25 – The last 28 goal shots received by Thibaut Courtois in @The league:👐👐👐👐👐👐👐👐👐👐👐⚽👐👐👐👐👐👐👐👐👐⚽👐👐👐⚽👐👐Stellar. pic.twitter.com/cQISFxghNh– OptaJose (@OptaJose) February 10, 2020The accumulated success of Courtois is 76.32% in the 27 games he has played with Madrid in all competitions and 78.43% in his 20 League matches under the goal. Since November, it has not dropped from 75% success in series of five or six games, maintaining indexes above 85% and even 90% during some sections of the competition. This campaign adds fourteen games leaving the goal to zero: 11 of the League, 2 of the Champions League and the final of the Spanish Super Cup.Real Madrid has made profits from the solidity of Courtois. The three points of advantage that the whites have are explained by the matches in which the Zidane strikers have been unable to score, but the Belgian has managed to keep the goal to zero: the derby and the Classic of the first round and the duels in the Bernabéu against Betis and Athletic. Mallorca has been the only game that, without scoring Madrid, Courtois conceded a goal. In Barcelona, however, of the four meetings that Messi and company did not see the door, Ter Stegen only managed to leave the goal once to zero, precisely against Madrid. Three points that make a difference in the table. A radical change that has coincided with the resurgence of the team and to which Courtois has also contributed with stops that have contributed to build the current advantage that Madrid enjoys over Barça in the LaLiga race. The percentage of Courtois stops at the beginning of the season fell below 40%. His last six games until Mallorca averaged 38.7% of saves on goal saved. The defeat at Son Moix meant for Courtois, as for the rest of the team, a turning point. In the next five games, no goal was scored and he stopped the eleven shots on goal from Galatasaray (in two games), Leganés, Betis and Eibar. Courtois has spent less than four months of being in the pillory and suffering multiple criticisms for the ease with which he conceded goals to receive the award for best player of LaLiga Santander in the month of January. An award on his way to the first Zamora trophy for a Real Madrid goalkeeper in twelve years (the last for a white goalkeeper got it: Casillas in 2007-2008) and confirms the improvement of the Belgian goalkeeper, who has gone from fitting more than half of the shots on goal that he suffered to go through some streaks in which everything stopped. From the goal scored by Willian José in minute 2 of the Royal Society’s league visit to the Bernabéu (November 23, 2019), Courtois has stopped 25 of the 28 shots between the three clubs he has received in LaLiga, according to Opta data.
Some of the tools donated to the residents to enhance their clean-up exercises.Residents at the back of the United Methodist Church Headquarters in Sinkor, Monrovia have commenced a community garden and sanitation project with the aim to keep the community clean of weeds.The project site covers the area of Cheeseman Avenue, between 10th and 13 Streets. The initial financing of the project in the form of donation of nearly US$300 worth of tools and other materials was provided by a newly launched not-for-profit corporation, Jersey-Liberia, Incorporated (JLI), founded by former Monsterrado County Superintendent Rupel E. Marshall, Sr.During the recent launch of the project in the Marshall Compound in Sinkor, Mr. Marshall informed residents that through JLI, he is ready to join them and others to keep the community clean and promote economic empowerment of the residents.Marshall explained that JLI was formed to carry out charitable, humanitarian and economic activities that would improve communities, and advance the lives of the residents.He declared that the corporation takes its name from President George Weah’s call made during his inauguration that all Liberians are to now wear [team] Jersey-Liberia, meaning Liberians should be united and work towards the development of the country through peace and capacity-building.Jersey-Liberia, Inc. was incorporated on May 28, 2018, in Monrovia by Rupel E.

Self-confessed ‘Bishop’, Joseph Persaud who was late last year accused of raping one of his female church members was on Tuesday slapped with a rape charge and taken before the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts.Joseph Persaud during his appearance in court on TuesdayThe 37-year-old man, of Lot 62 Avenue A, New Scheme, Diamond, East Bank Demerara (EBD), was arraigned for raping a 23-year-old woman when he appeared before Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan.In court on Tuesday, he was granted $350,000 bail. As a condition of bail, he was required to surrender his passport to the court and stay 50 feet away from the Virtual Complainant (VC) and her relatives, as well as all witnesses in the matter. Additionally, he is also required to report to the Ruimveldt Police Station on a weekly basis. The case will continue on January 18, 2018.Reports are Persaud, who officiates at a church in Parfaite Harmonie, West Bank Demerara, was arrested on November 9, 2017 and taken to the Grove Police Station, where he was informed that a rape allegation had been made against him.The victim on national television admitted that she and the pastor shared a relationship, but after his wife reportedly found out, it ended. She claimed that the pastor had stalked her since the relationship ended and continued to harass her.On the night of the incident, the victim alleged he stripped her and had sexual intercourse with her against her will.A report was made to the Police and Persaud was arrested.Since his arrest, several recordings of phone conversations allegedly between the two were leaked to the media.On one of the recordings, the voice of a male, purportedly the pastor, was heard begging for the victim to drop the case.After an initial file was compiled on the matter and sent to the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP), Shalimar Ali-Hack, it was recommended that Persaud be released on station bail.The DPP also requested additional information from the Police pertaining to several aspects of the case, and the file was subsequently resent.The final advice was for the pastor to be charged.
Sexual Offences ActA recent Court of Appeal ruling which overturned the decision of former Chief Justice Ian Chang in relation to amendments to the Sexual Offences Act of 2010 has been welcomed by Women and Child Rights Commissioner Nicole Cole, who says she is wholly heartened by the ruling which was handed down last week, and that the decision taken by the Court is synonymous of a progressive society.Women and Child Rights Commissioner Nicole Cole“This ruling is absolutely brilliant for us as a society that would like to be seen as progressive, prosperous, and humane; that seeks to ensure the most vulnerable are protected,” Cole stated.The case stemmed from a High Court ruling which outlined that a magistrate’s decision to send rape accused Ray Bacchus to stand trial in the High Court based on a paper committal was unlawful.Attorney Mursaline Bacchus had claimed that the paper committal, which is an amendment made to the Sexual Offences Act, undermines the rights of his client, based on the provisions in the Constitution.He claimed that the amendment does not allow his client to test the credibility of witness statements at the magistrate’s courts through cross examination.Chang had ruled in favour of Bacchus’s arguments: that the amendment to the Sexual Offences Act 2010 were unlawful; but the ruling was challenged by the State, and a decision was handed down last week.In June, the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP), Shalimar Ali-Hack, presented her arguments in Court and gave reasons for her contention that the amendment to the Sexual Offences Act were not unconstitutional.The DPP contended that the provisions of that part of the Sexual Offences Act, Number 7 of 2010, which purports to give jurisdiction and power to the magistrate to commit an accused person to a High Court trial based on a paper committal, does not contravene the rights of that person based on Article 144(1) and 144(2) of the Constitution.The article 144(1) and 144(2) of the Constitution reads, “Every person who is charged with a criminal offence shall be permitted to defend him or herself before the court in person or by a legal representative of his or her own choice.”She noted that in paper committals the accused is afforded a fair hearing, in that in a matter of months his case will be set for trial in the High Court, whereas in the case of Preliminary Inquiry, the process takes much longer. In that regard, the DPP contended that the paper committal benefits both the victim and the accused.Cole said she agrees with the decision even more so because sexual violence, especially against children, is occurring with impunity every day in Guyana, and it must be stopped.She said, “There must be no mercy for the merciless and men who rape children, who destroy dreams of happy childhood, leaving death and destruction in the lives of Guyanese children!“It’s a vicious, predatory cycle whereby (mostly) adult men prey upon both girls and boys sexually, and the law must be seen as a deterrent for their abnormal pedophilia appetite.”Meanwhile, Cole recalled that the Guyana Human Rights Association has done research dating back to 2004, which points to low, and in some cases no, convictions for sexual offences in Guyana’s judicial system.She said this new Sexual Offenses Law was therefore seen as revolutionary in capturing those paedophiles who prey upon children, while reminding that women and children endure the brunt of sexual violence.The Child Rights Commissioner also pointed to recent statistics from the Child Care and Protection Agency (CCPA), which points to over 400 cases of abuse against children reported in the first six months of 2018.“Those 238 reported child rape cases for the month of May, 2018 should occasion nausea in us as a nation… Where are we headed as a society if we fail to protect our children from sexual predators?”In the previous year, the CCPA reported that there were 841 sexual abuse (rape) cases, with 722 girls and 119 boys experiencing sexual violence. Toddlers were included, as 11 boys in the 0-3 category were reported to the CCPA as being victims of sexual abuse, and there were 32 boys in the 4-7 category.“46 boys in the 8-13 category and 30 boys in the 14-18 category. There were 28 girls in the 0-3 category reported to the CCPA as being victims of sexual VIOLENCE, with 61 girls in the 4-7 category; 275 in the 8-13 category; and 358 in the 14-18 category for the year ending 2017,” she added.Cole said that for the month of January, the CCPA recorded 9 boys and 79 girls as victims of sexual violence. “This points to a pattern of widespread paedophilia in Guyana!” she added, making calls again for a Sexual Offences Register to be operationalised in Guyana, to help identify ‘sexual predators.’

1 Chelsea manager Guus Hiddink Guus Hiddink has admitted he has been approached to manage in the Chinese Super League.The 69-year-old Dutchman was installed as Chelsea caretaker boss in December after Jose Mourinho’s departure, but says he had chances to manage in China.“I had some possibilities to go there in the recent past,” said Hiddink, who did not expand on the comment.Ramires was sold to Jiangsu Suning by Chelsea last month for a reported £25million as part of a wider investment in football, with other players also heading to the Chinese Super League.Jiangsu Suning are managed by former Chelsea defender Dan Petrescu, while Sven Goran Eriksson and Luis Felipe Scolari are also bosses in China.Hiddink reckons China is an attractive option for many, but so too is the Premier League, which has a global appeal and will soon have a further influx of cash from the new broadcast coverage deal, which is worth £5billion domestically.“Of course when you travel around the world, the Premier League is so attractive, attracting a lot of people,” added Hiddink, whose side play Manchester United on Sunday.“In the biggest cities to the smallest villages, wherever in the world there is a satellite showing Premier League.“(And) clubs in England cannot complain about having no income in the near future.”
Many have been pulled from rubble in Nepal but more than 2,000 have been killed following the massive earthquake.A 54 year old Donegal woman is among 14 Irish citizens who have been listed as missing after the massive earthquake in Nepal.Jacqueline Bushe is believed to be a teacher who is originally from Co Donegal who was teaching in the area.She is among a list of Irish people listed as missing by the Red Cross with more than 2,000 people feared dead. It is not known yet where exactly in the county Ms Bushe is from.Some 100 Irish citizens are now known to be in the area and the Department of Foreign Affairs said contact had been made with many of them.A spokeswoman said communications lines had been affected so the process of contacting citizens would take some time.“The consular response team in Dublin is liaising closely with the team at the Embassy of Ireland in New Delhi which is accredited to Nepal.Embassy officials are continuing to work actively with EU and other international partners in the region, with a view to providing practical assistance for Irish citizens,” she said. Irish aid workers, trekkers and climbers were among those badly affected by the earthquake which has claimed more than 2,500 lives in Nepal.Those concerned about Irish family or friends can contact the Department before 9am on 01 478 0822, or on 01 418 0200 after 9am.

DONEGAL soccer star Seamus Coleman has emerged as a shock €10M target for Liverpool, reports in England said this morning.Kenny Dalglish is lining up an audacious January move for the Killybegs youngster.Coleman was bought for £60,000 from Sligo Rovers in 2008. However, the versatile right-sided player could command more than £8m in the transfer window. He signed a four-and-a-half-year deal with Everton last January, and is understood be on a contract in the region of £25,000 a week.Liverpool have the financial clout to make a move for his services, though, and Coleman fits the bill of young, home-grown talent from this part of the world that Dalglish is looking to recruit.Everton’s Belgian midfielder Fellaiini signed a new deal with the club yesterday, and urged his employers to make sure they keep hold of young talent like Coleman.The Irishman was so impressive last season that he was voted onto the PFA Young Player of the Year shortlist by his peers. Injury halted his start to this campaign, but he has shown glimpses of his previous form, although he is yet to fully break into Giovanni Traattoni.
