(AP Photo/Mary Altaffer)NEW YORK — Mixed martial arts star Conor McGregor expressed regret Thursday for a backstage melee at a Brooklyn arena that saw him caught on camera hurling a hand truck at a bus full of fighters, and he is negotiating a plea deal to resolve criminal charges in the case.The Irish brawler, 29, and his friend, fellow fighter and co-defendant Cian Cowley, 25, remained free on bail after a court appearance that went quicker than a typical five-minute round in the UFC octagon. They each face up to seven years in prison on a top charge of felony criminal mischief, but a deal would almost certainly reduce or eliminate their time behind bars.ADVERTISEMENT LATEST STORIES WORLD CUP: Saudi women in Russia to support team, reinforce new image China population now over 1.4 billion as birthrate falls A UFC spokesman did not immediately respond to questions about McGregor’s future with the organization.McGregor, widely known for his fight-related antics, was seen on camera attacking the bus in a Barclays Center loading dock after a press event ahead of UFC 223, which featured the sport’s biggest card of the year.He and an entourage that UFC president Dana White described as “20 hoodlums that flew in from Ireland” crashed the event allegedly looking for retaliation against main event fighter Khabib Nurmagomedov, who had been in an altercation with McGregor’s friend, Artem Lobov.Video showed McGregor tossing trash cans and being blocked from throwing a barricade before he launched the hand truck. Nurmagomedov was on the bus and said he had to be restrained to keep from fighting McGregor.Fighters Michael Chiesa and Ray Borg were hurt by shattered glass, forcing them from their bouts.White said McGregor justified the confrontation in a text exchange just before he turned himself in to police.

Margibi County Service Center Outlines Revenue Achievements

first_img(LINA) The Margibi County Service Center has outlined its achievements including revenue generated for the month of July 2018 with Birth Registration accounting for a little over half of the amount generated for the reporting period.Based on the report, the total number of Birth Registration was 141 through the Ministry of Health, accounting for 40.8% of total services, followed by Business Registration through the Ministry of Commerce, (93), accounting for 26.9% and Traditional Marriage Certificates, (51) through the Ministry of Internal Affairs, constituting 14.8% of all services for the month of July, 2018.The Liberia News Agency, quoting a copy of a report for the Month of July 2018 addressed to the Superintendent of Margibi County, Jerry Varnie, indicated that during the month of July 2018, a total of 345 services were rendered by various Ministries, Agencies, and Commissions (MACs), at the service center.The report also includes a total of 145 generally non-sex dis-aggregated services (42%), 51 couple (14.8%), 73 males (21.2%), and 76 females (22%), among others.The report shows a total of 345 services rendered in various categories for the month of July 2018 but with a decrease in the overall services rendered as compared to the figure of 544 registered for the month of June 2018.The low revenue generation is however attributed to government’s new regulation that the Center for National Documents and Record Agency, (CNDRA), and the Ministry of Education, (MoE) School Registration should not submit any of their reports to the Margibi County Authority Service Center until further notice.Given these factors, and among others led to the drastic reduction in revenue generation at the Margibi County Service Center in kakata for the month of July 2018.During the month of July 2018, a total of L$349,880 and US$6,710in  revenue was generated at the Service Center.In terms of Liberian Dollars, Business Registration ranks the highest with L$178,200 or 50.9% of the total Liberian Dollars followed by vehicle registration, L$167,680, constituting 47.9% and school registration of L$6,000 amounting to 1.2% for the month of July, 2018.The overall figures reported for the month of July 2018, L$349,880 and US$6,710 also indicates that a decrease in revenue generation compared to June 2018 revenue intake of L$ 2,276,899.65 and US$14,255 which shows a 52.9% decrease in USD and 84.6% decrease also in Liberian Dollars.The report further stated that the Ministry of Commerce and Industries, (MOCI) has indicated Foreign Businesses with Branches in Margibi County pays their branches registration fees in Monrovia through their headquarters thus causing a drop in the United States Dollars.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Prehistoric mammoth tusk discovered in the North Peace

first_imgA number of mammoth tusks and teeth have been unearthed in the Peace region over the past century, according to the centre’s press release, including from Hudson’s Hope and Taylor.The exact age of this tusk can not be confirmed, but the centre is estimating all of the prehistoric specimens discovered range in age from 10,500 to 40,000 years-old.“It is a haunting, evocative concept that this ‘American elephant’ may have coexisted with and been seen by some of the first human occupants of the land, such as at the remarkable Tse’k’wa site near Charlie Lake,” the press release concludes.The centre discovered dinosaur tracks near near Williston Lake three weeks ago that they say covers an area the size of a parking lot. The Treaty 8 Tribal Association, in partnership with local government, helped bring this tusk to the attention of the palaeontology centre.Karen Aird, the Cultural Heritage Advisor for the Treaty 8 Tribal Association and the Tse’K’wa Heritage Society says the tusk was found in close proximity to the recently found prehistoric horse bone – reportedly 30,000 years old.“Both of these finds are near the Peace River and are yet another indicator of the rich and diverse history of the region and Treaty 8 territory,” says Aird. “Our First Nation communities have many oral traditions describing the giant animals, but there is little scientific baseline data. Right now, with all the major projects in the region, including the proposed Site C dam, there is an immense and urgent need to further gather, understand and protect this ancient heritage.”The tusk is now destined to be a prime exhibit in the Dinosaur Discovery Gallery in Tumbler Ridge as part of an Ice Age display, which includes the recently recovered, 12,400 year old Tumbler Ridge bison skull.Advertisement The exact location of the discovery can not be confirmed in time for publication.An initial press release from the centre says the tusk is in near-perfect condition, with the exception of some loose pieces near its end which are now being reconstructed “in a jigsaw puzzle fashion” by Tumbler Ridge Museum staff.Left alone after being exposed to natural elements, the centre warns it can begin to flake and eventually fall apart from the inside-out. Once completed, the centre’s collections manager Lisa Buckley, alongside her staff, will create numerous replicas to be put on display elsewhere. There are also plans to have carbon dating preformed.- Advertisement -The tusk, weighing over 25 kilograms and measuring nearly two metres in length, is being donated to the centre by the couple who initially discovered it, Tom and Thelma Ostero.Local palaeontologist Rick McCrea is expressing his appreciation for the donation.“I am gratified by the general good-heartedness of people from the Peace region,” says McCrea. “The donors’ primary concern was for the proper long-term care of this significant fossil specimen. That kind of attitude makes it a privilege to work as a palaeontologist in this region and help display and promote its proud geo-heritage, which has few equals in the world.”Advertisementlast_img read more

LaBarbera makes mark in Kings’ win

first_img“It’s huge for everyone in this room, not only myself but every guy in the room,” said LaBarbera, who replaced Jean-Sebastien Aubin for the final period of a 4-3 loss in Calgary on Thursday. “We played well the last three games and played well last night and just didn’t get the result. It’s nice to be able to come in here and get the win.” LaBarbera, a Vancouver native, was stuck in the AHL while the Kings went through five goalies last season. But they couldn’t recall him despite the fact he was en route to earning AHL Goalie of the Year honors because of fears they would lose him on recallable waivers. This year was supposed to be LaBarbera’s big chance, but instead he watched as prize rookie Jonathan Bernier started four of the first six games before being sent back down to junior hockey earlier this week. He watched Aubin start the next two before making his third start Friday, winning his first NHL game since April 2006 and giving the Kings their first road win in four tries. Matt Cooke beat him on a rebound in the first period, and Mattias Ohlund scored on a high blast over his glove with 5:47 left. But LaBarbera made a game-saving glove stop on a similar shot by Taylor Pyatt with 4:01 left, then preserved the win by stopping Brendan Morrison alone in tight with 1:02 left. “All his saves were huge,” Cammalleri said. “It’s been well documented we’ve had our troubles starting from the back end the last few years. But like a lot of the guys that have played with Barbs before, I’m not shocked. This guy can play.” Roberto Luongo made 12 saves for the Canucks, who have lost four of five at home. It was the second straight game Vancouver has been undone by one bad stretch. They lost to San Jose on Monday after giving up three goals in a 3:20 span early in the third period, and were undone Friday by three goals in a 6:53 stretch. “For some reason we’re getting five, six minutes putting us behind the 8-ball and it’s a tough league to come back in,” Canucks coach Alain Vigneault said. Johnson, a prized defensive prospect playing his first full season, converted a pass from Kyle Calder on a 3-on-1 after a bad Canucks giveaway, and Cammalleri gave the Kings the lead on a power play. Luongo made a save on Cammalleri alone in front and managed to stop the rebound, but the forward was untouched and converted on his third try. “One of the top scorers in the NHL gets three whacks at a puck in front of our net there’s a good chance it’s going to end up behind him,” Vigneault said. Frolov finished the burst with a tap-in from the side of the net after a great fake shot slap pass from defenseman Lubomir Visnovsky.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

I struggled a bit early but hopefully I can just build off this and take it from here because I know I’m capable of doing it.” After using eight goaltenders since the start of last season, the Kings would love to see LaBarbera take control of the crease. He started early against the Canucks, making nine saves while stopping all four power plays in the first period, then robbing Alexandre Burrows on the two-man break 1:24 into the second. The Kings’ offense broke out less than two minutes later, scoring three times in just over seven minutes. Jack Johnson scored his first NHL goal at 3:04 for the Kings. Mike Cammalleri added his NHL-leading eighth goal on a power play at 5:41 and Alexander Frolov made it 3-1 at 9:57. Dustin Brown was credited with an empty-net goal with 23 seconds left as the Kings won for the second time in three games after losing five straight. NHL: Goaltender’s stop on a break sparks a momentum switch in a victory over Vancouver. By The Associated Press VANCOUVER, British Columbia – Jason LaBarbera knows the Kings’ No. 1 goaltender job is up for grabs. He made a strong case to hold onto it Friday night. LaBarbera made 26 saves, including stopping a 2-on-none break early in the second period that sparked a three-goal outburst, to lead the Kings to a 4-2 victory over the Vancouver Canucks. last_img read more

Bradford 1-3 Millwall: Lions take two-goal advantage into second leg

first_img1 Millwall manager Neil Harris Millwall took a big step towards Wembley by coming from behind to win 3-1 at Bradford in the first leg of their Sky Bet League One play-off semi-final.First-half goals from Lee Gregory, Steve Morison and Joe Martin turned the tie in the Lions’ favour ahead of Friday’s return game after the Bantams had taken the lead through Tony McMahon’s early penalty.There was a raucous atmosphere inside Valley Parade all afternoon, although it was temporarily subdued ahead of kick-off by an emotional minute-long applause in memory of former Bantam Chris Mitchell, who died earlier this month at the age of 27.Spurred on by the vocal backing, the home side were given the perfect opportunity to seize the initiative when Lions left-back Martin handled in the box following Jamie Proctor’s header across goal.McMahon was perhaps lucky to still be on the pitch to take the penalty following a coming together with Millwall’s Chris Taylor as he waited to take the kick. Referee Dean Whitestone opted to book the Bradford player and he duly stepped up to send goalkeeper Jordan Archer the wrong way with 13 minutes played.The goal prompted the noise levels inside the stadium to increase further, but the City supporters were not smiling for long.Lions top-scorer Gregory, on his first start since April 19 following a double hernia, controlled Morison’s nod down in the area two minutes later and turned to fire his 26th goal of the season into the bottom left corner.Filipe Morais then flashed a volley wide for Bradford before the visitors turned the game on its head 11 minutes prior to the break.Shane Ferguson sent in an out-swinging corner from the left and captain Morison rose highest to head home off the underside of the crossbar.Millwall are aiming for an immediate return to the Championship following relegation last season, and full-back Martin atoned for his early error by extending their lead in the final minute of the half.Gregory was adjudged to have been fouled 25 yards from goal and Martin impressively curled the resulting free-kick past the dive of Bradford keeper Ben Williams and into the left corner.Portuguese midfielder Morais should have reduced the deficit eight minutes into the second period but he somehow shot wide with the goal gaping after Proctor had robbed Carlos Edwards and teed him up.Phil Parkinson’s side, who have not been in the second tier since 2004, dominated the second period and defender Nathan Clarke almost scrambled the ball home following a corner.Keeper Archer then had to be alert to tip over a header from Nathan Clarke, while Lee Evans curled narrowly wide from a free-kick from distance.The Londoners offered little attacking threat after the break but their dogged defending was enough to ensure they take a two-goal advantage back to The Den.last_img read more
