GAA: ST MICHAEL’S BOYS CROWNED U16 LEAGUE CHAMPIONS

first_imgThe winning St Michael’s teamST Michael’s U16s boys are celebrating after being crowned Division One Champions today.Odhran McFadden was the hero as the Dunfanaghy/Creeslough side edged the clash with St Eunan’s by just a single point.The sides had been level at four points each at half-time as both sides struggled to adapt to the strong breeze in Milford. When St Eunan’s rattle home a goal into the second half to take a two point lead, it looked as though they could go on and win it.But their next score never came.Instead young McFadden scored three points in a row to give Michael’s a 0-09 to 1-05 lead.St Eunan’s – who had beaten the same team 0-11 to 0-06 in the northern final – pressed for an equaliser but couldn’t get past the blanket defence. It was a determined display from both teams, with little doubt after the game that the future of football in the county looks good with players from both sides surely contenders for minor and senior honours in the future. GAA: ST MICHAEL’S BOYS CROWNED U16 LEAGUE CHAMPIONS was last modified: October 19th, 2014 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:county finalSt EunansST MICHAEL’S GAA CLUBU16’slast_img read more

Stoppage-time own goal gifts Iran unexpected win over Morocco

first_img Bouhaddouz turns the ball into his own net in the fifth minute of stoppage time 3 3 While it was agony for Bouhaddouz to gift Iran the win, there were some wonderful scenes at the end of the game from the Iranian bench.Manager Carlos Queiroz was on his knees at the final whistle as he won his first game as Iran boss in a World Cup finals. It’s moments like these which pulls on the heartstrings of all football fans.GROUP B TABLE Iran claimed just their second ever win at a World Cup finals after snatching a dramatic 1-0 victory over Morocco in St Petersburg.A catastrophic own goal by Aziz Bouhaddouz gifted Carlos Queiroz’s men the victory in a game which lacked clear-cut chances.center_img There were jubilant scenes at the end for Iran Both sides went into the game knowing that nothing short of a win would do if they wanted to reach the knockout stages as they are alongside heavyweights Portugal and Spain in Group B.And it was Morocco – who are making their first World Cup appearance since 1998 – that tried to seize the initiative first, and they nearly took the lead inside four minutes when Younes Belhanda narrowly headed over from Nordin Amrabat’s firm cross.On 18 minutes, Medhi Benatia missed a glorious chance to give Morocco the lead but the Juventus player shot straight at Iran keeper Alireza Beiranvand after the ball pinballed around the box.After a frenetic start, the game slowed down but Iran should have taken the lead just before half-time, but Munir Mohand Mohamedi made a brilliant double save to deny Sardar Azmoun and then Alireza Jahanbakhsh.The second-half was played at a slower pace; however, Hakim Ziyech’s crisp strike forced the Iran keeper into a good save on 79 minutes.It looked like the game was drifting to an uninspiring draw but Bouhaddouz inadvertently diverted a free-kick from the left into his own net to leave the Iranian’s ecstatic.STAR MANAlthough Iran won the match, Morocco were the more positive team and Ziyech brought some much-needed quality to the contest.The attacker, who has been linked with a move to Liverpool, produced a great strike which would have gone in on another day and perhaps would have been a more deserving goal to win the match.MOMENT OF THE MATCH 3last_img read more

LETTERKENNY DOCTOR ‘COULD NOT TAKE PATIENT’S PULSE’, INQUIRY HEARS

first_imgA JUNIOR doctor recruited to work at Letterkenny General Hospital last July could not take a patient’s pulse, an inquiry has heard.The inquiry was told there were concerns about the competency of Dr Asia Ndaga (31), who qualified in Romania in 2008, from the moment she joined the hospital on July 1st, 2010.There were concerns that her medical knowledge was “weak” for a senior house officer, at the slow speed of her assessment and diagnosis of patients and about her ability to calculate drug dosages. A clinical incident had been noted formally whereby a nurse had to show her how to certify the death of a patient and how to write up medical notes in relation to a patient transferred from Dublin.Dr Ndaga, who did not turn up for the inquiry, was found guilty of poor professional performance. The fitness to practise committee will report to the full council and recommend an appropriate sanction, which was not disclosed.LETTERKENNY DOCTOR ‘COULD NOT TAKE PATIENT’S PULSE’, INQUIRY HEARS was last modified: July 20th, 2011 by gregShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Small ball still rules

first_imgANAHEIM – It was gone, vanished from the face of the Earth, soon to be appearing on milk cartons and the subject of a frantic search. Somebody, somewhere, please find that Angels game. “We put a couple of guys into motion, but not with a lot of success,” said manager Mike Scioscia. In the middle of the fifth the Yankees led 2-0. The Angels were staring at one Randy Johnson start from being swept out of the playoffs for the second consecutive year. The situational hitting and stealing and bunting and scraping and tough defense that had served them so well during the regular season, that had helped to make up for their lack of power, suddenly appeared to have deserted them in playoffs. Chien-Ming Wang, a rookie sinkerballer who had never started in the postseason in his young life, was handcuffing the Angels. Through four innings, he had allowed just two singles. This was something of an improvement over his last start, where he appeared rattled and walked six Red Sox. Fenway Park, of course, actually comes equipped with playoff atmosphere anytime the Yankees come to down. Angel Stadium apparently gave all it had to give in 2002. Some Elks Clubs offer more atmosphere. The Yankees led and appeared in reasonable control of the game and series. Yankees manager Joe Torre, having seen what the Angels’ aggressive style can produce, wasn’t buying in. “No lead is safe when you’re dealing with a club like the Angels,” Torre said. “They keep putting the ball in play and doing things.” They weren’t doing much throughout most of Wednesday. Chone Figgins, their needed leadoff sparkplug, is 0-for-8 in the series. So is No. 3 hitter Garret Anderson. The Angels’ first run came via the polar opposite of their typical attack. The Angels ranked 10th in the American League in home runs, but Juan Rivera led off the bottom of the fifth with a solo shot to deep center. The Angels first showed signs of rediscovering their game in the sixth when third baseman Alex Rodriguez lost Cabrera’s bouncer for an error. Cabrera advanced on a Vladimir Guerrero’s groundout to the right side and scored on a Bengie Molina two-out single. The search party had not been called back, but there was fresh hope discovery was possible. Then it reappeared, one small step at a time. An infield hit, a couple of bunts, a clutch hit. Suddenly the Angels knew who they were again, a postseason identity crisis averted. The prototypical rally began in the seventh when Rivera hit a high chopper to Derek Jeter at short. Rivera stumbled doing down the line, almost falling, before regaining his stride and then diving head first to just beat Jeter’s throw. Steve Finley, as everyone knew he would, bunted. Wang fielded the ball as Finley sprinted down the line, hurrying his throw just enough to pull Robinson Cano off the bag. The winning run was at second with no outs, the Angels at home and Scioscia – as he always does – still bunted. Adam Kennedy’s bunt advanced the runners to second and third. Figgins flied to shallow center, and up came Cabrera with two outs. The same Cabrera who helped break the Yankees’ hearts last year with the Red Sox. Torre elected to stay with Wang, and Cabrera lined the first pitch into center for a two-run single. “We didn’t have many hits, but they sure all counted,” Scioscia said. And just that quickly, all was right in the Angels’ universe. Small ball lived, and so did the Angels. Steve Dilbeck’s column appears in the Daily News four times a week.

A rumor of better times, a tale to tell small children. center_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREThe top 10 theme park moments of 2019 Remember when the Angels small ball drove other teams to distraction? When they put constant pressure on opponents, forced them into mistakes, stretched every possible opportunity? On an unusually hot October night, just when it appeared the Angels had suffered a serious identity crisis with the arrival of the postseason, it suddenly reappeared. Faster than you can say Orlando Cabrera, the Angels’ aggressive game was back, and with it a 5-3 victory that evened their best-of-five series at a game apiece. For one night – or at least the last third of it – small ball ruled. For most of the night, however, the Angels looked like they had lost their way. They either couldn’t get men on, or ran into outs when they did. They couldn’t force the action, couldn’t do all those little things that had been their forte. last_img read more

Exploring the Impact of Moral Injury on Military Families: Follow- Up Q&A with Dr. Brock

first_imgDr. Rita Brock was the presenter for the 4th and final session of our 2016 Virtual Learning Event. Session 4, entitled Exploring the Impact of Moral Injuries on Military Families provided insight and knowledge in helping guide work surrounding this important topic. At the end of the webinar, some of the participants had lingering questions for Dr. Brock. Below, we have provided the questions and answers.Q: You mentioned a resource throughout the webinar on helping children through deployment. Would you mind sharing that with us?A: This Guide to Deployment for Families can be found under resources for congregations here.Q: Do we know why moral injury affects some, but not everyone? Is the research pointing to anything there?A: There are no data on moral injury per se that I know of. However, studies show that a previous history of trauma (esp. PTSD) makes a person more susceptible to further trauma. Since PTSD is not a fear-based trauma, it is not clear whether one instance of moral injury would make one more susceptible to another. It might be different for moral injury: if a person had been able to process a morally injurious experience and begin recovering, he or she might have greater resilience for handling future incidences. Here is one study:Harris, J.I., Erbes., C.R., Engdahl., B.E., Thuras, P., Murray-Swank, N, Grace, D., Ogden, H., Olson, R.H.A., Winskowski, A.M., Bacon, R., Malec, C., Campion, K., & Le, TuVan (2011). The effectiveness of a trauma-focused, spiritually integrated intervention for veterans exposed to trauma. Journal of Clinical Psychology, 67, 1-14.Q: Do you have suggestions for preventative strategies, if there are any?A: The only person who is inoculated against moral injury is a sociopath. As to normal people with moral consciences, moral injury is related to a number of factors, such as the developmental stage of young adults and their inability to handle moral ambiguity, that may be involved. Jonathan Shay believes that military unit cohesion has protective value against isolation and that better leadership in the command structures also can prevent a sense of feeling betrayed. One of the other student projects (which we hope to have posted on our resources website by the end of October), was a youth minister guide for young adults considering military service. It is based on input from a veteran in his congregation who suggested that having a clear sense of purpose for enlisting was important to not getting lost and disoriented in service. Helping people stay in touch with their humanity in inhuman conditions is crucial, a role military chaplains play, so training chaplains in understanding moral injury is also important. I’ve been working with chaplains on this since we opened in 2012, and Brite includes a course on moral injury in our military chaplain certification program.Q: You mentioned Trauma Release Exercises. Do you have a resource that you would like for us to share for that? A website or a particular person?A: Here are two videos that explain and demonstrate how and why it works on trauma:Trauma Releasing Exercises (TRE)TRE® Tension, Stress, Trauma Release A Revolutionary Way To Feel BetterWe use Michael-Phap Nguyen-Uyen, a US Marine veteran and Zen teacher, at our events. Here is his story.I think there is value-added because he uses mindfulness meditation practices with the TRE process. There is MRI research on meditation and its value to restoring thinking capacity. But there are many teachers of TRE. I have downloaded the TRE phone app, which guides me through the process. I find it a useful way to relax and release stress from work.Q: You mentioned a friend of yours, Lisa Dunster. Do you have more information on her story?A: Here are some sources about her. She’s a National Guard veteran, a high school English teacher, and a remarkable person. This story is about how she almost slit her husband’s throat.This is about the retreat program she runs for veterans and families. After becoming a speaker for us, she added moral injury into the work they do and regularly has a chaplain create programs for her retreats.This is one of her public talks about her military experience. She always says something new and important, and I skype her into my classes.If you were unable to participate in VLE 4: Exploring the Impact of Moral Injury on Military Families or any of the other 2016 VLE sessions of Strengthening the Family CORE, they are all available for archived viewing.This post was written by Bari Sobelson, MS, LMFT, the social media and programming specialist for the MFLN Family Development Team. The Family Development team aims to support the development of professionals working with military families.  Find out more about the Military Families Learning Network Family Development team on our website, Facebook, and Twitter.last_img read more
