Briggs inks two-year deal with Danish Superliga Club Vejle Boldklub FC

first_imgBy Rawle ToneyGUYANA’S Matthew Briggs inked a two-year deal with one of Denmark’s most successful clubs, Vejle Boldklub FC.The move will see Briggs, who up to last season, held the record for being the youngest player to ever feature in the English Premier League with Fulham FC, competing in the Danish Superliga, the top pro-league in Denmark.Briggs, 29, played for England at the U-16, U-17, U-19, U-20 and U-21 levels and made his debut for Guyana in 2015. He has since been a solid part of the Golden Jaguars’ squad.This is not the defender’s first time in Denmark, having played for the Copenhagen-based HB Køge last season.In an interview on the team’s website, Manager Jacob Krüger said he was impressed with Briggs during his stint with HB Køge.“Briggs,”, Krüger added, “has the image of a defender who has good skills with the ball and has good conditions, physically, which he has substantiated during the last few weeks’ stay in Vejle. He has been used on the left back, and here he has shown that he can also bid. Matthew is an experienced player who comes with matches at all levels in the English league system.”Guyana’s Matthew Briggs (#20) heads the ball against Gyasi Zardes (United States) during their encounter at the Allianz Field during the 2019 CONCACAF Gold Cup. (Photo by Hannah Foslien/Getty Images)“Matthew can be used both on the back and as a left midfielder, and with the approach we get more options in the back chain. With the signing of the contract, we once again add strength in the air to the squad, and then we have also found a defender with speed, which he has shown in several of the matches already, where he has excelled in the field,” Krüger said.Meanwhile, speaking exclusively with Chronicle Sport following his signing, Briggs, who also played for Watford, Millwall and Colchester United in England, called his journey to Superliga side one that came in full circle, while reasoning that “it feels so good that all my hard work has paid off.”After three seasons with Colchester, Briggs found himself down the ladder of top-flight English football, with stops at Maldon & Tiptree FC and Coggeshall Town before joining HB Køge Nordicbet LIGA in 2019, just before playing for Guyana at the CONCACAF Gold Cup.“Sometimes when you drop down the leagues in your career it’s not easy to come back up and that’s what makes it a greater feeling” and to be back playing top flight football is amazing for me and I’m going to keep working hard to stay there (at Vejle Boldklub FC),” Briggs said.last_img read more

Reports: Dave Roberts to be named LA Dodgers manager

first_imgDave Roberts will be the Dodgers’ next manager, according to multiple reports Sunday night.Roberts was the San Diego Padres’ first base coach from 2011-13 and their bench coach the last two seasons. He has never managed at any level.As an outfielder, Roberts starred at UCLA before playing 10 major league seasons for five different teams from 1999-2008. He broke through as an everyday player after being traded to the Dodgers prior to the 2002 season, then was traded to the Boston Red Sox in July 2004. His stolen base in Game 4 of that year’s American League Championship Series helped the Red Sox win the game and ultimately come back from a 3-0 deficit in the series.Roberts, whose father is African-American and mother is Japanese, would become the first minority manager in Dodgers history. Roberts can expect to face the same high expectations as Mattingly, himself a first-time manager when he succeeded Joe Torre in 2011. The Dodgers enjoyed five winning seasons in Mattingly’s five years, including National League West titles the last three.General manager Farhan Zaidi said last month that he expected the Dodgers to have a younger roster than the group that earned close to $300 million in 2015, a record.Among Roberts’ first tasks: hiring a coaching staff. Wallach is expected to join Mattingly as the bench coach in Miami. Roenicke has been hired as the Angels’ third base coach. Davey Lopes, who was the Dodgers’ first base coach the last five seasons, took the same job with the Washington Nationals. The team has yet to make an official announcement, and Roberts isn’t expected to be introduced Monday. According to several reports Sunday, his contract has yet to be finalized.The Dodgers parted ways with Don Mattingly on Oct. 22. The following week, Mattingly was named manager of the Miami Marlins.Nine candidates reportedly interviewed for the job over the last month: Roberts, farm director Gabe Kapler, third base coach Ron Roenicke, bench coach Tim Wallach, former Padres manager Bud Black, Mets bench coach Bob Geren, former Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson, Cubs bench coach Dave Martinez and University of Nebraska head coach Darin Erstad.Kapler was considered the early favorite for the job. Only he, Roberts and Black received second interviews. Neither Kapler nor Roberts have experience managing at the major league level, aside from one game in June that Roberts managed on an interim basis.The Dodgers have had nine managers since moving to Los Angeles in 1958 – seven since Tommy Lasorda’s final game in 1996. Roberts would become the 28th manager in the history of a franchise that began in Brooklyn in 1884.center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more

Latest: Chelsea 0 Man Utd 1 – United within sight of victory at the Bridge

first_imgJesse Lingard’s goal put Manchester United ahead at Stamford Bridge shortly after Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma was stretchered off.Wayne Rooney nudged Cameron Borthwick-Jackson’s cross towards Lingard, who cleverly turned away from Cesar Azpilicueta and smashed past Thibaut Courtois.Courtois was called upon twice in the opening 15 minutes, comfortably gathering low-range efforts from Borthwick-Jackson and Michael Carrick.Blues keeper Courtois then produced a fine save, diving to his left to push away Anthony Martial’s curling shot.Chelsea skipper John Terry was given a predictably rousing reception on his first appearance at the Bridge since announcing that he is not being offered a new contract and will leave when his current deal expires at the end of the season.There was nothing rousing about the home team’s start, but midway through the half they suddenly clicked into gear.Nemanja Matic’s header from Willian’s right-wing corner was saved by United keeper David De Gea, and Diego Costa fired narrowly wide after being put through by Oscar’s clever through-ball.Oscar then had two chances in quick succession, but he shot over after exchanging passes with Azpilicueta and was just unable to connect with Willian’s low cross.And in the final seconds of the first half, Chelsea felt they should have been awarded a penalty when Willian sent the ball in from the right and Daley Blind blocked Terry’s shot with his arm.United made a blistering start to the second half and Rooney and Lingard had shots saved by Courtois, while Martial fired wide of the near post.It prompted Guus Hiddink to bring on the fit-again Eden Hazard and a couple of minutes later the Chelsea interim boss was forced to make another change after Zouma landed worryingly awkwardly after going up for a header.Worse followed for Hiddink’s side on the hour mark when Lingard broke the deadlock.De Gea then produced stunning saves to deny first Branislav Ivanovic and then Cesc Fabregas as Chelsea, unbeaten since Hiddink was placed in charge, pushed for an equaliser.Chelsea: Courtois; Ivanovic, Terry, Zouma (Cahill 59), Azpilicueta; Mikel, Matic (Pedro 66); Willian, Fabregas, Oscar (Hazard 54); Costa.Subs not used: Begovic, Baba Rahman, Loftus-Cheek, Traore.Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

Multiverse Explanations Are Fashionable, If Not Justifiable

first_imgHow can scientists get away with speculating about unobservable universes, when science is supposed to concern itself with observation?  “In the end, there is no way to know for sure what other universes are out there, or what life they may hold,” an article in PhysOrg ended, “But that will likely not stop physicists from exploring the possibilities, and in the process learning more about our own universe.”  This appears to be a modern apparition of Arthur C. Clarke’s Second Law, “The only way of discovering the limits of the possible is to venture a little way past them into the impossible.”    The PhysOrg article, echoing a press release from MIT, speculated on life not just on other worlds, but in other universes.  “A definitive answer is impossible, since we have no way of directly studying other universes,” the article admitted.  The speculations are built squarely on chemical and biological evolution: “if conditions were suitable, matter would coalesce into galaxies and planets, and if the right elements were present in those worlds, intelligent life could evolve.”  Assuming those would happen, the scientists, if that is what they can be called, speculated about what physical constants would give rise to matter: “our physical laws might be explained ‘anthropically,’ meaning that they are as they are because if they were otherwise, no one would be around to notice them.”  The press release noted that some of the constants in our universe, notably the cosmological constant, appear fine-tuned to permit atoms and life.  “Varying only one constant usually produces an inhospitable universe,” it said, but perhaps “changes in primordial cosmological density perturbations could compensate at least for small changes to the value of the cosmological constant.”  Then again, how would they test this idea?    The multiverse concept was also prominent in a book review by Pedro Ferreira for Nature.1  He was discussing the new book by Sean Carroll (Caltech), From Eternity to Here: The Quest for the Ultimate Theory of Time (Dutton, 2010).  Apparently Carroll makes big use of the multiverse concept to explain the flow of time in our universe.  The direction of time toward maximum entropy has long fascinated physicists and philosophers.  Carroll’s thesis employs the multiverse and the anthropic principle to explain time’s directionality:Carroll’s solution for the arrow of time invokes the multiverse, a controversial concept that is a current battleground in theoretical physics.  Arguably a prediction from cosmology and string theory,and to some extent quantum mechanics, the multiverse idea supposes that the Universe that we perceive is but one of a countless collection, each of which can be in a different physical state.  A case can be made that our Universe looks the way it does because it is the only one of the many possible universes that can harbour us.  For example, in another universe in which the constants of physics were slightly different from those in ours, life would not be possible.So what does this have to do with time?Going further, Carroll adapts the multiverse idea to explain the directionality of time.  Universes such as ours, he suggests, continually pop into existence within the multiverse, which is itself in thermal stasis, with no sense of time.  We just happen to live in one of these baby universes, which started off in a low-entropy state and has an entropic arrow of time.So his answer is the Stuff Happens Law – the antithesis of a law of nature, and therefore of causation or explanation.  And by low-entropy state, he means really, really low.  Some estimates of the chances of getting a universe like ours are one in 10 to the 100th to the 100th.  No problem, Carroll must think, if baby universes just pop into existence all the time.    Ferreira enjoyed Carroll’s book with all these speculations.  He noted approvingly that “multiverse explanations are fashionable.”1.  Pedro Ferreira, “The unfolding of time,” Nature 463, 881 (18 February 2010); doi:10.1038/463881a.Would someone please explain how this kind of speculation differs from imagining fairies and flying pigs and aliens?  or why it should be blessed with the sacred appellation of science?  Theologians at least have some revelation to constrain their speculations about an unobserved heaven, hell and the afterlife.  This has nothing to support it.  Don’t say that these guys are acting scientifically because they are employing mathematics and laws of known physical quantities.  One could easily do the same with the aerodynamics of flying pigs, or the top running speed of gnomes.    Emboldened by the empty promises of naturalism, evolutionists have let their imaginations run amok.  Berserk is too mild a term for it.  They presume to speak with the authority of science when telling us that baby universes just pop into existence, with some of them having matter just popping into existence, into which some of the matter coalesces into blobs of protoplasm.  Then, by faith, eyes pop into existence (the Popeye theory of evolution, 05/31/2005), allowing the cosmos to see, and brains pop into existence, allowing the cosmos to understand itself – at least in localized carbon units.    This may be fashionable, all right, but many fashions are foolish.  It would be more honest for them to announce they are founding a new religion.  Here it is: the First Multiversalist Church of the Absurd.  Come in and worship Tyche, the goddess of chance.  Open your eyes of faith to see alternate realities.  Worship your imagination (01/17/2007 commentary) as you sing “When you wish upon a star, nature makes you what you are” (12/05/2008).  Be uplifted by our sermon, “Stuff happens” (09/15/2008 commentary).  Join in and sing our closing hymn, “Godless Philosophy” (see Darwin Hymnbook).    Thinking beyond the known into the unknown is not wholly unwarranted.  It can provide context for understanding the known.  Considering the low entropy state of our universe, for instance, should arouse astonishment at how improbable that would be by chance.  Considering what would happen if the physical constants of the universe were not finely tuned should arouse more astonishment.  The lesson that should result from such mental excursions, upon returning to the real world, is how privileged we are to enjoy life in such a world and universe.  That should result in humble thanksgiving to the Creator.  There is little humility or gratitude in the proud hearts of the dreamers living in imaginary universes.  Pay them no mind; they are blind leaders of the blind.  Now get back to work with your eyes open, your feet on the ground, and a song of praise in your heart (suggestion).(Visited 12 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Ensure Children are Fully Vaccinated Against Measles – Dr. Tufton

first_imgStory Highlights Minister of Health, Dr. the Hon. Christopher Tufton, is encouraging parents to ensure that their children are fully vaccinated against measles.The advice comes against the background of the recent increase in cases of the disease in the United States and across the region.Dr. Tufton said parents ought to take this precaution as measles kills more children than any other vaccine-preventable disease.“In order to stop the disease from spreading, 95 per cent of children in Jamaica need to be fully vaccinated with the two doses – MMR1 at 12 months and MMR2 at 18 months,” he noted.The Minister, who was making a statement in the House of Representatives on Tuesday (April 23), said the vaccines are available at all public health centres across the island free of cost.He lamented that there has been a decrease in uptake of the vaccines over the last few years, and in 2018, Jamaica had 89 per cent coverage of MMR1 and 82 per cent coverage of MMR2.In the meantime, Dr. Tufton assured that there are no local or imported cases of measles in Jamaica.“As at 30 March 2019, there were 3,674 suspected cases and 596 confirmed cases in the region of the Americas, with over 300 of the confirmed cases from the USA. In Europe, in January 2019, there were 881 cases of measles reported from 19 countries,” he said.Measles is a highly contagious illness caused by a virus that replicates in the nose and throat of an infected child or adult. The virus circulates worldwide, and approximately 90 per cent of susceptible people (persons not vaccinated) who are exposed to someone with the virus will be infected.Most cases of measles are mild and symptoms usually appear 10 to 12 days after exposure to an infected person, but may appear as early as seven days and as late as 21 days after exposure. Measles typically begins with a high fever, cough, runny nose and red, watery eyes.Two or three days after symptoms begin, tiny white spots may appear inside the mouth. Three to five days after symptoms begin, a rash breaks out, usually as flat red spots that appear on the face at the hairline and spread downward to the neck, trunk, arms, legs and feet. Small raised bumps may also appear on top of the flat red spots.The complications from measles include ear infection and diarrhea, while severe complications include pneumonia, swelling of the brain and death. Pregnant women may give birth prematurely or have a low-birth-weight baby.Jamaica has had no local spread of measles since 1991. The last imported case of measles in Jamaica was in 2011.The Ministry of Health continues to monitor the island for imported cases of measles. Persons may call 888-ONE-LOVE (663-5683) or visit the nearest health centre for more information. Dr. Tufton said parents ought to take this precaution as measles kills more children than any other vaccine-preventable disease. Minister of Health, Dr. the Hon. Christopher Tufton, is encouraging parents to ensure that their children are fully vaccinated against measles.

FULL STATEMENT BY HEDLEY ON SEXUAL MISCONDUCT ALLEGATIONS

first_imgAdvertisement Login/Register With: Facebook However, if we are to have a meaningful, open and honest discussion, we all have to accept and respect that there are at least two sides to every story. The recent allegations against us posted on social media are simply unsubstantiated and have not been validated. We would hope that people will bear-in-mind the context in which these unsupported accusations have been made before passing judgment on us as individuals or as a band.We realize the life of a touring band is an unconventional one. While we are all now either married or have entered into committed, long-term relationships, there was a time, in the past, when we engaged in a lifestyle that incorporated certain rock and roll cliches. However, there was always a line that we would never cross.We realize this conversation is as important to our fans as it is to us, and we never want to distract from these important discussions. To that end, as we move forward, we will be evaluating some of our next steps. Hedley’s music should only ever be a positive force, and our performances and personal appearances should continue to be inclusive and safe experiences that bring nothing but joy and happiness to our fans.
