putting DaCosta on track to landing a historic Guineas double – a feat completed by only five trainers – Paul Newman (1980), Kenneth Mattis (1981), Billy Williams (1991), Philip Feanny (1992 and 1993), and Gary Subratie (2011). SHE’S A MANEATER is DaCosta’s lone starter in the 1000 Guineas in which her main rivals, MARLENE MY LOVE, MONEY MAGNET and BILINGUAL, are working well, but will have to defy the handicaps, weight swings ranging from five to eight pounds coming out of the Thornbird Stakes. BEST RACE OF CAREER Meanwhile, FEARLESS SAMURAI, a bold front runner, ran the best race of his career in the Prince Consort, repelling a determined effort from WESTERN WARRIOR to cruise home by three lengths with Walker aboard. FEARLESS SAMURAI is one of four runners in the event for DaCosta, setting up what should be a tactically great race, considering Nunes’ BALAZO got into the one-mile event from the also-eligible position of number 18 following the withdrawal of his injured stablemates, ICTUS and DONTAE. BALAZO returned off a near seven-month lay-up last Wednesday to win by almost 10 lengths at 1300 metres, blazing splits of 23.3, 34.4, 46.3, 58.3 and 1:12.3, ending in 1:20.2. Nunes’ second runner is SOTOMAYOR, who is yet to reproduce his winning Jamaica Two-Year-Old Stakes form in two races since. Speedy BALAZO, however, comes in with great credentials and is partnered by Robert Halledeen, who is fast becoming a go-to big-race jockey. DaCosta’s answer to BALAZO’s potentially disturbing speed appears to be LOOSE CANNON, whose stamina limitations were exposed at six furlongs in February’s Sir Howard Stakes when caught and beaten by DON CHASSIS. He returned to show that he’s a mean sprinter by clocking 1:05.4 at 1100 metres last month. FEARLESS SAMURAI showed in the Prince Consort that he was much improved. He rated well under pressure and will definitely get a mile from on or just about off the pace. It appears that the cheekpieces fitted that afternoon was what he had needed all along to settle down.last_img read more

Political Interest Stalls Support to Writers

first_imgLiberian Historian and Political Science instructor, Dr. Joseph Saye Guannu says the lack of support to Liberian writers is attributed to the narrow interests of the nation’s   political leaders.In a recent interview with the Daily Observer, Dr. Guannu,  whose History texts are widely used in Liberian schools across the country, said leaders of different regimes in the country had always wanted writers, especially those writing history, to “Dance to the tune of their music.”According to him, as writers  seek support, the powers that be would be interested only in writers’ outlining the  achievements the leaders.  These leaders are not interested in objective and unbiased writings, but only in  those that sing the leaders’ praises.   The result is that writers get little or no support from the national government.He said this is evidenced by writings some do whereby they give false information about people who did nothing good in the interest of the state but are nonetheless made to look good in the public eye.“We writers are not supported because government wants us to praise them for what they do not do,” Dr. Guannu stressed.“These politicians want us to join their political parties before they can support writers, and we who want to be objective cannot have the support since we refuse to go by what they say,” he continued.He said he had been able to publish his books through assistance from friends and because of his own passion to write.Dr. Joseph Saye Guannu has published History books including A Short History of the Liberian Republic, Liberian History Up To 1847, Liberian Civics and Liberian History Since 1980.Other supplementary papers include Perilous Problems of Liberian History, Inaugural Speeches of Liberian Presidents and Liberia & U.S.:  A special Relation.Dr. Joseph Say Guannu was born in Sanniquellie, Nimba County.  He began his education in St. Mary’s Catholic School along with late personalities including Edward Beyan Kesselley and Emmanuel Gbalazeh.When he entered 7th grade, Dr. Guannu left for Monrovia and he enrolled at St. Patrick High School where he graduated and later entered the University of Liberia.He won a scholarship and travelled to the United States where he attended the College of Great Falls in the state of Montana.  There he completed his Bachelor’s studies and later enrolled at the Fordham University in New York, where he earned his Master’s then Doctorate degrees.Upon earning his PhD, Dr. Joseph Saye Guannu chose to teach in Glassborough University in New Jersey.In Liberia, Dr. Guannu has  worked at the Foreign Service Institute, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ambassador to the United States, and Minister of State for Presidential Affairs.He currently teaches at the Cuttington University in Suakoko, Bong County and the University of Liberia Graduate School.  He is the director of Conflict Resolution & Peace at Cuttington.He has won awards including Who’s Who Award in the Education in America and Who’s Who Award in the World.Dr. Guannu’s success in his academic and professional sojourns has been driven by three factors including discipline, determination and sacrifice.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Effective management of oil revenues can transform lives and livelihoods – Dr Bynoe

first_imgDirector of the Department of Energy, Dr. Mark Bynoe, has said the sustainable development of Guyana’s recent hydrocarbon discoveries and the revenues which they will accrue have the potential to truly place the country on a sustainable development pathway.He also noted that this development is occurring at a particularly opportune time, when the country is pursuing development based on the principles enshrined in its Green State Development Strategy (GSDS).Dr. Bynoe made these statements at the University of Guyana’s ‘Turkeyen and Tain Talks 18’ event, titled “Energy for Guyana, Renewable Energy, Oil, Gas and Guyana’s Green Future”, which was hosted at the Pegasus Hotel as part of ‘Energy Week’ activities.Dr. Bynoe was among eight other panellists from a group including professors from local and international academia, among others relative to the energy sector, who made presentations to translate new concepts and foster further discussions on creating a productive, efficient, and sustainable energy sector in Guyana.In his discourse on the topic “Oil and Gas in a Green’ Guyana,” Dr. Bynoe said, “Energy is not an end in itself. It’s what it can be used for to transform the lives and livelihoods of all Guyanese going forward. Further, the GSDS is premised upon the effective management of the country’s natural resource wealth, inclusive of our hydrocarbons, supporting economic resilience and building human capital (in) Guyana.”He noted that pursuing oil and gas development does not necessarily run counter to the paradigms of the GSDS model.“It is not just about energy; it’s a development paradigm. How can we achieve these objectives in the face of Guyana’s expanding oil and gas reserve estimates? Firstly, while there continues to be substantial discussions around the utilisation of the oil revenues (as there should be), the hydrocarbon resource revenues are expected to be the catalyst for growth and funding of the GSDS, whether for example in pursuing cheap and reliable energy, including for value addition in other sectors…. We must be able to understand where the growth sectors are, and be able to target and put resources therein; and I can say, coming from my own background and what we’re already seeing in terms of the supporting structures to support the oil and gas industry, we’re already seeing an increasing demand for energy,” he said.Guyana Energy Agency’s Chief Executive Officer Dr. Mahender Sharma shared a similar view. In his presentation, titled “Guyana and Energy: A General Overview”, he said having oil and gas does not preclude Guyana from pursuing sustainable development.“I see the word ‘sustainable’ is absent from this title, but not because we have oil and gas (it) means [that] we cannot approach our energy sector development and our country’s development in a sustainable manner. We all know that we have lots of hydropower resources; we know that we get good sunshine. We’ve also learnt that the wind regime on the coast of Guyana is fairly good…and Government has been capitalising on much of this,” he said.Dr. Sharma recalled that Guyana’s hydropower potential, for example, was examined since around the 1970s, and “that is huge; it’s at the order of 7000 megawatts. Our peak demand is still about 115-118 megawatts… [or thereabouts], so we need to develop that…“The energy matrix of the future must bring in to consideration — must incorporate — what we have in Guyana, must incorporate gas, oil, if possible hydro power, solar and wind; and that diversity is what adds strength and provides us [with] the kind of energy security that we need,” he said.In this vein, Professor of Corporate Finance and Energy Investment at ITAM and CBMEX in Mexico, Jose Pablo Rinkenbach — who said his country has been producing oil for more than 100 years, and has, over the last 10 years, been creating a robust and sustainable energy sector — said there are five lessons that were learnt, which may prove valuable for Guyana at this stage of her development.“The first one has to be that you have to have an holistic approach. Don’t think just about oil and gas; think about energy, because otherwise you risk having Dutch disease…of putting all the resources into oil and gas. Having energy and energy focus will help you in order to have a right, balanced energy matrix…” he said.Having a robust regulatory framework, embracing transparency, focusing on national development, and managing information are also important, he added.This event was hosted as part of the University’s roster of activities for its “Energy Week” observance.last_img read more

Spring home tour to feature ‘Pasadena’s Golden Age’

first_imgTwo San Marino homes on Shenandoah Road will also be open, the H. Palmer Sabin House, a Spanish Colonial Revival designed by the architect for his own family; and the Edward W. Goodman House, a Tudor Revival designed in 1929 by John D. Atchison, with a two-story living room that features carved gargoyles on exposed wood beams and leaded-glass windows. The houses have been well researched and Pasadena Heritage docents can provide the history of each house, back to the original owners, Mossman said. Visitors drive themselves to each of the houses, with docent-led tours running between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m., and should allow about five hours to see all the homes. Tickets are $35 in advance, $40 on the day, available at Pasadena Heritage, 651 S. St. John Ave. For more information, call (626) 441-6333 or go to pasadenaheritage.org janette.williams@sgvn.com (626) 578-6300, Ext. 4482 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! PASADENA – The city’s architecture is synonymous with Craftsman style in many minds, but there was a glitzier, later era in the 1920s and ’30s that left a legacy of mansions in the grand manner. Seven of the most opulent from “Pasadena’s Golden Age” will be open to the public Sunday as part of the 30th anniversary spring home tour staged by Pasadena Heritage. “These are magnificent homes on the grand scale,” said Sue Mossman, the preservation group’s executive director. Wealthy transplants from the East and Midwest arrived in a city that was – or thought of itself as – sophisticated, Mossman said; this at a time when Pasadena was home to a large number of notable architects who could cater to clients’ lavish tastes and ideas. The “exuberant” results of great wealth and great architectural talent in Pasadena include the E. Lawrence Brown House, a 1928 Spanish Colonial Revival by architect Harold J. Bissner, with original tile work and abstract Moorish wood motifs; the Harlow E. Bundy Mansion, a Classical Revival house with a domed art-glass entryway window, silk wall paneling and gilded carvings by a Hungarian church painter; the Myron Hunt-designed Amelia Seibert House, a three-story Tudor Revival with half-timbering and herringbone brick; and the Frank Bacon House, a 1928 Monterey Revival-style by Roland E. Coate. last_img read more

EMMET RUSHE’S FITNESS COLUMN: HOW TO LOSE WEIGHT AND KEEP IT OFF – PART TWO

first_imgBY EMMET RUSHE This is part two of ‘How to lose weight and keep it off – for good’While writing this it became apparent that this will be a 3 part article, which will finish next week. 

If you missed last week’s article, we covered Calories, Protein intake and your Fat intake.3: MANAGE YOUR CARBOHYDRATE INTAKE In the past 10 years, carbs have been seen as the enemy and the impression is that if you eat them, you will get fat.This couldn’t be further from the truth. 

Carbs in your diet are not a bad thing; the problem is with the eating habits we have acquired over the last 15 years.Diets high in processed foods have huge amounts of hidden carbs that are used for sweeteners. Look for High Fructose Corn Syrup HFC’s in the ingredients.Low fat foods have carbs added in to replace the fat that is taken out (low fat milk has more carbs per 100ml than protein). Highly processed foods can also have a high fat content which, along with the high carb content, can send your calorie limit through the roof.Managing your carb intake is easier than you might think.Cut out refined carbs by eliminating processed foods, high sugar drinks, white sugar and white flour products (pasta and breads).Fill your plate with more fibrous carbs through vegetables and limit your intake of starchy carbs (potatoes, rice).This simple step alone will accelerate your fat burning to new levels. If you are looking at this and thinking that I have removed everything that you currently eat, there are two points I must make.If you currently eat predominantly processed foods and cannot lose weight, you have to change your habits or you could end up with severe health problems. You will not lose weight eating like this.No one food is evil. 
You did not gain weight because of one single chocolate bar. 
If you eat a well-balanced diet 90% of the time, and you are not misreporting or lying to yourself, you can allow yourself a free meal each week where you can eat whatever you like and it won’t hinder your weight loss goals.Managing your carbohydrates is your key to fat loss and the body you have always wanted. You do not need to remove them permanently in order to achieve this. 4: LIFT MORE WEIGHTSWhether you like it or not, lifting weights has been proven time and time again to burn more fat, especially belly fat, than jogging or running.Why? It’s simple.As you build more muscle, (no you are not going to turn into a body builder, get over it, it won’t happen), you are increasing your body’s ability to burn calories even while resting.Say that again??The more muscle you have, the more calories your body will burn.Weight lifting is the only way you can achieve this and get a great body at the same time.In fact, a study on diet plus exercise found that;The weight training group lost 21.1 pounds of fat (44% and 35% more than the diet and aerobic exercise only groups respectively). 
Basically, the addition of aerobic training didn’t result in any real world significant fat loss over dieting alone.Want to know how to do this properly?Ask your gym instructor or contact me through the link below and I can write you up a program that will help you achieve the body you always wanted, faster than ever.For fat loss, you will start with full body training sessions and try to do this 3-4 time per week.As you progress, this can be split into an upper body session (twice per week) and a lower body session (twice per week).If you cannot get 4 session per week your upper-lower split can become a 3 day cycle which would be split up like this;Week 1 – Upper body – Lower body – Upper body.
Week 2 – Lower body – Upper body – Lower body.Again, for exercise selection and a structured training program, contact me through the link below.That’s it for this week, next week we will cover cardio and if it’s actually needed for fat loss.Any questions, contact me.
