Coalition an Alternative for 2017 UP Defeat

Coalition an Alternative for 2017 UP Defeat

first_imgSenator George Weah has proposed the coalition of political parties as the best alternative to retire the Unity Party led government at the 2017 polls.Presidential elections will be held in two years with an expected full field of candidates in the quest for national leadership. President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf is serving her second and final term.Speaking over the weekend in Ganta City, Nimba County, the Congress for Democratic Change (CDC) political leader, Senator Weah, noted that capturing state power in 2017 requires a “shared vision” that will bring together the best minds from the Liberian political arena to successfully counter the Unity Party’s quest for an uninterrupted 12 years of governance.Said Weah, “We are very mindful that the unfolding political equation towards 2017 speaks about cooperation and collaboration among political parties and politicians with shared vision.“When we speak of political collaboration we speak not solely of increased numerical strength but essentially of consensus building on key national issues. The CDC is therefore open to dialogue and will in fact encourage cooperation and collaboration with other political parties and politicians. However, we will certainly not sacrifice our values and shared vision on the altar of numerical strength.” The Montserrado County lawmaker’s comments contradict previous assertions by some of his party officials, including National Chairman Nathaniel McGill, that “Weah will not be second to any candidate come 2017.”It can be recalled that prior to the 2011 elections, similar comments about Weah being the best choice to lead the CDC as a frontrunner were heard many times from party stalwarts, but it turned out that Weah eventually yielded his status to UN trained diplomat Cllr. Winston Tubman.The former FIFA world best soccer legend again defended the assertions of his dominance by saying, “If we have to do it alone, we can and we will.”Again, knowing that in two previous elections CDC has failed to collect the majority of votes required to govern the state, Weah noted, “We rather not, because, political cooperation and collaboration will strengthen our national vision and build consensus on national policy issues.”He described the planned political marriage as “essential in sustaining the peace and driving development.”To achieve this policy objective, he said, “The CDC will and must remain at the helm of any political collaboration to ensure that the confidence reposed in us by our mass followers is not betrayed.”According to him, “CDC believes that peace is cardinal to development and it can only be achieved through social justice, equal opportunity and equitable distribution of the national wealth.”Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

‘Streaking’ Coyotes host UC San Diego tonight

‘Streaking’ Coyotes host UC San Diego tonight

first_img San Diego is led by junior guard Leora Juster (21.3 ppg, 5.4 rpg, 4 apg), the CCAA player of the week this week. It also has talented post players in 6-1 freshman Michelle Osier (12 ppg, 8.8 rpg) and 6-0 junior Hillary Hansen (11.6 ppg, 7 rpg). Much of the Coyotes’ attack centers around junior Christina Day (13.2 ppg, 8.1 rpg) who is questionable with a foot infection that sidelined her the last two games. Freshman Jaclyn Rainville would start in her place. Senior guard Tamara Thomas (10.1 ppg, 4.4 rpg) is the floor leader for the Coyotes. NOTE Tonight will be Inland Empire Chambers of Commerce Night. Active members of any chamber chapter can get free reserved seats for the men’s and women’s doubleheader, which starts at 5:30 p.m. at Coussoulis Arena. There will be a pregame networking reception in the Founder’s Room adjacent to the arena lobby. Chamber members must contact associate athletic director Mike Kovack at (909) 537-5049 before 4 p.m. today to arrange for tickets. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

The Coyotes are 16-10 lifetime against UC San Diego, but have not lost to the Tritons since UC San Diego moved from Division III to Division II in 2000. San Diego does have a win over Grand Canyon, a team Cal State lost to by one. But the Coyotes have wins over two opponents – Stanislaus and Cal State Los Angeles – that the Tritons have lost to. Clint Allred (12.8 ppg) and Henry Patterson (11.8) are averaging double figures for the Tritons (4-8, 1-3), who lead the conference in scoring defense, allowing just 65.5 points per game. “We have been having some very good practices,” Oliver said. “We’re working on seeing that we carry that momentum over into games. That was a problem early, but we’re doing a better job of that lately.” Coach Kevin Becker’s women’s team will also have its hands full. The Coyotes defeated San Diego in both meetings last year. But the Tritons (8-2, 3-1) enter with the hot hand, having upset No. 12 ranked Chico State 79-77 one night after the Coyotes (7-4, 1-3) lost to the same team 76-49. SAN BERNARDINO – The Cal State San Bernardino men’s basketball team heads into tonight’s 7:30 game against UC San Diego riding a win streak for the first time. But that’s no reason to get over-confident. “We haven’t won enough to take anyone lightly,” coach Jeff Oliver said. “We had a pretty good two games last weekend. But that’s all it is, two games. We still have a long way to go before we are where we need to be.” center_img The Coyotes (4-6, 3-1), looking for their seventh straight conference title, are in a three-way tie for second place behind Sonoma State in the California Collegiate Athletic Association. They defeated Chico State and Cal State Stanislaus last weekend, using a solid final five minutes in pulling away from both foes. The Coyotes have benefited from a balanced attack. Moses Gonzalez (12.1 ppg), who had a career-high 26 on Saturday, is the leading scorer, but he only ranks 19th individually in the CCAA. Curtis Williams (11.6 ppg), who ranks third in the conference in three-point field goal percentage, is next for San Bernardino. The Coyotes have also had strong all-around games from juniors Chet Johnson and Geoffrey Clayton. last_img read more

Fielder Hankerd hungry for success

Fielder Hankerd hungry for success

first_imgHe was batting .387 (82 for 212) in 53 games at short-season Yakima (Wash.) when he was assigned to Lancaster last week. He replaced Carlos Gonzalez, who was assigned to Double-A Tennessee. Butler said Hankerd’s makeup and ability remind him of former standout major league teammates Cory Snyder and Dale Murphy. “He’s got a really good understanding of how the game’s supposed to be played,” Butler said. “I understand why (the parent Arizona Diamondbacks) drafted him so high.” Pitching in: Butler attributes much-improved pitching to be a key factor in a 14-10 month that catapulted the JetHawks into first place. The JetHawks’ staff ranks last in the California League with a 5.43 ERA, but their staff ERA in August is a significantly better 4.74. Among their hottest pitchers are left-handed reliever Jared Doyle, who is 2-1 with a 1.88 ERA in August, and right-handed reliever Jonathan Valverde, who has a 2.45 ERA with no decisions this month. “We’ve had the best hitting and the worst pitching in the league all year, but our pitching has been much better lately and that has a lot to do with why we’ve been successful,” Butler said. “We’re going to go as far as our pitching goes.” Odds and ends: Mayobanex Santana homered in Wednesday’s 8-4 loss to the Storm for the first time since coming out of retirement to join the team on Sunday. Santana, who’s in his third stint with the JetHawks, hadn’t played in nearly two years when he was assigned to Lancaster from Yakima, where he was working as an intern coach. Wednesday was Santana’s 25th birthday. Hot-hitting Javier Brito hit a two-run homer in Wednesday’s game. He had three homers and eight RBIs in the three-game series. The JetHawks (63-66, 31-28 second half) led the South Division by 1 1/2 games over Lake Elsinore (65-63, 29-29) going into Thursday. gideon.rubin@dailynews.com (818) 713-3607160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWhy these photogenic dumplings are popping up in Los Angeles“Solid kid,” JetHawks manager Brett Butler said of Hankerd. “He gives you everything he has.” Hankerd, a lanky 6-foot-2 21-year-old baby-faced Southern California native who lives in Covina, boosted his draft status after a breakthrough junior year at USC, batting .383 (88 for 230) with 10 homers and a .587 slugging percentage. His power surge came after hitting just two homers in 359 at-bats in his previous two years. Hankerd said coaches throughout his career have instilled in him his blue-collar playing style. “That’s the only way to play, in my mind,” Hankerd said. LANCASTER – JetHawks outfielder Cyle Hankerd is a high-ceiling prospect who doesn’t act like one. Since being assigned to Lancaster last week, Hankerd, a third-round selection in this year’s draft out of USC, has produced, going 6 for 24 with two homers and a double. But what’s gotten him noticed is a hard-nosed playing style that more closely resembles a hungry 43rd round pick. In the first game of Sunday’s doubleheader against the High Desert Mavericks, Hankerd crashed into a padded left field fence to make a catch. He’s made several other diving plays. last_img read more

Bell: United play-off defeat hurts more than Rangers

Bell: United play-off defeat hurts more than Rangers

first_img“We were well within the tie and obviously things didn’t go our way this time and the decision went against us on Thursday night so it is difficult to take at this moment in time now to be honest.”Bell says suffering play-off heartache twice is what is hurting the most and says the fact he was captaining the side makes the result harder to take.The United keeper also admitted some at the club may have lost their jobs because of the result and says that is the toughest part to take.He added: “Probably because this is the second time this has happened to me it is very difficult to deal with. Dundee United goalkeeper Cammy Bell says the play-off final defeat to Hamilton was worse than when he was a part of the Rangers team who failed to win promotion to the Premiership two years ago.Bell, who joined United after being released from Rangers, couldn’t help United return to the Premiership as Greg Docherty’s second half strike secured Hamilton’s top flight status.The 30-year-old says decisions didn’t go their way in the first leg at Tannadice Park, when Simon Murray was sent off for two alleged dives, and Bell says the result is difficult to take.He said: “I’ve been here before and it feels worse this time to be perfectly honest. “Being captain as well makes it tough but there are no words to put in we know when we went into the dressing room people might have lost their jobs and that is the hardest part.”last_img read more

Trailfire: Experimenting With Trails

Trailfire: Experimenting With Trails

first_imgDisclaimer: I am testing out Trailfire as part of a consulting agreement.Full details below. At thebeginning of September I postedabout Trailfire, a unique social bookmarkingservice that reminded me at the time of Vannevar Bush‘s 1945 pre-hypertextconcept The Memex. Essentially what Trailfire does is enable you to place annotations onany web page and link related web pages to form a trail, or navigation path.About a month after my initial post, the Trailfire team contacted me with a consultingproposal to try out a custom trail mark on my blog – one designed specifically forRead/WriteWeb. The idea was that this would enable me to provide brandednavigation trails on my blog. I thought this sounded like a nice ‘value add’ feature,that readers might find interesting. Also trails / hypertextual navigation is a conceptthat I am very interested in experimenting with – so I agreed. But to be perfectly clearand transparent, I am being paid my regular consulting fee to try out Trailfire andreport back to them.As part of the experiment I will be using Trailfire on this blog, to provide relatedinformation via trails. Basically this is a totally optional feature for you, the reader.If you don’t download the Trailfire product, then you will notice absolutely nodifference to Read/WriteWeb. Of course if you do download Trailfire to follow my“trails”, then I hope you will discover more relevant content – and what’s more,contribute your own trails if you feel so inclined. Look for the little red pin (seescreenshot below) – every time you see it roll your mouse over it to view the note.So here’s how this will work: over the next month I will be adding “trails” to around4-6 blog posts per week. These trails will provide extra or related information about thepost – including not just text, but possibly pictures, video and audio files. You willonly see these trails if you download Trailfire. I’ve startedby adding a trail to my Weekly Wrapuppost from earlier today – I did a chronological trail of my Web Office coverageacross R/WW and (mostly) ZDNet. Tags:#Social Bookmarking#web Facebook is Becoming Less Personal and More Pro… The Dos and Don’ts of Brand Awareness Videos Related Posts richard macmanus If you don’t have Trailfire downloaded, you can also view the trail at this address:http://trailfire.com/readwriteweb/marks/20121So, I’m not sure how this will pan out. But it certainly seems to me like an interestingexperiment, with appropriate ‘old school’ pre-Web influences (Vannevar Bush, DouglasEngelbart, Ted Nelson).
