She left Joanna Jedrzejczyk in a battered heap and walked out the 115-pound UFC strawweight champion. With a buzzcut and steely determination that made a hybrid of some sort of Ripley meets Eleven sci-fi character, Namajunas dominated in a flash and thrust herself into the conversation as the new face of UFC.“I was the talk of the town that night,” she said. “I’ve always felt that I was a star. I always knew that I am a star. The only thing that was missing was the belt.” Oh, Namajunas has the belt in the suburban Denver home she shares with fiancee and training partner, Pat Barry. It’s in her closet.“It’s got an energy to it, you know? We want to make sure we don’t too wrapped up in it,” she said. “But we’ll shine it up. Give it some love.”Namajunas has felt nothing but love since winning a title on a card that fans, starting with UFC President Dana White, widely called one of the best in the company’s 25-year history. Namajunas, T.J. Dillashaw and Georges St. Pierre all won belts as challengers.“The UFC in general, we’ve been in kind of a weird spot lately,” she said. “That card is something that doesn’t come by very often. We haven’t seen a card like that in a really long time and it was something special to remember.”UFC has spent the year craving a new box office star that can carry the promotion into 2018 and beyond while stalwarts Ronda Rousey, Conor McGregor and Jon Jones are on the bench. UFC’s promotional push had been all-in on Jedrzejczyk, the Polish fighter who was a win away from matching Rousey with six straight title defenses.ADVERTISEMENT Rose Namajunas is announced before fighting Joanna Jedrzejczyk, of Poland, in a women’s strawweight title mixed martial arts bout at UFC 217 Saturday, Nov. 4, 2017, in New York.

Namajunas dropped her early in the first round with a big right hand, finished off a combination with a vicious left and pounced on a fallen Jedrzejczyk to finish her off.The MSG crowd that was solidly behind Jedrzejczyk during the walk to the cage roared with cheers whenNamajunas won. Namajunas choked back tears as White placed the championship belt on her shoulder.“I make my environment what I want it to be,” Namajunas said. “I went to her castle where she felt comfortable, where she wanted to be in New York City and I took it from her.”UFC announcer Joe Rogan said a superstar was born in New York.“I hope the UFC realizes, and I think they do, that’s a … star. That’s a real star,” he said this week on his “Joe Rogan Experience” podcast. “She’s a genuinely nice person. When you look like her and you’re 115 pounds and you’re a woman and you (mess) up the Boogeyman, yeah, crowds are going to gravitate to that. If she doesn’t become as a big a star as any other woman in MMA, I would be stunned.”Namajunas said that as champ, she wants to skip the brash trash talk that shot McGregor to mainstream stardom and has been imitated throughout UFC, including by the champions Jedrzejczyk, Michael Bisping and Cody Garbrandt, who all lost at UFC 217.Namajunas, who said she earned the nickname “Thug” as a kid from one of her neighbors, used her post-fightinterview to preach kindness.

But in this fight in particular, I wasn’t fighting for the belt but the bigger picture. Ever since I lost to (Karolina Kowalkiewicz), I decided I wanted to change the world.”Namajunas has said she was a victim of abuse and violence in a childhood complicated by watching her father suffer from schizophrenia. She also spoke out against the toxic atmosphere she found early in her MMA training at Roufusport. As Namajunas takes a turn trying to steer the women’s division into the future, she hoped she could serve as role model for someone looking for a voice.“Of course I want to leave things, especially negative things, in the past,” she said. “But if it can help somebody overcome something, then I want to make sure it ends up on a positive note. I don’t want to dwell on negative things.”The big negative in New York? Someone played the wrong walkout song. She requested “Sweet Freedom” by Michael McDonald.“They played some Oasis song or something,” Barry said.“It was definitely not my type of music,” Namajunas said.Namajunas planned to take some time off headed into the holidays and had no contender or timeframe in mind for her first title defense.She just knows that next time, everyone will be watching for her.

Completed houses had seen an average mark-up price around $28 million. Lower-end lots were advertised for sale beginning at $8 million while the ultra-luxurious homes would have cost in excess of $100 million.According to the entity’s website, New Life Community to be developed by Sunset Lakes Inc would be a fully gated five-star, luxurious villa community complete with all modern facilities and amenities.“The development contains an area of 100 acres, total building area of 1432642.78 sq ft for constructions of approximately 380 villas. The overall layout is like a lotus flower with four surrounding districts, A, B, C and D. The central district is the community social centre.The first phase in District A has commenced and will feature 100 villas, together with four areas reserved for public facilities, including water-supply station, garbage disposal facility, and fire station.”Sunset Lakes Inc was first incorporated in April 2011, “with the vision of introducing for the first time in Guyana a five-star gated community offering all modern amenities namely New Life Community.”The 100 acres of land was divided into two plots – the first of 71.09 acres was sold for $5 million per acre, while the remaining 28.91 acres cost $4 million per acre. The total cost was $471.09 million.Sunset Lakes, under Tiwarie’s control at the time, agreed to complete infrastructural works, including paved roads, and drainage, electricity and water networks, within three months of the agreement being signed. This did not obtain.Sunset Lakes was in 2015 ordered to attend a meeting with then Minister within the Communities Ministry Keith Scott, and other officials of the CH&PA to explain the delays.Efforts to contact the company’s named real estate/marketing personnel Amanda Lam proved futile as calls to the listed contact numbers went unanswered.The sale of the 100 acres of land aback the Providence Stadium had attracted sustained criticism particularly from the then Opposition now Government of the day, A Partnership for National Unity/Alliance for Change (APNU/AFC).last_img read more

first_imgRaffik Construction 100-Ball Title…A brilliant all-round performance from National Under-19 player Junior Sinclair spearheaded Rose Hall Town Bakewell to an easy six-wicket victory over arch rivals Albion Community Centre in the final of the historic Raffik Construction 100-Ball Cricket tournament.Junior SinclairSinclair claimed 3-16 and then returned with the bat to score a brilliant 53 not out as Rose Hall Town Bakewell easily surpassed Albion’s total of 130 all out.Playing at the Hampshire Ground in the Lower Corentyne District, Albion won the toss and elected to bat.The top order was subjected to a stern test of fast bowling from former National Under-19 Player Sylus Tyndall. Tyndall trapped Rajesh Kassinauth lbw for a golden duck in the first over, and then had former Guyana Under-19 batsman Adrian Sukhwa caught behind for 8, as Albion slipped to 20 for 2 in the 3rd over.Albion’s most experienced batsman Sharaz Ramcharran was then sharply caught by Junior Sinclair at long-off off the bowling of Kevlon Anderson as he attempted to clear the small ground. Albion slipped to 60 for 6 as Karran Arjpaul (0), Ritesh Umrao (9) and Kevin Umrao (1) all fell cheaply.Antonio February, who looked susceptible to the pace of Tyndall, started to prosper with the introduction of spin, and added a crucial stand of 60 with the talented Mahendra Chaitram.February scored 59 runs, which included three sixes and four boundaries, while Chaitram supported with 28. Once February departed at 120 for 7, the rest of the batting fell apart, as Tyndall finished with 2-24, Junior Sinclair had 3-16, Keith Simpson bagged 2-24 and Kevin Sinclair supported with 2-29.In reply, RHT raced to 60 – 0 in the fifth over, as openers Kevin and Junior Sinclair tore into the Albion all-spin bowling attack.Kevin was very aggressive, getting to 43 in just 15 balls, with four huge sixes and four boundaries. Albion was able to break the partnership when Kevin was run out, but Junionr Sinclair carried on to remain unbeaten on 53.Surrendra Kissoonlall (10), Keith Simpson (11) and Simon Lawson (8*) offered support, as RHT reached to 132-4. Gourav Ramesh took 2-12 for Albion while Umrao had 1-33.President Hilbert Foster noted that the Berbice Cricket Board created history by being the first to host a 100-ball cricket tournament in Guyana and the Caribbean. The tournament involved eighteen teams from the Lower/Central Corentyne. The main objectives were to promote the game at the grassroots level, to attract more youths to clubs in the area, and to return spectators to the grounds.Special thanks were extended to sponsor Mohamed Raffik for his investment, while former BCB President Anil Beharry was lauded for the role he played in acquiring the sponsorship.Representative of Raffik Construction, Daniella Latcha, praised the outstanding work of the Berbice Cricket Board, and declared her company pleased with the mileage it received during the hosting of the well-organised tournament.She congratulated the champions while wishing Albion Community Centre more success in the future.The Champions, runners-up and Man of the Finals — Junior Sinclair, were rewarded for their efforts.last_img read more

first_img1 Arsenal’s Gedion Zelalem (right) Likened to Cesc Fabregas, Xavi and Andres Iniesta? That’s very high praise, so with Gedion Zelalem set to play a role in Arsenal’s pre-season, talkSPORT’s Talent Spotter takes a closer look at the young star whose name is on the lips of many fans…Name: Gedion ZelalemDate of birth: 26 January, 1997Birthplace: Berlin, GermanyPosition: Central midfielderClub: ArsenalThe nitty gritty1) Zelalem came on trial with Arsenal in 2011. He was spotted by ex-Gunner Danny Karbassiyoon playing football for schoolboy side Olney Soccer Club in the USA, where he was living at the time. After a two-week test period, Arsenal invited him to join their academy.2) The midfielder was one of the lucky Arsenal youngsters to train with the Brazilian Olympic Football team during their pre-London 2012 preparations at London Colney. That summer proved particularly fruitful for him as he impressed on his U18 debut in pre-season against Chelsea. He has also trained with the Arsenal first team on several occasions.3) His playing style has seen him likened to Arsenal academy graduate Cesc Fabregas, with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain claiming that while development is still needed, there are qualities in his game that Fabregas possesses. His passing was singled out as a strength, while a former coach says there is a bit of Xavi and Iniesta in his game, too (see ‘what’s being said’ below).4) After impressing on Arsenal’s pre-season tour of Asia in 2013 he eventually made his debut for the club in their 4-0 victory over Coventry in the FA Cup fourth round in January 2014. By taking to the field against Coventry, Zelalem became the first player born after Arsene Wenger took charge of the club to take to appear for the Gunners.5) It was reported Zelalem’s father was going to apply for US citizenship, which would then automatically be acquired by the youngster. As such, some Americans created a petition to fast-track the application so he can play for Jurgen Klinsmann’s side as soon as possible. It has 1,159 signatures.What’s being said?They say:“He is a very young, promising talent. He has been educated here. He has the talent to be a great player.”– Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger“He dribbles like Iniesta and he passes like Xavi. I’ve thought like that for the past few years but I’ve been wary about saying it. I don’t worry now.”–  Matt Pilkington, his boss at Olney Rangers in the USVideo evidenceHave you seen of Zelalem play? Let us know what you think in the comments below…last_img read more

This will help save water stored in reservoirs and avoid further shortages throughout the county .With the experience from the widespread disruption last winter we are highlighting the following areas in particular where the public can help eliminate wastage of the public water supply:Running taps – please avoid leaving taps running. This is counter productive and will run down available water in storageBurst mains / leakage – any suspected leaks on watermains or wastage should be reported to the County Council at your local public services centre. Vacant properties – please continue to check vacant properties where internal plumbing may be damaged by freezing conditions. Ideally the water supply to vacant buildings should be turned off and systems drained of all water, e.g. where members of the public who are going on holiday during the coming months, we would recommend that they turn off the water supply to their premises and drain all water out of the system before leaving the property.Farming Community – we ask that you check all field connections and turn off leaking drinking troughs. This has proven to be a serious problem in rural areas in recent years. We also ask for your assistance in checking for burst pipes in farm buildings and burst hoses laying over ground. Essentially anywhere on the farm that water may be lostCaravan Parks – another area that is often remote where plumbing may be exposed and water losses can be slow to appear, we appeal to all caravan park owners to turn off the water supply to eliminate wastage.Once again the co-operation of every community is required if we are to avert widespread shortages in water supplies.

first_imgAlannah McGhee and Sean Forester have combined style with sustainability to create a new vegan fashion line – Forester Products.Forester Products is the first of its kind in Ireland and a fresh alternative for environmentally-conscious consumers. The Letterkenny-based brand is already turning heads after launching their first collection online in June. (Want a discount code on the first collection? Scroll on to the end of this article.)The unisex brand’s first range includes backpacks, holdalls, belts and wallets. Materials are cruelty-free leather alternatives, with luxury and quality at their core. The Everyday Forest Backpack: www.foresterproducts.comThe Ultimate Weekender Bag: www.foresterproducts.comForester Products has been in the research and production stages for the past year. But Sean says it all really began three years ago after he watched the Netflix documentary ‘Cowspiracy’. He was working in Canada when he adopted the vegan lifestyle and his partner Alannah followed suit.The inspirational moment to establish Forester Products came when Sean’s watch broke. He tried to replace it with a vegan version in early 2017 but realised the range of vegan accessories which were modern, affordable, stylish and ethical was limited, particularly for men.Sean Forester wearing his Forester Products watch. Photo Rachel McLaughlinThe time was right. Sean was looking for a new professional direction from his career in finance so he quickly decided to leave his job in Montreal and return to Ireland to begin building the business with his partner and Co-Founder Alannah McGhee.“It just made sense. Veganism was taking off in food, so we knew it was the right time for introducing accessories to the market,” said Sean. With Sean’s finance background and Alannah’s experience in marketing and events, the team put in many months of research and training with the New Frontiers entrepreneur programme to lead Forester Products to its exciting launch date.Alannah McGhee wearing Forester Products Watch. Photo Rachel McLaughlinEvery aspect of the production process had to be sustainable and ethical for the brand to be respected in the vegan world.The signature watch straps are created using Ultra Leather. Ultraleather is naturally cruelty-free, PVC free, contains no POPs, meets stringent chemical emissions limits and is Greenguard certified.All other accessories are made in Portugal using cork from the cork oak tree. Dubbed as ‘nature’s leather’, cork is the byproduct of a natural treatment process which extends the tree’s life and absorbs CO2 emissions. In Portugal alone, harvesting reduces global CO2 emissions by 10 million tonnes annually.Vegan Leather Wallet: www.foresterproducts.comVegan Leather Wallet: www.foresterproducts.comThe Black & Gold: www.foresterproducts.comAlannah and Sean have committed to using sustainable packaging for all their products by limiting plastics, using innovative practices and sourcing recycled materials. They also commit to giving back a percentage of all profits being donated to charitable causes which align with their values. “We are not just doing this for profits, we want to partner with an organisation to support because our main reason for doing this is for the environment,” Alannah said.As a concept brand with an equal focus on ethical and environmental issues, Forester Products aim to create new collections all made with other cruelty-free, plant-based and sustainable materials.“Our ethos is simple – we just want to make good products, the right way” – ForesterForester Products Belts www.foresterproducts.comFor now, the debut collection is a big draw for vegans and other ethically-minded consumers.
