WESTERN BUREAU:The three most dominant schools in Zone A of the 2016 Inter-Secondary Schools Sports Association (ISSA)/FLOW daCosta Cup football competition all logged fine victories yesterday as the zone begins to take shape.Cornwall College and St James High scored 3-0 and 1-0 victories over Irwin High and Anchovy High, respectively, while Green Pond turned back Maldon, also by a 1-0 margin.Clarendon College also ticked off another fine performance, stopping Edwin Allen 4-0 to remain in the lead in Group H, as did Glenmuir High, who defeated Porus High 4-0 at the Juici-Patties playing field to take charge in Zone M.Over in Zone K, Dinthill continued their fine run with an emphatic 6-0 trouncing of Guys Hill to solidify their lead.However, Cornwall College, minus striker Jourdane Fletcher, who was red-carded for an off-the-ball incident in their first game, were looking to stake a claim for pole position in a zone that is sure to have its own twists and turns.FANCY PLAYThey started well against Irwin, with Giovanni Reid, Garnett Hudson, Clifton Russell, and Michael Heaven making all the plays, demonstrating a degree of movement off the ball that was pleasing to the eye.They grabbed the lead in the 34th minute from a free-kick 26 yards out. Heaven unleashed a thunderous ‘grass cutter’ that left Irwin goalkeeper Ryheem Vassell grasping at air as the ball zipped into the back of the net.Cornwall had more to give in the second, and they added two more goals to complete the win and send them clear atop Zone A on a maximum six points from two matches, plus a healthy goal difference over St James, who also picked up three points yesterday at Jarrett Park.Tyreke Clarke netted in the 76th minute against a plucky Anchovy unit as St James kept pace with three more points to also maintain a 100 per cent win record. Green Pond recovered from their drawn first match to claim three vital points to be third in the zone on four points.Yesterday’s ResultsCornwall College 3 Irwin 0St James 1 Anchovy 0Green Pond 1 Maldon 0Garvey Maceo 4 Winston Jones 0Denbigh 0 Foga Road 2Glenmuir 4 Porus 0Bog Walk 0 Ewarton 1Clarendon College 4 Edwin Allen 0Thompson Town 1 Knox 0Steer Town 2 Ocho Rios 1Guys Hill 0 Dinthill 6Today’s matchesRusea’s vs Green PondBrimmervale vs TackyBlack River vs LacoviaMaggotty vs MunroNewell vs STETHSManchester vs DeCarteretMile Gully vs BelairBB Coke vs Cross KeysA.

1 Chelsea ended their pre-season campaign in style with a 4-2 win over Bundesliga side Werder Bremen.Having looked impressive under Antonio Conte so far this summer, the Blues took their performance levels up another notch in Germany, showing the kind of form that could win them the Premier League.Eden Hazard opened the scoring and Oscar doubled the lead early on – both grabbing their third goal of pre-season – before Werder pulled one back from the penalty spot – ex-Blue Claudio Pizarro converting the spot kick.Diego Costa quickly restored the two-goal lead, and the second-half saw a raft of changes, before Lennart Thy managed to pull the result back to 3-2. Pedro grabbed the final goal for the game in the dying minutes, again restoring the two-goal lead.You can watch all the Chelsea goals below, as they impressed in their final pre-season outing… Diego Costa scored his first goal of the season against Werder Bremen
“The government’s allegations of wrongdoing have been categorically denied by the indicted partners, and the firm intends to join with them in vigorously defending against the charges,” it said. Bershad’s attorney, Andrew Lawler, said his client “categorically denies the allegations of the indictment.” Lawler also asserted that the use of the racketeering law was unjustified. A telephone message seeking comment from Selzer was not immediately returned. There was no answer at a telephone listing for Lazar. The indictment alleged that “unlike other class members in the lawsuits, the paid plaintiffs purchased the securities at issue anticipating that the securities would decline in value, in order to position themselves to be named plaintiffs in securities fraud class actions and to obtain kickbacks” from the firm and others. On Tuesday, the firm announced that Bershad and Schulman were taking leaves of absence. Selzer was charged with acting as an intermediary in the payment of the kickbacks to Lazar and others. The indictment charged the firm, Bershad and Schulman with conspiring to obstruct justice, make false declarations under oath in court proceedings, commit mail and wire fraud, and to make illegal payments to a witness. Those three defendants were also charged with mail fraud counts, conspiring to commit money laundering, and criminal forfeiture. Bershad and Schulman were charged with racketeering conspiracy. Lazar was charged with conspiracy, racketeering conspiracy, mail fraud, money laundering, false tax returns and obstruction of justice. Selzer was charged with the money laundering conspiracy and criminal forfeiture.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

One of the nation’s highest profile class-action law firms and two of its top partners were indicted by a federal grand jury Thursday on charges alleging a scheme that paid more than $11 million in illegal kickbacks to get people to serve as plaintiffs in lawsuits. In a 102-page indictment, New York-based Milberg Weiss, Bershad & Schulman, and attorneys David J. Bershad and Steven G. Schulman were charged with secretly paying about $2.4 million to Seymour M. Lazar, a Palm Springs lawyer involved in real estate, and others to act as class-action plaintiffs since 1981 and concealing the payments. Lazar was also named in the indictment along with Paul L. Selzer, another lawyer from Palm Springs. The indictment’s 20 counts included conspiracy, racketeering conspiracy, money laundering, mail fraud, filing false tax returns, obstruction of justice and criminal forfeiture.

This benefited Milberg Weiss by in many cases allowing the firm to be among the first to file a lawsuit on behalf of shareholders.” The government seeks to recover at least $216 million in “tainted attorneys’ fees.” The charges follow years of investigation into the way Milberg Weiss conducts shareholder lawsuits against major corporations, which the indictment alleges generated hundreds of millions of dollars in attorneys’ fees. The firm was a lead plaintiff in more than half the federal shareholder suits settled from 1997 to 2004. The law firm defended itself in a statement posted on its Web site.

What would you change about how you approach discovery work if you went into with the mindset that your dream client would help you learn how to pitch them in a way that makes it easy to say “yes?”Early in the sales process you get an opportunity to ask questions that will help you craft your proposal and your solution. You get opportunities to ask about the most important factors your dream client will weigh when making a decision.

If you pay attention and capture what you hear, you’ll gain the insights and the language that makes it easier for your dream client to buy from you.Right Over the PlateThis sounds easy when you write it this way, doesn’t it?

Chelsea boss Lampard admits Mourinho his biggest influenceby Paul Vegasa month agoSend to a friendShare the loveChelsea boss Frank Lampard admits Jose Mourinho has the biggest influence on his coaching.Despite also playing under Claudio Ranieri, Luiz Felipe Scolari, Carlo Ancelotti, Rafa Benitez and Guus Hiddink, it is Mourinho who made the biggest impression on the fledgling Chelsea boss.”I’ve been influenced by all the managers I’ve played under but probably Jose (Mourinho) as much, if not more, than anyone else,” Lampard told Sky Sports News.”He was the one at the point of my career when my performances and mind set got better, giving me a lot of confidence within the team.”So I try to act like that with my players now, trying to have a personal relationship with them which means driving them every day to be better, trying to help them to be confident and understand what they need to do to keep going up the levels as a player.”So I took a lot from Jose but I certainly don’t want to be typecast as trying to be a Jose person because I am my own person.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say
Vine/Josh ParcellUNC and other ACC schools have done a great job of honoring legendary Tar Heels coach Dean Smith since his passing, but the opening to today’s game at the Dean Dome may be the best tribute yet. UNC, which is playing its first game at home since losing Coach Smith, ran his signature “four corners” offense in its first possession. Even better—Brice Johnson scored on the play.That is just about the coolest thing you’ll see in college basketball today. Well done, Tar Heels.
