Harbour View frustrate UWI in RSPL clash

first_img“It was a frustrating game for us.” University of the West Indies FC’s (UWI) assistant coach Andrew Peart cut a frustrated figure after the league leaders were held at home against 10-man cellar dwellers Harbour View in top-flight action yesterday. Harbour View halted red-hot UWI FC’s winning streak with the teams battling to a 1-1 draw in the Red Stripe Premier League (RSPL) at The UWI Bowl in Mona yesterday. The visitors took an early lead when Ranique Muir slotted past the advancing UWI goalkeeper Amal Knight in the fifth minute. However, that strike was cancelled out by Deno Schaffe in the 50th minute. A corner kick taken by UWI’s captain Rochane Smith was headed by Schaffe past Harbour View’s custodian Joel Johnson. Harbour View were later reduced to ten players when Nicholas Beckett was shown a red card by FIFA referee Odette Hamilton for a dangerous challenge on UWI’s Kemar Flemmings in the 47th minute. Both teams had their share of possession and both enjoyed periods of dominance. Harbour View looked better in the first half and were rewarded with the early strike, while UWI took control in the second half, an effort which led to their equalising goal. “It was a frustrating game for us. We started slow and went behind. Then in the second half, we played better. However, we did not show enough aggression after Harbour View went down to ten players,” Peart told The Gleaner. Coach of Harbour View Ludlow Bernard credited his team for a fighting game after the red card. “It was a battling performance from the team. We deserved to win as we got the better chances. I believe that with the extra player on the pitch, we could have done better,” Bernard claimed. Despite the draw, UWI continue to lead on 20 points in the 12-team table, while Harbour View remained in 11th position on six points.

Site C to move ahead

first_img**Update – For more on this story, click here The decision to pursue Site C comes at a time when BC Hydro forecasts that B.C.’s electricity needs will grow by 20 to 40 per cent over the next 20 years. The Province and BC Hydro are planning now so that British Columbians will continue to enjoy the benefits of clean, reliable and affordable electricity in the future.“Based on our work, we believe it is in the best long-term interests of our customers to move forward on Site C,” said Dan Doyle, chair of BC Hydro. “Site C will provide clean, reliable and low-cost power in British Columbia for generations to come.”Construction of Site C will be subject to required regulatory approvals, and ensuring that the Crown’s constitutional duties to First Nations are met.Site C will now advance to the regulatory review phase, which will include an independent environmental assessment. The regulatory review phase is expected to take about two years, and it is anticipated that Site C will be available for domestic electricity need by 2020.The regulatory review for Site C will involve consultation processes, including opportunities for input and participation by the public, First Nations, stakeholders, communities and customers.Advertisement HUDSON’S HOPE – The B.C. government announced today that it will move forward with the Site C Clean Energy Project (Site C). The Site C project will be the third dam on the Peace River in northeast B.C., and will be a source of clean and renewable energy for over 100 years, producing enough electricity to power approximately 410,000 homes per year.“Hydroelectric power helped develop our province and Site C will build on B.C.’s heritage of clean, renewable and affordable, power,” said Premier Gordon Campbell. “Site C will be a publicly owned heritage asset and will ensure that British Columbia has reliable sources of clean electricity, while contributing to our goal of electricity self-sufficiency.”The government’s decision to advance Site C is based on the project’s benefits to British Columbians. These include:Site C will help meet B.C.’s future electricity needs by providing 900 megawatts of capacity and 4,600 gigawatt hours of electricity each year.Site C will produce among the lowest greenhouse gas emissions per gigawatt-hour, when compared with other forms of electricity generation. This will help B.C. further displace fossil fuel-generated electricity with clean energy.As the third project on one river system, Site C will generate 30 per cent of the electricity produced at the W.A.C. Bennett Dam with only five per cent of the reservoir area.Site C will contribute to the local and provincial economy by creating an estimated 7,650 direct construction jobs through the construction period, and up to 35,000 direct and indirect jobs through all stages of the project.As a source of firm energy, Site C will facilitate the development of clean energy projects by providing additional capacity to back up intermittent resources, such as wind, run-of-river hydro and solar.“The Province and BC Hydro are committed to providing lasting economic and social benefits for northern communities, First Nations and all of British Columbia,” said Blair Lekstrom, Minister of Energy, Mines and Petroleum Resources. “Site C will also energize our potential as a clean energy powerhouse, encouraging new investment, industry and jobs.”Advertisement In addition, as part of the environmental assessment process, the project will consider potential environmental and socio-economic effects, impacts to land and water, and options for regional benefits, such as infrastructure and supporting recreational opportunities. Where impacts cannot be avoided, BC Hydro will identify and evaluate potential options for mitigation.The Site C Clean Energy Project has been evaluated using best practices in project planning and development. This includes a five-stage process that provides multiple milestones for assessing the project and deciding whether to proceed to the next stage.The provincial government decision to advance Site C to the third stage of project planning and development, including an environmental review, is based on two years of work by BC Hydro that included comprehensive consultations, as well as environmental and engineering studies.The BC Hydro report, ‘Stage 2 Report: Consultation and Technical Review’, along with 35 appended studies and reports, is available at: www.bchydro.com/sitec.For many years, nine other sites have been available for consideration of large scale hydro-electric storage dam projects, including two on the Peace River system. Although these sites have never been part of BC Hydro’s plan, they have remained legal options for consideration. The new Clean Energy Act will change this. It will enshrine in law B.C.’s historic Two Rivers Policy by prohibiting future development of large scale hydro-electric storage dam projects on all river systems in British Columbia, such as the Liard River system. It will also preclude further dams on the Peace River system other than Site C.Advertisement  Premier Gordon Campbell has given Site C the go ahead.- Advertisement -At a press conference in Hudson’s Hope, the Premier announced the project is expected to create 35,000 jobs and will come into service in 2020.We will have more on this shortlyBelow is the press release from the ProvincePROVINCE ANNOUNCES SITE C CLEAN ENERGY PROJECTProject to create 35,000 jobs, lasting benefitsAdvertisementlast_img read more

Will Welbeck be Arsenal’s new Henry? Fan reactions

first_img1 Danny Welbeck has joined Arsenal Danny Welbeck showed he is far from a busted flush on Monday night, as the striker put in an energetic display and scored twice as England kicked off their Euro 2016 qualification with victory over Switzerland. But with attentions returning to club football the question over whether he can do it for new club Arsenal arises.Over the past year the hitman has found himself used as a filler around other strikers at Manchester United, but with a switch to Arsenal comes a new opportunity for the 23-year-old to prove his worth.Back in 1999, Arsene Wenger took out-of-sorts winger Thierry Henry and turned him into a world-class striker, but will he do the same with Welbeck? We asked talkSPORT listeners and here’s what they said…Arsenal fans, will Wenger work wonders with Welbeck or will he be a costly flop? Comment below…last_img read more

Video: Chelsea sign Cuadrado and Christian Atsu does this

first_imgJust as Chelsea signed Juan Cuadrado during the January transfer window, the Blues’ other winger, Christian Atsu, reminded manager Jose Mourinho what he was capable of.Atsu was playing for Ghana against Guinea in the Africa Cup of Nations and scored twice in a 3-0 win, one of which was a wonderful finish.The 23-year-old signed from Porto in 2013 and was loaned to Everton at the start of the season, but has played just three Premier League games for the Toffees.There are rumours Mourinho will cut short his Goodison Park career and send him elsewhere for regular first team football, though Roberto Martinez claimed last month he was eager to keep Atsu.last_img
