People walk by a huge screen showing US Open women’s singles champion Naomi Osaka with her trophy, in Tokyo, Monday, Sept. 10, 2018. (AP Photo/Koji Sasahara)TOKYO — Naomi Osaka’s halting Japanese, her manners — she bowed and apologized after beating Serena Williams in the U.S. Open final — and her simple charm has swelled national pride in Japan and eclipsed many questions about her mixed-race parentage in a famously insular country.Two days after becoming the first Japanese player to win a Grand Slam tennis title, Osaka is still filling the front pages of the country’s three major daily newspapers and leads the discussions on talk shows.ADVERTISEMENT Allen Durham still determined to help Meralco win 1st PBA title Japeth Aguilar embraces role, gets rewarded with Finals MVP plum View comments Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Ginebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup title She smiled through the media pressure, which several newspapers have called a Japanese trait. Her broken Japanese works as an asset, apologizing occasionally for getting the wrong word — or not knowing the Japanese word at all.“She is not the type of person who asserts herself boldly, but she is shy and humble and that makes her look more like a Japanese,” Junko Okamoto, a communications specialist, wrote in the weekly magazine Toyokeizai.Okamoto also said Osaka could become a face of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, leading to big sponsorship deals.Forbes magazine has reported that Williams is the highest earning female athlete with income of $18 million per year, almost all from endorsements. The Evening Fuji tabloid newspaper, citing Forbes, speculated wildly about Osaka’s potential lifetime earnings. Its headline suggested she could earn $100 million.The Mainichi, one of top three general circulation newspapers, noted that Osaka was wearing a dress at a victory celebration from a well-known Japanese designer.Osaka’s 73-year-old grandfather, Tetsuo Osaka, surfaced in several interviews from Japan’s northern island of Hokkaido, where he heads a fishing cooperative. He said he plans to meet his granddaughter when she plays next week in a tournament in Japan.Their relationship seems solid now, but the New York Times reported that for a more than a decade Naomi’s mother, Tamaki, had little contact with her family in Japan.Roland Kirishima, a photographer who is half Japanese and Scottish, criticized some internet comments questioning if Osaka is really Japanese, because of her darker skin color.“Look at the French soccer team that won the World Cup,” he wrote on Twitter. “Half of the players are immigrants’ sons or multi-racial. I’m surprised many people in Japan are still obsessed with racial purity. It’s 21st century already. Please overcome this type of insular prejudice.”It looks like Japan has taken at least a first step.

Whether with Tampa Bay, Toronto, Detroit or Boston, his team had never won a playoff game he started before this year.But the Red Sox have now won his last three postseason starts, including the ALCS Game 5 clincher against the defending World Series champion Astros in which he pitched six shutout innings.“I get it, the numbers and all that. But this guy is a great pitcher,” Boston manager Alex Cora said. “He’s been one of the best pitchers in the big leagues for a while, and he cares.”On a frigid night at Fenway Park, Price held the highest-scoring team in the NL hitless through three innings and retired the last seven batters he faced. He struggled only in the fourth, loading the bases with nobody out on two singles and a walk as the Dodgers took a 2-1 lead — their first of the Series.ADVERTISEMENT Tim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crown Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award Nadine Lustre’s phone stolen in Brazil “I’m so happy for him and proud of him,” Martinez said. “Going through all that criticism that he’s been getting here, to bounce back to what he’s been doing.”And the Red Sox batters did what they’ve been doing: scoring with two outs.In an uncanny stretch of clutch hitting that’s been their hallmark throughout their 108-win season, the Red Sox scored all their runs in Game 2 with two outs, including a three-run rally in the fifth that only started after Hyun-Jin Ryu set down Ian Kinsler and Jackie Bradley Jr.Christian Vazquez singled, Betts did the same and Andrew Benintendi worked the count full before walking to load the bases, chasing Ryu. Ryan Madson walked Steve Pearce to tie the game before Martinez, who had 130 RBIs in the regular season, dropped a flare in front of right fielder Yasiel Puig for a two-run single that gave Boston a 4-2 lead.Price and three relievers retired the last 16 Los Angeles batters, with Craig Kimbrel closing out the Dodgers in the ninth for his sixth save this postseason . Not since Don Larsen’s 1956 perfect game for the Yankees against the Brooklyn Dodgers has an AL team retired as many consecutive hitters to finish a World Series game, according to STATS.“We had him. We had him on the ropes,” Los Angeles manager Dave Roberts said. “The difference is they got the big hit when they needed, and we didn’t.”Boston’s other run came on Kinsler’s two-out single in the second. The Red Sox, who led the majors in two-out runs in the regular season, have scored 36 of their 68 runs this postseason — and nine of their 12 in the Series — with two outs.The last 10 teams to win the first two games of the World Series — and 16 of the last 17 — have gone on to win it all. And the NL West champions will need to do it against a team that has won six straight postseason games and five in a row on the road.“We’re just in the middle of the World Series,” Dodgers first baseman David Freese said. “We’re down 2-0, we get that. We just understand that Game 3 is a necessity, just like Game 2.”One night after getting four hits, Red Sox left fielder Andrew Benintendi made a leaping, spread-eagle catch to rob Brian Dozier of an extra-base hit leading off the fifth. With the ball tailing away from him toward the corner, Benintendi jumped, kicked and pulled it in a few feet in front of the Green Monster scoreboard. View comments
Since the meeting (pictured) hosted by President George M. Weah on Unification Day, May 14, 2019 to establish dialogue with the Council of Patriots, all other attempts by the government have failed.As 12 opposition political parties urge Gov’t, CoP, Judicial and Legislative bodies appear to be undermining space for dialogue to take place. With barely 4 days to the “Save the State” peaceful protest, scheduled for June 7, a dozen opposition political parties have urged the government and Council of Patriots (CoP) to pursue dialogue to overcome the impasse in the interest of the ordinary people.Said parties include the All Liberian Party (ALP), All Liberia Coalition Party (ALCOP), Grassroot Democratic Party of Liberia (GDPL), Movement for Democracy and Reconstruction (MDR), Liberian National Union (LINU) and the United People Party (UPP).The ALP, has already declared support, through its standard bearer, Mr. Benoni W. Urey, for the Save The State protest. However the party appears to also be leaving room for dialogue, as expressed through the signature of its vice standard bearer, Mr. Alexander Duopu. The ALP is one of the four collaborating opposition parties mounting pressure on the Weah administration to refrain from circumventing laws such as tenured positions and the national code of conduct. The other 3 political parties which ALP is collaborating with, Unity Party, Alternative National Congress and the Liberty Party are not signatories to the 12-party resolution for dialogue.At a news conference on Friday in Monrovia, Aaron S. M. Wesseh, who read the statement on behalf of the 12 parties, said “it’s our conviction that no amount of expressions of anger or acts of violence can change anything in the political landscape of this country and therefore insist that dialogue is the best way forward.”Roster of some of the political parties and their respective representatives who signed the statement, calling for dialogue between the Government and the Council of Patriots.Mr. Wesseh said the country has gone through numerous demonstrations and protests to ensure that political and public policies are transformed to meet the desire of the Liberian people.According tom him, the Liberian people are living witnesses to their own episodes including but not limited to the infamous April 14, 1979 riot, the August 22, 1984 University of Liberia (UL) students’ riot, the sad event of the November 1985 aborted invasion and the December 24, 1989 beginning of the 14-year Liberian civil war.He said all these uprisings did not bring to the Liberian people the expected desired results, therefore, “we the collective of diverse political interests of Liberia have seized the unique moment to make this clarion call.”Mr. Wesseh said the 12 political parties that are signatories to the resolution in pursuit of dialogue are in no way exhibiting weakness in their political objectives but rather promoting national unity and working to sustain the hard-earned fragile peace that both politicians and supporters currently enjoy.“This is a call to give peace a chance to reign throughout this nation. In our estimation, there is no call greater than the advancement of the motherland. We as a people have a cardinal responsibility to uphold this cherished aspiration,” Mr. Wesseh indicated.He said in the genuine demonstration for the quest, Liberians need to close ranks and submerge individual interests in the supreme interest of the nation and the people.“Let this call re-enforce the pledge of allegiance that we have made through our symbolism to the nation’s flag, the Lone Star. This is the time for sober reflection when the perplexing question will stimulate the thoughts of all that have gone wrong. Indeed, there are formidable challenges facing the nation,” he said.He said it should serve as an attraction for all patriotic Liberians to amicably work through collective deliberation for speedy resolution of the issues as may be raised by the organizers of the June 7 planned protest.“We want the government and the Council of Patriots to submit to the national peaceful and honest dialogue, beginning now. This modest beginning, when operationalized, will give relief to our people and avert unfavorable conditions that could undermine the peace and stability of the nation,” Mr. Wesseh said.Mr. Wesseh however, used the medium to call on government to set the stage for an inclusive national conference that will eventually follow dialogue with the Council of Patriots.“It’s our fervent hope and aspiration that government will explore every available means at its disposal to give these appeals their urgent considerations for the forward march of the nation. We are calling on the council of patriots and the government to create an enabling atmosphere for the dialogue to be executed without any hindrance,” Mr. Wesseh added.Undermining dialogue?The call for dialogue by the 12 opposition parties comes at a time when the much-heralded “Save the State” protest has gained the attention of international bodies relevant to Liberia, including the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), the African Union (AU) and the United Nations (UN). On the same day of the call by the twelve parties, the Council of Patriots were already meeting with a high-powered ECOWAS delegation which included the President of the ECOWAS Commission, Jean-Claude Kassi Brou.President George Weah discusses the pending June 7 protest with a high-powered delegation led by President of the ECOWAS Commission, Jean-Claude Kassi Brou.Since the meeting hosted by President George M. Weah on Unification Day, May 14, 2019 to establish dialogue with the Council of Patriots, all other attempts by the government have failed. Present at the May 14 meeting, were ranking officials of the UN, ECOWAS and AU, as well as officials of the Inter religious council of Liberia, the Traditional Council of Liberia and Civil Society stakeholders. Recent separate attempts over the past week by the Senate and the House of Representatives to dialogue with the protest planners did not materialize due to the Council of Patriots’ refusal to meet with either body behind closed doors as was requested by the two legislative bodies.However, ranking UN and ECOWAS officials visiting Liberia specifically concerning the June 7 protests, have been able to meet separately with the President of Liberia as well as the Council of Patriots.Meanwhile, in spite of President Weah’s acknowledgment of the constitutional right Liberians have to freedom of speech and of assembly, apparent surrogates of the government are attempting to get the Supreme Court of Liberia to place a stay order on the protest, which is protected by the 1986 Constitution of Liberia. The petitioners, known to the Court as “Citizens United to Sustain Peace and Democracy” have already filed a petition for an injunction on the protest. The Supreme Court has already written the Council of Patriots, inviting all parties to a conference on the matter.Such moves by both houses of the Legislature and by the Supreme Court have been considered by the Council of Patriots as surreptitious at least and hostile at best.“The CoP will not go to the Supreme Court. We will defy the Supreme Court,” said Henry P. Costa, a popular radio talk show host and a key member of the protest organizers. “The Court wants to be disgraced. And what the Supreme Court is doing will bring it to a place of disgrace. We will ignore the court. I am not going to the Supreme Court to negotiate my constitutional right.”Costa referred to the Supreme Court as a “George Weah Supreme Court” and a “puppet Supreme Court”. “When the CDC held protests in this town, did anybody go to the Supreme Court to stop them from protesting? We are very serious. We are not going to the Court. June 7 will hold,” he said.Legal experts argue that while the Supreme Court would be infringing on a constitutional right by simply getting involved or paying attention such a petition a prayed before it, since it is a conference, it would also be disrespectful and contemptuous on the part of the respondents (Council of Patriots, etc) not to attend the meeting. “Since it’s not a hearing but a conference, the CoP should seek legal guidance first and give the Supreme Court the benefit of the doubt instead of ignoring it altogether.”Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
Disorderly behaviour arrestThe East Coast Demerara (ECD) man admitted to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of the Georgetown Public Hospital, three days after he was arrested by Police has shown some improvement in his health.This was confirmed by 39-year-old Kalicharran Sawak’s sister, Shavani, on Friday, who stated that his internal bleeding has reduced, but he was still unresponsive.“We have seen some improvement … his bleeding stop a little, but he is still not responding to us,” the woman told Guyana Times.Sawak, who resides at Lot Three La Bonne Intention (LBI), was taken into Police custody on Thursday last (January 17) after misbehaving with family members and breaking windows at his mother’s house. He was taken to the Beterverwagting Police Station and then transferred to the Sparendaam Police Station later that day.His sister had related that her brother was scheduled to make a court appearance on Tuesday, but was a no-show when the case was called. It was then that the family was informed that he was taken to the hospital.The woman, along with her mother, Ramdai Sawak, is contending that the 39-year-old man was arrested in perfect health and he was mentally stable. As such, questions were raised as to what exactly transpired at the Police Station following his arrest.The man’s sister explained that when a visit was made to the medical facility on Tuesday, her brother was unresponsive and suffering from internal bleeding.Police had informed her that the man was creating noise, thus resulting in him being placed in a cell alone where he injured himself.The family has since retained the services of Attorney-at-Law Anil Nandlall. He has since expressed that the Police Complaints Authority would be briefed on this issue and also called on the Police to conduct an independent probe into the situation.
The Night Shelter continues to provide 24-hour service to its residents as it strives to address their social needs. The residents are also prepared for reintegration into society. A diversified programme aimed at helping them to curb the social ills which they struggle with will be rolled out in August.Probation and Social Services Officer Natasha Mansfield, who was attached to the Shelter three months ago, in an interview with the Department of Public Information, said the programme will cover several topics, including depression, substance abuse, self-care, and mental illness/mental health.Mansfield explained that when she began her job at the Night Shelter, she met with residents and held one-on-one discussions with them to determine their needs.“When I interacted with the residents, I began to understand their challenges. I found that most of them are depressed and have a mental illness. I did some counselling sessions with them, and engaged them in physical exercise and group discussions. I am aiming to commence the formal programme in August, where we’ll have formal discussions and professionals come in and talk with the residents,” Mansfield explained.The programme will begin with a concentrated focus on depression, which is most prevalent among the Night Shelter residents. This will be followed by other topics. The Probation and Social Services Officer said she would be liaising with professionals in the mental illness area to facilitate the discussion.The institution currently houses 59 residents and provides meals and other amenities. The staff complement was boosted with additional Patient Care Assistants, and a Registered Nurse is expected to be added to the staff. There were also recent upgrades to some of the facilities at the institution, including renovation of the kitchen and eating areas for staff and for male and female residents. For the first time, a security camera, fire extinguisher and wet floor signs were secured, and the institution is regularly fumigated.Imminently, an Occupational Health and Safety (OS&H) Standard for the Shelter will be developed to promote safety on the job.To date, the residents are entertained with celebrations such as the most recently observed Mother’s and Father’s Days celebrations which saw mothers and fathers being honoured.
Just when Tottenham Hotspur looked like they’d shaken off the ‘Spursy’ tag they took their eyes off the ball and were defeated by a rejuvenated Newcastle United side last weekend.Being beaten by a team in the relegation zone hurt the Spurs faithful but many had already left the ground grumbling after an uncharacteristically dismal display in the second period.Now manager Mauricio Pochettino needs to pick up his players, and the fans, who haven’t tasted victory in the Premier League since they demolished West Ham in November.Against Southampton, Belgian midfield maestro Mousa Dembele could return to the line-up to partner Eric Dier who, goal aside, looked out of sorts against the Toon, in the centre of the park, but Ryan Mason, Clinton N’Jie and Alex Pritchard will remain absent.So how will the Spurs XI line up?
