OAKLAND — Matt Olson’s batting stance is menacing. His 6-foot-5 frame towers over the 17-inch rubber pentagon at his white-cleated feet. His lumber isn’t perched readily at his shoulder, but expectantly and loosely just inches from the strike zone.Olson’s game matches his batter’s box presence at this point. It’s safe to expect that Olson’s at bats will spawn something spectacular. With a little more than a week remaining in the regular season — a wild card game looking promising — Olson’s bat …

In 1880, a young Roman Catholic woman, Jessie Ripoll, bought a 43-acre property and transformed it into the Alpha Cottage, where she admitted a single orphan girl. For 125 years, the Alpha Primary School located on South Camp Road, Kingston, has been shaping the lives of Jamaicans and garnering a reputation of excellence.Branded as one of the island’s premier primary institutions, Alpha has recorded outstanding results in all national standardised examinations, namely the Grade Four Literacy and Numeracy Tests, and the Grade Six Achievement Test (GSAT).This institution, which has 1,000 students on roll, has produced some of Jamaica’s outstanding leaders, including former Prime Minister, Bruce Golding; Gospel artiste, Jenieve Hibbert-Bailey, and broadcasters, Henry Stennett, Michael Sharpe and Nadine McLeod.In an interview with JIS News, Principal, Millicent Graham, says the school has strong and successful education and performing arts programmes, which are critical to the overall development of Jamaica’s future leaders.“For the national exams… we are performing above the national average… we have tried to create well-rounded students and they have really done us proud,” she tells JIS News.“We have several medals, as it relates to dance, music and speech. This year, for instance, of four entries in dance in the festival of the performing arts, we got four gold medals and two national trophies. For music, we did exceptionally well. We got six gold and seven silver, four bronze, and we got three national trophies,” she boasts.Ms. Graham says the institution, with its committed and hard-working staff of 32, will continue to challenge the minds of students.She informs that an accelerated programme will be introduced for those who are gifted, in a bid to expose them to higher levels of critical thinking, while continuing to challenge them. The students will be participating in more debates, research and quizzes.“The students who are at the lower (and second) tiers, they get a lot of attention, and those… who are performing above average, we don’t think we challenge them enough, and so we now have a special programme for them,” she tells JIS News.She says that the school also offers a wide range of extracurricular activities, such as the Spanish, mathematics, 4-H Clubs, and Brownies. These, she says, allow students to develop leadership skills.Ms. Graham says that while the school does not have a tradition of achievement in sports, there are plans to introduce more students to activities such as netball and cricket.As the institution marks its 125th anniversary this year, Ms. Graham says homage will be paid to the pioneers, and the institution’s contributions to the community and country will be recognised and celebrated.Ms. Graham tells JIS News that a wall of fame has been mounted to highlight past students who have done exceptionally well over the years.She adds that a church service, which had to be rescheduled due to inclement weather, will now be held on June 2. The year-long celebration also includes a banquet later this year, to recognise the school’s achievements.Activities already held include an Open Day/Math Exposition at the school’s campus and an Evening of Excellence at the Little Theatre.Ms. Graham says the events were successful, and commended the past students for their continued support of the institution.In 1880, a young Roman Catholic woman, Jessie Ripoll, bought a 43-acre property and transformed it into the Alpha Cottage, where she admitted a single orphan girl.Over the years, as the institution’s population grew, so too did its purpose and importance to the Kingston community, and in 1892, it was transformed into an elementary school with the assistance of the Sisters of Mercy from England.The school went through a number of name changes, including Top School, Alpha Elementary, and Alpha Junior School. “For the national exams… we are performing above the national average… we have tried to create well-rounded students and they have really done us proud,” she tells JIS News. For 125 years, the Alpha Primary School located on South Camp Road, Kingston, has been shaping the lives of Jamaicans and garnering a reputation of excellence. Story Highlights
Raheem Sterling has been heavily criticized by England fans after getting a tattoo of the gun on his leg but Kevin De Bruyne doesn’t understand why the fans are so rough on the player.The Belgium international is Sterling’s teammate at Manchester City and after hearing the wave of criticism towards him, he was really surprised by that – and he insisted that Sterling is a good guy and great player.De Bruyne spoke about Sterling’s character and qualities as he said, according to Sky Sports:Crouch: Liverpool could beat Man United to Jadon Sancho Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Peter Crouch wouldn’t be surprised to see Jadon Sancho end up at Liverpool one day instead of his long-term pursuers Manchester United.“Raheem is an unbelievable player. When he plays for England I don’t know what happens but there is always criticism about Raheem and I don’t know why.”“He’s a very good guy, he’s one of my guys and we’ve been together since day one. We have a good chemistry, we play well together and he’s only 23.”“I don’t know many guys that can show that capability of playing at that age in the Premier League.”
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has defended his U-turn over Loris Karius’ future by saying that “things in football change”The German goalkeeper has been the focal point of criticism directed at the Liverpool following his two costly errors in May’s Champions League final loss to Real Madrid.Klopp had initially defended Karius and backed his compatriot to recover.But, after some more errors by Karius in pre-season, Klopp went ahead and signed AS Roma goalkeeper Alisson Becker for £67m.Now Karius is set to leave for Besiktas with the Turkish side having accidentally confirmed the move on Friday evening.“There’s nothing new about Loris’ actual situation,” said Klopp, according to Goal.“Nothing’s decided. If it happens, that’s how things go in football. That can happen.“As a manager you usually don’t need that much time between one game and the other game to get the sack. But it’s not the sack, it’s only a change if it’s like that.Virgil van Dijk praises Roberto Firmino after Liverpool’s win Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Virgil van Dijk hailed team-mate Roberto Firmino after coming off the bench to inspire Liverpool to a 3-1 comeback win against Newcastle United.“That’s football. No problem with that. Whatever. Things in football change. If they change, then we speak about that. Before that, I have nothing to say about that.”Liverpool will face Brighton and Hove Albion at Anfield today.But Croatian defender Dejan Lovren will likely remain absent from the squad until after the international break while he recovers from a pelvis issue.“He’s coming closer but he’s not really around team training at the moment,” Klopp said.“I am not 100 per cent what he is doing today. He will not be involved in that [Brighton] game, and I am pretty sure he has no chance for the Leicester [City] game.“Then hopefully after the international break he will be ready to go, that would be nice.“That was the target from the first day when he was in and we knew about his problems. We always thought if we could give him that time, then that would be cool.”Liverpool have won both of their opening games of the new Premier League season.
