Photo/RAYMOND MAKHAYANAIROBI, Kenya, Nov 30- Former Ulinzi Stars hitman Stephen Waruru was the big casualty as new Harambee Stars boss Paul Put named his squad for the CECAFA Senior Challenge Cup which kicks off on Sunday, with Stars opening their campaign against Rwanda in Kakamega.The forward hit 13 goals in the just concluded season to finish third in the top scorers’ race but despite his scoring prowess has been overlooked by Put with Sony Sugar’s Benjamin Mosha and Zoo Kericho’s Nicholas Kipkurui also failing to make the cut. Also dropped from the initial squad that was named into camp is Nzoia Sugar midfielder Lawrence Juma while Ulinzi’s Omar Mbongi and Gor Mahia’s Kenneth Muguna are ruled out with sickness and injury respectively.In his 23-man squad, Put has included several rookies who will don the white, red and black of the national team in a competitive environment for the first time.Defenders Bernard Ochieng (Vihiga United), Charles Momanyi (Kakamega Homeboyz), and Isaac Kipyegon (Zoo Kericho) as well as Thika United midfield spoiler Said Tsuma have all earned places in the Belgian’s maiden squad.The forward line will be led by Kenyan premier league golden boot winner Massoud Juma who struck 17 times in the league and he will hope to reciprocate the same form for the national team and prove his doubters wrong.Also included alongside him is Nakumatt’s Kepha Aswani and AFC Leopards youngster Vincent Oburu who has been a revelation in the six months he has played at the den.Harambee Stars players in training.

Stakes raised for Mourinho-Conte feud in Cup final showdown

first_imgIf it is, nothing will give Conte more joy than bowing out by winning a cup competition for the first time as a coach by beating the man with whom he has clashed most regularly and bitterly since arriving in England.Conte labelled Mourinho a “little man” and “fake” at the peak of their spat in December.Days earlier, Mourinho had appeared to allude to a suspension given to Conte for allegedly failing to report match-fixing when coaching at Siena. Conte later won an appeal, clearing him of any wrongdoing in the case.The root of their feud comes from Conte’s success in his first campaign at Chelsea, just a season after Mourinho’s second spell at Stamford Bridge ended in the Portuguese being sacked having won just four of Chelsea’s first 16 league games, in December 2015.On his first return as a visiting manager, Mourinho protested at what he perceived as Conte’s “humiliating” celebrations in a 4-0 victory for the Blues over United.Conte then warned his players at the start of this season not to let their standards slip to the levels of “the last season with Mourinho”.– Chelsea slip –The winner takes it all: Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte are seeking FA Cup success to mask other disappointments this season © AFP / Ian KINGTON, Oli SCARFFIn hindsight, the Italian was right to warn against complacency as Chelsea have fallen well short of the form they showed in storming to the title last season.A fifth-placed finish in the Premier League was confirmed when they capitulated 3-0 to Newcastle on the final day of the season on Sunday.“To finish fifth is a big disappointment. How damaging is it not to be in the Champions League? You’ll have to ask the club about that,” Conte said, only intensifying speculation about his future.“If we play like this in the FA Cup final, we don’t have a chance. We have six days to change our approach, our desire, our will to fight because we can do much better.”Mourinho has at least ensured Champions League qualification for next season via a second-place finish in the Premier League.However, a record 19-point gap to champions Manchester City and a deeply disappointing Champions League last-16 exit to Sevilla means the Portuguese is also left hanging on until the final game of the season to deliver a trophy that would silence some of the critics of United’s often turgid performances, lacking in the invention and flair displayed by rivals City and Champions League finalists Liverpool.“Because I almost do that all the time (win a trophy), when I don’t do it, you (the media) kill me,” said Mourinho on the prospect of going without a trophy in his second season at Old Trafford. “Which is what you are all ready to do.”To do so, Mourinho must shake United out of their own end-of-season slumber — the Red Devils have scored just once in their past three games.Whether Mourinho can close the gap on City next season will depend on his ability to finally get the best out of his attacking talent, particularly marquee signings Paul Pogba and Alexis Sanchez.Starting that process with a trophy on Saturday would be a strong statement of intent from United, and give Mourinho the extra satisfaction of showing Conte how short-lived life as Chelsea manager under ruthless Russian owner Roman Abramovich can be.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Manchester United’s Jose Mourinho and Chelsea’s Antonio Conte have repeatedly clashed © AFP / Glyn KIRKLONDON, United Kingdom, May 16 – Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte renew hostilities with the stakes heightened when Manchester United and Chelsea face off in Saturday’s FA Cup final needing silverware to mask this season’s flaws.Conte’s need is the greater. Having missed out on Champions League football for next season, many expect the Wembley showpiece to be the Italian’s final match in charge at Stamford Bridge, regardless of the outcome.last_img read more

RARE BIRD MAKES WELCOME RETURN TO DONEGAL

first_imgThe rare Grey PartridgesThe Grey Partridge, one of Ireland’s rarest and most endangered bird species is set to make a welcome return to Donegal through a new reintroduction project based on Inch Island in Lough Swilly.The Inch Partridge Project which is run by Inch Gun Club on Strahack Farm, Inch Island aims to use captive breeding and soft release techniques to reintroduce one of Ireland’s most endangered farmland birds into the wild.Partridge leaving penIn a similar fate as the Corncrake the lessor known Grey Partridge has suffered in Ireland due to changes in farming practices and a reduction in predator control generally.The project on Inch Island which is in its second full year has received funding from the Heritage Council and both the National Association of Regional Game Councils and Donegal Game and Wildlife Council to help develop its capacity to breed and release grey partridge into the wild and to also provide suitable safe breeding habitat for the birds. According to Emmett Johnston of the National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS), who are also a partner in the project, “The Grey Partridge was virtually extinct in Ireland before a captive breeding programme was begun in Borra, Co. Offaly during the 1990’s.The Borra project has since proven to be a huge success and the project on Inch island is honoured to be chosen as one of only three new locations throughout Ireland to expand the scheme to reintroduction these beautiful birds back into their natural habitat”.The Borra scheme is now held up as a best practice farmland bird reintroduction with the project receiving many international awards.Inch island was chosen above other locations due to its island geography which can be more easily managed for predators, its active gun club and most importantly a landowner who is willing to work his farm as a test or demonstration site for the duration of the project. Boyd Bryce the farmer on whose land the project is hosted said, “I have an interest in birds on the farm and I remember hearing and seeing many wild birds when I was out working in the fields in my youth, I don’t’ hear many of them today and I’ll be happy to see the birds back on the island and to help their survival in Ireland”.A lot of work will be undertaken on Strahack Farm to ensure suitable nesting and feeding habitats are available for the released birds. Special game crops are sown on arable field edges to provide nest sites and up to 10km of electric fence wire will be used to create a safe zone for newly release juveniles.Inch Gun club who have a lot of experience with predator management including fox, crow and rat control will also assist with the captive breeding and release pen management.If you would like to find out more about the project, there will be an open day as part of Heritage Week on Sunday 30th of August at Strahack farm buildings, Inch Island. There will be discussion and practical demonstrations on captive breeding and reintroduction techniques, predator control and farming for high value nature.

MCBREARTY HOPING TO NAIL DOWN STARTING SPOT UNDER RORY GALLAGHER

first_imgPaddy McBrearty wants to nail down a regular starting spot under new Donegal manager Rory Gallagher.Patrick McBrearty is hoping he can become a regular under new Donegal manager Rory Gallagher. McBrearty was dropped for the Ulster SFC final last season and also started the All-Ireland final on the bench.McBrearty was deployed as an impact sub by Jim McGuinness after struggling to convert his club form with Kilcar to Donegal. McBrearty admitted that it frustrated him, and he’s now hoping he can consistently perform on a regular basis under new manager Rory Gallagher.However, McBrearty doesn’t want to play a bit-part role and wants to be a regular starter under Gallagher next season.McBrearty also revealed that he was surprised Gallagher applied for the job.McBrearty said, “I go out for my club, I would kick ten points and then come back for Donegal, score nothing and they’d say, ‘Why is he doing it for the club?’ “It is frustrating. People are often saying it to me.“I didn’t actually think he would go for it. Fair play to him because they are big shoes to fill after Jim – three Ulsters, an All-Ireland and getting to another final.“That was a massive achievement after where we were in 2010 but Rory had a part to play in that.“He was probably the number one choice but it’s great to have him involved. We know what he’s like, we had him in 2011, 2012 and 2013. He’s a very shrewd operator and is probably one of the best coaches I’ve ever had. MCBREARTY HOPING TO NAIL DOWN STARTING SPOT UNDER RORY GALLAGHER was last modified: December 1st, 2014 by Mark ForkerShare 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:donegalGAAnewspatrick mcbreartySportlast_img read more

Donegal planning corruption report remains unpublished after a year

first_imgA report into alleged planning corruption in Co Donegal remains unpublished almost a year after being submitted to the Minister for Local Government.Senior counsel Rory Mulcahy was appointed three years ago to prepare a review into alleged planning irregularities by Donegal County Council, dating back over more than a decade.The allegations from a whistleblower who worked inside the council include that a colleague submitted applications on behalf of friends and family, forged signatures and destroyed recommendations of other planners. Mr Mulcahy was originally due to submit his final report on October 31st, 2015, but the then Department of Environment blamed “unforeseen delays” which held the inquiry up by more than a year and a half.Minister for Housing, Planning and Local Government Eoghan Murphy has confirmed to the Irish Times the final report has been on his desk since June last year.“My department is currently reviewing and assessing the contents of senior counsel’s report and I have requested the advice of the Attorney General in respect of a number of points,” he said.“When I have received the attorney’s advice, my department will finalise a submission for me and I will be in a position to consider the report in full and to take any appropriate further action.”Delay Fianna Fáil’s Barry Cowen, the party’s former housing and planning spokesman, has demanded Mr Murphy go before the Dáil to explain the reasons for the hold up in the inquiry.“It has been nine or 10 months since this report landed on the desk of the Minister,” he said. “Taking that period of time for his officials to formulate a response, and a recommendation to him, seems strange to say the least.”Mr Cowen said the Minister needed to act more quickly in order to assure the electorate the planning system was beyond reproach and that if there was any wrongdoing, there would be accountability. “The public are entitled to know why this is taking so long,” he said.In 2013, the Department of the Environment agreed to a High Court order overturning its own findings of no evidence of wrongdoing in the planning department of Donegal County Council, mostly during the 1990s.It also apologised and agreed to pay €25,000 damages to former senior planner Gerard Convie, who had made the claims. Mr Convie resigned from Donegal County Council in 2007. Findings in a Department of the Environment report placed before the Dáil in June 2012 dismissed his allegations of irregular planning decisions within the council.Under the High Court settlement, the report’s findings were quashed.The department also acknowledged the “sincerely held concerns” of Mr Convie in relation to planning matters in Donegal and regretted any adverse comment on his motivation and any negative impact on his good name, professional integrity or reputation.Mr Convie had compiled a dossier of cases spanning more than a decade in which be believed regulations had been flouted. He took the dossier to the government and persuaded then minister for the environment John Gormley to begin an independent review. This was later dropped and replaced with an internal review with the change of government in 2011.That was completed in 2012, and its conclusions that there were no evidence of irregularities, as well as its questioning of Mr Convie’s motives, led to his successful High Court challenge.Donegal planning corruption report remains unpublished after a year was last modified: May 10th, 2018 by StephenShare 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:donegalplanninglast_img read more

7 Steps to an Energy-Efficient House: 2. The Roof

first_imgEditor’s introduction: With energy prices rising again, many homeowners are planning energy-efficiency improvements to their homes. But most people are unsure of where to begin, and even seasoned builders don’t always know which priorities should rise to the top of the list. Betsy Pettit, an architect at Building Science Corporation , recommends starting where you can get the most bang for the buck.Step 2: To stop air leaks and reduce heat loss, seal up your home’s capTable of Contents:1. The Basement2. The Roof3. The Walls4. The Windows5. Mechanicals6. Appliances7. Renewable EnergyIf air leaks in at the bottom of a house, it also leaks out at the top, making the house cold and drafty in winter. A poorly insulated roof also can make a house hot in summer.Air-sealing work should always accompany any insulation improvements. Using spray foam under a roof can eliminate the need for roof venting, which is tricky in complicated roofs. Other insulation options include cellulose on the attic floor or rigid insulation on top of the roof sheathing.This article is adapted from Betsy Pettit’s Remodeling for Energy Efficiency in Fine Homebuilding magazine.
