The history of Lionism begins with Melvin Jones who was born in 1879 in Arizona, USA. He had ideas to bring together the talents, intelligence and drive of local businessmen to improve their communities. Hence he invited delegates from men’s clubs to form such an organization on 7th June 1917. Thus was born Lions Clubs International. Today, it is the world’s largest service organization with 1.35 million members in over 45,000 clubs in 206 countries and geographical areas worldwide.The Dominica Lions Club recently ended a very successful 2011 with their annual Christmas Carols by Candlelight at the Goodwill Lindo Park and a Food Drive carried out at various supermarkets which made it possible for eight (8) needy families to receive food hampers during the Christmas season.The club takes this opportunity to publicly thank all its sponsors and all who so graciously supported its activities throughout 2011 thus enabling it to fulfill its motto: “We Serve”.Press ReleaseDominica Lions Clubcenter_img Share Share LocalNews Dominica Lions Club Celebrates Founder’s Birthday by: – January 18, 2012last_img read more

Bath Estate Huskies knocked out of Roseau Valley Basketball League

first_imgNewsSports Bath Estate Huskies knocked out of Roseau Valley Basketball League by: – April 4, 2012 Share 23 Views   no discussions Share Tweetcenter_img Sharing is caring! Share The Bath Estate Huskies have been knocked out of the Roseau Valley Basketball League after they were defeated by the Fond Canie Upsetters by a final score of 76-71 on Tuesday.Both teams came in to the game needing a win to stand a chance to make the play-offs, as other teams are ahead of them in their zone however the Upsetters certainly lived up to their name, as no one would have expected them to beat the Huskies. They controlled the game from the tip off. Again, 80% of the load was carried on the back of star player, Lester Langlais, who again dominated with another 30 point game, his 3th of the season. Though it was minimal, he got efficient help from veteran, Lyndson Lynch and also Darrius Nichols, and a very unlikely player, Dr. Irving Mc’Intyre. He showed that he is not just a doctor, but can also bounce a ball. It was visible, that the big 3 from Massacre & the doc meant business. They now have 3 wins and 3 losses from 6 games. The Huskies are to be extremely disappointed with this loss. They have won only 3 games out of a possible 8 and will not be playing in the play-offs. They possess a championship team with the likes of Ivan “Bakery” Jno. Baptiste, Davidson “Ginny” Toulon, Joseph “Jo-Jo” Hypolite, Nigel “Gwen-La” Hilaire & Marcel Nicholas, along with 4 or 5 other big name players, but they were just not able to put it together, when it came to getting the wins.Their loss last night was mainly due to, a bit of poor team chemistry and unity, and crucial turn overs in the final minutes of play, when they were down only 2 points. There was a lack of fire power between Ivan “Bakery” Jno. Baptiste & Davidson “Ginny” Toulon which did not help their cause, as they only contributed 6 points between them. The huskies finally realize that when it comes to basketball, it’s not “blue blue, estate for true”. Top performers for Upsetters were; Lester anglais – 36 pts, 6 asts, Lyndson Lynch – 16 pts, 4 asts and Darrius Nichols – 13 pts, 5 rebTop performers for Huskies were; Marcel Nicholas – 24 pts, 7 reb, 2 blks, Joseph “Jo-Jo” Hypolite – 20 pts, 9 reb and Bedno Soanes – 9 pts, 2 asts.Next game is on Wednesday night at 7:30 between the Upper Village Huskies & Laudat Spartans at the Trafalgar basketball court.By: Edgar Georgelast_img read more

Photo credit: organicgardeningfarming.comA grant from a Canadian Fund has assisted bee keepers within the Layou Valley community to revive bee hives which were wiped out as a result of the collapse of the Matthieu Dam in 2008.The Dominica Bee-keepers Co-operative Society Limited which has been in existence for twenty-five (25) years recently received a $65,000.00 grant from the Canadian Fund for Local Initiative (CFLI). In 2008, the Matthieu Dam Disaster wiped out over thirty-six (36) productive hives and ALL livestock, poultry, vegetable, fruit and root crops belonging to members of that Association, which eventually brought their agriculture production in Layou Valley to a grinding halt. The Inter-American Institute for Co-operation on Agriculture (IICA) was able to secure funding through the CFLI, which allowed for the re-establishment of the hives which were lost, and for the procurement of protective gears, extraction equipment and materials for hive construction.Honey production which is simple and profitable will enable farmers in the catchment area to engage in this viable venture.This funding was provided for the purchase of essential bee keeping equipment and materials. IICA has also provided technical support on honey production and processing. It is anticipated that as the project expands, the wider community itself and neighbouring villages will have access to the resources and expertise.New members of the Beekeepers Society will be engaged in hive construction at a site next to Dexia’s Packing Shed on Rawle’s Lane, on Tuesday 24th July at 10.30, and this will be followed by a demonstration session on honey extraction at a selected bee-hive farm in Machourie.Press release LocalNews Canadian grant to revive bee keeping in Layou Valley by: – July 23, 2012last_img read more

Ligue 1: PSG aided by own goal in win over Lyon

first_imgParis Saint-Germain survived the absence of Neymar and a Lyon fightback to win Sunday night’s Ligue 1 clash 4-2 at a stormy Parc des Princes, helped by Fernando Marcal’s truly stunning second-half own goal.Advertisement Runaway leaders and defending champions PSG were cruising at half-time with Angel Di Maria and Kylian Mbappe giving them a two-goal advantage against a Lyon side enduring a disappointing season. Then Marcal comically blasted the ball into the roof of his own net just after the break, leaving Lyon looking at another heavy defeat in Paris, where they lost 5-0 in this fixture last season.However, Martin Terrier and Moussa Dembele quickly pulled goals back, and PSG needed a late strike by substitute Edinson Cavani to secure the points.“Normally after a goal like that the game is over,” said coach Thomas Tuchel of the own goal. “But we were not disciplined enough and it was a lesson for us that it’s never over.”PSG’s performance showcased why they can ill afford to be complacent heading into their Champions League last 16, first leg match away to Borussia Dortmund on February 18, even if sporting director Leonardo insisted to Canal Plus that the tie was “not life or death” for the Qatar-owned club.They will hope to have Neymar back by then. The world’s most expensive player sat out a second consecutive match here due to a rib complaint.“We play a lot of games and errors happen but I don’t know if it’s the time to be too critical,” Tuchel added.“The team was great and we can’t forget we were without lots of key players.”Without Neymar – as well as his injured compatriots, Thiago Silva and Marquinhos, in defence – Tuchel’s side made it eight straight wins and stretched their unbeaten run to 21 games in all competitions.Lyon, meanwhile, have not won in three and this result leaves the seven-time former champions in ninth place.They are eight points adrift of the Champions League qualifying spots and their upcoming European double-header against Juventus looks certain to be a step too far for them.– Cavani nears double-century –How Rudi Garcia’s side must have wished this match had been postponed due to the swirling wind and rain caused by Storm Ciara – which left ticker-tape from pre-match fan displays strewn all over the pitch – as they struggled to keep up with PSG in the first half.PSG broke forward to open the scoring midway through the first half as Idrissa Gueye fed Di Maria to cut in from the right and beat Lyon goalkeeper Anthony Lopes with a low strike at his near post.Thomas Meunier then squared for Mbappe to score his 15th league goal of the season in the 38th minute after fine work by Mauro Icardi, and both Icardi and Mbappe also had goals disallowed for offside before the interval.Then, two minutes after the break, came what looked like the coup de grace.An attempted cutback by Julian Draxler was going nowhere before Thiago Mendes intervened, allowing Draxler to keep the ball in play and return it to the edge of the six-yard box, where the hapless Marcal slammed it into the roof of his own net.Nevertheless, Lyon hit back with Terrier’s shot squirming under the body of Keylor Navas before Karl Toko Ekambi teed up Dembele to convert his 13th in the league this season just prior to the hour mark.Paris Saint-Germain saw off a Lyon fightback to win 4-2 at the Parc des Princes on Sunday night FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Read Also: Ligue 1: Monaco up to fifth after frantic finishMbappe had another effort ruled out and then hit the woodwork, and it was not until the introduction of Cavani – the fans’ favourite reduced to role of bit-part player – that the home side made sure of the points.Di Maria set up the Uruguayan to complete the scoring 10 minutes from time with what was his 199th goal for PSG.They are 12 points clear of Marseille, who beat Toulouse 1-0 on Saturday with a Dimitri Payet goal.
