Powered by Firework Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says Paul Pogba has got what it takes to become Manchester United’s captain in the future.Advertisement The Frenchman has revitalised himself under the Norwegian manager’s tutelage, scoring five goals and providing four assists following the Manchester United legend’s return to Old Trafford.After a heated confrontation with former manager Jose Mourinho, Pogba was stripped of the vice-captaincy.Advertisement Solskjaer, however, believes that the 2018 World Cup winner possesses leadership qualities and could become the captain of the Red Devils one day.Advertisement “Definitely, yeah, because I know the boy from before, and he is a leader,” said Solskjaer.“He’s a character, he influences people, and you’ve seen the videos from France, and he cares, and he really wants to be successful.“He knows he can’t do it by himself, it’s a team game, and he’s a character that brings so many good things with him when he’s enjoying himself, I have to say.“You see the personality. He’d love playing football, he’s a larger-than-life character, that’s just the way he is.“When the performances come as well, that marries together as a good leader and you see what it meant to him winning the World Cup in what France broadcast.“So, for me, yes, he’s captain material.” Advertisementlast_img read more

Black schools hope Stephen Curry’s gift sparks a golf resurgence

first_imgView comments Dutch YouTube star Nikkie de Jager says she is transgender More than half of the collegiate black golfers compete at HBCUs, but those programs are constantly struggling for survival. Only about a quarter of the more than 100 HBCUs have golf teams, said Craig Bowen, president and founder of the Black College Golf Coaches’ Association.Howard abandoned its golf program in the 1970s before Curry, a two-time NBA MVP who has won three championships with the Golden State Warriors, intervened last week. He donated some of his fortune toward a six-year deal to help the school relaunch its men’s and women’s teams for the 2020-21 academic year.Jackson State University in Mississippi made history in 2007 by becoming the first HBCU to compete in the NCAA Division I golf tournament. But the university suspended its men and women’s golf teams a decade later when it faced a budget crisis.Some HBCUs struggle to find black golfers and end up fielding teams with white players, and the programs are among the first to get targeted during budget crunches.“It’s not football or basketball generating dollars, and they don’t want to go out and spend money and actually have to go out and raise money for golf,” said Bowen, who used to coach golf at Chicago State and Benedict College in South Carolina, which are both HBCUs.ADVERTISEMENT Many believed that Woods’ barrier-shattering ascent that started with his historic 1997 win at the Masters — at a club that once banned black golfers — would usher in a new generation of African American players on the PGA Tour.But those projections didn’t materialize, in part because of the deep challenges that young African Americans still face when it comes to taking up a sport that requires considerable expense and travel to play at a high level.“A lot of my golf organizations and clubs are really being challenged in attracting young people,” said Debert Cook, publisher of the African American Golfer’s Digest.Curry, who has long been known as a passionate golfer, made the announcement about his Howard donation at Langston Golf Course, one of the few U.S. golf courses to allow African Americans when it opened in 1939. The course was home to the Royal Golf Club and the Wake Robin Golf Club, the nation’s first for African American men and women.African Americans made steady progress in golf after Langston Golf Course was built, culminating with Woods’ domination of the sport in the early 2000s.In 1964, Althea Gibson, a tennis pioneer who also played golf professionally, became the first black woman to play in the LPGA Tour. And Charlie Sifford joined the PGA Tour in 1961 after years of the organization’s whites-only clause that kept out golfers of color.Andrews said young golfers still have to fight the perception that it’s “a white man’s” sport. He hopes that a resurgence of HBCU golf will help bring more African American youth into the sport.Golf is a great way to teach discipline and perseverance, he said, as well as an avenue into the corporate world for students who may not otherwise have a way in.“We use golf, but the real teaching is about life,” Andrews said. 3 young volunteers die in car crash after giving aid to Taal evacuees BREAKING: DOJ indicts ex-PNP chief Albayalde for graft “This is a great sport, and we have too much tradition as a people trying to get into the sport to lose it now,” Andrews said.Curry’s gift to Howard in Washington is bringing new attention to golf at historically black colleges and universities and spotlighting the harsh budget constraints that they face in keeping their programs alive.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSAllen Durham chews out Meralco: Everybody played like sh*tSPORTSGolden State Warriors sign Lee to multiyear contract, bring back ChrissSPORTSThirdy Ravena gets‍‍‍ offers from Asia, Australian ball clubsBlack colleges and universities are a crucial pipeline to increasing diversity in golf at a time when few African Americans are playing the sport at the college and professional levels.Only about 300 of the NCAA’s more than 10,000 college golfers are black, according to association data. And just three African American golfers are on the PGA Tour: Tiger Woods, Harold Varner III and Cameron Champ.

Slow down, and remember those killed in vehicle crashes

first_img“This day of remembrance is a time to reflect on the hundreds of lives that are lost and thousands who are injured in crashes throughout our province every year,” says Mary Polak, Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure. “Many of these crashes, and the devastating impact they have on families, are completely preventable so please slow down and drive carefully.” ICBC is taking this week to remind drivers to slow down, and adjust their driving to the road conditions. In B.C., speeding is the leading cause of car crash fatalities, with an average of 27 people killed in our region each year. Another average of 24 crashes a month resulting in injuries or death in our area are due to people driving too fast for the conditions. That’s especially an issue in the north, where for several months of the year roads are in winter condition, and in December that number doubles to 50. “In honour of those who have lost their lives on our roads, and their loved ones, we’re urging drivers to slow down and give themselves extra time so they get home to their families safely,” said John Dickinson, ICBC Director of Road Safety. “Speeding is the leading cause of car crash fatalities in B.C. and when combined with poor weather conditions, it dramatically increases your risk of crashing.”- Advertisement –last_img read more

This will help save water stored in reservoirs and avoid further shortages throughout the county .With the experience from the widespread disruption last winter we are highlighting the following areas in particular where the public can help eliminate wastage of the public water supply:Running taps – please avoid leaving taps running. This is counter productive and will run down available water in storageBurst mains / leakage – any suspected leaks on watermains or wastage should be reported to the County Council at your local public services centre. Vacant properties – please continue to check vacant properties where internal plumbing may be damaged by freezing conditions. Ideally the water supply to vacant buildings should be turned off and systems drained of all water, e.g. where members of the public who are going on holiday during the coming months, we would recommend that they turn off the water supply to their premises and drain all water out of the system before leaving the property.Farming Community – we ask that you check all field connections and turn off leaking drinking troughs. This has proven to be a serious problem in rural areas in recent years. We also ask for your assistance in checking for burst pipes in farm buildings and burst hoses laying over ground. Essentially anywhere on the farm that water may be lostCaravan Parks – another area that is often remote where plumbing may be exposed and water losses can be slow to appear, we appeal to all caravan park owners to turn off the water supply to eliminate wastage.Once again the co-operation of every community is required if we are to avert widespread shortages in water supplies.
