CLASSY three-year-old colt BUZZ NIGHTMARE seeks his fourth consecutive win, in the opening race over 1000 metres (round) for overnight allowance horses at Caymanas Park today, and should have little difficulty in putting away his six opponents. Trained by 14-time champion Philip Feanny for owners Paul Hoo and Herbie Chong, the fleet-footed BUZZ NIGHTMARE, with Paul ‘Country ‘ Francis in the saddle, is prepping for the 27th running of the Glen Mills Caribbean Sprint Championship over 1200 metres on ‘Superday’, November 14, and having moved impressively at exercise – galloping five furlongs in 1:00.3 on October 26 – should use this as a stepping stone to much bigger things. Unraced as a two-year-old, the bay colt by Into Mischief out of Queen of Battle has won four of his five races to date, his only blemish coming in the Prince Consort Guineas Trial on March 22, when finishing fifth to fast-time winner SEMPRE FIDELIS over 1400 metres. Since then ‘BUZZ’ has won his three races over sprints in fast times, returning splits of 22.3, 46.0 in winning by 10 lengths over 1100 metres on July 18. He should prove the worst nightmare for his opponents, including recent winner BORDER LINE, who seems best equipped to follow him home. Another horse expected to extend his winning streak is bang-in-form FORCE DE JOUR, who bids for his sixth consecutive win in the ninth race over 1100 metres for $550000-$500,000 claimers. The 4-y-o gelding, who now takes orders from veteran trainer Robert Darby Sr, having beaten SUNLIGHT EXPRESS over the straight recently, is fit as ever and with Darby calling up promising 4.0kg claiming apprentice Bebeto Harvey, reducing the weight to 53.0kg, the speedy FORCE DE JOUR ought to be followed in a field of 11. I also like SIR BIGGS to go one better in the third race over 1820 metres, the well-forward 2-y-o debutante RALLY BABY in the fifth, TECHNOCAT in the sixth and FRANKENSTORM in the seventh over the straight.

…backed by FITUG, GTUC…no plans to attend conciliation talksBy Rupadai SeenaraineInfuriated by the remarks recently made by the junior Social Protection Minister Keith Scott, the Guyana Teachers’ Union (GTU) is demanding an apology, adding that it confirms their conviction of the Labour Department’s position on the salary increase situation. It was reported in sections of the media that the Minister blatantly referred to the teachers as being “selfish and uncaring” because of their decision to strike for better wages and benefits. This remark triggered a response from the GTU, demanding that the Minister apologise for his choice of words.Speaking to a large gathering of teachers on Monday, GTU General Secretary, Coretta McDonald stated that this comes in light of the fact that the Union had expressed their uncertainty towards the Labour Department last week when asked to be the mediator in their dispute with the Education Ministry.“We serve an Almighty God and did you recognise what he did. He confused the Honourable Keith Scott and allowed him to make a statement in support of us. We said to them on Friday and Thursday, we have no faith in the Department of Labour and they were upset with us. They said we were disrespectful,” said McDonald as she charged the teachers to stand by their decision.She explained that the action by the Minister proves that their suspicions were accurate, and any decision taken by the department would have been biased or in favour of the Education Ministry during the process. Loud cheers emanated at GTU headquarters as the teachers pledged their support and acknowledged what was said.“Imagine the people who want to mediate in between this story already taking sides and then they want us, the teachers who would’ve created all professions to trust them,” the General Secretary added.At that time, McDonald sought to point out that they will uphold their decision towards the continuation of the strike with no intention or interest in attending the conciliation talks which were organised by the Ministry. It was further indicated that they have “forgiven” the Minister for his comments.“The Minister himself said it. So what else do we want? Do we want to go to conciliation? No, we’re not silly people. We are the educated ones. We’re teaching them. We will not retreat until respect is given to us. Teachers have always been caring but the boy get mix up with the words. We’ll forgive him. We understand that process.”Defending the actions to strike for increased salary and better benefits, it was repeated that educators are being subjected to minimal wages while performing beyond the call of duty. Additionally, the “selfish and” uncaring” remark does not mirror the performance of the students in both the primary and secondary levels.“We are being paid the lowest of the scale and imagine we’re ‘selfish and uncaring’ and every year Guyana topping at CSEC? This year we would’ve had improvements in Maths and English at CSEC and at the CSEC level,” the General Secretary posited.“Imagine our Labour Department will turn to say that teachers are selfish and uncaring. Where is our Minister Keith Scott when our nursery school teachers are present at 06:30h in the mornings? Where is the Honourable Nicolette Henry when our teachers are at school at 03:30h in the afternoon?” she questioned.Meanwhile, calls for an apology on the part of the Minister were also echoed from the Federation of Independent Trade Unions in Guyana (FITUG) and the Guyana Trades Union Congress (GTUC), who asserted that Minister Scott’s statement required an apology.“This most astonishing statement by the Minister, who incidentally is responsible for the Department of Labour, is a clear demonstration of the Administration’s concern for the workers plight and troubles that have beset them in the era of the ‘Good Life’ coalition. The statement by the Minister, in our view, further unmasks the APNU/AFC Government and it reveals its true colours,” FITUG stated on Monday.An appeal was also made for the President David Granger to give ‘serious consideration and profound thought’ as to whether Scott is suited to serve as the political head of the Labour Department.Meanwhile, the GTUC said this is not the first time such utterances were made by the Minister and further sought to ask the perceptible question as to whether this is also a representation of the Government’s position on the matter.Educators from all corners of the country are currently protesting for ‘a liveable wage’ and they were seen protesting in front of schools, ministries and education departments on the first day of the academic year.

BLACKSBURG, Va. — A gunman massacred 32 people at Virginia Tech in the deadliest shooting rampage in modern U.S. history Monday, cutting down his victims in two attacks two hours and a half-mile apart before the university could figure out what was going on and get the warning out to students. The bloodbath ended with the gunman committing suicide, bringing the death toll to 33 and stamping the campus in the picturesque Blue Ridge Mountains with tragedy, perhaps forever. “I’m really at a loss for words to explain or understand the carnage that has visited our campus,” Virginia Tech President Charles Steger said. He was also faced with difficult questions about the university’s handling of the emergency and whether it did enough to warn students and protect them after the first burst of gunfire. Investigators offered no motive for the attack. The gunman’s name was not immediately released, and it was not known if he was a student. Wielding two pistols, the gunman opened fire about 7:15 a.m. at West Ambler Johnston, a coed dormitory, then stormed Norris Hall, a classroom building on the other side of the 2,600-acre campus, chaining the doors behind him to keep anyone from escaping. Two people died in a dorm room, and 31 others were killed in Norris Hall, including the gunman, who put a bullet in his head. At least 26 people were hurt, some seriously. Students jumped from windows in panic. Young people and faculty members carried out some of the wounded themselves, without waiting for ambulances to arrive. Many found themselves trapped behind the chained and padlocked doors. SWAT team members with helmets, flak jackets and assault rifles swarmed over the campus. A student used his cell-phone camera to record the sound of bullets echoing through a stone building. Trey Perkins, who was sitting in a German class in Norris Hall, told The Washington Post that the gunman barged into the room at about 9:50 a.m. and opened fire for about a minute and a half, squeezing off 30 shots in all. The gunman, Perkins said, first shot the professor in the head and then fired on the students. Perkins said the gunman was about 19 years old and had a “very serious but very calm look on his face.” “Everyone hit the floor at that moment,” said Perkins, 20, of Yorktown, Va., a sophomore studying mechanical engineering. “And the shots seemed like it lasted forever.” Students bitterly complained that there were no public-address announcements on campus after the first shots. Many said the first word from the university was an e-mail more than two hours into the rampage _ around the time the gunman struck again. “I think the university has blood on their hands because of their lack of action after the first incident,” said Billy Bason, 18, who lives on the seventh floor of the dorm. “If you had apprehended a suspect, I could understand having classes even after two of your students have perished. But when you don’t have a suspect in a college environment and to put the students in a situation where they’re congregated in large numbers in open buildings, that’s unacceptable to me.” Steger defended the university’s handling of the tragedy, saying authorities believed that the shooting at the dorm was a domestic dispute and mistakenly thought the gunman had fled the campus. “We had no reason to suspect any other incident was going to occur,” he said. Steger emphasized that the university closed off the dorm after the first attack and decided to rely on e-mail and other electronic means to notify members of the university, but with 11,000 people driving onto campus first thing in the morning, it was difficult to get the word out. He said that before the e-mail went out, the university began telephoning resident advisers in the dorms to notify them and sent people to knock on doors to spread the word. Students were warned to stay inside and away from the windows. “We can only make decisions based on the information you had at the time. You don’t have hours to reflect on it,” Steger said. He called the massacre a tragedy of “monumental proportions.” A law enforcement official, speaking on condition of anonymity because the investigation was incomplete, said that the gunman had two pistols and multiple clips of ammunition. Some students and Laura Wedin, a student programs manager at Virginia Tech, said the first notification they got of the shootings came in an e-mail at 9:26 a.m., more than two hours after the first shooting. The e-mail had few details. It read: “A shooting incident occurred at West Amber Johnston earlier this morning. Police are on the scene and are investigating.” The message warned students to be cautious and contact police about anything suspicious. Everett Good, junior, said of the lack of warning: “Someone’s head is definitely going to roll over that.” Edmund Henneke, associate dean of engineering, said he was in the classroom building and he and colleagues had just read the e-mail advisory regarding the first shooting and were discussing it when he heard gunfire. He said moments later SWAT team members rushed them downstairs, but the doors were chained and padlocked from the inside. They left the building through a construction area that had not been locked. Until Monday, the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history was in Killeen, Texas, in 1991, when George Hennard plowed his pickup truck into a Luby’s Cafeteria and shot 23 people to death, then himself. The massacre Monday took place almost eight years to the day after the Columbine High bloodbath near Littleton, Colo. On April 20, 1999, two teenagers killed 12 fellow students and a teacher before taking their own lives. Previously, the deadliest campus shooting in U.S. history was a rampage that took place in 1966 at the University of Texas at Austin, where Charles Whitman climbed the clock tower and opened fire with a rifle from the 28th-floor observation deck. He killed 16 people before he was shot to death by police. Founded in 1872, Virginia Tech is nestled in southwestern Virginia, about 160 miles west of Richmond. With more than 25,000 full-time students, it has the state’s largest full-time student population. The school is best known for its engineering school and its powerhouse Hokies football team. The rampage took place on a brisk spring day, with snow flurries swirling around the campus. The campus is centered around the Drill Field, a grassy field where military cadets _ who now represent a fraction of the student body _ practice. The dorm and the classroom building are on opposites sides of the Drill Field. A White House spokesman said President Bush was horrified by the rampage and offered his prayers to the victims and the people of Virginia. “The president believes that there is a right for people to bear arms, but that all laws must be followed,” spokeswoman Dana Perino said After the shootings, all entrances to the campus were closed, and classes were canceled through Tuesday. The university set up a meeting place for families to reunite with their children. It also made counselors available and planned an assembly for Tuesday at the basketball arena. It was second time in less than a year that the campus was closed because of a shooting. Last August, the opening day of classes was canceled and the campus closed when an escaped jail inmate allegedly killed a hospital guard off campus and fled to the Tech area. A sheriff’s deputy involved in the manhunt was killed on a trail just off campus. The accused gunman, William Morva, faces capital murder charges. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORESanta Anita opens winter meet Saturday with loaded card There are times when the letters and emails about a person or a subject come through in packs, but never have I ever received more queries than I did about Snow’s service, ranging from former teammates of his at St. Anthony, to former Rams teammates, to people who had just peripheral contact with the man and considered him important in their life nonetheless. Former St. Anthony coach Jack Radford told of the time Snow volunteered to help coach the receivers during spring practice. Radford expected him to come out one day; instead, Snow came out for the entire week and spent two hours each day with the kids. Mike Browne, meanwhile, is a cartoonist who recalls being a 5-year-old and watching Snow make a diving catch of a pass, “and a shutter went off in my head,” he wrote. So he sat down and drew a picture of Snow’s catch, and hasn’t put his pencil down since. Snow died way too young, 62, and way too tragically, because of a staph infection. The reality, though, is that those who knew him would have said he died young if he had made it to 100. That’s how much people thought of him. News: Snow didn’t always see a barber. Today’s warm memories edition of The Sporting Muse: News: Jack Snow’s friends and fans pay their last respects today. Muse: A story here on Snow mentioned that he always wore his hair short. But the ever-vigilant Tom Patterson, the local lawyer and unofficial Poly baseball historian, sent along an old football card of Snow from the ’70s showing the receiver with long hair. True enough. It was, of course, the style back then, and the images that stick are of Jack at St. Anthony and early with the Rams when he had the buzzcut, and after his career when he went back to the short look. News: A crowd of 3,000 attend services for USC legend Rod Dedeaux. Muse: I have always wanted to find out what would happen if the Trojan baseball coach who passed ever met Tiger Woods would he call him Tiger, as he did most everyone, or Eldrick? I can trace my affection for college baseball to Dedeaux, and even before I became a newspaperman. At Dorsey High School, my baseball coach was Art Mazmanian (his daughter Nancy worked at USC and is now an exec with the Angels), who had played at USC for Dedeaux and was a two-time All-American. Trojans current and past would often drop by Dorsey practices to throw batting practice, which gave me the chance to get behind the plate and catch the likes of Don Buford and Marcel Lachemann. My hand still hurts. At L.A. City College, the baseball coach was another Dedeaux product, the robust Bob Zuber, and several future Trojans spent a year at LACC, including Roy Smalley, before heading to Exposition Blvd. Zuber was the kind of coach who offered to create a spot on the bench for an overweight catcher with a weak arm. Then I went to Cal State L.A., where the “Diablos” of the politically incorrect time had their best-ever teams under Larry Cochell and went to war with USC in the NCAA regionals twice, 1973 and 1974. They had a late lead in Game 3 of their 1974 regional, which would have ended USC’s NCAA title run at four, before losing 11-9. Those ’74 Trojans may have been the best college team ever, considering all of its pros Smalley, Steve Kemp, Rich Dauer, Randy Scarbery, Pete Redfern and Dennis Littlejohn. There were also three football players on the ’73-74 teams Anthony Davis, Marvin Cobb and Rob Hertel. A year later, my first extended road trip in the newspaper business came thanks to Dedeaux. In 1975, he created a U.S. vs. Japan college all-star series that featured games at USC and in Omaha, and a young reporter was fortunate enough to make the trip. Dedeaux never forgot that when we would cross paths all these years later, which was always a treat, considering he was the guy who was unforgettable. News: Pitchers and catchers have reported. Muse: The college season gets an unofficial start in Long Beach next Saturday when two alumni events will be held at Blair, the old-timers game followed by the pro alums versus the 2006 Dirtbags. That doubleheader will be preceded Thursday by the annual Lead-Off banquet, which should be quite the happy place what with Astros reliever and Dirtbag alum Mike “Pepe” Gallo the guest speaker. The season opens for real Feb. 3 when the Dirtbags host USC. Mike Weathers’ team is ranked No. 22 by Baseball America, which clearly respects the program. Three players made the all-league team (Evan Longoria, Jared Hughes and Sean Boatright), Longoria and Hughes were ranked the 1-2 prospects in the Big West for the 2006 draft, Vance Worley was named freshman of the year and three of the five top newcomers are Dirtbags: Worley, Andrew Carpenter and Danny Espinosa. But Weathers is wary of expectations what with such a young team, no big bats added in the offseason, and the death march of schedules. Eight of the Dirtbags’ first 12 games are against ranked teams, as are their first 12 games in March. The season truly may start in April when league play begins, with everything before that a shaking-out period that Weathers hopes won’t be too shaky. News: Baseball America projects the West Coast will get 12 bids to the 64-team tournament. Muse: Or just three less than the SEC. I guess we should consider this projection as optimistic, considering the magazine projects at-large bids for a third team from both the Big West and West Coast conferences. The teams on this coast truly do batter each other with all their nonconference games. There are 23 California Division I programs and nine are projected to get bids, but it might be more if teams scheduled more interstate contests. Here’s how good baseball is in the state: Sonoma State and UC San Diego are preseason ranked in Division II, Chapman is ranked No. 5 by Baseball America in Division III, Biola made the NAIA rankings, and four of the top 10 draft prospects among junior college teams are playing in California. News: 49ers have a date with destiny Saturday. Muse: If Larry Reynolds’ team beats UC Riverside, the 49ers will improve to 9-8 the first time he’s ever been over .500 in his three-plus seasons as head coach. You take your plaudits wherever you can find them. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Muse: Here’s how many the late St. Anthony and Rams wide receiver had: His three kids held a public funeral last Saturday in St. Louis and were planning a private burial today.

Ever gone through a long stretch of not having an ingrown hair, and then BOOM…. 3 pop out of nowhere!? Suddenly you’re left wondering, what you did wrong and when?Well, don’t be too disappointed because it may just happen for no particular reason from time to time, or as we touched on in a previous column it may have something to do with your shaving technique. How many times have you noticed an ingrown hair “re-appearing” in the same place you pulled the hair out just a few weeks ago? Well, believe it or not it’s because you’re actually “pulling he hair out”. Okay, let me explain.The best way to rid yourself of an ingrown hair that has already formed is to gently pull the hair out of the bump or swollen area. But make sure to NOT remove the hair entirely…Why?Well, the reason the hair is stuck in the first place, is because it was growing below the skin’s surface. So, pulling the hair out entirely will only force the hair to start re growing from below the surface again, causing the same issue. So, whenever you see an ingrown hair bump forming, pull the hair out of the bump but keep it intact. That way, it ensures that the hair will be ready for the next shave.This step can be done with a sterilized needle, tweezers or even a safety pin can be used. Just make sure to light a match and run your needle or tweezers through it a few times to kill any potential bacteria.Ladies keep an eye out for the column over the next few weeks, we will have some quality and quirky ideas for stocking fillers, let it be Kris Kindle or the man of your life, we will have something for them all…..For more advice on male grooming call into us on lower Main Street Letterkenny, we guarantee great haircuts in a classic barbershop environment.Also follow us on Facebook!Male Grooming: A secret about ingrown hairs… was last modified: October 26th, 2016 by Mavericks BarbersShare 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)
