After fumbling the ball over to the Rams (2-3) twice, the Jackrabbits scored the only points they needed on a 3-yard run by Ryan Smith, one of his two rushing touchdowns on the night. “I thought, /\x27/Here we go again with the turnovers,” ‘ said Poly coach Raul Lara, whose team had a half-dozen turnovers last week. “We were having a little problem with the exchange between our quarterback and running back. We fixed that, but that still shouldn’t be happening.” Wide receiver Terrence Austin added two first-half touchdowns as Gabriel Thomas found him for scores of 13 and 7 yards. Austin finished the game with five catches for 132 yards. Thomas’ other TD pass was a 73-yarder to Travon Patterson. Two decades ago this season, Millikan High won its last Moore League football title in style. Moments after an interception, the Rams scored the go-ahead touchdown with 13 seconds remaining to down rival Poly in the 1985 season finale. It was the last time Millikan downed Poly. History certainly didn’t repeat itself Friday night. Despite suffering through some of the same turnover issues that haunted them a week prior, the visiting Jackrabbits (3-2) scored at will en route to a 65-6 league-opening victory. Thomas was 7 of 8 for 229 yards before he gave way in the second half. Thanks to an 89-yard TD run, Ellis Anderson was Poly’s leading rusher with 96 yards on only three carries. The Jackrabbits special teams made sure they weren’t left out in the scoring department; Gerald Bailey ran a blocked field goal attempt back 75 yards and Patterson had a 52-yard punt return. But Dominic Jackson kept the Rams from leaving their field empty handed. After Poly scored to go up 65-0, he broke a handful of tackles on his way to an 83-yard kickoff return with 1:20 remaining in regulation. “My kids never quit all the way to the end,” Diego said. ” They are the hardest workers on the planet.” — A.J.

Guidance Counsellor at the Clonmel Primary and Junior High School, Charmaine Forbes, says the plan has her full endorsement. Story Highlights It was launched on February 8, in Port Maria, St. Mary, by Minister of Labour and Social Security, Hon. Shahine Robinson. Educators are welcoming the Government’s $5.9-million incentive programme, which is aimed at increasing secondary-school attendance by students benefiting under the Programme of Advancement Through Health and Education (PATH). Educators are welcoming the Government’s $5.9-million incentive programme, which is aimed at increasing secondary-school attendance by students benefiting under the Programme of Advancement Through Health and Education (PATH).The programme, dubbed ‘School Days Count’, is a two-year initiative and will roll out between February and April in 34 institutions that have below-70 per cent attendance levels.It was launched on February 8, in Port Maria, St. Mary, by Minister of Labour and Social Security, Hon. Shahine Robinson.Speaking with JIS News, Principal of Jackson Primary and Junior High School in St. Mary, Michelle Thomas, highlighted that it was a positive a move that will result in added benefits to the children.“It is a very good initiative, and it will increase the attendance,” she states.Guidance Counsellor at the Clonmel Primary and Junior High School, Charmaine Forbes, says the plan has her full endorsement.“I am glad that they are rolling it out so that everybody can buy into it,” she shares with JIS News.For his part, Teacher at the Port Maria High School in the Parish, Joel Bromfield, welcomed the initiative and notes that students who attend school on a regular basis, generally tend to perform better.“I am appealing to the parents… send them out, because you want them to succeed and this increases the likelihood of them achieving more,” he states.The Programme will offer a range of cash and non-cash incentives to parents and schools to boost student turnout. These include 10 scholarships, each valued at $250,000, to students who will be starting tertiary studies in September 2018.In addition, there will be a combination of initiatives such as a media campaign; Attendance Fairs in 13 of the most affected schools; and ongoing parent education and interactions in the 34 schools that have recorded attendance compliance rates of below70 per cent.There will also be a ‘Never Been Absent Stars’ (NBA) competition within the targeted schools, aimed at identifying PATH beneficiaries who have not been absent over the period September 4, 2017 to March 28, 2018.All winners will be awarded NBA badges, and will be eligible to compete for one of five book vouchers valued at $15,000. Additionally, under the Competition, ten grade-11 PATH beneficiaries, will be identified and awarded scholarships.Meanwhile, Minister Robinson tells JIS News that the culture of seeing Fridays as not important for children to attend school must be broken.“Friday is an important day, and we are depending on the Councillors, the Members of Parliament, [and all] positive role models who can instil in students and parents that staying in school is important,” she reasons.She cited a survey which found that as many as 72.2 per cent of non-compliant PATH students oftentimes do not attend school on Fridays, adding that up to 53.2 per cent of them stop attending school prior to the end of the term.Also, administrators at PATH have noted with concern the decline in attendance among its beneficiary students at the secondary level, particularly over the last five years, with compliance rates as low as 35 per cent in some schools, during academic year 2015/2016.Minister Robinson states that her Ministry’s safety net assessments have indicated that a child with an annual 85 per cent attendance, would have missed the equivalent of up to six weeks of classes, or 180 lessons.“It follows therefore that the onus is on all parents to ensure that their children attend school, at all times, to ensure that they benefit optimally from the education opportunities being offered, whether they are PATH beneficiaries are not,” she states.Director of PATH, Elsa Marks-Willis, says that while public education surrounding the consequences of chronic absenteeism is critical, “it must be balanced with promotion of the benefits of regular attendance”.PATH is an initiative by the Government of Jamaica with support from donor partners such as the World Bank, Inter-American Development Bank and other multilateral and bilateral agencies.It is aimed at delivering benefits by way of cash grants to the poorest and most vulnerable persons in the society.The programme is administrated by the Ministry of Labour and Social Security, and the main objectives are to increase educational attainment and improve health outcomes of the poor, break the intergenerational cycle of poverty, reduce child labour by requiring children to have minimum attendance in school, and serve as a safety net by preventing families from falling further into poverty in the event of adverse shock.

Mumbai: The rise in banks’ profitability, thanks to a steady decline in dud assets, can give a 0.60- percent boost to GDP in fiscal 2020, says a report. This will be possible due to the rise in profits on the back of a decline in credit costs, which is the money that banks set aside to deal with bad loans, will help banks lend more money to productive purposes, it said. “The fall in credit costs implies a positive supply impact of 1.40 percent to credit growth, which can boost real investment growth by 2 percent and real GDP growth by 0.60 percent financial year,” a report by American brokerage Goldman Sachs said Monday. Also Read – Thermal coal import may surpass 200 MT this fiscalThe Reserve Bank earlier this month pegged FY20 GDP print at 7.2 percent, down 20 bps from its February forecast. The brokerage estimates credit costs as a proportion of the total outstanding loans will nearly halve to 1.20 percent in FY20 from the peak of 2.30 percent in FY18. In absolute terms, the fall will be to the tune of Rs 1.9 lakh crore from Rs 3.3 lakh crore. Credit growth has already been coming in at a multi- year high for the last few fortnights, and printed at 13.24 per cent for the fortnight to March 29. Also Read – Food grain output seen at 140.57 mt in current fiscal on monsoon boostThe brokerage report said for the past nine years, the banking system has grappled with non-performing assets, where ballooning credit costs impaired their capital, constrained credit supply, and was associated with a decline in credit and investment growth. Improvements in credit supply will now more likely stem from an improvement in banks’ profitability on a normalisation of bank credit costs, it said. This will be achieved on the back of more benign trends in stress loans and the healthier NPA provisioning ratios that “proactive policies have engendered over the past two years”, it said. The report said boost to credit growth can be higher if credit costs are lower, banks continue to substitute away from bonds into credit to the real economy, or raise more capital than the baseline. However, on the flipside, growth can be impacted by up to 0.15 percent if some of the assumptions do not come true, it warned.
An impressive UCL campaign has seen Barcelona end their quarter-final curse (2016-2018) and reach the 8th semi-final in the last 12 years. As the only European giant standing in the elite competition, Barcelona is pipped as favourites to lift the trophy for the 6th time. Subduing Inter and Spurs in the group stage and Lyon in last 16, Barça were matched against Manchester United in a rematch of the two UCL finals (2009, 2011). And, similar to those finals, Barcelona triumphed owing to the brilliance of their talisman Lionel Messi who is in dazzling form leading the scoring charts with ten goals. Barcelona’s balanced performance in attack, midfield, defence as well as a calm and cautious goalkeeper means it would be an apt test of Liverpool’s overly attacking gameplay. They have conceded less and Camp Nou’s effectively a fortress with Barça unbeaten in Europe since 2013. Drawn against second favourites Liverpool means this semi-final will be a goal fest given the firepower both sides possess. Barça possesses the flair, experience, and vision to make it to Madrid but will have to be careful given the scintillating form the Reds are in. Also Read – Puducherry on top after 8-wkt win over Chandigarh Gameplay: Possession, high-press and pace on the break remain Barça’s dominant traits. Their mesmerising momentum shift, sharp passing, crisp one-twos, delicate through-balls and devastating long balls are capable of unlocking any defence. Key Players: Lionel Messi and Luis SuárezMemories of the final defeat last season to Real Madrid must have brought a horde of realisations and ensuing improvisations – strengthening defence for starters. Liverpool possesses the deadliest attacking trio right now with the possibility of goals coming from any direction. Klopp’s two years at the helm have created a team that does not sit back waiting for a chance on the break but instead looks forward to orchestrating the game, with reinvigorated counter-attacks and a better conversion rate of attempts to the goal. Liverpool came out of group stage courtesy of more goals after being tied on points and head-to-head with Napoli. Removing Bayern Munich in a sensational away match performance in last 16, Liverpool’s quarter-final clash against Porto was a cake walk (Agg. 6-1). Making it to a consecutive semi-final, the Reds’ bolstered defence and ultra-high pressing will certainly cause problems for the Spanish giants. Pursuing a neck-to-neck league title race against City, Liverpool will have to tactically rotate the squad in order to produce the sublime performance they have, so far or they could jeopardise chances of silverware in both competitions. Also Read – Vijender’s next fight on Nov 22, opponent to be announced later Gameplay: Strong defence, explosive pressing and the in-form attacking trio provide balance to the team. A serious counter-attacking threat, Liverpool can unleash Mane and Salah through long balls creating certain goal opportunities. Key Players: Virgil van Dijk and Mo SalahHaving brushed aside league rivals Manchester City in a high-octane match, Spurs has already made history. Their first semi-final berth in 57 years of Europe’s elite competition was achieved in a dramatic fashion trumping the citizens who were favourites to win and advancing on away goals. A seven-goal thriller with a meandering scoreboard kept everyone at the edge of their seats till the final whistle as City failed to overturn the aggregate deficit despite winning 4-3 on the night. Spurs are accredited with an admirable fighting spirit which has brought them from being almost out of the group stage to a maiden UCL semi-final appearance. The 1-0 home victory against Inter and late Lucas Moura goal at Camp Nou on the last matchday facilitated their progress from the group stage based on a better head-to-head record against Inter. In the round of 16, they edged past an in-form Dortmund with a comfortable 4-0 aggregate score. Spurs’ all-out attack might just leave them vulnerable to Ajax’s sustained gameplay and it would be better if they balance their efforts while not letting Ajax get an away goal. Gameplay: Spurs maintain an average possession while stressing on counter attacks to surprise opponents owing to their great speed on the break. Pochettino’s ‘attack is the best defence’ strategy fits their narrative. Key players: Son Heung-Min and C EriksonWith an exhilarating performance at Turin to reach the semi-finals after 20 years, Ajax has demonstrated that efficient team dynamics can outclass big fishes owing to one simple fact: Football is a team game. Smooth passing, neat one-twos, flexible yet maintained team positioning and balanced attack and defence have all accounted for Ajax’s dream run in the UCL this season. Having not lost a single game back in the group stage, Ajax has since taken on European heavyweights one after another and produced beautiful football. Drawing both matches against Bayern, defeating Real Madrid in Bernabéu (1-4) and usurping favourites Juventus to book a place in the semi-finals, a team of youngsters has left the world in awe of its resilience and skill. Led by 19-year-old Matthijs de Ligt, this Ajax side has suddenly stimulated the global audience with its vibrant and young squad outplaying the veterans of UCL. For Ajax, style is not an alternative to substance but a route to it and through its unwavering faith and high-performance tempo, they have axed their way through to the top four. In a match of comparative underdogs, Ajax might just trump Spurs owing to their majestic form this season. Gameplay: Displaying total football in all its glory, Ajax’s philosophy of high-pressing, more possession and controlled tempo fits their explosive energy. Key Players: Frenkie de Jong and Matthijs de Ligt
