PORT-OF-SPAIN, Trinidad (CMC): Embattled West Indies spinner Sunil Narine has been banned from participating in the NAGICO Super50 series to be played in Trinidad and Tobago and StKitts from January, cricket sources in the twin island republic have reported. The West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) has reportedly rejected a request from the Trinidad and Tobago Cricket Board (T&TCB) to allow the off spinner to take part in the tournament. The Guardian newspaper has quoted a source within the T&TCB as saying that the request was turned down because the WICB did not want to go against the findings of the International Cricket Council. He recently failed a test on his bowling action at the Loughborough University testing centre in England. Narine bowled T&T to the Nagico title last season, with figures of six wickets for nine runs.

NORRISTOWN, Pa. – A troubled teenager accused of plotting a school attack built up a stash of weapons with the help of his mother, authorities said Friday. Michele Cossey, 46, was arrested Friday on charges of illegally buying her home-schooled son, Dillon, a .22-caliber handgun, a .22-caliber rifle and a 9mm semiautomatic rifle with a laser scope. The parents were indulging the boy’s interests because he was unhappy, not knowingly aiding a school assault, Montgomery County District Attorney Bruce Castor said. The parents didn’t know of the teen’s plans, but “by virtue of her indulgence, she enabled him to get in this position,” Castor said. Authorities have said they do not believe an attack was imminent and are not even certain one would have occurred. “I’m sure she loves her kid,” said her attorney, Tim Woodward. The teen, who also had a brief court appearance Friday, was ordered held at a juvenile facility while he undergoes a psychiatric evaluation. He was charged with solicitation to commit terror and other counts, but his lawyer, J. David Farrell, stressed that all but one of the weapons prosecutors put on display were pellet guns and air rifles. It is legal for children to possess air guns in Pennsylvania. Farrell also noted it is legal for a minor to fire weapons under adult supervision and said he didn’t believe the students at Plymouth Whitemarsh were in any danger. “They’re showing 30 guns on a desk that appear to be handguns and saying this was a Columbine in the making,” Farrell said. “That’s simply not borne out by the facts.” On his MySpace page, Dillon Cossey made frequent references to Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold and describes their 1999 massacre at Columbine High School as one of his interests. The page, headlined “Mess with the best, Die like the rest,” features tribute videos to the Columbine shooters and includes a still from surveillance video of the attack.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

The teen previously attended middle school in the district but had been taught at home for more than a year after voluntarily leaving school. Acting on a tip from a high school student and his father, police searched the boy’s bedroom and found the 9mm rifle, about 30 air-powered guns modeled to look like higher-powered weapons, swords, knives, a bomb-making book, videos of the 1999 Columbine attack in Colorado and violence-filled notebooks, Castor said. Michele Cossey bought the semiautomatic rifle at a gun show Sept. 23 and provided police with a receipt, investigators said in court papers. The teenager said the two .22-caliber weapons were stored at a friend’s house. She was charged with unlawful transfer of a firearm, possession of a firearm by a minor, corruption of a minor, endangering the welfare of a child and two counts of reckless endangerment, and later released on bail. She did not comment at the hearing.

The Minister of State for Gaeltacht Affairs, Joe McHugh, has admitted he had had some hilarious moments as he gets to grips with the Irish language.Minister Joe McHughThe Carrigart man was appointed to his post last July but admitted he had very little Irish.But he soon won over public opinion after attending a number of courses in his native county. But the father of three told Donegal Daily he had some amusing moments as he struggled with his “cupla focal.”“I threw myself into the language because I knew that I had to try and use the small bit of language I had if I was to improve it.“In the early days of my appointment I was in a hotel in Galway and I needed to go to the toilet.“I was quite confident and I went up to a member of staff and I asked them where the football was? That was quite amusing,” he laughed. The Minister, who is married to former Fine Gael Minister Olwyn Enright, revealed there is a struggle between Galway and Donegal Irish at his home.“Olwyn would have been taught Galway Irish but I have Ulster Irish so that’s a little be different.“We have three children under five years and we are trying to speak as much Irish as possible in the house.“But our Irish is very different and it’s a battle to get the children to speak our Irish,” he laughed.He admits one of his secrets is an Irish/English dictionary which he learns one word from each day. And he says he now actively speaks irish to a number of his neighbours and friends whom he said would never have attempted to converse with him in Irish because he never had a good grasp of the language before.The Minister said he is actively seeking ways to continue to promote the language including bringing down the cost of learning the language.He also plans to bring in a new symbol or technique which he hopes will help the public recognize that people are open to speaking the language in everyday situations.“I appreciate that you have the ‘Fainne’ but I would like to introduce something be that a phrase or a symbol that would allow other people to recognize that you are willing and keen to speak the Irish language. “I also appreciate that not everyone can afford to do courses in Irish so I am continually looking at ways of making learning Irish as cost neutral as possible,” he said.“IT’S AMUSING AT TIMES BUT I’M LOVING GETTING TO GRIPS WITH THE LANGUAGE” – MINISTER McHUGH was last modified: January 23rd, 2015 by StephenShare 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:Carrigartdonegalirishjoe mchugh tdlanguage
Stephen Curry, the Warriors’ two-time NBA Most Valuable Player, has a wellspring of motivation at his disposal and on demand. It is fed by the dismissive, sometimes harsh critiques of his basketball acumen (including his own self-doubts) he suffered along the road to super-duper stardom. He’s not shy about sharing.To wit, from an essay Curry published Wednesday on The Players Tribune: In the summer of 2001, the AAU national championships were in Tennessee.

In exchange for buying a $50 annual membership, the organization is offering donors the chance to use their network log-in as their OpenID. In other words, if you’re the type of person who shares their content for the good of education, art and humanity, now you can wear it like a badge across the networks you frequent. While it’s often misinterpreted as an organization looking to remove copyright from creative works, Creative Commons actually helps content producers decide on the exact uses for their products. For instance, some content owners allow derivative works for non-commercial and educational purposes and some allow for remix pending attribution. The point is that the organization aims to make more content available to the public for experimentation. As works are released to “the commons”, artists, educators and innovators learn and build upon them. ReadWriteWeb covered the Creative Commons database and some of its shining case studies in 2008. It make sense that this group would offer OpenID as membership to their service. OpenID is a decentralized digital identity that allows for easy access to a number of networks. Members benefit from one singular identity and networks benefit from a lowered barrier to membership. In this way, more information is shared across a variety os social landscapes and therefore, as with Creative Commons, there are more opportunities for engagement and education. Says open source advocate Chris Messina in a recent blog post on CC OpenID:“Creative Commons is redistributing the brand equity and social capital their members have accrued over the last several years by letting people show and verify their affiliation to the organization.With this simple example, we can start to see the symbiosis of making an intentional choice about identity: Creative Commons finds a new revenue opportunity and members of the community have a way to express their affiliation and promote the brand.”
The Maharashtra government employees agitating for the implementation of the Seventh Pay Commission decided to continue their three-day strike on the second day after meetings with senior officials failed to bring consensus. Maharashtra Rajya Sarkari Karmachari Sanghtana, the State government union that called the strike has, however, directed medical staff to join work from Thursday, following the explosion at the BPCL refinery in Chembur, Mumbai.Maharashtra Rajya Sarkari Karmachari Sanghtana General secretary, Avinash Daund, in a press conference on Wednesday night, said that the union met with Finance Minister Sudhir Mungantiwar and then with Chief Secretary D.K. Jain. “We demanded a time-bound program to fulfil our demands. Since they gave us no concrete answer, we have decided to continue the strike,” he said. “We were told that State does not have enough money to fulfill our demands but we are not asking the government to pay us at once.”Political supportSeveral political parties expressed support for the employees.Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray said that the government should focus on solving their problems instead of threatening them with disciplinary action.State Congress president Ashok Chavan, said that continuous agitations from different groups are due to a lack of communication between the government and stakeholders. Nationalist Congress Party State president Jayant Patil said,“The government is promising to implement the Seventh Pay Commission from January. This is to win the elections that may be held in March-April.”The employees’ other demands are raising the retirement age from 58 to 60 years, a five-day work week, continuing the old pension scheme and a two-year child care leave for women employees.
