Genosyde, McKoy Lands to contest INSPORTS/Babsy Grange final

Genosyde, McKoy Lands to contest INSPORTS/Babsy Grange final

first_img PENALTY ROUND St Catherine: FOLLOWING highly exciting and competitive semi-final matchups, Genosyde and McKoy Lands secured their places in the final of the Institute of Sports (INSPORTS)/Babsy Grange Community Football competition in Gordon Pen, St Catherine. In a very tight affair that finished 1-1 after full and extra-time, Genosyde went on to beat Brunswick 5-4 on penalties, while McKoy Lands also endured a nerve-wracking penalty shoot-out to prevail over Rebel United, following a 2-2 regulation and extra-time scoreline. Kenano Allen had fired Brunswick into a 16th-minute lead, but with the celebrations hardly over, Nick Williams (19th) notched the equaliser. The second half saw the teams battle without scoring goals, thus advancing to the shoot-out, which Genosyde won. In the McKoy Lands-Rebel United semi-final match, Roshane Myrie scored the opening goal for McKoy Lands, after only two minutes. Rebel United answered with a goal from Roger Francis in the eighth minute, but McKoy Lands regained the lead as Andre McLeod scored the team’s second goal. Determined to stay in contention, Rebel United made one last push and found another goal through Roger Francis to tie the scores 2-2. Another penalty round was in order and McKoy Lands sealed a 3-2 victory, along with their place in the upcoming final. The competition is similar to others held in various communities, both in rural and urban Jamaica, and fits within the mandate of INSPORTS to unearthing talent in sports across the country. The main objective of these competitions is to provide a structured medium through which talents can be displayed and identified for further development through the state agency’s coaching programmes. “INSPORTS is here to provide those opportunities and to give athletes the chance to excel within their sporting disciplines. The fact that there is untapped potential becomes clearer when we host these kinds of competitions and invite players to display their talents on the field. What we are doing through our football community programme is priming players for professional advancement,” noted Ian Andrews, administrative director of INSPORTS. Rudolph Barnes, assistant national sports coordinator, also commented on the semi-final matches. “What we saw here today makes me very optimistic about the future of football in Jamaica,” he said. “This just speaks to the fact that with continued efforts behind the INSPORTS community football programme and coaching clinics, Jamaica will be able to produce world-class football players.” INSPORTS will be extending its coaching clinic programme to St Catherine next month.last_img read more

AME Church Celebrates 143 Years in Africa

first_imgBishop Dogbe concerns unity of the churchThe African Methodist Episcopal (AME) church over the weekend celebrated its 143rd anniversary in Africa as members of the congregation reflected on the growth and development of the church, as well as the reunion and inspiration made possible by the centenary.The event, which coincided with the church’s 108 annual session of the Liberia Annual Conference (LAC), was attended by all branches of the church throughout the country.The occasion was held under the theme, “The Freedom Church: Reviewing Our Practices,” which is one of the most instructive for the Western Episcopal District as a whole, but particularly for the AME as the Mother Conference.Dr. Hillard K. Dela Dogbe, Right Reverend and Bishop of the Western West Africa Episcopal District, in his sermon expressed gratitude to God for bringing them thus far in unity as a church.“If we are to accomplish our God-ordained mandate and experience growth and development, it is imperative that we be prepared and willing to review our old ways,” Dogbe challenged members of the congregation.Members of the congregation at the AME church conferenceBishop Dogbe told the congregation that each of them will individually or collectively be inspired by the Holy Spirit to the glory of God at the end of the anniversary.He further hailed his colleagues for remaining united and devoted to the call of God.The Bishop was full of gratitude to the Board of Trustees, the pastors and their spouses, Presiding Elders, the Deacons at all levels and every other member for their positive contributions in diverse ways, which he believes brought the church thus far.Dogbe meanwhile called on the preachers to be matured in their behavior, while preaching and transforming the lives of each member.He then urged the congregation to remain committed to the LAC by seeking for support to empower the LAC and to also equip the Pastors with the necessary skills to propagate the word of God.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

DD HEALTH WATCH: NEW APP TO HELP HAY FEVER SUFFERERS

DD HEALTH WATCH: NEW APP TO HELP HAY FEVER SUFFERERS

first_imgDD HEALTH WATCH: A new app, which will allow hay fever sufferers to determine the nature and severity of their condition before advising them on best treatment, has been launched.Hay fever is an allergic reaction to pollen. While most people are affected by grass pollen, pollen from trees and flowers can also be a problem for some sufferers. Symptoms can include a runny nose, watery eyes, sinus pain, sneezing, coughing and headaches.Hay fever season runs from April to September and it is estimated that 85% of those affected during this time self-medicate. The new app, Hay Fever Relief, allows those affected to input their symptoms, which are graded according to their severity. The app will then recommend the best treatment available. This information can be shared with a pharmacist for quick and efficient relief.Developed by MedApp Ltd together with GP, author and allergies expert Dr Paul Carson, the app comes just as pollen counts start to soar.Commenting on the app, Dr Paul Carson, who has worked in this field for over 30 years, noted that many people with hay fever develop a coping mechanism to deal with the condition and become used to living ‘a compromised quality of life’.“With the number of hay fever sufferers in Ireland growing (now estimated at 24% of the population), younger generations are suffering more severe attacks. This app allows users take control of their condition giving them an accurate read on the severity and nature of their hay fever. They can then discuss the app’s recommendations with their pharmacist and start to plan for immediate pollen allergy relief,” he explained. The app will also provide information on pollen counts both in Ireland and abroad, which will be useful for people travelling.Dr Carson says that the treatment of allergies, particularly hay fever, is under-resourced in Ireland.“Indeed internationally, the number of trained allergists dealing with the worldwide allergy epidemic is disappointingly low. This app will help educate, inform and empower hay fever sufferers giving them the best possible guidance without going to a doctor,” he insisted.The Hay Fever Relief app is free to download on AppStore. For more information visit the Facebook page or log on to http://www.hayfever-relief.com DD HEALTH WATCH: NEW APP TO HELP HAY FEVER SUFFERERS was last modified: April 16th, 2016 by John2Share 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:donegal daily healthhay feverhay fever applast_img read more
