first_imgThe Government revealed plans are afoot to rename the Trelawny Multi-Purpose stadium the Usain Bolt Sport Academy, after the iconic Jamaican sprint legend.Speaking at a press briefing at Jamaica House yesterday, Minister with Responsibility for Sports Natalie Neita-Headley told the media that it is a matter of priority, as it is “near and dear to Prime Minister Portia Simpson Miller”.”It (renaming the stadium) has been the prime minister’s dream, not just since Beijing 2015, but it will reflect her desire to have that stadium in his (Usain Bolt’s) home parish named appropriately – the Usain Bolt Sport Academy,” Neita-Headley outlined yesterday.”We would not do so, however, until the completed finance of putting in a track is realised,” she assured.Bolt is a six-time Olympic gold medallist and has won 11 IAAF World Championship gold medals.She noted that $26 million has been approved for the installation of an irrigation system at the facility.The stadium was built in 2007, through an agreement with the People’s Republic of China and the Jamaican Government, which put up at least US$30 million to have it completed. It hosted the opening ceremony and warm-up matches during the 2007 Cricket World Cup in the Caribbean.White ElephantThe stadium currently hosts the annual Jamaica Jazz and Blues concert. Some Jamaicans call it a ‘white elephant’, however, as it is scarcely utilised. However, Neita-Headley believes naming it after Bolt will attract international audiences.”I don’t think we can ever, ever refer to anything that is associated with the legendary Usain Bolt as a white elephant,” Neita Headley said.”I think it will be a great representation of that venue. I love it and I think many Jamaicans love it. It is a great location and I think may people across the world, including sportsmen and women, will want to associate with that venue, more so if it is the Usain Bolt Sport Academy,” she stressed. not giving a specific timeline when it would be ready, and added: “I can tell you that it is very near and dear to the prime minister and with that I can tell you that it comes with a great sense of urgency.”last_img read more

first_imgDear Editor,As a long-standing observer of the University of Guyana, being a past student and faculty member several years retired, I cannot help but add my voice to Dr Mark Kirton’s and those of several people writing on social media, newspapers, and commenting in high circles about the matter of Honorary Degrees at the University of Guyana.The response of the University of Guyana’s Public Relations Officer, Ms Paulette Paul, who should know better, is deliberately misleading and untruthful in many parts.She should know better than to try to pull wool over the eyes of the tax paying Guyanese public, who have a right to seek answers and to ask questions, since their dollars fund this University.1. The Vice Chancellor cannot, and should not, announce that he is going to confer any degree, academic of otherwise, upon anyone, since he is not able to do this without a due process, whether or not the University Act says the University can confer degrees.The fact is that neither the Council nor the Academic Board has seen a proposal or request from the Vice Chancellor for them to consider the granting of honorary degrees.2. It is the practice of this Vice Chancellor, and the Council seems none the wiser, to make critical and far-reaching decisions which fall solely in the purview of this Council or other bodies, and to bring these to the Council for ratification. He has done this with appointments of his many and growing Cabinet, new appointments, renewal of contracts for high officials, and even with payments of millions in lieu of leave. When asked for details, he sometimes rants that “either people trust him or they don’t”. With a University in close to $500 million deficit, accountability cannot be reduced to trusting an individual. This is a national strategic asset, and it must be treated as such.   The new and mostly very young Council must not allow this to continue. Had they been allowed to fulfill their oversight roles, the World would not be hearing that the VC, Prof Griffith (I am that I am), is conferring anything when no  authority has sanctioned this yet.3. While UG is legally able to confer honorary and other academic degrees, the big question is whether at this time it should; and if it should, by what procedure, and what conditions need to apply. It can also award honorary medals of different kinds and other degrees, but there must be a system, and it cannot be that the authority to do this is arrogated to the bow-tied one who thinks that he can use the media in his campaign of personal pomposity. UG is the national University, not the personal fiefdom of one man and his cronies.At least the media is doing the job of asking the hard questions, if no one else will.Let’s do the right thing by the right means, and let the UG Council do its job in service of this nation.Sincerely,Name withheldlast_img read more

first_imgA scene from William Kentridge’s I am not me, the horse is not mine, which is currently on display at the Tate Tanks.(Image: Absolute Arts)A still from Otobong Nkanga’s Stripped Bare, a series of 10 photographs of structures taken in the west of Nigeria.(Image: Otobong Nkanga)MEDIA CONTACTS • Helen BeeckmansTate press office+44 20 7887 4941/4940Gwinyai NhapataLondon’s prestigious Tate Gallery has turned its eyes to Africa, with plans to bring modern art from the continent to international attention through a two-year programme of exhibitions and performances.The intercontinental Across the Board programme started on 24 November with the official opening at the Tate Modern in London.The opening event featured performances in the Tanks, a facility built for performance, film and live works. Nigerian artist Otobong Nkanga, known for her multi-media focus on land and architecture, and outspoken Angolan performance artist Nástio Mosquito were the stars of the show.Following the launch, the project will be continued in three African cities over the next two years – Accra in Ghana, Lagos in Nigeria, and Douala in Cameroon.The programme, as well as a curatorial post for African art currently held by Spanish-born Elvira Dyangani Ose, and various new acquisitions from well-known African artists all arose from a partnership between Tate and the Guaranty Trust Bank (GTB) of Nigeria.The acquisitions include the 12-part Museum of Contemporary African Art by Beninese Meschac Gaba, which will go on display in its complete form in the UK in 2012. Created between 1997 and 2002, the work consists of 12 rooms that represent, to some extent, a biography of the artist – Gaba was married in 2000 in the Marriage Room, according to reports. He also meant it as a critique of Western culture, which, the artist felt, has not given African art its due. Other rooms include the Salon, the Restaurant, the Shop and the Music Room.The work was partly bought by Tate through its acquisitions fund, and partly donated by Gaba.Other acquisitions include A Visionary Modernist, an exhibition of nearly 100 works from over five decades of the international career of Sudan’s Ibrahim El-Salahi, whose work fuses European, African, Islamic and Arab influences; Nigerian photographer JD Okhai Ojeikere, known for his striking images of hairstyles; Cameroonian photographer Samuel Fosso; Ghanaian sculptor El Anatsui; and the late Aina Onabolu, considered a pioneer of art education in his homeland of Nigeria.South Africa’s William Kentridge is represented by a 2008 video installation titled I am not me, the horse is not mine, on display in the Tanks until 20 January, and patrons will be able to view images by award-winning photographer David Goldblatt.The Kentridge piece consists of eight six-minute films that share a single soundtrack, played in a continuous loop at the same time across the gallery’s walls.Exploding onto the world art sceneBut the exhibition of African art is not the result only of a pull from outside; there is also a dedicated push for exposure happening on the continent. The Tate’s partnership with GTB will help the institution improve its holdings of African art and enhance African artists’ international exposure.“The partnership between Guaranty Trust Bank and Tate aims to bring the work of African art to the attention of a new audience both in Africa and on the international level,” said GTB MD Segun Agbanje. “We are committed to this and other art related initiatives because we know African artists have a lot to offer the world.”Tate director Nicholas Serota said: “We are conscious that there is art being made across the world and these areas outside Europe and North America cannot be regarded as the periphery.” Serota also denied that the African focus came about because of a crisis in British or European art.For the past decade, Tate has been actively collecting art from outside Europe and North America. Tate Modern director Chris Dercon said that the institution is “committed to building a truly international collection showing African artists as part of a global history of modern contemporary art.”A collection committee set up in 2002, consisting of Tate curators and private collectors directed to pursue art from Latin America, guided the birth of several other committees targeting the Middle East, North Africa, South Asia, Russia, Eastern Europe and Africa.While the partnership has been welcomed by the majority of people in the art world, there has been some opposition to this internationalisation of African art, with critics accusing Tate of plundering the best of African art in neo-colonial fashion. The gallery has repudiated these accusations, saying the quantities are, in reality, too small to make a difference.“It is important for African art to be of a major international narrative,” said Ose. “We are not taking everything out of Africa, but we need to tell the whole story of modernity.” Ose also mentioned other projects that will emphasise the less commercial aspect of African contemporary art.“We are recognising that we need to collect art across the world,” said Serota.“The way art history has been written over the past decades has been through a focus of national histories,” said Dercon. “We are trying to broaden that and show an international history of art.”last_img read more

first_imgBen Stokes smashed a quick-fire century to guide Rising Pune Supergiant to a five-wicket victory over Gujarat Lions on Monday.Electing to field first on winning the toss, Pune dismissed the visitors for 161 runs in 19.5 overs but chasing the target, initially made heavy weather of their chase before reaching it with one ball left.Stokes played a starring role, plundering 103 runs off just 63 balls producing seven boundaries and six hits into the stands along the way.Pacers Basil Thampi and Pradeep Sangwan bowled well for the visitors, returning figures of 2/35 and 2/38 respectively.Young leg-spinner Ankit Soni also bowled well, conceding just 16 runs in his four overs although he was unlucky not to get a wicket.Pune were off to a shaky start, losing three wickets in the first two overs.Sangwan struck the first blows for Gujarat, sending back Ajinkya Rahane and Steven Smith in the opening over, while Thampi trapped Manoj Tiwary leg before in the next over with a faster delivery pitched on a fuller length, which surprised the right-hander by the extra pace.Rahul Tripathy and Stokes then got together and attempted to bring the innings back on track with a 32-run stand which came off 24 balls.But the partnership was broken thanks to an accurate direct hit by Aaron Finch which caught Tripathy short of the his crease.Stokes had pushed a James Faulkner delivery towards long-on and completed the first run comfortably. But attempting a second run proved to be disastrous as Finch produced some superb fielding to hit the stumps at the non-striker’s end.advertisementStokes was then involved in another crucial stand with Mahendra Singh Dhoni as the duo added 76 runs between them off 64 balls to take Pune to a comfortable position.Thampi brought the partnership to an end with a back of the hand slower ball which Dhoni hit into the hands of Brendon McCullum at long-off.However, Daniel Christian joined Stokes in the middle and the duo proceeded to carry Pune across the line.Pune thus bolstered their claim to a play-off spot, as they strengthened their grip on the fourth spot with 12 points from 10 matches.Gujarat are at the sixth place on the eight-team table with six points from 10 matches.Earlier, leg-spinner Imran Tahir (3/27) and medium pacer Jaydev Unadkat (3/29) starred for Pune as they bowled out Gujarat Lions for a moderate total.Gujarat got a very good start, with McCullum (45) and Ishan Kishan (31) putting up a 55-run stand for the opening wicket in six overs.But Tahir’s smart bowling, coupled with some reckless batting from the visitors, meant that Gujarat needed Dinesh Karthik’s damage control effort of 29 to reach 161.Jharkhand teenager Ishan was particularly impressive, showing his stroke-making skills after a quiet first three overs. McCullum too matched him shot-by-shot.Tahir broke the stand as Ishan was caught by Washington Sundar at short third man. Suresh Raina (8) too perished soon, falling short of attempting a double of his own batting as Ajinkya Rahane threw to wicket-keeper Dhoni to get rid of the visiting captain, with Gujarat at 71/2 in eight overs.South African Tahir continued his fine bowling as he sent back Aaron Finch and Dwayne Smith in successive deliveries in the 10th over, as Gujarat were reduced to 94/4. While Finch gave a return catch, Smith was undone by a googly as he swung his bat.McCullum, who saw all the wickets crumbling in front of him, was the next one to go, after being caught by Rahane at extra cover off Shardul Thakur’s bowling, as Gujarat lost their fifth wicket for 109 in 11.5 overs. It was a reckless shot from the New Zealander, who should not have taken the risk at that point of time.Later, Karthik and Ravindra Jadeja (19 off 12) tried their best to take Gujarat past 160.Unadkat’s three-wicket haul at the death ensured that Pune kept things under control as the left-armer accounted for Jadeja, James Faulkner (6) and Pradeep Sangwan (1).last_img read more
