Anti-Drug Summit in Peru to Bring Together 59 Countries

first_imgBy Dialogo June 22, 2012 An international anti-drug summit will take place in Peru on June 25 and 26 to bring together delegations from 59 countries to discuss the topic of reducing illegal drug use and the responsibility of producing and consuming countries. The summit will take place behind closed doors and will bring together “actors directly involved in anti-drug policy, such as ‘czars,’ ministers, and representatives of international organizations,” said Carmen Masías, Peru’s drug czar, without specifying the number of foreign ministers who will attend. Masías, who heads the Commission for Development and Life without Drugs (Devida), asserted that Peru will insist on putting forward the principle of shared responsibility between the countries that produce drugs and those that consume them. Known as the International Conference of Foreign Affairs Ministers and Heads of Specialized National Agencies against the World Drug Problem, the event will bring together delegations from every continent. “In order to fight against drugs, the producing and consuming countries should come up with clear strategies for the fight against narcotics trafficking,” said Masías, who also specified that there have to be resources, exchange of information, and cooperation among all nations. The event will be opened by President Ollanta Humala, who proposed a frontal assault on drug trafficking and a world anti-drug summit upon taking office on July 28, 2011.last_img read more

Sessegnon stars in Baggies win

first_img Sessegnon, who joined the Baggies in an acrimonious deadline day move from Wearside earlier this month, struck after 20 minutes as Sunderland lost at The Hawthorns to remain bottom of the Barclays Premier League. Liam Ridgewell secured victory with a second goal 14 minutes from time before another impressive new signing in Morgan Amalfitano added a third in injury time. Press Association It proved a dismal afternoon for the Black Cats, who only had 10 men for the closing 15 minutes after Steven Fletcher was forced off injured with all substitutes having been used. The result is sure to pile the pressure on Sunderland manager Di Canio, who made the controversial decision to sell the popular Sessegnon. There was clear irritation among the visiting fans after the final whistle was blown but Di Canio approached them to applaud and gesticulated they should keep their chins up. Yet while his side have just one point, opposite number Steve Clarke could breathe a sigh of relief after finally securing a first win. Sessegnon, whose debut had been delayed by red tape, did the business for him in an impressive first appearance. His name was read out to loud cheers from both sets of supporters prior to the match and, perhaps inevitably, he needed little time to make his mark. He was in the right place to tuck home the opening goal after the hosts had broken down the right in the 20th minute. Amalfitano crossed for Scott Sinclair and his firm header was parried by Keiren Westwood in Sessegnon’s direction. Sessegnon could not pass up the invitation and turned the ball past his former team-mate but he pointedly refused to celebrate as his new colleagues rushed to congratulate him. Sunderland, who had previously looked good in possession but without a cutting edge, almost equalised immediately as Adam Johnson found himself unchallenged in the area but Jonas Olsson recovered to deflect his effort wide. In what became a lively spell, Marseille loanee Amalfitano cut inside from the right and unleashed a powerful shot which might have troubled Westwood but for a deflection diverting it onto the bar. West Brom were awarded a corner which fortunately for referee Phil Dowd came to nothing as replays suggested the deflection had come off a home player. Nicolas Anelka threatened as West Brom broke again down the right but Modibo Diakite got back to clear the veteran striker’s ball into the middle. Fabio Borini, making his first Sunderland start since signing on loan from Liverpool, looked lively but without service and he lost out to Baggies goalkeeper Boaz Myhill chasing a through-ball. The opening to the second half was subdued but the game was again enlivened by Sessegenon, who turned sharply on the left corner of the area only to blast high and wide. At the other end Craig Gardner found room to shoot from distance but could not keep his effort on target. Sunderland substitute Jozy Altidore wanted a penalty for handball in the 65th minute after cleverly shifting his balance to take a Charis Mavrias cross and get a shot in. Olsson flung his body in the way to block and Altidore claimed it had struck his hand but referee Phil Dowd was not interested. Chances started to come thick and fast and Anelka had a good headed chance deflected narrowly wide from a Billy Jones cross. Sunderland countered but luck was again against them as Fletcher not only volleyed narrowly over stretching to reach Johnson’s cross, but landed awkwardly on his shoulder. He received lengthy treatment but was unable to continue and, with all three substitutes having been used, Sunderland had to play on with 10 men. They were punished further moments later as Westwood failed to deal effectively with another Amalfitano cross, palming it into the path of the on-rushing Ridgewell, who finished clinically. Amalfitano wrapped up the scoring with a fine strike which rewarded his efforts after being picked out on the right by Victor Anichebe. Stephane Sessegnon hit back at Paolo Di Canio with a debut goal for West Brom to push former club Sunderland to another defeat as they were beaten 3-0.last_img read more

Friendlies: Buffon Equals Casillas Record, Spain Holds England

first_imgItaly goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon kept a clean sheet as he played 45 minutes against world champions Germany on his European record-equalling 167th cap.Buffon, 38, started the goalless draw in Milan to draw level with Spain keeper Iker Casillas’ tally.He produced several routine saves before AC Milan teenager Gianluigi Donnarumma came on at the break.Italy almost won the friendly in the final 10 minutes, but Andrea Belotti’s low shot came back off the post. In another game, Gareth Southgate’s four-game tenure as England’s interim manager ended in disappointment as Spain scored twice in the closing moments to snatch a draw in the Wembley friendly.England looked on course to further bolster Southgate’s claims to succeed Sam Allardyce as they impressed and took control through Adam Lallana’s early penalty, awarded when Spain keeper Pepe Reina hauled down Jamie Vardy.The Leicester City striker’s fine diving header from Jordan Henderson’s cross just after the break gave England a lead they did not look like relinquishing as the clock ticked down.Elsewhere, a much-changed France side were booed off the pitch after labouring to a 0-0 draw against Ivory Coast in Paris.“We struggled, that’s not what I want to remember from 2016,” said Deschamps, whose side reached the final of Euro 2016 as hosts.Russia, who will host the next World Cup in 2018, earned a late 1-0 friendly win against Romania as they played a historic international in Chechnya.It was the first international Russia had played in the region, which experienced two devastating wars in the 1990s when government forces battled Islamist insurgents.Substitute Magomed Ozdoev, who was born in the Chechen capital Grozny, scored the only goal three minutes into stoppage time.In other matches, Iceland won 2-0 in Malta, Sweden beat Hungary and Ukraine saw off Serbia by the same scoreline.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

Leafs secure Sean Dooley as assistant coach for upcoming KIJHL season

first_imgThe Nelson Leafs reached back into its roots to find an assistant coach for the upcoming season, naming Sean Dooley assistant for the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League season.Dooley, no stranger to the Leafs having served in the same capacity in 2010-11 with head coach Chris Shaw, joins returning head coach Frank Maida behind the bench as Nelson plays host to the 2014 Cyclone Taylor Cup. Dooley is a Nelson Minor Hockey grad who was drafted by the Prince Albert Raiders of the Western Hockey League. He served as an assistant coach to skipper Mario DiBella last season with the Kootenay Ice Major Midget club.He played for the Leafs as a 15-year-old rookie before graduating to three seasons of European Professional Hockey with Dundalk Bulls, winning two league titles.The Leafs gain an automatic bye into the Cyclone Taylor Cup set for April 2014.The four team tournament has representation from the three Junior B Leagues in B.C.  KIJHL, Pacific Coast and Vancouver Island Junior Leagues.last_img read more

No Ordinary Jo — Jordan Davie a key cog in Leafs wheel of fortune

first_imgOn the Island, the Cougars amassed a rich winning tradition Davie hopes he can bring to Nelson.“When I was in Victoria we did a lot of winning so I feel I can bring that winning attitude, leadership and that experience I have in hockey to this team,” said Davie, who played 83 games with the Cougars.“I’ve played long seasons, and gone into May with (Cougars). I’ve gone to two Cyclone Taylor Cups so I feel that experience helps especially with such a young team like ours.”It’s pretty obvious McLellan recruited young to continue the Leaf philosophy of giving the players the right skills to advance to the next level.So along with the seasoned coaching staff, it’s up to Davie to help groom those young players.“We have so many rookies and not a lot of them know about what the junior experience is like,” he said.“You can watch all you want but you don’t know about it until you play. And I think I can help out those guys.”Obviously, starting out winless after week one of the KIJHL schedule is not what anyone on the Leafs were looking to hang in the standings.However, due to a condensed training camp and exhibition season, Leaf players had little time to digest McLellan’s schemes.Now, after a week of practice, there are no excuses.“This week is going to be huge for us,” Davie exclaimed.“We’re going to work hard, we’re going to fix our power play . . . we’re going to teach the young guys how to play defence and how to fore check, so this is going to be a big week of practice for us.”Game time Friday is 7 p.m. against the Spokane Braves.ICE CHIPS: The Leafs travel to Grand Forks to meet the Border Bruins Sunday. . . . There promises to be a few more changes to the roster as Junior A team continue to shuffle their lineups. Nelson coaching staff has two to three players coming into camp this week. . . . Castlegar Rebels travel east to meet Columbia Valley and Golden while Murdoch leading Beaver Valley faces Grand Forks Friday before hosting Osoyoos Coyotes Saturday. At 5’11”, 195-pounds, Jordan (call me Jo) Davie moves through the NDCC neutral zone like a heat-seeking missile as he hounds opposition defenders for the puck.Acquired in a trade with Victoria Cougars of the Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League, the 20-year-old Davie looks to be a key cog to a Leafs team filled with young faces.And following an opening weekend where the Green and White lost two close games, Davie will be counted on to help right the ship sooner than later.“We’re not worried yet,” Davie told The Nelson Daily following Saturday’s 4-3 Kootenay International Junior Hockey League loss to Fernie Ghostriders.“It’s obviously frustrating because you never want to lose. But we have a long season ahead and it’s not the first two games that dictate the season it’s a long six-month season that defines a team.”Davie is no stranger to the Heritage City or a Leaf franchise rich in hockey tradition.The burley forward grew up watching Leafs teams as a member of Nelson Minor Hockey.“I played a couple of games as a 16-year-old and playing Victoria was a lot of fun, but there’s not many franchises like Nelson,” Davie said.“This is a great community here that’s basically home for me,” he added. “There’s an unreal coaching staff and an unreal fan base to play in front of.”Davie joined Nelson Minor Hockey at a young age, playing right through Bantam before heading to the Okanagan Hockey Academy as a 16-year-old.He then ended up in the Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League with Victoria Cougars where he played the past three seasons.last_img read more

I figured it would be kinda like winning the Kentucky Derby . . . That things would quiet down after a few days, but this is just getting bigger and bigger. We had helicopters following him from the airport and I thanked the guys with Arcadia P.D. It’s just tremendous and we’re so fortunate to have a great horse like this.”The Triple Crown winner’s countless fans and well-wishers will have an opportunity to see him in the flesh when American Pharoah makes a public appearance at Santa Anita on Gold Cup Day, a week from Saturday, June 27.“We want to thank American Pharoah’s owner, Ahmed Zayat, and his trainer, Bob Baffert, for being so incredibly generous in sharing this horse with fans from coast to coast,” said Santa Anita Chairman Keith Brackpool.“We’re excited to present him to the public on June 27.

Yamaguchi will begin his run starting with the Los Alamitos meet on July 2, while Ebanks and Stevens will officially pair up at the start of Del Mar on July 16.“Craig and I are great friends and we had a great run,” Stevens said. “He’s doing great with Tyler (Baze) and doing great with me, but I want to expand a little bit and want a little individuality. Ron became available and was ready to go back to work. We’ve always wanted to work together so we’re excited.“Craig and I are like family . . . It was one of the most difficult things I’ve ever done, but we’re excited to move forward.”Said Ebanks: “Gary and I have been friends for almost 28 years. We always had it in mind to get together but it never worked out. Timing is everything, however, and I’m looking forward to our future together.”Through 31 racing days at Santa Anita’s Spring Meet, Bejarano held a 39-28 lead over runner-up Baze and was tops in purse earnings with $1,832,842.

Goals galore as SA hockey women fire

first_img7 August 2012 Wow! Where did that come from? The previously winless South African women’s hockey team delivered a scintillating performance at the Riverbank Arena on Monday to thrash the USA 7-0 in a pool B clash at the London Olympic Games. “We are pleased. It was an excellent performance from the whole team, definitely our best performance of the tournament.” The domination was underlined by the total number of shots the teams had on goal. South Africa had 27, the USA just six. Penalty cornerThe South African penalty corner, which had not produced a goal in the tournament until then, proved to be very effective as the team netted four goals from 10 corners. The Americans forced five short corners without managing a goal. ‘A very good feeling’She added: “Today, the first goal made all the difference. Before this match we hadn’t scored any goals from the penalty corners. It was a good way to finish. It is a very good feeling to have won so well. Coetzee, the all-time leading goal scorer in women’s international hockey, is now just two goals shy of 250 in an outstanding career. Hurried and hassledThey hurried and hassled the Americans when they were in possession, quickly forcing a turnover of possession, or conceding a free hit to slow down the opposition’s attack. Olivier, a bronze medal winner at the World Junior Championships in 2008, contested the first round of the 800 metres on Monday. The top three finishers in each of the seven heats were guaranteed a place in the semi-finals, along with the next two fastest men. In their previous matches, the South African team had misfired to an extent, they had missed chances they might have taken on another day, some bad luck had befallen them, but against the USA everything clicked. South Africa, ranked 12th in the world, had gone into the contest needing to win by six goals to finish above the Americans, whose world ranking is sixth, in their pool. They went one better and delivered seven with a strong performance from first whistle to last.center_img “We struggled to find rhythm at the beginning of the week,” Bright said after the match. “Each game we have played better and finally we got it together today.” The tempo and intensity of the South African effort was impressive, especially so since it never flagged throughout the game. The ball movement was good and Marsha Marescia and company proved very effective down the flanks. Tarryn Bright, who played a commanding role in the midfield, struck twice, Pietie Coetzee added two goals from penalty corners, and Lesley-Ann George, Dirkie Chamberlain and Jen Wilson also got onto the scoreboard. Running in the final heat, Olivier ran with a plan in mind and finished third in 1:46.42 to secure his place in Tuesday’s semi-finals. There will be three semi-final races, with the top two from each race going through, as well as the two fastest men besides them. 800 metresSince 1996, South Africa has produced two medal winners in the 800 metres, with Hezekiel Sepeng claiming silver in Atlanta, and Mbulaeni Mulaudzi winning another silver in Athens. The country’s hopes in the event in London lie with Andre Olivier. The USA’s Katie Reinprecht commented: “South Africa came out super-aggressive. They really put us under the pump. I will give them credit. They were lethal on the circle. They got us pretty good.” Would you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?
