Southern Upland Way Diversion For Ramblers Put In Place During Bridge Repairs

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterTwitterShare to LinkedInLinkedInLinkedInWalkers advised of A701 bridge repairs – Scotland TranServ is advising ramblers and anglers using the Southern Upland Way/Annandale Way that it will be necessary to close a short section of the route near Beattock.On behalf of Transport Scotland, Scotland TranServ will replace a total of 20 concrete cope panels on the A701 bridge which spans the Southern Upland Way/Annandale Way and Evan Water from Monday 12th of June until Thursday 15th June, 2017. The trunk road however, will remain open throughout the works.Frank Quither, Scotland TranServ’s Project Manager said:“Inspections of the structure revealed some deterioration to these cope panels located above the Southern Upland Way/Annandale Way Footpath. If unattended this deterioration could present a potential hazard to walkers and anglers using this section of the route. Our works will deliver tangible, long term benefits to those using the path for walking and fishing.”The short £5k programme of work will remove the deteriorated vertical faces of cope panels on the exterior parapets on either side of the Evan Water. Access to work areas will be via the cycle path and existing verge on either side of the structure. No traffic management measures are required to undertake these works.A short diversionary route will be implemented for walkers while the work is carried out. This includes:Continuing NW on Barnhill Lane to Junction 15 of the M74SW through Junction 15, using the existing footpath. Return through footpath exitWhile the Southern Upland Way/Annandale Way is not directly part of our network, we acknowledge that essential maintenance works carried out on our structures may impact those using this walking route.We are scheduling a number of schemes that will deliver long-term lasting benefits to those using the trunk road network across South West Scotland.Andy Fraser, Scotland TranServ’s Operating Company Representative added:“Across the region, we’re working on behalf of Transport Scotland to prioritise such maintenance issues and deliver a programme of improvements as quickly, efficiently and safely as we possibly can. Working collaboratively with Police Scotland and the Local Authority, we have scheduled this short project to be delivered with maximum efficiency and minimal disruption.”last_img read more

Rotary Club of Portsmouth to host 5K run to assist schools

first_img Share Sharing is caring! The Rotary Club of Portsmouth is undertaking a grand fundraising drive to provide back-up water systems for schools in the north of the island.The event, which will take the form of a 5K fun run and beach bash on Monday 16 May 2016, is part of the Club’s post Tropical Storm Erika initiatives.President of the Rotary Club of Portsmouth, Lise van de Kamp told Dominica Vibes on Tuesday 10 May 2016, that all donations will go towards purchasing and installing the back-up water systems.“People that don’t want to run can also walk. I have staff members who are going to walk and even bring their kids along. So everybody is welcomed to come and join,” she informed.The run, which costs sixty-five ($65.00) per person, will commence at the Jenner field in Picard (part of the Ross University School of Medicine’s campus) and end at the Purple Turtle Beach. The $65.00 fee entitles participants to a t-shirt and water, in addition to bar-b-que at the beach. At the beach bash, there will be live music and chances to win prizes in raffle draws. “It’s a holiday and the day after the Jazz n’ creole in Portsmouth, so it is a very good excuse to stay over in the north for the Sunday night and hang out on the Monday to enjoy the walk”.Those who able to run, but cannot afford to pay the fee are asked to contact the Rotary Club of Portsmouth via Facebook, their website or calling 767 613-3001, as there are people who are willing to sponsor someone who can’t afford.The Rotary Club of Portsmouth plans to make this 5K run and beach bash an annual one. 143 Views   no discussions Tweetcenter_img Share Share EducationLocalNewsPrimarySecondary Rotary Club of Portsmouth to host 5K run to assist schools by: Dominica Vibes News – May 11, 2016last_img read more

Celtics embraces underdog role against Cavaliers

first_imgBoston Celtics forward Marcus Morris (13) reacts to a foul in their game against Philadelphia 76ers in the 2018 NBA Playoffs. GREG M. COOPER, USA TODAY SPORTS / REUTERS THE Boston Celtics are the second-seeded team in the Eastern Conference and possess home-court advantage for the best-of-seven conference finals against the Cleveland Cavaliers.Yet they are also viewed as the underdogs no matter which standard you use.The fourth-seeded Cavaliers invade TD Garden for Sunday’s series opener and they are looking to reach the NBA Finals for the fourth straight season. They also have a player named LeBron James on the roster.Add up the evidence and even the Celtics are just fine with being labeled the underdog in this matchup. “You’ve got everybody counting us out, but we knew from the beginning we’ve got each other,” Celtics guard Terry Rozier told reporters. “We weren’t gonna lay down for nobody, no matter who was counting us out. We weren’t going to just let the teams come in and punk us.“We were the No. 2 seed for a reason. With injuries, without, we were the No. 2 seed, so obviously we were doing something great all season and what (a reporter) said is true, you can keep counting us out. We’d rather (the media) count us out. We don’t want anybody on our side now. We’re doing good and we play better when our back is against the wall.”Celtics coach Brad Stevens also isn’t the least bit bothered by Cleveland being viewed as favorites.“We talked about it prior to the playoffs, nobody should love a challenge more, nobody should have more fun doing it,” Stevens said. “I think our guys have done a good job doing that.”Meanwhile, James isn’t buying into the chatter about how his squad will overwhelm the Celtics.He is well aware Boston is without his former Cleveland running mate in Kyrie Irving (knee) and only had marquee free-agent signee Gordon Hayward (ankle) for one quarter this season.But James sees a plethora of talent dotting the roster of a highly competitive team.“I think they are one of the most well-coached teams in our league,” James told reporters during his Friday media availability. “Obviously, you know what I’ve said about Brad Stevens before and his ability to get the most out of his guys, how great they are out of timeouts, late-clock situations as well, no matter who is on the floor or no matter who has played for them, he can put guys in position to succeed and get the most out of whoever has been in their lineup over the past few years, it’s not just this year.“I think it has been a little bit overblown this year because of the names that has been out. Obviously, with Kyrie and Gordon and the injuries with those two big guys, but he has gotten the most out of everybody he has ever put in his position since he’s gotten to Boston.”James is four victories away from reaching the NBA Finals for the eighth straight season.Getting there again would tie him with Boston’s Frank Ramsey for the fourth-longest such streak in NBA history, and would leave him behind three other Celtics’ standouts: Tom Heinsohn and Sam Jones with nine straight and Bill Russell with 10.“I haven’t reflected on it,” James said. “But I do know that this is my eighth straight conference finals, and I have an opportunity to play for a championship if I’m able to be successful in this conference finals, so I don’t take that for granted. You dream about being able to play in big games in the NBA, and even when I got to the NBA that was one of my only goals: to be as great as I can be, to play in big games in the NBA and be remembered, and I think I’ve done that in my career. Just trying to add onto it while I can.”James has been superb in the postseason with averages of 34.3 points, 9.4 rebounds and 9.0 rebounds, and the Celtics know stopping him completely is highly unlikely.“Our goal is not to stop LeBron, it’s to win the game,” Boston guard Jaylen Brown said. “That’s our mindset.” (Field Level Media/Reuters)last_img read more

Windies don’t fear anyone – Bravo

first_imgBRIDGETOWN, Barbados, (CMC):Marquee batsman Darren Bravo West Indies would not be overawed by their opposition at the upcoming ICC World Cup in England, but would be focussing on executing their unique brand of cricket.The two-time World Cup champions are not among the favourites for the May 30 to July 14 tournament largely due to their lowly number nine ranking, with hosts and world number England the hot favourites.“To be honest, most other teams are quality teams but having said that, when we played against England no one gave us a chance, so I think that once we concentrate on what we have to do as a team, I think that is the most important thing,” the left-hander said during the Windies training camp at 3W’s Oval.“We are not going to focus very much on the opposition. We have certain plans and certain roles we want to execute and I believe that the results will take care of itself. As I said before, no one gave us a chance against England and we went out there and proved that we can beat the best team in the world so we just have to go out there and continue believing in ourselves as much as possible.”Bravo was referring to the recent five-match series home series against England, which the hosts drew 2-2, with one match rained off.Written off before the start, West Indies played outstandingly after losing the opening match by 26 runs at Kensington Oval, rebounding to win the second match of the doubleheader by 26 runs.Rain forced the abandonment of the third ODI in Grenada before England clinched the fourth contest at the same venue, despite West Indies’ record 389 in pursuit of 419.West Indies crushed England by seven wickets in the final match in St Lucia, with Chris Gayle slamming an astonishing 77 off 27 balls to end the series with 424 runs.“I think it was a fantastic series for us as a team led brilliantly by Jason and Chris Gayle,” Bravo said.“I think Chris set the tone at the top of the order in the ODIs that gave the motivation to go out there and perform against the best team in the world. It was a very good series and I am happy that it was very competitive and it should give us confidence moving forward.”Bravo is part of the Windies 14-man squad preparing for the tour of Ireland, which runs from May 3-17 in Dublin. They will clash with the hosts and Bangladesh in the triangular series.The camp is being overseen by new interim head coach Floyd Reifer, who was appointed last week, and the experienced Bravo said he was making the most of the preparation, especially with former Test batsman Ramnaresh Sarwan playing a key role with the batting group.“The coach outlines what he wants from us and we try to come up with the brand of cricket we want to play,” said the 30-year-old Bravo, who averages 32 from 102 One-Day Internationals.“Moving forward the guys have been working on their technical areas as much as possible. Now we have Sarwan who came in for a couple of days to help us with our batting. He has been working tremendously well with us. I had a couple sessions, so far so good.“Hopefully he will be with us moving forward to Ireland because I believe with a young batting team like this, someone of Sarwan ‘s stature will mean a lot to us as a batting unit. We will see how it goes but so far the camp has been going well.“It has been a lot of hard work, fitness-wise and otherwise and we are enjoying it.”last_img read more

West Ham target will consider Hammers move if new contract doesn’t…

first_imgIn their Rome edition of their newspaper, the outlet explain that, as things stand, Edin Dzeko is heading towards an exit in the summer, and Inter and the Hammers are the two favourites to land him.Heading to Milan would require Mauro Icardi’s sale, while West Ham will need to convince Roma to sell at an adequate fee while paying the Bosnian a hefty wage, which they remain somewhat dubious about.However, the most important part of their report is that Dzeko, while seemingly open to a departure if it is necessary, is still ‘hoping’ to be offered a new contract with Roma.Embed from Getty ImagesThe Serie A club are reportedly looking for €15m, which is a decrease on previous claims they would want around €20m for the 33-year-old, and our guess is they’ll keep him around and maybe extend his contract by a year if no one comes forward.And so far, neither West Ham nor Inter have met their demands.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameBuild a City, Trade With Your Neighbors, Play With Your FriendsForge of Empires – Free Online GameUndoRaid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadEven Non-Gamers Are Obsessed With This RPG Game (It’s Worth Installing!)Raid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadUndoDating.comTop Successful Single Men in Tung ChungDating.comUndoPerfect-Dating.comReveal Tung Chung As The Best City to Date for Love & RomancePerfect-Dating.comUndoKeto减肥1個簡單的妙招一夜「融化」腹部贅肉(今晚試試)Keto减肥Undo熱門話題小心會長過頭…網友推爆:「真的長得超誇張!」熱門話題UndoSingles50Hong Kong: A 40+ Dating Site That Actually Works!Singles50UndoCoworking Space | Search AdsThe cost of shared office in Hong Kong might surprise youCoworking Space | Search AdsUndoInstant Voice Translator43 Languages Instant Voice Translator Flying Off Shelves in Hong KongInstant Voice TranslatorUndo Already setting itself up to be one of the stories of the summer, Edin Dzeko to West Ham continues to be the talk of the town in the Italian press, although Corriere dello Sport on Monday are trying to calm things down a bit.last_img read more

“Sané is a Bayern player in the summer” – Journalist claims…

first_imgThe player’s injury delayed their plans somewhat, but with him now back in training, the stories are now reemerging slowly.In fact, for Swiss journalist Marcel Reif, who was a commentator for many years on Sky Deutschland, there isn’t a doubt left in his mind about what will happen in the summer.The 70-year-old, who now has a new show with Bild called ‘Reif ist Live’, talked about many aspects of Bayern Munich, including their interest in the Manchester City forward.About the 24-year-old, he said, relayed by Bild: “For me, Sané and Bayern is done. They agree, and if a player wants to go away like this, Guardiola won’t keep him, no matter what. Sané is a Bayern player in the summer”.Some bold claims from Reif here, as there is, of course, no guarantee, as things stand, the German international will make the move.It will be interesting to see how often Pep Guardiola turns to the forward during the second half of the season once he gets his match fitness back, or if he’ll be happy to let him sit the rest of the campaign out knowing he has his mind set on a move to Bavaria.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this City-Building Game is a Must Have.Forge of Empires – Free Online GameUndo聽多多 Hearmore.asia1969年前出生的香港居民現可免費試戴頂尖的歐洲助聽器聽多多 Hearmore.asiaUndoRaid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadEven Non-Gamers Are Obsessed With This RPG Game (It’s Worth Installing!)Raid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadUndoSmart Tech TrendOver 55?

The NBA wants to change the timing of the draft

first_imgNBA drafta loterija | Foto: Bleacher ReportThe National Basketball Association (NBA) wants to change the draft ceremony for new players to a later date, reports ESPN viewer Adrian Vodzhnarovsky.The league will try to change the date of the draft to November 18, but before that there will be talks with the team general managers and the league management.Previously, the draft date was October 16, but the league and players’ association (NBPA) are currently negotiating a revision of the 2020 NBA draft date. A later draft ceremony would allow the league and the union to discuss amendments to the collective agreement and agree on a 2020/2021 agreement. annual seasonal wage ceilings as well as luxury tax thresholds.The start date of the free agent market would also be affected by this decision. However, a new possible start time has not yet been discussed with the NBPA. The free agent market is expected to start operating relatively soon after the draft.This year, Latvian striker Artūrs Kurucs has also applied for the NBA draft, but experts do not promise a place among 60 choices.ESPN story on NBA and NBPA targeting November 18 for the league’s 2020 Draft: https://t.co/uGTW2QOxYn– Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) September 9, 2020Previous articleActivists urge the IOC not to hold a 2022 OS in Beijinglast_img read more
