NASCAR at Talladega: Rain, severe weather postpone the Geico 500 to Monday

first_imgFor the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic shut down live sports globally, a NASCAR Cup Series race was scheduled to run with generally admitted fans in the stands, albeit in limited numbers. This relative return to normalcy comes at Talladega Superspeedway, NASCAR’s biggest and arguably its most exciting track.Mother nature had other ideas, though. Due to severe weather, Sunday’s race at Talladega was postponed to Monday. It will begin at 3 p.m. ET on Fox. When it does run, the race at Talladega will mark the first Cup Series event at a 2.5-mile superspeedway since the Daytona 500, which ended with Ryan Newman’s terrifying crash on the last lap. That accident led to some superspeedway-specific rule changes that are being implemented for the first time this week at Talladega.Because Ford and specifically Team Penske have been so dominant at Talladega of late, Brad Keselowski and Joey Logano are among the favorites to win Monday’s Geico 500. Also a popular pick to win is Chase Elliott, who took the victory in the spring race at Talladega last season.Of course, picking the winner of a NASCAR Cup Series race at Talladega is the motorsports equivalent of throwing pegs at a dart board. The great equalizer that is pack racing should make for an exciting race that, with some speed and a little more luck, can be won by just about anybody.MORE: Watch all NASCAR races live with fuboTV (7-day free trial)NASCAR at Talladega live updates, highlights from Geico 5005:13 p.m. ET: NASCAR makes it official.

Another ‘Balotellata’: SuperMario ejected after 8 ’in the field

first_imgMario Balotelli returns to be news in Italy and not exactly for a feat in the grass. The coach of Brescia, Eugenio Corini, decided to start off against Cagliari with Torregrossa in the lead (who signed two goals), leaving the former Manchester City on the bench. SuperMario jumped into the field in 74 ‘, and stayed there just over seven minutes. In 81 ‘, the referee Giua admonished him for dangerous play in a ball played with Pisacane: the decision bothered the tip, which reacted by insulting the referee. The second yellow was inevitable, and Balotelli had to return to the locker room leaving his team in numerical inferiority in the final stretch of a fundamental and complicated confrontation.The performance of the striker, who so far scored five goals in 15 presences with Brescia, immediately caused controversy in Italy, and will force him to miss the return to San Siro against Milan next Friday.last_img read more

Protesters hopeful for VAT repeal

first_img…as coalition Govt splits on issueBy Devina SamarooProtesters are reinvigorated with a new sense of morale now that the Government appears to be divided on the issue of the education tax, with the smaller arm of the coalition demonstrating a willingness to join the resistance.A small group of disgruntled stakeholders lined up outside the Ministry of the Presidency on Wednesday in an effort to demonstrate their dissatisfaction with Government’s move to reject their concerns.Some children in the protest line taking a stand against VAT on private educationThe Alliance For Change (AFC), which has a minority of senior Ministers in the coalition A Partnership for National Unity (APNU)/AFC Administration, has signalled its intention to challenge a Cabinet decision to maintain the 14 per cent Value Added Tax (VAT) on private school fees.Stakeholders on Wednesday engaged an AFC delegation on the issue of VAT on private education, where the party’s General Secretary, Marlon Williams pledged support and encouraged them to continue their opposition.Guyana Times was informed that some concerned individuals would be meeting with the nine AFC Government Ministers on Monday at the party’s headquarters to further discuss the best strategies to be employed to reverse this hated aspect of the new tax regime.AFC Leader Raphael Trotman recently indicated that he would push for an earlier review of the VAT on private education in light of the continued concerns being raised by stakeholders.From all indications, the key players in the Government seemed to be divided on its stance regarding this issue, and stakeholders are wasting no time in capitalising on the opportunity.2018Cabinet recently pronounced that the 14 per cent VAT on private education would stay, but the policy would be reviewed for the 2018 National Budget.Protesters argued that such assurance is of no comfort to them.“What will happen to the parents who can’t afford it currently? Would they have to take their children out of the private school? And then when Cabinet reviews it for 2018 and drop the VAT, would the parents then have to take back their children to private schools? That doesn’t seem like a workable decision,” stated Chetram Ramdial.Jonathan Yearwood, a business student at a private institution, said he may have to drop out of school and give up his aspirations until Government decides to review the tax.“If they say that they are not going to remove it until 2018, I may have to drop out of school by then. Children may have to drop out of school by then. It does not help us for them to review for 2018. We need immediate action. We need action now. While they are waiting to review for 2018, people will be punishing,” he stated.PressureAmid criticisms that the AFC is just playing politics, protesters are keen on holding the few Government Ministers to their word.“What we now have to do is put the AFC to the test. We now have to put pressure on individual Ministers within the AFC, who can now bring pressure to bear on the Cabinet,” Yearwood stated, hoping that the outcome would be favourable.Opposition forces have argued that the AFC, as part of the coalition Administration, was part and parcel of the decision to initially impose the tax and subsequently voted for it to stay.Trotman, however, had asserted that the situation was akin to sewing: whereby it is simple to pull a threaded needle through a cloth, but b quite difficult to reverse the action.One of Government’s main concerns regarding the calls to remove the education tax relates to the impact it will have on its projected revenue structure.But, Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo explained that the tax could be removed without significantly harming the revenue framework by simply cutting spending in unnecessary areas like ministerial salary increases and the $12.5 million monthly rental of the Sussex Street drug bond.DiscriminationSome protesters also believe Government is blatantly discriminating against persons who opt to send their children to private schools.“I don’t think the (Government) should be discriminating against parents just because we sacrifice to send our kids to private schools. Private schools provide an environment where kids are safe. For example, look at that little 10-year-old girl who died because she was kicked to the stomach; that happened in the public school system. The Government, instead of applauding or praising or trying to do similar to what the private schools are doing, is now more or less trying to force parents to send their kids to public schools,” expressed a mother of four.Many stakeholders have also questioned whether the public education system is prepared to absorb all the students who will now have to abandon private schools because of the imposed tax.Former President of the University of Guyana Senior Staff Association (UGSSA), Dr Melissa Ifill had argued that private schools were generally viewed as assets by Governments across the Region and the world, as they removed a burden from the State in the provision of education.Poor turnoutAlthough the turnout was poor, protesters were not discouraged as they strongly believe their united voices are powerful.They explained that persons are otherwise occupied with the hassles of life and may not always make it to participate in the protest actions.Some protesters also believe that Public Sector workers, who are also affected by the imposition of the education tax, are fearful of victimisation if they stand in the protest lines.Despite the poor turnout, the organisers are committed to continuing their resistance.According to them, it is not about the number of persons who show up but the magnitude of the problem, which has far-reaching implications on the socio-economic landscape of the country.last_img read more

€100,000 OF CARS STOLEN IN DARING RAID ON GARAGE

first_imgA daring gang has escaped with more than €100,000 worth of cars during a raid on a well-known car showroom.The gang struck at Colm Dillon Car Sales in Manorcunningham in the early hours of this morningThree “high end” cars were stolen in the raid which Gardai believe was well-planned. The cars were parked alongside other stock in the open courtyard area.The car raiders broke into the main showroom area and went looking for keys belonging to the various cars they had “pin-pointed” to steal.The gang located a locked cupboard used to store the keys and ripped the door open.Dozens of other sets of keys were clearly visible on the floor of the offices at the showroom yesterday morning. Gardai believe the thieves could have been in the building for a considerable period of time before finding the keys for the stolen cars.Gardai are remaining tight-lipped about the identity of the stolen cars for operational reasons but it is believed they may include both and Audi and a BMW.Gardai are liaising with the PSNI in the belief the cars may have been stolen by a gang from Northern Ireland and driven across the border close by.It is not believed a car transporter was used to remove the stolen cars.A clearly upset Mr Colm Dillon was at his garage yesterday surveying the damage to his garage and the theft of the cars. Mr Dillon said “I can’t say anything at the moment. I would prefer to allow Gardai to do their job. This is just awful.”Mr Dillon is hugely-respected in business circles across Donegal where he has been in business since 1975.He started selling cars in a small garage in nearby Ballylawn before moving to the modern car showroom at Drumbarnett in 2007.The garage is extremely popular amongst car buyers from both sides of the border. Gardai forensic experts yesterday (SUN) arrived at the scene of the robbery to begin their investigation.A Garda spokesman said “A full investigation into this incident is currently underway.“We would appeal to anybody who was on the main Letterkenny to Derry Road at any time on Saturday night or the early hours of Sunday morning and may have noticed anybody acting suspiciously to contact the Gardai,” he said.Ends€100,000 OF CARS STOLEN IN DARING RAID ON GARAGE was last modified: July 2nd, 2012 by StephenShare 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)Tags:cars stolenColm DillonGardairaidlast_img read more

PATIENT FAILS TO SEE FUNNY SIDE OF TWICE-CANCELLED OPERATION

first_imgA man has spoken of his frustration after having a day surgery operation cancelled for the second time on the day the procedure was due to take place.Letterkenny HospitalFull-time student Tony Mac Ruairi said he is now completely frustrated at the lack of communication between administration and medical staff at Letterkenny General Hospital.Mr Mac Ruairi, from Ranafast, was due to have the surgery yesterday, exactly a month after the planned operation was first cancelled. He spoke earlier in the day on the Barrscéalta programme on RTÉ Raidió na Gaeltachta about his bitter disappointment at the outcome of yet another wasted journey from his home in West Donegal.On February 4th, he was on a trolley ready to be taken to an operating theatre when the procedure was cancelled.He was told by a surgeon that the operation would go ahead yesterday.But Mr Mac Ruairi told Donegal Daily “When I arrived they claimed I had been informed ten days ago that my operation had been cancelled. I certainly didn’t receive any notification. “One person told me that he didn’t know why I had brought a bag with me as I certainly wouldn’t be seen.“It appears to me that our health system is going backwards instead of forwards. It appears that medical staff as well as administration staff appear to just accept the system is broke and we can’t fix it,” he said.Mr Mac Ruairi revealed that he had to make arrangements for his children to be left and collected to and from both national and secondary school.“I had to cancel social commitments in my community as well as to my family. It’s that side of things that isn’t taken into account when the system breaks down like this,” he said.Ironically Mr Mac Ruairi has been told his operation has been rescheduled for April 1st. “It’s certainly ironic that this is the date it has been rescheduled for. I’ll be making contact with the hospital a couple of weeks in advance. But who is to say it won’t be cancelled again,” he said.A spokeswoman for the HSE said they do not comment on individual cases.PATIENT FAILS TO SEE FUNNY SIDE OF TWICE-CANCELLED OPERATION was last modified: March 4th, 2014 by StephenShare 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)Tags:cancelleddonegalLetterkenny General HospitaloperationRanafastTony MacRuairilast_img read more
