Arsenal’s Emery charged over kicking bottle at fan

first_imgArsenal manager Unai Emery has been charged with improper conduct after he kicked a bottle at a Brighton & Hove Albion supporter, the Football Association (FA) said on Thursday.The Spanish coach immediately apologised to the fan following the incident during the closing moments of Arsenal’s 1-1 Premier League draw at the Amex Stadium on Wednesday.Emery said he hoped the his swift apology would be enough to avoid a potential touchline ban.“I kicked it for me and it went near the supporters. I said my apologies, I repeat my apologies again,” he told a news conference on Thursday.“I kicked it because it is near me and not because of this intention.”When asked if he expects to be punished retrospectively by the FA, Emery said: “I hope not. It’s not to do with the action but the circumstance. I hope the apology is the end to the matter.”Emery has until 1800 GMT on Jan. 2 to respond to the charge.Arsenal visit league leaders Liverpool on Saturday.last_img read more

Bid to protect Borneo’s wild cattle hinges on whether it’s a new species

first_imgArticle published by mongabayauthor The Bornean banteng is considered to be a subspecies of the banteng found on Java, but some scientists are arguing the animal should be recognized as its own species.Local indigenous communities are trying to protect the banteng, invoking customary law to fine their own members and outsiders who hunt it. Community planning has spaced rice fields farther apart so that the banteng have room to travel.In the headwaters region of the Belantikan River in central Borneo, only 20 or 30 Bornean banteng are known to remain. LAMANDAU, Indonesia — At the headwaters of the Belantikan River on the island of Borneo, an organization committed to protecting orangutans is extending its efforts to a slightly less charismatic megafauna: the endangered Bornean banteng, a type of wild cattle.Long thought to be subspecies of the banteng found on Java, Bos javanicus, a growing body of DNA evidence suggests the Bornean banteng may be its own species — a distinction conservationists hope will earn the animals the attention they need to help ensure their survival.“We’ve been researching them since 2003,” said Eddy Santoso, the director of the Indonesian Orangutan Foundation, known by its local acronym of Yayorin. A master’s degree student initially caught wind of the elusive population in 2003, through stories from the local community, but it wasn’t until 2007 that the first tracks were confirmed. Eventually researchers found droppings and horn marks deep in the forest.Yayorin director Eddy Santoso displays kekali and pompaan fruit that grow only in the area around the Belantikan River headwaters. Image by Budi Baskoro for Mongabay.Motion-activated cameras placed near mineral salt licks in 2013 captured the first photographic proof that the small population indeed exists. Ultimately, a network of 32 video cameras placed throughout the 64-square-kilometer (25-square-mile) study area recorded the banteng. Several were traveling in family groups, with calves up to 3 years old following their mothers through the thick forest. The best estimates put the total number of wild cattle living in the Belantikan area at no more than 20 animals.Scientists estimate somewhere between 5,000 to 8,000 Bos javanicus remain in the wild, but habitat loss, hunting, and crossbreeding with domestic cattle have placed the species on the IUCN’s Red List as endangered.Three distinct subspecies are currently recognized: B. j. javanicus occupy the Indonesian islands of Java and Bali, while B. j. birmanicus are found throughout mainland Southeast Asia. The Belantikan population of banteng, along with a few other isolated groups found on the island of Borneo, have long been considered a third subspecies, B. j. lowi, but physiological differences, and now genetic markers, suggest they may be their own species entirely.“Because accurate baseline data about the banteng is lacking in Indonesia, it has long been assumed that these animals are descendants of the Javan banteng,” said Iman Safari, program manager at Yayorin.A Javan banteng, center, at a safari park near Jakarta. Image by Petrus Riski for Mongabay.But according to Iman, recent genetic tests conducted by researchers at the Bogor Institute of Agriculture indicate that the Bornean banteng may actually be more closely related to the gaur (Bos gaurus) than B. javanicus. Ranging from India to mainland Southeast Asia, the gaur is the world’s largest wild bovine.The genetic analysis of a protein known as Cytochrome C oxidase I found a 4.3 percent difference between the Bornean banteng and the Javan banteng. Analysis on a different protein, Cytochrome B, put the species separation at 5.5 percent.New species have been declared based on a genetic difference of only 3 percent, Iman said, so the findings support the notion that the Bornean banteng may actually be a separate species.“What this means, anyway,” Iman said, “is that it has given us the confidence to push to declare this group a new species.”He pointed to the 2017 declaration of the Tapanuli orangutan (Pongo tapanuliensis) as a separate species from the Sumatran orangutan (Pongo abelii) as a precedent. This, Iman said, could serve as a roadmap for how the Yayorin researchers can go about getting their banteng recognized. He said he hoped to speed through the typically long and laborious process of declaring a new species.If the Bornean banteng is indeed a separate species, it would likely be listed as critically endangered, given the small remaining population size and rapidly shrinking habitat. This distinction could help bring new attention and resources to help protect the animals, who share the forest with Yayorin’s main species of concern: the Bornean orangutan (Pongo pygmaeus).“Orangutans are an umbrella species that exist as part of a greater ecosystem,” Eddy said, “and if there are banteng in the orangutan’s ecosystem, we will work to protect the banteng as well.”A pair of Bornean orangutans. Image by Rhett A. Butler/Mongabay.In the early 2000s, the Belantikan forest was home to some 6,000 orangutans — the largest wild population found outside of a national park, wildlife reserve or other protected forest. Around the same time, only about 30 banteng were thought to exist in the same area. A census conducted two years ago now puts the number of banteng closer to 20.The Belantikan River runs along the Schwaner Mountains, a natural barrier between Indonesia’s Central and West Kalimantan provinces. Yayorin’s center of operations is in Lamandau district, near Nanga Matu, the furthest upstream village. Nanga Matu, like most villages around the headwaters, is surrounded by an area classified by the government as production forest, which means it’s open to logging and other commercial activity.But the lands around the village are in better shape than in many other parts of the district that have been converted to oil palm plantations. The Belantikan forest still contains trees with trunks more a meter (3 feet) in diameter, and support some 56 species of plants known to be eaten by the banteng.This isn’t to suggest that the forest around Nanga Matu is pristine. On the contrary, a logging company previously held a concession covering some 980 square kilometers (380 square miles) in the district, although Eddy said the total area had since decreased. Yet despite this disturbance, monitoring by Yayorin has confirmed that a small population of banteng has been able to sustain itself up to this point, and conservation efforts are expected to protect their future.A group of Bornean banteng in Lamandau. Image courtesy of Yayorin.According to Iman, 17 square kilometers (7 square miles) of the headwaters area have been designated as conservation forest by the Lamandau government, and he is encouraged by the efforts of several villages in the region that have issued bylaws to protect the banteng. Some communities have invoked customary law to fine their own members and outsiders who hunt the banteng, and community planning has spaced rice fields farther apart so that the banteng have room to travel.“In the past the fields were planted too close together,” Iman said, “and if a banteng trampled a field, damaging the harvest, the villagers would automatically kill it.”Nanga Matu village is also considering developing a conservation tourism package, though they admit it won’t likely be of mass appeal, and will probably be quite expensive.Other proposals for helping to protect the species include a sanctuary breeding program, but Iman is concerned that this will be difficult, as banteng are easily stressed; calves separated from their mothers don’t often survive.These ideas are being discussed for possible implementation by the newly established Forum for Conservation of Belantikan Banteng, which will work with the local government and communities to develop a conservation plan that meets the needs of all parties.“If nothing else, we hope to increase awareness of the banteng,” Iman said, “and maybe get its status raised.” He points out that orangutans, he pointed out, are classified as critically endangered, despite there being far more of them than the banteng — which is only listed as endangered.A previous version of this article mistakenly said that only 20 to 30 Bornean banteng remain alive in the wild. That is actually the number that exist in the Belantikan River headwaters region. There are Bornean banteng found in Sabah, for example.Banner: A group of Bornean banteng.

It is mentioned that planting trees in village common lands will have negative affects socially and ecologically. There is no need to even have to agree or disagree with it, because, you also mentioned the fact that Cauvery Calling aims to plant trees only in the private lands of the farmers. So, plantation in the common lands doesn’t come into the picture.2.I don’t see that the ecologists are totally against this project, but just they they have some concerns, mainly in terms of what species of trees will be planted. And because there was no direct communication between the ecologists and Isha Foundation, it was not possible for them to address the concerns. As you seem to have spoken with an Isha spokesperson, if you could connect the concerned parties, it would be great, because I see that the ecologists are genuinely interested in making sure things are done the right way.May we all come together and make things happen.Rare Amazon bush dogs caught on camera in BoliviaCarrot1 Feba very good iniciative to be fallowed by the ranchers all overSponsoredlast_img read more

TT coach home after Grenada clinic

first_imgPeter Kavanaugh, a Jamaican table-tennis coach from Mandeville, returned home yesterday after conducting a training course in Grenada. Kavanaugh’s visit to the Spice Isle follows interest from countries in the region in the services of Jamaican table-tennis coaches. Kavanaugh says Grenada is enthusiastic about the sport. Speaking on Friday, the last day of the Level 1 coaching seminar he conducted, he reported, “The mood is enthusiastic. Coaches were drawn from the police, from the civil service, teachers and so forth.” Kavanaugh took the aspiring Grenadians through a course he has taught several times in Jamaica. “What it means to be a coach, styles of coaching, psychology of young players in development”, he began. “Then, you move from that into, if you’re dealing with six- to nine-year-old kids, how it is that you’re going to introduce them to the concepts of table tennis,” he added. Earlier in the year, Table Tennis Jamaica president Godfrey Lothian had indicated that some of his regional colleagues had approached him making requests for Jamaican coaches to assist in their countries. Kavanaugh was happy to be of service. “We’re brothers and sisters, all the English-speaking Caribbean, even the non-English-speaking’, he explained. “You have to be a Caribbean person, maybe in your thinking, to probably have this interest because some people will have the certification and it just stands at their yard, and if you look at it, I’m not interested in that.” Absent when Kingston hosted the 60th Caribbean Senior Championships in September, the Grenadians could be back at the table in the foreseeable future. “But, you see, there’s no point not having your team up properly and just entering for the sake of entering,” Kavanaugh advised. His suggestion to local table tennis there was to concentrate on junior players. Accordingly, he exposed young players to the sport in Grenada. “I got the kids to come on Tuesday, and I was able to interact with in excess of 30 or 40 kids”, he recalled. “Normally, this wouldn’t happen during a Level 1 course, you know,” he said. “In level one, it’s just the coaches, but I insisted [on] kids, and I wanted persons who are disabled, and by Wednesday, we had a disabled person there in his wheelchair,” he noted.last_img read more

Nimba County Education Officer Threatens Journalists

first_imgThe County Education Officer in Nimba County Wleh Sillah prevented scores of journalists from interviewing Education Minister George Werner as he ended his weeklong tour in the Ganta.Mr. Sillah threatened to call on officers of the Liberia National Police to keep journalists away from Minister Werner, who did not do anything much to help the situation.“Don’t go near the Minister, but if you force it, I will order police to get you all from here,” he threatened.Minister Werner and his entourage entered Nimba County from the southeast of the country, where he had been touring several schools before arriving in Ganta to also visit the Child Friendly School Campus.Journalists managed to speak with Minister Werner earlier but he asked them to meet him at his rest stop, at which time the several expatriates traveling along with him would have had the chance to talk to the media.Arriving along with the Minister’s convoy, excited journalists made their way to his location when CEO Sillah decided to show to the journalists who really should have access to Minister Werner. The journalists included those of the Daily Observer, Inquirer, ELBC and several others.“I don’t want to speak with any journalist on my tour before the Legislators ask me questions,” Minister Werner had told the reporters at the Child Friendly School Campus, contrary to his earlier promise to allow them to interview him on the results of his tour so far.Observers interviewed told journalists that there are many issues that affect education in Nimba County since the new education policy which led to the early closure of schools and they wanted to hear from what Minister Werner would say about it.CEO Sillah had been at loggerhead with owners of private and mission schools in Nimba County for what they described as his reckless statements many of which he was compelled retract with some apologies.The recent distribution of school grants in Nimba County was marked by reports of alleged fraud in which certain percentage was deducted from each school which could not be verified.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Fergie sets sights on transfer targets

first_img0Shares0000LONDON, England, April 30- Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson revealed on Tuesday that he is already plotting how to strengthen his squad during the close-season transfer window.United secured the Premier League title last week, but with rivals Chelsea and Manchester City both expected to invest heavily in new players in a bid to bridge the gap next season, Ferguson says his side cannot afford to stand still in the transfer market. “We’ve been doing a bit of work on that over the last three or four months, targeting who the players are that we feel could enhance us, make us better or help us maintain the level we’re at,” he told the club’s official magazine, Inside United.“Hopefully the players we bring into the club in the next year or so will be of the quality we need. We’re competitive in the market — we’re not Chelsea or Manchester City in terms of money, but we’re competitive.”United have been linked with some high-profile strikers in recent weeks, including Robert Lewandowski of Borussia Dortmund and Atletico Madrid’s Radamel Falcao, but Ferguson believes the squad already has solid foundations.“You have to look at the structure of the club at present, in terms of the number of first-team players we have at 23 or under,” Ferguson added.“David De Gea, Rafael, Phil Jones, Chris Smalling, Alex Buttner, Nick Powell, Tom Cleverley and Danny Welbeck (are all 23 or under). Shinji Kagawa and Chicharito (Javier Hernandez) are 24. Jonny Evans is 25 and Wayne Rooney is hitting his peak at 27.“Older players like Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes and Rio Ferdinand may be coming towards the end of their careers, but these younger players are the foundation for the next five or six years, irrespective of the players breaking through, like Adnan Januzaj, the Belgian boy, who’s really looking very good.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

New trial rejected in ’00 murder

first_imgLANCASTER – Prosecutors won’t retry a reputed gang member whose murder conviction for killing a gang rival who greeted him with “What’s up, dawg?” was overturned on appeal because authorities did not exert enough effort to find a key witness. Prosecutors said they won’t retry Larry Davidson for murder because he is already facing a long prison term for attempted murder from the 2000 shooting on a downtown Lancaster street. “We reinstated the attempted-murder conviction and he got life plus 25 years to life,” Deputy District Attorney Benny Osorio said. “We are not proceeding on the murder case because the sentence is practically the same he would have received in a murder conviction.” Other factors considered were the age of the case and the victim’s family having to sit through another trial, Osorio said. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREThe joys and headaches of holiday travel: John PhillipsVictim Quorne Warren, 21, lingered on life support for 10 months after being shot in the neck on a downtown street. Davidson was convicted of attempted murder before Warren died, then put on trial for murder after he died. Davidson was convicted of first-degree murder and sentenced to two consecutive terms of 25 years to life. But the state’s 2nd District Court of Appeal in May overturned Davidson’s murder conviction, ruling that the murder trial judge erred in deciding that the prosecution had shown due diligence in trying to secure the presence of witness Amere French. French’s testimony from a pretrial hearing was read to the murder-trial jury without any possibility for the defense to cross-examine him. French testified at the preliminary hearing that he was with Davidson and some others – all members or associates of the Crips street gang – outside a friend’s home when Warren walked by wearing the colors of the rival Bloods gang. French said Warren asked the group, “What’s up, dawg?” Davidson interpreted the remark as disrespectful, prosecutors said. French testified that Davidson got a handgun, chased Warren for about two blocks and then fired the gun two times. French did not see whether Warren had been hit because his view was obstructed by a building, according to the appellate decision. The three judges on the panel said they were troubled about whether prosecutors’ search for French was timely and whether his possible location was competently explored. A district attorney’s investigator was contacted to try to find French less than a month before the scheduled start of trial, the judges said, and then left for a three-week vacation. French’s mother and brother had told the investigator that French was in Utah, but the investigator didn’t believe them. He visited a Palmdale house looking for French three times, but didn’t begin checking employment, hospital, booking and welfare records until after the trial started, the judges said. karen.maeshiro@dailynews.com (661) 267-5744160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
