Hylton’s suspension fundamentally repugnant – Crowne

first_img NATURAL JUSTICE Crowne said that the provisional suspension not only violates WADA’s code, but also the code of the Anti-Doping Act as he questioned JADCO’s authority to issue such a suspension when it is the same entity bringing the case against his client. “That process is completely at odds with – forget even sports law, basic natural justice principles,” Crowne said. “There’s no way that survives. It’s exactly like if a police officer arrests you and says ‘for your bail hearing, you’re going to appear before the Commissioner of Police.’ People would laugh at that process. “This is how JADCO has been doing it since 2008 and there are dozens of athletes who have been affected by this. They’ve either given up or just said ‘let’s just get to the main hearing.’ JADCO has no ability to conduct its own hearing. That is fundamentally repugnant.” Crowne said he is pushing this matter, not only for Hylton but also for future athletes who may find themselves in a similar situation. He describes it as being of “great national importance” that JADCO acts within the rules of the Anti-Doping Act. JADCO’s attorney Lackston Robinson argued against Crowne’s suspension appeal, saying that it will raise what he described as jurisdictional issues, as he claimed the independent panel overseeing the case has no authority to make a decision on the matter. The day’s proceedings took longer than expected as it lasted just under two and a half hours. This was also because the two sides in the matter had a lengthy debate on the deadline for submitting documents to be presented as evidence in the trial. The date of the official hearing was set for May 30 and 31 at 10 a.m. each day, however the preliminary hearing will continue at 2:30 this afternoon at the same venue. The independent panel overseeing the hearing consists of Chairperson Georgia Gibson-Henlin QC, Japheth Ford, the medical representative and Denise Forrest, the sports representative. Riker Hylton’s attorney, Dr. Emir Crowne, said he had a busier day than he had expected in the preliminary anti-doping hearing of the 400 metres sprinter at the Jamaica Conference Centre, in Kingston yesterday. Crowne set out to prove that the Jamaica Anti-Doping Commission (JADCO) had “fundamentally violated” World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) rules by provisionally suspending the national athlete while he faces trial. In doing this, he also requested that the suspension be lifted, much like 400m sprint hurdler Kaliese Spencer’s attorney Paul Greene did in her case on Wednesday. Spencer and Hylton, although involved in separate cases, are both alleged to have failed to submit or evaded a sample request by a collection officer, under Article 2.3 of JADCO’s rules. However, both athletes deny these allegations.last_img read more

Boss has sympathy for Sheffield United

first_imgFulham head coach Rene Meulensteen has expressed sympathy for today’s FA Cup opponents Sheffield United. The Blades are currently struggling in League One and are one of a number of former Premier League sides who have dropped down the divisions because of financial difficulties.Ahead of Fulham’s fourth-round clash at Bramall Lane, the Whites boss said: “I’m surprised by their fall but that’s not to single out Sheffield United – there are a few clubs with a massive history who have dropped out of the Premier League.“There aren’t many teams in the Championship, for example, who have not been in the Premier League. So many of them have invested and got in there, stayed for maybe a year, and then dropped out.“It’s all to do with the finances and management of it because we all know, and you just have to look around the world, lots of clubs have these problems. It’s very hard to maintain a certain status.”Meulensteen added: “It’s tough to get back up there because when you are in the Premier League you get higher levels of players. If you drop out then you’re less attractive at pulling players in to get you back up.“It’s a domino effect – and if you can’t stop that then you’re going to get those sorts of problems.”Meulensteen insists his team cannot afford to underestimate United after the Yorkshire side beat Aston Villa in round three.He said: “It’s a false sense of security to think we have the players to just turn up and win. We are a big scalp for them.“I’ve watched them in League One and how they played against Villa and they were like two different teams. That’s what motivation and the challenge can do for you.“We can’t be complacent. It’s going to be an erratic game and we will need to remain calm and focused.”See also:Sheff Utd v Fulham: Youngsters pickedFollow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

Learn the Lingo: 15 Weird Filmmaking Terms

first_imgFrom cheeseplates to deadcats, let’s take a look at some strange filmmaking terms.When it comes to filmmaking, there are a lot of strange terms. Learning the lingo is a rite of passage that every filmmaker has to go through. Let’s take a look at some of the stranger filmmaking terms out there and figure out what they mean.C-47Other Names: CP-47, 47, Peg, Ammo, BulletOn a film set, a C-47 is simply a clothespin. The origin of why it came to be called a C-47 is somewhat fuzzy. Some say it was named after the C-47 airplane because of it’s versatility. Others say they were named after the bin in which they were stored. No matter the origin, a C-47 is one of the most-used tools on a film set. Typically they are used to clamp filters to the barn doors of lights, but they can also be used to hold up fabric or prank unsuspecting crewmembers.JuicerOther Names: ElectricianNo, a juicer isn’t a kitchen appliance or muscular person. In film, a juicer refers to an on-set electrician. A juicer is one of the most important roles on set, as there’s typically a lot of power required to operate all of the various pieces of equipment associated with shooting a film.MartiniOther Names: Martini ShotA Martini, or Martini Shot, is the final shot before wrapping the set for the day. It’s supposedly called the Martini shot because the next shot would be taken out of a glass, aka post-wrap drinking. It’s also been said that in the early days of Hollywood, stars would begin their post-wrap party a little early and start drinking martinis during the last shot. When you hear the term martini said on set, it brings about as much joy as a couple of real ones.StingerOn a film set, stinger refers to a single extension cord. A stinger refers to any size of extension cord. Typically on a film set, stingers will be black instead of the bright orange cables found at local hardware stores.LegsWhen a filmmaker is talking about legs, they’re typically talking about the legs of a tripod. On most professional tripods, the head and the legs can be easily separated. Professional tripod legs are usually made out of carbon fiber, as they are light, tough, and good in extreme conditions.SticksSticks is another word for tripod on a film set. If someone were to say grab the sticks, they would be referring to both the legs and head of the tripod.BabyOther Names: Baby Stick, Baby LegsA baby on a film set is a small set of tripod legs. Tripod legs come in all shapes and forms, but if you are wanting to put your camera extremely close to the ground, you’ll want to go lower than what most standard tripod legs will allow. To do this you will want to use a baby, or small tripod legs, to get low-angle shots.StrikeOther Names: StrikingTo strike on a film set simply means to turn on a production light or series of lights. While it is less common in modern filmmaking, every now and then you might hear someone yell “striking” when turning on a light. However, some argue that it is much better to simply say “mind your eyes, light coming on.”CheeseplateA cheeseplate is a metal plate with holes designed to serve as a multipurpose utility bracket for various film related accessories. While cheeseplates come in all shapes and sizes, they are almost always used to create camera rigs. The holes allow the user to mount screw-based devices easily.Abby SingerAbbey Singer refers to the second-to-last shot at a specific film location. It was named after Abbey Singer (pictured above, far left), a famous production manager who would alert his crew two shots before the set needed to be collapsed.CookieOther Names: CucolorisA cookie is a device used to mask light patterns onto a background. Cookies can come in all shapes and sizes, but they’re almost always placed on a stand separate from the actual light source. They’re called cookies because their hole patterns look like a chocolate chip cookie.Run and GunRun and gun is a term used to describe a style of filmmaking with very little production equipment besides a camera. Run and gun is typically used in documentary-style filmmaking, as filmmakers aren’t always given the luxury of a controlled set. With cameras quickly progressing in dynamic range and sensitivity, it is becoming increasingly popular for indie filmmakers to utilize a run and gun approach to their craft.Dead CatOther Names: Wind Muff, Mic CoverOn a film set, a dead cat is a fuzzy cover that goes around the end of a boom mic to block out wind distortion. The name fits the accessory perfectly, as its furry exterior makes it look just like a dead cat. Rode currently sells a DeadWombat that is slightly larger than a traditional dead cat.ClapperOther Name: Film Slate, Clapboard, Slate, Clapperboard, Slapperboard, Time Slate, BoardA clapper is a board used for syncing and identifying a shot in post. A clapper is most notably the most iconic accessory on any movie set. Typically a clapper will have a place to write the scene, take, and shot with some other information like production title, director, and DP.Know of any other weird film terms?

JAMAICA 47 Foreign Nationals Granted Citizenship

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#Jamaica, December 18, 2017 – Kingston – Forty-seven foreign nationals living in Jamaica have been granted citizenship by the Government.   They were presented with documents formalizing their status by the Passport, Immigration and Citizenship Agency (PICA) during a swearing-in ceremony at the Police Officers’ Club in St. Andrew on December 14.   The ceremony was attended by National Security Minister, Hon. Robert Montague, who has portfolio responsibility for PICA.Mr. Montague said the occasion was a time to celebrate the fact that despite the challenges facing the country, there are still hundreds of persons from other nations who want to make Jamaica their home and “want to share this privilege with those of us who are born here”.Noting that some 2,000 persons were deported from the island last year, with another 537 being denied entry, the Minister emphasised that the participants had been afforded an “exceptional privilege” by being granted citizenship.“We are happy to welcome you. (While) each person has a different background, what unites us is that you are now Jamaicans.   You have varying skills and talents, which can now be used to help your new country.   You will now take on the duties and responsibilities of Jamaican citizens… and you must take these very seriously,” he added.Mr. Montague encouraged them to engage in community activities and civic duties while honoring their statutory obligations.   Meanwhile, Chief Executive Officer of PICA, Andrew Wynter, pointed out that approximately 3,000 foreigners are granted Jamaican citizenship annually.    He said that the latest batch of 47 persons represents the largest number of candidates granted citizenship on a single occasion, adding that PICA has granted citizenship to some 10,000 persons during its 10 years as an executive agency.“This is a watershed moment for the agency, as we have come to recognize that there are approximately three to five million Jamaicans in the diaspora who have descendants, relatives and others who are eligible for Jamaican citizenship.   It is our intention to reach out to them to be a part of the family of this our great Jamaica,” Mr. Wynter said.Citizenship recipient, Dr. Ehis-Oje Pius Areghan, who responded on behalf of the group, described the occasion as an opportunity that “comes with responsibilities”.“It now becomes our responsibility (as new citizens) to exercise our civic duties, especially to help one another,” he said.Dr. Areghan, who is originally from Nigeria, is based at the Cornwall Regional Hospital in Montego Bay.    “I am happy to be (here). The joy and love I have gotten from Jamaicans, I doubt I would ever get it in any other country,” he added. Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Related Items:last_img read more

Laporte believes Deschamps has personal reasons for France snub

first_imgLaporte has not been included in France’s lineup since appearing on the bench in their 2-0 loss to Spain back in March of 2017.Aymeric Laporte says Didier Deschamps has “personal reasons” for not letting him debut for the French squad, yet. Despite Laporte becoming a regular starter in Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City this season, Deschamps hasn’t given the youngster an opportunity.Laporte is sure that Deschamps’ decision is not based on his current form on the pitch.“There is a coach and he doesn’t call me, so I need to wait, to keep working and that’s it,” Laporte told EiTB, according to FourFourTwo.“Of course I don’t think it’s because of a sporting issue, you’d have to ask him personally, I don’t have anything personal against him, but if someone has a problem it’s him and not me.“I could be a world champion… but these are the decisions of the coach, who is not calling me for, I think, personal reasons, and I have to respect him.norwich city, manchester city, premier leagueReport: City are stunned by Norwich George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Manchester City was stunned by Norwich City in todays Premier League clash.Much has been made in recent days of the potential impact of Aymeric…“I’m not going to call him. Why? To slam him?“I’m still working in the club, playing at the highest level for this kind of thing [an international call-up]. The only person who can solve this is the coach.”Laporte started his career at Athletic Bilbao before moving to Premier League champions Manchester City in January of 2018. He could also be eligible to play for Spain, but the 24-year-old wants to play for his birth country, instead.“Play with Spain? I think that’s already closed, but even so I opt for France because I’m French,” Laporte said.“I don’t have dual citizenship and I’m not going to ask for it. I don’t know if playing with Spain is possible.”last_img read more
