ST JOHN’S, Antigua (CMC): The West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) says it wants to stage a series of fast bowling camps as part of a plan to rekindle an area of the game that has been struggling in recent years. WICB director of cricket, Richard Pybus, made the announcement at the conclusion of the 10-round Professional Cricket League (PCL) Regional four-day Tournament on Monday. The WICB is pondering the introduction of an off-season training programme targeting fast bowlers after spinners dominated the just ended four-day tournament. “We are prioritising and looking at some camps for our fast bowlers, possibly some measures off season to prioritise fast bowling in the four-day competition,” said Pybus in an interview with WICB media. “This is going to be central to us getting that back at the heart of West Indies cricket again.” Spinners featured prominently during the tournament, including the top wicket- taker, Jamaican spinner Nikita Miller, who had 65 scalps in nine matches. “The competition has been still dominated too much by the spin bowlers,” said Pybus. “That is something that we will have to seriously address during the off season to make sure that we are prioritising the fast bowlers.” Guyana’s Leon Johnson, with 807, scored the most runs for the season, followed by Devon Smith of the Windward Islands, who scored 719 — though from two matches less. Guyana’s Vishal Singh and Barbados’ Royston Chase were other players who scored over 700 runs. “I think something which is exceptionally positive is the quality of the batting. We are getting a consistency in the scoring,” said Pybus. “We got a core group of young players who have put their hand up all the way through the competition. We are getting consistent with hundreds being scored. Volume of hundreds and volume of runs which I think is very positive.” Guyana Jaguars were crowned champions of the R4Day for the second straight year. They finished with 149 points — seven clear of nearest rivals Barbados Pride — to regain the George Headley/Everton Weekes Trophy, symbol of regional first-class supremacy. “The first season of the PCL was very rushed and the systems we wanted to put in place to be able to support it were not where we wanted them to be,” he said. “So this year is closer to where I would like to see the system in terms of providing support to the players and the structure of the season regarding the off season programmes for the players.”
The rest of the continent is catching up with South Africa’s established mining sector.(Image: MediaClubSouthAfrica.com. For more free photos, visit the image library) Africa’s economy is on track and could make a speedier recovery from the recession than the US. This is according to the World Bank’s Global Economic Prospects report for 2011. The report, released in mid-January, projected that sub-Saharan Africa would increase its gross domestic product (GDP) from 4.7% in 2010 to 5.3% for this year. That figure would be bumped up to 5.5% in 2012.The report specifically stated that prices in metals, minerals and oil, as well as greater investment in manufacturing and telecommunications companies, have contributed to the growth.According to Phumelele Mbiyo, Standard Bank’s Senior Africa Strategist for Global Market Research, the figures indicate that economic activity, especially in terms of mining and construction, is expanding in the region.“The reason for such an increase is because prices for commodities are pretty high and they have attracted investment, especially from emerging markets such as China,” he said.Mbiyo believes the average person would benefit from these positive projections, as companies are looking to employ locals.“There is already employment of locals in the mining and construction industries. There is going to be a lot of employment in future, especially by European and American based companies who have invested heavily in mining in Africa.”High continental growthHowever, the report indicated that the best growth rates were not to come out of South Africa, the region’s traditional economic hub. Instead, the highest figures came from countries such as Nigeria, Angola, Kenya, the Republic of Congo, Ethiopia, Mozambique, Botswana, Zambia, Malawi, and Tanzania.South Africa was projected at 3.5% for 2011 whereas other countries in the rest of the region were said to grow at an average of 6.4% for the same year.Mbiyo explained that this is not because South Africa’s growth is slowing, but rather because the other countries are starting new industries now and from a low base whereas South Africa had already established the same industries years ago.“Angola is set to grow by 7% on average whereas Ghana will average 13% in the next two years. It is because the latter is starting to produce oil,” said Mbiyo.He added that Africa should now focus on sustaining growth as the continent still lags behind other major developing and developed economies.

For Make-A-Wish® recipient, Jared, he and his family would often pick up geocache finds between home and the hospital. His early teenage years were often spent in hospitals from Aberdeen, South Dakota to Sioux Falls, South Dakota to the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota. He logged smileys all around the three medical centers.He says, “When I was in the hospital I would look on the website. I would look for trackables and take them to geocaches back home with me.” Jared123, as he’s known in the geocaching community, endured three major surgeries for a life-altering digestive issue. Through traveling to treatment, he and his family logged hundreds of miles. They tapped into geocaching to break the tension between medical procedures.Jared discovered he had been chosen for Make-A-Wish. Make-A-Wish grants the wish of a child diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition in the United States and its territories. Jared thought about where he could go and what he could do. Many children decide to take a trip to Disneyland or spend time with their family on a vacation to Hawaii.Jared (center) with his family and Make-A-Wish volunteersJared was born in the Seattle area, and when he learned that Geocaching HQ was located in Seattle, he made his choice.Make-A-Wish organized the visit and contacted local geocachers. An event called Jared From SD Wishes for your Presence was planned to welcome him to the Northwest. And Jared wanted to meet, and geocache with, one of the most creative geocache hiders on the West Coast of the U.S: goblindust.Geocachers from several counties away showed up to greet their fellow geocacher. Jared says, “I couldn’t’ really believe how many people came there. There were 85-90 people who attended. There were a whole bunch of volunteers and businesses who donated for the event.”Jared then took to the geocaching trail, claiming, The SUPER Pages as his favorite geocache of the trip and perhaps of all time. He says, “I found some of the most unique geocaches ever, or even in the world.” To offer you some proof, geocacher goblindust has a creative geocache found in this video (we just won’t tell you which one).Jared then visited Geocaching HQ, meeting with the founders of Geocaching.com and having lunch with the people who power the experience. He also led his dad to log his first geocache—the giant treasure chest in the lobby of Geocaching HQ.Jared and his dad at Geocaching HQYou can watch Jared’s tour of Geocaching HQ in this 6 second Vine video. Jared did what any geocache might do when they leave Geocaching HQ, he went geocaching some more.Geocachers who logged the event say, “Thanks to all who put this together, the vendors who donated, and to Jared for inviting us to help make his wish!!! It was a pleasure meeting you and your parents! Enjoy your visit, and hope you enjoy all the fun caches we have to offer! Goblindust…you’re a rockstar! TFTE!”Jared says the trip was a wish come true, “I guess I couldn’t really believe it. I’ll remember this day forever.”Share with your Friends:More

When Your Child Was in the HospitalYour child has epilepsy. People with epilepsy have seizures. A seizure is a sudden brief change in the electrical and chemical activity in your brain. The doctor gave your child a physical and neurological examination and did some tests to find out why.What to Expect at HomeIf the doctor sent your child home with some medicines, it is because more seizures could occur. The medicine can help your child avoid having seizures, but it does not guarantee that seizures will not occur. The doctor may need to change the dose of your childs seizure drugs or add new medicines. This may be because seizures happen even when your child is taking the medicines, or because your child is having side effects.Activity and LifestyleYour child should get plenty of sleep and try to have as regular schedule as possible. Try to avoid too much stress. You should still set rules and limits, along with consequences, for a child with epilepsy.Make sure your home is safe to help prevent injuries when a seizure takes place.Keep bathroom and bedroom doors unlocked. Keep these doors from being blocked.Younger children should not take a bath without someone present. Do NOT leave the room without taking your child with you. Older children should only take showers. See also: Bathroom safety – childrenPut pads on sharp corners of furniture.Place a screen in front of the fireplace.Use nonslip flooring or cushioned floor covers.Do NOT use freestanding heaters.Avoid letting a child with epilepsy sleep on the top bunk.Replace all glass doors and any windows near the ground with either safety glass or plastic.Most children with seizures can lead an active lifestyle. Plan ahead for the possible dangers of a certain activity. Activities should be avoided if a loss of consciousness or control would result in an injury.advertisementSome safe activities include jogging, aerobics, moderate cross-country skiing, dancing, tennis, golf, hiking, and bowling. Games and playing in gym class or on the playground are generally okay.Supervise your child when they swim.Your child should wear a helmet during bike riding, skateboarding, and other similar activities. See also: Preventing head injuries in childrenChildren should have someone to help them climb on a jungle gym or perform gymnastics.Ask your child?s doctor about your child participating in contact sports.It should be easy for a student to carry and take seizure medicines at school. Teachers and others at schools should know about your child?s seizures and seizure medicines.Your child should wear a medical alert or ID bracelet. Tell family members, friends, teachers, school nurses, babysitters, swimming instructors, lifeguards, and coaches about your childs seizure disorder.Seizure MedicinesDo not stop giving your child any seizure medicines without talking with your child?s doctor. Do not stop giving your child seizure drugs just because the seizures have stopped.Tips for taking seizure medicines:Do not skip a dose.Get refills as soon as you can before the medicine runs out.Keep seizure medicines in a safe place, away from young children.Store medicines in a dry place, in the bottle that they came in. Throw away all old bottles.If your child misses a dose:Have them take it as soon as you remember.If it is already time for the next dose, skip the dose that you forgot to give them and go back to the schedule. Do not give a double dose.If your child misses more than one dose, talk with the child?s doctor or nurse.Alcohol and illegal drugs can change the way seizure drugs work. Be aware of this potential problem in teenagers.The doctor or nurse will need to check your child?s blood levels of many seizure drugs on a regular basis.Understand that seizure drugs have side effects. If your child started taking a new drug recently, or the doctor changed your child?s dose, these side effects may go away. Always ask the child?s doctor about any side effects. Also talk to your childs doctor about foods or other medications that can change the blood levels of anti-seizure drugs.How to Respond to a SeizureOnce a seizure starts, there is no way to stop it. Family members and caregivers can only help make sure the child is safe from further injury and call for help, if needed.When a seizure occurs, the main goal is to protect the child from injury and make sure the child can breathe well. Try to prevent a fall. Help the child to the ground in a safe area. Clear the area of furniture or other sharp objects. Turn the child on their side to make sure the childs airway does not get obstructed during the seizure.advertisementCushion the child?s head.Loosen tight clothing, especially around the child?s neck.Turn the child on their side. If vomiting occurs, turning the child on their side helps make sure that they do not inhale vomit into their lungs.Stay with the child until they recover, or professional medical help arrives. Meanwhile, monitor the child?s pulse and rate of breathing (vital signs).Things to avoid:Do NOT restrain (try to hold down) the child.Do NOT place anything between the child?s teeth during a seizure (including your fingers).Do NOT move the child unless they are in danger or near something hazardous.Do NOT try to make the child stop convulsing. They have no control over the seizure and are not aware of what is happening at the time.Do NOT give the child anything by mouth until the convulsions have stopped and the person is fully awake and alert.Do NOT start CPR unless the child has clearly stopped having the seizure and is still not breathing and has no pulseWhen to Call the DoctorCall your child?s doctor if your child has:Seizures that have been happening more oftenSide effects from medicationsUnusual behavior that was not present beforeWeakness, problems with seeing, or balance problems that are newCall 911 if:A seizure lasts more than 2 to 5 minutes..Your child does not wake up or have normal behavior within a reasonable time after a seizure.Another seizure starts before your child returns to awareness after a seizure ends.Your child had a seizure in water or appears to have inhaled vomit or any other substance.The person is injured or has diabetes.There is anything different about this seizure compared to the person?s usual seizures.ReferencesFoldvary-Schaefer N, Wyllie E.

Former Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III won the Heisman Trophy in 2011 and is one of the most accomplished players in BU history. He’s had some rough sledding in the NFL the past two seasons, but this morning he returned to where he played his best football. Griffin is back at Baylor for the Bears’ Pro Day today, and he got a workout in beforehand with one of his former wide receivers, Lanear Sampson.We wonder if Griffin will throw at all during the Pro Day as an extra arm for receivers running routes. Even if he does, he won’t be the most-watched QB at the event. That title goes to current BU signal caller Bryce Petty, who is trying to raise his draft stock.
Auburn Sand Pit WorkoutToday was definitely not a lazy Sunday for some of Auburn’s football players. Tigers’ wide receiver Dhaquille Williams and a couple of his teammates spent some time working out in a sand pit. It’s 92 degrees in Auburn, Ala., today. So it was probably a pretty rough workout. “It’s going to pay off,” Williams said. Auburn opens its 2015 season Sept. 5 against Louisville in the Georgia Dome.
