NEW INVESTIGATION LAUNCHED BY PSNI INTO MURDER OF DONALDSON

first_imgA new investigation has been launched into allegations that police officers may have contributed to the death of republican informer Denis Donaldson.The Police Ombudsman has overturned a previous decision by his office to close the investigation and declare there was no misconduct by officers.The senior Sinn Fein official was shot dead in outside Glenties in April 2006. He had gone into hiding after police told him the media were preparing to expose his secret life as an informer.The Real IRA said it was responsible but his family alleged that police officers may have exposed him as an agent and contributed to his death.Three years ago the Police Ombudsman at the time, Al Hutchinson, said there had been no police misconduct and declared the case closed.But a BBC Spotlight investigation in October 2011 revealed investigators had not interviewed a special branch officer who Mr Donaldson’s family believe may hold vital information about what happened. They were also unaware he had been writing a journal which his family believe could contain clues about who killed him and why.The current ombudsman, Michael Maguire, confirmed on Wednesday that he has launched a new investigation.It is understood investigators will seek access to the journal, which was removed by Garda officers investigating the killing, and to interview the special branch officer.Mr Donaldson was shot at a remote cottage in Glenties in 2006.He moved out of his Belfast home a few months before his death, and had been living in the run-down cottage which had neither electricity nor running water. Four months earlier, he had been expelled from Sinn Fein after admitting being a paid British spy for 20 yearsNEW INVESTIGATION LAUNCHED BY PSNI INTO MURDER OF DONALDSON was last modified: January 30th, 2013 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)last_img read more

Celtics back on track, rout Magic

first_imgMOST READ Kammuri turning to super typhoon less likely but possible — Pagasa Jalen Brown scored 10 points in the first quarter, when Boston opened a 14-point lead. Aron Baynes finished with 13 points and 11 rebounds — his first double-double with the Celtics — and Terry Rozier had a career-high 23 points.Jonathon Simmons scored 14 points and Nikola Vucevic had 12 points and 11 rebounds for Orlando. Aaron Gordon, who was 2 for 10 from the field, said the Magic didn’t play like they were eager to end their slide.“We played like it was just another game,” he said. “We didn’t play like they were the first in the East and we are on a losing streak.”Orlando scored the first four points of the game and trailed by just four with less than four minutes left in the first before Boston scored 16 of the next 20 points to take a 40-24 lead. Leading 42-30 early in the second, the Celtics went on an 11-2 run and later got back-to-back 3-pointers from Rozier to open a 28-point lead.“We’re not good enough defensively right now,” Magic coach Frank Vogel said. “And Boston was clicking on all cylinders.”ADVERTISEMENT James has triple-double, Cavs beat Hornets for 7th straight Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

first_img​Berbatov says Spurs should snub Mourinho for Pochettinoby Freddie Taylor14 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveFormer Manchester United and Tottenham striker Dimitar Berbatov thinks Spurs should not hire Jose Mourinho.There are rumours suggesting that Mourinho is primed for a return to the Premier League, after he rejected French giants Lyon in the past week.Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino is under a bit of pressure after a poor start to the season.But Berbatov thinks Spurs should persevere with Pochettino.He told reporters: “Pochettino is the guy that needs to stay there, he’s been there for a long time.”There has been a lot of talk about Mourinho taking over at Spurs, I think he would have difficulty as well.”Would he make Spurs better? I don’t know because it is the same team.”Yes you can have a bit of a lift in the beginning, like Manchester United did when Ole Gunnar Solskjaer came in.”Then you need to keep going otherwise you are going to slip into a spiral.”I remember Sir Alex Ferguson telling us a team needs to be changed when four years passes.”Not the whole team but players. After four years some players start to get complacent and they aren’t challenged.”They are in with the manager and they are comfortable, so a manager needs to shake things up and bring in new player.”I was thinking that this could be the case with Spurs, a lot of the players have been there a long time.”Maybe they need to shake things up and try to push the players in a way.” TagsTransfersAbout the authorFreddie TaylorShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

Residents of Bellefield in Manchester Get Water Shop

first_imgStory Highlights The Minister said more water shops would be built, as there is a need for them where there is no available water supply across the island.More than 20,000 gallons of purified water will now be available daily, the Minister noted, and urged the citizens to protect the facility.Mr. McKenzie thanked Dillon Dawkins, who leased the land on which the facility was constructed. “This is what community involvement is all about,” he said.Mr. Dawkins told JIS News that he donated the land to house the water shop, because of the love he has for the community and the people. The lease is initially for 10 years, with an option to renew.“There were times when I was asked by people to take water to them, and I used my vehicle to do it,” he said.A resident of Bellefield, Claudine Lloyd, told JIS she is happy for the water shop. “It is better, cleaner and in a good environment. So far, we are enjoying it and we will see how good it works,” she said. It was built at a cost of $9.5 million and was officially opened on Thursday, April 25 by Minister of Local Government and Community Development, Hon. Desmond McKenzie. Also present were Mayor of Mandeville, His Worship Councillor Donovan Mitchell; and Member of Parliament, Peter Bunting. “For the next year, the water will be provided free of cost. We will review it then to see how it works, but no resident should be turned away, because there is no fee associated with the water at this time. We will be ensuring that the tanks should never run dry,” Mr. McKenzie said. center_img Residents of Bellefield, Banana Ground, Blue Mountain, Bombay, Virginia, Top Bellefield, Davyton and Coffee Grove in Central Manchester now have a reliable source of potable water, as a water shop has been opened in the area.It was built at a cost of $9.5 million and was officially opened on Thursday, April 25 by Minister of Local Government and Community Development, Hon.

Tony Romo Was A Good QB In An Era Of Great Ones

Quarterbacks with the most career pass yardage who entered the league between 1998 and 2005 and who were active last year. (With the exception of Peyton Manning, who is included for context.)Source: Pro-Football-Reference.com Tom Brady2356252212 Peyton Manning26572K25714 Romo’s career totals aren’t as impressive as his peers’ Carson Palmer4.702.986.2488.0 Drew Brees2326610110 PLAYERTD RATEINT RATEADJ. NET YARDS/ ATTEMPTNFL PASS EFFICIENCY RATING Philip Rivers176460006 Ben Roethlisberger183472005 Aaron Rodgers135371226 Drew Brees5.302.516.9196.3 Tony Romo127340004 Carson Palmer174440003 Of this nine-player cohort of Romo and his contemporaries, Romo ranks last in games started and last in career passing yards. He’s one of just three with no Super Bowl championships, MVP awards or First Team All-Pro nods, and is tied for second-fewest Pro Bowl appearances. Unlike a Dan Marino or Dan Fouts, Romo doesn’t boast eye-popping production to counter his lack of a championship; he threw for fewer total yards than Jim Everett or Matt Hasselbeck despite being a player during nine of the NFL’s top 10 pass-happiest seasons.The seven active quarterbacks in this group are all slated to turn in at least another full season of stats, which will drop Romo even further behind his contemporaries. Worse yet, players like Matt Ryan and Joe Flacco — drafted in 2008 — are already eclipsing some of Romo’s totals.But things get more complicated when you look at Romo’s rate stats. Within that same elite group, Romo is fourth in adjusted net yards per attempt and tied for second in touchdown rate. His career NFL passer efficiency rating is 97.1, just a tenth of a point shy of Brady’s. Ben Roethlisberger5.102.706.6794.1 Aaron Rodgers6.40%1.55%7.48104.1 Tony Romo entered the NFL as a humble undrafted free agent from Eastern Illinois and leaves a superstar. With his release from the Cowboys on Tuesday and the announcement that he’s joining CBS as an analyst, Romo has completed an incredible, and perplexing, career arc.He started more games for the Cowboys than any quarterback not named Troy Aikman, went to four Pro Bowls and won the Cowboys three NFC East titles. Yet he never quite vaulted above the best QBs of his generation, and his lack of durability and postseason success complicate his legacy.Romo’s undrafted status is often dropped as a did-you-know trivia nugget, but it’s worth pointing out how rarely a talented quarterback slips entirely through the cracks in the draft-industrial complex. Of the 43 quarterbacks who made the Pro Bowl during Romo’s career, only three other than Romo weren’t drafted. Among all four, Romo was the only one with multiple appearances. In fact, Romo is the highest-rated undrafted passer of all time.1For quarterbacks who started at least 50 games. The only two whose totals and rate stats even compare are Warren Moon and Kurt Warner — both of whom have already been enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.But Romo’s résumé may not be enough for the Hall. Because the Hall of Fame’s selection committee winnows potential candidates over the course of a year’s selection cycle, players are often compared with others from their era who played the same position. And Romo’s career stats don’t stack up well against his contemporaries’.Romo was signed by the Cowboys in 2003 and spent three seasons waiting for an opportunity to play. When he finally did, he took over a 3-3 Cowboys team yet went 6-4 down the stretch, led the Cowboys to their first postseason appearance since 2003 and even made the Pro Bowl. He completed 65.3 percent of his passes, led the NFL in net and raw average yards per attempt and posted an NFL passer efficiency rating of 95.1.That 2006 season would be a microcosm of Romo’s career: a long time spent on the bench, statistical output that rivals the best of his generation, and eventually an underwhelming end. In the playoffs, Romo bobbled the snap on a game-winning field-goal attempt during a wild card game against the Seattle Seahawks, a moment that began a run of playoff futility that none of his peers experienced.Romo’s postseason record, 2-4, matches that of Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith’s — and the lightly regarded Smith will not receive any Hall of Fame consideration. Yet in the playoffs, Smith has a better touchdown rate, interception rate, passer rating and adjusted net yards per attempt than Romo.To compare Romo to his competition, I looked at all other quarterbacks who were active last season and who entered the league between 1998 — when Peyton Manning was drafted — and 2005 — two years after Romo was signed. To find the top-tier within that crowd, I then sorted them by career pass yard totals. There are plenty who passed for more yards and won more accolades than Romo. (Although Manning retired before last season, I kept him in for comparison.) Tony Romo5.702.707.0397.1 Tom Brady5.501.857.0997.2 Eli Manning199482004 In the end, Romo spent a decade in the conversation as one of the league’s best quarterbacks. But he was never quite the best — and thanks to the three years he spent on the bench at the beginning of his career and the 27 starts he missed from 2007 to 2015, his passing totals are perilously low to make the Hall of Fame.Unless voters go deep into what Romo did on the field, and look past how many years he wasn’t on it, he may be remembered as good, but not great.

Buckeye pitching staff helps Ohio State baseball ice Marshall 40

Redshirt-sophomore infielder Ryan Leffel (12) hits the ball during a game against Xavier March 19 at Bill Davis Stadium. OSU won, 10-3.Credit: Sam Harrington / Lantern photographerDespite cold weather still being a concern, the Ohio State baseball team came out hot against Marshall.The Buckeyes (16-7, 2-1) used strong pitching to keep the Thundering Herd (6-16, 3-6) as cold as the temperature was Wednesday, winning 4-0.After having to reschedule the game because of snow Tuesday, the teams took the field with the day’s high temperature in the mid-30s.Although the weather wasn’t what OSU had wanted, coach Greg Beals was happy the team could still play.“It wasn’t ideal baseball conditions, but our guys stayed on task and kept things rolling,” Beals said after the win.The starting duel featured a pair of lefties from Ohio in the Buckeyes’ freshman Zach Farmer and the Thundering Herd’s sophomore Alex Thackston.That battle didn’t last long, though.After a scoreless first, Thackston gave up a leadoff single to redshirt-junior Josh Dezse and followed by walking freshman Ronnie Dawson. After a wild pitch advanced the runners, freshman outfielder Troy Montgomery popped an RBI single to shallow right and abruptly ended Thackston’s day as he was taken out by Marshall coach Jeff Waggoner.Later in the inning, while Montgomery was caught in a pickle, Dawson stole home to give the Buckeyes a two-run lead.Meanwhile, Farmer stymied the Thundering Herd bats, giving up only one hit in five innings while striking out six.The only real danger Farmer faced was in the fifth, when he had a runner in scoring position with no outs. He responded with three strikeouts to end the threat.After being replaced on the weekend rotation by fellow freshman Tanner Tully, Farmer was happy to get back in the groove of things.“It felt real good bouncing back and getting my stuff down,” Farmer said. “When guys got on (in the fifth) I got a little worried, but I tried to stay calm and throw what I got.”Sophomore infielder Jacob Bosiokovic added to the lead with an RBI double in the fifth and a sacrifice fly in the seventh to end the scoring on the day.Though only four runs were scored, the Buckeye offense kept pressure on the Thundering Herd all game and forced them to use eight pitchers, compared to just three for OSU.“As a team, we want to try to score, obviously, many runs, but it’s important to compete every at-bat, never let up and push on the gas pedal when we can.” Bosiokovic said.The Buckeye pitching staff didn’t have nearly the same problem defensively as redshirt-senior Tyler Giannonatti and junior Trace Dempsey both pitched two scoreless innings to preserve the win for Farmer. Overall, the Thundering Herd could only muster three hits.“Our pitching staff is throwing the ball really well,” Beals said. “The last 27 innings we’ve pitched we’ve given up (two runs). You do that, you’re going to win a lot of baseball games. We’ve got confidence.”The Buckeyes are going to need the strong pitching to continue into the weekend as reigning Big Ten champion Indiana comes to Columbus for a three-game series.First pitch at Bill Davis Stadium at Nick Swisher Field is scheduled for Friday at 6:35 p.m. read more

Allegri trusts Dybala and Ronaldo will improve together

first_imgAfter Juventus’ victory against Bologna, manager Massimiliano Allegri expressed how happy he was for Dybala and Ronaldo’s improvement.Despite not scoring a goal this Wednesday against Bologna in Serie A, Cristiano Ronaldo played a good game for Juventus alongside Paulo Dybala for the first time this season at Juventus. The Vecchia Signora won 2-0 at their own stadium with a stellar performance from the Argentine where he scored the first goal and assisted Blaise Matuidi for the second one, proving that he is doing everything he can to improve his game alongside Cristiano Ronaldo and become a force to be reckoned with in Italian football. After a busy weekday of football all over Europe, only Juventus and Bayern München remain as the only clubs in the continent that still haven’t lost a single match in all competitions and that is mostly thanks to the sacrifice that all the players of the Italian club are making every single week. Even if he wasn’t able to score a goal, Cristiano Ronaldo is proving that he really wants Juventus to win everything they play and he is working hard on defense to help the squad make that happen. And if you add Paulo Dybala’s awakening to this effort that Cristiano is making, you get a team that truly can get a lot of success this season in every competition.Dybala: “We’ll see the strongest Juventus soon, With Cristiano Ronaldo there is enthusiasm, We are doing well, We must continue like this.” pic.twitter.com/RHvZy3l4UX— Cristiano Ronaldo (@TeamCRonaldo) September 26, 2018When the match Juventus played against Bologna started, it seemed like it was going to be a walk in the park for the Italian champions because they scored both goals early in the game. However, their rival really elevated their game during the rest of the match and even forced Juve’s defense to go to work several times throughout the match. Allegri wanted to recognize the work of every single player he believes made a good effort and he started with the Argentine forward who has been heavily criticized these past weeks: “Paulo [Dybala] had a good game like he did in Frosinone. It’s normal he needs to grow. They [Ronaldo and Dybala] played a good match tonight. The more they play together and the better they know each other, I think there is room for improvement. “I think playing with the three in front and Mandzukic in the middle makes both play better. Unfortunately Barzagli is 37, but he is still a different class of defender. Cancelo has the qualities to become the best full-back in the world. There’s a lot of compliments for what the boys did. In the first half the team was in charge of the pitch, we filled the pitch better than in the second half. We were more vulnerable and we played a few risky balls. We have to improve in this,” said Allegri after the victory.Juventus XI: Szczesny; Cuadrado, Rugani, Chiellini, Alex Sandro; Can, Pjanic, Bentancur; Dybala, Mandzukic, RonaldoSubs: Perin, Pinsoglio, Benatia, Bonucci, Cancelo, Matuidi, Bernardeschi, Kean#FrosinoneJuve #FinoAllaFine #ForzaJuveRick Karsdorp, Roma, Serie AKarsdorp reveals he had too much stress at Roma Manuel R.

Cristiano Ronaldo is going to meet his former Real Madrid manager in what will be the most important test that the Portuguese player will have to endure, at least on his short-lived Serie A career to far with the Vecchia Signora. Ancelotti is trailing behind Napoli very closely and they want to defeat them in order to end their unbeaten run and also reach those 18 points at the top of the table. The Italian manager has brought up Napoli’s most competitive side this season, many pundits in Italy are even saying that this version of the squad is even more effective than Maurizio Sarri’s team when the now Chelsea manager coached the squad in previous seasons. But ‘Carletto’ knows that all this praise will be good for nothing if his boys don’t manage to beat Juventus at their own stadium, next Saturday will be a very important days for both sides and we’ll all be watching closely to see if Paulo Dybala and Cristiano Ronaldo finally get to score goals during the same match.I’m back 🔙!

On the night of the derby at San Siro, there was a clear sensation, you could breathe it: Inter were going to win,” he added.“As I was leaving the stadium I said I hadn’t seen a side I liked so much in many years.”“If you play for Inter you need to have that belief, it was the same in my day and it’s like that now because battling with Juventus isn’t just a duty, it’s a pleasure,” he explained.“Inter have to keep doing that without saying so though, with their feet on the ground.”last_img read more
