Champions League rules: Changes in substitutes, yellow cards and penalties

first_imgCHANGE is afoot as we head into a new season of Champions League football.Liverpool are set to defend the crown they dramatically won way back in June – but there’s a number of key rule changes that you need to know about for the big kick-off.2 Liverpool are out to defend their Champions League titleCredit: News Group Newspapers LtdWhat are the new Champions League rules?AFTER a season of high drama in the 2018/19 Champions League, this season the competition will see a number of key rule changes.These are designed to combat a number of minor issues in the sport.The new rules are as follows:Free-kicksAttacking players can no longer infiltrate defensive walls of three or more players at free-kicks. Instead, the attacking side must be at least one metre away from the wall or concede an indirect free-kick.Goal kicks and free-kicks inside your own box no longer have to leave the penalty area to be “in play” – although the other side are not allowed inside the area until the ball has been made live.Drop ballsDrop balls can now be given straight to the goalkeeper if play was stopped inside the box. Outside the box, the ball will be dropped for the team that last touched it and all other players from both teams must be four metres away. HandballIf an attacking player uses his hand/arm to either score or create a goal-scoring chance, even if accidentally, it will be a handball offence and the goal wiped out.Any incident of the ball striking the arm ABOVE shoulder height will be handball, unless the player kicks/heads it against themselves.Handball will be deemed if any player has made themselves “unnaturally bigger” – e.g by throwing their arms out.2 VAR has been a talking point after it’s introduction to the Premier LeagueCredit: ReutersPenaltiesAt a penalty, the goalkeeper now needs to have only one foot on the line when the kick is taken. Keepers are not allowed to touch the post, bar or net before the kick is taken.SubstitutionsA substituted player MUST leave the pitch at the nearest point, rather than only on half-way as before. This should cut down time-wasting.In a change to Uefa regulations, up to 12 players will be allowed on the bench for European finals.Yellow and red cardsCoaches and managers will now be handed red and yellow cards at all levels for misconduct. This happened in the EFL this season but not the Premier League.Coin tossThe side winning the toss will have choice of kick-off OR ends.

NZR hold Cheika in limbo over Samu

first_imgThere are five uncapped players in Cheika’s 33-man squad but Samu who signed with a two-year deal with the Brumbies this week isn’t one of them.Rugby Australia had submitted an official request to New Zealand Rugby for the release of the Australian born Samu but approval was yet to come through.While World Rugby’s regulations force the release of players for Test duty in June, there is a sub-clause that allows unions to deny such requests when the player holds dual eligibility.”I have been told at this point I can’t select him. But there is a spot for him there,” Cheika said.”At this point, it is in other’s hands.”I am not really involved in that part of it but I am hoping that there will be some more clarity about that (on Thursday).”While there is still hope Melbourne-born Samu will be cleared in time to take on Ireland, it would be entirely at New Zealand Rugby’s discretion.The 26-year-old is also eligible for the All Blacks through residency.While World Rugby’s regulation nine forces the release of players for Test duty in June, there is a sub-clause that allows them to deny such requests when the player holds dual eligibility.If Samu isn’t made available, Cheika said newcomer Caleb Timu and Lukhan Tui were possible contenders to play at No.6 for the series opener in Brisbane on 9 June.last_img read more

A Refined Image of Liberia

first_imgWhen asked to describe Liberia in one word, many people choose to portray Liberia as being “war torn”.But the war is over. Gone are the days where Liberia is seen as a broken structure that was once thrown off the face of the earth and has now been abruptly placed back.Liberia has been seen through the eyes of women, children, men and boys who know the days and nights of poverty, frustrating infrastructure, unseen development and is now seen through the eyes of those who want to make their country a better place.It is upon this vision that Kriterion Monrovia, a student-run project at the University of Liberia, coordinated a 3 day film festival and two day workshop from Feb 21-23, 2014 to some of the film creators in Liberia.Pandora Hodge, project coordinator for Kriterion Monrovia, described how hosting a film festival for 3 days helped encourage film students to come out and show Liberia’s real image through film.“What we are trying to do is show different sides of Liberia. Many times when people show movies and documentaries they mostly focus on the war. We are trying to leave from that part of it and show that the war has been over for almost 11 years now. We want to show the other side of Liberia and what the young people are doing to help make their environment and culture better and to create something more fun and relaxed,” she said.On the first day of the festival and film training workshop, 5 different workshops on culture identity, advanced editing, marketing of your movie and acting were held free of charge in different locations. Some big film related names such as videographer Derrick Snyder, choreographer Dr. Dawn Cooper Barnes, actor Omanza Shaw, iconic Liberian cultural figure Kona Khasu Sr. and Hollywood actor Jared Benjamin Lambert were amongst the trainers.“[What] Kriterion is trying to do is give people the feeling of an outhouse cinema, but in order to do that we want to make people aware of it first. We are also promoting a lot of filmmakers and are offering workshops. We want to improve the works of these local and international facilitators who have good knowledge in these areas as well.  We’ve partnered with the Accountability Lab who gives training to young Liberian film makers,” Pandora added.After the completion of the two days of workshops, Kriterion held screenings of Liberian feature films such as “Smell no taste”, “Cry of the pepper bird”, “A story of Liberia” and “The first grader”.  Students from the workshop were also able to showcase their work.“People are getting aware of Liberian films and putting them on the front page,” says Pandora. “We want people to present their movies not because we want to get money out of it (everything we are doing is free of charge) but we are creating an awareness that, today or tomorrow, people will know the producer and will want to buy your movie.”Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Linden municipality seeks to partner with US Embassy in achieving SDGs

first_imgThe Municipality of the Linden Mayor and Town Council (LM&TC) is seeking to partner with the United States Embassy in achieving its Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Last Thursday, newly appointed US Ambassador to Guyana, Sarah-Ann Lynch paid a courtesy call to the office of Linden Mayor Waneka Arrindell, during which this among other initiatives was discussed.US Ambassador to Guyana, Sarah-Ann Lynch meets Linden Mayor Waneka ArrindellThe SDGs are a combination of 17 global goals set out by the United Nations General Assembly to be achieved by 2030. It includes, among other goals, the movement towards zero hunger, no poverty and gender equality, however, Arrindell said the Linden municipality will be working towards the goals of quality education, clean water and sanitation as well as sustainable communities and cities. This, she noted, was advanced during the meet with the Ambassador.“We spoke about the Sustainable Development Goals that we want to start teaching to the community of Linden so as to change the perspectives of how we live… it talks about sustainable development, water and sanitation. And so we do want to embark on training within the schools in terms of disposal and separation of garbage within the school system, and of course, we want to look at branding in front of the market; that gives education to the people of Linden on what these Sustainable Development Goals are because, of course, Guyana has a target to meet by 2030 [which includes a] majority of these goals,” the Mayor said.She added that the municipality will be looking at how Linden can play a major role, in terms of what can be changed within the community in order to have these targeted goals become a reality. Arrindell said since the Embassy has a strong focus on education, it is her hope that it continues to assist within the Linden school system in terms of the sanitation and waste management initiatives.She noted that the two sides also engaged in talks about some of the projects which the Embassy is presently working along with the community on and continued collaboration.“We spoke about how can we continue to collaborate. And so the Ambassador would have pledged her continued support. Since we got in here, the American Government has been working closely with Linden Mayor and Town Council. I’ve been able to receive a five weeks training on Local Government Management through the American Embassy. So there has been continued collaboration and I’m happy to know that that collaboration would continue throughout our stint as we work together with the Ambassador and with the Government of the United States of America”, Arrindell noted.In outlining ongoing collaborations which fall under the US Embassy’s umbrella, the Mayor pointed to annual medical outreaches through the Humanitarian Assistance Programme (HAP). She said the team has also been assisting with sports development in terms of the distribution of sports equipment to various schools and community centres.“…and I know that they’re continuing with some health work in Linden. They’re consistent, every six months there’s a new batch that comes in and every six months they work with us on some sort of project. This year, I think they have one more health programme to complete before they leave”, she noted.Arrindell also alluded to the ongoing New Horizons projects in the community which will see the construction of a Women’s Home in Linden and two community centre grounds which have since commenced. She added that the Peace Corps has been re-introduced into the community after being absent for some time. This, she noted, consists of two teachers who are presently working within the school system.“The Americans have been on the ground for a while now, in terms of giving and they’re supporting the Linden community, and of course, we must say how grateful we are for that,” Arrindell said.

Judge isn’t impressed by Numero Uno case

first_imgFederal prosecutors in the racketeering case linked to Numero Uno markets – including one in San Pedro – got an earful Tuesday from the presiding judge, who indicated their case is in serious trouble. The owner of the Los Angeles-based chain, George Torres- Ramos, 50, along with his 53-year-old brother, Manuel, and others, are charged in a 59-count indictment with murder, solicitation of murder, bribery of a public official, harboring illegal aliens, tax violations and other offenses. But U.S. District Judge Stephen Wilson said were the government’s investigation completed Tuesday, he would “seriously consider” a motion for a judgment of acquittal. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREPettersson scores another winner, Canucks beat Kings“This is one of the more disappointing prosecutions I’ve encountered in my experience,” Wilson said at Tuesday morning’s hearing. “This is amazing to me. What’s going on here?” Wilson’s outburst came shortly after Assistant U.S. Attorney Timothy Searight argued that George Torres-Ramos’ son and co-defendant, Steven, tried to join his father’s criminal enterprise when he assaulted a store employee over a debt and hunted down a man who carjacked him. “So far, you’re shooting with blanks,” he told Searight. Searight replied that wiretaps and witnesses would prove the allegations, but the government has not finished its investigation. “I’ve never seen a prosecutor head south so quickly,” Wilson said. “Please be seated.” Tuesday’s hearing is not the first time Wilson has openly criticized the government’s case. On Nov. 5, he said it was “on very thin ice.” Attorneys for the Torres- Ramos brothers filed motions requesting that Wilson dismiss the racketeering charges against the two. Wilson has not yet ruled on their motions. Wilson also postponed ruling on motions to dismiss charges against other defendants charged in the case, including George Luk, 58, a city commissioner. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Jesters upended by Mater Dei

first_imgSt. Joseph High girls soccer coach Eddie Perez knew this early-season stretch would be tough.
