I won’t give up – Paralysed and in pain, former tae kwon do star holds on to dreams

first_img MIRACLE There’s a lot that’s been said about the triumph of the human spirit over adversity, and Oshane Murray is living proof of what a person can overcome when the mind kicks into gear. The 23-year-old was on a clear path to achievement as a former Calabar High School student, attending the University of Technology (UTech) pursuing a degree in electrical engineering and representing Jamaica at international and local events in tae kwon do. His life changed on January 30, 2013, when, during a cheerleading routine at UTech, he slipped and fell. “It’s when I was trying to get up I realised that I couldn’t. I didn’t feel a thing. I was very calm and laughing. When I was trying to move, I couldn’t, and everyone was saying ‘Oshane, Oshane, get up now nuh’ and I said ‘I can’t move’ and they were like, ‘Oshane stop joking around’. Then the girls started screaming and there was chaos,” he recalled of that day. He was taken to the hospital, where he learned he had a broken vertebrae in his spine. “The doctors were saying I should be dead based on the X-Ray ;that it’s a miracle I’m a alive and conscious,” he told The Gleaner. After almost a year in hospital, Murray was released. He got an infection a few days before his release, but was deemed well enough to go home just before Christmas 2013. “When I first came home, it was problematic because nobody really knew how to react or how to address me being in this situation. Even though they were trying their best, sometimes them just trying just makes it worse,” Murray said. It was during this period Murray, who turns 24 in May, learned who his real friends were. They turned out to be his teammates, his classmates and some family members. He returned to classes at UTech in September 2015 through the assistance of his coach Jason McKay, who provided him with a driver as well as an assistant, who writes his notes during classes. Exams have proven a little challenging, but he is coping. “I do exams in a room by myself. I draw and I talk, but that’s a next headache in itself. Especially when I have to draw, it’s hard to describe how to draw stuff, especially when you’re doing a lot of calculation courses. Sometimes in the middle of the exams, I get dizzy spells (too).” The thing he said he misses most is the fact that he can no longer train as a martial artist. However, he has found a way to contribute and has returned to training, even if in a different capacity. “I just want to finish what I started … My goal is that I just want to be independent. I don’t know how long it will take, but I will. “I don’t know what’s pushing me but I just don’t want to give up. I don’t know what’s going to happen and that fear of not knowing is what’s pushing me forward,” he said.last_img read more

At 37, Venus Williams looking for a 6th Wimbledon title

And she’s expecting the same kind of atmosphere despite the unfamiliar opponent.“I don’t think it’s going to be different. A final is a final,” Muguruza said. “Only one’s going to win. … The racket has to talk.”Besides her experience on the court, Muguruza will also have some experience behind her off it. She has been working with 1994 Wimbledon champion Conchita Martinez recently.“I think she’s helping me to deal with the stress of the tournament, because it’s a long tournament,” Muguruza said. “So she just knows how to prepare, how to train, what to do.“Not that I’m doing something different, honestly. But to have her by my side gives me also this little confidence on having someone that has won before.”Williams and Muguruza have played each other four times before, and the American has won three of them. They have never before played on grass, though.“It’s good that she’s played her before, and that she’s beaten her. So she knows what’s to come,” Martinez said of Saturday’s match. “She just has to play tennis, and not worry about who’s favored or who isn’t favored. She needs to think about the next point and nothing else.”When Martinez won at Wimbledon for her only major, she beat 37-year-old Martina Navratilova in the final. Williams is the oldest Wimbledon finalist since then.Age, however, seems to be an advantage for Williams.“I think it’s wonderful to have the opportunity to play well and to be strong and have experience,” Williams said. “So I think experience can either work against you or for you. I like to think it’s working for me.” Marcosian mode: Duterte threatens to arrest water execs ‘one night’ Venus Williams of the United States returns to Britain’s Johanna Konta during their Women’s Singles semifinal match on day nine at the Wimbledon Tennis Championships in London Thursday, July 13, 2017.

She missed some big tournaments, and made several early exits at the majors.But she has bounced back, playing some of her best tennis over the last 12 months. She reached the Wimbledon semifinals last year, and the Australian Open final this year. Dy: We don’t think of ourselves as reserves On Saturday, she’ll be playing for the Venus Rosewater Dish for the ninth time in her 20th Wimbledon appearance.“There’s still a lot to be done. I have one more match that I’d like to be the winner of,” Williams said. “I have to go out there and take it and play well.”The person on the other side of the net also has experience playing in the last weekend on Centre Court. The 23-year-old Muguruza played for the title in 2015, losing to Venus’ little sister, Serena Williams.Serena isn’t at Wimbledon this year because she is pregnant and taking the rest of the season off. But Venus will likely be checking in with her for some advice ahead of Saturday’s match.“Serena did play her in a final,” Venus said. “I definitely will ask her. I’m sure she’s going to give me hopefully some things that will make a difference for me in the match.”ADVERTISEMENT Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

first_imgA man who previously spent 56 months in prison after being convicted for larceny on Monday appeared before the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts, this time for allegedly stealing a motorcycle.Randy Joseph, 34, of Lot 24 Country Road, Buxton, East Coast Demerara, denied that on January 8, 2018 at Waterloo Street, Georgetown, he stole one motorcycle valued $245,000, property of Godfrey Abel.Police Prosecutor Dellon Sullivan objected to bail being granted to the accused based on the seriousness of the offence. He revealed that the Virtual Complainant (VC) went to Waterloo Street where he parked his motorcycle and went into a hotel.However, when he returned, his motorcycle was nowhere to be found. As such, the matter was reported to the Police.A number of days later, the defendant was stopped on the said motorcycle with registration number CJ 664 and he failed to provide the Police with the relevant documents.As such, he was taken to the Vigilance Police Station where he was charged with the offence.Magistrate Judy Latchman remanded the defendant to prison until January 29, 2018 when he would next appear in court.last_img read more

Klopp admits he has spoken to Gerrard about Anfield return

first_imgLiverpool manager Jurgen Klopp admits he has spoken to Steven Gerrard about the prospect of him returning to Anfield – but not with a view to making a first-team comeback.The 35-year-old midfielder is currently in the Major League Soccer off-season following his summer move to the Los Angeles Galaxy.Gerrard had been told by former Reds manager Brendan Rodgers he could train at Melwood while he was back in the UK, and Klopp is happy to honour that promise.However, there has been no offer of a potential return to a playing role and, with Gerrard set to resume pre-season training in mid-January, there is no chance of a short-term loan, as the likes of David Beckham and Thierry Henry exploited during their time in the United States.“Stevie has a contract with LA Galaxy, he loves this club and he is a legend and when his contract has ended we can talk about different stuff,” said Klopp.“We will find for sure something for Stevie when he comes back and whatever he wants to do we will help him but not at this moment – we are in the middle of the season.“Do you think he should play at this moment or next year. No? Why did you ask me?“I spoke with Stevie; one phone call and a few messages and I told him ‘When you are here of course you can come whenever you want, you can train with us if you think it is good for you’.“Of course our doors are always open for him, that is clear. But nothing else.”The prospect of Liverpool buying back their former talisman, who has one year remaining on his Galaxy contract, seems equally remote.Gerrard himself has admitted he probably has only one year left of his playing career.“It could be my last season as a footballer. I certainly don’t want to feel like I’m feeling right now come next year,” he told reporters in America last week.“I’d love to go out on a high. It’s a long season, and I only came here for the last four months but I’ll certainly be better for the experience next year.”There does remain a chance, however, he could end up back at Liverpool on the backroom staff in some capacity in the future.

MURDER OF DONEGAL MAN: ‘I SAW MEN KICK HIM TO DEATH’ – PARTNER

first_imgTHE PARTNER of Malin Head man William McKeeney has told the trial of two men accused of killing him how she saw the fatal attack from the window of their Glasgow flat, but didn’t realise at first what was going on.Anne Marie Newlands, 48, had been waiting for William to return home when she became concerned about the behaviour of young Asian men.She told the High Court in Kilmarnock: “I was looking out for Willie, but the second time I looked out I thought they were breaking a piece of furniture. “They were kicking and stamping on something and they were both doing it.“I decided I would phone Willie and tell him to watch out because there were two boys and I didn’t like the look of them.”Asif Rehman, 20, and Adel Ishaq, 19, both deny the racially aggravated murder of Mr McKeeney, 57, in Pollokshields, Glasgow, in January.The Malin Head man had been living in Scotland, having moved there to get work.Ms Newlands the pair “sauntered around the corner” after the incident.She managed to stand on a trunk to get a better view out of the window and then realised the two men had been kicking a person.“I ran outside and saw it was Willie. He was very battered, and one side of his face was all swollen and his eye was closed. I thought his teeth had come through his top lip,” she said.Labourer William, who was Ms Newlands partner of 12 years, had visited two pubs before phoning her to say he was on his way home.Ms Newlands told the court: “I was panicking because no one else was there. 

I tried to speak to him, but realised he was not responding so I phoned 999.The recorded emergency call was played to the court.The controller could be heard talking Ms Newlands through mouth-to-mouth resuscitation, telling her:  “You’re doing really well. Stay strong for him.”William died later in hospital.Rehman and Ishaq deny the racially 
aggravated murder of Mr McKeeney.MURDER OF DONEGAL MAN: ‘I SAW MEN KICK HIM TO DEATH’ – PARTNER was last modified: October 5th, 2012 by BrendaShare 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:MURDER OF DONEGAL MAN: ‘I SAW MEN KICK HIM TO DEATH’ – PARTNERlast_img read more

Cowboys limit Brahmas’ offense to 83 yards in shutout

first_imgCHINO — Normally, when you are penalized only once and don’t turn the ball over, it’s going to be a pretty good night. That was not the case for Diamond Bar on Thursday night however, as an impenetrable Chino defense, and the explosive R.J. Stanford and Ryan McFoy combined for a 41-0 Chino victory in a Sierra League opener on Thursday night at Chino High School. “We played very good defense. They’ve got a very good quarterback, and we got pressure on him,” Chino coach John Monger said. “Our offensive line played very well, too.” There wasn’t much to find fault with. Chino’s defense hurried Diamond Bar quarterback Jeff Jansen all night long, limiting the Brahmas to 83 yards of total offense and three first downs. — Pete Marshall can be reached at (909) 483-9362. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Each of Chino’s first 11 plays were runs to either running back Stanford or fullback Ryan Shawhan. The fifth play was the first of three Stanford touchdowns, a 14-yard run. The next six set up Chino’s unnecessary but effective passing game. The first of two Art Gracia touchdown passes, a beautiful 22-yard rainbow to Orlando Brazier gave the Cowboys a 14-0 lead. A Stanford 2-yard run in the final minute before the half gave the Cowboys (5-1 overall, 1-0 league) a 21-0 lead at the break. Chino turned on the afterburners in the third quarter, scoring three touchdowns in the first 4 1/2 minutes of the second half. Stanford scored on a 49-yard run, McFoy returned a punt 65 yards for a touchdown and McFoy caught a short pass from Gracia and turned that into an 88-yard touchdown. last_img read more

Women are the best people to work in digital

She said digital was about communication. “We as women are good at it because we have high levels of empathy.”The conference was held on 16 and 17 August 2017 at Emperors Palace in Ekurhuleni.Since 2003, Top Women has been South Africa’s leading gender empowerment brand, celebrating visionary organisations – both public and private sector – that prioritise gender empowerment as integral to their strategy for growth and success, it claims.

It is important for women to tell their stories: “You are your own person, you are unique and you have your own strengths.”Disruptive digital, disruptive womenLee Ming said that although women were intimidated by technology, they were naturally good at all things digital. “Women should embrace digital. See it as something you can pursue,” she said. “Building a great brand is beyond building a brand for the company you work for, but also for yourself as a brand.”Jamie Whittaker, global chief digital officer at Barloworld Equipment, shared her sentiment. “Digital touches every part of the business. It’s the new way of doing business. One of the key things in digital is empathy.”He added: “Absolutely, women have a more mature sense of empathy. They are the key people for digital.”Whittaker said the key lessons he had learned in digital was that you must be willing to learn and be adaptable. Digital was not just the thing on your phone. “Digital is embracing new processes.”Jayshree Naidoo, the head of Standard Bank Incubator and interim chief executive officer of Feenix.org, said the future of learning and growth was digital. “We help entrepreneurs and some people may say it’s not digital, but we have to look at things like data analytics. We look at people’s behaviour (online). We try to make things relatable to people when they do not understand the space.”Professor Glenda Gray (left), the first women to lead the South African Medical Research Council and leader of the first clinical HIV vaccines trials in the country, says women have an obligation to give opportunities to other women, speaking at the Standard Bank Top Women Conference held on 16-17 August 2017. She is pictured with the moderator, Lullu Krugel, KPMG chief economist.Digital literacy a challengeFeenix.org, Naidoo explained, was a crowdfunding platform that helped to raise funds for students’ tertiary fees. In the past six months, it had raised R1.3-million and fully funded 27 students.However, by the end of the year there was still a R35-billion fees deficit, she said.Through Feenix.org, it had become apparent that literacy levels were extremely low regarding the use of digital platforms, said Naidoo. “A total of 400 students’ applications are live, but we had more than 1,000 students who started with the application. Their documents are not completed.”Many students relied on other students for computers. Through this, said Naidoo, they could use data to teach students to become more digitally literate, and also to find potential candidates for learning programmes relating to digital literacy.Jonathan Ayache, general manager of Uber South Africa, said when Uber was brought to Africa, it had to train people in the use of smart phones. “The level of digital literacy has increased. Today we don’t have to do the training.“There are incredibly passionate people here [in South Africa]. They are problem-solvers at heart and have ‘how are we going to make this happen’ attitudes.”The awardsSome of the winners announced on Twitter:A lovely evening at @SBTopWomen Awards!
