Whether he’s good enough or not is the question, but I do think he’ll show up.“Improbable has always been my personal favorite, particularly because he’s a flashy work horse, a pretty chestnut. He’s always done everything rather easily. I think there’s still a mental upside. Baffert tried blinkers in the Arkansas Derby, but he’ll take them off Saturday.“I think Bob’s probably got him where he wants him. He’s got more upside than some of the others.“Omaha Beach has been the flashiest workhorse you’ve ever seen, and that’s since last summer at Del Mar. He caught all our stopwatches every time. The switch to dirt obviously woke him up, or maybe he’s matured, too.” Roadster surprised me a bit; he just keeps coming at you. I liked his last gate drill (1:13.60 on April 20). He seems like he’s held his weight well since the Santa Anita Derby when he ran down Game Winner.“I could see Roadster winning, but he needs the right trip, although he’s exceeded my expectations along the way, and maybe that will continue.“If I had to pick one horse now before the draw for post positions Tuesday, it would beImprobable. He’s always been my favorite.“But I hope a horse from California wins. We sure could use it.”SOI PHET DEFENDS TITLE IN CRYSTAL WATER STAKESSoi Phet returns in the Crystal Water Stakes today, almost a year after posting a 47-1 upset in the race when he won by a nose under Alonso Quinonez, who is back aboard.Now 11, the California-bred Tizbud gelding trained by Leonard Powell has not raced since last Sept. 8, when sixth in the E.B. Johnston Stakes at Los Alamitos. Soi Phet was believed to be the oldest horse ever to win a stakes at Santa Anita when he captured the Crystal Water at age 10 last year.The 42-year-old Powell felt Soi Phet had considerable upside when he claimed him for $16,000 at Hollywood Park on May 23, 2013.“At the time, he had all his conditions,” Powell explained. “He had only won a maiden 20 ($20,000), he was a non-winner of two (races), he was a Cal-bred, it was the spring of 2013 and the Del Mar meet was coming up with very generous purses.“When I took him, it was because he had conditions left and I felt I could move him up.” Eight stakes wins and a million dollars in earnings later, Powell was assuredly right.The Crystal Water, race five of nine: The Street Fighter, Aaron Gryder, 5-1; Hardboot, Victor Espinoza, 4-1; Tule Fog, Brice Blanc, 12-1; Brandothebartender, Joe Talamo, 5-2; Soi Phet, Alonso Quinonez, 4-1; Accountability, Drayden Van Dyke, 6-1; and The Hunted, Tiago Pereira, 7-2.IRISH-BRED DEBUTS FOR SADLER IN SINGLETARYJasikan makes his U.S. debut in Sunday’s $100,000 Singletary Stakes for three-year-olds at a mile on turf and John Sadler is expecting a solid performance from the Irish-bred colt recently purchased by principal clients Kosta and Peter Hronis.“We bought him last fall in Ireland,” the trainer said of the son of Bated Breath, who has had only two career starts, both in his native country, winning under 131 pounds as the favorite against 12 rivals last Nov. 9.“He’s a really good-looking horse and we’re ready to get him started.”The race is named for Singletary, winner of the 2004 Breeders’ Cup Mile under David Flores at 16-1 for trainer Don Chatlos at Lone Star Park. The horse was named for legendary Chicago Bears’ linebacker Mike Singletary.The Singletary, race five of nine with a 1 p.m. first post time: Rijeka, Kent Desormeaux, 7-2; Jasikan, Rafael Bejarano, 6-1; Shining Through, Flavien Prat, 4-1; Big Scott Daddy, Aaron Gryder, 4-1; King of Speed, Victor Espinoza, 3-1; Urban Light, Tiago Periera, 12-1; and Neptune’s Storm, Drayden Van Dyke, 4-1.LATEST CONTENT FROM XBTV:Gift Box works 5 furlongs (Sadler) 4-27-19Ohio works 4 furlongs (McCarthy) 4-27-19Hostess works 5 furlongs (Callaghan) 4-27-19 38% $45,840 Mario Gutierrez18 3 15% 0 0 4 3 2 $68,553 69% 2nd 5 IRISH-BRED READY FOR U.S. DEBUT IN SINGLETARY 2 4 $176,766 25% 14% $73,742 Aaron Gryder17 $71,862 75% 4 ITM% Michael McCarthy4 Carla Gaines5 Geovanni Franco13 2 0 Money Won 1 Mark Glatt14 $64,269 47% 25% $148,511 7 2 Flavien Prat20 Peter Miller8 0 14% 11% 2 1 2 1 TrainerMts 1st 2 70% 67% 2 3 80% 33% 2 5 $26,000 YOUNG-AT-HEART SOI PHET BACK RACING AT AGE 11 56% 2 4 22% 38% 28% $168,064 43% Tiago Pereira23 3 33% 33% 1 2 1 31% 3 3rd 2 1 (Current from April 12 Through Friday, April 26) $63,540 Vladimir Cerin10 $48,139 Phil D’Amato discussing Bowies Hero and S Y Sky ahead of their next starts at Golden Gate FieldsJack Carava discusses Zaffinah in the Golden Poppy Stakes at Golden Gate FieldsBellafina works 5 furlongs (Callaghan) 4-26-19Game Winner works 7 furlongs (Baffert) 4-26-19Secret Spice (Outside) in company with  Madman work 5 furlongs (Baltas) 4-26-19Roadster (Inside) works 6 furlongs (Baffert) 4-26-19FINISH LINES: Santa Anita Handicap winner Gift Box, prepping for the Grade I Gold Cup at Santa Anita on Memorial Day, May 27, worked five furlongs this morning in 1:01 for John Sadler . . .

Speaker Nuquay Clarifies Story

No Comments

first_imgBy Abednego DaviesHouse Speaker Emmanuel Nuquay has reacted to a front-page story of the Daily Observer claiming that he has never called for the relaxation of the implementation of the Code of Conduct.This newspaper, in its Friday, June 2 edition, published a front-page story titled, “President, Speaker Want Code of Conduct Relaxed.”Nuquay did not challenge the actual content of the story, but referred to its headline as ‘sensational.’The newspaper story carried remarks made by the Speaker at the recent meeting of political parties and state actors at the Monrovia City Hall.In a release yesterday, Nuquay said, “We reject and condemn the newspaper’s story as it lacks any iota of truth,” adding, “At no time has Speaker Nuquay called for the relaxation of the implementation of the Code of Conduct.”The release quoted Speaker Nuquay as saying, “When a legal instrument is passed by the legislature, signed into law by the President, challenged by some citizens and interpreted by the Supreme Court as constitutional, it becomes a law of the land and it behooves all Liberians and those within our borders to respect it.”For the benefit of the public, the document said, “The Daily Observer reporter wrote on behalf of the legislature, which many have accused of inserting the controversial section 5 in the CoC to ban other government officials from contesting the elections.”Speaker Emmanuel Nuquay said every Liberian needs to be given the opportunity to participate in the electoral process and given the chance to be heard. “We want to commit ourselves as lawmakers to this process by ensuring that these elections are free, fair, peaceful and inclusive.”Speaker Nuquay said he pointed out that “Peace is indispensable to our democracy and peaceful elections are not new phenomenon in Liberia as there have been several elections since the return of our country to democratic governance. We want to commit ourselves as lawmakers to this process by ensuring that these elections are free, fair, peaceful and inclusive.”Meanwhile, Speaker Nuquay asked, “Why should a call for peaceful election amounts to relaxing the implementation of the Code of Conduct? Perhaps, the Daily Observer and its overzealous reporter misconstrued the meaning and the contextualization of the word ‘inclusive.’“Our Constitution guarantees the political participation of all Liberians,” he maintained.  “However, not all Liberians are eligible to vote; only those who have attained the age of 18. Not all Liberians run for representative, senatorial, presidential or vice presidential positions; only Liberians who meet certain age requirements can do so.“Similarly, the Speaker’s call for an inclusive election does not in any way amount to a call for the relaxation of the Code of Conduct,” he said.  “Speaker Nuquay believes in the rule of law and always stands on the side of the law,” the released noted.The Daily Observer welcomes the Speaker’s reaction.  While he did not use the word ‘relaxed’ with regard to the Code of Conduct, the context in which he spoke, including the heated debate among political parties over the controversial ‘Section 5’ of the CoC at the event, led us to the headline we chose. A question mark (?), which should have appeared at the end of the headline in question, was inadvertently, regrettably omitted.  The headline was intended to read thus: “President, Speaker Want Code of Conduct Relaxed?” To this question, the Speaker’s reaction has indicated a resounding “no.” Therefore, we consider the matter closed.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window) – Advertisement – Speaker Nuquay last_img read more

Why You Don’t Have More Money

No Comments

first_img Essential Reading! Get my first book: The Only Sale Guide You’ll Ever Need “The USA Today bestseller by the star sales speaker and author of The Sales Blog that reveals how all salespeople can attain huge sales success through strategies backed by extensive research and experience.” Buy Now Most people believe they are money-motivated. They are not motivated by money; they just want more money. If you ask any of the 7.4 Billion human inhabitants on Earth, all of them would like to have more money, including the very wealthiest, regardless of how little it may change their lives.The earth is covered in money, but it isn’t evenly distributed. The Gross Domestic Product of Earth in 2017 is estimated by the World bank to be 80 trillion dollars. The total wealth of the earth is estimated to be something like 280 trillion dollars. And even though there are many things more important than money, money is still necessary.You can have as much as you are willing to earn, but you may not have as much as you want. If you don’t have the money you believe you want, there are a few primary reasons.Not Creating Value for OthersSome people believe others owe them money and are disappointed by the fact they aren’t providing it. There are others who think they cannot have more money because others already have it. However, this isn’t how money works. The acquisition of money is an other-oriented endeavor. You may be unaware that you are violating one of the primary laws of acquiring money: You must create value for others.If you are not willing to create value for others, money will elude you. The more value you create for others, the more you are likely to earn. There are a few prerequisites for creating value that includes education (knowledge) and competency (skills). Platitudes like “readers are leaders” and “earners are learners” may be hokey, but these aphorisms contain a truth worth acknowledging.Little value, little money. Greater value, greater money. Make yourself more valuable to others and start serving them.Not Enough Value for Enough PeoplePeople who make more money create more value for more people. The value they create scales. The more people who benefit from the value you create, the more valuable you become. For most people, scaling the value they create means taking on greater responsibility for outcomes that positively impact more people.This is why entrepreneurship is so attractive to those who want more money, even though the best of them also want to make a positive impact on other people’s lives (and the worst of them want to flip a business as quickly as possible or grow at the expense of other people).The fewer people who benefit from what you do, the less you earn. If you want more money, you have to create more value for more people.How to be Money MotivatedHere is how you can tell if someone is money motivated. Look to see if they are doing the work to make themselves into something more than they are now, someone who can create more value. Observe what they do and see if they are trying to create value for other people. Notice their work habits and their willingness to do more. If these things are absent, then the individual only wants more money, and they aren’t yet motivated.The order in which things tend to come is that you must be more and do more to have more. Once you have more, you can contribute more to the causes you care about, which is one of the very best motivations for seeking money, and something that will give you greater satisfaction than a fancy car or a big house.last_img read more
