We can’t afford to have our best players not being out on the park – Adams

first_imgBy Clifton RossCRICKET West Indies (CWI) Director of Cricket, Jimmy Adams called for players to focus more on raising their fitness levels, following the recent omissions of the in-form duo of Shimron Hetmyer and Evin Lewis ahead of the upcoming Sri Lanka series.Both Lewis and Hetmyer were left out of the Windies squad who will travel to Sri Lanka in a few days, following the pair of left-handers failing to attain the new required fitness level marks.Adams, a former West Indies captain/wicketkeeper, told Chronicle Sport during his visit to Guyana yesterday ahead of Round 4’s Jaguars/Scorpions bout; that the new fitness standards will make players more durable and match-fit in the future, as CWI seeks to raise the standards of fitness across the region.“There has always been a fitness policy implemented by the board; players have been aware that this aspect of the policy would have been implemented with some of them expecting it sooner. The only difference is that going back to about September 2018, the board decided to tie in the fitness standards for selection,” said Adams.A veteran of 127 ODIs and 54 Tests during the 90s, Adams confirmed that the new mark of the YO-YO fitness test is a minimum of 40. That score, according to Adams is the CWI’s benchmark for selection but he added that players can set personal targets as he wants to see the Yo-Yo Tests yielding scores of 50 or more in the future.“We wanted to make sure that everything was in place in terms of transparency. It’s unfortunate that some players have not met the minimal standards indicated to them, but hopefully we can get them up to that standard as soon as possible,” stated the director.Despite higher fitness standards being implemented these days, Adams said the response, however, has been great throughout the region as most of the Caribbean players are now statistically above the required level and that’s something the CWI expects more of.He closed by referencing Test batsman John Campbell who scored runs in Ireland but was unable to meet the fitness requirements needed to perform at the highest level and as such was omitted from the team. This strategy according to Adams is crucial as it outlines the importance of remaining fit as well as in playing form.“We can’t afford to have our best players not being out on the park, so I’m looking forward to seeing these lads keep their fitness levels where it should be and make sure that we can keep them on the park longer,” Adams ended.last_img read more

Residents want change in Caltrans road project

first_img“We’re finding out about this thing last,” said Carrie Scoville, a member of the Central San Pedro Neighborhood Council who led discussions at Tuesday night’s informal meeting. Caltrans representatives were unable to attend Tuesday’s meeting, but Caltrans spokeswoman Maria Raptis said that the agency tried to inform residents about the landscaping work before it began. “We did go door-to-door handing out fliers to those who are most impacted by the project,” she said, defining that group as the “immediate neighbors.” Scoville and the approximately 10 residents, most of whom live adjacent the area being landscaped, suggested that, among other things, Caltrans plant low-maintenance vegetation, notify neighbors before work is done, put down fabric to guard against wind and water erosion and prioritize work to plant near houses first. “Caltrans now knows that we exist,” Scoville said, noting that agency representatives are taking another look at their plans after getting negative feedback from residents at an Aug. 14 neighborhood council meeting. By Rachel Jones STAFF WRITER A small group of San Pedro residents dissatisfied with Caltrans handling of the ongoing planting and irrigation project along SR-47 and the 110 freeway met and suggested changes in the plan earlier this week. The goal of the $2 million overhaul is to improve the roadside landscaping, both functionally and aesthetically, on Route 47 from Gaffey Street to Harbor Boulevard, and on Route 110 from Gaffey Street to Channel Street. Clearing of the old plants and brush – which neighbors say was neglected for years – began this summer and upset residents who say they were not informed of the plans. Raptis confirmed that the plans are being modified slightly. “I wouldn’t say it’s being revamped, but we are changing the placement of the trees,” she said. “Some \ want shade and some want the view, so we’re going to be placing them differently.” As for implementing the suggestions made by those at Tuesday’s meeting, Raptis said they are open to ideas but must also abide by agency conventions. “Community input is very important to Caltrans in all of our activities, but there is a balance to what we must achieve,” she said. The Caltrans project will be discussed at the Sept. 11 Central San Pedro Neighborhood Council meeting, at 6:30 p.m. in a new location at the Port of Los Angeles High School auditorium. rachel.jones@dailybreeze.com160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

CUTLIFFE – “OUTSOURCING OF MEDICAL CARD REVIEWS PLAYING WITH PEOPLE’S HEALTH”

first_imgIndependent candidate and member of Friends of Letterkenny Hospital, Peter Cutliffe has claimed that the outsourcing of Medical-card reviews to a German Company away from the HSE is playing with people’s life’s. Cutliffe is outraged, following the disclosure that the outsourcing of Medical-card reviews will now be the responsibility of a German company.An angered Cutliffe told Donegal Daily, “I understand employees of the Company have no background in Social care, no Garda clearances and almost certainly have no knowledge or empathy with the circumstances of a medical -card applicant. “I have spoken to people under active treatment who are telling me that their applications are now taking longer to process, which is adding more cost and stress to applicants.“The HSE have admitted that they are pursuing the over-70s and discretionary medical card holders to provide proof of eligibility, and I believe that this is morally wrong.Cutliife added, “The outsourcing of Medical reviews to a “faceless body” removes the ability for an applicant to have their medical card application fairly assessed and will put enormous financial and emotional stress on people.Cutliffe concluded, “This is yet another example of Government decimating and demoralising our public servants and the latest example of Centralisation of public services not working after the SUSI grants fiasco, delays in driving licence applications and the privatisation of our water services to Irish Water.
