Vice President Joseph N. Boakai is expected to lead an array of government officials to sign the Book of Condolence for former South African President Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela.Mr. Mandela, the founding President of South Africans’ inclusive democratic nation, departed the world at around 20:50 GMT on the 5th of December. He was 95.According to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA), the signing of the Book of Condolence will take place Tuesday, December 10, at the South African Embassy in Congo Town, commencing at 10 a. m. According to the protocol for the ceremony, by 10:45 a. m., the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Rep. Alex Tyler, and Members of the Legislature are expected to be on hand to sign the Book; while Chief Justice Francis Korkpor and Associate Justices of the Supreme Court Bench will sign the Book of Condolence at 11: 45 a.m. Thereafter, a National Memorial Service will be held at 2:00 p.m. at the Centennial Memorial Pavilion on Ashmum Street.The Government of Liberia, in collaboration with the South African Embassy near Monrovia, is hosting the Memorial and Reflection Service in honor of the late Nelson Mandela, former President of South Africa and Eminent Statesman; an Advocate for peace, social justice, and freedom for humanity. Today’s memorial service is being held simultaneously with the South African Government, which is also having a memorial service for their fallen hero at the First National Bank (FNB) Stadium in Johannesburg, South Africa.At least over 60 world leaders, including President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, US President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama, and France’s President Francois Hollande, have announced that they are going to attend Mr. Mandela’s state memorial service Tuesday, December 10, in Johannesburg. President George Walker Bush and Laura Bush, President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hilary Clinton, Prince Charles, British Prime Minister David Cameron and others are also among the 60 heads of state and government that so far have consented to be in attendance at the memorial service and state funeral, which is to be held in Qunu, Eastern Cape.In Mandela’s autobiography, “Long Walk to Freedom,” Qunu, according to Mandela, is where he spent the happiest moments of his childhood. This small rural village in South Africa’s Eastern Cape Province will be the final resting place for Mr. Mandela, whose indelible marks will be engraved on the pages of history ad infinitum (forevermore). He will be buried in Qunu on December 15, 2013. Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
By Brandon CorletteDespite proving to be an excellent squad which recently cultivated an incomparable 11-0 winning streak, the Guyana Amazon Warriors (GAW) have looming another record on which they definitely don’t want to expound.Another final, another defeatIt was exactly one week ago, on a Saturday morning, when the country was infected with the cricket fever. Every radio station, television station and corner shop kept the buzz alive as they supported the GAW. The entire nation was hyped, and GAW were aiming to extend their unbeaten run. The Barbados Tridents, however, silenced Shoaib Malik and his team at the Brian Lara Cricket Academy in Tarouba Trinidad on a Saturday evening.Without doubt, GAW are the best team in the history of CPL in terms of consistency. It is a notable record in 2019, and it came when GAW became the first team to win 11 matches in a row. The previous best was seven wins, which was completed by Jamaica Tallawahs across two seasons. However, it remains an untold story why the GAW have not claimed a Hero CPL title after making the finals on five occasions.Disappointment enveloped the nation when GAW failed to cross the finish lineAnother evidence which (GAW) proved their consistency was qualifying for all of the playoffs in the history of the Hero CPL. From inception of this tournament, they have made it to five finals, and finished the contest as the runner-up team.GAW 5-0 in CPL FinalsReflecting on the inaugural CPL tournament in 2013, the GAW team lost to Jamaica Tallawahs by seven wickets in the final. In that encounter, GAW scored 128-5 and the Chris Gayle-led Tallawahs team cruised to victory, ending on 129-3. That match saw the infamous accusation made by Guyanese fans that an unnamed player “sold out the game”.He had a brilliant tournament with the ball, but the Jamaican native who was playing for the Guyanese franchise had bowled an unforgettable over that yielded 20 runs and included 11 extras (wides).In 2014, the GAW reached their second final in as many years, and lost to Barbados Tridents that time around. The match ended prematurely with rain and the title dreams were once more shattered.GAW continued to be the most consistent teama in the CPL, and in the third season they qualified for the playoff but lost to arch-rivals, Trinbago Knight Riders (formerly Red Steel in 2015). In the 2016 CPL season, GAW lost again in another final against the Jamaica Tallawahs. Playing a consistent brand of cricket throughout the tournament, GAW produced their worst performance in the final when they scored 93 all out.Tallawahs lifted their second CPL title under Gayle’s captaincy, while GAW were the runner-up team as they relived the 2013 CPL final which they lost to the same opposition. Question marks continued to hit the horizon: Will the GAW find the right combination to win a CPL title?Motoring along in the 2017 CPL, GAW eased their way into the playoffs, but Trinbago Knight Riders (TKR) knocked the Guyanese franchise out in Qualifier 2. GAW posted 159-6 and Colin Munro’s blitz led the TKR team past the jaded GAW outfit.In the 2018 final, CPL giants GAW and TKR met at the Brian Lara Stadium in Tarouba. GAW lost again in another final; after posting 147-9 in their 20 overs, TKR raced away to victory, ending on 150-2 in 17.3 overs.In the most recent final, GAW lost to Barbados Tridents by 27 runs. Tridents racked up 171-6 in 20 overs, while GAW could muster only 144-9 in 20 overs. This was the first poor performance by GAW in 2019, after they had won 11 matches in a row. The spinners had an ordinary outing, with the exception of Imran Tahir; and the pacers, with the exception of Ben Laughlin, yielded more than eight runs an over.Brandon King, who led the batting all season, scored 43 for GAW, but the other batsmen that had a fruitful season choked on the big stage. The unresolved question remains: after all that consistency shown over the years, why have the GAW not clinched the CPL Championship Trophy?
Defender, charity worker, legend – Is anyone nicer than Linvoy Primus?That’s the question Max Rushden and Barry Glendenning have asked a host current and former professional footballers over the months on talkSPORT.The general consensus – No.The Warm Up duo even go as far as saying they are singlehandedly responsible for the Portsmouth hero’s soon-to-be awarded MBE (where he will meet the Queen, who may be the only person to come close to rivalling Linvoy’s niceness.)Don’t believe us?

With the comings and goings all finalised and the pre-season work all complete, Ollie Horgan and his Finn Harps side will be looking forward to the serious stuff getting underway this weekend as they open the season with a trip to Tolka Park on Friday night to face First Division title favourites Shelbourne. Harps endured a disappointing end to last season with defeats in five of their final six league games. Ironically, their only victory in that run of games came against Friday’s opponents when they ended the Dublin sides’ fading automatic promotion hopes with a 3-2 victory at Finn Park.Harps have kept much of the same squad as they had last season, but there have been a few comings and goings as would be expected as a new season dawns. “We have made a number of changes to our squad since last year with six players in and seven out,” said Horgan. “Caoimhin Bonner and Sean McCarron went to Cliftonville, Conor Wynn signed for Galway, Jordan Loftus is back with Castlebar, Carol Tiofack is with a side in Australia, Shaun Patton went to Derry and Pat McCann is playing football in Spain.“All those lads will be a loss to us but we have replaced them with Ciaran Gallagher, Raymond Foy, Mathew Crossan and Rory Keating who have played with us before as well as Tony McNamee and Regan Donelon,” said Horgan.Harps had a decent run of results in pre-season, with their only loss coming against Sligo Rovers at the Showground a couple of weeks ago. Most of the games were against Premier Division opposition including Galway United, Cork City, Irish League side Coleraine and Derry City. The match against the latter was the final game of pre-season last week but was abandoned at half-time with Harps leading 1-0.“Pre-season has gone ok,” said Horgan. “We lost a session at the start due to snow and probably the only disappointment was the lack of time training/playing on grass pitches due to weather and also only getting to play a half in Derry at the weekend due to rain. Sligo gave us a lesson couple of weeks ago with their quality of play and also quality of work rate.” Now entering his second season in charge at the club, Horgan said that his aim is to make improvements on last season’s league form which seen them finish in fifth place but way off the points tally of the four clubs ahead of them.“Obviously we hope to improve on last year but that is easier said than done,” said the Harps boss.“The likes of Cobh and Waterford have seriously improved, Shelbourne finished twenty points ahead of us last year and Wexford 14 points. Athlone and UCD have good sides with experience down the middle of their teams. We will see how the first series of games go and see where we are then.”So, Friday night will see Harps kick-off their 47th consecutive season of League of Ireland football with a trip that is actually one of their closest away games this season – despite the home grounds of the two clubs being 140 miles apart (Athlone is Harps’ shortest away league game this season which is a journey that is only 10 miles shorter than Friday’s).It doesn’t get much tougher than Shelbourne away to start with but we have to go there sometime,” said Horgan as he looked ahead to the trip to Tolka. “They finished twenty points ahead of us last year so it will be a big task to get anything out of there. “Shelbourne always play good football and have added to their squad since last year with the addition of experienced players in Philip Hughes, Daire Doyle and Craig Walsh as well as very talented younger players in Evan Ozam and Sean Heaney.”Gareth Harkin and Ciaran Coll sit the match out through suspensions carried over from last season, while Packie Mailey is still a few weeks away from full fitness and misses out.After the trip to Dublin, Harps are back on the road again on Monday night when they make the trip to Galway United in the first round of this season’s EA Sports League Cup (kick-off 7.45pm / Eamonn Deacy Terryland Park).———————————————————————————————————- TEAM NEWSSuspended: Gareth Harkin, Ciaran Coll.Doubtful: None.Injured: Packie Mailey.FORM GUIDE (last six league games)Finn Harps: L-L-L-W-L-L (3 pts)Shelbourne: D-W-W-L-D-D (9 pts)——————————————————————————————————————————————————-RECORD AGAINST SHELBOURNE (All competitions)Friday’s game will be the 84th meeting of the two clubs, and the 45th to be played in Dublin.Total Games: 83 (44 at Shelbourne)Harps Wins: 33 (13 at Shelbourne)Shels Wins: 32 (23 at Shelbourne)Draws: 18 (8 at Shelbourne)Harps Goals: 111 (46 at Shelbourne)Shels Goals: 124 (76 at Shelbourne)LAST 10 GAMES v SHELBOURNE02-Apr-10 Shelbourne 1-0 Finn Harps (First Division)25-Jun-10 Finn Harps 1-1 Shelbourne (First Division)17-Sep-10 Shelbourne 3-1 Finn Harps (First Division)29-Apr-11 Shelbourne 1-0 Finn Harps (First Division)16-Jul-11 Finn Harps 0-3 Shelbourne (First Division)25-Oct-11 Shelbourne 4-0 Finn Harps (First Division)04-Apr-14 Shelbourne 2-0 Finn Harps (First Division)23-May-14 Finn Harps 1-1 Shelbourne (First Division)25-Jul-14 Shelbourne 1-1 Finn Harps (First Division)26-Sep-14 Finn Harps 3-2 Shelbourne (First Division)LAST TIME v SHELBOURNE at Tolka Park25th July 2014.SHELBOURNE 1 Gareth Couglan 61 (pen).FINN HARPS 1 Sean McCarron 33.Shelbourne: Greg Murray; Brian Gannon, Lee Desmond, Adam O’Connor, Philip Hand; Gary Dempsey, Jake Donnelly; Dylan Connolly, Gareth Coughlan, Sean Russell (Adam McDonnell 46); Lee Duffy (Dylan Cashin 79).

Looking for a hairstyle refresh? This week, the team at Patrick Gildea Centre of Excellence Letterkenny give a guide to great haircuts which flatter all ages.We get so many guests looking to enhance their youthful look, from colour placement to flattering cuts there are many ways to achieve this depending on your face shape and skin tone.Stylist Irene says “A well-cut hairstyle that flatters your face shape won’t just make you feel great, but it’ll keep you looking young. From adding a fringe to getting a classic crop, be inspired by our favorite celebrity women over 40.” Here are some of Irene’s favourite cuts from some of the most glamorous Hollywood starlets:Layered Bob – Cate Blanchett This classic style is the perfect choice for women who want to look chic and elegant without a lot of maintenance. The great thing is that there is a bob suited to most face shapes and hair textures. Chin length bobs are perfect for petite and angular faces while round faces should opt for slightly more length. Jennifer Aniston and Cate BlanchettLong and Straight – Jennifer Aniston Jennifer Aniston has been on best hair lists since she rocked the famous “Rachel Cut” in the 90’s and her long layered locks are no different. The good news is that this cut works on nearly everyone! It’s straight with layers all around the front, longer layers at the back and blunt ends. Keep the hair looking healthy by not thinning out the ends too much. Jennifer GarnerLoose Waves- Jennifer GarnerJennifer Garner’s simple but striking loose waves help to soften her defined jawline. Add some honey-coloured highlights like Jennifer for extra lustre.Layered Razor Cut – Halle Berry Geometrically razor cut hair allowing a side fringe to creep over one eye. The style highlights delicate features and if you have razor sharp cheekbones this is the perfect cut for you to show them off. Irene says although this is a short cut you can still have fun styling it bringing an edgier feel to it with a Mohawk style or a sleek and elegant style whichever matches your mood! Short With A Twist – Julie Bowen This is a great length because it gives you so many options and is fun to play with since the focus is the length itself. You can add waves, wear it straight, sweep your fringe across your face, sleeked back or tousled there are plenty of choices and because of the shorter length, it won’t drag the face downIrene says “whatever the length and style of cut you choose at any age–it should flatter, soften and frame your face, enhance your cut with a beautiful colour, one that will compliment your skin tone, depending on whether you are summer, winter, autumn or spring!”If you would like to book a complimentary consultation to discuss a cut and colour to enhance your face shape and skin tone call us on 00353749125476 or book online by clicking here: http://www.patrickgildea.ie/book-online/.
