first_imgABC News(CHICAGO) — As Chicago police tried to break-up an anti-violence protest on Chicago expressway, several people agreed to be arrested.The protesters had planned to march on part of Chicago’s Kennedy Expressway Monday, aiming to disrupt traffic, but police asked everyone to leave the roadway and warned that anyone who did not leave would be arrested.The demonstration sought to bring more awareness to the gun violence epidemic in the city. Demonstrators also called for the resignation of Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel and urged more economic investment in the city’s poorer South and West sides, according to ABC station WLS in Chicago.Fired-up protesters, holding signs and chanting “Rahm Emanuel has got to go,” were met by a large presence of local and state police.Among those who agreed to be arrested Monday was protest organizer Rev. Gregory Livingston.“In order to get the attention and the ears that we need for the people’s needs we have to perform some kind of massive action,” Livingston said earlier to WLS.Gun violence in Chicago’s poorest communities has drawn national attention for a number of years. Since Sept. 2011, at least 174 people under the age of 17 have been killed, and another 1,665 shot, according to figures compiled by The Chicago Tribune.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

first_imgMichael Blygen’s hat-trick rescued Boys’ Town from embarrassment against lower leaguers Maxfield Park, in their Locker Room Sports KSAFA/Jackie Bell Knockout game at Collie Smith Complex yesterday.The home team surrendered a two-goal lead to the Major League outfit, which came back from two-nil down to level at 2-2. But two late goals from the former Tivoli Gardens striker saw the home team win 4-2.After a dour and goalless first half, Boys’ Town went in front just before the hour (59th) when Blygen flicked the ball over the Maxfield goalkeeper and it fell into the goal. Minutes later, Chavanney Willis made it 2-0 when he latched on to a through ball and slotted home.However, the visitors responded minutes later when Romaine Mullington was on the end of a good build-up to tap the ball past the Boys’ Town custodian. And before Boys’ Town realised what hit them, Nico Reynolds, Maxfield’s best player, equalised with a rasping shot from the edge of the box.Maxfield nearly went ahead in the 80th minute, but referee Carvel Banton adjudged that the ball had not crossed the goalline. Then on the counter, Boys’ Town went straight up field and Blygen capitalised on a loose ball to make it 3-2.The former Humble Lion and Rivoli player sealed the win two minutes from time when he broke away and calmly slotted home.Blygen spent the second-half of last season in the Dominican Republic, but missed most of that campaign through injury.”So far in the Premier League, things have been very disappointing. I hope this will be a stepping stone for me to get more playing time and deliver for my team and try to help them make the top four,” he said.”Last season, I joined Boys’ Town in January, then went on a trial overseas in Dominica Republic. I made the team and played three matches, but injury got the better of me. But this season I am back, so I am just taking it a step at a time and doing my best and see what happens.”So I hope this hat-trick gives coach more confidence in me because I have always worked hard, but the team has been up and down; we are not being consistent. So I hope that this is a stepping stone for me to get time on the pitch,” he reasoned.Coach Andrew Price is also hoping this is a turning point for his striker.”I hope that this will be a catalyst for him (Blygen) to assist us in the third round. Boys’ Town always play better football in the third round, and we are preparing ourselves assiduously to really make a good run and see where it leads us,” he declared.Yesterday’s resultsBarbican 1 UWI 0Waterhouse 2 Maverley/Hughenden 1Boys’ Town 4 Maxfield 2Today’s games3 p.m. August Town vs Bull Bay at UWI Mona Bowl3 p.m. Olympic Gardens vs Real Mona at Cling Cling Oval3 p.m. Rockfort vs Cavalier at Rockfort3 p.m. Cooreville Gardens vs Arnett Gardens at Duhaney Park7 p.m. Harbour View vs Tivoli Gardens at Harbour View Stadiumlast_img read more

first_imgNewly re-elected Donegal County Councillor Albert Doherty has called for the appropriate authorities to outline a plan for the ‘urgent repair work’ that is required at the Barrack Hill play park in Carndonagh. The Sinn Fein Councillor said it was now time for the Donegal County Council to undertake an immediate audit on the site to ensure the safety of parents and their children coming up to the summer holidays.Speaking to Donegal Daily, Cllr Doherty said: “The Barrack Hill play park has a powerful potential to deliver for the local area and over the course of the election and in the past grave concern has been raised about the safety of the play park and the condition that it is in currently. “I have asked and written to Donegal County Council and have called for the immediate maintenance and repairs that are required on the site,” he added.“It is now time for the authorities to sanction funding and proper investment for the Barrack Hill play park.”Doherty added that the main roadway to the play park was ‘far from inviting to family and children’ and was ‘unwelcoming’ for those who wished to pay their respects at the local graveyard nearby.He continued: “The area is also an entrance avenue for those who wish to pay their respects to their loved ones at the nearby graveyard and it is unwelcoming at present and I have outlined this to the council and there is an urgent need for significant snag list of repairs to be carried out. “We have the potential to make it a safe facility and make it an attractive invite to those who wish to use it.“I think as we approach the holiday season we will see more families looking to use the area and the priority must be for use to make the area safe for them and that is why maintenance must be carried out as soon as possible.”Immediate repairs needed for Barrack Hill play park – Cllr Doherty was last modified: June 5th, 2019 by Shaun KeenanShare 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:Carndonaghlast_img read more

first_imgSouth Africa has won the top global award at the United Nations Investment Promotion Awards for its excellence in boosting investment sectors that have social and economic benefits and help countries meet the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).The awards, organised by the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD), honours investment promotions agencies and their governments for their achievements, but also showcases best practices in attracting investment into SDG-related projects that can inspire investment promotion practitioners in developing and developed countries. The award was presented at a high-profile ceremony in the Assembly Hall of the Palais des Nations, Geneva, Switzerland, at the grand opening of the World Investment Forum yesterday.              South Africa was also recently named as the Global Destination of the Year at the 2018 Global Sourcing Association Awards ceremony alongside the Global Sourcing Summit in Cape Town. This award was South Africa’s fifth since 2012, and is further accolade and recognition of South Africa’s value proposition and credible offering that combines global best practice, a talented and scalable labour pool with government support to attract international outsourcing work into South Africa.“This prestigious global award indicates that South Africa’s industrial development is playing an important role towards its economic growth and our investment drive is already starting to make a significant contribution towards achieving its sustainable development goals. InvestSA is now globally recognised to compete in investment promotion and facilitation of large scale investments. As part of President Cyril Ramaphosa’s mobilisation drive to attract investments, these global awards signify and demonstrate that government is committed to improving its investment climate and service to investors,” says Davies                     The prestigious global award was presented to InvestSA for its role in facilitating two pioneering waste-to-nutrient recycling projects to up-cycle organic waste into natural, sustainable high-protein animal feed. Each project will offer much-needed jobs in local communities and is expected to save an annual 80 000 metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions by diverting organic waste from the landfill. The award was presented by the President of the 73rd session of the United Nations General Assembly, Ms María Fernanda Espinosa Garcés.Minister Davies says that the award is a commendable international recognition that partnerships play an important role in boosting investments in sectors as the award is for an intergovernmental projects facilitated together with the Gauteng provincial government, Technology Innovation Agency (TIA) and GreenCape.“These awards are indicative that our investment mobilisation efforts are making a valuable contribution to social and economic development. We are enhancing our investment facilitation service and InvestSA is able to fast track, unblock and reduce red tape in government through our one-stop shop approach,” says Davies.Issued by: The Department of Trade and Industrylast_img read more

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Black Swamp Conservancy is launching an initiative to support northwest Ohio’s next generation of farmers. The Northwest Ohio Farm Access Program will serve as an agriculture incubator to reduce the biggest hurdle facing beginning farmers — acquiring farmland. The initiative also aims at connecting them with training opportunities and assistance to increase local and sustainable food production.The Conservancy has received a grant from Toledo Community Foundation to establish the program, which is the first of its kind in Ohio.“This program will play a key role in helping to identify and support sources for local, sustainable food production in northwest Ohio,” said Keith Burwell, president of the Toledo Community Foundation.“We are dedicated to protecting our land and water resources, as well as our natural habitats, primarily through conservation easements,” said Rob Krain, Conservancy Executive Director. “This initiative is helping us to continue our ecological restoration efforts throughout northwest Ohio.” Over the past several years the Conservancy has completed several stream and wetland restoration projects, and earned the Ohio Wetlands Association’s Leader in Wetland Restoration award.“Ohio is losing an estimated 50 acres of farmland a day, and Ohio farmers are an average of 55 years old,” Krain said. “This is a critical time for farming in Ohio, as today’s farmers are producing commodities for export, while consumers are eating food imported from far away. As farmers plan to retire, possibly without heirs to whom they can pass on their land, aspiring farmers face limited access to land and then high land prices.”The Northwest Ohio Farm Access Program will be the conduit bringing these two groups together. “There is a growing interest in starting small scale, local agricultural businesses, but existing agricultural land is exceedingly consolidated. And when it is available, land is very expensive, especially as you get closer to population centers,” said Krain.  The Conservancy will identify and acquire farms that would be appropriate for these purposes, work to fund ecological restoration activities, and then connect aspiring farmers to this more affordable land.“We will also connect these new farmers to the business management and farming resources they will need through our connections with local businesses and services,” Krain said.This program will be beneficial to northwest Ohio by continuing and enhancing:• Acquisition and protection of prime farmland around northwest Ohio• Ecological restoration activities in regional farmland, particularly as it pertains to improved water quality• Establishment of agricultural properties as sustainable operations that grow foods for local consumption• Education of the community in sustainable farming practices and in the importance of access to locally-produced foods.For information about any aspect of the Northwest Ohio Farm Access Program, contact Program Manager Chris Collier at Black Swamp Conservancy, at [email protected], or by calling 419.833.1025.last_img read more
