LocalNews Book penned in honor of Nathalie Murphy by: Dominica Vibes News – December 4, 2015 President Charles Savarin receives a copy of the book from Mrs MurphyA book has been penned in honor of the Executive Director of the Dominica Association of Persons with Disabilities (DAPD), Nathalie Murphy.The book, entitled ‘Treasure In Our Midst’ was written by Roman Catholic Priest, Reverend Father Clement Jolly. It was launched during a ceremony to mark International Day for People with Disabilities on Thursday 3 December 2015 at the DAPD’s headquarters in Goodwill.Fr Jolly said the story of persons with disabilities has been a very long and painful one, particularly the visually challenged, who have suffered terribly. “At first they were treated as sub-human beings, people to be despised, to be shunned and at best to be pitied. They were often made to live a life alone. Later in the west, particularly under the influence of Christianity, some care and assistance was given to them. Even so, they were marginalized and isolated. They were made to live a life away from other people.” Author of ‘Treasure In Our Midst’, Father Clement JollyFr Jolly described Mrs. Murphy as being a light and blessing to Dominica and the rest of the world. “We seem to ignore the fact that there are things greater than material achievement. What shines out in Nathalie, is first of all self-mastery and self-conquest. To my mind, she has done more than to climb Mount Everest, or swim across the English Channel; she has given us a true display of self-conquest and has done it brilliantly”.Mrs. Murphy said she felt “real honoured” for the auspicious occasion. “I want in particular to extend my profound thanks and appreciation to Fr Clement Jolly for taking on this project and writing the book so that others out there will know about some of the things that have happened to me over the years”. She noted that the book is very interesting with a lot of information covering the history of blindness.Copies of the Book can be purchased at the DAPD’S office on Canal Lane, Goodwill.last_img read more

Holder: Windies have work to do

first_imgDUBLIN, Ireland (CMC):Captain Jason Holder has turned his attention to West Indies’ one-week camp in Southampton, as the Caribbean side looked to correct the flaws exposed in their defeat to Bangladesh in the Tri-Nation Series.West Indies lost both group games to Bangladesh and then suffered a five-wicket defeat to the Asian side in Friday’s final at The Village, after failing to defend 210 in a match reduced to 24 overs per side. Their two wins in the tournament came against hosts Ireland.They travelled to the Rose Bowl yesterday to start their final preparation for the World Cup, and will be joined by members of the squad who missed the Tri-Nation Series due to Indian Premier League commitments.“We’ve got some time in Southampton before we prepare for those two official warm-up games of the World Cup,” Holder said following his side’s loss.“So there’s more than enough time to put things right and for those guys to come in and get acclimatised to the conditions and, hopefully, we can hit the ground running come our first warm-up game.”Sent in, West Indies finished on 152 for one with Man of the Series Shai Hope top-scoring with 74 and opening partner Sunil Ambris getting an unbeaten 69, the pair posting 144 for the first wicket.Rain caused a five-hour break in the innings with West Indies well poised on 131 without loss in the 21st over, and they managed only another 21 runs from the 23 balls available. FASTEST ODI HALF-CENTURY Opener Soumya Sarkar then lashed a sparkling 66 off 41 deliveries in a 59-run opening stand with Tamim Iqbal (18), before adding a further 49 for the third wicket with Mushfiqur Rahim (36).When Bangladesh lost three wickets for 34 runs in the space of 25 balls to slump to 143 for five in the 16th over, Mosaddek Hossain (52 not out) struck the fastest ODI half-century by a Bangladeshi in a 70-run, unbroken partnership with Mahmudullah (19 not out) to stun West Indies.Holder conceded his side had been outplayed by Bangladesh and that the Windies had not been quite up to scratch.“They played well. I think their openers got them off to a really good start and they laid the foundation for them,” Holder said.“We were probably a little flat in the field at the beginning. We dropped a chance, had a few fumbles in the field which didn’t help. Overall, it was not the performance we were looking for.”Following the camp, West Indies travel to Bristol where they face New Zealand on May 26 in their first official warm-up before taking on South Africa two days later at the same venue.They clash with Pakistan in their World Cup opener on May 31 at Trent Bridge in Nottingham.last_img read more

Watford player explains why loan went terribly wrong – Reveals Pearson…

first_imgFirst, however, there was the matter of getting his work permit, which he now has, thanks to his 16 caps for Venezuela and a bunch of loans, and there was hope he could finally establish himself at Vicarage Road three years after his arrival.However, a move to Eupen in Belgium was arranged late on in the summer transfer window to get him the regular football Javi Gracia couldn’t promise at Watford.It began well enough, with the player appearing in the starting XI for the first four games before disappearing completely, only to reappear once for seven minutes in a 1-0 loss to Zulte Waregem towards the end of November.Speaking to Meridiano on Instagram Live, the player explained what happened.Embed from Getty ImagesHe said: “I didn’t like some of the exercises the manager had put in place at Eupen in training sessions. They seemed pointless to me and after that discussion, he didn’t call me up anymore. I regretted that action, and I went to see him like a man to apologise”.However, with just six appearances to his name in the first half of the season, he was swiftly sent back to Watford after asking the Eupen manager to let him leave (he accepted), where he was meant to feature under Nigel Pearson.He told Meridiano that ‘at his return to Watford, he met up with the manager, who told him he was counting on him, but he first needed to get back in shape having gone a month without training’.Unfortunately for Peñaranda, the Covid-19 pandemic stopped all that in its tracks, and he’ll now have to wait longer to see if he can finally break through long term in the Hornets’ squad.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this City-Building Game is a Must-Have.
