Wolf said. “I hope all Pennsylvanians review and use it to know that we want to provide the resources, support and understanding to help everyone live a happy, healthful life here in the commonwealth.”Ver esta página en español.

Gold Coast home comes with purpose built recording studio

first_img It was purpose built so is sound proofed. It has music and mixing rooms as well as an office.“His background is in recording music and sampling so he got approval to build that shed and then had it … properly and acoustically designed,” he said.“To have that sort of setup in that location, it’s pretty special.”He said it was rare for properties with recording studios to hit the market so it was music to many buyers’ ears when they did.After about a week on the market, Mr Scartozzi said he was already fielding interest from potential buyers, including one who also sampled music for artists.“I had someone who called me that’s interested who is moving from Sydney,” he said.

PM Skerrit criticizes Soufriere protest

first_imgLocalNews PM Skerrit criticizes Soufriere protest by: – May 5, 2012 Tweet 26 Views   2 comments Share Sharing is caring!center_img Share Share Soufriere bus drivers on strike on Wednesday of this week.A two day protest action by bus drivers in a southern community has been criticized by the country’s prime minister.Bus drivers serving Soufriere, Scotts head and Gallion on Wednesday and Thursday of this week decided not to work leaving school children and workers stranded in what they described as poor road conditions in the area. This move the Prime Minister Skerrit said wasn’t necessary.He told the official opening of the newly refurbished health center in Ans de Mai on Thursday night that residence must be reasonable in their demands to government. Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit“Government is spending $33 million in Pointe Michel building a sea wall ad a new road, and men and women are demonstrating for a few pots holes in the road. What message are we sending to our children? I am the prime minister of the country and if you drive to my home in Morne Bruce you will see port holes in the roads. If you come to where I live, the house is infested with termites. In some rooms there is no electricity because of electricity problems. Some of the taps cannot close because there are problems. This is the prime minister home. Sometimes in Vieille Case I have to take a bath from the little Loubiere Spring Water bottle because of no water,” he said.The prime minister has asked Dominicans to remain patient, as his government is making every effort to alleviate the living conditions and lives of its citizens.“We have to be grateful for what is happening in this country. We cannot curse the darkness instead of lighting a candle. We have to be thankful for the major projects that are happening”.He also suggested that citizens can assist by getting together and “blocking the holes”.According to him, the bus drivers have “denied the children from going to school for some foolishness”.The prime minister also questioned whether he should have stopped the ongoing project in Pointe Michel and fixed the roads instead.Dominica Vibes Newslast_img read more

Watch What You Say On The Air

first_imgAn amusing story in Sports Illustrated listed what several sports commentators said on air that got them suspended.  Bill Simmons was suspended three weeks for criticizing Roger Goodell on the air.  Max Bretos received 30 days suspension for the remark “chink in the armor” when he was referring to Jeremy Lin’s play in the NBA.  Tony Kornheiser was suspended 2 weeks for his remarks on Hannah Storm’s wardrobe.  Teddy Atlas was suspended 2 weeks for arguing with his program director.  Keith Oldermann  received 2 months for calling Bristol, Connecticut, a god-forsaken place, and Dan LeBatard had to sit out 2 days for renting a billboard mocking LeBron James.I once had to write a letter of apology for saying a certain basketball player took a bad shot in a game that I was broadcasting.  I believe when a 6’5″ center shoots a 3-pointer with less than 10 seconds in the game with his team leading by two points was still a bad shot.  However, I still wrote the letter of apology.  My advice is, “watch what you say when you are on radio or TV”.   You may not mean it exactly like it sounds.last_img read more

Tottenham return to form with thrashing of Red Star

first_imgRelatedPosts EPL: Son fires four past Southampton Aguero could be out of action until November, Guardiola says UCL: Benfica kicked out by player who left club one week earlier + other results Harry Kane and Son Heung-min both struck twice as Tottenham Hotspur rekindled their Champions League hopes with a club record 5-0 thrashing of Red Star Belgrade on Tuesday. After suffering their heaviest home defeat in Europe on matchday two, a 7-2 humiliation by Bayern Munich, they responded to claim their biggest win in the Champions League. Red Star arrived in second place in Group B behind Bayern Munich while Tottenham were desperate to kickstart their European campaign after taking only one point from two games. But once Kane headed in Erik Lamela’s corner after nine minutes and Son’s half-volley, also from a Lamela assist, made it 2-0 after 16 minutes, the gloom that had descended over the north London club after a troubling start to the season on all fronts finally began to lift. Red Star responded in spirited fashion to the early setbacks but Son’s second just before halftime killed off any hopes they harboured of a comeback. The excellent Lamela, making his 200th appearance, made it 4-0 in the 57th minute and Kane’s exquisite finish in the 72nd minute took his Champions League tally to 18 goals in 22 appearances. Victory put Tottenham into second spot with four points, five behind runaway leaders Bayern and one clear of Red Star who they face in the Serbian capital in a fortnight. Tottenham’s form has been one of the most puzzling themes of the English season so far with Mauricio Pochettino’s side winning only three of their nine Premier League games and losing to fourth-tier Colchester in the League Cup. But Spurs responded with a display much more in keeping with what people have come to expect under Pochettino. On the front foot from the start, Kane and Son had already had chances before Kane found space in the area to plant a header past Red Star keeper Milan Borjan from Lamela’s delivery. Lamela was the provider again seven minutes later, picking out Son to hammer a side-foot volley high into the net. Red Star were backed by a noisy contingent of fans high in the upper tier, despite a UEFA punishment for racism which meant they were unable to buy tickets. But the fans were silenced in the 44th minute when captain Marko Marin, formerly of Chelsea, was robbed of the ball by Tanguy Ndombele and he powered forward before releasing Son who took a touch before slotting home. The onslaught continued after the break as the confidence flooded back into the Spurs ranks. Lamela beat Borjan with a rising shot on the turn and Kane completed the rout with a clinical finish.

first_imgST JOHN’S, Antigua  (CMC) – Title-holders Barbados suffered an early blow to their title defence when they crashed to a 68-run defeat to archrivals Trinidad and Tobago, in the opening round of the Regional Under-15 Super50 Cup here yesterday.Asked to chase 216 at All Saints, Barbados were bundled out for 147 in the 43rd over, with Nickyle Jalim (2-26) and Joshua Davis (2-31) finishing with two wickets apiece.Opener Micaiah Simmons top-scored with 42, posting 47 for the second wicket with Joshua Morris (25) but once the partnership was broken, the Barbados innings fell apart.Justin Jagessar had earlier carved out 55 as T&T chalked up 215 for nine off their 50 overs, after they were sent in.With T&T struggling on 78 for four in the 24th, Jagessar anchored a 63-run fifth-wicket stand with Kyle Ramdoo (22) to repair the innings.Nathan Sealy finished with four for 33.At Liberta, opener Rampertab Ramnauth struck the first century of the tournament with a polished 114 as Guyana produced a superb run chase to beat Jamaica by six wickets.In pursuit of a challenging 244, Guyana reached their target in the 46th over with Ramnauth stroking 14 fours in an innings lasting 134 balls.He put on 128 for the first wicket with Jadon Campbell who made 47 off 45 deliveries, and a further 76 for the second wicket with Mavindra Dindyal who stroked 42 from 60 balls.Jamaica, sent in, had tallied 243 for eight off their 50 overs with Steven Wedderburn getting an unbeaten 74 off 93 balls with seven fours and a six.With the innings in trouble at 138 for seven in the 34th over, Wedderburn inspired a crucial 84-run eighth-wicket stand with Reon Edwards (15) to get his side past the 200-run mark.In the other game played at Coolidge Cricket Ground, Windward Islands chased down a paltry 83 to beat Leeward Islands by eight wickets.last_img read more
