first_imgThe annual observance of the International Day of Persons with Disabilities (IDPD) aims to promote an understanding of disability issues and mobilise support for the dignity, rights and well-being of persons with disabilities. It also seeks to increase awareness of gains to be derived from the integration of persons with disabilities into every aspect of political, social, economic and cultural life.IDPD has been celebrated every year on December 3 since 1992, and the theme for the 2018 celebration is “Empowering persons with disabilities and ensuring inclusiveness and equality”.In observance of this day, the New Amsterdam Special Needs School (NASNS), on the afternoon of December 3, held an awareness walk through the streets of New Amsterdam, which was followed by a concert.NASNS Head Teacher Zoya Crandon told the Department of Public Information (DPI) that the road march and concert were two activities held every year by the school in observance of IDPD. Crandon said that this year the members of staffHead Teacher Zoya Crandondecided to “give back to the community”, which assisted the institution in a number of ways during the year.When asked how she felt about the success of the programme, the Head Teacher responded, “We started planning from last year. So, we feel really good because a lot of work was put into it.”Regional Education Officer of Region Six (East Berbice-Corentyne), Valika Mohabir-Jaikishun in her address, emphasised the need for inclusivity for persons living with disabilities. “We don’t want persons, because you have some form of disability to be left behind. We at the Ministry of Education want equality so that all our children can benefit … we want them to have an education because that is the key to success.”The walk, which commenced at Main and Vryheid Streets, New Amsterdam, saw participation from students and teachers of the NASNS, along with parents as well as officials of the Education Ministry. The participants later assembled at the New Amsterdam Town Hall for the concert and award ceremony which followed. Additionally, students, parents, and sponsors received awards in appreciation of their support throughout the year.This year, the local theme focused on empowering persons with disabilities for inclusive, equitable and sustainable development as part of the Agenda for Sustainable Development. The Agenda pledges to “leave no one behind”.According to the United Nations, “Persons with disabilities, as both beneficiaries and agents of change, can fast-track the process towards inclusive and sustainable development and promote resilient society for all, including in the context of disaster risk reduction and humanitarian action, and urban development. Governments, persons with disabilities and their representative organisations, academic institutions and the Private Sector need to work as a “team” to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)”.last_img read more

first_img“He’s playing comfortably in this (Pacers) system,” said Clippers coach Mike Dunleavy Sr., who has won nine of 14matchup against his son’s teams. “It used to be the worst thing there was, playing against your son, because it’s the first time in your life you don’t want him to win,” the elder Dunleavy said. “Now that part has gotten a little bit easier, and it’s just a game.” The younger Dunleavy, Troy Murphy and Ike Diogu came to Indiana as part of an eight-player trade between the Pacers and Warriors last month. “I have mixed emotions,” Dunleavy said of playing against his father’s team. “I wanted to beat him real bad, but I also want to see them do well. I hope they win the rest of their games, but the most important thing is our team.” The Clippers, losing for the 22nd time in their past 26 games against the Pacers, were led by Cuttino Mobley with 23 points and Elton Brand and Sam Cassell with 14 each. INDIANAPOLIS – Take that, Pops. Mike Dunleavy, playing against his father’s Clippers for the first time since he was traded from Golden State to Indiana last month, made 9 of 12shots, scored 20 points and had three steals in the Pacers’ 94-80 victory on Sunday. center_img “We missed easy shots, easy 3s,” Mobley said. “We didn’t play any defense. “When the offense is stagnant like it was, we allowed them to tip balls, get easy lay-ins and let them run their offense and get easy fast breaks.” The Clippers did not score over the final 4:14 of the secondquarter, when the Pacers took control with a 16-0 run. Indiana built its lead to as many as 23points early in the thirdquarter. Cassell scored 11 points in the third quarter as the Clippers cut the lead to seven, but a basket by Dunleavy started another 8-0 run that pushed the Pacers’ lead to 77-62 starting the finalperiod. The Clippers rallied within seven points midway through the final quarter, but Jermaine O’Neal then hit two straight baskets and Dunleavy added another to push Indiana’s lead to 89-76. The Clippers came no closer than 11 points the rest of the way. “I asked him, `Do you always shoot this well against your dad?”‘ Pacers coach Rick Carlisle said of the younger Dunleavy’s shooting. “He said it’s usually feast or famine. “The way he played today, not only was a real key for us to win but demonstrated the kind of tone he can bring to our team. “We’re finding out he’s a much better defensive player than people ever gave him credit for. He’s working hard on his whole game, particularly his shooting. And you can see the progress he’s made.” Dunleavy made both of his 3-point attempts, and his 20points marked the first time this season he has scored at least that many in consecutive games. O’Neal had 21 points and had four blocked shots, giving him 1,113 for his career with the Pacers and breaking the franchise record of 1,111 by Rik Smits. Marquis Daniels added 14points, and Jamaal Tinsley had 10 points and a season-high 15 assists for Indiana. O’Neal, who left the game with two early fouls in the firstquarter, returned in the second period and scored sevenpoints during Indiana’s big run. The Clippers had fourturnovers during that stretch, including threestraight possessions that led to layups by Dunleavy and Jamaal Tinsley and three free throws by O’Neal. Tinsley scored again after an offensive foul by Brand, and a 3-pointer by Dunleavy with twoseconds remaining gave the Pacers their 20-point lead at the break. The 32 points in the firsttwoquarters for the Clippers were a season low, twofewer than they scored in the second half of a 94-77 loss Wednesday at Cleveland. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

first_img Tags: French Ligue 1 PSG’s Neymar is in scintilating form going into the weekendParis Saint Germain’s one hundred percent win record after eight rounds of French Ligue One action faces it’s sternest test yet when free-scoring Olympique Lyon visit Stade de France on Sunday night.Thomas Tuchel’s expensively assembled Parisians are averaging over three goals per game and on Wednesday underlined their title credentials by firing six past Red Star Belgrade in a Champions League rubber.Tuchel has an embarrassment of attacking options to choose from. The rapid development of fresh-faced trio of Thomas Weah, Christopher Nkunku and Mousa Diaby means his much feared front three are to come into this tie well rested.The world’s most expensive player, Neymar Junior, has bounced back from a poor World Cup showing to top the Ligue One scoring charts. The Brazilian’s vintage form was on display against 1991 European champions Red Star Belgrade against whom he netted a fabulous hat-trick.Uruguayan Edinson Cavani and teen sensation Kylian Mbappe Lottin, the other two-thirds of the dreaded attacking triumvirate have also been in top form. Both sit among Ligue One’s leading scorers.Even more intense focus will be on Leonardo Jardim’s 2017 champions Monaco, who go into their game with Rennes without a victory to write home about in seven outings.  Tuesday’s 3-0 Champions League reverse at Borussia Dortmund has Monaco fans wondering if the Portuguese gaffer hasn’t reached the end of his tether.Lyon are blowing hot and cold, interspersing memorable results like the 2-1 Champions League victory over Manchester City in the Champions League with setbacks like a home loss to Nice and draw with Nantes. But their own front men – Nabil Fekir, Bertrand Traore, Memphis Deepay and Patrick Dembele can destroy any defense on their day.Christophe Gautier’s high flying Lille are hoping the terrific form of Nicolas Pepe, Jonathan Ikone and Stephen Bamba can propel them past 1970s powerhouses Saint Etienne.Friday:-Toulouse v NiceSaturday:-Lille v Saint Etienne-Amiens v Dijon-Guingamp v Montpelier-Angers v Strasbourg-Nimes v ReimsSunday:-Bordeaux vs Nantes-Marseille v Caen-Monaco v Rennnes-Paris Saint Germain v Olympique LyonComments last_img read more
