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_imgMumbai Indians become first team to win 100 IPL games.Mumbai Indians now have won 15 and lost 12 encounters against Chennai Super Kings in the IPL.Chennai Super Kings suffered an injury blow in the form of Dwayne Bravo. In the 20th over bowled by Dwayne Bravo, normally a composed bowler, the entire game changed. Pollard launched a monstrous six off a no-ball which notched up Mumbai Indians’ 150 but the last three balls faced by Hardik made the difference. The fourth ball was a yorker from Bravo but Pandya hung back in the crease and unfurled a Dhoni-esque helicopter shot over deep midwicket. The fifth ball was a full and wide ball which Hardik thumped over deep cover but the final ball of the innings displayd Hardik’s class as he carved a full ball over square third man. Hardik’s 25 runs off eight balls and 45 runs in the last two overs, including 29 in the last over, had changed the momentum towards Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings were left reeling. Bad start Chasing 171 on a wicket which provided extra bounce and zip, Chennai Super Kings made a disastrous start when Ambati Rayudu (0) was caught by a sharp short ball from Jason Behrendorff. Lasith Malinga struck in the next over when Shane Watson (5) cut a short and wide ball only for Kieron Pollard to take a leaping catch at point. Suresh Raina and Kedar Jadhav started off in aggressive fashion, with Raina thumping a six and two fours off Behrendorff while Jadhav flicked a six and a four to fine leg off Malinga. However, Chennai Super Kings were dealt a blow when Raina (16) cut Behrendorff to deep backward point only for Pollard to take a stunning catch leaping backwards and holding onto the ball with one hand near the boundary. Jadhav kept finding the boundary on a consistent basis, smashing three fours in an over bowled by Jasprit Bumrah but MS Dhoni struggled for timing and failed to find the boundary. The partnership went past fifty but Hardik changed the game again, this time with the ball. Bowling the 15th over of the innings, Dhoni needed to step up a gear and he charged down the track to Hardik. However, the bowler spotted it and banged a short ball close to Dhoni’s body cramping him for room. The Chennai Super Kings captain had no choice and he limply pulled to square leg to end on 12 off 21 balls. When Ravindra Jadeja fell in the same over, the game was up for Chennai Super Kings. Jadhav hit a fifty and Dwayne Bravo hit a six but it was all in vain and Chennai Super Kings failed to come near Mumbai Indians’ score, which at one point did not look possible after a struggle in the middle overs. Suryakumar fights Chennai Super Kings inserted Mumbai Indians in and they immediately found success with Deepak Chahar getting the big wicket of Quinton de Kock (4). Suryakumar Yadav came in and struck five boundaries in two overs to get Mumbai Indians going. Following the end of the powerplay, Ravindra Jadeja sent back Rohit Sharma (13) and Imran Tahir dismissed Yuvraj Singh (4) with Ambati Rayudu taking a catch close to the long off boundary. Suryakumar continued to fight and despite a scratchy start from Krunal Pandya, Mumbai Indians continued to make progress. Krunal got going with two boundaries off Mohit Sharma and he received some good fortune in the next two overs. In the 13th over bowled by Bravo, he was dropped by Mohit at mid off and in the next over bowled by Shardul Thakur, he was given out LBW but managed to overturn it on review. Krunal punished Chennai Super Kings by launching Tahir over long on for a six. Despite mishitting plenty of shots, Krunal slammed two boundaries off Mohit Sharma before being dismissed for 42.Suryakumar notched up his sixth fifty and when he perished for 59, it seemed Mumbai Indians would fail to put up a good score but that was the time Hardik changed the game. With news emerging that Bravo has suffered a hamstring injury, Chennai Super Kings have plenty to ponder for their next game against Kolkata Knight Riders while Mumbai Indians will be hoping that this win establishes a winning consistency in this tournament.  highlights New Delhi: Hardik Pandya’s sensational last over blitz, in which he smashed two sixes and a four off Dwayne Bravo and his three wickets, which included MS Dhoni and Ravindra Jadeja in the same over, proved to the difference-maker as Mumbai Indians got their IPL 2019 campaign back on track with a magnificent 37-run win over Chennai Super Kings at the Wankhede stadium on Wednesday. The win was Mumbai Indians’ 100th in the IPL, the first team to achieve this feat and they not only subjected Chennai Super Kings their first loss in IPL 2019, they increased their superior head-to-head record against Dhoni’s side to 15-12 in IPL encounters. The clash between the two three-time IPL champions was dominated by Pandya’s two game-changing moments. The right-hander had come out to bat at a time when Mumbai Indians had scored 125/5 in 18 overs. Hardik signaled his intentions by mauling Shardul Thakur for a 97-meter six over deep midwicket and Kieron Pollard followed him with a six over deep midwicket. Having hit 16 in the 19th over, Mumbai Indians fancied a score in between 150-160.  For all the Latest Sports News News, Indian Premier League News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps.last_img read more

first_imgBen Stokes blasted his eighth century and third against Australia.England levelled the five-match Ashes series 1-1.England were bowled out for 67 in their first innings. highlights For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps.center_img New Delhi: During the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup, there were a lot of comparisons for the Pakistan cricket team when they were making progress. The progress of the Pakistan cricket team in 2019 was very similar to the one in the 1992 World Cup. After losing to West Indies, they defeated England and their next match against Sri Lanka was abandoned. After losing to Australia and India, Pakistan won their next games against South Africa, New Zealand, Afghanistan and Bangladesh and it mirrored their success in 1992, where they won all their games after winning only one out of five games. The comparisons are back in cricket, this time for the Ashes contest. Ben Stokes’ brilliant, unbeaten 135 helped England secure a thrilling one-wicket win against Australia in Leeds. The comeback win for England is simply remarkable after they were bowled out for 67, the lowest total at home for the hosts in Ashes contest since 1948. England seemed to be down and out when they were reduced to 286/9 but Stokes shared a brilliant 76-run stand with Jack Leach for the final wicket as the hosts squared the series in style. Many social media users, cricket fans and other analysts are comparing Ben Stokes’ effort with that of Sir Ian Botham, who had blasted 149 and helped England revive their fortunes at the same venue in 1981. However, the comparisons go much deeper than that. In 1981, Australia had won the first Test in Trent Bridge by four wickets while the second Test in Lord’s ended in a tense draw. In the third Test, England were following on but Sir Ian Botham blasted 149 in the second innings and Bob Willis took 8/43 as England registered a remarkable 18-run win. England leveled the series 1-1 after three Tests.The progress in 2019 is eerily similar. Australia won the Edgbaston Test by 251 runs while the Lord’s Test ended in a thrilling draw with only four wicket remaining. In Leeds, Australia had almost retained the Ashes on England soil but a devastating knock from Stokes ensured England leveled the series in Headingley. In 1981, Botham produced remarkable all-round performances with both bat and ball to help England win the next two Tests and win the series 3-1. With Stokes having produced a knock of similar impact in Leeds, will England go for the kill against an Australia side which will be thoroughly deflated after the carnage in Leeds? last_img read more
