Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, and Uruguay Compete in Equestrian

first_imgBy Dialogo July 23, 2011 The perfect harmony of the rider or rider with the animal – which takes at least two years to develop – is indispensable in forming a winning combination in the jumping category in the Equestrian event. But at these jumping events of the 5th Military World Games, riders from 12 countries had at most 40 minutes to establish that relationship. To compete in the four jump events the four obstacle courses of 1.20m on Friday (July 22) and Saturday, each team had three horses designated to them by lottery system. In total, the organization rented 41 animals. The athletes were treated to a short “test drive” of 20 minutes the day before the initial event, but only with their first horse. For the following races they only had 20 minutes total to familiarize themselves with the horse. “This is a test that lets us know who the best rider is, through his own ability, and without much help from the horse,” explained Captain Bruno Burity, who is one of the organizers of the Equestrian competition at Rio 2011. With a strong presence from South America – Argentina, Uruguay, Chile, Brazil, Colombia and Ecuador – the test will be the team jumping category and individual medals. On Sunday 24, the four riders with the best score during the four team categories will compete. The final race may very well have riders from same country competing for gold. Jumping with a horse you’re not familiar with is a challenge for even the most experienced riders such as the case with Major Alfonso Anguita from Chile, who has accumulated medals in military riding competitions for over 29 years. “I expected more from my horse. He did not respect the jumps,” Anguita said. The 20 minutes of riding at Koltaire Des Puys the day before for was all the riding Lt. Fernando Romero of Ecuador needed to realize that there was something different with his horse during the warm-ups on July 22. “He was not the same like he was the previous day so he didn’t respond well” said Romero. The exchange of reigns delayed Romero by 20 minutes but it was crucial to the performance. It was also a life insurance policy,” joked Romero.last_img read more

(Photo: Costa Rican Ministry of Public Security)On July 19, the Costa Rican Ministry of Public Security reported that the Costa Rican Coast Guard had received an alert from the Colombian Navy, and with the support of U.S. aircraft detected a suspicious vessel in the Caribbean Sea. When the criminals noticed the presence of the security forces, they jettisoned the cargo and fled, attempting to reach the Panamanian border. Authorities arrested the four crew members and seized 2,093 kg of cocaine, the Ministry said.“It is worth highlighting the cooperation with the United States and its reconnaissance aircraft, the ongoing Colombian intelligence, and also the excellent relationship we have with Panama,” Martín Arias, director of the Costa Rican Coast Guard, told the press.Costa Rican Minister of Public Security Michael Soto told the press that they had received an alert from Colombian authorities on July 18, warning about a speedboat carrying drugs in the Caribbean Sea, bound for Costa Rica. Two Costa Rican Coast Guard intercepting speedboats, with U.S. air support, chased the suspicious vessel in open waters. Coast Guard units intercepted the speedboat carrying 1,274 kg of cocaine and four people on board, the Ministry reported.“Narcotrafficking works regionally, from the time [the drug] is shipped until it arrives for consumption. They will always have collaborators, very well-financed rings for their operations. Countries are like that too. We have naval, air, land forces […] for Costa Rica, a Public Force, border police, coastguards, narcotics officers,” Arias added.last_img read more

Volunteers build ‘toxic-free’ home for local woman battling serious disease

first_imgENDICOTT (WBNG) – The community is going the extra mile for a local woman battling a serious illness. “It’s a clean house so it’s got to be scent free. There’s no perfumes, you can’t have food in the house. Stuff like that,” said Weston. The North Atlantic State Regional Council of Carpenters are just some of the volunteers who have been lending a hand with the project. “We’ve had about 30 members come down, we’ve had a couple come down from the Oswego area about two hours away and the rest of our members are from the Binghamton and Elmira area,” said John Weston, a council representative. With the project now a couple of months away from completion, Dorian’s says he and his wife are overwhelmed with gratitude. “It was just life altering and it’s something that you don’t prepare for,” said Leah’s husband, Dorian. Leah Jalbert has been battling Mast Cell Activation for six years, a condition where germs, smells and even air can effect her health. Dorian says even during completion, the toxic-free home will still have to be tested by professionals to make sure Leah can live inside safely.center_img Leah’s story has touches thousands of people across the country. So much so, that many are dedicating time and hard work to build a “toxic-free” home for her. Volunteers have had to use special paints and materials to make the structure and take extra precautions to keep it “toxic-free,” including wearing Tyvex suits and masks. “She’s definitely had many tears of pain and tears of joy. It’s heartfelt,” said Dorian. “This is one of the greatest volunteer projects that I have ever done in my life and it just means a lot to help this local family and step up and help them out,” said Weston. “This is the first true step to dealing with that is to stop the exposures so her body can kind of calm down and get a nice baseline so that they can start doing treatments to try to repair her immune system,” said Dorian.

5 Tips to Stay Closer if He’s Withdrawing.

first_imgBy Lynn Zavaro, author of The Game of You™Do you get a sense your man may be withdrawing from you? Do you wonder why he doesn’t call you back or is always out of the house? Have you had a conversation recently and noticed he crossed the leg closest to you and/or covered his arm across his body? (This is a basic body language message that he may want to leave the room or wants the conversation to be over.) Do you want to talk to him about something but he doesn’t seem to want to engage in a dialogue? Sometimes women like to talk about their feelings and have their man respond in the way that makes them feel most secure. Yet, sometimes there is opportunity to accept that what we may want is not necessarily what our man wants. It never works to force someone who doesn’t want to talk to talk or try to get them to come out of their shell if they don’t want to or aren’t ready to.Here are 5 tips to bring your man closer, create a safer space for him to communicate, and increase his desire to open up to you:1) Allow time and space. When a man withdraws most likely what he is asking for is time and space. Sometimes men just need some extra room to process their thoughts and feelings on their own in their own time.It is possible your man may not want to hurt your feelings, so he is choosing to keep his thoughts and/or feelings inside or he may not trust that you will understand his needs. In an effort to create intimacy we may cling or push, giving us the opposite result we want. Respecting and honoring a man’s need for time and space can support greater closeness. 2) Let your man know you’d like to talk about something and schedule a time with him in the near future. Rather than insisting on talking about your feelings now, ask your man what is a good time for him to come together to talk. This will give him time to think about things for himself so that he can come to you more prepared. If this is difficult for you, then you may also need some time and space to look at your own feelings with awareness.If he avoids the “meeting” after scheduling it with you, this may be a sign he is not interested in addressing it and/or he may have issues with committing fully to the relationship. This is good for you to know in order to look more closely to whether or not this relationship is supportive for you. 3) Don’t flood him. When you do speak with your man, be careful not to flood him with your feelings or thoughts. Keep it simple and go straight to the point. If you see him shutting down the conversation become aware if you are “spilling” or “dumping” your feelings on him. Choose to have a more stable emotional container or simply stop to take the time to process your feelings and thoughts on your own for yourself first.4) Be more interested in how he feels about the situation rather than being heard. Begin by asking open-ended questions rather than telling him how you think he is acting or even how you feel. Investigate how he views the situation before interrupting, giving him your own two cents, or telling him how you see it.Even if his view is not the same of yours, what’s most important is that you understand his point of view first without making it about you. In other words, try not to be defensive and remain open to discover how he views the situation first. This will make it easier on him (and in the long run on you) because he will feel safer to express himself and will want to open to you more. 5) Let him know you are taking care of your own feelings for yourself. Typically, women like to talk about their feelings and men like to solve them.So, just wanting to talk about your feelings without an intention to show him how you’re resolving them on your own may make him feel helpless. If he truly cares about you, he doesn’t want to see you in pain. His first instinct is to protect you. But if you bombard him with your feelings he may feel like there is nothing he can do to help and may want to withdraw instead.Speak about your feelings, go to the core of it, but don’t linger on them or make it a big production. Convey what you would like to express to him but make sure you also express how you are willing to take responsibility for what you feel so that he knows he doesn’t t have to take care of your feelings for you. 53 Views   no discussions Share Share Tweet Sharing is caring!

Many times a man’s withdrawing has nothing to do with you so it’s important not to take it personally. Yet, you may have a part in it, so be willing to look into this. How might you be participating in this dynamic or influencing this result?

GCB National Secondary School cricket: Gopilall, Sinclair spin Lower Corentyne to semifinal

first_imgLOWER Corentyne Secondary School will meet the defending champions Chase Academy in second semifinal of the Inter-Secondary School phase next Thursday after they whipped No.8 Secondary School by 96 runs in the Berbice Zone final played at the Albion Sports Complex yesterday.Chasing 137 for victory, the West Coast Berbice batsmen failed to show any sort of commitment with the bat, and were skittled out for 39 in 15.2 overs.From the outset the spinners completely confounded the visitors’ batsmen, with off-spinners Vijay Gopilall and Junior Sinclair utilising whatever turn was made available on the pitch to finish with figures of 4-10 and 3-11 respectively.Captions:Off-spinners Vijay Gopilall (right) and Junior Sinclair were the main destroyers in Lower Corentyne Secondary School 96-run win.The victorious Lower Corentyne Secondary School will now face defending champions Chase Academy in semifinal two on Thursday at the same venue.Fellow spinners Joshua Wilson and Kristoff Williams claimed a wicket apiece for the winners.Earlier, the game was reduced to 25 overs aside after early morning showers delayed the start of play by three hours. Lower Corentyne, inserted to bat first in overcast conditions, lost Sinclair (1) in the innings’ first over, caught at the wicket off Deonauth Persaud (1-17).Thereafter the West Coast Berbice team allowed a steady stream of runs, with fellow opener Davendra Sumra and Kevlon Anderson rebuilding strongly.The right-handed pair capitalised on the poor bowling and sloppy fielding, and were allowed to score freely at both ends of the wicket until leg-spinner Daniel Moses ended the 67-run partnership. He had Anderson caught at long-on boundary for 31.Haresh Fernandes joined Sumra, and added 27 runs for the third-wicket before they suffer a middle-order collapse, losing three wickets for six runs.Off-spinner Irshad Ally claimed the wickets of Fernandes (5) and Rico Ramsammy (6), in the 18th over while left-arm spinner Nigel Deodat (1-15) removed Sumra for a composed 39.Joshua Wilson, who remained unbeaten on 15, and Justin Gobin (10) then joined forces and added 22 runs at the back end of the innings.Kristoff Williams (0) was the other batsman dismissed off Ally, who finished with figures of 3-21.The first semi-final is billed for today between West Demerara Secondary and Anna Regina Multilateral School at the Imam Bacchus ground.last_img read more
