“Matches will be more exciting if the number of substitutions increases. This is very likely to happen“said a member of the executive committee. FIFA, the international governing body of football, anda has said that he wants to use the same system due to worldwide disruptions caused by the coronavirus pandemic.Last week, J-League President Mitsuru Murai said that hosting games behind closed doors is an option for the league to consider when the two major divisions resume and the season begins in the third division. At the earliest, the J-League expects to hold official matches starting in the second week of June. The league is also considering reducing the first round of the Levain Cup from six to three games and eliminating the round-trip format for the quarterfinals and semifinals. The J-League will consider allowing five substitutions instead of three when official games resume, due to the delay in the programming caused by the delay of the coronavirus, as published by the Japanese newspaper The Mainichi.The new policy would require changes to be made during three game stops., while a sixth substitute would be allowed in YBC Levain Cup matches that go into overtime. This measure, aimed at alleviating player fatigue on a condensed schedule, He was unopposed when suggested at a meeting between league operators and will be discussed by the executive committee in May..
When Rasheed Dwyer finished sixth in the 200 metres at last year’s National Senior Championships, that ended his chance to run an individual event at the World Champion-ships in Beijing, China. Despite that, Dwyer won’t be running the 100 metres at this year’s Nationals as insurance. That’s the word according to his Sprintec coach Maurice Wilson. Speaking at the recent PUMA/JAAA Jamalco meet, coach Wilson said: “No, he will not be doubling this year, but I can tell you he will be running a fast 200m somewhere along the line.” Dwyer, who turned 27 on January 29, sparkled at the Pan-Am Games in Toronto after his Nationals disaster. In the semi-finals, he reset his personal from 19.98 seconds to 19.80. That moved him past Nickel Ashmeade – 19.85, Donald Quarrie – 19.86 and Asafa Powell – 19.90 on the Jamaican all-time list. He was second in the final to fast Canadian newcomer AndrÈ DeGrasse with a silver medal run of 19.90 seconds. His form earned him a spot in Jamaica’s World 4x100m relay pool. He did a fine job running the third leg in the heats. In 2011, during his days as student-athlete at the G.C. Foster College for Physical Education, Dwyer won his pet event at the World University Games. At the 2014 Commonwealth Games, the former Camperdown High School sprinter led Warren Weir and Jason Livermore in a Jamaican medal sweep. Dwyer and superstar Usain Bolt were the only Jamaicans to go faster than 20 seconds last year, and his new personal best made him the third fastest man in the world in the 200m after Bolt and American Justin Gatlin. By contrast, his best run over 100 metres was 10.16 seconds. Five Jamaicans ran that distance in under 10 seconds flat.

– $25M plus contract signedA Municipal Market contract in excess of $25 million was on Monday signed between the Communities Ministry and BML Architects and Engineers for the continuation of rehabilitative works on the Kitty Market.Communities Minister Ronald Bulkan, along with Town Clerk Royston King (extreme right), contractor Baynard Lord (left) and two other officials from the MinistryCommunities Minister Ronald Bulkan said the contract would see the construction of 15 external and 10 internal stalls, and completion of the sanitary block, the revenue collection section and an office for the Kitty Market clerk.“We are pleased to be in a position to award this contract to the successful bidder …to allow for this project to go forward…to allow for occupation and use of this market by our vendors,” Minister Bulkan said.The rehabilitation of the Market began in 2016 by the Mayor and City Council (M&CC), but was delayed after the Council experienced constraints.Central Government stepped in providing the M&CC with $200 million in the 2018 National Budget of which $50 million has been dedicated by the Council for works on the Kitty Market.Town Clerk Royston King said this was a demonstration of Government’s commitment to the M&CC’s efforts to sustainably develop the capital city.“Stallholders, as well as residents of the Kitty community, would be very happy with this latest development,” King said. He expressed gratitude to the Government for the support in this venture.Minister Ronald Bulkan hands over a copy of the contract to Town Clerk Royston King BML Architects and Engineers is owned and operated by Baynard Lord.Only recently, vendors protested the long wait for the completion of the market. The M&CC is hoping for a March 2018 completion.
“Everyone was happy to have four cars in the race, because that was pretty much what we’ve been saying all along,” White said. “Our expectations were to have four and maybe five cars in the race. We were hoping for somebody to turn up in the top 15, and actually, when the wrecks started happening with 25laps to go, we really thought it might work out that way.” Jarrett was the highest finishing Toyota driver at Daytona. He came in 22nd. Waltrip and Dave Blaney, who drives for Bill Davis Racing, were credited with top-35 finishes. “The way it worked out, we didn’t inherit a top-15 finish,” White said. “But we got three in the top 35, so if they can just continue on with that for the next four races, then maybe we can get some guys that will be in those guaranteed positions. We’ll carry on to Fontana … keep on working and we’ll be OK.” But getting NASCAR fans to accept Toyotas in the series is going to be a challenge. It is only one obstacle the car manufacturer faces as it prepares for its first full season in the Nextel Cup Series. There is the question of how Toyota will affect the economics of NASCAR. Toyota is expected to pour record amounts of money into its programs in pursuit of race wins and championships. There is the question of teamwork. Toyota expects its three teams – Bill Davis Racing, Michael Waltrip Racing and Team Red Bull – to share information and data. And then there’s the big question of acceptance. Toyota may be based in Japan, but the Toyota Camrys are built in Kentucky. At present, they are the only model driven by Cup teams that is actually built in the United States. “But you’re not going to get that across to some people,” Jarrett said. “And I’m not going to try to, and that’s not my job or my plight to come out here and try to convince everybody that this is the right thing to do for Toyota to be involved.” Ready or not, here comes Toyota. It’s a journey that started seven years ago, when Toyota entered in the NASCAR Goody’s Dash Series. By 2004, Toyota was in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series. In three years, Toyota Tundras won 26 races, including the season-opener at Daytona, 31 poles and one championship. At the Truck Series level, there hasn’t been much discussion about whether Toyota Tundras belong racing next to Chevrolet Silverados and Ford F-150s. And it didn’t take long for Toyota to become successful. But gaining that level of success will be a little more difficult in the Cup series. “I definitely feel that they are going to be up there fighting for wins and a championship, but it just might take them a little time is all,” said Jimmie Johnson, the 2006 Nextel Cup Series champ and driver of the No. 48 Chevrolet Monte Carlo for Hendrick Motorsports. Some say Toyota can buy its way to wins. Jarrett said Toyota has no illusions about how hard it will be to win races at the Nextel Cup Series level. It will take pouring resources into research and development. It will take having engineers and mechanics with experience building and maintaining Cup cars. And it will take tapping existing teams for some of those experienced people. “When Dodge came in and Ray Evernham started his deal up, he had to go do the same thing,” Jarrett said. “To get experienced people to make sure that things start off in a pretty good mode, you have to go get some experienced people. “You can’t take all novices and rookies and bring them in and expect to be pretty good. So, you might have to pay someone a little bit more to get them to come over.” That’s what Toyota has done – to an extent. Two of the crew chiefs working on Toyota cars this year will be Matt Borland and Doug Richert. Borland was Ryan Newman’s crew chief at Penske Racing South. Richert last worked as crew chief for Greg Biffle’s team at Roush Racing. Richert is also known for working on Dale Earnhardt’s championship teams of the 1980s at Richard Childress Racing. Jarrett insists Toyota didn’t overpay to lure experienced professionals to their teams. Toyota did, however, help bring in some very talented people. “Is Toyota coming in and stepping things up from an engineering standpoint? Absolutely,” Jarrett said. “That’s where they are going to step everything up. Dodge did the same thing when they came in, they had a huge engineering staff and a lot of technology there, and that’s where their dollars were.” Johnson said he expects Toyota to aggressively pursue personnel and resources. “Chevrolet, Ford, Dodge, all of these teams have been in the sport for a long, long time,” said Johnson, who drives for Hendrick Motorsports. “They all have money. Mr. (Rick) Hendrick has his finances and program in place. It takes time. You just can’t come in – we know Toyota wants to succeed, and they will spend the dollars to do it – but it takes time to get the people, equipment, the staff put together and get the momentum going.” Jarrett said working with the other two teams was the model Toyota presented to him from the first meeting. “Even before we got here to start testing on the racetrack, that was happening, from other tests at tracks when we were going to Kentucky or we were going to Nashville or even Lakeland (Fla.),” Jarrett said. “And Red Bull was the same way, Bill Davis the same way. So information is being shared, and we feel like that’s our quickest way to get over some of the hurdles that we have.” Apparently the Toyota teams are in agreement that the best way to be successful is to work together as closely as possible in the early stages of the season. “You know, there will come a point in time that some of that will break away,” Jarrett said. “But we have a ways to go before we get to that point, and I think everyone understands that and is very much willing to work together.” With resources, personnel, cooperation and experience, Toyota looks like it has everything in place to produce wins at the race track. How quickly that will happen is anybody’s guess. “I think all of the talk is over,” said Kevin Harvick, driver of the No. 29 Chevrolet Monte Carlo for Richard Childress Racing. “It’s time to finally go race, and we don’t have to hear about (how) Toyota is going to change the sport and how this is going to happen and how that’s going to happen. We’re going to actually see what’s going to happen.” Road to the series Pouring in resources Three for one firstname.lastname@example.org (818) 713-3715 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

The Japanese car manufacturer is making its debut this year in NASCAR’s top division, joining the ranks of American powerhouses Ford, Chevrolet and Dodge. “We could get into the argument about where the Ford Fusion is built. Every one of them are built in Mexico,” Jarrett said. “The Monte Carlos are built in Canada. So we could go through all that stuff and see who is right and who is wrong, but there are a lot of Toyotas that are built in the United States.” International car manufacturers have shied away from racing in NASCAR for more than 50 years. But Toyota has made the long, patient journey to reach the Nextel Cup Series ranks. With three teams and seven drivers, Toyota Camrys will race alongside the Cup versions of Ford Fusions, Chevrolet Monte Carlos and Dodge Chargers. “I think it’s good Toyota is coming in,” said Chip Ganassi, who owns a three-car Cup team powered by Dodge engines. “I have some experience with them in Indy car racing over the years, and they’ll come in and they’ll do it right. They’ll do it in a big way, and the fact of the matter is the sport obviously needs some new interest and new excitement, and I think Toyota is going to provide that.” Four Toyota drivers qualified for the season-opening Daytona 500. Michael Waltrip, owner of a three-car Toyota team, was caught in a cheating scandal that saw him lose his car, his crew chief and 100 driver points. His crew chief was also fined $100,000 and his team lost 100 owner points. Despite the controversy, Lee White, senior vice president and general manager of Toyota Racing Development, U.S.A., said the Toyota teams had a good week at Daytona. Some will say Toyota has no business being in an American stock car series. Some will say NASCAR is an American sport and has no room for foreign influences. Some will say Toyota should stick to racing in other internationally accepted arenas of motor sports, such as Formula One and the American Le Mans Series. Jarrett, who made the switch from Robert Yates Racing’s Fords to Michael Waltrip Racing’s Toyotas, said NASCAR fans need to embrace the change rather than fight it.
The increase came during revelations the average DWP worker makes nearly $77,000 a year – nearly 20 percent more than the average civilian city worker. Most neighborhood council representatives said their communities were against the rate hike, mainly because of a lack of clear rate information from the DWP. “DWP is a public company, and as its owner we have a right to know what’s going on,” said Jack Humphreville, chairman of the DWP Oversight Committee. “The way the rate was spun conflicted with the what’s really going on.” Humphreville said hidden fees – such as energy cost increases that are automatically passed on to customers – could leave many people paying a lot more than the $1.75 a month more that DWP officials touted. HOLLYWOOD – Neighborhood council members Saturday questioned a controversial Department of Water and Power rate increase that many said was confusing – and misleading. “Our council voted down this increase because there was just too much we didn’t understand,” Woodland Hills representative August Steurer said at a monthly neighborhood council congress in Hollywood. “The average person doesn’t understand the DWP; (it has its) own language.” This week, the DWP board approved its first rate increase in 15 years. The plan would increase electric rates by 9 percent over the next three years, and water rates would increase 6 percent over two years. “You be the judge,” he said. The rate increase hits Angelenos on top of an automatic bump in rates approved last year to pay for energy-efficiency programs. Humphreville said DWP customers should not be surprised if their bills were 25 percent higher in the next two years. Jeffery Peltola, director of budget, rates and efficiency for the DWP, said the rate increases were desperately needed to maintain quality service. “If we don’t fix things now, make no mistake, we will be in crisis mode, and it will be more expensive,” Peltola said. Several neighborhood representatives suggested appointing a DWP customer advocate to avoid future communication problems. They also demanded better accountability from the giant city utility. “There are so many areas that we weren’t told about, so many things we don’t understand,” said Dan Wiseman of the Van Nuys Neighborhood Council. “We need one person that can advocate for the average person.” San Fernando Valley neighborhood councils did celebrate one victory: A Valley rate zone that will allow Valley DWP customers to use more power without paying more for it. The Valley zone will allow customers to remain in lower-cost rate tiers for longer periods of energy use. For example, a Valley homeowner will pay 13 cents an hour to use up to 1,500 kilowatts during the summer, versus 15 cents an hour for a West L.A. homeowner who uses a third less power. “In the Valley, the climate is different,” said Leonard Shaffer, a Tarzana neighborhood council member. “Air-conditioning is not luxury for most – it’s a necessity.” email@example.com (661) 257-5254160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Republic of Ireland manager Martin O’Neill says he has not made any promises to Donegal man Shay Given about his starting prospects.Shay Given – back in the Irish squad.The Aston Villa goalkeeper, 38, retired from international football after Ireland’s Euro 2012 disaster, but now finds himself in contention to start Ireland’s Euro 2016 qualifying campaign after a surprise recall to O’Neill’s 27-man squad.The squad also contains goalkeepers David Forde, Keiren Westwood and Rob Elliot. O’Neill said: “He still has that desire to come and play but no promises have been made whatsoever.“He’s going to come here for a few days. Aston Villa have given him permission to do so and I’ll have a look at it.“In his own view, he retired at the time, obviously disappointed with the way things had gone at the European Championship. Sometimes you do something and you feel as if maybe you’ve got something left to give.”The Lifford man, who has 125 international caps, says he knows there are no guarantees. He said: “There are no guarantees. There are no demands from me. I read somewhere that I demanded to play – that’s all rubbish.“I am here to try help the group and try to get us qualified. We have some very tough games coming up. Hopefully I can do that.”But he added “I wouldn’t be here if I didn’t think I was sharp enough to play.”Shay admitted he missed the ‘buzz’ of playing for his country.He said: “I probably missed it as much as anything, the honour of playing for Ireland and the buzz you get and the privilege of playing for your country. “You miss that, and you are a long time retired, so you have a long time to look back. It’s about giving it another go and playing a few more games and trying to help the country as best I can.“I don’t want to have any regrets when I do hang up my boots. That was sort of eating away at me as well.”SHAY: I KNOW I AM NOT GUARANTEED A STARTING PLACE was last modified: September 1st, 2014 by StephenShare 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)Tags:goalkeeperMartin O’NeillRepublic of IrelandShay Given
