first_img fitness level Last season’s beaten Inter-secondary Schools Sports Association (ISSA)-FLOW Manning Cup finalists, Charlie Smith High, cruised to a perfect four wins from as many matches with a comfortable 3-0 victory over St Andrew Technical (STATHS) at the Anthony Spaulding Sports Complex yesterday. They sit atop Group D with 12 points. They have scored 13 goals, while conceding once. Despite having a new-look team, Charlie Smith played with their customary flair in front of a passionate Arnett Gardens crowd, which cheered them for the full 90 minutes. The players left the best for last yesterday. In the second minute of injury time, Omario Fisher struck a 35 metres shot, which lit up the back of the net and left everyone talking about his moment of brilliance. His shot gave goalkeeper Jeadino Waite no chance. It was a case of hard work paying off for Fisher. “It was good and perfect. I was working for this (goal) a very long time,” said Fisher, who has notched three goals in three appearances in his first year of Manning Cup. “More and more goals is what I want for the season for the entire team and the staff,” stressed Fisher. It was an even contest leading up to the opening goal, when Ashawn Ricketts sent Charlie Smith ahead in the 56th minute after the goalkeeper failed to collect cleanly. Zamario Sinclair doubled their lead in the 60th minute. Coach Jerome Waite believes his team proved much fitter than their opponents. “The game wasn’t the best in the first half. We still have a lot of work to do in terms of decision-making, but after 60 minutes in the game, you could see where the fitness level of the Charlie Smith team came to life while the opponents faltered in that area,” he told The Sunday Gleaner. “The talent pool is minimal, based on what you have seen. It is not the best Charlie Smith team, but what they are showing is that they have a lot of character and fighting spirit. We expect them to continue as the season progresses,” Waite added. Meanwhile, STATHS coach, Alrick Clarke, said it wasn’t a bad performance, but thought “a few errors” cost them the game. “Hopefully, we will rebound again. This might have been our toughest game of the season,” Clarke assessed..

Sprint champion Stars again

No Comments on Sprint champion Stars again

first_imgNewly crowned champion trainer Wayne DaCosta continued his dominance of the major trophy races in recent months when POKER STAR won the St Catherine Cup open allowance feature over 1100 metres at Caymanas Park yesterday to confirm his status as the country’s top sprinter.Installed a 4-5 favourite, with Robert Halledeen aboard, POKER STAR, coming from the number-one post position under topweight of 57.0kg, chased the fleet-footed BUZZ NIGHTMARE in the backstretch before getting the inside run and the lead when ‘BUZZ’ drifted out entering the straight.Under a bustling ride from Halledeen, the four-year-old bay gelding by Liquidity out of Buyabook kept on strongly in front to stave off the ever-present CAMPESINO (7-5) under new champion Shane Ellis on the inside by a length, covering the distance in the good time of 1:05.2 behind splits of 22.4 and 45.1 on a slow surface.Owned by Alexander Haber and bred by Y.S. (1955) Limited, POKER STAR, according to DaCosta, has come on a ton after disappointing over longer distances during the 2015 classic campaign but really wanted to sprint.”This is a horse who won twice over 1300 metres in 1:17.2, and having won the Glen Mills Caribbean Sprint championship behind a fast time in his previous race on November 14, knew he was ready for all comers in the sprint department … . His next race could be in February, and we will take it from there,” said the 15-time champion trainer, who saddled three winners on the 10-race programme.The others were 3-5 favourite CRUISING MOTION (Halledeen up) in the second race for maiden three-year-olds, and BIG GEORGE, a 1-5 favourite in the very next race over 1200 metres, with former champion Omar Walker aboard.Walker, who also won the opening race for high claimers aboard 9-5 favourite ITALIANO for trainer Neive Graham to complete a double, shared the riding honours with Halledeen on a day when POKER STAR was one of five winning favourites. The lightly raced MEDICAL INSTINCT at 20-1 in the sixth race for maiden five-year-olds and up provided the day’s major upset.last_img read more

St Rose’s High School to be demolished next week

No Comments on St Rose’s High School to be demolished next week

first_imgThe commencement for the demolition of the aged wooden St Rose’s High School is set to begin on Monday, where the building will be torn down to make room for the much awaited modernised building.Information dispatched from the institution’s Board of Governors revealed the works were scheduled during the August vacation to prevent any incidences since the students would not be present at the worksite. Meanwhile, the tearing down of the building is expected to last for four weeks under the guidance of PD Constructing Inc.This process will be limited primarily to the aged wooden section and any other relevant adjoining areas that are in a state of disrepair; and which are also slated for reconstruction. The reconstruction project is expected to take place immediately after the demolition exercise by Courtney Benn Contracting Services Ltd, and will last for an additional 24 months.The intended new replacement structure will incorporate several aspects of the original school building design and will integrate the design of the Marian and other wings on the property. This includes the retention of the green space courtyard area, a unique feature of the school.In February of this year, a $16.9 million contract was approved by Cabinet for the demolition of the St Rose’s High School. At that time, Minister of State Joseph Harmon had stated that the tearing down of the old building would’ve commenced during the Easter vacation. However, these plans did not materialise and the works were postponed to this month.last_img read more

Saving Energy With Manual J and Manual D

No Comments on Saving Energy With Manual J and Manual D

first_imgIf you’ve been paying attention to energy-efficiency experts and green-building Web sites, you probably know that it’s important to properly size your HVAC equipment. Most sources repeat the same advice: oversized furnaces and air conditioners cost too much, waste energy, and sometimes provide lower levels of comfort.To avoid these problems, the first step is to insist that your HVAC contractor perform a Manual J calculation to determine the heat loss and heat gain for each room of your house under peak (worst-case) conditions. Then your contractor can specify equipment that meets Manual J requirements.If you’re building a new home, your contractor should design your duct system using Manual D. (Manual D depends on the room-by-room heat loss and heat gain numbers supplied by the Manual J calculations.)Sounds easy, right? Well, it isn’t. In most areas of the country, it’s very difficult to find a residential HVAC contractor who is willing to perform Manual J and Manual D calculations.Helpful advice from your governmentAccording to the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, “Homeowners should insist that contractors use a correct sizing calculation before signing a contract. This service is often offered at little or no cost to homeowners by … conscientious heating and air conditioning contractors.” Yeah, right.The government Web site goes on to advise, “When the contractors are finished, get a copy of their calculations, assumptions, and the computer printout or finished worksheet.” Well, that’s easy for you to say. But just see how easy it is to get that paperwork from Bob once his Do-It-Right HVAC Service has finished installing your new air conditioner.Easy enough for an 8th grader to do it — Quick, find me an 8th graderManual J and… Start Free Trial Already a member?
