Trophy Stall honours Foster, Haniff

first_imgTHE hard work, commitment and visionary leadership of two of Berbice outstanding cricket administrators were recognised by the popular Trophy Stall and its management. President Hilbert Foster and administrator Angela Haniff were presented with a plaque each for their remarkable achievements over the years. Trophy Stall’s managing director, Ramesh Sunich, stated that the contributions of the duo played major roles in the current status of Berbice cricket. Daniel Samaroo hands over Award to BCB Administrator Angela Haniff.Foster, who founded the Rose Hall Town Youth & Sports Club (RHTY&SC) in 1990, has served as Secretary/CEO for over 20 years and has spearheaded the transformation of the club into Guyana’s leading youth and sports organisation.Under his leadership, the RHTY&SC hosted over 700 activities per year, produced numerous cricketers for Berbice, Guyana and several for the West Indies. The club is also the one in Guyana to have a female team, and in 2004, 2005, 2009, 2010 and 2016 won the GCB Club-of-the-Year Award. It is also the only youth and sports club in Guyana’s history to have ever received a National Award.Foster also spearheaded the restoration of the Lower Corentyne Secondary School in 1990-1992, the Area ‘H’ Ground in 1996 at the cost of $20M and the construction of the Hugh Desmond Hoyte Memorial Playfield in 2017. The energetic Foster has also single-handedly raised over $35M in cash and kind for the BCB, firstly as Chairman of the Special Events Committee under the presidency of his elder brother Keith from 2008 to 2014 and as president of the BCB from February 2018 to present.Foster in 2011 received the National Sports Personality Award from the National Sports Commission and the Medal of Service from the Government of Guyana earlier this year.Haniff currently serves as the administrator of the BCB and is one of the main advisers to Foster. Haniff in the early 1990s joined the BCB under the presidency of the late president Leslie Amsterdam, AA.She became the first female in Guyana’s cricket history to hold an executive position when she was elected assistant secretary to the veteran Carl Moore. Under the presidency of Keith Foster, she was elected as secretary and over the years has served on several BCB sub-committees. Both Foster and Haniff expressed gratitude to Sunich and Trophy Stall.last_img read more

first_imgSundowns coach Pitso Mosimane said he was proud of his team and called the match a “great learning experience” for him and the players.“I am so happy with my boys because they always tried to play football the way I want them to — building from the back.“We did make crucial defensive errors, but I took a lot of positives from this match, including our passing and how we dispossessed Barcelona at times.”Share on: WhatsApp Pages: 1 2 South Africans thronged to Soccer City stadium on a cold night to see world superstar Lionel Messi and their wishes were granted when he came off the bench on 74 minutes.His every touch drew huge applause and Sundowns defender Wayne Arendse was beaming after the final whistle having exchanged shirts with the Argentine maestro.“I liked this Sundowns team very much — they displayed a lot of creativity and energy,” said Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde.

Inside Conditions…‘The Lost Boys’

first_imgThere was a macabre film conjured up by the cinema madmen from Hollywood in1987 titled ‘The Lost Boys’. The production narrative from IMBd.com says this about the movie. “A mother and her two sons move to a small coast town in California.The town is plagued by bikers and some mysterious deaths. The younger boy makes friends with two other boys who claim to be vampire hunters while the older boy is drawn into the gang of bikers by a beautiful girl. The older boy starts sleeping days and staying out all night while the younger boy starts getting into trouble because of his friends’ obsession.”We hear about the unfortunate murder of Trayvon Martin, the young Black man who was allegedly slain while in route to his father’s house in Sanford, Fla. just because he aroused the suspicions of one of the areas “hired thugs.” I, like most of America am outraged by this murderous turn of events. However, I am far more incensed by events happening much closer to the confluence of the Allegheny, Monogahela and Ohio rivers.On Jan. 30, Khiry Templin Watts, a standout and gifted young Black man who seemed as if he had just found the compass to assist him along the road to becoming a standout human being lost his life, not to one of the many George Zimmerman’s that may or may not be lying and waiting. Mr. Watts met his demise by committing suicide. According to a November 2008 article by Mike White of the Post-Gazette, Watts explained that, “My life was terrible.” Then the Templins (his adopted family who happened to be Caucasian) helped turn it around. “They brought me into their house and taught me a lot,” Watts said. “They taught me about family.” White observed that, “For Khiry Watts, it doesn’t get much better. He is having an unforgettable football season—and he has a family to enjoy it with him. Watts is a senior running back at Avonworth High School and one of the main reasons the Antelopes are 11-0.” But family by proxy just wasn’t enough for this young and troubled Black mind.What happened to Khiry Templin Watts between November of 2008 and Jan. 30? In approximately three years and two months his life did not slowly evolve; apparently it slowly dissolved. Most of us cannot be appointed a family; we have to be anointed with a family. The composition of a strong family unit may often be just as dependent on the genesis of genetics as it is on a generic environment. Just like in the sports world if you are traded to another team the “synergetic” process perhaps may be more complex depending upon the individual dynamics and compatibility of your individual teammates.Ms. Daren A. Ellerbee, outreach coordinator, CASA of Allegheny County had this to say in regards to the loss of this “reclaimed” young man with such a bright future. “Here at the CASA office we were of course saddened having lost one of our precious children. However, overall I have the feeling that he was a good kid. Many of our CASA children experience a lot of adversity but he [Khiry Watts] was trying to make the best of his circumstances.”A mother and her two sons move to a small coast town in California.When will African-American men stop just stepping up to the plate and begin to send a few balls sailing over the centerfield wall. We need far more than men just stepping up to the plate. A few boys must begin to hit the covers off the ball.The town is plagued by bikers and some mysterious deaths.There are many more “bikers” that are vigilantes that plague our system in the high school and college classrooms and locker rooms all across the country. George Zimmerman is not just a blip on the radar screen; the George Zimmermans of America are the radar screen. The perpetrators of these modern day vigilante acts are far more common than society would have any of us believe. There are many Zimmerman-like officials and teachers that are policing athletics and classrooms in a biased, slanted and heinous way. Cs are given to students who deserve As. Certain athletes are forced to ride the bench because of blatant nepotism, cronyism and any other “ism’s” and “schism’s” that may be illegitimately applied.Black America is sickening me with this fake a—outrage, we shall overcome singing b.s. complete with balloon filled marches and vigils.As has been proven the real vigils are being kept in the dark by those waiting to strike people of color like silent cobras with a numbing venom that the victim will never feel entering the stream of his or her consciousness.Let me see, UConn was just penalized for a miserable graduation rate for their men’s basketball team. Oh yeah, why you ask? Don’t matter the school got the loot. The athlete does not have to perform in the classroom only in the athletic arena.But ya know what? I saved the worst for last. In the years dating 2008-2010 there were more children in Chicago killed by Black on Black violence than soldiers that fought in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars combined.Don’t lecture me about no freakin’ George Zimmerman. Next time you see a young African-American at the plate and strike three is called and you know that it was a ball, think G.Z. When the ref calls a young Black receiver out of bounds when the replay clearly shows that he was in hey my man; G.ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ will set you free.(Aubrey Bruce can be reached at [email protected] or 412-583-6741.)last_img read more

The Hustler’s Playbook: Hustlers Are Ambitious

first_imgIf there is one thing that separates the hustler from the non-hustler, it’s ambition.The hustler is dead set on achieving something, usually something big. The hustler has a fire in their belly. They want what they want badly enough that no one ever needs to motivate them to take action, to work hard, or to do more than anyone else. Their ambition drives them.The non-hustler wants a lot of the same things the hustler wants. They want to be more, do more, and have more. Wanting things and a willingness to do the things necessary to have what you want are two very different things. The non-hustler is missing ambition. They don’t have the fire burning deep inside them, even though the tinder is there just waiting for a spark. Without the spark, they never catch fire.The hustler’s ambition is made up in part of the vision they have of themselves. They can already visualize their future self, and it’s a better version of what they are now. They can feel exactly what it’s going to be like. The hustler believes and behaves as if they are already that future version of themselves. Their ambition helps them to make that vision a reality.The non-hustler can’t see a better future self. They just don’t see it, even though it is there should they ever be struck with ambition. Most of the time the lack of vision also comes with a scarcity mindset, and that mindset is what keeps them from ever catching fire.When you ask a hustler where she wants to be in five years, she can not only tell you, but she can tell you her plan for getting there in 30 months. The non-hustler hasn’t even considered where they want to be in five years; they wait for the world to work on them, and they drift along wherever it takes them, never pushing back, never swimming hard against the current.What is it what you want badly enough that you can’t wait to work on it the minute your feet hit the floor in the morning? Do that. Essential Reading!
