(AP Photo/Pavel Golovkin)SARANSK, Russia — Iran’s goalkeeper is sure his team can now compete with the best after stifling Cristiano Ronaldo.After Alireza Beiranvand saved a penalty from Ronaldo in a 1-1 draw with Portugal, the Iranians nearly scored a winner deep into stoppage time. An Iran victory would have put the team at the top of Group B ahead of Spain.ADVERTISEMENT Even though Iran is eliminated, Beiranvand sees a bright future for the national team and his eyes are set on the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.“I waited until the last second to stop that penalty and I feel our hard work could have earned us a spot among the last 16 in Russia,” he said. “But I can definitely see that in the future no one will think of us as a surprise.

Decomposed body of guest found in hotel room

first_imgThe partially decomposed body of a male occupant of one of the rooms at the Safari Inn Hotel at Friendship, East Bank Demerara was found in the room on Monday evening. The corpse has been identified as that of Phillip Crawford, who had been a long-term occupant of the establishment.Based on reports received, proprietress of the hotel, Jagmoorah Correira, also called Yvonne, told investigators she detected a strange stench emanating from the room occupied by Crawford, and immediately contacted the Police.When the Police arrived at the location, the door to the room was broken to gain access, and the lawmen were confronted with a heavy stench and Crawford’s body lying on the floor next to the bed.There was no sign that a struggle had taken place in the room, and there were no visible marks of violence about Crawford’s body.Guyana Times was told that the man, who had suffered from a mental illness and diabetes, had been a guest at the hotel for the past several weeks.

Local woman plans mission tailored to African children’s needs

first_imgWHITTIER – In Kibera, the largest slum in Kenya, children go to work early to support their impoverished families. Some never go to school at all, unable to afford school uniforms, or forced to stay home to care for parents with AIDS. Thousands of miles away, Melissa Clare is working to improve those bleak odds. This summer, the 19-year-old will visit Kibera in Kenya as a missionary for her church, Faith Community Church in unincorporated East Whittier. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORE11 theater productions to see in Southern California this week, Dec. 27-Jan. 2She plans to take along dozens of dresses to distribute to the children there. “It’s not for the sake of bringing them something material,” said Clare, who works at Jo-Ann Fabrics & Crafts in Whittier. “It’s so the girls have something to look pretty in.” Clare is leaving in August to join Project Kibera. Once in Kibera, she and five other students from her church will organize a Bible camp for 100 teenagers from the slums. They will teach them about AIDS awareness, sanitation practices and leadership. For the dress drive, Clare is asking residents to donate fabric, or to purchase 21/2 yards of bright cotton fabric from Jo-Ann. Lannie Mendoza, who manages the Viking Sewing Center inside the fabric store, said it is her second experience helping make dresses for girls in Africa. She helped in a similar drive at a store in Temecula. “I learned that something very minute can make someone very happy,” she said. Residents can also donate time helping to sew the simple sheath-style dresses at Jo Ann’s on Whittier Boulevard on June 10 and June 24. So far, Clare and local volunteers have created about 23 dresses. She said she wants to have 80 dresses to donate to the children. “We have had a good response, but we still need more fabric and more help to reach our goal,” she said. Clare also hopes to get enough material to make about 80 pairs of shorts for boys in Kibera. The store is also holding a raffle to raise funds for the effort. “It’s a way for the whole community to take ownership of a project that is bringing hope to people living with disease, strife and poverty,” said Clare. debbie.pfeiffer@sgvn.com (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3028160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Mullins to make Donegal senior bow against Queen’s

first_imgNathan Mullins will make his debut for the Donegal senior football team in Wednesday’s Dr McKenna Cup clash against Queen’s University in Ballybofey.Midfielder Mullins, who plays for Dublin senior champions St Vincent’s, is a son of Dublin legend Brian Mullins.During Brian Mullins’ time as principal at Carndonagh Community School, Nathan was born in Donegal and also lined out for Donegal at U21 level under Jim McGuinness. Declan Bonner recruited Mullins, who has played in challenge games against Roscommon and Armagh.And now Mullins is set to be given his head in the McKenna Cup.“He is a mature player and everything he does is done professionally,” Bonner said.Odhrán Mac Niallais is also likely to make his return this week, although Leo McLoone – who is back in the county panel again – will have to wait until closer to the end of January before he is ready to get back into competitive action. Bonner said: “Leo is working hard and has a lot of rehab done on an injury. He’s back training and we’d expect to see him towards the end of the McKenna Cup or the start of the League.”Although the new Donegal boss says his team will be largely experimental in the McKenna Cup games with Queen’s, Monaghan and Fermanagh, the likes of Martin O’Reilly, Eamonn Doherty, Caolan Ward, Hugh McFadden, Eoin Ban Gallagher, Michael Carroll, Mark Anthony McGinley, Michael Langan, Caolan McGonagle and Jamie Brennan are among those who will be featuring.Mullins to make Donegal senior bow against Queen’s was last modified: December 31st, 2017 by Chris McNultyShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Brian MullinsDeclan BonnerDonegal GAALeo McLooneNathan MullinsOdhran Mac NiallaisSt Vincent’slast_img read more

We must all work together: Zuma

first_img3 June 2009President Jacob Zuma has called on all South Africans to work in partnership with the government to realise the vision of a better, more prosperous nation.“Fellow South Africans, working together we can do more to realise our common vision of a better and more prosperous nation,” Zuma told a joint sitting of Parliament during his first State of the Nation address in Cape Town on Wednesday.Referring to the turnout at the recent general elections, Zuma said South Africans had confirmed, in overwhelming numbers, that working together “we can do more to fight poverty and build a better life for all”.Working in partnershipHe said that while the South African economy had not been affected by the global economic downturn to the extent that a number of other countries had been, its effects were now being clearly felt.“It is more important now than ever that we work in partnership on a common programme to respond to this crisis.”He said the government’s starting point in the response to the international economic crisis was the framework concluded by government, labour and business in February this year.Prudent actionZuma was firm that, since the implementation of government’s programme would take place in the face of the economic downturn, the administration would have to act prudently.“No wastage, no rollovers of funds – every cent must be spent wisely and fruitfully. We must cut our cloth according to our size,” he said.Interactive governmentHe also told South Africans that in an era of renewal, the government would become more interactive.To this end, work has begun on the establishment of a public liaison capacity in the Presidency. In addition to receiving letters and e-mails from the public, the government would establish a hotline for easier access.“Staff will handle each public inquiry as if it was the only one, following it through all the channels until it receives the attention it deserves.”Source: BuaNewslast_img read more

Introducing North Carolina Military Outreach

first_imgToday’s Friday Field Notes features the North Carolina State University Cooperative Extension Military Outreach program, as described by J. Scott Enroughty. The program’s mission focuses on creating awareness and understanding of the issues and stresses faced by military families and youth while building community partnerships to increase capacity for youth, families, and veterans.NC Cooperative Extension Military Outreach exists to design programs that help North Carolina military youth, families, and veterans find positive ways to cope with stress of military life.North Carolina State Extension Military Outreach is proud to support the more than 138,867 active duty, reserve and guard troops who call our state home. Particularly during this time of global deployment, service members need to know that their families here at home are surrounded by supportive citizens, offering a cadre of services and resources to help ease the stress of pre-deployment, deployment and post-deployment. More than 109,000 military youth from the ages of 0 to 18 call North Carolina home.Active Duty, National Guard, and Reserve service members live throughout North Carolina – they are in our backyard. Some counties have a higher concentration of families, while others have only one. Because these families are spread throughout the state, they all do not have the support systems that are typically available as active duty military families who live on or near military installations.North Carolina State Extension Military Outreach is a collaborative effort with North Carolina communities to support children and youth impacted by deployment. Regardless of whether families are experiencing deployment for the first time, second time or another series of multiple deployments, NCSEMO’s goal is to connect military children and youth with local resources in order to achieve a sense of community support and enhance their well-being. We offer a variety of programs and activities to support the military families in North Carolina.  A few of the programs and activities:NC Cooperative Extension Military Outreach “Red, White & Blue” 5KNation Youth Science DayNC Zoo Snooze“Rock the Wall” at Triangle Rock ClubScience Day at Morehead PlanetariumWolfpack Leadership & College ExperienceMilitary Appreciation Day Baseball Game & Run with the PackMilitary Appreciation Day Football GameA Day at the Theatre (Raleigh Little Theatre)CSI Camp at Catawba Science CenterBugFest – North Carolina Museum of Natural ScienceAmerican Indian Heritage Day – North Carolina Museum of HistoryFor more information or if you have questions, contact J.
