We hope to motivate them to participate in environmental protection by sensitizing them about the issues we are faced with, pollution being one of the most prominent,” said Public Relations Officer, Kitwani Carbon.Carbon was named Dominica’s “Junior Tourism Minister,” after she emerged winner of a Caribbean Tourism Organization Youth Conference in St. Maarten last year.Addressing the launching ceremony, the Minister for Environment, Natural Resources, Physical Planning and Fisheries, Dr. Kenneth Darroux commended the students for playing their part in preserving of the natural environment.Darroux noted that his government was engaged in several initiatives to promote conservation, including the annual November 4th beautification programme and the monitoring of quarrying activities along the west coast and the impact on the fishing industry.Darroux said the Roosevelt Skerrit Administration was also reviewing the Fisheries Act to regulate the use of fishing resources and pointed to Dominica’s anti-whaling stance as further evidence of a commitment to environmental protection.“At the very top level we recognise the economic importance of preserving our natural environment. At a ministerial level we are currently putting legislation together to ensure that environmental laws are current and applicable.“We are also looking to convert the environmental coordinating unit into a full-fledged government division,” he told the CHS students.January 27th has been designated Convent High School’s Annual Green Day.Dominica Vibes News Tweet Share

RelatedPosts Tyson Fury to Anthony Joshua: Don’t risk fighting Usyk Anthony Joshua wants Tyson Fury, Wilder fight Joshua: Tyson Fury won’t distract me Tyson Fury’s trilogy rematch against Deontay Wilder has been slated for October 3. Fury dominated Wilder last month, inflicting a first career defeat on his American opponent to claim the WBC world heavyweight title at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. It was the second clash between the rivals, after their first meeting in December 2018 was scored as a draw. Under the terms of their contract, the loser of last month’s clash was entitled to demand a third fight, and Wilder triggered that option just six days after he his seventh-round stoppage at the hands of the Gypsy King. Now that fight has been slated to take place on October 3, again in Las Vegas, according to The Athletic. The trilogy had been expected to take place on July 18, but Mirror Sport reported earlier this week that the fight would have to be put back three months with boxing currently suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic. Fury’s promoter Bob Arum told ESPN: “You could not guarantee the fighters that the event would take place on that date. “We couldn’t convince them or ourselves. Where were they going to train for it? It just made no sense. You just have to take a step back. “How are you going to sell tickets? It’s absolutely ridiculous to say the fight is on when the Brits can’t even get there. “So everybody has to take a step back. Boxing is not isolated, it’s part of what’s happening in the world. So possibly the fight will be in early October.” The change of date also throws a potential unification fight between Fury and fellow world champion Anthony Joshua into doubt. A December date had been discussed, with the fight likely to take place in Saudi Arabia – assuming Fury beat Wilder again and Joshua saw off the challenge of Kubrat Pulev. The Bulgarian is due to challenge for Joshua’s three belts at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on June 20, but that fight could be moved to July 25 or later.Tags: Deontay WilderESPNGypsy KingLas VegasTyson Fury
Aston is no stranger to such shocks – he was man of the match when Sheffield stunned Wigan in the 1998 Challenge Cup Final – and he is encouraging his charges to adopt a no-fear attitude at Thomond Park. “Dream the dream and live it,” Aston said of his outlook at Ireland’s captain’s run on Friday. “For the last three weeks we’ve been dreaming it and now it’s time to live it. It isn’t all over, people are saying we’re going home on Sunday. We’ve still got a chance and while there’s a chance you have to grasp it and I have told the boys that. “They’ve been good this week because they’ve been down. They’re buzzing, hyper and ready to play and it’s a good time to put a statement out about Irish rugby league.” That statement carries a risk and reward factor. A strong showing in the backyard of Munster – the two-time Heineken Cup winners who are tantamount to a religion in Limerick – would win new admirers, while a heavy loss would feed those in Ireland who only recognise the 15-a-side code. “Limerick is all about Munster and people walk into this stadium, week in, week out. Every bar, coffee shop and hotel has something about Munster in it,” Aston said. “This is a massive step and we’re trying to grow the game in Ireland and there’s no better facility than the one here. There’s a legacy and we’re desperate to put on a massive performance and hopefully people will buy into it. We’re not just here for the short-term, we’re here to develop it.” Australia have been at pains to point out they are not taking the Wolfhounds lightly, with assistant coach David Furner highlighting positives he has seen in their campaign. They lost 42-0 to England last week but were better as the game went on and Aston wants to continue that trajectory. “We’re really looking forward to it because it’s a massive challenge for us playing against the world’s best in a great facility,” he added. “We’re up for it because we feel we’ve let ourselves down a little bit over recent weeks and want to put it right. We are going to ask the question and see what they dish up for us. “As a player and coach you want to challenge yourself against the best and that’s what we’ve spoken about. I told the players they will know where they’re at after this competition but this is the big stage and I get a buzz out of that and the players should too. “It’s not easy and if we can come out of it loud and proud with the Irish people behind us, we’ll be happy.” Mark Aston is refusing to admit his Ireland side are facing up to an impossible mission in the World Cup, despite everything pointing to the contrary. The Wolfhounds have lost their two Group A matches to England and Fiji at the expense of 74 points and only a win in their final clash on Saturday can give them a chance of making the quarter-finals. But that game is against unanimous tournament favourites Australia and should Ireland win, it would stake a claim for being the greatest upset the sport has seen. Press Association
Allam revealed this week that he put Hull up for sale in April, within a day of the Football Association Council decision to reject his proposed rebrand. But the outspoken Egyptian has kept his options open by beginning a process of arbitration with the FA – not the Court of Arbitration for Sport as originally stated – and will remain at the helm his plans are upheld. Bruce has long played the pragmatist in the ongoing stand-off between Allam and disgruntled sections of the fan-base, but has always been adamant that the local businessman is a positive influence on the club. He is desperate to maintain what has thus far been a productive relationship – last season brought their highest-ever league finish and a first FA Cup final appearance – and expects arbitration to eventually yield a change from Hull City AFC to Hull Tigers. “I think there will be a positive outcome. That means he will stay and he will win his case. I genuinely believe that will be the case,” said Bruce. “Those are my thoughts. We have seen change before. One club (Wimbledon) went from London to Milton Keynes. Arsenal left Highbury…I never thought that would have happened back in the day. “Or Manchester City leaving Maine Road. The fans even sang ‘Maine Road till we die’. “But they moved into a nice new stadium and everyone forgot about it. “If he was looking to leave the KC and move to Sheffield, then I can understand there would be all sorts of arguments raging. “But when you talk about a name change, there is an ‘AFC’ in there. “Does that have to stay? For me, can we find a middle ground? I think we know now what the situation is so let’s see what the Court of Arbitration says. “But I think it has a long course to play.” Hull manager Steve Bruce believes owner Assem Allam will ultimately be successful in his attempt to change the club’s name to Hull Tigers.

Press Association “We’ve been in constant contact with the Senegal federation,” said McDonald. “There’s no way he can fly, he’s obviously injured and he’s going to miss the African Nations Cup because of his injury and we’re going to miss him because he’s injured. “We’ve been respectful, we’ve given them information and kept in constant contact with them. He’s injured. “We’ve asked them to come across and assess him. We’ve had independent scans done and scans from the club to prove the injury. “We’re not trying to stop anyone from going to represent their country.” Sakho had been due to join up with his national team on Tuesday and undergo assessment from the Senegal medical team but West Ham advised the striker against travelling. Senegal must, however, be allowed to carry out their own tests if they want to and the Hammers have invited the team’s doctors to fly to London and do so. FIFA rules also state: “A player who has been called up by his association for one of its representative teams is, unless otherwise agreed by the relevant association, not entitled to play for the club with which he is registered during the period for which he has been released or should have been released pursuant to the provisions of this annexe. Senegal Football Federation president Augustin Senghor accused the club of a “lack of respect” over Sakho’s withdrawal and said he would consult FIFA and the Football Association in a bid to prevent the player from appearing for West Ham during the tournament. The Hammers have since sent Senegal independent medical reports, as well as the club’s own examinations, to prove the extent of the injury. “This restriction on playing for the club shall, moreover, be prolonged by five days in the event that the player, for whatsoever reason, did not wish to or was unable to comply with the call-up.” Sakho, who has scored nine goals for West Ham since his summer move from Metz, first sustained the injury on international duty in November and suffered a recurrence against West Brom on New Year’s Day. McDonald was unsure about FIFA rulings regarding the striker’s availability but claimed the forward may not recover before the end of the African Nations Cup anyway, with the final scheduled for February 8. “I’m not 100 per cent sure about the rule, Senegal have announced the squad and Diafra isn’t in it,” McDonald said. “We’re not sure how long he’s going to be out anyway – he might not even be available before the end of the African Nations Cup.” “If that situation arises where he does recover earlier than expected, we’ll take advice.” Meanwhile, West Ham defender Winston Reid continues to be linked with a move away from the club in the January transfer window. Reid’s contract expires at the end of the season, when he would be allowed to leave for free, but McDonald believes it would take a sizeable bid to capture the 26-year-old this month. “Would a bid of £20m be enough? That sort of offer would make people think but we need him until the end of the season,” McDonald said. “He’s weighing up his options, we’ve been talking to him for a long time but he’s playing very well so it’s not affecting his performances.” West Ham, who sit seventh in the Barclays Premier League, visit Swansea on Saturday looking to register their first win in five matches. “Swansea have done fantastically well, they play some really good football but we’ve played them at home and we beat them,” McDonald said. “Wilfried Bony is at the African Nations Cup – he’s scored some great goals and he’ll be a big miss for them.” West Ham assistant manager Neil McDonald is adamant the club are right to have ruled Diafra Sakho out of the African Nations Cup, insisting the striker’s back injury is genuine.
DEREK MONTGOMERY/Herald photoThe University of Wisconsin volleyball team heads into the 2005 season with high expectations coming off a successful 2004 season highlighted by an impressive NCAA tournament run. The Badgers advanced to the Elite Eight as they defeated the second-ranked Hawaii Rainbow Wahine before losing to eventual champion Stanford.Though last year’s stellar NCAA showing may add pressure for the relatively young Badger squad to live up to expectations, head coach Pete Waite welcomes the attention going into the new season.“Well, sure, (we’ll have to live up to expectations), but that’s where we want to be, though,” Waite said. “We want to be one of those top teams in the country and a premier program, so we’re really just still growing. The majority of our starters are still sophomores, so they’re still learning and maturing, but it’s a great blend of players and personalities, so they’re going to be really strong.”The Badgers ended last season with a No. 14 national ranking, but with six of seven starters returning from a year ago, they earned themselves a No. 10 pre-season ranking in the CSTV/AVCA Coaches’ Poll. However, Waite is well aware that pre-season rankings go by the wayside when the season gets underway.“Obviously, being ranked 10th nationally is a great honor, but it doesn’t mean anything until you start playing and you really have to prove yourselves,” Waite said. “And we have a tough schedule ahead of us. We know that and the team knows it.”Senior co-captains Aubrey Meierotto and Sheila Shaw return to lead this year’s squad. Shaw is coming off a banner season in which she earned unanimous all-Big Ten and honorable mention All-American honors.The Badgers’ youth was a slight problem early last year, especially with newcomers Jocelyn Wack and Jackie Simpson starting at libero and setter, respectively. However, Waite now believes that his team has rid itself of the learning bumps and should be well prepared for an exciting season.“Well, last year, with three freshmen starters and the libero being a freshman, they were just getting into college and the speed of the college game, and it took them about half the season to figure it out,” Waite said. “Once they did, they got on a great run and they really realized what a great team they could be. The spring season helped them mature, and over the summer they worked really hard in our camp and playing a lot of beach volleyball, so, individually, they put the time in to make them good and strong this year.”And with so many returnees, Waite believes that his team possesses a close-knit relationship that most others do not and that will contribute to much of the team’s success. Wisconsin lost only starting opposite hitter Jill Odenthal and reserve outside hitter Marian Weidner from last season’s rotation.“[Having so many returnees is] huge,” Waite said. “We can start at a higher point when we walk in the gym in preseason and, automatically, we were playing as well as we were in our last match starting at the beginning of the year, so if we go from there and improve, they’re going to do some amazing stuff.”While the Badgers are ranked No. 10 in the nation, two Big Ten teams are still ranked ahead of them — Penn State and Minnesota at No. 5 and No. 6, respectively. Wisconsin has finished fourth in the conference in each of the past two seasons.Nevertheless, the Badgers have their eyes set on the conference crown.“As a team, obviously we’d love to win a Big Ten championship, and we talk about that all the time,” Waite said. “We’re ranked 10th in the country, but there’s two more teams in the Big Ten ranked above us in the top 10 nationally, so it’s going to be a battle not just with those teams, but with the next four or five teams below us, so it’s going to be exciting. I think the fans will have a great time watching this team this season. I really encourage a lot more students coming out. We’re going to have a student section … and the Field House is going to be a really, really exciting place to play.”The Badgers open their regular season Friday as they travel to Colorado Springs, Colo., to play in the Air Force Falcon Invitational. Wisconsin is set to play San Jose State and Weber State on the first day of action and will look to get back in the swing of things sooner rather than later.“The competition is pretty good,” Waite said. “These are teams we haven’t really seen before, so we have to get on the court and figure out [how] they play. We’ll have scouting reports on them, and we’ll start doing that into this week, so we’ll learn more about them then.”
Both sides are in the unusual position of not having any Tipperary senior hurling panel members in their squads.Because of this the game is the only senior hurling action in the county this weekend.The teams came through closely fought semi-finals with Nenagh Eire Og seeing off Borrisoleigh by just 2 points while Burgess had the same winning margin over Kilruane. It’s Eire Og’s first divisional final since 2009 with manager Liam Heffernan saying it’s indicative of the strength in North Tipp hurling.That game at McDonagh Park throws-in at 3.30 on Sunday afternoon.
