It turned out to be a very Good Friday for the Sharks. It was their first win at home for 2018 as they broke even for the season – two wins and two losses.Even more tellingly they managed to frustrate an uncharacteristically error-prone Melbourne, who did not cross the Sharks line all night, though Ryan Hoffman was held up in the 33rd minute.The last time the Storm were held try-less was also at the hands of the Sharks, 11-2 in round six last year at AAMI Park.But to mirror the ill-feeling between the 2016 grand final opponents, the last five seconds of the game was spent with players from both sides locked in a melee.The pushing and shoving continued even after the full-time hooter sounded as Sharks co-captain Paul Gallen and Melbourne prop Nelson Asofa-Solomona refused to let go of each other. Two minutes before full-time Melbourne centre Will Chambers had been placed on report for a grapple tackle.The visitors’ agitation levels grew to such heights that they back-chatted referee Matt Cecchin three times and were marched 10 metres every time.But when Cameron Smith tried it a fourth time Cecchin sent him to the sin-bin in the 52nd minute.The 13,000-strong Cronulla faithful turned on the Test captain, jeering and booing him all the way off the field and up the tunnel.Brandon Smith, who came into the side at the 11th hour for the injured Kenny Bromwich (elbow) slipped into the No.9 role.A momentous victory over Melbourne came without the two key off-season signings for the Sharks – Josh Dugan and Matt Moylan. Both were ruled out with leg injuries, which the club says should only keep them out a week.It was Moylan’s second straight week on the sidelines, allowing Trent Hodkinson to show his wares again under the nose of coach Shane Flanagan.Cronulla showed both great resilience and significant ill-discipline themselves in the first half.They had a 10-6 penalty count against them, were down to 12 men whileLuke Lewis was in the sin-bin, and still the Storm were unable to score a try. Maybe that could be put down to the fact the Sharks only missed five tackles in the opening 40 minutes.In fact, it took the Storm 36 minutes before they registered any points. They finally got on the scoreboard with a Joe Stimson penalty goal.The Sharks’ Holden Cup under 20 centre of the year in 2017, Jesse Ramien, is showing he is first grade quality.Ramien sent a one-handed flick pass perfectly for Edrik Lee to score in the north-eastern corner in the 24th minute. It was the only four-pointer of the match.The Sharks also forced their way into the top eight for the first time after four rounds and next weekend remain at home to play the Sydney Roosters.The Storm is off across the Tasman Sea playing the Wests Tigers at Mt Smart Stadium in Auckland.
The thrust of this fourth article of the series focused on the value of trust for all relationships is on the lack of trust and the harm it can cause. We have made the point again and again in the series that trust is essential to all healthy relationships. Why and how? We shall delineate below. The third article on what it means and takes to trust God wholeheartedly observed the following key points:Trust in God involves acceptance and surrender. Hence to have faith or trust in God means one comes to a point of complete surrender to the demands of God, the key Object of trust. To trust God is to recognize him for who he is and who one is in her/his human nature. God is Almighty and most kind and merciful in his dealings with mankind. He is also a God of justice and great judgment. His love and grace move him to all sinners but his justice also requires that sin has to be dealt with.The practical and biblical way to deal sin is to admit it and ask God to help one deal with it. This requires repentance (a change of mind, followed by a change in attitude). Again and again the Bible says repent and believe and salvation shall be yours. Trust in the biblical sense of the word involves belief, emotions, intellect, will, and well considered actions. It entails the whole of the person who trusts or believes and leads to a serious change that requires turning away from certain things, persons and influences to a Person and his will and dictates. It demands turning away from to completely different mindset, attitudes and habits. To trust God totally means to abide in him. Jesus says, “Abide in me, as I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in me” (John 15:4-5). To abide is to be and remain connected, rooted and stuck to God under all circumstances and in all situations. Even when times are terrible and we feel abandoned by all, we stick in. This does not mean that we should trust God and sit and do nothing; rather we think hard, plan well and strive hard to achieve our goals and tasks in dependence upon God, assured, that he is with us, guiding, enabling and providing through our feeble efforts. Divine and human sincere efforts are a marvelous combination and do work wonders!The lack of trust of God and those we are supposed to trust lead to all sorts of problems. Indispensable institutions like marriage are undergirded by trust and the absence of trust destroys their very foundation and basis. When mortals refuse to trust God they turn to their own ways. The ways of man are always limited and often fail to address some of his acute needs such the spiritual side and the questions of life that go beyond money, physical and other earthly things. The deepest longing of the human heart requires a Supreme Being to satisfy.Marriages and other forms of vital relationships are destroyed or severely diminished when trust is lacking. No human being is perfect. No one can perfectly understand another person. There are weaknesses in every person. Trust is required in dealing with one another’s faults, in forgiving and bearing with each other.The lack of trust leads to suspicion of all kinds and suspicion can destroy relationships by too much negativity and imagining and attributing faults where they may not exist. Where there is distrust misunderstandings and misinterpretations abound. Mistrust, like hate, may cause people to lose their sense of objectivity and instead promote bias and subjectivity.Families and friends have fallen apart due to the lack of trust among them. Often what stands in the way of reconciliation and resolving conflicts is the lack of trust. One of the main tasks of those who negotiate peace and reconciliation is to restore and create the atmosphere of trust. International wars and civil conflicts have dragged on due to the lack of trust among disputing parties. Marriages become irreconcilable when trust is lost between the couples. Friends turn into enemies when trust is replaced by distrust or mistrust.One way to make this world and relationships better is to work on creating, maintaining and promoting trust of the right kind. Trust, the opposite of distrust, thrives when people are sincere and not necessarily perfect. Trust is advanced when communication, understanding and dialogue are nurtured. Lack of trust is responsible for many of our personal, communal and societal problems and genuine trust overcomes many of these problems.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
The body of an unidentified man was found in the bottom flat of a Timehri residence on Friday morning. The partially decomposed body was discovered by the occupant of the upper flat who immediately prompted the police.Details of this story will follow in the March 18th, 2017 edition of Guyana Times.
The Fort St. John RCMP’s Jail’n’Bail is taking place on Friday, September 8th at the Totem Mall beginning at 9:30 a.m. Full details can be found here. FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. — Two members of the Fort St. John RCMP Detachment are all geared up and ready to ride more than 800 kilometres next week to support cancer research.Cst. Tristan Williams and Cst. Rebecca Bojczuk will form the detachment’s contingency of riders in this year’s Cops for Cancer – Tour de North. The two officers will be getting some extra time off from work starting September 12th, but that doesn’t necessarily mean they won’t be working hard. The pair will be starting off in Williams Lake, and for six days will cover roughly 840 kilometres by bike to finish the Tour de North in Dawson Creek on September 18th.Cst. Bojczuk has some personal experience with the disease, after her friend beat breast cancer a number of years ago. For Cst. Williams in particular, participating in Tour de North this year is especially poignant. Both of his grandparents have battled cancer, and his aunt lost her fight against breast cancer earlier this year.- Advertisement -The two officers have been training hard since getting their road bikes back in May. Both officers say their toughest training ride so far in the Peace has been a ride from Fort St. John to Cache Creek near Bear Flats and back. “It was tough,” said Cst. Williams. “It was super fun to go down, but you’re really just one foot in front of the other on that one.”So far, Cst. Williams has individually raised close to $2,000 out of his $3,000 goal, while Cst. Bojczuk has raised $534 on her own, though the two officers both raised an additional $1,500 during a donation drive at Save-on-Foods in July.The two officers are hoping that Fort St. John can once again raise the most money in Northern B.C. during their Jail’n’Bail on Friday. Both the Dawson Creek and Chetwynd RCMP detachments raised $15,000 and $10,000 respectively during their Jail’n’Bail events, and the two officers are hoping to beat that this year.Advertisement

The 6-foot-9 starting point guard for the Beijing Aoshen Olympian Basketball Team has an injured back this week, but he won’t miss the game this Sunday. Beijing Aoshen is not just on the road this season, they are really far from home – from China’s capital to Rosemead. “Coming here to play games helps me very much,” Yue said. “Here everybody plays basketball – old men, young guys. This is a basketball country.” Yue’s team is now a part of American basketball culture – at least for this season. Beijing Aoshen practice in the Don Bosco High Technical Institute gym in Rosemead and live on the nearby University of the West campus, where they are also studying English. The team has joined the American Basketball Association and so far they are 1-0, winning their opener last week against the Fresno Heatwave. The team faces the Bellingham Slam on Sunday. An American coaching staff is training the team. Three of its players are also American. Aoshen joined the ABA in September and will stay in Rosemead through March. “This is a good opportunity for the team to play at a different level,” said Aoshen general manager George Pickering. Basketball has become a phenomenon in China, its popularity fueled by superstar Yao Ming. Young boys can be found playing hoops in rural Hunan Province in 105-degree weather and torrential rain. Lebron James knock-off basketball shoes stock store shelves from Beijing to the countryside of Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region. Televised Chinese Basketball Association games draw audiences of more than 600 million viewers, according to China’s state press. And Chinese players like 21-year old Yue are NBA prospects. Yue’s future is bright. Chinese officials announced this week he is on the short list of players, including Yao Ming, who will qualify for the Chinese Olympic basketball team in 2008. Forward Xin Jin said it’s hard to predict how Aoshen’s ABA season will go, but it’s nice to be away from the extreme weather conditions that make practicing a challenge in Beijing. “I will just try my best and try to win every game,” said the 6-foot-9-inch Xin. firstname.lastname@example.org (626) 962-8811, Ext. 2717
