Jamaica’s Asafa Powell has been nominated for the 2007 Laureus World Sportsman of the Year Award.

Posted by Dresonic on February 28, 2007


After winning the 100m gold medal in the Commonwealth Games in Melbourne last March, he twice equalled his own World Record of 9.77 seconds at Gateshead in June and Zurich in August, and won at each of the six Golden League meetings during the summer.

During the 2006 season, he ran under 10 seconds for the 100 metres a record 12 times and remained unbeaten in all 16 finals he contested.

In total, Powell has run under 10 seconds 25 times in his career. In November he was named 2006 IAAF Athlete of the Year.

Laureus Academy member and track legend, Michael Johnson, said: “Asafa Powell has become the dominant force in men’s sprinting over the last 12 months.

“You can tell he feels he has something to prove. He has run a world record 9.77 seconds three times now and you just know there is more to come,” Johnson was quoted as saying in a Laureus release.

Stayed honest

“I also like the way he has stayed honest to his roots and spends a great deal of time in Jamaica. That will help to encourage young athletes there.”

Other nominees in the Laureus World Sportsman of the Year category are Formula One World Champion Fernando Alonso, Italian World Cup captain Fabio Cannavaro, Swiss tennis star Roger Federer, Germany’s Formula One legend Michael Schumacher and the world’s No.1 golfer, Tiger Woods.

A record number of leading sports journalists from around the world have voted this year to select the nominees. When the ballot closed on January 31, a total of 1,068 members of the Laureus World Sports Awards Media Selection Panel from 128 countries had cast their votes.

The winners of the Laureus World Sports Awards, as voted for by the members of the Laureus World Sports Academy, will be announced during a televised awards ceremony staged at Palau Sant Jordi, Barcelona, on the evening of Monday, April 2.

Government of Jamaica promises more school spaces……Right!!!

Posted by Dresonic on February 28, 2007


Henry-Wilson

The Government is proposing to provide 16,990 school spaces by the end of the year with 3,500 of these to be created for Grade Six Achievement Test (GSAT) students in Region Six by September.

Maxine Henry-Wilson, Minister of Education, Youth and Culture made the announcement yesterday while tabling a ministry paper, containing the recommendations of a committee appointed to examine the delay in the publication of last year’s GSAT results, in the House of Representatives.

Problems finding spaces

The ministry had claimed that one of the reasons for the delay in the publication of the GSAT results was because it was having problems in finding spaces for approximately 2,000 students in Region Six, which include the parishes of St. Catherine and Clarendon. Read the rest of this entry »

Rioting forces shutdown of hotel project

Posted by Dresonic on February 28, 2007

Worker shot and injured; offices, motor vehicles destroyed

LUCEA, Hanover – Work on the US$150-million Fiesta Hotel development at Point, near Lucea, has been suspended indefinitely, following a violent clash between construction workers, the police and security guards.

One construction worker was shot and injured, while fire was set to three offices and several motor vehicles belonging to the Spanish hotel chain.

The injured worker, Alvan Campbell, 54, of Prosper in the parish, was admitted to the Cornwall Regional Hospital and was last night said to be in stable condition.

Last night, Prime Minister Portia Simpson Miller, in a statement, called for a full investigation into the disturbance, and expressed sympathy to the injured worker.

Simpson Miller, according to Jamaica House, instructed her minister of development, Donald Buchanan, to convene an urgent meeting of the parties involved to try and arrive at an early resolution.

20060226t220000-0500_99579_obs_records_tumble_at_gibson_relays_1.jpg

Twelve records were accounted for at the 30th renewal of the Gibson Relays at the National Stadium on Saturday. The meet, which was fairly attended, had patrons on the edge at times, especially when the fastest man went down on the track and anchored his MVP sprint relay team to victory in a new time of 39.18 seconds, while the female team was in spanking form clocking 43.60 for their sprint relay.

Kingston College accounted for three records – class one 400m relay and class three in new times of 40.38 and 44.04 respectively, and the class three boys erased the 4×200 record in the heats clocking 1 minute 31.55 and returned to capture the final in 1 minute 33.76.

St Jago High boys had three victories with one in record time – class two 4x100m relay in 41.66. They also won the class four in 47.14 and the class two 4×200 in 1 minute 28.93. Holmwood girls accounted for two – in the 1600m relay in 3 minutes 35.68 and the 4×800 in 8 minutes 48.96.

Their boys took the equivalents in 3 minutes 13.48 and 7 minutes 45.06 respectively. Manchester High class three girls accounted for the only school girl sprint relay record in 46.00, and they also won class 4 in 49.10.

Kingston College won the class four 4×200 in 1 minute 37.90, class three in 1 minute 33.76, and St Jago class two in 1 minute 28.93 and Camperdown claiming class 1 in one minute 24.93. Read the rest of this entry »

Barcelona 1-2 Liverpool: Bad boys on target

Posted by Dresonic on February 22, 2007

BARCELONA, February 21 (Champions League) – Craig Bellamy and John Arne Riise both got on the scoresheet as Liverpool put a traumatic week behind them to claim a stunning Champions League victory over Barcelona at the Nou Camp.

Ronaldinho and Barcelona’s other stars failed to shine.

Bellamy and Riise were allegedly the two players involved in last week’s training ground fracas in Portugal – and tonight’s response from the pair will have delighted coach Rafael Benitez and the mass of travelling Liverpool fans.

In the battle between the last two winners of the competition, 2005 champions Liverpool tonight became only the second English team to beat Barcelona at the Nou Camp.The only previous side to win here was the 1975-76 Liverpool team, which downed Barca 1-0 in the UEFA Cup semi-finals before going on to win the final.Liverpool, who had not lost in three previous visits to the Nou Camp, made a confident start, and they should possibly have taken the lead after creating the first incisive move of the match in the fourth minute.However, Riise, having broken the offside trap to latch onto Steven Gerrard’s pass, could not find Bellamy in the middle, when a decent pass would surely have led to the Welshman putting Liverpool ahead.After a quiet start, the home side and their fans were finally woken up when Ronaldinho went sprawling in the box, only for the referee to wave play on.Deco then tried his luck before Juliano Belletti blazed high and wide, before Barca took the lead in the 14th minute when Gianluca Zambrotta crossed to the far post where the diminutive Deco headed into the corner of the net.Saviola had a chance to make it 2-0 just minutes later after skipping past Jamie Carragher, but the Argentinian’s left-footed Read the rest of this entry »

Ronaldinho: ‘We must be United at Anfield’

Posted by Dresonic on February 22, 2007

If you were to make a judgement based solely on the headlines of the past week, it would be easy to think Liverpool are about to step into the scene of a gruesome car wreck at the Nou Camp.

Ronaldinho: Toeing the party line as Barcelona travel to Liverpool.

Rumblings of boardroom unrest and public revolt from star players has given the impression that Barcelona are on the brink of meltdown as they prepare to continue the defence of their Champions League crown by hosting the 2005 European champions on Wednesday night.

However, reports of Barcelona’s demise are greatly exaggerated and just in case Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez needed a tonic to focus his mind as his team prepare to climb the tallest mountain of them all, the return to form of a certain Ronaldinho should have done just that. If 2004 and 2005 were glorious years in the life of the world’s greatest footballer, then 2006 was arguably his most traumatic yet and even though he can look back on the year in the knowledge that he won the Champions League and Spanish title, the buck-toothed one knows he could and maybe should have achieved so much more. Whether he cracked under the pressure in World Cup year or simply ran out of inspiration to produce his magic is a question not even the man himself can answer, but he accepts the time has come for him to answer his critics and silence those in the Nou Camp crowd who had the audacity to jeer him just a couple of weeks ago. Instead of throwing the sort of childish tantrum that has got Samuel Eto’o in trouble over the last week, Ronaldinho insists he is ready to answer his critics in Spain and defy those who have turned their back on him. ‘I’ve always said I’m very happy with the life I have at this club and in this city, so nothing has changed,’ he begins. ‘The club have Read the rest of this entry »

Britain’s Iraq war bombshell

Posted by Dresonic on February 22, 2007

tb_2202.jpgA MOVE by Britain to begin pulling troops out of Iraq has increased the heat on the Bush Administration and the Howard Government as they grapple with pressures at home to find ways out of the Iraq war.

British Prime Minister Tony Blair, Washington’s most important ally in Iraq, late last night announced a decision to bring home 1600 of his country’s troops within months, and to further reduce its presence later in the year.

In an address to the House of Commons, Mr Blair also appeared to leave open the possibility of a full withdrawal of British forces from Iraq next year, saying its presence would continue into 2008 only “for as long as we are wanted and have a job to do”. Read the rest of this entry »

Reggae Boyz lift Cup

Posted by Dresonic on February 22, 2007

HONG KONG (AFP) – Jamaica’s Olympic team beat their Chinese counterparts 5-4 on penalties to lift the Lunar New Year Cup after a goalless 120 minutes in the final yesterday.

lg_whitmore_all.jpg

Goalkeeper Allien Whittaker was the hero, saving two spot-kicks as former China coach Bora Milutinovic masterminded another surprise victory in the international friendly tournament.

Milutinovic became the first coach to win the tournament for a second time, having been successful with Nigeria in 1998.
The 62-year-old Serbian, who has taken Mexico, United States, Costa Rica and Nigeria to the second round of the World Cup, was delighted with the under-23 team’s success.
“I’m so happy for the Jamaican team. The whole of Jamaica can celebrate this win,” he said.

“The Jamaicans really tried their best and I am so happy for many of the players who have never played abroad before. It was important to win this tournament.”

In a lacklustre final which produced few bright moments, China had the better game and looked more dangerous in attack, but failed to find the back of the net against a stubborn Jamaican defence.

Jamaica started the penalty shootout poorly when Nicholy Finlayson missed his effort, but his team-mates buried their next five kicks.

China’s Dai Qinhua and Wan Houliang both had their spot-kicks saved by Whittaker before Donovan Davis tapped in to start the Jamaican celebrations.

China coach Ratomir Dujkovic was disappointed but hoped his team, vilified over the notorious brawl which overshadowed a visit to England this month, will have more luck at next year’s Beijing Olympics.

“We have to get this behind us and look forward to the future. Hopefully we will get more luck. Luck played a major part tonight,” said Dujkovic, who is also a Serb. Read the rest of this entry »

Michael Jackson sued by dead woman’s family

Posted by Dresonic on February 22, 2007

jackson.jpg A dead woman’s family is suing Michael Jackson over claims that Manuela Gomez Ruiz, 73, a seriously ill hospital patient, her death is being attributed to the hospital’s making room for the pop star.

The singer was admitted to California’s Marian Medical Centre with flu symptoms two years ago, reports MSNBC.

Ruiz, 73, had suffered a heart attack and was on life support, she was moved from her two-bed trauma unit so the star could be accomodated, her relatives are alleging.

Their lawsuit against Jackson and the hospital claims an abuse of celebrity status and seeks unspecified damages.

The family claims that she was suddenly moved to make way for Jackson on February 15, 2005.  Ruiz then suffered a second heart attack and died later that day, according to MSNBC.

The singer’s hospital admission caused a cancellation of a court hearing over his child molestation trial.

The medical center dismissed the lawsuit as “another frivolous claim to generate publicity”.

Rattling the Comic Book Cage

Posted by Dresonic on February 22, 2007

Pointing out that Ghost Rider is not very good seems like a fool’s exercise, especially now. After all, it’s easy to decry the messenger, especially when a movie’s Presidents’ Day weekend release generates a record-setting gross of $51.5 million. Still, the subgenre of comic book adaptations needn’t automatically lend itself to critical derision, as the warm critical embrace of the Spider-Man films, Christopher Nolan’s Batman reboot or even the more mixed but passionate critics’ defenses of graphic novel flicks like V For Vendetta and Sin City fittingly demonstrate. This is all to say that I went into the film with an open mind this weekend, alongside a chattering and primed general audience. I genuinely love me some Nicolas Cage – even in tony dreck – and though I was lukewarm on Daredevil, writer-director Mark Steven Johnson’s previous film, I’d heard good things about the extended cut he was allowed to release on DVD, and how that fleshed out some of the story points in interesting fashion.

 
Columbia Pictures Photo
Originally slated for Summer of ’06

A surprise and disappointment then, to wade through Ghost Rider, a glossy, big-budget affair that in almost every significant way behind the camera – and in more than a few ways in front of it – feels like both a fatally compromised and hopelessly amateurish production. This is the type of film for which the actors involved carefully describe it in press junkets and interviews as “a lot of fun” rather than good; they talk about how much they enjoyed making it instead of how they’re proud of it. The story centers on young circus stuntman Johnny Blaze, who as a teenager makes a deal with Mephistopheles (Peter Fonda) in order to cure his father of cancer. Because he’s such a wily trickster, the devil makes momentarily good on his promise, only to then promptly turn around and kill the old man in a fiery (slow-motion, naturally) accident. Lacking the wherewithal or ability to summon Johnny Cochran to argue semantics, Blaze resigns himself to the notion that the devil will at some point come a-callin’ with a favor, something the devil drives home by touching Blaze, which gives him, seemingly, really bad indigestion. Cut to several years later. All grown up, Blaze (now Cage) has gone on to achieve celebrity as a death-defying motorcycle showman. No one knows about his curse-in-waiting, least of all reporter Roxanne Simpson (Eva Mendes), the woman that teenaged Johnny spurned in theory to protect. All that changes when the devil calls in his chit and Johnny morphs into a flaming-skulled bounty hunter of rogue demons.

Columbia Pictures Photo
No chemistry whatsoever

His quarry: the devil’s power-hungry son, Blackheart (Wes Bentley), who’s hell-bent (ha!) on collecting a contract of mythic proportions that will apparently allow him to supplant his father. Aiding Blaze and providing the audience with chunky passages of grizzled exposition is the mysterious Caretaker (Sam Elliott, doing an impression of himself doing an impression of Kris Kristofferson). Set in Texas but shot in Australia, Ghost Rider feels far more anonymous than dustily iconic. Courtesy of its state-of-the-art flaming skull effects – which leave behind the now-laughable melting faces of Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom – the movie provides a few fleeting moments of goofball entertainment, though they’re far between and none can really be charitably described as satisfyingly cathartic or, for the most part, even intentional. Why does Mephistopheles not take a more proactive role in the power struggle with his son? Or why has the devil not used his highly skilled minion to procure this important contract – given its power via buy-in-bulk souls – in the intervening years? And just prior to the final showdown, why does the Caretaker spring to life, only to join Blaze for a ride across the desert and then tell him that’s as far as he can go, that that’s all he can do? Who knows, really. In Ghost Rider, massive story incongruities are merely shrugged off, over and over.

Columbia Pictures Photo
Co-star Wes Bentley

In their stead, Cage gives another loose-limbed, zonked-out hero performance, amusingly channeling a smidgen of Elvis in a few scenes. To his great credit, he knows what kind of movie he’s in, and certainly enlivens almost every scene he graces, including an interrogation in which he blithely calls out the “good cop-bad cop” of the duo questioning him. The problem is, even though he’s the lead, and thus in most of the movie, almost every scene around him feels saggy and irrelevant. And if Cage is fun to watch, his chemistry with Mendes is nonexistent. It doesn’t help, certainly, that the woefully under-sketched Roxanne isn’t an intrepid reporter out for a scoop, she just blandly exists, popping up whenever Blaze needs to feel something or be goaded into some sort of action. Lest one mistake this all merely for buzz-kill critical pooh-poohing, it should be noted that the fan-boy bathroom chatter after the screening trended at least 3:1 against the movie, roughly in line with the movie’s aggregate Rotten Tomatoes score. “Jesus…” one goateed chap sporting a Green Lantern T-shirt said to his friend. “Well, what did you expect, really?” came the reply. They seemed to object most to Ghost Rider’s penchant for hammy obviousness, as evidenced by something like a scene early in the movie, when Mephistopheles first propositions Blaze. “What, do you run a show?” Blaze asks, perfectly setting the devil up for the response, “The greatest show on Earth.” OK, fine. On the nose, certainly, but winkingly in step with its demographic. Johnson’s Ghost Rider, though, doesn’t stop there. He holds on Fonda’s leering grin for a long beat, then inserts some overtly sinister lightning and a clap of thunder, and then, ladling on the blatancy like a cheap cologne, cuts to a close-up of the devil’s skull cane. Thanks, we get it. Now can we have some of that $51.5 million back?

Brandy Courts More Trouble

Posted by Dresonic on February 22, 2007

 

514620_brandy_200×200.jpgBrandy is facing more legal gridlock over her fatal freeway crash.

A second wrongful-death lawsuit has been filed against the Grammy-winning entertainer over the Dec. 30 car crash that resulted in the death of Awatef Aboudihaj, 38, and injuries to her two sons.

The most recent suit was filed on behalf of the Mrwan Mohamed, 14, and Kareem Mohamed, 10, who received injuries that their attorney, Paul N. Phillips, says will cause some permanent disability.

The suit, filed Feb. 8 in Los Angeles Superior Court, claims that Brandy (listed by her legal name of Brandy Norwood in the complaint) was driving her sport utility vehicle “recklessly and carelessly” when she struck Aboudihaj’s Honda on the 405 Freeway in Los Angeles and that the singer-actor was directly responsible for the crash.

(According to a report from the California Highway Patrol, Brandy smashed into a car in front of her when highway traffic slowed, resulting in a chain reaction that pushed Aboudihaj’s Honda into oncoming traffic.)

The lawsuit claims the children are facing a lifetime of emotional strife over losing their mother.

Court papers say that “as a direct and proximate result of Decedent’s passing, Plaintiffs forever lost the comfort, society, love, affection, advice, training, society, companionship, care and pecuniary and other support of their mother.”

Phillips requested that damages be determined by the court.

There was no immediate comment from Brandy’s camp. But her publicist, Allan Meyer, did release a statement after Aboudihaj’s Morocco-based parents filed their own $50 million wrongful-death action Jan. 30. Read the rest of this entry »

Billy Bob Thornton Interview, The Astronaut Farmer

Posted by Dresonic on February 22, 2007

poster_astronautfarmerp2.jpg

Q: So when I interviewed you for the School for Scoundrels the best quote I got from you was that they’re releasing the Billy Bob Thornton assh*le collection on DVD, so was it a refreshing change for you to go back to what you’ve done in the past and play somebody who was less assh*le like?

Billy Bob: Yeah, the fact of the matter is that I’d done two or three of those comedies in a row since Bad Santa and it was fun and I enjoyed it but I think that’s plenty. I have the one coming out that I’ve made already called Mr. Woodcock and I think that’s going to be probably it for at least a few years, you know, because you want to go and do other things. And I knew that I was going to do a drama next but I figured it was going to be more like A Simple Plan or Sling Blade or something like that. I didn’t realize that I was going to get this gem sat in my lap and it’s the type of movie that I’ve wanted to do really since I was young. I think every actor wants to have their, like for me it’s Gary Cooper, Jimmy Stewart or whatever and this was that movie for me. It was my Mr. Smith Goes to WashingtonRead the rest of this entry »

Marijuana Kills Cancer… hello FBI, DEA, KING FISH!

Posted by Dresonic on February 11, 2007

titlephoto.jpgThe largest study of its kind has unexpectedly concluded that smoking marijuana, even regularly and heavily, does not lead to lung cancer.

The new findings “were against our expectations,” said Dr. Donald Tashkin, a UCLA pulmonologist who has studied marijuana for 30 years.

“We hypothesized that there would be a positive association between marijuana use and lung cancer and that the association would be more positive with heavier use,” he said. “What we found instead was no association at all, and even a suggestion of some protective effect.”

Federal health and drug enforcement officials have widely used Tashkin’s previous work on marijuana to make the case that the drug is dangerous. Tashkin said that while he still believes marijuana is potentially harmful, its cancer-causing effects appear to be of less concern than previously thought.

Earlier work established that marijuana does contain cancer-causing chemicals as potentially harmful as those in tobacco, he said. However, marijuana also contains the chemical THC, which he said may kill aging cells and keep them from becoming cancerous. Read the rest of this entry »
