At just 22 years old, the 2012 IAAF World Junior Champion and 2015 IAAF Bronze Medalist will be the first Turks and Caicos Islander to accomplish the feat. Sadly, he cannot do it under the TCI Flag as the country is a UK Overseas Territory, but he still makes sure it is known that he is all TCI.Delano in the debut of his story, which is posted online talked about shedding his TCI uniform to the British one. “I will always have that team TCI on my chest, the British press was really hard on me, but after a period of time though, when I start winning medals for them, they start to love me.” Today Flow, the official broadcast partner of the 2016 Rio Summer games gave media – via text messaging – the opportunity to speak to the their Brand Ambassador, the nation’s Golden Boy with just 48 days left to the games.
Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#Canada, October 11, 2017 – Toronto – The reports of senseless killings around the globe, where strangers are taking the lives of other unsuspecting strangers in unprovoked attacks are shocking and tragic. While, as islanders we empathize with the loved ones of victims, it rarely hits home directly. Not so, with a nightclub shooting in Toronto, Canada recently… a youngster, from Providenciales was one of two men gunned down on October 2 outside the Rebel Night Club.Twenty-five year old #TylerMcLean, the son of Hugh McLean, notable and long time attorney in the Turks and Caicos was shot to death after an altercation, and now two men are charged with the murder. Tyler’s mother, Paris Vassel was also a TCI resident and had relocated to Toronto with Tyler (and his sisters) when he was in his teens.Doug Comozzi, prominent business owner and Provo resident brought the disastrous news to our attention, explaining that Tyler attended the British West Indies Collegiate school and played in the Provo Hockey League. It is where Comozzi coached Tyler who was a stand-out leader and captain of the TDMG Bandits in the popular league.“Tyler had a heart of gold. Was a true leader of his fellow athletes and had an infectious smile that lit up the room. He leaves behind a real good in many people’s lives and he will live on forever in all of our hearts.”Tyler and Amir Jamal, were killed reportedly after parting a fight which involved the two gunmen. Toronto News reports say one of the two died at the scene, the other later at hospital.A search by Toronto Police of the suspects’ residence turned up the evidence needed to charge the shooters with second degree murder.Comozzi, who has since attended a memorial held for Tyler in Toronto where some 400 people attended, told MagneticMedia that an award and scholarship have been created to honour Tyler’s memory.The Tyler McLean Sportsmanship Award and Education Fund will be bestowed upon any Provo Hockey League player showing outstanding leadership and sportsmanship; this way say his coaches, Tyler will never be forgotten.#MagneticMediaNews#RebelNightClub#Torontoshooting Related Items:#AmirJamal, #magneticmedianews, #TylerMcClean
Arsenal midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan said the team’s desire and commitment saw them through to the final whistle at Old Trafford, earning a point from a keenly contested encounter against Manchester United.The former Manchester United midfielder who joined Arsenal in 2016 was disappointed that the Gunners were unable to return from the north west with all three points after twice taking the lead, but said the team refused to buckle at the end, despite the physical exertions of Sunday’s north London derby victory.“There is a lot of frustration because we should have won today,” he told Arsenal Media after the game.Maguire says United need to build on today’s win George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Harry Maguire wants his United teammates to build on the victory over Leicester City.During the summer, Harry Maguire was referred to as the ultimate…“I think we deserved to win but we drew. We were trying to score the third goal but unfortunately, we couldn’t.”“Even if you have tired legs, the most important thing is to be fresh in the brain, in the mind. If you force yourself, if you push yourself to get to the end, then you will do that.”“You don’t have to listen to your legs, even if they are heavy or it’s hard to play. You have to do the maximum.”
Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has urged Paul Pogba to show “everybody how good he is” as they prepare to face Valencia in the Champions League on Wednesday.Pogba will return to the United starting line-up when they visit Valencia on Wednesday after he was left on the bench for their 4-1 win on Saturday and Mourinho believes the Frenchman has what it takes to silence his critics.“He has to play with the same mentality as the team is playing,” Mourinho told Sky Sports.“Paul can be a fantastic player, he has the potential to be a fantastic player.“Against Valencia, he is going to start and have a fantastic football game to play and to show everybody how good he is.”Maguire says United need to build on today’s win George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Harry Maguire wants his United teammates to build on the victory over Leicester City.During the summer, Harry Maguire was referred to as the ultimate…Mourinho also praised the performance of central midfield duo Ander Herrera and Nemanja Matic after their 4-1 thrashing of Fulham at Old Trafford.“You have teams that are positionally good, ready to press, and with a desire to press, and I think these two boys – Matic and Herrera – have a really strong mentality,” Mourinho said.“The way they play football is to play at the top of their level and then the people in front of them were also good.”

While the patient flatlines, surgeons clear the tissue with specialized tools in 20-minute increments, so as not to permanently damage the patient’s brain and heart functions.“To do 4,000 of these surgeries, the most in the world with the best outcomes, requires a true team effort,” said Dr. Michael Madani, UCSD Health’s chief of cardiovascular and thoracic surgery. “I just could not be prouder of the multi-disciplinary team I work with.”The surgery is the most effective treatment for chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension, according to UCSD. Sheila Holt, the 4,000th patient to undergo the surgery, had a particularly difficult case of CTEPH, Madani said. Had it been five or 10 years prior, the surgery may not have been an option due to the tissue’s location in her lungs.“Sheila had significant pulmonary hypertension with clots that were far out in the smaller vessels,” Madani said. “She’ll be in my memory forever now not only for being number 4,000, but a more challenging case, as well.”UCSD’s PTE surgical department is the first in the country to receive Center of Excellence designation by the American College of Chest Physicians.According to the university, the program has had the lowest postoperative mortality rate in the world for the past decade at 1 to 2 percent.“It’s surreal to be part of something that makes such a big difference in people’s lives,” Holt said. “I’m so happy I took this leap of faith. It’s life-changing.” Categories: Health, Local San Diego News FacebookTwitter

U.S. Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler, R-Camas, was one of seven Republicans who rebelled against a GOP effort Tuesday to defeat a Senate-approved bill to extend the payroll tax cut.Herrera Beutler voted against a motion to reject the two-month payroll tax cut extension, said her spokesman, Casey Bowman.Last week, Herrera Beutler voted for a bill that would have extended the tax cut for a year, but that measure failed in the Senate.“I support continuing the payroll tax cut, extending unemployment insurance and making sure Medicare patients have access to the medical care they need,” she said in a statement. “I had hoped the Senate would have agreed that a year extension is better than two months. But I know that families in Southwest Washington are struggling to make ends meet, and I wanted to eliminate any of their fear that this relief wouldn’t be in place January 1.”
There will be Kids Dig activities on each of the next two Saturdays; see http://nps.gov/fova or call 360-816-6230 for details.Landry Smith is interested in dirt, the Army and anything that can blow anything up, said his mom, Betsy Smith. On Saturday, the 9-year-old Vancouver boy got to spend a good deal of time in the dirt and even helped uncover part of an old grenade shell and other artifacts at the Fort Vancouver National Site.Smith was one of eight or so kids who showed up at the fort for a mock archaeology dig on Saturday morning.The program teaches kids what archaeology is — the study of things made, modified and left behind by humans — and why it is important, said Mike Twist, park guide at Fort Vancouver.Kids took turns digging, sifting through soil, bagging artifacts and documenting what was found. Each dig site was prepared by Rangers with real artifacts placed in layers representing different time periods at the fort site. The deeper the layer, the farther back in time.“Think of layers in time as being the layers in a cake,” Twist told the kids. The ground they were standing on would be the frosting, he said.
Editor’s Note: Last week The Columbian published a shortened version of this series on our website. This week we will be releasing the full versions of the stories along with detailed poll results.On Tuesday, April 16, The Columbian hosted a live chat for readers to discuss this series, “The Big Divide,” with reporters Aaron Corvin and Eric Florip. If you missed it, you can read it by replaying it onlineWatch our video series exploring this story with interviews of key stakeholders discussing the Columbia River Crossing and its impact on civic and political life in Clark County.It’s a Thursday afternoon, and the gathering clouds look fraught with rain. But things are looking bright — and busy — at the Port of Vancouver.Earth movers trundle over mounds of dirt where roads and utilities will open the way for new businesses. By the end of August, the port’s $5.3 million investment on this long-dormant 108 acres will have bought infrastructure for about half of the new Centennial Industrial Park. The goal: Attract businesses that will provide 500 family-wage jobs.
There are three active proposals for Northwest coal-export terminals: the plan by Millennium Bulk Terminals-Longview — owned by Ambre Energy and Arch Coal Inc. — which would export up to 44 million metric tons of coal annually to Asia; Pacific International Terminals, a subsidiary of SSA Marine Inc., wants to handle 54 million import/export tons of bulk commodities annually, largely coal exports, near Bellingham; and the “Morrow Pacific” plan, proposed by Ambre Energy. Up to 8 million tons of coal would be hauled annually on covered barges from the Port of Morrow near Boardman, Ore., 190 miles down the Columbia River to the Port of St. Helens, Ore., where it would be loaded onto vessels to Asia.Back in 2011, when SSA Marine laid out plans for a major coal-export terminal in Northwest Washington, international markets were on a tear as the demand for coal pushed prices to record levels.But this summer, export prices have plunged by more than 40 percent, prompting some coal-export projects in Australia to be scaled back or scuttled.That’s raising new questions about the prospect for large-scale exports from the proposed SSA Marine terminal at Cherry Point in Whatcom County and a second terminal proposed for Longview in Southwest Washington.Environmentalists, trying to block efforts to turn the region into a center for coal exports, are mounting a major campaign against the projects.The big drop in export prices reflects an oversupply of coal and diminished demand as China has reduced imports amid an economic slowdown. Some financial analysts suggest coal-export markets face a prolonged downturn that reflects fundamental changes in the markets.Goldman Sachs, in a research report released earlier this summer, declared that “the window for profitable investment in coal mining (for export) is closing.”
NEW YORK — Some carried photos of loved ones cut down by a bullet. Others held signs imploring Congress to act. And nearly all shouted out “Not one more,” a tear-stained rallying cry embraced by those who believe the U.S. needs tougher gun control laws.More than 1,000 demonstrators — including nearly 100 from Newtown, Connecticut, the site of the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting rampage — marched across the Brooklyn Bridge on Saturday, demanding that action be taken to stem the recent wave of mass shootings across the U.S.“I want to see our laws protect our children, not our gun lobbyists,” said Andrew Morosky, 48, who lives in Newtown and whose children were friends with some of the 20 students who were killed along with six educators. “After what happened, I felt like I had to do something. I sat on the sidelines for too long.”The event was organized by several groups — including Moms Demand Action, Everytown For Gun Safety and Mayors Against Illegal Guns — which are all funded by former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg. The billionaire Bloomberg, who was not in attendance, has become one of the nation’s most visible gun control advocates and has pumped millions of his own money into the cause.The rally began in downtown Brooklyn, where many chanted “Not one more,” the cry uttered by Richard Martinez, whose son Christopher was shot to death in Santa Barbara, California, last month.
WASHINGTON — Facing the future leaders of a Republican-controlled Congress, President Barack Obama pledged Friday to judge ideas in his final two years not by whether they come from Democrats or Republicans but by “whether or not they work.”Obama invited 16 top lawmakers from both parties to a White House luncheon to search for areas where they might manage to work together in the new year. Coming three days after Obama’s party was pummeled in the midterm elections, the meeting offered the first clues as to whether Obama and congressional Republicans would be able to put aside years of deep-seated differences.Obama, seated between House Speaker John Boehner and incoming Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, said he congratulated both Republicans “for running very strong campaigns.” He said the election results showed Americans are frustrated with gridlock and want Washington to start getting things done.“They’d like to see more cooperation,” Obama said. “And I think all of us have the responsibility — me in particular — to try to get that done.”Obama sounded an upbeat if conciliatory tone as he and the leaders began their meeting in the Old Family Dining Room. He cited the lunch as a good opportunity to explore ways for political leaders to make progress on behalf of American voters.
Directors and senior staff at Derby-based recruitment organisation Workchain have received suspended prison sentences, and have been ordered to pay more than £280,000 in fines for plotting to illegally opt workers out of their pension scheme.Owners and directors Phil Tong and Adam Hinkley encouraged five senior Workchain staff members to remove employees from the scheme so the company could avoid making pension payments on their behalf.Financial controller Hannah Armson, HR and compliance officer Lisa Neal and branch managers Martin West, Robert Tomlinson and Andrew Thorpe then worked together to opt workers out of the Nest pension scheme.Neal, West, Tomlinson and Thorpe phoned Nest, posing as temporary employees, to get their account ID numbers. They then logged onto Nest’s online system and opted the temporary workers out of their pension scheme.The Pensions Regulator (TPR) examined recordings of the conversations after Nest became suspicious about a number of the calls.A joint investigation, involving TPR, the Employment Agency Standards Inspectorate, and the Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire Constabularies was launched in May 2014.TPR prosecuted the Workchain staff members for an offence of unauthorised access to computer data, contrary to section 1(1) of the Computer Misuse Act 1990. This is the first time that TPR has launched prosecutions for this offence.The employer, the directors and five senior Workchain staff all pleaded guilty to computer misuse offences when they appeared at Derby Magistrates’ Court on 7 June 2018. However, District Judge Jonathan Taaffe decided that the maximum punishment he could hand down was insufficient for the case, so sent it to Derby Crown Court for sentencing.Judge Nirmal Shant QC told the defendants their co-ordinated effort had been an attempt to gain an advantage on their competitors.She said: “This amounted to a deliberate subversion of the auto-enrolment process. It was a deliberate attack on the integrity of the electronic systems of Nest.”Shant ordered Workchain, formerly known as Smart Recruitment, to pay a £200,000 fine and £60,930 costs. Tong and Hinley were each given a four-month prison sentence, suspended for two years, and were ordered to complete 200 hours of community service and pay £11,250 costs.Armson was given a two-month prison sentence, suspended for two years, a five-month overnight curfew and was ordered to pay costs of £1,500. Neal was given a two-month prison sentence, suspended for two years, and was ordered to complete 200 hours of community service and to pay £1,500 costs.West, Tomlinson and Thorpe were each given a two-year community order, 150 hours of community service and were ordered to pay £500 costs.Darren Ryder, director of auto-enrolment at TPR, said: “The scale of the punishments handed down today shows the court agreed with us that these were very serious offences. Auto-enrolment has led to almost 10 million people saving towards their retirement. Its success cannot be allowed to be undermined by such incredibly rare cases of unacceptable behaviour as that of Workchain.“Nest’s vigilance, our thorough investigation and the sentences from the court have led to a clear message. Employers cannot opt a worker out of a pension scheme, even if the worker agrees. Those who try to avoid their pension responsibilities in this way face receiving heavy fines and criminal records.”Guy Opperman, Minister for Pensions and Financial Inclusion, said: “Automatic enrolment has transformed pension saving in this country, with almost 10 million people benefiting so far. The offenders sentenced today shamefully tried to cheat the system designed to help give workers a secure retirement and I welcome the regulator’s action in bringing them to justice.“This tough sentence should serve as a warning to any rogue employers who try to flout the rules that they can’t get away with it and will feel the full force of the law.”

Officers and K-9 units responded to the scene out of an abundance of caution. MBPD K-9 units now on scene as well. Media Staging: 1000blk Ocean Drive, not Ocean Rescue driveway.— Miami Beach Police (@MiamiBeachPD) December 8, 2016A call threatening that an explosive device was on the street came into police some time, Wednesday night.Miami Beach Police Officer Ernesto Rodriguez said police would be checking vehicles in the area first.“Just about an hour ago, we received a few calls, not to our 911 center, which is important to note, but to our non-emergency line,” Rodriguez said. “The caller alluded to the fact of possible explosives along the area on Ocean Drive, between Ninth Street and 10th Street, so out of an abundance of caution, we’re beginning to clear out that area, and we have our K-9 dogs who are going to be saturating that area to, number one, make sure everyone is safe, and two, get some kind of validity to those claims.”
MIAMI (WSVN) – One person was killed and six others were taken to the hospital after, officials said, two cars collided in a residential neighborhood of Miami, Sunday afternoon.City of Miami Police and Fire Rescue crews responded to the scene of the crash near Southwest 17th Street and 25th Avenue, just before 2 p.m.Officials said the driver of one vehicle was pronounced dead at the scene. Paramedics treated and transported two women and four men to Ryder Trauma Center with serious injuries.Officials said, considering the number of people involved and the location, the accident could have had an even more tragic outcome. “Right now, Miami Police is trying to put together how this crash took place, the direction of travel from both vehicles, but as you can see, from the amount of people that are out here in this neighborhood, that this could have been a lot worse,” said Miami Fire Rescue Capt. Ignatius Carroll.Authorities said all victims were between the ages of 25 and 35. The cause of the crash remains under investigation.Copyright 2019 Sunbeam Television Corp. All rights reserved.
