#JaVotes2016: Warmington calls soldier an ‘A**hol*’

first_img The incident occurred after the soldier tried to inform the candidate that he had to go inside the polling station alone, which angered him. Warmington’s angry tirade was met with cheers from a number of persons wearing shirts with his photo and name attached. The JLP candidate had gone to the venue to express his discontent about clerks working at polling divisions 20 and 40 inside the venue. He said they were slowing down the process and that he had already complained to Director of Elections Orrette Fisher.  “It means that when the process concludes, they must be allowed to vote,” Warmington said. Meanwhile, persons commended a policeman, who helped to tone down the irate candidate. Warmington was later seen telling persons to obey the police and that he only respected the police command. Meanwhile, both the JLP and the People’s National Party (PNP) contenders were seen throughout the constituency with scores of persons in their respective party colours parading in vehicles. Jamaica Labour Party (JLP) candidate for South West St Catherine Clifford Everald Warmington caused quite a stir, after he called a member of the Jamaica Defence Force an a**hol*. The incident occurred about 11:40 am at the entrance of the Old Harbour Primary School, St Catherine. It was an angry Warmington who shouted, “You have no authority to order me! Let the police address me! You are an a**hol*! Don’t say nothing!”last_img read more

Credit: Lantern File PhotoThe Ohio State women’s soccer team defeated No. 16 Virginia Tech, 2-1 on Thursday in Blacksburg, Virginia. The Hokies suffered their first loss of the season, and the Buckeyes improved their perfect season to 5-0-0.For much of the first half, neither team converted on shot attempts, but after 33 minutes, senior forward Lindsay Agnew received a cross-field assist from junior midfielder Nikki Walts and scored the first goal of the game, putting OSU ahead 1-0 through one half. It was Agnew’s third goal this season, making her the highest scoring Buckeye thus far.In the 58th-minute senior defender Morgan Wolcott managed to send the ball to the back of the net for a 2-0 advantage, padding OSU’s lead over the Hokies.The Hokies quickly cut the Buckeyes’ lead in half just six minutes later with a goal from senior forward Murielle Tiernan. For the final 26 minutes, the Buckeyes played an aggressive defense backed by senior goalkeeper Jillian McVicker, who made seven saves during the game propelling OSU to a top-25 victory.

Block O tattoo signified early commitment from Buckeyes new quarterback Braxton Miller

Discussing when in the recruiting process he gets a sense a recruit will be joining Ohio State, co-defensive coordinator Luke Fickell said he’s not usually comfortable until he sees that player’s signed letter of intent. That wasn’t the case with Braxton Miller. When Miller, who is ranked as the No. 2 quarterback in his class according to multiple recruiting services, announced in June that he’d be joining OSU’s 2011 recruiting class, he left little doubt in his future coaches’ minds about his level of commitment, as he showcased an OSU Block “O” tattooed on his left shoulder. Though he announced his intentions months ago and has been taking classes for weeks as an early enrollee at OSU, Miller was officially introduced as a Buckeye on Wednesday at a ceremony introducing OSU’s 23-member recruiting class. Wearing his new No. 5 OSU jersey, along with a retro-style Buckeye hat, Miller said he’s still getting the hang of college life. “The first week was hard to adjust to,” he said, “but I’m cool now.” With OSU quarterback Terrelle Pryor suspended for the first five games of the upcoming season, OSU coaches say they are hopeful that Miller’s ability to adjust carries over to the football field. With the 15 extra practice sessions Miller has received from enrolling during Winter Quarter, he likely will compete with Joe Bauserman, Ken Guiton and Taylor Graham to fill the temporary void Pryor will leave. Miller said he’s excited for the opportunity to compete right away but that it’s too early to get caught up in the competition. “It’s just an opportunity,” he said. “Just got to get the job done, do the work and see who wins it out.” OSU quarterbacks coach Nick Siciliano agreed that it’s too early to see when, or if, Miller will contribute in the upcoming season, but he acknowledged that Miller’s decision to enroll early only improved his chances. “That’s all going be determined to how fast he adapts to what we do on an offensive standpoint — our play-calling, our formation setups and all those things,” Siciliano said. “Any time you’re here from any position, it gives you an advantage to play football a little bit more. I think that really is an advantage for a quarterback, to be able to get 15 extra days of snaps.” Like Pryor, Miller has displayed an ability both to throw and run the ball. In his senior season at Wayne High School in Huber Heights, Ohio, Miller passed for 2,167 yards and 17 touchdowns and ran for 658 yards and 17 touchdowns. Miller led his team to the Division I state title game. As a three-year starter at Wayne, Miller compiled a 31-7 record. Enrolling early gave Miller the opportunity not only to practice early with his new team but also to bond with Pryor, whom he’ll attempt to replace either this season or the next. “He’s a cool dude to hang out with,” Miller said of Pryor. “I figured I’d learn from the best.” read more

Blue Jackets fall to Stars 42

Blue Jackets’ interim coach Todd Richards said he was pleased with the way his team battled back in Thursday’s game against the Dallas Stars, but it wasn’t enough in the end. “The problem was, we weren’t ready from the start,” he said. The Blue Jackets got second period power-play goals from center Vinny Prospal and left-winger Rick Nash, but came up short, losing, 4-2, against the Stars, at Nationwide Arena. The Stars used left-winger Jamie Benn’s two-goal effort to hold on for the victory. Defensemen Stephane Robidas and Alex Goligoski added the other markers for the Stars. Curtis Sanford stopped 31 shots for the Blue Jackets as the team attempted to go on its first three-game winning-streak of the season. “We really wanted to get that third win in a row,” said left-winger R.J. Umberger. The scoring started just 1:35 into the game after Benn spun around in the slot and fired a shot that beat Sanford high to the glove side. Things didn’t get any easier for the Blue Jackets. Just less than three minutes later, Blue Jackets’ defenseman Marc Methot was on the receiving end of a puck to the face. Stars’ center Tomas Vincour fired a shot from the slot that, after striking Methot in the face, fell to the crease for a tap-in by Goligoski to put the Stars up, 2-0. “The first five minutes really killed us and put us in a big hole,” Umberger said. Methot did not return to the game after suffering a broken jaw, Richards said. “To get hit like that is fluky,” Richards said. Methot was not the only casualty of the game as right-winger Jared Boll left the game with a broken foot, Richards said. “It was a tough night body-wise, as far as injuries,” Richards said. After giving up an early power-play goal in the second period to the Stars, the Blue Jackets finally took some of the momentum back and responded with two power-play goals of their own. With Stars’ defenseman Sheldon Souray off for roughing later in the second period, defenseman Fedor Tyutin fired a low shot from the point that Prospal redirected into the net for the Blue Jackets’ first tally, at 8:32. Then at 12:12 during another Stars’ penalty, center Derick Brassard slid a cross-ice pass over to Nash who buried it for his 18th goal of the season. Richards called the play “textbook” and said it was what the team worked on in practice. Nash said the power play was “definitely positive” and the team could take that away from the game. The Blue Jackets added sustained pressure in the third, but were not able to find the back of the net again. “It was tough in the third,” Nash said. Benn added an empty-net goal with less than 10 seconds to go to seal the victory for the Stars. Nash, despite complimenting the Stars’ execution in the third period, felt it was still up to his team to tie the game. “It was good play by them, but we’ve got to find a way to get chances in the third,” Nash said. Nash was still optimistic about the team’s play. “We’re giving ourselves a chance to win and it seems like we’re following our system a lot better,” he said. Umberger agreed that the team just needs to persevere. “We gotta keep fighting, keep playing hard,” he said. The Blue Jackets travel to Minnesota Saturday to take on the Wild at 8 p.m. for the final time this season. read more

Thierry Henry is about to suffer a major setback vs PSG

first_imgWith the terrible season that he’s having right now, AS Monaco manager Thierry Henry will confront his biggest test yet against Neymar and Mbappé’s PSG.If you thought that Thierry Henry is having an unfortunate first experience as a professional manager, you are in for a big surprise because the AS Monaco boss is getting an even worse weekend in Ligue 1.In five matches that the Frenchman has managed after taking Leonardo Jardim’s place in the club, Thierry Henry has lost three and tied two of them with a total of four goals scored and 10 against.This start of the season was supposed to be prodigious for the Arsenal legend, but instead, he has found a club that is on the brink of relegation as they keep sinking on Ligue 1’s 19th position and don’t seem to be getting any better.Just this Friday evening, Henry himself lamented Kylian Mbappé’s departure as he is about to face the French youngster on Sunday when Paris Saint-Germain visits AS Monaco in Ligue 1.This match promises to be a real massacre for the rookie manager, it might even spark the beginning of the end for him and his technical staff as one of the most forgettable managerial debuts for any former player in football history.🎙 #ASMPSG pre-match press conference💬 @ThierryHenry”There’s always pressure, whether you’re at the top or the bottom. We know very well who’s coming on Sunday. We’re going to try to make it uncomfortable for them.” pic.twitter.com/aDduXZt4nh— AS Monaco EN (@AS_Monaco_EN) November 9, 2018There is really no way around next Sunday’s match, only a true miracle could give AS Monaco a victory against one of the most impressive clubs in European football today.PSG has a staggering 41 goals in only 12 matches, they have only allowed 7 goals and they have two of the best players in the world at their service.Youngster Kylian Mbappé left Henry’s club two seasons ago, he left a record-breaking €180 million for the club and has only grown exponentially as a player at PSG.In such little time, the teenager has managed to become an integral part for both his club and his country, but his biggest achievement has been France’s second World Cup trophy in history last summer.Mbappé was the biggest revelation of this tournament, he even scored a brace against Argentina in the round of 16 and also got his own goal in the final.PSG, Neymar, Ligue 1PSG ultras sent a warning letter to Neymar Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Brazilian superstar Neymar might play today his first game of the season for Paris Saint-Germain and the team’s ultras have warned him.This Sunday, the youngster comes back to the stadium where everything began and where he started to build the already impressive career that has taken him to inevitable comparisons with players like Neymar, Lionel Messi, and Cristiano Ronaldo.📷🔙🏋️‍♂️PSG get back to business at the Ooredoo Centre 💪 #ASMPSG🔴🔵 #AllezParis pic.twitter.com/DQNEAQrZP5— Paris Saint-Germain (@PSG_English) November 8, 2018Thierry Henry will most certainly dread every single moment in which the young player touches the ball next Sunday, he knows that his future at Monaco is hanging by a thread and he is obviously expecting that the French champions come with everything they got to win.We are still wondering why Thierry Henry believed that taking this job as the Monaco manager was a good idea, a club that is clearly decreasing its competitive gene in the last couple of seasons and has only worried about selling their most impressive players to the highest bidders on the European market.Thierry Henry should’ve given it a little more time to think things over, or maybe even demanded some great signings for the winter in order to at least save the season.AS Monaco is in a very tight spot right now, a painful defeat against Paris Saint-Germain is almost a certain thing at this point and the club’s board of directors would make a terrible mistake if they sacked Henry from his position so early during his spell.It’s sad to see this situation from a distance, because the Frenchman is a fan favorite and everybody was expecting him to succeed on his first experience as a manager.💬 “We must try to find the right path. We know what we need to focus on and we have to try to remain positive.” @ThierryHenry #ASMCLU pic.twitter.com/8cpqBMgzAy— AS Monaco EN (@AS_Monaco_EN) November 6, 2018What do you think about Thierry Henry’s unfortunate situation at AS Monaco?
