Minnesota pushes past South Dakota

first_imgSophomore pitcher Sara Groenewegen was next to bat and smashed the ball deep over the center field wall, driving in the three runs. After junior pitcher Nikki Anderson relieved Stober, Groenewegen closed out the night.  “Hitting is contagious. Attitudes are contagious. Our energy is contagious,” senior infielder Kaitlyn Richardson said. “With our team, once our momentum starts, we just keep rolling. We never feel too down. Once we get that first hit, we start rolling.” “[Competing is] all you can ever do. [You have to] get out there, compete like crazy and try to win. When you try to make things perfect, you get caught up,” Allister said in February. And though the latest matchup was a nonconference game, the Gophers played with as much intensity as their home opener against top-10 ranked Michigan. Sophomore infielder Sam Macken started Minnesota off with a single into right field, which Richardson followed with a double.  The Gophers fell behind early Wednesday after freshman pitcher Kylie Stober gave up two solo home runs.

Allister’s team brought her words to life Wednesday.center_img Junior catcher Taylor LeMay affirmed the Gophers’ dominance with a home run in the bottom of the fourth inning, which her successors followed with two more runs. “I didn’t even know where it went. I was just worried about touching first base,” Groenewegen said. “My game plan was to get a strike and hit it, and I did.”Minnesota controlled the game from there. Since the season’s beginning, head coach Jessica Allister has preached the importance of competing at all times. Groenewegen threw a no-hitter in her last appearance and kept the momentum rolling Wednesday, closing out the contest with three strikeouts in two innings of relief. The run support gave Minnesota’s pitchers the opportunity to relax while in the circle. But in the bottom of the third inning, the Gophers turned up the heat, scoring three runs.  “I just go in, throw strikes, and good things happen,” Groenewegen said.last_img read more

CARICOM’s Trade with Latin America: Insurmountable barriers?

first_img A Post-COVID Shift in Global Supply Chains I begin this week by acknowledging Caribbean Community (CARICOM) Day, which is customarily July 4, but this year, will be commemorated on Monday, July 6. Also, on July 1, the Prime Minister of St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Dr. Hon. Ralph Gonsalves, will assume the chair of the CARICOM Conference of Heads of Government. I read a recent news report about a Jamaican company, Spur Tree Spices, beginning to export its products to Costa Rica. Given the importance of this development, I decided to look this week at CARICOM’s trade with Latin American countries, focusing specifically on Mexico, Central and South America. CARICOM’s natural trading partners are in this hemisphere, Canada, USA, and the countries in Latin America and the Caribbean. The region’s principal trading partners, however, are USA, European Union (EU) including Britain, and Canada. Where are the Latin American countries? You will note that there is something in common between CARICOM and its principal trading partners which is a historic relationship with Britain. In most of CARICOM, the official language is English, while in Latin America, it is Spanish and Portuguese. In the 18th and 19th centuries, there was a relationship with some countries in Latin America e.g. Venezuela. British West Indians would later find work and residence in Ecuador, Colombia, Honduras, Costa Rica, Panama and Nicaragua leaving a West Indian diaspora in most of these countries. In the 1990s and 2000s, there was CARICOM interest in promoting trade with Latin America. The CARICOM/Venezuela Trade Agreement was concluded in 1992; the CARICOM/Colombia trade agreement in 1994, and CARICOM/Costa Rica in 2004. There was quite a bit of activity around the Free Trade Area of the Americas (FTAA) negotiations which were abandoned in 2005. There was also the PetroCaribe Agreement with Venezuela which, besides petroleum, had a trade component. These trade agreements have been under-utilized. The relationship with Venezuela is now mired in political controversy. Trade in Services – For CARICOM, Tourism dominates By Elizabeth Morgan Trinidad and Tobago has partial scope agreements with Panama, El Salvador and Guatemala; Guyana with Brazil; and Belize has agreements with all her neighbours. You may be interested in… The twenty (20) Latin American countries from Mexico in the north to the tip of South America present CARICOM countries with a market of 595 million people. Panama is about an hour’s flying time from Jamaica in the north; Trinidad and Tobago is less than an hour from Venezuela in the south; Belize is in Central America; and Guyana and Suriname are in South America. Yet, for some in CARICOM, language and culture are barriers to trade. Trade figures between CARICOM and these Latin American countries have been consistently low. In 2019, total CARICOM goods exports to the 20 countries is estimated at about US$2.2 billion and imports at about US$3 billion giving Latin America a trade surplus. In trade in services, there has been some attempt to encourage tourism and investments from Latin America. There should be room to expand trade. Oct 1, 2020 What has been CARICOM’s Foreign Trade Strategy and Agenda? Sep 16, 2020 The question is now being posed; post COVID-19, should there be a relocation of global supply chains to regions, would Latin America and the Caribbean be able to benefit? I am more narrowly asking whether CARICOM countries could benefit? Would they be able to collaborate with Latin American countries in joint ventures? What has been CARICOM’s Foreign Trade Strategy and Agenda?By Elizabeth Morgan On February 20, 2019, my article in the Gleaner was titled “Needed: A CARICOM Foreign Trade Strategy and Agenda”.  On September 2, 2020, I addressed “Jamaica’s Trade Performance: Turbulence Ahead”.

The planned visit by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau…July 22, 2020In “CARICOM”CARICOM’s Trade with Asian Countries: Mainly about importsOver the past months, I have written a series of articles on CARICOM’s trade with its trading partners – USA, Canada, United Kingdom (UK), European Union (EU), Latin America and Africa.

This week, I will complete this series by…September 23, 2020In “Indepth”Share this on WhatsApp Resident diplomatic representation is also weak. Several Latin American countries are represented in the CARICOM region but few CARICOM countries are resident in Latin America. The main countries having more than one CARICOM embassy were Brazil, Mexico, and Venezuela. Trade-in-Services and Technology: More missed opportunities… There were proposals to negotiate trade agreements with Central America and MERCOSUR, neither of which came to fruition. There was also interest from Mexico and Chile. Promoting trade with Brazil has not borne fruit as intended.

COPA is the only Latin American airline which flies into the CARICOM region (Guyana, Belize, Barbados, Trinidad and Tobago, and Jamaica). Caribbean Airlines goes to Caracas, Venezuela. Otherwise, the route to Latin America is through Miami, Florida. Relations within the Western Hemisphere: an uneasy alliance CARICOM countries need to consider Latin America as a viable market for both goods and services. Language, culture, and market requirements should not be insurmountable barriers to trade. Spur Tree Spices is showing that there could be opportunities if CARICOM private sectors and governments are prepared to conduct further exploration even with projected economic recession.last_img read more

International Friendly Preview: Germany vs. Holland (LIVE on Multi-TV)

first_imgGermany face familiar foe, Holland in an International friendly tonight on Multi-TV, in a match that promises to be anything but friendly!With Germany’s coach Joachim Low’s confidence in 4-2-3-1 at an all time high, the coach will undoubtedly be looking to further investigate his contingencies in the wake of the draw with Ukraine.Clearly utilising this round of friendlies to sound out a ‘Plan B’ formation, Joachim Low used Friday’s clash against Ukraine to test an experimental 3-4-2-1 with wing-backs providing the width.Finding themselves down 3-1 at half time, Low has since admitted to scrapping the idea of three centre-backs. He has spoken of interest in using a more traditional 4-4-2 formation versus the Dutch, Miroslav Klose’s fitness permitting, but whether the pair will play from the start is highly debatable, given that the coach confirmed on Monday that Mesut Ozil will be in his first XI.Borussia Monchengladbach’s Marco Reus is likely to get some playing time having rejoined the national side after recovering from a stomach virus, while Dortmund’s Marcel Schmelzer has been ruled out for the clash.In the Oranje corner, Gregory van der Wiel has recovered from a groin problem and is expected to take Khalid Boulahrouz’s place at right-back again. Mark van Bommel, Kevin Strootman and Klass-Jan Huntelaar were all rested against Switzerland and are expected to start against the Germans. Tottenham’s Rafael van der Vaart will miss out through a hamstring problem, while Ibrahim Afellay and Arjen Robben are also notable absentees. Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger also requested that Van Marwijk rest Robin van Persie for this clash, so the Gunners striker also misses out.MATCH TRIVIA• Germany have met the Netherlands seven times before in total. Of those games, the Germans have won only once, drawing three and losing the remaining three.• Germany have never won at home to the Netherlands.• The match is being played at Hamburg’s home ground, the Imtech Arena, familiar territory for Oranje defender Jeffrey Bruma, who unfortunately misses out due to injury.• Netherlands striker Klass-Jan Huntelaar has scored 21 goals in 20 matches in all competitions this term at Bundesliga side Schalke.• Equally devastating in front of goal, Mario Gomez has 20 goals in 18 appearances for club side Bayern Munich this season.• Germany’s last draw before Friday’s match against Ukraine was versus Poland, which Die Mannschaft responded to by beating Turkey 3-1 away from home in the following game.Germany vs. Holland kicks-off at 7:45pm on Joy Sports and Adom-TV on Multi-TV. Pre-match discussions begin at 7:15pmLeague action resumes at the weekend on Multi-TV.

Eddie Hearn reveals five blockbuster virtual press conferences he is in talks over including Carl Froch vs Joe Calzaghe

Travel Diary // Vietnam 2017 Rebekah Vardy scores an impressive penalty in six-inch heelscenter_img EDDIE HEARN revealed he is in talks to set up five virtual press conferences for blockbuster fights we never got to see including Joe Calzaghe vs Carl Froch.The boxing promoter desperately wants to keep fans engaged in the sport during the coronavirus lockdown with all events put on hold for the foreseeable future.Carl Froch called on Joe Calzaghe to come out of retirement to settle an old score but the Welshman was having none of itEddie Hearn is working on a way of getting some mammoth press conferences set up between boxersCredit: News Group Newspapers LtdSo with no bouts to get excited for and therefore no pre-fight wars of words, Hearn wants to give people a glimpse of what could have been.And he has given an insight into the pressers – presumably done via Zoom – he is in the process of trying to set up.Now fans clearly missing their boxing fix are urging Matchroom chief Hearn to get them done.One tweeted: “This is an epic idea from Eddie ngl.”And another said: “I’ll pay 20 quid to watch them all each.”Joe Calzaghe vs Carl FrochFroch may be 42 but he reckons he would come out of retirement for a chance to step into the ring with 48-year-old Calzaghe.Welsh legend Calzaghe hung up his gloves in 2008 at 46-0 before he could face The Cobra and laughed off Froch’s suggestion.He is happy in retirement and rests easy as he insists the 33-2 Froch would have been no match for him during his prime.He told talkSPORT: “It’s mad, I’m still living in his head after all these years. I’ve done everything you can achieve in boxing.“I know what would have happened and I don’t take much notice of what he says.“When I was at my peak I’d have been too fast and too sharp for him. I think I’d have beaten any super-middleweight, maybe not Roy Jones Jr at his peak.”George Groves vs James DeGaleGroves beat DeGale way back in May 2011 with a controversial majority decision to secure the Commonwealth and British super-middleweight titles.It was the first pro defeat for DeGale and despite promoter Frank Warren insisting they would meet again, a rematch never materialised.Groves retired in January 2019 with a record of 28-4 and then urged DeGale to do the same after he was beaten by Chris Eubank Jr last year.But while the respect is still there between the pair, we never got the chance to see DeGale try and settle the score inside the ring. George Groves beat James DeGale in 2011 but the pair never stepped into the ring together againCredit: News Group Newspapers LtdAmir Khan vs Kell BrookThis is one of the fights that could still take place – although it looks increasingly unlikely.The long-term foes have managed to avoid each other over recent years despite plenty of fans calling for the pair to have it out inside the ring.But Special K virtually put an end to any final hopes of the all-British affair in February as he instead targeted Liam Smith.Speaking about Khan, Brook said: “He’s a waste of time.”However, Hearn said: “I’d jump at that fight this summer. It’s a huge fight. Just to be part of the build-up would be special but we can’t waste our strategy and energy talking about it.”Devin Haney vs Ryan GarciaHearn did speak about trying to get Haney and Garcia to fight early in 2020 but that never came to fruition.The lightweight pair, both 21 with blemish-free pro records, met as amateurs but they will surely have the chance to claim the bragging rights for real at some point in their career.However, Garcia’s head trainer, Eddy Reynoso, believes that his fighter needs a few more fights before taking on the likes of Floyd Mayweather’s prodigy Haney.Kell Brook labelled Amir Khan a “waste of space” with their all-British bout looking unlikelyCredit: PA:Press AssociationReynoso said: “I would like him to have a couple more fights, because in the last three fights we have only fought for a combined four rounds.“He still needs to learn more, fight with boxers who can give him a battle, boxers who are giving him things to work on inside the ring.”Scott Fitzgerald vs Anthony FowlerFowler suffered his only pro loss at the hands of Fitzgerald in March 2019 and with it missed out on the chance to land the WBA International super-welterweight title.Preston-born Fitzgerald survived a ninth-round onslaught before sending rival Fowler to the canvas and winning on a split decision with two horror black eyes.The British duo were due for a rematch staged at Deepdale, the home of Preston North End, at the end of May.But those plans had to be shelved – even before the British super-welterweight champ had his boxing licence suspended following his arrest on suspicion of assaulting a woman.The unbeaten Brit confirmed on social media that he spent Monday night in a cell after a “kick off” with his ex-partner and her family.Scott Fitzgerald could barely open his eyes after his win over Anthony FowlerCredit: Instagram @eddiehearnJoe Calzaghe speaks about hypothetical Carl Froch fight Top 5 Best Budget Hotels In Dubai under AED 400 a night.

Black Dragon celebrates 20 years on Saturday Night with World Title Fight

first_imgLike Jason and the Argonauts chasing the golden fleece, the club moved to different locations around the city over the next few years looking for the perfect home.From Lombard Street, they moved into the Shantalla community  centre for a couple of years and then on to the old Columban Hall on sea road, but as they continued to grow and expand, they eventually moved into a commercial unit in Glenrock business park in Ballybane.Here they stayed for over three years before moving into a 5000 square feet unit in Riverside Industrial estate where they made their home.The club was going great and everyone was delighted with the new premises which had proper showers and changing rooms, a large training area, boxing rings, lots of punch bags, pads, skipping ropes, mats, treadmills, weights area, office etc and Black Dragon was fast establishing itself as the most successful kickboxing club in the country.But then disaster struck in March 2011 – as Foley was busy organising a big International promotion in the Black Box Theatre, at which he had flown in several fighters from the USA, France and the UK, he was informed that his gym was on fire just as he was walking out behind one of his fighters to face the American two time World Classic champion for the main event.Foley’s camp claimed victory that night and crowned another World champion, but it was a bitter sweet victory as the Black Dragon gym was completely engulfed in what was described as one of the biggest fires in Galway city in some forty or fifty years and a lifetime of work went up in smoke.A couple of weeks later, the club were offered a vacant unit at the top of the Riverside Industrial Estate which they gratefully accepted and the task of rebuilding began.Without even a skipping rope to their name, they gutted and cleared out and scrubbed the unit and with the help of the good willed people of Galway, they were back on track in record time and once again opened their doors to the masses.The club not only trains champion fighters, travels the World as a sporting ambassador for the city, keeps kids off the streets, helps promote health and fitness, trains adults and children alike in discipline, self defence and the all important  street awareness, but it has also been involved with several charities over the years and has helped raise almost a quarter of a million euros for good causes through the many White Collar Boxing programmes and fight nights they are involved with.This coming Saturday in the Clayton Hotel, will see another of Foleys proteges take to the ring in the biggest fight of his life, when current European champ Paul “the hurricane” Huish from Fana Burca in Knocknacarra, will square off with Dutch Thai boxer Dwane Panka from the World renowned “Mejiro gym” in Amsterdam for the vacant IKF World Lightweight K-1 title.Huish, who first came to the Black Dragon club in the old Columban hall when he was just eleven years old and has just recently turned twenty six, has his own story to tell.He originally started training at the club for a few short weeks before packing it in as he found the training was too tough.Shortly afterwards though, as his friends started to come through the doors, he made his way back and in a short time, he found he had a natural talent for the sport.He started competing in the many junior events up and down the country and after winning a few fights here and there, he had bitten the bug and a new fighting star was starting to emerge.The big issue with Paul however, was that he could quite easily pile on a few pounds if he wasn’t careful and when he was around twenty years old or so, he went off the rails a little and ballooned up to almost eighty seven kilos.Thankfully, his inner self had a long chat in a mirror and he made a conscious decision to get back in shape.Being a fighter, he asked his coach Pete Foley to set up some fights  to give him an incentive to make weight and that he did.Paul has the distinction of being the first person in this country to win  national titles in  four different disciplines in the sport of kickboxing with the highest weight title being at -69.5kg – a fair drop from his previous 87kg when he went astray.He went on to win two bronze medals at the Unified World championships in Italy in 2014 and in Spain in 2015 at -63.5kg and is the current and defending European Super Lightweight K-1 champion.His World title attempt on Saturday night will be at -60kg and he is in incredible shape for the fight and he will headline a 20 fight card on the night.This young man has beaten all the odds and hopefully he’ll be on top of the World in less than a week and it would be great if once again the people of Galway would come along and get behind one of their own as he reaches for the stars.Paul’s fight is being kindly sponsored by City And County Bouncy Castles and Trendz Barbers Shop.Tickets for the fight can be purchased from the Black Dragon Gym, any of the fighters on the card or a limited few at the door on the night.print WhatsApp Facebook Twitter Email The Galway Black Dragon Kickboxing Club will mark its 20th year in existence this March and will celebrate with a big International fight night in the citys fabulous Clayton Hotel this coming Saturday, March 19. The club first opened its doors on March 27, 1996 when Pete Foley introduced the sport to the city of the tribes and with some thirty seven adults showing up to St Patrick’s school hall in Lombard Street on the first night, Foley knew there was great interest from the off.last_img read more
