You’ve seen them on our streets in our homes and on the worried faces of our friends and family.”She said the movement was formed by a “group of concerned community members that came together” with a common goal of supporting those affected by the housing crisis and to “take collective action to demand change”.“I don’t think I’m being too dramatic when I say that probably everyone here is affected by this, the housing crisis or at least know someone who’s affected.”“By coming out today, you have shown that the people in Limerick aren’t going to take it any longer. Underneath it all, we know that there are only two types of people in the housing struggle – the people that profit from it,  and the people who suffer from it.“We also know that there is ultimately more of us than there is of them,” the spokeswoman explained.

UWP leader say the “people” want James to lead them

first_img Share Share Share Hon. Ronald Green. (file photo)Leader of the United Workers Party (UWP) Ron Green has reported that the Nominations Committee of the party has taken a decision to nominate former leader Edison James as the new political leader.According to Green, the committees’ decision stems from widespread calls from within the party to have James lead the party.“The meeting was a nomination committee meeting which is a constitutional organ within the party which meets every period before a delegate’s conference. There was no delegate’s conference in 2009 because of the snap elections and none in 2010 because of the impending court decision. The committee looked at the leadership of the party and I have decided and indicated that I will not be putting up my name for the position of political leader,” Green explained.He said “my own reading from people I have talked with in every corner of the country from the constituencies that I have been on contact with, is that there is a grassroots resounding call for Mr. James to return to leadership and I think the party is responding to that call which has come from many corners of the country,”.Green said he will continue to play a role in the party.“I have been in action. I have my own political style and I think that the country is looking for opportunities to bring the new blood into the party,” he added.Dominica Vibes News Sharing is caring!center_img Tweet LocalNews UWP leader say the “people” want James to lead them by: – December 19, 2011 26 Views   3 commentslast_img read more

Syracuse looks to restore confidence with strong performance at Spring Fling tournament

first_img Published on March 12, 2013 at 12:36 am Contact Debbie: [email protected] | @debbietruong Facebook Twitter Google+ Attitude and confidence.That’s what’s missing from this season, and that’s what captain Morgan Nandin says Syracuse needs to close out games and shake a disappointing 5-9 start to the season.“We just got to learn how to win again. We’ll be winning up to the seventh inning and then we kind of get scared,” Nandin said. “We got to have that attitude. Go up to the box confident.”With encouragement from the team’s captains, Syracuse looks to restore that attitude Tuesday when they kick off the weeklong Spring Fling Tournament in O’ahu, Hawaii. There, the Orange will face the likes of Utah, California, Baylor and Hawaii. Mental errors and low confidence have unnerved the young team, as Syracuse has dropped nine games in 14 tries. Four games have been decided by one run. Last season, the team went through 29 games before tallying the same number of losses.With the exception of Jasmine Watson, Nandin and redshirt senior Gaby Torzilli, the infield is occupied by freshmen and sophomores and the shaky confidence level of the team reflects that.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“Experience on the field is the biggest difference from last year,” head coach Leigh Ross said.As captains, Watson, Veronica Grant and Nandin, have taken responsibility for corralling the young team’s spirits when hiccups do arise on the field. Each captain provides a distinct leadership quality — Nandin leads by example, Watson plays the role of “loving teddy bear,” and Grant guides players with her vocality and natural leadership instincts, Nandin said.The trio of captains divides the on-the-field communication — Watson and Nandin man the infield and Grant the outfield. Watson has noticed the team’s nerves shaken on small errors such as missed ground balls.“I think we’re getting kind of caught up in our own world, our own minds and we’re not really thinking as a team,” Watson said.In addition to the on-field communication, Grant has lifted the team as an offensive stalwart. When the team’s come down on itself after a disappointing sequence, Syracuse has rallied around Grant’s strong offensive play, Nandin said. On the season, Grant has wrangled five home runs and 12 runs batted in.“When the team’s been struggling, Ronnie has been crushing the ball. Absolutely crushing it,” Nandin said.” I know, if we’re falling behind, we’ll make an error or they’ll score, Ronnie comes up to bat, crushes a home run.”But in order for the team to dig itself from the loss column, Syracuse will need more than Grant’s effectiveness.Syracuse returned to fundamentals in preparation for the trek to Hawaii, swapping team practice for smaller workouts where they broke down the mechanics of hitting and fielding, an effort Nandin thinks will pay off when SU looks to rebound in Hawaii.“We’re really breaking it down to fundamentals,” she said. “You can tell the infield has a lot more confidence than it did last weekend. We’re really starting to come together and trust each other.“I feel like we’re going to into this tournament with a lot more attitude and confidence.” Commentslast_img read more
