Coach Manning Urges Red Lions, BYC to Utilize Midfield Attacks

first_imgVeteran Old Timers soccer coach Boniface Manning has called on the technical teams of two of Liberia’s representatives in CAF tournaments to design effective midfield tactics to ensure success.Coach Manning, who holds a CAF License B Certificate, told the Daily Observer yesterday that effective use of a team’s midfield is a sure way of handling the match in effectively.“It depends on the score sheet,” Coach Manning said, “when you are in the lead, use the midfield to hold on to the ball and frustrate your opponent.”He said, “Since your opponent is trailing, you can deny him the ball and frustrate him and make his job more difficult.”He said many teams are defeated when they fail to understand the midfield concept and noted that with the achievement of Barrack Young Controllers, and the campaign of Red Lions, technical coaches should ensure an effective design.“Poor handling of the midfield brings enormous pressure to bear on the defense and this can cause an own goal,” he said.In a demonstration, Coach Manning said there are many ways a team can build its attacks.“You can build from the midfield but you have to make sure that you have tireless wingers who will draw in, when the four midfielders advance,” he said.He further explained that when players are fit, with abundant energy, providing support to team-mates becomes a matter of course.“Consider counter attacks,” Coach Manning said, “in a counter attack a team using the modern 4-4-2 formation, must have players with strong abundant skills.”“Such players must be able to singlehandedly take their opponents’ defense on, and be willing to release the ball when the goalkeeper is not expecting a shot,” Coach Manning said.He said the two teams representing Liberia must go in for the goals before their opponents settle to play their own game.He explained excitedly about a compact midfield to ease the pressure on the goalkeeper, and said that coaching knowledge and its application is essential for success on the field.He urged players of Red Lions and Barrack Young Controllers not to relent because “the whole soccer community is behind you in your determination to change Liberian soccer history.”Coach Manning played for the national soccer team in the 70s but was injured in a friendly match against Sierra Leones’ Leone Stars.Reports from that period said he was a darling on the ball, who did what he wanted with the ball which endeared him to many soccer fans. He coached the former sensational club, La Modelle International (along with Coach Frank Jericho Nagbe) and is presently coaching Veterans Oldtimers soccer team that is presently leading the LONA league table.He has helped to develop many Liberian soccer players into national prominence.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Works to address Alberttown drainage to commence soon

first_imgThe role of municipal councillors is to represent residents in their constituency, and to consider the well-being and interest of the entire municipality. A councillor also helps to develop and evaluate the policies and programmes of a city or town.His Worship the Mayor of Georgetown, Pandit Ubraj Narine, accompanied by City Councillors (M&CC) who fanned out in the community of Alberttown, met residents of that city ward on Sunday.City Mayor Ubraj Narine and councillors during a community meeting with residents of Alberttown on SundayThe exercise undertaken by the municipality is in keeping with its mandate to listen to concerns of city residents and find timely solutions.Following a walkabout exercise by the team, a meeting was subsequently held at the Saint Ambrose Primary School, where several community members and youths were gathered. Most of those present highlighted the unsanitary condition of the drains in the community.Michelle Mitchel told the Department of Public Information (DPI) that the drain which runs east-west at the front of her house needs urgent attention. She said the current condition of the drain facilitates the breeding of a lot of flies and mosquitoes.Pandit Ubraj Narine distributing backpacks to students in the ward of Alberttown on SundayEsan Hamilton, another worried resident, said, “My concern is the same as everyone else: the drainage. The gutters at the front and back of my home are clogged up with thick mud, and the water is unhygienic.”Those attending the meeting were assured that their drainage concerns would be a thing of the past. Mayor Narine stated that, within this week, the municipality would initiate works to address the issue. “We can also place the bins by the weekend, and I will come myself and assist in the cleaning of the drain,” he pledged.Mayor Narine ended his Sunday outreach with a massive backpack and school supplies’ distribution to students in the community of Charlestown.last_img read more

Four indicted for teen killing

first_imgFour teenagers and two men have been indicted on charges of murder in the August 2005 slaying of a 16-year-old Lancaster boy who was shot and killed while playing pool with family and friends. Prosecutors said their decision to present the case in a secret proceeding before a grand jury rather than go through a standard preliminary hearing had more to do with logistics than strategy. “It was taking awhile to get the preliminary hearing off the ground because of the number of attorneys involved and getting them and myself in court at the same time, so I decided to proceed with a grand jury indictment,” Deputy District Attorney Benny Osorio said. The defendants are accused in the killing of Alfredo Briano, who was shot Aug. 12 at Vaughn’s Billiards in the 2000 block of East Palmdale Boulevard after he and his companions were confronted by apparent gang members who walked into the pool hall. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORE11 theater productions to see in Southern California this week, Dec. 27-Jan. 2Charged are Guillermo “Scooby” Huerta, 27; Erik Munoz Perez, 24; Joseph Armondo Bonilla, 17; Rudy Albert Fernandez, 18; Filiberto Ocobachi, 18; and Oscar Bonilla, 16. Prosecutors are alleging that Joseph Bonilla fired the fatal shot. All of the defendants remained in custody and were scheduled to appear next month for a pretrial hearing in a downtown Los Angeles Superior Court. A grand jury was convened in early May to hear evidence presented by Osorio, a hearing that took about three days. The defendants and their attorneys were not present. The indictment remained sealed until the defendants were arraigned, which happened the week of May 15. Perez’s attorney, Robert Nadler, said indictments are rare but indicated he understood why Osorio did it that way. “It’s certainly something he’s able to do. It doesn’t happen very often. The reason it happened was because with six defendants in the case, it was hard to get everyone together to do a prelim,” Nadler said. The defense attorneys will get transcripts of the proceedings. Nadler said he would have preferred a preliminary hearing where the defense gets to cross-examine witnesses. “I like to cross-examine witnesses and see what they have to say and how they say it. I wished to have the opportunity and would have liked to, however, the prosecution can do it this way. They chose to do it this way, and that’s where things stand,” Nadler said. Nadler said he and his client are looking forward to presenting their side of the case. “We’re very confident and very much looking forward to getting this case to trial because my client is innocent, and we believe the jury is going to see that,” Nadler said. Osorio said the six defendants were indicted under a gang allegation, meaning the killing was committed on behalf of or to benefit a street gang. Detectives said Briano and his companions had been playing pool and minding their own business when a group of two females and six males walked into the pool hall and challenged them about their gang association. The boy and the others denied being gang members, investigators said. A fight broke out, and one of the assailants pulled out a gun and shot the boy. After the shooting, witnesses told deputies, as many as five people got into a black sport utility vehicle and sped off. Deputies spotted an SUV matching the description and chased it until it stopped near Avenue Q and 4th Street East. A gun believed to have been used in the slaying was found in weeds on a dirt road behind an apartment building, along the route that the pursuit took. karen.maeshiro@dailynews.com (661) 267-5744160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Pain: Evolution or Curse?

first_img(Visited 20 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0 It doesn’t take much “evolution” to create a toxin, or to switch on or amplify the pain response.  Are these good things gone bad?Simple origin of scorpion sting:  In “How scorpion gets its sting,” Science Daily says that scorpion venom may have started out as a benign protein in the defensin class.  Defensins are so named for their ability to fight off viral, bacterial or fungal pests.  A new paper compared scorpion venom to a particular defensin, and found that it could have evolved by a single genetic event.  “The most significant findings of our paper are the predictability of scorpion toxicity evolution — arising via structural deletion of a loop on an ancestral defensin scaffold recruited into the venom to remove steric hindrance of peptide-channel interaction,” said the lead author of a paper in Molecular Biology and Evolution.  This suggests that a simple one-time change to an existing protein led to a “functional shift of proteins from fighting against microbes to attacking prey.”  The BBC News describes how the team converted a defensin into a toxin with the single change.Short circuit turns up pain dial:  Another Science Daily article describes how pain can be intensified by a “short circuit” in ion channels in the cell.  Drugs that try to close the channels to reduce pain sometimes increase it.  Why?  The closure creates a leak, allowing more hormones to enter.  “This ‘electrical leak’ activates the pain nerves, thus increasing the sensation of pain.”  One particular ion channel, TRPM3, acts as a “molecular fire detector,” the article says.Parasite prevents locust swarm:  Locust plagues can be devastating to local economies, wiping out the food supply, as described in the Old Testament book of Joel and the plagues of Egypt.  PhysOrg describes how locust swarms begin with runaway production of aggregation pheromones by gut bacteria.  These hormones, however, are kept in check in some populations by a microsporidian parasite.  Chinese scientists found that the parasite acidifies the locust hindgut, reducing the production of aggregation pheromones, effectively switching off swarming behavior and returning the insects to individual behavior.  They don’t know why the parasite would want to reduce swarming, since it counter-intuitively would seem to reduce the parasites’ ability to spread.  While they work on that, they hope that artificial pheromones can reduce swarming without pesticides.  Their paper is published in PNAS.Update 1/19/14:  The locust genome has been decoded, Science Daily reported.  Surprisingly, it is the largest genome of any animal deciphered so far: 6.5 gigabases.  It seems the genome has been subject to excess transposable elements and gene repetitions, some of which may be implicated in the swarming behavior.This entry augments the 12/17/13 entry about natural evil.  It doesn’t solve all the theological/philosophical problems with the origin of natural evil, but does illustrate how minor changes can sometimes create major effects.  Some aspects of the curse may not have involved direct creation of pain-causing machines, as much as God releasing nature to take its own course.  Without the same level of divine providence, things could break down, forcing living things to adapt to broken things, using their designed mechanisms for robustness in the new regime of the curse.  In other cases, balances that had been maintained by dynamic equilibrium (homeostasis) before sin were allowed to shift, leading to catastrophic consequences like locust plagues.Man’s disobedience turned Earth into a rebel base.  A holy God would be justified in destroying it, now that it contained a dangerous infection (consider the Flood – and the possibility that fallen angels brought the infection of evil to a new level).  Still, God is longsuffering and gives man time to repent.  He demonstrated His love for us in that, while we were still sinners, Christ died for us (Romans 5:8).  The Creator became incarnate and lived among us, taking on our judgment on the cross, so that we might have a way out of the curse and have hope of paradise regained.   See our previous commentary for reasons the evolutionary story is no comfort (or explanation) at all.last_img read more
