SALT LAKE CITY — BYU fans, I’m sure, would rather just forget about the whole thing. But in the aftermath of Utah’s shocking beatdown of the Cougars Saturday night, we still have a few thoughts floating around . . .Despite the lopsided score in Provo, the idea that you never know what you’ll get from the Utah-BYU game still holds true. No, there wasn’t a blocked field goal in the last seconds, no overtime thriller or a late 4th-and-17 pass. But who in their right mind would have predicted a 44-point blowout by Utah on the Cougars’ home field? . . .Ute coach Kyle Whittingham has now been on the both extremes of the spectrum in the Utah-BYU series. Besides being on the winning end of the second-largest point total for Utah against BYU and second-biggest margin of victory as he was Saturday night, he was also a player for BYU in the biggest margin of victory over Utah and second-largest point total against Utah — BYU’s 56-6 victory in 1980 when he was a junior linebacker . . .I question those who said before the game that Utah had more reason to get up for the rivalry game than BYU. The Utes have a Pac-12 championship to play for, whether they win the rivalry game or not. For BYU, the Utah game is one of the biggest on its schedule and with no league championship to play for and the Cougars want to get the best possible win-loss record they can. Still, the fact that the Utes have won so many games in the series in recent years as the underdog makes you wonder if they are more motivated for the annual grudge match . . .Loved the red vs. blue jerseys, which was probably a first for the rivalry. And may be the last in Provo if the Cougars have their way . . .All the BYU fans calling for a new quarterback, a new offensive coordinator, a new coach or all of the above, need to take a deep breath. Saturday’s game still counts as just one loss. Sure the Cougs’ preseason hopes for a BCS berth or undefeated season are long gone, but the expectations were probably too high to begin with. Look for Bronco Mendenhall’s team to recover from another 1-2 start and finish strong . . .In fact, BYU may still end up winning more games than Utah this year. That’s the difference between Central Florida, Idaho, Idaho State, San Jose State and New Mexico State versus Washington, Arizona State, Pitt, Cal and Arizona.Give Mendenhall credit for taking responsibility for his team’s shocking big loss and not making excuses afterward. He sat through a long press conference after the game and didn’t blame officials or single out players, but instead put the blame on himself . . .Perhaps Ute fans who have been on Jordan Wynn’s case since the start of the season can keep quiet for awhile. While BYU’s mistakes — thanks in part to Utah’s defense — were a big reason for Saturday’s slaughter, Wynn played a big part in the victory. In fact, the 63-yard drive Wynn led just before halftime when he completed five straight passes, may have been the key to Utah’s win, since it gave the Utes the lead and momentum going into halftime. Then right after the half, Wynn led the Utes on a 6-play 75-yard drive to make it 21-10, after which things snowballed in the Utes’ favor . .. .Finally, I can’t agree with those who say the Utah-BYU rivalry game shouldn’t continue. Of course it should. I think BYU is more than willing to keep it going as long as it is an independent and needs to fill 12 slots on its schedule every year. Some Ute officials have hinted that the rivalry game may not be played indefinitely because of Utah’s football schedule, which allows for only three non-conference games every year. Rather than worry it might lose sometimes and hurt its overall record, perhaps Utah should adopt the attitude that it expects to beat the Cougars every year. I think local fans would always rather see games against a longtime rival than an out-of-state opponent, even if they don’t always win the rivalry game.email: firstname.lastname@example.org Related Whittingham thrilled with U.’s effort Cougars looking to bounce back

FILE – In this Saturday Aug. 28, 2018 file photo, Earth starts to cast its shadow on the moon during a complete lunar eclipse seen from Jakarta, Indonesia. Starting Sunday evening, Jan. 20, 2019, all of North and South America will be able to see the only total lunar eclipse of 2019 from start to finish this weekend. (AP Photo/Tatan Syuflana)CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. | Here comes a total lunar eclipse and supermoon, all wrapped into one.The moon, Earth and sun will line up this weekend for the only total lunar eclipse this year and next. At the same time, the moon will be ever so closer to Earth and appear slightly bigger and brighter than usual — a supermoon.“This one is particularly good,” said Rice University astrophysicist Patrick Hartigan. “It not only is a supermoon and it’s a total eclipse, but the total eclipse also lasts pretty long. It’s about an hour.”The whole eclipse starts Sunday night or early Monday, depending on location , and will take about three hours.It begins with the partial phase around 10:34 p.m. EST Sunday. That’s when Earth’s shadow will begin to nip at the moon. Totality — when Earth’s shadow completely blankets the moon — will last 62 minutes, beginning at 11:41 p.m. EST Sunday.If the skies are clear, the entire eclipse will be visible in North and South America, as well as Greenland, Iceland, Ireland, Great Britain, Norway, Sweden, Portugal and the French and Spanish coasts. The rest of Europe, as well as Africa, will have partial viewing before the moon sets.During totality, the moon will look red because of sunlight scattering off Earth’s atmosphere. That’s why an eclipsed moon is sometimes known as a blood moon. In January, the full moon is also sometimes known as the wolf moon or great spirit moon.So informally speaking, the upcoming lunar eclipse will be a super blood wolf — or great spirit — moon.In the U.S., the eclipse will begin relatively early Sunday evening, making it easier for children to stay up and enjoy the show. Plus the next day is a federal holiday, with most schools closed. But the weather forecast for much of the U.S. doesn’t look good.Parents “can keep their kids up maybe a little bit later,” said, Hartigan, who will catch the lunar extravaganza from Houston. “It’s just a wonderful thing for the whole family to see because it’s fairly rare to have all these things kind of come together at the same time.”“The good thing about this is that you don’t need any special equipment,” he added.Asia, Australia and New Zealand are out of luck. But they had prime viewing last year, when two total lunar eclipses occurred.The next total lunar eclipse won’t be until May 2021.As for full-moon supermoons, this will be the first of three this year. The upcoming supermoon will be about 222,000 miles away. The Feb. 19 supermoon will be a bit closer and one in March will be the farthest.The Associated Press Health & Science Department receives support from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute’s Department of Science Education.

Upd. at 16:11 Sport EN CET Alexis Sanchez has warned his team that stopping Lionel Messi and Co will be very difficult. 21/02/2016 Alexis moved there in the summer of 2014 and says he has no regrets, though admits it was not simple to walk away from the Camp Nou. “It wasn’t easy to leave Barcelona. I fulfilled a dream when I moved there – to play in Spain and for the champions – but very few players stay in the same club all their life. To leave is normal. “We know it won’t be easy,” the Arsenal and former Barcelona forward told the Sunday Mirror. “[Messi] is the best footballer in the world, without a doubt. It’s very difficult to stop him but we will work on it. And remember, Barcelona is not only Leo…” “I wanted a new project, a new experience. And with so many attacking players at Barca it was a good choice to go… it has been a positive move and I love it at Arsenal.”

Powered by Firework In a recent interview, Glen Johnson expressed his grief over the attitude of Saido Berahino at Stoke City. According to Glen Johnson, the attitude of Saido Berahino was unacceptable. From the first day of the training session, Glen Johnson did not like the approach of this footballer.Advertisement The first thing, a player should learn to have right kind of attitude. The young players will learn this attitude from the senior players. So, this is the most important thing for a footballer. Saido Berahino always tried to create some discomfort in the dressing room. He wanted to gain attention of others with doing several activities.Advertisement According to Glen Johnson, Berahino repeated the same thing everyday. For this attitude, the teammates of Berahino also did not like him at Stoke City. Meanwhile, Stoke City released Berahino and now he would be an free agent. According to the sources, the Burundi International might join a Belgian side in the next few days.However, some footballers are not liking the comments of Glen Johnson. The footballer of Sheffield United, Morrison told that the comments of Glen Johnson could have destroyed the career of Saido Berahino. The football pundits should restrain themselves from making these type of comments in future.Advertisement https://mobile.twitter.com/talkSPORT/status/1159422830691475469 Advertisement
Usain Bolt, the ‘world’s fastest man’, will be putting Formula One title favourite Lewis Hamilton under starter’s orders for what could be a decisive US Grand Prix this weekend.The eight-time Olympic gold medallist sprinter, who retired after the world championships in London last August, has been enlisted to send the field off for the pre-race formation lap at the Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas.Mercedes driver Hamilton, who can clinch his fourth title on Sunday if he finishes first or second and other results go his way, might also be giving the Jamaican a quick passenger ride in a road car earlier in the day.US-based Liberty Media, who took over Formula One in January and have talked of treating every race like a Super Bowl, are keen to pump up the show at the sole round in the United States.The pre-race programme has been expanded so that Michael Buffer, renowned for introducing boxing title fights with the call, “Let’s get ready to rumble”, can present the 20 drivers individually to the crowd.Soul singer Stevie Wonder will perform, with the Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders going through their routines on the starting grid.“We continue to layer in new elements at each grand prix and this innovative driver presentatation format seemingly was an appropriate addition for Austin,” said Formula One’s commercial manager Sean Bratches in a statement.“The USA is, without a doubt, the country where sports events are seen as entertainment that goes above and beyond the purely sporting contest.“We want to do something that positions Formula One as breaking the boundaries, between sport and a show,” he added.A mechanical bucking bronco will also be installed in the paddock for anyone brave enough to give it a go.Pink strips have meanwhile been painted along the pitlane and around the track as part of a breast-cancer awareness initiative, with tyre supplier Pirelli colour-coding pink their ultrasoft tyres.Organisers have also secured a schedule change for qualifying, with the Saturday session starting two hours later to reduce the gap between the track action and a Justin Timberlake concert in the evening.Hamilton is 59 points clear of Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel with four races remaining and will win the title if he scores 16 points more than the German on Sunday.
– Excelsior 2 – 1 St. Catherine – Campion 0 – 6 Jamaica College – Cumberland 0 – 1 STATHS – St George’s College 3 – 0 Papine – Kingston College 2 – 0 Calabar – Tivoli 0 – 1 Innswood Yesterday’s ISSA/Digicel Manning Cup Results: Anthony Patrick, coach of St Catherine High School’s ISSA/Digicel Manning Cup team, knew a bevy of schools would be gunning for their heads because of their strong start to the competition and as such made adjustments defensively to stave off the attacks. However, Excelsior High School breached their back-line twice to end their dream start to season yesterday after a 2-1 win at their Courtney Walsh Oval home on Mountain View Avenue. St Catherine came into the contest unblemished, having scored 36 goals without conceding. Their record thrust them into spotlight as one of the schools that could make a deep run in the competition this year, but Patrick believes his side needs to plug the holes in their defence in order for that to happen. “We have to make some adjustments defensively. We knew all season that we were having some problems defensively and we tried to correct it, but we have to do better,” Patrick said. “We have two centre-backs who are six footers and they made some five footers get around them today.” He continued: “We knew Excelsior were going to come like this. The first game we beat them 2-0 at home. We got a little bit carried away today (yesterday) but we still have a lot of confidence and when you look at the changes that we made today you could see the difference.” Rohan Beadle put Excelsior in front in the 35th minute when he struck the ball over the head of the St Catherine custodian, who was caught off his line and when Damorney Hutchinson headed home in the 62nd minute to double their lead, it sent students and supporters the Mountain View-based institution into delirium. John-Christoff Pringle threatened a comeback for St Catherine in the 73rd minute, when he fired home a rebound, but Excelsior’s constant press suggested that it would be hard for them to get back. Patrick, who led Bridgeport High School to Manning Cup titles in 2001 and 2006, believes his side still has what it takes to go all the way. “We know that we have the team to go all the way and as I said, once we make the adjustments then we should be tough to beat,” Patrick said. Excelsior’s coach, Daniel Riley, said the victory should serve as a warning to those who are not taking his team’s title hunt seriously. “We are going after it so if you don’t want to take us serious we will just continue to score and beat teams,” Riley said. The result means that both teams are locked on 18 points but St Catherine lead the group on goal difference. Adjustments needed
We’vealways had a problem with crime in Guyana, but the situation has become untenable under the Coalition.We have a President who defends that the mother of all crimes is narcotics, when in fact it is poverty and social disparities that engender crime, including narco-trade. At the same time, President Granger has cultivated the image of being a criminal-lover by releasing almost one hundred prisoners to date, without ensuring that proper rehabilitation measures were implemented to guarantee their successful reintegration in society. It is therefore unsurprising that quite a few of the same pardoned criminals went right back to re-engaging in illicit activities, some of which they were previously condemned.At the same time, we have a Public Security Minister, Khemraj Ramjattan, who, albeit being forced to dwell in Granger’s shade, was handed a diminished portfolio which is a now but a mere shadow of what the Home Affairs Ministry used to be. But even with his reduced responsibilities, Ramjattan has to date been incapable of fighting crime, much less containing it.The alarming crime rate is intrinsically tied to several factors, notwithstanding the President’s notorious leniency towards criminals. Socioeconomic issues, such as chronic unemployment, the current economic stagnation, the lack of private investments, inaccessibility to higher learning for young people, or decent jobs for young professionals, etc, all engender poverty, which in turn contributes to the increase in crime.Perhaps it is the President’s laissez-faire attitude and the Public Security Ministry’s incompetence in cracking down on crime, that have invested criminals with a sense of immunity from law and order, resulting in their reinforced brazen attacks on Guyanese from all backgrounds combined. But if we can be certain of one thing, it is that Guyanese are fed-up of the Government’s inaptitude in proposing a durable, long-term strategy to fight crime and its root cause. The recent gunning down of young man in Albouystown has resulted in the people of the neighbourhood in question, to demand that President Granger “step-up” to put a muzzle on crime.But in all appearance their call has gone unanswered and President Granger continues to show reticence in holding the much awaited press conference he owes to the Guyanese people. One might rightfully venture that the President of the Cooperative Republic of Guyana is afraid to acknowledge his cumulated failures to people, but also, that he has no regard for democratic principles such as transparency and accountability.Today, however, I join my voice to those of thousands of my frustrated country-women and men, and ask President Granger to come out and face us, the people of Guyana. President Granger must tell us what he has done so far to secure the future of Guyana’s youth, to lift us out of poverty and by extent, break the vicious cycle of crime.Why is it that contrary to his campaign promises, President Granger claims that it is not the Government’s responsibility to provide jobs for young people? Why will the President and his administration not take responsibility for the thousands of jobs lost in both the private and public sectors since 2015? Is it not the Government’s responsibility to create sustainable policies which stimulate economic growth and job creation? Is this President Granger’s definition of a socially inclusive and cohesive society?Why is cook-up rice, plantain chips and cassava chips the President’s best employment strategy on his Public Interest show? When should we expect real solutions to Guyana’s problems on the Public Interest show? Where is President Granger’s long-promised crime-fighting strategy and what are all those military-trained advisors who were hired, doing to contain and reduce crime?If President Granger cannot be a man of his words and live up to his own promises, then perhaps he should stop wasting time and hard-earned tax-dollars on his weekly propaganda dubbed Public Interest, and focus the country’s resources on tackling poverty and crime.President Granger and his administration have done little to prove their worth so far. Instead, they are draining the energy out of Guyana and sucking the marrow out of our people.
Liberia-Investing for Business Expansion (IBEX) has trained more than 20 bankers and 45 local entrepreneurs including farmers on the process of agribusiness lending in Monrovia.The weeklong-exercise was intended to increase banking staffers’ knowledge and broaden their understanding of agribusiness lending, proper client appraisals, deal structuring and loan processing, as well as requirements for borrowers.It was organized by IBEX and facilitated by United States-based Volunteer Executive (VE), Allyn Lamb. All nine commercial banks in Liberia were represented by their risk managers and relationship and credit officers.Topics covered included Business Plans, Agricultural Risk Management, Understanding the Market Opportunities, Value Chain Financing, Basic Farm Record Keeping, Risk Rating, Evaluating Loan Requests, and Problem Solving.IBEX Chief of Party (COP) Watchen Bruce, who spoke at the opening, said Liberia’s agriculture sector is a potential source of employment for it people but is yet to experience any significant growth in the country.She further said that commercial banks are not willing to finance the sector and their low level of involvement is partly responsible for the prevailing situation in the country.Banks seem reluctant to lend to smallholder farmers and agribusinesses, because they consider agriculture a high-risk sector, she said. However, Madam Bruce said there are ongoing efforts to improve the situation for Liberians. She recalled that the newly signed agreement between the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and Afriland First Bank, aimed at increasing agricultural lending through an enhanced relationship and capacity, will help provide working capital for operations, inputs, or equipment to smallholder farmers. Archie Hanky, staff of the Liberia Bank for Development and Investment’s Credit Appraisal and Development Lending Department, observed that agribusiness lending is new to Liberia and banks do not want to risk lending to clients involved in agriculture.Mr. Usurf Barh, Credit Manager of Afriland First Bank, said smallholder farmers play a significant role in the Liberian economy.He therefore called on fellow bankers to give farmers the opportunity and increased access to credit to ensure growth and expansion of their businesses.Mai Cole, Risk Analyst at United Bank for Africa, described the training as insightful. “The new knowledge and skills acquired from this training would now enable me to properly appraise agricultural SMEs,” she said.
