Hector John (file photo).Parliamentary Representative for the Salisbury constituency and Opposition Leader Hector John says statements by Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit that he has failed to effectively represent the people of his constituency in and out of parliament is unfortunate.Prime Minister Skerrit lashed out against the Salisbury MP for not bringing the challenges of the people of Salisbury to the fore.Skerrit told the media that Hector John has failed to effectively represent the people of Salisbury in and out of parliament.He said John has failed to bring the challenges of the people of Salisbury to the fore.But Hector John says his representation in his constituency has been effective. “It is unfortunate for the prime minister to make that statement I am always in my constituency. I am always on the ground. I am always in my village. What got the prime minister mad is when a local television station showed the deplorable state of the farm access roads in Salisbury,” he said.He said it showed that the government hnd neglected agriculture totally.“Farmers couldn’t access their farms because of the poor deplorable access roads. I am only the MP for over a year but the former parl-rep Earl Williams had been asking for assistance. We have not seen anything,’ he added.John said further that the constituency has been treated unfairly by the DLP government because of their lack of support to the Dominica Labor Party.

Jones facing discipline, questions after failed drug test

first_imgWhat’s in store for your animal sign this year Jones has been provisionally suspended by USADA, which administers the UFC’s anti-drug policy. The California State Athletic Commission also has jurisdiction over Jones, who regained his light heavyweight title July 29 with a third-round stoppage of Daniel Cormier at UFC 214 in Anaheim. He failed a test conducted on a sample collected one day before the bout.“If this holds up, and he ends up getting (a suspension of) two, three (years), it’s probably the end of his career,” White said.Under its privacy rules, USADA won’t announce the substance for which Jones tested positive unless the fighter divulges it.Jones’ agent, Malki Kawa, appeared on “The MMA Hour” podcast later Wednesday and said the fighter was told he had tested positive for turinabol, an anabolic steroid. Kawa said Jones passed two tests earlier in July, and the fighter is wondering whether he took a tainted nutritional supplement in the weeks before the bout.Kawa posted a strident defense of his client on Facebook on Wednesday.ADVERTISEMENT UFC President Dana White said Wednesday that the promotion likely won’t know for several weeks whether the test results will be confirmed after an examination of Jones’ backup sample. Any potential discipline must wait until after the adjudication process afforded to every fighter.But unless some extraordinary reason surfaces for Jones’ latest failed test, the man widely considered the world’s best pound-for-pound fighter is facing another lengthy absence during his prime.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSEnd of his agony?

He’s done enough damage to himself,” White said while promoting Conor McGregor’s boxing showdown with Floyd Mayweather this weekend.“His dad said it: Jon is his own worst enemy,” White added. “Boy, is that true. But sitting here today, it’s not over yet. He’s got to go through the process. Maybe there was something crazy that happened for this stuff to get into his system, so I don’t know.” LATEST STORIES “I know how hard he worked to get back to where he’s at,” Kawa wrote. “This is definitely heartbreaking. He (definitely) didn’t cheat or use steroids. But I’m with him more now than the night he won the belt.”Jones hasn’t publicly commented on the third failed test of his career.He tested positive for cocaine in 2015, later publicly acknowledging he had used the drug. He then received a yearlong suspension in 2016 for what he claimed was a sexual enhancement pill. His fight against Cormier was his first since that suspension ended.Penalties are compounded for multiple failed tests, and a multiyear suspension would leave the UFC without one of its rising pay-per-view draws. Jones’ bad-boy image actually appears to have made him more marketable for the UFC, which has a current dearth of pay-per-view stars.Brock Lesnar, Ronda Rousey, McGregor and Georges St. Pierre are all in various stages of retirement, comebacks or more lucrative side jobs, with only St. Pierre currently scheduled for an MMA fight.Jones’ mistake also throws two weight classes into upheaval.White said Cormier is likely to regain the UFC light heavyweight title, which he held twice after Jones was stripped of the belt for his first two failed tests. Cormier also reigned atop the division while Jones was sidelined following his arrest over a hit-and-run accident.Cormier has never lost to anyone but Jones, but the good-natured star will be in the same awkward position in which he found himself during Jones’ previous forced absence.And Jones appeared to be ready to make an impact on the UFC heavyweight division. White had been talking to Jones’ camp about matching him with heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic in Detroit later this year in what would have been a blockbuster pay-per-view matchup.Instead, Miocic must find a new opponent for his belt — and any matchup that the UFC can make will be less intriguing than a showdown with Jones.

How’s this for a Manchester United line up without Wayne Rooney?

first_img 11 6. Bastian Schweinsteiger (centre midfield) – With Michael Carrick’s fitness a consistent problem, Schweinsteiger was a crucial signing in the summer. The German’s performances have been satisfying, but the major issue could be his ability to handle the big games. 4. Chris Smalling (centre back) – Louis van Gaal recently voiced his belief that Smalling is a future captain of Manchester United in the making. The centre-back has been the standout player for the Red Devils this season, and credit must be handed to van Gaal for aiding the 25-year-old’s long awaited progression. 11 11 9. Ander Herrera (attacking midfield) – Herrera is adored at Old Trafford and is a name that Manchester United supporters always hope to see on the team sheet. While Juan Mata looks far more at ease in a central position, Herrera is the more versatile, and looks to be the ideal player to fill the No.10 role. Van Gaal, however, must give him a consistent run in the side. 2. Matteo Darmian (right back) – Antonio Valencia started at right back in the Manchester derby at the weekend and put in a fine performance. However, Louis van Gaal should not start chopping and changing his defence. Darmian has been a regular in the side and should remain so. 1. David De Gea (goalkeeper) – see who else makes the Rooney-less line up by clicking the arrow above – Can you imagine if De Gea had refused a new contract and joined Real Madrid in the summer? This would have been little short of a disaster, with the Spaniard remaining one of the finest goalkeepers in Europe. 11 10. Memphis Depay (left wing) – Depay, a major signing in the summer, has failed to live up to the high expectations at Old Trafford so far. But he is not a lost cause. His progression at Old Trafford could hinge on how van Gaal handles the former PSV Eindhoven winger during his spell out of the side. He has suffered for the last two matches on the bench, but it may now be time to see his response to his axing. 5. Marcos Rojo (left back) – Rojo failed to impress in his first season in Manchester, and while his start to the new campaign was slow, his performances in the last two games have been superb. If he can sustain his form, Luke Shaw may face a battle to get back in the side upon his return from injury. 11 7. Morgan Schneiderlin (centre midfield) – It has taken a while for Schneiderlin to kick into gear at Manchester United, but the last few games, he has finally put in the performances that he consistently delivered at Southampton. He offers essential balance in midfield, and his partnership with Bastian Schweinsteiger will be key this season. 11 11 8. Juan Mata (right wing) – Mata may favour playing centrally, with pace not one of his attributes, but he continues to offer an attacking threat out on the wing, thriving in the space offered. What’s more, playing on the right flank allows the Spaniard to cut in on his magical left foot. 11. Anthony Martial (striker) – The Frenchman was considered a gamble signing upon his arrival for a fee of £36m; however, with three goals in five appearances for United, Martial has certainly done enough to warrant a start as the leading centre-forward ahead of Rooney. Martial has effortlessly coped with the physicality, the pace and the pressure in the Premier League, and should van Gaal continue to play him out wide, his natural ability in front of goal will only be wasted. 11 11 11 3. Phil Jones (centre back) – Daley Blind has often deputised at centre-back, but it is high time an out-and-out defender partnered Chris Smalling. The former Blackburn Rovers man is yet to fulfil his potential, but a combination of Jones and Smalling is certainly the preferred option. The first Manchester derby of the season finished goalless at Old Trafford, and at the final whistle, a number of Manchester United supporters passed the blame for their side’s failure to threaten City goalkeeper Joe Hart on to Wayne Rooney.ANGRY RED DEVILS FANS TURN ON THEIR CAPTAIN AFTER DERBY DRAWFrom complaining that the Premier League will never be won with Rooney up front to stating he is finished at this level, the England international suffered heavy criticism.And while such comments are harsh on one of the Premier League’s all-time top scorers, his performances has left many wondering whether manager Louis van Gaal should field a team without the club captain in the starting line up – if simply to experiment. Therefore, talkSPORT has put together an XI that doesn’t include Rooney, and has an inspired young Frenchman leading the line…Take a look by clicking the yellow arrow above, right. 11last_img read more
