Penalties cause trouble for Trackers in weekend double header

By on January 12, 2020

first_imgThe Trackers are back in action in just under two weeks’ time, when they head to Fort McMurray for a two game roundtrip against the Oil Barons. FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The Northeast BC/Yukon Trackers found themselves shorthanded for a number of long stints during a pair of games this past weekend.On Saturday night at the North Peace Arena, the Trackers hosted the Peace River Royals, the 2nd ranked team in the Bouchier Division of the NAMHL’s Rural Conference. After battling back-and-forth, the Trackers jumped to a 1-0 after a goal by Jayden Piket assisted by Connor Kindrat with 2:18 left in the opening frame. Peace River responded just over a minute later to keep things tied going into the first intermission.In the second period, the Royals jumped out to a 2-1 lead before Connor Bowie evened things up with a power play tally assisted by Aiden Craig-Steele and Jeridyn Loewen. With thirty two seconds left on the clock, Bowie and Loewen fed a pass to Curtis Hammond, who buried it to give the Trackers their second lead of the game.- Advertisement -In the third period, the Trackers were given four penalties, putting them down a man for close to eight minutes. The Royals capitalised on their first power play, evening things up just two seconds before Bowie’s two minute interference penalty was set to expire.Though the Trackers killed off three more penalties, the team wasn’t able to generate any momentum. A bad bounce in the dying seconds of the game resulted in a 3-on-1 for the Royals. Brandon Clark, who looked phenomenal in net for the entire game, made the first save but wasn’t able to cover the rebound, as the Royals scored the game winning goal with six seconds left in the third.Facing off against division rivals Grande Prairie on Sunday, the Trackers again played a close contest. The combination of Bowie, Craig-Steele and Loewen again combined on the power play to give the Trackers a 1-0 lead just over fourteen minutes into Sunday’s contest. The Athletic Club responded in the second period, scoring their own power play goal to tie the contest at one apiece. The Trackers ended up having to kill a number of penalties, including several 5-on-3’s. Northeast BC was able to start generating offence in the third, but unfortunately weren’t able to get pucks in the net. The game ended a 1-1 draw.Advertisementlast_img read more

“Never thought I would see hunger return to Guyana” ꟷ Jagdeo

By on January 11, 2020

first_img…says many depending on PPP to take back country, resume growthOpposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo on Saturday told the Guyanese diaspora in Queens, New York (NY), that he never thought he would see hunger returning to Guyana and committed that the People’s Progressive Party will work assiduously to ensure that it returns to office at the March 2020 polls to resume economic growth of the country.Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo addressing the Guyanese Diaspora in Queens, New York on Saturday“People in the sugar belt, who in the past had a job, now can’t even feed their family. I never thought that we will see the day when hunger returns to Guyana, where people can’t feed their families. They don’t have enough monies to buy food for their families and they’re taking their kids out of school. This is happening in many parts of the country but particularly in the sugar belt of Guyana because people don’t have a social safety net,” Jagdeo told the gathering at a luncheon organised by the Association of Concerned Guyanese (USA Chapter).He noted that the “unconscionable” APNU/AFC Government, without needing to, went ahead to shut down several estates and sent home more than seven thousand sugar workers, leaving the industry that once carried Guyana’s economy with only three estates.According to the Opposition Leader, the Guyana Sugar Corporation (GuySuCo), while it may not be financially feasible, has economic feasibility and so, instead of undertaking a transitional arrangement to keep the industry viable, the coalition “vindictively” chose to close those estates, leaving many in despair.Jagdeo posited that the struggle in Guyana is intensifying because of the continued mismanagement by the Government in many of the sectors.“We’re just about under 80 days away from elections and we have [to] win these elections. They are crucial for the sake of our people… So many people in our country now are dependent on the People’s Progressive Party to take back the country and resume the growth path we had start on, and to resume the development that they experienced [under PPP],” he stated.On this note, the Opposition Leader disclosed that he has been working on building a core of young professionals within the PPP to not only run the country for the next five years but for many decades to come. He underscored the importance of having diversity and inclusivity in the party’s leadership so that all of Guyana is represented.In fact, Jagdeo, who is also the General Secretary of the PPP, pointed out that the party’s philosophy has always been to fight for all of Guyana. It is for this reason, he contended, that the PPP had longevity in the office, governing for more than 20 years.“That’s why we lasted for 23 years in office and because they’ve been so partisan in managing Guyana, when the next elections come they’ll be out. So this [is] crucial but it is not only people from our base who’re depending on us. People who voted for APNU, now they’re coming to us in droves because they too are losing jobs because of the inept Government. They’ve had a chance to compare PPP with PNC (People’s National Congress) and they find us attractive. They are people who’ve never supported the PPP and so many of them too are hopeful for a PPP victory. Many of them, like in Georgetown, are working to get rid of this Government, people who all their lives have been PNC,” he said.Jagdeo outlined that while PPP has traditionally been considered an Indo-based party with strong Amerindian support, the party has been working very hard to expand its membership to include Afro-Guyanese as well.“Cheddi Jagan set up the PPP to fight for the independence of Guyana and for the upliftment of all Guyanese, not just Indo-Guyanese but all Guyanese and that’s the essential nature of the party… We’ve consistently open up to people of every race, every religion and class because that’s what we are. We’re not like the others, race-based or religion-based party, we’re a national party and that is why the PPP is so viable and will always remain viable and will always look out for all of Guyana,” he stressed.The Opposition Leader went on to point out that when the PPP moved from two seats in Georgetown at the last Local Government Elections (LGE) in November 2018 to seven seats, it came as a shock to everyone including the PNC-led coalition because this has traditionally been their stronghold.“We’ve been working hard outside our strongholds,” he stated.Further, Jagdeo added that they will continue to work to attract more unconventional support and are even sharing excerpts of the party’s manifesto in those areas so that people can learn about the PPP’s vision and what they’re working on for the future of Guyana.last_img read more

DONEGAL TD’S ANGER AFTER GARDA OMBUDSMAN CONFIRMS THEIR OFFICES WERE BUGGED

By on December 24, 2019

first_imgPadraig Mac LochlainnResponding to reports that the Garda Ombudsman had their phones bugged and emails hacked, Sinn Féin Justice Spokesperson, Pádraig Mac Lochlainn has described them as “disturbing” and “of immense public concern”. He has called on Minister for Justice and the Government to have the reports thoroughly investigated as a matter of urgency.The Donegal Deputy said: “This report from the Sunday Times that the Garda Síochána Ombudsman Commission (GSOC) had to seek assistance from a British security consultancy without the apparent knowledge of Minister Shatter and the government to investigate GSOC’s suspicion that they were being spied on is remarkable. “That it is also reported that their phones were bugged, emails hacked and wifi compromised is disturbing and will be of immense public concern.“I am calling on the Minister for Justice to have these reports thoroughly investigated and answers provided for the public as soon as possible.”He continued: “In my capacity as the Chairperson of the Oireachtas Committee on Public Service Oversight and Petitions, I will be contacting the GSOC to establish their position on what has taken place.“Our committee were to have them before us soon to discuss their perspectives on the levels of cooperation from An Garda Síochána with their investigations and we will now need urgent answers on this very serious report too.” The shocking revelations – in today’s Sunday Times – claimed that a meeting room where Ombudsman staff met to discuss complaints against Gardai had been bugged.The Ombudsman brought in former British security agency experts to scan their offices. DONEGAL TD’S ANGER AFTER GARDA OMBUDSMAN CONFIRMS THEIR OFFICES WERE BUGGED was last modified: February 9th, 2014 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:buggedOmbudsmaPadraig Mac Lochlainnlast_img read more

Why Secure-Email Startup Lavabit Shut Down: The Feds Wanted Its Keys

By on December 15, 2019

first_img8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Related Posts david hamilton Tags:#Edward Snowden#email#nsa#public-key encryption#surveillance Lavabit, a secure-email provider startup that counted NSA leaker Edward Snowden as one of its customers, abruptly closed down in August rather than “become complicit in crimes against the American people,” as founder Ladar Levison wrote at the time. And now we know why.Federal court records unsealed yesterday reveal that the FBI demanded access to Lavabit’s private SSL keys, which would have allowed the feds to decrypt the email of any Lavabit user, not just that of Snowden—the FBI’s presumed target, although the documents redacted names associated with accounts sought by the feds. (The government denied any interest in reading email unrelated to its target.)See also: Death Before Dishonor: Secure Email Services Shut Down Rather Than Comply With Feds“[T]hey wanted to break open the entire box just to get to one connection,” Levison told the New York Times.Levison initially refused until threatened with fines and criminal contempt charges—at one point, he printed out the keys in a four-point font that filled 11 pages, which U.S. government lawyers complained was “illegible.” Finally, however, he ran out of options. So he turned over the digital keys, but simultaneously closed down Lavabit, rendering further surveillance impossible.Levison is appealing the lower-court order; opening briefs are due by October 10.

There isn’t any good quality lens manufacturer that gives you comparable specs for such a low price. The Rokinon/Samyang/Bower brand has already put out a line of extremely powerful cine-lenses specifically designed for the indie filmmaking community.These Cine-lenses all come with de-clicked apertures and a focus ring that allows for smooth focusing.
