Segeyaro: Why I will never play for PNG again

first_imgIn a story published online this morning on www.news.com.au, Segeyaro told Christian Nicolussi of  The Daily Telegraph that he (Segeyaro) had made the up his mind when he returned to PNG  to lay his late father, the late Kumuls star Iffysoe,  to rest.“I’ve played for the Kumuls, but when I went back there for my father’s funeral (last year), I learned PNG rugby league didn’t treat my father with the utmost respect he deserved, and I wasn’t too happy about that,’’ Segeyaro told The Daily Telegraph.“I made my decision to never play for the country again.“You can ask anyone up there how important my father was to the rugby league community, and what he has done for the game and the people in general.“I thought it was time to go our different ways, and fulfil my dream and goals of putting on the green and gold and the (Queensland) maroon.“I’ve lived in Australia since I was a young fella, I owe this country a lot, especially the state of Queensland,’’ said Segeyaro. The rugby star from Eastern Highlands and East New Britain is in the Australian Prime Minister’s XIII side that will take on the PNG Prime Minister’s XIII next Saturday at the Sir John Guise stadium.last_img read more

Venus vs Serena at Aussie Open

first_imgMELBOURNE, Australia (AP):Win or lose, Serena Williams sees another all-sister final at the Australian Open as cause for celebration.The 35-year-old Williams arrived in Australia bidding for a 23rd Grand Slam title, aiming to break the Open-era record she shares with Steffi Graf. By winning, she’d also regain the No. 1 ranking she lost after her US Open semi-final exit.She doesn’t enjoy the suspense or talk about the number. Her older sister, Venus, knows that better than anyone after their two decades of competing together in the majors.Now, the 36-year-old Venus is the potential roadblock, back in a major final for the first time since she lost the previous all-Williams Grand Slam final at Wimbledon in 2009.”I just feel like no matter what happens, we’ve won,” Serena said. “A Williams is going to win this tournament.”Venus hasn’t added to her seven major titles since Wimbledon in 2008, but is in her best form since being diagnosed with energy-sapping Sjogren’s syndrome in 2011.In fact, she was the first Williams into the 2017 final, rallying to beat 25-year-old CoCo Vandeweghe – the only player in the women’s semi-finals who was younger than 34 – 6-7 (3), 6-2, 6-3.ELATED VENUSA jubilant Venus could barely contain her emotions after clinching a spot in the final on her fourth match point, putting her hands to her face, her jaw dropping, before she crossed her arms over her heart and did a stylish pirouette.Feeling like “it was in my hands to force this Williams final” in the subsequent match, six-time Australian Open champion Serena overwhelmed 34-year-old Mirjana Lucic-Baroni 6-2, 6-1.By the time Roger Federer beat fourth-seeded Stan Wawrinka 7-5, 6-3, 1-6, 4-6, 6-3 in an all-Swiss night match to become the oldest man to reach a Grand Slam final since Ken Rosewall made the 1974 US Open final at 39.last_img read more

Jordan dismisses Donald Ramotar’s debt claims

first_imgFormer President Donald RamotarFinance Minister Winston Jordan…says will not be distracted by diatribes of a failed presidentFinance Minister Winston Jordan on Thursday pronounced that Guyana’s debt profile remains stable and sustainable and in fact asserted: “We are in a better position today than 15 months ago, when this Government entered office.”Jordan was at the time seeking to rubbish earlier claims by Former President Donald Ramotar, who during the course of the week had accused the current coalition A Partnership for National Unity/Alliance for Change (APNU/AFC) Government of racking up significant debt which he pegged at more than 60 per cent of the nation’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP).Ramotar made the charge in the context of the debt that had been racked up by the People’s National Congress (PNC) while in office during the 28 years prior to 1992.DiatribeFinance Minister Winston Jordan has since debunked the claims made by Ramotar, saying: “We will neither be sidetracked nor otherwise distracted by the diatribe of a failed president.”Jordan in his dismissal of the former president’s—a Russian trained economist—assertions that Guyana’s debt is climbing said: “Mr Ramotar claims that concerns were being raised in many quarters, but failed to identify a single instance of such. “Jordan said too, that he is unfamiliar with the source of the former president’s claims that the nation’s debt has been on the increase and in fact accused Ramotar of attempting to “pass a falsehood on to the Guyanese people, hoping it would resonate.”According to the Finance Minister, the total public debt to GDP ratio at the end of December 2015 was 48.6 per cent, down from 51.9 per cent at the end of December 2014.He said too that the total debt service to revenue ratio at June 2016 was 7.5 per cent compared to 9.3 per cent at June 2015.According to Jordan, since coming to office, in May 2015, the coalition government has in fact only contracted a total of three loans for a value of US$55.3 million.He pointed to the a US$1.6 million loan for a farm Access Road Project; US$3.7 million for the University of Guyana’s Science and Technology Project Extension, and a US$50 million Loan for the construction of the Ogle Bypass Road.Jordan was adamant that of this amount only US$1.4 million has been disbursed and counted as part of the public debt:“All of these loans were at the discussion stage with the PPP/C Government, prior to May 2015.”He said too that between June 2015 and June 2016, the total public debt, comprising external and domestic debt, increased by less than 1 per cent, or from US$1.54 billion to US$1.55 billion.According to Jordan, “this marginal increase reflects an increase in the issuance of 91-day and 182-day Treasury bills.”The Finance Minister pointed out too that the total public debt had declined from US$1.6 billion at end-December 2014 to US$1.54 billion at end-December 2015.He was adamant that Guyana’s debt profile remains stable and sustainable: “We are in a better position today than 15 months ago, when this Government entered office.”According to Jordan however, “what the Guyanese populace should know, though, is that, at the time the PPP/C Government left office, there were 31 disbursing loans with an approved value of US$616.2 million.”He said of that amount, less than half or US$245.7 million, had been disbursed and, thus, formed part of the national debt.“The balance of US$370.5 million will be disbursed in future…So, even if this Government did not contract a single new loan in the coming years, the national debt will still increase by US$370.5 million, less any sums that would have been repaid or written-off over that period.”According to Jordan, since his demitting office, following two consecutive rejections at the polls by the majority of Guyanese, Ramotar has been occupying himself with writing letters to the press, all of which contain spurious allegations that are designed more to inflame than inform the populace.The Finance Minister reminded of government’s commitment to maintaining a strong macroeconomic position, “that is conducive to the growth of the economy and increasing its international competitiveness.”According to Jordan: “In our single-minded pursuit of this objective, we will neither be side-tracked nor otherwise distracted by the diatribe of a failed president, whose Goebbelsian posture will not be allowed to gain traction in our society.”last_img read more

Court rules against dying woman in medical marijuana case

first_imgSAN FRANCISCO – A federal appeals court ruled today that a California woman whose doctor says marijuana is the only medicine keeping her alive is not immune from federal prosecution on drug charges. The case was brought by Angel Raich, an Oakland mother of two who suffers from scoliosis, a brain tumor, chronic nausea and other ailments. On her doctor’s advice, she eats or smokes marijuana every couple of hours to ease her pain and bolster a nonexistent appetite as conventional drugs did not work. The Supreme Court ruled against Raich two years ago, saying that medical marijuana users and their suppliers could be prosecuted for breaching federal drug laws even if they lived in a state such as California where medical pot is legal. Because of that ruling, the issue before the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals was narrowed to the so-called right to life theory: that the gravely ill have a right to marijuana to keep them alive when legal drugs fail. Raich, 41, began sobbing when she was told of the decision and said she would continue using the drug. “I’m sure not going to let them kill me,” she said. “Oh my God.” When the case was argued before the appeals court a year ago, the government said it could not guarantee that Raich or other seriously ill patients using medical marijuana would not be prosecuted. Over the years, the government has raided dozens of medical marijuana dispensaries, mostly in California. The case is likely to reach the U.S. Supreme Court, but each time the high court has taken up the issue of medical marijuana it has ruled against allowing the sick and dying to use the drug to ease their symptoms and possibly prolong life. The latest legal wrangling once again highlighted the tension between the federal government, which declares marijuana an illegal controlled substance with no medical value, and the 11 states allowing medical marijuana for patients with a doctor’s recommendation. Voters in 1996 made California the first state to authorize patients to use marijuana with a doctor’s recommendation. At least 10 other states followed suit. The case is Raich v. Gonzales, 03-15481. 165Let’s talk business.Catch up on the business news closest to you with our daily newsletter. Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!

PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluNAIROBI, Kenya, Oct 14 – Harambee Stars skipper Victor Wanyama has admitted that the team was charged to win at all costs on Sunday in their 2019 African Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifier against Ethiopia after seeing the crowd that had turned up at the Moi Sports Centre Kasarani for the game.Wanyama was visibly dumbfounded when he walked into the stadium alongside the rest of the boys to have a feel of the pitch shortly after 2pm. He looked around and exclaimed in astonishment as the full-to-capacity stadium gave the team a rapturous welcome. “Looking at that crowd that came in today, it was impossible to just walk into the pitch and fail to get maximum points. It was not possible,” the skipper told Capital Sport.Harambee Stars captain Victor Wanyama urges the crowd on when Kenya played Ethiopia in a 2019 African Cup of Nations Qualifier at the Moi Sports Centre Kasarani on October 14, 2018.

They really gave us the energy to go into the pitch and do the job,” Wanyama added.The midfielder has now asked fans to come out in large numbers henceforth and give the team the necessary support saying that such kind of atmosphere would make Harambee Stars unbeatable at home.“I am sure if we can have this kind of crowd we can beat anyone here.

GOP safe on health bill vote

first_imgEven as a fierce battle brews in Congress over Republican opposition to a $35 billion expansion of children’s health insurance, California’s heavily gerrymandered election districts mean Southland GOP lawmakers face little political risk over their stance. Every Southern California Republican voted against the bill last month, which would add up to 3.1 million new children to health insurance rolls nationwide, including about 203,320 in the Golden State. And furious Democrats are mounting a campaign against GOP lawmakers who oppose the plan as they prepare for a Thursday vote to override President Bush’s rejection of the measure. But Southland Republicans have little to fear from the attack ads and phone campaigns, California political analysts said. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGame Center: Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs, Sunday, 10 a.m.“There is not a single Republican incumbent who will lose their seat because of that vote,” predicted Los Angeles GOP political consultant Allan Hoffenblum. “There might be some piling on … (but) you’ve got to remember, these districts are so gerrymandered and so Republican.” In opposing the measure, many GOP lawmakers decried it as the beginning of socialized medicine and objected to allowing middle-class families to get government-funded health insurance coverage when children in families below the poverty level are still uninsured. And despite criticism from a coalition of unions and liberal groups running ads and issuing condemnations, nearly all have indicated they will back Bush’s veto and vote against the override attempt. “The last thing I would ever want to do is make the federal government responsible for the health care of all of America’s children,” said Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, R-Huntington Beach/ Long Beach. “The real plan here is to set the stage for a movement of the next gigantic step in the direction of what should be called Hillarycare,” Rep. Jerry Lewis, R-Redlands, said during the debate. Aides to both Rep. Howard “Buck” McKeon, R-Santa Clarita, and David Dreier, R-San Dimas, said the lawmakers support the children’s health insurance program – but want to maintain it for families on the margins of poverty. The Democratic expansion, they said, would pull wealthier children into government-run health care. “He wants to cover the children who most need the health care,” McKeon spokeswoman Lindsey Mask said. “We know there are still children who are in need, and we want to do everything that we possibly can to ensure that children have an opportunity to have access to quality health care,” Dreier said during the House floor debate. Democrats and children’s activists maintain their goal is to catch kids from families who are not poor enough to qualify from Medicaid but too poor to obtain private health insurance. “We sort of see this as a good first step toward insuring all the children in the country,” said Ed Shelleby, spokesman for the Children’s Defense Fund. Southland Republicans acknowledge there are thousands of uninsured children in their districts, but contend that they may not necessarily be eligible for government care. Rohrabacher, for example, maintained that most of the estimated 10,000 children without insurance living in his congressional district are illegal immigrants. “We should not be taking care of the health care costs of illegal immigrants,” he said. “That money is coming right out of the pot that’s available for our citizens.” About 812,000 children are currently enrolled in California’s Healthy Families program and another 781,000 remain uninsured. Under the bill, California would have received about $1.4 million in federal funding. Lesley Cummings, executive director of the Managed Risk Medical Insurance Board, said that money would have allowed the state to fund its existing enrollment threshold – but not grow. “The amount of money that has been provided in the past has been insufficient to fund the caseloads,” Cummings said. If Bush’s veto stands, she warned, “we would be looking at a major shortfall in California of a long-term nature. “Our policymakers would have to take a long, hard look at the program and make some very difficult decisions,” he said. Bob Mulholland, spokesman for the California Democratic Party, said he believes some Republican House members could suffer politically from their vote. Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Pasadena, agreed. “I wouldn’t want to be a member of Congress in a contested election and be on the wrong side of that issue,” he said. But, analysts noted, given that contested House seats in California are a rarity, lawmakers are probably safe. “The impact will be more psychological than practical,” said Jack Pitney, political science professor at Claremont-McKenna College. “There aren’t very many seats at play, and it’s probably not going to shift any seats from one column to another.” lisa.friedman@langnews.com (202) 662-8731 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
