Saints look to alumni to fill out coaching staff

first_imgThe Selkirk College Saints began their BCIHL regular season on Friday at Eastern Washington University and former Saints defenceman Adam Makaroff was back on the bus, but this time not as a player.Makaroff joined the Saints coaching staff in August and has had an immediate impact on the bench and in the dressing room.“I’m excited to be back with the Saints as a coach and help the team to another successful season,” Makaroff says. “I hope that my previous experiences can help these young men along the way. It’s going to be a lot of fun,”After spending four years in the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League (KIJHL) and winning a championship with the Nelson Leafs in 2009, Makaroff attended and played at Selkirk College for three seasons.While serving as an assistant captain, he accumulated 20 points and 101 penalty minutes over three seasons in the BCIHL.“Adam has valuable championship winning experience and is a perfect addition to our coaching staff,” says Saints head coach Alex Evin. “You can’t have enough winners around a sports program and obviously one of our main goals is to compete for another championship.”As a former blueline leader, Makaroff will work with the strong defensive core returning to the Saints.The two time defending BCIHL champion Saints dropped the first regular season game of the 2014-15 campaign with a 4-3 shootout loss to the upstart Eastern Washington University Eagles in Cheney, Washington.Stefan Virtanen, Stephan Gonzales and Jesse Knowler scored for the Saints while James Prigione made 23 saves on 26 shots.In their last exhibition weekend in late-September, the Saints hosted Grant MacEwan University Griffins out of the Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference (ACAC) in a pair of games at the Castlegar Complex.The Saints dropped the second game of the double header 2-0, but they were able to keep pace all weekend with the Griffins who are touted to be one of the strongest teams in the ACAC this year.The first match up provided one of the most entertaining games in recent memory as the fast paced, end-to-end action continued through three periods of play.Finding themselves down 4-2 midway through the third period, the Saints eventually found their way as they have done many times in the past. Gonzales started the rally at the 10:54 mark and Arie Postmus tied it up with just over four minutes left. The Saints took the momentum into overtime when Thomas Hardy scored his second of the night after charging in on partial breakaway to cap a 5-4 comeback win. Also scoring for the Saints was Alex Milligan.SAINTS NOTES:The Saints will commemorate their second straight BCIHL Championship with a banner raising ceremony at their home opener on October 17. Eastern Washington will be in town for a 7 p.m. puck drop.last_img read more

Republican fundraising email features darkened Kaepernick image, report says

first_imgIt has been more than 2 1/2 years since Colin Kaepernick suited up for an NFL game, yet it appears there are people still trying play defense against him.On Wednesday, the National Republican Congressional Committee distributed a fundraising email. On Thursday, Yahoo reported that an image of Kaepernick in the email appeared side-by-side with President Trump, and that the Kaepernick image seemed to have been altered to make Kaepernick’s skin tone appear darker.The email asked respondents who …last_img

Bill to empower Khoisan community

first_img8 August 2011President Jacob Zuma has lauded Adam Kok I, the Griqua leader who stood up to the colonial authorities 300 years ago, as “one of the greatest warriors ever produced by our country”, and said a new Bill would empower South Africa’s indigenous Khoi, San, Nama, Korana and Griqua communities.“The former slave and cook for colonial governors of that era, Adam Kok decided he was not going to fold his arms and allow people to take his land and oppress his people,” Zuma said at the Good Hope Centre in Cape Town on Sunday, at an event marking the 300th anniversary of Adam Kok.Earlier in the day, Zuma laid a wreath at the Castle in commemoration of Adam Kok.The president also lauded Chief Autshumato, who in 1659 battled Dutch settlers under Jan van Riebeeck and was sent to Robben Island, where he became the only prisoner to ever successfully escape from the island.Addressing members and descendents of the Khoi community, he said the Department of Co-operative Government and Traditional Affairs had identified these communities as needing to receive recognition and assistance.National Traditional Affairs BillThe new National Traditional Affairs Bill provides for the representation of traditional leaders in municipal councils. The draft law also provides for the setting up of an advisory committee to investigate and make recommendations on the Khoisan community staff by experts on customary law and institutions of indigenous groups.The Bill is expected before Parliament by the end of the year, said Zuma, adding that the idea was that indigenous groups would be able to have a better say than in the past.“I think what we should appreciate is that we were never consulted by the old apartheid and colonial government on any issue,” Zuma said. “Decisions were taken against us in the majority of cases and some forced down our throats.”He said consultations on the Bill had already been held with Khoisan community and a three-day workshop with the community was held last month.The government plans to hold 29 consultative sessions on the new Bill across the country aimed at engaging with various indigenous communities, which will commence on 20 August and run till September 16.He said the government was also looking at honouring indigenous leaders of the past, including marking their graves, as many had been buried in unmarked plots and forgotten.‘Call us what you want, we have a history’Zuma was joined on stage at the Good Hope Centre by Griqua king Adam Kok V, as well as a Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries Minister Tina Joemat-Pettersson, Public Enterprises Minister Malusi Gigaba, Deputy International Relations Minister Marius Fransman, and Western Cape MEC for Community Safety Dan Plato.Fransman, speaking in Afrikaans, said the wreath-laying was a humbling experience because after hundreds of years people were still proud of their Khoi history.He said it was time for people to say that enough was enough, adding that a community that didn’t know its history was destined to disappear from history.“They called us Baster, they called us Coloured. But call us what you want, we have a history,” Fransman said, adding that the struggle for Khoi recognition in the country had been a “rough road”.King Adam Kok V said the Khoi, one of the country’s first indigenous people, were still as marginalised as they were 300 years ago.“Our people’s morale is very low and therefore they venture into criminal activities,” Kok said. “I want to call on our government to give them jobs and create job opportunities.”Also addressing the crowd, Khoisan community leader Aaron Messelaar said there was a time when Khoi people had to work in the kitchen and had been denied education.He said the inhumanity and racial classification of the past had angered the Khoi, but today the Khoi wanted to stand together to make a difference. Said Messelaar: “Ons is die grond en die grond is ons [We are the earth and earth is us]”.Source: BuaNewslast_img read more

Without a Sales Leader

first_imgYou can try to run a sales organization without a sales leader, but you will never generate the results you are capable of without one. All of the problems and challenges that will prevent you from acquiring clients and growing your revenue will stem from the lack of a leader. It isn’t a good idea to try to build a sales organization without having a leader in place.You can build a sales process designed to help you compel change, create value for your dream clients, and win new business. Without a leader to help salespeople learn, follow, and make adjustments to that process, the process is meaningless, worthless. With a leader, a process can provide an excellent framework for winning new deals.If you want to hire people without providing them a leader, you may as well take the money you would spend on that sales force, pour gasoline on the money, strike a match, and burn the money. Without a leader to set priorities, to set the cadence, to coach and develop them, salespeople will not perform to their true capacity. With a leader, you will have a sales force with priorities, an operating rhythm, and a coach who will improve their skills—and their results.Maybe you will do others have done before you, try to change the process, train the sales force, install a new methodology, or maybe fire the whole sales force and start over. Doing any or all of these will leave you exactly where these decisions have left the entrepreneurs and executive leaders who tried to change everything instead of hiring a leader. They were left in the same place as where they started, namely, lacking a sales leader.It is important to get things in the right order. Without providing the sales force with the leadership they need, you are not giving them a fair chance to succeed. Nor are you giving yourself that same chance. Hire the leader first, and then work on building around them.last_img read more

Theres going to be a big gap here surprise as Greyhound leaves

first_imgGreyhound’s decision to pull out of Western Canada has blindsided both workers and riders.The company announced Monday it would be ending service in Manitoba, Alberta, Saskatchewan, and B.C. — except for a route between Vancouver and Seattle — at the end of October.“I think a lot of these communities, they don’t have any trains, they don’t have any planes, and all they had was the bus. It’s going to be a huge impact,” ATU Local 1374 President Eric Carr said.“Not just for the people that are — the seniors or the kids that don’t have a driver’s license — we also transport — blood –, and we move so many items that are just basic for a lot of these communities: the parts that fix their tractors and everything else.”Carr said Greyhound’s policies have always been America-driven because it is an American company.He said suggestions from employees on how to attract more riders in Canada haven’t always been taken seriously.“We’ve been for years telling them: ‘this is what you need to do here, this is what you need to do here’ to give the riders a better experience. They wanted all their trips to be at night because they focused on freight. People don’t want to ride a bus all night,” Carr said.Alberta Transportation Minister Brian Mason was also surprised by the decision.He told CityNews, there are alternatives in many communities in the province, but the government is evaluating how many people will be left in the lurch.“We’re going to continue to dig into this matter and see what role there is, or there may be to assist making sure that all Albertans have access to the transportation that they need,” he said.Mason said they can’t make any commitments yet.“There’s going to be a big gap here,” Carr said, adding the federal government may have to step in.“If the Trudeau government sees a need for a national bus company to survive, I believe that if that’s the case, the company would reverse its decision, if we got some sort of subsidy.”last_img read more

Sebi slaps Rs 94 lakh fine on 17 entities for fraudulent trade

first_imgNew Delhi: Capital markets regulator Sebi slapped Rs 94.5 lakh penalty on 17 entities for indulging in fraudulent trade practices in illiquid stock options segment on the BSE. The regulator, during the course of investigation between April 2015 and September 2015, found that 81.38 per cent of all the trades executed in the stock options segment involved reversal of buy and sell positions by the clients and counter-parties in a contract on the same day. Also Read – Thermal coal import may surpass 200 MT this fiscal These entities were among those “whose reversal trades involved squaring off transactions with significant difference in sell value and buy value of the transactions,” Sebi said in similarly worded separate orders on Friday. It further said trades of the entities are non-genuine as they are not executed in normal course of trading, lack basic trading rationale, lead to misleading appearance of trading in terms of generation of artificial volumes, and are hence deceptive & manipulative. Also Read – Food grain output seen at 140.57 mt in current fiscal on monsoon boost By indulging in such trades, the entities have violated provisions of the Prohibition of Fraudulent and Unfair Trade Practices (PFUTP) norms, Sebi said. Accordingly, a fine of Rs 9 lakh on Makers Casting, and Rs 8 lakh on Ashok Investors Trust has been levied by Sebi. Others have been fined in the range of Rs 5 lakh to Rs 6 lakh. The orders are in accordance with the Securities and Exchange Board of India’s announcement in April 2018 on taking action in a phased manner against 14,720 entities for fraudulent trade in the illiquid stock options segment. In a separate order, the regulator imposed a penalty of Rs 18 lakh on promoters of Man Industries for not making requisite disclosure to the company and exchanges after change in their shareholding in the firm. “Substantial Acquisition of Shares and Takeovers (SAST) Regulations requires every promoter of a target company to disclose details of any invocation or release of encumbrance of shares. Such disclosure of creation, release and invocation of disclosures required under…has to be made within 7 working days from creation, invocation and release of such encumbrance,” Sebi said. However, the entities failed to do so and consequently a fine of Rs 6 lakh on JPA Holdings and Rs 12 lakh on Jagdishchandra Mansukhani has been imposed by the regulator.last_img read more

We will see a new PM everyday under mahamilawat govt Shah

first_imgTakhatpur (Chhattisgarh): Taking a dig at the grand alliance of opposition parties, BJP president Amit Shah Thursday said there will a new prime minister everyday of the week if such a “mahamilawat” or “highly adulterated” government comes to power at the Centre. Addressing an election rally here in Bilaspur district, Shah said Prime Minister Narendra Modi is the only leader in the country who can give a befittingreply to Pakistan for its anti-India actions. Also Read – India gets first tranche of Swiss bank a/c details “There are two camps clearly visible in this election – one NDA and its allies led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi which is united and then there is mahamilawat (highly adulterated) gathbandhan of Rahul Baba and company,” he said. “When I asked them that if by mistake their alliance gets elected, who will be your Prime Ministerial candidate…? silence is the only answer I get. “One of my party workers sent me a message on WhatsApp about their planning if they get elected. That is, on Monday Sharad Pawar will be the PM, while on Tuesday it will be Mayawati. Also Read – Tourists to be allowed in J&K from Thursday “On Wednesday it would be Akhilesh Yadav, Deve Gowda on Thursday, Stalin on Friday and Mamata Didi on Saturday while on Sunday the country will be on leave,” he said, mocking the anti-BJP alliance. That is the reason why people shout slogans of `Modi Modi’ as they know only he can provide a strong and stable leadership, the BJP chief added. Work done by the Modi government in the last five years has changed the lives of 50 crore people in the country, he added. Hailing the air strike on a terror camp at Balakot in Pakistan in February, Shah said the government under Modi has safeguarded India’s borders and he is the only one who can give a befitting reply to the neighbouring country. “The Narendra Modi government has done the biggest work of securing our borders. During the 10 years of Sonia Gandhi and Manmohan Singh-led UPA rule, Aliya, Maliya, Jamaliya anybody (terrorists) entered our borders and chopped off heads of our jawans and insulted them. “When the Pulwama terror attack occurred, there was anger among people in the country. Pakistan had deployed tanks on its border fearing another surgical strike. “Barely 13 days after the (Pulwama) attack, Narendra Modiji gave orders to the Air Force and the Air force carried out air strike and demolished terror camps in Pakistan,” he said. After the air strike, when the people of the country were happy, sadness had gripped two places – Pakistan and the office of Rahul Baba and company, Shah said. Mourning in Pakistan was obvious. But why they (Rahul Gandhi and his alliance partners) were in pain? Were they (terrorists) their `chachere bhai’ (cousins), he asked, attacking the Congress-led opposition. “Guru of Rahul Gandhi, Sam Pitroda, says a few people committed mistake and a dialogue should be held with them. Do you think talks should be held with those who killed our 40 jawans…our policy is clear – reply of bullets will be given with shells,” Shah asserted. “They (terrorists) will be given a befitting reply. The BJP has a zero tolerance policy against terrorists,” Shah said. Lashing out at the Bhupesh Baghel-led Congress government, which came to power in December, Shah said, Chhattisgarh was a ‘Bimaru’ (underdeveloped) state when it was formed (in 2000). “The Raman Singh-led BJP government, during its 15- year rule (2003-2018), took it to new heights of development. After the Congress came to power in the state, it stopped the BJP government’s scheme of distributing gram and salt to the poor people.” Shah said Chhattisgarh may again become a ‘Bimaru’ state under the Congress rule. “It seems in the Congress rule, Chhattisgarh will once again become a Bimaru state aslaw and order situation has deteriorated and no new industries are coming up. “Only one industry is flourishing in the state and that is `transfer industry’,” he said, apparently referring to transfer of bureaucrats. Shah addressed the rally in support of Arun Sao, the BJP candidate from the Bilaspur Lok Sabha constituency which will vote on April 23 along with half a dozen other seats.last_img
