Salah set to retain African Player of the Year title

first_imgJohannesburg, South Africa | AFP | Liverpool star Mohamed Salah is set to be named 2018 African Player of the Year for a second successive time at a gala awards ceremony in Senegal Tuesday.The sharpshooter is competing against fellow English Premier League stars, Liverpool team-mate Sadio Mane from Senegal and Gabonese Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang of Arsenal.Consistent scorer Salah has already won the 2018 BBC African Footballer of the Year prize and it would be a shock if he did not add to his collection of individual honours in Dakar.Should he be confirmed as the best footballer in Africa once again, Salah will become the first player from the north of the continent to claim back-to-back titles.Ivorian Yaya Toure, Samuel Eto’o from Cameroon and Senegalese El Hadji Diouf achieved the feat in a competition first staged 48 years ago with Malian Salif Keita voted number one.Manchester City midfielder Toure, the younger brother of former Arsenal defender Kolo, went on to finish first four times in a row from 2011.Eto’o and Ghanaian Abedi ‘Pele’ Ayew are also four-time Player of the Year winners, but not in consecutive years.Paris-based France Football magazine organised the annual award until the mid-1990s when the Confederation of African Football (CAF) took over. Votes from national team and selected club coaches, CAF officials and unnamed ‘experts’ count toward deciding who lifts the trophy.Salah scored 44 goals in all competitions for Liverpool last season, his first at Anfield after moving from Italian Serie A outfit Roma.– Slow start –After a slow start to the 2018/2019 campaign, the right-side attacker has netted 13 goals, one less than Aubameyang and Tottenham Hotspur and England star Harry Kane.The Egyptian also scored the winning goal against Napoli at Anfield last month that took Liverpool to the knockout phase of the Champions League at the expense of the Italian club.Salah had less success with Egypt last year as injury ruled him out of the loss to Uruguay at the start of the World Cup in Russia.He did score against both Russia and Saudi Arabia, but the north Africans were beaten in both matches and exited without securing even one point.Share on: WhatsApp Pages: 1 2last_img read more

Tokyo governor says cancelling Olympics ‘unthinkable’

first_imgThere are increasing doubts over whether the Games can be held (AFP Photo/Behrouz MEHRI)Tokyo, Japan | AFP | Cancelling the 2020 Olympics is “unthinkable” although the classification of the coronavirus as a pandemic will likely have some impact on the Games, the Tokyo city governor said on Thursday.“It can’t be said that the announcement of a pandemic would have no impact… But I think cancellation is unthinkable,” Yuriko Koike told reporters.Doubts are increasingly being raised over whether the Olympics can be held as scheduled from July 24 to August 9.Organisers have insisted the Games will go ahead as planned and the International Olympic Committee (IOC), with whom the final decision rests, has said there has not yet been any talk of cancellation or postponement.The IOC has said it will coordinate closely with the World Health Organization, which has now officially classified the outbreak as a pandemic.But coronavirus has already taken a huge toll on sport across the globe. US basketball was the latest sport to be hit, as the NBA said it would suspend play starting on Thursday after a Utah Jazz player preliminarily tested positive for COVID-19.In Italy, the hardest-hit European country, all sporting events including Serie A have been suspended until April 3.Arsenal’s game at Manchester City on Wednesday became the first Premier League fixture to be called off due to the outbreak, with the Gunners’ players put in quarantine after coming into contact with the owner of Greek club Olympiakos.The virus has also hit the UEFA Champions League, with Italian side Atalanta qualifying for the quarter-finals at Valencia on Tuesday in an empty stadium, while Paris Saint-Germain’s win over Borussia Dortmund was also played without spectators.In tennis, the prestigious ATP and WTA Indian Wells tournament was cancelled as California health officials declared a public health emergency in the area after a confirmed case of the coronavirus.Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more

Sheila and Ben – A Lifetime of Satisfied Kluh Jewelers Shoppers

first_imgSubmitted by L. Jeanette Strole Parks for Kluh JewelersSheila has been shopping at Kluh’s Jewelers with her husband, Ben, for decades.Aside from efficient and clever ad campaigns, nothing convinces a new potential customer to try a new product or store as the trusted word-of-mouth references from another shopper. So it is that we bring you an installment of affirming words from some very content customers, Sheila and Ben. (Editor’s note: They have chosen to withhold their last names for this article.)Ben, a retired sheet metal worker has lived in Thurston County most of his life, and graduated from North Thurston High School in 1966. At that time, the graduating class was presented with a 10% lifetime discount from the Kluh Jewelers family, and indeed, he has kept this card for life. In 1981, he married Sheila, (who has lived in this area since 1973), and they remembered this 10% discount card when it was time to buy a birthday gift for Ben’s mother. They made a trip out Kluh Jewelers, and he bought her some topaz earrings. “We were so impressed with the quality and service, that we have been going back for gifts for family (and myself) ever since.”Sheila, who retired from Alaska Airlines recently, shares that she and Ben and her sister-in-law from California have been attending several of the Kluh’s lay-away and vault sales. The annual vault sale event, in November, is Sheila’s personal favorite when she does all her Christmas shopping each year. “As I was a flight attendant, and out of town a lot, I had to miss some, but Ben went for me. We love the door prize events which take place prior to the sale, and have even won some, such as a $25 gift certificate towards the purchase of an item, and also pearl earrings.” As she reiterates, the vault and lay-away sales are an excellent opportunity to come in and see what they have in stock, and what their environment is all about. “And the donuts are great,” she adds with wit.Their support and loyalty to Kluh’s business has given them many opportunities to add special items to their collection. A recent such memory marked Sheila’s retirement with a little extra dazzle. “Ben and I were shopping and I gleamed onto a beautiful gold and diamond watch which I could not purchase at the time, but mentioned to my husband how much I loved this watch and what a beautiful retirement gift it would be.  Well, on my last flight, he went with me.  On my layover, I woke up in Chicago the next morning, and there was a beautiful gift wrapped box on top of my suitcase which contained the watch I had my eye on. “When Sheila retired from Alaska Airlines, Ben surprised her with a special watch that she had her eye on at Kluh Jewelers.She adds that Kluh’s does an excellent job with gift wrapping, which adds that much more to the experience of giving and receiving gifts from their store cases.In all their years of shopping at Kluh’s she has never had any complaints with their inventory or service. If anything, the opposite has been true. “I have had several pieces of jewerly in the past that needed to be sized or repaired and their on-site jeweler has always done an excellent and timely job. “The unique jewelry, friendly staff and customer service keeps them coming back. “You cannot find [this] at a big box store.” One of her upcoming notions is to have a gold bracelet (which she purchased at a lay-away sale) made into a charm bracelet with her airline-service wings.Ben and Sheila would probably not have foreseen that the 10% discount card that he received in 1966 would lead to their lifelong habit of shopping at this multi-generational establishment. But they are most certainly pleased with each experience they have had inside the doors of Kluh Jewelers. “What stands out most is their customer service.  When we walk into the store we are greeted with friendliness and they always remember our names. I would sincerely recommend anyone looking for a gift for someone or something for themselves for a special occasion to go to Kluh’s.  ”Kluh Jewelers701 Sleater Kinney Road SE in Lacey360-491-3530 Facebook3Tweet0Pin0last_img read more

Now or never for Leafs, game three Friday at NDCC Arena

first_imgBy Bruce FuhrThe Nelson Daily SportsIt’s time to put up or shut up for the Nelson Leafs.Down two games entering game three of the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League Murdoch Semi Final to the Beaver Valley Nitehawks, the Leafs can ill-afford to fall into a three-game deficit.“We have to win our two games at home to be successful,” Leaf coach Chris Shaw told The Nelson Daily Thursday.“It’s a make or break situation for us. But we’re pretty confident playing at home where we’ve had a lot of success this season.”That success, however, has been limited against the Hawks. In four games at the NDCC Arena, Beaver Valley has won three.“We got to concentrate on our scoring chances and on our power play,” Shaw confessed. “We had some chances to get back in the game (Wednesday) but our power play let us down.”Shaw said the mood in the Leaf dressing room improved immensely following game one’s meltdown.“The guys feel a lot better than after the first game,” said Shaw. “I thought we played well enough to win in game two.”Nelson played Wednesday’s game without the services of top center Gavin Currie.Shaw did not want to comment on Currie, who spent the past six weeks on the injury list, saying the star forward is “questionable” for Friday.The rookie coach did call out his top players to be better when the puck drops at 7 p.m. Friday.“Our top players need to be our top players,” Shaw insists. “Our forwards six through nine, our younger guys, have been great. We really need our older guys to provide veteran leadership to lead us to victory.”ICE CHIPS: Game four is Saturday at 7 p.m. in the NDCC Arena. If necessary, game five is Monday in Fruitvale. . . .

Ebola Claims Catholic Hospital’s Chief Admin

first_imgThe Daily Observer was told on Saturday, August 2, that the St. Joseph Catholic Hospital Chief Administrator, Bro/Dr. Patrick Nshamdze, has died, having contracted the deadly Ebola virus disease at least three weeks ago. He died Friday, August 1; he was 57.There were tears Saturday, August 2, at the Christ The King Catholic Church in Gaye Town when news filtered in that Bro Patrick has succumbed to the virus. He was very attached to the church and its members.Dr. Nshamdze, who preferred to be called “Bro. Patrick”, was from Cameroon and a member of the Catholic Community—Brothers of St. John of God. Bro. Patrick was one of the missionaries assigned at the St. Joseph Catholic Hospital in Congo Town. He was one of those very reliable medical practitioners, who kept the hospital intact and running.One Catholic source, who preferred to remain anonymous told the Observer that Bro Patrick had contracted the disease from a pregnant lady, who had been transferred from another health facility to the hospital. According to this source, the lady, who too, has died of the virus, came bleeding and it was Bro. Patrick, who had worked on her.“When Bro. Patrick was told that this lady had died from Ebola, he broke down, because he had had direct contact with her,” our source said.The Observer was told by other high-placed sources within the Catholic Church that the Church had requested his remains to be interred differently so that the Church and his relatives can one day pay homage to him but their plead was not granted as he was “dumped in a mass grave” containing at least 25 other victims, in Johnsonville, outside Monrovia.Very nearby the grave in which he and others were “dumped”, lay plywood billboards, indicating all of those buried in that mass grave.News filtered in late last night that Spain, which provides bulk of the hospital’s supports, was making plans to “evacuate” all the remaining missionary sisters and brothers assigned at the hospital.If this happens, it could be a deadly blow to the struggling health sector and nation at-large, grappling with the Ebola outbreak, which has claimed so many lives in Liberia. The St. Joseph Catholic Hospital is partially closed at the moment; this would be one last blow to finally close the hospital indefinitely.The Observer was told that the Catholic Church is expected to meet today to discuss these grave matters, including Bro. Patrick’s death.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Axed Kepa’s still my number one, says Sarri

first_img0Shares0000Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri reacts after Kepa Arrizabalaga refused to come offLondon, United Kingdom, Feb 28 – Maurizio Sarri insists Kepa Arrizabalaga is still Chelsea’s first choice goalkeeper despite dropping the rebellious Spaniard for Wednesday’s 2-0 win over Tottenham.Sarri axed Kepa following his star’s astonishing mutiny in the League Cup final against Manchester City on Sunday when he refused to be substituted after suffering an extra-time injury at Wembley. With Argentine veteran Willy Caballero in goal while Kepa languished on the bench, Sarri’s side recorded a vital Premier League victory against their London rivals at Stamford Bridge.Kepa was fined one week’s wages by Chelsea for his behaviour, but Sarri appeared keen to draw a line under the damaging row when he faced the media after the Tottenham game.Asked if Kepa was still his number one, Sarri said: “Of course. I think it was the right decision. Kepa made a big mistake, he paid with the club and then he had to pay with the team.“Caballero is a good goalkeeper with great experience and he’s a great man for us, he’s very confident on the pitch and in the dressing room.“But now I think we have to stop. From tomorrow he will be with us.“I don’t know if he will be on the pitch in the next match, but in one of the next two for sure.”Chelsea face Fulham on Sunday and then Dynamo Kiev in the Europa League the following week.Sarri didn’t make it clear which game Kepa would play in, meaning the world’s most expensive goalkeeper will have to wait to see if his ‘first choice’ status is now limited to non Premier League matches.That would be a big call from Sarri, who is fighting to save his job after a dismal first season in charge and couldn’t afford to let such a challenge to his authority go unchecked.After making his point to his team, Sarri is now playing the peace-maker.“We cannot kill him. When you are young you can make mistakes,” he said.“The most important thing is you need to understand after every mistake. For me the question is closed.”Sarri revealed he didn’t speak to Kepa one to one, preferring to let him find out he had been dropped in a team meeting.“I didn’t tell him anything. On the matchday I don’t speak to players in an individual way. I only speak with the team. He found out in the meeting,” Sarri added.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more
