Laurie Foster: JAAA drops the baton

first_imgThe fast-approaching Christmas season is traditionally a time of good cheer, the seeking of blessings from a Supreme Being, consumption of an enormous amount of food, and the exchange of gifts. Although the act also follows a path of tradition, the Jamaica Athletics Administrative Association (JAAA), through its president, delivered its own gift of another body blow to the sport. One can almost hear in response shouts of ‘What’s new?’ or ‘Nothing better was expected’. Dr Warren Blake, Jamaica’s track and field head man, is once again under the cosh. Blake is widely accepted and acclaimed as an orthopaedic surgeon of the highest quality. However, from the comments being voiced – including social media – his latest action does not quite make the cut (pun intended). The ‘proof of the pudding’ in making what could be deemed a harsh criticism is inherent in a statement to the media recently. The stage was a press conference to announce nominees for the annual Golden Cleats Awards put on by the JAAA. On the world stage, Russia had been banned from international competition by the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF). The move was effected after investigations by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) found them to be involved in state-supported violation of the code. Many of their top performing athletes at the global level were facing the loss of medals won. As a sequel to this, the Russian city of Kazan was stripped of its host status for the 2016 World Junior Championships. A replacement venue was to be announced after a new bidding process. SEEKING APPROVAL The JAAA had announced its intention to seek approval to be hosts. Success would mean that the black, green, and gold would be blessed with the prestige and privilege of so doing for the second time. Few will forget at the first staging in 2002, the comments of the then IAAF president Lamine Diack. He described it as “the best ever”. The Senegalese has since been disgraced – fingered by the same WADA probe for accepting a bribe of €1 million for culpability in drug test results concealment. Blake seized the opportunity at the awards press conference to issue a statement on the progress of the bid. He spoke of the local bid being withdrawn. It carried a price tag of US$10 million. Also mentioned, presumably as a reason for the withdrawal, was the likelihood of such a figure being realised. There was no mention in the excerpt of the interview, carried by national media, of any consultation prior to the decision to ‘lock it down’. One was left with the feeling that not even the Government had had an input in the verdict. If that is the case, several questions must now be asked. UNILATERAL DECISION? Was Blake’s decision really a unilateral one, taken without giving an ear to the battery of track and field savvy that surrounds him? One sincerely hopes not, but if that was the case, how could they come up with what must surely be a lame decision. It clearly has not factored in the increase prestige that adheres to the country’s image since the heroics of Beijing 2008 and sustained thereafter. Would that not have attracted the financial support from investors always in search of embellishment to their own profile? Yes, it is also Olympic year, with advertising spoils to be shared with the Rio spectacle. But where are the experts and bright marketers? Could not there be a combo where those interested in the spend could invest in both and widen their reach? Again, what about the Government? If they had a say in the matter, why not say so? At least that would have focused the scrutiny elsewhere. For feedback: E-mail lauriefoster2012@gmail.com.last_img read more

Diamond Debate | No stopping mighty McLeod

first_imgRaymond Graham (RG): Fans are in for something special in the men’s 110m hurdles as, despite it being May, this is definitely a preview of what’s to come at the World Championships, as the best sprint hurdlers in the world will line up at the start in Shanghai tomorrow. AndrÈ Lowe (AL): The 110m hurdles always delivers exciting action, and with many of the big names turning up in Shanghai, another fast time is promised on a track known to produce impressive times. RG: Omar McLeod will remember a year ago at the same venue, where he posted a world-leading 12.98 seconds to defeat his countryman, Hansle Parchment, but this time around, he will have a handful. Parchment will be back, but McLeod’s biggest challenge will come from Orlando Ortega, David Oliver, Aries Merritt and Sergey Shubenkov, who is back after a year out of competition. AL: It will be interesting to see what Shubenkov does here against a top field. McLeod was excellent at the Drake Relays in truly miserable conditions, and the Olympic champion already looks unstoppable. Despite the quality he has to face, he knows that he’s the man. They know it, too. He’s going to be hard to beat here. RG: Yes, I also thought that he was unstoppable last year, but in Lausanne, he ran into Ortega, who defeated him, and the Spanish athlete is no chicken. Remember, he was top of the world in 2015, when he had a world best of 12.94 seconds in Paris. AL: That was 2015. The world has belonged to McLeod since 2016, and by the looks of things, he’s keeping the key in 2017 as well. Ortega is the obvious threat, but his 13.95 seconds, ran a few days ago, isn’t going to scare anyone. Parchment had that injury issue ahead of the Olympics. This is a good test for him to gauge where he is. A positive result here and he will be back in the conversation. RG: And why are we ignoring the American duo of Oliver and Merritt? Remember both have big titles in the past. While I think McLeod is the man to beat, I am not going all out on this as Shubenkov, the defending World champion, is hungry and will want to make a mark as he aims to defend his title in London this summer. AL: I’m not ignoring them. I see them bright and clear – running for second place. Given his dominance in the event, the others will have to convince me that they can beat McLeod. His raw speed and the suggestion that he has adjusted flawlessly to his new seven-step approach means more fluidity and more bad news for his rivals. McLeod for the win, Merritt second. Third place, who knows? RG: McLeod is, no doubt, the fastest in the field. He should lead early, and once he negotiates the obstacles well, he will be hard to overtake. With the expected competition, a sub-13 seconds is in store once again.last_img read more

PET OWNERS WARNED OF RISKS TO ANIMALS IN HOT WEATHER

first_imgTODAY is going to be one of the hottest days of the year so far – and Donegal SPCA has issued advice to pet owners over the rising heat.Temperatures are rising and the beach is the place to go; and the park, and the lakes. But hot weather can pose a real threat to pets.Here are some tips from DSPCA on caring for pets in hot weather: Animals simply CANNOT tolerate extreme temperatures; so, as a responsible pet owner you must make absolutely sure that your pet is safe.Never, ever leave your animal in a car. Pet owners should know the dangers of leaving any animal in a hot car; even for just a few minutes. This particularly applies to dogs. Dogs love to travel in a car and it’s tempting to let them go to the supermarket with you when buying supplies for that all important barbeque. But don’t leave your dog inside, even with the windows open.Temperatures do not have to be in the 20s for a car bound dog to be in serious trouble. Even at much lower temperatures, even under a cloudless sky, the humidity inside the car turns it into a sauna.Remember this: Research has shown that if it’s a sunny 21C, the temperature in a car, with the windows open, rises at least 10C degrees in 30 minutes. Temperatures in air conditioned cars can reach the same temperature as outside within just five minutes of being turned off.A parked car in hot, sweltering weather is a killer! This is what will happen: On a hot day, it takes a matter of minutes for a dog to end up organ-damaged or dead!Watch out for warning signsIf your dog pants quickly, looks very tired or collapses, it could be suffering from heatstroke. Put it in a cool, shady spot and spray its body with cool water, or give it a cool bath immediately. Never cool your dog so much that he/she begins to shiver. Let your dog drink small amounts of cool water. Contact a veterinary surgeon urgently for further advice as heatstroke can be fatal.Therefore, the advice is to leave your dog at home. Place his bed/kennel in a shaded area and he will automatically go to that shaded area when he needs rest from the hot sun. Leave them plenty of water and leave the water in the shaded area. Check their water bowl regularly to make sure there is plenty of fresh water.If you are taking your dog out with you in the car, make sure you have him well strapped in. Purchase a car safety harness for your dog. This is for your safety as much as theirs! They are available in any good pet shop or from the DSPCA gift shop. Cats should always be in pet carriers when travelling in the car.One small jolt in traffic can have a very sad result for an unsecured pet. Also, if you’re driving a car, and are forced to brake suddenly, an unsecured animal can be thrown forward, hitting you in the back of the head or neck, causing painful injuries to both you and your pet.Make sure the car window is open while driving; enough to give your animal plenty of ventilation. Don’t leave your dog in the car if you need to leave your vehicle. If you know you will be leaving the dog alone in the car don’t bring your dog with you, leave them at home! When walking your dog, remember there are areas and times during the day where temperatures soar. It makes sense to walk your dog in the early morning or late evening, when temperatures are lower. Not only are peak times uncomfortable for them, but the hot concrete can actually burn their sensitive paws. Never excert your dog during hot weather.Always take along water both for yourself and for your dog. Stop frequently to allow both of you to have a refreshing drink. Many domestic animals do not sweat to keep cool. Dogs, for instance, have no sweat glands and can only lose heat by panting. Make sure they always have plenty of water to help them keep cool.Tip: Temperatures are at their highest during midday and 3pm. Try to avoid these times.Keep your dog & cat groomed: This is always a good idea but particularly important during the hot weather. If your pet has long hair then that’s just like you wearing a fur coat in 30C degrees of heat! It’s not comfortable for you! Regular brushing also helps remove the winter undercoat and can help your pet better regulate his body temperature. It’s not comfortable for your pet!However, you do need to remember that if your dog has been trimmed, they are susceptible to sun burn. Sunscreen should be applied to dogs and cats with white tipped ears and noses.Tip: Children’s sunscreen, Factor 50+ is particularly good.Keep an eye out for insects: We protect ourselves from insects during the hot weather, but we sometimes forget our furry friends are also at risk. Make sure your dog and cat get their regular flea and tick preventative. And… keep that first aid kit close by in case of bee and wasp stings.Water Safety: If your dog likes the water, he will instinctively want to swim during the hot weather. Please put a life jacket on your dog. You can never be too cautious when it comes to your beloved pet and water safety.FOR THE BIRDSPlease do not leave bird cages or fish tanks on windowsills! Move them into the shade. Cages or aviaries located on sunny patios or in courtyards can become like furnaces as a result of radiated heat from the floor and wall surfaces.BUNNIES & OTHER SMALL FURRIESDo not leave rabbit hutches in the full glare of the sun. Move them to a shaded area now! The same applies to guinea pigs & ferrets. Warning! Bunnies are prone to fly strike (maggots). This can be fatal. Maggots can enter your bunnies’ bottom when they have a poo and this can kill your pet within 24 hours. Make sure your bunnies’ bottoms are clear of feaces. (Poo).FISHFish can have just as many problems in warm weather as other animals. Indoor fish should be kept out of direct sunlight. Change the water and keep it clear of algae which spreads much faster on sunny days.Fish ponds in the garden should be fitted with a suitable pump and filter to reduce the build up of waste products and to promote good water circulation.WILDLIFEBe wildlife-friendly in the garden – take care when using a lawn-mower or strimmer and keep toxic pesticides out of reach of animals.Disturb bonfires before burning garden rubbish.HORSESPlease provide ample, fresh, clean water for your horse or pony. Check buckets and troughs daily and make sure they are not contaminated with bird droppings or insect larvae.Remember, ponies and foals may have trouble reaching to the bottom of a shallowly filled trough so make sure everyone can reach the water!Sponge your horse down gently, making sure not to get water in his ears or on his face.If you must work/ride your horse, make sure to do it early in the morning or late in the evening when the temperature is cooler.After riding your horse, cool him down slowly. Loosen girths or belly bands immediately and offer sips of cool –not cold – water and walk your horse slowly. His muscles are more likely to stiffen if he is allowed to stand. Moving his muscles will dissipate heat more effectively for the animal.Make sure your horse has a shaded place to rest – away from the sun.Apply sunscreen (Factor 50+) to horses with pink noses to prevent sunburn.Hot weather means the grass growth slows down and the pasture quality declines. Make sure your horse is getting fodder and maybe you could supplement if necessary.Hot weather brings biting insects and these can keep your horse pacing or stomping. Make sure they have plenty of field shelter.Leaving any animal without adequate food, water or shade is a serious offence and will be considered an act of cruelty.PET OWNERS WARNED OF RISKS TO ANIMALS IN HOT WEATHER was last modified: July 19th, 2016 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)last_img read more

ST COLUMBA’S COME UP SHORT IN SCHOOLS SOCCER SEMI-FINAL

first_imgAll Ireland School First Years Semi FinalColáiste Phadraig, CBS Lucan  4-1 St. Columba’s College, StranorlarSt Columba’s College Stranorlar suffered  heartbreak this afternoon when their First Years were beaten in the All Ireland Semi final by 4 goals to 1 by Coláiste Phadraig, CBS Lucan at  Kingspan Century Park , Monaghan. Columba’s got off to the best possible start when a Gareth Doherty free was tucked away by Dewi Bolger Moore for 8 yards out after just 6 minutes on the clock. But Lucan levelled the tie 2 minutes later  when Dylan Hayes scored direct from a free kick and they went in at half time 2-1 to the good through Tom Prior.Two more goals in the 52nd and 55th  minutes from Titi Baddington  and an Og killed any chance of St Columba’s getting back into the game and a possible final place against either Crescent College Comprehensive, Limerick or Rice College, Westport in a final down for decision next Wednesday afternoon.
