There were also visits to an organic farm in St. Elizabeth and a rastafarian indigenous village in Westgate Hills, Montego Bay, that featured a total vegan lifestyle and a traditional herb garden.Mr. Lewis described the road trip as one of the most comprehensive food tours of Jamaica that not only focused on popular Jamaican foods, but also looked at many regional specialities.Jamie Magazine was launched in 2008 and has a circulation of more than 150,000.

Instead of Using Birthday Money for Disney World Vacation, 6-Year-old Uses It to Feed Hurricane Evacuees

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailEmailShare to RedditRedditRedditShare to MoreAddThisMoreRather than using his birthday vacation money to go to Disney World, this little boy chose to feed Hurricane Dorian evacuees instead.Jermaine Bell will be turning 7 years old on September 8th. His parents had originally saved up some money so they could celebrate the youngster’s big day at ‘the happiest place on Earth’—but since the hurricane hit the east coast, Jermaine wanted to make sure those in the midst of it had something eat.He and his family from Allentown, South Carolina then used their savings to buy sandwiches, snacks, and waters for families headed inland from the coast. Together, they stood on the side of the road with signs advertising how they were giving away free meals to evacuees. “The people that are traveling to go to other places, I wanted them to have some food to eat, so they can enjoy the ride to the place that they’re going to stay at,” Jermaine told local reporters in the interview below.RELATED: After Bullied Boy Has Terrible First Day of School, Upperclassmen Take Him Under Their WingOver the course of just one day, Jermaine fed more than 100 evacuees—and he hopes to feed many more.His mother Lauren Bell says that she has been incredibly touched by her son’s compassion—which is why she still hopes to take her son to Disney World, even if it means they simply have to put it off for a while.(WATCH the news coverage below) – Photo by WJBFSave Your Friends From Negativity By Sharing The Sweet Story To Social Media…AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailEmailShare to RedditRedditRedditShare to MoreAddThisMorelast_img read more

Live Blog | John Calipari at UK Media Day

first_img* “These kids are the greatest group that I’ve coached. They’re not here to just show us what they do. BUT we’re doing something that’s never been done in college basketball and trying to make it work – at Kentucky! Under this glowing light that is this. Gonna be hard. Going to be a process. Some of you will jump off the bandwagon right away.”* On autograph scandals: “I don’t sell my autographs. I could sell my autograph, just so you know,” Cal jokes. Is he worried, aware here: “There are things that go on, on other campuses that absolutely cannot go on here. They’ll make a 30 for 30 about it. We’re held to a different standard here. And that’s fine.”* “Karl is established like some of the great players that I’ve coached here. And now … Anthony, he had one question: ‘How do I make the team better?’ Which means all the ego stuff has to be out the window.”* NBA scouts at the on-campus combine were impressed with Cauley-Stein and Towns and the two they were less familiar with, Booker and Lyles. “Alex, the only thing they said: ‘Alex would never be coached the way you’re coaching him (tons of encouragement). I could sit down with him and say, ‘You have to build your own swagger.’”* On Ulis being a guy in at the end of games: “The other day, I made him shoot a free throw in front of his team in order for us to get off the court, and he made it.”* On how to let Willie be Willie and stay within the team concept: “Willie’s been fine. He’s just got to stay connected. You have to be in that circle to really lead. You don’t have to be attached at the hip, but you must be in the circle. I’m not trying to take away from his – from what he is. (But) I told him, ‘You’re painting your hair, you better play well.’”* On the value of the Bahamas to this process: “I’m going to promote: There should be two summer trips every four years. Why not? What’s the negative?” (NCAA allows one international trip per four years.)* Cal on how he tells Andrew and Aaron apart, used device: “I started saying, ‘Two, Andrew. Two, Andrew.’ ” Says he’s not opposed to playing the twins separately.* On the origin of Cal’s platoon: “As soon as the twins said, ‘We’re coming back,’ I went, ‘Oh, my gosh.’ Then I had to call the freshman parents and tell them, “I got your back.”* On Willis and Hawkins: “They also deserve to be in some kind of rotation. We’re still trying to figure that out.”* On expectations: “Last year’s experience … there were things that we went through that it took time. This year, it’s more the outside influences that’ll affect these guys and how strong they are. We play a bad game or two and things start going south, will we stay together like last year’s team?”* Cal said he asked former UK coach Joe B. Hall “How about all those people that jumped off the bandwagon? He said, ‘I hate to tell you, I did too.’ “* Cal on shoe companies: “I’ve been doing this a long time. When I first got started, my team was in Reebok. Then my team went to L.A. Gear. All I asked was, ‘Please don’t have us in the light-up shoes.’ They were very heavy, but we wore them. Then my team went to Adidas. And I’ve been with Nike. All I can tell you is, it’s not had an effect on how I did this job. But people have their opinions on it.* On if he needs a leader to emerge: “In a normal situation, you’d like to have the best player on the court (at the end). But what we’re doing right now is something that’s never been done. … Will that matter when you’re coming at them with so many guys? I absolutely don’t want one (single leader). What if he struggles? You want to have probably four different guys that can drag this team at some point or another.”* “FOX is doing a story now on how the 2010 team was a watershed year. That showed the country that what was happening, it’s changed. … Now I’m telling you, can you imagine if we do this and all 10 kids eat and we win … what do you say now? It’s an issue, now, if this works. And I’m on a mission.”* Calipari on his new hip: “I’m sleeping for the first time in … I can sleep.” * “We can do this. Is it going to be easy? No. Will there be bumps in the road? Oh, yeah. We probably are going to lose a couple … I have to be patient, too, and understand that’s going to be part of the process.”* “I’m not doing this to be a genius. I’ve never done this before. If I was worried about me, I would play seven guys. Do you know how good those seven would be? What I’m doing is what’s right for these kids. Will it change? Will it morph into something else? Probably will. This is the best solution I could come up with. I wracked my brain.”* Calipari on Michigan State coach Tom Izzo joking that in saying the on-campus combine wasn’t recruiting, he was like Pinnochio, could hang 10,000 shirts on his nose: “I don’t need my nose to grow to hold 10,000 shirts. But it was done for the players.”* “Do you play Karl and Willie together? We have not done that yet? But we got a lot of things to try.” Cal says coaching friends say he has to play five or six guys to be successful, “so we’re going to do that,” just times two.* Reaction to being preseason No. 1? “Not really. We may have been ranked No. 1 when we lost in the first round of the NIT. And we may not have been No. 1 when we won the national title. Where were we ranked last year? And we almost fell off the face of the earth. It has no bearing on what we’re about to try to undertake.”* Calipari gets to a big talking point he came prepared to share: “Let me just say this about the two-platooning – and this is not my political affiliation, but this is not communism. If two guys separate themselves and need to get more minutes … they’ll get more minutes. But we’re going to figure that out as we go.”* In the Bahamas “they celebrated each other … and that’s what brought them together.” Calipari also notes that on that trip, UK had to bring in real, competitive teams so his group “would buy into two-platooning.” Succeeding with it against pros, “I think they’re bought in.”* On the Harrison twins: “That’s going to be the key to this,” getting them to play the way the team needs. Says the look much better and more comfortable.* Injury update on Lyles and Cauley-Stein: “Trey is probably about 90-some percent. Willie is healthy and ready to go.”* On vets Poythress and WCS: “The greatest thing is they’re on a team that pushes them as they push the team. There’s not going to be anything easy.”* Practices are highly competitive. “There’s no easy baskets. You’re not getting layups. But we’ve got a lot of learning to do. I’m still not convinced what the different groups will looks like. … At the end of the day, I’m coaching two teams. All my mentors … say the best teams they coached, they played six guys. The best teams that I’ve coached, I’ve played six guys. So I’m doing it twice now. I’m coaching these guys together. And I’m coaching two different teams. I’ve asked to be paid twice.”* “To score against this team” because of UK’s length “you have to beat us in transition (and) hit a lot of threes.”* On Lyles: “He’s got that dog in him. He’s bringing it. When he comes at you, he’s coming at you. He’s a smooth player who can shoot — and he’s 6-10.”We’ll be live-blogging John Calipari’s appearance at Kentucky basketball media day, starting at 1:30 p.m. We’ll hit the highlights of what he has to say about his newly-minted No. 1-ranked Wildcats.

Vurlon Mills retires, sets sights on coaching

first_imgGolden Jaguars international and Fruta Conquerors talisman Vurlon Mills has officially retired from the national senior programme with the sole purpose of commencing a new chapter of his life within the professional coaching realm. This was revealed by the dynamic midfield playmaker during an  interview with Stabroek Sport yesterday. According to the stalwart of the national programme, “More or less I have officially retired from the national programme, I would think I had a fairly good career and …I am beginning a new chapter.”He further added that he will continue to ply his trade locally, revealing, “I will be playing club football with Fruta Conquerors for now because I still enjoy the competitiveness of the game.”Mills, 32, made his senior debut against the Soca Warriors of Trinidad and Tobago in 2010 and has represented Guyana in several FIFA World Cup Qualifiers, as well as Caribbean and Gold Cup Qualifiers during his playing career which spanned 33 caps. The former San Juan Jabloteh player recorded 14 goals in Guyanese colours. His final match occurred in 2019 against the Reggae Boyz of Jamaica. He further declared, “I firmly believe that I will be a better coach than player because I like to teach and develop players. I have the passion for youth development. I have no regrets about my decision. I would come back providing that I have the time and that schedule is not that busy in terms of my coaching career and the other projects that I am embarking on.”Mills, who also has the portfolio of Technical Development of Officer (TDO), revealed that his primary focus is on the recently created Vurlon Mills Football Academy (VMFA), a project which has grown following its birth in February 2018.He added, “I want to focus on my coaching career and developing the VMFA which is a relatively new programme just over two years old. I want to spend time to build it and maintain the standard. I have been coaching for a number of years before I started the academy, but the focus is not permanently on it. I will dedicate my passion to this. I had garnered knowledge during my playing career at the various stages and I have become certified though the GFF with the CONCACAF ‘C’ and ‘D’ Pro Licenses which indicates my seriousness and intention of becoming a professional coach.” Mills further disclosed that another objective is to become a pivotal member of the GFF national coaching grid. “I also want to be part of the national coaching grid, even though I could be selected as assistant coach to any local national team, the passion is the youth programmes, I love developing youth players. The GFF is happy with my decision to go into the coaching real as it is a natural progression”, he said.Meanwhile Mills stated that the current Covid-19 pandemic is having a devastating effect on all and sundry, adding, “I urge everyone to take the necessary precautions and follow all the guidelines and regulations issued by the Ministry of Public Health and WHO. We each can play our part in helping to stop the spread of this virus which has unfortunately affected all parties and industries local or foreign.”He revealed, “As a means of playing my part in the fight, I will soon be conducting virtual training sessions next week from my home for my players. This is to adhere to social distancing and the guidelines from the Ministry of Public Health and WHO.”last_img read more

Orioles second baseman Schoop doubles, scores run in All-Star debut

first_imgMIAMI — Orioles second baseman Jonathan Schoop didn’t wait long to make an impact to help the American League to a 2-1 win in his first All-Star Game on Tuesday night.After entering the game on defense in the previous half-inning, Schoop picked up the first extra-base hit of the contest with a double down the left-field line in the top of the fifth and scored the game’s first run on a bloop single from Minnesota’s Miguel Sano. The 25-year-old quickly fell behind 0-2 against Los Angeles Dodgers left-hander Alex Wood before fouling off two tough pitches and working the count even.It was the kind of at-bat that’s become more common for Schoop this season as he’s improved his plate discipline and has led the Orioles in doubles (23) as well as a number of other offensive categories.“I want to be better every day. I want to be better than I was yesterday,” Schoop said. “I’ve faced [Wood] before, and I know what he’s got. I was just trying to put a good swing on it and hit the ball hard.”Schoop became the third Oriole to double in an All-Star Game over the last five years, following Adam Jones in 2013 and Manny Machado in 2015. A Miami native, Machado attended the exhibition at Marlins Park and invited Schoop to stay at his home this week.After watching countless teammates receive invitations to the All-Star Game in his first three major league seasons, Schoop enjoyed his moment in the spotlight.“It was one of the best moments in my life so far,” Schoop said. “Having fun and playing in front of the crowd. The crowd was good. It was a good display for me.”The Baltimore second baseman also handled four fielding chances flawlessly, including a quick tag on Colorado’s Nolan Arendo to complete Boston center fielder Mookie Betts’ assist in the bottom of the fourth. Manager Buck Showalter has often spoken about the young fielder’s skill in tagging after being tutored by veteran shortstop J.J. Hardy.Schoop was replaced in the seventh inning by Robinson Cano, who hit the game-winning home run for the AL in the top of the 10th.“He hit a ball at the right moment and the right time to get us a win,” said Schoop, who has long admired the Seattle second baseman making his eighth All-Star appearance. “He’s the best for a reason. Not for [just right] now, but for a long time already.”Former Baltimore reliever Andrew Miller picked up the save for the AL, who has now won five consecutive All-Star Games to even the all-time series with the National League at 43-43-2.Despite being a low-scoring affair that featured 23 strikeouts and just three extra-base hits, the 88th Midsummer Classic wasn’t without innovation as the FOX telecast included several on-field interviews with players while the action was taking place. The highlight of the night in the novelty department, however, came from ex-Orioles slugger Nelson Cruz, who brought a cell phone to home plate and had his picture taken with veteran umpire Joe West before flying out in the sixth.“He told me about it,” said Schoop as he laughed about his former teammate’s plan. “I said, ‘You can’t. I bet you can’t do it.’ Then, he did it. It was nice — fun moment.”last_img read more
