UEFA have announced that Russia will host the 2023 Super Cup despite the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) recommending the nation should not be allowed to host major competitions. The European governing body revealed on Monday that the 2023 clash between the winners of the Champions League and the Europa League will take place at the Kazan Arena. Russia was already set to host a number of matches during the summer’s pan-continental European Championship. But while the nation recently avoided a blanket ban from the Olympics and other major sporting events, WADA recommended late last year that they should be prevented from hosting sporting events for at least four years. This is because they had been part of an ‘extremely serious’ case of non-compliance around doping issues. Liverpool celebrate after winning the 2018/19 Champions league There were a series of breaches of the World Anti-Doping Code carried out by Russia to lead to the decision.

Jansen’s strikeout of Hernan Perez in the 11th was his 36th of the season without having allowed a walk all year, setting a major league mark.Both teams combined for 42 strikeouts.But Bellinger had the biggest hit after lining a 1-2 fastball from Feliz (1-5) into the right-field bleachers to break the 1-1 tie. Yasmani Grandal had tied the game with one out in the ninth by lining a 3-1 fastball from closer Corey Knebel over the wall in right-center. Lost in the late-inning power surge was the duel between starting pitchers Kershaw and Jimmy Nelson. Domingo Santana had the only run off Kershaw, hitting a 1-0 fastball down the middle of the plate deep to left-center to ending a stretch of 20 in a row retired by the lefty. It was a rare mistake in a game in which Kershaw fanned a season-high 14, one off his career high. MILWAUKEE >> Cody Bellinger homered in the 12th inning off Milwaukee Brewers reliever Neftali Feliz, salvaging a 2-1 win Friday for the Los Angeles Dodgers on a night when ace left-hander Clayton Kershaw recorded his 2,000th strikeout. Kenley Jansen (3-0) pitched two scoreless innings for the win, stranding the potential tying run at third with one out in the speedy Jonathan Villar by striking out Orlando Arcia looking and getting Travis Shaw to pop out to short. The Dodgers pulled out a win and a couple impressive mound milestones, too. Their pitchers set a franchise record with 26 strikeouts, breaking the previous mark of 22 set on Aug. 8, 1972 in a 19-inning loss to Cincinnati . Nelson was just as effective for the Brewers, tying a career high with 11 strikeouts and allowing five hits over eight strong innings. Kershaw counterKershaw recorded his 2,000th strikeout in 1,837 2/3 career innings. The Dodgers said he was the third-fastest pitcher in major league history to reach the milestone. Pedro Martinez reached the plateau in 1,715 1/3 innings, and Randy Johnson was next at 1,734 innings.Trainer’s roomDodgers manager Dave Roberts said that left hander Alex Wood (shoulder) could start throwing by the end of the weekend, and that tests on Wood’s AC joint came back negative. Wood might return for the Dodgers’ series next weekend at home against the Reds, Roberts said. … Tests on left hander Adam Liberatore (forearm) revealed no nerve or ligament damage, and Roberts said the reliever would probably be sidelined a couple weeks after going on the 10-day DL on Wednesday.The Brewers Ryan Braun is running on a treadmill for the first time since going on the DL for a left calf injury, though the outfielder says there is no timetable for his return. Braun went on the 10-day DL on May 26, the second time he had been sidelined this year for the injury. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error

Dear Editor,I must advise at the outset that even though the PPP is still run by an Executive Committee in between Congresses, it is my observed view that the post-1992 PPP leaders have no desire to take Guyana to any communist or socialist system. So what is it that they are trying to promote? It is my observed view that they are hell bent on completing the hundreds of necessary deals to uplift the lives of the Guyanese people economically after failing under the Ramotar term.Deals like completing the hydro-electric project (AFHP); the transportation link to Brazil, the deep water harbour; the restructuring of the productive sectors to take them up the value chain to the point where they can become more productive; creating greater value and more jobs for the people; and, of course, that specialty hospital, among other things.This is what distinguishes them from the current PNC-led Granger government. This Granger government has exposed its stripes as the same old PNC that is focused on form rather than substance, and pageantry rather than human progress.What this Granger government is focused on is reviving Burnham’s words as issued in the Sophia Declaration in the 1970s. This Granger government is a political force still stuck in the past, and does not know how to build the future.The PPP losing power in 2015 was necessary, because it caused two things:1. It created the memories of their political humiliation that took them back to their core – Jaganism, (lean, clean and mean administration).2. It has created the opportunity for the great purge, where the party apparatchiks who served for generations but who are still stuck in the old world are moved out to create room for more youths who are living in the present moment. The PPP in 2020 is expected to have almost all its candidates under 60 years of age, with the majority in their 30s and 40s. That said, history has taught us that the PPP has a natural political strength of about 190,000 solid votes come rain or storm. The PNC, on the other hand, has about 160,000 of those. But the winning force needs 205,000 votes.The mathematics reveals that the PNC has to hunt for 45,000 votes for victory, which I believe is unachievable with a record like what they have today. The PNC leadership appears lethargic and incompetent, and logged off from the people’s problems. They seem more focused on self-enrichment, with two AFC ministers being reputed to have become billionaires already, and one PNC minister in the Ministry of the Presidency also in that elite group. Additionally, the AFC and WPA are more focused today on fighting each other for the political crumbs, and thus are of no help to the PNC politically. The one thing that is driving the PPP today is “no more humiliation for the PPP”, and thus they were forced by the people to clean up their act. But they cannot be seen to be clean with people like Donald Ramotar and Clement Rohee on the list, and this is their challenge. But where does this leave Bharrat Jagdeo? Well, he was the creator of Ramotar, and must share the blame for the mess the PPP is in today. But what we must never discount is that among the rank and file of that 190,000 voters who are considered at the natural strength of the PPP, he is almost like a demi-god. These 190,000 people know only a Jagdeo can beat a Granger in 2020. Though he has much baggage, he is the most capable of the entire Executive Committee.But that does not mean that if the CCJ rejects the third-term case, the PPP is finished. They have two other very capable members of the Executive Committee who have the talent and experience to do this job under the guidance of Jagdeo — Gail Teixeira and Anil Nandlall. Frank Anthony is a nice fellow, but he is a political mook when it comes to the national stage. He is seen as a shallow politician who does not have a position on most matters, and that projects him as one with no charisma. Therefore he does not have what it takes to combat in the ring with candidate Granger. Maybe in 10 years’ time. Respectfully,Albert Allen
Dear Editor,Are we to believe that profitability was the only criterion used by the coalition government to callously close the sugar estates? If this was so, then the so-called downsizing or ‘right-sizing’ should have never taken place since there were more compelling reasons why they should not have been shuttered.There were some who supported the closure since they saw taxpayers’ dollars going down a ‘dark hole’. Even a few pseudo-economists could have only seen that these monies could have been better diverted in providing other public services and given wage increases to public servants. This was adamantly echoed by a visionless AFC leader. These myopic visionaries could not have seen that closing sugar estates would spell the doom for a grossly mismanaged economy where corruption has become endemic.They reasoned that once a business is no longer profitable then it should be closed. That false premise appealed to some who are ignorant of economics. Moreover, with oil coming as early as 2020, why hold on to a ‘bloodsucking entity’? Oil will be the panacea for all our social and economic ills, they reasoned, oblivious of the ‘oil curse’! Whether this will be so is now very much doubtful given the wholesale give away of our oil resources from corrupt deals brokered by the coalition government. The pre-contract costs, the insignificant royalties, and the lop-sided production sharing agreements are just a few.Furthermore, the Government, as another of its deceitful elections campaign tactic, is hotly debating how to spend the ‘tons’ of illusory cash; whilst one faction wants to give ‘fishes’, another faction wants to teach ‘fishing’. But what is certain is that the Agriculture sector is faced with imminent extermination. This is a sector which holds the key to our sustained social and economic development. Only a fool will deny that GuySuCo provided numerous benefits to the economy even though it was a loss-making entity. It provided employment both directly and indirectly; it earned scarce foreign exchange which helped to stabilise the exchange rate. It provided medical services to poor people and provided drainage and irrigation services both to residents and farmers. Moreover, all the surrounding communities benefited from the wages and salaries earned by the sugar workers. The closing of Wales, Enmore, Rose Hall and Skeldon estates negatively affected these communities and the domino effect was devastating. These communities are yet unable to cope with the resulting social and economic fallouts. The subsidies given to this entity were well-spent!It is now the stark reality that it was never the intention of this Government to save sugar but instead it came to be used as another avenue to ferment the many forms of corrupt practices unleashed on this nation and to wreak vengeance for supporting the PPP. It could be recalled that when the $30 billion bond was secured, it was meant to upgrade the remaining estates and to invest in plantain white sugar and co-generation plants. However, after spending more than $17 billion, none of these materialised. In fact, the estates continue to suffer from factory breakdowns, inputs for field operations, and impassable dams resulting in GuySuCo being nearly 35% behind their schedule. This is a fall short by 12,023 tonnes. In the first crop also, GuySuCo had also failed to achieve its first crop target. This is a direct result of the SPU starving the entity of much needed funds to carry out its capital works and maintenance. The old adage still holds true: Too many cooks spoil the broth! The foisting of the SPU on the hapless GuySuCo seems to have one purpose and that is to bring the remaining three estates to such a deplorable and unproductive state that closure becomes the only option. I fully empathise with the management of GuySuCo!In the meantime, the $30 billion ‘largesse’ is meant to ensure that the fat cats are well-fed and the monies are squandered, filling the pockets of those in the SPU and by extension some in the Government. It must be painfully recalled that even though GuySuCo was given an average annual subsidy of $5 billion, all the estates were operational, foreign exchange in excess of US $100 million was garnered from exports, jobs were saved and workers were enjoying a reasonable standard of living, communities were thriving, and the US dollar was stabilised. In addition, there was little flooding, residents were getting assistance from GuySuCo but today, the resources-starved entity could hardly help itself. Now the NIS contribution has dwindled, thereby, resulting in the entity being unable to meet its financial obligations.The CoI saw these benefits to the economy and advised against any closure!However, the economy and the people of Guyana can be deemed collateral damage! These should have been the foremost criteria for any Government worth its salt!Yours sincerely,Haseef Yusuf
