By Dialogo February 24, 2009 Salvadorian government announced the celebration next Saturday of a “patriotic holiday”, in honor of more than 3,700 soldiers who served in Iraq between August 2003 and last December, to be divided into eleven groups. The Minister of Interior, Juan Miguel Bolanos, told the news conference that the event, which will be attended by President Elías Antonio Saca, will begin around 09:00 local time (15.00 GMT) at the “Jorge Magico Gonzalez” stadium, in San Salvador, and huge crowds are expected. According to the Deputy Minister of Defense and Public Safety, Admiral Marco Antonio Palacios, the ceremony will be “an act of gratitude to over 3,700 soldiers” who engaged in humanitarian work to “alleviate the suffering of thousands of people who are fighting to strengthen the democracy.” Saca will grant awards to the XI Contingent of Cuscatlan Battalion, which is composed of 200 soldiers who returned home last February 7, after working in Iraq and the assistance program offered by El Salvador to the Arab nation for six months till December 31, 2008. Then, the President will honor all the participants of the mission, which began in August 2003 with the deployment of 360 participants. From the second to the ninth contingents the groups grew to 380 members, the tenth was down to 300 and the last to 200, all assigned to work for a semester in humanitarian and reconstruction work in Iraq. Some of the personnel redeployed with the military groups to Iraq several times. Cuscatlan Battalion, formed by personnel specialized in various areas, lost five of their members and about twenty of them were injured during their missions to Iraq, mostly by the explosions of handmade roadside bombs. The XI Contingent left for Iraq in August 2008 under the command of Colonel César Adonai Acosta Bonilla and developed their work at Camp Delta, in the city of Al Kut, a province of Wasit. The Deputy Minister of Defense said, that the forthcoming February 28 celebration ” is a civic event, where our youth must be represented because that were young Salvadoran soldiers who were representing democracy, freedom and peace” in Iraq. Social organizations and the Catholic Church have repeatedly expressed their opposition to sending Salvadoran troops to Iraq in support of the coalition of nations led by the United States.
Comments As the ball spun end-over-end toward the space between the uprights, the excitement in the crowd rose. The 40,521 in the Carrier Dome sensed what this tiny ball traveling between two yellow poles would accomplish.So when Ryan Lichtenstein’s 41-yard kick sailed through, the fans’ eruption commenced in deafening fashion. Down on the field, the center of the gridiron became a stage of blue and orange uniforms mobbed together in celebration. Player after player, coach after coach, they all rushed the field.This was victory.‘This is the start of the Marrone era,’ cornerback Nico Scott said in reference to head coach Doug Marrone. ‘This is his first win. He’s never going to forget this win, from the way it went down from beginning to the finish. It’s big, it’s major.’Behind Lichtenstein’s game-winning field goal as time expired, Syracuse delivered Marrone his first win at the helm in a thrilling 37-34 victory over Northwestern Saturday night.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text‘We haven’t won a lot in the last couple of years, and I think that kind of weighs on people, the older people that have been through it before’ Marrone said. ‘To come in and win a game like this, I think it helps chips away at something. You may have that monkey on your back or that chip on your shoulders of winners compared to losers, so I think we’re chipping away at it.’Syracuse (1-2) won the game in a fashion that several players said they could have not envisioned in any better of a way. In a manner eerily reminiscent to a loss two weeks prior, in which an overtime interception sealed the Orange’s fate against Minnesota, this time, SU was the benefactors of a late-game pick.On a 3rd-and-10 play from the Syracuse 47-yard line with more than a minute left and the scored tied at 34-34, Wildcats’ (2-1) quarterback Mike Kafka dropped back to try and tear the Orange’s beleaguered defense apart one more time. He had methodically torched the secondary for 390 yards on 35-of-41 passing prior to that throw, so the odds seemed in his favor.Syracuse wouldn’t let him get completion No. 36. Safety Max Suter jumped the pass and returned it to the Northwestern 39 with 56 seconds left. The Syracuse faithful roared, and victory was within reach. I‘It felt so great,’ Suter said. ‘I have confidence in (quarterback) Greg (Paulus) every time he goes out there and our receivers and running backs and offensive line, so I knew once I got that pick, I knew Greg was going to get the job done.’Syracuse opened up shop at the NU 39-yard line. First play, Paulus found wide reeiver Mike Williams for an eight-yard strike to the 31. It marked Wiliams’ 11th catch of the day for 209 yards, including two touchdowns. Meanwhile, Paulus had his best collegiate game, completing 24-of-35 passes for 346 yards and two scores. His last touchdown tied the game at 34-34 on a 13-yard strike to Williams with 2:57 remaining.On second down, tailback Delone Carter moved the sticks with a six-yard rush, and Syracuse took a timeout with 46 seconds left. The only thing separating the Orange from a victory was a field goal.Syracuse ran three more plays before rushing Lichtenstein onto the field for the kick as time ran down. The official distance was 41 yards, but considering the circumstances, it may have been mile. Yet the freshman wasn’t nervous. Paulus had told him to expect this scenario.‘I think it was during the third quarter Greg came over to me after a score and he’s like this game is going to come down to you, and it’s going to be a game-winning kick by you,’ Lichtenstein said. ‘He said we have faith in you.’So Lichtenstein lined up and just kicked away. His third field goal of the game sailed through the uprights for the ‘walk-off’ win. He couldn’t see the kick over the Northwestern defensive linemen, but he knew he had done his job when punter Rob Long picked him up. The players swarmed the field and engulfed Lichtenstein. He had delivered victory.‘It was completely mind-numbing experience,’ Lichtenstein said. ‘I don’t have much recollection of what went on in those eight seconds. Completely unbelievable.’Marrone downplayed the importance of the victory after the game, saying it’s all about the players and how he wanted to win one for the seniors. This win was a result of his promise to the team that this season wasn’t about rebuilding, and he owed it to the players to try and win now. He said he told them, ‘I want to do this for you.’And on this night, he delivered the promise, handing the team a win over a Big Ten squad that made a bowl game last year. The players, though, didn’t deliver something famously associated with a coach’s first win: a Gatorade bath.Even as Marrone spoke to the media at the podium after the game, his Syracuse polo shirt was clean of any energy drink stains. But the players plan on making sure he feels the liquid run down his back at some point.‘When we go to a bowl game,’ Scott said. ‘He’s definitely getting that Gatorade shower. Definitely.’[email protected] Published on September 19, 2009 at 12:00 pm Facebook Twitter Google+
Kindred marks fastest route to ‘normal trading’ as it delivers H1 growth July 24, 2020 Submit Related Articles StumbleUpon Share Unibet backs #GoRacingGreen as lead racing charity July 28, 2020 Share Mace launches EQ Connect to solve the industry’s ‘single view’ conundrum on identifying risk August 10, 2020 Kindred Group-subsidiary 32Red has committed itself to reinventing the current football sponsorship model by making a major investment into a new men’s mental health programme. The initiative will see the online gambling platform – which currently sponsors five Championship clubs and Rangers in the Scottish Premiership – invest heavily into the development of Team Talk hubs across the city where men can seek advice, help and encouragement to discuss their mental health. The news comes as gambling industry comes under increasing scrutiny from pressure groups and politicians which would limit the possibility of sponsorship deals between gambling platforms and football clubs.The Gibraltar-licensed platform has since announced that it has also renewed its Principal Sponsorship of Derby County Football Club, as part of a new multi-year agreement with the club. Working alongside the Derby County Community Trust, 32Red will set out plans to establish five new Team Talk hubs across the city as a bid to push its new initiative.Neil Banbury, 32Red’s General Manager, commented: “The investment we are announcing today means Derby County Community Trust can open five Team Talk hubs across the city. Using the unique relationship supporters have with their local club, we hope to reach hundreds more men with the expanded mental health support services who would otherwise be suffering in silence.“Our partnership with Derby County Community Trust, and the extended relationship with Derby County Football Club, shows a new model for football club sponsorship is possible. 32Red are leading the way in becoming a sponsor of choice for a club and its community. “We have a keen commitment to all the clubs we work with – underpinned by our group sustainability strategy. This agreement is a natural progression and will mean that a large percentage of the sum we are spending will go directly to helping those that need it most.”The new year-long investment from the club comes as the gambling platform seeks to become “the sponsor of choice for sporting organisations.” As part of their partnership with the scheme, 32Red will be inviting their team of 32Red Champions – UK sports stars from all fields – to visit Team Talk sessions at one of the five new hubs. If the scheme is successful, 32Red will look to launch similar projects on men’s mental health as part of their commitment to be a positive sponsor for football clubs and their communities.Derby County’s Chief Executive Officer Stephen Pearce added: “Everybody is delighted that Derby County’s Official Partner 32Red have teamed up with the community trust to help provide additional funds that will help to secure five new locations across Derby to give more men the chance to talk.”The new mental-health support scheme will deliver support to men who are suffering from mild mental health issues, while also offering referral services to those who are suffering with more severe problems. Head of Community at Derby County Community Trust Simon Carnall concluded: “This is the first time Derby County’s main sponsor has made such a big investment in the local community. Working in partnership with 32Red, we can now expand the programme and reach many more men with mental health problems across the community over the coming year.”

If you ever wondered what goes on here at WBKB News, a group of local girl scouts could probably tell you.Last weekend the girls got a taste of the day and the life of news. Touring the station, Girl Scout leader, Bonnie Shaw said she was amazed at how much work goes into a 30-minute show.“I think it’s very interesting. I had absolutely no idea what to expect. I mean I watch TV all the time, but that is as far as it goes. It was very interesting,” Shaw said.Trooper, Melody Rigsby said the station gave her hope of having a future career as a reporter.“I’ve always wanted to come here and actually see how it feels to be sitting up at the desk and have lights in your eyes, to see how you guys feel up here,” Rigsby said.Shaw added that the tour helped encourage the girls and reminds them that they can be anything that they want to be in life.“Well with the chances women have nowadays, you can do anything that you want. The more experience that you have by learning about different things; you can choose when you’re ready to be able to go into those fields. So I think this is one of the best fields that they can learn about. If their interested in doing public things like this, this is how they learn, and get an idea,” Shaw said.All in all it was a wonder day teaching the young ladies what goes down at WBKB News, and what life is like daily for me as a reporter anchor.
