Gordon overwhelmed by MVP, Tony Burrowes awards

first_imgFormer Montego Bay striker Owayne Gordon stole the show when he took four individual awards at the Red Stripe Premier League (RSPL) awards ceremony at the Courtleigh Hotel last Thursday night.The 24-year-old, who is currently overseas with his new club, Indy Eleven, led the league in scoring with 20 goals. However, the MoBay United frontman was also the league’s MVP and the recipient of the Tony Burrowes Award for exemplary leadership on the field and in one’s community.The young forward told The Gleaner via telephone in an interview on Friday that the awards brought him to tears, but said. It was a great motivation to work harder and take his career to the next level.”It’s an overwhelming feeling (getting four awards) because this is something that I have been working on as an individual player. So hearing the results of winning all those awards is a great feeling and it motivates me to push myself harder. It shows that there can be more awards like that once I work extremely hard,” he said.Picking up the two most prestigious individual honours, the Tony Burrowes award and the MVP trophy, also came as a big surprise for the man called ‘Turtle’.”Honestly, I didn’t expect them (MVP and Tony Burrowes), but as you can see, everyone is impressed with the work that I’ve put in and I am proud. Hats off to my teammates because without them, I could not have looked the way I did in people’s eyes.”When I heard I was the one receiving those awards, it brought tears to my eyes and it was a joyful moment and a wonderful feeling. In the Premier League, where you have so many great players, and you are able to come out with so many awards, is a great feeling,” he added.Gordon, who played in both legs of the semi-finals against Arnett Gardens but missed the final because of his departure to Indy, was happy MoBay United reclaimed the trophy they won in 2014.”I consulted my club in Indiana and asked if I could play the two semi-finals and come afterwards, and they gave me the go-ahead, so I knew that after the two legs of the semi-final, I would have been out of the country. To regain the championship is a big achievement, and that is what we have been working for, and we told ourselves that it would be our championship again, so to regain the title means a lot.”An ankle injury kept him out of the early part of the season, but Gordon eventually hit his stride in the third round and never looked back.FULL CONFIDENCENow, he is approaching his challenge in the US with full confidence.”I missed out on the start of the Premier League, but after the injury, I had an excellent start as in my first game, I scored, and after that, I kept scoring – me and Dino Williams. Second round, after Dino left and I went back to a normal level as I was not scoring any goals, then I realised that I had to take up the responsibility and lead the team, and from there on, I saw myself as the main man, and over the last few games I just took responsibility and did my job from there. I am pleased and everyone is pleased. It was an outstanding season for me in the Premier League,” he summarised.”(Overseas) I am actually getting into my own right now, getting comfortable because I am getting to know the players more, so it’s just a step up for me now. The first game I played, everyone was pleased with the performance, but I was not pleased because I know I could do more. But everyone is telling me I did a very good job in attacking and defending.”I have no doubt I will excel through the season and go on to greatness because I have that ability. So what you can expect from me in the overseas professional league is greatness as usual, and goals, and hard work.”- L. S.last_img read more

Budget 2016 calls for extended duration of EI benefits

first_imgOTTAWA, O.N. — The budget announced by the federal Liberal government today proposes to make legislative changes to extend the duration of EI regular benefits.The extension would add five weeks, up to a maximum of 50 weeks of benefits, for all eligible claimants in the 12 EI economic regions that have experienced the sharpest and most severe increases in unemployment — including northern B.C.The other EI economic regions are Newfoundland/Labrador, Sudbury, northern Ontario, northern Manitoba, Saskatoon, northern Saskatchewan, Calgary, northern Alberta, southern Alberta, Whitehorse, and Nunavut.- Advertisement -Dramatic declines in global oil prices since late 2014 have produced sharp and sustained unemployment shocks in commodity-based regions.

BEAUTY: KEEP YOUR SKIN SOFT AND SMOOTH IN WINTER

first_imgAs temperatures drop, it’s important to change your skin care routine to help reduce the impact of winter weather on your skin.You can minimise the toll the next few months will take on your skin by preparing now.Here’s an action plan prepared by budget beauty hero Ziaja to keep you comfortable and flare-free. This Polish beauty skincare brand has built a loyal Irish following and is available in pharmacies across the county.1 – EXFOLIATE & CLEANSE DEEPLYExfoliation gets rid of dead skin cells and clears the surface allowing skin to better absorb moisture and nutrients from other skincare products. ZIAJA recommends exfoliating the face twice per week during colder months to increase cell turnover, reduce pores and maintain a glowing complexion. TIP: Don’t forget to exfoliate the neck to get rid of dead, dull cells which can block the effectiveness of moisturisers and anti-ageing creams. It also stimulates cell rejuvenation and restores smoothness to neck skin.Try ZIAJA ROSE BUTTER MICRO PEELING (rrp€4.79) to delicately cleanse and peel off dead skin cells on the face & neck. Regular use stimulates oxygen circulation and reveals a visibly revitalised complexion restoring natural smoothness and softness. Cleanse your face daily to remove impurities, dust, dirt and makeup to ensure skin is healthy and refreshed. ZIAJA recommends incorporating a micellar water into your daily cleansing routine. These are toners that contain microscopic oil spheres that cleanse without stripping so they are suitable for all skin types plus they’re quick, easy and you don’t need to rinse them off – think cleansing wipes without the guilt!Try ZIAJA NATURAL OLIVE MICELLAR WATER (rrp€4.49) a pampering no-need-to rinse micellar water that makes it a pleasure to cleanse. The little molecules in this micellar water eat up and absorb dirt and makeup effortlessly while the natural olive oil ingredient nourishes, softens and hydrates the skin. Its paraben free and dermatologically tested and suits all skin types.Continue to use a body scrub at least once a week during the winter months as exfoliating the top layer of skin helps moisturising products penetrate more deeply to keep skin hydrated for longer. Regular use of a body scrub also enhances blood circulation which oxygenates cells and loosens fluid build-up – this helps to smooth out the skin which lessens the appearance of celluliteTry ZIAJA COCOA BUTTER BODY SCRUB (rrp€7.99): it contains a blend of pure cocoa butter, coconut oil, natural crushed walnut shells and macro scrub granules. This unique combination refines and polishes to reveal brighter and smoother looking skin. The scrub has a chocolate fragrance and leaves skin feeling invigorated.2 – RESTORE & REPLENISH It is vital to replenish moisture levels before the onset of winter and prepare skin to deal with indoor heating and outdoor temperature changes. Fight back against dull, dry skin by moisturising the face day and night to maintain healthy youthful looking skin. Amp up your level of hydration with an intensive hydrating mask at least once a week. TIP: moisturise right after you wash or bathe as applying moisture to damp skin helps seal that moisture back into the skin.Try ZIAJA SENSITIVE SKIN SOOTHING DAY CREAM SPF20 (rrp€6.99): a pure and gentle emulsion cream with long lasting hydration and protective properties for dry and itchy prone skin. Every day use reduces roughness, dryness and excessive flaking. With SPF 20 to protect skin against UVA and winter sun rays and prevent premature skin ageing.Try ZIAJA ROSE BUTTER FIRMING NIGHT CREAM (rrp€6.99): a fast absorbing and intensively moisturising cream that works to refine and firm skin texture while you sleep. The active ingredients combine to boost moisture levels and hyaluronic production – plumping the skin from within helping to visibly reduce lines and wrinkles.Try ZIAJA MARINE ALGAE SPA FACE MASK (rrp€0.69): as a weekly moisturising face mask rich in marine nutrients that provides an at home spa grade hydration treatment with a fresh and soothing marine fragrance. To prevent dry, scaly body skin becoming a real problem in the winter apply an ultra-moisturising body lotion or body butter to your limbs in your daily routine. Arms and legs have fewer oil glands which is why they tend to be drier and scalier than other areas.Try ZIAJA NATURAL AVOCADO OIL BODY LOTION (rrp€5.99): a nourishing and revitalising body lotion that gently delivers hydration while soothing and calming redness and irritations. The natural avocado oil base ingredient is packed with Omega 3 & 9, Vitamins A, B1, B2 and D to replenish the skins protective layer. This body lotion has been clinically proven to increase skin hydration by 42% and it is paraben and colourant free.3 – SHIELD & PROTECTTake special care of the delicate eye area, since the skin here is so thin it needs extra attention during the colder months. Bags, dark circles and puffiness seem to increase during winter – so choose an eye cream that offers extra moisture with natural ingredients as it’s such a sensitive area. TIP: With most eye creams it’s advisable not to use them on the lids as the pores are so tiny that they easily clog, resulting in additional puffiness.Try ZIAJA NATURAL OLIVE OIL EYE CREAM (rrp€6.49): Provides a layer of lightweight moisture to the eye area and protects against environmental damage and reduces puffiness. Helps diminish the signs of fine lines and crow’s feet by visibly smoothing out the skin and improving skin tone.Keep a tube of lip balm in your bag or pocket as cooler temperatures and cold winds can take chapped lips to a whole new level.TIP: If lips are flaky, take a clean toothbrush and very gently exfoliate the skin to remove excess skin. Then apply honey or Vaseline to the lips for 15 minutes and remove with a cotton swab dipped in hot water. To avoid chapped lips apply a balm that contains lanolin (a natural oily wax).Try ZIAJA COCONUT LIP BALMS (rrp€1.99): Contains coconut lipids, canola oil, lanolin, vitamin A and E. Perfectly moisturises, prevents dryness and chapped lips. Gives your lips a delicate gloss and gently lubricates. All ZIAJA lip balms come in hygienic multi-use applicator tubes.To prevent hands from drying out always apply moisturiser after washing hands and several times throughout the day thereafter. Keep a hand cream in your bag.TIP: To rehab really dry hands use a very thick hand cream right before bed and then slip on cotton gloves – over night the moisturiser absorbs into skin and you’ll notice the improvement in the morning.Try ZIAJA GOAT’S MILK HAND CONCENTRATE (rrp€4.49) for on the go intensive hand care this is a special hydrating concentrate with goats milk, shea butter and olive oil to moisturise, nourish and firm skin. It also lightens pigmentation spots and evens out the skin tone.WHERE TO FIND IT IN DONEGAL:  BRENNAN’S PHARMACY, Carndonagh, ESKE PHARMACY, Donegal Town, McFADDENS PHARMACY, Letterkenny,  AND MURRAY’S PHARMACY RameltonBEAUTY: KEEP YOUR SKIN SOFT AND SMOOTH IN WINTER was last modified: October 26th, 2014 by John2Share 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:Beauty productsCarndonaghdonegalDONEGAL AND MURRAY’S PHARMACY RAMELTON.ESKE PHARMACYletterkennyMcFADDENS PHARMACYNATURAL OLIVE MICELLAR WATERWHERE TO FIND IT DONEGAL: BRENNAN’S PHARMACYZIAJAlast_img read more

Boks beat USA, top RWC Pool A

first_img1 October 2007South Africa completed an unbeaten run through Pool A at the Rugby World Cup on Sunday when they outplayed the feisty United States Eagles 64-15, running in nine tries to two.Thanks to Fiji’s shocking 38-34 victory over Wales on Saturday, the Boks will tackle their third Pacific Island opponent of the tournament in the quarterfinals in Marseille on 7 October. Victory at a priceWhile the Springboks scored an expected win, it came at a price as tighthead prop BJ Botha damaged knee ligaments, ruling him out of the rest of the tournament.SA captain John Smit, a teammate of Botha’s with the Sharks, felt the loss of the tighthead would have a disruptive effect on South Africa, coming as it did some way into the tournament. He paid tribute to Botha, saying he not only makes an impact in the tight phases, but also in his work around the field.Cheetahs’ front-rower Jannie du Plessis has been called up to replace Botha and will join his brother, Bismarck, in the Bok squad.The Americans fought hard against South Africa and the Boks led the match only 24-10 at halftime. However, their advantage in possession and territory truly bore fruit in the second half as Smit and co managed a further 40 points whilst conceding only five.The 49-point margin of defeat was the biggest loss yet suffered by the USA at any Rugby World Cup.In controlSouth Africa took control from the kick off and never looked in danger of losing the contest despite a wholehearted effort from the plucky American team that included three South African-born players. It certainly wasn’t a top class performance, but it was very effective and included some superb tries.Interestingly, Argentina also won on Sunday, outplaying Ireland 30-15 to finish top of Pool D. The Pumas produced a very efficient and powerful performance to join New Zealand, Australia, and South Africa as pool winners, thus increasing the likelihood of a first ever all-southern hemisphere semi-final line-up.While South Africa plays the Fijians, Argentina tackles Scotland, New Zealand plays France, and Australia goes up against England. The most likely outcomes of those matches, based on the form shown so far by the eight teams, is victories all round for the southern hemisphere.And after that? Well, then, matters become more interesting.First tryIn Montpellier, it took South Africa nine minutes to get on the board. The Springboks’ first points came from a try by Schalk Burger and the star flanker needed to show good hands to score the five-pointer.After SA had made decent ground and swept into the Americans’ 22-metre area, the ball was moved to the right. A poor pass went to ground before it reached its intended recipient but Burger, flying through at speed, scooped it up beautifully before crashing through two attempted tackles to score.The reliable Percy Montgomery added the extras to put South Africa into a 7-0 lead.SA continued to exert pressure on the USA, especially in the lineouts where the USA was having massive problems, with the Boks either robbing the opposition or disrupting their throw-ins.Double figure leadAfter 17 minutes, the pressure told once more as Montgomery landed a penalty to put South Africa’s lead into double figures at 10-0.Three minutes later, however, US captain Mike Hercus closed the gap to seven points by landing a penalty.After 23 minutes the Americans were reduced to 14 men when flank Todd Clever was sent off for a third professional foul as he fought to stem the attacking Bok tide.While he was off, the Eagles were made to pay for his indiscretion as SA scored through Francois Steyn. Wikus van Heerden won a turnover inside the American 22-metre area and the ball was quickly passed to the backline. Steyn, receiving the ball, jinked inside twice before straightening up and zipping through to dot down next to the uprights.Montgomery added the conversion to put South Africa 17-3 ahead.Habana scoresWith five minutes left in the half, Bryan Habana scored wide on the left after the Springboks moved the ball smartly down the backline from a lineout.The conversion attempt went wide.Then, with South Africa pushing for a bonus point try just before the break, and with men lined up to take the pass, Clever, back on the field after his time in the sin bin, intercepted and raced up the field.The ball was moved to the inside before a long pass out to the right found Zimbabwean-born winger Takudzwa Ngwenya. He had space to move in, both to the right and the left. Habana showed him the outside gap and Ngwenya, after slowing the Bok winger up with some nifty footwork, accelerated to the outside to round Habana and score under the posts.Hercus knocked over the conversion to give the Americans a timely boost just before halftime.Second halfShortly after the restart, Habana became South Africa’s second leading try scorer of all time behind Joost van der Westhuizen when he rounded off another flowing backline move in the left-hand corner.Again, Montgomery missed with his conversion attempt from the left touchline, leaving the Springboks 29-10 ahead.Francois Steyn then had a long-range shot at goal from just inside his own half. His effort had more than enough distance on it, but was slightly wide.Ten minutes into the second stanza, Juan Smith made some hard yards before popping the ball into the hands of the charging CJ van der Linde. Showing a nice turn of speed, the huge prop carried two men over with him as he crashed over the tryline.This time Montgomery’s conversion was accurate, opening up the gap between the two teams to 26 points at 36-10.Try concededShortly afterwards, after the Americans had found touch deep in the South African 22-metre area, scrumhalf Fourie du Preez took a quick throw-in to Francois Steyn. The centre tried to lift his arms above an attempted tackle, but caught his elbow on the tackler’s head and coughed the ball up.The Eagles first went right, then moved the ball down the backline, to the left, where Chris Wyles powered through two tackles to score.Hercus was wide right with his conversion attempt. South Africa led 36-15.Du Preez was next on the scoreboard for South Africa, selling a dummy and then accelerating through a huge hole that opened up for him to score right next to the posts.The conversion presented no problems for Montgomery and South Africa moved up to 43 points, the same number they scored against the Americans in the last meeting between the two teams in 2001.Slick backline moveJust past the hour mark, a slick backline move that involved Butch James and JP Pietersen (on for Habana who had gone off with a cut to his face) opened up space on the right. The Americans raced across to cover the pass out wide, but Jaque Fourie summed the situation up perfectly and sold a dummy before cruising through for a try.Montgomery added another conversion to take South Africa past the 50-point mark.Fourie then equalled Habana’s brace of tries when he broke through for the Springboks’ eighth try after 73 minutes.With Montgomery having been substituted as the entire South African bench was given a run, James took over the kicking duties and kicked the conversion to put SA 57-15 ahead.Top of the listFinally, with three minutes remaining, a nice interchange of passing between Pietersen and Ruan Pienaar set Smith up for a well deserved try. The flanker dotted down for the third time in the tournament, lifting him into a tie at the top of the list for try scorers amongst forwards.James’ conversion sealed a 64-15 win that the Boks had to work hard for despite the 49-point gap between the two sides.Springbok coach Jake White declared himself “very pleased” with the win, saying the players achieved what they had set out to do, maintaining a sound structure and decent continuity in their game.He added that Boks will go into their quarterfinal clash against Fiji with confidence after winning all four of their pool matches.

The product appears grubby as it is not even put in tissue paper or bag. Doubt it will ever appear like the picture and pretty let down with it. Attractive cost but i am sure purchasers would be delighted to pay a tiny more if packaged properly so products is delivered as advertised.Key specs for Allsorts® Silver Grey Satin Clip Hat Fascinator Wedding Ladies Day Race Royal Ascot:Silver Grey Satin Cap FascinatorComes on a strong fork clip attachmentIdeal for all occasions including weddings, the races and royal ascotWe have a choice of colours in storeFast free delivery on all items in Allsorts Accessories storeComments from buyers“Lovely finishing touch for my wedding outfit, Stunning picture but in reality nothing like it!, Squashed fascinator.”Lovely ending touch for my wedding outfit.
