Julianna Landis, Sports ReporterDecember 8, 2020Jump to CommentsShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare via EmailPrintIn the final series of the first half of its schedule, Minnesota faced an unpredictable matchup against Michigan, given that both teams would be losing key players temporarily to the World Junior Championship, but Minnesota prevailed to extend its win streak to seven straight to open the season.Ben Meyers put in the work against the Wolverines on Tuesday, assisting the first two goals of the game and also scoring the final goal of the night. In post-game media availability, Meyers said that after a scoreless first period, play opened up more as the game went on, allowing the Gophers to score.“The first period, it was just two good teams playing really hard and there were a lot of experienced guys, so there wasn’t many turnovers and not a lot of offense… just stuck to the game plan,” he said.Michigan’s only goal of the night came directly after Meyers’ 3-0 tally in the third, with Kent Johnson getting the Wolverines on the board.Minnesota had five chances on the powerplay on Tuesday, and it once again found the back of the net with the man advantage, this time from a gritty Sampo Ranta rebound in front of the crease. Ranta’s goal in the second period was quickly followed up with one from Bryce Brodzinski, and after a scoreless first period Minnesota went into the locker room leading 2-0 at the second intermission.last_img read more

first_imgLocalNewsPolitics Parliament to consider amendment to Registration of Electors Act by: Dominica Vibes News – May 22, 2017 Share Sharing is caring! Share Tweetcenter_img Share 289 Views   no discussions Attorney General Levi Peter (Photo Credit: OPM)When the Third Meeting of the Second Session of the Ninth Parliament under the Commonwealth of Dominica Constitution convenes at the House of Assembly tomorrow, Tuesday 23 May 2017, one of the bills scheduled to go through Second and Third Readings is a Bill to Amend Registration of Electors Act 2017. Attorney General Levi Peter sought to explain the part of the amendment, Confirmation of Registration of Electors, during a town hall meeting in Goodwill on Thursday 18 May 2017 as the amendment as according to him it is “causing some challenge or difficulty to some members of our society”.The Bill seeks to amend the Act with the insertion of a new section Part III. The section to be amended on the Order Paper for Tuesday’s sitting of Parliament which falls under the heading Part III Confirmation of Registration of Electors is as follows:30. (1) Subject to section 31(2), the Commission may, by Order published in the Gazette, declare a registration period during which each person registered as an elector for a polling district at the commencement of the registration period shall be required to confirm his registration and be issued with a national identification card in the manner prescribed. (2) Notwithstanding subsection (1), the register of electors, annual list and revised annual lists and revised annual lists published for each polling district under section 15 immediately prior to the commencement of the registration period, shall-(a) Continue to apply until a new register is published pursuant to section 31; and(b) Be used as the official record for the purpose of confirming the registration of electors and issuing national identification cards to electors under this Act. (3) The Commission may, by Order, extend the period referred to in subsection (1). 31. (1) In order to facilitate the confirmation in accordance with the Part of persons residing overseas, the office of any mission or embassy of the State or any other place approved by the Commission, may be designated as a registration office, and the registering, enrollment officer and assistant registering officer shall be appointed under the direction of the Chief Registration Officer for that purpose. (2) In an Order under section 30(1) the Commission shall specify the designated registration offices for the purposes of subsection (1). (3) A person who has confirmed his registration in accordance with this Act shall be issued with a national identification card in the same manner as if the confirmation had taken place within the State”. Peter explained, “In essence all that is, is if you imagine that you are registered let’s say in Roseau North and you decide to travel to Guadeloupe, to the United States, United Kingdom, other parts of Europe wherever, and you remain there for work and for other purposes and for…whatever the period may be, do you take the view that you should not be able to vote in Dominica?…In my view you are a Dominican citizen, you are and should be entitled to vote.”The amendment, he said, simply provides a registered voter the continued entitlement to vote provided that they have not been out of Dominica for more than five years. “I believe that you are entitled and should continue to be entitled to vote.”The Attorney General added that this is contrary to what is being suggested as “an attack on democracy” and is in fact “bolstering democracy” by ensuring that every citizen has the opportunity to vote if they wish to exercise that right. The Attorney General said in terms of the registration process, government is satisfied that the proposed changes in the amendment to the Registration of Electors Act are “changes which clarify and better or improve the existing legislation”.Under the heading Objects and Reasons, which accompany the Bill and all bills, it says this ‘This Bill seeks to amend and improve the Registration of Elector’s Act Chapter 203 namely the Act’. “So l would say, in so far as the Registration of Elector’s Act is concerned, you can be confident that your government has no intention of disenfranchising anybody, of attacking the democratic process, of undermining the democratic process, or in any way acting in a manner that is inappropriate and I can assure you that this government has not done so and will not do so,” Peter stated.last_img read more

Hee Young Park wins women’s Victoria Open

first_img SUBSCRIBE TO US Last Updated: 9th February, 2020 18:36 IST Hee Young Park Wins Women’s Victoria Open Former world No. 1 Ryu dropped out on the second playoff hole when she missed a birdie putt but Park and Choi continued until luck and nature intervened. COMMENT First Published: 9th February, 2020 18:36 IST Korea’s Hee Young Park, who came close to quitting golf last year, made par on the fourth hole of a three-way playoff Sunday to win the LPGA Tour’s Victoria Open from compatriots Hye-Jin Choi and So Yeon Ryu.On a course swept by a boisterous wind and as evening closed in Park, Choi and Ryu returned repeatedly to the tee on the dog-leg par-5 18th to play out a gripping finale after finishing tied at 281, 8-under par.Former world No. 1 Ryu dropped out on the second playoff hole when she missed a birdie putt but Park and Choi continued until luck and nature intervened.Choi’s tee shot on the fourth playoff hole came to rest against a pine cone in light rough left of the fairway, leaving her with no choice but to chip out. Her attempt to do so came up short, she put her next into a hazard, dropped out, and finally reached the fringe of the green in six.Park had an eagle putt to win the tournament on the first playoff hole but saw it slide by the cup. She faced three more holes in tough conditions before clinching her third LPGA title.”Last year was the worst year in my life and I had to go to q-school and I was going to stop golf because I thought (there was) no more game in my mind,” Park said. “Then I made q-school and I had a chance to play another year this year.”I never stopped and I think God gave to me this present.”The tournament at the 13th Beach Golf Links also feature a European Tour men’s tournament running alongside the women’s event.After Saturday’s third round, the men’s and women’s fields were reduced to 35 players each plus ties. The final round was played on the Beach course which was one of two courses used in the first two rounds along with the Creek course.Australia’s Min Woo Lee held his nerve on a day of high winds and high drama to win his first professional title in the same tournament his sister Minjee Lee won as an amateur in 2014 and again as a professional in 2018.Minjee Lee, who finished in a tie for sixth in the women’s event, was beside the 18th green when Min Woo tapped in a birdie putt to win the title by two shots from New Zealander Ryan Fox.Lee, 21, began the final round three shots clear of three-time European Tour winner Marcus Fraser and fellow Australian Travis Smyth. But his main challenge came unexpectedly from Fox who carded an 8-under 64 in his final round to move to 17 under for the tournament and to place pressure on the lead.Lee led by two shots at 19 under coming to the 17th but bogeyed and reached his final hole with only a one shot lead over Fox.He didn’t falter. He found the fairway, then the green to leave himself a 12 foot birdie put which ended just inches wide of the hole and tapped in for a win which has been long anticipated.”I just played awesome and I’m proud of myself,” Lee said after embracing his sister.”I was walking off 14 and I heard a roar and I was guessing (Fox) or someone in that group had made eagle or birdie. I just counted up and figured he could have eagled 16 or birdied 17 and eagled 18.”He was right. Fox birdied 16 and eagled 18 to complete his charge up the leaderboard.Fraser shared third with Robin Sciot-Siegrist of France who shot 68 to finish 14-under.(Image Credit: Pixabay/Representative Image) Associated Press Television News center_img FOLLOW US WATCH US LIVE Written By LIVE TVlast_img read more
