“It should be close”. That is the view of seasoned Jamaica Scorpions all-rounder David Bernard Jr, as the team prepares to battle Barbados Pride, in the opening round of the second annual WICB Professional Cricket League. The clash, which bowls off today at Kensington Oval in Barbados, will see the Scorpions, for the first time in years, entering the contest as slight underdogs, despite boasting players, who have represented the West Indies in the past. To be led for the first time by recent Jamaica Under-19 captain, Paul Palmer Jr, the Scorpians has in their squad discarded Barbadian Kirk Edwards, Bernard Jr, spinner Nikita Miller, and wicketkeepers, Carlton Baugh Jr, and Chadwick Walton, who has don the colours of the regional side. However, with Barbados, playing at home, and boasting seven West Indies players, the task for the rebuilding Scorpions, could be a daunting one. Guided by West Indies opener Kraigg Brathwaite, the Pride has in their squad as West Indies representatives, fast bowlers Kemar Roach and Miguel Cummins, opener Shai Hope, wicketkeeper Shane Dowrich, left-arm spinner Jomel Warrican, and off-spinner, Ashley Nurse. “I think Barbados is as weary about us as we are of them as we are good team as they are a good team,” cited Bernard Jr. “However, over the years we have had good battles, and, often times we have got the better of them, so it should be close.” “It’s, therefore, about going out there, and play to the plans that we have set out,” he continued. Jamaica, second-from-bottom place finishers last season, are set to pivot their batting around Edwards, Baugh Jr, and Walton, who is likely to play as a batsman. The quartet, in-form based on the team’s preseason matches, will also be hoping that exciting opener John Campbell, and his new partner Palmer Jr, along with Andre McCarthy, can add in their runs scoring pursuits. Their bowling, the team’s mainstay in their last three failed title campaigns, is again slated to led by the consistent Miller with Jason Dawes and Marquino Mindley likely to provide fast bowling support. As for Barbados, runners-up last season behind Guyana Jaguars, their batting should stem around Brathwaite, Hope and Dowrich, who recently returned from Sri Lanka, and their bowling, Roach and Warrican, who too were on the Asian sub-continent.
A taxi driver was on Tuesday hauled before the courts for sexually assaulting a schoolgirl.Nowrang Samaroo, called “Fenton” of Canefield, East Canje, Berbice appeared before Magistrate Peter Hugh charged with sexual assault.It is alleged that on January 8, 2019, at Vryheid Road, New Amsterdam, Samaroo sexually assaulted the teenager while she was a passenger in his motor car. Samaroo, who was unrepresented, pleaded not guilty to the charge.Police Prosecutor Inspector Bernard Brown had no objections to the accused being granted bail. He was placed on $75,000 bail and would make his next court appearance on January 29, 2019.It was reported that on the day in question, the teen plunged out of the suspect’s car after he attempted to rip off her clothes.The teenager reportedly boarded the car outside her school with the intention of heading home. However, during the journey, the driver allegedly started to make sexual advances at the teen. Soon after, he reached across to the teen and started to take off her clothes, but the teen opened the door and jumped out.She was picked up by another driver and taken to the Police Station where a complaint was lodged.
Crucial mistakes cost Hull City three points, according to manager Steve Bruce, as his side were defeated 3-0 at home to Newcastle United.Three league defeats in a row now sees the Tigers sitting in the relegation zone and the 54-year-old admitted his players simply weren’t good enough against their opponents.And the boss insisted they must give more if they are to stave off the threat of demotion to the Championship.“As I’ve said repeatedly at this level, you can’t make the mistakes we made – for the first two goals in particular,” said Bruce. “Unfortunately in the last couple of games we’ve bought it in to our game.“Confidence and a little bit of spirit is what we need to rediscover. We’ve got some good players here who aren’t performing to the level that I’m used to seeing. That’s what being a Premier League footballer is all about, you have to find the resilience or the spirit that a club like ours needs.“It’s frustrating as we’ve had 18 shots and 12 on target, where they’ve had four on target and scored three – there lies the difference.”

Johnson Drake Relays Director. “We saw companies of every size participate with employees at every level in the organization celebrating their achievement together on the Blue Oval.

This week I am going to give you three recipes that you can use to make a healthy and delicious, day of food.The one thing that I hear time and time again is that people find it hard to make healthy food taste good.So, here is a full day of food It has everything from breakfast to dinner and not only is it healthy AND tastes great, but I have also got the calories, protein, carbs and fat worked out for you. These recipes are a favourite of my Rushe Fitness members in our Lean in 2019 program. The next one starts on AUGUST 6TH and you can book your place through the link belowhttps://www.rushefitness.ie/class/lean-in-2019-gym-plan/. 1st up is breakfast SLOW COOKED APPLE PIE OATS INGREDIENTS100 grams of steel-cut or Irish oats400 millilitres of unsweetened almond milk2 medium apples, chopped into 1cm cubes1 teaspoon of coconut oil 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon¼ teaspoon of ground or freshly grated nutmeg2 tablespoons of maple syrupA squeeze of lemon juice INSTRUCTIONSAdd all the ingredients to your slow cooker. Stir the mixture together until well combined and then cook it on a low heat for 8 hours or a high heat for 4 hours. By this point the oatmeal mixture will have thickened and will be the consistency of porridge.Give the oatmeal a good stir and then finish with your favourite toppings. We recommend peanut butter and chopped apples but anything goes well with this breakfast classic including a little protein powder if you wish to increase the protein content.The oatmeal can be kept in the fridge for up to one week. The dish can be reheated in the microwave or on the stove but keep in mind that the oats will continue to absorb liquid when in the fridge so we recommend adding a splash of almond milk to the mixture to loosen it up.180 CALORIES – 5G PROTEIN – 31G CARBS – 5G FAT – 5G FIBRENext on the menu will be lunch and we will be having a light lunch because dinner will be fit for a King.SALMON BURGERS WITH AVOCADO SALSAINGREDIENTS450 grams of salmon fillet50 grams of panko breadcrumbs1 egg2 spring onions, finely sliced½ poblano pepper, deseeded and slicedThe juice of 1 lemon or 1 lime½ teaspoon of salt¼ teaspoon of black pepperAvocado salsa:1 large ripe avocado, peeled, stoned and chopped½ poblano pepper, deseeded and sliced2 spring onions, finely slicedThe juice of 1 lemon or 1 lime½ teaspoon of salt¼ teaspoon of black pepperINSTRUCTIONSBegin by skinning and chopping the salmon fillet into small chunks. In a large bowl, combine the salmon, panko breadcrumbs, poblano pepper, egg, spring onions, lemon or lime juice, salt and pepper.Once all the ingredients are well-mixed use your hands or a large spoon to divide the mixture into patties.The easiest way to get a consistent shape and size is to mould them with your hands.Place the patties on a medium-hot griddle pan, or alternatively an outdoor barbeque to give it a smoky flavour, and grill for around four minutes on each side until the salmon is cooked through.The avocado salsa is simple but effective – all you have to do is combine the REST OF THE ingredients in a large bowl and mix well. Top the salmon burgers with the salsa and serve with or without a bun.353 KCAL – 23G FAT – 25G PROTEIN – 12G CARB – 4G FIBRE Now we come to dinner and as we have been good all morning, we are going to treat ourselves.Who doesn’t love a good curry?CHICKEN KORMA INGREDIENTS½ white onion, diced2 garlic cloves, crushed200 grams of chicken breast fillets, cut into 3cm pieces2 teaspoon of sunflower oil1 tablespoon of butter1 teaspoon of ground turmeric1 tablespoon of garam masala½ teaspoon of chilli powder½ tablespoon of caster sugar125 grams of low fat plain yoghurt30 millilitres of coconut milk20 grams of flaked almondsINSTRUCTIONSBegin by preheating your oven to 180°C (350°F).Heat the oil and butter in a pan and gently fry the onion for around 3 minutes until it has turned translucent.Then add the garlic and fry until both have begun to caramelise. At this point, add the turmeric, garam masala, chilli powder and sugar to the pan and let the spices roast for around 1 minute, or until they smell incredible.Once the onion and spice mixture is cooked, stir in the yoghurt and coconut milk. Let this gently simmer for a few minutes and remove from the heat.Place the pieces of chicken into a casserole dish and pour over the yoghurt sauce. Cover the dish and bake in the oven for around 30 minutes until the chicken is cooked and is well marinated in the sauce.Before serving, sprinkle flaked almonds over the curry.400 KCAL – 21G FAT – 35G PROTEIN – 18G CARBS – 2G FIBREAnd there you have it.A healthy and delicious day of food and everything worked out for you so you can get great results while still eating great tasting food.Give them a try and be sure to let me know what you think of them.#Leanin2019My Members get recipes like these and more in our Lean in 2019 program.The next one starts on AUGUST 6TH and you can sign up now through the link below.https://www.rushefitness.ie/class/lean-in-2019-gym-plan/DD Fitness: Real healthy recipes was last modified: August 2nd, 2019 by Emmet RusheShare 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)
ALAMEDA — Jon Gruden wants to make sure you understand Nathan Peterman is just a practice-squad quarterback.The Raiders mainly signed him because Derek Carr’s backup, A.J. McCarron, is in Alabama with his wife, who gave birth to Cash McCarron on Tuesday. In McCarron’s place, Peterman will run scout team as the Raiders prepare for Monday Night Football against the Broncos.“Not quite sure when he’s going to be back,” Gruden said of McCarron. “That leaves us with one quarterback.
