Jamaican international and Millwall full back Shaun Cummings netted his first goal for the club he joined in January on a two and a half year deal, scoring a fortuitous second goal in a 4-0 win over Southend United in the English League One on Monday.The former Chelsea trainee was called up to a provisional Reggae Boyz squad for a few World Cup qualifiers in 2013, but after a couple appearances, has not featured since.The win for his club on Saturday was a big boost to their chances of securing a play-off berth, as it left them in ninth place with 34 points from 23 games.This leaves them three points off a play-off spot, occupied by Saturday’s opponent, Southend, and 14 points behind leaders Walsall.Cummings’ goal came in the 35th minute, eight minutes after Joe Martin put them ahead. The marauding right back sent in a deep cross, which deceived Southend’s goalkeeper, Daniel Bentley, hitting the post and then the custodian before rebounding into the goal.Fred Onyedimna and Aiden O’brian were the other scorers for Millwall, who ended Southend’s eight match unbeaten run and registered their first win in four games.Meanwhile, in the English League Championship, Reggae Boyz winger Gareth McCleary scored the lone goal in Reading’s 1-2 defeat to Brentford.His Jamaican teammate and defender, Michael Hector, saw red in that game after he was yellow-carded in the 12th and the 87th minutes.Reading are 12th in the standings with 30 points from 24 games and are seven points adrift of a play-off spot, which is currently being held by sixth-place Ipswich with 37 points.

The Indian High Commission in Guyana on Tuesday hosted a local celebration of the 2018 Pravasi Bharatiya Divas, which is held bi-annually in India to honour overseas-based Indians who have made contributions towards the development of the country.Pravasi Bharatiya Divas, which translates to Indian Diaspora, is observed onA cultural presentation by ICC dancersJanuary 9 annually and commemorates the return of Mahatama Gandhi, the country’s greatest Pravasi, to India from South Africa to lead the independence struggle.This year’s event was held under the theme: “Diaspora – The connection with India”. It also saw the hosting of the first ever People of Indian Origin (PIO) Parliamentarian Conference.A 23-member Guyanese delegation of 20 Members of Parliament (MPs), including former President Bharrat Jagdeo, attended the conference on Tuesday in New Delhi, India.The Pravasi Bharatiya Divas celebration in India started back in 2003 and provides a platform to discuss issues concerning the Indian Diaspora. The Pravasi Bharatiya Samman Awards are also given.Prominent Guyanese such as former Presidents Bharrat Jagdeo and Donald Ramotar along with business tycoon, Dr Yesu Persaud have all been recipients of the award in the past.Addressing the gathering at the local celebrations held at the Indian Culture Centre, High Commissioner Venkatachalam Mahalingam said Indo-Guyanese, who are the in third and fourth generations of indentured ancestors, have made great contributions in shaping Guyana. He noted too that in doing all this, they managed to preserve many of the cultures and traditions passed on by their foreparents.“Amazingly, they have preserved their Indian culture in various forms through religious practices music, costumes, food habits, etc, though they have lost linguistic and family contacts from their ancestral land primarily due to enormous distance involved,” he stated.However, Mahalingam noted that the High Commission has since been engaged in various activities to further strengthen and sustain the cultures and traditions that were passed down. In fact, he noted that the High Commission will soon be organising cooking classes to teach Guyanese authentic Indian cuisines.Meanwhile, Cultural Activist Neaz Subhan was invited to speak on the topic: ‘Continuation of Cultural Moorings – Guyana’s experience’.He reflected on the journeys of Indian ancestors, who ensured that their identities, especially their cultural genetics, were never compromised when they decided to stay and build their lives in this foreign land.However, while much has been done to preserve the culture and traditions passed down, Subhan warned of the cultural erosion that is largely impacted by western and other influences, including technology. He urged Indo-Guyanese to remember in mind and spirit who they are and where they came from.“…We must not allow ourselves to succumb to complacency for it is being bombarded by tremendous influences with unfortunate erosion in some areas. But we cannot give up and must not be overwhelmed by the influences despite the difficulties and the lure, for if we do, then I don’t think we can genuinely pay homage to our indentured foreparents and the value of their selfless sacrifices can eventually disappear. While there is not so a subtle hint of gloom in that, we must also be proud of what we have done within the context of the Guyanese experience,” he said.On this note, the cultural activist posited that the Pravasi Bharatiya Divas must be seen as an avenue to foster ideas and introspection that will aid in the navigation through the challenges and times when necessary adaptation is no longer an option.The opportunity afforded to Indians across the world to meaningfully participate is not only most useful, but must be commended. The longevity of our culture, the continuation of the cultural moorings so that we can have and preserve the Guyanese experience, may depend a lot on such events including this simple gathering here this afternoon,” he asserted.Nevertheless, Subhan noted that on the local context, Indo-Guyanese must find ways and means beyond to sustain and broaden the efforts triggered by the cultural moorings over time.

DALLAS (AP) – A recently discovered home movie shows a brief but clear glimpse of President Kennedy and first lady Jacqueline Kennedy just seconds before his assassination. The silent, 8 mm color film is “the clearest, best film of Jackie in the motorcade,” said Gary Mack, curator of the Sixth Floor Museum, which focuses on Kennedy’s life and assassination. The film was unveiled Monday on the museum’s Web site. The film shows a clear glimpse of President Kennedy and the first lady a few blocks from Dealey Plaza and roughly 90 seconds before the killing. Also visible is Secret Service agent Clint Hill riding on the back of the car. The assassination is not shown in the 40-second clip. The film ends with some footage the next day outside the Texas School Book Depository, the building from which assassin Lee Harvey Oswald fired the fatal shots on Nov. 22, 1963. Amateur photographer George Jefferies, 82, took the footage and held onto it for more than 40 years, Mack said. Jefferies mentioned it in a casual conversation with his son-in-law, Wayne Graham, and the two agreed to donate it to the museum. At least 150,000 people lined the motorcade route, and Mack said he believes there are more film and photographs out there. “I know there are pictures out here that have not surfaced,” Mack said. “The museum is always on the lookout for pictures. The bottom line is don’t throw anything away.”

GAA: Former Kerry legend Tómas Ó Sé has come up with a unique way of dismantling Donegal’s ultra-tight defensive structure.Ó Sé, now an analyst on The Sunday Game was asked how do Derry approach their semi-final against Donegal and what to do they need to bring to the table to beat them.Ó Sé jokingly hit back and said “A couple of KANGOS and a few snipers will do the job rightly.” That prompted laughter in the studio, but on a more serious note Ó Sé did concede that Derry face a hell of a task coming up with a strategy to defeat Donegal.He doesn’t believe they have the firepower to hurt Donegal despite Eoin Bradley and Mark Lynch’s impressive performances last week against Down.Ó Sé did say that Donegal will be presented with a more difficult challenge than the one poised by Armagh and expects Derry to adopt an ultra-defensive approach similar to the one they employed against Dublin in the league.Former Kildare star Dermot Earley believes no team plays the defensive system better than Donegal and thinks they’ll be there or thereabouts comes the business end of the season. Earley said, “Donegal are a serious, serious side, and nobody in the country plays this defensive style of football better than them.“They’re so good at it, and everybody knows there role, other teams get behind the ball and mark space but don’t necessarily know how to play it.“Donegal on the other hand are a different breed, every players knows where to be and what they have to do.“They also have so much variation in their attack and that makes them so hard to play against.Will Derry manager Brian McIver bring the KANGO’s to Clones on June 27th? Judging by today’s awesome performance he’s going to need them.HOW DO YOU STOP DONEGAL? “A FEW KANGOS AND A COUPLE OF SNIPERS SAYS FORMER KERRY STAR” was last modified: June 15th, 2015 by Mark ForkerShare 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:donegalGAAKerrynewsSportThe Sunday GameTomás Ó Sé

Clueless? ShatterDonegal Fianna Fáil Deputy Charlie McConalogue has accused the Minister for Justice Alan Shatter of refusing to acknowledge the serious and escalating burglary problem in Donegal and of dismissing the fears of local homeowners. Deputy McConalogue said the Minister’s comments on the Shaun Doherty Show today exposed his total lack of understanding of the specific policing challenges facing Donegal and the border region.“Alan Shatter clearly has no clue what is actually happening in Donegal,” said Deputy McConalogue. “For the Minister for Justice to describe recent attacks here as ‘unfortunate’ shows how out of touch he has become in a very short period of time. He compounded this by attempting to dismiss the genuine fears of Donegal residents who are feeling increasingly vulnerable in their homes at this time.“How can the Minister downplay this terrible spate of aggravated burglaries, when every single day we hear stories about criminals targeting yet another vulnerable Donegal homeowner?“The Minister’s answer is not to address the problem, but to completely dismiss it and press ahead with plans to shut down 5 more Donegal garda stations within the next two weeks and force cuts to garda numbers.“Before he completely dismantles our local garda resources, Minister Shatter would be well-served by leaving Dublin for a day and coming up to Donegal to hear for himself the very real anxiety among homeowners here and the impact on our communities of removing the local garda station. “I am urging the Minister to take a step back from his assault on our local garda resources and meet me to discuss this extremely worrying local crime wave. The Minister has so far refused to acknowledge the specific policing challenges facing Donegal and the border region. It is time for him to stop dismissing these very real problems and start addressing them before more people are hurt.”Earlier the Minister told the media in Dublin that Donegal “wasn’t a special case” when it come to rural crime and insisted Gardai are targeting the criminals.He said almost 2,000 criminals were charged in the 26 Counties last year with burglary offences.
