Cuomo is quoted as saying: “For the good of the party, this has to stop.” What about the good of the people? So, is it all a sham and so-called democratic government is really just party politics?Is Simcha Felder the only elected official who says that he’s “loyal to God, my wife and my constituents, and New Yorkers?” If so, we are headed toward the age of dictatorship and loss of independence. Scary, indeed, especially when the goal of some Democrats seems to be to disrespect our president and nothing more.Theresa PettograssoPattersonvilleMore from The Daily Gazette:Gov.

Andrew Cuomo to “unite against President Donald Trump” and to disband its caucus. All members of the Legislature were elected to represent their constituents in the best way possible, not to be bossed by activists and our governor to do things their way. How strange that the governor wants to “hold up New York as a bastion of liberalism,” but demands that these people do things his way. It seems to be a stifling return to the days of the Boss Tweed Machine, not liberalism.

The Overseas Indonesian Students Association Alliance (PPI-Dunia) has made a new Indonesian Museum of Records (MURI) record by hosting a web seminar (webinar) in January for 100 hours straight on its YouTube platform.The new achievement broke the previous record of a 36-hour webinar held by another organization.The webinar, which was held from Jan. 6 to 10, was divided into 50 sessions that were delivered by Indonesian students studying for bachelor’s, master’s or doctoral degrees in various campuses across the globe.In a statement sent to The Jakarta Post on Thursday, PPI-Dunia said the online seminar – which mostly discussed overseas scholarships – was aimed at providing a more solid database about educational information overseas for Indonesian students, viewing the difficulties often faced by prospective students to get adequate information about study opportunities.“Throughout the year, there are many activities that PPI-Dunia conducts to give information about schools or scholarships from countries around the world,” said Fadlan Muzakki, the coordinator of PPI-Dunia in the statement. “Such activities have yet to be properly organized and documented.”Read also: Indonesian students in China launch GenWi community to promote Indonesian tourismTraditionally, Fadlan gets help from his colleagues in the PPI branches in each country in setting up agendas and establishing collaborations with Indonesian students around the globe.Dyhan Ramadhan, a PPI-Dunia member and the webinar’s project leader, said one of the challenges during preparation for the record-breaking webinar was to invite Indonesian students in more than 40 countries to be the speakers.In order to make each session effective, Dyhan and his team had to find the most suitable time that fit the respective time zones of the speakers, moderators and participants.“It needs good teamwork. So, when those in the eastern part of the world are asleep, the western part could take over the duties,” he said in the statement.With more than 1,000 participants accessing the whole session, the webinar involved and connected Indonesians studying at home and abroad simultaneously.Topics :

Under FIFA rules regarding young players, Burnley would be entitled to compensation in that instance, but it is understood Sociedad would only be liable to pay £300,000 – leaving them plenty of room to offer a huge salary – while fellow English clubs could end up paying a fee 10 times that amount. Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers does not expect many, if any departures, from his first-team squad before Monday but he will allow 17-year-old Sheyi Ojo to go out on loan. After Jordon Ibe’s success at Derby in the first half of the season, Ojo, who has yet to make his senior debut but was on the bench for recent matches against Burnley and Leicester, is set for a temporary move to Sky Bet Championship strugglers Wigan. Clarets chief executive Lee Hoos said: “This type of move would violate Premier League rule V7 regarding transfers so simply cannot happen.” The Premier League confirmed Burnley’s interpretation, with rule V7.1 stating: “A Temporary Transfer to a Club may not take place in the Transfer Window in which the Transferor Club acquired the Player’s registration.” Both Burnley manager Sean Dyche and Ings have repeatedly insisted the 22-year-old will not leave Turf Moor this month, despite the potential for the club to garner a higher fee than the compensation they would be entitled to were he to leave in the summer. Contract negotiations remain ongoing, and Hoos said: “This is the last time we will be making any comment regarding the player’s future. “Over the course of the window, the player himself, Sean Dyche and the chairman have made it clear he won’t be going anywhere and we consider that the end of the matter.” Ings has made an impressive start to life in the Premier League, scoring seven goals so far this season, and there has been no shortage of interest. As well as Liverpool, Tottenham are reported to be tracking the former Bournemouth striker while Real Sociedad manager David Moyes watched the forward against Liverpool at Turf Moor on Boxing Day. Should Ings allow his contract to run out, it would more than likely spark a bidding war between a number of clubs in relation to the player’s wages. The Reds have emerged as the latest club to show interest in the England Under-21 striker, who is out of contract at the end of season. But Burnley released a statement stating the proposed deal, which was not confirmed or denied by Liverpool, would flout the rules. A reported Liverpool deal for Burnley striker Danny Ings that would see him loaned back to the Clarets for the rest of the season would be against Premier League rules. Press Association
Fisher admitted he was somewhat surprised to be paired with Broberg, but Clarke’s decision paid dividends as the pair cruised to the biggest win of the day. ” I didn’t really have an inkling me and Kris were going to play together until probably Thursday, so I was quite excited,” said Fisher, who was on the winning European team at Celtic Manor in 2010. “Clarkey explained why he put us together; apparently we make the most birdies together as a pairing. We were really up for the challenge come the first tee, and just kept saying to each other, come on, let’s keep the pedal down.” Asia captain Jeev Milkha Singh believed putting was the difference between the sides, adding: ” I think my team played really well today. I’m proud of my boys. “They were just a little unlucky with their putts, but that’s what the game is all about, whoever holes them, wins. I think they are going to work pretty hard on their putting for tomorrow and the day after. I’m excited about the next two days.” In between there were also wins for Ross Fisher and Kristoffer Broberg, who thrashed Prayad Marksaeng and KT Kim 6&4, and Shane Lowry and Andy Sullivan over Wu Ashun and Shingo Katayama, with the home side’s only win seeing Byeong-hun An and Thongchai Jaidee beat Danny Willett and Matt Fitzpatrick 3&1. Victor Dubuisson played through the pain barrier after suffering a knee injury on the 15th hole as he and Soren Kjeldsen halved their match with Danny Chia and Nicholas Fung. “A three-point lead after day one, it’s a wonderful start for Europe,” said Clarke, who will be taking nothing for granted after Europe squandered a 5-0 lead in the inaugural contest two years ago, which ended in a 10-10 draw. “There were a lot of matches there that it could have swung either way on the back nine. Halfway around Europe were leading in all the matches. I was on the radio to a few of the other guys and said, ‘This is match play, Asia are going to come back at some stage on the back nine, and that’s exactly what they did.’ “We had a strong couple of matches and managed to finish with a very good result.” Poulter was the last European team member to arrive in Malaysia after celebrating his 40th birthday in Las Vegas, but demonstrated his aptitude for team golf once more alongside the big-hitting Wiesberger. “It worked out nicely today,” Poulter said. “I think for the most part we put two balls in play. When you do that and you have good looks (at birdie), you don’t both have to make it on the same hole and that’s exactly what we did. “Darren said, ‘Listen, go out there first and get it done’ and that’s exactly what we did today. We dovetailed nicely, kept them under pressure and holed a few key putts, especially around the turn.” Clarke, who will also lead Europe in the Ryder Cup at Hazeltine in October, saw team talisman Ian Poulter lead from the front by partnering Bernd Wiesberger to a 4&3 win over Anirban Lahiri and Jeunghun Wang. And Clarke’s other wild card Lee Westwood also justified his selection by combining with fellow Englishman Chris Wood to beat Kiradech Aphibarnrat and SSP Chawrasia 2&1 in the final match. European captain Darren Clarke was delighted with his side’s performance as they claimed a three-point lead over Asia after the opening day of the second EurAsia Cup in Kuala Lumpur.

New Delhi (AFP) – Indian paceman Jasprit Bumrah said cricket should seek an “alternative” for shining the ball if the game’s governing body ban the use of saliva during the coronavirus pandemic.The International Cricket Council (ICC) is likely to implement a ban for the game’s return when they meet next week after receiving medical advice that spit poses a COVID-19 transmission risk.Handshakes, celebratory high-fives and hugs are also likely to be off-limits when international cricket resumes with safety protocols in place.“I was not much of a hugger anyway, and not a high-five person as well, so that doesn’t trouble me a lot,” Bumrah said in an ICC video chat with the former West Indies pace bowler Ian Bishop and the ex-captain of South Africa, Shaun Pollock.“The only thing that interests me is the saliva bit,” added the 26-year-old Bumrah.“I don’t know what guidelines that we have to follow when we come back, but I feel there should be an alternative.“If the ball is not well maintained, it’s difficult for the bowlers. The grounds are getting shorter and shorter, the wickets are becoming flatter and flatter. So we need something.”Pace bowlers usually try to make the ball swing through the air by shining one side on their clothing aided by using sweat or saliva and leaving the other half to become scuffed.Anil Kumble, chairman of the ICC cricket committee that recommended banning saliva, insisted the move was only an “interim measure”.Australian cricket ball manufacturer Kookaburra is developing a wax applicator that allows players to shine the ball without using saliva or sweat.But its use would need a change in the laws of cricket which forbid the use of any artificial substance to alter the ball.Test players have in the past been accused of using lozenges, petroleum jelly and resin to keep the shine on the ball, and also scuffing it with bottle tops, trouser zippers, grit or fingernails.The most notorious recent incident was in 2018, when Australian players attempted to alter the ball with sandpaper during a Test against South Africa in Cape Town, resulting in lengthy bans for the three involved — Steve Smith, David Warner and Cameron Bancroft.Bumrah, who has emerged as India’s lead paceman since his Test debut in 2018, has claimed 68 wickets in 14 Tests and 104 scalps in 64 one-day internationals.
