By Clifton RossGuyana Under-19 Head Coach Julian Moore praised his young side for another Regional milestone after the 5-time Regional 50-Over champions returned home of Thursday, following their dominance in this year’s Cricket West Indies (CWI) Championships.Guyana Under-19 cricket team along with Director of Sports Christopher Jones (right) and GCB Secretary Anand Sanasie (right) strike a pose with the Golden Arrowhead following their return home after winning the CWI regional 50-Overs title for a 5th straight yearMoore and his team led by skipper Bhaskar Yadram defeated the hosts Windward Island in their final match on Wednesday at Arnos vale in St Vincent and the Grenadines, to win the coveted limited overs title for the fifth straight year. The Guyanese finished with 27.8 points, 5.5 points ahead of Trinidad & Tobago and Moore told Guyana Times Sport following their arrival at the Eugene Correira Airport on Thursday, that he was proud of his boys despite not retaining the 3-Day title.“Obviously we went with a motive to win both tournaments it didn’t go our way in the 3-Day. We did some soul searching and the guys were pumped up to go and win the one day tournament to redeem themselves and we did just that,” the Coach said.Julian MooreThe stars of the match were Kevelon Anderson who 4-26 with pacers Qumar Torrington 3-26 and Joshua 2-23 helping to mow down Windwards for 105 in 33.5 overs. Kevin Sinclair, the in-form Guyanese stroke maker then hit 39 and shared a third-wicket stand of 63 for the third wicket with Sachin Singh who made 27 not out to help Guyana lift another Regional title.Speaking on the perfromances of the players, Moore was overly excited at the prospects of a few of his players making the future West Indies U19 team after they managed to mature to a championship level during the tournament.“I think a lot of the guys did well, we can point to everyone and say they have a bright future, once we have the right systems put in place. Bhaskar has a long way to go and Joshua Persaud and Ashmead Nedd have played U19 for West Indies before so it’s just about those players transitioning to the senior levels”. Moore explained.The former youth batsman was further pleased on the way his players went about their business, further pointing out that he was confident from the inception with regards to Guyana continuing their dominance at the Regional senior and junior levels. “We got Qumar Torrington, Joshua Jones who took the most wickets for us in the one day tournament. Traditionally Guyana has always been a good bowling side but this year our pacers dominated along with Yadram and Anderson, the especially pacers led from the front so I think we have a lot of talent but we have to nurture it and push it forward.”Concluding his interview, the Berbician said he now plans to continue working with his players while he will also be on a mission to further develop his prowess as a national cricket coach. “It’s always important to win for your country and I’m proud of myself and the guys especially the contributions of the GCB. So I’m satisfied with the run I had so far”, he ended.
“Instead of focusing on a battle between two teams.. Corriere dello Sport comes with the dumbest of headlines I have ever seen in my career,” Lukaku said in a message on Twitter.“You guys keep fuelling the negativity and the racism issue.”Lukaku and Smalling have both taken Serie A by storm since arriving in the summer, with the Belgian striker bagging 10 goals in 14 appearances for title hopefuls Inter and England international Smalling becoming an instant fan favourite in the Italian capital.“It is important that I acknowledge that what occurred this morning was wrong and highly insensitive,” wrote Smalling on Twitter.“I hope the editors involved in running this headline take responsibility and understand the power they possess through words, and the impact those words have.”Both Roma and AC Milan announced on Thursday evening that they would be banning the Corriere dello Sport until the end of 2019 over the headline.“Our players will not carry out any media activities with the newspaper during this period,” the two clubs said in a joint statement. They added that the ban was short because “the actual newspaper article associated with the ‘Black Friday’ headline did portray an anti-racist message”.The article praised the two players for taking “strong positions against racism and are the symbols of the two clubs”, but Roma tweeted “not a single soul” would think the headline a good idea.“The intention of the newspaper article was actually positive but this headline has totally overshadowed the anti-racist message contained within the story,” Roma’s chief strategy officer Paul Rogers told AFP. “Unfortunately, as we’ve seen on social media, more people will see that ill-judged headline on the front page than read the actual article and it creates new issues at a time when we are all trying to tackle the issue of racism in Italian football.”The headline cause uproar in a country where a number of black players have been targeted with racist abuse. Mario Balotelli was racially abused by Hellas Verona fans last month, while AC Milan midfielder Franck Kessie was also targeted by Verona supporters and Lukaku was himself abused at Cagliari, also serial offenders.Lukaku’s club Inter Milan said earlier: “football is passion, culture and brotherhood. We are and will always be against all forms of discrimination.”The Corriere dello Sport was unrepentant, saying the headline was “only the praise of difference, the pride of difference, the magnificent wealth of difference”.“White, black, yellow. Denying difference is the typical macroscopic stumbling block of anti-racism racism,” it said in an editorial.“An innocent headline… is transformed into poison by those who have poison inside.”0Shares0000(Visited 39 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Romelu Lukaku has been targeted with racist abuse in in first season in Italy © AFP / Miguel MEDINARome, Italy, Dec 5 – Romelu Lukaku and Chris Smalling on Thursday slammed a renowned Italian sports daily as “dumb” and “insensitive” after it used “Black Friday” in a front page headline about them meeting for the first time in Serie A.Former Manchester United teammates Smalling and Lukaku face off at the San Siro on Friday as Inter Milan look to maintain top spot in Serie A, prompting the Rome-based Corriere dello Sport to publish a headline that has attracted widespread condemnation.

When authorities determined that a 9-year-old boy playing with matches had inadvertently started the Buckweed Fire, they declined to press charges. And now that they have concluded that five partying young men inadvertently started the Malibu fire over Thanksgiving, they have charged them with felonies. In both cases, authorities made the right decision. Unlike the boy who caused the Buckweed blaze, the men in Malibu were all adults. Moreover, they all knew, or should have known, that starting fires in the cave above Corral Canyon is illegal. Doing so during a dry season of hot Santa Ana winds only compounded the infraction. So did failing to report the fire to authorities. That recklessness caused $100 million in damages. Those responsible should be held accountable, if for no other reason than as a warning to others who could make the same horrible errors in judgment.

Missed your number? Struggling? Here are seven sales management mistakes. It’s likely that a combination of a few of these are what ails you.Not building a hunter’s culture. If you are a sales leader, you need to create a healthy culture. That healthy culture needs to celebrate prospecting and opportunity acquisition. It needs to reject order-taking behaviors. You aren’t going to make a difference for people if they don’t know who you are and how you create value. You need more opportunities.Not inspecting activity at all. You need to measure outcomes. But that doesn’t mean that there is no place for managing activity. Too many sales managers have decided that the long sales cycle, complex sale doesn’t require any measurement of activity. You need more activity.Not helping your salespeople improve the value they create. Your salespeople don’t come to you with everything they need to succeed. You can’t pretend they do. They need to learn to create greater value, meaning they need more business acumen and situational knowledge. Without it, they will not reach the level of success of which they are capable. You need to create more value.Not spending time in the field with your reps. I get it. We’re all spread out. We use GoToMeeting. You will never know how to help develop your salespeople if you don’t go and see for yourself how they do with prospects and clients. You need to see for yourself.Not selling the value of the sales process. Your sales process isn’t perfect. But it’s better than a sharp stick in the eye. Your salespeople skip whole stages of your sales process, and by doing so they don’t create value for your prospects or gain the commitments they need. You need to sell them on the process. Then you need to coach to the process. You need to follow the process.Spending too much time serving the organization. The organization you serve prevents you from doing the one thing that will serve them more than anything else: spending time with your sales force. If you have to make a trade off, trade time with your people for time in meetings and on conference calls. No one will miss you if you tell them you need to miss a call because you and your rep are in front of your dream client. You need to spend time with your team.Not providing enough air cover. Your company is going to make some serious blunders in the name of better sales results. If you don’t provide your sales force with air cover by arguing against bad ideas–killing as many as you can–then you are missing a crucial component of your job. You need to protect your team. But once a decision is made, you march with no complaining. You need to protect your team.Maybe these questions will help you build an action plan.QuestionsWhat is keeping you from having more success with your team?Which of the above list are you guilty of?

An American citizen of Indian origin who works in Bahrain was stuck at Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International (IGI) Airport for the last three days after his handbag, which carried his passport, was taken away by another passenger by mistake. The other passenger was heading to Canada.Satyendra Singh arrived in Delhi from Lucknow, where his parents live, on Jan. 13, and he was in transit for Bahrain. Little did he know that he would be spending three days at the airport before being able to head back.“The queue was long so I put my handbag in the scanner. By the time I reached for check and crossed it, I could not find my bag. I informed the security, who checked the CCTV footage and found that another passenger took the bag and boarded the Air Canada flight. The flight had already departed by then,” Singh told the Hindustan Times.The passenger on Air Canada took Singh’s bag and left his behind by mistake. Singh was left with no money or clothes and spent the night sleeping at the terminal. He was not allowed to leave the terminal since his immigration check had taken place in Lucknow. Neither could he return. The Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) said he could not be allowed to return unless he had a passport, according to protocol.“I informed my family and they said they will send some money so that I could buy food. But there was no way they could have contacted me. Finally, on Sunday, Air India shifted me to the lounge and I am currently here. Besides the passport, my handbag had my medicines,” he added.He received his bag on Jan. 15 evening after Air India contacted Air Canada. He was given accommodation and food at the Air India lounge at the Delhi International Airport and “we helped him getting the passport back,” a spokesperson for Air India said, the publication reported.

Barcelona: Top-flight women footballers in Spain are going on strike indefinitely from Nov. 16 over a disagreement about pay and conditions, the Association of Spanish Footballers (AFE) said on Monday.Last week, 93% of players employed by 16 first division clubs voted to go on strike and after a meeting between the AFE, other unions and the Association of Women’s Football Clubs (ACFF) failed to resolve the issue the plans were announced. “There has been no agreement with the Association of Women’s Football Clubs and, therefore, an indefinite strike of first division matches has been called, which will begin the weekend of Nov. 16-17,” said the AFE in a statement.The main point of conflict between the clubs and players is part-time contracts, with the AFE asking for a minimum of 12,000 euros net a month for players on a part-time salary, while the clubs offer 8,000.”We are 100% football players, every hour of the day,” said Ainhoa Tirapu, vice-president of the AFE women’s football committee and the Athletic Bilbao goalkeeper, last week.The women’s top flight is run by the Spanish Football Federation (RFEF). An RFEF source said the governing body was following the matter with concern although it was an issue between the clubs and the players.The ACFF did not immediately respond to a request for comment. footballpayspainWomen First Published: October 29, 2019, 6:08 PM IST
