IMPRESSIVE DEBUT— Steeler quarterback Dennis Dixon outruns Baltimore Ravens defensive tackle Trevor Pryce (90) for a touchdown during the second half, Nov. 29, in Baltimore. Starting quarterback Ben Roethlisberger suffered a concussion in the last game, however, he practiced all week thinking he was going to play. Second string quarterback Charlie Batch broke his hand in the last game and will miss the next three to four games. This moved Dennis Dixon up to second string. Well, after practice on Friday, Roethlisberger started having headaches so the doctors did not clear him for the game. That led to Dennis Dixon starting.Dixon had only thrown one pass in two years in an actual regular season game. However, anyone who had seen him in pre-season knew he could play the game. The Steelers played a very conservative first half with Rashard Mendenhall carrying the ball the bulk of the time as Dixon picked his times to throw, going 8 of 10 for 84 yards.In the second half with the Ravens leading most of the way and rushing everybody he was only 4 of 16 for 61 yards. However, the running game wasn’t as effective either, or the defense.Most expected the defense to step up and either win the game by scoring touchdowns, or at least keep the Ravens bottled up, but Ray Rice had an outstanding all around game as he picked up 88 yards on 19 carries on the ground, the best against Pittsburgh this season, and 67 yards on five receptions. The defense kept quarterback Joe Flacco in check most of the night but was not able to contain Rice. He was the difference in overtime as he marched down field to put the Ravens in field goal range after a Dixon interception in overtime.On the whole, Dixon had a solid game and proved that he belongs in the NFL and could probably be starting for another team soon. The injury-prone Batch is done. The Steelers will probably keep him for the remainder of this season but look for Dixon to move into that second slot.For some strange reason the Steelers offensive coordinator did not take advantage of Dixon’s running ability other than the touchdown run, which was not a called play. If he had the Steelers could have easily won the game.What makes his performance even more impressive is the fact he got very little, if any, practice with the first team, because Roethlisberger was expected to start. Look for the Steelers to be a lot more creative with this young, talented quarterback if Roethlisberger can’t play this week against the Oakland Raiders (3-8).In the AFC North title fight, the Cincinnati Bengals (8-3) moved out to a two game lead with an unimpressive 16-7 win over the lowly Cleveland Browns (1-10). This puts the Steelers in a three- way battle with the Ravens and the Jacksonville Jaguars for the final wildcard spot with 6-5 record. The Denver Broncos are one game ahead at 7-4.Overall, Mendenhall had a solid game with 95 yards on 24 carries. Dixon was 12 of 26 for 145 yards with one touchdown run, one touchdown pass and the critical interception.The Steelers will play Oakland here, travel to Cleveland and face the Green Bay Packers at Heinz Field. The Ravens face Green Bay, the Detroit Lions and the Chicago Bears. The Bengals have two really tough games after Detroit this week. They must play the Minnesota Vikings (10-1) on the road then the red hot 8-3 San Diego Chargers at home.If the Steelers are able to win their next three games they could be right back in the race for the AFC North title. With their top two quarterbacks out with injuries, it was supposed to be an easy win for the Baltimore Ravens. All the experts picked them, even Bill Cowher, but Dennis Dixon showed the world he can play football as the Steelers nearly upset the world before losing 20-17 in overtime.

A motion for the adoption of the long anticipated National Youth Policy is expected to be moved on Thursday in the National Assembly by Junior Education Minister Nicolette Henry.Junior Education Minister Nicolette HenryThe adoption of the policy will allow the Department of Culture, Youth and Sport within the Education Ministry along with its stakeholders, to carry out activities that target youth development.The policy is centred on a framework of five strategic areas. These are to improve the social, emotional and cultural skills of young people; produce a productive and enterprising youth workforce; develop quality education and market oriented skills; encourage leadership, participation and representation; and promote good health, security and safety.Presidential Adviser on Youth Empowerment Aubrey NortonEarlier this year, President David Granger had announced that the policy would come on stream soon. The policy was laid in the National Assembly on June 30, 2016.In August 2015, Presidential Adviser on Youth Empowerment Aubrey Norton had announced that the National Youth Policy draft had been completed and was awaiting review from President Granger and Education Minister, Dr Rupert Roopnaraine.The National Youth Policy is supposed to be a comprehensive policy document that states the vision of the Government of Guyana for the youths of the country and also how this vision would be realised by the Government. The Policy caters for the needs of the youths in the age group of 15-35 years, which constitutes over 50 per cent of the population.It also identifies the vision and the five key objectives that are further sub-divided into several priority areas for youth development. It further suggests policy imperatives that should be implemented in each of these identified priority areas.The previous Administration had held numerous consultations on this initiative in an effort to finalise and subsequently implement the policy.
Celebration erupted yesterday afternoon at the Criminal Court ‘C,’ Temple of Justice, after Judge Peter Gbeneweleh ordered talk show host Henry Costa released, describing his arrest and subsequent detention by the Liberian National Police (LNP) as “unthinkable and unbelievable.” Judge Gbeneweleh, in his ruling declared that it was “unthinkable and unbelievable,” that Costa was detained because “he had been hiding behind his microphone for the past three weeks to escape arrest.” State lawyers alleged that Costa was arrested because of his statement on radio that government unlawfully deported a Lebanese national, Sam Fawah, one of the owners of SSF, a construction company. The lawyers further alleged that Costa was invited to clarify his statement against the government, but Costa reportedly refused to attend the police hearing. However, Judge Gbeneweleh rhetorically asked, “How would the police say Costa had been behind the canopy of the radio to prevent his own arrest, until he was picked up on February 7, for curfew violation?” “Where did they arrest him, in his house or on the street?” Answering the question, he said, “Costa was not in hiding, he was arrested on the street because he violated the curfew.” He quoted Article 21 ( g) of the 1986 Constitution which says “The right to the writ of habeas corpus, being essential to the protection of human rights, shall be guaranteed at all times, and any person arrested or detained and not presented to court within the period specified may in consequence exercise this right.” Based on that, the Judge observed that it was necessary for Costa’s lawyers to file the writ of Habeas corpus before the court for Mr. Costa’s immediate release. According to him, curfew violation is not a crime rather if an individual is arrested because of violating it, that person is only liable to pay a fine of $25, not making specific reference to any of the currencies in circulation in the country. “You said, you arrested 34 persons including Costa in connection to curfew violation, but you went ahead to release 33 of those arrested leaving only Costa. What kind of justice is this?” Judge Gbeneweleh wondered. “It is a complete violation of the rights of his liberty as provided in the constitution,” the Judge declared. He explained that during the argument, state lawyers claimed that they invited Costa to appear before the police on several occasions to give clarity about statements he made on radio that government unlawfully deported a Lebanese national, Sam Fawah, one of the owners of SSF. “But, they failed to show any documentary evidence about the invitation they sent to Costa to attend their hearing to this court,” Judge Gbeneweleh said. Besides, he said, there was no appropriate writ to show that Costa was charged by the police beyond the 48 hours he was detained in violation of Article 21 (c) of the Constitution. “Therefore, the writ for habeas corpus is hereby granted and Costa is immediately released from further detention. It is hereby ordered, matter suspended,” Judge Gbeneweleh declared. The release order brought cheers from the eagerly waiting family members who had tried unsuccessfully to get Costa out of detention for more than three days.Immediately upon his release, Costa told journalists he would address the issue leading to his arrest on his talk show today, Friday. His statement was greeted with cheers and a round of applause from his supporters and admirers in the gathering as they shouted, “Costa has won the Ministry of Justice, and the government since he has been given justice. Nobody will stop him from saying the truth on radio.” Costa was temporary released last Tuesday and placed into the care of the Sheriff of the court by Judge Gbeneweleh, after Costa’s legal team filed a writ of habeas corpus for his unconditional release. He was arrested at about 2 a.m., on Saturday, February 7, after police said, he along with 34 others were in violation of the curfew imposed by government, as part of its fight against the Ebola Virus Disease (EVD).Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
0Shares0000AFC Leopards midfielder Whyvonne Isuza vies for the ball with Singida United’s Ally Kenny during their SportPesa Super Cup clash at the Afraha Stadium in Nakuru on June 5, 2018. PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluNAKURU, Kenya, Jun 5- Hopes of a Mashemeji Derby in the semi finals of the SportPesa Super Cup were dashed when Tanzanian outfit Singida United beat AFC Leopards 4-2 on post match penalties in the quarter finals on Tuesday evening.The game was forced to penalties after a barren draw in regulation time and AFC will have only themselves to blame after missing a penalty in regulation time, Whyvonne Isuza seeing his 68th minute kick saved by Singida keeper Peter Manyika. Singida have now booked a date against defending champions Gor Mahia, the game set to Thursday at 3pm.On penalties, only Ally Kenny missed for Singida with Shafik Batambuze, Adam Miraji, Danny Lyanga and Sumbi Elynyesia scoring.AFC missed two of their four kicks with Baker Lukooya hitting the crossbar while Moses Mburu struck his effort wide. Robinson Kamura and Isuza scored AFC’s efforts.The light afternoon showers at the Afraha Stadium made the playing conditions difficult with the ground becoming slippery and players finding it tough to have their feet on the ground.It almost cost Singida the opener within the opening three minutes when Salum Kipaga slipped as he tried to pass the ball back to his keeper, but good for him AFC forward Ray Omondi was not fast enough to the ball allowing Kennedy Juma to race back and block his effort at stealing the ball.AFC Leopards midfielder Marvin Nabwire vies for the ball with Singida United’s John Tibar during their SportPesa Super Cup clash at the Afraha Stadium in Nakuru on June 5, 2018. PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluSingida were doing all they can to pass the ball around despite the tough conditions of the Afraha pitch and they had a good chance in the sixth minute when Danny Lyanga’s header from a John Tibar cross was well handled by Ezekiel Owade in the AFC goal.Ingwe didn’t look organized in the opening minutes and they kept spraying stray passes with Singida picking them up and attempting to build up play.Amidst the confusion, Ingwe almost had the opener in the 22nd minute when Dennis Sikhayi’s dipping cross from the right headed on target, but Singida keeper Peter Manyika backtracked to turn the ball behind for a corner.Ingwe had an even better opportunity two minutes later when Brian Marita raced away from his markers on the right before slicing in a cross back, but Whyvone Isuza and Omondi clashed going for the same ball.The cross fell on Jaffary Owiti at the backpost but the youngster’s shot at goal was well handled by Manyika.On the other end, Owade almost gifted Singida the opener when he punched Deus Kaseke’s cross right into Habib Kyombo’s path, but the Tanzanian’s shot went wide.Owade made the same mistake in the 28th minute this time spilling Tibar’s shot from distance but the keeper dodged a bullet once again when Kyombo’s effort from the rebound unmarked inside the six yard box went wide.In the final seven minutes of the opening half, Ingwe had chances to break the deadlock.AFC Leopards winger Brian Marita wheels past Singida United’s Kennedy Juma during their SportPesa Super Cup clash at the Afraha Stadium in Nakuru on June 5, 2018.
