By Rawle Toney in Suriname IN dominating fashion, Guyana occupied the top four spots in the male cycling Road Race event to retain their Inter Guiana Games (IGG) Cycling trophy.Exceptional team work by the Guyanese resulted in Curtis Dey being able to have his way on the streets of Paramaribo, as he finished with a time of One hour, 47 minutes and 59 seconds (1:47.59) to finish first.His teammates then followed: Marcus Keiler was second (1:52.17), Jason Cameron (1:59.37) finished third and Adealie Hodge (2:02.52) came in fourth, to hand Guyana a convincing win and continued their rich tradition of winning the event.In the female event, however, Suriname came first while Guyana’s Sheneka Tiexeira was second, Deance Welch took third and Suriname rounded off the top four. Byonka Barker complained that a Surinamese deliberately “took her out” the race, resulting in her bicycle being damaged.Guyana’s Curtis Dey crossing the finish line to win the IGG Road Race yesterday in SurinameMeanwhile, having won the time trial the previous day, Guyana came out highly optimistic and it was Dey, the Trojon Cycle club member, who was urged by his teammates to ‘break out’ of the pack.Dey rode solo for much of the 69 Kilometers road race and so did Keiler who left Cameron and Hodge to hold the fort at the back.Cameron, who happens to be Dey’s teammate at the Berbice cycling club, later broke out and left Hodge to ‘toy’ with the Surinamese cyclist.However, Hodge would later on get tired of playing games and being urged by the Guyanese supporters, he would sprint away from the ‘pack’ and later joined his teammates in celebration.

Powered by Firework Indian Football cemented a new place in it’s budding history after holding off the Asian champions Qatar in Doha for what turned out to be a nail-biter of a World Cup qualifier.Advertisement Igor Stimac , the recently appointed Indian Team coach has been implementing quite a positive brand of football within the squad. Although fitness has been an area where the Croatian has been questioned previously, the draw against Qatar was testament to how rapidly the squad is growing and improving in their ability.Advertisement “Our performance against Qatar is an invitation to fans for our next home game. We have heard a lot about the passion for football in Kolkata. I want to see a full house at the YBK Stadium for our match against Bangladesh,” Stimac told IANS.“You need to be our 12th player. We deserve that and I expect them to come and help us get the three points,” said the Croatian.Advertisement “Against Qatar, we proved to everyone who were talking about a lack of fitness among the players. Qatar are in a different league as compared to any team in Asia and my boys made sprints till the very last minute. They defended with such concentration throughout, which really proves their fitness capacity,” the 52-year old coach said.“As a coach, I am more than happy to get a point against the Asian Champions. All credit to my players and I’m really proud of them. I would also like to congratulate Qatar as the crowd really enjoyed the match and there was good football on display.”Sahal Abdul Samad and Udanta both had their share of chances on the counter but failed to convert. However , it was Qatar who were pulling the strings and had the lion’s share of the ball and chances, yet failing to secure the 3 points.“Qatar had more chances than us. But we also had our own, and that make us more experienced. When we become a more experienced side, we will convert those opportunities,” Stimac added.With a match against Bangladesh coming up in a couple of weeks time, Stimac and his men will be raring to bag the first set of 3 points at home.

Keen to get into Delhi University through the sports quota? Then waiting till the announcement of the second cut-off list, as advised by university counsellors, may not be the best idea.Though the DU Information Bulletin clearly states that for admission under the sports and extra-curricular activities (ECA) categories, students should “contact individual colleges from the date of announcement of the second cut-off”, some colleges have been selling forms for the sports quota right from the first week of June.Lady Shri Ram College, Dyal Singh College and Gargi College are three institutions that Mail Today verified are currently selling forms. Dyal Singh College and Gargi College will close sale on June 21, the day the second cut-off list is announced.Shreya Kaicker, a DU aspirant, was lucky to discover this on time.”I was pretty relaxed thinking that I don’t have to do anything till June 21. But when I started browsing the websites of different colleges, I realised that some were already selling forms,” she said.Meera Ramachandran, Gargi College principal, said: “Our forms for ECA and sports have been available on the college website since June 1, but we will continue submission till the morning of the trials, which will be held on June 22.”Dyal Singh College has uploaded a new admission notice on its website that clearly states: “Pre-admission forms for admission under ECA and Sports categories are available in the college office from June 10 to June 21 between 10 am and 1 pm on working days on the payment of Rs 20 per form.”advertisementLady Shri Ram College, too, has been doing the same since June 8 and will end sale on June 22.”I am not aware if Dyal Singh, LSR and Gargi have begun issuing forms for the Sports quota, but yes, our advice to all the colleges was to start sale only after the announcement of the second list. I will write to these colleges to find out if it really is so,” J.M. Khurana, dean, students’ welfare, said.This advisory, however, seems to have been misinterpreted by colleges. According to Dyal Singh College principal I.S. Bakshi, the institute wasn’t flouting any rule by selling forms before June 21.”The university advisory says the admission process should begin after the second list. Our sports trials will be held only after June 21, so I don’t see what the problem is,” he said.For more news on India, click here.For more news on Business, click here.For more news on Movies, click here.For more news on Sports, click here.

(Mi’kmaw hunter Storm Alexander turns as a helicopter draws near to pick up a moose killed during a harvest in the Cape Breton Highlands National Park. Photo courtesy Unama’ki Institute of Natural Resources)Trina RoacheAPTN National NewsOrganizers of a Mi’kmaw moose harvest in a national park in Nova Scotia are calling it a success despite a protest that caused delays last month.According to organizer Clifford Paul, 37 moose were harvested from the Cape Breton Highlands National Park.“It was a very humbling experience,” said Paul. “All the eyes of the Mi’kmaq Nation were upon us.”Paul, moose management coordinator for the Unama’ki Institute of Natural Resources (UINR) called the Mi’kmaq-led harvest historic because it was the first one carried out in a national park in the province.Biologists believe that if the moose population was allowed to grow, the boreal forest would eventually be destroyed.But all the attention came on the heels of opposition by local non-Mi’kmaq who live near the Cape Breton highlands National Park.The harvest was suspended after 30 people marched into the park and confronted the Mi’kmaq.There were tense moments as tempers flared.The protesters carried conflicting messages.On the one hand, they cited concerns over a dwindling moose population.One the other, they wanted in on the hunt.But those rights belong to the Mi’kmaq, said Paul. Their aboriginal and treaty rights are why they were the ones to do it.Though the protesters managed to suspend the harvest that day. Paul said in the end, all the media attention was a good thing for the Mi’kmaq.“What come out of it was that people took a closer look at the Mi’kmaq,” said Paul. “How the Mi’kmaq share the meat. Everything was distributed. That sets an example for a lot of harvesters elsewhere. These harvesters unselfishly did the work as volunteers to put food on the table for both Mi’kmaq and non-Mi’kmaq alike. Despite all the criticism thrown at us, the Mi’kmaq are all about caring and sharing.”The moose harvest wrapped up earlier this week.“Some of the moose meat was donated to the charity Feed Nova Scotia, to the Mi’kmaw Legal Services Network, as well as local families in need. The rest of the meat has been shared by Mi’kmaq communities around Nova Scotia,” said Paul.Concerns among protesters over a fragile moose population didn’t pan out.One of 37 moose harvested in the Cape Breton Highlands National Park. Photo courtesy Clifford PaulThe 37 moose were harvested in a 20 square kilometre area. That represents about 2 per cent of the park, which is home to around 1800 moose.“The harvesters said they found a lot of old moose trails, super highways where moose go through, there’s a lot of damage caused by over browsing,” said Paul.In addition to the Mi’kmaq observations, scientists have studied the area for 15 years and have called the overabundant moose population “unsustainable.”“We talk so much about moose, but really the goal is in forest restoration and forest health,” said Derek Quann, a resource conservation officer with Parks Canada. “One third of the boreal forest in the Cape Breton Highlands National Park is severely degraded. About 11 per cent has transformed to grassland.”For the Mi’kmaq, the harvest was always about more than the moose.“It was a lot of responsibility,” said Paul. “This is a part of not only our treaty right, but the responsibility that goes along with that treaty right. So the moose can thrive in the future in numbers that are conducive to sustainability.”The question of charges against the protesters for illegally entering a restricted zone is still up in the air.UINR board member Chief Rod Googoo said, “We have asked Parks Canada to determine if charges will be made and leave it to their discretion.”No word from Parks Canada yet, other than that they are looking into [email protected]
KATOWICE, Poland — The Latest on climate talks taking place in Poland (all times local):10:50 a.m.Five international banks are pledging to use the billions at their disposal to steer clients away from businesses that emit large amounts of greenhouse gases.The banks, led by ING of the Netherlands, announced the plan Tuesday on the sidelines of the U.N. climate summit in Poland.The Katowice Commitment, named after the city hosting the two-week summit, is also backed by BBVA, Standard Chartered, BNP Paribas and Societe Generale.The banks, with a combined loan book of over 2.4 trillion euros ($2.72 trillion), say they want to support the Paris accord on curbing climate change.Measures include developing tools to ensure lending is aligned with emissions-reduction goals and financing low-emissions technologies.The banks say they won’t exclude any clients but instead “work with them on their transition.”___10:05 a.m.Negotiators gathered for the U.N. climate talks in Poland are getting down to the nitty-gritty part of the two-week meeting.Diplomats from almost 200 countries began holding a series of technical talks Tuesday aimed at finalizing the rules that define the 2015 Paris accord on curbing global warming.Decisions on crunch issues are expected to be left to ministers when they return to the southern Polish city of Katowice next week.U.N.
