first_imgReservists are not full-time members of the Military. They include professionals, such as doctors and lawyers, college students, and blue-collar workers, such as plumbers and carpenters. Because they are part of the community, reserve Soldiers help build a rapport between the Military and the civilian population. Overall, the Guatemalan Armed Forces includes 22,000 Soldiers; 2,000 Military police agents; 900 Sailors; and 750 Air Force members. The Guatemalan Army welcomed more than 50 women to the 2015 training cycle for the Military Reserves, which kicked off in January with events at Constitution Square in the capital, as well as the central parks of the country’s 22 departments. The Guatemalan Army is doing significant outreach to attract women to the Reserves and active service. The Army is considered to offer good professional opportunities for Guatemalan women, with more room for advancement than other fields. “We have had a process of maturity that has allowed for the inclusion of women,” said Defense Minister Manuel López Ambrocio, at the celebration. “They salute Guatemala saying, ‘I’m here.’ They are of vital importance to the Army.” Diversity in the Military Reserves Equalty for women in the Military “Women were admitted for the first time to the Adolfo V. Hall institutes, where they graduate as Reserve Second Lieutenant in the Infantry and bachelors in Arts and Sciences, and they also could attend the Polytechnic School,” Col. Mérida said. “There is a diversity of people who form the Military Reserves. There are some who have not had … the opportunity to graduate from school, and there are professionals,” he said. “Women were admitted for the first time to the Adolfo V. Hall institutes, where they graduate as Reserve Second Lieutenant in the Infantry and bachelors in Arts and Sciences, and they also could attend the Polytechnic School,” Col. Mérida said. Infantry Colonel Enrique Juchuña Cumez, commander of the country’s Military Reserves, told journalists that about 2,300 young people signed up for this year’s class, including more than 50 women. They will be trained in humanitarian aid, disaster mitigation, civil defense, disarming criminals, map reading and knowledge, human rights, and first aid, he said. In addition, Reserve Soldiers are trained to work in Public Security units, and serve on United Nations peacekeeping missions. By Dialogo February 16, 2015 “In a country with limited spaces for women’s involvement, the Army is promoting and creating these spaces for participation,” said retired Army Colonel Mario Mérida. “The female graduates of the Civil Military Institutes Adolfo V. Hall are very successful in universities around the country, while those who graduate from the Polytechnic School are looking forward to a 30-year professional career.” “The Guatemalan society needs to break with some paradigms that assume women have limited possibilities of advancement in the Armed Forces due to their role as mothers, and considering the benefits that derive from women gaining more independence as they become professionals,” he said. While the age to join the Military Reserves is between 18 and 29, the officer highlighted the fact that 61-year-old Corporal Feliciano Carrillo attends training every Sunday. In October, as he visited the Mariscal Zavala Military base in the capital, Col. Juchuña praised the Reservists, who come from all walks of life. The inclusion of women in the Guatemalan Armed Forces was the central message of last year’s commemoration of Army Day and the Anniversary of the 1871 Revolution on June 30. At the time, the Defense Ministry also announced the implementation of a section for coordination and collaboration with the Specific Cabinet for Women, headed by Vice President Roxana Baldetti.

first_imgTechnical Adviser of Akwa United Abdu Maikaba has told www.busybuddiesng.com that he is pleased with his side’s 1-1 draw against Rivers United in a rescheduled Match Day 22 encounter of the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) decided at the Yakubu Gowon stadium in Port Harcourt on Wednesday.Title-chasing Akwa United stung the hosts with a 12th goal from in-form striker Musa Newman, who fired in from close range but three minutes later, Emeka Ogbuh headed home a brilliant free-kick by Chinwendu Ali to draw the ‘Pride of Rivers’ level.Despite watching CHAN Eagles- invitee Alhassan ‘Muazam’ Ibrahim’s 23rd-minute penalty saved by experienced Sunday Rotimi in goal for Rivers United, Maikaba said he is delighted with the point, even though the ‘Promise Keepers’ could have won the match.“Actually I am happy with the one point but we would have gotten all the three points at stake,” the former Wikki Tourists boss said.“It is part of the game, sometimes, it happens like that. Even the best players in the world miss penalties in important moments.“To me, we played well and faced some difficulties during the game. We know Rivers (United) needed the 3 points so well and we also need the 3 points. But for over two weeks, it is only today (Wednesday) that it didn’t rain. It’s always raining. So the two teams suffered.“That is why you couldn’t see the best of my team today (Wednesday),”With the result, Rivers United moved up two places to 12th spot on the NPFL standings (with a game in hand) while Akwa United remain third with 51 points.Audio Playerhttps://www.busybuddiesng.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/Maikaba-July-27.mp300:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.RelatedMaikaba Pleased With Akwa United Performance Despite CAF Confed Cup Exit (Audio)April 19, 2018In “Africa”NPFL: Maikaba Backs Everton, Begs Akwa United Fans (AUDIO)January 25, 2019In “NPFl”NPFL: Abdu Maikaba Attributes Plateau United Strong Start To Better Players (AUDIO)November 4, 2019In “NPFl”last_img read more

first_imgThe Nationals host the Brewers in the National League wild-card game on Tuesday (8:08 p.m. ET, TBS), with the winner advancing to the NLDS against the Dodgers, the team with the best record in the NL. Three-time Cy Young winner Max Scherzer, who had a 2.92 ERA and 7.36 K/BB ratio this year, will start for the Nationals, who finished 93-69. The Brewers, who were 89-73, will counter with Brandon Woodruff, who had a 3.62 ERA and 4.77 K/BB ratio in 2019.  Nationals vs. Brewers predictionThe Brewers survived their three-week stretch without Christian Yelich thanks mostly to an incredible performance by the pitching staff. That group of pitchers will be tested by the Nationals, who scored more runs in the second half of the season than any other NL team.Anthony Rendon, particularly, was incredible after the break, posting a .336 average and 1.023 OPS. With Max Scherzer on the mound for the Nationals, the margin for error will be slim.Nationals 5, Brewers 3 Here’s everything you need to know about betting on Nationals vs. Brewers, including updated odds, trends and our prediction for the NL wild card game. MORE: Get the latest MLB playoff odds at Sportsbook ReviewBetting odds for Nationals vs. BrewersSpread: Nationals by 1 1/2Run total: 7 1/2Odds: Brewers +164, Nationals -171Nationals vs. Brewers all-time seriesThe Brewers took the season series with the Nationals, winning four of the six head-to-head contests. Milwaukee swept a three-game set at home in early May, and the Nationals took two of three in D.C. in mid-August. The Brewers hold the edge in the all-time head-to-head competition, too, with an 80-72 mark (not that all-time record will have any impact on one playoff game in 2019, of course. Just an FYI.)Three trends to know— 56 percent of spread bettors like the Nationals to cover at home, and 60 percent of the moneyline bettors like the Nationals, too.— As a road underdog of +150 to +200, the Brewers are 3-0 this year. — The Nationals are the much healthier team. Not only is Christian Yelich out, but Lorenzo Cain sprained his ankle in Colorado and is questionable, and Ryan Braun has been battling a calf injury. MORE: Odds to win the World Series for every team in 2019Three things to watchMax effortThe idea of having a three-time Cy Young winner in your corner for a winner-take-all one-game postseason scenario has long been a comfort for Nationals fans who realized catching the Braves in the NL East probably wasn’t going to happen. Scherzer has made 13 career postseason starts. He’s allowed two or fewer earned runs in seven of those starts, including two of his three in a Nationals’ uniform. In his only start against the Brewers in 2010, Scherzer struck out 10 in six innings, allowing six hits and two runs (one earned). Bullpen vs. BullpenLook, anything can happen in a one-game scenario, but Brewers fans have to feel better about their bullpen than Nationals fans. That group played a huge role in the team’s push to the second wild card berth. Even though he gave up a game-tying homer in his final appearance in Colorado, lefty closer Josh Hader had 37 saves this year, including a 1.42 ERA and 32 strikeouts in his past 19 innings. Lefty Drew Pomeranz has a 1.33 ERA in his past 20 1/3 relief innings, with 36 strikeouts against only 11 hits and four walks allowed.Brent Suter, another lefty, came back from injury issues and didn’t allow a single run in his final eight appearances, covering 16 innings. And right-handed starter Jordan Lyles figures to be available out of the bullpen, too; he had a 1.91 ERA in his final seven starts of the season. For the Nationals, Daniel Hudson has been great (0.00 ERA in nine September appearances) and closer Sean Doolittle had a 2.25 ERA in the last month of the season, but several bullpen regulars struggled in September: Fernando Rodney (5.91 ERA), Hunter Strickland (7.45), Javy Guerra (4.91) and Erick Fedde (6.43). Going streaking!Both of these teams are playing with a lot of confidence right now. The Nationals finished their season on an eight-game winning streak, scoring at least six runs in eight of those games and allowing three or fewer runs in six of the contests. The Brewers won 18 of 20 games during their push to the wild-card spot, including 13 of 15 after MVP candidate Christian Yelich went down with a broken kneecap. They lost out on the NL Central in the final series of the season, though, when they were swept by the Rockies. Stat that mattersThis is the fifth time the Nationals have made the postseason since the franchise moved from Montreal to Washington. D.C. As any baseball fan could probably tell you, the Nationals have yet to win a playoff series in those previous four Octobers, often squandering away opportunities in dramatic fashion, even though they’ve had home-field advantage for every single series. In three of those four LDS losses, they lost win-or-go-home Game 5s at Nationals Park. The NL wild card game, of course, is another win-or-go-home contest in D.C. last_img read more
