Stoke City have either kept a clean sheet (3) or conceded exactly four goals (3) in each of their last six Premier League games against Manchester City (W2 D1 L3). Manchester City have won their last two home games in the Premier League each by a 5-0 scoreline – the only other Premier League side to record three consecutive home wins each by a five or more goal margin were Chelsea in 2010 under Carlo Ancelotti. Stoke have lost 15 of their last 16 away top-flight matches (D1) against teams who’ve started that day in top spot – their last away win against a side top of the league came in April 1972 against Manchester City under Tony Waddington. Only one goalkeeper has conceded fewer goals in his first seven Premier League starts than Ederson (2) – Petr Cech, who conceded once. TV COVERAGE & KICK-OFF TIME The match is not being televised in the UK, with extended highlights to be shown on Match of the Day, which airs on BBC One at 22:20 BST on Saturday.

VICTIMS OF HUMAN TRAFFICKING TO RECEIVE HELP

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Related Items:clyde edwards, human trafficing, jamaica, jamaica pegasus hotel, United Nations Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppKINGSTON, Jan. 8 (JIS) – Persons who have been victims of human trafficking are to be assisted with rebuilding their lives, through proceeds from this year’s staging of the National Leadership Prayer Breakfast.This was announced during a press briefing held at the Jamaica Pegasus Hotel in Kingston today (January 8) to launch the event.Providing details on the social project to be undertaken this year, Secretary of the National Leadership Prayer Breakfast Committee (NLPBC), Clyde Edwards, said it would be incorporated into proposed plans by the Ministry of Justice and the United Church in Negril “to help those who have gone through the trafficking challenge and to provide for them housing and rehabilitation.”Human trafficking is estimated by the United Nations to be a US$32-billion per year global trade.Jamaica is a source, transit, and destination country for women and children trafficked for the purposes of sexual exploitation and forced labour. However, the Government has been working to combat the issue of human trafficking, with the establishment of the National Task Force Against Trafficking in Persons (NATFATIP); amendment of the Trafficking in Persons Act in 2013; an islandwide public education campaign; and the establishment of a new shelter to house victims.Additionally, the administration has equipped the police force to treat with human trafficking offences by establishing an anti-Trafficking in Persons (TIP) Unit in the Major Organised Crime and Anti-Corruption Agency of the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF).(more)Victims…2In the meantime, highlighting the importance of the theme for the event: ‘Restore…Reconnect…Rebuild with God’, Chairman of the NLPBC, Rev. Dr. Stevenson Samuels, said the committee considers it necessary to challenge the nation to rebuild and reconnect with God.“As nations enter into new periods of growth and development, the need for rebuilding and reconstruction becomes very necessary, old systems and models become outdated and archaic. They therefore become irrelevant for the new circumstances which face the nation,” he said.Rev. Samuels noted that many citizens, including members of the Diaspora, are calling for the creation of a new Jamaica where peace and respect will be major features of the society. He said that while the committee joins in this call, it recognises that the change has already begun, pointing to the improved performance in Grade Six Achievement Test (GSAT) and the Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC) examinations; more young people accessing tertiary education; and that new entities have been established to promote integrity and eradicate corruption.This is the 35th staging of the event, which will be held at the Jamaica Pegasus on Thursday (January 15), starting at 7:30 a.m., under the patronage of the Governor-General, His Excellency the Most Hon. Sir Patrick Allen. The speaker will be pastor from the Calvary Baptist Church in Montego Bay,Rev. Everton Jackson.The event will be preceded by a week of prayer (formerly referred to as a prayer blitz), which begins today (January 8). Attendance at the event is by invitation only and includes leaders of the church, State and civic life. The event will be carried live on the Internet and on television.The purpose of the annual prayer breakfast is to foster greater unity in the nation, particularly among leaders at all levels, through prayer and fellowship. The first prayer breakfast was held in January 1981 arising out of the church’s concern for peace and justice, reconciliation and unity in the nation.Victoria Mutual Building Society (VMBS) has been sponsoring the event for the past 30 years.

Remains of three victims recovered from plane wreckage near Volcan Mountain

Greg Rylaarsdam said.After firefighters extinguished the 12-acre blaze ignited by the crash, deputies discovered the bodies Sunday morning. However, the challenging territory made it impossible to move the remains except by helicopter, and high winds prevented the sheriff’s aircraft from reaching the remote canyon until Monday.“Our number-one mission and priority (was) to get those souls off the mountain,” Rylaarsdam said.The lieutenant described the crash site in a gorge known as Arkansas Canyon as a “treacherous climb, in and out,” and likened reaching it by foot as “hiking almost down the face of a cliff.”Making matters worse were the still-smoldering remnants of the vegetation fire. The ground was so hot that firefighters warned the sheriff’s search team Saturday that their ropes and boots would melt if they tried hiking down to the aircraft wreckage.On Sunday, still wary of using climbing lines, Cal Fire crews laid down dry hoses that sheriff’s personnel were able to use to climb down to the crash site, the lieutenant said.The remains will be turned over to the San Diego County Medical Examiner’s Office for identification and family-notification purposes.Officials believe that the crashed plane was a twin-engine Beechcraft Duchess that was registered at El Cajon’s Gillespie Field. The aircraft was due to land at Ramona Airport on Thursday night but never showed up and remains unaccounted for.A Julian resident reported seeing a plane going down near Volcan Mountain around 8:30 p.m. Thursday. Less than 30 minutes later, authorities got word that a brush fire had erupted in the same general area.An NTSB contractor was at the crash site this morning, Rylaarsdam said. The federal agency is responsible for identifying the plane and investigating the crash. Authorities were hoping that there were large enough pieces of the plane left to allow for identification of the wreckage, Rylaarsdam said.While working to get the bodies out of the crash site, officials also gathered pieces of the demolished aircraft to aid in the investigation.“We have not yet been able to confirm whether or not the wreckage of this plane is the missing plane from Gillespie Field,” the lieutenant said.Though the blaze, dubbed the Volcan Fire, was fully contained as of this morning, firefighters expected to remain at the scene at least until midweek, monitoring the burn area and snuffing out remaining hot spots, Cal Fire spokesman Issac Sanchez said.
