McAnuff wants to finish the job

first_imgPHILADELPHIA, Pennsylvania:FIRM in his belief of their growth, Joel ‘Jobi’ McAnuff thinks the Jamaica team is nicely positioned to beat Mexico in today’ CONCACAF Gold Cup final.The last time both countries met, McAnuff, who has been key for the Reggae Boyz while playing attacking or central midfield, was just coming into the Jamaica team”You take each game on its own merit, that was obviously a little while ago now. I think we’re a different team now and I’m sure they are as well,” he recalls. “Now obviously both teams have got to the final, different circumstances, it’s a one-off game, it’s about who performs better on the day and we’re looking to carry our performance into the final.”For the first game in Mexico … it was very much a new squad, new people coming together literally a couple days before that game, I remember it clearly, just turning up in Mexico and all of a sudden you get to know everybody and meet people,” he said of that coming together for the February 2, 2013 World Cup Qualifier (WCQ) that ended 0-0 in Mexico City.”Here, you’re two years down the line and everybody’s sort of comfortable with each other, everybody knows the dynamics of the group and it works very well. That’s something we’ve been able to build over the last couple of years and we’re in a good place,” he said.He added: “We won our group and at the end of the day we’re one of the top teams at that stage. We’ve had two tough games since then and came out on top in both. So, of course, we’re confident of finishing the tournament off, we’re not satisfied with what we’ve done so far.”last_img read more

Live Thru Ebola

first_img“Live Thru Ebola” Is a very touchy melodic Message Johantz Wilson and his partner Ash Monique (a 14yr-old aspiring singer from London who now lives in Mount Vernon, the United States); is sending out to everyone that is affected one way or another by this deadly Ebola disease.  In the song, Ash Monique sings while Wilson raps praying for better days to come.This song, which is now making some serious international airwaves and getting a lot of media attention, came as an inspiration to Johantz after he got a phone call from his mother in Liberia telling him he had lost one of his Favorite Cousins to Ebola.  Johantz told LIB Life that his cousin recently died from Ebola and he urges the public not to lose sight of the dangers posed by the virus, in as much as there’s news that the virus is slowing down a little.  He said when he heard his cousin had died from the disease, he became more determined to return to West Africa sooner than he had planned to help those suffering from the Virus.  “It was terrible because when I got the news that Ebola had hit one of my very own, it just kind of shook and tore me up,” said Johantz when he got the call from his mother who still lives in Liberia. “When mom called me that night, all I heard in her voice was, ‘Ebola is killing us, Ebola is killing us.’ She kept repeating that over and over and I was like mom, take it easy, everything is going to be alright.”Wilson says his cousin, 38 year-old Betty Nabgah, left two of her daughters behind after contracting the illness.  “It was disturbing.  It was very hard to take in, you know, and all I kept on doing was hoping and praying that there was going to be better days.”  His main concern now like everyone else is that he prays to see no new cases in the three most affected countries especially his home, Liberia.  He also aims to help create awareness about the problem worldwide. This is why Wilson says he’s working with the American Red Cross to promote a song he wrote and produced.  “The song is basically a message from my heart.”  He added that the song is dedicated to his cousin and hopes it will soothe the hearts of other families that are suffering from all the pain the virus has caused.  “I just knew that what I wrote would make a difference”.Meanwhile, according to Wilson, all of the money the song will raise will go to the America Red Cross, which they’ll use to for the purpose towards the fight against Ebola by checking the spread of the disease in West Africa and worldwide; and help support families who are being affected by the disease.Also speaking on News 12, Paul Shipman of the American Red Cross says, “the song is going to raise awareness about the need to fight Ebola and it’s also going to raise funds.”Wilson is a native of Liberia, born in Buchanan and attended Cathedral Catholic School up till age 12, when he left for the United States in 1982. He still has his mother and other family members who are facing the crisis here in Liberia, not knowing what the outcome will be. He’s a music producer, songwriter, performer and owner of an independent record label Lasmouve Records based in Bridgeport, where he presently lives. Wilson’s record label has been established since 2001.Wilson hopes to be in Liberia within the next year or two after being away for so long. His music, Live Thru Ebola can be found on Youtube via the QR code or on www.lasmouve.com.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Deaf society protests for right to drive

first_imgA group of persons from the Guyana Society for the Deaf on Monday protested the Public Security Ministry, Brickdam, Georgetown, calling for drivers’ licences to be issued for them.A section of the protestors gathered opposite the Public Security MinistryThey said that the deaf should be given equal privileges as those who can hear and should not be discriminated against, as they held their placards across from the Ministry.Those persons were represented by Lawrence Hallahan, who interpreted their sign language.It was explained that they met with the Government some time ago to discuss the issue when they were assured it would have been discussed.“We came here a few years ago and we had a meeting with him (Public Security Minister, Khemraj Ramjattan) and chatted with him and the Minister said okay he is going to make plans but now it’s been like a long time maybe two or three years since that meeting and nothing has changed,” one person said via a Hallahan.Another protestor argued that the deaf are treated equally in other countries and are allowed to drive but they are being discriminated against in their own country.Another protestor, who gave his name only as Colin, told Guyana Times that he is aware of persons who are deaf and able to drive right here in Guyana.In fact, he explained that one of his deaf friends has been driving for a very long time and has never had a single accident.Ricky, a deaf young man who was born in Guyana said he later moved to Trinidad where he saw other deaf persons driving and he would like the same to be possible in his home country.According to the protesters, one of the questions that often lingers on the issue is how they will be able to hear emergencies, vehicles and sounds around them. However, according to the protesters, they are capable of driving by using their mirrors to see what is happening around them.The protesters said that because of how they are being treated, they are forced to use taxis although many of them already have their own vehicles.They said that they are willing to continue protest action until the Government fulfills their promise to them. Efforts by this newspaper to contact the Public Security Minister for a comment on the issue proved futile.last_img read more

WHY MARINA IS THE ‘MANE’ WOMAN IN DONEGAL

first_imgMarina with some of her sculptures which are due to be presented at the Horse Racing Ireland awards next weekIrelands top racehorses, jockeys, trainers and owners over the past 10 years all of one thing in common. They each have a piece of sculpture which started out life as a bag of clay in a Co Donegal studio.The artist behind the works of art – Marina Hamilton from St Johnston – will next week see her sculptures presented to the current cream of Irish racing for the tenth year in a row. The distinctive blue horses were first presented at the Horse Racing Ireland awards in 2002 and over the past decade they have been given to some notable winners.They include Princess Haya of Jordan, Film director Jim Sheridan, Michael O Leary trainers Aidan O Brien, Willie Mullins and Dermot Weld, jockeys Ruby Walsh, Kieran Fallon, and Barry Gerraghty to name but a few.“It’s a great thrill to know that there’s piece of my sculpture sitting in the palace in Dubai and in the home of one of Hong Kong’s richest families who owned the horse Sea the Stars, says Marina.Marina pictured with trainer John Ox and jockey Michael Kinane after they picked up their award following the success of their horse Sea the Stars“When you think that each horse started out from a bag of clay in the studio at home and then travelled around the world before ending up on a mantle piece, it’s quite a journey “It was a great honor to be asked to make the awards for Horse Racing Ireland. They wanted the sculptures to be distinctive and they also liked the idea that each one was hand built and no two were exactly the same. Little did I know that ten years on I would still be making them.”Marina has made a around 60 blue horses for the awards and five of them are now on the mantle piece in jockey Ruby Walsh’s home, while Aidan O Brien has three in his home.It is a busy time for Marina as she is also preparing for the National Crafts Fair in the RDS in Dublin this week and when she comes home she plans to open her gallery in St Johnston in the run up to Christmas.Marina’s work can be viewed online at www.marinahamilton.net or on facebook Marina Hamilton Painter and Sculpture.
